Get in Shape for Halloween

Get in Shape for Halloween

Halloween is the time for dressing up in fun costumes that are relatable or polar opposite of your personality. It’s the time for women to transcend and show off their sexy without judgment or apprehension.

Choose a Costume

When choosing a costume, it can be difficult to come up with something different than those costumes in a bag and figure out which items are included from the photo on the front of the package. Look, there is something rewarding in creating your own costume for the holiday. Putting in creativity to accomplish a stellar look can reap confidence, compliments, and sometimes, prizes. So, why not think outside the bag this Halloween?

Ideas:

  • Come up with a character from one of your favorite shows.  
  • Put a twist on Halloween classics.
  • Be Punny.
  • Go outlandish; make up your own character.

Make Your Own Costume

Making your own costume doesn’t have to be challenging. Remember, Charlie Brown cut holes in a sheet. Having a great base can help you create a magical outfit for the holiday. Personally, I love picking bases that can be universally useful for other days other than just a costume.

Using wholesale shapewear as a base becomes a sexy Halloween garment with a versatile everyday purpose. So, instead of investing in a bagged costume, create your own by only needing to buy a few accessories to complete the concept.

Halloween Costumes Brought to Life

Here are a few simple ideas to stoke your creative flames while using incredible and affordable shapewear.

Transform into Minnie Mouse

Wholesale Full Body Deep V-Neckline Mid-Thigh Tummy Control Bodysuit

Grab yourself a full-body suit where you can add a polka dot skirt, mouse ears, and a string of pearls to be a perfect handmade Minnie. After Halloween, you can pair this tummy-control body suit with a skirt and boots for a night out on the town.

Invest in a Private Investigator Costume

Grab this bodysuit dress to give a fabulous hourglass shape to your body all year round. Using it for a P.I. costume this Halloween can be simple by adding a blazer, hat, and aviators. It’s a simple costume that will be certain to get a lot of attention.

Sexy Scuba Instructor

How To Fix Slippery Shoes

How To Fix Slippery Shoes

A great pair of shoes can help anyone conquer the world in front of them. However, some fabulous footwear doesn’t fit all the criteria’s needed to make them the perfect pair. Some shoes are too big, too small, pinchy, unsupported, or slippery. Most of these issues can be discovered just by trying them on. Unfortunately, slippery shoes might only be realized after you have them out on the town. So what are some ways how to fix slippery shoes?

Shoe Sole Grips

There are shoe sole grips that can be placed on the bottom of the shoes that feel like a sandpaper sticker. They are easy to apply, just peel and stick. This option lasts for a while depending on how many miles the soles take on.

Duct Tape Fixes Everything

The magic of duct tape can help you fix something that’s broken or remove a wart. In addition, if you are out on the town and slipping all over the place, find yourself some duct tape. Break off about an inch and a half and place on the bottom of each shoe. The duct tape can still have a little slip, but it will gather much more traction than without it.

To make it have more traction, scratch the sole with the duct tape in place against the blacktop or the concrete sidewalk. The scratches in the tape will be like groves that can hug the ground better.

Hairspray for a Temporary Fix

Hairspray isn’t only for keeping your hair in place. Spraying the bottom of your shoes with hairspray will leave a tacky grip that can make it more bearable to walk. It won’t last, but it will work for an evening.

Spray the sole generously. Wait a minute for it to almost dry completely. A little bit of stick will do the trick.

Sandpaper to Scratch the Surface

Using fine-grit sandpaper on the sole of your shoes will allow enough groves to provide more traction. Scratch the surface in a circular motion or in a side-to-side sweep. Do not over-sand the sole. The point is to gain traction, not make the shoes look rustic with sandpaper. By over-sanding, you could make it smooth again or potentially damage the sole.  

Any of these options can help you gain some traction on a night out. The peel and stick option is the most reliable. However, I’ve used the duct tape option on several occasions with great success. Nevertheless, use what you got to stay sturdy on your night out since not all shoes are created equal.

Self Care Tips to Improve Appearance

Self Care Tips to Improve Appearance

Looking your best helps to improve your quality of life and your relationships; that’s why self-care is so important and shouldn’t be regarded as optional. In this article, we take a look at some of the primary self-care features you need to feel amazing and live your best life. 

Sleep Well 

People who sleep well might not appreciate the importance of sleep, but they only need to talk to those who wake up during the night or too early in the morning. It doesn’t seem as though our bodies do much during sleep, but our brains are very active in processing a lot of information. 

When we don’t sleep well, it affects our brain functioning and our appearance. It also affects our immune system making it easier to catch an illness. If you don’t sleep well in general, try drinking some camomille tea before bed or taking some valerian root to help you to sleep.    

Eat Healthily 

Some people think it’s all about the make-up and the way you dress that makes you look the way you want, but that’s not always the case. Of course, make-up and accessories help, but unless you are healthy on the inside, you won’t achieve the appearance that you are aiming for. 

One of the secrets to a happy and healthy appearance is a suitable exercise routine; the other is a suitable diet. Not only do you have to avoid your cravings for high-sugar, high-fat foods, but you need to couple exercise with a healthy balanced diet with supportive minerals and nutrients.

