Mehndi

http://culturalwedding.com/gvrd/data/media/37/mehndi_invitation.jpg

No Pakistani wedding is ever complete without the mehndi. Whichever part of the country the bride may be from, her hands are adorned with the lovely red hue of the mehndi (mehndi). Beauty parlours have special bridal mehndi packs - these days, the brides have a choice between the Indian mehndi (which covers pretty much most of the palm) and the Arabic mehndi (in which the pattern is drawn to one side of the hand). The cost of applying the mehndi may vary from parlour to parlour. mehndi (Mehndi) is associated to lots of things - a good dark design is a sign of good luck for the marital couple. It is common for the names of the bride and groom to be hidden in the mehndi design; and the wedding night cannot commence until the groom has found the names. Some examples of popular traditional images/thumb used in mehndi designs are the peacock, which is the national bird if India, the lotus flower, and an elephant with a raised trunk, which is a symbol of good luck

Buy Perfume Online

http://womensperfumesale.com/images/dolce%20and%20gabbana%20perfume.jpg
Want to buy perfume online and save? Here are perfume reviews and distributors that offer women and mens perfume for less.

Buying perfume online is extremely easy. If you know which brand that you enjoy it is a simple point and click procedure. And because these companies do not have to pay for sales reps and rent and shelf space, they can pass on these savings to you. You can almost always find your favorite fragrances online for less. That is simply the way it is. Some companies even offer free shipping depending on the amount that you spend.
In addition to finding the fragrances that you are familiar with, you can read countless reviews of other perfumes online. This site gives reviews of scents like Issey Miyake Perfume and Dolce and Gabbana perfumes.
You can find fragrances from the US, Europe and all over the world on the internet. So if you found a scent that you adore in Greece and purchased a bottle there and need a new one, you can go online and almost always find what you are looking for.
I used to go to a perfume store in Coral Gables, Miami. I loved it. It had fragrances from all over the world. The most wonderful, mysterious scents available could be found here. They were not cheap but at least they were unique. This store closed not soon after I discovered it because of the high rents and the fact that you could find these same fragrances online for much less.
The internet has changed the way people buy perfume. You can smell the different scents in magazines and then go online to buy them. And you can wander through a department store and sample different fragrances then go home and find those same perfumes online at a discount.
And if a store has an exclusive on a perfume, like Neiman Marcus often does, you can simply go to their website and buy it online and have it shipped directly to you. There is no need to spend that extra gas money or waste your time in a mall. Buying your perfumes online simply makes the most sense. You save, get the exact scents that you want and have it delivered straight to your door. What else could you possibly want?

Wedding ring

Wedding rings how to.jpg












The wedding ring is probably one of the most important parts of marriage. Traditionally it's a symbol that you are taken and of your commitment to each other, and fashion wise it's something that you'll be wearing for the rest of your life, meaning you have to take time and effort picking the right one.
Unlike the engagement ring, which is usually chosen by the groom (more of that later) couples tend to pick their wedding rings together to make sure they have something that to a certain extent matches and each like each others choices. After all if he hates your ring he won't be gazing at it very lovingly and vice versa. And if you force him into buying a ring he hates, he's very unlikely to be happy wearing it.
A good way to show each other a sign of commitment (yes we know marriage is a huge one) is to opt for a wedding ring set, where both rings match. Many stores such as Goldsmiths, Ernest Jones and Fraser Heart offer these sets.
However, if that's not to your taste then how about getting them made? You can then add things that mean something to you, for example, pick a stone that has some meaning, or perhaps choose to have a tiny flower engraved on the back, maybe one of the first types he gave you.
Alternatively you could opt for something unusual or antique, or even designing your own. Celtic rings are another popular style for contemporary weddings.

