Fashion and style


Wherever you go you will see people in different attires depending on the season and the occasion. What you need to note is that fashion trends keep changing from time to time and you need to be abreast. Here are tips that will keep you looking great irrespective of the season.

I’ve created a trends cheat sheet below with some of the recurring looks and pairings seen both on the catwalks and on the stylish set, to help you update your own fall fashion outlook.

  1. Layer Up: Please don’t hate me, America, but I’m not a fan of leggings for the sake of leggings. Worn with a tunic length top, sweater, or boots, however, you’ve got a cozy style statement. While you’re at it, top things off with a leather jacket. Look for interesting details such as belt buckles, suede, or metal accents and interesting shoulder detail to add a seasonal note to your look.
  2. Be Bold: While the trend for ornate bib necklaces is still going strong, earrings as a focal point are also on trend. Interior designer turned jewelry designer Stephanie Kantis has a fresh take on hoop earrings with her Paris single round earrings (bronze dipped in gold). At $125, they’re a smart investment that will see you through the season.
  3. Still Going Green: Pantone named emerald green the top shade of 2013. For fall though, try more muted shades for a richer more seasonal effect. Marc Jacobs showed softer shades of evergreen worn head to toe. Think soft sweaters with wool skirts in a similar color family or subtly patterned. Other jewel tones like bold amethyst or ruby red are also a fantastic wardrobe pick me up.
  4. Give Yourself the Boot: While over-the-knee leather boots were a strong style statement, they can be difficult or impractical to wear on a day-to-day basis. Try to challenge the look by pairing the same-colored hose and ankle boots with a pencil skirt.

Known Natural Tricks To Keep Your Weight In Check

Many people struggle with weight and fitness issues all over the world. The major reasons being that they do not know how to manage their lifestyle and what they eat. Natural products have been known to have reconstructive agents that will help any person lose the extra pound and have a healthy body all through. Here are some natural tricks to keep you thinking.

Follow a healthy and realistic eating pattern. You have embarked on a healthier lifestyle, now the challenge is maintaining the positive eating habits you’ve developed along the way. In studies of people who have lost weight and kept it off for at least a year, most continued to eat a diet lower in calories as compared to their pre-weight loss diet.

Keep your eating patterns consistent. Follow a healthy eating pattern regardless of changes in your routine. Plan ahead for weekends, vacations, and special occasions. By making a plan, it is more likely you’ll have healthy foods on hand for when your routine changes.

Eat breakfast every day. Eating breakfast is a common trait among people who have lost weight and kept it off. Eating a healthful breakfast may help you avoid getting “over-hungry” and then overeating later in the day.

Get daily physical activity. People who have lost weight and kept it off typically engage in 60—90 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity most days of the week while not exceeding calorie needs. This doesn’t necessarily mean 60—90 minutes at one time. It might mean 20—30 minutes of physical activity three times a day. For example, a brisk walk in the morning, at lunch time, and in the evening. Some people may need to talk to their healthcare provider before participating in this level of physical activity.


Beauty Advice To Keep You Looking Young

Every person wants to keep looking young irrespective of their age. Unfortunately, we all get old at some point and it becomes almost impossible to hide it from the face. You can avoid going to that point by following the beauty tip below.

Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. Surges of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol cause blood pressure to rise and the heart to beat faster. These days, when our stressors seem unrelenting (a steady stream of job pressures, traffic jams, money problems), chronic doses of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. “Sixty to 90 percent of all doctors’ visits each year are related to anxiety, depression, obsessive anger and hostility, insomnia, high blood pressure, heart attacks — all problems caused by stress,” says Herbert Benson, MD, author of the landmark book The Relaxation Response and a founder and director emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine in Boston.

The most effective way to halt this destructive chain of events is to meditate, using what Dr. Benson calls “the relaxation response.” The technique involves repeating a mantra — a word, sound, phrase, or prayer — for as little as 10 minutes a day. A 2005 study conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston showed that meditation helped prevent age-related changes in the brain.
