3 Amazing Wall Art Ideas for the Living Room

Your living room should be a space where you can spend time with family and friends in comfort. It’s that special space in your home where you spend healing time with yourself too. While there are so many endless possibilities in designing it, it’s essential that it should all come together and create a harmonious space that is a haven of comfort and relaxation.

Aside from the color palette, fixture and furniture, accessories, and furnishings, wall art is a critical design piece to complete your living room’s entire look. It can be used to complement with the different design elements in the living room or be the center of attraction. Regardless the purpose, here are 3 wall art ideas that could liven up your living room:

  • Hang an art centerpiece on your wall space

One of the best ways and most effective, at that, to bring life to your living room is to hang a poster centerpiece. The key to this wall art idea is to pick an appropriate poster and frame according to your living room theme. Pick a large wall art, possibly one that takes up the wall’s width so it will be centered. For example, in a modern theme, choose a poster with crisp, clean lines with a simple color palette. The Blue and White Light Trails abstract poster would flawlessly fit into the criteria of modern art. Slide this poster into a metal or steel frame, and you have your centerpiece!

  • Create a wall art collage

Mounting a wall art collage can do so much for your living room. It will bring life into the room, breathing energy and harmony into an entire theme. Building a wall art collage is tricky. To ensure that you get the most out of the collage, there are some fundamental design principles to keep in mind. Go with a specific theme. Try to coordinate colors. If you’re following a certain theme, base it off that. You can also mix light and dark colors, just ensure that there is transition, so it wouldn’t be an eyesore. Never overlap posters. Frames should also match and create a harmonious display. This Golden Gate Bridge poster is a good poster piece for a collage especially if you love travelling or you’re into landscapes.

  • Set posters against the wall or on an easel

Take wall art creativity to the next level in your living room by setting up posters against the wall. Alternatively, you can place it on an easel for that artist effect. Make sure to place the poster in a thin frame before easing it on the wall or putting it on the easel. The latter would work best on a large living room as it takes up a lot of space. Several posters can be set up against the wall for maximum effect too. The keyword when choosing the right poster is harmony. It should complement or enhance the living room’s overall styling. This Blue Vintage Car on a Steep Road poster is one awesome wall art for mounting on the wall or on an easel. It will definitely go well with a vintage themed living room!

Gambling away at norwegian casinos

Gambling Adventure at Norwegian Casinos

As someone who’s involved with the casino industry in quite a few ways, it probably comes as a no surprise that gambling online is one of my hobbies. I don’t do it too often, but every now and then, I like to try my luck with some new slots that come around and hit them while they’re fresh.

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine from Norway, whom I actually met through gambling, came to visit. He was only there for a weekend and I used the Saturday night to show him around the city and we hit a few clubs. Unfortunately, things get fairly quiet here after 3:00 AM and seeing how this was the only night we could go out, we weren’t in the mood to go to sleep just yet.

So, figuring out what to do, we figured we could do some gambling (shocking, I know). But, since we don’t have any really good casinos, we grabbed some beers and went back to my place and fired up the laptop. I have a few casinos I usually play at, so I figured I’d just make a deposit (or few) at one of them and we’d have some fun.

However, when he saw what I was about to do, he took the mouse from my hand and said: “no, no, norsk casino er de beste!” Now, my Norwegian isn’t really anything to be proud of, but I know enough to understand he was saying Norwegian casinos are the best. I was too drunk to argue and to me, they’re all the same really, as long as they pay me when I win.

So, I let him took over and he first went to Rizk Casino. I actually knew about Rizk, just never played there, and I knew they were a good one, so I was pleased with his choice. He logged in with his account and he had quite a balance there – I was actually a bit surprised. He went straight to Bonanza and set it up for 50 NOK spins (which is around €5). Now, that game can be really brutal, but we ended up triggering the bonus after just 20 spins, and it was a 5 scatter trigger! It wasn’t a huge one, but it did pay just shy of 20,000 NOK, so pretty decent.

After this, he moved on to Betsson, which seems to have all the games under the sun. He had some money there as well, but it was just around 2,000 NOK. So, he decided to play „reasonable“ spins of 20 NOK on the Book of Dead and despite triggering a couple of bonuses, we ended up busting the balance in about half an hour.

By the time we were done, it was past 5:00 AM, and since he was up nicely, he decided to call it a night. The funniest thing, after he was done, he actually sent me €800 on Skrill as my half of the winnings. We never really discussed it and I don’t think I’d agree on playing €5 spins, because that’s five to ten times higher than my usual stakes, but he insisted.

So, I guess Norwegian casinos are the best?

