What Might You Wear To the Casino?

What Might You Wear To the Casino?

Posted on 06 May 2014 at 1:28pm

Despite the valiant attempts of the metrosexual to level this particular playing field, few would dispute that women still have many more fashion options than men when it comes to a night out. Of course this means choosing the correct outfit can be more challenging, although many women regard it as part of the fun of the whole thing. If the night is to be spent at a casino then the clothes you wear will probably be different from the ones you’d pick to hit the night clubs, and should be chosen with both the casino code of dress and the aim of the evening in mind.

The Perfect Way To Dress Your Figure

The Perfect Way To Dress Your Figure

Posted on 20 Dec 2013 at 1:45pm

Looking good is our business as ladies, this is the more reason why we should ensure that we have to dress according to our body types.

I have watched a lot of ladies dress in great attires that should have looked good on them but they ended up looking horrible or at worst, suffer wardrobe malfunction.  I have some rules you should learn to adhere to, before you can follow a fashion trend.

Do You Have A Pear Body Shape?

You may be lacking a fuller chest and wishes to minimize the lower part of your body.  What you should do is to add volume to the upper part of your body. You should pay detailed attention to the chest and waist so that your attire can create the perfect curves. You can achieve this with skirts as this can help slim down the hips. Do not make patterns at the bottom of your clothing.

You Got An Apple Body Shape

Ladies with apple body shape lacks a well defined waist. Ladies with this figure should wear dainty shoes or heels that would elongate their legs.  I will recommend that you do not make use of attires that have only one colour and  stay away from the halter necks clothing. The use of panel of colour can help in the creation of an ever-desired slimmer frame illusion.

Ladies With Hourglass

The hips and chest are equal in ladies with hourglass. I will recommend that such ladies make use of semi-fitted blouses, waist belts to help widen their waist. Ladies with the hourglass figure can lose their shapes completely if they put too much details or patterns. An over-sized, boxy clothing and turtle necks clothing should be totally avoided by ladies with this figure.

Dressing good can be done with a careful research on what makes you look great in different attires. Sometimes, we end up in embarrassing situations because the clothing we thought could have given us the perfect shape ends up disappointing us.

You should avoid copying people whose shapes are different from us when going for clothing. Only make use of the clothing that will keep you sexy and prettier and those that will blend your figure as a lady.

How To Maintain Your Skin During The Festive Period

How To Maintain Your Skin During The Festive Period

Posted on 11 Dec 2013 at 1:17pm


The festive period is drawing near and none of us will want to be caught with a dry skin. This is why we need to pay adequate attention to our skin. A lot of us will face the daily battle of a flaky and dry skin if we do not take out time to maintain it before the harass weather meets us. I know we all have our own special method of trying to look fresh and good. While a lot of us take a lot of drinking water to reduce dehydration, the rest of us depend on skin supplements or creams to look radiant.

Everyone of us knows the skincare basic rules, which is to make use of a good moisturizer in the day and night, eat a balance diet, stay hydrated, sleep well, stay away from smoking and avoid the ultraviolet ray. This is what we should follow religiously. However, with these basic set of rules, you can quickly stay away from dry skins especially during the cold season.

Practice safe Makeup rules.

Sleeping with our makeup can be a fashion disaster; it will end up clogging our pores and cause us to have outbreaks. When we sleep with our makeup, we are not giving our skin the opportunity to replenish itself with moisture overnight and this is very important this period.

Seek Advice for Your Foundation

You may know the type of foundation that suits your skin, but if you do not, there is no harm looking for advice. Foundations may last up to three months so you cannot afford to buy any that would not suit you perfectly.  If your skin changes with the season, you should look for something that would be more moisturizing during this harass and cold weather…

Don’t Forget Exfoliation and Face Masks

You should make use of exfoliation and face masks. You should try and avoid over exfoliating and making use of clay masks that are harsh during this period. These things often dry your skin faster than you can imagine, and at worse leave you with spots. I recommend you to make use of the natural homemade masks.

Make Use Of  Good Sunglasses

One of the easiest ways to stay away from wrinkles is the use of sunglasses. The benefit of sunglass is immense in this period because it can help prevent the UV rays without you making use of eye creams that are heavy on the skin.

Stay Hydrated

Water is great this season, try as much as possible to take warmer water often, reduce the intake of surgery fluids and opt for herbal tea. This is going to make you look better and prettier throughout this festive period. Do not forget that taking your bath more can be an added advantage to your skin. You can settle for warm water if you cannot take a cold bath because of the weather

How To Overcome Wardrobe Malfunction

How To Overcome Wardrobe Malfunction

Posted on 30 Nov 2013 at 10:44am


We have seen it all in wardrobe malfunction from Toni Braxon to Kate Middleton, it is either we are seeing overexposed cleavage, not wearing underwear ,a torn dress and sometimes, it boils down to how we get dressed.

I have developed strategies to save me from blushes, from carrying safety pins around to an emergency cardigan. This is because you may never know when wardrobe malfunction may knock at your door. You should learn to take precautions when going out because you can’t predict and prevent every situation but some wardrobe problems can easily be prevented.

Safety pins

As little as safety pins are, they are magical and can help you keep a button on an attire, replace your bra hook, prevent your shirt from flying, tighten shoulder straps, mend a failing hem and hold your skirt around the waist. The use of safety pin has become what can help you avoid embarrassing moments with your clothes. However, if you notice your clothes are not in good position, it is best you take care of them before leaving the house.


