Hard-working people seldom have time for themselves, so when you get a couple of days off it is only natural that you want to spend it by doing something you like. Sadly, it often happens that when that me-time arrives, people choose to sleep longer, and binge-watch their favourite TV show or read Tia’s blog. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but there are so many creative and exciting ways to use that time, it would be shame to miss them.

Invite your friends over

When was the last time you and your friends spent some time together, but not in a bar on Saturday night? You can refresh your teenage memories if you decide to make barbecue in the back yard, bring some beer, and spend time just talking and listening to music, of watching a good movie or watching  a basketball match. It doesn’t have to be a party for dozens of people, sometimes only you and your two or three closest friends can have a wonderful time and enjoy a quiet day at home. Watch old videos of yourselves, browse photos from when you were younger, and re-live old memories of your high school and student days. Such casual activity can fill you up with positive energy that will last for weeks to come.

Pretend you’re a tourist

Think about it, what was the last time you actually walked through your city and actually paid attention to your surrounding: architecture, monuments, and comfortable places in the park. When you’re a tourist, you take time to get to know the place you’re visiting and learn about it but when you live there, it stops being interesting, and that’s a shame. Browse the web to find out about your city, put on your sunglasses, grab a gopro hero action camera, put backpack on your back and explore the beauty of your hometown. What is more, you can upload the video on Youtube and help many others who would like to come and visit; not only will you spend the day being physically active, but you can have wonderful photos and videos for later.

DIY day

All of us have some DIY projects that we put off just because we don’t have enough time or patience to finish them. So, when you finally get some free time, why not use it in a bit more creative way and finish what you have been intending to finish a long time ago? Make that easy mirror frame out of old CDs, make your own dream catcher, and bring in some twigs and leaves to decorate your living room. DIY day can also mean experimenting in the kitchen with some delicious recipes for soups, sauces, and cakes; so fill your kitchen with flavours from all over the world: Thailand, India, China, Italy, and Mexico.

Muster some energy

Of course, there are also times when you just cannot muster enough energy to walk, talk, and work on your day off, and that’s ok. Sometimes a person just needs some quiet “me time” to feel refreshed again. Spend this day taking good care of yourself: drink a lot of flavoured water and green tea, make smoothies and healthy pancakes, finally finish the book like you have been planning to do for weeks, and go to bed early. Use this time to get a quality rest, and not just lay around, eat chips, and drink beer.

We are all different, and we all have our own definitions of ‘rest’ and ‘fun’, but sometimes we should all step out of our comfort zones and try something new. The quiet ones should spend the day with friends, and those who are always on the move should slow down and enjoy the day.

5 Top Priorities When Baby Is on Its Way

The moment when you find out that you are expecting a baby is a true life changer – and it definitely marks the beginning of the whole new part of it. Pregnancy is often a true roller coaster of emotions, however, it is definitely one of the most beautiful and blessed parts of any woman’s life. It carries a lot of responsibility, and you will have to set up a new list of priorities. Here are five of them which are essential when your baby is on its way.

 

Choose a Reliable Doctor

Having a clear picture of what you want out of your pregnancy will help you sort out your priorities when it comes to choosing a reliable doctor. Find out whether you are at risk of any complications because of diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity. Decide where you would like to deliver – at a hospital, or maybe at home? Also, take into consideration natural vs. medicated birth, and choose what you think is best for you. Once you have answered these questions, start looking for a doctor to guide you through your pregnancy.

 

Create a Parent Budget

You should be aware of the fact that your budget will drastically change when the baby arrives, so it is essential that you create a parent budget. Write down the amount of money that is coming in and going out each month, and include things like childcare, diapers, toys, formula, and so on. Make sure that you have included all the potential costs, so that you can run your household without troubles.

 

Purchase Necessary Nursery Equipment

There are numerous ways to save some money on baby items, and one of them is certainly through discount stores. No matter what, there is a list of essential nursery equipment that needs to be purchased before your baby arrives. Some of the required items are federally approved car seat, bottles and brushes for cleaning them, changing table, as well as nursing bras. A diaper bag is also required, and it has to be stacked with several diapers, baby wipes, receiving blanket, plastic bag for soiled diapers, and clean clothes.