Pedicures!

http://www.bridalwave.tv/Pedicure.jpg

Nail brush, pumice stone, nail clippers, emery board, cotton wool, cotton buts, polish remover, nail varnish, moisture cream, a small tub for soaking feet.
Here is how to give yourself ' at home pedicure '.
1. Soak your feet in warm water, adding a few drops of any disinfectant. Scrub your toe nails with a fairly stiff nail-brush. Scrub off any hard skin with a pumice stone. Never try to cut hard skin as this can be dangerous. Dry the feet carefully, especially between the toes.
2. Massage the feet with a little foot cream. You may get one containing menthol which is very cooling.
3. Apply cuticle cream around the nails.
4. Using an orange stick, wrapped with a twist of cotton wool and dipped in cuticle remover, gently press the cuticle back. The cuticle should never be cut unless the edges are ragged.
5. Cut the nails straight across and then smooth the edges with an emery-board. the nails should not be so short that the soft flesh at the ends of the toe is exposed.
6. Use a little varnish remover on cotton wool to dry off the nails and remove any cream.
7. Cotton wool pads can now be put between the toes. This is to avoid smudging and the varnish applied, covering the whole nail and over the tip.

Bridal Makeup Tips

http://img.xcitefun.net/users/2009/09/112495,xcitefun-special-eid-makeup-whats-new-15.jpg

Makeup is surprisingly often an overlooked item when planning your dream shaadi.
Brides always focus on planning their outfits, jewellery, hair and mehndi but don't realise that, to look amazingly stunning on their wedding day they really need to have good makeup applied by a professional. Bridal make up by its very nature is a unique requirement and your make up regime for the big day needs careful thought and consideration.

My personal approach to make-up for brides is one of corrective, subtle make-up that enhances the bride's best features and makes her look naturally radiant and beautiful on her big day.
The first thing people notice when they look at a bride - is how stunning and radiant she looks, not her makeup itself. In fact make - up that is too obvious can look overdone and artificial so understated and sophisticated elegance is the name of the game!

When it comes to applying bridal makeup, there is a correct sequence and technique to follow as well as a preparatory stage to ensure that you will be looking your absolute best.
Selection and advice on the best and most appropriate products, colours and styles is also imperative.
What works for you in your day to day use or for other special occasions will not necessarily make you look your best on your big day! This kind of in depth knowledge can only come .

Eyes

For your eyes, you can't go wrong with matt makeup with slight shimmering shadows. You should usually use a combination of colours to compliment the Brides outfit. A soft black eyeliner, (No browns) use black mascara for your wedding day, even if you're very fair and usually go for brown - it'll show up better in your photographs, smudged close to the base of you lashes on your upper lid will make your eyelashes appear thicker and, in conjunction with a little grey or dark brown eye-shadow applied with a thin brush at the base of your lower lashes, will subtly define your eyes perfectly for the photos. Use black WATERPROOF mascara on just about bride , and curl the lashes before applying it. On some occasions you even consider using false eyelashes as this gives more definition over the eyes and looks quite stunning in photographs.

Lips

For the bride's lips,Use a colour that will not clash with the bride's eyes and dress and of course her Bouquet� Bearing in mind you have already primed your lips when you applied your foundation and powder by putting a suitable balm or moisturiser on them after you have done your base. By the time you are ready for lipstick to be applied, your lips will be in perfect condition�-Always leave this to the very last. Use a "Nude" lip pencil over the entire lip before applying the lip colour as it gives extra staying power, apply lip-colour then blot with a tissue and reapply lipstick with a touch of gloss or a more shimmering colour to enhance the shadow of your bottom lip and a slight touch over the top lip.

Finally

The most important tip is to allow yourself a good three hours to get ready as this gives your beautician plenty of time to work her magic and make you look stunning. More importantly it will give you some all-important chill out time away from your interfering aunties. Before you make an entrance, a quick check and powder before you leave for the ceremony, and your Dulha will be totally bowled over PLUS you will look fantastic in the photos of your dream shaadi!

