Indoor Gardening Is Easier (and More Amazing) Than You Think!

Fewer urban dwellers these days are able to get places with their own garden. More people are moving into apartments than houses and, while apartment living does come with a bunch of benefits, it can make you feel less connected with nature due to the lack of a garden. But why not consider indoor gardening? Here are some of the amazing benefits.

Green space is good for the mind Indoor plants help lift your spirits. Green space has been shown to be good for the mind in several studies, and bringing plants into your home helps bring that green space inside. Doing some minor gardening work indoors is also really good for reducing stress; it also helps you feel a lot more productive and accomplished!

It’s not as difficult as you think We associate the growing of plants with lots of fresh air and sunlight. While we can go those things indoors to some degree, it will always be in a limited amount, right? We tend to associate the growing of plants indoors with expensive equipment and, um, illegal operations. But indoor ‘grow lights’, available in many stores and also listed by LumiGrowth, are more affordable and easier to install and use than ever. Growing things indoors is nowhere near the impossible task you may have once thought it was.

Finally found an efficient working laptop/bed table

I have been on a continuous search for a reliable and an efficient working table but always failed. It took me a while to finally found the most efficient one. I bought a laptop table years ago with a built-in cooling fan but I found it too small for the laptop that I currently use. Then I found this white tablemate online as an option. Tablemate is physically nice at but functions less. Its legs are too shaky and keeps on moving when I type something.

Just last month, I chanced upon this wooden laptop bed table via Lazada and took the risk of buying it. You know sometimes, photos online can be deceiving that could get you disappointed once you received them. I’m glad I went ahead on this one. It cost me Php800 + Php99 Shipping Fee, and it’s cash on delivery. Not bad eh?


What I love about this table is that there’s an enough room for a mousepad/mouse. I just can’t work effectively and quickly without these two.

It’s Never Too Early to Prepare for the Winter

In other parts of the world, Summer is in full swing now and it’s probably too late to do any home improvements or renovations to prepare for the heat. Perhaps, you wanted to fix the air conditioning or maybe you wanted to get the garden ready for summer parties, but you simply didn’t have enough time to finish them before summer came around. Sadly, there’s not much you can do now, so why not prepare for the next big seasonal change: winter.

Winter comes with a lot of challenges depending on where you live. For some, it’s a time of white snow and frosty roads. For others, it’s just a cold, damp mess with a lot of rain. No matter what situation you’ll be in, make sure you’re prepared with some of these tips. Remember; it’s never too late to prepare for winter!

Clear the gutters This is a tedious task especially if getting access to your gutters is hard, but it’s essential that you clean up any leaves that are already starting to fall onto your roof and slide down into the gutters. The more junk that’s left in your gutters, the more tiresome it will be to clear out when the rain starts to pour down. Ensure that you’re giving your roof a good examination while you’re up there as well. You don’t want any cracks to appear during the transition to winter, and since it’s nice and hot outside, it’s easy to climb onto the roof and inspect it without fear of it raining on top of you.

We all have moments where we dream of a life on the ocean waves. Spending weekends bobbing around on a peaceful lake or out in the open sea certainly is the dream for many of us. If you have been thinking about buying yourself a boat for some time now, but are still undecided, here are some things that you need to consider to finally determine whether it is something that you can afford to do and if so how to go about it.

What Do You Want Your Boat For Before biting the bullet and purchasing a boat you are going to need to consider what you will want to use your boat for. Maybe you want to use your boat for fishing in fresh or saltwater environments. Or perhaps you want to use your boat for family excursions where you can take the whole family out to explore different coastlines. Do you want to learn how to sail with a sailing boat or are you more interested in a smaller boat with an easy to use electrical motor? Perhaps you just want a vessel that will give you some quality time for you where you can relax, disconnect and enjoy the more simple pleasure in life.

Tired Bathroom? Check Out These Ideas To Liven It Up!

The bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house. There’s a good reason for this – you don’t spend your time there! It’s for hygiene and relaxing in the tub when you get a spare hour to indulge. It’s for this reason that the bathroom is often overlooked and the last one to see any kind of upgrade. We upgrade our kitchen, living room and bedrooms as those are the places we spend time being social in or relaxing, and this means the bathroom is the last one to be considered.

New Suite. Your bathroom may have had the same suite for decades, so a new, more modern suite like these ones are a great place to start. Get a suite that suits you. If you love a hot power shower, then converting your room into a wet room is a good idea.

New Accessories. One of the most fun aspects of decorating is the accessories! Waterfall shower heads like this one can make you feel like you’re in luxury! Adding some splashes of colour with your accessories can also make a wonderful difference to a previously drab room with no personality.

Mirrors. Bathrooms are small rooms, so adding lots of mirrors can make it look bigger and reflect the light around the room. You could choose to tile the room in mirror tiles, or just have a wall with mirrors covering the whole thing.
