Why Insurance is Important Once You Have Created a Beauty Empire

Why Insurance is Important Once You Have Created a Beauty Empire

The beauty world is a complex, yet rewarding one. It is filled with ever-changing trends, cut-throat business environments, and a rich culture dating back most of human history. So it is no surprise that thousands of people attempt to break into the world of beauty and fashion every year.

But people often forget that any beauty empire, whether it be selling make-up or clothes. Or even if it’s just a modeling agency. They are still a business. And any business requires a certain amount of business acumen and knowledge that can’t be found just within the pages of fashion magazines or on fashion blogs, not that these sources aren’t important for this line of work.

Today we are going to be talking about an often forgotten aspect of business and one that is crucial for a beauty empire. Insurance. We will look at the different types of insurance your business empire will need and why you will need them.

Why You Need General Liability Insurance

This type of insurance is mainly needed if your type of beauty business works with customers in a front-facing environment. Hairdressers, saloons, spas, fashion boutiques. Any business that has customers entering your premises.

General liability insurance essentially protects you, and the customer, against injury, theft, and property damage. It is used when a customer attempts to make a claim against your business. So if a customer trips over something in your store and is injured, they might want to get compensation from you. If you have GLI then the insurance company will handle this and make a payout, protecting your company from taking a hit.

This is super important, especially for hairdressers or salons. In these environments, there are lots of potential hazards. Burning off equipment. Chemical irritants. Allergic reactions. Trip hazards. So this type of insurance is a must!

Why You Need Workers Insurance

If you are lucky enough to have built a beauty empire, chances are you will have a lot of staff. And with a large staff base comes a lot of potential issues. Sick leave. Accidents. Arguments and HR disputes. All of which can potentially lead to action against your company. Workers’ compensation insurance is a way to protect your staff and yourself in case any of these situations arise.

Say a member of staff burns themself badly on curling irons. If you have insurance then they will pay out the settlement rather than you. Or if a member of staff is taken ill, through no fault of your own, then this type of insurance will help pay their medical bills without you being out of pocket. It is important for any large business to have this type of insurance as it boosts staff morale and is also great for PR as well.

Why You Need Life Insurance

This one might seem a bit confusing. How does life insurance affect your business? Isn’t it just focused on you? And you’re right. But think of it this way. Your business is as much part of you as say your hobbies or favorite meals. It is your creation and you want it to be cared for after you’re gone, in the same way, you want your family to be cared for.

Life insurance only pays out when you’re dead, or if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness such as cancer in some policies. There are plenty of different types of life insurance policies. Direct term is a policy that runs for a specified period. Normal life insurance runs for as long as you pay it. We usually recommend that you learn about direct term life insurance policies as they are the most flexible and customizable policies. As a business owner, you will want something you have more control over and can style to your needs.

Life insurance is vital for the continuing success of your business after you’re gone. If it’s a family business then you will be able to leave your successor a sizable sum to help get them started and keep the business afloat. Many insurance firms will also offer counseling and guidance to the bereaved after the fact as well. So you can rest assured both your family and your business will be in safe hands.

Why You Need Data Breach Insurance

The digital age is here in full force. Even the beauty business world has to make use of digital data storage. But with digital storage comes the threat of data leaks. This has become more prevalent in recent years with a number of larger companies suffering data leaks, including Apple, Google, and even Amazon.

Data breach insurance is, as the name implies, insurance against a data breach. You could have the most expensive digital security on the market and still suffer a data breach. This type of insurance covers you against claims made against your company by clients if their data is stolen.

Beyond that a lot of insurance companies will also pay for PR campaigns to help mitigate the reputation damage to your business after the fact, meaning you won’t be out of pocket. And the companies will often provide cyber-security specialists to help shore up your digital defenses too. This is an insurance type you simply cannot afford to skip out on.

5 Ways to Make Your Next Girl's Night More Exciting

5 Ways to Make Your Next Girl’s Night More Exciting

As a woman, some of the best nights that you will have in your lifetime are the nights that you spend with your girlfriends. Sometimes all that you need is to spend some time with your gal pals and relay your most recent events to each other.

If you are a woman, then it is likely that your upcoming girl nights are something that you eagerly look forward to. When you find people that you relate to and get along well with, you can have all sorts of fun with nothing more than a couple of bottles of wine and some great music.

