In today’s world, people should be aware that no matter who you are, what you are, what you do, you can be a good parent if you want to, and that includes gay parents.

But if you are a parent that is regularly on the go and want to take your baby with you, having a reliable car seat is crucial.

Here are some of the best ones out there:

The first on the list is the Graco SnugRide Classic Connect 30 because if you don’t have $100 to spend on a car seat for your baby, then this is the right one for you. Obviously one of its best selling points is that it is very affordable, safe, secure and relatively easy to install in your car. The canopy will also keep the sun out of your baby’s eyes and face and another good thing is that it only weights a mere 7.3 pounds. Don’t be confused if you go to the store, there are about seven different types of SnugRide models in the market today, but this one is the most affordable. Graco sells convertible car seats for babies and toddlers. It is worth checking this brand.

Next we have the Chicco KeyFit 30 that is priced at around $189 and what is popularly considered as the “old faithful” of baby car seats. Lots of websites out there rated it as number 1! Including consumer reports and that says a lot for this baby car seat because lots of parents agree. It has high-quality build and stylish design but will not bust a hole through your pocket. It’s also easy to install with a high safety grade. It fits most cars. It also comes with a canopy for some protection from the sun and an easy to remove newborn insert.

Third we have the Britax B-Safe. We know that Britax makes absolutely the finest seats for babies, and this one is one of those. Side by side to its rival, the KeyFit, there are very little differences between the two seats. One of which is that the KeyFit is just a bit easier to install, however, the B-Safe has a better sun canopy for your baby’s protection from the sun but all in all, you just have to decide which works best for your car as per compatibility. The britax 2014 stroller is actually among our top strollers for 2015. It says a lot about this brand.

Sewing Tributes to Our Kingdom

ourkingdom sosewThere are a lot of things connected to sewing and none of them is much closer than the clothes you create from the sewing process. In the manga Our Kingdom, you can see very interesting clothing and fashion statements worn by the characters themselves. They’re clean cut and masculine although with the touch of being gay. But how can you show tribute to the art of sewing and paying homage to the manga Our Kingdom?

Well, there is no other way but by being fashionable and looking good wearing your clothes and at the same time looking like a character in the manga without breaking the bank. Here is what you need to consider.

First of all gay men love to show individuality in reference to style and fashion. But yet again, not everyone makes tons of money every month to buy designer clothes. But yet again, if you know the tricks, then you can look like a million dollars without spending as much.

Most gay people who are conscious of their budgets will, by all means, avoid high end department stores and boutiques because obviously they are too expensive if you are on a tight budget. You will even hear a lot of rumors about people gawking at you as if you are being measured by an invisible sensor of wealth right through the door. However, a lot of high end stores have factory outlets and even clearance sales that happens all year round so you can get your desired pieces for much less. If you are a bargain hunter veteran, then take it up a notch and go for a much popular store and head straight to the back end of the store to the sales rack. Who knows what goodies you might find there.

You will be surprised to find the best clothes around in the most unexpected places at the lowest possible prices. You might not know this but clothing styles, sizes and colors are being sold differently depending on the region. One place might carry bigger sizes and another will have wilder and wider color choices. This all depends on the customer demographic of that said area. This might sound too complicated and technical at first but you can easily take advantage of this. You can start looking into your region by delving into the types of clothes on display in your local shops and then moving into the stores on the next city. From here, shop at the store farthest from your taste, this is where you are going to strike gold because this is where you will find clothes that the local shoppers are not going to buy themselves.

Focus on the look of your style and clothing not the label or the brand. Everyone gets annoyed by that one person that is really trying too hard just to prove themselves or even trying to look for validation in everything they do. This also applies for style and fashion. Anyone can say that they have good taste in clothes but not to the point you are free advertisement by having the brand’s name broadcasted all over your body. That definitely is not cool and absolutely not the type you will see on Our Kingdom.

Second, you can always choose to learn how to sew your own clothes. This gives you the opportunity to make a range of clothes you are having a hard time finding in stores. Find a design and learn how to sew it. Borrow or invest in a sewing machine for beginners if you’re new to this. What better way to pay a tribute to your favorite Manga story but by being as fashionable as they are. Learn about the different sewing machines for 2015 to find out if there’s something that will suit your needs.

Safety first: the types of gun safes the body gaurds in Our Kingdom would have

ourkingdom gunsafeIf you own guns or any form of firearms, owning a gun safe is not really an option, you really have to have a gun safe. Is it part of being a responsible gun owner and a part of that is knowing proper gun safety especially if you have loved ones around the house or business and especially children. With this you will find helpful tips of what type of guns safes would work best for you and what you need to consider before buying.

First of all, the size is very important. It comes with the very important question of “will it fit?” depending on where you want to put the safe in. Some folks do not mind to having their safes in the living room, but to some who have a wife and kids where having guns around the common area of the house is not an option, this can be a problem. So to start off, you need to measure the dimensions of the safe you would like to buy. Make sure you measure everything from height, width and even depth in reference to the spot where you want to place your new safe for your guns.

Next thing to consider when buying a gun safe for your body guards in your kingdom is the weight. One question is that is it heavy enough? Because remember a measly 300 pound safe can be easy dragged out of your house with a heavy duty hand truck so ask the store on how heavy the safe is before buying. But if you do not have a choice but the 300 pound safe, it is highly recommended by experts that you bolt the safe down on to something solid. Unless you are buying a 500 pound safe, then whoever is going to try and steal it from your house is going to have a tough time dealing with it.

