Women of all ages are one of the targets. Women are known to have a great inclination to fashion and they think of everything that is color coordinated.

Wedding Preparation Prayers

Wedding Preparation Prayers

Wedding preparations can be overwhelming and endless it seems. Many brides and grooms by their side have had a meltdown prior to the wedding. If you can relate, you are not alone.

Be encouraged and take heart. Fear not! The best is yet to come. It has been said that marriage is like making mashed potatoes. First, you peel the potatoes. Secondly, you place them in hot water to boil. Thirdly, you mash them all up together until they become one.

Whatever stage of life you are currently in, I’m here to tell you that you’re going to make it. Maybe you are presently being peeled by life’s circumstances and wedding preparations up to your eyeballs. Perhaps you are now boiling in hot water and undergoing some emotional stress. Relationally we are all being brought closer together and smoothing out one another’s rough edges. The process however can be like crushing grapes to make wine. Nevertheless remember how delicious and intoxicating the wine can be once the grapes are crushed.

Life and love flows in seasons and stages. There are many circular parallels between nature and life itself. Perhaps you are currently enduring the winter season of your relationship and engagement. Realize your love has not died, but rather its roots are going deep and your love’s foundation being strengthened. Commitment surpasses romantic notions and fluctuating feelings. Often love is more of a decision than a feeling.

Death and life are always occurring simultaneously. Marital love that lasts a lifetime requires that we welcome and embrace a more intense type of relational interaction as we become one. That means you both must be committed to personal growth individually and together. Therefore when some things are identified as harmful to your marriage, you need to humbly repent of them and be willing to die to them. As you die to deadly habits and refine your character, you will resurrect and breathe fresh life into your marriage. The more you die to self, the more you together as one shall love and live.

Here are three wedding preparation prayers to pray together:

“Dear Lord, please help me to be humble, self-aware, and selfless in my love toward others. As we prepare for holy matrimony, prepare my heart and establish me in your holiness. Forgive me hurtful things done and said. Please kindly cleanse and forgive me. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. Help me to experience the love of my heavenly Father and mold me to be more like you. Holy Spirit help me to love myself and others unconditionally. Enable me to be loving, kind, peaceable, and compassionate. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

“Heavenly Father, the wedding details and planning is overwhelming as You know. Please have mercy on us and help us through it all. You instituted and encourage marriage in Your Word. We are endeavoring to love and obey You. As we do and plan for our wedding, please kindly empower, undergird, and …

I Want To Buy My Spouse A Gift To Show I’m Sorry For Cheating – What’s Best?

I Want To Buy My Spouse A Gift To Show I’m Sorry For Cheating – What’s Best?

I sometimes hear from spouses who want to offer some sort of gift to indicate how sorry they are for cheating or for having an affair. And yet, everything that they consider seems wrong. They want to get the perfect object that shows their sincerity in moving forward. But they aren’t sure what is appropriate.

I heard from a husband who said: “I cheated on my wife and she found out. Honestly, I was considering leaving my wife and being with the other woman. But once my wife found out and I saw the pain that my actions caused her, I changed my mind. Seeing her so vulnerable made me remember the woman I first fell in love with and I decided that I owed it to both of us to try to save our marriage. Much to my shock, she agreed to give me that chance. The fact that she is willing to take another chance on me humbles me. I want to get her something to show her how grateful I am. I asked one of her best friends what she might like and the friend told me that I am treading on thin ground because my wife is going to read too much into anything that I might chose. Is she right? I don’t know what to do at this point.”

What Your Spouse Really Wants: While I think it’s touching when a spouse wants to show their love for the other, I agreed with the friend that the wrong choice could make the situation worse. I need to be honest right now. As a spouse who has been cheated on, I can tell you that what your spouse wants isn’t jewelry or one more trinket. What your spouse really wants is to have their marriage back. They want to feel like they can trust you again. They want reassurance that you still desire them and that you won’t cheat again. They want to feel your genuine affection. They want for you to do whatever you need to do in order to help them heal or to recover from this. Frankly, these things would be more meaningful than any trinket could even be.

Make Sure That Any Gift Shows Your Spouse How Much You Understand And Appreciate Them: I do understand and respect that you want to make a gesture to show your spouse how important they are to you and how committed you are moving forward. In that case, you need to give this serious consideration. You don’t want to send the wrong idea. You don’t want to just give them a “guilt gift” that you didn’t think very deeply about. Many men will think that they will be covered if they just buy their wife expensive jewelry. I suppose this works for some women, but many wives will assume that you think that you can just buy your way out of this and that is not the message that you want to send.

