What a Holiday!

I recently went on a holiday to Brazil. The holiday was absolutely fantastic, I had such a great time in this magnificent country. The weather there was unbelievable and It’s sad that it had to end.

We stayed at Brazil for 1 week and I personally do not think that was long enough! I wish I could have stayed longer. We stayed at a 4.5 star hotel and it was a very nice hotel. The hotel we stayed in had everything. They had an indoor gym, sauna, hot tubs, pool tables, arcade, pool and almost everything. I had a so much fun taking advantage of their sauna’s and hot tubs. The hot tubs were perfect for just relaxing in the evening after a long day out in the sun. I really enjoyed the hot tub and I wish I had one in my home, sadly I can’t take it home with me.

All in all the holiday was amazing and I really did enjoy my time here. I will definitely be visiting this country again sometime in the near future!

Popular Wedding Rings

Diamond wedding rings are the most popular at the moment. The reason why they are so popular is because of the materials used to make them and how elegant they look. Diamonds are one of the most popular gems that are used for jewellery at the moment. There are many reason why they are so popular but here are some:

platinum ring

  • Diamonds are very rare
  • They have unique crystal look to them
  • They are very shiny and attractive
  • Extremely tough and durable
  • They are very valuable

These are a few main reason why diamonds are so popular in todays market. Wedding rings in general are also very popular. If you live in the UK one of the best place you can go to visit is Birmingham Jewellery Quarter. Wedding rings in Jewellery Quarter are very popular, in fact it’s one of the most popular places in the UK for wedding rings. Jewellery Quarter has built a reputation over it’s time as being the heart of fine jewellery. If fine jewellery is what you are after why not pay a visit?

 

Most Expensive Rings

There are all sorts of wedding rings out there. Wedding rings that vary from materials, styles, sizes, looks and prices. The most common materials include, gold, silver, stainless steel and platinum. Platinum wedding rings are the most expensive, but why?

The reason why platinum is very popular is mainly due to it’s advantages. Platinum is naturally found as a white metal that won’t ever require the need for re-plating. White gold has to be rhodium plated to achieve its similar white shine. Platinum is also a stronger metal than gold, allowing it it be more durable to wear and tear.

Platinum wedding rings

Platinum weddings rings are often found to have at least one gem attached to the ring. The most common gem is the diamond, other gems can include, crystals, ruby, sapphire and emeralds. When buying a diamond platinum wedding it is important to make sure the diamond is certified. Certified diamonds are essential for value for money and piece of mind, so you know what you have purchased is a genuine diamond.

Have you had your ducts cleaned?

I recently had my ducts cleaned for many reasons I wasn’t aware off for many years until I heard of the positives and negatives of having dirty ductwork. After I realised why it was so important to me I decided it would be great idea to get them cleaned. You may be wondering why is air duct cleaning so important, some of you may already know but I will say it anyway.

The reason why duct cleaning is important is because it is our supplier of fresh clean air for us to breathe and live healthy. As you can imagine having bad quality air isn’t good for us so having dirty ducts is the cause of us having bad quality air. The air quality from dirty ducts can be up to 80% more polluted than the air outside!

Duct

What are the signs of dirty ducts? Apart from the obvious such as clumps of dust, dead insects, cobwebs, insect droppings and dead insects there are other less obvious signs such as bacteria, infections and mould that can be building up deep inside your ducts. It is important you clean your ducts whenever you get the chance.

Storing Water

There are many ways to store water for whatever use it may be. Water can be stored in different ways and using different techniques. Storing water is an ideal way to have quick and easy access to large amounts of water. There are many uses for the water that is stored such as:

  • Irrigation
  • Harvesting
  • Gardening
  • Water for washing
  • Water for drinking
  • Fire retention

rainwater_harvesting

And any other use that requires water (water is only drinkable on certain circumstances). The most common way for one to store water is through water tanks. The most practical way to collect water is through a rainwater harvesting system. This system allows you to collect naturally purified water (Rain). The water that runs down your roof is then ran through a land drainage pipe to into a a filtering system then stored in a water tank. this process is very cheap and can save you a lot of money too as well as supplying you with lots of fresh clean water naturally.