Demurely buttoned up yet slightly subversive...Marc Jacobs AW10

Mannish chic on the Marc Jacobs AW10 runway

A modern day Virginia Woolf could have been Marc Jacobs' inspiration...
Diane von Furstenberg said of her AW10 collection, ‘Metamorphosis’, “I always wanted to live a man’s life in a woman’s body”, and proceeded to send models down the runway in a juxtaposition of flouncy frills and mannish fabrics. Cord jackets with leather elbow patches were thrown over ruffled minidresses, while silk cardigans mixed with sharp tuxedo jackets. I thought my fashion career had conquered my academic past, but apparently not, because the first thing that came to mind when Diane uttered these words was Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, the transgender hero(ine) of her seminal novel. In fact, wasn’t Virginia actually rather chic herself? All those slouchy knits, painterly florals and long tweed skirts, delivered with a sliver of androgyny, were quite delicious, and very AW10, it would seem. Bloomsbury style seeped through the shows, with Marc Jacobs sending models out dressed in grey tweed, ankle socks and low-heeled pumps, along with a Prince of Wales three-piece check suit and fur trimmed jackets. It reminded me of the wardrobe of Kristin Scott Thomas’ ingenue daughter in Gosford Park. Even Preen seemed to be moving away from its signature high voltage, pumped-up sexiness, replacing figure-clinging mini dresses with long hemlines and sleeves, and a subdued palette of taupe and plum.

Lights, camera, fashion

Following a gruelling 20 hour coach journey from Switzerland to London (thanks to a certain pesky volcano), the Matches AW10 fashion shoot was just the pick-me-up I needed, when I finally crawled into the office. Who needs caffeine when you’ve got Mary Katranzou, Christian Louboutin fur boots and lashings of Chanel?
Just look at some of the beauties you’re going to be swooning over come autumn…

Erdem's signature prints have a brooding, glamorous twist for AW10

Tips to Stay Young






















The thought of growing old scares everyone.


The secret for better aging is to feel good about yourself and treat the symptoms that come naturally in the process of aging. You don't have to just live with these symptoms and feel bad. You have to embrace what you have and feel good about yourself.


Avoid your obsession with aging, and you'll be surprised just how much weight you've lifted off your shoulders.


You should feel that same person 20 or so years before. What matters is not how you look on the surface, it is who you truly are deep down. This may sound like too much of a cliché, but then again, this became a cliché for good reason. Inside, you still have the same dreams and many of the same interests. In fact, aging has only had its rewards. The years should have taught you to be more confident and happier in your own skin. You may constantly obsess about the fine lines and deep crevices you see in front of the mirror, but has this done anyone good?


If you follow the steps listed below,you can stay forever young and beautiful.


Unfortunately there are no miracles drugs. Sadly, no Fountain of Youth but there are some things you can do to stay young and healthy looking without anything too radical. Lifestyle Habits are the main thing to consider. Following some simple steps will help you look and feel better. It will also save you a ton of money and keep you out of the plastic surgeon's chair.


1. Eat Healthy:
Eat a balanced, healthy diet, including five helpings of fruits and vegetables a day.


2. Exercise:
Exercise has so many benefits. Helps maintain good posture, alleviate stress and increase blood flow. Once you see the positive affects it brings you'll be hooked.


3. Sleep:
Sleep is a natural healer for mind and body. It's easy to say sleep 8 hours every night but often not as easy to do. Do try to get on a schedule that gives you enough sleep. Your body restores and repairs itself during sleep.


4. Smile Gorgeous:
Your smile is something people notice. Take care of your teeth. Make sure to get your regular dental check ups and cleanings. If you notice your teeth becoming discolored buy a teeth whitening product. These are very reasonable now and they work. Avoid smoking, coffee and red wine as they can stain teeth.


5.Love Your Locks:

Find a happy middle. Avoid wearing hair too long. As you age it becomes less flattering. Avoid wearing it too short. A severe short hair cut can also tack on the years. Have bangs! Bangs soften the face and are flattering on anyone. Avoid blunt cut bangs. Try side swept or long layered bangs


6. Give up smoking:
Smoking destroys the natural proteins in the skin collagen and elastin. It decreases the blood supply to your skin. When you smoke your pucker your lips. Over time those pucker lines will become permanent. Lipsticks bleeds down into them making your lips look dry, crackly and well old.


