Host in style – Fleur de Lys Napkins

If you want to entertain in style and impress your guests, it is important to dress the table perfectly and correctly. Set aside, the forks, glasses and plates, you want to go the extra miles with setting up your table with a cloth for each guest.

A standard table setting would consist of the following for each person:

– table mat
– cutlery for each course
– as side plate and butter knife
– glasses of each wine served plus a glass of water.
– your napkins which will give your table an amazing look especially if you can fold it and present it perfectly.

1 – Fold your square napkin into a triangle and bring the left and right corners towards the top corner.

2 – Fold the resulting diamond in half, from the bottom to top, and then fold towards you, in half again.

3 – Turn the napkin over and once again bring the left and right-hand corners together and tuck in.

4 – Stand the napkin upright and peel down the two side folds.

5 – Finally, peel down the top corner.

Poise is directly concerned with Good Deportment

You can be decked out from head to toe in the most divine ensemble, but if you ain’t got the poise and posture, well Hun, you’re nowhere. Head-up! Shoulders back! Tummy in! Back straight! And here we go, walk elegantly from the hips

Practice makes perfects, and please, if you can not rock with heels, rock without 😉  For help, a natural deportment comes from practice, riding horses, ballet, and pilates are the best way to get it naturally without thinking about it! Enjoy!

Skin Mapping Analysis: the Solution to Understanding your Spots

Skin mapping analysis is recommended if you’re usually not prone to acne, but occasionally have spots on your face. To understand the causes and origins of these spots, we explain everything face-mapping is about to get the beautiful skin you deserve.

Spots on the forehead

forehead-digestive-system.jpg

You have either a hormonal imbalance, or it is your belly that sends you an alarm. To prevent your skin from producing too much sebum, learn to eat well, rebalance your diet and do a detox cure.

Best piece of advice: Drink green tea to eliminate toxins!

Spots on the jawline

chin-hormones

Where is the problem? It’s the hormones!

Generally, these small buttons on the jaw appear in a period of rules.

Best piece of advice: hydrate yourself well and think about cleaning your face morning and evening with adapted products.

Spots on the chin

chin-hormones-2.jpg

Where is the problem? Watch your diet!

If pimples appear on your chin, you have either a hormonal imbalance, or it is your stomach that is sending you an alarm.

To prevent your skin from producing too much sebum, learn to eat well, rebalance your diet and do a detox to cure your impurities. Drink green tea to eliminate toxins of your body!

Spots on the nose

Check your cholesterol levels! Junk food is convenient and too good for some. But it’s not necessarily the best thing to eat when you suffer from acne. To get rid of your imperfections, reduce all foods based on bad fats. Goodbye to pizzas, burgers, and other very sweet sodas.

Best piece of advice: favour good fats: eat avocado, olive oil, salmon, sardines, almonds and lots of dark green vegetables (like broccoli).

Spots on the cheeks

cheeks-respiratory

The first reason that could explain the appearance of spots on your cheeks is the state of your makeup brushes. They can easily be full of bacteria. They should, therefore, be cleaned very regularly (once a week). Same for the pillowcase! Change it every week so your face does not land on a bacteria nest whilst sleeping.

Spots between the eyebrows

Pimple-on-eyebrow-pictures.jpg

Several factors can cause the appearance of spots between the eyebrows. Alcohol first. If your liver is abused by alcoholic beverages, it is imperative to take care of it. Drop the cocktails to detoxify your liver. And remember: alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health.

Another possible reason? Food intolerance. Your body then raises an alert through rashes.

Best piece of advice: get rid of some food and check your skin reaction when you eat novelties.

And finally…

Spots on the temples

Watch out for your kidney!

Again, drink plenty of water and hydrate and forget about coffee. The goal here is to flush toxins out of your body. And of course, you do not have to wait for the spots to appear to drink water. It also works in prevention!

Good luck!

Autumn has defo started!  So, start your new beauty routine now and take care of yourself this winter enjoying the little tips we will be giving you this winter to get the most beautiful side of yourself next summer 2019! Believe me, it’s going to coming around very quickly.

Who are the luxury consumers of today?

guccispringcampaign2018.jpg__1024x450_q85_crop_subject_location-575,170_subsampling-2_upscale

Our world is changing, more and more consumers are able to buy luxury goods as never before. But where the world has more and more millionaires and billionaires, they do not consume the product in the same way, let’s see how different these consumers can be.

