FTD Golden Globe Fashion Picks

17 Jan

I love the award season fashion, it so exciting to see what new fashions will wow us and which stars bring it from head to toe.  This years Golden Globes fashion was a little boring to me.  Usually I see an outfit and I am just overwowed! but I did not see that at the Golden Globes last night.  The dresses were very familiar like I had seen them before, maybe everyone is saving up for the Oscars.  True…I am sitting in my home and not seeing the fashions up close and personal, but fashions should be translatable over the television screen.   From the Globes fashions that  I saw last night I have 2 top picks for best because my choice for best dress it not my choice for overall head to toe,  it happens! 

My choice for best dress is Christina Aguilera by designer Zuhair Muhad.  I love that dress, it just does not look right on her.

How much should I drink?

In case you are in good health and weigh 70 kg or less, it is advisable for you to have juice of one-half of the lemon squeezed into one glass of water, twice daily. However, if you weigh more than 70 kg, juice of one whole lemon in a glass of water should be preferred. For maximum benefit, this mixture should also be taken two times a day, though you may dilute more lemon juice according to your taste if you wish.

Do not just remain oblivious to the gifts of nature such as this, for you should always try to make the most of them. So, make it a part of your daily routine to drink a glass of warm lemon water in the morning and then open your gateway to enjoy its health benefits.