Girls nights give you a chance to share any big news you have, as well as plan upcoming events and confide in your friends. For the last year, there has been a bit of a halt on being able to attend or host girls nights, due to covid restrictions. Now that you are allowed to meet up with your friends again, you may be excited but also a bit apprehensive. Being social doesn’t come as naturally to people anymore, so you may be afraid that your next night with your girls might be a bit stiff. We have your back, here are 5 easy ways to make your next girls night much more exciting.

Head to a Karaoke Bar

Head to a Karaoke Bar

A great way to break through any awkwardness that may be lingering is by heading to a karaoke bar. You have no choice but to throw yourself into the situation when you are at a karaoke bar and it can be an embarrassing experience for you all. Singing is good for the soul and so hitting the karaoke bar will be a great way to work through any frustrations and built-up feelings that you may have.

Play Some Fun Games

There is nothing better than playing a few cheeky games with your friends. There is absolutely nothing that you can not share with your closest girlfriends, but if you haven’t had the chance to catch up in a while, it may seem a little awkward. We say that you jump straight in and ask embarrassing truth or dare questions, this will allow you to fall back into the comfortable state that you are used to and will give you a chance to catch up on anything that you may have missed during the time you were not hanging out with your friends.

Have a Cocktail Night

When drinks are flowing, you are bound to have a great night. At this point, we think that it is required that every girl group has a signature cocktail. Instead of choosing from a cocktail that exists, you can buy a bunch of ingredients and try to make one for yourself. You could even make it into a friendly little competition and see who manages to make a cocktail that truly represents the style of the whole group. You can then continue to make this cocktail at every group meet up, which will become a fun little tradition.

Arts and Crafts Night

Not every girls night needs to be full of booze and outrageous activities. Sometimes we all just need a relaxed night, but you don’t have to have this relaxed night alone. Why not get the girls together and start a DIY project together. We recommend that you do something collaborative, such as a painting night. A very common trend is trying to recreate Bob Ross paintings and it is a lot of fun that is guaranteed to bring all of your friends together.

Retail Therapy

Everybody loves shopping and there is nothing better than mooching around the shops with your best friends. Your friends will tell you if something looks good or bad, which is honesty that we all need every now and again. In between heading to the shops, you can also stop for a bite to eat. This is a great activity for this time of year, where Christmas is coming up and a lot of gifts need to be bought.

You can fit in some great conversations when you are walking with your friends as there is not much that you can do while shopping aside from catching up.

The Do's and Don’ts on Your Big Day

Wedding Makeup: The Do’s and Don’ts on Your Big Day

As a woman, it is likely that you have spent the mass majority of your life planning your perfect wedding day. From childhood, the idea of one day being married is something that we all fantasize about. Even if you are someone that isn’t the biggest fan of the prospect of marriage, it is hard not to be excited about the idea of having a wedding one day.

A wedding day allows you to dress in a beautiful dress and be adored by all of your friends and family, so what’s not to love? Weddings take a lot of planning and every detail needs to fit the theme and meet a strict deadline, so even though weddings can be amazing, they are also very difficult to plan.

If you have found yourself lucky enough to be engaged, then it is likely that you are currently working your way through the process of planning a wedding. You may have gotten all of the important items sorted out, from the dress to the caterers. But as the big day approaches, it is time to take care of the little details. This means that you have to put time into picking out placemats, furnishings and most importantly, your makeup.

As the bride, all eyes will be on you, so you want to ensure that you are looking the best that you can. Wedding makeup is not the same as your everyday makeup and so there are certain things that you may do in your day to day life, that you simply can not do when you are getting married. Here are the dos and don’ts of your big day makeup.

Do- Hire a professional artist

An easy mistake that a lot of brides on a budget make is deciding to do their own makeup. You have enough to worry about on your wedding day, so why add to this worry by doing your own makeup?

If you are worried about the cost of a makeup artist, you could always suggest to your bridal party that you would like it paid for as a wedding gift. We specifically recommend that you go for a professional artist with a lot of experience in wedding makeup, as makeup for weddings has to be done a little different. Once you have found a makeup artist that falls into your budget, ask to see examples of previous work that they have done. This will allow you to feel more secure in their ability, while also giving you some inspiration on how you would like the makeup on your big day.

