Tips for a gorgeously fraganced home

Certain smells are as evocative as a photograph, or even more so.

They take you back to a place or moment in time that you may have forgotten all about. After all, why is it that people trying to sell their houses are always told to bake a cake before potential buyers look round? It’s so that the prospective new owners instantly associate the house with a warm, homey feel they may well have felt in their childhood home, where Mum would often bake a cake to have after tea.

 

 So many aromas work together to make your house feel welcoming. In the kitchen, having a clean work surface paves the way for the fragrances of the tasty food you cook to waft their way throughout the space. Your lounge may be full of the fragrance of flowers, your bedroom the tantalising aroma of crispy clean sheets. Bathrooms can be made into the most enticing of spaces with the help of essential oils and scented bubble baths.

Perhaps you have been too busy rushing around after Christmas to pay much attention to how your house smells at the moment. I don’t mean that you’ve let it get dirty, rather that you haven’t had time to make it feel even lovelier with the addition of gorgeous-smelling things.

Going out – the Rules to dressing up Festive Style

 

Formal wear Paris

Formal wear Paris

Ok ladies, it's that time of year again.

COME ON, admit it, you love to dress up.

Even those of us who bah humbug the whole Christmas/New Year social scene have to admit that we like to get dressed up and look like a million (or more) Euros/Dollars. I live near the beach now and have a beautiful life here that's close to nature and things that I consider simple but essential to my whole existence. However, everyday I have fun getting dressed up, keeping that girly little spark in me going. As soon as I have an excuse (a party, a concert, opera... whatever!) I go ballistic trying to find something I am going to have fun wearing.

So because this is the season of parties and near liver failure, I thought I would put together some rules. For New Year this year I will be going to the Casino, having fun and sitting at the poker and blackjack tables and I am going to be dressing UP for it. Hope you find some interesting facts and please don't hesitate to let me know what you will be wearing this festive season!!! Read on...

My top 3 most underrated fashion buys

Fashion trends come and go, but there are some fashion garments that continue to stand the test of time. Unfortunately some of these items get more love and attention than others! Think about the LBD (Little Black Dress), everyone appreciates this a classic look and that it should be a wardrobe essential; for that reason, whatever the season, you’ll always be able to find one on the high street. If you could do with updating your wardrobe with some fashion staples, here’s a look at three of the most underrated fashion buys and why you should keep your eyes peeled for these the next time you’re browsing:

Women's cardigans

The perfect cardi

Cardigans are a garment no longer reserved for OAPS and are now found all over women’s clothing sections on the high-street. When you’ve worked hard on an outfit, needing to cover up because of the cold can be frustrating; cardigans are a wonderful solution. They can provide a layer of warmth with the option to leave the front open and still reveal the other garments you spent hours picking. With a cardigan you don’t have to cover up that vintage tee, or hideaway your pretty patterned midi dress.

Cardigans

There are many cuts of cardigan available too, making them a versatile choice. Choose from a slim-fit, crop, V-neck, Grandpa cut or chunky knit – the sort of cardi you’ll pick will depend on your body shape and the season. The difficulty when cardi shopping is the limited choice, despite their practical appeal, cardigans are rarely available in interesting patterns or prints, with block colours being the popular design. So, when you do come across a stand-out cardi garment – snap it up fast! It can be worn from season to season.

Tips on finding the best sunglasses for you!!!

Ray Bans  

Some little tips I have gathered on my travels on finding out what makes the best sunnies for you!!!

The Best Shaped Sunglasses for Your Face

When selecting sunglasses, you may wonder how to pick out the best frames. How do face shapes for sunglasses impact the frames you should get? Sunglasses First, determine your face shape. There are seven basic shapes: round, oval, oblong, triangle, inverted triangle, diamond, and square. Once you determine your face shape, pick a frame that contrasts with the shape; for example, if you have a round face, select angular, narrow frames that are wider than they are deep in order to lengthen the face. The frame size of the sunglasses you select should also be in scale to your face. If you have petite features, don't select over-sized frames -- they will dwarf your face. Some examples of good frames for different face shapes are:
  • Diamond-shaped faces: rimless frames, frames with distinctive brow-lines, or oval frames
  • Square faces: softer edged frames; round, oval, even cat-eyed, also thinner frames
  • Triangle shaped face: colorful frames or cat eye sunglasses, also frames with straight top lines
  • Inverted triangle shaped face: rimless frames, light colors and materials
  • Oblong face: frames that are as wide or wider than the broadest part of the face
  • Round faces: rectangular or squarish frames, thicker frames
  • Oval faces: most frames will look good, but especially square and wrap-around Read on...
