NightLift Bra by Dr. Randal Haworth, The Only Bra To Sleep In

NightLift Bra

 

NightLift BRA DESIGNED to PROTECT your BREASTS while you SLEEP.

Here I will be talking about breasts, so before I even get in to this post, I want to remind you of the importance of doing regular breast self-exams, mammography’s and regular visits with your ob/gyn. Read about breast health at the Mayo Clinic HERE.

Now, let’s talk about sleeping in a bra. Is sleeping in a bra bad for your boobs? There are lots of yes and no answers on this. The internet is chock-full of them. I will tell you from my experience, sleeping in a bra has kept my boobs “looking” great! For this article I am going to stick with aesthetics and not get into the medical aspect of this. Let’s save that for another time.

I was as flat as a board when I reached breast maturity age. My breast buds never bloomed. I was body shamed in both elementary and high school. One of the most memorable comments I recall is “You would fit under a door but your nose would get stuck”.  “Flat as a pancake” was a common phrase I would hear.

In my late twenties I got a boob job, not because of anyone else or because of lack of confidence but just because, I wanted boobs. I was not going for a stealth boob job but just an average look for my body type. I got my boobs. I love my boobs. I still have them, many, many years later. It sometimes amazes me to think about the age of my implants and how great they still look.  My surgeon was Dr. Brent Mollekon  in Beverly Hills.

A soon as I finished up with the Dr. Instructions, and my breasts settled, I began the practice of sleeping in sports bras, well fitting comfortable ones.  After time, I added a second sports bra, yes I sometimes slept in two sports bras.  I have no personal medical evidence or documentation on this but I truly feel this has helped my breasts stay “up” and perky and look great after all these years.

Not too long ago I heard about The NightLift Bra by Dr. Randal Haworth , expert surgeon in the field of plastic surgery. This bra is amazing! It’s a sleeping bra that has replaced my “sleeping” in sports bras.

It is important to say, this is not only for women with breast implants but for women with natural breasts too. It’s sleep support lingerie to help keep your cleavage area smooth, your breasts from sagging and drooping (gravity especially pulls on the breast tissues) and keep you comfortable while sleeping. It keeps the breasts perfectly immobile but in the most comfortable way.

These is much you will want to know about The NightLift Bra and how Dr. Haworth designed it. You have got to take some time to check out the website HERE.  You can find out about the long term affects of gravity on the breasts, B.U.S.T.® patented Bilateral Uplift Support Technology, learn more about Dr. Haworth, get caught up on the NIGHTLIFT blog, learn about your bra size and size conversions and SHOP!

I have the NightLift BoudNoir Bra, $98.00 but I must get another or a few more. Dr. Haworth explains that like all bras, the same NightLift bra shouldn’t be worn night after night because the fabric needs to rest and breathe. He recommends alternating at least 3 different NightLift Bras. According to my knowledge of bras in general, this is the best rule of thumb.

It’s certainly an investment but I do plan to add the Lace Lift and the Nudatitude Bras to my lingerie drawers soon. The Nightie NightLift Baby Doll  & The Camisole (both $128) are  on my wish list.

Thank you Dr. Randal Haworth. I have been waiting for NightLift and I am so happy these designs are available!

Brilliant Bedding Ideas to Decorate Your Bed

Your bedroom needs special attention while doing up the home because your bedroom’s bedding décor and design would set your mood. Your choice of bedding and fabrics would be determining the level of comfort and coziness in your bedroom. Here are some effective bedroom décor tips for a stunning bedroom décor.

Classic & Simple

You simply can never go wrong with a simple and nice dazzling white comforter and complementary shams. Irrespective of the bedroom’s color scheme, a nice white comforter could be regarded as the perfect complement. You must stick to soothing bedding designs and fabrics. You must opt for a crisp cotton duvet or no-frills milky white linen. You could be slightly more adventurous and choose a nice and texture option such as a jacquard coverlet or quilt. Match the footer throw to complement the season. If your bed has white linen as a base it would be making your bedding design really versatile.

