Making The Most Of Your Desk Lamp

A desk lamp can serve more as a decorative than a functional piece; if you are choosing a lamp for its looks more than its light, you are free to let you inner interior designer run wild.

One look at the many stunning lamps offered by a venerable maker such as Tiffany, for example, will justify the choice of a lamp as ornament more than light fixture.

However the primary purpose of a lamp is illumination. Thus once you have chosen a desk lamp with a lumen output that suits your needs and with aesthetics you appreciate, it’s important you place the lamp properly.

If you have chosen a lamp with a gooseneck design, then it can be easy to move the light source closer to and farther from the pages or pictures before you. These types of lamps are also easier to move entirely out of your field of view without moving their base.

Many modern desk lamps are so lightweight and compact that they can be moved about your desk or even brought to other areas of your home or office; don’t be afraid to move a desk lamp around frequently.

Too often people treat a piece of furniture or a fixture as immovable once it has been set in a given place. Such is hardly the case: you should reposition your lamp as often as you need for ease of reading to to accommodate the other items sharing the desk.

Staying awake to page through a good book doesn’t need to keep your partner up.  Choosing the right nightstand lamp is a bright idea for two reasons: Not only will it ensure that your significant other gets a good night’s sleep, but it can also improve the quality of your own shuteye.

That’s because any glowing light—whether it comes from your lamp or a phone—prevents the release of melatonin, the hormone that promotes sleep. But if you use the following advice on picking the perfect light (and light bulbs) for your bedroom, you can reduce the problem—and still dive into a great read!

Try a Book Light

Skip the overhead light or lamp and use a small book light, which clips onto the novel that you’re reading and aims a concentrated stream of light onto the pages. This keeps your partner in the dark—literally—to the fact that you’re still awake with a book.


Start by asking yourself, ‘What do I want these lamps for?’ Do you want to make a style choice, or do you need enough light to read by as you settle in for bed?

You have different considerations for romantic mood lighting, table lamps that brighten a dark corner, or lamp shades that create a softer light. Choose directional lighting for reading or ambient lighting to get rid of any shadows.

1.FLOS Kelvin Lamps

We don’t have the room for an articulating lamp, but we think these are the best for serious reading lighting. The Antonio Citterio with Toan Nguyen design lamps come in floor, table and wall mount versions. Sleek, but not slick, the Kelvin line reminds us of a metal sheathed bonnet.

2.Living by Christiane Lemieux Flo Light

This is a small and simple lamp that’s great for those who like to read in bed. Flo has a brass outer body and an angled head that directs light onto a small space for focus. The price is reasonable too – great if you are buying a matching pair. The table lamp is 41cm tall, and there’s a floor lamp version too.

3.Habitat Flut Tube Lamp

Here’s an idea shown several years back in an issue of Livingetc (April 2005) showing the Habitat Flut light positioned on the underside of a bed nook. A very clean finish for a modern bedroom and the lamp should provide ample illumination for your greatest sized tomes.

4.Habitat Lyss Table Lamp

This budget retro-style smoked glass lamp is made to show off the bulb, so make sure you choose a good one. Habitat suggests an E14 halogen mini-globe bulb (£2.99) designed to give an ambient glow, rather than directional light. At 19cm high, the Lyss table lamp is on the petite side, but should come in handy for small bedrooms. It comes in an opaque white version too.

5.FLOS Piani

It’s not dimmable, but this modern plastic-and-aluminum lamp’s downward-facing diffuser casts an indirect glow bright enough to read by. Coins, keys, and other tiny objects nestle securely on the rimmed lower tray.

6.Northernlighting Seed

Inspired by the shape of a plant emerging from a seed, the wall-mounted reading lamp uses energy saving LED bulbs and can be shaped into whatever need you might have while enjoying your read. Added bonus: buy a couple in green and you can do an impressive impression of Shrek too.

7.Pooky Nellie Table Lamp

Pooky’s Nellie lamp is made of ceramic with a coloured glaze, which comes in emerald green, red or blue. There’s a choice of pleated cotton lampshades to go with the base, which range from £42-70. All are in a contrasting style that makes for a very unusual lamp. It fits a B22 bayonet bulb and comes with a three-cord braided flex.


