Everyday brushes
 
Synthetic Bristle Brush: 
This brush is great for those of you with thicker hair. The synthetic bristles will help to detangle without causing frizz from static. Girls with thinner hair may find that this type of brush leaves their strands dry and dull looking. 
 
Natural Bristle Brush: 
As opposed to the last one, this brush is ideal for girls with thinner, straighter hair.  The natural bristles, which are usually made form Boar bristles help to spread the natural oils of your hair out evenly, keeping your hair looking full and shiny. 
 
Mixed Bristle Brush:
This brush is what you will find most stylists using as it contains the best aspects of both of the previous brushes. 
 
Paddle Brushes: 
This brush is very similar to the Synthetic Bristle Brush but much wider and sturdier. If you have very thick or very big hair you may find that you pull the bristles right out of a normal Synthetic Bristle Brush. If that is the case, the paddle brush is perfect for you!
Styling Brushes:
 
Vented Brushes: 
These thin brushes with holes in the center are great for blow-drying thinner hair. Using an everyday brush will add a lot of time to the blow drying whereas a vented brush is made to allow your hair to dry as quickly as possible.
 
Round Brush: 
Great for girls with naturally wavy hair who are fond of the blowout look.  This brush will shape a gently curling blowout without needing to visit a salon.
 
Teasing Brush: 
This small brush is used to give you hair a little extra volume by actually tangling it. Teasing brushes work equally well on any hair type though the tease itself will stay much better in hair with a bit of natural volume than straight hair. 
 
Rattail Comb: 
The pointed end of this comb is perfect for separating hair in even sections with straight lines or adjusting your natural part. Stylists will usually use tis comb when doing braids to ensure that the sections are even and the parts are all straight. 
 
Wide Tooth Comb: 
Many girls with thick, curly hair find that they cannot brush their hair after it dries or they end up with a gigantic pile of frizz on their head. For you the wide tooth comb is the perfect middle ground. Using a brush on wet hair can be damaging but the wide-toothed comb will be gentle while detangling and allow you to avoid the frizz-fest later. 
 
Like with skin, girls often find that their hair often ends up looking dry, which looks frizzy and dull, oily, which never looks clean or maybe even a mixture depending on the day.  What you need to do is get to know your hair. Take note of the days that it is greasy and what you did to clean it that morning and adjust the amount of products you use.

Here are some tips for different types of hair:
 
Oily Hair:
-Make sure your shampoos and conditioners are meant for the thickness of your hair. If you are using a thick-hair conditioner on thin hair it will add to the oiliness. 
-Try cleaning your hair every other day rather than every day. Contrary to popular belief, the oil glands in your scalp are triggered by massages, making frequent and rough shampooing likely to make your hair look dirtier and greasier rather than cleaner.
-Use the flats of your fingers when applying shampoo rather than nails for a gentler clean.
 
Dry Hair:
-Make sure you aren’t coloring your hair too frequently. Dyes will eventually lead to dry and brittle hair. 
-Look for moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. 
-Try deep conditioning your hair once a week.
-If you plan on being in the sun for long periods of time, like a beach trip or hike, try using a leave in moisturizing product.
 
Fine/Thin Hair:
-Never condition the roots of your hair; this will lead to a greasy look.
-Avoid getting layered hair cuts as this will only emphasize the thinness of your hair at the ends.
-Don’t let your hair grow to long as it will appear stringy and thin.
-Thin hair tends to split much more easily than thick hair so make sure you are getting frequent hair cuts to keep the ends looking healthy.
 
Thick Hair:
-People with thick hair often complain of itchy dry scalps. This is usually caused by shampoo residue not being washed completely off your head. Make sure you are rinsing your scalp very thoroughly to avoid this.
-Layered cuts will hide some of the bulk of your hair.
-When coloring your hair opt for semi-permanent dyes, as permanent ones often thicken hair, making thick hair less manageable and bigger.
 
Curly Hair:
- Curly hair tends to dry out quickly and because of the uneven surfaces, often looks dull rather than shiny and healthy. Make sure you are using moisturizing shampoo to help combat this.
-Use a wide-toothed comb on wet hair after showering to avoid the frizz that often follows dry brushing.
-Rather than using a blow drying which will separate your curls making it frizzy, pat your hair dry with a thick absorbing towel or let it air dry.
Straight Hair:
-Straight hair hangs right against the scalp often making it oily. Try using deep cleaning conditioners to avoid the greasy appearance.
-Using a clarifying gel treatment once a week will keep your hair looking full rather than sparse or thin.
-Make sure you aren’t over conditioning your hair. 
 
Ideal amounts of Shampoo and Conditioner:
Most people are making the mistake of using too much shampoo and/or conditioner. Ideally with shampoo, people with shoulder-length hair are recommended to use a small amount, about the size of a 1RMB coin. However you will need to adjust slightly if your hair is longer or shorter. With conditioner use a slightly smaller amount than you do with shampoo and leave it in for 3-5 minutes before rinsing it gently.

每日梳理:
 
合成毛刷:
这种刷子对那些头发浓密的人来说很好。合成刷毛将有助于把头发理顺。头发较薄的女孩可能会发现这种刷子会让她们的头发干燥而暗淡.。
 
天然毛刷:
和前者相反,这种刷子更适合头发更薄更直的女孩子,天然毛刷的毛通常来自野猪的鬃毛,可以让你头发上的天然油脂分布更加均匀,让你的头发看上去饱满而有光泽。
 
混合毛刷:
这种毛刷结合了前两者的共同优点。
 
桨状梳子:
这种数字和合成毛刷很像,但是更加宽大,如果你的头发很厚造型很大,你会发现你的头发会把毛刷上的毛带下来。在这种情况下桨状梳子就很适合你。
 
排刷:
这种中间有孔的梳子很适合需要吹干的薄头发。用普通梳子吹头发会消耗大量时间,而排刷就是专门为了尽快吹干头发而准备的。
 
圆梳:
天然卷的女孩很适合用这种梳子。这种梳子可以在不去美发沙龙的情况下做出柔顺的卷发。
 
梳理刷:
这种小刷子可以通过给头发打结来制造蓬松感。梳理刷在任何类型的头发上都能够很好地发挥作用,当然,如果用在天然蓬松的头发上就更好了。
 
鼠尾梳:
这种有尖端的梳子能够很好地把头发自然分散开。造型师一般用这种梳子来确保各部分头发之间的均衡和笔直。
 
宽齿梳:
很多有着又厚又卷的头发的女孩子会发现头发在干了之后很难梳,或者是头发变成了乱糟糟的一团。对于这样的女孩子而言宽齿梳就是最好的选择。对湿头发用梳子可能会损伤发质,但是宽齿梳在梳头的时候非常柔和,可以避免之后头发变得乱糟糟。
 
和皮肤类似,女孩子们经常发现她们的头发看上去干干的,毛糙油腻黯淡无光,看上去一点也不干净,甚至说发质好坏要碰运气。你最需要做的就是了解你的头发。特别要注意在油腻的时候你是如何在早上清洁头发的,而你用了多少清洁产品。
 
Cato Van Ee ©Cuneyt Akeroglu
 
以下是给不同的发质提出的建议:
 
油性发质:
确保你用的洗发水和护理剂和你的头发厚度相匹配。如果你头发比较薄却用了为厚头发准备的定型剂那么你的头发肯定会变油。
试着隔天洗头,而不是天天洗头。和大家通常意识到的相反,头皮分泌油脂是由外界信号影响的,频繁使用粗糙的洗发水会让你的头发看上去越来越脏也越来越油。
用你的指缝涂抹洗发水,而不是用指尖。
 
干性发质:
不要经常染发。染料会让头发变干。
使用有保湿作用的洗发水和护理剂。
试试看每周做一个深度护理。
如果你打算去海滩旅游或者远足这样长时间晒太阳的活动,用一些能够保湿的产品。
 
普通厚度或者较薄的头发:
不要做发根的护理,这样会让头发看上去很油
不要剪分层的发型,这样只会让你的头发看上去更薄。
别把头发留太长,这样显薄。
薄头发比厚头发更容易分叉,所以经常剪头发可以让你的头发看上去更健康。
 
厚头发:
头发厚的人们经常抱怨头皮干燥发痒。这主要由洗发水残留导致。确保你彻底清洗了头皮防止之后的残留问题。
有层次感的造型可以让你的发型看上去不那么大。
染发时使用半永久染料,永久染料会让你的头发看上去更厚更大也更难打理。
 
卷发:
卷发因为有不平整的表面所以干得很快,看上去会比较暗淡、不健康。可以使用有保湿作用的洗发水来防止这种情况的发生。
洗完头之后用宽齿梳,避免头发干的时候梳头造成乱糟糟的情况。
与其用吹风机把头发吹乱不如用干毛巾擦拭头发之后自然风干。
 
直发:
把直发披近头皮通常会让头发变油,所以可以用一些深度清洁的产品。
用一些凝胶护理可以让头发看上去更饱满。
不要过度护理。
 
理想的洗发水和护发素使用量:
大多数人会错误地使用过量的洗发水和护发素。对于齐肩长发的人而言,理想的洗发水量大概和一枚一元硬币差不多。但是你需要根据具体长短来调整用量。护发素的量较洗发水少一些,先将其涂抹在头发上保持三到五分钟之后温和地将其洗去。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Hairstyles Decade by Decade

Popular hairstyles have evolved greatly in the last hundred years. In this chapter we will take a look at the iconic hairstyles of each decade and discuss how they can be adapted and worn today.
 
1910s: If you have ever seen an episode of the popular drama Downton Abbey then you are most likely familiar with the most popular hairstyles of the 1910s. This style is usually defined by elegant but conservative curls, usually pinned up to the side and often decked out with hair combs or ribbons to add to the glamorous look. Today this look can easily be utilized at a more elegant event, giving you an aura of classic, timeless beauty.
 
1920s: In the roaring 20s, the iconic hairstyle that swept through nations was the bob. Until then women prized their long hair, cutting it rarely and usually wearing it at least partly down to show its length. With the burgeoning of the age of Hollywood glamour, many young women began to shuck the long-tresses to opt for the slick bob. Cut to chin length, this style was usually left free to bounce around and it still a popular cut and style today. 
 
1930s: The 1930s continued in favor of the bob length hair, though it did evolved into a slicker more elegant cousin of the 20s style. As Hollywood grew in popularity people began to imitate those looks seen on stars such as Greta Garbo and Bette Davis. Short, light and wavy looks took over. This is one of the few iconic hairstyles that is rarely seen in the fashion world today. To a modern audience it is seen as dated or matronly.
 
1940s: As the recognition and appreciation of Hollywood glamour reached its peak, new hair icons emerged, including Elizabeth Taylor and Ingrid Bergman, and with them came a slightly longer, more coiffed style. Victory rolls, a style where hair is curled around a rod and then pinned into place so that it holds a voluminous, sweeping curling even after the rod is removed, became the height of fashion. Today many hairstyles from the old Hollywood days are utilized both on the red carpet and on runways worldwide.  The style still symbolized the old, timeless glamour of the Hollywood golden ages. 
 
1950s: During the 1950s, short fringed bangs made their first appearances as a popular style. The pin curls, a smaller simpler version of the victory roll, began gaining popularity and hair was usually pinned off the face and out of the way, in this age of modern practicality. This is another era that didn’t last long, and exists today looking more matronly and outdated.
 
1960s: During the 60s women began to burst from the bonds of simple, understated hairstyles. High fashion began to emerge with the rise of Twiggy, considered by most of the world to be the first true supermodel. Suddenly the bigger the hair the more fashionable it was. The bouffant look became the height of fashion among common woman.
 
1970s: The new expressive age of exploration in hairstyles led to the popular feathered look of the 70s. More intricate haircuts emerged and more and more women began relying on the cut of their hair and wearing it down rather than styling it every day, as had been the practice. Layering emerged in hair creating natural volume and coloring began to rise in popularity, especially highlights and lowlights, which color parts of hair to make it appear thicker and varied. Many of the styles that appeared in the 70s are still worn all over the world today.
 
1980s: Curls, curls and more curls defined the iconic 80s look. With the discovery of the perm, a salon style that created small tight curls that lasted a month or two, hair grew in size.  With icons like Diana Ross leading the parade, hair grew bigger and bigger throughout this decade. Today the perm is still a popular look, and is growing more and more fashionable in Asian countries, where hair is naturally straight. 
 
1990s: With high fashion truly blossoming from the everyday looks, the 1990s was defined not by a specific style but by the value of individuality as never before. Hair accessories such as clips and colored scrunchies grew in popularity and while hair did deflate a bit from the 80s fads, color continued to be a game changer.

流行的发型在过去的一百年中变化多样。在这一章我们将带大家走近每个年代标志性的发型,并且讨论它们是如何发展并适应当下时代的。
 
1910s:只要你看过Downton Abbey中的哪怕一个章节,你也会对上世纪初流行的发型非常熟悉。这种发型主要体现在它保守而不失优雅的蜷曲,女性通常会将头发梳到一边或是系上缎带以锦上添花。现在,这样的造型大多会出现在一些高雅的场合,让人体会到一种经典的、超越时空的美。
 
1920s:在上个世纪咆哮的二十年代,波波头是席卷了各个国家的流行风潮。之前女性还是非常爱惜她们的长发,有时候会从发髻中放一些头发出来以显示它们的长度。随着好莱坞风潮的兴起,爱美的女性将她们的目标转向了波波头。这一发型的长度只到脸颊,可以很自由地弹来弹去,直至今日依旧是一种常见的发型。
 
1930s:波波头的流行一直延续到了三十年代,但是它发展成了一种更加优雅的造型。随着好莱坞的崛起,人们开始青睐于Greta Garbo和 Bette Davis这些明星的造型。短而轻盈的卷发似乎占据了主流。这是一种在现今时尚界很少见的发型。对于现在人来说,这未免有些过时了。
 
1940s:当好莱坞的影响力到达巅峰的时候,新发型的风向标也随之而来,包括Elizabeth Taylor 和Ingrid Bergman那种稍长也更整齐的发型。使用卷发棒为头发定型的维多利亚式卷发成为了新潮流。有很多旧时好莱坞流行的发型至今仍可以在明星走红毯或是赶通告的时候看到。这样的造型也标志着好莱坞永不过时的黄金时代。
 
1950s:上个世纪五十年代短刘海第一次做为流行发型出现。一种更简单的维多利亚式卷发,斜卷发,开始流行起来。现在的造型中,这种发型将头发从面前梳到一边。这是另一个没有延续下去的时代,在现在看来显得有些老气。
 
1960s:六十年代的女性突破了保守的传统发型。随着世界公认的首位超模Twiggy的走红,新的流行发型也应运而生。似乎造型越大就越时尚。浮夸的造型成了女性追求的时尚。
 
1970s:七十年代是一个注重自我表达的年代,羽毛般的发型也逐渐流行起来。更复杂的发型出现,越来越多的女性开始对自己的头发进行切割而非像过去一样定型。头发自然卷,并分层着色开始盛行,特别是其中的明暗交替,着色部分的头发使发型显得厚实多彩。许多出现在七十年代的款式至今仍遍布世界各地.。
 
1980s:铺天盖地的卷发定义了标志性的八十年代外观。随着烫发的出现,能够维持一两个月的紧密卷发也就是所谓的沙龙风格,开始流行。Diana Ross引领了这股风潮。而在这十年里,头发变得越来越大。今天烫发仍然流行,并且在大多数人都是天然直发的亚洲国家越发流行。
 
1990s:二十世纪九十年代,随着高度的时尚从日常生活中真正绽放出来,这个年代的定义不是一种特定的风格,而是一种前所未有的个性价值。发夹发箍这样用在头发上的配件越发普及,发型也较八十年代更加时尚,而颜色仍然起着主导作用。

The topic of hairstyles is very broad. It will differ with everyone. What hairstyles will work with different length hair? Which hairstyles will work better in curly hair or straight hair? Which hairstyles will frame which face shape better? (For more on the last see the chapter on Face Shapes)
 
In this section we will go over some of the most common hairstyles, and how to glam them up for any occasion.
 
Ponytail
The ponytail is probably the most common and easiest ‘hairstyle to accomplish’. The pony tail simply involves pulling all of your hair back and tying it in a tail at the back of your head.
Some tips for a better ponytail:
Pony with Volume- If you have thin hair, place two bobby pins underneath the base of your ponytail pointing up. This will lift the hair, creating volume, rather than letting your hair drop straight down.
Pony with Twist-If you want to make your pony tail look more elegant, create a hole in your hair near the base of your head before the elastic. Pull the ends of your tail through the hole creating a twist and adding a bit of class to this classic.
Classic Classy Pony-If you hate the site of a colored elastic holding your hair up, take a small lock of hair from your pony. Wrap the lock, not too tightly, around the elastic, covering it completely. Secure the lock with a bobby pin pushed through the elastic.
Remember, a ponytail is a very versatile hairstyle!  It can be placed high or low depending on the look you are going for.  Play around with your own hair a bit。 What kind of ponytail suits you best?
 
Jaden Smith, from ins @c.syresmith
 
Bun
Buns, similar to pony, the bun involves pulling all your hair back into a single elastic. However instead of letting your hair fall from there, the bun involves wrapping or bunching your hair up close to your haid.
Messy Bun-This style works best for ladies with curly or wavy hair. It is also a great style for the day after you showered, because it tends to hold better if your hair is a bit dirty.  If you have shorter hair all you need to do is pretend to make a ponytail, but instead of pulling your hair all the way through, keep the ends tucked into the elastic as you wrap it. For those with longer hair, twist all your hair together in a long rope above your head. Loosely wrap the rope around itself close to your scalp and secure it with either pins or a hair elastic.  Don’t worry about having some fly-away pieces. This is part of the messy bun’s allure. 
Ballet Bun-For a sleeker more composed look, the ballet bun may be the ideal look for you.  To do this, brush all your hair back into a slick, high, pony tail and secure it tightly with a hair elastic. Twist all hair from elastic to end and begin to tightly wrap it around itself.  Every couple of centimeters, slide a bobby pin through the twist, with the end going under the elastic, holding it in place and making it so the pins do not show. Tuck the end securely underneath itself and pin.
 
Braids
Another very common hairstyle is the braid, or multiple braids.  There are two major types of braids, the French braid, which starts with small pieces of hair and moves along your head, gathering hair as it goes, and the ‘pigtail’ style braid which begins with all of the hair involved and is braided out, away from your scalp. There are many interesting braid additions to add to a hairdo to make it really pop such as:
Ponytail with Braid- Sweep most of your hair into a mid-height ponytail excluding a spot in the bangs area. With this piece you will make a loose French braid, continue when all the hair has been added and sweep it around the side of your head. Loosely wrap the end of the braid around your hair elastic and secure it with a pin.\
Braided Bun-This style is very similar to the ballet bun describe earlier. Instead of twisting the hair up from the pony tail, braid it away from your head until the end.  Then wrap the hair the same way you would with the ballet bun and secure it with pins. This creates a knotted looking ballet bun that adds elegance to any style. 
Milkmaid Braids-This hairdo can be adapted to nearly any hair type.  However it is much easier if you have longer hair.  To start make two braids, either French or ‘pigtail’ style.  If you chose French, make sure they are not too tight to your head, this hairstyle should look loose and messy when finished.  With French braids, take the ends of your braids and wrap them down and around your head, crossing them and pinning them to the top of your head, near your crown.  With pigtail braids, pull them from the sides up behind your ears and pin them at your crown. Pull out small pieces of hair to hang around your face and enjoy this simple, earthy up do.

发型的话题很广泛。每个人看法都不同。不同长度的头发适合什么样的发型?这发型是卷发好看还是直发更好?什么样的发型将人脸打造的更美?(更多的内容在下面章节可以看到)
在这一节中我们将介绍一些最常见的发型,以及如何在任何不同场合来打扮自己发型。
 
马尾辫
马尾辫可能是最常见和最简单的发型。马尾辫简单地把你的头发扎起来,绑在你的头后面。
一个更好的马尾辫的一些提示:
小马厚度,如果你有稀疏的头发,使用两个发夹把碎发弄起,使你的马尾辫朝上。这将使头发有蓬松感,而不是让你的头发直接垂直下来。
如果你想让你的小马尾看起来更优雅,在你的扎好的头发上扎出一个小头发洞。通过这个曲松的洞,并添加一点装饰到这个经典的发型中。
经典优雅的马尾辫,如果你讨厌一个彩色橡皮筋来扎头发,从你的马尾辫中取一小缕头发。扎紧,不太紧,周围有些弹性,完全覆盖。用发夹穿过橡皮筋固定住。
记住,马尾辫,是一个非常多才多艺的发型!它可以扎高或着扎低,这取决于你想要的。摆弄自己的头发。什么样的马尾辫最适合你?
 
Willow Smith, from ins @willowsmith
 
丸子头
丸子头,类似马尾辫,丸子头涉及把你的头发用橡皮筋扎起来。但是不要让你的头发落在那里,是包住或聚束头发让头发贴紧头。
凌乱的发髻,这种风格最适合女士卷发或卷发的女性。你沐浴后这将是一个很不错的发型,因为它往往拥有更好的如果你的头发有点脏的话。如果你有短的头发你就假装做一个马尾辫,但不是拉直你的头发,使两端卷起用橡皮筋扎好。对于那些有较长的头发,你的头发用一根长皮筋缠绕在你的头上。松散地缠绕这,靠近你的头皮,并用一个发卡或一个头发发饰扎好。不要担心有一些散碎的头发。这是凌乱的头发诱惑的一部分。
芭蕾发髻 如果想更时尚,芭蕾包可能是你理想中的选择。要做到这一点,把你的头发刷成一个光滑的,高,小马尾巴,并确保它紧紧地与头发贴紧。缠扎起所有的头发,从弹性到结束,并开始紧紧缠绕扎好。每隔几厘米,滑动发夹缠绕,最终用橡皮扎好,保持它在的地方,用发卡让它不显示出来。把底端牢牢地固定在自己头发后。
 
花辫
另一个常见的发型是辫子,花辫。有两种主要类型的法国辫子,辫子,从小块的头发,沿着你的头发,收集它,从“小辫子”式的辫子开始把所有的头发,编织出来的,远离你的头皮。有很多有趣的编织添加来让它成为流行发型等:
随着编织把大部分的头发梳成一个马尾辫,不包括在刘海区。有了这你将弄成一个松散的法国辫子,继续把所有的头发添加和扎在你的头部的一侧。松散的缠绕在你的头发周围,用一个固定的发卡结束。
编织包,这种风格很相似芭蕾包子。不同于编曲的马尾辫,编头发让它远离你的头皮,直到结束。然后用同样的方式包裹头发,并用发饰固定住。这将弄成一个打结式,芭蕾舞发髻,增添优雅的风格。
挤奶女工辫子这种发型可以适应几乎任何类型的头发。然而,如果你有较长的头发它是更容易。开始扎两个辫子,法式或“辫子”的风格。如果你选择了法式,确保扎的时候不太紧,这个发型应该看起来松散和混乱时完成。法国辫子,把辫子的末端包下来,在你的头上,并将它们穿过你的头冠。扎辫子,把它们放在的耳朵后面然后卡在在你的头顶。拔出小块的头发挂在你的脸上,享受这简单,朴实的发型。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Eyebrows
 
 
Eyebrows, while necessary for facial recognition, may be some of the most often forgotten parts of the face when it comes to dressing up. While it may seem high maintenance to try to tame or fluff your eyebrows, unkempt eyebrows can often ruin an entire look, giving the impression of sloppiness or lack of caring.  
 
Eyebrows have a lifespan of about 4 months. This means that in this time each hair in your eyebrows will fall out and re-grow.
 
What your eyebrows say about you:
Shape:
Curved: You are a people person, are content being a follower and would rather spend your nights out with friend than home alone
Straight: You are a very direct person, which sometimes leads you to sound blunt. However you think very logically and enjoy solving puzzles
Angled: You are a control queen who likes to have everything very tidy and ordered and dislikes nonsense and interruption. 
 
Position:
High: You are very observant and thoughtful. You would rather take the time to think through the pros and cons of a decision rather than jump to any conclusions. You prefer to keep to yourself and are very quiet. 
Low: You are very quick witted and your fast paced decision making often makes you appear rash or impulsive to those around you. You are very extroverted and like to be the center of attention. 
 
Type:
Bushy: You are very mentally active, witty and intellectual. 
Thin: You are very self conscious, often overly critical and always very goal oriented.
Winged(thick in the center but thin towards the ends: You are a planner and enjoy being the leader of any given group.

The Art of Managing your Eyebrows
There are many ways to manage your eyebrows.  We will go over the pros and cons of a few of the most common ones:
Waxing: This method usually involves a trip to the salon (though it can be attempted at home if you choose to risk it). It involves strips of wax being placed over the hairs, pressed down and then quickly yanked away, pulling out the unwanted hairs.
Pros: Easy, long lasting
Cons: Pricey, painful
Threading: Founded in India, this method is much like plucking. However in the case of threading, during which multiple hairs are plucked at once using two pieces of thread, it is usually advised to use a professional. 
Pros: Precise, long lasting, good for sensitive skin
Cons: Limited availability, pain, cost
Tweezing: While not done in salons because of the time it takes, this home solution is convenient, requiring only one small tool. By plucking a single hair at a time you would be shaping your own brows.
Pros: Inexpensive, precise, and painless
Cons: High maintenance, time consuming

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Spots
 
 
Spots are a nightmare that in a perfect world would disappear once you leave puberty. We do not live in a perfect world.
 
Do not pop them. You’ve probably been told that since they first started appearing on your once-perfect skin. There is a reason for this piece of wisdom. Not only does it make the spot stick around longer, it can spread pus that causes other spots and leave scarring. 
 
A good skin care routine should help control outbreaks.
 
The doctor can provide medicine for controlling outbreaks but this method should only be approached if the outbreaks and uncontrollable and/or painful. 
 
If you have a spot, don’t keep touching it to see if it’s gone. It hasn’t and you’re making it worse.

一个好的护肤方法有助于控制痘痘的爆发。医生可以提供药物来控制痘痘爆发,但是这种方法只适用于痘痘暴涨不能控制或痛苦的时候。
 
如果你长痘痘,不要碰它让它自然消退,你碰它将让情况更糟。

Good skin can be the difference between looking sixteen and looking sixty (although let’s face it, it’s best to settle somewhere in the middle). No matter what advertising may tell you, once damaged that damage is usually permanent.
 
Establish a skincare routine. Wash your face with the same soap and cleanser twice a day. For soaps to work their magic they need to be on your skin for at least thirty seconds.

Bottles that promise to help clear acne or give you younger looking skin won’t work if used just once or twice. Their success depends on incorporating them into your daily routine for a few weeks – only then will you see results.

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Applying Makeup
 
 
Before applying makeup
 
Preparation is key to having a clean finished product and keeping skin healthy and bright.
Cleanser-giving you a clean base to work with Toner-removes any residue left by facial cleanser as well as reducing the size of your pores, resulting in less of a chance of pimples as a result of makeup application.Moisturizer-Keeps face from drying out by applied cosmetics.  
 
The amount and style of makeup application will and should vary with the season and, of course, depending on the situation. For example, liquid foundation with leave you with a healthier, younger look and should be utilized in the warmer seasons (also because there is less of a chance of them being sweated off). Powdered foundations leave a more cakey appearance and require a heavier hand, something often necessary in the colder months.  If you aren’t a fan of using full face foundations and still find yourself with blotchy skin, try using a BB cream (which are also ideal for the summer heat as they often include low SPF sunscreen.)
 
Eyes
 
Nude colors are a safe bet, as there are shades that will work for everyone and they accentuate the natural beauty of one’s eyes rather than running the risk of clashing with your eye hue as you do with colored shadows.  
 
If you do choose to use a color, make sure you are clear on which colors will look alright with your skin tone. For Example, Golds or Yellows are generally more fitting to darker complexions while pinks and reds often make these same people appear to have a black eye. KNOW WHICH COLORS WORK FOR YOUR COMPLEXTION.
 
When applying eye makeup, most professionals recommend working in this order: Primer (to keep shadow from clumping in the creases of your eyelid), Shadow, Liner, Mascara
 
Tricks and Tips:
 
-If you are worried about not being able to keep the wings of your eyeliner even and symmetrical, use a spoon to help create the perfect swoop.
 
-To give lashes more volume without using falsies, apply one layer of mascara, brush baby powder on your lashes and then apply another layer of mascara.
 
-If you are worried about your lipstick fading to quickly apply your lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips and brush over the tissue with baby powder. The powder will help to set the lipstick to your lips assuring longer lasting color. 
 
IMPORTANT: Always remember to wash all the makeup off your face before going to sleep at night. Few things are as damaging to your skin then sleeping in that day’s makeup only to reapply the next morning.  Liquid makeup removers as well as facial cleansing wipes are equally effective.
 
 
妆前准备
 
关键的准备工作是有一个清洁的产品,保持皮肤健康有光泽。洁面乳给你一个清洁的基础。
爽肤水去除任何残留的洗面奶,减少毛孔粗大,可以减少由于化妆所引起粉刺。注意面部保湿避免由于使用化妆品而皮肤干燥。不同的化妆品的使用要随季节而变化,当然,这取决于不同情况。
 
例如,粉底液留给你一个更健康,更年轻的容颜,应利用在温暖的季节(也因为它可以较少的流汗),他们是大汗淋漓)。粉性的基底会在你的皮肤上留下厚厚一层脂粉,有必要涂抹的时候需要用些力气有时候适合在寒冷的季节使用。如果你不喜欢涂抹全脸,而且自己的脸上有斑点,尝试使用 BB霜(在炎热的夏天使用也是很理想的,他们通常包括低SPF的防晒霜。)
 
眼部
 
裸色是一个很安全的眼部打底色,因为有阴影,所以适合很多人使用,而且他们强调人的眼部的自然美,而不是运用彩妆来增加眼部眼影混乱风险。
 
如果你选择使用一种颜色,你需要清楚这样的颜色可以衬住你的肤色让你的肤色会看起来很好。例如,金色或黄色通常更适合深肤色,粉红色和红色常使这些人看起来像有一个黑色的眼睛。要清楚的知道哪些颜色适合你的肤色。
 
眼妆时,大多数专业人士推荐在这个顺序工作:底漆(保持阴影聚集在你的眼皮处),阴影,眼线,睫毛膏

技巧诀窍
 
如果你担心不能够把你的眼线均匀对称,用勺子来帮助创造完美的俯冲。
 
让睫毛不使用假睫毛就可以更卷,涂上一层睫毛膏,睫毛刷,涂婴儿粉然后涂一层睫毛膏。
 
如果你担心你的口红褪色,在你的嘴唇上涂一层薄纸,用婴儿粉刷过薄纸。该粉末将有助于唇膏保存,让你的嘴唇保证持久的颜色。
 
重要电脑:记得要在晚上睡觉前卸掉你脸上的妆。如果没有完全卸妆第二天又重新上妆的话有些会损害你的皮肤。卸妆液及洁面湿巾同样有效。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Glasses
 
 
When picking out glasses there are many important factors to figure in, perhaps most importantly the shape of your face and the way the frames affect it.
 
Oval face-characterized by a narrow chin and forehead and slim, symmetrical shape. Because this face shape is relatively thin, it is recommended you find glasses with a thicker rim that extends wider than your face itself to maintain the balance. 
 
Round face-characterized by their softer, more circular face with a nearly equal length and width longer, narrower frames are recommended to help slim the face and rectangular shaped lenses will create the illusion of angles. 
 
Heart-shaped face-characterized by a broader forehead, and a narrow jaw line and chin frames that are wider at the bottom will help to balance this shaped face. Also recommended are lighter colors and materials. Another option would be rimless glasses though be careful because these tend to appear dated on many people. 
 
Square face-characterized by the well-defined angles in the forehead, jaw and chin. It is recommended that those with squared faces should avoid rectangular glasses as these will accentuate the angles of the face. Look for thicker, curved rims. 
 
7 Quick Makeup Tips for Girls with Glasses:
-Dab a bit of concealer under your eye to avoid the shadow of your frames making them look sunken.
-Blot away excess foundation to avoid it ending up smudged all over the rims of your glasses
- Use a tinted moisturizer to help conceal those pesky red marks often left where your glasses rest on your nose. 
-Make sure to keep your eyebrows looking clean. Since glasses draw peoples gazes to the eye area, unkempt eyebrows appear much more apparent. 
-Keep eye makeup simple. The frames of your glasses are already dominating your face and elaborate or colorful eye makeup will only clash. 
-When wearing glasses always use an eyelash curler to avoid those mascara smears that often appear on the lenses from the tips of your eyelashes. 
-If you are struggling with keeping your eye shadow toned-down and neutral, try shifting focus to other areas of your face. Try pairing bold frames with a bold lip to balance it out. 
 
 
有许多重要的因素影响眼镜的选择,也许最重要的是你脸型和框架的影响。
 
鹅蛋脸的特点是下巴尖额头窄,脸部对称。因为这个脸型比较薄,所以建议你找一个比你的脸更厚的眼镜,它比你的脸更宽,以保持平衡。
 
圆脸的特点是更柔和,因为圆,面部长宽几乎相等。建议戴更长更窄的眼镜,以修饰脸型,产生角度错觉。
 
心形脸有更宽的额头,和狭窄的下颌线和下巴,底部较宽的眼镜将有助于修饰这种脸型。建议轻巧的颜色和材料。另一种选择是无框眼镜但要小心,因为这些往往容易撞同款。
 
方脸的特点是额头、下巴棱角分明。应避免矩形眼镜,这些会加重脸部的棱角。适合较厚,有弧度的框架。
 
戴眼镜女孩的7个快速化妆技巧:
- 在眼睛周围涂一点遮瑕膏,以避免你的框架使它们看起来沉没的影子。
- 擦去多余的底妆,避免妆花了弄脏眼镜的边缘。
- 使用有色润肤霜帮助掩盖鼻子周围那些讨厌的瑕疵。
- 确保你的眉毛看起来干净。因为眼镜会使人的注意力集中在眼睛区,杂乱的眉毛显得更加明显。
- 画简单的眼妆。镜框已是面部装饰的主要部分,精细或色彩斑斓的眼妆只会喧宾夺主。
- 戴眼镜的时候,用睫毛夹来避免睫毛膏弄脏镜片。
- 如果眼影低调且中性,可以把重点放在其他五官上。试着用大胆的唇色来平衡。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Aging Gracefully
 
 
Remember, no two girls are the same size, so don’t be ashamed or surprised if something that looks amazing on your busty best friend, falls flat on you. The first step is to know your body type. The second step is to embrace it and know what looks good on you. 
 
