Hot Or Not – The App For Rating And Dating People

Hot Or Not – The App For Rating And Dating People


Do you remember Hot or Not? The rating website, that started it all had come out with a new iPhone app released a few years ago, which allowed you to rate people. Hot or Not allows you to pass judgment on other people on a score of 1 to 10. Most of the features are free, but you can upgrade to a monthly subscription in return for some virtual gifts and ratings. If all you’re interested in is meeting some singles in your city, I’d say you stick to the free version.

Hot or Not is a social networking dating app from Or Not Limited, available for Android and iTunes in the social networking category. You can get to know interesting people and chat with them, get scores on how hot you are, like Facebook friends and so on.

However, to access the app, you need to use a third party website such as Twitter or Facebook so that your social profile gets linked to the Hot or Not website. You can rate anybody but there is a limit to the number of ratings that a member can give in a day. I guess people like it, as it is fun to go through when you are bored.

Here’s how it works – You use Facebook to help you find friends who are interested in dating someone. Just go through the singles’ profiles on Facebook and ‘like’ them if you wish. People take a look at your picture and vote whether you are hot or not. If you also think they are hot, you can get introduced, chat, have fun and even meet each other – it’s up to you to take it further.

Teenagers above 18 can upload their photographs on this site and ask people to rate them – am I hot or not? They can then log back and get an ego boost or a slam. You’ll need to keep in mind that everyone can see your ratings, both friends and enemies.

Say, you want to meet an 18 year old from San Jose who likes windsurfing, you can find one. You just send a request saying ‘I’d like to meet you’ and if he/she is interested, you set up a date. The Café feature allows you to play with either friends or strangers and view the ratings they have given for other photographs. It’s a global party and you can meet anyone living in your area. It’s easy to view profile albums and check out the people nearby. Get to know who has visited you and if there are any mutual attractions.

It’s a great app, so what’s not to like in it, you might think.

Though the site can be fun, I’d recommend kids to stay out of it, as setting up meetings with strangers could end up ugly or downright dangerous. People on the site may not be what they claim to be. Of course, the submissions on the site go through moderators and there are normal people who are looking for a healthy relationship.

The bottom line is that you come out of the site losing your self-esteem or by pumping up your ego. If you are a 9 on Hot or Not, you feel good and if you are a 2, it’s time you got out.

6 Hot Furniture Trends You Need To Know About

6 Hot Furniture Trends You Need To Know About


Buying furniture is a big expense, so the last thing you want to do is invest in something that looks dated.  If you want to make the most out of your purchase, you’ve got to know what the hottest furniture trends are.

hot furniture trends you need 6 Hot Furniture Trends You Need To Know About

Here are 6 of them:

1.  Storage space that looks cool

Let’s face it — we’ve all got a ton of stuff!  If you’re like most people, you probably don’t know how you accumulated all of it, but you’ve got to find a place to put it.  Luckily, one of the hottest furniture trends of 2013 involves storing all of your stuff in a place that looks cool.

For example, there are plenty of great-looking bed frames that come with storage drawers at the bottom of them.  Or, you can turn your living room into a secret storage room by investing in ottomans that are hollowed out in the middle — perfect for stashing stuff so that no one sees any clutter!

2.  A bold dining set

No matter what kind of food you’re serving up, you need a cool place to eat it in.  Luckily, you don’t necessarily have to buy a giant dining set in order to be bold.  You can make just as much of a statement by investing in a dining room set that’s got a cool finish, or one that’s got wild curves instead of traditional corners.

3.  Patterns that exceed your imagination

Forget about classic solid colors!  If you want the trendiest furniture of 2013, you’ve got to embrace patterns.  And, you don’t have to settle for just one.  It’s no longer a faux pas to combine patterns, so see what catches your eye, then mix and match to create a décor that’s all your own!

4.  Cool white

If you’re looking for a way to calm down your space — like, for example, in your master bedroom — don’t go with patterns.  Instead, you can be just as trendy by indulging in bright white.  White is a natural symbol or purity and innocence, so it will instantly relax you.  And, as an added benefit, it makes rooms look light and airy — perfect for making your rooms appear larger than they really are!

