Bold and Beautiful Fashions That Hug Your Lucious Curves

If you are a curvy woman you know how difficult it can be sometimes to accentuate your beautiful curves without drawing attention to extra weight you would prefer to minimise. Thankfully, there are wonderful styles out that are perfect for the vivacious, curvy woman and can help you accomplish these two all important goals with near effortless aplomb. Let's take a look at some of these.

Belted Trench

An all time classic is the belted trench. There is a reason this coat has endured for so many years in women's fashion. This wardrobe basic may only be surpassed by the famous little black dress. It is flattering, functional, and timeless. For the curvy woman, the belted trench is particularly wonderful. Cinch that belt around your waist, and you will instantly look all the more shapely. The cinched belt helps define your figure and creates the illusion of a smaller waist and classic hourglass silhouette.

Bootcut Jeans

Bootcut jeans are another perennial classic. These jeans have legs that begin to widen out from the knee down. You can find them in a lot of different leg sizes with names like boot and barely boot, but, unlike their more narrow legged cousins, these jeans help balance out the size of your thighs and hips by increasing the visual size of your lower leg. While you might thing you do not need to look any bigger, the end visual effect actually will make you look smaller and nicely proportioned. Flare jeans and wide leg jeans can also be similarly flattering for curvy women. Try on a few and go with the cut that looks best with your individual curves.

Curve Hugging Leggings

Leggings are quite trendy and hot, and they can really make a curvy women beautiful. Leggings hug your curves and help smooth everything out just like a good pair of tights. One of the popular choices right now are black wet look leggings. The wet look shimmers and adds a snazzy feminine touch. The black colour will also help make your thighs and hips look slimmer. Pair it with a pretty statement top that drapes over your hips and a set of spunky, unique heels for a truly fabulous look.

Wrap Dress

If you are considering dressing up, you can really flatter your curves with a lovely wrap dress. For some women, this is an all time favourite. It is flattering on nearly any body shape, and the simplicity of pulling the dress on and tying it is certainly another selling point. A wrap dress is particularly wonderful on a curvy woman because it drapes and highlights all your curves while camouflaging any little defects in your figure that you would prefer to keep hidden. Wrap dresses in dark colours can help slim and trim, and a dress sporting a pretty print can help further hide weight problems like a little extra around the tummy. Pair your dress with heels or boots, and you will have this look clinched. Another wonderful, dressy option for the curvy woman is a structured sheath dress. Unlike a shift, this dress is cut to fit closely and hug all your curves. Buy one that is made of a thicker fabric such as cotton twill. Unlike thinner, flimsier fabric, a good cotton twill or other heavier fabric has a more flattering drape, looks classy, and, best of all, will not cling to any lumps or bumps you might have. You can wear this look as is, or pair it with a structured cinch-waist blazer for a look that is a bit more business appropriate. It is totally up to you. As with the wrap dress, picking an outfit in a darker colour can also help slim your figure and make you look smaller than you are.

And Lots More

These are just a few suggestions, and there are many more styles out there that can look stunning on a curvy woman. Pencil skirts, colourblock dresses, and pinstripe pants are a few more fashion trends that will hug your curves and make you look amazing. When in doubt, take a friend with you when you go shopping. Their opinion is probably more accurate than your personal opinion. So, get out there and do a little fashion experimentation.

Steps to Becoming a Yummy Mummy

Okay ladies, I’m putting you all on notice. Do any of the following article titles strike a nerve, stir a memory or send your insecurities into overdrive?

Feed on Demand and Drop the Baby Weight in Six Weeks!
Cut Out Sugar and Regain Your Pre-Pregnancy Body!

Look At Me Now! Kim Kardashian’s Post- Baby Eating Plan
Look down at your body. Your breasts are probably swollen, sensitive to touch and leaking more dairy product than a split two litre carton in the middle of the freezer section; your once slender stomach in no longer pulled taut and smooth, your abs have been pushed apart and rearranged, swimming in a sea of loosened flesh, tired muscles and inevitable stretchmarks. Your feet, you’d think they would shrink, currently squeezing into sensible sneakers or convenient slip on’s and let’s not get started on the indignity of your nether regions – stitches, tears and the dreaded prospect of sex too soon after the fact. It’s just too much.