Curvy Girls: Full bust, thin waist, full hips
Pros: You were graced with the classic hourglass figure many girls would kill for. 
Cons: The high fashion world never seems to cater to your curves and while that skirt looked killer on the skinny vogue model you know you would never be able to fit your hips into it. 
Helpful Hints: Embrace your curves! You will always be able to fill out looser tops without looking like you are wearing a tent and accentuating that waist with a belt and a pencil skirt will make for a ready-made, showstopper of a look any day. 
 
 
Hippy Girls: Small bust, thin waist, full hips
Pros: Your upper body is stunning, with long thin arms and an itty-bitty waist, while still having the curvy hip area coveted by many.
Cons: The problem that often arises for you is in the thigh area. You are probably used to using the easy way out and sticking to loose clothes to mask them.
Helpful Hints: Avoid belts or skinny pants, both of which will accentuate the thickness of your legs. Instead focus on bringing eyes to the good with statement necklaces or patterned top.
 
Athletic Girls: Broad shoulders, no distinguishable waist, wide hips
Pros: Congratulations!  You can look athletic without even trying! And while many girls complain that this body type isn’t inherently feminine it does come with the added bonus of not attracting cellulite as much as most other body types. 
Cons: Because your waist is difficult to distinguish you have difficulty wearing dresses or any loose-fitting clothing without appearing wide and boxy.
Helpful Hints: The clothes that will look best on you are those that create the illusion of the curves that you might not have naturally. Skirts with flared hemlines and wrap dresses are a must have in your wardrobe and aim for owning at least one pair of good tailored pants! 
 
 
Stick Thin Girls: Small Bust, Small waist, Small Hips
Pros: The high fashion world is at your fingertips! 
Cons: You lack curves and therefore can never wear oversized clothes so as to not look like you are swimming in your outfit. 
Helpful Hints: Your aversion to larger sizes may lead you too far in the opposite direction. Avoid drawing attention to your lack of curves with very tight skirts and pants or any low-cut top.   
 
 
记住,没有两个女孩的身材尺寸是一样的,所以如果最好的朋友胸很大而你是平胸,不要感到羞耻或惊讶。第一步是要知道你的身材类型,第二步是接受它,知道适合自己的造型
 
曲线女孩:有丰满的胸和臀、纤细的腰
优点:很多女孩羡慕的典型的沙漏型身材。
缺点:这种曲线不适合高级时尚,裙子穿在瘦瘦的时装模特身上很好看,而你知道臀围永远不适合。
 
 
嬉皮士女孩:小胸围,纤细的腰部、臀部丰满
优点:你的上半身很美,细长的手臂和纤细的腰,同时还具有丰满的臀部。
缺点:问题经常出现在大腿。使用简单的方法,穿宽松的衣服来掩盖他们。
友情提示:避免皮带或紧身裤,都将加重你的腿的厚度。相反,专注于将视觉重点放在颈部或上面。
 
运动女孩:宽肩,腰线不明显,宽臀
优点:恭喜你!你可以不用尝试就看起来充满活力!虽然很多女孩子抱怨这身型并不天生女性化,但不看胖也算是额外的福利。
缺点:因为腰线不明显,穿宽松的衣服不显得宽而四四方方的。
提示:最好的衣服可以创造你有自然曲线的错觉。喇叭裙和包臀礼服裙是你的衣柜必备,拥有至少一条量身定做的裤子!
 
 
苗条女孩:平胸、细腰、小屁股
优点:高级就在你的指尖!
缺点:你缺乏曲线,因此不能穿大号的衣服,不然松松垮垮。
有用的提示:不要穿大号的衣服。避免聚焦缺点的衣服,过紧的裙子和裤子或任何低胸。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Aging Gracefully
 
 
Aging and embracing your age as it comes rather than dreading each birthday as it flies by, is one of the most difficult journeys a woman will go through in her lifetime. Dealing with a changing body, and changing circumstances, especially in those who feel as if they have spent years getting to a place where they truly like how they look, will be torturous. But what can you do? The answer is nothing. There is no magical elixir to help the aging process? You do not NEED to get your face pumped full of Botox to re-dye the roots of your hair every month so the grey doesn’t show. Aging absolutely beautiful!And you should be able to embrace it, relax into it, and love it rather than resent it. 
 
“And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” - Audrey Hepburn
 
 
The Art of Aging Gracefully
 
There are many studies that go into how to look younger.  I believe however that it is so much more important to FEEL younger.  So here are a few tips on how to focus on that:
 
- BE HAPPY!  
Pessimism and frowning not only give you wrinkles (true fact!) but also cause the aging process to be much harder. If you are pessimistic about the changes you are going through they will be difficult! If you look on the bright side it will be much easier to overcome obstacles.
 
- ACCEPT CHANGES! 
Change is simply a part of life. Try to fight it and you will lose.  Wouldn’t it be so much easier to just go with the flow and learn to adapt to whatever changes are thrown your way? The answer is yes, yes it would. 
 
 
- REJECT STEREOTYPES! 
Just because you are over 50 does not mean you need to throw your hands up, dye your hair grey and buy a bunch of cats!  You are still you!  Dye your hair because you LOVE the color or buy the cats because you LOVE their attitudes but do not let yourself be told that there is a way you are supposed to be acting, or appearing.  You are still you! That is more important than anything else. 
 
- FIND MEANINGFUL ACTIVITIES! 
As you grow older, especially approaching the age of retirement, it will be easy to lose yourself to laziness. However laziness only breads more laziness and will end up being much worse for your health and mentality than finding something that interests you or picking up a new hobby! 
 
- BE CONFIDENT! 
Everyone will age. That is a fact that nobody can deny.  So what is the use of feeling ashamed of a wrinkle or grey hair? Isn’t it more meaningful if you go out and flaunt your age, like a badge of your wisdom? Yes…yes it is.
 
“You don't stop laughing when you grow old; you grow old when you stop laughing.” - George Bernard Shaw
 
 
坦然面对你的年龄和衰老,而不是因为时间飞逝害怕每年的生日,这是女人一生中最困难的事情之一。与不断变化的身体和不断变化的情况打交道,特别是那些花费数年来让自己变得年轻的人,将是痛苦的。你可以做什么吗?答案是没有。有没有灵丹妙药阻止衰老?你不需要让你的脸注满肉毒杆菌,每个月重新将白发染黑。变老也可以漂亮!而且你应该能够放轻松,接受它,爱它,而不是反感。
 
 “一个女人的美丽,随着岁月的流逝只会增加!” ― 奥黛丽·赫本
 
 
优雅老去的艺术
 
有许多研究探讨如何看起来更年轻。然而,我相信,“觉得”年轻重要的多。所以这里有一些关于这一点的技巧:
 
- 变快乐!
悲观和皱着眉头,不仅给你的皱纹(真的!)也会加速衰老。如果你对你所经历的改变感到悲观,他们会很难!如果你看看光明的一面,它会更容易克服障碍。
 
- 接受变化!
变化只是生活的一部分。尝试与它抗争你只会输。岂不是太容易就顺其自然,学会适应任何改变你的方式吗?答案是肯定的,是的。
 
 
- 拒绝刻板印象!
五十几岁并不意味着需要帮助、头发染灰色和买一堆猫!你还是你!染发,因为你喜欢那个颜色。买猫,因为他们粘人。但不要让自己被告知有一种方法你应该表演,或出现。你还是你!这是比任何事情都更重要。
 
- 找到有意义的活动!
随着你年龄的增长,特别是临近退休的年龄,很容易迷失自己,变懒惰。然而懒惰只回更懒惰,最终你的健康和心态会更糟。找到你感兴趣的东西或培养一个新的嗜好!
 
- 自信!
每个人都会变老。没有人能否认这是一个事实。因为皱纹或灰色的头发感到羞愧有什么意义吗?如果你出去炫耀你的年龄,它就像智慧的象征,是不是更有意义?是的…是的。
 
“因为年老而停止玩乐,我们是因为停止玩乐而变老。” — 萧伯纳
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Tattoos and Piercings
 
 
Tattoos and piercings divide opinion to put it mildly. Some people will get dozens in their life, while others consider permanent body modification for aesthetic reasons tantamount to self-harm.
 
Moderation is probably a good idea. While ear piercings are almost universally socially acceptable, more unusual piercings can raise eyebrows, particularly in the workplace. Get your piercings at a recognized salon with good hygiene standards. If in doubt, don’t use it. Make sure you care for your new piercings properly. Don’t pick them and keep them clean to prevent infection.

Most salons will suggest keeping your piercings in for several weeks to prevent them closing up. In reality, you should keep them in for closer to a year as it takes a long time for the skin to heal. It is recommended that tattoos are placed in areas where they can be fully covered if necessary.
 
Work with the tattoo artist to come up with the perfect design for you. Remember this is forever, you can say if you don’t like it or want something changed.
 
 
Once you’ve decided how you want it to look, make ten copies of the design and put it up all over the house. After looking at it every day for six months and not getting sick of it, you are ready to have it put on your skin. Start off with a small tattoo. Don’t get sleeves your first time. Follow instructions for the aftercare of your first tattoo. 
 
 
婉转的讨论纹身和穿孔。有些人会有几十个,而其他人认为因为审美而产生的永久身体修改等于自我伤害。
 
适度是个好主意。耳洞几乎为社会普遍接受,更不寻常的穿孔可以引起注意,特别是在工作场所。在一个公认的沙龙与良好的卫生标准得到你的刺青。如果有疑问,不要使用它。确保你照顾你的新的穿孔正确。不要挠他们,并保持清洁,防止感染。
 
多数美容院建议保持你的穿孔数周,以防止他们倒闭了。在现实中,你应该让他们在接近一年,因为它需要很长的时间为皮肤愈合。建议纹身纹在可以完全覆盖的地方,如果必要的话。
 
 
与纹身艺术家交流,让他来为你设计完美图案。记住这是永远的,如果你不喜欢它或想要改变什么你要提出来。
 
一旦你决定了想要怎么样的花纹,设计十个副本。本个月来每天看它都不觉得厌烦,你可以准备纹这个图案了。以小纹身开始。不要第一次就纹花臂。遵循建议纹你的第一个纹身。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Individual Style
 
 
What you chose to drape your body in is testament to you as a person. It reflects your style and personality. Following trends at best hides that, at worst makes you look bad because it doesn’t suit you. Therefore creating an individual style should be based upon two things: who you are and what suits you.
 
 
Who you are is the easy part. What do you want to wear? What sort of style do you like? Are you trendy? Professional? Modest? Feminine? Look at people’s whose fashion sense you admire. What do you like about it? What can you incorporate from it into your own looks? Don’t be afraid to experiment.
 
 
If the first part of style is creative, the second is the technical side. What features are you complimented on the most? Highlight them and let your flaws fade into the background. What colours look good on you? You may love red dresses but if they clash with your hair you’re never going to be the best expression of yourself. Learn your best and worst bits and how to bring out the best in your appearance.
 
 
Have a signature item. Constantly buying new clothes will not only break the bank but it wasteful. It’s better to buy a few high-quality items you adore than have one hundred so-so pieces. A signature item people can identify with you can become your trademark.
 
 
选择用你的身体证明你的为人,它反映了你的风格和个性。最好的是隐藏趋势,在最坏的情况下,使你看起来不好,因为它不适合你。因此,创建个性风格应该是基于两件事:你是谁、什么适合你。
 
 
你是谁是比较容易的部分。你想穿什么?你喜欢什么样的风格?你时尚吗?专业吗?适度的?女性吗?看看你崇尚的时尚感。你喜欢什么呢?你能把它融入自己的外表吗?不要害怕试验。
 
 
如果第一部分的风格创意,第二个是技术方面。你称赞最特性是什么?强调他们,隐藏缺陷。什么颜色好看?你可能喜欢红色礼服,但如果他们与你的头发不相配,你永远不能展示最好的自己。了解你最好和最差,学习如何展现最好的外表。
 
 
有标志性印记。经常买新衣服不仅浪费钱而且浪费资源。最好买一些高质量的东西,比一百块一般般的划算。标志性印记可以让人们认同你,可以成为你的商标。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Fashion Dos and Don'ts
 
 
Do
 
1. Try clothes before you buy. Sizes change according to stores and fits so don’t be afraid of trying a size bigger or smaller to fit that perfect fit.
 
2. Keep your clothes free of rips and holes.
 
3. Embrace hats. Not only are they good for bad hair days, but can be totally cute too. NOTE: Nice hats do not have ears on them.
 
4. Be bold. Leave the black sweater at home and experiment with bold primary colours and more unusual shades. 
 
5. Invest in accessories. Forking out for a few high-quality pieces that you know compliment your looks can make the difference between a good and bad outfit.
 
6. Layer. Instead of going for the extra thick jumpers, use several layers to keep warm. Learn which colours go together to create cool looks.
 
7. Dress for your age. This works both ways. A twenty year old should not dress like a forty year old… and vice versa. 
 
8. Remember that casual is not a synonym for sloppy. Casual means stylish and chic but not too dressy.
 
9. Make sure your accessories suit the style you are aiming for.
 
10. Bulk buy. This might sound like an odd one but if you absolutely love your ballerina flats they’re not going to last forever. So why not buy a couple of extra pairs before they go out of stock?
 
 
Don’t
 
1. Wear tights as pants. Even leggings and jeggings are really pushing it and should only be worn as pants by the hopelessly lazy. 
 
2. Velour tracksuits. Here’s a handy hint: if you could work out wearing it, you shouldn’t be wearing it anywhere except the gym.
 
3. Go over the top with shoulder padding… Unless you are playing American football. 
 
4. Short shorts or crop top. Not short shorts and crop top.
 
5. Let your underwear show. If bra straps are creeping about your shoulders, you need a strapless bra. Wearing tight underwear under leggings or tights can also make your bum look weird.
 
6. No baseball caps.
 
7. No tutus. 
 
8. Overdo it on the logos. You are not a walking advert. Besides people will assume it’s fake.
 
9. Platform sneakers. Sneakers are for running.
 
10. See through trousers. Not okay. 
 
 
可以
 
1. 买衣服前先试试。根据店家和体型更换尺寸,不要怕试穿尺寸大或小,完美的适合你就好了。
 
2. 保持你的衣服没有撕裂和洞洞。
 
3. 接受帽子。它们不仅有利于糟糕的发型,而且十分可爱可爱。注意:漂亮的帽子没有耳朵。
 
4. 要大胆。把黑色的毛衣丢在家,试试大胆的基础颜色和更不寻常的颜色。
 
5. 投资首饰。找一些高质量的单品,搭配不同造型,可以区分好坏造型。
 
6. 层数。穿几层保持温暖而不是穿额外的厚厚的运动服。学习色彩搭配,打造清爽的外观。
 
7. 穿符合年龄的衣服。此条任何方面适用。20岁的年纪不该打扮成40岁…反之亦然。
 
8. 记住,随便不是草率的同义词。休闲意味着时尚和别致的,而不是不考究。
 
9. 首饰要和当日着装风格相配。
 
10. 批量购买。这可能听起来奇怪。但是如果你绝对喜欢你的平底芭蕾鞋,他们不会永远生产下去。所以为什么不在售罄前囤一些?
 
 
不要
 
1. 不要穿紧身裤。打底裤和牛仔样式打底紧身裤不好看,只有懒到无可救药的人才会这么穿。
 
2. 不要穿丝绒运动服。这是一个方便的提示:你不应该在除了健身房以外的地方穿。
 
3. 不要穿夸张的垫肩…除非你踢美式足球。
 
4. 短裤或露脐上衣。不要穿这些。
 
5. 不要让内裤内衣露出来。如果胸罩肩带掉下来,你需要一件无肩带文胸。穿紧身内衣紧身裤会让你的屁股看起来怪怪的。
 
6. 不要穿棒球帽。
 
7. 不要穿芭蕾舞裙。
 
8. 不要穿太多logo的衣服,你不是行走的广告牌。别人会觉得你穿的是假货。
 
9. 不要穿平底运动鞋,运动鞋是跑步穿的。
 
10. 不要穿透明的裤子,这样不好。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Superfoods
 
 
“Superfoods” is something of a misnomer used primarily as a marketing tool. In fact use of the term has been banned in the EU unless the claim is accompanied by a specific medical claim and supported by scientific evidence. AS with everything to do with health, there is no quick fix.
 
Claims that blueberries can prevent aging or that acai can improve eyesight aren’t actually supported by credible evidence. And think about it – do you honestly believe that eating just blueberries will prevent the inevitable onslaught of time?
 
 
Nothing can really substitute a good, balanced diet. With that in mind, there are of course certain foods that it doesn’t hurt to incorporate into your diet for their high vitamin content. That is not to say these foods will cure cancer or make you immune to every disease, but they are a good source of nutrition. 
 
We need different vitamins to keep our bodies healthy. For the most part we cannot synthesize these ourselves so must get them from foods such as fruit, vegetables, meats and dairy products. 
 
 
Iron
Found In:Oysters, white beans, dark chocolate, beef liver, lentils, spinach
Used For: An essential component of hemoglobin, which is found in blood cells and helps to transfer blood around the body. Also supports metabolism, cell functioning, growth and hormone synthesis. 
Notes: Iron deficiency can lead to anemia. Pregnant woman, children and regular blood donors need to monitor their iron intake. 
 
Calcium
Found In: Yoghurt, cheese, sardines, milk, tofu
Used For: Ninety-nine per cent of calcium goes towards your bones and teeth, keeping them strong as they reform.
Notes: Yoghurt and cheese may be generally high in calcium, but the levels can vary depending on the specific product. Plain and low fat is the best for yoghurts, while mozzarella tops the cheese list, closely followed by cheddar. A lack of calcium can lead to osteoporosis later in life, which makes your bones less dense and more susceptible to fractures. 
 
Magnesium
Found In: Almonds, spinach, cashews, peanuts, soymilk 
Used For: Synthesizing DNA, transporting calcium and potassium across cell membranes. 
Notes: Abundant in the body with a variety of functions, deficiencies in this vitamin are fortunately unlikely unless you have an existing health condition or suffer from chronic alcoholism.
 
 
Vitamin A
Found In: Sweet potato, beef liver, spinach, carrots, pumpkin pie
Used For: Light absorption in eyes, supporting immune system
Notes: Vitamin A deficiency leads to blindness and even death for hundreds of thousands of children in developing countries this year. Over a decade ago, a new strain of GM rice containing Vitamin A was created to address this, but has not yet been used due to the prolonged campaigns of anti-GM and anti-globalization protestors. During the time spent arguing, 8 million children to date have died.
 
Vitamin B6
Found In: Chickpeas, beef liver, tuna, salmon, chicken breast
Used For: This vitamin has over one hundred functions, including aiding the immune system and cognitive development.
Notes: Deficiencies are uncommon but early warning signs include lip scaling and a swollen tongue.
 
Vitamin B12
Found In: Clams, liver, trout, salmon, tuna
Used For: Forming red blood cells, synthesizing DNA, neurological function 
Notes: Vegetarians in particular have to be careful to get enough vitamin B12 as it occurs mostly in meats and fish. However breakfast cereals fortified with Vitamin B12 are easy to find and tasty to boot, often also containing high levels of other materials like zinc and iron.
 
 
Vitamin D
Found In: Sunshine! Cod liver oil, swordfish, salmon, tuna, fortified orange juice
Used For: Calcium absorption and bone growth 
Notes: You can get all the vitamin D you need just by going out in the sun and letting it absorb into your skin. 
 
Vitamin E
Found In: Wheat germ oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, sunflower oil, safflower oil
Used For: As an antioxidant, it protects from harmful free radicals.
Notes: Free radicals are often found in pollution and cigarette smoke and are suspected of causing cancer by damaging cells.
 
Zinc
Found In: Oysters, crab, beef, lobster, cashews
Used For: Boosting the immune system, healing wounds and growth and development.
Notes: If you eat a lot of legumes and grains you may need to up your zinc intake as these foods are known to inhibit absorption.
 
 
“超级食品”是一个主要用作营销的误称。事实上该术语已被欧盟禁止,除非是特定的医疗声明或科学证据的支持。健康不是一蹴而就的。
 
据说蓝莓可以防止老化或巴西莓可以改善视力,这些实际上不是由可信的。想一想——你真的相信只吃蓝莓就可以与时间抗衡吗?
 
 
没有任何东西可以替代均衡合理的饮食。考虑到这一点,当然,某些食物不会妨碍高含量维生素的吸收。这并不是说这些食物可以治愈癌症或者使你免疫所有疾病,但他们是很好的营养来源。
 
我们需要不同的维生素来保持我们的身体健康。在大多数情况下我们不能合成维生素,所以必须加强食物来源,如水果、蔬菜、肉类和乳制品。
 
 
铁元素
来源:牡蛎、白豆、黑巧克力、牛肝、扁豆、菠菜
作用:血红蛋白的重要组成部分,它存在于血液细胞,有助于血液流遍全身。还支持新陈代谢、细胞功能、增长和激素的合成。
注意:缺铁会导致贫血。孕妇、儿童和定期献血者需要注意他们的铁摄入量。
 
钙元素
来源:酸奶、奶酪、沙丁鱼、牛奶、豆腐
作用:人类的骨骼和牙齿百分之九十九都是钙,从而使它们保持强韧。
注意:酸奶和奶酪通常都富含钙,但水平取决于特定的产品。普通和低脂酸奶是最好的,马苏里拉在奶酪里含钙最高,紧随其后的是切达干酪。缺钙会导致骨质疏松症中,使骨骼密度较低,人更容易骨折。
 
镁元素
来源:杏仁、菠菜、腰果、花生、豆浆
作用:合成DNA,帮助钙和钾细胞跨膜运输。
注意:丰富的镁元素在体内具有多种功能, 镁元素同样不可缺少,除非你有一个现有的健康状况或患有慢性酒精中毒。
 
 
维他命A
来源:红薯、牛肝、菠菜、胡萝卜、南瓜派
作用:亮眼明目,提高免疫力
注意:维生素A缺乏症会导致失明,甚至导致发展中国家成千上万的孩子的思维。十多年前,一种富含维生素A的新型转基因水稻的诞生就是为了解决这个问题,但由于长期的反转基因运动和反全球化示威者,这种转基因水稻并没有得到推广,迄今为止,争论期间800万名儿童已经死亡。
 
维生素B6
来源:鹰嘴豆、牛肝、金枪鱼、三文鱼、鸡胸肉
作用:这种维生素有超过百种的功能,包括提高免疫力和认知发展。
注意:缺乏维生素B6不太常见,但早期症状包括唇缩放和舌头肿胀。
 
维生素B12
来源:蛤、肝、鳟鱼、鲑鱼、金枪鱼
作用:形成红细胞,合成DNA,提高神经功能
注意:素食者尤其要小心,足够的维生素B12主要来自肉和鱼。早餐麦片富含维生素B12,很容易获得也很美味,往往还富含其他维生素,如铁和锌。
 
 
维生素D
来源:阳光、鱼肝油、旗鱼、鲑鱼、鲔鱼、强化橙汁
用于:钙吸收和骨骼生长
注:只要晒晒太阳皮肤就能吸收丰富的维生素D。
 
维生素E
来源:小麦胚芽油、葵花籽、杏仁、葵花籽油、红花籽油
作用:作为一种抗氧化剂,它可以保护我们自由基。
注意:自由基经常在污染和香烟烟雾中被发现,并被怀疑通过破坏细胞引起癌症。
 
锌元素
来源:牡蛎、螃蟹、牛肉、龙虾、腰果
作用:促进免疫系统,愈合伤口和生长发育。
注意:如果你吃了大量的豆类和谷物,你可能需要加大锌摄入量,因为这些食物会抑制锌的吸收。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Special Dietary Requirements
 
 
You have everything planned, all three courses. The wines match the food the napkins match the invitations, all the spoons are laid out in the correct order and you are quite sure your dinner party is set to be a resounding success. Until two hours before a guest calls and tells you they're vegetarian.
 
 
There are a thousand different reasons why people don't eat certain foods – religious ones, health ones or ethical ones. A special dietary requirement is different from not liking something. Given enough time it should be easy to accommodate someone for dinner who can't eat certain types of food and it is the duty of a good host to do so.
 
 
Some people can be a little sensitive about what they can and can't eat. It's not for you to pry, to attempt to 'convert' them or to make a big deal of it. Someone who is vegetarian does not want chicken wafted in their face or slipped into their meal and doing such things is the mark of a bad and inconsiderate hostess. If a guest can't eat gluten, simply prepare a gluten-free alternative. If you have several people with the same diet, why not same yourself time and give everyone the same food.
 
 
That said, the onus is on the other party to let you know if they have a special dietary requirement and unfortunately many people don't bother until they actually arrive. If you're a vegetarian or only eat kosher or halal, let the host know well ahead of time so they can prepare something for you.
 
 
Allergies need to be taken very seriously. Nut allergies mean no food with nuts for anyone present and taking extra care that none of your ingredients contain nuts. Contact with certain food types for people with allergies will put them in hospital straight away and can even kill people. Don't take the risk and let it ruin your event. 
 
 
一切准备就绪。酒与食物相配,餐巾与来宾相配,所有的勺子都按正确的顺序摆放好了,你很肯定今天晚餐一定大获成功。直到两个小时之前,一个客人打电话告诉你他们是素食主义者。
 
 
人们不吃某些食物的原因有很多种:宗教、健康、道德等等。特殊的饮食要求不同于不喜欢吃某个东西。准备时间充裕的话,应该接受客人不能吃某些类型食物,合格的主人有义务这样做。
 
 
有些人对他们能吃的和不能吃的东西有点敏感。他们不是和你抬杠,试敲你竹杠。有的人是素食主义者,他不希望鸡肉出现或饭里有鸡肉,女主人明知故犯的话是不合适的。如果客人不能吃含麸质的东西,那么就准备无麸质的替代品。如果几个人有相同的饮食习惯,为什么不给每个人都相同的食物呢,这样可以节省时间。
 
 
如果有特殊的饮食要求,对方有责任让你知道, 遗憾的是很多人到了主人家里才说。如果你是一个素食主义者或只吃清真食品,请让主人知道提前做准备。
 
 
过敏则需要严肃对待。坚果过敏意味着需要额外照顾,所有食物都吃不含坚果成分。若过敏体质者接触了过敏源,可能会被送医院,严重者会死亡。不要让这样的风险毁了你的宴请。

-2 cups pita chips, coarsely crushed
 
Directions:
- Cut the chard stems into 1/2-inch pieces and the leaves into 1-inch pieces; keep separate. Toast the caraway and cumin seeds in a skillet over medium heat, 1 to 2 minutes. Cool, then grind in a spice grinder or transfer to a resealable plastic bag and crush with a heavy skillet. 
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chard stems and onion and cook until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Clear a space in the pan, then add the tomato paste, harissa, garlic and ground spices. Cook 2 minutes, then stir into the vegetables. Add the chard leaves, chicken broth and 1 cup water, bring to a rapid simmer and cook until the chard is tender, about 10 minutes. Squeeze in the juice from 1/2 lemon and season with salt. 
- Mix the yogurt, the juice from the remaining 1/2 lemon and a pinch of salt. Divide the soup among bowls. Add the eggs, pita chips and a dollop of the yogurt mixture; drizzle with olive oil.

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Sunburn
 
 
Fun in the sun may be all that, but getting burnt is no laughing matter. Not only does it look gross when it starts peeling, but it’s a leading cause of skin cancer and can hurt like hell.
 
The key is prevention. There is no quick cure for sun burn or sun poisoning so it is best to eschew it entirely. Always use sun cream and reapplying it regularly.
 
 
The SPF on a bottle of sun cream stands for Sun Protection Factor. How it works is, in theory, simple. SPF is based on the amount of time it takes your skin to develop a mild redness. If, without sun cream, you develop mild redness after twenty minutes, using SPF 15 will prolong that period to 300 minutes (15 x 20), also known as five hours.
 
However, in reality this formula is subject to many variables, including time of day and location. It is important that the sun screen you choose covers a “broad spectrum” of rays. Traditionally many creams only protected against UVB rays, not UVA.
 
 
Water can also minimize the efficacy of sun screen, even if it says waterproof on the bottle.
 
Most people neither apply a sufficient amount of cream nor do it often enough. Turn it into a game. Until you have enough sun cream on that you slide of the inflatable ring every time you sit on it, you do not have enough.
 
 
A more out-there preventative measure suggests first creating a paste made of tomatoes and then rubbing it over your skin. The idea is that the tomato’s rich nutrients will act as a barrier between UV rays and you.
 
Okay, so you didn’t listen and now look like a lobster fresh from the pot. There is no quick fix to get rid of sunburn. Fortunately there are ways however to help the healing process, prevent further damage and relief pain. And for God’s sake, if you’re burnt stay out of the sun.
 
 
Beyond over the counter treatments, a lot of home remedies have sprung up that people swear by. Although little research has been done into them, it’s worth a try for relieving pain. Common home treatments include applying the following to the affected area:
 
Aloe Vera
Cold compresses
Mint
Vinegar
Menthol
Camphor
Cucumber
Honey
 
 
If burned, remember to continue moisturizing your skin, even as it peels. It may hurt, but your skin will thank you in the long run.
 
Don’t pick at it. It won’t make it look or feel any better.
 
Continued long exposure to the sun will give you a lovely tan now, but in ten years you WILL look like an old wrinkly tea bag. You have been warned.
 
 
阳光下的乐趣有很多种,但晒伤就不好了。晒伤不仅会引起蜕皮,甚至会导致皮肤癌让人生不如死。
 
防护是关键。没有快速治愈晒伤的方法所以最好完全避免。请定期、始终使用防晒霜。
 
 
防晒霜上的SPF代表防晒系数。简单的从理论上说,就是防晒霜如何发挥作用。SPF基于你的皮肤轻度发红的时间测算量值。如果未涂防晒霜的皮肤20分钟后开始泛红的话,那么SPF15的防晒霜使皮肤300(15x20)分钟,也就是五小时后泛红。
 
然而在现实中,这个公式受许多可变因素影响,包括外出时长和地点。因此你选择的防晒霜所包含的“宽谱”的光线变得重要起来。传统上讲,防晒霜只能阻止UVB干扰,而不能阻止UVA。
 
 
水也会降低防晒霜的功效,即使瓶身上写着“防水”。
 
很多人既没有用够量也没有常补涂。把他变成游戏吧。即使用够量,但不补涂也是不行的。
 
 
还有更具预防性的措施:做些番茄酱,把它们抹到皮肤上。番茄酱丰富的营养可以作为紫外线和你之间的屏障。
 
好吧,你没有听,这样会像出锅的龙虾。没有快速修复晒伤的方法。幸运的是,有办法帮助愈合过程,防止更深的伤害和减轻疼痛。而在上帝的份上,如果你被晒伤,请远离太阳。
 
 
除了在柜台治疗外,很多人们验证过的家庭的补救措施如雨后春笋般涌现。虽然没经过什么研究,为了减轻疼痛值得一试。普通家庭治疗包括将以下材料:
 
芦荟
冷敷
薄荷
薄荷醇
樟脑
黄瓜
蜜糖
 
 
如果烧伤,即使脱皮了也要记得继续保湿你的皮肤。它可能会受伤,但今后你的皮肤会感谢你。
 
不要选择它。它不会使你看起来或感觉更好。
 
持续长时间暴露在阳光下,皮肤会变成可爱的褐色,但在十年后你会像一个老皱茶袋。警告过你了哦。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Stay Cool
 
 
Summer is awesome. Whether you're a sun worshipper or prefer protecting your skin beneath an umbrella, there's nothing like blue skies and the happiness associated with good weather. And while protecting your skin should be a number one priority, there's also something else to consider: staying cool.
 
 
You have the sun dress. You have the shades. You have a rocking bod and it's beach time. But if by the time you reach the sand you have a tendency to have more sweat and red blotches than a pig in paradise, that's what people are going to notice. 
 
 
Overheating in the sun can also be dangerous and result in a sunstroke. Follow these tips to not only look cool in the sun, but to actually feel so.
 
 
Do:
 
1. Wear loose, light materials.
 
2. Use deodorant. For some reason a lot of people think they don't need it. But just because you can't smell yourself, doesn't mean other people can't.
 
3. Tie your hear back. Long hair in particular can really heat you up if not swept off your face and shoulders.
 
 
Don't:
 
1. Apply sunscreen in the sun. Apply it 15-30 minutes before you go outside. Not only does this protect your skin and reduce the risk of sunburn, but it stops you from sweating it all off.
 
2. Wear black. It absorbs heat and will make you hotter. Opt for lighter colours or white.
 
 
3. Stay out in the sun if you start feeling dizzy or light headed. It's ok to chill inside for a few minutes and come back out later.
 
4. Wear foundation. Use a little make up as possible to prevent it sliding off your face. If you can bear it, eschew foundation entirely.
 
