How To Be Interesting Wife

images-5You’ve finally decided to let go off the tom-boyishness and are ready to explore the feminine side of you. Great, but a little word of caution lest you leave the job half-done—being a girly girl involves more than changing from pants to skirts, shirts to blouses, shoes to stilettos and ponytail to perfectly styled hairdo. It is like going in for a complete makeover yet keeping yourself genuine and authentic. So, are you prepared for the same? Remember, a girly girl embraces her femininity and works hard to maintain the same. So, if you thought that sweating out on the field was a tough job, remember, this isn’t a cake-walk either. You have got to put in a lot of effort to get those eyes rolling and tongues swaging. So, shed those inhibitions, lay off those bats and balls and prepare yourself for the big and welcoming change!

Get Your Curves Back! What’s up with you with the oodles of fat bulging out from here and there? Have you been loading up your belly lately? Get a closer look at yourself in the mirror and you would know that the excess mass is doing nothing but making you look like an ugly duckling! To be all girly, first get a grip of your waist and shun down on eating those fatty foods. Get to a nutritionist fast and make a diet chart for yourself. Binge on high-fibre, less fat and low cholesterol diet to get those curves back. Hit the gym twice a week and start off with yoga. Be sincere in your efforts to get back from the shapeless to the curvy-you!

Wardrobe Revamped! Agreed, baggy is in vogue but only those that make one look sexy and suave. Wearing clothes that seem tailor-made for someone twice as healthy as you will only get the fashion police on high alert! To bring out the girly side of you, you need to wear clothes that would assist you in purpose. Hit to the mall and get clothes that are well-fitted and versatile in nature. Replace those baggy jeans with ones that seem custom-made for you. Include a variety of clothes in your wardrobe, such as casual tees, flowy skirts, cute patterned shorts, silky blouses and so on. Try out clothes of different cuts and shapes and stay far, far away from boring colors. Oh, before we forget, your wardrobe lies incomplete unless you have perfect accessories and footwear to match your clothes!

Sinless Indulgences! Yes, it’s chocolate that we are hinting at, but not the usual indulgence of unwrapping a bar and splurging it down the food pipe! It is, in fact, the chocolate massage and manicure-pedicure sessions that we are aiming at. For if you are to be the girly girl, you should know that girls love detailing and attending to the smallest and the microscopic specifics of their body. Book a session or two at a salon near you and pamper yourself to their treatments. Rest assured, you’ll come out like a budding flower with freshness and beauty redefined, which sure can get your female buddies go green with envy!

Make-up Secrets! Take a look at the mirror—tons of foundation, cake-like compact, pitch-black kohl, dark lipstick and bloody (only literally) blush-on—were you dressing up for a Prom night or Halloween? Never mind! Agreed you have never ever applied kohl in your eyes, forget about doing make-up, but does that explain your frenzied look? Of course not! Remember, applying make-up is a perfect mix of staying natural yet enhancing your features. Swear by not to make yourself a Christmas tree next time you lay your hands on your vanity case. Just adhere to two basic principles—light dash of makeup for the daytime look and sparkling makeup for night parties. Have blind faith on your lip gloss, kohl, mascara and a dash of blush-on for occasions when you are clueless. One can never go wrong with them!

Styled Locks! Do you often move out of your home with an out-of-bed hairdo? If yes, then the off-the-cuff days are over, for if you really desire to get the eyes on you, you need to first get your hair in place. For the same, take a first-hand look at your hair. Do they seem to be wearied down and lack lustre? If yes, then book yourself a hair spa at the nearby salon. Once your hair have gained their original lustre and shine, give yourself a new look by sporting a new haircut. You can go with the trendy styles of the time or one that suits your face. Just make sure that the style that you go for accentuates your personality and make you look gorgeous and fashionable.

Get Grooming! Now that you have your curves back, some stylish clothes to put on, hair in place and make-up that makes you look charismatic and charming, is it all or are you missing something? No and yes; no because you are looking like a picture perfect pretty girly girl and yes because you still have the grooming part left. For despite looking like a girly girl, if you don’t flaunt an attitude and mannerism of one, you will never be able to get yourself in the category. Check for your mannerism—from the way you walk to the way to talk, everything counts. So, every time you are out there, walk with your head held high, talk in a polished tone, sit with your legs crossed, be organized and avoid clumsiness.

