To start with, if you are looking for Holiday Houses in Queenstown, you also might want to check out the stunning Apartments in Queenstown, surrounded by beautiful scenery, this apartments are perfect for short or long term relaxing holiday!

Men's Shaving Tips For Goatee style

Goatee is my husband’s shaving style for over 6 years now and I think he has done a really good job in shaving and maintaining that neat goatee look! You see, shaving a goatee style can be a little tricky and you could end with razor burns when you are shaving incorrectly. So, on this blog post sponsored by The Art of Shaving, I would like to share with you my husband’s goatee shaving tips.

First, you have to grow beards to get that desired goatee look and then you will need these things:

1. Beard trimmer
2. Shaving cream
3. Razor

To shave beards into a goatee:

• Use a beard trimmer and trim your beard to a length which a razor can easily handle.
• Pre-determine the desired size of your goatee and shave the up to that border. Best to start wide and trim in until you like what you see, but always make sure that your goatee should not go pass your smile line.
• Always use a new or sharp razor to sculpt your goatee as this helps in shaving accurately and save you from razor burns.
• Start by applying a shaving cream to your entire bread, except the mustache and the portion that will eventually become the goatee.
• Begin shaving the side of your face and the lower jaw area.
• Proceed in shaving your mustache until you reach your smile line.
• Check and make sure that your goatee is even and check the underside of your goatee and trim up the edges until you get a smooth and uniform shape.
• Now you have your goatee!

Please note that to keep your goatee tidy, you will need to do some maintenance every few days.

Storage and Cooking Instructions of Thin Pepperoni Pizza

I am posting this as a personal reference as I usually would throw away a pizza box once bought home and store in the freezer. The problem is that when the time comes to cook the pizza I do not have the box and so is the cooking instruction. So I have decided to have a copy of my own here in my blog. This is the cooking guideline for the brand Goodfellas Thin Pepperoni Pizza.

Cooking Guidelines
Oven cook - From Frozen: For best results cook from frozen. 1. Get the oven warmed up to 190°C/Gas Mark 5 for a fan assisted oven heat to 180°C. 2. Remove all packaging and recycle carton. 3. Spread out topping, then slide your pizza onto the top shelf of the oven. No need for a baking tray. 4. Bake for 15-17 mins. When your Goodfella's Thin Pizza is golden brown and piping hot, pop it on a wire rack to cool slightly before eating, as toppings can be extremely hot. As appliances may vary, these are guidelines only.

Storage
Food freezer **** Until best before date† Star Marked Frozen Food Compartment *** Until best before date† Star Marked Frozen Food Compartment ** 1 Month Star Marked Frozen Food Compartment * 1 Week Ice Making Compartment 3 Days †Should be -18°C or cooler Do not refreeze, once thawed.

5 simple tips to insulate your home and save energy

I do not know if you are aware that the energy bills have gone up this year and to think it is only the beginning of the year! So to keep it low, I have here some tips that you might want to follow. My family and I have done these steps a couple of years ago and so far have seen a big difference when it comes to our energy bills. Here are those steps:

1. Replace your old boiler with the modern ones as they are usually 'A' rated high efficiency condensing boiler which would reduce CO2 emissions as well as the heating bills.

2. Set your thermostat to an average of 68°F to 70°F in the winter and lower when you are not at home, by doing this you could cut the heating bills by up to 10 percent of your usual bills.

3. Have your home properly insulated by installing thermal wraps on your attic or loft, double glazed your windows, and use Continuous Insulation on walls. These would prevent heat escape and would keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summertime.

4. Fit draft guards around the front door and over the letter box on the door, or put a curtain over the bottom of the front door, this will help keep the drafts out!

5. Use insulated blackouts fabric curtains during winter season and closes it when it starts to get dark to keep the heat in and drafts out.

By doing these steps you are not only cutting down your energy bills, but you are also saving the planet by reducing CO2 emission. So help the world by helping yourself too!

Bake Whole Salmon Recipe

I got this from BBC recipe and had a go with it on boxing day, the fish was lovely and it tasted so good! It is so easy to prepare and the ingredients are easy to find as well, so even if you are not an expert cook, like me, you too can have a go with it.

Ingredients
• 1 whole salmon, 3-4kg/6.5-10lb in weight, gutted and cleaned
• 4 sprigs fresh parsley
• ½ lemon, sliced
• 2 bay leaves
• 150ml/5fl oz dry white wine
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation method
1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
2. Take 2 large sheets of foil and place on top of each other in a roasting tin. Spread the oil on the foil and place the salmon on top.
3. Put the parsley, lemon slices and bay leaves into the body cavity. Fold the edges of the foil together but just before sealing, pour in the wine.
4. Bake the fish for 50-60 minutes.
5. Serve hot or cold. If you want to serve it cold, allow the fish to cool in the parcel and then gently peel off the skin and garnish with thinly sliced cucumber and watercress.

I have here some photos of the said Salmon, note that I am only just starting to cook and not an expert so please bear with me. The skin of the fish came off when it was cooked but it did taste and smells so good.

Choosing a Good Razor


My husband has a sensitive skin but over the 5 years of being married to him I only saw him once with razor burns! Now, he believes that a bad choice of razor is the main factor of getting those razor bumps and cuts, so to avoid those from getting into your skin, here is a guide of choosing a good razor.

• If you have a problem with razor burns or if you have a sensitive skin like my husband, a safety razor is recommended. The reason for this is that this razor gives an easy control of directions and it gives a better control of the pressure of the razor hitting the skin.

• If you prefer to choose an electric razor, the best thing to get is a modern type, the one which you can use a shaving cream with.

Now when choosing the right blades, there are razors with 4 blades, 3 blades, 2 blades as well as 1 blade, but a razor with 2 blades is recommended for someone who has a sensitive skin! Why? Well, it is because the 3 and 4 blades give so much blade contact on the skin which can cause razor burns and razor bumps too.

For some they may recommend that you experiment by using deferent razors when shaving to see which one suits you best, but my husband would always recommend a safety razor, especially to those who have sensitive skin.
