Diamond Necklaces - The Darlings of Fashion

A formal evening outfit just isn't complete without the darling of fashion - a diamond necklace. Diamond necklaces simply complete the elegance that every woman wants to express on those special occasions. Like the Mona Lisa without her smile, the look wouldn't be the same without this critical piece of the puzzle. From single diamond solitaire necklaces to multi-diamond encrusted displays, diamond necklaces will always occupy that soft spot in a woman's heart.

What better feeling could there be than that of placing a beautiful strand of diamonds around the neck of the one you continue to fall more in love with each and every day. Her reaction to such a gift will be overwhelming and she will always remember that special moment.

Diamond Necklaces vs. Diamond Pendants:
History is on the side of diamond necklaces. You might recall a famous blue diamond that eventually became known as the Hope Diamond. It is currently set in a beautiful, diamond studded necklace and is owned by the Smithsonian. It is the epitome of elegance and the standard bearer for elegant diamond necklaces.
Where a diamond jewelry necklace has diamonds throughout the necklace strand, diamond pendants typically feature diamonds in the "pendant" portion while the necklace is gold or silver and doesn't contain diamonds. Both offer elegant and beautiful, although different looks, for either formal or semi formal occasions respectively.

Choker or Full Length Necklaces:
Diamond choker necklaces hug the neck and give a different look than full length diamond necklaces. They are typically 14 to 16 inches in length and they can have a length adjustment apparatus close to the clasp. If the recipient has a long neck, a diamond choker can look especially elegant. If a shorter neck, then a more thin choker is desired along with, perhaps, a pendant so a lengthening effect is achieved.

If a person is tall, they can wear any length necklace they desire, from a choker to a full length necklace up to 40 inches or longer. A choker will de-emphasize one's height and place the emphasis on the elegant neckline. It will also focus more attention to the face. If an average size person is wishing to complement their attire, a slightly longer length necklace will be perfect. If the person is a plus size then a longer length necklace is desirable to lengthen the person's appearance. The same applies for shorter women who should strive to wear an 18 to 24 inch diamond necklace so they appear taller than they actually are.

As we get older, we lose some of the youthful appearance we once had. By wearing a longer necklace, emphasis can be placed on the necklace instead of the neck and face. A pendant dangling from the necklace can also serve to take more attention from the facial area.

Facial Shape - Choose the Right Length Necklace
The shape of a woman's face can be a good indicator as to the length of a diamond necklace she will look best in. Women with round face shapes will look their best while wearing longer diamond necklaces since this will provide a lengthening effect. If shorter chokers are worn by a person with a round face shape, the shorter necklace will magnify the roundness of their face.

If a woman's face is more oval, then any length necklace will be appropriate and will look elegant for that special occasion.

Hopefully the guidelines above will assist you in choosing the right kind of diamond or pendant necklace for that special someone. Whether you are searching for a diamond necklace containing white diamonds or fancy colors like yellow or champagne diamonds, if you follow the simple suggestions above, you can't miss.

Tips on Bridal Headdress for Long Hair - The Classic Chignon

This most fashionable hairstyle is so popular with ladies that it is no surprise to learn it is a very popular hairstyle for brides too. Taken from the French word meaning 'nape of the neck', a classic chignon or bun can be worn low down or can be taken high up to create a more dramatic effect.

photo credit: bridalguide.com
There are variants on this hair style that can completely change the whole overall look so it is worth spending some time with your bridal hair stylist to find the style that suits you, your dress and your headdress most effectively. If you are thinking of a more informal low and loose chignon, there are several bridal headdresses that will look fantastic. It may be worth asking a company to design one specifically for your hair and style but look out for circlets and vines.

photo credit: bridesparkle.com
Circlets are just that, a circle design using semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, Swarovski crystals or a combination of all that fully encompasses your chignon. You can then opt for a droplet effect that falls down underneath the chignon to accentuate the drama of the style. The circlet can be as wide as you choose and with as much detail on as you choose. If you desire a more embellished overall look for your bridal hair style then why not think about some bridal hair pins with either silk flowers or fresh water pearls that tie in with the circlet. Your bridesmaids can then co-ordinate with you with either flower hairpins or combs and a circlet necklace to tie the whole look together.

photo credit: followpics.co
The hair vines are also great headdresses to wear with the chignon style as these are usually made using silver wire and can therefore be wrapped around your style to create a very dramatic encompassing look. The vine itself is a bridal hair comb that is adorned with all manner of beautiful things, for example carved shellflowers, Swarovski crystals or fresh water pearls. This is set at the top of your chignon style and the vines wrap around the sides to create a waterfall effect. The look is beautiful and very unusual.

