Jeet Kune Do (JKD) literally translated from Chinese means “way of the intercepting fist”. It reflects Bruce Lee’s concepts, philosophy and training methods with regards to martial arts . Bruce Lee who started his base with Wing Chun Kung Fu eventually rejected the notion of sticking to one art and began exploring various other martial arts styles including boxing, judo, wrestling, savate and fencing . Bruce Lee disposed with ideals within a style adopting a flexible approach to seek what works best. He christened his martial art as Jeet Kune Do.
National Hug Day first began in 1986, and was started by Reverend Kevin Zaborney in Caro, Michigan. Zaborney believed that Americans in particular live in a society where showing feelings in public is embarrassing, and he wanted to change that by putting hugs in the spotlight one day out of the year (it’s true, studies have shown that French couples are three times as affectionate in public than Americans). He chose January 21 because it fell in between Christmas/New Year’s and Valentine’s Day; it’s also in the dead of winter, a time period where most people’s spirits are low, so seemingly a perfect time. Though it’s not a national holiday, National Hug Day is officially recognized by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The holiday has also since spread to other countries.
Have you seen the largest picture ever taken? For the record, it’s a mammoth 1.5 billion pixel image (69, 536 x 22, 230) and requires about 4.3 GB disk space. Oh, and it’ll take your breath away.
On January 5, NASA released an image of the Andromeda galaxy, our closest galactic neighbour, captured by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The full image is made up of 411 Hubble images, takes you through a 100 million stars and travels over more than 40,000 light years. Well, a section of it anyway.
Prepare to feel extremely tiny and insignificant as you marvel at this fly-through video created by YouTuber daveachuk and make sure you stick around till the end. Seriously.

2014 has been a good year for fashion but 2015 will be the best ever. Designers are showing us their artistic ability and it’s showing in how pieces are design and made. The future of fashion is ahead and here are some of my tips for bringing out your fashionista in 2015. Clover canyon is one of my favorite designers and I have been wearing a lot of their designs but their future is bright and its a label to watch if you haven’t heard about them yet this year they will be bigger than ever. Bright, Fun pieces you can wear all year long. They have lot of two-piece outfits that you can mix and match their pieces up and 2 pieces are the hottest outfits going this year. They also have great dresses and pants suits with bold and fun patterns they make sure you definitely stand out in a crowd. Clover canyon makes all shapes and sizes so there is something in their collection for anyone.
The next designer is Milly their 2015 is all about ankle puff skirts with beautiful colors mixed in with enchanting flowers. Pairing with royal blue stripe crop shirts and solid bright colors or black is what you like they have a black and white ankle puff skirt with solid black crop sweater. Designs like this will make you the fashionista you want to be. If Peach is your color they have a ruffle skirt you could wear all year long and be envied every day of the week.
My 3rd designer to watch is Alice and Olivia they are young hip designers that are constantly evolving with their designs and fashion. Alice and Olivia 2015 collection has amazing skirts with beautiful designs in Orange, blue, teal, whites, blacks and red tones. They are working with silky tracksuits black with burgundy tones. Looking forward to see where the line goes next.
So that was some of my favorite designers right now and now I will let you in on some of the best places to shop in 2015. Everyone wants designer duds on a budget so here are some tips. Did you know TJMax has a runway collection that a lot of clothes come straight off the runway but you need to know in order to ask to see what TJMax in your area that carries the runway collection. My next tip is consignment and vintage stores this is one of my personal favorite. To let you in on a secret one year I bought a dress at a consignment shop a Gucci dress that I paid $200 for and I wore it to the American music awards I got compared to Sarah Jessica Parker and the photos still runs to this day. So don’t think of consignment places being old and moldy because theses days people don’t wear the same dress over and over they sell it after a couple of uses so look for shops that carry high end brands. If your on a budget and want to wear the latest fashions here is a tip for you rent the runway you can rent the hottest and latest design from clover canyon, Moschino to Valentino prices can vary $10 to $500 depending on the look. No matter if you wear designer duds to forever 21 whatever you wear wear it with confidence because your heart and soul is what shines louder than any fancy label you can wear. In fashion there are no mistakes what every makes you happy wear it with confidence.
Wishing you a very fashionable 2015!!!
