Top 5 Cosmetic Skin Treatments

Cosmetic skin treatments have become very popular in the past decade due to their successful and amazing results. Whether you want to look younger, have pimple-free skin or need a little glow to your face, there’s a myriad of cosmetic treatments available. From Botox injections and chemical peels, to treatments that use ultrasonic waves to treat the problems, cosmetic skin treatments will give you the skin you’ve always dreamed about.

Chemical Peel

By using a chemical solution, the damaged outer layers of the skin are removed, so that the new smoother skin can resurface faster. The result is glowing skin, free of age spots, acne scars, and wrinkles. Depending on the condition of your skin, you can choose from mild to deep peels to treat the problematic area. While mild and medium peels reduce fine lines and acne, deep chemical peels use phenol and treat more severe problems as wrinkles and deep scars, and the results last up to 10 years.

Electric Facials

One of the newest treatments that are becoming popular rapidly are electrical facial treatments. Aestheticians use different types of current to remove dark circles, kill acne-causing bacteria, make the skin more radiant and enhance lymphatic drainage. It takes three days for the energy caused by the nanocurrent to build in the skin, and give the ultimate result. Three days after the treatment, the skin is looking radiant, acne free, and younger. The fact that electrical facial treatment produces such quick and fascinating results is the reason why many Hollywood stars choose precisely this treatment before they head out to the red carpet.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing treats scars, age spots, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles with the use of short pulsating beams of light. The treatment heats up deeper layers of the skin, and removes the outer layer. The skin is firm and smooth, due to collagen production onset by the treatment. Patients who wish to get rid of deep wrinkles and scars will be treated with an ablative laser, which produces faster results. A non-ablative laser is great at treating early signs of aging, and unlike ablative laser, it reduces discomfort and recovery time.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is almost as popular as tattooing itself. Since many people decide to get a tattoo on the spur of the moment, they regret doing it eventually, which leads to laser tattoo removal. However, sometimes the tattoo is not done correctly, or it’s misspelled, and the person just wants to remove it from their body. The laser used for tattoo removal employs ultra-short pulses of high-energy heat. The Pico Way laser, works three time faster than the Q-switch laser, and doesn’t require as much treatments as the latter to remove the entire tattoo.

Photodynamic Therapy

One of the most effective new treatments for reducing acne lesions on the skin is photodynamic therapy. Bacteria that cause acne breakouts are successfully killed with the specific light wavelengths. First, a patient will get a light microdermabrasion followed by an aminolevulinic acid solution that enhances the laser effectiveness once it’s applied to the skin. Finally, the wavelengths kill the bacteria that causes acne after they penetrate the skin.

Thanks to chemical peels, electric facials, laser skin resurfacing, laser tattoo removal and photodynamic therapy we can quickly have the glowing skin free of wrinkles, acne, age spots, tattoos and freckles.  However, keep in mind that every person must consult with a dermatologist before opting for any of these treatments, since everyone’s skin and body is unique and will react in a different way to these treatments. Therefore, talk to a professional before deciding on this step.

Stunning Ways To Redecorate Your Bedroom

There are a zillion ways to redecorate your bedroom all you need is a little creativity! Just let out your inner artist and go at it! Your room should speak about your personality and character. It must show your likes and dislikes.

So choose and redecorate according to that. When redecorating there are a lot of stuff that you need to keep in your mind like budget, wallpapers, flooring, furniture and what not! It can be one hectic duty.

[AdSense-A]

At times you even have to hire professional help like interior designers and architectures. This article is basically targeting those audiences which can’t afford to hire such help or those who just want to do everything on their own! Bellow you will find everything there is to know about redecorating your own room.

Wallpaper or Paint?

This is a very huge decision. You want wallpaper or paint in your room? If you go for paint then you have to choose between variety of colors, combinations and at times even patterns. For all artistic and painters peeps out there you can do so much with a wall!

wallpaper

Give your room a different yet elegant look with paints, sprays, crayons and anything you want or like. However if you go for wallpapers you have a lot of options!

Wallpapers can be trendy, floral or classic or scenery styles and even plain wallpaper can arouse spectacles. Wallpaper basically gives your room a finesse finish.  For all nerdy comic book fans out there you can also create your own wallpaper which focuses on super heroes and other such characters.

