In a constant search for a perfect combination of comfort and style, fashion has been diving into the world of streetwear, looking for inspiration, as well as new ways of expression through clothes and footwear.

The choice of light fixtures is incredibly important for the overall style of any room, whether it’s in a residence or a business place. While illumination is crucial for the functionality of the space, the truth is that lighting is even more purposeful, especially in terms of style – and this refers not only to the designs of the light fixtures you choose but also the light itself.

When you happen to be in a long term relationship, it's quite normal for a couple's sex life to reach a low point or get stuck in a rut. Even the most ardent couples experience sexual lulls. The early phases of a relationship, when you can't keep your hands off each other, are fueled by strong chemical forces in the brain. However, that chemical bath does not last forever, and as the high wears off, some couples discover that they must make efforts to spice up their once-passionate sex life.

When it comes to celebration, what beverage comes to your mind? Probably sparkling wine. Everything from New Year's celebrations and proms to weddings, birthdays and romantic evenings out, there is no better way to be more romantic or celebratory than opening a bottle of bubbly. Just make sure you don't call it "Champagne" just because it sparkles. Many don't know, but the only sparkling wine in the world that can be labelled "champagne" are those made in the region of France.

Tennis balls have come a long way since they were invented, a long, long time ago, in the e12th century, for a game played at that time in France. This game was originally called “Jeu de Paume”, which translates to “game of the palm”, because it was played with hands, and nowadays in English, it’s referred to as real tennis. In different countries, they used different materials to make the balls for the predecessors of today’s tennis, which went through a series of changes, and it wasn’t until 1882 that the tennis ball was perfected by Walter Clopton Wingfield, and it took almost a century for the ball to get the colour we now know and love.

So, if you're planning a bath redo, a new basin sink is a stylish, affordable and quick update. For something we often take for granted, wash hand basins offer a lot in terms of functionality and decor.

Anyone who has modern home décor has felt its significance. But what about your yard, the only constant contact with the outdoors since the start of this pandemic? The lack of time spent outdoors has reminded us that we need to go back to our roots. On...
