Sleep Easy In Your Home With Awesome Tech



Do you worry about the safety and security of your home? You’re not alone, we all panic that when we go out, particularly for long periods of time, we’ll come back to find our door has been bashed in or our windows have been smashed. Some people are so paranoid about the possibility of a break-in that they lock all the doors in the middle of the day when they’re in the house. If you constantly find your mind plagued with the fear of a home robbery, you’ll be happy to hear that technology is providing the solution. New technology can make sure that your home is completely secure.

Smile, You’re On CCTV

In the past, it was quite rare to see a home with CCTV equipment. Now, it’s fairly common to see a home with a few cameras, particularly around the front of the property. Part of the reason for this is that the equipment is a lot more affordable these days. As such, people don’t have to worry about the cost of setting it up. As well as this, the tech involved is less complex and much more user friendly. You can set it up in minutes and even installing it on a wall outside your home is a piece of cake.

The only issue you need to consider is where it’s aimed. Recording someone else’s property is illegal, and you might face issues if the camera seems to be angled towards your neighbor's driveway. So be sure to verify what the camera is aimed at.

Motion Lights

You can see the appeal here, can’t you? If the lights come on, it means someone has stepped on your property. It’s a darn sight less annoying than an alarm sounding in the middle of the night. You might be worried about birds landing in the garden setting it off or perhaps a hedgehog wandering through the grass. Thankfully, you can fidget with the settings of these systems to make sure that it doesn’t go off every ten seconds.

Don’t Panic

What happens if you’re in when someone breaks into your home. Thankfully, violent break-ins are incredibly rare. If someone enters your home, they’ll be after your TV, not your family. So, if you can find somewhere safe and secure to hide, that’s what you should do. With Advanced Protection Systems on the market today, you can even have a panic switch. This will alert the authorities and ensure they know there is an issue on your property without alerting the thieves. This gives you a great opportunity to catch the fiends red-handed.

Finger Scan Accepted

Yes, you can setup your front door to open with a fingerprint ID, ensuring that you and your family are the only ones who can enter without permission. Of course, there will always be other ways to break in, but it’s a lot harder when you can’t just pick a lock. Some people worry about the security of systems like this, and as always, you get what you pay for. Spend money on a more expensive system and the thieves will still be outside trying to break in when the police arrive.

We hope you see now that tech can let you sleep easy in your bed, without worrying about a break-in.

Custom Phone Cases and Skins From CaseApp

Okay y'all, this is a company I am so excited to share with you!! How many of you have a case on your phone? Probably most, I would imagine. Smart phones are too expensive these days to not have some sort of protective case on it. Chances are you picked up your case at a local department or electronics store, or possibly found one online. Well, if you're tired of having the same old case as everyone else, here's a really neat place you need to check out!


I was actually able to review two items from CaseApp; an iPhone case, and a MacBook skin. I loved being able to go in and design the products on their easy-to-use website. Whether you're a computer geek, or can barely find your way around the keyboard, you'll be able to navigate the designing process extremely easily and create your own masterpiece! There are multiple options for each; use a single picture, create a collage, or "freestyle" and just add and arrange the pictures as you'd like. You can also add text, background, and clipart, so that the finished case is exactly to your preference.


The products arrived quickly, and I was excited to see how they turned out. The iPhone Tough Case far exceeded my expectations! I was honestly expecting a cute but cheap case, something that's worth about 10 dollars if it weren't for the customization on the back. However, I was surprised to see that the case is actually two parts. The inner part is a silicone lining that provides that smug fit to keep your phone protected on all sides. The design is on an outer plastic piece that snaps on over the silicone layer. This means added protection, plus the bonus of having your favorite picture(s) on the back! I absolutely loved it right from the start! I have received so many questions and compliments about the case, too. Several friends have asked where I ordered it, and I was glad to share the website and my compliments about the company!