 
夏天是令人畏惧的。无论你是太阳的崇拜者或喜欢在阳光下撑伞使肌肤免受伤害,没有什么比蔚蓝的天空与好天气更能让人联想起幸福。而保护你的皮肤应该是的首要任务,除此之外如何保持凉爽也是你需要考虑的。
 
 
你有太阳裙,你有树荫,你在沙滩上摇曳身姿。我们会注意到,人们在沙滩上时更加容易汗流浃背甚至起红疹。
 
 
在阳光下曝晒可能是危险的,过热会导致中暑。试试下面这些小技巧吧,不仅可以让你在太阳下看起来很酷而且能真正享受阳光带来的乐趣。
 
 
可以:
 
1. 穿轻便宽松的衣服。
 
2. 使用除臭剂。因为某些原因,很多人认为他们不需要它。但只是因为你不能闻到自己的气味,并不意味着其他人不能。
 
3. 将头发扎起。尤其是长发,如果长发披在肩背上,这样真的会让你觉得更热。
 
 
不要:
 
1. 在阳光下涂抹防晒霜。应在出门前15-30分钟涂抹,这样不仅能保护你的皮肤,减少晒伤的风险,而且能防止你的汗冲掉防晒霜。
 
2. 不要穿黑色的衣服。黑色吸收热量,会使你更热。可以选择较浅的颜色或白色。
 
 
3. 若你在阳光下感到头晕目眩,到房里阴凉片刻再回去吧。
 
4. 涂些粉底。可以画个淡妆来防止汗水流到脸上,如果你可以忍受,也完全可以不化。
 
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Environment Problems in China
 
 
While this is a heavier topic than most that you will find in this book, it is important for everyone to be aware of the changes and dangers facing your country and your planet today as well as what you can do to lesson your part in it. 
 
 
Here are some facts you should know about some of China’s environmental problems:
-Logging and fishing to supply the demand of the population in China causes biodiversity problems as far away as Africa.
-Respiratory and heart diseases attributed to the air pollution have become the leading cause of death in China.
-While efforts are being made to use more renewable resources to power the country, 75% of China’s energy is still produced using coal, a major cause of greenhouse gasses. 
-40% of the water in China’s river systems is unfit for human consumption.
-In Beijing alone there are more than 5 million cars driving around producing carbon emissions and a study done on the city’s air says that for more than half of the average month, breathing in the air of Beijing is akin to living in a smoke-lounge. 
 
 
While these problems are dire, many people see them as something they shouldn’t have to personally concern themselves with. What are you supposed to do about the 5 million cars driving around Beijing? 
 
 
However, it is important to remember that these problems belong to and effect every living thing on this planet, and it is important that each and every one of us make sure that we are doing our part in preventing these issues from getting worse. 
 
 
可能这是这本书里比较沉重的一个话题,但是对于每个人而言了解到环境问题的严重性是非常必要的,了解到我们生存的地球所面临的危险以及如何从自己做起来保护地球。
 
 
对于中国的环境问题,这里有几件事实我必须要告诉你:
-为了满足中国人口对于鱼类的需求,过分的不牢已经对海洋生物多样性产生威胁。
-由于空气污染及废弃导致的心脏疾病,已成为中国人死亡的首要原因。
-虽然人们开始重视可回收、可再生能源,但是75%的中国能源,还是以煤炭为源头,这也是引起温室效应的最大的原因。
-中国河流系统中40%的水源,不适合人类食用。
-只在北京一地,就有多达500万的车辆产生碳排放。一项对城市空气质量的研究指出,平均每个月中超过一般的时间,生活在北京就如同生活在吸烟区休息室中。
 
虽然这些问题让人毛骨悚然,但是很多人并不认为他们自身可以做出什么努力。面对北京一个城市的500万私家车,你又会有什么样的举措呢?
 
 
但是,请你一定要谨记,这些环境问题切切实实地影响着地球上的每一条生命,我们必须要确保我们自己的一举一动都在帮助环境保护,并非让环境问题变得越来越糟糕。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Sport
 
It is not secret that many girls use sports as a way to cozy up to the cute athletic jocks.  However, it will be embarrassing if you end up not knowing what you are talking about at all. For those sporty girls out there, skip this chapter.  For those of you who can’t tell one end of a baseball bat from there other, here are some helpful hints. 
 
Different Types of Sports: 
TEAM SPORTS:
 
 
Baseball: Popularized in the United States this sport doesn’t get much international attention.  However, those that are fans are usually very committed fans!  Played in a diamond shaped field Baseball involves on a team playing defense, out in the field, and the other playing offense, by attempting to hit the ball and run all the way around the diamond to score points. 
 
Lingo to Know: Ball, Strike, Out, Inning, Run
 
 
(American) Football: Pretty much only played in the US. The rules are much too complicated to explain in a brief paragraph but involve lots of big muscled men in tight pants tackling each other. 
 
Lingo to Know: Just cheer when the other fans cheer
 
 
Basketball: A sport very popular internationally and growing in popularity in China. Played indoors in a highly kept up court, basketball has two teams who try to get one ball away from each other to score in a basket on the other side of the court from them. 
 
Lingo to Know: Points, Assists, Rebounds, Foul, Travel, Pass
 
 
Hockey: Another internationally popular sport, though usually found in North America.  This game is played with two teams and is very similar to Soccer (also called football) but played on skates on an ice rink with a puck instead of a ball.  
 
Lingo to Know: Offsides, face off, goal, penalty, minor, major
 
 
Football (Soccer): Probably the biggest international sport, soccer is known and played and loved worldwide.  If you were to study up on one sport I would highly recommend it be this one. Played on a large field in a similar formation to hockey (but without the ice), football involves two teams facing off against each other to try to get past the defending plays and kick the ball into the opponents goal. No hands are allowed by anyone except the goalie. 
 
Lingo to Know: Goal! corner kick, off the sides, penalty
 
 
Rugby: Rugby is one of the most physical of sports. Internationally the pinnacle of the sport lies in the Rugby World Cup.  It is especially popular in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.  The team with the ball must move the ball up the field in ‘phases of play’. The ball can never be passed forwards but players can run forwards with the ball or kick the ball forward to chase it down. The opposing team needs to stop the attacking team by tackling and trying to retain the ball.
 
Lingo to Know: Lineout, Maul, Ruck, Scrum
 
对于女生而言,运动不失为一个有益于身心的项目。但是,如果你对于运动什么都不了解,那么将会显得尴尬。对于那些熟悉运动的女生,你大可不必接着看这篇文章。但是对于那些对球类运动一窍不通的女生,这里可能有一些用得上的提示:
 
不同的运动类型:
团队竞技:
 
 
棒球:这是一项风靡美国的运动,但是并没有得到太高的国际关注。然而,这项运动却拥有着十分忠实的追捧者。整个团队在一个零星的棒球场防守,而菱形场地以外则是对方团队进攻的地方,他们虎视眈眈地试图抓住机会抢夺对方手里的棒球,以为自己的团队加分。
 
行话关键词: 球,攻守,出界,带球跑
 
 
(美式)足球: 这项运动也基本上只在美国流行。这项运动的规则过于复杂,不能够在这里做简短的解释。但是参与这项运动的大多都是肌肉发达的帅哥们穿着紧身裤,互相竞争。
 
行话关键词:作为球迷,尽情欢呼就对了!
 
 
篮球:风靡全球的一项球类运动,同时近些年在中国也越来越受欢迎。这一项室内球类运动,两支球队拼尽全力得到篮球,并投入属于自己队的篮筐,即为得分。
 
行话关键词: 得分,助攻,篮板,犯规,通过
 
 
曲棍球:又一项流行于全球的球类运动,大多数在北美洲。这项运动也是两队互相竞争,类似于足球,但是双方在溜冰场穿着溜冰鞋争夺一颗冰球,而不是一颗普通的球。
 
行话关键词: 越位,进球,点球,主攻,助攻
 
 
足球: 这也许是最大的国际性体育项目了,受到全世界人的关注及喜爱。如果你只想钻研在一项运动上,那我极力推荐足球。这项运动类似于曲棍球(只是不在冰面上),两支队伍互相竞争,得到球之后送入门框。除了守门员之外,全程都不能够用手接触足球。
 
行话关键词: 得分,角球,罚球
 
 
橄榄球: 橄榄球是最需要体能的体育运动之一。橄榄球世界杯是橄榄球界世界级的比赛。这项运动在欧洲、澳洲和新西兰特受追捧。拥有橄榄球的队伍必须死守防线,队员可以带球跑动或是抛弃球之后拼命接到它,所有队员都要试图保持球在自己的队伍,阻挡对手的进攻。
 
行话关键词: 线外、抢假球、背罚
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Getting Fit – What not to do
 
 
You might think you make a really cute potato, but at other times you find yourself wondering if there is another way. Imagine being able to run through the hills of Salzburg singing all day – and not being out of breath within five minutes. 
 
 
Fitness is about more than just looking good. Being fit is part of leading a healthy life and reducing your risk of catching diseases or aging prematurely. But, yes, it makes you look good too.
 
With so many guide books and courses and videos out there, working out how to start getting into an aesthetically pleasing shape can be overwhelming. Jumping in and doing too much too soon without proper guidance can lead you to giving up after a few tries.
 
 
Getting into shape isn’t easy. But it is easier to stay in shape once you’re there. 
 
There is no quick fix that will see you shed thirty pounds in three days or give you abs in a week. Getting fit is a long and painful marathon, not a quick light sprint. Following fitness plans that promise quick results is a sure way to disappointment.
 
Compliment your fitness routine with an all-round healthy lifestyle. There’s no point running three times a week if you’re going to spend every night eating burgers, smoking profusely and drinking a gallon of beer. 
 
 
Getting fit does not have to mean jogging. Some people hate jogging and it’s perfectly okay to get fit without it. With so many different types of sport, there is always something to suit everyone. Check out yoga, basketball, swimming, ice skating, gymnastics, dancing, badminton, trampolining – there really is no excuse. 
 
Don’t try too much too soon. If you’re plan was to run four times a week stick to it. Even if on one of your off days you’re itchy to go, try to hold off. That way your enthusiasm will last. 
 
 
有时候你可能只会想窝在沙发里,但是又有时候会想让自己有另一种生活的方式。想象一下,如果能够跑完整个萨尔茨堡,整天唱歌,但又不会累到大喘气,这种生活会是什么样呢?
 
 
健康,不仅仅是为了好看,其意义更大。健康,意味着健康的生活习惯及方式,以减少得病或是早衰的几率。而且,这会让你看着更加美丽。
 
市面上有太多的书籍、课程或是视频,不断地冲击你对于健康美的追求。但是冒然地参加一项活动,或是在一瞬间没有专业指导下做太多的运动,只会让你望而却步。
 
 
塑造良好身材并不容易,但是一旦塑造成了,就更容易保持住这样的状态。
 
其实并没有很快速的方法,可以让你三天内减掉30磅,或是一周练出腹肌。健康的体态是需要长时间痛苦的过程的。那些所谓的快速健身方法,一定会令你失望。
 
全方位健康的生活方式,才是你应该有的健身计划。如果你每周慢跑三次,但是每晚都在啃汉堡,吸烟或是饮酒,那一切都是无用功。
 
 
健身并不意味着只有慢跑。有一些人非常讨厌跑步,但是一样可以非常健康。有很多种不同类型的运动,每个人都可以选择到最适合自己的一款。比如瑜伽、篮球、游泳、滑冰、体操、舞蹈、羽毛球、蹦床等等,那么多选择,你没有借口说你不喜欢。
 
当然也不要一下子尝试太多。如果你计划每周四次慢跑,那就一定要坚持下去。即使有时你想偷懒,请你务必坚持。这样持续下去,你的热情也会保持不退。

- Keep your photos high quality and your posts meaningful
-Keep it consistent; whether it be opinions, writing style or photo style
-Be Original! Reposting funny photos will only get you so far…
-Interact with your followers and fans to keep them engaged
 
Justin Bieber
 
DON’T:
-Over share; nobody cares what you had for breakfast this morning
-Resort to any ‘get followers’ apps. These followers aren’t interested in what you have to share! They are simply interested in getting more followers themselves. 
-Be fake.  It is hard to put on a façade for a long period of time. By keeping your pages genuine you are amassing followers that actually care about what YOU have to say rather than those who just respond to what you think they want to hear.

Being in a fandom:
 
-While following people on social media is a great way to stay up to date on your favorite celebrities, companies or other organizations, be wary of taking it too far.
 
The Dos and Don’ts of being in a fandom:
 
DO: 
-Follow whomever you like.
-Repost or comment on those posts you have something constructive to say about.
-Do get excited when you are noticed! 
 
Bella Hadid
 
DON’T:
-Comment on every single photo. Save it for when you have something constructive to say
-Beg for attention.  There is nothing more desperate looking than a comment on a celebrity’s account begging “Please respond to me!”
-Lose your mind when you are noticed (or not noticed). They are just people too! It isn’t the end of the world! 
 
Pomellato
 
与你的追随者接触:
-你的社交网络页面应该是关于你为首要,其次是你的追随者。
-不要迷恋于点赞或者追随者的数量,而应该集中于你的页面本身,在这制作那些能够长远地真正吸引追随者的东西。
 
Mario Merz, Numers in the Woods
 
与追随者之间该做什么和不该做什么
 
要做:
- 定期发文 
- 保证你照片的高品质和你的文章有意义 
-保持一致性;无论是意见,写作风格或照片风格
-原创!转发搞笑照片只会让你越走越远...
-与你的追随者和粉丝们互动,保证他们的参与度
 
切勿:
-过度分享;没有人会关注你今天早饭吃了什么
-采用任何“获得追随者”的应用程序。这些追随者对你的分享一点儿不感兴趣!他们只对让他们自己获得更多的追随者感兴趣。
-虚假。这是很难把一个门面的时间长。保持你的网页真诚,你会得到真正关心你说什么的追随者,而不是那些只想从你这听到他们想要的回应的追随者。
 
作为一个影迷:
-在社交媒体上关注你最喜爱的名人,企业或者其他组织是保持最新消息的好方法,但要注意适度就好。
 
Marina Abramović
 
作为一个影迷该做什么和不该做什么:
 
要做:
-关注你喜欢的人。 
-在转发或评论那些帖子时说一些建设性的话。 
-当你被注意到感到兴奋!.
 
Giuseppe Arcimboldo
 
切勿:
-评论每一张照片。留着等到你有有建设性的话要说时再说
-乞求关注。没有什么比在名人账户上乞求“请回复我!”这样的评论更让人绝望
-当你被注意到(或没有注意到)时失去理智。他们只是人!这不是世界末日!
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|When and What to Post
 
 
 
As many readers probably know, there is an art to making and maintaining a flourishing Instagram page. What post will get the most likes? What time of day should you post so that what you have to say is see by the most people? As the world of social media grows, so do the studies done to try to pinpoint how to create the perfect post. Here is some of what we have learned:
 
 
Facebook: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 2
Best time to post: Wednesdays, 1-3pm
Worst time to post: Weekends before 8am or after 8pm
 
Twitter: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 3
Best time to post: Monday-Thursday, 1-3pm
Worst time to post: Every day after 8pm, Friday after 3pm
 
Instagram: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 2
Best time to post: Wednesdays, 2-5pm
Worst time to post: 9am and 6pm
 
 
Questions to ask yourself when posting:

Does this post contain any punishable activity that should get out?
A surprising amount of people have been arrested for bragging or displaying some kind of illegal activity on their social media pages, assuming that this would not be checked.  Keep in mind that anything you post is out there for the world to see!  Even those photos or messages sent privately to friends can be accessed if necessary so BE AWARE of what you are posting.
 
Does any of the content in this post appear hateful or discriminatory?
While the widespread voicing and discussion of opinions is one of the things that make social media valuable today, you must recognize the difference between a strong opinion and hate speech, and learn to avoid the latter. 

Does this post contain any sensitive information that shouldn’t be posted publicly for the world to see?
Keep in mind that you must remain aware that some information is not posted on a public forum such as, home address, work address, personal phone number etc .  
 

Am I posting something genuinely or begging for the attention?
Begging for likes, affectionately termed ‘like-whoring’ is the act of posting for the simple pleasure of having your ego boosted by the number of people who like or respond to your post. While everyone deserves a bit of an ego boost now and then I would advise you be aware of the difference between tactfully asking for appreciation and demanding it.  For example, nobody is fooled by the glammed-up selfie you posted with the pouty caption “Who else thinks I am so ugly right now?” If you truly believe you are ugly in a photo, don’t post it.  If you want the appreciation of others, don’t try to belittle yourself in an attempt to receive compliments.  Nobody is fooled, and it makes you look a whole lot worse than if you had simply posted “Feeling great today!” or some other, more positive caption.

Is there any possibility that this post could look bad to a current or future employer?
Many companies and employers are beginning to introduce stricter guidelines as to what can appear on their employee’s social media networks.  For example, in many school districts in the United States, aspiring teachers must make sure that not one of the photos posted on their pages displays them or anyone around them holding an alcoholic beverage or smoking anything (cigarettes included). When posting consider the old saying “Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.” and dress your social network pages accordingly.

Is anything in this post antagonizing or insulting to any group of people?
On Facebook, the average person has a couple hundred friends of varying ethnicities, lifestyles and backgrounds. Everything posted there will most likely reach a much wider range of people than something spoken aloud. Therefore you must remain very aware of what you post and how it may sound to other people. A 14 year-old-boy in the United States is currently facing 2 years in prison for a photo he had considered amusing (displaying him pantomiming oral intercourse on a statue of Jesus Christ) but was picked up by a news station and deemed part of a “War on Christianity.” Keep in mind that you may have a different sense of humor or opinion than others and make sure that nothing you post can be seen as antagonizing. 
 
Remember:
Everything you post online will stay online!

The Golden Rule:
If you wouldn’t like your grandmother to see it, it shouldn’t be online.
 
 
很多读者可能知道,制作和维护一个蓬勃发展的Instagram的网页是一种艺术。什么样的帖子能得到最多的点赞?一天里应该在什么时间发文,应该说什么让大多数人看到?随着社交媒体世界的迅速发展,尝试找出如何打造完美的帖子做一些后期研究。下面是一些我们得知的内容:
 
 
Facebook:
理想的每天发帖数:2
最佳发帖时间:周三,下午1-3点
最糟糕的发帖时间:周末早上8点前或晚上8点以后
 
Twitter:
理想的每天发帖数:3
最佳发帖时间:周一至周四,下午1-3点
最糟糕的发帖时间:每天晚上8点之后,周五下午3点以后
 
Instagram:
理想的每天发帖数:2
最佳发帖时间:周三,下午2-5点
最糟糕的发帖时间:早上9点或下午6点
 
 
发帖时要问自己的问题:
 
这则帖子中是否包含任何会被处罚的活动应该被剔除的?
数量多到令人惊奇的人已经涉嫌在他们的社交媒体网页上夸大或展出的一些非法活动并假定这将不会被检查。请记住,任何你发布的内容都是给全世界看的!即使是那些私下发送给朋友的照片或信息如有必要也是可以存取的,所以你要知道你在发什么。
 
在这则帖子的内容中是否显示出任何憎恨或歧视?
意见的广泛发声和讨论是使社交媒体在当今变得有价值的事情之一,你必须认识到一个强大的舆论和仇恨言论之间的区别,并学会避免后者。
 
 
这则帖子中是否含有任何不应该公之于众的敏感信息?
请记住,你必须保持注意,有些信息不该在一个公开论坛发布,如家庭住址、工作地址、个人电话号码等。
 
我发布的东西是真实的还是为了乞求关注?
渴望得到点赞的人,被戏称为“点赞婊”,指的是发布内容仅为了从博取他人的点赞数和回应数中得到简单自我膨胀的快乐。虽然现今每个人都应该得到自我提升,我的建议是你需要知道巧妙的寻求欣赏和要求得到欣赏之间的差别。例如,你发布了一张经过盛装打扮的自拍照加上一句看似生气的说明:“现在还有谁认为我很丑?”,没有人会上当,如果你真的相信你很丑,那么你不要发布它。如果你真心希望得到别人的赞赏,不要通过贬低自己去企图得到赞扬。这看起来比你只是简单地张贴差了一大堆“今天感觉好极了!”或一些其他的积极的内容更差。
 
是否有可能你现在发布的这个帖子被当前或未来的雇主看到会不太好?
许多公司和企业开始执行严格的指导方针,什么是可以在他们的雇员的社交媒体上发布的。例如,在美国的许多学区,有抱负的教师必须确保贴在自己的社交网络上的照片没有一张会看到他们或他们周围的人拿着含酒精饮料或者在吸任何烟类(包括香烟)。当你要发布内容时请考虑一句老话“为你想要的工作去打扮穿着,而不是你拥有的工作。”,请将这句话应用在你的社交媒体上。
 
我发布的这篇内容是否会与人树敌或侮辱到任何人?
在Facebook上,平均每人都有几百个不同种族,生活方式和背景朋友。一切发布的帖子有将有可能被一个更广泛的人群看到,比你大声说话引起的关注还要多。因此,你必须非常清楚你发布的内容被他人看到会产生什么影响。一名14岁美国男孩目前正面临2年的监禁,他发布了一张他认为有趣的照片(他对着耶稣的雕像作口交的手势),但被一个新闻台搜索出来并认为那是“向基督教宣战”的意思。请记住,你的有幽默感或想法有可能和其他人都有所不同,确保不会发布任何与人树敌的内容。
 
记住:
任何你在线上发布的东西都要保持清醒!
 
黄金法则:
如果你不希望你的祖母看到它,那么它不应该被发布到网上。

Your home is your castle and nobody likes castles covered in empty pizza boxes, broken chairs and dusty shelves. Your own little empire should be a beacon of beauty and learning, not a little backwater fighting civil wars between roaches and ants.
 
Your home doesn’t necessarily have to be tidy 24/7, but it should at least be clean. You don’t know when you might suddenly have guests.
 
Julius Shulman
 
Tidy – when everything is neat and ordered
Clean – when meets a reasonable hygienic standard
 
Everyone has their dream home. Maybe it’s full of book shelves up to the ceiling and a warm rug by the fireplace, or ultra-modern and metallic. Stop thinking about what your home will be like in the future and make that a reality now. 
 
Be an artist. You like your wardrobe but the colour doesn’t match your new place? Get some paints and overalls and spend an afternoon pretending you’re an Italian designer. 
 
Dali with Coco Chanel
 
Invest in some art. It doesn’t have to be Van Gogh or Dali, but decorating the walls with some cool prints came completely redefine a space. Check out your local art galleries for inspiration.
 
If you have the cash to splash and want some unique and horrendously beautiful furniture, buy it in Bali. Enough said. 
 
Amandari, Bali
 
你的家就是你的城堡,没有人喜欢盖得像空比萨饼盒,里面只有破椅子和尘土飞扬的城堡。你自己的小王国应该是一个美丽和学术的灯塔,没有一点蟑螂和蚂蚁的痕迹。
 
你的家并不一定要7天24小时都很整洁,但它至少应该是干净的。你不知道什么时候你会突然有客人到访。
 
Julius Shulman
 
整洁 - 一切都整洁和有序
清洁 - 满足合理的卫生标准
 
每个人都有自己的梦想家园。也许它有一面墙满满是书的书架,在壁炉旁有温暖的地毯或有超现代和金属风格。别只想着你的家在未来会是什么样子了,让它成为现实吧。
 
成为一名艺术家。你很喜欢你的衣柜,但它的颜色却不符合您的新家风格?准备一些油漆和工作服,花一个下午的时间假装你就是一个意大利设计师。
 

Van Gogh, Self Portrait

 
投资一些艺术品。并不一定要是梵高或者达利,可以用一些很酷的画作来装饰墙壁,彻底地重新定义你的空间。去当地的艺术画廊看看在当中寻找灵感。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Technology
 
 
The growth of personal technology, in the form of cell phones, laptops, tablets, iPods, and other personal gadgets, is completely changing social interaction on many levels.  In this burgeoning technological world it is important to have at least a little bit of background knowledge:
 
Names to Know:  
 
 
MICROSOFT: An American based multinational technology company that revolutionized personal computer software.  Founded in 1975 by geniuses Bill Gates and Paul Allen, the company develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services. 
 
 
APPLE: Another American based multinational technology company and Microsoft’s major competitor.  Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Ronald Wayne and Steve Wozniak, Apple’s headquarters is located in California from which is runs its very international brand designing, developing and selling consumer electronics.
 
 
DELL: Founded in 1984 by Michael S. Dell, this is one of the biggest privately owned tech companies focusing mainly on personal computers. Based in Texas, Dell, though less popular than Microsoft or Apple, produces, designs, sells and repairs computers. 
 
 
SONY: A Japanese international conglomerate, SONY was founded in 1946 in Tokyo Japan by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morito. 
 
 
 
XIAOMI: A very new but greatly growing Chinese company, XiaoMi was founded in 2010 by Lei Jun, Lin Bin, Hong Feng, Zhou Guangping, Li Wanqiang, Huang Jiangji, Liu De, and Wang Chuan.  Though it has only just begun to be available outside of china, the company shows great promise as its cell phones especially, catch up to the Apple phones in popularity here. 
 
 
Things to think about when finding the perfect phone for you:
 
Picking the perfect cell phone for you is no easy feat and there are many important factors to consider in the process. Today people’s phones are like another arm, something they rely on and need to be able to trust!  Here are some important things to think about when you are trying to find the perfect phone for you. 
 
MAIN USES: If you have a tough job that requires lots of communication you may want to take this into account when looking for your phone. If you are an avid photographer and use your phone camera all the time that is another thing to consider.  If you spend a lot of your time on social media you will want to think about that when looking for phones!
 
SIZE: In China especially, super large phones are becoming more and more common. However, many people still want to make sure that their phone will fit into their back pocket or small bag.  Make sure you decide ahead of time what size phone you are looking for so that you don’t end up hating a great phone just because it isn’t conveniently sized. 
 
PLATFORM: Nowadays the market is full of different platforms for your phone.  There is the iconic iOS platform used by Apple products such as the iPhone. However, many people prefer or are more used to the Android set up, found in XiaoMi phones and Samsung phones or the new Microsoft set up.  Do some research and find out which platform appeals to you before you decide which brand to go with.
 
FREQUENCY OF USE: Are you an avid phone user who will always have your phone in hand and relies on it every minute of every day? If so you are going to want to look at the battery life of any phone before you buy it to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth.  It is a real bummer to have to find an outlet everywhere you stop throughout a busy day.  
 
*HELPFUL HINT: If you are an avid phone user considering buying a travel charger.  This can be plugged in separately from your phone and charged at home so that when you are on the go you can have your phone plugged in and charging in your bag or on your desk at work. 
 
 
随着个人技术的发展,在手机,笔记本电脑,平板电脑,iPad和其他个人小玩意,在许多层面上彻底地改变着社会的互动。在这个新兴技术的世界里,至少要有一点点相关的知识背景非常重要:
 
微软:一家美国的跨国技术公司,它彻底改变了个人电脑软件。由天才比尔·盖茨和保罗·艾伦成立于1975年,公司开发、制造、授权、支持和销售计算机软件,用户电子产品和个人电脑和服务。
 
 
苹果:另一家美国的跨国技术公司,微软的主要竞争对手。由史蒂夫·乔布斯,罗纳德·韦恩和史蒂夫·沃兹尼亚克成立于1976年,苹果公司的总部设在美国加州,经营着非常国际化的品牌设计、开发和销售用户电子产品。
 
戴尔:由迈克尔·戴尔创立于1984年,这是最大的民营高科技公司之一,主要专注于个人电脑。总部在德克萨斯州,戴尔比微软或苹果稍冷门一些,主要生产、设计、销售和维修电脑。
 
 
索尼:日本国际集团,索尼公司由井深大和盛田昭夫于1946年成立于日本东京。
 
小米:一家非常新的且成长非常迅速的中国公司,小米由雷军,林斌,洪峰,周光平,黎万强,黄江吉,刘德和王川成立于2010年。虽然中国以外地区的销售才刚刚开始,该公司表示未来其手机极有可能赶上苹果手机的普及。
 
 
思考一下如何为自己找到属于你的完美手机:
 
挑选一只完美手机对你来说不是一件容易的事情,在这个过程中有很多重要的因素要考虑。现在,人们的手机就像是另一只手臂,他们需要依靠它,它需要能够被信任!以下是当你试图找到属于你的最完美手机时要思考的一些重要事情。
 
主要用途:如果你的工作需要大量的通话,当你寻找你的电话时你可能要考虑到这一点。如果你是一个狂热的摄影师和需要大量使用手机摄像是另一个要考虑的。如果你花很多时间在社交媒体上,你会在寻找手机时要考虑到这一点!
 
大小:特别是在中国,超大的手机正变得越来越普遍。但很多人仍希望他们的手机能够放进他们的口袋或小包里。请务必提前决定好你想要什么尺寸的手机,这样你最终不会因为它尺寸太大不方便而讨厌一只大手机。
 
平台:现在市场上充斥着为您的手机设计的不同的平台。如苹果产品iPhone使用的标志性的iOS平台。然而,有很多人更喜欢或更习惯安卓的系统设置,如小米手机和三星手机,或新微软的系统。在你决定使用哪个品牌之前做一些调查研究,并找出哪个平台更吸引你。
 
使用频率:你是无时无刻都把手机揣在手里,每天每一分钟都依靠它的一个狂热手机用户吗?如果是,在购买之前你会需要考虑手机的电池寿命,以确保你物有所值。这会是一个真正让你为停止忙碌的一天而四处寻找的一个发泄出口。
 
 
*提示:如果你是一个狂热手机用户,考虑购买一个旅行充电器。这样你的手机不在家里也能充上电,当你在旅途中或在工作中都能给你的手机充电。

Yves Saint Laurent
 
10 Designers that all women should know
 
10. Yves Saint Laurent
Laurent, 1936-2008, was a French designer famous for his iconic reimagining of ‘masculine’ clothes and tailoring them into beautiful pieces for women.  He was well known for pushing the boundaries of what was then common in the fashion world and was the first to incorporate Non-European cultural references into his clothes as well as the first designer to start hiring non-white models to walk his runway shows.  Perhaps his most famous contribution to the fashion world was his introduction of women’s ‘power suits.’ 
“The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves. But for those who haven't had the fortune of finding this happiness, I am there.” ― Yves Saint-Laurent
 
Pierre Cardin
 
9.Pierre Cardin
Cardin, born in 1922 in Italy, was most influential in the late 20th century for his clothes that looked as though they may have come out of the 25th century.  His designs stunned with their futuristic appearances and geometric feel.  He was one of the first designers that displayed unisex styled clothing. 
 
Tom Ford
 
8. Tom Ford
Ford is an American designer most who received the 2000 Best International Designer award. He famously claims that originally he had gone to school to be an actor, and fell into the world of fashion design.  In his career Ford has been creative director of YSL and Gucci and in currently starting out a second career as a film director. 
“I do struggle because I’m attracted to beautiful things, yet at the same time I am actually very aware, in some sense, their lack of value and that the most important things in life are your connections to other people.” ― Tom Ford
 
Christian Dior
 
7.Christian Dior
The French designer, 1905-1957, is most famous for discovering the ‘New Look’ silhouette and revolutionizing women’s clothing in the years after World War II. 
“Women are most fascinating between the ages of 35 and 40 after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass 40, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely.” ― Christian Dior 
 
Ralph Lauren
 
6. Ralph Lauren
With a net worth now nearing $7.9 billion, the American designer, born in 1939, was the creator of the iconic polo shirt, a staple that has remained nearly unchanged and is still a classic piece today.  The polo logo first appeared in 1970 on Lauren’s runway suits and on the classic polo in ’72.
“Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” ― Ralph Lauren
 
Versace
 
5. Donatella Versace
After her brother, Giovanni ‘Gianni’ Versace’s, murder in 1977 the Italian born designer took over her brother’s semi-known label and made it into something iconic.  A relatively recent addition to the fashion world, the now 66 year old mounted her very first runway show ever in 2000 and since then has made the Versace line into something covered internationally.
“Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas” ― Donatella Versace
 
Calvin Klein

Armani, an Italian designer born in 1934, is particularly noted in the fashion world for his menswear.  The clean, tailored lines of his suits quickly made classics, the precipice of suit design. Armani is also credited with pioneering the modern red carpet fashions that we see gracing the pages of every magazine today.

Coco Chanel
 
1. Coco Chanel
This French designer is perhaps the most famous name in the fashion world. Born 1883 and dying 1971 she began the Chanel brand, which still maintains its elite status in the high fashion world today. Chanel popularized the sporty, casual chic look for women and completely revolutionized the idea of women’s modesty by liberating everyone from the constraints of the classic corset silhouette in the post World War I era.  
“It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.” ― Coco Chanel

“我一直单身也许并非偶然。如果要一个男人和我一起生活可能会非常难,除非他非常强大。如果他比我强,我将无法和他生活......我既不聪明也不笨,但我不认为我是一个平庸的人。我不是一个女商人而一直在从商,我曾经爱过但不是一个为爱而生的女人。我曾爱过两个男人,我想,他们会记得我,在人间或者天堂,因为男人会永远记住使得他们担心和不安的女人。我在考虑他人和生活方面做到了最好,我没有严格的戒律,但我有对正义的见解。“― Coco Chanel
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|How to dress your own age
 
 
Growing up is beautiful. You attain freedom, amass more and more cool stuff, make money to travel and get a firmer grip on who you are. Ageing does have its downsides too though, which need to be embraced as much as the positives. 
 
 
One of the biggest mistakes women make as they grow older is not adapting their fashion sense to suit them. After a lady hits a certain age, the mini shorts and fishnet tights need to be thrown away, and the t-shirts with the cute animé characters may need to be given to a younger family member to enjoy. 
 
 
There is nothing worse than a forty year old woman trying to dress cute. You are sexy and independent. Not twelve and desperate for a Sailor Moon costume. With so much pressure to look and act young, women try to cling to things that didn't even look to great when they were young – plush character bags, cat ears, ice cream cone earrings – to show their care free and youthful spirit.
 
