EVERYDAY HABITS THAT CAUSE SAGGING BREASTS

It is a pure common sense that as the years go by the breasts become a little saggy. A recent study published in the journal Genome Biology, revealed that breast tissue ages 2 – 3 years faster compared to the rest of the body. Even though there isn’t much you can do to change the genetic factors, there are still few steps you can take to at least keep them from sagging prematurely.If you just avoid these everyday habits, you can contribute greatly in keeping your breasts looking young for as long as possible.

1. Smoking

Smoking is a well known cause for skin’s loss of elasticity, which causes the breasts to drop. It worsens the blood circulation and reduces the amount of collagen in the skin. This makes the skin become weaker and age faster.Smoking causes a lot of other health issues not only for you but for everyone around you.

2. Adopting bad posture and not exercising

It’s very important to keep your chest muscles strong and exercise. However, some back – and – forth repetitive motions, like for example in running, can make your breasts go saggy, as they help breakdown breast collagen faster. Make sure you pay attention to your posture throughout the day and support your breasts when having a high – impact exercise session. Make your breasts stand up proudly while walking straight.

3. Crash dieting 

It is very important to the health of your breasts to have a balanced diet. The yo – yo effect that makes you lose enormous amounts of weight in a short period of time, only to gain it back on later, strains your skin tissue. Repeatedly gaining and losing weight has been shown to cause your breasts to drop. The skin tissue can’t indefinitely snap back into place when the weight comes back off again, but it will stretch to accommodate the weight gain. So try as hard as you can to maintain a steady weight or a proper nutrition in a sustainable, healthy way.

4. Wearing a bra that doesn’t fit

This situation is more common among women all over the world, than you think.  Most bras will eventually stretch over time with normal wear, because they are made of flexible materials. But the primary purpose of the bra is to give support. Wearing an all – fitting bra can lead to breast sagging as the more your breast move around, the more stressed collagen and breast skin becomes. First you need to figure out what your bra size is, so that the cups can hold your breasts adequately. Make sure you measure your bra size, which can be easily done in a lingerie shop, because about 80% of women are wearing a bra that is not their perfect fit.This discussion about the pros and cons of wearing a bra can go on and on forever, but what both groups agree is that if you wear a bra it must be properly fitted.

5. Not protecting yourself from the sun

The cleavage and the breasts absorb their share of the sun’s UV rays in particular, and they can get burnt easily. This can make the skin wrinkle, age prematurely and damage it. Don’t over – expose your skin and protect yourself from the sun. Also, sunscreens are not the magic solution and especially the high – factor ones, which contain potential chemical dangers.

A SMILING CHRISTMAS: REACHOUT22PROJECT GIVES BACK TO AJEGUNLE COMMUNITY


“When others are celebrating during the festive season, they are salivating…But now, with ‘Smiling Christmas’ their story has changed” – Omoyele Isaac success

Omoyele Isaac success is the founder of the Reachout 22 Project. ‘The Smiling Christmas’ is a concept of Reachout22 Project for vulnerable children. It was developed to put smiles on the faces of vulnerable families through the provision of Christmas supplies such as food, clothing, and gift packs.
Isaac Success and Omobolanle Bisiriyu with the children
On December 22, 2014, the Reachout22project team members as well as volunteers stormed the streets of Ajegunle with holiday surprises for several families in the impoverished neighbourhood. The team visited the homes of students whom they had tutored during the 2014 school year and surprised their family with Christmas supplies such as rice, vegetable oil, maggi, non-alcoholic wine, tin tomato, clothing, and gift packs. The students who benefited from the holiday surprises were then taken to the park, cinema, as well as a shopping mall.

Speaking on the event, Omobolanle Bisiriyu (Project Manager) said: “We believe that this would give them healthy self-esteem as children because most of the families where beneficiaries of Reachout22 project come from find it difficult to feed especially during the festive period.” Speaking on the event, Belynda Oduware (Project Welfare Director) stated: “We reached our goal of making this Christmas a Smiling one for vulnerable families…No doubt it was a memorable experience.”



 
The smiling Christmas concept was supported by Rubies n Sapphire, Planet Heart Foundation, Olamild Entertainment, MyPassionMyLife Media, World Impact League NG amongst other Individuals.

