    Learning how to lose 5 pounds in week might be tempting if you have a particular goal in mind, however, you should know that losing that amount is no easy feat. 

    The amount of weight you lose depends greatly on your starting point and while it's initially possible to lose 5 pounds in a week, a more realistic and attainable goal is to focus on losing about 1 or 2 pounds per week to be able to avoid gaining back that weight.

    Since it takes a 3,500 calorie deficit to lose 1 pound, losing 5 pounds a week entails slashing 17,500 calories in just a week, which is quite difficult to sustain and even potentially dangerous for your health, so lowering your expectations is a good first step to consider. Even so, there are a few things you can do to maximize your chances to lose weight fast. Here are a couple of them:

    Published On 18 Apr 2014

    These days, easy homemade mask recipes are abundant and can be easily customized depending on individual needs. Inexpensive, easy to use and easily customizable, face masks can be an important part of a weekly pampering ritual. To get maximum benefit from your face masks, it's important to keep in mind both your skin type and the issues you're trying to tackle and keep a few things in mind.

    The face masks should be applied on a clean face, avoiding the eye area and testing the mixture on a less visible part of the face. While homemade face mask recipes aren't typically irritating, it's always best to test first to be sure. The frequency of use depends on the type of mask you're using, however, most specialists recommend using homemade masks no more than three times a week. Here are a few homemade mask ideas you might want to try:

    Many people experience weight loss when they stop eating meat, cheese and other animal products, but switching to a vegan diet doesn’t guarantee anything, not great health and certainly not weight loss. In order to lose weight as a vegan, whether you’re new to it or have been avoiding animal source foods for longer, you need to try a few simple rules.

    With the help of the right vegan weight loss tips, you’ll get results faster, even without a strict diet, because you’ve already cut off most of the foods that are most likely to cause weight gain.

  • Celebrities Before and After Photoshop
    Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
    Published On 17 Apr 2014

    While all images in magazines and ads are photoshopped, sometimes they truly distort the real image of celebrities and create a truly unrealistic ideal of beauty. For a healthy dose of reality, see a few celebrities before and after Photoshop.

    From the newest Lady Gaga Versace campaign to a few older Photoshop scandals, see the real images of celebrities and decide for yourself who had just a little too much done. Since everything can be done digitally, some celebs even give up makeup during the photoshoot and the original images aren’t always pretty. Here they are before and after.

    Lady Gaga for Versace Ads

    The singer has faced excessive photoshop criticism before, but Lady Gaga's new ads for Versace really take it up a notch.

  • How to Get Over a Guy You Can't Be With
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
    Published On 17 Apr 2014

    Getting over someone is never easy, whether it's someone you can't date for various reasons or someone who simply doesn't share your feelings. Unrequited love can be very painful and unfortunately there are no easy, clear-cut answers to the question 'how do you forget about someone?'. Even so, there are a few things that can be helpful even though the process itself can be a difficult one:

    Acknowledge your feelings

    It might seem basic, however, acknowledging and accepting your feelings is one of the most important steps for moving on. Denying your feelings or trying to minimize them in any will only make matters worse and will end up stalling your recovery, making it even harder to let go. Allow yourself time to 'grieve' and be upset, just as you would when recovering from a breakup. While it might not technically be a breakup, the feelings of loss you're experiencing is quite similar to the process of going through a tough breakup.

  • Lady Gaga Versace Photoshop Scandal
    Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
    Published On 17 Apr 2014

    The unretouched Lady Gaga for Versace spring/summer 2014 photos that have surfaced online are the cause of a new controversy. The leaked shots of the new campaign reveal a much less glamorous view compared to the official Photoshopped ads, which is rather surprising considering the fact that the singer previously spoke against Photoshop.

    In the raw Lady Gaga for Versace leaked pictures, the singer seems to be wearing little to no makeup and has a couple of bruises on her legs. It seems like her skin tone was perfected and her dark eye-circles were removed while her arms look slimmer in the official ads as well. 

    Even her hair was subjected to changes, from a dark golden to a lighter shade with white undertones. Perhaps the most perplexing fact about the new shots is the makeup, which appears to have been digitally added afterwards.

  • 6 Budget Friendly Beauty Fixes

    Published On 16 Apr 2014

    Learning a few cheap beauty tips and tricks can be helpful even if you're not forced to make adjustments to your beauty budget. After all, spending more efficiently is never a bad idea, especially when you can get the same results with little or no extra effort. Here a few budget friendly beauty fixes you can try in the comfort of your own home:

    1.Reduce redness the affordable way

    To reduce redness and calm irritated skin, look no further than your fridge. Milk is a great choice for reducing redness since it contains vitamin A, fats and amino acids which not only help calm the skin but also have exfoliating properties. Try soaking a clean washcloth in cold milk and placing it over your face for 10 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. Visine can also be a good choice for reducing redness in specific spots: simply apply a small amount of product on blemishes to visibly reduce redness.

  • What the Perfect Body Looks Like According to Men and Women
    Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
    Published On 16 Apr 2014

    Men's idea of the perfect female body and women's idea of the perfect male body are quite different, according to a new survey conducted by UK lingerie manufacturer Bluebella. 

    The company asked 500 men and 500 women to describe their idea of the perfect body for both genders by using celebrity features. Though there were notable differences between both genders' idea of what the perfect body is, the biggest discrepancies were between the notions of what is the perfect female body.

    The women surveyed chose a significantly slimmer figure than the men interviewed. Women's idea of the perfect body was fairly similar to a slim model's figure and included many features from some of the most influential style icons of today. 

    The answer to the question 'what do men want in a woman's body?' revealed a preference for a curvier figure overall.

    Published On 15 Apr 2014

    The Vera Wang spring 2015 bridal collection wasn't presented in the typical way. Rather than opting for a traditional runway show, the designer used a short film to highlight her vision for the new line. Despite the fairly dark yet oddly captivating theme that proved unusual for a wedding line and a far cry from the fall 2014 bridal line that brought a variety of pink gowns with textural rose details, the new Vera Wang wedding dresses for spring 2015 were inspired by the "lightness of being: delicate and disciplined. sensual and seductive".

    All of these characteristics were beautifully reflected in the design of the new gowns. The designer worked with delicate tulle, Chantilly lace, silk chiffon and organza to bring a romantic ethereal allure to each of the new 2015 Vera Wang wedding dresses. 

    Silhouette-wise, the designer focused on column dresses with minimal detailing, intricate princess and mermaid style gowns. A sense of edginess is also easily perceivable in the new Vera Wang bridal collection which includes several styles that would seriously test a bride's comfort zone.
