Sitting at Your Computer is straining..

We have all probably heard this, sitting at a computer all day can ruin your muscles, make you gain weight , cause carpel tunnel syndrome and so on and so on.  And it is true, sitting at a computer all day can strain your muscles and give you poor posture, it can cause back pain, wrist pain, leg pain, all sorts of pains. So how do you deal if your job demands you sit at a computer all day??


Unfortunately, with technology taking over, there is not much we can do to prevent from sitting at a computer, However, we can try to sit more correctly, but sitting up straight and not slouching over. Also, taking frequent but short breaks will help your eyes re focus, as well as help your body get less tense.

There are also other things outside of work you can do. After you are finished with work, try heading to the local gym for a Yoga class, or just getting in some type of exercise in will help your muscles not get tensed up and tight.

While you are on the clock, try standing to get some work done, choose a desk that is comfortable to sit and stand at or if laptops are an option take your work with you to a nearby standing desk. Ask your boss for  a more ergonomic chair (if it is in budget), or bring your own if you can.

Unfortunately, we can not get away from the computer, but there ARE ways we can help prevent the strain. Walking around the office and making some casual conversation with your co-workers will not only get you well known throughout the office, it will help your muscles relax throughout the day. Just try not to get the conversation too personal and keep it work focused as much as possible, you do not want to get in trouble with your boss!!

Do you have any tips on how to keep your posture at work?

Another example of how Motives Cosmetics help Women (and men) everywhere fee beautiful and earn money at the same time.

The CEO and creator of Motives, Loren Ridinger works extremely hard to get the word out on her cosmetic brand by interviewing with magazines, tv reporters and even has her own Blog

In recent years, actress and wife of Carmelo Anthony,LaLa Anthony joined forces with Motives to create a line for every woman in every shade. The Motives for LaLa line has taken off by a storm and has seen an uprising in sales for Motives.

The most powerful weapon Motives Cosmetics has, aside from all the professionals using it, is the average woman building her Motives Business.

Summer Cocktail Inspired Outfits

Hi my Lovelies!

What can be better than a Nice Refreshing Summer cocktail enjoyed on the beach? Why not get inspired by these girly cocktail drinks by creating a fun and chic Summer outfit? Here’s one to get you started:

Lets start with the Drink- Watermelon-Tequila Cocktails

1/4 cup water
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 cups diced seedless watermelon (1 pound)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 3/4 cups blueberries
3/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnish
1 1/4 cups silver tequila
How to:
1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a simmer with the sugar and stir over moderate heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute; let the sugar syrup cool.
2. In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Set a fine-mesh strainer over a bowl and strain the watermelon juice, pressing gently on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the pulp.
3. In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the lime juice, blueberries and mint leaves. Using a wooden spoon, lightly muddle the blueberries and mint. Add the watermelon juice and tequila. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours.
4. Pour the cocktail into tall ice-filled glasses. Garnish with the mint sprigs and serve

This Watermelon-Tequila drink would be the perfect Patriotic inspired drink/outfit for those Summer Holidays and BBQs.

How to Wear it:
