Many people think that painting an interior wall is like an easy design fixing and think that painting with a light color needs only one coating, but that will be in rare cases according to the previous paint color, if it is light and same color then it is possible for one coating.

For starting of painting the first thing, you need to do is move all furniture away from the walls and remove wall papers, photos, and any other items which are hanging from the wall. Also remove the electrical plates and the outlet covers. After removing the switch plates replace the screws so that they may not missed or get lost. After that, cover all the flooring with the drop cloths.

Then, the next step is to remove all the dust from the wall and clean the walls thoroughly by using the cleaning solution of household. Then after that rinse them with water and allow them to dry. Then again prime the areas of strains by using the oil based primer.

Tips for Choosing A Wedding Cakes on a Budget

by Jonathan Cogley

The Wedding cake is the most important in a wedding. It is the centerpiece of the wedding reception and aside from the bride, features in more photographs than almost anything else. However, wedding cake is the most costly that can increase your budget.

Below are the tips for choosing a wedding cake in a budget:

Suppose if you don’t have enough budgets then just have the wedding cake as part of the meal. There is no need of displaying the traditional cake that is served for the same purpose as the wedding cake. You can serve white chocolate cake decorated with full of fruits and nuts and flowers to the guests and also it can be a centerpiece.

Buy a simple iced cake available in different flavors and sizes. If you select three flavors and each of different size then you can make a layered cake by stacking them using cake stands. Then you arrange this cake with ribbons, shiny metal sheets, fruits etc. according to your wish. It will look like a classic cake but inexpensive.

Instead of buying flowers separately for decorating cakes, buy some more flowers while ordering flowers for your entire wedding. This will reduce some amount of money on the cakes.

Buy fake cakes to place on the small wedding cake. This is needs when you wanted to place the cake as a centerpiece of the wedding. Suppose your small cake is enough to feed for all the guests who are attended to your wedding, then there is no need of going for a larger cake which is costlier. So, here you can reduce the cost of the cake.

Whenever you are budgeting for your cake, don’t forget to decide how you are going to serve it. Suppose you wanted to send some piece of cake with your guests then consider the cake boxes as well as cake itself.

by Jonathan Cogley

To women, wedding day is a very important day. Not only is the bride going to be joining herself to a man for life, but she has to do so in front of an entire lot of people gathered at the function. She is the glittering personality at the function; that is why everyone eyes are on her. So she has to look her best on that day. Makeup is an essential part of the beautification process on the special day. It is, however, important for a bride to know some important makeup tips that she finds very helpful.

Following are five wedding makeup tips for brides:

1) The wedding gown should not be worn while putting on makeup: Wait until the makeup has been applied before putting on the wedding dress. This avoids the risk of stains falling on the dress before the ceremony.

2) Use sunscreen: If your wedding is planned outside, it is essential that every bride should use a sunscreen with SPF 30. Using it on the face, arms, or any exposed areas on the skin can prevent sunburn and subsequently skin that is too pink.

3) Use waterproof mascara: Weddings are infamous for making the onset of tears. Using waterproof mascara will prevent the makeup from streaming down her face. Two coats of waterproof mascara will be adequate to prevent tears.

4) Use foundation to even out the skin tone: The color of the bride’s face should not be too different from the rest of her exposed skin, such as neck and arms. Using foundation that matches her complexion is a good way to combat that situation.

5) Use a brighter lipstick: Using a colorful lipstick brightens up the bride’s look and keeps her from appearing too bland. Use a lipstick that is moderate in look.
