The Washington town where billionaire Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates live is running out of money, the media has reported.

Bezos and Gates, who are worth nearly $119 billion and $107 billion, respectively, have homes in the small town of Medina, in Washington, which is running out of money to support services such as police, fire and parks.

Global retail behemoth Amazon is headquartered in Seattle while software giant Microsoft is just outside the city. “A town newsletter sent out this month is urging residents to vote yes on a ballot measure that would lift the property tax cap.

“You may find it hard to imagine that the City doesn’t have enough income to sustain current service levels, particularly in this economy. While property values continue to rise, the City’s tax revenues don’t rise in tandem, the newsletter read,” the Fox Business reported on Tuesday. The cost of fire services have increased nearly two-fold in 2019.

“This fall, the question of how to maintain Medina will go to voters. The Medina City Council is placing a levy lid-lift measure on the Nov. 2019 ballot. If approved, the levy lid-lift would provide funds to continue current service levels without significant cuts,” the newsletter stated, according to the Fox Business. The town has a population of just over 3,000 people, and is the seventh-richest zip code in the country.

Some may splurge to look great but achieving a diva look on a relatively tight budget is easy.

Here are a few tips from Sadiya Naseem, the founder of Glam Studios, to keep your glam quotient up while keeping your budget intact.

Always wear a smile with a little bit of lipstick

A good lipstick is loved by most, and applying it well can enhance your appearance and add confidence to your personality. It may contain moisturizing additives like aloe-vera or Vitamin E, thereby keeping your lips hydrated. Lipstick also works as a sunscreen for your lips. A smile works like a charm when worn with lipstick.

Do regular trims

Trimming your hair at least once a month enhances hair growth by getting rid of split ends and damaged hair. Your hair will break less this way and will grow faster in a shorter duration of time. So, going for regular trims avoid your chance of spending too much on expensive hair treatments.

Yoga to the rescue

It’s not just workout, it’s work-in. Yoga not only keeps your body fit but also keeps your soul healthy. Yoga develops inner awareness. It focuses your attention on your body’s abilities at the present moment. It helps in breathing and proper blood circulation in your body, thereby adding glow to your skin.

Your glow is in your kitchen

The combination of honey and lemon is the best for healthy and glowing skin. It not only lightens the skin tone but also works as an exfoliator for acne, blackheads and other blemishes.

Accessorize the same wardrobe with a new look every time

Accessories are like supplements to fashion, but here you can use them liberally. Wearing a nice scarf, a light kerchief, wearing small pieces of jewellery, or just a handbag same as the colour of your shoes will definitely add oomph to your outfit. (IANS)
