Here is a great guide on how you can preserve your bouquet

Fresh flowers are often at the centre of special occasions. A wedding is one of them, and instead of throwing a special and meaningful bouquet in the bin, why not preserve it?

Preserving a bouquet is a great way to create a lasting memento, but how do you do it? In this post, we’ll share the different ways you can preserve flowers yourself.

Drying your flowers

For you to be able to preserve your bouquet, the flowers need to be dried. There are several ways that you can do this:

Air drying

Air drying is easy and doesn’t require much effort. You can air-dry your bouquet by trimming any excess leaves or foliage on the bottom of the stems. Using a piece of string or similar, tie around the bottom of the bouquet leaving some extra for hanging.

Hang the bouquet upside down so it hangs freely ensuring it is out of reach if you have young children or pets in the house. Bouquets that have flowers and foliage with longer stems and robust flowers tend to dry better. Small petaled flowers and those that contain a lot of pollen, aren’t great for drying as the little petals and pollen will typically fall out.

Drying flowers with a microwave

There are a couple of benefits to drying your flowers using a microwave. They dry out much quicker and typically retain more of their original depth of colour. If you have an exceptionally large bouquet, drying via this method may not work as it won’t fit properly. This technique is best reserved for small posies.

You’ll need a microwave-safe plate and paper towel. Place a sheet of paper towel on the plate and then the bouquet on top of that. Microwave for 1 minute and continue to microwave at 30-second intervals until they are dried. Once they have dried, let them sit for 30 minutes before touching them.

Make sure you remove any ribbon, string, or anything else on your bouquet that isn’t organic before microwaving them. Remember less is more when doing it this way as you can always microwave for longer, you cannot un-microwave your flowers if you put them on for too long.

Silica Sand

Silica sand is another effective way to dry your flowers. You’ll need an airtight container big enough to house your bouquet and enough silica sand to cover the bouquet in the container. Place around 30mm of silica sand into the bottom of the container to prop the bouquet up, stem end first. Trim off any wilting, dying or excess flowers and foliage first.

Cover the bouquet with the sand ensuring you do this slowly to avoid damaging any petals in the process. Once you have covered the bouquet with silica sand, place on the lid. After a week or two, your bouquet should be beautifully preserved. Remove it from the container, ensuring you dust off any remaining silica sand with a soft brush.

Silica removes remaining moisture in the flowers and stems and can increase the rate the flowers dry.

Preserve your bouquet in resin

Resin is a product that has taken the DIY and craft world by storm in recent years, and it’s a great way to maintain the original appearance of your bouquet. You’ll need a silicone mould, resin and hardener.

Arrange your flowers as you please in the mould, measure up your resin and hardener before mixing the two together. Once you have mixed both the resin and hardener, you can then pour it over your flowers. Allow it to cure before attempting to remove it from the mould.

Press the flowers

Pressing your bouquet is a beautiful way to display your arrangement. This is easy to do, and you can either press the entire bouquet or individual flowers. Place the flowers on wax paper ensuring they are positioned where you want them to be.

Place another piece of wax paper on top of the flowers and then place them in the middle of a heavy book such as a large textbook or telephone book. Put additional weight on top of the book such as weights or more books to keep it compressed. Leave for a week at the minimum. You can then display your pressed flowers in a frame or however else you like.

Dip them in wax

Dipping your flowers in wax will preserve them but not forever, so if you just want them to last longer than a week, this is the perfect solution. You’ll need a saucepan and some paraffin wax.

Dip the flowers individually into the wax once it’s melted and slightly cooled, remove and allow to dry. These will last for around 6 months, and this process maintains the natural colour of your flowers.

Chat to your florist!

If you know you want to preserve your fresh bouquet, make sure you have a chat with your florist about which flower and greenery choices are best. This will ensure you maintain a full bouquet that remains as intact as possible. Some delicate flower types aren’t suitable for preserving and you may not achieve the result you had hoped for.

