    September 10, 2019 by barbara

    You may have wondered if you have what it takes to become a cosmetologist and f you could be successful in this business venture. Becoming a cosmetologist requires rigorous training as well as serious business smarts. If you are interested in this profession, consider the three traits of a successful cosmetologist to know if this job is a right fit for you.

    Business Savvy

    A large part of being a cosmetologist is fully managing or assisting with managing a business. Even if you are not the business owner, you will likely have to take payments from clients and book appointments. You must have knowledge of business practices and feel comfortable constantly learning more about this side of cosmetology.

    Client Centered

    Above all, you must be willing to listen to your clients’ requests and concerns and give your best effort in achieving the look they desire. Taking charge of someone’s hairstyle is a very important responsibility, and you must be willing to accept constructive criticism in order to better your techniques. Keeping clients happy is perhaps the most important step in becoming a successful cosmetologist.

    Eager To Learn

    You may have a client come in requesting a treatment that you are unfamiliar with. You may learn that there are better products on the market that can help you better please your clients. You must be willing and eager to learn about new advancements and new trends in cosmetology. If you are unwilling to research hair treatments so that you can perform them to the best of your ability, you are showing your clients that you do not value their patronage.

    Cosmetology can be a rewarding career with its own set of challenges along the way. If you are interested in becoming a cosmetologist, consider if you have the traits that are needed to become successful in this field of study.

  2. Adorn Yourself In Black Hills Gold

    September 10, 2019 by barbara

    Sometimes, when it comes to shopping for jewelry, it can be hard to find just the right thing. There are so many options that it can sometimes feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to feel that way. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one that is authentic and elegant, or simply looking to treat yourself, Black Hills gold earrings could be the answer for you.

    What Is Black Hills Gold?

    Black Hills gold is a piece of heirloom jewelry that is often handcrafted. The term “Black Hills gold” does not refer to a type of gold, but rather to a specific style of jewelry that comes from the Black Hills area of South Dakota.

    What Are the Origins of Black Hills Gold?

    Black Hills gold was developed in the Black Hills area of South Dakota in the 1800s. Gold was discovered there around this time, which caused an influx of settlers looking to mine it. Black Hills gold was originally designed by T.S. Butler, who was a local goldsmith. Later on, his grandson F.L. Thorpe started a company manufacturing the jewelry and helped to design many of the elements of Black Hills gold jewelry we are familiar with today.

    What Does Black Hills Gold Look Like?

    Over the years Black Hills gold has come to include more designs than it originally started out with. However, some signature details of a piece of Black Hills gold jewelry include tricolored gold, with the hues pink, green, and yellow being the most common. Some signature designs that you will see often in this kind of jewelry are grapevines, leaves and stems.

    So, whether you’re looking to surprise someone special with a unique gift or are maybe looking to try a new style of jewelry for yourself, Black Hills gold could be the right thing for you.

  6. Affordable Maternity Wedding Dresses For Comfort and Style

    September 5, 2019 by barbara

    Planning a wedding and a baby? Congratulations! There is nothing better than a double celebration.  There is something special about a wedding which includes the youngest member of the family.  One thing that comes to mind is just how to choose a comfortable and stylish maternity wedding dress.

    If you are on a hunt for a maternity wedding dress, there are a few things to consider.

    Belly growth and style

    Obviously, the most important aspect to focus on is the stage of your belly growth on your wedding day. However, there are no particular rules when it comes to maternity wedding dresses. It all boils down to what makes you comfortable!  It goes without saying that a corset is out of the question, as are any other super-restrictive silhouettes, structured bodices, and tight waistlines.  Choose dresses that make easy movement, climate-appropriate fabrics, and room for growth spurts. Look for A-line shapes, empire waists and light fabrics like tulle or chiffon which may skim nicely over your bump.

    This long sleeve chiffon wedding dress is elegant and super flattering.  It is the perfect example of a dress which is simple and versatile, but not boring. It is an ideal dress for fall or winter gown, or even for a chilly spring morning wedding.

    Dress length

    A large bump will create a shortened hemline at the front of the dress.  Therefore choose an extra-long gown if you want a floor-length look.  The same rules apply for cocktail-length dresses too.   Your feet may be swollen during pregnancy so a floor-length dress is the best.

    The shape of this dress is incredibly flattering for baby bumps of all stages and sizes.  It exudes a fairy-tale boho vibe.

    There is something timeless and stylish about this long sleeve V-neck lace dress.

    All the above stunning dresses are from, an expert in wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. Though its maternity wedding dress collection may be small, it is the place to head for fashion-forward designs that are highly affordable.

    Hosting a wedding while pregnant is certainly a unique event.  See a style that catches your eye? Now is the time to grab it.

  7. The Best Wedding Gown Style For Pear Shaped Women

    September 4, 2019 by barbara

    The term “pear-shaped” comes from the shape of an actual pear.  The top portion of the fruit is smaller than the bottom portion and when it is describing the human body, pear-shaped women’s upper body is usually quite petite and they have larger hips, thighs and bottoms.   A bride with pear shape body may have different sizes which means that their bust, hips and possibly even waist, are all different sizes.  At times, this makes it difficult to find clothing that fits well in all the right places.  Purchasing jeans are the best example because you have to purchase jeans that fit the largest area, your bottom half, but this leaves you with a gap at your waist. If this is what you have been encountering, congratulations, you have the perfect pear-shaped body.

    Majority of women had always envisioned what their dream wedding dress would look like, for example, a fairy-tale-like princess wedding dress or a sexy mermaid bridal gown for the modern brides. But, have you thought about how these dresses could fit your body shape? When shopping for a gown, there are a couple of things that a Pear Shaped Bride might want to keep in mind.  Choose a gown with details around the neckline or chest.  This will draw attention to your upper body.  Ball gown wedding dresses and empire cuts are also great choices.

    This Lace-up Applique Tulle Ball Gown from Cocosbride is simply breathtaking and gorgeous. This dress flows smoothly down which balances out your proportions. It neatly shows off your waist and skim effortlessly over your hips, the widest part of the body.

    Another tip is to balance your shape, do consider a gown with wider straps, cap sleeves, bolero, or a fuller skirt. This will emphasize your small waist and create an hourglass silhouette.

    An off-the-shoulder neckline in A-line silhouette is flattering to this type of body shape. The neckline broadens your shoulder but as the skirt flares from the waistline, it gives you a proportionate shape. A hugging dress with front slit is a great option too.

    Ready to find your perfect fit?  Hurry and check out the above ball gown wedding dresses from As one of the largest and most affordable bridal retailer, Cocosbride is passionate about their business and their core principals of quality, choice and service.

They are fitted to the waist and gradually become wider toward the bottom, like the shape of an ‘A’. This silhouette naturally highlights the bust while slimming the waist and skimming over hips. Therefore, it makes a lovely option for many ladies, especially ladies with pear bodies. Due to their classic and chic style, A-line dresses can easily be partnered with different necklines, waistlines, and fabrics to showcase your best features.  Not only can it be paired with different types of necklines, but many different fabrics can also be used to construct the skirt.
