Build Up Your Wardrobe with 5 Key Staples

A woman can have dozens of outfits that she never wears because they don’t fit her lifestyle. On the other hand, you only need a few key staples available that you can mix and match and be a complete fashion plate. High-quality clothing can last a decade so you can keep up with all the trends easily. Here are five pieces of clothing you should keep in your wardrobe so that you can be dressed to kill for every occasion.

1. Leggings

Okay, so everyone has an opinion on leggings, but they are really the perfect staple. Instead of putting on pantyhose you can wear leggings and add color to a solid dress or tunic. If you gain or lose a little weight, your leggings should still fit you like a glove so you don’t have to have them hemmed or tailored like other types of clothes. Leggings also get plenty of wear if you wash them on the gentle cycle. You can find leggings that are bedazzled or silk screened with fun images of adorable cats. They’re youthful but never over the top when they are paired with longer shirts or conservative dresses.

2. A Three-Piece Suit

Whether you are going in for an interview or already have the job, a three-piece suit always says that you’re ready to do business. Wear the bottom portion of your three-piece suit with various long and short-sleeve shirts for variety, or wear it all together to present a totally professional look. A single three-piece suit can be worn five days a week to the office, and each day you can look like you are wearing an original outfit. If you are just starting a new career and you don’t have time to go shopping for a professional wardrobe, having a couple of three-piece suits in your closet will ensure that you are dressed sharply for work each day.

3. The Casual T-shirt

Not only are casual t-shirts great for working out, lounging, gardening, and wearing out on dates, they accentuate your best features. Keep a few different casual t-shirts on hand so that you can pair them with your favorite active bottoms, your most daring of miniskirts, and your baggiest sweatpants. When you need to get dressed quickly you can pull on a casual t-shirt and be out of the door in minutes. Wear a comfortable t-shirt with a blazer and you can go into the office with confidence or put an outfit with lots of different accessories on with your favorite t-shirt for an elegantly simple look.

4. Comfortable Sweatshirts

Wear them as outer or put one on while your home and stretch out on your couch. Sweatshirts can come with hoods and pockets so you don’t need a purse or jacket when you head outdoors. Since they are roomy, you can also wear a few extra layers underneath your favorite sweatshirts so that your body temperature stays comfortable all day long. You can wear a vintage sweatshirt with the name of your favorite band, or pick a sweatshirt with no logos or intricate details and blend more into the crowd. Sweatshirts are great for wearing when you want to jog early in the morning, bring along your phone and headphones, and just zone out during your workout.

5. Everyday Jeans

If you don’t have at least one pair of jeans that feel like a second skin you are really missing out. Everyday jeans make your figure look great and feel snug around all the right places. Not all jeans in the women’s clothing section at your local store are going to have the right fit so you will probably have to try out lots of different pairs before finding the ones that you are comfortable with wearing all the time. Wearing a great pair of jeans when you’re going to be doing a lot of walking will help you to keep a comfortable pace rather than needing to stop and constantly adjust your clothing. Get the perfect everyday jeans in all color choices so that you have an enviable wardrobe.

Keep a pair of jeans that make you look and feel like a million bucks and match them with a casual t-shirt that you are sure will turn heads. Your comfortable sweatshirts will keep you warm when it gets chilly at home and while you’re on the go. Leggings are a classic staple that should be in every woman’s closet, and the three-piece suit should always be pressed and ready for wear. With these wardrobe essentials on hand, you will never have to worry about being dressed right for any event.

Preservative Free Supplements for Glam Pets

Like humans, pets can benefit from natural, preservative-free supplements that can help them maintain their health and their appearance. For the glam cats and dogs out there who are part of breed competition shows or who just simply like to strut their stuff at the park, the following supplements might be able to help them look and feel their best.

