Replicate a favorite movie scene

The movies are a great inspiration for anyone to create a scene that is not only dramatic and entertaining, but also full of passion and creativity. Anyone can use offers from Direct TV to practice a scene from their family’s favorite movie and create a little play that the whole family will love. One parent can even get the kids involved to do this act for another parent as a surprise.

Making a lunch to take to school or work usually seems like a boring task that people have to bear every single day. Anyone who wants to show a little extra love can surprise their family with special lunches that include some unique touches to brighten their day.

Everyone is always working hard every single day to improve their lives and the lives of their family. Many people feel that their work for their family or the accomplishments they achieve every day go unnoticed because they never get any recognition. Anyone can prove their work is worthwhile by simply getting congratulations every day.

Make a favorite meal or dessert

If lunches are not an option, another fun idea is making a special nightly meal or dessert. Including this in the regular routine is a simple way to show you care.

Create a new family ritual

Too many families are running around with their daily tasks that they forget to make time for family togetherness. Anyone can plan a new weekly ritual that the family can follow every week to get more quality time together. Weekly board games are a popular and fun tradition to start.

Support their passions

Everyone, especially children, will have new ideas that they are passionate about. Most parents may not completely understand or agree with these ideas, but they should positively support them all the same to show their love for their kids.

Spend more time with them

The simplest and best way to show the family that you care is to simply spend more time with them. This can be easily done through the weekly ritual, or just by being more present when at home with the family.

4 Luxury Watches and What They Say About Your Sense of Fashion

In modern times, the wrist watch has come to be accepted as a symbol of one’s sense of fashion and financial status.

Most people who buy luxury watches are not merely interested in telling time. They are keen to make a statement about their sense of fashion.

Men especially don an expensive watch to show that they have expensive taste. A luxury designer watch on a man’s wrist is the first indication that the man can afford the finer things in life. As such, a luxury watch is one sure way to get a lady to notice you.

For most men, the watch is probably the only jewelry in the attire. It is therefore imperative to don a bold time piece that will make you stand out while at the same time complementing your style. You can find a wide selection of luxury watches on http://www.essential-watches.com/.

Below is a selection of luxury watches that will say volumes about your sense of fashion:

The Timex watch

Timex is a classic watch that says you are cultured. A Timex also shows you are reliable. If you are wearing a Timex, your clothing should be classy, but not fancy. A close alternative to Timex is a Braun watch, especially one fitted with a chronograph.

Casio

A Casio says that you lead an active life and you require a reliable and durable watch. It could also say that you are more practical, and fashion is not the first thing on your mind. Your main goal when wearing a Casio will be correctness of time.

On the flipside, a Casio fits well with branded sports gear. If you are at a sports event, wearing a Casio as part of your sports attire will show you have high end taste.

One thing you must never do is pair your Casio with formal attire, even if you don’t care about fashion.

Rolex

It is a universally known fact that the Rolex is a very expensive watch. Because of this fact, you make a better statement about yourself if you are not showy about it.

Showing off your Rolex states that you lack class. One thing you need to know is that if you are wearing a Rolex, you don’t need to show off to get it noticed. People will just notice.

If you have a quietly-intense personality, the Rolex was made for you. This is because people who exude intensity approach things with an air of nonchalance. Pair your Rolex with a well-cut suit and your look will speak volumes.

IWC Schaffhausen

An IWC is a classic, but unlike the Timex, it has a rugged appearance about it. It is a great all-purpose watch that goes with all occasions.

If you usually find it difficult to pair watches with clothing, an IWC will make it easy for you and you will end up looking very classy without any effort at all.

Besides your ability to afford one, buying a luxury watch will make a positive fashion statement and portray your personality. A Timex might suit you better than a Rolex. At other times, a Casio might be better suited for the occasion. Try them out and decide which one says what you want to say about yourself.

Celebrities Going Gray!

Not only has the color gray been prominent in clothing and accessories for both men and women this year, but it has also crossed over into hair color. In the guys’ world, gray hair has been sort of a right of passage and deemed its male wearers as distinguished, rather than old. It has not been so for the females in society, who have been out-numbered by those still holding on to their original hair color, long after it has passed. Recently, however, gray is the new hair color of choice among the younger set.

Pink going grey Celebrities like George Clooney have sported gray locks and facial hair for years, without a flinch from the public and women have not waivered in their attraction to him since he played a young Medical Resident on the TV show ER. Then, women like Jamie Lee Curtis “gave up the bottle” and showed that she was comfortable with her image in a gray pixie cut. Today, there has been a surge of celebrities of all ages that have gone gray.