Cheaper Alternative For Heating

I have been heating up my home the traditional way for years and they are very costly. The way I been heating up my home was through the traditional central heating system however, theres a brand new and amazing system. That system is underfloor heating.

The reason why underfloor heating is miles better than central heating is because the heating is just so efficient. Not only will you benefit from warm floors you also benefit from lots of other things such as;

  • Equal heat distribution
  • Very low running costs
  • No maintenance required
  • Out of the way and sight
  • Frees up more space due to the removal of the central heating system
  • Save up to 33% on heating bills!

I am so happy with my underfloor heating system. It is ideal for ultimate comfort in your home. One thing I noticed a lot was the fact there weren’t any cold spots, each part of my home felt equally as warm which is a great bonus.

Resolving My Heating Issue

I had to call an emergency plumber out because I had serious issues with my heating. The issues I was having was the heating didn’t ever seem to reach the temperature it was set to. Another issue I was getting a lot was the heating seemed to just not work sometimes, I found it really strange.

Plumber

I woke up one morning to find my home completely cold, I had a look at the boiler setting to make sure it wasn’t the boiler and the heating was set to constant so I was very confused. This is when I decided to call a plumber. He came quickly and accessed my heating and told me what the common issues with heating are and that I could be suffering from the same. He told me that the whole of the inside of my heating piping are corroded and I will need to buy new piping. He told me he will order them from me and fit them when they arrive. I am currently waiting for them to arrive and I thought this post would be interesting for others with similar problems

The Next Step In Our Relationship

My partner and I are going to get engaged! Yeah, its means so much to us. We have been together for almost 4 years and we feel like we have known each other for a very long time now and I think it’s about time we make our relationship a much more serious one, because we do love each other and to be honest I don’t see myself with any other person.

Gold wedding ring

Now that we have decided together that we want to get engaged, I realised that I would need a really nice engagement ring for her. Something special something really special for her. So I decided to pop into the shop I bought my designer watches from because I remember they had some truly amazing jewellery and I know the owners too, they are wonderful people and they also sell engagement rings in Birmingham. hey helped me choose the perfect ring and also congratulated me. At least I know where to go to for all my jewellery needs. Design centre jewellery has it all.

3 Steps for Language Learning

Learning a new language couldn’t be easier with these 3 simple steps. The 3 simple steps that I will be covering are, in my opinion the best way to learn a new language. These are the steps I have used to learn my languages, I can fluently speak, French, German, Spanish and Italian and I am also taking Chinese in London. I also know others have tried them too and they have said it has helped them a lot. So, what are these steps? you may be wondering, don’t worry I am about to explain them now.

language lessons

Find your learning style

The first step is to find your learning style. Your learning style is the way your body and mind like to remember and learn things. You can find your learning style with a learning style test.

Know your learning style

Knowing your learning style is important because this is the way you and your body likes to learn.

Adapt to your learning style

Adapting to your learning style is the key part here. Once you have found out and know what your learning style is, it is important you tailor your learning to that specific style the most because it’s your preferred way of learning.

So Close to Driving

I am a student who is currently studying law. I really enjoy studying law and I will have to pass this subject to help get that step closer to the job I desire. I also want to pass my driving test but I can’t pass until I learn. I am currently taking out time that I have free of studying to take driving lessons in Birmingham. I am enjoying learning how to drive and can not wait to pass. The reasons why I want to pass is because driving opens doors to jobs, more freedom, much more reliable way to travel and it’s so convenient.

Cartoon Car

I have already passed my theory, I just need to get more confident behind the wheel and I should be good to go. I have had a lot of lessons now so it shouldn’t be long before I pass and I am so excited.

Cheapest Water Supply

Rainwater harvesting is one of the best ways to make the most out of the purist supply of water by collecting it as it falls and using it as a substitute water supply, after all it is free and doesn’t cost to supply yourself rainwater, but it does cost to have water treated and pumped through your piping.

