Designing Your Bathroom

A beautiful home not only consists of a good design and architecture of the whole house but of the stylish interior design as well. This is the reason why those who can afford to hire interior specialist get their services because it takes a good one to go into details of designing every inch of the rooms in the house. My brother is lucky that besides being an Engineer he’s also good in interior designing that his clients always commend him for his finished projects. He’s even recommended to their friends who need design and construction services. He never runs out of project because his finished projects serve as his model houses for his future clients. 

As such he continues to update himself of the latest trends and designs in home interiors as his clients always demands for better and fresh designs from him. I also learned from him some points in home designing like the importance of walls, ceiling and flooring in your home as it defines the basic of the home interiors. From these three important parts of your house you can make a significant change and create style. You can define the look you want for your house like conventional, modern, and stylish or anything that you want. 

 When you design the rooms in your house like your kitchen or bathroom you should always remember that it should answer your specific needs. Designing your bathroom isn’t just choosing the accessories that comes first on your mind or because you like the design.   Each accessory  should compliment all other designs in colors,  style  and  theme.  The most important thing is selecting the right  bathroom tile that will fit your lifestyle and the designs that you want. 

There are various tiles to choose like porcelain, ceramic, slate, stone, glass and vinyl. Porcelain is known to be the best tile to use in your bathroom but it’s costly and difficult to install. Ceramic is a good alternative if you can’t afford porcelain and so are the other choices. Each has its own properties that will be able to help you choose which suits your requirements and kind of living.


A True Friend Tells You What You Need to Hear

I have many friends that I met along my life’s journey through school, various jobs that I was employed, church mates, online friends and many others.  They’re all a part of me but there are few that I love the most like my own sister.  These best friends know me inside and out and would never do a thing to make me feel sad, make me down-hearted or make me do foolish things.  They love me as I am and would never hurt me in any way.  

But love also corrects as the friends closest to my heart would never let me hear what I want to hear but what I need to hear.  Friendship is not just complimenting or loving each other but giving the real opinions if there’s a need.  If I’ve gone wrong I would want my friend to tell me I was wrong because that will make me a better person.  A person that realizes mistake and wrong doings will make all efforts to change for the better with God’s help.


Air Conditioning and Heating System Services

With the sudden changing of the weather from hot to very cold temperature people have to adjust them because it’s not a normal occurrence. Since we’re not accustomed to such weather sickness occurs in great numbers.

It’s good to be prepared for whatever you’ll come into but still it doesn’t guarantee that you’re not going to be sick.

Time for all the Things I Want

Source: via Race on Pinterest

Just having real serious thoughts about my life, my work and all the things I want to do.  Maybe when you come to your 40s you really think about doing what you love most.  When I retired (that's what I thought) in 2009 to look after my kids and Mom I also concentrate on being a full-time blogger.  Since writing and blogging are two of the things I love doing it's so perfect to do it while taking care of my family. I did for two years before I was offered to come back to corporate work and my life changed again.

Returning to work after tasting the life of work at home Mom wasn't easy at all.  I must admit I miss the office world because I've worked for 19 years before I retired.  I missed rushing to office, talking to clients, answering emails, administering office tasks, doing human resource job, making proposals and the likes.  I was used to multi-tasking and experienced being in personnel, accounting, billing and technical departments. I also miss being with my colleagues and easily made friends again. 

But now realities are setting in again.  I could see my Mom getting older and finding the need of a companion in the house.  I'm not the same person who love office work too much that I can stay not just over time but over night as well.  I've changed and my thoughts easily wanders from office back to home  and what I should be doing than working in the office.

Suddenly I feel the urge to read more books, to have more time with my Mom when the kids are in school and she's alone in the house, to cook more, to be professional in baking and most of all to write more of my thoughts.  I pray to God that He'll give me signs and providence so I can leave the corporate world again for the second time....and hopefully for the last time. I know He will...I have faith He will.


Shopping for Little Gifts

It’s fun shopping for the things you want not only for yourself but for others as well. I know the feeling because I love shopping for my family and friends. I’m just a little pressured when my time isn’t enough to choose the perfect gift. It takes me a long time to walk around the mall stores to look for my gifts and at times I really don’t have time. 

