Disc Doctor retrieved my pictures!

A while ago, all the pictures I have ever owned in the past year suddenly vanished. I looked everywhere on my computer, and they are just not there! So, my husband and I took it to the Apple store, where they referred us to the service center who told us that it might take more than 10 days. So, we googled other computer tech places and we were surprised that the cost to do the job would be between 170$ to 350$ !

Anyway, to make a very long story short, we did some further googling and  we finally found a software  that can retrieve all missing files for only 69$. It lets you download a demo first, and then, if the missing files show up in the demo, you’ll need to buy it in order to retrieve.

Selecting the images I want to retrieve 🙂

Well, I found all my files and I am so happy… Next time you lose something on your computer, you won’t have to panic, here’s the link :

Baked fries: the healthier choice.

I love making these oven baked fries as I am trying to cut down on deep fried food lately, plus, I hate seeing my kitchen splatter with oil. Apart from that, they are extremely easy to make! Don’t expect these baked fries to be a 100% substitute for the real French fries,these taste better! But it’s definitely a healthier choice for those potato lovers who want to avoid deep-frying fries.

This is the simplest and easiest recipe to make next to burgers, steak or even as a snack for dinner!

Here’s what you need:

  • potatoes ( DUH!! )
  • Oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • garlic cloves

And here’s what you need to do :

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C
  2. Wash and cut potatoes into any shape you like. Soak into water and salt for 5 minutes to prevent them from turning dark.
  3. Once you dry the potatoes, season with all spices, then lay them on a baking tray lined with foil and put in the oven for 15 minutes
  4. Take the tray out after 15 minutes, add slices of garlic on top of the fries, then back again in the over for another 15 minutes.

Goodbye PowerPoint, hello Flixtime!

I am not a fan of powerpoint, i find it a little bit complicated and a time consuming software. So this morning, while flipping through the Tv channels, I saw BBC playing a demo about something called Flixtime. Flixtime lets you upload pictures, add text and choose your background music.

Of course, I went to check it out, and here’s what I did in exactly 3 minutes! :

I am sure if i updated my registration to the PRO one, i will be able to do a lot more. It is also great for personal portfolios.

Up CLOSEt and personal: Own your own designer’s bag now!

I came across this page on facebook that had pictures of designers’ bags, and since one of my addictions is bags, I had to check it out of course. I surfed through the page and found a variety of to-die-for Louis Vuittons in very reasonable prices, some were more than half off the original price!

11 Ways to Speed Up WordPress

WordPress is inherently fast, and that’s why so many professional bloggers call it their choice platform.

When you’re not prepared for lots of traffic, it’s common for a web host to suspend your account temporarily, and that’s something you don’t want. If your writing is decent and you’ve been doing some minimal promotion, then it could happen to you. Think positively and prepare your blog as though it’s going to be a huge success. To do that, here is a tutorial on how to speed up your WordPress site.

Gotta be the best cupcakes in town!

Banner inside the shop

I keep hearing my cousin talking about the sweet stuff cupcake shop and how amazing the cupcakes are. And since cupcakes are all around town, I wasn’t really looking  to try any . Well I finally took the plunge after all and decided to go there today.

I ordered six cupcakes, one flavor of each ( i went late, the rest of the flavors were OUT 😦 ),so anyway, to make a long love story short, the cupcakes were smooth and soft it was hard to believe they were made locally! I’d say they were imported from somewhere fancy,lol. Everything from the display of the cupcakes to the way they tasted illustrated precision at its finest.

that's what the fuss is all about!

The place is small and cozy with a wonderful artistic decoration:

P.S: they even have low-calorie cupcakes 😉

And no, I didn’t eat all the cupcakes, I took one bite of each.

Stop crying every time you cut onions :)

  • Just have someone else cut, slice or chop them for you 🙂
