10 Pants Every Woman Should Own.

Even if you're not a self-proclaimed "pants" girl, having these 10 essential styles in your wardrobe will ensure that when you do skip the skirt, you'll be comfortable and look fabulous.

Must-Have Pants: Fit-You-to-a-T Dark Jeans
Must-Have Pants: Fit-You-to-a-T Dark Jeans
Dark jeans with a uniform wash are a no-brainer because you can wear them for day or evening and they go with everything in your closet. Instead of buying 50 random pairs, search for one that fits you in all the right places and buy a couple of those guys. Not the most exciting shopping trip, but trust us, you'll be glad you did.
Must-Have Pants: Nice Leggings
Must-Have Pants: Nice LeggingsThere are the leggings you wear when you get home from work, and then there are theleggings you can actually wear in public. If you're averse to being seen in such a body-conscious look, opt for legging jeans, which have a bit more structure. Pair them with tall boots and a knee-grazing coat and you'll be comfy without showing off every inch of your shape.

Must-Have Pants: Rugged Pants (Fit for a Lady)

Having a pair of cords, khakis or cargos in your wardrobe will prove useful when you want to go for more of a rustic vibe with your look. But that doesn't mean you can wear them only in the wilderness. Sometimes they're great for making sleek city blazers, boots and shades look a little more down-to-earth.

Must-Have Pants: Pants in a Bold or Bright Color

Choose the silhouette and material that suit your personal style and a color that complements your skin tone, and break these babies out when you really want to make a fashion statement. Wear them boldly with a loud top but remember: a white button-down and a pair of black pumpsare just fine too.

Must-Have Pants: Pants in a Bold or Bright Color
Must-Have Pants: Cocktail-Party Pants
Silk or crepe de chine pants that are cocktail-party-appropriate will also serve you well on evenings when it's too cold to wear a skirt, when you're in conservative company or when you just feel like mixing it up a bit. Feel free to play around with a silhouette to suit your dressy-top lineup and high-heel options.

Do we have to convince you that having a pair of loose, comfortable jeans in your wardrobe is a good idea? Two words for those gals still looking for this must-have: vintageLevi's.

Must-Have Pants: Office-Appropriate Trousers
Must-Have Pants: Office-Appropriate Trousers
Never underestimate the power of slim ankle-length pants and a pair of classic pumps. If you work in a traditional office, this is an especially important combo to have on hand. A neutral color and a not-too-tight fit are what keep this must-have looking professional and sophisticated.

Must-Have Pants: Printed or Patterned Pants

Why should your blouses and dresses have all the fun? Keep a pair of printed or patterned pants on hand to experiment with pattern mixing and give your solid-color tops a bit of instant jazzing up. We love luxe menswear-inspired pairs but more feminine options, like florals and jacquards, also work.

Must-Have Pants: Wide-Leg Pants
Must-Have Pants: Wide-Leg Pants
We don’t all have long stems, but those perfectly fitted wide-leg jeans certainly don't hurt if you're looking for a leg-lengthening style. Whether you opt for jeans or trousers is up to you; just make sure they fit like a glove up top and pool over your shoes down below. Break 'em out when you need to feel just a little bit more like a supermodel. Trust us, it works.

Must-Have Pants: Persona-Altering Pants
Must-Have Pants: Persona-Altering Pants
Every gal needs to make room in her wardrobe for fun, I-don't-know-why-I-love-them-I-just-do pieces. Leather skinnies, sequined leggings and lace pantsfall squarely into this category. It's OK to experiment with silhouette and fabric—just make sure your persona-altering pants get at least one thumbs-up from a nearby girlfriend or guy. You know, just to be sure.

Beyonce's Super Posh Delivery Room.

To say that Blue Ivy Carter was born with a silver spoon is an under statement . She arrived in a posh delivery room on the 7th of january. Beyonce and hubby Jay Z went over the  top in arranging a posh delivery room for their little girl to arrive in. Blue Ivy Carter was  certainly living large from day one.

The five star delivery room features four flat screen TVs, gray and cream sofas, brushed chrome accents mahogany walls and fancy kitchenette.
New Dad Jay Z apparently stretched out on the fluffy sofas to support his wife. The executive director of Lennox Hill Hospital where Beyonce and Jay Z had  Baby Blue said the Couple paid $800 a night for the five  star suite. Not bad if  am to say.

How Lap Band Surgery Can Change Your Life.

Ruth and I has been friends  for a very long time, i met her in nursery and we became friends ever since. Ruth's Mum passed away in 2010 and she  became really depressed .  I stood by her and tried to talk her out of her depression. But she devised her own means of consoling herself. She started  eating a lot and she gained a lot of weight. In less than 6 months she went  from a dress size 16 to a dress size 24 . I could not believe my eyes. Her life was a living hell, her boyfriend left her. She developed heart problems and a type 2 diabetes and was on daily insulin shots. She was ridiculed and laughed at because of her size, she lost her confidence and she could not just carry on living any more. I encouraged her to lose weight and get her life back on track.
She tried different types of weight loss regimes , dieting, working -out  and all, but all proved abortive. She either losses a little and gains more  back in a couple of weeks or she dose not lose at all. It was just a dead end zone again, she was getting worried that she might end up being fat for the rest of her life.   Just as all hope was about to be  dashed, i told her about lap band surgery  . Lap band surgery is a surgery to help you lose weight.  It is aimed at limiting how much you can eat because it reduces your stomach's capacity and get full easily and stay full for long with little or no food.  It was the end of the nightmare she was having. She had the surgery and came from a  dress size 24 to a dress size 14. The best part is , she kept the weight off.