Tips for Dress Up For Your Husband

download-10Aiming to be the style specialist for your upcoming date? Well, then you need to up your sleeves and get the balls rolling, for being a trendsetter isn’t an easy ballgame. In fact, it calls for selecting your look with prudence and caution, lest you rub your partner on the wrong end or send wrong vibes that have him/her racking the nerves. Instead, you should be styled in a way that you have him/her complimenting and contemplating your look even days after the date. To get off to a great start, we are here to help you with some excellent ideas and some handy tips. Enlighten yourself and get your man/woman drooling at you!

Know The Occasion We give you two situations – You are dressed up like a Christmas tree and your date takes you for a coffee at the nearest café and you are in your casual tee and rugged pair of jeans and you end up going to a lavish eatery. Awkward and out of place are two feelings that would creep up your mind and make you restless until you return back home, feeling stupid about yourself. As for the date, you would remember nothing except the fact that people were glaring at your style statement and snickering about it. To dress up for a date, you need to first know where your partner is taking you to, whether it is a casual outing or a dinner date. Zero in on an attire accordingly.

Colors That Work For You If you thought that a bright red or a fluorescent green is what would draw the attention of your beloved, well, we guess you need a little counselling. For this would only draw the attention of the fashion police and not your date, who would surely feel uncomfortable being with you (even if he/she does not say it in so many words). It is true when they say, add colors to your life, but only those that make your life beautiful and attractive. If you are a man, go for neutral shades or shades of blue, black and white. For a woman, adding a bit of hue to your attire can be okay, but not too much. It could be suicidal. Remember, an extreme display of colors would not result in the desired effect. Instead, it could only turn off your date. So, choose wisely and pick those that brighten your personality!

Accessorizing Yourself Men or women, accessorizing is the call for the day! You have picked up a dress that suits the occasion, chosen your footwear accordingly, but what about the accessories? Accessories add that spark to your appearance and make you look lively and appealing, for if it weren’t for the accessories, you would look bland and vapid. For women, the options are aplenty, from neck pieces to earrings, rings, anklets and so on. Choose one that highlights your dress and makes you look appealing. But don’t go overboard. Men, too, have a lot of options today when it comes to accessories, whether you want to dress casually or formally. Belts, cufflinks, neck ties, collar pins, watches, wrist bands, and so on. Use your sense of discretion while picking an accessory.

Picking Shoes While dressing up for a date, selecting the shoe often gets overshadowed by the anxiety to pick up the right dress. Result, you are left with no option but to go with a contrasting pair of footwear. But do you know that putting the wrong foot forward can ravage your entire effort of looking charismatic for the date? Why take a risk when you have options to explore? While selecting your outfit, make sure that you pay equal amount of time deciding on the footwear that would complement the dress. If it is a casual outing, you can go for sandals, sneakers, loafers. If it is a formal date, men can stick to formal shoes or suede ones, and women can choose from wedges, peep toes, stilettos or bellies.

Comfort Zone Aiming to look like a diva or the heartthrob of the nation can be quite a fanciful dream. And, if by chance, you successfully bring to life your fancies, know that it would be quite difficult to carry off the same all through the date. Rest assured, nothing can be worse than tipping off from your heels or moving uncomfortably with those tight-fitted jeans while on a date. So, do not compromise your comfort for fashion as you may only end up looking like a stupid wannabe. Instead, trust your comfort clothes, while dressing up for a date. Only when you feel comfortable in the attire, will you exude brilliance, confidence and charm.

Cleanliness – A Must Be! There are no qualms about it. Last of all you need is a wrinkled blouse or shirt, dirty trousers and shoes that look as if they were never washed or polished! One look at you and it could as well be the last date with your beloved! Whether you have been in a rush or were informed about the date at the last-minute, nothing explains the rugged condition whatsoever. Make sure that the dress you choose is freshly laundered or at least washed and ironed, your shoes polished and clean, your accessories in perfect shape and you bathed and smelling fresh. Always remember that while on a date, strive to maintain a look that is fresh, clean and neat.