Much like bedroom sets, bedside lamps come in several types and styles. Metal lamps with narrow bases work great on smaller bedside tables or if you need extra surface area for books, cups, clocks, and reading glasses.

A wider lamp with multiple bulbs provides more overall light. The materials that go into the lamp denote its sturdiness; a metal lamp is sturdier and more durable compared to a glass table lamp or a wooden bedside lamp. More at

Buy Bulbs Wisely.

Besides just getting a low-wattage bulb, choose one that filters out blue light (the spectrum of light that interferes with melatonin). This will help your body maintain its natural circadian rhythm so that you don’t have trouble falling asleep once you’re done reading.

Be Shady.

Adorn your bedside light with a lampshade that covers the entire bulb. That way, the shade will shield the bulb from your eyesight and limit how bright the area is.

If you start dozing off mid-read, be sure to switch off the lamp. Keeping the light on while you’re counting sheep is linked with more shallow sleep and causes people to wake up more frequently during the night. You might also end up sleeping in an unusual position—such as sitting with your head tilted forward—and waking up with neck or back pain. More at

What is the Best Designer Diaper Bag?

These are 13 awesome choices for the best designer diaper bag. Making your final selection can be hard. The first thing to consider is your budget; you don’t want to blow the bank on your new diaper bag, even if it is tempting to do so! Luckily, there are choices in every budget range, so there is no need to overspend.

If you have multiple children, the perfect diaper bag for you is the Be Prepared. With 17 pockets and multiple, amazing features, you cannot go wrong. I have used many Ju-Ju-Be products, and they are worth the money. The Teflon fabric protector keeps your bags looking brand new, and the crumb drains are an impressive feature.

Also, the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back Backpack is an excellent choice for active families. If you like to be on the go and find backpacks convenient, the Be Right Back is spacious and practical, while still looking fabulous.

There are some other great options. The Cheeky Tummy, in the orange and white chevron pattern, is generously sized and stylish. Another possibility I think is splendid is the Skip Hop Versa.

Sometimes, mothers don’t want everyone to notice the large, diaper bag hanging on their arm. The Versa looks like a black, sleek purse. Instead, it is a functional, organized diaper bag. More at

If you like the look of the Versa but want something larger, the Skip Hop Chelsea is versatile. It converts from day to dinner bag with the flip of a compartment. Mothers love versatility! Decide what features matter the most for your family, and then pick one of these 13 great options.

Not sure what to look for in a diaper bag? Here are some pointers:

– The strap. Many diaper bags these days come with a long, adjustable strap that you can wear over your shoulder or crossbody style. A long adjustable strap also comes in handy when you’re pushing your stroller because you can slip the strap right over the handles so you don’t have to lug it around.

Some of the trendier diaper bags these days do, however, come with shorter, tote-style straps, which are great if you’re looking for a diaper bag that can easily double as a purse. That being said, it’s important to look for stroller clips on diaper bags with shorter handles, so it will easily hook onto your carriage.

– The material. Nylon is probably the most popular material when it comes to the best diaper bags these days. It may not be super luxe, but it is wipeable and easy to clean, which is important when you’re dealing with bottles and other messy essentials. Nylon is also great because it tends to be lightweight, which is a must when you’re carrying around diapers, wipes, bottles, toys and more.

On the flip side, there are some beautiful leather diaper bag options on the market. If you choose one of these, just be forewarned that it will probably take a beating and it can definitely get quite heavy when it’s fully stocked.

– The storage space. Pockets, pockets, pockets! If there’s one thing any good diaper bag needs, it’s lots of pockets. Think special pockets for bottles, pacifiers, wipes and even a hook for your keys. Because your diaper bag will be that place you toss any and everything, it’s super important that there are as many specialized pockets as necessary to help you stay organized.

– The size. The size of your diaper bag is really a matter of personal preference. As you’re narrowing down your options, think about how you’ll be using your diaper bag. If you’re planning to store all of your little one’s necessities for an entire day in the diaper bag, you’ll probably want to choose a roomier diaper bag. On the flip side, if you anticipate making multiple trips home during the day when you can refill and restock, then a smaller diaper bag may be a great option for you.

