Divorced? Here’s What You Need To Do Now

Divorced? Here’s What You Need To Do Now

Making the decision to get a divorce is never an easy one, particularly if there are children involved. You might have been trying to make it work for months or even years but to no avail. If both you and your partner are severely unhappy in your marriage, a divorce can be the best solution for everyone. But once you’ve come to an agreement, it can be difficult to know what to do next. Even though it’s the right thing to do, it can still be an emotional and overwhelming experience. So if you’ve just decided to get divorced and are unsure what to do now, follow these simple steps.

Talk about child custody

This is likely to be the most difficult conversation you will ever have. But it’s also the most important. You and your partner need to decide how you intend to continue providing care, time and support for your children. Consider how you can equally spend time with them, particularly over holidays, birthdays and weekends. Be realistic and always focus on your kid’s best interests.

In addition to this, you should also discuss how you want to break the news of your divorce to your children. Talking about this beforehand gives you time to prepare for their reactions. If you find it difficult to come to an agreement, get in touch with Gillespie, Shields, Durrant & Goldfarb or another family law firm.

Check your finances

Running a house will be different now you only have one source of income. You might have to survive on less and stretch your money further each week. The cost of getting a divorce can also be notoriously expensive. So one of the most important things you need to do is check your finances. Visit your bank and talk to your financial advisor about your current situation. They may be able to suggest ways in which you can save more money each month. This is also the perfect opportunity for you to set up a new bank account. If you think you might struggle, you should also start looking for additional employment. Download LinkedIn and other free job search apps to get started.

Decide where you will live

Another vital discussion you need to have with your partner is where you will both live. One of you might want to stay in the same property whereas the other might want to move out. Or perhaps both of you want to move out and sell your old home. Remember to consider your kids before making a final decision. If you do decide to sell, work out a fair way to divide the money equally. This is an agreement you should have witnessed by an attorney, as your property is likely to be the most expensive asset you have. This will ensure that when it is sold, no foul play will occur.

By following these simple steps, you increase your chances of having a more honest and amicable divorce. This can benefit not only you but your children as well. If you’re still finding it difficult to come to terms with your divorce, talk to a divorce counselor or your doctor.

We all want to keep healthy but often find it difficult to find the time around work and other responsibilities. But there are easy ways to keep fit and in good health that don’t involve hours down the gym on the treadmill. Nowadays, we’re more attached to our phones than ever. This can be a hindrance: you might spend hours checking your Facebook newsfeed when that time could be better spent on self-improvement. But you can also use new technology to your advantage. The health and lifestyle industry is booming, and there are now all sorts of apps out there that will help you to check and monitor your health. Here are a few of our favorites.

Personal Health Apps

Personal health apps can help you to check your symptoms without leaving the house. The Doctor App, for example, allows you to have a video or phone call with a qualified medic within minutes, check your symptoms in real time and have 24-hour access to healthcare support. If your symptoms aren’t severe or indicative of an emergency, this is ideal. It saves you searching your symptoms on a search engine and scaring yourself sick with horrific, far-fetched diagnoses. It will also help you to know whether you can care for yourself from home or whether you should seek further professional help. Remember, if you are experiencing chest pain, severe bleeding, fits or seizures, difficulty breathing or bouts of losing consciousness, call 999. These are emergency situations and no time should be wasted in getting them seen to.

Pedometer Apps

You have your phone on you all day. Your phone can track how many steps you take and how many flights of stairs you ascend and descend. It is recommended that the average adult takes 10,000 steps a day. So check how you measure up to this. You might find that you’re a lot more sedentary than you originally thought. If you are, take a stroll in the park after dinner. It’ll boost your steps, get some fresh air into your lungs and leave you feeling relaxed and healthier.

First Aid Apps

First aid is a skill that many of us lack. This is concerning. Basic first aid should be part of everyone’s knowledge. Download a first aid app to learn basic skills. For example, how to carry out the Heimlich maneuver, how to do CPR, take care of minor burns or scalds, minor bandage cuts and stop minor bleeding. These are all things that could prove life-saving in medical situations.

