High Fashion Shoes, 5 Trends and How to Make them More Comfortable- It’s difficult to discuss high-fashion women’s shoes without discussing high heels. After all, heels or pumps tend to dominate the fashion world. Women love them, men love to look at them. They make women look more attractive and feel bolder, a combination that’s hard to beat. When it comes to the trends in high-fashion shoes there is also one thing to keep in mind . That is high fashion doesn’t need to mean uncomfortable. The two can absolutely go hand-in-hand, and should.

“You want to love the shoes you are wearing, but you also want them to feel great on your feet,” explains Cedrick McDonald, owner of Exotics by Cedrick. “As an artist, I want to give the world beautiful shoes. I love the way their confidence soars when they put them on. It leaves us both feeling great.”

Here are 5 trends in high-fashion shoes:

  1. Designer. Donning a pair of designer shoes makes a bold statement, and that’s the direction people are taking. Designer shoes show some personality, preferences, and are seen as a status symbol.
  2. Bold with bling. Who doesn’t love some bling as a finishing touch for their outfit? With shoes that have bling, you are always ready to go and dress things up. Exotics by Cedrick offers a patented bottom outsole that features snakeskin and Swarovski crystals. It doesn’t get any more bold with bling than that.
  3. Comfort. Nobody wants to wear shoes that hurt their feet. The new trend is in ensuring that shoes are comfortable. Comfortable shoes will help people be more confident and happier.
  4. Heels and more heels. Having different types of heels is always in style. Women love the look, the way they make them feel, and the multitude of designs that they come in. Find heels that match your personality and you are all set.
  5. Shoes with meaning. Being able to choose shoes that come from a company that gives back to special causes makes wearing them that much better. People today appreciate shoe brands that give back to charities. Exotics by Cedrick has a passion for helping the cause of fighting AIDS in the world, and donates proceeds from the sale of every pair of shoes to the AIDS Foundation.

“Whether you follow the trends or help set them, we all love to see what’s going on with them,” added McDonald. “We can all agree that we love fine shoes and the way they make us feel. I bring my artistic ability to every pair of shoes I create, helping to set the trends.”

When it comes to making heels more comfortable, there are some things you can do. They include wearing them around the house for a few hours to help stretch them out and get them more broken in, putting some padded inserts in them, investing in good quality heels to begin with, and taking good care of your heels to keep them in excellent working condition. Also, choose a high heel that has a great outsole, because that’s where the magic is in keeping it comfortable. A good outsole offers extra padding at the ball, which is where most of your weight is applied.

McDonald is a bit of a pioneer in the shoe industry, having created a style that is unique enough to earn a U.S. patent. His line of designer footwear features high-fashion pumps with 4-6” heels that have an eye-catching snakeskin out sole that is encrusted with Swarovski crystals on the bottom of every shoe.  They are shoes that help make a statement not only about the designer, but about the person wearing them.

Started in 2016, Exotics by Cedrick is high-fashion shoe line that has been turning heads from the Golden Globes to the MTV Movie and TV Awards. The company motto is Live Life Through Your Soles, and he’s created unique-looking soles that stand out and make a statement. McDonald is a serial entrepreneur who owns several businesses in addition to Exotics by Cedrick. From the Tampa area, he aims to help set the trends in the high fashion world. To create his shoes, he starts with a hand sketch, usually in the middle of the night, and then creates the rendered design on CAD.

About Exotics by Cedrick: Owned by Cedrick McDonald, Exotics by Cedrick, a celebrity fashion and footwear designer, is a Tampa-based high-fashion high heel shoe company. The company has a patent for its unique design, which features a snakeskin out sole that is encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Since the company was started in 2016, the trend-setting shoes have made their way into many celebrity hands. To learn more about Exotics by Cedrick, visit the site at www.exoticsbycedrick.com.

How Do Cosmetic Lasers Work?

Laser, as an acronym, is an abbreviation for “light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.” A laser is actually a single color of light (one wavelength), which is a high-energy light source that can be concisely directed to focus the light beam on a very small targeted area. In cosmetic laser procedures, two basic varieties of lasers are used—ablative and non-ablative.

