Tips for the Bridesmaids' Accessories

However you want to look at it, the bride is the most important person on the wedding day, that's because it is 'her' day. The secret is however to allow the rest of the bridal party to not only look their best, but subtly enhance the look of the bride. This can be achieved in a manner of ways, but the most common one is by way of bridesmaids and the Maid of Honour (MOH). Each have the lovely task of being a bridal accessory in their own right. They are there to serve the needs of the bride and to complement and tie together the whole look of the bridal party.
So you've chosen the dress and you may have seen some gown designs and colours that catch your eye that would be suitable for the bridesmaids. Today it is ok to have your bridesmaids in different colours, this can be an eye catching alternative to the usual block colour and all bridesmaids with the same dresses although this is still very common. I attended a fabulous wedding where the bride wore deep scarlet red and the bridesmaids wore ivory cream tea style dresses. Controversial for some, especially Grandmother generations, but it looked fantastic, a real unique look for a unique bride!
All dressed in white
If you, the bride is dressed in white, cream or ivory tones then anything goes with regards to the bridesmaid gowns except of course white, cream or ivory unless the tone is noticeably different to the bridal gown.
An excellent way of keeping costs down is to work with the season! This is especially good for the photographer as he/she will be able to use nature at that time of year to enhance and complement the theme the bride has chosen. This also works out best regarding bouquets and flower arrangements as the costs can be dramatically different depending on what is or isn't available at the time of year. It goes without saying that the colour theme is a very personal choice and will run through the entire day right from the invitations down to the jewellery the bride will wear. I've seen fabulous weddings where each bridesmaid is wearing a different shade of blue for example or another where each bridesmaid is wearing a totally different style of dress but all in the same colour. It is good to have some continuity though whether that be in the jewellery, the bouquets or posies, bright shoes, headdress or some matching accessory like a shawl or bolero; but it all comes down to the bride's personal choice!
The Colour of the Bridal Gown
It may be that you've chosen a bridal gown that is a deep gold hue or a more vivacious red. Some gowns have highlights of colour whether that be in Swarvoski or crystal embellishments down the boddice through to the train. It is perhaps easy to have this highlight colour as your main colour theme which is a great idea but be aware of the bridesmaid's own colouring i.e. hair colour and skin tone as you don't want any clashes to jump out of the photographs at you. For subtelty and hints of colour, Swarvoskis of pretty much any colour can be added to either the bridesmaids' posies or can be stitched on to matching boleros. A great way of keeping consistency is to have matching jewellery for the bridesmaids, this can be an elegant pendant, earrings and cuff or if your bridesmaids are younger, a keepsake locket and cuff would be a perfect way to tie a look together. As for the MOH it is a good idea to differentiate this role from the bridesmaids, this need only be in a small way, but perhaps an added spray to her headdress or slightly larger posy would suffice in making this obvious.
Jewellery for the Bridesmaids
There are some great companies out there that offer super value for money on accessories for both bride and bridesmaid. A lovely option is to use semi-precious stones that match your colour theme and have jewellery made for each bridesmaid. This needn't be as costly as you may first think, it is well worth giving a company your budget and seeing what they can come up with for that amount. You may be surprised what you can get for your money! A lovely idea is to have vintage inspired keepsakes made for your bridesmaids, for example there are companies out there that source vintage brooches and incorporate these into a headdress and these can then be taken off after the wedding and used as a piece of jewellery. If your bridesmaids are wearing a headdress, then depending upon the hair style and ages of the bridesmaids, earrings and a pendant are always a good option. You can also have items of jewellery made in the same style as your own but with a little less in the way of amount of pearls, crystals or stones used.
Mother of the Bride Jewellery
This can be an extremely emotional time for the mother of the bride. The bride herself may have not lived at home for quite some time prior to her wedding day, but nevertheless, the occasion in itself can hold a mixture of feelings. The Mother of the Bride's outfit should fittingly be something special, some choose a very tailored, smart two piece whilst others go for a floaty dress with a tailored jacket that can then be used again for special occasions after the wedding day. Whatever decision is made the jewellery is of personal choice to the Mother of the Bride. It may be that there are certain special pieces that are saved for occasions such as this, family heirlooms etc. If however new jewellery is to be bought, there are companies that can offer a full jewellery suite that caters for all members of the party. A lovely quirky idea at the moment is to enhance the Mother of the Bride's corsage. This can be done by adding semi-precious stones that complement the colour theme of the day along with pearls and crystals to make a corsage twist that will make the Mother of the Bride stand out! When these twists are wrapped around the flower corsage for example a blush pink rose, fresh water pearls and Swarvoski crystals wrapping around make such a statement piece and something that can be taken off and cherished after the big day.
This can be done too for any of the corsages that the bridal party will be wearing and are lovely keepsakes of your special day.
Whatever accessories you choose we are sure you will all sparkle just like you deserve to! Please see our next article - Tips for Fabulous Table Settings!
Why not allow Heirlooms Ever After to sort your complete bridal jewellery suite! All you need to do is give us your budget, colour theme and leave the rest to us.

