Whether you’re building a house from scratch or just installing a second bedroom upstairs, it’s important to only choose the best in contractors. The right choice can save you hundreds of dollars and untold hours of setbacks! Here are just a few tips for getting your money’s worth in a contractor.
1. Ask for Referrals
Has your neighbor refurbished their living room? Has your aunt re-done the tiles in her bathroom? Who did they call? Ask around for referrals and recommendations. If a contractor has satisfied the people you know, they’ll probably satisfy you as well.
2. Check Their Credentials
Not every state requires their contractors to be licensed, so if you’re concerned about the legitimacy of the people you let into your home, you’ll definitely want to inquire about their licensure. You might also check for any lawsuits or scam alerts put out against the brand. (more…)
Do you have one or more of your photos that you feel looks great – but you know could be improved if you were able to edit them ever so slightly? Many people shy away from editing photos because they feel it is too complicated – but that isn’t necessarily the case.
The one thing that you need if you want to edit your photos is the software to do so, and choosing the right one is essential. While there are some options out there, the fact is that if you’re looking for a simple photo editor that is easy to use and yet comes with the powerful features that you’d need to make your photo look amazing – the Movavi Photo Studio definitely is worth a look.

Hey folks! How do you do? How was your past month of August? I hope the first two weeks of September is treating you well. I cannot complain for now. Things are going smoothly for me so far and I am thankful about it. The very first week of September went great.
It seems like yesterday when I celebrated my birthday. It was in the month of August. Now, we are in the first month of the so-called BER month. During this month, I always remember my home country when people already starts to decorate their homes with Christmas decors and accessories. You can even hear Christmas songs everywhere. I can’t even imagine if I can do it here in my second home in Europe. I mean doing Christmas decors. (more…)
I’ve recently finished redecorating my house and I have to say I’m rather proud of my achievements. From the colors I had hand matched to suit my space, to the refurbished handles I used to revamp my old chest of drawers, it finally feels like a place that I can call my own. Of course, the worst part of this is that now everything is so perfectly finished, the need to keep it clean, tidy and clutter free at all times has become an obsession and I’ve become infatuated with finding nifty ways to keep all my bits and pieces out of sight.
Growing for gold
One of the main problems I have with keeping my bed side unit clutter free is that by the end of the day, once I’ve done the dishes and caught up on some television, it’s too easy to take off my jewelry and leave it on the bathroom shelf as I jump in the shower. (more…)
How are you doing folks? I hope everything is okey out there and your daily lives are doing wonderful. I am doing fine so far except that I am just too busy. Thanks God, I can still breath and see the awesomeness of this beautiful planet.

It is my off day today but it seems that it is not enough to finish many tasks especially the offline ones. When I mean offline jobs, it means doing laundry, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, cleaning the dishes, dusting, running errands to the bank and other appointments. What else folks? I also love spending time in the garden. (more…)
It has been a year since I started working. In fact, this week marked my one year anniversary of going back to workland. After almost 8 years of partially living like a nomadic life, I am back to reality now. Yes, I am a digital nomad and I cannot deny that. How I really miss my travels during those years. I wish, I can bring it back again. (more…)
Finally the house that was empty next door was finally sold. I believed the new owner had a great deal when buying it. The previous owner already moved to the United States of America and since the house was still in mortgage at the bank, she wanted to sell the house to fully pay the loan.
After some months of posting “house for sale” in front of it, it finally found its buyer. A Hungarian couple bought it some months ago. There were some things that need to be repaired in the house. After it was done with the major renovations and repairs, the couple finally decided to move-in. (more…)
It seems like yesterday when I had my 2 weeks holiday. Those were wonderful days in Turkey and Greece. It was quite a cheap holiday package with almost everything included on it. That one week trip to Turkey visiting different places was truly awesome. A one week cruise in Greece visiting its beautiful islands like Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Symi, Agios Nikolaus, Chios and Rhodes was also a wonderful experience.
Since I still have around 2 weeks vacation left for 2015, I am already window shopping for the next holiday. I already found a package holiday in Southeast Asia but sad to say, the dates were already taken. This means that some colleagues at work had already planned their leaves during those dates. (more…)
