By on May 9, 2014 in Business | 0 comments

107035395_c9c67f1d2b_oIt can be agreed upon most that women’s boutiques have a tremendous amount of staying power. Let’s face it many women love to shop. Women are always searching for the latest fashion trends and beauty secrets. It is estimated that women spend over $750 billion dollars each year on clothing and accessories. The amount that women spend on gym memberships are at an all-time high despite the current state of the economy. Our society places a considerable amount of value on beauty and fashion and there is no doubt that the earnings related to these industries are lucrative. One of the most important questions that aspiring boutique owners should ask themselves is, “what do customers want?” (more…)

Lack of Female CEO’s a Loss For Everyone

By on May 9, 2014 in Business | 0 comments

3100604853_f44dfaed43_zOnly twenty six of America’s fortune 500 companies have female CEOs. That translates to a paltry 3%, a dismal statistic when it comes to gender equality. It would be absurd to argue that sexism is a thing of the past in view of such a glaringly obvious discrepancy in the promotion of women to top corporate posts. Efforts are being made by many organizations to correct such inequality, and those efforts seem to have helped women enjoy more equal treatment in corporate positions up to the C suite, but they have clearly not gone far enough when it comes to the top job, or any job above the C suite. There are a number of factors that contribute to this problem. Unless it is solved, corporations that do not embrace equality will continue to lose out in the war for talent. (more…)

How To Stay Motivated Toward Your Fitness Goals

By on Mar 27, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

When it comes to fitness, one of the things I hate to see is when people give up because they become frustrated with their lack of progress. It’s understandable as working out requires a lot of hard work. If that work is not paying dividends, then why keep going at it so hard? What’s unfortunate is that lack of results is usually due to a knowledge gap about proper workouts and nutrition. No matter how motivated you are toward your fitness goals, it get really hard to stay motivated if you aren’t seeing the results you desire. If this is you, then you’re in luck as I’m going to provide you with some tips that will help you not only stay motivated toward your fitness goals, but to also get those results that you desire.

Create Mini Goals That Lead To Big Goals

You’ve probably heard it once if not a thousand times that setting goals is the best way to stay motivated to do just about anything. While that’s true for the most part, if you don’t set goals in the correct way, you can set yourself up for failure without even knowing it. This happens because most people set goals based on years or months. The problem with that being in the daily grind, those goals can seem really far off. For example, if you’re goal is to lose 20 pounds in 6 months, then the idea of having that cookie or cake today doesn’t seem like it would be a big deal, thinking ” 6 months is a so far away, so I have plenty of time”. If you set those goals that you normally do but also set “mini goals,” you can reach those bigger milestone goals in a more effective way. For the above example, you can have bi weekly goals to lose 1 pound or some other goal that can be accomplished in a shorter time frame.

Understand What Supplements Do & What They Don’t Do

It never fails that supplements get brought up in one form or another with anyone I work with. Supplements do work well and help out when it comes to reaching fitness goals, but most people don’t have a true understanding about the role supplements play in fitness and nutrition. They get far too much credit than they really deserve because they do work but only if you also couple that with a sound nutrition and workout plan. It’s important to understand what each supplement does and what it doesn’t do before you spend any hard earned money on them. Since I personally don’t really get into all the supplements too much and what they do, I would recommend heading over to http://www.themusclereview.com, as they have comprehensive reviews of the top supplements out on the market and also will show you the best prices for those supplements as well. You can click here to find out more information about the site and the guy behind it as well.

Have Patience

Even if the proper workout and nutrition protocols are in place, many people still get frustrated with their lack of perceived progress because they think it’ll come much faster than it really does. The truth is that to change the human body, it takes a lot of effort and time – it doesn’t just happen overnight. In fact, anybody that you see that has a great physique didn’t obtain that physique in a matter of months. It likely took them years of hardwork and dedication toward that goal. You should lower your expectations until you see how your body responds and understand that even slow progress is still progress. If you look at it in the grand scheme of things, those small victories will add up and create big changes.

The Low Carb Diet: Why Rice is Not Totally Bad For You

By on Mar 26, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

There are plenty of fitness experts and nutritionists who have removed rice from their clients’ diets in order for them to lose weight. This may be applicable to westerners who do not really consider rice as part of their staple diet. If you’re one of those people who only eat rice on occasion, removing it from your diet may not seem much of  a sacrifice. If this is the case than you’re better off removing bread or french fries from your meal plan. The calories and carbs in bread and potatoes can be equal to that of rice if you were eating it on a regular basis.