Canna-Pet

When your dog doesn’t feel good, it’s going to show on her face and through her body language. Just like you, she will not have the energy to go out and have some fun. So, if you want your dog to always feel good and look glam, consider supplementing her diet with Canna-Pet. This is a product made from organic plants and it can be used safely alongside other supplements and medications. It provides cannabinoid nutrition that can help with everything from pain and allergies to inflammation, digestive issues, mobility issues, and even anxiety.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Another great supplement to add to your glam pet’s diet is a healthy fats product that provides a good dose of omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats play an integral role in your pet’s overall health, as they help to support the skin, the heart, and the brain, as well as the joints. If your pet suffers from allergies or skin conditions, consider adding omega-3 fatty acids to her diet so that her skin can heal naturally.

Coconut Oil

Yet another natural, preservative-free supplement that you can try on your pet is coconut oil. In addition to adding it to her meals for healing from the inside out, you can also apply it to her skin, especially if her skin tends to be dry and itchy or if she deals with a lot of allergic reactions. Just be sure to add only a small amount to your pet’s food, such as ¼ teaspoon for every 10 pounds that your pet weighs, as coconut oil contains a lot of fat (avoid it altogether if your pet is already overweight). And if your dog has pancreatitis, she should not be getting any coconut oil.

Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes

Finally, you can consider adding probiotics and digestive enzymes to your pet’s food at mealtime, especially as she gets older, in order to support her digestion. With a strong and healthy digestive tract, her body will be able to absorb all of the vital nutrients in the foods that she eats, and that will help her stay fabulous both inside and out. There are products on the pet market that contain both of these supplements in one convenient package, or you can purchase them separately. Just be sure to mix them into your pet’s food well, and follow the product’s label instructions carefully and closely.  

Before adding any supplements to your pet’s diet, it is best to consult with your veterinarian first. He or she will be able to give you personalized advice about your pet so that you can make the right decisions for her long-term health and well-being.

4 Epic Romantic Cruise Ideas to Make Your Vacation Together Memorable

You’ve made arrangements for a romantic cruise vacation to escape from it all with your beloved – now what? There are a number of ways of customizing your cruise in a way that makes sure you two are the focal point of your whole trip.

If finding a way of isolating yourselves onboard becomes problematic because of numerous other passengers, here are four ideas to make it feel as though you’re the only people on the cruise vacation.

Enjoy a couple’s massage at the spa

When you’re unwinding with a romantic partner that you deeply love, relaxation can take on a sensual dimension. Take advantage of the spa offerings on your cruise ship and enjoy a couple’s massage, private hot tubs or saunas, and perhaps VIP villas where you can spend an entire day leisurely lounging.

Arrange for a day on a private island

If the romance is unmistakable when you feel like you have a small corner of an island all to yourselves, how much more exclusive would it feel if you and your beloved spend a good part of the day alone on an island? When you want to avoid the beaches crowded with families, you might want to consider boarding a cruise ship that has its own private island.

Splurge on a special celebration

You might want to celebrate a special milestone in your relationship or you may simply want to have a little spontaneous fun together. Either way, arranging for a special event on a cruise boat will certainly make it memorable.

Most cruise services, including thamesdinnercruise.co.uk, have special romance offers including roses, chocolate-covered strawberries and sparkling wine delivered to your room. Bubbles, flowers and cakes definitely inject flair into the special occasion, so consider making them a part of your quiet evening together on the romantic cruise.

Or to make an even bolder statement, arrange for a ceremony for getting married or renewing your vows during the cruise. Do some research and shop for cruises that offer special proposal packages if you’re planning on getting engaged while on vacation. One great idea would be finding a private location that features a photographer and event coordinator.

Have a course-by-course dinner on your balcony

You can arrange for a nice candlelit dinner with a two-top in the cruise ship’s main dining room if you and your significant other are okay with dining with the masses. However, the thought of trying to enjoy each other’s company while in a crowd is not always appealing.