 
A woman with a career, money and culture doesn't want to look cute. Say goodbye to the tights with cats on and opt for a more classy look. There's so much you can wear now that wouldn't have suited you as a teen or twenty-something. If Audrey Hepburn wouldn't be seen dead in it, neither should you.
 
 
逐渐地成熟是美妙的。你获得了自由,积累了越来越多的好东西,挣钱去旅行,而且越来越确信你是谁。不过,年龄的增长也有负面的影响,需要我们尽可能积极地去拥抱这种改变。
 
 
一个女人最容易犯的之一错误就是,不能随着年龄的增长来选择相应的时尚品味。当一位女士到了一定的年龄,她们的超短裤和渔网紧身衣就该被丢掉了,而印着卡通形象的短袖也该留给年轻的家庭成员来享用了。
 
 
还有一种比四十岁的女人扮可爱更糟糕的事情。你非常的性感和独立。再也不是渴望有一身美少女战士服的年龄了。但是在带着想要看起来更年轻的压力,一些女人就常常执念于一些即使年轻也驾驭不了的东西:毛茸茸的包包,猫耳发卡,冰激凌耳坠,来显示她们的满不在乎和年轻的精神。
 
 
有着自己的职业,积蓄和文化的女人不需要看起来可爱。和猫脸紧身衣说拜拜,选择更经典的外形。许多你现在可以穿得服饰并不适合你年轻或二十岁的时候。奥黛丽·赫本永远定格在了二十岁,而你不应当这样。
 
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Style
 
 
Style (noun)-a mode of fashion, as in dress, especially good or approved fashion; elegance; smartness
 
 
Style is perhaps the most multi-faceted, fact less topic of this entire book. Style is based not off of laws but around the opinions of the few who study it. That being said, there are very definitive guidelines, and while your style is your own, there are definitely some serious Do’s and some perhaps more serious Don’ts! 
 
 
Developing Your Personal Style: 
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel 
 
1. Personal style is very important. It creates a first impression to those around you and tells people something about you before you have even been introduced. You can use it to stand out, or to blend it, but essentially personal style and how you appear to the wider world defines what kind of person you are socially. 
When beginning the search for your personal style, the first and most important things to think about are:
 
2. Your age! You must be aware of your age, and not fall into the traps of dressing younger and looking immature and unreliable, or dressing older, and looking boring and matronly. 
 
 
3. Your occupation! Your job will, in part, no matter how much you dread it doing so, affect the way you dress. If you are working in a professional setting you will need to look clean cut and will not be able to run around in torn up jeans and crop tops. 
 
4. Your lifestyle! As great as stilettos may make your legs look, small town girls will stick out like a sore thumb in these shoes, and walking on anything other than pavement or floors will be very difficult. Know what type of lifestyle you live and make sure you are dressing appropriately. 
 
 
5. Your goals! There is a say, dress for the job you want. If you are hoping to climb the corporate ladder at work, dress the part, showing your sophistication and beauty! If you want to get fired, feel free to wear your pajamas and slippers!
 
HINT: Developing your personal style is not just about going out a buying a ton of clothing pieces you like. In order to use your wardrobe to its maximum potential, make sure you buy lots of basic (jeans, black pants, plain but nice shirts). These kinds of pieces will go with anything making your statement ‘style’ pieces pop and allowing you to use them in different ways for a more versatile sophisticated wardrobe. This is a much better solution than you ending up with one terrific outfit that you love, but no other way to wear the individual items in it.
 
 
Fashion Faux Pas to Avoid:
 
1. Bra Straps! 
Nothing looks less professional than easily visible bra straps. For difficult tops invest in a well fitting strapless bra, or in the case of a racer-back top, try pinning the straps together at the back so they aren’t visible. 
 
2. Panty Lines!
What may have started out as a perfect outfit can be absolutely ruined by the distracting outline of your undergarments being clearly visible.  Make sure you are wearing thinner underwear, maybe lace or a thin elastic ‘invisible’ pair, when you are dressing in tight bottoms to avoid this embarrassing occurance.
 
 
3. Daytime Eveningwear! 
Nothing is more awkward than seeing someone dressed to the nine, walking around town during the day.  Just because your clothes are fancier does not mean they are more fashionable. 
 
4. Too Much Bling!
When in doubt, avoid rhinestones!  There are many styles that make a little sparkle look great but when even a little bit overdone appears more cheap and tasteless than looking like you came off worse in a fight with a hoard of bedazzlers. 
 
 
5. Too Much Skin!
If you are worried that you are showing too much skin for a given occasion, than you probably are. Tiny shorts and crop tops do not a classy woman make.
 
6. Ill Fitting Styles!
Always, always, always, always, try everything on before leaving the store with it.  It will look much more put together wearing a slightly less bold outfit that fits you exceptionally well, than wearing ill-fitting clothes.
 
 
7. Accessory Overload!
Make sure with accessories that you don’t overdo it!  An outfit should compliment your accessories rather than battle with them for attention.
 
8. Un-walkable Shoes!
No matter how expensive your brand new stilettos might be, don’t wear them unless you are sure you will be able to walk around without looking like you might fall down at any moment. Nobody will notice your killer outfit if they have to hold you up all day.
 
 
9. Wrinkles!
Make sure everything you wear is pressed and wrinkle free.  Nothing can rumple up a classic combination more than a nice piece of clothing that looks like it’s been used as a pillow. 
 
“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn” ― Orson Welles
 
 
风格(名词):时尚的方式之一,在穿衣打扮中,特指非常好的或者被认可的时尚;优雅,智慧。
 
风格或许是整本书里最多面性的,最形而上的一个概念。风格不依据具体的规则,却契合于少数研究它的人的观点。然而,它也有着非常具体的指南,虽然你的风格你说了算,但是这里仍旧有一些严肃的“可行”,与更严肃的“不可行”等教条。
 
 
找到自己的个性风格
 
“低劣的打扮令别人记住这身衣着,无可挑剔的打扮使别人记住这位女人。”——可可·香奈儿
 
1. 个人风格非常重要。它直接影响人们对你的第一印象,并在你做自我介绍之前无声地传达关于你的信息。你可以藉此出类拔萃,也可以因之泯然大众,但是,本质上你的个人风格,或者说你展现给世界的外表定义了你在社会中是什么样的人。
 
2. 当开始寻找你的个人风格的时候,首先需要考虑的重要因素有:
 
3. 你的年龄。要考虑年龄的因素,不要陷入打扮年轻的陷阱,而使自己看起来不成熟或者不靠谱。抑或是打扮得太老,而看起来无趣又过于稳重。
 
 
4. 你的职业。你的职业会部分地影响你的着装,不管你如何讨厌你的工作。如果你的工作非常的职业化,那么你就不得不干净整洁,再也不能穿着破洞牛仔裤到处跑。
 
5. 你的风格。穿着细高跟鞋会使双腿显得苗条修长,然而在一个小城镇穿这样的鞋会显得特别突兀,而且除了人行道和地板,在其他地方上行走会非常困难。所以要清楚你的生活风格是什么样子的,并确保穿着得体。
 
6. 你的目标。有人说,为你想要的工作而打扮。如果你想在工作中一步步晋升,那么就通过穿着打扮,来突显你的智慧与美貌。如何想要被炒,那么尽情地穿睡衣拖拉板吧。
 
 
指南:发展你的个人风格不是意味着出去买一堆堆喜欢的衣服。也为了最大程度地利用你的衣橱,请多买些基础实用的衣服吧(牛仔裤,黑短裤,朴素而大方的衬衣)。这些类型的衣服更加的百搭,也可以让你有更大的空间来发挥想象,声明自己的风格。这比你买一个自己喜爱的非常漂亮的衣服,却没有和它相搭配的单品要好得多。
 
 
需要避免的一些时尚失礼:
 
1. 胸罩绷带! 
没有什么比露在外面的胸罩带子更让你显得不职业化了。可以试试穿一条合身的抹胸,如果穿的是跑步背心,那就把两条带子扎在一起。
 
2. 内裤线
一条完美的紧身裤绝对可以被清晰可见的内裤线给瞬间毁掉。确保在穿紧身裤的时候,要身着更纤细的内衣,可以是蕾丝的或者薄薄的松紧内衣,以避免尴尬的发生。
 
3. 白日晚礼服
还有什么比大白天身着盛装在大街上晃悠令人尴尬的吗?衣着精美并不代表你就比别人时尚。
 
 
4. 太过于珠光宝气
如果拿捏不准,那就不要戴人造钻石!很多的一些风格可以使一些珠宝起到锦上添花的效果,然而稍有过度,就会显得比一群刚下飞机的穿得琳琅满目的人更加没品。
 
5. 暴露过度皮肤
如果你觉得在某个场合暴露了太多皮肤,那么差不多你就想对了。小短裤和露脐短上衣很少能塑造经典女人的形象。
 
6. 不合身的风格
千万千万要在出商店之前试一试要买的衣服。有时候穿着稍微保守一点总比不合身强。
 
   
7. 过多首饰
过犹不及,衣服是用来衬托你的首饰的,而不是相互打架争抢注意力。
   
8. 不能行走的鞋
不管你的新鞋有多贵,如果穿上它就摇摇欲坠寸步难行,那就脱下来吧。如果你得整天有你扶着你走,那么没人会在意你的新鞋有多贵。
 
9. 褶皱
确保你穿的衣服平平整整没有褶皱。没有什么比一件看起来像是被用来当枕头使过的衣服更煞风景了。
 
 
“风格就是明明知道自己是谁,自己说什么,但却毫不在乎这些。”—— 奥逊·威尔斯
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Around Town
 
 
Being a classy Chinese lady who keeps her cool shouldn't be something you just turn on at networking events and glitzy dinners – it should be a lifestyle. It's easy to be courteous to people you want to impress or who you need something from. What distinguishes class from creep is the ability to be accommodating to everyone, from waiters to business associates to cleaners to kings. As Morrissey says 'It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes strength to be gentle and kind'. And this is what everyone should aim for.
 
 
Showing respect and etiquette around town doesn't mean being a pushover or letting everyone in front of you in the queue until the store closes. It means doing little things that aren't really that difficult but which can make everyone's life easier.
 
 
Transport
1. Let everyone off the metro/bus/boat before you get on to avoid having to push and shove your way in.
2. Always offer your seat to someone who may need it, particularly those with special needs, pregnant women, the elderly and those with children. Nothing screams unattractive and uncaring more than a girl sitting down when someone clearly needs the space – no matter how beautiful you are or good your posture.
3. Use earphones when on public transport. You might care about what happens in the latest episode of your favourite soap but, honestly, nobody else does. The same goes for games on your phone. Either plug it in or turn the sound off.
4. Similarly, if you need to talk on the phone – or even to someone next to you – keep it down. 
5. If notice yourself breaking any of these rules, remember to apologize.
 
 
In Town
1. Stand on the right hand side of the escalator so people in a rush can get past easily (this is common in many places, including Hong Kong, where standing on the left can be considered extremely rude).
2. Hold doors open for people behind you. If someone does this for you, smile and say thank you.
3. Be polite to those working in the service industry. Don't shoot the messenger if things aren't going your way. Say thank you after a transaction NOTE: In some places, particularly English speaking countries, it is quite normal for people to say thank you five or six times in the course of paying for something.
 
 
作为一名经典的中国女人,保持优雅的一面不应当仅仅在社交场合和晚宴上展示,这应当是你的日常生活风格。对于你看重的人,或者你有所相求的人彬彬有礼相对容易。然而高下立断就看一个人如何对待他周围的人,包括从服务员,清洁工,到商业同行,和一国之首。墨里西曾说“笑容易,恨容易,要做到彬彬有礼却得花大力气。”这就是人人都要努力追求的境界。
 
 
尊重他人,礼貌待人并不意味着就做一个软柿子,对每一个排在你身后的人都礼让三先直到商店关门,而是意味着做一些力所能及的事,从而使这个世界更加美好。
 
交通礼仪
1. 先下后上,避免挤挤抗抗。
2. 把位置让给可能有需要的人,特别是孕妇,老人和抱小孩的乘客。占着座位不让给有需要的人,没有什么行为比这更能让一个女孩顿失优雅与智慧了,不管她多漂亮,占座的姿势多美丽。
3. 在公共交通上要戴耳机。你也许对你最爱的肥皂剧更新到第几集很感兴趣,但是,实话说别人就不一定关心。同样在手机上玩游戏也是一样的。要么戴耳机要么把声音调小。
4. 同样,如果对着手机说话,或者对着邻座说话,请小声点。
5. 如果发觉自己破坏了什么规矩,请道歉。
 
 
 
城市礼节
1. 乘扶梯时靠右站,以便赶时间的人能从左边顺利通过扶梯。(这一点在多数地方都适用,包括香港,站在右边会被认为非常没有礼貌。)
2. 为身后的人扶一下门。如果有人这样为你做,请报以微笑,并说声谢谢。
3. 对待服务行业的人要礼貌。如果服务有些慢请不要对大声呼喊。在交易结束后请道谢。在许多说英语国家,在结账时说个四五遍谢谢是非常正常的。
 
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Overcoming Jealousy
 
 
Jealousy is a universal feeling few people ever want to admit to having, whether it is sibling, coworker, partner, celebrity, book character, etc.
 
 
Breathe and think about why you feel jealous. Don’t be hard on yourself. Jealousy is normal. If you have just gone through a bad divorce and your friend is gushing about how her boyfriend has proposed to her, of course you don’t want to hear about it. Smile politely and don’t be negative. Try to change the subject.
 
 
Consider being jealous of someone else’s achievements the motivation you need to improve yourself. When someone else is successful, think about your own goals and try to work hard to achieve them. It’s never too late to take a shot.
 
 
Chances are the person you’re jealous of isn’t that great either. Everyone has their own problems. Sure, Maria might have a cool car but mosquitoes think she’s the second coming. Nobody has a perfect life. 
 
 
On the flip side, don’t try to inspire jealousy in others. Be humble. Bragging about success over and over and over and over again is no fun for anyone. After all, people who are jealous of you are going to find it much harder to like you. 
 
 
嫉妒心是一个人们普遍不愿承认自己有的普遍心理。对于不论是兄弟姐妹,同事,伙伴,名人,抑或是一本书中的人物,嫉妒心理都是人之常情。
 
 
深呼吸,想想为什么自己会觉得嫉妒。不要跟自己过意不去。嫉妒心也是正常的心理。如果当你刚刚很不愉快地离了婚,而你的朋友却在一边一直滔滔不绝地讲她男朋友是如何向她求婚的,当然你现在没心情听这个,但是礼貌地微笑,态度不要消极,试试换个话题吧。
 
 
要把对他人成绩的嫉妒看作是提高自己的动力。当看见其他人成功了,想想你自己的目标,加倍努力实现它吧。现在开始努力,为时不晚。
 
 
不过幸好我们嫉妒的人都不是一点瑕疵都没有的。每个人都有自己的问题。当然,玛利亚也许有一辆炫酷的车,但是蚊子们却把她当成了它们的救世主。没有人的生活是完美的。
 
 
反而言之,千万不能去挑拨别人的嫉妒心。谦虚一点。在任何人面前一遍遍不停地吹嘘自己的成功都很令人讨厌。总之,嫉妒你的人很难喜欢你。
 
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Unpleasant Situations
 
 
You may never like everyone: Amy will always laugh a little too loudly and Dan just says the word ‘typical’ too much. You can avoid wanting to have lunch with them as much as you like but disliking someone doesn’t mean having to be rude to them. Particularly in the workplace, avoiding conflict and dealing with problems in a private, sensitive manner, is best for everyone.
 
Tips
-Avoid rivalries
-Don’t gossip
-Control you temper
-Treat people fairly
 
 
That said, sometimes you simply have to stand up for yourself, for your ethics or on someone else’s behalf. People can push it too far sometimes and you have to do something about it. Remember, it’s okay to be the person in the room who refuses to go along with everyone else if you have a good reason not to. History books are filled by the stories of people who went against the majority.
 
Unpleasant situations come in many forms – complaining about someone’s behaviour, having to reject an invitation, spending time with people you don’t want to. With a calm demeanour and a willingness to comprise these things can turn out much better than you spent all night thinking it would.
 
When dealing with an unpleasant situation, it’s important to take a step back and think. Sleep on it if you must. Sometimes it might be better to pick your battles. Yes, that’s terribly unfair advice but the world isn’t always fair. Accusing someone of bad conduct – even if they did it – can reflect badly on you, and if it’s an employer you are risking your job. Only you can decide whether the issue is important enough.
 
 
-Stay calm. She who shouts loses. 
-Air any grievances in private. Confronting your mother-in-law about stealing your cutlery in front of the entire family is not going to work.
-For work related problems, it may be acceptable to sue the coward’s weapon: email. In most situations not confronting someone directly is seen badly, but certain cases it is useful to leave a paper trail. 
-If you’re in the wrong, apologize – and mean it.
-Come prepared with a solution. It’s easy to moan about problems. But they’re more likely to get solved if you come with an idea.
 
Don’t
-Spread gossip about the person. Be respectful.
-Rolls your eyes or shake your head.
-If you agree to a compromise then you have to agree to it. If in doubt, ask for a little time to think before accepting.
 
If you’re the one being complained about or confronted be courteous and listen to what the other person is saying. Don’t be too defensive and try to talk through the problem together.
 
International Tip
In Chinese culture it is considered okay to smile in an uncomfortable situation. However, in many western countries this is thought to be incredibly rude as people will think you are not taking the issue seriously.
 
 
不是每个人都是你所喜欢的:艾米总是笑声太大,丹总是爱说“典型的”。你可以不和他们一起吃午饭,但是不喜欢不代表就可以对人粗鲁。特别是在办公室,避免冲突,私下解决问题总归是一种合适的态度。
 
小贴士
-避免树立对手
-不造谣生非
-控制情绪
-公平待人
 
 
有人说,有些时候你必须为自己,为你的良知,或者为他人而站出来。当有些人有的时候做得太过分的时候,我们就不得不做一些事情。请牢记,当你有充分理由拒绝顺从,你就可以拒绝。历史书上到处是与多数人为敌的人的传奇故事。
 
不愉快的情况各有各的不同——抱怨他人的行为,不得不拒绝一个邀请,和讨厌的人在一块等等。用平和的心态和积极妥协的态度来处理问题,比自己为一件事纠结一晚上更好。
 
当处理不愉快的时候,重要的是能够退一步想想。如有必要,可以考虑一天再做决定。不过有时选择迎接挑战会是更好的办法。的确,这是个非常不公平的建议,然而这个世界从来就是不公平的。指责别人的坏行为,也会对自己造成坏的影响,如果你是个职员,那么你就是在拿自己的工作来冒险。不过也只有你自己才能决定什么重要什么不重要。
 
 
-保持冷静。善战者不怒。
-所有不平私下解决。当着全家的面揭发岳母偷你东西并不体面。
-对于工作问题,利用懦夫的工具Email也许可以令人接受。大多数情况下,不敢面对面解决问题都是不和时宜的,然而有些问题只要修书一封还是挺管用的。
-如果你错了,请道歉——发自内心地。
-有备而来。谁都会抱怨,但是带着解决方案过来,结果就会大不一样。
 
 
不要:
-散布谣言,要尊重人。
-翻白眼,摇头。
-如果你同意妥协,那就妥协。如果有所迟疑,想想再做决定。
 
如果有其他人向你抱怨,那就有礼貌地听他说。不要过度的防卫,或者与之争论是非。
 
跨文化的小贴士
中国文化里,在不愉快的场景下微笑是可以被接受的。然而,在许多西方国家,这被看作是极端的粗鲁,其他人会觉得你对待问题非常不认真。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool&Chinese|How to Say No
 
 
In contemporary China, full of attractions, entertainment, lust, luxury products and possibilities blossom, 4 reasons you may be avoiding saying ‘no’ to something:
 
 
1. Wanting to help-You are a nice person! You don’t want to let a friend down! However what you need to realize is that not being able to do something for someone when you have a good reason does not make you a bad friend. If they think that then they don’t deserve your friendship anyway!
 
 
2. Afraid of being rude-A fear of rudeness is a common reason to not put your foot down to something that you otherwise wouldn’t do. However this is a contrived social etiquette rule. You shouldn’t end up getting yourself into an uncomfortable situation because you were too polite to say no. 
 
 
3. Fear of conflict-If you are one of those people who shies away from conflict you may find yourself agreeing with something that doesn’t suit you just to avoid an argument. However, by doing this you aren’t being fair to yourself. This is something you are just going to have to get over to make yourself happier in the end.
 
 
4. Fear of lost opportunities-You may fear that if you say no to something now, the opportunity will never come around again and you will miss out. However, if the time isn’t right for you to take something don’t take it. An opportunity will be ruined more by you being overwhelmed at having accepted something you should have said no to, than if you simply declined to accept. 
 
 
5 Scripted out ways for you to say ‘No’: 
 
1. “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
This is one example of a perfectly polite decline. It doesn’t sound like you are ungrateful or rude, it simply sounds like you have too much on your plate to be committing to something else. 
 
 
2. “Now is not a good time. How about we reconnect at ______ time?”
This is a perfect way to politely turn down plan propositions from a friend. It shows that you are still interested in the idea, you just need to find a time that works better.
 
 
3. “I’d love to do this but…”
This response shows enthusiasm in the offer while making it clear that you simply can’t do something. 
 
 
4. “I’m not the best person to help you with this. Why don’t you try______?”
This statement offers a solution to the questioner’s problem while making it clear that it isn’t for you.
 
 
5. “I’m sorry, I can’t”
Even if you aren’t sorry that you can’t do something, you should make it sound as though you were interested so as not to add insult to injury and risk offending the questioner.
 
 
怎样礼貌地说不”
 
在现代的中国,到处充斥着诱惑,愉悦,欲望,奢侈品和各种可能性:
 
1. 想帮助他人:你是个好人!你不想让你的朋友失望!然而你需要知道,不能够为一些人做某些事,并不代表着你就是个坏朋友。如果他们认为你是坏朋友,那么他们就不配你对他们的友情。
 
2. 担心自己显得粗鲁:担心自己显得粗鲁,是一个勉强自己做不能做的事情的普遍理由。虽然这是一条勉强的社交礼仪规则。你不能因自己过渡礼貌而使自己陷入两难之地。
 
3. 害怕与人争论:如果你是那种羞于与人争执的人,你会发现仅仅是为了不与人争执,你会勉为其难地做着各种事情。然而,做这些东西对你来说并不公平。这就是你需要克服的东西,以使自己有一个安心的结局。
 
4. 担心失去机会:你可能会担心如果你对一些事说不,机会就会稍纵即逝。然而,如果时机不对请不要索取。一个应该拒绝的机会也有可能因为你的接受而得不偿失。
 
 
说“不”的五个演示台词:
 
1. “我恐怕不能够做这件事,因为我现在刚好有一些要紧的事。”
这是一个很完美的礼貌拒绝人的例子。而且也不会使自己显得很不领情或者很粗鲁,只是听起来你有太多的事情需要处理。
 
2. “现在可能时间不太合适。你觉得我们换一个时间怎么样?”
这也是一个礼貌拒绝朋友的提议的好方法。这句话表现出你对朋友的提议仍然感兴趣,只是你需要找个更合适的时间。
 
3. “我非常乐意,但是…”
这个回答即表达了你对提议的热情,又很清楚地表明你只是办不到这件事。
 
4. “我还不是最适合帮你这个忙的人选,你可以试试某某?”
这个说法不但给提问者提供了解决方案,而且清楚地表明你不适合做这件事。
 
5. “很抱歉,我做不到。”
即使你真的不会因为办不到某事而感到抱歉,也要尽量使自己看起来并不想雪上加霜,或者冒犯提问者。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool&Chinese|Staying Calm
 
Constance Jablonski ©Greg Kadel
 
Staying calm in a stressful or aggravating situation is exceedingly difficult but extremely important. Losing your temper never helps a situation, often results in repercussions and will definitely affect the way other people see you. With all these downsides why is it still so hard to keep your cool? Especially in China, where you come across yelling taxi drivers and other mundane irritations on a daily basis.
 
Here are several ways to stay calm in a long or short time perspective:
 
Staying calm through long-term stress: Everyone in the world goes through periods of time where they are feeling overworked, overwhelmed or simply burned out. Learning to deal with this type of situations is more important and more difficult than dealing with short-term stressors. Here are 10 tips to help you overcome long-term stress in the big Chinese cities
 
1. Avoid drinking beverages high in caffeine
2. Lighting a candle with a soothing scent like lavender or cinnamon has a calming effect
3. Start reading an amusing book
4. Choose the un-caffeinated or herbal tea
5. Do not spend too much time with your pet indoors: going out for some fresh air and engaging with nature is a better option.
6. Start a journal to organize your thoughts
7. Practice yoga more
8. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and take a power nap when you can
9. Join a gym-the endorphins released when exercising will help to combat stress
10. Try meditation or sitting down for 15 minutes a day and just thinking about something nice, make peace with the past and your foes.
 
Staying calm in the moment: Dealing with an aggravating situation like a calm adult is a very useful skill to have. Here are 9 tips to help you avoid losing your temper with a high-speed modern lifestyle in the big Chinese cities:
 
1. Take three, slow, deep breaths
2. Count backwards in your head from ten to one.
3. Ask yourself ‘Will this argument solve anything?’ ‘What is the best possible outcome of this argument for both participants? 'How can we get there?’
4. Find a quote that means something to you and think of it in a stressful moment
5. Avoid using sarcasm or making unnecessary jokes of the situation
6. If what you want to say won’t directly improve or solve the situation, don’t say it
7. Think before you speak
8. Don’t ever raise your voice even if the person you are speaking to does
9. If there is no way around it, remove yourself from the situation before you say something you won’t be able to take back

在充满压力和高度紧张的情况下保持冷静是极度困难且非常重要的。脾气失控并不能对情况有所帮助,并常常会起到反作用,而且绝对会影响别人对你的看法。有这么多的副作用为什么还是难以保持冷静呢?尤其是在中国,当你遇到一个大吼大叫的出租车司机和日常其他的烦恼。
 
以下是针对长期与短期情况的使自己冷静的方式:
 
在长期压力的情况下保持冷静:世界上每个人都会有经历感觉劳累,不堪重负或者精疲力尽的时期。学习如何处理这种类型的情况非常重要,并且比处理短期压力的难度更大。这里有10个提示,帮助你在中国的一些大城市里克服长期的压力:
 
1. 避免喝含咖啡因的茶或饮品。
2. 点燃一支熏衣草香或者肉桂香味的蜡烛会有保持镇静的效果。
3. 读一本有趣的书。
4. 喝不含咖啡因的茶,比如草本类的茶
5. 不要和自己的宠物整天待在一起,出去转转,呼吸新鲜空气,亲近大自然。
6. 开始一段旅程,或者整理一下你的思绪。
7. 多上一些瑜伽课。
8. 保证足够的睡眠,如果可以,小憩一下。
9. 参与体育运动,内啡肽的分泌能帮助对抗压力。
10. 尝试冥想,或者每天坐下15分钟想一想美好的事情,与你的过去和敌人达成和解。
 
在应激情况下保持冷静:在紧急的情况下像个成年人一样冷静是一种非常有用的技能。这里有9个提示,帮助你在面对当下中国大城市的快节奏生活时,避免情绪失控:
 
1. 数三下,慢下来,深呼吸。
2. 在脑海里从10数到1.
3. 问问自己“争论可以解决问题吗?”,然后“对于争论双方来说什么是最好的结果,以及我们如何达成?”
4. 找到一句对自己来说意味着些什么的名言,在紧张情况下默念一下。
5. 在紧张情况下,尽量不要讽刺和开不必要的玩笑。
6. 如果你想说的不能直接弥补或解决当前情况,那就不要说。
7. 三思而后言。
8. 不要提高音调,即使跟你说话的人已经这样做了。
9. 如果没有办法打圆场,在说错话覆水难收之前离开。

1. Examine your personal beliefs and attitudes about religion, ethnicity, culture and even politics. By looking at yourself you will be able to pinpoint where your opinion may differ from other people from your country or a foreigner. If you are truly concerned about clashes of opinion and cultural differences, try to steer any conversations away from topics you feel may cause a rift.
 
2. Educate yourself. While this should be true of anyone regardless of the company you keep, it is especially important when dealing with an international community. Stay up to date on world news and politics. Know which topics may be touchy for some and understand the differences between different religions and beliefs. Keep yourself in the know so you never end up sounding like you have no clue what you are talking about when trying to.
 
3. Identify your personal style of communication and consider how this may come across to someone from a different country. Likewise, stay alert to those who don’t understand you. For example, if you find that you often make jokes to lighten up a tense situation, consider that many people may consider this rude and think that you are not taking it seriously.
 
4. Adapting: one suggestion to dealing with someone who is speaking to you in their second language is to learn the so called-‘second degree’. By examining your own style of communications you will be able to more accurately work through any misunderstandings that arise.
 
5. Avoid stereotyping: While you may assume you know how to communicate with someone based on what you have heard about them, make sure you aren’t putting a person into a stereotype that doesn’t fit them. It is very important to get to know people individually rather than basing how you interact with them off of preconceived notions.
 
6. Don’t be afraid to ask questions: You should know that, any foreigner living in another country is used to being asked questions about where they come from. In fact most would prefer someone ask about something they are unsure of, rather than say something tasteless.
 
7. Don’t be overly critical if you find something strange: Being a part of an international community means you need to have an open mind. Look at things that are different with a sense of humor rather than with judgment.
 
8. Be relaxed: Don’t stress it too much. It will make people /colleagues uncomfortable if you are freaking out about talking to them. Keep it light!
 
9. Accept that mistakes will happen and learn from them: There is no set script on how to learn to interact with someone from the same country or a different country. All you can do is be open and friendly and see where it goes.

通常文化差异是一个棘手的问题,特别是在工作环境中。沟通误解很常见,无知或者无味意外出现的风险也非常高。特别是在中国,随着经济的发展,外国人群体迅速地增长,所以,对于如何解决在当下中国可能会发生的问题,保持开放的思想和理解力是非常重要的。下面是如何在中国的国际环境下表达自己的9条建议。
 
1.审视自己关于宗教,种族,文化甚至政治的个人信仰和态度。通过审视自己,你就会发现这些观点你与其他人或外国人是相左的。如果你真的在乎观点的碰撞和文化的差异,请试着把有可能导致不愉快的话题引向别处。
 
2. 自我学习:这应该是一个放之四海而皆有的能力,特别是在与国际化的群体打交道的时候。保持对世界新闻与时事的知悉是必要的。知道什么话题对于哪些人来说是敏感的,并了解不同宗教和信仰之间的不同。保持知悉,以避免在和人聊天的时候自己一问三不知。
 
3.认知自己的沟通风格,并在与其他不同国家的人交流的时候顾及他们的感受。同样地,也要注意不能很好理解你的表达方式的人。比如,如果你发现自己经常用玩笑来化解僵局,那么你就要考虑有些人会觉得你的做法轻率,不严肃。
 
4.自适应:当和你说话的人使用的是他们的第二语言,他们也许并不能理解你的第二层意思,学会所谓的“第二学位”。通过审视自己的交流风格,你就能更准确地解决各种沟通中所发生的误解。
 
5. 避免刻板印象:也许通过对一些人的道听途说的了解,你会认为自己知道如何跟这些人沟通。但是我们要确保我们没有为有些人安上一些并不符合他们的刻板印象。重要的是要从个体的角度来理解一个人,而不是带着先入为主的观念来与他们接触。
 
6.不要害怕问问题:你应该知道,任何一个在其他国家居住的外国人都习惯于别人问关于他们从哪里来的问题。事实上相比那些无趣的固定问题,很多人更喜欢被问到一些他们也不确定的问题。
 
7. 如果发现一些奇怪的事情,不要过分苛责:作为国际群体的必要条件之一就是,保持开放的思想。带着一些幽默感来看待事情比过多的评判更好。
 
8. 放松:不要太过于紧张。如果急匆匆地和他们说话,这样会使得身边的人或同事感到有压力。试着放轻松一些。
 
9. 接受可能会发生的错误,并从中吸取经验:关于如何与相同或不同国家的人互动,并没有固定的脚本来学习。所有我们能做的就是保持开放而友好的心态,并善于去观察和学习。

ETIQUETTE | Introducing
 
YiZhou by YiZhouStudio
 
With the things a girl has to deal with these days – boyfriends, manicures, careers and parties. It's no wonder that sometimes all we want to do is curl up in bed with some chocolate, a glass of wine and a good book. Navigating the various situations we find ourselves in can be a challenge, yet that challenge can be made all the more easy with a few tips and tricks. 'Cool and Chinese' is here to tell you not only why you should be out enjoying yourself but also how. From etiquette to sun cream, gala dinners to breaking up, 'Cool and Chinese' is the guide by TheMaker every sophisticated woman needs, in order to help her conduct herself in any situation, while staying true to her contemporary Chinese lifestyle.
 
想象一下,一个女孩在一天所要面对的这些事情——男朋友、美甲、工作和派对——你就能理解,为什么有时候我们宁愿蜷缩在床上,来一些巧克力就着一杯红酒,去阅读一本好书。如何在每一种自己所身处的场合里如鱼得水,对我们来说都会是一个挑战。然而,如果有适当的窍门和技巧,面对挑战我们就会变得游刃有余。在这里,COOL & CHINESE这个栏目不仅仅告诉你为什么要走出闺房享受生活,并且告诉你该怎样做。从礼仪,到涂抹防晒霜,从参加晚宴,到结束晚宴,这本书以当代中国为背景,作为每一位精致女人的指南,帮助她们在每一个场合更好地表现自己。
 
 
WHAT IS ETIQUETTE
 
Your mother did (or did not) teach you etiquette for a reason. That reason was that she wanted you (or didn't want you) to be a lady. Etiquette teaches you to sit up straight, not because it's traditional or normal but because good posture is more attractive. Etiquette not only teaches contemporary Chinese individuals to use a knife and fork and not because it's an old-fashioned western way, but because you can't shake hands with someone at a gala dinner if your fingers are covered in soy sauce.
 
