Which 70's Style is for You?

You've probably noticed how 70's fashion is all the rage this summer and coming fall. Whether you love or hate the style, what if you're looking at the wrong 70's styles? Like any period, the 70's gave way to a whole host of styles for different personalities and tastes, and not everyone wore hippie-chic for a decade. Which one of these styles is right for you?

Bohemian

Often confused with hippie-chic, boho style is long and loose, lightweight and flowy. If prints are your thing, opt for washed-out and neutral colors and paisley or delicate florals. If you find yourself reaching for a minidress and knee-high boots, you aren't as boho as you thought; opt for the hippie dippie looks instead. Keep your hair and makeup soft and natural.

Disco

One of the flashier styles of the seventies was disco wear, complete with sequins and lamé. If you don't want to look like you're in a Saturday Night Fever costume, take inspiration with flared jumpsuits and keyholes, plus white on white and pops of orange and pink neon. Feathers and ruffles optional.

Hippie-Chic

The colorful minidresses are a clear indicator of hippie chic, over a long, flowing style that would be classified as more bohemian. Bell bottoms are also acceptable, especially paired with plunging necklines and velvet layers, plus heeled boots of course. Keep your long hair parted in the middle, unless you have bangs, which will do the trick as well.

Sporty 70's

This kind of old-school Americana inspired decades of terry-cloth tracksuits and retro white minidresses. Polo shirts made chic are great tucked into short shorts, worn under track jackets and with simple gold jewelry. Denim can make an appearance too, in the form of relaxed flared jeans, with classic kicks and a primary-color sweater tucked in.

Glam Rock and Punk

From punk rockers to glam rock, this style is more of a spectrum, but the subcultural style ranges from androgynous suits to ripped tees and extra embellishments. If you're trying to introduce this subtly into your style, add more metallics and uninsex pieces before going full-on punk. Don't be afraid to load on the eyeliner, and keep your hair as short as possible.