The second item I received is a MacBook skin, which adds a decorative touch to your electronic device. I actually gifted this to my mom and she, no surprise, loves it! I used the collage feature to put six of her favorite family photos on the skin. She was able to put the skin on without any issues, and said it was quite easy to do. Her Mac looks fabulous now, and I love the personal touch it gives. In addition to looking good, the skin also protects her Mac from being scratched (every Mac owner's nightmare!).


So, ready to get some holiday shopping done? Or want to personalize and protect your phone? You won't find a better place to shop than CaseApp!

One of our readers will receive a code for a FREE Case or Skin from CaseApp!

DIY Storage Solutions For An Organized Interior Space

A busy home often means your stuff seems to multiply overnight. Whether it’s the kids toys, your sentimental items, or your seasonal clothing; they all need a home, and that home shouldn’t be on the floor. Storage can become your best friend, and for an organized interior (most of the time) you need to think of the areas of your home that aren’t currently being utilized.

Neglected corners, spaces under the stairs, and even your attic can all become functional spaces that look great and provide a neat home for your family’s belongings. Store-bought pieces of furniture may not squeeze into the nooks and unusually-shaped areas of your home, and bespoke storage solutions can be an expensive investment, especially as the holiday season approaches (that’s crept up quickly). Therefore, it might be time to give yourself and your partner a DIY job or two, so that you can create simple, effective, design-savvy storage in your home. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and tips for those ready to spend a weekend in overalls for a neat and organized house.

Get Equipped

You’ll want the flexibility to create a storage space that can be as discreet, or as eye-catching as you like. Many utilize large areas of shelving as display areas, and they can house an array of your decorative, special, and sentimental items. Therefore you need to ensure that the wood you use fits in with the rest of your decor, or can be painted a color of your choice. You’ll need to visit sites like GetReciSaw.com so that you have the tools to cut your materials accurately, and it’s always worth heading to a DIY store for some expert advice on the best-suited wood for the job.

You’ll need equipment to sand and smooth edges, accurately measure spaces, and the fixtures and fittings to secure the shelving within the space. Look into sites like Pinterest.com and discover some of the best ways to paint and stain wood, and give your room the designer edge.

Choose Your Space

`Whether you’re creating a fun storage solution for your kids and their toys, or you want a hidden space where you can put the Christmas decorations away for eleven months of the year; it’s all about picking the perfect spot. If you’ve got your wood, tools, and the rest of your equipment; you can be as creative and imaginative as you like. Perhaps your kids could have shelves and cupboards on wheels so that they can maneuver their toys around the house with ease. Or those space above your wardrobes would make excellent places for those annual items that need hiding most of the time.

For some clever storage ideas take a look here and begin to think about how you can incorporate the ideas into your home space. Write a list of what you’ll need, gather your things together, and roll up your sleeves this weekend; you’ll have a happy, clean, and organized interior in no time!

5 Risks to Protect Your Home From



Does it ever seems like the world is less of a safe place to you? It's not that the risk of damage to your home wasn't always there- it's just that in today’s news networked world, we hear about causes of damage to homes more often. It's undeniable that the natural disasters, theft and damage scare stories we see have a basis in fact, and it's only wise to protect you and your family from the following threats:

Nature


Perhaps the biggest adversary to the security of our homes in these times of rapid climate change are natural disasters. 1,691 tornadoes occurred in the U.S. in 2011, at a cost of $28 billion, and then there are disastrous floods, incidences of wildfire and other phenomena to guard against. The type of protection homeowners insurance can offer gives you peace of mind that you can't put a price on.

Fire Hazards


Domestic fires are a huge threat in homes packed full of electric appliances- especially so in the winter months as more people embrace log burners and fireplaces. In an average year, 374,000 residences catch fire, resulting in $7.32 billion in loss. The devastation could be staggering, so always make sure you have a home fire safety plan in place and check fire alarms regularly to ensure they are working well.

