    Release the Animal Inside: Incorporating Patterns and Textures From the Animal Kingdom Into Your Wardrobe

    When it comes to high fashion and the runways, designers have always taken huge inspiration from the animal kingdom. After all, nature has provided us with examples of some of the most amazing and beautiful prints, colours and textures! It’s not surprising that we want to make the most of them. There are different ways to incorporate a little animal magic into your wardrobe, from casual day wear through to elegant evening wear, different looks can be sourced from the African plains to deep Amazonian forests or even humble British wildlife. So, here are a few ways to do this. You will expand your look and draw all sorts of positive attention through this little wardrobe mix-up.

    Be Cruelty-Free in Your Wardrobe

    Remember, to take inspiration from nature you don’t have to take from nature itself. Where possible, opt for cruelty-free options. While animals may have beautiful furs or skins, they should remain exactly that: a fur or skin for the animal. No source of fur can be humanely sourced, and animals are often farmed or captured in inhumane ways to fuel the clothing industry. Nowadays, there are plenty of man-made alternatives available and some designers, such as Stella McCartney, are devoted to completely cruelty-free fashion. So join the revolution! Check labels and opt for cruelty-free fashion wherever you can.



    Leopard Print

    Leopard Print

    Leopard print skyrocketed in popularity during the 1970s, however, took a dip in popularity since then. But it’s back with a bang and is set to become a showstopping trend. This is a fierce look that screams confidence. After all, a faux fur leather coat, leopard print blouse or killer leopard print stilettos will always be a bold look that makes you stand out from the crowd. Leopard print radiates a “don’t-mess-with-me” message that works perfectly for an inner-city woman. To work this look to its best, try to contain your ensemble to one leopard print item per outfit. Multiple prints may clash and be overwhelming.

    Faux Fur

    As fall is settling in and winter is approaching fast, you’re going to look to start stocking up on some cozier essentials that will keep you warm throughout the colder months. These items are likely to be an investment, as thicker and denser fabrics are generally more costly. So, opt for something that will match a whole multitude of outfits while fending off the frost. Faux fur is often the best option for this. Faux fur coats or fur vest outfits will keep you looking on trend without suffering frostbite or shivering while you get to and from work each day. If this is going to be your main winter coat, try to stick with neutral colours, such as black, different shades of brown or (if you’re feeling brave) cream.

    Zebra Print

    Zebra Print

    Some of us take pride in sticking to a monochrome wardrobe. Black and white are brilliant shades and complement almost any skin tone, hair colour and makeup. So it’s not all too surprising that we might want to stick to some of these shades. However, combining them can create a stunning contrast that can make your outfit a little more interesting. The most famous way to do this? Zebra print. Zebra print combines stripes of black and white without making the overall look appear too rigid or formulaic. It adds a little touch of softness to the contrasting shades while still drawing attention to the given item. Consider a zebra print blazer for an air of sophistication or a floaty, zebra print blouse for a relaxed approach to the pattern. If you are feeling a little edgy, zebra print works particularly well on a pair of creeper shoes for a rockabilly vibe.

    Faux Snakeskin

    Faux snakeskin is the perfect print when it comes to bags and shoes. It adds texture to any outfit and will draw much more interest than a standard leather item. Faux snakeskin harks back to the fifties, when people oozed class and sophistication, so it’s a great vintage twist to add to any outfit. If you want a statement piece, why not consider a faux snakeskin belt. There are a variety of colours out there, but why not opt for something not-so-subtle? We often find ourselves wearing darker colours during the winter, as it makes thermodynamic sense: darker clothes retain more heat, keeping us warmer. However, a bright accessory, such as a belt could add a much-needed pop of colour to any outfit. If you fancy something a bit more distinctive, why not try crocodile style materials. These fabrics will be tougher, more durable and have a larger and overall more noticeable and distinguished print. It’s entirely up to you: subtle or bold, take your pick!

    Feathers

    Feathers

    Fake feathers add beautiful texture to any item. They’re soft, yet sturdy and remain their shape. A fake feather shoulder cape or ruff turns any dress from casual to evening gown standard. Options that replicate breeds such as the peacock can have beautiful patterns added, such as the peacock’s famous eye-like print. Others can be iridescent, or have a quality akin to the sheen of light on petrol. Faux feathers are also great mini accessories, topping hats of all kinds or being applied to earrings for a bohemian look.