BE INSPIRED! HOUSE OF TARA CEO, TARA FELA DUROTOYE FEATURES ON CNN AFRICAN VOICES


Tara Fela-Durotoye, Chief Executive Officer of Africa's leading beauty brand, House of Tara - who is iconic for setting up the first make up studio and establishing Nigeria's first make up school in 2004 - spoke to CNN's African Voices, a weekly show that highlights Africa's most engaging personalities, exploring the lives and passions of people who are shaping change in Africa.

Since hosting the first ever gathering of makeup professionals in Nigeria, Makeup In Nigeria Conference (MINC) in 2014, Tara has made several appearances on premium global platforms including the New York Forum Africa (NYFA), France24 and Africa 24 by Reuters.In this interview, Tara shares deep secrets behind her passion, building a business from scratch in Africa and how she has used as a tool for empowering young women to build businesses whilst adding value to the country.“My story became one of inspiration to others of the possibilities that exist in our country, don't just get a job, do something that is tied to a purpose. It should be all about purpose," said Tara Fela-Durotoye. “I started a mentorship program to mentor young girls because to make impact, I need to share my story with the next generation and I always tell my mentees that it’s their responsibility as women to develop other women.

Speaking on the brand's achievements, she said; “Today we have about 14 make-up schools across the country where people have been trained to become make-up artists. I can confidently say that for 80 % of the make-up artists that are active players in the industry today, either working as entrepreneurs or working within other beauty brands, are trained by House of Tara.

ENERGIZE YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY!

Did you know?

Eating healthy foods and staying physically active can help you keep up with the demands of your busy life. Moving more and eating better may help you take better care of yourself and be there for the people who depend on you.
If you are overweight and inactive, you may be more likely to develop
  • certain forms of cancer
  • heart disease
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke
  • type 2 diabetes (high blood sugar)



Why move more and eat better?

You may improve your health if you move more and eat better, but that's not the only reason to be active and make healthy food choices. You can also
  • charge up your body for work, play, and family
  • feel better about yourself and manage stress better
  • look better in your clothes
  • set a good example for your children and your friends
  • tone your body (without losing your curves)
Your family, friends, and coworkers can be great sources of support as you adopt healthier habits. Ask them to join you in healthy eating and physical activity. Being healthy is important for them, too! By making healthy choices together, you may find it is easier to move more and eat better.

Should I talk to my health care provider before starting an exercise program?

Most people do not need to see their health care provider before getting physically active. If you have heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis (weak bones), or obesity, talk to your health care provider before starting a vigorous physical activity program.
You do not need to talk to your provider before you start a less intense activity like walking. If you have been inactive for some time, plan to walk at least twice a week for a month. Once you meet this goal, add another day or make your walk longer.

How much physical activity do I need?

Regular physical activity can be fun and help you feel great. To improve your health, aim for at least 150 minutes per week (30 minutes a day on 5 days) of moderately intense aerobic activity. This type of aerobic activity, like brisk walking or dancing, speeds up your heart rate and breathing. To lose weight and keep it off, you may need more: Aim for 300 minutes per week (an hour a day for 5 days).
On at least 2 days per week, also try activities that strengthen your muscles. Examples include heavy gardening (digging and shoveling) and exercises that use hand weights.
For best results, spread out the physical activity throughout the week. Even 10 minutes at a time counts!

How can I handle barriers to becoming more physically active?

Adding more physical activity to your life may seem a challenge. Here are some common barriers and solutions.

"I don't have time for physical activity."

You can "sneak" it into your day a few minutes at a time. Get started by making these small changes in your daily routine:
  • Add three 10-minute walks to your day, if you can do so safely near your work or home.
  • Take regular breaks from sitting at the computer or watching TV. Get up, move, and stretch by lifting your hands up over your head. Twist side to side.
  • Schedule your workouts as you would a hair or work appointment and stick to your plan.
  • Start taking the stairs instead of the elevator whenever you have the option (be sure the stairs are well lit).
  • If your job requires a lot of sitting, add a walk around the block to one of your daily breaks.

TIP

Daily activities can cause salt buildup in your hair. To remove salt, shampoo with a mild, pH-balanced product at least once a week. For more tips on keeping natural, relaxed, or braided hairstyles looking good during and after exercise, check out Hair Care Tips for Sisters On The Move. See the Resources section for a website link.

"I'm going to ruin my hairstyle."

