7 Simple Ways to Declutter your Home

 

Some of us get too attached to our possessions and store them for too long in our home. Over time, we collect heaps of clutter which can be a big issue for your house. This is especially true when the time comes that you decide to move to a new place, to sell your property, rent it out or have it renovated. You will get frustrated when you find piles and piles of unnecessary and unused items in your home. Aside from that, you might find it troublesome and inconvenient to get rid or organise your clutter.

While decluttering may seem daunting for you, it is an important task that should not be avoided. By regularly removing unnecessary items in your house, you can avoid collecting heaps of clutter. Damaged items should be thrown away so that they won’t become clutter and even be hazardous to your daily living.

You might not have hoarder-level clutter in your home, but having a major clean out from time to time can bring several benefits to your family. A tidier and well-organised home can reduce physical and emotional stress inside your home. Aside from that, you can also have an easier and convenient way to access the things you need. It goes without saying that you can save a lot of effort and time.

Are you ready to have a more organised and cleaner living space? Well, take a look at the following tips we’ve prepared that will help you conveniently and easily declutter your home.

Don’t Declutter in One Go

When we hold on to certain items for a long time, we tend to have a difficult time to let go of them. So, do not stress yourself out too much by decluttering in one go. The best way to do it is to take your time. If you want, you can do it day by day. Each day, place an item you need to get rid of inside a box. Once the year ends, you would have collected boxes of clutter that you can easily get rid of. Just make sure you do not go through the items once you’ve placed them inside the ‘Clutter’ boxes!

Remove the Small Items First

One of the easiest ways to declutter is by removing the small items first. For instance, you can start by removing old purses or pouches. As time goes by, you can move to bigger items. Eventually, you will gain the strength to get rid of larger items like furniture and unused appliances. These small changes you make eventually make a big difference in your goals for decluttering.

Take it One Room at a Time

Once you start decluttering, you will find it difficult to stay focused on your project. The best way to keep your focus is by decluttering one room at a time. Divide your house into different areas and focus your time and effort on a single space at a time. For instance, you can start from the back of your house and then work your way towards the front. Just make sure that the items you’ve removed do not move to other parts of your home.

Ask the Whole Family to Join

We’ve repeated several times how overwhelming the decluttering process can be. However, you can make the process a lot easier when you ask help from the whole family. When you turn it into a family affair, you can get support and lessen the stress of decluttering. You can tell the kids to take care of their own room and get rid of their old toys and clothing. You can even motivate them by telling them that there is a reward waiting for them when they declutter a certain number of items. Encourage them to clean out their room by promising a toy or a trip to the theme park!

Donate Items in Good Condition

They say that one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure. You might discover unused items in your attic or garage that are still in good condition. This would be the perfect time to visit your local donation centre and ask what type of items you can donate to them. You would be surprised to discover that most donation centres accept a range of items—from toys and toiletries to old furniture and cabinetry. While decluttering your home, you can make another person happy.

Refurbish Items and Give Them Away

There might be pieces of furniture in your home that do not go well with the house’s overall theme and style. However, you are having a hard time getting rid of them because they still look good and functional. You would not want to waste them by simply throwing them away. So, what you can do is refurbish them. Once you’ve breathed new life into these pieces of furniture, a friend or loved one would find it useful and might want to keep it.

Declutter with the Help of a Skip Bin Hire Company

While the decluttering process is underway, you will discover that you have been collecting heaps of rubbish in your home. For instance, you will find old packaging materials, cards, cardboard boxes and other waste materials you should get rid of. Gather them in a pile and you will see how much space they are consuming. If the rubbish you’ve collected won’t fit your own bin, contact a trusted waste removal company for assistance.

Decluttering can be tiring and you also have to deal with getting rid of piles and piles of waste. The practical, convenient and cost-effective way of removing clutter is by hiring a skip bin from a reliable waste management company.