Rather than dine out with the rest of the passengers, treat yourself and your romantic partner to a special multicourse gourmet dinner without having to step foot outside your cabin. A majority of luxury cruise lines can provide you and your spouse with a complete course anywhere on the ship, including your balcony, at no extra charge.

With careful planning, a bit of research and a lot of love, you can organize for the most unforgettable romantic vacation with your and the love of your life.

It’s a Glam Thing’s JULY’S GIVEAWAY FEATURING THERAGROW AWARDED TO ONE LUCKY WINNER

BEAUTY NEWS!

WOMEN WITH HAIR LOSS FIND HAIR REGROWTH IN A HELMET

www.theragrow.com 

Over half of women experience hair loss by the age of 50. There are many women out there who experimented with hair color, straightening and other styling methods that involve chemicals that weaken hair. Also stress is also a culprit for hair loss plus hormonal changes. To fight the battle of thinning hair women typically turn to topical products which don’t deliver the results they hope for. Also, most women are not candidates for hair transplants.

For the many women who suffer with hair loss and the self-consciousness it leads to; finally, there is a discreet FDA cleared at-home product designed strictly for women called Theragrow™ $495 http://theragrow.com/ 

Theragrow is a helmet that harnesses the power of laser light to minimize hair loss and promote hair growth. It delivers the same precise wavelength and dosage of energy proven to rejuvenate hair follicles and effectively regrow hair.

HOW IT WORKS:

Click the link to see video:http://theragrow.com/

Theragrow allows the necessary wavelength between 670 and 686 nanometers to penetrate deep enough to reach the base of the hair follicles and stimulate growth; a depth of 3 to 5 millimeters. No other light source, including devices using LED light, can achieve this.

By treating the base of hair follicles, Theragrow’s proprietary cold laser technology ensures the mitochondria, the energy generator of hair cells, is reactivated. The mitochondria then produce cell energy that is absorbed by hair follicles stimulating new hair growth.

The lightweight Theragrow helmet houses 40 individual lasers. It provides maximum scalp coverage to treat all areas affected by androgenetic alopecia, the condition suffered by most women reporting hair loss.

After the first treatment, the process of halting hair loss and rejuvenating your hair follicles to grow healthier, stronger, thicker hair begins. Laser light therapy targets the stem cells at the base of hair follicles. It’s working deep beneath the surface even before you see visible results.

The inventor of Theragrow, Tamin Hamid Ph.D, who is a former NASA scientist and Biomedical Engineer, is excited to provide a viable, cost- effective solution specifically for women who haven’t seen adequate results from topical treatments. She explains, “women cannot take the only prescription drug available because it is only FDA cleared for men so this is a solution for women that will deliver results. More than 90% of women in a recent user group reported positive results from treatments delivering the precise weekly amount of laser light energy you get with Theragrow.” 

Low-level laser light technology has been proven to repair, improve and grow hair in women. Within the first three months Theragrow leads to reduced hair loss and increased thickness and density. Within six months there’s a fuller appearance and feel to hair with more body, there’s also visible new hair growth at the top and crown of the head. At that nine month mark hair regrowth is significant.

Theragrow is used for 20 minutes, 4 times per week and you can read, watch TV, work on the computer while wearing it. It’s quiet and cordless FDA cleared over the counter medical device to promote hair growth in women. It is not to be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or have been diagnosed with cancer. 

Retail Price: $495.00

What Your Business May Be Lacking

Your business may be lacking luster and you aren’t sure what to do about it. It’s common to experience lulls, but it’s important you know how to bounce back. Give yourself time to sort through your current state of affairs and figure out what’s going on.

It’s usually during the most unexpected time that you’ll hit a wall. This may come as a surprise to you, and perhaps you don’t have a plan in place to make it better. Whatever you do, don’t panic. Regroup and start brainstorming ways to get back on track. See what your business may be lacking.