Tubal Reversal - Is It The Right Answer?

Often when a couple wants to have a child following a tubal ligation they will be told they should look into IVF or in vitro fertilization. But, the question is why are they told this? Couples ask if there is any other option and they are told not really other than adoption. This is not the case and many couples have used another option that is not as widely known about as IVF.
The procedure many couples are using is what is known as tubal reversal surgery. This surgery has been used by thousands of couples all over the world and the demand is growing. What tubal reversal is actually quite easy to understand. When the tubal ligation is performed the fallopian tubes are somehow blocked. The blockage can be performed by using clips, rings, cutting the fallopian tubes and even using a method where they are burned. What happens in tubal reversal surgery is that the surgeon literally repairs the fallopian tubes. Although the fallopian tubes will not be exactly the way before the tubal ligation they are returned to "working order". This then makes it possible for the egg and sperm to meet and result in conception. Tubal reversal surgery is a much more natural way to conceive and it is also a lot less expensive than the alternative treatment of IVF. The leading tubal reversal center located in the United States charges about $7000.
Tubal ligation reversal surgery is also much easier on the woman's body. There is the initial surgery but after the healing time all is complete. With IVF, there are multiple medications and procedures that have to be performed. Many women need to take time out of work over the course of the procedures. With tubal reversal surgery most are able to return to work within a couple of weeks.
There are a few factors that will need to be considered when researching the surgery. The first is the type of tubal ligation that was originally performed and the age of the woman at the time of reversal. If the fallopian tubes have not been completely damaged then reversal is certainly possible. As to the age of the woman it is quite clear that the older the woman is the harder it may be to become pregnant. As long as a woman is ovulating and having menstrual cycles regularly she is still considered to be fertile. There are many women in their 40's and over having children following reversal ligation surgery.
The experience of the surgeon should also be considered a big decision factor. The more experience the surgeon has the better the outcome of the repair. There are surgeons in the repair field that will not attempt to fix the ligations that have more damage. The surgeons with more experience have probably already performed this type of repair and have a better success rate. When looking for the right surgeon be sure to ask about their statistics. Do not be afraid to ask where there statistics come from. This is so crucial to picking the best surgeon to perform the surgery.

Three Steps to Being an Adventurous Shopper

You are out with your girlfriends and it is time for lunch. Where do you go? There are lots of cafes to choose from. Will it be ethnic, organic or the café in the bookshop? In the end, you usually choose the tried and true café where you know what to expect. The lunch is nothing special.
How often do you do something similar when it comes to choosing where to buy your clothes? Back to the tried and true, usually a retail or chain store most of the time. You get clothes that look okay yet you feel that your wardrobe is full and you have nothing that you really want to wear.
It is time to become more adventurous.
Like cafes, there are dress shops everywhere. It is time to play and explore. Most of the advice in magazines is about tried and true classics or they highlight the trend of the season. The slightly different clothes that add excitement and personality to your wardrobe are often found in small, secret places.
Here are my three modern dressing tips for business and professional women over 40 to make your adventurous shopping easier.
Step 1 - Explore Your Local Suburb and the Neighbouring Ones
It is easier, closer and hidden gems are often right under your nose. Remember the feeling of excitement when you found a new coffee shop that had just opened in your local area? It is not long before you go in and taste what they offer. You cannot walk in and out. You have got to stop, have a coffee and cake and then decide if you will return.
So it is with the little dress shops in your neighbourhood. Pick a street or shopping centre to explore. Check out the ads in your local paper and make a list of new shops to visit. Stop at that dress shop you have always driven past because you have pre-judged it by its name or its location. Be daring and ask a well-dressed local where she shops.
Step 2 - Get to Know the Owner or Saleswoman
It i time to face your fear of being talked into something expensive you do not really want. Take a friend if it makes you feel safer.
Go exploring with a goal in mind - either to find a certain item of clothing or to find a new shop that stocks clothes for your work, lifestyle and personality. You are looking for a shop that also gives great service. You are over 40 and old enough to speak plainly. Age has its benefits.
Tell the saleswoman why you are there. A good saleswoman cannot help you if you do not know who you are and what suits you and your whole lifestyle. You want someone who will only suggest small changes to develop your unique style. Walk away from someone who wants you to make a radical change. She has not made a real effort to listen and understand you. If you feel comfortable with this person and you get a gut feeling that you can trust her, you will be more open to suggestions about new styles and colours to try on.
Step 3 - Expect Some Failures
Not every new coffee shop meets your expectations. You move on without feeling guilty. So it will be with exploring new dress shops. There will be some successes and some failures.
You will have to walk away from some shops. Say thank you and then politely tell them why that shop is not for you (be it the clothes or the service). Be a mature adult rather than a scared child afraid to speak your truth.
Staying with the tried and true is doing the same and expecting different results. Being a little more adventurous is about finding a new dress mentor who helps you become a more definable and shining you. Together you both enjoy sharing the adventure.