7. Less is More:
Avoid being heavy handed with make up. Certain cosmetics can actually age you. Foundations and Powders often make fine lines look more prominent. They look more like "wrinkles" Use anti aging products and keep it light.


8. Be Fashionable
Keep up on style trends. Make sure you know what works for you. Don't give up your age by wearing outdated clothing. Be modern and express your amazing taste with your clothing.


9. Stay Positive
We are all our own worst critics and we often judge ourselves to harshly. When you look in the mirror don't take note of the crow's feet take note of your lovely brown eyes. Be kind to yourself. Everyone ages. There is no way around that but we can make sure we do it gracefully. Remember that you are Beautiful. Take Pride in that.

Secrets Of Healthy Hair

Unfortunately, most of the real basic ingredients for healthy hair are at odds with the way modern Americans lead their lives. Still, it bears repeating to say , coloring your hair, going on crash diets, and smoking or being with smokers will damage short and long hair. Care should also be taken to use products with a minimum of chemicals present to prevent a damaging build up that essentially suffocates the hair shaft. There are specific considerations for various types of hair.


Secrets To Maintaining Healthy Hair


There are lots of secrets in maintaining healthy hair and some of them are as follows:

Although many people believe long hair is more difficult to handle, in reality it is the most versatile of all hair styles. Tangling is a major issue and can be lessened by detangling before shampooing and by not piling the hair on top of the head and bunching it when wet. It is best to shampoo while showering and to work the shampoo down the length of the hair as if you were milking a cow. Always end with a cold water rinse to enhance the sheen of your hair.Concentrate conditioner at the ends of the hair to avoiding splitting and if possible, air dry. Any natural hair care methods will always be better than artificial ones like blow drying. If you have to blow dry, try to do so in shifts so that your hair does not get too hot which causes the hair to be brittle and to break more easily. Never brush you hair while it is wet and use only wide tooth combs.If you would like your hair to fall in waves, braid it while it is still wet, then take it down when it is dry. Putting it up in a top knot while wet will create volume when the hair is released. Braids or pony tails are always useful in any situation where your hair can become tangled or caught in something. If your hair is down on a cold, windy day, put your hair inside your coat when going outside.For special occasions braiding scarves or ribbons into your hair can create a touch of elegance and the pinned back chignon is always a classic touch as is a French braid. Make sure to have frequent small trim work even if you have to do it yourself to keep any split ends under control. If you trim your own split ends, do each hair individually. For this kind of self-care, it's a good idea to get a friend with long hair to do the trim for you and then you can return the favor.


SHORT HAIR

Short hair presents few problems in and of itself. There are of course issues with the quality of hair worn in any style (curly, fine, thick, frizzy, oily) which will be discussed below. The major consideration in short hair is to match the cut to the shape of your face.There are seven basic facial shapes: diamond, heart, oval, rectangle, round, square, and triangular. Not all facial shapes are compatible with all cuts. Diamond-shaped faces that are narrow at the forehead but wide at the cheeks with a small, pointy chin work best with cuts that add more fullness at the crown of the head to balance out the width of the cheeks.Heart-shaped faces with their wide foreheads and small chins looks best when paired with a layered bob with lots of volume. Asymmetrical cuts also compliment this facial configuration. Oval faces are characterized by high foreheads and narrow but round chins. This is the most balance of all the facial shapes and works well with any cut.Rectangular faces are long with high foreheads and defined jaws and chins. In general a chin-length or shoulder-length cut will be most effective to call attention away from the length of the face and to give an overall softening effect. Some fringe or bangs at the forehead also works well.Round faces have wide foreheads and full jaws. Because the shape is similar to the oval, most styles will work but be sure to have fullness above the ears. The softer the cut and the more the layers come forward toward the face the better the style for this facial type. Asymmetrical cuts are also good.The square face with its "lantern" jaw and wide forehead needs a graduated cut with lots of volume at the crown. Triangular faces, on the other hand, that are widest at the jaw and more narrow at the temple can actually accommodate most styles except those with volume at the top or crown of the head.