Health Check-Ups

Again, health needs to be your core concern when you want to improve your appearance and your overall wellbeing. When you don’t live a healthy lifestyle, it shows in the form of poor skin, droopy features, and teeth that appear dull when you smile. Change this with checkups. 

Most dental professionals recommend that you visit the dentist for a checkup every six months. During a checkup, a dentist will perform a scale and polish to remove any plaque to make your teeth shine; they can also advise on lifestyle practices to support your dental health.  

Treatments 

If you want to look your best, you need to look after yourself inside and outside. Looking after your internal health is the most important thing since this is what makes your face shine and gives you the energy you need for living, but treatments are also an excellent way forward. 

Treatments can range from skin care treatments like laser surgery to wellbeing treatments like aromatherapy and acupuncture. Not only will these treatments improve your physical appearance, but they will also improve your mental wellbeing by providing some extra relaxation. 

Exercise 

Although it comes last on the list exercising is probably the fastest and best route to wellbeing. Humans have always been active animals, and our modern sedentary lifestyle is not supporting our wellbeing in the best way. That’s one reason diets such as intermittent fasting are so successful; they align with our ancient past. Integrate exercise into your weekly lifestyle.

How To Cement Better Habits

How To Cement Better Habits

Something that will help all of us to live better lives is the ability to foster and cement good habits on a regular basis, especially where we are replacing bad ones. It might be better to think of them more as useful habits and less useful habits in that regard. If you are wondering how you can effectively cement some better habits into your daily life, then there are many things to consider. Let’s take a look at some ideas of how you might be able to do this more effectively. You’ll find the following is all really useful.

Take Stock

One of the first things you need to do is to take stock of your life as it currently stands, in particular your habits and what they tend to be. It’s hugely important here that you are being as honest with yourself as possible, as otherwise, you are going to struggle to actually make the necessary changes. As part of this, you might find that there are some un-useful habits that you would rather do away with, or you might sense a distinct lack of a particularly useful habit that you think you should develop. You will now need to follow your nose with regard to those.

Identify Some Goals

Next up, you can start to think about some of the things that you would like to be different in your life, so you can start working towards them. In short, you should try to identify some goals so that you can decide on which habits you might want to begin developing and building from. It might be as simple as wanting healthier teeth and gums, or as huge as wanting to lose a lot of weight, or anything in between. Just make sure you are clear on them.

Break New Habits Down Into Components

Once you know what you are aiming for, you can start to think about the habits that these will require – and in order to make that more manageable, you might want to break down those identified habits into smaller components that are easier to put into place. In the case of having healthier teeth, as we mentioned above, that might include: visiting your local dentist, setting an alarm to floss, and so on. This is going to feel much more doable than trying to do big changes all at once.

Turn Habits Into Routines

Next up you are going to want to turn those habits into genuinely unbreakable routines. This is when their effectiveness starts to become really clear, and it’s the kind of thing that can really radically transform your life. One way to achieve this is to use a process known as gamification, where you trick the mind into the new habit by treating it as a game. This can be very effective, and it’s something you might want to check out if you are really keen on making big changes in your own daily life and seeing those results very soon.

Are you in need of a little TLC? Have you overlooked parts of your self-care regime? You are not alone, with the demands of busy lives, work schedules, and family commitments it can be hard to prioritize yourself and your wellbeing.

Hair

Starting at the very top, what condition is your hair in and when was the last time you went to the salon to have it cut? If you can try to make some time to make an appointment for a freshen up, a cut and color, or a new style. Those dry and split ends will thank you for it. Alternatively, you can simply dedicate some time to spending a little longer in the shower and using a hydrating or caring mask for your hair to give it a new lease of life and leave you feeling brighter. 

Teeth 

Your teeth make up such a formative part of your face, appearance, and smile. A straight, white set of teeth can make all the difference to how you look and feel so spending a little time and perhaps money to improve your smile could be game-changing. If you are conscious about your teeth then schedule an appointment with an orthodontics clinic to see how they may be able to help you. Or perhaps you might simply benefit from a DIY home tooth whitening kit to brighten up your smile. 

Hands 

Moving further down to your hands now, or more specifically your nails. Together with your face, your hands are part of yourself that is on display all of the time and used for so many things. Therefore looking after your hands should take priority. Ensure you moisturize your hands day and night with decent hand cream and why not treat yourself to a manicure to freshen up your nails and give your hands and nails the TLC they deserve? Finally, a top tip if you are out and about all day – don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your hands. Hands are commonly overlooked when it comes to sunscreen but are often the most exposed. This will help to protect your hands and help reduce the signs of aging 

Gut health 

The health of your gut is thought to impact your overall health and wellbeing considerably more than researchers ever realized. Ensuring you fill your body with healthy and nutritious foods can have a profound effect on the workings of your gut and in turn the rest of your body, health, and wellbeing. Some simple ways you can do this are to eat more fiber, drink plenty of water and ensure you take sufficient amounts of prebiotics. 

Feet

Finally, finish up with your feet. Your feet take you everywhere and should be treated with love and respect. Be sure to pamper your feet, make an appointment to remove hard skin, keep toenails cut, and treat yourself to a pedicure every now and then to keep your feet in the best possible shape.
