I have to apologies to all my lovely readers for going a little MIA over the last few months and falling off the edge of the World. I had a little dry patch in my fitness and healthy lifestyle and in tern didn’t have the motivation to exercise or blog anymore.
Ever wonder why McDonald’s colour scheme is yellow and red?
We are naturally drawn to red, yellow and orange in our dining area or restaurants because psychologically it stimulates us to want to eat — and eat a lot. Studies show if you put your food on blue plates it can cause you to eat less.
Put the words “low-fat” or “fat-free” on the label and people will assume it won’t make them fat. But it’s worth knowing that “fat-free” or “low-fat” or “no added fat” usually means more sugar. Simple white refined sugar is the very stuff which converts to fat once in the body.
Have no fear, a swishing party is totally different from a swinging party, you get to keep your clothes on!
Swishing is, like, totally trending on Twitter right now, and there are loads of stores and organisations who have jumped on the Swishing bandwagon.
So what is ‘swishing’ anyway? Glad you asked. Wikipedia definition here.
It’s really just a street term for ‘swapping clothes’ (while drinking wine and gossiping.)
How does it work? It’s not rocket science. You get a friend to volunteer their place for an afternoon and then you go over with any clothes you don’t want to wear anymore. Perhaps you’re not ready to give the item to a charity store just yet, maybe you don’t want to cut the proverbial biblical chord to the point where you never see the item again. Perhaps you think it’s easier to part ways by giving it to a friend so you get to see it every now and then? It could be a belt, earrings, a bangle, a pair of shoes, an old coat, a shirt, you get the idea.
It’s a great way to go shopping without any money every exchanging hands.
I have been on the search for a quick and easy snack to take to work that I could nibble on in the afternoon. I was taking a few small things but noticed that I was always looking for more. Not really a huge meal but little things that I could snack on over a longer period of time.
It’s really simple, and I promise you its really tasty! I can’t believe how much flavour they have when you put them together.
It’s also so much better for you then the chips and chocolates we all tent to sneak in at least once a week.
