A Princess With A Tiara...No, really.

The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted wearing a tiara which is the third time in her reign as the princess of the British Royal Throne. British and American media sources alike are completely obsessed since it's such a rarity to see a royal in today's standards wear any sort of crown. Middleton arrived in a gorgeous Bentley to the Buckingham Palace for her first state dinner to honor the president of China, Xi Jinping, and his wife, Peng Liyuan.
She dawned a gorgeous red Jenny Packham gown and her shiny tiara. The Lotus Flower tiara is made up of diamonds and pearls, one of Queen Elizabeth's personal favorites that she gifted Middleton. In Britain, Middleton is known as the "people's princess" since it is widely known that she is a commoner and she is not one to flash her royal new lifestyle. The last time the media spotted Middleton with a tiara was in December of 2013 and then during her wedding in 2011.
It's actually no surprise that Middleton wore the color red to her state dinner. For the Chinese, red is a symbolic color representing good fortune. And since she was meeting with the head of one of the most powerful nations in the eastern world, of course it was fitting for the princess of England and future Queen to show that she still reigned supreme among the monarchy.

Versatile Or Affordable, Which Type Of Wig Do You Prefer?
Speaking of wigs, do you know how many types there are? According to whether there is lace or not, the most popular ones are an HD wig, Brazilian lace front wigs, lace part wigs, lace closure wigs, Headband wigs, Bob wigs, U part wigs, etc. What is a lace part wig? A lace part wig, also known as a T-lace wig, is a wig with a t-part lace portion covering the ear-to-ear area between the edge and the parting space. You can find different parts of the wig with different widths and depths of inches of lace. Common cheap lace wigs include 4x0.75 inch, 13x5x0.75 inch, 13x5x0.5 inch, etc. What is a lace front wig? Much like the lace part wig, the lace front wig also consists of a non-adhesive wig cap and a lace part. The difference between the two wigs was that the front lace wig had a larger area of lace that covered the entire top of the head. Front lace wigs can be divided into 13x4 front lace wigs and 13x6 front lace wigs according to the size of the lace part. What are the similarities between a lace part wig and a lace front wig? Both serve as lace wigs, and the two types of wigs are very similar in construction. We'll list the specific similarities below. 1. Construction This is the most obvious similarity between the two wigs. They are both a combination of non-glue caps and lace parts. 2. Install They are usually attached with the help of glue or tape applied to the front hairline area. Once the glue has dried, secure the front lace section of the wig to the glue-coated area of the hairline to form a tight bond and secure the lace wig to your head. 3. Go natural They all create a natural hair look for the wearer. Lace partly mimics human natural skin. If you choose a good lace wig with enough lace to make it invisible, you'll get the most natural look. Sometimes, you need to apply some powder to match your skin tone. What's the difference between a lace part wig and a lace front wig? To know which is right for you, we must first understand the differences. You can refer to the following to choose one of them. 1. The lace region The lace part of a wig covers only the hairline and middle; Whereas the lace front wig has a larger lace area covering the top of your head. 2. Comfortable The rest of the lace wig is made of a less breakable material, which is less prone to tearing than the lace. However, it is also less comfortable and breathable than a lace wig with a larger lace area. 3. Versatility A lace front wig allows the wearer to choose a hairline. Lace is located in the front part of the wig, allowing the wearer to part the hair at will. But with the lace part of the wig, you always have to keep the middle part of the hair. 4. Price Wigs with more lace required more complex production processes. So the price of a former lace wig is much higher than the price of a partial lace wig. A lace part wig or a lace front wig, which is better for beginners? With a basic understanding of the similarities and differences between a partial lace wig and a pre-lace wig, here are some common problems with both types of wigs. 1. What kind of wig looks more natural? Lace front wig. Thanks to the larger lace area, the hair looks like it grew out of your actual scalp. 2. Can the lace part be beside part of the wig? Not at all. You have to keep it in the middle of it will look unnatural. If you want side parting, a lace wig is better for you. 3. Can you part the front lace wig anywhere? Yes. You are free to separate the wig within the lace area. Which of the above wigs do you prefer?
Confession: I'm Addicted To Trying Strange Asian Foods.