 Ruth got her confidence back. She stopped having insulin shots because the diabetes was gone [such a relief] . Her heart problems stopped . From being ridiculed and laughed at , every body wanted to hang out with her, she looks so good that you can,t walk past her without turning to have another look. Her former boss offered her old job, which she turned  down and got something even better. All thanks to lap band surgery.

Factors To Consider When Buying A Home.

Buying a home is a huge decision and a huge task. It is a very time and cash consuming task. 
To make sure your time   and cash spent is worth it, there are some factors to consider when 
buying a home. Here are some of them-

LOCATION-  This is the most important factor to consider when looking for a home to buy. You have to check if the property is close to a water body [canal, river ,lake] , if it is close to a busy road? Depending on what location you like, you can chose your home based on the location. Some people avoid houses located close to a water body while some people go for homes  close to a water body. Is a case of different strokes for different folks. 

SIZE- When it comes to buying a home size matters. You will have to check the size of your family, is your family still growing?, is there a possibility it might increase  in some years to come?  With these questions on your mind you can easily decide on the size of the home that will be suitable for you.

AREA / PLACE- When you are done  with checking size and location another important factor to consider when buying a home is to check the area or place where the intended home.  Find out through your local authorities or  land surveyor if the area you intend to buy a home is easily flooded, if the home is situated on a downhill or uphill . Consider if its an area  /place that experience lots of rain or lots of sunshine. Also check if the area/place has any stigma attached to it like regularly  burgled area or very peaceful and quiet area.

COST /MORTGAGE - Before you embark on buying a  home, you must surely have a budget and have already decided your method of payment. Whether its a down  payment [almost impossible these days] or going to pay via mortgage. Check if you can afford it.

CONDITION OF THE BUILDING - Another important factor is to check the condition of the home you want to buy. Is the building in a good condition? Check the roofing to make sure its not leaking, the stairs are still intact and not fallen apart, the paintings are not peeling and the general cleanliness of the building.

There are so many factors to consider when buying a home, But these i think are the most important.

Twins Born Five Years Apart.

A mother has spoken of her joy after giving birth to a much longed-for "twin" to her five-year-old son.
Reuben and Floren Blake were conceived from the same batch of embryos but were born five years apart after some embryos were frozen during fertility treatment.
Parents Simon, 45, and Jody, 38, had been trying to start a family without success and began treatment in 2005. Five embryos were created and two implanted in Mrs Blake, which resulted in the birth of Reuben on December 9, 2006.
The remaining three embryos were frozen until the couple, from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, decided to try for another child last year.
Floren arrived on November 16, 2011 - two weeks before her due date - but five years after her brother.
Mr Blake said: "Just in kind of mundane settings where people take an interest in a newborn baby and with Reuben around as well, I find it very difficult to resist the temptation to say 'Oh and by the way they are twins'.
"It's almost just to see people's response. They are really amazed and surprised."
His wife, a programmes manager for the children's charity WellChild, said: "It does feel quite surreal. I think people are really, really surprised and it almost takes people a few minutes to get their heads around it.
"We obviously had nine months to get it straight and to think 'Gosh, we're having Reuben's twin', but it's incredibly special.
"When we had Floren, because I had her by Caesarean, we told the theatre team and they were all absolutely blown away and excited, ecstatic really."

Extreme Eyelashes - Are Eyelash Extensions The Answer?

ht eyelash extensions ll 111129 wblog Extreme Eyelashes: Are Eyelash Extensions the Answer?

Long luscious eyelashes are very popular these days, you see it everywhere you go. From glossy fashion magazines to the Red Carpet events to Reality TV.
 Supermodels like Twiggy and reality TV star Kim Kardashian have gone to extreme length  to enhance their eyelashes. Eyelashes are like universal sign of beauty. If mother nature did not bless you  with long lashes, now you can get help. My Daughter is one of those blessed with extremely long eyelashes, i envy her.  At just 3 years and half i get people asking me if her lashes are real.

More and more people are seeking ways to enhance their eyelashes. Today, cosmetics companies are trying  to bring out the best product to help eyelashes get very long and curly.

 In stores there are lots of products that condition and strengthens eyelashes , mascaras that promise to volumize and thicken lashes, and disposable lashes that can be glued on for elegant and bolder look. There is even a medicine called Latisse. Latisse is an eyelash medicine that you apply to the eyelash skin and it increases the growth phase of the eyelashes. Women who use it acquire fuller and longer lashes. It is the first and only  FDA- approved eyelash growth product.

But for women who want long- term eyelash extension without the pain of daily care, there is an alternative; eyelash extensions.

They are the lastest trends to hit Hollywood and day spas. The  thing great about it is that you can swim, sauna shower with them, and they look like you are fully made up. You don't need an eyeliner or even a mascara. The eyelash extensions are applied individually to each eyelash in an initial application, and need to be refreshed every two or three weeks for maintenance. An eyelash extension stylist , helps guide wearers to select the right look, lenght and thickness of their individual face.

The initial cost of a full set is about $200. Maintenance cost around $75 each. That's about $1500 for a year. The women who wear it says it is worth every penny. To me i think it's worth giving a try. What do you think?
