This entry was posted in News on by .

I thought I was going to be looking at apartments for a while. I was not about to settle for something again, and I did not care if it took me two weeks or two months to find the next place I would call home. I have settled too often in the past, and then I have lived with regret each time I did that. I was bound and determined to find the right apartment for me, and I did just that. The amazing thing is that it did not take me nearly as long as I thought it would. Continue reading

My Husband Taught Me About Another Way to Relax at Night

This entry was posted in News on by .

I usually lay in bed at night and read e-books. My husband, on the other hand, likes to play video games on his laptop in bed. He usually plays with the sound low, and I usually didn’t pay attention to what he was playing. But the other night I was tired of reading, and I looked over and saw him downloading a Forge of Empires diamond cheat to help him play a favorite game of his. I began to ask him questions, and then he handed me his laptop and asked me if I wanted to try to play. That sucked me in quickly, and now I can’t get enough of it!

It’s now kind of funny to think of me playing video games in bed at night. For the last 20 years I have always read before bed. Previously, I always read paperbacks or hardback books. As soon as tablets became widely available for reading digital books, I bought one. I have thousands of e-books. I can’t wait to read them every night. But learning how to play this game that my husband loves so much has taken me away from reading just a little bit. Continue reading

Vases – a History

This entry was posted in News on by .

The development of art has been considered as one of the hallmarks of human evolution. Not surprisingly, most of the artworks man has made have been created to adorn his home, be it painting, sculpture, pottery or photography.

Vases that are made of crystal and glass are just the same; they were made for the function of providing adornment to space. Man has been using techniques to make glass for vases and other adornments since the dawn of history, with the earliest evidences dating back to more than three thousand years ago, found in Mesopotamia.

The manufacturing techniques used for making crystal and glass vases as we know it today, however, were inherited from the Romans. Trading and commerce in the Roman Empire has made the use of crystal and glass vases popular among the citizenry, ranging from clear glass to colored crystal, and this prompted glassmakers to develop more sophisticated techniques for creating crystal and glass vases other than the basic core-form method of wrapping molten glass around a sand bag tied to a rod. Related manufacturing techniques created for more ornate and more beautiful crystal and glass vases are enameling, gliding and staining. The skill achieved by glassmakers during the Roman times is embodied in the world-famous Portland Vase, a vase made of violet-blue glass with seven white-glass cameo figures.

Unfortunately, just like most bodies of knowledge, many manufacturing techniques used for creating crystal and glass vases were lost and forgotten during the Middle Ages. The knowledge of glassmaking were thankfully kept and retained in the island of Murano, then in the Republic of Venice. Murano has a rich source of pure silica sand. The glassmakers of Murano learned how to mix silica sand with soda ash to create a superior form of glass used for vases and other adornments. The skill of Murano glassmakers gave Venice a monopoly on vases and adornments made from glass and crystal.

Today, the art of making crystal and glass vases are among those being preserved and perpetrated by glass artists. Among the major proponents in the development of this art are Harvey Littleton, founder of the American Studio Glass Movement, and Louis Comfort Tiffany, known for his handmade Favrile iridescent glass. Other well-known and influential glass artists are René Jules Lalique, Dale Patrick Chihuly and the Murano-born Lino Tagliapietra.

Prada Bags – What’s So Great About Them?

This entry was posted in News on by .

If you have bag sense, you probably have a Prada in your bag collection. That means you know just how great a Prada is. Some of us are new to Prada, but how about we all share about why Prada is one of the best bag labels you’ll ever buy?

Let me start with a little history. Prada is Italian. It was started by Mario Prada, a man who had a dream to turn leather into beautiful fashion accessories. In fact, his initial designs were great looking but were too heavy as they were made of walrus skin.

Soon, he refined his products so that they became lighter and he concentrated on making them water proof.

Before long, he was not only a household name in Italy but Europe as well. And the name has continued to hold itself high to this date, being almost the most reputable designer of handbags and leather accessories.

So what about Pradas is so special?

