A Brief Look into the History of High Heel Shoes by: YKG

Victoria Beckham and Gwen Stefani have all become high heel shoes style icons. Sarah Jessica Parker, most famously after demonstrating some truly amazing styles in Sex and the City all based around a pair of fabulous high heel shoes, played Carrie Bradshaw in the US hit show and was completely obsessed with high heel shoes, including branded shoes such as Manolo Blahniks and Jimmy Choos. Every girl who has a sense of style can relate to Carrie’s obsession with high heel shoes, and the well kept fashion secret that no outfit is an outfit without a pair of fabulous high heels. The high heel shoe; no other fashion or accessory has caused women more pain and suffering through the centuries, be it physical agony or financial insolvency. Yet still, the bond between women and high heel shoes remains untarnished. Many (especially men) have tried to understand the relationship between a girl and her high heel shoes, but to no avail! What can one say, other than the fact that it must be love? Shoes have been around for years, originally as a practical tool and mode of transportation. They arose from a need to walk places, but due to human nature and evolution, soon became a status symbol and a huge part of the fashion world. The nobles were the first to wear shoes to increase their height. Between the 15th to 17th century the longer and pointier the toes of your shoes were, the more higher your status in society was considered to be. These days, however, shoes are somewhat less of a status

symbol, with the whole demolition of the Kingship concept; and have become more readily available, with a larger range of more fun, fashionable, elegant and alternative styles! The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Different Types of High Heel Shoes High heel shoes come in a variety of styles, from peep toe high heel shoes, sling-back high heel shoes or stiletto high heel shoes. The list is endless but it shows how far styles have evolved within the high heel shoe industry. With such a high demand these days from women to have the perfect pair of high heel shoes with every outfit, high heels have become a must have accessory for every fashion conscious woman. What celebrities are known for their high heels? Celebrities such a Sarah Jessica Parker,

Some designers have unfortunately taken the concept of high heel shoes a little bit too far. East London born Alexander McQueen decided to experiment with high heel shoes that have not one, but two heels. Manolo Blahnik and Marc Jacobs decided to go the opposite way by designing high heel shoes, without a heel. So yes, there are many weird and wonderful styles of high heel shoes out there, but with such a range and varied selection, it is easy to see why there is such a hype around high heel shoes. Where is the Best Place to Buy High Heel Shoes? You can buy shoes almost anywhere nowadays, from boutiques, ordering off catalogs; in department stores to looking for vintage styles from thrift stores.

Kid Fit and Active

by Lisa Ruth

As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families.

Happy Birthday Marissa! Benefits of Being Active:

• strong muscles and bones • weight control • decreased risk of developing type 2 diabetes • better sleep

Be active yourself and support your kids’ interests. If you start this early enough, they’ll come to regard activity as a normal — and fun — part of your family’s

Five Ways to Burn More Fat & Tone Muscle With Weight Training by: Andrew Edwards Many people have the impression that the only benefit of weight training is to build muscle mass and get big. The truth is however, that weight training in its various forms is also great for burning fat and toning muscle. Even if you’ve never been to a gym or are opposed to the idea of lifting heavy weights amongst a crowd of sweaty guys please shelve your skepticism and read on. Let’s take a look at five ways weight training can help you get to where you want to go when it comes to fitness: 1) Cardio & Resistance Training. Most people try to burn fat by cardiovascular workout alone. Cardio is an indispensable part of any fat burning regimen, though better results will be achieved when some kind of resistance training is included. Consider arm and ankle weights for example. Any power walking session will increase in intensity and in turn burn more calories. 2) Burn fat while you sleep. Weight training burns fat by stressing out your muscles. This minor damage results in the ache you feel post workout. While your body is repairing the damage its consuming calories and as such burning fat. 3) Light weights & high reps: This is a great way to tone the muscle you already have. When you use lighter dumbbells for example to perform curls and a host of other exercises, you help stop the natural atrophy of your muscles that occurs as you get older. 4) Heavy weights & low reps. Lifting heavy weights less often is the key to muscle growth. Body builders want to stress their muscles to the point of failure, so they achieve the greatest increase in size during the recovery period. By stressing your muscles out in this way even once a week, you’re aiding in the growth, toning and fat loss processes. 5) Keep your muscles confused. The human body is extremely good at adapting itself to new conditions and physical demands. If you jog every day, your body rebuilds itself to perform that task. So too if you swim or do weight training. When you lift weights, your body will be stressed out initially, though grow accustomed to the practice over time.
