4 Ways To Maintain The Value Of Your Designer Purses

Posted by on May 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

If you have a designer handbag collection, you have probably spent quite a bit of money on your purses. Therefore, you probably want to maintain their value; then, if you decide to sell them, you can get as much for them as possible. Luckily, following these tips will help you maintain your purses’ value for a long time to come. 1. Keep All Accompanying Items Although you might be tempted to rip off the tags and start using your new purse as soon as possible, it’s important to use some care when unpacking your handbag and using it for the first time. Carefully cut off any tags, and keep the original packaging, stuffing and accompanying paperwork. You may need these items to help prove that your bag is authentic if you choose to sell it later on. 2. Store Them Properly Make sure that you store your purses properly to keep them clean and looking like new. Your purses should come with dust bags, which are designed to keep your bag clean and safe from debris. If you don’t have a dust bag for each of your purses, you can also store them in pillowcases. Also, make sure that you wipe off your bags before storing them, and keep them in a cool, dry and clean place. The top shelf of a closet is a great place to store designer purses when they aren’t in use. 3. Be Careful When Cleaning If you spill something on one of your purses or otherwise notice dirt or a stain, you’ll probably want to clean your bags as soon as possible. However, you should always be careful when cleaning to help prevent fading, staining or other damage. For example, you should only use leather cleaners when cleaning leather bags. You can also take your bags to a shoe repair store or other place that offers professional leather cleaning services. Also, make sure that you condition your bags with a leather conditioner to keep them supple and beautiful and to prevent cracking. 4. Rotate Your Bags You probably don’t need another excuse to buy new handbags, but it is a good idea to rotate your bags regularly. Regular everyday use can cause staining and damage to your bags, but if you swap them out and use different ones every few months, you can help keep each bag in its best possible shape. As you can see, there are a few things that you can do to help maintain the value of your designer purses. Follow these tips, and your purses should stay valuable for a long time to...

Perfect Isn’t Easy: What You Need To Know For DIY Bridal Makeup

Posted by on Feb 10, 2015 in Uncategorized

When it comes to the big day, there can be a lot of hassle — making sure that everything and everyone is where they need to be, that the flowers get delivered and the food is prepared. With all of this stress and drama, the bridal makeup can get shoved to the side to make room for the dress fittings and cake tasting. If you’re getting ready for your wedding but are a little lost on how to fix your makeup, then here are a few tips to make bridal makeup a piece of (wedding) cake. Location, location, location You may think that your wedding venue only matters to the photographer, but you need to keep in mind the weather on your big day to make sure your makeup doesn’t go amiss. If you’re getting married in a warmer climate — and especially if you’ll be outdoors — consider investing in oil blotting sheets. These lovely little pieces of parchment will help to remove excess moisture from your skin without disturbing your makeup. Oil-free moisturizer and foundation are also good ideas for naturally dewy skin. More is less In most cases, a little subtle makeup goes a long way. Not so for your wedding — the photos, no matter how well done, will tend to wash you out, so make sure your makeup is a touch more dramatic than normal to ensure you don’t get lost in the shuffle. Make sure that you’re still comfortable — no one wants to feel like they’re buried under makeup — and that you look natural under both sunlight and artificial light. A good tip is to try on your makeup a few days before your wedding and have a friend take pictures inside and outside, so you know how your makeup plays in different environments — and in front of the camera. Start and finish The most important make up step for bridal makeup is to invest in a good skin primer. Primer keeps your face moisturized while making sure that the rest of your makeup stays firmly in place. With all of the different powders, creams, and liquids — foundation, eye shadow, liner, mascara, etc — you’re going to be applying, you’ll want to make sure that the makeup is set as soon as you apply it. When you’re done with your make up, seal it with a quick spray of light-hold hairspray. This will help you look runway ready all day long — no matter how many hugs you have to give. If you need more help, contact professional bridal services for more...

4 Tips For Mixing And Matching Patterns In Your Wardrobe

Posted by on Jan 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

Mixing and matching fashionable women’s clothing can be a mystery for some women. There are some women who worry that they don’t know how to properly mix and match patterns and prints of clothing. Luckily, with these simple tips you can be sure to look your best, stay fashionable and wear a variety of clothing. 1. Focus On Color Rather Than Prints One mistake that people make is focusing too much on the pattern or the print of the clothing. In most cases you can put different prints together, for instance you can mix a floral top with a stripped skirt. The concern is with the color scheme. It is important that you make sure that each pattern stays within it’s own color scheme. So long as the colors match you should be fine putting a variety of different prints together. 2. Don’t Forget About Solids If you are worried that your outfit is a little too busy, try pulling in a solid. If you wear too many solid items the outfit might become a little boring. However, it you throw in one or two items that are solid colors that offset the prints, it can be a great compliment. In addition, having a solid colored piece of clothing can be a great way to pull out certain colors in your outfit. Perhaps, you wear a mustard scarf with a printed jacket. This is a great way to pull out the yellow in the outfit and accentuate the pattern. 3. Keep The Patterns Even It is important that you evenly distribute the mixture of patterns and solids throughout your outfit. For example, don’t wear a printed scarf, printed jacket and printed shirt with solid pants. This might get a little busy on the upper body and make you look disproportional. Instead, try keeping a couple pieces printed on the top with some on the bottom as well. That way it will avoid looking top or bottom heavy. 4. Mix Simple Patterns with Complex Patterns If you are worried about being too busy with your patterns, mix a simple pattern with a complex one. For instance, instead of putting a floral print right next to a checkered print; maybe put a stripe next to a checker, and a floral next to a solid. That way you won’t look too busy. By following these simple tips you can look fashionable and classy, while wearing a variety of great patterns and...

If you are looking to get whiter teeth, you have a wide variety of choices at your fingertips. You may have heard of teeth whitening pens and whitening trays. They both work at whitening teeth.

Even if the tray was not comfortable or a perfect fit, you would wear it anyway because it was supposed to take you to the goal of whiter teeth. Most teeth whitening pens contain peroxide as an active ingredient. Therefore, even though its use is quick and easy, it is still powerful when it comes to taking out stains. It removes stains from food such as red wine, coffee, and berries. It also takes out stains from cigarette smoke. Portability In addition to being easy to apply, teeth whitening pens are portable.

In addition, if you have to take a trip, you could easily pack a teeth whitening pen in the same way that you would your toothbrush. Packing a teeth whitening tray and its corresponding supplies are not as easy. In addition, while wearing the teeth whitening tray, you would have to play the part of a recluse.
