It's sale time!!! There's still plenty of wintry weather to come so bag yourself a bargain. Here are some of my favourite finds for $50 or less.
It's a common fact that teenagers could literally eat a horse after school. What you really crave are unhealthy foods laden with sugar, fat and salt such as chocolate, chips and ice cream. I'm not suggesting you limit yourself to celery sticks for afternoon snacks but here are some healthy and tasty suggestions:
Dip and veggie sticks
Rice cakes with peanut butter (sliced banana on top is nice too)
Cheese and crackers
Mug of soup
Dried fruit and nuts
Every girl (and probably every boy too) should know some basic self defense. Here is great YouTube clip with some basic moves.
Asha is a Queensland university student with her own YouTube Channel, Beauty by Asha. I love her Valentine's Day Makeup and Hair Tutorial.
I'm not sure if she knows what respect is but she certainly has spunk.
I'm not about to tell you to quit sugar but we could probably all reduce the amount of sugar we consume each day. I found this image alarming. You can find it at and more information on the the Australian Healthy Food website.
According to experts, colour undeniably affects your mood.
Red for fear, anger and passion - use it sparingly, such as in a clutch or nail polish.
Blue for relaxing - great for first dates and job interviews.
Green for refreshed or relaxed - looks good on every skin tone.
Yellow for joyous and happy - don't wear too much unless you want to look like a walking banana.
Orange for enthusiasm and creativity.
Purple for confidence - good for job interviews.
Black for formality - it can either be a downer (think villains or funerals) or tres chic (think Audrey Hepburn).
See this Huffington Post article for more information.
Regardless of what effect colour has on our moods I think we all need to inject a bit more of it into our wardrobes, especially as the weather turns grey.
