Latest Event Updates
Choose shirts that are the right length. Look for tops that skim over your hips; tops that extend just below you hipbone extend your torso and mask the widest part of your hips. Avoid hemlines that reach down to your thighs, however, since these will only make the widest part of your legs look wider.
Look for embellished tops. Shirts that have adornment near the neck elongate the shoulder and neckline. You can also choose to wear a scarf to the same effect.
Look for the right neckline. Wide necklines like boat-necks and scoop-necks visually widen your shoulders. Wear horizontal strips and high neck crop top.
Show off your shoulders. If you’re pear-shaped, you want to show your shoulders off by wearing off-the-shoulder tops that expose one or both shoulders. These tops immediately attract attention and steer the eye exactly where you want it. Ruffles or puffy sleeves on your top are also great for pears.
Layer your tops. Use layers of tank tops, blouses, and cardigans to create visual interest. If you’re using multiple layers which take away the smallness of your waist, use a thin belt to cinch them in.
- Accentuate your hips with dark colors, loose bottoms and minimal detail.
Wear pants or jeans that have a flare on the bottom. A flared leg draws the eye away from your hips and creates a more flattering line for your whole body. Conversely, stay away from capri or tapered pants.
Avoid details at the hip or rear. Avoid glitzy pants and belts, and stay away from bottoms embellished with buttons, gemstones, sequins, or bold embroidery near your hips and rear.
Look for dresses that are A-line or that have a tulip-skirt, and avoid those that are tight and stick to your hips. Dresses get bonus points if they are banded around the waist and cover up your shoulders.
The best bet for a girl with a pear shaped body is to go for a top with embellishments or ruffles.

10 minutes, ha! I’m going to show you not one, but six things. We’ll change your life and we’ll do it with time to spare.
After this, you’ll feel calm, prepared and ready to take on the world, like this:
First, imprint this image of a staircase in your head:
The word “savers” is an acronym. It stands for:
Now, every morning, right when you wake up, do each of these six things for one minute.
1. Sit upright, legs crossed, eyes closed in silence. Let your thoughts pass through. Breathe slowly and deeply, like you’re meditating.
2. Read or recite a short set of affirmations, a little pep talk for yourself. I keep mine in my nightstand. Look at yourself in the mirror for extra oomph.
3. Visualize yourself going through your day. Open your window or step outside, look at the sky, and imagine yourself actually doing the things you will do that day, whether it’s grocery shopping, filling an Excel table, writing, cold calling people or flambéing a chicken.
4. Do ONE set of ONE exercise. That’s it. Shoot for however many repetitions you can muster that day. I like push ups. Sometimes I do 20. Sometimes 50. Adapt to how well you feel.
5.Read one page in a book. This isn’t about crossing items off your reading list. It’s about finding one good piece of insight to accompany you throughout the day. A blink is good too.
6. Write into a 1-sentence journal. Many people over complicate journaling. It’s helpful even if you just answer one question with one sentence. You cannot write a sentence without learning something. Pick one question you’ll answer each morning, for example:
- How do you feel right now?
- What did you learn yesterday?
- Are you ready to take on the day? Why/why not?
That’s it! Six minutes that will pay off for the rest of your day, and if you do it regularly, for the rest of your life.
4 minutes left on the clock, man, so much time, what else can you do? How about creating something?
- Start writing an answer on Quora.
- Take a picture and put it on Instagram.
- Craft a funny tweet.
- Send a snap to your family.
- Wish people a great day on Facebook.
- Give an inspiring speech on Soundcloud
Wow! You just woke up and you’ve already changed your life and made a positive impact on that of others.
Imagine what you can do in a day.
I learned this morning routine from Hal Elrod, a wonderful guy who’s detailed it in his book The Miracle Morning. I’ve written a much more extensive guide on it here: The Miracle Morning Solution – a 7-step morning routine.
On everyday basis we tend to lose sight of our real priorities. The main benefit behind this lifestyle is that you create room for whats important and you give less focus on materialistic possessions.
Some Ways to Sample Living With Less
1. Clothes. According to statistics, we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. The simple exercise of going through your closet and removing all unused clothing leaves your closet lighter, your mornings less stressful, and your wardrobe full of things you love.
2. Decorations. Many of the decorations in our homes hold no personal value to our lives. Take a moment to walk through your home with a discerning eye. Leave only the decorations that are the most meaningful and the most beautiful.
7. Furniture. It may require some heavy-lifting, but if you’re up for the challenge, removing excess furniture from your rooms will immediately open up significant space and airflow in your home. The rarely-used pieces of furniture in your home are quickly recognizable and taking up more space than you realize.

I’ve known boys stalking girls, and girls stalking boys.
I’ve seen fans standing for hours merely to catch sights of celebrities.
I’ve heard people judging others here, there and everywhere, all in vain.
I’ve met people scrolling up & down through social media all the time.
I’ve witnessed people intruding in others’ lives.
And to be brutally honest, I found none of them happy or content. Not even close to that.
So, the only thing that I told myself after observing all this was — “Never ever let yourself be more interested in someone else’s life than your own.”
And I’ve been much happier since that very day.
An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his book. One day the grandson asked, “Grandpa! I try to read the book just like you but I don’t understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon
as I close the book. What good does reading the book do?”
The grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, “Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water.”
The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house. The grandfather laughed and said, “You’ll have to move a little faster next time,” and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time, the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said, “I don’t want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You’re just not trying hard enough,” and he went out the door to watch the boy try
again. At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into the river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was
again empty. Out of breath, he said, “See Grandpa, it’s useless!”
“So you think it is useless?” the old man said, “Look at the basket.” The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.
Son, that’s what happens when you read the book.
You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out!!!