If you want a more understated look for your chignon then what could be better than gorgeous simple hair flowers or bridal hairpins. These can be secured in a more haphazard manner to create a very informal and feminine look. Dotted around your hairstyle to create flair of imagination that oozes classic chic and individuality.

How to Find Plus Size Vintage Clothing and Make it Fit

Do you love the look of vintage clothing but have a hard time finding it in a larger size?  It takes patience and persistence to find vintage clothing that fits.  When you are shopping consider wearing not only a correctly fitted bra but also a full slip to help smooth you and help the vintage slide on and off.  Here are some creative ideas to help you find and wear vintage clothing in a plus size.

photo credit: modcloth.com
Expand your choices - look in different departments.
When you are shopping for larger size vintage widen your field. Look in other departments like men's wear.  A lot of men's shirts can be tailored with darts or a belt to give you a nipped in waist. Hawaiian or resort wear has fun patterns and colors. Tux jackets have potential and are available in black, charcoal,shades of white and pastel colors. Look for pullover sweaters and vests instead of button up since the fabric usually has more give to it . Men's lounge wear like robes and jackets can make wonderful evening wear. Fabric ties can be replaced with belts to change the look. Check the women's vintage lingerie section. Lingerie can be layered as daywear instead of night wear. A long robe can be shortened to wear as a jacket. Look for lingerie gowns or nightgowns, add a camisole or a slip underneath to transition into daywear - maybe add leggings . Look at pajama tops and pants, wrap dresses and housecoats. Can you add accessories to change the look ? Wear a robe as a wrap dress ? Separates have a better chance of fitting than a dress and you can mix and match.

Take a second look - rethink the decades
A lot of fashion is a reinterpretation or reworking of previous styles. If you like the 40's look have you considered clothing made in the 80's ? You'll see peplums, big shoulders and flared skirts. Add the right accessories and you'll have a retro 40's look. Plus the clothes made in the 80's are more in tune with today's body size. Certain fashions in the 70's had a 1930's feel with cap sleeves and a softer romantic look in slinky fabrics. The 60's recycled a longer looser look in pants and dresses that can look like the 20's. Today's capri pants have a vintage 50's look. Pair with a vintage shirt and create a retro look. Add a piece of vintage jewelry, a hat or scarf to a contemporary piece and give it vintage flare.

Measure and know your measurements
Use your tape measure and know your measurements.  When you try on vintage, wear a good slip and bra so it's not only easier to get it on but you'll have a smoother shape to check the look and fit. Be open to some renovation or adjustments to make the piece perfect for you. Can you move a button to get more room? Can a wrap dress be worn more loosely ? Can you wear a shirt open as a jacket?   If it fits and there's a spot, can you cover it with a bit of decoration or trim? Don't always go for the baggiest thing on the rack. Baggy makes you look bigger - if you need the largest size then try to tailor it to fit with a belt or sash or some tucks.

Revamp your choices and changing vintage
Should you change a piece of vintage clothing or not? Some people think that changing vintage clothing is like changing a piece of history. Others point out that people have always changed clothing to make it fit, to update it and to pass it along to the next in line. If you're handy or have a good tailor you can remake vintage to fit a larger size with imagination and creativity. Here's some revamp ideas.
  • Remove shoulder pads or inner linings to give more room
  • Split a dress up the sides like a tunic to make it fit, then wear it over leggings.
  • If it fits in the bust but is too big in the waist, sew in elastic inside at the waist to make a better fit
  • For circle skirts that are too small in the waist cut off the waist band and sew in elastic to your size
  • Vintage sweater a little small? Try tying it around your shoulders or wear it slung over your shoulders with a sweater guard
  • PJ pants cut as clam diggers
  • Try inserts of lacing, lace or stretch fabric to get more give
  • Move buttons over a little in button up shirts
  • Too short ? Then add a band of lace or ruffles at the bottom hem
  • Can't button it in front? Drape a scarf around your neck and wear it inside the garment.  It won't be as noticeable, especially if the scarf matches closely in color.

