The Electric Scooter Trend Transformation

Ride Two WHeels

Electric scooters have been around for many decades, but it has only been possible in the last few years to find a wide acceptance thanks to powerful batteries. Both in dynamic range as well as in range, modern electric scooters surpass their ancestors by far. Durable lithium-ion batteries combined with powerful three-phase AC motors ensure that the car’s driving pleasure is not compromised. In view of the high environmental compatibility, the demand for e-scooters will increase in the coming years. And with many celebrities that are accepting innovative and sustainable forms of transport, we expect that the the trend of riding electric scooters will only grow stronger.

The current offer (as of 2017) includes just over 100 different electric scooters. Important: “E-scooters” often refers to mini-scooters, which look more like a children’s scooter than a mean of transport suitable for the city. Nevertheless, such mini-scooters exist for a reason and can replace a much larger electric scooter on the ultra-short trips and they make a perfect vehicle you can take with you on the bus – besides, these are simply fun to drive! The new trend in electric scooters are more durable, more stable rides and the new 2 wheel smart e-scooter.

An important difference and decisive for the price is the type of battery used. In the e-scooters, there are usually only two types: lead acid batteries and lithium polymer batteries. There are couple of reasons why lithium battery packs are superior to the lead acid ones: they are lighter, last for much longer and hold charge. On the range and the speed, however, the type of battery has almost no effect. In the stock version of almost all electric scooters comes with a single battery, which usually has enough capacity for a range of 20 to 30 miles. A higher range is usually achieved with additional batteries.

The maximum speed is normally limited to 20 mph. This is due to the legal requirements and the required driving license. A 20mph model can be driven in most of the US without registration and the driver’s license.

Organize and Furnish Your Living Room

Home Decor is one of my passions. When I see a house I like to imagine it furnished in one way rather than another: I like to organize spaces. One of my favorite activities is to read up on furniture magazines and go in search of novelty in shops and antique markets.

Today I will give you some general suggestions on how to organize and decorate living room. These are not specific rules, but the tips I found useful over time and that can adapt to the organization and furnishing of any room in the house.

First of all, when you have to furnish a room, you have to keep in mind two fundamental factors: structural and chromatic spaces (natural light and colors of furniture). Look closely the configuration of the room: size, shape, structure (which are arranged openings, passageways…) and try to identify the areas with usage in which they are intended. Typically, in the living room there should be a dining area – whether or not there is already a room dedicated to this function in the house – a conversation area-relaxation: often in this corner, in addition to television and, sometimes, even a whole entertainment center, some other functions are required: a study area or library. Everyone knows the needs and habits of their family and focus on these issues is certainly priority over everything else.

So, given these general principles, let’s draw some simple considerations and practical suggestions. The purpose of this section is devoted to furnishing your living room: to provide useful ideas and inspirations.

First of all the advice I give to all: choose furniture that is not too big! It seems odd, but you will find that over time you need change. The decor is not static, but dynamic and changing world not only with the needs of the family, but also in tune with the taste that certainly changes and evolves together with our personality. A “live” feel to the house means to make it in tune with ourselves and then evolve it together with us. The home is a reflection of our inner selves! Welcoming someone to your home means to let them into your soul.

The budget that we have available is not really an important factor, and certainly the market value of our furniture is not either. It’s the effect that matters, the impression that the exterior reflects the interior. Have you ever wondered why certain atmosphere, certain corners or certain typical home décor photos give us the impression of intimacy and help us feel at home? Of course, it’s because it reflects our mood and the overall feeling.

As I already said, furniture should not be too large to allow moving around according to the needs in the life of a family and according to our aesthetic preference.  Also, the furniture of the smaller measurements give proper emphasis to the empty spaces, making it stand out even more.

Another recommendation is to try to “draw the shapes”. What does it mean? That means that the layout of the furniture should flow naturally and bring the sense of harmony of an environment. This is immensely facilitated by the replication of the forms. This is one of the principles of classical Renaissance style.

Always Look Good When Going Outside

Dressing well in everyday life is not easy. In the morning, when you get up early to go to work the last thing you want to worry about being perfect and looking sharp. But like all good things in life, while it requires some effort, it will pay in the long run. People will start to notice your cared-for look and your confidence when meeting new people will go through the roof. And wouldn’t it be nice to be all dolled-up when you accidentally bump into your ex?

The first rule is to rinse your face with cool water as soon as alarm clock sets off, to be immediately awake and perky with a clear head! If you are not quick in choosing clothes and cannot get dressed quickly, my advice is to organize everything the night before, choose the clothes in the morning so all you have to do is put them on. Try not to always wear jeans, a sweater and flat boots, change often and alternate your usual look with pants, blazers, trench coats and colored shirts, long and short skirts. Combine brooches, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Accessories make the two same outfits look completely different and give you a sophisticated and chic look.

To dress well you don’t need to have designer clothes, you can shop in stores low cost where you can find good quality at a reasonable price like Zara, H & M and Mango. You can take a look online, for deals and coupons. Also, there is nothing wrong with shopping on sales, even if you are buying models from last season. The most important thing for clothes is to be well-made and to fit your body and your style.

Experiment with different combinations. By dressing up every day you will get unmistakable sense of your style and will rarely find yourself in “what am I going to wear” situation. You will be absolutely confident in what looks good on you, and how to accessorize your outfit. Remember, style comes with practice.

Make-up is essential, you can’t deny it. Putting just a small amount of beauty products on your face will make you look fresh and well-rested. Wake up five minutes earlier and take the time to apply make-up. You can put a thin layer of BB cream, a slight blush on the cheeks, lip gloss and a bit ‘of mascara, easy and quickly. Avoid heavy make-up for the day, go by the famous rule “less is more”.
