We live in an era, when the multitasking is the new must-do. Back in the past people had one thing in mind and did one thing at a time only. The men were hunting, while the women were preparing dinner and the children were playing with some wild animals. Or at least that is how we see those years. Some things changed with the time, but until the past century indeed not really. The men were going to work every day and the women stayed at home where they maintained the house and took care of the children, who were either building Lego or doing their homework. But we are in the 21st century now and nothing is that easy any more. People are driving their cars to work, planning their days, listening to music, talking to their children, drinking coffee, eating breakfast, swearing the other drivers, looking at the navigation, taking another sip from your cup of coffee and this all at once. And you haven’t even reached your workplace and haven’t even started this day properly. The multitasking is our savior. Only thus we could manage to do everything we should and in the same time have some a few hours for a nice book, a cuddle with the beloved one or a nice talk with friends over a bottle of wine. Yeah, multitasking is something we learn to love now. And one of its many advantages is making every cleaning task a much more pleasant one.
Work at Home and Clean your House
More and more companies these days are encouraging their employees tohave a day or two in the week when they are working from their nice and cozy homes. And if you are self-employed you can have a day like this any time. But the truth is that you won’t be able to spend 12 hours working, being super effective and you will need some time for a break. Why not cleaning your house then? This will be an activity completely different from your other ones and you will be able to relax, while making your house shine. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Clean up your House and Do your Work Out
You want to stay fit, but you are that busy during the weekdays that you have to choose between an hour more sleep or an hour spent in the gym. And we all know how hard it is in the reality to sacrifice this hour spent otherwise in the lovely, cozy and warm bed. However, there is a way to
burn calories without having to leave the house. And it’s getting even greater. At the end you will have a perfect looking house. Vacuum and dust and you have done your daily work out.
Clean your House and Have some Fun
No matter whether you will invite a bunch of friends who will help you by the spring cleaning or you will watch the new episode of your favorite series, you could have fun, while bringing your place in a perfect condition.
Winter is coming. Christmas is just around the corner, the leaves are crunchy, the days chilly, the landscapes beautiful and the everydayness busy. And in this autumnal-winter reality the outfit choice is so much harder. It was so nice once, when the sun was shining and the atmosphere was careless – a chic dress and comfy sandals made you look like goddess, but what now? You feel the coldness on your cheeks, your hands are freezing, your lips as well and you dream of the warmness of the cosy home and a cup of hot chocolate only. The outfit seems to be so insufficient. However, your desire to look great is unfreezing and you simply need to find a way. Luckily, here are the top winter trends that won’t make you die in the cold winter nights, but will keep you warm and make you look splendid.
Skinny jeans and maxi jumper
This combination is a total must-do. The jeans should be the comfiest one and should contrast to that huge jumper that looks like a blanket all over you and keeps you warm and cosy as if you are covered with warmness. This combination is a saviour indeed.
In these seasons layers are the new sexy. A jumper over a dress and a jacket over the jumper. Long socks over tights and boots over those socks. It looks nice and it feels so nice, when it is raining or snowing or the weather is as cold as in the Antarctic.
Scarves in any size and shape and colour. Huge ones and tiny ones as well. Never ever leave your home without one. They make your outfit complete and they keep you “safe and sound”.
There are million reasons you could want to buy a house on that peninsula full of magic and if I try to mention them all – the sunny, endless beaches, the perfectly azure, clear and still, welcoming sea, the sunbeams that make your skin darker and settle so comfortably in your soul, the people who carry the wisdom of the ancient Greeks and adapt it to the reality of busy everydayness and distant relationships so uniquely, people, who will not only tell you that the little things are what indeed matters, but will show it with their actions and with their lives, full of sunny summers, full moons and sirtaki, then I will lose my whole life. But if you tell me that you want to buy a house there, a summer villa or a small studio, then I would understand, I won’t need some further explanation, because one thing I know for sure: everybody craves for happiness and this place is happiness-machine, time travelling in a new form – in some weird state where time has no meaning and no dimension. It’s heaven, this place, pure heaven. So when you have already made this decision, the best in your life, then you better not lose any more time, because now, right now, is the best moment to buy there.
The Greek economic crisis is something we have all heard of. What it causes are prices of any kind of properties much lower than years ago and maybe much lower than they will soon be. Greece has no money, this is wide known, and for this reason anyone who comes ready to invest is so nicely welcomed. Grab your phone or your laptop and contact a real estate agency, specialized in this region, now. And next summer will be the best in your life.
To be honest, we need to admit that cleaning the studio, the apartment, the house or whatever place you live in is no one’s favorite task or pastime. Well, yeah, there are a few neat freaks out there who clean all the time, but they are such rare species that could be hardly found. And there we are, moving in a wonderfully clean, organized and just perfect house and considering cleaning it between the packing, the move out cleaning inspection and the actual move out. And yeah, this means that the majority of people cleans the house only once for the whole time and this is right before leaving it. And haven’t you thought how insane and ridiculous this is? We are never cleaning our houses for ourselves any more. We are cleaning them for the ones that will come after us and do the absolute same thing. It saves time, energy and efforts, but it is masochistic, as well, because just like you are taking care of yourself, your car, etc., you need to take care of the place you spend so much time in. The home is part of your heart and you need a nice and healthy heart, don’t you? Well, then you need to give your house these:
The Oven Cleaning
This one is disgustingly grease for sure, unless you are never using it. That is why you need to take care of it regularly. And because this specific clean-up turns out to be super demanding and super hard, I believe the better option is relying on the professionals. With the strong, efficient, and environmental-friendly cleaning products they use, they achieve greatness and pure perfection. It is not something you pay for on a weekly basis, but don’t forget to arrange an appointment for such cleaning every once in a while.
The Carpet Cleaning
This is no way less important than the oven one. Your carpet is dirtier than you think it is and this is absolutely certain. Even if you make some efforts, and I believe you do, and if you vacuum-clean it every week or so and you take care of the stains right when they appear, there would be still a problem. The carpets tend to accumulate more dust and dirt than you expect. And they are so full of it that they could cause infections, allergies and breathing problems. And as you don’t want this, hire the experts.
The Full House Cleaning
This is just like an end of tenancy one. It is deep, inclusive and specialized and the only difference is that when the cleaners are over and leave your house, you won’t have to live right after that, but will have the chance to stay and enjoy. The full house cleaning is a total life saver and if you need it in the spring, just call the professionals, arrange an appointment, go shopping while they are perfecting your house and go home to a wonderfully looking one.
You want to have a fancy home, but you want to buy that adorable dress from the newest collection, that portable charger, which would make all your gadgets work longer, and you want to pay that trip to Dubai as well as all the dinners and lunches and little moments of pleasure you could have there. Yeah, it is all about priorities in life, but how to find yours? What is more important, you will most probably never know. Everything matters and everything will make you happy and bring joy to your heart in a different way. So maybe devoting a part of your salary for each one is the best option. But then how to furnish the house so as to make it sassy with this limited amount of money. Well, you need to be creative and you need to start with the cheapest decoration that every home needs indeed – the frames.
These will bring you back to the fondest memories of yours and all the places they were created. You will think of the special people around you who you so deeply love and the way they make your life worthy. So spread the photos around.
The Pieces of Art
Buying a painting of Van Gogh or Picasso is certainly not something anybody could afford, but what if you need to have such things at home? Well, luckily, there are reproductions that would make the case. They are charming, inexplicable and moving. Who needs more?
Something else you can put in frames and spread around your home are the words. Different quotes and thoughts and lyrics or citations. Everything is suitable if it touches you, motivates you or inspires. All we have is words.
