Eyelid Surgery-(blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) corrects the bulges and wrinkles around your eyes, resulting in a more rested and youthful appearance. It may also relieve the eyes from the excess weight of redundant skin, leading to less eye fatigue and an improved field of vision.
Eyelid surgery can also be performed on fairly young individuals to correct hereditary heavy eyelids. This type of surgery is also popular among people of oriental descent. Eyelid surgery can be performed with little discomfort under local anesthesia if you are a reasonably calm person (e.g., if you are not too nervous in the dentist's chair!).

The incisions are made along the natural folds of the eyelids, where scars are least visible. The excess skin and fat are then removed.

Forties Fashion-Canadian fashion curator, takes an in-depth look at the clothing, shoes & accessories.

Forties Fashion: From Siren Suits to the New LookForties Fashion: From Siren Suits to the New Look

By Jonathan Walford
One of the best things about the way historiography has opened up over the past half-century is the way it has enabled us to view the palette of the past from different perspectives.

This book, by an experienced Canadian fashion curator, takes an in-depth look at the clothing, shoes and accessories of the most transformative decade in a century chock-full of turmoil and upheaval. In so doing, he manages to convey to the reader a marvelous sense of the texture of life as a whole back then.

Designing the New Kitchen Garden

Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook
Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook
Although the tradition of a potager, or kitchen garden, dates back to the Middle Ages, its application in contemporary gardens is a concept whose time has come. For those concerned with the freshness and purity of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, having a bountiful garden just steps from one's kitchen is the ultimate guarantor of healthy eating. Creating these intricately patterned outdoor rooms, however, can perplex even the most accomplished gardeners. Understanding the form is essential to creating an authentic potager, and to that end, Bartley provides extensive historical background, tracing the potager's inception in medieval Europe to its development in modern-day France, where the practice of kitchen gardening has been raised to an art form. Liberally peppered with dozens of detailed design plans from America's premier potagers, and augmented by comprehensive lists of suitable plants, Bartley's entertaining and educational guide to kitchen gardening provides well-documented support for everyone interested in establishing an edible garden in their own backyard.

"Throughout the book you'll find many easily made, charming garden structures, from blanching devices for rhubarb to wonderful tepees and wattle fencing. I can't wait to use them all in my own garden. Nearly every one of the chapters made me desperate to rush outside and get busy. I read this 222-page, information-packed book in one sitting."—Vern Nelson, Oregonian, May 25, 2006 (Vern Nelson Oregonian )

"Check out the stunning examples in this 222-page hardback, and then consider a new edible approach using some of this book's suggestions such as enclosing the kitchen garden and planting in modules instead of straight rows."—George Weigel, Harrisburg Patriot-News, July 6, 2006 (George Weigel, Harrisburg Patriot-News )
"The entire book is lavishly illustrated with many color photographs and drawings that should inspire dedicated ornamental gardeners to become more involved with edible plants, so they can have their stylishness and eat it, too!"—HortIdeas, July 2006 (HortIdeas )

“This lushly illustrated, 250-page hardback shows layouts for gardens planned to keep their visual appeal throughout the year, gardens that are virtually outdoor rooms.”

Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast: 250 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Any Time of Day (Everyday Food (Clarkson Potter))
Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast: 250 Easy, Delicious Recipes for Any Time of Day (Everyday Food (Clarkson Potter))

Sample Recipe from Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast

Lamb Chops with Parsley Pesto
Serves 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes
Pesto made with parsley and sharp Pecorino Romano cheese (and without nuts) makes a colorful topping for tender lamb chops. It could also be tossed with pasta, spread on sandwiches, or mixed with cream cheese for a dip to serve with crudités.

Lamb Chops

8 lamb loin chops (each 4 ounces and 1 inch thick)

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 cup Parsley Pesto (recipe below)

Heat a large skillet over medium. Pat dry lamb with paper towels. Season chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook (in two batches, if necessary) 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve immediately, topped with pesto.

Parsley Pesto

Makes 1/2 cup

2 cups packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

3/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese (2 ounces)

1 small garlic clove, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for storing (optional)

Freshly ground pepper

In a food processor, finely chop parsley, cheese, and garlic. With the motor running, add oil in a slow, steady stream; season with pepper. Serve immediately, or transfer to an airtight container and cover with a thin layer of oil; refrigerate up to 4 days or freeze up to 3 months.
Freezing Pesto

Pesto keeps very well in the freezer, so it’s worth making extra. Freeze it in small airtight containers, covered with a thin layer of olive oil. Defrost in the refrigerator before using.

Dry Scalp ?

Why Is My Scalp So Dry and What Is the Best Way to Deal With It?

Why Is My Scalp So Dry and What Is the Best Way to Deal With It? by:Joe Giampa
First of all, let's take a look at some of the itchy scalp causes and see what may be done to prevent dry hair and scalp.
Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care with Almond Oil Dandruff Shampoo, 23.7-fluid ounces Bottles (Pack of 2)

Environmental factors
Make sure you use a sun-screening shampoo and conditioner, because the sun and wind will dry your scalp very quickly if you do not protect it. The chlorine in swimming pools is another culprit on the list of itchy scalp causes, so be careful to rinse your hair thoroughly afterwards and shampoo with a good quality shampoo that eliminates chlorine from the hair.
Check if you live in a 'hard water' area, because the calcium and other minerals in hard water can trigger scalp psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema and this could be the cause of your dry, flaky scalp.

Psoriasis, eczema and scalp dermatitis

These three skin conditions are well-known causes of dry skin on the body and scalp. The symptoms include skin inflammation which looks red and sore and itchy, scaly skin that flakes off when you scratch it.

Furthermore, there may be a certain amount of hair loss. If you have any of these symptoms, which may indicate scalp psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis you should consult a dermatologist who will be able to give you the correct diagnosis and advise you on the best dry scalp treatments.