5.  Mix and match your time periods

Before, you had to pick a décor — modern or antique.  Today, though, it’s perfectly acceptable to take advantage of both!  For example, put an antique end table next to your modern couch.  Just like the patterns, the mixing and matching you do will create a décor that perfectly represents your personality.

6.  Great deals

Even though the recession is getting smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror, many people are still hesitant to make big purchases — like, for example, buying a whole bunch of new furniture.  As a result, both traditional furniture stores and online merchants are offering some great deals.

Like what?

Buy online, and you may get free shipping.  Or, shop in person, and you may get to waive the delivery fee.  Just keep your eyes peeled, and you could get all of the furniture you need, at a price that’s much lower that you thought.

That’s a trend that we hope will never go out of style!

How To Make Hot Process Soap In A Crock Pot

How To Make Hot Process Soap In A Crock Pot


Oh the joys of soap making! Making soap is a lot of fun, especially if it’s being made to give away as gifts to friends and family. Making soap through the hot process method in a crock pot is a little different than the traditional method of soap making. So, how is hot process soap made using a crock pot? Well, read on to find out.

how hot process soap crock How To Make Hot Process Soap In A Crock Pot

Things Needed to Get Started – Some things needed to get started are a chemical mask, a deep crock pot, chemical resistant gloves, large stainless steel spoon, a cutting board and knife, soap mold, freezer paper, a silicone or plastic spatula, digital scale, stick blender, thermometer, plastic containers, and a plastic pitcher labeled “lye water”. Also, before making soap it’s a good idea to read about safety rules, protective clothing, and what to do if a spill occurs.

Find a Good Soap Recipe – Before beginning, find a good soap recipe to follow. This can be obtained from books at the library or even online. This should not be hard to find. Try picking a basic recipe that uses vegetable oils, rather than animal fats and water as the liquid as other options can be a bit more involved and advanced for people just starting out.

Weigh Ingredients – Using the digital scale, weigh out the vegetable oil in plastic containers and set aside. Now weigh out the water and lye. Make sure when doing this that the containers with lye are labeled, and that they are never used for food or anything to be consumed.

Mix Lye and Water – Turn on the hooded vent above the stove for this step. While standing under the vent with mask and gloves on, pour measured water into plastic pitcher. Then slowly pour lye into water and mix slowly using spoon. Always pour the lye into the water, never the other way around as a volcanic reaction may occur. Leave lye water sitting under vent for a few minutes to get rid of fumes.

Mix Oils and Lye Water – Plug in crock pot, add the hard oils to the pot, set the temperature to low, and allow to melt. Once melted add in other oils. Now slowly, still wearing mask and chemical resistant gloves, pour in the lye water. Using stick blender, blend until the product reaches “trace”. Trace is when the product thickens and leaves a “trace” when drizzled over the top of the product.

Time to Cook – Cook the caustic product in the crock pot on high. Depending on the oils used, cooking time will vary. Some take as little as thirty minutes while others may take an hour. While soap is cooking try lining soap mold with freezer paper and set aside. Try not to mix the soap too soon, allow soap to cook but keep an eye on it. Soap will begin to rise and fold in on itself. Once this happens give it a stir so it doesn’t come out of the pot. Once product begins to look like mashed potatoes this is a sign that the soap is probably done. At this point, it’s a good idea to do a zap test to see if lye in soap is deactivated. Take a little bit of the soap, rub between fingers, and touch it to the tip of the tongue. If it doesn’t sting then soap is ready, if it does sting then soap needs to be cooked longer.

Fragrance and Mold – Add fragrance. Check flash point of fragrance, temperature of soap should be at least ten degrees less than flash point. Pour into mold but work fast as hot process soap can harden up quick. The following day, remove from mold and cut into slices if loaf mold was used. Set on wire racks for one to two weeks to cure to allow water to evaporate from soap to make a harder bar.

Soap making is pretty simple once a person gets the technique down. It’s a lot of fun and people can get really creative with it using different scents, colors, and additives. Give it a try, and see what can be created.
