What Your Colors are Telling Your Customers? (Content Princess – SEO)

Simultaneously intuitive and complicated, colour choice shows your customers a lot about you. The colours you choose and how you combine them are sending your customers messages, of which you may not be aware.

Color choice

The design of any space sets the tone for the interactions that take place there. This includes everything, even the colour you choose. A few spots of vibrancy are bold and uplifting, while softer colours and shades of white give a sense of space and tranquillity, according to ezibuy.com.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says that “Paint colour is an expression of your personality,” and this holds true for everything you find yourself designing. According to realsimple.com, colours such as yellow and orange (and all of their many variations) present you as being cheerful and welcoming. Blues, lavenders, and green are associated with nature and give your clients a sense of tranquillity and calmness.  

Colours associated with precious gems (think sapphire, topaz, and ruby) say that you are creative, outgoing, and creative. If this is your choice of colour scheme, you send the message that you are skilled at creating intimacy in an imposing space. If neutrals such as beige, ivory, and grey appeal to you, you are presenting yourself as practical and steady.

Color combinations

Use combinations of colours to your advantage. While there are many ways to combine colours when designing something, knowing a few of the fundamental aspects allow you to focus on a particular aspect without overwhelming your guests.

The simplest colour scheme is that of complementary colours. Some examples are combinations of blue and orange, yellow and purple, or red and green. According to freshome.com, using a neutral background with these combinations allows you to draw the eye to a particular aspect of what you’re designing. If you’re looking to accentuate a particular view or piece of art, centre it in these colours! It won’t be missed.

In contrast, you could choose an analogous colour scheme. This allows you to have similar colours throughout the room. Think of a combination of red, orange, and yellow to create a warm, glowing environment. This is a slightly less jarring take on the complementary colour scheme and gives your space a more relaxing feel.

You can also have a monochromatic colour scheme. This would be a combination of black, white, and grey to give your space a sense of calm. What you are looking to achieve in your space determines the colour scheme you choose.

Designing your space

We have barely touched the surface in designing basics. As you can see, even the colour you want is meaningful and conveys a message to your clients. It also serves as the basis of your corporate identity.

What your brand’s colours say about you (Content Princess – SEO)

First impressions do count!

The ‘primacy and recency’ effect is well-recognized in psychology, this is why first impressions are so important. The very first pieces of information that a person stumbles across when searching for something new are the ones most likely to stay in the memory, and for your brand, this means your logo design is crucial. It’s the thing that people will immediately mentally identify with your business, so make sure you find something that speaks to the people you’re trying to reach out!

According to market research and psychological surveys, 51% of brands use one colour only. Advertisements in colour are read 42% more often than those in black and white, brand recognition increases 80% with colour, and up to 90% of judgments can be based on colour alone.

The associations behind certain colours

Many widely recognizable brands use a consistent colour scheme based on one particular colour as a core part of their brand identity. The colour is carefully chosen to convey a particular message, culture or set of values. Intuitively, you will recognise the connection between colour and image for many of these brands, even if it’s not something you may have thought about consciously. Here are some examples:

The colour red is widely known to be a ‘power colour’ but is also associated with and passion and represents success, which is why companies like Coca-Cola and Virgin use it. Blue represents integrity, trust, and communication, and is used by Samsung and Facebook. Black represents luxury and is often used in more upmarket brands, while yellow represents fun and creativity.

Colour shades and combinations

Colours come in all different shades and can be combined in countless different ways to produce compelling subliminal messages and possibilities. Colour palettes number in the tens of thousands, and knowing which shades to use, and the best colour combination to use in your brand logo can seem like a daunting task!

Certain combinations of colours can bring up powerful feelings or memories in potential customers, according to psychological research and colour theory. Pastel pinks, oranges, mauves, and purples can conjure up imagery of a tropical sunset and feelings of warmth, while a colour palette including mint green, cadet blue, and blue-black is calming and reminiscent of nature and cold mornings.

Choosing the right colour combination for your brand requires a degree of expertise and experience. Every colour represents a set of ideas, and some colours are unsuited to individual businesses while extremely well-suited to others.

Thankfully, this is not a decision that needs to be made on your own. Tailor Brands specialises in quickly finding just the right colour combinations that your brand needs to stand out against the competition really, and our bespoke services have helped hundreds of thousands of users worldwide.

Healthy Tips and Recipes (Content Princess – SEO)

Our world is full of unhealthy drinks, snacks, and fast food. As a culinary student in Southern California, I learned some tricks to turn unhealthy favorites into yummy and healthy alternatives. While there is a misconception that everything healthy is vegetarian, it isn’t true. Even vegetarian diets can have harmful components. I will share some of my secrets even your kids will love!

Replacing Rice

Rice is a big staple in a lot of different cultures’ diets, but when trying to cut down on carbs and calories there is a healthy alternative. This little secret will get even your kids to eat their vegetables without even knowing it. Use cauliflower rice to replace the rice. Cauliflower rice has a similar texture to rice and even looks like it. No one will know the difference. In my household, rice and beans are something we eat quite often for lunch. I switched to cauliflower rice, and my kids didn’t even notice. Try out this recipe next time you have left over chicken.