Fashion - Here Today, Gone Tomorrow or Sticking Around

Help! You scream as the change of another season comes and there is the newspaper headline - Real Trends for Real Women - and it has the top 10 trends for the coming season. Only 10, you think sarcastically. You read on and there is an eleventh one in there as well as five more fashion trends in another article in the newspaper supplement.
No wonder you are confused about what to buy to feel modern and look good without converting your spare bedroom into a giant walk-in wardrobe.
Here is my no-nonsense guide to help business and professional women over 40 interpret new season fashion trends.
Do Not Believe All the Words
These types of articles often tell us to forget fads and unwearable runway trends. Ten seems to be a favourite number. So off they go to find examples of how to interpret their chosen trends for the coming season. Sounds helpful but in order to get ten of them they mix trends with fads and classics.
A fad is a short-lived, one-season fashion or colour that suits only a limited number of women. It is definitely aimed at the young and slim or women who can wear that season's particular colour.
A trend is a fashion or colour that looks good on most women and stays around for one to three years. It changes from a fad to a trend in its second year.
When a fashion suits every woman and can be interpreted in many different variations, it becomes a modern classic like crossover styles. These are the modern dressing skills that every business and professional woman needs to learn.
Fashion writers prefer to call most fashion ideas trends rather than fads because women will buy a trend. We convince ourselves that it is a good financial buy because everyone is wearing it. When someone close to you asks you why on earth you bought that, you can reply that you will get lots of wear out of it as it is a modern and trendy.
Go Beyond the Hype
When you see and read these articles, be critical and go beyond the hype. If there is a colour of the season eg gold, it is because gold is a colour that those with warm colouring can wear well. Choose carefully - gold skinny jeans are a fad whilst gold accessories are a classic look that suits most women.
Ask yourself these two questions. Will I be happy wearing this next year and the year after? Are the women whose fashion sense I admire wearing this?' If you can answer yes, to both questions, buy them. If you answer no, put them back. Life is too short to waste money on clothes with no real value. You want versatility so you can wear the new item with a number of other clothes currently in your wardrobe.
Find the Real Treasures
The real fashion treasures are not fads or trends. They are modern classics or old classics worn in modern ways. This is where you learn and apply modern dressing skills to your professional and business dressing.
An often overlooked classic is the Trench Coat. If you do not own one, look for one in a colour other than black that will go over your dresses or skirts/pants and tops. A red or beige trench coat will look smart for years and years. Wear your old or new trench coat with a narrow or medium width matching or contrasting-coloured leather belt as an alternative to the cloth belt that comes with the coat.
Sheer material jackets are also a modern classic. They can be interpreted differently for various seasons. The material adds interesting texture, it allows the colours underneath to shine in a new light and it covers but does not completely hide your arms - good for those worried about saggy arms and wrinkles.
By all means, read and look at any article on each season's top trends. Do not believe all the words. Go beyond the hype. Find the real treasures. Let your real personality shine.

The New Slimmer Me - Who Is She?