Uggs Boots Are the Best Most Comfortable Boot You Will Ever Wear

Uggs boots are fast becoming a hot fashion item in the US and Canada, and for good reason. Ugg boots are wonderful Australian footwear that is making their presence felt in the worldwide fashion footwear arena.
Uggs boots are what are known by some as sheepskin boots. These boots have been made in Australia for tens if not hundreds of years, and are well known all over Australia. However now they are making an impact on foreign markets.

photo credit: snowbootsbigmall.com
An Ugg boot is made from the skin of an Australian merino sheep most commonly. The wool part of the skin faces into the inside of the boot and so lies against the leg. This results in a warm soft feel to the boot that is found only from wearing Uggs boots. The Ugg is unique in the level of comfort it offers to the wearer, and devotees of Uggs will maintain tenaciously that Uggs are the most comfortable boot on planet, unsurpassed by any other form of footwear.

The Ugg boot has the soft pliable skin of the sheep facing out as it has the woollen part of the skin facing in. This results in a soft outer or exterior skin to the boot that means that Uggs can be a little prone to damage and wear when used in wet weather or inclement, dirty or muddy conditions. The boot is not the most hard wearing of footwear, and so wearers of Uggs boots learn quickly that they need to use some discretion when selecting which day to wear their Uggs outdoors.

The sheepsking is usually sewn onto a plastic sole, and so the boot is not entirely waterproof. Water can enter around the sole, and although it is possible to buy Ugg waterproofing it is not a total solution. If you own a pair of Uggs it's better to treat your boots with care and respect and understand that even the best Uggs are not ideal for hard outdoor use and will wear out and get dirty quite quickly if treated too harshly.
However once the limitations of the boot are recognised and the owner of a pair of Uggs learns to use some discretion for just when they are worn, a pair of Uggs will last quite well.

photo credit: pinterest.com/pin/396105729700691938/
Ugs can be the most comfortable boot you will ever wear. The unique qualities of the sheepskin mean that they will keep your feet warm in even the coldest of weather, but that if you wear them in summer they will not overheat your foot. The sheepskin breathes extremely well and the air spaces formed next to your leg by the looseness of the wool means that your lower leg and foot will be comfortable in the boot even in warm weather.

And Uggs are great indoors where waterproofness isn't an issue, and make wonderful house slippers. They can be bought in various lengths, so that you can get Uggs that come right up your lower leg to just below your knee, or ankly length Uggs that come up just above the ankle making ideal indoor slippers.
Over the last few years Uggs have become fashion footwear. They now come in all sorts of colors, styles and designs and are very popular in the US and Canada. Unfortunately this has resulted in Uggs becoming extremely expensive, with prices up to or over $500 a pair in some cases for the best of the best fashion boots.

It is possible to find cheaper Uggs but you need to be a canny online shopper to do so.
Anybody, from the very young to the very old, can enjoy a pair. It is quite possible to buy baby Uggs and they are ideal for the elderly who may suffer from poor circulation and cold feet. In both of these cases it may not matter so much about whether these wonderful sheepskin boots are fashionable or not, but in each case the wearer will love them.

Uggs boots are great footwear for anybody. From the very young to the very old a pair will be comfortable and enjoyable to wear, and for the fashion conscious they look great. Consider a pair of sheepskin boots for your next footwear purchased.

Raw Food Diet to Cleanse and Detox Your Body

Are you considering the transition to a Raw Food Diet for weight loss and/or health reasons? There are certainly many good reasons to include more raw foods in your diet, even if they don't ultimately comprise 75% of your total diet which is typically considered to be the goal of food rawism. Following are some guidelines and menu ideas to help you make that transition.

Fruits, Vegetables and Fats
Your daily menus should include a healthy balance of vegetables, fruits and fats. The vegetables should include dark green, leafed vegetables such as spinach, lettuces, chard, kale and collards. Sugary fruits such as melons, oranges, papayas and mangoes are important. The plant foods containing fats like avocados, coconut, olives, and nuts are filling and satiating and also provide lubrication and oil necessary.
To make salad dressings, you can blend a plant fat and a sugary fruit to complete the greens. For example, combine an orange and an avocado in a blender to make a delicious, natural raw food salad dressing.
Dairy products should be raw and unpasteurized. Soy milk is recommended as it is uncooked and has a high fat content.

Transitioning
To transition from your current diet to a raw foods diet, try to include as many raw foods into your diet as possible. Find sources for organic foods locally through farmer's markets and your local health food stores to prevent ingesting the pesticides that are often present on grocery store fruits and vegetables.
A single cooked food should be eaten in the evening preferably along with a large salad and fresh juiced vegetables. Eliminating first red meat followed by pork and then chicken and fish is recommended to transition from animal sourced foods.

Quantities
You should feel free to eat as much fresh fruit and vegetables as you desire. Suggestions for women's daily intake are 6 pounds of fruit, 2.5 pounds of vegetable and .25 pounds of seeds or nuts. For men, 7.5 pounds of fruit, 3 pounds of vegetables and .33 pounds of seeds or nuts. Though this sounds like a lot, keep in mind that there is a lot of water contained in raw fruits and vegetables.

