There are many ways to save money on your wedding without compromising on style. A lot of the time if you choose to do the work yourself you can save a huge amount as with most suppliers you are paying for their labour more than anything else. Let’s have a look at some of the different parts of a wedding and how you can keep the costs down.
-Choose flowers that are in season at the time of your wedding as these will be much more affordable than those which are not.
-If doing your flowers yourself then buy them at your local flower market as opposed to florist stores.
-For your reception tables choose designs that are simple and incorporate other things such as decorative vases and candles so that all the emphasis is not on the flowers as this will take the pressure off a little bit.
-Go for buttercream icing instead of fondant as it is cheaper
-Stick to a simple design so that your labour costs are minimal
-Choose cupcakes instead of a cake as they can easily be made and decorated at home.
-Choose a digital photographer and ask for your photos on a disc instead of in an expensive album
-Just have your photographer there for the ceremony and provide disposable cameras on your reception tables for the guests to take shots in the evening.
-Give a newbie a change. Choose someone newly qualified as they will be much cheaper but always make sure you see lots of examples of their work first!

I sorted out my music stuff and I decided to sell a bunch of it including my akai mpd24 from musicians friend at a very reasonable price. It’s some kind of inventory sale like on malls. I came up with this idea because I noticed that I’d been piling up a lot of stuff on my room. It’s kind of look like I am turning into a hoarder. Most of my things are music related because obviously music is one of my main passions in life. Hopefully I get to convert my old stuff into money and could enroll myself on a music class of some sort. That would be awesome.

We all know that our favorite handbags this year are bigger and brighter and better than ever before and celebrities agree to that. It’s agreeing that the best way to punch up an outfit or any outfit is with a colorful purse.
Shoulder bags, totes and satchels are appearing everywhere in rainbow hues. Pick your favorite pair and color it with anything and everything in your closet. Match and mix your bright blue dress with vibrant orange handbag for big statement or choose white tee to accompany your pink bag for smaller statement. Whether you choose to do a lot of color or little colorful handbag is sure to brighten your day and your outfit.

I have this thing that every month I have to buy something for my house. I started this project after the renovation of my house late last year. It is my conscious effort to maintain my house good condition. This month I am planning to buy this fire resistant printed tablecloth that I saw online. I am planning of look for it on malls because I want to actually see it first. But if I don’t find one available on malls or home depot I could settle for the online shops. Hopefully it is a good item to have on my home.

This product is amazing, it goes on silky and so does your makeup after this base product, no shine and healthy glow. Smashbox is really onto something with primer and complexion perfection. I absolutely adore this product. It makes my skin smooth and evens out splotches and any flakes I may have so I look flawless. May friend say, if I were stranded on a desert island well, I’d hope I had some water and multi tool and maybe my husband but if I got to bring one thing from my daily makeup bag, it would be smashbox.

This mini satchel from Coach is a looker alright. The color to this bag is very vivid, something you cannot usually find with bags made from leather material. But the satin sheerness to this keeps it delicate. There’s always that tendency for the bag to snag and run because of it. A beautiful addition to your bag collection but this one can never be an everyday piece.

I was still amazed on how technology has evolved before my very eyes especially on music. Everything nowadays is digital and somehow I understand those who are having a hard times adjusting on this change. I am talking about the people who still love vinyl records. But then we must accept and adjust to change no matter how scary it can become. I am also having apprehensions on this technology change when in terms of music but I think I am ready to embrace it. As for me, I am starting by buying cheap bose portable speaker at musicians friend.

The world is full of beautiful people. You are one of them. Some days are better than others though, and a bad mood, a red pimple or a pair of jeans that are a little too tight can cause us to easily forget about our own beauty.
Smile. The number one thing you can do to feel beautiful is to smile more often. This will automatically put you in a better mood, and you’ll receive more positive energy from other people as well.
Think of your body as an instrument. Stop looking at your body as an unmovable object and start thinking of it as something that can be tuned. Little tune-ups every morning (moisturizer, chapstick, a wink and a smile) will improve your sense of beauty.Buy yourself a new shirt, pants or pair of shoes. Our self-esteem is closely linked with our consumerism. Your budget may allow you a $6 shirt or a $60 shirt; either way, a new article of clothing will give you a confidence boost.
Pamper yourself every once in a while. Coerce your partner into a massage. Light some candles, and take a bubble bath. Curl up in bed with a good book. Engage in your favorite relaxation technique. Beautiful people find time for themselves. Work on your relationships with friends and family. Many studies have shown that positive, fulfilling relationships help people maintain a sense of inner and outer beauty. Kill them with kindness. Remember–the most beautiful people are usually the nicest and most appealing to be around for reasons other than their beauty.
