Scottish skincare studio 33Dowanhill faces up to what clients really need
GLASGOW-based skincare studio 33Dowanhill likes to do things differently.

The studio was founded in 2016 by facialist Jo Laxton, who has travelled the world to experience and learn different facial techniques. Bringing those skills to Glasgow, she opened her studio to fulfil her dream of challenging the modern-day skincare market with a firm focus on catering for the individual.

She explains: “I feel that the current skincare market is focused purely on flaws and a lack of transparency. This ‘smoke and mirrors’ approach makes it incredibly difficult for people to make informed decisions about their skincare needs and products that will work effectively.”

To realise her ambition, Laxton has created a space where clients can experience the top skincare treatments using a carefully selected range of products.

From natural and organic to the latest scientific skincare wonders, Laxton stocks a variety of products to cater for a range of different skin types.

To further distinguish itself, 33Dowanhill does not align itself with any one brand. This means the team have the freedom to select the best products in the global skincare market and, ultimately, the best products for their clients’ skin.

In addition to skincare, Laxton’s passion lies with making clients feel good about themselves – she is driven by her desire to help people feel confident, treating each client as unique and individual.

She explains: “I love making sure that each and every client feels taken care of, is given unbiased advice and, most importantly, leaves feeling positive about their skin, understanding how to continue that post-facial glow and implement effective routines for themselves.”

Individuality acts as the studio’s primary ethos. The team at 33Dowanhill felt that the majority of facials on the market failed to take into consideration individual skin needs and personal preferences and sought to challenge this.

“When it comes to skincare products, one size definitely does not fit all. A product might work wonderfully for your friend or family member, but that does not mean it will for you.”

Out of the studio’s ethos, the 33Dowanhill Signature Facial was born, a unique facial tailored to cater for an individual’s skin type and skin needs.

Each treatment is exclusively designed after a discussion with a 33Dowanhill facialist – although it will always include a deep double cleanse, acid exfoliation, facial massage and multi-masking.

Throughout the facial, clients will be treated with a tailor-made cocktail of serums, oils and balms that will help the skin glow, plump and hydrate.

The team believe it is their approach to skincare that sets them apart from other studios.

Laxton explains: “The way we approach each and every client and their skin is why we are different.

“No two people have the same skin issues, concerns or personal preferences towards treatments so therefore there is no reason to have a treatment menu.”

While Laxton and her team will continue to do things differently, one element will remain the same – 33Dowanhill will always educate and build the confidence of women through the power of skincare.

“We want to be a friendly and informative face in what can sometimes be the overwhelming and intimidating world of skincare. We want to demystify skincare and enable clients to have the best skin they can.”Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/vintage-wedding-dresses-au | http://www.sheindressau.com/lace-wedding-dresses-australia

Rose Garden Estate named 2018 Best of Weddings
Wedding couples have helped make Rose Garden Estate one of the top picks in Kern County, and now the venue has been awarded the 2018 Best of Weddings award by theknot.com.

The website assists with planning everything a bride and groom need, from finding the perfect location to picking the photographer.

“We are crazy happy that this award shows we are doing the right thing and excited to make people happy," said Lorie Weinroth, owner of Rose Garden Estate on Bear Valley Road. "It’s the right thing to do and I guess the couples agree."

Weinroth said Rose Garden Estate features a custom venue where couples can enjoy first-class services including a mountain view with a 5,000-square-foot barn, Victorian-style wedding space, custom bridal suites with Jacuzzi, linens, place settings, catering and even a pastor. A fountain with lighting can be matched to the main color of the wedding.

Since they have been named in the 2018 Best of Wedding venue picks, Weinroth said, couples from all over the state have booked the venue for their special event. The amenities included are a fraction of the price compared to other venues in other parts of the state, Weinroth said.

Many guests, in addition to wedding couples, have commented on the location and service provided.

Leslie Geissel, whose son was married at Rose Garden Estate, said, “We want to congratulate Paul and Lorie from Rose Garden Estate. We saw on the news last night that their venue won Best of Weddings for 2018. That is awesome. So blessed to have been able to have our son and daughter-in-law's wonderful wedding at their venue.”

