White Tinsel Christmas tree

Now is probably the best time to buy a Christmas tree, the 1st of December as I have seen most of the shops are having a massive sale of up to 50% off. I actually bought one recently from Very , it is a lovely 6 ft white tinsel tree that has a shimmery light pink and green mixture. Regular price was £45 but I only got it for £22, which gives me a savings of £23!

The tree has a metal base, very sturdy! And the lovely white tinsel with light pink and green mixture would shimmer as the light hits the tree and with 100pcs blue led fairy light on (bought separately from the tree), it looks amazing!

This is how it looks as of the moment, I have not finished decorating it yet but I am very happy with it.

Travel and vacation

Traveling is something that I like and this graph shows some important information about travel, so I am sharing this with you. The fact that I also travel myself, I find this chat useful as this has the list of the most and top vacation places in and outside United States of America, so please feel free to have a glance.

This cleaver chart would definitely benefit those who are looking into a holiday/vacation or for school research purposes.


Keeping toddler's busy

Keeping toddler's busy is hard while you are doing house chores, but I have here some ideas you can try to keep your child busy. Graduates of educational leadership programs know how important it is for parents to interact with their children. The best thing to do is to get him or her involved in what you are doing, this way it would also help your toddler play and learn with you. Things like:

• When you are washing up the dishes, make her/him stand up next to you and wash saucepan lids. When you are doing this with your child, just be careful and make sure there is no sharp object on the sink that could harm her.

• When cooking, make sure that she/he can see you and talk to you as you cook.

• Buy a little vacuum cleaner so she/he can do a little pretend cleaning, while you are doing the real thing.

These are just a few examples but I am sure you will find more things you can do with your child. The important thing is that you are making it fun and interesting for your child and you get things done too.

Education by Country

Anything that would do well for someone is something that I do share here on my blog and that includes education. Now, on this blog post I have here a chart that would give you some knowledge about how education is valued from countries like U.S.A, China, Russia, France, Germany, and Japan. You will be surprise to see how different it is from one country to another as far a government spending, teacher’s earnings, and the rates of children and adult in and out of school. Anyway, I do believe that education is beneficial to everyone’s future and it should be worth thinking about, so take a glance on this graph and tell me what you think about it!

Adele: Someone Like You video

I got this video from YouTube, and I am re-posting this on my blog, because I think this song is amazing. Well done Adele!




Lyrics:
from: elyrics.net

I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it isn't over

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don't forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue, uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me, it isn't over yet

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don't forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes, they're memories made
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don't forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Woman's Military Plus Size Jacket

I am blogging about this as I feel I am obliged as I really think I got a superb quality and great looking jacket! The jacket that I am talking about is this Military Jacket by Taillissime at Roamans.com from their plus size coats and jackets collection. This jacket is made out of tough cotton material and fully lined too which will keep anybody wearing this warm on cooler days and cool on hot days. Remember, this jacket is made out of cotton, so if you plan of wearing this over on snowy days, then you better wear some layer of clothing inside before this, but above all, this really looks great!

What I love most about this jacket is that I could just wear this anywhere! I was actually amazed that the military style just easily mix and match with any of my outfit. Mind you, I am always on casual clothing, like trousers and jeans, but on one occasion I wore it over a blouse, skirt and black tights and I got loads of compliments from wearing it! It actually looks formal when I unbuttoned the collars, so I think I should wear it again over a skirt. Now the thing about buying this from Roamans.com is that it is far cheaper than any other online seller! As a frequent online shopper I have been very familiar with prices and for this kind of jacket you are looking at paying about $ 110- $150 plus postage, but on this particular website I only paid $89.99 plus postage, so I would recommend this online shop as well!

Proper Shaving: Tips on how to apply a shaving cream

I have been shaving my husband’s beards for about 5 years now and have tried many different styles from Goatees, clean shave to styling his beards and it always seems to have a good result and free from razor bumps! Now on this blog post I would like to teach you how to clean shave a long beard.

Preparation:

• First is to trim your beards using a clipper. Best if you can trim it for about 1mm.

• Then apply a generous amount of shaving cream to where the facial hair is using a brush or with your finger tips.

Procedure:

• Using a sharp razor, start a downward stroke on your face to about your Adams apple, stop to where your hair growth changes direction and do not shave against the grain.

• Keep the water running and rinse the razor often.

• Once you have done shaving downwards, shave upwards from your Adam’s apple.

• For those hairs under your Adam’s apple, go as far down as you want to shave and shave straight up to your Adam’s apple and stop.

• Finalize it by shaving sideward’s from ear to your nose or nose to ear depending on your hair growth.

• Rinse and pat dry.

• Then put an aftershave.

So there you go, a smooth clean shave!
