Why does the sex go  cold after a while and how can we keep it hot Art Asked?  He and Peggy were one of the many newlywed and about to wed couples,  who attended one of my Modern Love Trainings this year. When  Art had a chance to  explain further he said his dad and the other long married men in his family had been warning him that sex cooled off soon after marriage.

Everyone in the training started talking at once, yeah what’s that about ?” that’s not going to happen to ushey Dr Brenda, pleases tell us if there are secrets we need to know!”

YES! there are sex secrets based on  real science and I’m going to share 5 of the facts I teach couples in our trainings.

#1.  A Healthy Body is a Sexy Body

Rest and relax so your estrogen levels and guys your testosterone levels are  maximized. Avoid high levels of alcohol (men especially)  before making love. Exercise keeps your energy up, lowers stress and pours oxygen into your brain too, all making sex better!

#2. Aphrodisiac Foods

Chocolate, avocados, asparagus, oysters and hot chili peppers, chow down! Be careful not to be too full at bedtime or when you want to make love.

#3. Stay Warm

When your body is warm  it’s got better blood flow, in the genital area.  That makes it easier to enjoy relaxed sexual pleasure, leading to stronger climax.

#4. Never argue in your bedroom

And don’t watch TV in your bedroom couples who fight or watch TV in bed have less sex

#5. Communication is the Best Lubrication

Talk to one another in the most loving way, share what you appreciate and admire about one another on a daily basis it builds trust and feeling loved and that is so sexy!

Want more? My wedding gift to you is my free eBook,

 

“ Don’t Sabotage Your  Sex Life, Secrets to keeping it Hot! “

Bride | Lori Layne

Groom | Nick

Wedding Date September  7, 2019

Jake and I met 12 years ago through my brother and have been close ever since. Our friendship grew into a relationship and were together for almost 3 ½ years when we got engaged on January 18th, 2018. Our engagement was in Jamaica on the Sandals Resort in Ochi Rios. We were engaged for a year and 8 months before we got married in September 2019. It was absolutely the best day of our lives and could not have hoped or dreamed of it going differently. So much love was in the air that day you could stick out your finger and touch it. It was a perfect and magical day. Our colours were sage green, burgundy and quartz. The theme of the wedding was elegant and rustic.

Thinking about the details when you are celebrating your special day, but also in the design of how you are executing the visuals is very important. Your wedding should simply feel and represent who you are as individuals, pulling inspiration from who you are as a couple. Wedding and entertaining extraordinaire David Tutera has your décor, design & details tips, that will get you down the aisle in style.

Adding your Personality

Every couple has a story. Personalize your special day; define your own unique look and feel. If there is any trend or wedding etiquette that you are trying to follow, break it! Then your guests will experience something that they did not expect. Adding an extra special touch, that is special to you and your fiancé. You can really do anything you want. Just remember to have fun creating the details of your wedding.

Keeping it Simple

Remember to keep it simple and enjoy the process along the way. Paper flowers are on trend today. Incorporate faux flowers with real flowers to add a little fragrance. A simple and affordable way to express yourself and your wants; using your imagination and having a keepsake arrangement that will last a lifetime.

Don’t underestimate the power of the glow. Candles, Candles, Candles.

Reflect romance and ambiance to help to tell the story of your personal love story. Mix votives with larger sizes of candles for the best effect. The more the merrier. Amplify the colored glow with rhinestones and accents. Affordable embellishments will help to add a sense of drama and make your day extra special.

Attention to Details

Décor is all in the details. Simplicity of rose petals. Accent to floral design. Loose crystals in bouquets, escort cards, place cards. The little details are what makes a signature wedding. What truly makes the wedding YOUR wedding.

Our Top Dermalogica Picks

How far in advance should I start planning my wedding skincare regimen?

I would start a year before; this will allow your skin to be at it’s healthiest before your big day! But don’t worry, better late than never so start as soon as you can!

How often should I book a treatment with my skin therapist?

Every 4-6 weeks is recommended.

 What are some treatments that I can book 1 year, 6 months, 3 months, and a few weeks before my wedding?

 1 year before– Treatments focused on deep peeling, microneedling and brightening are recommended to help plump and firm the skin.

 6 months- Treatments focusing on exfoliation will polish and smooth the skin and allow any concentrated treatments like masques to be better absorbed which will increase skins luminousity and help your specific skin concerns.

 3 months- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate with a hyaluronic acid rich serum and masque.

 A few weeks – I’d suggest a deep exfoliation to smooth any texture on the skin (this will allow for a flawless make-up application), follow that with our Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque and you’ll already have a bridal glow!

 What treatments should I avoid in the weeks up to my wedding?