The Two Basic Laser Types: Ablative, Non-Ablative and How They Work

In cosmetic laser procedures, the two basic varieties of lasers are used — ablative and non-ablative. While ablative lasers act to vaporize the upper layers of injured or deteriorated skin, non-ablative lasers penetrate deeper into the skin without displacing or causing damage to the upper skin layers. When patients undergo cosmetic laser procedures that use non-ablative laser techniques, there is no actual downtime for the patient due to this procedure.

Since lasers are monochromatic, any laser emits light of just one color, or wavelength. During cosmetic procedures, lasers operate through “selective photothermolysis.” In other words, the laser alters the light frequency (photo) to create heat (thermo) in the exact location of the area (skin or tissue) you plan to destroy (lysis). To accomplish this, the light beam wavelength must be synchronized with the target color, regardless of whether the target is brown spots on the skin or bright red broken capillaries.

The two main kinds of lasers can be subdivided into many other divisions of laser varieties, with hundreds of laser brands and types within these different divisions. Different laser wavelengths, or light colors, are used for treating different skin problems. If you are a patient who has several different skin issues to be treated, your surgeon will recommend different lasers to target the varied skin problems that you need treated.

Recommended Lasers for Various Cosmetic Applications

  • Wrinkles and Lines. – For treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, skin procedures to resurface and tighten the skin are used together, and both these treatments can be handled with use of the CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser or Erbium YAG, which are aggressive laser varieties. CO2 lasers are also frequently used to remove skin tags and warts a well as for making incisions in skin during surgeries that are laser-assisted. Pulsed dye lasers can also be helpful in some instances, as are non-laser treatment methods that are light-based, like IPL and LED photofacials. These non-laser treatments are less aggressive than procedures performed using CO2 lasers or Erbium YAG.
  • Skin Tightening. – The majority of cosmetic laser treatments include some degree of skin tightening, even if it is superficial, since they create some regulated injury to the skin, which promotes a rise in collagen production in the body. For greater tightening measures, CO2 lasers are most often used. Currently, more procedures of this type are being accomplished with light-based, non-laser treatments like Titan infrared instruments and systems that are based on Thermage radio frequencies.
  • Pigmented Lesions. – Examples of these lesions are age spots, sun spots, melasma and other types of hyperpigmentation. The lasers the most frequently used for procedures involving pigmented lesions are the pulsed dye, Nd:YAG and Fraxel (fractional lasers) as well as light-based, non-laser treatment methods such as use of IPL.
  • Precancerous Lesions. – Nearly all surgeons concur that cancerous lesions are best removed with a scalpel, in a regular medical surgical procedure. This will ensure clean borders and complete removal of precancerous tissues. This also provides a skin sample for pathologists to examine for further assurance of the nature of the lesion. However, lasers are now in frequent use for removing actinic keratoses, or precancerous growths, before they can become malignant, or squamous cell skin cancers. For this type of procedure, ablative lasers like the CO2 and Erbium:YAG are most often used.
  • Vascular Lesions. – These lesions include facial broken blood vessels, spider veins of the legs and ankles, hemangiomas and some birthmarks. IPL is most often used to treat these conditions since it is a minimally invasive treatment mode. In addition, the pulsed dye, Nd:YAG and diode lasers may be used.
  • Hair Removal. – The extent of the safety and success of hair removal by laser treatment depends on the pigment of the hair and skin of the patient. For individuals with darker skin tones, the Nd:YAG or diode lasers are usually the best option, while patients with lighter skin tones are best treated with use of IPL.
  • Acne Scars. – For deep scars caused by acne, the CO2 laser is the very best choice. Other good choices are the Erbium:YAG as well as the fractional laser and some non-ablative lasers, but these three laser types are usually only effective for treating less severe acne scars. LED treatments have also shown to be effective for treating scars resulting from acne.
  • Tattoo Removal. – Both the CO2 laser and the Nd:YAG are the most often used for removing tattoos. In some instances, tattoo removals can also be accomplished with IPL use.