Theft and Damage


Theft is also a leading cause of loss of goods and damage to property as well as being a traumatic experience for those who have experienced it. Although installing a home security system can help, knowing that you are covered in the event that the worst does happen is not only an investment in your home, but also in your mental health. Not much feels worse than knowing someone invaded your home and privacy.

Leaks and Flooding


Often, internal leaks are the last thing that comes to mind when you consider protecting your home, but if one begins it can very quickly cause a large amount of damage. Take extra care when tackling any DIY projects, as accidentally nailing through a water pipe can be a costly mistake and means you'll have to shut down the water mains until it's fixed. Equally, in regions that reach freezing temperatures, water can expand and burst pipes that aren't properly insulated. Make sure you do a yearly check on the washing machine and it's hoses to check for loose connections or deterioration of the piping material. If you're not home and one bursts it can be majorly unwelcome news.

Most of these risks can be guarded against with a little vigilance, some sensible practice in the home and a solid homeowners insurance policy. Make sure that you have a clear emergency plan that all family members are aware of, and when selecting insurance coverage make sure everyone is aware of what you are covered for, as otherwise the costs of recovering from a home disaster can be devastating for a family. While no one can make themselves 100% safe from any type of disaster, you can make sure that you are prepared and covered to help you feel more at ease that support is there if it's ever needed.

Townley Girl and Despicable Me 3

Hey neighbors!!

We have worked with Townley Girl before and really like their products.  This time we have a couple sets inspired by Despicable Me 3.  We have Lip Balm, Lip Gloss and Nail Polish kits.  Of course the products are designed with Minions, Unicorns and Agnes, Edith, and Margo.

We started out with the nail polish kit ($5.99).  It was a hit!  There are three girly, glittery, nail polishes, Who's Up for Trouble, Unicorns I Love Them and I Can't Even...  Along with the nail polish is a cuticle stick  and a glitter, pink, nail file, that is nice and short and wide for smaller hands.  Last, but not least, is a small container of nail jewels.  (Please use adult supervision.)  The nail polish is non-toxic and peelable.




The next kit ($4.99) we opened was a small, purple, coin purse with Agnes and her unicorn on the front.  Included with this was two lip glosses, one grape flavored and the other watermelon flavored.  The last two items are hair clips.  The pink one features Agnes and her unicorn and  has "Agnes" written on it.  The other is the unicorn with Family.  Oh, and the change purse says, "Be nice to Unicorns!"  Both the clips and lip glosses fit inside the coin purse.




They also have a Lip Balm kit ($7.99) that includes 4 adorable Minion shaped lip balms, right down to the googly eyes.  A sort of banana shaped bag, yes, it is yellow, is included with the lip balms.  The bag has three Minions pictured on the front.




Above you can see two of the lip balm colors.  They are lightly tinted.  I had to put several layers to even get the color to show up this much.  The scents are pretty nice too!  There is Bubble Bum, Watermelon, Cotton Candy and Grape.

If you have a little girl, who loves to have her nails done, and enjoys having lip gloss and lip balm, these are the perfect little sets.  They would make great holiday gifts too!  I am sure many of you are already shopping and picking up small gifts for the holidays, why not consider a gift set from Townley Girl.

One neighbor will be able to win Despicable Me 3 product from Townley Girl.  Be sure to enter this giveaway!

Work From Home? Make Sure You Keep An Eye On Your Mental Health

Working from home does, on paper, look like a pretty sweet deal if you can do it. There’s no commute, no trudging through poor weather just to get to the office, and if you want to spend the day working in your pajamas, then well, you can. However, the working from home gig isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be. If you’re not careful, it might be having a detrimental effect on your mental health, and you may not even realize it. Below, we take a look at four easy to incorporate tips that’ll ensure your mind doesn’t suffer due to your working at home.

Get Out of the House


If you work from home, then it’s tempting to stay indoors, especially if the weather outside isn’t enjoyable. However, keep in mind that there are real benefits from spending some time outside of the home, ideally active. For starters, you’ll be getting the fresh air and exercise that you need to feel well. You’ll also have more opportunities to speak with other people, which you don’t always get if you’re living a relatively isolated life at home.

