Mother’s Day Ideas

Are you looking for Mother’s Day ideas? Well since I am a Mom, I have a few Mother’s Day ideas that I am sure your Mother or the Mother of your children will love. The first thing is do you want to buy her a gift, take her somewhere or both?

Here are a few Mother’s Day ideas on what you can take her to do:

  • Mother’s Day Brunch: this is one of my favorite ideas. I love brunch and I love being taken to brunch. We will probably hit up my favorite brunch spot, Brassiere 8 1/2. If you are in NYC it is a great spot for brunch on holidays.
  • Picnic: Now that the weather is picking up, a picnic is a fantastic Mother’s Day idea. Being in NYC, I would obviously suggest Central Park as a location.
  • Get out and exercise: We like to stay active as a family. Try going out for a leisurely walk or if you are into a vigorous walk. It is fun to get do some physical activity together.
  • Take her out for a nice dinner. All ladies want to be taken out to a fancy restaurant for dinner , at least I know I do!

Now let’s talk gifts. There are some of the obvious choice and a few of the things I would like to have. I know that is selfish of me but I thought I would throw it out there into the universe and maybe I will receive one of these ;)

Your obvious choices, also always work. I mean who does not love to receive flowers, chocolate and/or perfume. You could always send her to the spa for a massage or a manicure and pedicure. What ever you decide, I am sure that she will love it!

Trendy Bikinis That Won’t Go Unnoticed

Summer is here, which means it’s time to dust off your special money bank, break it up, grab your money, and go bikini shopping for those gorgeous pieces that’ll show off your curves and assets, leaving mouths hanging, and the girls green with envy. It’s a wonder that there was a time there used to be a full-length dress which used to be called a bikini, but then times changed, and the wonderful era of the two pieces, geo prints and cut-offs started trending. This summer, we’re going to look at the new swimwear trends that are secretly taking the fashion world by storm.

 Monokinis

Monokinis are one-piece swimsuits which have been trending since 1964, and it’s a trend that’s here to stay. Monokinis not only make women feel comfortable about their bodies but enhance those assets which you want to flaunt. Designers have taken monokini designs to the next level. This bikini was designed to be a unikini, which meant that it only covered the bottom part of a woman’s body, which makes it a very popular choice for those in favor of freedom from the over-sexualized culture of society, but for those a bit conservative, monokinis are available in beautiful designs and have been favored by swimwear designers all over the world.

 Retro Bikinis

Retro has become its own master in the swimwear world. Retro bikini designs range from old-school flower patterns to big and bold geo prints. Retro bikinis give a look of classic elegance with a hint of mischief, and that is really what one wants from a bikini. Retro styles have been big in fashion for many years, and as the summer sneaks up upon us, designers are releasing gorgeous designs in retro bikinis that will suit even the choosiest of people.

 Sheer Bikinis

Why shouldn’t you be a little naughty when it comes to swimwear? Bikinis have always been tantalizing pieces of clothing, but with new sheer designs, such as see-through, mini bikinis, micro and thong bikinis, the swimwear is making sexy look old. Sheer bikinis are dangerous and daring, and when you wear one, you feel like you can conquer the world.

 Leather Bikinis

Leather bikinis are slowly making their way across the swimwear chain and people have noticed. Leather swimwear is unconventional, and with such edgy and dramatic styles, leather swimwear is for the bold and the daring! With multi strap, sexy lacing, and powerful colors, leather bikinis are creative enough for any bikini lover.

 Trikini

Trikinis should come with a warning: ‘Extremely sexy, trikinis are not for the faint-hearted’. Trikinis have been making waves in the swimwear industry since 1967, and have not stopped since. Designers from all over the world have called trikinis tricky to pull off, but when you do, they make you feel like a goddess. Trikinis now come adorned with rhinestones, sexy string designs and require you to have your top game when you come out and wow everyone in your garb.

With the summer right on top, knowing which bikini is going to be in fashion is important, so when the holidays come around, bring your A-game, and wow yourself with your own style, because that’s what counts.

Double your Fashion Mileage by Using (Some) Sleepwear as Loungewear

loungewear

We know you only have so much closet and drawer space, much less shopping budget, to go around this spring. Making the home a place of retreat where people look forward to going to rest, unwind and rejuvenate after a long day is a definite trend in decorating and it has spilled over into fashion. Whether you are looking for something you can put on after a long day at work or school, or want something that will look good when spending a lazy weekend at home, using sleepwear as loungewear is an excellent choice.

