Photo Booth

How the Photo Booth Can Be the Life of the Party

Most people have heard of someone being dubbed the life of the party. A person with such party-going skills is usually a popular addition to any party because he or she simply makes the party more fun to be at. They can stir everyone up and break the ice so people feel more comfortable chatting and laughing with people they don’t really know well. So how can a photo booth be the life of a party?

For some reason, people congregate around it. They hear others laughing as they dress up ready to have their photo taken and it attracts them and they are drawn towards the sound like moths to a flame. If you don’t have photo booth hire on the to-do list for your party, better put it on now.

Once a crowd is standing around watching others have fun and waiting for their turn at the booth, even more people drift over to see what’s going on. They think it’s a good idea to have their photo taken, so they stay there and await their turn. Meanwhile, they are having fun watching all the other people have fun. Before you know it, half the party is going on over near the photo booth.

Five Ways to Improve Your Mental Health

Although Australia is one of the more “modern” and “advanced” countries in the world, our culture still has a huge racism problem. This stretches to include everything from casual racism to obvious racial discrimination within many workplaces.

Unfortunately, racial discrimination can have severe impacts on people’s mental health. If you’ve ever suffered such problems, you may have encountered mental illnesses as a result.

And although you should always take steps to ensure racial discrimination is eliminated from your workplace – including seeking legal advice if necessary – it’s also important to keep yourself healthy.

To help you do this, we’ve put together the following guide of five easy ways to improve your mental health and maintain a positive state of mind.

  1. Do Something You Enjoy

If you feel like your mental health is suffering as a result of discrimination (or anything else), you may need to just sit back and relax for a while. One of the best ways to return yourself to a positive state of mind is to spend time doing things you enjoy.

For example, if you love the ocean, you might consider getting out for regular walks, fishing, diving or even surfing if you’re an athletic type. It’s also a well-known fact that simply being out in nature is good for your mental health.

Wedding DJ

8 Questions You Need to Ask the Wedding DJ

Nearly everyone these days considers dj hire to be an important part of organising their wedding reception. The dj can play a great variety of music for your wedding and what you get is the original covers, not someone playing their version of the songs you choose. However, to get the best disc jockey for your needs, you need to ask them these 8 questions.

  • Are you available on the date I’ve set? Naturally enough, no matter how good the dj is he won’t be able to perform at your wedding if he’s already booked for another. That’s why it’s important to start on your quest early – like several months ahead of the date.
  • How much experience do you have? Djs have to start somewhere, but hopefully, not at your wedding. You want someone who has a track record of successful wedding receptions behind him so you can have peace of mind that he will be able to deliver the goods for yours.
  • What kind of music do you play at weddings? The dj needs to play what you want, not what they want. He should be willing to sort out his playlist to include your style and genre of music as well as requests from your guests. Everyone like to listen to their favourite song.