Beautiful Bedding Patterns

Make your bedding décor more dynamic by choosing a specific pattern or design as the focal point. There could be numerous possibilities. A nice honeycomb medallion motif would look fabulous in a somewhat bright color. For gray and earthly brown hues mixed with yellows or oranges, you may choose soft cotton textiles. You could consider using impressionist patterns in vibrant hues togenerate aspirited ambiance. Duvets that have botanical silhouette prints actually look clean and fresh. You may consider blending the color schemes to create a welcoming ambiance.

Dress Up Your Bed in Layers

Implement a bedding design that uses different fabrics and layers. You may consider covering a stitched thin quilt and use a thicker duvet on top of it. Keep it folded back a bit for revealing the layers prominently. Then start layering pillows like a housekeeping expert to incorporate a complete, luxurious, and cozy look. This is certainly a wonderful way of interspersing busier patterns with each other and also with solid or one color textiles. Of course, you must also give importance to the base layer or the mattress. It is the foundation to all bedding ideas. Only a good mattress could promise every night to be the best night of your life. You must buy a nice ergonomically supported mattress for ultimate relaxation and comfort.

You would have access to genuine reviews of nice and cozy mattresses by browsing throughMemory Foam Talk reviews DreamCloud. You must invest in a good mattress as then you could enjoy relaxed and totally undisturbed sleep. Once you are all set with a nice mattress, you must start layering it up for creating a plush look.

Use Single Tone Bedding Design

Use just a single tone for your bedding design. You could keep things relaxing and minimal by using a deep and intense color for creating a more masculine appearance. You could alternatively, use a lighter hue for generating a more spacious and airier feel.  Mix and match the pillow shams and the duvet with nice and complementary single-tone cotton sheet sets. You are free to swap out the colors as per the season. You may consider adding a few stunning and decorative throw pillows that would attract all the attention because they come in different striking colors. You must know how to mix different shapes and sizes.  You need to be imaginative with all your color additions.

Conclusion

It is important to try coordinating your bedding with your bedroom furniture to create a seamless or a unified look. Bold and vibrantly colored patterns would be complementing furniture made from dark woods. Modern bedding designs would be including furniture made from lighter woods or metals. Remember solid single-toned colors and subtle designs on flatter textiles complement modern designs well. If you follow the above-discussed guidelines, your bedding design would surely be welcoming and noticeable.

How to Dress for a Midweek Night Out

When you think of a night out on the town at the weekend, typically you’ve got a separate section of your wardrobe that is meant for those instances. It may be that you go a bit glam, perhaps a bit more stylish and trendy, but there is a very clear look that you are usually working to achieve. When it comes to enjoying a night out during the middle of the week, what to wear can be more difficult.

Not to worry as we’ve put together a number of great ideas and tips that will help you to throw together the perfect midweek appropriate outfit for a night out.

Take the Activity into Consideration

Before you even start to think about what may be fashionable and trendy at the moment, it’s important to take the activity or event into consideration. What you plan to do should be the main driving factor behind what you wear.

Let’s take, for example, one of the hottest new activities from Breakout Games, the Cincinnati Escape Room is just one of many locations. This event has you locked in a room filled with clues that you need to find and put together in order to solve the mystery and escape the room before time runs out. Clearly, you’ll want something comfortable as you’ll be rushing around a room searching high and low, so heels and a dress isn’t exactly the ideal outfit.

A Fitted Blazer

One piece that can complete an outfit and add instant fashion to it is a fitted blazer. You can be wearing your favorite comfy jeans, and a simple white tee, then throw a blazer on and suddenly you’ll look put together. Blazers are able to elevate outfits and also help to give you structure and shape. If you want to pick up a blazer that is versatile and will work with everything in your wardrobe, opt for a solid neutral shade such as navy, grey, brown, or standard black.

Dark Wash Denim

Jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe but not every pair fits with the activity you are doing. For a night out on the town in the middle of the week, jeans work perfectly, but again, you can elevate your look by going with a dark wash. You’ll still have the comfort and versatility of jeans, but the dark wash helps to make them look a bit more dressy and polished.

