One of the hallmarks of any festive occasion is the popping of Champagne corks. There is something about this sparkling wine from France that has always been associated with good times and living the high life. For brides and grooms trying to decide how to include Champagne in their own celebration, here is a basic primer.

The first thing that many people do not realize is that true Champagne comes only from the region of France of the same name. Anything else is a sparkling wine, but is not truly Champagne. Champagne was created hundreds of years ago in France, and gets its bubbly nature from a process of second fermentation. It was first enjoyed by royalty, thus the association of Champagne with being luxurious. There is nothing quite like sipping a fine glass of the bubbly, while all decked out in a fabulous bridal gown and crystal bridal jewelry. Between the Champagne and the glamorous crystal bridal jewelry, you are sure to feel like royalty yourself, at least for one day.

There are a number of famous French Champagne houses. Some of the more famous include: Taittinger, Moet et Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, and Perrier-Jouet, to name a few. Of course when choosing a top bottle of Champagne, you can expect to pay top dollar; prices start at around $40 for 750ml and can run into well over $500 a bottle! If you are planning to serve a lot of Champagne at your wedding, look into buying it by the case; you can usually find volume discounts.

Champagne is typically produced using a blend of white Chardonnay grapes and black Pinot Noir grapes (though other varieties, like Pinot Meunier are also used). Rose Champagne has a little bit of red wine added to create its signature pink color. That could be a lovely choice for a pink themed wedding celebration.

Another thing to know about Champagne is how sweet is is. The different types (from driest, or least sweet) are: brut natural, extra brut, brut, extra sec, sec, demi-sec, and doux, the sweetest. The difference depends on how much sugar is added. The earlier Champagnes tended to be quite sweet, but today the most popular is brut. If you are unsure about which to choose, that is a safe bet. Many people find the sweeter Champagnes to be too cloying.

Most Champagnes are non-vintage, meaning that they were made by combining grapes from different years. Vintage Champagne, on the other hand, is created when at least 85% of the grapes used are from the same year. This is done in cases of a particularly fine harvest, and results in a top quality Champagne. Vintage Champagne will be considerably more costly than non-vintage.

The most special Champagnes of all are the prestige cuvée, which are the top of the line creations from each brand. Some of the best known are Dom Perignon by Moet et Chandon and Cristal by Louis Roederer. If money is no object and you truly want to impress your guests, by all means, pop the cork on one of these premier bottles.

For many couples, money does matter, and in that case, there are some other options available besides Champagne. The least expensive is to serve a sparkling wine from California instead. A mid-range option is to serve a good bottle of the Italian sparkling wine, Prosecco. This is a nice option if you want to serve your guests a special treat without spending too much.

The Champagne toast is one of the highlights of any wedding. Make yours extra special by carefully choosing a wonderful Champagne to serve your guests. Then pop the cork, and let the celebration begin!

All girls, of all ages, love jewelry of some kind. Some may be more interested in bracelets, or earrings, or necklaces, but none the less they all love some piece of jewelry. As they get older and grow into young women, they get harder to shop for, but never fear, here are some ideas to help you when shopping for your teen! Hearts, charms, lockets, some personalized and some not.

So if your teenager is more interested in stunning bracelets, why not give her a Personalized Heart Charm Toggle Bracelet? The first letter of her name is engraved for into the diamond cut heart and the open lined chains make it light looking. Another great idea is a Swarovski Crystal Silver Heart Charm Bracelet. Once again, a single letter can be engraved into the heart charm, which is towards the clip of the bracelet, for no additional charge. The bracelet is decorated with dazzling Swarovski crystals of multiple colors. This would be a perfect “Mom & Daughter” bracelet, because any mom would love this too! If your teen is into more bulky bracelets, then a wide cuff personalized bracelets would be the perfect choice. They can hold her name, initials, or nickname and are sterling silver.

