What is the Best Vinyl Flooring Brand for my Home

With so many vinyl flooring brands doing the rounds and new ones springing up from time to time with limited lifespan, which one is the best for any upcoming design changes to your home that isn’t just a flash in the pan product?

Whilst many options present themselves as the number one in the vinyl flooring market, only one stands ahead as the most popular choice. That option is Luvanto luxury vinyl flooring.


From wood effect, stone, ceramic and especially abstract designs in supply and demand when it comes to flooring, Luvanto is the brand with the larger quantities of suitable options to fit any room of your home.


Secure Fitting


Every type of floor falls victim to something within days of it being fitted.


The most common problems stem from liquids spilt or food dropped and mashed into the floor. All kinds of household carpets are left with a lasting stain and discoloration from too many scrub attempts to remove these instances. Then people are left seriously out of pocket on differing ranges of specialty cleaning chemicals to try and get the floor back to its original look.


With Luvanto planks or tiles there are a lot of considerations taken into effect to prevent these instances ruining your floor. 


Should those liquids or foods find themselves on your flooring, simple household products can restore the floor with minimal cleaning. Usually just a simple household mop and water mixed with vinegar leaves your floor looking as it should, with no money spent on specialist cleaning products to remove the stain. Some sauces that have distinct food colourings such as tomato sauces or curries could use a more thorough clean to avoid slight discoloration, but if cleaned up straight after making contact with the floor it should clean up simply.


More Range Over Competitors


With more years being the market leading popular brand it's no surprise that more options exist within Luvanto luxury vinyl flooring.


From wood to stone to porcelain designs, Luvanto provides much more colours and palettes to choose from. Whilst popular replicated looks such as dark woods give ambience to a room, people also gravitate towards more stone abstract options or a unique combination of both to connect or separate spaces within the home. Bathrooms and kitchens are targets for stone look vinyl whilst living rooms, conservatories and hobby rooms aim towards the wooden style.


When you want the best selections, Luvanto and it’s ranges like Luvanto Endure Pro and Luvanto Design certainly can provide more options.


Supply on Demand


With LVT being the big thing for home design there is a huge influx of qualified suppliers to help give your home the right feel.


Luvanto luxury vinyl flooring offers a market leading product through its core ranges and brings professional looks and feels to any room you wish to design specific to a look. When interior designers or market research conducts a poll on the best flooring in today’s marketplace, Luvanto is a regular visitor to the top five options and tops the vinyl flooring brands in the popular polls.


Considering the amount of differing brands in the vinyl market, it speaks volumes that Luvanto has managed to maintain its position for so long, which surely makes it the top consideration for your floor at home.

Making Important Decisions As A Parent

 

Benjamin Manley on Unsplash


From the moment your child is born, you are instilled with a certain sense of responsibility. Not only must you ensure that you provide them with the love, care and support they need to grow and develop - you also need to begin making decisions that affect multiple people as opposed to yourself. 


As a result, you may find it much harder than usual to make difficult decisions - after all, the repercussion can now be far-reaching. However, when this is the case, it is important you trust in yourself, your knowledge and your instincts. As a parent, you will always know what is best for your children - and you can use this knowledge to make difficult decisions much easier and more straightforward than they may seem.


Nevertheless, certain topics definitely require more thought than others. For example, if you and your partner no longer want any more children, you may be discussing different birth control options or considering solutions such as a vasectomy or tubal ligation. These are big decisions that shouldn’t be taken lightly and require a lot of care, sensitivity and thought ahead of time. 


With that in mind, here are some ways in which you can begin to make difficult decisions a little easier for everyone involved! 


Don’t rush the process. While some decisions may be time-sensitive (such as accepting a big job offer or moving house), others are not. Therefore, it is important that you do not rush unnecessarily into a decision, especially if it will have an impact on the family as a whole. Take your time to consider all options and the positive and negative aspects of each situation as it presents itself. 



Don’t sweat the small stuff. As a parent, you’ll always want to do what is best for your kids. Therefore, you may find yourself over-analysing certain situations or decision - even though they may be inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. Therefore, it is vital that you learn not to get caught up on things that don’t matter. 


 

Be honest. As with any collective decision, everybody’s needs and best interests must be taken into consideration. For example, an exciting new job offer at a company you love may seem like a no brainer - but it may require you to move home or spend less time with your children. However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good decision - you just need to ensure that the positives outweigh the negatives and that you are honest with yourself about what you want. If you are unhappy about a certain situation - don’t sit quietly - let your voice be heard.


