A Clippy Salute

Happy Memorial Day! Today, we salute the noble men and women who have given their all in the service of our nation.

So hats off to all our heroes. Here's a little Clippy salute that we wholeheartedly give to you: our Liberty Clippy!


Some fun facts about Memorial Day:

Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day. It commemorates American men and women who died while in the military service. Traditionally, people observe this holiday by visiting cemeteries and memorials to pay homage to our country's heroes. There are also national celebrations, where people gather together with flags of the United States of America in a parade to honor fallen heroes.

Apart from these, some people also love to go on picnics and have barbecues among family and close friends. So for this week, I'll be posting great ideas for gatherings and fun activities that you can share with the kiddos! Plus, let's not forget that with this holiday, we officially mark the beginning of summer!

Ponder, ponder, ponder...
How do you celebrate Memorial Day? Any special traditions that you observe in your family?

Cheerios!

The Best Swimsuits for Your Body Part 2 (Oh and Accessories to Match!)

To finish off our week of prepping you for summer, here's the second part of our guide to the best swimsuits for your body type! All thanks to our friends at StyleBakery.com :o)

FOR LARGE BUSTS AND PLUS SIZES
Best Swimsuits for Large Busts Look For:
* Underwire tops, formed cups and wider bands under the bustline that provide the extra support you need.

* One-piece swimsuits with some structure in the bust, such as soft foam cups or a shelf bra.

* Halter-top bikinis offer support while providing some great cleavage too. Look for styles that are banded under the bustline and can be tied in back and around the neck to allow you to make adjustments.

Avoid
* Strapless bandeau tops and those tiny, triangle tops that offer minimal coverage.

Best Swim Suits for Plus Sizes
Look For:
* Deep v-necks, well-placed cutouts, lace or mesh inserts - showing a little skin in the right places can be a sexy and flattering visual.

* Lengthen your thigh with swimsuits that have a high cut leg or adjustable ruching detail at the hip.

* Don't be afraid of prints and patterns, these can help camouflage lumps and bumps.

Avoid
* Too much fabric and boy short styles. Stay away from white, as well as bright fabrics.

More info here!

Of course, you MUST top all this off with the right hair accessories! And we have just the thing for you. You can never go wrong with a little touch of flowers. They celebrate your femininity and gives your look just the right "Oomph!"

The Best Swimsuits for Your Body Part 1

Summer will not be summer without some sauntering out in the sun. And you wouldn't want to do anything out in the merciless heat while you're all covered up! So here are tips to find the best swimsuits for your body type, as rounded out by our friends at StyleBakery.com.

Now, now, don't be shy. We're all here to make you look and feel your best!

FOR SMALL BUSTS AND STRAIGHT FIGURES

Best Bust-Enhancing Swimsuits

Look for:
* Tops with a touch of padding, or an underwire demi-bra style that makes the most for adding to your small bustline.

* You have the body to wear cute, ruffled tops that are hot right now. Triangle tops and bandeau tops are easy to wear as well.

Avoid:
* Tops with too much fabric or that have poor fit.

Best Curve-creating Swim Styles

Look For:
* If you don't have many curves, choose a swimsuit that has a belted waist to help create one. Or choose a one-piece suit with a high-on-the-thigh cut.

* A one-piece swimsuit with side cut-outs instantly creates a few curves at the waist and hips.

* Bikinis are also a good choice. Add some details at the hips with rings, ruffles and bows.

More info here!

FOR PEAR SHAPES AND TUMMY BULGES

Best Swim Styles for Pear Shapes

Look for:
* Swimsuits that draw attention upwards with interesting details and patterns above the waist. To balance your proportions, choose a solid bottom and a patterned top.

* Mini-skirted bikini bottoms are made just for you! Skip the super frilly ones and choose a skimming, smooth skirt that covers just what you need it to.

* Opt for a bikini bottom that has slightly wider sides, skip the string side-tie versions that only draw unwanted attention.

* Play up your bust and shoulders to deemphasize your bottom.

Avoid:
* Boy shorts, skimpy bottoms, low cut bottoms or lots of ruffles and details at the hips.

Best Swim Styles for Tummy Bulges

Look For:
* Swimsuits with a little extra spandex woven into the tummy area, they work wonders!

* A one-piece with ruching or draping around the waist or hips can also help to conceal a "muffin" top.

