Fun Bridal Party Activities In Your Pyjamas

Fun Bridal Party Activities In Your Pyjamas

There can be more to wedding planning than simply booking caterers and venues and learning vows. It can also be an opportunity to spend time with the family members and friends in your bridal party and do fun activities while wearing personalised pyjamas.

If you’re trying to create the perfect pre-wedding experience, here are a few fun bridal activities to do in your pyjamas.

Movie Night

Any bride-to-be looking for a low-key bridal activity to do in the lead-up to their big day can’t go wrong with a movie night. After gifting all members of your bridal party with a set of personalised pyjamas, you can line up a few movies in your watchlist, buy some treats like popcorn and lollies, and settle in for the evening.

You may even like to make things interesting by purchasing a few bottles of wine. However, having an alcohol-free night may also not be a bad idea if your wedding is just around the corner.

Beauty Treatments

Having bad skin on your wedding day is most bride-to-be’s worst nightmare. While wedding photographers can smooth out your skin on request, it doesn’t hurt to do all you can in the lead-up to the big day to make your skin as healthy as possible.

Therefore, if you’re short of ideas for a low-key bridal party at home, consider trying a few different beauty treatments. You and your best friends can wear face masks, try different creams, and relax with a grazing platter and a glass of wine.

You may even like to have your hair done or facials, book a home-visit masseuse, paint each other’s nails, or schedule a luxurious spa treatment at The Beauty Gallery. There are so many fun, beauty-related things you can do while relaxing at home in your pajamas.

7 Ways to Live A Healthy Lifestyle On A Limited Budget

It is often stated that living a healthy lifestyle is the privilege of only those with lots of money, but we are here to tell you that is not true. In fact, many things relating to finances where financial planners advise on investments, savings, and retirement planning, are just as accessible to those on low to medium incomes as they are to those with high incomes.

Admittedly, many of the specifics, such as how much someone can invest will vary depending on income, but the fact remains financial planning is for everyone. As such, whether you earn $1,000 or $10,000 per month, do not hesitate to seek the advice of your local financial planner.

The same goes for living a healthy lifestyle we mentioned at the start as no rule states you must be rich to be healthy nor to lead a lifestyle that promotes your health. Even if your finances are limited or you do not have a huge budget for spending on a healthy lifestyle, these should not deter you, especially as we have seven ways below that a healthy lifestyle can be achieved on a low budget.

Buy Cheaper Workout Gear: No fitness rulebook demands all exercise must be done whilst wearing Nike’s latest $400 tracksuit and $500 sports shoes. You will get no fitter wearing them than you would with an old t-shirt and shorts with trainers that have been around the block a few times.

7 Questions You Must Ask Before Choosing A Dog Day Care Centre

One of the best ways to assess any product or service is to ask those selling or providing them questions, and that applies equally when the service you are considering is dog day care. As a dog owner who cares deeply for their dog, no doubt you will be keen to find a dog day care that is friendly, has your dog’s best interests at heart, and can provide them with plenty of opportunities to socialise with other dogs, have fun, and get lots of exercise.

There are not an insignificant number of boxes that any potential dog day care centre has to tick before you decide your dog is going to attend, and rightly so. Choosing dog day care should not be done on a whim and without proper research. So, to help you narrow down any options for dog day care centres you have, and to discover more about any you may pinpoint as the one you will choose, here are seven key questions which you should ask each of them.

What training/qualifications do the staff have?

You want to be assured that people caring for your dog each day know what they are doing so this is why you want to know what qualifications and experience staff have. Most dog day care centres are happy to tell you,  and indeed many openly advertise this information as it is a strong selling point.

10 Basics Of Grooming Your Dog

10 Basics Of Grooming Your Dog

There are several reasons why you might groom your dog yourself rather than using a professional dog grooming service. According to professional dog associations, like the National Cavoodle Association of Australia, it could be that your budget does not currently stretch to professional dog grooming fees. It could also be you have taken your dog to a grooming parlour before, and your dog went frantic. It could also be that by practising, you have learned some dog grooming skills, and you enjoy grooming your dog.

Whatever the reason why you choose to groom your dog yourself, it is also important that you have a full understanding of the dog grooming basics, so we have outlined ten of those core basics below.

#1 – Preparation

Unless you want your grooming session to be shambolic, you should prepare well. For example, schedule it for when there will not be many interruptions, take your dog for a walk beforehand to burn off their energy, and ensure you have everything you need at hand.

#2 – Correct Tools And Supplies

The second core principle of dog grooming at home is having all the correct tools and equipment. These will include combs, scissors, shampoo, towels, and even some treats to encourage your dog to sit still whilst you are grooming them.

#3 – Brushing Their Coat

In truth, brushing your dog’s coat should not be something that only happens on the occasions you are grooming them. To remain healthy, a dog’s coat should be brushed every day, especially if they are a long-haired dog. Regular brushing will help detangle their fur, prevent matting, and keep their coat shiny.

