Create Your Own Rules of Party Dressing and Socializing

Forget how everyone tells you how a party should be. Why not revamp your own look and party organizing skills and shine this season? Instead of feeling uncomfortable in a really tight party dress and feeling out of place at a party that you don’t enjoy going to, come up with a new plan. It’s about time you take matters into your own hands and plan a fun get together, show up in an outfit you love, and socialize with company you look forward to being around.

By creating your own rules at the party, everything should come together nicely. Plus, why not check out these free shipping New York and Company codes and buy yourself a dress that you’ll feel comfortable in? The evening will be a lot more enjoyable if you put your own party into effect!

Update Your Makeup – Now that you have a brand new dress that’s both comfy and chic, why don’t you update your makeup? A shimmery shadow will add the right amount of glamour and a matching bold shade of lipstick will look ravishing paired with your dress. Plus – who can forget about this season’s smokey eye?! It’s a great night time look that’s bold, daring and elegant. You’ll definitely shine at the party and have fun simultaneously since you’ll be with company you like to be around.

Ditch the Pumps and Go for Flats – If you’re a mom on-the-go you probably don’t wear pumps that often or maybe you don’t wear pumps at all because they’re uncomfortable! Whatever the case may be, don’t feel awkward in pumps that make your feet hurt on what’s supposed to be a fun evening. Instead opt for fun and funky flats with a jewel on the end of them or come in a flashy color like silver or a royal purple. They’ll keep you comfortable and will look beautiful too.

Don’t be Afraid of Sparkles and Glitter – It’s just a rumor that glitter and sparkles are just for your kids because believe it or not glitter is hip and hot for mothers too! If you don’t want glitter all over your face that’s understandable, but there are subtle ways to glow and be the star of the show. Apply sparkles and glitter on your nails for a glam look and use makeup products like bareMinerals that will add the perfect amount of sparkle and glow to a dazzling appearance.

The holiday party will be one that you won’t forget because you created your own party rules!

Perfume: Understand It Before Buying It

Perfume plays a vital role in the life of any human being. A good perfume not only enhances one’s dignity, but also unleashes one’s self-confidence.

What you should remember though, is that not all perfumes are created equal.  They are as varied as fish in the sea. The thing is, one can easily be under the mistaken impression that picking out perfume is no rocket science.  And with the advent of online shopping, you can simply visit website suggestions and pick out any perfume without prior information or experience when it comes to choosing perfume.

With the plethora of options available to consumers, it is extremely important that they arm themselves with a working knowledge and awareness of what perfumes are all about.  Before making an actual purchase, you should understand the notes of perfume, and know the right brand of fragrance which suits your skin.

Understanding Perfume Notes

Perfume is divided into notes. These three notes are known as the top, middle and base note.

The top note refers to the immediate fragrance which is generally smelled by the sprayer and disappears quickly. Perfumes which have very strong top notes last for only a couple of hours.   Middle notes last longer than the top note. Last is the base note which lasts the longest, but it takes some time for it to be obvious.

Now, if you’re the type who isn’t too keen on experimentation, you can always stick to those tried and tested brands.  Personally, I love Hugo boss perfume and have been loyal to the brand for the past three years. If you choose the right brand which suits your skin, you can then make it your signature scent. You can never go wrong with mainstream picks.

Benefits of trying Recommended Perfume

Irrespective of the lavishness connected with any brand, it is always wise to try out the perfume on your body. Each one of us has a different skin structure. A smell which smells lovely on you may not necessarily suit your friend.  Apply some on your hand, wait 10 to 15 minutes and then take a whiff of it. This will give you the real smell. One more thing, if the perfume irritates your skin, say no to that brand immediately. Search for a safer alternative.

Beware of fakes

Do know that there are many fake perfumes out in the market. Steer clear of tempting online offers which give you cheaper alternatives to the original.  Many customers fall for the offer, and regret it later on. The original is still the best.

So the next time you buy a bottle of perfume, remember to take time to understand the science of scents.  After all, your dignity, confidence, and money are at stake here.

 

Dressing For Work While Working at Home

Are you self-employed and working from home? Maybe you’re a SAHM or a WAHM? If so, you’re among a growing population; more and more companies are allowing and even encouraging telecommuting as work option.  But with this option comes an unexpected challenge—what is the appropriate work at home wardrobe?

It’s easy to fall into the trap of throwing on sweats or workout clothes in the morning and staying in them all day long.  After all, these clothes are really comfortable.  Some people even stay in their pajamas all day when they work from home. It’s tempting to be comfortable sitting by your aquarium in the living room with nice aquarium lighting, but unfortunately sweats or pajamas are not the ideal work at home wardrobe.

The way you look directly affects the way you feel and act. If you dress like you are taking the day off, you are subconsciously telling yourself that’s where you’d rather be rather than working. It probably won’t be blatant, but it may come across in your work and in your voice on the phone.

You don’t have to go to the other extreme of dressing in a suit or a skirt just to sit in your home office, but somewhere in the middle of these two is a good compromise. Business casual is a great way to give your body and mind the signal that you are ready to work—no matter what your location.

Business casual presents its own challenges as there is no clear definition of what it means.  In some offices it means literally anything goes. Others have guidelines for example they may have ruled out certain items like capris or flip flops noting them to be not enough “business” and all “casual”.

A good idea is to create a few guidelines for yourself that will keep you in “business mode”.  For example, you might still feel professional in a pair of jeans, but not the paint-stained or ripped ones you wear on the weekends.

Ultimately, the key to your work at home wardrobe is to actually pay attention to it and not let it be an afterthought.

The Lady Who Shops Like a Man

Make no mistake about it, I’m all woman, from head to toenail.  Although a slight spike in androgen levels has made me a bit hairier in some parts, I’m pretty much your average Jane.  But unlike most women who spend hours scouring mall shops just to look for the perfect dress, I usually go for the first thing I find in the mall- a man trait, I know!  I find that I easily get tired searching high and low for the perfect dress, that I often just settle for the first “wearable” thing I see.

When it comes to picking out items to give as gifts, though, I take a little more time to choose the perfect present.  Naturally, I’d want the person receiving the gift to love and cherish whatever it is I decide to give him or her.  If you happen to find somebody with an item in each hand, talking to herself inside a shop, that’s me, debating as to which is the better gift to give.

Imagine my delight when I discovered Lasoo.com.au- a website that opens my eyes to various possibilities for presents without making me break up a sweat in hopping from one mall store to another.   It’s a site which searches current catalogues, as it highlights sales and special offers from retailers.  Lasoo makes it easy to look for advertised products, so you’re sure you’ll never miss a sale.  All you have left to do is to step into the store and buy your item-  or you can always buy it online.  That eliminates the need for me to go through a chemmart pharmacy catalogue to look for medication to ease my stress!

Mr. Significant Other’s birthday is coming up, so I wasted no time in sifting through Lasoo, and found a power drill to give him as a present.  On the website, I was able to compare prices with other similar products, so I guess I did get a good deal.   I just hope he likes it.