    Dalmatian Spots

    There’s a reason Cruella deVil wanted those dalmatians so much: these adorable pups have one of the most distinct and admirable patterns to be found on any animal. But unlike Cruella, you don’t have to turn to puppy-napping to incorporate this pattern into your wardrobe. Dalmatian spots are brilliant for accessories such as umbrellas. The black and white pattern will match almost any outfit, meaning that you will be able to weather any storm in fashion at any given time.



    Seasonal Colours prints textures wardrobe

    Seasonal Tones

    Why stop with animals? The changing seasons open our eyes to some astounding colour palettes. Certain colours naturally go together perfectly, so where better to source them than nature itself?

    Spring

    Spring is the season of rejuvenation, as the natural world awakes from her winter slumber. Anything associated with this time is fresh, full of life and new. Consider the different greens of freshly sprouting plants, yellow associated with daffodils, the fluffy white textures of spring lambs and the soft blue of clearing skies.

    Summer

    Summer is the best time to incorporate all things bright and brazen. Flowers are blossoming at their peak, brightly coloured insects are flitting about and the sky is often the deepest shade of azure blue that you could imagine. So keep things lively, full of colour and bold.

    Autumn

    Autumn sees summer come to an end, with leaves turning altering shades of yellow, orange, red and brown as they fall to the ground, preparing the trees for the cold months ahead. Autumnal landscapes incorporate these shades as well as purples and deep greens associated with evergreen trees.

    Winter

    Winter is associated with cooler tones, so keep your colour palette to whites, blues and greens. Think of frost, snow and frozen lakes. These shades will foster a cool, sophisticated look.

     

    Makeup Inspiration

    If you fancy taking things beyond your wardrobe, why not use the animal kingdom as inspiration for your makeup looks? While we probably wouldn’t recommend going all out with face paint for anything other than a fancy-dress occasion, you can use certain colours from majestic and beautiful animals to create a palette that will draw associations with said animal’s traits. Here’s one example to get your imagination going.

    Lioness

    The lioness is a symbol of pure strength. She is fierce, hunting on behalf of her pride and working alongside her female comrades for the survival of the pack. What animal could be a better role model? To achieve a look associated with this magnificent creature, you’re going to want a makeup palette filled with gold, brown and black pressed powders. Start on the inside of your eye with a light shade of gold powder. Then work your way across the rest of the lid, blending darker tones until you reach the far side of the eye. Try to use a gradient ranging from light gold to bold gold to a darker shade such as brown. Now take a thin brush and use a black or dark brown powder along the line of your socket. Blend this into the other shades across your lid. This will create the illusion of wider, bigger eyes. Finish with a slick line of jet black eyeliner and black mascara to emphasize the lashes.

    These are just a few of the ways that the animal kingdom can influence your wardrobe. But don’t stop here. There’s a whole world out there that can give you some of the most inspired ideas and alternative looks. Whether you purchase items with these prints involved or take up the opportunity to alter a few things and incorporate different patterns or textures yourself, get started today! Your wardrobe will look all the better for it in no time. Remember, mother nature most often knows best when it comes to creating things of pure beauty.

    Fashion Gurus Spill The Beans On Accessorizing

    Accessorizing has changed a lot over the last decade or so. We’ve gone from a world in which fashion gurus insisted that accessories had to match an outfit into one where it seems anything goes.

    But is this true? While it’s true that true”matching” accessories are no longer required, it’s not true that accessories can go with anything that you wear. There are still style decisions to be made. Here we’re going to take a look at what some fashion gurus themselves have to say about contemporary accessorizing. Here’s their advice.

    bracelet Carnival Tabanca El Emporio Production
    Never Allow Naked Wrists

    If you want to look your best then – at least according to style expert Bridgette Raes – you need to wear more than one bracelet. She recommends wearing bracelets which come together in a set, but you can also go off-piste and wear any selection of bracelets from your jewelry collection. Mixing and matching bracelet you already own, she says, is just as valid as choosing a set from the store.

    Wear Accessories, Even When The Weather Turns Cold

    Wearing accessories, like jewelry in the summer is easy. The days are long, and the weather is warm, meaning that you can strip off and wear pretty much whatever you like. But what about when the weather’s cold and you’re all wrapped up in a giant jumper? What should you do then?

    Style guru Raes says you can still wear beautiful accessories even when the weather is cold. Her advice is to pair a turtleneck with suede wedges or short boots. She recommends going with earthy hues to contrast with dark or blue winter garments.

    She also suggests that women focus more on accessorizing the head area with jewelry, like earrings and necklaces, since just about everything else is covered up.

