Kick-Starting Your New Year Health and Fitness Plans

by , in
Will you be, or have you, made health and fitness resolutions for the New Year? Losing weight, 
gaining fitness, and increasing strength are popular resolutions, but they are also the ones that we 
break the most often, or never actually start. We go into the New Year with the very best of intentions, 
but struggling from post-holiday blues, we find it hard to get started. We enjoy festive overindulgence 
for a little too long, and we find it hard to exercise or eat healthily when it’s cold and dark outside, and 
all we really want to do is cuddle up on the sofa with a big box of chocolates. 

While no one will begrudge you a few weeks of rest for Christmas, the longer it takes you to get back 
to a healthy lifestyle, or make improvements, the harder it will be. And the longer you go on eating 
and drinking what you want and avoiding exercise, the more damage you are likely to do to your body. 
With that in mind, here are some of the things that you can do to kick start your health and fitness 
plans. 

Deal with Bigger Issues

Ask yourself if anything is holding you back? 
Do you need help from one of the best rehab centres in the UK? Or to see your GP about other 
worrying symptoms? Do you have injuries that require treatment or you to adapt your plans and 
goals? If a health or fitness issue is holding you back, deal with it asap. Don’t let it become an excuse. 

Give Yourself a Start Date

If we let it, Christmas overindulgence could go on forever. The chocolates and treats might not run out 
for weeks, and it’s all too easy to restock if you want to. So, give yourself a start date. This might be 
the day that you return to work, or when you take the Christmas decorations down. Set it now, knowing 
that the day before is your last day, and make the most of it. 

Try a New Exercise

A New Year is an excellent excuse to try new things.  
Gyms and health centres tend to be much busier in January as new members flock in with great 
intentions. But, trying something specific can be a better way to motivate yourself. Look at local 
exercise classes for something that you might enjoy. 

Try an Activity Tracker

January sales could be a great time to make savings on an activity tracker if you need some extra help. 
A good tracker doesn’t just monitor steps. It also tracks heart rate, activity minutes, and sleep, which 
can help you to set goals and stick to training programs. 

Make Small, Sustainable Changes

Don’t try to make massive changes that you couldn’t possibly stick to. Instead, be realistic. Aim to go 
to one exercise class a week, and just focus on walking more the rest of the time. Try to reduce 
processed food in your diet, or to drink more water. Make realistic and sustainable changes.

Idei de cadouri pentru cei dragi

by , in

Luna decembrie este o luna incarcata de emotii, fericire, revederi cu oameni dragi, cadouri si multe dulciuri :) 
Este luna mea preferata din an, de obicei ma intalnesc cu toti cei din familie de sarbatori, schimbam impresii, amintiri, cadouri. Am o familie destul de numeroasa, de cand m-am casatorit mereu iau multe cadouri, insa este o activitate care imi place si mereu vanez prima reactie a persoanei cand isi deschide cadoul. 
Mama stie ca in fiecare an primeste de sarbatori parfum, creme de fata, de corp sau cosmetice. Anul acesta cred ca am gasit cadoul perfect pentru ea : un set Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Am avut eu parfumul si i-a placut mult.
Pentru ten, ma gandesc sa ii iau setul  L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Laser X3. Mai am putin timp de gandire si o gramada de cadouri de luat. Mama are ten matur si inca nu am nici o experienta cu produsele acestea, asa ca doar sper sa nimeresc ceva care ii face bine. Produsele L’Oréal imi plac in general, sper sa ma surprinda placut si setul acesta.
Pentru cumnatele mele voi lua tot parfumuri si pentru una din ele si un set Wella Professionals Invigo Nutri-Enrich. Cu vreo trei ani in urma i-am mai luat un set si i-a placut foarte mult, asa ca o sa fie cu siguranta o surpriza placuta.
Tot ea isi doreste si un parfum Scandal de la Jean Paul Gaultier si stiu sigur ca nu si l-a luat inca. Un parfum dulce si indraznet care mi-a placut si mie insa inca nu ma identific cu el.
Sticluta arata oricum intr-un mare fel, perfecta pentru a sugera numele parfumului. Daca aveti prietene/iubite/surori care sunt fane, sa stiti ca il gasiti pe Notino, 80 ml la 349 RON.
Pentru tinere domnisoare care au inceput sa cocheteze cu machiajul insa totusi nu folosesc multe produse, cred ca un set de Lip Smacker Coca Cola ar fi un cadou frumos si inedit. Daca cola este bautura ei preferata, cu atat mai mult va aprecia cadoul.
Un cadou reusit pentru o sora/prietena/nasa ar fi si un set de Yankee Candle. Asta daca stii ca ii plac parfumurile pentru casa :)
Pentru sot/frate/tata/prieten gasiti multe idei de cadouri pentru barbati  pe notino. Anul acesta m-am rezumat la seturi de barbierit si parfumuri pentru barbatii din familie.