Any deep skin peels, microneedling or IPL as these require downtime for skin healing.

 What products should I be using weekly?

An exfoliant that will help buff off any dead skin cells and smooth the texture of the skin showcasing a radiant and luminous skin canvas!

A nourishing, vitamin enriched masque will quench thirsty skin and provide an extra boost of nourishment.

 What products should I be using daily?

A good cleanser is vital to healthy skin, at Dermalogica we believe in a double cleanse which will effectively remove any pollutants and make up from your skin. A hydrating/brightening serum to help replenish any lost moisture and increase luminosity and a skin specific moisturizer and an spf for the daytime.

  What products will help my wedding makeup stay all day?

A good primer is key to a flawless make up application. We have two to choose from: for a glowy finish, use Skin Perfect Primer; if you prefer something slightly more matte, our Hydrablur primer will give you the perfect canvas. Using our Antioxidant Hydramist as a setting spray will flash firm and maintain your make up look.

 What products will assist with issues like breakouts or fine lines?

AGE Bright Clearing serum can be used morning and night will help treat breakouts or keep them at bay. AGE Bright Spot Fade; is a spot treatment for active breakouts as well as the darker marks left behind after the breakout.

 Biolumin C will help brighten and firm the skin to treat fine lines.

Phtyo-Nature Firming Serum will offer flash firming as well as firm the skin over time.

 How quickly will rescue products work?

If you’re talking breakouts, skin aging, or sensitivity, give products a good month to see changes. However, if you are looking for a rescue of hydration and glow, 1-2 days.

 What foods and beverages should I avoid to maintain my complexion?

Any food or drinks containing any excessive amounts of sugar should be avoided, as they can lead to skin rosiness. Spicy food can also increase flushing in the skin and dairy can increase puffiness. Increase water intake for added hydration!

 What body products would you recommend to pair with my dream wedding dress?

Start with a full body exfoliation using our Thermafoliant Body Scrub. You can do this twice a week, follow up with Phyto Replenish Body Oil to soften and nourish the skin.

 What products are safe to use on my lash extensions?

Any products that aren’t oily will be safe for use on your lash extensions.

Making A House A Home https://bridalfantasy.com/making-a-house-a-home/ https://bridalfantasy.com/making-a-house-a-home/#respond Sat, 15 Feb 2020 10:08:41 +0000 https://bridalfantasy.com/?p=81980 The post Making A House A Home appeared first on Bridal Fantasy.

]]>

In today’s world of ever evolving technology, seasonally emerging fashion trends, weekly diet fads, and the latest and greatest of every product streaming to us daily; it can feel like very few things in our lives are truly lasting.  Our homes however are the one exception, and unlike our iPhones, we don’t want a yearly upgrade.  Our home can act as a true respite from what can feel like a disposable culture. At home, we surround ourselves with items of comfort, sentiment, memory and joy. So when selecting a home to purchase, do you find yourself seeking out the shiny, new cookie cutter home, or do you search for something more unique that you can transform into your own?

While an older home may not offer the luxury of brand new appliances or perfectly placed pot lights; the unique architectural elements and charming character that these homes often feature can be much harder to infuse into a new space. Elements such as moldings, interesting ceiling details, curved staircases and built in millwork are all examples of features often found in older homes that are major upgrades in new builds.  At first sight these character pieces may feel old or dingy, but a fresh coat of paint or new hardware can inexpensively transform these items into the key features of your home. The key to renovating an older home is to let the character shine through while adding the modern conveniences that you need.

We often advise clients to first live in their older home, to get to know the home itself, and to dissect their habits, needs and desires for the refreshed space. Renovating provides an opportunity to not only create a home that reflects your personal aesthetic but also a home that functions to suit your unique lifestyle.  Essentially, you can enjoy the luxury of building a custom dream home with the flexibility to build it over time and as your budget allows. Your design choices can evolve through the renovation process and in the end, you will be left with a truly personal home that reflects your own personality and life story.

As we enter the New Year we are really starting to see interiors move away from clearly defined style trends (think “modern farmhouse” or “mid century modern”) and evolve into more eclectic and personal spaces. The architectural character we celebrate in renovations translates directly to the furniture and décor items we choose as well. Mixing styles, eras and cultural influences into your home is what will create a timeless and personal feel. We are also seeing a lot more warmth in our neutral tones with textures and natural elements creating a base palette to layer upon. Lighter woods, mixed metals, soft whites and touches of black create a space that you can add anything into, including that antique heirloom you just can’t part with.

Overall there is just something so rewarding about breathing new life into an older space. Renovating allows you to take a once older, outdated house and make it a home, because after all, what is a home without the lives that dwell inside it?

