Teeth Whitening

August 7, 2017 by admin

According to Charles Guthrie, a senior research analyst at Penn State University, whiter teeth are associated with a healthier mouth, something that plays a role in mate selection. “A less attractive smile would be an implied negative nonverbal communication,” he told us. “Is this person going to be a good mate? Or, is this person going to bring about harm in one way or another?”

Though, there are plenty of people with not-so-pearly teeth in happy relationships. But like manicuring facial hair or plucking eyebrows, teeth whitening has become a mainstay in the beauty routines of millions and out of the dozens of products available, a few victors emerged in our research and usability tests.

Did You Know?

Teeth whiteners work by getting where non-bleaching products can’t.

Each of your teeth is made up of multiple layers. There’s an inner dentin layer and a hardshell outer enamel layer, which acts as a barrier to protect your teeth. Over time, the stuff you eat and drink — berries, red wine, coffee — forms another layer, the pellicle layer, on top of the enamel. (You don’t have to be a chain smoker or red wine guzzler to have stains on your teeth; all adults have both surface-level and deep stains from everyday living.)

Over the years, the pellicle layer may begin to penetrate the porous enamel layer. In other words, stains from your three-cups-a-day coffee habit seep into the enamel and take up permanent residence. No amount of surface-level scrubbing can get rid of these stains once they’ve penetrated the enamel layer.

Enter: teeth whiteners with bleaching chemicals, aka peroxides. These can penetrate the tooth enamel and initiate a chemical reaction that breaks up the staining compounds. Read the rest of this entry »

Love And Wedding And Divorce In America

August 4, 2017 by admin

Divorce in America is estimated at 50-percent. One of every two marriages will end in front of a judge and what was once a promising future will have degenerated into silence at best and thunderous shouting at worst. Other times, there’s arson and shooting involved.

The only proven way to avoid divorce is never get married. Two couples, one in New York and one in rural Tennessee didn’t even last long enough to change out of their wedding attire before sparks flew.

Fire In New York

When the nuptials were called off, at the last minute, in New York, the groom, from Texas, turned into a pyromaniac.

On July 9, 2017, law enforcement answered calls about several vehicles on fire in the north end of Plattsburgh. Two vehicles were totaled, and others sustained minor damage.

Jimmy Williams, 35, was quickly pointed out as a suspect. After wading through hours of video surveillance, law enforcement followed Williams to Houston and returned him to Plattsburgh. Williams is being held in Clinton County Jail on a $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.

The bride isn’t saying why the wedding was canceled.

A Shooting In Tennessee

On August 1, 2017, a bride was arrested for pulling a gun from her wedding dress and pointing it at the groom. And she pulled the trigger.

After the wedding, the couple began drinking at a local motel. When they began fighting, just hours after saying, “I do,” Kate Prichard, 25, reached under her wedding dress, removed a 9mm pistol from her thigh holster and aimed at her husband’s head.

According to Murfreesboro Police, the gun wasn’t loaded, but the bride had ammo in the room. The woman went inside, got ammunition and returned, firing into the air.

Cops who responded had to tell the husband the honeymoon was over and his new wife was heading to jail. Pritchard, still in her wedding dress, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated domestic assault.

Despite the dire statistics, some couples go to ridiculous lengths to tie the knot. Occasionally, the stress of the wedding day spills over onto the guests.

Surviving A Lavish Wedding As A Guest

According to Daniel Post Senning, co-host of Awesome Etiquette, everything starts with the invitation.

“The invitation tells you a lot,” says Senning. “Is there a reception? What’s the formality? Is there a reply card?”

The invitation even helps you get dressed, so check the dress code — it will be in the lower-right corner of the invitation.

The dress code will also be spelled out in the invite. White tie is fancier than a black tie, and it’s always a black tailcoat over a white starched shirt for men. A woman can get away with a ball gown for either level of formality. If the wedding is indoors, and after 6:30 pm, odds are it will be black tie. If it is an outdoor wedding, the ladies need to wear hell protectors and gives a little leeway in what is appropriate attire.

Have Fun With Fancy

When things start to get very formal, they can get a little playful. Velvet slippers can be paired with a tux at the most formal events. Crazy hats worn by women at British royalty weddings are in vogue at some American throwdowns.

Lavish doesn’t always mean old-school, black-tie events at New York City estates where the caviar is spooned out with gold utensils by men in white. Formal doesn’t need to mean scary, either. Relax, take heart in the fact that there just aren’t many of those type weddings around in America.

But when in doubt — just ask and hope the couple invites you to an after-divorce party.

Wedding car with a difference

February 12, 2017 by admin

Most people will only get married once. So when it comes to their wedding day, they want transport that is going to stand out. Brides wants something that is elegant and classy, not the typical everyday car they would drive around in. She is going to want something that is going to wow her guests when she arrives at the ceremony and also after she is married with her newlywed husband.

