Which Type of Handbag Suits Your Body Type?
Over the past year, handbags have quickly become the most popular accessory on the market. There are thousands of styles and designs to choose from, which makes it difficult to find the perfect handbag. Many women are unsure of which types of handbags work best with the shape of their bodies and end up choosing styles which make them look large or out of proportion. In order to help you choose the right type of purse for your body type we have compiled a list of body types as well as which kind of handbag is best suited for each type.
Choose the category which best reflects your body type:
Tall and Thin
If you are long and lean, you will be able to get away with almost any form of handbag. Clutches, oversized handbags and shoulder bags will suit you fantastically, but the size of the bag needs to be considered. Oversized, large bags are going to look best on you, whereas smaller ones are going to make you look even taller than you already are. If you want to purchase a smaller handbag, make sure it fits snugly under your shoulders.
Short and Plump
Shorter girls need to pay very careful attention to the types of handbags they choose. Smaller bags tend to look best since larger ones will overpower you and make you look even shorter. Shorter purses (especially those which fit tightly against your body) will create height and make you look taller than you really are.
If you're lucky enough to have an hourglass figure you will want to accentuate your waistline. In order to do this, you will need to find a bag which hits just above the waist. This style and length is going to be most flattering. Medium sized bags work best to enhance your already gorgeous body type.
If you're plus size you will definitely want to stay away from small bags, which tend to make you look bigger than you are. Bags with short straps should also be avoided. Try a style which is larger and slightly wider than normal sizes since they will make you appear smaller.
The type of handbag you choose will not only depend on your body type, but also on the outfit you're wearing and what you are doing. Choose your handbags according to how you feel that day and what you think looks best on you. One handbag is never enough, so make sure you have a number to choose from. You wouldn't wear the same pair of shoes everyday, so why carry the same handbag?

Stylin? Safety Glasses Are Hot to Look At
What do you think of when you hear the words "safety glasses"? Are you picturing the big clear plastic one size fits all glasses that sort of fit over your eyes? I have a pair of really cheap safety glasses that I only wear when I know no one will see me. They don't fit well and are very uncomfortable. I guess they serve their purpose for keeping debris out of my eyes; but there has to be a more stylish way to go. We're busy and very active people. We have lots of interests and we're involved in all kinds of sports and events. We like to be doing things and we want to look good doing it. There are all kinds of specialty equipment on the market for every interest so why not safety eyewear? According to a Vision Council of America (VCA) survey, the most important reasons for purchasing specialty types of eyewear include:

My Shopping List: Shoes, Dress, and a Hairdresser
Change is a funny thing. When seasons change, so do people and their way of thinking. For some of us it can be scary and for others a welcomed challenge. A few of us will throw out clothes we have not worn in years. Others will throw away old shoes, handbags, jewelry, hats and belts only to refill their closets with a shopping trip. Shopping is the ultimate change for a shopaholic. However, there are some of us who will shop for the ultimate change? a haircut. Whether it is a two-inch cut or a 10-inch cut, you better be sure to shop for a person who knows exactly what he/she is doing. I never thought that one must also shop for a hairstylist in the same way that we shop for the perfect dress or pair of shoes. After I saw my neighbor's hair, I have changed my thought process.

Sunglasses Options are Plentiful
Protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful rays is very important if you are spending any time outdoors. Even days that are hazy or dull require protection for our eyes. Here are a few considerations.
Bra and Panties ? Reassess Your Intimates Before Fall
There is a great chance that you forgot to do some of the most important cleaning tasks of the spring season. Your bra and panty drawer, housing some of your most essential lingerie, is a mess. Although taking the time in the middle of the nice summer days to clean and organize your intimates does not sound appealing, it is crucial to management of the unmentionables.
Fads and Fashions
"Following the crowd" is something that we have all been guilty of. But new investors are more likely to "follow the crowd" and fall in love with the latest fad. This is a great risk, and a dangerous one. Newer investors tend to be particularly attracted to fads and fashions in investing. Remember the internet bubble back in the 90s? So many people lost money buying in at the end of the cycle. Of course, those who bought in early made great profits, but these investors often bought in on fundamentals, not hype.

What to Wear: Summer Dressing in a Business Environment
Choosing appropriate clothing for the business environment can be challenging at the best of times. It becomes more difficult when temperatures rise and we feel being fully covered is uncomfortable and downright hot. It becomes even more of a challenge when we leave home in sweltering heat and then move into an air conditioned work environment. How do we dress? What should we wear?
Chandelier Earrings: Cascading Elegance
Earrings come in many forms, and the complexity of the style reflects the sophistication of the wearer's taste. One of the most elegant and complex designs is the chandelier cut. Chandelier earrings - as they are simply called - are a more complicated variant of the drop earrings, which are usually made of just one stone or material. Chandelier earrings may be a mix of two or more stones, or an elaborate web of stones and metal. They are longer than drop earrings and often reach far down the neck area without touching the shoulders.

