HAIR BRAIDS FOR SPRING & SUMMER WEDDING



HAIR BRAIDS- THE WEDDING COLLECTION 2018

I've been in love with hair-braiding since spending a whole summer learning the "art" many, many years ago.  Hair braids can be sexy and sophisticated as well as conservative or romantic but they look especially sweet at weddings and for spring and summer brides.

After researching the latest PINS on Pinterest---I've pinned and posted the following braid styles (along with a source code for instruction by my fellow braiding Pinsters) to help you achieve the perfect, romantic style for your 2018 nuptials.

2018 Body Conscious Swimsuits

Body Conscious Swimsuits 2018

Flattering Summer Swimsuits

With summer on its way, we've been thinking about swimsuits and beachwear that compliment and flatter most body types.  If you're going to have a great time while wearing a swimsuit, we feel it's ultra necessary to have the perfect style---a swimsuit or beach cover that not only makes you feel beautiful ---but one that is also comfortable, flattering and forgiving ---without all the decorative bells and whistles---and these are our picks for 2018.

THE TANKINI

This type of suit is ultra flattering for most body types and an extremely comfortable swimsuit design that gives you the feel of a two-piece bikini without having to worry about "not" having six pack abs for the beach or poolside.

THE MODERN "MODEST" BIKINI

This is our favorite bikini style because it's classic and vintage and it gives you that extra coverage and body support that you're looking for in a bikini.  High waisted swim briefs and reinforced tops look especially fabulous on women over a certain age and really curvy women.  You don't have to worry about how you look ----and you don't have to worry about it falling off and revealing more than you want to show off.

Best To Age Naturally?

Why It's Best To Age Naturally...

Say No to the Knife!

I was watching a new movie on Netflix last weekend ---One that had some of the most beautiful women of the 80's and 90's in the main cast ... most of whom I didn't even recognize...

I grew up fascinated and in love with lead actresses like Mira Sorvino, Meg Ryan, Courteney Cox, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Diane Lane, etc...all of whom are either approaching 50 years of age or a little older...

Imagine my grief and shock when I had to double check the credits to make sure that "Courteney Cox"---was actually "Courteney Cox"...I couldn't believe my own eyes...


Granted, she's not 29 or even 39 anymore but THIS?  She's basically unrecognizable to someone who, in the past, could pick her out of a crowd of a thousand brunettes with similar features...At 54 years old....the old Courteney is lost forever...

I've loved Meg Ryan since her soap opera days and I've seen every movie she's ever done a hundred times...Imagine my sadness when photos like the ones below began to surface...


You've got to be kidding me. Why would someone so beautiful, no matter what her age, opt to go under the knife, for these kind of results?  Even with natural wrinkles and slightly saggy skin...Meg Ryan is still Meg Ryan...After viewing these new photographs (post plastic surgery) I'm not sure who she is (physically) anymore...Meg Ryan is only 55 years old...



Jennifer Aniston is 48 years old and will turn 49 in February....She's not too far behind Courteney and Meg...but for some reason, she continues to look amazing....



Mira Sorvino will be 50 this September but she still looks like Mira Sorvino to me...
