Mindful Eating

I’ve been learning some funny little health tidbits recently and decided to share them with you all.

The real cure for hiccups: Breathe in, hold. Breathe in, hold. Breathe in. It plays with your diaphragm and holds the effects of the usually unsuccessful ‘one deep breath in’.

Cure heartburn: Lay on your left side. It preserves the curve of your esophagus, and laying any other way will straighten it out. This way, stomach acid can’t creep up.

How to stop crying: Stick your tongue on the roof of your mouth or clear your throat. It will block your soft palate and make it almost impossible to cry.

Exercise is more important than diet. While they obviously both are of importance – you actually get results much faster in regards to things like disease prevention and overall health with exercise than diet. The only exception for this is weight loss, as it’s generally much easier to each 500 calories less than work the same 500 calories off.

It seems our friends at Esquire UK have lost their minds, or are relishing in some sort of genius. For a Toy Story 3-themed editorial, they have hired Ken to flash some of the best Burberry, Paul Smith, Gucci and Prada. It seems that even ex-flame Barbie joined in for a shot!

Dita von Teese Gaultier CoutureI’m in love with Dita Von Teese. Notorious for her glamorous burlesque performances, she has an all-day, every-day devotion to retro style from head to toe that is matched by no-one.

A MAC Cosmetics spokesmodel and bombshell with designer love for Marc Jacobs and Christian Dior, she seems to have her finger on everything within reach. It’s also all her own, notably saying “…the one time I hired a stylist, they picked up a pair of my 1940s shoes and said, ‘These would look really cute with jeans.’ I immediately said, ‘You’re out of here.”
The only person we know works directly for Dita is Catherine D’lish – her best friend and designer/collaborator of all her on-stage costumes.

She has walked fashion weeks for Moschino Cheap & Chic, Heatherette, Giambattista Valli, and Jean Paul Gaultier (as you saw yesterday.) Gaultier’s show was especially fabulous thanks to the va-va-voom of von Teese’s sartorial striptease. Click for more.
