You have received the best news! The date is set! Your little girl is not so little anymore, she is getting married! And now the preparations for the most beautiful day may begin... There is always too much to do when organizing a wedding and after all of the responsibilities are distributed among the members of the bride and groom' s family, you are left with taking care of your own appearance for the event.

You've heard the saying before, as soft as a baby's bottom. Well, it came to be because babies really have a soft skin, having in mind it was well protected from damage all the time while inside the womb.
However, as soon as they come to the world, you can't expect that soft skin to always stay that soft unless you take proper care of it, starting from giving them a massage right after baths, the timing when the skin can hold up moisture, along with using adequate eco-friendly products, to prevent sunburns, and diaper rashes.
There's also the aspect of clothing, and accessories, so it's important to ditch synthetics and opt for organic bamboo: from baby bamboo wrap, and towels, to onesies, hats, gloves, anything and everything bamboo.
Living the lifestyles of today, constantly busy, constantly stressed, it’s more than important to find a way to relax, and have a nice workout at that. That’s exactly what yoga provides, and that’s why it’s still as popular as ever, after all the millennia.

You've probably heard the saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, but it seems like most people don't really apply it to their dental health, even though there's an entire branch of dentistry dedicated to prevention. That being said, preventive dentistry helps you avoid gum disease, cavities, enamel water and everything in between. There are various different forms of preventive dentistry, and all of them will benefit your dental health immensely.
Without a doubt, a smile can make a lasting impression. Either a positive, or a negative one, depending on the state of your teeth. The bad news is that not everyone is blessed with a dazzling Hollywood smile. But the good news is that unlike a few decades ago, modern dentistry is so advanced that there's no issue that can't be fixed.
The most common problem today are teeth imperfections in the form of discolouration, cracks and chips which not only have a bad effect on your appearance, but can also lead to more complicated dental issues and affect your overall health. Dental veneers are one of the best ways to not only cover up these imperfections but also prevent further damage. Furthermore, a teeth veneer can be applied to perfect the shape of a noticeably smaller tooth, or one that's misaligned. In some cases when teeth are only slightly misaligned, veneers can also be used as a better alternative to braces.
The National Stoke Foundation has predicted that in 2017 there will be more than 55 000 new and recurrent strokes and as much as 470 000 people living with the effects of stroke. In fact, stroke is the leading cause of disability in Australia. After a stroke has left a person disabled, what were once simple tasks now demand a lot of time and great effort. However, that doesn’t mean that the person cannot lead a normal life anymore.
We can’t deny it’s a thing of pride we’re living in societies where people are finally paying more attention to the development of healthy day by day habits, thanks to getting more informed about the necessity of staying physically active. Combine that with the proper amount of sleep per day, and a healthy well-balanced diet, and presto change-o, you’re in the perfect shape!
It all seems ideal, but for one important detail: as long as you don’t control the sugar intake, you can’t exactly expect the ideal outcome and be able to cut down on the health risks altogether. According to the World Health Organisation, the recommended daily dose of sugar is only 25g (about six teaspoons to be exact), which most Australians are far from considering the daily intake per Australian is staggering 60g (14 teaspoons) on average.
The scarier part of the statistics is that of teenagers, whose intake (particularly that of males) exceeds the 60g for about 30g. It’s not always easy to give up the sugar addiction, or cut it down to the allowed dosage, especially not for people with a sweet tooth (don’t we all have it), but if you really want to get the great starting point, avoid soft drinks, processed cakes and sweets, and, most importantly, replace the refined white stuff with sugar substitutes natural in substance.
The life of modern day people is full of activities as soon as the morning alarm clock goes off. A day full of errands and work related tasks is a guarantee, however no matter how much we’re out and about, we can’t deny we’re all prone to sedentary lifestyles either at the workplace or at home. This is due to the dependency we have of electronics, whether in the form of TV, laptop or tablet. It’s only natural that eventually not staying active enough and rather sitting it out, resulting in getting overweight, would lead to certain health issues, back pain primarily.
There is much art in enhancing the beauty that mother nature has already given you.

I could accept a bad hairstyle day or a pair of jeans that the last time they were trendy was the time when Christina Aguilera wore everything but clothes, but I could never in a million years accept wearing an ugly bag! I mean, going out with the wrong bag for the outfit? I'd feel committing a fashion crime and so incomplete!
All the bags I have in my closet are there for a reason: some of them are simple, big and roomy which makes them perfect for my work outfit as in them I can keep my snack, a bottle of water, my wallet, keys and a few cosmetic essentials. Others are tiny and stylish, so I wear them usually when I go out. However, whether I choose a tote, a flap or a shopper bag, I always make sure it's functional, affordable and most importantly - that it reflects my personal style.
