Amazon Black Friday!

With Christmas just around the corner and only one more pay day to see us through (eek), we are all looking to buy our family and friends the best gifts at the best prices.

Luckily for us, Americas gift of Black Friday made its way across the pond in 2010, and has blessed us ever since. Set to take place on Friday 25th November this year, us Brits have fully embraced the chaos, and we spent $2 billion last year!

black-friday-santa

This year, Amazon is the gift that keeps on giving. They started their Black Friday sale at midnight on Monday 14th November, a full twelve days before Black Friday officially begins, and have just announced that they will be extending the offers until the 22nd December!

A spokesperson claimed that we will be able to ‘find deals as often as every five minutes’, and the company have already slashed the prices of thousands of their products including HD TV’s, Audio products, home accessories and toys.

Products will only be on offer for as long as stocks last, with thousands of ‘Lightening Deals’ introduced throughout a short period of time. Having extended their Black Friday offers until the 22nd December, we have just enough time to get the Christmas presents sorted before the Boxing Day sales start!

Of course this promotional tactic is attracting a lot of attention, and there are daily lists being published online that can point you in the right direction to get your hands on the best deals, and keep your eyes on twitter, as many promotions are being announced on social media!

Spielberg in Birmingham?

If you haven’t heard already, the one and only Steven Spielberg has been filming in several areas of Birmingham for the past few weeks, transforming areas of Digbeth and The Jewellery Quarter into a futuristic dystopian scene for his up and coming film ‘Ready Player One’. The film is said to be released in 2018, so still quiet a while before things are in full swing, however, this didn’t stop us here at Get You Seen from getting excited! For those of you who couldn’t quiet manage the journey to Brum town, here are a few sneak peaks just for you (including an extra special glimpse of Spielberg himself).

Graffiti and wreckage was a prominent feature of the set

We’re all familiar with the term ‘you are what you eat’, so why is the same not true for our beauty regime and the skincare products we use?

As summer begins to draw to a close, we can look forward to the return of cosy knits, ankle boots, pumpkin spiced lattes, Halloween and fireworks, but as the leaves shed from the trees, and the weather begins to take a turn for the cold, autumnal vibes are not exactly ideal for our hands! Just as it is said that our eyes are the windows to our soul, our hands are often one of the first body parts to show signs of ageing. While many of us wouldn’t wash our faces without moisturising afterwards, many of us neglect our hands leading inevitably to dry, cracked and ageing skin.

Welcome home Team GB

Team GB has safely returned to home soil and we’re still not over what a successful Olympic games it has been. Team GB managed to secure a total of 67 medals, 27 gold, 23 silver and 17 bronze beating there total in the London 2012 Olympic games. Great Britain won gold medals across 15 different sports which is more than any other nation putting themselves above China for the first time since 1984 and finishing second in the medal tally.

Team GB travelled in style in the British Airways Boeing 747 which displayed ‘victoRIOus’ on the side. The gold nose plane carried home 320 athletes who indulged in 77 bottles of champagne and a three course meal for their 11 hour journey home. Gold medal holders were treated to first class while bronze and silver received business class. Despite the other athletes settling for economy this didn’t interfere with the beaming smiles across Team GB and the champagne was flowing before takeoff.

“I have only been here in the country a couple of hours and it’s amazing the number of people who have come here to welcome us,” Adam Peaty explained who secured Team GB’s first gold medal but as well as a new world record in the Men’s 100m breaststroke. Other successes came from Max Whitlock who won two individual gold medals and one bronze in the men’s gymnastics and Nicola Adams who won gold and retained her women’s flyweight title. Both athletes were the first to be seen as the plane doors opened. Jack Laugher who won gold and silver in diving tweeted upon his arrival ‘Wow, that reception was crazy. Thank you Great Britain and everyone else for all your support.’

Rio 2016 saw heartbreak, strength but most importantly ambition from every athlete across every nation. Brazil put on a spectacular show from start to finish and like the athletes we’re counting down the days until Tokyo 2020.

Should the real be taken out of reality?

