6 Tips to Save on Your Next Great Outdoor Adventure

Everyone should aim to take at least one great adventure per year. A change of scenery reawakens the mind, boosts happiness, and gives a purpose to hard work. The great outdoor adventure also creates a dialogue between nature and our inner selves. This helps grow the soul, body, and spirit. Now all you need to do is save for this serene outdoor trip.

Pick an Activity

You may define an outdoor adventure as sleeping on the beach of a tropical island. Someone else may define it as a weekend fishing trip. The term ‘outdoor adventure’ means different things to different people, which gives you a broad range of activity choices.

Narrow your choices by picking the adventure that matches your personality and budget. If you need help picking the adventure, close your eyes and visualize the activity that brings the most zen into your life. Make that one the focus of your trip.

Set a Budget and Start a Savings Account

Set a trip time limit. Decide between an immediate trip (one that occurs within a few days or weeks), or a long term trip (one that occurs months or a year in the future). Immediate trips probably won’t cost you a lot, so you do not need to save that much. However, future trips may require a bigger budget.

Breakdown all your expenses: write a list of all your potential trip costs, everything from transportation to food. Next, add at least two to three hundred dollars extra to your estimation for emergency expenses.

Open a new savings account, and set an automatic deduction amount that helps you reach your goal before the trip.

Make Extra Money

Sell clothing that you no longer wear to make money.  If you have any sort of skills creating unique jewelry, sewing, or building things, sell your own products and designs on Etsy and eBay.

Think of every skill that you can monetize. For example, someone who knows all the film editing tricks can advertise their services on a freelancing website or through a classified ad.

There are also unique ways to make money, such as selling your voice for voice-over work, and being paid to stand in line for someone else to buy concert tickets.

Find Small Ways to Save

Stop buying name brand groceries. Go out less. Utilize your library card instead of buying new books and magazines. Think of small expenses that you can cutout of your daily routine.

Save on your trip supplies with coupons. For example, if you plan to go on a sea adventure, use West Marine coupons to save on your sailing or fishing gear. Cutback on the little trip expenses, but invest in the big ones. Do not skimp on important trip purchases, such as a durable pair of hiking boots or a tent. Paying extra for a nice pair of hiking boots will create less hassle and save you more in the long term.

Ride An Alternative Transportation

Evaluate if you really need to take a car or flight to your outdoor adventure. A hiking or camping location may be within a biking range. If so, leave the car behind and bike to that area.

A train ride to a nearby city may end up saving you a lot more than booking a flight.

Choose Free Activities

Choose an outdoor activity that costs you nothing, such as a simple day on the beach or taking a mountain trail. These activities may not be the most exciting trips, but could still create a zen experience

Who Doesn’t Love Korean Drama?

Who doesn’t love korean drama? I have youtube channel that shares korean drama. I was surprised to know that many are hooked in kdrama all over the world based on the visitors checking on my posts. I forgot when was the first time and what was the first Kdrama I watched. If my memory is right, it was Autumn in my Heart. I cried a lot on this one. Sadly, Song Hye Kyo died in the said drama but overall I liked the story. From then on, I started to watch Kdrama so its been a decade.  

 Before in order to watch Kdrama, I had to rent a DVD but this time it is easy to watch korean drama. You can even watch the latest kdrama airing in Korea. I have favorite site that I watch korean drama and the nice thing about this site, i can download it first and watch later during my free time.

Anyway, why I suddenly talk about korean? I watched Its Showtime and heard Anne Curtis mentioned Gong Yoo. If you doesn’t know him, he was the lead actor in the movie “Train to Busan” and also he was from the kdrama “Goblin” last aired January 2017. So, Anne is watching korean drama as well. Even celebrity like her in love with korean drama. Anne Curtis is watching Goblin which I just finished few days ago.  Oh by the way, Vice Ganda was also a fan of korean drama. He is watching Love in the Moonlight,  this one is currently airing on abscbn. I watched Vice Ganda’s celebration of his birthday in GGV and Jin Young one of the casts of Love in the Moonlight greeted Vice Ganda. Wow!   