Every day you pick up a new magazine detailing the successes of famous women, conquering childbirth and beyond, sporting washboards and box gaps mere weeks after leaving the delivery suite and here you are, exhausted in your lounge room, disgusted by the folds of skin rolling over your maternity jeans. You’re failing. Even with a snap of exercise here and there, and cutting all of the crap from your diet, the weight won’t budge. Stop comparing yourself to cashed up cover girls, spoiled with a personal staff of cooks and personal trainers, nannies and dieticians, all bent on carving out the best product possible. Stop it now. Instead take up these five life changing tips and be surprised by how easy it can be to change your life – you won’t slide into a size ten to twelve straight away, but you’ll be happier, healthier and sexier within a couple of weeks

Get More Sleep

I know, I know, you’re trying, right? Sleep and newborns are contradictory creatures, particularly after another early morning feed; short of cloning your boobs, there’s not much you can do in the shut-eye department, or so it would seem. Yes, it SEEMS that way. Solution? Two options. Express a bottle or two and call your partner to arms, laying down the realities of parenthood – it took two to tango, time to do his part – or sleep fifteen minutes earlier, every night. Fifteen minutes. Not a huge amount of time really; after seven consecutive nights of an extra fifteen minutes, you will notch up an extra two hours of sleep a week.

Buy Smaller Plates

After a day of doing a million things at once, it’s hard to measure your own appetite, assuming you need volume calories to cope with the demands of a baby. While you will crave a pick me up every now and then (Milk Way chocolate bars, anyone?), cut back on meal time overloads and downsize your plates. Really. Take your own crockery out the back and smash it over the tile, cleaning up the mess and replace it with a serving friendly dish. We are visual creatures, attracted to large portions, particularly when we’re trying to survive, thrive and recover. A small dish will make portions seem larger and more filling, satisfying our psychosomatic desire for sustenance.

Spoil Yourself

While a spa treatment may be out of the question at the present moment, spend an extra ten minutes in the morning slathering yourself in your favourite lotions, while your partner, mother, friend or mammary stand-in entertains the little one. Or why not treat yourself at ? It’s important not to lose yourself in the Mummy identity, you are much more than your biological and social function and ten minutes being kind to yourself will ground those feelings of uncertainty. Remember, you’re awesome, before and after birth, no amount of stretchmarks will change that.
Being “yummy” is a state of mind; are you ready to change yours? Let me know how you feel below.

Gift Ideas for Music Lovers

Christmas is fast approaching and in no time it's here once again. For some shoppers (like me), listing and buying their gifts as early as this month can be an advantage for you can still pick from wide range of colors and sizes, stocks are still plenty and there's not much crowd yet at the stores. When Christmas draws near, some items will not be available anymore so you'll end up buying something that you don't really like.

Anyway, here are some gift ideas for music lovers.

1. Earphone or headsets - perfect when they are listening to music.
2. For advance music lovers or professionals, a korg volca bass at musicians friend can be an option. 3. iPod and other gadgets
4. Musical instruments (guitar, drum, flute, violin) . Know what they like first before buying.
5. Speakers

Taylor Swift, Her Guitar and Music

If there is one young singer, composer and musician that most teens and young should idolize these days, it should be Taylor Swift. She's an enigmatic young singer-composer of her generation, bagging numerous music awards. Her youthful clean music draw crowds all the time.

Her grandmother influenced her musicality while she was growing up and her singing at the church choir serves as her early exposure to music. I hope the young ones will get inspiration from her, you can own a youth guitar but you need to strive hard to pursue your dreams.

Thinking about Investing in a Badger Hair Brush?

A badger hair brush absorbs water, perfectly applies shaving cream or soap, lathers well, and leaves your facial hair and skin prepared for a clean, close shave. It is worth the investment to get one for every man’s shaving toolkit and can transform your morning routine into a relaxing experience.

 When shopping for a new brush, choose the finest grades of hair, which includes any of the following badger hair grades:
  • Pure badger 
  • Best badger 
  • Super badger 
  • Silvertip badger 
  • Special grades 

Pure badger is usually of medium length, while super badger has the longest and softest hair. You may want to visit a shaving store to feel various brush options so that you can more easily determine which grade of hair you like best.

Choose a Quality Brush

High-quality brushes can be expensive, but are usually well worth the investment. Cheaper, plastic brush handles can peel after repeated use or washing, so they won't offer the same value as a quality brush. It is normal to see some shedding, but if you find that your brush is shedding significantly within the first year, then it most likely won't provide the results that you are looking for.

Caring for It

Regularly clean your brush with water and a mild soap. Borax can also be used for an intense cleaning. Allow the brush to hang upside down to dry. If you leave it right-side up while it is wet, the water can drip into the handle and begin affecting the glue. This will cause the hairs to fall out faster and can lead to a number of other problems with your new brush.

