As you my avid follower or just used to check me out here you’ll probably know that I really loves sunny day and summer season. Because as this time, I can wear off my sunglasses at no time. Yes! I love sunnies the most and I cant live without it for sure.. ehhe Recently, me and the husband went to Canada for a short vacation, 3 days, though it’s still winter there but yet the sun goes rise up bright, I dunno what’s that happening to the weather there – I’ve found it quite unplesent and bipolar weather. Or I am not just used to this kind of weather they have..

Caring for ourselves can often seem like hard work. All those trips to the gym or the endless aerobic exercises religiously performed in front of the TV; giving up chocolate and potato chips because we know they are just food for fat; and buying products that are supposed to rejuvenate our skin and other such impossible miracles. We need to change the way we think about our bodies, because caring for them can be fun.

Make it fun

Looking after our bodies has to start from the inside, and yes, this does mean eating more sensibly, especially if the goal is to lose weight. However, even though some of your favorite food is suddenly a no-no, it does not mean that you cannot still enjoy your food. Food has become a fashionable business and it seems that almost every week there is a new cooking book available that promotes food that can be cooked fresh and fast, while maintaining a high nutritional benefit. Invest in one of these cooking books, and be sure to choose one that has recipes for food that you find interesting and actually want to eat. Keep in mind that a little bit of what you fancy does you good, so if you want that cream cake, have it. Just make sure it is only one serving and not several.

Exercise is the next step following a better diet, and this is where we can all start to groan and lose motivation. The best way to tackle exercise is to take up something that you find enjoyable, so that when you perform a particular activity it does not feel like exercise. For example, if you hate the repetitive nature and high intensity of aerobic exercise, but enjoy the variety of moves and tempos that tennis offers, take a few tennis lessons. This is still exercise but you are doing something you enjoy rather than something that feels like punishment. If you are new to exercising, take it easy and start with walking to get you into the swing of things.

Increased physical exercise may lead to a few aches and pains, particularly at the beginning of any new exercise regime, so it is important that you care for your body after your exercise. For example, your muscles will become tired and your bones may even ache and feel fragile if you have been for a long run. It is important that your body is cooled down and treated properly at such a time, so it is a good idea to have a chiropractic massage, such as that offered by Healthquest Chiropractic. Consider your mind too, and take the time to meditate or even just practice yoga as stress relief.

Caring for yourself should not be viewed as a chore, and there are plenty of ways looking after your mind and body can be enjoyable while improving your quality of life. Just remember not to rush into things and that everyone deserves a treat now and then.

Paris: the city of romance. There are few people who would dispute Paris’s claim of being the most romantic destination in the world, and couples from across the globe flock to its cobbled streets, bustling markets, and historic sites. If you’re planning to propose to your partner, think Paris. If you’d like to take in some amazing sights, experience a little culture, or shop for the perfect gift for that special someone, then Paris is the perfect place to be.

Exploring Paris as a couple

Paris is a fantastic destination for couples to explore, with its architecture, culture, elegance, and charm combining to create a quintessentially romantic city – a place to get lost in the language of love. It helps that Paris has, at one time or another, been the home of a host of famous authors, poets, and artists; true ambassadors for all things l’amour. It helps, too, that everything in Paris is so culturally different to anything you’ll find in the States; you’ll feel a long way from home, and be able to get to know your loved one like never before. After all, there’s nothing quite as romantic as making new memories together.

You’re bound to have an itinerary of the places you’d like to visit while in Paris. Perhaps you’re an art lover, literary enthusiast, or fan of decadent architecture, and want to take in the Louvre, the Sacré-Cœur, the Palace of Versailles, or the Luxembourg Garden. You may know very little about Paris, aside from famed sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, and Montmartre, which offer breathtaking views of the city. However you choose to explore Paris, it’s important to make the trip yours. The wall of “I love you” is particularly special, and features those three little words translated into over 250 languages; impress each other with how many you can say, or simply bask in the romance. Also, a Seine river trip is the height of romance and will allow you to explore Paris from the water and feel like the only two people in the world.

Making the most of the City of Romance

There are numerous ways to enjoy a charming stay in Paris away from the beaten track. Away from the busy streets and tourist attractions, Paris is home to so many treasures. Intimate bistros, fancy restaurants, open-air theaters where you can enjoy music and dancing, and street performers all add to Paris’s charm. The places that you choose to stay will be influential in invoking those feelings of romance, and taking rest in a charming château or “appartement”, with views across the river, will no doubt have you reaching for your lover’s hand. Paris is a historical city, and every turn has elements of its past, art, and literature; what’s more romantic than that?

Paris’s place as a cultural hub in Europe, as well as the echoes of the past that follow you down its many streets, will tempt you to stay in France forever. Indeed, if you do fancy seeing more that the country has to offer, staying in a charming hotel in the French Alps is another fantastic way to enjoy each other’s company and be drawn into one of the most romantic countries in the world.

If you like shoes as much as I do, then there are a couple of things that you need to know on how to buy one without regretting your decision and thus being able to use them for a long time. It is best to shop later in the day because feet “expands” during this time. If you are gonna purchase athletic shoes, try them on with a pair of socks that you usually wear. If you want an accurate measurement of your feet (in case you do not know it), measure them while standing since feet have a tendency to expand a bit when your weight keeps them flat on the ground. Make sure that all your toes can move freely inside the shoes.

