French fashion clothing and looks of this summer

jumpsuit的圖片搜尋結果Fashion trends come and go and often by the time you think you’ve caught up with the latest trends, you are already behind. That’s why spending wisely on clothing, especially for high fashion pieces, should be made wisely unless you have more than enough to splurge out on the latest fashion items.

For ordinary white collars, if you want to buy some really nice pieces of clothing for special occasions, go for something that will last. French clothing is one of the perennial fashion styles. Known for its fine quality, French designer clothing and accessories are popular among women of all age groups. They can be both elegant and chic, girlish or feminine, sumptuous or sophisticated. In all, French clothing provides a varied collection of designs that, despite their heavier price tags, can last long and are suitable for different occasions.

In Hong Kong, there are quite a number of retailers of contemporary women clothing that put on shelf a fine collection of quality clothing items and accessories which are sources selectively from around the world. If you look for shops that sell French design clothes in Hong Kong, you should opt for those which are have a long-standing reputation as fakes and imitations are abundant in the market. This is especially the case if you are buying from online shopping outlets, where you don’t have a chance to get a fitting before making a purchase. What’s more, many online fashion outlets are marketing their China-made products as overseas manufactured and imported. There are not explicit rules governing the sale of fake clothes and accessories online. So it’s better to remain cautious and buy from reputable retailers.

Are you thinking of making the seasonal shopping for the summer this year? The below gives you a few tips on the latest trends to help you make the right decisions.

Khaki: It’s making a powerful comeback this summer. Khaki has made its appearance in the summer collections of a number of fashion houses. With a taste of masculine, this year’s Khaki designs are imbued with feminine elements that make them look polished with a tint of elegance.

Stripes: Be prepared to see a lot of stripes this summer, as striped clothes are once again becoming the centre of attention. Stripes are classic pattern that are coming back strong this year mixed with colorful bright lines to push the boundaries.

Bright red: What color suits summer best? Red is definitely one. Go for red and you can’t be wrong. It is a color of vibrancy and passion. Dress in all red or add a flash of red to your look, and let the color speak for yourself.

Jumpsuits. Wear them with leather belt or straps with large buttons. An elegantly plain jumpsuit is a must-have item in your wardrobe this summer. Add a piece of  two of large, bold accessories and you are ready to take on the street.

Acquiring business information online

online information platform的圖片搜尋結果Keeping up with the latest news and trends has never been easier with the modernity of our current technology. From the different social media platforms available, to the countless sources that the World Wide Web offers, receiving information about the different happenings all around the world can be achieved in virtually the same time as the event happens. This technology also brings us the ability to record large data making us capable of analysing past events to better predict the future. This can be applied to numerous aspects of our life like keeping in touch with our friends and family, keeping important files that might be useful in the future, being updated with the events happening around you, and the aspect that I want to talk about, using this technology in business. Data is one of the most essential components of a business. It is used to keep up with the demands of clients, store their data, process necessary information. It can also be used on wider aspects like analysis of the market, keeping up with trends in the stock market, latest M&A news, current or on going private equity news and deals and so much more.

There is just a little drawback to this convenience that we are now experiencing, and it involves credibility. There are some who uses this technology for personal gain, sometimes exploiting users by making them subscribe to timely news that are sometimes inaccurate and misleading, which then makes the consumer create a decision that might lead to an unfavourable outcome. The government and law makers are also not able to keep up with the rapid phase that our technology is in. Laws that involve the World Wide Web can only be made when a need to arises, which is more on the corrective side and not preventive.

In spite some of its drawbacks, the benefits that this advancement in technology brings us still outweigh its negative side. This allows us to look back on the mistakes that the past generation has brought us, giving us the ability to analyse them and make a better decision that would probably result to a more desirable outcome. It also helps us in predicting the results of the different decisions that we make, looking at trends that made a great impact, which then gives us the opportunity to act early to be able to alter its negative consequences. Truly, the human race have made a great advancement in technology, making lives easier and more convenient, and I think that we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg because the potential of the human brain is endless, only time will tell when a better invention comes up and totally change the way that we live right now.  

My (husband’s) experience with physiotherapy

physiotherapy的圖片搜尋結果Physiotherapy is a specialized practice that centers on helping people regain optimal health and strength after an injury, sudden health event like a stroke, or when suffering from a chronic condition. After my husband broke his leg in 2002, he spent over a month in physiotherapy. Well, technically, it wasn’t broken – he stepped off a rock in a stream, and bent his foot until his toes touched his shin. (My apologies to squeamish readers – if it makes you feel better, I cringe every time he tells that story.) It was bad enough that he needed to spend 6 – 8 weeks in a cast. When his foot was released, not only was it weakened by the injury, the muscles were somewhat atrophied from the time spent in the cast.

