Top Blouse Designs for Wearing Wedding Sarees

 

Designer blouses are the best type of blouses that can be worn with modern sarees. Their charm and appeal is subtle and adds edge to the personality and you get the attention you deserve.

Previously Indian ladies were accustomed to only few styles of draping and blouse types. However, designs have drastically changed now. These days, an urban woman wants to look unique as much as possible. Nevertheless, her dressing sense is reflected in her outlook and appearance.

Saree is a staple cloth in India that has undergone several changes. It has also emerged as a sensual outfit and is even worn at Cannes by the Bollywood stars. There are different types of sarees. Contemporary party wear sarees are different from the modern ones. These are designed exclusively to give the traditional look. One of such saree is the pattu sarees.

Let us have a look on how to enhance the pattu sarees.

New age look

Most of the designer pattu sarees are inspired by indo-western look. With these types of sarees, you can wear noodle strap blouses, halter neck blouses, backless and heavily worked back patterned blouses. You must give special attention to neck designs of blouses. If you want to show off your even toned bare back, you can settle with lace backless chiffon material.

On the other hand, if you want to go for a classy and traditional look you can go with the choli design or look for alternatives with sleeves. You must also keep the color and tone of your skin in mind while making one. Not only should it compliment your skin color, but also your personality.

Most of these designs will include pads that will cut out the requirement of wearing bras. However, you must give your fit properly for having the most suitable fit. Once you have figured out your pattern and styles, you can yourself create a versatile variety of blouses, which you can wear from time to time.

You can play with the embellishments. From heavily embellished blouses to minimal work you should choose accordingly. Wear blouses according to your occasion.

Readymade or boutique designed blouses

You may wear your pattu saree with a readymade laced blouse or one designed in a boutique. Both of them can be mixed and matched. Buying readymade blouses from online stores will definitely save time.

On the other hand if you want a flawless fitting, you must go for a tailor made alternative. Obviously tailor made designs will take time but you cannot get the perfection from readymade. You can also design your blouse according to the pattern, designs, work and style of pattu sarees.

Tips to choose a style for pattu sarees

Style is all about being comfortable & confident. Unless you don’t know what suits your body type or skin, it is difficult to garner attention. If you are tall, you can opt for circular or square blouses but remember that you must avoid V-shaped and U-shaped blouse neck designs. For pattu sarees you can.

Tired of fruitless weight loss fads? Here are 5 unique and practical ways for success.

According to a recent study, weight loss is the most common New Year resolution. Sadly, more than 80% of people do not achieve success s- the main reason for this failure being blindly following unreasonable weight loss beliefs that are based on fallacious and ridiculous arguments.

For any result, a weight loss plan must last for at least 5 weeks. Anything that suggests a duration that is lesser to lose weight tiowill most probably not work.

A good diet alone is the key- absolutely not!

A good weight loss regimen is a combination of many factors. Good feeding habits alone may not guarantee good results.

The idea is to burn as many calories as you can while still cutting back on the daily intake. But reportedly, some people still claim that this impartial belief does not work for them. Want to know the reason why?

Before embarking on any weight loss workout plan, you must believe in it first. Rather than approaching it with a starting-from-square-one mentality, go for it with an “I am already incinerating some fat belief”.

Seeking help online

Although most certified physicians try to discredit online help, mostly from blogs, you can actually get a lot of help from these. However, even with these wells of info at hand, it is still advisable to consult a certified professional on a regular basis for face-to-face guidance. There are also a lot of things that you can learn from weight loss support groups.

Keeping that diary will be worthwhile

Recently, studies revealed that people who keep diaries during their weight loss regimens are more conscious and focused on weight loss, and therefore are more likely to achieve better levels of success than people who don’t.

Keeping yourself hydrated helps a lot

The best drink to help keep yourself hydrated is water. If you think that water is a little too repetitious, natural fruit smoothies can be used side by side with water. Scientifically proven, drinking lots of calorie-free liquids helps increase calorie incineration.

There are very many theories to back up this fact. For example, some people argue that the body uses a significant amount of calories to heat up the cold water after it is consumed. Others suggest that drinking water regularly helps reduce junk food cravings. Eating water saturated fruits wholly such as watermelons also help a lot.

Cutting down too much on the food intake triggers starvation mode

Naturally, the human body regulates its weight by ensuring that it stays at its predominant state. Cutting down heavily on calorie intake abruptly could cause the body to enter starvation mode, where the body also slows down its metabolic rate.

Instead of denying your body food for extremely long hours, eat a balanced diet during your normal feeding hours.   This way, you will ensure that the metabolic rate does not go below normal. Simple and realistic weight loss training accelerates it from normal to high for maximum fat incineration.

