Aren’t we living in a crazy time? Who ever thought we would have a pandemic and be quarantine? I have been furloughed from my job and staying home for the last few weeks. I have been wondering how to keep myself busy. Activities, like internet surfing or streaming an endless amount of shows and movies, keep me entertained, but it also puts a considerable amount of strain on the eyes and the body.  What are have you been doing with all your extra time? Buying a few chicks to raise? Making more meals? Or maybe a new hobby?

I have found something that is fun and unique alternative to repetitive eye strain. Diamond Art Club makes creative and affordable art kits painting with “diamonds” to create beautiful works of art in hours or days, that anyone can do at home. There is very little learning curve to learn how to make designs, and it’s a fantastic activity that the whole family can get involved in, or do individually as a passive hobby.

The Diamond Art Club crafting kits come with everything you need to complete a beautiful picture. It comes with the printed canvas, diamonds, tray, applicator and grip.

This paint-by-numbers style artwork uses beautiful sparkling resin diamonds that you craft onto the canvas to make stunning, intricate designs. The artwork is printed on the canvas; all you have to do is follow the pattern and make your masterpiece shine!

Here is mine so far – I love working on it.


Diamond painting is a wonderful way to reveal your artistic side, even if there’s not a single crafty bone in your body. Using an applicator tool and wax, you scoop up diamonds and set them on an adhesive canvas which features a color-coded chart. In other words, it’s so easy, even a child could do it! But even experienced crafters feel the draw to this mesmerizing hobby. It is a great way to spend time relaxing.

You can purchase the kit I am working on “Read me a Bedtime Story” or any of the Diamond Art Club Kits Here. Each Diamond Art Club kit includes everything you need to create a dazzling work of art at home, including all supplies and accessories. Ready to get started with diamond art painting?

A Solution for Thinning Hair

According to the American Hair Research Society, approximately 50% of women will experience hair loss by the age of 50. Certain forms of hair extensions offer a way to disguise thinning hair, but not all types are good for thin hair.

The most optimal form of hair extensions for thinning hair are tape-in extensions. These are applied by a professional hair stylist, who uses special tape to adhere two-inch wefts of hair extensions to natural hair. These extensions are lightweight and thin, so they do not cause damage or strain to existing hair, and they don’t require the use of harmful chemicals or products.

Non-Permanent Hairstyle Change

Those looking to switch up their hairstyle without a permanent change to length can use hair extensions to achieve a new look. There are several types of non-permanent hair extensions, and many hair extensions salons nyc offer professional application services.

Clip-ins are temporary hair extensions that are applied by attaching wefts of hair extensions to the natural hair using clips. These hair extensions come in a variety of lengths and colors, and a professional stylist can help to find clients the best clip-in hair extensions for their hair color and texture.

Protective Hairstyle

For clients who want to protect their natural hair, weave hair extensions are a great option. This type of hair extension is applied by a stylist, who tightly braids the client’s natural hair before sewing hair extension wefts into the braids. This is a protective hairstyle, as the client’s natural hair is kept in braids, while the hair extensions are styled, helping to protect the natural hair from heat damage.

It is suggested that clients work with a professional hair extension salon in order to find the best hair extensions for their hair type and goals.

Sometimes we all get in a bit of a slump in life, and that there are so few things to look forward to. And when it gets to the point that it’s your partner’s birthday and that is the most exciting time of the year, this is when you need to start thinking precisely what to do to shake your life up. We all get bored, and if you are reading this suffering from a bit of modern malaise, let’s get you up and out of this!
Play More
We get so serious as we age, but what would the eight-year-old version of you say? Sometimes we get bored with life because we just don’t have fun anymore. So go, have fun, enjoy something for once! And while it may look a bit untowards to climb in a kiddies ball pool, do something different that’s more in keeping with the social constraints of life. They are adventure holiday packages that travel firms like G Adventures provide where you can go explore mountainous regions of foreign countries and truly get to grips with what nature has in store. Doing something new and exciting is going to feed into your sense of play and fun.
What Have You Always Wanted To Do?
As adults, we build up our regrets like dust accumulates on our window sills. What have you really wanted to do in life that you never had the opportunity to do? Some people want to go see the sunrise in Shanghai, others just want to go skydiving, and others just want to go pole dancing! If you are that bored with life, there’s so much outside your dust-accumulated window that you can do, so there’s no excuse to be bored, ever!
Learn Something New
An instrument, a language, a skill… If you find yourself talking about the same old things with your friends when you go out, it’s time to make conversation a bit more interesting, but make life more interesting for you. New skills appear to be merely a resume-bolstering exercise these days, but do something for you. You get added bonus points that learning new things is the way to keep your brain young.
Laugh!
We get older, we get more serious, we display concerns about the electricity bill and the state of the world. It could be argued there’s a lot less to laugh about these days, and many would be inclined to agree with you. Instead, take the Doctor Hibbert approach and find reasons to laugh. Whether it’s something funny on Netflix, get on youtube, or even go to one of the many stand up comedy clubs near you. Laughing is good for you, it releases feel-good hormones, and if you haven’t laughed properly for a while, you will feel instantly better for it!
You’re not alone, we all feel that creeping sense of boredom in life. But it’s you that needs to do something about it, so go on an adventure, have a laugh, do what you know inherently makes you happy. Because that’s why you’re bored, it’s because you’re not happy!