    Pick Long Necklaces

    Long necklaces might look great on store jewelry displays, but should you wear them? According to Adam Glassman, a creative director at a big fashion house, the answer is definitely “yes.” Glassman says that long necklaces can make you feel better about yourself, as well as more confident. He says that the added length over the bust helps to elongate the body, making you look slimmer. Long necklaces, he says, also help you look taller by extending the distance between the bust and the neckline. 

    Don’t Let Jewelry Overpower Your Outfit

    You want your jewelry to make a statement. But sometimes, jewelry can make so much of a statement that it overwhelms the rest of your outfit.

    The problem usually comes, according to Kristina Moore of a popular fashion blog, when women buy matching sets of jewelry from the store. Matching sets are ideal for making sure that your outfit comes together, and they make it super easy to build up a jewelry collection that you can just throw on at a moment’s notice. But many matching sets are quite overpowering. Not only do they have busy designs and large stones, but they can also make it appear as if too much is going on with your clothing.

    So what can you do about it? Ideally, if you’re wearing a statement outfit, keep the jewelry to a minimum. You want to wear accessories that complement your outfit, not compete with it. If, however you’re going down the plain Jane route, then you ought to take you accessorizing up a notch. 

    Use Jeans As A Base

    Many of us wear jeans every day but surprisingly; according to the gurus that’s not the problem. Wearing jeans every day is fine: wearing them with the same accessories is a big no-no.

    So what can you do to mix it up a little? Bobby Schuller is an advisor to the website WhoWhatWear. He says that women should try to pair their favorite jeans with interesting accessories, like pointed-toe pumps, or heels with wedges. It’s fine wearing jeans, he says, but just leave your sneakers at home in the closet where they belong

    Avoid Being Too Matching

    In the past, accessorizing was easy. All you had to do as find accessories that matched each other and your outfit, and you were home and dry. But that all began to change when highly matched outfits started being associated with OCD. Now matching outfits are viewed as humorous, rather than something you’d want to wear out in public or at the office.

    According to Courtney Hammond, a fashion expert in Georgia, it’s acceptable to mix and match colors and styles. A leopard print bag, with a block color or nude heels, is perfectly acceptable in her book.

    Responsible And Affordable Clothes Shopping

    We don’t like to think about it too much, but somewhere in the back of our minds, we know we’re causing harm to the world. A cheap, but stylish blouse that makes us feel amazing was likely made by a poor girl in a factory with appalling conditions. As we become more conscious about our purchases; we have the power to change the industry for the better, and force manufacturers to change their working conditions. One way to do this is by giving our money to companies that enforce responsible and safe conditions for their workers and still generate high-quality products. Here are just a few ways you can be a more conscientious shopper, while still looking fabulous when you walk down the street.

    clothes shopping

    Read the labels

    You don’t have to be a full-on vegan to care about the animals that make your clothes. Real leather and suede are made from the skin and hides of animals. Fur is taken from animals raised or trapped specifically for their coats. Even silk is problematic; it’s made from a fiber that is naturally secreted by silkworms, but sometimes the worms are boiled alive to extract extra amounts of silk to meet demand. Fortunately, you don’t have to shop in specialty stores to make sure your clothes are cruelty-free. All you have to do is read the label. The next time you’re shopping for a new blouse, there will be information on the label telling you whether it’s made from 100 percent polyester, or if it contains 35 percent wool.

    Environmentally friendly

    Fashion trends rise and fall every year, and while some older fashions are put out in the bargain bin for you to buy at incredible discounts, some things end up in the bin and eventually contribute to ever-growing tips. Sunglasses, for example, change style from year to year, but the materials aren’t biodegradable, which means they’re going to lie on those rubbish piles for years to come. Fortunately, some conscientious designers have created bamboo sunglasses, which means that they will be made from a sustainable material that requires far fewer resources to grow than wood or synthetic materials like plastic. Bamboo grows faster than other sources and requires very minimal maintenance, so it is the cheapest and most responsible option by far. The only way to get the fashion industry to adjust their policies to incorporate bamboo and other environmentally friendly resources is by giving your money to companies that already have these policies in place.

    shopping bags

    Shoes

    It’s great when you start making your shopping more cruelty-free. There is even a growing market for vegetarian and vegan shoes, so choosing between durable shoes and being cruelty-free might soon be a thing of the past, and all boots will be made for walking.