5 Factors You Must Consider Before Deciding To Clean Your Carpets

When someone decides it is time for carpet cleaning to take place in their home, they rush into it without much, if any, thought whatsoever. With carpet cleaning, as with many jobs in a house, just running into it will not produce the best results.

Carpet cleaning might not seem like the most complicated work you might do around your home. However, there are enough variables that impact it that warrant some thought. Simply ‘going for it’ with some carpet detergent and a scrubbing brush not only makes the work more difficult, but worse, it can lead to your carpets being ruined and needing replacing.

So, we ask you to pause before cleaning your carpets and take some time to ponder some of the factors that will influence how and when you clean your carpets. Here are five essential factors from carpet cleaning experts Brilliance Carpet Cleaning Perth that can help make your carpet cleaning more effective.

Factor #1 – What Is The Weather Forecast?

You might question why you have to check the weather forecast for outside when your carpets are inside. Well, as the weather will impact those who live in your home when they are outside, it will also influence how clean or not their shoes will be when they return home. Wet weather can mean wet, muddy shoes being walked across your carpets, so logic dictates saving carpet cleaning for a sunny and dry day.

7 Proven Tips That Will Help You Stop Smoking

We are going to assume you are reading this, either out of interest or more importantly, that you wish to give up smoking, so what you will not be reading here is a list of reasons why stopping smoking is highly beneficial for your health. We presume you already know that it is, plus all the negative consequences of smoking for one’s health.

So, we will instead outline 7 proven tips that thousands of smokers have used to help them stop smoking, and stop for good. We list them in no particular order as that would suggest one of them is more likely to work than the others. The problem with that is that each individual will react positively or negatively to specific stop smoking techniques. So, choose which appeals to you most, be it #1, or #7, or indeed all of them.

#1: Give Yourself An Extremely Powerful Reason To Stop

Nothing will keep you motivated more in weaker moments if stopping smoking is a means to an end. By that we mean you set yourself a powerful reason for stopping with examples being around to see your grandchildren grow up, using the money you save to send your children to college or to buy yourself a new car.

#2: Tell Everyone You are Stopping

Nobody likes to admit they are weak-willed or a failure, and whilst it might be a negative motivation, the important point is that they still work. So, tell as many people as you can that you are going to stop smoking, and in addition, ask them to encourage you if they ever see your resolve is weakening.

Top Tips For Choosing Your Bridesmaid Robes

You may have thought long and hard about the best gifts for your bridesmaids, only to settle on bridesmaid robes. After all, they are beautiful, practical, and affordable.

Since the bridesmaids are getting spoilt, its only fair to spoil the groomsmen too! Depending on what hobbies or interests they share, the possibilities are endless, from personalised beer stubby holders, matching ties, personalised cuff links or custom boots from Kader Boot Co.

However, before you jump into the purchasing process, take the time to think about the best ways to purchase your new robes. A little bit of research can go a long way. We’ve included some top tips for making sure the shopping process goes off without a hitch.

Research the Supplier

Even though you may have found the most beautiful robe on the internet, don’t rush into buying it right away. Take the time to find out more about the supplier so you can be sure about their reputation.

Look for online reviews from real customers. Real testimonials can give you insight into things like garment quality, shipping timeframes, value for money, and more.

It can also be worth finding out where they are based so you can enjoy peace of mind that you’re not waiting too long to receive them. For example, if you’re based in Australia, purchase bridesmaid robes online in Australia.

Check the Sizes

Even though robes are available in all different shapes and sizes, that doesn’t mean your preferred stockist will have the sizes you need. Narrow down your options based on whether they are able to cater to your sizing requirements. You can do this by clicking on your desired style and seeing the dropdown menu for sizes.

A Beginners Guide To Meditation

Whenever the subject of our health and well-being is raised, in most cases the subject being discussed relates to physical health, at least that was the case until recently. With the world being more attuned to the importance of mental health, especially in light of how people had to cope with all that they had to face due to the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone is more aware that the health of our mind is every bit as significant, as the health of our bodies.

There are many ways in which our mental health can be affected, both positively and negatively, and if we were to write fifty books on these subjects, we would still barely be scratching the surface. Instead, we are going to look at one subject, and it is one which you will be pleased to know, seeks to impart positive effects on your mental well-being.

The subject we are referring to is meditation, and it is one that, sadly, far too many people know very little about. For those that do know about mediation, and more importantly, practice it regularly, they will all tell you that meditation is a positive experience and one from which they benefit enormously.

What Is Meditation?

Let us first define what meditation is, at least from a general perspective given that meditation can be practised in many ways. The most basic definition is that meditation is a calming and quieting of the mind. An analogy is comparing a busy road junction at peak times with cars, buses, and trucks all noisily driving through, with what that same junction is like at 3 am with barely one car per hour driving through it.

Substitute all the traffic going through the junction with the thoughts that are going through your mind when it is active and busy. With meditation, your mind is quietened, with your thoughts reduced to a bare minimum as you become more mindful.
