Social distancing due to COVID-19 has had an adverse impact on just about all areas of our lives. In the past, we would be able to get together with the people who matter the most to us to celebrate special events and travel. Now, most of our social interactions must take place virtually. What are a few examples of parties that used to take place in-person that are now taking place virtually? How can you turn these parties into a success? There are several virtual party tips that you should keep in mind to ensure the event is a success and everyone has a blast.
First, a lot of people have had to move their birthday parties to the virtual world. The days of having someone take the birthday boy or girl out to his or her favorite restaurant have been put on hold for a little while. For example, a lot of people are using Zoom to bring loved ones together to celebrate this special occasion.
When planning a virtual birthday party, it is important to think about what type of theme is going to be used. For example, there are lots of banners that people can deploy in the background of a video chat to make sure the birthday feels as special as possible. Then, it might even be possible to get a cake delivered to the birthday boy or girl! This is a way to bring the entire birthday party together. While it does take some pre-planning, it’s a surprise that is certainly worth it.
Finally, there are lots of people who have had to change their wedding plans because of the pandemic. This includes bachelor parties. If you are looking for a way to pull off a bachelor party virtually, there are a few tips that you need to remember. First, make sure that you find a date and time that works for everyone. There are plenty of websites that can help you secure a date and time that works for all attendees.
Then, you can start planning the entertainment and details that you are going to include. For example, make sure you have a menu put together that everyone can follow. This might include booze, steaks, and party favors. Consider getting the attendees set up with food delivery, or even alcohol delivery the day-of. You might even want to bring in a virtual stripper to bring the entire party together! There are plenty of ways to pull off the perfect bachelor party even if it has to be virtual. Don’t let the lack of in-person interaction stop you from experiencing some of the best bachelor party entertainment available.
When you think creatively, you’ll find there are many ways to host a fun and exciting virtual party that is far more than just sitting on a video chat. Even though this is not something that is going to last forever, the pandemic is still going to be with us for the near future. Therefore, everyone has to think about how they can still make a virtual party feel special. With the right platform, the right guests, and the right party staples, it is possible to make every virtual party a success. With this in mind, get a little creative and let the imagination run wild!
For the past 2 days, I saw 2 incredible rooms with the most beautiful geometric rugs. It really got me thinking..do I need a geometric rug? Maybe on my stairs or in my office. YES!! I think I do. I of course went to Google for some inspiration and found some really fab options. Statement rugs are in!!! They are all the rage and I need to hop on this wagon for sure!! The David Hicks carpets are my absolute favorites. I definitely like the hexagon design but they all are beautiful!!! I have to say, as usual, I saved the best for last. The room designed by Nina Draddy stopped me in my tracks. I love love love it. That is exactly how I want my office to look….someday!!!!!
My Favorite by Nina Draddy Designs…. This is what my new home office is going to look like!!!
Have you ever been to Hudson, NY? It has been on my wish list FOREVER. I read about this quaint, oh so popular, town with its many vintage and antique furniture stores, art galleries, restaurants, and cocktail bars. Enter my new friend, Hudson Babylon. Through the owner, Linda, I have learned so much about this unique area, only 120 miles from NYC. But most importantly, Linda has taught me so much about Vintage jewelry. She features the most wonderfully rare items, available to purchase through her INSTAGRAM. I am so impressed with the pieces that she curates. I am planning my own trip to Hudson soon but in the meanwhile, let me show you some of Linda’s beautiful jewelry.

Improving all areas of your physical health is incredibly important. From ensuring you’re consuming enough antioxidants and vitamins to help with your heart, brain and all your other major organs. You should consider certain therapies that can be offered at certain clinics, such as glutathione iv therapy. IV therapies are a great way to get nutrients into your body. Although a healthy lifestyle must work in conjunction with this.
When you want to eat healthy and adhere to a proper diet, you do not always know where to start. One reason is that the terms “healthy food” or “proper nutrition” have different meanings: one thinks it means not eating junk food, while the other thinks it means being vegan or eating only organic food.
Anyone who reads the health sections is often surprised to find that food that is considered unhealthy has suddenly become healthy following the publication of one study or another. In addition, there are several healthy dietary approaches, whose recommendations are not always compatible with each other. For example: low-carbohydrate diets that have been shown to be effective in weight loss and improving cardiovascular risk factors, compared to diets based on complex carbohydrates that have been shown to be similarly effective. So are carbs healthy or unhealthy? Coffee – to drink or not to drink? Yes, in moderation of course. Coffee is good for the brain and also for your bowels, but do not over consume.
There seems to be no single truth about proper nutrition, and as it has become clear in recent years different people are suitable for different diets. Proper and healthy nutrition consists of a set of several factors, each of which has its own unique contribution. It is impossible to change our diet overnight, changing eating habits should be slow but consistent. Each time it is worth deciding on a new change that you want to adopt and persevere with. Once the habit has become a part of life, you can move on to the next habit, and so you will continue to improve your diet until you feel that you have reached your healthy diet. Healthy eating is a very big and abstract concept, here are some ideas for turning the concept into small and practical steps. One per month in the new year.
1. Cook whole grains
Whole wheat pasta, whole rice, wild rice, whole couscous, whole bulgur, quinoa, buckwheat, millet – you should try them in different recipes and those who like to adopt instead of regular cereals.
2. Eat wholemeal bread
Whole wheat bread, rye bread, whole grain bread – plain bread or light bread. It is important to read the small print on the packaging and make sure the bread is made from 100% wholemeal flours.
3. Bake with wholemeal flour
You can choose between two options: The first is to pre-select recipes for breads, cakes, and cookies made from whole wheat flour. The second is the gradual approach, whereby you start by replacing 20 percent of the flour with wholemeal flour, and after practicing and loving move on.
