My dog Pipper has always had a hard time digesting certain dog food’s because the pieces of dog food themselves are too big for her. After searching on wikipedia for a long time I came across Beneful dog food. Luckily for Pipper Beneful has many different dog food options. Due to the problem we were having I was in search on for a dog food that was made up of smaller bites so that Pipper would be able to digest her dog food normally. The great thing about Beneful is that they can be purchased online via Amazon. Not only do they have dog food in smaller bites but they have a dry and a wet dog food option (click here: https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/) which is great for a dog like Pipper who sometimes enjoys wet dog food and sometimes would rather have dry dog food. Pipper’s favorite dry dog food is the Beneful Incredibites. Pipper’s favorite flavor’s of the dry dog food Beneful Incredibites is Incredibites with real beef and also the one that has real chicken in it. Along with the dry dog food, Incredibites Beneful offers wet dog food Incredibites. When it comes to the wet dog food Incredibites Pipper’s favorite kind is the salmon flavor. In the salmon flavor, there is also carrots, tomatoes, and wild rice. Pipper’s second favorite wet dog food that is under the Incredibites category is the chicken which like the salmon includes carrots, tomatoes, and wild rice. Thanks to Beneful Pipper is able to eat dog food that is not only easy to digest but is also extremely nutritious for her.

Athleisure Is Making Old Rules For Fashion Look Silly

Posted by SugarMusic on

The athleisure movement is bringing about a new way of dressing that is freeing up women to wear anything they want to wear. These women will be able to wear anything they want including yoga pants, and that is going to be their new style for every day. The athleisure movement got a rundown in Vogue, and people who are watching the style are wondering how people are going to wear athleisure all day.

The idea behind athleisure is to make sure that people are able to be comfortable and wear something that is easy to adapt to the situation. Women will wear yoga pants or tights to the gym, and they also need to leave the gym to do other things during the day. They need to be able to change fast because they have no time. Kate Hudson started Fabletics on instagram because she did not have good clothes to take her kids to school in, and then she did not have clothes to wear to the gym that she could look presentable in when she got back to their school. She is a busy woman, and she needed help.

Fabletics on ca.justfab.com was made to make sure that all women are going to look their best when they are going to and from the gym. It spawned the whole athleisure movement that Vogue is talking about, and it helps women basically stay in their yoga pants all day. Women are changing around their yoga pants and tights using the tops, skirts and dresses that are a part of the athleisure movement.

The athleisure movement is also a place where women do not have to feel like they need to dress up too much. They do not have the time a lot of times, and that is why Fabletics makes tops and dresses that will go with their tights and yoga pants. A woman might not choose to stay in those clothes all day, but she could consider it because she has the other pieces to go with her pants or tights. Athleisure frees women up to be active without looking like they are out of style.

Fine Hair

Wen, Rinse, Repeat

Posted by SugarMusic on

WEN Hair is a catch-all hair care product that leaves out all the harmful stuff that conventional hair care products tend to have. Like sulfates, those nasty buggers are basically dish soap in your shampoo. Wen lacks these guys, which can strip your hair of its natural oils and dry it out, leaving it dull and lifeless. Wen is a product that you can use daily, in place of your regular shampoo and conditioning regime. Your hair should come out feeling softer, shinier and more easily manageable.

In an article posted on Bustle.com, the adorable Emily McClure gives Wen hair a go with her fine, thin hair. Using the recommended amount of 10 pumps and following her typical bed time shower routine, after one day she notices her hair is a bit heavy, albeit very shiny and bouncy. She decides morning showering is necessary with this product to stave off some of the oil. Her results are fairly consistent the rest of the week, she needs to shower in the morning for oil control, but her hair is shinier, and bouncier.

The Wen hair website recommends 10 pumps of this Amazon available product minimum but, it states that is the recommendation if you follow the old bottle advice of “rinse, repeat”. If you aren’t a “rinse, repeat”-er, you only need to use half the recommended amount. Secondly, WEN Hair is loaded with compounds that are meant to make your hair smooth and shiny, like fats, if you are someone who already has well lubricated hair, you should use less of it, or use it less often.

QNet Launches New CSR Program

Posted by SugarMusic on

Companies motivated to do a lot of work in philanthropic endeavors deserve to be acknowledged. QNet is one such enterprise. The India Education Diary reveals some of the initiatives QNet has been involved with. Recently, the company’s corporate social responsibility ventures have focused on providing clean drinking water to schools in rural areas. The Government Primary School, Sriram Nagar, is going to benefit from a joint venture between QNet and Lions Clubs. The venture intends to financially support a new water storage facility at the school.

QNet is hardly a small company. Calling QNet a super-company in the direct selling industry would not be overstating anything. With representatives locating and operating in about 100 countries, QNet is clearly one of the biggest of all the direct sellers on the planet. 25 offices in 25 countries further attests to this fact.

A host of reasons exist why QNet has been so successful. QNet’s variety of products and services the company offers definitely helps improve the chances of success. A wide range of products and services helps attract great numbers of motivated entrepreneurs to QNet. Of course, the wide variety of products and services help attract a lot of customers. Since direct selling is not multilevel marketing and has no requirements in place to build a massive down-line, the items sold by the company have to be interesting to customers.

QNet has also done a wonderful job with its various corporate responsibility initiatives. In India, QNet (sometimes with the previously mentioned partner Lions Clubs) has done a lot of charity work and helped many people in need. The company has reaped significant benefits from its philanthropic endeavors. The company’s brand is one associated with positive pursuits.

The initiative in Sriram Nagar could help upwards of 800 students receive access to drinking water. The program also strives to improve sanitation and hygiene which, in turn, produces healthier and safer living environments. As a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Network, QNet is always working on developing new and helping corporate responsibility programs.

Real Estate In New York On The Rise

Posted by SugarMusic on

In the suburbs of New York City real estate market in the first quarter of the year remained robust although the luxury real estate sector has cooled down. This was based off of various reports released, written in an article on Crain’s New York Business online.

The prestigious Douglas Elliman Real Estate firm recorded the median price of real estate at $1.1 million which is a 17 percent increase over the previous year as well as being the second highest median ever recorded. This was apparently artificially inflated due to development contracts closing in the first 3 months of the year. Most of these deals took place 12 months earlier and are the reason the average price was pushed up.

Jonothan Miller who works for Miller Samuel, the same company that prepared the report for Douglas Elliman believes that the real estate market is 3 separate areas that all function in different ways. He also mentioned that when the price drops the demand goes up.

Jonothan Miller said that the luxury sector of the market also accounts for the top 10 percent of all sales has slowed down in momentum. Sales increased by only 8 percent even though there were a number of new projects hitting the market in the recent year.

The firm Town Residential will be very interested in the report that was released by Douglas Elliman Real Estate as they are New York’s go to luxury real estate service provider. They have established themselves in a very short time, in less than 5 years, which shows that they are indeed leading the way when it comes to real estate in New York.

Town Residential focuses mostly on luxury residential sales, sales and leasing of property developments as well as leasing and marketing for both commercial and retail space.
