Date-spiration: Getting Ready for a First Date!!

My niece and I the really close since I'm lucky enough to live near my brother and his family! She's a junior in high school, and she's going on her first official date (dinner and the mall!) this weekend, so she asked me for tips on how to do her hair and what to wear.
I told her not to worry too much about, but I thought it'd be fun to make something for her to follow while she gets ready. Hopefully I'm not embarrassing her too much by doing this lol!

Good luck on your date, Tori!!! You'll look awesome :)

The Hair

I always go for something simple that isn't going to A) risk falling out and B) take more than 20 minutes to do! It's really, really not worth it. Your hair will look beautiful no matter how you do it! But, I totally get wanting to do something fun!

Here's three different videos with some fun suggestions:

1) I really love the first idea she suggests--the simple hair knot!
2) OK I'm of the opinion these a bit too fancy, but I know you really love trying new hair styles so I'll share these anyways :)
3) Braids! Braids are great for dates so try these, too.

The Outfit

Okay,I found two different looks I think suit your style :)
1) In the first video, the second look around 1:20! You love floral dresses, but adding a layer to it will keep you from getting cold in the AC and add some fun to it :)
2) Outfit 3 in the second video (skip to 1:25!) I think you love your cardigans and this will be perfect for your date!

The Makeup

Just wear what you normally wear!!! Adding a bunch of makeup will just be too much, especially since your date is so casual. It'll be fine! If you really want to watch a video for inspiration, check the makeup in this one since it's a really natural look.
And the most important piece of advice....

SMILE! RELAX! HAVE FUN!

I agree @ChristinaBryce, overall the most important thing is to be yourself, have a good time, and get to know the person you're spending the evening with!! The butterflies are what make first dates so exciting :D even if it only ends up being one date or a shorter relationship, dates are just for you to have a good time! So have a blast Tori :D and let us know how it goes!!

I'm with love with the COCO
Recently, I'm kind of in love with Chanel. So I kind of searched on the types of Chanel bags!!!! Cerf Tote Released in 2005, this bag quickly became part of Chanel’s classic collection. The Cerf comes in four sizes; Small, Regular, Tall and XL Medallion Once a classic style, this lovely tote has now been discontinued. Most recognizable by its oversized CC medallion zipper pull. Shopping Totes (GST, PST, PTT) This is one of Chanel’s most popular classic styles that comes in a variety of sizes. Typically this bag is made in Caviar leather and comes in a variety of colors, most commonly though, in black and light beige. GST for Grand Shopping Tote, PST for Petite Shopping Tote, PTT for Petite Timeless Tote, and XL. Cambon Ligne Made from smooth calfskin leather with a bold CC logo at the side, this very popular style was first introduced in 2004-2005 and were immensely popular. The line has many different styles and color combinations. While most of this line is now discontinued, the Cambon style is still released in WOC bags and wallets. Boy Bags Karl Lagerfeld designed the Boy Collection as an interpretation of the boyish charm that Coco Chanel was known for. Karl was stated as saying that the very spirit of Chanel was inspired by Boy Capel, the love of her life; which is why this new collection is called the "Boy Chanel." Sizes: Small, Medium, New Medium and Large Timeless Clutch Also known as the ‘Kisslock’ clutch bag because of its CC frame closure. Typically this bag is only offered in Caviar and lambskin leather, however it is occasionally made with exotic python. Camera Case Though slightly elusive and hard to find - the Camera Case is released often as part of the classic collection. The camera case is released in various sizes and has evolved from being a small crossbody bag with the classic tassel pull closure. WOC One of the most popular styles, this wallet on a chain is constantly in creation using different styles and materials. The WOC is exactly what its name implies - the interior boasts several card slots, a zip pocket, and flat pockets, all on a chain strap. The chain can be tucked in or worn across the chest. Common Styles: Classic, Timeless, Boy, Half-Moon, Camellia, Cambon. https://www.yoogiscloset.com/chanel/guide Which one is your choice? My fav is the Boy type :3
Princess Diana's Hairstyles
Princess Dianawas — and continues to be — a style icon. Beyond her captivating fashion looks, the"People's Princess"also had ever-changing hairstyles that inspired salon requests for a generation and then some. The iconic short haircut that she famously wore for more than a decade actually almost never happened, according to her longtime stylist Sam McKnight! 1981 For the official engagement announcement on February 24, 1981, the bride-to-be kept it simple, opting for soft layers. 1982 The new royal maintained a similar haircut during her first pregnancy, but added some bright highlights to freshen things up. 1982 The new mom introduced the world to her first son on June 21, 1982, with her hair perfectly swept back on the front and sides. 1983 In 1983, Princess Diana embarked on a major tour of Australia and New Zealand. At the state reception in Brisbane, she dressed up soft waves with the Spencer family tiara. 1984 After Harry was born on September 15, 1984, Diana stepped out of the hospital with a gravity-defying blowout. 1985 The Princess of Wales later returned to her familiar bangs, albeit with some poofy '80s volume. 1989 (jumped to 1989!) The royal looked blonder than ever at the Queen Mother's 89th Birthday celebration. 1992 This style for a royal banquet (shortly before announcing her separation from Charles) definitely embraces the curls. 1995 The "People's Princess" accepted her Humanitarian of the Year Award with super-shiny (and this time, dry) strands. 1997 In the last year of her life, the Princess styled short, blonde bangs. And with that, it's no wonder her gorgeous look defined an entire decade. What do you think! I personally love her hair... but the fact it never really changed surprised me :)
Want a Really Fun Date Night? Get Onboard With These Drinking Games For Two!
Are you looking forward to plan a date which is out of the ordinary? Then what’s better than having a drinking games night. This idea is sure to make an impression and give you a good time. That being said, are you prepared to ditch the typical dinner date for something fun and challenging? This is your way to go. 1. Go fish I’m sure you would have heard of this card game before. It’s a pretty simple game and most of us have tried our hands at this when we were little kids. But you can turn into an adult drinking game by bringing in some liquor. Whenever the other person gets a pair, you go a peg down. Whoever has the maximum matches wins while the loser takes another shot! 2. Never have I ever If you haven’t played this game before, then you’ve seriously missed out on so much fun. This game is a hit at parties and get togethers, but you can also enjoy it on your date nights. This will help you learn more about your partner and see what the two of you share in common. The rules are simple - the game starts with one person saying what they’ve never done before and in case the other person has done that then they drink. 3. Buzz This is one of those games which can pose some serious couple challenges as it involves them to be good at math! Whether you’re cooking dinner together or waiting for it at the restaurant, all you have to do is count. The catch is that everytime you get a multiple of 7, you say ‘Buzz’. Whoever misses, loses! But hey, you drink first and then start over. 4. Two truths, one lie This is another fun game which can be played without alcohol, but drinking makes it so much more fun. I bet, you’ve already played this game at your workplace or at school. All you have to do is tell your date two truths and one lie about yourself and ask them to guess. If they guess it correctly, then you drink and if they fail, then they go down. 5. Mustache and a movie This one is a comical game which will leave the two of you laughing while enjoying a movie. To do this, all you need is to place a fake mustache on your TV at a random and play the movie. Whenever the mustache covers someone’s face at the right spot, you take a drink. Cheers!