You have made the decision, stopped the excuses and faced your embarrassment. You have dropped weight and are well on your way to your target goal weight.
Suddenly you are scared. Who is this new woman who is emerging from under the protective layers of weight? There is less of you weight-wise but more of you emotional-wise that is being exposed. With less weight, people notice and compliment you more. How is the new you going to dress?
Dropping weight means changing your mindset and your dressing habits. Here are three smart dressing tips to help you dress for the new confident you.
Your Covering Changes not Your Basic Body Shape
Many women believe that when they drop weight, they change from a large, rounded apple shape to an hourglass shape. That is not true.
Your basic body shape is determined by your bones and the width of your shoulders. These do not change. Only your covering over them is changing. As you drop weight, your true body shape will become obvious and more defined. Now is the time to become excited about who you really are.
Look at your shoulder, waist and hip width in the mirror. If all three are the same width, you are rectangular. If your shoulders are the widest, you are inverted triangle. If your hips are the widest, you are pear-shaped. If your shoulders and hips are virtually equal and your waist is smaller, you are hour-glass. If your waist is the widest, you are an apple shape.
Read articles and books on body shapes and how to dress for yours or book a consultation with an Image Consultant.
Styles that Work for all Body Shapes
Crossover tops and jackets are great for changing body shapes. Choose ones with ties so that you can wrap them tighter as you drop dress sizes. Retailers, pattern books and some party plan clothing companies have wrap jackets that can be worn many different ways. This is a money-saving option to expand your wardrobe and look fashionable while continuing to lose weight.
Modern wrap dresses and classic shift dresses suit every woman. Wear one with a self-tie or belt and you can bring it in a few sizes as you slim down. Tops, shirts and dresses with a princess line from the shoulder flatter all body shapes. Take the side seams in as you get smaller. Do not safety-pin side seams. That is sending a negative message to your mind and body.
Clothes that skim your body make you feel good about yourself.
Quality or Cheap & Cheerful
It is your call. Both do the job. You can go to shops that sell classic styles in good quality fabrics at a reasonable price. If necessary, have them altered to fit. Alternatively go to a discount store, outlet centre or boutique stores that have cheaper, fashionable clothes. Try the second-chance or charity shops. It is not about the price. It is how you wear it.
Do buy new clothes and new underwear. Waiting until you reach your magic goal weight is denying yourself the pleasure of the journey. Tell yourself you are worth the effort and the cost of looking nice whatever your weight and size.
Magic Tip:
Raise your skirts and show some leg. Best skirt length is just below the knee. Second best is just below the widest part of your calf. Add nice shoes. People will love the new you because you are doing what many women over 40 are scared to do. You are showing your legs.
Discover the new you as you make dropping weight an exciting journey not a punishing chore.

Are Plunging Necklines Worth It?

Rules are meant to be broken - especially by the young for whom most fashion is created.
Today many young women, and I am including those up to the age of 40, seem to be happy wearing plunging necklines for everyday wear. What happens if you want to look smart but for whatever reason, you do not feel comfortable wearing a plunging neckline? What do you do?
Here are three modern dressing tips for business and professional women over 40 so that you do not have to miss out on wearing some lovely modern fashions. These dressing tips can also apply to girls and women of any age who feel that the plunge is not for you.
Wear a Cami or Singlet Top Underneath
If you find a dress or top that plunges past your comfort point, consider buying or wearing a smooth-fitting cami or singlet top underneath. Both of these look smart and you can match, blend or contrast with the colour or pattern to your dress, skirt, pants or jeans. A fitted cami gives you the modesty you want. Make sure that the cami or singlet covers just the top of your bust. One that ends close to your collarbone looks old-fashioned.
If you prefer a cami to a singlet top, ignore those that have stretch straps as these do not hold the cami firmly in place. The cami can slip over time and you are back to revealing more of the plunge than you may prefer. This can attract unwanted comments from some men, especially if you are short like me. Yes, I learnt that lesson from experience. Stretch camis with built-in bras are a better alternative. If you want good support, wear a proper bra under these camis. As long as no one will see your bra straps, it does not matter.
I am not a fan of lace-top camis for a professional or business look as I believe they come across as either too casual or too sexual for a professional situation.
Be careful of beige and skin-toned camis or singlet tops as your neckline will still look plunging from a distance. Beige and skin-toned camis are great to wear under normal white tops, blouses or shirts when you do not want your bra to be visible.
Wear a Strapless Cami or Boob Tube Underneath
Some women wear boob tubes or strapless camis under revealing V necklines and low sleeveless underarms. You see the cami at your bustline, under your arms and across your back. Try them to see if you feel comfortable wearing them. If you have to keep hitching them up, do not buy them.
Ignore Plunging Necklines
Sometimes you just have to say - it is lovely but not for me. Even when you were young you rejected some fashion styles as not you. Be prepared to reject some plunging neckline styles and go look for something else.
Modest flattering swimwear can often be hard to find. One-piece swimwear and bikinis plunge a lot. Check out one-shouldered designs or swimwear with sheer front inserts that give a veiled glimpse of a plunge rather than an obvious view.
Bonus Tip
Try a classy back neckline plunge for one outfit only. The depth of the plunge is your choice, depending on whether you are wearing the top or dress in a professional, casual or night-time situation. A plunging back is unusual enough to be stylish, individual and timeless.
Rules are meant to be broken with style by smart women. Good quality camis and singlet tops can be very versatile fashion items. Let your personality shine as you turn plunging necklines into modern business dressing.