The 5 main Types of Luxury Consumers

The Aspirational Celest Lifestyle The Aspirationals: Aspirationals have $85,000 or more in annual income in developed markets or $29,000 in emerging markets and account for four out of every five luxury purchases. They aren’t big spenders individually, but together they account for a third of all luxury spending, says BCG.

lux2.jpgRising Middle Class: This group has incomes of $170,000 or more in the U.S. and $55,000 in emerging markets – which makes them far more affluent than the real “middle class.” They account for 25% of luxury spending.

New Money Households: New Money has investable assets of $1 million or more, and they spend about $90 billion a year on traditional luxury, or about a third of the market. New Money tends to like fashion and clothes.

Affluent-consumer-shopping-Rolls-Royce-465.jpgOld Money Households: The Old Money group inherited its money and is far more frugal, accounting for only 7% of luxury sales, says BCG. There are one million of these households in the markets studied.

Celest Lifestyle Nouveau RicheBeyond-Money Households: This group is self-made but unlike New Money, it eschews status and tasteless spending. There are about a half million of these households. When they do spend, they spend on watches, jewellery, furniture and decorations.

Tipping around the world

Hello fellow fashionistas

Upon my trip in Japan 🇯🇵 recently, a question came into my mind upon dinner. Am I expected to tip or not? In fact, this question came a billion times upon my summer tour around the world. Whilst in Austria, it’s consider rude not to, Japan as another way to deal with it.

In fact, tipping is not customary in Japan. It can be considered rude and insulting in many situations.

Be sure to put the tipping money inside of a decorative envelope and seal it before handing it to the recipient with a slight bow. Pulling money out of your wallet to use as a tip is generally frowned upon in Japan.

You’ve been warned! 😉😮

Enjoy your holiday but don’t forget to…

Consider the local culture of destination

Sure, “Athleisure” may be hip stateside, but in countries like Japan or South Korea, not only is it perceived as sloppy—it’s also offensive. Same goes for wearing flip flops in Arab, Hindu and Buddhist countries, or skimpy clothing in the Middle East and North Africa. To avoid unwittingly causing offense, read up on the country to which you are visiting’s dress code. An oversized scarf of shawl is also a good investment for more culturally conservative countries.

Enjoy your holiday but do not forget to …

Colour coordinate your clothes…

Don’t get us wrong—color is a good thing. But when it comes to packing a suitcase, ease up on those teals, magentas and fluorescent yellows. Unless you have the wardrobe to support it, it’ll be near impossible to throw together a fully-coordinated look on the fly. For easy outfit planning, pack 75 percent neutrals, leaving the remaining 25 percent for colorful pieces within the same family (i.e., pastels with pastels; earth tones with earth tones; jewel-hues with jewel-hues).

Enjoy your summer holidays and don’t forget to…

Check the weather

Your travel wardrobe should be chic, yes, but it should also be practical. And weather-appropriate wear is the touchstone of smart dressing. Headed somewhere rainy? A waterproof jacket, rain boots and layered clothing will be essential.

Or, if you’re desert-bound, load up on breathable, lightweight options for the day and sweaters and pants for (cooler) nights.

To get a sense of what kind of weather conditions await you at your destination, set a forecast alert on your iPhone and monitor the weather patterns in the days preceding your departure.

Have fun!

Hats, fashion, and Sun

pool-690034

Lovely big hats to off formal daywear, and – as long as you can keep them on – they solve all hairstyle dilemmas at the stab of a hatpin. Big hats look good on tall women with slim-fitting suits or dresses.

A big hat, full skirt and baggy to equal a fashion disaster and, if the wind gets up, probably a hazard to surrounding cars and motorbikes.

Social kissing in big hats is something to practice. Imagine two ladies in cartwheels of hats approaching each other for ‘mwah mwah’. It’s best to approach with your head slightly tilted one way or another, so the approaching hat picks up the hint and tilts her head the other way.

The secret of looking ladylike with a hat on is a question of balance. Overwrought hair and hats do not mix well. Look at the outfit as a whole in a full-length mirror. Be mindful of colour coordination and silhouette, and bear in mind hat practicalities: will you have to slip through doors sideways; will people be sitting in the row behind you have to use periscopes to see?

Enjoy this magical summer!
