Spontaneous Things – The Best in My Life

By on March 15, 2017

I was coming back home from the office. It was a hard day and I’ve got tired a lot. My friend Kate called me and invited me to a BBQ party. Oh, thanks to the God, my prayers were heard. I have been dreaming about this for a long time and, finally, I was going to have a pleasurable time with my friends.  Anyway, I would go somewhere, because I was tired of city life and wanted to have fun with close people. Now I have such wonderful opportunity.

First of all, she asked me to help her with decorations, because I am well-versed with design. She has a Adirindack Cottage with a huge garden around, so there could be lots of interesting and creating ideas. The house was already styled and look great, but some features were missing, such as beautiful chairs and tables. Without any doubt,  we started looking for Adirondack chair. We were offered a wide variety of furniture in the Internet and couldn’t stop on only one product. However, Leigh County Adirondack Chair seemed to be the most suitable in our case. It was made from the cedar and was presented in a white color. What is more, these new chairs are extremely comfortable and my friend was delightful.  Even the price is low, the quality is  still the best and I am sure they will remain the same after years of using. 

Did you know?

The first Adirondack chair was created in 1903 by Thomas Lee, during his holidays in the Adirondack mountains in New York state. Typically, they were made from 11 flat, wooden boards, and the final product would include a flat backrest, as well. Now, the back is often (but not always) rounded, but the original spirit of the Adirondack lives strongly in these innovations, and in many other chairs that are based closely on its design.

When we finished redecorating our house the party has started.

My neighbors could hear the loud voices of my friends. The smoky smells of the food seemed to have spread and we breathed in the delicious aroma of meat and spices.

Unfortunately, the heavy rain prevented us from playing outdoors. We left our new furniture under the rain and my friend was afraid that something could happen with them. But she shouldn’t have worried, because those chairs were waterproof.

In the end, that event changed our lives. No one can deny, this party was amazing and we will have the same party in the future!

Less Stress with Comfort Cam

By on February 11, 2017

People seem to be more worried about buying technological equipment these days. And they are partially right, especially when we talk about the technologies that help us to take care of our babies. We should be more careful. Some old-fashioned people feel scary when they see cameras near children. They usually think that it may be dangerous and may affect children somehow, for example, children’s physiology. I use only tested and high quality equipment. I filter everything around my baby and try to give her only the best. I am crazy about healthy food, natural products, so I try to use less chemical things.

I don’t trust the internet. So, this time I asked for help. A good friend of mine was glad to help me with choosing a camera, which will monitor my newborn baby. He suggested me to buy the ComfortCam, because she has already used it and was extremely happy with it. She shared a link to the website, where I could learn more about this product. I’ve carefully researched the website and decided to buy the ComfortCam.
It was the love from the first sight. I placed it in my daughter’s room and my friend explained me how everything works. She assumed that it is safe for my baby. That was the most important argument!
It is suggested to download a specific app to your phone in order to monitor your baby from the other rooms, or whenever you are. Finally, when everything is installed, I can feel myself more relaxed, so that I can rest a little. While I am lying in another room, Wifi baby monitor controls every movement of my girl and I can hear her.
This camera is easy to care for. Like any other camera, you may need to clean the lens and check the batteries occasionally. Also, you should keep an eye on the amount of used space by videos on the SD card, so you don’t lose any important footage in case the storage is full. Don’t worry to lose your files, because you can always transfer the recorded video from the camera to your computer or other device.
Well, I have been using ComfortCam for a long time and things are still fine. Of course, I had some problems, but I managed to solve them. In my opinion, the ComfortCam is a must for every young mother. It will definitely make your life easier and more colorful. Only imagine that you’re always with your kid, whenever you are!

Great Finds From A Sale: Books On Real Estate Marketing, Crochet, and More

By on February 3, 2017

This blog post isn’t not your ordinary book review article just like what I always do here.

Let me tell you a story first. As I was on my way back home from the grocery store, I saw a garage sale at a corner two streets away from the neighborhood. I intend to just pass them by as I know garage sales just put old clothes, hand-me-downs of every sorts, and other old house materials like kitchen rack or a wooden stool are up for sale. However, a pike of old books caught my attention, causing me to stop on tracks and eye on them for a couple of minutes. As you know, I am a book lover. Its scent, its aroma tickles my nostrils and I get very giddy upon the sight of books waiting to be picked up.