Máquinas de Hacer Pan – Pros y Contras

Ahora he sido propietario de una máquina de pan durante 5 meses, y ahora creo que es hora de escribir sobre mis propias experiencias sobre los pros y los contras en mi opinión cuando horneas pan con una panificadora casera.

En primer lugar, ha significado que he comenzado a hornear mi propio pan, en lugar de comprarlos en el panadero local. Es increíblemente fácil comenzar, especialmente cuando elige hornear un tipo de pan que se ha horneado varias veces antes, por lo que solo lleva 1-2 minutos poner la panificadora en el proceso de cocción.

Máquinas de hacer pan - Pros y contras


Es ruidoso

El proceso de amasado es un asunto ruidoso razonable que dura un total de 30-40 minutos. Tal vez no sea posible evitar todo el ruido de la panificadora, pero si vive en un pequeño apartamento o casa, no puede ubicarlo en un lugar donde el ruido no le moleste. Esto significa que lo más probable es que te despierte el ruido si comienza a amasar la masa 3 horas antes de que tengas que levantarte por la mañana para disfrutar del maravilloso pan recién horneado.

Agujeros en el fondo del pan

Al principio me había acostumbrado a que había un agujero en mi pan, pero ahora me he acostumbrado, por lo que ni siquiera lo llamaré una desventaja, ya que es muy mínimo. Si las personas han tenido que descartar el pan debido a esto, deben haber hecho algo mal.

Máquinas de hacer pan - ventajas y desventajas

Parte superior sin hornear

Obviamente, la parte superior no se hornea tanto como los lados y la parte inferior, pero se hornea lo suficiente. No se puede hacer pan con corteza dorada en la parte superior, pero se hornea.


El pan horneado en una panificadora es cuadrado y no como el pan que conocemos de la panadería o el supermercado. Me ha costado un poco acostumbrarme a mí y a mi familia.

Tamaño del pan

Si usted es una familia numerosa, debe tener en cuenta que el equipo estándar en el mercado probablemente no hornea un pan lo suficientemente grande. Sin embargo, algunas máquinas son lo suficientemente grandes y pueden cubrir la mayoría de las necesidades familiares, pero desafortunadamente el precio también es a menudo más alto.

Máquinas para hacer pan - Pros y contras


¿Limpieza? Muy fácil

Solo es necesario limpiar la fuente para hornear, pero dado que el pan siempre se suelta fácilmente, a menudo no es necesario hacer otra cosa que quitar el trozo de pan, que se encuentra en el eje del gancho de masa. La mayoría de las máquinas para hacer pan están equipadas con revestimiento de teflón y las piezas se pueden quitar fácilmente y, por lo general, se pueden poner en el lavavajillas.


La panificadora también se puede usar para amasar masa para otros tipos de pan que no desea hornear en la máquina. Lo puse con éxito para amasar la masa en bollos, galletas y pasteles.

Panificadora - ventajas y desventajas

El olor a pan fresco

Es maravilloso que con el temporizador pueda estar seguro de que siempre hay pan recién horneado en la mañana o en la noche con su taza de café. El olor a pan recién horneado de la máquina de hornear hace que sea más fácil levantarse de la cama por la mañana.

Maestro de repostería

Si, como a mí, le encanta experimentar con la creación de varios panes nuevos e inventar nuevas recetas, por lo que se siente como un verdadero campeón de la panadería, entonces una panificadora es un éxito absoluto. Hasta ahora he probado con harina de Graham, granos de trigo partidos, nueces, mezcla de pan de centeno.

Pan en Panificadora - Máquinas de hacer pan

Aparte del ruido, estoy muy contento con mi panificadora doméstica. Hace excelente pan. Es fácil de limpiar y, como dije, increíblemente fácil de configurar. Pronto encontrará sus recetas favoritas, pero también es muy divertido experimentar con los tiempos e ingredientes para amasar / subir / hornear.

Gran información en sobre cómo elegir las panificadoras domésticas, recetas para hacer pan y muchas cosas más sobre hornear.

