Sodalite Beads

In Facebook and Multiply sites, I saw online people make bracelets and necklaces and sell them. I was challenged in making them too. Well, it is not that easy especially when you use clay designs. It is hard, much better if I buy them wholesale and I will put it all together. Asides from clays, we can also use beads such as Sodalite Beads. It is my first time to encounter the word Sodalite, so I searched the internet about it. In an article, it says that Sodalite is a rich royal blue mineral widely enjoyed as an ornamental gemstone. This kind of gem have healing properties like it brings order and calmness to the mind, brings emotional balance, calms panic attacks, balances the metabolism, boosts the immune system and overcomes calcium deficiencies. It enhances self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-trust. I was amazed after reading this article, it has healing effect in our body. Cannot wait to have one.


I love to go home and relax in a comfy place, watching television or playing with the kids. I want to have this "sofa bed" type that I can sit or lie down. I just browse the right one, it is the daybed. Daybeds are used as beds as well for lounging, reclining and seating in common rooms. Curling up on a daybed with a good book or a favorite magazine is one of the joys of life. Napping away an hour or two is easy on this type of accent furniture. Their frames can be made out of wood, metal or a combination of wood and metal. Daybeds typically feature a back and sides and come in Twin Size but offer a range of bed prices to fit any budget. I want to get two daybeds for my two daughters, I love color pink. See the photo below, that kind of design I want for them.

fire pit

In my elementary days, I joined girl scout. That is the only time that I experienced a fire camp, singing songs and story telling. Well, it is easy to make fire using wood sticks than building fire pits. Fire pits have been in existence for a very long time and despite many technological advancements since the advent of man's use of fire, they have remained a popular item because of their versatility. It is nice to have a fire pit outdoors especially when you go camping. There are many methods of constructing fire pits, but basic options are described. Pre-made fire pits are the most common form of fire pits and can be purchased from a store while assembled fire pits are different from pre-made fire pits and because they are built according to an individual's wishes, these encompass a wider variety of styles and functions. It is to build a fire pit. First step is lay out the bricks, second is mark the pit location. Third step is create a level trench for the Blocks, fourth is fill the trench. Fifth step is lay and level the first course, sixth step is assemble the walls. The seventh step is to fill the pit and the last step is cap the blocks. You can also watch videos online for these easy steps.

rustic vanity

It is really my dream to have our own car, business and a house to stay with. At present, we still live in my parents house while my husband is working outside the country for 6 years already. Inside a home, it is normal for us to buy furniture in a department store. When it comes to decorating homes, you can choose from variety of ways and styles that are very unique like using woods. If you have a specific rustic vanity design in mind, can build exactly what you need. When you are into rustic vanity, you can use cedar logs, aspen logs, barn wood, montana log, lamberjack log, and many more. In bathrooms, choose the type of wood to match the theme of design and decor bathroom scale height, countertop and sink, finish, and price. I am not good into interior design but I want to learn how to do it so that my husband and I will design our home all the details that we have in our minds.

sunless tanning booths

In our country, most of the tourists go to the beach. Most likely, they want to be tan under the sun. No more worries, there is no need for you to go to the beach just to be tanned. There are now sunless tanning booths that hydrates and transforms your skin in just minutes. If you do not want to use sunless tanning, you can do natural sunscreen. Artificial sunscreen absorbs ultraviolet light and prevents it from reaching the skin. Most sunless tanning products do not contain sunscreen, therefore, they do not provide any protection against ultraviolet rays when the person is outdoors. For more details, you can browse the internet, watch demos and locate a salon or spa near you

mannigton laminate

Having a relaxing home is very nice and we should be comfortable also, not just the ambiance and surroundings but also the flooring that we are walking. Having laminate floors are extremely durable and attractive. They are scratch and stain resistant and ideally designed for areas with a high degree of foot traffic, especially by children and pets. This type of flooring is very easy to maintain and does not fade even in direct sunlight and it imitates the aspect of traditional wood and the biggest advantage of it is that they are very easy to install. You should choose mannigton laminate flooring because it emulates the elegance of porcelain tile and warmth of hardwood and it is easy to maintain. Laminate flooring is the cheapest floor compared with hardwood and bamboo.

personal background check

Right now, everywhere we are we cannot trust anyone. In our country, there are lots of maids that are for hire but we cannot tell if they are the right one for you because we do not know what is their family or past work background. Asides from maids, some hire investigators to check the personal background check of a certain person. In finding a job, the company that you are applying will conduct a personal background check on you if they will hire you or not. When it comes to hiring the right employee, what you don’t know CAN hurt you! In an online blog I read, it says that when you hire people, skills, qualifications, scores on administered tests--these should not be the end of the list you should prioritize. There is a growing list of employers who have suffered setbacks in projects and have lost office equipment due to deceptive employees. Hiring a wrong person for the job is one thing, but to pose danger to your staff and your office, especially when your work involves your very own family, is completely another. A background check is important.

Casablanca ceiling fans

We have fans around the house, stand fans, box fan and a ceiling fan. Here in our country, it is very hot. I have a 4 months old baby but the stand fan that I have in the room will not reach her in the crib. That is why I am planning to buya a new ceiling fan. They say Casablanca ceiling fans are good. Fans never actually cool air, unlike air-conditioning equipment, but use significantly less power. Unlike air conditioners, fans only move air—they do not directly change its temperature. Did you know that the first ceiling fans appeared in the early 1860s and 1870s, in the United States. At that time, they were not powered by any form of electric motor. Instead, a stream of running water was used, in conjunction with a turbine, to drive a system of belts which would turn the blades of two-blade fan units.
