Reinventing Yourself

Now is the time to start a new chapter in style.

There are many reasons why you may want to inspire a significant transformation in your life. Quite frankly, the pandemic has probably highlighted many of the issues that you are not currently happy about. Now that the world is slowly returning to a sense of normality, there has never been a better time to reinvent yourself.

If you are looking to reinvent yourself, it is easy to assume that wholesale changes are required. In many cases, though, that simply isn’t true. You would probably be better off targeting just a small number of issues. Characteristic changes can be as simple as overcoming shyness. While it’s a lot easier said than done, knowing which goal you want to focus on will make the process a lot simpler to manage.

Personality traits are a great focal point, but you may also find that reviewing the company you keep is vital. We are all influenced by our surroundings. If you have pessimistic and unambitious people around you, it’s hard to unlock your potential. Likewise, if they lead you to bad habits and regrettable decisions, you may find that taking a step back is required. If nothing else, it allows you to dedicate more time to the people who inspire you. 

Although the right support network will change your life for the better, you must also address your life. After all, only you can take responsibility and make things happen. Feeling unfulfilled at work is a particularly common issue. Sometimes you need a new career, but many people just need a change of scenery. Caregivers may find that opting to provide in-care services is more rewarding. The chance to develop one-to-one interactions with patients is a wonderful thing.

Whatever industry you’re in, securing a higher rate of income is another target. Aside from the added sense of self-worth, it will afford a better quality of life. This could mean updating your home, taking vacations, or treating yourself to new fashion items. Besides, financial stability will lift a weight of stress from your shoulders. In turn, this should translate to increased happiness and peace of mind.

Reinventing yourself can also mean adding something to your identity. Learning a new skill or finding a new hobby is an ideal solution. New musicians, for example, will see their entire recreational life take on a whole new vibe. Aside from playing at home, you’ll attend gigs, joining communities, and generally be around your new passion. Similar situations can surface when taking on new sports or other activities.

Starting a new chapter could also focus on no longer making the mistakes that have previously held you back. Quitting bad habits or situations that lead you to regrettable decisions will help you focus on building a better future. Even the seemingly small alterations can inspire a significant improvement to your quality of life. In turn, it can help you finally unlock your full potential and become who you want to be.

After the struggles of the past two years, it’s the least you deserve. You’ve got this!

Happy Father's Day


Must Haves For Your Next BBQ

I received these products from Carpathen for review.  They offer a variety of flamping, BBQ and gardening products.  They also have an Amazon store.  Whether you're looking for a last minute Father's Day gift, or just something that will make your summer BBQs tastier and easier, you're going to love these products.

The Z-Smoker Pellet Tube will transform your grill into a smoker.  Due to its small size, this pellet tube smoker fits inside most grills to make it super easy to add a delicious wood smoked flavor to your food without needing an expensive cold smoker.  Just fill
the smoker tube with food grade wood pellets in the flavor of your choice and light.  You'll get 5 hours of thin blue smoke that will infuse your meat with an awesome smoky flavor.  Works great with pork, ribs, cured meat, hot dogs, sausages, chicken, cheese, fish and more.

The Z-Smoker kit includes:  
  • 1 Smoke tube
  • 1 Smoking Guide with Amazing Delicious Recipes and Smoking Tips in digital format
  • 1 Meat Temperature Chart (in digital format)
  • 1 Marinade
  • Rubs and BBQ Sauces Guide (in digital format)
  • 1 Pellet Tube Smoker User Guide (hard copy)

You get everything you need to have a wonderfully delicious BBQ.  You can also find the Z-Smoker on Amazon.

Nothing says summer like roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a campfire.  These Roasting Sticks make it super easy and convenient to roast these delicious campfire staples.  No need to wander around in the woods searching for suitable branches to clumsily chop for a decent roasting stick.  These roasting sticks are perfect.  

They telescope like a radio antenna to extend from 10" to 34" to create the perfect length.  The fork can rotate independently from the handle with just two fingers on the colored plastic ring.  The handles are made of natural wood and are comfortably pleasant to hold.  And heat is not conducted through the rod, so there's no danger of being burnt from holding them.

The set includes six different ring colors on the handles, making it easy to tell which stick belongs to who.   This is essential when you have more than one child because children fight over everything!  Clean up is super easy, simply wipe with a wet cloth and a little soap.  Then retract the handles and place the sticks back in the included zippered bag.  

They're compact, easy to store and convenient to carry, making it easy to take along with you on all of your adventures.  You can also find these Roasting Sticks on Amazon.

The Perfect Sweater For Every Occasion

I received this product from Oliver Charles for review.

This Crew Neck Sweater ($225) will quickly become your favorite article of clothing.  It's stylish, comfortable, unisex and versatile.  It works just as well for everyday wear when paired with jeans as it does for dressy occasions paired with a skirt or dress pants.  There are six different colors to choose from (undyed, emerald blue, light grey, charcoal, dark red and navy blue), and since it is so soft and comfortable, you're probably going to want one in every color!

This sweater is perfect for all ages.  Sizes range from XXS to XXL and it's actually true to size.  It wears with a slimming professional fit and will shape itself to your body to fit both broader and narrower shoulder lines.  It's roomy in the armpits, so it won't ride up or bunch up when you raise your arms, and it will fit those with longer arms and taller torsos as well.

The sweater is made of khullu, the wool fiber that grows around the neck and belly of the Tibetan yak.  Khullu is known for its durability, comfort and antimicrobial properties.  Yet, it remains soft and luxurious to the touch.  It's soft like cashmere, but easier to care for (it's machine washable) and better for the planet than synthetics.  

3D-knitted in 1 entire piece, there are no seams means there is less fabric waste while the strength is increased.  This also give it greater mobility and comfort.  The hidden aerated knit helps to regulate heat.  It will keep you warm, yet remains breathable.  Another great thing about this sweater is that it doesn't trap odors! 

You'll love this soft and comfortable sweater so much!  It's perfect for even the most sensitive skin, and you will revel in the softness!

A Stylish Watch Gift Set

I received this product from Groovy Guy Gifts for review.  This is a great site to shop for gifts for the men in your life.  Whether you're looking for a gift for Dad, husband/boyfriend, brother, groomsman or friend (or something for yourself because you deserve it!) check out their site to see their full selection.  They have TONS of great products!

The Cool Hand Groomsman ($89.99) is actually designed as a groomsman gift, but it makes a great gift for any man. 
The set comes with an engraved wristwatch, sunglasses and cufflinks, all displayed and stored in a sleek watch organizer box that measures 13" long, 8.125" wide and 3" high. 

The box is made of black vegan leather with a faux suede lining inside and a glass top.  There are four watch compartments, two compartments for storing rings or cufflinks and three other compartments where you can store sunglasses, jewelry, keys, spare change or whatever else you choose to store there.  You can make it even more special by personalizing the glass top with a name or the initials of your choice.

The watch is a classic timepiece that's made from real sandalwood and genuine leather.  The sunglasses are stylish and functional, made with sebring woodgrain plastic and are perfect for those sunny summer days.  The watch and the sunglasses can both be personalized.  The cufflinks are brass and make a stylish addition to any suit or tuxedo.  They do say "Groomsman" on them, but they look awesome!

This gift set is sure to impress anyone who receives it.  And you'll turn heads when you wear the watch and sunglasses.  The box is great to empty your pockets into at the end of your day, keeping it all together, organized and putting an end to clutter.
