Fashion Pieces I am loving this spring

This spring has been unusually warm. We have had little or no rain these last few weeks, and since we are usually indoors thanks to the lockdown, I am only comfortable in light airy clothes. I have been busy doing some online shopping. The kiddies needed a few fashion items for home, so I took the golden opportunity to get some spring items for myself. I have literally been living in short, skirts, light spring trousers  and dresses. Anything else leaves me way too warm.

Here are some of the fashion pieces I am loving this spring –

Product Review: Tea Tree Essential Oil

*Affiliate link.

I am now an essential oil guru. There are so many bottles of essential oils in my house so expect many blog posts on them. My recent addition to my essential oils collection is this Tea Tree Oil by Tisserand. I have used this essential oil many times, it is so good. It can be used in many different ways. I use this oil on my hair, it also helps me when I have a blocked nose, a few drops on my pillow and I have a good night sleep. I have also used it to get rid of little ants and bugs around the house. If you need to try one essential oil this summer, I would strongly recommend you try Tea Tree Essential Oil.

Brief history

Possibly one of the most renowned herbal treatments throughout the world, pungent Tea Tree is ideal for use in soothing and healing a plethora of ailments. It is thought that Tea Tree gained its modern name from English explorer Cpt James Cook, whose crew drank infusions of the plant to treat scurvy.

Hailing from Australia, indigenous aboriginal people have used Tea Tree for centuries to treat coughs, colds, fevers and headaches with its medicinal properties.

Ingredients

100% Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) leaf oil

PROS
  1. This essential oil is Vegan and Cruelty free. Tisserand Aromatherapy products and ingredients are not tested on animals.
  2. This oil contains no parabens, synthetic fragrances or SLES/SLS.
  3. I add a few drops of this oil into my hair spray product. It helps keep my hair healthy and moisturised. It also helps my hair grow like weed.
  4. A few drops of this help get rid of ants and bugs. I sprinkle a few drops in affected areas and the ants disappear.
  5. Tea Tree Oil blends easily with other oils.
  6. It is great for supporting the body during winter months. It helps in the treatment of colds, coughs and headaches.
  7. A few drops of Tea Tree in your shampoo will help relieve your scalp from itch and dandruff.
  8. You can also use this essential oil in a diffuser or oil burner or in a homemade blend (with a carrier oil) to use as a facial treatment, body oil or bath oil.
CONS
  1. I am not a huge fan of the smell but for the amazing benefits, I will cope with it.

What You Should Consider Before Buying A Used Car

*Collaborative post.

There is one clear reason why people will purchase a used car: because it’s cheaper than a new one. If you’re working to a tight budget then you appreciate the need to save a little money wherever possible. Buying a used mercedes benz, for example, doesn’t mean you are buying a poor quality vehicle. Many used cars have durable engines, that still run efficiently years after purchase. Before you head out to buy a used car you should consider the following:

Think About Your Budget

You need to determine a range of cost before you even get started. How much are you willing to spend and how much can you afford. It’s a good idea to also have an idea of how the transaction will be financed. Did you save before you shop? Will you finance through a dealership? Are you using a loan? Etc.

It’s Essential for You To Test Drive The Car

You should always test drive any car you might buy. Spend some decent time behind the wheel of the car you are considering. It eagles you to gather an idea of how the car responds to you as the new driver. Ask for the test drive to include the motorway, a side street, and areas where you need to make sharp corners and hill stops. You will be able to identify any possible problems and address these if needed.

Research The Car

The internet is really your best friend when shopping for a used car. You can find all the information that you need about a model of a car before you commit to a purchase or even arrange a viewing. Make sure you are looking at the right model first though, speak to the seller of the car and ask them for the exact model and explain you are researching the model first.

What Are Your Requirements?

You need to consider what care is best suited to you and your needs. Your inner child may head straight towards the sports cars, but your family could really do with an SUV. You need to make sure that the car you are purchasing really fits in with your lifestyle and your needs.

Check Out The Vehicle History

Reviewing the vehicles history report is vitally important for you securing a car that you know has been looked after. The car you buy should have a solid history, this is because every used car has a story and it can’t be ignored. In a perfect world, a used car will have all it’s service and repair history but this isn’t the case, so make sure you ask questions if it can’t be seen.

Look At Some Reviews

Before you buy, have a look at some reviews available online. There are numerous auto-related websites that have different reviews for different models. They’re often aimed at consumers, so these reviews are definitely worth checking out.

Complete The Purchase

This is more than just shaking hand. You need to ensure that all the paperwork is in order. This includes the car ownership slip ( you will receive the logbook later), the service history, any warranties, and a receipt. You may, at this point, be a little stressed and tired of the process, but it’s important for you to be alert and not rush to get things finished.

A used car is an affordable option for many. The closer it fits your needs to more use you will get from it, so make sure you take the time to follow the advice above. Is there anything that you’re looking for in your next car? Please share them in the comments below.
