Top 5 Fall Trends 2014!

Image
Fall is coming. It's coming fast! And so are the trends! That's what I love about fashion and beauty, there is no ending. No matter how many times a thing or a style becomes a trend, it's always fresh. If you're like me who has been waiting and will always wait for the new trends every season, here are 5 trends for Fall 2014!
Braids

I think braids will always be "in" no matter what season. Maybe because there are lots of braids styles to choose from and one season is just not enough to wear them all! haha Fish braids, crown braids and princess braids would be my top three picks. But for Fall 2014, bun with braids will be trendier than what I've just mentioned.

"How to Get a Dancer's Body" From the Theater's Stars

Image
I’ve recently been a fan of Broadway musicals that feature dance. 1975’s A Chorus Line, 1975 and 1996’s Chicago, which I both adore, 1986 Broadway revival of Sweet Charity and other on-stage productions with killer dance routines fill my Youtube account. When I watch a video of Bebe Neuwirth and Ann Reinking doing “Nowadays”, I’ll be hooked on it throughout the evening.
I’m not only amazed with the complex dance moves, frivolous costumes and colourful vocal prose these musicals have. What I most admire about is how the dancers look and how fit they are to be sashaying in different directions with Fosse hands and not skip a beat.
Every dancer has his/her own tips on looking good and being fit. So, here is a short list on how to get a dancer’s body straight from the theater's stars.

Are You Happy?

Image
Finished all my working hours for the week so I'm relaxing and just reading interesting articles across the web. Stumbled to 9 Things You Seriously Need To Drop To Be Happy and it sure was spot on. I don't usually leave comments on articles that I read but this one was something I couldn't just ignore. I would suggest everyone to read this article by Alden Tan.

Here are some of the phrases that really stood out to me:
"Let go of the attachment. Whatever happens, will happen. Accept it, learn from it, grow and keep enjoying the process."
The hardest part in everything, I guess, is to let go. I could almost hear Idina Menzel singing Let It Go. We always try our best to do everything we can and we end up frustrated because it's not happening in our time frame and sometimes not the kind of  things we want to happen. I guess I have to do what the author said, accept it, learn from it and enjoy the process.

Image
I'm always up for a massage and I will never say no to it *hides face* haha I get a massage usually once a month, therapeutic one, as I always feel better after every session. I'm very lucky to live in a country where getting a massage isn't that expensive even for the best ones! When I went to Europe last February, I never had the chance to experience it as it was very expensive. That's why the first thing I did when I arrived home was go to my favorites massage place and had a relaxing 1 hour and 30 minute massage. Well anyway, for this post, I'm going to give you five reasons why you need to splurge on a good massage!
1. One of the very reasons I like going to a Spa or Massage Parlor is I always feel relaxed and calm when I'm there. I love parlors who play slow instrumental music, have an air diffuser with peppermint or anything that's like it and most of all, dim lights and candles. Typing these things makes me relax even haha! :p I have been to Spa…
