Having healthy skin is a priority for many people. You are one of those people and you take great pride in the fact that you are able to maintain clear, clean, healthy skin using only organic skin care products. You are aware of the junk that is put into some products used to care for your skin and you don’t want to subject your body to the artificial, and sometimes dangerous, ingredients. You also care about the planet you live on and the impact that these unnecessary ingredients have on Mother Earth as well.
Let’s be honest here, the skin you care about most is your face, right? Yes, it is important to take care of every inch of your beautiful skin, but you worry most about your face. You don’t want wrinkles, you could do without blemishes, and age spots be gone! You can use an organic face cleanser daily that both cleans and gently exfoliates. It revives the pores of your skin and also has tiny little bacteria fighting soldiers built in to keep those pimples at bay. Okay, not actual soldiers, but they do the work of a whole tiny army.Your skin will be glowing gloriously when you are finished and you will feel refreshed.
After you have given your skin a refreshing wash and exfoliation, you need to replace the moisture taken away by cleansing. No matter your skin type you need to have the basics of moisturizing. Those basics include revitalizing your facial tissues and strengthening the collagen. Collagen is what gives your face lift and fullness and it can decrease with age. It gets tired and you need to give it the boost it needs. It is kind of like a pep club for your skin. Go team!
It also helps to have a moisturizer that contains all-natural antioxidant boosters. These antioxidants are absorbed into your skin and act to break down free-radicals. Free-radicals lead to premature aging, which you definitely want to avoid. There are other organic skin care products that can aid in healthy skin, but cleansing and moisturizing are the basics you want to start with.

We really don’t need to buy expensive lip exfoliator for we can use items that we can see on our pantry. I found this diagram online and it says that we need to mix:
1 part sugar
1 part honey
1 part olive oil
When the mix is ready we can already use it to exfoliate our lips when needed to get rid of the dead skin.

Training and Experience
Every professional can benefit from at least a little bit of schooling to have the smarts to succeed. Enroll in a college or another institute to receive a degree or certification in something fashion-related. Whichever road you take, be sure that you take fashion merchandising and design courses. This coursework will instruct you in the basics. It’s also to your advantage to undertake an apprenticeship. You may do this under a professional fashion stylist, a department store, or a retail shop. An apprenticeship is a 2-year experience that will give you the opportunity to do hands-on work. Plus, this is your chance to build your networking skills and connections. After paying your dues, you can take on clients of your own.
How to Succeed
Now you’re ready to launch your career as a fashion stylist. First, create a portfolio. During your time as an apprentice, you should have undergone several projects. You should have proof of your work, preferably shown through photographs. Compile the portfolio so it includes your best work and a description of what you’ve done. Don’t forget to include your résumé in there so potential clients can see why you’re qualified to handle a job. To get started, you might want to move to the hub of the industry. New York and Los Angeles are fashion capitals and exciting places to live. Network with existing connections to find work, and advertise your services to attract new clients. Over time, you can find people who will refer clients to you.

For bookworm, reading books is their passion and hobby. Those that are fond reading books can actually benefit from it for reading books can increase their knowledge and improve their vocabulary. Aside from that, some stories can uplift, encourages and improve anyone’s lives and can give valuable lessons in life.
Other stories written by authors can transport us to a different world, make us think in a different way, love deeply, terrify our soul, laugh out loud, leave us at the edge of our seat and even make us sleep less than usual because we want to finish the whole book because we are so engrossed in it.
Book lovers can have heaps of books collection in their homes and they call them precious possessions. Lately, some book hoarders have no more space where they can keep their paperbacks and adding a new one can mean clutter already. If you’re in college as well, books can be so expensive too and for those with little budgets, buying them can be hard for them financially.
Thankfully, there are book s of different types and college book rentals online. Just pay a fee depending on the number of days that you want and you can have the book that you need. No more clutter and you can even save money.
This also means that book aficionado will have another means where they can enjoy reading books at a lesser price.

