It seems that yoga has is very relaxing and popular among most celebrities, especially Pamela Anderson.

The 46-year-old former Baywatch star was in Hawaii on a family vacation practicing yoga outside of her hotel room.

Anderson also hit the beach in a two-piece, still looking good. Perhaps the yoga exercises have assisted in her maintaining her beach body!

The benefits of yoga can not only give you a sense of peace and calmness when doing so, like Anderson, but it can also help maintain a healthy weight.

So try some yoga if you want to maintain a great bod like Pammy!

Mel C says that she is training by running three times a week aside from hitting the gym, biking, and swimming.

She also is a little challenged by the distance, saying:

“It will be the furthest I’ve run in my whole life. I have been having lots of fun in the triathlon and enjoying the different disciplines of the swim, bike and run but I have never done long distances.”

As far as eating while training for the run, Mel C admitted that she is stocking up on carbs.

“It’s just a case of making sure you have enough fuel when you are demanding more of your body. So I am having more carbs for energy. I also have to make sure I eat regularly and never leave long gaps so I always having something in the tank,” Mel C says.

Fashion Brands spending the Moolah on Plus Size Clothing

picstitch-9

A few fashion retailers have taken in to the new plus size craze.

Retailer Modcloth has started to sell a lot of plus size clothing, launching the larger sizes last year.

Their plus size offering now has gained 8 percent of sales because customers who purchase plus size clothing spend more than people that purchase smaller sizes.

The label talked with the Wall Street Journal, saying:

“New plus-size customers spend 25 percent more per order, buy 17 percent more items per order than regular-sized shoppers, and are 66 percent more likely to spreak the ModCloth gospel via social media.”

The size of the average U.S. woman is around size 14, but most fashion labels’ largest size is a 12. But because of this, there is a demand for nice clothes for larger women.

Just recently, retailer Mango announced that they too will launch a plus size collection.

And H&M was also praised for casting a size 12 model in a swimwear shoot without mentioning plus size in the ad. They too joined in the demand, now selling both plus size clothing and swimwear.
