“What are the benefits of the 10-step Korean skincare regime for brides?”

treatment

The 10-step Korean skincare regime sounds more onerous than it is and is actually the basis of a great skincare routine. Following it everyday will ensure that you have great skin, that is thoroughly cleansed, hydrated and treated, protecting it from ageing and environmental aggression. I always recommend this multi-step approach to skincare in the six months before a bride’s wedding day. I also believe it’s a great idea to book a course of facials to enhance the benefits so that you have glowing, radiant and rejuvenated skin.

Average Wedding Costs £27k – 4 Ways to Keep the Cost Down

wedding on stairs

It’s estimated that the average wedding now costs nearly £27,000. And while it’s thought that the cost is likely to be closer to £16,842 as brides and grooms are shunning hiring a professional for all of the traditional wedding elements, it’s still a rather hefty price to pay to marry the love of your life. 

With 35% stating that they wished they had budgeted more effectively for their wedding day, another four in ten regret how much they had spent – instead wishing they had put the money towards a house deposit or into a retirement fund.

Virtual Reality Wedding Video. I wonder what people see with those four words?

Virtual Reality Wedding Video

Some of us may remember tomorrow's world and a huge contraction sitting on your head with Wizards and R2-D2s  running around in clunky graphics.

VR has come a long way  since then, pardon if I get a bit geeky for a minute.

I have been working with Google the last 4 years doing a lot of pioneering work in 360 media. The Google cardboard project has made things much easier - now most people have smartphones and the film footage that I shoot and edit can be seen in 360º on a Smartphone and the same device with a simple Google Cardboard headset can you show the third dimension which is depth.

VR with what you have in your pocket and a £10 piece of cardboard.
