Why I like blue jeans

Why I like blue jeans
A long lasting piece of clothing in your wardrobe should be the blue jeans. First of all, I don't know if you noticed, jeans fit any woman, and transforms an unhappy backside, into some appetizing curves, perfectly fits any kind of body and brings advantages to any type of figure. In addition, jeans can be worn on any occasion, on a trip, in the mountains, in the countryside, at home, at work, at the market, at a party. Yes, guess what, jeans are a very versatile piece of clothing and suitable for absolutely any occasion you want and I think you know that. Or don't you? :)

Maybe I'm not going to wear them on a wedding celebration or some other kind of fancy party, but at a cocktail party why not wear a pair of elastic jeans with sequins or rhinestones? Or simply a pair of very elegantly tailored jeans? Not to mention that jeans can be worn by anyone, at any age. I like both your kid going to school every year and the grey-haired businessman who's tired of everyday office outfits.

Once upon a time, more than a hundred years ago, jeans were meant for those who worked on the plantations and there were only jeans in that blue color, specific to them. Not any other piece of clothing did have that color. By the way, did you know that that shade was discovered by chance? Indigo blue was a hard color to stabilize and at one point, the one who colored the jeans, happened to no longer have a color stabilizer and left the paint like that. It was immediately noticed that the jeans from the dock painted without stabilizer faded with each wash and even by wearing, but with time it became an appreciated feature of these trousers, and sometimes it was even a clue that the jeans were "original" and not fake. Anyway, some decades ago there were factories in theEastern Europe that produced jeans-like trousers. They were much like blue jeans, but were not blue jeans.

When the people saw that jeans are very long lasting, the demand increased and they quickly became an indispensable piece of clothing in any man's wardrobe. If I kept all the pairs of jeans, skirts, dresses and shirts I wore over time, I wouldn't have enough of a closet to store them. And because we keep talking about jeans, I would like to wear an elegant pair of jeans at the next party. Oh well, I've never been an old-fashioned woman and I'm not going to be now.

Fashion styles - the mermaid evening gown

Fashion styles - the mermaid evening gown

As every woman I always want to look very good, though especially on a some occasions. One of the most fashionable forms of dresses today is the mermaid dress. Here I must say my body is not at all fit for a mermaid dress, still I would like to tell a few things about it, because it is one of the most beautiful dress shapes, and because many brides want such a wedding gown for their party. The problem is, as I have already suggested: do all women have the right body for this dress to fit perfectly?

Unfortunately, it is one of the most difficult dresses to wear. First of all, this shape is suitable only for women who have an hourglass silhouette, because the mermaid dress is draped over the body and only from below the knee it becomes flared. The proportionality between the thighs, waist and hips is essential for this type of dress to attract, to fit perfectly, to give the impression of a mermaid to the woman who wears it.

The woman with the hourglass silhouette has rather rounded shapes of the breast, hips and body, generally speaking. She has breasts, protruding hips and thighs, though she has a thin waist, located exactly halfway between the maximum width areas of the chest and hips. Exactly looking like an hourglass. This figure is, unfortunately, quite rare, most women can be placed within two body shapes: with higher body weight in the lower half of the body - pear-shaped figure, or with too large breasts and shoulders too wide relatively to the hips - apple-type figure. The mermaid dress, however, fits well with the pear silhouette, but if the woman is filiform, with a poorly contoured waist, small breasts and teenage hips, the mermaid dress will be a disaster for her. Moreover, overweight women should avoid this type of dress, which severely highlights the roundness of the body, and is definitely not desirable if we have more extra pounds.

Today this shape of the body is no longer fashionable, the canons suggesting that the weak woman is desired, with a youthful look, without pillows but with her ribs and collarbone relatively well highlighted under the skin. That's why the examples I found to illustrate the hourglass silhouette refer to two celebrities from other times, namely Mae West and Raquel Welch, American actresses from the '30s and' 60s, respectively.

And if you really want such a dress, but you don't know if it suits you, then try it. And if it doesn't catch you, even if you fall in love with the mermaid dress, you may be aware that another style is suitable for your body. Next time, the princess dress

Advantages of convection ovens

Advantages of convection ovens

A convection oven is an oven that heats food through the circulation of hot air. Convection ovens use a fan to circulate hot air. If you are about to buy a new stove and oven, my advice is to choose a convection oven, of course taking into account its advantages and disadvantages.

1. Cooking efficiency

When food is cooked in a conventional oven, the heat exchange between the hot air and the cold food and the evaporation of moisture into the food creates an insulating layer on the surface of the food that slows down the cooking process. The air currents in a convection oven eliminate this insulating layer, so that the heat transfer is much more efficient and the cooking time is shorter, which brings savings to the electricity bill.

2. The food is cooked evenly

Advantages and disadvantages of using a convection oven A traditional oven does not have indoor air at a constant temperature everywhere. There are areas with air that is either too hot or too cold. The convection oven fan allows hot air to circulate everywhere so that the temperature is the same. Moreover, in the convection oven you do not have to worry that the food may burn or be undercooked. These are common problems only with conventional ovens.

3. You can cook several dishes at once

If you have to prepare a festive meal, or simply for several people, you will have to cook several dishes in the oven at the same time. This is only possible in convection ovens. You can place the dishes on top of each other and the food will be cooked at the right temperature. Or you can place the trays of various shapes next to each other, because you no longer need to hold the dish with food only in the middle, as in the traditional oven.

However, convection ovens have also some disadvantages.

Meat, fish and seafood cook very well by convection. But dishes put in closed pots, such as casseroles, will not be cooked very differently from a standard oven. Dark, dense dishes will cause overheating and excessive browning when used in convection ovens. Any coated material is better baked in a conventional oven.

Cake dough does not grow as much as in a traditional oven, because that dough needs warm, static air to grow. Convection currents keep it in place.

These ovens break down faster because they are more fragile than traditional ovens and will need some repairs at some point.

Overall, however, convection ovens are a great investment for efficiency in the kitchen. There are many models and sizes available, so you should quickly find the right solution for your needs, even if that oven is for commercial or household use.