How to Look Younger

The search for eternal youth is a never ending quest. This is also why almost every 'revolutionary' product in the market that promises youthful appearance is lapped up eagerly by people. In the area of skin aging, wrinkles are the biggest enemy of a radiant, youthful appearance. When the collagen levels of the skin decrease with age or due to sun exposure, the skin loses its elasticity which results in wrinkles or premature aging. Even though home remedies such as the use of milk, honey, egg whites and honey may result in the skin looking smooth and wrinkle free temporarily, these home remedies fail to provide a long-lasting solution to wrinkles.
In several cases, non surgical or minimally invasive methods of removing wrinkles may provide very good results. One of the most common, and widely popular, methods of removing wrinkles is Botox. Botox injections are usually administered to the forehead or around the eye area and help to freeze the muscles, thus reducing wrinkles. The injections have to be repeated after every few months and are not known to cause any side effects.
The other popular and non invasive method of reducing wrinkles is the use of dermal fillers. In this treatment, dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Thermage are injected in the skin to augment the skin tissues in the wrinkle prone areas. So, they can be used to remove fine lines or wrinkles around eyes, mouth, forehead and chin. The results of dermal fillers last longer than botox injections. Since these dermal fillers are natural components of the skin, they cause no side effects.
Laser treatments, chemical peels and Threadlifts are the other popular methods that work wonders for wrinkle removal. Threadlifts involve the use of thin threads or sutures that are placed under the skin and tightened over a period of time to lift and pull the skin to give a smooth, wrinkle free appearance. Threadlifts are performed with the use of local anesthesia. Laser treatments involve the use of laser beams that penetrate the skin and remove the damaged skin cells and facilitate the replacement of the old skin with fresh skin. Chemical peels work on the same principle. They are applied on the skin to remove the old, damaged skin so that natural, fresh skin can take its place. The peels remove the outer layer of the skin and the healing process takes a few days.
However, for people who have deep wrinkles that do not respond to home remedies or non-surgical methods of removing wrinkles, the best options are the surgical means, or face lifts. Face lifts are performed under anesthesia and require admission to the hospital. The procedure provides long-lasting results. Under this surgical procedure, the sagging skin of the face or neck is removed, the facial muscles are tightened and the face contour is improved. Surgery may also be performed to lift the brow, sagging eyebrows and droopy eyelids.
As a candidate for any of the wrinkle removing procedures mentioned above, it is necessary to be introspective of one's own aesthetic goals. Sometimes, it may be possible to reach the goal with a less invasive procedure, while at other times one may need to combine face lift surgery with a neck lift or a brow lift to achieve the 'perfect' look.

Choosing An Infertility Center

When a couple is faced with an infertility problem the emotional weight they carry can be devastating. The emotional distress can cause doubt on every decision made including when it's time to turn to an infertility center for more extensive and costly infertility treatment. Researching medical journals or on the Internet will reveal 10 or more large institutions located in major cities.
Now before thinking you have to visit a well known infertility center you really want to take a look at what is offered in your hometown or nearest large city. Your 'local' infertility center may have the solution to your particular infertility issue and this will remove the added stress of travel and lodging which will take time away from work as well as add to the expense of the whole procedure.
Even before you think you need In Vitro Fertilization, or 'IVF" as it is known, make sure you have explored more common options such as various fertility medications, inter-uterine insemination where sperm is placed directly in the woman's uterus as well as alternative methods such as acupuncture.
In-Vitro Fertilization procedures can cost as much as $35,000 so if you are not able to really afford that and can spend 6 months or so trying various alternative methods it can literally pay off in a relatively short period of time then you'll have that extra cash to go towards baby expenses or start that college fund.
When you actually visit an infertility center remember that you are going there to see if they are the right fit for you and your situation. Make sure they are very clear when discussing which procedures and any other work they are going to do and you will want this in writing so you can avoid any unpleasant surprises later on.
Checking ahead of time with your insurance agent regarding the tests and procedures the center will perform is important so you know what your insurance company will cover and exactly what you can expect to pay out of pocket.
If the infertility center outsources certain tests or other types of lab work make sure you know which lab will be doing the work so you don't get any surprises a few months down the road. The percentage of multiple births is also an important factor. While twins can be a cause for joyous celebration you will have two babies to care for at the same time.
Triplets will obviously be a lot more work than a single baby. There is also the cost of raising a child in dollars and cents. If you suddenly find yourself pregnant with triplets the pregnancy can be more difficult and then there is the work load and cost of raising three babies simultaneously.
When you are dealing with an infertility problem it can be very personal and you might feel intimidated at times but you need to force yourself past that and ask any and all questions you have no matter how 'stupid' they might seem. You need to know!
One other problem you might have is when you are questioning an infertility center they might not be totally forthcoming when giving you answers. An infertility center is a business just like any other and is expected to return as high a profit as possible.
You can ask about similar couples with the same issue you are facing and what the success rate is and you can also ask to speak with the staff of the infertility center and while they are obviously not going to say anything bad about where they work you can get a 'feel' for them.
Despite the emotional roller coaster you may find yourself on you need to stay calm and make the best decision possible.

