Fresh Summer '17 Jewellery Trends

Le 19 juillet 2017, 13:25 dans Humeurs 0

Want to know all the best Summer 2017 jewellery picks? Here are three items you need right now...

Small Necklaces

While there are some occasions that call for a big and bold statement, which is when you turn to a big, chunky jewelled necklace. These pieces have always been popular, and can be seen on the runway’s season after season. This spring, however, is more about elegant neck wear. A dainty and delicate necklace has the added bonus of being versatile – it can be worn straight from the office to the dancefloor.

It’s always a good idea to build up your collection of more dainty necklaces from independent designers, instead of buying cheaper costume jewellery. Take a look at brands like Thomas Sabo, or try a Gucci Necklace, who have some pretty pieces that not only look great but will last a lifetime.

BIG Hoops

This summer, it’s all about making a real statement with your earrings. Think huge hoops or extra-long-length danglers that will make your ears stand out. Experiment with textures and colours, as we’ve seen a number of designers embrace feathers and tassels in their designs this season.

Loads of Rings

The best way to wear your rings this season is by stacking them! There are so many styles out there at the moment, so there is really there’s no excuse for having boring hands! You can mix and match your fave styles and try out different metals to take full advantage of this fresh trend. Mix up a rose gold band, for example, with a chunky silver style, and look out for bright gemstones. Look out for some sterling silver varieties if you want an affordable choice that won’t turn your fingers green. Again, Gucci Rings are a fab choice.

To sum it up…

You should try and use the summer months are the perfect time to experiment with styles and make some daring statements with your jewellery choices. Even if you’re not a big jewellery girl, try and throw a few new pieces into your collections to mix things up a bit and make your outfits pop.

 

Three pairs of heels you need!

Le 17 juillet 2017, 17:01 dans Humeurs 0

So, you're headed out somewhere — a hot date, a wedding reception, drink with the girls — and you've got your outfit sorted. All you need is that final touch,  a good pair of heels, to complete your look. You try on option number one . . . nope, they don't go. You try on the next . . . nope, not those either. All of a sudden you're panicking, debating whether or not it's too late for a shopping trip...

That's where this article comes in. You can avoid any situation like this if you are prepared! Here are four pairs of heels that will keep you completely covered in the footwear department on all occasions... 

BLOCK HEEL SANDALS 

Get yourself one pair of heels that have a thicker, mid-height heel. They will give you more support, taking off some pressure and leaving your feet less sore when the night is through! Go for a nude colour, or a pastel pink or blue sandals, that you can wear with almost anything. 

BARELY THERE HEELS

Sleek, sexy and on trend all year around, your barely there heels will be your fave pair of shoes, 100%. I recommend a pair in black and white, to keep yourself covered. There is literally no outfit that these babies won't look fab with, so make sure you have a go-to pair. 

WEDGES

From your favourite pair of espadrilles to strappy sandals and must-have mules, wedges are the perfect summertime staple. Keep it casual with skinny jeans for a drink with the gals, or dress them up with a stylish midi dress for a hot date - you simply need a pair in your shoerobe.

To sum it up...

These three pairs will 100% keep your heel needs covered. Make sure you get a selection of colours - some dark, some more pale, so you can go from day to night.. 

 

Happy shopping!

 

 

 

Technologies That Can Change Home Healthcare for The Elderly

Le 29 juin 2017, 15:04 dans Humeurs 0

Technology is progressing every day, and healthcare technology and things that can improve the lives of the elderly are progressing with it. Here are some of the biggest healthcare technologies that are helping the elderly to regain some independence in their everyday routine!

GPS Technology:

GPS technology systems are tracking devices and satellite locators, and when being used as aids to the elderly, they allow family members, health workers and law enforcement professionals to track and locate seniors when they are away from home. This is great in the event of an emergency, where a senior is suffering from a mental health problem, memory loss or confusion and leaves the house unattended. GPS tracking is easily accessed through smartphone devices and applications and can, therefore, allow the user to be situated and helped in a speedy fashion. Technologies like sensors, GPS tracking systems and even senior-focused social networking sites often mean that seniors can live at home and maintain a level of independence.

The GrandCare System:

The GrandCare System is a residential home system that comes with several adaptable features. The system is a large tablet face with user-friendly touch-screen buttons, which provides the user with instructions, reminders, medication prompts, social communications with friends and family and even entertainment features. Family members can easily stay connected with their loved ones through the Care Portal, which allows them to exchange messages, and to access important information on things such as upcoming events, health indications and medication renewals. This technology is so versatile and user-friendly that it’s truly having a positive impact on its users.

The Fitbit:

The Fitbit is not necessarily a technology that is specifically for the elderly. This is a device that encourages a healthy lifestyle for the people who use it. It’s important to maintain an active lifestyle when you are older so that you don’t lose mobility, or begin to deteriorate cognitively. The FitBit allows the user to set goals, monitors heart rate, sleep patterns and times and counts the number of steps that the user takes. This is a great way of encouraging the elderly to lead a more active and energetic life, it is essentially a wearable personal trainer that doesn’t put unnecessary pressure on the user.
