  1. Grass-fed butter nutrition is even more impressive than regular butter nutrition – When saturated fat is obtained from healthy sources in moderation, like grass-fed butter and coconut oil, it provides the body much-needed fuel and helps with blood sugar stability. When it comes to cholesterol concerns,  low cholesterol levels are worse than high for many people. By consuming grass-fed butter, you directly increase your intake of butyric acid, which science has shown can decrease inflammation. One of the specific ways it has been shown to decrease inflammation is in the intestines of people with Crohn’s disease.

5. Freddie Mercury really loved cats. He had a vest with portraits of his cats painted on it, wrote songs about some of them and had albums dedicated to not only his favorite cats, but to all the cat lovers across the universe. At one point he lived with as many as 10 in Garden Lodge, Mercury’s walled mansion in Kensington. While he travelled with the band, the cats stayed put in London, making it his favourite home of the many houses he had around the world.

His 1985 debut solo album, Mr Bad Guy, was dedicated to Jerry, half of his first pair, Tom and Jerry, that moved in when Mercury and his then-girlfriend Mary Austin bought them. Although Austin and Mercury split in the late Seventies, he continued to see Tom and Jerry and his feline fascination continued – as did his friendship with Austin, who gave him Tiffany, a longhaired bluepoint, a few years later.

Delilah. The inspiration for the song of the same name, the tabby was adopted and swiftly took to ruling the roost, demanding food and Mercury’s attention in equal measure. There was truth in the lyrics “when you throw a moody you’re all claws and you bite!” and “when you pee all over my Chippendale Suite”.

Did You Know – 06/14/2016 – These 7 Poses to Make Your Selfies look Great.

 

fa27516ee77357f13f2fccb13e127d1c

Did you know these 7 poses to make your selfies look fantastic or a least a bit better than normal what ever that is.

I know some that take selfies and they look great at any angle, not me I feel I would look better if I was hanging upside down.

Well apparently there are certain techniques that can improve the look. These techniques will make sure you get the best of what you have hopefully give you great shot.

  1. Eliminate a double chin

Apparently Heidi Klum does this trick and that is to:-

a. Put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. (lengthens your neck)

b. Stick your chin out like a turtle

Both of these tricks do great things for a good selfie.

 

2. Slim your waist

Turn your body 45 degrees and put the hand that’s closest to the camera on your hip. This creates a triangle in between your arm and your waist. Next, put the other hand on your hip with that same triangle, and you’ll instantly slim your waistline.

3.  Shrink your hips

when your hips are closest to the camera they  looks bigger. Pushing your hips back makes them look smaller and will also tilt your shoulders forward, making you look a lot thinner.

4. Make that arm look taunt and terrific

Now this hint is a good one for me as I always think my arm looks like an arm of a Russian Wrestler.

When you let your arm hang down on your sides it flattens your muscles out and does not engage your muscles.

Use your shoulders to lift the arm facing the camera, and pull it away from your body to eliminate unflattering photos.

5. Elongate your neck.

Lowering your front shoulder elongates the neck and accentuates the way you’re posing your arms, hips, and face.

6. Slim and Accentuate Your Curves

This would be a bit difficult to do if you were taking a selfie but if you have one of those pole things you probably can.

If you are facing the camera tilt your body and bend knee in to make an ‘S’ shape it makes you look slimmer but curvy at the same time.

7. Get the best angle.

You will always look better if you have the camera looking down on you. Shooting down from a higher angle highlights all the other tricks and creates one of the most flattering angles.

If you are taking a selfie in public always check your background make sure there is nothing there or at least nothing happening in the back ground that could embarrass you or anyone else.

The best photo’s are the ones when you are the happiest so have fun, make some crazy shots and just be you.
