• The Best Vacuum Cleaner for a Busy Life

    Posted on April 28, 2016 by diva in web.

    The days are gone when the housewife stayed at home all day and had plenty of time to vacuum and clean the home. Today, everyone in the family is expected to help with the running of the home. Most people lead busy lives, and often house cleaning is neglected. If a vacuum cleaner is big and bulky, a person may be hesitant to dragging it out of the closet, but there are vacuum cleaners that are designed for a busy life. Finding the best vacuum cleaner you have to read a lot of reviews to figure out which one is good for you.

    The best vacuum cleaners of the last century often came with paper bags that had to be inserted into the vacuum cleaner. It was often frustrating trying to get them inserted, and sometimes they’d become dislodged, causing a terrible mess. They’d be unpleasant to remove. There was also the inconvenience of trying to find a store that sold your vacuum cleaner’s brand, make, and model of bags, and was also an additional expense.

    upright-vacuum-cleanerThese types of vacuum cleaners were usually canister style, and not very convenient to use, unless you had an entire afternoon to vacuum. Today, many cleaners have a removable dust cup. They are also convenient to wash and dry. Many of the vacuum cleaners on the market today are designed for the person who leads an active life. For a busy person, the main feature of a vacuum cleaner is that it should be easy to grab from the closet, plug in, and turn it on. It should be simple to run along a floor, and then be back in the closet in two minute’s time.

    The best vacuum cleaner type is the upright which may be the perfect solution for busy life. They don’t take up a lot of room, like the canister style vacuum cleaner can. Stick vacuums are often lightweight, and they can actually be hung from a hook in the closet. This leaves you plenty of floor space. You can simply lift your vacuum off the hook and get started with vacuuming. There will be no need to dig your vacuum out of the closet because it’s covered in a pile of stuff.

    Another good feature to seek for saving time, is a vacuum cleaner that has a retractable cord. It works by pressing a button. The cord then automatically retracts inside the cleaner, and is conveniently stowed away. You’ll have to pay a bit more for this feature, but it’s worth it. The more inexpensive vacuum cleaners have a place where you have to physically wrap the cord around it. Not exactly time saving.

    You’ll also want a motorized brush head that cleans both floors and carpets. Often many of the older styles of cleaners had different floor brushes that had to be switched out. Busy people have no time to do this.

    Choose the best vacuum cleaner by giving careful consideration for how quickly it will allow you to vacuum your room. The key is to get your floors and furniture clean as quickly as possible, and not be slowed down by additional features.

  • How to Buy Your Husband a New Electric Shaver

    Posted on June 11, 2015 by diva in web.

    It can be difficult buying a gift for your husband. Chances are he goes out to buy whatever he needs, whenever he wants it. Except for a brand new car or a big screen TV–hopefully he would run those purchases past your first, since they are major expenditures. So this leaves you with a budget of under $150. You’ll need something unique, that he doesn’t already have, and something useful that he’ll actually use, and not toss in the drawer. Buying a gift for your husband is definitely hard.

    A great gift that many wives buy for their husbands are electric shavers. Most men could use a shaver upgrade, and it’s something that can be used everyday. It’s not a gift that will get tossed to the back of the closet. One difficult challenge for women is figuring out which is the best electric shaver to buy. Most women have no idea about the difference between two electric shavers. They are all designed to remove hair from the face, so why do shavers vary so much in price range? The two main styles of electric shavers are foil and rotary. Once you’ve asked your husband which he prefers, without making him suspicious about your birthday plans, you can start looking.


    The best way to get started with finding the best electric shaver for your husband is to start online. Online shopping is the best method, as it’ll save you time and money from having to drive back and forth between stores. Sometimes shopping for shavers in-store can be frustrating. Often they’re locked up in cases, and then you have to find a salesperson to help you. Some of them may be pushy to make a sale, and you’re not really finding the best electric shaver for your husband. You may leave the store feeling frustrated, and without a gift for him. Online there are special sites designed to help with buying electric shavers. Here you’ll be able to read personal and professional reviews about the most popular shaver brands and models. Besides review blogs you’ll be able to read through Amazon reviews to find the best electric shaver model. This is a chance to find out exactly what other people are saying about a particular model. Besides reading about electric shaver reviews you’ll also be able to watch online test videos to see the electric shavers in action. Test videos will show you the product at different angles. You can see how easy it will be to clean the product, and whether there’s a cleaning, conditioning, and charging station. You’ll see how the shaver works, wet or dry.