Spor la ales cele mai frumoase si potrivite cadouri pentru cei dragi voua!

Parfum pentru "acasa"

by , in
Acasa.. locul unde iti gasesti echilibrul,linistea,confortul si fericirea. De cate ori nu te-ai gandit la celebra fraza"Nicaieri nu-i ca acasa"? Pana sa ne luam casa noastra si stateam in chirie nu aveam sentimentul acesta atat de accentuat insa acum si daca lipsesc 2-3 zile de acasa, simt un confort si o liniste interioara cand ajung acasa.
Dupa cumparatul, aranjatul mobilei , a perdelelor, draperiilor, accesoriilor care personalizeaza casa ramane sa iti alesi parfumul care sa iti defineasca casa si simturile.
La birou, pe transportul in comun,in masina, pe strada simtit diferite mirosuri sau poluare care nu ne incanta deloc si uneori ne incarca si cu emotii negative, dar acasa putem alege noi ce sa simtim astfel incat sa simtim o atmosfera placuta si personala.
Daca in trecut nu aveai de unde sa alegi parfumuri pentru casa, astazi gasim multe si diversificate variante :
- Lampi catalitice care elimina din casa toate mirosurile neplacute, inclusiv fumul de tigara,aburii de la gatit, si mirosul animalelor de companie. Se pot lasa nesupravegheata si parfumeaza placut intreg spatiul.

Difuzoare de parfum - cred ca toti le-am folosit la un moment si chiar vreau sa imi comand unul pentru dormitor, mi se pare cel mai potrivit .

Review Calvin Klein Euphoria

by , in
Hello girls,

Parfumul poate fi semnatura oricarei femei, parfumul care ma reprezinta cel mai bine este Versace Crystal Noir insa imi place sa detin mai multe, sa am de unde alege. Stiam parfumul Euphoria Calvin Klein de cativa ani, m-am dat cu el de la prietene si mi-a ramas in minte insa nu l-am achizitionat pana acum. Decizie inteleapta ca l-am adaugat in cos cand cautam pe Notino produse de ingrijire si parfumuri!

In anul 2005 , Euphoria a fost nominalizat pentru cel mai bun parfum de lux al anului, fiind foarte iubit de catre doamnele si domnisoarele de pretutindeni.
Este un parfum intens, accesibil ca pret, cu un design reusit care trimite catre orhidee, vedeta parfumului.Cand il port, sunt complimentata adesea.
Parfumul debuteaza cu o nota de rodie, ca mai apoi sa te incante floarea de lotus si orhideea neagra, inima acestui parfum. In acest parfum vei gasi si note de violete, mosc, ambra si lemn de mahon. Toata nebunia se transforma intr-un parfum misterios, provocator , vesel , care iti poate aduce o stare de bine instant.
Din punctul meu de vedere este un parfum rezistent, daca ma dau dimineata il simt toata ziua la servici, iar pe haine persista chiar si cateva zile. ( am simtit parfumul cand puneam haine in masina de spalat).
Ca si raport calitate/pret recomand acest parfum. Nu a fost foarte scump, 187 RON pentru 100 ml, luat de pe Notino.
 Am si o veste buna pentru amatoarele de shopping : la orice comanda de pe site de minim 190 RON, primesti cadou un kit SOS cu produse perfecte de luat in geanta! Suna bine, zic eu. Eu am primit o data un set perfect pentru calatorii, si il gasesc util cand plec cateva zile de acasa.

Am vazut ca multe dintre produsele mele preferate inca nu am review pe blog si ma gandesc sa remediez cat de curand!
Ce produse, subiect va intereseaza ?

