Remove makeup before bed

Double cleanse your face by using micellar water followed by a mild face wash to remove makeup completely before you sleep. If you are too tired by the end of the da (especially after one too many celebratory cocktails), keep alcohol-free makeup remover wipes at your bedside for a quick cleanse.

Chapped lips fix

For instantly soft and lipstick-ready lips, mix sugar, coconut oil and honey and apply over lips. Leave on for 10 minutes and gently exfoliate lips with a clean toothbrush.

De-puff eyes

To avoid eye puffiness, elevate your head by using an extra pillow under the head when sleeping. This will prevent fluid pooling under the eyes. To temporarily reduce undereye puffiness, place chilled (brewed) green tea bags over closed eyes for 10mins.

Acne fix

Waking up with a pesky zit is every bride’s worst nightmare. Cleanse your face every night with a salicylic acid based face wash and exfoliate gently once a week. If you do breakout, resist the urge to pick at it. Instead, use acne patches with hydrocolloid to speed up healing and conceal acne under the wedding makeup.

Keep the frizz away

A tried and tested home remedy for shiny, frizz- free hair is to mix apple cider vinegar, yogurt, honey and aloe vera. Use this as a hair mask for 30-minutes and rinse off with a mild shampoo for glossy strands. (Patch test for possible allergies)

Don’t experiment

Last minute changes to your skin care routine might do more harm that good, since there isn’t enough time to recover from an unexpected reaction. Closer to the D-day, avoid any new products or treatments and stick to what you know suits your skin best.

Watch your diet

A week prior to the wedding, avoiding excessive consumption of dairy and high sugar foods will help prevent acne flares and bloating. Especially for those prone to rosacea, limiting intake of alcohol and spicy foods will ensure no redness flares.

Bride-to-be demands to use uncle’s house (and bedroom) for wedding day, calls it ‘family property’

Other people’s houses aren’t hotels.

While most brides dream of getting married in the perfect location, those locations aren’t always available. Unfortunately, as one uncle just found out, that doesn’t mean that the bride-to-be will accept that.

A homeowner in Souther Europe says that his niece is demanding to use a home he owns for her wedding and force his own family out of the house.

Posting under the name EurCas-ThAw, a seemingly frustrated homeowner shared his story on Reddit’s forums. According to him, he and his wife bought an old farmhouse in Southern Europe 28 years ago. Since then, the house has been nicknamed “the castle” by his family due to a small turret on the property.

After spending years fixing it up for their retirement, “the castle” has apparently become a very scenic location, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the owner’s family.

BRIDE SENDS ANGRY EMAIL TO COMPANY AFTER WEDDING DRESS ARRIVES INCORRECT, REALIZES SHE PUT IT ON INSIDE OUT

“Recently my niece got engaged and held an engagement party on Zoom at the weekend,” the homeowner wrote. “When asked what ideas they’d had so far she excitedly told me they’d actually been planning to ask us if they could hold the wedding at The Castle.”

The story continued, “I was a bit taken aback but didn’t want to outright refuse. I joked it would have to be a rather small wedding since they’d struggle to fit more than 25 people in the gardens. She gushed that she’d already thought it through and they’d put up canopies in the field nearby (we don’t own that land) and if all the guests stayed in hotels in the town she would arrange transport for ‘us all to get to the villa.’”

While the homeowners weren’t excited about the idea, they weren’t thrilled to hear the next part of the bride-to-be’s plan. He wrote, “she plans to use the master bedroom as the bridal suite and for the wedding party to have the remaining rooms. My wife, children and I would have to stay elsewhere.”

Not surprisingly, this was a deal-breaker. Apparently, however, this did not go over well with the bride-to-be or her mom (the homeowner’s sister). When the homeowners refused to allow the wedding on their property, “both (the bride-to-be) and my sister blew up at me telling me I was ruining her wedding and she’d always dreamed of marrying at The Castle. My sister even said since I used my inheritance, it’s ‘family property,’ which is obviously ridiculous.”

Reddit users seemed to agree that it was not unreasonable for the homeowners not to let someone take over their house for a wedding.

“Wait, there are people that believe that because you bought something with inheritance money, it’s a family property?” one user questioned. “I hope the mom is sharing everything she did with the inheritance then.”

Bride-to-be arranges entire wedding in a day to marry before lockdown

This couple has organised the most last-minute wedding, due to lockdown (Picture: Aly Harwood/SWNS)

What do you do when you want to tie the knot with the love of your life but there’s a country-wide time crunch? You do everything as quickly as possible, of course.

Bride Aly Harwood, 33, had to plan everything in a day to get hitched to partner Gareth Bateman, 34, before England’s second lockdown, which starts on Thursday.

The proactive bride rearranged the church, reception, flowers, and dress fittings all in a day to arrange for the big day on 3 November.

The couple had originally planned to say their vows on 20 November in front of 200 guests at Christ Church in North Shields, where three generations of Aly’s family previously wed.

And the couple of two years had arranged for a major reception at the stunning Wylam Brewery in Newcastle.

