4 Tips to Help You Keep Your Jewelry for a Lifetime

Receiving jewelry can be a great gift, whether it’s for a birthday, graduation, or some other occasion. Rings, necklaces, and other items should be cared for to ensure that they last a lifetime. Knowing about your jewelry item will empower you to make the right decisions to keep it clean and in good shape to last a lifetime or more.

Know Where to Store It

You need to know where and how to store your jewelry properly. Jewelry boxes can be a great starting point as long as you have enough room. If there are too many chains, they can become knotted very easily. Higher-end jewelry should be stored in a safe so that it’s kept safe from the possibility of theft. Then, when you want to wear it, you can remove it from the safe for a particular occasion.

When to Wear It

Jewelry should be worn based on the occasion, not all the time. It might be necessary to remove jewelry based on what activity you’re involved in. If you’re going swimming, no jewelry should be worn because it can slip from your fingers or tarnish due to the chlorine. If you’re working with heavy machinery or near moving parts, rings should be removed so that they don’t get crushed, potentially causing damage to your finger at the same time. Necklaces tend to get caught in moving parts, too, especially if they’re longer.

How to Clean It

You should be cleaning your jewelry on a regular basis so that sediment doesn’t get in and around the stones. Silver can tarnish, too, leaving dark marks on the jewelry that make it less attractive. Not all jewelry can be cleaned the same way, especially if you have an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. You have to look at what is and isn’t advised to go into the machine.

How to Protect It

Some jewelry can be extremely valuable, so it’s a good idea to find out how you can effectively protect it. Rings and other jewelry should be taken to jewelers periodically to be inspected. If there’s a loose diamond, for example, it can be addressed before you lose the stone.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to look at having your valuable jewelry covered under an insurance policy. If you’re still living at home, find out if your parents can add your pieces to their homeowners policy. If you’re on your own, look into your own policies. There may be a warranty that comes with new jewelry, too, allowing you to register it on the company’s website.

By learning more about the jewelry that you have, you can be sure to take care of it properly. It will allow you to keep your jewelry looking great for many years to come.

Jewelry isn’t the only valuable thing to protect — your car needs protection, too. Click here for tips on how to protect your car, yourself, and others following an accident.

4 Trendy Ways for Teen Girls to Look Their Sunday Best (Without Sacrificing Style)

When you’re headed to church on Sunday, the outfit that you choose to wear ultimately reflects your personal taste and style. It’s important to look nice so you can feel confident because there are just too many things that can bring you down. If you want to look stylish on Sundays, here are a few things to incorporate into your wardrobe.

Platform Sandals

Platform sandals were most commonly thought of in regards to the ‘90s, but they have officially made a comeback! They are favored for their feminine style that can be dressed up or down, so they’re good for pretty much any situation. The shoes add a bit of height and pair well with culottes or a summer dress without appearing too casual. There are many styles of platform styles to choose from, which often include thick straps and neutral color shades. Platform sandals also look great with a pair of capri pants. They’re also comfortable, easy to slip on and off, and don’t make you walk differently, so they’re all around pretty great.

Maxi Dresses

maxi dress

Maxi dresses continue to be one of the top trends to wear during the warmer months of the year because they’re fashionable and comfortable. The maxi dress is a great fallback when you need something elegant and yet simple. The length of the dress creates a semi-formal look that can be enhanced with a wide-brimmed hat or a pair of wedges. At night, it can even be dressed up with a leather jacket. Ultimately, they are a good, no fuss outfit that can be used at pretty much any time of the year.

Puffed Shoulders

puffed shoulders

Puffed shoulders used to be seen as kind of tacky, or from the not-so-distant past of your mom or aunt’s closet, but the ‘80s are back in a big way! So long as they’re not too big, they add a touch of glamour and drama to blouses and dresses. The puffed shoulders trend is a nod to the ’80s, as well as the Victorian era. They work well with blue jeans and are upscale enough to make you look appropriate when heading to church or brunch on Sunday. 

Leopard Print

Leopard print has recently been seen on the runway and continues to be in style for its exotic design that is regal and bold. Consider incorporating a leopard print garment into your outfit to add extra flair that is daring and feminine. A leopard print pencil skirt or a leopard print fur coat will make a statement when you want to turn heads with a timeless piece that can stay in your wardrobe for many decades. The print is known to instantly elevate any outfit with the increased visual appeal that it offers. Just don’t overdo it, because leopard print everything can be a little bit overwhelming.

Embracing the latest trends will allow you to put together unforgettable outfits each Sunday as you spend time with family members and friends. By looking your absolute best, you can show off a contemporary style that is both chic and glamorous.

