What kind of skis should I buy?
4 Nov 2019
Do you want to buy skis, but don’t really know where to start? There are many different types of skis to choose from and it can be difficult to narrow your search. One tip for the advanced skier is Black crows atris. When you are deciding on what kind of skis you need or want, there are some things you need to consider.
Things to consider:
- Length and size
- Ski width
- Turning radius
- Rocker type
- Your riding style and preferred terrain
Length and Size
Choosing the right length ski largely depends on your height, body weight, and what type of riding you want to do. One good starting point is to pick a ski length that hits somewhere between your chin and the top of your head. After that you can think about things like preferred riding style, snow, and terrain. Beginners that don’t want to ski to fast can choose a short ski. For you that you ski fast or aggressively, or plan to do a lot of off-piste skiing, you need a slightly longer ski.

3 Ways to Get Rid of Sweaty Hands
17 Apr 2019
It´s almost impossible to understand how a pair of sweaty hands can be a problem, until you experience them yourself. Not being able to shake a strangers hand can be mistaken for rudeness, and to shake their hands with clammy palms can be even worse. It´s a catch 22 to be honest. Luckily there are ways to remedy the problem and here I will present 3 common ways to get rid of clammy and sweaty palms.
1. Powder can help
Baby powder, or cornstarch, can be very effective. Keep a bottle of powder on you at all times and make it a habit to pull it out and douse your hands. The effect is immediate and will hide your problems from other very effectively. The downside of this method is that it is hard to hide. Everyone will see you use the powder, and it can end up on your clothes.
Iontophoresis is a very fancy name for a treatment that includes electric current. This is a treatment that is used for severe cases of hyperhidrosis and has proven to be extremely effective. Iontophoresis cures sweaty hands and feet by a series of treatments. You simply emerge your limbs into a bath that then will be used as conductor and treat the illness. This is perhaps the best way to treat clammy hands since it is a long term solution.
Not drinking it mind you, but for external use. Wipes with alcohol can slow down the perspiration an make you hands dry. The method is simple to use, but has no long term effect. Using alcohol for reducing sweat is also drying your skin out, which means you will need to moisturize often. And lotions on clammy hands can make the problem worse.

One of the best moments of many people's days is that moment in the evening when they slowly sink into a bathtub full of hot water and bubbles. Well, ok, bubbles are perhaps not for everyone, but who doesnt' like a hot bath to wind down before bedtime? I know I do.
I put my savings in the bathroom
I had a miserable bathroom up until recently, but I still had my evening baths in there. I set the lighting down and switched on som chillout music and ignored all the ugliness. I can't deny though, that i Nurtured a dream of a brand new bathroom in light shades and sophisticated details and saved up money for that particular project over the course of almost a year. The time for my bathroom remodeling came this spring and I was adviced to hire Kerkinni & Company in Minneapolis for the job (and I was confidente about that choice already after our first conversation on the phone).
I had plenty of ideas, but didn't know what was doable and what might be better elsehow so I'm really glad I had a super esperienced remodeling firm to help me out, guide and support me through the whole project.
I still spend almost every evening in my bathtub, and now it's such a pleasure to enter the bathroom. It's light, warm and inviting - and full of modern solutions.
The next thing to save up some money for will be the kitchen.
