In Vino Veritas

Martin Luther reportedly said that "Beer is made by man, wine by God." Obviously, this was a man who appreciated a nice glass of the grape. I guess ole' Martin wasn't too picky about what he drank; he was a notorious guzzler. You don’t have to be like Martin to enjoy wine; you also don’t have to get a degree in “sniff, swirl, sip” – there is a happy medium. A little knowledge, in this case, goes a long way. There are basically two types of...

You Light Up the Room

Absolutely anything that reaches one of my five senses will affect my state of being. Upbeat music begets an upbeat attitude. Sweet food begets a sweet feeling. Comfortable seating begets comfortable outlook. Warm interior lighting begets a warm mood. I have always been especially sensitive to light, wearing sunglasses when reclined in the dentist’s chair, installing special subdued lighting software on computers, and currently writing by the glow of one single lamp light bulb that...

Zuo Modern Furniture - Contemporary Coolness

The name “Zuo Modern” is almost a redundant phrase; the word “Zuo” already implies contemporary coolness, cutting edge, one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-other sophistication. And Zuo Modern delivers; their “Vive” line offers unusual yet completely urban patio furniture in all-weather wicker, aluminum, and polyethylene faux wood. Zuo Modern’s Vive features sleek, clean, angular lines; trendy neutral colors and a top shelf...

Water you waiting for?

Adding an in-ground pool to your backyard landscaping is not a small decision; you have to consider the costs and how much room you have; you need to decide who you trust to install it and if you really want to take on the responsibility of maintaining it. But while you are thinking about all those things, you should also be thinking about this:  An in-ground swimming pool is one of the best investments in your health you can make! Even none-swimmers can profit from the...

If it Ain’t Baroque, Fix it!

The chair is the single most common fixture in our living spaces. Take mental inventory of your home. Is there a single room without a chair in it? You may even have several accent chairs sprinkled around hallways and bathrooms. The things we truly cannot live without—food and water—are typically limited to one room, the kitchen or pantry, while chairs spill into every crevice of our spaces. What gives?  For thousands of years, chairs were scarce and used as status...

Aunt Bertie’s enormous backside has finally met its match!

There is something to be said for finding out what you do best and doing it. This is the philosophy the Windward Design Group, a patio furniture manufacturer located in Florida. Windward doesn't try to sell substandard goods under a designer label name (yes, it has been done!); they simply carved out a niche for themselves in the patio furniture industry and are occupying it to the best of their ability. What that means for you and me is that we can purchase quality patio furniture with...

Spray Tans: One Girl's Tragedies and Triumphs

I have had spray tan experiences that range from horrific to luxurious, and the differences didn’t lie in the quality of spray tan solution or the price of the technician’s applicator. I can recall the most horrific of experiences like it was five minutes ago. It occurred during my freshman year of college. A spray tan technician set up in the basement of my all-girl dormitory and offered spray tans during the week leading up to a classy-ish social event. Kudos to her...

The Fuss about Fire Glass

Let's face it: those faux wood logs we placed in gas fireplaces weren't really fooling anyone. When it comes to gas fireplaces and fire pits, there is a new and improved kid on the block named Fire Glass. Fire Glass also goes by the names Fire Crystals, Fire Diamonds, Fireplace Glass, Fireglass and more, but the basic technology usually remains the same: fire glass is tempered glass that has been treated to withstand extreme heat so that it does not burn, deteriorate, or give...
