Few necessary baby items which you can buy used – Advice for a thrift mom

New Post

Regardless of whether you’re busy for your baby registry, there will arise a time in your life when you might go broke buying things for your little bundle of joy. With the increasing costs of baby gear and the diminishing wages of their parents, being able to cater to all the needs of your baby is gradually getting tougher with time. Did you know that there are few things that your baby needs and that can be bought used? If you’re someone who is totally against using second-hand things especially for your baby, you should let go of this mental block if you don’t want to go broke. 

When you’re a mother of 2 or 3 babies, there are times when you may have to buy used items. So, which are the things for your baby that you can get used? Here are few such products that you should keep in mind to stay within your budget. 

#1: Bathtub

As we know that babies outgrow their bathtubs very soon and bathtubs are things that are used for a very short span of time. Hence, Cindy Leclerc, a nurse and lactation consultant says that it is best to buy a bathtub used so that you can save your hard-earned dollars. You can raid the second-hand market to buy a nice used bathtub for your kid which you too are going to keep away once your baby grows older. 

#2: Baby bouncers

Baby bouncers also tend to attract your babies as long as they’ve not set out for their crawling adventures. Most parents who have bought new bouncers have later on repented that they should have got them used ones. Initially your baby will love the feel of the bouncer as it bounces and rocks them to sleep but as soon as your baby will set out for crawl-based adventures, the bouncer will instantly become a thing of past for him. Hence, there’s no point in investing hefty amount on this. 

#3: Bumbo

As long as buying used things are concerned for your babies, you should definitely get a used bumbo. Apart from toothbrushes and underwear, the Bumbo seat which is available at $40 can be just used for 3 months. Hence, it is better to get them used so that you don’t waste them when your child grows up. 

#4: Diaper bags

If you visit Amazon or eBay, you will get diaper bags for sale, the used ones which are given away at attractive discounts and rebates. If you choose to get designer diaper bags, you can get them at a price which is much lower than a new diaper bag. There are times when you have to think beyond cuteness and their handsfree style is extremely helpful. 

Therefore, whenever you’re trying not to go broker with buying your kids all those unnecessary and unimportant things, you should consider buying things the used way. Get used things and save your precious dollars rather than spending them on buying new things for your toddler.

The Secrets of Successful Hair Removal

services-laserhair-top

Is it possible to remove body hair from every part of the body?  Today more and more people are looking for new ways to remove hair from parts of our bodies that we never considered before.  Nowadays we remove hair from our faces, necks, chests and backs and all the way south to our toes. Is this safe to do? Absolutely!  Most of the time it’s also very successful as well. Depending on where you are removing hair from it might be a good idea to get professional help, but full body hair removal is a reality for many people.  

An expensive but effective option:

One of the most long lasting and successful ways of removing facial and body hair is through Laser Hair Removal.  You can get it done at a salon if you can afford it but if your budget is a little more limited you can buy a DIY device to use at home.  It removes hair faster than other permanent hair removal systems like electrolysis because it targets more than one hair at a time. Laser Hair Removal will permanently lighten, reduce and remove your body hair ensuring your skin is soft, smooth and hair free for good.

These are wonderful benefits but they come at a cost.  Salon Laser Hair Removal at a salon will cost a few thousand US$ while a home laser device is a few hundred.  

Whether you chose to go to a professional or do it yourself it will take several treatments to complete each area.  The reason for this is because you need to target each hair when it’s in its growth phase, which will happen at different times.      

More cost effective, but not as long lasting:

The most effective of the temporary removal options is waxing.  It appears to be cheaper than laser but you have to do it every few weeks.  Some people also say that it hurts quite a bit too. Waxing works by applying a layer of hot wax to the skin where you want to remove the hair.  

The wax is left to harden for a few seconds and then quickly pulled off.  This pulls the hair out by the root leaving your hair smooth and hair free for a few weeks.  You can either visit a salon for your wax treatments, or you can easily do it yourself at home by yourself with a home waxing kit.  

So, which is the best option?  It really is up to the individual.  If you are able to undergo laser treatment it will be the most cost effective and efficient method in the long run.  However, if budget is a factor and you don’t mind a little bit of pain then waxing is a great option.

