Skiing Around the World

Ski is a device invented for skiing. It is a long board which is worn on the feet and allows a person to travel over the snow. Skiing has been popular in countries that have colder climates, and it has been recognized as a major sport in some famous tournaments across the globe. Even though there are techniques in skiing, which is difficult to master, this sport is still accessible for beginners and also for people who are oblivious about sports, but are very willing to learn.

Skiing is not only a popular winter sport, but it is also a recreational past time, providing fun and pleasure for all ages. Moreover, it also offers pure exhilaration and an unforgettable experience for people who wanted to unwind from a busy day or even hang-out with family or friends. Gliding through the snow, breathing in the air of an expansive open valley and being able to glance and see the views at the top of the hill or mountain are an opportunity surely we can’t miss experiencing.

Furthermore, unlike other sports, skiing is also accessible to people with disabilities, may it be a physical or cognitive disability. For instance, a skier who is blind is provided with an audible clue to aid and guide him. In addition to that, disabled skiers are also given an opportunity to join tournaments.

Despite the fact that skiing is only accessible to countries that have colder climates such as Norway, Switzerland, France, Spain, USA, Italy, Austria, Canada and Bulgaria, tourists still flock to these places just to experience fun and pleasure. However, because of the advancement of today’s technology, skiing is even made possible for tropical and hot countries. Dubai, for example, has an indoor resort for skiing and other recreations in snow setting.

When to Wear Casual Dresses

Women are basically caught up with the dilemma of choosing which appropriate dress should be worn on special occasions, and this includes when to wear casual or formal dresses. Well, I have some tips for you.

First, you must always consider the fabric. This will become your basis on what dress should be appropriate for the weather and time of the year. The second thing to consider is the occasion. Although women’s casual dresses can carry through various occasions, there are still some events were wearing it is inappropriate just like when you thought that not buying a ps3 bundle is a good idea because it is a good idea.

However, if you insist of wearing casual dresses because you are not comfortable with other dresses, do not worry because there is a solution to that. You just need to be fashionable enough to pair your casual dress to make it more presentable and appropriate. For instance, in a business casual setting, a smart jacket or cardigan can be paired with a casual dress to present a professional image.

Wearing Equestrian Helmets for Fashion

Few years ago, helmets and fashion style is not the words that anyone would associate with. However, because of the tremendous change of fashion and entertainment, designs and styles of helmets have become a reflection to one’s personal trademark and choice. Because of this, helmet has become a fashion trend, globally.

I believe that new styles and fashion are always important even if you are just on your sports or normal, everyday attire. In my own perspective, helmets are really dull, boring and unattractive, which could make you look like a dork. However, a large section of riders or cyclist wanted to make a fashion statement with equestrian helmets, even if they do not intend to ride horses. This is because they wanted it to complement to their look, and be unique from others. This has changed my perception to helmets, and I think it is really very classy and fashionable to look at. Maybe, I should wear one!

Equestrian Outfits

Yesterday, I was watching PBO (Pinoy Box Office), a TV channel available here in the Philippines only and I am quite astonished by Mikee Cojuangco’s acting. Sometimes her hobby is included in the setting or in the movie. She is an equestrian in real life and I love the way she moves inside the arena (if that is what people call it).

Her equestrian outfits are so cool paired with her equestrian helmets. I don’t know if I can carry such outfit like she do and I also do not think that I can manage to ride a horse and let it gallop or jump high with me riding on it.

Close Shoes

I am not a fan of close shoes, flats or with heels because I am more used to wearing my flip-flops and slippers. But last week, I was compelled to buy one because I needed one. We had a meeting at the Coca-Cola New Plant in Villanueva and we are not allowed to enter the Plant if we will not wear close shoes.

So, after buying dresses, I also went shoe-shopping and saw this one:

I think this is not the original one because the price is much lower and I got this in shops along the aisle at Big R. Nevertheless, having this shoe helps me when I have emergency meetings because I always kept this one in the car.
