5 Cool Things by Chanmaliny Sam


Belt
It’s one of those things that somehow seems unavoidable, regardless of how many times you think you’ve learned your lesson. You go shopping for a new outfit, for a big event or whatever, and even though your fancy new dress looked awesome at the store, it just seems to have lost its attractiveness by the time you are on your way out the door. I offer a solution that has never failed me in such situations: keep a stylish belt on hand to liven up your wardrobe whenever you are feeling drab, it can make any outfit look glamorous.


Name card
The embarrassment of not having a name card when asked for one makes you want to run away and hide. It’s like telling someone that you’re not ready for the real world. Name cards are like proof of your identity in the professional world, but you don’t need to have a high paying job to understand the importance of contacts. It can be so frustrating to meet someone, and then realise you have no way of reaching them when you want to see them again. If you don’t have the money to buy professional cards, buy some nice paper and print your own. It will pay off in the end.


Nail Decoration
Nails have long been an essential part of maintaining your beauty, but just because fancy fingernails are an age old tradition doesn’t mean innovations aren’t being made. You may think you need to spend valuable time and money in order to get your nails sparkling, but you don’t need to make great sacrifices to keep your talons looking terrific. Pick up a cheap pack of stickers with flowers, stars and cartoons, and you can decorate your nails in seconds for next to nothing. Try it out. I dare you to tell me I’m wrong.


CD case
In case you forgot what CDs are, they are the plastic discs that people used to use to play music. Guess what? Now that owning an Mp3 player is just as common as owning underwear, CD players are the new black IPod. Trust me on this, but be warned that carrying your CDs in a disorderly manner is still categorically lame. The only answer, therefore, is to buy a CD player and an accompanying CD case that shows people that you care about your music. When someone sees you flip open the cover of your disc man and expertly slide a CD out of the case and into the disc tray, they won’t think your cool, they’ll know it.


Paper clip
Where is that document? This question usually leads to an hour of rifling through papers, which have been all mixed up, as inevitably happens. It’s unavoidable, unless, of course, you take my advice and start utilizing paper clips. They say you should use the right tool for the job, and sorting papers is just what paper clips were designed for. Spend a few minutes at the end of the day categorizing your papers, and then you can sleep soundly as your paper clip stands guard through the night, making sure no paper falls out of place.
