Have you sorted out a gift?

Another thing which can take a while when it comes to getting ready for weddings is picking a gift. After all, you want to ensure you find something that the newlyweds will love for their big day. But it can be difficult to find a gift that stands out when there will be dozens of other guests picking similar items. Therefore, you should make sure you think of a unique gift which the bride and groom will love. It might be the case you decide to make something by hand which will be a unique present they can keep forever. For example, you might want to create an ornament they could put in their humble abode. Or you might want to bake them something they can consume after the wedding day. After all, it will show them how much effort you have gone to if you provide them with a creative present. And if you want to buy them a useful gift, don’t just go for another toaster. Ask the bride and groom if there is anything they could do with for their new humble abode. And it will stop you buying another item that the bride and groom already have! Remember to always keep the receipt for whatever gift you choose for the wedding. That way, they can take it back if they don’t like the present.

You need to consider your hair

A lot of people sort out their clothes for the wedding day, but they forget about their hair. But if your hair is not looking fantastic, it can bring down your outfit. In fact, it can take your glamorous outfit down to a shabby look. Therefore, you need to consider what you are planning to do with your hair now wedding season is upon us. It might be the case you might want to book in for a hair appointment a week before the wedding. After all, they will ensure any dead hair is cut away before the big day. And it can ensure you get a cute style before the wedding. Just make sure you don’t go for anything outrageous. After all, you might struggle to get it back to its original state before the wedding day arrives. And if you would rather not go for a cut, you might want to just curl or straighten your hair on the big day. After all, it can ensure your hair looks fabulous, despite the condition of your locks. And whatever you do, make sure you put some hairspray on before you leave the house. After all, as soon as there is a bit of wind, it could send your hair out of control if you have put on no spray. And remember to cover up your hair, you could always go for a fascinator. These can give your whole outfit some instant glam. And it’s great if your hair isn’t looking it’s best on the big day!

What will you do about makeup?

You also need to make sure you work on your beauty before the big day arrives. After all, you will want to pull off a great look on the big day. And makeup can make all the difference when it comes to how you look at the wedding. Therefore, you should work out which makeup you plan to use on the big day. You might want to practice with different looks a week or so before the wedding. After all, you might have a brilliant idea in your head which just doesn’t look right when you get it on your skin. And you don’t want to end up finding this out on the wedding day when you are meant to be leaving for the ceremony! Therefore, try out different looks before the big day so you can find out what will suit your look. Remember it’s best to go quite natural with your makeup at the wedding. After all, you don’t want something that is too OTT compared to everyone else’s look. And if you are a crier at ceremonies, make sure you opt for waterproof makeup. After all, you don’t want to spend ages in the toilet sorting out your makeup due to crying at the ceremony! And if you have space in your bag, put your lipstick and concealer so you can keep applying the makeup throughout the day.

Getting the Right Amount of Sleep

When you head to bed, how many hours of sleep do you aim for? Are you trying to go for the standard 8 hours, do you get by with 5, or are you one of those people that try to sleep for as long as possible? Whatever your sleeping pattern is, there are most likely a few ways to optimise your sleep schedule so that you’re more likely to wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the next day.

Contrary to popular belief, recommended amounts of sleep don’t make much sense. Everyone’s body is different and, as a result, everyone sleeps a different amount every night. There’s a reason why some people sleep in for many more hours than others, and there’s also a reason why everyone manages to get by with however much sleep they get. There could be lifestyle decisions or health issues that affect how much sleep you actually get, and it’s possible that you’re sleeping too little or too much.

There are a couple of ways that will help you get the right amount of sleep, but it takes a little trial and error and it does involve some experimentation. So to help you get the most out of your bedtime, here are a few tips.

Start with your bedroom

First of all, we need to remove any suspicion that it’s your bedroom that’s causing your lack of sleep. There are several issues that need to be taken care of before we can start experimenting with how much sleep you get each night. First of all, remove any kind of electronics in the room. For instance, if you find yourself lounging in bed at night watching late night television, then you want to remove the TV and watch all of your shows before bed. You want your body to associate sleeping with the bed, not films.

Next, visit a mattress comparison site like ChooseMattress and pick something that’s fairly expensive and meets your needs. We sleep on our beds for roughly a third of our lives, so make sure you’re not cheaping out and getting a budget mattress—your back will thank you in the future. Try to remember that your bed frame also matters.

The sleep experiment

So to start, set a baseline of around 7 hours. Set your alarm to when you want to wake up, count back 7 hours, then sleep at that time. Sleep means you’re in bed and already closing your eyes by the time that time strikes, so don’t delay it too much. If you manage to wake up on time consistently for a couple of days, then that’s your target bedtime. If you find yourself waking up consistently before your alarm, then you can reduce your sleep needed by around 10-15 minutes. If you find yourself snoozing more often, then add 10-15 minutes.

Keep repeating this process until you’ve completely grown used to a certain sleep time. It’s important to practice this experiment for at least a week until you’re comfortable sleeping and waking up at the same time. Remember a lot of sleep problems can be solved with a regular schedule that you stick to so that it adjusts your body’s inner clock. Sleeping the correct amount can solve everything from weight issues to managing your chronic pain, so make sure you’re sleeping the correct amount each night.

Red Hot chili Peppers to play in India – Let’s make it happen!

How many times has it happened that we’ve madly hoped, prayed, for our favorite international artist or band to perform in India? How many times has it materialized ? How many times do concerts cancel right before the event date?

Remember the cancellation of Bryan Adams event in Delhi back in year 2011, Korn in Mumbai was cancelled in 2012, David Guetta in Bengaluru in 2017? None were cancelled because tickets were not sold. Various realities have scared Indian Music promoters from taking risks and bringing India’s favorite International artists to perform live.

Wanting to make a dream come true, to watch a favourite international artist in India, made two veteran entrepreneurs and music lovers, Kabir Bhasin (co-founder of Furlenco) and Kanishka Sharma (Ex-Flipkart), come up with an idea. This idea is called Fanagig.

The idea is simple. If they themselves are willing to pay to watch their favourite band perform in India, then there must be a few thousand more that would put money down for the same band? If yes, then the concept Fan-A-Gig will be a break through platform to revolutionize the whole live music scene in India!

How does Fan-A-Gig work?

Prerequisite: You are a fan of live music.

All you have to do is go to www.fanagig.com, browse existing campaigns and vote for the one (or more) bands you love. Your support, your vote, will go a long way in making the dream come true.

Votes must reach the goal before Fanagig will take the next step.

If your favorite artist is not in the on-going campaign list, then Fan-A-Gig gives you an option to create your own campaign.

Share campaigns through your social media, get other fans to vote and watch the magic happen.

Once there are sufficient votes, Fan-A-Gig then does the rest of the work for you. After that, all you have to do is pay for your ticket and pack your bag for the concert of your dreams!

Sign up for the cause! Bring the revolution! Let’s make a change! Let’s spread the word and make sure every Indian fan gets the chance of enjoying their artist perform live .

And wait, we are not just talking about big international bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Eyed Peas or The Cranberries but also great Indian bands like Indus Creed, Parikrama, Raftaar or Badshah! Since it’s about music, there are no boundaries of genres. There is something for every fan. All you need to do is sign up or run a campaign and get this going.