Don’t- Skip Makeup Practice

When you have found a makeup artist that you like, they usually offer you a trial run of the makeup before the wedding, so that you can see how it looks. This usually comes at an additional cost, so it is easy for you to be tempted to opt-out of it. This is something that you should never do. On your actual wedding day, you are working with limited time, so if you do not like the makeup you will not have a second chance to do it.

By doing a trial run of your makeup, you will be able to make any changes that you want or get rid of your makeup artist completely. Just because your artist looks good online, does not mean that they are great in person, so it is important to check so that you look good at your wedding.

Do- Match Your Glitters to Your Ring

Achieving the perfect wedding makeup is all about focusing on the little details. When you do your wedding makeup, you cannot go too big, so you really need to focus on the subtle details that you can add. A trend that a lot of brides are following right now, is matching the glitter on their eyes with the color of their ring. This really ties your look together perfectly and is a super simple way to make yourself look more beautiful.

If you are someone that has a clear ring, you may be wondering how you can add to your makeup look. The first question you should ask yourself is whether your ring is a diamond or moissanite. You may be wondering how this makes any difference, but there is more of a shine to moissanite compared to diamond, so if you have a moissanite ring you can go for a glam glitter, whereas if you have a diamond you can go for a subtle shimmer.

Don’t- Let Your Bridesmaid do Your Makeup

You may have a friend that always looks fantastic, however just because they can do their own makeup, does not mean that they can do yours. Don’t be tempted to take the cheap way out by allowing your friend to do your makeup, as they could completely mess it up and compromise your friendship.

4 Makeup Brands that Are Environmentally Conscious

To become popular nowadays, it is important that makeup brands are environmentally friendly as this is something that is becoming increasingly important for many people, especially the younger generation. People will likely not be aware that their favorite makeup brands are actually not environmentally conscious and maybe even test on animals- which no one in their right mind would be happy about! Below are 4 makeup brands that you can use and know that you are not causing damage to the environment.

 

PHB Ethical Beauty

Well, this one really is what it says on the tin and there’s no risk of you getting mistaken here. This brand is very dedicated to ensuring that all its products do not pose a risk to the environment, including anything living in it. All their products do not include any toxic ingredients, are vegan, and work on a 0 zero-waste policy. Their beauty product deals are established in tandem with charities and organizations fighting climate change. A lot of thought goes into the packaging of these products to ensure they can all be recycled properly and to reduce the plastic use that we often see in the shops. This does mean that these products are often packaged in a fairly plain style but this actually adds to their aesthetic.

 

Odylique By Essential Care

This is another makeup brand that wants to make it as obvious as possible that they stand for all things environmentally friendly but to prove to people that this does not mean the makeup quality to worse, if anything it’s been shown to be better! They sell a wide range of vegan products which do not include palm oil or any toxins that may not affect humans but can have a detrimental impact on the lives of animals. All ingredients are 100% organic which also means that they are great for sensitive skin, because why should products that make us feel better about ourselves cause us to break out in rashes?!

 

Vyana Plant Beauty

If you have a look at this brand’s products (especially eyeshadow) you will be amazed! The pigment of these products is amazing and isn’t it good to know that everything is not only beautiful but also natural and not harmful to the environment? This brand also has packaging that aims for zero waste but something particularly unique about Vyana is that they use packaging made from corn starch, making it not only recyclable but dissolvable.

 

Dirty Hippie Cosmetics

The name idea behind this one is quite funny- the brand explained that due to people who feel strongly about protecting the environment usually being pictured as ‘hippies’ who are natural and have bad hygiene, they thought it would be funny to give their environmentally cautious this very name. This brand offers one of the largest range of environmentally friendly products- including foundations, mascaras, lipsticks, and even moisturizers. They have recently branched out into doing skincare and hair products after the makeup range became so popular. There have been rumors that this brand is unfortunately not completely palm oil free so this is something they are working on!

5 Creative Ways to Match your Outfits with your Home

If you are someone that has a social media account, then you have probably been overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people showing off their more recent home makeovers. Over the last year, we have all spent a lot of time at home and while the majority of us used that time to watch Netflix and put on weight, some people decided to reinvent their homes.  