Tubal Ligation Reversal And Having Tubes Reversed

For the woman who regrets having her tubes tied it may seem like the biggest mistake she has ever made. When she speaks with her physician she is told that she and her partner will have to look into IVF. Yes, IVF may have helped many couples but it is also very expensive. The only way they would be able to afford it is to take out a loan or a second mortgage on their home. This is not even a feasible option. Although many couples are able to afford the alternative it is just impossible for some.
There is another solution for couples that would like to have a child after a tubal ligation. It is called tubal ligation reversal. In this surgery the fallopian tubes are repaired or put back together. This is a surgery that can be performed as an outpatient procedure and can cost as little as $6000.00. There are surgeons that specialize in just this type of surgery. The surgery itself, if performed as an outpatient procedure, usually takes about an hour. The recovery time for most patients is about two weeks. Many women are able to return to their jobs after a week as long as there is no heavy lifting.
There are a few things that should be taken in account when a couple is researching their options. The first is the type of tubal ligation that was performed. The more damage that was completed the tougher the repair surgery. The second factor is the couples age at the time of the ligation reversal. As women get older the fertility rate drops. As the rate drops it can take longer to become pregnant. Many women who are approaching the age of forty will begin to get nervous about this. A couple of things to keep in mind if you are one of these women. The first is that there are many women who become pregnant after the age of forty and have successful pregnancies and healthy babies. The second is that there are tests that can be performed to test both the quantity and quality of the eggs.
Tubal reversal surgery is also the most natural way to have a child following a tubal ligation. Once the reversal is performed and the healing is completed the couple is then able to begin trying to conceive each cycle. There is no added medical intervention that will be needed unless there is a problem further off in the future. This is one of the main reasons why couples choose this procedure. There is no missed time out of work due to repeated procedures. The healing time takes about two weeks for most women. There is a time period after the fact where there should be no heavy lifting but most are pain free in about a week.
Having the procedure performed as an outpatient procedure means that there is less time away from loved ones. Many tubal reversal moms already have children at home that they do not want to leave for too long. By having the reversal performed as an outpatient procedure the surgery takes about an hour. The patient is then able to go back to a hotel and rest following the surgery. The following morning a tubal reversal nurse or surgeon will come by to check on the patient. Once the nurse or doctor has done examining the patient she is able to leave with her partner. Once the healing is complete then the couple is then able to begin trying to become pregnant.

Unfailing Love: A Deeper Look Into the Story of Hosea

Marry a whore. Keep her as your wife. She will betray you continuously, but you must love her and never leave her. You will be rejected continuously. You will be seen as a fool. Your life will be painful. Your reputation challenged. You will need to trust me. You will need to depend on me. You will always need to forgive, always show unconditional love, and always remain faithful in spite of your feelings of betrayal.
Who would ask such a thing? ---God did-of the prophet Hosea. Why? He likes using the dramatic to drive home a point. God uses real-life people like you and me to demonstrate the commonality of our struggle. But the purpose of this story illustrates something profoundly deeper. God is telling us the story of his heart here. By using the sanctity of the marriage bed, and its defilement-- something he knew we could understand-- he shows us something of his pain regarding the betrayal of the children of Israel. Did you catch the part about Hosea loving his wife and never leaving her? Close your eyes for a moment and freeze-frame that scene. You've discovered your spouse has been unfaithful. Not once but dozens of times. This is a person you thought you knew. This is a person you trusted. The truth has seared your soul like a hot iron. Every part of your being cries for justice. Hurt outweighs reason. What should you do?
Now, think about the worst betrayal you have experienced. Close your eyes for a moment and recall the pain. Now imagine you have to experience that pain every day for the rest of your life. And you have to do it with love. By now, most of you are probably thinking, "No way! I wouldn't do it. I couldn't do it. But that's what God does. You may be thinking, Ok, but he's God he's supposed to love unconditionally. You're right. And he does. Over and over he demonstrates his faithfulness to us in spite of our rebellion, just as he did with Israel. He does it to paint a picture of his heart toward you and me. Don't get me wrong-he was angry at Israel's betrayal and continual idolatry. But consider this: here in this story, as always, mercy is remembered in the midst of wrath. Rejection of his children is not an option. God never leaves for a better offer. His love is unfailing and his mercies are new every morning.
The story of Hosea provides a powerful window into the heart of God and how his heart breaks over our constant infidelity and wandering. While this story is symbolic of God's relationship to Israel, it is nonetheless applicable to each and every child God has loved and desired intimacy with. I believe God's heart is saddened under the weight of our lack of faith and trust in his goodness. I believe he is disappointed that we often choose not to see the love of his heart toward us. And just as he lamented over Jerusalem in Luke 13:34, I think his heart is broken at how quickly we forget him to chase after another. So consider this; God wants to show us that even though we whore after other things, even though we don't trust him, even though we rage at him and blame him for our plight-just as the children of Israel did-he waits patiently for us, constantly showing us the mercy and compassion of his heart.
So, the next time you're tempted to believe no one understands your pain-- remember the story of Hosea-- and how God demonstrates his faithfulness to us in spite of our wandering hearts.

