Brightening up your basement can improve the look and feel of the space, making it a more enjoyable and functional area of your home. Moreover, A brighter basement can have a positive impact on your mood and well-being. The increased natural light can help boost your energy levels and improve your outlook. Here are some ways to make it happen-

Make use of the natural luminance-

I know you are reading this blog because you do not have natural lighting, but if you have a few extra dollars to spare from your piggy bank, here are a few ideas that you can work on-

  • Adding glass sliding doors if your basement is in the ground level
  • Adding egress windows to the east and west to make sure that we capture the maximum amount of light
  • Cutting out the extra bushes or trees that block the natural light can be a lifesaver! (or a light saver)

Redo the dark walls-

White is a color that absorbs only 10-20% of the light from the source and reflects the maximum. So white is an obvious choice but let’s add a few bright colorsthen and there to make the space lively.

If you do not want to get your hands messy, you can go for wallpapers that are either plain white or with small patterns on them. By simply painting the room lighter, you can not only brighten up your basement but transform the entire area.


brighten up basement using glossy flooring

There are lot of options to choose from when it comes to flooring- Concrete, Carpet, Vinyl, Engineered hardwoord, Ceramic tiles, etc. But did you know that the best-suited floor for basements is Vinyl? They are durable and waterproof. They come in a huge variety of options to choose from. But choosing a light-colored shiny surface would be a clever choice as it would reflect the light from the ceilings.

Epoxy flooring is also gaining a lot of popularity these days as it helps with leakage and mold issues and they are glossier than other materials.  So, when it comes to choosing the material for flooring, durability, warmth and moisture resistance should be the priority.

Window treatments-

Use long sheer curtains to create a cozy effect

There are a whole lot of options when it comes to window treatments to brighten up a basement. But first, it is important to know what is the actual requirement.To use the window as a decorative element or to use the window for its actual functionality. If it’s the latter, you can use sheer curtains to let the light in instead of using thick drapery that will cut out the light. Angled windows let more light to pass through than the regular box-shaped window frame.

Pro Tip: Hanging longer curtains in the absence of windows can help create an illusion of tall windows.

Food for Amor


Throughout the ages, food has taken many forms and gone through countless iterations. Hand in Hand so has the art of serving. Just a few thousand years ago, the Chinese were the first to create a separate physical unit to barter food. In the year 1765 ,the first restuarent is opened by a Parisian Named Boulanger. An establishment on rue des Poulies, near the Louvre, serving mostly bouillons ,i.e, “restorative broths”.  Now, just a few hundred years in we have turned the food industry to a multi trillion dollar turnover industry . The entire world has leaped into a future where food has become a fast moving product with tons of it being wasted on one end and several million people starving on the other end for it. But the industry grows.


The debate on what and who is the next biggest invention to rock the food industry is always underway. To scrutinize and see what are the recent most industry changing inventions, one would always go down the road of street food, Fast food joints, Self serve AI based restaurents, Deliver-in services etc. But for the last decade or so , the hunger for a much faster and efficient way to run a restuarent is growing. Robotics have taken a huge forward to cut down human resource wastage but at the same time putting millions of jobs at risk. To talk of teleportation, until now as a race we have only achieved this feat in a quantum level, so a few hundred years delay can still be expected on that. So the question remains what is the next best invention for the food industry to revolutionize?

The change in food has begun already

‘Food is an expression of love’, a very commonly heard but lightly taken phrase. But this single sentence might be changing how you view restuarents forever. Today, the world is slowly stepping away from Mcdonalds and into the world of client service. More and more companies are taking steps towards providing customers a more Welcoming and warming experience rather a robotic one such as your average Mcdonalds today. Luxury brand – Tiffany & co have opened Petrossian and Blue Box Cafe . Two restaurents which are quickly gaining traction due to aesthetic and top notch service. A buffet at events has now turned into chef corner for you to personalize and connect. A bartender’s first skill to master is a smile. The more luxurious Japanese cuisine will call for a Sous chef to fire up your food right at your table.

All of these developments have one common factor- Love and one common denominator – a happy customer.