It’s my …

Brass Jewellery – All You Ever Needed to Know

Brass Jewellery – All You Ever Needed to Know

Brass is fast becoming one of the most popular materials in fashion jewellery, seen on the catwalk and the high street and the shopping mall. Typically, brass tended to be used in jewellery for a touch of cheap ‘class’, because with its muted yellow tone, it looks a little like gold. But nowadays, the beauty of brass is appreciated in its own right.

Of course, brass is also a cheaper option than gold or silver, and in these tough economic times, that counts for a lot. But increasingly, designers are sitting up and taking notice of the instrinsic beauty of brass, whether it’s in matt tones, highly-polished pendants, or just used in necklace chains.

What is brass?

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. If you’re confused about the difference between bronze and brass, bronze is principally an alloy of copper and tin.

Brass has good acoustic properties, which is why it’s used in so many musical instruments like the trumpet or trombone. Brass is also favoured for uses such as locks, gears and doorknobs. And now brass is finding favour in fashion jewellery.

Uses in Jewellery

Brass is widely used in chains for necklaces or bracelets. But you’ll also find it is increasingly used in pendants, and mixed with other substances, including beads and glass, to create stunning contemporary designs. Although it is commonly associated with a ‘vintage’ look, brass is now taking on new forms and acquiring a reputation for being modern.

Brass jewellery can also be dainty and light, and not just chunky. There’s a common misconception that it’s a material that’s weighty, but contemporary jewellery designers are proving that it’s as flexible as silver or gold.

Looking After Your Brass Jewellery

One of the great things about brass is that it is relatively resistant to tarnishing, and taking care of your brass jewellery is really pretty simple. That makes it a great material to use in fashion jewellery.

When it comes to cleaning, maintaining your brass jewellery is straightforward. Firstly, wash in hot soapy water; this simple (and cheap!) cleaning method may be enough to get your brass clean. To clean brass with lemon juice, you can either use it neat, or mixed with vinegar or salt or baking soda. Alternatively, you can use either sour milk, natural unflavoured yoghurt, or whey to clean your brass.

Yes, seriously, natural products offer a genuinely effective way of keeping your brass jewellery clean and blemish-free!

A Fashion Jewellery Trend that’s Here To Stay!

Nowadays, brass is no longer associated with door knobs, trumpets and locks. Fashion jewellery that incorporates this beautiful metal is fast acquiring status as celebrities and designers flock to wear brass.…

4 Constructive Personal Leadership Styles

4 Constructive Personal Leadership Styles

Having a feel for your organisational culture, if you’re a CEO or company director, is a great aid in augmenting higher performance outcomes, but these tools also have personal and situational applications too.

Taking the Human Synergistics organisational culture measurement tool, we can customise the twelve styles to make them relevant personally.

There are three core areas: the constructive (blue); the passive/defensive (green); and the aggressive/defensive (red), each of which has four definable characterising features (shown in italics under the three key headings below).

Constructive:

Our learned personal behaviour should be mostly manifested from these styles. We can push for excellence in achievement, yet counter or temper it with the humanistic-encouraging and affiliative styles. This about trying our inclusive bests and taking a team with us, if necessary, in achieving transformational self-actualising goals.

Passive/defensive:

These are the least favoured from an organisational viewpoint, yet from a personal standpoint there are certainly times and places for them. Humility is occasionally shown in approval and being dependent can counteract too much independence toward a sense of interdependence.

Both conventional and avoidant styles, however, are not desirable at all, as personally they add nothing but detract considerably. Consistent avoidant behaviour, for instance, is a sign of rampant denial–a sign of a hopeless life.

Aggressive/defensive:

Not far behind the passive/defensive styles mentioned above, the aggressive/defensive styles need to be kept in check, as they make a person appear ignorant, arrogant and overpowering. Rather than exhibiting our personal power we should hone our influence.

We should occasionally oppose thoughts and ideas, but doing so constructively, not negatively. The oppositional and competitive person is seen as a road-block who wants to win at all costs. We want also to steer clear of perfectionism in our approach to life, as we quickly dispense with trusting people and get too detail-focused.

The Best Styles: Constructive… “achievement | self-actualising | humanistic-encouraging | affiliative”

The constructive styles are the main area for setting goals around, as we don’t want to be overly characterised by any of the other eight defensive styles, barring possibly an appropriate i.e. situational use of the ‘oppositional,’ ‘competitive,’ ‘approval,’ and ‘dependent’ styles. Hence, the remaining ‘conventional,’ ‘avoidance,’ ‘power,’ and ‘perfectionist’ styles should be shunned.