Classic Long-Sleeve Pajama Set: Perfect for Chilly Spring Nights and Mornings

Early spring tends to be a bit chilly, and snuggling up in a set of long-sleeve pajamas is just the thing after a long day. You’re covered up enough that if someone does happen to come to the door, you could answer it, but this outfit, with its drawstring pant and unrestricted top, allows you to relax and feel free the moment you slip it on.

T-shirt and Pajama Pant Set: Light, Fun Choice

If you like to have your legs covered up at night but are concerned that long-sleeved pajamas may be too heavy for you, consider buying a set featuring a T-shirt and pair of pajama pants in a flattering solid color of your choice.

The advantage of choosing this type of set is that you could get away with wearing it if friends stopped by unexpectedly after you had changed into your pajamas after arriving home at the end of the day or on a weekend. Unless you told someone who you were still wearing your sleepwear, no one would be the wiser!

There are a number of lovely nightshirts, gowns, camisole and short combinations available, but you can’t throw a jacket over top of them and run out to the corner store if you run out of something in a pinch. (Technically you could, but you may end up getting way more attention than you had bargained for….)

Tank Top and Capris: Go Casual for Bedtime and Hanging Out

When you want a casual, fuss-free look, a tank top and Capri pants is definitely the way to go. No extra fabric to get caught when you roll over during sleep like when you wear a nightshirt or gown, and you won’t be too hot at night. When you want to hang out at home, you’ll look neat and casual. If you feel a bit chilly, just add a hoodie for warmth.

Pajama Shorts: For When you Can’t Wait for Summer

Who says shorts are just for the summer, anyway? Get comfortable and wear pajama shorts to bed and around the house for spring. Loose-fitting shorts will help you to get the rest you need and feel relaxed while lounging, and several styles of tops are available to go with them, including T-shirts, tank tops, button down shirts, and ribbed half sleeve tops.

 Author Bio: I am Sophie Eagan, and I love anything fashion. I thought I would share this publication with you all as sleepwear is not covered that much online, I think being comfortable and looking great before and when in bed is just as important as evening and summer wear. I was actually going to cover the onesie in this article as many adults are now taking to wearing them!

Do Women Really Need to Wear Bras?

bra

If you ask most women this question, you will probably receive mixed responses. Some women believe a woman should always wear a bra throughout the course of the day regardless of what she will be doing. On the other hand, there are women that believe bras should be worn when the woman wants to wear one or when the occasion requires the wearing of one. For many women the decision on when to wear a bra and what kind of bra they are wearing is dependent upon the event or occasion. Over the years there has been research done regarding whether or not women really need to wear bras. The researchers have come to conflicting decisions in whether or not women should or should not wear bras.

Researchers Against the Wearing of Bras

There are some researchers out there that state women, in general, should not wear bras. They suggest that despite the belief that bras help with sagging breasts, that is in fact not the case according to their research. Following a study of 330 volunteers ranging from 18 to 35 over the course of 15 years, French researchers found that by going without a bra for a year women had firmer breasts, the nipples were sitting higher than they were previously, and that stretch marks faded. They went on to say that, the wearing of bras causes the deterioration of the muscles that support the breast because the growth of breast tissue is hindered.

Researchers also claim that wearing bras can cause unnecessary neck and shoulder pain. This idea is one that is shared by researchers on the to wear or not to wear a bra debate because the fact remains, if a woman wears the wrong size and type of bra it will not give the proper support or dig into the shoulders which can lead to extensive back, neck, and shoulder pain. One woman who took part in the survey agreed with the researchers’ suggestion that not wearing a bra helps with back pain. She stated she had better posture, reduced back pain, and was even breathing much better, all because of going braless.

Researchers and Doctors for the Wearing of Bras

One of the major issues related to whether or not women should wear bras is the notion of sagging. Researchers claim that individuals that choose not to wear a bra will suffer from sagging breasts more than women that go without the simple, decorative, or sheer lingerie. A doctor that specializes in breast health states that the wearing of bras is essential when it comes to helping fend off sagging breasts. Even women with smaller breasts need to be aware that once gravity and age has started to impact where your breasts sit on your body the only thing that can reverse that process is costly and painful plastic surgery.

Those individuals that support women wearing bras also state that wearing the proper bra to fit your breasts, as well as the right style, can help a woman reduce pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. A proper fitting bra also has the ability to help with a woman’s posture.

At the end of the day, it truly is a woman’s decision if she wears a bra or not. If a woman can go without wearing a bra, or use alternatives, like chemises or nipple covers, she can live happily without the problems associated with wearing a bra.
