Doing More In Two Decades Than Most Do In There Life, Yeonmi Park- Activist, Author, Young Adult

“In Order to Live : A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom” is a must read book by Yeonmi Park at It is currently listed on Amazon’s best of the month, book picks. She talks about what live was like growing up in North Korea, where fear was a normal feeling and freedom fell short of being defined and failed to exist. It is a very well written book by someone who is not just writing a book but, she was the story. It is important that we give her kudos for her valiant ability to get out with Yeonmi Park at family and rise above. This book is about doing something so difficult that most could not even imagine making the same decisions, yet alone as a child. It was released at the end of September in hardcover.

Pick up the book and stare into the eyes on the cover of the book. In one glance you will see a child and through her eyes you can see a powerhouse of strength, endurance and world changing, charisma. There is no denying that in this world two things tend to happen, the world either makes you or the world breaks you. The world has made, Yeonmi Park. That is not an assumption but a fact. When a child is so entrenched with anxiety that she believes she is being watched and heard by the dictator of North Korea. It is amazing that she was able to get past that and seek freedom. Yeonmi Park watched her mother get raped and she was sold. Tragedy a girl of 15 should not even know about.

She has endured so much, but the thing about Yeonmi is that her life is better for it. Yes that sounds like a crude statement but her misfortune is what is drilling a fire into her heart to fight and try and make this world a better place to live in.

Do Your London Vacation By Apartment!

Hotels aren’t your only option when vacationing in London; you may find that an apartment is a better fit. Apartment rental is fast out-pacing hotel accommodations for vacations, and it isn’t only because the costs are lower. Hotels are expensive, and there is no guarantee that those high rates will offer you good service. Often hotel rooms don’t live up to your expectations, and they are shabby and dirty. At hotels you are charged for every little item, and the prices for internet and that wet bar are scary, but there is another option in short-term apartment rentals.

Apartments are spacious, and the amenities are built in. They offer levels of privacy, comfort, cleanliness that just isn’t possible in hotel rental. Part of your vacation is eating at the fine London restaurants, but with an apartment you have the option of staying home, and preparing a special gourmet dinner in privacy. Preparing your own meals saves you even more money, and cuts down on cab and tube fares. The locations are convenient because short-term apartment rentals are available all over the city.

London has strategically located luxury apartments all over the city to fit any budget, and that pricey vacation becomes affordable for the entire family. The apartments come in all different sizes to accommodate any size group, and the services are equal or exceed hotel offerings. You can still get on sight seeing tours, and visit all the top attractions. With apartment rentals you can bring along your bicycles, and find yourself zooming beside the Thames for free. London offers a wide array of walking tours that are available to apartment renters at better rates than charged at the hotels.

Apartments are located in safe neighborhoods, and the security is tight for a worry free stay. The apartment rentals offer all the old world charm that is London in a warm and cozy atmosphere. Explore those famous museums, parks and shopping areas at your leisure, while strolling about like a native. Affordable luxury apartments fit for a family are available in the most attractive areas of London, Kensington, Chelsea, Convent Gardens, Westminster, and Mayfair are just a few of the prestigious neighborhoods where you can rent your own private and safe haven.

Renting in the same neighborhood as Queen Elizabeth, can’t be bad, and apartments are available within walking distance to Buckingham Palace. Consider a London apartment rental vacation this holiday, and enjoy the flowing Thames from your own window or balcony as you sip your tea.

Rooted In Diversity: Jaime Garcia Dias

Rio de Janeiro is a huge, sprawling metropolis with a massive statue of Christ overseeing the poor and the rich alike. From the “ghetto” conditions of Cuidad De Deus, the City of God–about which some profound literature and film have been devoted–to the downtown rich glitz playing host to Carnivale every year, Rio has a diversity unlike any other in the world. Born in that diversity seventy years into the twentieth century, Jaime Garcia Dias very soon translated the whirlwind of activity around him into some of the finest literature Brazil has ever seen, and even a popular video series on Vimeo.

