The Tomato Test

Hi all!

I can hear you thinking: "The Tomato Test"? Yes, that is the correct title for this post! Let me give you a short introduction to the idea behind this post.

A couple of weeks ago, I got the Bundle Monste imageplates in. They come in a set of 21 plates and are available via amazon. The plates have some great designs so I'm really happy to have these. However, while I was removing the foil that was on the plates, I literally sliced my finger open. Anyway.. This is the first part of my Bundle Monster Imageplates review :)

This post is picture heavy!

Because of that, the images on the Bundle Monster plates are slightly smaller so that might be something to think of for the ladies with longer or wider nails.

bundle monster imageplatesWe're getting to the core of this review. See the edges of this plate? They're really really sharp. To demonstrate this, let's meet todays assistant..

bundle monster imageplatesOi, that doesn't look really good, does it? Thankfully I can show you this on the tomato instead of on my own finger. The imageplate is as sharp as a knife! Damn, no wonder I sliced my finger open.

My conclusion; these imageplates have lovely images, but please please please be careful while working with these. I cut myself while getting the foil off, so I my advice is to hold the plate in the center of the plate while you're removing the plastic. Don't hold the plate around the edges, although it may be more comfortable (if you still have undamaged fingers, that is).

Besides that, my advice is to not let your children or other young kids play with these plates. If you decide to stamp images from these plates on the nails of children, do not leave them unattended. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that these plates can be very dangerous.

Have fun, but be careful as well :)

Elegant Wedding Dresses

Many Beautiful Choices For Elegant Wedding Dresses Available to Today's Bride

With all of the lovely gown styles available to brides, the bride-to-be can now have the type of fairytale wedding that she would like, no matter her budget or season in life. If the bride wishes to have an informal wedding, ceremony on a beach, or destination wedding, there are many elegant wedding dresses from which she may choose. Wedding gowns come in a plethora of fabrics, and brides can decide on either flowing organza or chiffon dresses, or the more traditional lace or satin and taffeta frocks, to wear for an unforgettable walk down the aisle.

If the wedding ensemble budget is limited, a bride still has a very wide selection of bridal gowns, that range in style from quite simple with very little beading and decoration, to the more elaborate gown made entirely of lace. The limited budget bride can also have her choice of elegant wedding dresses that range in length from above the knee to a sweet tea length, or an ankle length dress, which would look very charming with a pair of high heels. Beautiful straight or sheath gowns lend themselves quite well to destination weddings, as well as informal beach ceremonies, and oftentimes do not feature a train.

If the bride has more to invest in her wedding ensemble, she can pick from the host of styles that are more suited to an indoor or church ceremony. A fairytale wedding can be experienced by the bride while wearing a gown of traditional satin or taffeta, and trimmed with several different laces, including either the delicate Alencon or Chantilly lace, or for a more defined look, lovely Venice lace. These elegant wedding dresses may have straight skirts with detachable trains, or the bridal gown may have an elegant A-line silhouette with a chapel length train. A bridal gown with a full ball room style skirt often features a dramatic cathedral train, which is perfect for a fairytale Cinderella type ceremony.

For the bride that is not constrained by any budgetary means for her gown, she can have a lovey wedding dress made of the finest luxurious silk. There are some elegant wedding dresses that are created out of silk satin or taffeta, and these gowns often display very elaborate bead work of genuine pearls, Swarovski crystals and semi precious stones, such as rubies or even diamonds. These gowns are the ultimate in the fairytale wedding gown, with styling ranging from classically modest, to strapless evening looks.
