Eres el amor de mi vida amor verdadero

Amor, nada de lo nuestro ha sido un error, ha sido amor verdadero, ese amor que se sueña tener para toda la vida.

Quiero tener planes contigo, quiero pensar que tenemos un futuro juntos, y aunque a veces hay nubes que oscurecen nuestro cielo yo sigo confiando en nosotros, porque me has demostrado que me amas tal como soy, que no me cambiarías por nada ni nadie, y eso llena mi vida, me siento confiada mirando el futuro que hemos soñado.

amor de mi vida, lo que tanto anhelo y sueño, eres el regalo tan anhelado, y aunque no estás conmigo en este momento, sé que llegará el día en el que nos abrazaremos, que juntos oiremos esa música que pones para que la escuche y me acompañe cuando tú no estas a mi lado.

Amor, ¡qué bello es amarte! ¡qué armonía hacen nuestros sentimientos cuando hablamos de ellos!

No puedo pensar estar sin ti, eso no lo pienso,porque sé que me amas, que caminas por mis senderos y me intuyes aunque no me veas.

No es un error amar así, mi vida, es un amor quizás mejor, porque nos hemos mirado el alma y de eso nos enamoramos, es toda una sinfonía nuestro amor… distintos sonidos, distinto como nuestro amor. . Varias cosas la complementan y la más grande de toda es la fidelidad que tienes para conmigo. ¿Cómo no voy amarte?

Sí, yo sé que vives para mí y cuentas el tiempo para abrazarme, para sentir mi piel…. ¿Cuántas noches hemos soñado eso?  No sé amor, creo que miles de noches, pero nunca es suficiente… siempre te soñaré…

Siempre te extrañaré…

Hasta que llegue el día que toques mi puerta, y allí será que lloraré por todo el tiempo que he tenido sin verte físicamente, porque amor mío, siempre de alguna forma te he sentido conmigo.

Siempre cariño… siempre aquí… Junto a mí… y un día ya no tendré que soñarte.

Kiss on the forehead: what does it mean?

It started with a kiss. Not only the title of a well-known album from the eighties, but also a common situation. Because the kiss is often the starting point of something beautiful, something loving, something that sparks from. A kiss on the mouth is often a clear sign of love, but when you get a kiss elsewhere, it can raise question marks. On your forehead for example. What the hell does that mean? In this article we give you the answer.


The kiss & the love

From the moment we open our eyes for the first time we are confronted with it: the kiss. A touch of the lips that will be inextricably linked to the rest of our lives. We use the kiss not only to greet or congratulate other people, but also to express our love for another. The kiss is a wonderful thing to tell your loved one without words that you love him or her and would like to be with that person. However, that does not necessarily mean that there must be a mutual kiss on the lips. The lips can also be placed on a body part. On one leg. Or on a stomach. Of course we don’t have to tell you that (such) kisses can also evoke feelings of lust. In many cases, sex is kicked off with a kiss.

Before this article takes spicy turns, let’s go back to the core: a kiss on the forehead. That does not seem so intimate at first. The forehead was not exactly an erogenous zone and certainly not an explicit point for depositing some warm feelings with the other person through a kiss. Yet a kiss on the forehead can indeed have a deeper meaning and be an enormous expression of love.


A kiss on your forehead

A kiss on the forehead is considered romantic by many people. If you get a kiss on the forehead from the other person, that means that the giver of the kiss has feelings for you. Deep feelings, that is. You read that right: a kiss on your forehead is not just a smacker, but a sign of real love. By giving you a kiss on the forehead, the other person wants to show you that he or she wants to be your patron or patron, you don’t want to lose anymore and loves you with all your heart.

Sigh. The above could just be a passage from any book of fairy tales. It would be very naive to claim that every kiss on the forehead carries one of the meanings above. This is determined by both the person giving the kiss and the person receiving the kiss. It can happen that the giver of the kiss only wants to give out one kiss and the other would rather not kiss on the mouth because of garlic reasons. Or that this kiss is used to provide comfort to the other person during a difficult moment. So many reasons, so many kisses.