Get everyone involved in the conversation. As they grow older, your children will begin to formulate their own thoughts and opinions and, as a result, deserve to be a part of meaningful conversations. While the ultimate decision will remain with yourself and your partner - sitting down and keeping your kids in the loop is a great way to teach them important skills in patience, communication and teamwork. This helps them overcome hurdles and grow into adulthood and beyond.

Last minute mothers day gifts

Feel like you've left it a little late for mothers day this year? No idea what to get her? Well here's a short list of ideas to wow her on that special day. 

 

First up is a card, most supermarkets sell cards from about 99p upwards even somthibg small and short worded still means the world to her.

Time for presents?! The top on my list is a Little Shelford portable digital radio, I'm forever listening to radio and music and this is perfect to have in the kicthen or to take out in the garden too. It's so cute and such a great price too. Have a look on Amazon here. 


Next is some good old fashion flowers, maybe an orchid or a lovely bouquet of carnations these are available from most good supermarkets but you can always get them delivered with Interflora

Chocolates are always a must have for mothers day and there's nothing better than pigging out on a box of choccies while the kids beg you for some! 

Maybe bake a cake? Or if your terrible at baking you could always order one from Eat Your Photo 

Peace and quiet? Does that exist? Maybe if your partner has been having a stressful time lately maybe let her have a lie in while you take the kids out to the park or while she has a nice bath entertain them to give her that much deserved peace. 

I hope all the mummies have an amazing mother's day and you treat her good! Much love x

The Real Reason Men Grow Beards [Guest Post]

From a developmental point of view, why do men grow beards? Is it pride? Dominance? Or laziness? Or any other reason. Many research types have shown that beards likely evolved to help men boost their standing among other men. You might think that all the facial hair you see on the street is to attract females. However, several studies have shown that men and women find that men with beards appear older, healthier, and more aggressive than non-bearded men. 

Some studies find that women prefer stubble, while others show that women like men with full beards. In comparison, some others show that women find clean-shaven men the most attractive. Though, the reason could be anything behind do women like beards?


However, bearded men are regarded as masculine, resourceful, and determined. Each bearded man is different, and everyone has their own unique set of circumstances that initiated them into the lifestyle. The reasoning behind the new manes is generally much more straightforward or more evident than you would assume. Keeping that in mind, we have discussed below some of the real reasons’ men grow out of their beards. 

The followings are some of the real reasons why do men grow out their beards:


  • Beards look cool-


This is probably the common reason behind growing out a beard. On some men’s beards look simply fabulous. Whether you go for a lighter look, a more groomed look, or just letting your beard run wild, you will make a more distinct impression among family, friends, and strangers. Growing out a beard will give you a presence that cannot be depicted in any other way. Without doing anything besides allowing your body to act naturally, you will look more masculine. If you are looking for a transformation and want to make a statement, then growing a beard is the easiest option.

  • You want to grow a facial hair because someone else suggests it-


For many of the guys, wanting to grow a beard is not enough to get them to set the razor. Sometimes it helps if someone else suggests providing the boost of confidence and assistance required to wander into the grooming area. The one who is very close to you means it; then many bearded men will take this as a hint to think bearded thoughts and start the journey towards hair glory. Though sometimes, what it takes is a little encouragement to change your life for the better, and while before you know it, you will appreciate friends to do the same. 


  • Beards help you to stay warm-


Many years ago, men used to grow a beard not out of choice but out of necessity. In the early days, people weren’t shaving too frequently. Since then, men in colder climates depend on their beards to help them stay warm and protect their face with harsh winter winds. Snow, ice, current, and dryness can take it all on a guy’s face, and at that time, bearded men were more worried about survival than comfort. At that time, today, most of the bearded men rely upon their beards to protect themselves from the harsh winter. 


  • Express laziness-


The above might surprise you, but this is the most common reason men grow out their beards because of pure laziness. Shaving is not fun; it is time-consuming, painful, and nerve-shaking. And the best way to avoid these things is to keep up the facial hair. However, it might provide you to trim up parts of your beard at a certain point, but for the most pull-out part, you can just let it grow in whatever pattern it is developing.

