Clean Gold Jewelry

Gold is tarnish-resistant, but it can get dirty or smudged. Lotions, powders, soaps, even natural skin oils that we use regularly can cover your jewelry and cut down their brilliance. Jewelry cleaning removes any such build-up or residue and restores the original sparkle and shine to make your precious jewelries last a lifetime.

Although numerous commercial products are available to clean gold jewelry, most often water and a mild detergent is sufficient to restore the radiance, and a soft brush helps to gently clean intricate filigree designs and stones. Sometimes it can be helpful to soak the gold jewelry in a solution of one part ammonia and six parts water for up to sixty seconds. It is imperative to dry and polish your gold jewelry with a chamois or soft cloth after cleaning.

Jewelry polishing cloths are an effective and inexpensive way of keeping your bits of gold glittering and radiant. These essential cotton cloths help to remove tarnish and to buff jewelry to look as good as new. Avoid wearing jewelry while in contact with household chemicals, such

All about Cardigans

Cardigans Looks

It seems that just as the old saying goes “there is someone out there for everyone”, there is also a cardigan out there for everybody.
The older man will fall in love with a fisherman’s cardigan or maybe a nice wool cardigan for the golf course. His wife will pop down to the shops in a Marks & Spencer special and as for his children, his daughter will probably be out down the pub in a trendy tight fitting little cardigan from the Gap and his son will be posing down another pub in an expensive Armani number. So as far as looks are concerned, the cardigan has passed the test of time with flying colours.

Cardigans Strengths

Wool cardigans are warm, can be both smart and casual, and are idea for the unpredictable British weather as they can be worn buttoned up when it is really cold and then unbuttoned as the temperature rises. If you like the quite life, not many people will try to talk with you if you wear

Benefits of Matte Lipstick

Minimal transfer – this type of lipstick is basically smudge-free. It stays in place after the initial application and is unlikely to spread over the course of the day. It is a great lip product to give the confidence of knowing it will not transfer when going about everyday activities, such as eating a sandwich or drinking a cup of coffee. Other types of lipstick need to be wiped frequently, but this isn’t the case with the matte products.

Natural looking – even though matte lipstick can give a bold look, they are still very effective at creating a natural appearance that is completely different to many of the glossy types.

Warm weather – this lipstick is a practical option to wear on hot summer days. Many of the glossy lipsticks will start to smudge and get easier to remove. This is caused by the heat and when you start to sweat. Even in hot temperatures, the matte lipstick will not heat up and stays in place with no loss of appearance.

More control – it is possible

Look Great In Swimwear

Choose the right colors

A colorful swimwear will make you feel brighter and happier, but the fact is that bright colors highlight your body. If you have areas that you would rather keep hidden then it is a better idea to choose solid colors. You can of course choose a two-piece swimwear so you can have the solid color around the part of your body you are not too comfortable with and the bright parts on areas you wish to flaunt. Darker skinned women look good in bright colors, whereas navy blues and dark purples make great choices for pale skins.

Dress your body shape

A swimwear can look very beautiful in your eyes, but it does not mean that it will look good on you. If you are looking for the best swimwear then you must start by knowing your body shape and what works for it. For instance, women with large busts can minimize the appearance by going for a suit that has wide set straps and straight across cut around the top. Bikini tops that have underwire offer great support too, whereas small busted women can add curves and cleavage in a

Dress to Look Young

Try out a new hairstyle. Visit a hairdresser, they will be able to advise and styled your hair to suit you, bringing out that radiant in you.

If you are still wearing glasses, why not give it a try with contact lens? You can have excellent peripheral vision and at the same time, ease, comfort and convenience. Not forgetting to mention, a more youthful look. Don’t you love the way you naturally look without your glasses?

Try out new styles; add a little color to your daily wear. Yes, appropriate dressing for work is important, especially when your job involves frequent meeting with clients. But still, that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to the same old boring dull clothing everyday. Well, as long as they are not too short, too tight, too revealing and too bright, you can still have fun with mixing and matching while maintaining your professional image.