Sample Daily Menu
Breakfast: 3 pounds of watermelon or one large honeydew melon with the juice of 2 coconuts.
Lunch: 2 mangoes, 3 sticks of celery and 1 avocado or 1 green-leaf salad with 3 stalks of celery, 10-20 walnuts and juice from 1 lemon.

Snack: 2 mangoes OR 2 oranges
Dinner: Large salad with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and green onions, a handful of raw sunflower seeds, 2 avocados and 1 freshly squeezed lemon or a large salad containing 80% dark green-leafed vegetables with 20-30 macadamia nuts and squeezed orange dressing along with 1 quart of fresh vegetable and fruit juice.
For the ultimate cleanse and body detox, you should combine a colon cleanse with a raw food diet. Why? The colon cleanse gets rid of built up toxins and mucoid plaque in the colon and allows the nutrients of a healthy diet and raw foods to be absorbed.

This is a very basic, easy to prepare menu that you will want to play with to create a variety. You want to include as many different fruits and vegetables into your daily diet as you can to insure getting all of the nutrients nature provides as well as keep it interesting to your palate.

The Lemonade Diet - Cleansing and Detoxing Your Body in Ten Days

Thousands of people have done this lemonade diet, cleansing their bodies from the inside out. The diet lasts for ten days and basically all you do is drink glasses of the special lemonade all day. I know it sounds like a breeze...

photo credit: dietlookup.com
This is also known as the 'Master Cleanse' because it is meant to help thoroughly cleanse your insides and remove unwanted toxins from your body. Advocates of the diet are often happy to do this ten day diet several times a year at least. It was first introduced by a naturopath, Stanley Burroughs, who brought the diet to paper in Hawaii in 1941. So it's been around for a very long time. You can read up about it on the internet or buy one of the many books on the subject.

The diet itself is simple and made up of only four ingredients. For one glass you need 10oz good quality water, 2 tablespoons of freshly pressed lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of good quality maple syrup and a pinch of cayenne pepper. You should be drinking six to ten glasses of this lemonade every day, ten days long. That's it! No solid food but you can drink water and herbal tea as well. It is said that this lemonade has all the nutrients your body needs.

I have done this several times. I didn't get hungry but I got bored and kept thinking of 'real' food. Doing this for ten days gives your body the necessary time for the toxins to be eliminated and to clean your intestines. The lemonade diet is easy and cheap. Make sure the ingredients are as fresh and pure as possible. If you can't manage the whole ten days, then do what you can. Every day is good. There are people who decide to incorporate this into their daily lives and do it once a week. It's up to you. Don't stress yourself about it.

Go and visit your doctor before you embark on the diet. This diet isn't for you if you have diabetes, cancer, gallstones, high blood pressure or intestinal issues. Keep away from it if you have an eating disorder or if you are underweight. Children, pregnant or nursing mothers should also give it a pass.

If you decide to go on the lemonade diet, cleansing and detoxing can mean that you feel a bit nauseous along the way. This is often because the toxins are now going through your body on their way out. The same applies if you get headaches. If the nausea or headaches continue, please see your doctor.

If you feel the lemonade diet could help you, then do give it a try. It's great if you do it for ten days but any day on the diet is a day you are helping your body cleanse itself.

Hair Color Secrets - Which Color is Right For You?

Hair color correction is a big money maker in salons nationwide. The reason: over-the-counter coloring products have given consumers the impression that hair color is easy and extremely affordable. One look at a professionally-colored model on a commercial or glossy magazine page, and many people clamor to the closest drug store to purchase a $5 box of color with the hopes of receiving a $50 salon look.

photo credit: abeautyclub.com

photo credit: longhairstyleblog123.com
The results are often disastrous, and it can take hundreds of dollars to correct a coloring problem that could have been prevented with just a tiny bit of knowledge and planning.

The most common problem seen with hair coloring at home and in salons is choosing a color that is too light for the natural shade of your locks. Realistically, color can only lighten hair beautifully by a few shades. If you go any lighter than a few shades, you need to choose a high-lift product such as bleach or a professional highlighting system. Failure to do this often results in hair color that is much too brassy or even orange.
Word to the wise: high-lift hair coloring should only be performed by professionals. The controlled chemicals used in the process, if used incorrectly, can result in irreparable damage and/or chemical burns on the scalp and skin.

photo credit: fashiononline.com.ng
Another coloring mistake that is seen quite often is choosing a color that is too dark. Extremely dark hair color can be the most challenging to correct because dark color can actually stain the cortex (inner layer) of the hair, making it almost impossible to lighten. Again, avoid choosing colors that are more than a few shades darker than your own to prevent a costly cortex stain.