Abla Sofy: GUESS’s New “It” Girl is Arabic and Proud – Interview!

abla sofy interviewpic

Abla Sofy has a lot going for her. This Moroccan-born beauty hangs out with Bella Hadid, appeared on BRAVO’S ‘The Second Wives Club,’ modelled for BEBE, starred in a music video with French Montana and Daddy Yankee, and is now the first Arab model ever to have a billboard on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood as the face of GUESS. She is also a fashion stylist who has worked on campaigns with Hailey Baldwin, Camilla Cabello and Jennifer Lopez.

What makes her unique and refreshing is that she is of a conservative upbringing, and therefore her modelling is less revealing than many Western models — which is just fine with her bosses, who respect her cultural views. 

We got the chance to do a Q&A with Abla to dive deeper into her world and what she predicts will be hot in fashion for 2019! read on…

abla sofy interviewpic

Salam! Abla, nice to e-meet you. Before we get into your current projects, tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.

First of all, I would love to thank you for the interview and for your interest in me. I am 100% Moroccan born and raised. I went to French school and gained a business degree in Morocco. After getting my business degree, I decided to move to LA and go to fashion school. It was always my dream to be in America. After my first visit, I loved it and decided to pursue my studies in fashion school here. When I moved to LA, I got the chance to be introduced to Mohammed Hadid through a family friend and I started working with him as his personal stylist for his TV show. Then I had the opportunity to be on the show myself.

Great! You were recently picked to represent the major fashion brand GUESS, the first Arab to do so. How has that changed your life so far?

When we finished shooting the E! TV show ‘Second Wives Club’ , Mohammed Hadid loved my style and sense of fashion and decided to introduce me to Mr. Paul Marciano, the owner of GUESS. In the beginning, I was afraid to model for him when he showed me all these beautiful pictures of all these gorgeous girls, so we finally agreed that I would work inside the company as a stylist and a designer.

After two years working with GUESS and getting to know the company inside and out, I was approached by the producer Redone to star in a music video with French Montana, Daddy Yankee and Amanda Cerny. After the video came out, I received a lot of exposure and I became far more confident to get into the spotlight. This is when Mr. Marciano asked me to model for him for the second time and this time I accepted!

To be the first Arab model for GUESS changed my life in many ways, especially in the world of fashion. I’ve got a lot of respect from people in the industry because this is something nobody has ever done before. I get the opportunity to represent the Arab woman in America and many people respect this achievement a lot. It has made it very easy for me to have a voice and an impact so I can advise the many people who reach out to me to give them advice about life and how they should achieve their dreams. As an Arab woman it is important to me to let people know how to stand up for what they believe in and not follow all the ideas that are sold to them.

abla sofy interview

What are your responsibilities to the GUESS brand…do you just model for them or is there more to it?

I have a lot of responsibility toward the brand GUESS. I need to give the best image of myself as I always keep in mind that GUESS is a global brand, so everywhere I go, every magazine cover I shoot and every interview that I do, I need to follow the values of the brand that the owner of GUESS believes and teaches all his models.

I always carry with me little cards that have all the values of the brand written down. It’s something very important for me that is beneficial for me even in my personal life. Mr. Paul Marciano has a lot of experience and has built an empire, so each piece of advice I get from him is very valuable to me.

What have you learned about fashion and style now which you wish you knew when you were younger?

I will never forget one time I was in school and I was wearing red pants and a pink shirt. This girl in front of a guy I liked yelled at me and said that “everybody knows we can’t mix pink and red.” I was so embarrassed. If only I had known that the answer I could have given her: that there are no rules in fashion. Everybody has their own vision and taste and if you want to mix some colors and textures this is what you should do and you can make these beautiful in your own way.

What fashion trends do you think are going to be hot in 2019?

Neon and everything bright are the trends for 2019 which I really love so I’m very happy about that. Green, orange, yellow-and even silver and gold are the colors that are going to be everywhere this year. Also, the mix of classic and sporty is a trend. For example, a suit with a sports bag or belt bag is very trendy so we can play as much as we want and we can go out to meetings all week and go to club with the same outfit, which is really cool.

abla sofy interview3

What is one beauty tip you think every teenage girl should know?

The most important advice for every teenage girl is to take care of her skin and teeth while she’s young. Teeth change your smile so don’t be afraid to wear braces now because you will thank your parents later. Make sure you take care of your skin and use the right products. Don’t use too much make up now so you can have nice skin later.

You are also an actress, right? What’s the biggest challenge you have faced so far in show business?

Yes. I also have a TV show in Morocco. It’s the Arabic version of ‘Entourage.’ It was really fun because I was playing my own character. My biggest challenge in America is to keep my own voice and continue to make people believe in me. With everything that is happening in the world, people have wrong ideas about Arabs from the images they are given on the news. I have to fight this every day and show them that the Arab people are hard workers, they are positive, they are smart and they can bring big value everywhere they go and people should trust them and give them a chance.