I excitedly sorted the old books out. Carefully, I look in awe as I saw a lot of hardbound ones, magazines, pocketbooks, and dictionaries. I saw another girl who must have also got interested in the sale and we were both scanning the array of books for sale in no time. We were both excited to scan the books in the area that we even forgot it has other customers too who might have been distracted by the pile of books.

I already have some copies of the books that are for sale. I have Charlotte Bronte’s books already, a few reads from Janet Evanovich’s series, Dan Brown’s paperbacks, and even a couple of Nicholas Sparks read. In the side were old stacks of magazines and newsletters.

They have Reader’s Digest back issues too, In Style, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, as well as old issues of celebrity gossip magazines. Aside from novels and dusty old magazines, the pile of books also has textbooks from high school and college, which for me are perfect as I am about to enter college a year from now. Whoever must have owned them was obviously such a voracious reader just like me.

I bought books on farming, accounting, journalism, creative writing, real estate marketing, and even how to do crochet at home! I was really stunned when I saw the book sale that I completely forgot I have an afternoon date with my pal Therese in the nearby ice cream store.

I considered buying a few magazines but I thought of the many copies I bought before that I haven’t opened up. Mom will be very furious if she find out!

Good thing also I did not left my purse at home so I was able to buy the books. They only cost $15 all in all! What a good deal! I plan to come again this weekend together with my sister. I am sure she will love it. I am not just not aware when the garage sale will be closed but I hope I still have time to go there before it closes.

I will never look into garage sales the same way again after I bought books from there. Truly, you’ll find treasure in hand me downs, and even in ways and circumstances you never expected.

What To Consider When Creating An App

By on February 1, 2017

What is your reason why you want to create an app? Is it because your business may gain a lot more sales when you delve into app development? Are your target consumers also users of apps?

Here are some of the things you should consider for your app development and app marketing strategy:

  1. Know your audience

What is the demographics of your audience? Are they young? Old? Or are they mothers or housewives? You need to find out the profile of your target consumers so you know where to focus on for your app marketing strategy.

2. Effectivity

Is the app effective? Is it helpful? Can it answer a pressing problem of one community? Is it easy to use and navigate? Dwell on these factors first before you start creating the app.

3. Have it reviewed before launching

You do not want to have negative feedback from users who downloaded the app. First, you have to have it for review. Submit them for review in various websites which do the work. Or better yet, test them yourself or let your friends do the critic.

Check this infographic to know more about launching and developing your app. Hope this helps and good luck!

360 CAMARAS FOR MAKING VIRTUAL REALITY

By on January 20, 2017
360 camaras

Virtual reality really changes lives:

There has been a revolution in the technology over the past few years and one of the big game changers has been the development of 360 cameras. These cameras are opening a new age of virtual reality. Allowing people to experience virtually anything. It’s actually giving people a chance to be at the places where they have never been. Like I always wanted to try scuba diving but never got a chance(sadly!). But recently I experienced diving with virtual reality and that was a really awesome experience.

360 cameras and virtual reality:

360 cameras are really taking virtual reality to the next level. I have been writing about 360 cameras in the past few days like best 360 camera and “top 3 360 cameras”. Today, I was just seeing the sunset and it was beautiful. That orange flare on the sky( as it was on fire). That sun playing hide and seek with some thin clouds. Moving down slowly as it’s gonna kiss the earth. What I felt at that moment was it’s not fair to capture such amazing view in just a flat picture. There must be something that could capture all of it that blood red flare, that sky, and that beach shining by the rays of dying sun.

That was the moment my 360 camera came into action(luckily!). I took my phone( 360fly 4K HD) out and shoot that moment. That was the moment of my day. This camera seriously made my day. In “the past” I have written a review article on this camera as it is best for me. I have also talked about “top 3 cameras” so you can choose which is best for you.

Sunset:

360 camaras

 Coming back to the topic that sunset was recorded in my memories as well as in my camera. So, whenever I want to enjoy it again just I have to open my phone’s gallery and there it is, right in front of me. That’s the power of virtual reality. I am getting addicted to it, it has become a part of my routine life.

