Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. With only a month left in this lovely day, you must get the best gift for the one that means the most to you in this world.

By Catherine Nichols

Presents are the things that make everyone happy, no matter what the worth of the gift is! We would be discussing the best gift that you can present to the mistress and make her happy.
Women love jewellery, and the most beautiful gift that you can get for your one and only is a necklace. A woman always looks elegant when she wears a necklace on her neck. Well the best necklace that I have found out there is the one mentioned below:
Large Choice charm

This is the necklace that your mistress would love to have. I can say this thing for sure, as being a woman I know the choices that a woman prefers. The perfect word ‘YES’ written on this beautiful golden necklace adds the extra ‘umphh’ that it needed. The choice charm necklace shows your acceptance that you have given towards the love of your life and this would make her feel loved and adored. This necklace was worn by a model in the Vogue magazine, so that kind of shows the worth of this necklace. I myself want someone to present me with this gift, who won’t be glad to have such a beautiful necklace around their neck.

INTERVIEW with Karen J Gerrard the founder of SEAMS ! SEAMS. Treating hands and nails as lovingly as face skin. www.seamsbeauty.co.uk

Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Linkedin | Pinterest

SEAMS believes that hands and nails must be treated as lovingly as the skin on your face as they are a big indicator of age and are constantly subjected to physical and environmental aggressors.

Tell us a bit about SEAMS?

SEAMS Hand Cream was created for seamstresses to help mend and moisturise their sore pinpricked fingers, without leaving an oily residue on fabrics. it is full of natural ingredients including Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Rosehip Oil, Pro-Vitamin B5 and a Biomimicry Lipid Complex that absorbs instantly, penetrating the epidermal layer to help lock in moisture and leave hands feeling exceptionally soft, supple and smooth. SEAMS non-greasy formula makes it a household favourite, and a kit bag essential backstage with make-up artists in Film and TV at ITV, Netflix, CBS

How did you start it and when?

I had spent a decade working in the fashion industry, then designed a rain hat I wanted to learn how to create the hat so in April 2012 I signed up for a two week millinery course at the London College of Fashion. Anyone who works with their hands will know the pain of cuts, burns and dryness from the constant washing! I searched for a beauty cream that would moisturise and help heal our sore pinpricked hands that didn’t transfer onto fabrics, I couldn’t find one so created SEAMS. It was called SEAMS as I was sewing at the time of the idea. A year later SEAMS website was live and we launched backstage at London Fashion Week, instantly becoming a success.

How did you start working in the beauty industry?

I went into my local chemist asking how I could find a formulator to help me create a beauty cream. He set me off in the right direction and I was lucky enough to work with an amazing pharmacist creating the perfect hand cream. A year later SEAMS website went live, I feel blessed to have met many wonderful experts in the industry who I have learned from and have guided me. It’s been incredible learning a new business, I have always been passionate about skincare, and enjoy every minute working in such in the beauty industry.

Where do you see SEAMS in the next 5 years?

We are currently developing full line up of non-greasy skincare products that will target every part of our body from feet, elbows, knees to the face. We have just started exporting to the USA and plan to see the global growth of the brand, giving hardworking hands the SEAMS Touch around the world.

Who inspires you?

Lady Gaga inspires me and I take inspiration from Music, creativity and seeing the smallest acts of kindness.

Clashing Cultures Amongst Family Customs

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | YOUTUBE | INSTAGRAM

NEW YORK, NY –When a first generation Indian-American girl named Monica falls in love with Brandon, an American and a Christian, her mother believes that this will put an end to Bengali traditions for future generations. In Gita Audhya’s All Those Tears We Can’t See, published by Austin Macauley, we see how a clash in cultures greatly affects Monica and her happiness.

Although Monica loves her parents and respects their beliefs and customs wholeheartedly, there is a cultural gap that never seems to fill.

To understand her mother better, Monica takes a job opportunity in India. There, she falls in love with the country, its traditions and religion. However, tragedy befalls her.

What will happen now? Can she go back to America and share her newfound love with her mother and Brandon? Will she even get the chance?

“It is a story that puts life in India and the USA under a microscope so that we see clearly the differences between beliefs and way of life in each country and begin to understand the challenges some people face in assimilating into a new country while still retaining one’s culture and beliefs,” says Audhya.

A devastatingly realistic emotional rollercoaster that readers won’t want to get off, All Those Tears We Can’t See, will have an impact resonating with readers as each character handles their challenges in a unique way.

All Those Tears We Can’t See, published by Austin Macauley, was released on October 31, 2018. Price: $13.95, ISBN: 9781641821933. It is available in Amazon, Barnes & Noble as well as other bookstores around the country. Review copies are available upon request.

For more information, please visit: www.austinmacauley.com/us.

About Author: Gita has traveled three countries – England, Canada and America – to find happiness. After obtaining the P-form, Gita and her husband were allowed to enter UK.  Due to ignorance and lack of knowledge about other cultures, life was difficult. She knew through hard work and sacrifice, she would achieve her dream; higher education, wealth and better future for her family. As she learned and gained experience, Gita set out to write about it, fulfilling a lifelong dream to be a published author. She produced a novel about spirituality and real love titled In Pursuit of Love, Spirituality and Happiness in 2009 and is now thrilled to publish All Those Tears We Can’t See with Austin Macauley Publishers. Through many people’s love and support, she believes can achieve anything. Her varied interests include: travelling, science and art and reading any book she can get her hands on to satisfy her curiosity.