 

Get a Crib

Besides all the aforementioned equipment, a crib is another element that needs to be purchased before giving birth. If you decide to assemble it by yourself, make sure that a manual is used. If there are any pieces left when you are done – do it again until the crib is steady, because it is the only way of doing it right. Also, make sure that it is low enough to the ground, so that you can easily reach in and get baby out with ease. Some cribs can even transform into toddler or full-size beds later on, so it is good to have that convertible option in mind, too.

 

Prepare Everything in Advance

Once the crib is successfully assembled, parents-to-be should make their home safe for their future child. Plug-ins for electrical outlets are located at the perfect height to draw the attention of a curious baby, which can be very dangerous for it. This is exactly why you should get special plastic plates which can be placed over outlet covers, which will force the user to slide it over in order to access the power supply – babies cannot do that. Also, there should always be hot water in your home, in order to establish an everyday bathing routine. For that reason, make sure that all hot water problems are solved.

 As you can see, there are many things that need to be taken care of when your baby is on its way. Sorting out priorities is one of the best ways to handle all the situations without stress, so make sure that you have that covered. Predict potential problems, solve them in advance, and enjoy the most beautiful days of your life.

How to Fight Depression Caused by Bad Weather

I don’t know about you, but every time it starts raining I immediately start feeling cranky, tired and kind of depressed. It can sometimes get really hard, since even getting out of the warm bed is very tough. One question is inevitable in such a situation: What should I do in order to overcome such a state of mind? If you are struggling with bad mood caused by dreadful weather and you might been wondering what is the secret of Tia’s beautiful smile, stay with me. Here are some tips on how to overcome your every day struggles.

Avoid Negativity of Any Kind

Bad weather is depressing enough for itself, so make sure that you are surrounded with people who won’t make it even worse for you. Avoid those friends who are complaining all day long, because their negative energy will affect your mood more than you think. Instead of hanging out with high-maintenance friends, you should opt for the ones who are always ready for meaningful, light conversation that won’t depress you even more. Spend more time with those who make you laugh! Perhaps you can do great things together.

De-Clutter Your Personal Space

Bad weather in combination with a mess all over your room is not a good combo, and you can be sure that it will make you even more nervous. Seriously, you should make an effort and collect all those dirty clothes you were piling on the armchair in the corner over the week. Get rid of all the newspapers that are stacked on the table, and you will see that a sense of accomplishment is an instant mood booster. Unnecessary chaos definitely sucks in your mental energy, so make sure that you have that covered.

Add a Splash of Colour

One of the ways to differ from all the people dressed according to the current weather situation is to add a splash of vibrant colours to a gray day. Use all the colours you love – that yellow coat of yours has been abandoned for a long time now, so take it and head straight outside. Match it with a chunky red scarf and earrings in the same colour – these will provide a great contrast to your bright coat. Of course, since weather is unpredictable, make sure that you have ordered green promotional umbrellas for yourself and your friends. They will love it!

Be Active!

Rainy, cloudy days are perfect for lying in the bed covered with warm blankets, but let’s face it – the best way to beat feeling of uselessness is to get up and be active. Any kind of physical activity is great, even walking up and down the stairs. Do some jumping jacks or squats, or take a quick walk to your favourite coffee shop. That will immediately get your blood flowing, plus the fact that you will get an opportunity to enjoy a cup of perfectly delicious latte. It doesn’t get better than that!

Fake It ‘Till You Make It

If none of the aforementioned tips is working, and you can’t get yourself out of the bad mood, consider faking the feeling of happiness until you finally make it. Trust me, pretending that you are cheerful for a short period of time can be highly beneficial, since it will eventually set you into the good mood. Straighten your posture, put a smile on your face, play your favourite song and you will see – happiness is contagious. Bad weather doesn’t have to come hand in hand with bad mood, that’s for sure!

As you can see, there are so many ways to fight bad mood caused by awful weather. You should just know that it is all up to you – don’t expect anyone to be your mood booster but yourself. After all, you are the one who knows what works the best in these situations, so give your best and make the most of it.