You can be, or you can aspire to be as rich, famous or powerful as you like. But if you eat like a pig and are rude to others, you won't gain the respect from your peers, or people you meet. Grace, elegance and pleasing manners are attainable for all and something everyone should learn to have.

什么是礼仪?
 
我们的妈妈教过(或没有教过)我们礼仪皆因一种原因,那就是她想(或不想)让你成为一位淑女。“礼仪”教导你的坐姿身体要挺直,不仅仅因为这是传统或正式的方法,是因为这样好的姿态能让你更具魅力。“礼仪”不光是教当代中国人如何使用刀叉——这已经是非常传统过时的西式礼仪。而更多的是一些生活化的细节,比方说当你参加一个晚宴时手上沾满了酱汁,你便不能与其他人握手。
 
你可以是有钱有名有势的,或者你渴望成为这样的人。但是如果你与他人一起吃饭时狼吞虎咽,这在别人面前是很粗鲁的行为,那么你就不可能得到对方的尊敬。优雅,得体以及悦人的行为举止对于所有人来说是都可以做到的,也是每个人都需要去学习的。

Everyday brushes
 
Synthetic Bristle Brush: 
This brush is great for those of you with thicker hair. The synthetic bristles will help to detangle without causing frizz from static. Girls with thinner hair may find that this type of brush leaves their strands dry and dull looking. 
 
Natural Bristle Brush: 
As opposed to the last one, this brush is ideal for girls with thinner, straighter hair.  The natural bristles, which are usually made form Boar bristles help to spread the natural oils of your hair out evenly, keeping your hair looking full and shiny. 
 
Mixed Bristle Brush:
This brush is what you will find most stylists using as it contains the best aspects of both of the previous brushes. 
 
Paddle Brushes: 
This brush is very similar to the Synthetic Bristle Brush but much wider and sturdier. If you have very thick or very big hair you may find that you pull the bristles right out of a normal Synthetic Bristle Brush. If that is the case, the paddle brush is perfect for you!
Styling Brushes:
 
Vented Brushes: 
These thin brushes with holes in the center are great for blow-drying thinner hair. Using an everyday brush will add a lot of time to the blow drying whereas a vented brush is made to allow your hair to dry as quickly as possible.
 
Round Brush: 
Great for girls with naturally wavy hair who are fond of the blowout look.  This brush will shape a gently curling blowout without needing to visit a salon.
 
Teasing Brush: 
This small brush is used to give you hair a little extra volume by actually tangling it. Teasing brushes work equally well on any hair type though the tease itself will stay much better in hair with a bit of natural volume than straight hair. 
 
Rattail Comb: 
The pointed end of this comb is perfect for separating hair in even sections with straight lines or adjusting your natural part. Stylists will usually use tis comb when doing braids to ensure that the sections are even and the parts are all straight. 
 
Wide Tooth Comb: 
Many girls with thick, curly hair find that they cannot brush their hair after it dries or they end up with a gigantic pile of frizz on their head. For you the wide tooth comb is the perfect middle ground. Using a brush on wet hair can be damaging but the wide-toothed comb will be gentle while detangling and allow you to avoid the frizz-fest later. 
 
Like with skin, girls often find that their hair often ends up looking dry, which looks frizzy and dull, oily, which never looks clean or maybe even a mixture depending on the day.  What you need to do is get to know your hair. Take note of the days that it is greasy and what you did to clean it that morning and adjust the amount of products you use.

Here are some tips for different types of hair:
 
Oily Hair:
-Make sure your shampoos and conditioners are meant for the thickness of your hair. If you are using a thick-hair conditioner on thin hair it will add to the oiliness. 
-Try cleaning your hair every other day rather than every day. Contrary to popular belief, the oil glands in your scalp are triggered by massages, making frequent and rough shampooing likely to make your hair look dirtier and greasier rather than cleaner.
-Use the flats of your fingers when applying shampoo rather than nails for a gentler clean.
 
Dry Hair:
-Make sure you aren’t coloring your hair too frequently. Dyes will eventually lead to dry and brittle hair. 
-Look for moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. 
-Try deep conditioning your hair once a week.
-If you plan on being in the sun for long periods of time, like a beach trip or hike, try using a leave in moisturizing product.
 
Fine/Thin Hair:
-Never condition the roots of your hair; this will lead to a greasy look.
-Avoid getting layered hair cuts as this will only emphasize the thinness of your hair at the ends.
-Don’t let your hair grow to long as it will appear stringy and thin.
-Thin hair tends to split much more easily than thick hair so make sure you are getting frequent hair cuts to keep the ends looking healthy.
 
Thick Hair:
-People with thick hair often complain of itchy dry scalps. This is usually caused by shampoo residue not being washed completely off your head. Make sure you are rinsing your scalp very thoroughly to avoid this.
-Layered cuts will hide some of the bulk of your hair.
-When coloring your hair opt for semi-permanent dyes, as permanent ones often thicken hair, making thick hair less manageable and bigger.
 
Curly Hair:
- Curly hair tends to dry out quickly and because of the uneven surfaces, often looks dull rather than shiny and healthy. Make sure you are using moisturizing shampoo to help combat this.
-Use a wide-toothed comb on wet hair after showering to avoid the frizz that often follows dry brushing.
-Rather than using a blow drying which will separate your curls making it frizzy, pat your hair dry with a thick absorbing towel or let it air dry.
Straight Hair:
-Straight hair hangs right against the scalp often making it oily. Try using deep cleaning conditioners to avoid the greasy appearance.
-Using a clarifying gel treatment once a week will keep your hair looking full rather than sparse or thin.
-Make sure you aren’t over conditioning your hair. 
 
Ideal amounts of Shampoo and Conditioner:
Most people are making the mistake of using too much shampoo and/or conditioner. Ideally with shampoo, people with shoulder-length hair are recommended to use a small amount, about the size of a 1RMB coin. However you will need to adjust slightly if your hair is longer or shorter. With conditioner use a slightly smaller amount than you do with shampoo and leave it in for 3-5 minutes before rinsing it gently.

每日梳理:
 
合成毛刷:
这种刷子对那些头发浓密的人来说很好。合成刷毛将有助于把头发理顺。头发较薄的女孩可能会发现这种刷子会让她们的头发干燥而暗淡.。
 
天然毛刷:
和前者相反,这种刷子更适合头发更薄更直的女孩子,天然毛刷的毛通常来自野猪的鬃毛,可以让你头发上的天然油脂分布更加均匀,让你的头发看上去饱满而有光泽。
 
混合毛刷:
这种毛刷结合了前两者的共同优点。
 
桨状梳子:
这种数字和合成毛刷很像,但是更加宽大,如果你的头发很厚造型很大,你会发现你的头发会把毛刷上的毛带下来。在这种情况下桨状梳子就很适合你。
 
排刷:
这种中间有孔的梳子很适合需要吹干的薄头发。用普通梳子吹头发会消耗大量时间,而排刷就是专门为了尽快吹干头发而准备的。
 
圆梳:
天然卷的女孩很适合用这种梳子。这种梳子可以在不去美发沙龙的情况下做出柔顺的卷发。
 
梳理刷:
这种小刷子可以通过给头发打结来制造蓬松感。梳理刷在任何类型的头发上都能够很好地发挥作用,当然,如果用在天然蓬松的头发上就更好了。
 
鼠尾梳:
这种有尖端的梳子能够很好地把头发自然分散开。造型师一般用这种梳子来确保各部分头发之间的均衡和笔直。
 
宽齿梳:
很多有着又厚又卷的头发的女孩子会发现头发在干了之后很难梳,或者是头发变成了乱糟糟的一团。对于这样的女孩子而言宽齿梳就是最好的选择。对湿头发用梳子可能会损伤发质,但是宽齿梳在梳头的时候非常柔和,可以避免之后头发变得乱糟糟。
 
和皮肤类似,女孩子们经常发现她们的头发看上去干干的,毛糙油腻黯淡无光,看上去一点也不干净,甚至说发质好坏要碰运气。你最需要做的就是了解你的头发。特别要注意在油腻的时候你是如何在早上清洁头发的,而你用了多少清洁产品。
 
Cato Van Ee ©Cuneyt Akeroglu
 
以下是给不同的发质提出的建议:
 
油性发质:
确保你用的洗发水和护理剂和你的头发厚度相匹配。如果你头发比较薄却用了为厚头发准备的定型剂那么你的头发肯定会变油。
试着隔天洗头,而不是天天洗头。和大家通常意识到的相反,头皮分泌油脂是由外界信号影响的,频繁使用粗糙的洗发水会让你的头发看上去越来越脏也越来越油。
用你的指缝涂抹洗发水,而不是用指尖。
 
干性发质:
不要经常染发。染料会让头发变干。
使用有保湿作用的洗发水和护理剂。
试试看每周做一个深度护理。
如果你打算去海滩旅游或者远足这样长时间晒太阳的活动,用一些能够保湿的产品。
 
普通厚度或者较薄的头发:
不要做发根的护理,这样会让头发看上去很油
不要剪分层的发型,这样只会让你的头发看上去更薄。
别把头发留太长,这样显薄。
薄头发比厚头发更容易分叉,所以经常剪头发可以让你的头发看上去更健康。
 
厚头发:
头发厚的人们经常抱怨头皮干燥发痒。这主要由洗发水残留导致。确保你彻底清洗了头皮防止之后的残留问题。
有层次感的造型可以让你的发型看上去不那么大。
染发时使用半永久染料,永久染料会让你的头发看上去更厚更大也更难打理。
 
卷发:
卷发因为有不平整的表面所以干得很快,看上去会比较暗淡、不健康。可以使用有保湿作用的洗发水来防止这种情况的发生。
洗完头之后用宽齿梳,避免头发干的时候梳头造成乱糟糟的情况。
与其用吹风机把头发吹乱不如用干毛巾擦拭头发之后自然风干。
 
直发:
把直发披近头皮通常会让头发变油,所以可以用一些深度清洁的产品。
用一些凝胶护理可以让头发看上去更饱满。
不要过度护理。
 
理想的洗发水和护发素使用量:
大多数人会错误地使用过量的洗发水和护发素。对于齐肩长发的人而言,理想的洗发水量大概和一枚一元硬币差不多。但是你需要根据具体长短来调整用量。护发素的量较洗发水少一些,先将其涂抹在头发上保持三到五分钟之后温和地将其洗去。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Hairstyles Decade by Decade

Popular hairstyles have evolved greatly in the last hundred years. In this chapter we will take a look at the iconic hairstyles of each decade and discuss how they can be adapted and worn today.
 
1910s: If you have ever seen an episode of the popular drama Downton Abbey then you are most likely familiar with the most popular hairstyles of the 1910s. This style is usually defined by elegant but conservative curls, usually pinned up to the side and often decked out with hair combs or ribbons to add to the glamorous look. Today this look can easily be utilized at a more elegant event, giving you an aura of classic, timeless beauty.
 
1920s: In the roaring 20s, the iconic hairstyle that swept through nations was the bob. Until then women prized their long hair, cutting it rarely and usually wearing it at least partly down to show its length. With the burgeoning of the age of Hollywood glamour, many young women began to shuck the long-tresses to opt for the slick bob. Cut to chin length, this style was usually left free to bounce around and it still a popular cut and style today. 
 
1930s: The 1930s continued in favor of the bob length hair, though it did evolved into a slicker more elegant cousin of the 20s style. As Hollywood grew in popularity people began to imitate those looks seen on stars such as Greta Garbo and Bette Davis. Short, light and wavy looks took over. This is one of the few iconic hairstyles that is rarely seen in the fashion world today. To a modern audience it is seen as dated or matronly.
 
1940s: As the recognition and appreciation of Hollywood glamour reached its peak, new hair icons emerged, including Elizabeth Taylor and Ingrid Bergman, and with them came a slightly longer, more coiffed style. Victory rolls, a style where hair is curled around a rod and then pinned into place so that it holds a voluminous, sweeping curling even after the rod is removed, became the height of fashion. Today many hairstyles from the old Hollywood days are utilized both on the red carpet and on runways worldwide.  The style still symbolized the old, timeless glamour of the Hollywood golden ages. 
 
1950s: During the 1950s, short fringed bangs made their first appearances as a popular style. The pin curls, a smaller simpler version of the victory roll, began gaining popularity and hair was usually pinned off the face and out of the way, in this age of modern practicality. This is another era that didn’t last long, and exists today looking more matronly and outdated.
 
1960s: During the 60s women began to burst from the bonds of simple, understated hairstyles. High fashion began to emerge with the rise of Twiggy, considered by most of the world to be the first true supermodel. Suddenly the bigger the hair the more fashionable it was. The bouffant look became the height of fashion among common woman.
 
1970s: The new expressive age of exploration in hairstyles led to the popular feathered look of the 70s. More intricate haircuts emerged and more and more women began relying on the cut of their hair and wearing it down rather than styling it every day, as had been the practice. Layering emerged in hair creating natural volume and coloring began to rise in popularity, especially highlights and lowlights, which color parts of hair to make it appear thicker and varied. Many of the styles that appeared in the 70s are still worn all over the world today.
 
1980s: Curls, curls and more curls defined the iconic 80s look. With the discovery of the perm, a salon style that created small tight curls that lasted a month or two, hair grew in size.  With icons like Diana Ross leading the parade, hair grew bigger and bigger throughout this decade. Today the perm is still a popular look, and is growing more and more fashionable in Asian countries, where hair is naturally straight. 
 
1990s: With high fashion truly blossoming from the everyday looks, the 1990s was defined not by a specific style but by the value of individuality as never before. Hair accessories such as clips and colored scrunchies grew in popularity and while hair did deflate a bit from the 80s fads, color continued to be a game changer.

流行的发型在过去的一百年中变化多样。在这一章我们将带大家走近每个年代标志性的发型,并且讨论它们是如何发展并适应当下时代的。
 
1910s:只要你看过Downton Abbey中的哪怕一个章节,你也会对上世纪初流行的发型非常熟悉。这种发型主要体现在它保守而不失优雅的蜷曲,女性通常会将头发梳到一边或是系上缎带以锦上添花。现在,这样的造型大多会出现在一些高雅的场合,让人体会到一种经典的、超越时空的美。
 
1920s:在上个世纪咆哮的二十年代,波波头是席卷了各个国家的流行风潮。之前女性还是非常爱惜她们的长发,有时候会从发髻中放一些头发出来以显示它们的长度。随着好莱坞风潮的兴起,爱美的女性将她们的目标转向了波波头。这一发型的长度只到脸颊,可以很自由地弹来弹去,直至今日依旧是一种常见的发型。
 
1930s:波波头的流行一直延续到了三十年代,但是它发展成了一种更加优雅的造型。随着好莱坞的崛起,人们开始青睐于Greta Garbo和 Bette Davis这些明星的造型。短而轻盈的卷发似乎占据了主流。这是一种在现今时尚界很少见的发型。对于现在人来说,这未免有些过时了。
 
1940s:当好莱坞的影响力到达巅峰的时候,新发型的风向标也随之而来,包括Elizabeth Taylor 和Ingrid Bergman那种稍长也更整齐的发型。使用卷发棒为头发定型的维多利亚式卷发成为了新潮流。有很多旧时好莱坞流行的发型至今仍可以在明星走红毯或是赶通告的时候看到。这样的造型也标志着好莱坞永不过时的黄金时代。
 
1950s:上个世纪五十年代短刘海第一次做为流行发型出现。一种更简单的维多利亚式卷发,斜卷发,开始流行起来。现在的造型中,这种发型将头发从面前梳到一边。这是另一个没有延续下去的时代,在现在看来显得有些老气。
 
1960s:六十年代的女性突破了保守的传统发型。随着世界公认的首位超模Twiggy的走红,新的流行发型也应运而生。似乎造型越大就越时尚。浮夸的造型成了女性追求的时尚。
 
1970s:七十年代是一个注重自我表达的年代,羽毛般的发型也逐渐流行起来。更复杂的发型出现,越来越多的女性开始对自己的头发进行切割而非像过去一样定型。头发自然卷,并分层着色开始盛行,特别是其中的明暗交替,着色部分的头发使发型显得厚实多彩。许多出现在七十年代的款式至今仍遍布世界各地.。
 
1980s:铺天盖地的卷发定义了标志性的八十年代外观。随着烫发的出现,能够维持一两个月的紧密卷发也就是所谓的沙龙风格,开始流行。Diana Ross引领了这股风潮。而在这十年里,头发变得越来越大。今天烫发仍然流行,并且在大多数人都是天然直发的亚洲国家越发流行。
 
1990s:二十世纪九十年代,随着高度的时尚从日常生活中真正绽放出来,这个年代的定义不是一种特定的风格,而是一种前所未有的个性价值。发夹发箍这样用在头发上的配件越发普及,发型也较八十年代更加时尚,而颜色仍然起着主导作用。

The topic of hairstyles is very broad. It will differ with everyone. What hairstyles will work with different length hair? Which hairstyles will work better in curly hair or straight hair? Which hairstyles will frame which face shape better? (For more on the last see the chapter on Face Shapes)
 
In this section we will go over some of the most common hairstyles, and how to glam them up for any occasion.
 
Ponytail
The ponytail is probably the most common and easiest ‘hairstyle to accomplish’. The pony tail simply involves pulling all of your hair back and tying it in a tail at the back of your head.
Some tips for a better ponytail:
Pony with Volume- If you have thin hair, place two bobby pins underneath the base of your ponytail pointing up. This will lift the hair, creating volume, rather than letting your hair drop straight down.
Pony with Twist-If you want to make your pony tail look more elegant, create a hole in your hair near the base of your head before the elastic. Pull the ends of your tail through the hole creating a twist and adding a bit of class to this classic.
Classic Classy Pony-If you hate the site of a colored elastic holding your hair up, take a small lock of hair from your pony. Wrap the lock, not too tightly, around the elastic, covering it completely. Secure the lock with a bobby pin pushed through the elastic.
Remember, a ponytail is a very versatile hairstyle!  It can be placed high or low depending on the look you are going for.  Play around with your own hair a bit。 What kind of ponytail suits you best?
 
Jaden Smith, from ins @c.syresmith
 
Bun
Buns, similar to pony, the bun involves pulling all your hair back into a single elastic. However instead of letting your hair fall from there, the bun involves wrapping or bunching your hair up close to your haid.
Messy Bun-This style works best for ladies with curly or wavy hair. It is also a great style for the day after you showered, because it tends to hold better if your hair is a bit dirty.  If you have shorter hair all you need to do is pretend to make a ponytail, but instead of pulling your hair all the way through, keep the ends tucked into the elastic as you wrap it. For those with longer hair, twist all your hair together in a long rope above your head. Loosely wrap the rope around itself close to your scalp and secure it with either pins or a hair elastic.  Don’t worry about having some fly-away pieces. This is part of the messy bun’s allure. 
Ballet Bun-For a sleeker more composed look, the ballet bun may be the ideal look for you.  To do this, brush all your hair back into a slick, high, pony tail and secure it tightly with a hair elastic. Twist all hair from elastic to end and begin to tightly wrap it around itself.  Every couple of centimeters, slide a bobby pin through the twist, with the end going under the elastic, holding it in place and making it so the pins do not show. Tuck the end securely underneath itself and pin.
 
Braids
Another very common hairstyle is the braid, or multiple braids.  There are two major types of braids, the French braid, which starts with small pieces of hair and moves along your head, gathering hair as it goes, and the ‘pigtail’ style braid which begins with all of the hair involved and is braided out, away from your scalp. There are many interesting braid additions to add to a hairdo to make it really pop such as:
Ponytail with Braid- Sweep most of your hair into a mid-height ponytail excluding a spot in the bangs area. With this piece you will make a loose French braid, continue when all the hair has been added and sweep it around the side of your head. Loosely wrap the end of the braid around your hair elastic and secure it with a pin.\
Braided Bun-This style is very similar to the ballet bun describe earlier. Instead of twisting the hair up from the pony tail, braid it away from your head until the end.  Then wrap the hair the same way you would with the ballet bun and secure it with pins. This creates a knotted looking ballet bun that adds elegance to any style. 
Milkmaid Braids-This hairdo can be adapted to nearly any hair type.  However it is much easier if you have longer hair.  To start make two braids, either French or ‘pigtail’ style.  If you chose French, make sure they are not too tight to your head, this hairstyle should look loose and messy when finished.  With French braids, take the ends of your braids and wrap them down and around your head, crossing them and pinning them to the top of your head, near your crown.  With pigtail braids, pull them from the sides up behind your ears and pin them at your crown. Pull out small pieces of hair to hang around your face and enjoy this simple, earthy up do.

凌乱的发髻,这种风格最适合女士卷发或卷发的女性。你沐浴后这将是一个很不错的发型,因为它往往拥有更好的如果你的头发有点脏的话。如果你有短的头发你就假装做一个马尾辫,但不是拉直你的头发,使两端卷起用橡皮筋扎好。对于那些有较长的头发,你的头发用一根长皮筋缠绕在你的头上。松散地缠绕这,靠近你的头皮,并用一个发卡或一个头发发饰扎好。不要担心有一些散碎的头发。这是凌乱的头发诱惑的一部分。
芭蕾发髻 如果想更时尚,芭蕾包可能是你理想中的选择。要做到这一点,把你的头发刷成一个光滑的,高,小马尾巴,并确保它紧紧地与头发贴紧。缠扎起所有的头发,从弹性到结束,并开始紧紧缠绕扎好。每隔几厘米,滑动发夹缠绕,最终用橡皮扎好,保持它在的地方,用发卡让它不显示出来。把底端牢牢地固定在自己头发后。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Eyebrows
 
 
Eyebrows, while necessary for facial recognition, may be some of the most often forgotten parts of the face when it comes to dressing up. While it may seem high maintenance to try to tame or fluff your eyebrows, unkempt eyebrows can often ruin an entire look, giving the impression of sloppiness or lack of caring.  
 
Eyebrows have a lifespan of about 4 months. This means that in this time each hair in your eyebrows will fall out and re-grow.
 
What your eyebrows say about you:
Shape:
Curved: You are a people person, are content being a follower and would rather spend your nights out with friend than home alone
Straight: You are a very direct person, which sometimes leads you to sound blunt. However you think very logically and enjoy solving puzzles
Angled: You are a control queen who likes to have everything very tidy and ordered and dislikes nonsense and interruption. 
 
Position:
High: You are very observant and thoughtful. You would rather take the time to think through the pros and cons of a decision rather than jump to any conclusions. You prefer to keep to yourself and are very quiet. 
Low: You are very quick witted and your fast paced decision making often makes you appear rash or impulsive to those around you. You are very extroverted and like to be the center of attention. 
 
Type:
Bushy: You are very mentally active, witty and intellectual. 
Thin: You are very self conscious, often overly critical and always very goal oriented.
Winged(thick in the center but thin towards the ends: You are a planner and enjoy being the leader of any given group. 
Almost Invisible: You enjoy being part of the crowd while at the same time being very good at reading people. You are secretive and quiet but a very good listener to your friends. 
 
The Art of Managing your Eyebrows
There are many ways to manage your eyebrows.  We will go over the pros and cons of a few of the most common ones:
Waxing: This method usually involves a trip to the salon (though it can be attempted at home if you choose to risk it). It involves strips of wax being placed over the hairs, pressed down and then quickly yanked away, pulling out the unwanted hairs.
Pros: Easy, long lasting
Cons: Pricey, painful
Threading: Founded in India, this method is much like plucking. However in the case of threading, during which multiple hairs are plucked at once using two pieces of thread, it is usually advised to use a professional. 
Pros: Precise, long lasting, good for sensitive skin
Cons: Limited availability, pain, cost
Tweezing: While not done in salons because of the time it takes, this home solution is convenient, requiring only one small tool. By plucking a single hair at a time you would be shaping your own brows.
Pros: Inexpensive, precise, and painless
Cons: High maintenance, time consuming

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Spots
 
 
Spots are a nightmare that in a perfect world would disappear once you leave puberty. We do not live in a perfect world.
 
Do not pop them. You’ve probably been told that since they first started appearing on your once-perfect skin. There is a reason for this piece of wisdom. Not only does it make the spot stick around longer, it can spread pus that causes other spots and leave scarring. 
 
A good skin care routine should help control outbreaks.
 
The doctor can provide medicine for controlling outbreaks but this method should only be approached if the outbreaks and uncontrollable and/or painful. 
 
If you have a spot, don’t keep touching it to see if it’s gone. It hasn’t and you’re making it worse.
 
 
当你过了青春期,在这完美的世界上像噩梦一样的痘痘将会消失。我们并没有活在一个完美的世界。
 
不要弄破痘痘。当痘痘第一次出现在你完美的皮肤上的时,你可能被告知这些。这个建议是有道理的。弄破它们不仅会使痘痘持久存在,而且脓液会引起更多的痘痘和痘印。
 
一个好的护肤方法有助于控制痘痘的爆发。医生可以提供药物来控制痘痘爆发,但是这种方法只适用于痘痘暴涨不能控制或痛苦的时候。
 
如果你长痘痘,不要碰它让它自然消退,你碰它将让情况更糟。

Good skin can be the difference between looking sixteen and looking sixty (although let’s face it, it’s best to settle somewhere in the middle). No matter what advertising may tell you, once damaged that damage is usually permanent.
 
Establish a skincare routine. Wash your face with the same soap and cleanser twice a day. For soaps to work their magic they need to be on your skin for at least thirty seconds.

Bottles that promise to help clear acne or give you younger looking skin won’t work if used just once or twice. Their success depends on incorporating them into your daily routine for a few weeks – only then will you see results.
 
Moisturize every day.
 
Smoking and an unhealthy lifestyle can prematurely age your skin.

良好的皮肤在16岁和60岁之间的差别是可以看到的(尽管我们面对它,但是我们还是最好能够采取措施解决改善一下)。无论什么广告告诉你,一旦伤坏,损坏通常是永久性的。
 
形成一个护肤程序。用肥皂清洁皮肤,一天两次。肥皂有着神奇的功效它们需要在皮肤上揉搓至少30秒。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Applying Makeup
 
 
Before applying makeup
 
Preparation is key to having a clean finished product and keeping skin healthy and bright.
Cleanser-giving you a clean base to work with Toner-removes any residue left by facial cleanser as well as reducing the size of your pores, resulting in less of a chance of pimples as a result of makeup application.Moisturizer-Keeps face from drying out by applied cosmetics.  
 
The amount and style of makeup application will and should vary with the season and, of course, depending on the situation. For example, liquid foundation with leave you with a healthier, younger look and should be utilized in the warmer seasons (also because there is less of a chance of them being sweated off). Powdered foundations leave a more cakey appearance and require a heavier hand, something often necessary in the colder months.  If you aren’t a fan of using full face foundations and still find yourself with blotchy skin, try using a BB cream (which are also ideal for the summer heat as they often include low SPF sunscreen.)
 
Eyes
 
Nude colors are a safe bet, as there are shades that will work for everyone and they accentuate the natural beauty of one’s eyes rather than running the risk of clashing with your eye hue as you do with colored shadows.  
 
If you do choose to use a color, make sure you are clear on which colors will look alright with your skin tone. For Example, Golds or Yellows are generally more fitting to darker complexions while pinks and reds often make these same people appear to have a black eye. KNOW WHICH COLORS WORK FOR YOUR COMPLEXTION.
 
When applying eye makeup, most professionals recommend working in this order: Primer (to keep shadow from clumping in the creases of your eyelid), Shadow, Liner, Mascara
 
Tricks and Tips:
 
-If you are worried about not being able to keep the wings of your eyeliner even and symmetrical, use a spoon to help create the perfect swoop.
 
-To give lashes more volume without using falsies, apply one layer of mascara, brush baby powder on your lashes and then apply another layer of mascara.
 
-If you are worried about your lipstick fading to quickly apply your lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips and brush over the tissue with baby powder. The powder will help to set the lipstick to your lips assuring longer lasting color. 
 
IMPORTANT: Always remember to wash all the makeup off your face before going to sleep at night. Few things are as damaging to your skin then sleeping in that day’s makeup only to reapply the next morning.  Liquid makeup removers as well as facial cleansing wipes are equally effective.
 
 
妆前准备
 
关键的准备工作是有一个清洁的产品,保持皮肤健康有光泽。洁面乳给你一个清洁的基础。
爽肤水去除任何残留的洗面奶,减少毛孔粗大,可以减少由于化妆所引起粉刺。注意面部保湿避免由于使用化妆品而皮肤干燥。不同的化妆品的使用要随季节而变化,当然,这取决于不同情况。
 
例如,粉底液留给你一个更健康,更年轻的容颜,应利用在温暖的季节(也因为它可以较少的流汗),他们是大汗淋漓)。粉性的基底会在你的皮肤上留下厚厚一层脂粉,有必要涂抹的时候需要用些力气有时候适合在寒冷的季节使用。如果你不喜欢涂抹全脸,而且自己的脸上有斑点,尝试使用 BB霜(在炎热的夏天使用也是很理想的,他们通常包括低SPF的防晒霜。)
 
眼部
 
裸色是一个很安全的眼部打底色,因为有阴影,所以适合很多人使用,而且他们强调人的眼部的自然美,而不是运用彩妆来增加眼部眼影混乱风险。
 
如果你选择使用一种颜色,你需要清楚这样的颜色可以衬住你的肤色让你的肤色会看起来很好。例如,金色或黄色通常更适合深肤色,粉红色和红色常使这些人看起来像有一个黑色的眼睛。要清楚的知道哪些颜色适合你的肤色。
 
眼妆时,大多数专业人士推荐在这个顺序工作:底漆(保持阴影聚集在你的眼皮处),阴影,眼线,睫毛膏

技巧诀窍
 
如果你担心不能够把你的眼线均匀对称,用勺子来帮助创造完美的俯冲。
 
让睫毛不使用假睫毛就可以更卷,涂上一层睫毛膏,睫毛刷,涂婴儿粉然后涂一层睫毛膏。
 
如果你担心你的口红褪色,在你的嘴唇上涂一层薄纸,用婴儿粉刷过薄纸。该粉末将有助于唇膏保存,让你的嘴唇保证持久的颜色。
 
重要电脑:记得要在晚上睡觉前卸掉你脸上的妆。如果没有完全卸妆第二天又重新上妆的话有些会损害你的皮肤。卸妆液及洁面湿巾同样有效。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Glasses
 
 
When picking out glasses there are many important factors to figure in, perhaps most importantly the shape of your face and the way the frames affect it.
 
Oval face-characterized by a narrow chin and forehead and slim, symmetrical shape. Because this face shape is relatively thin, it is recommended you find glasses with a thicker rim that extends wider than your face itself to maintain the balance. 
 
Round face-characterized by their softer, more circular face with a nearly equal length and width longer, narrower frames are recommended to help slim the face and rectangular shaped lenses will create the illusion of angles. 
 
Heart-shaped face-characterized by a broader forehead, and a narrow jaw line and chin frames that are wider at the bottom will help to balance this shaped face. Also recommended are lighter colors and materials. Another option would be rimless glasses though be careful because these tend to appear dated on many people. 
 
Square face-characterized by the well-defined angles in the forehead, jaw and chin. It is recommended that those with squared faces should avoid rectangular glasses as these will accentuate the angles of the face. Look for thicker, curved rims. 
 
7 Quick Makeup Tips for Girls with Glasses:
-Dab a bit of concealer under your eye to avoid the shadow of your frames making them look sunken.
-Blot away excess foundation to avoid it ending up smudged all over the rims of your glasses
- Use a tinted moisturizer to help conceal those pesky red marks often left where your glasses rest on your nose. 
-Make sure to keep your eyebrows looking clean. Since glasses draw peoples gazes to the eye area, unkempt eyebrows appear much more apparent. 
-Keep eye makeup simple. The frames of your glasses are already dominating your face and elaborate or colorful eye makeup will only clash. 
-When wearing glasses always use an eyelash curler to avoid those mascara smears that often appear on the lenses from the tips of your eyelashes. 
-If you are struggling with keeping your eye shadow toned-down and neutral, try shifting focus to other areas of your face. Try pairing bold frames with a bold lip to balance it out. 
 
 
有许多重要的因素影响眼镜的选择,也许最重要的是你脸型和框架的影响。
 
鹅蛋脸的特点是下巴尖额头窄,脸部对称。因为这个脸型比较薄,所以建议你找一个比你的脸更厚的眼镜,它比你的脸更宽,以保持平衡。
 
圆脸的特点是更柔和,因为圆,面部长宽几乎相等。建议戴更长更窄的眼镜,以修饰脸型,产生角度错觉。
 
心形脸有更宽的额头,和狭窄的下颌线和下巴,底部较宽的眼镜将有助于修饰这种脸型。建议轻巧的颜色和材料。另一种选择是无框眼镜但要小心,因为这些往往容易撞同款。
 
方脸的特点是额头、下巴棱角分明。应避免矩形眼镜,这些会加重脸部的棱角。适合较厚,有弧度的框架。
 
戴眼镜女孩的7个快速化妆技巧:
- 在眼睛周围涂一点遮瑕膏,以避免你的框架使它们看起来沉没的影子。
- 擦去多余的底妆,避免妆花了弄脏眼镜的边缘。
- 使用有色润肤霜帮助掩盖鼻子周围那些讨厌的瑕疵。
- 确保你的眉毛看起来干净。因为眼镜会使人的注意力集中在眼睛区,杂乱的眉毛显得更加明显。
- 画简单的眼妆。镜框已是面部装饰的主要部分,精细或色彩斑斓的眼妆只会喧宾夺主。
- 戴眼镜的时候,用睫毛夹来避免睫毛膏弄脏镜片。
- 如果眼影低调且中性,可以把重点放在其他五官上。试着用大胆的唇色来平衡。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Aging Gracefully
 
 
Remember, no two girls are the same size, so don’t be ashamed or surprised if something that looks amazing on your busty best friend, falls flat on you. The first step is to know your body type. The second step is to embrace it and know what looks good on you. 
 