Literally Making Your Home One Of A Kind

by , in
Is it any wonder that we look at historical books and films, and fall in love with the decor and interior 
design they had? Look back at the 1700s,1800s and early 1900s and you’ll see how all the interior 
design styles we see and know today were formed. Someone had to be creative, someone had to take 
the best conventions of civilization and create them into a surrounding we’d be happy to wake up in. 
someone had to break the walls of expectations and what was considered acceptable. The interior 
designers who did this, all had to first reimagine their own homes, what they would want if they could 
make it or possibly afford it. Then came the actual practical task of making these ideas into a reality. 
Now, today, it's your turn. If you truly want to live in a space that is one of a kind, you have to make it 
into one. This requires a lot of thought and a lot of sketch drawings on paper. It depends on your own 
taste but also, your skill in craftsmanship. First, keep it simple and then get more and more 
adventurous.



Framing your style

Let’s start of simple, a mirror frame. You can buy mirror frames from pretty much any DIY store. Get 
the correct measurements you need for the mirror you have chosen to reframe. Take them down to 
your local carpenter shop or DIY store and they’ll make one for you. When you have it, now you can 
begin to paint and add anything to it. Make sure it's carving wood grade so if you want to reshape it at 
home with tools, you can. 




Drawing more depth

Cabinets and drawers are a great place to begin your personalization of the home. They’re big and 
blocky, so you have a large canvas on which to work on. They’re also visible but they don’t take 
centerstage so the pressure if off your shoulders to get it right first time. Start off with something 
simple. Think about a two-tone look for your drawers. It could be anything, your sock drawer, towel 
drawer or for makeup and jewelry. Pain the top surface into a darker tone and the same with the 
bottom. The middle or rather the drawers themselves should be in a lighter shade. Think about what 
your own style is. If you want something with more warmth, go for brighter shades like yellow, orange, 
red and even earthtones such as brown. If you want something that is more elegant, go with baby 
blue, lime green or perhaps even champagne for a more softer French look. The drawers should be in 
a neutral, so pearl white, silver or perhaps beige. If you’re confident, you can paint in a piano scheme 
i.e. neutral to brown from top to bottom. One drawer is brown the next under it is white etc.




More than just light

Lamps are another great area to begin your trail on the road to making a home more unique. Lamps 
are again, out of sight and out of mind but for the keen-eyed, they’ll pick up on your craftsmanship and 
style. Get the lampshade off, and detach the metal structure inside which sits on top of the bulb stand. 
You need this structure because the lampshade has to be kept separate from the stem so you can 
take the shade off at anytime without damaging the bulb. Next you need to find your material such as a 
thick card. Craft card is quite popular because it's lightweight but strong. Using the material, wrap it 
around the old lampshade to get a measurement of how big it should be. Once you have it, lock it in 
place using some kind of binding or sticking method. Use tec glue guns because the searing hot liquid 
glue will solidify into an incredibly strong solid. These have an adjustable full-hand lever so you can 
properly control the trigger for small shots with greater finesse. 

Leave the lampshade to dry overnight. Now, you can create whatever kind of style and pattern you 
want. Think outside the box, use various materials like linen, cotton and wool sheets. You can even 
use filter paper for cameras. This is a thin sheet of plastic that comes in all kinds of shades. You might 
just want to keep it simple and print a pattern off from the internet that you really adore. Wrapping it 
around the craft card and then fitting the metal structure into the new lampshade, then putting it on the 
bulb stand finishes off this small detail change. 



Standing rustic table

If you want to create something for your garden but aren’t sure where to begin, make yourself a patio 
stand table. This table is for when you’re sitting outdoors and want to place a drink near you or even 
just to put a plant vase on top of it. It gives the garden a little more depth and height. However, you’re 
not just making any old side table, you need something that’s rustic and tough. Since the garden is 
drenched with rain, pelted with hail and slowly covered snow, you need a table that can withstand all 
the elements. So, an aged oak wood shutter table is something you’ll want to explore. It's just like it 
sounds, old window shutters that are fitted together to make a large rectangle. Plantation style shutters 
are the best kind as the design is much more pronounced and also bulkier to withstand punishment. 
If you don’t have or can’t find any old shutters, then buy some cheap shutters instead. In fact, it gives 
you more opportunity to be creative. Paint and style the shutters however you want. You could go for a 
grass green color, or perhaps you want it to match you patio flooring so perhaps beige or grey. 

Creating your own style of interior is something many people want to do but don’t have the courage or 
the know-how. Begin small with a mirror frame because you can do almost anything to it. Then you 
should create your own lampshade, using various materials and patterns.