How about when you buy shoes online which is becoming a common practice nowadays. It not only enables you to have access to all types and styles from top brands in just one click, it also lets you do all the shopping at the comforts of your home. One of the things to consider when you buy shoes online is the fact that you can have any size, color, or quantity you want without being restricted by what is in the store at the time. I often buy online and I must say there are a multitude of stylish footwear options at Zalora but this pair is my favourite.

There are a couple other things that you have to keep in mind like shipping charges. Some online shoe suppliers will offer free shipping or minimal charges if you order many pairs. Be sure to add shipping cost before you compare prices when buying shoes online. Also take note of the return policy so you can return or perhaps exchange shoes that do not fit and/or are defective without much difficulty. It is also best to buy from an online store that delivers goods within a day or two because you might need to wear those shoes right away. Best to keep them in hand.

Houndstooth is one of the most easily recognizable patterns in fashion. Many of us have houndstooth pieces in our closets, but we rarely think about where this design originated. The design itself has several different names, including dogstooth and houndstooth check. Although it appears as many different color combinations, it’s most commonly used in clothing as black and white broken checks that interlock and leave no gaps. This type of design is known as tessellation.

Origination

In a time when Scottish clans wore distinctive patterns to identify who was part of which clan in a battle, houndstooth was left clan-less. This didn’t stop members of clans from wearing it in the fourth century, a time when war and fighting were all too common. In fact, wearing a houndstooth tartan, or woolen cloth, became a peace strategy between the clans.

A Distinguished Mark

Although the pattern had humble beginnings, it was later used as a fashion symbol, signifying upper-class status. In the late 19th century, the design was used frequently in high-end women’s clothing. By the time the 1930s rolled around, the pattern was also worked into designs for men’s clothing, especially blazers and casual pieces.

Many people are likely to recognize the pattern beyond its Scottish origins, it is also commonly used in hats, such as the one that Sherlock Holmes dons in many of his depictions. Due to the nature of the design, it is also common to see houndstooth on the pants of chefs, since the pattern is perfect for hiding food stains and dirt.

Sport Coats and Beyond

These days houndstooth still appears commonly in men’s blazers and other suits. Women’s clothing uses the pattern for dresses and more, both in large print and small print, which is often referred to as puppytooth. There are also many different types of products that use this design, including houndstooth ribbon, which can be used for anything from a headband to a belt.

A Design Here to Stay

Houndstooth has come a long way from being used on the battlefield. The tessellated design is recognized all over the world, and it still remains an indicator of high fashion. It’s probably safe to say that if a design has been in some sort of use since the fourth century, then it is probably going to stick around for a while longer.

You know it’s going to be cold, so you have probably thought about the obvious ski jacket and waterproof ski pants. You know you will need ski boots (if you need a new pair, there is a good selection of ski boots to choose from at Skis.com) and some good, thick socks. What else should you pack to ensure your skiing holiday is comfortable, safe and – almost just as important – stylish?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other hints and tips

Remember that there is a weight limit for airline luggage allowance; wear your ski jacket when traveling to lighten the load; take travel wash with you for base layers and undies to reduce the amount you need to take. Pack clothes in plastic bags to keep them dry in case your suitcase is left standing on the runway in rain or snow.

Finally, when choosing your outerwear, don’t be afraid of bright colors. It will help people to recognize you, and you needn’t be shy because there will be all kinds of clashes and combinations when you get out onto the slopes. The most important thing will be that you feel warm and that you are safe and well protected.

City apartments come in many different styles, and some lend themselves to one particular type of interior design rather than another. A studio apartment, for example, may suit the professional bachelor, while a large apartment complete with original features might be the choice of a family that appreciates traditional design.

Traditional

A traditional style of furnishing has undeniable elegance and will make your apartment welcoming and inspiring. To achieve a traditional look, you will need vintage rather than modern furniture, such as a Chesterfield sofa for your seating area, an iron bedstead for your bedroom, and a bureau or leather-topped desk for your workspace. To avoid a cluttered look, keep the walls light with a subtly-patterned wallpaper or cream paint.

Living in a tiny space

Many of us who have to live in a small space still want to be able to say they have a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, and maybe even a dining room. However, many apartments these days are open-plan, so if you want different areas, you will need to make zones. You can do this by hanging curtains and screens, or even pieces of storage furniture, such as bookcases, to serve as room dividers.

You can also invest in modern furniture that has been specifically designed to capitalize on space. For example, if you only have one room, you can buy a pull-down bed that closes up to the wall when not in use – these come in a variety of sizes, from singles up to king-size. Drop-leaf tables that can be put up when needed are also a good choice for space-challenged apartments.

Airy and spacious

Other people may have airy and spacious apartments, but how do you make such a big space feel warm and welcoming? The first thing to do is dress the windows in an attractive manner to draw the eye to them and to warm the space up. Blinds are always a good choice and can be hung on their own or teamed with side drapes to create more of a feature.

If you have a lot of floor space, you should opt for larger furniture to fill it up. This is easily achieved with seating as there are plenty of sofas available that offer space for four people or more. It can also be a good choice to buy a sofa that has a chaise longue element to it. This not only gives another seating option but also gives a sofa a more interesting shape and can be used to zone a room.

If your large apartment is a converted industrial space, you could decorate it in the same theme, using industrial-style pendant lighting and wooden and metal furniture – the perfect choice for the urban dweller.

Whatever the size of your apartment, you should ultimately furnish it in a way that makes you feel comfortable and that you can live in, rather than focusing on a definite style that looks good but is less than welcoming.