This is the direction at which the industry has started to lean. So if you are a restaurateur trying to break into the future , this might just be the way. Finding more ways to engage the customer and selling food to create connections. Dont be surprised when Fast food chains dial back into a take away restuarent, the dishes have already started to disappear!

Top 10 Animated Movies You Should Watch With Your kids

Top 10 Animated Movies You Should Watch With Your kids


The pandemic increased the amount of content consumed by kids drastically. You can use this as an opportunity to bond with them and make sure they are consuming the right content!


As the summer break approaches, the kids get excited to spend time with their friends and finally, take a breather from their studies. This is also an excellent opportunity for parents to connect with their kids and spend quality time with them. It is vital to create a bond with your children during their growing years as it nurtures a healthy relationship between the two. There are various ways of spending quality time with your kid, but one of the most impactful and easiest ways is to watch a movie together. Children learn a lot from the content they consume and a parent needs to make sure their kids are consuming meaningful content. Content that not only entertains them but also teaches them a valuable lesson about life. Animated movies have always been the best source of meaningful content. 

Here is a list of ten such animated movies that you can watch with your kid/s in the coming break:


10) How to Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon is an amazing tale of friendship between a boy and a dragon. The boy lives on an island where men are raised to be hunters to hunt dragons, however, he has a very different approach towards them for which he is mocked. The movie is more than just their friendship, the movie tells us about the journey of a boy trying to prove himself to his father and  the other island hunters. You can watch the movie on Netflix.


9) DC League of Super-Pets


If your kid is a fan of superhero films, this is a must-watch. DC comics’ Super-pets is undoubtedly one of their best-animated movies. It is the story of how a pet dog with superpowers creates a team of Super-Pets to rescue his owner (Superman) and the rest of the Justice League. You can watch the movie on Amazon Prime Video.


8) Up

Up is a movie about 78-year-old Carl Fredrickson who has lost his wife and is on a journey to fulfil his wife’s last wish. However, when he meets a few people on his journey, he learns more about life, friendship, kindness, and joy. You can watch the movie on Disney+.


7) Ratatouille

This movie covers some important topics like friendship, greed, respect, and love. You can watch the movie on Disney+.


6) Kung Fu Panda 2

An excellent sequel to an exceptional film. Kung Fu Panda is one of the best-animated franchises existing and has created some remarkable characters. Kung Fu Panda 2 talks about some important issues that are relevant to us at any age. It teaches us one of the most important lessons in life, which is to let go of the past. You can watch the movie on Netflix.


5) Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Spider-man has always been one of the most loved superheroes of all time. We have always known this superhero by the name of Peter Parker, however, this is the story of Miles Morales. When the spider-man in his universe is killed and he (Miles) gets bitten by the radioactive spider, we see his journey of becoming the new Spider-man. The movie talks about courage, friendship, and family. The movie also even talks about depression, but since it is a kid’s film, it is done in a rather subtle way. You can watch the movie on Netflix.


4) Inside Out


Inside Out has to be one of the most creative children’s movies to ever be written. Though it is a kids’ film, it talks about a very heavy topic, which is human emotions through a girl named Riley and how her life changes when she moves to San Francisco with her parents. You can watch the movie on Disney+.


3) Brave

Brave is a perfect choice for a mother-daughter movie night. It is the tale of a courageous princess who is tired of listening to her mother all the time and wants to be free from all the rules. The story gets interesting and rather funny when Merida has to save her mother from a witch’s curse. You can watch the movie on Disney+.



2) Coco

Coco is an Oscar-winning film that tells us the tale of a young boy named Miguel who wants to pursue music but unfortunately, is born into a family that hates music and has a rule of no music. Miguel is banished to the land of the dead when he does not stop playing the guitar and learns about his family’s past as he meets his ancestors. You can watch the movie on Disney+.



 1) Kung Fu Panda

Kung Fu Panda is a perfect example of maintaining a balance between entertaining and teaching when it comes to kids’ movies. Kung Fu Panda is undoubtedly the most hilarious animated movie with an extraordinary lead character Po. The movie teaches us the importance of believing in ourselves, believing in others and most importantly, never giving up. You can watch the movie on Netflix.


