Preparing Your Home Ready for the Winter

It may still be August, but it won’t be long until the days start to become shorter and the nights longer as the cold weather starts to creep back around. Even though here in the UK we don’t often get a lot of warm weather, the winter months can be significantly colder, with frozen pipes and draughts becoming commonplace for many homeowners. Thankfully, we’re at a time of year that’s perfect for preparing your home to be able to withstand the upcoming colder months, and there are many simple things that you can do to ensure that your house is a cosy haven of warmth, even on the coldest winter days.

Upgrade Your Heating

Upgrading your heating system is definitely a good idea when it comes to preparing your home for the winter, especially if your boiler, heaters and radiators are looking a bit worse for wear and haven’t been updated in a while. Upgrading your heating system not only means that you’ll be warmer at home during the winter months, it can also mean that you’ll save money on your energy bills over the winter due to a higher level of energy efficiency. For radiators, heated towel rails and more, see warmrooms.co.uk.

Check Your Insulation

Since around a quarter of the heat in your home is lost through the roof, having good loft and wall cavity insulation when the winter months come around is absolutely vital. If your home already has insulation, it’s a good idea to have it checked before the winter to make sure that it is not showing signs of wear and tear or causing any unnecessary heat to be lost. Insulation in the walls and around the pipes in your home is also absolutely vital during the winter as this will help to prevent any pipes from becoming frozen and bursting during colder weather.

Clean Your Gutters

One of the biggest causes of leaks during the winter months is clogged gutters. As the summer starts to draw to a close, trees will begin to shed their leaves leaving gutters and drainpipes filled up with loose foliage. Once the blockage starts to become too much, water begins to pool, backing up into the guttering and leaking into the roof and down the walls of the house. Before the winter sets in, having your gutters thoroughly cleaned to ensure that they are free of debris is essential to prevent damage.

Draught-Proof

There’s nothing worse than a chilly draught when you’re trying to relax in your heated home during the winter, so make sure that you’ve checked the edges of your windows and doors for any cracks that draughts could sneak through. You can either get draught excluders or adhesive draught slips to cover the cracks and keep the cold air outside where it belongs, keeping you nice and warm and reducing the amount of energy escaping from your home.

It may not be winter yet, but it’s never too early to start making sure your home is fully prepared to be nice and warm when it gets cold outside.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C .

Cum aleg lumanarile parfumate

 Buna frumoaselor, Astazi va vorbesc despre lumanarile mele parfumate preferate , Yankee Candle  . Fiind o amatoare de  lumanari parfumate , apropiatii stiu asta si de multe ori primesc si de la ei lumanari de la diverse branduri insa sincer va spun ca pana acum nici un brand nu m-a impresionat mai tare decat Yankee Candle. O fi din cauza mirosului persistent, a aromelor si formelor diverse pe care le au lumanarile lor sau poate le asociez eu cu amintiri frumoase pe care le am. Cand am musafiri, pe langa curatenie, gatit, mereu aprind si o lumanare cu o ora inainte sa ajunga, astfel incat prima impresie pe care o au cand intra in casa sa fie una placuta. Mereu am apreciat o casa cu un miros frumos. Sa stiti ca am observat de-a lungul anilor ca pana si casa/locuinta in care stai are un anumit miros, la fel si hainele. Si de multe ori cand simt un miros asemanator ma duce cu gandul la acele persoane.  Poate nu toti oamenii sunt asa dar eu sunt, fiind avida de parfumuri, mirosuri frumoase
