So, you’re finally taking the plunge and moving to a new home? As you’ve almost certainly found out within a few minutes of making the decision to move, there’s plenty that can be stressful about switching homes.
If you’re anything like the typical mover, you’ve probably been overwhelmed to realise just how many different things you actually own. You’ve probably also held your head in your hands on more than one occasion, and lost yourself to the feeling of stress and dread that you might have to spend weeks packing everything into boxes before you even have the chance to enjoy your new home.
Keep up your morale, however. Moving to a new home, and especially the journey to buying a house, can and should be some of the most exciting and enriching experiences you can have. Once you’re all set up in your new residence, you can expect to feel wave after wave of satisfaction and happiness washing over you.
The trick is just in making sure that you get the best possible start in your new home, and don’t have to spend too long surrounded by un-opened boxes of stuff, eating takeaway for each meal.
Here are some essential tips you should take to heart, for getting the best possible start in your new home.
Leave the junk behind
The first step to getting the best start in your new home, is making sure that you don’t unnecessarily bring across all the junk that’s weighing you down in your current one. Some of this will be literal junk, in the sense that it’s stuff you should have gotten rid of long ago but never got around to — broken appliances, a collection of old newspapers or food wrappers, for example.
Some of it will also be stuff which you wouldn’t necessarily consider junk, but which nonetheless has no real benefit to you, and may even drag you down emotionally or just take up space as clutter which could be better used storing things that you actually get some use out of.
Examples here could include gadgets which you bought on a whim but never used, clothes which you haven’t worn in years and don’t really like, but cling to out of habit, and so on.
Space is valuable, and having an uncluttered living space is one of the best overall ways of creating a sense of tranquillity in your home.
When sorting through your belongings and preparing to pack, make a point of ditching everything which isn’t either useful to you in a realistic way, or which doesn’t make you smile for one reason or another. If it’s not a treasured heirloom or trinket, or something that serves your needs, let it go.
Get any essential work done as early as possible
Moving homes — especially moving into a newly purchased house — can involve the need for a lot of cleanup. It’s not unusual to arrive in your dream home, only to find corners of mess sneakily concealed in different corners, or various partly-broken things which you hadn’t noticed during your viewings, but which nonetheless are going to need the help of an expert to fix.
You want to get all of this stuff sorted out as soon as possible, because the longer it endures, the more of a headache it’s going to be for you, and the longer it’ll be issuing an IV drip of stress into your otherwise blissful new living experience.
Wherever possible, you should thoroughly survey the home before even moving in, and make whatever arrangements you can to get those issues seen to before your arrival. In practice, though, you’ll likely have to deal with these things once you’ve already moved in.
This isn’t the end of the world, but it is important that you make a priority of getting the ball rolling as soon as possible. Noticed a bunch of builder’s rubble half-buried in the garden? Spend a weekend digging it out if you can, or else call a landscaper. Have a leak in the ceiling, or notice a draft in the living room? Contact the necessary professionals as soon as you’re able.
Don’t let little issues like this ruin the euphoria of the move.
Start with a new cleaning rota from day one
Just about everyone has the best of intentions when it comes to cleaning; they subscribe to the ideal that living in a clean house is a great thing indeed, and believe that even if things get messy from time to time, they’ll soon get a handle on the situation.
Often, this doesn’t really come to pass, and the house continues to exist in a state of semi-mess at any given time. The reason for this isn’t because homeowners across the land have fatal character flaws, but instead because maintaining a clean home requires the right set of habits to achieve day-in and day-out.
Start as you mean to go on, by implementing a cleaning rota as soon as you move into your new home. Even if you life by yourself, having a set schedule for which days of the week you’ll clean various rooms, take out the recycling, etc., is a great hack for staying on top of things.
Figure out your design and style template in advance
Your new home shouldn’t just be a place where you sleep and shower around work and social activities, it should be a place which makes you feel alive, happy, and content. A home is, partly, a canvas which you can project your interests, desires, preferences and tastes onto.
To get a proper handle on the aesthetics of your home from day one, begin with a clear design and style vision which you intend to see realised in the home.
What colour-schemes do you prefer? Are you more of a “rustic”, or “modern” person? Do you feel more inspired by minimalism or artistic presentations and arrangements?