For instance, instead of the usual dull

Types of Makeup Brushes

Foundation – the face brush is available in several different types to match the preferred finish. For instance, the buffing brush is the right option to create the airbrushed finish, while the flat brush is more effective at giving full coverage. Also, the flat brush with its angled design is useful for precision work when looking to add concealer to specific facial areas.

Powder – a fluffy or soft brush is a useful tool to help concealer or foundation last throughout the day. This type of brush is great for applying a light application of powder that won’t look cakey or fake. A large brush is the preferred option to minimize shine over the T-zone, while a small brush is more suited to small or sensitive areas, such as under the eyes.

Blusher – the most effective brushes to apply blush are typically medium in size with lightweight, dense bristles and a slightly rounded tip. The best brushes are great at picking up the right volume of blush that can easily be distributed over the cheeks.

Cream blusher – a rounded, firm brush is a great tool to apply cream blusher. It is best applied

Handbag Or Toolbag

Thirty years on, the style and shape of her handbag may have changed, but I guarantee you would still be able to change a spare tyre or prevent nuclear war by poking through the contents of my mother’s handbag.

Alas, it seems to be a trait that has passed from mother to daughter, because I’m the one amongst all my gal pals who can always be counted on to produce a Bandaid for a cut finger, or the perfect lip gloss for a touch up. Oh, and I’m always the one with the spare tissues and tampons.

I would like to ask Dr Freud about my peculiar predilection for carrying the entire contents of my bedroom (and kitchen, and bathroom) in my handbag, but he would probably relate it to some female sexual inadequacy problem. (Penis envy sounds like a good one!)

What never ceases to amaze me is what on earth can the celebs who walk down the red carpet at those gala events possibly fit into an evening bag the size of a matchbox? Heck, they look like they haven’t got room for a match let alone a matchbox.

I always imagine

About Stockings

Nylon stockings were scarce during WWII because all available nylon was needed in the war effort. A lot of nylon was used in making parachutes. Production of nylon stockings started up again at the end of WWII.

A new trend in stockings was started in the 1960s with the introduction of pantyhose. Until the introduction of pantyhose, stockings had to be worn with garter belts or girdles. The stockings were held up with clasps attached to the girdle or garter belt. Today, pantyhose are available in a multitude of styles. These stockings come in sheer, ultra sheer, nude, sandal toe, and reinforced toe. Some pantyhose come with built in body shaping and control tops to trim and smooth the tummy, rear, and hips. Women can even buy an anti-cellulite pantyhose. These stockings promise to reduce cellulite appearance by using micro beads imbedded into the fabric. Results are visible after four weeks. The beads remain effective for five washings. The stockings firm and tone legs for a sleeker look.

Nylon stockings come in a wide variety of colors and are also available as anklets, knee highs and thigh highs. Support hose are even available for those women

Look Fabulous in White

1. White reflects light so wherever you wear it you will bring attention. Having said that, if you have any body parts you don’t want to appear larger don’t accentuate that area by adorning it in white and wearing a dark color next to it. What you can do is wear white from head- to- toe so no particular area has focus. For example, if you have large hips don’t wear white bottoms with a dark top because the eye will be drawn to the bottom. Instead, wear a white top and white pants and use accessories to take the focus away from the problem area. Or wear white on top and black on the bottom.

2. Wear black and white combinations with accessories to create impact. Wear a white skirt with a black top, black shoes, white handbag, and a black/white necklace. Handbags and scarves that have a black and white pattern will also bring some pizzazz. Experiment.

3. To change your look, wear white with bright colors such as pink and green. Again, choose accessories that will add interest. A pink or green bag, pink jewelry, pink shoes etc. You can also try 3

Buy a High Quality Diamond

Having knowledge means having a confident air about you when you do business with a seller. If you start the conversation by asking about the weight and the 4 C’s, the seller will automatically assume that you know more about diamonds than the average buyer, making them less likely to try and sell you something of a lesser quality at a higher price.

The first thing to consider is the Cut, which has nothing to do with the shape of the diamond. Terms such as pear, round, and princess refer to the shape of the diamond, while the cut is more about how the angles and finish reflect the light and make the gem sparkle.

Listed below are the basic rules of cut selection:

· The finest diamonds have what is referred to as an Ideal Cut, which means they will be particularly brilliant. This cut is only found on round diamonds.