A Romantic and Fluttery Top

The final tip is to pick up a romantic fluttery style top. This is perfect for date night and going out with friends. It can be paired with leather pants for an edge, jeans for a casual look, or dress pants if you’re going somewhere fancy.

Add a Little Polish to Your Wardrobe

When it comes to the perfect outfit for the weeknights. it’s all about taking those pieces you already have, that are comfortable and flattering, and then looking for ways to add a little polish to them.

Maya Smith -The DOUX Haircare Line for Natural Curls is blowing up on-line

Maya Smith, Black-Female Creative Director, Stylist, Inventor, Innovator, Natural Hair Advocate and Mom of 5, takes her indie hair care line, The Doux®  to mass market with brilliant 90’s hip-hop inspired packaging that cannot be ignored. After two decades researching and mastering natural curls; Maya delivers a brand that shows natural curly hair who’s boss. Check out her story and this awesome new brand getting blogger buzz and blowing up on-line

THE AWESOME STORY BEHIND THE DOUX:

There’s something NEW for girls with natural curls of all types and textures. The Doux® (pronounced The Do) is a “new school” modern hair care system with an “old school edge.” With packaging that is bold and bright and product titles inspired by 90’s hip hop, The Doux is a bold new line that took two decades to perfect for those seeking a way to smoothing curly, kinky, and wavy hair into both, curly or straight styles.

Created by Maya Smith, a 25-year celebrity stylist and International Curl Master, The Doux was first launched in Europe in 2011 in response to her passion for helping people master the hair they were born with. STRAIGHT, NATURAL, CURLY, or RELAXED, according to The Doux, if you grew it, it’s ALL GOOD. “I was living in Germany at the time, had my own salon there and my specialty was helping clients to transition to a relaxer-free lifestyle. I’m obsessed with people maximizing the potential of the hair they were born with. Mastering curls is my passion and purpose,” explains Smith.

The people felt her passion through her products. The Doux blew up overseas so much so that it caught the attention of media in the USA. “Once we started getting press in the states the demand for The Doux was incredible. I had to return to the states and see this vision through,” Maya Smith explains. In 2014, Maya opened The DOUX Salon™ in Macon Georgia’s historic Downtown district and started selling her professional grade products at her salons and on-line.

Fast-forward three years and a lot of work and dedication, The Doux arrived in Target stores in the winter of 2017 into 2018; no easy feat for an indie brand. “We are so excited to bring The Doux to the masses. It’s 20 years in the making. We listened to 20 years of feedback from actual clients from Minneapolis to Morocco. We listened to what people wanted, a salon grade, high quality product that delivered on its promises. Helping people to manage and maintain their natural hair and celebrate their own bold, unique style is what the last 25 years of my professional life has been about,” Maya Smith shares.

The Doux also redesigned its packaging, with the intention to disrupt the category. Maya did all the of the package design herself bold with bright colors, which is the opposite of the more subdued look you see on the shelves currently. “I’m a fan of 90’s rap so I wanted to incorporate lyrics and titles in the packaging,” adds Smith. With titles such as Bonita Afro Balm, Mousse Def, Sucka Free, Fresh Rinse, and The Light, The Doux will most definitely catch the eyes of Millennials and Gen X’ers alike.

The Doux is now available at select Target stores and online at TheDoux.com

Seven Tips for Improving Your Smile

 

 

You may only get one set of adult teeth, but the good news is that today, there’s no need to simply accept what you’re given. With dental technologies and treatments constantly improving and evolving, it’s easier than ever to achieve the smile of your dreams with the help of your dentist. Your smile is the thing that most people notice about you, and a smile that’s stained, damaged, crooked, or even including some gaps can cause embarrassment and massively impact your self-confidence. If you’re smiling less because you don’t like what you see in the mirror and you don’t want others to see your teeth, then it may be time to make a change. Here are some of the top methods of improving your smile today.