By having a clear design vision, combined with the blank slate of a new home, you can achieve remarkable design feats with minimal effort, and keep the aesthetic consistent in the months and years to come.
When heading out on a travelling adventure, there is a list of things to think about, from what to pack to where to go. And one of the most significant things you need to think about (hopefully in advance) is where to stay. The levels of accommodation you can utilise differs depending on location and your personal budget. Obviously, if you’re heading out on a student bank account for your gap year, what you can afford will differ from a millionaire island hopping. What you want out of where you’re staying will be a big part of deciding where to stay – if you’re looking for an authentic, cultural holiday or want an all-inclusive, sun, sea and beach deal.
Travelling might mean that you’re visiting every state in America, or every island in the Indian Ocean one after the other. Or it could just be a week-long break, and you’re taking the opportunity to go somewhere new. ‘Travelling’ is about seeing different cultures and seeing places, not just sitting in a hotel all week. Venture out and see the world, there are some fantastic places to see, and a wide range of places to stay while doing it.
Here we’ll look at some of the different types of travel accommodation you can get, and the various levels within each category.
Camping can be a great way to see a new country, being out in the mountains, forest, open land, it can be truly beautiful. However you do need to be aware of the laws around camping in that country – some places let you pitch up anywhere, and some have strict rules about that sort of thing. If you don’t fancy erecting a tent, but like the idea, then why not go glamping? Glamourous-camping has been on the rise for years and can be a great way to combine comforts with the great outdoors. There are fantastic glamping options in safari lodges and reservations, allowing you to maintain your creature comforts while being in the middle of nature.
Hostels have had a reboot over the past few years and don’t have the same, lousy reputation that they used to have. Hostels are the top choice for backpackers of all ages – they are easy to find all over the world, and are pretty cheap no matter where you go. The only differences you will find with hostels is whether they use communal dorm rooms with or without an en-suite. Some places, like Rome, use four-man tents, fitted with bunk beds and power sockets – so at least you can keep your devices charged. A lot of glamping-type hostels have a campus feel to them, with a basic restaurant, shop and pool. Dorm ones, especially in a city, tend to be more of a B&B, or just B, set up.
Everyone is used to the star system hotels use, and it’s a pretty good indicator of the level of the hotel. The best, of course, is a five-star rating, and a one star should probably be avoided at all costs. Hotels are a great option while travelling if you have a little more to spend and are going to be staying in one location for longer than a couple of days. You can go B&B – which will include a large range of smaller locations, and can be a bit more of a reflection of the local culture. Or half-board (breakfast and dinner included,) or all-inclusive, where everything – including the bar – is included in the price. If you’re going all-inclusive, it might be worth opting for the higher rated hotels, so that you know that the service you’re paying for, for the majority of your holiday time, will be excellent.
Renting a room
Thanks to sites like Airbnb, renting a room has become a lot more popular. Whether it’s in your country or state, or somewhere halfway across the globe. Plus, with these sites, it feels a lot safer to be staying at some stranger’s house. Yes, tit still has it’s dangers, and Airbnb did receive some backlash over incidents a couple of years ago. But it can be so simple, and cheap to do. The difference with booking a room through this sort of avenue, rather than with a travel agency, means that you don’t have to pay for the middle man. But you also have to book your flights and transport yourself – so if you’re someone who likes everything sorted in one place, then you might want to consider a different option.
Renting a house
Apartments, houses, villas, chalet – they all fall into this category. The different levels all depend on how much you want to spend. Renting a one-bed flat in Germany will be cheaper than a villa in the Maldives, for example. You also need to consider what facilities you’ll want – wifi, driveway, in a town or out in the sticks? All these will affect what you can get for your money. But if the price isn’t an issue, there are some amazing places you can look into renting; Old Town in Prague feels like you’re stepping back in time, and offer some historical locations to rent. House rental in Singapore is high on the list with its extensive mix of cultures, it can be a great option. Glass Igloos in Finland to watch the Aurora Borealis every night. Or even classic medieval castles across England.

When planning for your big day, you’d be forgiven for suffering a mild panic attack and reaching for the brown paper bag with your sweaty palms. The list of things to organise if never ending and even though you have set a date for next year, you know how quickly time passes by. Marrying the love of your life should be the most memorable day of your life. By putting into motion your preparation early, you should be able to account for every eventuality and potential blip.
