Design Your Destiny – Wealthy Affiliate Review

How would you like to be fully self-sufficient and working your own hours in the comfort of your own home? This is something that so many people I know, have tirelessly searched for. It’s something that I’ve spent the last ten years searching for. When online marketing first came about, I looked into the possibility of tapping into it, but it was a long, lonely road with not much help. I waded through pages and pages of tutorials and it just seemed to be muddled and complicated, and I eventually gave up with the mindset that it was just not for me.

Patience pays off

It is said that patience is a virtue, and so I waited patiently and continued to work my 5 day a week job. I watched as technology advanced in leaps and bounds and opportunities started popping up for the ordinary man. I’m no techno savvy superhuman, but I was determined to find my opportunity.

Late last year, I literally stumbled onto the best online business opportunity I believe I will ever find. I’m by no means a seasoned veteran, quite the contrary, but I have never seen something quite like Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate

This amazing platform was founded in 2005 by Kyle, Co-founder and Marketing Chief, and Carson, Co-founder and Design Chief. Kyle has a real passion for helping people, and when he isn’t helping people within the community, he’s busy behind the scenes creating training tutorials. Kyle’s approach to Marketing speaks volumes as to the heart of this man “You cannot make people love a service, you have to create a service that people love.” Carson’s approach to design shows a man passionate about making an idea come to life in a way that is simple and easy to understand “Effective design isn’t the process of adding more, it is the focused process of being able to take away and simplify.”

Wealthy Affiliate has the smartest technical team of over 25 people who work behind the scenes to make it all happen. They are driven to provide a service in design, technology, marketing and support that helps the way people do business online and to ensure simplicity and efficiency along the way.

Pay It Forward

Wealthy Affiliate is also a community based platform, and is created around a Pay It Forward ethos, with the sole aim by the Co-founders, of helping their community members to create successful online businesses. They have built their system in a way that encourages community members to get involved in the support and training system, and to reach out to each other to support and help in a way I’ve never seen online before. The genuine care and support for the community is something that Kyle and Carson have inspired from the top and seamlessly filtered down through the member body, resulting in over 1 million people building relationships with one another and caring about each other’s success.

 

Innovation and Advancement

The team at Wealthy Affiliate are all about innovation and advancement, with 155 system improvements in the last year, and over 750 training updates per year. They have just rolled out a huge upgrade with the new User Experience and new look throughout the platform, giving it a cleaner, sharper look and streamlining and simplifying navigation around the site.

“Tomorrow will always be better than today” according to Kyle and Carson, justifiably true with the impressive updates recently made to the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

 

Conclusion

There are over 3,75 billion people using the internet. With the right training and tools, anyone can accomplish success online. Wealthy Affiliate members succeed at the highest rate out of any platform online! I agree, anything new can be overwhelming at first, that’s normal especially if you don’t have any online business experience.

So, you really don’t have to worry, you’ll learn as you go through the training, I have no doubt! Stick with Wealthy Affiliate and you will achieve far beyond what you expect is possible.

I’m so excited to be where I am in this journey, and I really want to extend a hand to my readers and invite you to join me here at Wealthy Affiliate.

Special Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s Day is a day recognized around the whole world, to honor Mothers and Grandmothers in all walks of life. To be exact, it’s celebrated across 46 countries, and although the origin of Mother’s Day goes back to the ancient Greek era, it is also celebrated in the UK in the form of a “Mothering Sunday”. The actual day “Mother’s Day” was started by American pioneering woman, Julia Ward Howe and Anna Jarvis and despite it only being in existence for under 100 years, it has become a hugely popular celebration. No doubt due to the great value most of us recognize in our Mothers. What better way to pay tribute to our Mothers than with Special Mother’s Day Gifts.

The Ancient Greeks and Romans

The earliest history of this celebrated day dates back to the Greek annual spring festival which was dedicated to maternal goddesses. The Greeks used the occasion to honor Rhea, wife of Cronus and mother of many deities of Greek mythology.

Ancient Romans also celebrated with a spring festival called Hilaria, which was dedicated to Cybele, a mother goddess.

Early Christians also celebrated a Mother’s Day on the fourth Sunday of Lent in honor of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ. In England the holiday was expanded to include all mothers, and was called Mothering Sunday.

Mothering Sunday

The more recent history of Mother’s Day dates back to the 1600s in England, where Mothering Sunday was celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Lent is the 40-day period leading up to Easter. After a service in church to honor Virgin Mary, children brought gifts and flowers to honor their own Mothers.

Servants, apprentices and other workers staying away from their homes were even encouraged by their employers to visit their Mothers and honor them.

This custom of Mothering Sunday unfortunately almost completely died out by the 19th century, but fortunately came to be celebrated again after World War 2 when American serviceman brought the custom home.

Julia Ward Howe – History of Mother’s Day

Julia Ward Howe was the first American to suggest an official celebration of Mother’s Day in 1872. Julia was an activist, writer and poet and shot to fame with her civil war song “Battle Hymn of the Republic”. Julia Ward Howe suggested that the 2nd June should be the day all Americans celebrate Mother’s Day and that it should be dedicated to peace. Julia tirelessly championed the cause of an official celebration of Mother’s Day, she wrote many appeals to woman urging them to rise against war, and she initiated a Mothers’ Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June in Boston which ran for a number of years. Her idea spread and was welcomed, but was later replaced by the Mother’s Day holiday which is now celebrated in May.