Ask an Expert

Ask your barber or an expert at your local shaving store about what they recommend for your skin and facial hair type. There may be specific shaving products and brushes that can help to enhance your daily shave.

Once you have made the investment in a quality badger hair brush, it is important to properly care for it going forward. Consider investing in a holder or stand that will keep your brush hanging upside down whenever it is not in use.With good care, a brush can last 10-15 years.

Maul Regular and Boring with a Workaholics Bear Coat

Everyone needs a little time to wind down and relax at the end of a hard day’s work. Many people choose to watch TV shows to ease their mind and forget about their worries. Stress can really derange a good night’s sleep, so it is important to relax before bed. This type of tradition has been going on since man began telling stories around a campfire. The art of storytelling has evolved to what it is today.

Many people choose to watch shows that are funny before bedtime so that they can have a good laugh and go to bed happy. Face it, that guy Blake from “Workaholics” is really funny. You’ll get tired from uncontrollably laughing after watching any episode and that is “fur sure”. TV shows can give you great ideas on how to dress up for your next wild party or Halloween bash. Showing up to a party wearing a Workaholics bear coat could be the best idea you’ve never had.

Next Level Wardrobe and Fashion
Your spirit journey with your power animal doesn’t have to stop at parties and Halloween. You can wear the bear every day. Imagine how awesome your co-workers will know you are when you show up to work with full-on claws. Taking your outer layer of clothing to the next level will not only impress friends and family. It will make you look sweeter than honey. No person, male or female, can resist the animal attraction. Carry a jar of honey around with you in your pocket for the full effect.

Have Fun and Let Your Wild Side Out
One thing is for certain. Life is short and having fun is awesome. People spend too much time worrying about the future or regretting the past. Animals don’t care about anything but the present. They’re all about getting their shelter, eating, and reproduction. Many people could do well to remember a bit of their animalistic nature. Take your stand against lame and boring right now. Don’t give another second of your life to the negativity that is not having a Workaholics bear coat.

4 Ways to Style Boyfriend Jeans

Apart from skinny jeans, I love boyfriend jeans cut. In fact, I have bought another pair of jeans few weeks ago that is on sale. The hem is just too long for me but I managed to just fold it just like the one in the image above and paired it with a nice wedge.

I love wearing boyfriend jeans for quick errands and meet up with my friends. Nothing formal but not too dowdy.

I love how this jeans is paired with a blazer as it makes the whole look casual but sophisticated which I love the most.

How to Plan and Prepare for a Day Spa Visit

Day spas in PA are often the perfect escape for those who need a relaxation after a long, grueling day. However, in order to enjoy that moment of total freedom and comfort, you need to know how to plan for a trip to the day spa. Otherwise, you’ll come unprepared, and you won’t be able to make the most of your experience. So follow these tips and suggestions for the ultimate escape!


First things first, choose a spa you wish to go to. You’ll want to find out which spas are in somewhat close driving distance and have decent reputations. Among these spas, see what services are offered. Some spas are designed to be more like beauty salons, while others relate more to holistic healing. Look online to see if the spa offers that mud-bath treatment you want, and don’t forget to examine the prices. Some services may come in packages, so see what these are and what you’ll have to pay for them.

Also research what the facilities are like and who will be administering these services. Look at the staff’s credentials and qualifications. Go with the spa that appeals to your body’s needs and wallet the most. Then decide on a date to go. Confer with your group so you can pool schedules and decide on the best time. Aim for a weekday morning, when the spa is usually less busy. Set up an appointment when you’ve made these decisions.


You might wonder how you should prepare your body for an appointment at day spas in PA. For one, know that you should shower as well as shave your legs and armpits prior to the appointment. Put on deodorant and take care of other hygiene needs. Staff will be in close contact and touching you, especially if you’re undressed, so you will want to look and smell okay. There will be a locker at the day spa, so keep in mind these size limitations when you’re storing away your clothing; they may not fit or may wrinkle if you bring the wrong clothes. Don’t neglect to pack your bathing suit, workout clothes, or even your own spa robe if you prefer it. Remember to dress comfortably and leave jewelry at home.

Rock Chic Style

You don;t éven need to be a singer or a rock star who sings or carrying a resonator guitar hard case to pull this style. All you have to do is to find rocker chic clothing like leather pants, black tops, boots, studded bracelets and more.