Each of the ten movies mentioned above has its unique tale and characters. Movies have always been an important part of our lives movies teach us some of the most important life lessons which we wouldn’t be able to learn in classrooms. I believe it is our duty as parents/adults to make sure our youth is learning these important lessons along with maths, science, and other subjects. Hence, don’t forget to watch these movies with your kid during the holidays and stay tuned for more such content on films.

Do Yourself a Favour, Play Yakuza.

In light of a recent announcement of 2 brand new games, a re-make of a game that is coming to western markets for the first time, and more PC ports, this series is something you need to play if you want to round out your gaming experience. Like a Dragon, better known colloquially as Yakuza, is a adventure/beat-em-up about a single man and his relationships and experiences in his life in the yakuza. Quite honestly, there aren’t many games to compare it to- this series really is its own beast. Known for flashy fighting skills, interesting side-quests and a literal TON of weird things to do on the side, this series now has 8 main-line games, 5 spin-offs and a brand new spin-off and mainline game announced to be in development.

Let me just show you just what you’re missing out on:

These fights are unlike any other.

The fighting in this game is insane. It’s honestly way better to watch, and even more better to experience it for yourself.

Beyond the pretty colours, the game itself makes you feel good about getting into fights. punching, kicking, throwing couches, and even smacking someone with a gun after running out of bullets all makes sense within the world and feels amazing to master. Getting those Tiger Drop counters is always satisfying, especially watching that health-bar being siphoned from the enemy. Or just do what I did and button mash- either way, beating down these terrible people is insanely cathartic after watching the news.

Also, the Substories and Sidequests.

Most games these days do side-quests that take you off the beaten path to help pad out game-play and help you explore the world. In basically every Like A Dragon game, every side-quest is a new character storyline, a brand new secret path to open up, and a new way to find powerful weapons and items that you can’t find otherwise. This means all the goofy nonsense (and there is a LOT of goofy, unhinged madness) that happens in these sidequests not only is fun to experience, but it also enhances your experience playing the game. Just check this wonderful snippet out:

That’s right. That’s the main character. On a side quest. To learn English. It’s charming, funny, and silly, all things extreme

ly welcome in a story about theft, betrayal, and murder. Don’t forget- this is a game about the Yakuza!

Look at all this… STUFF

Beyond all that, there’s also SO MUCH

STUFF TO DO! I’m talking RC Car racing. I’m talking Mahjong. I’m talking casino games. I’m talking arcade games. I’m talking karaoke. I’m even talking taking pictures of CATS!

These aren’t game-specific, either. All of these things can be done in basically every Yakuza game, and they’re all different in every game! The arcade games change every installment. The AI gets better for every casino, card and mahjong minigame you play. Different songs are available in each installment. Ryu Ga Gotoku doesn’t skimp out on these details, as these are some of the best parts of each game.

Did i mention food? I know you can’t actually taste anything, but these games are essentially mini-tours of different parts of Japan, and show off different cuisines and everything.

In conclusion…

If you like video games, you need to play these games. If you like unique story-lines, you need to play these games. Hell, if you like soap-operas, these games are 100% worth your time. You can pick them up for under $30 each for the first few, and honestly it’s worth every cent.

And, if you end up becoming like me, I’m sure you’ll be picking up Like A Dragon: Ishin, out February 22!


Luxury Brands & Cartoons: The Arising Trend

4 Key Factors of Surprising Success in Luxury Brands’ Co-Branding with Cartoon Characters

When you think of luxury brands, what comes to mind? The first image that comes to mind is the elegant and sophisticated brand image. In recent years, the arising trend of luxury brand co-branding with cartoon characters has been impacting the market in a  successful way.

Visit to discover the amazing collaboration.

To begin with, let’s take a quick look at Gucci and Loewe’s brand profiles and a couple of cartoon collaborations to find out how nostalgic cartoons boost the sale!

