A Mini Momma's Love

\\ C O O L  S T U F F // A Mother’s Day gift for that special new mama in your life.

The Armani Baby Blanket in Support of Free The Children

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Holt Renfrew has partnered with Giorgio Armani andFree The Children to create a limited edition baby blanket. Proceeds of the $50 blanket support Free The Children’s international developing communities in Kenya, providing the necessary healthcare, clean water and support needed for Maasai Mamas and their babies through the first year of the child’s life.

Free The Children believes in a world where young people are free to achieve their fullest potential, and empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens. We couldn’t agree more!

The blankets come in four designs inspired by the vibrant colours of the traditional kanga wrap worn by Maasai mamas. The sale of the blankets will help Holt Renfrew reach its goal of raising $100,000 for Free The Children.

Greta The Giraffe and Her Bunnies

Even though they require a lot of energy and attention, Greta the Giraffe loves her bunnies.

This hand designed illustration has been crafted by the fabulously talented Natasha Boone whom we had the pleasure of meeting earlier this year.  Although she has had a pencil in hand for most of her life, 'Greta' was one of the first illustrations that she completed under the business name 'maryandmaude' (2009).  Intrigued by the visual contrast of big verses small, 'Greta', long and lanky (with a protruding belly of course!) sits rather calmly (resignedly!?) in contrast to the smaller, seemingly more energetic and playful bunnies. Of course Greta loves her bunnies, but indeed, they are a lot of work. As for the red high-heeled shoes: why not? It seemed fitting to Natasha. In an illustrator's world, it only takes a piece of paper, a 2B pencil and a little imagination to create any possible scenario. "In this case, a giraffe, a few bunnies and a pair of red high-heeled shoes. Sounds good to me".

A Beneficial Tool Called Insurance Apps

There are many reasons why having the right insurance policy is important. Being able to have an insurance policy that will give you the best savings for the best coverage is beneficial. Is that enough? In today’s society, the high-tech devices have changed how people interact. Individuals may find an insurance company that has an insurance app. An insurance app can let people manage their insurance during their busy lives with a push of a button. The technological world we live in has changed how we interact with customer service and starting plans. The insurance app is just as beneficial as having a great price for a great insurance coverage.

An insurance app has a lot of resources for insurance customers. The app can make updating plans, services, or ask for roadside assistance more convenient. That is why people prefer to have an insurance company that also has an insurance app. The on the go app can increase insurance clients because it is easier to obtain a policy in less time. The app can offer clients or potential clients up to date information. It offers the ability to start the policy or make changes to the existing policy. An insurance app allows the client to see their coverage, have instant access to insurance cards, and sign any documents for their policy. There is no need to go into the branch of the insurance company because everything can be taken care of on the app.

These apps are improving frequently to offer customers, even more, advantages of accessing the app. Some of the apps will allow you to submit a claim, chat with customer service, and offer rewards and bonuses for staying accident-free. There are some apps who let customers receive credits for their driving ability. These types of apps are able to record the driving of the customer and can tell if they have exceptional driving capabilities.

Insurance companies have no problem rewarding the clients for good driving techniques because it saves the company money. The decrease in wrecks that the clients have; the decrease in payouts the insurance has to make. An insurance app can offer directions to destinations, discounts, and have a trip planner available. They can send alerts to your phone or other device for changes in your policy. The world is revolving and insurance apps are the new way to take care of insurance needs. It is fast, easy to use, and all your information is right at your fingertips. An insurance app is a useful tool to have on hand when you need it the most.

Spring Time with Stella

Q_A WITH STELLA

How do you best describe a Stella McCartney Kid?
I think the Stella McCartney kids have their own sense of themselves. I think it’s important that they’re free and full of energy and life.

What do you believe is important when designing for kids?
For me, it’s important to have timeless, good quality pieces that will last forever and can be passed down to future generations.

What are key pieces kids should have in their wardrobe?
Pieces that you can layer well and that don’t bulk up, so that they can move freely, run, jump, roll around and essentially be kids. You also need pieces that allow them to have their own personality; pieces that they themselves are drawn to while still maintaining quality and avoiding being too overly designed and overworked.

What three words best describe the collection?
Honest, Modern and Fun.

Apartments for Rent: Tips on Better Rental Living

Searching for apartment for rent in Grand Prairie can be taxing. All the shopping then living in the place of your choice is often not the most ideal.

However, there are ways you can make living in an apartment for rent an awesome undertaking. It doesn’t have to be an exhausting experience at all. Do you want to know how to make rental living a better one? Below are some tips to think of.

  • Choose the Perfect Apartment

You may be on a budget, but this doesn’t mean you should settle for the less than appealing place just so you could pay your monthly dues. If there’s a will, there’s a way. Maybe you can save up some money before you move into the apartment of your dreams. Also, you can just do intensive research on available apartments in Grand Prairie, and you may just find a quaint but lovely place to stay into.

  • Befriend Your Landlord

Many people renting an apartment would badmouth their landlords to friends or family members. If you want to live better in an apartment for rent in Grand Prairie, one of the things you have to learn is to improve good relations to your landlord. Better yet, before signing the lease for the place, check the landlord first. Test the waters and see if you get along while having the meeting with him or her. If you are able to discuss through the contract without a hitch, then the landlord is a keeper.

  • Learn to Negotiate

Sometimes, the only way to get a good deal is to negotiate. There are landlords who are willing to talk conditions with you as long as there aren’t a lot of prospective renters for the apartment. You could save on rent and pet fees or parking space bills if you just have the convincing power to do so.

  • Move in During Winter

This is almost true for every part in the world that experiences four seasons. This tip is also extra helpful for those who want to save money on rent. Shopping for apartment during the winter is like sale heaven. Most real estate companies and landlords slash the price of winter listings. Therefore, if you move in an apartment as the snow falls, you will be able to save more money.

  • Improve the Space

Often, apartments for rent will only allow you to upgrade some aspects of the unit. If you are not keen on the appliances or furniture that comes with your rental, you may want to buy your own. On the other hand, if you want a new paint colour on your walls or new kitchen fixtures, maybe you can discuss this with your landlord. Most are open to such improvements especially if it will benefit them in the long run. Just remember to negotiate the price of your monthly rent if you’re the one shelling out the money for these upgrades.

  • Manage Space

Most of the affordable apartments for rent in Grand Prairie don’t have stellar spaces. This is why you should manage your space wisely if you don’t have much of it. Instead of temporary ground fixtures like storage cabinets, you can use command hooks or hanging storage rocks instead. Also, vertical storage furniture is more ideal to use than the horizontal ones.
