first date at the beach

How to Dress for Your First Date at the Beach

There is something inherently romantic about beach dates. You can feel the sand between your toes, almost taste the salt in your mouth, and the gentle breeze is definitely doing your hair a favour by making it seem like you’re on a movie set. However, picking out the perfect outfit for a beach date makes this experience less pleasant. You can’t go with the usual classics such as the little black dress or spice up a casual jeans combination with your favourite stilettos. Don’t ruin your beauty sleep over this; here are a few tips that will make your style just as beautiful as your hair fluttering in the wind.

Is it sun-and-fun or sunset and romance?

First of all, you need to separate these two very different beach dates. If you are going to the beach in the middle of the day, when everyone, including you, will swim, sunbathe or play sand volleyball, you can get by in your usual swimsuit and some accessories. However, if we are talking about a romantic evening at the beach, and perhaps even a picnic with wine (you’re so lucky), you should up the game a little bit. And the following few tips are all about upping the game.

Jeans and all that goes with them

Take out your favourite pair of jeans shorts from your closet, and rock it with your bikini top. This is an especially great choice for an active day on the beach. If you are planning on wearing shorts in the evening, spice up the combination with a cover-up top (think something light and dreamy like a crochet piece), multiple bracelets, a floppy sun hat and a casual tote bag.

When you think about it, it’s all about a stylish cover-up

Although they’re mentioned earlier, they didn’t get the attention they deserve. Cover-ups are the 101 of beach dates, because they can make the transition from an ordinary day on the beach to a hot date seamless. The same goes for the transition between a romantic walk and a “let’s go night swimming” decision. Plus, they can make you look different on the beach each day, even if you are wearing the same swimsuit. The most stylish among cover-ups are, of course, kaftans. As the summer is approaching, kaftans in the UK are making a huge comeback, so it is time to equip yourself with a few.

Maximize your style

You know what we are talking about? There is nothing more whimsical than a lady walking along the white stretches of sand in a light maxi dress. This outfit is made for you particularly if you are a fan of the bohemian style. Even though it doesn’t require any further styling efforts, you can finish up your look with various details, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, hats, hair jewelry (why not, even a flower band), bags, etc.

Beach elegance

Maybe your beach date is unlike any situation mentioned above. Maybe you will have a real deal romantic dinner with wine, music and flowers. In that case, it is only natural to dress up more than in the previous cases. You need to find the balance between dressy and comfortable, though. High heels and cocktail dresses are out of the question, of course. There are several combinations you can choose from according to your sensibility. You can wear non-jeans shorts and a transparent blouse (which can have laced sleeves for the extra ‘wow’ effect). Another option is a mini or midi dress made of lightweight material. Consider breathable fabrics like linen, lace, rayon and silk.

Finally, your outfit is not the only thing you should think about. When it comes to makeup, you should go with a natural look, without aggressive details like eyeliner and lipstick. Now go have fun on your date!

The Art of Manliness: Tips for Single Guys Planning a Living Room

The Art of Manliness: Tips for Single Guys Planning a Living Room

Being a single guy in the 21st century can mean lots of things – you’re free to explore your sexuality, do whatever you wish with your free time and basically act any way you want, as long as it’s socially accepted – but there’s one more thing most guys usually don’t think about. Being single also means you’re responsible for your own living space and the way it’s organized, and if you’re a young fella ready to impress lots of potential partners, you have to put your mind to it – after all, you can’t just bring back your date to a filthy and unorganized apartment, can you? Therefore, your living space needs to be as perfect as possible, so here’s a quick guide to decorating your living room all single guys are going to appreciate.

Create a focal point

Let’s get one thing straight first – if you’re a young single guy, the chances are you’re sexually active and always interested in impressing new potential partners. That’s why your living room needs to have an amazing focal point that will get their attention and serve as an effective conversation starter. While this can be basically anything – a fireplace, an unusual artistic artifact, a giant flat-screen TV or anything in between – you need to give it proper attention and make it stand out. Creating a great focal point might take some time and you should think about it first, yet it’s eventually going to be worth the trouble: not only will all your visitors be impressed with your living space, but you’ll feel better on a daily basis there as well.

