You could be happily ticking along in life and not know that the man you love is planning your engagement. It’s such an exciting time for him, as he’s planning to ask you to spend every minute of the rest of your life as his wife, and that alone is a huge decision to make. Alongside that one, though, is the pressure on him to choose the perfect proposal and the perfect ring to go with it!

There’s a great divide between women: those who want him to choose the ring and those who want to be there during the ring choice. If he understands what you want before he goes shopping, there’s a greater chance you will fall in love with the ring. However, the engagement shouldn’t just be about the ring – we all know that – but somehow having a beautiful Tacori ring that he has chosen, knowing the things you love the most can make you love him all the more! So, how can you help him to choose the ‘right’ ring for you, without actually having him ask you?

  1. Style. There are literally hundreds of different styles of engagement ring out there and engagement rings are made up of two parts: the setting of the ring and the diamond. The setting refers to the design, and you can read more in depth about the differing ring designs here. You can tell him about the style of the ring you would love if and when the big day comes, but if not, he will need to do some research as to what he prefers. Jewelry stores are often fantastic when it comes to helping with cuts and styles so he will have great advice.
  2. Cut. Diamonds, should he choose them, are cut in so many different ways. This chart here can tell you the different varieties of diamond cut. However, if you’re not the traditional type, you may have other stones or styles instead of the standard rock chosen for you. That’s where personality comes into it!
  3. Fit. Most men do the ‘cotton’ trick at nighttime to size up your finger so that they can buy the right sized ring. However, others take a guess and have a receipt ready to resize. It is always better for him to buy too big and size down than too small, remind him of that!
  4. Budget. Okay, so we’re aware an engagement is not just about the ring, but the budget is important. It doesn’t matter how much he spends as long as the ring is something beautiful and meaningful for you.
  5. Metal. Rings are also about the metals – some women are allergic to certain types and this is something he definitely has to be aware of before he buys you a ring!

Next, comes the proposal and that takes some planning on his part so you won’t be able to influence that too much. When you get that question and he’s on one knee, take a mental snapshot as it’s something you’ll want to remember forever.

The reality of life is that no two people are the same, and some women are blessed with better genetics than others. However, natural beauty is somewhat of a myth. Or, at the very least, even the most gifted women have to work on their looks.

Unfortunately, there’s no magic recipe to make you look like Jennifer Aniston. Still, following the right formula will maximize appearances to provide the natural glow that you deserve.

Here are the tricks utilized by women who boasts that seemingly natural glow. Embrace them today, and you should see noticeable impacts in no time.

Eat & Drink Well

Nutrition is at the heart of everything we do in our lives, not least when it comes to our appearances. As well as heavily influencing our body size and shape, it can have a crucial impact on various aspects of our natural beauty.

Staying hydrated is a responsibility that nobody can afford to overlook, and you should look for at least two litres per day. Meanwhile, eating healthy foods that are rich in vitamins and nutrients can aid the appearance and health of skin, teeth, and nails.

There’s nothing wrong with eating the occasional pizza or going out for a night on the town. Generally speaking, though, sticking to a balanced diet is vital.

Exercise Regularly

Like healthy eating, getting regular exercise is something that none of us can afford to ignore. It’s a crucial component of living a healthy lifestyle and plays an integral role to aiding your looks.

A mixture of cardio and strength training will reduce fat and tone muscles. Whether you have a thin and athletic body type or a curvier shape doesn’t matter. Taking control of your body by keeping it fit and healthy will make every outfit you wear look twice as good.

Regular exercise also helps to clear pores and leaves you with the energy levels needed for that confident and natural glow.

Employ Good Skincare Tips

When a woman looks her best, the fact that she has visibly clear skin is normally one of the main reasons. While some girls are luckier than others when it comes to tones and wrinkles, protecting it is a necessity for everyone.

Hydrated skin always looks healthier. Meanwhile, using a pure hyaluronic acid serum can prevent fine lines from surfacing. Those treatments will keep skin looking fantastic for the long-term as well as the immediate future. This is why they play a central role for those women with that natural glow.

Meanwhile, women with great skin tend to wash morning and night to fight off dead cells and damaged particles.

Reduce Stress

Stress is the main cause of many image-related problems. In today’s world, it’s almost impossible to remove it completely. Nonetheless, making a conscious effort to minimize it can have a telling impact on your looks.