If you avoid physical activity because you do not want to ruin your hairstyle, try
  • a natural hairstyle
  • a short haircut
  • a style that can be wrapped or pulled back
  • braids, twists, or locs

"It's too expensive."

There are ways to be active that are free or lower in cost. You can
  • check out programs that may be offered at your workplace or local place of worship, like dance classes or walking programs.
  • find a local park or school track where you can walk or run.
  • walk in a mall or a free museum.
  • work out with videos or DVDs in your home. You can find these at bookstores, your local library, or online. Or try swapping with friends.

"Physical activity is a chore."

It can be fun!
  • Be active with your kids—hike, jump double Dutch, play flag football, play tag, toss a softball, or visit the zoo. Physical activity is good for them, too.
  • Do things you enjoy, like biking, gardening, playing sports, or swimming.
  • Get a friend to try out a dance class with you. Walk or take an exercise class with a friend or a group. This way, you can cheer each other on, have company, and feel safer when you are outdoors.
  • Use your daily workouts as time-outs just for yourself.
  • Enjoy friendly competition with family and friends by setting a weight-loss challenge.
  • Give your workouts more meaning by setting goals to do a walk or run for a cause you support.

How can I create a healthier eating plan?

A healthy meal may include vegetables and fruits and small portions of protein and whole grains (breads, pastas, and rice). Here are some ideas on how to create a healthier eating plan for you and your family.
When planning meals for the week, think about including the following:
  • a salad or other vegetables (eat "from the rainbow" of colors)
  • fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products
  • fruits (choose a variety of vibrant colors)
  • lean beef or pork, chicken, seafood, eggs, tofu, or beans
  • whole grains, like brown rice, oatmeal, whole-wheat bread, and whole-grain cornmeal

What if I can't handle lactose?

If you cannot digest lactose (the sugar found in milk), try lactose-free milk or yogurt. You can also get calcium from calcium-fortified cereal, juices, and drinks made from soy or nuts. Eating dark leafy vegetables like collard greens and kale and canned fish with soft bones like salmon can also help you meet your body's calcium needs.
Treats are fine once in a while. Just don't make treat foods like candy, desserts, pizza, and potato chips an everyday choice. Limit sweet treats to special occasions, and keep portions small.
Remember that alcohol, juices, soda, and other sweet drinks contain a lot of sugar and are high in calories.

How can reading the Nutrition Facts label help me?

Reviewing the Nutrition Facts label can help you choose foods that are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals and low in these nutrients, which federal guidelines recommend Americans reduce:
  • saturated fats and trans fats that are solid at room temperature—like butter, margarine, and lard—which are not heart healthy
  • sodium (salt)—aim for fewer than 1,500 mg a day (about 2/3 teaspoon)
  • sugar

What is the Nutrition Facts label?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Nutrition Facts label appears on most packaged foods. It tells you how many calories and servings are in a box or can. The label also shows how many nutrients like fat, fiber, sodium, and sugar are in one serving of food. You can use these facts
  • to track your calorie intake and number of servings
  • to make healthy food choices by selecting items lower in salt, fats, sugar, and higher in fiber and vitamins

How can I handle barriers to healthy eating?

Eating healthy foods may seem hard when you do not have time to cook or you are on a tight budget. Try these tips to get past barriers that keep you from eating well.

"I don't have time to plan healthy meals."

Eating well doesn't have to take a lot of time. Here are some ways that you and your family can eat better:
  • Fuel up every day with breakfast. Try a whole-grain cereal like bran flakes with fat-free or low-fat milk or yogurt. Enjoy some fruit with your breakfast, too, like bananas, berries, or peaches.
  • Invite your kids to join you on the weekend to plan, shop for, and cook a healthy family meal. Make it a game! Children may be more likely to eat dishes that they help prepare.
  • When grocery shopping, choose whole grains like whole-wheat bread and brown rice. These are higher in fiber, protein, and nutrients than refined white grains. They also keep you full longer.

"Eating well is too expensive."

You don't have to spend a lot of money to eat well:
  • Avoid buying single portions (like pudding, snacks, or yogurt). Instead, buy in bulk and divide into smaller portions as needed.
  • Check newspaper ads for grocery specials. Clip coupons or print them from websites.
  • Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season (they are cheaper at that time).
  • Try canned beans like black, butter, kidney, or pinto beans. They are loaded with protein, cost less than meat, and make quick and easy additions to your meals.