    Finally, you don’t have to go far to be a responsible clothes shopper. Mango, Zara, H&M, and Topshop are great examples of stores that make cruelty free and ethical clothing, proving that responsible choices are affordable and accessible.

    5 Quick Beauty Fixes To Prevent Monstrous Mishaps

    Picture the scene ladies. You have a hot date / big night out / important interview / first day of your new job and you want to leave the house looking flawless. You pay great and painstaking attention to every facet of your appearance from the tip of every strand of hair right down to the shellac on your toes. You’re dashing around loading your purse with all the essential accouterments, and on your way out you take one last minute glance in the mirror to see…

    Uh oh! Something has slipped through the net. There’s a small but definitely perceptible flaw in your otherwise immaculate appearance. It needs to be corrected before it becomes an embarrassing beauty disaster. Here are the most common beauty mishaps and how to fix them quickly and effortlessly so you won’t be late.

    Creased clothes
    There are few things more frustrating than noticing unsightly creases in your clothes when you’re just about to step out of the door. You don’t have time to steam your clothes or fire up the iron, but fortunately, a faithful friend can be most helpful in your time of need. Simply switch on your hair irons and set them to a medium heat. It’s the perfect way to straighten out those unsightly creases. Good hair irons are an essential tool in any beauty arsenal and you can find various brands ranked at http://besthairflatirons.com/. If you don’t already own a pair, you’ve just been given one more reason to invest!

    Over conditioned hair
    Many of us spend a long time making sure our hair is absolutely perfect, but it’s often not until after we’ve dried and styled our hair that we see the greasy results of over conditioning. Leaving your home with less than perfect hair can damage your confidence so give it a blast of dry shampoo for a shot of instant freshness. It will absorb any excess grease while lending your hair body and texture.

    Forehead sheen
    If things have gotten a bit frantic while you’ve been getting everything ready before you go you may catch yourself with a little bit of perspiration on your forehead, peeking through your foundation. An extra dab of primer is the perfect way to quickly perfect the matte texture of your foundation even on hot and humid days.

    Clumpy Lashes
    Nothing can ruin your look like clumpy lashes. They cheapen the effect of your mascara and make your look seem rushed, definitely not the path to making the right impression. This is why you should carry clear mascara with you at all times. Brush out the excess on your lashes, sliding off any buildup on your lashes and buffing them out from there.   

    And finally that most hated of all…

    The surprise pimple

    That pimple you thought you’d slain before you showered? Surprise! It’s back again, meaner and redder than ever just waiting to announce its presence to the world. Not to worry, you can calm the beast with a dab of natural witch hazel. This natural astringent will alleviate the redness and inflammation so you can go about your day with confidence.

    Now that you’ve quickly averted these last minute beauty crises all that remains is for you to get out there and be fabulous!

    Mainstream Etiquette: Why You Need to Dress Sharply for College

    Most of college students love to dress up and impress other people. However, dressing for class and dressing for a party are two different things that shouldn’t overlap with each other.

    Dressing appropriately for students does not necessarily mean that you need a 3-piece suit in the class. The point here is to dress according to the occasion.
    Dressing up for school was once a ‘di rigueur’ in many college sites as it is a symbol of respecting the power of education, demonstrating respect to your professors, and showing respect to your school.
    But before we go down to the reasons why college students should practice the art of dressing up sharply, let’s tackle first what it means to dress up sharply.
     
    girl in boots

     

    What Is Dressing Up Sharply? 

    1. Dressing Means That You Wear Clean Clothes That Fit

    While not all career requires wearing a suit every day. Young people should wear clothing that is free from stains, rips, and tears, and most of all must fit one’s body physique.
     
    girl in scarves

     

    2.  Dressing Up Means Having Your Personal Style

    After building a rapport with clean and well-fitting clothes, the next thing to do is to develop your style.
    The key to creating your style is understanding your build, skin tone, hair color, environment, and financial capacity. Combine these factors and come up a fitting style that doesn’t compromise.
    You don’t have to follow mainstream trends in fashion. You can conjure your style that shows your personality.
     
    girl lipstick

    3. Dressing Sharp Means Classic

    After conjuring your personal style, your next move would be, gathering ideas from classic trends. Dressing sharply evokes the image of men in the past. It could be the reason why the generation of our grandfathers is classic.
    Classic items of clothing are the things that hold firm over time, and have no flows and ebbs,  transcends time and never lost its relevance in fashion trends.

