How to Wear a Saree?0
North Indian Saree
A perfectly draped sari makes personality but a clumsily draped sari can equally bring down the look of the Sari and spoils the whole appearance of the woman. So just make a note on some basic steps about how to drape a sari in different styles.
1. A waist – to – floor length petticoat tied tightly at the waist by a drawstring.
2. A tight fitting blouse that ends just below the bust.
|After step one you take the sari and tuck the plain end of the sari into the petticoat for one complete turn from right to left. Make sure that the lower end of the sari touches the floor|
|Make about 7 to 10 pleats and hold them up together so that they fall straight and even.|
The end portion thus draped is the pallu, and can be prevented from slipping off by fixing it at the shoulder to the blouse with a small safety pin.
You are now draped in a saree . Now stand before the mirror and get enchanted by the grace you exude.

10 Fashion Tips for modern girls…0
So..here you are. I guess if you are on this page you are looking for something new. Something that has never been told or said before – let alone published on the web.
I’ll try to provide you with some novelty ideas….
If you know the people you are going to meet – like at a party, or the gettogether, you probably know about their dressing sense. Just give five minutes of thought to what you think they will be wearing and that will help you decide your best attire. Just do it different from what you think they will be doing.
Scarves on the move:
Scarves are a good piece of clothing that can make that lasting impression. Try it. Scarves are a great way to add a touch of color and fashion to any outfit, while pocket squares can bring a vibrant touch of color to tailored suits.
Color it (B)right:
Bright colors bring attention to an area – make sure you wear them wisely and only on your most flattering body parts.90% of looking your best is simply a choice of wearing the proper colors for your season. Your skin looks younger and healthier, eyes look brighter, teeth look whiter
Go for the short nail with the big impact. Snap up your fall look with glam metallics. Think of heavy metals infused with pigment and sheen like the patina of rich auto exteriors and you?ve nailed the right color for your next manicure.
Messy makeup lines can ruin your look! Blend, blend, blend and blend some more. This is the key to looking great.
There are days when you just can’t get the minute to fix your hair. And then, there are times when the nonchalant ponytail is just what makes an otherwise elaborate outfit look simple and polished. Try Ponytail, once in a while.
Skip Denim when everybody else won’t. If you are going to be at a place where most of the folks would come in a jeans, go for a dress. Make a statement.
Jewelry – You don’t have to invest a fortune for a great look. High quality costume jewelry is perfectly acceptable, except for rings, which should be real gold or silver. One in each hand please. Pearls and a quality watch are also excellent wardrobe investments.
Forget about sizes – Choose the clothing that fits you best. Choose misses or half sizes if they fit better. Too tight clothes only add on the pounds! Don’t wear anything that is too tight. Skirts should cover the knee; jackets should not strain with movement; armholes need to be large enough
Wear this even when you are not dressed up to your best, dont forget to wear your attitude. Above all that matters, Attitude matters alot.
Try these, and let me know how you feel….meanwhile, i will work on a few beauty tips for the Khoobsurat in you!
What to do with High Heels?1
Here are some tips for everyone who want to wear high heels.
1. “Change heel heights several times a day. Feet and legs shouldn’t be allowed to mold themselves to any one shoe shape.”
2. “Shoes are an emotional accessory; hurt your feet, hurt your feelings.”
3. “Befriend a salesperson who will tell you if a shoe will actually feel as good as it looks.”
4. “If you feel all the weight in the front of your foot, this heel’s your arch enemy — literally.”
5. “Your foot needs to ‘sit’ in a shoe. If you can wedge two fingers between your sole and the shoe — bye-bye!”
6. “Platforms should be no more than one-and-a-half inches high — or you’re dangling off a cliff.”
7. “Think Cinderella: A heeled shoe must fit perfectly. Faking it with the wrong size will get ugly.”
8. “Don’t shoe shop with swollen feet — e.g., when it’s hot or right after exercise.”
9. “To elongate your legs, ankle straps should sit above the ankle bone.”
10. “Still wobbling when you walk in your heels? Practice!”

Hair! Common Problems and Solutions0
Hair is one of the most integral part of a beautiful look. Without a well groomed hair, other grooming effort is only half useful. Lets see what are the common hair issues, and how can you solve them.
Longer hairs means greater problems here are some common mistakes you might be making with your hairs.