Hi, my name is Dani, and I'm a foodie - but only when it comes to all things weird. As those of you who participate in my weekly So Good Or No Good food game, I'm always interested in talking about gross food combinations and dishes that, well, require a certain kind of palette. I thought it might be fun to create a list of strange international foods I've tried that maybe other people wouldn't be into - some left me wanting seconds, and well, others definitely had me running to the bathroom. Have you tried any of these? Century Eggs (China) Century eggs - also known as pidan - get their name because they are soaked and preserved for long periods of times (traditionally, several months) before they're eaten. What normally looks like a regular white and yellow boiled egg turns into translucent black with a consistency kind of like Jell-O. I thought these were surprisingly delicious. Once you get over the fact that the eggs are black and have a different smell than a normal hard-boiled egg, you'll find that it's still really tasty! Pork Dinuguan (Philippines) Dinuguan looks like a pretty unassuming stew with a color is reminiscent of a Mexican mole sauce, but the taste couldn't be any more different. It's made with anything from standard pork to more questionable parts like the lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, heart, or snout, and it's all simmered in pig blood. As far as this one's concerned, I was able to make it through a few bites, but the texture and the heavy iron-flavor of the jellied pig blood sauce really grossed me out. (However, my Filipino friends insist this can be SUPER delicious, so I'm waiting for their moms to make me some!) Yukhoe (South Korea) There's really not much to explain when it comes to yukhoe. It's ground raw beef served with raw egg and a variety of seasonings. Sometimes it's served as you see in the picture above, and other times, it's over rice with an assortment of vegetables as 'yukhoe bibimbap'. Yukhoe is actually really delicious! First, I was scared because there's so much 'NOPE!' here, but yukhoe is served cold, so the beef flavor is mild. Also, the seasoning does a good job of keeping you from feeling like you're shoveling raw hamburger meat in your mouth. (Make sure you're ordering yukhoe at a reputable place so you don't get sick!) Natto (Japan) Natto is a fermented soybean dish that is traditionally served at breakfast. With a stringy consistency and a strong odor, it's known to be an acquired taste - even within Japan! Natto is often served plain, but you can also see it rolled up onigiri-style. I couldn't get past the first bite or two plain, but I will say that eating it with soy sauce and mustard (which is often provided when you order natto), definitely helps you get it down. Yeah, this was a once-and-never-again dish for me. Zhū ěr duo (China) Zhū ěr duo is a popular Chinese appetizer of sliced braised pig ear, commonly served both hot or cold. The outer skin is chewy and soft, while the strip of cartilage has a crunch that might be unfamiliar to people trying it for the first time. Personally, I felt like the texture took me a bite or two to get used to, but once I had, I actually found pig ear to be pretty good! I don't know if I could eat a whole lot of this, but it's really nice as an appetizer. Dalkbal (South Korea) Dalkbal is a dish popularly served as something of a pub snack in South Korea. It's chicken feet prepared in a spicy sauce of red pepper paste and sesame oil. Overall, it's light and meaty, but definitely has plenty of crunchy cartilage inside. Dalkbal is super spicy! I don't think I realized I was such a heat wimp until I tried it for the first time. The cartilage gets in the way of it being anything close to filling, but it's a great snack, especially for you beer and hot wings types. So now I want to know about the unusual foods YOU'VE tried. Share your own stories! Is there a food in your family's culture that a lot of people outside of it wouldn't be into? Are there strange foods you were scared to try, but actually liked eating a lot?