1. A Prada bag is elegance and quality all rolled into one. They are designed to look beautiful but do the job. They can literally be your every day bag for years and continue to perform great and still look stylish. Look at Prada travel bags – you know how badly bags get treated during plane travel, but Pradas always emerge looking as good as they went in.

2. If you want to know if a bag is quality, look at the stitching. Prada bags are handmade and therefore stitched with special thread that makes them that much more durable. You will not have burst seams or ripped linings with a Prada.

3. They are stylish – each Prada bag is designed by experts who put a lot of thought and creativity into them, taking into account not only the latest fashion trends but durability and quality as well.

4. Prada never goes out of style. You can have a Prada bag you bought 10 years ago that you can still carry around in confidence. Not many bags live that long. The reason for this is that they are not made to satisfy passing fashion whims but to look good on every woman while giving quality service.

5. Prada have bags for every occasion. It’s actually a one-stop shop for bags. Once you get into a Prada shop, you’ll get an everyday bag, your evening clutch, and your travel accessories all in one place. That makes it even more stylish – that you can have a different Prada bag for every occasion. Wow! How nice would that be?

6. Prada make their bags using the best quality materials – grade leather. Even the string that is used for stitching is not common industrial type thread. They get suppliers who understand their specifications to produce a great bag, and then go on to get the very best of materials to put their bags together. In fact, most Pradas are hand-made, with very little going into a machine.

So if you’ve made up your mind to get with a range of bags that will never let you down, I suggest Prada. To see where you can get great deals on original Prada bags, check out our site

Coach Bags – What’s So Great About Them?

This entry was posted in News on by .

If you’re a girl who loves to have some really cool, long lasting stuff in her wardrobe, then you probably own a Coach bag. But still, you may be a girl who loves cool, long lasting stuff and you don’t have one – yet. It’s time to go out and get yourself one. I’ll tell you why in a few moments, but first, who is Coach? We all know Gucci, YSL, DKNY and all the famous bag designers, but maybe not Coach.

Coach is a leading American designer of luxury goodies, all the way from handbags to purses to jewellery and sunglasses to shoes. They have been around for quite a while – a group of artisans came together in 1941 in Manhattan and founded a family run workshop that was based in their loft. Their unique selling point was to use the best leather possible, and they would treat it till they got it right. They are around to date, and this tells you that they must be producing some great stuff, right?

Anyway, back to why a Coach handbag is so cool?

1. They are made of simply the most beautiful leather. Coach bags have a hallmark – soft leather, and it’s not by fluke. It actually brings us to our second reason why Coach bags are so great:

2. The softer leather is, the longer it will last and the less it will show wear and tear. If you are a lover of things to keep, a Coach bag won’t let you down. They actually get better as they get older (that’s a mark of real fine leather). Even if you change your bags from time to time, you can be sure that when you clean out your wardrobes and get a new set of bags, whoever will get your Coach bag will get to put some mileage into it too.

3. Each Coach bag is made with great attention to detail. The artisans inspect each bag individually after it’s completed to make sure that only the best leaves the factory floors. This of course means that you will not find those unexpected faults after spending a few hundred dollars on a bag. There’s a quality control process that each bag must go through before it reaches a store, and of course they are returnable if you find something amiss (not that you are likely to).

4. The clutch, the zipper and all other bits on the bag are made of similarly tough stuff that will keep going for a long time. No zippers that don’t catch after a month or latches that just don’t sit. Depending on the bag you get, some of the latches are actually made of gold, or plated in gold. Now, that’s not something you see every day on a bag.

5. They are unisex – there’s a range of bags for him too, so you can get your other half something to make him stand out while you’re getting yourself one.

6. Coach bags offer great variety, style and color. They are made for all types of people and all types of occasions and they are designed to suit various body types; tall and full figured, tall and slim or even the right opposite. And the great variety and color selection means that you can have a different Coach bag for every occasion.

