"Open Minded Skeptics hit the stage at the Windsor Hotel as part of the Scottish leg of the tour. Thomas Koupa Couper himself, lead singer of the band described them as:
 
"4 Piece metal rap band, bring beefy riffs, crashing drums and Scottish twists, mix that up with a hate for corrupt politicians and you have O.M.S!! Bringing power back to the people!"
 
However the Skeptics are more than that. Thomas brings power through his vocals and a stage presence that has to be seen to be believed. The whole band as a collective have a huge sound and will defiantly be going places in 2017 and beyond. Having been able to acquire one of the dates on the tour for us at Over The Bridge we are very happy with. We believe these group of Skeptics have something and are happy to give them a stage to show it.

 
Heading to the Windsor to support them will be:
 
Breeding Indium
Viens Of Carbide
Let's Play God
Kyber
 
Door charge on the fantastic night is £5. This fantastic night of metal is one surely not to be missed for the area. Get along early to support all bands on the bill and show these bands a kirkcaldy metal night is the place to be."

Walk of the week

 

Blairadam Forest - Kelty

 
KY4 0JE, UK - Use map below to get directions from where you are...

 

"There are three different routes for walks, all well signposted along the way: the blue trail is the smallest and is only half a mile long; the red trail is two miles long; and the yellow trail is the longest at two and a half miles long. We have walked all of them and the dogs have thoroughly enjoyed each of them.
 
We most commonly use the red trail, as there is a river that runs alongside the path for the entire walk. There is also a 'pool', which is generally deep enough for the dogs to swim in. A really nice place, which can be busy at times. Dogs can be off lead for the entire walk and there are plenty of interesting bits for them to explore and have fun. There is a field about half way round the red walk, which is grassy and never has livestock in it so is ideal for throwing a ball for the dogs."

World of Supercars - Knockhill Racing Circuit

 
Track day of super cars at Knockhill in Fife

image credit

 

"The Autoglym World of Supercars Show and track day is expected to be the biggest and best track day ever seen at Knockhill! An anticipated 200+ Hypercars and Supercars will be on display and be driving on the famous British Touring Car Circuit at Knockhill. Never before will there have been a gathering of such performance exotica in Scotland! In 2016 we had a La Ferrari, Bugatti Veyron, McLaren P1 together with a full range of Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Porsches, Ferraris and McLarens – what more could any supercar fan want from a day!
 
What is the Autoglym World of Supercars Show?
 
The Autoglym World of Supercars Show is a car Trackday and show where we welcome over two hundred Sports, Super and Hypercars, to celebrate the most exotic machinery on the planet. The speed and sound of these cars will be seen and heard to the max as they roar around the circuit.
 
Is this event specifically for modern Supercars?
 
The era of the Supercar can date back to when the likes of the Jaguar E-Type first burst on to the unsuspecting public roads in the 1960’s. The Ferrari 308, Lamborghini Countach and Porsche 911 Turbo era then made them into poster cars, posters that adorned almost every teenager’s bedroom walls throughout Europe. An area for classic Supercars will complement the 21st Century line up of McLaren, Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini Supercars in the paddock and on track!
 
What will I see?
 
Off-track attractions will feature static displays of exotica from the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, Maserati, Bentley, Aston Martin, Audi R8 and numerous others from the world’s finest performance manufacturers. The latest 2017 Supercars will be on display from dealerships from all over Scotland, to allow them to showcase their newest models. The Hyper Cars and special exhibits will be undercover in the show area within the pit lane garages for fans to see up close!
 
On the track, car owners will display the performance characteristics of their cars to the full in Supercar Trackday sessions, driven hard as they should be away from the restrictions of the road.

What Necklace To Wear With What Neckline

As the title says, this article is going to talk about which types, or styles, of necklace to wear with which neckline.
 
We'll cover the different outfit necklines from v-neck to sweetheart and then share which style of necklace to wear with each.
 
We'll then finish off with a cheat sheet that you can quickly check the night before so you dazzle the next day no matter where you're going or who you're with.

 

"The easiest necklaces to wear with just about any neckline is a longer one. The length of the necklace clears any v, scoop, drape or boat neckline. Whether you decide to go longer or shorter, you don’t want your necklace bumping up against your neckline. So either select one that is about an ½ an inch to an inch above your neckline or one that drops under your neckline at least several inches.
 
Longer necklaces, much like v-neck tops, lengthen your neckline, which in general is more flattering. Chokers shorten your neckline, which sometimes can sometimes be a more challenging style to wear. If you are petite, pay attention to how long the long necklace goes. Right below the bustline is good – grazing your bellybutton is too long."

