Pamella Roland presented her 2019 FALL/WINTER collection during NYFW this Thursday and she not only exceeded expectations, but she dared to introduce different styles. The stunning collection was inspired by Tiffany glass and intricate stained-glass windows, which reflects Roland’s elegance and artistic appreciation.

"Tiffany glass and intricate stained-glass windows are the inspiration for this season’s collection," said the designer according to Dailymail.com.

The concepts that inspired her are displayed through embroideries, trim silhouettes, and prints. The collection is filled with a blend of bold colors along with window-like linear techniques that signify Tiffany stained glass. This collection reflects sensuality and femininity, where women can feel empowered and confident while wearing comfortable pieces that enhance their unique beauty.

Pamella mentioned that part of the inspiration came from listening to what her costumers wanted. She wanted to please them while incorporating her vision in each material used in the collection. The different elements such as colorful feathers, pearls, 3D floral appliques, and ornate metallic threadwork along with new techniques made this fall collection a ‘daring’ collection that Pamella enjoyed creating.

10 Daily Tips to Prevent "Chapped" Lips

Cinderella Bridez Team

As Makeup Artists, one of our challenges when working with clients through winter months is that most of the time they have chapped or dry lips. This makes applying a straight lip line, or having the lip color look smooth challenging. This is because we don't have a flat sure to work on leaving the lips looking flaky, dry and really not pretty. Below are 10 things you can do daily to prevent this from happening during the winter months.

  1. Turn on your humidifier at night- Let's face it, the heat and staying in orders more during the winter months take a toll on your skin- extra moisture in the air while you sleep will do good for keeping your lips as well as the rest of the skin on your body plump and hydrated. Think humid like the summer months and how moist your skin looks. 
  2. Drink that water- refer to our last blog post on why and how much, this works just as good for your lips!
  3. Exfoliate- the easiest is while in the shower take your index finger and rub back and forth on your lips, the rubbing motion will get rid of that dead skin on your lips without adding anything extra except your finger and the water. Daily will keep your lips nice and smooth.
  4. Place a lip balm in your bag, desk and coat and apply several times a day. Having it withing hands reach will make it easy to make sure you are applying. Something that has a natural oil works best (shea butter, almond oil) 
  5. Before you wash your face, apply a lip balm because your cleanser, if it has any type of salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide may disrupt the PH levels on your lips.
  6. Don't lick your lips, this tends to dry them out rather than hydrate them. Your saliva has acids that are great to break down your foods but can wreak havoc on the thin skin on your lips.
  7. If your lips are dry- stay away from the matte lip colors, liquid lipsticks and anything else that is drying. Use products that have lip conditioners are are labeled hydrating for now until your lips are back in shape.
  8. Don't drink OJ, Grapefruit juices, or anything else that is acidic/citrus until your dryness goes away.
  9. If you are out in the cold weather, wear a scarf over your mouth the extreme temperatures can dry you out as well. 
  10. VASELINE! Yes it works, you can use this on your lips, feet, elbows and anywhere else you see dry flaky skin.
     

Why Drink 8 Glasses a Day?

Cinderella Bridez Team

Truth: Water is essential for good health but the amount you need varies from person to person... Check out this article from MayoClinic Below on why. 

How much water should you drink each day? It's a simple question with no easy answers. Studies have produced varying recommendations over the years, but in truth, your water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how active you are and where you live.

Although no single formula fits everyone, knowing more about your body's need for fluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WATER

Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.

Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired

What about the advice to drink 8 glasses a day?

Everyone has heard the advice, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day." That's about 1.9 liters, which isn't that different from the Institute of Medicine recommendations. Although the "8 by 8" rule isn't supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it's easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," because all fluids count toward the daily total.

Factors that influence water needs

You may need to modify your total fluid intake depending on how active you are, the climate you live in, your health status, and if you're pregnant or breast-feeding.

