What Is the Job of a Choreographer?

You might be one of the millions of people around the world who enjoys watching skilled dancers perform very complicated dance routines. If this is the case, you need to appreciate the person who created the choreography for the dancers to follow as they are dancing. This person is called a choreographer. There are a wide variety of places where a choreographer can find employment. There is also a lot more to this particular job than most people realize. Here are some of the various responsibilities that a choreographer has.

1. Creating the choreography

This can be a long process that involves thinking up the precise movements of many different dancers. This process becomes even more complicated if there will be dancers performing different dance steps at the same time. This is often the case with very large shows that involve dozens of dancers being on stage together. Each separate piece of choreography must be designed in such a way that it flows perfectly with the other dancers that are performing different choreography. There is a great deal of trial and error when a choreographer is trying to come up with new dance routines for a show. Craig Revel Horwood is one of the most successful choreographers in the world.

2. Music selection

The selection of the music is very important to the overall look and feel that the choreography is going to have for the audience watching it. The music will also determine the tempo of the performance. A choreographer will need to know what song he or she is going to use before the dance steps can start to be planned. All of the movements of the choreography need to be perfectly synchronized with the music in order for them to have the most visual appeal and impact. 

3. Teaching the choreography to dancers

The choreographer will have an entirely new task after he or she has finished creating all of the dance steps that will be used in the performance. It will then be the responsibility of the choreographer to teach all of these dance steps to the dancers. His or her job will not be finished until they are able to perform them flawlessly when they are on stage in front of a live audience. Rehearsals can last a very long time. Some choreographers employ assistants to help speed up the process.

5 Summer Fashion Tips for the Cute Girl

The summertime heat can make it difficult to care about fashion when all you want to do is cover yourself in icicles and lay down in an air-conditioned room. The good news is that your summer wardrobe doesn't have to make you hot or uncomfortable. Here are just a few summer fashion tips that will keep you both cool and stylish.

1. Get a Pedicure

Forget about socks and shoes. Sweaty feet will make your entire body feel hot from the ground up, so replace all of your sneakers with flip-flops and sandals. As long as you have a cute pedicure, there's no reason to be embarrassed about showing your toes to the world.

2. Embrace Leggings

Leggings will keep you modest while also allowing you to ditch those hot, heavy jeans for something lighter. Polar fleece leggings are an especially good choice for the summertime heat because they're made of polyester and spandex. Instead of denim dragging you down, you can dance on the beach in a pair of cool, fun leggings.

3. Buy the Right Makeup

Waterproof makeup costs a little more than "regular" makeup, but it'll be worth it once you start sweating. You can also search for brands and ingredients that are more heat-resistant than others. Liquid foundation, for example, is better than powder foundation for long hours spent in the sun.

4. Swap Your Handbag

Extravagant purses are fine for winter, but once the temperature starts climbing, those black leather straps are going to be torture against your bare arms. Consider switching to a clutch instead. You'll still be able to carry around the essentials, but you won't be weighed down by an unnecessarily large handbag.

5. Watch Your Colors

Everyone knows that black fabric absorbs the sun while white reflects it, but unless you plan on a very monochrome summer, you'll still need to inject some color into your wardrobe. Think about light-colored pastels and bright, happy hues to keep you from attracting UV rays. You can also do a lot with white "base layers" and colored accessories. For example, you can wear a white tank top with chunky red necklaces or a bright blue blazer.

You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort. With these summertime fashion tips, you'll stay cool and sweat-free while also impressing all those cute boys down at the beach. Have fun!

5 Projects to Beautify the Homestead

You're not the only one that can benefit from fine beauty products. With the right projects around the house, your home could have a proverbial face-lift. This isn't only to impress the neighbors, however. The condition and appearance of your home can influence your own emotional states. In fact, some of these additions have been scientifically proven to improve stress levels.

Fixing the Foundation

Like any feature, the base of the home should be sturdy. Fixing problems in the foundation now allows you to make other improvements without worrying about other problems later on. As with your skin, cracks in the foundation can be an eyesore. Without proper repairs, these cracks can lead to more severe problems such as leaks.

