How To Look And Feel Your Best On Your Wedding Day

How To Look And Feel Your Best On Your Wedding Day

Every bride wants to look like a queen on her wedding day; unfortunately, unlike a queen, she doesn’t have a squad of ladies-in-waiting to arrange everything in her place according to her wishes. Exhaustion inevitably builds up, and that’s why looking your best becomes hard even for those who, as a rule, have no trouble with it. Fortunately, there are tips and tricks that may help you out on your big day.

1. Get Your Skin Glowing

There are things every woman learns to do in order to keep her skin in top shape: washing make-up off before going to sleep, using various facial masks and face creams, and so on. However, when it comes to a wedding, the bride is likely to want something special, and the usual drill is no longer enough. In order to really get your skin glowing, you have to use a combination of chemical peels, deep pore cleansing, and suchlike – and it is better to consult a specialist before attempting anything on your own.

    2. Work on Your Smile

    And we don’t just mean practicing it. If you are not blessed with snow-white teeth but want to look perfect in your wedding photos, there are ways to remedy this, including a number of procedures aimed at whitening teeth, either short-term or for a prolonged period of time.

      3. Choose Your Dress in Advance

      A wedding dress is the centerpiece of the entire ceremony, and it is one thing that absolutely has to look perfect. That’s why it pays to choose it long in advance, without leaving anything to chance, and prepare the dress for the wedding and yourself for the dress – that is, making sure it fits you perfectly and that it corresponds to the general style of the ceremony.

        4. Choose a Fitting Hairstyle

        The same goes for hairstyle – you should realistically take into account the possibilities of your hair, when making sure the style you choose fits your dress and the decoration of the ceremony. Choose and purchase the headpiece (if you are going to have one) in advance. Again, prepare everything beforehand.

          5. Have Your Nails Professionally Manicured

          This should be done neither too much in advance nor too late. If you do it too early there is always a risk to break a nail or chip the polish, so you shouldn’t simply leave time for it to get damaged. If you don’t like overly long nails, simply make sure they look nicely trimmed and polished – remember, your fingers are going to be in the foreground of attention this day!

            6. Have a Test Drive of Your Make-Up

            The results of using your chosen make-up shouldn’t come as a surprise – have a careful look at how everything looks together before the wedding day, even if you really like the combination.

              7. Have a Good Night’s Sleep

              A hen party may be a tempting prospect, but it is really better to either avoid having it at all or end it early. No matter how much you may want to celebrate, the night before the wedding isn’t a very good time for partying – and, especially, drinking. You don’t want to remember being or be remembered as hungover, exhausted, or in a horrible mood on your wedding day.

                8. A Light Meal the Day Before

                An extra chop eaten the evening before the wedding can make it really hard to get into that dress in the morning. So, if you want to avoid frustration of this kind, don’t overeat – it is really not such a big price to pay for looking perfect.

                  The wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life; but it won’t just happen all by itself. To look and feel your best, make sure to plan the important things in advance not to be stressed later, and take care of yourself – we hope these tips will help you out!

                  How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                  How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                  Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                  You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                  Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                  1. Work on the small tasks.

                  When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                  Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                  2. Take a break from your work desk.

                  Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                  Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                  3. Upgrade yourself

                  Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                  The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                  4. Talk to a friend.

                  Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                  Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                  5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                  If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                  Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                  Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                  6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                  If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                  Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                  Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                  7. Read a book (or blog).

                  The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                  Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                  Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                  8. Have a quick nap.

                  If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                  9. Remember why you are doing this.

                  Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                  What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                  10. Find some competition.

                  Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                  Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                  11. Go exercise.

                  Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                  Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                  As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                  Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

                  12. Take a good break.

                  Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                  Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                  Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
