Growing up, I used to have the dream of becoming a ballerina. There was a time I’d invent a dance of my own or start imitating the prima ballerinas I’d see on TV. My parents enjoyed my shows, I loved the attention I was getting, so logically I kept insisting on ballet lessons.
I still remember the first day at the ballet studio vividly, my mum taking me there, carrying my cute equipment. Instead of being afraid of the challenge like most girls there, I was all excited and couldn’t wait to start practicing.
Not all of us have the slim figure or youthful look, and that’s alright, because beauty is versatile. Of course, it takes the right clothing pieces to show off this beauty in the best way possible, even if you’re ageing and plus size.
Some of the basic and most diverse pieces of clothing every woman should make use of are the jackets because other than being the outer layer, protecting you from the weather in the colder days of the year, they’re ideal for covering your troublesome bits in a flattering way, with a stylish touch at that, year-round.
A quick search of ladies jacket designs online and you’re sure to stumble upon many options, and those timeless pieces that never go out of style make the ideal investment to complement any of your outfits, no matter whether it’s casual, classy or chic. Read More
The Internet has revolutionized today’s society, and it is only normal that the sales industry is affected as well. Everyone with internet access has the opportunity to shop while at home. Clothes, shoes, food – they are all just a few clicks away. What came as a surprise to me, though, is the fact that now even pharmacies can be found online. This is useful for many reasons, and here are some. Read More
I have always been confused why people remove their wisdom teeth when they aren’t causing them any major problems. Until my dentist recommended that I should have mine removed as well, that is. I was baffled by this opinion – why wouldn’t he just fix whatever was wrong with my molars like he does with the rest of my teeth? Well, there’s a whole philosophy behind that, so his answer was pretty elaborate. But still, I’m glad I asked. Here’s a bit info for all of you who still have your wisdom teeth and think you should have them forever.
My dentist explained that there are various reasons for wisdom teeth removal. A very common one is that they are impacted. Since they are so far back in your mouth, they can easily become trapped in the gums or jawbone causing you pain. Another reason is that they may grow in the wrong angle causing problems and pressure to the other teeth in the mouth. Also, some people’s jaws may not have enough room for extra teeth. And in my case, because of cavities.
Because of their location, cleaning my wisdom teeth was pretty much mission impossible, so it was only a matter of time when cavities would form. Even though I had changed nothing in my daily oral hygiene routine, I started experiencing a lingering bad taste in my mouth more often. At one point I couldn’t even mask it with breath fresheners and that’s how I knew it was time to visit my dentist. He thought that removing my wisdom teeth was a better solution than fixing them. Although the decay was pretty small, it was located in a spot that was impossible to reach and fix.
No matter how it may sound, wisdom teeth removal is a simple procedure that any experienced dentist can perform. The entire process lasts about 45 minutes or less, which is normal for oral surgery. Depending on the type of anesthesia, every patient responds differently but still most people feel very little to no pain at all after the procedure is done. You will feel some level of discomfort for about three days or so but the entire process of healing takes longer, usually a few weeks. The dentist will give you some tips and advice on what to do and what to avoid doing and eating for a faster recovery. Keep the following advice in mind.
DO use an ice pack on your face to prevent skin colour changes or swelling. Use moist heat if you have a sore jaw and practice opening and closing your mouth. Eat soft foods and drink a lot of fluids. The second day you can brush your teeth but make sure you avoid the blood clots. Take the drugs prescribed by your dentist regularly and if you feel some pain, fever or the swelling does not go away, call your dentist.
DON’T drink through a straw and do not rinse your mouth too harshly. Instead, be very gentle and you can even rinse your mouth with salt water. Do not eat hard or sticky foods, and if you are a smoker, make sure you avoid cigarettes for a few days as smoking can slow the healing process.
A couple of years ago I started getting these awkward foot cramps whenever I spent more than two hours walking. And now when I’m looking back, I’m not even surprised. I mean, I used to be a blind fashion follower, so naturally, whenever I saw shoes that I liked, I made sure to have them in my closet, without paying too much attention to the features they had, or they didn’t have as a matter of fact.
Australians are making it big in the hospitality businesses, and it should come as no surprise considering we are a nation with foodie culture, while at the same time we are known to dream big when it comes to becoming our own bosses.
What this means is the climate is ideal for joining up the hospitality industry, either with a café, restaurant, pub or the like, yet given that competition is also on the rise, more than ever, you have to have in mind it takes a great deal of preparation, and most importantly investment, to succeed.
Feeling tired and achy is pretty much a part of every grownup’s everyday life thanks to our busy and hectic days, but sometimes, besides that, it can also be a result of magnesium deficiency in the body. The thing is, even though you might be regularly eating foods rich in magnesium, you still may not be getting enough of it, which is why you should turn to magnesium supplements. Magnesium can be purchased in the form of a capsule, pill or oil, and in today’s blog post we will specifically focus on the wonders that magnesium oil can do for your overall health and body.
