Halloween Is Almost Here, Are You Ready?

Halloween is nearing very fast. As a child I remember how much fun it was to dress up in a costume and go out trick or treating. Now as an adult I still enjoy dressing up in my favorite costume and joining in on all the Halloween celebrations with the children and then at the local parties with my friends. This is just a great time seeing all the different costumes and trying to figure out who is behind the mask. At many of the parties they have contests on which costume is the best and most original. I hope to be a contestant this year. But the problem is with my busy work schedule and home life I just do not have time to make my own costume. So I have turned to the internet to see what is hot, new and the best costume for me. I stumbled upon a website called Halloween Adventure. Their website is great. They have costumes for children and adults. What is new and what is hot. All broke down in an easy to use website. On their website you can even have some fun by joining a contest called Jacks Quest. There you can submit your Halloween photos, video and stories for your chance to win great prizes. Halloween is almost here so hurry to enter for your chance to win. It is easy you can Buy Halloween Costumes Online or in a Halloween Store Near You, then submit your pictures and have a great time at all your Halloween events.

A Quick Way To Get Slim

A simple way for women to get stronger is by using a leg press machine or you could walk at a pace of 3.5 to 4.0 mph on a tread mill. Going this fast burns about 80% extra calories an hour and can improve your lung capacity and blood pressure by up to 10% more than a stroll would do.

Or for those of us without the fancy equipment could stand with your back against a wall, feet 1 to 2 steps apart. Then slide down the wall until your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Then press into your heels and slide back up the wall. Do this in 3 sets of 12 reps, 3 days a week.

Sandals And Slipping

Summer is almost over, but it is still warm enough to wear those high-healed sandals you got at the end of season sale. But the problem it will slip through our feet to the toe opening as we step. To avoid this claw foot look, spray the inside soles with hairspray. Let them dry for 1 minute before wearing. The hairspray makes the insoles sticky, so it will grip your feet as you walk. The will really prevent your feet from sliding in shoes.

Here are some facts about Labor Day that not many people realize.

  • Although the movement to have Labor Day had been happening for quite some time, in September 1892, union workers in New York City took an unpaid day off and gathered in Union Square to support the holiday.
  • 1894 - President Cleveland made a campaign promise to enact the holiday to win votes and he followed through with his promise.
  • 1898 - The head of the American Federation of Labor, Samuel Gompers, called it "the day for which the toilers in past centuries looked forward, when their rights and their wrongs would be discussed...that the workers of our day may not only lay down their tools of labor for a holiday, but upon which they may touch shoulders in marching phalanx and feel the stronger for it."
  • But most of all Labor Day is a celebration of workers in America.
