Best Sci-Fi Movies of 2014

Now that 2014 is well over half a year behind us, all the best sci-fi movies of 2014 are available on DVD, so rather than going to the cinema, why not curl up with some popcorn and a DVD this evening? I love this genre and managed to see plenty of movies last year. My husband doesn’t mind the genre but it’s me who is the real fan, so I’m going to share with you my top sci-fi movie recommendations!

5 Great Websites about Space

Like many people, I’m fascinated by space and sometimes I like to find new websites about space and wonder at it all. If you think about it, the Earth is just one tiny dot in the middle of a seemingly unlimited universe and, although we have some idea of what is out there, at least closest to us, there is so much we don’t know! I find the enormity of it all to be a thing of wonder, and now that technology is being developed at such a speedy rate, the space photos and new information available is incredible.

When I see a headline in the newspaper about space or a link to look at photos, I often click through out of curiosity, but something that can be frustrating if you’re into all things space-related but not a rocket scientist is, well, a lot of it is hard to get your head around, or to make head or tail of! Not all websites about space explain it with amateurs in mind either.

I can explain what a planet, sun, star, and universe is. I know the difference between a meteor and a meteoroid, and I very much enjoy sci-fi (which is entertaining but can still be educational), but give me a technical article about space or show me complex websites about space and I won’t have a clue.

Review of Every Yankee Candle Tart Scent


FullSizeRenderI love Yankee Candle Tart Wax Melts and can’t seem to stop buying them! Since I have tried pretty much every scent, I thought I would share my Yankee Candle Tart scent reviews with you, to inspire you to try new scents and discover a new favorite perhaps.

I have an electronic tart burner as well as a tea-light one, and my husband and I both like trying new fragrances in our home. The first time I ever tried using wax tart melts was when I found a bargain set in one of the local shops here in Holland including a tea-light burner and a few small melts.

They were unbranded and didn’t smell that appealing but I liked the concept and began to wonder what quality wax melts would smell like, which is when I started to order directly from Yankee Candle.

Perhaps you live close to a Yankee Candle store or even somewhere like Bed, Bath and Beyond where they sell them, in which case you can simply wander in and sniff to your heart’s content. However, sniffing the melts through the packaging isn’t the same as smelling them burning, so I am going to try and describe all the scents for you, to help you make your choice.

swarovski-cat-collarSwarovski crystals are beautiful and if you are looking for an extra special collar for your feline friend then why not buy Swarovski cat collars? Costing less than you might imagine, these lovely collars will look gorgeous on your cat.

Pet ID Tags for Dogs and Cats

If your pet ever gets lost then having an ID tag is an absolute must, so you can be reunited quickly and relatively easy.
