What brides should eat before THESE 5 wedding events to stay healthy and fit?

Before the wedding, every bride-to-be needs to take extra care of their diet plan to stay fit, healthy and active. They should consult a dietician to have a strict guideline for their foods. But they have to be extra cautious for the important days of the wedding and the diet chart may also change slightly depending on the occasion.

For example, for your wedding dress shopping or fitting, you don’t want to feel bloated, so you need to consume foods that are helpful to reduce bloating.

These are the foods to eat before the important wedding events:

Wedding dress shopping

While going for your wedding dress shopping, avoid any processed or ordered foods as they are high in sodium content which causes bloating. Rather, simply stick to homecooked foods. But remember, you can’t have too much cereals as the fibre content also causes bloating. So, eat low-fat Greek yoghurt with

Remote Work Is Here To Stay. So Why Not Do It In Style?

By now, many of us have accepted the idea that office life as we know it is never coming back. At least not for the foreseeable future. And even if it does, it may look very different to what we’re used to. Remote working has been our reality for the last six months, and it may well continue to be until a COVID-19 vaccine is developed.

Back when we thought this was only a temporary glitch, many of us made do with what we had. We bought standing desks and back pillows from Amazon and got creative, turning corners of our apartments and homes into makeshift home offices. (Sometimes with amusing results.)

But these setups were only ever meant to be temporary. Faced with a reality that will likely include years of remote work, many people are now seeking long-term solutions. Faced with a sluggish travel market, companies like Airbnb

The holiday season is already a booming time for online shopping. The COVID-19 pandemic only increases the likelihood that when people shop this holiday season, they will choose online shopping over brick-and-mortar stores. However, this also means there is likely to be a boom in online scams.

Already, multiple companies from outside the U.S. are advertising relatively unchecked on the internet, selling – or even just pretending to sell – all manner of products. The items are typically advertised using designs stolen from legitimate businesses and artists, often ripped off from Etsy, especially if those designs have been featured on popular sites like Bored Panda.

When people buy these scam products, what arrives is typically of low quality. That’s if anything ever arrives. Often the company just shutters and renames itself without sending

The trailblazing Vietnamese beauty queen pushing girls to stay in school

Skin-whitening, child marriage, a curtailed education: Vietnamese model and literacy campaigner H’Hen Nie has defied traditional expectations laid on her — and is now determined to show the next generation a different way. 

The 2017 Miss Universe Vietnam winner, who hails from the Ede ethnic minority group in the Central Highlands, was 14 years old when her farmer mother suggested she find a husband.

She was being led down the path of many poor, marginalised ethnic minority children in Vietnam — marrying young, dropping out of school, and having a slimmer shot of making it to positions of power compared to the country’s Kinh majority.

But H’Hen had other plans, explaining: “I was competitive and I loved to study. And I had lots of
