The high power chandeliers and illuminated ceiling with false ceiling creates a warm welcoming atmosphere and adds to the cheer. The reception desk should be well lit. It should not be very bright. The counter is lit to draw attention of the guest as he enters the lobby.

The restaurant should be of dim light with pool lights which are attractive. The bars and lounges are lit by table lamps or any other soft lights which make the area attractive. Small focal lamps too can be used.  The conference rooms should be well illuminated with light from the ceiling. The rooms should not be very bright. Separate lighting in the room is not required as the various areas of the rooms are provided by separate lights. The bathrooms should be bright with vapour proof lights.

The staircase in the hotel should have good lights, either along the wall, or beneath the rail, or overhead lighting. This is to prevent accidents. The corridor should have enough lighting and not be dark.

Loans

An overview of basic documentation needed for a title loan

Let us begin with the basics. What is a title loan?

When a person needs money, he needs to borrow it from some source. This is a system where a person can borrow from a lender and in lieu of money, the documents of the vehicle including the title are kept with the lender. This kind of loan is normally for a short term but at a higher rate of interest. The lender keeps a lien on the car. The borrower can continue to use the vehicle and repay the loan amount based on the agreement. If he is unable to repay as per the agreement, then the lender can legally repossess the vehicle to recover his money.

It is a fairly simple process and takes very little time to execute. The basic documents needed for the process are as follows:

  1. A valid government-issued identity proof. The social security number and a valid id proof. This can be a passport, driving license, id card issued by any other authority like military or government agency.
  2. The Title loans are available in some states. So you need to show a proof that you are a resident of the state where you are looking for this loan. This can be a utility bill, registration papers or any relevant documents.
  3. Financial documents proving that you can repay the loan. It could be salary slips, tax record, bank statements etc. Unemployed or retired people can show other pertinent papers like a statement from social service or pension statements.
  4. Obviously the vehicle Title and registration papers of the vehicle. They need to ensure that car has no previous lien against it, is registered in your name and is insured against damage or loss.

Title loan companies also ask for some references.  They want at least a personal and a professional reference. This reaffirms your credibility. These people are contacted only if the loan is not repaid or the borrower absconds.

So now you have all the required information. Check all the documents and then go to a trusted company.

Hair Treatment

The Truth About Hair Loss Treatment Business

Hair loss is an invariable part of human life that can have innumerable physical, psychological and emotional effects. While for men, hair loss is looked upon as a general that does not take much away from them but for women, baldness can indicate an end of things. This invariably makes women more vulnerable to hair loss treatments. They are seen spending time, money and energy on treatments that claim to be very effective but are often found to be worthless.

Do these treatments really work?

Did you know that the hair loss treatment industry has a net worth of $3.5 billion. It is as big an industry as the one that caters to cold and flu medication. This explains how widespread the issue of baldness is and how many people are concerned about it. The industry plays upon the emotions of the people and profits are generated from these vulnerabilities.

However, it is even more interesting to note that these treatments or miraculous cures are often found to be encouraging normal people with no hair loss issues to question themselves. It is also surprising to note that affordable hair transplants that work are hardly available.

The advertisements and the campaigns question normal every day hair fall that leads more people to start worrying about the health and quality of their hair. There is a particular amount of hair fall that happens on a regular basis and it is absolutely normal to have it but these businesses lead women to think otherwise. This is also called ‘creating a need’ that does not exist.

What can be done instead?

You will be appalled to know that 90% of these treatments won’t work. These are traps that men and women fall into and one of the prime reasons that these hair loss treatment businesses are gaining mileage. It is important to be able to differentiate between the fake ones and the effective ones.

Parkour Shoes

Here Is How I Started My Sports Equipments Business

I was a sportswoman in college:

The year I finished my college, I was already seeing Sam. Sam and I were due to have our first baby and Sam was very clear that he wanted to do further studies. So, reluctantly, my education and ambition had to take a back seat. I wanted to wait till John was old enough for me to take a plunge back into career.

