For the first time ever both my teenage son AND daughter have a latest “must have” item of clothing. An all-in-one jumpsuit that has appeared at several parties recently and been swapped around between the boys and the girls. They all want to wear them to the festivals. I can see why. You could wander around in it all day and night – you wouldn’t need to take it off for any reason whatsoever (it’s got zips in all the right places), you could sleep in it, probably even fit another person in it if you wanted to, without anybody noticing.

On the (very cool) website Onepiece.co.uk it has been described as “all about chill out – enjoy a chill out garment you will love more than your mother”. Well, that’s not difficult – sometimes I think my children love dog poo more than their mother.

My son was SO desperate for one he pleaded with me to send an email asking for a sample that I could then blog about. The lovely owner of the company obliged by sending me three to try out – he told me that his dad wears his all the time for gardening – I’m not sure my children (or my friends) would ever speak to me again if I actually wore mine in public, but it was most certainly lovely quality and unbelievably comfortable to wear. They would be fantastic for long plane journey’s though – it’s just like wearing a giant BabyGro….

Adult Onesies | Footed Pajamas & Footie Pajamas for Adults

Wed, 08 Dec 2010 19:15:04 GMT

You probably remember footed pajamas made for adults. They were all the rage back in the mid 1970s but as time passed, the craze faded away. But now they are back and more popular than ever! Today's adult footed pajamas are flying off shelves everywhere and they are being offered in a wide variety of sizes and styles to appeal to all ages.

These throw-back PJ's are now being made from fleece and soft cotton. Some come with hoods and drop seats and others feature college designs with front shoulder pockets perfect for smartphones and personal audio players. Regardless if you want to return to your childhood or just sleep somewhere where it is very cold, the footsie pajamas offer you a level of comfort no other pajamas can and they are once again taking the world by storm.

While many people consider footed pajamas just for kids, the fact is that kids from six to sixty enjoy wearing these incredibly comfortable PJ's. Footed pajamas are by far the coziest and warmest pajamas available today so consider buying a pair so you too can warm up and save on your heating bill while having fun. There really is nothing that can compare to slipping into a pair of soft, warm fleece pajamas with feet on a cold winter evening.

Many families today are buying matching footie pajamas for the entire clan. Some skeptics out there may call this corny but most people simply say that it is quaint. There are even footed baby pajamas available so the even the youngest member of your family will not feel left out! There is no need to buy everyone slippers and who needs a bathrobe when everyone has footed pajamas? Because the foot of the pajamas is attached to the leg, warm air stays inside and cold air cannot get in which means you will stay nice and warm no matter how chilly your home may be.

Today's footed pajamas feature skid-resistant soles on the bottoms. This makes this type of pajamas perfect for wearing on hardwood or linoleum floors. The soles of these PJ's also protect your feet from scrapes and cuts which are quite easy to get when you walk around barefooted at home.

Join the latest pajama fad and get in on the fun! Why not pick up a pair of footed PJ's for everyone in the family so that you all can benefit from the most comfortable pajamas on earth?!

Compact digital travel photography: colour and angles

Fri, 16 Jul 2010 12:48:09 GMT

Maintain your photographic integrity and try to produce an image where the colour is as you have seen it. But do take advantage of factors such as weather conditions: with clearing skies after rain, for example, the atmosphere has been cleansed and colours will appear more vivid. Some years ago, I took a photograph of a field of violet-coloured linseed next to a vast swathe of oilseed rape; two complementary colours that pulsated at the point of contact. A departing heavy black cloud hung above this brilliantly sunlit scene, emphasising the colour, and yet there has not been a soul who has not asked me whether I ?fiddled? with the colour. Look out for splashes of colour against a muted background. Remember Nicolas Roeg?s powerful use of red in his film Don?t Look Now and Spielberg?s child in a red mac in Schindler?s List. A yellow umbrella against a blue wall or the burgundy of a Buddhist monk?s robes against green will present a striking combination. Conversely, you may be attracted to a chaotic kaleidoscope of colour at a seaside fairground. Any composition requires an understanding of light, form, balance and design; it should also entail a quick analysis of the way the colours can be made to work or conflict with one another. All of these considerations need to be weighed in a fleeting moment; such is the thrilling and tantalising nature of photography. So have your compact camera accessible within seconds of recognition that there is a photograph to be ?gifted? to you. As Pasteur said (a quotation adopted by the mighty Ansel Adams): ?Chance favours the prepared mind.?With the exception, perhaps, of the sea?s immaculate horizon and the need to ensure that rivers do not appear to be going uphill, it is perfectly acceptable to twist and skew the camera to produce an image that delivers pleasing geometric shapes, especially in an urban setting. Try to ensure that any strong diagonals depart from the frame through the easiest exit point: the corners. Equally, any rhythmical or sinuous lines within the scene, such as a river, seashore or Tuscan strada bianca, seem to prefer not to be slammed up against the edge of the image as they leave; gently nudge them toward a corner. Be nosy with your camera and push open doors into courtyards with an apology at the ready. If you are rewarded with a set of beautifully lit arches, consider making their vertical lines converge by photographing from a low angle. Look out for reflections; perhaps look again at that wonderful arc of a boat?s bow where it meets translucent water and where it seems to hang within that fusion of reality and reflection. In cities, experiment with buildings seen second-hand through the reflection in the bonnet of a parked car. With the excellent macro facilities of today?s compacts, look at textures: sections of elaborately carved doors and windows. Look at parts of sculptures as well as the whole and enjoy the phenomenon that many a photographer seems to crave: decay. One of the joys of photography is the element of surprise; within a few yards of where you are standing, there can be a photograph awaiting discovery. Digital photography: lesson one - choosing your subjectDigital photography: lesson two - composition Travelling Light, a new DVD about photography with a compact camera, presented by Charlie Waite, is now available.

