When it comes to mixing and matching your bags, a lot will depend on why you want to carry a bag. 

If it is to make a fashion statement then go for something trendy and in vogue. If you want to project a conservative look your best choice would be subtle or dark colours.

Achieving a casual look is not a simple feat. The term casual can represent different styles of grooming to a varied number of people.

The approach with this dress code is certainly more laid back than others. The focus is on creating a decent look simply and effortlessly.

It is always good to have all meals of the day


There are so many reasons why people have to start watching their diet. Top among them is for weight management among those who feel that they are becoming too fat. 

There are those who also watch their weight though they are not fat yet want to remain slim and maintain their shape. This applies to models, beauty pageants and some health conscious persons.

"Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” — Henry Ford

I am 19 (and just one year into college), and when a friend tells me I’m losing my hair. I laugh him off, then do a full inspection when I get home. I see some gaps, but it doesn’t seem that serious.

Exercise to keep weight in check is a healthy lifestyle


Intuitively, people rationalise to identify the  potential causes of their illness with  questions such as: ‘‘Is it because  of  the excess alcohol I have been drinking  habitually?”, or is it probably due to  my  high fat intake of late?’’, etc.

When you work hard every single day and there’s only so much money left after your regular expenses, you have to make certain it’s well spent. Spend your limited funds on what science says will make you happy.

Members of the community have very clean water from the Akrasu river for their daily use


In spite of the rampant destruction of the environment and water bodies left in the trail of galamsey activities in most communities across the country, there are some who have guarded against the menace and it is so refreshing to know.

New ideas, new goals and new ways of thinking can stem from the relaxation you take


Giving employees the time they need to rest, enjoy life and return to work rejuvenated can produce massive benefits for companies. 

When employees plan holidays, family and friends getaways, those getaways are a smart move for companies because taking breaks or time off brings employees back refreshed, happier and healthier — and that leads to increased productivity.

Time together with your lover promotes bonding


Our maker who is love made us in His image and also as social beings. He, therefore, puts something in us that makes us love and be loved as we make time for our lovers. 

Love, among others, improves how you feel about yourself and, therefore, improves the quality of life.

Not easy to love a person like you


Folks, don't imagine that you are better or perfect, merely because the one you are in a relationship with is not complaining about your excesses as much as you do about his/hers.

The secret to a lasting relationship is always making your primary relationship the one with yourself


Once you’ve found the love of your life, you may begin to wonder how to keep the passion alive. 

If you desire to strengthen your love, there are a few steps you can take to keep your relationship fresh.

Relationship and marital problems are not that uncommon. They come in all shapes and sizes. If you are feeling disconnected or alone in your relationship, you are not alone. The divorce rate is almost 50 percent. This should tell you something.

As a Marriage & Family Therapist and a trained Gottman Couples Therapist, I can tell you that I've seen a lot of problems. My knowledge has allowed me to help many couples through difficult times. I've found that the small things make a BIG difference in a relationship.

My “Stop, Drop, and Roll” technique is the tried and true, all-time favourite method for avoiding relationship Groundhog Day (the insanity of doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result), which is what we do when we make impulsive, unconscious choices like calling an ex when we know better. 

Learning this skill is not only effective but, according to scientific studies, developing delayed gratification skills has been associated with success in all areas of life. It works just like a fire drill! 

Romantic gestures women want


Whether you’ve been with a woman for a few years or your relationship is still new, it’s necessary to demonstrate your appreciation once in a while. 

Here are a few ways to show you care and light a fire that will make her want to be with only you.