Start Off on the Right Foot with Generous New Year Investments. By Guest Blogger, Daniel R.

Start Off on the Right Foot with Generous New Year Investments

All of us like to think that New Year will bring a fresh start, both when it comes to our private lives and to business. Starting off on the right foot with generous investments is something that should concern all the local authorities in the world, simply because there are so many people out there who need their help. There is so much to be done, but one question inevitably arises – Who needs our help the most? Stay with us in order to find out the answer.

• Homeless People

Winter can be very tough, and homeless people certainly know that first-hand. Helping them during the cold days is something that we as humans need to do, and local authorities are the ones who should make it happen. Building a shelter where homeless can stay when the low temperatures strike has to be financed from the budget, as well as the food that should be provided for those people. Besides that, we are the ones who have to help, too. Donating canned goods or a bag of groceries to a local homeless shelter may seem insignificant, but they will certainly appreciate your concern.

• People Who Are Battling Cancer

Supporting people with cancer is very important because they need our positive energy as a motivation to deal with it. Providing a centre for support within a local hospital may be the right thing for local authorities to start a New Year. Counselling can help the patients to sort out different types of problems they may face while dealing with cancer, which is exactly why authorities should invest a certain amount of money for educating people for the purpose for helping the patients. Also, the government may finance various projects and workshops that will help those people divert their thoughts from the disease by channelling their energy into something creative.

• Children Without Parental Care

Unfortunately, more and more children nowadays lose their first line of protection – their parents. Many of them live in orphanages or other institutions with other children who are there because of the same circumstances. These kids do not need much to be happy. Investing some money from the local budget into constructing a playground for them is a great way to show that they are important, too. Tubes and tunnels, climbing walls, swings, seesaws and playhouses are just some of the elements that are required for building a perfect playground. Besides that, it can be painted in order to be both educational and entertaining. For example, you can paint a permanent hopscotch, so that all the girls can enjoy it without having to draw it every time they want to play. In that way they will learn the numbers, and the jumping will improve their motor skills. Another great idea is to use your practical cordless tool kit to build a tree-house with rope ladders and watchtower.

• People with Disability

It is well-known that people with disabilities, and especially those in wheelchair, often find themselves in very challenging situations as soon as they go outside of their homes. Local authorities should have that in mind when planning the annual budget, simply because there are so many things that need to be provided for these people. Ramps that will help them approach and enter any building and parking spots for the disabled are just some things to start with. Besides that, all of us should help those people and understand that even though they are slightly different – they are still humans as all of us.

Finding a way to help to people in need is actually what defines us as human beings. The amount of help is not important – it is essential that we recognize that there are many people around who are not as lucky as we are. As soon as we acknowledge that, the world will become a much better place to live.

Perfect Vacation into the Wild. By Guest Blogger Daniel R.

Perfect Vacation into the Wild

Urban living, long office hours, traffic jams and crowded places have an ability to wear you out and make you feel a bit stressed. When you become a little overwhelmed by everyday responsibilities, it is the perfect opportunity to take a break and get lost in the wilderness. Going on a little vacation into the wild you will be able to recharge your batteries and heal your mind, body and soul. After all, they say that nature is not a place to visit; rather it is our true home. So in order to maximize your experience, remember these few tips:

Organization

The first and the most important thing about planning a trip into the wild is organizing everything properly. Camping in nature requires a lot of planning and coordinating. There are a lot of things you need to consider, starting from what kind of equipment to bring, how to pack economically but also how to regulate your basic needs and requirements. Because of this, it is really important to create a detailed plan before you set out on your adventure.

Shelter

When you decide you want to go back to your roots and experience nature more deeply, there is no better way to achieve this then to set up camp in the heart of the wilderness. Whether you are camping in a forest, an already set campsite or perhaps some other area depends completely on your personal preference. Just make sure you set up camp on a somewhat flat, durable and safe terrain. For maximum comfort you will definitely need a tent, a sleeping bag and a thick sleeping pad. Improvised pillows and blankets are also a good idea, especially if you are camping somewhere colder.