Necklaces are so fun to pick from – personalized or not. They’re just stunning and can make your neck seem longer and slimmer than it is. A great surprise for your teenager would be to buy her a Crystal and Pearl Personalized Circle Charm Friendship Necklaces for her and her best friends. Each young lady could get their first initial on the circle charm and different colored crystals on the necklace. For something just for her, though, the Heart Locket Pendant on White Pearl Necklace is a beautiful gift to share with her. The locket opens up and can hold inside a picture of you and a picture of her. Yes, your teen will most definitely treasure this touching gift from you. Another cute idea is to give a Rhinestone Key to My Heart Charm Necklace. This unique necklace has two chains connected at the clasp, an shimmering rhinestone key pendant and is very chic and can be worn with any outfit she selects.

So shopping for your teenage daughter isn’t so hard if you know what you’re looking for. The more personal the better but all pieces of jewelry are beautiful and that even without it being personalized it’d be treasured forever – because it was given by you.

Peacock Swarovski Crystal

Peacock Swarovski Crystal

Every so often a new wedding trend comes along that feels really fresh and new. When you see it, you go, “Wow! Why didn’t I think of that?”. This is exactly how I felt when I first came across a surprising new wedding trend: peacock feathers.

Peacock feathers have wonderful possibilities as wedding decorations. They are rich, colorful, elegant, and above all, glamorous. The mixture of teal blue, emerald or clover green, purple, indigo, and gold is a fabulous color palette for a wedding. In addition, the exotic and unique feeling of peacock feathers makes them perfect for any bride who wants her wedding to have a strong and cohesive feeling with great style.

Both the actual peacock feathers and their colors have infinite uses in a wedding. The place that most brides will begin incorporating this special accent is the wedding flowers. Peacock feathers combine wonderfully with flowers. You can either have a few longer plumes curling out of the main part of the bouquet or tuck the colorful eyes of the feathers right into the flowers. Either way, the effect will be whimsical and unexpected. Some of the flowers that work especially well with peacock feathers are hydrangeas (blue, green, or purple), purple calla lilies, rich purple orchids, and even purple roses. Tie it all up with a metallic gold ribbon to play up the glamor and elegance of the feathers.

Another option for the bouquets and even the reception centerpieces is to let the feathers take center stage. There is no rule that the bride must carry a bouquet of flowers, after all. For a dramatic impact, carry a bouquet created entirely from showy peacock feathers. Tall plumes look stunning spilling out of tall slim vases at the reception. You can have the feathers surround a floral display like a glamorous ruff, or eschew the blossoms altogether and have your table arrangements designed exclusively with peacock feathers.

Extending a great wedding motif to the cake is a must. There are a few ways that peacock feathers can be used to decorate a cake. One is to use a few of the eyes with small clusters of flowers, such as green and purple hydrangeas, for the cake topper. Or really go all out, with a cake that is decorated to look like a peacock feather. Metallic blue fondant trimmed with gold, green, and purple frosting peacock feather “eyes” will look breathtaking. This cake design would be absolutely stunning for an elegant evening wedding.

The colors found in peacock feathers will carry easily throughout the wedding. Choose bridesmaid dresses in a rich teal satin or a deep exotic purple. To accent the solid color dresses, have bridesmaid jewelry sets custom made from Swarovski crystals in shades of teal, green, and purple. The sets of bridesmaid jewelry can be created in a tin cup style necklace, where each color of crystal is spread out along a delicate chain. The three colors look so pretty layered together that the end result will be bridesmaid gifts that your attendants will treasure for years to come. As a final accent, give each bridesmaid a clutch in a different peacock color than her dress, and stitch a small feather with the eye to the clasp.

You can really be as creative as you like with a peacock feather theme. The pattern can be used to create luxurious table linens for your reception. Swags of organza and satin in peacock colors can be draped inside the ceiling of a tent. You can even glue a little feather to each of your escort cards. The multi-colored and rich nature of peacock feathers makes it a hard motif to overdo, so you can really have fun incorporating the glamorous feathers into your wedding at every turn.

There are two classes of cool hair accessories which you can use to make yourself stand out from the crowd this year at upcoming Mardi Gras and St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Light-up or glowing hair accessories are ideal for these events that primarily take place at night. And crystal hair accessories are a more elegant choice for either day or night celebrations. Either way, your hair will light up and sparkle!

