Make Your Own Vacay Plans!

I have been lucky to have gone on several vacations in past years, and found that one of the easiest ways to plan your travel is to do it yourself. Now don’t get me wrong, travel agents are full of resources, but if you want to save time and money, you can do this by yourself. There may be the occasional actual call into where you are going just to ensure confirmation, but in the end your travel can be planned completely by you! No fears, no worries, just get in there on the internet and do it!

First and foremost, determine your destination, i.e., Waikiki, Hawaii! I will use this as an example because we’ve been there on several occasions and are definitely going back! Once your destination is determined, think about location of the hotel, is it near the beach, near shopping, etc. Those hotels a few blocks away from the beach are less expensive and also typically include a kitchenette. These hotels are also closer to the market place where you can catch a quick bite to eat, listen to music, and shop, shop, shop! Once you’ve done your homework on the internet by viewing the various hotels, book it right then and there online. Although package deals can be awesome, sometimes they are not deal-worthy, and can end up costing you more.

Next check out the excursions! Do you want to swim with the dolphins, check out history at Pearl Harbor, take a little cruise, learn surfboarding, take a moped ride, go to a Luau, or just float in the Pacific! The hotel you stay in will have the information you need to set up a great excursion. What no plans for excursions, then hit the beach and go on a Catamaran ride for $20. Money for this ride is well spent.

Thirdly, get the plane reservations. For example, Hawaiian Airlines does offer deals roundtrip on occasion. We liked this aircraft the best for its comfortability and kind service, not to mention the introduction videos shown introducing and welcoming you to Hawaii. However, there are multiple other airlines that do a great job. Just reserve as early as possible to save money.

Once you arrive on the island, you can pick your choice of a shuttle to your hotel for about $20, or rent a car. I recommend the rental car so you can see the island, but if you just want to get to your hotel pronto, take the shuttle, and downtown they have rental cars, this way you save money by not having to rent the car the full trip.

Remember, it is very easy to do all of this online, and if you are really a great web crawler and want to either get married, or renew your vows, do that online too! We did!

Skip Hop Pronto Diaper Changer Kit Review

I prefer to use Skip Hop Diaper Changer Kit than to bring a big diaper bag. Changing diapers can really cause you too much trouble especially when you are travelling.

Have you experienced going out to the mall with your baby stroller, big diaper bag and a bunch of grocery stuff? And suddenly you need to change your baby’s diaper? If you are caught up in this kind of situation I bet you need some advice from a concerned mom like me.

Skip Hop Pronto Diaper Changer Kit is the answer! It is a portable kit that has a detachable changing pad, and a mesh pocket that can hold up to 6 diapers. It has padded area to support the head while you are changing diaper. It also has a front pocket where you can put other stuff and a lot of space for wipes (it is pretty much air tight). You can even put extra bodysuits because the pocket provides a big space. You can attach it to your stroller, diaper bag or simply wear it on your wrist.

After using Skip Hop kit for 3 months the seams proved to be well sewed and the bag itself is durable. The pad is thick and easy to wipe, I have never seen a product as wonderful as this. Changing diaper can be so messy but with Skip Hop kit, no need to worry about the mess. Just pull out your kit and you are ready to go.

I have never written any product review but after using Skip Hop Pronto Diaper Changing Kit, I thought of sharing my experience to all the moms out there.

Electrolux – The Quiet Vacuum Cleaner

While other vacuum manufacturers make lots of noise about their products, Electrolux has quietly gone about making some of the best vacuum cleaners on the market today.

Electrolux vacuum cleaners are amongst the top rated but this comes as no surprise for those who own one. The range of vacuums made by Electrolux mean that everyone can find an Electrolux that suits their cleaning requirements perfectly. If you want terrific suction power from one of the lightest vacuum cleaners on the market, Electrolux make it. If you suffer from allergy and want a top quality HEPA filter vacuum cleaner, Electrolux make. If you want one of the quietest vacuum cleaners you can buy, Electrolux make it. If you want the world’s most advanced vacuum cleaner – one that operates all by itself – you’ve guessed it, Electrolux make it.

If you want to protect your family from allergens then the Electrolux Oxygen canister vacuum is for you. There are a few models to choose from and they come with a HEPA air filtration system, which reduces emission of dust and allergens by 99.97%. In fact, Electrolux Oxygen vacuums are so good the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association recommends the Electrolux air cleaner Oxygen Z7030. The Electrolux Oxygen 3 Ultra canister even comes with automatic electronics that monitor the floor type and adjust the vacuum accordingly.

One of the quietest vacuum cleaners you can buy is an Electrolux ultra quiet Harmony Canister Vacuum. The Harmony comes with soft wheels, a powerful, sound-insulated motor and a low-noise floor nozzle. And it should be no surprise that the Electrolux Harmony vacuum cleaner comes with the superior filtration of a HEPA H12 filter. You also get the innovative, self-closing design of an Electrolux s-bag to capture 99.97% of dust and airborne allergens. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how quiet a high-powered a vacuum cleaner can be.

The Electrolux Pronto vacuum cleaner is probably one of the most powerful stick vacuum cleaners on the market. With the push of a button, The Electrolux Pronto transforms into a powerful hand vacuum with a built-in crevice tool, allowing you to reach everywhere.

If you want the most advanced vacuum cleaner in the world then the Electrolux Trilobite is for you. Introduced in 2001, the Electrolux Trilobite was the world’s first fully automatic domestic vacuum cleaner. Its release created a sensation and it was voted as being among the 100 most innovative designs of the century. Other manufacturers have tried to copy, but their efforts are poor in comparison. The Electrolux Trilobite remains the most technically advanced vacuum cleaner on the market today. The Trilobite has an onboard computer that actually learns the layout of your home. Other machines merely bump and then turn in some random direction, not so the Trilobite. As it travels around your home it is building and map so that the next time you use it, it uses the plan of your home to vacuum your floors efficiently and thoroughly. You can set the cleaning times in advance, so that it goes to work whilst you are at work. The design of the Trilobite is slender enough to travel under most beds and sofas. The round shape prevents it from getting stuck in corners and has enabled Electrolux to position built-in sensors around a 180-degree field of vision. This way, the Trilobite can spot even the most delicate of objects and avoid them by a few millimeters.

Electrolux has pioneered the development of the vacuum cleaner. Electrolux vacuum cleaners have been given top ratings by consumers over and over again. With its commitment to leading edge technology consumers will be buying Electrolux vacuum cleaners for many years to come.
