Poufs! A Magnificent mcm backpack small Accent!

Finally, finally, finally, the beautiful, functional, highly versatile pouf seems to have captured thoroughly the imagination of contemporary interior design and decor. Immensely popular, the pouf is showing up on innumerable websites, decorating magazines, blogs and television commercials. It’s quite the trend, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it to you! I love the Moroccan aesthetic, and I love poufs of all kinds!

The traditional pouf has, of course, been a prevalent and ubiquitous item in Moroccan decor for centuries. Yes, centuries. Leather artisans from Marrakesh are arguably the traditional makers of Moroccan poufs. And as a cultural furnishing, the pouf mcm backpack medium can be found in homes as palatial and grand as an Emir’s, and as simple and humble as a shopkeeper’s.

To be clear, a pouf is, at its simplest, a soft, stuffed seat that has no back or arms. Its simplicity of design and form is precisely what makes it such an adaptable, easy furnishing to integrate in almost any decor. Think creatively when considering uses for a pouf. Of course it can be handy as extra seating, but a pouf also makes a lovely footstool, or an occasional or side table. Consider using them in pairs or a group of three. Top one with a tray, and instantly you have a low serving mcm backpack mini table. A pouf is very handy in a bedroom when you need a small seat for putting on your shoes, or temporarily parking your bag or coat. And in a child’s room, it’s perfect for tea parties, stuffed toys, or quiet reading. Or perhaps as a perch for a very pampered pet!

An increasingly wide array of materials, patterns, and even variations on shape further stretch the pouf’s versatility from casual and utilitarian to highly decorative and culturally formal. Traditionally made of leather, and certainly available in leather in multiple colors, the pouf is now commonly constructed with other cultural textiles, like woven kilim tapestries, Indian batiks and brocades, as well as decorator cottons mcm backpacks replica and upholstery fabrics. Consequently, prices of poufs vary immensely according to the materials of their construction. There exist some truly exquisite pieced leather poufs, and others adorned with intricate embroidery; these can command prices of several hundred dollars.

Online there are so many beautiful poufs from which to choose. First and foremost, we have the traditional, Moroccan poufs, many made of leather. We have other beautiful versions from India, and even American-made, weather-resistant poufs designed for outdoor use.

Stuffing for contemporary poufs also varies widely. But be aware that a pouf is meant to be a solid, reliable shape, so its stuffing should be solid and dense. Coconut fiber, also known as coir, is a common fill material because of its durable character; it is also far less subject to becoming lumpy. Typically a dense core material is padded by cotton batting so that the seat is both soft and solid.

Cheaper methods for stuffing poufs, many of which come to the consumer unstuffed to save on shipping costs, include shredded newspaper, old towels or blankets, shredded foam, even plastic grocery bags! The key, of course, is to stuff the pouf very full and firmly and smoothly. It’s not a pillow, remember! It’s a seat or a footstool or a table….or whatever you can think to use it for!

 

Forty Billion mcm crossbody bag Worlds!

The first exoplanet to be spotted, orbiting a star like our own Sun, was discovered back in 1995. Since that historic finding almost a generation ago, exoplanet discoveries have poured in at a breathtaking pace and–as of this writing–more than 1,000 remote worlds circling distant stars have been confirmed. The search for a habitable planet, like our own world, remains the Holy Grail of dedicated planet-hunters. In November 2013, astronomers from the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Hawaii, Manoa, reported their estimation that one in five Sun-like stars have Earth-size planets with surface temperatures friendly to the evolution of life. Given that about 20 percent of stars are mcm shoulder bag Sun-like, this amounts to several tens of billions of potentially habitable Earth-size exoplanets in our Milky Way Galaxy–alone!