Reality TV greeted our screens back in 2002 with the American reality television programme, The Osbournes. The show ran until March 21, 2005 with the first season being the most-viewed series ever on MTV. The Osbournes features Ozzy Osbourne, his wife and manager Sharon and their children Jack and Kelly. With major events such as Sharon dealing with cancer and the aftermath of an ATV accident that nearly killed Ozzy, there is no argument that the programme was merely produced for our entertainment.The-Osbournes-Wallpaper

While the show was very much focused on the family without the need of glitz and glamour that reality TV enforces nowadays, there were rumours that the programme was in fact staged. This was followed after an interview with Jack and Kelly who stated that some of the antics on the show were arranged by MTV producers. Despite these claims being denied by Ozzy Osbourne’s publicist, it created the now everyday debate of ‘what is actually real in reality TV?’

Just over a year after The Osbournes aired their final episode, a new reality TV show took over on May 31 2006. The Hills followed the lives of everyday people including the narrator, Lauren Conrad, and Kim Kardashian’s half brother, Brody Jenner with Kim Kardashian also making a guest appearance. The programme highlighted the dramas, issues and relationships the young people faced with the involvement of a production team.

tvsinopse011

The final episode on July 13th 2010 received a lot of backlash where in the finale the camera pans out to show the entire production team including cameramen and crewmembers which created a lot of controversy on the falseness of the Hills. The coming back show ‘That was then, this is now’ which aired last Sunday on MTV, featured the narrator and major character of the programme Lauren Conrad, taking us on her journey during The Hills and her life that now follows. The programme also settled the accusations of the programme being fake with Lauren confirming that what we saw was real and genuine with certain scenes creating the entertainment side of reality.

Upon her debut in The Hills, Kim Kardashian is now famous for appearing on the reality hit show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which follows the life of herself and her family. The show which has been running since October 14 2007, features the Kardashians growing up along with the expansion of the family. However with the constant presence of cameras, arguments are going to be exaggerated or it wouldn’t make the most interesting watch. So while we know that everything has never been sweet in the land of Taylor Swift and Kimye, it is questioned whether it was all a bit OTT.kardashians-promo-photo

America set the mark for reality TV until 2010 saw a break through with British reality TV. The Only Way Is Essex famously known as TOWIE, first aired on 10th October 2010, and has grown from strength to strength. The BAFTA award winning show features the dramatic lives of an expanding cast. Megan McKenna- famous for her appearance on Ex on the Beach- recently joined the iconic cast bringing the heat and all explosive drama that TOWIE is renowned for. The show features a lot of reference to characters tweets about one another yet they wait until filming to address their issues making the show entertaining with aspects of reality. 13718616_1176433282398969_7212891807779870019_n

So that’s our views but what’s yours? Is it fake for the cameras or is it in fact real with the involvement of filming?

The festivals are underway!

Festival season is well and truly upon us. We’ve had Glastonbury and Wireless but there is still so much to look forward to. We’re just hoping that the weather makes a miraculous improvement.

Glastonbury went above and beyond expectations with performers like Adele and Coldplay gracing the main stage. Now we’re half way through the summer and I’m starting to wonder if the sun is ever going to make an appearance. Yes we’ve had the occasional humid days but I still finding myself starting the day in a winter coat to then find myself looking weather confused on my way into the office.MTM3NTk0NjI3MjQ2MDA3NzI1

Glastonbury has been a phenomenon around the UK since the legend Jimi Hendrix passed away in 1970. With the festival selling out in seconds, it is definitely a once in a life time experience; let’s just hope that next year’s weather forecast is better.

Held in Finsbury Park, Wireless came to an end last weekend with an incredible line up featuring Calvin Harris, J Cole, Chase and Status and that’s just naming a few. With this festival allowing the crowd to go home at the end of the night without the need of camping meant that the wonderful British weather wasn’t as much of a problem as it was for Glastonbury.

wireless-festival-2016

Reading festival is a major festival in the calendar taking place on 26th August finishing the summer off on a bang with acts such as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Disclosure. The festival stretches across 8 different stages meaning there is something for everyone. Being one of the largest festivals in the UK it is one not to miss!

