PaydayukFor most people, payday is probably the best day of the week. It is something to look forward to that gets you through the grind at the office and helps you cope when the boss is making you rethink your choice of careers. It is usually on a Friday, so the work week is up and you can enjoy some rest, relaxation and recreation of your choice. Most importantly, you get paid, so you have the means to do something fun, buy something cool or take that special someone out for dinner and a movie.

For some people, payday never comes soon enough. They have often spent their previous pay cheque too quickly or carelessly and end up in dire need of money for groceries and other essentials. Sometimes that drives them to payday lenders. These businesses offer a quick bit of cash even to people with bad credit. But, they expect it to be paid back with your next cheque and with a lot of interest. Type into a search engine ‘Paydayuk’ and it will bring up a list of lenders.

Avoiding this situation is not that hard to do, but it does take some responsible planning. Everyone should make a budget based on their weekly income and expenses. Your rent and car payment should be allotted first. A little basic math can help. Sum these big expenses, divide it by four and subtract it from your weekly income. Consider that money spent each week, even if it doesn’t come out of your account until the last day of the month. Next, figure in your weekly grocery bill, but allow a little leeway for the weeks when you need to pick up some items in bulk or in in case your favourite snack is on sale.

Once these essentials are taken care of, you can get a bit creative. If you and your mates head to the pub after payday on Friday, it is only fair to allow yourself enough money for your usual consumption and a bit more to buy a friend a drink or make a toast for someone’s birthday. Enough money for a fine dinner out to get you through the humdrum of the following work week is a good idea. How much can you set aside for a new shirt or tie to spruce up your work attire? And don’t forget you may have some special occasions coming up the following week. Your mother’s birthday might mean ten quid for a box of chocolates or your one year anniversary with your significant other might call for flowers or an even finer restaurant than the fish ‘n’ chip store down the street.

After these expenses are taken care of, what does your bank account look like? If it’s in the red, you probably have to go back to the beginning and start tightening up your budget. If you have a surplus, there are two main options. You can save it: invest in your retirement portfolio or save it for a rainy day. Or you can spend it: splurge on an extra night at the pub, buy a pair of shoes to make a big upgrade to your wardrobe, or look into some big entertainment to look forward to.


Perhaps you want to see Mumford & Sons at T in the Park or want to put down some money on a winter getaway to Ibiza. Whatever it is, that extra money left over from payday is your reward for wise budgeting. So make the most of it. An unexpected expense may come up that knocks the surplus off your ledger and means a couple of weeks where payday just doesn’t come soon enough!

Is Natox Cream Going To Be a Success For My Friend’s Skin?

natox creamDo you remember the days where all you care about is how you will reduce the puffiness of your eye bags and not how to make your fine lines be gone? Yes, admit it, it’s the missing part of your life right now just like many of us. Don’t worry, as have been said you’re not alone, we are too many suffering from ageing. Obviously, we cannot escape ageing  Fortunately, in our world today, there are so many inventions and discovery that can control and slow down the process of ageing.

When I was younger, I already have fine lines in my under eye.  I think they are hereditary because my father sides have those at their young age. My lines are not so visible when I was in college, but now, I could totally see them because they are getting deeper; not to mention my eye bags are getting puffier. The main reasons are I’m getting old, I am exposed to pollution, stress, etc. and I don’t sleep early. I tried different natural beauty regime like tea bags, cucumber, honey, white egg and ice cubes. They somehow worked but not quite intense. If you also used natural beauty regime, you will also know that applying and preparing is so time consuming, the reason why I quit.  I also used beauty creams that have anti-aging components. I did product hopping as there are products that gave my skin smooth result but damaging it at the same time because of its peeling effect. There are also products that I am not satisfied of. My recent discovery now is

A friend of mine, who is also a skin conscious and latest when it comes to skin technology, told me of Natox.  She told me a day ago that natox cream is the latest discovery in fighting skin ageing and that we should try it. By the way, she is a front desk officer the reason why she needs to look fresh and young all day and the rest of her career. Like me, she is also sourcing out different methods and ways on how to fight aging because as much as possible we do not want to undergo Botox in the future.

If you are thinking my friend is a vain, no she is not. She just wants to take care of her skin because that is her advantage in the hospitality industry. Besides, our face is our forefront. If you have a dull face, people will see you as careless and a person who doesn’t care, but, if you’re skin is glowing and fresh people will see you as responsible, blissful and beautiful. She told me she will start using natox face cream after she emptied her current. If the result of her newly discovered is positive, she will have me use it.

Fine lines and eye bags are huge failure in your skin that keeps on getting back if you don’t regularly do your beauty regime. So, never stop taking care of your skin and body because it’s your asset.