So now you are buying a large safe. If it is, then is it your only safe? So if it is your only safe, a large safe, then save yourself from all of the possible hassle by getting yourself an electronic lock. Because having a traditional manual lock can be a huge pain in the rear if you have an unwanted intruder in your home at the middle of the night and you need to get a hold of your gun. You need all the help you can get turning that old school dial when someone’s lurking in your house. Although if you have a smaller handgun safe, then that is going to be much easier and less of a problem. Also if you have a bedside hand safe that will serve as your quick gun access, then you are in good hands with a manual lock for increased security.

Can you bolt it down? This is a very crucial variable in deciding what type of safe you should get for your kingdom. Because if you cannot bolt it down, then you have to buy a bigger and heavier safe. A lot of newer type of house nowadays are built with tension slabs around them. So to avoid foundation issues, by all means, do not drill on the concrete foundation of your home. So save yourself all the hassle and just get a heavier safe so no drilling is required.

So consider these variables before getting a gun safe for your bodyguards in your kingdom.

Crossbows and Manga Characters

ourkingdom crossbowTo a lot of its fans, manga has to be one of the most awesome things that you can see on the internet right now. It is entertaining and at the same time relatable. Maybe that is the main appeal of manga and anime to children nowadays, they portray normal kids, doing normal things and living their normal lives but on the other hand, sometimes they have powers and unbelievable skills like in martial arts, sports, weapons, fighting the forces of evil and so on. Some even wield weapons like crossbows and that is the point of this article. Kids these takes take on interests that can take them much closer to their favorite characters like archery but using crossbows. But what are the best crossbows out there and what you need to look at to get the best out of them to become the crossbow shooting manga character you want to be.

First we have the Barnet Buck Commander Package. This is the best bow at the $600 to $700 range. The bow’s tiller is designed to accept bolts up to 22” which is combo’d with a 175 pounds of force on its limbs and a 14” power stroke and to make things short. When a bolt flies out of this bow, it goes as fast as 365 feet per second velocity which can definitely kill. So strong that when you shoot a buffalo at 50 feet away, the arrow will enter on one side and fly out on the other side. This is great for hunters and target shooters for its power. So strong, that if placed in the hands of a plain shooter, they will probably going to end up wanting to hunt as well.

Next we have the Excalibur Matrix 355. Many people who have tried to consider this bow as a monster! Given the name of the bow, it will shoot bolts out of the bow at a velocity of 355 feet per second! Thanks to its draw weight of a massive 240 pounds. Given the heavy draw weight of this beast, you will need some help in pulling it. Good thing the package comes with a rope for cocking so any capable person will be able to draw the string. It is built in with the amazingly tough Dyna Flight 97 string, this is actually being used with the best compound bows around.

With its ergo-grip innovation, it feels like you are handling a standard rifle which in turn will give you a very steady handling of the bow and will transfer the recoil directly in a straight forward line and will stop the bow from point upwards when firing – which is a huge drawback for bows out there that exceed the 220 pound draw weight.

All in all, the Matrix 355 is an overkill if you are just a casual target shooter, but it doesn’t mean it will not work well for it because it will and it is perfect. This bow is actually designed for amateur and pro hunters that is why it is made to be powerful yet accurate and stable at the same time.

Finding Your Gay Soulmate

ourkingdom psychicloveFinding the right partner in life can be very difficult for most of us, even more so if you are homosexual, sure they are some avenues out there that are readily available where you can try and check for the right one like online dating sites and clubs. But knowing these tips can give you an edge when you are seeking for your next partner and making sure he or she is the right one.

Remember that love comes to you. Even if you consult numerous psychics in person or online. There is no avoiding it. If you are the patient type, you can say that you can forget about dating sites or clubs just as long as you are really patient and not in the rush to meet someone. But be warned, once he or she is there and you are ready to love, you will have to go through all sorts of different kinds of things. After all, what you are talking about is love and no one said it was going to be easy.

Make sure you put yourself out there. You can always consult psychics about love if you want assurance or if you are in doubt. If you are really looking for a partner, then it is only inevitable that you will be involved in a popular activity that people call dating. And it is common knowledge that it will be a hassle and a drag sometimes and can even become disappointing at times. But be confident, smart, creative and a have lots of self respect and value yourself, then it is only a matter of time until you find the partner just right for you.

Referrals can be a good starting point so you can ask your friends if they know someone who is looking for a partner as well and who they think can be a good fit for you. Because friends will know what you like and don’t like since you spend a lot of time with them. You should also trust them if you want to be hooked up with someone they know that can be a good match. It is a win-win situation anyway, if you don’t hit it off with the other person, then make sure you bounce back, be in good terms with the person and make a new friend out of him or her. Please make sure you don’t blame your friends just because it didn’t work out.

Be present in social events, functions, parties and reunions. Attend even company outings. Take this as an opportunity to meet someone in the same line of work or interest because doing the same activities between two people can be a huge advantage of hitting it off. The more you attend events relating to your profession or things that interests you it will greatly improve the odds of you meeting someone who is also in the same line of work or share the same interests.

Make sure your social media profiles are, first of all, honest. Second, is that it should be interesting and engaging. This will be the first thing people will look into when they check out your profile. If you spend a few minutes of your time filling these details out like adding what you like to do, what you find funny or interesting, where you come from, chances are the right person for you will take the time to contact you and show interest. If you lie about your details, people will figure that out and will ultimately lose interest in you.

Show effort in reaching out to people out there. Show them you are interested and send engaging messages that will fuel a conversation instead of replying with one liners or the usually “what’s up?” line.