Always Fastening Your Ponytail in the Same Spot
Because strands tend to get caught — and broken — in bands, it’s a good idea to alternate the fastening point. “Move it up a half inch one day, then down the next,” says celebrity stylist Richard Marin. Using seamless elastic bands, like Goody Ouchless Elastics, will further minimize damage.
Combing Wet Hair from Roots to Ends
A comb is easier on fragile wet hair than a brush is, but tugging it from scalp to tips can cause breakage. First, smooth out knots with a leave-in detangler. Then, says Marin, start to comb at ends, working up in sections.
Brushing Your Hair for Shine
All you need is a few strokes to style hair and spread the natural oils from roots to ends. “Anything more than that is unnecessary friction, which can lead to breakage,” says Amy J. McMichael, M.D., an associate professor of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
Blow-Drying Hair That’s Dripping Wet
Not only will this make it difficult to style your hair, it will cause a ton of heat damage. “A blow dryer should be used on damp — not wet — hair for 20 minutes, tops,” says stylist Peter Coppola, creator of a QVC hair-care line. Before applying heat, wrap hair in a towel for five minutes, then let hair air-dry for another five.
Ignoring Your Scalp
To grow healthy hair, your scalp needs nourishment. “Massaging your head with your fingertips will stimulate blood flow,” says Christopher Mackin, a trichologist (hair expert) at the Gil Ferrer Salon, in New York City. For extra care, use a leave-in scalp treatment.
Using the Wrong Brush
The incorrect brush can not only ruin your style, it can get snagged in your hair. Generally, the longer your locks, the larger in diameter your brush should be (basically, more hair, more brush). To create volume, use a round brush; to smooth hair, a paddle shape is best.
Avoiding Hair Spray
It’s gotten a bad rap, but hair spray contains a polymer that actually locks out humidity, says Cheri McMaster, senior scientist for Pantene. And contrary to popular belief, it’s not harmful. “It’s the polymer, not the alcohol, that dries on your hair,” she says. “The alcohol evaporates before it hits your head.” Use just enough to hold your style.
Masking — Not Treating — Dandruff
Trying to nix flakes with moisturizing stylers like oils and pomades is only a temporary fix: Dandruff is actually an inflammatory scalp disease unrelated to dryness, says Dr. McMichael. The cure? A shampoo with salicylic acid, zinc, selenium sulfide or tar to eliminate flakes.
So, how to get rid of blackheads? Before we go there, lets first see What are blackheads?
Many girls and guys suffer from dark black heads on their nose which makes them feel bad. Here are some remedies on how to remove blackheads. Blackheads are the slightly different sibling of zits, and like zits, squeezing them can be addictive. Composed of the same oil, or sebum, that contributes to the production of pimples, blackheads result from a building up of this oil in pores – the difference in appearance is the result of the blackhead’s exposure to the air, the reaction of which with the oil causes the trademark black color of these blemishes. And while blackheads are more easily obscured by makeup, they can seem less offensive to the sufferer, and as a result, less damaging to squeeze. But the bad news is that this is not the best way of removing blackheads – the fun stuff is always bad for us! And while squeezing them might be fun, getting rid of them altogether sounds better. So what is the best way to remove blackheads from our lives? Here are some tips for removing blackheads for good.
Like pimples, blackheads are the result of an underlying skin problem – the over production of oil by glands contained in our skin, exacerbated by the improper shedding of old skin – and rather than removing blackheads by squeezing, the best way to get rid of them is by attacking the source of the problem. A good cleansing routine is one of the best ways to remove blackheads, as it will help wash away excess oil and dead skin particles. A gentle cleanser is a good choice as it won’t dry out the skin excessively (which results in the production of even more of that nasty sebum!). Combined with the use of a gentle exfoliant, which will help remove old skin cells, this is all you need to help keep your skin blackhead free.
But we all know that blackheads can be persistent, so how to get rid of blackheads that are more stubborn? Aggressive manipulation of the skin is never good, and so tips for removing blackheads include above all else a gentle touch. Before attempting to squeeze a blackhead, open up your pores by steaming your face, and then use a blackhead remover or some clean tissue to remove the blockage. Remember – the best way to remove blackheads is to be gentle! An overly heavy hand will only force the blockage deeper into the skin, causing dreaded zits. Surely squeezing isn’t worth that.