There is therefore no real meaning to the kiss on the forehead. In relationships, such a kiss is often self-evident and couples have given it their own meaning. This kiss is no longer considered, because in general there is protection, affection and affection. If you get one and if it is unclear why (inside or outside) the relationship, it never hurts to look the giver straight in the eye and ask why he or she has just given that kiss. Often you will immediately find out the intentions and the meaning.


Who doesn’t honor the little …

In the time we live in, we attach more and more importance to big, bigger, biggest and often turn our back on small things. As has been shown many times before, it is the small things that often make the difference. Similarly a kiss on the forehead. The best advice we can give you is to kiss your loved one more often, instead of material things that have to be purchased with money.

Determine in advance what meaning you give to the kiss on the forehead and do not hesitate to share it with the person you love. Give it a special charge and do not be too frugal with the number of seconds you put your lips on your partner’s forehead. Know for sure that this form of showing affection is placed with your partner in the mental category “appreciation”.


Kiss more!

In general, the more kissed in a relationship, the happier both partners are with each other. We also use the kiss to receive confirmation that everything is still in a relationship. If you want to give your partner a kiss and he turns his or her head away, then that is often a clear sign that something is not right. In addition to being a sign of love, a kiss is also a means of obtaining information. What’s in it? Just think back to the moment you kissed someone and you then came to the conclusion that you didn’t see any bread in this potential partner. For example due to the lack of feelings or the so-called fireworks.

Finally, we can say that in the current era – in which love often seems to make way for hatred and envy – kisses can definitely be given to each other a little more. That may not be the Egg of Columbus, but every kiss (whatever kiss) makes the world a bit more beautiful. In any case, yours and your (kiss) partner’s, if only for a little while.

11 different kisses and this is what they mean

Is your tongue regularly found in your partner’s mouth? Does he often give you a quick, fleeting kiss on your cheek? Or does he tease you by biting your lip? The way you kiss not only says a lot about you, but also about your relationship. A kiss can mean so much. Now find out what he really means by his kiss …

Kissing is not only nice, but it is also the perfect workout to burn some extra calories. In addition, you are less bothered by stress when you regularly kiss a game and your brain produces substances that make you happy while kissing. What’s not to like?  Yet a kiss is not just a kiss, because there is a meaning behind the way you kiss and get kissed. You can read the meaning below.

1. Quick kiss on the mouth


This kiss, with closed lips , can be used in multiple situations. We often use this kiss when we say goodbye or greet someone. If you don’t get a kiss, while that is normally the case, it often means that your partner is angry with you.

2. The teasing kiss


When your partner teases your lip, he indicates that he wants more … It is a playful way of kissing with a sexual edge. Chances are that you will end up in bed after a kiss like this.

3. Kiss next to lip


When someone kisses you just next to your lip, the person in question likes you so much that he takes the time for you. At the same time, he is teasing a bit by not kissing you on your mouth, but he certainly sees you.

4. Kiss in the neck


A kiss in your neck is so incredibly sexy and when your partner kisses you in the neck, he wants more. It is not a friendly kiss, it is pure passion. Oh la la!

5. Kiss forehead


This kiss is especially very sweet and your partner indicates with this kiss that he is crazy about you.

different kisses and this is what they mean

6. French kissing


Do you kiss each other with your tongue? Then you are full of love and passion and you want to get to know each other better. Fun fact: The longest kiss lasted 58 (!) Hours. They will have burned a lot of calories. 😉

7. Kiss over the body


Often this kiss starts on the mouth and then the rest of the body follows … The cheeks, neck and chest; they all pass by. With this kiss, your partner shows that he is taking the time for you and you do not want to let go for the time being.

8. Kiss on chin


When someone kisses you on your chin, this person is testing whether it’s okay to give you a kiss. You can answer his question by giving him a kiss on his mouth.

9. Long tender kiss


You are in love with each other, and everyone is allowed to know. With this kiss you show how much you love each other.

10. The break-up kiss


The least fun kiss, but also the most intense. With this kiss comes the realization that it is over and that it is the last time that you are intimate with each other.

11. Kiss on the chest


Does your partner give kisses on your chest? Then you want him to take off your shirt as quickly as possible and go one step further …

Sneakers in the washing machine? With these tips they look like new again

Sneakers may be ‘utensils’, but we prefer to keep them as beautiful as when they just come out of the box. But how do you do that, keep your sneakers nice and wear them at the same time? Can you go out for an evening on your favorite sneakers without having to put them in the garbage? We sorted it out.

