Why kiss? Here’s a few good reasons

Happy Valentine’s Day to all our fabulous fans and followers!  Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your honey or whether you un-valentine, it never hurts to peck a few lips and here’s why:

1. Burns Calories.  Really, what’s funner a kiss or two, or time on the treadmill?  My vote is definitely a kiss or two, which will actually burn about 2 calories per minute.  Not much, but if you kiss for a while….well…you get the idea.

2. Better Dental Visits. The last thing you are thinking of while kissing a loved one is your teeth, other than how clean they are, but it’s true. Kissing results in more saliva being produced which in turn results in killing more mouth bacteria.  Just please make sure you don’t drool…

3.  It’s a Natural Pain Killer.  The next time you stub your toe or have a migraine, give a good smooch.  Kissing releases oxytocin, dopamine and endorphins.  Dopamine is responsible for feelings of pleasure and endorphins are known to relieve pain in the body and also lead to feelings of euphoria.  Perhaps this is why (true story) I actually had a doctor tell me to “visit my husband” the next time I had a migraine.  I never went back to him, but maybe he was actually on to something!

4.  Kissing is a Stress Reducer.  The oxytocin that our brain creates increases as we kiss.  Oxytocin is the hormone thought to reduce stress and also increase feelings of happiness.  

5.  Increases Your Emotional Connection.  The most important reason to kiss for sure!  Cavities, stress and pain aside, being emotionally connected to those we love is the BEST side effect of kissing that I can think of.

Gone with the Wind, 5 reasons to kiss,

For those of you who un-valentine today, these benefits don’t only work for kissing your honey.  Give a child a peck on the head, smooch your puppy…it will brighten your day and make you happy!

Why You Need Blue

Blue is such a fabulous color.  For those of you Housewives fans, you probably noticed everyone showing up in blue for Adrienne’s dinner party a few weeks ago.  There’s a reason.  Anyone can wear blue.  Blondes, redheads, brunettes, pale skin, dark skin, blue eyes, brown eyes, green eyes. Blue is everyone’s friend.  Blue doesn’t discriminate and Blue will never let you down.

Blue is one of the Primary colors; and can range from light like a robins egg to deep and dark like the night sky.  Diviine Modestee has quite a few blue dresses, in several different hues and I’m going to highlight two of my favs:

This navy blue wrap dress on the right is the Taylor and it is a classic wrap dress.  The great thing about a wrap dress in general is that there is more versatility in sizing, so if you are like me and find your weight fluctuating according to whether Cadbury Mini-Eggs are in season or not, then this dress is a fantastic choice.

The dress below, is one of our newest designs called Serena. It’s not even available on our website yet!  But never-fear, you can still get this dress by calling our office.

As soon as this dress arrived in our warehouse i snagged mine and I absolutely LOVE it.  One of the best things about this dress:  you get to order it a size smaller than you normally would!  This dress makes me a Medium!  How can I complain about that??  On top of running a tad large, it is also extremely flattering on my problem area: the stomach.  It is such a beautiful and different shade of blue that it is a true stand-out.

Visit our website to see a few more dresses that Diviine Modestee offers in blue: the Brecken and the Madison.

An Addition to the Diviine ModesTee Family

A big congratulations to Natalie, Diviine ModesTee’s Bookkeeper, on the birth of her second daughter Brighton Estelle!  A fairly easy delivery after a fairly long labor.  And best yet, two hours after giving birth Natalie was up signing checks.  What a woman!

Look what a sweetie-doll Brighton is.  I love when babies sleep with their little arms all curled up around their face.  So sweet…

According to Mom, Brighton is already developing a unique personality and her big sister Addie loves her so much that she wants to be with her all the time, “helping”.  Mom is already back at work with sleeping baby by her side.  Yea…we won’t talk about how long it took me to get back to a normal routine.  Nope.

Congrats to Mom, Dad and big sis!
