The Benefits of Life Long Healthy Eating

Posted by on Feb 9, 2016

We all know that we should eat five portions of fruits and vegetables every day, and that eating an apple is better for your waistline than reaching for another cheeseburger. But the health benefits and ramifications of healthy eating are much more wide reaching than simply the effect on weight and BMI: eating a healthy and balanced diet in the long term can mean that you live longer and that you are healthier, more energized, and happier. Fight of Illness Eating an unhealthy and fat rich diet can be a huge risk factor in leading to chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity and heart disease. All of these illnesses can be life shortening, and they all have devastating and uncomfortable side effects too.  If you miss out on too much of the protein, vitamins and minerals that your body needs, your muscle mass will decrease as your fat stores increase, meaning that your body won’t have the strength that it needs to fight off common illnesses. A recent study conducted by researchers in China on a huge target group of 6,000 women...

Gigantic Watermelon Slicer Tested

Posted by on Jul 3, 2015

BS TESTS has been awfully quiet until this most recent injustice awakened the Bull into a snarling mess of disappointment. This is a Watermelon Slicer that was purchased at Sam’s Club last summer and was never used until recently.  Currently it is not available and hopefully that will save you from making the mistake of throwing away ten plus dollars. First, the instructions suggest cutting both ends of the melon.  I guess without the old watermelon cutting knife that seem to work just fine, step one would not be possible.  This may also require a cutting board and lots of paper towels.  The flatter the end cut, we have learned the better it works.   Step 2: Place it on its circular juice catching tray, which oddly has a whole in the center so that the maximum amount of sticky juice squirts through it, onto your counter top. Step 3: Press the blades on top of the cut melon and push with as much force as you can humanly muster.  This may not be enough.  I can assure you this is...

Convert a Bland Wall Into a Stunning Design Feature

Convert a Bland Wall Into a Stunning Design Feature

Sep 30, 2015

Just because a new home comes with fresh white walls doesn’t mean they have to stay that way. A statement wall can pull a design together, add personality, and make furniture and accessories pop. Creating an eye-catching feature can be simple, starting with a wall to highlight. Whether you choose to make a statement with a bold, bright wall color or an exotic, textured wallpaper, the key is to balance it with other design elements in the room. Choose a Focal Point — Decide what aspect of the room you would like to draw attention to. Fireplaces, large furniture pieces and artwork are popular focal points. If your room doesn’t lend itself to having a statement wall, highlight existing features like a small office nook or an inset wall. Pick a Bold Color or Pattern — Choose a bright color, interesting texture or striking pattern for your statement wall. Pick up a color from the furniture or textiles already in the room or go with a contrasting color to stand out more. Place Furniture for Maximum Impact — Arrange pieces of furniture to draw attention to your statement wall. For example, two light-colored occasional chairs on opposite sides of a darkly painted wall attract the eye and create a focal point, particularly when they’re coupled with pops of color in pillows, lamps and art. Add Accents — Finish off a room’s design by carefully placing accessories that highlight your statement wall. This is the perfect opportunity to integrate your personality into your home. Show off your favorite artwork, family heirlooms or travel...

Tribble Reese Takes Over Burn Social Club to Redefine Atlanta Nightlife

Tribble Reese Takes Over Burn Social Club to Redefine Atlanta Nightlife

Sep 3, 2015

Burn Social Club is pleased to announce that celebrated personality Tribble Reese has come on board as managing partner. While Burn Social Club has been thriving since opening earlier this summer, Tribble saw the opportunity to take the venue a step further to revolutionize the Atlanta nightlife scene. Keeping with the fiery ambiance, Burn will continue to set the stage for live music and renowned DJs with the latest LED lighting and state of the art sound for crowds to dance the night away on the massive dance floor or relax in plush VIPS seating lounge. Burn will also continue to feature its light fare menu along with master bartender Thomas McGuire’s world class craft cocktail program. Targeting a younger, hipper vibe, Tribble will attract Buckhead’s hot, sexy and cool elite to Burn by featuring illustrious relaunch parties beginning Friday, Sept. 11th at 8pm and running every weekend in September. “When I was approached about coming on board to Burn, I was very intrigued as I had a radical vision of how I could transform this concept into something Atlanta has never seen before,” said Burn managing partner Tribble Reese. “Burn has all of the appeal of the lights and music of a club but you don’t necessarily need to be VIP to experience the party we are going to throw.” Tribble Reese is a well-rounded jack-of-all trades, up and comer in the entertainment industry. Making a name for himself on CMT’s Sweet Home Alabama and Bravo’s New Atlanta, Tribble Reese is a model, actor and born entertainer. An avid traveler and former football star, he has been named as Jezebel Magazine’s Most Beautiful and Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Most Eligible Bachelor as well as plenty of red carpet appearances and most recently seen in Bravo’s Clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live. Born in Atlanta, raised in Alabama, schooled in South Carolina, and now making a name for himself where it all began, Tribble Reese is thriving under the bright lights as he takes Atlanta and the world by storm. Burn Social Club is located in the heart of Buckhead at Andrews Entertainment District, a world class destination with exceptional dining, entertainment, and nightlife.
