Determining Which Colors Look Best on You

When women choose formal wear, it’s important that they know which colors look best on them for a couple of reasons. First, the wrong colors can make your skin looked washed out and do nothing to help your appearance. Second, formal dresses can be expensive so why buy something that doesn’t flatter you? In order to know what colors work best on you, you need to know what skin tone you have. Skin tones can be broken up into seasons, so let’s figure out what season you are!


·        Spring – Those with a Spring skin tone often have golden blond, light brown or red hair. Their skin may contain freckles and often has a “rosy” glow. Eye color for those with Spring skin tones is generally hues of blue or blue-green. The colors that flatter these women the most include soft colors like pink, peach and yellow. Because this is considered a warm skin tone, warm colors like light browns and greens also work well.

·        Summer – In contrast to Spring, the Summer skin tone is a cool tone. Women with this skin tone usually are natural blondes and even some brunettes. The skin color is very light and the colors that look best are more muted, soft colors. Bright and powerful colors easily overpower the skin and make it looked washed out.

·        Autumn – The Autumn skin tone is another warm skin tone. Most often this describes women red or dark brown hair. Their skin has a golden tone to it and the eyes are usually shades of green or brown. Very warm and rich colors look best on these women. For instance, brown, purple, green, burnt orange, etc. bring out the best in women with this skin tone.

·        Winter – Winter toned women usually have some Asian or African heritage in their blood as their skin tone is full of depth and contrast. Their eyes are generally very dark and deep, rich colors look best. Brightly colored clothing only enhances the natural beauty within the skin of these women. Make sure you stay away from light, bland colors as they are unflattering if you are a Winter woman!

August 15, 2011 Newsletter

Dear Valued Customer,

The year is seriously flying right by! It seems like yesterday we were preparing for the busy wedding season (June-August) and now here we are halfway through October! In fact, by the time you receive the next newsletter, Halloween will have just happened and you’ll be focusing on Thanksgiving and the holidays that follow soon after.

One of the best things about this time of year for anyone who has children in their lives is getting to watch them enjoy all of the fun holiday activities. Since Halloween is just a couple of weeks away, you will find one fun Halloween recipe and one Halloween craft you can enjoy with your children this year!

Popcorn Pumpkin Delight
Ingredients:
4-5 C. Popped Popcorn
1 C. Candy Corn
½ C. Butter
2.5-3 C. Mini Marshmallows
Red Food Coloring
Yellow Food Coloring
Black Twizzlers (cut into thirds)

Directions:

1.    Mix the popcorn and candy corn in a mixing bowl and set aside. If you like, you can add one cup of salted peanuts for extra flavor and crunch.
2.    Next, in a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Then stir the mini marshmallows in and add four drops of red food coloring followed by three drops of yellow food coloring. Continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.
3.    Next, pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn mixture and stir until the popcorn, candy corn and nuts (if added) are evenly distributed.
4.    Finally, spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray and spoon popcorn mixture into the muffin cups. Insert one small black twizzler piece (should be cut into thirds) into the top of the popcorn mixture. Shape into balls and leave alone for 10-15 minutes, or until firm.
5.    Enjoy!

Hanging Bat

What you will need:

3 Egg Carton Sections (comes with 12…cut out 3)
Wiggly eyes
Markers
String
Scissors
Glue

Directions:

1.    Take two of the egg carton sections and cut a semi-circle on the bottom of each to make them look similar to bat wings.
2.    Take the one whole egg carton and glue one of the cut cartons to one side and the other cut carton to the other side to form the bat. (The cartons need to be upside down with the rounded side facing the ceiling)
3.    Glue the wiggly eyes to the center (whole) egg carton and use the markers to draw a mouth.
4.    Poke a small hole into the top of the center egg carton (bat’s body). Cut a long piece of string and tie a knot (big enough to not go through the hole) at one end of it. Then, thread the string from the bottom of the bat up through the hole and hang from the ceiling!

Hopefully, you and your children will enjoy the Halloween recipe and activity listed above during your Halloween festivities!

Kids Formal Newsletter - Oct 1, 2011

Dear Valued Customer,

Fall has finally arrived for most of us as the temperatures are starting to cool slightly. It won’t be too long before the leaves begin changing colors and you’re taking your kids shopping for Halloween costumes. Then, the holidays will be right around the corner. As you probably know, from now until the first of the new is a magical time for children as they begin to think about Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and all of the festivities that accompany each holiday. Therefore, in the honor of our children, we thought we’d share with you a few things that adults can learn from their kids.

1.      Enjoy the Moment – If you’ve ever watched a toddler play, then you know that he/she is living in the moment. Toddlers (and other young children) don’t trouble themselves with what might happen tomorrow or next week…nor do they spend any time fretting over the problems that occurred yesterday. Now, as adults, we have to stay on top of things which naturally ties yesterday into today and possibly tomorrow. However, the point is to learn to let go a little bit. Each day find time to spend with your family and just live in the moment without thinking about anything else.

2.      Don’t Give Up - Have you ever stopped to think about all the things you did as a kid that were just flat out dangerous? Most of the time when we think about these things, we are swapping stories with friends and laughing about them. However, have you thought about why you did those things? For most of us, it was just to see if we could…especially if you are a guy! However, now that we are “grown up” and have kids of our own we tend to play it safe.

For instance, many adults: continue to work at a job they hate, invest money in lower paying investments because they’re “safer”, don’t open their dream business because it’s risky, etc. – all because they’re afraid to take a risk. But, you know what? As a child, what happened if you failed at something? You got back up and kept trying. This is the exact same thing many millionaires went through before they made it big. So, don’t let fear keep you from trying to reach your dreams. After all, our kids don’t!

3.      Don’t Pass Up a Bargain – Watching young children learn how to manage money can be a very educational thing for parents who watch closely. Children who have learned the value of a dollar are often times the best bargain finders. For instance, if you give your child $2.00 to spend on candy they may really want a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup that costs $1.00 but decide to get a small bag of mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that cost $2.00. Why? Because they got more candy for their money.

Obviously, as adults, we have bigger decisions to make then which type of candy to pick out. It may be that your house needs a new roof, the lawnmower needs replaced or just something simple like finding new outfits for family pictures. Whatever the case, take your time and shop around to find the best deal. We can all use to save some money, so learn from your children and hunt for the bargain.

If you take the time to put these three “lessons” into practice, you may get to experience some of the seasonal magic that your children are experiencing too!

We hope you’ve enjoyed this unique newsletter and that you are able to thoroughly enjoy the beginning of this exciting season. As always, if you need any formal wear for your children, please visit KidsFormal.com where you will find hundreds of bargains!

Sincerely,

Your Friends at KidsFormal