Being predominantly ‘blue,’ or assertive, in style as opposed to being overly ‘red’ (aggressive) or ‘green’ (submissive) is a good way to live a wise life. We should thus seek to very personally achieve and self-actualise ourselves (our goals), and bring this to bear with people-friendly humanistic-encouraging and affiliative methods with others (our methods in achieving our goals).

Porter’s Four Corners Revisited

Porter’s Four Corners Revisited

Michael Porter’s Four Corners Model is a great tool that is used for better clarity of competitive intelligence (CI), as compared to a SWOT Analysis. Although the Four Corners Model has been around for some time, it is just beginning to become accepted as the go to method of forecasting the competitions next moves. As part of any great CI analysis process, using the Four Corners Model will allow companies to get actionable data on the direction that their competition is headed. This is an advantage over the widely adopted model of the snapshot or static view that can be provided by a SWOT analysis; competitor’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats.

By tying the capabilities of a competitor to their underlying motivations for business success, the Four Corners Model is able provide the necessary and actionable CI information with remarkable success. Unlike the SWOT analysis that only gives you snapshot, albeit a very valuable glimpse, the Four Corners Model is able to give a trend or predictive value of your competition’s possible course of action. Drawing the data and analysis from financial goals, company culture, past business philosophies, current organizational structure, and all of the other relevant CI sources, the model is able to trend the competitor’s strengths, weaknesses, perceived culture, values, and assumptions on their current goals.

By looking at the motivations, capabilities, and assumptions, the Four Corner’s Model for CI analysis can provide organizations with actionable predictions of the future actions or reactions of one or more of their competitors. The accuracy of these predictions depend on the overall quality of data that is put into the analysis, as well as the volume of data. As with any analysis, the key component to accuracy of the end product, is the accuracy of the input data. Using the Four Corner’s Model in combination with the SWOT analysis and a range of other CI analysis tools will give the best results, and provide your company with a range of actionable data regarding your competitors.

Working to develop a competitive intelligence process that includes the Four Corner’s Model will ensure that you have at least one predictive tool available. While it is great to know what your competition is doing at the present moment, it is even more valuable to have an idea of what they are going to do next, and how they would/will react in the future. It is important to iterate often with your CI process, so that you can have the very best actionable information when you need it to make the most educated decisions.…

Teenage Fashion History

Teenage Fashion History

The word “teenager” was first coined in the 1950s, a time when teenage fashion had found its place and a niche market was created. Teenagers were now a closed group with their own feelings, style, beliefs, and ways of perceiving life; that is, their own personality.

Malcolm Barnard says in his book Fashion as Communication, “Fashion and clothing have always been explained as forms of communication”. Teenagers have now their own voice to speak their mind and they manage to do it through fashion.

Being teenager is being rebellious. If you check out the decades of teen fashion you might see that they have proven to be a way of rebelling out.

Back in the fifties, when teen fashion firs appeared, it would follow the famous look of James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause”. Although, their clothes did not differ too much from the general trend in fashion, girls could be seen wearing dresses fluffed out with petticoats and crinolines under the skirt. Boys wore tight Levis, Chinos, white or black tight shirts, as well as loafers or Converse shoes with leather jackets.

Fashion is totally influenced and “manipulated” by history. The historical events put a hallmark on fashion decades, as the clothes reveal people’s lifestyle, conceptions, and even prejudices.

In the 1960s, fashion and music started to go hand in hand. Pop and rock music began to influence fashion in a way like never before. Fashion icons, like The Beatles, or rebellious rock stars, like Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger, were speaking on behalf of the younger generation and they represented the main force.

In the 1970s, the disco era was loud and colorful. The fabrics of the decade were polyester, acrylic and lycra. Woman’s dresses were getting to their knees and men wore bell bottoms, jackets and gold chains. Platform shoes were big on the dance floor and shirt patterns were dizzying.

The 1980s came with the aerobic craze. The ultimate combination was tight, shiny stretch leggings paired with an over-sized, off-the-shoulder sweatshirt. The pop singer, Madonna was at her peak at that time and she influenced teenagers sense of style very much.

The 1990s, in terms of teen fashion, represented a mixture of a whole lot of different styles. Boy bands and girl bands of pop music were pretty eclectic in terms of clothes and they were admired by the young generation. It was the time of the platform shoe again which shows up in many shoes from sandals to tennis shoes. The colors are dramatic or pastel, while the classic color black was still used for dramatic effects in fashion.

Nowadays, teen clothing is very comfortable in all ways. The basic trends are vintage blue jeans with a trendy. Teenagers clothes need to be accessible in terms of prices, as young people’s expenditure is pretty limited within the amounts of money collected in their piggy banks.…