Identity Theft Risks

Unfortunately, identity theft is a growing problem in the world today. You probably know at least one person who has had his or her identity stolen. Fortunately, the good news is that there are things you can do to increase your ID fraud protection. Here are a couple tips to help you out from

Be Careful with Online Transactions
Using your credit card online is incredibly convenient, but that convenience comes at a price. If the site you are purchasing from is not trustworthy, you could end up giving your credit card number away to ID thieves.

One of the best things you can do to protect yourself online is to make absolutely certain that you only buy from websites with a good reputation. Purchasing items from websites without a solid reputation is asking for trouble.

How can you tell if the website you want to order from is trustworthy? One of the best ways to evaluate the reputation of a website is to look at online reviews. If you see reports of fraud or other forms of misconduct, it might be a good idea for you to steer clear.

Beware Giving out Personal Information over the Phone
A lot of identity thieves try to trick people into giving them valuable personal information online by pretending to be bank or credit card company employees. Don’t ever feel obligated to give out valuable personal information over the phone. Banks and credit card companies are aware of the tactics used by identity thieves, and they will not call you up and request that you confirm the accuracy of the personal information you gave them over the phone.

Kanye West Returns to Twitter

Well, that was fast.

Just a day after Kanye West announced he was leaving Twitter, writing “BE BACK SOON” on his page, the loquacious rapper was back on the social networking site Friday with a message for his followers.

So, what made him renig on his self-imposed Twitter silence so quickly? 

Kim Kardashian wears wedding gown, dishes on Kanye West and her dream ceremony

Kim Kardashian Talks Kanye West, In A Wedding dress

By Jocelyn Vena

Kim Kardashian certainly looks like she’s ready to walk down the aisle in the new issue of Tatler. And, she’s even imagined what her next wedding will look like. Spoiler alert: She pledges it’s going to be the exact opposite of the splashy one she had with ex, Kris Humphries.

“It had always been my dream to have a big wedding, and when people said that I’d made it over the top for the show, that was just me: I am over the top,” the reality starlet tells the November issue of Tatler, in which she wears a big, white wedding gown. “But the next time, I want to do it on an island with just my friends and family and that’s it.” Still, Kardashian is making no excuses for loving hard and being honest about it. The reality TV starlet is dishing all about her philosophies on romance, saying for her it’s always going to be all or nothing when it comes to giving her heart to someone.

“When I look back at interviews I gave [about previous boyfriends] saying, ‘We’re talking about marriage, etc.’ It’s embarrassing. And I really believed it at the time!” she said. “I’m such a hopeless romantic that I’ll always believe the next one is the one.”

Kanye West might want to take note. The two have been hot and heavy since the spring and this time, she pledges, it feels different than those other relationships before.

“It’s so nice to have a best friend in this game who understands everything you’re going through. Being with someone I’ve known for so many years is comforting. He’s been there through so many different stages of my life and before I was famous, so this relationship is a different thing entirely. It’s good to be aware that he definitely doesn’t want anything from me too, because he understands the business,” she said. “I can’t even think about being with anyone else than the man I’m with.”

Kanye West Quits Twitter (But He’ll Be Back)

Kanye West, TwitterTwitter;

Well, at least we still have Nicki Minaj to provide some Twitter excitement.

Rapper and at times notable tweeter Kanye West has opted to abandon Twitter, at least for a little while. 

Hollywood hits up Twitter about the Presidential Debate

Although maintaining over eight million followers (and, of course, following just one special person—his lady Kim Kardashian), Yeezy’s tweets have either been deleted or hidden.

Well, except for one, that is.

“BE BACK SOON,” he wrote, in shouty capitals. 

But where is he going? That question remains unanswered for now.

Are you sad or glad Kanye deserted Twitter? Let us know in the comments!

At least we still have Kim’s twitpics!

Kanye West had ‘no intentions’ of bringing girlfriend Kim Kardashian to Paris …


Confidenti@l has learned exclusively that Kanye West had “no intentions” of bringing reality star girlfriend Kim Kardashian to Paris Fashion Week. “He didn’t think it was good for his reputation,” a Kanye spy tells us. “He didn’t want to hurt her feelings.”


The rapper turned fashion designer choose not to show his fashion collection this season, after his two previous Paris shows were bashed by critics. But he RSVP’d without a plus one to numerous shows weeks before telling Kim he was even going.

What did she say? Kanye West gets an earful from model Anne V in Paris.

Despite his inability to handle criticism, West is expected to be back in Paris in March to show his own fashion line, sources said. For now, though, he is palling around with some of Europe’s most famous designers, including Peter Dundas of Pucci, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, and Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel. And Kanye may adore Kim, but sources close to the rapper say “he’s uncomfortable bringing her” and “wants to be taken seriously.”


Meanwhile, Kim was busy filming her reality show in Miami with other members of the Kardashian Klan. She wore yet another outfit entirely too small for her generous curves when she arrived at the Webster Hotel in Miami Beach for lunch Tuesday.