Let’s not forget the major festival which takes place every year which is V festival. How else to end your summer other than spending it at V! This festival sees the biggest and greatest performers flown all the way from America including: Justin Bieber, David Guetta and Rihanna – could Drake be making an appearance? 20th and 21st August is definitely set to be the biggest dates of summer 2016! We’re just hoping the weather holds up.

Guide to essential life hacks

We thought we’d give you a lowdown on the most popular life hacks to help with your organisation and productivity while being cost efficient and saving you plenty of time.

1. Creating a stand for your mobile phone

While your phone can be the greatest form to watch your latest TV shows and funny videos it can be discomforting for your arm and hand.

hqdefault

Introducing the sunglasses stand!

It’s simple yet effective in holding your phone upright. Giving your arms and yourself that well deserved rest.

2. The good batteries from the old

Your remote control has ran out of battery charge, as you go to change it you realise the batteries you replace them with has also had their day. fajb_bouncing_batteries_01_mar2015.png

The bounce test is perfect in telling the good from the bad. The batteries should be dropped from roughly 6 inches from the table. If they are good they will give one small bounce and fall over. The bad ones bounce around for a good couple of seconds.

3. Saving your phone charger

The common occurrence of chargers breaking is down to the bending of the wire.spring-around-lightning-cable-

Find yourself a pen spring and wrap it round your charger. This keeps the wire protected through keeping it straight ensuring there is no damage and the urge to bend.

4. Scrubbing the dirt of car headlights

Car headlights can get very greasy making your car looking well..not as sleek as you’d like it despite the many car washes.headlights-before-after-K.png

Toothpaste is just the fix you need. Your headlights will be looking brand new in no time.

5. What is the ring pull in the can actually for?

We use the ring pull to open the can but once it’s open it makes us wonder what its actual purpose is.enhanced-buzz-19187-1377120090-8.jpg

For those who drink cans with a straw here’s your ultimate fix. The ring pull acts as a straw holder to prevent the straw from rising out of your drink.

6. Flying low

We’ve all got a favourite pair of trousers or jeans with a dodgy zip that we can’t bring ourselves  to throw away. F5G4SBQHRWIFM1X_MEDIUM

Secure a key ring to your zipper and hook it around your button. The perfect mechanism to ensure you’ll never have the embarrassment of wondering how long your zip was undone.

That’s just a few of our favourite life hacks. Make sure to give them a try and send us any others you can think of @getuseen on twitter or through our hashtag #lovesandloathes.

 

 

Was Baba Vanga right?

Baba Vanga is well known for her previous predictions that evidently came true but the question is did she predict Brexit?

Baba Vanga was a blind Bulgarian mystic. She was born 31st January 1911 and died 11th August 1996. Baba lost her vision at the age of 12 after a freak accident which was supposedly blamed on a freak tornado or massive storm. It was then made apparent that she experienced her first vision days after the incident and she believed she had been given the ability to heal people and predict the future.

200px-Vanga

So what famous conspiracy’s has Baba predicted that have come true?

9/11

“Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.”- Predicted in 1989.

September 11, 2001 saw the death of thousands of people after planes were hijacked by Islamic extremists which collided into the world trade centres.

2004 Boxing Day Tsunami

“Cold regions will become warm … and volcanoes will awaken. A huge wave will cover a big coast covered with people and towns, and everything will disappear beneath the water. Everything will melt, just like ice.”- Predicted in 1950s.

26th December 2004 saw what was described as the world’s deadliest tsunami, with over 230,000 people killed and half a million injured causing devastation across the Indian Ocean.

The Election of Barack Obama

“The last US president.”

Baba correctly predicted that the 44th president of the United States would be African American. Whether he will be the last one, well we’ll have to wait and see.

Barack-Obama_pics_809

Baba Vanga’s upcoming predictions

So if that wasn’t scary enough, here’s a few more predictions that Baba has stated will happen in the foreseeable future.

Melting of ice caps

Baba predicted that 2033 will see the year of ice caps melting causing ocean levels to rise. This prediction sees truth in it through the increase in global warming.