Mental Health Apps

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. There are mental health apps out there to help you. Some apps specialize in breathing exercises. Others offer basic cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques. Whatever your problem, there is an app to guide you through it. If you are worried that you could pose a danger to your own or other’s lives, you need to seek professional help immediately. If you can wait, arrange an appointment with your GP. If your issue is urgent, contact emergency services or phone 111 for advice.

Surviving a Long Distance Flight

Surviving a Long Distance Flight

pexels-photo-59519-large-jpeglink

Traveling to a new place is incredibly exciting, but long plane journeys can be tedious. You’re sat in the same spot for hours on end, you’re restless, bored and there’s probably a baby screaming its head off nearby- typical. Thankfully there are things you can do to make any long distance flight run as smoothly as possible. So you’re at your destination enjoying yourself before you know it!

Bring Lots To Do

While most flights will offer movies and entertainment, it’s so worth bringing your own stuff too. When tablets are so portable, bringing yours on board gives you endless opportunities. While in-flight wi-fi is still in the early stages, you could download plenty to watch and do before you leave home. You could download a full series to watch, a long flight gives you lots of time to really indulge in some tv. And we all know how quickly time passes when you’re watching something you enjoy! Plug sockets on planes are usually restricted to first and business class, although many will offer a USB charging port which is suitable for a tablet. So find out beforehand what’s available on your flight. If not, you’ll need to pack a couple of good quality portable chargers. You can play games on it, read books and if you invest in a Bluetooth keyboard you could turn it into a mini laptop and get some work done. While working might not be the most exciting, it will still keep you occupied. And when you have a long stretch of time ahead of you it’s good to make the most of it!

Get Some Sleep

There’s definitely an art to sleeping on a plane. But it’s well worth trying, even if you’re not sure if you can. It will make your journey go by more quickly, and you’ll be less exhausted when you reach your destination. If you have a night flight it will be easier, but even if you don’t there are ways around it. An eye mask to block out light and some ear plugs to block out sound should get you well on your way to drifting off. You could check out an ear plugs guide to work out which will be the best to go for. A supportive neck pillow is a useful investment for traveling, as if you do manage to drift off you won’t wake up with a cricked neck!

Pack Some Skincare

Flying is notoriously bad for your skin. If you find you end up with breakouts or dryness after a flight, there are things you can do on board. Remove your makeup using cotton pads and some micellar water, a gentle yet powerful makeup remover (bearing in mind you can only take 100 ml or less of liquids onto planes, so you will most likely need to decant this into a smaller bottle). Use a light, hydrating face mask to replenish the moisture and then follow this up with a moisturizer afterwards. You can always re-apply your makeup half an hour before you’re due to land if you don’t want to go bare-faced at the other end! A makeup bag with all of your essentials is a handy addition to your flight bag.

Mmmmm Is For Massage – Your Guide To Relaxation

Mmmmm Is For Massage – Your Guide To Relaxation

After a long day at work, there is nothing more soothing than doing nothing for a few minutes. Of course, what we face when we open the front door is a house full of hungry kids, pets and partners! If you find it difficult to grab those few minutes to yourself, then why not make it your resolution to change things? Here are just some of the ways you can relax and unwind each day:

Massage Chair – According to http://www.shiatsuchairs.net/, there are lots of different chairs on the market that provide a much-needed massage in the comfort of your own home. You can use them while you’re reading with the kids, watching the TV or catching up with your blog! Some are, of course, pretty pricey. Others are simply backed cushions you place on your regular chair. If you can’t get out of the house for a massage, then a massaging chair could be a great alternative.

Massage Therapies – There are dozens of different massage styles out there. If you can find the time each week for a regular appointment with your masseuse, then you could be on the way to a more relaxing lifestyle. Indian head massages, sports massages, Swedish massage – the list goes on! You and your partner could also take classes to learn how to do these things yourselves. It could become a regular thing you do for each other, like date night. Use essential oils to help you feel deeply relaxed and refreshed.

Yoga – It is possible to massage yourself with Yoga. There are several poses that could relieve tension in the neck, back and shoulders. Some say that Yoga can help massage your internal organs too. This might help relieve indigestion and other digestive disorders. Combined with special breathing techniques, Yoga can be ideal for helping you to relax. Best of all, it can boost your energy levels and focus too. There are plenty of online courses to get started. Why not book a weekly class as part of your ‘me’ time.

