Milan Kordestani is a top equestrian rider, and he is also the founder of Milan Farms. As the founder of the company, he got the inspiration for the concept as a result of his horse riding experience from his childhood in London, England. At the age of 10, he was thrown off a horse, but he reacted by getting back up from the experience. He began working with racehorses, winning 3 different titles at horse shows.

The company aims to be transparent when they are working with animals, and seeks to provide a pure and honest option for their customers whom have a wide variety of needs.
Safron widely known as being one of the most expensive spices on the earth. The reason is that Saffron is such a difficult spice to grow in only the proper growing conditions such as rich environment and warm climate.

I think there is nothing that can be compared to getting us through the week like a fun guessing game. Lime Crime posted an update on the new products which the brands are set to launch on April 24, and there is an overdrive of speculation that they will be fun. For most there hope is that the new product is the next iteration of the Venus eyeshadow palette. Is there a chance that we will be witnessing the upcoming birth of Venus 3?
That’s an obvious thing, because of the feature of a palette on the update, the palette is seen floating in the sun rays, that in fact, means that it’s a palette. It’s expected to be the best when compared with previous versions of the brands like the Venus, Venus II, and Venus XL. The component that makes up the palette are vibrant and versatile and as applied its super silky. Let’s have a look at some of the previous launch of Lime Crime.
What someone should expect from the palette is a mash of Botticelli’s painting with a touch of a rebellion of the early 90s. The palette is made of nude sea colors that are of 8 different shades. The shades are rust red, unconventional neutrals, brick brown, and burgundy. To the liking of the person, the eyeshadow recklessly pigmented will be worn alone, or match it flawlessly to get the new look, painterly finish. The box has an eye-catching kitschy artwork.
The palette is made of eight rebelliously shades that are pigmented for the user that needs to take make up to the next level. For people that want the banging eyeshadow trends the VENUS II will have the user wielding the makeup brush. The palette is safely stored in a beautiful marbled box that on the outside it has kitschy artwork.
The Venus XL changed the whole thing when lime water first launched it. Because it consists of 18 long-wearing shades, designed for the eye, it’s the one swipe coverage, for the cheek and face, and four unique finishes. The packaging is a beautiful mirrored gilded box.
As the calendar moves closer to the warm summer months, the United States congressional races ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, are already heating up. End Citizens United is a progressive based support system for candidates that are either walking away from corporately slanted funding, or at the very least advocating for campaign finance reform.
The Washington D.C. based organization is now in its third year, formed to endorse candidates who reject special interest group manipulation of legislators. End Citizens United takes its name as a counterpunch against Citizens United. The organization blossomed as a result of a single court ruling in 2010.
Supporters contend that the Citizens United vs. FEC decision was wrong, and opened the floodgates of what they refer to as dark money to flood unbridled into the nation’s political process. ECU president Tiffany Muller and supporters believe that too many politicians accept massive campaign donations from the nefarious sources.
Because of the influence of this funding, they end up legislating with an allegiance to these massive interest groups instead of in the best interest of the local constituents. The progressive organization believes it to be at the core of corrupt politics in Washington D.C. and is fighting to push candidates who denounce the old ways into office.
One of their most visible candidates, Beto O’Rourke is beginning to make headway against former Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz in Texas. O’Rourke has served six years representing the 16th congressional district in Texas and has his eyes on the state’s senatorial seat come November.
Another big target for the campaign reform march is aimed at soon-to-retire Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Randy Bryce is now trying to accomplish what many felt was impossible. Bryce, a former military veteran and ironworker, has outraised his competition by nearly $2 million just in the first quarter of 2018.
Collectively, ECU hopes to generate over $35 million for candidates they endorse. All of his funding has come even though he has denounced any stream of donations from special interest groups. There target is what they call the “Big Money 20“, deemed the biggest abusers of special interest campaign contributions.
Early last month the door for Bryce swung wide open with Ryan’s announcement he would not be seeking reelection. The objective of the Democratic Party is to ride a blue wave into November in an attempt to secure control of both houses of Congress.
While wave of Democratic congressional control is also the goal of every End Citizens United supporter, they want that wave to be devoid of the campaign money they deem compromises elected officials’ ability to legislate with integrity. End Citizens United is working to propel the blue wave, but without the need for dark money contributions.

To-Do lists are helpful, if only we can get through them. Luckily, I came across some helpful tips to ensure you can effectively conceive and excecute your list each and every time.
- Make it exhaustive
The best way to concentrate on tasks at hand, is to create an exhaustive list of everything you have to do.
- Make it in Advanced
Many spend the early morning of their day preparng their list of to-do, instead, do it before bed or the night before. That way you can use the early morning to get a head start on your tasks versus still contemplating what they are.
- One Centralized List
Over time we tend to collect different lists across different platforms or mediums. The key is to centralized so you’re less worried about where a task was documented or let it slip all together.
- Keep Time In Mind
With each item is good to have an indication of when it will be started or completed. Why not also include and estimation on how long it will take to finish, this will work wonders for the next tip.
- Keep Priorities In Check
Prioritize your list based on time attributes to improve efficiency. For example, why not start with the most difficult or start that long-term project first, you don’t have to finish, but at least it’s atarted.
- Always Re-evaluate Your List
Stay vigilant on what items you’ve completed, it helps to encourage you, but also be away of items that no longer need to be on the list, which can help speed along the process.
- Delegate When You Can
Self-explanatory, but an important one, especially if you have a team to work with.
- Stay Aware of Small Detials and The Grand Scheme
With larger tasks broken into smaller ones, be flexible in your perspective while going through your list.
- Do Similar Tasks One After The Next
Batch process can help you move through your list quickly, for example, if you have a bunch of calls to make, try doing them all in sequence.
- How Much Energy Is Required
Some tasks require a little more energy than others, tag tasks with a low, medium and high energy scale grade to better focus on the high at the beginning of the day and low towards the end.
Chris affirms that when it time comes to invest in your retirement, It’s always best to start in your youth. Here is an example to show how starting in your youth or starting later can affect your investment when it comes to your retirement. Madison began investing early and earning an interest of $225,000. This is more than another investor named Cooper who does not have that much to spend during his retirement. Those who begin to invest late in life are often riddled with how they will invest their money in the present and future. When you start investing early, you have a great advantage because of when you began. Well-informed investors understand the benefits of investing early.
Is always best to hear from a well-seasoned advisor. Chris Linkas is the Managing Director and European Head of Credit with a London based investment firm and is frequently asked about the best time to start investing in one’s future. He stated that the earlier you begin planning for retirement, the sooner you will begin to see the potential of your ROI(Return on Investment). The best way to explain the correlation between early planning and compound interest is with another example using Madison. The mid 20-year-old Madison invests around $2,000 annually over 10 years in her 401k that is matched by her company, with a 10% interest growth. The earlier you begin investing, the less stress you will endure and the more financially stabled you will be in the future (https://www.discogs.com/artist/2617983-Chris-Linkas). Early investing can play a part in how you will approach your finances in the future and can lead to making less irresponsible mistakes.
