What’s the number one item on the agenda of a bride to be? You guessed it – locating the perfect wedding dress. After all, clothes maketh the man, no? Going by that old adage, there is nothing more important for a bride than looking good for her wedding day.
Your wedding dress can be of many types of fabrics. But season is one factor that can affect the style and cut of your wedding dress, along with the fabric. Late spring, summer and early autumn weddings call for lightweight fabrics such as chiffon or satin or silk, while late fall, winter and early spring call for heavier fabrics such as taffeta, brocade or velvet. You don’t necessarily have to stick to one fabric for the entire dress. Many designers have multiple layers of tulle overlaying the satin or base fabric of the wedding dress, especially over the skirts.
But are you unable to get the wedding gown of your dreams from any of the bridal boutiques and the designer options are proving too expensive? No problem! Since you know what you want (or you should know what you want after doing a good deal of research online), make a sketch of your perfect wedding dress. You don’t necessarily have to be an artist like Caroline Shotton. A rough, but detailed, sketch of the dress would be great.
Look out for a seamstress or tailor in your area. Meet with all the probable candidates and run through their works. Also pick their brain for their own ideas. You never know, one of their ideas might fit your desires!
It is important for you to know that making a dress from scratch can be an expensive proposition compared to buying one off the shelf. But if you are game for the amount, just go ahead and express who you really are through your wedding dress!

At the beginning of the year, a study on plastic surgery in the US concluded that the practice has grown by no less than 9% in the two short years since 2010. Of course, the most common and popular procedures were exactly the same as always top the list, namely breast augmentation, tummy tucks and so on and so forth. However, as society evolves and the procedures themselves become more diverse and indeed more widely available than ever before, there are a few once-rare procedures gaining serious ground and heading ever-closer to the top spots:

Normally, I love shopping. It has been my favourite hobby (if you can call it like that!) since I was a teenager. I used to believe it was my calling to become one of those personal shoppers, who spends all their time spending the money of the rich and famous. Of course, that was only if I was not rich and famous myself! But even I draw the line at wandering round the shops in the approach to Christmas.
Colours sometimes add a new dimension of beauty to wherever they are applied, even your hair. Your stylishly coloured hair can become your own style statement but only if done with care. Thanks to the latest evolutions in the cosmetics market and market leaders like L’oreal Majirel, colouring your hair is no longer an expensive affair that requires a visit to a professional salon. Now you can colour your hair right at the comfort of your home without spending a hefty amount of money at a salon.
There are many ways to make you appear youthful. You can color your hair, apply certain makeup, and wear sexy Silk Fabrics amongst other things. However, if your skin is sporting fine lines and wrinkles, no wardrobe or makeup is going to cover that. Many people declare attractiveness is just skin deep, but this won’t imply that you need to ignore the facial skin particularly when you’re in your 40′s. As you likely have got away with facial lines and a bad skincare routine in your 20s and 30s, by the time you have made it in your 40′s, you’d need to put in additional work in looking after your epidermis.
No cost beauty tips are one thing most people want to know about. There are numerous ways which you can help to make your skin and face appear beautiful and healthy. It is very important that you take good care of your skin and hair because it is the only ones you have. Plus, how well you take care of them determines how they will look later on during the aging process. This is why I am here to share a few tips with you.
Although the movement for ethical make up and body products has been around for a long time, it was probably Anita Roddick’s Body Shop that really publicised cruelty-free beauty treatments.
The Body Shop brought to high streets around the UK the concept of beauty products – whether blusher and lipstick or shower gel and body lotion – that had been produced without cruel testings on animals. By the time the Body Shop rolled out, most people were aware that animals had been subjected to horrible laboratory tests such as having shampoo squirted into their eyes, being made to inhale cigarette smoke all day round, or having products injected into them. All the while, many animals were chained up.
‘Not tested on animals'soon became a label that ethical consumers wanted to read on their make up and other beauty products, but even that does not mean that animal sources are not used. For vegans and other people who do not want any products derived from animals, the label has to read ‘suitable for vegetarians/vegans’.
Sometimes you can be horrified to find that your favourite pampering products do not meet this criterion, so for the real vegans amongst us, here are some top vegetarian recipes for home beauty treatments.
First of all, there are the old classics, applying slices of cucumber or cold, used teabags to your eyes. Lie back, close your eyes, and place the piece of your choice upon your closed eyelids. Both cucumber and cold teabags are cooling and relaxing, and will help get rid of any swelling.
For the face as a whole, there is nothing like a mask made of the mashed flesh of papaya, also known as pawpaw, mixed with a couple of drops of an essential oil that is good for the skin, such as rosemary or tea tree. Leave the messy gloop on while in the bath, then rinse off for a beautiful, smooth face.
This mixture can be put into ice cube trays and frozen, then one cube can be taken out before a bath to be readied for your treatment.
Veggies or not, there is no reason why you can’t have top quality home treatments.