DIY ​tips to prep​ skin for smooth, bump-free hair removal this summer

 

FROM THE PROS:  Deanna Renda​, Founder of Naples Soap Company ​would love to share her simple DIY ​tips to prep​ skin for smooth, bump-free hair removal this summer.​

  1.   Cleanse – cleansing the skin can prevent infections and remove dirt from the treatment area. The easiest way to cleanse the skin is to have a warm shower or bath that not only cleanses, but opens up the pores.

    2.  Exfoliate​ -​ ​A gentle exfoliation to the skin improves circulation and promotes regeneration of the skin cells.  This can be achieved through loofahs, washcloths, scrubs, and brushes.  You can also use body scrubs with sea salt which is gentle on the skin

    3.   Soften Hair and Skin – heat and moisture is the most effective way to soften the hair and skin – use of a good, natural shaving cream can also be the key to a bump-free bikini area.

    4.  Minimize Friction – when moving an implement across your skin to remove hair, it is important to resist friction – this can be accomplished using soap or cream.  Soothing and creamy elements such as shea butter help the glide, so look for the right blend.

    What to do if you break out in pimples after removing hair?

    1.      Soak a cotton swab in alcohol-free witch hazel and preferably cold aloe vera and apply to the bumpy area.

    2.      After the witch hazel and aloe vera have evaporated, apply a few drops of pure, cold- pressed argan oil to the area. Use a gentle soap to eliminate further irritation.

Wine & Weight

Now that the weather is great, we tend to congregate by a body of water with a chilled bottle of wine but how do we enjoy those glasses of wine and stay on track with our diet?   Here are a few things you can do so that you can enjoy those nice evenings with your friends while sipping some wine.

  1. Know calories – Find out the calories in the wine(s) you drink. I know it’s not sexy but Moo Moo’s aren’t sexy either.  Check the internet for the calories of your favorite wines, I would go with your top 5, make note of it and when you go out ask for that wine so there are no surprises.
  2. Drink in moderation – Two (2) or more glasses of wine in one night is considered a heavy drinker for a woman.  For men, it’s three (3) or more glasses.  Women who drink about four drinks or more at one event (at least once a month) have larger waists than do moderate drinkers.  So, try not to hit your max drinking limit in one night.  Have that glass of wine, sip on it, fellowship and enjoy your friends.
  3. Choose Red –  Drink dark, dry red wine if you can.  Studies have shown that there is a compound in red wine that can block the growth of fat cells.  Red wine can increase your good cholesterol levels, improve digestion and metabolism. Go big red!

Proceed to the nearest body of water and grab that bottle of red wine, pour yourself a drink, sit back with your friends, watch the sunset and enjoy those beautiful evenings.

Benefits of Weight lifting for Women

Back in the 80’s Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons and Denise Austin ruled with their aerobic workouts and women were moving.  We started buying matching leg warmers and head bands and kicking and screaming like the rest of the women. It was a movement that got us moving for sure, however we are now in the 21st century and we need to build on that aerobic phase.  While we are doing all those aerobic exercises we are burning fat and muscle but let me tell you what you can do that will burn almost only fat (even around that belly) lifting weights.  Yes, ladies it time to pick up some dumbbells and lift.  Here are just a few benefits to lifting weights.

  1. You burn more calories – while you burn calories doing aerobics once you stop exercising you stop burning calories.  However, when you are done lifting weights your body will continue to burn calories.  Do you hear me?  You can be reading this blog and burning calories.  You can be watching TV and burning calories.  You can be eating and burning calories.  I think you get it.  If you lift weights your body will burn more calories.
  1. Stronger bones – Lifting weights will make your bones stronger more dense.  The more you lift you are decreasing your risk of osteoporosis.  You can also improve muscle mass and balance. You don’t want to be the lady in the commercial “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”.
  2. Mood Stabilizer – When you lift weights your body releases endorphins which I call natures happy pill.  Endorphins can enhance your mood, fight depression, reduce stress and anxiety.  Lifting weight can put you in a better mood and help you get your happy back.

Like in the 80’s the aerobic movement was big, let’s make lifting weights the big thing in the 21st century for women.  Go ahead run to the store and buy yourself a matching set of dumbbells.

Karite Shea Butter is natural, sustainably sourced and has philanthropic ties…it’s a winner

Karite Shea Butter Creme Mains hand cream is an awesome new skincare brand created by three sisters from Ghana who worked to develop a hand cream that was as close to the raw, unrefined shea butter they used growing up. The cream is simple yet concentrated, so a little goes a long way, and it’s incredibly soothing for any dry skin or cuticles. Made with a unique blend of palm and organic coconut oil, and shea butter, it is hypo-allergenic, anti-aging, and contains vitamins A and E to help restore skin nourishment and moisture. I love how rich the formula is while also feeling light and non-greasy once it is rubbed in- and it smells amazing.

With organic and sustainably sourced ingredients from Ghana, this product supports the livelihood of rural African women and their communities. Besides just finding a product I like that has good results, finding a product that is natural and sustainably sourced and that has philanthropic ties is a double win.