Light-Based Treatment Technologies in Use Today

There are numerous varied types of light-based treatment technologies that are currently in use in the practice of modern cosmetic surgery. Although many of these different treatment modes are frequently referred to as “laser” procedural methods, these treatments are being performed with use of devices and instruments that are not true lasers. The treatment technologies used include LED treatments, IPL, Titan and other infrared methods that are energy-based as well as radio-frequency based modes like Thermage. Although these treatment technologies are very helpful and successful methods of approach for many different cosmetic surgeries, it should be stressed that they are not actually laser treatments.

Laser Surgery Procedures with Optimal Expertise

Dr. Joseph W. Rucker, Jr., completed his medical school training and degree at the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. After receiving his medical degree, he spent five additional years in general surgery followed by a three-year residency in plastic surgery as well as a fellowship in breast reconstruction.

Since 1984, Dr. Rucker has had a highly successful private practice in the Eau Claire region of west central Wisconsin. He has performed more than 10,000 cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures. Dr. Rucker is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

4 Popular Myths about Breast Augmentation and the Truth Behind Them

 

If you’re thinking of undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, there are so many things that you have to know about the process that will help you make an informed decision.

There are tons of myths and misconceptions about this surgical procedure. Some might be the very ones that are preventing you from taking the leap. The good news is that scientists have already debunked many of them. So if you choose a reputable surgeon, you can certainly feel more confident about the outcome.

What are the myths that you should know about, though? Here are four that can help you weigh your options better:

Myth #1: Saline Implants are Safer than Silicone Implants

Two of the most popular types of breast implants are made of saline and silicone. They’re filled with exactly what they’re named after, allowing them to offer different results.

Because they’re filled with a sterile saltwater solution, a lot of people believe that saline implants are way safer than silicone implants which are filled with silicone gel. As both can rupture and its content can leak inside the body, a lot of people are scared that a silicone implant’s content can be more detrimental to health.

The FDA, however, has cleared the safety of silicone implants. The use of a good quality silicone implant and its proper maintenance can also make it safer to use.

Myth #2: Breast Implants are Dangerous for Breastfeeding

A lot of women who consider getting breast implants are also around the age of starting their families. This is why one of the most popular concerns among them is the safety of having implants while breastfeeding. Some are scared that the silicone material can leak and mix into the breast milk, which might harm the infant.

While the thought is quite scary, research shows that there’s no evidence this can happen. The silicone material won’t easily get into the mammary glands or any other areas wherein it can mix into the breast milk. Its positioning and molecular size make such impossible.

However, breast implants can affect a woman’s breasts’ capability to produce and release milk. The position of the implant can apply pressure on the alveolar cellular wall, which can diminish milk production.

Myth #3: You can Choose Your New Cup Size

Another popular misconception about breast augmentation procedures is that you can choose your new cup size. This isn’t true. The size of the implants that you’ll receive will still depend on what your body can handle. Going from small to big in just a couple of hours can cause a drastic change that can have serious effects on your body, so it’s not recommended by specialists.

You can still opt to go as big as possible, but there’s still a limit to this. Experts take into account the size of your frame, your weight, current bra cup size before recommending the size of implants for you. They’ll make sure that the procedure will bring the most natural-looking results that won’t affect your comfort and your body’s performance. Bigger is not always better when it comes to breast augmentation.

Myth #4: Breast Implants Require Replacements Every 10 Years

Because breast implants are medical devices, experts require them to be replaced every once in a while. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you should wait ten years to do this, however. To avoid complications, you should get regular checkups so the condition of your implants will be monitored. It can also help determine when you should have your implants replaced.

As these points can prove, a lot of the things that might be scaring you from getting a breast augmentation procedure are purely misconceptions. With the right specialists, breast augmentation will be a safe and simple procedure.

5 Ways to Take Control of Your Health

It doesn’t matter if you’re old or young, male or female, are living with a medical condition or have a clean bill of health, there will be many ways you can improve your lifestyle.