Cloning of organs

Body organs will be cloned in 2046 which will become the easiest methods of treatment.

China will become the new super power

Another one of Baba Vanga’s predictions is China will become the new superpower in 2018 which in turn will bring an end to the United States and its economy. Baba has stated that the exploiters also known as the developed nations will become the exploited.

This is another prediction which already has elements of truth in it through China’s economy overtaking that of the United States.

Chinese_flag_(Beijing)_-_IMG_1104

The death of the Earth

 3797 sees the extinction of the Earth but the advancement of humans progressing to a new star system. While this prediction may seem far ahead and slightly farfetched it does make you wonder that if Baba’s previous predictions came true, can this?

So where does Brexit come into this?

So this week has been a challenge for Britain to say the least, with Brexit and David Cameron resigning could it have any relation to Baba Vanga’s predictions?

According to Baba Vanga, Europe will cease to exist by 2016 leaving only empty spaces and wasteland as remains. Now with everything that has happened it does leave us questioning what is next for both Britain and Europe. With the prediction set to happen this year it is merely a waiting game.

Featured therapist: Sandra Harris

BTPA logo

Sandra Harris has been a qualified member of the BTPA since 2006 after she found a common connection between her life as a qualified holistic therapist and her passion for horse-riding. Scouring through copies and copies of Equine magazines she owned, Sandra found them full of articles about Bowen Therapy and its positive effect on horses, leaving her thinking that if it could work on large, magnificent animals like Horses, then it must surely work on humans: “I remember watching a video with my husband at Horse World – a local charity that rescues horses, ponies and donkeys and rehabilitates them – and it showed a horse receiving physiotherapy however the work was clearly Bowen as my husband announced to the entire audience, “that’s not physio, that’s Bowen!”.

 
With two BA’s and a Master’s degree, Sandra is also qualified in Level 3 Holistic Therapy and recently qualified as an Osteopath at Oxford Brookes University, leaving with a first class honours degree, setting her up nicely to be well versed in not only Bowen, but in osteopathy, cranial osteopathy, kinesio taping, reflexology, and holistic massages.
Whilst Sandra is equipped with various therapies, Bowen is her go-to therapy, especially for pelvic tensions, admitting that it usually re-aligns the area ready for subsequent work: “it can be quite amazing to see a client with a sacral-iliac restriction get off the couch with a reduction in their pain and improvement in their posture”. She’s so much of a fan she’s even argued over it with lecturers: “I had quite a debate with one of my osteopathic lecturers about how much work you have to do osteopathically to improve a pelvic or sacral torsion and how much easier it is with Bowen – the class was in stiches but I think I converted a few of them to this ‘wacky’ therapy called Bowen!”

Sandra Harris
Whilst Bowen often gets the body responding fully after three or four treatments, Sandra’s been the cause of a couple of miracle moments since practising Bowen: “I’ve had clients with long standing shoulder problems which were corrected with one treatment.”

She’s not just practising it though, she’s receiving it for pelvic torsions due to a right-sided scoliosis which often causes her hip pain: “I’ve always found it a very relaxing experience and my hip feels much freer afterwards.” She’s also experienced the miracle moments Bowen provides herself following a regular treatment: “I went through a box of tissues at 2am with a stream of mucus lasting three hours. Although I was very tired the following day, for the week after I felt fantastic!”

 
Sandra is currently the owner, runner, and principal of Timeout Therapies, based in Stoke Gifford in Bristol, but is currently having a new home clinic built. She’s received some rather glowing reviews from her customers too:
“The service and environment is second to none. This I can only attribute to Sandra’s gentle, considerate and professional manner. Bowen is not just a job to Sandra it is a vocation. The whole experience has does wonders for my mental wellbeing and I would not be without my monthly Bowen sessions.”

 
“Each Bowen session is carried out with absolute professionalism with Sandra taking time to listen, discuss medical history and review progress between visits. The appointments are never rushed and are so relaxing you almost go to sleep.”

 
“I have a Bowen session every three to four weeks; I call Sandra my miracle worker because, to me, she is!”
