New Delhi, Dec 16, 2016: Keep the length of your outfit in mind and choose comfort over style when you go on bridal shoe shopping spree, says an expert.

Sudatta Bhattacharya, Styling Expert at ShaadiSaga.com – an online wedding planning platform and Yuvraj Singh and actress Hazel Keech’s official online wedding planning partners — has listed down some important points.


NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

* Heels vs flats: Ask yourself if you are comfortable walking in heels? Do you need to add extra height to match your groom? Or will you be at more ease in flats? These will give you a clear idea of what you should be looking for. Another important thing to remember is the kind of venue you have for your wedding functions. If you have an outdoor wedding function, you should probably opt for wedges or flats because stilettos might dig deep inside sand/grass.

* Length of the outfit you are wearing: Ideally, the heel size (inches) should be almost equal to the extra length of lehenga that you would have kept during the final trials and fittings. It’s best to stick with gold and silver so that you are able to reuse them later.

* Comfort over style: There’s a high chance that you will fall in love with the pair of shoes that look absolutely stunning but might not be comfortable to walk in. Remember that at the end of the day it’s you who have to wear those shoes. You will be the one who will have to stand for photographs, walk around here and there, and dance a bit too! So, wobbling around your heels which are way high or uncomfortable for you wouldn’t be a good idea at all.

* Don’t go for shoes that are beyond your budget: There are times when you cannot get over that one pair of shoe which you know you cannot afford it and then nothing really seems good enough. Well, don’t get attached to everything you see. Just switch to the next pair of shoe or if needed to the next shop and keep your budget in mind.

* Practice wearing them again and again: Do make sure you get them worn in at least a few weeks from the wedding day. Wear them around the house; apply Vaseline or coconut oil while you are trying them on. Get used to wearing them, walk around the carpets if necessary, so that on the big day, your bridal shoes are already shaped according to your feet. (IANS)

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
