The Elements of an Amazing Game Room

Today’s gamers are serious about what they do. They want to spend their time playing games in the ideal environment. This makes sense. After all, an athlete prefers to play at the best venues. It is only natural that the gaming area is crafted around the needs of the gamer. Since many people play games during their adult life, it is important to invest in the right tools for a game room. The following are some of the top elements of an amazing game room.

Great Seating
If your game room is centered on video games, then game chairs are a necessity. These chairs can maximize the playing experience and help increase the enjoyment out of playing games. Many people feel that they perform better when they sit in the right chair. They are more relaxed, and they can focus easier.

A Good Layout
Game rooms should be laid out properly. It is important to use the space wisely and avoid cramming too many games in an area. This can overwhelm gamers and make it harder to play. Instead, focus on a few primary activities, and make sure that there is enough space to play each game.

The Right Lighting
It is important to install the right lighting for the specific games you have in your room. For example, if you have a poker table, then it might be wise to install overhead lights so the players can see their cards. On the other hand, video games do not require as much light.

Minimal Decorations
In a game room, too many decorations can be distracting. Instead, it is better to focus on installing good lighting and the right furnishings. Also, consider adding a scoreboard to help the players keep score. Another great way to add style to this room is with a fun paint color. These minor details can easily enhance the area without overpowering it.

Sound Proof
Several people like to sound proof their game rooms. This is a good idea if people will spend long hours in this room – particularly late at night. It is also important to sound proof the game room if it is close to bedrooms. The last thing you want is to have your sleep disrupted because your family and friends are spending too much time in the game room. That scenario is much better for you if you cannot hear the activities taking place in the room.

Plan your game room today around your favorite games. You will love spending time in this room, and it will be a great place for you to invite friends to hang out.

A Great and Soft Gift for Christmas

Oh yes, this for sure is something that can actually be gifted whole year-round! But to those of you who are having a hard time finding something for a friend, loved ones and those "who have everything", this is one of my suggestions. The 3-piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Sets are a beautiful update to any bathroom. Who wouldn't appreciate a new set? :)
What I love about this towel set:
1) It includes One Bath Towel - 30"x55"; One Hand Towel - 20"x30" & One Face Towel - 13"x13" 
2) It comes in multiple color options: Black, Chocolate, Charcoal, Cream, Forest Green, Latte, Light Blue, Navy Blue, Plum, Purple, Red, Rust, Seafoam, Stone, Teal, Toast, Tea Rose, White
3) The pattern is simply solid in color which is great for any bathroom style.
4) It is made from 100% Egyptian Cotton which is really soft!
5) Each towel is featured with a hanging hook for easy hanging
6) Last but not the least, it is machine-washable. :D
The color I chose was Light Blue and I was really surprised when I received it. It's the thickest towel set we have at home. There's no smell upon opening the package though I washed it before using. I always do that with new clothes/linens. 
I also carefully looked at intricate pattern and it was sewn really nice. I only found one loose thread which didn't really made any negative effect on the towel. 

I was not compensated to do a review of the product/s mentioned above. I was given a free towel set to facilitate my review but everything was based on my honest opinion.

Btipsy Cocktail Muddler Review and Giveaway

I don't really drink much, just occasionally. Honestly, I do not know how to mix alcoholic drinks, not one! I do have friends though who knows how to prepare cocktails drinks for special events and they always wow me. That's why this Btipsy Cocktail Muddler got me interested.

I never knew how easy it was to prepare drinks for guests using a muddler. There are actually a few things I like about this product. First, it doesn't slip (most probably because and if you use it the correct way, like above). The muddler's weight is right enough (not too heavy so as not to make your hands tired) to crush ingredients. I also admire the quality as to how it was made. There were no scratches on the silver metal when it arrived (unlike some other products I've received previously).
Besides mixing mojitos and other cocktail drinks, I found it useful with other kitchen chores too. Like for example, in baking banana bread and in making mashed potatoes! Just look at how those little hands became really helpful. This muddler also works perfectly with kids' hands I should say!
Potato Masher!
