5 Good Reasons Why You Should Never Skimp On Your Wedding Makeup

The stress of planning a wedding is no joke – plenty of things has to be done including the hunt for the best yet budget-friendly caterers, dressmakers, and photographers. Since it’s one of the most memorable events for the couple, everything has to be perfect. Not to downplay grooms but in most cases, the brides are the ones who get really exhilarated about the wedding day. Next to the wedding gown, the bridal hair and makeup are a crucial aspect, though they’re often put at the least of priorities.

With other wedding costs to keep in mind, we cannot blame frugal couples for skimping on these. Some brides opt for cheaper styling services, hire a non-pro makeup junkie, or even do their own wedding hair and makeup to cut expenses. But is omitting the need for a professional hair and makeup artist (HMUA) worth it?

When you look at the numbers, pro hair and makeup may seem a bit pricey. By the end of the day, the cosmetics will still fade so why bother throwing $150 for it? But if you come to realize the pros and cons of having your bridal look done by a professional, the good will knock off the bad. Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t scrimp on your look.

But things change through the course of the relationship. People change. Priorities change. Feelings change. Some marriages which are built with a solid foundation stand the test, while some eventually crumble like a house of cards.

But if the cause of unhappiness is beyond repair and you feel like you’re wasting your time in a relationship that’s no longer working, maybe it’s time to face these four truths.

How Technology Transforms the Dating Area

Casual, Simple and Harmless Flirtation

If potential wooers were to ponder some of the greatest, technological developments that have revolutionized the dating world over the past few centuries, they would primarily mention the genius invention of the automobile. This marvelous progression was first forged in 1886 and obviously replaced animal-drafted carriages for a more pleasant and efficient dating experience. Not too soon after followed the first black and white film in 1888 and obviously the actual movie theater to view these motion pictures in 1895, which created the ideal atmosphere to enjoy a passionate evening with a possible suitor, hand in hand.

Nonetheless, upon the dawn of “Generation Z” in 2001, mobile and wireless technology suffered a massive “boom,” completely altering the fashion in which people converse, get to know each other and meet up without the necessity of face-to-face courtship at first hand. Text messages, free messenger systems like WhatsApp and other online social networks like Facebook have stolen and flooded the limelight of our dating world (from America to Europe). Interestingly enough, now potential suitors have the ability to transmit “smooth talk” immediately without the nerve wrecking delay of a hand-written response via snail mail. Additionally, with the overall casualness of a text message, possible admirers could conquer their “prey” with a higher level of confidence and less initial pressure.

Going on a blind date? Top ideas to get ready for it

Are you getting ready for an exciting blind date this Saturday evening? Do you want to know how you can look your best without spending 3 hours in front of the mirror? Some women don’t have time to do their makeup, whereas others are just no longer interested in putting all sorts of chemicals on their faces. The cosmetics industry has changed tremendously in the past 10 years. The trends have been completely altered to match with our complexions and personalities, and at this point all we want is to look incredible without making our faces look artificial. Here are some guidelines to help you have a killer blind date and make a good impression.

Choose comfortable, stylish clothes

One of the biggest challenges of a blind date – choosing the clothes. How do you make the right choice? The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. Think twice before deciding to wear heels, or a skirt that may seem too flashy. A casual, stylish outfit works the best. A white, simple shirt with a pair of A-line pants can work miracles. Go overboard with the accessories – you wouldn’t want to look to business-like.

Sleek, casual, loose hair

Getting ready for a first blind date starts with hair. Some men just don’t care about what you’re wearing from the neck down. But they might be interested in how your hair looks like. It’s fundamental that you keep things simple and natural. You don’t want to make the wrong impression. If you love curls, you can get them. But steer clear of that artificial curly look with perfect waves. Messy, playful waves might seem a lot better. Or go for a funky braid with a side-swept bangs. Whatever you do, just limit the use of too make hair products. All-natural works the best!

Make-up

As far as make-up is concerned, we don’t advise you to go over the top. Increasingly more men have started preferring women who wear all natural makeup. Too much foundation, striking eye shadow and red lips just don’t look appealing. Rather than use foundation, choose a light BB cream. Use an illuminator in the cheekbone area, some blush and nude tones for the eyes and lips.

