Print Dress
Print Dress

A fresh, whimsical print refreshes a timeless silhouette. Solid black piping outlines the scooped neckline while a gross grain ribbon tie defines the waist.

This might be a typical description of a print dress, but all know that we love print dresses. Aren’t they cool ?? Yes they always are 🙂

A fresh flowery print dress is perfect for any occasion; let it be a daytime party like wedding, bridal shower or even a special lunch with your loved one.

Print dresses are cool, but some points always need to be kept in mind when adoring one. Like print dress patterns should be chosen depending on self figure.  Small women should chose prints far apart with more of background space, while larger women should chose prints which are closer together and hence giving less background space.

When wearing floral prints, don’t be tempted to accessorize with a silk flower or buds on your shoes. A more sophisticated approach is to pair with metallic or bright sandals and an oversized bead necklace (pearl or gold) to counter the cuteness factor of a flower print dress.

At the physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have proven to be extremely effective for various disorders. More importantly, yoga is extremely effective in: 

> Increasing Flexibility – yoga has positions that act upon the various joints of the body including those joints that are never really on the ‘radar screen’ let alone exercised.
> Increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments and tendons – likewise, the well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body.

Surprisingly it has been found that the body which may have been quite rigid starts experiencing a remarkable flexibility in even those parts which have not been consciously work upon. Why? It is here that the remarkable research behind yoga positions proves its mettle. Seemingly unrelated “non strenuous” yoga positions act upon certain parts of the body in an interrelated manner. When done together, they work in harmony to create a situation where flexibility is attained relatively easily. >> read more

From balloon safety to hand-washing and hygiene, here are things to look out for when hosting a child’s summer birthday party.

Twitter is officially getting dumbed down.

For the second time in less than two months, Twitter has changed its @reply system, this time by removing an option that has existed for many months in an effort to appease confused newcomers.

The basic premise behind the @reply system is that it allows you to create a semi-public conversation with another Twitter user. To prevent you from having to listen in to conversations you might not care about, the default setting has long been to only show these @replies if you were following both people in the conversation. And that’s the choice most people stuck with.

But there was an option to receive all @reply messages from any users you were following. This led to an increase in noise, but it also exposed you to new Twitter users and conversations that you might have otherwise missed out on. I’ve had it turned on for over a year. But apparently that option has confused too many people, so Twitter is killing it. >> read more

In a culture that idolizes and promotes food as instant gratification, it’s no surprise that obesity is out of control. We swim upstream against an overwhelming current of continuous media messages that implore us to, “eat, eat, and eat!” – and then to eat some more. No wonder so many dieters fail, or fail to maintain their weight after losing pounds. If you’re one of those frustrated dieters, it’s time to stop “dieting” and start “diet-sizing.”

“Diet-sizing” is what I call the simple habits that enable you to lose weight gradually and keep it off. It’s about developing a routine of sensible eating and moderate exercise tailored to fit you – one you can comfortably live with for the rest of your life.

Here are ten tips for helping to develop a diet-sizing plan right for you. I implemented and refined these ideas while losing 40 pounds in five months – and most importantly, while maintaining my target weight of 155 to 160 pounds for the past five years. Not only do I look and feel younger, I’ve also significantly reduced my cholesterol and blood pressure to the point that I’ve been able to discontinue medications.  >> read more
