The Natural Way to Feel More Empowered As a Woman

Gone are the days when the "male chauvinist" society had women as far inferior as men—very dependent and submissive to whatever the latter commanded. Women today are not just regarded as homemakers, but nation-builders as well. Beyond the confines of their houses, they, too, can make a big difference––be it in the economic, social or political arena. 

From being a household queen to boardroom’s rockstar, women run on very hectic and active schedules everyday. So imagine the strength they have to withstand the daily grinds, not to mention the stress and pressure they have to endure just to fulfill the duties bestowed upon them.

Nevertheless, they’re no “Wonder Woman” at all, nor our very own heroine “Darna” so as not to feel exhausted and tired from chores or work. They’re also humans, who need to pause for a break from being the jack-of-all-trades. 


This March—declared as International Women’s Month—is the best time to celebrate their power and influence with the gift of beauty and wellness that they truly deserve. What a better way to have it than a rosy, bouncy and shiny hair to begin with.

Because it is the mane that a person is mainly looked upon, it’s a conscious effort for everyone, especially women, to make it pleasant to gaze at. So a regular bottled shampoo and conditioner, plus treatment are, more often than not, the solutions to turn to, regardless of the bad effects they may cause.

Some of the harmful chemicals they contain are too much to handle, especially by as fragile as a hair follicle. Their main damage being mane breakage is hard to manage. Tricky it is to treat the resulting tress that’s less weak and elastic. Though negligible, other repercussions—allergic reaction and scalp irritation—also need keen attention and urgent solution. 


Where else do women usually turn to for remedy than a beauty salon. After a pampering sesh, they may opt to avail any of their formulated solution for upkeep. For optimum results, it’s best to combine it with NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack to promote robust locks and scalp.

NOVUHAIR is the only tress growth product in the market containing 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients working synergistically to help remedy mane problems from growth to vanishing. It deeply penetrates to help rejuvenate, nourish, maintain moisture in the scalp and hair, and improve the overall appearance of the tress. Lastly, it’s an effective and safe solution to arrest hair loss. 

So come and celebrate womanhood at your favorite salon anytime this month. Much better if you can make it regularly to bond with your sisters or besties over a hair spa or treatment. After all, your crowning glory deserves a second look.

Experiment and Create Majestic Landscaping Designs with Silk Trees

Creating good landscaping designs at the offices or commercial establishments require a lot of creativity and application of modern techniques to ensure that it suits the requirements while keeping it economical and within the budget. One needs to do some experimenting with the landscaping items to find out which are the best ones to use in designing for one's space. A great landscaping design is very important since it creates goodwill which will eventually attract a lot of clients or customers which good for the business. On the other hand, a not-so-good landscaping design will reflect the same in its business clients.


Essentials for creating a majestic landscape at the office

A majestic landscaping design requires excellent ideas and creative experimentation with the modern landscaping techniques. The use of ornamental trees like the Capensia can be a great idea however, there are some limitations for using such plants and trees.Thus, most of the time the use of large artificial trees in landscaping is the best alternative.  


Drawbacks of natural plants and trees in landscaping

Some of the common problems with the use of natural plants and trees in landscaping at the offices and public buildings are the following: 

  • High Maintenance - natural plants and trees like the capensia tree requires high maintenance including regular watering and pruning. It also involves the application of fertilizers and insecticides whenever required. 
  • Optimum conditions- the natural plants and trees will not grow everywhere and will need the outdoor conditions to survive (e.g. adequate sunlight and air) Thus, it would be difficult for these plants to thrive inside the office. 
  • Regular cleaning- one will have to clean the place of the dried leaves and litters from the tree which is one of the major considerations in the office landscaping. Many plants and trees will attract flies and insects which is also a major concern in the offices.
  • Limilifespanspan- the plants and trees have a limited lifespan which means it needs to be replaced after certain time. On the other hand, the artificial greenery  will last for a lifetime once they are placed.
  • Can’t be moved - after you created a landscape design, it would be difficult to move the plants or trees and recreate the design. This is something not possible with the natural plants and trees thus, the use of artificial foliage is getting popular. 
Talking about the natural Capensia tree, the drawbacks will be more as they are ornamental trees and its natural habitat is in the South African forests. So, they won’t survive in all climatic conditions. The artificial Capensia tree is a great alternative with a lot of advantages.