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl using Cauliflower Rice

  • Chicken breast (2 cups shredded)
  • Spinach (4 cups)
  • Sugar snap peas (1 cup)
  • Orange bell pepper (you can use red or yellow bell pepper)
  • Yellow and red cherry tomatoes (1 cup)
  • Teriyaki sauce
  • EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • Cauliflower rice (2 cups)

Take your bell pepper, thinly slice it and set aside until ready to sauté. Cut all your tomatoes in halves or quarters depending on your preference. Once everything is chopped, lightly drizzle the EVOO into a pan on a medium high heat. Add all the vegetables and the pre-shredded chicken into the pan to sauté. Once all the contents are nice and hot, add about 6 table spoons of teriyaki sauce.

While sautéing your chicken and vegetables, start heating the cauliflower rice in a separate pan.

Tip: You should always keep a food thermometer in the kitchen. A safe temperature for food to be served is between 145-170 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once it is all at a safe food temperature, place cauliflower rice in a bowl and top with your teriyaki chicken and vegetable mixture. It is now ready to eat.

There are many different recipes with cauliflower rice. And talk about a cut in the calories! Cauliflower rice has only 25 calories per cup versus 199 calories per cup of white rice or 216 calories per cup of brown rice.

Say No to Sodas

While sodas have a huge market for drinks, they are extremely unhealthy and full of calories. There are 138 calories per can of Coca Cola, one of the leading brands of soft drinks. You don’t have to cut carbonated drinks out of your diet but try switching from sodas to flavored carbonated water which has zero calories. If you have kids that don’t like to drink water, this is a great trick because it has all the ‘fizzle’ kids love but none of the calories and harmful ingredients sodas have.

Carbonated water also satisfies thirst while soda makes you thirstier. Carbonated waters will you give the sugar crash that you get from sodas. In my opinion, there are also more flavors of carbonated water to choose from, as compared to sodas.

Healthy Tips and Tricks

Here are some healthy tips and tricks to keep a healthy diet and lifestyle:

  • To follow healthy eating eat three meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) with small snacks in between meals. Instead of reaching for a candy bar or cookies as a snack try having fresh fruit or nuts. Even a small portion of yoghurt and granola would be a great healthy snack.
  • Fish holds a significant bit of Omega 3’s (ALA, EPA and DHA). EPA and DHA can help with stiffness in joints. DHA is essential for neurological and visual development in infants. After much research cultures with diets that contain higher levels of Omega 3’s have a decreased rate of depression and bipolar disorders. It doesn’t hurt to increase your intake of fish.
  • Your brain can sometimes trick you to think you are hungry when you are indeed thirsty, and vice versa. Try drinking water when you start getting hungry between snacks and meals. But at the same time, you don’t want to drink way too much water. Try to drink in moderation. Eating in moderation is also a good thing to practice.
  • Always try to make time for breakfast! Breakfast is the meal that is the most important. It gives you that energy boost to get your day going right. You will notice your ability to focus better as well as an increase in your metabolism. Remember that eating in moderations is important! Eating breakfast in the morning will cause a chain reaction to not overeat during later meals and snacks.

While the list of healthy tips and tricks can go on and on, you don’t have to get overwhelmed. You have to find what best fits you and your family. Staying healthy can be easy if you put your mind to it and be creative. Positive thinking will also promote a healthier lifestyle. It is up to you to get out and exercise, eat healthily and live healthily.

Why The New iPad Is A Big Deal? (Content Princess – SEO)

This Is The iPad We’ve Been Waiting For

The New iPad – A Bigger, Better Experience

If you’re like most people, your iPad is a Netflix machine that doubles as a social media wonderland and throws in a jukebox and an arcade.  The new iPad is more so.

Tell me about the price! I will just let me say a few other things first.

First things first – it’s called the iPad. No numbers or fancy names like Air – like you’re buying basketball shoes.  Just iPad.  That’s what it is.  It’s THE iPad.

The Air 2 was a skinny little thing at 6.1 mm thick and felt almost fragile when holding it.  This iPad is an easier to hold 7.5 mm with rounded corners and a smooth (but not slick) back. Total size specs are 240×169.5×7.5mm, so it fits great in your hands and gives you a 9.7” screen. It weighs in at one pound, with an aluminium uni-body construction for durability.

You still have the Touch ID fingerprint sensor – and that’s getting bigger and bigger with payment options, such as Apple Pay in apps and websites.

Did We Say Screen?

The iPad has a shinier screen than the Air2 without the Air 2’s anti-reflective coating. It’s a whopping 25% brighter and superior for off-axis viewing.  Can you say bolder, brighter picture with a vivid high-res Retina display?  I thought you could. Enjoy that next Netflix binge even more.

Tell me about the price!  I’ll get to it.

With a performance upgraded A9 chip (the Air 2 had an A8), the new iPad supports split screening with two apps at once – and other advanced features. It’s a bigger, better iPad experience.

