Jewellery-A Girl’s Best Friend|Tips on how to preserve them

o-matic.1

We all just hate it when our favourite pair of earrings or bracelets go a weird, unappealing colour. Anyone would want their jewellery to look new and fresh even after it has been worn many a times.

Jewellery is a very important part of our wardrobe. So knowing the proper procedure for preserving it is very important.

The reason why it tarnishes is because of its exposure to moisture.

So, we take you through a guide that will tell you the DOs and DON’Ts of jewellery preservation-

027

# To Do-

  1. The best and ancient way to prevent your jewellery from rusting is to brush a little bit of clear nail polish to preserve the shine and colour.
  2. You can even preserve your jewellery when unused by putting it in a zip lock air tight plastic bag. Make sure you remove all the air from the plastic bag before zip locking it as the moisture may cause your jewellery colour to fade.
  3. You can wipe your jewellery pieces with a soft cotton cloth to help restore their luster.

#The Don’ts;

  1. Jewellery cleaners are a pure damage to your jewellery. It may seem easy to clean but there are some ingredients which MUST be kept away from our imitation jewellery which are present in almost all jewellery cleansers such as
  • Vinegar
  • Acids
  • Alcohol
  • Ammonia
  1. Real enemies of imitation jewellery are perfume, deo sprays and hair sprays. A single spray of these perfumes can instantly spoil the look and colour of the jewellery and can shorten the colour life.
  2. Some suggest using glass cleaners or soapy water to clean your jewellery but it may cause your jewellery to become dull from soap film.

5 ways to actually keep your New Year’s resolutions!

New year.
New beginnings.
Starting afresh.

We all dream of this at the end of every December.

“Oh, next year I am going to follow all the resolutions that I couldn’t keep up with this year!” we would exclaim.

This 2014, why not actually keep them?

Healthy-Resolutions-for-2014

Traditsiya brings to you 5 different ways to actually keep your New Year’s Resolutions:

1. Bring the Resolution in small chunks

Don’t make a short list of huge goals. Make a list with many smaller goals or break down huge goals into smaller goals. If you need to put down 20 resolutions, go for it!
The smaller your goals are, the faster it is for you to accomplish them. One goal accomplished and it will serve as motivation enough for your next chunk of the goal!

2. Print or write out copies of your resolutions.

Save a copy on each computer or electronic device you own, such as your smart phone, iPad, Note, Laptop.
Make a smaller copy and keep it in your wallet.
Keep a copy of it and stick it to your work desk.
Post a copy on the outside of your refrigerator.

3. Find a mentor or a Resolution – partner

Set up dates for evaluation with a mentor. This helps you to stay focused and evaluates methods for improvement. Having a group, partner, friend, or professional to encourage you can be a great way to keep you going. Try finding a friend who has a similar resolution, and check in with each other every week to talk about your progress and challenges.

4. Talk about it

Most people like to keep quiet about their goals, in case they fail. Well, we don’t want to fail at them, do we? Talk about it to people around you. They will act as reminders to keep up with the goals. Share your experiences with family and friends. Consider joining a support group to reach your goals, such as a workout class at your gym or a group of coworkers quitting smoking. Having someone to share your struggles and successes with makes your journey much easier, more fun and less intimidating.

5. Reward yourself!

When making your plan, a vital feature should be the rewards and treats you will give yourself at those all-important milestones. But be warned, don’t fall into the trap of putting your goal in danger – it’s too easy for a dieter to say “I’ve been so good, I deserve a few candy bars”, or a saver to throw caution to the wind with a new purchase. One slip, and it could all be over.New year.

How can we possibly neglect Christmas sweets? But we are aware of the hundreds of recipes that you might be already aware of or an expert chef would impart on his website or TV show. That’s why the only DIY tip for sweets is that decorate the sweets with the conventional red and green frosting- make a wreath or a holly or just an outline of a Christmas tree, and see the magic. You never know Santa might just get too tempted to taste one of them.
