The Different Ways You Can Use Coconut Plus Giveaway


When it comes to coconut, most people just think of that hard brown fuzzy fruit (or seed or nut) which is hard to get into, and when you do, you lose most of the liquid inside due to having to break it open. But coconut is much more than that.

I've talked about the CM La Vie beauty balm from Coconut Merchant before, about how this cruelty-free, cold pressed pot of loveliness has extremely hydrating properties and can be used for the skin, hair, deodorant, and even as a make-up remover.

How To Set Up Your Dining Room Like An Interior Designer


The interior design embodies the concept of enhancing the interiors of your living space to assimilate into it aesthetically pleasing and functional decor that best suits your personality. While most of us aren’t interior designers, who are specially trained for this, it is very possible for you to do this on your own if you keep a few key points in mind. This includes playing around with various combinations of lighting, colours and materials until one is satisfied with the feel of the room. This is even more applicable to the place where you and your family wines and dines. Dining rooms are responsible for contributing a whole lot to the look of a home, and if you would like to set it up like an interior designer would read these invaluable insights on how to decorate your dining room.

What are the latest and most fashionable doors?


Generally, there are two categories of doors. Internal and external. Internal doors refer to doors that are installed inside a house, like doors leading up to the bathroom, kitchen and patio.

In case you’re doing a little spring cleaning, here are some of the fashionable doors that we are offering.

How To Check Tyre Tread Depth Using The 20p Method


Tyres are the vehicle's only point of contact with the road which means they are the most important thing on your vehicle when it comes to safety. Bald tyres may work great when you're in a race car but no good at all when you're popping down the local Asda on a wet road surface. 

The treads on tyres are designed to pump water from the road surface and provide maximum grip, being the only grip you will get to the road. Checking your legal tyre tread depth is one of the most important checks you can make on your car as having worn tyres is basically an accident waiting to happen.
