Why Women Are Ditching Thongs

The Huffington Post reports that we are heading towards a more inclusive “body-positive” society with women ditching thongs and wearing “granny panties” or full-bottom underwear. This style comeback has lead us to a great movement that has shown women to shop for themselves and dress however they feel comfortable.

According to Marcio Alaor BMG in an article on mzweb.com, a lingerie brand that empowers women to be themselves, Lonely Lingerie, has launched the Lonely Girls Project. This new project encourages women to photograph themselves in their natural state wearing lingerie they feel comfortable in and posting them to Instagram.

Lonely Lingerie designer Helene Morris says “The Lonely Girls aren’t telling women how they should look. We want women to look at the imagery and realize they don’t have to be a certain way to feel beautiful. We simply wanted to offer the idea that it is okay to be yourself.”

These “granny panties” maybe be and old style, but Myla Dalbesio, a plus size underwear model, says “the high-waisted and high-cut styles hark back to a time when different body shapes were in style.” This is leading us to the increase of awareness our society has emphasizing a body-positive message. These styles are coming back from an older time with an amazing message that has always been true, you are beautiful just they way you are.

Anastasia Date: A Chance to Find Your Romance Again

Just like shopping and information sharing, dating has been brought to a whole new level today. The days when one had to wait to bump into their better halves on the street, in the office or at a friend’s wedding are gone and now all one needs to do is to join a dating site, create an online profile, and sift through other profiles to find a suitable match. Anastasia Date is one such dating site.

A Little History

Launched in n 1993, Anastasia Date was founded by Anastasia Nikolaevna who was Russian by then but became an American through marriage. The business initially served tourists whereby excursions would be organized for American men who wanted to meet up Russian females. As time went by, however, Anastasia Date gained popularity an eventually established an online presence in 2003.

Any singles who want to find their better halves can therefore join this site as the company aims to facilitate worldwide dating. Accordingly, Anastasia Date currently has members from more than 110 countries with the membership totaling to over 4 million.

The Benefits

Anastasia Date makes hooking up with a new person really easy. For the females on anastasia Date, the highlight of this is that the need to repeatedly touch up the makeup and wear painful heels is eliminated. Besides, since the anastasia date site is global, it’s easy to date without having to be too concerned about geographical borders.

What Month Were You Born?

Some of the health issues that you experience might be related to the month of the year you were born. That’s according to what some researchers have discovered. This is about as absurd as any theories come. No one can detect what kind of health issues you will face just because you were born in a certain month. It almost seems like researchers are trying to tell people that if you were born during a certain time of the year, then you have to worry about heart disease or a stroke or some other illness that you might not even get. The stars don’t play a part in what health conditions you have.

 

There are genetic factors and lifestyles to consider according to Susan McGalla. The only thing that you might inherit from being born in a certain month is whether there is hot weather or cold weather. Some people should really check the facts of reports released before making too much of a commotion over them.

Christopher Lee Passes Away at 93

Sir Christopher Lee was a man that we would call a generational talent, and his talent spanned multiple generations. The famous actor was most famously known for his work on the mega franchises ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’ but in reality his on film career spanned for decades. His work touched people, his personality kept them entertained, and his multiple talents fueled his desire to live a long and fulfilling life. It is with great sadness that the man passed away at the age of 93 this past Wednesday.

It’s hard to look at a film icon like Christopher Lee and not imagine him still around and working on something. Whether he was consumed by his latest Christmas Metal album (seriously!) or reprising his role as Saruman in the box office smashing trilogy ‘The Hobbit’, Lee was in the public stratosphere in some way. Gianfrancesco Genoso certainly knows that as fact. To remember him most would take a long time, but let’s discuss one of our favorite moments with Christopher Lee.

It was 2000 and our first time really seeing a ‘blockbuster’ in theaters. Too young to have enjoyed ‘Jurassic Park’ or ‘Star Wars’ and just old enough for ‘Lord of the Rings’. Gandalf had just been sent to Saruman to seek his aid in the hit film ‘Fellowship of the Ring’ and it was there that Lee, as Saruman, would make the greatest villain turn in the history of Middle Earth.

The Matt Landis Look In Three Easy Exercises

You too can look this good… No gym required!

Livestrong.com outlines these effective exercises in their article “Arm Workout Without Weights”. The article describes a routine to strengthen your arms and build your physique that costs almost nothing, in terms of time and money. It’s a simple routine, recommended two to three times a week, with a five minute cardio warm up to start and three basic exercises to target your triceps, biceps, and shoulders.

The first exercise, triceps dips, requires a chair or bench, and is done by holding the edge of the seat and “sitting” on the air just in front of the seat. Lower your butt until your elbows are bent to 90 degrees, and, using your arms, raise yourself back up. For your biceps, hit up the local park or playground, grab a bar, and knock out as many chin-ups as you can – make sure you’re holding the bar with your palms facing towards your body. Finally, slide under a low bar and strengthen your shoulders with eighth to 15 rear deltoid inverted rows: with your knees bent and heels planted, grab the bar, pull up in a rowing motion, and slowly lower yourself back down.

Do these exercises every other day to strengthen your arms, broaden your shoulders, and look as sexy as Matt Landis in, and out of, your sleeveless shirts!
