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

How to Measure Your Ring Size - An In-Depth Guide
Unless you’re the type of person who knows their own finger size without fail, knowing how to measure your ring size can be challenging. Even if you have a general idea of your correct size, different circumstances may result in inaccurate measurements. Read on to discover a complete breakdown on how to measure your ring size so that you can purchase new rings with confidence and avoid future embarrassment. If you’re planning on proposing, perhaps with an engagement ring, or simply want to start a collection of beautiful pieces of jewelry, knowing how to measure your ring size is essential. However, measuring your finger for this purpose isn’t always straightforward. As well as taking into account several different variables such as the width of your fingers at different times of day (your fingers tend to be slightly larger in the evening), other factors such as humidity or callous build also affect your finger size. How to Measure Ring Size at Home If you're in the market for a new ring, it's important to know your ring size. Unfortunately, finger sizes can fluctuate based on temperature and other factors, so it's always best to get sized by a professional jeweler. But if you're in a pinch and need to measure your ring size at home, there are a few methods you can use. The first method is to cut out a strip of paper or thin cardstock and wrap it around the base of your finger. Make sure the paper is snug but not too tight, then mark where the end of the paper meets and measure the distance with a ruler. This will give you an approximate measurement in inches or millimeters that you can then use to determine your ring size using a Ring Size Chart. Another way to measure your ring size at home is to trace the outline of your finger on a piece of paper. Again, make sure the line is snug but not too tight. Once you have the outline traced, measure the distance across with a ruler and use a sizing chart to determine your ring size from there. Keep in mind that both of these methods may not be 100% accurate, so if you're unsure about your size it's always best to get sized by a professional before making any purchases. Conclusion To measure your ring size, wrap a piece of string or tape around your finger and then measure its length using a ruler. Refer to the chart to find your ring size. Ring sizes can vary slightly from person to person, so it's best to err on the side of caution and choose the larger size if you're between sizes.
The hottest jewelry sale in 2022 is actually sold by the kilo!
This article will detail the secrets of jewelry sales. Why do businesses now prefer to sell jewelry by the kilo? First of all, you need to be introduced to what selling jewelry by the kilo is. Wholesale Jewelry. In fact, there are many similar phenomena in life, for example, many grocery stores need to buy from suppliers, and the suppliers' prices are often lower than the market price because the merchant needs a large enough quantity. So the selling jewelry by the kilo model focuses on sales volume, which is different from the traditional sales practices of a jeweler. Second, selling jewelry by the kilo will be more affordable than the retail price. It is a direct channel of dialogue between the customer and the supplier, and the elimination of intermediary fees can give the customer more discounts. Wholesale Jewelry would be a good choice.

Layered Scent DIY Candle
I try not to stop by Bath & Body Works when I hit the mall. The scent coming from the shop always tempt me to step in. And when I do, I step out with a few antibacterial hand gel, moonlight path body mist, and scented candles. The candles burn out fast and I get them replace more often than I should. Which is why I came to the solution of making my own scented candle. They require some time and work, but it's definitely worth it considering the time spent on driving and parking. In addition, these are fun to make for the holiday season. Materials: Soy wax flakes Crayons in assorted colors Small heat-proof jars Wicks Essential oils Instructions: 1. Choose the number of layers you want to create for each candle. Divide the wax evenly. I used about ¾ to 1 cup wax flakes per layer (so about ⅓ to ¼ cup per layer, per jar.) Remove the papers from the crayons and break into small pieces. Melt soy wax flakes and crayons in a pan. Slowly stir in 5-10 drop of the desired essential oil. 2. Adhere the wicks to the bottoms of the jars using a little melted wax. Wrap the wick around a skewer or toothpick to keep it centered. 3. Pour the first color layer into the jars. Let cool completely. You can speed up the process by placing them outside or in a cool place. 4. Repeat the process with more wax, crayons, and essential oils. To keep the new layer from melting the previous layer, it is helpful to let the wax cool slightly before pouring into the jar. 5. After the last layer is poured into the jar, let the jars sit undisturbed for several hours or overnight. Trim the wicks, top with the lids, and package up to give away.
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.
DIY superhero shoes
I am geeking out hard over these shoes — how absolutely awesome are they?! I am such a big Marvel fan and I can't wait to try this DIY tutorial for myself. The good part about this DIY project is that it is fairly easy, but the result makes it look like it was very difficult! This DIY tutorial comes from the wonderfully creative people at Comic Con Family. Materials For this project, you will need: -- A pair of white canvas shoes -- 2 packs of Avengers (or any other superhero) napkins (you can usually find these at Wal-mart in the party section, at Party City or online) -- Painter's tape -- Mod Podge (matte) (if you want the shoes to be water resistant, get Outdoor Mod Podge) -- Small paintbrush -- 2 bowls or cups -- X-acto knife -- Clear plastic wrap or plastic bags -- Sponge brushes -- Clear sealant spray (optional) You can find the majority of these items at a craft store. Protect the soles of the shoes Use the painter's tape to completely cover the soles of the shoes. The Mod Podge doesn't work as well on rubber so you want to make sure only the canvas fabric of the shoes is exposed. Pick out your superhero Unfold the superhero napkins all the way. Pick out the superhero that you want to put on the shoe and use the small paintbrush to paint a thin line of water around that super here. Then, slowly pull the napkin piece away from the rest of the napkin. Paint on the Mod Podge Use the sponge brush and the Mod Podge to paint on the shoe where you want to put the napkin piece. Then, place the napkin piece on the shoe. Take a piece of plastic wrap and wad it up and rub it over the napkin piece to remove any wrinkles or air bubbles. Continue adding napkin pieces to the entire shoe Repeat the previous steps to cover the entire shoe with piece of the superhero napkin. Make sure the entire canvas part of the shoe is covered. Let the Mod Podge dry completely. Clean up the shoe and seal the napkins Use the X-acto knife to cut around the sole of the shoe and then remove the painter's tape. Make sure to take your time while cutting the napkins off so that you get a clean line. You will also need to use the X-acto knife to remove the napkin pieces from around the shoelace eyelets. Then, if you want, spray a layer of clean sealant spray over the entire shoe to seal the art. String the shoelaces back through the eyelets. Rock your awesome superhero-themed shoes!