Light-up/glow hair accessories include Glowbys fiberoptic hair accessories, and iGlow hair gel. The fiberoptic hair accessories consist of a barrette housing two watch batteries and a light source. It clips into your hair light a normal barrette, but approximately 60 illuminated fibers of varying length extend out of the barrette; the ends of the fibers light up to create a cascade of lights through your hair! The flexible fibers can be treated just like strands of hair (loop, bend, cut, etc.) so they can fit any hair style. The plain Glowbys barrette can be hidden under a layer of hair so that only the lights are visible. Or the Crystal Glowbys barrette – covered with sparkling Swarovski crystals – can be worn on top of the hair like a normal barrette. The batteries last for approximately ten hours, but can be replaced and used over and over again.

iGlow hair gel also lights up your hair, but it works differently. It comes in two packets, which you mix together and then apply to your hair. Wherever the gel is applied, your hair will glow for approximately 5 hours! It can be fun to have a pre-party to decorate each other before going out. One great thing about the gel is that it generates it’s own light; it doesn’t require external light to glow, like some phosphorescent items. The gel washes off with normal shampoo or soap.

If light-up/glow is a little too much for you, you can also decorate your hair with Swarovski crystals. These won’t light up or glow, but they do add an elegant sparkle to your hair. Crystal Tresses consist of nine crystals on a nearly invisible strand that clips into the hair via two small magnets. The strand then hangs down in a line. If you prefer the freedom to place crystals anywhere in your hair, Crystal Stars are individual crystals that peel off and can be applied anywhere. So they offer a little more flexibility than Crystal Tresses. However, Crystal Stars are disposable after one-time use, whereas Crystal Tresses can be worn over and over again.

Traditional Mardi Gras colors are green, violet and gold. But Mardi Gras is all about color and flash, so almost any bright color can be used to enhance your outfit, costume or mask. And of course, green is the color of St Patrick’s Day. Glowbys come in nine different colors: Bright Green, Deep Violet, Glitzy Gold, Diamond White, Electric Blue, Princess Pink, Ruby Red, Sunburst Orange and Rainbow. Rainbow actually cycles/flashes through all the colors of the spectrum. iGlow hair gel comes in Green, Blue, White, Pink, Orange and Yellow.

For crystal hair accessories, the most popular green-hued Swarovski Crystals are Emerald and Peridot. Emerald is the traditional green associated with Ireland (the Emerald Isle), but because these crystals are somewhat dark, they don’t show up very well in dark hair. And even in blonde hair, the lighter Peridot color is probably your best bet for St Patrick’s Day. Of course, there are a plethora of non-green Swarovski Crystal shades that can be worn for Mardi Gras; specifically, Crystal Tresses and Crystal Stars come in: Clear, Sapphire, Ruby, Pink Ice, and Tanzanite.

On your wedding day, you want to look the most beautiful from head to toe, as everyone’s eyes are focused on you. Curious eyes see what jewelery you are wearing; curious minds are assessing the value of your jewelery, gown, wedding shoes and so on and so forth. Young girls focus their eyes on your make-up especially, your hairstyle. Finding the suitable hair-style is the second difficult task with the first one being selecting the wedding dress.

The bride should decide whether to keep her hair straight, long, pulled up or away from your face. There are many half up and half down wedding hair styles that one can choose from. If one is planning to pull up her hair, few strands can be left loose in wisps to get a soften look in the face. The hair style should be selected that it suits the face. The style should be such that the bride should feel comfortable whether it is pulled up or down.

Sometimes, the bride wishes to put half her hair down. There are many combinations and possibilities to keep her hair half up or down. Curls can be done which gives a romantic soft look. Variations to the bun like pleats, twists and plaits can be done. A geometric design will suit the same and it looks bold with silk flowers or ivory flowers to ornament this design.

A half up and half down hairstyle with ringlets gives a perfect gorgeous look. The long curly locks cascading down the back of the bride in an off the shoulder gown looks too good on a wedding day. She should ensure to practice for a few times before the wedding day. Washing the hair the day, before the hairstyle is made would be good idea, as it holds the curls and updo hair styles in a better way.