Luxury Fashion Brands Introduction – Loewe & Gucci

Loewe – A Spanish luxury fashion house established in 1846, and Loewe is well-known for its creative, innovative craftsmanship and leather products. The product-line including handbags, ready-to-wear clothing, and accessories. Also, Loewe is part of the LVMH Group.

Gucci is a luxury fashion brand founded in Florence, Italy, in 1921. It is famous for its leather goods, handbags, ready-to-wear clothing, shoes, etc. For example, the double G logo, sans-serif typeface with repeating link-like patterns, red and green stripes, and horse-bit hardware look are very recognizable.

Luxury brands are typically associated with timeless, sophisticated, and streamlined designs. Yet, luxury fashion brands have been partnering with famous cartoon characters to create limited-edition fashion goods in a growing trend.

For instance, the Howl’s Moving Castle X Loewe collection was inspired by the 2D fantasy film that was animated by Studio Ghibli.

In the following sections, we will take a closer look at Studio Ghibli and see what other films Loewe has collaborated with this studio.

Studio Ghibli X Loewe

Howl’s Moving Castle was directed by Yamazaki and produced by Toshio Suzuki. It was released on November 20, 2004, in Japan. According to Ghibli Wiki, the film grossed $24 million worldwide. Hayao Miyazaki co-founded Studio Ghibli in 1985 and directed and produced numerous famous animated films. For example, such as Laputa (1986), My Neighbour Totoro (1988), and Spirited Away (2001). Above all, this is the third collaboration between Studio Ghibli and Loewe. Following collections inspired by Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro.

Let’s take a virtual tour by watching the limited-time Howl’s Moving Castle x Loewe pop-up store at LOEWE Omotesando, Tokyo, Japan.

Another successful co-branding example will be the Doraemon x Gucci collection in 2021, which coincided with Doraemon’s 50th anniversary and Gucci’s 100th anniversary.

There are four reasons why luxury brands have been successful in teaming with cartoon characters:

  1. Fulfilling Psychological Needs

Nostalgic and well-known characters evoke strong emotional connections with consumers. Not to mention, those cartoon characters are tie-ins with childhood memories, beloved characters, fantasy plots, and scene design. In addition, co-branding allows the two brands to be creative and bring these elements together. The co-branding also deliver an exclusive and meaningful product to the customers.

  1. Reaching a New Demographic

The classic logos and brand recognition are a huge part of how consumers become interested in the brand design. However, co-branding allows both brands to expand beyond their existing customer bases. Most importantly, the collaboration of vivid and playful cartoon characters breaks down the barrier between younger consumers and sophisticated luxury brand profiles. In other words, this helps in increasing brand visibility and attracting new customers.

  1. Capitalizing on High Brand Equity

Taking Studio Ghibli X Loewe as an example, the demographics of Studio Ghibli fans are in a wide range worldwide. In fact, the brand itself massively attracts an audience of all ages. More, the imaginative and fantasy dream of Ghibli World is a timeless brand in and of itself. Therefore, both Studio Ghibli and Loewe have loyal fan bases, and it can be easier to achieve market acceptance and financial performance through a co-branding strategy.

  1. Boosting Brand Recognition Through Retail Pop-up Therapy

Imagine entering a brick-and-mortar store and seeing your favourite cartoon character appealing to a café, a pop-up store event, and how exciting that could be. At the pop-up, customers not only do they get to visually see their favourite characters, but they can also participate in a physically interactive experience by trying on products and taking photos.

Hence, this exclusive retail experience enhances brand recognition and provides a high level of spiritual satisfaction for consumers.


Lastly, co-branding between luxury brands and cartoon characters is a rising trend that is here to stay. As a result, the power of the brands’ collaboration helps to increase their visibility and attention among the audience, and it is a new way for consumers to recognize brands in a fun and joyful way.

The New Splatoon 3 Amiibo is Worth It!

Not long ago, Nintendo finally released the new amiibos for its overwhelmingly popular game Splatoon 3. Fans have been waiting for quite a while! If you are still hesitating, or if you are new to the game and are wondering what an amiibo is and whether it’s worth buying, well, you’ve found the right blog! Here is my review on the new Splatoon 3 amiibo.

