LIVE HEALTHY HARTSVILLE: A woman’s heart | Lifestyles

When we look at all the things that you do have control over, it should be noted that how you eat plays a major role in how well you can control several of these factors. The first thing I recommend to help your heart out is eat more vegetables.

If you focus on the foods that you can benefit from and work on adding them into your daily eating plan, you will start to weed out those items that you do not need as much of anyway. So, start with vegetables, especially the non-starchy kind, like greens, peppers, squash, tomatoes

These 6 Designers Prove New York Fashion Week Is Still the Place to Discover Emerging Talent

Hardly anything about the New York Fashion Week schedule looks like it did a year ago. For starters, the fall 2021 season kicks off this Sunday—about a week later than usual—not with a show, but with a virtual boot camp class hosted by AARMY. Dozens of presentations and events follow in the next five days, most of which are happening virtually, and many of the week’s biggest names—Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Tory Burch among them—are missing.

All to say, it’s a far cry from what we were doing last February: criss-crossing Manhattan and Brooklyn for back-to-back shows, cramming onto

‘Starting a brand was the greatest challenge I’ve faced’

Fashion is all I ever wanted to do. When I was young I just loved anything to do with design and making and drawing and coloring. It felt natural for me to do creative things but I didn’t create any masterpieces growing up. I never won anything. I was never the star. It wasn’t like I was being courted or anything because I was amazing, I just worked so hard at it and loved it so much. It’s just something I did all the time.

I’m from a small village in Co. Louth and the youngest of six, three boys … Read More..

The zero waste fashion designer taking over TikTok

Fast fashion is a spiralling problem for European consumers. In 2019, the UN reported that the fashion industry is responsible for 8-10 per cent of global carbon emissions.

Not only does the production of textiles require a lot of water and produce a lot of CO2, but many of these products end up going to landfill or being incinerated, instead of actually being worn.

Wasted clothing is where the damage of fast fashion is felt the most. In Europe, UK consumers buy the most items out of all other European markets, with each person purchasing an estimated 26.7kg of clothing

Surrealist Jewelry That Mimics the Human Form

“I’ve often thought there should be beauty contests for the insides of bodies,” one of a pair of twin gynecologists (both played by Jeremy Irons) archly tells a female patient in the Canadian surrealist David Cronenberg’s film “Dead Ringers” (1988). “You know — best spleen, most perfectly developed kidneys.”

While today’s jewelry designers may not be reaching inside our bodies for inspiration, a few are at play in the corporeal realm, casting body parts in precious and semiprecious metals to make necklaces, rings and even masks that have us seeing double. For her first foray into fine jewelry,

The Unbundling of New York Fashion Week | BoF Professional, News & Analysis

Dozens of brands are due to publish fashion films and look books next week. But the designers who are sitting this season out are also worth watching.

A decade after the last season of shows inside the tents at Bryant Park, many designers no longer feel they need to stage runway shows to build a business in American fashion. The defections from the fashion week calendar, a steady trickle over the years, turned into a stampede during the pandemic, when health restrictions made traditional runway shows almost impossible.

None of the fashion capitals are immune. In Paris and Milan, where

BHDM Design Founder Dan Mazzarini Talks Brand Narrative on ‘DesignBiz’

What is designer Dan Mazzarini’s secret to success? “Brand narrative,” he told Editor in Chief Cindy Allen (@thecindygram) on Thursday night’s episode of DesignBiz, Interior Design’s twice-weekly Instagram Live series.

That lesson is one of many that Mazzarini (@danmazzarini) learned 20 years ago, when he was a new designer cutting his teeth at a retail-centric firm in Chicago. “Twenty years ago was the heyday of retail,” he said. “Everybody had money to spend at the store. Macy’s was huge.” But when retail suffered a dip in the early 2000s, the firm took a hit. As

Halle Berry slams child support ‘extortion’ | Entertainment

Halle Berry has branded her child support payments “extortion” in an apparent swipe at Gabriel Aubry.

The 54-year-old actress was ordered to pay the 44-year-old model $16,000 a month in 2014 to help with their daughter Nahla, now 12, and she has suggested she doesn’t think the payments are “reasonable” and called for both parents to take financial responsibility for their children.

Earlier in the week, Halle had shared a meme on Instagram which read “women don’t owe you s***”, attracting a lot of comments from her followers.

And in response, the ‘Cloud Atlass’ actress – who didn’t mention Gabriel