Curvy Girls: Full bust, thin waist, full hips
Pros: You were graced with the classic hourglass figure many girls would kill for. 
Cons: The high fashion world never seems to cater to your curves and while that skirt looked killer on the skinny vogue model you know you would never be able to fit your hips into it. 
Helpful Hints: Embrace your curves! You will always be able to fill out looser tops without looking like you are wearing a tent and accentuating that waist with a belt and a pencil skirt will make for a ready-made, showstopper of a look any day. 
 
 
Hippy Girls: Small bust, thin waist, full hips
Pros: Your upper body is stunning, with long thin arms and an itty-bitty waist, while still having the curvy hip area coveted by many.
Cons: The problem that often arises for you is in the thigh area. You are probably used to using the easy way out and sticking to loose clothes to mask them.
Helpful Hints: Avoid belts or skinny pants, both of which will accentuate the thickness of your legs. Instead focus on bringing eyes to the good with statement necklaces or patterned top.
 
Athletic Girls: Broad shoulders, no distinguishable waist, wide hips
Pros: Congratulations!  You can look athletic without even trying! And while many girls complain that this body type isn’t inherently feminine it does come with the added bonus of not attracting cellulite as much as most other body types. 
Cons: Because your waist is difficult to distinguish you have difficulty wearing dresses or any loose-fitting clothing without appearing wide and boxy.
Helpful Hints: The clothes that will look best on you are those that create the illusion of the curves that you might not have naturally. Skirts with flared hemlines and wrap dresses are a must have in your wardrobe and aim for owning at least one pair of good tailored pants! 
 
 
Stick Thin Girls: Small Bust, Small waist, Small Hips
Pros: The high fashion world is at your fingertips! 
Cons: You lack curves and therefore can never wear oversized clothes so as to not look like you are swimming in your outfit. 
Helpful Hints: Your aversion to larger sizes may lead you too far in the opposite direction. Avoid drawing attention to your lack of curves with very tight skirts and pants or any low-cut top.   
 
 
记住,没有两个女孩的身材尺寸是一样的,所以如果最好的朋友胸很大而你是平胸,不要感到羞耻或惊讶。第一步是要知道你的身材类型,第二步是接受它,知道适合自己的造型
 
曲线女孩:有丰满的胸和臀、纤细的腰
优点:很多女孩羡慕的典型的沙漏型身材。
缺点:这种曲线不适合高级时尚,裙子穿在瘦瘦的时装模特身上很好看,而你知道臀围永远不适合。
 
 
嬉皮士女孩:小胸围,纤细的腰部、臀部丰满
优点:你的上半身很美,细长的手臂和纤细的腰,同时还具有丰满的臀部。
缺点:问题经常出现在大腿。使用简单的方法,穿宽松的衣服来掩盖他们。
友情提示:避免皮带或紧身裤,都将加重你的腿的厚度。相反,专注于将视觉重点放在颈部或上面。
 
运动女孩:宽肩,腰线不明显,宽臀
优点:恭喜你!你可以不用尝试就看起来充满活力!虽然很多女孩子抱怨这身型并不天生女性化,但不看胖也算是额外的福利。
缺点:因为腰线不明显,穿宽松的衣服不显得宽而四四方方的。
提示:最好的衣服可以创造你有自然曲线的错觉。喇叭裙和包臀礼服裙是你的衣柜必备,拥有至少一条量身定做的裤子!
 
 
苗条女孩:平胸、细腰、小屁股
优点:高级就在你的指尖!
缺点:你缺乏曲线,因此不能穿大号的衣服,不然松松垮垮。
有用的提示:不要穿大号的衣服。避免聚焦缺点的衣服,过紧的裙子和裤子或任何低胸。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Aging Gracefully
 
 
Aging and embracing your age as it comes rather than dreading each birthday as it flies by, is one of the most difficult journeys a woman will go through in her lifetime. Dealing with a changing body, and changing circumstances, especially in those who feel as if they have spent years getting to a place where they truly like how they look, will be torturous. But what can you do? The answer is nothing. There is no magical elixir to help the aging process? You do not NEED to get your face pumped full of Botox to re-dye the roots of your hair every month so the grey doesn’t show. Aging absolutely beautiful!And you should be able to embrace it, relax into it, and love it rather than resent it. 
 
“And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” - Audrey Hepburn
 
 
The Art of Aging Gracefully
 
There are many studies that go into how to look younger.  I believe however that it is so much more important to FEEL younger.  So here are a few tips on how to focus on that:
 
- BE HAPPY!  
Pessimism and frowning not only give you wrinkles (true fact!) but also cause the aging process to be much harder. If you are pessimistic about the changes you are going through they will be difficult! If you look on the bright side it will be much easier to overcome obstacles.
 
- ACCEPT CHANGES! 
Change is simply a part of life. Try to fight it and you will lose.  Wouldn’t it be so much easier to just go with the flow and learn to adapt to whatever changes are thrown your way? The answer is yes, yes it would. 
 
 
- REJECT STEREOTYPES! 
Just because you are over 50 does not mean you need to throw your hands up, dye your hair grey and buy a bunch of cats!  You are still you!  Dye your hair because you LOVE the color or buy the cats because you LOVE their attitudes but do not let yourself be told that there is a way you are supposed to be acting, or appearing.  You are still you! That is more important than anything else. 
 
- FIND MEANINGFUL ACTIVITIES! 
As you grow older, especially approaching the age of retirement, it will be easy to lose yourself to laziness. However laziness only breads more laziness and will end up being much worse for your health and mentality than finding something that interests you or picking up a new hobby! 
 
- BE CONFIDENT! 
Everyone will age. That is a fact that nobody can deny.  So what is the use of feeling ashamed of a wrinkle or grey hair? Isn’t it more meaningful if you go out and flaunt your age, like a badge of your wisdom? Yes…yes it is.
 
“You don't stop laughing when you grow old; you grow old when you stop laughing.” - George Bernard Shaw
 
 
坦然面对你的年龄和衰老,而不是因为时间飞逝害怕每年的生日,这是女人一生中最困难的事情之一。与不断变化的身体和不断变化的情况打交道,特别是那些花费数年来让自己变得年轻的人,将是痛苦的。你可以做什么吗?答案是没有。有没有灵丹妙药阻止衰老?你不需要让你的脸注满肉毒杆菌,每个月重新将白发染黑。变老也可以漂亮!而且你应该能够放轻松,接受它,爱它,而不是反感。
 
 “一个女人的美丽,随着岁月的流逝只会增加!” ― 奥黛丽·赫本
 
 
优雅老去的艺术
 
有许多研究探讨如何看起来更年轻。然而,我相信,“觉得”年轻重要的多。所以这里有一些关于这一点的技巧:
 
- 变快乐!
悲观和皱着眉头,不仅给你的皱纹(真的!)也会加速衰老。如果你对你所经历的改变感到悲观,他们会很难!如果你看看光明的一面,它会更容易克服障碍。
 
- 接受变化!
变化只是生活的一部分。尝试与它抗争你只会输。岂不是太容易就顺其自然,学会适应任何改变你的方式吗?答案是肯定的,是的。
 
 
- 拒绝刻板印象!
五十几岁并不意味着需要帮助、头发染灰色和买一堆猫!你还是你!染发,因为你喜欢那个颜色。买猫,因为他们粘人。但不要让自己被告知有一种方法你应该表演,或出现。你还是你!这是比任何事情都更重要。
 
- 找到有意义的活动!
随着你年龄的增长,特别是临近退休的年龄,很容易迷失自己,变懒惰。然而懒惰只回更懒惰,最终你的健康和心态会更糟。找到你感兴趣的东西或培养一个新的嗜好!
 
- 自信!
每个人都会变老。没有人能否认这是一个事实。因为皱纹或灰色的头发感到羞愧有什么意义吗?如果你出去炫耀你的年龄,它就像智慧的象征,是不是更有意义?是的…是的。
 
“因为年老而停止玩乐,我们是因为停止玩乐而变老。” — 萧伯纳
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Tattoos and Piercings
 
 
Tattoos and piercings divide opinion to put it mildly. Some people will get dozens in their life, while others consider permanent body modification for aesthetic reasons tantamount to self-harm.
 
Moderation is probably a good idea. While ear piercings are almost universally socially acceptable, more unusual piercings can raise eyebrows, particularly in the workplace. Get your piercings at a recognized salon with good hygiene standards. If in doubt, don’t use it. Make sure you care for your new piercings properly. Don’t pick them and keep them clean to prevent infection.
 
© David Mushegain
 
Most salons will suggest keeping your piercings in for several weeks to prevent them closing up. In reality, you should keep them in for closer to a year as it takes a long time for the skin to heal. It is recommended that tattoos are placed in areas where they can be fully covered if necessary.
 
Work with the tattoo artist to come up with the perfect design for you. Remember this is forever, you can say if you don’t like it or want something changed.
 
 
Once you’ve decided how you want it to look, make ten copies of the design and put it up all over the house. After looking at it every day for six months and not getting sick of it, you are ready to have it put on your skin. Start off with a small tattoo. Don’t get sleeves your first time. Follow instructions for the aftercare of your first tattoo. 
 
 
婉转的讨论纹身和穿孔。有些人会有几十个,而其他人认为因为审美而产生的永久身体修改等于自我伤害。
 
适度是个好主意。耳洞几乎为社会普遍接受,更不寻常的穿孔可以引起注意,特别是在工作场所。在一个公认的沙龙与良好的卫生标准得到你的刺青。如果有疑问,不要使用它。确保你照顾你的新的穿孔正确。不要挠他们,并保持清洁,防止感染。
 
多数美容院建议保持你的穿孔数周,以防止他们倒闭了。在现实中,你应该让他们在接近一年,因为它需要很长的时间为皮肤愈合。建议纹身纹在可以完全覆盖的地方,如果必要的话。
 
 
与纹身艺术家交流,让他来为你设计完美图案。记住这是永远的,如果你不喜欢它或想要改变什么你要提出来。
 
一旦你决定了想要怎么样的花纹,设计十个副本。本个月来每天看它都不觉得厌烦,你可以准备纹这个图案了。以小纹身开始。不要第一次就纹花臂。遵循建议纹你的第一个纹身。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Individual Style
 
 
What you chose to drape your body in is testament to you as a person. It reflects your style and personality. Following trends at best hides that, at worst makes you look bad because it doesn’t suit you. Therefore creating an individual style should be based upon two things: who you are and what suits you.
 
 
Who you are is the easy part. What do you want to wear? What sort of style do you like? Are you trendy? Professional? Modest? Feminine? Look at people’s whose fashion sense you admire. What do you like about it? What can you incorporate from it into your own looks? Don’t be afraid to experiment.
 
 
If the first part of style is creative, the second is the technical side. What features are you complimented on the most? Highlight them and let your flaws fade into the background. What colours look good on you? You may love red dresses but if they clash with your hair you’re never going to be the best expression of yourself. Learn your best and worst bits and how to bring out the best in your appearance.
 
 
Have a signature item. Constantly buying new clothes will not only break the bank but it wasteful. It’s better to buy a few high-quality items you adore than have one hundred so-so pieces. A signature item people can identify with you can become your trademark.
 
 
选择用你的身体证明你的为人,它反映了你的风格和个性。最好的是隐藏趋势,在最坏的情况下,使你看起来不好,因为它不适合你。因此,创建个性风格应该是基于两件事:你是谁、什么适合你。
 
 
你是谁是比较容易的部分。你想穿什么?你喜欢什么样的风格?你时尚吗?专业吗?适度的?女性吗?看看你崇尚的时尚感。你喜欢什么呢?你能把它融入自己的外表吗?不要害怕试验。
 
 
如果第一部分的风格创意,第二个是技术方面。你称赞最特性是什么?强调他们,隐藏缺陷。什么颜色好看?你可能喜欢红色礼服,但如果他们与你的头发不相配,你永远不能展示最好的自己。了解你最好和最差,学习如何展现最好的外表。
 
 
有标志性印记。经常买新衣服不仅浪费钱而且浪费资源。最好买一些高质量的东西,比一百块一般般的划算。标志性印记可以让人们认同你,可以成为你的商标。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Fashion Dos and Don'ts
 
 
Do
 
1. Try clothes before you buy. Sizes change according to stores and fits so don’t be afraid of trying a size bigger or smaller to fit that perfect fit.
 
2. Keep your clothes free of rips and holes.
 
3. Embrace hats. Not only are they good for bad hair days, but can be totally cute too. NOTE: Nice hats do not have ears on them.
 
4. Be bold. Leave the black sweater at home and experiment with bold primary colours and more unusual shades. 
 
5. Invest in accessories. Forking out for a few high-quality pieces that you know compliment your looks can make the difference between a good and bad outfit.
 
6. Layer. Instead of going for the extra thick jumpers, use several layers to keep warm. Learn which colours go together to create cool looks.
 
7. Dress for your age. This works both ways. A twenty year old should not dress like a forty year old… and vice versa. 
 
8. Remember that casual is not a synonym for sloppy. Casual means stylish and chic but not too dressy.
 
9. Make sure your accessories suit the style you are aiming for.
 
10. Bulk buy. This might sound like an odd one but if you absolutely love your ballerina flats they’re not going to last forever. So why not buy a couple of extra pairs before they go out of stock?
 
 
Don’t
 
1. Wear tights as pants. Even leggings and jeggings are really pushing it and should only be worn as pants by the hopelessly lazy. 
 
2. Velour tracksuits. Here’s a handy hint: if you could work out wearing it, you shouldn’t be wearing it anywhere except the gym.
 
3. Go over the top with shoulder padding… Unless you are playing American football. 
 
4. Short shorts or crop top. Not short shorts and crop top.
 
5. Let your underwear show. If bra straps are creeping about your shoulders, you need a strapless bra. Wearing tight underwear under leggings or tights can also make your bum look weird.
 
6. No baseball caps.
 
7. No tutus. 
 
8. Overdo it on the logos. You are not a walking advert. Besides people will assume it’s fake.
 
9. Platform sneakers. Sneakers are for running.
 
10. See through trousers. Not okay. 
 
 
可以
 
1. 买衣服前先试试。根据店家和体型更换尺寸,不要怕试穿尺寸大或小,完美的适合你就好了。
 
2. 保持你的衣服没有撕裂和洞洞。
 
3. 接受帽子。它们不仅有利于糟糕的发型,而且十分可爱可爱。注意:漂亮的帽子没有耳朵。
 
4. 要大胆。把黑色的毛衣丢在家,试试大胆的基础颜色和更不寻常的颜色。
 
5. 投资首饰。找一些高质量的单品,搭配不同造型,可以区分好坏造型。
 
6. 层数。穿几层保持温暖而不是穿额外的厚厚的运动服。学习色彩搭配,打造清爽的外观。
 
7. 穿符合年龄的衣服。此条任何方面适用。20岁的年纪不该打扮成40岁…反之亦然。
 
8. 记住,随便不是草率的同义词。休闲意味着时尚和别致的,而不是不考究。
 
9. 首饰要和当日着装风格相配。
 
10. 批量购买。这可能听起来奇怪。但是如果你绝对喜欢你的平底芭蕾鞋,他们不会永远生产下去。所以为什么不在售罄前囤一些?
 
 
不要
 
1. 不要穿紧身裤。打底裤和牛仔样式打底紧身裤不好看,只有懒到无可救药的人才会这么穿。
 
2. 不要穿丝绒运动服。这是一个方便的提示:你不应该在除了健身房以外的地方穿。
 
3. 不要穿夸张的垫肩…除非你踢美式足球。
 
4. 短裤或露脐上衣。不要穿这些。
 
5. 不要让内裤内衣露出来。如果胸罩肩带掉下来,你需要一件无肩带文胸。穿紧身内衣紧身裤会让你的屁股看起来怪怪的。
 
6. 不要穿棒球帽。
 
7. 不要穿芭蕾舞裙。
 
8. 不要穿太多logo的衣服,你不是行走的广告牌。别人会觉得你穿的是假货。
 
9. 不要穿平底运动鞋,运动鞋是跑步穿的。
 
10. 不要穿透明的裤子,这样不好。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Superfoods
 
 
“Superfoods” is something of a misnomer used primarily as a marketing tool. In fact use of the term has been banned in the EU unless the claim is accompanied by a specific medical claim and supported by scientific evidence. AS with everything to do with health, there is no quick fix.
 
Claims that blueberries can prevent aging or that acai can improve eyesight aren’t actually supported by credible evidence. And think about it – do you honestly believe that eating just blueberries will prevent the inevitable onslaught of time?
 
 
Nothing can really substitute a good, balanced diet. With that in mind, there are of course certain foods that it doesn’t hurt to incorporate into your diet for their high vitamin content. That is not to say these foods will cure cancer or make you immune to every disease, but they are a good source of nutrition. 
 
We need different vitamins to keep our bodies healthy. For the most part we cannot synthesize these ourselves so must get them from foods such as fruit, vegetables, meats and dairy products. 
 
 
Iron
Found In:Oysters, white beans, dark chocolate, beef liver, lentils, spinach
Used For: An essential component of hemoglobin, which is found in blood cells and helps to transfer blood around the body. Also supports metabolism, cell functioning, growth and hormone synthesis. 
Notes: Iron deficiency can lead to anemia. Pregnant woman, children and regular blood donors need to monitor their iron intake. 
 
Calcium
Found In: Yoghurt, cheese, sardines, milk, tofu
Used For: Ninety-nine per cent of calcium goes towards your bones and teeth, keeping them strong as they reform.
Notes: Yoghurt and cheese may be generally high in calcium, but the levels can vary depending on the specific product. Plain and low fat is the best for yoghurts, while mozzarella tops the cheese list, closely followed by cheddar. A lack of calcium can lead to osteoporosis later in life, which makes your bones less dense and more susceptible to fractures. 
 
Magnesium
Found In: Almonds, spinach, cashews, peanuts, soymilk 
Used For: Synthesizing DNA, transporting calcium and potassium across cell membranes. 
Notes: Abundant in the body with a variety of functions, deficiencies in this vitamin are fortunately unlikely unless you have an existing health condition or suffer from chronic alcoholism.
 
 
Vitamin A
Found In: Sweet potato, beef liver, spinach, carrots, pumpkin pie
Used For: Light absorption in eyes, supporting immune system
Notes: Vitamin A deficiency leads to blindness and even death for hundreds of thousands of children in developing countries this year. Over a decade ago, a new strain of GM rice containing Vitamin A was created to address this, but has not yet been used due to the prolonged campaigns of anti-GM and anti-globalization protestors. During the time spent arguing, 8 million children to date have died.
 
Vitamin B6
Found In: Chickpeas, beef liver, tuna, salmon, chicken breast
Used For: This vitamin has over one hundred functions, including aiding the immune system and cognitive development.
Notes: Deficiencies are uncommon but early warning signs include lip scaling and a swollen tongue.
 
Vitamin B12
Found In: Clams, liver, trout, salmon, tuna
Used For: Forming red blood cells, synthesizing DNA, neurological function 
Notes: Vegetarians in particular have to be careful to get enough vitamin B12 as it occurs mostly in meats and fish. However breakfast cereals fortified with Vitamin B12 are easy to find and tasty to boot, often also containing high levels of other materials like zinc and iron.
 
 
Vitamin D
Found In: Sunshine! Cod liver oil, swordfish, salmon, tuna, fortified orange juice
Used For: Calcium absorption and bone growth 
Notes: You can get all the vitamin D you need just by going out in the sun and letting it absorb into your skin. 
 
Vitamin E
Found In: Wheat germ oil, sunflower seeds, almonds, sunflower oil, safflower oil
Used For: As an antioxidant, it protects from harmful free radicals.
Notes: Free radicals are often found in pollution and cigarette smoke and are suspected of causing cancer by damaging cells.
 
Zinc
Found In: Oysters, crab, beef, lobster, cashews
Used For: Boosting the immune system, healing wounds and growth and development.
Notes: If you eat a lot of legumes and grains you may need to up your zinc intake as these foods are known to inhibit absorption.
 
 
“超级食品”是一个主要用作营销的误称。事实上该术语已被欧盟禁止,除非是特定的医疗声明或科学证据的支持。健康不是一蹴而就的。
 
据说蓝莓可以防止老化或巴西莓可以改善视力,这些实际上不是由可信的。想一想——你真的相信只吃蓝莓就可以与时间抗衡吗?
 
 
没有任何东西可以替代均衡合理的饮食。考虑到这一点,当然,某些食物不会妨碍高含量维生素的吸收。这并不是说这些食物可以治愈癌症或者使你免疫所有疾病,但他们是很好的营养来源。
 
我们需要不同的维生素来保持我们的身体健康。在大多数情况下我们不能合成维生素,所以必须加强食物来源,如水果、蔬菜、肉类和乳制品。
 
 
铁元素
来源:牡蛎、白豆、黑巧克力、牛肝、扁豆、菠菜
作用:血红蛋白的重要组成部分,它存在于血液细胞,有助于血液流遍全身。还支持新陈代谢、细胞功能、增长和激素的合成。
注意:缺铁会导致贫血。孕妇、儿童和定期献血者需要注意他们的铁摄入量。
 
钙元素
来源:酸奶、奶酪、沙丁鱼、牛奶、豆腐
作用:人类的骨骼和牙齿百分之九十九都是钙,从而使它们保持强韧。
注意:酸奶和奶酪通常都富含钙,但水平取决于特定的产品。普通和低脂酸奶是最好的,马苏里拉在奶酪里含钙最高,紧随其后的是切达干酪。缺钙会导致骨质疏松症中,使骨骼密度较低,人更容易骨折。
 
镁元素
来源:杏仁、菠菜、腰果、花生、豆浆
作用:合成DNA,帮助钙和钾细胞跨膜运输。
注意:丰富的镁元素在体内具有多种功能, 镁元素同样不可缺少,除非你有一个现有的健康状况或患有慢性酒精中毒。
 
 
维他命A
来源:红薯、牛肝、菠菜、胡萝卜、南瓜派
作用:亮眼明目,提高免疫力
注意:维生素A缺乏症会导致失明,甚至导致发展中国家成千上万的孩子的思维。十多年前,一种富含维生素A的新型转基因水稻的诞生就是为了解决这个问题,但由于长期的反转基因运动和反全球化示威者,这种转基因水稻并没有得到推广,迄今为止,争论期间800万名儿童已经死亡。
 
维生素B6
来源:鹰嘴豆、牛肝、金枪鱼、三文鱼、鸡胸肉
作用:这种维生素有超过百种的功能,包括提高免疫力和认知发展。
注意:缺乏维生素B6不太常见,但早期症状包括唇缩放和舌头肿胀。
 
维生素B12
来源:蛤、肝、鳟鱼、鲑鱼、金枪鱼
作用:形成红细胞,合成DNA,提高神经功能
注意:素食者尤其要小心,足够的维生素B12主要来自肉和鱼。早餐麦片富含维生素B12,很容易获得也很美味,往往还富含其他维生素,如铁和锌。
 
 
维生素D

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Special Dietary Requirements
 
 
You have everything planned, all three courses. The wines match the food the napkins match the invitations, all the spoons are laid out in the correct order and you are quite sure your dinner party is set to be a resounding success. Until two hours before a guest calls and tells you they're vegetarian.
 
 
There are a thousand different reasons why people don't eat certain foods – religious ones, health ones or ethical ones. A special dietary requirement is different from not liking something. Given enough time it should be easy to accommodate someone for dinner who can't eat certain types of food and it is the duty of a good host to do so.
 
 
Some people can be a little sensitive about what they can and can't eat. It's not for you to pry, to attempt to 'convert' them or to make a big deal of it. Someone who is vegetarian does not want chicken wafted in their face or slipped into their meal and doing such things is the mark of a bad and inconsiderate hostess. If a guest can't eat gluten, simply prepare a gluten-free alternative. If you have several people with the same diet, why not same yourself time and give everyone the same food.
 
 
That said, the onus is on the other party to let you know if they have a special dietary requirement and unfortunately many people don't bother until they actually arrive. If you're a vegetarian or only eat kosher or halal, let the host know well ahead of time so they can prepare something for you.
 
 
Allergies need to be taken very seriously. Nut allergies mean no food with nuts for anyone present and taking extra care that none of your ingredients contain nuts. Contact with certain food types for people with allergies will put them in hospital straight away and can even kill people. Don't take the risk and let it ruin your event. 
 
 
一切准备就绪。酒与食物相配,餐巾与来宾相配,所有的勺子都按正确的顺序摆放好了,你很肯定今天晚餐一定大获成功。直到两个小时之前,一个客人打电话告诉你他们是素食主义者。
 
 
人们不吃某些食物的原因有很多种:宗教、健康、道德等等。特殊的饮食要求不同于不喜欢吃某个东西。准备时间充裕的话,应该接受客人不能吃某些类型食物,合格的主人有义务这样做。
 
 
有些人对他们能吃的和不能吃的东西有点敏感。他们不是和你抬杠,试敲你竹杠。有的人是素食主义者,他不希望鸡肉出现或饭里有鸡肉,女主人明知故犯的话是不合适的。如果客人不能吃含麸质的东西,那么就准备无麸质的替代品。如果几个人有相同的饮食习惯,为什么不给每个人都相同的食物呢,这样可以节省时间。
 
 
如果有特殊的饮食要求,对方有责任让你知道, 遗憾的是很多人到了主人家里才说。如果你是一个素食主义者或只吃清真食品,请让主人知道提前做准备。
 
 
过敏则需要严肃对待。坚果过敏意味着需要额外照顾,所有食物都吃不含坚果成分。若过敏体质者接触了过敏源,可能会被送医院,严重者会死亡。不要让这样的风险毁了你的宴请。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Sunburn
 
 
Fun in the sun may be all that, but getting burnt is no laughing matter. Not only does it look gross when it starts peeling, but it’s a leading cause of skin cancer and can hurt like hell.
 
The key is prevention. There is no quick cure for sun burn or sun poisoning so it is best to eschew it entirely. Always use sun cream and reapplying it regularly.
 
 
The SPF on a bottle of sun cream stands for Sun Protection Factor. How it works is, in theory, simple. SPF is based on the amount of time it takes your skin to develop a mild redness. If, without sun cream, you develop mild redness after twenty minutes, using SPF 15 will prolong that period to 300 minutes (15 x 20), also known as five hours.
 
However, in reality this formula is subject to many variables, including time of day and location. It is important that the sun screen you choose covers a “broad spectrum” of rays. Traditionally many creams only protected against UVB rays, not UVA.
 
 
Water can also minimize the efficacy of sun screen, even if it says waterproof on the bottle.
 
Most people neither apply a sufficient amount of cream nor do it often enough. Turn it into a game. Until you have enough sun cream on that you slide of the inflatable ring every time you sit on it, you do not have enough.
 
 
A more out-there preventative measure suggests first creating a paste made of tomatoes and then rubbing it over your skin. The idea is that the tomato’s rich nutrients will act as a barrier between UV rays and you.
 
Okay, so you didn’t listen and now look like a lobster fresh from the pot. There is no quick fix to get rid of sunburn. Fortunately there are ways however to help the healing process, prevent further damage and relief pain. And for God’s sake, if you’re burnt stay out of the sun.
 
 
Beyond over the counter treatments, a lot of home remedies have sprung up that people swear by. Although little research has been done into them, it’s worth a try for relieving pain. Common home treatments include applying the following to the affected area:
 
Aloe Vera
Cold compresses
Mint
Vinegar
Menthol
Camphor
Cucumber
Honey
 
 
If burned, remember to continue moisturizing your skin, even as it peels. It may hurt, but your skin will thank you in the long run.
 
Don’t pick at it. It won’t make it look or feel any better.
 
Continued long exposure to the sun will give you a lovely tan now, but in ten years you WILL look like an old wrinkly tea bag. You have been warned.
 
 
阳光下的乐趣有很多种,但晒伤就不好了。晒伤不仅会引起蜕皮,甚至会导致皮肤癌让人生不如死。
 
防护是关键。没有快速治愈晒伤的方法所以最好完全避免。请定期、始终使用防晒霜。
 
 
防晒霜上的SPF代表防晒系数。简单的从理论上说,就是防晒霜如何发挥作用。SPF基于你的皮肤轻度发红的时间测算量值。如果未涂防晒霜的皮肤20分钟后开始泛红的话,那么SPF15的防晒霜使皮肤300(15x20)分钟,也就是五小时后泛红。
 
然而在现实中,这个公式受许多可变因素影响,包括外出时长和地点。因此你选择的防晒霜所包含的“宽谱”的光线变得重要起来。传统上讲,防晒霜只能阻止UVB干扰,而不能阻止UVA。
 
 
水也会降低防晒霜的功效,即使瓶身上写着“防水”。
 
很多人既没有用够量也没有常补涂。把他变成游戏吧。即使用够量,但不补涂也是不行的。
 
 
还有更具预防性的措施:做些番茄酱,把它们抹到皮肤上。番茄酱丰富的营养可以作为紫外线和你之间的屏障。
 
好吧,你没有听,这样会像出锅的龙虾。没有快速修复晒伤的方法。幸运的是,有办法帮助愈合过程,防止更深的伤害和减轻疼痛。而在上帝的份上,如果你被晒伤,请远离太阳。
 
 
除了在柜台治疗外,很多人们验证过的家庭的补救措施如雨后春笋般涌现。虽然没经过什么研究,为了减轻疼痛值得一试。普通家庭治疗包括将以下材料:
 
芦荟
冷敷
薄荷
薄荷醇
樟脑
黄瓜
蜜糖
 
 
如果烧伤,即使脱皮了也要记得继续保湿你的皮肤。它可能会受伤,但今后你的皮肤会感谢你。
 
不要选择它。它不会使你看起来或感觉更好。
 
持续长时间暴露在阳光下,皮肤会变成可爱的褐色,但在十年后你会像一个老皱茶袋。警告过你了哦。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Stay Cool
 
 
Summer is awesome. Whether you're a sun worshipper or prefer protecting your skin beneath an umbrella, there's nothing like blue skies and the happiness associated with good weather. And while protecting your skin should be a number one priority, there's also something else to consider: staying cool.
 
 
You have the sun dress. You have the shades. You have a rocking bod and it's beach time. But if by the time you reach the sand you have a tendency to have more sweat and red blotches than a pig in paradise, that's what people are going to notice. 
 
 
Overheating in the sun can also be dangerous and result in a sunstroke. Follow these tips to not only look cool in the sun, but to actually feel so.
 
 
Do:
 
1. Wear loose, light materials.
 
2. Use deodorant. For some reason a lot of people think they don't need it. But just because you can't smell yourself, doesn't mean other people can't.
 
3. Tie your hear back. Long hair in particular can really heat you up if not swept off your face and shoulders.
 
 
Don't:
 
1. Apply sunscreen in the sun. Apply it 15-30 minutes before you go outside. Not only does this protect your skin and reduce the risk of sunburn, but it stops you from sweating it all off.
 
2. Wear black. It absorbs heat and will make you hotter. Opt for lighter colours or white.
 
 
3. Stay out in the sun if you start feeling dizzy or light headed. It's ok to chill inside for a few minutes and come back out later.
 
4. Wear foundation. Use a little make up as possible to prevent it sliding off your face. If you can bear it, eschew foundation entirely.
 
 
夏天是令人畏惧的。无论你是太阳的崇拜者或喜欢在阳光下撑伞使肌肤免受伤害,没有什么比蔚蓝的天空与好天气更能让人联想起幸福。而保护你的皮肤应该是的首要任务,除此之外如何保持凉爽也是你需要考虑的。
 
 
你有太阳裙,你有树荫,你在沙滩上摇曳身姿。我们会注意到,人们在沙滩上时更加容易汗流浃背甚至起红疹。
 
 
在阳光下曝晒可能是危险的,过热会导致中暑。试试下面这些小技巧吧,不仅可以让你在太阳下看起来很酷而且能真正享受阳光带来的乐趣。
 
 
可以:
 
1. 穿轻便宽松的衣服。
 
2. 使用除臭剂。因为某些原因,很多人认为他们不需要它。但只是因为你不能闻到自己的气味,并不意味着其他人不能。
 
3. 将头发扎起。尤其是长发,如果长发披在肩背上,这样真的会让你觉得更热。
 
 
不要:
 
1. 在阳光下涂抹防晒霜。应在出门前15-30分钟涂抹,这样不仅能保护你的皮肤,减少晒伤的风险,而且能防止你的汗冲掉防晒霜。
 
2. 不要穿黑色的衣服。黑色吸收热量,会使你更热。可以选择较浅的颜色或白色。
 
 
3. 若你在阳光下感到头晕目眩,到房里阴凉片刻再回去吧。
 
4. 涂些粉底。可以画个淡妆来防止汗水流到脸上,如果你可以忍受,也完全可以不化。
 
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Environment Problems in China
 
 
While this is a heavier topic than most that you will find in this book, it is important for everyone to be aware of the changes and dangers facing your country and your planet today as well as what you can do to lesson your part in it. 
 
 
Here are some facts you should know about some of China’s environmental problems:
-Logging and fishing to supply the demand of the population in China causes biodiversity problems as far away as Africa.
-Respiratory and heart diseases attributed to the air pollution have become the leading cause of death in China.
-While efforts are being made to use more renewable resources to power the country, 75% of China’s energy is still produced using coal, a major cause of greenhouse gasses. 
-40% of the water in China’s river systems is unfit for human consumption.
-In Beijing alone there are more than 5 million cars driving around producing carbon emissions and a study done on the city’s air says that for more than half of the average month, breathing in the air of Beijing is akin to living in a smoke-lounge. 
 
