Corset Training started back in the Victorian Era where women obsessively wore corsets every day that would completely change and distort their torsos for the womanly hour glass shape… although it worked… it caused major organ damage, ribs to break, lungs collapsing, passing out, and even reproductive problems. The reason for this is because they wore them WAY too tight and made them tighter over time.. crunching their organs. However, there is a semi-new and trending safer “waist training” that i have become quiet interested in. It has been popular in the hispanic community for a long time but women are starting to catch on. The results are great and they are not used in the same overly exaggerated way. There is a set that you can get that you wear one during the day casually and one that you wear while you are working out. They are used to compress heat and help your body contour and sweat out the excess fat in the right places. They are not to the extreme tight and crazy like you think of back in the day.
I came across this from a model i follow on instagram who is a health/workout connoisseur. She wears them and swears by them. Her body and shape look great and do not look in any way deformed or harmful. I really believe in body wraps, compression, and detox to help release certain fats and toxin so i believe these work too. I just ordered mine today. I will do before and after photos and let you know how i like them!
Of course just like anything else, do not expect to loose fat or build a great shape simply wearing a waist trainer. Clean eating, drinking lots of water, and working out take a major part in this process as well. I am really insecure about my waist because i feel like i have a short torso which means i have to work a lot harder at keeping my flat tummy.. i also have no hips from the front. WIth this i am hoping to help keep my tummy flat as well as a contoured shape! I ordered tiny tea tox and was going to do it but i decided to wait and do it together with my waist training. The results should be fabulous! :))

The online store i am choosing to use is www.perfectmysilhouette.com because they have sooo many different options and they are from Miami, FL. They also sell creams and gels for application and body wraps as well as body shapers for you to wear under clothes. (Like Kim K wears) to contour your shape under clothes if you are feeling insecure. The one i am purchasing is a package like i said where you get 2 for 1. One you wear whenever and one you wear for the gym. —> http://www.perfectmysilhouette.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60&product_id=69

Me and my fiance celebrated thanksgiving this weekend in the country where his family is, and let’s just say while they all played sports- i played with my hair lol… and of course ate everything is sight
I have never learned how to french braid and it is something i have always wanted to teach myself. My mom use to french braid my hair when i was younger all the time. This weekend his cousin Mary Katherine gave me french braid pig tails! I havent had them in sooooo long! I wanted to rock it for a lot longer than two days but since i dont know how to do it, i couldnt adjust all the loose ends and hair sticking out (lol) so i had to take them out this morning. My hair looks GORGEOUS! It has a very natural looking wave from top to bottom and even some volume. My hair was dry when she did it and i kept it in for almost two days. But if you do this when your hair is wet and wake up and take it out- i promise you wont have to even brush your hair, and just leave with fabulous locks to work! I would suggest first trying it to see how it works our for you. If you love it, do it on a thursday night after a shower and wake up and take it out and have the hair for the weekend! The reason i think i love the look of the two french braid tails over one french braid is because i think it gives you a more defined smaller wave.
Here is before and after:
I have been wanting to rock the french braids with some hoop earrings and a colored lip with a cute casual outfit for winter, so i think i will do this again the next time i have an eventful weekend. Ill braid my hair at night before bed, wear the braids the next day, and than take them out before a dinner date that evening <3. There is nothing sexier than natural looking exotic beach waves!
Here is a youtube tutorial that i found, I will attempt to do it myself this weekend too. This one is good because she is doing it herself rather than someone else doing to her hair: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8R9vY4jWu8