When the Covid-19 pandemic scuppered their plans, they scaled back the celebrations and restricted the number of guests to 30.

In their final, last-minute plan, Aly and Gareth will now tie the knot in front of just 14 close friends and family.

Aly, an underwriter for an insurance firm, said: ‘I was brought up overseas so I have a lot of friends in other countries and around 30 guests were supposed to come from abroad.

‘But on Saturday, I read the news that the government was going to introduce another lockdown, so I thought I’d give everyone a call and see what we can do.

‘I decided that I was going to get married before any lockdown came in.

‘Our vicar was great, she said she’d marry us at midnight if she had to.’

Aly added: ‘It was only ever about the wedding and getting married, we weren’t bothered about the glitz and the glamour that goes with it.

‘Thankfully, because everyone has pulled out all the stops, we will be able to have a celebration on the day as well.’

There will only be 14 guests at the wedding (Picture: Aly Harwood/SWNS)

Aly will become the fourth generation of her family to get married at the church when she walks down the aisle.

The couple will then head back to their local boozer, Cook and Barker, in Northumbria, for a wedding breakfast that includes a cheese and pork pie cake.

Due to travel restrictions and the short notice of the day, only 15 guests were planned for the big day.

And that was reduced to 14 when the best man was told he had to self-isolate because his childminder had displayed Covid symptoms.

Aly’s goddaughter, 21, will also act as the photographer on the day.

The bride-to-be added: ‘We just went for direct family, we both have small families so by the time you add in the bridesmaids and groomsmen, that’s your wedding party complete.

She is set to marry her partner Ryan Mahoney, after he proposed earlier this year. 

And Kerry Katona was getting ready for her nuptials on Saturday as she dressed as a zombie bride to celebrate Halloween with her fiancé and four of her kids. 

The former Atomic Kitten star, 40, looked amazing in the spooky ensemble which she paired with eerie make-up and a bouquet while her kids Lilly, 17, Heidi, 13, Max, 12, and DJ, six, were also getting festive in scary looks.

Kerry, who is also mother to Molly, 18, looked amazing in the white dress which flaunted her eye-popping cleavage through a mesh panel. 

Lily and Heidi meanwhile were both clad in devil outfits, Max as a skeleton, DJ as a dead cheerleader and Ryan as a ghost. 

She paired the look with a grey wig with bandages wrapped around while her face was adorned with masses of white, grey and red face paint.  

The star has plenty to celebrate after her boyfriend Ryan proposed to her during a Spanish holiday in Spain with the blessing of her five children.

Appearing on Loose Women last month, the television personality, who has been married three times, gave her first TV interview since her shock engagement. 

Speaking about telling Kerry’s five children before getting down on one knee, Ryan explained: ‘I thought it was the right thing to do.

‘Everyone was excited, everyone was on board. It was lovely in that respect. I went to pick the ring with DJ and Heidi. I think Max was asleep at the time.’

Kerry said she couldn’t believe DJ didn’t tell her. ‘For a six year old, she did really well. Crafty that one, I’ll watch out for her!’ she laughed. 

Carol McGiffin then asked Ryan what he would have done if the kids had said no and Ryan revealed: ‘If it was the youngest three, I would have brainwashed them with a McDonald’s, the older two, harder work.

‘But yeah, I don’t know really. I get along so well with them all so I kind of knew it was going to work… I’m really happy about it.’

Discussing why this marriage will be different, Kerry said: ‘Before, it’s always been about a wedding, I don’t want a wedding, I want a marriage. Ryan’s my partner, my life partner.

Olivia Attwood is every inch the blushing bride-to-be as she tries on wedding dresses

Olivia Attwood is every inch the blushing bride-to-be as she tries on wedding dresses ahead of her upcoming nuptials

Olivia Attwood was every inch the blushing bride-to-be as she posted a short clip as she tired on wedding dresses ahead of her upcoming nuptials. 

The TOWIE star, 29, got engaged to Blackburn Rovers midfielder Bradley Dack, 26, in Dubai in October 2019, and is currently planning her big day amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The former Love Island personality posted the short video on Tuesday, showing behind the scenes clips from a recent shoot for this week’s OK! magazine.

The clip showed her dancing and posing in several different wedding dresses and a slick tuxedo.

The Love Island star could be seen wearing a variety of styles, one with a plunge neckline and tightly-fitted, beaded bodice with a long train of netting. 

In another, she wore a bright white princess dress with layers of tulle from the waist downwards. 

In another look, she chose a black tuxedo with high-waisted trousers and pointed Christian Louboutin shoes.

The former grid girl revealed she had to completely change her wedding plans after the coronavirus pandemic meant she could no longer get married in an idyllic ceremony overseas. 

Olivia and Bradley have dated on and off for four years after first getting together before the star’s appearance on Love Island. 

They rekindled their relationship last year after the blonde was accused of faking her single status during her stint on Celebs Go Dating in 2018. 

The TV personality got back with the footballer shortly after the series finished airing and they now live in a luxury flat in Manchester.    