    4. Dressing Sharp Means To Surpass

    In the greatest sense, dressing up means to stand above the social norms of the day. T-shirts and jeans are common staples in the society, and for the most part, this combo is well-accepted in different cultures.
    However, T-shirts and jeans do not exceed the current social norms that we have. If you want to stand-out from the crowd, choose to dress sharply. Take heed, dressing sharply means surpassing the standards.
    Now, you already know what it’s like to dress sharply, the next phase would be discussing the reasons why it’s essential for college students to dress up sharply at school.
     
    men shoes

     

    Sharp Dressing Conveys Maturity

    Whether you choose to go to school, serve your country, or enter a trade, you are now a young adult.
     
    Your experiences in your pre-adulthood years shaped who you are today. It’s your responsibility to carry yourself forward. And the clothes that you wear are not exceptions.
    Dressing sharply shows maturity and motivation. People will see you as a young person full of life and energy, potentials, and dreams. At the same time, they will also see a young person who is responsible and mature enough to serve herself or himself and rise above teen-hood.

    Sharp Dressing Is a Good Confidence Booster

    A young person who has self-confidence can rise above the challenges of college life. Confidence is imperative in surviving the succeeding college life.
     
    You cannot nail a good class presentation if you’re not confident with yourself. You could not land a good internship if you messed up in the interview due to lack of self-esteem. You cannot ask an attractive woman on a date if you think less of yourself.
    To aid this dilemma, you should try to dress up sharply so that you can boost your self-confidence. Put on the best clothes that you own and face college with confidence.

    Sharp Dressing  Radiates Self-Respect

    If you exert time and effort in dressing up sharp, you will radiate an image of self-worth and self-esteem.
    People will see and think positively of you. Dressing up means you are respecting your body. Moreover, a sharply dressed student will display a healthy sense of worth. When people see you in a clean, fitted, and classic clothing, they will most likely think that you are worthy of their company and time.

    Sharp Dressing  Means You Respect Your School and Professors

    Showing respect to your school and professors is the whole point here. You want to look good and project a confident person because you want to demonstrate that you’re taking college life as a journey worth dressing.
     
    What would your professors feel if you show up in their class wearing an over-sized sweatshirt and ripped jeans, or a dingy sweater and short pants with matching flip flops? Imagine what would be their impressions about you. Most probably, you’re a lazy student who only goes to class whenever you like.
    When you wear appropriate clothing and go to class as a well-dressed student, your professors will acknowledge that you’re a responsible adult ready to take on the challenges that their subjects will throw at you. It will also reflect the image of the school that you’re attending.
    When people see you in your best wardrobe and knows which school you’re attending, they will more likely think that students in your school have a good sense of style and most probably dresses up like you. Indirectly, you are representing the school with your fashion.
     

    Takeaway

    There’s a saying that goes like this, “Clothes Maketh Man,” it means that the way you dress reflects your personality as a person. It holds true for most of us. Women’s and men’s clothing are important social factors. We dress because we like to make good impressions. The same thing goes with dressing sharply too. There’s a reason why you groom yourself and dress well. It goes beyond vanity.

    3 Ways to Get a Bad Smell Out of Clothes

    If your clothes have a bad and unpleasant smell before and after you washed them the way you normally do, do not worry, it can happen to anyone. It is not an unsolvable problem, in fact; there are pretty easy ways to deal with various odors that are trapped in the fabrics. There are different types of smells, consequently; different types of ways to fix the issue in a blink of an eye and return the freshness of your clothes.

    person-looking-searching-clean

    Washing Machine

    If you have forgotten your laundry in the washing machine for way too long, it probably smells like mildew now. Smelly laundry is not something to be afraid of. Simply wash the clothes again and do not forget the clothing at this time. Hang them outside, it would be even better if it is windy outside and wait to see if the bad odor is gone. If it still lingers, however, you will have to wash them again. Third time’s the charm!  But this time use the secret weapon – white vinegar! It can be applied in many cases where you need something to be cleaned. Either mix it with the detergent or simply pour a cup of white vinegar together with your laundry. The mildew can’t stand a chance now.

    Wardrobe

    If your clothes have stayed in the wardrobe for too long, a musty smell might occur. We have a way to deal with that as well. Soak the bad smelling clothes in a solution of cold water and baking soda. The baking soda is a great means of getting rid of a bad smell. Leave them like this for some time, rinse and then dry them as you usually do. The bad odor should be gone. In order to avoid such trouble, clean your wardrobe regularly and make it prone to moist.  

    wooden-laundry-washing-clothes-line

    Baking Soda Solution

    But that’s not all that baking soda does. The baking soda solution also removes sweaty smells. It also can be used in the process of cleaning the house are saying the professionals from Sparkling London. You either soak the clothes in a solution, or you apply a baking soda and water paste to the smelly areas and leave them like that for a while. After washing, the sweaty smell will no longer be there. This is especially practical for gym clothes or sports clothing for any other sports activity.

