Park & Diamond Foldable Bike Hemet

Bike helmets are designed to sae your life in an accident, but, let’s be honest, they’re not typically built with fashion in mind. Maybe that’s part of the reason more than 97 percent of all fatal bicycle accidents involved riders without them. Enter the Park & Diamond Foldable Bike Helmet, the first of its kind that is both functional and looks great while wearing it.

Best Bakeries in New Orleans

New Orleans is a hot spot destination for people all over the world. It’s known for the special culture, nightlife and celebrations. In addition, the vibrant city is renowned for its food. The food is a mixture of Southern comfort, seafood and delightful baked goods. In that part of America, it’s easy to come by traditional Southern food and seafood, but the baked goods are a uniquely New Orleans specialty. The history and background with the French greatly influence this sect of food.
