We have to stop selling ourselves short.

If a man really likes you, values you and wants you to be his woman, he will put in the extra effort to build a connection with you. He will pick up the phone, instead of relying on texting as his sole means of communicating. He will court you. He will support you, he will compliment you and he will go out of his way to keep a smile on your face.

That is the BARE minimum you should want out of a man when dating. The problem with women not getting what they want out of relationships, normally lies in the fact that they are not exactly sure what they want to begin with. If you aren’t specific and honest with yourself when it comes to the expectations you have from the guys that you date, you are liable to settle for anything.

Lastly, it’s important to remember that refusing to settle doesn’t exactly mean that you will be single forever. It means that you have the patience to wait for what you truly deserve.

While on instagram, I saw that you took a trip for your birthday and you had on a white swimsuit that was to die for! If you don’t mind me asking, who is the designer and where can I get one. You looked absolutely fabulous in it!

Hi Asia, Thank you!  It was the Eagle Shadows Bikini by One Teaspoon.

Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cents Coins

This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially,  the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that  they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.

the funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best. 

This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.

Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.

You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.

A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.

Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.