We hope this post has given you an idea of how to preserve your bouquet yourself, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to our friendly team here at Mrs Gibbons Flowers. We specialise in Brisbane Wedding Florist and event flowers brisbne and gold coast and would love to help if we can.

A Great checklist to consider before booking your headshot photographer

We all know that first impressions count, and that a picture is worth a thousand words. So organising professional headshot photographs for your company’s employees, or having your own personal headshot taken, will have an impact on the image of yourself and/or your business.

Whether you are updating your website, organising business cards, or adding profile pictures to LinkedIn, before booking the session with your photographer, it is important to know the message you are trying to portray to your customers.

By being congruent with your brand image, it will make your headshot preparation easier. Some words which you may consider incorporating into your image would be: trustworthy, professional, genuine, upbeat, conservative, approachable, powerful, relatable, personable, focused and determined.

Your company’s brand is not just about the logo, it is about the people who support the company and how they portray the business. You could ask a colleague to help, by giving an honest opinion of you, to ensure it aligns with the message you are trying to portray. You should also be able to refer to the company’s mission statement and values to put together the message you’d like to portray through your headshot images.

Be rest assured, at Headshots Express, we will make sure your image is aligned with your character and your company, and we can consult with you prior to your booking for your peace of mind.

Few weeks out from your photoshoot:

Once you decide to book in your headshot photography session, you can prepare and plan for the big day. There are a few tips and hints to confirm and organise to ensure you and your team have success on the day. Contact your Gold Coast Headshot Photographer today to find out the best way to get your headshots done!

Finding out things like :

1- Where the headshot/ content is going to being posted:

Are you looking to update your linked in profile? Or are you adding an ‘about me’ section to your company’s website? Knowing where your image is going to be displayed will help the team style and run your session. Sometimes it is important to see part of the uniform, other times it is not relevant. Having an idea about where the images are going to be placed will give you a better feel of the style and colour choices for uniforms etc.

2- Formatting:

Are you needing your or images to be cropped horizontally? Or do they need to have a vertical crop? Also will the orientation need to be landscape or portrait? Will you need more than one final image? Figuring this out prior to your booking will allow the correct preparation. You may need to consult with your IT or website and marketing team to get the correct information. Your

photographer should be able to give you technical advice, however if there are specific dimensions and requirements, it is best to go into your session prepared.

3- Setting:

Do you want an outdoors photoshoot? Will the weather allow it this season? Would you be comfortable with a ‘wet weather’ option like backdrop indoors at your office, or at the photography studio? Or are you able to re-book the shoot when the weather is better? (keep in mind the photographer’s specific cancellation policy). If you are unsure, make sure you reach out to the photographer to get their advice.

Week of the photoshoot:

As the photoshoot is approaching, here are some ways to ensure you can put your best ‘face’ forward and achieve the best image with your photographer.

1-Get lots of sleep and stay hydrated! This will bring out the best in your skin! It is recommended to have 7- 8 hours of sleep each night, and 2 litres of water per day. Making a conscious effort to ensure you are looking after yourself in the lead up to your photoshoot will make a difference to the radiance of your skin.

2-Consider getting your hair and make-up professionally done. Having a professional appointment is always a treat! This will not only add an additional confidence boost, it will give you a brilliant glow for your photoshoot. If you are not going to be booking a professional appointment, please consider blocking out some additional time in your diary to allow for you to do make up and hair yourself.

3- Choose your outfit.

Make sure your clothing is clean, wrinkle-free, professional, and reflects your personality. You and the company may have specific attire guidelines, therefore, double check on their guidelines, or send out to the team in advance so they can be prepared.

4- Posing and Practice

While it sounds hilarious to ‘practice smiling in the mirror’, you will be surprised how much difference it makes by trying out which poses you like better. Don’t be freaked out, because the photographer will pose you and remind you to smile- but being prepared to show your ‘good side’ will make it more comfortable for you on the day, and quicker for the photographer to get the best shot!

