Remembering the innocence of your childhood, the freedom that you had in playing all day around and the chocolates and candies that you were eating are certainly part of your wonder years. This is when the important stages of memory development takes place. But how are these images accessible to you even in ones adults’ years when individuals have difficulties in memorizing things. Well these images are accessible to you through the process of memory development which includes both the utilization of long term memory and short term memory.
Obviously these images are accumulated in your mind from which you can access the large database of your brain. But this database is infinite, as unlike computer systems that have standard data storage capacity, the brain has an infinite amount of data storage where we memorize things. In fact the study of the brain other wise called neurology has found out new mechanisms of how memory functions in the brain.
Memory is the capacity to store, retain and retrieve information; your ability to do this is based upon both your long term memory and short term memory. These three processes are essential to follow each other in succession for efficient memory development. Unlike other organisms humans have a more complex brain structure which provides us the capability to accomplish complex tasks through the learning that we have inherited. This learning is accessible to you through the information that was stored in your mind which is imperative to memory development.
It might just seem a split of a second to remember somebody’s name but your neurons have responded to the immediate demand that your brain had made. That split second is the result of complex memory functions that your brain has undergone to recall that name.
Neuro science has found that processes of short-term memory and long-term memory (episodic memory) as the main types of memories. Now while retrieving your friends name as it was discussed above, does your brain use short-term or long-term memory? Obviously-long term memory as the name of your friend that you are trying to retrieve has been constantly revised through your brain which has led to the name being stored in the long term memory.
With this description of the mechanism of memory development it becomes imperative to elaborate as to how the short and long-term memory actually functions. First, your senses absorb all the physical stimulations that you acquire in terms of sight, smell, tactile and other senses. This registration of sensory memory in the brain is very important so as to differentiate between the different stimuli that the brain receives.
Photographic memory is in fact registered through the sight and its capacity to retain itself depends upon how long you have given attention to the stimulus. Once the sensory memory is registered in the brain it depends on how much attention a person pays to the sensory information so that now it can be registered in the short term memory which will augment memory development.
The short term memory stores information if sensory information has been rehearsed by the brain – a key component of memory development. Individuals do not feel the effect of the information that is remembered as this information is not properly rehearsed.
Therefore memory development is one of the most dynamic aspects to configuring an effective mind. It is the basis through which people gain consciousness without which one will not live a positive and happy life.

You’ve got plenty of gorgeous shoes, but are they office friendly? Your goal in the work environment is to project a professional image, no matter what position you hold. So, what exactly should you look for in a pair of women’s office shoes?
Rule#1: Never sacrifice comfort. Often times, a pair of women’s office shoes are hard to find, especially ones that are comfortable. Moreover, women tend to choose ones that appeal to their eyes and not to their feet. First thing’s first, you must keep in mind that most office women will be in their shoes for at least eight hours a day and let’s face it girls…normally we move around on our feet a lot more and often a lot faster on our feet! Therefore, it is important to consider a few things:
1. Padding and Support: Both of these need to be good quality to ensure comfort and to avoid foot related health problems (calluses, hammertoe, and toe & heel pain). Essentially, shoes with support will allow the foot muscles to work less, leading to more comfort.
2. Shoe Size/Fitting: Make sure the pair of shoes fit both of your feet. One of your feet may be bigger than the other, so it is important to try on both sides before making a purchase. Can you imagine having one shoe being too big, creating blisters, or one too small, cramming your toes? Both are just as uncomfortable. The rule of thumb is to allow at least a thumb’s width of wiggle space for your toes.
3. Shoe Width: Allow enough space for your feet so that your heel and ankle are not rubbing against the inside of the shoe.
Rule#2: Shop within your budget, but don’t overlook the small details. You don’t have to go out and splurge your money on an expensive pair of women’s office shoes; likewise, it doesn’t mean going with the cheapest pair you find either. Majority of the time, the amount of money you put in the pair of shoes reflects the quality. However, with a little bit of research, you can find a pair that matches your style and preference at a discounted price. Consider purchasing shoes online or at stores like Nordstrom Rack, Kohls or even TJ Maxx. You can find reasonably priced brand name shoes at these locations. Keep the following details in mind:
1. Regardless of the brand you choose, it is always good to look out for poorly sewn seams or cracked leather. These are usually clear signs that low quality materials are used.
2. The inner soles should always offer cushioned support.
3. The shoe should only bend at the ball of your foot.
4. The midsole should be firm but still be able to absorb shock.
5. The shape of the shoe must match your foot. For instance, if you have wide feet, make sure to purchase shoes that fit the width of your feet, otherwise the shoe will be uncomfortable.
Rule#3: Consider buying more than one type of women’s office shoes. Most women love shoes, so why not have a collection just for work? Having multiple pairs of office shoes is a great way to allow your feet to rest, especially if you wear heels most of the time. If you must wear heels at work, you should at least have two or three pairs to rotate, varying in height. The lower the heel, the more support and comfort you will have. Add one or more of the following types of women’s office shoes to your closet and you’re set:
1. Flats. Every woman should own a few pairs of flats, especially if standing or running errands come with the job. With the increase in popularity, flats come in many styles and colors. Flats are perfect for giving your feet a break every once in a while.
2. Kitten Heels. If you are not the type of woman that likes wearing particularly high heels, then the kitten heel is perfect for you. Kitten heels range from 1″ to 2 1/2″ in height, just giving you the boost you need. These heels make women look elegant, yet sexy and it doesn’t come with all of the health risks.
3. Oxfords. Oxfords come in many different styles, including wedges, lace up, platform, boots, and more. This classy style originated in the 17th century and was mainly worn by men. Today, women wear oxfords for both, casual and formal occasions because of its durability and comfort.
4. Pumps. Pumps are the most classic pair of women’s office shoes. Pumps are extremely versatile, especially when it comes to wearing office attire. You can match them up with a dress, skirt, pant suit or skirt suit. Consider wearing flat pumps in the office so that your feet are free from strain and pressure.
5. Wedge Heels. Wedge heels provide support for women, as their weight is distributed evenly throughout the shoe. Wedge heels are very stable and look very trendy. Wedge heels pair flawlessly with a skirt or dress in an office setting.