How can one not like huge sale, great deals and discounts right? All consumers want to experience getting discounts from the items they purchase leaving them with some pennies still on hand. I guess most of us love to shop every time there is a big sale at the mall or at your fave online shop. GUILTY ME! I don’t see anything wrong about that but little we didn’t know, we, as consumers are being lured by marketing strategies of the malls so we can shop more that sometimes we end up buying things that we really don't need in the first place.
Hmmmmm…. I have read a great article few weeks ago and I learned that there is the “Exploding Discounts” strategy that most stores have been implementing. We often see signs from store like ‘only few pieces left or “sale only till today” and these are what they call psychological tricks. These signs can prompt us to shell out money and purchase the item right away because we don’t want to miss the opportunity that time. Wow.... what great strategy! I am most certainly can say that I have fallen prey to this kind of tactic. yay!
I reckon there are more marketing strategies that most stores do to increase their customers and eventually their sales. Not bad for they really need to step up for it is a business. It solely lies on the consumer if they want to buy or not anyway.
We also have the tendency to impulse buy ,which I am guilty of as well when we see SALE signs. I even had the experience of going to a midnight sale, scouring almost all the stores, checking the sale items and buying . In the end when I am already home, there are items that I really don't need or is not really worth to buy haha. Oh well.... those sale signs are really are a bait for consumers!

4. Paris Hilton's Lame Excuses
Image via Flickr by Eva Rinaldi
So what makes Paris Hilton's scandal in 2010 shocking isn't that she was taking drugs, or that she got caught. Instead, it was the ridiculous number of excuses she came up with one after another. Not only the number of excuses, but the excuses themselves were ridiculous. First, she said it wasn't her handbag. Then that it was her friend's stuff in it. She the stated, "What, is that cocaine? I thought it was gum!" Because cocaine and gum totally look the same. At least we got a good laugh out of this one.
3. Lindsay Lohan Goes Downhill

The child actress had a promising career. She was cute, she was a great actress, and she seemed to have it all. Until she got caught up in drugs. With Lindsay it almost seems like the controversy never stops. Every time she gets out of jail, she winds up back in trouble and right back in jail. It's clear that Lindsay has not found proper drug rehab treatment, because it's not long until she's in the papers again after each release. In April she talked to David Letterman about her upcoming rehab, which needed to start by May 2, and would last three months. Hopefully this time she'll stay on track.
2. Tulsia Allegedly Sells Class-A Drugs
Tulsia, the singer of N-Dubz, was recently arrested after an undercover reporter caught her on tape trying to sell drugs. She got arrested on June 4 along with a 35-year-old man, who is suspected of being the actual dealer. Tulsia was reported as saying that half of her phone book "sells it." On top of this, the singer showed the reporter text messages proving previous drug-related orders.
It's important to note that this is not the first time Tulsia has been involved with drugs. She admitted to a history with them in her autobiography. However, at that time she stated that she hasn't been around drugs in years.
1. Lance Armstrong Admits to Doping

Lance Armstrong has long been considered one of the most well-thought of and looked up to athletes of our time. He won the Tour de France seven times, and has overcome testicular cancer. However, he recently was accused of doping, and because of this has been banned from professional cycling for life. On top of this, he has had his titles stripped from him and has to pay back at least some of the $30 million he got in sponsorships from the government. At first he denied the doping, but after a lot of pressure, he admitted to it.
Celebrity scandals will continue to happen as long as there are celebrities. Drug scandals are just one of the many things that can happen with celebrities to help keep us interested. Who will be the next in and out of rehab?

It's also fun to wear shorts with cute tank tops and dresses and paired it with a nice colorful sandals that can readily match our outfits. You can never go wear with sandals as they can give comfort and can be fashionable as well. With your toes being exposed while wearing sandals, try to do some nail cleaning all the time as it can easily become dirty. A nice nail polish that can make your nails look pretty clean is also a sign that you care not just your fashion but also your hygiene.
I've been browsing the net all the time hoping to find some good finds and I found myself browsing through ALDO's online catalgoue this morning. While looking at the various styles and colors of their sandals, my eyes feasted on them.
Here are some perfect summer sandals from aldo that are so versatile. They can easily paired with your favorite maxi skirt or dress or a cute pair of shorts.

