Dark Curtains

If you are getting your bedroom ready, it is best to get either thick curtains or dark curtains. Thick curtains will not only block out the light but will also keep the room warm in winters because the space near a window can be freezing. Dark grey curtains, dark blue, and dark purple curtains can look really good in a room when mixed and matched with other colors, especially if everything else in the room is light-colored.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide can be very effective for killing bacteria in your mouth that may be causing bad breath and staining. However, you must be careful with the concentration of your hydrogen peroxide to avoid tooth sensitivity. Use a 1.5-3% solution as a mouthwash before brushing your teeth. You can also combine hydrogen peroxide with baking soda to create your own toothpaste. However, use the paste sparingly as it can damage your tooth enamel.

Advertise online

Often referred to as earning through a blog, this essentially means you’re putting up ads on your blog, generally through a middleman such as Google AdSense. For this to work, you need to ensure that you provide some value proposition through your blog so people will actually visit. 

Essentially, you're selling ad-space on your blog and you'll earn based on your blog's traffic. Make sure you pick a topic specific enough so it can stand out from the competitors, but for which you can carve out a large enough audience, too.

Continuous strip binding

If you’re going to regularly handle and wash the quilt, this method is your best bet because it adds 2 protective fabric layers that cover the quilt’s edges, instead of just one. The easiest to make is straight-of-grain binding. If your quilt’s edges are curved, it’s better to make bias binding instead.

Lateral Leg Raise

On a yoga mat, lie on one side of your body. Your forearm should be straight on the ground, and your fingertips pointing away from you. Your feet and legs should be on top of each other.

Raise the leg on top and make circles in the air with your feet. Try not to move your body while making circles in the air. Make 10 circles and switch sides. Make circles with the other leg and keep on switching sides after 10 reps on each side.

Offer a Sincere Compliment

Let's be honest - men and women, old and young, everyone loves a compliment. But it is not a cliché and an unoriginal one, but rather something authentic. Look at your date and see what you really like about it or something that catches your eye and comment on it. They will be happy secretly.

Be engaging

To keep a conversation going longer than just a word or two, make sure you're giving the other person enough material to go on. If you're only replying to them with phrases like "sure", or "that's cool", then you're making the other person do all of the conversational heavy lifting and not contributing very much yourself.

Try to ask open-ended questions (ones that need to be answered with more than a "yes" or "no"), and saying what you think rather than just nodding along.
