Although pastels are mainly colors that are more popular in the spring time, integrating a pastel-hued piece with popular autumn and/or winter color tones is a solid and fashionable look. A silk dress, cuffed boots, a double-breasted blazer can set off this look, with a black vintage beret for added flair.A full skirt, ruffled at the bottom, a puffy-sleeved cocoon jacket and a full hairstyle is another unique look inspired by this movie. Add a pair of ankle boots to top it off.A good floral look inspired by this movie includes a floral dress with larger floral prints and a pair of over-the-knee boots.

The four main characters in the “Sex and the City” movie exuded New York City style trends that appeal to many fashion fans. Each woman portrayed their own personal style of elegance and uniqueness. Carrie Bradshaw’s style is a mixture of high-end modern and vintage looks with bursts of color and interesting textures. Floral designs are also part of her look. A floral dress, stretch vest, and a pair of nude colored open-toed pumps, with a studded belt, funnel neck coat and gold colored bangles make a complete Carrie Bradshaw look. Samantha Jones’ style oozes sex appeal and clothing pieces that flatter the figure. Her character flaunts various colorful hues, with her signature colors being canary yellows and both brick and orange reds. This look can be pulled off with a yellow wool blazer, leopard print dress, a flap leather purse and tassel earrings.  Charlotte York’s style is more conservative, with a classic and polished trend.  Her look is not flashy but her femininity and perfectly detailed accents make her look stand out. A belted khaki dress, black crochet top and square-toed suede navy blue pumps emulate this look well. Add a sweetheart locket, a bow clutch and some rose-colored lip balm to top it off. Miranda Hobbes’ style consists of a lot of separates in her “working wardrobe” and her night look is often patterned or printed garments. A black waist-high skirt, deep purple ruffle blouse, wool blend tab coat and a pair of Gouda pumps complete a Miranda look. Gold rings and earrings give the look an added touch.

If you are looking for some fashion, makeup, jewelry and/or hairstyle ideas, you could actually get a lot of all four from watching some of your favorite movies and emulating the looks of your favorite movie stars.

OROGOLD’s Tips to Stay Forever Young – ORO GOLD Reviews

Forever young women jumpingAt one point or another, you have thought wistfully about the skin, hair or body you had when you were young. Aging is an inevitable experience of life, but there are ways to age gracefully. While there is no proverbial fountain of youth, there are changes you can make to your daily routine that help you look and feel younger. Below, learn the top 5 tips and tricks that will help you stay forever young.

Refine Your Diet

The people of Okinawa, Japan live the longest out of all citizens on Earth. Experts have long studied the diets and lifestyles these individuals lead to discover their secrets of seemingly eternal youth. To fight age, you need to do so from the inside out. Changing the types, and amounts, of food that you consume can help you feel more youthful. Always eat at least the daily recommended fruits and vegetables and add good fats, such as those from nuts, into your diet as well.

Drink More Water

Any expert on health and beauty will tell you to follow this guideline. Your body is composed of anywhere from 55% to 75% water, other individual parts are made of more water, so it makes sense that to function at an optimal level you need to consume water. Often, the face is one of the first areas to show age with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you drink an appropriate amount of water, your skin appears youthful, glowing and plump, which naturally softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond improving your appearance, water helps to keep you energized, lubricates bones and joints and improves your brain function.

Practice Proper Skin Care

Maintaining a good skin care regimen is an excellent way to help your body feel as soft and look as glowing as it did when you were young. Exfoliate skin two to three times a week to remove any dead skin cells from the surface and to stimulate circulation. Wear moisturizer and use body lotion regularly. Keeping your skin from drying out significantly helps you to look younger. Finally, apply sunscreen before you go outside, every single time you go outside. It may seem excessive, especially in the dark winter months, but the damage done by the sun’s UV rays occur no matter what the season is. Combat the harmful rays by wearing a sunscreen or finding a moisturizer with a good level of SPF in it.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

You have a busy life and it seems you can never find enough hours in the day to accomplish everything, let alone sleep an appropriate amount. However, it is important to get quality sleep each night. A good night’s sleep does more than energize you for your day ahead, it also aids weight loss and helps to keep your stress levels down. Experts recommend avoiding your technological devices, such as tablets, phones, computers and televisions for 20 minutes prior to your bedtime. A general guideline is to aim for six to eight hours of sleep each night.

Start Moving

Regular exercise in a recommendation for all people, not just those wanting to lose weight or look younger. Exercise helps to maintain muscle tone, reduce stress, shed pounds, build strong and healthy bones and increase brain power. In fact, it is thought that the simple act of walking for ten minutes a day can lessen your chance of developing Alzheimer’s.

You can’t stop the aging process, but you can practice healthy habits that keep you looking and feeling young, longer. Remember, though your skin may not be as tight as it once was, your hair doesn’t look as shiny or you suddenly aren’t as flexible, aging does have its advantages. Embrace the aging process and enjoy seeing the world from a healthy new perspective.

If you constantly feel tired and exhausted or you regularly suffer from a mid-afternoon slump then knowing how to increase your energy levels can really help you to feel more active. If you want to know the best ways to feel more energetic then read on for OROGOLD’s top tips.