One of the most recent trends that have been taking the internet by storm is matching your personal aesthetic with your house decor. Doing this has allowed some people to create eye-catching photographs, so there is no wonder why so many people are eager to try it out for themselves. Here are five creative ways to match your outfits with your home.  

 

Decide your signature color  

One of the first steps that you should make when trying to match your outfits with your home is choosing the primary color that you wear. We all have our preferences and knowing yours means that you will be able to buy the bulk of your decoration under a certain color. If you are unable to choose a color that represents your look, then pick a neutral color that goes well with the majority of your outfits.  

 

Don’t make your decor too permanent  

Something that we recommend is making sure that your home decor isn’t too permanent. It is not unusual for people to change up their individual style regularly and so it doesn’t make sense to be limited by your decorations. There are little tricks you can use to make sure that your decor isn’t extremely permanent. Something that is often done by content creators is buying interchangeable versions of decor. For example, you can buy backdrops that you can constantly change and hang in your home and they are very easy to attach to any surface. 

 

Don’t over decorate 

When people have their minds on a certain aesthetic, it is not unheard of for them to go a little crazy with decor. This is completely normal, but we recommend that you try and restrain yourself as you will only find yourself in a position where you have to replace a lot of decor in the future, which can be extremely pricey. Instead, keep your home decor minimalistic, so it will be much easier to shake it up when you feel like it. 

 

Workaround your decor, not your outfits 

Trying to match a room to an outfit can be a very difficult task, so that is why we recommend that you dress to fit your environment. Doing this will be much easier, as all you will need to think about is choosing the right colors and accessories. If you have ever tried to match your room to your outfit, you will realize that there are lots of different details that are difficult to express in your decor, so we suggest that you relax and keep it as minimalistic as you can.  

 

Patterns 

Patterns can be your best friend and also your worst enemy. Though patterns may seem like a good decorative choice, we recommend that you avoid overusing patterns as much as you can.  Depending on what you choose to wear, a bold pattern could conflict with the outfit that you have constructed, which will only throw off your whole look. If you do choose to use patterns, we recommend that you limit them to items that can be switched out and changed easily, such as pillows and throws. By doing this, you will save yourself a lot of stress in the future.  

Gaining or Losing Weight: The Tricks to Doing Both!

With the current state of the world, we have all become a lot more focused on the state of our health.  Each and every one of us is implementing new routines and eating patterns into our daily lives in order to ensure that our bodies are healthy enough to take on any medical issue that may be thrown at it.  

Not only are we trying to ensure that our bodies are as healthy as they can be, but many of us have also unfortunately fallen out of shape during the last year due to the unusual circumstances that we have all faced.  When it comes to returning to health, there is a common misconception that this only involves losing weight, which is simply not the case. 

Though losing weight can be an essential part of getting healthy, many people forget that gaining weight can often be just as important. If you have ever tried to do either, then you will be more than aware of just how difficult the process can be. Here are some of our essential tips for losing and gaining weight.  

Health supplements  

One of the best ways in which you can lose or gain weight is through the use of supplements. Supplements are fantastic for both losing and gaining weight. There are some supplements that are perfect for substituting calories that you may not be able to get naturally, which is great for people who aren’t able to gain weight from what they eat.  

Diet supplements have been popular for a number of years and there are a number of companies that promise that they will help you achieve weight loss. However, you can never be too sure with these companies and a lot of the pills on offer do not actually help you lose weight. A great way to find out whether or not diet pills work is by checking out reviews made about them, we recommend that you look into phenq diet pills review. Diet pills help to suppress your hunger, which is one of the main issues that people battling with weight loss have to overcome. 

Better eating habits 

 

One of the main causes of being overweight and being underweight is having poor eating habits. People who are overweight tend to eat more than they should, whereas people who are underweight simply don’t eat enough.  

Though eating isn’t the only determining factor of your weight, it does play a big part. If you are someone that wishes to lose weight, it is recommended that you eat smaller portions of healthier foods. Whereas if you want to gain weight, then it is recommended that you eat bigger portions more frequently. This is especially the case if you are someone that has a fast metabolism, as eating regularly will allow you to keep on top of the fat burning in your body.  