Some Additional Tips:

    • Make sure that the attire you choose is practical and comfortable, lest it gets uncomfortable for you to sit down or stand straight due to its shape and cut.
    • No matter how cool or sexy your favourite actor looked like in his/her latest release, it is unwise to follow the trend if you are not in your skin after wearing it.
    • For women, minimalistic or natural make-up is the way to go for a daytime affair. For the night, you can get a bit loud and use sharp tones but make sure you don’t go overboard.
    • For men, make sure you are clean shaved or have at least trimmed your facial hair so that you look neat and tidy.
    • You’ve hit the jackpot with your selection and are looking drop dead gorgeous/ handsome but the moment you open your mouth to say hi, your partner gets turned off immediately. Bad breath, didn’t care to think about it? Brush and floss before you go out for the date.

Tips for Express Love For Your Caouple

download-9Firstly, know that expressing love isn’t any rocket science. You may be baffled by the idea and have sleepless nights as to how to woo your girl, but know that showing your girl that you love her is as simple as loving her. And when you did not think twice while loving her, then why are you, now, breaking your nerves while thinking of letting her know the same? Agreed, men express their love differently, but know that this isn’t just like any other day when you say her ‘I Love You’. Expressing love means opening up your heart to a woman and letting her know how special, treasured and precious she is. Every time that she has made you go weak in the knees, all those feelings and moments that you have lived with and for her, need to be expressed out there. While there are many ways of letting a girl know what she means to you and where she stands in your life, you have to choose one that is the winning bid for your love! In the following lines, we have mentioned some ways that would assist you in your expression of love. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Show It For Her To Believe It! You love her, you care for her and you know that she is the one for you. But have you ever expressed the feelings to her? If the answer is no, then there is something that we’d like to ask, what are you waiting for, Christmas? With the world going the showbiz way, something as simple as emoting love today also demands you to be showy and swanky. The era today calls for expressing love in innovative fashion. And the options are aplenty. From candle-light dinners to weekend getaways to romantic long drives, you can choose any one. But don’t forget to carry along the standard stuffs, flowers, champagne and of course, the ring!

A Walk To Remember! If privacy and solitude is what you are looking for while expressing your heartfelt emotions, a good idea would be to take your girl for a walk. However, this isn’t any fitness walk or a casual stroll that you are taking her to. You are out there with a purpose, to blurt out everything that you have been storing in for the past few days. Steer your conversation in a way that it would help you come up with what you want to say to her. Taking her to a walk by the lakeside or to a well-manicured park would be a great idea. And just when you think that the two of you are all alone, past the eyesight of the others, whisper those magical words softly but clearly in her ears.

Party Time! How about a big bang party, some close pals, lots of food, exotic drinks and a solitaire for your beloved? Sounds great? If you and your girl are party animals and love to go spree while clubbing, there can be no better way to emote your love to her than throwing a big bang party. Since the party would be in her honor, have all her delicacies in place, drinks that she loves to splurge on and her close-knit chuddy-buddies. Make sure that she has no clue about the party and only comes to know of the same when she is right in the middle of the venue. Lights closed, spot-light and you standing there with a solitaire – no girl can getaway without saying a yes! Here’s toasting to the two of you!

Creativity Calling! Put on your creative hats and get the pen moving; nothing impresses a woman more than a self-written poem that her man writes to express his love to her. If writing a poem is not your cup of tea, you can even write some short messages to express your love to her. Penning down the details of your first meeting, how you felt about it, and how you realized that the cupid had struck can even be a good way to express your love. Whatever you write, just make sure that it is original and personalized and not an inspired piece of write-up!

Surprise, Surprise! How about planning sweet little surprise for your girl on one of your special days, right from the morning and ending it up with a revelation of your love? To do this, you can start off by delivering her favourite bunch of flowers and breakfast that she loves to hog on right in the morning. Next, you can send her an entire collection of spa products along with the dress, footwear and accessories that you want her to wear for the day. When she is ready, have a chauffeur-driven car right outside the door to take her to the place you want to meet her! Surprise her with some candies and chocolates of her favourite brand. And when she asks you what you have in your mind, just blurt it out with a ring. This sure would be the most special day of her life! Just make sure that you attach love notes with each of your surprises!
