Bitcoin Vault - Investment / Business Opportunity 2020 - Mining City


A guest post by my brother, Heinrich, partner and investor in a company called Mining City.

I was thinking in this time of lockdown a lot of things became clearer to me as an individual. Some of the things you may agree with and some maybe not but the reality is that somewhere out there, there's individuals who are waiting for their jobs or industries to reopen or waiting on the government for a relieve parcel etc. It's really sad and I've decided against this and taken action to build a tax and government reliant free investment and business that's sustainable and good for the normal person on the ground to the current CEO or business owner. Guys, stop chasing money by working for it. Learn how to multiply it. It's possible with Mining City and Bitcoin Vault.

Read Rich Dad Poor Dad, now that book changed my natural life around and my way of looking at things. One of my favourite quotes from him. "the poor mindset says, I can't afford it... The rich mindset says, how can I afford it"

Bridal stacked bracelets - still a hot fashion trend

Stacking Bracelets are continuing to be a big hit. Celebrities are now loading up their bracelets and we see it all over the magazines and on the red carpets. Stacking, layering, mixing and matching of bracelets is a fun way to add a little more personality to your outfit.

I am totally obsessed with this look! We all know the saying less is more but when it comes to stacked bracelets, more is definitely more.

Here's my take on the layered, stacked look - the mixing and matching of classic pearls, crystals and sparkly rhinestones!

 For The Classic Bride


The Vintage Bride 

A retro, old Hollywood bracelet with a vintage feel, complete with silver lace filigree, shell pearls and crystals.

For the Boho Bride| Bohemian| Beach Wedding



Cool and Contempory 

For the Modern Bride

Five layered strands, different shades of grey pearls, crystals, rhinestones and silver accents. There's no clasp, which makes this bracelet easy to wear as you simply wrap it around your wrist one strand at a time.

 The Alternative Bride


This bracelet is one piece but gives the impression of multiple bangles being worn together. Comes with interchangable, removable charms.

How to wear jewellery to complement your skin tone

First things first. We need to figure out if your skin tone is warm or cool.

The best way to determine this is to take a white piece of paper and hold it under a light next to the underside of your wrist. Now you need to decide if your veins are more on the blue or the green side. If your veins are more on the blue side you have a cool skin tone. If your veins are more on the green side, you have a warm skin tone.

You can also establish whether your skin tone is cool or warm by following this general rule of thumb. If you look better in silver and blue, you probably have a cool skin tone. If you look better in gold and orange, you are probably warm toned.

Now let's figure out whether you are warm or cool depending on your natural hair colour, eye colour and the undertones in your skin.