Learn More About Your Cheap Holidays To Cairo

Sun, 16 May 2010 16:15:21 GMT

The weather is always beautiful. The sun is hot and the heat is very warm. If you plan to be outside seeing the attractions during your cheap holidays to Cairo, you should include a hat on your packing list. Sunglasses are also a good idea. At times, you might even consider soaking a towel in cold water to keep cool outside. It does get a little overbearing when the sun is beating down on you. The nice thing is that there are museums and inside attractions to see that will break up the day so you are outside for a while and then inside out of the sun.

Many former visitors as well as the locals in Cairo will tell you to drink bottled water when you leave your hotel. Most of the hotels have filtered water, but when you venture outdoors, you need to drink bottled water for your own safety. Some people will feel sick and uncomfortable if they drink water that is not pure or filtered. If you happen to be a smoker, you can smoke in public, but if you need cigarettes, Cairo has a limited amount to choose from if you are in need.

If your cheap holidays to Cairo include any driving, you need to know that that traffic is a bit thick at times. People do have their own standards for driving, which can cause a visitor some confusion. Public transportation is everywhere and it may be wise to use that instead of fighting the traffic. If you are unaware of the Moslem culture, remember that woman must dress in a way that does not disrespect the culture. This is more important for women than it is for men. Unbelievably, Cairo is hot, but you should not wear shorts or low cut tops.

When you plan your cheap holidays to Cairo, it is always nice to know a little bit about the area as well as what the attractions are before you go. Some people will travel to Cairo and find out that what they have packed for the trip is not acceptable in this particular area. It sounds strange, but the even though it is a tourist city, people still expect women to dress accordingly. If you stay at some of the resorts and hotels, shorts and swimsuits are acceptable, but if you leave the premises, you should change your clothes and dress to meet the culture standards.

If you need to learn more about your cheap holidays to Cairo, you can research the culture and city more before leaving. It is a very nice place to visit with so many wonderful attractions, but you need to follow customs and traditions. One thing to remember is that during the winter months, the outside is warm, but inside the hotels is cold. They keep the building cold at night for better sleeping. As long as you keep these few points in mind, you will have a great time in Cairo any time of the year.

Algarve in Portugal

Sat, 15 May 2010 01:35:44 GMT

The Algave is situated right in the south of Portugal. It runs across the bottom of the country and is known for its lovely beaches and temperate climate. With superb all year round temperetures there is loads of activities to keep the whole family busy. http://ping.fm/f4Jc8

With plenty of quality acccommodation, beautiful beaches and attractions for the younger ones the Alagarve really does have it all.Where to stay is a big choice as there are so a lot of Algarve hotels to select from. Hotels in The Algarve range from low-priced and cheerful places to spend as little time as possible, or lavishly classy suites in Algarve hotels that offer the very best that money can buy. If all you would like to do is change clothes and grab a couple of hours sleep between the bar closing and the sun rising, then you’ll find many hotels in the Algarve where basic necessity comes at an affordable price.

Then again if you want to be pampered at an exclusive spa based resort, then there are a number of hotels in the Algarve that will offer you exactly what you’re looking for alsoIf you have younger kids or prefer not to be in a shop window all day an apartment may well be a better option Apartments in the Algarve are a good substitute to hotels if you don’t mind having to make your breakfast each morning. You may find that renting an apartment saves you money, but make sure you ask about concealed costs for things such as cleaning and insurance. http://ping.fm/DFTDg
http://ping.fm/u2Z7L

There beaches in the Algarve offer good opportunities for water sports – if you’ve never snorkelled before, now could be your big opportunity! If exploring the past is more your thing then you shouldn’t ignore out a trip to Faro, The capital of the Algarve, make sure if you see nothiong else you visit the old church Nossa Senhora do Carma, this church is superb with some of the best gold leaf in europe.

ZooMarine and Lagos Zoo are two good places to take children. ZooMarine offers the best value for money as this is not only a zoo but also a theme park. Your children will learn a good deal about such animals as sea lions and dolphins as they examine their antics.

A serious consideration should be given to visiting the Capital of Portugal, Lisbon. although around 3-4 hours train ride away it is well worth a visit and the countryside is breathtaking on the trip and something you wouldnt normally see. http://ping.fm/XMHhD

It offers you the opportunity to experience a beach holiday without the party environment of islands such as Ibiza. If you’re looking for more serene holiday that allows you to relax in stunning surroundings, The Algarve is a great choice.
