Spring is here, which means it’s time to bury the sequined tops, skirts and dresses, and update your closets with what’s in this season.
There's no easier way to get the wow factor than with a maxi dress. Wear at the beach or the park with and gladiator flats.
The Seventies are back: high-waisted denim and flouncy silk dresses and blouses are super!
Ankle boots! They're not easy to wear. The proportion of an ankle boot with a mid-calf, full skirt is all wrong: ankle boots look best as part of a leggy look, either with short skirt, skinny jeans or leggings. One of the easiest ways to wear ankle boots is to pair black shoes with black tights (and a black dress if you really want to go monochromatic.) Wearing ankle boots with socks is a practical idea (much less slippery than wearing with hose, less sweaty than wearing barefoot), but a peek of sock under a pair of slouchy casual ankle boots is cute.
Dark Denim Dress: Wear it bare-legged with wedges or paired with leggings on cooler days.
Plaid Shirt: a borrowed-from-the-boys look we love for this spring!
Hat trend! hats can be made of straw or of materials other than straw (cloth boaters with a flower pattern), and many of the hats have more decorations than just a simple ribbon (for example, ribbons with flowers or bows attached to them).
White VS Yellow: Yellow will be most popular color during the springtime among the favorite colors of 2010. Even though white is the most prefered color for the springtime, yellow will often be seen everywhere. Mimosa (the orange juice and champagne yellow) was named as the color of the year! You might not prefer to wear a bright yellow color though. In this case, I advise you to look for more subtle shades such as chartreuse or mustard.
Here it is a little quiz to know yourself better! Answer 'Yes' or 'No' for each question! Concentrate…
Do you often feel the pain of others?
Is your mood highly dependent on the moods of people around you?
Does 'reading-between-the-lines' come easily to you?
Are you very sensitive to noises around you?
Are you easily scared or startled?
Are you an animal lover?
Do you have hermit qualities, preferring solitude over parties?
Is care giving a natural response you give to anyone hurting?
Are you easily moved by an amazing song, film, or piece of art?
Do you consider yourself to be in harmony with nature: earth, water, skies?
Are you a good listener, compassionate to the needs of others?
Do you have an artistic bent or creative nature?
Now, count the number of times you answered “Yes”:
Yes: 0- 3 out of 12
So you're not exactly the most sensitive soul on the planet. You can get through pretty much any situation - and you expect others to as well!! You have a thick skin, and that makes you incredibly tough. In this way you’re far from pains, but also from passions…
Yes: 4- 7 out of 12
In general, you don't let your senses overwhelm you. You're pretty practical, and you're good at blocking out what's going on around you. However, you are still sensitive enough to enjoy all the beautiful things in the world!
Yes: 8- 11 out of 12
As far as sensitivity goes, you're a lot more in tune than most people. You can't help but be touched by what's around you - good and bad. But when things do get really bad around you, you are strong enough not to break down!
Yes: 12 out of 12
You’re very sensitive! You have wonderful imagination, you are creative, curious, a great organizer and problem solver. You are extremely conscientious but sometimes you care too much about what people think and you feel insecure. Tip: you’re special, this must be your strength!
Take a look at this list of study tips and develop more effective and efficient study habits to help you improve your overall grades in school!
Write Down Every Assignment
The most logical place to write down your assignments is in a planner, but you might prefer to keep a to-do list in a simple notebook or in your cell phone note pad. It doesn't really matter what tool you use, but it is absolutely essential to your success to write down every single assignment, due date, test date, and task.
Organize With Color
Devise your own color-coding system to keep your assignments and your thoughts organized. You may select a single color for each class (like science or history) and use that color for your folder, your highlighters, your sticky notes, and your pens. You'll be surprised to discover how much strong organization skills can change your life!
Establish a Study Zone at Home
Take the time to assess your individual style and your real needs and plan for the perfect study place. After all, if you can’t concentrate, you certainly can’t expect to learn very well. Students are different. Some need a completely quiet room free from interruptions when they study, but others actually study better listening to quiet music in the background or taking several breaks. Find a place to study that fits your specific personality and learning style. Then stock your study space with school supplies that will help you avoid last-minute emergencies.
Try to not spend more than one hour at a time on any one subject. Try not to spend more than 20 to 30 minutes on memorization. Short blocks of time are the best method for studying and retaining information.
Similar subjects... separate times!
Try to study similar subjects at separate times. It is important to separate study periods for similar subjects. This adds variety to specific study times and keeps your brain alert and active.!
Eat some food to give you energy to study but avoid consuming excess sugar which will make you hyper and will make it more difficult to study.
Listening to relaxing music such as classical or jazz on a low volume can relieve some of the boredom of studying.
Prepare Yourself for Test Days
You know that it's important to study for test days, right? But there are other things you should consider in addition to the actual material that the test will cover. What if you show up for test day and the room is freezing cold? For many students, this would cause enough of a distraction to interrupt concentration. That leads to bad choices and bad answers. Plan ahead for heat or cold by layering your clothing.
Take Fabulous Notes
There are a few tricks to taking fabulous notes that really help when it comes to studying. If you’re visual person, you should make as many doodles on your paper as you can. Useful doodles, that is. As soon as you realize that once topic relates to another, comes before another, is the opposite of another, or has any kind of connection to another—draw a picture that makes sense to you. Sometimes the information will not sink in until and unless you see it in an image. There are also certain code words to look out for in a lecture that can indicate that your teacher is giving you the relevance or the context of an event. Learn to recognize key words and phrases that your teacher deems important.
When you put things off a lot, you end up putting things off until it's too late from time to time. It's that simple. When you procrastinate, you take the chance that nothing will go wrong at the last minute--but in the real world, things do go wrong. So how can you battle the urge to put things off? Start with trying to recognize that a feisty little voice that lives inside every one of us. It tells us it would be more fun to play a game, eat, or watch TV when we know better. Don’t fall for it!!
