image (2)

Numerous people today are using Internet dating websites trying to find a potential life partner. Consequently, dating has become easier than it used to be. Whether you are new to the dating game or a veteran at dating, the below 5 tips can give you some ideas of how to prepare for your date.

Being Prepared Mentally and Physically – Prepare yourself mentally before your date. Always have in the back of your mind what type of person you are excited about meeting. Keep in mind that even though you are ready to meet the potential Mr. or Miss Right, things may not work out the way you plan. Be prepared physically for your date as well. It is great to meet your date for the first time and have them notice how healthy you are. Try getting on a regular exercise routine by going for walks and doing things that make you look healthier. This will not directly help you find the perfect date, but it will do wonders for boosting your confidence while on the date.

Wear New Clothes – Buying new clothes and shoes to wear on your date will boost your confidence. Maybe you want to try a new hairstyle or have a relaxing beauty treatment before you go. The more confident you feel, the more comfortable you will be on your date, and the better you will interact with them.

Setting Goals for Dating – Are you planning or hoping for marriage in a few years? If so, be honest about that with your date. If you are only looking for fun and a short-term relationship, you should be honest about that as well. Ask yourself some questions about what you want before you go out with your date, because your date may start asking you questions, and you want to be ready with your answers.

Relax and Do Not Reveal Too Much – Relax and enjoy your date completely. Dating is not always going to end up in marriage, but it is a great way to socialize and meet new people. Dating is a great learning experience that allows you to see what you really are looking for. On your search for new love, you may make a couple of new friends as well. While you are on your date, do not reveal everything about who you are. Try to make your date last longer, and reveal information about yourself slowly. If you keep some information to yourself, your date will be curiously interested in knowing more about you. This will prompt them to meet you again and again. The more time you and your date have with each other, the better your relationship can become.

Always Be Ready to Accept Rejection – Always be prepared for a negative outcome on a date. If your date rejects you, do not get upset and yell or be angry at them. Think about it as being positive. If your date has drawbacks about you, think about what you can do to fix those things. Or, realize that maybe this is not the right person for you to begin with and move on. Never stop dating because of one bad incident. Try to remain calm, and try again until you find the right person.

Dating can be nerve-wracking, interesting and exciting all at the same time. Try following some of the tips above to make your dating experience easier. And finally, the most important tip don’t forget to use deodorant!

Summer Colors: Coral and Navy

I never thought that these 2 colors (coral and navy) go well together.

Summer is here in our part of the world and wearing sleeveless tank tops and shorts are greatly advisable. It's much more comfy if your top will be of cotton material as it can absorb your sweat and will be cool in your body. Avoid silk materials if possible esp. if you will be under the sun for it will make you sweat so much.

Would love to wear this look soon, i just need to find a nice top like this when I go shopping maybe this weekend.

Choosing Nail Polish To Match Your Mood

swirly purple konad nail art

It is the right season when you can see trendy females with fashion at their toes and style at their fingertips – it is the season for pedicures and manicures. That is when most women show interest in buying a few new bottles of nail polish in shades that would say a lot about their personalities and mood. It does not really matter if you are a salon regular, a do-it-yourselfer, or somewhere in the middle, there is a diverse range of new tricks, colours and trends to entice you.

Picking the Right Shade

Nail polish has always been a popular way to change your look or simply enhance your outfit. However, you need to take some care when selecting a shade because it can reveal a lot about your personality and mood. For instance, if you meet a woman with nail art over their manicure, you should quickly know you are meeting a risk taker and a fun personality. Similarly, nail art with strong, bright colours points to a free spirit who does not mind experimenting a bit with her look.

It is worth mentioning that in today's world when nails have become the most important accessory, many women tend to choose a shade regardless of mood; instead, they pick a shade considering the colour of their outfit, which is why nude shades are quite common – you can read more about nude shades HERE.

Due to the demands of different shades, popular brands and manufacturers are now offering interesting nail polish deals. However, you should bear in mind that the colour you choose would express your feelings and let others know about your mood, or the way you feel on a particular day. Here is a bit more about the colours you should change with a change in mood.

• In case you are feeling a bit sad, the best colour to express your mood would be dark blue. You may also opt for grey to show you are not in the mood.

• If something has made you angry and you think you will stay in that mood for some time, try black or aubergine to express your feelings.

• On days when you feel extremely happy, you can always opt for brighter shades. The best choice in this case would be to polish with turquoise or pink – some may also like to choose red to show they are happy, but you should avoid it, as red is associated with love. However, if you are feeling happy because you are in love, do not stop yourself from trying red nail polish – solid white shade is also a good way of showing you are in love.

