Keeping Hair Beautiful With Wen

Emily McClure is a writer for The Bustle, a YouTube blogger and she is also an individual who loves hair care products. Emily McClure had spent many years working hair salons, so she has gotten to put her hands on a lot of different hair care products on Sephora. McClure is a haircare enthusiast, so when she heard about WEN conditioning cleanser, she wanted to try it for herself. McClure decided to do a seven day experiment to see how WEN conditioning cleanser would do with her fine hair. McClure was surprised about the amount of product that she was supposed to put in her hair. Generally, McClure tries to put the least amount of product in her hair possible because it is so fine. Instead of doing what she thought was the best; McClure decided to follow the instructions on the WEN.

After following the instructions, McClure found that she was very happy with the results. McClure found that WEN left her hair feeling shiny, soft, thick, and full. McClure found that if she did not wash her hair each day, her hair would feel greasy. McClure will be adding WEN to her hair care regimen, even though it might not be the only product that she uses.

Chaz Dean is the man who had the idea to make a cleanser and conditioner all in one. WEN is a hair care product that really stands in a place of its own. It can be used as a leave in conditioner, a shampoo, and a hair styler. WEN is a product that is good for all hair types, and it is used by women all around the world.

Dean wanted to be able to create a hair care product that would not contain unneeded chemicals or colors. He created his product because he wanted to help women to have beautiful hair.  Chaz sells his products online, on the wen.com website an on his official online store at http://chazdean.com/store.aspx.

How To Throw An Incredible Dinner Party

The ability to throw a flawless and memorable dinner party is one of life’s greatest accomplishments. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a natural gift for hosting and cooking. Throwing a party of any size can be very overwhelming for many people.

 

Of course, you can always hire one of the many professional event planners NYC has to offer if you feel insecure about your party-throwing abilities. Companies like Twenty Three Layers, one of the many event planning companies in NYC, can turn your party into a huge success. Twenty Three Layers provides tons of services like upscale catering and even live entertainment. Plus, they can handle parties of any size.

 

However, if you’re looking to save money by not hiring a professional, we’ve got you covered. We asked real party planners and corporate event planners NYC has to offer for tips on how to throw the perfect dinner party without feeling overwhelmed.

 

 

  1. Make Lists

 

No matter how many guests you are having, it’s important to stay extremely organized from day one. Use spreadsheet software to make lists of tasks that you need to get done and food that you need to buy.

 

 

  1. Develop a Theme

 

You can make a dinner party way more festive by coming up with a creative and clever theme. This theme can be anything from a fun decade to a book that you and your friends love.

 

 

  1. Mail Your Invitations

 

If your dinner party is going to have an upscale edge, stick to real invitations. While online invitations are super convenient, they are too casual for something like a semi-formal dinner party.

 

 

  1. Make a Kid’s Table

 

If your guests are bringing their children, it’s wise to create a special space just for kids. Set up a smaller table that is stocked with kid-friendly dishes as well as things that will keep them occupied for hours like coloring books and toys.

 

 

  1. Simplify Your Menu

 

Remember that throwing a dinner party involves a lot more work than simply cooking a large meal. While you do want to impress your guests with your food, don’t feel bad about opting for that pre-made tomato sauce instead of spending hours making your own.

 

David Giertz: A Shining a Light on Opportunity for Financial Advisors and Their Clients

On June 11, 2014, the WSJ Wealth Advisor published an interview conducted by one of their columnists, Veronica Dagher, in which she talks with Dave Giertz, then President of Nationwide Financial Distributors at Nationwide Financials. The two discussed the lack of attention that financial advisors were paying to the subject of Social Security and their client’s retirement plans at https://twitter.com/davidgiertz .

Mr. David Giertz referred to a Nationwide Financials survey whose findings highlighted that for many people Social Security benefits comprise about 40% of total retirement income. That percentage represents a significant portion that when left out of the conversation could have critical implications for clients and advisors reported on soundcloud.com. Advisors who are hesitant to broach the subject may lose customers to the competition who are willing to discuss Social Security.

Social Security benefits as part of retirement is a complicated issue on Vimeo. Advisors prefer not talking about it to making mistakes; however, that approach can cost clients and advisors enormous amounts of money. Nationwide surveys show that turning on Social Security too early could cost retirees several hundred thousand dollars over twenty-five years.

During his years at Nationwide Financial David Giertz held several positions including Financial Advisor, Senior Vice President-Nationwide Financial Distribution and Sales at Nationwide Life Insurance Company, and President, Senior Vice President and Director for several other Nationwide companies.

Mr. Giertz maintains several registrations including one with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) as a Broker. He has over 30 years of experience in the financial industry. His education includes an MBA from the University of Miami.
