How to Dress for a Hot Summer

Many people nowadays like to display a keen fashion sense that says that they are up-to-date with all the latest trends. However, this is a lot harder for some people than it is for others and one of the main reasons can be the weather. Extremes, both hot and cold, make it difficult for you to show off your best outfits. If it is freezing, all of your fancy clothing will be hidden under a large winter coat, while if it is really hot, you will barely want to wear anything at all. However, dressing properly during a hot summer is still possible and we are here to tell you how.


1. Set your priorities This is the first thing that you should do. While it is important for you to look good, there is a line you must not cross if you still want to feel good. You need to find a good balance between appearance and functionality in everything you wear. All your clothes will need to be very light if you do not want to end up being a sweaty mess. If that happens, you won’t look good no matter what you wear.

2. Choose your fabrics carefully Whenever you are picking out something to wear on a hot summer, the first thing you should ask is “What is it made of?” You will want your clothing to allow the skin to breathe so that you do not overheat. Fabrics that are porous, contain fine threads and loose weaves are the key here. Typically, you will want to go with natural fibers as artificial ones are usually non-breathable. Think of cotton and linen as your best options.

3. Think about the shoes It is vital that you get the footwear right because, if you do not, your feet can be prone to a lot of sweating. Obviously, your final choices will also be dictated by your circumstances – you might not be able to wear what you want when you go to work or a fancy dinner party – but, if you can, sandals are usually the best option. The fact that they are open toe means that you can avoid wearing socks which will only heat up your feet and it also allows the breeze to sweep past your toes. A pair of Orthaheel sandals would be great in this situation.

4. Reflect the sun The more of the sun’s rays your body absorbs, the hotter you will be. That is why you should look to wear something that reflects sunlight instead of absorbing it. When it comes to clothes, this means light colors. White, yellow, light green and other similar colors work great for the summer style because they are much better at reflecting the sunlight, thus keeping your body cool. Now that you know what to wear in order to feel comfortable and look good, it is time to take the next step. Visit www.soleprovisions.com and you will find a host of different kinds of footwear that is perfect for summer and will fit your style.

Get scared with *The Conjuring 2013*

Yesterday night we get the chance to watch The Conjuring, yeah happy me because I won two movie passes to watch it. Earlier I missed the chance to watch because same night was The Wolverine.

How do we calm ourselves when watching this movie? We have got popcorn or chips in hand to eat while watching the movie. Yeah I think this way we get less scare watching the movie. How about you?

In 1971, Carolyn and Roger Perron with their five daughters move into a old farm house in Harrisville, Rhode Island. On the first day, one of their daughters found a music box near the tree. They are happy to see the house once they reach there, the first night their dog didn't want to enter the house. The second day their daughter went looking for the dog but found him dead. Carolyn has bruise on her leg, the bruise started appearing on her body each day. Yeah creepy, Roger ask her to see a doctor.

Do you know how they bought the old farm house? It is through auction and they have no idea who was earlier living in this home. Even though the home is beautiful near the lake but sad to say not everything look that perfect. One woman hang herself at the branch of the tree near the lake.

Ed and Lorraine Warren are paranormal investigators, you will be more familiar with ghostbusters. Carolyn approached them for help because her daughters too experience the scary moments through the night.

Lorraine Warren has special gift, she can feel and sense spirit. Once she steps into the house of Carolyn and Roger Perron, she knew something is not right. They are spirits latching on the family, even though if they decided to move, it doesn't help because the spirits have latch on to the family.

If you like horror movie, you will like to how Ed and Lorraine help the family. They almost lost Carolyn and two of the daughters!

I don't know that Ed and Lorraine's home have kept all the antics and toys. Pss.. they aren't really toy to play with. Watch out!

The Wolverine VS Conjuring movies

Yesterday I told you about the expired GSC Vouchers I won. Well, I must say both movies are not related but I can tell you I won both passes to watch both movies! Yes, both same night too. Oh boy, this is tough decision. This morning heading to school to wait for son and I was in the car. I listen to MIX FM and there goes the song Gangnam Style, DJ said after the song will be four tickets up for grab! Guess what?! I waited..

I then listen to Q to call and I called in and answered the question correctly and that's it I won! I didn't know the date of movie but I know it is The Wolverine. Both movie same night different type and different cinema.

Supposed I have set date with my friend to watch Conjuring, the horror movie based on true story. Now this The Wolverine where I can watch with my dear and son.
