The Best Bath Fixtures

The light fixtures that go into a new or renovated bathroom should be given as much thought, or nearly as much thought, as anything else in the room. They can be the difference between a bathroom that's fairly quotidian to one that is memorable.

For a contemporary look that adds real distinction to the smallest powder room or a bathroom so big and luxurious it serves as a home spa, a homeowner might wish to choose the latest wall sconces, ceiling fixtures or simple but elegant bath bars. These can be installed just above the medicine chest mirror or the vanity. Some are even made to be installed in a luxurious outdoor bath.

The wall sconces can come with one two, three or even more lights. Some come with can-shaped shades that are made out of chrome, bronze or brushed nickel with beautiful perforations. Others come with milk glass shades with chrome accents.

The shades of multi-light wall sconces can be made of bright, white linen or other fabric as well as white frosted glass and alabaster dust. The shades can also be made from dark fabric for a somewhat sexier look. Fixtures can also come with delightful accents such as chrome chain links or rows of sparkling crystal jewels made even more brilliant by the xenon lights behind them.

Welcome To Our Home



     Welcome to the place where I draw inspiration to write and live life to the fullest. It is at the neck of the woods somewhere in Asia. To date there isn't any mode of transportation that could reach our gate. One has to park by the main road and walk half a kilometer to our door. It isn't a boring walk though because I am always enchanted by the rolling clouds, the green branches and the chirping birds along the way. On rainy days we endure the muddy trail yet I will never trade the peace and quite at our home sweet home. We now have full internet access through broadband and cable channels so we get to communicate with the rest of the world 24/7 despite living quite far from the main road. With family and  friends like you who make me appreciate each day just how blessed and how lucky I am to be simply alive how can I ever be lonely here?

What to do When You Can't Let Go of Your Relationship

Relationships are hard work. We are so emotionally invested in them that the fear of losing them often creates tension. According to some love gurus, it’s how you deal with these tensions and fears that will make or break a relationship.

When you start worrying about your relationship, it is so easy to let your concerns take hold of your entire life. You are distracted at work and getting into trouble with the boss. You’re thinking about him in the car instead of realising the traffic lights have turned green. You are reading the same paragraph over and over again, because you are too distracted to digest it.

When other areas of your life start becoming affected by worry about a relationship, it may be time to seek some advice. Usually, when we are that concerned about something, a major event is just around the corner. We tend to create a big row to release that tension. Unfortunately, it takes two to argue, and your other half probably doesn’t have a clue why you’re picking a fight.

If you can step back from it, try talking to someone else or finding advice from someone outside of your relationship. Friends will always be on your side, and can fall into the trap of telling you what they think you want, or need, to hear. For impartial advice, try a stranger!

There have never been more self-help guides out there. Books, blogs, websites and articles about relationships and how to keep them are everywhere. The truth is there wouldn’t be so many of them if we didn’t feel we needed them. Some have proven themselves and become bestsellers. Of course, everyone is different so shop around or try a few to find the one that works best for you. You can find out online what other people think about some of the better-known titles by reading reviews like this review of Matt Huston's Get Him Back Forever.