Food

There is no need to limit yourself only on canned food and sandwiches. Camping in nature allows you to prepare food in an old-fashioned manner, which gives it a special flavor. Cooking in the wilderness is best done using wood and coal. Local hardwood like oak and maple will surely contribute to the whole outcome of the meal. Also in order to avoid cooking directly in the fire, consider making a simple grill using only a grill grate and some coal and wood.

Equipment

When it comes to camping, less definitely is more. This means that you should strive to find the best way to pack lightly, not bring unnecessary items but also make sure that you do not lack anything. This might sound a bit problematic, but it is not impossible. Every camper needs some basic things such as cooking essentials, shelter and bedding necessities, toiletries and clothes. Of course, there are a lot of other needed items like bug repellant, first aid kit and a Scoutgard camera, which great characteristics makes it quite practical for filming the most amazing nature experiences.

Hygiene

Just because you are in the wilderness, that does not mean you will have to neglect your personal hygiene. There are a few things that you must not forget to bring with you on the trip. Hand sanitizer, wipes and even some hydrogen peroxide accompanied with cotton balls, toilet paper and towels are a must-have. If you are camping someplace near a river or a pond it is always a good option to dip in the water. Also, there are travel size bottles of soap, shampoo and toothpaste that are quite practical for vacationing in the wild.

Edward Abbey once said that wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit. Going back to the basics is something that every person needs in order to get in touch with his inner self. A vacation in the wilderness helps you withstand the chaos of everyday living.

Once you find yourself in the world of business, you will realize that there is much more than just doing a good job that influences you and your company. It’s about many other factors as well, including advertising, observing the market, trying to beat competition, and keeping up appearances. It’s not just the way you dress that can determine whether you will sing the next contract or not, but the way your office looks too.

Sharp dressed men and women

It is not necessary to spend all your savings on acquiring designer clothes and pieces so you have no money for food afterwards just so you can look rich. You can achieve the ‘rich and sophisticated’ look without breaking the bank. Wear well-fitting clothes, and make sure every piece on you is clean and in good condition. What is more, you don’t have to wear pieces that have designer logos stamped all over them; designer clothes usually are discreet with their logo placement, but you should make sure all your clothes are of good quality and preferably from natural materials. In addition, you can find a tailor and have at least some items custom made for you – no better way to ensure your clothes are well-fitting.

The space you work in

What good is it to be dressed in the best clothes when you will be sitting in a broken down chair in a dusty office that even has no windows? You need your office to reflect the air of wealth if you would like to attract similar clientele. This means a comfortable couch and armchairs in the waiting room, classy office chairs around your desk, and an office desk made of high-quality materials such as glass, steel, mahogany, and marble. You should also make sure there is enough natural light and plenty of functional and stylish lamps which will make the best atmosphere. However, try not to make your working environment too sterile; make sure your furniture is comfortable, and have live plants and fresh flowers around to liven up the atmosphere.

The details that matter

Painting Fingernails

Remember, it is not just the way you dress and decorate your office that counts, it’s the way you pay attention to details and take care of yourself.

Dirty fingernails are repulsive unless you are a gardener or a mechanic, so manicure is a must. In addition, dandruff all over your shoulders and dirty hair will make you look messy and less professional. Clean hair or at least a hairstyle which will disguise the fact that you are dying to wash it will do the trick; and this is one of the reasons women love braids and buns. Having a few expensive accessories will make you look good and professional even when paired up with plainest possible clothes: good watch, designer sunglasses, expensive tie, or a discreet piece of jewelry.

Remember, keeping up appearances and always looking your best is incredibly important, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about other things completely. Always offer the best service, focus on professionalism, and be honest with your potential and regular clients and customers, as well as with your employers. After all, money doesn’t fall from heaven and you should make an effort and have a lot to offer before you get rich.

The Most Romantic Ways to Propose Your Girlfriend. By Guest Blogger, Daniel R.

The Most Romantic Ways to Propose Your Girlfriend.

