Get your facts right about Rose Gold Jewelry!

Rose gold is created when copper is alloyed with yellow gold. The yellow gold acquires a pinkish and warm color with the addition of copper. The rosy color is directly impacted by the addition of copper and more copper leads to a more intense and rosy color. Gold is a rather soft and delicate metal and must therefore be alloyed with some other metal to be fit to be used in making jewelry.

What is a karat?
A karat is the unit for the measurement of the purity of gold. If a piece of gold jewelry has 24K or 24 karats as its measure of purity, it is said that the jewelry is made of pure gold. One karat equals 4.16 percent gold. If a piece of jewelry contains 18k gold, it means it is made of 75 percent gold. The rest 25 percent is said to be made of some other metal or alloy. A piece of gold which has a gold content higher than 18k is considered to be too soft for making jewelry.

What makes rose gold rose?
The color of the Rose Gold Jewelry is directly dependent on the amount of copper used in making the gold jewelry. The most subtle rose color is found in pink gold. Pink gold gives off a radiance of gold more than pink. Rose gold is more intense in color than pink gold because of higher copper content in Red gold jewelry. The highest copper content happens to be in Red gold and it therefore has the deepest and the most intense color of all. However, it is not actually red. None of these above were actually red or pink in color.

Uses
There are a number of styles in jewelry that are perfect for using Rose gold. These are not restricted to merely women’s jewelry rather extent to men’s jewelry too. Its sophisticated and warm color makes it a perfect metal to be used in making watches. Other accessories such as bracelets, rings, necklaces etc are also widely made with the use of rose gold jewelry. Interlocking rings, Russian wedding rings, are popularly made with the use of white, yellow and rose gold. This gold is also widely used as an accent metal in many kinds of jewelry. It is a clear reflection of the ability of the metal to mix along well with other metals. As a setting for stones, rose gold works best with diamonds and earth tone-colored gemstones in shades of yellow, brown, orange, and red.

Common skin care mistakes we tend to make!

Let us admit that we all do mistakes and we are quite afraid to admit those mistakes too. Skin care is quite confusing. Take a look down the beauty and skin care aisle at any drugstore, and you’re bound to feel overwhelmed. The same holds true for the rows upon rows of glittering counters in department stores with their beautiful, expensive bottles. They all sound amazing. They all tout their incredible benefits to make your skin smooth, blemish free, taut, and ageless. Of course, when it comes down to it, these miracles in a bottle are often not all they are hyped up to be. Realize it or not, there is a lot that you do throughout your day that impacts the look and feel of your skin. In any event, here are some of the more common skin care mistakes that you yourself may just be guilty of!

  • While the makeup in your cabinet probably won’t land you in the emergency room, it can still harm your skin if you forget to remove it every night. For one thing, makeup can trap dirt and oil, holding it against the skin overnight and clogging pores. So, removing makeup is the first step toward cleaning your skin, which is vital to maintaining a healthy complexion. Of course, when it comes to cleaning, there can be too much of a good thing.
  • As we get older, I am a firm believer that skin treatments can be very beneficial for keeping a youthful glow. A regular facial to remove dead skin cells and hydrate skin works wonders. Micro-needling treatments, especially when combined with hydrating agents such as hyaluronic acid and anti-oxidants can really boost skin glow. The key is to meet with a skin care specialist and plan a treatment programme that includes the best possible skin care regime for your skin.
  • Skin is the body’s largest organ and it craves moisture. Hydrated skin is healthier, fuller, smoother, and younger in overall appearance. This is just one of the many reasons that regular and ample water intake is so important for the body. So too, is moisturizing. Even oily skin requires the right formulation of moisturizer applied regularly. In fact, it may benefit even more, as skin will compensate for lack of proper moisture by producing even more oil.

Wake up and make up, No!


How many of us just get up, dress up and rush to the washroom. Well, many of us move out of the bed and instantaneous rush out and get ready. We keep hitting the snooze button on and off , Do you also hit the snooze button countless times before finally dragging yourself out of bed, or grab your phone from your nightstand and immediately scroll through every social media app for half an hour? Do you sleep in as late as you can and then rush to get ready, or wake up early to eat breakfast and zone out? Which of those things are good, bad, or in between as far as setting yourself up for success? Everyone has their own, unique morning routine but if you look at the mornings of some of the most successful people in any industry, there are definitely some common threads. So here are some tips or you can say advice I would like to offer you so that you have a refreshing morning.

Create a routine and keep it simple, if your morning routine is basically the same every day, you’ll go through it quickly and efficiently, and free up your mind for other things. If the routine which you have decided is right for you then it will definitely be a good morning and a healthy day.

Meditation also offers some amusing benefits to your body, with all of the distractions and technology begging for your attention from the second you wake up, taking even just five minutes to isolate and meditate can make all the difference in the world.

Show gratitude, rather than wake up and immediately start thinking about everything you have to do, or yesterday’s stresses, think about what you have to be grateful for — even if it’s as small as being grateful that your favorite cereal is stocked in your kitchen.

Try to wake up early, it can be very tempting to wake up at the last possible minute before you absolutely must start getting ready, but you’ll get more out of your morning if you wake up early. Even if it is super hard to take that first step out of bed and even self-proclaimed night owls can benefit from getting an early start to the day!

Choose a Hat according to your face shape!

In this scorching heat, we all love to wear glares, hats, scarf and etc. These accessories do look classy on each one of us without a doubt. We all want to look upscale and enthralling, but very few of us know how to look distinct and amazing in a jiffy. Also Traveling with a hat is the hardest thing to accomplish. The hat virtually needs its own suitcase. When traveling it is probably better to choose a hat that travels well and can be squished or folded in a suitcase without getting ruined, so it is quite important to keep certain things in mind before choosing a hat for oneself and look out for all the aspects, if they are being fulfilled or not. So, let us check out the different face shape and how well it seems to suit on that face type. Check it out:

Diamond face cut

The heart and diamond shaped faces have very narrow jaw lines so avoid any shape that is too wide at the forehead, this will only make your jaw and chin look more narrow. Instead choose a style that has a bit more of a narrower brim, and sits closer to the head.
Round Shape

A round-face is often short and wide; therefore, it is wise to choose a hat with a high crown, this way the hat will add height, therefore balancing out your face shape. Look for a hat with certain height to look outstanding.
Square Shape

The square-shaped face is short and angular with usually a very wide jaw-line. Choose irregular-shaped-brims to narrow your face. Cock your hat at an angle to offset your angles. Choose any shape or brim with irregular shape and this would go with your face.
