Well, Smell You

In my business, Lively En Mode, I touch on every part of a client’s image. And much to one’s surprise, it’s the unseen and unspoken aspects of a business or a person that leaves the most important impression.But does one ever even give a moment’s thought to fragrance. In other words, what we smell like? I certainly don’t need to explain what one’s image would be if they actually stank. But what about smelling right and by right , smelling the way you should for where you are or where you want to be in life. Fragrance that is...

The days are becoming brighter and warmer and you want something to reflect your springtime wardrobe, whilst being prepared for chilly nights and the inevitable downpour.   Consider your usual clothing style and how much money you are prepared to spend.

Do you want a selection of coats or jackets, or do you need one that suits every occasion?   Trends for 2012   This season’s trends are for bright bold colours, particularly orange and blues, as well as soft feminine pastel shades.

Top Ten Best Professional Hairdryers of 2012

Top Ten Best Professional Hairdryers of 2012 It may seem that one hairdryer is as good as the next, but for exceptional salon results it pays to invest in a quality product that not only dries and styles the hair but protects it at the same time. What to consider The heating element is an important consideration as most cheap hairdryers use plastic rather than ceramic inclusion, which can be devastating on the hair. Ceramic heats more evenly and safely and to more appropriate temperatures. On a scientific note many cheap hairdryers also work by diffusing positive ions through metal or plastic elements, which can cause damage. Meanwhile professional options work on an ionic basis, producing negative ions which help the hair cuticle lay flat, thus reducing frizziness. With professional hair dryers designed for constant use they tend to weigh less and be lighter than standard hairdryers. This makes them more comfortable to use and easier to manoeuvre, which in turn reduces strain. When choosing a good-quality hair dryer opt for one with multiple speed settings, including a cool option. This is essential for finishing hair. For greater flexibility and the ability to create varied styles, look for a selection of attachments, including a diffuser. Provided below are some of the best options. • Remington Vortex Ultra This ultra-sleek hairdryer is modern and lightweight, featuring two speeds, three heat...

They want to prove to us mere mortals that they are just like us under all that makeup. But they are not. They have photographers who know a thing or two about making even a rotten tomato look desirable. So don’t try to pull the wool over our eyes. And that is what most of us would need to do if we got our pictures taken without makeup. I even heard...