Have a Dedicated Workspace


If your whole home is your office, then you’ll never be able to switch off. It’s not easy to think of your living room as a place of relaxation if you’ve spent the last eight hours using it as a makeshift office. You’ll always be surrounded by work. As such, it’s essential that you have a dedicated workplace in your home, a room that’s only used for work; never for fun. Setting up a home office is easy. Just clear out the old belongings, get home office furniture at Modern Digs, and make sure you have all the provisions you need to work well. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to “leave the office” and join your family, stress-free.

Know When To Switch Off


Of course, you’ll only be able to leave the office if you know how to switch off. When you work from home, it’s always tempting to check emails and answer phone calls whenever they come in, especially if you’re a freelance worker. For your brain to be at its best, it needs to switch off occasionally. Make sure that you establish an endpoint for your working day, and then stick to it. Once that time passes, there’ll be no more checking emails.

Avoid the Lazy Habits


It’s easy to fall into bad habits when you work from home. You might not get dressed in the morning, your hygiene might not be a priority, and you could end up eating meals that you know are bad for you. When you’re working from home, treat it like any other job. That means making sure you’re presentable, upbeat, and otherwise taking care of yourself.

Mental health is a problem for stay at home workers, but if you take our advice above, you’ll be able to stay in a positive, productive frame of mind; which is what you need to be at your best!

Dream Enhancements To Your Home

Our homes can be a source of joy, and why shouldn’t they be? Many of us go out to work each day to pay our mortgage or rent, and so equally we want to come home to a place we are proud of. In most cases, people are happy with their homes. Only wanting to move for larger space or reduce expenses, or even to change cities for things like work commitments. However, we often all have the dream of the perfect home, and there are some enhancements I think any one of us would like to do if money was no object. I wanted to share with you what I think some of the most common home improvements would be.


pexels-photo-273822-2.jpeg


The ultimate kitchen


The kitchen is the hub of the home, and many people love the idea of a big kitchen that has enough space for things like a pantry, a huge fridge and freezer and flat top cooking area that might even include a grill. There are other conveniences we would like to have in our kitchens, things like a huge dining area where all the family can sit around to enjoy a meal. Maybe even a seating area or a corner to relax in after cooking up a storm. It is certainly a dream to have the ultimate kitchen.


The ultimate bathroom


Much like a kitchen is, the bathroom can also be a great addition to a home especially if you are able to have a limitless budget when it comes to the renovations of it. Perhaps you want a roll top bath, a big shower, maybe even a portable sauna that can be used in there. Some people actually have a steam room element added to a freestanding shower, which can give you all of the luxuries of a spa in your very own home. How amazing would that be?


water-1018808_960_720.jpg


A pool


If you had a huge bank balance and a chance to buy the dream home, what would be the one thing you would like? Many would answer that they would like a pool. Perhaps an outdoor or an indoor pool, a place to relax and enjoy family time with the kids. A pool can be a huge addition to a family home, but there are also things to consider when it comes to pool maintenance.


A walk in wardrobe


You might also consider a walk in wardrobe as one of your dream enhancements you would like to make to your home. Imagine having a wardrobe dedicated to shelves where you can display all of your shoes? Or maybe you want to showcase your designer handbag collection on shelves or in cupboards? A walk in wardrobe these days is no longer just a big cupboard, people have their dressing tables in there, big mirrors and even seating areas to relax amongst your beautiful clothes. A woman can dream, can’t she?

I hope that these options have sent you into a little daydream of what you might like to add to your home if money was no object.

Are You Behind The Times

There are two types of homes. There are ones that are modern, full of the latest gadgets and updated interiors. Then there are the other ones that seem outdated or old. Perhaps stuck in times past, or just never renovated. Older homes, often have a sense of character about them. Whether you have an old or a new design, there’s still a couple of hidden gems you can add to your home to give it that bit of jazz.

