Marriage is a wonderful institution, isn’t it? You find someone, you fall in love so far in love that you want to spend every single day together and you commit your lives to each other. It’s wonderful. Everything about weddings and love is swoon-worthy. Everyone wants it and those who have it often don’t know how lucky they are. Continue Reading
Most of us will have occasionally passed the time by playing video games. Whether it’s playing a puzzle game like Candy Crush Saga on the morning commute, or enjoying some casino games as evening entertainment, it’s clear that we’re becoming a world of gamers.
We’ve all been there, an excruciating week of work, barely any sleep, becoming more and more like Steve Buscemi with each look in the mirror. This problem revolves around us forgetting about or just not caring enough for the very thing layer of skin around our eyes. Thankfully, most of the issues are temporary in nature and can be dealt with. To prevent these problems from ever arising, there is a certain routine that must be upheld. And don’t worry, as long as you know what you’re doing, it’s as easy as can be!
With every year that progresses, it seems as though most of us get a little more addicted to our smartphones. And whilst new mobile models like the Samsung Galaxy S8 has incredible features like facial recognition and the cool Live Message function, there are some who maintain that we are becoming a little too reliant upon the internet.
More often than not it’s social media that gets the blame. Although social media apps like Facebook and Instagram are supposed to help us live closer interconnected lives, these networks have been blamed for everything from the rise of fake news to mental health issues in young people.
Perhaps it is because these apps allow us to present a skewed version of reality that they have been given such a startling portrayal in the press.
But as an entire generation of smartphone users have now reached adulthood without knowing life before the internet, it seems as though this technology is an integral part of the human condition.
The internet provides us with a convenience that we’ve never known before. From being able to check flight times to house prices at the click of a button, we are now living in a time where having to wait for information is becoming old-fashioned.
And it’s affecting our physical world too. More people are able to use the internet to work from home, and the online retail revolution is meaning that our high streets are no longer the focal point for our shopping activities.
The entertainment realm has been similarly affected. From brands like Netflix and Spotify allowing us previously unimaginably simple ways to watch movies and listen to music, to gaming sites that have transformed traditional casino gaming habits as discussed at the blog at Lucky Nugget Casino, it shows that we now face more choice than ever.
But it’s this ease of accessing information that could be having unknown consequences on our behaviours. There have already been news stories that suggest how the internet is affecting the way that we form memories, and with concerns about shorter attention spans, it seems as though the internet is changing us as humans.
However, before we get too concerned the rise of the internet, it’s worthwhile remembering that most new technologies tend to produce a moral panic. From the perceived dangers of watching too much, television to the revolutionary effects that Gutenbergs printing press introduced, we’ve had a long history of adapting to change.
And with the internet giving us an easier way to stay connected and play mobile casino games, it seems as though we soon won’t remember a time before this incredible technology.
Music, fashion and beauty icon Rihanna has announced the launch of her highly anticipated beauty brand Fenty Beauty exclusively at Harvey Nichols. It was essential for Rihanna “that women everywhere would be included” with formulas in the collection aimed to work for all skin types.
Sometimes in life we can give our absolute all only for it to be not good enough. We are discarded and forgotten like a momentary whisper in the wind. In the sheer blink of an eye, years of unprecedented dedication, vast sacrifice and unbridled passion can be eviscerated by our own actions and words in less than sixty seconds. These actions may come to define us for eternity and leave a gigantic ocean of severe emotional and psychological regret hanging deep over our heads, coupled with burning anxiety, frustration, disappointment and hurt.
Whether it is unconstructive habits, relationships, friendships or destructive commitments, there comes a time in life where in order for us to grow and step into our new self, we must let go. Letting go isn’t always easy as our branches get accustomed to holding onto seasonal plants and fruits, however, as the seasons change, the holding onto of out of season harvest can prevent and delay our new season and potential for new growth. Many times in life we come to points where we feel heavy, weighed down and overwhelmed by the plethora of commitments that we periodically carry. In these moments it is essential that we check ourselves and do somewhat of a life audit, filing the accounts of our wellbeing. The essentiality of this task is an understatement when we consider how quickly we habitually conform to unhealthy patterns of life.
