Trip to Portugal

Portugal was in our list for some time and it surely did not disappoint. We visited Lisbon and Porto and definitely got more than expected. Friendly people, live ambiance, a rich history and great places to visit everywhere you turn, not to mention the food and wine. The street art scene is vibrant with some of the coolest pieces we have seen. We coped some of our sneakers on the way and took some photos near the iconic Miradouro Graffiti in Fado, Lisbon. This is one of the best places in the world to visit and will surely be an unforgettable experience for every person no matter the age.

Rad shoe meets right foot - How to choose a good shoe

A shoe should generally be flexible in the front, have good materials which allow the adequate perspiration of the foot. Unfortunately modern trends sometimes supersede comfort and well being such as most trends today opt for very padded soles that do not allow for the natural movement of the foot to bend as it is supposed to.

The little island of Gozo

Traveling in the Mediterranean it's easy to skip this 8 mile island. The sister island of Malta sits just north of the mainland. It couldn't be helped but to take some photos and have some fun with our Shell model landing on the hilltop of Gelmus in the capital, Victoria. On this tiny island of roughly 30,000 inhabitants one can also notice a small skate park, although no skaters were present at the time we took the photos. With its' all year round blue sky weather there is lots of potential to develop and promote skateboarding along it's aquatic sports and scuba diving activities held almost around the entirety of the island.

When it comes to footwear everyone has their preference and taste. Attracting the desired sex however puts much more emphasis on the look and style of the shoe.  From time immemorial clothing has always tried to adapt to the exigencies of those times, after all conformity is something which we as humans strive for to live and be accepted by our brethren.  However, recent studies have put this to the test. It has been found that a unique, non-conformist footwear style earns more points when being judged by a potential mate. One explanation for this is a perceived level of independence to pursue a different path and having to bear the brunt of this action. In other words the status...

Air purifying plants that require little care

Most of us know that maintaining a house is often arduous as it is, but only some are aware of the fact that a typical house normally carries a lot of pollutants which are ignored. NASA’s finding suggests a couple of plants that can do the job we cannot do ourselves, that is purify the air of our homes. Among the toxins these plants are able to absorb are benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, ammonia, xylene and toluene, and although a combination of plants is ideal to purify, according to our own experience some are really easy to grow and require only a little maintenance.  Some of these house plants include Peace lily, English ivy, Red-edged dracaena, Spider plant, Boston fern, Snake...
