Relaxing in my so called “down time”….Guess what I do?

10 Mar

3.10.2010 By Chase Kyla Hunter

I have a little secret talent that I did not know I had until career boredom and web design exhaustion drove me to despair enough that I began trolling the web, looking for FUN new things to do that had NOTHING to do with writing code or talking to rich, rude, over dressed, poorly spoken, obstinate web design clients with chronic bad breath.

The operative word here being “FUN”.

That’s how I discovered my knack for picking stocks. It must be a shamanic, thing but I have always been irresistibly drawn to everything that comes from the earth herself:  gems, minerals, semi-precious and precious stones, everything produced in nature, by nature, and the more mystically it was produced by mother earth, the more I utterly loved it. Crystals as well,  just utterly fascinate me. I’ve been known to drive for 4 hours to have a chance just to dig crystals out of the ground. It’s the ultimate “easter egg” hunt in nature.

So it makes sense that from playing with penny stocks that I would eventually also fall  in love with everything metallic:  gold silver, platinum, palladium, copper, bronze, if it twinkled, had intrinsic value, and came up out of deep in the ground, I was MOST DEFINITELY into it. I had discovered a whole new universe to play in. I fell in.

Now it’s 5 years later, I made some money along the way, that’s always thrilling, especially when you find a little known stock that no one is paying any attention to, and whoosh, “thar she blows” about 4-8 weeks later. Have this happen to you, even once, and you’re hooked.

Hey. I can think of worse ways to spend my down time.

So I have finally decided to share a little bit of what I learned plying my “metals mining relaxation habit” with the world, so I am building a new blog. It’s tailored to unlikely people in unlikely circumstances who choose to do unlikely things at unlikely moments.

Sound like you? Stop on by!

If you are inclined to get your feet wet with metals mining stocks, penny stock investing, and all things shiny, blingy, twinkly, and potentially VERY valuable you can visit me in my “off” hours over at:

Gold Silver Stock Picks, Bullion, Coins, Gifts, Jewelry, Boots, Hats, Books, Art, Gems, Minerals, CDs, DVDs, Music, Blingy Bling Things.

Here are a few sample posts to whet your appetite for all things gold, silver, metals, and mining companies:

New York Fashion Week’s Top Five Trends

22 Feb

The 5 Biggest Trends From New York Fashion Week

February 21, 2010 – 3:00 pm By Jessica- FIT

Fashion Week and all its bittersweet glory has come and gone. The last Fashion Week to be shown at Bryant Park, designers pulled out all of the tricks under their sleeves to make it unforgettable.  The big white tents, made even whiter by the snow, brought new looks into the new decade that will be sure to translate into your wardrobe.  So what will you be wearing next fall?

1. Neutrals!


Designers showed many variations of neutrals on the runway, from bold blacks shown by Vera Wang to grays and camel tones from favorites Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors.  Whites and ivories made several appearances, almost in a bridal inspired way.  What this means for you: Don’t be afraid to mix and match neutrals.  The classic fashion faux pas “Don’t wear white after labor day” is slowly but surely becoming extinct, so don’t listen to your grandmother when she reprimands you for doing so.  Tell her Thakoon said it was fine.

2. Fur, Fur, Fur.


That’s right.  PETA might disagree, but it is all about the fur for next fall…any kind, in any way.  Coats and shrugs featured bold lavish furs while some designers used fur as trimming to spruce up their looks.  If you’re a friend to the animals or don’t have thousands of dollars to drop on each outfit (who does??) don’t be outraged just yet – variations of faux fur are about to spread like rapid fire.

3. Undercover conservative.


In comparison to the spring, designers turned to more structured silhouettes creating a more conservative look.  Librarian sweaters appeared too many times on the runway to go unnoticed.  But don’t yawn just yet, designers used sequins, embroidery, fur (of course), and much more to glam up each look to take them from boring to flirty sophisticated.

4. Grunge by layers.


Jackets over vests over sweaters over dresses.  The more layers, the better.  A cardigan over a blazer, why not?  Grunge by way of draping is all the rage for next fall.  And did we mention vests? Vests, vests, and more vests.  And get excited to pair elbow length gloves with the numerous amounts of vests that are about to enter your closet.

5. LEGWARMERS!


FINALLY.  A piece of the 80’s are back!  But this time, no aerobics videos are required. Legwarmers were shown in several variations, in wool assortments, over leggings, thigh high, etc.  While you’re layering, don’t forget to slap on a pair of comfy legwarmers.  Wear something simple on top and use a pair of bold colored thigh-high legwarmers as the staple piece to your outfit.  Ask your mom if she has any in any boxes in the attic; vintage legwarmers are even better!