Washing sneakers

You shouldn’t do it too often, but washing sneakers in the washing machine is sometimes the solution of your ‘trampled’ shoes! From All Stars to Adidas Stan Smith , if you wash them properly, it won’t hurt. Sneakers that you should not put in the washing machine? Sneakers with elastic at the top like the Nike Flyknits , the heat shrinks the elastic. Do you want to know for sure if your shoes can be washed? Google is your friend! It is better not to put running shoes in the washing machine, because of this the quality of the sole can decrease and that is precisely so important with running shoes.

Sneakers wash step system:

We already said it, as long as you wash your shoes properly . We have made a step-by-step plan for you to put sneakers in the washing machine.

1. Remove the laces from your shoes and remove the largest pieces of mud and other dirt. Are there pebbles between the grooves in your sole? Then remove it with a skewer before putting your sneakers in the washing machine.

2. Put your sneakers in the washing machine and the laces in a pillowcase and then put everything in the washing machine. Set your washing machine so that the water does not get too hot (preferably not warmer than 30 degrees) and with a speed that is not too high, this way your sneakers will stay the best. Add a little detergent, but definitely NOT a fabric softener. 

3. Remove the sneakers from the washing machine immediately after washing and place them in a dry place. Do not place them on the heating or in the sun, heat and light may discolor or shrink your shoes. If necessary, stuff a couple of cloths in so that the shoe dries up in the right model. Do not use newspapers for this, because the ink can give off and then the entire inside of your shoe is covered with black marks. Then you can immediately put sneakers in the washing machine again ;-).

4. Be patient, it can take just 24 to 48 hours until your shoes are really dry! But how good they look … They seem like news! Long-life sneakers in the washing machine.

Stain champion

Are your shoes not very dirty or can they not be washed ? You can also remove stains locally with stain remover such as Biotex stain remover or Vanish Oxiaction. Apply the stain remover with an old toothbrush and carefully brush over the stain. Leave on for about 15 minutes to half an hour and then rinse well. Rinse really well, because some stain removers can leave bleach stains when they are not rinsed properly and you are probably not waiting for that.

Smells

But sneakers can not only lose their novelty due to stains, a few stink feet can also do something about it. And you can quickly get stink feet in a pair of sneakers, especially if you have been barefoot in them. Do you get stink feet quickly? Then don’t go into your sneakers bare-footed, but buy short socks that don’t go beyond the edge of your sneakers.

Has the damage already happened? Or did you get smelly shoes through your socks? No worries, there is something to do about it!

Outdoor air

First of all try to leave your shoes outside for a day, fresh air does a pair of (sweat) shoes good. Note that it will not rain, you are not waiting for wet shoes.

Freezing Do

all the tips about sneakers in the washing machine not help? Put your sneakers in a plastic bag and put them in the freezer for 24 hours. Many bacteria cannot withstand temperatures below zero, which means that you will have stink-free shoes again after 24 hours.

The Best Kukri Machete – Reviews and Types

The Best Kukri Machete

The Kukri machete, or the kukhuri as it is known in Nepalese, is a unique blade that originated in the Himalayas as both a farming tool and an implement of war. The sharply inward curve of the blade, which leaves the edge of the blade at a nearly 90-degree angle to your hand, differentiates this tool from a traditional machete and offers numerous advantages in combat and for cutting your way through a jungle or forest. For this reason, it is a preferred blade among Preppers as an alternative or supplement to a traditional Bowie knife.  Check out some of the best Kukri blades available today – including the famous Kukri House blade!

Machete types

As a general rule, a jungle blade that’s shorter and has more mass towards the tip (e.g. a bolo or a parang) is better for cutting thicker wood, while a blade that’s longer and has less mass toward the tip (e.g. a regular machete) is better for brush, vines, and smaller diameter wood pieces.

The kukri (also spelled kukuri) has a shorter blade and more tip mass, making it an excellent chopper that can work as well as a hatchet for most softwood varieties.

The recurve blade style makes it a bit more challenging to sharpen, but it gives you more edge in a smaller footprint, and it changes the tool’s overall balance to enhance chopping ability.