Exterior Painting

One of the quickest ways to add beauty to the home is by putting up a fresh coat of paint. Complete with highlighting the trim, the house can take on a whole new appearance. In a way, it's like adding makeup to accent it's features. As a result, the new paint can easily turn a few heads.

Accentuating the Windows

Features that accentuate the windows can be a welcome addition to any home. For instance, an awning can be practical as well as cosmetic. They provide shade while highlighting that particular window. Even the actual framework of the window itself can change the appearance of the entire home.

Well-Groomed Lawn

Your landscaping may be one of those features which stand out the most to your neighbors. Lawn care, planting flowers and even adding trees could make a profound difference in the beauty of the property. Also, studies show that people who surround themselves with plant life suffer from less stress. A lot of these projects don't cost a lot to implement and can be a wondrous addition.

Roof Repairs

The roof does more for your home than just keep the water from leaking into the structure. Things like hail damage, cracks or even holes can impact how people see the house. It's not only a visual concern as repairs also have a realistic practical purpose. The last thing you want is moisture to add to mold growth in your beautiful home.

You may be pleasantly surprised with what you can accomplish with the right contractor leads. Having a professional help you beautify the home could be worth the effort. As a result, you may live a happier and healthier lifestyle. Of course, this also depends on what kinds of additions you implement. Take a look at your home today and consider what can be changed for tomorrow. Your home should look exactly how you feel.

Find Sales and Discounts for Online Clothes Shopping

You might enjoy the freedom that the Internet gives you when it comes to shopping for clothing and many other items. There are certainly an enormous amount of sites that sell clothes for you to choose from. However, you should not simply make your purchases from the first site you find that sells the items that you desire. You need to be selective in order to ensure that you get the most bang for your buck. Much has been written regarding the best ways to go about purchasing things online. There are many schools of thought on this subject. Here are a few of the best ways to be a smart online clothing shopper.

1. Patience is the key

Many people make the mistake of rushing their purchases. However, this will often result in the person paying much more money than they need to. There are many sites competing for your money. You need to use this to your advantage. Make a list of all the sites that are selling the item you want. Keep track of how much they are selling the item for. You will always be better off if you invest some time into researching and comparing prices. You might be surprised at how much the prices can vary.

2. Hunt for deals

Websites that sell clothing are just like real clothing stores. They will often have sales to attract new customers and to get rid of old inventory. Therefore, you should seek out discounts wherever you can find them. There are sites you can go to that will alert you when specific sites like Peak Boutique online are having a sale. You can also go to coupon sites. These sites will provide coupons that you can use to save money on a wide variety of items. 

3. Free shipping

You will be able to save a great deal of money if you only do your shopping on sites that offer free shipping. In some cases, sites will require customers to make purchases totaling a minimum dollar amount in order to qualify for free shipping.

4. 24-hour customer service

You never know when you will have a question about your order. Therefore, it is always nice if the site you are buying your clothing from has customer service operators standing by to help you at any time of the day or night. This will allow you to get your problem solved quickly.

New Dental Options Giving People a Renewed Chance at Beauty

In the past, if you had bad teeth, you had a difficult time making it in the world of fashion and beauty. Simply put, the "total package" includes the face, and models or actors without great teeth were relegated to minor roles. That was especially true of people who were missing teeth. Whether you were born without some teeth or you lost teeth to extraction, you could expect to get bad looks because of the holes in your mouth. The old dental implant approach was so faulty and unimpressive that many people chose to live with holes in their mouths rather than shell out the money. That's changing, though, as new dental technology is giving people a chance to make it in the world of beauty. 

Today if you are looking for Dental Implants Denver Co, they are done in a way that's less painful, more permanent, and more cost effective. Simply put, dental implants can involve lasers. The process can put into place teeth that look real as opposed to the bad looking teeth of the past. No longer are individuals relegated to dentures, which can be cumbersome and take away from natural beauty. Instead, people are getting the equivalent of real teeth, giving them an opportunity to have the confidence you need in your smile to succeed in the beauty industry. 

