Exactly what it says on the carton. Ingest nothing but liquefied fruits, roots and vegetables for a set period – anything from 24 hours up to an entire week
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The concept has been buoyed by numerous high-profile Hollywood endorsements as well as the widespread assumption that anything green is good for you. As for what you’re meant to get out of it? Juice-fast advocates evangelise about the method’s ability to reverse digestive damage and flush ‘toxins’ from the body. There are a
few drops of truth to those claims: a UCLA study observed an increase in participants’ general wellbeing after a three-day ‘cleanse’, along with a rise in healthy gut bacteria. Meanwhile, kale juice has been associated with a rise in HDL cholesterol (the good kind), and both citrus fruits and carrot have been linked to a lower risk of developing heart disease.
But – and it’s a big but – Harvard Medical School experts have critiqued the lack of scientific evidence for most of juicing’s benefits, especially the vague claims that
it can ‘detoxify’ the body (that’s what your liver and kidneys do). Sure, kale and other healthy foods will support your body’s natural healing processes, but the science suggests that they work just as well when sautéed – maybe along with those morning eggs – as sunk from a plastic bottle. Plus, by stripping the fibre out of fresh produce, you concentrate the sugar. ‘Even if you’ve got plenty of vitamins and minerals, all of that sugar means you’re raising your insulin levels very high,’ says Miller. ‘Most juices don’t include any protein, either, so you’re not getting the nutrients needed to support muscle recovery.’
Lacklustre workouts and cartwheeling energy levels? You’re alright, thanks. Just as, with the best will in the world, you’re no Spartan warrior queen, neither are you a yogini going deeper into your practice on a Balinese beach.
If you must give it a go, fast for just one or two days, ideally when you don’t have much on, and supplement your juice with a blended bean broth for satiating fibre and a touch of protein.
You’re salivating too, right? so will you be giving it a try?
I say this a lot, but there’s no greater joy than making things. Having an idea journey from your head into reality gives you ownership of what you do and of yourself. It’s particularly top of mind here as I navigate the world of online stores, words cant express how excited and eager i am to finally doing what i truly love,(more on that on a later post)
I want to celebrate women for what they create and what they represent. We’re not falling for large Instagram followings in the hope that a little of that… shine?…will rub off on the brand. Besides, if you don’t have a point of view in the first place, then why bother? A point of view and a hunger to create unite the women.l also wanna celebrate the LGTBI community ,my community ,its 2020 we need to stand strong together, and stop any SHIT-PERIOD.
The Key to Confidence and a Window to Your Personality You can find many definitions of what it means to “be fashionable.
When I talk about a personal style, I don’t mean that your clothes need to reflect what the latest issue of Vogue shows, What I mean is that your clothing should reflect you and your personality. Here’s why:
✓ How you look on the outside reflects how you feel on the inside. Are you full of confidence or more the shy type, raring to go or in need of a nap, ready to meet any challenge or looking for any excuse to dive under your desk?
✓ How you look affects your attitude, your decisions, and often what plans you choose to make (or, more importantly, not make). You never know what the day is going to bring, so you should be prepared for all situations (within reason). If you leave the house in the morning looking so-so, you’re less inclined to accept that spontaneous invitation for drinks or dinner after work. You don’t always have to be dressed up in cocktail attire, but if you look great and are confident in your outfit (even if it isn’t as dressy as you’d like), you’ll be more inclined to accept the invitation.
✓ The way you look and feel about yourself influences your confidence. One of the sexiest things a woman can own is her confidence. You want to look fabulous at all times because, let’s face it, you should always look like the fabulous person you are! Confidence is your best accessory When you walk into a place thinking, “I look smashing!”others will think the same thing. Trust me.

…I think that every country should have their own rules and regulations, but for a thriving society and for all of us to stand together, we have to understand that we are all human and that we are more alike that we are not. So, we should be open to loving each other, accepting each other. It doesn’t matter where we come from.
During the final word round, each delegate was asked the same question: “What is the most important lesson you’ve learned and how will you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?” Green replied
Throughout my life, I’ve been exposed to both those who are privileged and underprivileged and what I learned is we are all human. We all want to be loved, we all want to belong, and we all want to be seen so we should treat each other that way
Tamaryn is a strong woman who knows exactly what she wants and stands up for what she believes in
Strong women aren’t simply born. We are forged through the challenges of life. With each challenge we grow mentally & emotionally. We move forward with our heads held high & a strength that cannot be denied. WE ARE WARRIORS. Never forget your strength ladies. Happy Women’s day.
Although getting dressed each day doesn’t exactly look how it used to—and it’ll still be a little bit before we return to that place—we will get back there and get to be excited again about putting on an outfit and showing it off to the world. It’s important that we stay excited about fashion, especially if it’s something that we normally love to express ourselves through.
So it doesn’t matter if you’re just anticipating the moment life returns to normal, getting tired of wearing the same set of sweats everyday, or getting dressed in cute outfits for yourself while social distancing; a stylist’s expert advice can always be helpful.