· Premium Cut diamonds are also round, and while they are still a high-quality gem, they usually cost less for a seller to acquire than the Ideal Cut stones.

· Larger diamonds that reflect light well and which offer up a

Wear Womens Suede Boots

Now, womens suede boots are making a comeback. Throughout the years, this type of footwear has come into and gone out of style which in fashion terms makes this style a classic. Look around and you will see that boots made from suede are everywhere; at playhouses, at chic nightclubs, in shopping malls, at the beach and all places in between. There are so many trendy styles available and so many ways to wear womens suede boots that there is just not enough room here to list them all.

How you wear a pair of womens suede boots really is just a matter of the look that you are trying to achieve. If you are simply looking for comfort, a pair of neutral colored, ankle length boots will do the trick. The natural color of the boot will match any outfit. Don a few suede accessories such as a purse and/or a lightweight suede jacket and you will achieve a look that is comfortable and very stylish. If you are heading out for a night on the town, you will want a style that looks good. Oftentimes women have to trade off comfort for appearance. Not so

Smart and Glamorous Trouser Suit

So it is cause for celebration when designers embrace a look that is retro in the sense that it is something we all know and love, but has been sufficiently updated for us to feel that we’re getting a new look. This is what has happened to the humble trouser suit, for decades an understated and overlooked wardrobe staple, which has suddenly come into its own. At the forefront of the new wave of suits are Paul Smith, who now applies his genie-like tailoring talents to women’s suits as well as men’s; French designer Agnes b, who has built her core business around impeccably-fitted women’s suits in lightweight wool with trouser shapes ranging from drainpipe to flares; and Calvin Klein, who has been lured away momentarily from all things casual to embrace formal tailoring.

The suit has come a long way since Coco was first photographed lounging around in a man’s tweed ensemble, way back in 1929. In fact, she caused something of a storm. Although the silent movie era had featured starlets swathed in silky pyjama suits, the sight of a woman wearing a sharply tailored jacket and trousers, with the attendant undertones of androgyny and

Flip Flops

The simplest layout is that of a fleet-footed wood-based block. But throughout history there have been many changes on that design. The choice of toes to which the footwear was attached has differed from culture to culture.

The Japanese, to help young kids to learn to walk, came out with the woven sandal called “Zori”, which made its entrance to the beaches of New Zealand as early as 1900s. From this stage, Zoris created the trend for the mass popularity of flip-flops.

Flip flops came to the shores of the USA with the homecoming of the troops from the War in the mid 40s. After the Korean War, the proliferation of the rubber flip flops started the craze. From here, this amazing footwear gradually became part of the lifestyle. It was at this time when the build and quality of the footwear improved tremendously.

Nowadays, they are so popular that they no represent social class. In the beginning, the presence of flip flops on the sunny beaches of California triggered a craze. This spreads over the whole of US making them the casual footwear choice. People just like the simple design and the affordable prices.

Learning From Fashion Trends

Trend-watching–and, more precisely, observing our trend-watching–gives us tremendous opportunities to create awareness of the traits we hope we have but are not sure we do. In fact, being frustrated, embarrassed, or depressed that we have succumbed to a trend is a perfect chance to discover what we value most.

It usually comes down to this: creativity and confidence. If we find ourselves buying that trendy little bag or those must-have shoes, that little voice inside us shouts “Sell-out!” and we start to feel that perhaps we’re not all we’d hoped to be. After all, a truly creative person would buy–or even make–something unique, and a confident person wouldn’t hesitate to go against the current trend and head in a completely different direction, or choose to buy nothing at all.

And thus begins a soak in the self-loathing tub, followed inevitably by an abandoned item at the bottom of the closet.

To avoid this, you must pay attention to it.

What trendy items are buried in your closet at this moment? Why did you buy them? Who were you with when you made the purchase? How were you feeling about the world in general and

Styles of Engagement Rings

Three-Stone Engagement Ring

The three-stone rings feature a center diamond with two similar diamonds on either side. They are said to have great sentimental value as the three stones represent the past, present and future of the relationship. Princess and round cut diamonds are the most popular choices for the center stone in a three-stone ring. The two side diamonds are approximately half the carat weight as the center diamond. is usually The diamonds can be prong-set, basket-set or bezel-set.

