Glass decor for your house!

When thinking about decoration for your house, it is extremely important on this journey to not just find your style of decoration, but also to think about choosing items that will last over time. One of the decoration items I find the most durable (of course, you need to take care of not breaking it), are glass items. Glass usually will not discolor or fade over time, and maintenance is quite simple. Just use glass cleaner products, that are very cheap, and voilà! Brand new again!

On my region there are several factories specialized on glass art, but they are more focused on living room decoration items, such as vases, paper weights and glass baskets. See some examples of how beautiful they are below.

But, if you are looking for glass items that can be installed at your home, such as door knobs, sinks and options similar to this one, the best way is to order on the internet. You will find not just a variety of items, but they will be also cheaper as well. During my reference searches, I’ve found, for instance some beautiful blue lotus glass sinks, that will combine very well on a lady’s restroom or in a country house. If you are looking for something less exotic, and simpler, this website offers good options as well.

So, what is your style of decoration? Are you minimalist or do you like to innovate, using pieces of decoration in your house that reflects your personal style? Tell me on the comments!

Royalty at your house!

There’s been exactly one month that we’ve had one of the most important events of the English Royalty, the Royal Wedding! We’ve had the opportunity to see live worldwide the transmission of that beautiful ceremony, pay attention on the outfits and, of course, appreciate the amazing decoration of the royal venues.

I’ve had some opportunities in my life to visit some of the royal venues. The last were the Buckingham palace and the Windsor Castle (including St. George Chapel, when Meghan and Harry have gotten married), at the middle of last year.

In all of them, we can repair the same pattern on the decoration, with great furniture, astonishing mattresses and, of course, the curtains. For me, what brings the best sense of royalty in a room to me are the wallpapers and the curtains style. They use it not just on the windows, but also around the bed or to divide rooms, acting as a panel. This type of decoration also resembles me of the great princess movies of Disney, that are such an inspiration!

This is a great example of what I’m telling of one of the living rooms available at the Buckingham Palace

The great thing about the curtains is that we can replicate a bit of this royal feeling in our house! I’ve found some stores that sells several models of very elegant curtains, for a reasonable price. So, royalty can be closer than we think from our lives!

So, what would you think about that? Do you believe it can work in a 21st century home, or would you prefer to use it to throw a thematic party, for instance? Tell me here on the comments!

Whether it’s winter or not, pay attention on eczema symptoms!

We all love to feel the soft and smooth skin of babies, since it hasn’t suffered yet with life! But, even when they’re toddlers, they need to have their skin taken care of, just like we do with us as adults. It is very common, mainly during winter times when we use a water that’s too hot for the shower and lots of clothing layers that babies can develop an condition named Eczema. This is also known as atopic dermatitis, and it is when the baby starts presenting a raw, dry, red and itchy skin usually on the hands, knees and face. Other symptoms are little bubbles that surfaces on the skin, and if it stays for too long, the skin becomes so harsh that an major treatment might be required. It is more common that we think, and one in five babies are likely to present this condition at some point of life.

This is an example of a degree of eczema on a baby’s skin … See that this one looks like just small bubbles instead of only skin redness, and the best way to treat it is by using creams with the purpose of healing it without steroids

To treat that, the best suggestion is to choose for revitol eczema cream to buy, since it doesn’t have steroids on the formula, what could be harmful for the baby’s health. Besides that, this is a product that is great to include on the baby shower list, or give to mommies when visiting the babies at home. I don’t have and don’t plan to have any kids now or on the medium term future, but always try to give gifts that are useful and will ease mom’s lives, mainly when they’re with their first ones. Since I usually go to baby showers at least once every six months, it is important to get this education as well!

Other options to include on the kit for a first baby shower, along with teddy bears and clothes, are first aid/hygiene kids, where you can include your eczema cream in there. Those are usually composed of wet wipes, cotton, gas relief drops, gripe water, baby soap, shampoo, cleaning lotions, pomades, oils, eczema cream/pomade and ointment treatment creams. On this kit, it is also interesting to include gloves to the baby, to prevent them from scratching the skin if they present any condition on the skin that might be aggravated by touching that too often.

You can also think about gifts that are not just for the baby, but also for the mom, such as relaxing products such as body lotion, scented oils, exfoliating creams, face masks and food treatment products. Other category of gifts that are very nice for moms are books and magazines non-baby related, so they can relax during the day from the stressing routine of taking care of a newborn.
