Fashion Review: Live a Luxe Life with Wacoal

Being a working mom, sometimes I take for granted my self and tend to forget that I needed to look good not just for other person or myself but importantly for my family.  I have never been a fashion diva nor good in picking the right clothes for me.

When I was in my teens, i used to wear jeans and shirt because I am more comfortable that way, I rarely wear dresses but always dreaming to wear gowns and  cocktail dresses.  It is the same thing when buying intimate apparels, I don’t mind the brand and just choose what’s affordable not knowing the true essence of wearing the right bra.

Reality shows that wearing the right bra plays a big part to support the body.  It is more about comfort rather than style and fashion after all your not wearing it to give your the sexiest cleavage but to give you the maximum support that you most needed.

But what if you could get both of them, comfort and style?

Wacoal has a wide selection of brassiere for every woman’s lifestyle and age. Because they believe that the woman undergoes certain changes as we grow older, the right fit should not be compromised.

Wacoal Bra – be body beautiful at any age

The secret on looking fabulous is wearing the correct bra.  Just imagine opening a box full of luxe gifts like this, it will surely thrill every part of your senses.

I always wanted to have a pair of this gorgeous intimate apparels. My sister who is a loyal fan of Wacoal for years (You could just imagine how many pairs she had) has always encourages me to buy them but because I thought it was expensive I never bothered to even know it’s price just until now.  Then the realization came,  “I could even buy a Wonder bra that is more expensive, that after several washes, the color would fade and the straps will loose” or the affordable one that after ten to twenty washes, the pads would deform and the under wire will go out injuring my chest.

I am at my 30’s and a year after, i would be out of the calendar and it’s a fact that I can’t deny, my body is starting to sag, that’s why I needed a bra that can help lift my breasts and that’s what Wacoal do best.

As a working mom, I am always on the go and Wacoal bra provides adequate support and comfort;

Great Solution for your Cracked Feet

Cracked feet,  who wants that?  Cracked feet is the symptoms of dry feet.  It’s a fact, many of us used to prioritize making our face or body beautiful and forget that our feet also needs special attention.   Dry feet can be caused by changing of the season and when your feet is lack of hydration because of the long time suffocation on using socks and  sometimes high heeled shoes, cracking becomes visible and sometimes accompanied with itching and burning.

Another cause would be is if you have a sudden change weight that cause your feet to crack and even a long time period of bathing can also cause our skin to lose moisture which can result in cracks.

Prevention and Remedies

Nourishment and protection is needed to avoid cracked feet .  Hot baths and showers while using strong soaps should be minimized or controlled.  Your diet is important too because if you add too much weight, it can caused your feet to cracked.  Hot season could not be avoided and we tend to love spending long time in the shower room , so keep it short to avoid having cracked feet.  Drink lots of water as water helps us stay hydrated.

Soaking feet in lukewarm water with a 3 tablespoons of table salt for few minutes can helps to soften the cracked feet which can ease the problem but this takes time.

There are over the counter topical ointments that can be bought and used for cracking feet  especially cracked heel but sometimes, we don’t know if those could work or worse if there could be side effects.   One remedy i have found is Sophie Paris Cracked heel cream.

Talking in your Sleep- Causes and Treatment

Somniloquy or simply talking in your sleep is a sleeping disorder that is most common on 3 to 10 years old children but there are some adults that also experience this.  Studies show that there is no harm done to the people who sleep while they are asleep but it can be very annoying for those who sleep beside you and can also be a subject of ridicule and embarrassing when you are sleeping with other people.

Generally, someone who sleep talk is not aware of what she was talking.  I have experienced sleep walking and talking in my childhood days and based from experience, I never had the slightest idea what I have done or talked about when I wake up the following morning. Sleep talking can range from small mutterings to long winded conversations.  Others says that you can even create a conversation with someone who is experiencing sleep talking. Studies shows that girls are more prone to sleep talk rather than boys. (I never known any boys that sleep talk)

sleep talking is common to children

Most sleep talking is calm and monotone. Though it is rare, some sleep talkers have been known to yell out and frighten those around them. Sleep talking is a part of the sleeping disorder parasomnia. This is caused by non-restful or unfulfilled sleep stages.  Those who suffers parasomnia often display activities in their sleep such as sleepwalking, sleep talking, teeth grinding, and night terrors. Some also experience body jerking and thrash about in their sleep. The person is usually unable to fall fully asleep that could cause drowsiness.  As for me, i have experienced all of them and I guess some of you possibly know the old saying that it’s bad when your teeth grinding and the elders will even slap you with sleepers when you have done that.  ( I have been slapped for several times but honestly, I don’t remember feeling anything or knowing it.  Funny, but’s its the reality)

Possible Causes of Sleep Talking:

Sleep talking is thought to run in families, but there are some other factors which may affect a person’s sleep patterns. These can include:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety disorders or other psychiatric disorders
  • Stress
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Fever

Solutions or Treatments:

There is no known procedure to reduce sleep talking but avoiding stress and knowing the reasons that might have been the source of the problem can help you.  Avoiding drinking a lot of coffee or other caffeinated beverages before going to bed can also help.  Getting plenty of sleep can also help in some way because by doing so, you are secure that you are getting enough rest which your body needs.

Sleep talking rarely requires treatment. However, severe sleep talking may be the result of another more serious sleep disorder or medical condition, which can be treated. When you think that sleep talking is getting serious you can always talk to a physician or doctor about possible treatment.

First you will need to measure around your body under your bust.  Basically if the measure-ment is an even number, add 4 inches (or 10cm), or in case of an odd number add 5 inches (12.5cm).

Over-bust

This time simply measure around the fullest part of your bust and subtract the measurement from the bra size you just worked out above. And finally just check the chart below to find your cup size.

You should take your measurements while you are wearing a non-padded underwire bra or a tight-fitting seamless T.   You will know that you have eventually bought the correct bra when it’s not painful or uncomfortable to wear.  If you own a bra that fits you well then that bra must be your correct bra size.  Getting the right bra fit is definitely a must for more stylish obsession, you can check out my previous post or my other blog post.