Choosing necklaces for necklines

1. V Neck: This is a matchy matchy area. Wear a necklace in a similar triangular V- shape that ends just above the neckline.

2. Turtle Neck: It looks best with longer chain style necklaces.

3. Scoop Necks: They look best with broader necklaces with layers and volume.

4. Crew Neck: Collar necklaces look very stylish.

5. Halter neck: A triangular neck piece with a pointy end.

6. Buttoned down shirt: Sleek and elegant strand necklaces in a V – shape.

7. Buttoned up shirt: Any style works. But personally I like to pair it with short round necklaces.

8. Strapless or off-shoulder: You have full creativity to go here. But the larger the necklace the better.

9. One shoulder: Its best not to pair it with any necklace at all. Rather go with big earrings.

10. Boat Neck: Go with longer thin necklaces. Or better pair with pendants that reach just above your waist.

11. Ballet neck: works best with necklaces that follow the same shape of the neckline.

12. Cowl neck: Nope no necklace.

13. Plunging neckline: Better not take the attention away from the exposed cleavage and bare skin. Opt for heavy earrings instead.

14. Sweetheart neck: A wide round necklace which covers the bare skin looks best.

15. Square neck: A short choker necklace looks best.

17. Round neck: That’s quite easy. The higher the neckline, the longer the necklace and vice versa.

 
 

Necklace Sizing:

 
Here is a little guide on necklace length if you are still in doubt over the necklace length. The higher the neckline the longer the necklace should be. And the lower the neckline, the shorter and rounder the necklace should be.

Necklaces according to your bust size:

They don’t just depend on necklines but on your bust also.
 
1. Smaller bust: Go for longer and chunkier necklaces.

2. Larger bust: A smaller necklace with 2-3 layers works best. Go for bib necklaces.

Necklines that should NOT be paired with any kind of necklace: Cowl neck, off shoulder, embellished neck and plunging necklines.
 
Broader and heavier necklaces work best with: sweetheart, strapless, square neck, round neck, scoop neck.
 
Narrower and V – shape necklaces: Halter neck, V neck, Buttoned up shirt
 
Longer chains: Turtle neck, boat neck"

Some more ideas:
 
 

"So how can you choose the best necklace for 7 top necklines? Below are some flattering options that run the gamut from faux to fine jewelry, at a wide range of price points.

 
 

Crewneck

 
Thin, short chain necklaces do not work well with crewnecks; they can get caught on the edge of the fabric and hide inside. Instead, go bold! A monochromatic crewneck dress will come to life when accented with a big, colorful piece.

 

V-Neck

 
Most V-necks look lovely with a 15” to 18” chain necklace, with or without a pendant; this flattering neckline is the perfect frame. For a “Boho chic” look – especially with deep “V” necklines – layer two or three thin gold, silver or beaded necklaces of different lengths and textures.

 

Bateau/Boat

 
My own preference with this sharp, straight-across neckline is no jewelry at all. Picture elegant Audrey Hepburn in her black bateau cocktail dress in “Sabrina.” But if you want to accent a boat neck top with a necklace, go long.
 
 

Turtleneck

 
As with boat necks, turtlenecks work best with necklaces of at least 18.” Consider beaded strands or a long cord with a pendant.

 

Draped/Cowl

 
A 3-D neckline is so voluminous that a necklace may simply get lost (or tangled) in the fabric. Hoop or chandelier earrings may best complement this style; however, if you’d like to wear a necklace, choose a short style that fits above the neckline.
 

Blouse/Collar

 
A collared blouse is one of the most polished, flattering necklines. It works well with short, delicate chain necklaces, long strands of beads or – in a nod to classic elegance –real or faux pearl chokers.

 

Plunging

 
Thanks to the Kardashians, J-Lo and “Real Housewives,” wide, plunging necklines cut way down to there are now ubiquitous – on TV, at least. However, most women may only occasionally sport this sexy style, perhaps for an evening event.
 
Pair it with a long, dangling lariat, drop or “Y” necklace (a choker with a single chain that drops into the d├ęcolletage) for a fresh, current look. Lariats – which close by looping through a ring, rather than with a visible clasp – can also be worn with designs that plunge in the back, with the drop or pendant falling down behind.
 
Whether your neckline is round, “V” or square, wide or deep, classic or daring, the most important thing is to take a chance and experiment. If you like what you see in the mirror – and it makes you happy – you simply can’t go wrong.