Top 10 Natural Supplements to Take Before Working Out

If you want to amp up your routine, there are several supplements available in the market that can do that for you. Natural pre workout supplements are one of these, and it effectively enhances workout performance safely! Here are 10 natural supplements you might want to take a look:

  • Caffeine – studies have shown that consuming caffeine pre-workout increases endurance and alertness, improves focus and concentration, boosts pain tolerance, and helps burn fat in the process. If used with green coffee bean extract, it becomes an even more effective fat burner. Caffeine is one of the most effective pre-workout natural supplements because it works at the central nervous system.

  • Whey Protein – pre workout consumption of whey protein is even more beneficial than consuming it after a workout because it fuels your muscles at the time you’re training and immediately starts protein synthesis. In a scientific study, a scoop of whey protein before a workout increases calorie burning over the next 24 hours.
  • Omega-3 Fish Oil – aside from being great for cardiovascular health, omega-3 fish oil as a staple for pre workout supplement. It decreases muscle breakdown and increases protein synthesis, allowing your muscles to work better and workouts a lot easier. It is also rich in anti-inflammatory components for speedy recovery and puts an end to delayed onset muscle soreness. These same components also diminish risks of overuse injuries. The fatty acids in omega-3 fish oil promotes better calcium absorption so you’ll have strong bones.
  • L-carnitine – an amino acid-like component, L-carnitine is both a potent fat burner and performance booster pre workout supplement. It boosts motivation through the increased production of adrenaline. The fact that L-carnitine is broken down into long-chain fatty acids also helps in improved heart health.
  • Beta-alanine – When it comes to supplementing with beta-alanine, you can expect improved endurance due to its ability to form carnosine, a compound that regulates muscle acidity. Some studies show that taking beta-alanine also helps with muscle growth.
  • Mucuna pruriens – Rich in L-Dopa content, mucuna pruriens’ one standout benefit is its ability to increase the production of the human growth hormone. An increase in the HGH enables the body to break down fat faster and develop more lean muscles. The L-Dopa content of this natural pre workout supplement increases testosterone levels, which in turn, effectively boost muscle mass. Mucuna pruriens can also promote mental alertness.

  • Green Coffee Bean Extract – In tandem with caffeine, green coffee bean extract is an effective fat burner because it is abundant in chlorogenic acid. This fat burning supplement has even been tested in human clinical trials and was found to help lose weight an average of 18 pounds over the course of 22 weeks in a study conducted in India.
  • Capsicum – Primarily, capsicum is an effective fat burner since it activates the body’s metabolism through a series of events so fat is melted and broken down in the body much faster. It’s been proved in studies that fat oxidation is significantly increased when taking capsicum supplement. Capsicum is found in spicy foods as red pepper, chili, paprika, and more.
  • L-arginine – When taken pre workout, L-arginine provides a number of beneficial effects most especially for increased muscle size, reduced after workout fatigue, and decreased recovery time. Due to the fact that L-arginine stimulates the production of growth hormone, increased muscle mass is also seen as one of its positive effects.
  • Rhodiola rosea – while many supplements increase physical performance and endurance, Rhodiola rosea can increase mental endurance on top of increased physical strength. This supplement fights free radicals that can cause inflammation, which results to muscle fatigue. Rhodiola rosea is also seen to increase the levels of serotonin, which in turn reduces mental stress and anxiety.

A high-intensity boost during your workout routines can definitely be achieved. Get started with the 10 natural pre workout supplements above. Natural pre workout supplements work just as effectively without the associated side effects. However, don’t expect for the natural supplements to work magic, because it doesn’t. It takes the proper training, the right nutrition for your workout goal, and these natural supplements to see positive body results!

Casinojefe Free Spins

Won Big in Online Casino for free

So today I just wanted to share this moment from the weekend. I had some friends over and we decided to gamble a bit online. My friend recommended me this online casino guide which lists all the best no deposit keep what you win bonuses. These are basically free spins that you receive upon registering an account at an online casino. If you win with these free spins you get to keep all your winnings.

If you are familiar with online gambling, there is something called wagering requirements. It means that you have to wager the amount you win from free spins a number of times before you can withdraw any money. However, recently there’s been an increase in online casinos that have 0 times wagering requirements on free spins. This means that whatever amount you win from your no deposit bonus, you can withdraw straight away.

Casino Jefe Online casino

Anyways, we searched the online casino guide and found an offer for a casino called Casinojefe. They gave out 11 free spins on a video slot called Spinata Grande with 0 times wagering requirements. We started playing and got really lucky right away. We managed to win $25 in total, but we weren’t done yet. We said to each other “Let’s play five spins with $1 stake each. Then we quit”. So we started spinning away and again, we got really lucky and won an extra $100. We did the same thing again. Five spins, but with $5 stake. This time we won $450 and just cashed out everything. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon!

