The Fits and Styles That Wow Every Woman's Shape

Once upon a time, jeans were the classic go-to in the average woman's closet. The main reason was because jeans are comfortable, easy to match with anything and very versatile. Nowadays, things are changing a little bit. Now, leggings are the new pair of jeans. Leggings hug the body just right. They are incredibly versatile. They come in a variety of colors. They're usually pretty inexpensive to purchase. As if all of those traits weren't enough, leggings are quite possibly the most comfortable pants to wear on the planet. There may be some people who struggle to figure out how leggings can actually work in their everyday life. Well, consider these options.

1. Workout
A workout in jeans isn't quite a workout worth documenting. Jeans can often be restrictive and difficult to really work in even if they are stretch jeans. Whether a woman is in the middle of a serious spinning class or running a couple miles on the treadmill, the last thing she needs to be concerned with is her clothing. Leggings are the perfect workout gear for a woman who is preparing to break up a serious sweat. Leggings are usually made out of breathable cotton and allow for ventilation and absorption of sweat. They are also comfortable enough for a good session of Pilates or Yoga as well.

2. Casual Chic
Many women struggle with the desire to maintain a level of casual comfort while still looking polished and presentable. Many girls wear leggings around the house and while that is fine, there are many who don't want to be caught dead with leggings on outside of the house. There are a few ways around this. The Sofra leggings are a versatile pair that comes in various colors, but also come in a jean form. They look exactly like jeans yet they feel exactly like comfortable leggings. The jean style comes in both the classic blue jean design as well as a black jean style. A woman can wear jeans with anything. The same applies with jean leggings. One of the wisest ways to wear these comfortable pants is by wearing a long shirt to cover the derriere. Sometimes, leggings can be a little unflattering when this area is exposed. For a more polished look, simply choose a longer top to go with it.

Because of their versatility alone, every woman must keep a comfortable pair of leggings in her arsenal. They're comfortable to wear and easy to match with anything. Those two reasons are enough for a woman to make a leggings purchase immediately!

How To Teach Kids To Eat Vegetable

Yesterday I cooked green beans (mongo) with pork and coconut milk for our lunch. Actually this is my favorite dish. I just cooked a little just enough for three mouths including my son. I was so full except Janjan. He just ate a little. My son is so picky when it comes to food. He doesn't like any vegetables. His favorite are fried chicken, spaghetti, chicken/pork adobo and french fries. I tried to teach him to eat some vegetable like squash but he will just taste it a little and you can see his face that he is not happy with the food on the table if it is vegetable. But how do you get kids to eat vegetables? I let him see me eating and enjoying the food especially vegetables but he still doesn't like to taste it and most of the time, he can't clean his plate. I wish one day Janjan will eat vegetable.

Where's the Sale?

Most major department stores have permanent sale racks or regular areas where they keep sale merchandise, though the sale rack or section may not be in plain sight. Not surprisingly, a store would rather have you pay full price. If a store does not have a sale section or rack, ask when their next sale will be. But if you are looking for any musical instruments like apollo twin, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com.

3 ULTIMATE FUN-FILLED ACTIVITIES TO DO WITH YOUR FAMILY THIS WEEKEND

Children can surely be a handful at times – the constant nagging, whining and bickering that goes on during the wee hours of the morning, or perhaps as soon as you get home from work in the evening might lead to a significant headache at around dinner time. Usually children seek attention in various ways such as crying incessantly or trailing behind your back.

While you’re pestered and can’t think of anything exciting other than just taking a drive to your nearest and favourite restaurant or spending the night at Grandma’s, we at Family Funtures, have just the solution for your woes as we bring you the top 3 ways to spend a fun-filled, thrilling and exciting weekend with your family, and that too ensuring peace and contentment.

1) DRIVE TO THE COUNTRYSIDE:

The moment you realize that your children wouldn’t stay put within the vicinity of a dull crib or let’s say, a dull playpen with dolls similar to Annabelle or Chucky’s wooden horror in disguise, take a drive to the countryside after packing a picnic basket with plenty of fruits such as watermelon, lemonade, fried chicken and spaghetti with plenty of meatballs.

While you’re thinking that this would be a boring picnic like all the others you had at your nearest cove, Family Funtures has something unique and special planned for all of you. While you’re planning for a picnic the following weekend, gather all the rocks you can see in your backyard, rinse them thoroughly and dry them.

After covering each rock with decoupage glue (for instance, Mod Pudge), wrap them with printed papers, patterned sheets, decorative buntings or abstract pieces of cloth. Put these rocks and stones on the picnic blanket as paper weights or play hopscotch with them after a fulfilling picnic.

