What Gear Do I Need To Play Roller Derby

I’ve always loved my roller skates; there’s something in the way how these small wheels make you fly on the streets without having to move your feet that much. As a little girl, a few falls now and then gave me a number of bruises, but I learned how to skate like a pro, so it was definitely worth it. Today, I still skate during weekends in the park, and the thing that makes me most happy is that there are a lot of older people ( like in their 40’s and 50’s even) that skate! And why wouldn’t they, skating is such a great exercise for balance and endurance, plus it is an excellent stress reliever. Continue reading

Plant Nurseries – What You Need To Know To Choose The Best Plants

The first thing most people notice when they walk into a plant nursery is that plants are available in 3 forms. This consists of burlap wrapped which is usually bigger trees and shrubs, bare root which includes hedge plants and roses, and in containers for smaller shrubs, trees, and flowers.

Plant nurseries grow different plants in different ways for many reasons. Trees and shrubs are usually grown in fields as they can not fully grow in a container.

What to Choose When You Buy Bar Stools

Me and my boyfriend recently moved into a new apartment, a penthouse on the 14 floor in one of Melbourne’s freakishly tall buildings. I’m not the type of person that suffers from height phobias, but for the sake of security and speed of running towards the exit, I’d rather stay on the lower floors. But, the thing about penthouses in Melbourne is that the view you get from those glass walls is worth every single dollar and every drop of sweat when you look down from the perfect balcony.