A proactive mindset can help you to effectively care for your physical and mental health, which could add years onto your life. If you want to ensure you live to a grand old age, read the five ways to take control of your health.

  • Book an Appointment with Your Doctor

General health maintenance will allow you to care for your mind and body effectively. Book a monthly medical examination with your doctor, who can check your blood pressure, heart rate, and assess your risks for various diseases. It will also provide an opportunity for you to discuss your health goals with a doctor, such as losing weight, diabetes management, or lowering your blood pressure.

 

  • Seek Help

Sadly, many people might be living with a medical condition they do not want to confront head-on – or perhaps they do not have the mental health to see the issues clearly. However, doing so could be the difference between a swift recovery or severe or fatal repercussions. If you’re unaware of a health issue, such as an addiction or eating disorder, you can guarantee your body will be harder to heal, as well as your mental state.

You need to find the support you need to get on the path to recovery. For example, if you are living with a drug or alcohol addiction, check in to a reputable drug rehab center.

  • Get Enough Sleep

Sleep deprivation cannot only drain your energy levels, but it will also reduce your focus, creativity, and productivity. What’s more, a lack of sleep can lead to a low mood and long-term health issues, such as depression or obesity. Don’t allow your health to decline and ensure you enjoy enough sleep each night.

For example, adults between the ages of 18 to 64 will need between seven to nine hours of sleep per night. While those 65 or older will require seven to eight hours each night. To help you drift off, make sure your room is cool, quiet, and dark, and avoid caffeine several hours before your bedtime. You should also go to bed and wake up at the same time every day to develop an effective sleeping routine.

  • Schedule an Annual Eye Examination

Eye examinations cannot only detect visual impairments, but they can also spot early symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and hypertension. An annual checkup will also ensure you receive the right visual aids, such as glasses or contact lenses, which will match your prescription. This can prevent the development of eye strain and headaches.

  • Routinely Visit Your Dentist

Similar to your vision, a dental examination can detect a disease before other symptoms appear. For example, a dentist might spot the signs of various non-dental medical issues, such as diabetes, oral cancer, stress, HIV, osteoporosis, and poor nutrition. It doesn’t matter if your mouth appears clean, fresh and problem-free, you must routinely visit a dentist to review your oral health.

Sleep Deprivation and The Type of Mattress You Should Consider Buying

There is so much happening in the world right now and we often find ourselves unable to stay on track and focus on our work. Most people have adopted the art of multi-tasking and its not really a good thing.

Your cognitive function decreases when you are tired as a result of the neurons in the brain having trouble communicating well. This causes the brain to relapse temporary which essentially affects the personal visual perception and your memory.

This makes you more forgetful. You will also be easily distracted and eventually lose focus. This is what we all brain fog because it blocks you from thinking straight. This can be attributed by just a single night of bad sleep.

Sleep deprivation affects your brain and also put you are a risk of affecting your overall health. Lack of sufficient sleep can put you at a risk of a heart disease or an elevated heart attack. You could also be a victim of high blood pressure.

When your brain is always fatigued, it may not be able to repair itself in one night which leaves you prone to stroke. Lack of sleep also puts you at a risk of getting Type II diabetes. You will also have lower sex drive because you will be groggy with no energy to actually accomplish the task.

If you don’t sleep well, you also put yourself at a risk of depression. This happens if you tend to get too little or too much sleep. This exposes you to mental health issues. You will also be more prone to weight gain because your metabolism will be affected.

Your immune system will also be affected if you are not getting a good night’s sleep. You may also find yourself at a higher risk of catching a cold.

The Type of Mattress You Should Consider Buying

Mattress with Favorable Construction That Favors all Sleeping Preferences

Find a mattress that is constructed with two foam layers that supports any sleeping preferences of different people. Make sure the cover is a Tactel blend that is thin enough to allow the air to easily flow through the mattress and help with the temperature regulation.

It is a better material than cotton because it tends to dry a lot faster which also helps with the temperature regulation of the mattress. The construction of the mattress also has a comfort layer made of the proprietary foam 3 inches, and a poly foam that has a density of 2.9 lb.

