Love and acceptance go hand in hand, most of the time. We can accept the grumpy attitude and the messiness, but when it comes to style, that’s a variable we can have some input in. Your significant other is an extension of yourself and if you take your style seriously, your partner dropping the ball in that department can feel a little embarrassing.

You obviously don’t love your boyfriend any less because of how he dresses, or that he’s less of a person in your eyes, but sometimes guys just need a little help to reach their full fashion potential. Here is a walkthrough guide to help you to get your man to up his style game without hurting his feelings.

Understand them

If your boyfriend doesn’t have a specific style, chances are he just doesn’t know any better. Many guys just dress for comfort and don’t even think about what it looks like.  You need to understand why he dresses the way he does and ask honest questions about his clothes preferences. 

Questions like ‘what draws you to that outfit?’ or ‘what outfit makes you feel the most confident?’ are good. Be open to his answers, listen and see where the conversation leads. You will learn a lot about why he dresses the way he does. Does finding his own style overwhelm him? Does he truly not care about fashion? Does he just hate shopping?

Buy him clothes as presents

If he doesn’t want to go shopping, there is no reason why you shouldn’t. Get the tape measure out and take his sizes and shop at the places that allow returns. Use birthdays and Christmas as an excuse to buy clothes for him. If you decide to buy it at any other time, say that it was just because you were near the shops anyway.

Before you purchase him some clothing, remember to firstly check with him what his favourite clothes are and if they are getting old, find some replacements. Concentrate on the quality rather than the quantity, men look much better in high-quality clothing. Also, ensure it is a style you know he will be comfortable with so that it doesn’t get thrown to the back of the wardrobe and never seen again.

Lead by example

If you look nice and make an effort for your partner, it may make him want to do the same for you. If you want him to have a clear out of his clothes, do one of your clothes and ask if he wants any of his clothes taken to the charity shops also. 

Your man is probably interested in looking good but has no idea how to do it. You can be his educator and help on online clothing shops and find male fashion bloggers to encourage and inspire him. Help him to understand his style mistakes and work together to overcome them.

Pay attention to detail

If you really want a guy that gets a lot of fashion compliments, turn his eye towards the finer details. If he wears a suit or blazer, add in a pocket square or tie bar. It is these little details that round out a man’s look and set him aside from the herd. Accessorising for men is no different to women; it just requires a little bit more subtlety. 

Match his personality, not yours

Another important thing to remember when you are helping to style your boyfriend is that he is not a mannequin. He has his own individual personality and improving his dress sense should be a team effort. Bring out his specific attributes with little touches like jewellery and cufflinks are a great way to put personality into a suit. Visit this website for some stylish cufflinks that are great for a personal statement.

If you are sure to consider how to reflect his inward personality with his outer style, you will end up with a stylish man who is wearing the clothes rather than a man who is letting the clothes wear him.

There seems to be a growing pressure on us to stay younger for longer. In part, this is due to the media portraying an image of ever young celebs with comments like “doesn’t he look good for his age”. But, it’s also because we stay fitter for longer and live to be older than in times gone by. 60 is no longer considered old. 60-year-olds are out there having the time of their lives. So, why should they settle for looking old when they don’t feel it? To a degree, this will be down to genetics, which there isn’t anything you can do about. But, here are seven ways to look and feel younger for longer.

Look After Your Skin

Your skin is the first thing to show signs of aging. Often as early as your late 20’s, fine lines start to appear around your eyes and mouth and cellulite will start to show itself. Your skin is only perfect and youthful for a short time, so make the most of it and start taking care of it. Moisturize daily to restore any moisture your skin loses, cleanse morning and night to clear any impurities, and most importantly, apply sunscreen before going out on a hot day.

Take Care of Your Hair

It’s hair that people often notice next. You can’t stop your hair showing the obvious signs of age by going gray or falling out. But, you can correct it. Even home hair dye kits are now incredibly effective at covering the grays and a hair regrowth product can work wonders at covering any bald spots.

Sleep

You probably already know that if you don’t get enough sleep your skin looks dull, there are bags under your eyes, and you feel grumpy. Do this regularly and this will become your natural look. To look bright-eyed and youthful be sure to get eight hours as often as possible.