And what do you feel is your biggest accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment is the fact that I convinced all these brands such as GUESS, BEBE and national and international magazines to believe in me as an Arab woman. This is the message I always give. I don’t want to be just another a model, because I represent the new era of Arabic women. I am strong, open and I still respect my values. I am very proud of this.

Which celebrity have you most enjoyed working with and why?

I had a chance to shoot many campaigns with Hailey Baldwin when I used to work for GUESS as a stylist and it was a lot of fun. I learned a lot from her as a model. She has a very strong personality and she also refused to be overtly sexy in the pictures. This reminded me of myself. She kept insisting on this until production accepted her values, so I respect her for that as she is a very young model. She knows what she wants and this is how she succeeded.

Who would you most like to work with in the future?

I am very close with the Hadid family, but I have never had the chance to work with Bella Hadid. I think everything about her is perfect; her face, her style, her personality. I would love to have the opportunity to work with her. I really admire her as a model, and how down to earth she is with her family and fans after all the success she has achieved.

What do you think is the biggest misconception Americans have of Arabs, and what is the truth about it?

I am so sad to say this, but the biggest misconception we have about Arabs is terrorism and the fact that our people are very close-minded. This is really false, because in every country there are people that do bad things. Having a bad image of the Arab people hurts me a lot. This is why it’s very important for me to insist that I’m an Arab, I’m open minded and I am doing something good for the Arab people in order to improve even a little bit, the bad image that is given on the news.

If you could go back in time and give only ONE piece of advice to your teenage self, what would you say to yourself?

If I could go back and give myself one piece of advice it would be to be patient when I was young and wanted everything right away, right now. We don’t know that the best things take time to achieve. You have to build yourself up so you have a stronger base and better things to present and to give to people in the future.

Morocco versus L.A. – who wins? : )

This is always one of the hardest questions I get asked. I think a mix of both is perfection for me. I try to take what I love from both Morocco and LA. Both are valuable to me.

Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you?

I am a very introverted person. I can spend days at home just sitting reading, getting inspired and watching TV. I’m a big thinker. I love to think and try to find the best solution to new ideas. I don’t like to surround myself with a lot of people. It freaks me out. I think it’s very important for a person to know how to make herself happy and how to get inspired from her own energy.

Biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when someone is talking too much. It really stresses me out. I don’t want to be rude, but it really makes me very frustrated, so I have to leave or to ask the person to calm down as it gives me a big headache. This is something I’m trying to work on because it’s important to hear people talk so you can get their point of view. However, if someone does not stop talking, I feel like they are getting into my head and attacking me.

Favorite food?

My favorite food is, of course, Moroccan food. This is the thing that I miss the most from Morocco after my family. Moroccan food is just so tasty, so full of spices and so healthy. It’s very hard for me to find something similar when I’m in America, so I found a little Moroccan restaurant here in LA that I go to weekly, which I enjoy very much.

Secret fear?

My secret fear is that I will stay too focused on my work and not be able to have kids until later, because I always wanted to have children as young as I can. I am very focused on my career now, which is making me really happy, but it’s always something in the back of my mind. I think a person should find a way to balance both of them. I’m still working on that.

What’s the last movie you watched, and give me a review…but you can only use TWO WORDS for the review : )

“OCEAN” was the last movie I saw coming back from Morocco on the plane and my review is: ‘amazingly insane.’

The one piece of makeup I cannot live without is__________.

Concealer of course! I always have the worst dark circles. I never leave my house without a concealer. Sometimes, it’s the only make up I have on my face.

Most embarrassing moment IRL you wish you could do over?

The most embarrassing thing happened when I went to a model casting and they asked me to show up with no make- up on. I thought they wouldn’t know I had concealer on, but they did and asked me to take it off!

What else are you working on or have coming up next?

I am working on a few fun projects with some brands. Fashion is always my thing so I’m transitioning into television. It’s my dream to have a TV show and work on that more in America, since I’m already acting a lot in Morocco.

Selfie time!

How to Get Cheap Trendy Clothes and Change My Wardrobe

Fashion matters. It helps you gain a different kind of confidence. It also enables you to establish your sense of style. Your teenage years are exciting because your parents are finally giving you some more say in what you wear. However, like most teenage girls, you probably don’t have a ton of money to spend. Thankfully, there are ways to get cheap trendy clothes to reinvent your wardrobe and look amazingly stylish on a dime. Consider these four tips to get started.

cheap trendy clothes fashion tips

1. Distress or bleach old jeans

According to E & O Apparel, one of the easiest ways to keep your money safe is by using some outfits and items you already have in your closet. Styles change with each season, forcing you to clean out your closet in order to stay trendy and fashionable. If you’re a regular person, you just don’t have the time or money to do that every time a new trend comes into play. What you can do to have cheap trendy clothes is take some of your favorite items, modify them, and pair them together with different items to make a stylish outfit.

