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.

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

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

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.

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!

Sea, Sun, and Beachwear…

“A girl should be two things: Classy and fabulous.”

Coco Chanel(1883-1971),

fashion-985556

I could not agree more with Chanel and I believe that every lady should be fabulous even on a beach…

So please, Please, Please… INDULGE IN A PEDICURE AND A LEG AND BIKINI-LINE WAX.

Buy swimwear that fits and flatters and invest in a decent beach-towel – a threadbare rag is a horrible sight. A good floaty cover-up is essential when visiting beach bars, as are some decent flat sandals (tottering about in the sand in high heels is not a good look).

AND No bling unless you’re a model! 

Enjoy this magical summer!

Do I need to style my underwear?

Response: Big YES!!!!!!

There is nothing worse than clothes so tight that you can see all the lines of your underwear topped with the cellulite and spare tyres clearly visible to the world… Just an eyesore… 

Celest 2

This should be fit for purpose and coordinated with the colour of your outfit. So, no black knickers under white trousers or brilliant whit bras advertising themselves under slinky black tops. Nude colours are always a good option.

Too much lace is not good, because it is hard for clothes to fit well over clumps of crispy froth. If white underwear goes grey or blue in the wash, throw them out; those lingerie whiteners never really work. (Note to self: get on the case.)

Thongs? To pick responsibly. They should be subtle, chic, elegant yet invisible!

Celset 3

Tights are very sexy, but they are wonderfully functional and it’s nice to know the more expensive, finer deniers are the least likely to snag and run. A lady with foresight will keep a spare pair of tights in her bag.