When it comes to choosing the right shade to use, pick tones and shades that flatter your skin tone. Choose warm shade (reds and warm browns) if you look best in warm-colored clothing such as reds, pinks and oranges. Choose a cool shade (beige, pale blonde highlights and neutral colors) if you look best in blues and greens.

photo credit: nailthedeal.com
As you can see, just a little bid of planning and knowledge can save you from costly hair coloring disasters. And by making an informed decision before you purchase hair color, you will not only save money, you will also save your hair from needless damage.

Hair color is a chemical, and every time you chemically process your hair, you damage it to some extent. The damage can be minimal, as is usually the case with high-end professional hair coloring systems, or can be extreme. And each time you use hair color to correct a problem, you are damaging your hair even more.
Here are just a few tell-tale signs that your hair has been over processed with hair color and other chemicals.
- The hair is limp and dull, and no amount of styling can bring back its luster and bounce.

photo credit: nonpermanenthaircolor.org
- The color has faded dramatically, and you are left with brassy and banded hair color. (Banded hair color is evident by the sudden change of hair color along the hair shaft. For example: the hair may be dark until about 2" from the scalp where it turns a brassy orange.)

- The hair is extremely dry and brittle. When it is wet, it is almost impossible to comb it without causing breakage.

1. Eye makeup - while you're bundled under layers of the latest winter fashion pieces, your face - and especially your eyes - really take the spotlight. Go for a smoky appearance with dark browns and charcoal shadows for stand out eyes. Choose a voluminous mascara for bold, thick and dramatic lashes to complete the look.

2. Foundation - matte skin is in this season and models are sporting pale hues with bold eyes and sweeping cheeks dominating the facial canvas. A makeup primer will help you achieve an even matte finish when coupled with a good mineral foundation that matches your skin tone. Winter Tip: if you notice any patchy, dry spots after you apply your foundation, you can dab a dollop of moisturiser over problem areas to help reduce their flaky appearance.

Choose a mineral foundation for flawless looking skin and top it off with simple mascara and nude lips. Balance your look with bold, well defined eyebrows or try some bright red lipstick for a more feminine and classic look.

Fish Tail Braid - How to Braid Hair

A fishtail braid is much like the name suggests: a herringbone crafted from hair. Its allure is largely the result of the intricacy of the overall design. Creating your own fish tail braid is not as hard as it may look. Although it will require a bit of patience to do it correctly, once you have grasped the concept satisfactorily you will be able to broaden the range of styles you are able to try on your hair. When crafted accurately your ponytail or up-do will look sensational and creative.

How to Braid Hair
To begin place all the hair into a ponytail with a clip that will keep the hair neatly in place. For a better outcome the hair should be dry and medium to long in length and devoid of layers.

Segment the hair into two parts of equal portions. Take a small section from beneath the left segment of no greater than one inch and put it over the right segment of the hair.

Allow the tiny bit now on the right side to combine with the right segment by freeing the thumb while grasping it securely. Repeat the step for the right side by using an equal section of hair from the right side and putting it beneath the left portion while holding it securely and allowing it to merge completely with the left side.
You will continue doing this for the entire process being sure to pay attention to detail and by actually taking equal sections from each portion.

Once you have completed creating the fishtail it should look symmetrical and masterfully woven. Grab an elastic band and tie it to the bottom of the braid to secure it and prevent it from unravelling. Ensure the elastic is one which will not entangle your hair causing split ends.

You can place certain hair accessories in your hair to make the braid look more becoming. A couple well positioned pins with the right touch will make your fishtail stand out even more. It is actually easy to do once you get the hang of it. Be sure that you braid the hair to the bottom, so that should the elastic slip off, the hair will not instantly unravel. It will also look exceptional on hair that is thick with rich hues and highlights all over the strands. You can also add bangs to the hair to give it a bit more inventiveness to the style.
You can also do a full fish tail braid quite easily.

The steps will be similar with a little minor differences. Instead of using a clip to create a ponytail you will have to begin at the top of the head, if you are wearing a fringe then you will need to remove that segment from the braid. Create a triangular section and then proceed to overlap the hair as shown in the previous steps. You may also wear the braid in an up-do once you have done a full head version of the style. By pinning it above or below the braid you will transform the style into a more regal display.