Today, we will look into a few fashion secrets from celebrities that you can implement in 2019 to revolutionize your wardrobe.

Unconventional Prints

Nyle Demarco recently solidified his position as one of the most stylish men in Hollywood. One of his recent looks that stood out was his unconventional use of prints. The trick is to first find a print that resonates with you then make use of it in an unconventional way. Use these prints on garments that they are not traditionally used on.

Designer Handbags

Louis Vuitton’s are by no means cheap and they’re out of the price range for the vast majority of us. A good way to own authentic designer handbags without breaking the bank would be to purchase a pre-owned Louis Vuitton bag from reputable retailers.

Unique Design Elements

Here is another tip from Nyle Demarco, pair up ordinary outfits with extraordinary design elements that are sure to gain attention. You can pair a pretty ordinary slim fit suit with an Asian style “karate belt” of the same colour and design. The most effective elements to use differ from person-to-person based on our ethnic or cultural roots, background and everything in between.

Bold Colors

Every now and then, you need to go against the tide and wear something bold, chic and elegant. Diane Kruger, the actress, and model has shown us just how possible it is to look elegant and daring in bright colours.

Denim, leather jackets, and ankle boots, what do these three items have in common? They have the ability to make you look laid back and fashion forward at the same time.

Gigi Hadid knows this and she frequently uses these items to captivate us all. When this supermodel is not walking down runways in Milan or Paris, she uses casual “Californian glamour” to stay fashionable all the time.

Confidence

If there is one thing that celebrities have in abundance it would be confidence. How else are they able to pull off outfits that’ll look ridiculous on the average fellow?

Has Your Hair Started to Thin?

Image-03

People have become more and more concerned about regenerating hair growth and restoring the looks of their hair. Hair loss and hair thinning affect a large number of people in the world. Therefore, many people with this type of problem look for ways to regenerate growth and enhance the thickness of their hair.

Volumising Your Hair

If you are one of these people, do not despair. You can find programmes online that offer therapies that enhance hair volume growth. Some products even stop the progress of greying hair. If you can find a hair product that can increase your hair’s volume and stop greying, you have found the ideal solution.

For example, a hair restoration product that is used to increase volume typically features liposome-coated molecules. These molecules contain a high amount of essential growth factors. Proteins, minerals, vitamins, and cytokines are also included to rejuvenate the hair. This type of hair growth product provides results in two months. Used as a noninvasive solution, a product, such as PHS Hairscience offers the best hair spa treatment outcome.

Male Pattern Baldness

Your hair may start to thin for one or more reasons. Men’s hair may thin as the result of male pattern baldness, which is genetic. About two out of three men will experience this form of hair loss by the time they reach 60 years old. If you notice that the men in your family have experienced hair loss, your hairline will usually recede, too.

Heredity and hair loss also affect women. Female pattern hair loss is the female version of patterned baldness in men. Again, if you notice female family members who have lost some hair in this way, you will probably experience hair loss and thinning, too.

Are You Under Too Much Stress?

Other reasons for hair loss and thinning include pregnancy or emotional stress. When a woman is pregnant, she experiences hormonal changes when she stops using birth control pills. However, this form of hair loss is usually temporary. You just don’t want to worsen the problem by practicing hair-damaging treatments.

If stress causes hair loss, you need to use a spa treatment as well as review your lifestyle and diet. By making modifications along these lines, you can enjoy lovelier looking hair and feel more in control at work and at home.

Do You Eat Enough Protein?

Sometimes, people experience hair thinning and loss if their diet lacks protein. If you don’t eat enough of this nutrient, your hair growth may stop. Hair growth may be affected about two months after a drop in protein consumptions. To ensure you are getting enough of this nutrient, make sure you eat plenty of fish, eggs, and meat. If you do not want to eat meat, you can find protein-rich sources among vegetables and berries.

Hair loss can also occur by taking too much supplementation. In this case, women and men can experience hair thinning and loss by taking too much vitamin A. Once you stop over-consuming the vitamin, the hair loss will stop and will grow normally. You can still enhance the hair, however, by using a spa treatment that support hair volume and growth.