What you eat is also very important for your weight loss and gain journey. If you are trying to lose weight, then portions are not the only thing that matters. You also need to ensure that the products that you are putting into your body are healthy. Again, this doesn’t just apply to food, drinks are often forgotten during the weight loss journey even though they are often full of lots of sugar that can be detrimental to your weight loss. No matter whether you’re trying to lose weight or gain it, we recommend that you substitute your usual sugary drinks for water as water is much better for you and will keep your body sustained so you can exercise or complete your general tasks.  

Mind and Body: 8 Great Ways to Keep both at their Best

Ensuring that you have a healthy diet is one of the best ways to maintain both your physical and mental health, it is a common misconception that eating healthy only improves physical fitness but cutting out harmful chemicals and preservatives from your diet also promotes regular brain activity. There are a number of factors that are aided by eating healthy such as preserving a healthy sleep schedule which is a great way to improve your mental health also.  

Drinking-Water 

Being hydrated ensures that your body has what it needs to retain your health and avoid further issues as a result of dehydration. When your body lacks water it is affected in a number of different ways, you will find that concentrating is harder when you are dehydrated and you could also experience pretty severe headaches if your body does not have enough water in its system. 

Vitamins and Supplements

Starting to use vitamins and supplements to ensure you are at peak mental and physical health is often very daunting especially if it is not something that you have tried before. You shouldn’t be afraid of using these amazing health products as taking regular vitamins in your daily life can actually be very beneficial. For instance, if you are someone that experiences issues with a lack of sleep you could be suffering from an iron deficiency that is affecting your motivation and energy levels. If this is the case you may find that taking vitamins gives you more long-lasting energy throughout the day that can seriously help you to improve your overall mental and physical health in a really big way.  

Benefits of CBD

CBD is a pretty new supplement that has some amazing benefits including helping to relieve symptoms of anxiety and producing a higher quality of sleep for people who suffer from issues in this area. There is a lot of speciation round these products with many asking où pouvez-vous acheter de l’huile de cannabis? You will be glad to know that there are now a lot of online retailers of CBD products to help you found a product that fits in seamlessly with your everyday lifestyle. CBD products are very versatile and you can find a variety of easy-to-use supplements to get you on your way to better mental and physical health. 

Exercise

It should come as no surprise to you that doing regular exercise will help improve your health physically, however, what many people do not realize is that exercise is also a great way to unwind and relax your mind to help improve your mental health also. When you do exercise the body will release huge amounts of serotonin leaving you with a much more positive outlook and feeling throughout your day. 

 

Taking Time to Relax

If you are someone who is trying very hard with maintaining a strict exercise regime or you are trying new things to help improve your mental state, then it can be very easy to become overwhelmed with everything that you are trying to do. Sometimes the best thing you can do for your mind and body is to take a rest day and spend the day relaxing doing things that you enjoy or else you run the risk of becoming overworked which is not going to do you any favors.  

Socializing

Implementing social time to see your friends and family on a  regular basis is a great way to make you feel more positive about things and boost your mood. Socialising can be done amongst other activities such as exercising meaning that you can help your physical and mental health simultaneously, one of the biggest reasons behind some of the worlds most commonly faced mental health issues comes from a feeling of loneliness so it is important now more than ever that you see your loved ones on a regular basis. 

Music

Escaping in your favorite music is a great way to unwind and forget about your problems, getting lost in your headphones would have to be one of the best ways to help maintain your mental health, and it is something that you should do throughout the day. As mentioned previously it is very important that you find time to relax away from your commitments and using music is a great way to do this.  

How to Break Into the World of Professional Makeup Artistry

Becoming a professional grade makeup artist is a very hard task, the industry is a very busy area with more and more aspiring artists coming onto the scene to increase the competition that amateur makeup artists have to compete with on a daily basis. As the industry is so crowded it can be hard to know what to do in order to convey your art in a way that portrays you as an individual rather than being compared to other existing artists.

 

Create a Platform For Your Content

One of the best ways to get started as a professional makeup artist would have to be creating some form of a platform where you can display your amazing work for the world to see. If you want to spread awareness of the makeup services that you offer then it would be highly recommended that you start setting up a website or compiling a portfolio of your best work so that potential customers have something to look at that will persuade them to use your services. As make-up artistry is dependent on showing off your personal skills and style it is important that you have something in place to be able to show this off to potential customers. In comparison to an artist that does not do this, you will find a significant increase in your customers if you are showing off what you can do to an effective standard.