* If you're going for a two-piece swimsuit, then opt for a loose fitting tankini where top and bottom meet at the waist. They cover just enough, but you still have the freedom and chic factor of a bikini. High waisted bikini bottoms can help trim tummies

* Geometric and floral prints can help camouflage trouble areas.

Avoid
* Teeny bikinis and short tankini tops that ride up and expose belly rolls

Let's Get Physical

And now, for some exercise.

Oh come on, you should have seen this coming! It's a simple routine, so don't worry. We're concerned about your health, though, so remember to ask your doctor/physician if you're in the right condition to do physical activities like the ones we're featuring today!

If yo want to tone up your body, our friends at FitSugar.com has rounded up eight simple routines that will have your arms, core, back, tush and thighs burning by the end.

If you're sure you're up for some action, head over to their Head-to-Toe Strength Training Routine here!

A sneak peek:


Wide Squat and Biceps Curls

This multitasking move will target your thighs and biceps at the same time:

  • Hold a pair of dumbbells in your hands with your arms straight and your palms facing away from you. Step your feet apart so there's about 20 inches between your heels. Point your toes out slightly.
  • When you're ready, bend your knees and elbows. Keep your shoulders over your hips and lower down so your weight is back in your heels. Then straighten your legs and arms.
  • This is one repetition. Complete three sets of 12 to 15 reps.

Healthy Grillin'

We've been feasting on some serious meat this week, so we decided to go healthy this time! As our last installment of our best grillin' recipes, we want this to be extra special: salmon! While strictly speaking, it's not a barbecue dish, it still makes for some scrumptious (and healthy) grilled feast.

GRILLED SALMON
Serves 4


Ingredients:
2 pounds salmon fillets
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
4 green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
1. Place salmon in shallow dish. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Set aside 1/4 cup for basting; pour the rest over the salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain, discarding marinade.

2. Grill salmon over medium coals, skin side down, for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste occasionally with reserved marinade.

Star Mommas

Mother's Day has come and gone, but who says we should stop celebrating these wonderful women? Even Hollywood's biggest names aren't shy in showing the public the close relationship they have with their moms.

Celebrity Baby Scoop gives us a rundown of celebrities who are close to their moms. Gotta love these mother-daughter duos:


Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow grew up in a Hollywood household—her dad, Bruce Paltrow, was a well-known director; mom Blythe Danner is an Emmy award-winning actress—so it's no wonder Gwyneth became an Academy Award-winning movie star.

Gwyneth and Blythe have acted together once, in the British film Sylvia. The mother-daughter duo are set to share the Broadway stage in the musical A Little Night Music. The gorgeous pair will replace Chicago alum Catherine Zeta-Jones and acting vet Angela Lansbury, 84, as the leading actresses in the production.

Blythe has given her daughter some great career advice:

"She told me not to let all the outside stuff in the business permeate my life and to stay above the fray. None of us read anything written about us—we don’t even read the reviews. You try to stay as true to the work as you can and let the other stuff just wash over you.”

Gwyneth said her mother was her rock after her father's sudden death in 2002:

"My mom was great. We flew down to New Zealand together, which was really lovely. You know, it was just comforting to be together, to eat our meals together and to work together.”

Grandma Blythe recently said that being grandma to Apple, 6 next Friday, and Moses, 4, is “phenomenal,” and she would “love it” if more grandchildren were on the way. The 67-year-old actress raved about her daughter's mothering skills:

"Gwyneth really invests herself in an unusual way. She’s incredibly patient. She spends a lot of time with them. She answers everything. She anticipates. She never surprises them. They’re well-prepared for all the travel and all the things that go on. They’re very happy kids.”

Happy Grillin' Part 2

We promised our best barbecue recipes for you this week, in celebration of the National Barbecue Month, and we will not disappoint!

If you loved our baby back ribs last time, you should definitely also try out this pork chops recipe from allrecipes.com! So simple to do, yet so scrumptious. Some even say, they taste like steak! Go give it a try and see (and taste) for yourself:

GRILLED LEMON HERB PORK CHOPS
Serves 6


Ingredients:
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 (4 ounce) boneless pork loin chops

Directions:
1. In a large resealable bag, combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt, oregano, and pepper. Place chops in bag, seal, and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight. Turn bag frequently to distribute marinade.

2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Remove chops from bag, and transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan. Bring marinade to a boil, remove from heat, and set aside.

