The Met Gala 2018 theme has been revealed

“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” has been revealed as the theme for next year’s Met Gala and Costume Institute exhibition.

According to The New York Times, the exhibition will create a conversation between fashion and the masterworks of religious art in the museum’s holdings. Around 50 or so garments and accessories will be on loan from the Vatican, alongside over 100 designer garments which have been inspired by Catholic iconography.

The annual charity ball, which is hailed as one of the biggest events in the fashion world’s calendar, will be co-hosted by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and sponsor Donatella Versace.

“Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” is 10 May to 8 October, 2018. 

Here’s why you need to be doing push-ups

Most us know that strength training is an essential part of a well-rounded exercise routine but now there’s evidence that body-weight exercises could add years to your life. In short: no more expensive gym memberships!
A new study of over 80,000 adults led by the University of Sydney comparing the mortality outcomes of different types of exercise had 23 percent reduction in risk of premature death by any means and a 31 percent reduction in cancer-related death.

“The study shows exercise that promotes muscular strength may be just as important for health as aerobic activities like jogging or cycling,” said Associate Professor Stamatakis.

No Gym Necessary 

The analysis also showed exercises performed using one’s own body weight without specific equipment were just as effective as gym-based training. “When people think of strength training they instantly think of doing weights in a gym, but that doesn’t have to be the case.

So start incorporating triceps dips, sit-ups and push-ups into your at-home exercise routine, and reap the health benefits.
