Best Activity Trackers 2017

Fitness trackers have become a necessity to everyone who likes being active. Exercise, running, swimming… Whatever you do to keep fit and feel happy, you might have considered buying this gadget at some point. Or perhaps, you have already got one.

I still haven’t purchased my activity tracker, to be honest with you, and use a mobile app instead – Sports Tracker which is pretty awesome. But I think a wristband or a smaller device would be a great deal, as having my phone with me at all times is not always an option.

OK, time to share something useful with you. ReviewsBee is a platform that creates top-10 lists based on a deep algorithm research. Its team have prepared a list of the top 10 activity trackers for this year. Also, they were most kind to provide me with an infographic to share with you. It will give you a flavour of what activity trackers are and how they can help you enjoy physical activity.

The magic and beauty of postcards Paperless Post

The Magic and Beauty of Postcards

A woman’s world is full of beauty. We women are truly blessed because of our subtle sense of charm and magic. From a glamorous wedding dress to a cheap teacup you have just bought from a charity shop – everything could be beautiful and beauty is everywhere. Other examples? The list could be endless but what about postcards or special occasion invitations?

When I came to London, one of the things that amazed me (among many other things, of course) was the abundance of postcard shops and I don’t mean the souvenir shops for tourists. It was obvious that the British had preserved the good old tradition of sending and receiving postcards. To a great extent, this has been lost in my own country and replaced by text messages, social media posts, etc. Impersonal and not so touching, don’t you think? What has happened to the magic of a sealed envelope that is to be opened with excitement?

Trouble Next Door, book review by SimplyMarina

Trouble Next Door by Chris Higgins

This is the story of two siblings and their new friend, an amiable cute girl. Or? Actually, this is the story of two siblings and… a real trouble. Trouble Next Door is a brilliant story for kids aged 5 to 7 (I would say 7+, too) that will help them learn a bit more about friendship and how complicated it could be.

Bella’s family have just moved house and already Bella has a new best friend – Magda, who lives next door. Magda thinks climbing the chimney would be fun! Bella isn’t sure that’s a good idea. She might get into trouble. But Magda would never let Bella take the blame… would she?