Light up the place:

Lights are very vital when redecorating the place. You don’t want your pictures and selfies to look bad, do you? The only way to avoid that catastrophe is to use better lights. I would say yellow lights are the perfect solution to this. You can always hang some chandeliers around the room or house.

light-up-the-place

Even lamps can be a very nice yet subtle touch. Hanging fairy lights is also another good idea. So you see there are many things that a person can do all you need to do is use that mind of yours!

Carpets and Rugs:

For people who adore rugs and carpets, you can buy some new types of rugs and carpets, whatever comes in your budget! You need to let go of the same old sloppy carpets and rugs. Do something diverse and different.  For starters don’t waste your old bedroom rug or carpet. Just give them a nice wash and use them to cover up the entire wall or a section of the wall. All depends on you! For your redecoration buy a new rug and ask a carpenter to give it any unique cut and then place it on your room.

The Right Flooring

Selecting the right flooring can be a very tough decision, especially with so many options; tiles, marbles, chips, wooden or carpets.

 If you have already selected your room’s furniture and décor then choose the flooring according to that but I would recommend that you select the flooring first and then choose your furniture according to that. This is a better approach. For more home decor suggestions, visit mybedcomforter.com.

5 Tricks for a Brighter Smile

In the long term, brushing and flossing regularly is the best thing you could do for your smile. When this goes wrong, there is always teeth bleaching. But, it isn’t for everyone. It’s expensive, it can hurt your teeth, especially if they’re already sensitive and you probably have to do it more than once. Luckily, there is a less expensive and less invasive way to make your teeth look whiter. Choosing the right makeup can have the same effect.

[AdSense-A]

Here’s how to do it:

Complexion prep

Having an even complexion will allow you to focus on your best features. Start with cleaning and moisturizing and then apply some light foundation and concealer. Choosing the right bronzer is the key when it comes to brightening. If your bronzer is too dark it will bring attention to all the imperfections of your smile, on the other hand, taupe-toned ones will have the opposite effect and make your teeth brighter. Mate foundation under your cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose will contour the shape of your face and enhance your smile greatly.

image-2

Focus on the eyes

You might not have seen this coming – but focusing on your eyes can help a lot with your pearly whites. Use cool-toned colors to counter-balance the yellow tones. Silver blue and purple eyeshadows will work best during the winter and green, turquoise and other brighter tones should wait for spring. Also, remember to choose the right jewelry to go with your eyeshadow. It should be matched with red (garnet or ruby), purple (amethyst or sapphire) and blue (topaz or aquamarine) gemstones.  White metals, like silver and white gold, are also an option. Basically, if you choose a cool-toned makeup, you’ll need to wear something sparkly for balance.

image-3

Lipstick

Choosing the right shade of lipstick is definitely the best way to make your teeth appear brighter. It isn’t going to replace visiting an orthodontist, but it’s the next best thing. Pick blue based formulas instead of orange or red ones. The alternative is to go with berry hue, which comes in a lot of shade and that’s always a good thing. It’s a matter of color wheel rules: blue and orange cancel each other out –and canceling orange is your goal if you’re not satisfied with your teeth.

image-4

Lip liner

The color isn’t everything. Highlighting your lips to make them appear fuller will also give you a brighter smile. Apply lip liner around your lips as well as a little light concealer. The goal is to accentuate the shape of your mouth. This will be exceptionally visible if you’re also wearing a darker shade of lipstick. You can also go in a completely opposite direction and pick a neutral or nude lipstick. If you do this, remember to that texture is as important as the color – matte formulas can make your lips look dry.

Lip liner

Gloss

The rules about lipstick apply to your gloss as well – it’s important to keep the tones light and cold and to try to cancel out the yellows with the blues. This means you should stop using any glosses with gold or bronze glitter and focus on those with a silver shimmer. Obviously, don’t forget to moisturize regularly – none of this matters if you look tired and worn out.

Confidence is largely based on your ability to feel good in your own body, so don’t be afraid of smiling more radiating positive energy. If you follow these pieces of advice, there will be nothing left to stop you.

EXPLORING THE TREND – DENIM JACKETS

INTRODUCTION

Denim jackets have been growing in popularity over the last several years, and are one of the hottest trends this year. Though they used to be seen as old-fashioned and fell out of favor in the ‘90s, these durable, beautiful jackets have come back with a vengeance.