Creativity

You need to have a mix of logic and creativity in your organization. You can’t function without some sort of creativity and spunk. You need people who are going to bring new ideas to the table and who aren’t afraid to go against the crowd. Implement activities that focus solely on building creativity and learning how to practice different types of thinking patterns. Get your team involved and let everyone know they’re free to come up with innovative ideas that although they may not work, are worth discussing because they could lead to other changes.

Passion

Find your passion for your job and work again. Rediscover why you’re in business and share that information with others. Get excited about your products or services and celebrate team successes along the way. Make improvements to the business and team structures so people are excited to come to work each day. You need to have a hunger to win and excel. Pass this drive down to your teams and get them pumped up about the work they do.

A Plan

You can’t keep functioning on a whim. There needs to be a documented business plan and goals in place. Everyone at the company should know the vision and how you’re getting there. Writing down a strategy is imperative. Otherwise, it’ll feel like you’re chasing your tail and never achieving. There needs to be a plan for beating the competition and innovating your company. Nothing will get done without a documented plan of attack. Everyone needs to be on the same page in order to advance forward.

Content

You need to have content your customers will embrace. This includes launching a robust website with an attractive design and appropriate information. Also, consider a newsletter, blog and magazine. Get creative and test out different magazine covers that promote your brand. Design it yourself for free, using a theme and images of your choosing. Include compelling information on the inside that your readers won’t be able to put down. Spend time writing content that draws them in to your business and demonstrates your expertise in your field. Publish on a regular basis and show your audience you care about them by sharing your knowledge and company updates.

Conclusion

It’s normal to experience bumps in the road when you’re running a business. Ride it out by figuring out exactly what’s holding you back. This is what your business may be lacking.

how-couples-can-cope-with-professional-stress

Stress is no joke. In the short-term, stress improves productivity and gets us out of a danger, but exposure to long-term stress soon leads to mental and physical health problems. Unfortunately, modern life is very stressful. We work long hours and family often takes a back seat to a demanding boss.

It is common for people climbing the career ladder to become overwhelmed with stress and eventually burn out. If your partner is suffering from work-related stress, he or she is probably not easy to live with. They may be emotionally withdrawn or bad tempered. You may even be at your wit’s end. The good news is that there are a few things you can do to ease their stress, so read on for some tips.

Listen

The most important thing you can do is listen to your partner. Let them bend your ear at the end of a bad day. You might be tired, but spend ten minutes listening to your partner offload their worries and concerns. You don’t need to give them advice; you just need to be a good listener. Often, that is all they need.

Empathize

There is a big difference between sympathy and empathy. Most people don’t seek sympathy when their life is not in a good place. Rather, they want you to walk a mile in their shoes. Be as empathetic as you possibly can be. Let your partner know you care and that you want to help make things better. You might not be able to make the stress go away, but you can at least try.

Help them to Relax

Do your best to help your partner relax when they are not at work. Let them sleep in at the weekend and don’t burden them with extra chores. If the kids are quarreling, take them out of the way so your partner can relax.

Many men and women use alcohol to self-medicate when they are under stress, so keep a close eye on your partner to make sure this isn’t happening. Instead, offer to give them a relaxing massage or run them a hot bath and add some aromatherapy oils to promote relaxation.

Have Fun

Fun is a great antidote to stress. Organize some fun activities to take your partner’s mind of their stressful job. If you can afford it, book a surprise vacation to the https://www.whitebuffaloclub.com. A week’s vacation in Wyoming could be just the ticket. Alternatively, book a beach vacation. Some people need to spend their time doing absolutely nothing for a few days in order to recharge their batteries.

Encourage Them to Make Changes

If temporary cures don’t work, you need to encourage your partner to make some more radical changes to their life. Suggest they look for a new job or try a different career. No job is worth making yourself ill for. Life is too short.

Keep a close eye on a stressed-out partner. Sometimes, stress can lead to anxiety and depression, and if this happens, your partner will need more than a sunshine vacation to recuperate.