  • Hiding up what’s beneath your beard-


Besides complementing your other features and providing you with an aspect of masculinity, facial hairs are a great way to redesign your facial features and select what parts of your face are and aren’t visible. For younger guys, beards are a helpful way to cover up the bad skin or acne, essentially acting as a covering to your face’s floor. Similarly, if you are a heavier set guy with a less defined jawline or chin, beards can act as a great way to heighten whatever features you favor the most. However, it is essential to embrace your personality and carry confidence in yourself. But you will need to remember that just because you were not born with a beard doesn’t mean you cannot include it in your identity. Whatever makes you feel comfortable, embrace it to the fullest. 


Conclusion:


There are many reasons men grow a beard, but some men can also grow out a beard simply because they like it. Growing out a beard can provide many benefits, out of which some of them are discussed above.

Quick N' Easy Remedies For Heartburn

 Heartburn is far more common than one thinks. Yet, it is one of the most uncomfortable experiences that results in hiccups, a burning sensation in your throat and chest and sometimes even acid reflux. It is usually caused or sometimes triggered by eating spicy or acidic foods which can be avoided when possible; however, when heartburn does strike there are certain things you can do to ease the discomfort. Here are some quick and easy remedies for heartburn.

An Over-The-Counter Medicine

The quickest heartburn treatment is to take an antacid that gives immediate but short-term relief or a PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) medicine that gives long-term relief. PPIs work by decreasing the amount of acid made by the stomach, which in turn helps relieve symptoms and discomfort. 

These medicines need no prescription and can be taken on a daily basis; however if you are unsure consult your doctor first.


Identify (And Avoid) Triggers

Certain foods and food groups are also known to trigger heartburn. Spicy and acidic foods are the most common culprits but sometimes certain foods and drinks affect some people prone to heartburn while not bothering others. These include chocolate, peppermint, milk, coffee, alcohol and fizzy drinks. Identify which foods and drinks spark off feelings of discomfort for you and where possible, avoid them completely. 

Change Your Routine 

Sometimes, small things such as exercising too soon before or after eating, or a particular sleeping position, can trigger heartburn. Doing something as simple as changing your routine (exercising at least an hour before a meal) or sleeping on your left side instead of on your back or front, for instance, can help you manage your heartburn more effectively. 

Pregnancy-Related Heartburn 

Heartburn is also a common side-effect during pregnancy, primarily because of the additional weight which puts pressure on the stomach and weakens the muscles of the oesophagus. Eating smaller, more frequent meals instead of larger meals, and leaving a gap of at least 1-2 hours between dinner and bedtime to aid in digestion often helps. Wearing loose-fitting PJs also helps you feel more comfortable when sleeping or lying down. 

Quit Smoking

There is no ‘good’ reason for smoking and heartburn is another reason to quit. Cigarettes and even second-hand cigarette smoke is a trigger for heartburn, so if you’re a smoker, there’s another reason to give it up.

Other Useful Tips

  • Sleeping with your upper body slightly elevated also helps in easing the discomfort of heartburn. Either raise the head of your bed or use 3-4 pillows and sleep slightly upright from the waist. 

  • Sipping on ginger tea (just boiling water seeped in ginger - avoid the milk) through the day is also a known home remedy for heartburn.

  • Another lesser-known home remedy is to dissolve a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water and drink it slowly. Baking soda helps neutralize the acid in the stomach.

  • Avoid tight, restrictive clothing as far as possible - the more comfortable and loose your clothes are (especially around the waist), the less sick you will feel.

  • Chewing gum is also effective as it helps to dilute the acid in your stomach

Transitioning From Adobe Acrobat To Adobe LiveCycle Designer

Adobe LiveCycle Designer and Adobe Acrobat actually posses diverse scripting object models. This can be quite confusing for many, but this article aims to clear it up. By revealing the differences between the two as well as providing advice on conversion, you should be a lot clearer regarding how to convert the JavaScript found in Adobe Acrobat for use in Adobe Livecycle Designer. Read on to find out more…


Let’s begin by revealing a little bit more about the LiveCycle Designer software which was released last year. This has been designed in order to let you build intelligent forms. There are various methods for doing so, such as adding form logic through LiveCycle Designer UI or adding JavaScript scripting. This is highly beneficial because through working offline and alike it can enhance workflow efficiency and usability dramatically. Another reason why this program is popular is because it gives the possibility of saving in PDF containing the XML form data, XDP, HTML and more. Get some Free SVGs to help you make amazing designs.

When dealing with Adobe Acrobat and Adobe LiveCycle Designer it is not the case that the two completely do not work together. A lot of the Acrobat JavaScript will work in LiveCycle Designer formats. Yet, there are some that won’t and this is due to the difference between the two scripting models as there is barely any overlap. Companies like Supportiv can assist if you need more programs in place to run all of your work.