Magnesium oil is made from a blend of water and magnesium chloride flakes. When these two ingredients are mixed together, the final result is a liquid that has an oily feel but is not actually an oil. Magnesium chloride is an easily absorbent form of it, which makes it the perfect choice for topical usage. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of magnesium oil. Read More
Ah, the timeless question: what to wear to a formal event? If you’re a woman, formal wear usually involves a certain type of a dress or skirt, either floor or mid-length. But what if it’s a particularly chilly winter evening? Or, the idea of putting on a formal dress is just not appealing for you? Can a pant suit be an acceptable outfit to wear to a formal occasion?

There’s no doubt that uniforms are powerful tools for most businesses, but they are an especially important factor for hospitality businesses that deal with serving food or drinks to guests. Unlike “softer” businesses, like those in the retail or corporate industry, uniforms used in pubs, cafes, and restaurants need to be as hard working as their environment is. On top of that, they also need to be attractive – considering how great presentation is important for making a good, lasting first impression. As such, choosing the right uniform for your hospitality business can be a lot more complicated than it seems.
Let’s have a chat about coffee, over coffee (I’m having my cup as I’m writing this). It’s not surprising to see why there are so many coffee addicts: it’s energising, and just what we need to get us on our feet in the morning, especially for those of us who aren’t morning persons.
Have you heard about this remarkable organic fabric that provides so many environmental and health benefits? I’m talking about bamboo – the best thing since sliced bread. To many people the idea of wearing bamboo on their bodies can sound a bit unusual. After all, isn’t bamboo this sturdy material that floors, furniture and even bridges are made of? Yes, it is. But bamboo is also a very versatile natural resource which can be transformed into fabric that’s unbelievably soft, comfortable and healthy for the planet and its inhabitants. Here are just some of the benefits you can expect to receive if you enrich your wardrobe with organic, bamboo pieces.
Supreme Comfort Everyone Can Afford
Life’s too short to put up with uncomfortable, scratchy clothes. But no average person has the money to buy high-end luxurious fabrics their whole life. So, if you’re looking for the softest and most comfortable fabric which also comes with a reasonable price tag, bamboo is the answer. Once you discover the luscious feel of bamboo on your skin, you will never want to go back to cotton or a different fabric again. Whether it’s bamboo womens tops, baby clothes, or men’s socks, this fabric offers supreme comfort for the whole family.
Extremely Breathable and Temperature Regulating
But what are comfy clothes if they make us feel sweaty and clogged up inside? Most clothes today are only fairly breathable. And if they’re breathable, then they are not that great in keeping us warm. And this is where bamboo beats every other fabric. Clothes like bamboo womens tops, leggins, and underwear are extremely breathable and moisture-absorbent. If the clothes your body comes into close contact with are made of bamboo, it means your skin will get stay dry and fresh longer. Incredibly useful if you’re busy and you have no time to change clothes throughout the day.
But not only is bamboo breathable, it’s also highly adaptive to the body’s heat. The structure of its fibres allows bamboo to keep the body refreshingly cool when it’s hot, but also cosy and warm during colder temperatures. This makes bamboo clothes unique pieces which you can wear all year round without having to worry about temperatures.
Anti-bacterial and Hypo-allergenic
We spend the most of our days in clothes, so naturally you’d want only healthy fabrics to touch your skin. But chemicals are commonly used as part of the manufacturing process of many fabrics, and can remain around even when the fabric is transformed into clothes. All that moving around creates friction that unleashes the toxins which can cause various irritations if you have particularly sensitive skin. Prolonged exposure to these toxins is even found to increase the risk of skin cancer.
On the other hand, the production of bamboo fabrics does not involve any chemicals whatsoever. Bamboo has the inherent ability to be anti-bacterial and pest-resistant which is why it doesn’t need to be chemically treated. The plant itself has a natural protective agent called “bamboo kun” and most of it remains preserved even after the plant has been transformed into fabric.
Though we should feel blessed to be part of such a technologically advanced era, modern lifestyle is taking its toll on our well-being. Worst of all is we’re not really aware of it. We live our lives thinking if we get in the habit of exercising enough, and start eating a well-balanced diet, we’d be in primary health. And then we get devastating results something still isn’t right.
The reason our health still isn’t as great as we expect it to be is because of being exposed to so many toxins around, and in fact eating food that’s been deprived of the many necessary nutrients thanks to all the processing it goes through (yes, even food with labels that say it was enriched with certain vitamins).
Add to this a bit of stress exposure on a daily basis, with the lack of sleep, and health issues are bound to arise. However, fret not, this is where you can get help in the form of supplementation, that you can find like the well-known Nutralife vitamins online as well as minerals, and herb-based products with a bit of search.
