Totally Locally in Forest Hill and 'Fiver Fest Promotion'

Totally Locally celebrates great independent shops, businesses and people of our towns.

Which means better jobs, better facilities and a nicer place for all of us to live, makes you think doesn't it?

TOTALLY LOCALLY FOREST HILL

Interesting story in the Metro Newspaper: Your online life can go on after you die

As an online business selling ladies fashion handbags  any article relating to digital information is relevant to most people modern society. This morning Monday March 12, 2012 we found an interesting article in the Metro newspaper about what happens to our digital information after we die. We all have online accounts which store our information. The interesting thing, is what happens to this information after we pass on, have we even thought about it? The article reports that one in ten people have left their internet passwords in their will or are planning to do so. In the US, state senator John Wrightman wants to introduce a law which allows the executor (the person who sorts out your bills, money and other personal matters after you die) to access your online accounts to either close them or set them as a memorial.

The question is, do we want the executor to have this right? And who owns that information after you die, and should these online corporations have the right to keep our information even after we delete our accounts, it should be noted that even if you close your accounts you can still re-activate them later and find your information, unless you have laboriously deleted every single picture and post before leaving.

It's an interesting, thought provoking article and will surely be debated in Parliament in the future.

How to chose a handbag

When deciding which ladies fashion handbag you want, the first thing you need to do is consider; what is the purpose of the bag? Is the bag for occasional evening use, or is it an everyday bag? If you are looking for an everyday bag, it needs to be considered, what purpose will the bag be used for? Are you a professional or a student and require a bag that can fit your papers and books in? In that case you will need a large bag. Alternatively, if you need a bag that needs a few items such as your mobile phone, purse, makeup case, perhaps an A5 diary and a few other bits, then a medium sized bag may be more appropriate and lastly if you prefer to carry light and only carry the bare essentials a smaller bag may be more appropriate.

Once you have decided what type of handbag you need, the next important question for yourself is what kind of style, are you looking for a plain bag, an traditional bag such as a satchel with a modern twist or a contemporary handbag?

You will also need to consider are there any features which are important to you, for instance do you need a bag which has many zipper pockets? Alternatively, do you want a clutch bag (a bag with no handles), a shoulder bag, which usually has a long strap, or for a smarter look a bag that can be worn tightly under the shoulder with shorter straps.

The next step is to decide on colour, as with style this will usually reflect your personality. If you are unsure; black is usually the safest colour, other dark colours offer the same assurity with a bit of a difference and if you have the personality for a bright red bag, go for it. We have a wide range of different coloured handbags.
