Cupid Countdown: Chic Love Story

Alright ladies, I wanted to share a card about dressing the part of your love story. And I'd LOVE to hear your love story, which you can comment on below, or even better, write a card about it! (YAY!!!!)
When it comes to fashion, the basis of everything that we wear is utilitarianism--functional garments. However, that's just the beginning. The rest of it is based on style, beauty, trends, ideas, visions, goals and STORY.
If you can believe it, we're not only well into 2016, but marching through February on a steady course. Two months in, with Valentine's Day peeking 'round the bend, what are you wearing to tell/attract your epic love story?
When you interview for a job, you're told to dress for success; my contention is that we should be dressing for all areas of success in our lives. Are you looking for love? Maybe you're totally crushing right now. Are you dressing in a way that respects WHO YOU ARE while still telling your story?
I put together this really cute #februarychic story board. It's about being fun, flirty, modest and love-story ready!
GUCCI
Plissé lamé mini dress
$1,490
Gucci's mini dress is crafted from baby-pink lamé that shimmers with silver yarns - the plissé pleats add texture to create a high-shine effect. The classic shift silhouette is cinched at the center by an elasticated waist.
The modesty of the neckline balances the length of the skirt. The glittering reflection of the lame gives this a flirty spice, while the soft color pink is delicate, feminine and Valentine appropriate.
SAINT LAURENT
Jane metallic lizard-effect leather sandals
$695
Saint Laurent's signature 'Jane' sandals are updated in glossy rose gold lizard-effect leather. This Italian-made pair is designed with slim straps for a leg-lengthening effect.
Virtually identical to the Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandal (that I LOVE), this is a modern approach to reptile as it has a pink-gold metal finish that is so hard to come by. It matches the dress without being matchy-matchy. And the open-toe sandal design is STUNNING!
ROCKINS
Flora printed silk crepe de chine scarf
$29
The watercolor-inspired print that decorates Rockins' scarf pays homage to the botanical creations of Flora Starkey. This skinny style is cut from silk crepe de chine and finished with glossy fringing.
Fringe may still be a by product of what was popular in 2015, but it's totally appropriate for this time of year as it adds a layer of modesty, femininity and "warmth" if his arms aren't already wrapped around you. The floral print says that you love all things pretty, especially flowers and wouldn't mind stopping by a sidewalk florist for a handful of posies.
CHANEL
No. 5 Perfume
$100
Elegance. Beauty. Sophistication. And modern sensuality. Classic Chanel perfume fragrance that has stood the test of time and caressed the naked bodies of both women and men, vicariously.
J. Lo said it best, "I judge people by how they smell, not what they look like." AMEN! Make sure you're hygiene is on point and your perfume is delicate, soft, yet punctuated with classic notes that tell YOUR STORY. Chanel may not be for you, but you should wear something that accents and works well with your body's chemistry. Wear just enough that he has to keep leaning in, closer and closer to get that intoxicating aroma. Too much will ward him off--doing the exact opposite of what you want.
Now it's your turn! What does your wardrobe say about you? How is it working to tell your epic love story? What, about your clothes, is working against you?
(MY APOLOGIES if I missed any guys--in taking them off this list!!!!!!!!!)

I love that you gals are embracing your individual style and comfort. There is no one-look-fits-all out there, nor should there be. This card has achieved what I mostly intended--to encourage everyone to consider their clothing options, which you all have done long ago, which is how you developed your style. @1FallenAngel @jordanhamilton @LAVONYORK @EasternShell @TracyLynnn I'm not offended if my look isn't spot-on. This is purely an idea. :) Thank you!!!!
Ahhh, I adore this vintage look! Depending on how you wear the scarf, which I love, and your hair, it can be styled to look even more vintage! I do love it! ^_^ 💜
That scarf 😍 Although the dress is important, I always find the way you accessorize a dress can either make or break your outfit. plus you can wear a dress a million times and achieve different looks when you use different accessories! thank you for sharing!
