How to Look Cool in the Cold: 3 Steps to Accessorizing this Autumn/Winter

March 8, 2019 — by Valeriya Vimon


While the rain and dips in temperature remind us that we’re slowly approaching autumn, many of us begin to rethink our cold-weather wardrobe. No short skirts or flowing sundresses – does that mean we’re sentenced to hide behind layers of clothes for the next 5-6 months? Well, even though the cold weather might not allow you to show much skin, it’s still a great chance to show your sense of style by introducing more accessories to your looks such as scarves, hats, gloves and more. That being said, if you’re looking for tips on how to accessorize this season, this is your guide.

Play with Texture

The drop in temperature always calls to bring the more textural clothes out of the closet. Materials with texture are great for keeping you warm, which is why the typical autumn and winter fashion trends can range from cosy knitted jumpers to extravagant faux fur vests, depending on your preference. That being said, accessories made of textural materials also fit the cold-weather trend. From scarves with chunky knits to suede gloves, wool berets, wide-brimmed felt fedoras, there are plenty of lady accessories that can keep you warm and stylish at the same time.

Don’t Be Afraid of Prints

The best way to deal with the gloominess is to uplift your outfits with colourful prints. Judging by the trends that dominated the other part of the globe, floral prints are going to be the biggest trend this autumn/winter season. While animal prints are a timeless cold-weather trend, this year they are going to be extra wild. Whether it’s leopard, zebra or cheetah – the more graphic and colourful your lady accessories are, the better. However, when accessorizing with prints, be careful to not overdo it. Never mix different prints, and only use one or two printed accessories per outfit.

Stay in Charge with a Large Bag

For every woman who depends on a large collection of things to get through her day (and that makes all of us!), I’ve got some great news. This season will be all about lush and spacious bags. While miniature shoulder bags and clutches dominated the past months, now it’s time to make a delightful contrast with large fall handbags. An oversized bag has an effortless, cool girl vibe and is designed to fit your essentials and even groceries if you will. From totes with tassels for a bohemian vibe to leather shoulder bags for a classic look or briefcase-backpack hybrids for a more intellectual touch– there’s a plethora of handbags to make your own this season.

How to Be a Better Skier – the Steps to Take for a Safer Experience

October 31, 2018 — by Valeriya Vimon

Are you planning a vacation to the snow-covered mountains? Great for you! Being on the piste and feeling the wind rush through you as you head down the slopes at a high speed is a thrill in itself. As a matter of fact, it is this thrill what makes people wanting to go back to the slopes year after year, especially those who prefer the more extreme elements of this sport.
However, as enjoyable as it can be, we can’t ignore the fact that, like most sports, skiing comes with a certain amount of risk. Falls are bound to occur, regardless of how good of a skier you may be, and collisions are relatively common. So, before you venture out to the slopes, it is essential that you have the right ski safety gear and know how to properly use it. Here are the basic pieces of protective equipment you should bring with you every time you head to the mountains.

Ski Helmet 

When it comes to preventing life-threatening injuries, a ski helmet is the most important piece of equipment you should wear. For the ultimate protection, get a ski helmet that fits you properly and make sure to keep the chin strap properly fastened so that it stays securely in place. Don’t assume that your football or bike helmet will do the job fine because they won’t. Get a real ski helmet that has all the right features and enables ventilation.

Knee Guards and Back Protectors

Skiiers, especially beginners, usually end up with bruised knees that swell really fast. For that reason, it is smart to invest in a good pair of knee guards. You can choose from the two types – rigid and squashy. The rigid type has become a bit old-fashioned after the invention of the squashy model. Besides absorbing impact better, squashy knee guards also mold to your shape, helping you maintain better stability.
While back injuries are not the most common type of injury related to this sport, they do happen and can be extremely serious when they do. In the past, people used to avoid back protection due to the fact that it is rigid, heavy and uncomfortable to wear. However, the great advances in technology have made it much more comfortable to wear. Nowadays, back protectors are created with more flexible materials, they fit better the shape of the back and follow your movement. Available in different models, including vests and jackets, the style you choose will depend on your personal preferences and needs.

Protective Shorts

Protective shorts are padded and they help protect your back and hips from injuries. They are designed to protect the coccyx which can be excruciating if knocked or landed upon, but they also help protect your thighs and hips in case of a fall. As a beginner, you will probably spend quite some time in the snow and this may result in a cold bottom if you don’t have enough insulation. Protective shorts often come with enhanced thermal technology which is a really good addition.

Spring is here, summer is coming and you can’t wait to set your feet free from wearing boots and feel exhilarated in your new pair of sandals. Sandals are the perfect wear for going to the beach, having a stroll in the park or hanging out with family and friends in the backyard. They are excellent for work as well. However, buying a pair just because they look cute or modern is a huge mistake. If they are not comfortable, they can cause foot problems which can lead to chronic problems such as corns, callouses and even problems with the lower back. So, in order to choose the perfectly comfortable sandals, here are the three steps to make (pun intended).

Comfort at the Workplace: The Steps to Ensure You Have It

September 4, 2018 — by Richard Dawson


A great deal of our life is spent on working. Some of us love our jobs, some of us hate them, regardless of which group you find yourself in, comfort always makes things better. You’re probably wondering now why is comfort at the workplace so essential?

First things first, it lessens stress, and as a result it improves the well-being, reducing the risks of health issues. Then again, it also makes the workplace a happier one.

This can be achieved in several steps: comfortable shoes, proper posture, reduction of noise and eye-strain. Starting with the workwear shoes, it’s advisable to look for specialised retailers that can offer versatility of brands combined with convenient prices.

Depending on the job itself, you may or may not be in need of extra safety in the form of composite cap footwear, but what no worker can do without are breathable shoes that keep feet dry, safe from perspiration which mean there’s no chance for athlete’s foot, and lightweight to reduce fatigue so no matter how much time you spend on foot, you don’t get tired easily.

Slip resistance is another property of quality workwear shoes as it translates to traction in varied terrains, accompanied by midsoles contoured to the foot’s natural shape. Okay, now that you know the importance of great shoes, and how to choose them, it’s time to pay attention to your posture.

Often we experience aches and pains that might appear to have nothing to do with posture, but chronic improper posture can lead to serious health problems, from disc generation, to back, neck, and shoulder aches, including persistent headaches, digestive trouble, and stress.

If your work required sitting hours on end, make sure you have an ergonomic chair, and try alternating between sitting and standing from time to time. It’s recommended to mind the posture no matter the job you have, remembering to keep the shoulders back, and avoid slouching. Something so simple can change your work experience for the better.

Often, we don’t realise the damage we’re doing until it’s done. This applies to the hearing and eyesight too, not realising consistent exposure to loud noise or eye-strain is doing a lot of harm. Sometimes noise can disrupt our work without realising it affects our productivity.

You have to have adequate ear protection, like headphones or tampons and suitable eyewear depending on the job, whereas office workers need to make use of natural light during the day and task lighting when working at night.

With the increased number of countries that are starting to slowly legalize recreational drugs, it’s only a matter of time before Australia does the same. Until then, people that enjoy doing recreational drugs will keep on doing recreational drugs, except they’ll have to keep on risking getting them from unreliable sources. I guess it’s safe to say that drugs won the war on drugs.