Bubbles – A bubble bath can be a wonderful way to relax and unwind after a tough day. Of course, if you have a jacuzzi bath it can be even better. Many jacuzzi baths have adjustable whirlpool jets that can be directed onto your achy areas. These can be ideal when you’ve been on your feet all day or overdone a workout. You can soak away all that tension and enjoy the scent of your candles too. Dim the lights, and enjoy a glass of something yummy.

Handheld – There are plenty of handheld or portable devices on the market that can target specific muscles in your body. Some are battery operated. They might add extra warmth and vibration to ease the tension in your muscle. Others are simple wooden roller balls that knead the area until you are soothed. They come as pillows, rollers, and even little mushroom shaped devices. If you have a bit more money, you could even buy an electric one that will heat up the area and may even prevent cellulite! How do you like to relax?

It’s Not Just About The Bling: How Your Personality Is Reflected In Your Engagement Ring

It’s Not Just About The Bling: How Your Personality Is Reflected In Your Engagement Ring

hands-587779_960_720Credit

It is becoming more and more common for a woman to be able to choose her engagement ring – and it’s probably a good thing. It’s nice to daydream about being proposed to and seeing the perfect ring, lovingly selected. But for too many women, it’s not a reality. They see the ring and think: “oh”.

This is not just a question of expense, either. Whether it’s classic Verragio rings or something more individual, it has to represent the person wearing it. Sometimes the style is wrong, not something they would pick for themselves. It may not be the kind of thing that will put the relationship in trouble, but it’s not what you dream of.

So now proposals can involve a dummy, costume ring which will be substituted for the real deal with the input from the future bride. After all, if you’re going to wear it for the rest of your life, it’s pretty important that you like it!

If you have the opportunity to have a say in your engagement ring, you’ve got a lot to think about…

  1. Metal Colour

There are several options for metals, split into three different types. While there are subtypes (a silver colour could be platinum, titanium or genuine silver), the colours are the dominant focus.

Yellow Gold – Perhaps the most traditional, yellow gold bands have been the staple of engagement and wedding rings for years. Choosing this will show your respect for history and adherence to how things “should” be done.

Silver (or silver-coloured) – Much more modern, these have soared in popularity over the last decade. This option makes you more practical, with feet more firmly in the contemporary world.

Rose Gold – Going through a period of intense popularity, rose gold is a softer version of yellow with an antique feel. A rose gold choice is somewhat whimsical and fun and suits anyone who considers themselves a free spirit.

Think about your colouring. If you have pink skin tones, then either gold is a better option. For olive or yellow skin tones, silver-coloured is much easier to pull off.

  1. Gemstones and Their Cut

fancy_cut_diamondsCredit

If you want to stick with the traditional diamond, then there are numerous cuts to choose from. Square cuts have been widespread in recent years; while oval and princess cuts have a more retro feel. Try as many different cuts on, even if you think you won’t like them – you never know what might feel “right”.

Stepping outside of diamonds is acceptable also, and a good choice if your budget isn’t high. It’s better to have a good quality stone of anything than a poor quality diamond. Some of the most famous engagement rings of recent years have opted for other gemstones. For example, the Duchess of Cambridge has a sapphire as the main focus on her engagement ring. So don’t feel it has to be a diamond; assert your individuality by going for something different.

  1. How Will It Fit With Your Wedding Band?

This is an important step to consider. The two will be worn in concert with one another, so they should be complementary if you wish to honor customs. Alternatively, stark differences – perhaps even different metals – signify the different life stages they represent.

Channel your inner diva wearing a one-piece swimsuit

By Guest Blogger, Diana S.

