We recommend that you take your sweater to an environmentally friendly dry cleaner or hand wash your sweaters. All fibers have unique care needs and we’ve put together our tips for caring for and protecting your wool sweaters.

  1. It’s best to make sure your sweaters are clean before you store them, as moths and other pests feed off sweat and stains. You also don’t want stains and odors to set in. Sometimes you can simply air a sweater out by placing it in or near fresh air, to get rid of odors. Always fold your sweaters. Also, make sure they’re stored out of direct sunlight. Don’t hang your sweaters old them instead, hanging stretches them out.
  2. Use a baby brush to remove lint. Gently try to scratch lint with baby brush from your sweater.
  3. The unavoidable truth is all sweaters will pill just by wearing or cleaning them. You can remove pills easily by holding the sweater flat with one hand and slicing off pills one at a time with a simple razor, like a Bic. You can also use a pumice stone to De-pill  sweaters.
  4. Freeze your sweaters for 3-4 hours. This avoids pulling and kills moths. Use a small and clean plastic bag for cooling it.
  5. Spritz vodka to kill bacteria and remove unwanted odor.
  6. Add vinegar to bring back fluff.
  7. Always hand-wash your sweaters to keep them for long with you. Never wring anything. Gently squeeze water out of the sweater and then lay it flat on a towel. Roll it up like a sleeping bag to really suck up the excess water. Dry it by laying it flat on a clean towel or a drying rack.
  8. After the wash and rinse, refill the sink or basin with enough cool water to allow the sweater to swirl around. Thoroughly mix in liquid fabric softener and follow the same directions for washing explained earlier. Rinse it thoroughly in cool water.

If you ask me, I am a big jewelry lover. I love exploring jewelry trends. New fashions and I really love following them. Today, I will be discussing about all the ways you can wear jewelry.

A bad truth, but many of the Maharashtrian ladies doesn’t know about the Maharashtrian special stuff and the trends for the same. So, I think we should start with Maharashtrian only.

Thushi:

A type of necklace design also called as choker is bit tight round the neck. It is a type discovered during the time of Peshwas. The queens used to wear, depicting the royalty of the family.

Necklaces:

Necklaces can be different types. Ganthan, beads necklace, pearl necklace, chincpeti, mala, necklace sets and a long list to go ahead.

Earrings:

These are one of the type of ornaments which a lady is always wanted to be gifted with, or wishes to wear. Earrings can have many pretty varieties, variety in designs, colors, length, pattern, trend, type, culture, traditional, modern, western and a lot..!

Bangles:

Bangles suits a lady the most. Their beautiful look is just incomplete without bangles. You can try out Silver, Golden, AD collection in Bangles.
Trends come and go, and style evolves. It’s important to have pieces of jewelry that are timeless and look chic despite ever-changing fashions. I like for jewelry to tell a story and to be able to talk about what I’m wearing. That’s more important to me than a name, brand, or label.

Jewelry and pins have been worn throughout history as symbols of power, sending messages. Interestingly enough, it was mostly men who wore the jewelry in various times, and obviously crowns were part of signals that were being sent throughout history by people of rank. In both business and personal life, I’ve always found that travel inspires me more than anything else I do. Evidence of the languages, cultures, scenery, food, and design sensibilities that I discover all over the world can be found in every piece of my jewelry. So, I travelled, had conversations with people and decided to write for people. As, I wanted people to know the beauty we have in every corners of our country. If I’m not feeling super confident about an outfit or a little insecure – I’ll probably accessorize my outfit with some jewelry.

So, this is all about the Maharashtrian trends for all jewelry lovers as per demand. I will suggest you a brand named Aionios Creations.
They have this immense variety of western, modern, ethnic, golden, silver, sterling silver, bangles, hair accessories, rings and a lot more. Let’s say a bye for now. Will meet soon with a new topic all over again..!

