  • The Best Decision For Your Country House

    Hello my dears!

    I recently did my own research trying to find the best Andriondack Chair for my new country house. It was such an interesting activity, so that I found out many interesting facts about this super furniture. Let me share some of them with you.

    The History of Adirondack Chair

    The style of Adirondack and the famous chair with the same name is a successful story in the world of handicrafts. The whole museum is devoted to this unique invention at the Blue Mountain Lake in the Adirondack Mountains, on the border of the USA and Canada.

    How People Use It Today?

    Over the time, the Adirondack chair was modernized. Nowadays, the seat and back have been made from the individual slats. This is a way to save money on buying wood. At the same time, the functionality of the chair became higher, for example, if it stays in the courtyard, then after the rain the water will not accumulate in it, but will flow through the cracks. In addition, the individual bars allow you to maintain a special shape, which makes it possible to produce a more comfortable back. Today, the chair is made of teak, oak, larch, mahogany, pine. Its design and some details can be different such as bar, double and rocking chair. The only thing that remains the same is the comfort,  which you feel when you sit in it.

    I bought very interesting model. The name of it is POLYWOOD South Beach Adirondack Chair. If you buy them you will be amazed with the quality, I promise you. The color can be different from that one, which you see on the picture. I just like natural colors, so that’s why I’ve chosen light brown. This gorgeous chair was made in USA with amazing, high-quality, stainless steel hardware, and it is simple to assemble. The price a bit high, but you definitely know for what you pay money. Don’t afraid to break it, because it is strong enough. Just sit and relax!

    I also purchased some decorations, such as flowers, lights, rocks and colorful papers. I wanted to make my garden more attractive together with new furniture of Adirondack style and in the end I cold managed to do so.

    I am happy to have such a wonderful design of my new house and completely satisfied by using Adirondack Chair. Try them too, and feel the comfort of relaxing atmosphere.

    What style do you use for your country house? I look forward to receiving comments from you, guys!

  • From the Readers: Remove Cellulite and Maintain Youthful Glow

    I am starting a new section for this blog and I am naming it as “From the Readers.”

    I noticed that I have been receiving messages with questions about my beauty secrets as well as my tips on maintaining my fit body and I dawned my that I should make this one as a section. Hopefully, I can be of help to my readers as I impart some of my knowledge in beauty and travel.

    Here’s my question of the week:

    Hi! I would like to use what are the product you use for facial care and keeping in shape and how often you put them? Do you have a regimen? I would like to have some tips as I have been dealing with a lot of facial dilemmas like skin breakouts, acne, and blemishes. I am in my 20s and yet I still do not know what products I should buy or what should I put on my face in the morning or in the evening. Aside from that, I also need help in losing fat and maintaining a healthy body and removing my wrinkles and cellulite. Your help will definitely be appreciated. I have been reading your blog for quite some time now and I know you share a lot of tips for girls like me. Thankyou in advance!

    Hi there, Mina!

    Glad that you are one of my readers. Here’s my tip:

    1. Always wash your face before sleeping at night, especially if you have make-up. A whole day with make-up not only causes pimples but it also makes ypur pores prone to the absorption of dirt.
    2. Always review the products you will buy. There are times when products advertised are not really what they are supposed to be. Research on the internet, read threads, and ask people of their suggestions before putting something in your face.

     

    1. As for being fit and healthy. Start with what you are eating. Exercise too. But if you want to lose fat quickly, I do suggest you try out ultrasonic cavitation machine which diminishes cellulite in the body. I have tried it a couple of times and it did not disappoint at all. I also did some reviews about it and have asked the helped of fellow bloggers about this product. All they say are positive feedback.

  • Find an easy way to monitor baby’s movement

    Good morning my readers!

    I want to talk about technology today. People created lots of wonderful things, and I even didn’t know that some of them really exists!

    Well, the device I am going to talk about is called Comfort Cam. Um, it sounds interesting, isn’t it? I looked at his website, just to get a bit more information about smart monitor and fall in love!  It’s basically, reliable Wifi baby monitor, which was created for parents, who want to see their children anytime and everywhere. I mean, this camera for those crazy moms like me. When my kids play I think the storm is coming. Trust me, this is not funny and sometimes, even scary. My husband, who works for a website builder company, calls them “little monsters” It’s hard to handle what is happening around. Anyway, I needed a solution to solve this problem. Internet is full of  Wifi baby monitor, but I found Comfort Cam the most suitable for me. Additionally, the look of the camera is pretty nice.  You can monitor children with the app, which was developed specially for this camera.

    How I could find a place and install it?

    Well, that was certainly very interesting. I don’t know where people set up this kind of equipment, you know there are many variants. I thought it would be difficult, but it wasn’t. I just followed the instructions and at the end, I enjoyed the process of installation. Yes, it might be exciting! I bought four cameras in order to make the monitoring more effective.  We put cameras in every room in the corner. Then download specific app for my phone. By the way, it works on both Android and IOS platform. I really appreciate it, because I have  iPhone and my husband has Sumsung.

    Enhance my daily routine

    If I wasn’t buy these cameras, I would have free time at all. Yes, now  I can watch TV and write my blog. I can recover myself after busy days. Finally, I have a better, easier life with this wonderful invention. I’d like to say “THANK YOU” to the team of developers. You are super guys!