However, if rice is part of your culture and your daily diet, it could be very difficult to drop rice from the meal plan. In Asian countries for example, rice is eaten three times a day, sometimes as a substitute or even in conjunction with noodles and a protein source. Some nutritionists fail to see that this kind of meal plan is actually healthy because rice is normally eaten with fish, vegetables or lean protein. The Asian diet consists of lean meats or fish which is also stewed or grilled. Unlike Western food, their cuisine is not fat-heavy nor is it steeped in preservatives and extenders. So while rice is a staple, the rest of the other meal components is considered healthy so rice is not at all that bad.

In order to lose weight, cutting out rice from the diet is not exactly necessary. It could be decreased from three times a day to once or twice a day. Alternatively, healthier kinds of rice can be consumed. For example, there’s the brown or red rice option which is higher in fiber as well as lower in glycemic index. This means that it is not only healthier, but is a better source of carbohydrates for those who are watching their weight or suffering from conditions such as diabetes or other metabolic problems. The fact that it is less or almost unrefined also means that there is more fiber in it to help digestion and prevent colon cancer.

Actually, it is advisable to switch to healthier rice options from an ordinary potato and bread diet. It will come out much healthier and cheaper to buy in the long term. Most people also say that rice keeps them feeling full for a longer period of time

Red or brown rice can be cooked just the same way as ordinary rice. You can try to scout for the best rice cookers online after having read rice cooker reviews from moms or other credible people. If living alone, you don’t need a very big one. But the good thing about getting a larger one is you can cook the rice you will consume for a few days, portion it and store it in the fridge. You can then pack it conveniently for lunch or just microwave it when you come home from work at night. It will work well with stir-fried or steamed vegetables and fish.

Avoiding Scams When Buying Gemstones Online

By on Mar 22, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

You need to protect yourself from online scammers when buying jewelry. 

It might be very convenient to just go online and buy jewelry. You don’t have to worry about driving to the jewelry store or even run the risk of being robbed. When you buy online, you just have to place your order and it will be delivered straight to you. Other than you and the online jewelry store, no one else will know that you have made a purchase.

Well, this seems easy, but the truth is that it is also complicated. There are a lot of people who fool gullible buyers online. They don’t necessarily sell authentic jewelry or any item for that matter. They just want to get money and deliver nothing. Since jewelry can be very expensive, if you happen to meet these people, then you lose a lot of money at once. Thus, you need to be extra careful.

Get recommendations

The first thing that you need to do is to find recommendations from people who have tried buying from a particular online store before. By then, you are assured about its authenticity. For sure, your family members or your close friends will not lie to you. If they have encountered an online scammer before, ask about it so you can avoid it.

Read reviews

Another way to be certain is to read online reviews. There are a lot of people who have tried buying online before who wish to share their experience. Those who have been fooled will even create blogs just to warn others about a particular site. Thus, reading reviews help. By then, you will have an assurance that nothing wrong will happen to you. If you think that a particular site is questionable given its record, then just avoid to be safe.

Don’t buy from questionable sites

There are websites that don’t necessarily have anything useful in them. However, they have a tab where you can make direct purchase. In fact, the entire site is more concerned about getting money from you. The other information is not updated at all. Well, in this case, you have to run away. This is a scary website that you don’t want to have transactions with.

Look for popular sites

When you search for jewelry stores online, there are stores that come out on top of the list. This means that they are very popular. If this is the case, then you can trust them. It also means you have to pay more as they are popular, but it does not matter. After all, you are getting what you have paid for. Besides, they can provide promotions due to the number of clients that they already have.

If you really want to land with the best store, then do your research. Read about online sites and find out the best option for you. It is also great if you can read about Semi Precious Stones List, which is a really useful chart. It will help you identify which stone is perfect for you and where you can find them. Once you stay away from scammers, your online purchase will be just fine.

How you can build a better audience

By on Mar 21, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

The health and fitness industry is in shambles. There are so many bad products out there, and the products that are good tend to create so much hype through their bad advertising and marketing; they are almost guaranteed to disappoint the buyer.

On the flip side, the fashion industry is in a great position. Their advertising is fun, informative and helpful. Beauty and fashion magazines sell more clothes than any other advertising, and the funny thing is they aren’t even actively trying to sell anything. An article in a fashion magazine or blog on fashion tips, or how to dress for your first interview is likely to sell more clothes than the advertising itself in the magazine. Buyers like to be educated, entertained, and helped. They do not however like to be sold. The fashion industry understands this concept better than any other industry out there.