5 Ways To Tell Your Vitamin D Is Low and 5 Foods That Are High in Vitamin D
Several generations ago, it was common for parents to leave their naked infants in the sun every day for good health. Our modern minds are prone to exclaiming, "That's insane! Did they apply sunscreen first?” Although it may not be how we would do it today, these parents did help their children get enough vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic in the United States, affecting as many as 90 percent of some adult populations. This is a serious public health issue that must be addressed. What Is the Function of Vitamin D? Vitamin D, which is actually a hormone, differs from other vitamins. Our body can produce the majority of what we require rather than relying on food. But It is not the same fo for vitamin D. Vitamin D is also known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it is produced by our bodies when sunlight is converted into chemicals that can be used by the body. When UVB rays strike our skin, a substance in our skin converts to D3, which then travels through our bloodstream to our kidneys and liver. Vitamin D is fat-soluble and is found in the body's fatty tissues as well as the liver. It is an important nutrient for overall health, and studies show that a lack of it can lead to brittle bones, breast cancer, colon cancer, autoimmune disorders, high blood pressure, and heart disease. What Is the Best Way to Get Vitamin D? Our body makes vitamin D primarily through exposure to sunlight, and with adequate exposure, we can produce adequate amounts. With the rise in skin cancer over the last few decades, however, many people now wear sunscreen, limiting the opportunity for the skin to do its incredible sunlight conversion. It is difficult to strike a balance between the need to get enough vitamin D and the need to protect our skin from damage. And, because it varies from person to person, there is no precise amount of sunlight that doctors can point to as the ideal amount for vitamin D production. Experts recommend 10-20 minutes of sun exposure per day in general, but this varies greatly depending on the individual and their location. People with dark skin produce less of the nutrient than those with light skin. Young people outnumber older people in terms of output. And those living north of Atlanta in the United States will find it nearly impossible to get enough UVB exposure during the winter, no matter how willing they are to forego sunscreen. 5 Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms Blood tests ordered by your doctor are the only way to diagnose low vitamin D levels, but here are some warning signs to look out for and discuss with your doctor: 1. Infections and illnesses are common. Vitamin D receptors are found throughout our body, including on immune cells. One of vitamin D's primary functions is to assist our bodies in fighting infections. If you are prone to colds, flu, and respiratory infections, you may be deficient in this essential nutrient. 2. Pain in the muscles and bones. Vitamin D is well known for its role in osteoporosis prevention because it aids calcium absorption. However, it also appears to have anti-inflammatory properties. If you suffer from chronic bone, back, or muscle pain, you may need to increase your D levels. 3. Fatigue on a regular basis. Adults can easily dismiss their constant tiredness as a result of getting older and busier. Even when patients look for the source of their chronic fatigue, vitamin D deficiency is frequently overlooked. However, studies show that extremely low levels of this nutrient cause chronic fatigue and tiredness. 4. Hair thinning. This is a symptom that many people immediately associate with stress. While stress can be a cause of hair loss, vitamin D deficiency should also be considered. Low levels have been linked to the autoimmune disorder alopecia areata, which causes severe hair loss all over the body. 5. Depression. There are vitamin D receptors in the part of the brain that influences the development of depression, so a lack of the nutrient may result in the disorder. Low levels of D have been linked to depression in studies conducted in Norway and Sweden. 5 Vitamin D Rich Foods Because most of us are unable or unwilling to spend enough unprotected time in the sun to produce vitamin D, we must rely on food sources. Here are five foods that will help you increase your levels: Fatty Fish Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, it must be combined with fat to be utilised. Vitamin D is abundant in fish such as salmon, tuna, herring, and sardines. These fish are also high in protein and healthy fats. Lamb and Beef Liver Although many people do not consider organ meat to be a favourite food, it is extremely nutrient-dense and a great source of vitamin D. Beef liver, in addition to being high in D, is also high in iron, making it a nutritional powerhouse. Egg Yolk Eggs are well-known for being high in protein, but their yolks also contain a significant amount of vitamin D. Unfortunately, due to cholesterol concerns, egg yolks have spent a lot of undeserved time on the Western world's naughty list of foods. Fortunately, that era has passed, and we now recognise the incredible health and nutritional benefits of eggs. Fortified Foods Vitamin D is added to many foods, including cereals, oatmeal, milk, and orange juice. Although these items are not as effective as other food sources at delivering nutrients, they are useful in addressing deficiencies in the population, particularly among children. Shellfish Shrimp and oysters are both low-calorie vitamin D sources, making them ideal for a healthy diet. Oysters have the added benefit of being high in B12.