The Perfect Swimsuit For You
Shopping for and buying a swimsuit or bikini can be one of the worst, most depressing experiences for women. Contrary to what fashion magazines would suggest, not all women wear size four clothing and can easily slip into a sexy, thong bikini. Most women, in fact, regardless of the size they wear, feel a little self-conscious about their bodies. These women are hardly excited to begin parading their bodies around in skimpy swimsuits that are unforgiving to even small amounts of fat. For these women, each successive visit to the dressing room in the endless search for the perfect, wonderfully fitted swimsuit, is a further reminder of how far their bodies are from model perfect. What many of these women do not know, however, is that the perfect swimsuit for them does exist, and it may not even be very difficult to find. There are women who feel wonderfully sexy and attractive in swimsuits. These women understand their bodies and know what styles will complement and flatter those bodies. All women, regardless of size or figure, can be properly flattered and displayed in the right swimsuit. As you enter the summer season, keep these figure guidelines in mind while shopping for the perfect swimsuit for you. Plus Size: Let us begin this guide to swimsuit shopping with the women who often feel most rejected by swimsuit manufacturers. While all women feel somewhat self-conscious in a skin-baring swimsuit, women who wear plus sizes often feel that they will never find a good swimsuit fit for their unique bodies. However, these women often have the sexiest curves to show off in a swimsuit. In the 1950s, curves were in; in the current era, curves may be making a reentry into the vogue of swimsuit fashion. To accentuate and flatter curves in a plus size body, try pairing a light colored, waist-defining tankini top with more subdued bikini bottoms. Choosing a swimsuit with a high percentage of Lycra or spandex and a high-cut leg will actually shave 10 pounds off of your appearance. To slim and shape the stomach, make sure tankini tops and bottoms meet. This will prevent any unsightly stomach bulges. Pear Shapes: Women with pear shapes often have an extremely challenging experience when buying a swimsuit. The combination of a relatively small upper body with large hips and thighs can look somewhat unflattering in the wrong swimsuit. Fortunately, plenty of flattering swimsuit options do exist for women with pear shapes. The number one secret to finding a sexy swimsuit for any type of body is to flatter and display appealing characteristics while drawing eyes away from less desirable characteristics. For women with pear shapes, the best swimsuit or bikini entails a flashy top with plenty of eye-grabbing detail combined with more subdued bottoms. Try a one-piece swimsuit or bikini with a halter-top to widen the shoulders. Pair this top with dark, high-spandex bottoms with high- cut legs. High-cut legs tend to slim the hips and thighs. Short or Long Torso: Women with either short or long torsos often have a difficult time shopping for swimsuits, as well. Torso length is one of the most important factors to consider when finding the right fit in a swimsuit, and swimsuit manufacturers seem to (rather unfortunately) concentrate their efforts largely upon women with "normal" length torsos. To either lengthen or shorten the appearance of the torso in a swimming suit, the key is getting the right cut on the legs. For women with short torsos, try finding a bikini with low-rise bottoms that sit just on the hips. The low-rise bottoms will show as much midsection skin as possible. Legs that are cut too high will shorten the torso even more and give the appearance of stockiness. Conversely, women with long torsos should try a tankini with bottoms that sit a little higher on the hips. The tankini top will break up a long torso while the higher bottoms will lengthen the legs. Large Busts: Women with large busts often have difficulty finding a swimsuit that offers enough support in the top. It seems that the swimsuits that do offer the appropriate amount of support often look too matronly. Thankfully, most swimsuit manufacturers now offer bra-style support in their swimsuits, an absolute must for minimizing and flattering large breasts. The key to finding an attractive swimsuit for a big bust is to look for a one-piece swimsuit or bikini top with a hidden underwire. An underwire will lift the bust, giving it the support it needs. Also, look for a suit with a straight across cut at the top and wide-set straps. To avoid looking matronly, find a bikini or swimsuit in a pretty, young, pastel color. Small Busts: For women with small busts, the key to looking attractive in a swimsuit can also be found in bra-style support. Hidden underwires will lift and shape the busts. To add curves to the bust, try a bikini top with triangle-shaped cups or a tie-front. Triangle cups will add shape and curve to small breasts while a tie-front will lift and shape a small bust even more. In general, women with small busts should avoid bandeau-style bikini tops. Bandeau tops tend to minimize and flatten the breasts. Boy Shapes: If you fear you have no shape to accentuate in a swimsuit at all, you may have a boy shape. To gain more Marilyn Monroe style curviness, try a one-piece swimsuit with a low, plunging neckline. The top of the suit should gather to add shape and curve to the bust and shoulders. To emphasize curves in the hips, try a high-cut leg that sits just above the hipbone. This type of cut will make the legs seem longer and curvier. However, if you would like to embrace your boy shape, try pairing triangle-shaped bikini cups with short boy shorts. Boy shorts are incredibly popular but look attractive on only a small percentage of women; women with boy shapes make up the majority of this small percentage. While swimsuit shopping may seem too depressing and panic-inducing to even attempt, you should not sacrifice your summer fun for fear of the dreaded experience. Just remember that every woman, regardless of size and shape, has a perfect swimsuit laying in wait for her. All she need do is know where and what to look for.

Why Weight Train During Pregnancy?
There was once a time that a pregnant woman was thought of as "fragile". Any form of exercise was strictly prohibited by doctors and feared by concerned fathers. We've now come to realize that a pregnant woman is capable of doing nearly everything that every other woman is capable of doing (and even most men).
