How Often Do You Snack?

How Often Do You Snack? You just had that sinfully rich ice cream from Martine Lambert in Rue Cler for dessert and now you’re craving for those delicate artisanal pastries from Carl Marletti in Rue Censier in Paris. Paris is indeed a haven for all lovers of fine food and of course, all the fine things in life. And having a snack to go with your mid afternoon coffee is a practice beloved by Parisians and many cultures all around the world. Most of us try to get in three meals a day (some skip breakfast), so we compensate by snacking during the day. So here’s a little secret, you can actually snack more than once during the day and not ruin your diet. When you want to have a little snack and you want treat yourself, you can also visit Popelini in Rue Debelleyme for the best profiteroles.
Following a healthy lifestyle by watching what you eat is a bit of a challenge. Like playing poker, you need focus and discipline. You can now play poker without having to dress up and go to a real casino. But if you’re looking for the thrill of a live poker game, you can join the tables at Casino Croisette in Cannes. You can be a poker expert in no time when you follow these tips, and you can also be a master of your own diet when you know when the best time for snacking is. Always keep in mind that you can snack anytime you want as long as your last meal is at least four hours ago. If you exceed more than that, you risk of eating more than you should during your next meal. If you must snack on something substantial yet big on flavor you can try the famous artisanal baguettes and loaves from Pain d’Epis just around the Eiffel Tower and have some delicious savory treats like their fougasse and baguette royale.
Most importantly, you should snack after one hour of intense workout. Whether if it’s cardio, judo or pilates, your snack should be protein rich or you can also load up on carbohydrates. If you want to go the healthier route, you can have a protein shake, a tuna on whole wheat sandwich or hummus and pita that can be just as satisfying. You should also refrain from snacking between breakfast and lunch. People who snack between those meals also tend to snack during the midday so the calories add up and so does your weight. If you want to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, you can check out the organic goods and produce at L’Epicerie Generale in Rue de Verneuil, Paris.

What A Business Card Says

Perhaps you have just opened your first website? Maybe you own your own business? You could even just want to find a good study partner in school? All of those reasons and more are great ways to use a business card to help aid in those pursuits. A business card can speak for you in many situations. In the digital age in which we live you may think that a business card is unnecessary, but it is quite the opposite. While it is true that some people will ignore your card and possibly even throw it away, you will find that the people who have any remote interest in you and what you are doing would love to have a business card from you. It is a formal way to make sure that a certain person or place has your contact information. It’s just as easy to misplace an email with your contact information as it is to lose a small card containing your details. In fact I think that business cards, if you choose a good and proper design for yours, can prove to be much more useful than an email or phone call.

The main things to remember when choosing a design for your business cards are that it needs to represent you or the business you are trying to promote clearly. When people see the card they need to be able to clearly know what you or your business is about. If you have a design firm you don’t want to choose a design for your card that has dogs and cats on it. Hopefully if you own a design firm you would already know that though. Another important thing is to not overdo the design. Add only the vital information and a simple design to the card for the most effective outcome. Lastly, keep in mind that the whole point in the card is to promote something or be a useful form of contact information for someone to get in touch with you. Don’t give them to just anyone, give them to the people that count, make the cards a special thing and not an overstocked commodity. A business card has been the most effective accessory to a business for years, and that is not going to change anytime soon.

Greeting Cards with a Different Spin

Tis’ the  season to begin looking at greeting cards, and as always, we see the same round and frosty snowman or jolly Saint Nick with his reindeer and sleigh. Once in awhile we’ll see the serene nativity scene wishing us a merry holiday, but what if we want something a little less traditional and a little more creative?

Wrenay Gomez Charlton obviously saw the need for something new and provides a breath of fresh air to the greeting card world with her unique prints, cards, and calendars. Each one contains the silhouette of an animal, and within the animal is a road map from the state the animal is indigenous to. Maps have been used as décor for quite some time, but never before have they been displayed in such a way.  Each card is beautifully imaginative and would be a wonderful way to say Happy Holidays, Happy Birthday, or even to just let someone know you’re thinking of them. Just checkout the Wrenmade online shop for more information and inspiration!
