Glider Rocking Chair Styles

A Brief History of Glider Rocking Chairs

They certainly don’t have the history of their predecessors as they have only been in existence since 1930 created as an oak glider rocking chair. It is based on a platform rocking chair where the rocking motion is delivered through a four bar linking track that runs along the chair’s base. It’s a non-parallel apparatus whose suspension allows it to move back and forth.

The swivel base was added in the 1960s by an American furniture maker. This allowed the chair to increase its mobility from merely rocking back and forth to rotating 180 degrees in both directions. Continue reading

Lens care is not just for prescription glasses

Sunglasses will last longer with a little bit of lens care as well. Here are some ideas on how you can get the materials you need to protect your sunglasses and keep them in top condition.

There are a number of different types of sunglasses lenses that will require some particular types of maintenance in order to remain useful. As an example, there are the interchangeable lenses for sunglasses for fly fishing. Interchangeable lens sunglasses require that you keep a special case for the lenses, one that will allow for protection when not in use. There are also special compounds and cleaning cloths that you will need to use in order to remove any water spots and contaminants that may have found their way onto the lenses during a fishing trip. It is important to remember that sunglasses with interchangeable lenses cost a little more than many standard types of sunglasses. Exercising proper lens care on interchangeable lenses help to keep this expensive type of sunglasses usable for many years, which is a great thing for the budget. Continue reading

King of all sunglasses accessories

Perhaps the king of all sunglasses accessories is the sunglasses case. These can come in soft side models, as well as more rigid types. All sunglasses cases will have some sort of protective lining that will effectively couch the sunglasses so that they are safe from scratching or being broken in a fall. Cases can be very plain affairs, much like the ones that you get when picking up a new prescription at the optometrist’s offices. There are also plenty of colorful cases out there that can be just as much of a fashion accessory as any pair of sunglasses. Let the looks of the cases reflect your personality, but just make sure that any cases you purchase have a nice lining that will protect the glasses, as well as be easy for you to open and close.

Along with having a great pair of sunglasses, there is also the need to invest in some sunglasses accessories. Some of these may be practical, but all of them can also be a lot of fun. Here are some examples of sunglasses accessories that are a must if you want to preserve the life and condition of your sunglasses.

Nothing Says Christmas Like Vintage Christmas Decorations And Lots Of Them!

I guess it’s the old world ambiance we surround ourselves with that makes Christmas so wonderful, that and the vintage Christmas decorations some of us display and fill our homes with.

Christmas traditions are based on childhood experiences.

The Christmas Season is a reminder of joyful memories of the years gone by. A sense of nostalgia, warmth and magic comes from decorating the home at Christmas time.

It’s no wonder even with all the gifts of modern technology, many still adore vintage Christmas decorations. People are bringing back tradition with vintage decorations in a very big way and you see them plugging up the shelving at your local shopping centers to cater to avid spenders of antique and vintage looking Christmas ornaments.

My glittery nail experiment

While attempting to do the new trend of having a complete matte nail with a shiny tip in the same color, well, Earl decided I needed to pick him up. I have found that Zoya nail polish takes far longer to dry even with my speed dry top coat that I love with all of my other polishes so three of my shiny charcoal tips got messed up. I should have known better than to even try.

I really didn’t want to start over again, so I remembered what a random girl in Walgreens told me when I picked up Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Rock-star pink that is basically pink, fuchsia and silver glitter fingernail polish. It is definitely not one of those sheer sparkle polishes. It goes on very opaque and glittery. Continue reading

Manic Panic Lipstick Swatches

Today I am reviewing about  Manic Panic Lipsticks. I really adore the packaging and have found that the red lipstick and powder I mentioned are my favorite items as I wouldn’t have a problem using them both at any time. I have been using the powder for a week now and love how it sets my makeup. I have had a ball playing with this collection even though I cannot wear it out and I have a totally different style.

However, I always respect the style of others and what others enjoy from super natural to very dark. I am somewhere in the middle with a dramatic smokey eye of any color most days and a nude lip or a nude eye with a nice red or wine lip.

Lengthening Mascara Showdown…Covergirl Lash Blast Length vs. MAC Zoom Lash

I have been desperately trying to use my Cover Girl Lash Blast products and my last attempt has been with the CG Lash Blast Length. I think the pictures will show the experience I had with this product. I chose MAC Zoom Lash to compare as this is also a lengthening mascara and I enjoy using it.

The Cover girl has a very flimsy rubber wand with these tiny little bristles that are hardly visible. It is almost as though you are trying to  apply mascara with no bristles and there is no support offered from the firmness of the wand. However, the MAC Zoom Lash wand is an “original” type of applicator that is of normal size. It has nice size bristles without being too small or too large. This is not a case of me defending MAC as this is the only MAC mascara that I enjoy using. Continue reading

Illasmasqua Nail Polishes

Hi, I am Jennifer. I want to tell something about Illasmasqua Nail Polishes Products.I love these polishes. Sephora has many different finishes and colors. The ones below are all Satin, but when I use my top coats they are shiny:

Face of the Day and Nail Art

Below you are viewing my first and amateur experience with actual beads that are created for your nails. They come in strips and are these cool beads that were provided to me by a website called Wow So Cool and I think they are awesome. I kept them so when I wear them again I will be able to get a better fit. You get a zebra print and another colorful print. I also have a pack of beaded pink and black butterflies that I am so excited to use. I have had these for a while, but they got lost in my storage. The polish I am so excited about using as it is a great summer color. Continue reading