Dedicated_home_theater.jpg


Convert The Spare Room

This might be an expensive update, but depending on what you do with the room, you might actually have some happy people. A home cinema is something people think they can only dream of, or is only for the wealthy, but in reality, all you have to do is save a little and it’ll be a dream come true. The picture quality, and movie experience you gain will be amazing. You’ll wow any guest that comes through your door, and the kids will be the talk of the school. Have a look at home theater installation to get some quotes and ideas of what style you’d like. There’s so much tech involved, you’ll never want to visit the cinema again, and the quality it brings will be like nothing you’ve experienced before.

The Yard

Let’s be honest, it’s easy to leave allow the yard to become a sorry state of affairs, especially as the colder months draw in. What sounds more perfect than a hot tub during a cold winter's night? It’s romantic for couples, and great fun for kids. Again, they might be a little pricey. You don’t have to get a professional wooden one that’ll dent your bank account. Often, you can purchase inflatable one’s for around $100 that’ll do the same job. They’re easier to set up, and can be packed away come the summer months to make way for a swimming pool. Inflatable pools can easily be purchased, for even cheaper than the hot tub when summer comes around.

Your Bedroom

You should be able to take pride in your bedroom. You want it to be the comfiest, most inviting room in the house. The list of upgrades you could put in there is endless. Take the bedframe for example. Throw out the old one, and get the one you have always wanted, yet been afraid to purchase. If you want to go all out, there are entertainment centers that hide the TV, then at the push of a button it opens to your view. To add to the convenience, you could purchase the Google Home gadget. This can be used anywhere in the house. When in the bedroom, you can say commands such as “Ok Google. Play…. Audio book”. It’ll be pure relaxation, and saves your tired eyes and head from having to search for anything.

Getting ahead of the times isn’t as hard as you’d imagine.  Even simpler little tips like redecorating, or changing some furniture will help propel you to more modern times.

The Worst Surprise: Coping With An Unexpected Bill

important-2508599_640.jpg

You’re probably familiar with finding room in your budget for all the standard bills, such as those for heating or the cost of your cellphone, but what about surprise bills? The unexpected demands for money that hold the potential to absolutely destroy your budget; the most unwelcome surprises that any of us have to deal with. Things like:

  • An unexpected healthcare expense,
  • A large kitchen appliance breaking down,
  • Suddenly having to fund a school trip that you weren’t expecting

And so on and so forth; expenses that you’re unprepared for. If they hit you at the wrong time, they can push your budget to breaking point.

Coping with these unpleasant surprises is a key part of your overall financial strategy. So rather than panicking the next time you’re hit with an unexpected expense, deal with it calmly by utilizing these strategies for the future.

#1 - Create A Contingency In Your Budget

If you budget every cent of your income, then that might seem like a good idea-- many people are proud of their “zero budgeting”. However, there’s a downside to this tactic. If there’s no slack in your budget, then you’re always going to be hurt by a surprise expense.

So, you have to build the surprises into your budget. How is that possible, when you don’t know what they are? It’s simple: your budget needs a contingency section. This is an amount of money you set aside every month to pay for those surprise bills and expenses. If you don’t need to use this amount, then that’s fine; you can treat yourself, or you can let the contingency funds mount up for future use. The most important thing is that you get into the habit of running a contingency; it will make coping with unexpected costs so much easier.

#2 - Examine Your Warranty Options

When large electrical goods breakdown, you know that you’re going to be looking at a serious financial expense. It would probably take most families a long time to build up a contingency big enough to be able to, for example, unexpectedly replace their fridge or main TV.

There are solutions to this problem, thankfully. You may find that house warranties could be a good option for you, as these offer a level of protection against standard wear and tear on your household appliances. You pay a small amount per month and, in exchange, you can be sure of a repair or replacement in the event that something goes wrong with an appliance or household object. This choice is particularly useful if your contingency section of your budget is relatively small; warranties ensure you’re covered for the length of time it takes you to build that contingency fund up to a substantial level.

