4 Things You Need to Do First Before Buying Wedding Rings Online

wedding rings

We have entered an age where buying things online is no longer considered a new-age trend. Instead, it’s almost a mundane task performed by the masses. Right from groceries to a flat-screen television, there is no limit to what we can buy online. Jewelry is certainly no different. There are dozens of online stores selling everything from diamond encrusted rings to stainless steel bracelets. This often makes people wonder, is there a need to go to stores to buy wedding rings? In today’s fast-paced life, swiping and tapping your way to find the best wedding rings online certainly seems more convenient than going to physical stores. For most parts, buying jewelry online is definitely an evolutionary step forward. However, there are certain things you need to keep in mind before buying jewelry online. Following these will help you get a good deal and ensure you get an authentic piece. Without further ado, following are 4 things you need to do before buying wedding rings online

Browse Aimlessly: It may sound like a weird advice but browsing a jewelry store online without any preconceived idea is a good thing. This allows you to explore all the options and get a more in-depth look of the entire collection. It also helps you find an alternative to typical diamond and platinum pieces. Simply by choosing to explore you may end up buying a beautiful wedding ring set at half the cost of your original budget. When browsing, make sure to mark all the items you like by favoriting them so that you can find them later. 

Read Customer Reviews: Most online jewelry stores proudly display positive customer testimonials on the homepage. As a smart consumer, you know already that those reviews are either fake or selectively picked from a list of random customer reviews. To get the best picture about the reputation of the store, it’s always recommended to checkout an independent listing site like Yelp. If a site sells fake jewelry you will definitely find angry customer reviews online.

It wasn’t that long ago that gaming was designed for a very select audience. In today’s world, however, it is a concept that’s pretty much ubiquitous. So, even if the attraction has previously passed you by, now is the perfect time to join the revolution. Here are just ten reasons why.

 #1. It’s Not All GTA and Warcraft 

If you’re unfamiliar with gaming, you’ve probably heard about a very select list of games. However, there are games for virtually everyone. Whether you love sports, sci-fi, driving, shooting, or anything else, you will find a game to suit your needs. This is your chance to escape to a virtual world and do anything you want to do, even if it’s something like simulating a flight. 

#2. Gaming Is A Great Way To Relax 

Given the hectic lifestyles we all lead, the opportunity to relax for a few hours is always a bonus. Gaming is the perfect chance to do this, especially as you don’t even need to leave your home.

#3. Gaming Is Known To Promote A Healthy Mind 

Many of the people that are yet to be won over by the gaming world feel that video games are harmful. After all, a lot of headlines have been written about this. In reality, though, gaming is shown to aid cognitive development. The benefits include increased coordination and awareness as well as improved memory and brain speed. When added to the relaxed vibes, this is amazing. 

#4. Gaming Doesn’t Have To Cost A Fortune 

It’s possible to spend thousands on a gaming PC or console and hundreds more on the games and accessories. Then again, you could just as easily stick to cheap titles and used games bought off of eBay. Alternatively, if you have an internet connection, you could decide to play free Flash games on various gaming websites. This way, you can try as many titles until you find one you love. 

#5. You Could Win Money Too 

The only thing better than having a great hobby is having a great hobby that increases your bank balance. There are many ways to make money from gaming. In fact, the professionals can earn millions from it. For most people, casino games are the perfect solution, and the best new mobile features are top of the agenda.

Ways to Show Love to your Children


Showing your children that you love them is very important. A child that experience parents or guardian love tend to perform well in school and his/her self-esteem is improved. They become courageous and hence they enjoy their social life too. You might love your kid so much, but without you expressing your love towards him, they will not realize it. Here is how you can show your little ones that you love them. 

1. Show them, unconditional love

Let your kids know that your love toward them is unconditional. So whether they perform poorly in their studies or misbehave in one way or the other, always assure them of your love and encourage them that they can do better.