Choosing The Best Budget Range finder With Slope

Being a golfer requires more than ordinary exercising. It’s not about mastering how to handle the golf club. With the help of a rangefinder, most people have emerged better at the game.

However, there’s a better version of this best budget golf rangefinder with slope that can analyze the slope. What more could anyone want? With it, you can ascertain the level and direction in which your ball will move.

It is guidance that makes you aim at the desired location, getting the target through and through. The device comes in varying models. Aspects like process, quality, and efficiency are what bring about the distinction.

Some types can accurately calculate the slope and offer correct results, while others work on estimation. To ensure you choose the best, consider the following factors.

Functionality Level


Measuring the slope when playing golf is a gateway to becoming a super golfer. However, this isn’t allowed in tournaments. It is a rule from the United States Gold Association.

Nevertheless, the first aspect to check must be the on and off switch. It will help you to activate the slope feature. The device works by magnifying the area to get the correct measurements of the slope.

Therefore, the higher the magnifying power, the better the results. Regular rangefinders come with a maximum of 5x magnification power. The best in the category goes up to 7x, but these are expensive.

Another crucial aspect that you must check is the range. Golf is a game that you can enjoy on limited and also comprehensive sites. Do not limit your choices to a rangefinder that can only work in remote locations. A range that covers a distance of up to 1000 yards is the best.

The last factor under this category is the scanning mode. It is a unique feature, not available in all rangefinders with slope. The feature allows the device to scan the area and point out the targets remotely. The information is essential as it helps you improve your game.



When buying a golf rangefinder with slope, you have to ensure it can help you without posing problems. Therefore check on its configurations. Is it something you can operate without assistance?

Some of the designs make it hard to execute the task. It might be hectic if you are a first-timer, but it shouldn’t take over three games before getting it right. The other concern is size. The rangefinder should come in a simple design that is easily portable.

When playing golf, the last thing you want is to have a burden of luggage. Choose a type with a wrist strap. It has to be light. It must come with a cover to shield it from any damages. In case it falls on the ground, the protective covering will prevent breakages.

The last and most overlooked aspect is water resistance. The cover should be a material that can keep it safe from water when it starts raining and you are playing.

With the above tips choosing a golf rangefinder with slope becomes a smoother process. The factors will help you ascertain the amount of money that is worth for the equipment. More at

What Piano Should i Buy?

Finally, as we wrap up this article, we’d like to leave you with five great digital pianos that we feel are great for beginners and intermediate players. Whether you want to buy the piano brand new or used, we think most players will be quite content with any of the following five pianos:


This entry-level piano offers the best value to students and beginners, with a great hammer-action keyboard and ten good sounds. With a MSRP of $399, you can buy this piano for $349 (new, online) or around $299 (used). In this case, since the price difference is relatively negligible, we recommend buying new.


This piano includes the Multi-dimensional Morphing AiR sound engine and the renowned Tri-Sensor Scaled Hammer-Action Keyboard, along with great features and mechanical emulations.

You can buy for new from both online and local stores for $469, but if you’re lucky to find one of the few used units, you can make yours a second hand PX-150 for $399. In this case, we’d opt for the used unit.



This affordable Kawai piano has one of the greatest 88-key weighted action in this price range and possibly the best sounding piano engine of its category.

You can find the ES-100 for the street price of $799 (new), but being a relatively new product, you’re not going to find lots of used units in both online and offline spaces. Here, you might want to go the brand new route.


The new furniture-cabinet digital piano from Casio has the best value ever in its price range and includes many of the best features contained within other pianos in the Privia line. You can buy a new one for just $799, while used units are still on sale for about $749 (depending on where you look).

We recommend buying the new instrument if the prices are that close, or you can simply wait for the new Casio PX-760 to become a bit more popular in the market and then see if you can track down a very used PX-750.


This revamped iteration of the Clavinova furniture-cabinet pianos offers a stunning sound engine, great keyboard action with ivory keytops, an elegant furniture stand and lots of educational and fun features. It ships for $2899 in its most affordable finish, but you can buy it used for $2300 to $2500.