Getting a good night’s sleep is the most important factor. Meanwhile, building a bathroom that allows you to shut off from the world can make a telling difference too. Soothing music and a few scented candles will set the perfect atmosphere.

Vacations are another perfect opportunity, not least because it’s a chance to soak up some sun. If budgets don’t allow for this, however, you can still enjoy staycations and short breaks. It’ll improve your quality of life and appearances in one fell swoop.

Get Hair Regularly Styled

Many women fall into the trap of seeing hairstyles as an afterthought. In truth, though, it’s one of the most important factors of your entire look. It can shape your entire face, which is why finding the right style and color is essential.

However, there’s also an equal need to maintain the hair on a daily basis. Finding the right hair care products is a crucial factor in any woman’s beauty rituals. When the hair has a healthy glow, it extends to the whole face and beyond.

Extensions and other options are available. Either way, great looking hair goes a long way to achieving that goal.

Wear The Right Clothes

Possessing a beautiful natural canvas makes it a lot easier to look and feel your best. Having said that, the importance of outfit choices should not be underestimated for a second.

Finding your style isn’t easy, but it’s important to remember that your current choices might not be the best. Most crucially, though, you need to consider the sizes. Beauty has no size but wearing ill-fitting outfits will instantly reduce your attraction. In turn, it will harm natural features too.

Clothing should enhance natural beauty rather than detract from it. Any woman that has successfully mastered this task will look her best day after day. Whether you boast the same charm as your favorite celebrity or not, this is all any woman could ever ask for.

In magazines, online, and even in everyday life, you’re probably going to see people talking about what clothes you should or shouldn’t wear based on your body size or shape. They’ll say that crop tops are only for skinny girls or that shorts are only for people with curves. Well, here’s the dirty secret that a lot of people don’t want you to know: you can wear whatever you want. It doesn’t matter what size or shape you are, anyone can rock whatever look they choose. Sure, the media will try and tell you that there’s one look that’s true beauty and we should all be aiming for it, but the reality is that everyone can be beautiful, it’s just a matter of embracing who you are. With that in mind, here are a few tips to build up the body confidence that you need to embrace any look that you want.

Wear what you want!

The first thing you need to do is to throw out the idea that there are specific clothes or accessories for specific people. A lot of people will turn up their noses at curvy girls who want to show off their tummies, but there’s no reason why crop tops and belly button piercings can only look good on skinny people. Check out this Article about belly button piercing by Catchyscoop.com to see how well anyone can rock that kind of look. Here’s a good thing to remember: if you like a piece of clothing and it comes in your size, then there is absolutely no reason why shouldn’t wear it with pride.

Find your own style!

Of course, that doesn’t mean that you should wear every style and item of clothing possible. After all, everyone has their own style, and it’s about finding the things that you think look good. Of course, the only way you’re going to find your own personal style is to try things on. Experiment with things that you wear. Sure, not everything is going to work but it’s always worth trying things out, that’s what fitting rooms are for after all!

Strut your stuff!

No matter what you wear, there really is only one thing that you need to look good in it: confidence. The most beautiful woman in the world could look bad in clothes if she doesn’t feel confident and happy in them. Be proud of who you are and the way that you look. Strut your stuff and don’t ever let anyone tell you how to look, how to dress, or what you should look like. Remember, beauty has no size or shape!

It’s important to remember that building up your confidence takes time. There’s nothing wrong with feeling like you’re not ready to strut your stuff or wear your favorite outfit in public. If you’re only able to wear what you want in front of your bedroom mirror, then that’s okay! The journey of building confidence always starts with a single step in the right direction!

Your wedding day is one the most memorable, exciting and expensive days of your life. You only plan on doing it once, so you need to get it right. You want to be able to look back on your wedding photos and smile, not be reminded of how your makeup artist didn’t show up or how your hair was ruined by your hairdresser.

Backless Lace Dress

Book with someone familiar

This goes for your hair, makeup, and nails. If you’re happy with the way they do it normally, then why should you go to someone different for your wedding?

Make sure you visit them in plenty of time so you can practice your hair and makeup. There will be a few styles that you can try out, and then you can pick your favorite. Also, this will give your stylist plenty of time to book themselves out for your wedding day.

When it comes to your hair, think about whether you’re going to keep your regular length, or go for something much different. Plan out the color you’re going to go with, and the style you’d like to have it. Remember, your hair will be like this all day so you must make sure you’re comfortable.

