The life of modern day people is full of activities as soon as the morning alarm clock goes off. A day full of errands and work related tasks is a guarantee, however no matter how much we’re out and about, we can’t deny we’re all prone to sedentary lifestyles either at the workplace or at home. This is due to the dependency we have of electronics, whether in the form of TV, laptop or tablet. It’s only natural that eventually not staying active enough and rather sitting it out, resulting in getting overweight, would lead to certain health issues, back pain primarily.

So your bathroom lacks natural light and view? Don't worry, you're not alone. Even though lighting and fresh air are incredibly important for bathrooms, this aspect is often-times overlooked. However, designers have many tricks and tips that will easily trick the eye to perceive small, enclosed bathrooms as somewhat more spacious and light spaces where one may relax and feel comfortable.

Lighting Is Of Utmost Importance

In boxed-in bathrooms artificial lighting saves the day! But when you buy bathroom lighting for a space that has no contact with the outside world, besides going really bright, make sure the main light also features a fan that can help manage condensation. Making sure that air can circulate is really important and fans are a good way to achieve it. Also, when you have no access to natural light, the key is to make sure you put artificial lights in all the right places. So, before you actually buy bathroom lighting, you need to create a thorough lightening plan. Make sure you put lights as to be able to properly illuminate the face when standing in front of the mirror, use lots of reflective surfaces to carry the light around and put lights in unconventional light locations such as inside the shower, around the mirror and under the vanity.
I could accept a bad hairstyle day or a pair of jeans that the last time they were trendy was the time when Christina Aguilera wore everything but clothes, but I could never in a million years accept wearing an ugly bag! I mean, going out with the wrong bag for the outfit? I'd feel committing a fashion crime and so incomplete! All the bags I have in my closet are there for a reason: some of them are simple, big and roomy which makes them perfect for my work outfit as in them I can keep my snack, a bottle of water, my wallet, keys and a few cosmetic essentials. Others are tiny and stylish, so I wear them usually when I go out. However, whether I choose a tote, a flap or a shopper bag, I always make sure it's functional, affordable and most importantly - that it reflects my personal style.