There are many ways in which you can harvest rainwater, the most common and efficient way is to have a rainwater harvesting system installed on your roofing. all the run off water will fall onto your roofing and collected into a water tank, (large water tanks are the best). It is very important that the water is clear from contaminants.

AnimatedRainwater

The water collected from the harvesting system can be used for a wide range of things such as watering your garden, washing your car, drinking and many other water related issues. Having this system installed will also save you a load of money on water bills.

Perfect Wedding Ring

When looking for that perfect wedding you know it usually requires a lot of shopping around to find that perfect one. If you are looking for something special, something more unique and stylish that a plain old wedding band then, yes, you can have a hard time trying to find the perfect ring.

bespoke-3

The reason why I can relate to this so well is because I purchased a diamond wedding ring a few months back before I got married. I love my partner and I only wanted the best possible ring for her so, as you can imagine, I was very fussy. I was looking for a unique yet stylish ring platinum ring. The reason why I chose platinum instead of the gold or silver, is because platinum is the most expensive and the least common making it ideal. I wanted the ring to include at least one certified diamond as there are many replica diamonds and it’s not so easy to tell the difference to an untrained eye. I did some shopping and I eventually found, what I thought was, the perfect ring. If you are having a hard time trying to find certified diamonds or a platinum wedding rings, I suggest you do a bit of browsing on the internet and check up on what he company guarantees.

 

Number 1 Printing Company Experience

I was looking for a professional print company based in Birmingham. I have been looking for a while and I finally found a print company who provided me with the best service I could ask for and offered amazing and innovative print ideas for my business. What I am writing about in this post is kind of a review on my experience with Big in Ink, who are the number printers in Birmingham.

Cartoon Business Card

So I came across Big in Ink based in Birmingham because I was in the need of professional printing and innovative business promotional prints. I was generally impressed with the customer service everyone who I spoke to dealt with me in a positive and friendly manner and offered me great solutions to my business promotion. They showed me their portfolio and what they could do for me along with my business cards and even offered me graphic design ideas to help promote my image. I couldn’t have asked for anymore. The prints they provided were of excellent quality and I will definitely use them again!

Gold Jewellery

Gold jewellery has been around for many thousands of years. Gold is a very popular metal when it comes to jewellery because it is a very pure metal and it doesn’t tarnish with or react with other chemicals. Gold is also very malleable, a centimetre of gold can be flattened into many meters long. Pure gold is very soft and easily manipulated making it ideal for jewellery and making jewellery. Gold is also very attractive, it comes in a deep yellowish orange colour and is very shiny. Gold usually resembles wealth and luxuries too.

jewellery shops

Some of todays most popular jewellery is 9ct gold jewellery, jewellery such as; 9ct gold chains and 9ct gold hooped earrings are very common at this moment in time. The reason why they might be so popular is because 9ct gold isn’t as deep of a colour there for, it pretty much will suit any outfit or style. Gold hoops and chains are usually simple and elegant

Heating problem

I recently started to have real issues with my heating, the heating itself didn’t seem to be  working properly. It was giving out very little heat and all of sudden stopped working totally. I started to panic when my heating stopped working, the weather is freezing here and my family needs the heating , they cant live without it so I had to call someone out to have a look as soon as possible. I called an emergency plumber to take a look at my heating and boiler.

He was very friendly, he spoke very nicely to me and he was very professional. He assisted me with my problem straight away and told me why my heating had suddenly stopped working. He told me that the heating failure was due to the amount of debris built up in my heating so it started to corrode the lining of the pipes and block the water from travelling through the radiator. He concluded that I should install a power flush system on my radiators. He explained what a power flush was and how it will clear all the debris and will stop it from forming.

He’s Infested!

I am worried about my neighbour, he seems to have an infestation of rats. I have seen a few rats scurrying across his back garden. It worries me because I have known my neighbour for around 10 years. We have become really close friends and he doesn’t answer his mobile or house phone. I started to wonder if he has maybe gone on holiday.  I am pretty sure he would have told me before he went that he was going so I can keep an eye an eye on his property.