All in all- have fun! Spending a short period in front of the camera will prove to be a well worth investment in yourself and the image of the company. Feel free to give us a call at Headshots Express for any questions or queries, and if you would like more information on booking you and your company’s headshot photoshoot!

How can organisations give a great boost to the concept of JavaScript protection and security?


JavaScript is considered to be one of the most popular programming languages which has been used by developers across the globe for the concept of mobile application development but from the point of view of the security this is the fourth on the list of most vulnerable languages in the world.

The most common way of initiating this particular concept is the finding of unprotected elements of the form-based system in the whole process so that everything can be carried out very easily.
    Server side Java script injection: this is considered to be the considerably new type of vulnerability which will often get ignored by the developers and further been clear about the execution and uploading of the malicious code with the binary files is important so that people can deal with the things successfully.
  • Client side issues: whenever the developers will be introducing the outside application programming interface on the client side it will make the application much more vulnerable to the outside a text. In this particular case poor web development practises are the most common factor of bling.

  • Interrupting the entire system with the help of HTTPS and SSL systems is a very good idea so that there is no chance of any kind of problem and even if the hackers get access to data it will be perfectly encrypted as well as unusable at the same time. So, setting out the cookies do the secure limit of usage of application is a very good idea so that everything will be able to deal with the encrypted website pages only.
  • Focusing on the best possible application programming interface security is a very good idea so that there is no chance of any kind of problem and everybody will be able to deal with things very successfully. With the help of this particular respect the access will be perfectly restricted to particular IP ranges which will further make sure that client side JavaScript applications will be dealt with very successfully without any kind of problem.
  • It is also very much important for the concern developers to be clear About the security analysers in the industry so that examination of the website and application from the inside will be carried out very successfully. Further, depending about the utilisation of right kind of tools like ZAP is very much important so that vulnerabilities can be dealt with very easily and every organisation will be able to enjoy higher level of customisation depending upon the needs and requirements to have access to easy to use intuitive interface. Apart from this depending upon systems like GRABBER is a very good idea so that analysing of the things can be carried out very successfully and the best part is that it can even be done on the small applications without any kind of doubt. It is also very much important for the organisation to be clear about the concept of WAPITI systems so that file disclosure, week configurations and the XSS attacks can be dealt with very easily and everybody will be able to have access to the advanced level tools which can be perfectly executed through of the command line.

5 Reasons Japanese Cotton Towels Make For Great Christmas Gifts

It can be challenging to find excellent gifts to give your loved ones on Christmas. There are so many gift options you can choose from, and you have to consider which items will suit their preferences and needs.

If you’re still searching for a unique and valuable present, try to consider Japanese cotton towels. They’re simple but useful items your family and friends may appreciate. Here are some reasons why they can make for excellent Christmas presents:

  • They’re Made With High-Quality Materials

Towels are essential items in a household. They serve various purposes, like drying your face and body after a shower. They can also be used as gym companions to wipe sweat.

Although towels are durable, they still need to be replaced after a few years due to wear and tear. Some people may overlook this and choose to use the towels they have at home even if they’re already worn out and old. So, if you wish to impress your loved ones on Christmas, it may be an excellent surprise to give them Japanese cotton towels.

Such towels are made with high-quality materials and can last for years. Such materials are also absorbent and soft to the touch. So, if you give one as a gift, you can guarantee that the receiver can use it for a long time.

Cotton Towels Make For Great Christmas Gifts

  • They’re Hypoallergenic

One common concern some people have with everyday items is their potential allergy-producing content. In some cases, simple things, like dust or pollen, can trigger extreme reactions, like rashes, asthma, or skin irritation. If a person with severe allergies uses products with allergens, they may feel discomfort or experience health problems. So, it’s always a must to check whether the gift you want to give to another person will fit their preferences and needs.