Arrange your furniture

People generally don’t expect single guys to know anything about interior decorating and arranging their furniture in a proper manner, so why don’t you try to change this paradigm and actually do something impressive? This is a two-step process that will ultimately turn your living room into a much cozier, nicer and more welcoming space: first, you need to declutter it and throw away everything you don’t absolutely need, and then rearrange the furniture to fill out all that free space you’ve created.Luckily, you don’t have to be an interior decorator or spend a fortune hiring one to do the work for you, but just go online, find a couple of layouts you like and try to replicate them in your living room. Whatever you do will be all right as long as it’s classy and tasteful, so start decluttering and arranging your furniture as soon as possible!

One perfect piece

Once you’ve arranged your focal point and decided how to organize your furniture, it’s time to go a step further and take things to a whole new level of simplicity and comfort. Namely, most guys forget that they don’t need a ton of unnecessary chairs and coffee tables scattered all over their living room. It’s perfectly enough to have just one piece of furniture they can always turn to for a relaxing session.

This might be their favorite armchair, a beanbag or even a chaise longue, but what the majority of people prefer are comfy and luxurious couches that provide back support and look astonishing. Besides, they save you a ton of space, which is particularly important for people with small living rooms. After all, you should get a piece that’s multifunctional, comfortable and practical, so you can use it all day every day.

Unusual décor

Again, single guys usually aren’t the biggest experts on décor and their living rooms have a tendency to include a ton of stuff that should have never been created in the first place –colorful paintings, uncomfortable chairs, impractical coffee tables and a TV that’s just too big for a particular living room. Instead of making these types of mistakes, you should go the other way and try something else instead: pick just two or three unusual decorations and base your entire living room layout around them.

These can be anything you like, even some of the most classical and boring guy stuff like movie posters or sports memorabilia, but, if you treat these objects with care and turn them into something rather unusual, you’ll create a miraculous vibe around them and take your living room décor to a new place. In the end, you’ll surely feel better looking at your favorite football jersey in a classy display case than at an abstract piece of art you know nothing about!

Bring out your inner manliness

In the end, there’s another thing you mustn’t forget when decorating a living room if you’re a single guy – the fact that you’re a single guy! This means your living space has to showcase your inner manliness and show the world you’re a real guy’s guy with a sense of style. Of course, this doesn’t mean your living room should be full of tacky and ridiculous items, but just those that reflect who you really are.

For instance, if you’re a comic book fan, you shouldn’t hide your passion – on the contrary, embrace the entire MCU and DCEU craze that’s quite popular at the moment and create an Avengers-themed bachelor’s pad that will make you feel like a superhero from the moment you wake up till you return from your night out. Alternatively, if you’re into sports, don’t stop at the aforementioned framed football jersey, but take things even further: turn your living room into a man cave and start watching your favorite sports on a huge TV while sitting in your comfortable leather armchair. In short, whatever you’re interested in can be incorporated into your living room décor and this will not only make you love your personal space even more, but also show all your guests that you know who you are and aren’t afraid to share it with the world.

When it comes to materials for a single guy’s living room, try to stick to wood, marble, stone and metal as these materials are both sturdy and manly at the same time, so they’ll help you bring out your inner manliness and truly represent your decorating style.

5 Reasons Why Premarital Counseling Is A Must Before Saying “I Do”

It’s natural for anyone who’s getting married to be optimistic – to be confident that nothing can break them apart and nothing can go wrong. The truth is, a lot of things will change after marriage, and even the happiest of all relationships can fall apart without proper preparation, attention, and investment.

This is where premarital counseling comes in. As its name suggests, it is the type of couples therapy in preparation for marriage aiming to help your relationship grow stronger. However, this couples therapy is far from the sweet, romantic talk you might think of. You seek counselors not only to talk about the things you love about each other but the unattractive things you just prefer to keep under the rug.

Ahead are five major reasons why premarital counseling is crucial before tying a knot.

7 Attractive Ways To Impress Her On The First Date

First dates are quite scary.

But do they really have to be?

The answer is NO.

Now I know that you only get one chance to make a good first impression. And if you are meeting the person for the first time, the first impression will be really important.

You need to make her time worth it because in this busy world nobody has time. You are lucky that she took a time out of her busy schedule to meet you.

Feeling pressured?

Don’t worry as these 7 simple and attractive ways will not only help you impress her but will open the gates for a second date too.

1. Ask Her Questions

Here I don’t mean start shooting one question after another.

