I’m seeing combat boots all over the place! What do you think about them? I think they would go really great with a pair of leg warmers, and leggings or skinny jeans. For more info on these boots click here.

You can find all kinds of beautiful leg warmers and boot cuffs at Grace and Lace.

 

Have a great fall Wednesday!

Celery Talk

Posted by on Oct 14, 2014 in Health & Food | 0 comments

Here is some great information about celery from the Care2 website. A little FYI celery is also wonderful for juicing! I highly recommend adding celery to your next shopping list!

  • Celery is a great choice if you are watching your weight. One large stalk contains only 10 calories! So, add celery to your shopping list and enjoy it in your salads, soups and stir-fries.
  • Celery reduces inflammation. If you are suffering from joint pains, lung infections, asthma, or acne, eating more celery will bring much-needed relief.
  • It helps you calm down: Celery for stress-relief? Oh yes! The minerals in celery, especially magnesium, and the essential oil in it, soothe the nervous system. If you enjoy a celery-based snack in the evening, you will sleep better.
  • It regulates the body’s alkaline balance, thus protecting you from problems such as acidity.
  • Celery aids digestion: some say celery tastes like “crunchy water,” and that is the reason it is so good for your digestive system.  The high water content of celery, combined with the insoluble fiber in it, makes it a great tool for easy passage of stool. Note: because celery has diuretic and cleansing properties, those with diarrhea should avoid eating it.
  • It contains “good” salts. Yes, celery does contain sodium, but it is not the same thing as table salt. The salt in celery is organic, natural and essential for your health.
  • It cares for your eyes. One large stalk of celery can deliver up to 10 percent of your daily need for Vitamin A, a group of nutrients that protects the eyes and prevents age-related degeneration of vision.
  • Celery reduces “bad” cholesterol: There is a component in celery called butylphthalide. It gives the vegetable its flavor and scent. Guess what: this component also reduces bad cholesterol! A Chicago University research shows that just two stalks of celery a day can reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) by up to 7 points!
  • It lowers blood pressure: An active compound called phthalides in celery has been proven to boost circulatory health. Raw, whole celery reduces high blood pressure.
  • Celery can combat cancer: Two studies at the University of Illinois show that a powerful flavonoid in celery, called luteolin, inhibits the growth of cancer cells, especially in the pancreas. Another study suggests that the regular intake of celery could significantly delay the formation of breast cancer cells.

Useful Tips:

Choose celery with upright stalks that snap when bent. The leaves should be fresh and crisp.  When selecting celery, remember this rule of thumb:  The darker the color, the stronger the flavor.

Freshly chopped celery retains its nutrients much better than if you chop and store it even for a few hours.

Steamed celery not only retains its flavor, but also most of its nutrients–up to 99 percent of them, in fact!

Do You Decorate For Fall?

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 in Decorating | 0 comments

Do you decorate for fall? I have always wanted to have beautiful fall decoration, but have never felt settled enough to buy any. I always tell myself when Chris and I plant roots, then I’ll get some decorations. In fact Chris and I have never bought or carved a pumpkin together. I’m thinking 2018 could be the lucky year! One thing that is great about fall decorations is that you can have them up for October and November (as longs as you stick with fall decor and stay away from Halloween decor). I do have some very sweet fall garland that my sister made me hanging on a mirror and I also have a sweet glass pumpkin my mom gave Chris and me, but that’s all she wrote… for now at least.

Have A Crisp Weekend

Posted by on Oct 10, 2014 in Fashion & Popular Products, Health & Food | 0 comments

Hey sweet little Turnips, what are your plans for this weekend? Chris and I are going to see the play “The Adventurers of Tom Sayer”, at my school tonight. Then I have to right a paper on it. I have not seen a play in years. Actually the last one I saw was with my dear friend Lelia, in North Carolina and we saw “The Wizard of Oz.” What ever you may be up to or not up to, I hope you have a very long relaxing weekend; and in your down time you might enjoy these links from around the web…