One of the options you can choose when getting rid of rubbish is making trips to the landfill. However, you will find that this takes a lot of time and effort. If you do not have the vehicle to accommodate the amount of rubbish you have, you might even need to hire a man-with-a-van service or a flatbed truck. On the other hand, hiring a skip bin is more convenient and affordable. With the right skip bin size, you can get rid of all your waste in at once, eliminating the need to make several trips to the rubbish tip.

Decluttering does not necessarily have to be overwhelming and frustrating. As long as you take your time and manage your rubbish accordingly, you will be able to make good progress in your goals towards having a cleaner and tidier home.

Let’s talk organic skin care: things you should know

Let’s talk organic skin care: things you should know

 

Just because something says natural doesn’t necessarily mean it’s really organic or good for your skin. Maybe you have noticed that after switching from one “natural” product to another there can be a lot of difference on the look of your skin. After months or even years of being unsure what the sources of your skin imperfections are, it is about time to alter your skin care and start using organic instead. And now, you probably think what to do first. Well, go through these tips and tricks that will help you with taking that first crucial step.

Find out what is your skin type

 

It is very important to know your skin type before choosing your skin care. Don’t just buy what you find visually appealing, or what you think smells good because it may damage your skin and leave you with consequences that will show later on. It is normal for your skin to get thinner as years go by, with tendency to become wrinkled, but why not slow the process?

 

With the right preparation, you can achieve bloomy looking skin that glows and postpone the aging process. Read the labels; find organic products that are made for your exact skin type to keep it elastic, healthy and nourished. It is time to change the way you took care of your face and body, to get rid of all the bad habits and start treating your skin the right way.

 

Try DIY

 

There are tons of DIY skin care alternatives that you can apply to your face and body to get the results you want. There are recipes you can make with various fruits and vegetables that can be helpful not only for hydrating but for exfoliating too. Exfoliation is very important because that way you remove dead skin cells and as a result, get smoother skin while keeping it fresh and clean. Applying homemade apricot face scrub is the best way to exfoliate your skin because of the abrasive texture provided by the fruit itself. Try using high-quality honey to make face mask since honey is natural antibacterial and it also hydrates and calms the skin.

 

Read everything

 

Be sure that you have read everything written on a cosmetic product before purchasing it. Educate yourself about the impact different chemicals have on your skin, such as parabens or phthalates. Many researches show that using products consisting aluminum can severely damage your health so think about the consequences. Check the list of ingredients on the products you are using now and replace them with organic chemical-free cosmetics to prevent skin irritation or allergic reaction. Think in advance to help your skin retain its elasticity and freshness. So be smart, choose your organic skincare products wisely and start making changes. Help your skin look beautiful, be smooth and stay healthy.

 

Avoid strong perfumed products

 

Avoid purchasing perfumed cosmetics since it is more likely to be filled with harmful chemicals. It can irritate your skin or make it look unappealing. Natural organic skin care usually have mild smell, mostly you can recognize it as scent of natural ingredients. If you really need your cosmetic to be fragranced, try combining it with essential oils for the extra touch of aroma. For example, using tea tree oil not only will make your skin smell good but also make it healthy and reduce the amount of acne. Not to mention you can use it on your hair as well to make it stronger and give it shiny look.

 

Now that you know what, why and how to do it, there are no more excuses. Think about the results and the impact switching to organic cosmetics will have on your skin, and how good will it make you feel. As we all know – if your skin is clean and you truly feel beautiful you will indeed be in a good mood, ready to seize the day!