Here’s a video of how the slot looks like


Next Time – Casino Bonuses

Needless to say, we had a great day playing slots. My friend recommended that we should try going for a casino bonus the next time we play since we have a pretty ok bankroll now. He said he uses a site which lists the best casino bonuses that you can find online.

Falling in love with the dirt bike

I believe that trying out new things is the best way to stay young at heart while growing older. I started feeling the desire to learn how to ride a dirt bike earlier this year, but it wasn’t until a month ago when I decided to take the risk. So far, the learning curve has been steep for me, but I’ve hit a few milestones.

My Dirtbike

As a starter, I wasn’t quite sure on which bike would work out best for me, but after a few consultations, I decided to go for a small-wheeled Honda CRF150R. I bought my dirt bike from http://www.magicbike.net/dirt-bikes-for-sale/ if you’re interested in one yourself.


Getting started

Everything for me was trial and error on the first day; learning to load and unload the bike seemed like something I would never master on the first attempt but which I eventually did.

  • After that big success, I rode around in big circles in the first gear for what seemed like ages. Whenever I tried to go for the second gear, I would miss it miserably, and kept missing time and again. Most of the time I would stall and couldn’t restart the bike; I had to get my brother to do it for me every time. This became my biggest challenge. I would also say that it was the beginning of my dirt biking education. Here are a few takeaways I came away with at this stage:
  • You have to get your body position right
  • I realized that the only way to navigate bumps and obstacles involve standing, and I rode my bike in this position about 90% of the time .You will probably need to crouch a little rather than stand and then spread your body out for balance while keeping your hands free and elbows strictly out of the way.
  • Plant your feet in the ground when the need arises
  • Use your two natural wheels from time to time, and while that knee will blow out along the way, a few weeks of practice will make this kind of action almost flawlessly instinctive. I had better hold when I kicked my leg directly out and twirled the toes upwards.
  • Learning the jumps requires strength, brains, and agility.

I used to marvel at the spectacle of scrawny riders launching 250-pound beasts into the air and landing them as sleekly as can possibly get, and this might actually have been a pull factor for me joining the sport. However, you will need to know that these maneuvers require plenty of effort, practice, and technique.

Dirt Biking as a sport goes back many years but the first official dirt bike competition went down only in 1952,after which hundreds of similarly structured events sprouted up. Today ,this is more than a sport; it is a way to the top for some, a hobby for others and a health regime for an even bigger lot. The right dirt bike for any competition, as I came to realize, depends on the terrain involved, so take a good look at your riding zone before splashing the cash. While at it, avoid using your dirt bike on highways and streets. It’s expressly prohibited.

My adventure with the dirt bike may be a little more enjoyable now than when I started out, but it’s far from over. I have learned that the key to getting it right lies in daredevilry and practice.

Why I love Rachel Mcadams

As an ardent supporter of Rachel McAdams, I know I’m speaking for millions of dudes out there who keep their eyes on the ground hoping to catch the latest buzz on who the actress is going out with, what she is wearing, and basically what she just happens to be doing on a particular day. Now, she likes to keep her life mysterious, which only adds to our fascination and love for her.

Now that you know that we share our love for this Canadian beauty, isn’t ‘why’ the most pertinent question of the hour? Well, then let’s go in:


She is stunningly gorgeous

Incredible to think McAdams is 37 at the moment. I mean, looking at those hazel eyes and high cheekbones, you would be hard pressed to suggest that she might be even a minute older than 25. In addition to that, she has this on-camera presence that literally holds you spellbound for as long as you are looking. Throw in the killer smile and you got yourself a major league winner. Definitely, for me she is.


And it’s not all beauty, too

McAdams did not make it up there by just being a bombshell brunette who also likes to go blonde and red at times; she has worked long and hard to get where she is today. We know for a fact that she was figure-skating at the age of four. By the time she was 12,Rachel was acting, something she did all through her schooling years. However, she never believed talent was enough, going back to school for a Bachelor of Fine Arts program. In 2001, She graduated from York University in Toronto, Ontario with a BFA. Now, there is something infinitely attractive about a woman that knows her books, wouldn’t you agree?

She cares about mother nature and the human race by extension

For a long time, our glamor girl chose to go vegetarian to showcase her dedication to ensuring that the human race does not get blown away in a nefarious cosmic event…ha, got you, didn’t I? My point is, Rachel chose to live the daring life of a vegetarian in order to show empathy to animals. I mean, she can hire any chef she wants and eat at whatever hotel tickles her fancy but she chose to starve herself on pasta. She did deviate from that way of life back in 2012 but we have to cut her some slack as the decision was apparently informed by health reasons.