    If you had a great night out but now your beautiful evening clothes smell like an ashtray from all the smoking in the club or the bar, simply wash them as you normally do. Perhaps the smell is way too strong, soak them in the above-mentioned solution. If it is a jacket, for example, hang it outside, let the wind do the job and you will have a non-smelly jacket in no time. This saves you the washing and the drying, consequently; it saves you time and you can wear your favorite jacket again on the next morning.

    If your clothes smell of gasoline or other oily products, seal them in a bag full of baking soda and let them stay like that for a day or two. Then wash them as you usually do and the oily smell should be gone.

    There is always a way to get rid of the bad smell when it comes to clothes. Hopefully, another washing will do the trick, but that is not always the case. Luckily, we have baking soda and white vinegar that are helpful not only for getting a bad smell out of clothes. They also take part in other various cleaning hacks around the house. With the right “recipe” you can deal with every kind of clothes odor that your favorite clothes encounter.

    Fashion Passion or Successful Career?

    When you have a passion for something, it can easily fill your entire life. But that doesn’t mean you want to be engaged with it all day every day. Of course, if fashion is your passion, then you have no choice – we all wear clothing and apparel all day long. Are you happy to take your work home with you? That kind of drive and determination could be just what you need if you want to turn your fashion passion into a successful career.
     
    Careers in fashion are notoriously hard work because they involve such long hours. And yes, you are literally taking your work home with you every night and all weekend long too. This can be quite off-putting for some. But if your love for textiles, style, color, and fabric is strong, you might already spend every waking moment thinking about it. After all, you’re here visiting this website right now!
     
    If you’re driven and keen, then getting into fashion will be much easier for you. But it might be more about your ability to stay focused and see the next big trend coming that builds your career. When you look at desirable jobs like the ones at http://www.jobsatbelk.com/apparel-designer/it’s clear there is plenty of choice and scope within a role.
     
    It’s important that you’re willing to branch out into lots of different areas. After all, fashion companies change as fast as the style trends themselves. To keep up, you need to be willing and able to slot into the next project and hit the ground running. Even if you’re starting at the beginning in an admin role, or as the janitor, it’s important you’re always styling, designing, and experimenting. Keep documentation of what you come up with.

    Create a Portfolio

    Putting a portfolio or presentation together with all your ideas and designs is important. If you learn nothing else this year, make sure you spend time working out the best ways to present new concepts. You might even be asked to reinvent or restyle more traditional fashion ideas. This level of creativity can be hard to maintain over time, so look at websites like https://www.craftsy.com/blog/2013/09/creating-a-fashion-portfolio/that can help stimulate that creative genius inside you.

    People skills are enormously important in any creative industry. When you have such a strong passion for fashion, you might spend a lot of time browsing magazines and web pages. Practice talking aloud about your thoughts and opinions on what you see. Communication skills are essential because sometimes you simply can’t demonstrate or visually show an idea or concept. Of course, if you have strong drawing or sketching abilities, this can be really helpful too.

    Some say working a job takes the love and passion out of your favorite pastime if they are too closely related. True passion is hungry to spend every waking moment contemplating, creating, and learning more and more about it. There will be times when you need a break, of course. So is your passion for fashion strong enough to build a successful career?

    It’s Time You Paid Yourself the Beauty Attention you Deserve

    As we become adults, we usually begin identifying ourselves in many different ways. Some people are harsh on themselves and begin to ascribe widely different attitudes towards the way they look; therefore, this can have a net decrease in the confidence they have to supply to all activities in their life.

    This is a shame because, for the most part, people who are critical of themselves and their appearance are usually much more beautiful than they give themselves credit for. Find information on all about Indoor Tanning Lotions.

    Everyone knows what it’s like to have a friend who always proclaims that they’re fat, unattractive or not worth maintaining. This might be you. If it is, you should stop this. No matter who you are, you can look beautiful, and the only way to completely be sure of your beauty is to define it for yourself. Even supermodels that look like they’ve arrived straight from the Greek mountain of the gods to bless us; with their symmetrical, aesthetic beauty all have body image issues, and some even conform to harmful methods of weight loss to keep their trim figures.