I have to admit that I’m enjoying korean drama than our own series. Sorry to say that but I really love their stories whether it is comedy, drama, fictional or whatever, hahah!. And also the charm and looks of the actors and actresses. I also like the scenery and their foods. I really like them so I hope one day I will have a chance to visit Korea. Saranghae :>

Why So Many People Rely On Great Psychic Readings

There is absolutely no valid argument against the proposition that modern life is tough. No matter how educated, how sensitive, how alert, or how connected a person is, aspects of modern living elude the best and brightest. Someone can have well-laid plans that would put a Renaissance era explorer to shame, and still feel as though they are ill-prepared for the challenges of life.

Most of the concerns people struggle with have to do with intensely personal conundrums, not just the how to’s of everyday living. In the modern, fast-paced world, it seems as if successful people have an inroad to esoteric information that is not necessarily the privy of the masses. This is the primary reason many people learn to love psychic readings. This brand of essential mind, body, and soul help is exactly what is needed to counter the onslaught of modern living stress and struggle.

Everyday people can receive great life advice through the insights of experienced and approachable psychics. Phone psychics are, not surprisingly, the richest source of valuable life information. Individuals with vetted and true psychic abilities choose to communicate via phone connections because it creates an intimate and free atmosphere where valuable information and knowledge can be exchanged.

Without question, the most frequent searches using psychic abilities are centered on relationships. Every aspect of modern life revolves around a person’s interactions with others. These relationships encompass professional duties, friend interactions, and the ever-present need to find lasting romantic bonds. True psychic power and insight is easily communicated over the phone, and is a solid source for resolving any concern.

For many people, the prospect of asking a sensitive phone psychic about very personal problems is a big leap into realms of insecurity. The best way to understand the service that phone psychics provide is through personal need. A psychic is someone who is gifted with the ability to connect with an individual on a level that is foreign to everyday interpersonal relationships. A psychic connects with an individual without judgement, and without pretense.

Individuals are constantly looking for truth that permeates the problems in life. Psychics have the talent and experience to weigh these concerns against information that is provided from sources far beyond the scope of everyday modern thinking. With the simple use of a telephone connection, anyone can enlist the help of a person whose understanding of life is beyond the norm.

The love of using phone psychics to answer questions about love, romance, careers, and family life only comes from positive connections. Most people who resolve to gain insight from psychics over the phone have immensely edifying experiences and gain valuable insights that cannot come from any other source. Phone psychics are a great way to help boost an overall proactive understanding of life itself.

Thankful for the opportunity to earn

I’m glad this blog is receiving paid tasks from time to time. I feel blessed because i don’t regularly updating all my blogs but still getting tasks. It is not huge but already a big help and every single cents coming to me is a blessing. There is a site that I’ve working for years already. This site is giving me tasks from time to time. Recently, they did a little changes in the site especially in giving payment. Before they used to pay every first week of the month but now i have to reach a certain amount to get my payment. The good thing is there are also ways to get your payment right away but you need to pay a little amount. I think this fee is a monthly payment. I didn’t reach the payout last month so i wasn’t able to get the money. I don’t think I could get the payment this month also because my total earnings is still short. I hope next month i will receive more tasks so i can reach the payout already and receive payment as well. Oh well, I’m glad i don’t need the money now. I will just think I am saving money and for sure i will get my earnings not too long.

Fortunately, there are available solutions from a Park Slope cosmetic dentist. You have a chance to correct what you do not like in a convenient and affordable setting.

Dental work that can improve your teeth, gums or bite has many benefits. The focus is on the positioning of your teeth as well as size and color. Some procedures offer a complete smile makeover; others can correct minor problems. Either way, getting this done can make a significant difference in your life.

Social Benefits Cosmetic Dental Work

Getting the pearly whites that you have wanted is an immediate confidence booster. It is possible that your social life will blossom because you will feel better about your appearance. Not only does a well aligned white smile attract positivity, but it can also brighten someone’s day. You will feel great about your appearance because an area of insecurity has been uplifted.