If he hadn’t gone through physiotherapy after his cast was removed, he would probably still be in pain and walking with a limp. He had no side-to-side strength in his ankle at all by the end of those 8 weeks. The specific exercises given to him by the therapists helped him regain his strength and flexibility, so he was able to return to his (very physical) construction job.

The therapist taught him the exercises in twice-weekly sessions, and gave him some equipment and exercises to do at home. The tools used in physiotherapy can be deceptively simple – elastic bands and diagrams of the special stretches and exercises – so even your bedroom can be turned into a physiotherapy treatment room as you rehabilitate from your injury. Physiotherapy is really all about well aligned movements and repetitions, and my husband had excellent therapists that encouraged him to work hard. He ended up doing his stretches and exercises as much as five times daily. Now, some therapists would actually advise against that, as it could overwork the injured area and leave it vulnerable to re-injury. Thankfully, my husband recovered well – he was careful to listen to his body and not overdo his exercises – but it is very possible to overwork the injured area, so always consult your therapist on how often and how long to exercise.

Some of the exercises that he had to do were simple – pointing his toes, tracing letters of the alphabet in the air, then flexing to stretch the calf muscles. Sometimes he would do those same movements, but would use a wide elastic band held in his hands and hooked over his toes to create more resistance. And one of the first exercises the therapists would have him do every session at physiotherapy central was ride the exercise bike at a specific level of resistance.

All this sounds so simple and common-sense that some people think “I could do this on my own!” – PLEASE don’t try this on your own! Physiotherapists go through a lot of training to learn proper body mechanics and the right way to retrain the body. Always consult a professional to help you recover from a major life event. There are a number of professional organizations offering quality services of physiotherapy in Central. The right physiotherapy can add years of living to your life.

On pursuing a lifelong career in the legal industry

legal studies的圖片搜尋結果My friend will graduate from college soon this year after three years of legal studies. For the purpose of applying what she has learnt as well as out of her own interest, she is considering pursuing a career in the legal field. Ever since her childhood, she has dreamt of becoming a barrister, making her case and defending for her client just like those lawyers portrayed in TV dramas. She worked hard to enter the law school and worked even harder to graduate. However, just as she is about to step out from college and realize her dream, she has begun to hesitate. The media have published stories about the gloomy prospects for law school graduates in recent years. For example this story about the limited vacancies for law school graduates published by Bloomberg. There are also other stories about the cost of studying law, like this one published by Business Insider about the average debt of a law-school graduate.

Career prospects and the cost of study are two important factors to take into account before you enroll into a law school. It might still be the case that legal jobs are paid more handsomely than other general office work. However, the edge is narrowing and many legal practitioners at the lower rung of the ladder are earning not as much as before as a result of severe competition in the job market.

For students who are seeking higher ranking positions such as solicitors and barristers, they should pay attention to the cost of study for entering a law school. As Daniel A. Hochheiser, a criminal attorney and managing partner at Hochheiser & Hochheiser, quoted as saying in an article published by observer.com, “Law school is a major gamble.” Law-school students are required to spend a fortune on tuition fees and might find themselves deep in loans with no guarantee of success in landing a good paying legal job in the future.

In fact, as early as 2013, TIME magazine published an article about the legal sector might be in for a fundamental change arising from a grim legal job market. It was noted in the article that there were a surprising number of legal job postings that offer no pay at all, in addition to many legal graduates were stuck with low-paying contract work which are tedious and unrewarding. This has caused a vicious cycle for law-school graduates, who are not able to secure a well-paying job and end up not being able to pay off their debt. Having no other choices they are stuck with low-paying jobs, which are not paying enough to help them to clear up their debts.

The cost of continuing professional study is another factor to consider for law-school students. Law associations in different countries require all legal practitioners to keep abreast of the latest trends of the industry and expand their expertise by taking legal CPD courses. The cost of CPD for lawyers should be taken into account before one decides to enter the legal field.

There is no guarantee that studying a law degree will be a good investment. Prepared for the worst and equipped yourself with the necessary knowledge is what we can do to minimize the risk. After all, there is no surefire way to a successful career.
