Smartphone Friendly Gloves


It's winter. The temps are below zero and you have been waiting at the bus stop for more than fifteen minutes now. Your freezing cold. Thankfully, you didn't forget to wear your beanie and your gloves. Suddenly, your phone rings. You want to ignore but sees that it's an important call that you need to take. So you have no choice but to remove your gloves so you can answer your phone. The call takes about five minutes. After that, your hands are so cold and numb you can't feel them anymore. 

Familiar eh? Do you ever find it annoying whenever you have to remove your gloves just to answer a text message or a call from your smartphone? But there's now a solution to this dilemma: smartphone friendly gloves that allow you to use your smartphone without having to remove them. I found these really nice touchscreen friendly gloves at Esprit.de and I just thought: this would  be perfect for the husband.


And there's a pair that's perfect for women too:


I just love them! Too bad I won't be here when it really gets too cold as I'll be away in a sunny, warm and tropical place. :)

That Loud, Noisy Crash...


It is difficult for me to relate to heavy metal music... I know heavy metals, but only in the chemical point of view, Hehe! :) But the loud, noisy, crash sound of aggressive hard metal, metallic rock or whatever you call it actually gives me a headache. Still, there are people who are into this extreme, musical genres and well, one just needs to respect that. 

If you happen to be one of those enthusiasts and are looking for a gift for yourself or for someone you know, you can find affordable paiste 17 rude wild crash at guitar center. The Paiste Rude wild crash is a cymbal that is meant to produce that strong and wild crash in aggressive playing styles. If you want to make some noise this Christmas and New Year, this could also be a good idea. Let's just hope no neighbors will go knocking and complaining at your door.

Winterwonderland at the Stuttgarter Weihnachtsmarkt


The Stuttgarter Weihnachtsmarkt or Christmas Market here in Stuttgart officially opened last Wednesday, the 27th of November. It will run until the 23rd of December, one day before the eve of Christmas. I am sure it will be another spectacular and wonderful experience for those who believe in the magic of Christmas. My little girl is especially excited since she is one of those with pure hearts, full of wonder and innocence. Even the adults will find themselves amazed in the wonder of Christmas and cannot help but be in a cheerful mood as they visit the Christmas market.

In case it snows heavily, it will not be a problem since the city has snow brooms in the ready to clear the roads and the pavements. Plus there will always be warm food and hot wine (Gl├╝hwein) for those who find themselves hungry while looking around shopping for unique gifts for friends and loved ones or for beautiful home Christmas decors and adornments.

So many things have happened this year (some happy, some tragic and sad) and I think a visit to the Christmas market will help to bring back the Christmas cheer in our hearts.