[AdSense-A]

These aren’t your mama’s denim jackets – no longer are they large or roomily cut with giant sleeves – they’re thoroughly modern, offered from tons of different manufacturers in different shapes, colors, and styles.

They’re one of the most versatile items that you can add to your wardrobe, and in this article we’ll take a look at some examples of great denim jackets, give some suggestions on what to wear with them, and give you some quick product recommendations if you’re looking to explore further.

OUTFITS

Here we see a trendy, summery outfit that’s based around a light colored denim jacket. White pants and a lightweight, heathered gray top, along with sunglasses, give this outfit a great summery vibe, while the lightweight, light-washed denim jacket is cut in a vintage style, and accessorized by a chunky, casual wristwatch and a large, beige-colored bag.

This outfit is a great example of the versatility of denim jackets. If you swap the lighter white pants for black pants, substitute the t-shirt for a boldly patterned flannel, or toss in a sweater underneath the jacket, this outfit would be as appropriate for an autumn afternoon as it is for an early-spring day.

Above we see a great example of what we just mentioned. Instead of a lighter, summery outfit, a darker colored denim jacket is combined with dark jeans, a long oxford-cloth shirt, sweater, and chunky scarf to create a look that’s perfect for colder weather, and is as comfortable as it is stylish. The ripped jeans, unique animal-print slides, large leather bag, and sunglasses serve to accent this unique outfit, and make it totally cool and unique.

And even in the summer, you don’t have to leave your denim behind. A denim vest is just a denim jacket with the sleeves removed (either by you, or by the manufacturer) and can serve as a great accent piece to summery dresses, such as the heathered-gray cotton number we see above. Combined with the low-key jewelry, watch, and earrings, and the matching purse with shoes, this sort of look is great for any summery function where you wouldn’t normally be able to wear a full denim jacket.

PRODUCT RECOMMENDATIONS

There are tons of different denim jackets out there, in an unimaginable variety of shapes, styles, and colors. For a classic look, Levi’s is always a good choice – they have a great variety of choices and cuts that are sure to please. You can also look at trendier “fast-fashion” stores such as Zara, Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, and Topman. If you’re looking for a more streetwear-style and edgy version of the classic denim jacket, you may want to check out top streetwear brands such as Supreme or Profound Aesthetic.

And of course, there are always your local vintage thrift shops and charity stores – often, denim jackets from years ago will still hold up terrifically today, given their versatility and durability. If you’re on a budget, (or aren’t’ sure if you want one of these jackets) we recommend checking out your local vintage offerings.

To be honest, laptop bags have almost brought a revolutionary change in the way we carry ourselves to office. There have been so many experimentations in designing chic and stylish laptop bags for office women that enhance their overall personality.

cute-laptop-bags-for-girls

Snug Fit

When you look for the bag, make sure it’s snug fit. A snug fit is necessary for a laptop bag especially when you are buying for a girl. If you by mistake choose too loose, the laptop can slide around while carrying. A right fit is mainly essential for hard cases, since the rigidity of the case’s exterior can sometimes lead to cause more impact if the laptop shifts around. Snug fit doesn’t essentially mean that the bag itself has to be small or compact, but it should close fit the device.

Durability

It’s important to know that a laptop is a sensitive device. A sudden harsh impact can lead to harm it. So always choose a high-quality laptop bags that can offer you not just transportation, but protection as well. It should have cushion inside it so can absorb most of the impact if the laptop is jostled, dropped, or bumped during transit. The bag should also at some level offer water resistance.

Space

Space is one of the most essential parts of your laptop bags. The bags must have plenty of space for your items. While choosing, make sure it has many pockets and extra compartments so that it can accommodate all your items such as a laptop charger, tissues, mints,  pens, paper clips, a mouse (you prefer a mouse to the laptop touchpad), a granola bar, a cell phone,  receipts, or other snack, or work-related documents and forms.

Style

The way you come to office carries a great impact on your career. Remember ‘the style is man’. Since you carry your laptop daily, the bags should look official and professional. Consider it an extension of your own professional appearance and presentation. It represents your style to your clients and managers. It’s good to buy a laptop bag made of high-quality leather in black or brown tones.

To conclude, consider the aforesaid points while buying online girls laptop bags.

