How to Keep Your New House Looking Fresh

If you’ve just moved into a new house, you’ll have the luxury of not having to do much work. The inside and outside of the house will be clean and fresh, so you won’t have to worry about spending money to get it up to standard. However, it won’t always be like that. Every house will need to be maintained. Whether it’s because of extreme weather conditions or the kids having a bad day, it’s likely you’ll need to do some repairs at some point. Here are some of the things you’ll need to remember to keep your house looking fresh.

Clean Your Gutters
It’s easy for your gutters to get clogged up with damp leaves, dirt and even bird’s nests. It’s important to clean your gutters every few months so water has a clear path to travel. If you have to climb a ladder to get it done, you may want to ask some to support you, so you’re as safe as possible. Don’t attempt to climb a ladder if you think you’ll be unsafe. It won’t cost much to hire a handy-man and the job doesn’t usually take long.

Take Care of Your Garage
Your garage isn’t like the rest of the house. It’s usually more susceptible to damp and rodents. Make sure you check your garage every few weeks for damp, mould and rats or mice. Many people have the habit of turning their garage into a storage room for things they no longer need, but that just gives rodents more hiding places. It’s also important to maintain your garage doors. The doors can take a beating in all weathers and paint can be stripped off easily.

Top 3 Most Enjoyable Exercise Machines That Actually Work!


If you're looking for an exercise machine that works wonders, but is actually enjoyable to do - then don't give up - they do really exist, you just need to look in the right place.
Here are three of the best workout machines that you won't want to get off of.

Stair Mill
If you want to achieve a bigger, more sculpted booty, then a stair mill is what you need. Sure, you can use the stairs in your home, but sometimes it's just not practical to do so, and it can be very dangerous too, unlike this machine that constantly flows, letting you walk up a never-ending flight of stairs, while safely offering you support on either side. There are also different settings and speeds that you can do, so it doesn't have to stay all on the same level if you get bored easily. You can set modes to the style that you prefer, such as landmarks, rolling hills, and interval training. This works by targeting your hips, calves, thighs, and butt, which is what all of us girls want to work on nowadays.

Vibration Machine
If you want a workout that engages your muscles while having fun, then a vibration platform machine may be the thing for you. As the name suggests, this machine vibrates which stimulates your muscles to either contract or relax. When you usually exercise, you contract a muscle one or two times a second, whereas when you use the vibrating machine, it causes you to contract up to fifty times a second! So not only does this give you a killer workout, but it could save you so much time too. A ten-minute session on one of these is the equivalent of an hour's workout. So if you're always on the go, want quicker results or just enjoy adding a bit more fun into your exercises, then get yourself one of these.

Feeling Great and Dressing Comfortably

Hmmm what I love most about having the ideal body weight is that I finally look good in medium sized clothes haha! I used to have such a hard time looking for clothes that fit me. The hubby was always with me supporting me in that frustration haha. These days I already enjoy SALE items haha! Gone are the days when I would be left chuckling in a corner depressed that all the cheap items are too small for my size yay! So those of you who are still struggling with being overweight there is HOPE. Check out my healthy living posts to be inspired.


Still Going Green

So I'm still on track with my healthy eating habit yay! I actually gained a bit of weight the past month since many concerned friends and family have been telling me "too thin" doesn't look good on me. I trusted their good suggestion and ate a larger serving of each meal. Now I'm back to square one and mastering this healthy living thingy haha! I recently attended a convention, medical one where a speaker reminded us to eat at least five kinds/ servings of veggies and fruits each day. That and proper exercise is what I am imposing to myself. So far, so good. Join me?
