Have you heard the famous quote "necessity is the mother of invention". Well this famous quote has resembled in many countries across the world. Inventors Day is observed on 29 September by numerous countries, as it is the anniversary of Argentinian inventor László József Bíró, the discoverer of the ball-point pen.

Inventions have a robust influence on the way civilizations are organized, making it intolerable to imagine how we could survive without them. Every device we use in everyday life such as book or house light was once an groundbreaking invention which altered civilization.

Here are some key discoveries that have wedged the world for good

Invented by Chinese between the 9th and 11th century, initial compass were made from naturally magnetized piece of the mineral magnetite.

With help from his colleagues he improved his proposal in November 1990 to build a project called World Wide Web  as a web of documents to be viewed by internet browsers

Paper : Invented in china during the Han Dynasty, it spread slowly to the other parts of the world as part of trade routes. Earlier material used for producing paper was expensive but as understanding of paper processing improved, cheaper raw materials reduced the cost of paper. Thus it started becoming available to the masses.

Invention is never ending story. Humans will continue to innovate. I will like to end this blog post with a nice quote from Steve jobs 
"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new."

Keep up with the rapidly-changing fashion industry is important to maintain a peppy style determination. It is vital to find fashion motivation and fashion guidelines that will refresh your attires and inspire you to express yourself with lively clothes and accessories.

The trick to achieving a unique style that is all you is to combine elements from diverse fashion flairs as well as from numerous features of your character/taste/lifestyle/mood/etc. However, keep in mind that if you want to look decent you need to whip up a clothing combination consisting of essentials and fashionable pieces to keep your look well-adjusted and avoid a head-to-toe loony look.

Our parents always dressed the way they wanted. They outfitted themselves in what made them feel most comfortable. It is important to find what makes you feel good about yourself. A lot of people are really made up artificially but they can't walk in their own shoes. If it looks good on someone else, then it does not mean that it won't look as good on you. You should always wear a attire that will give you a bigger does of self-assurance. It is important to find things that give you your identity. The greatest way to feel glamorous is to just feel like yourself and be in your own skin.

Some of the quotes that inspire the Peppy style attitude within me are:
  • The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence
  • It is the choice that you have to wake up every day and say "There is no reason today can't be the best day of my life"
  • I never think about how other people will respond to the way i dress. dressing is all about reflecting how i feel
  • If i not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then i would rather be myself
  • I know someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high
  • I hope i never stop changing
  • I feel like there so many people i admire for so many reasons that i can't look at one person and say "i want that life". i want to make my own history
  • family is at the heart of everything i do
  • I would rather be myself than spending time and energy on somebody that i didn't feel sure about
  • I have never been a big fan of gossip. being a victim of it, i know how much it hurts