@marshalledgar @nicolejb omg yessss! Do we have to come back?
Let's all go to Italy @nicolejb @ButterflyBlu

5 Tips to Select the Best Maternity and Nursing Bra
Motherhood encompasses responsibilities, which must not affect the health of the mother, especially her growing breasts. An empowered woman must gather all the motherhood essentials that allow her to fulfill all her motherly duties and conquer the world. Among the many maternity essentials, maternity and nursing bras are the intimate requirements for all the expecting and nursing mothers. Unfortunately, most ladies are unaware of how to pick the best maternity and nursing bras for themselves. Ladies worry no more as below you will find 5 incredible tips to select the best maternity and nursing bra. Comfort is the Priority Comfort is the priority element when looking for maternity and nursing bras. While attending to the support factor, the best nursing bra and maternity bra will also be stretchy and moisture absorbing. Moreover, you should always look for comfortable and breathable fabrics that do not irritate your skin and feel lightweight on wearing. If you are thinking of keeping the bras on while lounging, it becomes even essential to buy comfortable bras during pregnancy. Choose Wide Band Maternity and Nursing Bras Bras with wider shoulder strap and back bands do well in supporting your growing breasts. Also, the best feeding bra must be adaptive enough to accommodate the changes in your bust during the entire tenure of pregnancy. Ensure that the bra has wide straps and multiple hooks on the back band. Initially, you will be hooking the bra in the tightest hook, then move on to the loosest one to allow more room for your fuller breasts. Perfect Fitting The best maternity and nursing bralette provides more support if fitted perfectly. A too tight-fitting bra is hazardous and will get uncomfortable over time. Also, a loose-fitting bra will deviate from the purpose of providing support to your growing breasts. A well-fitting maternity or nursing bra is the one that hugs your breasts and provides optimum comfort. Easily Manageable If it takes an hour for you to unsnap the bra cups, then the nursing bra is unworthy of purchasing. Bring in such nursing bras that have nursing clips and drop-down cups. Such bras are easy to manage and can be opened-up single-handedly to feed the baby. Consider Lifestyle Active mothers need a bra that performs well in supporting the breasts and keeping them sweat-free at the same time. If you own an active lifestyle, get your hands on a sports nursing bra that is tailored only fo r health-conscious mothers. Choosing the right maternity and nursing bra is essential for the health of a mother. If you are thinking of ‘where to buy a nursing bra and maternity bra', then visit the online store “Lovemere”. You will get valuable products at some great deals. So, waiting for what! Go and shop for your perfect size.
DIY Solid Perfume Balms
Did you happen to see the homemade perfume card I shared a week ago? You can see it by clicking here. However, this is a different idea where using perfume, you can create solid balms. This easy diy allows you to pour into moulds or into cosmetic trays. These would be perfect for camping, on-the-go and for cute gifts to your girlfriends. Supplies Needed: Beeswax Sweet Almond Oil (or another carrier oil such as coconut) Fragrance oils of your choice (Lemon, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Lavender) Containers to hold your perfume (cosmetic trays, lockets, tins, etc.) Step 1. Recipe is always the same because it's based on ratios: equal parts beeswax and carrier oil. Start a small batch of 2 tbsp of beeswax and 2 tbsp of carrier oil. TIP: If you find your beeswax/oil mixture to be too thick once you are melting down, you can always add a little more oil as you go. Step 2. Get your perfume scent on point before you start the melting process. Make sure it's a subtle scent. A good rule of thumb is to create a scent that isn't so strong that it would prevent you from having a good night's rest. Start with 10-15 drops and increase from there. TIP: So much "smelling" may turn off your receptors, preventing you from smelling the fragrance. To reset your senses and start over, take a whiff of coffee beans. This will clear the scent from your head. Step 3. Prep your containers for hot wax. You want lids off and everything prepped and open. Step 4. Use a double boiler to heat your beeswax and oil on the stove. DO NOT MICROWAVE! Be sure to heat your beeswax on low/medium heat and stir as it melts down. Add your fragrance oil into the melted mixture once the beeswax is completely melted. Step 5. Carefully pour the hot wax into your containers. They will start to harden quickly. If they harden too fast, simply return to the double boiler and heat up. Let this set up and harden. Then you are able to slide it onto your skin for a silky perfume balm that will feel and smell amazing!