Typically a popular choice for brides is to hire a vintage car from a hire company. 1930s appears to be a particularly favoured era, with brides opting for cars such as Badsworth Landaulette or maybe a 1935 Rolls Royce Phantom.

Some brides however prefer to go for a modern look when arriving on her special day, therefore they often prefer to turn up in a limousine. Some wedding hire companies also offer a range of colours for the blushing ride and can even offer pink limousines for brides to turn up in, certainly car with a difference.

However what about the groom? A lot of grooms now want to turn up to their wedding with sophistication too. As a result its becoming more popular for grooms to also hire transport to take him and his best man to the ceremony. A wedding day sports car can be a great way for grooms to also share the wow factor on his wedding day. There are various wedding hire cars across the UK offering sports car hire for the special day. One particularly recommended is Prestige Car Hire based in Cardiff. Although based in Cardiff, they offer their cars to newlyweds nationwide across the UK. They offer top of the range Porches as well Range Rovers for weddings. This would be a great wow factor for guests if the groom was to turn up in a Porsche Panamera Turbo S.

By hiring a sports car for their wedding day, grooms also have the option of self-drive as well as having a chauffeur to drive you to the wedding. This is very likely to appeal to grooms, especially if they have a dream of owning a Porsche or Ferrari. This will give them that dream come true for the day, and what better way than to do it on your wedding day!


How to find a wedding photographer in Mumbai

September 19, 2016 by admin

There are many wedding photographers out there and picking one that will deliver according to your expectations can be a daunting task. After all so much is at stake and you want pictures that you will hold dear for a lifetime. We have a quick coffee with wedding photography specialists Flgroe Studios in Mumbai to hear their tips on finding that perfect wedding photographer-

1. Decide your style – What kind of pictures appeal most to you? Is candid / documentary your style? Or do you like portraiture – more classic style of photography where subjects are posed? Do you want something conventional? Would you let the photographer experiment with fine art? There are no rights or wrongs, just individual preferences.


2. Do your market research – There are literally hundreds of photographers out there. Look at local listings, social media and ask around! Don’t just go with a reference from one source. Carry out your own investigation. Check their social media accounts to see what they’ve been working on lately. Read feedback on their posts.

3. Fix interviews – You and your potential photographer need to meet at least once before finalization. This benefits both parties as they develop an understanding of each other and expectations for the outcome are set.

4. Ask to see complete wedding albums – Making your decision based on viewing one stellar image each from different weddings is a very dangerous idea. Look for a photographer that displays complete albums on their website. Or ask to see at least a few albums if not so.

5. Review pictures carefully – Look past what the bride is wearing or how beautiful the décor is. Look into the quality of the image. Are subjects adequately lit? Is the focus proper? Has the photographer made use of ‘filters’ to cover up any shortfalls?

6. Make sure you are compatible with your photographer – you should be able to openly communicate with your photographer. You should also feel free enough to pose for the camera with them. This is not the time to hesitate.

7. Compare packages – ask the photographers you have shortlisted to send you quotations for the complete coverage of your wedding events. Insist on breakdowns to see if you can adjust the quote by adjusting your requirements. While comparing the lump sum quotes, do ask the photographer who has quoted more about what they are offering in addition to the other wedding photographer.

8. Discuss the fine print – This will usually be a set standard for any photographer. But make sure you know what are the various deliverables and the due dates.

Telling a Story with your Wedding Photos

May 1, 2014 by admin

If there is one area of professional photography where the range of photos done by even the best professionals can go from maudlin and boring to emotional and exciting, then those are the wedding photos. Different people want different things but we can all agree that everyone wants something special and something they will remember. One of the best ways to do this and to also provide people with the best possible memory of their happiest day is to tell a little story with the photos. Do not just plop the couple and their friends and family in front of the camera. Make a little movie with the photos and let them relive their best day ever again and again. To give you an idea of what we are talking about, we will show it to you on an example from Finessence Photography . More precisely, we will show you this on the wedding photos from the wedding of Rachel and Matt that they covered



It all starts with one of the groomsmen, most probably the best man, coming with a jacket.

It is a simple, black and white photo which looks more like something you would see in a magazine or a news article. Still, you get the feeling of the place, you get the feeling of the entire day and you get the feeling that these are people and not just models who are posing for the photos.

We get to see some more photos of the groomsmen and the groom, Matt (second from the left in the first photo)

Once again, you somehow feel drawn into the proceedings, seeing the groomsmen having a laugh and a drink, trying to figure out how the bowties work and so on. These are real people who are having fun. Then of course, there is the obligatory posing photo.

We are then transported to the bride’s part of the pre-wedding happenings and once again, we are greeted with a photo that shows us the preparations, the bride is getting her make-up done.

