Baby Girl, Cool Costumes

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Every little girl loves to play dress up and this party idea is very affordable and offers plenty of fun and creativity for a fairly large amount of friends and can even accommodate a wide variety of ages. The first thing you need to do is network! Call all your friends and track down as many Storybook costumes as you can. You may be surprised how many of these costumes were used at Halloween and will not cost you anything to borrow. You will also need a few moms, Grandma or favorite teenage babysitter to help out. Meet with all helpers before hand, explain your theme and encourage them to help the young girls feel truly madeover and beautiful.
Set up stations in different rooms of the house and rotate with Music. Keep your groups of girls small, no more than 4 per group but 2 would be ideal! Use your creativity in setting up stations. You could have a station for:

Painting fingernails

Offer a couple of different colors for them to choose from. Offer decal stickers or glitter to jazz up the activity. Allow plenty of time to let their nails dry......

Bananas with dark patches on yellow skin

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

The fully ripe banana produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor) which has  the ability to combat abnormal cells. So don't be surprised very soon the shop will go out of stock for bananas. As the banana ripens, it develops dark spots or patches on the skin. The more dark patches it has, the higher will be its' immunity enhancement quality . Hence the Japanese love bananas for a good reason.

According to a Japanese scientific research, banana contains TNF which has anti-cancer properties. The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the degree of ripeness of the fruit, i.e. the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality..

In an animal experiment carried out by a professor in Tokyo University comparing the various health benefits of different fruits, using banana, grape, apple, water melon, pineapple, pear and persimmon, it was found that banana gave the best results. It increased the number of white blood cells, enhanced the immunity of the body and produced anti-cancer substance TNF.

The recommendation is to eat 1 to 2 banana a day to increase your body immunity to diseases like cold, flu and others. According to the Japanese professor, yellow skin bananas with dark spots
on it are 8 times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than the green skin version.