The comfort layer is crucial ton the sleeping process because it offers pressure relief and also generates the overall feel of the mattress you are lying on. It offers a perfect bounce back because it responds fast to pressure. This makes sure you don’t feel stuck when sleeping.

The construction also includes the base which is right underneath the comfort layer. The base has 1.8 lbs density and a poly foam of 7 inches. It offers the foundation and support of the mattress which makes it have a structure with durability and shape.

 

A Firm Mattress That Offers Great Support

The first layer of the mattress should be very soft and should offer a fast response to pressure. This will allow you to easily move around the bed while lying down. You should begin to feel the firmness of the mattress when you push deeper into the mattress hence the support system of the mattress.

Despite your size or your sleeping position, you should be able to feel the mattress differently because it should have a switch between the firm and soft layers of the mattress. You can generally expect that whatever the firmness range of the mattress you experience, you will appreciate the support this mattress offers.

One with Great Edge Support

For those who share the bed, for instance, couples or children, you need to make sure you look at the edge support of the mattress. Compared to innerspring mattresses, foam mattress sometimes fail to live up to the perfect edge support.

Look for a mattress that will prove this to be different while lying down, where you will be able to change and shift positions without rolling out of the bed. Make sure it inclines your back perfectly which will allow you to sleep perfectly even you are right on the edge.

There are mattresses that are perfect for married couples and parents with kids. You can sleep comfortably without worrying about your kids falling off the bed when they are sleeping. With mattress, it will be difficult for you fall out of the bed even when you are sleeping close to the edge.

Look for a Mattress That Isolates Motion Perfectly

Again, married people or partners who sleep together need a mattress that effectively isolates the motion. The mattress should stay within even when you are rolling so much on the bed.

A Mattress with Impressive Sinkage

Sinkage of a mattress is ultimately decided by your own personal preference. There are those who would rather stay on top of the mattress than sink into it. However, make sure the mattress you want offers impressive sinkage capacity for people of all sizes and weight.

Final Verdict

Such mattress types are perfect for people who have sleeping partners and would rather have something that is constructed to accommodate an average person. They will also help solve sleep deprivation for those who have trouble sleeping in comfort.

We recommend the Tuft and Needle mattress at Lowes for those on a budget and wouldn’t want to compromise on quality of the mattress. It will also be incredible for those who are working with an industry or company that has plenty of experience in online mattress industry because they will truly appreciate the craft behind this mattress.

They will deliver this mattress for free and setup for you. They also offer a warranty of 10 years. The incredible bit is that you get to try out the mattress for 100 and you can return it if you don’t love it.

Morgan Taylor & Alice, A Royal Adventure In A Nail Color Wonderland

Morgan Taylor Royal Temptations

Morgan Taylor Royal Temptations

 

With the hot, humid summer penetrating the air, and the infamous royal wedding has come and gone, and beach trips are being made, there is no doubt about it that we all want to find that perfect summer nail color. Truth be told I myself have never been one for the summer pastel nail colors. That was until I saw the Morgan Taylor Royal Temptations line and their Take The Journey To Wonderland collection. Each line showcases colors with names that really bring them to life. Ever since I started painting my nails I found more of a fascination with the names rather than the color itself. However, with these two lines, both captured my attention.

 

Morgan Taylor Nail Polish

 

When I was in beauty school I was trained in OPI and became an OPI-oholic. I refused to use any other line because I grew to love the longevity of it as well as how well the polish went on when you applied it. They never got clumpy and the color was very pigmented. For years that’s all I used until I discovered Morgan Taylor. These colors, right from the start, captured my attention and when they went on they were nice and even. The colors are very pigmented and easier to apply than other nail polish.

Now back to these amazing colors in the lines. Between the Royal Temptations and Journey to Wonderland, you can accessorize your outfit perfectly or add a very authentic design. They easily allow you to become your own artist even if you choose not to add the specialty tops coats and so on. The Royal Temptations line is more on the solid color yet vivid shine. It came comes with 6 delicate colors to choose from as well as an “Over the Top Pop” specialty coat to add extra pizazz to your look. Perfect for that “Royal Wedding” you’ll be attending this summer. Or even just basking on that long-awaited summer vacation.