Eat Right

Eating well will help your body to look and feel great. The odd treat isn’t going to hurt, but aim to eat a healthy and balanced diet packed with fresh fruit and vegetables for a younger and more glowing appearance.

Drink Water

Water is a powerful thing. Your body is made up of huge amounts of water, some of which get lost throughout the day, so keep it topped up with around eight glasses of water to keep your organs functioning at their best and give your skin extra elasticity.

Exercise

Exercise will help you live longer and look better as you age. It will help to keep you in shape, keep you strong and improve your posture. Standing straight can instantly improve your appearance and take a few years off.

Smile

Smiling is the easiest way to look younger. So, stop worrying, grow old gracefully and enjoy yourself.

For the most part, simply looking after yourself well and having fun is all you need to look younger. So, however old you are, get out there and enjoy life.

Two local sisters on a mission to save the world launched a line of natural, super-good-smelling products in reusable, returnable, refillable containers. Read on for more!

 

Junk Beach: The children of Plaine Producct’s founders on Junk Beach in The Bahamas. It was scenes like this that inspired the sisters to start Plaine Products.

One day, it hit them. Every piece of plastic that has ever been made still exists. That realization changed the course of life for two local sisters, and now they’re hoping they can change the world, too.

Lindsey Delaplaine McCoy and Alison Delaplaine Webster, sisters and co-founders of Plaine Products, are on a mission to make style sustainable once and for all.

“For 10 years, I lived in the the Bahamas. While I loved living there, it wasn’t all rum drinks on the beach,” Delaplaine McCoy explains. “On a small island, there’s no first world infrastructure to insulate you from the piles of plastic we are creating. You see plastic on the beaches, in the water, spilling out of the landfills, along the side of the road.”

She says there’s even a place called “Junk Beach” in the Bahamas that’s full of trash, most of which is plastic waste. “The message that plastic lasts forever, no matter how long we use it, is much more obvious living there than it is here,” Delaplaine McCoy says.

Sisters and Founders of Plaine Products Lindsey Delaplaine McCoy and Alison Delaplaine Webster

“Once you start to notice,” Delaplaine McCoy explains. “You realize that single use plastic is everywhere. I was intrigued to be able to provide one solution to the problem. Plastic to me is one of those issues, unlike so many others we face that we can solve, and we can buy less of it.”

Since most shampoos, conditioners and body washes come in plastic containers (more than 550 million shampoo bottles end up in landfills every year, to be exact), that’s where the sisters decided to start. They launched Plaine Products, Cincinnati-based company that makes natural shampoo, conditioner and body wash in reusable, returnable, refillable aluminum containers.

“We’re proud to be based in Cincinnati. Both of our parents and all four of our grandparents were born here,” Delaplaine McCoy says. “Even though we’ve lived in other places, Cincinnati is definitely home.”

It works with a three-step process:

1) Order products and they arrive at your door in a refillable bottle.

2) When you’re getting low, order a refill bottle, or subscribe and they’ll send a bottle in a timeframe that works for you.

3) When your refill comes, put your empty bottle in that box, put on the enclosed return label (they cover the cost of shipping to send it back!), and set it out for your postal carrier to pick up.

Plaine Products sells environmentally friendly products in aluminum bottles.

“As far we know, we are the only company that pays for you to send your bottles back to be cleaned, refilled and reused,” Delaplaine McCoy explains. “Once the bottles have gone through several cycles, we’ll send them off to be recycled. The nice thing about aluminum as opposed to plastic, is that when it’s recycled, there’s no loss in quality; It just turns right back into more aluminum.”

But a reusable and recyclable container isn’t the only reason why Plaine Products is eco-friendly. Their products are are made from all natural ingredients, which are carefully selected from nature’s most nutrient- and vitamin-rich plants, minerals, and renewable sources. They’re vegan, sulfate-free, cruelty-free, biodegradable, kid-safe and color-safe. Plus, they’re blended and manufactured in Florida, specifically for Plaine Products.

