6 Things You Must Check On Your Car Before A Road Trip

>> Jun 27, 2017

Leave the daily grind behind and enjoy the summer holiday! Once you’ve decided on a destination and chose the best crowd, you need to make sure that everything goes as planned. There are many ways you can go about traveling but I prefer a car as it makes me feel independent and a boss of my schedule. If you feel the same way, make sure there are no surprises on the road and check traffic and weather alerts. Most importantly, make sure your car does not give you any surprises so here’s a checklist to get you going smoothly.

Check the fluids

Do you like being thirsty? No? Well, same goes for your car. Make sure you top-up everything before you leave. If your oil-change is soon to be due, choose to do it before your trip, rather than after. Don’t think of wiper fluid as a less important one, don’t let yourself be surprised by the weather. Also, inspect all systems to ensure there are no leaks.

Check the tires and brakes

Make sure your car is kept down to earth by a good set of tires. Check that your tread is sufficient and that the tires are well aligned. If it’s possible, confirm that there aren’t any cracks that could become holes. Finally, have them all inflated properly and don’t forget to do the same for the spare tire. When it comes to brakes, you’ve already checked the brake fluid, now just make sure that all of the parts are in good shape.

Check the lights

Good visibility is a key to avoiding accidents. Make sure all the lights are working properly (headlights, taillights, turn signals and brakes). Have them either cleaned or replaced altogether. I took advice from a local mechanic in Epping so I test the headlights by facing my garage door. That way I can see if they are getting dim (if they are reflecting well enough) and how they are positioned. I suggest you do the same thing. You can turn around to test the taillights, too.

Check the battery

What use is there of a good car if it won’t start? Make sure to check the battery prior to setting off on your road trip. You can’t always rely on your car giving you signs of a battery dying, make a small trip to your mechanic and have them test it for you. Don’t forget your jumper cables!

Check the air-conditioning and the cooling system

Keep it cool! Bear in mind that you are going on a summer holiday.  You are going to regret ever leaving your house and start hating your fellow holiday-makers if you happen to be stuck with them in the insufferable heat for hours. You can’t scroll your windows down on a highway so make sure your AC is working properly. Also, pay attention to your car’s water pump and radiator as it needs to be able to cool off to avoid overheating.

Check the bottom of the list

Now for those things that are the easiest to be forgotten. Take basic tools and warning equipment with you in case you are required (and capable) to do any emergency repairs, e.g. replacing a flat tire. Pack up a reflecting triangle to indicate to other drivers that you are parked on the road (while replacing your flat tire). Anything else that you may find handy such as a flashlight, Swiss knife, blanket etc. is also welcome. Remember to fill your glow compartment with useful paperwork such as your insurance policy, warranty, emergency phone numbers etc.

Lastly, listen to your car (and my checklist). Do not ignore any of the lights that may appear on the dashboard as it is an obvious sign of something needing to be looked at. If you do this and follow the checklist your getting-there really will be half the fun! 


Home Repairs You Could Do On Your Own

DIY Projects are truly taking over the internet by storm. Besides taking the opportunity to showcase their craftsmanship skills and creating innovative and unique items for everyone’s convenience, DIY projects are also a great way to make a profit as many turn to the internet as an agent for selling their crafts online. Also, DIY projects are a great outlet for those who wish to brainstorm for new ideas and unique creations.

Another thing about DIY projects is not only the fact that you can elect to sell your work online, they help you save a lot of money as well. Even in the comfort of your own home, things around you can still break or malfunction to some degree. Instead of spending money on repairmen, why not repair them yourself? It may be a bit difficult at times, but once you get the hang of it, there’s nothing in your home that you can’t fix.

If you’re wondering of any home repairs you can do on your own, here are some of them:

1.   Unclogging Drains

This is the most common of all home repairs. This is actually so easy that you actually only need one tool: a plunger.