HOME MADE AROMATHERAPY CANDLES
Who doesn’t love candles? These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles make the ultimate relaxation gift and the perfect use for all of those old mason jars. You just need wax, wicks and essential oils. That’s right! essential oils are what help you make homemade scented candles meaning you can customize them yourselves! DIY Aromatherapy Candles. These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles are so easy to make. The hardest part is finding the supplies! I love this how-to from Tate tots and Jello. She even shows you how to make your own wicks! Make sure you have enough oil for the amount of candles you’re making. If you’re doing a larger batch, try using an essential oil diffuser like this one. The Aromatherapy Candles have a calming scent that will help you relax and get ready for bed. Just about the first thing that every person comments on when they walk into our apartment is our excessive collection of candles. C and I collect candles and spend an exorbitant amount on candles each month. Watching us in West Elm is like watching a kid in a candy store. We’re always trying to figure out how we can buy another candle. And every time we do, I make a mental note to myself that it’s time to find another place for all of these candles. We are never going to burn them all! But then we come home and light one, and before you know it the whole collection is burning. This particular candle is one of my favorites because it smells like the beach (I love the beach).  Today I’m sharing my best tips for making homemade aromatherapy candles (or essential oil candles because that’s pretty much what they are!) as well as ways you can avoid making the same mistakes I have the habit of making every single time. Essential Oil Candle Making: Step-by-Step Making candles with essential oils is surprisingly easy. After you’ve gathered your materials, the process will take you less than 10 minutes. STEP 1: Let’s Talk Soy Wax In terms of ingredients, these scented candles are fairly easy to make. All you need are soy wax flakes and essential oils (plus your tools). Why soy wax? Well, it's naturally made and very environmentally friendly. It's also odorless, non-toxic, biodegradable and clean burning. And did I mention that soy wax candles burn for up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles? So the candles are not only good for your health but also for the environment!  Soy wax will melt fairly quickly and is easy to manage, however you will want to use some kind of disposable device for stirring as it sticks to everything and is difficult to remove once it’s set. I use a wooden chopstick that I can toss once I’m done the candle making process. Step #2: Placing the Wick Begin by taking your wick and placing it in the center of your candle mold. To make sure that you’re centered, use a marker to mark the spot where you want to place the wick. Next, gently press the wick into the center of your candle mold until it touches both sides. This will ensure that you have an even burn across all parts of your candle. STEP 3: Add your Essential Oils Aromatherapy candles are effectively essential oil candles. If you’re curious to learn more about aromatherapy check out this post on Essential Oils 101. You’ll need to add about 80-120 drops of essential oil. I recommend using a concentrated oil blend. I used do TERRA’s Deep Blue for my candle. It’s an amazing blend of essential oils that really does make you feel relaxed and calm. You can also add in some dried herbs or flowers if you like. Just be sure to use non-toxic herbs, dried flowers or even citrus peels! Again, refer to this post for more information about the benefits of different essential oils. Feel free to mix-and-match too! Just add the oils directly to the melted soy wax. Step #4: Prepare Your Wax Melts Next, take your melting pot and add a few drops of your scented oil to it. Heat up your oil until it is melted and then add in your wax melts. The wax melts should be evenly distributed across the melting pot, but not piled on top of each other. When the wax melts are fully melted, you can then begin to pour them into your candle mold. The pouring process will be easier if you use a metal funnel that has been pre-soaked in hot water for at least 10 minutes. Make sure that you avoid using plastic funnels as they can easily melt under the heat of the wax. Step #5: Placing Your Wax Beans Take your wax beans and begin to gently place them around the wick. Try to avoid overfilling your mold as this will make it difficult for you to remove your candle later on. Be sure that you place the wax beans into the center of each well so that they can be covered by the hot wax and burn evenly. Step #6: Enjoy Your Candle! After your candle has been poured, let it cool for a few hours before using it. Once you’re ready to use it, simply place the candle in an area where there is good air circulation and light the wick. The wick should be trimmed to approximately 1/4 inch before you light it up. If you have any questions about trimming the wick or anything else, check out our candle making tips page. Candle making is an easy process, and it’s a great way to save money on candles.

How Do I Reset My Brother Printer?
Sometimes when you replace a Brother toner cartridge or a compatible Brother toner cartridge, your printer will still display a warning message on the printer, such as "toner low" or "replace toner". In this article, you will learn how to reset the Brother printer's toner counter to continue printing. What is the toner counter on a Brother printer? Toner counters are general estimates from a printer, telling you when a toner needs to be replaced. Some LaserJet printers cannot read the toner themselves and rely on the page counter to be reset, which happens when new toner is put into the machine. Sometimes the printer does not reset the toner and therefore may display an inaccurate toner level for what is in the cartridge. Brother toners do not have the ability to read toner and therefore if the toner has not been reset by the user, they cannot provide an accurate toner level. If the Brother printer does not recognize the cartridge as new, the printer will display an error. This may be due to chip recognition or incorrect toner installation. In certain cases of use of a Brother toner, an error may occur before the actual toner cartridge runs out. The Brother printer will display a "replace toner" or similar message. But the toner will still look like new on inspection. This can happen if the toner did not reset the counter on new cartridge installation or if the small number of documents printed exceeds the printer's built-in page counter estimates. To resolve this error, a simple reset procedure on your printer will override the message and allow you to continue printing. The best way to see if there are any errors or if you think the toner needs to be replaced. It is to print a black and white test page or a color test page. This will show if your toner is low or has quality deterioration. The printed color test page will tell you which toner(s) you need to replace. The best way to do this is when you install your new Brother toner(s), print a black and white test page or a color test page. This will show the new quality of the toners that are filled. Print another test page to see if you need to think about replacing your toner. Please note that all Brother toner print yields are based on an average coverage of 5%.