#3 - Always Have A Backup

For major household items, it’s wise to have a backup option in case of unexpected failure. Use sales periods like Black Friday as a chance to stock up on various household goods, then store them away, ready to be pressed into service if your existing item is suddenly rendered unusable. This is a great way of ensuring you’re always buying items for a great price, thus making your budget go that little bit further. A backup iron, hairdryer, and vacuum cleaner are a good place to start.

Those unexpected bills and expenses will always surprise you. However, by applying the ideas used above, you can be sure you’ll always be able to cope with the demands on your finances.

Getting Active When You Have Physical Issues

Not everyone is born the same, and for those who have physical disabilities, it’s difficult to move around like everybody else does. All is never lost if you have a fountain of hope and determination to draw from. It's never going to be easy, to begin with, but as you get used to how your body moves which will be in an entirely unique way, you’ll learn to get the best out of yourself. You may have joint trouble, your legs might not be the same length as one another, you might have ligament tightening or technically anything out of the ordinary, but this doesn’t mean you should be put off. There is way to become active and live a healthier lifestyle, even though you may find some disabilities that hold you back. A few things you should do, to begin with, will be to balance yourself out first and foremost and then adapt your movement by having the right kind of gear.

Weightlifting with tight ligaments

If you have a pain that flows up and down your limbs when you are attempting to weight train, then there is something much deeper going on. Namely, your ligaments are being stretched and strained, and in turn, if they are weak, the muscle will not contract. This doesn’t allow you to lift the weights to help you build up muscle. Equally, strength cannot be increased without having ligament and cartilage strength. You may have carpal tunnel in your wrists that won’t allow you to grip the barbell or free weights properly and thus will put you in danger. What you can do to solve this is to slowly work them into submission. Ligaments are made up of tiny fibers that are also incredibly tough, and that’s why there is no other way but to smooth them out.

Use a roller foam to gently run your limbs across and put firm pressure on it when you do. Using your bodyweight, roll slowly back and forth over the roller to help iron out the ligament. Do this for two minutes, to begin with, then take one-minute breaks between two more sets of two minutes to fully loosen up the area. You can also use heat packs to put on your affected ligament area, such as the elbow to slowly melt the tension and coarseness away. When you feel loose and flexible, you can start training with heavier weight.

Shin splints

One of the most dull aching pains you can have is if you are suffering from shin splints. A pain that centers in the middle of your tibias bone, i.e., shin bone. However, this can only be caused by offset pressure. Normally, it's a lack of technique when running or walking, but it's also attributed to abnormalities in one’s anatomy. If you have flat feet, the shock of your foot impacting the ground will travel up into your ankle, knee, hip and sometimes subject your shins to minute cracks which causes shin splints. You can learn more about the best walking shoes for flat feet by reading a review. These types of shoes have the supportive heel counter system, which are made from a firm thermoplastic and provides added stability. There are many different kinds of shoes specifically designed for someone with a flatter sole that will help form a curve in your foot for you purely by the beauty of the design. The padding will be strategically placed, so the heel doesn’t absorb a lot of punishment and therefore the shockwave won’t travel upward into your ankles, shins, and knees as much.

Blocked nasal and windpipe

When we workout and exercise, our body demands more oxygen. Thus, our breathing has to increase to be able to give us enough energy. If you have too much mucus blocking your airway, you will notice that you begin to wheeze when you exhale. It's not due to asthma but the much-needed clearing of your nasal cavities. You can do this by drinking warm liquids, gargling salt water, and breathing in steam through your nose before you set off to live your active lifestyle. These methods will melt the mucus and unclog your windpipe so you can breath easier.


Having physical disabilities comes in many different ways. Some of them may be related to your anatomy and others might be due to deeper layers closer to your joints and bones. Equally, however, the importance of working through your body's overly protective measures can also help you to achieve a healthier lifestyle and get active