While you may have planned out what needs to be organised, you may be a little more perplexed by the specifics. You know you need to sort out your dress, but what look are you going to go for? You need to arrange your entrance to the wedding venue, but are you going to select a traditional classic car or choose something a little more kooky like a motorbike and sidecar or a hot air balloon? The possibilities are endless and your choices, from the wedding cake to the table decorations, will make your wedding wholly bespoke to you and your partner and create a memorable day for all of your special guests. If you want to forego the traditions and investigate less conventional options for your big day, take a look at these ideas to give you some quirky inspiration.
When it comes to the wedding reception, it goes without saying that you need some music. You could, of course, source a typical wedding DJ to belt out some classic romantic songs alongside some cheesy pop. For a more personalised approach, you could even ask each of your guests to write down their favourite song of all time when replying to invitations. When you’ve received back all of your RSVPs, you can make a playlist of all of the songs and hand this to your DJ to play. This way, you’ll ensure that people are up on the dance-floor throwing some shapes to their favourite tracks.
Live bands are also a great way to express your music tastes. If you love jazz, you could source a funky old school band. If a particular artist means a lot to you as a couple, you could secure the services of a top quality tribute act.
To think totally outside the box, you could take your first dance away from the romantic slow number and go flash mob style alongside your best man, bridesmaids, and parents. No one would forget your wedding in a hurry.
After the ceremony, there is an inevitable lull as people congregate at the reception venue, waiting for the traditional photographs to be taken, the wedding breakfast to be set up and for the bride and groom to freshen up. There’s a lot of loitering and polite small talk amongst your guest. To prevent them from getting bored, and to add another element of fun to your day, why not consider hiring a photo booth from a specialist company such as Booth Boy. These inventive little cubicles can be set up in your venue easily and contain a variety of high-quality props to create visually stunning and fun shots. Break away from tradition and get some photos of your wedding guests at their most carefree.
You could also think about sourcing some mammoth outdoor games like giant Connect 4 and Jenga to pass the time as people wait outside your venue on a balmy day. These games can also be utilised long into the evening as your guests mooch around and enjoy the ambience of the setting.
Are you going to have a sit down meal or a buffet type eating experience? Either way, you don’t have to go down the prawn cocktail or vol-au-vents route. Think about your favourite food or a meal that you had with your partner that was special and emulate this for your guests. It could be the first meal you had together, the awesome cuisine you had on your first vacation together, or it could be the first meal that your spouse ever cooked for you.
Every wedding has got to have a cake, or two, or fifty. Depending on whether you are going traditional three tier or contemporary cupcakes, your choice of sweet treat can elevate your wedding from normal to extraordinary. You may want to consider places, hobbies, colours and words that mean something to you as the happy couple. If your partner proposed on the beach under the stars, emulate that in your cake complete with fondant figurines. Theme cakes are becoming more popular as people shirk away from tradition and opt for the more bespoke. Don’t feel that you have to go for the dry old fruit cake that seems to be par for the course at weddings. If you love red velvet cake, get someone to bake it. If lime and coconut is your sponge of choice, go for it.
The Ultimate Personalisation
When sharing your nuptials with your nearest and dearest, it’s great to add those corny touches. It wouldn’t be a wedding day without them. Set up a projector and as you and your guests are chomping on your wedding breakfast show them a slideshow of your lives and how they became intertwined. Begin with photos of both of you as children, followed by adolescence and uni days. Then move onto all of your happiest moments together, all culminating in the time when your new spouse took a selfie of the two of you, and you were photo bombed by a goat.
Telling your soulmate that you are going to spend the rest of your life with them in front of your family and friends is special. You only have one chance to get it right, and you don’t want the shackles of tradition preventing you from achieving the wedding day of your dreams. Allow yourself to think outside the box and be inspired to go for the unconventional option when planning your big day.

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine
Let us face it, a beautiful woman makes a bigger impression than a plain looking woman. On top of that a woman with luscious hair will be noticed first when next to a woman with bad hair. There was a time when wearing a wig was uncommon and women would just spend lots of money going to a salon to have their hair cut in the latest hairstyle or have it permed. Hair is our crowning glory and a lot of people spend a lot of time making a fuss over it. Good thing that nowadays anyone can wear a wig whenever they want to. It is a given though that the wig should look real so the quality of the hair piece is important.