Social media is also a great place to set up a new platform where you can display your makeup talents as you have the opportunity to connect with thousands of people all over the world without much effort. As most artists are self-employed the fact that social media is free also helps to start your business as you do not have to pay for your advertising.

 

Social Media

Social media is a great tool for any amateur makeup artist as it is a free-to-use platform that can be used to display any of your previous makeup jobs as well as being used to set up future appointments with new clients. If you are a makeup artist and you are not currently making use of what social media can do for your business then I would urge you to start doing it immediately. Social media provides an advertising platform that you can use to spread the word about your skills as well as being a place where customers can contact you if they want to hire you for a makeup job.

Social media is also a great way to reach out to makeup brands who may be offering some kind of collaboration with new artists, many brands will partner up with popular makeup artists on social media to advertise their products. Often in exchange for a fee or some free makeup products, this can be a great way to create a relationship between yourself and any existing brands as well as providing the opportunity to get some free products that can be used in your kit.

 

Sourcing Your Professional Kit

One of the biggest challenges faced by new makeup artists is sourcing the products that are needed to be able to provide people with a high-quality makeup job. Your kit should be extensive enough to cover any needs your customer may have including having a client’s preferred formula and shade. Especially when you are first starting out you may find that you will need to make a significant investment in making sure you have everything you need to be able to do your job to the best of your ability.

If you are struggling with this then I would highly recommend that you reach out to any existing artists or lookout for any special offers aimed at helping new artists, some companies will offer a bulk buy deal where you can get all of the basics for one price which will save you a lot of money in the long run. If you are unsure about a career in the makeup industry then I would recommend that you take time to think about what you are doing as the investment required is not something that should be rushed into.

 

Trying New Things

If you really want to be successful in this industry then you should be looking at ways that you can present yourself as an individual rather than focus on trends that every artist is doing. The more unique you are then the more likely it is that people are going to rush to you to get their makeup done if you are offering something that cannot be found elsewhere. As one of the more creative jobs, you can do you should be trying new things and experimenting with your art every day to encourage yourself to try new things with how you do makeup.

 

Trying new things should be extended to the different beauty services that you offer, within this industry if you are able to do multiple things then it is likely that you will get repeat business from many of your clients. New processes such as offering lash lifts are very easy to become qualified for and all you need to buy is the nicky lash lift kit, and you will be able to begin offering lash extension services to your clients which extends your skillset.

Loving Yourself: How to Look Good while Injured

In the unfortunate circumstance that you find yourself injured in any way, you may feel that your confidence is knocked and some days it can be hard to find the motivation to put yourself in a positive mindset. One of the best ways to look good while injured would have to be feeling good and having a positive mindset, although it can be hard to see things positively especially if your injury leaves you incapacitated for a while. There are many things that you can do to boost your confidence and help you see things in a better light whilst you are on the road to recovery. It isn’t just about material items but a lot of what makes up the idea of loving yourself is how you feel on the inside and how that affects your outer appearance.

 

The thing to remember when it comes to dealing with the injury and healing process is that you cannot change what has happened and you can’t change the fact that you are injured. You should take the opportunity to think about any personal goals or even a few ways to prevent injuries in soccer so that you can reduce the chances of finding yourself in a similar situation in the future. If you are able to find the positives behind your injury and if you make use of your newfound time resting you are more likely to feel confident which will be reflected in how you look. There is no point in being too depressed about your injury and you should be focusing on making a full recovery so that you can get back to normality.

 

Accessories

Although it has been mentioned previously that how you feel on the inside is more important than how you look on the exterior there is no denying that a bit of retail therapy can really help boost your mood. However, if you are someone who is suffering from a more serious injury that has affected your mobility, or if it means that you are forced to wear a cast you may find buying some new outfits a bit difficult. If any of your limbs are currently out of action then you may not be able to buy certain clothes for a while, so it may be a better idea to treat yourself to some small accessories such as a piece of jewelry so that you can look stylish without having to buy something that you are not currently able to enjoy.

 

If you are in a bad mood then going out for the day with your loved ones for a look around the shops could be just what you need, it can be an annoyance looking at things that your injury stops you from being able to wear so buying something smaller that you can use straight away may be the way to go.