Anna Jarvis – the Founder of Mother’s Day

Anna Jarvis is recognized as the Founder of Mother’s Day in America. Even though she never married, and never had children, she worked hard to bestow honor on all mothers, and in so doing, aptly became known as the Mother of Mother’s Day.

Anna Jarvis was inspired by her own Mother who was an activist and social worker, and who used to express her desire that someday somebody should honor all Mothers, living and dead, and pay tribute to the contributions made by them. Anna was a devoted daughter and never forgot her Mother’s words, and when Mrs Jarvis died in 1905, Anna resolved to fulfill her Mother’s desire of having a Mother’s Day. Anna worked hard to make this happen, and with her supporters help wrote letters to people in positions of power lobbying for the official declaration of the Mother’s Day holiday. Her hard work paid off and by 1911 Mother’s Day was celebrated in almost ever American state and a resolution signed by the president designating the second Sunday in May as Mother’s Day.

Conclusion

Today Mother’s Day is celebrated in many countries such as US, UK, India, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, Mexico, Canada, China, Japan, Belgium, South Africa any many more. People use the day as an opportunity to pay tribute to their Mothers and to thank them for all their love and support. The day has become very popular and some countries have noticed their phone lines experiencing maximum traffic on this day. Sons and daughters have been known to not only spoil their Mothers with special gifts, chocolates and flowers, but more importantly to take the time to either connect over the phone or make arrangements to spend some quality time with their Mothers.

So I encourage all reading this to either find that Special Mother’s Day Gift below, or at least contact or visit your Mothers on this special day coming up in May and honor them for all they’ve done for you over the years, and for their love and support of you.
Happy Mother’s Day!

Small Closet Storage Ideas

If truth be told, a woman never seems to have enough closet storage space, and we can all benefit from some small closet storage ideas. Every woman’s home layout is different, and we all have varying small closet storage issues. I’m going to expand on some ideas and storage options below, which will hopefully help you to solve some of your small closet storage challenges.

This is a modern DIY closet made up of translucent white doors and panels with a patterned design. It comprises creative design cubes which can be used separately or connected together to create a greater storage space. Plastic connectors and steel framework allows you to create a closet unique to your requirements. It is easy to assemble, waterproof, dust-resistant and easy to clean with a damp cloth. The doors feature a hole handle for ventilation.

Portable Storage Organizer Wardrobe Closet

This is a similar DIY organizer, again very easy to assemble, strong and durable, it comes with full instructions on how to assemble. Plastic connectors and steel framework ensure your closet can take considerable weight, especially having those warm winter jackets in mind.

No closet space at all? That’s not a problem, as long as you have floor space, with this heavy-duty 100kg clothes rack on wheels, made by Tatkraft. This clothes rack on wheels can be placed anywhere in your room and can be easily moved around when necessary.

Ladies fashion trends in 2018

No doubt, one of the foremost questions on every ladies mind as we near the end of 2017, is what will ladies fashion trends be in 2018. Well, that’s an interesting question, and for many of us old and young, some guidance goes a long way in helping us make the most of our wardrobes as we enter in to the new year. Helping Hand

New York Fashion Week

The annual New York Fashion Week highlighting spring/summer of 2018 was, as usual, a great success with top designers stepping up to the plate with their best designs for the new season. What was interesting was that there were many designers focusing on similar styles and also retaining styles of the past but bringing a new look to them by tweaking and reworking them with added style and embellishment. Why re-invent the wheel right? Don’t mess with success!New York Fashion Week

Trends forecast for 2018

These are some of the ladies fashion trends forecast for 2018. While I go through them, think about what you already have in your wardrobes, what can be adapted to work in line with these trends, and what you will need to get up to speed and strut your stuff. Don’t get overwhelmed by it all, it is a lot but you don’t necessarily need it all. Pick a few ideas that stand out to you, trends that you can have fun with and that suit you, and then build your 2018 wardrobe around those ideas.

  • Have fun with layers of Pastels – soft shades of Lilac were very popular, and the idea this new season is to layer with the same pastel color in various shades and textures. Although Lilac took center stage, all pastels are in.
  • Millennial pink is still very popular but added to that is a dash of bright red, perfectly suited for Valentine’s Day 2018.Millenial Pink
  • The good old favorite “Fanny Packs” – this hands-free bag has been pimped into something much more than an athletic looking bag that fastens around the waist. Designers have created chic and trendy little bags that you can wear comfortably without having to carry them.
  • Sequins, glitz and glamour are in and not only in the stylish evening dresses hitting the runways, but also in the trendy new basketball jerseys, track jackets and sweat shirts.Sequins
  • Silk has always been a firm favorite and women just love the feeling of wearing silk. Next season sees a lot of sexy, sultry, black sheer skin-baring fabrics sewn into evening dresses. A lot of fun could be had with this idea, so go bold!