10 Ways to Have Beautiful Skin This Summer

Wear sunscreen – Beach parties are fun—no questions asked but, they’re no fun if you’re damaging your skin. Get your sunscreen on and do everything you can to shield your skin from the sun — you heard that right, sunglasses, caps or hats and bikini toppers to cover your most parts of your skin but still show your beautiful bikinis underneath of course! For people with sensitive skin, no need to worry as there are lots of guides on how to choose a sunscreen for sensitive skin.

[AdSense-A]

Relieve sun – soaked skin with cold cream and shea butter. Sunburned or not, soothe and calm skin after spending a day under the sun. Just the heat evaporating from the sand and the warm wind blowing are more than enough to stress out your skin, all the more reason to baby your skin with deep moisturization if you soaked under the sun.

beautiful-skin-in-summer

Try self-tanning – Stop damaging your skin under the sun! Nobody in their right mind sunbathes anymore. Get that sun-kissed skin by using self-tanning lotions! Aren’t you happy to know you can have your tan on days before you even hit the beach?

Bathe frequently most especially after sweating hard. Keep heat rash out by keeping your skin cool, clean and dry all the time.

Keep your skin clean and clear from impurities. Get the impurities, including the sand off of your skin. Stop those blemishes and irritations from appearing at all!

Exfoliate – Do this a week before you hit the beach, and never the night before you do! Get that clean, fresh look with a quick exfoliation right in your home toilet.

Drink plenty of water – Keep your skin from drying out from within. Drink water as much and as often as you can.

Eat well – Eat water-rich foods including fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, oranges and watermelons to keep your body, including your skin, well-hydrated from within. Stay away from salty foods which may dehydrate your body and even cause you to bloat (bye, bye bikinis!). Load up on antioxidants. Drink up those fresh fruits smoothies and enjoy the flavors of the season with the objective of getting your skin glowing. Get yourself a cup or two of green tea or black tea.

Exercise – Nothing else can give you a naturally glowing and radiant skin than exercise. You don’t need to be scheduled to hit the beach in a few weeks to go running a mile! Do this every day, and you’ll be sure to rock your bikini body even when it’s not summer.

Try to get sufficient sleep – Beach equals party — we know but, your skin does not understand that. Try to get as much sleep as you can even while on vacation or, don’t be surprised to see a zit on your second day of stay.

Conclusion

There may be no more untold secret to obtaining great looking skin but, there are ways to intensify your skincare regimen to get pretty to the nth degree this vacation season.

Little Kid, Big Style: Micro Fashion Trends

Chances are that when you flip through your childhood photos, you’ll see yourself wearing your brother’s clothes or whatever was comfortable enough so you can freely climb that tree house or lie down in the dirt while playing hide and seek. But times have changed. Today there is a whole branch of fashion industry committed to bring the biggest trends to the smallest wearers. Yes, we’re talking about microfashion. Dressing kids like mini-adults is definitely gaining momentum: here are the best trends to keep an eye on.

[AdSense-A]

Eye-catching prints

From polka dots, stripes and geometrical shapes to flower and animal prints, and checkered patterns – prints continue to dominate the scene in microfashion. These are easy to combine with monochromatic pieces. For instance, boys can combine long sleeve shirts with a nice print, with simple black trousers. Add a casually tied scarf and a nice pair of sneakers and your little rascal will look very stylish. The key trend in kids fashion is combining utility, comfort, and aesthetic. You cannot expect kids to willingly wear something that doesn’t allow them to move freely but the look is also important.

Age-appropriate accessories

In addition to the mentioned scarves that are both functional and look pretty, kids fashion is filled with different kinds of accessories. From bow ties and wrist watches to jewelry and crossbody purses – there are beautiful details that can bring the outfit from a boring one to the one that will make you say “cuteness overload”! There are two fashion directions when it comes to accessories for kids: either they are literally smaller versions of the adult ones or they are adapted to the kids’ world. Many brands are focused on coming up with innovative designs that the little ones will enjoy. Check out www.patpat.com and you’ll see that there are plush messenger bags for little girls shaped like baby elephants or backpacks in the form of smiling frog faces. Headbands are also trending as well as nicely detailed hair clips. These give you room to help your princess express herself through her clothes and details.