Kanye West’s Infatuation With Kim Kardashian Is Rumored To Be Fizzling!

What the what!?!

Is the great love of Kimye floundering!?!

According to sources in Page Six, Kanye West is tiring of the press that’s constantly surrounding his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

While she’s busy filming in Miami, he’s rubbin’ elbows with the fashion elite in Paris.

But if you ask a family friend, they swear up and down that:

Kanye West Sued For Sampling Songs On ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’

A New York label is suing Kanye West, claiming the Grammy-winning rapper illegally used portions of a 1969 song by New Orleans legend Eddie Bo on his No. 1 2010 album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In its complaint, TufAmerica says two tracks on “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” — “Who Will Survive in America?” and “Lost in the World” — include a bit of “Hook and Sling, Part 1″ by Eddie Bo, which TufAmerica says it bought the rights to more than 15 years ago.

TufAmerica claims West’s label Roc-A-Fella paid a license fee of $62,500, but “failed and refused to enter into written license agreements that accounted for their multiple other uses of [‘Hook and Sling’].” The label is seeking undisclosed damages for copyright infringement.

In 2010, Kanye West was sued by musician Vincent Peters over a copyright dispute regarding similarities between West’s “Stronger” and a song Peters had sent West’s business associate in 2006. West’s legal counsel referenced the works of philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, whose maxim “that which does not kill us makes us stronger” is quoted in the song, and the court ruled in the rappers’ favor.

TufAmerica is the same label that filed a copyright-infringement lawsuit against the Beastie Boys earlier this year, the day before band member Adam Yauch died of cancer. That lawsuit claimed the Beasties’ 1980s albums “License to Ill” and “Paul’s Boutiquet” illicitly sampled from two Trouble Funk songs TufAmerica administers.

  • ‘People Look At Me … Like I’m Hitler’

    Kanye’s latest gone-too-far remark? “I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m (expletive) insane, like I’m Hitler,” he said while performing at The Big Chill concert in the UK on August 6. “One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”

    We’re not positive, but we’re pretty sure referencing Adolf Hitler isn’t the way to get emmore/em people to understand you.

  • ‘Yo Taylor, I’m Really Happy For You, And I’mma Let You Finish…”

    It was the VMA acceptance speech heard ’round the world — and it wasn’t even by the intended recipient. When Taylor Swift won the 2009 VMA for Best Female Video, it was only a matter of seconds before Kanye West jumped up on stage to declare Beyonce the real winner in his eyes.

  • ‘But Beyonce Had One Of The Best Videos Of All Time!’

    The defeated look on Swift’s face and Beyonce’s embarrassed/confused reaction was all caught on live TV during the MTV telecast.

  • Going Rogue

    When producers booked Kanye as a celebrity guest for a Hurricane Katrina Relief telethon, they had no idea he would use the opportunity to diss President Bush. But he did, going so far as to say, “George Bush hates black people.” In November 2010, a href=”” target=”_hplink”Bush revealed in an NBC interview/a that West’s remark was the worst moment of his presidency.

  • Dissing The President

    It’s a cringe-worthy moment, for sure, but Mike Myer’s on-camera uncomfortableness during West’s tirade tops it all.

  • Kanye vs. Matt Lauer

    In November 2010, West sat down with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” to discuss a href=”” target=”_hplink”Bush’s reaction to his remarks during the Hurricane Katrina telethon/a. While West carefully chose his words, he turned an ordinary interview into a quasi-feud with Lauer when he brought up his VMA outburst.

    “Yo I really wonder if Matt Lauer thought that s*** was cool to play the “MTV” clip when I was speaking about Bush?” a href=”!/KanyeWest” target=”_hplink”West tweeted/a.

    West cancelled his “Today Show” performance after the fallout from the interview.

  • Sore Loser

    Kanye West was all smiles before the 2007 VMAs and appeared onstage with fellow rapper 50 Cent (above). But after being nominated for five Moon Men and walking away with empty-handed, West was quite vocal about his disappointment, reportedly yelling backstage that he would “a href=”” target=”_hplink”never return to MTV./a”

  • Caught On Tape

    …And that backstage outburst was caught on tape. Yikes.

  • Not Helping The Cause

    While performing at a 2005 Live 8 concert in Philadelphia, Kanye a href=”,28804,1922188_1922187_1923051,00.html” target=”_hplink”reportedly referenced AIDS as a “man-made disease”/a that was “placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panthers.”

  • Blame It On The Alcohol

    When Kanye lost the Best Video award to Justice at the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards, he decided to voice his opinion on the matter. Instead of taking the news of his loss quietly, West jumped up on stage to spew a profanity-filled tirade about how his video for “Touch The Sky” should have won instead.

    West later blamed his outburst on booze. “I had a little sippy sippy,” a href=”” target=”_hplink”he told MTV UK/a, adding he planned to continue drinking after the show.
