The Singing Waiters London

singing-waitersMost music festivals are for obvious reasons being held in the hot summer months.

But summer isn’t just a time for festivals and similar outdoor events, it is also where most people plan to have their wedding.

So let’s take this opportunity to talk about one important thing when it comes to these types of festive occasions, and this is the musical entertainment for your guests!

In recent times, at least here in the United Kingdom, surprise entertainment is all the craze.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing that good surprise entertainment act  can really make every type of event unforgettable. One of the most popular surprise entertainment acts in the UK are The Singing Waiters London.

They stand out from many other surprise entertainers in many ways. One difference is that The Singing Waiters all have professional training. This is clearly evident when one is attending their shows. Their vocal and dance performances are excellent and they can offer a wider range of different musical styles as compared to some other entertainers.

It may be true that booking a world-class entertainment act like The Singing Waiters London for a family event such as a wedding or anniversary would likely cost somewhat more as compared to hiring a DJ or a typical wedding band. On the other hand, it appears as if many people who are planning for such often once-in-a-lifetime events are willing to spend a lot of money on anything else for the event, such as for foods and drinks since they obviously want to make this day as special and unforgettable is even possible.

With musical entertainment playing quite a big role to make such an occasion outstanding, it seems that folks are realizing that it doesn’t make sense to save money there, from all things. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. And who would  want their wedding or anniversary day being spoilt by an amateurish band or bad wedding singers?

Real Estate Agents Using Drones To Scout Properties

Residents in Sydney are getting angry and voice concerns about their privacy: Real estate agents in the city use remote controlled drones to scout new properties. A Mosman woman reported a flying object flying right in front of her window. After she called the police she was shocked to hear that it was a real estate drone that was looking for properties in the area.

What’s worse: This practice is entirely legal as long as the drone operators have approval. ‘If you’re a real estate agent and using a drone to take photographs of clients’ homes, you should either be using an approved remotely piloted aircraft operator, of which there are about 110, or you need to get an operators certificate and approval from CASA,’ Mr Gibson said.

Despite those requirements, the fact that privacy may be violated doesn’t seem to be a major concern for the authorities in Sydney. So for all who live there, don’t be surprised if you see a drone fly by and possibly looking into your home.

Opportunities To Stay Fit Can Be A Major Factor For Your New Home’s Location

When we move, we often think about many different things that can play a role with such a decision. For most of us, criteria such as the proximity to work, schools in the area and shopping opportunities can be a factor that decides whether a home’s new location would really be suitable. Most will likely agree that it’s such things that can in fact decide over the actual value of a new home.

Aside from thinking about education and work, increasingly more people today look at health and fitness too when they’re deciding on a new place to live. For some, a nice park nearby where they can go walking may be all they need to get their daily fix for fitness and health. Others may base their decision on a home purchase on whether suitable places like fitness studios or gyms are nearby.

Let’s be honest, what can be better than the idea what you would only have to step out your home to be able to visit a fantastic gym right in your neighborhood?

I always recommend to people that they should really take a close look at the area they plan to move to, obviously *before* a final moving decision is made! Take out the yellow pages and spend an afternoon or two on the internet to research the area you’re planning to live and try to consider all the things that are important for you and your family.

Pretty much any fitness gym today will have a web page and an entry on a map online. You should therefore easily be able to establish how many and what type of gyms and other fitness locations are close by your potential future home. This research can be done in an hour or two. This way you can do something for your health and fitness but likewise also for your wallet since it can save you a lot on gas if you don’t need to drive lots to get to your favorite fitness places quickly.

A Stunning Look For Your Home With Driftwood Furniture

You don’t need to have a home at Barafundle  Beach or any of the other fantastic beach locations in the UK if you want to have a maritime flair in your home. I personally like this style for homes since it conveys the beauty of the sea and can give any home a refreshing and open ambiance. Obviously, this is the perfect style for summer homes but of course it can go beautifully with almost any type of home in the UK.

A Stunning Driftwood Coffee Table

Among those furniture and furnishings items that can transform any home into a maritime dream would be pieces made from driftwood.

This is a fantastic natural material that can make for truly stunning pieces such as driftwood tables or all sorts of beautiful home accessories like mirrors or lamps.

Driftwood sculptures can also be eye-catching pieces for any home’s front yard.

Furniture made from natural materials such as driftwood combined with glass works very well if you love the maritime style like I do. But it also blends beautifully with many other styles.