As for eyebrows, you might want to keep things all natural, too. A fresh face that looks impeccable without too much make-up will make a better impression than a very striking one that’s just aiming to hide who you really are.

Accessories and perfume

Excessive perfume should be avoided at all costs on a first date. That’s because you can’t know for sure if your date will like the aroma. Maybe he’s not that into lavender and jasmine scents. Use a discreet perfume and you’ll have better chances to draw attention. As far as accessories are concerned, it might be a good idea to keep things on the down low. Just remember that it’s a blind date. Basically, you don’t know the person you’re talking to because you’ve never met. Wear elegant, discreet accessories. A thin golden necklace with a pendant, pearl earrings and maybe a watch should be enough.

Looking amazing on a first date doesn’t have to be that hard. The secret is to be yourself, and no pretend to be someone else. Act natural and let him uncover your personality. Natural makeup works best because your date will see the real you. Stay focused on quality products and you’ll have a lot to win. A beautiful and clean complexion without too much eyeshadow and primer is sexier than a smoky eye makeup that creates an illusion.

Last but not least, we must emphasize that going on a blind these days can be nerve-wracking. What if you get a pimple just before the big day? But if you learn to take good care of yourself and your body, everything will be ok. Beauty comes from within. Drink plenty of water to have a clean and smooth skin, and invest in natural foundation uk and organic make-up products to allow the skin to breathe. Be confident and trust that you’re beautiful – that’s the key to an amazing bling date with someone you really like.

The Devil is in the Details When it Comes to Home Decor

Look around your home and pick out the things you love the most about it. You probably picked a variety of accent pieces and maybe a favorite piece of furniture or throw blanket that you curl up with every evening and sip your tea. Did you look up at the lighting fixture? Do you love that? Did you look down at the bullnose skirting surrounding the entire circumference of your room where your walls meet your floor? Did you look at the color of the walls? Sometimes, it’s not the things we add to a room that makes us fall in love with it…it’s the room itself!

What is your favorite room in the house? Why is it your favorite room? Is it the cozy nook you’ve carved out for yourself where you can read quietly while the sun rises across the horizon? Is the dining room where you and your family enjoy meals every evening? What is it about those rooms that makes you love them. Of course a house is really just brick and mortar, but what we do to our house is what makes it a home, and of course, how we live in our house makes it a home.

But there’s no denying that the personal touches we add to our homes over the years make them extra special to us. Especially those first big renovation jobs that we undertake. We take pride in those and that pride lasts for years. Maybe you searched for days looking for just the right flooring for your bathroom makeover. Perhaps you searched high and low to find the perfect single pendant light to hang over your kitchen island. Maybe you received a half used can of wall color and fell in love with it, but only had enough to do an accent wall.

You see, we don’t just pick flooring and wall colors. We fall in love with them. We don’t just pick door knobs and lighting fixtures, because we know these things are going to be in our homes, and our lives, for a very long time. But then, as time slips away, we tend to forget about how much we loved those walls and how much we loved that floor, and we start to focus on the pieces that are added to the room, instead of the room itself.

So the next time you are going to curl up with your next great book and your favorite cup of tea, have a look around the room you are sitting in and remember why you loved the house in the first place. It is the actual house, after all, that you loved when you bought it. It probably didn’t look exactly as you imagined it, but you saw the potential in it and knew that with time, the house could become a home. Those walls would become the backdrop for your family photos, and those floors would become worn with pathways developed over the years. So before you run out and buy another vase to accent your kitchen or family room, take a good hard look at the room itself. It is the detail in the room: the lines on the walls, the grooves in the floor, the miscut skirting running along the floors and walls, that make it so special. The rest is simply lipstick.

Five Ways to Liven Up Your Outdoor Living Area

Summer is just around the corner and the shops are brimming with beautiful home decor pieces that are inspired by sunshine and beaches. It’s easy to get carried away and plaster your home with themed decor because it’s a new season, but don’t forget to liven up your outdoor spaces too. After all, the majority of the next few months is going to be spent soaking up the sun, breathing in the fresh air, and lazing in backyard hammocks.

It’s exciting to think about all the ways you can spruce up your outdoor decor for parties and barbecue events. Here are five ways to bring your outdoor space to life so it can be enjoyed throughout the summer season.