There are affordable clothing on various thrift clothes, so if you are patient enough you can score nice pair of jeans and tops to wear.

Lusting for a Maxi Dress

I know it's not summer anymore in our part of the woods but this chevron maxi dress had me lusting over it since last night. I'm already missing summer where we can wear dresses and shorts, wearing comfy and carefree clothing.

Chevron prints are really in fashion these days. Actually, I have seen quite a lot of tis prints on various items such as clothes, bags, curtains, even on gadget accessories.

I might have to put this on my list so next summer if maxi dresses are still in fashion (even if it is not), I'll have to make sure I get one of this.

Accent Pillows for the Home

In the past few days, I spent my time browsing online for various home inspirations. I bought some memory foam toppers for my room and i have yet to find a nice case for them.

In the meantime, I'm actually getting bored with the way our living room looks like so I thought I should give it a make-over soon. Our plain looking ginger colored sofa needs some upgrade. I can't change it to white color because I don't want to end up preventing not to get it too dirty all the time that's why the old color will stay.

The only thing that came to my mind is to put beautiful accent pillows that can make our living room more lively. The picture above will serve as my inspiration. However, I need to choose some other colors because our sofa is not white. Now, I have to think what colors will match our ginger-colored sofa... hmmm.. let me search for more.

Bracelet Layering

These bracelets layering craze has bitten me too. I found myself going to the malls like Forever 21 and other shops to find some nice bracelets of different sizes, colors and thickness.

I was so delighted that I can layer each of them and paired it with my watches and my whole attire. The leather bracelets with studs are perfect to pair with chrono or oversized watches like that of Michael Kors and more.

How to Rock Your Style Without Breaking the Bank

Style Under Budget Contest 2

Looking Good!
You’re a fashionista and you make no apologies for your love of style. However, you acknowledge the fact that your budget is limited. You don’t have to settle for dowdy, outdated clothes just because you don’t have a fortune to spend. Instead, by investing your dollars wisely and engaging in a few simple strategies, you can look like you stepped out of the pages of a fashion magazine, without busting your budget.

Shop Your Closet
You may want to empty your entire closet and start over from scratch, but there is really no need. After all, you chose the clothes in the first place.  By shopping your closet you can rediscover that cute skirt that always draws glances from that cute guy you see on the bus every day, or that gorgeous cashmere sweater that exactly matches the color of your eyes. After you pick out all the “keepers” in your closet, go through the rest and donate those items that are wearable.

Afterwards, you will have more room in your closet. As a bonus, you will know exactly what pieces you need to fill any gaps in your wardrobe.  You can shop for staples like pumps and blazers or accessories like scarves, belts and cute hand bags with the knowledge of the exact colors and textures that will match the pieces you already have.

Shop Discount Stores and Consignment Shops
Savvy shoppers know that it is not always necessary to pay designer prices to maintain a fashion forward look. Discount stores are ideal sources for trendy items that you don’t expect to wear for more than a season or two. Consignment shops, on the other hand, often contain gently worn designer and other high end items at bargain basement prices.

Invest in Quality
While it is possible to save money on many wardrobe items, the saying “penny wise and pound foolish” also applies. Especially when purchasing wardrobe staples such as an overcoat, an interview suit or even foundation garments, purchase the very best quality that you can afford.  Stick to natural materials such as wool, cotton, silk, linen, leather and cashmere. Seek out details such as matching patterns and deep hems that signal that a garment is well-made. By spending a bit more money now you will have garments that you will be proud to wear for years to come.

Tailor-Made to Fit
One reason that celebrities and very rich people always look so well put together is because of how they look in their clothes. Workouts and personal trainers help, of course. However, there is another factor that enters into the picture – many outfits that celebrities and wealthy people wear are tailor made.  While you probably cannot afford an entire outfit of tailor made clothes, professional alteration services are often available at very reasonable prices at your local dry cleaning establishment. In addition, many better-quality department stores will hem pants legs and alter suits for free or for a nominal charge. Once you see the difference a few nips and stitches make in how your clothing fits, you will never be satisfied with wearing anything straight off the rack again.

How Fire-Retardant Clothing Is Becoming More Comfortable

Fire-retardant clothing is important to factory workers, car mechanics, electricians and any other worker in an environment that has a risk of flash fire or arc blasts from electricity. Most clothing is not fire proof, which means that should a ball of fire suddenly appear around you, your clothes could catch on fire. Wearing protective clothing might not mean you get away completely injury free, but it can be the difference between minor and serious burns, or even the difference between life and death. For a long time, clothing that was resistant to fire was bulky and uncomfortable to wear, but today, work uniforms are being adapted in a few ways to make workers more comfortable.