 

Confidence

It is easier said than done to simply achieve confidence but there are steps that can be taken to help you feel better about yourself so that you look better on the outside. A significant part of looking good comes from how you feel and how confident you look, no matter whether you are injured or not if you start to look at yourself in a more positive light and start taking things less seriously you are bound to look good and confident to those around you. This is easier said than done especially if you find yourself with an injury but accepting what has happened and the fact that you cannot change it is definitely the first step in this process.

 

Colorful Choices

If your injury is on the more serious side of it requires you to wear a cast around one of your limbs you will find that some items in your wardrobe are going to be off-limits for a while. It is often argued that clothing is one of the most effective ways to build confidence and that having an outfit that you personally enjoy is one of the best ways to feel good whilst looking good. This is often affected when you are injured so you have to make changes to how you dress and stay confident and comfortable to accommodate for your injury.

 

There are things that you can change to ensure your clothes are practical but still stylish enough to make you feel good about yourself. One of the best ways to do this would be to inject some color into your outfits when injured you will be limited to your more basic clothing to allow for as much maneuverability as possible so changing up your clothes color palette can be a great way to make sure your outfits are still eye-catching and fashionable.

How to Plan and Throw the Perfect Hen Night

Whether you are the bride or the maid of honor, planning the hen night can almost be as stressful as planning the wedding! There is much to take into consideration including, your budget, the age of your guests, and what the bride wants vs what everyone will enjoy.

If you are the bride then remember that the hen party is a celebration of your happiness so it should be something that you primarily enjoy. However, it is also important to consider the age and preferences of the people invited to your party, for example, if lots of people in your friend group don’t drink then a bar might not be the ideal place. Similarly, if you are the maid of honor or a bridesmaid that has been tasked with planning the party, then make sure the event is something that you know the bride will love, whilst also taking into account the needs of other members of the party so that everyone feels included.

Budget

The first step in planning the perfect hen night can be the most important factor leading to what you ultimately decide; the budget. Whether you are financing the party yourself or someone else is paying for it, but you are in charge of the details, it is critical that you do not exceed that budget. Of course, you want everyone to have a night they will never forget, but not at the cost of breaking your own or someone else’s bank. It is not necessary to have a destination holiday or retreat at an expensive spa. There are plenty of great parties you can have on a smaller budget. For example, you could have a gathering at someone’s home or a village hall. Clubbing can be a good option too if everyone pays for their own drinks, perhaps with everyone pitching in for the brides. At the end of the day, if the bride is surrounded by her loved ones, then everyone should have a good time.

Who is Invited?

Another vital factor of planning a hen party is to take into consideration who is invited. The age and relation to certain guests, in particular, can be a large influence on where and how the party is held. For example, if the future mother in law is attending, then perhaps clubbing is not the greatest idea. Similarly, if those with children who would also be in attendance are coming, then anything adventurous or involving alcohol might not work either. If the hen party is to include the future in-laws, older generations, and children, then a meal at a respectable restaurant that sells the bride’s favorite cuisine would work perfectly. On a slightly different note, many forget that the hen party should be made up of the bride’s closest friends and family which could include those of any gender, not just women, so it should be something that anyone regardless of gender would enjoy.

 

When

One area of hen party that rarely gets taken into consideration is when it should be held. Too far before the wedding and the celebration can feel premature or can become rushed. Too near to the wedding and the stress and anticipation of the day can overshadow any enjoyment or memories of the hen night. The date must also be one where people are free to attend otherwise the entire planning process will be a waste if nobody can come.

 

Interests

Whilst it is important and amiable for everyone to enjoy themselves, at the end of the day the hen party is a celebration of the bride-to-be’s happiness and the people in her life that have made it so. As such, the party should cater mostly towards the bride’s interests. If the bride is particularly adventurous, then perhaps an aerial adventure park or an extreme water sports experience could bring her joy. Or if her version of paradise is time to herself, then a relaxing spa day might be more her speed. If the members of your hen party have been friends since high school, perhaps you could relive the moments that shaped your friendship in the form of a sleepover, which wouldn’t be complete without embarrassing truth or dare questions.

To summarize, the perfect hen party is one that will be inclusive of the guest’s age, gender, and relations whilst ultimately catering to the bride’s interests and desires, without blowing the budget.