3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill pork chops for 5 to 7 minutes per side, basting frequently with boiled marinade, until done.

Happy Grillin'

It's National Barbecue Month this month! And that means you better get those grillers out because there's no better time for some barbecue than at that perfect moment before the hottest season kicks in. (I don't know about you, but standing in front of burning coals on a sizzling Summer day doesn't make me a happy camper!)

So this week, we're giving you all our favorite barbecue recipes for you to enjoy with your family! Enjoy the remnants of Spring by having a get-together with your friends and loved ones. Then feast on some scrumptious barbecues. Here's one from allrecipes.com:

HOOT N HOLLER BABY BACK PORK RIBS
Serves 6


Ingredients:
2 racks baby back pork ribs (about 1 1/2 lbs per rack)
1 (12 ounce) jar of mesquite-flavored marinade
3 bay leaves
1 whole medium onion, peeled
1 cup prepared barbecue sauce (mild or spicy)
1/2 cup brown sugar

Directions:
1. In a large stockpot, place both racks of ribs; add enough water to cover ribs. Add marinade, bay leaves and onion. Bring mixture to a boil over high heat. (This will create foam on top.) Reduce to medium-low heat; simmer 45 minutes or until ribs are just tender. Remove ribs from cooking liquid; drain on rimmed baking sheet. Heat grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees F.)

2. Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, stir together the barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Brush over both sides of ribs. Place ribs on grill, bone side down, close lid. Grill for 7 minutes, turn and grill 7 minutes more.

Of course, when you have guests coming over, make sure your little girl is dressed to impressed ;) And we, as always, have just the thing for you. Here's a cute one and is one of our favorites, perfect for a fun day with family and friends:

Happy grillin' everyone!

Top 5 Wardrobe Essentials

Women's fashion is undeniably a LOT more complicated than men's. Or at least I've always thought so. I mean, how complicated could shirt and pants get? Get a decent pair of slacks and a crisp polo shirt and you're basically all set (plus shoes, of course). With women... where do you even start?!

Blouse or polo or shirt or tank top?
Pants or jeans or skirt?
Then if it's a skirt: A-line or high-waist or balloon?
Not to mention the accessories!

This is not to bash the men, of course. I'm just saying that with women's wear, there's just too many choices you have to make! Particularly with-ahem-style challenged people like me, it's hard even to think of building a decent wardrobe.

Good thing I crashed in StyleBakery.com because the lovely folks there compiled the top 5 wardrobe essentials that they say "every woman should own." Consider it a "starter kit" then you build your wardrobe from there!

Here's two items they mentioned:

CARDIGAN
Take a note from Michelle Obama, and find your best fitting cardigan to pair with jeans, skirts, and dresses. A great piece to keep in your desk when the chill is on blast.

SPECIAL FLAT SANDAL
Ideal for the urban city dweller, green commuter and mom on the go, a flat snadal with unique detailig like beads, bold colors or stones is a great and chic alternative to sneakers.

Five Body Parts You Never Heard Of

Did you know? There are certain parts of your body that you see everyday but you may have no idea what they're called! Bella Sugar reveals five beauty-related body parts you probably never heard of until now!

5 BODY PARTS YOU DIDN'T KNOW EXISTED

Philtrum

Definition
: The vertical ridge that lies from your nose to your upper lip.
Usage
: By patting on a little bit of concealer in the philtrum, it "gives the illusion of two perfect peaks without having to go through the trouble of lining lips," according to Shu Uemura's Gina Brooke.

Canthus

Definition: The corners on either side of the eye, right where the upper and lower lids come together.
Usage
: Use a pinkish concealer... around the canthi for a brightening pick-me-up.

Eponychium

Definition: Another way to say cuticle — as in fingernails, not hair.
Usage
: To keep polish off your cuticles, just place the polish wand's brush a tiny bit away from your eponychia to start. Then, give the brush a small push forward and finish off by stroking back up toward the free edge. VoilĂ ! The polish stays on your nails, and not your skin.

Bang Bang!


I've always thought bangs are cute. So I had my hair cut to have bangs on them. Then it turns out my forehead doesn't think they're so cute after all. My skin is too picky with my hair styles, I tell you. Somehow, it abhors any contact with my hair! One wrong move and boom: major breakouts. The breakout that developed quickly on my forehead was a pretty clear sign to me that it's time to do some damage control. But then there's not much I can do but to wait for the bangs to grow out. And boy, do they take time to grow out...