How To Try On A Bra To Find the Correct Size

When trying on a bra which hooks should I use?
A common question from the ladies in the fitting room, some people have told them this others that, and from the point of view of buying lingerie you need to know the correct way to avoid wasting money on bras that you won't be able to wear in a month.
The answer can depend on your age or whether you are pregnant.
A teenager is still growing and their chest size and ribcage is likely to expand, in some cases at tremendous rates. This means that a young woman up until she has stopped growing should be fitted with bras on the tightest hooks. Then as she grows the hooks can be loosened. This is important so as not to restrict a growing body or apply unnecessary pressure which can cause long term marks or bruising.
By your state, I am referring to whether you are pregnant and expecting, this is the only time in a woman's life after adolescence that you should also try on a bra to the tightest hooks. This is to ensure that as your bump expands the pressure can be relieved by loosening the hooks.
The most common fitting, therefore, should always be done on the loosest of hooks. Most bras have three sets, although some larger cups may have four to give extra room for adjustment. When trying a bra you start with the loosest, then as you wash and wear your bra, elastic weakens. To secure the same fit from when the bra was new you will need to use tighter hooks, giving you an inch and a half to pull the bra in during aging.
So there you have it, simply to get the most life out of a bra purchase when you have the perfect fit on the loosest hooks and use the tighter hooks as the bra ages.
Of course there are always exceptions and anomalies, two exceptions mentioned here (pregnancy and teenage years), there are two other exceptional circumstances where you may be advised to fit to the middle or tightest hooks. Some ladies maybe between bra sizes, this means if it is too tight on the bra size below (causing excessive discomfort and marks) you may purchase the next size up wearing the bra on the middle hooks will give you an extra inch, meanwhile the tightest hooks will give you an extra half an inch from the size below. Where possible it is always advisable to go for the tightest band size comfortable, as this is where the support is provided, as your breasts weight are balanced in your core. After wearing a loose, old or larger sized bra for sometime the correct size will naturally feel firm at first, you are likely to adjust to this and always remember with washing and wearing the bra will loosen.
The only other situation where a woman may need to purchase on the tightest hooks is where you are petite size where availability is scarce, 26 backs for example. Unfortunately brands tend to go where the largest market rests, that being if you are lucky enough to be petite then you are likely to struggle to find high quality lingerie. This means that you may be forced to buy bras measured to the tightest hooks.

Essential Tools for the Amateur Jewellery Maker

As Jewellery makers, one of the most common decisions we face is whether or not to buy more tools. If so, which ones? Often the choice comes down to "Should I buy another tool or should I buy more material?" For those relatively new to jewellery making, it's an especially daunting question and without proper guidance it can be a costly one as well.
To learn anything new we need three things; tools, materials, and instruction. This trinity is the foundation for developing any kind of skill or ability. Knowing we need some of each to get started, how do we know which, what, when and why? We could buy tools endlessly and still never have all of them.
I find it's better to buy fewer tools and more materials. It's not only the wisest approach to long-term development; it's also the best investment strategy for getting started.
It actually doesn't take many tools to make handmade jewellery. Most aspiring jewellery makers start off buying more tolls than they need. Often they are encouraged by tool makers and vendors that they must have a certain tool to make jewellery. They might also be influenced by others who have more tools than they know what to do with, and definitely have more than they need.
So, where to begin? First we have to have an idea of what we want to do. Let's assume that we want to learn to make jewellery by fabrication directly with metal. The best place to start is with solid foundation skills: forging, forming, bending, sawing, piercing, filing, and cold construction. Just these techniques alone allow us to make jewellery endlessly. They are certainly sufficient to develop and refine our skills and to learn our material.
If you're just starting to explore metal, you don't yet know which techniques you like. Buying many specialised tools will financially confine you to a particular technique before you've decided if you like it. I would suggest beginning with the bare minimum of tools and buying additional tools only if you determine that you want to continue. This will be particularly true for tools used in making handmade rings.
There is an adage that you should always buy the best tool that you can afford. This is sound advice, but not in every situation. I suggest good quality for specific items, especially pliers, but sometimes an adequate is sufficient to get started. Buying economical tools where acceptable allows us to buy a few extra items, invest in more material, or pay for instruction.

