How to pick your coffee table

Filed under: Ladies interests — Me2 @ 12:00 pm

When you're picking furniture for your living room, the coffee table should be the last item you choose. It has to suit both the style and space of the room. It also has to go with the color scheme of the rest of the furniture. So, for example, if you have a sofa and two chairs it is more suitable to put a rectangular table and if you have a two seater and a three seater sofa, a squarish table would be the best choice. If your sofa is a level shorter than usual then the table must be low too and if you have chosen light upholstery for your sofa and curtains then you should make the table in a darker shade for contrast and vice versa. Furthermore, it is very important for the coffee table to be in proportion with the space it is going to be placed in :a small table for a small room and a large table for a large room. Here are some nice ideas to help you select the coffee table for you:

 

The bench clearly draws on the Asian aesthetic of composure, allowing its clean, well defined lines to speak for themselves. It could also be used as a TV/DVD station or as a decorative console.

 

The scroll coffee table has a modern Chinese style. Its drawers make it very useful for the family room. The crackle finishing gives it the look of leather.

 

A two leveled coffee table is more functional because it allows for more storage place.

 

A low coffee table that reaches the ground gives an informal and simple style.

 

A simple coffee table might be easy to make, but it's beauty lies in its fine finishing. Also notice the nice contrast between the dark table and light curtains and sofa

 

A chocolate and vanilla composition of sofa and cocktail table is original. The contrast between the straight upper surface of the table and its curved ends creates a dynamic duo. Two side tables on each side of the sofa complete the picture.

 

A unique harmony exists between the leather table top and the wooden curved legs which does not take away from the charming details: elegant decorative stitching, drawers and curved shapes

 

Using two coffee tables of a similar design is very fashionable now. The idea is to make them in different dimensions and proportions. In addition to being attractive it's also very practical because you can serve more people already enough storage space in your room then choose a table from the

So you should first set your priorities to choose which table. If your family consists of many members, or if you invite your friends frequently to your livingroom, then the two-table choice suites you. If you need more storage place in your room, then a two storey table will do the task, but if you care only for the looks of the table and have rest of the above mentioned

Filed under: Ladies interests — Me2 @ 2:35 pm

 

 

 

 

Nails are important as they reflect part of the woman's beauty. they
are visible to every one and easy to notice, if a woman is taking care
of her Nails or not.

You'll need those tools at home to take care of ur hands & feet

 

Don't forget the tawl & a deep plastic plate or powl to put ur hands & feet in

 

scrub cream & shower jel or cream

To help you taking care of your nails, here's some essentials tips & advices :

  1. Hangnails is a reflection of dry & rough cuticle. So the golden rule is to keep your cuticles hydrated and moisturized.
  2. Remove cuticles or not ? There are 2 points of view, one is to keep cuticles as barriers from bacteria. Other point of view is to remove them on regular basis . The optimum opinion is to keep them and groom them or in other words remove them partially.
  3. The partially removal is by using creams and a wooden stick to push cuticles back wards then move the stick in circles round the base of the nail to get rid of dead skin.
  4. To have a glamorous looking nail polish
    • Make sure you have very clean nails.
    • Use a base coat that acts as a foundation and another top coat as a protector to the polish.
    • Leave round 5 minutes between coats to allow to dry.
    • Don't use nail as a tool to type or to hold things with it.
  5. The nail file is a very important item in nail care tools so it has to be soft and gentle because if it is so hard it will tear your nails.
  6. File your nails in one direction in order not to be easily broken.
  7. Yellow color on nails is caused by frequent use of nail polish you can follow this recipe to get rid of it :
    • Bleach your nails with homemade solution of 1 tbsp of hydrogen peroxide and 21/2 tbsp of baking soda mix them in a bowl and put some of the mixture under each nail and on top and leave for 5 minutes then rinse with warm water. Results guaranteed.

2006 Spring & Summer Makup

Filed under: Ladies interests — Me2 @ 6:08 pm

 

I found those makup new look tips & must -buy while browsing,,, this’s really helpful

This year, the colors of spring are inspired by nature.. subtle browns, muted rose, soft peach, and whispery bronzes. These shades not only flatter every complexion but also are amazingly versatile and come in a range of textures.. everything from matte to sheer to creamy. Since the right colors are just part of the get-the-look kit, we’ve spelled out the steps you need to know to apply them and to contour your eyes, lips, and cheeks like a pro.

