This Beldray Quick Vac Lite is great for floor to ceiling cleaning. I have used this gadget many times in our home now and I really like it. It is a lighter alternative to vacuuming as it is very lightweight which makes it easier to manoeuvre. I like how easy it is to carry around the house. I usually struggle with our good old vacuum as we live in a town house, so lots of stairs  This Quick Vac Lite by Beldray is great for houses like ours as the lightweight allows you vacuum the house form top to bottom. The 5 metre cord also allows you take it from room to room a lot easier.

It is suitable for both hard floors and carpets, and the vacuum also has a washable filter and cyclonic technology which provides a smoother and faster cleaning experience. I love it and I can see myself using it a lot thanks to the ease of using it and the great suction power.

The ultimate colour guide for your home decor

*Collaborative post.

 Is your home looking a bit drab and dreary? If so, you might want to consider changing up the colour scheme to brighten up and bring some life back into your living space. Choosing colours for your interior can be a difficult job, as you need to make sure you pick the right shades to maximise and enhance the look of your home.

To enable you to select the right colour palettes, you should take a look at this guide which will make the decorating process much easier.

 

Neutral shades

One of the most popular interior palettes is definitely neutral shades like white, beige, ivory, nude, grey and more, which are popularly used in plenty of modern spaces. These colours can be used to decorate the whole room, or as base layers to compliment brighter shades. You can use variations of these colours in any room of your home, although the living room and dining room are more synonymous with these shades, as these areas of the house are seen as neutral ground.

Property companies like RW Invest have embraced the all-natural look in their offerings by using light-coloured neutrals like white and ivory to create contemporary style apartments. These attract a wide range of tenants, although they are especially popular with young professionals who prefer modern and airy city-centre apartments.

 

 

 

Pastel palettes

If you want to lighten up your space, especially now the summer months are in play, you should take a look at soft some pastel colours. This could include hues of baby blue, light pink, peach, lime and more. You could start small by introducing pastel-coloured cushions or ornaments, which will add character to any room in your home.

Pastel shades work well in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, where you can update your neutral-style cabinets with blue and green hues. This is not only a great way to enhance your property but is also a much more eco-friendly solution, as you can avoid throwing out a good piece of furniture. By using the colours, you can also make even the smallest kitchen look spacious, which is every homeowner’s dream. This is also a great way to update a more traditional style kitchen, as the lighter palettes will create a more modern feel.

Bold hues

 If you really want to brighten up your home, you should go bold with shades of purple, yellow, or even red. These colours are perfect for rented apartments which tend to look like show homes, as adding a brighter shade will make your home more personalised. Some landlords do not allow walls to be painted, so if this is the case, you can purchase furnishings and ornaments that will enhance even the most drab-looking room.

Using a bright colour like yellow may seem daring and should not be used in just any room, as it can appear overpowering.Yellow works well in a breakfast room, where you can start your day on a high with striking decor. Try to avoid using this colour in the bedroom, as this an energising colour which may work well in the morning but not so good at night when you need a good night’s rest.

Importance of contact lens hygiene and care

*Collaborative post.

If you don’t follow your doctor’s recommendations about lens care, you could be damaging your eyes.

Without the right methods and hygiene, you could end up with a blurred vision, redness, itchiness, loss of vision, corneal abrasions or a fatal infection.

Now while these are extreme cases, you need to know what can happen if you don’t care for your lenses properly.

 

  1. Acanthamoeba keratitis

This parasitic infection was first discovered in 1973. Usually found in pools, hot tubs, tap water and contact lens solution, this parasite can infect anyone who comes in contact with it. Their perfect breeding ground is the space between the contact lens and the eyes. Once they latch on, they can burrow down into the cornea and destroy your vision. To avoid this from happening, do not keep your contacts in for longer than necessary. Take them off before you shower, swim or get into a hot tub. And, never ever wash your contacts with plain tap water.

2. Bacterial keratitis

This is a grave bacterial infection of the cornea and can destroy your vision in little less than 24 hours. Because it progresses so rapidly, this is a serious problem with contact lens wearers. The risk increases when you wear your lenses overnight or do not use enough lens solution to disinfect the lenses. Superficial keratitis can happen at the top layers leaving no scar but deep keratitis can leave scars in your cornea.

3. Fungal keratitis

An infection caused by any of the 70 fungi, fungal keratitis grows from the cornea into the sclera causing infections that are extremely difficult to treat. This can lead to vision loss and even loss of the eye. This can happen when the eye is injured and can be accelerated by improper lens care.

Now that you know how serious it can get, let’s get into the right care for your lenses:

  1. Wash your hands: Always wash your hands before and after handling lenses
  2. Use a lint-free towel: To avoid getting any foreign particles from getting into your eyes, you should always use a lint-free towel.
  3. Don’t go to sleep wearing your lenses: Avoid doing this at all costs. Not only can your lenses get stuck behind your eye, but you are also at risk for infections.
  4. Colored contacts without prescription: Don’t buy colored contacts without a prescription. They are medical devices just as much as your corrective lenses and the wrong fit can scratch your cornea. If you are looking for good colored contacts, try hidrocor quartzo from the solotica lenses usa collection.
  5. Do not use powder based makeup: Anything that can fly into your eye can cause an infection. Avoid powder-based makeup and try to use hypoallergenic makeup that is specially made for contact lens wearers
  6. Do not top off your lens solution: If you have a little bit left in your lens solution bottle, do not try and top it off. It already has bacteria build up in it and by topping it off, you are only going to keep using contaminated lens solution.
  7. Throw out your lens case: Every 3 months, you should replace your lens case to avoid any build up.