What Women Talk About: Recipes, Perfume, And Decorating

There are so many different kinds of women out there, but I would say a majority of women like to talk about recipes, perfume, and decorating. Women are more in tuned with the needs of the home, and recipes and decorating both have to do with preparation of the home. Women are also very interested in beauty, so perfume is one of the hot topics spoken amongst women.
Women like to share recipes with each other. If they are getting bored of their own cooking, they will ask for a new recipe from a friend. A woman may also be interested in watching the Food Network channel on television. On this channel she can get recipes and it is easy to follow since the chef is making it all right in front of you on the television screen. You can also find many recipes on different websites on the internet. Some great recipes can be found on the internet, and also of course in recipe books.
Another topic spoken among women is perfume. Women like to feel beautiful and want to feel attractive to their husbands or prospective husbands. One type of perfume that will attract the opposite gender is Bvlgari perfume. Bvlgari perfume is unique among the world of perfume because it started out as a jewelry company. Today Bvlgari makes perfume that is both elegant and luxurious. The bottles are also works of art in themselves. You can find perfumes by Bvlgari such as Omnia Chrystalline, which has a very unique shaped bottle.
Finally, the last topic women most often talk about is decorating. Women like to keep their home in order, and they are also interested in fashion and style. I would say most women like to keep a clean and organized home. If you want to be artistic in your own home, decorating is a way to use that artistic ability. Some women may be more interested in decorating their bedroom, while others may think it is more fun to decorate their living room and kitchen. You can get good decorating ideas in many interior fashion magazines such as Interior Design, Dwell, and Elle.
Women have so many interests and talents just in the domestic world. However, women are also very interested and talented in areas beyond the home. Cooking and fashion seem to be a big interest among women, although some men may have interest in these areas as well.

Smart Women and Their Relationship With Money

Recently, I had the opportunity to spend the day strategizing with a group of smart women entrepreneurs from different parts of the world. It was an energizing day focused on topics such as effective marketing, clear messaging to attract your ideal client, time management and money.
At one point, women were expressing the challenges they face in getting everything accomplished each day including running a business, managing a family, and hopefully time to squeeze in a little self-care.
I shared with the group that when I'm in the office, I ask myself three questions to help me stay focused and directed on making money in my business:
1. Where is the potential for new business?
2. Are my private clients and groups experiencing award-winning results?
3. Have I reached out to my referral sources this week?
Discovering new business opportunities, creating award-winning client results and focusing on my relationships with referral sources are the very best ways to build a successful company for the long-term.
I noticed one woman in the group had a rather strange look on her face and at the break, I went up to her and asked if everything was OK. Her response? "I've never heard a woman speak so freely about making money. It's liberating for me. I love this idea!"
As I travel around the country and meet women from different parts of the globe, this idea that money should not be discussed is universal. I had one woman tell me that she was raised with a belief that "Money is evil." Money is not evil. What you do with the money is what matters.
This opened the door to a freeing, thought-provoking, conversation about why women need to overcome their fear of making money or having money. If your business is not making the money you desire, could it be possible it's due to the relationship you have with money? If your business is barely "surviving" instead of "thriving" I invite you to think about creative ways you can embrace what a positive cash flow could do not only for you but the world.
To ensure that your Big Idea comes to fruition and achieves growth year after year, it's essential that you make money in your business. I'd like to share some ideas about why women and money go together and energize your thinking about why it's key to stay focused on making money:
1. Contributing to the well-being of yourself and your family - It's an empowering feeling to know that your business contributes to taking care of those you love and care about. It builds confidence, self-esteem and instills the idea in your family that you are an equal partner in every area.
2. Contributing to the economy - I'm thrilled to be able to have a small team of women support me in my business and I can help them achieve their goal of working from home. I'm adding value to the flexibility and freedom in their lives.
3. Giving back - I hear from so many women the reason they started their business is because they want to give back to the charities and organizations they feel so strongly about. This has been an emotional driver for me. My desire to give back has continued to grow over the last 3 years and my dream has finally come true. This year, Smart Women Smart Solutions® is now able to make a donation to several non-profits that support women and girls worldwide from coaching programs purchased by women entrepreneurs.
I'm going to invite you to start the process of creating a consistent, positive cash flow so you can use the money to take care of what's important to you. Stop saying, "When I have the money, I will..." and start saying, "Now that my business is experiencing a positive cash flow, I will..."
Anything is possible. Everything is waiting for you.