Perfumes have been with us for centuries, even before makeup arrived. But unlike makeup, perfumes are not limited to the female sex. Men, tough, brusque or not, enjoy this little vanity without any guilt. In fact, for some men, a scent does not just give the impression of what mood he is in, but also how much he earns.
People say that scent is everything. Perfume makers have always known that insects, animals and humans, release minute amounts of fragrances and odors called pheromones that could either serve as a defense, attack, or mating mechanism. This is the reason why an assortment of perfumes is available in the market that promises a particular effect. Certain fragrances can cause a woman to feel more feminine and soft or strong and in-control or fresh and vibrant. Mens line of fragrances, on the other hand, can create moods of inner strength, outdoor fun, and romance.
Because of the presence of need, perfume makers brought to the world designer perfumes. A designer perfume can either offer a perfume user the chance to display a particular mood, to exude the persona of a particular celebrity, or just bask in the image advertised by the designer perfume brand. A designer perfume, even it costs a fortune per ounce, became one of the fastest selling product under the cosmetics range due to the birth of mass media advertising. During the 1930s, the first designer perfume was created; the distinction belongs to the designer perfume Schocking for Schiaparelli.
A designer perfume aims at creating a distinct identity for its wearers. This identity is not limited to masculine and feminine fragrances. A designer perfume promises more complex identity packages such as exuding power, charisma, and appeal. Most designer perfume commercials on the billboard and the television impress upon the public that a certain line of fragrances can draw the difference between a normal or mediocre person and the interesting.
A designer perfume is sometimes named after a celebrity or a known figure in the society. An athlete is likely to endorse a sporty perfume, usually in cologne, that has a citrus, lime or dew as base, while a famous actor for an evening perfume with a hint of leather and musk, a bit woodsy, or some balsamic note.
To create the mood that you want, it is better to test a perfume on your wrists than to rely on the promises of its advertising. A certain designer perfume may smell sweet on your best friend but it may not smell the same on you. Your natural scent, body temperature and activity are factors that may affect the scent of a fragrance on the long haul.

Asides from having a baby, getting married is surely the biggest and most significant moment of a woman’s life. Every woman dreams of the moment she meets Mr. Right, how her life with Mr. Right will be and also her wedding day. There are many, many factors involved with weddings. From the time of the year to get married, to registry offices, churches, traditional or custom ceremonies, reception do’s, catering services, guest invitations, travel arrangements, cake decoration, the all important rings, and finally and perhaps most important for the bride to be, the wedding dress.
Every girl has dreamed of how she may look in a wedding dress, and may not wish to deviate too far from her dream wedding dress, although sometimes finding the exact sort of dress can be a nightmare. For instance, many off the shelf wedding dresses may not be in the correct size or be fully alterable to the correct specifications, and wedding dresses which are custom made can be astronomical in cost.
Wedding dresses come in many forms. The truth be told, some are outright ghastly, some are big and fancy, whilst some are more conservative and sleek. If one thing is for certain, there are wedding dresses for everybody.
While planning a wedding, whilst the ‘dream wedding’ and ‘dream dress’ and so forth may be engrained in the mind of the bride to be, in reality there must be room for compromise and change – it is highly unlikely a wedding can be planned with unwavering and uncompromising ideals. Some people are lucky and find the ideal wedding dress they have always wanted, whilst others may struggle to find a wedding dress which suits them or they feel is right for them. It is absolutely essential to try wedding dresses on so you know exactly how you will look, so it is advisable not to buy from catalogues but from shops.
A good and highly recommended starting point however is to buy a few wedding magazines or brochures which specialise in dresses. This way you can flick through, find which dresses you like and cut out the pictures and take them along to many of the wedding dress shops to see if there is anything similar or the same you may be able to try on.
Shop around. Don’t be afraid of trying every single wedding dress shop in your city and beyond, but don’t be too uncompromising if possible, and planning your wedding and the hunt for your wedding dress will be much less of a stress.
