Ever wonder to yourself... "Aye! I got to much clothes!" Well today topic is about Fashion! (Feel free to hop in & give advice.) OUTFITS! ---> That's the main key. Having dress clothes is always require sometime. Such as situation you have to be place... - Church - Interview - Work - Important Event (Gotta look sharp!) - Date? (If you want to be fancy) Suit is usually the full set of the dress wardrobe. I can tell you that it play a lot in your life so have at least 2-3. Suit sure can create some decent outfit just play with it. BLAZER - You can wear it with your fav. T_SHIRT & a pair of JEANS(prefer DARK jeans) & just throw on some OXFORDS. DRESS SHIRT - Dress shirt you don't always need to wear them with CHINO. You ca always where them with JEANS. CHINO - Be creative... What I like to wear with them sometime is tennis shoe & a t-shirt along. OXFORDS - Can wear with JEANS don't always got to be with CHINO/DRESS SHIRT. Stay connected for future UPDATE. (If you have any suggestions please leave a comment.) "By the way important thing is it also save $!"

Hmong traditional clothing's are taking a modern turn strutting down the fashion runway with rich textile designs. While growing up from a large Hmong family, we have always witnessed our mothers sew beautiful well-crafted embroidery. For the girls who learned how to sew and learned from their mothers, their passion for the arts only intensified their vision in becoming a fashionista. Hmong designs would include bright colors: pink, green, red, blue, and a ray of colors we see in Bollywood films. Before we knew it, fashion designers started to embrace Hmong designs and created their own inspiring look. Suddenly, you are seeing Angelina Jolie's daughter wearing a Hmong jacket that is sold only at a Hmong or Asian market. Next thing you know, more celebrities are also turning to Hmong inspiring designs from purses to fashion wear as Selma Hayek. Hmong fashions are hard to come by and here are several reasons why. 1. Hmong traditional clothing's are all hand stitched and customized from scratch. 2. Hmong traditional clothing's all take time from the color of the thread to the design. 3. No American retail store carries a handcrafted Hmong outfit. 4. You can only get Hmong traditional clothing at a Hmong New Year. If you're not Hmong and are in search of a Hmong clothing, you'll have to wait for the next Hmong New Year to purchase your order. In recent news, it has been discovered that more than one Hmong Fashion Designer exist. In fact, there is plenty of Hmong Fashion Designers right in our own backyards from Fresh Traditions in St. Paul, Minnesota to the Revived Fashion Show in Fresno, California traveling all around the world in France, Australia, Canada, China, Laos, Thailand and French Guinea, South America. Let’s not forget fashionista Sheng Moua and Chong Cha; two of the most successful women in Fashion who has worked with celebrities all over the country. Hmong fashion is catching up with the times, the traditional Hmong clothes are now becoming the fashion of today in most youth with vibrant colors and decorated designs.

Popular in many Asian dishes, pork can be a lean and tasty alternative to chicken. Though this dish seems simple (it involves only pork, broccoli, and basmati rice), the oyster sauce packs a punch. It mixes savory and sweet ingredients for the perfect seasoning. As an added bonus, this dish contains 5 grams of iron (nearly one-third of a woman's recommended daily amount).

December is a popular month in the Hmong community because it is a time of the year where we come together to celebrate the festivities. Do you plan to attend the Hmong New Year event and how important is it to keep your cultural tradition in your life?

Yes, the Hmong Music Festival is awesome. Good job fellow Hmongies. I think this is only the beginning of many events our Hmong minds can produce. We need pioneers like this to pave the wave for future success.

Every culture throughout history has some form of art to express or document their history and way of life. For the Hmong, this is in the form of the story cloth which depicts the life of the Hmong people in Asia, and their plight to America. Hmong Women are well known for their needle art skills, a tradition that has been passed on from mother to daughter for over five thousand years. Traditionally, a story cloth was made for family use. Today, it serves as a reminder of not only ones culture but as a way to show others about Hmong people’s way of life in Asia. Today the story cloth has been sold and enjoyed by many people throughout the world.

Not getting any? You’re not alone: Women today have less time for sex than their 1950s counterparts. And it’s estimated that 40 million Americans have what experts call a sexless marriage (having sex less than 10 times a year). A regular sex life is good for your health. It can satisfy all sorts of emotional- and physical-intimacy needs and help partners stay close, says Anita H. Clayton, MD, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Virginia and author of Satisfaction: Women, Sex, and the Quest for Intimacy. So why the dry spell? You can chalk it up to a sheer lack of time, but there are a slew of other reasons, too—from weight gain and perimenopause to technology overload (stop texting now) in the bedroom. Here’s how to beat the top 10 sex busters.