If you plan on giving a present to a person with some allergies, it may be a better option to choose an item that’ll be safe for them to use. For instance, hypoallergenic cotton towels don’t generate a static charge, which usually affects how much dust and microparticles cling to a piece of fabric. Therefore, their chances of triggering an allergic reaction are low. This vital feature of cotton towels makes them the perfect home items for anyone who’s sensitive to microparticles.

  • Cotton Towels Are Soft

Bath towels are essential hygiene products. After all, they’re the most efficient items you can use to dry your body after stepping out of the shower.

If you want to give gifts to your loved ones that won’t sit on a shelf or cabinet, it’d be a great idea to get them stuff they can use. However, you can’t just hastily pick any item you see in the store. You should also inspect its quality and function.

Japanese cotton towels are an excellent Christmas gift idea since their texture is soft and comfortable to the touch. In addition, their materials won’t scratch the skin and cause irritation or extreme dryness. Furthermore, their softness won’t be affected even when they’re thrown in the washing machine over and over.

  • They Can Show Your Sincerity

Not all bath towels are created equal. Some are made with comfort and function in mind, while others have subpar quality. If you want to impress during a special occasion, you can invest in good quality products to give to your family and friends.

Japanese cotton towels are commonly available from specific shops only. So, going out of your way to purchase them may help show your sincerity to people who’ll receive such gifts. Furthermore, their benefits and impressive features will be appreciated by those who use them.

  • They’re A Great Investment

Although they may only seem like simple gifts, good-quality Japanese towels can be an excellent investment for anyone. Since they’re made with high-quality materials and last for a long time, a person can use them over and over without any problem. Furthermore, they can simply use them for their daily routine to improve their overall hygiene and wellbeing.

Since they’re also hypoallergenic, they’re a great alternative for people with allergies. They’re also versatile since they’re soft enough to be used for the face and body.

Final Thoughts 

The spirit of gift-giving is common during special occasions, like Christmas. However, it’s undeniable that some people find it challenging to find the perfect presents to give their loved ones.

If you’re still searching for useful and new items to give to your friends and family, try to consider Japanese cotton towels. Although they may appear like simple presents, such items have various features your receivers will appreciate. For instance, they’re hypoallergenic and long-lasting.

So, the next time you go Christmas shopping, try to include such towels on your list.

If it’s hot outside, keep your curtains and blinds closed to keep the warmth from entering your home.

Filter Changes Once per year

This is one of the most common myths and is likely to have arisen from keen salespeople telling you how great their systems are and how little looking after they need.

The simple truth is that the filter captures dust and other particles. On a standard system it will need change 3-4 times a year. If you don’t change it the dust builds up, blocking the filter and cause the air conditioner to strain. This shortens its life and increases the risk of it breaking down.

Dirty filters are believed to influence the capacity of how excellent your AC can be.

5 Great Jelly Mask Benefits 400x300 1 - What Are Jelly Masks Good For? 5 Great Jelly Mask Benefits

What Are Jelly Masks Good For? 5 Great Jelly Mask Benefits

Is your skin looking tired, dull, or dingy? Or have you noticed some new imperfections, like oversized pores or blemishes? Not to worry, a jelly mask might be the solution!

This hot new beauty trend inspired by Korean skincare is taking the market by storm, promising all sorts of big benefits. And, if you haven’t tried them yet, you might be missing out big time.

Not sure if jelly masks might help with your skincare woes? No worries. This is your article.

Keep reading to learn about five big benefits of using these innovative new products, plus help finding your perfect product.

A Jelly Mask for Every Skin Type

Unlike harsh peels, intense facials, and intensive treatments, jelly masks are primarily used to hydrate, soothe, and plump up tired complexions. So, many of them are made with mild ingredients, perfect for sensitive and easy-to-irritate skin. This makes them an ideal part of any beauty regimen, regardless of skin type.

If you’re hoping to treat super dry, chapped, or even irritated skin, try storing your jelly face mask in the fridge. The icy blast you feel while spreading it on will help calm even the most troubled complexion.

