There comes a time when you need to get an insight in to yourself. We are all baffled and find it harder to make choices. Do I really want to make it happen or procrastinate for the rest of my life? Is business going to be my career or simply take it up as a hobby?...more
Rice is one of the main staple foods in India. I have personally heard many say that a meal is not complete without rice. This grain gets disguised in many forms and ways. We even have our breakfast items done with rice, like the Idlis and Dosas. One cannot ignore the major part it plays in being the center of attraction.
Emergency Preparedness BasicsThe most essential items to have prepared in an emergency situation are:1. WARMTH & SHELTER: In extreme conditions, an individual will survive only around three hours without any protection from the elements. If you don’t have adequate shelter, you won’t have a chance to get thirsty or hungry before you start to suffer from hypothermia or extreme heat exposure.2.

Opt only for pieces that can be worn together; accessorize to change up your look.
I just bought a Halogen three-quarter sleeve blazer. Of course, I am cheap, and didn't buy anything to match. What should I wear this with? It looks good with my nice jeans and ok with my khakis.

I am all about building a basic wardrobe; I really believe that when you have a core set of pieces that fit your body and work for your lifestyle, you can look great for any occasion. And while there are universal core pieces, plus-size women have specific needs for their basics wardrobe.