Bride | Lori Layne

Groom | Nick

Wedding Date  June 22, 2019

I would say we went for a Rustic/ Glam theme, but my most important theme was throwing a FUN party. It’s supposed to be a celebration about Love and that’s what we wanted everyone to feel.

The colour scheme was pastels and sparkly gold.

Nick proposed in the St. Albert Botanic Park last summer. He planned the whole thing, down to his family surprising me from California. Right after I said yes I turned around and my family and his popped out from hiding behind trees in order to celebrate with us. We then went and had a party at my parent’s house, the same place as the wedding venue. It was on Canada Day so I had without knowing planned my own surprise engagement party while planning what I thought was our Canada Day celebration.

We met in the weight room at ASU (Arizona State University). We were both student-athletes, Nick was on the Football team and I (the bride) was on the swim team. I was on the elliptical doing rehab for my back after injuring myself during the swim season and he was walking through the area with his team after football practice. We caught each other’s eyes and it was friendship at first sight and built from there. He was also injured and we did a lot of our rehab together. Something amazing grew from a really hard time in our athletic careers.

Our wedding had friends and family from all over the world and we wanted everyone to just love being there as much as we loved having everyone there. It was the absolute best night of our lives! While planning the wedding I always said, if there’s good music, good food, and an open bar then nothing can really go wrong, and after the wedding, I still fully believe that.

7 Sustainable Wedding Favour Ideas https://bridalfantasy.com/7-sustainable-wedding-favour-ideas/ https://bridalfantasy.com/7-sustainable-wedding-favour-ideas/#respond Wed, 12 Feb 2020 18:49:50 +0000 https://bridalfantasy.com/?p=81924 The post 7 Sustainable Wedding Favour Ideas appeared first on Bridal Fantasy.

]]>

Weddings aren’t the most eco- friendly. From transport to and from the venue, to food disposal, to non-biodegradable confetti, brides are becoming more conscious of their waste and attempting to plan sustainable weddings instead. Whilst wedding favours are a thoughtful sentiment to spoil your guests, they can be extremely damaging to our environment, with unwanted gifts adding to the excess. To help combat this problem, the experts at Ash Barton have put together a list of 7 sustainable wedding favour ideas.

1. Beeswax candles

Honeybee candles are coloured naturally by ethically sourcing the pollen that honeybees brush onto beeswax. With a delicate honey smell, these 100% pure beeswax candles are the perfect sustainable wedding favour to treat your guests to. Not only do these candles burn with no sooting, but they also have no carbon discharge leaving no toxins in the air compared to chemically scented candles.

2. Succulents

Succulents are not only stylish wedding décor, but they can double up as wedding favours too. This plant choice is particularly popular because they do not need watering constantly, therefore attracting fewer pests. The thick leaves are also difficult for pests to feed through and these plants rarely overgrow, making them the perfect low maintenance plant to gift.

3. Seed packets

Seed packets are a unique wedding favour that can be easily personalised and incorporated into the table setting names. Alternatively, you can include flowers that have special meaning to you in your wedding, and then gift the seeds to your guests as a reminder of your big day. Make sure to package your seeds in recyclable paper so that every element of your wedding favour is sustainable.

4. Organic tea blends

Let’s face it, little trinkets and ornaments are often forgotten about and considered ineffective gestures. In fact, the most popular wedding favours are edible. Get creative and opt for gifting your own personalised blend of organic tea. When shopping for or creating a sustainable tea, be sure to choose a plastic free, Fairtrade, and Rainforest alliance certified tea. This way, your guests can sip on an eco-friendly and meaningful tea when easing the hangover next morning.

5. Eco-friendly soap

Soaps are not difficult to make and can be the perfect handmade (and sustainable!) wedding favour. Often, they have a nurturing base of organic coconut oil, which results in a soothing moisturisation of the skin and gentle lather. Try matching the scent of your soap to the season of your wedding- cranberry for winter and plum blossom for summer. Alternatively, you can opt for a fragrance-free soap for guests with sensitive skin.

6. Charitable donations

While you are being surrounded by love and well wishes from your close family and friends, it is important to remember others in need. Instead of spending money on a wedding favour that may be forgotten about, why not put the money towards a charitable donation in the name of your guests? Not only will this be a unique and sustainable alternative to usual wedding favours, but it is sure to leave your guests feeling warm inside.

7. Candy in recyclable bags

Who doesn’t like a sweet treat? Package organic, locally sourced chocolate or candy into recyclable bags and leave it on your guests’ plates as an edible gift. Alternatively, you can take this idea one step further and organise an eco-friendly dessert bar! This way, your wedding favours can merge into an extravagant, decorative display that your guests can help themselves during and after dessert time.