Dias’ parents were very educated individuals, and that’s really saying something in Rio. There are very well-educated people that have a decent economic foothold in society. There are also those that come from a background without education, and continue thus throughout their lives. Because of the economic climate of Brazil in the seventies, when Dias was born, it’s almost a miracle he wasn’t one of the unfortunate uneducated statistics of the sprawling city. It is unthinkable that he would not have observed these elements of society growing up; and indeed his literature reflects the truth of the region. Perhaps this is a reason for its profound popularity.

Whatever the case, Dias’ educated upbringing as shown on LinkedIn, definitely had a hand in his writing. Dias’ father was a well-known writer already, and his mother an architect with some very well-liked projects to recommend her. With Rio and his parents shaping his psyche, Dias soon embarked on a literary quest, starting his first novel at the tender age of fifteen.

While many aspiring authors start writing young, Dias is one of the few who was able to do as much successfully. By the age of forty-five, he has managed to publish some twenty different novels on a variety of subject matter. And he didn’t stop at literature, either. Dias became an educator in 1995, teaching students out of high school how to write professionally. He soon became president of the same educational institution, and continues writing to this day. His most recent work is compiled from articles that were written weekly over the course of a year. The articles mainly described his upbringing and childhood in Rio, and the book compiling them was well-received.

It requires education and diversity to produce well-balanced literature which is enjoyable for a variety of readers. Dias has this diverse balance, and the education to not only translate his vision for readers everywhere, but to teach prospective writers how to do the same thing. There’s a reason Dias is instrumental to the Brazilian literature scene: his work demands it. Furthermore, being at his career’s height, Dias doubtless has many works to come and his CrunchBase continues to be updated with new career news about the man.

Telling the Whole Tale on a Wikipedia Page

Writers are people who have something to say. The art of writing is the art of communications. Writing can be both entertaining and informative depending upon the approach one chooses to take. For those who have a lot of knowledge about a particular subject, the written word can both inform and entertain. Wikipedia, the highly popular online encyclopedia provides a perfect venue for those who wish to write about a particular subject. Hopefully, all those with solid writing skills will create an account on the Wiki community and share what they know. If not, then no one else will be able to share in the knowledge they possess.

One of the most interesting aspects about how to make a Wikipedia page is that the online community provides a forum to write factual entries about virtually any subject. Be it a person, place, thing, event, work of art, or even concept in the abstract, Wikipedia probably will allow a page to be dedicated to it. As long as the page sticks to the facts and avoids critical analysis and editorializing, whatever is written onto the page is going to be allowed.

Writers who possess knowledge about a particular topic should seriously think about adding to the existing content on the site. If no content exists, then why not create that missing page. Again, it would be a shame if a writer held knowledge about a subject from others when sharing it is so easy. Upon creating a profile, all one has to do is use MediaWiki to write text or perform revisions, additions, and edits. Anyone who can use a basic word processor should be able to get a hang of MediaWiki.

Those who are not writers, but have a vested interest in seeing vital information find its way to Wikipedia should work with a company like Get Your Wiki. Get Your Wiki provides full-service writing, editing, and monitoring work of Wikipedia on behalf of clients. All work is done at a high degree of professionalism and within the rules of Wikipedia’s guidelines.

So, if the client wants to see a Wiki page contain several paragraphs of previously omitted information but cannot do the writing on his or her own, Get Your Wiki steps in. The information is provided to Get Your Wiki and solid work is then done on the page.

The end result is a page that is as comprehensive as possible. Is that not what an encyclopedia entry should embody?

Doe Deere Takes on Makeup Giants with Fun and Fantasy Palettes

It’s only been seven years, so it is still a rather young company. I’m talking about Lime Crime makeup; the colorful cosmetics company launched in October 2008 by young entrepreneur from Russia, Doe Deere.

It’s not easy surviving in the world of beauty when long established makeup giants like Revlon, Estee Lauder and others squeeze out the competition. To make it and actually thrive is quite the challenge, but then again, that’s what makes Doe Deere tick.