CURLY HAIR

Curly hair care can present many issues because this hair type is so susceptible to frizziness. Many people use the old method of lightly spritzing the hair with hair spray, allowing the product to dry, and then shaping the hair with either their fingers or a brush. Be careful about doing this too much, however. Hair spray contains alcohol and if your hair gets too dry the frizziness will only get worse.Always use a wide tooth comb and try to gently detangle your hair while it is wet. Never brush wet hair, however. It is best to allow the hair to drip dry. Beware of straightening products. Most contain harsh chemicals that will damage your hair over time and can lead to hair loss. If you feel you must straighten your hair use a steam straightening device set to the lowest temperature or go to a salon. Professional hair care products for straightening should cause less damage to your hair in the hands of a competent stylist.


FINE HAIR

With fine hair, the shorter the cut the better. Generally fine hair is very limp and cannot take the weight of a longer hair style. You should have the benefit of good sheen, however, so a short and relatively blunt style will give the illusion of volume. (Layering only makes fine hair thinner.)Don't do anything to make the hair brittle, which leads to breaking and split ends. Avoid the excessive heat of blow drying and curling irons. Read the labels of your hair care products and avoid harsh detergents like sodium lauryl sulfate. Minimize the use of hairsprays and gels that contain too much alcohol. These products will dry out the hair.Don't over condition. This leads to chemical build-up. "Leave in" conditioners are especially bad in this regard. At least once a week shampoo with a product designed for cleansing the hair only. This will combat build up from conditioners, which leaves the hair even more limp and less manageable.

THICK HAIR
Coarse or thick hair has much more body and life and so has more versatility than fine hair. Avoid blunt cuts which make the hair look bushy. Try something layered. If your hair is thick and curly, cuts that accentuate the curl will in the long run present fewer problems with hair style and care.The greatest problem with thick hair is simply its tendency toward dryness. Avoid hair products that contain alcohol such as hair sprays and gels. If at all possible, air dry rather than using a curling iron and choose a mild shampoo to promote as much softness as possible, maybe even a baby shampoo.


FRIZZY HAIR

Although the problem of frizz is most often associated with curly hair, many people experience problems with frizz in the summer due to heat and humidity. Hair that is dry, drab, and brittle will also be frizzy.You should choose both a conditioner and a shampoo designed to moisturize. Choose products that say they will "replenish" over those that speak to "volumizing" or to creating "body." With frizz, moisturizing is everything.Don't blow dry or use a curling iron. At night or on a weekend when you plan to stay in, apply jojoba oil to your hair, wrap it in plastic, and if possible leave it there through the night. Do not shampoo daily. Wear a hat when you are in the sun. Hair can sunburn just as seriously as the skin. Be religious about getting your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks.


OILY HAIR

With oily hair, on the other hand, you want to shampoo daily with a formula specifically for your hair type. Leave the lather in at least five minutes and repeat. Don't use a conditioner, especially not one of the "leave in" variety. You may also apply a mild astringent to the scalp such as witch hazel.When you brush or comb your hair try not to touch the scalp. The old method of brushing hair with one hundred strokes a day is actually a technique to spread and distribute hair's natural oils. With oily hair that's the last thing you want to do. Bush and comb as briefly and as infrequently as possible.

* A women's hormonal balance is very different to that of a man due to which they often have huge mood swings; this usually occurs during the time one expects her monthly period.
* A women's metabolism is generally (not always) slower than that of a man's due to which the struggle to stay slender and fit is greater in a woman most times.
* Due to a slower metabolism rate, women tend to have a poor blood circulation, which is usually manifested through cold feet and hands in all types of seasons.
