Watch the catwalks of famous fashion houses and you will clearly see that this season is all about contrast – strength and fragility, past and present, masculine and feminine. These contrasts shows every woman’s personal style. One famous trend is wearing fur coat with lots of disco and grunge flare. Any fur coat in outrageous color, tricolor, and neon will look totally cool. Thigh-high leather boots and slick stockings is also very hot this winter season. Women should be wearing tweed as well. This fabric spells elegance and reinvents itself in various forms.

Some designers have also showcased their collection of jackets & coats with large, rounded shoulders reminiscent of 1930’s glamour. Designers have reinvented the grunge look as well with mesh stockings, studded leather, and plaid shirts in the limelight again. This revival is the ultimate in laid-back, rebellious style. Another trend are coats in softer, delicate colors like powder pink which gives out this romantic and whimsy vibe. Camouflage prints and khaki in various forms is also cool. Reefer jackets in navy blue is another fashion must-have paired with a Marine uniform cap. Keep in mind that navy blue is this season’s standout color. It is the new black. Other trends are plaids, ostrich feathers, crocodile leather, and metallic mesh.

Brides naturally make a lot of effort and take a considerable amount of time to choose their perfect wedding dress not only because it is a once in a lifetime event but also because it is usually the thing that is remembered the most in a wedding. Furthermore, a bride looks more radiant when she is wearing a beautiful wedding dress which she can buy in any online stores. Online shops sells a wide variety of bridesmaid dresses, wedding dresses, mother of the bride dresses, and flower girl dresses. Apart from the dress, choosing the perfect wedding day shoes is also important.

There are many ways to select the perfect shoes and there is no need to follow a single recipe to do that.
You have to first consider the shoes that is appropriate for your wedding’s setting. You certainly cannot wear stilettos on a sandy beach. Brides are increasingly choosing two pairs of shoes, elegant heels during the ceremony and a more comfortable pair for the reception. Make sure to test the shoes you have chosen before your wedding day to see if you are comfortable wearing them. You can also pick out shoes that go with your wedding’s theme. Choose shoes that match an accent color. Shoes with rhinestones and other embellishments are suitable for a more formal affair.

Shop for shoes that matches your dress but do not go overboard. Do not be afraid to experiment with a pop of color since anything goes with white. There are things to keep in mind though when matching your shoes to your wedding gown. Try on your shoes with your dress to make sure that you will not trip over the fabric or drag the hem on the ground. Also ensure that the fabrics do not clash or else everything will look “off”. If you have a short dress, wear high heels so as to look well-proportioned. Furthermore, your shoes need to match the overall feel of your dress.

Women often complain about hair. These complaints may be that their hair does not grow quickly enough, their hair grows too quickly, or that their hair takes far too long to style. On average, American women are said to spend almost 50 minutes each day on personal grooming. If you looked at this over the span of a year, this comes out to a whopping 270 hours a year spent in front of a mirror! Much of this time is spent on hairstyles – from washing to blow drying to curling, hair can take a lot of time.

Many, in an effort to find ways to save time on their grooming routines, turn to new and innovative techniques. These range from showering less often to trying out Christie Brinkley Collection items such as clip-in bangs. In taking a closer look at these techniques, one may find that some actually help to save valuable time, while some may end up adding precious minutes to a beauty routine.

Showering Less Often

Some women, upon discovering that they are taking far too long to get ready each day, decide that perhaps showering less often will help. In theory, this will save a lot of time. In reality, women who change their showering routine generally find that their grooming time either stays the same or increases. One may wonder why this happens if time is cut by not showering and not having to dry one’s hair. Most women find that extra time is then spent in finding ways to hide the fact that they have not showered. From body spritzes, to dry shampoo brushed through the hair, the trade-off in time is very similar. Any extra time that may be gained by foregoing a shower seems to be used on extra styling time to make the hair appear as if one did shower.

Wearing a Very Short Hairstyle

Some women who are tired of spending so much time on their hair decide to go with a very short hairstyle. Again, one would think that with less hair, less time would be spent on grooming. Many women with short hair, however, report that it takes much longer to style than long hair once did. Short hair has a tendency to flatten during the night and need extra product and volume for the right look in the morning. What time may have once been spent on blow drying long hair is now spent on trying to encourage volume, lift and shape into shorter hair.

Collection of Hairpieces

One time-saving method that seems to have been effective for many women is to invest in a few high-quality hairpieces. Today’s hairpieces are a great way for many women to cut time off their personal grooming routine and still end up feeling as if the look great. Christie Brinkley extensions are in this category, and can be easily set into one’s own hair to add volume and length. Because these products have not been slept on, the extension does not need extra combing or attention before it is added to the natural hair. By boosting volume and length this way, many find that there is little or no need for ratting, spraying or adding extra mousse.

