I just needed that one last touch to finish the job

19 June, 02:49, by Queenie

We just finished having our whole home renovated and redecorated. The process of new floors, furniture and even paint on the walls has made our home in to the one we have always dreamed of owning. The last thing we needed to add, to make the home truly complete, were window treatments. I decided that blinds were an ideal option for us and I was right. I simply love how the shutters Manchester look in our home,. They are stylish enough that I did not even need to use curtains or valances in some areas and in those where I did, the blinds matched well with everything I had in mind. The blinds bring a finished and polished look to your home and also look great from the outside as well.

A little creativity can go a long way!

For an upcoming costume contest, that was offering cash prizes, I decided to increase my chances of winning. In order to do that, I hired a very talented Manchester makeup artist, that I was connected with via a very good friend that used her. I arrived at her office, two hours before the party I was to attend that had the costume contest, to meet the artist. I had some ideas about what I thought the make up should look like, and upon meeting Patty, I knew that I was in the right hands so to speak. I felt after trying on my costume and getting her feedback, she knew exactly what to do. So as I took the chair, I felt extremely confident that this experience was going to be worth the service fee. The fee was extremely reasonable for the final results, which took close to an hour to complete.

The ultimate irony!

The wedding day was upon us and we lingered through the crowds. We were breathless with anticipation about what the vows would abound.

The bride and groom entered and they took their place. The party favors were in the back waiting for their time and place. The bride and groom hasd waited all of this time for their own firworks. That when it came time to the kissing part, they wree just about to burst. The vows were read and the priest said the prayer. They both said their I do’s and they atmosphere began to flare. They both leaned in and prepared for the kiss. As the both open their mouth something began to be amiss.

The kiss was upon them and something else boomed. The part favor fireworks went off instead. A sigh from both the bride and the groom

Now that is what I call wedding fireworks!

With A Little Elbow Grease

07 May, 02:44, by Queenie

I find the perfect house, a three bedroom two bath 2500 square foot Victorian style house. It is a beauty, at least to me anyway. However the house will require some work. The walls need to be repainted and the hardwood floors need redone. Not to mention the kitchen needs some updates. The floors were already re-finished and lighting was updated but the countertops need to be updated. I am looking into quartz.

I am decorating as I go along and, I am looking into buying my shading. I type in perfect fit blinds on google and find a site that sell plantation shutters and I love them they will look great in my living room.

I like my new house and with a little elbow grease it will be perfect. I am halfway through my renovations and I like having a say in the way my house will look.

Best Night Sleep in Years

When you spend time trying to take better care of your body, there often can be consequences that you are not aware of when you first start your journey. Running is how I maintain my weight and how I help to keep my muscles strong. When I run first thing in the morning, my metabolism kicks into gear early and helps me to burn my food into energy more easily. Running does take its toll on my feel and legs though.

Unable to get a good nights sleep because of the pain in my legs, a friend recommended I try Manchester acupuncture. I was unsure at first if this was for me, but I followed through and got my first treatment. That evening I slept soundly and without pain for the first time in a long time. I woke up feeling refreshed and looking forward to getting back to running again that day.

Enough of the Cold

That was it. I was finished with all the cold weather. Temperatures reached the negative mark and the news anchor warned that standing in the cold for more than five minutes could cause hypothermia. I was not going to deal with the cold weather another day. The first break I could make, I was ready to make a change, even if just for a week. Equipped with a mug of hot coffee and literature on warmer climates, I was ready to make plans. The most appealing piece of reading material I had was on hotels in Dubai. It was settled. I was going to make reservations for a vacation in Dubai. I never expected that the cold weather could force me plan a spontaneous trip to a foreign country, but enough is enough. It was time to do something about my frustration with the deep freeze that sat outside my window.
