No, you do not always need to be covered in five layers of makeup to look impeccable. Neither do you need to be heavily accessorised all the time to look trendy. In fact, in this summer heat, the statement “simplicity is style” has never been more true.

In this heat, comfort is the main factor that needs to be taken into account while dressing up for any occasion. With the excessive heat and humidity, you should opt for clothes that do not feel stuffy. Sunscreen is a must, especially during the daytime. Also, carry sunscreen in your bag so that you can reapply it whenever necessary.

It is also important to consider the place and the occasion while getting ready. For example, if you are going somewhere where you have to do a lot of walking, it is probably best to skip the high heels and go for sneakers, sandals or ballet flats. No matter how good you are with heels, walking a long time in them is bad for your posture and can have lasting damage such as back pain when you grow older.

Casual
For casualwear, it’s better to stick to cotton or other fabrics that are equally comfortable. Whether you are wearing a kameez or Western wear, light colours such as pink, cream, or lavender are preferred during the day. Since they are more reflective, they feel cooler than their darker counterparts. With salwar kameez, floral prints or laces are a good option. For Western wear, shirts or tops matched with printed chinos or monochrome coloured jeggings are quite trendy.

With the heat, it is best to go simple on the makeup and avoid any products that aren’t waterproof and if you are going to be out for a long time, wear products that are long-lasting. For university, college, or even work, it’s probably better to just dab on a bit of face powder, and wear a light coloured lipstick. Finish off your look by filling in your eyebrows a bit, and that’s enough. It’s minimal and you avoid the chance of having smudged makeup at the end of the day.

Hangouts
Minimal effort is needed to dress up for hangouts as well. Casual wear is usually enough for hangouts, but you could go slightly heavy on the accessories. Metal jewellery is quite fashionable, especially for necklaces and bracelets. It is best to wear a minimal amount of makeup, and focus on just one of your features that you want to highlight. For instance, you could wear dark pink or even berry shades on your lips, and then forgo eye makeup. Or you could go slightly heavy on the eyes and wear a light nude shade on the lips.

Dates
This one really depends on the time, venue and occasion. For casual dates, clothes that you would usually wear for hangouts are enough, provided you accessorise properly. Looking flawless with minimal effort is the best option in this case. If it is slightly more serious, semi-formals are a good option, and once can never go wrong with a trendy kurti or a salwar kameez. Be it day or night, make sure you are wearing perfume that is long-lasting. Also, this is the perfect occasion to wear heels and accessorise with a nice bag or a purse.

Use foundation with light or medium coverage and make sure to set your makeup with translucent powder for a flawless finish. To add a tiny glow to your skin, use a slightly shimmery highlighter. However, it is very important to stick to your natural skin tone and its best to avoid all creamy products during the heat. You can go bold on the lips or on the eyes. If it is night, you can opt for the smoky eyes look. What’s really important though, is that you remain true to yourself and style yourself in a way that reflects your personality. Be confident and enjoy yourself, instead of fussing too much about your clothes and makeup.

Invites
For family invites or formal occasions, it’s important to dress up in semi-formal or formal attire. Georgette or chiffon may be the way to go, and if its night, you can go a bit heavy on the makeup. Whether you are into deep contouring or would prefer a light blush, invites are the perfect occasion for this. Once again, it is essential that you wear products that enhance your natural features instead of overshadowing them. If it is daytime, keep the makeup light and focus more on accessories and jewelleries. That way, there is less chance of ruining your makeup due to extreme sweating. Finish off your look with a nice pair of heels in the same colour as your clothes.

Weddings
Pick clothes made of fabrics that are comparatively comfortable in the summer. For example, you may want to forgo the velvet saree and pick something in silk for this season. Be glamorous, but do not go heavy on every aspect of your outfit. For example, if your clothes are heavily designed with stones, sequins and embroideries, it’s better to go light on the jewellery and only wear bold earrings to finish off your look. Alternatively, with clothes that are comparatively simpler, wear a lot of jewellery to make up for it. Whether you opt for a saree or salwar kameez, a pair of bangles or a nose pin will always add a sense of festivity to your look.

You have full freedom to go heavy on the makeup here, but make sure you wear products that work well for you even in the heat. Wear your makeup according to the saree or the salwar kameez that you are wearing. Finish off your look with a pair of high heels and a glittery purse.

An Indian man obsessed with setting Guinness World Records got 366 flags tattooed on his body and had all his teeth removed so he could put nearly 500 drinking straws and more than 50 burning candles in his mouth.

Har Parkash Rishi, who claims to have set more than 20 records, now calls himself Guinness Rishi.

Born in 1942 in a cinema hall in the capital, New Delhi, Rishi first got into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1990 when, with two friends, he rode a scooter for 1,001 hours.

The passion to get his name in the record book led him to perform some bizarre acts, including delivering a pizza from New Delhi to San Francisco and gulping a bottle of tomato ketchup in less than four minutes.

He even got his family involved – his wife Bimla holds a 1991 record for writing the world’s shortest will: “All to Son”.