Wigs, hair replacement systems, extensions etc. can now be purchased anywhere. There are many online stores where you can buy them and one of the more trusted store is Divatress, a leading e-commerce company committed to becoming the most loved wig retailer on the web. No matter if it is weaves, lace front wigs, half wigs, wigs, braids, ponytails etc., Divatress can provide it for you.

Getting engaged is a big deal and if you are finally taking the plunge and moving your relationship to the next step, you have a lot to consider. Firstly, congratulations! Proposals are often supposed to be romantic, but most people don’t realise that proposing is so personal. Some women love the idea of a lavish, public affair, and others would cringe at the very thought. Hopefully, by being at a stage you wish you to propose to the woman you love, you know her enough to know which type she is!
Once you’ve trawled the Tacori engagement rings at Whiteflash.com and made your choice, you’ve got to keep that ring safe until you decide how you want to pop the big question. Proposing should be something unique to you as a couple and be memorable for the two of you. There are the very traditional methods, such as a ring in the champagne glass at a restaurant, or rose petals spelling a proposal on the bed. The thing is, traditions are traditions because they have been done over and over again! If you want your proposal to stand out and be unique, you’ll love these three ideas:
Adventure. If you are a couple who love to go on long hikes and seek out new places with a view to die for, why not combine one of your ordinary adventures with an out of the ordinary proposal? Plan a trek up a nearby mountain, make it early morning so that you catch the last vestiges of sunrise. Get to the peak of the mountain and find an exciting proposal spot. Have your girlfriend take a panoramic photo and as she pans around to you, you’ll be on one knee.
Sports. There are couples out there that go absolutely nuts for certain sports; it’s a shared love and one that can be incorporated into a proposal. If your girlfriend is a baseball nut, endeavour to have a baseball signed by her favourite player, then slice it in half and nestle the ring inside for her to see. If basketball is your sport of choice, speak to the stadium owners and see if you can get a proposal lit up on the ‘Kiss Cam’ and give her the surprise of her life.
Sweethearts. Have you been together since your young school days? Did you used to pass notes in class in the silence? If you’ve stayed childhood sweethearts, whether high school or middle school, collaborate with your old school and arrange to have a note in the locker she used to use with your proposal on it – old school style. Set up a party in the school hall prom-style with all your friends and family afterward.
Your proposal doesn’t have to be a standard one, but making it unique and personal to you should be the goal. The way you propose sets up how you imagine married life to be; make it a good one!
Collecting is a serious hobby for many and a casual pastime for others; from coins and baseball cards to Jim Shore figurines and garden gnomes, the search for and acquisition of the next piece in a collection is something that delights hobbyists from every corner of the globe. While the steps to becoming a collector are certainly simple, the evolution of any collection can span years.
Although it seems obvious, new collectors must decide what to collect; more specifically, they must choose an area on which to focus. For example, a collector of sports memorabilia may want to collect only baseball memorabilia or items from a certain team or player. Others focus on a certain period in history for their unique collections, making the hobby one that is highly subject to personal preference.
Research is another important part of becoming a successful collector. After all, learning about the most common, rare and highly sought items in any area will make it far easier to recognize a piece that must be immediately added to the collection or reject one that is more expensive than it should be.
Like any hobby, maintaining a budget is a good way for collectors to ensure that they are not exceeding the amount of money that they can afford to spend on the activity. However, another important part of becoming a collector is to determine whether the collection is intended as personal, investment or both. Similarly, researching prices is a good idea not only for budgetary concerns, but for expanding the collector’s horizons in terms of finding pieces that he or she never even knew existed.
Finding New Pieces for a Collection
While shopping for collectibles online is often the fastest, most convenient way to bolster the size of any collection, there are still plenty of other ways to unearth those items that are hard to find. Although shopping standard retail stores may not yield the results that a collector is hoping for, those who take the time to explore secondhand stores, church rummage sales and auctions may find interesting additions for their collections.
Estate sales are also an excellent way to find new items for a collection. However, instead of waiting to stumble upon a sale at a former collector’s estate, peruse forums and other online communication resources to determine when and where such events will occur.