At this time, we can now take our Journey through the Looking Glass as we follow Alice to Wonderland. Another collection of 6 Platinum colors that have added specks that really bring you into your perfect fairy tale. Just like Alice, these colors are adventurous and exciting, living up the party without showing off to much. However, the colors bring out every personality of the characters in the story from the Mad Hatter to Alice herself. Remember “no one can be just like me anyway” (from “Just Like Fire” by P!nk)

The simplicity of the application comes from the specially designed brush. Instead of the traditional small, squared off applicator this applicator is actually spread out more almost in the shape of your actual nails. Due to the uniqueness of the design and the brush itself, you are able to get into every area of the nail, leaving no corner untouched. Also, the uniqueness of the brush and handle your daughter (no matter how old) could do your nails making it look as if you spent a fortune on a manicure at the salon.

In the market for a new color to try? Visit Morgan Taylor’s nail section of your local ULTA or online at their store and get Fashion Week approved nails for less. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram for up to date looks. Stay in the know while you are on the go.

What are the Causes and Symptoms of Facial Burning Sensation?

What could be more alarming than feeling like your face is burning? The images that run riot in your mind would make Chewbaka’s face look tame. You imagine that you are slowly turning amphibian or reptilian, or something that is yet to be discovered and defined.

That burning sensation on your face can fall on any extreme; from the mild to the ‘call-the-ambulance’ range. In order to find out why you have a burning sensation, you will need to run through the possibilities so as to get a correct diagnosis.

Possible causes are quite a number, so finding the right diagnosis could take quite a while. As questions like is burning sensation normal?become some sort of an obsession, you could:

  • Find some information about burning sensations.
  • Search for a specialist who can narrow things down for you.
  • Use the good old diagnostic computer system.

What are the possible causes for the burning sensation?

There are a few of them that could be checked and possibly ruled out. They include:

  • Low estrogen
  • Neuritis
  • Rosacea
  • Electrical hypersensitivity
  • Anxiety
  • Food allergies

Next, you want to have a list of the possible symptoms that the aforementioned causes would display, and note the ones that you have. The following are possible culprits:

  • Itchiness.
  • A regular sore throat.
  • Inability to relax.
  • Night terrors.
  • A chronic cough that is productive.
  • Changes in your bowel movement.
  • Poor concentration when your cycle is on.
  • Facial flushes.
  • Feeling a tad exhausted especially in the afternoons and evenings.
  • Food cravings.
  • Frequent bowel movement.

These hardly begin to scratch the surface. You may be wondering… what has the face got to do with all these? You would be surprised. Sometimes a burning face is caused by issues that have little to do with the skin.

What does that burning face sensation feel like?

  • There is a sudden sensation of burning on your face.
  • Your face and other parts of your body feel itchy.
  • There’s a feeling of numbness which does not last long, fortunately.
  • Your face feels warm.

Causes

As mentioned earlier, sometimes the causes have little to do with the skin. The causes might be internal. They may also be externally caused. Here are a few of the known causes:

  • Too Much Sun

Sunburn is an obvious suspect for burning face sensation. The sun may feel great on your skin, especially after a long spell of cold, but ultraviolet rays have never been known to be friendly on the skin. Do not overexpose your body to any source of heat.

  • Injury

Whether caused by a blow to the face or a slight breaking of the skin, trauma to the skin can cause that burning sensation.

  • Beauty Products

If you are in the habit of jumping from one product to the next, that could spell doom for your face. To avoid that burning feeling on your face, find a product that works for you and stick to that.

  • Acne

Acne actually feels like burning. Most sufferers tend to get acne in their adolescent years, but many women seem to have issues with the condition in their adulthood and during menopause too.

There are many more causes of the burning sensation that beg the question -is burning sensation normal?- However, the best way to deal with any issue that affects the face or skin in general is improving on your hygiene, and being careful with cosmetic products.
