Timeless masterpieces to boast your tastes

If you’re like me, your tastes are particular and they define you. It’s important to know what you like, and I like classy things that hint of my hard work, my lust for excellence and my intolerance for delivering anything second rate. There are many exciting ways in which to execute such delicate hints in my life and I appreciate the opportunities to do just that.

My aquarium is a prized masterpiece in my house. What could possibly be more timeless than life itself? While I love my fish, I’m not yet a seasoned expert so for now I boast a 90 gallon fresh water tank featuring over twenty varietals of fish and a number of plants as well. Not only does it aesthetically draw me in with its mesmerizing beauty, it reveals a number of things about me too. It illustrates my appreciation for fragile ecosystems and I even look at it as a temporary gift to all of my guests. If you’re more of an expert, I’d definitely recommend investing in a salt water aquarium. For me, it is more romantic as it represents the endless vastness and wonder and adventure of the sea.

When I put on my Rolex in the morning, the weight of it is comforting. Not because it affords me access to perfect time at any moment of the day or night, but more because its weight is a constant reminder that my taste is that of perfection. It represents my appreciation of top notch excellence and pride in the idea that anything you do should be done right and it can always be done better. Because of this precise sentiment, Rolex has been the standard by which every other watch is measured, for generations. If you are as inspired by this notion as I am, check out what Rolex is all about at rolex repair or rolex service center and familiarize yourself. You’ll be glad that you did.

Another great way to boast your classy tastes is to learn how to prepare a classy meal. For many of us, cooking is an intimidating adventure better suited to chefs at restaurants, but with a bit of knowledge on the basics and a flare for creativity, even you can become a more than adequate cook. There is an easy recipe for every dish known to human kind on the internet nowadays, and your computer might be your best friend when coming up with the perfect, classy meal. Just tonight, I simmered shredded pork belly in a balsamic reduction, added some shallots and fresh picked broccoli flowers and served it over long grain rice. The beauty of this was how quick and easy the entire process was! Get yourself a cookbook or a recipe app for your phone and see where your inspiration takes you!

I love being outdoors but as much as I want to indulge in activities like hiking and camping, my busy schedule does not give me a lot of time to do so. But whenever I do have time, I try to enjoy these activities to the fullest. Hiking is something that I enjoy because it has many health benefits such as improved cardio-respiratory and muscular fitness, increased bone density or a slower loss of density, reduced depression, better quality of sleep, and weight control among others. Furthermore, I get to enjoy the beauty of nature.

There are plenty of places around the world where you can do this activity but hiking in Australia remains to be on top of my list. It has some grand walking trails like Heysen Trail, Victoria’s Wilsons Promontory, Bibbulmun Track, and Larapinta Trail across the Northern Territory’s West MacDonnell Ranges where you can do day walks, short scenic sections or pace end-to-end on trips that take weeks or months to finish.

Naturally you will need to wear the right clothes and shoes and have appropriate gear on your hiking trip. The essentials however, do not need to be expensive to be trail-worthy. But it would be great if they are functional, comfortable, and fashionable. Wear synthetic T-shirts, shorts, wool sweater, waterproof / wind-proof rain / wind jackets, hiking or rain pants, and hiking specific socks. As for footwear, hiking boots are the way to go. Your backpack needs to be big enough to carry your food, water, extra clothes and other necessities (map and compass, firestarter and matches, multi-tool or knife, first aid kit, flashlight or headlamp and extra batteries, sunscreen and sunglasses) comfortably.

Nowadays, we see a lot of online stores selling sportswear and outdoor clothing at affordable prices. One of them is The Clymb which offers discounts of up to 70% off retail on the best hiking gear by the most premium brands. Here you will find men and women’s apparel, hiking shoes, packs, poles, and a lot more from brands like Adidas, Timberland, Teko, Keen, Hanwag, Merrell Footwear, Columbia, Ecco etc. I happen to be interested in the Men’s Terrex Fast X Mid GTX from Adidas which is great for quick hikes. Some of its features are TRAXION outsole built with Continental Rubber for extraordinary grip on slick surfaces, FORMOTION in the heel which enhances control, and protective synthetic-and-mesh upper lined in waterproof breathable GORE-TEX.