Reasons for choosing the artificial Capensia tree for a majestic landscape in your office:

The artificial Capensia is a great choice for a majestic landscape at your office. Here are some of the advantages:

  • The artificial Capensia tree has a green color on one side of the leaves and a marvelous maroon color on the other which is a rarity among the ornamental plants. It will be a great sight at your office.
  • The item is best suited for indoor as well as outdoor landscaping. The polyester leaves and the natural wood stem of the tree are durable to harsh weather conditions. You need not worry about the color fading away due to exposure to outdoor conditions.

  • You can use the silk Capensia tree according to occasions. You can use it indoors during the indoor office parties to treat your guests and shift them outdoors otherwise for a great outdoor landscape.
  • The silk Capensia tree is available in sizes ranging from 5’ to 8’ which lets you choose the ideal size for the location in your office.

The Capensia tree will look more natural outdoors like any other natural tree. You can pick up any spot and experiment it with the landscaping item. The majestic view of the Capensia tree will be a treat to the eyes as the viewers cherish its charm.

You can experiment with some locations like the lawn outside the office or near the entrance area where it will get the maximum views. You can place the outdoor artificial tree in a separate garden or just place it on a stand near the gate; it is sure to turn some heads and get a lot of appreciation. One thing you should keep in mind while experimenting with the position of the artificial greenery is that you must place it at such a location where it will get the focus of the people and placing some lights near it at night will give a heavenly look.

Picking the ideal place for the artificial Capensia tree indoors

The artificial Capensia tree will look magical indoors as large natural trees don’t usually grow indoors.

For Safety, Wear Proper Motorcycle Gear

There are both men and women bikers, but men bikers outnumbered women bikers. When it comes to shopping for motorcycle gear, there not many choices for the women to choose from. But for the men, they can easily find something that they like at the store, pick it up and try it on. If it fits and the quality is acceptable, they pay for it, and the shopping is complete!

Women bikers, whether they are riders or passenger, have to understand that shopping for motorcycle gear is not the same as shopping for their clothing. Whether one is the rider or the passenger, both must understand about taking safety precaution and to put on motorcycle safety gear whenever they get on a bike. Both must understand the consequences of falling off the motorcycle without wearing proper motorcycle apparel.


When it comes to shopping for proper motorcycle apparel, women bikers have to understand that safety must come first. Wearing the size that fits without restricting the necessary movement is important. Choosing and wearing motorcycle gear is first and foremost about safety protection and proper fit, and not so much about looking good.

When we shop for women’s motorcycle jackets, it is different from trying on clothes in front of a mirror. We must understand that motorcycle jackets are designed to fit and perform best when seated on a bike, not standing beside one. Motorcycle jackets are meant to fit snugly at the chest and loose across the shoulder so that when the arms reach out for the handlebars, all will fit properly. The jacket sleeves should also be longer than usual.

There are different types of motorcycle riding jackets. Most are designed to work in more than one season. These jackets have removable liners and strategically placed ventilation for more airflow. There are also waterproof jackets with covered or sealed zippers to keep the bikers dry. Some jackets may have straps on the sleeves to help keep armour in place.

Good quality motorcycle safety apparel is designed for protection against impact and abrasion resistance. The apparel should accommodate armour to be crashworthy. The apparel should be made of high-quality materials that are abrasion resistance e.g. leather and should be stitched with a material that won’t give way to impact.


Motorcycle pants should run slightly long so that the knee armour slides perfectly into place when your feet are on the pegs. Some pants have the ability to adjust your knee armour up or down depending on how tall you are. Choose riding gloves with a pre-curved fit so they feel comfortable when gripping the bar. Riding boots should limit your foot from excessive forward or backward movement.
