Outfit Idea: Bike in Fashion

One of my favorite Spring outdoor activity is biking. No, not the intensive cycling type but the casual biking. If you're looking for a date idea or just something to do over the weekend I would recommend renting a bike to take promenade through the beach or the park. Since I live in California two of my favorite place is Griffith Park (Los Angeles) and Coronado Beach (San Diego). Again, California is pretty sunny so when I do bike I like to wear something light to let my skin breath (and look cute).
I normally wear linen shorts and light peasant top for casual biking. However, if you're going on a date, I would recommend wearing a chambray romper and accessorize with a pair of chandelier earrings and a floral pattern scarf (for unexpected weather change). Also, for comfortable biking, platform shoes or flat sandals are great choices.

6 Ways to Beat Your Sugar Habit
Sugar is essential whether you are out riding a bike, running, or working out. If provides us fuel and keeps us going. However, you don't need 23 teaspoons per day, which is how much sugar Americans consume on average. Consuming that amount of sugar is dangerous. It can lead to heart disease, hardened arteries, and many other adverse health conditions. Here are six great tips on beating your sugar addiction, written by Mike Rousell, Ph.D and author of The 6 Pillars of Nutrition. 1. Kick The Can Soda Soda is packed with added sugars. If you can't cut it out cold turkey then try this out. Replace regular soda with diet soda or a reduced calories/sugar-free version, it will reduce the sugar intake while still giving you a sugar fix. After a week of diet soda switch to seltzer water with a slice of citrus. Saves 10 tsp of sugar per day. 2. Sweeten Yogurt Naturally If you are a yogurt lover but you are trying to kick your sugar habit then here is some advice. Pre-made, fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts can sometimes contain up to 30 grams of sugar, much of it added. If you want a healthier snack, get plain sugar free yogurt and mix in some fruit like blueberries. Adding cinnamon can spice things up as well! Saves 2-4 tsp of sugar per day. 3. Snack on Whole Foods and Grains Cookies, candy bars, and even energy bars are not always healthy and usually packed with sugar. Instead, try to eat nuts, vegetables, and fiber-rich fruits (such as apples, pears and berries) or whole grains (even popcorn, plain of course). Saves 2-10 tsp of sugar per day. 4. Dilute Your Fruit Juice You may not know this, but fruit drinks account for about 10% of sugar in our diets. You can cut down drastically by adding equal amounts of water to your juice. This will effectively cut the sugars in half and soon you'll realize that normal juice is WAY too sweet! Saves 2-3 tsp of sugar per day. 5. Swap Out Your Cereal Cereal is notoriously filled with sugars. Put the Frosted Flakes and Fruit Loops back on the shelf, and go for steel-cut oats. You can stir in half a scoop of vanilla protein powder for a sweetness kick and you'll be adding about 10 grams of protein to your diet! Saves 2-4 tsp of sugar per day. 6. Pick Your Own Dessert You may love your chocolate cake or donuts, but they are really packed with sugars. Grilled fruit makes a fantastic desert. It will provide sweetness with a healthy does of fiber on top. Some great grilled fruit is peaches, grapefruit, and watermelon. Saves 2-10 tsp of sugar per day.
Buy Products From eBay in Pakistan
Online shopping is in trends since quite a while now. Everybody loves to shop their favorite products just by tapping a few keys on their keyboard while coming on their couches or beds. There are a number of business companies in the dotcom domain that provide platform for such buyers as well as sellers and one of those companies is Ebay. The online merchants use Ebay as a sales channel to buy and sell their products as it operates in many countries. It is one of the most popular auction sites where anything can be sold; from comic books to DVDs, from dinkies to antique cars. Ebay in Pakistan The sellers on Ebay opt for the countries where they are going to ship, so it’s totally up to them whether they choose to sell in Pakistan or not. Once the sellers choose to sell their specific product in Pakistan, ordering or bidding for a product from Ebay is easy then. Buying from Ebay is not a problem for the people of Pakistan, the main problem is paying for those products because Paypal doesn’t operate in Pakistan. Sellers often don’t choose Pakistan because unavailability of Paypal. Payment methods for Ebay in Pakistan Payment through credit or debit card is mostly a headache because for that you need most of the buyer’s/seller’s basic information. Not all people are willing to give out their personal information to potential customers. As far as Paypal is concerned, it is not available in Pakistan as well. This buying and selling on Ebay problem is solved my many local e-commerce websites. You can easily surf through these websites, pick whatever product you want and order it. The rest is left to the third party which is behind these e-commerce websites. They’ll make sure about the payment as well as the shipment of the product to Pakistan. Another good news for the people in Pakistan who want to buy from Ebay is that many of the banks in Pakistan are offering prepaid or virtual credit cards, the number of these banks is likely to increase with time. These cards can be used to carry out direct payments to the Ebay portal. Moreover, Visa Prepaid options are also available. Points to note while buying from Ebay in Pakistan Remember to use the global version of Ebay which automatically detects your location and localizes the site to Pakistani version. In this way, the shipping costs and product costs will be automatically converted to the Pakistani currency making it convenient for you to shop. You can further narrow down the searches to Asia only. Before going through the categories, check if the seller you’re willing to buy from ships internationally or domestically. If he doesn’t ship to Pakistan, try another seller who does. There are also plenty of Pakistani sellers who are also worth trying. Before going for a third party website considers a seller who ships to Pakistan, this will save you a lot of fatigue. However, most of the e-commerce websites are feasible and you should not be reluctant while choosing a reliable website. Ebay products in Paksitan This post orgionaly featured at OnePoint Blog
Why Hilary Duff's Clothes Shouldn't Define Her Motherhood
Stop slut shaming. Why is it that every time a mom posts a picture of herself where she feels good, the internet has to tear her down because it's too sexy, too provocative, or too inappropriate? Check out the picture that has garnered 118k likes and over 1,000 comments! Hilary Duff, don't let the haters get to you. The 28-year-old mom is under major heat after posting this photo on Tuesday of the outfit she wore to pick up her son Luca from school. Though Duff was feeling 'semi cute' in her very short shorts, tan top, and long trench, many fans had other opinions on her outfit. While Duff did invite her fans to tag themselves in their own #ootd, she got a reaction that were quite the opposite of what she had probably hoped for. "Hey moms! I came up with a semi cute outfit for school drop off! I usually roll in sweat pants or lulu lemons and look like a disaster but this morning I managed to throw something cute together and I thought I would share," Duff captioned the photo. "Cut offs or jeans. A light weight trench over a sweater or tee, cross body bag sneaks or booties and a pair of Sunnies! Now you try! Tag me in your photo (annnnd you don't have to wear such a serious face haha)." Everything from Instagram user señoritaatomasita writing, "I am sorry, the only issue that I have with her outfit is how tiny her shorts are. It given men mix signals about it's okay for them to cat call a female because what she wears. Plus the outfit does not posh" to other user simplelittleway writing, "I have always like her but no way is this appropriate. They look like panties. To whoever said the only ones bothered by this are insecure moms that never lost their baby fat. I love my body and I am thin. I however would never pick my son up in that. It's inappropriate for kids to see woman in their panties. Also I would not want to embarrass my son." Some moms are furious. However, not everyone has the same opinion. Instagram user iledahorsetowater wrote, "Rock it! What is up with all the negativity?? I think you are doing a fabulous job!" Even user shenry1977 loves Duff's style, "Your outfit rocks! Haters = motivators!!!" Many other moms commented that Duff is looking better than ever and there is no reason to retire the shorty shorts to fit a very skewed social standard. Women who support other women, we need more of this. But here's the thing, Duff should be able to wear this because she feels comfortable and it makes her happy. For a society that constantly promotes feminism and girls uniting with other girls to combat slut shaming and gender stereotyping, the negativity comments are doing just the opposite. A mom can be a mom AND sexy, pretty, cute, gorgeous, stunning, funny, and appealing. Just because you have a child does not mean that a woman should sacrifice her identity. Everyone freaked out weeks ago about Kim Kardashian's almost full nude mirror pick and it looks like the same haters have made their way to Duff's post. Leave Duff alone, she looks amazing. One word : WERK.

