Oh what is happening to hemlines?

Skirt length theory cannot be taken too seriously, but apparently if hemlines are going down the market is also going down.

Look at Demi Moore with a very long dress, I hope these long skirts will not last too long,  first I don’t look good in a long skirt, but actually I don’t want to look old fashion. What to do what to do. I definitely will wear pants.

If you are like me, you could always wear a maxi skirt, I look good in a maxi skirt, it makes me look taller.

Well you can wear a long Indian skirt maxi style.

I suppose I could wear this midi skirt,  but I really have to wear the boots with it. From Zara $49.00 CAD.

Zara is playing safe with its fall season 2018 and is still selling mini skirts $45.00 CAD.

Lets cross our fingers and hope that these long skirts will be of short time.

I have always been fascinated by Lady Gaga and her extravagant costumes and shows. Well I was totally surprised by her home decor, there certainly is more to Lady Gaga than meets the eye, would you believe she is a traditional.  The proof of the pudding is in her home environment. Could you guess who lives in this home.

Allergy friendly home can be a stylish home

As I was walking from my office to Hotel Le Germain on Mansfield street in Montreal to meet with Colin and Justin, I kept saying to myself, ”I hope I will not be sneezing 13 times as I sometimes do in winter, this could be very embarrassing even though Colin and Justin were about to share with me some of their allergy proof tips for your home Christmas decorations, I don’t think a sneezing introduction would be de mise .”

Colin and Justin in montreal good

Colin and Justin’s hallmark as Interior Designers is to help their clients make choices for a beautiful, happy and healthy home, in their perpetual quest for this special task, they have realized that many people have indoor allergies, and they found out from Claritin that nearly two thirds of Canadians with or living with someone with indoor allergies have tried to protect their home against indoor allergy triggers.

So here are Colin and Justin’s tips for Christmas decorations.

Dust your ornaments: Christmas ornaments have been sitting in a box

all year, and may also be coated in dust or mold. If possible, unwrap them

outside to avoid spreading dust inside your home. Wipe them off with a soft

cloth before hanging. At the end of the season, wrap your ornaments in new

paper, rather than re-using old, dusty paper.

Clean your wreaths: Artificial wreaths can be vacuumed or dusted with a soft cloth. Use a vacuum with a Hepa filter, like the Dyson Animal, to remove dust, and keep it in the cleaner, rather than in the air.

Colin also told me he vacuumed their friends dog with this Hepa filter and the dog absolutely loves it, and it gets rid of all the extra floating hair.

Avoid scented candles: Scented candles can cause stuffy noses and

irritated lungs. If you crave a little atmosphere with your holiday meals, try

unscented beeswax  and soy wax candles.

You can find these beeswax and Soy wax candles made in Scotland at Homesense, Winners & Marshalls, by the way Colin and Justin are from beautiful Scotland.

You can also  visit Christmas fairs and buy from small independent makers who can tell you all about manufacture and components.

Christmas is Not To Be Sniffed At…Quote C&J

Shake it or fake it – seems to be the way for allergy sufferers to enjoy a

Christmas tree this year. Follow Colin and Justin’s  tips for reducing indoor allergens and

enjoy an allergy-friendly holiday season, where the only tears in your eyes will be from the lovely family times ahead!

Tips for Real Christmas Trees

Real trees can a haven for mold, dust, and pollen – add in allergies to tree

sap – and to some particular genus of tree – and you might be itching to find

an alternative. If you long for a real tree then:

Choose an allergy-friendly tree: avoid pine trees as the pollen can be a

major allergy trigger for some people. Fir, spruce, or cypress may be a better bet, with the Leyland Cypress – a sterile hybrid tree, the best choice as it does not produce pollen.

Give it a shake: some tree farms have a mechanical tree-shaker that will

serve to remove dead needles as well as some of the dust and mold.

Wash your tree: before you bring the tree into the house, spray it off

with water and allow to dry overnight in the garage. This will remove

some of the loose mold and pollen that is on the tree. Using a vegetable

wash like Nature Clean veggie soak http://www.naturecleanliving.com/

fruit_veggie_wash_concentrate will remove more mold and pollen than water

alone, and will also help to remove any pesticides that have been sprayed on

the tree – another major irritant.

Pop it outside: If you long for a real Christmas tree, then why not take it

outside and dress a tree in front of your main window or out in the porch for

visitors to see as they arrive. That way you can enjoy it from afar without

problems.

Choose an eco-friendly alternative tree: some are modern, some natural

but all are ideal alternatives to those who want to make a holiday statement

without creating health issues. There is a card board trees like: http://boutique.cascades.com/ca/en/catalog/christmas-trees/

For a modern look you can use a cake holder and fill it up with Christmas balls and Christmas decorations and top it up with a lovely candle.

Colin and Justin in Montreal 074

For a smaller tree, you can get one of these washed newspaper trees, they have an old feeling about them but are quite modern (I like to think of myself this way). The small driftwood tree would look terrific in your country home.

The good news is that an allergy-friendly home can still be a stylish home,  Create a new tradition, a tradition of your own that will make your family and friends happy and healthy.
