Benefits of Flat Shoes

Before highlighting on the benefits of wearing flat shoes, it’s important that we first find out the reasons why wearing heels is hazardous. Today, wearing high heels is considered stylish and sexy as the lady is made to look taller, modern and more professional .Wearing flat shoes is however perceived to be rather old fashioned .Most pumps (another name for high heels),are narrow, pointed and mostly two inch high. And the higher the shoe, the greater the pressure on the knees and the entire body. This makes wearing such shoe biomechanically and medically unsound.

Wearing pumps puts a lot of pressure on the knees and joints since the whole body mass rests on them. Doctors have over the years warned that high heels contribute to many health problems that include;

-Knee and back problems

-Serious injuries in case one falls

-Feet impairment

-Corns and Discomfort

-Unbalanced, awkward forward posture.

-Shortening of Calf muscles in the knee and joints.

It is very unfortunate that even after being made aware of these side effects, women just can’t stop wearing the pumps and the stilettos and thus continue to be victims of fashion. Studies have it that heels put much strain on the knee joints and tendons that link the knee cap to the thigh bone forcing the thigh muscles to work even harder. This leads to increased pressure inside the knee resulting to a condition known as osteoarthritis. This is a condition that develops as the cartilage in the bones and joints wears away leaving the bones brittle and susceptible to injuries.

Foot problems are rarely inherited meaning that they develop as a result of one’s negligence, careless lifestyles and lack of information. But for the lovers of heels reading this article, now you know better.

Benefits of wearing flat shoes are enormous. First, one will not experience the above problems that arise as a result of wearing heels. Flats enable the leg and thigh muscles to contract and stretch out fully thus preventing stiffness, pain and injury to the knees and joints. Other benefits include;

  • Flat shoes provide stability and balance. In addition they are very comfortable and flexible.
  • Flat shoes are very stylish and sexy when worn with the proper outfit just like heels.
  • In case of an attack or emergency, flat shoes offer the wearer the ability to take off fast.
  • Flat shoes come in a variety of styles and color and are suitable for both men and women of all ages including, the pregnant women because they are very comfortable.

It is a fact that women are four times more vulnerable to suffer from foot, back, knee and joint problems compared to men who over the ages have worn flat shoes. It is high time women embraced the trend of flat shoes and live healthier lives. With stylish flats, one can look sexy, fashionable and charming and so why not throw away your high heels in your closet and replace them with a great collection of different designs and colors of flats?

Why Every Girl Needs A Cosmetic Bag

Whether you are girl that keeps it mostly au naturale or a girl who likes to utilize every kind of beauty product, you will need a COSMETIC BAG to carry your gear. From a simple tube of lip balm to an arsenal of lipsticks and foundation, when your face requires quick touch ups, having a home for your girly goodies that makes them easily accessible is a priceless asset. And a trendy bag can be as much of an accessory to your outfit as a purse or piece of jewelry.

Your make up is supposed to enhance your natural beauty, but there is nothing enhancing or beautiful about sticky, melted lipstick at the bottom of your purse or a powdery film covering your checkbook! Keeping your beauty supplies, however humble, in a cosmetic bag will ensure that any accidental spills or leaks are contained and do not ruin other important items in your purse such as your credit cards, receipts, cash, or even photographs.

Your bag of beauty enhancements should, at the very least, contain a cosmetic brush set for applying oil-absorbing powder or foundation, a clear or tinted lip balm, a neutral-colored blush, and mascara. These basics will keep your prepared for unexpected meetings, unanticipated run-ins with important people, or looking refreshed for unintended long nights! Of course, you can add to your essentials if you’re feeling daring and include eye liner, an exciting shade of lipstick, eyeshadow, and even a quick drying nail polish to quickly transform from the proper office attire to the moody night life. With this kind of preparation, you can happily accept an offer out to dinner straight from the gym!

When you’re selecting your basic essentials, remember that a quality product is more valuable than the number of products you have. A product with high-quality ingredients can also have added benefits beyond cosmetic enhancement such as sun protection, anti-aging properties, or moisturizers. Also consider the quality of the tools you use for make-up application such as your COSMETIC BRUSH SET. Are the bristles used for the brushes obtained from a natural fiber? Are they made from sustainable materials like bamboo or recycled paper? Considering questions like this will make you both beautiful inside and out!

There are so many types, it will be easy to find a cosmetic bag that matches your personality and make up needs. Whether you need a large bag to carry everything in your make up drawer or a small, discrete bag to hold your minimalist beauty regimen, as long as your bag fits in your purse, you will be set. Choose a bag that you can easily pull out of your purse for quick touch ups in the restroom and that closes easily and securely. Flimsy closures are just as bad as having no bag at all.

The cosmetic bag also have the power to provide you privacy and protect your dignity when you are out. You can store travel sized deodorant and feminine hygiene products in your bag so that you can make a discrete trip to the restroom and be confident when you come out! All that is needed for a fabulous time out is a little planning ahead and a fun, fashionable bag to store the tools for a put-together look that has you ready for any situation.

How to Find the Right Pair of Jeans

It always feels good to go shopping for new clothes. At least until you start trying the clothes on. It may seem as though everything looks good until you get it on your body, especially when it comes to jeans. You may not realize it, but there are really only four main styles of jeans out there–not including the “mom jean,” which isn’t good for anyone. It is much easier to find the right pair of jeans if you know what type of figure you have. Are you an hourglass? Are you petite? Either way, there is a pair of jeans out there made just for you.


A petite woman is someone who is 5’4” or shorter.  If you’re petite, you should try straight leg jeans. These work well for most petite women because they make legs look longer and leaner than they really are. If you are extra curvy in the hip, you may want to try something more like a trouser denim. It will be much more flattering to your figure.

Full Figure

When searching for the right jeans for your body, there are a few things that you are going to want to do. Don’t try to hide in baggy jeans–this will just end up making you look bigger than you are. You should stick to jeans in darker denims and try to avoid fading as well. Darker denim will give you a slimmer look, while fading will most likely draw attention to unwanted areas. A boot cut or even trouser jean will almost always be the best style for you.

Tall and Slim

You have lucked out if you are tall and slim. It is less of a challenge for you when it comes to finding the right fit for your body. You could wear just about any type of jean you want, but a skinny jean would look fantastic on your body shape.

Apple Shape

If your top and bottom half are equally slim, but your midsection is wide, you have an apple shape. One thing that you should try is looking for a jean with a waistband that hits just below your belly button. This will help to balance things out a little and not show off your belly too much. When it comes to jean style, try something along the lines of a boot cut or a flair to help balance out your top and bottom half.

Hourglass Figures

Having a small waist and a larger bust line and hips classifies you as an hourglass figure. What you will want to look for is a jean that can balance out your curves. Your best bet will be to find a boot cut or flair leg jean.

The Basics

Overall, there are three things every woman should keep in mind when shopping for jeans. The first is balance–no matter what your body shape is you want to try and find some sort of balance in your bust, hips and waist. Secondly, if you don’t like it, don’t draw attention to it. For example, if you don’t want people to look at your butt or thighs, don’t buy jeans with rhinestones or a faded section right in that spot. Go for a clean dark wash and things will be just fine. Thirdly, keep in mind that pockets can make everyone’s life complicated. They either look funny on your butt or draw too much attention. Keep in mind that a smaller pocket accentuates a smaller bottom and bigger pockets help to hide a larger one.