How can I eat well when away from home?

Here are some ways to make healthy choices when you are on the go:
  • Avoid heavy gravies, salad dressings, or sauces. Leave them off or ask for them on the side so you can control how much you eat.
  • Order a grilled chicken salad or sandwich with whole-grain bread.
  • Share a meal with a friend or take half of it home.
  • Take healthy snacks with you to work, like apples or fat-free yogurt with fruit.

TIP

Solid fats like butter, margarine, and shortening can have high levels of saturated or trans fats, which are not heart healthy. Instead of solid fats, choose liquid fats or soft margarines. Sources of liquid fats include plant-based oils like corn, cottonseed, safflower, soybean, and sunflower.

I can do it!

Set goals and move at your own pace to reach them. Ask your family, friends, and coworkers to help you. They can join you, encourage you, help you with setbacks, and be there to celebrate your successes! No matter what, keep trying. You can do it!

BENEFITS OF RESTARTING YOUR PHONE REGULARLY

From time to time, your phone may lose connection with the service provider's network, similar to how a computer may lose connection to a wireless network. A device restart can help in resolving network issues like calling problems, poor signal, slow data speeds, and messaging issues.

Restarting your phone regularly can also help improve performance by closing all of the open background applications that may be slowing down performance.

Our recommendation:

▶ Restart your phone on a weekly basis.

▶ If you are having trouble with your phone, a restart (turning it off and then waiting at least 10 seconds to turn it back on) may help clear the issue.

THE HEAT GOES ON - MALTA GUINNESS TAKES GAME ON TO EBUTE METTA IN LAGOS

Episode 3 of the Malta Guinness Game On Reality show made its debut on Sunday, January 4 on NTA, AIT and Spice TV. This episode in the running debate of Fashion versus Football saw the contestants taking part in tasks which showed the depth of their skill. Keeping with the theme of bringing the show close to the people, the task for Team Football was to renovate an exercise pitch in the community of Ebute Metta, while that of Team Fashion was to renovate a photo studio in the same community.

Both teams first of all received a visit from top designer, Leo who gave them a pep talk on thinking outside of the box and getting their 'Game On'. Team Fashion's challenge involved renovating a photo studio and they were quite overwhelmed at the extent of dilapidation at first, but quickly got over it and strategized on the next line of action.Team fashion set out to remodel the dilapidated photo studio and upgrade it to a modern, well equipped studio.

Team fashion contestants were excited with the transformation going on in the place they were living considering the place was a mess initially. They all got involved with the renovation of the studio, making it habitable and ready for professional use.Team football's challenge was to renovate Evans Square, a football pitch in Ebute Metta. Team football however was not in harmony like team fashion as an argument ensued between Olumide and Isa on who should visit the stadium for materials to be used in the task. They were finally able to set aside their differences and visited the stadium for equipment as a group. Hopefully, the team spirit will carry through to Episode 4 airing this Sunday the 11th.There was huge excitement when team captain for football, Dan Amokachi arrived in the community to check on his team and advise his team on how to carry out the challenge.

Meanwhile, Coach Isa from team football paid a visit to team fashion to see the level of progress they had made.There was a large turnout at team football's exercise pitch, with a lot of excitement from having the facility renovated. For this challenge a select number of members of the community were again allowed to judge which of the teams excelled in the task. In the end Team Fashion won this week's challenge while Team Football had to vote out the team mate who the considered the weakest link.Sadly, the amiable coach Jerry was voted out of the competition. His team members complained that he had been disagreeable on the task and caused more division than team work. This is quite unusual considering that football is a team sport.

The show continues this Sunday with Episode 4 on AIT and Spice TV 5-6pm. NTA 4.30 -5.30pm. Watch also repeat broadcasts on ONTV, Thursday 6.30 – 7.30 pm and on Sound City on Saturdays 7-8pm.Which team will win the next episode?

MO ABUDU IS FORBES AFRICA'S MOST SUCCESSFUL WOMAN

Executive Chairman and CEO of Ebony Life TV, Africa’s first Global Black Entertainment and Lifestyle network,  Mo Abudu was announced on Thursday 1 January, 2015 by Forbes  as Africa’s Most Successful Woman of The Year.