 A Dream cames true:

camaras 360

Deep sea diving has always been my hobby. I just always wanted to experience that water everywhere(OMG!). Even thought of being in deep sea caused chills to me. I have been its fan since forever. But never got any chance to experience it. You know it was like some of those desires buried deep in our heart. I was wondering probably someday I would get that chance(someday!). Fortunately, that lucky day came in my life(Not really lucky, but lucky enough). Virtual reality made it real for me.

Virtual reality made that dream true for me. I experienced diving by a spherical video made by a 360 camera. It was just wow!. All that blue water and sun rays filtering from the water surface and those colorful fishes. That sight was mesmerizing. It felt like real and suddenly from that dark water, a whale came out of nowhere. I was just shocked! Thank God I wasn’t there.

The point is we all have that wishes and desires which we have buried in our hearts. We should never get hopeless there is always a chance. As long as you are breathing there is a chance of getting what you want. Never ever get hopeless. Life is out there and it’s waiting for you. You just have to live it. Take your dreams and live them. And if you have a dream like going to some beautiful place or visiting something like experiencing gliding etc. Virtual reality can really help you out.  As it has helped me.

If you are already living your dream then capture all of it in a 360 camera. As it allows you to live those moments again.

If you have such an experience of virtual reality. I would love to hear it from you. Stay safe and enjoy your life. And Good luck with your dreams.

A Brief Guide to Stock Photography

By on January 6, 2017

So, the internet is a wonderful thing. I love writing blog posts, and I’m grateful every day for what I do and the fact that I have an attentive audience who is willing to read it. So, I want to start this post by thanking you for being so receptive and amazing. It really comma despite the amazing amount of great things here on the internet, there are some resources that always seem to be lacking. It’s so annoying, because there are so many great versions of the exact same thing, and then so many things that only have mediocre resources. It’s a trend I notice a lot, like the fact that there are so many amazing platforms for building websites and blogs, so many email browsers that are totally effective, a lot of different ways to consume media, but, somehow, there is not a single stock photography website that satisfies me or any of my other bloggers friends. I’m serious, it’s a totally real thing, no matter how hard we have looked, we have not been able to find a stock photography website or resource that has satisfied us.

This is a big deal. If you’re not familiar with stock photography or its purpose, I’ll briefly explain it to you. Stock photography databases are big resources filled with photos that have been contributed by different photographers and websites and things like that. When bloggers make a blog post, you’ll notice that we almost always attach an image.

That way, if it’s shared on social media or something like that, there is a picture that goes along with the article. In a perfect world, that picture would always be engaging and interesting, as we are completely sure, and it’s been scientifically proven actually, that humans are famous for judging a book by it’s cover, and only reading something if it’s, for whatever reason, appeals to them by how it looks first.

So comma allow me to now, allow me to bring a note of positivity to this post, so it doesn’t seem like I’m just complaining. I was just trying to give context, gosh. Anyway, recently one of my fellow bloggers pointed me in the direction of EyeEm and it was absolutely eye-opening, no pun intended. I was so happy with these images, that I actually paid to have premium membership on this site, and now I am living a life full of abundance of images, images which I love, too attached to the articles that come from my mind and my heart.

Yes, it’s a big deal, and I’m very grateful that I now have a great source first  Stock Photos

What To See And Do In Vancouver

By on November 16, 2016

So,  in case you didn’t know, I actually just took a little trip up to Vancouver. Vancouver it’s a Canadian city and it’s a real gem. Lately, Vancouver keeps being listed on collections of the best cities in the world, and now that I visited it is totally easy to see why. Vancouver has the best of the American Pacific Northwest, combined with the best things about Canada and their values. It’s like nowhere else I’ve ever been, except I guess it’s a little bit like Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco but it is also way different. It’s hard to describe. However, what’s not hard to describe is the best things that I did when I was in the city that made me the most satisfied. So, in case you’re ever planning on heading over to the Canadian West Coast Capital, here are some tips and hints that will help you enjoy your trip.

  1. Nature. Vancouver is one of those amazing cities that has all sorts of natural elements. Well, I guess I shouldn’t say “one of those cities” because quite frankly I’ve never experienced another city like Vancouver in this way. In the same day you can climb a mountain, go to the beach, and take a walk in the rain forest. If you’re there in the winter, there is amazing skiing that you can do as well, and places to go skating. This is totally unique and it is one of the most Charming things about Vancouver, because it is a super Urban City that gives you the natural wonders that most cities deprive you of.

