Beauty Secrets – The Ultimate Guide

We've all experienced a fashion emergency or wished we could improve out beauty regimen with easy, inexpensive adjustments. So here are some quick and easy ways to stave off that unsightly pimple, keep under eye bags at bay and have gorgeous skin all year long.

Pimple Rx

Feel a pimple coming on and can not walk around with chalky white toothpaste on your face? Try dabbing some of your perfume on the blemish a few times throughout the day. The alcohol in the perfume will help dry it out (plus you'll smell great!).

Sleep better

Have trouble falling asleep but you've exhausted your sleep aid prescription? Why not try to catch some Z's the natural way? Lavender is known to promote alpha waves, which are necessary for restful sleep. Try soaking in a bath before bed with Lavender salts or Lavender oil.

Here's another idea: take a Lavender face pillow and pop it in the microwave on low for a couple of minutes, then place inside your pillowcase. Put your arms over your head and clasp hands, then stretch your clasped arms as far to the right as possible (make sure you remain comfortable) and then back over your body to the left. Repeat about five times. Breathe in deeply as you do these stretches, which will get the oxygen flowing.

Perfect that Pout

We can only dream of having lips like Angelina-well naturally anyway. Most of us have at least thought about using a lip plumper, hoping to look in the mirror and see gloriously luscious lips smiling back at us. The key is getting lips ready for lip plumper, so it can penetrate and do its job.
Here's a little trick that will not cost you a dime. Apply a small amount of Vaseline on a soft bristle tooth brush that's been moistioned with warm water. Ever so gently brush lips for about 2 minutes-you might want to do this while watching TV, two minutes can feel like forever. Remove the Vaseline with moistened towelette or soft washcloth and then blot dry. Apply moisturizer, sunscreen and lip plumper. Then go show off your beautifully plumped lips.

ps If you do not want to splurge on a store-bought lip plumper, dab a tiny-and we mean tiny-amount of Cayenne pepper on your lips. It'll sting a little, but what's a little pain in the name of looking gorgeous?

Baby Soft Skin

Wonder why some women appear to have plump, hydrated skin even in the middle of winter while yours is so dry it hurts to smile? Chances are those other ladies are doing a few things differently-or else they are genetically perfect and we do not like them anyway.

When it comes to keeping your skin hydrated it only makes sense to drink lots of water. Water keeps the cells in your body quenched, so your skin looks luminous and your appetite is curbed (great skin and a trim figure-it's too for the price of one!). You've heard it before …

Who made the first black dress? It may not be easy to answer the question clearly. In general, the fashion industry owe the glorious invention to a famous French designer. In 1926, the designer found the magical charm of this dress. In the past, black skirts can only appear at the funeral. The designer produced the first batch of black dresses when the most prestigious fashion designer went to her side and said: ‘Mrs., who do you want to mourn for?’ She answered,’For you, sir.’ Of course she knew what she was saying, and it is obvious that she was confident of her design.

Fashion Designs for Women in Wheelchairs

Women in wheelchairs often find that their physical condition can severely limit their choices in clothing in addition to their mobility. Clothing is manufactured which is designed to be comfortable and easy to use for people with mobility problems, but there has been a tendency to design with a “one size fits all” approach, making clothing which cater to any kind of disability without taking style into account. Now designers are emerging who cater to women who want up-to-date fashion designed to be stylish and comfortable in a wheelchair.

Clothing designed for use in wheelchairs is generally made to accommodate any disability. This can be very important for people who suffer a lack of motor ability in their hands, as many wheelchair clothing manufacturers include Velcro seams with feaux buttons, making it possible to dress themselves independently. If you are able to use buttons, however, you may prefer a button-down shirt, but still want it to be designed to look good while you’re in a sitting position. Clothing is usually designed to look its best when a person is standing or walking.

Clothing design for people in wheelchairs has been slower to evolve than wheelchair design. You can get a variety of wheelchairs to match any disability with any cause, but most wheelchair-appropriate clothing design is designed to be accessible to anyone. Clothing for men with mobility problems is usually very classical, including polo shirts, feaux button-down shirts, classic pants, jeans, or khakis with elasticized waistbands, and sport jackets cut a little shorter to look good in a sitting position.

