>ACCENTUATE YOUR FAVORITE BODY PART?

>Since it is summertime, we have been bombarded with diets and lose weight quick schemes. You’ve seen the infomercials, “Take this magic pill and lose weight in a week.” Then at the bottom of the screen you see all the side effects you may have to go through just to lose weight in a week. The side affect that makes me laugh the most is the one that says may cause anal leakage. What! So, that means at any given time, I could be doing something and a little liquid is going to moisten my pants. I’ll pass on that!

Today, I want everyone to take a break from working yourselves crazy with trying to get into a swimsuit, or a pair of jeans. Just for a minute, let’s all just think about what our favorite body parts are and let’s show them off this weekend. No matter how big or small we get, as women, we all can agree that there is one body part that we think is our best asset. What’s funny is, that body part seems to remain in its best condition whether we gain or lose weight.
Right now, my favorite body part is my hips. They used to be my least favorite, but, now I can really appreciate them and I have been showing them off all summer in pencil skirts and skinny jeans.
Tell me, what’s yours?

>Whose Curves Do you Identify With?

>

All photos were taken from celebrities official websites

There has been a lot of talk about what it means to be curvy. Is curvy just a nice way to say someone is fat or out of shape? Do you use the word curvy when someone has a full figure or hourglass shape? What does curvy mean to you? Do you exclude skinny people from being considered curvy?

When I think of curvy, I think of a shapely body, whether a body is a size 2 or 24. A curvy body can be round and soft but it still has some type of structure and definition to it. I like to think of curvy as Voluptious.

Which curvy celebrity above do you identify with?

Are you like Sherri, all top and no bottom?

Are you like Beyonce, shaped like a pear?

Do you have Tyra’s hourglass figure?

Are you like Jennifer and Latifah, full figured?

Are you like Kim, petite and thick in all the right places or like Chandra petite and full figured?

Or are you like the Queen of Comedy Monique?

FASHION AND RETAIL NEWS
According to CNBC.com:
Clothing maker Jones Apparel Group Inc. said Wednesday second-quarter profit rose 20 percent as the company cut costs and closed stores in a turnaround plan to offset lower revenue.
Second-quarter profit rose 20 percent to $12.6 million, or 15 cents per share, from $10.5 million, or 12 cents per share, last year. Adjusted to exclude a provision for income taxes, loss and costs related to repurchasing notes, a write-off of line of credit fees, severance and other charges, net income was 29 cents per share.

The New York-based company, whose brands include Nine West, Jones New York, Anne Klein and others, said that revenue rose fell 3.1 percent to $803.9 million from $829.4 million last year.