  1. Food. The food is absolutely incredible. Especially the sushi. I think that it has a lot to do with the amount of people from the continent of Asia, but there are all sorts of amazing Cuisine options. Like I said though, the sushi is very inexpensive and very high quality, it’s about as good as I’ve ever gotten on this continent!

  1. Consider buying real estate. Okay okay hear me out, maybe this is just me, but when I really fell in love with this city like this– I feel I would gently consider investing in a piece of property. I called a Vancouver Realtor about this, and explain that I was only a potential buyer, but he was super nice about it and decided to show me some properties that were in the price range that I quoted. Mostly, he showed me Burnaby condos for sale. Burnaby is right beside Vancouver, it is also a big city, and it is connected to Vancouver with all sorts of public transit and things. It’s basically the same city, but it actually has some features that are better than the city itself.

harry potter & the deathly hallows part 2

“I solemnly swear I am up to no good.” It’s hard to believe that the end has come and gone, but what an end it was. Like the crazy fan I am, I went to the midnight premiere with my sister, our best friend, and her mum. We waited in line for three and a half hours in order to get a good seat (we ended up first in line for our showing!)! It was absolutely and completely worth it. Walking out of the theatre afterward, I was unsure how I felt about the film. It was just so big and huge that it was hard to process, not to mention the fact that it was about two-thirty in the morning. Anyhow I had a hard time focusing and creating any cohesive thoughts about it, so I decided to wait until I saw it a second time before writing out how I felt.

Breaking Beautiful Blog Tour – Character This or That

By on

Today, I am welcoming Andrew of Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf, to give his answers to a list of this or that pairings!

Night or Day: Night. I’m kind of a night owl. I get my best work/thinking done long after my mom thinks I should be asleep.

 

 

 

Rain or Snow: I’m going to have to go with rain. Have you ever tried to maneuver a wheelchair in the snow?

Winter or Summer: SUMMER.  ALL THE WAY. I don’t like to be cold or wet and as I said, getting around is lots easier when the weather is nice. Besides, when it’s warm outside I have an excuse to take off my shirt and show off my amazing abs.  J

Movie or TV: TV. It’s just easier. I can stay home, have the snacks I want. Have Caitlyn curled up on the couch next to me. Pretty much anything I want to watch will eventually be on TV right?

School or Work: School. I could learn forever. Maybe I’ll be a professional student, or a professor.  Going to work all the time and dealing with real life kind of scares me.

Dogs or Cats: Dogs. Allie has this really annoying cat that gets hair everywhere and makes me sneeze. Also, it likes to wrap itself around my legs and trip me or get under the wheels of my chair. If I told Mom I know she’d get rid of it, but Allie loves the stupid thing. We’ve never had a dog so I don’t really know that they’d be better, but I’m pretty sure I’d rather have a dog.

Party or Solitude: Solitude (or one or two friends). It’s not that I don’t like being around people, it’s just that the bigger the crowd, the more likelihood that there’ll be someone there who’ll stare at me or make fun of me or is just generally be a jerk. Besides, it’s hard to get around in a big group. (Do I say that a lot, well, mobility is kind of a big issue with me.) I have a few close friends, we get each other. We have each other’s backs. That’s the way I like it.

Truth or Lie: Depends on how much trouble I’ll get in. J Naw, truth. Usually I’m a pretty straight forward guy. Telling lies is a good way to make yourself miserable.

Love & Lost or Never to Love: Love and lost. Even if things don’t work out with Caitlyn I wouldn’t ever want to miss out on that experience.

Giveaways!!

We all love giveaways, no? Personally I love not only entering giveaways, but also hosting them. Giving books away is almost as thrilling as winning books. Everyone goes about entering/hosting giveaways in different ways. Sooo…this is a post that is exploring how I feel about various ways of entering and I am also seeking your opinions.

1. How to enter

Comments: Some people have people enter for giveaways via comments on a post, on average I do not mind this system. However when it is required to make multiple comments for any extra entries I think it gets to be a little bit crazy.
Google Forms: Personally, I prefer this option above the rest. It’s just the easiest, cleanest looking choice. I do really like these, very simple both to create and to fill-out.