  • Exercise. If you exercise or engage in any activity that makes you sweat, you need to drink extra water to compensate for the fluid loss. An extra 1.5 to 2.5 cups (400 to 600 milliliters) of water should suffice for short bouts of exercise, but intense exercise lasting more than an hour (for example, running a marathon) requires more fluid intake. How much additional fluid you need depends on how much you sweat during exercise, and the duration and type of exercise.
  • Intense exercise. During long bouts of intense exercise, it's best to use a sports drink that contains sodium, as this will help replace sodium lost in sweat and reduce the chances of developing hyponatremia, which can be life-threatening. Also, continue to replace fluids after you're finished exercising.
  • Environment. Hot or humid weather can make you sweat and requires additional intake of fluid. Heated indoor air also can cause your skin to lose moisture during wintertime. Further, altitudes greater than 8,200 feet (2,500 meters) may trigger increased urination and more rapid breathing, which use up more of your fluid reserves.
  • Illnesses or health conditions. When you have fever, vomiting or diarrhea, your body loses additional fluids. In these cases, you should drink more water. In some cases, your doctor may recommend oral rehydration solutions, such as Gatorade, Powerade or CeraLyte. You may also need increased fluid intake if you develop certain conditions, including bladder infections or urinary tract stones. On the other hand, some conditions, such as heart failure and some types of kidney, liver and adrenal diseases, may impair excretion of water and even require that you limit your fluid intake.
  • Pregnancy or breast-feeding. Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding need additional fluids to stay hydrated. Large amounts of fluid are used especially when nursing. The Institute of Medicine recommends that pregnant women drink about 10 cups (2.3 liters) of fluids daily and women who breast-feed consume about 13 cups (3.1 liters ) of fluids a day.

Beyond the tap: Other sources of water

You don't need to rely only on what you drink to meet your fluid needs. What you eat also provides a significant portion of your fluid needs. On average, food provides about 20 percent of total water intake. For example, many fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and spinach, are 90 percent or more water by weight.

In addition, beverages such as milk and juice are composed mostly of water. Even beer, wine and caffeinated beverages — such as coffee, tea or soda — can contribute, but these should not be a major portion of your daily total fluid intake. Water is still your best bet because it's calorie-free, inexpensive and readily available.

Staying safely hydrated

Generally, if you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow — and measures about 6.3 cups (1.5 liters) or more a day if you were to keep track — your fluid intake is probably adequate. If you're concerned about your fluid intake or have health issues, check with your doctor or a registered dietitian. He or she can help you determine the amount of water that's right for you.

To ward off dehydration and make sure your body has the fluids it needs, make water your beverage of choice. It's also a good idea to:

  • Drink a glass of water or other calorie-free or low-calorie beverage with each meal and between each meal
  • Drink water before, during and after exercise

Although uncommon, it is possible to drink too much water. When your kidneys are unable to excrete the excess water, the electrolyte (mineral) content of the blood is diluted, resulting in low sodium levels in the blood, a condition called hyponatremia. Endurance athletes, such as marathon runners who drink large amounts of water, are at higher risk of hyponatremia. In general, though, drinking too much water is rare in healthy adults who eat an average American diet.

Wedding Day Planning

To ensure an absolutely gorgeous you, adhere to the following beauty tips:

  • Request a trial before your main event(s).  You deserve the look of your dreams!  Your makeup artist’s goal is to serve you to get that accomplished and properly planned out.
  • With makeup, more is NOT better…brighter is NOT lighter.  A professional will know which of your native features to enhance as well as those that you may want to conceal for a flawless appearance.
  • A matte look is always appropriate for events with a lot of photography and ensures a durable cosmetic application.  
  • The make-up brand chosen must be designed for longevity and performance.  You want to remain radiant throughout your affair.
  • Ask someone in your wedding party to assist you in carrying a pressed powder and lip color for touch-ups.  You will be luminous from beginning to “happily ever after”.

Daily Goals

  • A balanced diet and plenty of water (8 glasses/day) consumption will aide in maintaining healthy and hydrated skin.
  • Daily cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine is a must.  Wash your face in the morning and night to eliminate makeup, extra oils, pollution and harsh particles from the environment.  The toner gives your skin what it needs to reveal a fresh, matte finish prepping and controlling oil; boosting your skin’s ability to stay perfectly balanced throughout the day.  Utilize a moisturizer with at least SPF 15.  Remember that oil and moisture and two different things so even if you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize.  If you use a product that can moisturize and block sunrays you are succeeding! 
  • Do not sleep with makeup on!  Makeup can clog your pores.  Remove your makeup daily thoroughly to prevent breakouts. 
  • Rest!  The average person needs approximately 8 hours of sleep every day.  This process’ purpose is to rejuvenate your body and your skin – the largest organ in your body!  Your skin can look pale, dull and be prone to more breakouts when you do not sleep sufficiently.
