Is Your Car Equipped With Child Safety Feature?

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

It is amazing how a car helps me in my getting around town especially in running errands.  It is also very convenient in driving my darling daughter to and from school and after school activities. Living here in the USA, I say, owning a car is a very important necessity. But, is your car equipped with child safety feature?

The most important thing to keep in mind and to check when buying a car is it's car safety features. Besides mileage capacity and engine conditions, a car buyer should check of a car has a Latch System installed. The federal government required the cars manufactured after September 1, 2002 to have a Latch System. These are small metal bars located between the back and bottom seat cushions on the back passenger seats.  You can also find these small metal bars behind the over head seat pads. If you haven't seen those yet, go check in your cars now.  These metal bars are used to hook on the child safety car seats.  Installing these safety car seats needs the help of the fire department officer or a police officer to ensure proper installation.

Many people do not consider this safety feature but to me, it is a serious concern. For this purpose, I think a Latch System should not be taken for granted in any way. The safety of our children is at stake.  In addition, we are confident that with this special feature our kids are safer on the road.

Compact Pocket Trumpet

When I was in high school, I tried to join the school band. I found it interesting to play musical instruments and become a part of the school's special events. Whenever there are parades and special occasions, my school's band joins and performs.  Then band playing is awesome to hear and watch.  

But I didn't get the chance to audition to join the school band because I didn't have an instrument.  I have been wanting to play the trumpet, though. I couldn't find someone who owned one that I could rent. Trumpets are great musical instrument. It's sound is fun and lively. 

My advice is, if you are interested in playing a musical instrument, try to learn playing pocket trumpet available at Musicians Friend . It's compact size is very convenient to carry around. Learning to play a trumpet is enjoyable especially if you will play classical music.

Hair Styling Enhancement With Lace Front Wigs

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine. 

It is almost end of the school year, and it is graduation and recognition time.  Many of us are very busy during this last period of the the school year. Parents of graduating students are getting ready for the special day.  We all want to look nice and presentable. 

One of the places we go for pampering and beauty enhancements is the salon for hair care and up-dos. I enjoy going to the salon once in a while. But if you only want to make your hair look nice with great volume, I would suggest to just get a hair wig.  If you want to keep the current look and style of your hair, a sensationnel lace front wig would be a great accessory for your locks. Without worrying of fading or sagging, this wig can be of use for many occasions in your life.
For thin and frizzy hair like mine, a lace front wig can be a tool to make my hair look amazing.  I can always choose what color or volume of wig I like the most. Hair styling can be very tedious sometimes. But with a wig, hair styling is a charm. 

Congratulations to all the graduates! And congratulations, parents.

A Good Instrument For Musicians Use

There is nothing better than having a good time in your own home. Though sometimes we need to go out to unwind and get away from the busy work and home schedules. Some of us enjoy going to the karaoke bars. I do. But like I said, there is nothing better than enjoying the karaoke time in the comfort of your own home. No need to worry about the time.

But one of the tools that make their singing great is by using a high quality microphone at recording.  That always do the trick there.  This special instrument can do wonders if you find the good one.  So many musicians are rooting for this yeti microphone at . It's very popular and best seller. 

Imagine owning this type of microphone for your entertainment use. I bet this will help improve the sound of your voice while singing your favorite song.

Fun Activities and Things To Do at Beaver's Bend State Park Broken Bow Oklahoma

We spent a few days in Broken Bow, Oklahoma during the Spring Break.  My darling daughter liked to go back to the Beaver's Bend State Park. It's a very relaxing place with lots of things to do. 

K was looking forward to see lots of deer again. And we did. We also went hiking and night walking (we called it - night investigation). Then we rode the train at the train depot inside the park. We weren't able to ride the horses this time because the tickets were sold out due to prior reservations.  There were a lot of campers as well. My husband and I were talking about camping at Beaver's Bend State Park in a couple of years.  Aside from fishing, camping is one of main thing to do at Beaver's Bend park. If you enjoy camping, this is the place to go.

Another fun thing to do is boating on the lake. The Broken Bow Lake is huge that visitors to the park can enjoy boating, jet skiing, and even swimming (only in swimming areas in the summer).  Just being near the water brings you peace and serenity.

We cannot wait to go back and ride the horses next time we visit Beaver's Bend State Park.

Four Ways a Video Tour Can Help to Sell Your Home

When it comes to techniques used to sell a house, you may picture a realtor taking photographs of the inside and outside of the home. These photos are usually printed on paper fliers and in pamphlets kept at the realtor’s office. Today, there is a high-tech way to advertise a home that is for sale. Here are four ways that a 360, 3D luxury property video tour can help to sell your home.

Presenting a Full View

For a prospective buyer, watching a 3D video tour of a home is the next best thing to actually walking around the property. A video tour shows prospective buyers the main areas in a home as well as the quiet corners of rooms. An observer can get a very good idea of the spacious quality of a home by taking a video tour.  

Highlighting the Best Parts of Home 

By creating a video tour, a seller can highlight the most attractive parts of his or her home and property. For instance, if the home has a beautiful, antique fountain in the garden, a video tour can capture it from all angles. An airy sunroom, a well-stocked private library or an indoor pool can all be highlighted with ease in a video tour.

Allowing Room for Imagination

A video tour is an effective way to get prospective buyers imagining themselves in the rooms of a home. For example, showing all the design details and modern appliances in the home’s kitchen will make a tremendous impression on a buyer who loves spending time creating new dishes. The person may imagine him or herself moving around the kitchen preparing a delicious recipe for friends and family. When a buyer can imagine him or herself in the home, it makes the home even more desirable.    

Colorful, Memorable Images

The texture of the fabric on a sofa in the sitting room, the reflection of the sun in the window of a French door or a gathering of gleaming, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. These are just three examples of memorable images that could be captured on a video tour of a home. These images are sure to stay with the individuals taking the tour and may play a part in their final decision to buy.

Finally, a video tour can make an attractive home even more appealing to prospective buyers.

It's Not Too Late To Learn How To Play A Guitar

Have you ever been frustrated in your life? How did you conquer your frustrations? Did you ever challenge yourself to overcome that frustration?

My frustration was not able to learn any musical instrument when I was a little kid.  I envied some of my friends and most of cousins who knew how to play a guitar and/or a piano.  I liked to sing and I think I sing good. But I wanted to learn at least one musical instrument.  My favorite was the guitar.  My dad was a good guitar player. There was some points in time during my childhood that he wasn't able to teach me because he was working by shift at a factory before.  On his day off, he was very tired and he took naps a lot.  I was very active with playing outdoors that learning skills in music didn't even come to my mind back then.  

Anyhow, I think it's not even too late.  I am still interested in learning how to play a guitar.  I need a very nice guitar to practice with.  Then if I get better at it, it would be a great time to buy a high quality guitar at  guitar center charleston sc distributor.  Lots of selection of well-made guitars for music enthusiasts.  Even a great quality piece to add in your music instruments collection.

Even though I am quite old now, I will never stop yearning to learn to play this amazing music instrument.  The ability to do so can be passed on to my child.
