Hosting Your Own Party

If you’re hosting a party, you might feel a bit pressured to make this party a success. But looking into a few essential details can help make a party worth remembering without the host over exhausting herself! A day before the scheduled party, prepare the entrees by washing the lettuce, making the dipping sauce and start baking the dessert. Some even prepare main courses before hand and simply work at reheating them when the party starts. If you are thinking of serving your guest with seafood, there are surely lobster for sale at the nearest wet market. Alternatively, you can search for lobster order online. Its easy, convenient and they'll deliver right in your doorsteps.

If you are up for balloon decorations, you can prepare them a night before so you'll have time to pump and design them.

Table setting, decorations except for fresh flowers of course, can be taken-cared of the day or night before. You can work at preparing a certain main course and order or buy ready to cook appetizers so you won’t feel so harassed when the party in on the way. Once you've prepared everything, its your turn to beautify and pamper yourself.  Surely not nice to greet your visitors with a haggard face. Just sit back and enjoy your party!

Trust Dukan

Celebrating its two year online birthday just last month, the Dukan healthy diet plan is becoming more popular than ever. It is no secret that every diet has its downfalls and critics but it is also no secret that the Duchess of Cambridge has successfully used Dukan in the past...

As it is a new year, many people will be embarking on new diets and may have already found that a select few don’t work for them. With Dukan, the simple four phase programme is easy to understand and the website is cutting edge in terms of personal support and development. The first Dukan diet phase is Attack which is an all-out cleanse of your system; high-protein foods and rigorous exercise. It sounds horrific, but this is the hardest part of the diet so survive this and you are well on your way to becoming a slimmer, healthier version of you. For this first phase, you eat purely high-protein meals with ingredients from the 100 safe foods list. This list is made up of 72 animal-based foods and 28 plant-based foods and at each stage you are allowed to eat a wider variety. This is to make sure you don’t become too bored of the same foods throughout the diet and to provide you with the correct nutrients at the appropriate time.


Following the Attack phase there is the Cruise phase to get you down to your True Weight (calculated using your ideal and perfect weights) and the Consolidation phase which settles you into your new self. It is more than common for people who have lost weight to gain it very shortly after their weight loss plan has ended which is why Dukan have their final phase, Stabilisation. This ensures that you have the skills to keep feeding yourself healthily and allows you to keep as close to your True Weight as you want to.

As with any diet it is advisable to consult your doctor before embarking on a new regime as it is not suitable for everyone.
