Today we are celebrating glorious curves! Accentuating your waistline can be very tricky. That's why we have chosen 4 comfy yet stylish looks anyone (no matter your body shape) can easily pull off. You think hide, we say highlight! Scroll down and learn how to streamline your overall look with our tips and tricks.

1. Create The Illusion

Two simple colors, that's all it takes! Colorblocking is a great way to create the illusion of having a smaller waist. Look for dresses with geometric shapes or where the sides are darker and taper in towards the middle. Let the light central color stand out and the rest will fade away.

2. Belt It Up

You don't have much time? This quick and easy tip is the way to go. Pick out a belt and create the perfect hourglass figure in just a few seconds. A belt will help create a waistline on any look!

3. Combine A Solid Skirt With A Striped Top

Horizontal stripes, combined with a high-waisted skirt in a solid color like white, black or blue will make your waist look smaller! This is because the horizontal stripes visually work as a belt which will show off your beautiful curves and waistline.

4. Accentuate Your Look With Jewellery

You will want to pull your curve-highlighting look together with the right jewellery. Longer earrings and necklaces will highlight your shoulders. A stack of glittery bracelets can draw attention to your hips. These simple details will complete your outfit and will give you confidence!

How To Deal With Under-Eye Puffiness

We might not be able to prevent ageing, but we sure can help slow the process down!...

Everyone has experienced puffiness under the eyes; whether it's due to a late night out, drinking too many glasses of wine, lack of sleep or after a salty meal. Don't worry, the bags under your eyes are totally normal as you get older. The tissues around your eyes weaken with age, including some of the muscles that protect your eyelids. Therefore we have picked out 12 different products that can help you to get rid of the puffiness under your eyes.

Eye Masks

There are masks for just about everything;  the face, body, lips and even the eyes. These masks are designed to minimaze the puffiness under your eyes. Apply these masks right after you shower and when your make-up is removed.

Jade Roller

We know what you might thinking... what is a jade roller? Well, a jade roller is a facial massage tool that is made from a jade stone. This stone consists of many healing properties; is naturally cool to the touch and good to help reduce puffiness. Most of the jade rollers have two ends- a larger and a smaller side. In bigger areas of your face (forehead, cheeks and chin) the larger side is used and the smaller side is used for the hard to reach areas of your face (under eyes).

There are three steps to use the jade roller: 

step 1: Remove your make-up and make sure you have a clean face.

step 2: Moisturize your skin.

step 3: Roll it out using the small end. Roll from the inner eye to the outer corner. Repeat this 10 to 15 times.

 

Eye Contour Serum

These eye contour serums will be great at reducing puffiness as well as dark circles under the eyes.

Eye Cream

Eye cream helps reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles- especially when it is kept in the refrigerator. Apply the eye cream in small dots around your eye.

5 Tips for Travelling in Style & Comfort

The holidays are right around the corner! For many of us this means a lot of travelling, whether you're going halfway around the world to see your family, or are just finally exploring somewhere warm and exotic for your much-awaited vacation days.

It's time to say goodbye to your sloppy airport look and show up to your destinations looking fresh and neat! We’ve compiled a list of 5 tips for you on how to travel in style, while remaining comfortable and practical.

1. Flats, Flats, Flats

Chances that most of us are not like celebrities with assistants holding our bags. So sticking to flats is probably the safest strategy when you travel. With the right choices, you can look just as stylish… minus all the pain. Try wearing loafers and slip-ons so you can save some time at the security gate.

2. Layer it Up

Keep in mind that no matter where you are heading to, it's always colder on the plane. Although you can always ask for blankets, it’s good to be prepared with extra layers for your own comfort. You definitely don't want to risk catching a cold on your holiday.

3. Keep it Soft & Stretchy

A pair of jeans are great for many situations, but can feel restrictive when you need to sit for a long time. When it comes to the perfect pair of pants for travel, we search for something soft and stretchy, with a nice fit. Bonus points if it has pockets!

4. Use Bags that Fit Everything (and Keep ’em Organized)

Let’s face it. You don’t want to dig into your purse for hours looking for your lipstick. But you do want to keep everything you (over)packed for your trip in one place. That’s why we need sizable travel bags that can fit everything yet keep everything you need organized and at your fingertips.

5. Maintenance!

No one wants to look (or smell) like a slob when you get off the plane and get ready to receive hugs and kisses from your loved ones. But that can happen after 12 hours of flying and overnight layovers. Instead of attempting to cover it up with heavy makeup, keep your look refreshed with these magic tools.

Now, ready to start packing up your bags? Bon Voyage!

Over-knee boots are supposed to be elegant and sexy, right?

But if you have to spend your time pulling them up as they slide down your legs, it can ruin your look (and mood). Here are some simple and effective tips to solve this common problem and help them stay put!

ARM YOURSELF WITH NEEDLE & THREAD

It only requires basic sewing skills to sew an elastic band inside the opening of the boots. If you’re a real go-getter, you can try replacing the existing elastic with something tighter. Be sure to measure the circumference of your leg where you want the boots to hit so you use the correct amount of elastic. Find all of the basics tools you’ll need in our selection of sewing kits.

WEAR HIGH SOCKS

Wearing high socks can save your boots from slipping, depending on their size and material. The socks also provide an extra layer of warmth on cold days!

INVEST IN VELCRO

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, you can never go wrong with velcro. Cut a strip and sew it directly onto your high socks, where the top of the boots should be. Then attach the other part of the velcro with glue (suitable for the material) or sew it inside the boots and you’re all set. Check out this video (VPN needed) for a handy tutorial on how it’s done.

If you are skilled enough for a more advanced DIY project, the best option is to mix elastic and velcro. Take a look at this tutorial (VPN needed).

If you just want an one shot solution, you can use a strong doubled-sized adhesive.

Now you can walk around and dance all day and night without having to worry about a thing!
