Small Home Gym and Yoga Studio Plus Review of Titan T-3 Power Rack

Tiny GymI live and work in the mountains 25 miles from a gym.  Going to town to workout takes too much time.  I started a “free weight” lifting program at home, but eventually got to the point where I needed a spotter, or a squat rack, or a weight bench or something.  I do not have space in my house or garage for any of that equipment.  Boo!  🙁   I started looking on the internet to see what fold up type equipment might be out there,  something I could put away, out of the way, when I’m done working out.

I came across the Titan T-3 Power Rack and decided it is everything and more that I would everSmall Home Gym need, affordable and it folds flat against the wall!  Whoo hoo! But, where to put it?  I remembered we had a small 8′ x 7′ landscaping pump house my husband built a few years ago.  Since California has been in a drought we decided not to use landscaping that needed to be irrigated, so the little pump house was just being used as storage.  I went up to measure it and it seemed big enough for this fold up power rack, so I ordered it.

Camouflage Nightie for Valentines Day!

Camouflage Lingerie

Camouflage Nightie

 

Camouflage nightgown, NEW from Nyteez, my own design, classic green camouflage with pink lace trim nightie.  Made of soft cotton knit with pink stretch lace trim.  I am not a fan of the all over pink camo design, it is just too much pink.  So, I decided to add a splash of pink to the classic woodland green camo.  These do run small, it is best to order up a size or 2.

I have Amazon.com shipping these for me so if you are a Prime Member you get free 2-day shipping!  Plenty of time to make it there for Valentines day.

Silk Charmeuse Pajamas

Nyteez - Silk Pajama Set

Nyteez - Silk Pajama Set

Silk charmeuse pajamas are one of my favorite things. I love the way silk feels on my skin and I love the flattering way silk garments drape on my body.

For centuries silk has been regarded as the worlds most luxurious fabric.  Made from unraveling the cocoon of the Mulberry Silk worm.  Each cocoon is made from (approximately) a 1 mile long strand of a natural protein fiber which is woven to make fabric.  The triangular, light refracting structure of the fiber is what gives silk it’s shimmery lustrous appearance.

Today, natural silk had been replaced by less expensive synthetic silk.  But for me, nothing is like real silk charmeuse.  Silk charmeuse is the most luxurious of all silk fabrics.  Silk charmeuse is not the same as silk satin.  Silk satin is not as soft and luxurious as charmeuse.  Silk Charmeuse is also called “crepe back satin”.

Many people think silk is a delicate fabric that needs to be hand washed.  Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers.  I throw my silk pajamas and nighties in the washer & dryer (on the delicate cycle).  Some of my silk sleepwear is

Pink Silk Jaquard Robe

over 15 years old!  With time the shimmery silk charmeuse garments tend to get a sand washed look to them, but a good ironing (inside out) on medium high heat brings back the shine.  Or you can dry clean your silk pajamas and they will stay new looking forever.

A Wonderful Chardonnay!

I just received my spring wine club shipment from Husch Vineyards. I am not a huge Chardonnay fan, but I do love buttery or creamy Chardonnays.  To me they are just as wonderful as a nice Cabernet, a sensual wine to be sipped and thoroughly enjoyed.  Finding a good “buttery” Chardonnay these days is not easy.  But, the new 2006 Special Reserve Chardonnay from Husch Vineyards is spectacular!  It is one of the best, if not THE best buttery Chardonnay I have ever tasted.

I think a seafood pasta dish, like a Fettuccine Alfredo made with Gruyere cheese, shrimp, crab, lobster or all of the above, would be “Heavenly” with this Chardonnay.  Or simply some Camembert cheese (a French brie type cheese), a sourdough baguette and a gourmet nut mix (macadamia, cashew and almond) would be wonderful too.[ad#ad-2]
