    Oscars, Grammys' & Golden Globe Dresses to Wedding Aisles Part 2

    in Women

    I don't think there will be a clear cut winner of the ten best dresses from the Oscar Red Carpet this year. I think I will have to borrow some dresses from both the Golden Globes and The Grammy's this year. This year's Oscar dresses were not as traditionally classic as years past and perhaps that is a good thing. Maybe women should have to be stuffed in a dress just to make it designer newsworthy. 

    Because of my surprise I will also include dresses on my ten best list from all three Awards Shows. This is a first on my part, but tell me if you agree that the Oscars were not all that you thought they could be. Let's compare notes. If you prefer to read about them, I will also have my list on my website: budgetweddingsnyc.com along with some choices for honeymoon attire depending on the theme of your wedding. 

    Bring your list and compare.

    2014 Emmy Dresses - Weddings

    in Self Help

    Tonight's show is a very special look at last Monday night's Creative Arts - Emmys dresses that are NOT just bridesmaid fair. Obviously this is not a rush show, other than I thought after I journaled about it I thought you've been wondering about the dresses, too.

    in Fashion

    This episode is about how young girls are dressing just to get likes and followers on social media. Are the parents to blame because they are the ones purchasing the clothes? How do we stop this trend or is it to late? Is social media to blame?

    Oscar's Red Carpet to Wedding Aisles

    in Women

    Welcome to my annual after Oscar review of the dresses that walked the red carpet of the formerly Grauman's Chinese Theatre. It will always remain that name to me whomever buys it in the future. Did you see the Oscars this year? And if you did, did you have 5 - 10 dress picks that could be wedding dresses in June? Do you sense that I may not? I was ...well... underwhelmed with the dresses this year. I am disappointedly surprised that that is the case. Yes, there were a few, but not as many as I had hoped or than that there were in past years. Was it because Mad Max won so many awards? Maybe it was an anti-glam year. Mmmmh. Something to think about, to be sure.

    Join me and you be the judge as to whether or not this year's Oscars' walk down the red carpet was exciting enough to take the dresses from Red Carpet to Wedding Aisles in June 2016. You be the judge.

    The Virtuous Woman Mindset

    in Women

    A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.  She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing.  She's like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises.  She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.  She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden.  First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.  She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.  She's skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.  She's quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.  She doesn't worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.  She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks.  Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers. She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.  Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.  When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say.  She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive.  Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise:  "Many women have done wonderful things,but you've outclassed them all!" Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.  Give her everything she deserves! Adorn and decorate her life with praises!

    Although a relatively young company, Bikini Luxe has risen quickly in the ranks of online fashion, stocking well over 2,500 different bikinis and one-piece swimsuits.  While primarily focused on luxury swimwear, the company also sells other designer clothing items and accessories, such as designer active wear, luxury resort wear, jewelry and dresses.  It has grown to the third largest online swimwear retailer, now carrying such well-known brands as Frankie’s Bikinis, Agua Bendita, Beach Bunny Swimwear, Michi NYC, and Shahida Parides.

    Looking and feeling good: There's a niche, just for you!

    in Women

    A retired teacher for disabled adults, Anita Beck has always loved sewing and interior design.  From both "loves," Nickky's Niche Designs was born.  

    As women, we generally seem to have a need for comfort and functionality.  We see this when we consider the rooms we use the most and the clothing we wear the most. In response to these perceived needs, Anita created a line of garments that are not only wrinkle resistant but also comfortable and flattering for today's active lifestyles. Each of her designs, including dresses, skirts, slacks, shawls, vests, jackets, and formal wear, is hand created. Anita says, "my designs travel well and so do I.  As a mobile boutique, I can bring the store right to your door."

    Room makeovers are another aspect of her overall dynamic creations where she implements the same design concepts of fun, comfort, affordability, and functionality.  Anita says she feels blessed to be able to do the things she enjoys.   

    To preview Nikky's Niche Designs, please visit www.nikky'sniche.net.  Then, join our podcast Monday, April 11th at 3:30 pm, PST.  To speak directly with Anita, during the show, phone (646) 716-8344.

    Men are From Mars & Women are from Venus & FREE PAST LIFE AND PSYCHIC READINGS!!

    in Spirituality

    Men and women are so different and this means they literally see and hear things differently as well.  I am going to point this out which may not be so obvious to you.  This show is for men and women.  Men do not get it when a woman is interested.  Women read into things men say so literally and they don't get it. Are you chasing someone who is not interested in you? Women often think that men are visual which they are, however, the way you look is not gong to get you that second date.  Even though we are in 2016 men still have some old fashoned ways about them and if you elude sex this is what they are going to think.  The way a woman dresses and presents herself including the pictures she sends to a man can wreck any possible relationship if that picture appears provacative.  This is not what a man is looking for in a wife and the mother of his children.  You just lost all respect right there. If a man would send a picture of himself to you in his underwear what would you think? Most women would never contact that man again so it does work both ways. The women or girl next door look is appealing.  Showing that you have morals is appealing if you want a long lasting relationship.  As for words - Men will say anything to get you into bed but that's all you get. Women will say more romantic things including, "I like you" but a man hears that as, "I like you as a friend." 

    Men and women need to raise their standards period but also recognize the differences between the sexes. Men don't want to be used for their money. As we reach an age where the younger generation have been entitled it's going to be harder.  FREE PAST LIFE AND PSYCHIC READINGS ON SHOW!! SPECIAL PRICE $25.00/1hour telephone session.