The kukri’s combination of excellent chopping ability and “big knife” stabbing ability make it a formidable weapon, which is why it’s a staple in the villages and militaries of Central Asia.


Kukri Machete Reviews

GKH Nepal Authentic Gurkha Knife (Kukri House)

The Best Kukri Machete

This Kukri blade from the renowned Kukri House blade makers is designed to mirror the traditional Gurkha combat knife used by the Gurkha detachments of the British Army during World War II. In addition to carrying tradition, this blade carries a huge amount of force for combat. The 12” blade is made from high carbon spring steel and is 3/8” thick, rendering it nearly unbreakable as the Gurkha blades are known for. The relatively short length of the knife makes it best for use in combat – while it can hold its own in chopping wood, cutting through any sizable amount of wood will take a significantly long time.

The handle of the blade is 5.5” long and made of carved rosewood, which not only provides comfort but also adds to the aesthetics of the blade. The downside to the polished wood is that it can be relatively slippery if your hands sweat, although there is a lanyard hole so that you can strap the knife to your wrist for stability.

The blade comes with not only a sheath, but also two smaller knives known as the Karda – a sharp knife – and the Chakmak – a blunt blade that have their own pouches within the sheath for safekeeping. Note, however, that carrying these additional blades will add weight without adding a huge amount of utility.

Pros:

  • Traditional Gurkha-style combat knife from Gurkha House

  • 3/8” thick spine

  • Carved rosewood handle

Cons:

  • More expensive than many other Kukri knives

  • Handle can be slippery


Cold Steel 4000352 Kukri Plus Machete

The Best Kukri Machete

For the modest price, this Kukri from Cold Steel packs a significant amount of power and is one of the more durable blades on the market. Like most Kukris, the blade is constructed from high carbon spring steel and the 2.8 mm blade thickness, combined with the slightly long 13” edge length, provides a nice balance to the blade. More important, the length allows the blade to distribute impact force along its edge more evenly so that it does not get notched as much as shorter, thinner blades. The longer blade and stability make this blade ideal as a compromise between combat and chopping wood, although it will not excel at either as more purpose-specific blades would.

The main downside to this Kukri is the handle, which is made of polypropylene and can become quite slippery when your hand gets sweaty and cause blistering. The handle can be wrapped at the end to tie a lanyard to add stability (through the hole). On the plus, the handle does do an excellent job of dampening vibrations so that your hand won’t tire quickly when chopping wood in a survival situation.

The blade comes with a high-quality sheath, which is an added bonus for Kukris in this price range.

Pros:

  • 13” blade length distributes impact well

  • Good balance between combat and wood chopping

  • Comes with sheath

Cons:

  • Handle is slippery when wet


Ontario Knife 1064206 Co OKC Kukri Knife

The Best Kukri Machete

This Ontario knife rivals the Ka-Bar 2-1249-9 as the best Kukri for the money. Like the Ka-Bar blade, this Kukri is 12” in length and 3/16” thick along the spine, and both are made of high carbon spring steel. The Ontario knife carries a slight edge in combat thanks to the slightly more exaggerated curvature of the blade, which contributes to an overall more balanced knife when wielding it. This is especially helpful when fighting because it means that you can make multiple cuts in rapid succession, which is difficult with a blade that is even slightly out of balance.

When it comes to chopping wood, the Ontario Kukri is much better than most other Kukris in this price range, but falls slightly behind the Ka-Bar because the thickness of the spine does not taper to the tip as it does on the Ka-Bar blade. However, this same disadvantage turns to an advantage when splitting firewood, since the extra thickness at the tip of the blade will protect it from notching or catching on the wood.

The only detail that Ontario missed with this knife is the sheath, which is hardly as durable as the Kukri itself and will likely need to be replaced over the course of the knife’s lifespan.

Pros:

  • Well balanced for fast movements in combat

  • Thick and durable enough for chopping

Cons:

  • Not quite as easy to use for chopping as the Ka-Bar 2-1249-9

  • Poor-quality sheath


Ka-Bar Combat Kukri Knife

The Best Kukri Machete

This Kukri knife from Ka-Bar is designed specifically for combat, bearing the shortest blade length of any Kukri in our review at only 8.5”. The blade is made of epoxy powder-coated 1095 cro-van steel, a style of blade steel found more frequently on Bowie knives than on Kukri knives. The spine is 3/16”, on par with the thick and durable Kukris used for chopping, so you can be sure that it will stand up to a beating in combat. However, this thickness also makes the blade relatively heavy for its size at nearly one pound.