Olivia announced their engagement on Instagram last year as she posted photos of them on the beach in Dubai, flashing the pear-shaped ring.

Olivia Meets Her Match, a new show detailing her wedding preparations and life in Manchester with Bradley, will air later this month on ITVBe. 

The TV personality admitted although she hasn’t been able to invite all of her TOWIE and Love Island co-stars, Kem Cetinay, 24, will ‘probably’ be on the list. 

Kem is best friends with Olivia’s ex Chris Hughes who she met on ITV2’s Love Island in 2017.

Bride-To-Be Dies During Liposuction Surgery On Arms At Unlicensed Beauty Salon

A woman died after undergoing a liposuction surgery at an unlicensed beauty salon in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Saturday.

The woman, identified as 23-year-old Coco Siew Zhi Shing, was planning to get a liposuction surgery on her arms in preparation for her 2021 wedding with her fiancé in South Africa. While browsing the internet, the deceased found the beauty salon and decided to get the procedure done.

On Saturday afternoon, Shing arrived at the clinic along with a friend. She was administered with anesthesia and taken for the surgery. Half an hour later, the woman’s friend noticed that the surgeon was facing some difficulty during the surgery.

She immediately called an ambulance. On the way to the hospital, the medical staff realized that Shing’s heart had stopped and attempted to revive her. However, she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Speaking to World of Buzz, Shing’s brother said he rushed to the hospital after being notified about the incident by her friend. However, she had died by the time he arrived at the hospital. The unidentified brother went on to say that the person in charge of the beauty clinic came to the hospital almost three hours after the woman died and also confessed that they did not have the license to perform any liposuction procedure.

“Under our repeated questioning, the person in charge of the beauty salon revealed that they did not have an aesthetic clinic license. They were only operating under an ordinary beauty salon license and the doctor who performed the surgery on my sister did not have a professional aesthetic medical license,” he told the outlet.

He told China Press that the surgeon hadn’t admitted to her mistake and was yet to apologize.

A police case has been filed and the investigators are waiting for the autopsy results to determine the cause of death.

Malaysian Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (MSPRS) issued a warning, asking people to do a background check before deciding to undergo the procedure. 

“They may disguise themselves as ‘medical doctors’ or use fancy medical terms to entice their clients to do the procedures. They often offer a remarkably lower price compared to a licensed medical clinic/hospital. Higher complication rates and even death have been reported in these unlicensed practices. It is crucial to check on the invasiveness, risk involved, premise license, and service provider qualification before undergoing any aesthetic procedure. If in doubt, please contact the relevant authorities for confirmation,” the organization said in a statement. 

Meanwhile, Shing’s friend, Ke Xin, took to Facebook to pay tribute to her.

“We met each other when we were 13 years old in Zun Kong Independent High School. At that time, you were very tall and was always the talk of the whole school no matter where you went. When you decided to get married next year, I was really happy and excited for you. I told myself that this important person in my life is about to embark on a new journey and

  • People criticized the bride-to-be. saying a wedding should not be about gifts 

A bride-to-be was slammed online after revealing she is considering uninviting her sister from her wedding because she cannot afford an expensive wedding gift. 

The woman, believed to be from the US, explained her sister had called her in tears because she doesn’t have enough money to buy any of the expensive presents listed on the registry. 

The bride-to-be then asked whether she should add more affordable gifts to her list, accept cash gifts, or simply ‘dis-invite’ her sister. 

She shared her conundrum to the That’s It, I’m Wedding Shaming Facebook group, where people were quick to mock her and branded her materialistic.

The bride asked for advice on whether she should request cheaper gifts, accept cash or uninvite her sibling – but people slammed her for even considering the latter

In the Facebook post, initially shared on an alternative group, she wrote: ‘Hey queens, I’m getting married next year, and I just sent my gift registry to all of the “confirmed” guests.

‘My sister called in tears, and said she can’t afford anything on my gift registry.’

She then put forward three potential solutions to her conundrum, writing: ‘Should I: Put some cheap things that I don’t really need on my gift registry to make sure people who can’t afford it don’t feel bad; put a note on the gift registry to say that cash gifts are also acceptable; disinvite my sister from my wedding.’ 

The bride-to-be signed off the post with ‘Namaste’, followed by a prayer emoji. 

While she didn’t specify whether she was joking or not, people certainly didn’t find her post funny.

Many claimed they were shocked that she wanted gifts so badly that forgoing wedding presents was not even an option.

‘A wedding isn’t about gifts. I hate people like this,’ one commented. 

Another mocked the bride by writing: ‘Sorry ur poor? disinvited [sic].’

And one suggested: ‘If you’re that greedy over gifts, maybe tell people before you invite them so they don’t feel bad about ditching your wedding.’ 

Some people poked fun at the fact the bride used the Hindu greeting ‘namaste’ to end her message

Others made fun of the bride for using the Hindu greeting ‘namaste’, with one commenting: ‘Na ma steeeee away from your wedding.’ 

‘You can namaste the hell away from me with that ridiculously expensive gift registry,’ another said.
