Here’s How to Work and Tone Your Waist

Unfortunately, we cannot pick and choose where we slim down, the waistline included. As they say, “abs are built in the kitchen,” and the same holds true for losing weight around your waist. You can, however, tone and strengthen the area with these exercises that target the obliques to create a powerful core. And don’t forget that firing your deep abs, the transverse abdominals (aka TVA), decreases the diameter of the waist. With all your ab work, and pretty much every other exercise too, focus on pulling your abs to your spine as you exhale to work your TVA while also working your obliques.

Here’s How French Fashion Girls Are Decorating Their Apartments Right Now

You may have noticed that we are major Francophiles over here at Who What Wear. From their effortlessly chic style and nonchalant aesthetic in fashion and beauty, we’re utterly captivated by that French je ne sais quoi. Naturally, French-girl style extends to their home décor. A fashionable French woman’s apartment is chic yet welcoming, classic with a modern edge, and sophisticated without looking like she’s ever tried too hard. The spaces feature a perfect mix of vintage and contemporary pieces without looking too precious or extravagant. Essentially French women’s spaces are timeless, classic, and cool—just like the women who live in them. So how do we emulate that aesthetic in our own homes? And just how are our fashionable French …

Cozy studio space in a warm palette

Another great example of a small studio space, decorated to perfection to fit the needs of the person who lives there, yet not making any sacrifices to style. The warm look of the living room/bedroom works perfectly and I love the way the bed is fitted exactly into that niche in the corner. The textiles add a lot of character to this look. The sofa is decorated with a mixture of velvet pillows*, combined with a linen throw* all in a very warm color palette. The bed on the other hand has this fresh linen look with white linen bedsheets* combined with muted colors. The hanging linen piece above the bed also works as a perfect divider between both areas. …

You’ll Love Looking at Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s Royal Milestones, Side by Side

Looking at photos of Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s strikingly similar debuts last year got us thinking about how many other exciting (and likely overwhelming) first-time experiences they’ve shared as regular women who happened to become royalty. Meghan’s whirlwind 2018 was full of fun firsts, from being on the balcony at Trooping the Colour to a solo outing with Queen Elizabeth II and even her first royal tour with Prince Harry. Kate Middleton made a lot of the same moves back in 2008 while dating William, and ticked even more firsts off her list after they got engaged in 2010. We’ve put Kate and Meghan’s royal firsts side by side, from wedding days to royal outings to their respective first …

Why It’s Vital To Discipline, Even As A Gentle Parent

Discipline is sometimes seen as a dirty word – I think we all remember being disciplined as children. Perhaps we resented it at the time or recognise in hindsight that we were treated unfairly. But when I talk about discipline, I don’t mean being yelled at. I don’t mean smacking or being sent to your room. I don’t even mean punishments. Because the word “discipline” actually comes from the word for “disciple”. Knowing this gives me a different perspective on discipline – I’m now thinking about developing them, nurturing them, guiding them. Children need discipline Children come to us blank. They don’t know what is right and wrong. They don’t realise that playing with the plug socket is dangerous, or …
