“Light Magic” Necklace

Guest blogger, Sheyla, from Jewelry-Fashion.net has put together a post for us to enjoy. Be sure to surf on over to her blog and leave a few comments after!



You know ladies, as probably all women I prefer bijouterie and I like wearing all kinds of things for self-embellishing. But most of all I adore original jewelry pieces. My dear friends are well aware of my small weakness.

Yesterday it was my birthday and my friends made me a great present! Just look at the picture – this necklace is called “Light Magic”. It is made of white gold and represents a pendant on a black lace with a white gold snap.

And what is great – there’re 6 diamonds in the necklace! And there is also a white pearl in the center. My friends told me that their present was not occasionally called “Light Magic”. Diamonds symbolize purity – purity of thoughts and intentions, and white pearls are a symbol of soul purity and gentleness. Sellers told my friends that the necklace was best suitable for women with such qualities. And they immediately decided to buy it for me.

Oh, I was touched to tears…

To tell you the truth, I’m on the top of the world! I like their present very much and of course I’ve immediately put it on .And a great thing has happen to me today – everybody has started to pay attention to me. One woman even asked where I bought such a cool jewelry piece.

In general I’m full of energy and optimism and I feel that this “Light Magic” necklace is not a simple beautifying widget but a kind of magic talisman that brings happiness s and luck to its owner.

Oh, I’m an adult woman but believe in miracles…Though I think it’s not bad. Moreover, psychologists say that the most important thing is a good and positive tuning. So I believe in it and everything will be great in my life!

Corn Chowder

Recipe Author: Shelly Franz

Serves: 4 – 6

Start to Finish: 60 minutes

Shelly says: I’m sure you could lighten this up with turkey bacon, skim milk, and low-fat margarine, but after tasting this version, I bet you won’t want to! This stuff is Oh My God good on a cool fall day!

INGREDIENTS:

6 slices bacon, fried crisp
6 medium potatoes, diced
1/2 onion, cut up or chopped coarsely
1 16 oz. bag frozen corn kernels (if you can get fresh and cut it off the cob, DO IT!)
1 pint half-and-half
1 stick real butter (I used salted because that’s what I had)
salt and black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Cook potatoes in boiling water until tender. Drain and mash slightly using hand potato masher, (you want them chunky, not smooth). While potatoes are cooking, fry bacon until crisp, set aside. In a tablespoon of drippings, saute onion pieces until translucent and tender. Add corn kernels, and stir onion and corn together until corn is thawed and hot and/or cooked; this will take longer for frozen, of course. Cut up butter and add to hot drained mashed potatoes, return to stove. Add corn and onion mixture, then half-and-half. Season to taste, and simmer over LOW heat until butter has completely melted and everything’s nice and hot. Crumble cooked bacon over the top.

Some of the recipes I read called for thickening, but this really doesn’t need it. The potatoes do the thickening, and the half-and-half makes it just creamy enough.

10 Great Hair Care Tips

While all of these tips won’t make you look like you’ve hired a personal hairdresser, they will help you look the very best that you can each and every day. When it comes to hair care, remember that you wear your hair everyday. Now isn’t it worth the time, effort and money that it takes to keep it looking spectacular?

If you watch the tabloids, you know that even the stars have bad hair days. It just seems that when the professional stylists are out of the picture, it is inherently human to have a less than glamorous mane. But you can do your part to stay ahead of the battle by following these great tips for hair care.

1. Use a professional conditioner that is formulated for your
specific hair type. While you can skimp a little on the
shampoo, a good, professional conditioner is a must have. Look
for products in salons that are customized for your hair type.
For instance: If you have color or a perm, choose a conditioner
that is for chemically processed hair. And stay away from those
all-in-one shampoo and conditioner combos.

2. Choose a cut tailored to your face and body shape. The
number one mistake that people make when choosing a new
hairstyle is to pick a style based on popularity rather than
how it will enhance their features. Always choose a new cut
based on how it will enhance or detract from your facial
features and build. If you have broad shoulders, choose a
full-bodied cut over a close cropped head hugging doo.

3. Don’t forget your UV protectants. Just as your skin gets
damaged by wind and sun, so does your hair. To combat this,
look for finishing products such as mousses, gels and sprays
that block UV rays.

4. Keep your appointments. Did you know that your hair will
split faster than it will grow? You need to get a trim every 6
to 8 weeks, even if it’s just a micro trim. A good hairdresser
makes them good because they know what to leave on the head,
not take off.

5. Leave chemicals to the professionals. There is a reason why
beauticians need to go to school to learn how to handle
chemicals and hair processes. You can do irreparable damage
with these products even if the package says that it’s way
easy. And even if you don’t make your hair fall out, you could
end up looking like a clown and paying a stylist big bucks to
fix your mess. (Note: Most stylists charge double the rate for
corrective color than they do for normal color processes)

6. Get color for interest and body. Every cut needs a little
bit of color to make it truly breathtaking. No matter whether
your taste is subtle or dramatic, you can add interest and
volume to your tresses with a color process. Highlights,
lowlights, all over color, gray coverage, you name it, it’s all
good for your look.

7. Do weekly conditioning treatments. Even if your hair is
extremely healthy, it is constantly on the attack from wind,
sun, cold and heat. During the summer months, your hair is
battered even more when it absorbs chlorine and other chemicals
from your pool.

8. Get an ionic ceramic flat iron. Instead of frying your hair
with a conventional metal plated flat iron. Straighten your
tresses, add shine and infuse moisture with one of the a
negative ionic flat irons. We personally use T3 irons for all
our work.

9. Choose your styling products wisely. Avoid products that
leave build-up on your hair. If you see white gunk, that means
that your product is not water-soluble and may be coating your
hair shaft. Build-up causes limpness, breakage and inability to
curl not to mention the white flakes.

10. Did you know that if you use a towel after your shower to
dry your hair you are causing split ends and adding static
electricity to your hair. Don’t rub the towel back and forth
over your hair, scrunch the towel around your hair like your
would scrunch crackers in your soup.