Girl has some strong stand

In November 2005, Amy Van Iden, who was McAdams’ publicist at the time, arranged for a little photo shoot session with Vanity Fair magazine. Nothing wrong with a photo here and there but this one event had a catch to it-Rachel was expected to parade around in the buff and have cameramen snap away gleefully. The actress learned about the plot at the last minute and fled in a huff, leaving a fired Iden in her wake. Just goes to show that the True Detective star won’t do anything just for the money and fame. Way to go girl.


A home for splendid concrete design

Over the last few years, my friends have been all over the place trying to persuade me to quit the millennial life and find a way of getting my own home. At times, we are at the local café and one of my pals goes, ‘Look ,Jon, there has never been a better time to start living in your own home. You need to go out there and find something to grow old in’. Well, I’m not growing old any soon, but I have started to think that my friends are on to something here.

Which brings us to the current situation, where I’m scrambling all over the internet looking for something I might consider putting my money on .Come to think of it, the search is not going too bad either, and soon I think I will be joining the 67% who live in the places they own.

See ,I have always been a major fan of concrete houses, and I just stumbled on this site, Unikastenhus.com whose owners design precisely that.


A stylish view of the outside

Hanging balconies do it for me. I mean, they are more than just metal, wood and concrete. To me, they are an art and a place from which to gaze at the world. The Swedish mansion on this site offers precisely that and more; the balconies I saw were really spacious too.

They come with wooden ovens

These ones have been laid out exquisitely, allowing the owner to basically just pile logs and throw them in one after the other when the house needs warming up.

A combination of Japanese and Swedish styles

The mansion on here has been designed by Ola Torrång and from what I see, this is one architect with a sense of taste. They basically take Swedish charm and combine it with Japan’s eye for simplicity, and the combination is splendid in the most devastating way possible.


The sense of dimension that comes with this approach basically won me over. Like many other features, it has been well thought-out and executed in a way that makes a mockery of cramped places.


An open floor approach

Ola Torrång seems to be a stickler for open spaces. I mean, everything in the designs has been created with space in mind. The open floor plan means that things feel fresh and that people in one room can converse with those in other rooms. If you are, say, a parent who needs to do the dishes and at the same time watch over the kids as they do their homework or just goof around, this is the type of house for you. I find the approach even more appealing because it allows the owner to sort of manipulate natural lighting and keep the room airy.

Winter garden for those who like to get their hands dirty

Fruits and vegetables are a favorite for many, and I find the idea of a garden at the back pretty appealing.

Winter garden

Mirror-filled big domes

This technical aspect is spectacular for two reasons; first, it is appealing, incredibly so, and secondly, it plays to the idea of trapping natural light to certain focal points.

At about 7 centimeters thick, and reinforced by means of rebar, I think the walls of this house assure me of a pretty fat ROI.


Eating Avocado Daily for Skin

Surprising benefits of Avocado on the skin

For a long time, Avocado was known as a product that only grew and was used in the deep areas of South Central Mexico. Over the years, its usage has spread around the world and the fruit is now available in pretty much every part of the world. It has proven as an effective remedy for a number of issues, and its effect on the skin is widely touted. While some people apply it directly on the skin, others simply eat avocado daily for their skin.

the benefits avocado has to the skin

So how does avocado help the skin?

Acts as a skin moisturizer

Those with dry skin or skin that chap at certain times of the year will be glad to know that avocados will help manage hydration on the epidermal area of the skin. This is made possible by the presence of Oleic Acid whose working is horribly complex. The compound, which is a fatty acid, is also responsible for the regeneration of skin tissue in all parts of the body.

Anti-oxidation properties

Free radicals are some of the most lethal enemies of a smooth, wrinkle and disease-free skin. Anti-oxidants in avocado beat off the efforts of these radicals and ensure that they do not get to the sensitive layers of the skin. Alpha carotenes and beta carotenes in the fruit are highly effective in providing this form of protection.

Bringing on the Vitamins

Avocado is basically an all-around fruit that provides a lot of nutrients to the body of the user, and vitamins are some of the core provisions. Vitamin E is one of those present, and it helps prevent the skin from aging prematurely to the action of radicals and environmental extremities. The Vitamin is available from a variety of sources but is best adopted into the body if the source is natural.

Persea Americana also contains Vitamin C, which is water soluble and has for decades been touted as the ultimate binding force, enabling the skin to manage it’s from, supple and flexible structure.

A soothing effect on the skin

Those who consume avocado agree that it is a natural soother and nourisher of the skin. For this effect to manifest, go with one-half of the fruit a day for a month or so.

While some people prefer to apply avocado, others will simply gobble it up or make smoothies. Still, others mash it up. Guacamole, anyone?

Generally, eating it up is the best way to tap into what the fruit can offer.