According to a news release from theknot.com, only 3 percent of 300,000 local wedding professionals listed on the website have received this award. This is also the twelfth year these awards have been given and to determine the winners, theknot.com looked at reviews by customers and determined who is a top wedding professional and why future couples should book the venue.Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/wedding-dresses-adelaide | http://www.sheindressau.com/lace-wedding-dresses-australia

Akhil Akkineni shows off action chops
Hello movie cast: Akhil Akkineni, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Jagapati Babu, Ramya Krishna, Ajay

Hello movie director: Vikram K Kumar

Hello revolves around Akhil Akkineni (Avinash), who is in search of his first love he met during his childhood. Akhil Akkineni is all set to do his best at the box office with his second release Hello. The film is produced by Nagarjuna Akkineni. Akhil is super confident that this project would turn out to be a blockbuster.

Hello is directed by Vikram K Kumar. Vikram had earlier worked with Nagarjuna and his family during the shoot of Manam. The wedding song from Hello has already found its place in hearts of the audience for the simple treatment but what has taken away our attention is Akhil’s talent. He can act, dance and in fact, sing too. During a promotional tour in the US, Akhil performed live for his audience.

Nagarjuna believes Hello will be a career-defining film for Akhil who is under pressure to prove himself, especially after a flop debut film. Akhil has pinned hope on this film and is super confident about its success. Nagarjuna also said that his acting skills are just like the veteran actor Akkineni Nageshwar Rao.Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com | http://www.sheindressau.com/bridesmaid-dresses-australia

Ai-Ai finally weds Gerald after 4-year romance

After almost four years of dating, Ai-Ai delas Alas and Gerald Sibayan finally tied the knot in a star-studded wedding filled with tears and laughter, on Dec. 12 at Christ the King Parish in Quezon City.

“Ai-Ai looked fresh and very excited as she got out of a white vintage car. But she shed tears once she started walking down the aisle. Gerald cried, too,” director Louie Ignacio, who painted the actress’ veil with colorful flower accents, told the Inquirer.

Ai-Ai wore a Frederick Peralta gown—a gift from one of her best friends, Marian Rivera.

The couple’s exchange of vows, on the other hand, was a lighthearted moment, related Louie (who was the bride’s designated “yaya” during the wedding). “They were laughing and teasing each other. Napaka-cool lang nila,” said the filmmaker.

Louie and Ai-Ai were two of the 32 honorees at the recent 2017 Inquirer Indie Bravo! Awards.

Cubao Bishop Honesto Ongtioco presided over the High Mass, which was concelebrated by at least four other bishops and more than 10 priests.

The maid of honor was Ai-Ai’s daughter, Sophia; the best men were Ai-Ai’s son Sancho and Alden Richards; the matron of honor was Sharon Cuneta.

"I’m super happy for both my mom and Gerald,” Sancho told the Inquirer. “It has always been my mom’s dream to have a wedding like this. I’m happy that, finally, she has found someone to spend her life with forever.”

GMA 7 chair and chief executive officer Felipe L. Gozon, former vice president Jejomar Binay, GMA 7 executive Marivin Arayata, talent manager and show biz columnist Lolit Solis and APT Entertainment’s Tony Tuviera were among the principal sponsors in attendance.

Show biz couples Vic Sotto and Pauleen Luna, as well as Marian and Dingdong Dantes were secondary sponsors.

Meanwhile, the roster of bridesmaids and groomsmen included such celebrities as Piolo Pascual, Randy Santiago, Jose Manalo, Jerald Napoles, Ogie Alcasid, Regine Velasquez, Pops Fernandez, Valeen Montenegro, Barbie Forteza and Rufa Mae Quinto.

After the wedding, Ai-Ai—who plans to go on honeymoon with Gerald in Europe—posted on her Instagram account photos of the wedding, one of which said, “To God be the Glory!”Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/bridesmaid-dresses-perth | http://www.sheindressau.com/vintage-bridesmaid-dresses

Groom demands one crore dowry
The daughter of a prominent doctor in Rajasthan’s Kota town called off her wedding after the boy who is also a doctor demanded Rs 1 crore dowry from her family just before the final rituals were to be solemnized on Sunday. The bride who is also a doctor- identified as Dr Rashi Saxena, decided to take a tough stand when the groom demanded dowry. Her decision was welcomed by everyone in her family as well as the city.

Rashi is the daughter of senior professor of TB and Chest Department of Kota Medical college, Dr. Anil Saxena. She was to get married to a doctor from Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh on Monday.