With a better smile, people will change their perception of who you are and how they choose to behave with you. Behavioral studies found in the American Journal of Social Psychology back this up. People who are physical attractive and have bright smiles have an advantage when they are in social settings and during interviews.

Health Benefits Cosmetic Dental Work

Many people are not aware of the effect poor dental hygiene can have on a person’s physical health. When you hear the word “cosmetic,” the first thought is connected to appearance and how someone looks. However, cosmetic dentistry does more that improve the aesthetics of your smile. It also helps you maintain healthy teeth and gums. Poor dental hygiene can lead to chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.

Once your teeth are reshaped, whitened and straightened, you will become motivated to increase your dental hygiene habits to avoid losing that bright smile. Additionally, you may rethink some of the previous food and drink choices that stained your teeth. A natural effect is improved health once you stop eating too much junk food or drinking sugary drinks.

There are tremendous benefits to having work done to repair your teeth. It typically takes a short time to get certain procedures and to recover. Speaking with your dentist can help you understand the available options that will lead to a healthy, bright smile.

How to Decorate your Fireplace

Fireplaces are considered to be a common feature that is found in most residential properties and is often used to create a warm setting in the winter season. Although the fireplace is a functional feature to have on the property, it can also be used to contribute to the aesthetics of the interior setting. To decorate your fireplace and allow it to work as the focal point of the room, there are a few styles to embrace.

Paint the Bricks

If you want to create a modern setting that looks contemporary, you can paint the bricks of your fireplace to make it look sleek. Use a coat of black or white paint, which update the feature and allow it to look new again.

Decorate your fireplace

Many fireplaces aren’t built with a mantel, making it important to install the feature to have a place to store framed photos or artwork. Consider installing a mantel that is constructed out of reclaimed wood for a rustic touch that will add a rich element to the space. Dress up the mantel by using dried flowers in a vase, antique bottles, and candles. You can also add a large mirror or floral wreath.

Use Vintage Fireplace Tools

The fireplace tools that are used should contribute to the decor of the fireplace. Use antique fireplace tools that are vintage and are made of quality materials to show off a beautiful product. You can add extra charm to the fireplace with the tools and also use the items when you’re having a fire.

Add Candles

More people are decorating the inside of the fireplace with different types of candles. Gather a dozen different sizes of candles that will add more dimension to the fireplace and will look beautiful when each candle is lit. You can also add stacks of wood inside of the fireplace or fill it with flowers during the spring season.

Use Baskets

Baskets that are placed in front of the fireplace add a cozy touch that will make the house feel like a home. Use the baskets to hold wood logs, pillows, and blankets for the living room.

When you want to dress up your fireplace and allow it to look updated, there are several elements to incorporate to make it appear stylish. By getting creative, you’ll feel proud to show off the space and use it for more than just making fires.

ABS-CBN Upcoming Korean Drama 2017

ABS-CBN sets to air 7 Korea’s biggest hit series. As a big fan of Kdrama I’m happy hearing the news. Finally ABS-CBN is back airing Kdrama. For this year they announced to air this 7 kdrama series  including “Love in the Moonlight,” “Legend of the Blue Sea,” “Hwarang,” “Goblin,” “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo,” “W” and “Doctors.”

I believed the first to be aired will be Love in the Moonlight replacing Pinoy Big Brother (PBB). Love in the Moonlight stars Park Bo-gum and Kim Joo-yung is a romantic comedy about a young prince who falls in love with a woman disguised as a eunuch.

Lee Min-ho will be back on Philippine television along with Jun Ji-hyun in Legend of the Blue Sea, a love story between a man and a mermaid.

“Train to Busan” star Gong Yoo will also make his television comeback as an immortal protector of souls in the fantasy series Goblin.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo is about the coming-of-age series about a group of college athletes. Next  is Hwarang about a group of young, handsome men devoted to defending the king.

