Find Cute Sunglasses and Wear them

Sunglasses were designed to protect your eyes from the sun’s harsh rays, but they also protect the extra-delicate skin around your eyes as well. Sunglasses will also keep you from squinting too much, which may also cause wrinkles.

Get Some Sleep

Zzzzzz. Are you getting enough sleep at night? You know that when your body is stressed it produces cortisol. A body that isn’t getting enough sleep feels stressed and produces more cortisol, resulting in the breakdown of skin cells. Sleep, on the other hand, ensures your body has enough time to produce the Human Growth Hormone, which helps your body make repairs while you sleep.

Tips For This Autumn In Dressing!

| Beauty, Fashion | No Comments

You don’t need to be a Jean Paul Gaultier to realize that black cocktail dress goes with anything. The same goes for shoes. A pair of good black pumps will go with virtually anything you wear. Of course on some occasions you may want to experiment. Colour coordinating is a talent anybody can learn by paying attention to small details. In example for men if you want to pick a tie, go with a color that matches with your socks and other assocories. It won’t be long before that cute secretary will start to notice you’re considered a sharp dresser in the office and if you work with prospecting clients, they will always appreciate it when you are dressed to impress. Christopher Smyks designs are a good example of paying attention to the season.

Tips For This Autumn In Dressing!

For women its a little bit more difficult. Its always handy to have at least a few different shoulder bags to choose from, darker colors to match darker outfits and brighter colors for brighter outfits for spring and summer. Personally, I’m always fond of the more pastel colors for pants and skirts, to leave the brighter colors coming out more for shirts, sweaters and blazers. Of course again, black goes with anything. So if you have a black dress or skirt you can put virtually any color sweater or blazer on. When wearing a gardigan, you can experiment a little more with the blouse you wear underneath. Don’t be afraid to experiment and ask a good friend for his or her opinion. As often is the case: Less is more. So when wearing jewelry with anything, keep it simple, specially when the shirt or top you are wearing is already noisy. Some women like to wear a lot of jewelry, which is fine when you are in example wearing black, but I wouldn’t recommend it with bright colors or with a noisy pattern. After all, you wouldn’t want people on the street asking you for a palm reading or where your crystal ball is.

There are also big color coordination no nos, when wearing pink pants don’t wear a red sweater. The same goes for any pastel color, if you wear a pastel color you simply can not combine it with another variation of the same color. This is where some people go wrong and where you might get asked if you washed them together in the laundry, which can be very embarrasing I assure you.

Another good advice is to check for fashion shows in your area, or the latest fashion magazines and of course the internet. You’d be amazed at what you can pick up looking at the big names like Louis Vuitton and Christian Lacroix. On top of that they make great for great outings with a good friend and good subject of conversation.

For men it never hurts to ask that snappy dresser at the office where they got that great looking suit, it makes for nice watercooler conversation not to mention a good sign to show you have that interest.

British Family Makes Headlines By Bringing Into Light The Unavailability Of UK Made Clothing

| Beauty | No Comments

A British Family has recently hit the headlines by making stunning vow to buy all British made products and even stating that they had not ventured to the high street to buy clothes for a long seven months citing that the big brands of the country stay away from homemade fashion apparel.

UK made ClothingThe family members of James Bradshaw have even started to track down several websites that sell clothes made in the United Kingdom. They simply manufacture garments of their own in their home and do not buy clothing apparel of any other country from the markets of Britain.

The Bradshaw family received immense attention in the country after their idea to rely on British manufactured items was posted in an internet blog called Snowballed. Meanwhile, the coming month would observe a ‘British Family’ fete that would be supported by more than 40 participating companies.

According to Mr. Bradshaw, they were able to get most of the country-made things required for living from the stores of UK, even at extremely cheaper price. Even the electronic goods of the brands made in United Kingdom were cheaper in comparison to the foreign ones. However, they struggled to find clothing apparel from their own country. The head of the family even outburst his anguish and amusement stating that he does not understand the reason behind big retailers of the country not investing or doing much to promote country-made clothing throughout Britain.

He even stated that there was a variety of odd websites; but his wife had started to produce clothes for them at home itself. There are several chain stores that are explicitly discussing to launch garments made in Britain. However, the promise is still unfulfilled.

With a view to these developments, The Daily Telegraph came up with a report stating that John Lewis was sending back a portion of their textile production to the United Kingdom from Europe. However, the departmental store chain insisted that it is very hard to source out clothing apparel manufactured in the United Kingdom. Presently, the company would be starting to repatriate innumerable products ranging from sheets to towels.

Once an associated brand of UK fashion industry, Marks & Spencer had even initiated to redirect investments back into the clothing apparel manufacturing industry of Britain. They had even claimed that the best range of British clothing is manufactured in over 14 locations of the country, which even include Carlisle, Manchester and Leicester.

To add to woes to this information revealed by Bradshaw family, it is also reported that a leading fashion chain of the United States, J Crew, is all set to charge 40 percent extra from all British customers, than what they initially charge at any store at New York. The company is eying to open their store in London near the end of this year. This has even spurted a wave of protests in many quarters of the British society. The founder of Consumer Action Group, Marc Grander even exclaimed that it is unfair for the US company to think that the citizens of Britain can pay more price than the Americans.

Beauty Schools Extracting Excess Money From Students Rather Than Contributing To Skilled Employment Generation

| Beauty | No Comments

Emily Rueb reported an extraordinary expose in an article featured in the New York Times regarding the rampant cheating of beauty schools and their various tactics to leave students drown in debts rather than creating channels of opportunity in the employment sector.

Entering into the occupation of hair cutting in the region of New York requires a graduation certificate from a barber school. However, this certification is determined by the total hour of training session undergone by the student, rather than verifying their effective skills related to the service. In addition, the number of training hours a student has to attend is also determined by the said NYS barber school, which certainly gives a wide range of session hours varying between each barber school of the region.

Beauty SchoolsThere are also several other constraints in the field of practicing or opportunity factor in the employment sector. In case any student gets the license to undertake hair-cutting service in New Mexico, Maine or Pennsylvania, he or she is able to enjoy privileges related to reciprocity rules. However, in case anyone is a licensee from the region of New Jersey, then that would not suffice for carrying on the practice in any region of Hudson. On the other hand, no such explanations are given to the students regarding such licensing rules based on regional employment and practicing restrictions at various areas under any specified hair-cutting license.

The complicated licensing technique is not over here. This general barber license does not offer the platform or permission to practicing students the right to engage in extensive hairstyling arrangements involving dyes, water, heat application, hair curling, straightening hair or application of any kind of chemical for altering color of hair. An additional 1000 hours of training at an authorized cosmetology school is highly essential. Above all, the barber also needs to pass an extensive test that involves demonstration of practical skills and several other multiple-choice questions.

It is definitely a silly idea to get exceptional training and license to carry out simple job of dying or straightening hair. Rather, the certification programs based on attending a definite time period is really very awkward. However, in case licensing of beauty salons were done on the simple basis of certification, then passing the test would have sufficed to start the business and a cost-effective training session would have been sufficient.

In addition, under such a situation, all beauty schools would require effective means to develop self-instructions along with advanced apprentice arrangements of several kinds. Instead of focusing on various issues related to upgrade the training sessions for students enrolled for having a future in beauty salons, the 1000 hours certification program for obtaining license by the licensing board is highly responsible to create a profitable and cozy business scheme for various training and licensing institutions.

As a result of this, the qualitative rate of effective education is down sliding and even the quality of teaching certainly turns out to be irrelevant in respect to the model of on-going business.
