Women’s bathrobes come in a variety of lengths, styles, and fabrics, and therefore you have to do a bit of homework before you go out and buy one for yourself. When shopping for the bathrobe for women, the most important considerations should be comfort and fit. The rest of the things can wait. Here is a step-by-step instructions list that would help you figure out which bathrobe would best serve your needs.

  1. Decide the type of bathrobe you’d like to shop for; bathrobes come in different sizes such as short mid-thigh length, knee length, calf length, and full length. You don’t need to decide this in a minute or two; take your time; speak to a few friends who have bathrobes and then decide the type.
  2. Cotton is used as a preferred fabric for bathrobes; however, cotton also varies in quality and price. On your part, you should see to it that your skin is feeling good with the fabric on.
  3. A bathrobe for women may have different closure styles. Some robes have open fronts with tie belts; others may have front zipper closers, while the rest may have front button closure. Decide the style of closure you’d be most comfortable with.
  4. Your body type also matters in the selection of ideal bathrobe for women. If you are petite, you may like to buy a bathrobe that is short and fits you well. If you are plus-size, then you may like to consider a longer robe so that you can wear it comfortably.
  5. Buy only from a brand that you can trust. Bathrobe is something that you’d use almost every day and like it to be the most comfortable thing on your body. This can be ensured only when you buy the bathrobe from a company that has been around for long, and invests in research & development for introducing a fine range of bathrobes for its customers. So you better look online for a few minutes to get to know the top players in the bathrobe market and the range they have to offer.

Buenos Aires – A Bargain Hunters Dream!

Not very long ago the currency of Buenos Aires was tied to the US dollar. While this fabulous city offered great panache and European flair, it had spiraling inflation and was as pricey to visit as any other major metropolis. That all changed in 2002 when the Argentine Peso was liberated to float on its own and experienced a significant devaluation. In the five years since, while the Peso has slowly gained in value, Argentina has become the darling of jet set travelers flocking to bargain shop in trendy boutiques filled with European designer goods, dine in world class restaurants and learn to Tango.

So what makes this city such a magnet for those in the know? Quite simply, the city sizzles! Often called the Paris of South America, the streets hum with the exuberance of a culture that has embraced its uniqueness and has rediscovered its youthful vitality. Buenos Aires enjoys a vibrant cafe society where
artisans mold works of vibrant color, musicians old and young revel in the music of the street, and nothing seems more important than gathering with friends to discuss the news of the day.

Fashioned by immigrants from Europe, the architecture of Buenos Aires evokes feelings of Rome, Paris and Barcelona. The city is home to numerous landscaped parks, a world famous opera house, well respected museums, magnificent churches and broad avenues filled with trendy shops selling designer goods at a fraction of their Euro prices. Tango bars and techno clubs abound to make Buenos Aires one of the great nightlife cities of the world. And do not leave without purchasing some of their world famous custom crafted leather goods.

So let’s review 7 reasons why you should hop on a plane to Buenos Aires as soon as you can:

1)It is a fun, sophisticated city with museums galore, cafes for dining, boutiques for shopping, on streets that could have been lifted straight from France or Spain.

2) The tremendously good rate of exchange means all your activities and purchases will be a terrific value.

3) Because Argentina is in the southern hemisphere, they have summer when we are having winter. January, February and March see temperatures averaging 80 degrees. Likewise, when we’re hot and steamy in summer, they are having temps in the 60’s.

4) Shopping is divine, with supple leathers and designer clothes being the best bargain.

5) Dining is world class. Try their famous Argentinean Beef at incredible prices.

6) The nightlife positively sizzles to a Tango beat.

7) For all you sports fans, no one loves their football (soccer) more than Argentines! Soccer, polo and horse racing are much loved as well and draw huge crowds. You may want to bring along your golf clubs, as BA is home to several exquisite golf courses.

Buenos Aires – Tango With Luxury

Buenos Aires is a bright city of melancholia set to a dance-step; a tango town of once-fabulous wealth and now of nostalgic mansions gone to delicious decrepitude; the city of jackbooted generals and the Mothers of the Disappeared, of Maradona and even, briefly, of Madonna.

There’s more to Buenos Aires than memories of tarts, tango and generalissimos. This city of Belle Epoque elegance and endlessly wide avenues is like no other Latin American capital. From the red, pink and blue houses of Caminita to the centre’s grandiose edifices, it is a city of fascinations.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

In addition to its hip-swinging culture, the city is also host to a slew of high-end luxury hotels to make your stay as decadent as possible.

Alvear Palace Hotel: The most elegant and comfortable luxury hotel in Buenos Aires. It glories in its Louis XIV and Empire style – all marble, gilt and elaborate stucco. The suites on the ninth and tenth floors have the best views over the Parks and the River Plate.

The Mansion: A century-old palace with period rooms and suites. The eleventh and twelfth floors of the main building allow faraway views of the madness of the Avenida 9 de Julio (Avenue of the 9th July), Buenos Aires’ massive, multi-laned main street, with obelisk commemorating the city’s 400 years.

Faena Hotel: Rock-star glamour finds its home at uber-designer Philippe Stark’s edgy take on luxury hotels, all done up in piano black and red leather.