Myths about Female Drivers and the Truth behind Them

Myths about Female Drivers and the Truth behind Them

 

 

It seems like not one day can pass without hearing a blatantly sexist joke. Women are teased on a wide range of topics, from their obsession with shoes to having to be “in the kitchen”, but all of them have one thing in common – women as the punch line. One of the most frequent jokes is about women being bad drivers, with endless videos of women struggling to park cars or driving slowly (like there is anything bad about not rushing). And I think we all know it, but let’s set the record straight once and for all: women being bad drivers is a myth. And here’s some proof:

Traffic accidents

People like to say that women cause more traffic accidents than men because they’re easily distracted, put on makeup while behind the wheel or simply are bad at driving. But if we look at the numbers: 71 percent of all fatalities on the road are caused by men. And you might say that it is because there are more male drivers overall, but actually, women have surpassed men in that department and there are more female drivers than ever. Sorry, guys, you will have to find a better excuse than just saying that an accident was caused because there was a woman behind the wheel.

Careless driving

Women have been blamed for being reckless drivers not because of any natural hand-eye health problems, but mostly due to typical female stereotypes. It’s said that women put their makeup on while driving, look at their phones more often, talk to other people and even stare at their own reflection rather than the road around them. These are all absolute lies. Men are commonly caught for drunk driving, ignoring the traffic rules, speeding and running a red light – all resulting in crashes nearly twice as often as in women. So, I think the “careless” argument could use some reconsidering.

Women drive less

This one is actually true. Male drivers make up for a little over 60% of miles driven, but that number is gradually getting even as well, since women have started being economically independent, having their own cars and simply driving more. So even when we factor in all of those things, and take into consideration the hours driven, statistically, men are still worse drivers than women. Luckily, the overall number of traffic accidents involving both male and female drivers has gone down, but perhaps we’ll see it drop even more as women start taking over the roads.

Bad reputation and bad manners

It seems like every time a female celebrity has been caught violating traffic rules, the media uses her as an example of women being bad drivers. In fact, when any woman is driving badly, she is considered a proof of the myth, but when it happens to a man, he is simply an exception. Stereotypes aside, I think we can all agree that everyone who wants to drive can find an amazing, affordable driving school and learn all they need to know in order to be a good driver. Furthermore, we are terrible towards each other on the road, so next time you see someone crawling down a highway lane, instead of laying on the horn and making them feel bad, simply overtake them and continue straight on.

It seems that we have started to move on from juvenile jokes that put down an entire gender over an absolute myth, and I look forward to the day when we can all respect each other as drivers, without guessing the other’s capabilities simply based on one’s gender. So, what can you do? If you were never the one to tell jokes like these, then call out people who do, and teach them the real truth. If we all had more confidence in each other, we would all be a lot safer while on the road.

Most Coveted Celebrity Body Parts

Most Coveted Celebrity Body Parts

 

According to statistics, 17.1 million cosmetic procedures were performed back in 2016. From breast augmentation, through liposuction, nose reshaping and eyelid surgery, to facelifts and tummy tucks, people are turning to plastic surgery more often every year, when they don’t feel happy with their body. However, they don’t just look for a random nose reshaping or breast augmentation, but for specific body parts of actors, singers, or starlets. From Matthew McConaughey’s abs to Madonna’s cheekbones, people hope to look like their favourite celebrity more and more each day.

Nose

The nose is one of the most prominent facial features, and it makes a lot of difference to a person’s looks. A big nose isn’t flattering, while a small one can make some other features of face anatomy more noticeable and put the entire face in disproportion. On the other hand, the size doesn’t have to be an issue every time. Aside from being too big or too small, someone might have a crooked nose, and surgery can be the only way to make it straight and proportional. Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Nicole Kidman are just some of the celebrities whose noses seem to be the most wanted among the patients, because they’re perfectly proportional.

Lips

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/Angelina_Jolie_Cannes_2007.jpg

The facial anatomy can appear entirely different with thin lips than it can with a full pout. Thin lips give out an impression of a less sexy appearance, which happens to be the main reason for people all over the world to undergo a lip injection procedure. Angelina Jolie’s lips are definitely the most wanted among patients, since they are perfectly full and balanced with the plump bottom lip and a slightly thinner upper lip, that shape the flawless pout.