When converting the JavaScript found in Adobe Acrobat to Adobe LiveCycle Designer the first thing you need to do is decide how much of Acrobat can actually be used in LiveCycle Designer form, and consequently how much needs to be converted.

Make a table and spilt it into three categories. The first category is for those that do work in LiveCycle Designer forms. However, they do not have any LiveCycle Designer JavaScript equivalent either. The second is for those that again work however there is the possibility for a conversion to LiveCycle Designer JavaScript. And finally, the latter category is for those that simply have to be converted because they do not work in LiveCycle Designer forms. Most technology experts recommend converting all that is possible. Yet, begin with your necessities; those that will not work without conversion.

There are various different ways to make the transition to Adobe LiveCycle Designer; this encompasses everything from LiveCycle Designer UI form logic to FormCalc scripting. The latter is a popular and effective option. FormCalc is essentially an easy and straightforward calculation language. It is popular because it doesn’t need the knowledge of traditional scripting techniques it can actually facilitate quick and effective form design without it. This is especially beneficial for individuals who are going to be using the software and performing a substantial amount of calculations.

Nevertheless, the method of conversion you select largely depends on your design goals as well as your skill set. FormCalc Scripting is quite straight forward but some programming knowledge would be useful. There is also LiveCycle Designer UI form logic; this is extremely easy to create and maintain and thus no programming skills are required. And then there is LiveCycle Designer JavaScript which is recommended you have programming ability for. Make sure you don’t choose anything that is out of your depth.

But finally, if you are struggling then simply look to the internet for guidance. You will find lots of step-by-step guides which talk you through the exact process; from importing a file to testing and debugging. You will never be too far away from help.

Top Signs that Stress is Taking over your Life

If you experience stress on a day to day basis then you will know how debilitating it can be. Even if you think that you are handling it well, this may not always be the case. If you want to make sure that you are not putting yourself at risk for various health problems or if you want to combat your stress once and for all then this guide will certainly help you out.

Stress Can Stop you from Sleeping

Stress can also stop you from being able to sleep. Studies have shown time and time again that stress triggers the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and this plays a huge part in your sleep schedule. You may find that you experience sleep loss and that you find yourself going over the same situations in your head again and again. This is essentially your brain working overtime so that a solution can be found.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding is a symptom of stress and it can cause huge damage to your teeth if you don’t get it sorted. The main reason why this happens is because your subconscious mind has a heightened level of activity and this needs to be released somehow. Grinding your teeth can cause dental problems and it can also give you a painful jaw too. 70% of bruxism cases can be directly associated with stress, so you need to try and prioritise your anxiety and put yourself first so that you can stop your teeth from grinding at night. If you are having a really hard time dealing with anxiety, then it’s a good idea for you to look into treating that. Remember that CBD can help anxiety, if you want a natural solution that you can easily access online.

Headaches

Stress can easily cause headaches. Tension headaches can wreak havoc on your life, and they can last from an hour to a few hours. Headaches like this can put pressure on both sides of your head and you may find that you also experience neck tension too. If you experience headaches like this on a weekly basis then this is a sign that something needs to change.

Irritability

Stress can impact your mood in ways that you probably find very hard to control. When you are stressed out, your nervous system will be overly responsive, and you may find that your sensory receptors are much more sensitive to various stimuli. This makes everything feel more intense than it actually is, and you may find that it spills over into your life more than you realise. This can also make you more reactive, which can have a knock-on impact on your job performance. If you want to stop this from being an issue, then you need to try and make sure that you do everything you can to lower the stress in your life. If you are under too much pressure at work, then this may mean talking to your boss about lowering your responsibilities. If you are struggling at home, consider exploring the idea of childcare.

Showing Your Partner You Love Them: How Can You Do It?

When you are in a relationship, it’s important that your partner knows you love them. You need to make sure that they know, otherwise they may end up questioning it, which could lead to the demise of the relationship altogether. People need reassurance. People need to be told the things that you are thinking in order to know them. Nobody on this planet can mind read, and you should never expect someone to know something that is not being proven. In this article, we are going to be taking a look at some of the things that you can do to show your partner that you love them. If you would like to find out more about this topic, keep reading down below.