While it is the tattoos on his body, more than 500 in all, that brought him fame, Rishi, an auto parts manufacturer by profession, says the toughest one was stuffing the straws in his mouth.

“I am the world record holder of 496 straws in my mouth … For that record, I needed space, I had to remove every tooth so that I could put maximum straws in my mouth,” Rishi told Reuters Television before re-enacting the feat on camera.

He is now getting images of global leaders tattooed on his body to add to images of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Barack Obama, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of India’s independence movement.

Visiting the tourist attractions in London is quite exciting and interesting as it comes with lots of fun and enjoyment. One such destination is the London Eye which is a large Ferris wheel by the south bank of the River Thames in Central London. This Ferris wheel, adorned with lights, takes about half an hour to complete a full circle, or one revolution.

The diameter of the wheel is 394 feet. This is the third largest wheel in the world after the High Roller (America) and the Singapore Flyer (Singapore). The London Eye is also the largest wheel in Europe. Visitors get a half an hour ride with a view of the beautiful Thames and its surroundings from almost 400 feet above the river water level.

My brother and I decided to go on the London Eye, and as we wanted to ride it in the evening, we booked tickets for the 6 pm ride. One can book tickets every half an hour starting from 10 am to 8:30 pm every day, upon availability. As we arrived early with our pre-booked tickets, we planned to take a tour around. The entrance and surroundings, especially the array of trees along the road leading to the entrance, were adorned with blue colourful lights.

The view was indeed majestic as it was during sunset, thus a beautiful and eye-soothing atmosphere was created along the river bank, seemingly to give visitors a warm welcome. The wheel rotates clockwise if seen from the other side of the river. As our 6pm ride period started, the security and the curators ushered the visitors to get into a line. We got into the queue and went through the security check.

As the wheel is always slowly rotating, the visitors must get on it in its rotating motion. The London Eye’s rotating motion can be compared with the speed of a typical escalator. The wheel has rotating motion of almost 10 inches per second.

The big wheel has 32 capsules attached to it, and each capsule can hold up to 25 visitors. We waited at the standing platform for a capsule to come close to us and we, in no time with a small leap, got onto it. Security locked the gate securely from the outside as soon as a specific number of visitors boarded the capsule.

The capsules are made of see-through glass, except for the floor, which is opaque – much to my brother’s relief due to his fear of heights. The egg-shaped capsules also have built-in rounded seats. Visitors can enjoy the beauty by leaning on the capsule wall except for the door area.

As the wheel was slowly taking us upwards, I could start seeing the things clearly. Things that are seen from the ground look totally different when seen from London Eye. The long Thames flowing windingly with bridges built across it is the main beauty. The Tower Bridge, the Millennium Bridge, and the Waterloo Bridge are the main thoroughfare bridges that are seen clearly. There were boats and yachts floating on the river for the visitors wishing to have a fleeting journey on the Thames. The British Parliament, Westminster Abbey, the Whitehall and the Big Ben are also visible.

By the time we reached at the top of the wheel, we found the view more appealing. We started to come downwards when an announcement was made to urge the visitors to stand at the photo-zone area, where we to be photographed. As the wheel completed the circle we got down the same way we had got into. The photo that was taken is offered to the visitors if they want to buy it upon exiting.

Ramadan begins, overshadowed by conflict for many in the Middle East http://viral71.com/archives/34 Sun, 26 Jun 2016 05:55:03 +0000 http://viral71.com/?p=34 Muslims around the world began observing Ramadan on Monday, Islam’s holy month during which believers abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours.

Muslims around the world began observing Ramadan on Monday, Islam’s holy month during which believers abstain from eating and drinking during daylight hours.

But among those displaced by fighting in Iraq and Syria, many families say that tough living conditions will make it difficult for them to participate this year.

Falluja, already suffering water, food and medicine shortages, is being bombed by Iraqi forces, allied Shi’ite militias and aircraft from the US-led coalition, in an offensive to retake the city from Islamic State militants.

Many families have fled to a nearby makeshift camp, where they say they have little electricity to keep them cool in the blistering heat of the daytime fasting hours, and little food to break the fast at dusk.

“Who can fast this year? Doesn’t someone who fasts need to eat? We have nothing,” said 75-year-old Shukriya Na’im, in comments echoed by many others in the camp.

“We used to lead a comfortable life when we were at our home. We used to fast and welcome Ramadan with happiness but now our life in the tents is so hard, diseases are rampant and it is too hot,” Sana Khamis, also displaced, said.

In Damascus, many complained that economic hardship caused by Syria’s five-year conflict made it hard to enjoy the month’s festive spirit.

Ramadan traditionally begins the morning after the sighting of the crescent moon. In most countries it began on Monday, although some Muslims in countries including Oman, Pakistan, Iraq and Lebanon – were due to start a day later. The daily fast often ends with a large evening meal.

My bet is that more than one man reading this can relate to a scenario where he did everything he thought was ‘right’ to get or keep a woman’s attention, but ultimately he ended up frustrated and confused after pushing her away.
