5 Stylish Accessories for Winter

It can be difficult to stay fashionable in the dead of winter. When you're battling a snowstorm or trying not to slip on the ice outside your apartment, the last thing on your mind is style. These five accessories, however, make looking good as easy as throwing something on before you leave the house. Read on to learn how you can remain flawless no matter how the weather tests you. 

1: Scarves 
The ubiquitous winter accessory, scarves can be worn in a delightful number of ways depending on material, length and thickness. Female runway models are most often seen in cable-knit scarves; gentlemen usually prefer cashmere or wool. 

2: Pillbox Hats 
Easily dressed up or down, beanies are one of the most handy adornments of wintertime. Pair them with jeans for a casual look or use them to top off a sophisticated ensemble. 

3: Leather Gloves 
Leather jackets can be hit-or-miss depending on your overall ensemble, but a good pair of gloves matches everything, especially if they're in a neutral color like black or beige. 

4: Fur 
You don't have to purchase a full-length fur coat to rock the look of minxes and foxes. Fur vests, for example, can be found for a fraction of the cost, and fur hats and gloves are warm accessories for any outfit. 

5: Earmuffs 
For the coverage of a hat without the static electricity that ruins your careful hairdos, earmuffs are a must-have during winter. Buy a pair for every day of the week and never worry about frizz again!

Cheap Curtains that Give Aesthetic Appeal to Your Home

Buying a cheap item for your home improvement does not mean that you have to sacrifice the aesthetic value of your home. As a budget conscious homemaker, your task is to shop without draining your husband’s hard-earned money. As a conscientious wife and mother to your kids, you have other home necessities that you need to prioritize. But living in a bare home can be boring, so you are forced to stretch your budget for home decorating.

Cheap curtains are available in online stores and you can always find best quality curtains for your kitchen, bathroom windows and your sleeping quarters. When you buy the curtains, buy those designs that truly reflect your style and taste. Try to figure out the window covering designs and imagine how your room will exactly look like when you adorn the cheap curtain.

The technique on how to find the best buy is to spend time in searching them. One hour is not enough to enable you to find the curtain that can change the overall look of your home. Devote a few hours to make an online search and mind you, you’ll be surprised at the result.

Some online shops are offering discounts for their items to give way to new designs. This is the time that you can buy as many curtains for your windows because this seldom happens. Your patience will pay off during your search as you will be able to find coupon codes that offer 10 to 35% discounts for cheap yet high quality curtains.

Living with a meager income should not deter you from getting the best buy for your home improvements. Compare the prices offered from other websites and grab every promo that is offered to customers. A word of caution: don’t just grab curtains that do not complement with the architectural design of your home and do not match your needs.

February Fun in the Snow

Our first grader said that it is not supposed to snow in February, and I told her it could since it is still winter. As we know that the east coast and midwest were snowed in this past few weeks. We also had our share but not as much and melted right away after a day. So when we had that snowy Sunday, our little girls were having a blast playing outside. Took some pictures of them in between shoveling our driveway. 



They both enjoyed making snowman and the big sister was pulling her little sissy on the sled that we got when we were in Leavenworth. I thought we won't be able to use it this winter here. I like the snow and how the white just glistens, but the freezing cold is too much for me to handle, and also driving on an icy road is really stressing me out :-)

What to Look for in Sweet Sixteen Dresses

 Children grow up so fast and it would be too late for you to realize that your baby is now a lady. How time flies fast and when she turns sixteen she wants to have a unique party for her classmates and friends. You have planned everything from the catering service, physical arrangement, venue and other important matters. But have you thought what your daughter would like to wear on her natal day?

Her dress for the party should be in harmony with the ceremony to welcome your daughter as a young woman. Usually a tiara is placed on her head by the mother as a symbol of her womanhood. To make the ceremony more meaningful, let your daughter wear a lovely sweet sixteen dress. JenJenHouse.com, the maker of trendy and classic dresses for debut and coming out parties have something to offer for your daughter.

The sweet sixteen dress come in various designs and clothing materials to match the motif of your daughter’s party. It can be a midi, maxi, mini or a knee-length dress. Let your daughter decide what to wear so she will feel comfortable when wearing the dress during the party. She can opt to wear a taffeta princess V-neck dress or a princess halter mini taffeta dress. Whether your daughter is skinny or chubby, she can always wear those lovely dresses as they come in different sizes.

Sweet sixteen dresses are specially created to turn your teenager as the loveliest, if not the prettiest woman of the night. The party can be formal or semi-formal but either case, the dress will not go out of style. They are comfortable to wear because the fabric is soft and the embellishments are sewn painstakingly so no applique or sequence will fall out from the dress while the birthday girl is dancing the night away. Aside from her dress, you should take into account what your daughter would look like when she wears the tiara. Make sure the hairstyle and accessories will match with her sweet sixteen dress.