Being a home piano that’s not meant to be even the least bit portable, any used unit you come across might be in pretty good condition. If so, you can potentially save up to $500. If that’s the case, it’s recommended you purchase this piano used. More at

What are the energy saving options with table lamps?

Interior-Deluxe: Whether it’s for the monetary reasons or the environmental ones, energy-efficient lamp models are now being specially designed in greater numbers to meet the consumer demand.

Without compromising on either task or the general lighting purposes, they have proved beneficial for the reduced energy consumption.

LED desk lamps are the most eco-friendly when compared to the halogen, incandescent and florescent bulbs. LEDs make use of about 1/5th of the total energy that a halogen lamp consumes.

With a possibility of not having to change the bulb or accidently burning yourself when it’s turned on, it is a convenient option to choose from.

What’s more, task lighting with LED desk lamps can be turned more effective through its greater variety of color temperature and CRI. And the unique modern designs in LED desk lamps mean you do not have to compromise on the aesthetics either for better quality.

On the other hand, the halogen lamps, providing you with brisk and bright lighting, make excellent choices for task besides the general lighting ability. The most commonly used incandescent bulbs also reduce glare and shadow formation in their uniform light spread.

One disadvantage to using them is their short lifespan, and the fact that they are more suited to ambient than task lighting. The third option, fluorescent lamps, is brighter than even incandescent light bulbs. Its drawbacks are that it’s expensive and needs a warm up time before producing optimal light output.

One another option to test out is the full-spectrum lamp. Imitating the natural sunlight, they have been designed to support the maximum energy output for all kinds of task lighting applications.

The lifespan of each bulb is a factor that you cannot afford to miss. LEDs, on average, have a life of about 50,000 hours; both fluorescent and full-spectrum can work up to 10,000 hours; the halogens come with a 1000-2000 hour lifespan. They are followed by the incandescent lamps in the end having a relatively short life of about 200-1200 hours.

Types of Floor Lamps

There are a few main categories of floor lamps you’ll come across in your search.

Shaded Lamps

Shaded lamps, sometimes called console floor lamps or traditional floor lamps, are likely the kind of lamp you first picture when you think of a floor lamp. They have a large base with a pole that rises up a few feet to a light bulb that’s surrounded by a traditional shade.

These lamps are great for lighting the space around a table or chair, to enhance your ability to read or complete other tasks you need to be able to see well for.

These are fairly common, so you can find a wide variety of designs in this category and shaded lamps that come at a lot of different price points.

Torchere Lamps

Torchere lamps are similar to shaded lamps, except that the shade points up. This means they don’t provide as much direct light and won’t be as useful for something like reading, but they instead provide ambient lighting that can create a nice atmosphere for the space.

As with shaded lamps, you have a good number of design options and a variety of price points you can find torchere lamps in.

Instead of having a pole that shoots straight up from the base, like the other two options, arced lamps have an arced pole that the lights hang on the end of. They’re often adjustable, so you can change where the light is pointed based on your need.

Some arced lamps have shades, but many don’t. It’s also fairly common for arced lamps to have multiple light sources, so you get more light from them and can adjust where each source of light is pointed for more flexibility. More at

Making The Most Of Your Desk Lamp

A desk lamp can serve more as a decorative than a functional piece; if you are choosing a lamp for its looks more than its light, you are free to let you inner interior designer run wild. One look at the many stunning lamps offered by a venerable maker such as Tiffany, for example, will justify the choice of a lamp as ornament more than light fixture.

However the primary purpose of a lamp is illumination. Thus once you have chosen a desk lamp with a lumen output that suits your needs and with aesthetics you appreciate, it’s important you place the lamp properly.

If you have chosen a lamp with a gooseneck design, then it can be easy to move the light source closer to and farther from the pages or pictures before you. These types of lamps are also easier to move entirely out of your field of view without moving their base.

Many modern desk lamps are so lightweight and compact that they can be moved about your desk or even brought to other areas of your home or office; don’t be afraid to move a desk lamp around frequently.

Too often people treat a piece of furniture or a fixture as immovable once it has been set in a given place. Such is hardly the case: you should reposition your lamp as often as you need for ease of reading to to accommodate the other items sharing the desk. More at
