The Home Repairs You CAN Tackle Yourself

Becoming a homeowner is a hugely important milestone in most people's lives and something we 
dream of. But it's definitely not all relaxing on a pristine sofa or throwing barbecues at the weekend - 
our houses require regular maintenance work to stop them falling into disrepair. Quite simple repairs 
can develop into huge issues if left unresolved, so it's far better to tackle things head on and develop a 
proactive home repairs schedule. If there's something you can do that only requires simple tools and 
isn't dangerous, it's a good idea to learn how to do it yourself and save some money. This will keep 
costs down and make sure that you can call in a contractor when you really need to.

Refresh Your Paintwork

The key to maintaining fresh looking rooms is being able to give them a new coat of paint occasionally, 
and it's something you should be able to do yourself. The key is to spend enough time on the prep 
work before you ever raise a roller. 

Start by removing any fixtures which will be in the way - unscrewing curtain rods and taping up the 
edges of light switches and skirting boards with low-tack decorators tape. Get a pro finish by cleaning 
down the walls with a damp sponge to get rid of dust and grime that will stop paint adhering cleanly to 
the walls. Check for any old nail holes or little surface dents and cover them with filler before sanding 
down. Apply a primer first and then a couple of coats of the shade you've chosen - it's a brilliant way to 
breathe life back into your home.

Service Your Heating and Aircon

The winter means you will have been using more heating while the summer makes demands on your 
air conditioning unit, so spring is the perfect time to service both and prep them. Start by checking the 
copper pipe coming out of your unit - if it feels hot, the units coils are likely to be dirty and in need of a 
wash. Clean out any vents of dust and debris that stop your unit working effectively - if you find a 
problem, call a 24/7 ac repair before issues escalate. Bleed radiators to rebalance the levels and 
ensure even heat distribution. There are lots of simple video tutorials for servicing your heating syste
out there that you can follow.

Reseal Your Bathroom

Redoing the sealant and grouting in your bathroom not only guards against expensive and damaging 
leaks and stops mould and mildew forming, but it freshens up the appearance of your whole bathroom. 
You can get hold of products which soften the old caulking and make it easier to cut away and remove 
with a scraper. Once you've stripped it out, use paint thinner to get rid of any residue. Next, load your 
caulking gun with your choice of sealant and have a few practice runs on an old piece of scrap to make
 sure you can apply it as a smooth even line. If you aren't confident, you can also get strips of caulking 
that you unroll and press into place. Next, use a grout whitening pen to touch up between your tiles, of 
it's chipped and damaged, you can regrout your tiles - there is even coloured grouting available if you 
want a low-key new look.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