2) BAKE AWAY:

While you’re mixing up a batter of your chocolate chip cookies, invite your children into the kitchen and let them play with the dough. To spend a fun-filled and productive evening, wrap your children with aprons and listen to Mary Poppins ‘Just a Spoon Full of Sugar’ while you let your children mix eggs and whisk the batter for their self-made recipes, like oatmeal raisin cookies or any other. You can also bake a couple of cakes and squeeze oranges for orange juice or make the tallest milkshakes your children have ever seen. Be open to their judgment and add various toppings such as nuts, sprinkles or chocolate shavings, ice cream scoops and plenty of chocolate syrups. Make it worthwhile their time.

3) ARTS ‘N’ CRAFTS:

While finger painting takes the cake, it is time for you to be more innovative with arts ‘n’ crafts. While you can paint each section of the children’s room’s wall with a coat of their favourite cartoon characters with their help, you can also plan out a fun masquerade and paint props and backdrops, and invite their friends to the little shindig.


This weekend, collect fallen leaves and flowers from your backyard and place them atop a sheet of paper along with paints and plenty of pastel crayons. Teach your children about the turn of the seasons by painting the leaves in different shades. Paint the flowers in different shades, and draw similar cut outs with their help onto paper and string the petals in their bedroom – stretching from one corner to the other – with the help of colourful strings.

Arts and crafts open an entirely new frontier for us and toddlers both. You can administer glow in the dark lights in their rooms and place them in little transparent vases with artificial flowers. You can also go to a community service center and teach them about serving humanity and encourage the feeling of care and responsibility in them. Take them to prehistoric exhibits or the Egyptian exhibits at the museum – learning about dinosaurs and mummies always create interest in children.

Why consider having a babymoon?

This has been a trend nowadays – many couples are observing babymoon. A babymoon is the last getaway that first time parents do before they welcome their newest blessing. Here are a few reasons why you and your partner should consider having a babymoon.




1. This is your last getaway without the baby
A life with a newborn can be very challenging for couples. It changes so many things in your household. So before the arrival of your baby, grab that last chance to be with your partner before the little one comes along.

2. To be able to de-stress
Pregnancy can be very tiresome and stressful. This is the perfect time to be able to reenergize yourself together with your partner. You can go to a place that offers a prenatal massage, or help yourself to a lemon water, but make sure the place will not overexert you too much by too much walking or stairs.




3. To bond with your partner
You may be both busy at work – take this chance to be away from the hustles and bustles of the city and give yourselves a break. It is still different when it’s a getaway. It takes your mind away from your daily routine.

Whether you and your partner decide to have a babymoon together or not, one thing to consider before doing so is your finances. Giving birth and having a newborn can be expensive. Don’t overspend on a babymoon; there are things you can both enjoy without breaking your bank accounts.

Hot Weather?

When the weather gets hot, most people instinctively seek a place that is cooler and more comfortable. However, not everyone is so fortunate. The frequency of heatstroke among persons age 65 and older is 12 to 13 times that found in other age groups. Also those of low socioeconomic status suffer more than others.

Heatstroke tends to occur more frequently among residents of homes without air conditioning or which are surrounded by only sparse growth of trees and shrubbery. Living in the upper floors of multi-storey building is also associated with heatstroke because of increased exertion from climbing stairs.

Other persons often suffering discomfort and heatstroke are military recruits, those exposed to high temperatures at work, the chronically ill or bedfast, alcoholics, the mentally ill, and those taking nervous-system drugs.

During hear waves those at highest risk should reduce their activity and avoid the heat as much as possible, staying in the coolest available place, not necessarily indoors. If possible, they should use an air conditioner or fan to cool and/or circulate the air. If unable to do this they should spend some time each day in an airconditioned place.

It is important to drink lots of water when it is hot. However, thirst is not a good indicator of need. As much as 50 percent more fluid than the amount dictated by thirst may be needed. Alcohol consumption should eliminated during very hot weather.

Salt tables should not be taken unless prescribed for a special condition.
If you find yourself in a hot place and you begin to feel uncomfortable, remember the three simple rules of preventing heatstroke:

1. reduce activity
2. spend time in an air-conditioned area
3. drink extra non-alcoholic liquids.

We're a Band Member Long Time Ago

I was so happy to see my friend again yesterday. She is married to an Australian man, and they are living in Australia. She arrived a week ago with her husband and only son. We were in the band when we were young. She was the lead guitarist, and I was the singer. We had a blast yesterday as we also celebrate her son's 2nd birthday. We talked a lot of things, like what happened to the rest of the band members. She told me that she still plays guitar in Australia, but not on the stage anymore. Anyhow, she is looking for an allen and heath qu 32 at Guitar Center. She wants to give it to her brother since her brother also works in the band.
