Fun for kids and grownups

Inflatable products are always fun whether you are young or old. They have a soft surface which helps to prevent getting injured during play.
They offer fun especially in summer, or if you are lucky enough to live somewhere where it is always warm, then the whole year.
There are a lot of different products that you can find in the offer of inflatable plays, slides are just one of them. For a normal slide you will need something to slide down, for example a castle but by the slip and slide version you just need a flat surface, some water and the fun can begin. Maybe this is the simplest way to have fun with inflatable products and this might be also the most safe of all.

 
Castles are popular amongst others at birthday parties. They are mainly for kids but not only; adults can try them too (considering the rules and weight limit of course). Jumping up and down, falling, then jumping again offers not only fun, but it also keeps you fit. There is no need to go to the gym, when you just had fun in an inflatable castle.
 I remember that years ago a big green dragon appeared on the backyard of a neighbour’s house. They celebrated the birthday of a little girl. There were some kids music on and they had a great time playing around.
This PVC inflatable jumping castle on the picture has a cute Dalmatian design but there are many different kind of castles that you can find.

 
If we are talking about inflatable products, we just can’t leave inflatable bubble balls out. A big ball has a diameter of 70cm and is ideal for playing soccer. 

Find some inflatable bubble ball buy some fun plays or discover inflatable water slides for sale and share your experiences with me.

Have you tried any inflatable play yet? Which would you be the most excited to try out in the near future? As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Outfits not just for the office


✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯

"Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day."

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

Office looks are not just for the office, it is a clear thing. They can be worn on a normal day as well, of course not on the lazy ones. Elegant blouses, button down shirts, classic black trousers or skirts, costumes can be paired with usual clothes. Combining a white shirt with jeans, or a sweater with black trousers creates your own look

The pieces below are from ToSave, an online brand from China. ToSave.com offers products in lots of categories which includes Fashion & Clothing, Jewelry & Watches or Shoes & Bags. Their range of clothes is not so wide but all of them are nice with an amazing price. They offer free shipping for any product and guarantee best price with a new function. That means if you found the specific product somewhere else cheaper, than you can add the URL of this in the box of „Price Match” and ToSave will review the issue.

The deep pink chiffon blouse below with short sleeves lets you create a cute outfit. Its colour is lovely and the beaded details make it look special. It has a small button on the back and it’s true to size.

 
The lovely white button down blouse becomes unique because of the details on its collar. The material is nice but the size is a little bit large for an XS.

 
At least a lovely lace lingerie set which is unfortunately too big for me.


What do you think about the items I chose? Do you like office look? Are you wearing it outside the office too?  As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Lots of love,

New year, new attitude: Try to live, not just exist


✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯


♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
 
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist." (Oscar Wilde)

♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

2016 went by so fast. We might say it every year but it’s still accurate. With the digital world life is speeding up and we receive so many information that we barely know how to handle with all of that. We know what happened on the other side of the world, we know almost „everything”, even those informations we didn’t want to know about. Everything and everybody is online
Our parents and grandparents were growing up in an environment where newspaper, radio and later TV were the only source of news. They didn’t know much about what other people were doing, especially not in different countries. They had a real childhood, an offline life. They spent most of their times outside, they enjoyed the fresh air. For today’s young generations it is unimaginable even just to think about a day, a week without internet. We keep contact with others, we read, we share, we are just online. Most of as always.
Years back it was said that you shouldn’t watch TV so long and so close because it is bad for your eyes. But today we stare at the screen of our laptop, phone, iPad and co. for long hours. Just imagine if you are working in an office with a computer then there are already 8 hours in front of the screen, just at work. And what do you do during your breaks? You go online of course, to check your phone. Your eyes can’t get any rest.
But what are the things you think back most likely? What are your special memories? I bet not your online moments. It is probably the time you spent with your family, friends or other loved ones. It might be a dinner with your boy-/girlfriend, a conversation turning into laugh with your family, a walk in the rain, a funny play with your dog. You might remember the way somebody looked at you or a sentence somebody told you long ago. All these are moments from the offline life we should live more often.
I’d like to ask you the simple question now. When was the last time you did something at the first time? New online things don’t count by this. Making a new layout for a blog, writing a new blogpost, registering at a new site or things like that are no answers. Concentrate on your offline life and if you can’t find anything in the last few days, weeks, maybe you should change. 2017 is full of opportunities. Seize the day

I would like to ask you to comment with one of your most memorable moments. Happy, funny, sad, every kind of story is welcomed.

I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful year with health, joy, happiness and success. Happy 2017!

Lots of love,  
E

Ponchos and capes for cold weather


✯ Hello Shiny Stars! ✯


♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡
 
"December: a month of lights, snow and feasts."

  ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

With December the cold weather arrived in Europe. It is icy and snowy and if you are not really a winter-person, you probably feel yourself best inside the house in a heated room. Wearing layers is a good idea in this season. You never know how the temperature will be in a building you need to make a visit for example and this way you can make sure that it is neither hot or cold for you.

If you are lucky to live in a place where the winter is mild you can wear a nice poncho over your jumper and you are ready to go. But at other places you need to wear them under your winter coat. There are some sweaters in a style of a poncho which are perfect for layering. 

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Above you can see some of my favourites. The colours I choose are neutral: grey and black. They can be worn with a lot of other colours and shades. You can create a lazy or an elegant outfit depending on the clothes, shoes and accessories you wear with them. It’s all up to you. Grab yours now at StyleWe, just make a visit at the pages of fashion poncho and capes. You can also find them on Twitter and Instagram.
Do you like to wear a poncho or a cape? Do you have one in your wardrobe at the moment? What do you think about the pieces on the picture?

The colour of innocence

All colours have their meanings, their characteristics. White is the most innocent of them. It is the symbol of purity and cleanness. The lightest colour which is worn by most of the brides at traditional weddings.
It represents perfection and also a new beginning. It is said that you might desire to wear white clothing or to surround yourself with white items at times when you are moving in a new direction in your life. These can be situations like moving house, seeking a new career or a new relationship.
Wearing a white maxi dress gives you a pure look. You will shine in the colour of innocence. On the picture below you can see three beautiful women dresses, all in white of course. They are ideal for special occasions but the lace dress in the middle makes a perfect beach ouftit as well.

1 / 2 / 3

To find the dresses just click on the numbers or visit the page of gifts for Thanksgiving Day to catch some bargain.

Do you like the colour white? Do you prefer wearing it? What do you think about the dresses I chose? As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Happy birthday, Mickey Mouse!

88 years ago a little mouse was brought into being. A lovely animal, the official mascot of The Walt Disney Company, the first cartoon character with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created Mickey Mouse in 1928 and his career is still undiminished.
Today, on November 18 we celebrate his birthday. It’s Mickey Mouse Day. With his red shorts, large yellow shoes and white gloves you can find Mickey Mouse almost everywhere. On clothes, shoes, accessories, kitchen supplies, pillow cases, carpets, the list goes on.

I’d like to celebrate this birthday with a themed wishlist where all the items are from Disney Store. There are some Christmas decorations and sweaters on the picture which are just great for the upcoming holidays. Anyway, if anyone wants to surprise me with one of these, please feel free to do it.  ;)

Have you heard about this „special” birthday? Do you have something in your home, in your closet that has a Mickey Mouse print on it? Or maybe Minnie Mouse or Pluto? As always, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Have a magical weekend.  :)