A big factor in the comfort of work clothing is weight, and fire resistant clothing is getting lighter. Jobs can require carrying all sorts of weights, and at the end of the day you’re exhausted, so the last thing you want is a pound of extra weight from your thick clothing. There are materials that are light and comfortable to wear that are still fire retardant.

The breathability of a garment is another major factor in its overall comfort. Breathability is the ability of an item of clothing to retain or disperse heat. On a hot day, you want a garment that will disperse your body heat and prevent you from getting uncomfortably warm. On a cold day, you want to keep some of that heat inside and prevent cold air from penetrating. A perfectly breathable garment will provide a good balance of cooling and warmth.

Manages Moisture

The ability to manage moisture is the final component of comfortable fire-resistant clothing. The jobs that require protective clothing also tend to require a lot of hard work, which means sweat is an inevitability. Cotton-based fabrics tend to get saturated in sweat, but they never really dry out. Fire-retardant garments can be made to remove moisture from the skin, spread it out along the surface of the garment, and then let the moisture evaporate. There’s no longer any reason you have to sacrifice comfort for protection.

Efficient Carpet Cleaning Tips and Tricks

If you are sick and tired of looking at the stains on the carpet that surrounds your home, try several easy methods to remove the unwanted look of old dingy spots that you may think are difficult to banish. Bradenton carpet cleaning can give you advice so you can kiss your cola and mud stains goodbye.

Scrub and Wash

If you have several spots that are embedded in your carpet, you may think that it is impossible to remove them without professional help. You have even resorted to moving a carpet or table over the spot so you do not have to look at it anymore. There are a few methods you can try at home to get some of the color out and to lighten the area. Depending on what the stain is, you may have to try each step a few times to see results. Begin by mixing baking soda and water in a bucket. Dissolve the solution until the water looks clear and translucent. You can apply some of the solution to the stain and let it penetrate for a few minutes. Remember, it is vital that you blot the stain and not scrub it to death. When you treat a stain, your initial reaction may be to scrub it profusely with all of your might, but in the end it may do more harm than good. Your force will push and embed color into the carpet fibers making it more difficult to remove.

Clean with Care

Try purchasing a carpet cleaning solution from your local store to remove the stain. Once a spill happens, immediately tend to it, because the longer you wait, the greater the chance the stain will stay on your carpet and soak into the fibers or the pad. Use a soft cloth or towel to get the job done. It will be easier on the carpet and it will soak up the cleaner quicker than a paper towel. Once you have tried one of these methods, let the area air dry and repeat if you are not happy with the results.

A Fresh Look

If you have tried a few Bradenton carpet cleaning methods with minimal results, repeat the process as necessary, and your carpet will look clean and spotless as the day you had it installed.

Wear Your Work Boots and Stay Safe

There is something extremely rewarding about hard work. Spend a full day outside hammering away at a construction job. Come home and take a well earned and relaxing shower before dinner. Go to bed and then get up early and do it all again the next day. Staying active is a great way to keep your mind sharp and your body strong. This is part of the reason why physical labor is so rewarding. Another reason could be that the progress of this type of work is easily visible. Each day, a construction site will look more and more like the finished building.

Finally, the job will be done and you will be able to walk through a building that you helped create from a pile of metal and stone. Working outside is always going to be more dangerous than a sit down job. Heavy objects can fall and damage your feet. Injuries to the feet take a long time to heal. Be smart and wear your work boots in Butler, PA.

Take Precautions to Ensure Safety

Safety is important whether you’re on the ground with a jackhammer or on a roof with a half ton of shingles. Protective gear for your eyes should be worn at all times. Small pieces of wood or metal shavings can fly off at random and strike you anywhere. This can cause serious injury to your eyes. A hard hat is also recommended for most construction jobs. Debris can fall from on high at random when you are in the process of building something. Be prepared for anything and everything that can go wrong.

Be Prepared for Any Accident

Be sure to take every precaution necessary when you begin work. Accidents can happen anywhere. Even in your own basement. A little safety can go a long ways in protecting your health and well being. Hard work is a great and respectable way to earn a living. Don’t let your career be cut short by any circumstances. Don’t let your work boots get too worn down from constant use. Protect your feet by visiting a store that sells work boots in Butler, PA.