If the bride wants longer, fuller hair on her wedding day, then one can use the hair extensions to get the look. These hair extensions are made purely from human hair and are dyed to match with the color of the bride’s hair. It gives that great professional touch.

Hair accessories include the shimmering combs, hairpins and tiaras to top off your look with romance and elegance. Crystal curvy clips and crystal combs, pearl combs, silk flower hair clips, rose hair clips, bobby pins, pearl hair bands, crystal tiara, crystal hair bands etc.

Care should be given while selecting the hairstyle that the tiara or the veil should compliment and not cover the same. If the bride is wearing a long floor length veil, the hairstyle must be tough enough to hold the same.

Glitter Eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are a great way to add a little something extra to your regular makeup routine.

A full strip of eyelashes is quicker and easier to apply than the little individual falsies. Strips of fake eyelashes are extremely varied in the kinds you have to choose from! Some are relatively short, like natural eyelashes, others are much longer. Some are subtle and sparse, while others are thick and full. They range in color from the lightest brown to the darkest black. Some of them even have crazy colors like red or blue or purple. There are even specialty eye lashes that have glitter or tiny rhinestones on them for real “oomph.” Other specialty eyelashes are made of other material like feathers.

The first step is to do your regular eye makeup. Use a beautiful eye shadow, and possibly a highlighter at the brow bone and inner corner. Then, apply your eyeliner. The best type is a pencil or kohl eyeliner that you can smudge after application. This will help to make the line of the strip of fake eyelashes less noticeable. Next, run the base of the strip gently through the eyelash glue.

The base should be well-coated, but not dripping with adhesive. Do not apply right away! Let the glue dry – not all the way – just a little. It should dry just enough to be a little bit sticky or tacky. Then, using your fingers or preferably a pair of tweezers, line the eyelashes up with your eye. Then place them, not squarely on the eyelids or attached to your own eyelashes, but right at the place where your natural eyelashes meet your eyelid. Hold them there for about ten seconds, until they begin to dry. Then you can let go. Wait about a minute before you work on your other eye, so that you don’t accidentally knock the first set of eyelashes askew while they are still drying.

If you like, add a bit of liquid liner to further disguise the eyelashes AND add more drama. Then, also optional, some mascara. Use your own judgement for that!

Swarovski, the world of jewellery is so familiar to fashionistas. Founded 114 years ago in 1895 to produce precision cut crystal elements or components, Swarovski expanded in the mid-1970s into the creation of finished crystal products, jewelleries, fashion accessories, and other decorative items. What’s more, it is also an important supplier of crystals to watch manufacturers. Based on its long-time research and development, thus it is not strange that it moves into watchmaking.

With over a hundred years of experience in cutting crystals, Swarovski has decoded to launch its own sparkling timepieces recently, making a major step into women’s fashion watch market for the Austrian crystal jewellery specialist. It covers It covers a new segment of the watch market. As far as I concerned, since the brand new collection been released, it is widely popular and dubbed by many visitors ‘the right collection for the right time’.

Let me introduce items of the collection one by one in the following posts. Today’s review is Octea Sport. The Octea line features the Sport, Mini and Lady watches.

The Octea Sport watch is inspired by diving watches and aims to combine the reliability of a Swiss quartz calibre movement with the delicacy of crystal. Described as both functional and elegant, the sporty watch captures the light, while the angles of its stainless steel case are faceted like Swarovski crystals. The watch features a unidirectional rotating bezel, and a timer appears at the heart of the Soleil cut crystal. Featuring a double-level 39mm dial, strong numbering and hand-applied indexes, this watch is said to meet international standards of sportsmanship and water resistance. It has luminescent hands and a non-reflecting sapphire crystal watch glass.

The wide cabochon-set crown bears the signature metallic Swan on a lacquer base. This model is also adorned with the Swanflower motif on its back which is engraved in high relief. The Octea Sport can be worn on a metal bracelet or on a soft rubber strap enhanced by six faceted crystals, traditionally mounted and set. The faceted horns and buckle are further Swarovski markers.