Channel your inner diva wearing a one-piece swimsuit

Channel your inner diva wearing a one-piece swimsuit
In a world of naked skin everywhere and on every occasion, paradoxically – bikinis have lost their power, simply because – all that skin is no longer as exciting a turn on as it used to be. Too much of anything can get pretty tasteless, and you’ll have to admit we’ve collectively hit the point of too-much-nudity a long time ago.
Naturally, everyone loves seeing a toned body flaunted around but then again – there’s a particular beautiful mystique about a half-covered body that’s still sexy enough to make your jaw drop. A one-piece swimwear is doing just that – it sparks up the imagination, it challenges one’s curiosity, it flatters both the body and the eye and it’s making things incredibly chic.
image-4-1From a standpoint of a woman – a one piece swimwear won’t get her as tanned as a bikini would but it’ll give her a sense of being in charge of her sexuality. Half-way covered but still looking like a beach goddess, a woman in a one piece swimsuit is everything and more.
To avoid the “momsy” look often associated with a one-piece, we’re giving you some amazing tips to choose your one-piece beachwear attire.
Make a statement with graphics
image-2Let your statement bodysuit do all the talking at the beach while you’re giving yourself plenty of time to sunbathe and enjoy your mango cocktail. A swimsuit with an attitude is your best ally against a jealous bikini-lover or a beach-neighbor who’d give anything to engage in a light conversation and ask you out on a date (even though you both know it would never work).
To stay on point and trend with your swimsuit, opt for a classic slogan or even something a little more Tumblr. Statements like “Dope”, “Woke up like this”, “Beach queen”, “Bae”, “Boss”, “One of a kind”, etc. will take things a little ghetto-glam, and instill you with such confidence. Just take a look at Kardashian-Jenner one-piece swimwear for inspiration – they rocked it this season!
Add straps and laces
There’s nothing wrong with a conservative form as long as you take it to the riskier side – lace-up details, crisscrossed straps, exciting colors and cutouts add a modern twist to the modest cut, making sure you’re never labeled boring or nun.
Choose punchy patterns/prints
Prints are awesome! The edgier, the better, especially if you are young and can let yourself indulge all kinds of nastiness (print-wise, of course! *khm*).
Opting for a swimsuit that’s photography-based, digital printed with neon colors or sports eye-catching designs will definitely put you in focus. Variety of patterns speak volumes, and the beach is the place to let your style shine!
Pick a retro-inspired suit
While your mom might’ve fallen victim to the trends of her decade, she had no choice; YOU opting for a retro suit is a statement rather than a trend-obligation.  Travel a little further back in time and choose body-flattering swimwear trends from the 60s and 70s. We bet you’ll look adorable yet provocative enough in nipped waists and drapey ornaments.
If the hourglass era doesn’t suit your body type, shop for one that does.
Stay cool with color blocked choices
Iimage-1-1n case you haven’t heard – minimalism and clean lines are the trademarks of the millennium. Color blocking options combined with a minimalistic approach to swimwear put a focus on your figure, enhancing everything about your body you want shown.  Colors have an amazing effect in visually re-shaping a figure, so if you’re straight-line but you are longing for a bit of curve, turn to color blocking for assistance.
To ooze an elegant, modern vibe, give yourself permission to step away from the sea of ruffles and gravity-defying straps everyone will be sporting at the beach; instead, opt for a sleek design – you’ll look like a work of modern art.
Enjoy your time at the beach and take the power back with your one-piece. You won’t regret it!

Worried About Your Husband? Top Ways To Support Him (Without Pushing Him Away!)

Worried About Your Husband? Top Ways To Support Him (Without Pushing Him Away!)

Although we hope that our marriage will be happy ever after, life isn’t like that. Couples face many challenges that can tear them apart. But just like you said in your marriage vows, you will be there for the through sickness and health. Therefore, whether it’s some kind of illness such as addiction or depression, you need to help them through this challenging time. Here are some top ways you can support your husband without pushing him away.

pexels-photo-large-2Pexels

Speak to him openly about your concerns

The first thing you should do when you are worried about your husband is to speak to him. Sit him down and explain calmly about why you are concerned. There’s no point shouting at him as it will lead him to become defensive and not be honest. He will just push you away and end up being even more secretive. Therefore, deal with the situation calmly and give him examples which caused concern. Make sure he understands you are not having a go at him, but you are worried and want to help. If he sees how much it’s affecting you, he’s more likely to be open with you. Let him speak and don’t respond until he gets everything out that he wants to say. Once you know what’s going on, you can find ways to move forward. Ask him how you can support him and let him know you are there for him.

Seek help for him and explain why

You might be worried about how your husband will react if you contact a doctor or a therapist about the problem. After all, they might be furious that you have got someone else involved in the issue. But for the benefit of your husband’s health, it needs to be done. Talk to him about why you have involved them and how you feel it will benefit them. After all, they need to agree to go to some form of addiction treatment center. Otherwise, they won’t benefit from it, if they are not willing to acknowledge they need help. Therefore, talk to him and help him to accept he needs help if you want to support him through this challenging time.