Eat healthy

Eating healthy foods will help to increase your energy levels. Make sure you include lots of vegetables, fruit and whole grains into your diet as these foods are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre which help to control blood sugar levels and make you feel fuller for longer. Try to limit your consumption of sugar and high fat processed foods as these contain no nutritional value and can cause your energy levels to quickly drop leaving you feeling lethargic. Eating regular meals and snacks will also help to maintain your energy levels.

Drink water

The recommended amount of water that adults should drink is at least eight glasses every day in order to stay hydrated. Drinking water throughout the day will help to maintain your hydration levels and help to increase your energy levels. Those who don’t drink enough water often suffer with tiredness, fatigue and headaches, so keeping hydrated is extremely important for good health.

If you regularly exercise, make sure you drink enough water to replace moisture lost from perspiration. It’s also best to limit alcoholic drinks as these can cause you to feel dehydrated and tired.

Exercise

Exercising regularly will help to boost your energy levels. Try to stick to a workout schedule in order to maintain your energy levels. You don’t have to partake in rigorous exercise as many activities, such as light swimming and yoga have shown to relieve fatigue and tiredness.

Get outside

Getting outside in the sunshine and fresh air will help you to feel refreshed. Walking is also great exercise as it helps to boost energy levels. If it’s a nice day, why not try walking or even cycling to work instead of using public transport.

Sleep

Getting at least 8 hours of sleep will help you to feel fresh and alert. Not getting enough sleep can cause headaches, drowsiness and fatigue so making sure you get into a routine of sleeping 8 hours will really help to boost your energy levels. If you struggle to get a good night’s sleep, try taking a relaxing bath before going to bed, using a lavender spray or balm on your pillow and shutting off your television and phone before going to sleep.

Don’t get stressed

Feeling stressed can cause anxiety, ill health and low energy levels. To help relieve stress, try taking deep breaths, going for a walk or going for a swim. Socializing with friends and loved ones is also a good stress reliever too. Aromatherapy, massage and acupuncture can all help to restore calmness in your life and restore energy levels.

OROGOLD on Planning the Perfect Proposal – ORO GOLD Reviews

Popping the Question: Creating the Story of a Lifetime

Slipping on the engagement ringWhen it comes to weddings, brides spend months planning, shopping, agonizing over details, and waiting with anticipation for that one special day. The same can be said for the groom about planning the proposal. While some guys prefer spur of the moment proposals, popping the question usually takes weeks, if not months of planning, picking out the ring, and finding the perfect setting to make her say “Yes!”. If you’re thinking about asking the most important question of your life, there are several factors to consider: personality, timing, setting, aftermath, and of course, The Ring.

Before you even start planning a proposal, the most important thing is that you know your bride. If she hates surprises, don’t plan an elaborate and public display. On the other hand, if she is outgoing and loves attention, go for it! If you’re not so sure, try getting answers by subtly mentioning you’d like to plan a surprise birthday party for a friend, and ask if she thinks that would be a good idea. Chances are, her reaction will tell you if she would enjoy something like this for herself. Of course, you could always ask her parents, as well. It is tradition, after all, to ask the bride’s father and/or parents for their blessing before you propose. This signifies the seriousness of your intentions and is always a classy move. Even if you don’t know her parents well, this will help break the ice and allow them to see you in a positive light.

For timing, it’s all in the details. If you know your bride has a high-pressure meeting at work, unwelcome social obligations, or is generally stressed-out, hold off on the proposal. While getting engaged is a happy event, popping the question during a difficult time can cause your bride to feel thrown, and not be able to properly think it through. Once you have The Ring, look at an entire calendar month, preferably one with few obligations and current plans. Then try to narrow your timing down to one week, or one of two weekends. This allows for flexibility if something comes up that could jeopardize your timing.  Putting all of your hopes and plans into one specific day, dinner, or event could lead to running the surprise and cause disappointment for you both.

Young man making a proposal of marriageThe setting for your proposal should always have some meaning to you as a couple. Whether you choose to propose in your own home, the restaurant where you had your first date, or a romantic landmark, it should hold significance to both of you. Choosing the setting will also be easier to figure out once you know your bride’s personality and decide on your timing. Once you establish your bride’s preference over public or private proposals, your options are easy to narrow down. Your home, a quiet spot on the beach, or in a park, are great places for private proposals. These spots create an intimate setting for couples who want to relish this special moment uninterrupted. Restaurants, family gatherings, and amusement parks are popular spots for public proposals where all of the attention can be on the bride. The round of applause from onlookers at her acceptance of the proposal is a great way to create a special moment for your outgoing bride.

No matter when, where, or how you propose, there should always be a plan for what to do after she says “Yes”. A new trend is the “Engagement Moon”, or whisking your new fiancé away for a short vacation to celebrate being betrothed. Think a two hour drive or one hour flight at most, for a long weekend or something that can be planned without ruining the surprise by asking her to change her work schedule. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive (you just bought a diamond ring, after all), but can be a wonderful surprise, especially if you plan a private or more simple proposal. If a weekend getaway is not in the cards, try preparing a nice dinner at home, making a reservation, or taking her to see family and friends that are waiting to gush over the good news. Having family and friends waiting in the wings to surprise your bride is another special touch for a gal that loves being the center of attention.