How To Use Instagram For Promoting Your Brand? (Part 2)

Instagram

From the boom in popularity of Instagram Stories, to the recent expansion of advertising opportunities—it’s a good time to be using Instagram for business.

How can your business get the most out of Instagram marketing? This post covers everything from getting started and creating a content strategy, to building your brand and boosting results.

Instagram has over 700 million monthly active users, less competition and a more engaged audience than other social media giants like Facebook or Twitter.

This presents businesses with an opportunity to market their products to a more targeted and interested audience without spending an enormous amount of money on paid advertising. As of January 2018, Instagram’s API has changed to allow users to publish photos to an Instagram Business Profile using a third party platform (like Sendible), making it even easier for brands to take advantage of all Instagram has to offer.

Whether your strategy needs an update or you’re a newcomer to this social media network, you’ll find these tips on how to use Instagram for business superbly useful.

Show what you do in a creative way

Focus on the solution you provide, not the products you sell. On Instagram, it’s essential to add value to your customers and look pretty while you do it. Never underestimate the fact that your most important asset (and downfall) on this social media network is visual content.

If your business is service-oriented, focus

on showcasing the process behind providing the service. Show your company culture, share your mission with the world, or simply share some tips and how-tos. It’s possible to upload photos, short videos (similar to GIFs, called Boomerangs) and videos up to one minute in length.

Adopt a ‘Tribe’ Mentality

With so many busy users and photos floating around on Instagram, standing out might seem like an uphill battle.

Reality check: you do not need millions of followers on Instagram to be considered a success story.

Instead of worrying about boasting big numbers, it’s best to approach Instagram for business with a sort of “tribe” mentality.

Start small. Establish relationships. Engage with others one-on-one.

In short, build your own tribe.

Make no mistake: Instagram is not an “if you build it, they will come” platform. Businesses both big and small should focus on not only building their own followings, but tapping into niche communities where their audience is already hanging out.

How do you make it happen, though? Where can you find potential members of your tribe?

Instagram-Stories-for-business

Try Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories have a slideshow format and are only live for 24-hours (though they can be saved to your device to be re-used later). This new feature is a direct competitor to Snap-chat’s Stories and is now being heavily developed by Instagram. These are some of the benefits of using Instagram Stories for brands:

  • Stories are prominently displayed at the top of follower timelines just under the Instagram logo.
  • Can be used to capture behind-the-scenes content that doesn’t have to be as high in quality as regular posts.
  • Makes it easy to experiment with different content types: photo, short video, Boomerang (GIF-like image), video filmed backwards (Rewind) and live video.
  • Tagging other accounts, e.g. @Instagram in Stories is ideal for collaborators and influencer marketing.
  • Fun additions like face filters, text and stickers help you edit images on-the-go.
  • Story search for hashtags and locations make them more discoverable.

All photos and videos you add will play in the sequence they were added and you can add as many as you like. Instagram Stories adverts became available to all businesses globally in March 2017. You can use these to target new audiences and add CTAs to your collages which can be especially useful for promotions. Check out Single Grain’s ultimate guide to running Instagram Stories Ads for a full step-by-step guide to creating your first one.

Note that Stories are only available on the mobile app and it’s possible to send Instagram Stories as a direct message (DM). The use of social media Stories is definitely picking up and almost any brand can find a fun and engaging way how to participate.

Uncover Niche Hashtags

Hashtags essentially act as a search function for Instagram to find relevant followers and brands. This rings true for users and businesses alike.

And again, tapping into your target audience means getting specific.

For example, the #beauty tag has literally hundreds of millions of posts behind it. Rather than tackle crowded hashtags, consider how smaller, niche hashtags such as #unicornhair, #bluehairdontcare or #coloredhairgoals exist in which a beauty brand could realistically stand out.

Similarly, location-specific hashtags are perfect for zeroing in on an audience in your own neighborhood.