The family decided to call off the wedding in the evening, however, did not inform anyone about this. They did not want to disrespect the guests who were to attend the function. Once the guests had dinner at 9.30 pm Dr. Saxena made the announcement from the stage. He also thanked all the well-wishers of the family for their support. Some high profile guests including doctors, politicians, and police officials had attended the function and all of them showed solidarity with Rashi and her family.

The boy’s family from Moradabad though did not show any respect for Rashi’s family and allegedly declined to pay the jewellery and money that had been gifted to them at the time of engagement ceremony. They allegedly even threatened the girl’s family. During the engagement ceremony, the girl’s family had given jewelry worth Rs 34 lakhs along with Rs 21 in cash to the boy. Dr. Saxena requested the boy’s family to return these and leave the wedding in a dignified manner however they did not do so and allegedly misbehaved.

Both families had decided that there would be no discussion on dowry and that the girl’s family could gift her whatever they wished to. The boy’s family though showed their true colors on the day of the wedding and not only demanded Rs 1 crore but also wanted them to gift each of the guests from their side with a gold coin.Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/green-bridesmaid-dresses | http://www.sheindressau.com/yellow-bridesmaid-dresses

Actress Izara's bridal veil becomes talk of the town
ACTRESS Izara Aishah’s marriage to Muhammad Adib Khalid last Friday was a splendid affair, with the bride dressed in an immaculate ensemble capped with a flowing headscarf.

Although some Netizens were all praise for her fashion-forward wedding attire, which was put together by popular designer Rizalman Ibrahim, many expressed unflattering opinions on her syariah-compliant, yet uncommon headdress.

Social media platforms were rife with cheeky observations and witty puns, mixed with more direct stabs at the veil.

One Netizen called it “roti tisu” while another asked: “Why is Izara wearing a curtain on her head?”

Rizalman posted on his Instagram account pictures of Izara in her wedding garb, with one captioned “Sopan Couture/Future Classic”.

In one post, he wrote: “I travelled the world to find inspirations for your wedding, finding historic silhouettes from as early as the 18th century abroad and local, from museums to palaces.

“Sourcing the material and implementing new couture techniques... hours of labour were needed to finish this masterpiece.

“Attended various theatres overseas to watch and learn staging and lighting effects in order to create those ‘nikah and drama’ elements.”

Another post, made a day ago by the fashion designer, featured an old, black-and-white file photo of two women dressed in songket, with one similar to Izara’s.

Rizalman captioned it: “Kids, next time don’t fall asleep when Cikgu Murni is teaching Sejarah Melayu (Malay History). See, now you’ve failed!”

The solemnisation ceremony for Izara, 25, and Adib, 27, who is the stepson of pop queen Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza, took place in an intimate event attended by over 500 guests in Damansara on Friday night.

Kate Upton's Wedding To Justin Verlander Looked Amazing
It's official! Supermodel Kate Upton and professional baseball star Justin Verlander have tied the knot. The happy couple wed in a luxurious ceremony at a cathedral with a view of the Montalcino Valley and its surrounding vineyards. Then the reception and family time took place at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in Tuscany, Italy. Mr. and Mrs. Verlander both shared a gorgeous picture of their walk down the aisle as husband and wife, and it is an image giving us all of the feels and the wedding goals.

How beautiful is that photo? Photographer KT Merry did a great job with this shot; but as you can see, Merry had a lot of great material to work with. Kate Uptonshared the picture with her 5.2 million fans and followers on Instagram. She wrote that she felt "lucky" to have married her "best friend," and she added grateful words for her family and friends who made the event "magical." Justin Verlander also shared the picture on Instagram, and in the caption, the Houston Astros baseball pitcher wrote,

Of course, Justin Verlander and his Houston Astros pals recently won the World Series. Between the huge personal and professional wins, it sounds like the 34-year-old athlete is on top of the world.According to a source for People, Valentino designed the gorgeous white wedding gown with lace sleeves that you see Kate Upton wearing in the photo.

Furthermore, she wore her hair down in loose waves, and she received makeup styling by makeup artist Tracy Murphy. In fact, Murphy posted various pictures of Tuscany and the Vatican during her time in Italy with Upton and Verlander; however, she did not post any public social media pictures of the wedding itself for obvious reasons.

