LEAP Of Faith

Home, Food & Body, The Dressing Room

Today is the day ladies 😉

According to tradition, being a leap year and all, today is the day ladies do the proposing!

You only get this opportunity once every 4 years, so get down on bended knee and pop the question.

If your not looking at being that serious, you could have a little fun with it and see how your man reacts 😉

Good Luck

Milan Fashion Week

Fashion, The Dressing Room

Milan Fashion Week presented elegance and poise with a sense of mystery and darkness.

It was also the stage for activists who blocked the entrance to the House of Versace

in Milan 5 minutes before the show, chanting “Fashion fascism”.

On a positive note one of our fav’s was the Bottega Veneta runway show!

Rain, rain, go away! Come again another day!

Some that does excite us (definitely NOT the rain) are NEW ARRIVALS!

She has chosen mustard to accessorise wearing the PLAIT & METAL organic choker.

The choice of a bright lippy pops against the earthy tones Maria is wearing.

Master Your Metabolism

Home, Food & Body

3 ways to feel great and get that metabolism pumping!

1. Boost metabolism every three hours with a “Power 3” plate.
One of the best ways to keep your metabolism working is to eat a small meal every three hours. The plate should have three small portions: one protein, one carbohydrate or fat, and unlimited vegetables. Small, frequent meals keep things moving; the simple act of eating stimulates your metabolism by triggering digestion. Every time your body digests food, it ramps up your total metabolic rate.

2. Turn up your metabolic thermostat.
Your thyroid acts as a metabolic thermostat. It releases hormones that play a major role in controlling your body’s temperature and the rate that your body burns calories. When your thyroid is working at its max, your metabolism will be sky-high. If your thyroid’s function is impaired, the metabolic rate slows down and leads to weight gain. The key to keeping your thyroid working hard is in eating good carbs, like whole grains, root vegetables and beans. Believe it or not, studies have shown that cutting out carbs from your diet completely can reduce thyroid function by 50 percent. So, make sure to keep complex carbs in your diet.

3. Build your metabolic muscle.
The number-one consumer of calories in your body is muscle. The more muscle mass you have, the more your body works toward burning calories—even when you’re asleep. It’s extremely important to maintain muscle during any weight-loss endeavor. A great way to build muscle is by doing cardio with light weights. This will keep your heart rate up while sculpting your body to be more lean and muscular

It is that time of year where we slowly start transitioning from

bright bold summery colours to deep, earthy winter tones.

Whilst the chill has not come our way yet, we are happy to strip back some of the new arrivals

and save the layering for when the cold does come.
