|4. NO SWEAT
Whether your wearing sandals or dress shoes with socks, foot odor and sweat can
be a problem. Instead of using powder which can leave a white mess on clothes,
shoes or feet, opt for the Arm&Hammer Invisible Foot Spray Powder.
It neutralizes stinky odor, absorbs moisture and keeps you feeling fresh all day with a
burst of cool fragrance. The best part? - it's talc-free, cake-free and goes on totally
No more sliding in your heels from sweaty feet!
|3. NO DRY SKIN
No matter what style of dress you have dry skin doesn't look chic, so properly
hydrate your body. If you want more than a basic benefits try Nivea Skin Firming
Hydration Body Lotion. According to Harpers Bazaar it's a favorite of Meghan
Markle. Not only does it provide immediately moisturize but it also firm and tones
your skin in as little as two weeks. If she can have any product she wants and
chooses the Nivea, then it must be a great choice!
6. NO MANNERS - (DON'T FORGET THEM)
You don't want to be that person with the people skills of a leaf blower by forgetting to be considerate of your bridal party.
They have helped you achieve the wedding of your dreams!
They've gone to boring wedding rehearsals, rented uncomfortable tuxes and even dyed their shoes to match a dress that'll
only be worn once. They deserve the dignity of a proper thank you gift. Something like a compact mirror, watch or a fashion
jewelry set from the Liz Claiborne collection at JCPenney can be just the thing to show your appreciation.
|5. NO SURPRISES
You plan for everything but mishaps can still happen, so be prepared by having
an emergency kit. Some things to include are first-aid supplies for injuries,
eyedrops for redness, a mini bottle of contact solution, sewing tools with extra
buttons, Tide pens for stains, baby wipes to clean and double sided tape to keep
things in place.
Even if you have a steamer, be sure to also have something less cumbersome
like the Collar Perfect. It has 6 fabric setting from poly to linen but unlike a
traditional iron and board, it's small and travel friendly. The flip-out wing design
makes it easy to target big areas of clothing, or fold it in to touch-up a collar,
crispen cuffs, add creases to the center of pants and reach wrinkles between
shirt buttons. Perfect for the unexpected.
|2. NO SLEEPING IN YOUR MAKEUP
After spending all day at work and all night trying cake samples, the last thing
you're thinking about is taking off your makeup but it's a must.
Stress and lack of sleep is already wreaking havoc on your skin so sleeping in
your makeup will just add insult to injury.
The Makeup Mitty is a great way to remove the day away with ease. It's made
of a luxurious fabric that grabs hold of makeup without pulling or tugging at your
face. The teardrop shape gives you two sides to work with, the round area for
larger surfaces and the pointed detailer to reach those tiny parts like the
corners of your eyes.
I meant to post this sooner but better late then never! Earlier in May I visited The Jam and Lakeside Today to give tips for
bridal must haves.

Nine No Nos For Weddings
1. NO RULES
The traditional rule is to wear one necklace so you don't over do it, but this year's bridal runways had models layered in
pendant necklaces and bracelets showing that you can still look chic with more.
Mix old family heirlooms with new pieces like multiple diamond necklaces, coupled with stud or dangling earrings, and
several bracelets. JCPenney fine jewelry has fantastic options that are stylish that are very affordable, so you won't blow
your budget while your breaking the rules
|7. NO WHITE
You can have a white dress, and even white flowers but white underarms from
your deodorant will be a distraction from the style you want on your special day
so an antiperspirant goes on clear, like Dove Invisible Dry Spray
I talked about it on my winter tips post. It gives you the 48 hour sweat and odor
protection that you need from isle to resception, with NO white pit marks under
your arms or on 100 colors when you wave goodbye to go on your honeymoon.
So when you give your Dad a big hug in your strapless gown and he in black tux,
everyone stays looking elegant and picture perfect!
|8. NO STAINS
When you take your photos, whether they be engagement, wedding or bridal
party you don't want to have to worry about your smile so start treating your teeth
to a white boosting product to get rid of any food or drink stains that you've
accumulated over the years.
If you wear adult braces or have aligners, in the past you didn't have many
options to choose from. Now there is Eversmile White, which is specifically
designed to work with your dental needs for both cleaning 99.9% bacteria and
whitening. For regular teeth use the WhitenFresh, braces would be OrthoFoam
or WhiteFoam for the needs of aligners. The 3 options to get the smile that you
want and need for your special day. One less thing to worry about!
|9. NO STRESS
Last but not least don't forget to leave some time for yourself because the clock
is ticking and it can become very stressful. So use your daily routine to carve out
little bits of time to YOU, so you don't get overwhelmed. Stress can cause
breakouts + even hives, as well as major health issues so take this seriously.
Bath or showers can easily be a moment to pamper without making you feel
guilty. Even if there are guests in your home, they tend to leave you alone. So
throw on some music and give your mind and body a break.
Try using Dial Skin Therapy Enriching Body Wash The various scents are
Himalayan Salt, Manuka Honey and Sea Minerals. Each smell good, and have
an advanced moisture attracting formula to nourish and hydrate as you cleanse.
The lather feels lush. Makes you feel expensive....I love it! so take your
momentary breaks every day when you can! They add up. You know what?! I'll
add one of these to my giveaway below, so be sure to enter! I'm giving a lot of
