The Timeless Beauty and Versatility of Fur Gilets

The fur gilet has always been a beautiful and versatile part of women’s fashion. From the flappers to the edgy rock stars and to the elegant celebrities, women have worn fur for ages. Even today, this classic coat can be paired with various garments to create absolutely stunning outfits. Have you ever put on your little black dress and felt as if something was missing? Are you still cold in that favorite sweater of yours? Try a beautiful fur gilet. Guaranteed to turn heads and drop jaws, you can stay fashionable, dry, AND warm on those cold and dreary days.

Take the little black dress for example. You can channel your inner screen siren and dress your outfit up with a classic, fashionable twist. A red dress, red stiletto’s, your favorite diamonds, and a beautiful snow white gilet will make you the talk of the town. A classic smoky eye and beautiful red lips will compliment your outfit, and even complete your femme fatale aesthetic. Wrapped up in white fur, red lips and diamonds, you’ll have a timeless look that would make even Elizabeth Taylor jealous!

For a darker and edgier look, go with an all black ensemble. Black heels, black dress, and black fur! Pair the outfit with a little eyeliner, dark lips, and black nails. You’ll feel as if you’re a gothic queen walking all in black through the pure white snow and gray skies. Add some creepy costume jewelry and you can feel fierce even on Halloween.

You may be thinking, “Hey! I can’t dress up every day, fur doesn’t seem very practical!” However, that is simply not the case. You can feel glamorous every day in fur. Some comfy flats, skinny jeans, and your favorite sweater can be dressed up with adding a simple fur gilet. In that outfit, you’ll look like you belong in the trendsetting streets of SoHo! You can even keep a professional and cozy appearance in a white button down, nice slacks, a pair of pumps and some fur. There are so many possibilities with gilets, just one can change your entire wardrobe.

It may seem like only people like Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, or Lady GaGa can afford a fabulous piece of fur, but there are options for regular people who don’t make millions of dollars a year. There are many websites that offer real fur at a affordable price for those fashionistas who can’t drop $600 on a fox fur coat. For example, furgilets.co.uk offer beautiful fox fur at great prices to everyday women.

You don’t have to be rich or famous to feel the luxury of a fur gilet. At affordable prices, you can feel for yourself the soft pelt and warmth it provides. With its timeless beauty and versatility, you can make any outfit pop with a little bit of fur!

The Merits of Pendant Light Fittings

pendant light

pendant light

For anyone who is unfamiliar with the term, a pendant light is a type of house lighting where the light hangs from the ceiling of the room from a single flex. The lighting unit itself is suspended at the end of the electrical cord, and thus to a degree resembles a pendant on a chain, hence the name.

There are many people who, in an ideal world, would fancy the idea of having chandelier lighting. However, in almost all cases, the grandeur of such light fittings is out of proportion with rooms of modest size, and to fit them in average homes would invite ridicule. In addition, not many people can afford the cost of such expensive light fittings. Therefore, for ordinary folk, pendant light fittings are an acceptable substitute. They will not win any prizes for opulence, at least in the true sense of the word, but they are certainly a tad more stylish than bottom of the range light fittings. As such, they are popular with those who fancy something with a modicum of style but which doesn’t cost a bomb.

Pendant style lights feature an enclosed fitting, unlike cheap electric lights where the lamp has to be covered with a shade, which must be purchased separately. When you purchase a light with a pendant fitting, you need not concern yourself with the chore of buying a separate lamp shade. All you have to do is choose the pendant light that suits your tastes and needs, and after that the job is pretty much done. Of course, you will have to install the light, but you will not face the awkward task of having to climb up to attach a shade to the light fitting. Consequently, for people who dislike household chores or who are not adept at DIY, pendant light fittings are vastly preferable. They provide a quick and easy lighting solution with no fuss involved.

refinishing hardwood floors

refinishing hardwood floors

Refinishing Hardwood Floors is not something that should be tried by the inexperienced.  The degree of difficulty for completing a task of this nature varies from surface to surface.  Each species of hardwood that is used for the creation of a floor reacts differently to the techniques that can be used to resurface them.  Without the proper knowledge and experience a home owner runs the risk of causing further damage.  Hardwood floors are subject to being scratched, dented or grooved through accidents and improper maintenance methods.  This variation in damage can result in a number of different concerns for the home owner wanting to repair them.  Each of these forms of damage requires a different technique to complete the repair process.  Each technique requires special tools and knowledge to perform correctly.