I Can't Believe It's Not ____!: Songs you didn't know were covers
Full disclosure: Neither butter nor its evil counterpart, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, have really anything to do with the rest of this card at all. But the name is just so damn catchy and malleable, so, forgive me. Moving on, I'm here to give some love to the original composers and performers of songs that you may not know deserve credit. Sometimes, a song gets buried for years, only to be picked up by a totally different artist (often in a different genre and style), and it's the second version that blows up. In lots of these cases, there is little mention of the original. Let's change that. I Can't Believe It's Not LED ZEPPELIN! Song: "Dazed and Confused" (1969) Original: Jake Holmes (1967) Eerily enough, Jake Holmes actually has some real Robert Plant qualities to his voice. Or maybe Plant ripped his vocal style off of Holmes just like he did one of his best songs. I don't know. Is nothing sacred? I Can't Believe It's Not AMY WINEHOUSE! Song: "Valerie" (2007) Original: The Zutons (2006) The Zutons are kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. They're a not-very-good mid-2000s Brit rock group, but something about the lead singer's voice is really appealing to me. Amy's version is damn-near perfect and is the basis of every A Capella group's top hit, but it wouldn't have been possible without The Zutons. Which is not something that you can say for many things in this world. I Can't Believe It's Not ARETHA FRANKLIN! Song: "Respect" (1967) Original: Otis Redding (1965) Ok, this one is legitimately surprising. I've heard the Otis version a million times and I didn't know that it was his song until recently. The two versions are really, really different, and each is awesome in its own right. It's hard to go wrong with Otis or Aretha. Everyone wins. I Can't Believe It's Not THE BEATLES! Song: "Twist and Shout" (1963) Original: The Isley Brothers (1962) The Isley Brothers didn't actually write this song - Phil Medley and Bert Burns did - but they were the first to chart the song, before The Beatles did a year later. Fun fact: The Beatles recorded Please Please Me, the record that contains this hit, in just 10 hours. Their producer knew that "Twist and Shout" would totally ruin John Lennon's voice because of its demanding style, so he saved it for last, with just 15 minutes of scheduled recording time left. Indeed, it totally blew out Lennon's voice, and, while the producer wanted to do a second take, Lennon just couldn't manage it. Ended up fine, if you ask me. I Can't Believe It's Not ELVIS PRESLEY! Song: "Hound Dog" (1956) Original: Big Mama Thornton (1952) Oh man! OH MAN! Who is Big Mama Thornton, and where has she been? This woman is a force! She also recorded "Ball n' Chain" before Janis Joplin made it a hit. Give the lady some love! This version is fucking awesome! But, yeah, Elvis's is better. Sorry Big Mama. Which one surprises you the most? Do you like the originals better, or the more popular covers? Music community folks: Reveal yourselves!
6 Laser Hair Removal Myths Busted And More
Have you ever calculated how much time you devote to hair removal? Hair removal on the legs, underarms, brows, and arms has become a daily, weekly, and monthly ritual, but it does not have to be. Hair removal is a time-consuming and thankless task because it keeps growing back. Shaving, waxing, and threading all have advantages, but what if you didn't have to choose any of these because the hair was permanently removed? This is where modern laser hair removal techniques come into play. The Diode laser is considered the "gold standard" in hair removal machines. This machine has a built-in cooling system and reduces the risk of hyperpigmentation. Laser Hair Removal vs Laser Hair Reduction Modern laser hair removal methods recognise that hair removal may not be completely permanent, and many clients will need to return for touch-up sessions from time to time. This is reflected in the fact that many clinics now refer to the procedure as hair reduction rather than hair removal. What Is Laser Hair Removal? Laser hair removal works by destroying the ability of the hair follicle to grow new hair. This means that hair removal will be reduced indefinitely. These hair follicles can regrow over time, possibly as a result of hormonal changes, so maintenance treatments may be required. Myths surrounding Laser Hair Removal Is laser hair removal only for hair? It can also treat other types of skin problems, such as vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, hemangioma, and nail fungus, to name a few. Is it painful to use laser hair removal? Not at all; the Diode laser that we use has a specialised cooling system to keep you comfortable and pain-free. Is hair removal only for women? Certainly not! We can help you get the best skin you can, whether you're male, female, trans, young, or old! Women are often the most frequent users of LHR, but they are not the only ones. Laser hair removal is effective on all hair colours. No, this is not true; this treatment can only be used on dark hair. Other treatments are available for people with light hair, so make an appointment with your dermatologist to discuss your options. I don't have to shave before treatment. This is also false. For the majority of people, shaving the area prior to treatment is the best course of action. Waxing, threading, or epilation can all cause problems. I can get treatment if I have a tan. This is also false; treatment cannot be performed if you have a tan.
Is A Breast Lift Right For You?
Our body ages as time passes. Breasts lose volume and fullness. They droop and make you self-conscious as a result of these changes. Continue reading to learn everything you need to know about a breast lift and the benefits you can expect. What Does a Breast Lift Entail? The breasts are lifted and firmed during a breast lift surgery. A lollipop incision is ideal for breasts that require a minimal bit of lift. If only the areola and nipple need to be elevated, a single incision around the areola can be used to obtain the desired effects. If your nipples and areola are below the level of the inframammary crease, you'll need a third incision to see results. Breast Lift Advantages A breast lift has numerous physical and psychological advantages. After significant weight gain or loss, many women notice that their breasts alter shape and sag. A breast lift can boost your self-esteem, which can improve your quality of life. Let's have a look at some of the physical advantages. Physical Advantages A breast lift has various physical advantages. Without augmentation, a breast lift can give you a larger appearance. This is due to the fact that the surgery makes your breasts appear firmer and larger. You can achieve a more youthful, renewed appearance by elevating your breasts. You can enjoy the results of your weight loss and feel proud of your successes and newly better physique by removing stretched out, superfluous, flabby skin and altering the location of the nipple. Is It True That I'm a Good Candidate? Your medical history will be reviewed by a cosmetic surgeon to evaluate if you are a good candidate for a breast lift. If your nipple and areola are located beneath the inframammary fold or the crease beneath your breast, you may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift. If your nipples appear to be pointing downward and you want them to face forward, you may benefit from a breast lift. Many women who have breast lifts are unhappy with how their breasts seem when they wear a bra. In a bra, a breast raise can make your breasts appear rounder, fuller, and more attractive. It can also treat asymmetry or a tuberous appearance of the breasts that may have developed since puberty or as a result of breastfeeding. If you're unhappy with the size of your breasts after your breast lift, talk to your doctor about a breast reduction or breast augmentation with fat. What Should I Anticipate? It will take a few months for your newly shaped breasts to settle into place after your breast lift. The benefits, on the other hand, are long-lasting. Your body will continue to age and be affected by gravity, but you will be able to enjoy the results of your treatment for decades. It is safe to nurse after a breast lift, although childbearing, breastfeeding, or gaining a lot of weight can make the treatment less effective. Maintain an active lifestyle and a healthy weight for the greatest outcomes.