A driftwood coffee table or console will make a great piece in a home office or in the living room. This kind of furniture radiates a truly unique fascination because it looks simple and minimalistic yet is gorgeously stunning at the same time. Look at my driftwood coffee table at the left then you will understand why I love driftwood furniture that much!

In addition to larger driftwood pieces such as tables and desks, you can accentuate your home in a maritime fashion with accessories such as a driftwood mirror or driftwood lamp. Obviously, those pieces will also go beautifully with a driftwood desk or coffee table.

How to Increase Your Home’s Fire Safety Without Major Rework

Wireless Fire AlarmsIf you are the owner of a  home, even more so if you are a business owner, having a modern fire alarm system installed is a lot easier today than it was in previous times.

Some years ago, the installation of  an advanced fire alarm system inside a building required major structural rework.

Walls had to be opened to be able to lay the wires and cabling that connected the numerous smoke alarms and fire detectors to a central console. What this meant was that having such a fire alarm system installed cost a lot more than the devices itself, add the fact that it often took weeks for placing those systems.

For businesses and commercial buildings this brought the additional but considerable problem of downtime for the business due to the required work.

Today, installing or upgrading your existing fire alarms is much less a hassle. The reason for this is that modern fire alarm systems operate wirelessly. There is no requirement to lay cables throughout a building.

As compared to the previous conventional fire alarm systems, the wireless systems are also a lot more flexible in terms of where and how many smoke detectors, manual fire alarms  and so forth you can place.

Installation of even the most sophisticated wireless fire alarm systems today will normally only take a few hours, there is no downtime involved and no dirt from having to open up walls. In addition to those advantages comes of course the much reduced costs which makes those wireless fire alarms now appealing for virtually any business or home.

Tips: Frequently Made Mistakes When Cleaning A Home

Dusting, cleaning our home’s windows and even doing daily laundry: No one would suspect that most people actually make big mistakes performing those seemingly easy tasks. Here are some tips I found over at the Huff Post about commonly overused cleaning products we use on a daily basis:

Mistake 1: Spraying glass cleaner right at the window and wiping it clean. This is the wrong way to do it. Instead, spray the glass cleaner on a paper towel and then wipe the surface with it.

Mistake 2: Overdoing it with furniture polish and wax. While it may seen sensible to use those products often, less can actually be better. If you wax and polish your furniture too often it can otherwise lead to a film that attracts dust and dirt even more!

Mistake 3: Using too much detergent when doing laundry. Common sense says your laundry will get cleaner the more detergent you use. This is entirely incorrect. In fact, less detergent can lead to cleaner laundry. Cleaning experts recommend to use not more than an old table spoon laundry detergent!

What Is The Best School In Hertfordshire?

As a real estate agent in Hertfordshire I am often finding myself in the situation to give clients tips and advice beyond those things that are related to their home purchase.

Very often, customers move from one location to the other which means I am often dealing with people that are new to the area so they ask for advice on things like where to shop, where the hospitals are, which doctor would be recommended and similar things.

Among The Private Schools Hertfordshire, The Kingshottschool Stands Out

Among The Private Schools Hertfordshire, The Kingshottschool Stands Out

When families move here with their children they often ask me about the schools in Hertfordshire and whether I can recommend one.

Now, this is perhaps a tricky situation because I can of course only give tips based on my own opinion and what I consider best may not be necessarily the case for some of my clients.

As for my own family, our children attend the Kingshottschool in Hertfordshire.

This is a private school which excels in all aspects, whether it’s the level of education the school provides, the school’s philosophy, their great teachers or the extra-curricular activities and sports my children can enjoy there.

Among the private schools Hertfordshire I consider the Kingshottschool the best and my children agree with me on all accounts!

In fact, I started to make the existence of this very good prep school here in Hertfordshire one major selling point for some of my offered homes in the area.

See it like that: It is true that many people who plan to buy a home make schooling and education options available in an area one major criterion for their buying decision. This is not much different as with knowing that your future home may be in an excellent neighborhood or that you know there are other amenities close-by which obviously can give a home added value.

If you know there is an excellent private school right there you won’t need to worry about your children’s education.

If you plan to move to Hertfordshire and have children, I highly recommend you see the Kingshottschool website at And this is also what I tell all my clients who approach me with questions in regards to their children’s education.