Buttocks

Many women yearn for a nicely rounded and well-shaped backside, since most of them didn’t have the luck to be born with one. While some of them have tried working out and didn’t reach their goal, others skipped that step and turned immediately to a professional to request a procedure that will give them the perfectly shaped buttocks. Beyoncé’s gluteus has been the synonym for a well-shaped bootie, and lately, Kim Kardashian’s has been a real competition, with more women wanting precisely the backside of this controversial starlet.

Abs

Nicely shaped abs are one of the most attractive features of the human anatomy. This is especially true for men, who are eager to show off a good-looking six-pack. Matthew McConaughey’s and Channing Tatum’s abs are the most wanted among men, according to plastic surgeons. Thanks to a non-invasive body sculpting procedure, the patients can quickly reach their goal. After the fat cells are frozen and eliminated with the cooling procedure, they’re forever gone from their tummy, offering a perfect figure, that will need only a little bit of exercise to look as good as Matthew’s or Channing’s.

Cheekbones

Years certainly can’t do a thing to this megastar, because as the time goes by, people don’t cease to strive for having exactly the same cheekbones as Madonna. They’re perfectly high, which can make a person look regal, while they add a dose of youthfulness as well.

From cheekbones, through abs and buttocks, to a symmetrical nose and perfect lips, people try to look more like celebrities every day, by wanting some of their body features. However, sometimes, it takes more than just a visit to the plastic surgeon to reach the goal. Remember that recoveries from some surgeries take a lot of time, so make sure you always consult with the doctor before you decide to go under the knife.

Moisturising your skin as when possible is one of the best remedies to deal with dryness. Apply Olive oil before going to moisturise your skin naturally. You can also use Milk cream, Honey, Yogurt or Aloe vera instead of going for thick cosmetic creams.

 

Moisturise your face 2 – 3 a day as and when you feel dryness.

 

Scrubbing

Take 2 ripe bananas and mash them, add a pinch of sugar and honey. Honey helps in moisturising the face naturally. Gently massage your face with this scrub and wash your face.

 

Another Face scrub that you can make at home is using orange peel and dry it completely in sun. Make a powder of it. Add honey to it and apply the paste on face and massage gently on face.

 

Instead of Orange peel, you can also opt for Lemon peel.

 

Toning

Apply tomato on your face and scrub it. This will help in treating uneven skin tone. Another alternative for toning at home is mixing yogurt with orange peel. Place Potato and Cucumber slices on the face can help in lightening of skin, hydrating and detoxifying.

If we are using all natural ways to protect our skin during winter then why not cleanse our face naturally. Gently massage with coconut oil on face and leave it for 30s. Take a warm cloth and place it on your face. Keep it for 10-15sec and let the pores open up. Wipe face with a face cloth.

 

Clean with Lukewarm Water

Since winter’s are cold we loving bathing in hot water. However, it makes us feel good but always remember to wash your face with lukewarm water. This will prevent removing all oil from the skin. Our skin needs some oil as winter’s makes our skin dry.

Some will lead you to Grand Canyon West, some to El Dorado Canyon and the Valley of Fire. One thing is for sure: whatever you pick, you won’t be disappointed. Someone said once that a good marriage resembles the Grand Canyon; it’s long, deep, challenging and weathered. However, when you look back at it from afar, it sure is the most beautiful thing in the world. Therefore, be sure to consider this option seriously.

Hopefully you’ll consider some of our tips for your dream destination wedding location. Choosing the location isn’t easy, but it sure is worth all the trouble in the end. You want to create a wonderful memory and, one day when you look back on it, you’ll want to smile because it was so great. Of course, it all boils down to what the two of you personally like.

Qualities of A Good Electrician

By Guest Blogger, Rohin D.

Qualities of A Good Electrician

Finding an excellent electrical contractor can be challenging. In fact, many people have ended up making the wrong decisions when selecting an electrician, simply because they didn’t know how to choose one. At times, you can result in working with an electrician who you have got no clue about, and because of this, you could be risking your safety as well as of those close to you. This can happen, especially if you hire someone who is inexperienced and uncertified.

