Kids going back to school. Are you ready?


      It’s time for your kids to go back to school. I guess you can dance, have a cocktail and be happy. Do it! We don’t blame you. They need to create their new adventures, and so do you.
Great memories you had with the little ones. The summer heat, the games, the trips, and the good food, all essential for that fun summer stuff. I’m even exhausted just thinking about it. You did good!

   The kids are ready to go back to school, and so are you. In reality, that means you have to go back to a routine. Before you enjoy your last margarita, you have to start planning your days and get back to being organized.

Well here are some tips for you to get back in your game.

Create your label
   1. Label the kids’ stuff. They just got all new things, and they might lose them. Before that happens help them label their stuff with you.

   2.  Remember your calendar or board? Use it. It’s important to write down every event, so everybody is on the same page.

   3. In some schools they use uniforms and some don’t. Either way, don’t forget to run a pile of laundry every day. TIP: Do it after 10pm. Electricity is cheaper at night.

   4. Go back to your chore list. Everybody should have one. Include the 2 year old and Dad 

   5. Plan your meals. Thinking about what you are going to cook every day is too much. Remember saving time is always a plus.
Back to school
   6. Choose a day before they start school to get the kids room cleaned and organized. They will have a fresh start, and will be easy for them to keep their room clean. At least for a couple of weeks.
   7. Follow the tips, but don't forget to smile

 Enjoy the last weekend with the kids and relax

A Chair, known in Spanish as Silla, is a beautiful piece of furniture made out of wood, metal and sometimes cloth. Their unique design has helped complete a room and become a part of the d├ęcor world.

 Chairs became common in the 16th century. Apart from being a specific thing that was created to rest our butts on, the chair turn out to be one of the most used accessories. 

     Women look for a chair that has texture, form and color. With their beauty, chairs have made women feel glamorous and sexy. The type of sexy that you see with Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra. I clearly remember watching the movie and thinking that one day I will be the Cleopatra of my home. 

For men on the other hand, they tend to look for structure, and hand-made quality. In the past, chairs were meant to show rank as well. During meetings the higher the rank, the higher the chair.  Let's not forget that they also look very sexy sitting in a nice leather chair… Right?

With the trial and error to perfect the ergonomics of the chair, it has surely given us a reason to hate them. Structurally, we were not meant to be sitting for as long as we do today. The investment in a good chair will pay you back immensely. However, it is always a good idea to stand and stretch a little every now and then.    

 Now keep it sexy and healthy. Have a sit and enjoy!
