Here’s How To Make Your Shoes Look Swanky

Women love buying shoes for no reason at all and they end up having many pairs that they don’t wear. Instead of having loads of shoes that you can’t wear maybe because they look to plain and boring, don’t throw them out yet I have a solution for you.

The solution is to make your old shoes look new, better, swanky and just maybe you can resell them for a better price. Did I mention that this tutorials are for nearly all types of shoes? because it is.

All you need is studs, glue, glitter, fabric, lace, string, spray paint, tape, ropes, Pins, earrings, beads and anything you may want. Before you brush me off, just take a moment and read through this article and see what the  above mentioned things have to do with revamping old shoes.

Flats – A pair of old or plain flats can get a new lease of life simply by adding a piece of jewellery on it. If the shoe is made of fabric you can use a broach to give it a new look or you can also use stick on earrings for the same purpose for shoes made out of leather or suede.

 Heels – You can use glue and glitter, studs or beads to create a new look for the shoe. Apply the glue then spread the glitter around an area of the shoe that you prefer say the bottom of the heel or at the tip- toe. You can also poke holes all round and use a coloured string all round. You can also use bling to make your shoe look more appealing. Adding a bracelet or necklace will give it a much needed effect.

Why Twitter is paying for your cell phone number

Twitter wants to gain a bigger presence in the lives of consumers, and so from today it’s going behind the scenes of how we connect to our smartphone apps. The most obvious route? Our phone numbers.

On Wednesday it launched a new mobile platform for developers called Fabric, and a core feature called Digits where Twitter foots the bill to send costly registration texts.

That seems generous of Twitter, but there’s a catch: Twitter gets to keep those phone numbers too, and store them on its servers.

It can then use them to enhance its mobile advertising network MoPub. Phone numbers give Twitter a better read on who app users are, to better target them with ads (assuming developers also install MoPub, which Twitter owns and offers them access for free).

Most consumers won’t know about Digits because it will work entirely in the back-end. In fact you may never see the name Twitter when you give the company your number, beyond some tiny, gray text at the bottom of the registration screen that says Digits is “powered by Twitter.”