Un coach personnel aide à réussir votre relation amoureuse
Les êtres humains sont des animaux sociaux qui ont soif d’attention et d’amour. Toutes nos activités tournent autour de l’objectif d’être accepté et admiré. Les relations jouent un rôle très crucial dans nos vies et nous dépendons complètement de nos relations pour notre bonheur. La relation d’une personne avec sa famille, ses amis ou un autre significatif affecte dans une large mesure sa disposition. Cependant, l’une des associations qui a le plus grand rôle à jouer dans la vie d’un individu est celle avec notre conjoint . Nos conjoints sont ceux avec qui nous promettons de passer toute notre vie, et si cette relation tourne au vinaigre, tout semble se détériorer. Un lien fort entre les époux donne la force de surmonter tout obstacle et de combattre tous les problèmes qui se présentent à eux. L’importance vitale de ce lien est la raison pour laquelle de plus en plus de gens se rendent compte du besoin de conseillers en relations et de Coaching couple. Qu’est-ce qui cause la rupture des relations? La raison pour laquelle les relations et la plupart des mariages échouent ces jours-ci est que nous ne pouvons pas voir nos partenaires comme des humains qui sont tout aussi imparfaits que nous-mêmes. Nos notions sur les relations amoureuses et le mariage ont été contaminées par le monde fictif des livres et des films. Nous considérons nos partenaires comme des individus parfaits, un chevalier aux armures étincelantes envoyé pour nous. Cependant, c’est loin de la réalité. Nos partenaires ont autant d’imperfections que n’importe qui d’autre. Au fil du temps, nous nous rendons compte qu’ils ne sont pas si parfaits que nous les avons initialement perçus. Il est évident que nous serons déçus et contrariés, tout comme nos partenaires sont parfois déçus de nous. La prise de conscience que c’est la vérité de la vie et que nous devons être une équipe en acceptant les imperfections de chacun et en nous aimant quoi qu’il en soit, est le secret d’une relation fructueuse. Malheureusement pour la plupart des gens, cette prise de conscience survient un peu plus tard, alors que beaucoup de dégâts ont été causés. Les coachs relationnels et matrimoniaux nous aident à voir nos partenaires comme des individus imparfaits qui nous aiment malgré nos défauts. Ils nous motivent à lutter contre toute attente, à s’accepter et à aimer la relation que nous entretenons avec nos partenaires. Nous avons des moments heureux et tristes, il y aura des moments où nous rirons et remercirons Dieu de nous avoir bénis avec nos partenaires, mais il y aura aussi des moments où nous ne pourrons pas nous regarder dans les yeux, où nous nous ferons pleurer, mais une relation est tout ça. Une citation d’amour est faite de temps heureux et sombres, nous devons donc accepter chaque obstacle comme une phase et non comme une fin. Pourquoi les coachs relationnels sont-ils importants? Relation amoureuse nous aident à redécouvrir pourquoi nous sommes tombés amoureux de nos partenaires. Ils nous aident à communiquer et à résoudre nos problèmes. C’est un coach matrimonial qui fait comprendre aux couples que les relations ou les mariages ne se limitent pas à la phase de lune de miel, mais se soutiennent mutuellement et partagent leur vie. L’embauche d’un coach matrimonial permet aux couples de s’attaquer efficacement aux difficultés qui se présentent à eux et d’entretenir leur relation. Pour rechercher des conseils en matière d’amour et de mariage, il faut d’abord reconnaître leurs difficultés et avoir le désir de s’amender. Les coach personnel qui aiment les relations ou leur mariage mais qui s’y sentent étouffées devraient chercher des conseils pour gérer efficacement leurs indifférences. C’est efficace parce que lorsqu’un étranger donne un aperçu et ses opinions, les deux partenaires savent que c’est la vérité et personne n’est offensé. Au contraire, ils le prennent au sérieux en tant que conseil d’un expert et y travaillent. Ces experts fournissent un plan ou une stratégie personnalisée pour chaque client afin de sauvegarder sa relation.