Fall in love with W (two worlds) starring Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo. “W” tells the story of a woman pulled inside the parallel world of a webtoon created by his father. Finally Doctors  starring Park Shin-hye and Kim Rae-won. It is about medical drama which features the love story between a rebel turned neurosurgeon and her mentor.

I already watched Love in the Moonlight, Legend of the Blue Sea, W and currently watching Doctors. I will watch the other three especially Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo. Although I prefer watching in Korean language, I will definitely see them also in tagalized version.

Shopping for Sunglasses Online

Are your current sunglasses falling apart? If this is the case, you better get some new ones before summer arrives. Where should you do your shopping for sunglasses? There are certainly many different websites you can choose from that sell sunglasses. Doing your shopping online can save you a lot of time. However, you should never make the mistake of thinking that all sites that sell sunglasses are basically the same. This is simply not the case. Here are a few tricks that will help you to find the best sunglasses at the lowest prices when you are shopping online.

1. Does the site sell sunglasses that are made by all of the most popular brands?

You should never be limited regarding the sunglasses that you can buy. In other words, do not shop at sites that only have a paltry selection in their inventory. Make sure that the sites you do business with expose you to the widest variety of manufacturers. You will find that some companies have exclusive contracts with various online retailers. This means that those sites will not carry the competitors of the brands they have contracts with. Not all retailers operate like this. Keep looking until you discover a site that allows you to do all of your shopping for sunglasses in one place.

2. Look for sites that have frequent sales on the sunglasses they sell.

It is smart to look for deals when you shop online. People who are experienced when it comes to deal hunting regularly save a lot of money. You should never pay more than you need to for sunglasses. It would be a shame if you bought a pair of sunglasses and the exact same type was on sale for less on a different site. The time you spend looking for deals will be worth it if you are able to find a great pair of sunglasses for a cheap price. You might even find a site that has deals on bulk order sunglasses.

3. Compare the shipping rates of all the sites you are thinking about doing business with.

Many online retailers take advantage of their customers by overcharging them for shipping on the items they buy. Do not allow yourself to be one of these people. Make sure that you compare how much the various sites are charging for shipping. Choose the one that will ship your sunglasses the cheapest.

Building a New Garage

A garage provides protection for your car from outdoor elements, as well as a convenient place to store tools, gardening equipment and a variety of household items. If you don’t have an existing garage, it may be time to consider one. Building a new garage for your home will provide many benefits that make your lifestyle easier and more efficient.

Before you decide to build a new garage, you should think about the advantages and disadvantages of an attached garage versus a detached garage. Do you want a secure space to park your car every night? Do you want a separate space for certain activities? Do you need extra storage? Both types of garages offer advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your property size, garage size, intended use of the space, and your budget, it’s important to determine which type of garage works best for your needs.

* Attached Garage – Building an attached garage is equivalent to building a large home addition without separate interior walls for different rooms. You’ll be adding a large space to your home’s structure, but your contractor can use existing exterior walls as part of the new structure. This can save you money on construction costs.

* Detached Garage – Building a detached garage is equivalent to building a small house. You will need to dig out the ground and pour a foundation for the structure. Typically, it’s a bigger project than building an attached garage, so you may incur more upfront construction costs. However, a detached garage may give your more design options for the space.

With both types of garages, your construction costs will depend on the size of the garage, building materials, and interior finishes and amenities you choose. For example, building a stone or brick garage will cost you more than building a wooden garage. If you add heating and cooling, insulation, and windows, your building costs will be more, but necessary if you plan to spend time working in the garage. There are a lot of variables that will impact the cost of building a new garage, but you can expect to spend $25,000 to $35,000 on an average size garage.

A new garage is a great home feature, but it’s a big project that requires the skills of a licensed, professional contractor. Check contractor leads in your area to find a contractor with knowledge and experience. Before you begin, consider your needs, budget, and style of your house. A garage is a large structure that will make a big impact on your home’s appearance and curb appeal. Talk to your contractor about advantages and disadvantages of both types of garages, building costs, material choices, and design options that will enhance your home and your lifestyle.
