Designer Wish List

Don’t know what to get for that picky…ahem…I mean… discerning person on your holiday list?  Here’s a few that caught my eye.  Each one has that unique designer look that will liven up any beautiful home. 


(Front Page Magazine Rack from Front)Is it a sculpture, a flower, or a table centerpiece?  It’s a magazine rack from Front, a Swedish design firm.  Imagine pages riffling in the wind: Front recreated the feel into a beautiful polycarbonate storage rack.     

(24karat Blau pendant from Ingo Maurer and Axel Schmid) We all want that sparkle for the holidays but how about year round? German designer Axel Schmid encased 24 karat gold leaf in plastic to create this sculptural light pendant.  The Blau pendant will cast a warm, intimate glow over your festive gatherings.

(Pillows and throws from Anthropologie)For those cold winter nights, I suggest these pillows from Anthropologie.  The grey Ikat pillow, the Bohemian, has a dual personality: one side is a demure pattern, the other has bright pink sequins. The Bohemian also comes in a throw.  And for a fun color pop, there’s the Puffin pillow with a bright graphic red pattern. 

(Crystal chair from Domitalia)Who says casual has to be boring?  Domitalia designed this eye-catching Crystal Chair in jewel-tone violet, perfect for seating those party guests.

(Marrakesh Planters from Joss & Main)For the green thumb or just those with a global view, we have these ceramic Marrakesh planters from Joss & Main.  The red quatrefoil patterns are reminiscent of Moroccan tile designs. 

(Trays from the Foundary) When you serve your guests, do it in style!  These gorgeous serving trays from the Foundary come in many different styles, the golden Lady Fern, the blue & Green Autumn Fern, and the red Quince. Pick one for your home and for a holiday gift!

Buying a car could be expensive, However managing a car is far more biting. The most biting of the running cost is the cost of fueling. This is especially worrying in countries or regions that experience fuel price hike or when we have limited finance. So as a car owner you wan to make sure that every liter of gas (fuel) counts. You definitely wan to increase your car’s mileage and save yourself from unwanted expenses. Here are basic tips to make every liter count.

• Keep Constant Check on Acceleration: Quick acceleration is short cut to over-consumption of fuel. Therefore, it is important to keep a constant check over your rate of acceleration for saving fuel. It is the only answer to the most repeated question asked again and again -how to get best mileage from diesel and petrol cars?
• Avoid Too much Clutching: In case you are driving a used car with manual transmission gearbox, try not to press clutch too much. Use it only when and where it is needed, it will help in keeping your fuel bills in control.
• Significance Of Appropriate Gear Shifting: Just like the previous point, this one is also applicable for cars with manual transmission. Try to use the right gear for right speed; it will help in keeping fuel consumption in check. For more information read the user manual provided with your car
• No Delays In Car Servicing: How to get best mileage from petrol cars, get them serviced regularly. Not only will this save fuel but will help ensuring healthy maintenance of your car’s engine and preventing break-downs.
• Regularly Clean Your Air filter: In case, you are driving through a dusty environment every day, then it is a must to clean your air-filter regularly. A dust filled air filter would obstruct flow of fresh air and suffocate your car’s engine leading to frequent break downs. Frequent cleaning of air filters will consume less fuel and ensure long life of your car’s engine.
• Red Signal? Keep Off Your feet Off from Accelerator: When you know you have to stop your car in next 100-200 meters over red light, it is wise to put your feet off from accelerator and slow down the car. It will be of great use in saving that last drop of fuel.
• Air Pressure: Try to maintain the air pressure in accordance with recommended levels. Keep checking them in every 2 weeks; it helps in smooth running of car and preventing fuel wastage.
• Maintaining Constant Speed Over Highways: Fluctuating speed levels over highways can be one of the prime reasons for fuel wastage. Try to maintain a constant speed level for saving fuel.