 
While these problems are dire, many people see them as something they shouldn’t have to personally concern themselves with. What are you supposed to do about the 5 million cars driving around Beijing? 
 
 
However, it is important to remember that these problems belong to and effect every living thing on this planet, and it is important that each and every one of us make sure that we are doing our part in preventing these issues from getting worse. 
 
 
可能这是这本书里比较沉重的一个话题,但是对于每个人而言了解到环境问题的严重性是非常必要的,了解到我们生存的地球所面临的危险以及如何从自己做起来保护地球。
 
 
对于中国的环境问题,这里有几件事实我必须要告诉你:
-为了满足中国人口对于鱼类的需求,过分的不牢已经对海洋生物多样性产生威胁。
-由于空气污染及废弃导致的心脏疾病,已成为中国人死亡的首要原因。
-虽然人们开始重视可回收、可再生能源,但是75%的中国能源,还是以煤炭为源头,这也是引起温室效应的最大的原因。
-中国河流系统中40%的水源,不适合人类食用。
-只在北京一地,就有多达500万的车辆产生碳排放。一项对城市空气质量的研究指出,平均每个月中超过一般的时间,生活在北京就如同生活在吸烟区休息室中。
 
虽然这些问题让人毛骨悚然,但是很多人并不认为他们自身可以做出什么努力。面对北京一个城市的500万私家车,你又会有什么样的举措呢?
 
 
但是,请你一定要谨记,这些环境问题切切实实地影响着地球上的每一条生命,我们必须要确保我们自己的一举一动都在帮助环境保护,并非让环境问题变得越来越糟糕。

Lingo to Know: Ball, Strike, Out, Inning, Run
 
 
(American) Football: Pretty much only played in the US. The rules are much too complicated to explain in a brief paragraph but involve lots of big muscled men in tight pants tackling each other. 
 
Lingo to Know: Just cheer when the other fans cheer
 
 
Basketball: A sport very popular internationally and growing in popularity in China. Played indoors in a highly kept up court, basketball has two teams who try to get one ball away from each other to score in a basket on the other side of the court from them. 
 
Lingo to Know: Points, Assists, Rebounds, Foul, Travel, Pass
 
 
Hockey: Another internationally popular sport, though usually found in North America.  This game is played with two teams and is very similar to Soccer (also called football) but played on skates on an ice rink with a puck instead of a ball.  
 
Lingo to Know: Offsides, face off, goal, penalty, minor, major
 
 
Football (Soccer): Probably the biggest international sport, soccer is known and played and loved worldwide.  If you were to study up on one sport I would highly recommend it be this one. Played on a large field in a similar formation to hockey (but without the ice), football involves two teams facing off against each other to try to get past the defending plays and kick the ball into the opponents goal. No hands are allowed by anyone except the goalie. 
 
Lingo to Know: Goal! corner kick, off the sides, penalty
 
 
Rugby: Rugby is one of the most physical of sports. Internationally the pinnacle of the sport lies in the Rugby World Cup.  It is especially popular in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.  The team with the ball must move the ball up the field in ‘phases of play’. The ball can never be passed forwards but players can run forwards with the ball or kick the ball forward to chase it down. The opposing team needs to stop the attacking team by tackling and trying to retain the ball.
 
Lingo to Know: Lineout, Maul, Ruck, Scrum
 
对于女生而言,运动不失为一个有益于身心的项目。但是,如果你对于运动什么都不了解,那么将会显得尴尬。对于那些熟悉运动的女生,你大可不必接着看这篇文章。但是对于那些对球类运动一窍不通的女生,这里可能有一些用得上的提示:
 
不同的运动类型:
团队竞技:
 
 
棒球:这是一项风靡美国的运动,但是并没有得到太高的国际关注。然而,这项运动却拥有着十分忠实的追捧者。整个团队在一个零星的棒球场防守,而菱形场地以外则是对方团队进攻的地方,他们虎视眈眈地试图抓住机会抢夺对方手里的棒球,以为自己的团队加分。
 
行话关键词: 球,攻守,出界,带球跑
 
 
(美式)足球: 这项运动也基本上只在美国流行。这项运动的规则过于复杂,不能够在这里做简短的解释。但是参与这项运动的大多都是肌肉发达的帅哥们穿着紧身裤,互相竞争。
 
行话关键词:作为球迷,尽情欢呼就对了!
 
 
篮球:风靡全球的一项球类运动,同时近些年在中国也越来越受欢迎。这一项室内球类运动,两支球队拼尽全力得到篮球,并投入属于自己队的篮筐,即为得分。
 
行话关键词: 得分,助攻,篮板,犯规,通过
 
 
曲棍球:又一项流行于全球的球类运动,大多数在北美洲。这项运动也是两队互相竞争,类似于足球,但是双方在溜冰场穿着溜冰鞋争夺一颗冰球,而不是一颗普通的球。
 
行话关键词: 越位,进球,点球,主攻,助攻
 
 
足球: 这也许是最大的国际性体育项目了,受到全世界人的关注及喜爱。如果你只想钻研在一项运动上,那我极力推荐足球。这项运动类似于曲棍球(只是不在冰面上),两支队伍互相竞争,得到球之后送入门框。除了守门员之外,全程都不能够用手接触足球。
 
行话关键词: 得分,角球,罚球
 
 
橄榄球: 橄榄球是最需要体能的体育运动之一。橄榄球世界杯是橄榄球界世界级的比赛。这项运动在欧洲、澳洲和新西兰特受追捧。拥有橄榄球的队伍必须死守防线,队员可以带球跑动或是抛弃球之后拼命接到它,所有队员都要试图保持球在自己的队伍,阻挡对手的进攻。
 
行话关键词: 线外、抢假球、背罚
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Getting Fit – What not to do
 
 
You might think you make a really cute potato, but at other times you find yourself wondering if there is another way. Imagine being able to run through the hills of Salzburg singing all day – and not being out of breath within five minutes. 
 
 
Fitness is about more than just looking good. Being fit is part of leading a healthy life and reducing your risk of catching diseases or aging prematurely. But, yes, it makes you look good too.
 
With so many guide books and courses and videos out there, working out how to start getting into an aesthetically pleasing shape can be overwhelming. Jumping in and doing too much too soon without proper guidance can lead you to giving up after a few tries.
 
 
Getting into shape isn’t easy. But it is easier to stay in shape once you’re there. 
 
There is no quick fix that will see you shed thirty pounds in three days or give you abs in a week. Getting fit is a long and painful marathon, not a quick light sprint. Following fitness plans that promise quick results is a sure way to disappointment.
 
Compliment your fitness routine with an all-round healthy lifestyle. There’s no point running three times a week if you’re going to spend every night eating burgers, smoking profusely and drinking a gallon of beer. 
 
 
Getting fit does not have to mean jogging. Some people hate jogging and it’s perfectly okay to get fit without it. With so many different types of sport, there is always something to suit everyone. Check out yoga, basketball, swimming, ice skating, gymnastics, dancing, badminton, trampolining – there really is no excuse. 
 
Don’t try too much too soon. If you’re plan was to run four times a week stick to it. Even if on one of your off days you’re itchy to go, try to hold off. That way your enthusiasm will last. 
 
 
有时候你可能只会想窝在沙发里,但是又有时候会想让自己有另一种生活的方式。想象一下,如果能够跑完整个萨尔茨堡,整天唱歌,但又不会累到大喘气,这种生活会是什么样呢?
 
 
健康,不仅仅是为了好看,其意义更大。健康,意味着健康的生活习惯及方式,以减少得病或是早衰的几率。而且,这会让你看着更加美丽。
 
市面上有太多的书籍、课程或是视频,不断地冲击你对于健康美的追求。但是冒然地参加一项活动,或是在一瞬间没有专业指导下做太多的运动,只会让你望而却步。
 
 
塑造良好身材并不容易,但是一旦塑造成了,就更容易保持住这样的状态。
 
其实并没有很快速的方法,可以让你三天内减掉30磅,或是一周练出腹肌。健康的体态是需要长时间痛苦的过程的。那些所谓的快速健身方法,一定会令你失望。
 
全方位健康的生活方式,才是你应该有的健身计划。如果你每周慢跑三次,但是每晚都在啃汉堡,吸烟或是饮酒,那一切都是无用功。
 
 
健身并不意味着只有慢跑。有一些人非常讨厌跑步,但是一样可以非常健康。有很多种不同类型的运动,每个人都可以选择到最适合自己的一款。比如瑜伽、篮球、游泳、滑冰、体操、舞蹈、羽毛球、蹦床等等,那么多选择,你没有借口说你不喜欢。
 
当然也不要一下子尝试太多。如果你计划每周四次慢跑,那就一定要坚持下去。即使有时你想偷懒,请你务必坚持。这样持续下去,你的热情也会保持不退。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Followers and Fandom
 
Mario Merz, Alligator with Fibonacci Numbers to 377
 
Dealing with your followers:
 
-Your social network page should be about YOU first and then your followers.
-Don’t get obsessed with the numbers of likes or followers you have, instead focus on your page itself and making that into something that will attract followers in the long run. 
 
Gigi Hadid
 
The Dos and Don’ts of dealing with followers:
 
DO:
-Post regularly
- Keep your photos high quality and your posts meaningful
-Keep it consistent; whether it be opinions, writing style or photo style
-Be Original! Reposting funny photos will only get you so far…
-Interact with your followers and fans to keep them engaged
 
Justin Bieber
 
DON’T:
-Over share; nobody cares what you had for breakfast this morning
-Resort to any ‘get followers’ apps. These followers aren’t interested in what you have to share! They are simply interested in getting more followers themselves. 
-Be fake.  It is hard to put on a façade for a long period of time. By keeping your pages genuine you are amassing followers that actually care about what YOU have to say rather than those who just respond to what you think they want to hear. 
 
Pomellato
 
Being in a fandom:
 
-While following people on social media is a great way to stay up to date on your favorite celebrities, companies or other organizations, be wary of taking it too far.
 
The Dos and Don’ts of being in a fandom:
 
DO: 
-Follow whomever you like.
-Repost or comment on those posts you have something constructive to say about.
-Do get excited when you are noticed! 
 
Bella Hadid
 
DON’T:
-Comment on every single photo. Save it for when you have something constructive to say
-Beg for attention.  There is nothing more desperate looking than a comment on a celebrity’s account begging “Please respond to me!”
-Lose your mind when you are noticed (or not noticed). They are just people too! It isn’t the end of the world! 
 
Pomellato
 
与你的追随者接触:
-你的社交网络页面应该是关于你为首要,其次是你的追随者。
-不要迷恋于点赞或者追随者的数量,而应该集中于你的页面本身,在这制作那些能够长远地真正吸引追随者的东西。
 
Mario Merz, Numers in the Woods
 
与追随者之间该做什么和不该做什么
 
要做:
- 定期发文 
- 保证你照片的高品质和你的文章有意义 
-保持一致性;无论是意见,写作风格或照片风格
-原创!转发搞笑照片只会让你越走越远...
-与你的追随者和粉丝们互动,保证他们的参与度
 
切勿:
-过度分享;没有人会关注你今天早饭吃了什么
-采用任何“获得追随者”的应用程序。这些追随者对你的分享一点儿不感兴趣!他们只对让他们自己获得更多的追随者感兴趣。
-虚假。这是很难把一个门面的时间长。保持你的网页真诚,你会得到真正关心你说什么的追随者,而不是那些只想从你这听到他们想要的回应的追随者。
 
作为一个影迷:
-在社交媒体上关注你最喜爱的名人,企业或者其他组织是保持最新消息的好方法,但要注意适度就好。
 
Marina Abramović
 
作为一个影迷该做什么和不该做什么:
 
要做:
-关注你喜欢的人。 
-在转发或评论那些帖子时说一些建设性的话。 
-当你被注意到感到兴奋!.
 
Giuseppe Arcimboldo
 
切勿:
-评论每一张照片。留着等到你有有建设性的话要说时再说
-乞求关注。没有什么比在名人账户上乞求“请回复我!”这样的评论更让人绝望
-当你被注意到(或没有注意到)时失去理智。他们只是人!这不是世界末日!
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|When and What to Post
 
 
 
As many readers probably know, there is an art to making and maintaining a flourishing Instagram page. What post will get the most likes? What time of day should you post so that what you have to say is see by the most people? As the world of social media grows, so do the studies done to try to pinpoint how to create the perfect post. Here is some of what we have learned:
 
 
Facebook: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 2
Best time to post: Wednesdays, 1-3pm
Worst time to post: Weekends before 8am or after 8pm
 
Twitter: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 3
Best time to post: Monday-Thursday, 1-3pm
Worst time to post: Every day after 8pm, Friday after 3pm
 
Instagram: 
Ideal number of posts per day: 2
Best time to post: Wednesdays, 2-5pm
Worst time to post: 9am and 6pm
 
 
Questions to ask yourself when posting:

Does this post contain any punishable activity that should get out?
A surprising amount of people have been arrested for bragging or displaying some kind of illegal activity on their social media pages, assuming that this would not be checked.  Keep in mind that anything you post is out there for the world to see!  Even those photos or messages sent privately to friends can be accessed if necessary so BE AWARE of what you are posting.
 
Does any of the content in this post appear hateful or discriminatory?
While the widespread voicing and discussion of opinions is one of the things that make social media valuable today, you must recognize the difference between a strong opinion and hate speech, and learn to avoid the latter. 

Does this post contain any sensitive information that shouldn’t be posted publicly for the world to see?
Keep in mind that you must remain aware that some information is not posted on a public forum such as, home address, work address, personal phone number etc .  
 

Am I posting something genuinely or begging for the attention?
Begging for likes, affectionately termed ‘like-whoring’ is the act of posting for the simple pleasure of having your ego boosted by the number of people who like or respond to your post. While everyone deserves a bit of an ego boost now and then I would advise you be aware of the difference between tactfully asking for appreciation and demanding it.  For example, nobody is fooled by the glammed-up selfie you posted with the pouty caption “Who else thinks I am so ugly right now?” If you truly believe you are ugly in a photo, don’t post it.  If you want the appreciation of others, don’t try to belittle yourself in an attempt to receive compliments.  Nobody is fooled, and it makes you look a whole lot worse than if you had simply posted “Feeling great today!” or some other, more positive caption.

Is there any possibility that this post could look bad to a current or future employer?
Many companies and employers are beginning to introduce stricter guidelines as to what can appear on their employee’s social media networks.  For example, in many school districts in the United States, aspiring teachers must make sure that not one of the photos posted on their pages displays them or anyone around them holding an alcoholic beverage or smoking anything (cigarettes included). When posting consider the old saying “Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.” and dress your social network pages accordingly.

Is anything in this post antagonizing or insulting to any group of people?
On Facebook, the average person has a couple hundred friends of varying ethnicities, lifestyles and backgrounds. Everything posted there will most likely reach a much wider range of people than something spoken aloud. Therefore you must remain very aware of what you post and how it may sound to other people. A 14 year-old-boy in the United States is currently facing 2 years in prison for a photo he had considered amusing (displaying him pantomiming oral intercourse on a statue of Jesus Christ) but was picked up by a news station and deemed part of a “War on Christianity.” Keep in mind that you may have a different sense of humor or opinion than others and make sure that nothing you post can be seen as antagonizing. 
 
Remember:
Everything you post online will stay online!

The Golden Rule:
If you wouldn’t like your grandmother to see it, it shouldn’t be online.
 
 
很多读者可能知道,制作和维护一个蓬勃发展的Instagram的网页是一种艺术。什么样的帖子能得到最多的点赞?一天里应该在什么时间发文,应该说什么让大多数人看到?随着社交媒体世界的迅速发展,尝试找出如何打造完美的帖子做一些后期研究。下面是一些我们得知的内容:
 
 
Facebook:
理想的每天发帖数:2
最佳发帖时间:周三,下午1-3点
最糟糕的发帖时间:周末早上8点前或晚上8点以后
 
Twitter:
理想的每天发帖数:3
最佳发帖时间:周一至周四,下午1-3点
最糟糕的发帖时间:每天晚上8点之后,周五下午3点以后
 
Instagram:
理想的每天发帖数:2
最佳发帖时间:周三,下午2-5点
最糟糕的发帖时间:早上9点或下午6点
 
 
发帖时要问自己的问题:
 
这则帖子中是否包含任何会被处罚的活动应该被剔除的?
数量多到令人惊奇的人已经涉嫌在他们的社交媒体网页上夸大或展出的一些非法活动并假定这将不会被检查。请记住,任何你发布的内容都是给全世界看的!即使是那些私下发送给朋友的照片或信息如有必要也是可以存取的,所以你要知道你在发什么。
 
在这则帖子的内容中是否显示出任何憎恨或歧视?
意见的广泛发声和讨论是使社交媒体在当今变得有价值的事情之一,你必须认识到一个强大的舆论和仇恨言论之间的区别,并学会避免后者。
 
 
这则帖子中是否含有任何不应该公之于众的敏感信息?
请记住,你必须保持注意,有些信息不该在一个公开论坛发布,如家庭住址、工作地址、个人电话号码等。
 
我发布的东西是真实的还是为了乞求关注?
渴望得到点赞的人,被戏称为“点赞婊”,指的是发布内容仅为了从博取他人的点赞数和回应数中得到简单自我膨胀的快乐。虽然现今每个人都应该得到自我提升,我的建议是你需要知道巧妙的寻求欣赏和要求得到欣赏之间的差别。例如,你发布了一张经过盛装打扮的自拍照加上一句看似生气的说明:“现在还有谁认为我很丑?”,没有人会上当,如果你真的相信你很丑,那么你不要发布它。如果你真心希望得到别人的赞赏,不要通过贬低自己去企图得到赞扬。这看起来比你只是简单地张贴差了一大堆“今天感觉好极了!”或一些其他的积极的内容更差。
 
是否有可能你现在发布的这个帖子被当前或未来的雇主看到会不太好?
许多公司和企业开始执行严格的指导方针,什么是可以在他们的雇员的社交媒体上发布的。例如,在美国的许多学区,有抱负的教师必须确保贴在自己的社交网络上的照片没有一张会看到他们或他们周围的人拿着含酒精饮料或者在吸任何烟类(包括香烟)。当你要发布内容时请考虑一句老话“为你想要的工作去打扮穿着,而不是你拥有的工作。”,请将这句话应用在你的社交媒体上。
 
我发布的这篇内容是否会与人树敌或侮辱到任何人?
在Facebook上,平均每人都有几百个不同种族,生活方式和背景朋友。一切发布的帖子有将有可能被一个更广泛的人群看到,比你大声说话引起的关注还要多。因此,你必须非常清楚你发布的内容被他人看到会产生什么影响。一名14岁美国男孩目前正面临2年的监禁,他发布了一张他认为有趣的照片(他对着耶稣的雕像作口交的手势),但被一个新闻台搜索出来并认为那是“向基督教宣战”的意思。请记住,你的有幽默感或想法有可能和其他人都有所不同,确保不会发布任何与人树敌的内容。
 
记住:
任何你在线上发布的东西都要保持清醒!
 
黄金法则:
如果你不希望你的祖母看到它,那么它不应该被发布到网上。

Your home is your castle and nobody likes castles covered in empty pizza boxes, broken chairs and dusty shelves. Your own little empire should be a beacon of beauty and learning, not a little backwater fighting civil wars between roaches and ants.
 
Your home doesn’t necessarily have to be tidy 24/7, but it should at least be clean. You don’t know when you might suddenly have guests.
 
Julius Shulman
 
Tidy – when everything is neat and ordered
Clean – when meets a reasonable hygienic standard
 
Everyone has their dream home. Maybe it’s full of book shelves up to the ceiling and a warm rug by the fireplace, or ultra-modern and metallic. Stop thinking about what your home will be like in the future and make that a reality now. 
 
Be an artist. You like your wardrobe but the colour doesn’t match your new place? Get some paints and overalls and spend an afternoon pretending you’re an Italian designer. 
 
Dali with Coco Chanel
 
Invest in some art. It doesn’t have to be Van Gogh or Dali, but decorating the walls with some cool prints came completely redefine a space. Check out your local art galleries for inspiration.
 
If you have the cash to splash and want some unique and horrendously beautiful furniture, buy it in Bali. Enough said. 
 
Amandari, Bali
 
你的家就是你的城堡,没有人喜欢盖得像空比萨饼盒,里面只有破椅子和尘土飞扬的城堡。你自己的小王国应该是一个美丽和学术的灯塔,没有一点蟑螂和蚂蚁的痕迹。
 
你的家并不一定要7天24小时都很整洁,但它至少应该是干净的。你不知道什么时候你会突然有客人到访。
 
Julius Shulman
 
整洁 - 一切都整洁和有序
清洁 - 满足合理的卫生标准
 
每个人都有自己的梦想家园。也许它有一面墙满满是书的书架,在壁炉旁有温暖的地毯或有超现代和金属风格。别只想着你的家在未来会是什么样子了,让它成为现实吧。
 
成为一名艺术家。你很喜欢你的衣柜,但它的颜色却不符合您的新家风格?准备一些油漆和工作服,花一个下午的时间假装你就是一个意大利设计师。

投资一些艺术品。并不一定要是梵高或者达利,可以用一些很酷的画作来装饰墙壁,彻底地重新定义你的空间。去当地的艺术画廊看看在当中寻找灵感。

ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Technology
 
 
The growth of personal technology, in the form of cell phones, laptops, tablets, iPods, and other personal gadgets, is completely changing social interaction on many levels.  In this burgeoning technological world it is important to have at least a little bit of background knowledge:
 
Names to Know:  
 
 
MICROSOFT: An American based multinational technology company that revolutionized personal computer software.  Founded in 1975 by geniuses Bill Gates and Paul Allen, the company develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics and personal computers and services. 
 
 
APPLE: Another American based multinational technology company and Microsoft’s major competitor.  Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Ronald Wayne and Steve Wozniak, Apple’s headquarters is located in California from which is runs its very international brand designing, developing and selling consumer electronics.
 
 
DELL: Founded in 1984 by Michael S. Dell, this is one of the biggest privately owned tech companies focusing mainly on personal computers. Based in Texas, Dell, though less popular than Microsoft or Apple, produces, designs, sells and repairs computers. 
 
 
SONY: A Japanese international conglomerate, SONY was founded in 1946 in Tokyo Japan by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morito. 
 
 
 
XIAOMI: A very new but greatly growing Chinese company, XiaoMi was founded in 2010 by Lei Jun, Lin Bin, Hong Feng, Zhou Guangping, Li Wanqiang, Huang Jiangji, Liu De, and Wang Chuan.  Though it has only just begun to be available outside of china, the company shows great promise as its cell phones especially, catch up to the Apple phones in popularity here. 
 
 
Things to think about when finding the perfect phone for you:
 
Picking the perfect cell phone for you is no easy feat and there are many important factors to consider in the process. Today people’s phones are like another arm, something they rely on and need to be able to trust!  Here are some important things to think about when you are trying to find the perfect phone for you. 
 
MAIN USES: If you have a tough job that requires lots of communication you may want to take this into account when looking for your phone. If you are an avid photographer and use your phone camera all the time that is another thing to consider.  If you spend a lot of your time on social media you will want to think about that when looking for phones!
 
SIZE: In China especially, super large phones are becoming more and more common. However, many people still want to make sure that their phone will fit into their back pocket or small bag.  Make sure you decide ahead of time what size phone you are looking for so that you don’t end up hating a great phone just because it isn’t conveniently sized. 
 
PLATFORM: Nowadays the market is full of different platforms for your phone.  There is the iconic iOS platform used by Apple products such as the iPhone. However, many people prefer or are more used to the Android set up, found in XiaoMi phones and Samsung phones or the new Microsoft set up.  Do some research and find out which platform appeals to you before you decide which brand to go with.
 
FREQUENCY OF USE: Are you an avid phone user who will always have your phone in hand and relies on it every minute of every day? If so you are going to want to look at the battery life of any phone before you buy it to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth.  It is a real bummer to have to find an outlet everywhere you stop throughout a busy day.  
 
*HELPFUL HINT: If you are an avid phone user considering buying a travel charger.  This can be plugged in separately from your phone and charged at home so that when you are on the go you can have your phone plugged in and charging in your bag or on your desk at work. 
 
 
随着个人技术的发展,在手机,笔记本电脑,平板电脑,iPad和其他个人小玩意,在许多层面上彻底地改变着社会的互动。在这个新兴技术的世界里,至少要有一点点相关的知识背景非常重要:
 
微软:一家美国的跨国技术公司,它彻底改变了个人电脑软件。由天才比尔·盖茨和保罗·艾伦成立于1975年,公司开发、制造、授权、支持和销售计算机软件,用户电子产品和个人电脑和服务。
 
 
苹果:另一家美国的跨国技术公司,微软的主要竞争对手。由史蒂夫·乔布斯,罗纳德·韦恩和史蒂夫·沃兹尼亚克成立于1976年,苹果公司的总部设在美国加州,经营着非常国际化的品牌设计、开发和销售用户电子产品。
 
戴尔:由迈克尔·戴尔创立于1984年,这是最大的民营高科技公司之一,主要专注于个人电脑。总部在德克萨斯州,戴尔比微软或苹果稍冷门一些,主要生产、设计、销售和维修电脑。
 
 
索尼:日本国际集团,索尼公司由井深大和盛田昭夫于1946年成立于日本东京。
 
小米:一家非常新的且成长非常迅速的中国公司,小米由雷军,林斌,洪峰,周光平,黎万强,黄江吉,刘德和王川成立于2010年。虽然中国以外地区的销售才刚刚开始,该公司表示未来其手机极有可能赶上苹果手机的普及。
 
 
思考一下如何为自己找到属于你的完美手机:
 
挑选一只完美手机对你来说不是一件容易的事情,在这个过程中有很多重要的因素要考虑。现在,人们的手机就像是另一只手臂,他们需要依靠它,它需要能够被信任!以下是当你试图找到属于你的最完美手机时要思考的一些重要事情。
 
主要用途:如果你的工作需要大量的通话,当你寻找你的电话时你可能要考虑到这一点。如果你是一个狂热的摄影师和需要大量使用手机摄像是另一个要考虑的。如果你花很多时间在社交媒体上,你会在寻找手机时要考虑到这一点!
 
大小:特别是在中国,超大的手机正变得越来越普遍。但很多人仍希望他们的手机能够放进他们的口袋或小包里。请务必提前决定好你想要什么尺寸的手机,这样你最终不会因为它尺寸太大不方便而讨厌一只大手机。
 
平台:现在市场上充斥着为您的手机设计的不同的平台。如苹果产品iPhone使用的标志性的iOS平台。然而,有很多人更喜欢或更习惯安卓的系统设置,如小米手机和三星手机,或新微软的系统。在你决定使用哪个品牌之前做一些调查研究,并找出哪个平台更吸引你。
 
使用频率:你是无时无刻都把手机揣在手里,每天每一分钟都依靠它的一个狂热手机用户吗?如果是,在购买之前你会需要考虑手机的电池寿命,以确保你物有所值。这会是一个真正让你为停止忙碌的一天而四处寻找的一个发泄出口。
 
 
*提示:如果你是一个狂热手机用户,考虑购买一个旅行充电器。这样你的手机不在家里也能充上电,当你在旅途中或在工作中都能给你的手机充电。
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|10 Designers All Women Should Know
 
Yves Saint Laurent
 
10 Designers that all women should know
 
10. Yves Saint Laurent
Laurent, 1936-2008, was a French designer famous for his iconic reimagining of ‘masculine’ clothes and tailoring them into beautiful pieces for women.  He was well known for pushing the boundaries of what was then common in the fashion world and was the first to incorporate Non-European cultural references into his clothes as well as the first designer to start hiring non-white models to walk his runway shows.  Perhaps his most famous contribution to the fashion world was his introduction of women’s ‘power suits.’ 
“The most beautiful clothes that can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves. But for those who haven't had the fortune of finding this happiness, I am there.” ― Yves Saint-Laurent
 
Pierre Cardin
 
9.Pierre Cardin
Cardin, born in 1922 in Italy, was most influential in the late 20th century for his clothes that looked as though they may have come out of the 25th century.  His designs stunned with their futuristic appearances and geometric feel.  He was one of the first designers that displayed unisex styled clothing. 
 
Tom Ford
 
8. Tom Ford
Ford is an American designer most who received the 2000 Best International Designer award. He famously claims that originally he had gone to school to be an actor, and fell into the world of fashion design.  In his career Ford has been creative director of YSL and Gucci and in currently starting out a second career as a film director. 
“I do struggle because I’m attracted to beautiful things, yet at the same time I am actually very aware, in some sense, their lack of value and that the most important things in life are your connections to other people.” ― Tom Ford
 
Christian Dior
 
7.Christian Dior
The French designer, 1905-1957, is most famous for discovering the ‘New Look’ silhouette and revolutionizing women’s clothing in the years after World War II. 
“Women are most fascinating between the ages of 35 and 40 after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass 40, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely.” ― Christian Dior 
 
Ralph Lauren
 
6. Ralph Lauren
With a net worth now nearing $7.9 billion, the American designer, born in 1939, was the creator of the iconic polo shirt, a staple that has remained nearly unchanged and is still a classic piece today.  The polo logo first appeared in 1970 on Lauren’s runway suits and on the classic polo in ’72.
“Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” ― Ralph Lauren
 
Versace
 
5. Donatella Versace
After her brother, Giovanni ‘Gianni’ Versace’s, murder in 1977 the Italian born designer took over her brother’s semi-known label and made it into something iconic.  A relatively recent addition to the fashion world, the now 66 year old mounted her very first runway show ever in 2000 and since then has made the Versace line into something covered internationally.
“Creativity comes from a conflict of ideas” ― Donatella Versace
 
Calvin Klein
 
4. Calvin Klein
The American designer launched his brand, Calvin Klein Inc., now a household name internationally, in 1968 and holds the honor of being the first ever designer to receive the Outstanding Design Award in Men and Women’s Clothing from the CDFA.

Armani, an Italian designer born in 1934, is particularly noted in the fashion world for his menswear.  The clean, tailored lines of his suits quickly made classics, the precipice of suit design. Armani is also credited with pioneering the modern red carpet fashions that we see gracing the pages of every magazine today.
“Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered” ― Giorgio Armani
 
Donna Karan
 
2. Donna Karan
The lone-man behind the building of DKNY, a brand that has become an empire, this American designer was born into a fashion family and always knew that was where she belonged.  After high school the New York native attended Parsons School of designs and after working for many other notable names in fashion, quickly built herself an empire.

And finally, the veritable queen of the fashion world
 
Coco Chanel
 
1. Coco Chanel
This French designer is perhaps the most famous name in the fashion world. Born 1883 and dying 1971 she began the Chanel brand, which still maintains its elite status in the high fashion world today. Chanel popularized the sporty, casual chic look for women and completely revolutionized the idea of women’s modesty by liberating everyone from the constraints of the classic corset silhouette in the post World War I era.  
“It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.” ― Coco Chanel

“我一直单身也许并非偶然。如果要一个男人和我一起生活可能会非常难,除非他非常强大。如果他比我强,我将无法和他生活......我既不聪明也不笨,但我不认为我是一个平庸的人。我不是一个女商人而一直在从商,我曾经爱过但不是一个为爱而生的女人。我曾爱过两个男人,我想,他们会记得我,在人间或者天堂,因为男人会永远记住使得他们担心和不安的女人。我在考虑他人和生活方面做到了最好,我没有严格的戒律,但我有对正义的见解。“― Coco Chanel
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|How to dress your own age
 
 
Growing up is beautiful. You attain freedom, amass more and more cool stuff, make money to travel and get a firmer grip on who you are. Ageing does have its downsides too though, which need to be embraced as much as the positives. 
 
 
One of the biggest mistakes women make as they grow older is not adapting their fashion sense to suit them. After a lady hits a certain age, the mini shorts and fishnet tights need to be thrown away, and the t-shirts with the cute animé characters may need to be given to a younger family member to enjoy. 
 
 
There is nothing worse than a forty year old woman trying to dress cute. You are sexy and independent. Not twelve and desperate for a Sailor Moon costume. With so much pressure to look and act young, women try to cling to things that didn't even look to great when they were young – plush character bags, cat ears, ice cream cone earrings – to show their care free and youthful spirit.
 
 
A woman with a career, money and culture doesn't want to look cute. Say goodbye to the tights with cats on and opt for a more classy look. There's so much you can wear now that wouldn't have suited you as a teen or twenty-something. If Audrey Hepburn wouldn't be seen dead in it, neither should you.
 
 
逐渐地成熟是美妙的。你获得了自由,积累了越来越多的好东西,挣钱去旅行,而且越来越确信你是谁。不过,年龄的增长也有负面的影响,需要我们尽可能积极地去拥抱这种改变。
 
 
一个女人最容易犯的之一错误就是,不能随着年龄的增长来选择相应的时尚品味。当一位女士到了一定的年龄,她们的超短裤和渔网紧身衣就该被丢掉了,而印着卡通形象的短袖也该留给年轻的家庭成员来享用了。
 
 
还有一种比四十岁的女人扮可爱更糟糕的事情。你非常的性感和独立。再也不是渴望有一身美少女战士服的年龄了。但是在带着想要看起来更年轻的压力,一些女人就常常执念于一些即使年轻也驾驭不了的东西:毛茸茸的包包,猫耳发卡,冰激凌耳坠,来显示她们的满不在乎和年轻的精神。
 
 
有着自己的职业,积蓄和文化的女人不需要看起来可爱。和猫脸紧身衣说拜拜,选择更经典的外形。许多你现在可以穿得服饰并不适合你年轻或二十岁的时候。奥黛丽·赫本永远定格在了二十岁,而你不应当这样。
 
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Style
 
 
Style (noun)-a mode of fashion, as in dress, especially good or approved fashion; elegance; smartness
 
 
Style is perhaps the most multi-faceted, fact less topic of this entire book. Style is based not off of laws but around the opinions of the few who study it. That being said, there are very definitive guidelines, and while your style is your own, there are definitely some serious Do’s and some perhaps more serious Don’ts! 
 