So, what are the qualities of a good electrical contractor? Here are the qualities which can guide you when selecting an electrical contractor.

Fully certified and licensed

This is the most important aspect to look for in an electrician. Always ensure that you choose electricians who are certified and licensed by accredited institutions. If the electricians belong to a company ensure that the company provides its employees with proper training in their different fields.

Has a good experience

When an electrical contractor is recommended to you by a friend or relative, you are assured that the electrician has high standards, and therefore has a good reputation. Also, it is good to research about the electrician you are about to hire and also ask for references. A good electrical contractor will have good recommendations, five-star ratings as well as good records of high-quality work. If the electrician belongs to a particular company, inquire about the company’s background and ensure that the company provides reliable electricians.

Proper training and experience

Never underestimate the importance of hiring an electrician with several years of experience. Remember that the electrician will be working on your premises and you don’t want them to mess things or do a shoddy job. Therefore, it is good to ensure that the electrician is well experienced to handle any problem with your electrical system. The electrical contractor should have the ability to diagnose the problem, give possible solutions and then fix the problem.

Honesty and clear communication skills

A professional electrical contractor will explain to the client what should be done and charge the client a fair price reflecting the work required to be done. In addition, the electrician should take time to explain the issues they have diagnosed, why the problems need to be fixed and also offer possible solutions or alternatives.

4 Questions about Women’s Intimate Hygiene – Answered

 

Turns out that all women have the same questions and the same concerns about their personal hygiene, and many feel too embarrassed or afraid to talk about them. But our personal, feminine hygiene is crucial for good health, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed to ask questions about your body. You should always be aware of what is going on inside of you, and ask a professional for advice if you see some changes that you aren’t sure about. So, let’s answer some of the most frequent questions about your personal hygiene:

Are the odors normal?

We all tend to think that our bodies are somehow weird and different from everyone else’s. But actually, the odds are that whatever you are going through, a lot of people are going through as well. You might notice a certain odor around your vagina, but the discharge that it produces (which is also completely normal) often has a smell. The one thing you definitely mustn’t do is use strong soaps with a lot of perfume to try to cover up the smell, because that can do some serious damage. If you think that the odor is stronger than it should be, or if you find it unpleasant, it might be a good idea to check in with your doctor, because a strong odor might be a sign of an infection that needs to be taken care of.

Should I be douching?

Absolutely not. Your vagina is actually very smart and it takes care of itself really good. The discharge that you can sometimes spot is actually a vagina’s self-cleansing system, which, if you are in good health, works like a charm. Douching, or trying to clean the inside of your vagina in any way, can harm the natural balance and processes that your body has in place. Remember that periods are completely normal and that there is no need to feel dirty, while you are on your period. If you think that there is something wrong with your lady parts, instead of taking things into your own hands – visit a gynecologist and share your worries with them.

Should I groom my pubic hair?

That choice is entirely up to you. In the past, women and men would remove their hair to prevent lice, but in today’s modern society, we don’t have those worries. What’s more, your pubic hair actually protects your vagina from any dirt that might otherwise get to your labia. So, the choice is entirely up to you, but be careful with hair removal techniques, because your skin is very delicate in that area and ingrown hairs are a common occurrence. If you do choose to remove your pubic hair, perhaps it’s best to visit a professional beauty salon and let them help you.

What is the proper way to clean up?

While you are in the shower, you should wash the outer parts of your vagina with some warm water. If you want to use soap, make sure it is natural, mild and made for intimate care. Don’t ever let soap get on the inside of your vagina. Some places have equipment devoted to the task, like a bidet in Australia or Europe. These are especially useful for when you are on your period, because they make cleaning up very easy. But if you are out and about, traveling or camping, you can use intimate wet wipes for on-the-go freshness.

 

Remember that it’s up to you how you take care of your body, and health and comfort should be your top priorities. So, stay clean and fresh and be happy in your body.
