Why Women Should Wear Watches

Why Women Should Wear Watches

While men are expected to wear a watch to complete an outfit, the modern woman often goes without. One is tempted to conclude that the watch as an accessory is antiquated. However, there are compelling reasons why more women should spot watches.

In these days of smart devices that can tell the time, it may seem as if the watch is not needed. Nevertheless, fetching your phone from your bag to check the time does not cut a professional image. There are certain situations where doing that would be considered inappropriate.

Here are some of the reasons why women should consider wearing watches.

Accessoris          

A watch can be a great accessory to complement a great outfit. Your choice of watch also helps you to manifest your unique style. You can opt for one watch that that goes with almost every outfit or several watches to match different one.

Also, you can buy a watch that comes with different coloured straps to match with your different looks. Watches come in a wide range of styles and sizes. You will always find one that suits you.

A Watch is Convenient

A watch is right there on your wrist. It is easier and faster to turn your wrist and glance at the time. Rummaging through your bag for your phone takes so much time. Moreover, it is not a good look when in a formal situation.

You can also check your watch discreetly when you need to leave a testy situation. In fact, this used to be the go-to tactic with most people. Checking your phone may be considered rude.

It Helps You to Disconnect

The Smartphone is possibly the biggest competition for the watch. Why would you need a watch when you can simply glance at your watch?

Here’s why.

You will do a lot more than simply glancing. Once you check your phone, you are likely to:

  • Check the time
  • Open that WhatsApp message
  • Check your social media
  • React on somebody’s photo on your Facebook
  • Laugh at some funny meme

As you do all of this, you will have disconnected from your immediate circle. Your companions will feel neglected and your friendships will start to dwindle. With one of the designer watches for women, you will not have the same distractions.

A watch helps you disconnect from the social media and connect with family and friends.

A Watch is Good for a Slew of Functions

While a phone may be designed to multi-task, a watch is smaller; hence easier and safer to carry. Think about going or your morning run with your phone in hand. It can slip out of your grip and shatter on the ground. You could also lose it.

A watch is much lighter and safely strapped to your wrist. You can get one that tracks your exercise schedule and beeps out alerts throughout the day.

Revamp Your Lifestyle

With a watch taking up some of your phone’s functions, a lifestyle change is inevitable. You can stow …

Going Green on the Cheap

How would you like to know the secret to sparkling countertops, glass, and other surfaces in your home? I am gonna give it to you – and it costs less than 25 cents a spray bottle! Vinegar and water, folks – there you have it. I realize that I am the slow one here – family and friends have given me that tip for years, and I just have never purposed to change my large variety of expensive, harmful cleaners out for it.

Going Green on the Cheap

However, last week when I picked up the bottle of the new formula of Windex at the store, and it was simply labeled “vinegar,” I realized that all these years, I have been duped. I was about to pay over $3 for a small spray bottle of chemically enhanced vinegar and water! I promptly determined to go home and make my own green cleaners. So after some quick research online, I began using my trusty vinegar cleaner on everything, my glass tabletop, doors and windows, mirrors, kitchen countertops, stove top, and more! You would not believe my sparklin’ house, you all! Even my husband was pleasantly surprised that it does not smudge, smear, or streak!

Here are a couple of quick tips for any first-timers out there wondering how to get started on making your own green cleaners. (I know I wasn’t the only one still buying those chemical cleaners, because the products are still on the store shelves!)

1. To make the vinegar and water cleaner, simply put half water, half vinegar into a spray bottle, and Voila! No really, it’s that easy!

2. When I first start wiping the vinegar with newspaper, paper towel, rag (your choice, you already know what’s greener!) it looks as if it is going to smear, but keep wiping, and you will see the shine!

3. There is a great green bathroom cleaner you can use, it is hydrogen peroxide and water. You can search the net for valuable information on this green product, as well.

This is a such a good discovery! The scent is not offensive, and it leaves no harmful residue for family members or pets to inhale, ingest, or absorb. So now all I am asking myself is, what took me so long? It’s not rocket science, but more like, back to the basics our Mamas taught us! Enjoy this quick green cleaning tip, and contact me with your ideas – what simple solutions have you come up with to go green with your housecleaning and save money?…

Buying Toys Online – Tips and Advice

Buying toys online can be a great way to save money and also buy toys that may not be available in your local stores. But the question is – is it safe? You don’t want to get caught by online retailers who don’t send your product but take your money or even worse sell your credit card information.

We’ve written a short guide for those consumers wanting to buy toys and really any products online and want to know how they protect themselves.

The first thing to look for when buying toys online is site security. Look for SSL Certificates on the site to make sure that your payment details are protected by Secure Socket Layer technology which is the highest security level available. Sometimes online retailers don’t make it easy to find the SSL Certificate, so have a good look in the Frequently Asked Questions or use their Search function. If you still can’t find it – don’t share your credit card details.

The second thing to look for when buying online is a phone number. Sure, every website has a contact us page, but if they don’t want to share their phone number something is not right. The safest websites are those that display their phone number on every page – you may never need to use it, but if something goes wrong you know they will be at the end of the phone. Retailers who are easy to reach will stand by their products and service.

Another important factor especially when buying toys is to make sure you are buying well know brands that have been safety tested. Whilst there are some great generic toy brands out there, the problem with buying them online is you can’t see them or feel them and you generally don’t know how safe they are for your child. So stick with brands you know and trust.

The final factor is of course price, if you’re buying online you should be saving money – so shop around and use those Contact Us page to get yourself a better deal. Most online retailers are happy to price match.

Last but not least – remember if a website looks dubious, doesn’t have a lot of product information or just gives you a feeling like it’s been thrown together in a day – buyer beware. Most serious online retailers put enormous amounts of time and effort into their websites and back it up with excellent service, but if someone can’t be bothered to put effort into their “shop front” then generally their products and service are below par as well.

Remember, online toy shopping is great fun, convenient and can save you time and money – so enjoy!…