“Plaine Products is a play on our maiden name of Delaplaine,” Delaplaine McCoy says, “although with our goal of keeping our products and our process as simple as possible.”

An a la carte shampoo, conditioner or body wash are $30 for a 16oz bottle. They have bundle discounts, such as $80 for a set of the three products, and they also offer a 20 percent discount to sign up on their website.

We all have bad hair days from time to time, but most of us pull a baseball cap on or avoid class for the day. One student, however, had a seriously bad hair day after her hair extensions left her looking like a burn victim.

Confidence Boosting Hair Extensions

Holly Jane had some blonde hair extensions put in by a local hairdresser. The hair extensions were a gift from her mother to help her feel more confident, but Holly, who suffers from anxiety, ended up feeling a whole lot worse when the hair extensions matted up and started to fall out.

Holly told reporters that two of the expensive clumps of hair had fallen out within a week. She contacted the hairdresser who told her to leave the extensions alone and everything would be fine. Unfortunately, Holly’s hair went from bad to worse and before long, her hair began to matt up, so her mother was forced to cut the hair out.

Extreme Reaction

Now, Holly has been left with short hair and bald patches and clotted lumps of hair. Holly and her mom say they contacted the hairdresser and asked her to fix the problem, but she refused to help. She told Holly to use Argan oil to repair her hair, but Holly says that just made her scalp worse.

With her hair falling out in clumps and her confidence in tatters, Holly and her mom posted about the incident on social media. The story went viral and the hairdresser had to remove her Facebook business page after receiving threats. The woman denied all responsibility when interviewed by reporters. She said it was Holly’s fault for not looking after her hair extensions correctly, but Holly claims she wasn’t given any advice and nor was her scalp checked for allergy sensitivity.

Adderall Causes Hair Loss in Students

Hair loss is no joke, although Scalp Med can help. There are many causes of hair loss in older people, but in students, hair loss is usually the result of stress, a poor diet, and Adderall abuse.

Many students take Adderall to boost their concentration during exams. Doctors normally prescribe Adderall to patients diagnosed with ADHD, but it has become an increasingly popular drug of choice for stressed students. Many students claim on public forums that Adderall helps them stay up all night studying for exams. They also claim it makes them smarter and better able to cope with their studies. In fact, a recent study carried out by the Bloomberg School of Public Health found that 60% of Adderall users were aged 18-25. What most of these students don’t know is that hair loss is one of the side effects of taking Adderall.

The other main cause of hair loss in students is stress. Extreme stress, which is common during exams, can trigger an autoimmune disorder, which causes patchy hair loss. In most cases, the hair grows back, but in a few cases, the alopecia can spread and affect the whole scalp.

If hair loss is affecting you, it is important to seek medical advice, and if you suspect Adderall abuse is the cause, stop taking it immediately.

There always seems to be some amount of controversy over whether or not what we are seeing on television and on the Big Screen is actually good for us, but if you look closely, you will see that movies do have a positive effect on our lives in many cases. Yes, there are some cult flicks that lead the unsuspecting astray by glorifying violence, drugs and sex, but for the most part, the really great flicks of our time have had a positive impact on 21st Century living. Here are just five examples of how movies impact our lives in ways you might never suspect.

1) Breaking through Stereotypes

If ever there was a hunky leading man it would be Johnny Depp. Adored by women around the world, Johnny has become one of the most sought after stars of our day. If you think back to the days of Clint Eastwood and John Wayne, you’ll remember that practically every leading man, at one point or another, had a cigarette hanging from his mouth. Even the commercials glorified smoking and any ‘manly man’ would do at least one flick in which he smoked. Johnny Depp, in The Tourist, meets Angelina Jolie on a train and what is he doing when she walks up? Vaping! While this may not have led millions of people to go out and buy box mod vapes, it certainly did a lot to bring forward an image of a sexy man vaping in lieu of smoking. A great stereotype to break away from, for sure!

