Lyon County 4-H’ers had the opportunity to show off their clothing construction and clothing buymanship skills Saturday evening during the public fashion revue in the Anderson Building on the fairgrounds.

Judging for both classes was held earlier in the day, with the fashion revue being a celebration of the new outfits 4-H’ers picked out or created.

Icy Blonde Hair is Your New Ethereal Wedding Goal

Maybe it started with Game of Thrones and a certain blonde’s cult following, maybe not. All we know is, every colorist we’ve visited lately has divulged that everyone is clamoring for “ice blonde” in the salon chairs. “The shade is trending, but it's always been in style—it’s the new platinum blonde,” says Tessa Sprauer, a colorist at ARROJO Soho. Basically, it's a blonde so blonde it's bordering on silver. The names of the shades mean something different to everyone, so to avoid any…

Acne is the most uncomfortable, embarrassing and overall frustrating rite of passage that teens have to deal with. When you transition through college and into adulthood, it’s easy to expect that most of your adolescent afflictions will depart for good, but that isn’t always the case when it comes to this common skin condition. Finding yourself ridden with zits on the morning of your college graduation, or even of your first job interview, is horrifying to say the least.

I suffered…

Groom's Lost Luggage Results in Hilarious Wedding

A word of advice if you're planning a destination wedding: Pack your wedding dress and/or tuxedo in your carry-on.

"If you want to wind up in the same country as your wedding outfits, don't fly Delta Air Lines," the user wrote.

Why men date but never marry stunningly beautiful women

Why men date but never marry stunningly beautiful women

As a woman, it’s a ‘curse’ to be devastatingly beautiful. Well, it may seem a ‘blessing’ initially because you’ll hog men’s attention — but, obviously, for the wrong reasons. Most men see such women — especially if they lack charming personalities — as being only useful as ‘good time girls’. Not as wives. Yes, men ‘worship’ them. But never marry them. For instance, when such types crack boring jokes — those that you have to tickle yourself to giggle when told by…

Why men dread going for shopping with their women

First, let’s perish the thought that men ‘shop’ per se. Actually, men just ‘buy’. Shopping is a preserve of women, or so it seems. Look, ordinarily, if men must go shopping, they treat it as a mission — which they execute with surgical precision and decisiveness. When a man walks into a shopping centre, he knows exactly what he wants to buy; he goes for the targeted good (or service), grabs it, pays, and ‘flees’ the shop (as if it were a crime scene!). If anything, impulse buying is alien…

3 options to explore if you want a small ceremony

Nigerian couple

The bigger the ceremony, the better. The more people turn up, the better for the 'ratings' of the ceremony by family, friends and neighbours.

You know this by the joy and pride that lit up the face of Nigerian mums as they brag to their friends about how the whole street was blocked when their first daughter wed two weeks ago.

But, thankfully, variety is the spice of life and not everyone is cool with this.