Voice your worries in a controlled environment

It might not be possible to sit down with him to speak about your concerns in your own home. If he’s currently taking drugs, you might not feel safe to talk to him about it alone. Therefore, you should arrange for a controlled environment where you can voice your worries for your husband. It might be in front of a friend or family member who can support you if necessary. After all, he might listen if it’s a mutual friend. Or if you feel this might put his back up, it might be best to speak with him in front of a professional. You can attend counseling together and then can explain your worries there. He’s more likely to take you seriously and let you support him if you deal with it in a professional environment. And once he seeks help, you can work with the counselor to get your marriage back on track.

Remember to give him compliments and praise when he gets the problem under control. It will spur him on to keep going in the right direction with his recovery!

Amicable Divorce: How To Make It Possible

Amicable Divorce: How To Make It Possible

You might think that an amicable divorce is impossible, and anybody who claims they had one is an enigma. The truth is, you can make amicable divorce possible. However, it may take a lot of work on your part. Here’s how to make it possible:

Understand The Repercussions of Blindsiding Your Spouse

If you’re blindsiding your spouse, you really need to understand the repercussions of doing so. You may have had a long time to mull this over and settle into the idea of not being with them anymore, so it may not be as difficult for you. You might be more than ready to start your new life as a singleton. However, your spouse won’t find it as easy. In many cases, they might think everything is just fine. When you blindside your spouse, you need to be prepared for a range of emotions to be thrown at you. You need to be prepared for insults and attempted arguments. It won’t be easy, but if it’s what you really want then you need to go through with it.

16246527741_f90841b744_zcredit

Prepare To Take Things Slow

Make sure you are prepared to take things slowly. Your spouse is likely already in shock. You’ll need to be prepared to have long, drawn out talks with them over what to do about the kids, your assets, etc. However, avoid these conversations at all costs at first. Your partner will likely be too emotionally charged and will make unreasonable requests.

154468706_dcc9edc443_zcredit

Be Firm But Understanding

Although you need to be firm with your spouse if this is definitely what you want, you also need to understand what they are going through. Listen to them. Don’t accuse them. You’re not looking to get into an argument or figure out whose fault it all is. This is your final decision, and you don’t need to get into it. Simply listen to them and try to understand them, but make it clear you won’t be changing your mind.

5247097960_3c2361c8ed_zcredit

Don’t Bite Back

As tempting as it might be to bite back when they insult you or say something provocative, don’t. They likely don’t mean anything they are saying right now, and just need some time to calm down. The more you can resist the urge to bite back and just take what they have to throw at you, the more chance you have of an amicable divorce. Remember the end result you want and stay strong.

Contact A Professional To Guide You

You may want to contact a professional to guide you if you’re struggling with this. Divorce mediators are good choices if your spouse refuses to speak to you or is being difficult in any way. Make sure you research the best in your area so everything goes as smoothly as it possibly can.

Remember to take the lead when it comes to your amicable divorce. Your partner may or may not do the things mentioned in this guide. Either way, make sure you act how you would like them to act, and it might not take them long to accept your decision.

Warning Signs Your Relationship Could Be In Trouble And How To Combat Them

Warning Signs Your Relationship Could Be In Trouble And How To Combat Them

Entering into a relationship can be one of the best feelings. Finding that one person you just connect with can be life changing. Of course, often these relationships turn into marriage and maybe a family. You expect to live happily ever after. But for some, that happily ever after feels like it’s over far too soon. This is because there are some cracks in the relationship that has started to surface.

Of course, sometimes this can happen. It might not be repairable when someone has betrayed or hurt the other’s feelings. Sometimes accepting that you need to call in the Divorce Services might be the right steps to take for you both to have your own happy ever after. However, not all relationships need to go down that route. With that in mind, here are some of the warning signs your relationship could be in trouble and what you can do to combat them. 14080770557_61219b30fd_b

Lack of communication

Communication is vitally important for a relationship to work. You are on the same team, and with that means, you are accepting of the other person. You take on their highs, but you also need to be supportive of their lows. Just like you would expect the same. Communicating is the one way you can be supportive. For the good and the bad. So talk about your days, talk about what is good and even talk about what is bad. You’ll feel better just knowing you have your support network ready to cheer or wipe away a tear.

