italian village for sale on ebay

Have you ever considered Ebay for your real estate enquiries? Maybe you should. I will now, at least.

Ebay Italy must have been experiencing some high volume traffic recently. After all, it’s not every day you can bid on an Italian alpine village for less than what a two-bedroom condo goes for in Toronto.

ikea russia wins instagram with ps 2014 campaign

We at Style at Home are avid Instagrammers, but this week we tip our hat to IKEA Russia for harnessing the power of this popular app and creating an Instagram website for the new PS 2014 collection. Honestly, I’m willing to just give them my hat because this is the greatest creative in-app advancement since the developers added photo editing and video capabilities (which, really, wasn’t breaking the mold anyway).

win: irobot scooba floor mopping robot

Let me just start by saying that I hate to scrub floors. I mean, there’s sweeping, there’s vacuuming, there’s mopping, and then there’s Cinderella-like laborious scrubbing. And that cleaning ethic definitely came from my mom.

This woman is so dedicated to keeping her home clean that she hand scrubs the hardwood floors, despite the various easy-to-use mops that have been bought in the past. What can I say? The woman is traditional. It has now gotten to the point where her knees and lower back cannot handle the chore anymore. Thankfully, I could finally provide her a non-painful solution – a hands-free machine that would do the job for her!