Still, the photos Murphy posted showed that the weather in Italy was perfect for Upton and Verlander's beautiful November wedding.Kate Upton and Justin Verlander got engaged sometime in 2016, and the 25-year-old actress-slash-model debuted her custom engagement ring by jewelry designer Anita Ko on the red carpet of the Met Gala in May of the same year.

Upton later told reporters Verlander asked for her hand in marriage before the 2016 season began, but they decided to keep quiet about the news for a short while. In fact, Upton and Verlander chose not to reveal many details about their wedding plans while they were making them.

Kate Upton did indicate in interviews that she wanted to select the location and venue before picking out her wedding dress. Plus, Upton revealed early on that she wished to have family and friends at the ceremony, because she has always been close to them. It sounds like all of those wishes and more came true. Congratulations, Kate and Justin!Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/wedding-dresses-melbourne-au | http://www.sheindressau.com/wedding-dresses-sydney

6 Surprising Trends Shaping Marriage in the United States
Marriage is transforming in the United States. We’re getting married in different ways, for different reasons, to different people, and under different conditions and circumstances. So how are these trends forming, and what does it mean about the state of marriage in the United States?

Most Surprising Trends

These are some of the most surprising marriage-related trends forming in the United States:

Marrying delays. On average, people are waiting longer to get married, procrastinating a decision that previous generations made in their early 20s. This is especially common in the millennial generation, since many millennials still live with their parents, struggle financially, or otherwise feel unready for the commitment of marriage. This is driving the overall marriage rate slightly lower, and is skewing the marriage figures slightly higher, in favor of people in their late 20s to early 30s, instead of early 20s.

Lower divorce rates. Though many people assume that the divorce rate has risen consistently for decades and continues to rise, given how easy it is to get divorced in the United States, the divorce rate actually stands at a 40-year low. There are many potential reasons for this. It could be that the initial boom in divorce rates has finally ended, and divorce rates have stabilized. It could be that because people are marrying older, they’re making smarter and longer-term decisions about their partners. It could be that some people are forgoing marriage altogether, and filtering themselves out from the pool of potential divorcees. Most likely, it’s a complicated combination of all these factors and some that economists haven’t even identified.

Online registries and planning. Thanks to the prevalence and availability of the internet, the way people are planning weddings is starting to change too. Couples now have access to far more options, and with far greater convenience; for example, they can choose online registries with thousands of potential gift options, and contact online wedding planners for assistance without ever meeting in person.

More partnership without marriage. More people are also choosing to live together in a partnership, instead of getting married. Younger generations value marriage less as a symbol of a committed relationship, and instead pursue committed relationships by their own standards. This may be partially contributing to lower rates of divorce; since fewer committed couples formalize their commitments with marriage, fewer divorces are necessary if the couple eventually splits. On top of that, more people than ever before are living alone, without a partner or spouse; the rate was 39 percent in 2007, but has climbed to 42 percent in 2017.

Looser perspectives on marriage. People, especially younger people, are starting to see marriage as less important, and have looser perspectives on how and why marriages should take place. By some, marriage is seen almost as a luxury, rather than a necessity or an important social step to take. By others, marriage is seen as a relic of the past; it’s viewed as an outdated institution that was created for the sake of improving family status and ensuring successful bloodlines. Getting married is, therefore, a lower priority, and a more flexible one, than building a career and contributing to society.

Fewer religious overtones. Americans are becoming decreasingly focused on religion as well. Compared to 2007, there are about 5 million fewer Christians in the United States, and the percentage of Americans who have no religious affiliation has risen from 16 percent to nearly 23 percent. Accordingly, weddings and marriages are starting to have fewer religious overtones; there are more secular weddings in the United States, and religious-centric weddings are less focused on traditions and spirituality, and more focused on the celebratory nature of the event.

Are These Trends Good or Bad?

You likely read about at least one of these trends and thought about it as being a “good” or “bad” thing about society. For example, if you’re religious, you might see the increased secularism of marriages to be a sign of decline, or if you’re a major proponent of marriage, you might see the lower divorce rates as a good sign.

However, none of these trends is truly good or bad, for one important reason; marriage is a cultural creation, and it holds value only because we ascribe value to it. If, collectively, we redefine what those values are and how we perceive them, then our view on marriage changes, and we change along with it.Read more at:http://www.sheindressau.com/lace-wedding-dresses-australia | http://www.sheindressau.com/vintage-wedding-dresses-au