This isn’t as much of a problem because men’s clothing design is more uniform to begin with. Women’s clothing is much more complicated and varied. Women’s wheelchair clothing, in addition to sometimes not having the option of excluding Velcro seams or other accommodations that, depending on your situation, you may not need, are often also very classical or even targeted towards senior citizens. Senior citizens make up a large part of the market for mobility products, and while there are older people who want to use up-to-date clothing, the stereotype is that they may have an antiquated fashion sense.

Designers are finally catching up with wheelchair fashion. There still aren’t many sources of fashion clothing for people in wheelchairs but the market is expanding. These designers tend to focus on simply making clothing which looks good and is comfortable while sitting down, which may make them a tempting option for people who work in an office as well. Jackets are designed not to bunch up when a person is sitting down with the jacket buttoned, as are shirts and blouses. Pants are designed to accommodate your stomach in a sitting position, using elastic or loose-fitting waistbands, as are skirts, which are cut at a length which is tasteful and won’t get caught in your spokes.

With new wheelchair fashion designers, women in wheelchairs no longer have to feel that they can’t use up-to-date, fashionable clothing which looks and feels good.…

The only constant factor in the world of fashion is change. As we all know fashion keeps changing practically every minute and people strive to keep up with the new trends all the time.

These days with every change in the trends one will see new versions of existing standard fashion.

So beware of back aches from constant high heels and heavy handbags, or stretched ear lobes due to fashionable heavy earrings. And last but not least wear, decorate, or utilize what suits you best.…

The History of Affliction

Back in the early days of MMA, a small clothing company in Signal Hill, California, rose up to become a big name in the hardcore fashion genre. By sponsoring big names in UFC, like Georges St. Pierre, Randy Couture, and Quinton Jackson, as well as heavy hitters from other hardcore arenas, Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley and Zab Judah, Affliction was able to show that to emulate your MMA or heavy weight boxing idols, you had to wear the same clothes they were wearing. Affliction became the leader in the “Wear your attitude” fashion field.

Started up in 2005 by Tom Atencio, Todd Beard, Eric Foss, and Clifton Chason, the brand was conceived by fighters for fighters, which helped lead to the success of Affliction, and some of the offshoot companies that would develop through the business model Affliction had created. Sinful, a line of Affliction clothing for women is characterized by the religious expressions, like angels or angel wings, or other symbolic imagery – doves, burning hearts, roses, and skulls are also commonly found on Sinful outfits. Xtreme Couture, a division of Affliction developed by Randy Couture and his wife Kim Couture in 2007, carries UFC clothing, as well as fitness supplements, and MMA training facilities.

It wouldn’t be MMA without drama, and the Affliction brand has had its share. In late 2008, co-owner Todd Beard opted to resign after receiving a restraining order from Randy Couture’s wife. The restraining order became necessary after Beard carried out a “campaign of terror” against the Couture’s because they asked him to provide a thorough accounting of the profits. On the Canadian front, night clubs in Vancouver and Victoria, BC, as well as notorious night club Cowboy’s in Calgary, decided to bar patrons wearing Affliction or Ed Hardy clothing from entering the premises, claiming that the clothing was a gang related uniform. Affliction responded by claiming no affiliation with gangs, and that the clothing is simply an “upscale men’s boutique brand.”

After a few years of sponsoring UFC fighters, the Affliction team had a difference of opinions over business practices with the UFC management. Affliction decided to become MMA promoters, and formed the company Affliction Entertainment, which cost them a lucrative spot in the UFC ring. After two successful co-promoted events in 2008 and 2009, Affliction got hit with a curve ball with less than 60 hours before their next event. One of the fighters in the main event was rumored to have positively tested for steroids, and would not be permitted to fight in the event. In what was a probably humbling experience, the Affliction team decided to take up the UFC’s previous offer of ad space on the Octagon and the UFC fighters, providing they ceased all fight promoting operations.

UFC president Dana White said in a statement “We are excited about the return of Affliction to the UFC and look forward to seeing our fighters once again walk into the octagon wearing the Affliction brands. Affliction is an …