2. Tough love

Again, tough love is required even if they won’t understand it at the moment. Set some rules for them and let them become responsible from the word go. Discipline them when they misbehave to make them good and responsible people in future. Believe it or not, there will come a time when they'll learn to appreciate your tough love.

 3. Use the language of love

Show your kids that you love them by talking to them in a lovely way. Call them by sweet nicknames such as darling and sweetheart, whenever you’re addressing to them. See Cute Names To Call A Girl. Again, it’s good sometimes you learn to be a ‘yes’ mama or daddy. That is; agreeing on anything they say provided it won’t harm them in any way. They will love it!

Learning Kentico: How to Fix SQL Query problems for Custom Tables (Form Control Dropdown List)

Yey! I'm finally done with Custom Module exercises. I was really stucked with this for weeks/month because everything was new to me. I have to read a lot of info from the documentation and it was really hard to understand. Eventhough I passed all the tests but I don't like to proceed to the next topic if I can't do the exercises. I'm just so happy, I finally did it. 

But before I was able to completely finished it, I encountered two more issues when trying to display the data from the custom table. This is related to SQL query problems in Form Control Dropdown List. See screenshot below:

Learning Kentico: Custom Module not showing in Custom Applications (CMS Desk)

So I was trying to create the Doctors Appointment custom module exercise now after I have practiced creating a custom module (CompanyAlRitch) based on the video from the Kentico course. 

I have followed all the steps and I was wondering why the Doctor class or the new module I have created is not showing in the Custom Applications in (CMS Desk).
Screenshot below.

What did I miss? As you see in the screenshot, the Office and Employees are showing. How about the Doctor? So I checked again: 
  • checked if I set it as a Global Application - DONE
  • they said to rebuild since I put the custom classes inside the Kentico project (App code) - DONE
  • checked the video from the Kentico course over and over again if I missed any step - DONE
  • lastly, I resorted to deleting the module again and creating a new one - DONE
But it is still not showing. Toinks! :(

This is just a quick post about something I learned today. Not Kentico related but I'm glad to be able to know this while I am learning Kentico. Yep, when you encountered issues and all that stuff!

So I was trying to launch my local copy using Chrome but for some reason, it says that the "Debugger operation is taking a long time to complete. Click "Cancel" to stop waiting and terminate process". 

Then this window pop-ups that I cannot connect to run time process, timeout after 10000 ms. Reason: Cannot connect to target: connect ECONNREFUSED issue (see screenshot below)

Can't Get Enough of Steven Paysu's cover songs


Gosshhhh! I don't know what's happening with me but I just can't get enough of Steven Paysu's songs. I've been listening to his cover songs over and over again. This even prompted me to create my first ever playlist on YouTube where you can find all Steven Paysu's Tawag ng Tanghalan videos (those videos that were uploaded by ABS-CBN Entertainment). Yes! clear videos and legit source only. :) 

I just hope that they will upload his past videos also because I missed those times when he was still a semi-finalist or way, way back. I tried to search it on I want TV but it seems like you can only access a whole month's episode of a particular show (like Show Time) even if you are in a Premium account. If I am wrong, please correct me or point me as to where I can watch his previous performances. I'm really dying to listen to his other songs...I really love his songs and I love the fact that he is always singing love songs. And take note! Classic love songs! Gossshhhh...nakakainlove talaga ang mga songs niya! I just can't get enough! I can't wait for his ALBUM! I can't wait to listen to the whole song version of all the songs he sangs in Show Time. Gossshhhhh! Steven, when are you coming back to the Philippines? Hehehe.

Anyways, ito iyong mga Top 3 Favorites (videos) ko so far - sa mga kinanta niya. :) :) :)


1. Steven Paysu's Got To Believe in Magic version - Kyla can best describe how everyone was feeling when he sang this. And it was really good. I was also teary eyed that time when I was watching him (at nakaheadset pako ako noon). So grabe talaga ang impact! Mararamdaman mo talaga ang song! And I love the fact that this was also the theme song of my favorite Filipino movie of all time: Got to Believe in Magic (Claudine and Rico). Flashbacks!