The small size that is unique to this Kukri also confers several other advantages. First, the blade is small enough that, even within the sheath, it could be concealed inside a jacket or pack. Second, there are no balance issues as are prominent on longer blades, and the Kukri can be sliced back and forth in rapid succession in combat. Overall, the curved design of the Kukri and the small size of this blade makes it a great alternative to a Bowie knife with the added ability to use it for small chopping jobs, similar to those you would use a hatchet for, in a survival situation.

The handle on this Kukri is both modern and as high-quality as the rest of the blade, constructed from Kraton G to prevent your hand from slipping. The blade also comes with a polyester sheath that does not have any durability issues.

Pros:

  • Small blade is easily concealed and good for combat

  • Durable construction

  • Kraton G handle

Cons:

  • Relatively heavy for size

  • Not particularly useful for chopping wood or bone


Ka-Bar 2-1249-9 Kukri

The Best Kukri Machete

This Kukri blade from Ka-Bar takes its overall design from the traditional Kukri, but makes a few significant changes that make it lighter. The blade is 11.5” in length and made from 1085 steel rather, while the spine of the blade is only 3/16” thick.

If you are looking to cut through more pliable plants like large weeds, the blade performs admirably – and of course the short length and light weight make it exceptionally dangerous as a combat knife.

The handle on this knife is made from Kraton G, which provides a relatively strong grip even in sweaty conditions and is easy to wield without getting blisters. The sheath that comes with this knife is one of its best features. Made from Cordura nylon, the sheath is at least as durable as the knife itself and offers numerous possible carry positions thanks to the multiple attachment points.

The 1085 steel is not coated and is far more prone to rust than the steel found in other Kukri blades. In addition, taken together, these blade specifications mean that the edge is not nearly as durable as the thick Gurkha-style knives and will notch far more easily if it is used for heavy-duty work like chopping wood.

Pros:

  • Lightweight 11.5” blade

  • Kraton G handle

  • Cordura nylon sheath

Cons:

  • 1085 steel is prone to rust

  • Thin blade edge can notch from chopping


SOG SOGfari Kukri Machete

The Best Kukri Machete

This inexpensive Kukri from SOG is a great introductory blade to find out if the Kukri style is for you, but don’t expect the same lifespan from this blade that you would from a more expensive traditional Gurkha knife. At 12” long, this blade is an exceptionally lightweight 15 ounces – the trade-off being that the spine of the blade is only 1/8” thick and the blade is constructed from relatively fragile 3CR13 high carbon steel. While the blade is perfect for self-defense because of the swift slashing movements you can make, it is relatively useless as a machete unless you are willing to risk severely notching the tip of the blade.

One advantage to this blade, particularly for survival situations, is the saw blade constructed into the spine of the knife. This somewhat makes up for the lack of chopping utility since you can saw your way through small pieces of wood – although this takes significantly longer than simply chopping with a more powerful Kukri or machete.

The handle on this Kukri is made from Kraton G, which holds its grip well even when wet with sweat. In addition, there is a lanyard hole on the handle so you can wrap your wrist for even more stability. The sheath that comes with the knife is of okay quality – it will last for the lifetime of this knife, but not as long as a more durable Kukri.

Pros:

  • Extremely lightweight

  • Saw blade on spine

  • Kraton G handle grip

Cons:

  • 1/8”-thick spine is relatively fragile

  • Not good for chopping


Schrade SCHKM1 Kukri Machete

The Best Kukri Machete

This inexpensive Kukri from Schrade is long enough for use as a true machete, in contrast to many of the shorter Kukris that are designed primarily for combat or as a compromise between purposes. At 13.3” long, the 3CR13 carbon steel blade remains a relatively light 23 ounces, in part thanks to holes drilled in the blade along its center to help with balance. However, a major disadvantage to this blade is that the spine is only 1/8” thick, which compromises the strength and durability of the blade when being used for heavy-duty chopping. That said, the cost of the knife is low enough that replacing it is not a significant issue if it is damaged from chopping wood or bone.