Is The Old-Fashioned Home Parlor Too Out Of Date?

by , in

Many of us have inclinations of what we would like to do given a spare free room in the house. Perhaps
 we’d like to craft a dining room separate from the kitchen area. Perhaps we’d like to craft a small and 
humble home gym. A studio or office is usually one of the most popular choices, and for good reason. 
But to this set of decision making, we would like to pose a question - is the good, old-fashioned home 
parlor out of the question?

You may have different answers for this. Some might say that yes, it would be quite ridiculous to craft 
a room simply for entertaining guests, when they might not visit all too frequently. In the past it was a 
means of socializing with guests, of showing your wealth, or perhaps a room where the gentlemen of 
the house and his friends would sit, smoke cigars and drinks

Of course, you likely won’t have this kind of intention. But is a home parlor too out of date? In this post, 
we would like to raise a defense of the home parlor, and help you think of why you should consider this 
a viable option.

The Values Of Entertaining

It can often be that we wish our social life was a little more textured and diverse. When you open a 
small parlor in your home, you are better able to steward a room dedicated to this kind of interest. 
Perhaps you would like to implement some games to play, such as a small pool table, or perhaps 
setting up your vinyl player and some comfortable in-the-round seating can afford everyone comfortable 
discussion time in the late hours.

For those with children, it can often be that inviting guests around at late hours is not advisable, due to 
how loud conversing at night can often wake them up. But in a dedicated parlor, perhaps in the room 
furthest from your house, subtle soundproofing implements (such as light foam behind the bookcase,) 
or simply its location can allow free discussion and relaxation.

It can be worthwhile to entertain, or at least have a dedicated space for it. This can be a niche feature 
often spoke about, something that will likely be considered a novelty by your guests. It can also provide 
you the means to decorate the room with elements you would like to show. Perhaps small artifacts or 
pieces of memorabilia from travels you have taken abroad can be great conversation starters. 
Professional photography of these environments may be blown up to wall-size and framed effectively to 
give the room a sense of global appeal. A home from home, but within your home, some might say.

On top of that, the relative separation of this room can also help you store items that you might not wish 
your children to come across. For example:

Your Own Bar

Many of us wish to craft our own mini-bar in our homes, somewhere we can proudly show our vintage 
bottle collection for years. Even those who only lightly partake in alcohol, or simply wish to entertain 
guests might find value in this. Bottles are often historical artifacts, and can be looked at with a sense 
of interest. Of course, most spirits only get better with age, also. 

You needn’t go overboard here, with an ice machine, many different glasses or anything overbearing. 
But simply enjoying a collection of small liquers that you can mix, and most importantly make an 
occasion of is better when conducted in a dedicated room. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with doing 
this over a kitchen surface, but somehow having your own dedicated room and experience can be a 
great benefit, especially if it’s more of an adult-space implement you would much rather keep away 
from your children.

Remain As Eccentric As You Like

One of the best things about a parlor is that you’re able to exercise your strongest forms of eccentricity. 
This might sound silly to think of, but it’s true. Many of us stop indulging in our most silly interests 
because we often think that filling our homes with that could be a bad idea. But in a dedicated room, 
perhaps one dedicated to fun entertainment anyway, you can remain as eccentric as you like.

Perhaps you have a bookshelf lined with only leather-bound encyclopedias you enjoy leafing through. 
Perhaps you’re into rare books and wish for a relaxing place to both preserve and display them. Maybe 
you wish for a vintage collection of old-guitars, or perhaps this is the room in which you’ll pretend you’re 
living in 50’s-era America, wearing a suit, fedora or dress with a cigar as you enter. Perhaps you’d like 
to purchase the most beautiful leather sofas to relax in class.

All of us have these little flights of fancy but are often quite worried to admit them. In a room dedicated 
to this kind of personal fun, it becomes less of a weird interest and something you simply do to entertain 
guests, to indulge and share in your hobby, and to have those conversations. Of course, a parlor isn’t 
necessarily needed for that, but what better place to host this kind of personal interest? 

Personal Planning

A home parlor could also be an excellent place for you and your partner to plan your life together. Of 
course, the etymology of the word means ‘to speak’ in French, meaning that this room may not only be 
a place to entertain guests, but also to have long and constructive conversations with your partner 
about your future.

Putting resources together to plan your modern excursions and considering just how you might tackle 
future challenges or move together towards a future that you want could be great within this room, as it 
guarantees privacy, and also provides an understood setting where you can talk without distraction. 
Sometimes weighing up your options can demand this singular frame of mind.

With these tips, we hope you consider the implementation of the good old-fashion home parlor. It might 
just be the thing your home needs.