Mini street style

The great thing about kids’ street style is the fact that it’s low maintenance and most of the little ones love it. Current trends for boys include combination of black and gray: just think comfy black hoody, gray denim-like trousers, white sneakers, and a black leather jacket. As for the girls, a combination of different types of leggings and tunics is trending. If they are not too flashy, even the leather ones can look age-appropriate: combine them with an oversized sweater and ankle boots and your girl will end up looking fashionable while staying warm.

kids-fashion-3

The rise of the tutu skirt

With ballet becoming more and more popular as an extracurricular activity for girls, the tutu skirt has been incorporated in everyday looks. From soft pink, turquoise, and plum color to tender beige and bold black – you can find them in any color. They are usually combined with leggings and a simple t-shirt, while the choice of footwear most frequently comes to cute flats. Girls usually love long strands of pearls so this kind of details can be seen incorporated into the look. To complete this look, hair is usually styled into a ballet bun or a sleek chignon.

kids-fashion-4

Retro and playful

Current trends include going back to the 60s and 70s and taking the best of that day’s fashion. A dash of vintage can be achieved through baby-doll dresses and jackets with square shoulders, cashmere sweaters worn over white shirts with collars, vests, and fabric choices (e.g. checkered tweed). Accessories play an important part too: add a pair of vintage sunglasses or luxurious looking gloves for formal occasions – and your little girl will look classy and stylish.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to trends in the microfashion. The market is definitely growing and we have to reconcile with the fact that some of the 21st-century toddlers are better dressed than we are.

How to Pick Out the Right Lingerie

Do you have problems with picking out the right lingerie? Somehow nothing seems to fit, and no matter how seductive and pretty the pieces are, they are never as comfortable as you hoped they would be. If these sound familiar, do not despair. Picking out the right lingerie is a form of art, and it takes a lot of patience and practice to become an expert. Here are a few useful tips which will help you in your search for the right pieces.

[AdSense-A]

Know your body type

Before you set off to buy yourself some new lingerie, you should first determine your body shape and type. If your shoulders are wider than your hips, your body type is an inverted triangle. If your waistline is not defined, and your hips, shoulders, and bust are around the same size, you have a rectangle body type. If, on the other hand, your hips are wider than your shoulders, you have a pear body type, while hips and shoulders of approximately the same size with a defined waistline mean that you have an hourglass figure.

lingerie

Know what looks good on your body

After you have determined your body type, you should next decide what parts of your body you are most proud of and what you want to show off. Sometimes women are proud of their legs, waist, breasts, or hips, and it is only natural that you want to show these off. If you don’t want to reveal too much but still look sexy, try wearing a long nightgown made of silk and lace that clings on all the right places, or reveals just a hint of your legs or back. As long as you feel sexy and comfortable, you are free to wear whatever you want: a corset and stockings, silk nightgowns, lace panties, or leather bras.

lingerie-2

Explore and experiment

Sometimes, the kind of lingerie you are looking for cannot be found in regular stores, but that does not mean you should despair. Instead of settling for the second best, why wouldn’t you try going into an adult store and see if they have something to your liking. Adult stores are not only for sex toys and condoms, they usually have a variety of sexy lingerie in all sizes, and you can even ask them to order something for you. If you have never before tried wearing something with sequins, give it a go and see how it looks on you and how it feels against your skin. You never know when you’ll fall in love with a new piece unless you try it on.

lingerie-sape

When you wear it

Yes, lingerie is sexy and seductive, but that doesn’t mean that you should buy pieces only to wear them in your bedroom. Sometimes having a sexy bra and panties on while you’re at work will make you feel powerful, and they should fit perfectly so you can function while wearing them. Remember, your clothes will not look good unless you have the right underwear underneath. Don’t wear anything that will show through your clothes or that’s too tight.

lingerie-shape-2

Lingerie is seductive, subtle, powerful, and incredibly sexy. Lace, feathers, silk, and ruffles are not for the meek and shy – they can make any woman feel sensual and desirable. Prepare for the search – it’s highly unlikely that you will find exactly what you’re looking for in the first store you enter. Explore and experiment, try out something new and dare to be different; after all, lingerie is supposed to show off the other, wilder side of your personality.

10 Common Wedding Shoe Shopping Mistakes

There are many things that a bride must pay attention to before her big day, but her choice of wedding shoe can truly make or break the day. If you pick a pair of wedding heels that are uncomfortable, unflattering or downright painful, you’ll be very sorry you did. In this article we’ve compiled 10 common wedding shoe shopping mistakes that brides can fall into the trap of making. If you shop for your shoes pre-armed with this guide, it will be far easier to avoid any prospective problems. Get ready to walk down the aisle with the most wonderful and most comfortable pair of shoes ever!