7. OK, finally, here’s the best thing about Coach Bags – they are affordable. A lot of designer bags go for thousands of dollars, even hundreds of thousands. You will get a good Coach for the $500-$1000 range that will give you the same service that any other designer bag would. So if you’re into a good bag, and want to save some money, a Coach is exactly the thing to get.

These really are a treasure in your bag collection. As with any other designer bags, there’ll be fake Coach Bags in some places you look. If you want to know whether or not you’re getting the real deal, check on the type of leather used and the kind of finishing. Originals are of the greatest quality. The leather will be soft and will have a subtle look. Do you want to get yourself a Coach Bag right now? Check out our site and get yourself a treasure!

How to Structure and Word Your Wedding Invitation

This entry was posted in News on by .

The wedding invitations are one of the most import stages of the preparations for the wedding day. They set the tone of the day and give your guests their first indication of the style and theme. They tell them when and where the wedding will be held and how formal it will be. For your guests the wedding invitations are the most important part in the lead up to your wedding. The importance of the wedding invitations or wedding stationery cannot be understated and getting the wedding stationery wording correct is crucial.

It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed, confused, or even unsure about which traditions to follow when selecting the layout and wording of your wedding invitations. Traditional invitation wording and etiquette serves only as a guide or a starting point. Your wedding stationery should capture your individual characters and convey the tone in which you wish to express your wedding day. There is no right or wrong.

Typically, a wedding invitation is divided into four distinct sections, i.e. the hosts, the guests, the date, time and location of the ceremony and reception. This article examines each of the sections contained in a standard wedding invitation and offers some guidance to the reader.

1. The hosts of the wedding

The hosts of the wedding can be the bride’s parents, the bride and groom, or the parents of both the bride and groom. It was tradition that the brides parents hosted the wedding, however nowadays the majority of couples host the wedding themselves often with the assistance of both sets of parents. There are a variety of different wording options depending on who is hosting. The following suggestions are offered as guidance.

If the Bride and Groom are hosting the wedding themselves, one of the following wording options maybe considered:

The honour of your presence is request at the marriage of…

Anne Smith and John James request the honour of your presence at their marriage…

Anne Smith and John James together with their families/parents wish to invite you, to join them on the occasion of their marriage…

Together with their families/parents Anne Smith and John James request the honour of your presence on the occasion of their marriage…

In the case where the bride and groom’s parents are hosting the wedding:

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

and

Mr. and Mrs. William James

request the pleasure of your company

at the marriage of their children…

Finally if it is the bride’s parents that are hosting the wedding then the following maybe used:

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

request the pleasure of your company

at the marriage of their daughter

Anne Smith to John James

It has always been the tradition that the bride’s name be mentioned first on the wedding invitation. This maybe explained by the fact that traditionally the bride’s parents paid for the wedding. It is not uncommon nowadays for the groom’s name to be mentioned first. Ultimately this is a personal choice and the decision of which name appears first resides with the bride and groom.

2. Addressing the guests – using their correct titles.

Addressing the wedding guests with their correct titles displays thought, consideration and respect. In today’s world a multitude of different titles exist which makes this task all the more difficult. The best course of action is to use common sense and be consistent, however it is not as simple as using Mr and Mrs on your wedding invitations. Some of your invitee’s may have different title’s. When addressing a husband and wife who share the same last name the norm is to use Mr and Mrs i.e. Mr and Mrs John Owens. Likewise if they don’t share the same last name, the norm is to address them as Mr John Owens and Mrs Sinead Flynn. If either of these guests is a Doctor then simply substitute Dr for Mr/Mrs. Separated or divorced couples should receive separate invitations and if they have a new partner, then the norm is to include this partners name. In the case of gay and lesbian couples the same rules apply but you should name the partners in alphabetical order. Finally, when inviting a single person who will be bringing a date it is appropriate to include “plus one” after their name.

