Beauty Pageant Preparations: Hair Accessories For Your Little Girl

More and more parents are entering their girls into beauty pageants because it allows their princess to strut across the stage and show her beautiful smile in an adorable dress and a little jewelled tiara. Recent movies have added to this trend as popular films such as Little Miss Sunshine showcasing children’s beauty pageants.

Hair accessories can add to your child’s adorable look by adding a bit of flare to their outfit. What you have to ensure is that you choose the right hair accessory to complete her look. Keep in mind that these beauty pageants are meant to be fun, so don’t go overboard with stressing for the occasion, just do a little research and put together the cutest little costume that you can think of.

To help you put the outfit together we’ve come up with some tips on hair accessories including baby headbands and hair fascinators below:

Tips on Wearing Hair Accessories

You can’t go wrong with baby headbands that are lined with sequins and diamonds as one of the choice hair accessories for your little girl as she walks on the stage. You can also try using black velvet headbands to give her the classic look of Audrey Hepburn and Judy Garland. If you prefer sophistication, you can always have crystals in any of your hair accessories such as a diamond-encrusted hair clip.

As you prepare your daughter for the talent portion, make sure that her hair complements her pageant dress and routine. For example, a hair fascinator decorated with exotic feathers is great for a classic dance number like a musical while a simple hair clip embellished with satin ribbons looks good in a solo singing scene.

When choosing the right hair accessories, consider the colour and length of your daughter’s hair. Learn to mix and match. Don’t restrict the natural flow of the hair by putting the hair in a ponytail, use a barrette to hold her hair in place instead. Also, always remember to place the hair fascinator or hair clip properly so that her hair doesn’t cover the face.

Tiaras in Beauty Pageants

Winning the beauty pageant of course means wearing the Winners Tiara. Just like a wedding tiara, the beauty pageant tiara is also encrusted with jewels, diamonds, and other precious stones (of course most of these are replicas when it comes to our little one’s pageant).

Most Important of All

Always remember it’s not about the right baby headbands, hair clip, hair fascinator or any other of the hair accessories. It’s about your daughter enjoying the process and most of all enjoying the event when it comes to beauty pageants. Like everything in her life it should be educational and fun. So forget the stress and the competition, just put together an adorable outfit and let your daughter smile and laugh her way to the podium. Also all the tips and tricks we have provided in this article don’t just have to be for beauty pageants, they can also be used just for the family Sunday trip to Grandma’s house as a little dress up is always a fun time for mother and daughter.

Things to Know Before Getting Dental Braces, Plus a Little Secret

About 50% of the population would significantly benefit from some extent of orthodontic treatment. Dental braces are also good for curing a jaw problem, and thus are the most well-liked form of dental treatment. Earlier, they were used almost only on youngsters but now many adults are also opting to put on braces to perk up their look. Older braces were made of metal, yet they successfully realign your teeth to form a straighter look. These braces were extremely itchy and painful when they were first worn. The user would ultimately become habitual to the braces and then will feel less irritation. The wires of the braces require tightening after every few weeks, making the expense about $5000 for the whole experience.

Below are basic things you must know before going for the braces—

  • Get advice from a good and reputed dentist.
  • What is the cost of braces? On an average, it costs about around $5,000 USD for braces on lower and upper teeth for two years for metal braces.
  • Go through your health plan thoroughly and make sure that your clear on what insurance covers.
  • Do not over-expect, be prepared of the effect of braces in your life.
  • Above all you must be careful with your oral hygiene when you go for braces.
  • Orthodontists suggest you:

1. Avoid all carbonated, sweetened drinks.

2. Smokers also have to stop smoking before spending the money for this expensive treatment, because nicotine may cause yellow stains if you are wearing the dental braces.

Now the secret stuff. Metal braces are the way of the past. You can get invisalign braces which are clear, and mostly put on the back side of your teeth, so no one even knows you have them. The newer braces now only take 6 months from start to finish. Imagine only having braces inbetween your teeth cleaning appointments, and you are done; and the best part, is the price. It is no where near $5 grand.

Psychiatry’s Nice Little Earner

Psychiatry’s Nice Little Earner
I have mentioned in previous articles – with, admittedly, some disdain – psychiatry’s so-called Diagnostic Manual.

 

Its full title is: “The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).”

 

This sounds terribly impressive, scientific and medical, as well it must because it is this manual that comprises psychiatry’s “billing bible” of so-called mental disorders.

 

If a psychiatrist labels someone with one or more of the fancy sounding disorders listed in the manual, the label will stick and provide all the evidence needed for psychiatry to begin “treatment” for the “disorder” and bill the person’s insurance company, government or whatever sucker stumps up the dough.

 

The illness MUST of course be real because it (a) has a fancy name and (b) is mentioned in a book. The treatment to which the poor devil now stuck with a psychiatric label is subjected is almost always (a) a hit and miss drugging with various dangerous pills and potions or (b) electric shocks or (c) removing bits of his brain or (d) some combination of these.

 

The victim…..sorry, I mean patient….. usually deteriorates, which is hardly surprisingly considering the mistreatment to which he is subjected. The deterioration requires more expensive treatment, which causes further deterioration.