#1. Better Dental Care:

First and foremost, improving your dental care and hygiene routine is essential to improving your smile, and can often create great results on its own. For example, if you have slight staining, a good whitening toothpaste may be able to help you brighten your smile whilst simply taking better care of your teeth will help you avoid decay, cavities, and other oral problems. There are several things that you can do to improve your oral hygiene routine, for example, investing in an electric toothbrush or flossing more regularly.

#2. Tooth Whitening:

More often than not, people are embarrassed about their smile because their teeth are stained or discolored. This is not surprising; our teeth go through a lot every day. Simply drinking coffee or tea regularly, or consuming dark foods, can cause your teeth to lose their bright, white shine. Thankfully, teeth whitening is an easily accessible treatment today – in some cases, simply cleaning and polishing the teeth will provide the desired result, or special tooth bleaching and whitening treatments will add the extra level of sparkle you want. Speak to your dentist about the tooth whitening options available to you.

#3. Consider Dental Implants:

Even if you practice good dental hygiene as a regular habit, there are many reasons why you could be missing a tooth. Perhaps you’ve been unable to reverse gum disease, have lost or cracked your tooth in an accident, or have had a tooth removed. In some cases, teeth that are already damaged or broken may need to be removed to improve the overall health of your mouth. If you don’t like your smile due to gaps, dental implants could be the best option for you. Instead of dentures and bridges, which aren’t always the most comfortable and sometimes don’t stay put, a dental implant acts just like your natural tooth, with a titanium implant that fuses to your jaw and acts like a brand-new root. Check out Arthur Glosman DDS for more information on dental implants.

#4. Orthodontic Treatments:

If crooked or overcrowded teeth are the main reason you are unhappy with your smile, you might want to consider orthodontic treatments, such as braces, to correct this issue. Today, braces are no longer just ugly ‘train track’ options for teenagers – as more and more adults take steps to get straighter teeth, there are options suitable for everybody’s needs. For example, if you only have slight crookedness, you may be able to get clear, removable braces, which will gently move your teeth. Usually, you’ll be able to wear them overnight and whenever you’re at home, so there’s no need to worry about wearing braces in public. Or, if a fixed brace is a better option for your needs, speak to your orthodontist about the possibility of clear fixed braces or braces that are fitted out of sight behind the teeth. Braces can also be used to fix an overbite using elastics that train the jaw into a new position.

#5. Crowns:

If your biggest smile issues come from teeth that are discolored, a crown could be the right treatment option for you. Crowns are used to make your tooth stronger, along with improving its outward appearance. If you have a tooth that is weak or broken, your dentist may recommend a crown for protection or restoration. Crowns can also be used to attach dental bridges, which are artificial teeth joined to adjacent teeth or implants.

#6. Veneers:

Dental veneers can be an excellent option for anybody who wishes to completely change the appearance of their teeth. Veneers are slim shells of strong, tooth-colored porcelain, which cover the entire front side of your tooth to improve its appearance. In most cases, veneers will only be used once it is impossible to improve the appearance of the teeth any other way without risking further damage, harm, or pain to the patient. When getting veneers, they will be based on your natural teeth and smile using a model of your mouth. Bear in mind that unlike bonding, it’s essential to remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth to accommodate the veneers and keep them in place.

#7. Regular Dental Visits:

Of course, damage to the health and condition of your teeth can also have a massive impact on your smile, so it’s important to ensure that you’re going to see your dentist for regular check-ups. It’s easy to visit your dentist for a quick check-up at least twice a year and it can have some great results for your smile. When visiting your dentist, they will be able to spot any early signs of problems such as tooth decay that could ruin your smile in the future and recommend early treatment to ensure that your pearly whites are preserved. In addition, don’t forget that regular dental check-ups will also help you prevent serious diseases such as oral cancer, as your dentist is trained to spot the symptoms of diseases like this. Book a deep cleaning session with your check-up to keep your teeth in even better condition.

Today, achieving and maintaining a bright, white smile is easier than ever thanks to the wide range of dental and orthodontic treatments and services available.