Your mirror cannot lie to you. My mirror is hung where there is good lighting. Before I can leave my house, I make sure that I verify that my clothes have no obvious tears or holes and also that my pantyhose are not tucked in my underwear. With my mirror, I am able to step out of the house without fear. This is because it is placed where enough light can reveal to me anything that is out of place. (more…)

Tattoos are magnificent pieces of art to ornate human beings, the most beautiful creation of Mother Nature. But there are lots of people who are highly interested in tattoos but don’t go for it as whenever they hear the word “tattoo”, they visualize needles, infections and similar sort of discouraging things.

If you are also among those who find it scary, you are not alone. Several people oppress their craving for tattoos for the same reasons. But nowadays there is a very nice solution to this problem, airbrush temporary tattoos.

These tattoos are absolutely identical to real tattoos but they don’t make you go through the immense pain. Also they are not risky at all, when it comes to infection issues. The same tattoos have been used in Hollywood for more than one and a half decades, and now they are available to you. These tattoos are not decals which may be seen in the candy shops or comics stores and last for just a few hours. The airbrush temporary tattoos look absolutely like real tattoos.

Actually, these tattoos are created on the body with the help of an airbrush. Stencils and color blending also play very significant role in making of these tattoos.

If a company doesn’t provide a warranty for its products it means that the company itself doesn’t trust its quality. In such a situation, should you rely on such products? Moreover, airbrushes are used for lots of other purposes also. You must make sure that the one you are investing in is fit for tattooing. (more…)

New Craze...Textured/Velvet Nails: Like it ?

New Craze…Textured/Velvet Nails: Like it ?

Posted on 04 Feb 2013 at 5:03pm


Just when I’m getting my head around the leather  polish craze a new one pops up! However I’m not the type to jump on a trend just for the sake of it and truth be told…it’s highly unlikely i’ll be trying velvet/textured nails. Though it’s said don’t knock it till you’ve tried it so I’ve been roaming many a blog/website to check out the new textured nail.

The textured nail is basically as it sounds, it uses a nail polish and ‘fluff’ to give a textured finish. The new look seems to be a hit among the beauty blogs which claim the manicure will last up to three days, even stays  intact when it becomes wet and is easily removed with standard nail polish remover. So if you’re looking for something a little current and unique….check out the video clip below by MUA  (Make Up Academy) which talks you through applying a textured manicure.

What Does Laser Bikini Hair Removal Feel Like?

What Does Laser Bikini Hair Removal Feel Like?

Posted on 01 Feb 2013 at 12:26pm

Hair removal sucks, no two-ways about it. Razors nick the sensitive bits, hair creams burn and smoulder, waxing is as much fun as a medieval Spanish Tickler torture session- and all of it is a temporary solution.

Laser hair removal is as close to permanent hair-be-gone as it gets, and yet for the majority, it is still largely unexplored territory. And maybe that’s because nobody can really explain what it feels like to laser your vagina.

Obviously, pain perception is hugely personal and perceived in different ways by everyone. BUT. Most patients under the care of a man with a laser beam i.e. a qualified laser hair removal technician report that the sensation is not dissimilar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The words stinging and burning often crop up, too- probably because that is essentially what the process is.

It’s an uncomfortable feeling. But it’s the only long-term process for removing hair- even if it does normally take four to six sessions. Discomfort can be reduced by using a numbing cream or popping painkillers before your appointment- just like any seasoned waxer would do. You won’t be subject for more than half an hour, and a good technician knows how to gague your pain threshold.

The process isn’t unlike getting a Brazilian at the beauty salon- your technician will leave you to change into paper panties and lay down on a raised bed. On their return, the technician will squeeze a jelly-like goo onto your soon-to-be-lasered spots, designed to protect your skin. Often you’ll be asked to wear protective sunglasses as the laser ‘wand’ is worked over the area. This is the bit where the ‘rubber band snapping’ comes in. Within the half hour you’ll be ready to clean off, get dressed, and carry on with your day.

Laser hair removal works by using a high level of heat to damage the hair follicles. Newer technology couples this with a follow-up cooling mechanism to reduce burning and discomfort, so risks are minimal. Some hypo- or hyper-pigmentation might happen (lightening or darkening of the skin), and with all procedures infection is always the teenie-tiniest bit possible- but at the end of the day you’re working with a qualified professional who will probably expose you to less risk than you’d manage locked in a shower cubicle with a rusty razor alone.

REAL Reasons Why Men Cheat On Beautiful Women…

REAL Reasons Why Men Cheat On Beautiful Women…

Posted on 20 Jan 2013 at 2:34pm

Trying to understand men when it comes to cheating is like trying to solve a Chinese puzzle when you cannot read Chinese.

It is always difficult to understand why a man will cheat, especially on a very beautiful woman he has. But it happens all the time.

After speaking to several of my male friends one this topic, I have decided to share some of the reasons they gave as to why most men cheat on their beautiful partners.

If you think you are beautiful and that means your man will be faithful and glued to you alone, then you are up for the big shock. Being exceptionally beautiful does not guarantee faithfulness in the world of men.

This is why so many beautiful women such as Halle Berry have been cheated on and are so insecure in life. These women know that, being physically beautiful will attract the men but then it takes more than that to keep them for yourself only.

If a man is cheating on his beautiful woman, then it is one or more of these;

She Knows Nothing More Than Looking Beautiful

It is true that men love to be with beautiful women, especially those who know how to project glamour and prettiness all the time. However, men quickly get bored with looks and begin to look beyond the physical appearance.

Faithfulness hardly comes from physical attraction, emotional connection is needed to seal a deal on faithfulness.

When a woman is only good to be showcased around in beauty, men begin to look out for the important things that make up a loving relationship. For instance, a man wants to be taken care of and if a beautiful woman won’t bend over to get that done, he will surely look around for where he can find that. (more…)
