Fitness Types for Wearing Your Waist Trainer 

When you buy waist trainers designed for use while exercising, you might be wondering which exercises, sports, and fitness types are going to be suitable. After all, since they can restrict your movement, not all activities are going to be okay.

Read on to learn about the best exercise types to do while wearing your new, high-quality waist trainer.

Strength Training

A huge part of getting fit and losing weight is strength and resistance training. This form of exercise allows you to strengthen your muscles while burning fat at the same time. Typically, this type of activity is not one that makes you sweat a lot. However, if you wear a waist trainer designed for fitness use, then that problem is solved.

Thanks to the combination of latex, cotton, and spandex, you can turn a moderate workout into a high-intensity one that may even produce better results.

You can use your own bodyweight as a form of resistance, or you can rely on weights. If you’re not sure what type of strength training is right for you, talk to a trained fitness instructor.

Nets and Their Many Uses

Posted on

If you were to ask 100 people to name a type of net, given that recently we seem to be living much of our lives online, we are sure a large percentage would say the internet! Joking aside, it is likely that even if they were told we meant the type of nets you can get from specialist netting suppliers like www.ausnetindustries.com, many would struggle to go beyond ‘fishing’ and we dare say some might even say ‘curtains’.

The fact is, if you were to sit down and list every type of net you could think of you would likely end up with quite a long list, and that list would extend further if you were to include all the ways in which a net can be used. This is due to the fact that whilst a net might have been produced for a specific use, the versatility that is inherent in a net means it could be used for other reasons.

We are sure that netting which was designed for use as a pet enclosure has been used to secure the items in the back of a pickup, and also many a discarded fishing net, has been commandeered and strung up in a garden for children to climb and play on. Not that there is anything wrong with either of these changes in use nor indeed using any net for a different purpose than its original one, provided that it is done safely.

Choosing The Right Mechanic For Your Next Vehicle Service

Posted on
Right Mechanic

If you own a luxury vehicle, then you need to make sure that you’re getting it serviced by a highly skilled, qualified mechanic. Most mechanics claim to have the skills they need to perform things like a Mercedes Benz service, but the simple truth is that most of them don’t.

Using a mechanic without experience working with and servicing luxury cars can lead to a range of problems, including a poorly done job which can negatively impact your vehicle’s performance. It’s therefore very important to think carefully about the mechanic that you’re going to choose for your car’s next service. Consider the following:

Find A Mechanic That Specialises In Your Type Of Car

Different cars are very different. Most mechanics will claim to be able to work on any vehicle, and they probably will be able to. However, finding someone who’s familiar with the intricacies of vehicles like yours will help make sure that your next service is completed to the highest quality standards.

If you’ve got a luxury vehicle like a Mercedes or a BMW, you should look for a mechanic that specialises in luxury vehicles. Sure, you might have to pay a little bit more for their expertise, but it’ll be worth it – trust me.

How to Measure for Jewellery

Posted on
Jewellery

A local jeweller such as Diamonds and Pearls know a lot about jewellery, including styles, metals, stones, and recommended retail pricing. What they don’t know, however, is your significant other’s ring size, or how the particular sizing of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings works with your body shape and size.

Even if you plan on seeing jewellers in secret, so your partner doesn’t know you’re surprising them or you are planning wedding gift, you need to be aware of sizing. If you don’t, you may find it more challenging to pick something out they’ll like or will fit them perfectly.

Of course, when you do visit a jeweller’s store and pick out something, you can return it if it doesn’t fit or you want to resize it. However, if you can get it right the first time, you can avoid that hassle, and you or your loved one can wear that piece forever. Measuring for jewellery is easier than you think.

Necklaces

Even if you’re shopping for yourself, you may find it challenging to buy a necklace that works on your body shape. Often, it can also seem like more hassle than it’s worth to try on every single necklace you like. So, rather than pay attention to measurements, many people buy a necklace from their local jewellers then put up with the fact it doesn’t suit them.

A 400-410mm necklace is going to sit more like a choker chain with minimal give, whereas something between 430mm to 490mm will sit on the lines of your collarbone. If you prefer something a little longer, a necklace over 550mm will hang around the neckline, while over 600mm will be below it. Specific necklace styles suit different clothing and body shapes, so keep this in mind. Anything below 420mm can limit how many outings the necklace will get with apparel.

8 Tips to Enjoy Outdoor Living

Posted on
Outdoor-Living

Most of Australia is lucky in that the warm, temperate climate makes outdoor living very pleasant and to be enjoyed for nine months of the year or more, depending on where you live. Since it is something that most people enjoy whether for entertaining or just relaxing after the evening meal, here are some tips to help you enjoy it more.

  1. If you and your family enjoy dining outdoors, create a space that does not cause a lot of work taking chairs, tables and lighting outside – not to mention food – then bringing it all back in after the meal is over. For instance, an outdoor kitchen on the deck will contain everything you need for a meal and you can even cook outdoors instead of being stuck inside tending to the meal while everyone else enjoys themselves in the cool of the evening.
  1. If the barbeque area is down the backyard, make it more usable and pleasant by adding a shade-cloth, a wind-break if wind is a problem in your area, and pavers or another flooring option to keep your feet dry and clean. That way mud and wet grass won’t be tracked back inside at the end of the meal.

Finding a Place to Really Relax

outdoor relaxation area

If you have ever been on a luxury yacht, especially one like Amara, designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, you will have seen just how many relaxation and entertainment areas there are.  All are a little different and many areas are designed especially for other cultures where chairs and lounges are not so important, but piles of cushions on the floor or on a large, raised, padded platform provide comfort to anyone wanting to use them.

While many furnishing trends travel from home to ship, sometimes that is reversed, with up-market homes following trends that are seen in luxury yachts, especially the really big ones where opulence is key. Almost any home can be improved with more relaxation areas that offer the ultimate in comfort, whatever that may be to the owners. If you are feeling stressed out and tired, it could be that there is no truly welcoming and comfortable space in your home that calls you in to relax.
