Buying a mattress is never easy.

Buying a mattress on the internet is almost impossible.

I mean think about it.

If your going to be purchasing a product where you will spend 50 percent of your life in, you want to make sure its damn good quality.

It is for this exact reasons that I had such a big struggle a few months ago when I moved into my new flat. All I wanted to do was buy mattress online! I didn’t want to get hundreds of people telling me about what was good and what was bad. I just wanted to buy a simple, affordable mattress, that would suit my body and lifestyl.

After much searching I finally got a recommendation from a friend to check out bedworks, a fantastic Australian mattress company. After going to their site and chatting with their friendly support I eventually decided on a pillow top mattress that was perfect for me in every way possible.

Go check out Bedworks guys!

When it comes to insurance in New Zealand, most people cower and wince immediately. (Just look at posts like this http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/68820807/Insurance-when-the-worst-almost-happens)

We are constantly bombarded with ads from insurance companies, and when we finally do decide to set time aside to complete the god awful task of insurance it usually takes days and days of pain and anguish to complete.

Recently I had a friend that wanted to purchase some health insurance (he get sick often, so he thought it would be a good idea).

He is a young person like myself, and he wanted to work with a business that worked well with young people, as he had heard horror stories about the big insurance companies in NZ that treat young people like crap.

After a simple Google search of insurance brokers nz we came across the website of; www.finsol.co.nz

We reached out to them and we heard back from one of their reps within under an hour! Ten points for customer service right off the bat.

They then walked us through the very easy process of finding the best insurance company for our needs/wants. The whole process only took a few hours and my friend was more then stoked!

We highly recommend you check out finsol.co.nz if you are in the need of insurance in NZ

A self illuminating exit sign is a clear and vividly visible exit sign which directs people toward and through the appropriate emergency exits from your building, in the event of an emergency resulting in a loss of general power and/or interior lighting. In the many big business and industrial buildings which exist today with interior rooms and long stretches of corridor — places which receive no natural lighting, due to a lack of windows or other exposure to the outside — this is a critical function towards ensuring your visitors and employees’ safety in the event of an emergency.
Speaking broadly, there are two primary types of self illuminating exit signs which have proven to be the most popular in existence today. These are photoluminescent exit signs, and radioluminescent exit signs. They differ slightly in the principles on which they function, and in terms of where and how they might be most efficiently used — as well as in lifespan, although even the comparatively short-lived radioluminescent exit sign will still last for upwards of twenty years (a photoluminescent exit sign can continue to function, potentially, for centuries).
A self illuminating exit sign, as the name would suggest, works through the function of chemical properties that will never simply break down or stop working. It requires no monitoring, is always “on,” and — most importantly to its desired function — it requires no connection to the electrical grid, nor any externalized power source of any kind. It doesn’t even need batteries. Aside from saving money through decades or more of operation without an electrical connection, this makes the self illuminating exit sign simple and easy to install: only basic tools are necessary, and the services of an electrician are not required. It also makes the signs self-contained, which means they can be build of impact-resistant and anti-corrosive materials, and be completely protected from outside environmental considerations or tampering.
Typically, all you need to do to “maintain” a self illuminating exit sign is to occasionally dry-wipe it, to ensure that it remains unobscured by dust or other particulate material. The odd cleaning spray — followed by a wipe — couldn’t hurt, but even this much effort isn’t a regular necessity.
How It Works
The two aforementioned types of self illuminating exit sign function on similar basic principles. The photoluminescent exit sign consists of glowing phosphorescent letters on a starkly contrasting background. It requires exposure, under normal conditions of building operations, to an external light source — from which it will absorb photons. This requirement, recommended to be at least five foot-candles of illumination to which the face of the sign is direction exposed, makes the photoluminescent exit sign unsuitable for all-night operation, and for areas which normally receive less than optimal illumination. In the event of a sudden blackout or general loss of power, however, a photoluminescent sign which has been appropriately located will release its stored photos gradually over time — its illumination may, depending upon how it is manufactured, last for several hours, and be clearly visible from up to seventy-five feet away.
A radioluminescent exit sign involves the use, typically, of tritium — a natural isotope of hydrogen gas which exists within the Earth’s atmosphere. Tritium slowly sheds excess electrons as it breaks down into standard hydrogen. These electrons, called “beta electrons,” are so low-energy that they may be stopped by a single sheet of paper — their shock-resistant glass tubing, and the sign’s industrial-grade, impact-resistant plastic construction are more than sufficient to do the job. Should the shatter-resistant plastic and the multiple interior tubes of a radioluminescent exit sign all be broken at once, someone standing directly over the sign would receive less radiation than they would normally experience naturally over the course of a few months — equivalent to the difference in radioactivity involved in moving from a sea level location to an altitude of approximately five thousand feet.
As the tritium gives off electrons, they interact with the phosphorescent coating on their glass tubes, causing a constant and steady glow. The illumination of a radioluminescent exit sign is typically weaker than that given off by a phosphorescent exit sign, but they require no external light source — and they won’t fade after a few hours.
With the half-life of tritium gas, a radioluminescent exit sign can potentially last from ten to twenty years.

Choosing a wedding photographer is not an easy task.

You don’t know what style of photos you want, where the location of the photos will be shot, who you want to be in the photos, and so many other problems that spring to mind.

So to hopefully take a little bit of the stress out of choosing a photographer, I have called upon my good friend Jeremy who runs a Wedding Photographers Auckland company to give us a few short points about choosing the best wedding photographer.

1 – Talk about costs before the big day. I have heard so many horror stories from fellow photographers that take the most beautiful photos of a clients wedding, pack up there gear, and send them an invoice a few days later, only to have the client scream in shock at how expensive the price is.

First of all I would like to say that wedding photography is no easy gig. First off our equipment can easily be worth up to ten thousand dollars alone, as we want to get the highest quality of photos for your wedding. Secondly it has taken us literally years of trial and practice to learn the arts and the techniques to shoot the most beautiful wedding photos possible.

So if the price is high please don’t complain. However it is VERY important that you talk with the photographer before your big day about the price of your wedding photos. That way you can choose a price point that fits your wants and needs in the best way possible.

2 – Create examples of wedding photos that you like. This enables the photographer to truly crawly inside your mind and understand what you want for your Wedding. If you don’t provide examples the wedding photographer will be “shooting fish in a barrel” so to speak, and he can’t read your mind. Be specific so that you can get the best wedding photos possible!

Thanks so much Jeremy. Once again if you want to contact Jeremy and his team just click this link; http://simple-weddings.co.nz/contact-us/.
