power chargers for travelers!

In the modern and developed society, we live in, technology has become an inseparable part of our daily life. Those who love to travel, will agree with me that technology is particularly useful when we are on the road. I remember, the last time, I travelled abroad, I took with me the following devices: a lap top, a camera, a phone, my Kindle reader, a hair-dryer, an mp3 player and a tablet (simply because it had good GPS apps and I also played some Fruit Ninja while queuing here and there). Anyway, all of the above mentioned help us make our trip more enjoyable.

The Psychological Benefits of Owning a Pet

2 Apr , 2013  

benefits of having a dog

A few days ago I shared my story with the jack Russell Joe and the cat Alice. Stephen and I had to take care of them, while their two owners were away on a trip. I got myself thinking, why would people pay for a pet, clean a mess they haven’t made, pay for food and put in so much effort into taking care of it? Then all the psychological benefits of owning a fluffy friend started flooding my mind. And they are many! I will briefly discuss a few.

Cleaning Dog Messes and Other CATastrophies

28 Mar , 2013  

hate cleaning pet messes

Stephen and I decided when we got married that we won’t have any pets until our children are a bit older. The reason for this is that we want to learn how to be a good spouses to each other, then learn how to be good parents. If we get a dog before we have a baby, I will feel like I am putting my child at a risk and I won’t feel at ease to give the pet away either. So why am I writing about cleaning pet messes? Funny story!

The Ultimate Carpet Cleaning Solution

17 Feb , 2013

Did you know that the air at home is 200% more polluted than the air outside? And I thought we had a problem with the nasty emissions of the cars, while it turns out that the problem is hiding in our cleaning solutions. Because of the harsh chemicals in cleaning solutions, air fresheners, washing liquids and other seamlessly helpful detergents, we breathe poisonous vapours. Another research supports this finding! Stay-at-home wives were 54% more likely to develop cancer, compared to those who work outside. For this reason I am suggesting you to turn to green and natural solutions that won’t trigger allergies, asthma, cancer or other health problems.

Go Home Hollywood! You Are Drunk!

drinking in movies

Very soon we will witness the 2013 Academy Awards. In my opinion this edition, as every other, is nothing more, but just  the movie industry giving itself a pat on the back and a few Oscars. Not so fast, this time, okay?! According to latest psychological research on teenage binge drinking, a large part of the responsibility for this social issue lies within the film industry.  More…

Romantic Gifts – Do’s and Don’ts (For Him)

24 Jan , 2013  

hate cleaning, but love romantic gifts

February is quickly approaching and St. Valentine’s Day with it and I am here to give you a few tips on how to prepare for the holidays with a good gift. To be honest,  in our family we decided that we don’t want to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Instead, we should do little things without an occasion, to put a smile on the other person’s face and make every day special. For this reason we have never celebrated Valentine’s day and refused to participate in all the craze. However, that doesn’t mean that we don’t like romantic gestures and we don’t exchange gifts. In fact, I think that we have exchanged more gifts than most couples, simply because we don’t wait for a whole year to celebrate our love. Here is what I have learned from all this time.
