  • Take a girls trip for the holidays. Plan a girls weekend this holiday season

    If you're looking for a break from your daily office grind over the holidays, a quick girls' weekend may be just what you need. Whether you choose to stay local or go for a weekend jaunt to a warmer climate, girls' weekends are a great way to take a break from life, and get a little silly with the women in your life. Take a look at these tips for planning the perfect girls' weekend this holiday season:

    Pick your locale
    You don't have to spend a lot of money on airfare to have fun with your ladies (although flying to Cabo is definitely an option). If you're trying to save a few bucks, talk to your participating friends about your options: Maybe someone has a beach house where you can take a break from the cold or a cabin in the mountains where you can go to ski all day and cozy up by the fire at night. If you're city dwellers, there's something fun about having a "staycation" on your own turf – you can pay for a suite at a nice hotel, take advantage of all of its amenities and play tourist for the weekend. Or try looking into a short trip to another nearby city, so you don't spend your whole weekend traveling, but you can still do some fun exploring.

    If all of the women involved are OK with a little splurge, then a flight somewhere might not be out of the question. After you've decided on a location, consider finding a weekend package that includes lodging, some food and a few activities – that way you'll already have a basic itinerary.

    Find fun activities
    You'll obviously be excited for a little girls-only fun, but don't forget why you wanted to take a girls' weekend in the first place – to bond with your friends and forget about life's stresses for a couple days. If your day is packed with museums, restaurants and sightseeing, maybe consider a night in. Girl talk, games and midnight snacks always make for a great bonding ritual.

    If you and the ladies want a night on the town, think of some group games you can play together while you're out so that it's more about girl time and less about meeting guys. Do a photo scavenger hunt and take pictures of yourselves doing silly things, or even play a game of truth or dare while you're out.

    Pamper yourselves
    Nothing works better to let go of a little stress than pampering yourselves for a little while. If you're staying at a nice hotel, spend some quality time with your girls taking advantage of the massages, facials and other spa services that are available. Or fit pampering in while you're doing your sightseeing: grab mani/pedis after lunch and get pretty blowouts before exploring the city's nightlife.

  • Ideas for planning the perfect fall wedding. 5 tips for planning the perfect fall wedding

    Summer weddings are so last year … now it's all about the fall weddings! Autumn really is a beautiful time of year. The air is a little crisper and cooler, colorful leaves adorn the trees and sprinkle their way across the ground, and pumpkin spice and cinnamon flavors complement the season perfectly. Really, who wouldn't want to have a fall wedding? If you and your fiance are planning autumn nuptials, take a look at these five ideas for a beautiful fall ceremony:

    1. Set the tone right away
    Give your guests a hint of what's to be with autumnal wedding invites. Find save the dates and invitations that set the mood, like stationery decorated with orange leaves or vintage lace. Or for a more classic look try an invitation on textured white paper with a bright orange or red ribbon. 

    2. It's the most 'rustic' time of year
    Rustic weddings are very on trend right now, and fall is the best season to execute them to perfection. To play up a rustic wedding theme, try to bring it out in your decor by using vintage and weathered wooden tables, colorful florals wrapped in ribbon and twine and even using burlap or linen as table runners rather than silk or satin. Great rustic wedding venues tend to be outdoors, in places like barns, parks and even orchards or vineyards. The vibrantly colored leaves provide a stunning backdrop for an outdoor fall wedding, but be sure your guests will be warm enough (greet them with a hot spiced cider when they arrive!). 

    3. Go for gold … and red, purple and orange
    Play up the colors of the season in your florals and decorations. Gerbera daisies, lilies and chrysanthemum are all in season and make lovely, vivid wedding flowers. And colorful pumpkins and gourds make for great table decorations! Gold is a beautiful color to incorporate into your fall wedding, so consider using it in your wedding party's looks, your cake and your table settings. Gold leaves are a pretty accent on any decoration. To complement gold, play up the other colors of the season like rich purples and dark reds and oranges. For a great fall centerpiece, cluster vintage lanterns on a bed of vibrant leaves, or put two or three mini pumpkins and apples in a vase with your flowers to add even more color to the arrangements. 

    4. Serve up delicious fall fare
    Fall food is your grandmother's cornbread muffins or a slice of apple cobbler. It's warm, inviting and homey, and that's what makes it incredible. Play up the season with your caterer by offering gourmet takes on comfort foods like mac and cheese or barbeque. For dessert, incorporate some classic fall favorites like caramel apples, pumpkin pie or even s'mores. 

    5. Look the part
    For brides, finding the perfect wedding gown is only the beginning – your hair and makeup can complement the season too! Consider hairstyles with decorative braids and soft waves, and try incorporating flowers into your style as well! For makeup, dark neutrals look great around the eyes, and a pomegranate or cranberry lip tint fits the season beautifully.

  • Keep your hands smooth and soft. Tips for keeping your hands soft

    If you want to learn how to use professional treatments on hands and nails, you might want to consider nail technician training, where you'll be taught different ways to make hands and nails look beautiful. To get you started on learning about hand and nail treatments, here are a few ways to prevent dry skin and keep your hands soft and smooth:

    Prevention is key
    Prevent skin from becoming dry and cracked by taking extra precautions. Use rubber gloves while washing dishes and make sure you keep your hands covered and protected during any cold weather, as it can quickly dry out your skin.

    Use household items
    There are a few things you probably already have in your home that work wonders at making your skin softer and keeping it moisturized. Extra virgin olive oil is high in antioxidants, so it's great for healing skin. Soak your hands and feet in a moisturizing treatment made out of olive oil and a tiny bit of honey and white vinegar to rejuvenate dry skin. If you're in a pinch, look for your Vaseline – it works great to moisturize dry and cracked skin. 

    Exfoliate
    If you notice dry or flaky skin building up on your hands, use a sugar scrub or professional treatment to exfoliate and remove the dead skin. Your hands will be noticeably smoother and softer, plus they'll be easier to moisturize. 

    Hydrate
    I know this isn't the first time you're hearing this – drink lots of water. The more water you drink, the more naturally moisturized your skin will be. Experts say to drink eight glasses a day, but if that's too much, at least try to drink more than you usually do.

    Find the perfect moisturizer
    Find a moisturizer specifically made for your hands rather than using generic lotion. Look for deep penetrating hydrating serums and use these under moisturizers that contain glycerin or omega-3 fatty acids for especially soothing treatments.
