Mind your English guys....

In going to parties, it is preferable to use the universal language in communicating with others. You just don't know who these people are and it is rude to be using a language that some people may not understand.  So at parties, English is the way to go.  Practice your English, polish it, enrol in classes that will make you use the language naturally.

what makes a good valedictory speech?

First of all, a good valedictory speech must be sincere and should echo the speaker's heart and mind. It should be emphatic and should use words that are fresh and alive. Basically, good valedictory speeches should contain three important parts: an expression of gratitude to the right people, a brief lookback of significant events in the past, and a motivation for the graduates to pursue their goals and ambitions in life. They may not necessarily come in that order, it is up to the writer to work his way around the three parts. But, here's the but, never ever repeat someone else's speech. Try as much as possible to avoid cliches which are usually rampant in speeches like this. So, just be yourself and deliver your speech effectively by seeing to it that the three important parts are there.

sleeveless for US First Lady

Critics have noticed the fashionable way that the US First Lady Michelle Obama is seen showing off her arms in her finely donned clothes.  It seems like a lot of people still can't accept this kind of style worn by top officials or first ladies of any country.  But considering the First Lady's overall physical fitness, I think she is able to do justice to her clothes, with or without sleeves.  Former 1st Lady Jackie O did it in her most glamorous style, and we don't see why M. Obama shouldn't be allowed to express her true style.

look like you're blushing naturally....

How to Apply Blush on...

apply powder

Blush has a tendency to darken with body heat, so make sure you apply blush sparingly. And always apply color cosmetics in natural light whenever possible so you know exactly what your make up will look like.

1.  Find the apple of your cheek by smiling into a mirror. Choose a good blusher brush. Then, pick up some blusher color with the brush and shake off the excess.

2.  Apply blush by brushing the cheek color lightly over the apple of the cheek using short, up-and-down vertical strokes moving toward the top of your ear in a teardrop shape with the thinner part at the top and the wider part pointing toward your nose. 

3.  Blend into your foundation and at the hairline, with one soft horizontal motion on the top of the vertical strokes, without brushing any color onto the hair.

4.  If it looks like you have too much blusher. Apply blush by dusting cheeks with powder to tone down the color. 

5.  If you still feel that you need a little more color on your face, you can add a little blush across your forehead by brushing a very slight coat of cheek color just above the eyebrows.

Proper Way to Choose Right Blusher Colors...

You need to choose blusher colors from either the warm or cool palette, depending on the undertone of your skin. If you have a cool skin undertone you will want to apply blush colors that are cool such as pink or mauve. If you have a warm undertone you will be more comfortable with colors that have yellow or orange tones.

why hire a wedding planner?

Some couples who plan to get married make the big mistake of putting all the details in their hands, doing everything from church arrangements, invitation, venue, caterer, flowers, program, entourage, church service, wedding ring, outfit, host, singer, give-aways, bouquet, cake, photography, etc. All these put together only spell headache. There's a lot of leg work involved and chances are, many of the significant segments will be forgotten or left out. Leave it to a wedding planner who will foresee all the nitty-gritty details of even the simplest wedding.

The services of a wedding planner range from full to partial planning. So if you want to save and do half of the work, it is all up to you. But if you want to be stress-free and have a perfect wedding wherein you can truly flash your nicest smile, then get someone to do the worrying for you. Hire a wedding planner or coordinator.

UK products flood the city

The term UK is actually short for "ukay" or secondhand clothes from the US.  There's this big store that sells class A "ukay-ukay" clothes, actually you don't have to make "ukay" anymore in this particular store because all the UK clothes are in hangers like how they present clothes in boutiques.  Even the upper class go to this ukay store because there are so many good ones to choose from, it is only a matter of taste or having an inner eye for beauty.

In going to ukay stores, it is best to look for one that sells only class A items so you will only get to choose from very good ones.  There are even some clothes here that look like they'd never been used before. Prices in this class A ukay store range from Php 80 to Php 180 for pants and jackets.

in making graduation speeches....

Make it as sincere as possible. Never waste your energy writing out a lengthy but boring and insincere valedictory or welcome or inspirational speech. Be there with the audience and say what you want to say in crisp language, minus the usual archaic adornments that make graduation exercises so deadly shallow and boring. We know what graduation exercises are all about. It is very long and tedious, it takes hours, and togas are not necessarily the best outfit to wear especially when the place is not air-conditioned. We know that the programme is tedious enough, so please, spare the audience and your fellow graduates, make your speeches alive and direct to the point.