If you have been looking for ways to save time on your hair each day, be sure to take a look at high-quality hair extension products.

When I am in home, and my friends are heading over at my place. Sometimes i run out of ideas what to do with them. Gossiping is on the top list but topics die out fast. So here is when my friend suggested about playing bingo, and I had a smirk on my face. I know my friends, they are not bingo ladies. But I was in for a surprise that night, my friends talked about how they love bingo.

So we had a small bingo game, with each of us contributing for the prize money. Voila, I am so happy a 2 liner game but I was ecstatic because I never won a raffle till date. When my friend was leaving, she told me if I like to play online bingo then I could try out few of her suggestions. One such suggestion was to play at New Look Bingo, a site which shares the name of a fashion brand. That did catch my eye, the site is cleverly designed with a chic girl playing bingo in her mobile. We are all those fast paced ladies who does thing on the go. I registered myself and was glad to see £15 free quids in my account. It’s hard to get free lunch in this world, getting free bingo to play is definitely my cup of tea.

I like the fact there were many bingo rooms along with slots games from casino. I enjoyed playing in these sites and as Christmas is in the air. The site is ladled with many promotions that helps you winning so many prizes. Cashback on games, is the icing on the cake. What I liked is the chat rooms, chatting and discussing about trends in holiday destinations, also on fashion. To sum it up, it was a good break from my usual time pass activities, I loved playing it for the sheer fun and you could join now for your fun promotions that you could like. Winning or losing just depends on luck and we can be assured that may be one day we will see our name on that cheque.

There’s point in our lives that we have to attend such eventful occasions that might be relates to our daily living such as: company’s gatherings, anniversary neither an personal occasions like a friend’s weddings or engagement parties. Whatever it is, you should at least be looking neat or much better stunning among the rest.

There are people who cannot seem to leave home without their sunglasses. No matter how old you are, whether you are a man or a woman, a pair of sunnies is essential to be stylish or chic. They add flair to anything you wear and brings out your individual fashion sense. It truly is one of the coolest fashion accessories. Not only that, sunglasses protect our eyes from the harmful rays of the sun which in extreme conditions may cause blindness. Every woman should have a pair stashed in their bag. Zalora has a great selection of sunglasses available at affordable prices.

There are different types of sunglasses available to fit every person’s personality and taste. There are those which are slightly or heavily tinted, or polarized and integrative etc. Women usually wear them as a fashion accessory but they are likewise worn as protection during outdoor activities. Wayfarer sunglasses have been around since the 1950s. They are wide and angular sunnies that look great on both men and women. Another type is the Aviator which has a triangular oval shape. They are always in fashion and considered one of the coolest type. Aviators are a total must-have.

If you want glare-free vision even under the bright rays of the sun, use Polarized sunglasses. Great for driving and outdoor activities like biking, hiking, mountain climbing etc., they are available in various sizes and shapes. Teashade Sunglasses, on the other hand, are characterized by medium-sized, round, dark lenses, supported by pads on the bridge of the nose and a thin wire frame. Teashades are no longer as popular today as they were in the 1960s. The last type of sunnies is the Mirrorshade. As the name implies, they have mirror coating on the surface of the lens. They allow very little light to pass through the lens, thus they are suitable during extreme weather conditions.

The bride usually focuses on her wedding dress more than any other item in her attire. However, the bride should also pay attention to other items in her ensemble such as the veil because this is what makes a woman look like a real bride. The moment when a groom lifts the veil and kisses his bride is probably the most romantic moment during the wedding ceremony. The headdress plays a big part in the overall look of a bride. The veil remains the first choice as compared to a headband, tiara, or a hat. It comes in many designs and styles so picking the right one may be a bit difficult.

There are a lot of things that goes into your mind when you think about the veil like the length, color, and how thick it is. For the color, go with something that has the same shade as your dress or probably a shade lighter. The length of the veil should complement the design of your wedding dress and should not overshadow it. You should also think of how many tiers you want your veil to have.

 photo tumblr_lh4so951Fs1qf59zbo1_500_zps5ecb53ff.jpg

The bride should likewise think of the veil’s fabric. Some of the most commonly used ones are Silk Tulle which is the most pricey and made of silk; Swiss Dot which is translucent; Chiffon which is non translucent but is soft flowing; Bridal Illusion which is the most commonly used fabric made of soft tulle made of 100% nylon; and Organza which is semi translucent.

Once you have made your decision as to what type of veil you want to wear for sure you will be the most beautiful bride in the world. For brides who want to shop at a one-stop bridal online store, you can do so at DressWe or JDDresses. They sell a wide variety of wedding dresses like lace wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses, and flower girl dresses.
