Top Fashion Trend for the Skiing Holidays

Skiing holidays is almost here and fashion designers are gearing up in time for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games (to be held in Vancouver).   Top trend forecast for skiers include longer and baggier jackets, zippers, plaids, and of course loud colors.
And just because you are not an athlete or a skier doesn’t mean you can’t follow the trend.  Ski jackets is a must to beat the cold weather in style and Ralph Lauren has a really cool ski gear collection such as the Racer Jacket in red, blue, black and yellow.
Marks and Spencer introduces a breatheable vest that uses the Merino wool thermal base layer system.  This natural elastic wool is odour- and perspiration-resistant and offers mobility and comfort.

Don’t forget these essential gears:  wool sweater, turtleneck, ski socks, thermal ong johns, neckwarmer, gloves, wool hat, boots and goggles.  Before buying your gear, make sure that you are comfortable to wear it and that it can provide you with sufficient warmth and protection on the slopes.

Sports apparel and gear that are made out of eco-friendly materials are also in for 2010.  From boots to ski suits, choose the ones that are environmentally-friendly and you’ll never go wrong.

Tips on Buying Golf Equipment and Accessories

If you are a golf player or a golf enthusiast, here are some tip on buying equipment and accessories:


Clubs are the most important equipment in Golf so you want to make sure that you will be using the right tools for your game. Golf clubs come in varying shapes, sizes and functionality. Drivers, Woods, Irons, Wedges, and Putters are used for different situations and strategies. If you are a beginner, here are some tips on which golf club you need.

Golf Balls.
The branded ones are considered to be the best quality golf balls but they’re also the most expensive. If you are a beginner, second golf balls will save you money.

Golfer shoes are made in a distinct way to provide comfort and support for golfers. When choosing shoes, it is very important to find the right fit so you can walk your course and deliver your swings with ease. Here is a guide on buying golf shoes.


Gloves are essential for a steady grip so you can deliver your swing perfectly. Here is a golf website to help you compare prices of gloves and other golf equipment from different shops online.

How to Save Costs from Your Cable TV Subscription

Is it possible to save money from Cable TV costs without giving up your subscription completely? Here are some tips:


1. Compare prices. Even when one offer seems great, check out what other packages are available from at least two or three cable service providers.

2. Get a package deal. Many cable operators offer bundled services. For instance, internet and telephone services may be included as well. Check the price for their combo deal and see if you can save more money.

3. Check out Satellite TV companies. Don’t forget to see what satellite TV companies since they usually offer cheaper deals.

4. Subscribe to a lower cable plan. Do you really need more than 100 channels on your TV? Choose the plan that not only fits your budget but your lifestyle too. Make sure that the channels included in the package are the ones you really watch.

5. Cut back pay-per-view and video on demand services. Pay-per-view costs can really add up on your monthly bill so this is where you want to make some adjustments.

6. Find cheaper viewing alternatives. You can actually watch movies and sitcom episodes from the internet at a much cheaper cost.

7. Ask your cable operator for a discount. It is always worth the try to call the cable company and ask if they can give you a cheaper flat rate. Do your research and point out what other providers offer. If you have been a good paying customer, the company may grant your request.