Confidence matters for people who want to look their best. It's impossible to get up on stage or in front of a camera if you aren't confident in how you will look. You will end up being sheepish, which will come through to the people on the other side of the camera. With dental technology being as good as it is today, many people cannot tell the difference between a real tooth and an implant. This is especially true for front teeth, which tend to be quite real looking out of expediency. As more people have determined that they wouldn't let a bad tooth situation stop them from going into the field of their dreams, the dental world has had to keep up with the trends. 

The world is changing in a good way. Today, if you want to be a player in the beauty industry, you have options. Even if you weren't born with perfect teeth or you lost a tooth somewhere along the way, you can benefit from technology and live your dreams. Many people are doing it.

Making a Great Impression

Whether you are meeting new friends or making professional contacts, first introductions can be overwhelming. Instead of being stressed over a meeting, try to stay confident. There are plenty of ways that you can be certain that you are impressive to those you are meeting. 

Choose Clothes Carefully 
When you pick out your clothes for an important event, be sure to choose an outfit that you feel confident wearing. Choose the color that looks best on you, and be careful to wear clothes that you feel comfortable in. For example, you may love a favorite sleeveless blouse, but you may not be comfortable wearing it in a professional setting. You can add a jacket to it or choose a more conservative style to make yourself feel confident and comfortable at business events. This will help you stay focused on your agenda instead of worrying about your wardrobe. 

Consider Your Plans 
Keep your schedule in mind when you decide on shoes for an event. If you will be doing a lot of walking, then consider taking a pair of flat shoes along. Wearing high heels can become stressful if you are not used to wearing them. Make sure that the shoes you choose are comfortable and stylish. Tuck a pair of comfortable shoes in your bag in case your feet begin to hurt during the day. 

Flash a Smile 
Facial expressions are an important part of communication, and it is important to smile when talking with others. When you meet people, your smile is one of the first qualities they will notice about you. A bright smile can help you light up a room when you walk in. If you are not pleased with your smile, then there are several options that are available to help you achieve a better smile. Dentistry websites, such as, have pictures that show the possibilities available. 

If you are able to stay confident and greet people with a warm smile, then you will be able to make a positive first impression. When people introduce themselves to you, try to repeat their names back to them if you can. Many people appreciate this level of personal attention.

Updating Fashion and Style

One of the great benefits of living in the present age is that there are so many options in terms of clothing, jewelry and style that can make shopping fun and exciting. At the same time, it may be easy to become overwhelmed at the many options that are on the market today. However, keep these tips in mind when thinking about new attire and style.

Having Fun
When entering that special store to seek new clothing, do not forget to be bold. Take advantage of sales that are within a preapproved budget. Look at those shoes or that fragrance that is on the counter. Have fun by trying out multiple outfits that may look cute. In fact, a clothing adventure may be best had at a local mall or outlet mall. An individual can take an entire day to look for clothes, and there is nothing wrong with that. After all, clothes are meant to be worn each day, and it makes sense that finding the right ones will take more than just a few moments. 

Throwing Out
While purchasing new clothing can certainly be helpful as well as beneficial, do not forget to look at a wardrobe in order to see what needs to be thrown out or given away. The reality is that it is hard to throw out clothes. Clothes can inspire memories that people cherish. A pair of shoes that are falling apart may have been worn during a college graduation ceremony. A favorite blouse was worn during a memorable date. While memories and clothes are not bad, memories can prevent individuals from getting rid of articles of clothing that do not work well anymore. The same is true for jewelry and fragrances. Therefore, it may be helpful to have a non-biased friend give support and comfort when it is time to purge the closet. Perhaps making a realistic goal of getting rid of a few clothes can help inspire individuals to throw out some item that will never be worn. 

Remember that it is good to be intentional when it is time to update fashion and style. Give oneself time when looking for the right attire. Whether it is time to purchase reusable tote bags with logo or a new tank top that goes well with a favorite pair of shoes, be sure to have fun and get something great.

