5 tips for fun, safe partying on TGIF nights

21 Mar

It’s Friday again! It’s that day of the week when not a few of us are just waiting for the clock to tell us it’s the end of another work week and it’s time to par-tay! Get those figure-flattering clothes out ladies, it’s time to strut your stuff!

But, before you go have fun, here are a few tips on how you can enjoy a great night out without getting the morning after guilt nor the what-have-I-done?! panic attack.

#1. Have a plan.

Yes, it’s incredibly fun to be spontaneous and crazy and wild and all that…

BUT know that bad decisions can lead to bad consequences.

What you want is to have a good time NOT have something to add to what could become a long list of things you regret doing.

Plan how you’ll get to the venue and, more importantly, plan how you’ll get home. If you’re driving, you should know what that means.

#2. Let somebody know where you are.

It’s a good idea to exercise the necessary amount of precaution when out partying. Let somebody know where you are and how they can reach you. Let them also know who you will be partying with. And, please let them know when you expect to be back. Make sure to inform them should there be a change of plans.
If you can, share your location via GPS with someone who can check on you if needed.

Make sure your phones and other means of communication are fully charged before you leave.

#3. Pay attention to what your body tells you.

It’s easy to get lost and distracted at a party but you need to pay attention if your body is telling you that all is not fine with it. You may have drank a little too much or need to rest or maybe even need to go home.

#4. Always be prepared to say NO.

When the occassion calls for it, saying NO can be your best friend.

Want to drink some more? No.

I know we’ve just met but want to go to my place? No.

Want to try something really crazy (and dangerous)? No. No. No.

#5. Have fun with your party getup!

Make going to parties an opportunity to express yourself through your clothes.

Be flirty, be mysterious, be sophisticated, be complex, be elegant … be anything you want to be!

3 cellulite-fighting products you can make at home

19 Mar

celluliteCellulite, also known as “orange peel syndrome” and “cottage cheese skin”, is a condition that gives the skin a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most often found on the thighs and the buttocks and is more common among women than men.

The causes are still unclear as to how cellulite is formed but some of the theories point to: hormonal factors, genetics, lifestyle, and clothing.

Many cellulite treatments are available in the market but, to date, none of them have support in the scientific or medical community.

And, since commercial anti-cellulite therapies may be pricey yet ineffective, it may a good idea to try out remedies that have been reported to work but won’t wreak havoc on your budget!

Here are three cellulite-busting products that are super easy to make and…
…right in the comfort of your kitchen.

DIY Product #1: Moisturizing Caffeine Scrub

photo2(1)
What you need:

1 cup of sugar

2 cups of any of these terrific oils: coconut oil, olive oil, sunflower oil (There are other oils you can use if you do your research!)

1 cup of ground coffee

Between 5 to 15 drops of essential or fragrance oils of your choice

How to make:
  1. Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend away at medium speed.
  2. Once you get an even mixture, your cream is ready to use!
  3. Put in pretty jar and label.
How to use:

Pat yourself half dry with a towel after your shower and then massage your caffeine cream on problem areas. Pay special attention to your tummy, thighs and buttocks. Use every day for best results.

DIY Products #2: InstaCoffee Lotion

What you need:photo1(1)

2 tablespoons of coffee

½ cup of lotion (choose one with a scent that goes well with coffee)

How to make:

Just mix the ingredients together until you get an even consistency. It just can’t get easier than that.

How to use:

Use just like you would any other lotion but, again, paying special attention to problem areas! Of course, if you don’t want to step out of the house smelling of coffee, it may be prudent to stay at home.

DIY Products #3: Massage Oil

What you need:

1 cup of olive or almond oil

3 tablespoon of fennel

3 tablespoon rosemary

3 tablespoons of cayenne powder

1 teaspoon jojoba oil

How to make:

Mix all the ingredients (except the jojoba oil) together in a jar. Make sure the jar lid is tightly closed. Shake the jar at least once daily for at least one week (you can go for two weeks if you like) and, once the base oil looks fairly infused with the other ingredients, use a cheesecloth to strain the oil into a clear container. Add in the jojoba oil to stabilize your mixture.

How to use:

Use as you would any other massage oil but paying attention to your trouble areas.

Now that you have products that you can make at home, don’t forget to also add in having a good diet and regular exercise to minimize the appearance of cellulite.

5 Super Easy Things to Do to Get Sexier Legs and Feel Better

Tip # 1: Get those legs moving and exercise

Some of you… yes YOU!

… are going to say, “We don’t have time to exercise!” Now, let me tell you something you must already know: It’s not true, right? If you have time to watch TV, you have time to exercise. If you have time to party, you have time to exercise. If you have time to go on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube… you have time to exercise!

Here’s some good news, though, for those who don’t want to hit the gym – you don’t have to!

There are things you can do to get those sexy legs going without having to sign up for a gym membership.

Here’s a few:

Walk from the parking lot and back.

Instead of sitting around in a café, go window shopping and walk.  Walk to your colleague’s cubicle some few meters away instead of calling on the phone. Walk the dog.

There are plenty of opportunities to walk. Take advantage of them!

Run around the house, your yard, the grocery store, the airport.

Do these little dashes from here to there – no matter how short the distance – and get your heart rate up even for just a bit.

Dance when you’re happy!

Dance when you’re doing the dishes, the floor, the laundry! Just dance! Dancing is a great way to feel all sexy, expressive, and in the zone.

Tip # 2: Moisturize with caffeine

There is the Nivea Good-bye Cellulite 30-Day Body Beauty Program.

There is the Murad Firm and Tone Serum.

And, there is also the Bliss Fat Girl Slim.

If commercial preparations, however, aren’t your thing, or simply not within your budget, you can go DIY and make your own lotion! We will show you how on our next posts.

Tip #3: Let your legs glow

Ever wondered how those celebrities always seem to have perfectly glowing legs? Wonder no more!

It’s leg makeup!

They come in different forms: liquid, spray-on, powder, and cake.

Go for the shimmers! They’re readily available, easy to apply, and reasonably priced. Make sure you prep your legs up first, before applying leg makeup, for a flawless look.

OR… you can use baby oil! They make your legs glow without the fuss and the pricey tags.

Tip # 4: Get a leg massage

Your legs are one of the most hardworking parts of your body! If anything, they deserve pampering. Getting a good, relaxing message is not only great for those legs but for your sense of overall well-being, too.

Tip #5: Use nude sheers

You know who rock nude tights? The Middleton sisters! The lovely Princess Kate, and her sister Pippa, are paparazzi staples and they are often caught on camera rocking tights!  Sheers make for a classy, elegant, polished look while making legs look wonderfully flawless.