Foil Kimono Dress

One example is the Pop Rock Singer Pink, who has traded her bleach blonde spiky hair in for a shimmery soft, short hairdo in a beautiful steel gray. It actually goes great with her skin tone and dark eyes. The nose ring and multiple piercings add to the hip-ness, and here her hairs could match this glamorous Foil Kimono Dress care of swimsuitsforall.

Next singing celebrity to go over to the gray side is Adam Lambert. He has always been known for his unique looks and his new two-tone, spiked haircut is the perfect compliment to his charcoal and steel gray sports jacket, deep black button-down shirt, and his rounded sunglasses. He is the ultimate in Rocker Chic.

Lastly, actor Patrick Dempsey, who has been saving lives for years on the long-running TV show “Grey’s Anatomy”, has slid into the distinguished category with his salt and pepper hair, proving that you can still be “Mc-Dreamy” as you age.

Easter Time Celebrity Fashion

With Easter around the corner, I thought it was fitting to take a look at some of the celebrity fashion choices for the holiday. Since Easter is dominated by the bright colors of Spring, some of the clothing choices reflect the bright, cheerfulness of the holiday.

nick-cannon-pink-easter-suit

First on the Easter fashion list is Nick Cannon, who is the fashion forward host of America’s Got Talent. He is seen here in a 3 piece suit with the candy-like colors of a salmon pink jacket, tonal printed tie, robin’s egg blue trousers, and light blue vest. What color shoes do you wear with these pastel items?  A pair of light grey oxfords, of course!

easter-obama-family

Next, the First family is out for a stroll on Easter Day and looking good. President Obama is looking sharp in his light grey, window pane plaid suit with his baby blue dress shirt and medium blue tie. The President’s younger daughter Sasha is looking cute in her black dress with bright coral, scalloped accent piece. The matching check cardigan just pulls it all together. Mrs. Obama looks very elegant in her Prabal Gurung dress that is done in a satiny ivory fabric with soft, pleated layers, a duster-length overcoat with elbow sleeves and a grey floral design on the right midsection. Daughter Malia is rocking a tie dye-looking striped dress in black and white fabric and a purple cardigan for a nice pop of color.

Steve Harvey with Marjorie

Last, but not least, is daytime talk show host Steve Harvey and his wife Majorie. Steve wins the contest for best Easter colored clothing with his lilac purple, silk-looking sports jacket, black and lilac plaid tie, and ivory trousers. His wife Marjorie also hopped on the purple train with her frilly black and purple striped dress. Both of them are sporting the perfect jelly bean colors.

Three Awesome of Wedding Engagement Tips

Believe it or not, the wedding season approacheth! And from popping the question to picking out the ring to donning your groomly attired, the soon-to-be-betrothed proposer needs more than just a checklist for help. Thankfully, the wedding expert and founder of CaratsAndCake.com recently released a quick triplet of tips to help get through one of the hardest parts to planning of a matrimonial proposal: picking the engagement ring. Jess Levin’s three simple rules are:

ring-tips-min (1)

Cost is based on the 4 C’S: Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat

It goes without saying that one of the most important costs to pay mind when on the path to marriage is that of the rings (yes, plural). And just because the engagement ring isn’t The Ring, doesn’t mean the accessory first foray isn’t an investment. For instance, the cost of the engagement ring can vary vastly on four components: cut, color, clarity and carat. Consider how rare cuts, like circular, can drive up the price. and color matters since colorless diamonds are the most coveted and expensive. The clarity, and therefore price, of a diamond is measured on a spectrum from flawless to imperfect. Finally, Carat comes down to weight, in this case, the heavier the better.

Insure the ring

Now, seeing how someone can easily spend up to three months of hard earned coin on a piece of jewelry, it is extremely important to insure the ring. Imagine dropping it down sewer accidentally before you even present it – yikes!! You will need to get an appraisal from your jeweler, which you can often get before you pick up the ring! without coverage. Subtip: If you own a home, consider adding the ring to your current policy.

Decide if you want to have an over the top reveal or a simple heartfelt proposal

There are two types of proposals: the fireworks-champagne-rented-limo type and the simple/ straightforward option. And in all honesty, one doesn’t necessarily trump other – just ask yourself what would make the experience authentic and menaingful for your companion. Keep in mind that if you go the extravagant route, you might need to enlist some friends for help or even hire a proposal consultant (a very recent occupation development).