No sparkle

Relationships after a while fizzle out. This is when it can take a little hard work to ensure you don’t lose that sparkle. Starting a family can dull that shine, as you both embark on a new journey. Just as work stress and other problems can have a knock on effect. This is when considering date nights and time alone together is important for keeping that spark alive.

Arguments not being resolved

Have you ever heard the advice not to go to bed on an argument? But yet for many of us, we don’t take that advice and often arguments can last days or weeks. If you are finding is harder to resolve these issues then you need to learn to talk it through. Or at least agree to disagree before the night is out.

Letting the past dictate your future

We have all made mistakes in the past or been hurt. But when you let that hinder your current relationship then you could be in big trouble. It’s easier said than tdonw, but try and remember to live in the present moment. This person with you now is not the one who hurt you in the past. You are much more guarded, but that doesn’t mean you will be hurt again.

Feeling more like friends than a couple

Finally, we can all get to a stage of a relationship where it feels comfortable. Almost like you are just friends than intimate. But again this is when hard work is needed to get your relationship on track. Harmless flirting and communicating can often be all it takes to relight that fire.

Don’t forget to be a team.

“We Get It, You Vape”. These words have spread across the internet rapidly over the past year or so. We’re seeing white clouds leaving people’s mouths in cafes and bars for the first time since indoor smoking bans were introduced. There are communities of individuals who meet to discuss vaping and socialize with other enthusiasts. Specialist stores are popping up here, there and everywhere. So how has vaping garnered so much popularity at such a fast rate?

What Is Vaping?

Vaping is when you inhale water vapour through a personal vaporizer. The act looks pretty similar to smoking, and you breathe out a white cloud that could be mistaken for smoke. vape_cloud_-_vaporizer_pen_24986934993

The Benefits Of Vaping

The main benefits of vaping are health benefits. Many people who vape have given up smoking traditional cigarettes and are using vaping as an alternative. Vaping offers these individuals with a way to smoke with fewer dangers. Vaping drastically reduces an individual’s risk of developing smoking-related illnesses such as cancer. Though vaping does supply the body with the highly addictive drug nicotine, it does so without producing smoke. As an alternative to smoking, it also removes individuals’ needs for dirty ash trays. It will not leave them with bad breath or a bad smell on their clothes and furniture. It also removes the risk of passive smoking for those around the individual. 22304947943_c674a8c3d4_b

Benefits also extend from general health and hygiene benefits. In the long term, vaping is much more financially viable than smoking. You will have to pay out initial costs for your personal vaporizer. But from then on, you only need to purchase e-cigarette liquids. These are much cheaper and longer-lasting than cigarettes.

Vapes are also much more convenient, especially in winter months. Vaping indoors is legal in most public spaces. As long as you are mindful of those around you, you are unlikely to experience the inconvenience of having to leave your table/workspace/, etc. to vape outdoors.

A large draw of vaping is also the novelty. The e-cigarette liquids are available in a multitude of flavours nowadays. Just check out specialist shops, such as https://vapeshoreditch.com/. Standard fruit flavours vary from strawberry to raspberry, banana and blackcurrant. There are sweet spices like cinnamon and flavourings like vanilla, and if you’re fond of menthol cigarettes, you might like to try out peppermint, menthol, or eucalyptus. Dessert-inspired flavours are proving popular. Favourites include chocolate fudge brownie, whipped cream, banana split and creme brulee. You can ever get festive with mince pie or Christmas pudding. Traditional sweet shops have given thought to rhubarb and custard, pear drop and cola cube formulas. For those fond of a drop of liquor? Try out rum, pina colada, mojito, or beer blends. Not very adventurous? Stick with standard tobacco.

A final novelty is cloud chasing. Cloud chasers are people who like to produce the biggest, most attention drawing cloud of vapour possible while vaping. Different vaporizers will allow these individuals to produce more vapour than your standard device. Cloud chasing has taken off so drastically, that there are even competitions for the cause being hosted internationally.
