Almonds are one of my favorite snacks. They are full of the same healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil known to prevent heart disease. Nuts such as almonds also help lower cholesterol according to the British Journal of Nutrition. Almonds contain Vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. Eating almonds is known to reduce glycemic index.
Another benefit from the Journal of Obesity is that people who eat nuts at least two times a week were 31% less likely to gain weight than those who never eat nuts, although many people believe the opposite is true.

The always fabulous Oscar winning actress Halle Berry is featured as cover girl on the all important September Fall Fashion issue of American VOGUE. There have been so few black women to have this coveted spot. Naomi Campbell is the only black model to be featured on the cover in the prestigious fall fashion issue. This is major, not to mention overdue. I love it!

Always confidently rocking her individuality in music and style, Grammy winning artist Erykah Badu unveiled a new blond Mohawk in performances this weekend including the Lollapalooza Music Festival.
She revealed in an interview with Billboard Magazine that among new beginnings will be a jewelry line "Funktional Art" featuring "Baduwings" and "Earwings". The line is available as a part of the tour merchandise and will be available at select stores around the U.S and Europe.
The "Earwings" shown are boldly fantastic. Erykah has always worn striking accessories and I imagine there will many unique looks to come in the line. As a longtime fan of vintage clothing myself, I like the way she rocked the dress as well funking it up with the Louis Vuitton belt with the oversized cuffs and black booties . The look is right in line with ladylike looks for fall with the circle skirt silhouette being a hot option.

The summer is the optimum time to enjoy this fruit, though you can get them year round frozen, dried and as juice. Cherries contain Vitamin C, potassium and have been shown to have a beneficial effect on the eyes because of their lutein and zeaxanthin properties. According to researchers a flavonoid found in cherries has anticarcinogenic called quercetin which can help prevent heart disease. The soluble fiber in cherries may also have a positive influence on cholesterol. Cherries also contain antocyanins which may help relieve muscle and soreness.

Chunky buttons incorporating the military style will continue to be an option for Fall/Winter. There's a variation on the shape in their signature plaid bag as well which I'm sure will delight many women. You can achieve this look at various price points if you shop around.