Five Weight-Loss Myths: Busted
Is your New Year's resolution to shed a few pounds off this year? Well let me make your life easier. Weight loss can be so complex and utterly confusing because there is simply too much conflicting information out there. Here are six myths that will help you have an easier time shedding those pounds. 1. Myth: No Sweets Before Noon Research has found that participants who ate a 600-calorie, carb- and protein-rich breakfast that included dessert (such as ice cream or chocolate) lost more weight over four months than a group that ate a low-carb morning meal. Avoid calorie bombs like huge chocolate chip muffins, and opt for something like a milkshake with vanilla yogurt, peanut butter, and a little chocolate, or a banana muffin with almond butter. 2. Myth: Added Fiber Keeps You Full High-fiber foods (like fruits and veggies) take longer to digest and hold more water so they seem to fill you up and aid weight loss. The results of a study conducted by the University of Minnesota concluded that added fiber had no effect on fullness and caused more bloating than the low-fiber bars. To quell hunger, stick with foods naturally high in fiber instead of added fiber foods. Use whole grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables. 3. Myth: Carbs Lead to Weight Gain According to a study published in April 2012, participants who ate a low-calorie diet high in whole wheat for 12 weeks lost more fat than a group that ate a low-calorie diet high in refined wheat. The whole grains are more filling and that likely participants to feel more full after eating whole wheat. Stick with the whole grain pasta. It may not taste the same as refined pasta, but at least you don't have to give it up all together. 4. Myth: You Should Only Use Zero-Calorie Sweeteners Sucralose, aspartame and stevia may be appealing choices for those who are looking to shed a pound or two. However, according to a joint study by the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association, the scientific evidence connecting zero-calorie sweeteners with long-term weight loss in inconclusive. You have to remember that overcompensation is a problem. Just because you skip a sugary soda at lunch doesn't mean that you can have extra at dinner. You will negate any calorie-saving benefit! 5. Myth: Add More Long Rides Cyclists are always talking about going on longer rides is always better, especially when it comes to weight loss. A study in 2012 had overweigh participants do 30 or 60 minutes of moderate exercise a day. Surprisingly, the participants who exercised less lost more weight during the 13-week study. Those who exercised longer ended up eating more throughout the day than the moderate-exercise group. In other words, the longer they exercised the more they overcompensated in food for it.