Sam was doing very well at college and expected to get a wonderful breakthrough. Everything was going perfect. One fateful day, Sam met a fatal accident on his way to the college. The truck that collided with his car rammed his car to a stationery car on the road. Our whole life had come to a crashing halt!

John and I were left all to ourselves. We had a little saving and I knew it was not enough for us to even tide over another six months. I knew I could not afford to go out to work, not just yet because John’s emotional quotient was my prerogative. I wanted to be able to spend most of my time with him to make him feel secure.

I decided to open an online store for sports equipments:

The idea came to me when I was browsing an internet store. Incidentally, I got my son a pair of Parkour shoes from here.  Owning an online store had advantages in terms of less overheads and being able to spend time with my son.

Thank you Jesus, the effort was a success. Soon, I was having enough customers to be able to sail through smoothly. The online store has been my bread and butter and now ten years down the line and with the expansion in the product range we retail, it has seen a huge leap. John helps me with the supply and order logistics and I must say he is as meticulous as his father!

 

Bags

Why I Choose Ysl Over TheRest

 

I am not brand conscious at all:

It has been years since I have shopped by brands. My shopping expeditions are long drawn not because I like to hop in to luxury brands and fuss over the buckles and the belts but because I give functionality of the bag my top priority and once that is set, I am done.

Everyone dreads to accompany me:

When I am shopping outside and more particularly for my bags and shoes, my family and friends seem tosuddenly disown me. They dread spending long hours at the showrooms while I preen through the display with an x ray vision and try to pick the one- the best one that would suit me and my need!

My friends have been coaxing me to convert to ysl:

A lot of friends who work in the fashion industry and who know my rhetoric with shopping have been long coaxing me to start converting to ysl bags because each bespoke bag is made with the working woman in mind. What usually follow are explanations about the nitty gritty and the extra pockets and the best buckles and the most spacious blah-blah!

But I was not really convinced. So, this time I actually made it to the store. And surprisingly, I instantly liked one! Generally, there is only one bag that I like from the entire collection but here I liked all of them. The color palette was just perfect and the ysl bags with black straps were so elegant that they could up your oomph quotient by a hundred and ten percent.

I am so glad I tried:

It happens sometimes that you choose to ignore your friend’s recommendation but I think they merit credit. Guys, just rush to the nearest store and check out the season’s collection. I am sure that if someone as finicky as me can find their dream bag then anyone in this world can!

Carpet Cleaning

Easy Ways to Clean Your Carpet On Your Own

Carpet care can be easy:

Every home owner wishes to have a clean and grime free carpet area. But the opposite is actually true. The carpet is also one place where the maximum grime accumulates and sits for days and even months.

Cleaning your own carpets need not be a hassle:

We know that when you have to displace heavy furniture and also let time for the carpet to dry, you can feel hassled and not want to do it as often as it is desirable. But with a little planning and a little perseverance you can fix those coffee and crayon stains on the carpet without paying exorbitantly to the carpet cleaners.

Here is some advice on cleaning your carpet:

  • Sprinkle and clean

If you do not have the carpet cleaning powder that is store bought you can use baking soda instead. Just sprinkle the powder over the entire carpet area and leave it overnight. The powder will stick with the grime and also reduce the odor. The next morning you can vacuum the powder and find that there is at least a fifty percent reduction in the grime that was built u on your carpet albeit even the grime that was not visible.

  • Using the carpet cleaning shampoo

If you have bought a carpet cleaning shampoo in a bid to do it yourself, you must first of all read very attentively the instructions on the label. Some shampoos may need to be diluted. You must make sure to perform a path test in an inconspicuous place where it is not noticeable to check for the color fastness of the carpet.

The shampoo must not be excessively poured because it can have the carpet to wet to use in a short time. The shampoo needs to be brushed well and dried and then a vacuum is pressed in to service that will remove the dried up shampoo.