Rat

I was thinking about calling pest control Birmingham, just because I didn’t want to call the pest control and fro them to say we can’t do anything because the owner isn’t in. I just do not want them to start infesting my home. I do think he has gone on a holiday and left his phone at home or theres no network where he is. In the end I did call pest control to put pest prevention solutions around my home to stop them from spreading in to my garden. I do hope I can here from him soon!

Say Bye to Cold Floors

We have been putting up with cold flooring for hundreds of years. Its a problem that seems like no one has ever bothered to address. Instead of working on a way to not have cold flooring other items such as socks and footwear have been invented for your home so your feet are not not cold. Today we finally have a solution to cold flooring so there isn’t any need for footwear whilst in your own home.

The solution is under floor heating. Yes, underfloor heating. Such a simple idea yet so effective. What under floor heating does is heats up your floor by flowing warm water though a system of piping beneath your flooring thus generating enough heat to keep your floors warm and heat up your entire room too from the ground up. This new solution is really convenient as you do not need a boiler or the radiators you previously had in your home. You can also save a substantial amount of money per month whilst having under floor heating installed.

Luxury Hot Tubs For Less

Are you tired of not  getting the full relaxation out of a long soak in the bath? Have you had a very long and tiring day and you are looking for a new way to relax? Or are you simply just looking for a new way to relief stress? If one of those scenarios relate to you great! If not you can still continue reading as I might go over something that will interest you.

Why Clean Your Duct Systems?

So the question is, why clean your duct systems? I am going to answer this query using only facts.

 

Here are a few reasons why you should keep your ducts clean by getting ductwork cleaning:

Fact 1: A shocking 9 out of 10 systems failures are caused by dirt and dust.

Fact 2: Most people spend around 60-90% of their time indoors, the air quality indoors is found to be 70x more polluted than the air outdoors!

Fact 3: Diseases such as Legionnaire’s started off in ducts and had killed many people. This disease also spread though kitchen ducts and infected many people. (kitchen duct cleaning is vital)

Fact 4: 50% of all illnesses are effected by the poor quality of the polluted air.

Fact 5: Clean ventilation systems can restore capacity while lessoning the running time.

 

If you are still not convinced? Take a look at this picture below. This could be how your ducts look right now!

Do not let the quality of the air you breathe affect the quality of your health and others around and get your ducts inspected as soon as you can. It is very important.

 

Eco Friendly Sewage Disposal

I am a owner of , I would like to say, a very successful hotel and restaurant. My hotel & restaurant has been rated 4.3 out 5 and for that I am very happy as today competitive market trying to get recognised can be very tough.

As you may know the sheer size of my property and how many people will accommodate these rooms plus the amount of bathroom usage of each hotel room. The hotel itself starts accumulate a lot of sewage. I feel guilty and I cannot get rid of waste the usual way that people dispose of it through sewage pipes that lead into disposal site. I decided I would fit in a sewage treatment plant.

What a sewage treatment plant does is it breaks down the sewage and turns it into a liquid that is safe and perfectly legal to drain into the sea. This was a great idea and perfect for my needs and I wont feel guilty.

I was also told that I could have purchased a septic tank for my restaurant but I wasn’t sure it would fit my needs as much as the sewage treatment plant.

Moving Abroad

I have been interested in moving abroad for a very long time now but I haven’t committed myself to go through with it yet because I knew once crucial thing for me would be to learn the native language of the country I will be moving to because that will have a huge impact on how I settle in the country itself.

The country I want to move to is France. Luckily for me learning french isn’t too hard it is in fact one of the easier languages to learn so that is a bonus. I had to just try and motivate myself to learn it and take the time out from work just to learn the language. I found a tutor not too far away from my home who was really good and helped me all the way. I can now speak fluently in French and I am currently gathering everything I need and finalising agreements so I can head out to one of my favourite countries and enjoy French culture to the max.

Why Switch to Underfloor Heating?

Make the switch today I did and I will never go back! Continue reading for further information on why you should too.

