Every year we all wonder what to get our loved ones for the Holidays. We think of their favorite hobbies, what they like to do for fun, their style of clothes etc but do you ever think about their fur babies? 

We all know someone who is an avid animal lover (or you might be one yourself as I am) so why not get them a gift that ties into their passion and love for their furry friends?

Naturally Healthy Pets offers just that! 

I recently received a Dog Bone Baking Pan & Oven Mitt Set which I love! Not only is it adorable and right up my alley, it's also extremely durable and adorable!



I think these are such a clever gift for any dog lover. The mitts are like little dogs but they have a non-slip grip to them which makes them extremely functional!

It's Time to Love Your Reflection in the Mirror Again!

Image
Have you started to dread looking in the mirror? Do you deliberately turn the other way when
walking past parked cars or store windows? Don’t worry. You’re not alone. At some point or another we all, male and female, start to feel a disconnect between the way we see ourselves in our heads and
what we see in the mirror. This tends to happen when we gain weight, have kids, are getting over an
illness, injury or surgical procedure or simply start to get a little older. Or in some cases we carry little
pet peeves about our appearances and our bodies throughout our lives. Yet, while it’s completely natural
for us to harbor certain hang ups about ourselves- if we’re not careful this can cross the line into
self loathing. And that can have a seriously damaging effect on our psyche.

It can make us turn down the opportunity to go out and see friends because we’re worried that others
will be judging us. It can cause us to miss out on important family events b…

If you're a keen gardener, you'll understand all the joy and health benefits - both mental and physical - that creating your own outdoor space can bring. From very small children to our elder citizens,
the simple act of tending to plants and creating something out of the soil can feel redemptive and very
special. Connecting us to the natural world, cleaning our air, giving us opportunities to learn and create
and supplying us with beautiful homegrown vegetables, fruits and flowers - there are so many great
reasons to enjoy. If you have a loved one with restricted mobility, you may want to give them all the
benefits stated above - but be struggling to think how. Luckily, when you design with inclusivity in mind, it
is possible to create a garden that is both accessible and beautiful. 

Pay Attention To Pathways

Accessible pathways are the first key to having a garden which is welcoming to everyone. You need to

How To Reduce The Stress Of Moving Homes

Image Credit Pixbay License CC0 Moving house is said to be up there with the most stressful things that can happen in your life. If you
have lived in your current home for a few years, everything that you own will probably have settled into
its own place. Packing up all of your possessions up into boxes and moving them to a new home can be
a lot of work. With many of the items that we own holding so much sentimentality, there can be a great
deal of worry attached to transporting them. Things can get damaged, or even lost. To add to all of this,
there are a lot of practicalities that go hand-in-hand with moving homes. Utilities need cancelling on one
end, then set up on the other. There may be decorating that needs doing on both houses, as well as
giving the home a deep clean. 

Dealing With The Practicalities Before you move out of your current home, you will need to get in touch with so many people to let them
know that you are moving. Make a list of all of the businesses and organizatio…

Perfectly Decorating That Greenhouse You Just Had Built

Image
A greenhouse is a great home addition for any garden enthusiast. If you like to get out there, gloves and
apron on, and down on your hands and knees, you can be sure a greenhouse will be a worthy
investment! After all, if you can sow and reap the whole year round, you’ll be chowing down on the
produce of your home grown vegetable patch as often as you like. 

If you’ve just had some remodeling work done on your house, and part of that included having a
greenhouse erected in the garden, it’s time to decorate it. And to make sure you do so right and proper,
here are some pointers of inspiration to get you started.

Hang a Chair (and plenty of plants too!)

If you want to get some extra use out of your greenhouse, be sure to use it as a semi living space as
well. Even if you have little to no extra room in there, you can always hang up a chair or two to make
sure you can sit and sip some tea from time to time, especially when there’s some nice weather shining
through…

How Studying As An Adult Is Not What You May Expect

Image
As children, we learn when we are in school, and we just get on with the day given to us. Eventually, we l
eave and are happy to have our own freedom. But for many of us, we find ourselves either drawn to
learning later on in life or find it necessary for our career development. It can be a little bit of a shock to
the system when you take up studying again. This is because of many things, obviously, as our brains
age they don’t retain information as well, but what Other surprises might we find as we choose to study
later on in life?

Social In school, we tend to be around other children our own age, but when we go back to school as adults,
we find ourselves mixing with people of all ages and walks of life. Of course, everyone has a common
theme in as much as they have chosen the subject they are studying, and I’ve already graduated high
school before. This means we have a whole new demographic of people to mix with and make friends with. Socialising do…
