Something cooking: Vistaprint Business cards

It's hard to keep a blog when there is nothing to say. Today I've just finished off my business cards - well ordered them with Vistaprint. They have a few bad reviews on some review websites but they are cheap and since I'm a start-up I'll go with them first and upgrade later. Basically you get what you pay for.

I think the main thing is to read the small print and be very careful when you are confirming things at the checkout. Vistaprint tend to bundle a lot of other stationary. The final order screens are also confusing so be very careful in what you tick and don't tick.

Vistaprint’s special offers are great however do remember it's bait. I had a good offer via a flyer from Film Love. This was a fiver for 500 cards however it's available to everyone. I but decided to do my own design (in stead of chosing a template) which cost me a little more (they charge if you upload your own designs) and then there is the added cost of postage and delivery. Most places deliver in five working days however Vistaprint have different delivery times. Yes, that hits you at the order page.

I did a quick surf of other sites and found it was still very cheap. So till went along with it. Cheapest is twenty-one days, fourteen days, seven days, then three and finally next day. I opted for the fourteen days. I was thinking of taking twenty-one but though I'd spend more on a pint of beer so opted for fourteen. So do think about delivery times and the quality. You can upgrade on quality but it sort of defeats the points.

A decent batch of business cards will cost in the region of two hundred quid and Vista is doing it for a fiver - 500. I've seen the quality from my research around and it's very light cardboard. I am rather sheepish about getting it but then I do need business cards for networking and marketing purposes. No point forking out a lot of cash without having generated an income yet to cover it.

Growing Up Hip Hop Episode 6 Season Finale: A Question for Romeo- The Virgin Queen Angela or sexy Kristinia 'The Missing Kardashian Sister' DeBarges.

To my surprise I found this was the season finale, and I think due the lacklustre performance and lack of promotion by any of the investors or stars it may not be commissioned for a second season. Frankly when I found out this was the final episode in the series I thought it was an anti climax. Why? Well the cliffhangers were Angela's stalker who no one really cares about, and also Romeo driving away to have a threesome probably fake with Kristinia 'The missing Kardashian sister' DeBarge and her friend Ashley.
Oh well let's starts with my observations of this show. Will I be watching it again? I don't know. They even seem to having a reunion.

Def Jam and Phat Farm Founder Uncle Russell Gives Angela Simmons A Piece of Mind The show kicks off with Angela Simmons sprawled out on her virgin white bedsheets when Uncle Russ gives her a call for an update on the stalker situation. She tells him she’s made contact with the stalker.

Basketball Wives season 5 - Episode 4: It's all about Evelyn missing wife-headpuncher Chad and Tami seeking drama over what Shaunie said to Tasha Marbury. Suzie Ketcham says jaw surgery was to correct assault on her jaw used as punching bag by some unnamed ex of hers

This was show all about Evelyn 'Will-I-go-back-to-Chad' Lozada and Tami 'I'll-punch-you-in-the-face' Roman.  It's got to be the most boring Basketball Wives I've watched.  And it was so boring so I'll just cover some points and in no particular order. I hope it makes sense in some way?

UPDATE: NOTE: Tami confirms in her blog that her mother died at Tami's home surrounded by her family - that is Tami and her two daugthers who were with her when she died.

Evelyn continues to whines about Chad Johnson Ochocinco

Evelyn goes on and on about Chad Johnson Ochocinco till at some point I start to feel sorry for the man. This is too bad because I can't believe that I feel sorry for Chad Johnson Ochocinco. Never thought I would say this. POOR CHAD. Seriously, Poor Chad Johnson Ochocinco. I really do feel for him because it's like an nightmare that will never end. For him and for us. Evelyn too because she has that horrible gash on her forehead. No …

R&B Divas LA season 1 episode 3: Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Lil’ Mo, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson all go to Vegas, Chante Moore is all about female empowerment and self-marrage, Dawn Robinson reveals more about her hurtful and abusive marrage also struggles to have a child,Lil Mo and Chante Moore save the day singing at Boardway in the Hood.

This show is pleasant, honest and easy to watch. I think they have go the balance right in this case because I can see people like Chante Moore, Lil Mo, Michel'le and to some extent Dawn Robinson not standing for any behind the scenes rubbish - however time will tell since it's still early days.
These women are hungry  in a different way to the ones in R&B Diva's Atlanta. With the exception of Claudette Ortiz- these are very cast full of strong women and know their worth! I say that because Claudette Ortiz is the youngest by a good few years.

So given that the foolery that is Basketball Balls Miami will be starting with Tami, Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neil soon this is a good cool down show.

Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz bond over  'All we have being through' discussions.

It kicks off with Lil Mo, Dawn Robinson and Claudette Ortiz all discussing the monologues. Yada, yada, yada they keep on talking.
