Walking to work, wearing flats

Walking to work, wearing flats. To walk don’t compromise and just wear trainers, they are now wonderful to help shaping your body. So what are the best shoes.

Walking to work, wearing flats. Yes! Although we love our heals, they are not sensible for a walk. Since We now walk to the station, let’s not compromise and just wear trainers or flats.  Why not just  claim “I walk and I am self-confidence, and making a statement of equality with men, I do not need heels to please you. Remember why shoes matter

Chipie and her friends have chosen REEBOK Easytone , and yes we can feel they work on our bottom, legs and posture. When wearing with we feel like we fly, with our heels we cannot walk quickly without pain. With trainers or flats, it is very easy to walk, American women understood that years ago and you can see many of them walking in flat shoes or trainers in New York. Another bonus, when you arrive at work and put on your smart shoes on, you feel so light and tall!!! a dream…

Another pair of trainers to try is the New MBT Kamba Womens Fitness Shoes. Many of my friends adopted them years ago and they love them. Now they are far less bulky and they look great.

Walking is a wonderful activity to shape your body, it helps your circulation and therefore it is great for your legs. My friends who regularly walk have fabulous legs, and it is quite fun to go for a long walk with them. It is also good to walk after lunch or diner, as it helps your digestion.

So chipies, walking to work is an easy way to tone your body. Plus to can avoid waiting for the bus, and save money. It is also great to wake up and enjoy a little you time. Enjoy!

Slimming creams that work!

Slimming creams that work, the true tests. In April 2004, a French test involving the thighs of 200 women has found that what say in the adverts is true: “miracle” slimming creams do reduce cellulite. 

The French well-known consumers’ a association “60 Million de Consommateurs“, the French equivalent of the UK Consumers’ Association published its test results in 2004.

At time the best of 10 slimming creams were L’Oreal Perfect Slim and Elancyl’s Chrono Active, now called Galenic Elancyl Cellu Reverse Slimming Serum

They reduce the circumference of women’s thighs by up to two centimetres in two weeks. Marie-Jeanne Husset, editor of  the Consumers’ Association in France, said: “We have tested … creams on three previous occasions and never found them to be more effective than a thigh massage. This time, our test has come to the very conclusion that women want to hear. People have been astonished to find us giving the thumbs up,” 

The slimming creams that work available in the UK are:

  • Clarins Body Lift Contour Control now Clarins High Definition Body Lift.  High quality cosmetic, non allergic. Both the quality of Clarins products and great results.
  • L’Oreal Perfect Slim : Good slimming lotion, pleasant, easy to apply and comfortable. L’Oreal offers slimming creams that work at affordable price.

Our new findings are:-

Revitol-Cellulite Reduction Solution is based on Caffeine/Coffee Extract. It definitely works for me, so despite its slightly unpleasant smell I will keep using it.

Nuxe Body Contouring Serum for Embedded Cellulite 150ml is recommended by Sarah Mony, a French nutritionist.

Models’ body secret before a bikini photo shoot

Models’ body secret before a bikini photo shoot, James Duigan shared a top model secret to look fabulous for a bikini photo shoot!

He shared in an interview that a lots of his model clients take an Epsom salts bath just before a bikini photo shoot.

Just add one or two mugs of Epsom salts  to a hot bath. Epsom salts are an ancient remedy for drawing out toxins. Taking one or two of these baths a week will speed up your weight loss.

If it is good for a model, it must be good for us too!!! I made my researched and found that they are called Epsom salts because of the town of Epsom in England where this salt was harvested. Overall, it helps our body function like clockwork. This is because Epsom salt baths can regulate enzyme activity in our body. Our skin is able to absorb magnesium while soaking in an Epsom salt bath. This means that we receive a good supply of it while relaxing. After all, many among us are deficient in magnesium, and we don’t even know it. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include arthritis, unnatural stress levels, fatigue and heart disease among others. It can also help bolster our intestinal walls. And you can buy EPSOM SALTS here and it is quite cheap!

I bought mine and I will try tonight, I cannot wait!

Belts, so feminine

Belts, so feminine. Belts highlight your waist, belts are silhouette-defining pieces.  Belts are also this “je ne sais quoi” which makes your look so chic.


Belts are so feminine, so show your waist, show your forms, all women have something beautiful to highlight. If you have waist, show it! My advice, invest in quality belts, you will keep them for ages.

As shoes, belts give to other an indication of who you are, discrete, bold, elegant. I love outfits highlighted with belts, they add chic and fun twist on a traditional wardrobe staple. So don’t compromise with quality, belts have to be in leather. Details in the belt make all the difference, for example a belt featuring a flat bow detail, with python-effect leather, with embellishments, or a flamboyant color (matching your shoes would be my choice). You can also wear it with a knot in order to add more creativity and personality.

Thin belts are perfect for adding an elegant and feminine edge to coats, knitwear, and jackets, our selection:

Colour belts are great to dark color-block outfits, our selection:

Varnish belts Sleek patent belt are great on black outfit, extremly chic and elegant, especially with a sleek black detail on the shoes, our selection:

Animal-print belt add a hint of opulence to a simple, color-block outfit, our selection:

Large Belts, corset belt are the quintessence of femininity, dare wearing them, they are fabulous.

Brand belts, many of us love brands, they are a statement of our position in the society, unfortunately too many people will judge you on the brand of your clothes, shoes, bags…which is not right. In the meantime, brands are also a guarantee of quality. They work with talented creator who design for use models perfectly structured, using fabrics and craftsman of exception. If the brands are a sign of quality, we do not particularly like to display their logos, the logo mania is anti chic. Now, here are a few belts, we wouldn’t mind in my wardrobe at all!