We get to see the bridesmaids putting on their dresses, still barefoot, we see the ring-bearer (a cute little girl) getting dressed, with a little help from the bride’s father and so on. We are once again part of the wedding.


The Wedding

These photos speak for themselves and you almost feel like you are watching a film of the wedding, done by someone with an immaculate eye for beauty and details. You will once again notice a plot and a rhythm to the photos. We will let the photos talk.



After the ceremony

We are also invited to the celebration and the first shot is that of the venue and some guys standing in front of it. You can almost hear the music and you can almost hear what the joke is about.

We go inside and listen to the speeches

The dance

The couple is gone


You can see how this sort of wedding photography makes for a more intimate set of photos and a more intimate atmosphere. One thing that you guarantee yourself and your clients if you do the wedding photos this way is that every wedding will be different and that they will see real people they know and now models who are trying their best to just look good in dresses and suits.

Wedding Makeup Secrets

August 2, 2013 by admin

On one of the most special days of your life, looking your best is essential. Part of looking your best on your wedding day may involve enlisting the help of a makeup artist like Tamika Makeup and Beauty. As you read this article, you’ll learn a few wedding makeup secrets that will help you look your best.

Winged, Liquid Eyeliner & Fake Lashes

An easy, critical step in looking especially elegant on your wedding day is to apply winged liquid liner along the upper lash line. Makeup artists often include this as one of the first steps in applying bridal makeup because it instantly makes the eye pop and look larger. Winged liquid liner can also be traced over pencil to last longer. Fake eyelashes will also offer an elegant look while also creating larger eyes and are a great alternative to clumpy mascara that could potentially leak during the ceremony from happy tears.

Shimmery Eye Shadow

A second wedding makeup secret the best makeup artists know is shimmery eye shadow. Shimmery eye shadow represents the most feminine kind of makeup, which perfectly accommodates bridal makeup. The most seasoned makeup artists know that applying a shimmery cream colored eye shadow to the lid and to the inner corners of the eyes will make them pop. Then, applying a warmer, shimmery eye shadow, like mauve or taupe, to the crease will make the eyes stand out and appear larger.

Lip Liner and Matching Lip Gloss

A third wedding makeup secret is lip liner and a matching lip gloss. Lipstick or lip gloss will rub off from drinking or may fade quickly. However, by simply applying lip liner you’ll not only make the lips appear larger, but will also have set a base for the lip gloss. Next, applying a matching lip gloss will provide a fresh look to your lips that will outlast the kisses, drinks, and hours.

Wedding makeup secrets can be easily accomplished by following a few easy steps. Sticking to the basics provided in this article will provide optimal results for your big day.

Many couple live separate life because they don’t have enough money to go through with divorce proves and hire layer etc. A divorce or separation is not just about separation of two people but there are so many other things has been divided among partners like financial assets, who is going to take care of kids, child support, property, debt and credit etc. Due to which, one partner has to suffer after the divorce.

A postnuptial or postnup agreement is a legal contract between spouses which has been signed after the marriage, in which they decide that the separation of assets, debts and other financial instruments including child support, in case of separation or divorce. Postnup agreement is sometime confused with prenup agreement where prenup agreement has been signed before marriage. Calling postnup as prenup after marriage would not be wrong because there is only difference of time between both of them.

Postnuptial Agreement is not legal separation agreement.

Wedding Venues

January 9, 2016 by admin

Navigating wedding venues is not the easiest affair in the world. The task can be daunting, confusing, and bewildering – all at the same time. After all, there are many factors that come into play.

With that in perspective, here, we tell you everything you need to know about wedding venues in a comprehensive, but informative, manner.

Picking the right venue

You need not pick the most expensive venue you can afford to have an amazing wedding. However, what you should do is try to pick a location that makes you, and your partner, truly happy. Are you nature lovers? If so, why not go to Seychelles, or to the Caribbean, and spend some close time with nature? Do you fancy art and history? If that, perhaps Italy will make your wedding the most memorable! Is adventure in your blood? What about going to New Zealand and tying the knot for a change?


Decorating the venue

How you decorate your wedding venue depends a lot on your creativity. But, that should not be a matter of concern if you decide to hire a professional decorator. In fact, if your budget allows it, go ahead. In case you decide to get married in a beach, wild flowers and wooden showpieces may blend in well and showcase the offbeat vibe. If you resolve to enjoy everything the luxurious way inside a closed space, instead, then an intelligent mixture of classy lanterns and expensive fabrics should do the trick!

Budgeting like a pro

When it is time to count your money, it is important to take into account the little things. Do not just consider the hotel costs, or resort costs, and be done with your budget. Count your flight expenses, the cost of hiring a wedding planner, expenses associated with food, and all legal fees. If you do not budget well, your wedding may turn into a nightmare, instead of a dream.
