Merry Christmas 2016 & Happy New Year 2017

Another year passing by, it’s that time of the year to celebrate and cherish, and….for New Year Resolutions. 🙂 Yes yes, I know I haven’t been able to spend much time updating this blog but it doesn’t mean I didn’t accomplish some of my goals from last year. In fact I have been quite busy joggling with my career, family, kids and my passion of fashion.

There are so much to talk about but I on top of all, I promise to deliver more content to my readers. I Love Fitting Room blog will publish regular content as we entering the New Year of 2017, that’s a promise. Oh boy it’s getting close to 2020 already. Isn’t that scary?!

One of the most important things to me this year is the bound between my busband and I continued to grow. Yes it’s so easy for love to fade after getting married especially after many years being together. People bound to take others for granted after a while. However we are all blood and flesh built with emotions. We all feel weak from time and time and need comforts from each other. Those are the opportunies for us to grow our relationships. One of the differences between some failed relations and some thrived ones is whether you still try and whether the other party still appreciate. At least that what my life experiences have been.

Before we got married, my husband Tim used to do a lot of small things to makes me happy, and I in return do too. That habbit stopped for a few years after we got married, him got buried by work and had our daughter Nickie. Now that we are no longer having sleepless nights to care Nickie (good girl), he started doing those small things again, which I really appreciate. Just couple days ago he printed out the following Christmas image and put in my purse to suprise me. That’s so sweet and brightened my whole week. Small things like this relaly make you happy, at least I’m that kind of woman. 🙂 Here’s the digital image in case you want to do the same thing to your loved ones, and thanks for sayingimages for making those original images.

Tips on Choosing An Inflatable Paddle Board for Girls

In the recent past paddle boarding has incredibly gained popularity across the world, and once the sport’s bug bites, all you will want is to buy your own. Fortunately, the inflatable paddle boards have made the sport accessible to everyone. Inflatable paddle boards have numerous advantages compared to the traditional boats. For instance, there are more durable, affordable, versatile and easier to store and transport. Furthermore they can be used for various activities such as fishing, racing, for fitness sessions, etc.

However, choosing the right inflatable board can be an overwhelming task especially for a beginner.

Here are some tips that you may find useful when purchasing the best inflatable paddle boards

Activity

You need to think about the type of paddle boarding you will be doing. For instance, you may want to use it for leisurely outings and fitness sessions on calm water or medium-sized ocean waves. Factors to consider in that case would be maneuverability and stability. For other activities such as racing you need to consider efficiency and stability of your inflatable board.

Material Used

If the inflatable paddle board is used for hunting or fishing, you may be required to carry some sharp tools such as hooks or knives with you. Hence, when buying an inflatable board for such activities it is recommendable to go for the ones that are tough enough for such activities.

Width of the Board

Board Width is a very vital factor in determining stability. Wide boards (31” or wider) are more stable compared with narrow boards which makes easier to stand on them. However, they tend to be slower than their counter parts. On the other hand, narrow boards may be less stable, but faster.

Board Length

When considering the length of your paddle board, it is vital to think about the place you want to paddle. Racing on a calm lake and riding high waves in the ocean are different types of paddle-boarding and need different boards for optimal performance.

Volume and Weight Capacity

An inflatable paddle board should suit your body size. The board needs to displace right amount of water for your weight for stability. Volume of the paddle, usually expressed in liters, indicates the ability of the board to float with weight on it. Higher volume means the board will support more weight.

Weight capacity is another important factor and is normally expressed in pounds. Ensure you know your weight capacity. This is because if you are very heavy for the paddle board, it will ride deeper in the water making it difficult to paddle.

Hull Type

The hull (or body) type of the inflatable paddle board will determine its performance in water. There are two main types of hull:

  • Planning Hull

This type of hull is wide and flat and is performs best in the ocean waves. This type of hull is recommendable for beginners. They are more stable and versatile for leisure paddling.

  • Displacement Hull

These types of hull feature a sharp bow or nose like that of a canoe or kayak. Displacement hull is designed to slice through the water with enhanced efficiency. They are best for racing and paddling over long distances.

It is advisable to do a thorough research on the best inflatable paddle boards that best suits your needs prior to making the purchase.