There are many reasons why you should switch to underfloor heating, but here are a few reasons that might also appeal to you. The underfloor heating heats up your entire room from the ground up rather than gradually spreading from certain places like wall radiators. When you switch the wall radiators are removed and all the heating is hidden underneath and out of the way. This will free up more space for you to play with. As well as having warm room you will also have warm floors too. By making the switch you can also save around 15 – 30% on heating bills.

Make the most of your heating today!

Fresh Air

Breathing fresh clean air is vital for our well being. Having poor duct work and even dirty dirty ducts will have a negative effect on the quality of the air we breathe.

So you should get your ducts clean out. De-duct are a fully qualified duct work cleaning specialist who offer a quality service at a good value. It is important that you employ a professional duct cleaning company to ensure a high quality job is done.

De-duct can also clear the air we breathe from medical rooms to nursing homes and offices.

Going Away This Summer?

If you’re heading out on a holiday this summer then there’s plenty of destinations you may have to choose from, and finding that warm weather may not be so difficult with some cities in Europe reaching around 40 degrees celsius so it’s definitely time to top up your tan!

But learning a language can be fun through a variety of language lessons. There are plenty of solutions out there that help people learn a new language, and it can be fun as well as helping you on your way to speaking a second tongue.

language lessons

Save Money on Your Heating Bill

We’re always looking to cut down our annual costs and reduce our monthly outgoings, firstly to relieve stress and secondly give us more financial freedom to buy the things we want and visit the places we’ve always wanted to visit. But reducing these bills can prove more difficult than you thought, but I have recently made a change in my home that over the last year has saved me hundreds of pounds.

Having recently struggled with my boiler until it finally packed in and gave up on me at the end of last year, so instead of paying the ridiculous price I was quoted to get it replaced I decided to invest in underfloor heating as I had heard from a good friend of mine that it was working extremely well in his home, and providing a fantastic heat source.

underfloor heating

 

The best part of it is where I have tiled flooring in my home, the underfloor system keeps this surface nice and warm, which makes it considerably more comfortable to walk on. The maintenance side of underfloor is great too, with it being considerably cheaper to maintain and run because it’s only pipework, as appose to an active boiler.

Mothers Day Jewellery

The rush for mother’s day presents is on with the big day hitting us this Sunday, and its important to put a big smile on your mum’s face this year with a really fantastic present that is going to live long in the memory, instead of the usual bunch of flowers from down the road that lasts a week, maybe two at best.

But you’re thinking jewellery is expensive and difficult to find the right piece for you, but it’s really not – you’ve just got to look in the right place for it! There’s a whole host of jewellery shops across the West Midlands such as Hamlington’s jewellers who have shops located in area’s such as Coventry, Leamington Spa and more! So there’s definitely going to be something that takes your fancy when you look around at some of the fantastic pieces on offer this year.

jewellery shops

 

A lot of us in the Midlands immediately think the infamous Birmingham Jewellery Quarter is the best place to start the search for the best jewellery shops around, which is probably true – but don’t limit yourself just to here there are plenty of other shops around the Midlands such as Hamlington’s fine jewellery.

Dealing With Rodents in Your Home

When you have a pest problem it can cause some quite serious issues within your house including structural damage, infection and just being a general nuisance in your home. Dealing with these intruders on your own can be problematic depending on what they are, as there are so many different types of pest and rodent that this covers.

This is why we recommend getting a professional company such as e-pest control who offer pest control Birmingham in to help deal with any problems you may be having. When you try to tackle a pest problem on your own, you may only temporarily deal with it for a short period of time, or in some cases make things worse so it’s important to let professional people do their job and help you remove the issue.

pest control

 

Ensuring that the pest problem doesn’t return is the most crucial element of pest control, a lot of companies offer a service that removes the problem for the time being, but installing measures to make sure it doesn’t return is even more crucial.

A friend of mine was recently looking for a pest control company in Tamworth after having a huge problem with mice coming into their home through the garage, and this was persistent over a period of time. They got a fantastic service from e-pest control who swiftly and effectively removed the problem and it has not since returned.