In this post, I want to help build a better understanding on how the health industry adopt this marketing strategy of selling while helping, instead of just selling. Look at the diet pill market. Not many people trust wild weight loss claims due to the over aggressive advertising campaigns launched over the last year or two. This is sad, as there are plenty of supplements that do work. The same applies to the anti wrinkle cream market. Some of the products work, but people don’t believe claims anymore in advertising because they have been scammed before. The solution is right in front of us. As an industry, in the health and beauty market we need to start adopting the marketing mindset of the fashion industry. It’s really that simple.

Let’s stop trying to sell by promising results that are fake or unrealistic. Instead let’s try to help people, and give them enough information to decide whether they need a specific product or not. Take for example this blog reviewing LifeCell Anti Aging Cream, which is a product designed to reduce wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance to your skin. They aren’t trying to sell anything. In fact there’s not even a buy button anywhere. It’s just an honest review of an anti wrinkle product.

Doesn’t that work better? Wouldn’t you be more inclined to buy from a website that is giving you honest reviews (Amazon comes into my mind here) and isn’t pressuring you to make a purchase.

Apart from informative blogs, what else can the health and beauty industry do to rebuild trust? Well, as the tile of this post already suggests, you can build trust with your audience. The best way of doing that is through social media. As an example, on this anti aging Facebook page, users can find the latest updates on which skin cream products are helping people. These honest reviews will either recommend a product, or tell consumers to stay away. Something I have rarely seen done by other beauty companies. Don’t limit yourself to Facebook either, start building trust with your consumers on twitter, pinterest and any other social network you can think of. As long as you’re giving honest, and useful advice, you’ll be a step ahead of the competition already!

How to Find the Best Lawyer for Your Company

By on Mar 17, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

Whether you run a small or a big company, you need the best lawyers by your side.

It is always good to have a lawyer for your company. You need one to check all the contracts you enter into. They will also defend you should you enter disputes with clients or other people you work with. They will also see to it that your company won’t lose money for all legal matters.

Highly recommended

The first thing that you need to do is to look for people who can help you out via recommendation. Seek help from friends whom you really trust or from family members who have worked with a corporate lawyer before. If you know someone who can work for you on a personal level, then it is great. You are assured that this lawyer is really for your best interest.

Legal expert

When you start your quest, you should not forget to ask questions first or conduct an interview to determine who the best person for the job is. These questions will give you ideas whether or not they really deserve the job. You can also throw some questions just to test them how much they know about corporate laws and related matters. This will also help you determine if you are comfortable working with them or not.

Affordable rates

Though this is not supposed to be the priority, you must still consider the rate for your lawyer’s services. This is true especially for small and medium enterprises. Take note that legal fees can be very expensive. For more ideas on average lawyer salary, you can go here. When you have compared their rates, you will then have an idea on who the best person for the job is.

Genuine Concern

There are lawyers who are only interested in how much they will earn for being hired. However, there are also those who are really genuinely interested in giving their clients what they deserve. You need to find the latter. It is not easy to find one, but by talking to them, you will know if the lawyer is really interested in your company and not just on how much you can pay them. It is also easier to work with this kind of lawyer since you can make demands or suggestions and you won’t have any problem at all.

If you follow these rigorous steps, you can land with the best person for the job. In the meantime, you can also considering hiring a paralegal. They can do a lot of stuff that lawyers do. However, they are paid at a much lower price. You can read about corporate paralegal job description at http://certifiedparalegal.net/paralegal-job-description/. If you think you can’t afford an actual lawyer for now, then you can ask a paralegal to help you out.

Do Water Ionizers Really Bring Health Benefits?

By on Mar 10, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

Also known as alkaline ionizers, water ionizers are a type of home appliance designed to change the pH level of water. As the product name implies, these devices make water alkaline from acidic. It is believed that drinking alkaline water produced by these ionizers is good for the body. While there are no clear evidences that support it, water ionizers are thought to have originated from Japan. Today, it is already being sold in Far Eastern countries, Europe, and the United States.

How Do Ionizers Work?

Water ionizers supposedly make use of ionization to alter the pH level of water. pH is short for potential of hydrogen, which indicates the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. Ionization, on the other hand, is a chemical process by which an atom or molecule obtains a negative or positive charge upon gaining or losing electrons. Ionization usually takes place in conjunction with other chemical changes.

Water ionizers serve as electrolysers or facilitators of electrolysis. This means that they enable an electrochemical process that splits water molecules into 2 atoms of water and 2 atoms of oxygen. After electrolysis, the water near the anode of the ionizer device becomes acidic while the portion near the cathode turns alkaline. What happens in ionizers is that only the alkaline water, the part near the cathode, is being released for consumption.