When you think about it, there are only so many moments in everyone’s lives that deserve to be called truly memorable. And if you think a little bit more, all the places you were looking for them were wrong. Your favorite team winning the Championship or your favorite movie finally getting a sequel is certainly falling into this group. Your girlfriend saying the “Big Yes”, on the other side, will mark one giant milestone and change both of your lives for the better. So, with things as they are why you would not be a bit romantic and make this day pop up in your memories even more?

Propose Your Girlfriend at Her Favorite Place

It may be the house where she grew up, some museum or monument, the place where you first met, or the place you shared the first kiss. It really does not matter, as long as she holds it close to her heart. Once you are there, ask someone to take a picture of you two. Of course, instead of posing you will kneel and propose her. This way you should give the place she already considers important entirely new significance in her heart and make her very happy.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the New Year’s Eve

New Year marks the new beginning in everyone’s lives. Is there any more appropriate date than to propose your girlfriend than New Year’s Eve? To do this, virtually any place on the world will serve you just fine, but for the best effect, take her to some restaurant with a balcony or a view to an open sky. Wait until the midnight approaches, take her out and ask her to marry you. Give her some excuse to answer until midnight, and when she finally says “Yes”, share the romantic kiss under the glorious New Year fireworks.

Propose Your Girlfriend with a Building Sign

There are several ways to do that. For, example you can take your girlfriend to a picnic in the city park, and once you open up a champagne bottle, signal your friends in the nearby building to uncover giant “Marry me” building sign. Alternatively, you can arrange with a taxi driver to take a deliberate deflection from the route you are usually traveling together, and then stop somewhere building sign will be clearly visible, or rent the sign opposite to your favorite restaurant.

Propose Your Girlfriend in a Balloon

Take your future fiancé to a ride above your city, or some romantic landscape if that is what you prefer. Once you are high enough, and the whole world seems far beneath you, go down on your knees, take out the ring, and ask your girlfriend’s hand. Turning on some appropriate tune, can certainly do you no harm. Alternatively, you can fly above the gigantic “Marry me” sign which will be visible from your balloon only.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the Street

Although city streets do not look like too romantic backdrop for proposal, they give you enough freedom and a lot to play with. Ask a group of people to pose as bystanders and let them raise the letters forming “Will You Marry Me” when you signal them. Or you can stage a little performance spiced with street musicians playing your favorite song, and your friends popping up from their hidings with applause after she says “Yes”. Larger the scale, the better.

Although the wedding usually steals the spotlight as the most important moment in one pair’s together life, proposal still remains the most romantic one. Don’t allow it to become wasted. Instead, do your best to make it as memorable and nice as possible, so you and your future wife will always have something to remember in the quiet, romantic moments.

5 fluffy things you have to have. By Guest Blogger, Daniel R.

5 fluffy things you have to have.

 

People would agree that there’s nothing more beautiful than cue, fluffy things, especially if you consider that irresistibly soft and airy feeling they create at the lightest touch. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine how your fingers are gently passing through a pleasant downy texture or a fluffy item which slowly cuddles your face. The feeling is priceless and incomparably enjoyable. Loving soft, furry items is deeply connected with pristine instincts created during prehistoric times; that’s why we all love fluffy things so much. We offer you a list of fluffy items that everyone should have:

1. Velvety stuffed toys

When it comes to stuffed toys, it doesn’t matter if you are a mature person or a cheerful kid, because they are simply resistless. Plethora of nicely shaped and colourful toys, from fleecy teddy bears to woolly elephants in maxi size, definitely belongs to timeless items, so don’t hesitate to host one in your bedroom or in the corner of your sofa. Not only they will remind you of pleasant moments you enjoyed during your childhood, but they will put a smile on your face whenever you touch their soft surface.

2. A fluffy pet
Is there anything cuter from a perky cat with glamorously fluffy tail and soft fur? Well, probably not. So, regardless of whether you already have a pet or you’re just looking to welcome one into your home, a Persian cat which looks like a little ball of fur is definitely something what will fill your days with enjoyment and fun. Just imagine having a fluffy little creature in your lap during a cold winter, and you’ll wonder how you could ever spend your days without her. In case you are not fond of cats, that can be a dog or a rabbit, just make sure it’s the fluffiest thing you’ve ever touched.