How much does refinishing hardwood floors cost?  This is a question that several home owners ask before making a decision on whether or not to proceed with hiring a professional or trying the task themselves.  Unfortunately there is no sure fire way to provide an average estimate that will be useful for each and every home owner.  They type of hardwood present in the home in conjunction with what type of damage is apparent will have a significant impact on the estimate that is offered.  The cost of refinishing hardwood floors will also be affected by the square footage of the floor being resurfaced.  In some cases hidden damage may not be evident until the refinishing process has begun, which not only affects the overall cost but the degree of difficulty involved with the procedure as well.

Refinishing prefinished hardwood floors may be an easier task to accomplish for the Do It Yourself crowd.  The process of resurfacing a package of pre-surfaced hardwood flooring should be as simple as sanding off the current coat and replacing it with the desired stain and protective coating.  It will be necessary to take precaution when performing this procedure as it will still be possible to cause damage.  Sanding wood unevenly will create an unnatural feel to the floor once it is installed.  It takes a steady hand and attention to detail to perform this procedure correctly.  If the home owner has access to an automated planer the process will be significantly less complicated and provide a smooth and precise surface to work with when applying the stain.

A Summer Pool in the Midst of Winter

For those who love to swim, and own a pool, swimming pool heaters are a god sent.  One of the most peaceful activities in life, is to swim.  Allowing the water to embrace your body, floating with the waves, moving smoothly and gracefully from one side of the pool to the other, all the while exercising your body and mind  and relaxing at the same time.  For many of us the swimming season is a short season of 3-5 months depending on where we live.  With electric or solar swimming pool heaters, not only can we extend the swimming season at our own pools, but we can swim in a warmer pool during cooler summer nights if we choose to.  To choose the best heater for you, here is a list of advantages and disadvantages of each one of these heaters:

◦     You won’t have to wait very long for your pool is heated after a cold period of time as the heater pumps are quick and effective with a low recovery time.

◦     Regardless of where you live, you can enjoy the fantastic feeling of swimming in a warm pool while cold rain is pouring, or float on your back and watch the skies and appreciate their beauty.

Disadvantages:

◦     Because Solar pool heating systems are quite durable, and are designed to last between twenty to thirty years, you can enjoy your comfortable and warm swimming pool for many years to come.

◦     Solar energy is thoroughly environmentally friendly, which can allow you to swim with a clean conscience knowing that your warm pool is not harming the planet in any way.

Disadvantages:

◦     Solar energy works only when the sun is out, so you can only swim during the days that enjoy a clear sky and sunshine.

◦     Solar heaters take a while to heat up the water, and take a while to bring the water up to a comfortable temperature.

◦     Your solar collector area will need to be as large as 50-80% of the size of your pool to be effective.

Buying the Best Vacuum For Hardwood Floors

One of the most overlooked areas of interest for a home owner is the opportunity to purchase the best vacuum for hardwood floors currently on the market.  Hardwood floors are generally assumed to be easier to clean and maintain than those constructed from carpeting or tiling solutions.  This could not be further from the truth.  Hardwood floors actually are some of the most difficult solutions to keep clean and maintain.  The surface of these flooring solutions are often coated with a protective finish which over the course of time will become scratched or damaged and require the reparation work of a qualified professional.

While the majority of home owners having hardwood floors begin the process of caring for their floors with a conventional broom and dustpan in conjunction with a mop and bucket full of hot water, this method can actually cause more harm than good.  These cleaning utensils are harsh and cause damage of some sort even if it is of a minimal and concealed configuration.  Owning and operating the best vacuum for hardwood floors will provide the home owner with a cost effective care and maintenance plan that will protect their investments well into the future.

There are many opinions and reviews offered throughout the industry regarding which model is the best vacuum for hardwood floors.  These opinions and reviews are offered by the manufacturers, distributors and customers that are familiar with the various models that are available.  The majority of cleaning utensils that fall into this category are inefficient and unsuccessful at providing the level of protection expected by the cautious home owner.  Concerned clients will need to conduct a fair amount of research in the various areas regarding models from manufacturers and the components of the system they are considering prior to making a purchase.

Best Canister Vacuum for Hardwood Floors

Some home owners will prefer to purchase and use the best canister vacuum for hardwood floors as opposed to a standard and conventional stand up system complete with a bag for collecting the dirt and debris.  These clients falsely believe that seeing is believing and the appearance of dirt in the canister makes them feel comfortable using the system.  The truth of the matter is canister style cleaners are no more effective than the cheaper models offered in garden variety department stores.  In other words they do not work any better and in fact can cause the same amount of damage even when used as advertised.