• On days when you do not understand anything and are in a state of confusion, the best shade would be green or mustard. However, you should change the shades if you are more anxious than confused – the right shade in this case would be beige or sheer white.

In Style: Lace Skirt

Loving this look!

The lovely lace skirt made it dainty and feminine while the orange top (love the color!!) made it a little bolder and eye-catching. The turquoise necklace made it even more interesting and I just love the arm candies and the oversized watch. I am trying to figure out if this look will fit me, might as well try one day.

Fashionable Office Wear

I have always envy those working in the office for they can wear various corporate attire. Working in an office need not to be so strict in just wearing black and white for you can also bring splash of colors to grab attention, express your boldness and be more fashionable. Of course, wearing unique attire in an office has some limits and boundaries too. You don't expect someone so superior wearing large floral dresses on business meeting.

Those working in HR department or those interviewing and checking employees' backgrounds via www.easybackgrounds.com and other means can be exciting and challenging as well. Here are some fashionable office attire that you can wear.

Love all these!

Trend: Floral Crowns

Oh this headpiece greatly reminds me of my niece who is in Australia. I have seen her wearing lush yellow floral crown during one of their summer activities. She also loves trying out various trends that will come her way and frankly she can pull it off like a model.

I reckon these floral crowns are perfect to wear during summer in the beach or perhaps during a photoshoot or maybe during a wedding or something. What do you think? You'll look like a flower fairy when you wear one of these.

Actually, you can make a DIY  flower crown. Buy different types and colors of plastic flowers and glue them on a headband. You can either make single colored flowers or mix and match flowers to form a beautiful set that you can wear. Just Be creative!

Using Your Extra Coupons to Help Others Save a Buck

Once you begin couponing, the amount of savings you earn for your family is extremely obvious. After a while, you begin to realize that you have extra coupons and access to deals you don't need, or simply aren't interested in. When this happens, it is the perfect opportunity to take what you have learned and help others. Continue reading below to find out how you can help others save a buck with coupons.

Donate Extra Items
If you have an opportunity to purchase items for free, even if it isn't an item or service you need, you should take advantage of the sale. Instead of simply hoarding free items, or letting them collect dust in your stockpile, you can donate the items. For instance, if you have a large stockpile of razors, but find a razor deal that allows you to score razors for free, go ahead and purchase the razors. Razors are a common item that can be appreciated by just about anyone, so the purchase will definitely not go to waste. Popular places to donate items you got for free and almost free are homeless shelters, non-profit organizations, schools, child care establishments and churches. These organizations can take your donated items and make sure they get to individuals or families who will truly appreciate your act of kindness.

Teach Others to Coupon
While people will certainly enjoy your generosity if you donate coupons and free items to them, they will undoubtedly enjoy learning how to coupon themselves too. Whether you sit down with your college daughter and her friends or organize a coupon class at your local library, teaching others how to coupon like a master will provide them with an opportunity to save money, and to eventually teach others their money saving tips as well.

If you are tech savvy, you can even set up a blog that can teach people all over the world how to use coupons effectively and efficiently. If done properly, an extreme couponer can even earn residual income off of their coupon blog. Blogging extreme couponers can choose to keep their profits or continue to help others by donating their income to a local charity or organization.

Trade Goods or Coupons
Online, especially social media sites, there are local groups of extreme and avid couponers. To get the most out of your extra coupons join one of these groups, so you have an opportunity to trade coupons or goods with others who share your passion for couponing. Sharing coupons allows others to stock up on items they need while providing you with coupons you need to meet your family's needs. Joining these coupon trade groups also gives you another source to tap for leads on sales, clearances and coupon opportunities in your local area.

Many people turn to couponing as a way to save their household money. While couponers can save a considerable amount of money for their household, it also gives them an opportunity to help others. This is extremely beneficial, especially in this economy, because for many people helping others outside their own family wouldn't be a possibility without the use of coupons and other money saving deals.

FitFlop Philippines Branches / Stores

I’ve seen a lot of people wearing FitFlop sandals and I think it looks chic and comfy. It’s just sad to note that there are imitations or fake ones being sold everywhere: Greenhills, tiangge and even in markets for as low as P350 only yay, where in fact a genuine costs P3K up. Honestly I was once tempted to buy an imitation but when I fitted it, it looks like it would not last and might even hurt my feet in the long run.