Cool Appearances of the Characters

The appearances of the figures were the first things to blow me away. The designs are cohesive to the aesthetic of the game which is cool and wild. Also, the figures look like they are captured in motion, adding a strong sense of flow.

The newly released Nintendo amiibos of Splatoon 3

Higher Quality of the new Splatoon 3 Amiibo

I have to say, each one of the new Splatoon 3 amiibo is obviously better in quality than former ones from Splatoon 1 & 2! To be honest, I did not expect the ones I bought would be as delicate as the samples. However, it turns out that the details are satisfyingly well-made. The characters look alive and the gears very cool to look at too. Personally, I will definitely keep them away from my working space. Otherwise, I will always want to take one more good look at how beautiful they are instead of focusing on my work.Details and back views of the newly released Nintendo amiibos from Splatoon 3

New Exclusive Gears

For new fans – this is the most unique function that a Nintendo amiibo has: you can actually acquire exclusive in-game gears by tapping the pedestal of your amiibo on the controller. In Splatoon specially, you can even take in-game pictures with your favorite characters using your amiibo. The three new figures respectively have three outfits with special abilities. And I have to say, the design of the looks also delivers the aesthetic and sense of humor which you can only see in Splatoon 3!

Overall, if you are a true Splatoon 3 lover, then do not hesitate anymore. The new Splatoon 3 amiibo will never make you regret! Here is the official website to take them home:

Home workout tips

Today, the pace of life is getting faster and faster, many people are busy with work and study, and they spend rare rest time staying at home. Many people cannot go to the gym for various reasons, but lack of exercise for a long time will cause Let our body be in a sub-healthy state. If you want to change this, you can try the no-equipment fitness skills that PSB fitness brings to you at home.



Lie prone with elbows bent and supported on the ground, shoulders and elbow joints perpendicular to the ground, feet on the ground, body off the ground, trunk straight, head, shoulders, hips and ankles kept in the same plane, abdominal muscles retracted Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, lengthen your spine, keep your eyes on the ground, and keep breathing evenly. A group of 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds between each group, do about 6 groups in total, plank support exercises the muscles of the whole body, it is better to be able to persist for a long time.



From childhood to adulthood, we have done countless sit-ups. This exercise mainly exercises the abdominal muscles, especially the rectus abdominis, but it must be done in a standard way, otherwise it is easy to cause back injuries, and it will not be worth the loss. Lie on your back, put your legs together, lift your hands up, use your abdominal muscles to contract, swing your arms forward, quickly become a sitting position, continue to bend your upper body forward, touch your feet with both hands, and bow your head; then return to a sitting position, and so on.



The crunch can exercise the abdominal muscles, and the crunch cannot hurt the back, so we highly recommend this exercise. For simple crunches, you can do sit-ups, but you don’t have to get up with your whole body, you can go down by touching your ankles with your hands. Crunches can be tried for beginners who lack exercise and lack of waist and abdominal strength. After the waist and back strength is trained, they can practice sit-ups.

Getting Enough Exercise in College


Getting enough exercise in college is key to keeping your body moving. Exercise is a great way to get your blood flowing, reduce stress, stay or become fit, strengthen your muscles, reduce your risk for some diseases and cancers, and maybe even increase your lifespan.

How much exercise do I need?

The CDC and the Department of Health and Human Services’ 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans maintain two general exercise recommendations for adults between 18 and 64 years old.

  • Cardio: Getting your heart rate up with moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise (or a combination of both) will increase the strength of both your heart and lungs and increase your endurance. Cardio, too, can help improve your cholesterol levels, control your blood sugar, and maintain your weight. You may also experience a mood boost, an energy boost, and a decrease in stress and anxiety if you fit cardio in regularly or when trying in getting enough exercise in college. Aim for:
    • Between 150 and 300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week (e.g., brisk walking, water aerobics, swimming, bike riding on level ground), or
    • Between 75 and 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity every week (e.g., running, bike riding on hills, basketball), or