Don’t Skimp on the Lighting

Think of your outdoor space as an extension of your indoor space. And think about all of those beautiful summer evenings you can spend on the patio on in the backyard. While the sun shines longer in the summer, it gets pretty dark when it finally dips below the horizon. You need some awesome lighting to take the party from day to night. Think about lighting that does double duty: torches that are filled with citronella to keep the mosquitos at bay; fire pits that can act as both mood lighting and can help keep you and your guests warm. Don’t forget about patio lighting for your stairs and walkways: safety first. Plus, they are gorgeous!

Liven Up Your Senses

If you like to entertain then you know that the perfect scent can change the mood of any room. Don’t forget that rule for your outdoor spaces too. A lightly scented candle or diffuser can help ground a space. It is important to be mindful of your guests: people may be in the presence of oils and allergies can kick up. Choose essential oils that don’t irritate allergies, and your guests will appreciate the effort.

Throw Pillows and Blankets

Spending a warm summer evening on the patio furniture is a favorite pastime of many people. Not only does an evening under the stars make for a great date, but it also makes for a great social gathering. People love to spend time outside. But be prepared for cooler evenings with beautiful outdoor throw blankets and pillows that can bring people closer together and keep them warm. A few pillows placed by the fire seating, and a warm throw blanket here and there can really add some punch to your decor, as well as help your guests feel welcome long into the evening. Be sure to choose blankets and pillows that are made from outdoor fabric. While not waterproof, they are weatherproof, and do last a lot longer than materials made for indoor use. Keep in mind that outdoor materials are slightly more expensive because of the special nature of their fabrics, so be sure to include the cost of them in your budget when you are planning your new or refreshed outdoor living space.

How To Stay Fit With Few Simple Tricks

Had you ever asked anyone if it is important to stay fit and healthy in life? Yes! Is the obvious answer, but when you ask them why is it important? You may face a pause. It’s a part of human nature that we only go for those things in which we see a sort of benefit.

Whenever you understand that what benefits you can fetch from the particular task at that time only you get motivated to perform the specific action. Remaining fit and healthy is of the same kind.

Being healthy and fit isn’t a trend. Instead, it’s a lifestyle…

This is so true to remain active you really need to be fit, here I really don’t consider staying thin or thick, just fit. Here are some of the hacks with which you can stay fit and healthy.

  1. Nutrition is important part:

If you really want to lose weight or I can say you want to stay fit, proper nutrition intake is must. Good nutrition is an important part to lead a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy isn’t so easy but yes it is one of the smartest decision that you can make in your life. Here the question rises why?

Eating healthy isn’t so challenging, but it depends on you the way you handle that eating. Eating healthy does also means that you really need to avoid fast food, full calories soda, chocolates and cakes and sodium full food.

  1. Add exercise to your daily routine:

It’s not necessary to stay fit you need to be gym freak. Just because you don’t live near a gym, it really doesn’t mean that you can’t stay fit. You might have heard that each little step make a long journey. Your small actions can make a great change in your daily life. No matter what your schedule is, no matter whether going gym is possible for you or not, still you can have 30 minutes brisk walk daily, avoid elevators and take stairs, don’t go for coffee and sodas, be fit.

The main theme is just to move your body regularly so that the extra calories intake can get burned and no need to start it from tomorrow, go today. For a healthy walk, you must have a healthy environment which you can get in the Residential Projects in Delhi.

  1. Don’t avoid eating:

This is kind of myth that staying without food can make you healthy and fit, instead, you need to eat regularly after 2 hrs. The three meals are must and apart from this, you need to have something timely. Don’t ever think that if you will not eat then you can get slim but instead you will face problems.

According to me, you must eat something when you wake up or before your workout, then a healthy plus heavy breakfast, then after two hrs have some fruits, then jump to your lunch where you must eat proper fiber, vitamins, and proteins. (Avoid carbohydrates from your diet) then have some evening snack then go to dinner where avoid rice and fatty substances.

All in all, continue your eating, but a healthy eating.

  1. Avoid packaged foods and drinks:

Today’s youth has a major attraction towards junk food and soda drinks; they are magnets to them, with which they get attracted.  The packaged and processed foods are just too unhealthy which has a strong composition of sodium which turns out to be fat once in your body.

The best food you can have are nuts, yogurt, fruits, whole grains and veggies and the worst you can have are French fries, potatoes, sweetened beverages, red meats and processed meats.