Sheer White Evening Dress

  • The classic white dress has been splashed with rainbow colored designs in stripes and also in a paint-splattered look to bring a breath of fresh air to any occasion. This look was a firm favorite among many designers so I’m sure we will see much of it in 2018.
  • Tassels and fringe is in this new season as nearly every top designer showcased fringed designs down the runways. This look is both classy and fun-loving and portrays a spirit of youthful zest for life!
  • The old, boring straw bag has been given a face lift with added details and embellishments making it really pop.
  • Stark White – the elegant White suite was very popular with a splash of black trim, chic and classy as always.

Timeless Elegance

Long time favorites that will still form the foundation of any woman’s wardrobe are the sleek, tailored, collared shirts, buttoned up all the way, the pencil skirt, and the dark, polished, tailored denim all looking fantastic with new lines and embellishments to bring in the new.

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!

Shiny, glittery shoes added glitz and glamour to many an outfit, with no holding back on the amount of glitter footwear gracing the runways.Glitter Shoes

High fashion headbands are going to be big, with bold printed headscarves, feathered bands and even large bow headpieces making an entrance in the fashion scene. Straw hats have undergone a complete overhaul, you won’t be disappointed!

Fashion Headband

The ’90s sunglass shape is making a reappearance, with razor edges and a bold experimentation with color.

90's Sunglasses

 

All Time Favorite

The absolute, all time favorite piece to have, was the classic trench coat in a way never seen before, with beautiful metallic-threaded embroidery, raw edges and cape-toppers to a tailored under-coat. Nothing says style and sophistication better than a quality trench coat, so this is a piece I recommend we all work towards getting for the new 2018 season. There is so much that can be done with a good trench coat, and so many looks to create.

White Trench Coat

A color for all seasons

The color of the season definitely stands out as an Orange zest hue, seen in almost every designer’s collection, bold and beautiful, fresh and fun! Give it a try, you may just surprise yourself and find that you absolutely love it.

Colour of the season

A Final Note

The year 2018 is set to be the year for you. Time to slow down the rat race and remember who is really important. Time to spoil yourself a little and lift yourself out of the sublime. What better way to energize yourself and lift your spirits than to grow your confidence and courage with a new look. You don’t have to go all the way straight off the bat, but make a start, set some goals, put together a plan and take action to get there. One step at a time, and keep going, you will get there.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and that it’s brought you some value. I would love to help all you beautiful ladies to realize your greatest asset…..and that is you. To make the most of all you are and all you have, and to grow your confidence by putting your best foot forward. Please believe that there is value in every one of us, let it show by the way you treat yourself.
Please feel free to leave your comments at the end of this post, I would love to hear from you.
Warm regards,

My Bella Design

About Me

Welcome to My Bella Design, my very first website!  Please join me on my journey of growth and exploration in the world of Ladies fashion and jewelry online.  This topic is so broad and extensive and I hope to be able to break it down into segments of content rich information, to bring you value and inspiration for your unique and beautiful style.

About My Website

MY STORY

I’m a forty something year old professional, juggling a full time job, a husband and a family.  My daughter is studying a degree in Foundation Phase Education and also working as a Teacher’s Intern.  My son is going into his final year at High School whilst also juggling a swimming career.

Working woman

I grew up on the South Coast of South Africa, and currently live in a suburb very close to Durban.  I’ve always worked in Administration, and currently work in the Finance Office of a local Primary School.  I’ve been on a mission of personal growth this year, and studied a bookkeeping course.  I’m very proud to say that I passed with distinction and am now a qualified bookkeeper.South Africa

 

I’ve been married to my husband, Guy, for 27 years and whilst I will say marriage is hard work, I value the love and dedication of my life partner and best friend.  We’ve shared more than half my lifetime together, of highs and lows, triumph and tradegies.  Life would have been really bleak without him.

 

WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE

I’ve been craving something more than working day to day just to bring in an income sufficient to see me to the next pay date. My job is mundane, and although contributes to support education in South Africa, it falls short in bringing a sense of accomplishment and
meaning.

I would love to be able to bring value and touch people all over the world with something that could help inspire them and boost their self esteem.  We all feel better about ourselves when we look good, but for so many people, style isn’t something that comes naturally to them.  Some guidance and encouragement is needed, and that’s ok.  We all have something that we’re good at, and it just may not be fashion sense.  Nothing wrong with that.

Own Fashion Style

Even for those that have established their own unique style, the idea of going into the cities shopping malls to try and find new fashion items and accessories, may be hugely daunting and if you’re anything like me, I simply won’t go if I’m not completely in the mood.  The weekends are jam packed with so many things to do that I don’t get time for during the working week, that the last thing I feel like doing is shopping for much needed clothes and accessories.  Online shopping takes the hard work out of it, and my goal is to be the guiding light in connecting you to trustworthy, affordable shopping opportunities.

Shopping

THE GOAL OF MY SITE

I hope to deliver content that will bring you value and help you to broaden your fashion knowledge and establish your unique style and look.  I plan to be the bridge that connects you to a world of fashion opportunity, in a fun and affordable way.

The Bridge

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Warm regards,

Kim Gower-Winter