Two to Tango

They say the dance reflects the soul of Argentina: melancholy, wistful, erotic. It originated in working-class neighbourhoods, such as San Telmo itself, as a rough and ready musical style often accompanied by obscene lyrics. Later it was refined, and embraced, by all of Argentina. There’s nothing better than to linger on the street, talking to the artists and watching the tango dancers: Buenos Aires at its brilliant best.

Cafe Dorrego: As an entre to this most theatrical of dances, head for the Sunday morning antiques market in the bohemian barrio of San Telmo, where dancers perform in front of the Cafe on Plaza Dorrego. Watch as dancers twirl and pout in the shadows of evening, accompanied by the haunting banoneon concertina and the raspy voices of elderly men.

Markets denied from the highs

In the previous article, I mentioned that there’s a possibility for these all-time-high markets to have a correction. There it is! This past week, the DJIA had lost around 400 points from its highs at 16,450 level. While the 16,000 level is a big support level, I believe the markets will head lower maybe to 15,600 to 15,700 level in the coming week.

We started off with a weak China export data on Monday; it caused the world stocks, copper, and oil all dipped during the trading session. On Tuesday, J.C. Penney got an upgrade. Additionally, Men’s Wearhouse paid $65 per share to buy Jos. A. Bank (finally). On Wednesday, Federal Trade Commission opened inquiry into Herbalife; Herbalife dropped more than 7% on the same day. On Thursday, stocks fell sharply – more than 200 point – because of the Ukraine worries. Moreover, Amazon raised the price of Prime membership to $99 per year – that’s a 25% increase since nine years ago when the Prime first introduced to the public. More news from Thursday: U.S. budget deficit narrows in first five months of fiscal year; Number of U.S. millionaires hits new high; U.S. environmental agency drops ban on federal contracts with BP; Shell cuts spending in U.S. to lower shale exposure. On Friday, the FDIC sued large banks for their alleged role in manipulating a global benchmark used t o determine interest rates on everything from home loans to corporate debt. More news from Friday: Treasuries posted largest weekly gain in two years; GoDaddy eyed initial public offering; Wall Street ended lower on jitters over upcoming Crimea vote on Sunday; Chinese social media company Weibo plans US debut.

As you can see, many of these news are negative. Next week, we want to see if the DJIA can maintain above the 16,000 level – the key level. If it cannot maintain that level, then the market will drop lower straight to the 15,600 to 15,700 level.

Thank you Metro and UPS

On Thursday March 13, 2014, after taking We The Enslaved to UPS near the New Carrollton Metro Station to be shipped to the Avenue of the Stars in Los Angeles a strong gust of wind blew the writer’s Fedora off of his head in the freezing cold as he waited for the train back to Washington, D.C.

In a scene out of a Buster Keaton movie, the hat was being blown down the Metro platform as if it were being pulled by a string. In an attempt to bend over to grab the hat, as it flew through the air, the writer fell on the tracks as horrified Metro employees and customers looked on.

It happened so fast that only Metro security cameras captured the hat flying onto the tracks and its owner falling after it. “Push the button,” was shouted by Metro employees. It was all happening very fast. The scheduled train had to be stopped. If the workers could not hoist the body off of the tracks before the train arrived there would have been a very grisly death.

Down on the Metro tracks it is impossible to get back on the platform without assistance. The distance from the platform to the rails is deceptively deep. Without the assistance of the Metro station men who ran to the platform and grabbed the writer’s right hand this article would not be written.

“I am guilty. I did it. It was my fault. I fell onto the tracks while chasing my hat that a strong gust of wind blew off my head,” said the writer.

“Never, ever, fall onto the Metro tracks for any reason! You could have been killed,” said the Metro employee.Sitting down as other Metro employees and customers checked to see if the writer was OK, the thought occurred that most deadly accidents occur in a split second. There is rarely time to think. Obviously a $40 dollar hat is not worth a human life. Even catching a cold for standing in the bitter cold is not worth a human life.

However trying to catch a hat directly in front of you as the strong wind blows it closer and closer to the edge of the platform is not part of a plan to jump onto the tracks. It is being caught up in the moment and not realizing where you are until after the hat is in hand.

Many people have lost their lives jumping into a body of water to save a life. The men who reached down into the tracks to save the writer could have also been killed.

Walking away from a near death experience is always a waking revelation. The muscle strain from being pulled and hoisted around took 24 hours to set in after leaving the evening of Library of Congress research and locating a chapter written nearly 30 years ago that the author had forgotten.

As Library of Congress staff member Kimberly Winfrey brought his book out of the Library of Congress Collections, the memory of the Metro incident still fresh, tears of joy filled the writer’s eyes.

The pages of the book were in mint condition thanks to the dedication and hard work of Library of Congress staff. The photos in the book of a much younger, black versus gray haired, writer brought back memories of a wonderful life almost lost on the cold Metro tracks.

Metro asked the writer to remind all customers to never go on the tracks for any reason. Hats, cellphones, purses, can all be replaced. If a person accidentally falls on the tracks alert the station manager immediately. If there are very strong winds stay away from the edge of the train platform.

Thank you, Metro and UPS.
