Plus Size Wedding Dress Tips!

When determining the kind of wedding dress that is right for you,determining your specific body shape is a good place to start. Perhaps you carry more weight around your mid-section and chest than you do your lower half, otherwise known as “top-heavy.” If this is the case, consider having a playful hemline that swishes about the knee instead of your ankles so you can show off your lovely calves. Your overall look doesn’t have to favor one half of your body, so you can lean towards embellishments being on the skirt while you keep jewelry simple.

There’s a New Auction Site in Town

There’s a new auction company launching called Auctionopia.com for anyone looking for an alternative to ebay.