How to Look Like Stevie Nicks
Whether you love Stevie's solo stuff or are a die-hard Fleetwood Mac fan, you can't deny that the songbird had some killer style back in the day. From her peasant-princess 70's looks to her amped-up 80's style, I'm taking you through Stevie Nicks' style. (Special shout-out to @allischaaff for reminding me how inspirational Ms. Nicks' fashion has been!) 70's In the 1970's, Fleetwood Mac was fresh on the music scene, and Stevie Nicks was the gorgeous lead singer that had an understated bohemian fashion sense envied by all. Her half-up, half-down blonde hairstyle was embellished with eyebrow skimming bangs. She wore plenty of trends of the seventies from peasant blouses to bell-bottoms, but she kept them sultry and simple, often in black, white, or cream. 70's Stevie was not shy of accessorizing, however, and she layered on necklaces and chains as embellishment to her simple dresses and tops. A chain or two would add some subtle glamour to an otherwise breezy and lightweight bohemian look. These aviator sunglasses were also a common look, coyly tucked under her signature bangs. She often wore a kimono, scarf, or shawl draped over her arms for some stylish coverage. 70's For the cameras, Ms. Nicks hammed up her seventies style with brooches, halters, and her flippy, flippy hair. The flared jeans and platform heel combo was then and is now especially cool and relaxed looking, without seeming costumey. 80's ...and then came the 1980's, and our beloved bohemian goddess went through a bit of a transformation. If this is the look you're after, take a comb to your hair, and just start teasing. Gone is Stevie's fresh face, to be replaced with a bright lip and swept-on blush. There's something to say for Stevie's look in the 80's. Perhaps it was over-the-top and bolder than her demure 70's style, but she was also coming into her own and recording solo music at the time, which turned out to be a big success. Her signature pout stayed the same all along, she just added more or less to emphasize those blonde longs and her petite frame. 80's Stevie went in the glam route in the 80's, but merged the boldness of glitter and sequins with a witchy darkness that seperated her from cutsier girl groups of the decade. If you aren't afraid to try some big hair and sparkle, avoid color and drape yourself in feathers and sequins in black for the Stevie effect. "Stand Back" shows more 80's influence than her softer work (like Landslide) with Fleetwood Mac, but she also develops a more nuanced sound that sets her apart from 80's pop, and her dark and enchanting style shows this. Stevie Nicks has been aptly named the fairy godmother of rock. Throw on some layered necklaces and black sequins, and tease up your hair to channel your inner Stevie and feel the girl power course through your veins.