[AdSense-A]

Choosing Heels That Are Too High for You

Many brides choose wedding shoes where the heels are far higher than anything they are used to. Since your wedding day will be spent largely on your feet (realistically he will carry you no further than the car!) it is a wise idea to go for heels that you are going to be able to cope with comfortably. Besides, if you take the easy option and take a pair of flats for the dance-floor, you could run into some serious problems – remember that your wedding dress has been altered to match the exact length of your satin heels and you could end up sweeping the venue floor with your prize dress…

silver-heels

Not Knowing What You Want

Avoid shopping for wedding shoes if you don’t have the slightest idea of what you’re looking for. Take your time to review shoe designer sites, bridal magazines and even go window shopping to get a grasp of the different styles of wedding shoes available. Will lacy shoes be flattering? Peep-toes? Classic white, or a bold color? Classic or modern? The questions carry on… Answering these questions will most certainly help you to buy the best-suited pair of wedding shoes for your personal style and comfort needs.

Opting for The Wrong Fit

Don’t expect that the slightly tight pair of wedding shoes you’ve bought will fit you perfectly on your wedding day or that the slightly wide pair you’ve bought will not fall off your foot as you climb down the church steps in front of a crowd of family and friends. Take your time try on different wedding shoes and opt for a pair of heels that feels absolutely comfortable. Many shoe designers even suggest having a pedicure done before going wedding shoe shopping so that your feet are pampered and smooth before you start trying different shoes.

Shoes That Are Not Your Style

Perhaps you’ve fallen in love with that pair of adorned stilettos an outlandish embellished heel that you saw in a magazine and you just had to have. Or maybe you simply stumbled upon a bargain pair of modern Victorian wedding shoes and felt it was the sensible option to take. However, you don’t want to be sitting in the car on the way to the church remembering that you hate stilettos, lacy shoes are too vintage for you and modern Victorian shoes are definitely not your style. Try to stick to your fashion principles and you will have no regrets!

Wedding shoes are special and they should reflect you and your wedding style. Choosing them carefully is definitely a wise decision, and should not be taken lightly!

They Are Not the Right Shoes for Your Dress

Check twice that the length of your dress allows you to wear this or that pair of shoes unless you want your dress to drag on the floor. It is definitely worth buying your shoes after you purchase a dress and maybe even taking it with you to try on the shoes. This may seem a bit drastic, but it will give some weight to your final decision and won’t leave you in a panic on the big day.

Buying Cheaper Shoes

We all generally expect to pay a bit more for well-designed, well-made shoes, and there is simply no getting away from the fact that a more expensive shoe will result in a more comfortable wedding day. It is also true that brides usually have to spend quite a lot of money on their wedding dress and their bridesmaids’ dresses and that this can sometimes leave a minimal budget for the wedding shoes.

However, please avoid buying cheaper shoes. They will be much less comfortable, they will hurt your feet and they will definitely ruin your special day!

Avoid Buying Something You Can’t Wear Again

Leading on from what we’ve just mentioned, as buying your wedding shoes is quite an investment, you need to do your best to buy a pair of wedding heels that can be worn again and made the most of. White shoes can be a good purchase as after the wedding you can have them professionally dyed to make them more wearable.

Buying Heels in The Morning

A top tip when shopping for wedding shoes is to do it towards the end of the day when possible. Your feet will naturally swell towards the end of the day, giving you a truer fit for the shoe. Remember that you’ll wear your shoes for an entire day so having a pair of shoes that are ultra-comfy and that can accommodate a slightly swollen end-of-day foot is a must!

Be Open-Minded!

Let the shoe designer show you different alternatives to the wedding shoes you want. Be open to suggested options, as you may end up finding a pair of wedding shoes that is even more beautiful, more stunning, sexier and more comfortable than you could ever imagine!

Buying Them Last Minute

It doesn’t matter how busy you are in the run up to your wedding, you need to make time to make a careful and considered decision regarding shoes. God forbid you end up buying your wedding shoes the day before your wedding or, worse, a couple of hours before! Purchase them well in advance so that you can practice walking in them and break them in to avoid blisters at the alter!