“Think small” is smart advice for brands trying to attract a dedicated following versus swinging for the fences. Oh, and Sprout can help you figure out how to get your hashtags right if you’re totally stuck on how to tag your photos

I hope that these tips will improve your channel’s performance and attract new customers. Please tell us which of these tips were most useful to you, and also let us know about other tactics that have worked for you.

Raksha Bandhan – A Beautiful Thread That Binds Your Precious Relationships.

She’s been there for everything. She was there with ice cream when you got dumped. She was there with champagne when you got that job you fought so hard for. She was even there with ginger ale and her van when you got the flu and just could not do the morning school run. She answers the phone in the middle of the day and night, ready to talk out anything.

pirf_20120707_sa0028

 

You have a shorthand for everything and sometimes all you have to do is look at her and she can tell what you’re thinking. She knows who your celebrity crush is and she doesn’t judge you for it. She’s told you the truth about every dress you’ve ever tried on in her presence and she reminds you that when it doesn’t look great, the problem is the dress, not you. She encourages you to be your best every day. And you do all of this for her too, because you love her like family—family you picked. She’s your best friend, and your life would be lacking without her.

Raksha Badhan3328

When we were kids, we used to declare someone our best friend by making a friendship bracelet from string or, if we were really lucky, with necklaces shaped like two halves of a heart that said “Best Friends” when you fit them together. Life has changed a bit since those days, but isn’t the sentiment still the same? Having a best friend like yours is something worth celebrating, worth declaring. Let her know that the friendship you share is important to you, just like when you were little. Pairing charm bracelets with the Best Friends charm will show her just how you feel. She remembers those necklaces too… and she feels the same about you.

 

We design and create handmade jewelry that is versatile enough to wear every day or for special occasions.  From necklaces to anklets, everything we handcraft is not only made in the USA but made especially for you! We also feature specialty pieces for weddings—from the bridal party to the Mother-in-Law, we have an adornment for whoever helped make your big day happen.

Indian women and jewelry

Indian women and jewelry have always formed a great combination. The tradition is still alive and time has made it only more vigorous than earlier. The art of making beautiful ornaments, with delicacy and acumen, has been developed throughout the historical times.

Maang Tikka

This beautiful piece of jewelry had lost its charm until recently as it is back with a bang.You can choose a heavier maang tikka if you have a broad forehead and a light delicate one for a smaller forehead. Usually, the maang tikka comes along with the bridal set so that it is of the same metal and color scheme. Check out some fantastic maangtikka’s at Aionios Creations!!!!

Necklace

Obviously the most important piece of jewelry, the haar or the necklace should be worn by every bride. Not only does it cover the bare neck area but if properly matched with your outfit, accentuates your look even more. Popular necklace designs nowadays come in Kundan, diamond and gold.

Earrings

Your earrings and the necklace complement each other. Heavy ones can cause much pain to your ears. Also, diamond and stone studded earrings go with lighter pastel tones of the bridal wear while gold pieces look good with reds and maroons.

Nose Ring

Wearing a nose ring, whether a small stud or an elaborate one with a string that connects the nose ring and the earring is one’s personal choice. Though it is the most beautiful element of Indian jewelry, it may not necessarily suit every bride.

Bangles

Bangles, bangles and lots of bangles are what a traditional bride needs to don. On the wedding day, a bride is expected to wear real gold/diamond bangles. Girls wearing a chuda can slip in a few gold bangles or kadas at the beginning of the chuda. Also, in some Indian cultures, the tradition is to wear no gold but glass bangles of vibrant colours.

Payal and Toe Rings

An anklet or payal is worn by brides of almost all the different religions and cultures in India. Some wear it out of tradition and some for the look. Toe rings bear a deeper significance. In India, toe rings symbolize the mark of a married woman.

Waistband

Just like the maang tikka, waistbands are back in vogue. A slim and elegant waistband not only forms a part of the jewelry set but also enhances the beauty of the bare torso area.
