5 ways to spot a Fake Designer Prom Dress Seller.

Discover the 5 ways you can tell when a seller is trying to sell you a fake designer prom dress.

Don't be duped by a Fake Designer prom dress seller. It's been happening a lot and it even made it to the news earlier this year. The news channels issued a warning for teenagers seeking their perfect prom dress.

Sadly, people have seen the opportunity to ripping teens off by selling fake designer prom dresses. There are so many of these sites floating on the web. The clever thing about these types of sites is that everything is made to look authentic. Right down from the photos to the descriptions, the consumer is led to believe they are buying the real deal at a decent price.

It targets those looking for a good deal and a beautiful designer dress. However many students have sadly fallen down this trap and as soon as the dress arrives its plain to see it’s a counterfeit. As the government works on shutting these websites down, it’s important you get clued up. When searching for prom dresses online, there are certain signs you can look for to ensure you don’t get a fake. So don’t be fooled! Just because the price tag looks enticing, if it’s an unknown source you are purchasing from you need to do checks before parting with your money.

It’s a relief to know however, there are still plenty of reputable prom dress online stores out there. For example, you can pick up one of a kind Sherri Hill prom dresses at Prom Dress Shop! This retailer is a verified supplier of designer dresses that has an official C.O.M.O.D.O authentic and secure stamp to prove it. So whenever you do find a dress you love, check the site thoroughly to see it has reliable credentials.

It can be hard to tell real from fake on a computer screen, so we have collected the top 5 tips on how to differentiate the designer from the bogus. 

   Check them out: 
  •  Price tag -If the price is unbelievably good for a designer prom dress, you know it’s a fake. Normally things that are too good to be true are not true. So if there are crazy 50 % discounts being thrown left right and center, this should raise a red flag in your mind. Always be aware that the designer ultimately makes up the prom dress price. Any reputable retailer therefore is required to sell the dress at the recommended retail price.
  •   Do not rely on photos - Even copyrighted photos can be easily grabbed from official websites and made to look authentic on a fake website. So don’t be fooled. As you know, looks can be deceiving! If you want to buy from an authentic online store or don’t want the hassle of going in shops, you can get home delivery or pick up instore with the Prom Dress Shop. 
  •  Make sure the site is credible - As we mentioned before, there should be a seal of approval from an official body that gives you confidence you are not being scammed. Having an active seal of approval from Paypal or an active SSL certificate is always a good sign.
  •  Is the contact information from the US? - If the contact details are international, you need to exercise caution immediately. If you want reassurance on where you are buying from is legitimate, you simply need to go to the official designer’s website. Then look for the ‘where to buy’ section and see if the site is listed.
  • How they ship - If it’s a fake Chinese site, they will often send you the dress as a ‘gift’. This cuts out shipping costs and avoids detection at customs. It’s a tell-tale sign that where you are buying from is trying to cheat the system and cheat you.

Now that you are clued up on what to look for to buy authentic designer prom dresses, we wish you the best of luck in your search! Always bear these points in mind and you will find the prom dress of your dreams from a reliable source.

3 tips to get your partner to help with chores. (The no nag approach)

Most people don't like to ask others for help around the house. Especially because they want to come across needy or naggy. The truth is though that anyone you live with should always help you out with chores, whether you own the place or they do. It is a combined effort to keep things from becoming a disaster. We don't want to offend or annoy, but we deserve and need the help. There is a right way and wrong way to do this. 

It's settled, getting housework done needs to be a team effort if you aren't living alone.  More help means more work can be efficiently done with less stress for you, and more time to spend on more enjoyable things, like quality time spent with your partner or family. 

   These 3 tips provide ideas to get the help you need with the chores.

Make life easier and more fun, with cool gadgets.

Everyone likes a cool new toy to try out and housework is no exception! Get your partner a bit more excited about doing the chores with some of the new, innovative, time-saving gadgets available on the market today. Gadgets that will inspire awe while doing the housework include roboticvacuum cleaners, a fridge with an inbuilt tablet or computer to help you order groceries, and even an automatic lawn mowing machine! Some of the gadgets available today are truly astounding and amazingly high tech.

But even if you’re looking for something that’s less flashy but impresses on a practical level, there are an excellent range of versatile and powerful vacuum cleaners that can be adapted to various jobs around the house, such as sweeping, dusting and upholstery cleaning, as well as vacuuming. Other simple, but awesome cleaning tools are mops, dusters and cleaning cloths that are made from electrostatic microfiber. This material is easy to use, quick to dry and saves on cleaning products, while the electrostatic aspect helps to ‘magnetise‘ dust, dirt and hairs to the cloth, meaning you can clean more in less time!

Talk to them. Work out a plan.

Of course the best way to get your partner to give you more help with the chores and a good place to start is by talking with them about the needs and expectations you both have. Take some time in a quiet space where you will have a bit of time for yourselves to discuss without interruptions. Think beforehand about what you’d like to say, in a way that is not accusatory or harsh towards the other person. Think of some reasons for the things you’re asking for, for example, a more even share of the housework if you both work full time, or if you are starting some part time work, how that might influence how much house work you are personally able to do and how they might help out.

Take time to listen to your partner’s requests and opinions too, as well as making your feelings known. Maybe they have fair reasons for helping out less than you would like, for example, busy work schedules or not knowing what you needed help with. Oftentimes we can feel it would just be easier to take care of all the work ourselves than to try to explain what needs to be done to someone else. But taking the time to open up communication channels and being understanding is a great way to a happier partnership and a cleaner house.

Draw up a rota.

What the heck is a rota? 

 A good way to ensure there’s a balance of household chores between family members and to make sure everything gets done, isto draw up a rota, or schedule. It is useful to collect a list of all the chores that need to be done around the house within a regular week, and then divide that list of chores between members of the household who are able to help out, such as your partner, as well as older children and teenagers. A lot of times the bulk of household chores falls onto one person because of their failure to delegate tasks. A well constructed rota makes it clear what needs to be done, by whom and by what time, to ensure household chores are completed efficiently and effectively.

If your children or partner need some encouragement with following the rota, it’s a good idea to incorporate rewards for tasks done, such as free time or a weekend treat for your partner, to pocket money or special outings for kids. Positive motivation has a great affect on getting those less pleasant household jobs done. Working together with your partner or family on keeping the house neat and tidy is a great way to foster a sense of community and working together which builds a stronger partnership and family.