This is the reason why I started to learn and to love shopping online. It’s not only convenient but more affordable because you get to search and compare the things you want to buy before you purchase it. It’s easier to compare and look for the sites that offer better deals and discounts. Oh how I love to visit my favorite gadgets store as it always updates its site with the latest technology stuff I love with a competitive price I cannot find on offline stores. 

Now I found another site for little gifts and gags which offers unique, fun and novel products from baby things to tech toys and a lot more. Spencers offers home & dorm which includes lava lamps, collectible figures, glassware, technical stuff and other home accessories. It also provides things for fun and games like books, games and puzzles, birthday, humor and a lot more fun things. It has other products like things to wear, accessories, jewelry and gifts. I particularly liked the foam fountain optical illusion and water show speakers which are amazingly beautiful.

Experts on Estate Planning

It has been a common knowledge that properties are sensitive issues to tackle especially to very rich families. I’ve heard some stories of feud in the family because properties were not distributed properly or were not given in fair and equal amount. There are debates on this as to who will benefit from the ancestral house or who will take over the ownership and management of a family business when the senior member has passed away. 

It’s very delicate to talk about when the owner or the head of the family is still living as children should only be thankful for whatever is left on his/her name. This is the reason why rich families always have their last will testament to state the owner’s desires and decision on who will take over certain businesses. I know that whatever it is we should respect the last will of the owner. They usually know what’s best for their children and they know better what to give them. 

Well if you’re into this situation of thinking deeply who is going to help you on distribution of properties, money and everything of value. They should hire a lawyer like Estate Planning Attorney Tempe AZ to take care of your signed will and manage the announcement of property distribution. An experienced and knowledgeable estate planning counsel will provide assistance in governing assets, personal wishes of the owner and the guardianship as well. 

Hiring the legal services of professional and experienced lawyer like Estate Planning Attorney Tempe AZ  will most likely guarantee that all wishes and objectives in your property and assets distribution will be executed perfectly. Since the laws differ on places it’s best to get one with years of experience in all kinds of estate planning to be able to come up with the right approach in planning your estates.


Refreshing Home Design Ideas

One of my brother’s residential projects is on its finishing stage and he’s excited about his design on the kitchen. He has already installed built-in oven and in the process of polishing cabinets. He added some undermount drawer slides full extension on the cupboards so he can show it to the owner if that will suffice to the required specifications. His client is a little bit conventional on some designs and he needs to check if those installed accessories and equipment conform to his taste.

Well my brother’s designs are always commendable and suits the needs of his client that he’s always referred to their friends. Now that his daughter is taking up Architecture he has someone to help him come up with new fresh home design ideas. In fact his current residential design was made by his daughter and it was well accepted and praised by his new client. We’re glad that some of my brother’s kids have the same flair and inclination as his.


Learning to Play Acoustic Guitar

My daughter Gen is learning to play guitar so fast that I now believe playing musical instruments really runs in our blood. My grandfather was a great musician in his time playing alpha on their town’s special occasion. Last month my sister gave my kids an acoustic guitar for her Christmas gift and they started strumming and learning their new toy as they lovingly refer to their new musical instrument. 

Now my kids have so much in their hands to fill their time when they’re not in school as they also plays keyboard and lyre. I heard just yesterday that my little boy is asking about electric guitars like the squier electric bass at musicians friend he saw online when I was searching for some musical accessories. I wouldn’t be surprised if he asks me to buy electric guitar these coming days but it will have to wait for some time as I want them to learn acoustic first.


My Party Hat

Last month we had our costume party for our company Christmas celebration and I’ve chosen a cowgirl costume for myself as I didn’t have time to ask my friend to sew me a Red Riding Hood costume. I know that making that costume would cost too much time and money so I turned on the other costume. It was rather easy for me to get and prepare the costume because my sister had it already on their last year’s party. 

The costume clothes were ready before the needed accessories so I just bought a nice leather brown sandals and search for a cowgirl hat that would make me look like one. When I went to the nearest mall to our house I immediately found a nice hat which looks like Western Hats to me but I bought just the same. When my daughter saw what I bought she immediately love the hat and whispered that after the costume party she’ll take the hat. Actually before the party ends it’s her who is wearing the cowgirl hat because she likes it.

