Accessories… update your outfit

Accessories are always a smart way to update your outfit. The great principle of accessories is simple: they are designed not only to pimp your outfit but also to spend your money. The shoe from last season is no longer in fashion. The heel is just that little bit different, the colour is ‘off’, the round tip should actually be a point.
He is, in short, hopelessly dated.

Beauty Tips: in 3 steps to beautiful hands

That you have to take good care of your skin to keep looking radiant and young, is something we have known for a long time. But do you take care of your hands regularly?

The skin of the back of our hands is very thin and has little fatty tissue, which means that it will show wrinkles more quickly. Our palms then have sufficient fatty tissue, but no sebaceous glands. They therefore feel dry and rough faster. For all these reasons unkempt hands can lead to extremely dry, chapped or itching skin.

The following tips ensure that your hands stay nice and healthy for longer:

Step 1: Cleanse

Use a gentle soap that does not dry out the skin, possibly enriched with Shea Butter or Aloë Vera.

Step 2: Scrub

Use a custom hand scrub and do not rub too hard: do not forget that the skin of your hands is tender and thin. One to twice a week is sufficient.

Step 3: Care and Hydrate

Apply some hand cream on the back of your hands and rub them over each other. To avoid too much cream on your palms so that you get sticky hands, you only turn your hands when the cream is already well absorbed and then smear your palms. Immediately massage some hand cream on your nails.

Tip: Do you have very dry hands? Apply a thick layer of cream before bedtime and put on cotton gloves. In the morning you will wake up with extra soft hands.

Give yourself a hand massage

A hand massage is not only relaxing but also a blessing for your skin

That’s how you handle it…

  1. Shake your hands.
  2. Apply hand cream.
  3. Massage your palm with your thumb. Begin with gentle, circular massage movements on your wrist and work upwards.
  4. Massage each finger separately and go all the way to the top of each finger.
  5. Repeat these operations for the other hand.

A deeper meaning in jewellery… part 3 – form and presentation

Form and presentation: a personal message

Not only the materials used had a symbolic meaning. The shape and the representation of the jewel could also contain a message

In this way we recognize the cross as a symbol for Christianity. The anchor as a symbol of hope and fortitude and the key to access the family property.

Two right hands folded together, as well as certain knots and bows, must be regarded as a symbol for a close bond.

Flora and fauna are also used symbolically.

But the best know is the heart shape, symbol of love and friendship. The heart shape can occur in many ways. Such as a solitaire set gemstone cut into a heart shape, a medallion in the shape of a heart, a pin in heart shape through which an arrow goes,…

Vintage inspired clothing… a unique style

While interest for authentic vintage clothes is growing, it can sometimes be very difficult to find original items from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. If you can find anything original, the size range of what is on offer is frequently limited.
In the last several years, thanks to the popularity of series like Mad Men, more and more people are experimenting with vintage (style) clothes.