Sheer Radiance

Color Me Natural_Woman with lighter hair
This look, with its focus on sun-kissed skin, luminescent eyes, and glossy lips.. all in a monochromatic palette.. couldn’t be any prettier. Better yet, it’s so simple to duplicate. The key is to keep the shades all in the same family, concentrating the darker hues on your eyes and lips and sticking to a lighter version everywhere else. Tie the whole look together with bronzer, focusing on the forehead, temples, and nose.. where the sun normally hits.. then add a touch of peach blush. A few swipes of golden gloss on your lips and you’re out the door!

Step 1
Color Me Natural_Woman with pink tones of eye shadow and lipstick being applied
Start by applying a cream shadow over your makeup-free eye, from your lids up to brows, as well on the inner corner, near the tear duct; beige or something slightly peachier, such as a light apricot, is the ideal shade. A brush with nylon bristles, such as the one shown here, works best with cream-based formulas. Lightly tap the color in place, adding more shadow if necessary. Your base is now set, guaranteeing that the makeup to come will really stand out. Keep in mind that you can also use a powder shadow, which will give you a little more staying power but won’t be quite as luminescent.

Step 2

 

Color Me Natural_Applying shimmery eye shadow
Next, using the same brush as in the first step, reach for a shadow that’s in the same color family as the original but a shade darker. With a similar tapping motion, go over the first shade and cover the entire lid up to the crease. This will give your look the necessary depth. When you open your eyes and peer straight into a mirror, you should be able to see the color a bit higher than your natural crease.

Step 3
Color Me Natural_Make up application with white brush to eyeline
Finally, the grand finale: liner. There are as many ways to wear liner as there are liner colors. For this look, dip a flat-edged eyeliner brush, like the one shown here, into a black or dark brown powder shadow. Start on the outer corner of the eye and carefully press the color into place, stopping mid-eye to pick up a bit more color. Continue from the middle toward the inner eye, making sure to thin out the line as you get closer to the corner. (Concentrating too much color there can look like a mistake.) Finish your look with a few coats of mascara.

What You Need for This Look (clockwise from top):

NeedNatural_Blush and other

Chanel Irreelle Blush in Tea Rose, highlights cheeks. Diane von Furstenberg Beauty In the Nude Lipgloss Duet in Undressed/Naked, makes lips a luscious coral. Merle Norman Automatic Definitive Eye Pencil in Chestnut, lines without smearing or smudging. Clarins Soft Cream Eye Color in Golden 02, give eyes a sheer shine. Shiseido Hydro-Power Eye Shadow in Tiger Eye, a cream shadow, is beautifully luminous.

Sweet & Sexy
Color Me Natural_Woman with short dark brown hair with pink necklace

These classic makeup shades look so gorgeous together because they enhance your features while still remaining subtle. You’ll also see that the combination of rose and brown tones makes this look particularly flattering for fairer complexions. When you apply cream blush on your cheeks — remember, a little goes a long way! — make sure to blend with your fingers using a light touch. The result? A lit-from-within glow. Finish it all off with a simple application of pink lipstick or gloss.

Step 1

 

Color Me Natural_Make up application contouring eye below brow
Starting with a makeup-free eye, dip an angled natural-bristle brush into powder shadow. Pick any of spring’s brown shades, ideally one with a cooler, slightly yellow cast. This will help bring out the brilliance in pretty much any eye color. Tap the brush against your hand to blow off any excess product and prevent it from landing on your cheeks. Really work the powder onto the lids, concentrating it up to the crease. Just make sure not to get it near the browbone, as that area always needs a lighter shade to help highlight your eyes.

Step 2

 

Color Me Natural_Make up application lining the eye
The finishing step of this simple look is eyeliner. Here, you can either use a pencil liner with a really soft tip and blend it, or dip a skinny brush, such as the one pictured here, into power eye shadow and carefully circle your eyes, getting it really close to the lashline. (For a longer-lasting look, pencil is preferable.) Precision isn’t necessary here, so don’t fret if you’re not getting it just right. Finish off the look with black mascara, concentrating on the outer corners of the lashes for an eye-opening effect.

What You Need for This Look (from top):

NeedNatural_Vertical laying make up

Becca Cream Eye Colour in Bronze Gold, shows off lids with a creamy wash of golden brown. Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner in Espresso, is a waterproof and self-sharpening liner, great for defining along the lashes. Tarte Dollface Cheekstain, delivers a delicate shell-pink color that’s innocently sexy. Il Makiage Color Shadow in Sage, creates a matte-powder finish. L’Oreal Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss in Bubble Gum, adds a sweet pin shine to your pout.