Benefits

Ionized alkaline water is being marketed to be capable of offering a number of health benefits. These include the slowing down of aging, the prevention of diseases through the boosting of natural immunity, and even the development of resistance against nuclear radiation. So far, there are no studies that support these claims.

The main selling point of water ionizers is their ability to produce alkaline water, which is said to have healing properties. It is said that drinking ionized water is beneficial to the body as it is thought to be capable of altering the body’s pH level. The goal is to bring the body’s pH level down to make it less acidic. There are arguments, however, that this claim is inaccurate because of the natural reaction called acid-base homeostasis. The human body itself already performs a balancing act to keep the body’s acidity and alkalinity in check. Still, there are users of water ionizers who swear by the positive results they experience.

The best water ionizer reviews and consumer reports for 2015, like those found in http://www.waterionizerreviews.net/ offer accounts that support the health benefits claimed by ionizer sellers. Many, however, will try to warn you to be careful about buying water ionizers since there are also many counterfeit products on the market. The ionizer cups or mugs, for instance, have dubitable ionizing capabilities.

Moreover, the reviews of water ionizing appliances are comparable to a Talking to Toddlers audio course review, like the ones found here. The reviews are usually straightforward descriptions of the product and statements of possible benefits. They highlight the good points concisely for easy reading and appreciation.

Water ionizers are a promising product that can be a great addition in a household. If you go over the health improvements accounts of those who have had the chance to use these alkaline water producing devices, it’s easy to get enticed to get one. You just have be careful not to fall for a counterfeit or defective unit.

Why Diamonds aren’t Forever

By on Feb 26, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

So, I saw this great chart thing about all the different gems that can be used for jewelry and it basically inspired me to write this post. I feel like for my generation, diamonds are a bit too classic, a bit too old school – basically, they’re boring. Nowadays, I see a lot of my friends rocking earth tone jewelry when they dress casual, and even at formal stuff like weddings and such, I don’t see that many people my age rocking diamonds. It seems like the classics have become a bit cliché – most people’s moms have diamond engagement rings, and if they’re wealthy they might also have diamond jewelry – and let’s face it – nobody wants to dress like their mom.

I think diamonds are slowly falling out of fashion with my generation for a few reasons. First and foremost, we’re hella poor and my guy friends who are getting married can’t really do this diamond engagement ring thing. Obviously everybody knows that the “millenials” (me included) are having a tough time financially after the old folks screwed up the whole economy, and basically, it’s not super realistic to expect an expensive, diamond engagement ring anymore.

But I also think that the culture has shifted a little away from this homogeneous, everybody-needs-to-do-the-same-thing style. I mean, it seems to me like among my friends, there’s “less keeping up with the joneses” – because we’re all dirt poor, we’re not really trying to compete with each other, so that old rule of whoever gets the biggest ring wins no longer applies. Also, I think people my age are more willing to rock their own style – so maybe 20 or 30 years ago, a sapphire engagement ring would’ve been seen as really odd, but nowadays the attitude would be more like ‘good for you for being different’. I mean, we’re probably more accepting of quirkiness in general – that’s definitely true politically, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it bleeds into fashion and culture as well. I mean, when I was in high school, people in certain cliques dressed a certain way, but nowadays when I see high school kids, it seems like all the traditional cliques have merged together (at least in terms of fashion).

I also think that it may have to do with the great awareness of the whole blood diamond thing. I mean, say what you want about that movie (I couldn’t understand their accents), but it seems like a lot of people weren’t aware that conflict diamonds even existed before they saw it. I mean, it’s not like it’s a huge national talking point or whatever but at least it’s in the back of people’s minds when they buy diamonds.
End of the day, for me personally, it comes down to price. Diamonds are crazy expensive, and they’re not even that interesting to look at. Like, I’d much rather have an interesting, colored gemstone over a diamond, and even more so because it’ll probably cost me 5 times less. I guess a big part of it is status – to the older generation, diamonds are a status symbol, and that matters because status matters. For my generation, (at least in my view), we’re all barely struggling to get by so we don’t really care about status symbols at all (or at least not status symbols that are just based on price). Like, I’m more impressed if you drink a certain kind of coffee or know a certain band that I like rather than if you have a huge diamond in your ring or necklace or whatever.

Anyways, that’s my two cents on why diamonds aren’t as popular as they used to be.

How To Keep Your Employees Happy

By on Feb 19, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

m4s0n501

Are you an employer looking for ways to keep your employees happy on the job? Happy workers are productive and will naturally develop company loyalty. In order to thrive, employees need safety, respect, smooth coworker relationships, and a health promoting environment.

Safety First!