Need extra penetrating power? Opt for an overnight jelly mask facial treatment for deeper healing and hydration. These specialized sleeping formulas have a thick enough texture to stay in place all night long.

  • Instantly Hydrate

One of the most obvious benefits of using jelly masks is the instant boost in hydration that you’ll see and feel.

Want to serve your skin a tall, cool glass of water? Be sure that Glycerin is one of your mask’s top ingredients. This beloved humectant, or moisturizer, will help your skin’s outer layer look dewy and fresh.

Other ingredients like hyaluronic acid can help to lock moisture in, creating a powerful barrier between your skin and the outside world.

  • Calm and Soothe Irritated Skin

Whether you’re naturally prone to sensitive skin or the change of seasons has you down, a jelly mask might be your best solution. In addition to their cooling and hydrating properties, most of these products are packed with calming ingredients.

Botanicals like aloe vera and calendula can help naturally restore balance to a troubled complexion. And, for added healing, you can opt for a calamine or rose jelly mask, ideal for neutralizing redness and irritation.

Is your skin stressed out? Nourishing ingredients like watermelon extract, cucumber, and chamomile offer calming effects and reduce inflammation—a perfect option for your post-wax beauty regime.

  • Restore a Youthful Texture

Are your face and neck starting to show signs of aging? Whether it’s crepe paper skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, or even the start of sags and bags, a jelly mask can help you lift and plump up.

For a collagen boost, shop for masks with Vitamin C made from citrus extracts and other natural antioxidants like ginger and turmeric. These ingredients can also help to increase cellular production, fight free radicals, and leave your face looking perfectly plump and filled out.

Jelly face masks charged with superfoods can also help to brighten dull and lackluster skin for a smoother, more radiant complexion.

  • Banish Impurities

If you’re prone to acne or breakouts, don’t despair. There’s even a jelly mask for your skin type!

Natural ingredients like green tea, white willow bark, tea tree oil, and honey can all fight the bacteria that lead to acne – and they won’t dry you out or further clog your pores.

And, believe it or not, added oil could help balance your skin’s natural oil production if you’re prone to breakouts. Options like hemp seed, pomegranate seed, and grape seed can all add moisture without leading to blemishes.

A peel-off option like this Jelly Facial Mask can also help to lift away your skin’s impurities when you remove it, leaving behind clear, bright skin free from blockages and blemishes.

  • Soften and Exfoliate

If your skin seems dull, rough, or just plain old tired, you might need to shed a layer or two. Thankfully, jelly masks make for optimal exfoliators, smoothing your skin’s surface and revealing a perfectly soft finish.

Start by looking for gentle exfoliating ingredients like lactic and glycolic acids and resurfacing AHAs to help lift away dead skin cells, dirt, and debris. Unlike harsh peels, these gentle options are safe for regular use and won’t lead to further irritation. You’ll also want to opt for a product that contains scrubbing natural ingredients like bamboo for double the pore-clearing effects.

Other natural exfoliators like citrus fruit extracts and apricot kernel extracts can help to balance your skin’s natural oil levels, lessening future chances for blemishes and breakouts. Just be sure that you’re scrubbing gently so you don’t accidentally add to the irritation.

Up the Effects

No matter which type of jelly face mask suits you best, there are a few tricks to follow if you want to see the full effects.

For starters, you should always apply your products to a clean, dry face. And, for the most powerful hydration, use your jelly mask at the end of the day, rather than the beginning. This will help to lock moisture in while you sleep!

Lastly, it is absolutely essential to use SPF protection during the day. This will protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays and help the effects of your jelly mask remain visible for days to come.

Fresh Faced and Fabulous

Now that you know about a few of the awesome benefits of using a jelly mask, you’re probably excited to give it a try. That’s awesome! You’ll be on your way to fresher, healthier-looking skin before you know it.