 

This is wonderful for psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry in that it enables them to rake in the lucre but rather less so for the patient, who could hardly have fared worse if one had merely put his head in a meat grinder and had done with it.

 

But what of the DSM upon which the whole money-making wheeze is based?

 

Well, have a look at it when you have a moment. It makes a fascinating read.

 

The first thing you will notice is that almost every nuance of human behavior is included in its list of “disorders” requiring treatment. Virtually any frame of mind south of total godlike perfection is, according to psychiatry, a mental illness, which means all of us are bonkers. Therefore all of us are candidates for a psychiatric label and expensive drugging or brain mincing, for which our medical  insurance or government will foot the bill.

 

For example, shyness—a common life situation—is now categorized as “Social Anxiety Disorder” (SAD). The shy person, already suffering from shaky self-confidence will no doubt be bolstered to discover that not only is he bashful but he has a diseased brain to boot.

 

The psychiatric drugging industry is already a money-spinning monster but no matter how huge it grows, psychiatrists are hard at work inventing new disorders to add to their manual and thus make their net even larger.

With the DSM, psychiatry has taken countless aspects of human behavior and reclassified them as a mental illness simply by adding the term “disorder” onto them. Believe it or not, that is the sum total of science that goes into the manual!

 

Even key DSM contributors admit that there is no scientific or medical validity to the disorders, yet the DSM nevertheless serves as a diagnostic tool, not only for individual treatment, but also for duping officialdom in child custody disputes, court testimony, and so forth.

 

Both the manual’s “disorders” and the psychiatric diagnosis that someone is suffering from the disorder completely lack scientific criteria. Anyone can be labeled mentally ill, and subjected to dangerous and life-threatening treatments based solely on opinion.

 

Imagine if you went to your doctor suffering from an itchy nose and the doctor took one look at you and made up a diagnosis off the top of his head: “Proboscis Disorder. Very serious. Here, take this drug. Don’t be alarmed by the side effects. That will be $500 please!”

 

Not very scientific is it? Well that is about the same order of science employed by psychiatry, except their “Proboscis Disorder” appears in an impressive-looking book.

 

Hard to grasp? What you are looking at here is a scam. Let me repeat how it works: observe some aspect of human behavior; call it a “disorder” quite arbitrarily and off the top of your head, no tests or experimentation involved; label some people as suffering from the disorder; start administering drugs, electro-shock or whatever; bill their insurance companies or government; and….well, that’s it!

 

Here by way of illustration is a fictitious example: Joe is lethargic due to bad diet. Observe sluggishness in Joe and similar behavious in a few other people, although reasons for lethargy might vary (bad diet, hangover, virus etc). Don’t investigate to discover why Joe and others are lethargic or even whether each lethargy case springs from the same cause. Merely invent a name for the symptoms that does not explain or establish understanding: “Sloth Disorder.” Enter “Sloth Disorder” in DSM with a description of symptoms, (“sloth…etc.”) Diagnose a few people as having Sloth Disorder. Write out prescription for brain damaging drugs. Bill insurance company. Due to drugs person becomes agitated. Invent “Agitation Disorder”. Diagnose. Drug. Bill.

 

“A nice little earner.” as we say in England.

 

At least, our criminals do.

A Little Inexpensive Help For Number 1

My friend; former Baltimorean and Navy Veteran, P.E. Fletcher, sent me an email recently, that extolled the virtues of using ‘Honey and Cinnamon’, as a balm to keep the body running when practically nothing else will. Having come across a similar article many years ago, I admit I had become a believer of sorts, and had incorporated many of the suggested uses into my living routine.

In this time of hard economic realities and in the face of fear by many, of the threat posed by H1N1, I thought that it certainly would not hurt to pass this information along to people who may be interested in the huge body of Alternative Remedies/Medicines, that exist in our society. I am sure there are volumes written already and I have no dispute with any of them. Fact of the matter is, this is in front of me now, and causing me to remember my own experience on the subject.

I can always remember eating cinnamon on/in different foods. It was used to enhance the taste of pies and cakes and toast. On the other hand, it has only been since becoming an older adult, that I have acquired a taste and appreciation for honey. I think also, that I was abetted by my dreadful fear of bring stung by the “Honey Bee”.

I wish also to assure you that I am not a medically trained person and I offer this only as it relates to things I have experienced or been told by relatives and friends.

Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:

It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.

Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 (my birthday) has given the following list o f diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada , various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

ARTHRITIS:
Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University , it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS:
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

CHOLESTEROL:
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol. I’m going to start using a tub of Cinnamon Honey Butter a week.

COLDS:
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS:
According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION:
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘ Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY:
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea.
Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

PIMPLES:Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root

SKIN INFECTIONS:Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.WEIGHT LOSS:Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.CANCER:
Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

FATIGUE:
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week..

BAD BREATH:
People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS:
Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

I am a strong advocate for periodic check-ups by medical professionals. On the other-hand, I abhor medicines and the often conflicts they cause. I do all I can to stay as far away from them as possible, and support the “Ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” mindset.

What about you? How do you feel about medicines, cures and home remedy’s? What has worked for you and do you believe the Honey and Cinnamon is a fix for anything?