The first key to developing a happy work force is to make sure your employees have a safe work environment. Make sure that your work place follows the latest government safety codes and regulations associated with your type of work environment. Make sure that safety equipment is being used when necessary. Develop safety training that is relevant and up to date. When employees feel safe, they can relax and do their jobs knowing that their employer is taking their safety seriously.

Treat Employees with Respect

Another valuable factor in creating a happy work environment is making sure employees are treated with respect. One way to show respect is to speak in a calm, engaging tone of voice, even when addressing shortcomings. Also, treat all employees fairly. Employers should make sure that they allow employees a certain measure of personal privacy. The golden rule goes a long way in the work place. Employers should place themselves in their employee’s shoes and treat them with dignity and respect, no matter what position they hold.

Create Smooth Interpersonal Relationships

Cultivating smooth relationships among coworkers is crucial for fostering a happy work environment. Consider which personalities work best together when developing teams to do different projects. If there is any friction, try to find a neutral party to informally mediate disagreements. Have clearly defined conduct codes in place to help prevent conflicts. Consider hosting office-wide events, such as company picnics, which will help to develop camaraderie among employees. Fostering team loyalty, clearly defining codes of conduct, and encouraging compatibility are all key components to employee happiness.

Promote Good Health–Install a Juicing Machine!

Another secret to promoting happiness at work is creating an environment that promotes good health. This is an idea from http://www.juicerfanatics.com/. Encourage regular exercise breaks. Consider including a gym membership in employee health plans. Install a juicing machine at the office. Give employees this alternative to coffee, soft drinks, and vending machine junk food that zaps energy and vitality. Fresh, natural fruit and vegetable juices from a juicer would do the exact opposite. These juices would give employees the energy they need to perform at their very best. An employer could simply purchase a juicing machine and place it in the break room. Then the employer can stock the refrigerator with fresh fruits and vegetables or encourage employees to bring their own. Employers who take these steps to encourage the health and satisfaction of employees may see their work performance soar to new heights.

With these simple steps employers can see their work environments transformed and their employees happier, healthier, and full of energy. A happy work force is a productive work force.

Finding the Right Clothes for Your Body Type

By on Feb 9, 2015 in Fashion | 0 comments

In a fast paced world like ours, the trends change in a bat of an eye. This is why it is always challenging to know if what is considered ‘IN’ at the moment will look good on us. For this reason, it is imperative that we be knowledgeable and familiar with the basic Dos and Don’ts respecting our body shapes. This way, we can look our best regardless of what is in style.

Triangle Body Shape

For women with this body shape, it is best to accentuate their finest features such as their trim waist, shapely legs and hips. As for tops, it is recommended that they do layering so as to create balance for their body shape. They can try filling out their upper body using cardigans, cropped jackets, and three-quarter sleeved tops. For bottoms, the best clothing item would be boot-cut pants. The flare that they have helps a great deal in balancing out curves, most especially when they are worn with high heels. As for skirts, the most recommended style would be those done in A-line cuts so as to highlight their trim waists.   

Hourglass Body Shape

The best features of women with this body shape are their breasts, curvy hips and slim waists. This does not mean that they have to show everything. Women of this shape are naturally sexy so they do not have to show off all their curves. It is best to choose simplicity in terms of tops and avoid layering. Jackets should be really well tailored. In terms of bottoms, the best pick would be knee or below the knee pencil skirts. For pants, they should try ones that are fit but not too tight. If you want to achieve that hourglass figure, you can always try a healthier diet, exercising more, or perhaps drinking protein shakes to help you lose weight. Check out http://bestproteinpowderguide.co.uk/reviews/electric-protein-shaker/ to find the best electric protein shaker available today.    

Circle Body Shape

The best features of women of this shape are their slight shoulders, slender legs and trim booties. Since their bodies are round-like, their clothing should help in adding structure to their look, especially on their upper half. Structured blazers, cowl necks, draped fabrics and flutter sleeves are great options. As for bottoms, slightly showing off their legs is a good call. But for the more conservative ones, the pants that would look good on them are the straight leg, slim or boot-cut ones. Dresses with gathering or ruching are good choices too for they hide the tummy and create a great hourglass effect.

Ruler Body Shape

Women with ruler shape bodies are very easy to dress up considering their slender and usually athletic build. For tops, the great options would be those with rounded or asymmetrical hemlines. Tops with ruffle details, halter tops, boat-necks as well as off-the-shoulder ones are great choices too. For bottoms, they should try high-waist trousers and wide-leg pants. These two add the much needed volume and curves to their lower bodies.

With these basic and must know tips, every woman can look and feel great no matter what the latest fashion trend is.