Mo, who has been described by international news outlets as ‘Africa’s Africa’, is keen in her resolve to rewrite Africa’s story.

In a recent interview with Mfonobong Nsehe of Forbes, she recounts her entrepreneurial journey and reflects on the lessons she has learned along the way.

Speaking on her entrepreneurial journey and lessons she has learned along the way, she said “This kind of afro-pessimism simply fuelled a burning, deep-seated desire in my subconscious to one day help to rewrite the African story; to get people to talk about the issues that affect our society and to tell the African narrative in a contemporary and interesting way; to change the perception the world had of us; to let the world know that in spite of our challenges as a developing continent, Africans are not a bunch of savages but mostly a breed of gifted and remarkable people.”

Also recently honoured with a Doctorate degree at Babcock University, spoke at MIPCOM 2014's Global Channel Distribution Day at Auditorium Esterel, Palais des Festivals.
“Anyone who wishes to be an entrepreneur must know that bright ideas are great, however, they are not even half of the work; execution is everything. Yes, as the saying goes, ‘there is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come’, but when that time comes, you must be prepared to bleed sweat, tears and blood to bring your ideas to life.”  Mo Abudu responded, when asked to give an advice to people who will like to follow her entrepreneurial footsteps.

She continued saying, “For women, never ever see your gender as a handicap. Never think yourself inferior. Be ready to do twice the work for half the usual reward. When the door isn’t opened, kick down the door. Take the regular harassment and other obstacles women face in stride. In fact, be prepared for them. Be prepared to be told off, to be told you are not good enough, to go unrewarded for even doing the same work your male counterpart has done. Work with your passion, let it consume and drive you. Do not be distracted. On down days, it will keep you going. Also, surround yourself with like minds. In fact, you should exhaustively curate those who will go along with you on your journey. I can’t say that enough.”

Other women who have been listed in past are Divine Ndhlukula, Founder and Managing Director of SECURICO, one of Zimbabwe’s largest security companies, Khanyi Dhlomo, a 36- year-old South African media mogul, unconventional visionary, and a builder of big dreams.

TILLA DEBUTS “MAWOBE” VIDEO STARRING MTV SHUGA’S DORCAS SHOLA FAPSON

Following a successful premiere at Industry Nite last month, veteran Pop star Tilla and Shina Peller’s Aquila Records, are proud to present the brand new music video for Tilla’s new single “Mawobe”, starring MTV Shuga’s Dorcas Shola Fapson and award-winning dance trio D3 Dancers. The exciting new video was shot on location in London and directed by Alexx Adjei, with cameo appearances from the likes of Eddie Kadi, BOJ (DRB LasGidi) and Kida Kudz among others.

Produced by OY Beatz, Bizzouch and Phantom, with Suka Sounds adding his Midas touch in the mixing and mastering, “Mawobe” is a welcomed return to form for Tilla - formerly known asTillaman - who has previously brought us classic hits sich as “Puyanga”, “Fori Fori” and “Ko Ma Roll”. With its glorious drum patterns, catchy melody, lush horns and synth arrangements, “Mawobe” is captivating and infectious, and the instant favourite that fans and critics alike have been waiting for since “Ko Ma Roll”.

"DEMMY" & "GT DA GUITARMAN" FREESTYLE TOGETHER; "TUALE [Reloaded]" OUT NOW WITH VISUALS

Following their individual stage performances during an event held for Property Mart at The Grenadines Homes, Citiview Estate-Arepo, Demmy and GT Da Guitarman got together for an awesome freestyle; this freestyle is note-worthy as both artistes never rehearsed prior to recording - a major highlight would be for Demmy, who handled and played the guitar himself whilst having GT Da Guitarman freestyle over the notes played.

Demmy, who's set to release the official visuals for his "Tuale [Reloaded]" offering before the year runs out sure seems to be quite multi-talented as most of his teeming fans would be glad to see him actually playing an instrument, a quality that makes him not just a recording artiste, but an all-round entertainer; so much can also be said for GT Da Guitarman who recently released his "Baked" album - do we see a collaboration between these 2 in the nearest future?

 In a bid to end the year 2014, Demmy also lets out the reloaded version of his 2011-released offering titled "Tuale," which in grand style, is being issued with an official visual as directed by Big John; listen, watch and share your thoughts. | ENJOY!!!
