Comfy Sporty Outfit Ideas for Women


.

If you love comfortable clothes and feel most like yourself, you should focus your attention on cute sporty outfits. The athletic chic style is considered al trendy one that never goes out of fashion. Moreover, today's fashion commends the beauty of sporty garments and, therefore, you have the opportunity to wear something sexy and comfortable at the same time.  Don`t think that sporty clothes are the appropriate attire only for the gym or yoga class. No, no, no! You can also feel comfortable and confident putting on athletic essentials on the streets as the casual clothes.

 

Sportswear is known as comfy and functional attire and that's probably why ladies like to experiment with their sporty outfits. There are really a lot of easy combos that you can mix up together and get a great look. Mostly, you can experiment with a bold color palette because a perfect sporty outfit is actually super formulaic. Just remember you need five things that help you make your look gorgeous (by the way, these five essentials are the useful pieces of clothing that every lady should have in her wardrobe):

 

  1. Sports Bra (it's important to find the best sports bra for your size and, of course, color).

 

  1. T-shirt (experiment with size, color and style).

 

  1. Sweatshirt (if you want or need it).

 

  1. Leggings, sweatpants, cropped sweatpants or shorts (depending on the preferences).

 

  1. Sneakers (if you have some foot problems like the high-arched foot or peculiar feet like wide feet, you should be very careful choosing your sporty footwear. What are the best running shoes for wide feet? You have to figure it out before you buy the sneakers!).

 

Well, these basics make you sporty, but you also can add more colors and accessories to your looks like a lovely bracelet or a cute fitness tracker, sweaty headband or sunglasses can really make you look bright and eye-catching.

 

Look at the best examples of the stylish, sporty look in 2018 and think what ones will fit you.

How to download YouTube videos safely


.

You need a very good downloader to download YouTube video safely. Even though there are hundreds of such downloaders available, finding the right one can be little time-consuming and you may need to do some good research. The best downloader will have some definite advantage over the general downloaders which are available today. The following factors are very important in choosing a downloader which will help you to download you Tube video safely.

Speed up the downloader

Speed of the downloader is very important. There are some downloaders which are very sluggish and they need few hours to download a simple video. You cannot wait hours for the downloader to download a video. You need a downloader which will download your videos with a fast speed. There are some YouTube video downloader apps which will download a two-hour full HD video in just four minutes. Such fast downloaders use the multithread technology and as a result of that you get the benefit of getting your video within few seconds.

Supports any format

Find a video downloader that will allow you to download You Tube videos in any format. Which should download the videos in MP4, WebM, 3GP, FLV formats. You should also be able to save any YouTube music as MP3 files. Such a downloader should be able to rip web links to AVI, MKV, WMV, iPhone, PSP, Android, phones, etc.

Save several videos at once

Your downloader should allow you to save several videos at once. There are many downloaders which does not allow this feature. Would you like to keep downloading videos one by one doing everything manually? Definitely not. You need a downloader which will help you to save time by saving several videos at once as you want.

Original quality

Just make sure that the downloader you are using preserves the original quality of the videos. If you get a low quality video that you cannot use or which is very much pixilated, what is the use of downloading the video? It is just a waste of your time and Internet. You need a downloader which will preserve the original quality. Some of the downloaders may even help you to improve the quality by allowing you to download in a higher resolution. It is also important that your downloader allows you to download 4k and full HD videos. With time, the quality of the videos in you Tube and other sites are increasing and so you downloader should be able to handle the latest type of videos and download it for you within a short time. Find a downloader that supports different qualities such as 4K, 1440p, 1080p, 720p, 480p, 360p, 240p, 180p.

Ability to limit download speed

It is important for people with slow Internet connection to limit the download speed. However, most of the downloaders are not sophisticated enough to allow such ability to limit download speed. However, there are some very good downloaders available which will allow you to limit download speed according to your wish. Choose a downloader which has this facility.

Ability to download from different sites

There are some downloaders which will allow you to download videos only from a few sites. On the other hand there are downloaders which will help you to download such videos from 10,000 sites. Which one will you choose? You should be able to capture online videos easily from YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Twitch, LiveLeak, Veoh, local and adult sites.

Freemake Video Downloader is a downloader that have all the above mentioned features. It lets you download YouTube videos and 10,000 other sites; save videos, playlists, channels in HD, MP4, MP3, AVI, 3GP, FLV, etc. It is absolutely free. Download it here

Pattern Trends 2013: Floral


There is nothing that screams Summer and Spring like flowers. I love walking outside and seeing all of the gorgeous and fragrant flowers blooming. There is something simply sweet and romantic about flowers. Not only do we give them as gifts to people we care about as a sign of affection, flowers are also presented to people as a symbol of regret and apology. I love the hidden meanings of flowers, and I think that floral prints and patterns are definitely making a come back in 2013. We are seeing more and more floral patterns with a funky and vintage flare on the runway, in stores, and featured in interior design.

The Year Movie Posters Turned Gray

The Year Movie Posters Turned Gray


Recently we shared a project that visualized the history of colors in movie posters from 1914 to present. Those visualizations showed a striking shift as blue has been feature more and more prominently over the years. It also highlights Hollywood's love of those complementary colors orange and blue. This is something that gets brought up and ranted about every so often, and when I went to browse through the movie posters of films released this year, I fully expected to see the usual orange and blue trends. What I saw was a little different.

Yes, there are still a lot of blue posters out there, but we know blue is nothing new.

What struck me in particular about 2012 was how gray everything looked. Everywhere I saw dark, subdued posters, steely black & white images, and heck, there's even a film called The Grey. Just take a look at some of the of posters from this year.

Geometric Home Design Elements of Simon Page

Geometric Home Design Elements of Simon Page


The designs of Simon Page take us back to basics, to the literal building blocks of good design: geometric shapes. Page, a London-based graphic designer, is all about creating a visual experience that stimulates the emotions. His philosophy is “Good Design Excites.” And you’ll be surprised how exciting circles and squares can get after Page is done with them!

Share this Post Pin It

Though all of his designs jump-off from basic geometric shapes, his work gets more sophisticated as he layers on his color palette, cuts and rearranges the shapes in the frame, and develops unexpected patterns and textures. In the words of one commenter, he creates work that “you can get lost in - they are busy, but somehow calming at the same time.

Geometric Cushion Designs

At first glance, the design covering this pillow seemed to have sequins on it, but on second glance, this is illusion created by bold color choices and the juxtapositions.

The same type of visual tricks follow in his other four pillow designs, which would make a striking focal point in any living room.
