From Amsterdam

5 Hoog 3 Achter, daar woonde ik, in de Jordaan. Two years of freedom and happyness started my interest in everyday people on the streets.

to Beijing

Ni Hao! Hok ha he walawa, and that's just about all I've learned :-) Amazing city though, amazing culture, amazing everything.

to Buenos Aires

Ok, this one was just a month, but I loved being in another culture again. Shot tons of great picutres in Argentina.

to Cape Town (Kaapstad)

I didn't know, but apparently they speak dutch here as well. Great weather, great people, but you have to be careful. I was, and I had a great time

What Features to Look For in Baby Monitors

Philips Avent DECT Baby Monitor with Temperature SensorBaby monitors are considered as a nursery accessory that parents can rely on, in fact, it’s hard to imagine a life without them these days. They can come in handy if your baby’s room is two or three rooms away from your bedroom, but some also have extended reception ranges so they can be used when you’re visiting your neighbours. On top of that, they can be an essential tool if you are staying in a hotel or an unfamiliar environment.

Modern-day baby monitors can do more than just alerting you if your baby is making noise. Some brands and models on the market have features that can check your baby’s temperature, tunes, and night lights, and there you can also find models that allow you to talk to your baby (so called two-way systems) which can be great for soothing them from the comfort of your living room.

Baby monitors with extra features

Some models with extra features come with a hefty price tag. Thus (at least if you’re on a budget), it is important to know whether you really need the extras in order to keep an eye on your baby, because there are thing you can do without. The top-performing models can already offer you the basic things you need, they are easy to use and reasonably priced.

What elements to look for in baby monitors

On the baby’s unit, you will find models that are either operated by attaching it to a power outlet or using a battery. Obviously, battery operation is necessary if you need to use the monitor in areas where power is out, and if you frequently have power outages in your area this should be top of your list as well.

On the parent’s unit you also need mains and battery operation, because in this way you can carry the unit in and around the house. The very least it must have is a volume control, a light display and a belt clip.

Other basic features both units (parent’s and baby’s) must have are battery condition indicator, power-on light, different frequencies, automatic battery back-up and a long cord so it will be easier for you to set the unit up.

Just look for a few baby monitor reviews you can trust, plus of course it is always best to choose a monitor you can afford. This may sound like a ‘duh’ tip, but you’d be surprised to see how much people spend on products just because they have features that sound cool. Really, don’t spend too much and choose a model that can offer you the basics, i.e. to help you monitor your baby while he/she is asleep and you’re in your master’s bedroom or somewhere far away from the nursery room.

Sleep Innovations Memory Foam Mattresses – The Best Value For Money

Memory foam mattresses are always one step ahead of regular mattresses in terms of comfort and quality. The mattresses manufactured by Sleep Innovations are even better due to the patented SureTemp technology that they employ in the design of all of their mattresses. They also come in variable thicknesses to cater to a large demographic of consumers.

The SureTemp Technology:

It is a special layer of memory foam that is created with patented open cell foam that keeps the temperature in check by allowing much better airflow through the mattress. This layer also provides much better body weight support than most other mattresses in the market. Regular use of these mattresses will take care of those back and neck pains you often experience after getting up in the morning.