“Whatever I do — fashion, modeling, makeup — I do with vigor. I aim to be the best I can be because I want to create a brand I can be proud of, and products that inspire people and bring good energy into the world.”

Those quotes come from Doe Deere’s former blogazine. I miss her writings a lot, because I learned plenty from her vignettes about life, makeup and business.

Lime Crime makeup is not like the others and that is what makes the brand stand tall. Doe Deere has created a cosmetics line that goes beyond the pretty. Her sparkly eye shadows and “amped up” lipsticks are crazy colorful. She has carved out a niche that never existed, makeup of the moment for young women everywhere.

Lime Crime cosmetics are readily available online here. The makeup is also sold by retailers like Urban Outfitters and shops in Mexico, Brazil and Russia.

I think makeup should be fun say’s Deere on a storyexchange interview; I don’t think you have to wear makeup if you don’t want to, but I find that applying a few products can do a couple of good things. First, makeup is very freeing, allowing you to be you. Secondly, wearing cool, modern makeup can transform you from the inside out. For girls who often don’t feel like they belong, and trust me, we have all been there at some point in our lives, makeup matters.

Lime Crime is unique; these bold opaque shadows, liners and lipsticks are high quality. Probably Doe Deere’s most popular product are her Unicorn lipsticks which come in pretty purple tubes adorned with her signature unicorn design. These lipsticks rock! I’ll never forget buying my first Unicorn lipstick and wearing it so proudly. It was one of Doe Deere’s tamer shades, called Great Pink Planet (milkshake pink). For me, it was like creating a true doll’s face, so beautiful with my porcelain complexion.

I tend to love pink, so I also got obsessed with the Zodiac Glitter of Lime Crime makeup. I wear the shade Sagittarius a lot, so I keep buying pots and pots of it. My sister can’t get enough of their Grunge Palette, one of the most amazing shadow kits ever invented. Estee Lauder wishes they had come up with that idea. The Grunge Palette is full of cool colors like rusty reds, stone, shades like bruised fruit, as Doe Deere would describe the palette. The Grunge Palette is so popular, you’re only allowed one per customer.

I love Lime Crime makeup!

How Sergio Cortes Found Success As A Michael Jackson Impersonator

Sergio Cortes has been keeping the memory of Michael Jackson alive for many years. It all started when he was just a child singing and dancing to the hit songs in his home. He was just like other fans who wanted to sing along to the songs, dance to the music videos and step into the shoes of his childhood hero. It was a hobby that made him popular among his peers. The impersonating did not stop with his singing and dancing. Sergio even looks like Michael Jackson himself. It was hard to believe this was Sergio and not the King of Pop.

His life changed when a photographer asked for permission to snap and publish a photograph of Sergio in the local newspaper. The photographer wanted the world to see the man who closely resembled Michael Jackson. The publication gained him instant popularity from the media and other fans. Photographers even sold pictures of Sergio as authentic Michael Jackson pieces.

The attention Sergio Cortes received pushed him towards a career in the entertainment industry. Sergio Cortes did not start on this career until Michael Jackson passed away in 2009. He was invited by a management company to perform in a stage show as Michael Jackson. Sergio accepted the offer and started his career as a Michael Jackson impersonator. His rising popularity has created a large following of devoted fans. He has thousands of likes and comments from fans on his official Facebook page. He has even appeared on multiple television shows in Brazil. His appearance on the popular Spanish television program “Laura” has gained him a lot of attention from fans and other media outlets.

Sergio Cortes can be found performing concerts for fans all over the world. It is the perfect opportunity for loyal fans to hear their favorite Jackson songs performed live. The talent, passion and devotion of Sergio has earned him the title of the best Michael Jackson impersonator today. It should be noted that Sergio is not someone who wants to ride on the coattails of this late entertainer. He is just a longtime fan who wants to keep the memory of Michael in the hearts of all his fans.

Could Sergio Cortes Pass For MJ?

