Getting more into my photography


I’ve been getting more and more into my photography lately. I’ve been trying to revive the dead creativity I used to have before my son was born. He’s now the artist in the house I guess, but I’ve been so bored with being online and doing nothing but surfing people’s shopping carts (formerly called blogs) and playing video games.

I’ve been so inspired since I got Kloey but I’ve not been able to do much about it because the drive hasn’t been there. It’s all just ideas. And I have yet to find the proper place to share it ’cause no one who usually comes around here seems to be all that interested. I have been posting on DeviantArt and that seems to be the only real place to do it.

People also wonder why and have been asking, why take photos of a doll/toy when you have a kid and could be taking photos of him. Well, to answer you, I do. I have tons of photos of my son. I just don’t post them up for the world to see. Why? Well, have you watched Law & Order? Have you heard of all the sicko’s out there who steal people’s photos and call them their own? Or the perverts who collect children’s pictures and do god knows what with them? That’s why!! Yea I post one every now and then. But that’s about it. That’s all you get. Every now and then. Sorry to disappoint.

I’ve also started to get into sewing and such. I borrowed my Mom’s machine and am slowly learning how to use it. ;) I’m still kinda afraid of it ’cause I’m the kinda person who will get hurt doing ANYTHING. Go me!! But I’ve already made a skirt and my husband says it came out pretty damn good for my first try. :D And I agree. I just wish it had turned out how I had wanted it to. So I’ma try again when I get some extra money’s for more fabric. I also wanna try making my own clothing. Hehe. I’ll probably suck super hard but hey, it’s all about learning, right?!

This blog is also due for a makeover. I think so anyway. So don’t be surprised if it goes POOF for a bit. It just means I’m off in the background tinkering with ideas I have. I’ll eventually be back xD

Playing Barista with a Home Espresso Maker

Whether you are having friends over your place or just spending time with family a cup of coffee is always appreciated. Espresso machines are the modern way to make a good tasting, quality coffee. Growing up I was not the coffee type of person. However, moving to college and then joining the working class it grew on me gradually. Now I can brag of being a barista-quality coffee-making guru. I always find an excuse to play barista in my own kitchen except people do not queue. The feeling when everyone compliments the taste of your coffee is priceless. Going through below home espresso maker reviews 2016 you will have a chance to join the elite class of baristas.


The increase in trends of these innovative machines has considerably lessened the cafe queuing. The many brands available in the market make it crucial to do a background research whether getting your first machine or replacing your old one. I have tried several espresso makers and sampled the best. To top the list is Breville Bes870xl Barista espresso maker. It includes a removable two-liter water tank, in-build grinder and volumetric control. It automatically adjusts brewing temperature to give high quality espresso. However, the control settings and pressure gauge might be hard for first users but it gets better with time.

Cuisinart DCC-3200 programmable coffeemaker comes with a state-of-the-art technology to brew best quality and flavors of coffee. It has 1-4 cup setting and it’s a self-cleaning machine. Automatically shuts off and adjust temperatures. Unlike the Breville Bes870xl, its water tank is not removable. Nespresso Inissia espresso maker had to make it in my list. It has a fast preheating time of about 25 seconds and allows insertion/removal of capsules. Through the programmable button, you can choose to make either espresso, Americano, lattes or lungo. The machine automatically shuts off after 9 minutes of being active. This affordable Nespresso has a 24-ounce removable water tank.

To end my post I include De’Longhi 15 Bar Pump espresso and cappuccino maker together with Nespresso Pixie espresso maker. They offer great coffee flavors and can be easily cleaned. Whether you want to brew an espresso, latte, cappuccino or anything, you ought to consider the machine suitability. Keep in mind that expensive products do not necessarily translate to great performance. With the home espresso makers above considered, the coffee will certainly impress you.