2) Bridging Cross-Cultural Boundaries

Altogether too often we are unable to see other cultures with the same amount of acceptance as our own. Without naming any one particular film, as there are so many, it’s easy to see how all those indies that are so popular these days have had a huge impact on bridging that cross-cultural gap. Some are subtitled and some are in English, but many are filmed in developing nations, giving us a better acceptance of cultures so dissimilar yet similar to ours.

3) Addressing Geopolitical Concerns

On the same token, those indies are often a way to address geopolitical concerns. While Hollywood may not want to take on yet another movie about espionage in Iraq or avoiding nuclear war with Russia, indies are great for addressing these concerns. Many seek to highlight the rampant pillaging of natural resources while others give us a deeper view of the plight of others in third world countries. Perhaps one of the greatest films of our times that gives us a better look at global geopolitical concerns due to militant warfare would be the box office hit and award winning Hotel Rwanda.

4) Greater Tolerance for Alternative Lifestyles

Then there’s Brokeback Mountain, perhaps the first and greatest film to bring an alternative lifestyle to the Big Screen. As a neo western, this film depicted two cowboys who would traditionally have been the rugged ladies’ men but in this film they are star crossed gay lovers, bringing to light an alternative worldview and perhaps one of the biggest ‘advocates’ for gay and lesbian lifestyles. There was a huge amount of controversy at the time, 2005, but this one flick will go down in history as being a prelude to greater acceptance in our culture.

5) That’s Entertainment!

And finally, movies are simply entertaining. With all of the problems life throws at you day after day, it’s nice to get away from it all, even if only for a couple hours. Movies help you relax and unwind and comedies do much to repair broken spirits. Sometimes we just need a good laugh or to immerse ourselves into the life of others, however fictional, to get away from all the struggles we face on a day to day basis. Life can be hard and films help to transport us away from all those worries that get us down. What better way than to forget your own woes than by facing the troubles of others. Your problems aren’t so bad after all, are they?

There are countless other ways in which movies impact our lives, but these are just five examples of why this is a multibillion dollar industry year after year. Yes, it may be a bit costly to pay for a ticket at your local theater but the benefits to be gained by getting away from it all just might be money well spent. While you may not always be happy with the impact movies have on our lives and those of our children, the one thing everyone can agree on is that they definitely do impact our lives.

Wine comes in an array of varietals, flavors, and colors. It’s becoming more and more the drink of choice for women, so we ask, is wine a girl’s best friend? Certainly yes, we say, and here are our three top reasons why:

It can boost your business

Traditionally, the golf course is where many business people strike deals and where connections are made. Now, career experts say that women are making their business connections over wine more than ever. It’s a great way to spark a new conversation and find common ground even with the most buttoned up client. It’s also important to show a breadth of knowledge and passion that can spark new curiosity and creativity. So, knowing the difference between a pinot noir and a pinot grigio may make a difference in your glass as well as the glass ceiling at work. 

It offers many health benefits

Recent research says wine drinkers have a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or spirits drinkers. More specifically, moderate drinkers suffering from high blood pressure are 30 percent less likely to have a heart attack than nondrinkers. Why? Experts say red wine tannins contain procyanidins, which protect against heart disease. So, you don’t always have to fight heart disease at the gym! You can fight it sippin’ on some red wine, from the comfort of your couch, trying your luck at Red Flush online casino if you want! Also, moderate consumption of wine (especially red) cuts the risk of colon cancer by 45 percent. It also helps the brain, as researchers found that brain function declines at a markedly faster rate in nondrinkers than in moderate drinkers. It’s important to note that these health benefits come from moderate wine consumption, defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses a day. 

And finally, as they say, “in vino veritas.”

This is a Latin phrase that means “in wine, truth”, suggesting a person is more likely to speak their mind after wine is introduced into the equation. Alcohol is life’s social lubricant and sometimes it’s the little boost of confidence you need to let down your guard and speak the truth. Or, in the business world, it might be just what a client needs to open up about what their real goals are for a project, or even what’s secretly coming down the pipeline from corporate that you otherwise might not know about. There’s nothing like a cocktail or two to unlock the jaws of even the most tight lipped client.Also, as a service provider, it’s part of the job to always have answers and be strong in front of the clients, but being vulnerable shifts the power dynamic and creates sympathy and empathy. Same goes for friends. If you’ve been meaning to tell your best friend something, but can’t find the words. Invite her to a glass of wine and see if it’s easier to say after a few sips.