The handle on this knife is made from Safe-T-Grip, a relatively sticky material that provides a firm grip without slipping. However, even in the case that your hand does slip, the first 1.5” of the blade is dull and not meant as a cutting surface, so you have some measure of safety. The handle also has a lanyard hole so you can wrap your wrist for security.

The blade comes with a nylon sheath, which will last at least as long as the knife but is otherwise not particularly durable itself. It also comes with a ferro rod and striker plate, which is helpful if you need to use this knife in a survival situation.

Pros:

  • Long blade designed for chopping

  • Lightweight

  • Safe-T-Grip provides firm handle grip

Cons:

  • 1/8”-thick spine leaves blade fragile

  • Could use more weight for chopping

Things to Consider Before Buying a Kukri Knife 

Did you find out reviews of the top 5 Kukri knives helpful? I may not know your answer but whatever it is you can still benefit from the remainder of the article. Here we are going to discuss some of the most important factors to look out for when you are shopping for the Kukri for your purposes. In case you are still confused, you can use this guide to make an informed choice. Here are the factors to consider:

Blade Material 

You can never go wrong in your choice of a suitable kukri knife if you know the kind of blade material to go. Generally, this weapon and utility knife blade are made either of stainless steel or carbon steel. Stainless steel looks elegant and rust resistant but is cheaper, less durable and loses sharpness pretty fast.

Carbon steel, on the other hand, is very tough, durable, dust not blunts fast and more expensive. However, kukri knives made of carbon steel are poor at resisting rust. It means you cannot use such blades in an environment with saltwater for instance in angling. Stainless steel kukri knives are thus best for anglers.

Blade Design 

It is not enough to look at the material of the blade. Its design is also of utmost importance. The usability of a kukri knife depends on the curvature of the blade. Different blade shapes are suited for different purposes and therefore you must keep in mind the purpose for which you want the knife vis-à-vis the design of the blade.

The different blade shapes include spear points, drop points, tanto, dagger points, clip point, sheep’s foot and recurred kukri style. Discussing the recommended use of each of these shapes is beyond the scope of this resource. Nevertheless, I will encourage you to dig dipper into this to make the right decision in your purchase.

Handle Quality 

The only way to use a kukri machete efficiently is if it has a right grip. The grip, on the other hand, depends much on the material used for the handle and the level of comfort it provides. Traditional kukris have handles made of wood and rubber. The modern versions, however, feature more advanced materials such as Micarta and G-10.

It may be essential to test the handle regarding comfort, grip, and ergonomics. Just ensure it is non-slip and non-sticky. High-quality models feature handles fitted with hand-guards to prevent accidental slipping of your hand onto the sharp blade and thus guaranteeing you safety during use. The handle must also be well balanced and tightly fitted onto the blade.

Tang

A full tang Kukri knife has the entire unit made from a single solid piece with the two handle pieces added pinned on the proximal end of the blade one on each side. Half tang kukri knives only go the length of the handle but on half its width. A partial tang describes a knife with just a portion of tang pushed and then secured into the handle with an adhesive such as epoxy or glue.

Since most people buy kukri knives for heavy duty use, I would recommend that you go for full-tang versions. They may be expensive but that’s what you pay for high-quality stuff. Full-tang knives are durable and feel solid in your hands as you use them. Half-tang kukri knives tend to break at the junction between the blade and the handle.

Sheath 

Carrying a bare kukri knife in your hand is not feasible not only because it is a deadly weapon that intimidates to see but also because of your own safety. You will need to secure it when not in use. This requires a sheath specifically made for the particular knife you intend to buy. A good sheath should hold the knife securely. It should be of appropriate length to allow you to move easily. Keep in mind that the design, build material and aesthetics of the sheath are of utmost importance.

Price 

An often overlooked factor when shopping for anything is the price. Don’t be a victim of this problem. Setting out to shop for the kukri knife depends much on your budget since what you pay for is what you get. To get a high-quality kukri knife with the top of the range features, you must be ready to spend. Do your research and take advantage of promotions or discount coupons to get high-quality kukri machete at a good price.
