ShoeTree Project: Saphir Super Invulner Waterproofing Spray

You may have a pair of good quality leather shoes or boots but come a sudden downpour, they could be irreparably damaged. To prevent such situations from happening, you could protect your shoes by using Saphir Super Invulner Waterproof Spray. Introduced by the ShoeTree Project, this spray uses natural ingredients in place of silicone as the waterproofing compound, which is definitely one less health risk to take.

The waterproofing spray is imported from the world-renowned Saphir brand in France and there are several reasons why this is highly important for people who own leather shoes:

  • A waterproofing spray prolongs the lifespan of leather shoes by preventing loss of its natural oils. Oils can be leeched out of the leather when water soaks in and evaporates afterwards. The loss of oils make the leather microstructure more brittle and prone to cracks.
  • What most people don’t realise is that most of the waterproofing sprays out there use silicone as the waterproofing ingredient. While this may be alright for fabric shoes, silicone is highly drying to leather and wil, rather counterproductively, reduce its lifespan. The Saphir formula uses natural ingredients that help leather retain its natural oils.
  • The slow-drying formula of the Saphir Invulner also does not leave visible uneven patches like faster-drying sprays do. When wearing leather shoes, you want them to look their best!

The ShoeTree Project is a startup on a mission to bring the stagnating, inaccessible shoe care industry stuck in physical retail of yesteryear no more than a few clicks away from doorsteps around Southeast Asia. One of the cooler innovations that leather shoe owners would love to try out would be its algorithmic Custom Kit Design Tool as shoe care is a rather esoteric field, many shoe owners do not know which are the right products that make their shoes last decades, so they end up missing out a crucial component of their shoe care kit, or overspending on solutions they do not need.

ShoeTree Project’s Custom Kit Designer utilizes a proprietary algorithm to recommend only products that a client requires based on his shoe type, typical environment, as well as desired finish – a truly personalized shoe care kit! Coupled with FREE doorstep shipping and FREE size exchanges, it is just like having a 24-hour, 7-day a week shoe care shop right outside your doorstep, complete with service staff to help you with product selection. These innovations are what allow them to deliver the traditional emphasis on quality (like their handcrafted American Red Cedar shoe trees and shoe horns made from genuine ox horn) at mass market prices almost half of those in retail.

Your Guide To The Balearic Islands

Just to the East of mainland Spain, there are four Spanish islands that make up the Balearic Islands. While they are classed as Spain, they are quite diverse and different from the mainland Spain. The islands are Ibiza, Menorca, Mallorca, and Formentera. With great beaches and great weather, it can be hard to know where to visit first. So here is a bit of a breakdown to the Balearic Islands, to help you choose where your next vacation may be.

Ibiza

The island of Ibiza has long been known as a bit of a party town, wih mentions in many pop songs and some world-renowned clubs and DJs performing there. And while this is true, there is plenty more to the island than just clubbing. The north of the island has a very bohemain character and feel to it, with a very relaxed atmosphere, with many great places to eat and dine. Ibiza Town, the capital, has some unique history to explore, as well as being closer to the clubbing scene.

Mallorca

The largest island of them all, Mallorca has a lot to offer and is a popular spot for families. There are some of the clinches about being a Spanish island, with plenty of high-rise buildings by the beach. However, there is more to the island than that, especially if you go slightly more inland to stay somewhere like Marriott’s Club Son Antem in Llucmajor near Palma. There are some stunning mountains, beautiful coves, and some quaint old towns.

Menorca

To the east of Mallorca is the smaller island of Menorca. It has a more relaxed feel to it than the previous two islands, and is much less of a party or clubbing destination. There are some adorable little port towns, like Ciutadella, and the port in the capital is actually one of the deepest in the world. There are some modern resorts, as well as plenty of options to stay closer to the sea or rent villas more in-lands.

Formentera

The island of Formentera is a pretty tiny, and does often get forgotten about when you think about the Balearics. It has some of the best beaches out of the whole lot of them, though, so doesn’t deserve to be overlooked. While there isn’t a lot else to do there, the place has a certain rustic charm that can make it worth the trip. It is quite exclusinve as far as islands go.

The Balearics are easy to access from Spain by boat or flight, but there are many other places like the UK, that offer direct flights to them. Because the islands are smaller, and have to prepare for the tourists, they cna cost a little more than mainland Spain might. However, the islands are pretty small, and you may not even need to hire a car to explore it all. It can be pretty easy to go from each island too, so if you can’t choose which one to go to, then you might not have to.

5 Extremely Simple Tips for Traveling as a Couple

Sometimes, it is such a challenge to travel with your significant other. Still, it is possible, and it brings so much joy and happiness when done right. Undoubtedly, traveling as a couple is an ultimate test of your relationship. What is more, it could even lead to a split up. However, did you know that we are the ones that let our trips be stressful? That is tight. Delayed or missed flights, wrong rooms booked at hotels and other unexpected stuff will always be the parts of any trip. Your reaction to all the mentioned is what defines whether you will have the time of your life or the worst vacation ever. We will do our best to help you have the best trip as a couple and do at least try not to kill each other in the middle of it. Let us start. Thank you for these tips to Russian dating site.

1. Have a Long Time about Your General Expectations

The most frequent reason for spoiled traveling is her “Let’s Instagram everything we see here” and his “Let’s leave our phones at home”. To avoid it, have a good talk about where and why you want to go a month before departure. Sit down, listen to your partner’s take on her/his ideas for the trip. Then compare notes and compromise.

2. Speak on the Budget in Advance

This is probably one of the most essential things that you do before leaving. What really works for the most of couples nowsdays is going Dutch as they say. You just literally split the costs fifty-fifty, right down the middle. Still, try not to get over-focused on the money issue. You don’t have to be counting evrery single penny because you may get obsessive and cause a little bit of bad blood. Keeping it 100% totally even does no good for any couple. So stay human. Try not to become the Scrooge McDuch. Your date picked you for a trip, not the crazy duck of Disney.

3. Eat Before You Get “Hangry”

Walking for hours, trying to record every second, sight, an impression of your trip in your brain, the food is the last thing you care. Then you wonder why you get so disrespectful and snappy. Your date drives you mad and you cannot control yourself. Remember that from time to time it is the stomach talking, not the real you. That is why avoid it. Get snacks. Stock up. Have serious conversations during or right after meals. At the breakfast make sure yout tummies will be full during the whole day whether you will have an all-day-long road trip or a flight.

4. Value Personal Space and Time

Travel cna foster immense personal growth, especially solo travel. Be ready that traveling as a couple you may not have your wings spread and that real diving into your destination and diving a little deeper into yourself. If you want a great trip, just accept that both. Like you are two different people. You might have different desires when it comes to what to do at the destination and each of us is ready to sacrifice some time to do that. During the short solo trips, use them to embrace your individuality, explore an adventure, create moments with yourself and then renuite and obviously share all your adventures, experiences with your date. In the end, it just brings you closer as you demonstrate an essential value, respect towards each other.

5. Have a Plan, But Never Overplan

Overplanning, you feel the stress like you need to be doing something or you need to be somewhere at a certain time. It removes you from the moment. That is the worst thing to happen on a cool vacation. In most cases, you go somewhere to relax from the daily routine and fill yourself with the energy. It is impossible to enjoy and relax when you have a strict plan set and you’re worried about it all the time. We recommend you have a loose general plan and one no-plans day. Depending on the way you both feel in the morning, you can either spend the whole day in the bed or go for some crazy adventures, spend the whole day with the locals and clear mind.