Beauty Box 5 - Beauty Box 5 Review

Does your makeup lineup need a little spring cleaning?  Now is the perfect time to ditch your old, drab winter beauty routine and opt for something lighter and brighter for spring..  Beauty Box 5 has just what my spring beauty routine has been longing for: pretty perfume, brighter eyes and skin and of course the perfect mani!  Check it out below.

Spring and flowers go hand in hand.  And nothing puts me in the mood for spring like a pretty, new floral scent like the Colour Me Sky Blue Fragrance.  Notes of jasmine and a peppery freesia make this scent one that will keep you feeling feminine and pretty all day long!  If it's brighter, more youthful eyes that you are looking for then be sure to check out the Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum.  Banish puffiness, wrinkles and dark circles with this beauty multi-tasker.  A tiny dab is all you need to do the trick. Apply morning and night for beautiful results!

My absolute favorite new way to instantly refresh, brighten and add a pop of pretty color to my face is the MAI Couture Blush and Highlighter Papers.  Theses sheets are hands down the neatest and fastest way to add cheek color on the go "sans" a brush!  Simply swipe the highly pigmented sheets on cheeks whenever you need a quick pick me up! And finally, the Personail Custom Floral Nail Polish Wrap is my favorite way to get the perfect mani minus the long drying time.   These wraps are the easiest way to create a gorgeous, professional looking mani.  Apply the wraps, seal with a top coat and you are all set to start flaunting your digits.

So, if Beauty Box  5 is something that interests you then please check them out and let me know what you think. Till then!  B.

Understanding How Modern Laser Anti-Aging Treatments Vary

The world of anti-aging treatments today is full of options, but the most popular are the laser procedures used to reverse signs of aging. But even if you decide you want to undergo laser treatment it's still a confusing field. That's because there are so many variations in modern laser types and methods of operation.

Some laser types are old standbys that have been used to treat skin problems for years. Others are much newer, but equally as good at treating various skin issues. Let's look at some of the top types and their uses now.

Fraxel, or Fractional Photothermolysis, Laser Treatments

One of the newest types of lasers on the market today is the fractional photothermolysis laser, but you might know it better by its common name of Fraxel. In order to see how Fraxel lasers work, you need to understand that many skin problems we see as we age occur because our bodies stop producing as much collagen as they used to. Collagen is sometimes known as a cellular building block or as a binding agent that helps to hold skin cells together.

Fraxel medical lasers are quickly becoming an industry favorite because they come with very few risks, and they can treat every layer of skin by using a light that creates tiny holes straight through each layer. The small amount of damage inflicted by the laser beams can jump start the body's own mechanisms and get it to make more collagen, as well as other useful components.

Ablative Laser Treatments Are Another Option

Ablative lasers are a bit more invasive than Fraxel devices. They are actually so powerful that they have the capability to completely remove the top layer of skin, giving it a fresher appearance, at least eventually.

Unfortunately, the ablative laser treatment process is a bit more risky than a Fraxel treatment because it causes so much damage to that outer layer. If you have an ablative treatment, that will mean that you should expect immediate bleeding while you're undergoing the process. You can also plan on being vulnerable to possible infections until your skin heals, which is why you'll have to follow your technician's after care instructions very carefully. Nevertheless, it may be the better choice of the two, especially if you want to treat deep scars or wrinkles.

A Third Option is a Non-Ablative Laser Treatment

As you might have figured out by the name, a non-ablative laser doesn't do much to the outer layer of a patient's skin. Instead, it treats lower layers. The advantage is that non-ablative lasers don't leave patients vulnerable to infection. However, they also aren't as strong as other laser procedures. So, you may have to repeat the process more often, and you also aren't likely to be able to treat deeper wrinkles or scars well with that type of process.

The best way to choose your best treatment is to compare not only these three options, but also other skincare treatments. Talk them over with your dermatologist or doctor and see what they think your best choice would be as well. Then you should be able to clear up your skin in a hurry.