Numerous times throughout the day, the bathroom becomes a private retreat for many. It’s the one place in your home that you can be alone with your thoughts and take care of personal business, all at the same time. When clogging happens, though, it causes a huge amount of inconvenience to anyone living in the house.

For this, as mentioned before, a plunger is all you’ll need. Just direct the suction cup of the plunger to the drain that needs to be unclogged and just keep pumping until you hear the sweet sound of a flush. Also, in case this doesn’t work, you’d be surprised in how much help baking soda and warm water can give you.

2.   Patching Up Leaks

Another common form of DIY repairs that you could do on your own. If you thought clogged drains are a pain, there’s nothing like the inconvenience of a leaking pipe.

When pipes leak, a lot of things can happen. Your floor may be filled with water, causing it to become slippery and can also lead to numerous accidents. This is especially during the rainy season, in which leaks can spread to all parts of your home.

For this, just grab a can of sealant and place it on the spot where the leak protrudes from. If ever you’re using anything other than sealant (i.e Duct Tape), make sure that they are wrapped tight around the leak in order to avoid any more water dripping out of it.

3.   Replacing a Light Switch

Your home needs all the light it can get to give it that cozy glow. Whether it be natural or electrical, light is an essential element to every home in the world.

When your light bulbs burn out, it can be a bit inconvenient for you, especially during the night. Luckily for you, they’re pretty easy to replace. Just twist the bulb to the left and pull it out. You may want to be careful though as leaving the electricity on while you do this can be disastrous on your end. Also, make sure to never drop them. You wouldn’t want broken glass littered around your floor.

How the Right Diet can Aid Faster Weight Loss

>> Jun 23, 2017

If you would like to lose weight faster or losing weight is an ongoing battle, conventional ideas such as eating as little as you can and running for miles may be fruitless. Exercising endlessly and ignoring prickling hunger pangs is unlikely to work on a long-term basis.

Conventional weight loss ideas can diminish your willpower and waste the time that you would be using on a weight loss plan that is customized for your individual needs. The right diet will prevent you from giving up and yield results in record time.

Maintaining Weight Loss

Losing weight and keeping it off constitutes changing your habits. If you manage to lose weight and resume the lifestyle habits that made you gain weight, you can expect excess weight to return. After the delight of fast weight loss, the next major step is to maintain the loss through long-term changes and dedication.

Long-term weight loss is possible when you implement a diet that helps you lose weight within a month and eventually get rid of excess weight. This type of diet prioritizes progress during the first weeks and developing new healthy and fun habits makes it easier each week.

Finding the Right Diet

For people who want to make a refreshing start and find ways to eat and exercise that work for them and fit in with their lifestyle, a diet that is based on scientific principles and tailored to their body’s systems is the best option.

The next diet that you try should keep your motivation levels high through fast results that prevent you from losing interest in the weight loss plan. It should promote a suitable approach to lifestyle changes that consist of eating nutritious food, including meals you enjoy, moderate consumption and working out regularly.

Faster Results

  • Anyone who is working on weight loss wants to see results as soon as possible. These results need to last and healthy options include the 3 week diet that makes it possible to lose weight and be energetic in less than a month. You can lose several pounds safely each week with an effective diet and the additional benefit of exercise.
  • A weight loss program aims to help you reduce fat, increase energy and become healthier. Focus on incorporating a diet that guarantees weight loss and enables you to lose weight and body fat faster than you have before.
  • Many people do not have the time or patience to wait for body fat loss, reduce cellulite or to fit in the wedding dress of their dreams. They need a diet that understands the science of how people gain or lose weight and what it takes to get rid of body fat.


The body requires specific nutrients that facilitate weight loss, boost metabolism, improve health and increase energy. A specially formulated diet serves as a manual or guide to help you lose weight fast enough to show off your new lean body at your next event. With a weight loss plan that is personalized for your body type, you will be able to determine what you should eat each day, the portions as well as when you should eat.