3. Date, time and location

Traditionally on formal wedding invitations the numbers and time were spelled out e.g. “The fifteenth of April two thousand and fourteen at one thirty in the afternoon”. The design of your wedding theme will dictate whether the numbers in the date and time are spelled out or left in numeric form. With modern wedding invitations the latter is becoming the norm. The location of the wedding ceremony follows the date and can appear before the time. The reception location then follows. An example of typical date, time and location layouts could be:

St Oliver Plunket Church, Boora, Co. Offaly at 1:30 in the afternoon

Celebrations to follow at Dooley’s hotel Birr.

or

To be held at two thirty in the afternoon of Sunday the twelfth of January two thousand and fourteen at St. Finnian’s Church, Kinnitty, Co. Offaly

and afterwards at Kinnitty Castle for festive banquet and cheer

A typical wedding invitation is divided into the sections as outlined above, i.e. the hosts, the guests, date and time, and the locations of the ceremony and reception. It is also acceptable to include an RSVP contact number or email address on modern wedding invitations, or a separate RSVP card can be include as was traditional. If opting for the additional card ensure that the name of the guests and a stamp addressed envelope are included. An RSVP reply date of at least one month before the wedding should also be advised to your guests.

For your guests the wedding invitations are the most important part in the lead up to your wedding. The information they receive helps them decide on their outfits and allows them to make the necessary arrangements to attend. Many guests may have to travel a long distance and therefore it is appropriate to include directions and a list of accommodation. This is additional information which is not included on the wedding invitation but rather on a separate card included in the wedding stationery pack sent to the guests. The norm is to include a map and directions to both the venues for the ceremony and reception, and a list of accommodation including hotels and bed and breakfast providers.

So, You’re Thinking About a Double Wedding?

This entry was posted in News on by .

the cost of what are weddings, planning, and paying two weddings at the same time is more than most families can manage. Inevitably, someone will suggest, Hey-why not do a wedding double? Depending on the people involved, this can be a winning idea or a total disaster. These are the pros and cons of double weddings.

can have several significant advantages to shared weddings. The first is cost. Instead of paying to entertain members of the same family twice, why not save money doing all at the same time? We do not, however, expect that you can throw a wedding for two couples for the same price as a celebration for a couple. You definitely need a bigger local, and while you will only have food and beverage costs to the family of the bride once, the family of the bride and groom will have a list of guests to. And of course a larger place means more flowers, more linen rental and possibly even a band larger or more powerful sound system. Of course, there will be two wedding dresses and bridal jewelry sets as well. While a shared reception will not be half the price of the two parties only, still it can realistically save about 1/4 to 1/3 in two separate events, which will add up to thousands of dollars.

is not just the parents of brides who find a better value a double wedding. For members of the family town that would have been invited to both events, your costs will be reduced by half (except wedding gifts). His family not only save money, but also time. When two sisters are planning weddings that are together, is not only travel expenses that may be difficult, but that makes the time for two separate trips. Having an affair all-in-one will surely easier for loved ones to attend to. It will also prevent the possibility of hurt feelings when customers accept a sister’s wedding but reject the other because it is not possible for them to attend both.

of course, there may be some quite serious cons for a double wedding. Before committing to the concept of a common, consider wedding planning carefully how you and her sister see the world. The biggest problem is when the pair of sisters does not share the same vision of the perfect wedding. Both tend to like the same style of clothes, similar colors, the same kinds of places? They work well together, with a good balance of give and take, or there is a sister who always has to get their own way? If you are both now pointing to his sister, saying: ‘She!’, is likely to find accord plans wedding to be a rocky road! Also, be honest with yourself; If you want really long to be the center of attention on the day of your wedding, how does feel share the center of attention?

to the sisters that ultimately they decide to have a double wedding, there are some things that can help move more smoothly. Agreement on a vision unified for decoration and food, but each sister still show your individuality when it comes to the wedding dresses, jewelry and her bridesmaid outfit systems. It coordinates, but does not correspond. To disable the arguments, the older sister name goes first at the invitation and she exchanged vows in the first place. Work with your officiant to weave the two sets of vows in a ceremony the guests have to put two back to back complete ceremonies. Once at the front desk, a double wedding can result in a huge and wonderful, party so enjoy it to the fullest!