For example, there are tons of high-end designer stores that sell distressed jeans and bleached jeans for hundreds of dollars. Instead of spending all of that money, revive an old pair of jeans. Take the jeans and distress them yourself. You can also bleach them and make your own patterns. There are tons of tutorials on sites like YouTube to walk you through the steps. Afterwards, pair ‘em with some boots and a chunky old sweater, and you then have an outfit. Cheap trendy clothes which look fabulous can be yours with a little creativity–and inspiration from some Youtubers or Instagrammers.

2. Look at second hand shops online which sell cheap trendy clothes

There are many tricks for finding cheap trendy clothes to change your wardrobe on the internet. One of them involves searching used-but-trendy second hand sites like Depop or Poshmark. You can also look at carefully curated second hand sites like ThredUp or The Real Real for high-end clothes at significant discounts.

Additionally, you can also sign up for the email lists of many discount fashion retailers like AliExpress or Wish. Many of these inexpensive retailers are based in China so proceed with caution because the measurements might be a lot smaller than the standard American sizes. Read the reviews for specific items to see the experiences of others. Once you do your research, you can easily purchase tons of clothes from Chinese retailers and spend less than $30 with free shipping. You can also check out a bunch of other affordbale clothes in our list of best places to find the cheapest clothes online for teens.

3. Go to the local thrift stores on discount days

cheap trendy clothes thrift store

Plenty of local thrift stores have specific days during the week for markdowns, like certian tag colors being 50 percent off. After school is out, head over to the thrift store on these days when items are cheaper.

The thrift store is the perfect place to stock up on cheap trendy clothes, like pairs of sturdy jeans. You might even be able to find some classic blouses and fashionable shoes. Just be sure to wash the items and iron them well. No one will know they’re second hand–and in most big cities the slightly distressed look is hippper than fresh off the rack stuff!

4. Purchase trendy jewelry pieces on sale

Jewelry is excellent because it allows you to accessorize an outfit and makes it look a little different. Purchase a few statement pieces to enjoy throughout the school year with different outfits. Purchase the items while they’re on sale so that you can enjoy trendy pieces without investing tons of money. Alternatively, you can also look for inexpensive jewelry at sites like Miss A where just about everything is one dollar.

As you implement these tips, you’ll be able to get buying cheap trendy clothes down to a science. You’ll find new ways to remain stylish and fashion-forward on a dime. Before long, your BFFS will all want to know your secrets!

5 Back-To-School Fashion Tips for Guys

Going back to school can seem like a huge hassle after enjoying a carefree summer where you have likely lived in swim shorts. However, getting back in the school year groove doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. In fact, it can be quite exciting to redefine your “clout” after a long spell away from school. Here’s how:

Define Your Style

This first, but important step doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. In fact, you can use simple idea board searches like “street style,” “hipster guy,” or “fall men’s fashion.” The combinations are endless! Save ideas that catch your eye and shop your closet for the pieces you already own or visit your local thrift store for more trendy looks.

The Perfect Backpack

If your clothes are mostly bold prints and full of color, you will want to find a more neutral backpack that goes with all of your outfits. On the flip side, if you mainly dress in neutral colors, then you might want to find a more interesting pattern or color to add some extra swag.

Shoes Matter

You don’t have to own a million shoes to show your style. Try to find shoes that you can dress up or dress down, like Wallys shoes. Often made from comfortable, stretchy material, these shoes are a great neutral basic to go with athletic or casual outfits. The average pair of Wallys shoes sells for as little as $45 on most shopping sites.

Amp Up the Face

If facial hair is allowed in your dress code, don’t be afraid to try something new this year! Don’t invest in a more complicated trim if you don’t have the money or time to keep up the look. Poorly maintained facial hair could turn an outfit from making you look like a snack to “meh.” Beyond facial hair, your smile is a great asset that complements any look. If you don’t feel confident in your smile, then there are ways to perfect your pearly whites

Fresh Haircut

One of the easiest ways to make a drastic change in your look is getting a new haircut. Nothing speaks louder than a fresh fade with a hard part and some pomade. If your hair is longer, try out a man bun or even braids. Experimenting with hairstyles can be an easy and impactful way to change up your look, improve your confidence, and help you stand out this upcoming school year.

Regardless of the style choices you make, try to remember what is going to be the easiest to maintain during the school year. With homework, school events, and after-school activities, the last thing you want to do is hassle with your wardrobe.