It’s no secret that everyone has an insecurity about themselves. You want to be able to love looking back on your big day, and not cringe at every photo you appear in because you don’t like the way you look. Why not do some photo preparation to make sure you’re looking the best you’ve ever looked? If you’re unhappy with your skin, change your diet and cut out junk food, you will notice the difference! The same goes with your weight. If you’re insecure about your weight you could try and lose a few pounds before your big day. You will feel fabulous!

Dresses, suits, and color schemes

You’ve probably got an idea on what kind of dress you would like, and also a color scheme in mind too. Try to match your attire to the scheme of your wedding. This is something you could also think about with your hair and makeup too. If you’ve got purple as your main color, think about going for a purple eye shadow with your makeup and purple nails. It will all tie in beautifully.

If you’ve got no idea on what kind of dress you would like, then have a look around online before you go out dress shopping. There are thousands of websites that can give you inspiration. If you’ve got an eye for drawing, why not sketch out what you’d love to have. You can then take all of this with you and speak to the shop owner to see if they have anything similar. They may even recommend certain dresses depending on your body shape.

When it comes to picking out suits, you need to think about what kind of suit you like. There’s quite a few styles to choose from. Also, do you plan on buying the suit or renting? The same goes for dresses. If you’re buying, would it be something that could be used again? You may want to think about matching ties and cravats, not just for the groom but for the groomsmen too.

Also, make sure you go for regular fittings, wedding planning tends to make you lose a few pounds!

Do your research

When it comes to booking your photographer, make sure you do a little background research on their service (and of course, photos). Don’t just look at their portfolio and make your decision based on that. I was lucky enough to find Darrell McDavid through a local bride I trust.

First and foremost, look at their website. Does it look professional? Red bank photography are a prime example of what professionalism looks like. All of their information is laid out clearly, and they have stunning photos to show off on every page.

Another bit of research you should do, is how they treat their clients. Read reviews on their service and meet with the photographer. You’ll soon know if that’s the person you want to document your wedding day for you.

Visit your venue and check out the scenery. Decide where you would like your photos to be taken. Wedding venues are very pretty in general, but if you’re not keen on the surroundings, inform your photographer that you’d like to go elsewhere for your photos.

There’s a lot to think about, even just for your wedding photos! Being organized is the key.

One final thing, enjoy your special day. You’ve no doubt spent months planning and stressing out, so you deserve to enjoy one of the best days of your life.

In terms of everyday annoyances, is there anything worse than a bad hair day? We all suffer them from time to time, and they seem to come at the worst times imaginable – such as when we have a formal job interview or a hot date lined up for the evening. However, seeing as most of us know we can’t stop them, it can be worth knowing how to deal with them quickly and efficiently instead. It can be really easy to stress out about your bad hair day and become frustrated – but in doing so, you can often just make the situation worse. Here are a few hints and tips so you can avert an impending hair disaster and feel ready for the day.

Don’t overuse products

When your hair is simply not behaving as you want it to, the temptation to reach for multiple products can be overwhelming. Hair products such as mousses and sprays exist so that we can manipulate our hair into doing things that are not natural to it. But, like with any synthetic material, you have to be careful about how you use such products. Many of them can be extremely damaging to our hair, and laying them on heavily can often just make our hair look worse. Matted hair and a flaky scalp are just two of the common side effects we can face from overusing products, which obviously don’t look good! Even though you may think that more product = more control over your hair, you may just end up with heavy, slightly damp locks that are even harder to manipulate. Wean yourself off your product dependency by using a little less each time, and be mindful of the amount that you put on your hair.

Fake it

Sometimes, when we are having a bad hair day, we simply don’t have time to spend ages sorting it out. For these instances, wigs and hairpieces can be a lifesaver. Many people still consider wigs part of ‘costume makeup’ or something reserved solely for Halloween. But just look at all the celebrities we now see these days sporting wigs on the red carpet. Websites such as PureWigs.com/ladies-wigs/ offer a range of styles, whether you fancy a pixie crop or something long and flowing. Simply gather your own hair into the cap provided, attach the hairpiece to your head and you have a beautiful, effortless look in a matter of seconds.

Learn some easy styles

It can be very useful to have a backlog of failsafe hairstyles that you know can rescue you from any bad hair day. You don’t need to be a hair master to pull any of these off, and most will only take a few minutes at best. The classic high ponytail can work well for people with mid-length to long hair, and for anyone with a shorter crop, why not try braiding the front section so that it’s out of your face?
