  5. I like the cover and the title is cute. The sentence sounds serious (to me anyway) and kind of a contrast to the cover. Not knowing the context of things is interesting XD

  6. Hmm ... that is interesting. Is it supposed to be humorous?

  8. Hi, I translated the sentence (- Ingen vet riktigt vad som händer med de Silikoner som kommer ut i naturen.-) on our computer and then it became like this:
    - Nobody really knows what happens to the Silicones, which comes out in nature .-

    It´s a very good book. The book is new for this year. I am on page 56 at the moment.

    If you want you can have a look into a very good shop we have in Sweden. Good products.

    Have a good day :-)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