3. Puffy home accessories
If you want your home to radiate an ever-present comfort and warmth, you should consider getting at least one fluffy home item. Think about woolly cashmere blankets that offer delightful warmth while it’s cold outside, or consider turning your after-bath moments into incomparable pleasure by using fluffy cotton towels. Kids are crazy about fluffiness, and some of the things you definitely should bring into your kid’s room are fluffy kids’ rugs, which provide an enjoyable softness under the feet and, of course, cosy warmth.

4. Cushy slippers
Your feet need a special treatment, especially if you have had long, busy days during the week. Fleecy and warm slippers are probably the most comfortable thing you can have on your feet while resting in your home, not to mention that there are a bunch of tremendously funny designs you can choose from. Depending on what you like the most, you can pick soft spa flip flops, lovely bunny slippers to match with your pyjama party outfit or puffy ones shaped as your favourite cartoon or comic book character. Whichever slippers you choose, one thing is sure – you’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds.

5. Funny and downy key pendants
You probably have a thousand keys in your purse or on the hook next to your entrance doors, and they are excellent for connecting with another fluffy item – a key pendant. The choices are endless here, so you can, for instance, pick lavishly fluffy ball keychain made of artificial fur or cute animal-shaped key pendants which can look very chic if attached to your bag.

Some things never go out of fashion which is exactly the case with those beautiful fluffy items. They will offer you pleasure, a tremendous dose of softness and an opportunity to say: “It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!”

Years ago you were a cheerful teenager with passion for energy and party time, and now when you’re an adult version of yourself with lovely family and comfy house, you sometimes find yourself longing for good old times of constant fun and nonchalant lifestyle. It’s not that your “totally family man” life is less interesting and enjoying, but it’s about seeing your teenage kids living the life to the fullest and you being nostalgic about the time when you looked on the world through the pink eyeglasses. Well, if this looks like something going through your head these days, it is perfect time to evoke your high school memories by trying again cool teenage adventures:

Stay young at heart

While you’re relaxing in your comfy backyard armchair, go back to the times when you and your friends had a high school rock band and every weekend was only about gathering together, playing good old rock n’ roll hits and having hilarious party time. Instead of being lethargic and dejected, why wouldn’t you give a buzz to couple of your high-school mates and suggest them re-establishing of your old rock band. Wipe the dust from your old-school guitar, agree weekend “rocking sessions” and feel how the adrenalin warms up your blood again. Even after you’ve become a parent, don’t forget to keep your inner child as well.

Well, yes, you’ll invest a bit more money into this “teen-spirited” project, but when you sit into your laid-back -style cabriolet, turn the music on and feel the breeze in your hair, you won’t regret a single penny you spent on it. Give yourself 5 minutes of high-school fame, recall irresistible teenage vibe and hit the roads, Jack!

Camp beside the lake

Gather your friends and organize relishing weekend camping beside the lake, just like you did during your high-school summer holidays, with campfire, barbequing and swimming included. It’s never late to remind your wife on how she felt in love with you, and long walks alongside the lake, lovely moments beneath stunning sunset are just perfect opportunities for that.

Brighten up your life

Instead of letting your days pass in monotony and routine, better enter more light into your life and feel the charms of afternoon sun by spending more time outside. You can let the sun embrace your living space even when you’re inside, so while considering replacing the windows with retrofit double glazing in order to get more light and refreshed ambient, think like an adult, not a teenager.

Forget about worries

Worries are only causing you to get older faster, so forget about them for a while and live just for the moment. Why wouldn’t you do the first silly thing which comes to your mind? Paragliding – why not? If you think out, it’s better to pay for adventure which will realize your dreams and bring the joy into your life, than gambling the money in the casino – although even that has certain charms, as long as you’re not overdoing it.

Even though it was said so many times before, but regardless how many years you have- remember that life is short and it’s never too late to live it to the fullest even if it means reviving your teenage self.
