The South is steeped in history that spans much more than Southern belles, debutante balls, or Sunday barbecues with smoked meats and crawfish boils. In the past decade, there’s been a revival of the Old South with a new spin, particularly when it comes to the food scene.

Many local chefs are going back to their roots and celebrating Southern cuisine with long forgotten ingredients and menu items. These chefs are also evolving the culinary history of the South by drawing on newer immigrant cultures. It’s this mixing of the Old South with the new that makes a weekend in Charlotte a must.

Get some beautiful shoes

Shoes are something that men don’t tend to notice that often and this is the reason they tend to fall at the last hurdle. Shoes are however very noticeable and they can easily make or break what you are wearing. I recently purchased some great Hugo Boss shoes from Mainline Menswear and was very surprised by the amount of comments that I received immediately, especially from women! Remember that shoes are important, even if you don’t think that they are.

My Tips For Visiting New York City

My Tips For Visiting New York City

New York City is a city that you will never have enough time to explore, so you absolutely need to make the most of your time whilst you are there. In order to save time and get the most out of your experience I decided to write this short article about my tips for visiting New York City. Read on to find out more.

Getting there quickly

Getting from the airport to New York city should be as quick and painless as possible and the best way that I have found to do this is by taking a private car service. For example, a New York chaffeur service is absolutely perfect when you don’t want to take a taxi or a bus to get to the city. You don’t have to fight other people to get a taxi and you don’t have to dread the long and bumpy bus ride into Manhattan. A private car offers a comfortable ride and you don’t need to worry about your things being taken. In fact you can even sleep without the fear of missing your stop!

The USA is the place to be this summer

The USA is the place to be this summer

I have been lucky enough to visit the USA several times and it never fails to impress me. I fell in love with this vast country on my first trip to New York, each time I have left to fly home I am planning my next USA destination.

With flights being offered at such competitive rates these days you are just one click away from finding an amazing bargain. Make sure you do your research and have a look at the comparison sites – one good tip is to sign up to as many newsletters from airlines so you don’t miss out on a great bargain. I flew from London last time and could believe how cheap it was!

Why I Love The Caribbean

Why I Love The Caribbean

There is no question that the Caribbean is a wonderful place. I absolutely love the beaches, great weather and the lifestyle there. To me it is a pretty unique travel destination that you can’t find anywhere else on earth. I especially enjoy luxury Caribbean vacations and I wanted to talk to you a little bit more about the things that I find special about taking a holiday there.

The culture

One thing to notice about being in the Caribbean is without a doubt the culture, there is this laid back attitude that you simply cannot find anywhere else on the world. It is also very difficult to describe, but once you see it you will notice it instantly. The best way I can describe it is that the people are simply open, relaxed and much more carefree than any of other place (holiday or not) that I have ever been to. I think this must come from the slower paced and easier lifestyle in the sun.

The numbers behind Celebrity TV Shows

I was recently looking over my finances and seeing how much I would be able to save up for my next holiday, I decided that it was best to take a loan . Whilst I was waiting for a response from Cash Lady about the approval of my loan I started reading about ‘how the other half live.’

I started to read an article that detailed the amounts of money celebrities were paid for the reality tv shows they appear on. I of course knew that they would be earning good money, but I was really surprised to read that some earned over 300,000 pounds! That seems like a huge amount of money for just a few weeks work, especially when you consider that they are not really A-List celebs.

Do you know how to chat online?

The world of communications has changed with the rise and widespread of the internet, and we are now more connected than ever before. We no longer need to spend money in expensive phone bills to speak to someone who lives on the other end of the planet as we can now do that from our computers and smart devices for the very low cost of an internet data package. This has really changed the dynamics of many aspects of society as we are now able to reach people instantly without effort. One aspect of life that has seen a big change is the world of dating; as we are no longer obliged to go out to meet potential partners.
