If you’re getting married this year, you have to check out these marvelous hair accessories!  2010 is all about the headbands and hairpins:

Tasha Flower Hair Clip – Lush rose crafted from raw-edge satin for an organic look that can be worn as a hair clip or pinned to clothing.  Available at Nordstrom for $28.

Starfish pinned to sleek locks are a creative touch for a beach wedding; complete this look with a flowing, halter-style wedding dress.

These days many brides are saying goodbye to the traditional solitaire and opting for bands instead.  Why? It’s cheaper, more practical in everyday life and totally chic!  Here are a few of Marvelous Girl’s wedding bands picks this season:

This mix of 18 karat yellow, white and rose gold by EV Jewelry Design is stunning.  On each of the pieces as a pave there are 120 round diamonds VS2 G color, Russian cut, totalling 1.20 karats.  Price: $3,457.00

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend this ring will never leave your sight!  A Timeless piece designed by Kwiat, it ranges from four to 15 karats and is set in platinum.  The price varies by karat size.

Black and white never goes out of style and that’s why we adore this ring.  With white and black diamonds in an 18-karat white gold setting, this knife-edge ring from Ivanka Trump is sheer elegance.  Price:  $2,300

Another masterpiece from EV Jewelry Design crafted in 4.75 DWT of18-karat white gold, with 140 round cut VS2 G color diamonds at 1.40 karat and 72 round cut VS2 G color diamond at 0.72 karat.  Price:  $2,094.00

National Cleaning Week is right around the corner (March 23-29).  Are you ready?  Instead of breaking out the broom and mop, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen suggests that people consider the following remodeling alternatives when contemplating ways to clean up their home’s appearance:

  • Refacing – Outdated kitchens and baths can get a quick upgrade by simply refacing cabinet frames and adding new door fronts and drawers. As long as the existing framework is in working order, wood veneers or laminates can be added for enhanced functionality and style.
  • Lighting upgrades – Well-placed, quality lighting can improve the overall beauty of a home while it can also help hide flaws. Install multi-functional fixtures and dimmers to assist in accenting specific items and brightening dark corners.
  • Bathtub liners – Say goodbye to hard-to-clean grout lines with the installation of an acrylic tub liner. Typically done in one day, this upgrade instantly brightens the room and is easier to clean and maintain.
  • Hardware – Replacing hardware, including items such as cabinet and drawer pulls or towel bars, can provide a simple, immediate update to any kitchen or bath.

“National Cleaning Week is an ideal time for people to restore their homes with a few simple tasks. Doing so can provide a breath of fresh air while simultaneously increasing the value of any home,” said Doug Dwyer, president and CSO of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen.