 
Developing Your Personal Style: 
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” ― Coco Chanel 
 
1. Personal style is very important. It creates a first impression to those around you and tells people something about you before you have even been introduced. You can use it to stand out, or to blend it, but essentially personal style and how you appear to the wider world defines what kind of person you are socially. 
When beginning the search for your personal style, the first and most important things to think about are:
 
2. Your age! You must be aware of your age, and not fall into the traps of dressing younger and looking immature and unreliable, or dressing older, and looking boring and matronly. 
 
 
3. Your occupation! Your job will, in part, no matter how much you dread it doing so, affect the way you dress. If you are working in a professional setting you will need to look clean cut and will not be able to run around in torn up jeans and crop tops. 
 
4. Your lifestyle! As great as stilettos may make your legs look, small town girls will stick out like a sore thumb in these shoes, and walking on anything other than pavement or floors will be very difficult. Know what type of lifestyle you live and make sure you are dressing appropriately. 
 
 
5. Your goals! There is a say, dress for the job you want. If you are hoping to climb the corporate ladder at work, dress the part, showing your sophistication and beauty! If you want to get fired, feel free to wear your pajamas and slippers!
 
HINT: Developing your personal style is not just about going out a buying a ton of clothing pieces you like. In order to use your wardrobe to its maximum potential, make sure you buy lots of basic (jeans, black pants, plain but nice shirts). These kinds of pieces will go with anything making your statement ‘style’ pieces pop and allowing you to use them in different ways for a more versatile sophisticated wardrobe. This is a much better solution than you ending up with one terrific outfit that you love, but no other way to wear the individual items in it.
 
 
Fashion Faux Pas to Avoid:
 
1. Bra Straps! 
Nothing looks less professional than easily visible bra straps. For difficult tops invest in a well fitting strapless bra, or in the case of a racer-back top, try pinning the straps together at the back so they aren’t visible. 
 
2. Panty Lines!
What may have started out as a perfect outfit can be absolutely ruined by the distracting outline of your undergarments being clearly visible.  Make sure you are wearing thinner underwear, maybe lace or a thin elastic ‘invisible’ pair, when you are dressing in tight bottoms to avoid this embarrassing occurance.
 
 
3. Daytime Eveningwear! 
Nothing is more awkward than seeing someone dressed to the nine, walking around town during the day.  Just because your clothes are fancier does not mean they are more fashionable. 
 
4. Too Much Bling!
When in doubt, avoid rhinestones!  There are many styles that make a little sparkle look great but when even a little bit overdone appears more cheap and tasteless than looking like you came off worse in a fight with a hoard of bedazzlers. 
 
 
5. Too Much Skin!
If you are worried that you are showing too much skin for a given occasion, than you probably are. Tiny shorts and crop tops do not a classy woman make.
 
6. Ill Fitting Styles!
Always, always, always, always, try everything on before leaving the store with it.  It will look much more put together wearing a slightly less bold outfit that fits you exceptionally well, than wearing ill-fitting clothes.
 
 
7. Accessory Overload!
Make sure with accessories that you don’t overdo it!  An outfit should compliment your accessories rather than battle with them for attention.
 
8. Un-walkable Shoes!
No matter how expensive your brand new stilettos might be, don’t wear them unless you are sure you will be able to walk around without looking like you might fall down at any moment. Nobody will notice your killer outfit if they have to hold you up all day.
 
 
9. Wrinkles!
Make sure everything you wear is pressed and wrinkle free.  Nothing can rumple up a classic combination more than a nice piece of clothing that looks like it’s been used as a pillow. 
 
“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn” ― Orson Welles
 
 
风格(名词):时尚的方式之一,在穿衣打扮中,特指非常好的或者被认可的时尚;优雅,智慧。
 
风格或许是整本书里最多面性的,最形而上的一个概念。风格不依据具体的规则,却契合于少数研究它的人的观点。然而,它也有着非常具体的指南,虽然你的风格你说了算,但是这里仍旧有一些严肃的“可行”,与更严肃的“不可行”等教条。
 
 
找到自己的个性风格
 
“低劣的打扮令别人记住这身衣着,无可挑剔的打扮使别人记住这位女人。”——可可·香奈儿
 
1. 个人风格非常重要。它直接影响人们对你的第一印象,并在你做自我介绍之前无声地传达关于你的信息。你可以藉此出类拔萃,也可以因之泯然大众,但是,本质上你的个人风格,或者说你展现给世界的外表定义了你在社会中是什么样的人。
 
2. 当开始寻找你的个人风格的时候,首先需要考虑的重要因素有:
 
3. 你的年龄。要考虑年龄的因素,不要陷入打扮年轻的陷阱,而使自己看起来不成熟或者不靠谱。抑或是打扮得太老,而看起来无趣又过于稳重。
 
 
4. 你的职业。你的职业会部分地影响你的着装,不管你如何讨厌你的工作。如果你的工作非常的职业化,那么你就不得不干净整洁,再也不能穿着破洞牛仔裤到处跑。
 
5. 你的风格。穿着细高跟鞋会使双腿显得苗条修长,然而在一个小城镇穿这样的鞋会显得特别突兀,而且除了人行道和地板,在其他地方上行走会非常困难。所以要清楚你的生活风格是什么样子的,并确保穿着得体。
 
6. 你的目标。有人说,为你想要的工作而打扮。如果你想在工作中一步步晋升,那么就通过穿着打扮,来突显你的智慧与美貌。如何想要被炒,那么尽情地穿睡衣拖拉板吧。
 
 
指南:发展你的个人风格不是意味着出去买一堆堆喜欢的衣服。也为了最大程度地利用你的衣橱,请多买些基础实用的衣服吧(牛仔裤,黑短裤,朴素而大方的衬衣)。这些类型的衣服更加的百搭,也可以让你有更大的空间来发挥想象,声明自己的风格。这比你买一个自己喜爱的非常漂亮的衣服,却没有和它相搭配的单品要好得多。
 
 
需要避免的一些时尚失礼:
 
1. 胸罩绷带! 
没有什么比露在外面的胸罩带子更让你显得不职业化了。可以试试穿一条合身的抹胸,如果穿的是跑步背心,那就把两条带子扎在一起。
 
2. 内裤线
一条完美的紧身裤绝对可以被清晰可见的内裤线给瞬间毁掉。确保在穿紧身裤的时候,要身着更纤细的内衣,可以是蕾丝的或者薄薄的松紧内衣,以避免尴尬的发生。
 
3. 白日晚礼服
还有什么比大白天身着盛装在大街上晃悠令人尴尬的吗?衣着精美并不代表你就比别人时尚。
 
 
4. 太过于珠光宝气
如果拿捏不准,那就不要戴人造钻石!很多的一些风格可以使一些珠宝起到锦上添花的效果,然而稍有过度,就会显得比一群刚下飞机的穿得琳琅满目的人更加没品。
 
5. 暴露过度皮肤
如果你觉得在某个场合暴露了太多皮肤,那么差不多你就想对了。小短裤和露脐短上衣很少能塑造经典女人的形象。
 
6. 不合身的风格
千万千万要在出商店之前试一试要买的衣服。有时候穿着稍微保守一点总比不合身强。
 
   
7. 过多首饰
过犹不及,衣服是用来衬托你的首饰的,而不是相互打架争抢注意力。
   
8. 不能行走的鞋
不管你的新鞋有多贵,如果穿上它就摇摇欲坠寸步难行,那就脱下来吧。如果你得整天有你扶着你走,那么没人会在意你的新鞋有多贵。
 
9. 褶皱
确保你穿的衣服平平整整没有褶皱。没有什么比一件看起来像是被用来当枕头使过的衣服更煞风景了。
 
 
“风格就是明明知道自己是谁,自己说什么,但却毫不在乎这些。”—— 奥逊·威尔斯
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Around Town
 
 
Being a classy Chinese lady who keeps her cool shouldn't be something you just turn on at networking events and glitzy dinners – it should be a lifestyle. It's easy to be courteous to people you want to impress or who you need something from. What distinguishes class from creep is the ability to be accommodating to everyone, from waiters to business associates to cleaners to kings. As Morrissey says 'It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes strength to be gentle and kind'. And this is what everyone should aim for.
 
 
Showing respect and etiquette around town doesn't mean being a pushover or letting everyone in front of you in the queue until the store closes. It means doing little things that aren't really that difficult but which can make everyone's life easier.
 
 
Transport
1. Let everyone off the metro/bus/boat before you get on to avoid having to push and shove your way in.
2. Always offer your seat to someone who may need it, particularly those with special needs, pregnant women, the elderly and those with children. Nothing screams unattractive and uncaring more than a girl sitting down when someone clearly needs the space – no matter how beautiful you are or good your posture.
3. Use earphones when on public transport. You might care about what happens in the latest episode of your favourite soap but, honestly, nobody else does. The same goes for games on your phone. Either plug it in or turn the sound off.
4. Similarly, if you need to talk on the phone – or even to someone next to you – keep it down. 
5. If notice yourself breaking any of these rules, remember to apologize.
 
 
In Town
1. Stand on the right hand side of the escalator so people in a rush can get past easily (this is common in many places, including Hong Kong, where standing on the left can be considered extremely rude).
2. Hold doors open for people behind you. If someone does this for you, smile and say thank you.
3. Be polite to those working in the service industry. Don't shoot the messenger if things aren't going your way. Say thank you after a transaction NOTE: In some places, particularly English speaking countries, it is quite normal for people to say thank you five or six times in the course of paying for something.
 
 
作为一名经典的中国女人,保持优雅的一面不应当仅仅在社交场合和晚宴上展示,这应当是你的日常生活风格。对于你看重的人,或者你有所相求的人彬彬有礼相对容易。然而高下立断就看一个人如何对待他周围的人,包括从服务员,清洁工,到商业同行,和一国之首。墨里西曾说“笑容易,恨容易,要做到彬彬有礼却得花大力气。”这就是人人都要努力追求的境界。
 
 
尊重他人,礼貌待人并不意味着就做一个软柿子,对每一个排在你身后的人都礼让三先直到商店关门,而是意味着做一些力所能及的事,从而使这个世界更加美好。
 
交通礼仪
1. 先下后上,避免挤挤抗抗。
2. 把位置让给可能有需要的人,特别是孕妇,老人和抱小孩的乘客。占着座位不让给有需要的人,没有什么行为比这更能让一个女孩顿失优雅与智慧了,不管她多漂亮,占座的姿势多美丽。
3. 在公共交通上要戴耳机。你也许对你最爱的肥皂剧更新到第几集很感兴趣,但是,实话说别人就不一定关心。同样在手机上玩游戏也是一样的。要么戴耳机要么把声音调小。
4. 同样,如果对着手机说话,或者对着邻座说话,请小声点。
5. 如果发觉自己破坏了什么规矩,请道歉。
 
 
 
城市礼节
1. 乘扶梯时靠右站,以便赶时间的人能从左边顺利通过扶梯。(这一点在多数地方都适用,包括香港,站在右边会被认为非常没有礼貌。)
2. 为身后的人扶一下门。如果有人这样为你做,请报以微笑,并说声谢谢。
3. 对待服务行业的人要礼貌。如果服务有些慢请不要对大声呼喊。在交易结束后请道谢。在许多说英语国家,在结账时说个四五遍谢谢是非常正常的。
 
 
 
  ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Overcoming Jealousy
 
 
Jealousy is a universal feeling few people ever want to admit to having, whether it is sibling, coworker, partner, celebrity, book character, etc.
 
 
Breathe and think about why you feel jealous. Don’t be hard on yourself. Jealousy is normal. If you have just gone through a bad divorce and your friend is gushing about how her boyfriend has proposed to her, of course you don’t want to hear about it. Smile politely and don’t be negative. Try to change the subject.
 
 
Consider being jealous of someone else’s achievements the motivation you need to improve yourself. When someone else is successful, think about your own goals and try to work hard to achieve them. It’s never too late to take a shot.
 
 
Chances are the person you’re jealous of isn’t that great either. Everyone has their own problems. Sure, Maria might have a cool car but mosquitoes think she’s the second coming. Nobody has a perfect life. 
 
 
On the flip side, don’t try to inspire jealousy in others. Be humble. Bragging about success over and over and over and over again is no fun for anyone. After all, people who are jealous of you are going to find it much harder to like you. 
 
 
嫉妒心是一个人们普遍不愿承认自己有的普遍心理。对于不论是兄弟姐妹,同事,伙伴,名人,抑或是一本书中的人物,嫉妒心理都是人之常情。
 
 
深呼吸,想想为什么自己会觉得嫉妒。不要跟自己过意不去。嫉妒心也是正常的心理。如果当你刚刚很不愉快地离了婚,而你的朋友却在一边一直滔滔不绝地讲她男朋友是如何向她求婚的,当然你现在没心情听这个,但是礼貌地微笑,态度不要消极,试试换个话题吧。
 
 
要把对他人成绩的嫉妒看作是提高自己的动力。当看见其他人成功了,想想你自己的目标,加倍努力实现它吧。现在开始努力,为时不晚。
 
 
不过幸好我们嫉妒的人都不是一点瑕疵都没有的。每个人都有自己的问题。当然,玛利亚也许有一辆炫酷的车,但是蚊子们却把她当成了它们的救世主。没有人的生活是完美的。
 
 
反而言之,千万不能去挑拨别人的嫉妒心。谦虚一点。在任何人面前一遍遍不停地吹嘘自己的成功都很令人讨厌。总之,嫉妒你的人很难喜欢你。
 
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool & Chinese|Unpleasant Situations
 
 
You may never like everyone: Amy will always laugh a little too loudly and Dan just says the word ‘typical’ too much. You can avoid wanting to have lunch with them as much as you like but disliking someone doesn’t mean having to be rude to them. Particularly in the workplace, avoiding conflict and dealing with problems in a private, sensitive manner, is best for everyone.
 
Tips
-Avoid rivalries
-Don’t gossip
-Control you temper
-Treat people fairly
 
 
That said, sometimes you simply have to stand up for yourself, for your ethics or on someone else’s behalf. People can push it too far sometimes and you have to do something about it. Remember, it’s okay to be the person in the room who refuses to go along with everyone else if you have a good reason not to. History books are filled by the stories of people who went against the majority.
 
Unpleasant situations come in many forms – complaining about someone’s behaviour, having to reject an invitation, spending time with people you don’t want to. With a calm demeanour and a willingness to comprise these things can turn out much better than you spent all night thinking it would.
 
When dealing with an unpleasant situation, it’s important to take a step back and think. Sleep on it if you must. Sometimes it might be better to pick your battles. Yes, that’s terribly unfair advice but the world isn’t always fair. Accusing someone of bad conduct – even if they did it – can reflect badly on you, and if it’s an employer you are risking your job. Only you can decide whether the issue is important enough.
 
 
-Stay calm. She who shouts loses. 
-Air any grievances in private. Confronting your mother-in-law about stealing your cutlery in front of the entire family is not going to work.
-For work related problems, it may be acceptable to sue the coward’s weapon: email. In most situations not confronting someone directly is seen badly, but certain cases it is useful to leave a paper trail. 
-If you’re in the wrong, apologize – and mean it.
-Come prepared with a solution. It’s easy to moan about problems. But they’re more likely to get solved if you come with an idea.
 
Don’t
-Spread gossip about the person. Be respectful.
-Rolls your eyes or shake your head.
-If you agree to a compromise then you have to agree to it. If in doubt, ask for a little time to think before accepting.
 
If you’re the one being complained about or confronted be courteous and listen to what the other person is saying. Don’t be too defensive and try to talk through the problem together.
 
International Tip
In Chinese culture it is considered okay to smile in an uncomfortable situation. However, in many western countries this is thought to be incredibly rude as people will think you are not taking the issue seriously.
 
 
不是每个人都是你所喜欢的:艾米总是笑声太大,丹总是爱说“典型的”。你可以不和他们一起吃午饭,但是不喜欢不代表就可以对人粗鲁。特别是在办公室,避免冲突,私下解决问题总归是一种合适的态度。
 
小贴士
-避免树立对手
-不造谣生非
-控制情绪
-公平待人
 
 
有人说,有些时候你必须为自己,为你的良知,或者为他人而站出来。当有些人有的时候做得太过分的时候,我们就不得不做一些事情。请牢记,当你有充分理由拒绝顺从,你就可以拒绝。历史书上到处是与多数人为敌的人的传奇故事。
 
不愉快的情况各有各的不同——抱怨他人的行为,不得不拒绝一个邀请,和讨厌的人在一块等等。用平和的心态和积极妥协的态度来处理问题,比自己为一件事纠结一晚上更好。
 
当处理不愉快的时候,重要的是能够退一步想想。如有必要,可以考虑一天再做决定。不过有时选择迎接挑战会是更好的办法。的确,这是个非常不公平的建议,然而这个世界从来就是不公平的。指责别人的坏行为,也会对自己造成坏的影响,如果你是个职员,那么你就是在拿自己的工作来冒险。不过也只有你自己才能决定什么重要什么不重要。
 
 
-保持冷静。善战者不怒。
-所有不平私下解决。当着全家的面揭发岳母偷你东西并不体面。
-对于工作问题,利用懦夫的工具Email也许可以令人接受。大多数情况下,不敢面对面解决问题都是不和时宜的,然而有些问题只要修书一封还是挺管用的。
-如果你错了,请道歉——发自内心地。
-有备而来。谁都会抱怨,但是带着解决方案过来,结果就会大不一样。
 
 
不要:
-散布谣言,要尊重人。
-翻白眼,摇头。
-如果你同意妥协,那就妥协。如果有所迟疑,想想再做决定。
 
如果有其他人向你抱怨,那就有礼貌地听他说。不要过度的防卫,或者与之争论是非。
 
跨文化的小贴士
中国文化里,在不愉快的场景下微笑是可以被接受的。然而,在许多西方国家,这被看作是极端的粗鲁,其他人会觉得你对待问题非常不认真。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool&Chinese|How to Say No
 
 
In contemporary China, full of attractions, entertainment, lust, luxury products and possibilities blossom, 4 reasons you may be avoiding saying ‘no’ to something:
 
 
1. Wanting to help-You are a nice person! You don’t want to let a friend down! However what you need to realize is that not being able to do something for someone when you have a good reason does not make you a bad friend. If they think that then they don’t deserve your friendship anyway!
 
 
2. Afraid of being rude-A fear of rudeness is a common reason to not put your foot down to something that you otherwise wouldn’t do. However this is a contrived social etiquette rule. You shouldn’t end up getting yourself into an uncomfortable situation because you were too polite to say no. 
 
 
3. Fear of conflict-If you are one of those people who shies away from conflict you may find yourself agreeing with something that doesn’t suit you just to avoid an argument. However, by doing this you aren’t being fair to yourself. This is something you are just going to have to get over to make yourself happier in the end.
 
 
4. Fear of lost opportunities-You may fear that if you say no to something now, the opportunity will never come around again and you will miss out. However, if the time isn’t right for you to take something don’t take it. An opportunity will be ruined more by you being overwhelmed at having accepted something you should have said no to, than if you simply declined to accept. 
 
 
5 Scripted out ways for you to say ‘No’: 
 
1. “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
This is one example of a perfectly polite decline. It doesn’t sound like you are ungrateful or rude, it simply sounds like you have too much on your plate to be committing to something else. 
 
 
2. “Now is not a good time. How about we reconnect at ______ time?”
This is a perfect way to politely turn down plan propositions from a friend. It shows that you are still interested in the idea, you just need to find a time that works better.
 
 
3. “I’d love to do this but…”
This response shows enthusiasm in the offer while making it clear that you simply can’t do something. 
 
 
4. “I’m not the best person to help you with this. Why don’t you try______?”
This statement offers a solution to the questioner’s problem while making it clear that it isn’t for you.
 
 
5. “I’m sorry, I can’t”
Even if you aren’t sorry that you can’t do something, you should make it sound as though you were interested so as not to add insult to injury and risk offending the questioner.
 
 
怎样礼貌地说不”
 
在现代的中国,到处充斥着诱惑,愉悦,欲望,奢侈品和各种可能性:
 
1. 想帮助他人:你是个好人!你不想让你的朋友失望!然而你需要知道,不能够为一些人做某些事,并不代表着你就是个坏朋友。如果他们认为你是坏朋友,那么他们就不配你对他们的友情。
 
2. 担心自己显得粗鲁:担心自己显得粗鲁,是一个勉强自己做不能做的事情的普遍理由。虽然这是一条勉强的社交礼仪规则。你不能因自己过渡礼貌而使自己陷入两难之地。
 
3. 害怕与人争论:如果你是那种羞于与人争执的人,你会发现仅仅是为了不与人争执,你会勉为其难地做着各种事情。然而,做这些东西对你来说并不公平。这就是你需要克服的东西,以使自己有一个安心的结局。
 
4. 担心失去机会:你可能会担心如果你对一些事说不,机会就会稍纵即逝。然而,如果时机不对请不要索取。一个应该拒绝的机会也有可能因为你的接受而得不偿失。
 
 
说“不”的五个演示台词:
 
1. “我恐怕不能够做这件事,因为我现在刚好有一些要紧的事。”
这是一个很完美的礼貌拒绝人的例子。而且也不会使自己显得很不领情或者很粗鲁,只是听起来你有太多的事情需要处理。
 
2. “现在可能时间不太合适。你觉得我们换一个时间怎么样?”
这也是一个礼貌拒绝朋友的提议的好方法。这句话表现出你对朋友的提议仍然感兴趣,只是你需要找个更合适的时间。
 
3. “我非常乐意,但是…”
这个回答即表达了你对提议的热情,又很清楚地表明你只是办不到这件事。
 
4. “我还不是最适合帮你这个忙的人选,你可以试试某某?”
这个说法不但给提问者提供了解决方案,而且清楚地表明你不适合做这件事。
 
5. “很抱歉,我做不到。”
即使你真的不会因为办不到某事而感到抱歉,也要尽量使自己看起来并不想雪上加霜,或者冒犯提问者。
 
 
 
ETIQUETTE|Cool&Chinese|Staying Calm

Staying calm in a stressful or aggravating situation is exceedingly difficult but extremely important. Losing your temper never helps a situation, often results in repercussions and will definitely affect the way other people see you. With all these downsides why is it still so hard to keep your cool? Especially in China, where you come across yelling taxi drivers and other mundane irritations on a daily basis.
 
Here are several ways to stay calm in a long or short time perspective:
 
Staying calm through long-term stress: Everyone in the world goes through periods of time where they are feeling overworked, overwhelmed or simply burned out. Learning to deal with this type of situations is more important and more difficult than dealing with short-term stressors. Here are 10 tips to help you overcome long-term stress in the big Chinese cities
 
1. Avoid drinking beverages high in caffeine
2. Lighting a candle with a soothing scent like lavender or cinnamon has a calming effect
3. Start reading an amusing book
4. Choose the un-caffeinated or herbal tea
5. Do not spend too much time with your pet indoors: going out for some fresh air and engaging with nature is a better option.
6. Start a journal to organize your thoughts
7. Practice yoga more
8. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and take a power nap when you can
9. Join a gym-the endorphins released when exercising will help to combat stress
10. Try meditation or sitting down for 15 minutes a day and just thinking about something nice, make peace with the past and your foes.
 
Staying calm in the moment: Dealing with an aggravating situation like a calm adult is a very useful skill to have. Here are 9 tips to help you avoid losing your temper with a high-speed modern lifestyle in the big Chinese cities:
 
1. Take three, slow, deep breaths
2. Count backwards in your head from ten to one.
3. Ask yourself ‘Will this argument solve anything?’ ‘What is the best possible outcome of this argument for both participants? 'How can we get there?’
4. Find a quote that means something to you and think of it in a stressful moment
5. Avoid using sarcasm or making unnecessary jokes of the situation
6. If what you want to say won’t directly improve or solve the situation, don’t say it
7. Think before you speak
8. Don’t ever raise your voice even if the person you are speaking to does
9. If there is no way around it, remove yourself from the situation before you say something you won’t be able to take back

在充满压力和高度紧张的情况下保持冷静是极度困难且非常重要的。脾气失控并不能对情况有所帮助,并常常会起到反作用,而且绝对会影响别人对你的看法。有这么多的副作用为什么还是难以保持冷静呢?尤其是在中国,当你遇到一个大吼大叫的出租车司机和日常其他的烦恼。
 
以下是针对长期与短期情况的使自己冷静的方式:
 
在长期压力的情况下保持冷静:世界上每个人都会有经历感觉劳累,不堪重负或者精疲力尽的时期。学习如何处理这种类型的情况非常重要,并且比处理短期压力的难度更大。这里有10个提示,帮助你在中国的一些大城市里克服长期的压力:
 
1. 避免喝含咖啡因的茶或饮品。
2. 点燃一支熏衣草香或者肉桂香味的蜡烛会有保持镇静的效果。
3. 读一本有趣的书。
4. 喝不含咖啡因的茶,比如草本类的茶
5. 不要和自己的宠物整天待在一起,出去转转,呼吸新鲜空气,亲近大自然。
6. 开始一段旅程,或者整理一下你的思绪。
7. 多上一些瑜伽课。
8. 保证足够的睡眠,如果可以,小憩一下。
9. 参与体育运动,内啡肽的分泌能帮助对抗压力。
10. 尝试冥想,或者每天坐下15分钟想一想美好的事情,与你的过去和敌人达成和解。
 
在应激情况下保持冷静:在紧急的情况下像个成年人一样冷静是一种非常有用的技能。这里有9个提示,帮助你在面对当下中国大城市的快节奏生活时,避免情绪失控:
 
1. 数三下,慢下来,深呼吸。
2. 在脑海里从10数到1.
3. 问问自己“争论可以解决问题吗?”,然后“对于争论双方来说什么是最好的结果,以及我们如何达成?”
4. 找到一句对自己来说意味着些什么的名言,在紧张情况下默念一下。
5. 在紧张情况下,尽量不要讽刺和开不必要的玩笑。
6. 如果你想说的不能直接弥补或解决当前情况,那就不要说。
7. 三思而后言。
8. 不要提高音调,即使跟你说话的人已经这样做了。
9. 如果没有办法打圆场,在说错话覆水难收之前离开。

ETIQUETTE|Cool&Chinese|Dealing with Different Cultures
 
©Édouard Manet
 
1. Examine your personal beliefs and attitudes about religion, ethnicity, culture and even politics. By looking at yourself you will be able to pinpoint where your opinion may differ from other people from your country or a foreigner. If you are truly concerned about clashes of opinion and cultural differences, try to steer any conversations away from topics you feel may cause a rift.
 
2. Educate yourself. While this should be true of anyone regardless of the company you keep, it is especially important when dealing with an international community. Stay up to date on world news and politics. Know which topics may be touchy for some and understand the differences between different religions and beliefs. Keep yourself in the know so you never end up sounding like you have no clue what you are talking about when trying to.
 
3. Identify your personal style of communication and consider how this may come across to someone from a different country. Likewise, stay alert to those who don’t understand you. For example, if you find that you often make jokes to lighten up a tense situation, consider that many people may consider this rude and think that you are not taking it seriously.
 
4. Adapting: one suggestion to dealing with someone who is speaking to you in their second language is to learn the so called-‘second degree’. By examining your own style of communications you will be able to more accurately work through any misunderstandings that arise.
 
5. Avoid stereotyping: While you may assume you know how to communicate with someone based on what you have heard about them, make sure you aren’t putting a person into a stereotype that doesn’t fit them. It is very important to get to know people individually rather than basing how you interact with them off of preconceived notions.
 
6. Don’t be afraid to ask questions: You should know that, any foreigner living in another country is used to being asked questions about where they come from. In fact most would prefer someone ask about something they are unsure of, rather than say something tasteless.
 
7. Don’t be overly critical if you find something strange: Being a part of an international community means you need to have an open mind. Look at things that are different with a sense of humor rather than with judgment.
 
8. Be relaxed: Don’t stress it too much. It will make people /colleagues uncomfortable if you are freaking out about talking to them. Keep it light!
 
9. Accept that mistakes will happen and learn from them: There is no set script on how to learn to interact with someone from the same country or a different country. All you can do is be open and friendly and see where it goes.

通常文化差异是一个棘手的问题,特别是在工作环境中。沟通误解很常见,无知或者无味意外出现的风险也非常高。特别是在中国,随着经济的发展,外国人群体迅速地增长,所以,对于如何解决在当下中国可能会发生的问题,保持开放的思想和理解力是非常重要的。下面是如何在中国的国际环境下表达自己的9条建议。
 
1.审视自己关于宗教,种族,文化甚至政治的个人信仰和态度。通过审视自己,你就会发现这些观点你与其他人或外国人是相左的。如果你真的在乎观点的碰撞和文化的差异,请试着把有可能导致不愉快的话题引向别处。
 
2. 自我学习:这应该是一个放之四海而皆有的能力,特别是在与国际化的群体打交道的时候。保持对世界新闻与时事的知悉是必要的。知道什么话题对于哪些人来说是敏感的,并了解不同宗教和信仰之间的不同。保持知悉,以避免在和人聊天的时候自己一问三不知。
 
3.认知自己的沟通风格,并在与其他不同国家的人交流的时候顾及他们的感受。同样地,也要注意不能很好理解你的表达方式的人。比如,如果你发现自己经常用玩笑来化解僵局,那么你就要考虑有些人会觉得你的做法轻率,不严肃。
 
4.自适应:当和你说话的人使用的是他们的第二语言,他们也许并不能理解你的第二层意思,学会所谓的“第二学位”。通过审视自己的交流风格,你就能更准确地解决各种沟通中所发生的误解。
 
5. 避免刻板印象:也许通过对一些人的道听途说的了解,你会认为自己知道如何跟这些人沟通。但是我们要确保我们没有为有些人安上一些并不符合他们的刻板印象。重要的是要从个体的角度来理解一个人,而不是带着先入为主的观念来与他们接触。
 
6.不要害怕问问题:你应该知道,任何一个在其他国家居住的外国人都习惯于别人问关于他们从哪里来的问题。事实上相比那些无趣的固定问题,很多人更喜欢被问到一些他们也不确定的问题。
 
7. 如果发现一些奇怪的事情,不要过分苛责:作为国际群体的必要条件之一就是,保持开放的思想。带着一些幽默感来看待事情比过多的评判更好。
 
8. 放松:不要太过于紧张。如果急匆匆地和他们说话,这样会使得身边的人或同事感到有压力。试着放轻松一些。
 
9. 接受可能会发生的错误,并从中吸取经验:关于如何与相同或不同国家的人互动,并没有固定的脚本来学习。所有我们能做的就是保持开放而友好的心态,并善于去观察和学习。

ETIQUETTE | Introducing
 
YiZhou by YiZhouStudio
 
With the things a girl has to deal with these days – boyfriends, manicures, careers and parties. It's no wonder that sometimes all we want to do is curl up in bed with some chocolate, a glass of wine and a good book. Navigating the various situations we find ourselves in can be a challenge, yet that challenge can be made all the more easy with a few tips and tricks. 'Cool and Chinese' is here to tell you not only why you should be out enjoying yourself but also how. From etiquette to sun cream, gala dinners to breaking up, 'Cool and Chinese' is the guide by TheMaker every sophisticated woman needs, in order to help her conduct herself in any situation, while staying true to her contemporary Chinese lifestyle.
 
想象一下,一个女孩在一天所要面对的这些事情——男朋友、美甲、工作和派对——你就能理解,为什么有时候我们宁愿蜷缩在床上,来一些巧克力就着一杯红酒,去阅读一本好书。如何在每一种自己所身处的场合里如鱼得水,对我们来说都会是一个挑战。然而,如果有适当的窍门和技巧,面对挑战我们就会变得游刃有余。在这里,COOL & CHINESE这个栏目不仅仅告诉你为什么要走出闺房享受生活,并且告诉你该怎样做。从礼仪,到涂抹防晒霜,从参加晚宴,到结束晚宴,这本书以当代中国为背景,作为每一位精致女人的指南,帮助她们在每一个场合更好地表现自己。
 
 
WHAT IS ETIQUETTE
 
Your mother did (or did not) teach you etiquette for a reason. That reason was that she wanted you (or didn't want you) to be a lady. Etiquette teaches you to sit up straight, not because it's traditional or normal but because good posture is more attractive. Etiquette not only teaches contemporary Chinese individuals to use a knife and fork and not because it's an old-fashioned western way, but because you can't shake hands with someone at a gala dinner if your fingers are covered in soy sauce.
 
You can be, or you can aspire to be as rich, famous or powerful as you like. But if you eat like a pig and are rude to others, you won't gain the respect from your peers, or people you meet. Grace, elegance and pleasing manners are attainable for all and something everyone should learn to have.

什么是礼仪?
 
我们的妈妈教过(或没有教过)我们礼仪皆因一种原因,那就是她想(或不想)让你成为一位淑女。“礼仪”教导你的坐姿身体要挺直,不仅仅因为这是传统或正式的方法,是因为这样好的姿态能让你更具魅力。“礼仪”不光是教当代中国人如何使用刀叉——这已经是非常传统过时的西式礼仪。而更多的是一些生活化的细节,比方说当你参加一个晚宴时手上沾满了酱汁,你便不能与其他人握手。
 
你可以是有钱有名有势的,或者你渴望成为这样的人。但是如果你与他人一起吃饭时狼吞虎咽,这在别人面前是很粗鲁的行为,那么你就不可能得到对方的尊敬。优雅,得体以及悦人的行为举止对于所有人来说是都可以做到的,也是每个人都需要去学习的。