    Whether you’re buying a birthday, Christmas, or other type of gift for your husband, you want to find him the best cordless shaver that is right for him. Your workload will be shortened by visiting special shaver review websites. You’ll know you spent your time wisely when your husband is pleased with how well his new electric shaver works.

  • Make sure to read Reviews before buying the Best Baby Monitor

    Posted on December 8, 2014 by diva in web.

    Parents always want the best for their children. Keeping an eye on babies day and night is easier when you own a good video baby monitor. I was very excited with the idea of purchasing one and searched on the Internet in order to find a good monitor for my child.

    summer_secure_sightThe Summer Infant Secure Sight was a best baby monitor that caught my eye. The design looked very futuristic and the price was also very convenient. The baby monitor’s description presented the product to have a clear vision both during the day and during the night, a range of 400 feet, a battery that lasts up to 10 hours without any interruptions (and that can be recharged), so I decided to buy it immediately. I was disappointed to notice that I couldn’t see a clear image of my baby during the night and realized that the night vision was not as good as it was described online. The sound got interrupted several times and once I couldn’t turn it on again. I started to get worried that the monitor might break exactly when my child will need me the most and will be in danger.

    To avoid an accident like that, I searched for the best baby monitor online. This time, I was decided to read what other users have to say about the product I am interested in buying. I was surprised to find out that other people had the same problems as I did, with the exact baby monitor.  At that moment, I felt really sorry for not reading multiple reviews of the product before purchasing the monitor. If I had done that, I wouldn’t have to go to the trouble of sending the other one back.

    Later on, I found a site with plenty baby monitor reviews that I could read. The reviews were very detailed and the products were ranked. The reviews played an important role in the decision I took. Several users recommended the Motorola Digital Video baby monitor (the 3.5 Inch Colour LCD – MBP 36 – version), convincing me to buy one as well.

    I was very pleased to observe that this product was exactly what I was looking for, and even better!

    The Motorola Digital Video baby monitor has an incredible range, up to 2,000 feet in the open field and up to 600 feet inside the house, while other baby monitors have a range that is limited at 400 feet. The image quality is amazing, very clear and makes it easy to distinguish every detail. The monitor has features such as the ability to pan, zoom and tilt the camera with a remote control.

    I am very happy I purchased this one because its performances are amazing, I hope it turns out to be the best baby monitor I could buy. Taking good care of my baby even when I am not around became possible and for that I am grateful. Whenever my child needs me, the video baby monitor notices me about it and because of that, my baby is always safe.

    Welcome back to The Friday Scoop, my weekly report of what you need to know in marketing news and top picks that are actually worth your time to read.

    This week we’re taking a look at a sneak peek into Facebook’s new Timeline (a major overhaul to profiles), a good look at the latest battle between Facebook and Google+ and more. And, I’ll introduce you to a web diva who is not exactly a woman, but I broke the rules this week to showcase one of my top advisors (and friend).

    Facebook’s New Timeline

    This week at the F8 Conference, Facebook unveiled the new, big overhaul of profiles–the Timeline (the intro video with the SNL guy who played Mark in the Social Network movie, was hilarious).  I digress.  So the great Timeline has been revealed and its definitely a major overhaul–one that I think is finally a good overhaul.

    Facebook developers  have been given a sneak peek with the ability to switch over before the rest of you on 9/29 and I have to say, I’m impressed.

    Fancy Hands Assistance ServicePardon my french, but I’m in love.  Fancy Hands is my new best friend for getting things done.  I spotted them when my good friend Ron Hudson liked their Facebook page.  As with everything Ron shares, I had to check it out.  Boy am I happy I did.

  • Google+ Buttons, Widgets and Beyond

    Posted on January 7, 2012 by diva in web.

    Maria Reyes-McDavis on Google PlusWhile Google+ is the new kid on the block in the neighborhood of social media, it’s causing quite a stir with predictions of successand failure coming from all sides. Obviously, its a bit premature to garner whether Google+ will become the next, better Facebook.  Focusing on that debate kind of misses the point.

    Whichever side you find yourself on, one thing is for sure, Google+ shows that Google has learned from its past social failures.  Not only are Google+ updates being added to real-time search results, it’s also safe to say Google+ is here to stay and what we see now is just the tip of the iceberg.

     So, if you’re looking to do the circles dance on Google+ these are some of our favorite tools.