If you're having trouble growing out your bangs too, here are four tips from Teen Vogue to help you (and hopefully, me):

#1 Pin Em' Back!
Brush the bangs back toward the back of your head. Then, push them forward so they pouf up a bit and bobby pin at the crown. Swipe on pomade or gel to smooth flyaways.

#2 Do the twist!
Pull your bangs up, give them a twist, pin to one side and spritz with spray!

#3 The split and tuck
Part damp hair down the middle, coaxing your bangs away from your face. Draw back on each side bobby pin about two inches from your forehead then just slide the rest of the hair over the telltale pins. It's a clever little trick!

#4 Sweep them up and away.
Work gel into damp hair and blow dry it straight back. Comb hair into a low ponytail, pin, mist hairspray to keep them blended.

More handy hints in Teen Vogue's site. Visit their site here!

Memories with Mom




"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts." (Washington Irving)

There's nothing quite like the relationship a girl has with her mother. It's a unique bond between two girls, from two different generations. One the master, the other an apprentice; one the gardener, the other a tiny bud; one the potter, the other the clay.

Our mothers are both in front of us to lead the way and beside us to support us. And every now and then, they also run behind us to catch us when we fall, dust us off and kiss our boo-boos away.

I don't know what your relationship with your mom is right now--hopefully, it's good and strong. As for me, it's a bit embarrassing to admit this but I have always been a "fan" of my mom. Seriously! I've always looked up to her and sought her opinion on everything. I hold on to her every word and to this day, I've been trying to emulate that brilliant, headstrong spirit she has.

Although I cherish my mom each day of the year, this month is extra special because we're celebrating all mothers around the world!

There are too many great memories that I've shared with my mom, but one of the many that stands out is during my graduation march. She and my dad were seated quite a distance from the graduates. So she just sent a message through my phone. She said: "You never cease to make us so proud of you." And that just made my heart swell! Even more than the medal or the diploma or the sheer joy of graduating!

How about you? What are some of the best memories that you have with your mom? Or as a mom, what are your best memories with your little ones?

I wish all you lovely mothers a Happy Mothers' Day!

PS A Mom and Me promo is in the works! Hint: how does a buy one, get one sound to you? Stay tuned!

Mommy Hairstyles

Moms, just because you have arguably the hardest, messiest job in the world (kudos to you), doesn't mean you have to look it! Being a mother has its ups and downs, and a lot of women get so wrapped up in it that they forget to take a little more care of themselves sometimes too!

Here's a little pick-me-up: a simple update in your hairstyle from Lil Sugar.

BRAIDS
Easy and stylish, side-swept braids... keep hair out of a mama's face and under control when she's out with her kids. To change up the style, consider weaving a scarf into the braid.

PONYTAILS
A staple for moms and their lil girls, the ponytail can be worked high, low, tight, or loose for various looks. A stacked ponytail looks pretty chic, while a loose and messy one adds some hipster glam to a mama's look.

Image from www.ponytailhairstyles.blogspot.com

BUNS
A bun doesn't have to look like you stepped right out of a ballet studio. Low, quirky buns look like mama put some effort into her locks, without being overdone.

HEADBANDS

Headbands can hide a host of sins, most importantly the wisps that come with postpartum hair loss.

Model is wearing a No Slippy Hair Clippy Large 5-inch Silk Flower on Wide Organic Cotton Headwrap.

A Day for Mama

You rarely ever meet anyone else in all your life who would love you as much as your momma did. It's a shining example of unconditional love--how she would accept you despite of you, without fail and almost to a fault. This month, why not celebrate your mother for all of May, and not just on one day?

Here are Baby Sugar's list of not-so-common Mother's Day Gift Ideas:

A Cleanup Fairy "I love playing with all of my kids' toys. I despise arguing with them over cleaning them up. Half of our battles would never exist if a cleanup fairy could suddenly appear to whisk them all away."

Photography Lessons "As the official photographer in our family, I try to get the perfect shot every time. Over the past four years, my family has gifted me with all of the necessary equipment, now I'd love learn how to properly use it, and take it off of the automatic settings."

A Stress- (and cleanup) free Family Dinner "The idea of a family dinner that doesn't include having to think up a menu, chasing kids around the table, mopping up spilled drinks, or rushing through the meal sounds positively divine."