I had some ideas in my head on what dress that I want and it looks like the flowy and those skater or vintage style dresses will perfectly fit my physique. I also wanted to try those maxi dresses and eventhough some fashion experts say that short or petite women can look smaller in maxi dresses. It was not something that will discourage me for I have seen petite women like Eva Longoria and Vanessa Hudgens wear maxi dresses and they look stunning. I guess wearing wedge sandals or something that will make us look taller will do the trick.
These days, new styles on dresses are coming up to give lots of choices for women. Wearing a dress can make a woman feel “girly” as it can enhance women’s femininity. You can never go wrong with dress for you can wear them casually at home, while shopping, at the beach etc. or formal where you can look elegant and sophisticated. We just need to find the perfect style of dress or gown to suit every occasion we are going to. You don't also need go with the trends all the time for you can buy classic pieces that you can wear all the time.
Shopping online also makes me excited. The wide selection of women's dresses that will fit different kinds of occasion will truly make every woman want to wear dresses.
Here are my faves:
Saw this Gucci rectangle shape at Bloomingdales website and I can't get my eyes off it. I'll try to look for this style when I go back to the mall soon. Hope this will suit my face.
Upon arrival at the festival gates I would assaulted by a world of colours and sounds. Over the speakers boomed the collective noise of various artists performing in different tents. The floor was littered with paper cups and other rubbish. Bizarrely, some people were frantically collecting these cups. It was only later that I found out you could exchange these cups for beer. Police strolled through the crowds, as clowns did juggling tricks in one corner of the field and a few stray dogs rushed through the crowd (a breach in security apparently). After several attempts, we pitched our tent and waded through the mud to a bar. After queuing for an hour I finally bought an alcoholic drink, which I was much in need of. It was at this point that the heavens opened.
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed the music at the festival, and the general party atmosphere. I could even put up with the lack of sleep for a couple of days. The one thing that I simply could not abide, however, was being wet.
Dampness creeps through your skin, into your bones. Once you have a chill, it is incredibly difficult to feel warm again. During this particular festival, I was cold for the following three days. Plus, because I felt cold I kept having to dash to the ladies, not much fun when you have to use a portaloo.
So, for my festival antics this year, I decided to visit www.newlook.com to buy a printed parka. Usually I’m not a big fan of the parka jacket. However, these parkas are no ordinary coats. They’re really funky, lightweight and better yet will keep out the pesky rain if it does happen to pour. Which knowing my luck it will. They have a patterned design which fits in well with the season’s love of bright colours, statement pieces and floral designs.
After I bought a printed parka, I was pleased with how versatile it turned out to be. I could wear it with either skinny jeans and pumps, or wear it open with a summer dress for a hippie chick look. The exuberant nature of the jacket means it looks good teamed with statement jewellery and oversized accessories such as my festival-going tote bag. As it is waterproof, the parka should keep out the rain and keep me warm and dry for the two days I am planning to spend rocking out. Plus, I can roll it up if it does get too hot and carry it around with me in my bag.
So if you are looking for a handy, light jacket to take to festivals, look no further than a printed parka. Fun, stylish and most importantly waterproof, taking one of these when you’re out and about in the English countryside can only be a good idea!

Perfumes just like clothes and shoes can be a fashion statement on its own therefore, every woman must carefully pick the best scent for them.
Not all women have the same body chemistry, so not all scent will match everyone. You may find a certain scent so nice on your friend but when you use it, the scent may not be the same.
Various perfume stores offer freebies that you can take home. Use them for a while to know which one you like and then eventually buy the bottle. In that way, you'll not waste your money of perfume that you don;t like.
There are practically different scents to choose from: floral, fruity, fresh, oriental, citrus, spicy, woody etc.