Social Media Magician

The new iPad has an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.2 mp FaceTime HD camera, so you’re still in good hands, and you can shoot 1080p HD video.

So what do you do with all that imagery tech?  You can edit all your imagery right on your iPad using Photos, iMovie, or even your favourite app.  Lights, camera, action – ready for your Facebook and YouTube stardom.

Games and Music Aficionado

So with everything going on with the new iPad’s display, A9 chip, and iOS 10, your gaming experience will be that much upgraded too.  And the iTunes store still has everything you need music-wise.  You do have two speakers instead of the four that the Air 2 has, but they’re not the tiny little phone-like speakers that you see on some other tablets. You still have excellent sound quality as you play from your iTunes library or stream from Apple Music.

But what’s The BIG DEAL, Lucille?

Tell me about the price!  Okay, okay – I’ll tell you about the price.

Everyone knows that you have to pay for quality and everyone knows that Apple means quality.  The first iPads would run you $500 way back in the day. The Air 2 when it came out was $629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the 64GB model and $829 for the 128GB model suggested retail price.

Would you believe me if I told you that you could get the new 32GB iPad with WiFi – in Gold, Silver, or Space Gray – for just $329.99?  What!?  Only $329.99!  About half as much as an iPad Pro.  Believe it.

And the new 128GB iPad with WiFi in any of the same colours for just $429.99?  Believe that too.

The new, upgraded iPad for only $329.99. Wow. Just, wow.

Should I Buy One?

Is this a trick question?

Seriously – If you have an Air 2 already, you can hang on to it for awhile and still be okay.  If this is your first iPad, or you have an older model, now is the time for the new iPad.  The price is a HUGE selling point – and this is upgraded Apple quality.  And the $329.99 is almost impulse buy money. 

So don’t run to the store – wouldn’t want you to trip and fall – but walk on into the store and get your new iPad.  They’ll be selling like hotcakes, but you can’t watch Netflix on a hotcake.

Skin Care Du Jour: The Newest Trend In Skin Care

Microcurrent facials are one of the hottest skin care trends. Enhance your skin’s natural age-fighting abilities with this successful treatment.

What is a microcurrent facial?

The International Dermal Institute uses an electrical current at a very low voltage to fight ageing. The microcurrent stimulates cells to enhance the skin. The current triggers chemicals already found in the skin to make it look young.

Benefits of a microcurrent facial

A microcurrent facial has many advantages. It can even be used alternative medicine for restoring damaged skin! Some other benefits include:

  • Less wrinkles
  • Lifted eyebrows
  • Better muscle tone
  • Improved circulation

These benefits can appear wherever the microcurrent is applied. Not only on your face, but the same results can be seen on your neck as well!

Technology used in the microcurrent

The patent for the microcurrent facial device states that it can sometimes be used in conjunction with other techniques. Sometimes it is paired with photo rejuvenation technologies, which enhances the effect of the microcurrent.

The device that delivers the microcurrent uses electrodes to distribute the microcurrent evenly. This is done by placing the electrodes in a particular pattern on the skin. The patent also mentions that surface area is of vital importance in the microcurrent technology. The shape of the apparatus ensures that as much skin as possible receives the current.

Although you are applying a current to your face and neck, there is no risk associated with this treatment. The current is naturally occurring in your body and is only enhanced by the technology.

A scientifically backed treatment

A study published by the National Institute of Health found that applying a microcurrent increased the body’s production of various molecules. Specifically, there was an increase in amino acid and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. Both of these molecules are essential for cell repair and production.

Life Science Journal published an article which found that nearly half (over 48%) of women who were treated with a microcurrent showed the greatest improvement in wrinkle reduction on their forehead. 11% of women also saw growth near their nose and mouth.

Another form of microcurrent treatment

Another form of the microcurrent treatment is called ‘specific iontophoresis’. This treatment penetrates the skin at a deeper level. Although it uses the same process as a microcurrent facial, it lasts longer.

Advanced Clinical Aesthetics found that particular iontophoresis allows clients to target where the current goes through the body. This enables customers greater control over their skin and their appearance. Their study reports examples of various application settings. For overall coverage, high frequency and small waves should be used. If, on the other hand, you are looking for deeper skin penetration, use low frequency and larger waves.

The next trend?

Microcurrent facials undoubtedly have a huge impact. They decrease ageing and rejuvenate the skin. Best of all, they are scientifically proven to pose no risk! Many studies also show that this treatment is effective, so you can expect to see results!

  •    Yellow and red cherry tomatoes (1 cup)
  •    Teriyaki sauce
  •    EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  •    Cauliflower rice (2 cups)

Take your bell pepper and thinly slice it and set it aside until ready to sauté. Cut all your tomatoes in halves or quarters depending on your preference. Once you’ve chopped everything, lightly drizzle the EVOO into a pan on a medium high heat. Add all the vegetables and the pre-shredded chicken into the pan to sauté.

Carbonated water also satisfies thirst while soda makes you thirstier. You won’t have the sugar crash with carbonated water that you get from sodas either. In my opinion, there are also more flavor profiles to choose from with carbonated water than with soda.