3 Things That Happen When You Call A Girl A Slut
Slut, whore, hoe; these words have become so engrained in our language that most of us say them without a second thought. But....I think we should take a second and think about what really happens when you whisper the word slut about the girl who just walked by. How it feels when slut is screamed at a stranger in the street. The domino effect such a small word can ignite. Lets talk abut the 3 things that happen when you call a girl a slut. You take away the girls right to own her sexuality The idea of a slut is so stupid. The fact that people still believe you can actually judge a persons self worth by the number of people they slept with is just barbaric. Get with the times. Women have the right to their own bodies and they can sleep with whoever the fuck they want. If you have a problem with that, don't try and sleep with them, I doubt they will be to broken up about it. You force others opinions of her While slut shamming is fucking stupid, people still let the word "slut" influence their opinions of someone. This can actually seriously harm a women's reputation, their relationships, their families reputation, and can even go as far as to stop someone from getting ahead in life. Slut is a very powerful word and can actually oppress the person who is deems "a slut." You perpetuate slut shamming and violence With slut shamming usually comes violence. More harsh words are expressed, bullying, cyber bullying, and depression is just the beginning. Worse, the idea that a slut will sleep with anyone can actually lead to rape and sexual assaults (fucking barbarians.) So please, do us all a favor and get out of the middle ages. Those were fucking awful times where no one even attempted to bathe themselves, so why would you ever continue to believe they were correct about a women's sexuality if they couldn't even figure out decent hygiene? End slut shamming, because who you sleep with is nobodies fucking business.
Victoria's Secret Perfume Repels Mosquitoes. Really.
When you're out getting a head start on your Christmas shopping this weekend, you might want to stop off at Victoria's Secret and pick up some perfume. A recent study published in the Journal of Insect Science has shown a pretty interesting relationship between mosquitoes and the Victoria's Secret perfume 'Bombshell', finding that wearing this perfume can actually prevent mosquito bites - sometimes more effectively than leading insect repellents currently on the market. The perfume - priced at a hefty $68 per bottle - might not be the most economical choice when selecting a bug repellent. However, researchers at New Mexico State's Molecular Vector Physiology Lab insist that discovering what makes this perfume so effective could help product developers continue moving away from the current active ingredient in most repellents on the market - DEET, a potentially toxic oil that can cause allergic reactions to those with sensitive skin. The lab tested 10 different repellents against a control and found that while DEET-based repellents worked more effectively overall, for a non-DEET product, the perfume remained a steadily effective repellent for over 2 hours. So, why does this Victoria's Secret perfume work so effectively? According to the report, the perfume was chosen for its purple passionfruit, peony, and vanilla orchid notes, citing that the team was interested in finding a correlation between mosquito activity and 'fruity, floral' fragrances. "There was some previous literature that said fruity, floral scents attracted mosquitoes, and to not wear those. It was interesting to see that the mosquitoes weren't actually attracted to the person that was wearing the Victoria's Secret perfume - they were repelled by it." So, will you be spritzing on some floral notes the next time you head out into the mosquito-filled world? Or would you much rather spring for a standard repellent - DEET and all? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection!

Illuminated Perfume Solid Perfume Lockets The Designer Of The Product Says: "Since the nose is an open passageway to the brain, what better way to connect directly with the plants than through the experience of inhaling beautiful scents presented in a gorgeous locket?"