Side-Stone Engagement Ring

Sidestone rings feature a center diamond flanked by two or more comparatively smaller diamonds on either side of it. Sidestone rings look more radiant and bright because of the additional diamonds and how they make the center stone look more distinct, bigger and shinier!

Split Shank Engagement Ring

A split shank ring features a band that splits as it reaches the center stone. These are one of the modern styles of engagement rings. This style of engagement ting is a nice choice for elongated center diamonds such as pear, oval and marquise as it helps to visually balance the diamond. These split shank rings can also have micro pave diamonds

Casual Dress Mistakes to Avoid

1. When wearing casual clothes keep your jewelry, makeup and hairstyle in a casual theme. Makeup should not be noticeable – no loud colors; hair should be toned down – no updo’s or glamorous styles and jewelry should match the occasion and dress.

2. Having designer names written on your clothes does not make you fashionable – don’t become a walking advertisement. Also shirts with cute pictures of animals or teddy bears are better left worn when you are home alone.

3. Unless you are riding a motorcycle head- to- toe leather outfits such as leather pants and jacket or skirt and jacket can be too much.

4. Wearing the same color from head to toe is slimming but make sure that you wear some accessories to break it up so the color doesn’t overpower you or become boring.

5. You should feel comfortable in your clothes so, choose clothes you like, that fit well and that are most flattering for your body shape.

6. Take time to decide in advance what you want to wear so you will not end up wearing something that makes you feel uncomfortable. Most people don’t remember

Fur Coat

The emotional vibrations of fear and misery from the animals will be held in the pelt just as it is in meat. I wonder how healthy this is for the wearer.

The animal kingdoms which live alongside us are our teachers. Through them we learn about compassion, love and beauty. They patiently teach us care and devotion. The animals often sacrifice themselves in order that we experience these things and so learn to know the ‘more’ of who we are.[You don’t know who you are until you know what you are not].

I ask all of you, as the supposedly most advanced race on the planet’ do we not have a ‘duty of care’?’ Are we not responsible as guardians for the animals in our care? Yet, look at what we do to them! We hunt for sport, kill for fun and monetary gain. We breed animals for reasons like their fleet feet or looks, often producing genetic heritages which cause pain and discomfort during their lives.

What monsters we have become! We are still so near the gladiatorial ring- what next in our excesses? Shall we return to watching people kill each other for

Info of Workplace Wardrobe

e all want to look good but there is a right and a wrong way to go about it at the office. When you go for an interview, as nervous as you might be, make sure you take note of your surroundings. What are people wearing? The first few days of your new job, dress conservatively until you figure out the work “uniform.” Trust me on this, you will not start a new office dress trend by wearing something considered outlandish by current office standards. While none of us wants to be a conformist, there is moderation and then there is downright career suicide dressing.

While we all want to be individuals, a lot can be taken from Chanel’s famous quote, “be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly at night.” I cannot tell you how many times I have remarked “That is a cute outfit but why is she wearing it in the office. It is great for clubbing.” And you know your wardrobe is too over the top when the men in the office are commenting about the inappropriateness of the attire. You should never be the water cooler gossip subject when it comes to fashion.

The

Tricks Wearing Accessories

1. Choose accessories to match the outfit, not an outfit to match your accessories. Before you purchase accessories know what outfit they will go with and how you will wear them.

2. Accessories should be in balance with the weight of your clothing. For instance, if you are wearing a skirt or suit in a heavy fabric don’t wear sandals.

3. Rings are great, but wearing too many at one time will look gaudy. For business, wear only one ring on each hand. Also, if your rings have become too tight they will create an unflattering look. Getting them off and stretched to fit your finger would be a good idea.

4. Wear earrings that flatter your face shape. If you have a long face avoid long dangling earrings. The long lines of the earrings will make the face appear longer. That style is better for those who will look better with the added length to their face.

5. Eyeglasses are considered an accessory. When you wear glasses limit the accessories around your face to two.

6. Match your earrings to the style of clothes you are wearing. Pearl earrings are best worn