Women have been suffering from hair loss as far back as they can remember, but it’s only been in the last few years that it has become more mainstream as far as talking about it and dealing with it. It has always been seen as an issue that affects men physically and mentally, and it’s only now that the medical community and society as a whole understands that it affects women just as deeply.

For a woman who is suffering from hair loss, there is always a quest to find answers and solutions. Is it possible to slow down or, better yet, reverse hair loss in women? Let’s take a closer look.

The Best Answer is Prevention

Unfortunately, when it comes to slowing down or reversing hair loss in women, there is no sure fire solution. There are a number of hair loss products on the market today, with some pretty impressive results, but one simply can’t guarantee that every single woman will enjoy the same results. With that said, professionals always say that prevention is the best answer.

Hair loss can be caused by all kinds of different things, many of which are out of the woman’s control, however some can be controlled and at least minimized. For example, dramatic weight loss and stress can both cause hair loss in women. By cutting back on each of these issues, the woman may be able to prevent hair loss altogether.

Treatment Options

For women who can’t control the situation and prevent hair loss from occurring, it’s best to look into the variety of hair growth products for women. Your doctor will be able to talk with you about various products that you can purchase that can stimulate new hair growth. Many of these are in a shampoo-type formula so they are very easy to use.

Diet has also been shown to play a huge part in hair loss. Did you know that by increasing your intake of vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and protein that you can be helping your hair to really thrive? Ideally, you want to get these items through food, but if not you can always take a supplement.

For women who love to use hot tools to style your hair, it’s time to put those tools away and let your hair go au natural. There is nothing more damaging to your hair than a blow dryer, straight iron, and curling iron. Each of these ends up causing breakage, which will make your hair appear even thinner.

Stress is another big factor in hair loss, so it can be extremely beneficial to find ways to relax and unwind.

A final tip is to start massaging your head each time you wash your hair. Spend time to actually rub your scalp and really let your shampoo do its job. Massage will also work to improve the blood flow in your scalp, which can help.

There is Help Available

While there is no one-size fits all solution that will work for every woman out there, you’ll find that there are a variety of treatment options that can at least slow down a person’s hair loss.

This local, female-focused accelerator program is ready for take-off with some exciting new changes. Keep reading for all the high-flying details.

 

Bad Girl Ventures is now known as Aviatra Accelerators.

Aviatra Accelerators, formerly known as Bad Girl Ventures, decided to roll with change, not be scared of it.

No longer just specified to one type of woman, this company has grown into an established organization with a larger overall mission to help all women entrepreneurs, according to president and CEO of Aviatra Accelerators, Nancy Aichholz.

Changing a brand’s name may seem simple, but along with that comes an entire rebranding process. In this case, the rebranding process began at Northern Kentucky University, where all aspects of the company were broken down and looked into. Aichholz and her team knew at this point where the company could go, and knew the best way to begin that process was through a name change and rebranding.

There are many steps of rebranding. The first and most important step Aichholz was the name change. “Changing the name to a more mature, professional name would meet the woman where she is and stay ahead of her and be a more substantial player in the ecosystem of start up businesses,” says Aichholz.

After looking at the bigger picture at NKU, the company reached out to the Lindner Women in Business at the University of Cincinnati to undertake quantitative research regarding the best way to change the brand name.

Before the name change, people didn’t know what Bad Girl Ventures was all about. “If someone didn’t already know who we were and what we were doing, then they weren’t sure what our organization was,” says Aichholz.

After research at UC came research at a branding firm called Hyperquake, who used marketing research to find a name that would reflect the future of the brand. The solution they came up with? A female pilot, otherwise known as an Aviatrix. The company was drawn to this because of the empowerment that was associated with female pilots. In photos, the women had pride in their faces, standing tall and proud, with their eyes full of passion. That is what the company wanted to embody moving forward: confidence, passion, strength, and drive.