Last, but not least, possibly the most important element of the proposal: The Ring. The first thing you need to know when shopping for an engagement ring, is if you even need to shop at all! Find out from family if there is an heirloom ring that she is hoping to receive for her own engagement. Offering a family ring holds incredible significance and saves a lot of money that could be used for an Engagement Moon or the wedding costs. You may also have an heirloom ring in your family, too, so check before you buy. Whether you and your bride to be have discussed the thought of marriage or not, you should be able to get a good idea of which style of ring would best suit her. Take a look at the jewelry she wears regularly- is it bold, simple, or edgy? Does she wear more silver, or gold? For an easy-going girl, a classic, round cut solitaire in white gold may be the perfect way to go. If your bride is a glamorous fashionista, you may need to do a bit more research. Walk past a jewelry store and see if she points anything out. If she has a Pintrest account, snoop through her boards to see if she has pinned any engagement rings. You can always consult with professionals and other friends that have been married, too.

The most important thing to remember when planning a proposal is that no matter how much time you have, the amount of money you can spend, or where it happens, is that it all comes from the heart. Get down on one knee, and tell her why you want to spend the rest of your life with her. That alone will create a beautiful story that you will both enjoy telling for the rest of your lives. Have a camera ready to snap a picture of the ring on her finger, and relax! Now that you’re engaged, the hard part is over, and the wedding planning is up to your bride!

OROGOLD on Engagement Trends: Surprise Photography – ORO GOLD Reviews

Young couple getting engaged is photographed by a photographerThe latest thing in marriage proposals is surprise photography to capture the moment. Having a photographer or videographer on hand is a thoughtful and increasingly popular method of adding to the element of surprise. Though you could employ a close friend of family member to film the occasion, professional photographers generally charge a reasonable fee for this short session. Hiring a professional is the best way to make sure your photos or video are top-notch and easy to share with friends and family. There’s nothing quite like capturing the look on her face when presented with a diamond ring!

There are several factors to consider when trying to plan a surprise photography proposal. First you have to make sure this is something both you and your fiancé-to-be are comfortable with. Some people just don’t love being in front of the camera! It’s also important that you have a Plan B in place because let’s face it, if you really want to pull off a great surprise, things don’t always go as planned unless you spill the beans. You should also decide exactly how much of this intimate moment you would like documented. There may be a second here or there that should be reserved for just the two of you. The biggest factor in planning a surprise photography proposal is coordinating with the photographer- have your signals, and make sure the timing is set.

Before you hire a photographer or videographer, take some time to really think about your partner, and how she would react to being in front of the camera with no warning. Even if she’s outgoing and adventurous, it can still be a shock when a lady has no time to prepare. A great way to keep the element of surprise and let her be prepared is to offer another excuse for the photo shoot. If it’s nearing the holiday season, say you’d like to have some nice photos taken for holiday cards. This reason shouldn’t raise much suspicion, and allows your fiancé-to-be the time to do her hair, makeup, and pick an outfit accordingly. If you can’t figure out a legitimate excuse to include your girlfriend in a photo shoot, locations like the beach or a park offer enough space for a photographer to hide-out unnoticed and even shoot from afar.

When you’re trying to plan an elaborate surprise, things usually do not go as planned. Be prepared to employ your back-up plan, whether it be location, timing, or people involved. Make sure you know exactly where you’re going to stash the engagement ring so she doesn’t find it, and how you’re going to get it from that spot. Go over your back-up plans with your photographer or videographer before the fact, so that if something goes awry, you’re both on the same page. This will help you keep your cool and not ruin the surprise. If you don’t plan to let her in on the shoot, sneak a small bag with a mirror, extra outfit, hair brush, and any other essentials into your car a day before. This will give her a chance to touch-up hair or make-up for the rest of the shoot after you propose.

Another detail you’ll have to figure out in conjunction with your photographer or videographer is how much you would like documented on film. If you plan to say something that you would like kept private, just let your photographer know, and work it into your overall timing. Whether you’d like a second before or after you actually pop the question, make sure your photographer knows when to stop shooting and give you the time alone.

Now comes the hard part- working out all of the timing and cues with your photographer! This is especially vital if you plan to keep the entire photo or video shoot a secret from your partner. The surprise can easily be ruined if your photographer steps out of the shadows too soon, or too late. Verbal and body language cues are the best ways to signal to each other without being too conspicuous.  You don’t want to go through all of the planning only to miss the moment where you get down on one knee. This careful planning requires in-person meetings with your professional beforehand to make sure you’re both clear on the cues and timing.

Once you have all of your plans in place, the location, hired professional, back-up options, and timing, you’re almost ready! Make sure you have the engagement ring, and making notes for yourself never hurts. While executing a surprise engagement photo session can take a lot of time and planning, capturing her reaction on film will be something to treasure for a lifetime.