I can not even begin to count the amount of times I’ve approached my closet—which is overfilling with clothes—and said to myself, “I literally have NOTHING to wear!” I’ve always loved fashion, following trends, and most of all, shopping … but I still get stuck on wearing the same outfit combo over and over and have moments of feeling uninspired by my wardrobe from time to time. So let’s sort out our closet, and improve our style here are some tips I’ve found.
Take inventory of what you have and what you like before purchasing something new Before jumping on a new trend and buying something new just because you’re seeing a lot of it, ask yourself if it meshes well with your personal style and if it would really be a good addition to your wardrobe. “I love to look at the trends each season and see how they speak to me and my personal style. Is it the color combos that I like? New silhouettes? A fresh pair of shoes in a new style that I haven’t seen before? I take inventory of what I have and see what I can add to the mix, then I start looking based on my budget.
Adding in trends or luxury items doesn’t have to break the bank A sure-fire way to keep your style on point is by taking trends from the runways themselves—but that can get very expensive, very fast. “If you are going to invest in a designer item, “I always suggest purchasing something for the long haul that becomes a basic piece in your wardrobe, versus a trendy item.” Try this new idea inviting friends over for a clothing swap to get new pieces without spending money, everyone wins
Start with a foundation of basics your closet does not need to be filled to the brim with clothes to have great style. having a few awesome basics is the true foundation for a great wardrobe. “Every woman needs to own a great suit that can be worn as separates—if you have black already, try a bold color,” Other essentials? “An all-purpose tote handbag, denim that can be worn on weekends and for a night out, a classic black pump ,and of course, a great cocktail dress … and no, it does not have to be black.”
Some of my faves:
High-waisted jeans and a fitted bodysuit with a statement boot or mules for spring
Strappy sandals and a loose summer dress
A great suit with power pumps and a bold accessory, like statement earrings or a cool necklace
A statement blouse—a blouson sleeve with denim and a sandal for spring, or with pumps for evenings out or a more dressed-up everyday look
Donate, sell, and give away pieces often One of the hardest things to do when it comes to your wardrobe (I especially struggle with this), is to know when it’s time to get rid of some pieces. I am always thinking, “but what if I suddenly need to wear this?!” about those random dresses at the back of my closet. “The back of the closet is the hardest place to find inspo. Usually these items are impulse purchases or one-time occasion options that we don’t know where we will wear next. Get into the back of your closet and try everything on—if you don’t love it, donate it, sell it, or give it to a friend,” There could be a plus side to that closet clean out, though. “Sell what you can and donate the rest. Use the extra funds to find pieces that make you feel confident and beautiful.
However, if you do love something but don’t wear it often, try styling it in a different way “If you do love it, then try to pair it with something you already owned. Is it a pair of patterned pants? Try pattern mixing with a printed top. If it’s a summery dress, try pairing it with a sweater and boots for a fall look. A statement jacket looks great with a white T-shirt and denim, or try mixing up a more formal item with some of your casual pieces,“It’s trying those familiar pieces in new ways that makes them feel fresh again.”
Wearing something that fits properly and that you are confident in is key I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that a lot of people (me included) neglect to tailor their clothes, for one reason or another. However, Erin stressed that a proper fit is key in looking your best. “Tailoring is the #1 service I offer my clients. If something doesn’t fit properly, it ruins the look. Investing in tailoring will give life to your clothes that it doesn’t have: a custom fit!” she said. It is so important to feel confident in what you’re wearing. “A stylist’s job is to make sure their clients feel comfortable and present a confident image—whether it’s a red carpet event or press interview,“Make sure when you are purchasing clothing and putting outfits together that they make you feel like ‘you’ and confident to be who you are. If you are trying to be someone else or wearing something you aren’t comfortable in, it shows.”
Always be switching up your accessories, silhouettes, and colors a simple tip for freshening up wardrobe basics that you probably already have in your closet: “Accessories, accessories, accessories. For this season, I am loving layered necklaces over a white T-shirt.“Trying a new style of denim instead of a classic skinny can change an entire look—I am loving the high-waisted wide leg,” And with leather jackets and blazers, try adding a colored bag or shoe to make the look more fresh.”
Stay on the lookout for inspiration and keep it fun
Lastly, the importance of continuing to look for inspiration, even if you’re feeling tired of your clothes or burned out on your style. “Check out Pinterest, Instagram, and magazine editorials and sshapesstyle see if you can find fresh new ways to style items you already own,“Chances are, inspiration is out there, you just have to look for it. I am always trying to find ways to make looks feel fresh and constantly looking for personal inspiration and inspiration for my clients.”
remember to always have fun with fashion. “Fashion is a creative, functional expression for everyday life. Don’t be afraid to try something new or mix things up. We all have to get dressed each day, so we might as well make it as fun as possible,”