Innovative Way of Cleaning Equipment

I’ve never worked in manufacturing companies that deal with big equipment in large scale production, but I know about it because my friend has been employed as an Engineer in one of these companies. It’s a different field from what I’ve worked in, and when she talks about it I listen because I'm interested in knowing what goes on in those big manufacturing companies I pass everyday as I go to work. These factories take up a huge amount of work space which makes me think about how precious that equipment must be. 

Being in that kind of industry gives you an insight of how big their responsibilities are in regard to keeping up with the care and maintenance of such very expensive machines. My friend updates his records daily, taking notes of small defects requiring immediate repairs. The equipment should also be cleaned periodically depending on the scheduled cleaning maintenance of each individual piece of equipment. Such cleaning will not only enhance the performance of equipment but will help on the durability as well. 

Each machine should be handled with care and cleaned thoroughly without damaging the efficiency, especially on electric motors and equipment with electric, pneumatic or hydraulic components. It should be ideally cleaned with the use of dry ice cleaning. It provides the ideal process of using dry ice blasting which replaces high-pressure cleaning and unsafe blasting methods. 

It’s a dry ice blasting revolutionary method that uses small, compact dry ice pellets as material. I should Tweet this to inform my friends of such innovations. The pellets are accelerated in a jet of compressed air which is ideal for removing dirty elements like varnish, grease, adhesives, soot, mould and others leaving it dry and clean. It avoids the use of hazardous chemicals and solvents which is also helpful to our environment. Best of all it, can clean equipment even while it is in operation!

Useful Tips on Buying Used Cars

Most of the times we love to spent our rest days in MIL’s house to be able to relax from the bustling city. In all of our travel we rely so much on our car for bringing us safe and sound to wherever we want to be. In the old times it’s not always necessary that you have your own car as riding cabs is not that expensive and riding in other commuter vehicles is so easy. Nowadays it’s more of a necessity than a luxury to own a car so a family with several kids like us must own at least one car to be able to enjoy going to places and for everyday use bringing the kids to school. 

Since it’s really needed nowadays we should be able to provide ourselves a car for our family’s use. Now it’s easier as we don’t have to spend so much on brand new cars if we can’t afford it. There are plenty of pre-owned cars available in the market where you can choose your preferred style and brand of car without hurting your budget that much. In choosing and buying used cars there are some points that we can follow to assure that we will find a good buy. Be sure to check out vehicle history report to know the major accidents it has gone through. It’s also good to know the vehicle reputation and the average price so you’ll know if the car you want to buy is overpriced or fairly priced. 

Ressler Motors has the largest selection of Used Cars Bozeman where they undergo their car to a 110 point inspection and road test to ensure that their clients are getting high quality used vehicles. Even then it is suggested that before buying the car a careful visual inspection should be done. We should check the color and level of the oil, test the transmission, check the thread of the tires and the look of the brakes. Lastly be sure that the alignment is right. Upon finishing all the inspection and checkup you’re now ready to buy your used car.

His Motor Riding Collection

My friend is so obsessed with motor riding that whatever he saves from his salary he gets himself collection of valuable motorcycle accessories and some other gadgets or apparel for riders. He’s not so much into buying things for himself except for his riding hobby and it seems worth it because when you look at his collection in his house you’ll be amazed at his patience in saving for his coveted items. He’s really deeply engrossed in his riding collection that sometimes he forgets about other things like his office clothes and other things that do not involve motor riding.

Now he’s into competition and fox racing so he’s looking for the best quality helmets, apparels, jackets, boots and other accessories. He didn’t want to use his collection so he’s buying another set for the competition. I’ve suggested some online sites for him for easy shopping and hope he’ll be patient enough to search and choose what he needs for the competition.


New Room Arrangement

As the year ended and a new one comes along we found the need to let go of some of our old things to save our house from having too many clutters and unused things. The junk man was so happy to receive huge amount of things to buy and sell. We gave some of the things that’s still usable so some people can benefit from them. It feels great to let go of old things and we will do it again next summer vacation to make way for the planned renovation of the second floor. 

My sister searched for TV stand with mount when she arranged the room because she realized that the old stand is too large for the room. She wanted it badly that she bought the day after. She’s happy with the results because their room look more spacious now.