“It was time to take on a different look and give the organization a refresh. This new rebrand will help us attract new clients, potentially new markets, and will encapsulate who we are as an organization and what we provide to the women who are growing their businesses,” says Karen Finan, board chair of Aviatra Accelerators.

Realizing when change needs to happen is an important intuition to have, and after seven years, Bad Girl Ventures remolded to meet the needs of their new clientele.

“Our mission has not changed. Our mission has always been to empower female entrepreneurs; we just need to do it differently now than we did in the past because the woman has changed. The ecosystem has changed. The word “ventures” in our old name was just a part of what we do, but we do so much more,” explains Aichholz.

Falling under that “much more” is Avaitra Accelerator’s new Greater Cincinnati 2017 LAUNCH Class taking place this spring. The LAUNCH class is for female entrepreneurs and business owners who already operate a viable, well-vetted business with an established revenue stream and customer base. Those who participate in LAUNCH seek capital to push their businesses forward because at the end of the LAUNCH stage, each business has the opportunity to compete for up to $25,000 low interest loan from Aviatra Accelerators.

The five entrepreneurs who were chosen to participate this spring are the following:

Black Career Women’s Network. This is a national network that is dedicated to the professional development of African American women by providing numerous tools and communities for their disposal.

Allie’s Walkabout. This is a dog care facility that offers clients doggy daycare, boarding, grooming, and training in a stress free, playful environment.

Core Strong. This unique gym that offers members the chance to improve their mental and physical strength without the distractions of a typical gym setting, located in Covington, Kentucky.

The Healing Kitchen. This company uses the Findlay Market Incubator Kitchen to produce made-from-scratch food using only the best, healthy ingredients from local farmers.

Your Stylist, LLC. Created by Jackie Neville, this company offers personal styling and wardrobe services, assisting individuals to help them look and feel their best.

The LAUNCH class is currently held for these entrepreneurs every Wednesday night from 6-9pm at the Aviatra Accelerators office located at 114 West Pike Street, Covington, KY. For more information about Aviatra Accelerators, click here or here.

Stress affects an alarming number of people in the UK and figures show that 488,000 cases of work-related stress were reported between 2015-2016. With figures like this, it is clear that there is a significant problem affecting a large section of the population. The NHS has a very good support system that can help you if you suffer from stress, so always seek your doctor’s advice if you are starting to feel any signs of stress.

 

To identify the difference between feeling a bit blue and developing stress, the following definition is provided by the Oxford dictionary for stress: “A state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances.”

 

Stress can have many different symptoms and various causes. Symptoms include insomnia, headaches, upset stomach, the lack of energy, high blood pressure and loss of sexual desire, amongst many others.

 

Causes of stress are commonly associated with work demands and unhappiness in a person’s career. If you suffer from work-related stress than you are certainly not alone. There are a number of solutions that you can look at depending on your circumstances. Maybe you are ready for a well-earned break if you have been working hard without any time off. You should try and take breaks while in work; don’t work through your lunch, try and take a walk to clear your head. You might be surprised at how effective this can be.

 

If you are overcome with the responsibilities of your role then maybe you can talk to your manager about it. It might be that they are unaware of some additional responsibilities that you have taken on or they might be able to help you to find more efficient ways of doing things. If your manager isn’t helpful or isn’t available, then you can always speak to your HR department or any advice lines that your company provides.

 

Stress can also be caused by money problems and if you are struggling with debts then you should seek advice through support networks like Citizens Advice or debt charities. They may be able to help you find a solution and relieve some of the stress that you are feeling.

 

Common ways to reduce stress levels include exercising more, as the release of endorphins will bring a feeling of euphoria. If you are not a fan of exercise then maybe you could try and make into a social event; join a class where you get to meet new people and enjoy their company.

 

Other more controversial methods of coping with stress include the use of marijuana in some places around the world. In the United States you can speak to companies that provide services for the dispensing of marijuana such as https://www.dispensaries.com/extractors.

 

If you are struggling with stress, then you should take immediate action, as it will only build up the longer that you try and bury your head in the sand. Seek help today and make your first step on your way to life with limited stress.