“When you look up at the thousands of stars in the night sky, the nearest Sun-like star with an Earth-size planet in its habitable zone is probably only 12 light-years away and can be seen with the naked eye. That is amazing,” commented Berkeley graduate student Erik Petigura in a November 4, 2013 University of California, Berkeley, Press Release. Mr. Petigura led the analysis of data derived from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope that arrived at this impressive number of potentially habitable mcm purse Earth-like worlds. Kepler is now unfortunately crippled, with its four-year mission at an untimely end. Nevertheless, it still managed to provide enough precious data to answer its primary research question: How many of the 200 billion stars in our Galaxy could potentially host habitable planets?

“It’s been nearly 20 years since the discovery of the first extrasolar planet around a normal star. Since then, we have learned that most stars have planets of some size orbiting them, and that Earth-size planets are relatively common in close-in orbits that are too hot for life,” explained Dr. Andrew Howard in the November 4, 2013 Berkeley Press Release. Dr. Howard, a former Berkeley post-doctoral fellow is now on the faculty of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii. “With this cheap mcm backpack result, we’ve come home, in a sense, by showing that planets like our Earth are relatively common throughout the Milky Way Galaxy,” he added.

 

This plethora of planets far exceeds what astronomers dreamed of before NASA launched Kepler in 2009. The telescope, which is in orbit around the Sun, discovers exoplanets by looking for them as they “transit”–that is, pass in front of–the brilliant, fiery faces of their stellar parents. This transit causes a brief dimming of the parent star’s light. “When I first started working with Kepler right before launch, I thought there would be maybe a thousand planets that Kepler would find,” said Dr. Jason Rowe at a November 4, 2013 press conference, held at the Kepler Science Conference in Moffett Field, California. Dr. Rowe is an astronomer at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California.

Clutter Control mcm backpack medium Tips

We come into the house, throw our shoes, coats and keys on the counter. Clutter is without a doubt a huge stumbling block to someone who really wants a clean organized house. Once your clothes are all over the floor and the house becomes very cluttered, it becomes more difficult to do a really good cleaning. Therefore, dusting, vacuuming and moping are put on the backburner. Now the task is no longer just cleaning but de-cluttering as well which could seem like a very mcm backpack mini overwhelming task.

You can store seasonal items or maternity clothing in storage bins or “Space Bags”. “Space Bags” are plastic bags that you vacuum the air out of to save space.

Backpack mcm shoulder bag Costs

When I visit the various department stores and examine the immense collection of backpacks I am stunned at the huge cost that is associated with them. No longer can you pick up a quality pack for a reasonable price.

I did however notice that occasionally our local Wal-Mart will have a few of the American Tourister luggage on sale complete with straps and wheels attached. It essentially is not a bad piece of luggage in the least.

It is complete with a elongated zippered pocket positioned on each side which is large enough to accommodate a 2 liter bottle of water.

If you add several D-rings to the unit you could utilize it to clip items such as flashlights, ropes or even knives to the outside of it.

An even less expensive method of getting around the high price tag associated with backpacks it by making your own. I found this idea on the internet several years ago and it still stands out in my mind as both practical and cost effective. Take a pair of cheap mcm backpack old, clean Levi pants making certain that they are fully zipped up and snapped. Next sew the bottom of the legs closed and thread a strong rope through the pant belt loops.

When it comes time to pack this homemade bag you can place several bottles of water within each of the legs. The rest of the unit’s legs can be best filled with your clothing or soft type supplies. Place your food in a plastic bag or wrap it in the blanket. Stuff the blanket with food in the pants where you would normally place your butt. Now pull the rope tightly to close the waist area up. This will keep anything from falling out. Be sure to tie it off carefully and securely. Any medications or various small items can first be placed in a Ziploc bags and then stuffed or pinned to the cheap mcm bags front pocket area.

To use this backpack lay the filled pack across your shoulders with the crotch located at the back of your neck. Arrange it so that you will be carrying the weight of the pack on your shoulders and not upon your neck. The legs should be hanging down freely over the front of you. An added benefit of this unit is that the fanny portion will prevent your neck from getting sunburned. When you are resting or camping it will also serve as a makeshift pillow.