Little Gifts


The first thing that you can do is leave them little gifts every now and then. These don’t have to be expensive, but just something to let them know that you were thinking about them. For example, you could pick them up a bunch of flowers on your way home from work one day. It’s not going to bankrupt you, but it’s enough to put a smile on their face. Or, you could get them something that you know they like, just to see them be happy for a while. It doesn’t have to be a lot, but it shows that there is effort being put into the relationship. Effort goes where effort is received, and that’s something you need to keep in mind.


Leave Them Notes


Something else that you can think about doing is leaving them little notes around their/your home. Let them know the things that you are thinking. Let them know what runs through your mind when you see them first thing in the morning. Let them know what you see when you think about your future together. It’s little things like this that give people the reassurance they need to know they are loved and cared for. It takes a couple of minutes out of your day, but it makes their entire day.


The notes don’t have to be essays. You could simply write one sentence and change their mood for an entire day. Again, it’s the thought that counts here more than anything else.


Be There


Lastly, you need to be there. Be there when they need you. Be there when things are falling apart. Be there when they are happy. Be there when they want to talk. Be there when it feels like the world is turning upside down. Keep showing up, even when it gets hard. Don’t threaten to leave when things get tough. Don’t be looking up divorce solicitors every time you have a fight. Just be there.


We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you can do in order to show your partner you love them. It’s important that you do this if you want your relationship to survive, so if you’re not currently doing anything to let the one you love know this, then you need to start sooner rather than later. We wish you the best of luck with this, and hope some of these suggestions help.

Keep Your Family Safe and Protected With These Tips

Image by Daria Shevtsova on Pexels

 

There are almost too many reasons to worry about the safety of your family. Natural disasters, burglaries, house fires and financial despair are never too far out of the realm of possibility.

 

However, you can give yourself some much-needed peace of mind. Take the time to make yourself, and your family, more aware, safe and conscientious. A few minutes of preparedness could save you some tears. Below are several safety tips to keep your family safe and happy!

 


 

Buy a Home Security System

 

A study conducted by Ackerman Security suggests that a home security sign on your lawn could deter a burglar. When performing a break-in, a burglar wants to be in and out as quickly as possible. A home security system is a great way to deter burglars and keep your family completely safe immediately.

 

New smart home devices, like alarms, video recording doorbells, or a video system attached to your smartphone, have gone a long way in making burglar detection more thorough.

 

Research Your Medical Providers in Advance

 

It is easier than ever in this day and age to jump on the internet and find your next health practitioner. However, you want to be extremely careful about who you choose to care for you and your family. You might find yourself among the medical malpractice statistics calling up Greg Hoag, medical malpractice attorney, to sue your doctor or surgeon. Medical malpractice is the cause of approximately 250,000 deaths annually behind cancer and heart disease.

 

It is essential to research your health practitioner extensively before choosing to bring your family to see them. You want to find a health service full of staff who cares about you and your family as much as you care. There are incredible doctors you can find on the internet – you just need to be careful!

 

Create A Designated Family Code Word

 

One of the most challenging things for any parent is to entrust your child’s safety and care to someone else. You want to ensure that your kids, especially as they get older, can inform you of any dangerous situations. One way to do this is a code word—a particular word used to entrust safety or be used in unsafe or dangerous circumstances.

 

It should be a word unique to your family, something that only you, your most trusted family members and your kids know. Teach your children that they are never to leave, speak to or trust anyone who can’t say the secret code. As your kids get older, this should be a word that your kids can use conversationally, over the phone or through text to come to pick them up or help them immediately.

 

Practice Disaster Preparedness

 

When was the last time your smoke detectors were tested? Do you have an emergency fire escape plan? How about an emergency preparedness kit? We get drilled at home or school to practice emergency fires, but how often do we practice disaster preparedness with our families?

 

The best way to ensure your family’s safety from a fire is to teach them fire prevention skills and a fire safety plan. Teach your kids how to use a fire extinguisher, and how to call the fire department in times of emergency.

 

This preparedness should extend to potential weather emergencies that can harm your home, like a storm, earthquakes, flooding, or wildfires. Consider family emergency periodically, so everyone knows where to go and what to do in the event of an emergency. Put together a safety checklist to show your kids, and the rest of your family, exactly what to do to stay safe.

 

Life is full of the unexpected, but that does not mean you can’t help your family stay protected from the unexpected!

So here's to this lockdown not lasting all year so we get out and explore!

REMINDER: Please make sure to check and follow your government guidelines on travel before you go and to only make essential journeys until your restrictions change but most importantly stay safe.
