Off the Shoulder Fashion is rockin

Everywhere I turn I’m seeing off the shoulder fashion in different forms . You see dresses and tops and even jumpsuits. The look is taking over this year, and I can see why. You can turn a dress from classy to edgy in no time. It takes a change of shoes and a few accessories. The best look this year is the cute tops with bow ties on the arms. Those are adorable. 

It doesn’t take an army to look great in one of these styles. You see this style for a night out to dinner or even a casual lunch. I know that some women think, ” I could never wear that, or ” I’m too old for that. I’m here to tell you , “NO your not. You see the likes of the gorgeous Helen Mirran and Susan Sarandon wearing these gorgeous styles. This style is meant for all ages. A great look to add to this is some amazing long earrings with a great updo. Its time to bring out the inner diva, no matter what age you are, and dress it up for the night! Your never too old for fashion. It lives on and on for everyone!

Ways to Maximize your Weight loss with Walking

Running may be the star of the Cardio workout, but Walking can benefit your weight loss just as much. Fast-paced walking combined with a healthy diet has shown to help with quick weight loss. Studies have shown that 3 ( 30 minute fast paced walks a week ) have increased weight loss by 50 percent. Slow strolling of course will help with slower weight loss, but adding these tips to your weekly walks, will not only help with weight loss, but help with toning your body. 30 Minutes of high-speed walking burns approximately 220 calories, at the right speed. Maintaining a high power walk will get you there. Make sure you keep your posture in line so you don’t strain your neck. Contracting your abs when you walk will only help tone that belly. It’s a bit like contracting your abs in a plank position, but only your walking. I advise to NOT use dumbbells when walking. They can strain the shoulder ligaments, and tendons. Swinging the arms is just as good for toning. Making the most of your walks is the key to weight loss. It’s a great idea to try to add hills on your walks, and take longer strides. This helps drive your forward , building your upper strength and can increase calorie burn by 10 percent. Try to start off  with a good pair of walking shoes that have good traction. If they don’t, you will start wearing your feet down. Are you a runner? Try to add intervals to your walks. Short Sprints along with your walking will increase calorie burn. Increasing your walking time will also do double duty to your calorie burn. Get moving today ! walking does the body good