    Last week my friend visited and she was surprised by with the decision I implement,  and now wants to buy them too. I suggested to buy exactly Comfort Cam, because it is already tested by me. I haven’t noticed any bug; it works how it should be. I completely satisfied and can’t imagine my daily life without them. Wifi baby monitor saved my day!

  • A Watch for My Husband

    So, it was just my husband’s birthday. I always think that his birthday is going to be so easy, when it comes to planning and shopping, but then I end up being so surprised by how difficult and stressful it is. I guess when you really love someone and really care about them and really want their special day to be as special as it can be, it’s bound to be quite stressful. Or maybe I’m just the kind of person to get stressed out of those things. Anyway, every year I always buy him something like a barbecue, cooler, some kind of tent or camping chair, or something that I can find for him online. The only problem with this is the fact that I don’t know anything about these products, so I depend on the reviews of others.

    This time around, I found him an incredible cooler by browsing around on the website Survival Cooking, which was amazing in its balance reviews that were actually incredibly well-written, if you asked me, they are the probably the best written reviews that I have ever seen on the internet, and I’ve read a lot of reviews for a lot of things, so kudos to the writers on that website. Like, seriously, these are seriously well written reviews. I was also considering getting him a wristwatch, because he doesn’t have anything nice, but at the end of the day I know that it is me that once and have a nice wrist watch, and it is him that wants an amazing supply of Great Outdoor Gear. Maybe for Christmas I’ll buy him the nice watch I had my eye on while searching for the best watches under 500, but I will have you know that he was extremely excited to get his brand new cooler. So, that’s where I’m at with all of this, is that I’m very pleased that his birthday ended up being such a success for me and my gift buying, and that my man is so happy.

  • Unu Motors And Its Wonders

    Who else loves electric scooters? Well, I have been a lover of scooters since was in my teenage years. My uncle gave my first scooter at the age of 18 as a gift for my birthday. Since then, I never left my scooter. There was a time I rode mine when I was about to attend a party. While many drove in their cars, there I was, feeling chic and carefree my scooter.

    I got my second scooter when I was working. My job as an artist has required going from one place to another and it I know it will be a hassle for me if I buy a car. Though I must admit having a car will let me bring my things with me. That is why I mostly rely on ride sharing apps or ride apps in the metro. But that’s another story.

    But there was a time I felt that I needed to change or replace my scooter. That was the time I was introduced to using electric scooters. Unu Motors, the company which may be the leading in providing electric scooters or what they call as the elektrische scooter, has given me all that I need. Unu Motors boasts of its electric scooters that are eco-friendly it does not create sounds on the road, it is not fuelled by gas, it has a portable battery, and has even a system where the energy can be saved when braking, thus saving more battery. And you know what? When you charge an Unu Motor it can last about three days of city driving. Now that’s what we call effortless driving.

  • Pregnancy, A Nutritional Mindfield

    One of the first things I did when I found out about my pregnancy was mourn for the large bottle of gin in my cupboard. How were we going to cope with this long, cruel separation?

    My friends, who miss me.

    My friends, who miss me.

    In all seriousness despite the fact that I had a reasonably healthy diet and lifestyle I knew some changes where going to be necessary. Around two years ago I started following Slimming World and lost around 4 stone in a year and a half. I then began to focus more on having a balanced workable diet that would still lead to weight loss and be easy to stick with. Did this mean I was a lean mean fighting machine? No.

  • Chit Chat – Second Trimester

    Well here we are at 14+2 firmly on the other side of that wild first trimester. To say it was an emotional roller coaster would be an understatement, you can read more about that in my post No Sickness, No Problem?

    My initial symptoms from early pregnancy (first 8 weeks) were sore boobs and a lot of burping. Those both passed and were replaced with exhaustion and tearfullness. I seem to be finding my stride more now though and have very few symptoms other than a growing belly! I’m still ‘craving’ dairy, cheese in particular.

  • Midwife Appointment & 14 Week Update

    IMG_1037Today I am 14+4 and I just had my second ever midwife appointment. It was a little underwhelming if I’m honest. There were a few contributing factors that made it less exciting than I though it’d be…

    • My expectations were a little high
    • Matt had to work and so I was flying solo
    • There was a 40 minute delay to the start of my appointment
    • A trainee obstetrician was sitting in and I felt a little out-numbered.

  • They Said What?! – First Trimester

    I know I am not alone when it comes to being asked inappropriate questions regarding my pregnancy. I’ve read many a blog post about the hideous things well-meaning people say without thinking. Today I’ve got a pet peeve of my own to share with you – I’ll try not to poorly rehash old ground.

    Matt and I were savvy enough to figure out pretty quickly that there were bound to be asked ‘Was it planned?’  by at least a handful of totally over-familiar assholes beloved friends and family.

    congratulations-new-intentional-baby-ecard-someecardsWe decided that there was one (and only one) person we’d entertain an actual conversation with on the topic with (the afore-mentioned, much-loved, younger brother of Matt) For dealing with anyone else we came up with the curt yet diplomatic reply ‘We couldn’t be happier.’