There are very many impersonators of Michael Jackson, but none of these has been as similar to him as Sergio. Raised and born in Barcelona, Sergio is a striking image of MJ. This is not only characterized by his way of dressing or dancing skills but also the physical mannerisms and appearances that are so alike to Jackson’s.
Sergio started impersonating MJ ever since he was a tiny boy. In the beginning, he did not strive to imitate Michael; he simply adored the way he made his moves and since he idolized him, started copying the moves. He nonetheless looked so much like MJ that crowds started drawing close to him wherever he went.
Sergio Cortes, the star we know of today, was born when a local reporter posted one of his videos and pictures on the internet. Sergio’s recordings became appraised almost right away, and he began getting all these requests to perform Michael Jackson’s songs in shows.
It was not till Sergio was a teenager that many people began showing up to watch him dance and sing just like MJ, that he realized he possessed a future in the show business. As he continued growing, he started learning about himself, how to make vocal notes as Michael’s as well as refining the dancing moves. Irrefutably, MJ made a big mark as an amazing entertainer. The moonwalk dancing technique is the best signature dancing move that characterizes Michael world over.
The innate ability for Sergio to perform just like Michael set him apart from the rest of impersonators in the world. Currently at the age of 44, Sergio has dance moves, vocal sounds and striking looks just like MJ’s that is very confusing.
There are many videos by Sergio Cortes on the internet that that display his incomparable skills in taking off Michael’s dancing moves and singing his widely known songs.

When he amalgamates the special effects, costumes, music and his dancing moves, he simply brings to live the king of pop on stage performing. These performances all the time leave the fans mesmerized.
Cortes currently resides and performs in Brazil and is a renowned celebrity there. His fans have embraced his work making him renowned in Brazil and South America. Most of these fans claim that Sergio is the splitting image of MJ and idolize and love him almost the same as they did the king of pop it is actually enthralling. He has acquired a universal following thanks to his top-notch performances. He keeps in touch with his fans via social media sites like Facebook, twitter, and Instagram, with slightly over 17,300 likes in his Facebook page.

Get Local, Get A Vacation Rental In London

Whether you are looking for a museum to admire, a place to dance the night away, or a beautiful park to stroll along–London is your one stop destination. There is no wonder why it is one of the most popular vacation destinations for tourists, raking in about 16.8 million visitors in 2013. The streets are a study in antithesis. Tradition is juxtaposed against modernity. Ravers, business people, artists, and families can all find something wonderful to do in London to satisfy one (if not all) of their interests. A vacation rental is the best way to immerse oneself in a truly local experience and get the most out of a trip.

London Vacation Rentals differ from hotels in several ways. Instead of booking a room like in a hotel, vacation rentals rent out a fully furnished house or apartment. These come with fully functional amenities including private bathrooms, kitchens, washers, dryers, televisions, and more depending on the property rented. Vacation rentals also offer extra space to stretch your legs after a day of exploring the Thames or shopping along in Mayfair. Another factor separating vacation rentals and hotels is the privacy one gets from having their own personal space. Much like hotels though, pricing is dependent on where and how long the stay is, but there are spaces for each price point from budget to luxury.

There are so many websites for a traveler to scout out that perfect vacation rental that it can easily become overwhelming. WorldEscape offers an easy and secure way to search for the right place to fit your needs. They ease the process by their well organized site which gives details about each of the hand-picked rental properties available. Making a decision on where to stay during a trip can make or break an experience. Each home or apartment is handpicked by the people at WorldEscape. Photos, a property description, a list of amenities, a neighbor guide, and a map feature all create an involved experience which allows you to really get a feel for the vacation rental before seeing it in person.

The reservation process for World Escape is online with a secure and safe payment process. You either book directly and get a confirmation of the booking immediately or you request to book the property and will receive an approval or disapproval within 24 hours. Once booked, you will be given the contact information for your personal greeter from WorldEscape who will meet you at the property and give you the keys. After that, London is your oyster.
