I remember the poem my grandmother wrote and here’s some of it’s wordings, “I hope you can be my umbrella, someone who can shield me from tears and pain”.  When I received this pretty umbrella, I remember the time I have with my grand mother. She’s my shield from all the pain and she was there during happiness and sadness.

As time goes by, the things around us also evolves from it’s humble beginning to a worldwide known innovation. Knirps is one great example of how an invention can move people. Honestly, i have never known that they are the one who invented  the folding umbrella.  Knirps from Germany set the world standard for pocket umbrella with their wide selection and different styles.

Did you know?

The word Knirps actually means “little one” in German, and ever since the company invented the folding umbrella in 1928, it has set the worldwide standard for designing umbrellas that are not only “little,” but fashionable and durable as well.

Ultra light and pocket friendly those are just the two things I always look for my umbrella. Something that is compact yet sturdy and can handle  even a windy day but also would not compromise it’s style.

Since 1928, Knirps boasts and pride a legacy of precision German engineering. Here are some signature qualities of Knirps umbrella  that you ought to know:

  • Made from super-strong steel or high-grade aluminum, lined with zinc for additional strength and flexibility
  • Ergonomically comfortable
  • No-slip grip provides secure hold when wet
  • Repels water with unique flat-weave polyester
  • Flex with the wind from any direction
  • Can flip completely inside out and back again – good as new

Just reading those qualities and characteristics could make me a believer but it’s not done yet, the fact that the company vows to meet modern environmental protection requirements and has strict guidelines for recycling and waste management makes me more proud of knowing this brand. It’s not a surprise for me that they are awarded in Germany as brand of the century since their achievements is more than enough proof for such a prestigious commendation.

Enjoy the Sun with Sun Protective Clothing

Summer is coming very fast and I can almost feel the heat of the sun.  Although, we love summer very much because it’s the perfect time to go for a picnic or visit a nearby beach or swimming pool, the heat of the sun totally burns me leaving me and my kids sunburn or sometimes skin irritation.  But hubby get’s the most sunburn from all of us. It is perhaps part of his genes or his stubbornness to put some sunblock.

We all know that the sun rays gave us some good benefits but too much of this can also lead to skin cancer or even heat stroke, dehydration or sun burn and even wrinkles.  This was caused by the UVR or ultra violet rays and this is more higher during summer  between 9:00 AM to 3:00 P.M.

Back to hubby,  he really liked his new  Men’s short sleeve rash guard from Sun Protection Zone because it’s indeed stylish.  This ActiveSkinz™ rash guard is  made from recycled polyester (63%), nano bamboo charcoal (27%), and spandex (10%).  It has

  • SPF 100 / UPF 50+ rated.  I even told him to take a pose with his new sun protective shirt but his always shy.  I guess, i’ll just take a shot when he uses this on our coming summer escapades.

What I like with this shirt is the fact that it was eco-friendly and it was built to resists chlorine and saltwater.  It’s stretch and smooth gives the wearer easy movement.  What’s more, it’s indeed affordable for the price of $25 , since you get benefits more than that amount can give especially to the health of our love ones.

Heat can be a big problem but with preventive measures like wearing the right protective outfit /gear we can enjoy the outdoor. After all, we don’t like the sun to be the reason for not having a great summer outdoor getaway. Don’t you think?