Ask her genuine question and give her time to answer. Show interest in her answers. The more interest you show the more she will want to talk. And if she doesn’t feel like answering a particular question don’t push. Give her space.

A Pro Tip:

Keep question prepared before the date. So you can avoid the awkward silence. Here are some questions that you can ask.

  • Where are you originally from?
  • What’s your major?
  • What type of music are you into?
  • Do you have any sibling?
  • Where did you attend School?
  • Do you like your job? What do you want to do next?

Here you can know about her interests and you both can find a common ground. Just don’t make her feel like she is giving an interview. Which brings us to the next point

2. Keep The Conversation Interesting

Here again, you are not taking an interview. So, you don’t want her to feel that this is a job interview. Instead, keep the conversation interesting. You can do this by asking questions that are engaging like

  • Are you a cat person or dog person?
  • What’s your way of having fun?
  • How do you like to spend your Saturday night?
  • What kind of movies do you like?
  • Most embarrassing story that comes to your mind
  • What’s your favorite cuisine?

This way you’ll not only know more about your date but also begin to like each other’s company. As she starts to have fun she will be more at ease with you. By noticing her body language you can tell if she’s interested or not.

3. Tell Her About Yourself

Now obviously she isn’t here only to talk about herself.

She wants to know about you too. Talk a little about yourself.

Tell her about your likes and interests. Answer her questions. Don’t give a straight “No” to any question as it may make her feel that you are not interested.

Instead, give a more detailed answer to why you dislike or like something. But don’t go into too much detail.

If you want to make it more interesting you can tell her tales of your past. Like how you went camping with your friends or anything funny like how you messed up your friend’s birthday party. By making her laugh you can break the tension.

But here’s the deal:

try avoiding things that are immature and sad. Like telling her how you pranked someone or making someone cry may not be a good conversation during a date.

And remember – whatever you do, don’t start talking about your ex how you miss her this will only kill her mood and make her wanna leave.

For more read the article “15 ways to bring your first date to ruin“.

4. Put Your Phone On Silent

There are many mistakes to avoid on a first date. But this may be the one you should give priority.

Think about it.

how rude it would be if you’re talking and your date is using the phone or interrupts you to take a call.

It’s the same for them when you interrupt them to take a call. It kills the mood and the flow of the conversation.

So the next time you are out on a date, keep your phone on silent and if the call is not very important it can wait until the date ends.

5. Keep Your Alcohol Intake In Touch

Drinks may be a great way to loosen up but moderation is the key.

A drink or two may be enough you don’t need to take a shot each time you get a little nervous.

Why?

Because you don’t want to be your drunk self and believe me he is not as fun as you think he is.

Also, there may be a chance that you are a loose tongue when you get drunk. And if you are, the only thing you will do is embarrass yourself and her.

6. Choose a Good Spot

Now the place you choose for the date may be one of the first things that she will notice.

You have a lot of options but you don’t know which to select. In my opinion, going to cinema may not be the best choice. Because you won’t get a chance to talk and know each other.

Instead, choose an activity that both of you will enjoy and get a chance to talk too.

Here are some activities that you can choose from.

  • Going to a karaoke
  • Attending a local festival, convention or fair
  • If she likes games Arcade may be a good choice
  • Going to the zoo
  • Cook something together
  • Minigolf
  • Going to a park
  • Skating
  • Picnic
  • Even going to a pool may be fun

These are only the tip of the iceberg. There are many other choices you can choose for. Just come up with something where you can have both fun and have a nice conversation.

7. Be Yourself

I can’t emphasize enough on this.

You don’t need to fake an accent or you don’t need to act cool. There is a reason she went out with you. So, just be yourself. She liked something about you or else she wouldn’t have shown up.

Now you may be thinking what if she liked your fake self that’s why she went out with you. How long do you think before she notices and what then? Wouldn’t you love if she likes you for who and what you are? So be who you are.

Just by keeping these 7 things in mind you can avoid making mistakes that you will regret later on. So, just be yourself good luck.

9 Differences between Being Single And Married

When people are single, they tend to go out every night in search of a hot one night stand or a crazy adventure. However, once they get married, they simply have to settle down and spend their nights browsing through celebrity Snapchats or watching movies with their better half. Besides nightlife, there are many other big differences between being single and being married. Check out the 9 most significant ones.

  1. Clothing And Style

Single: When people are single, they’re constantly trying to impress everyone around them in order to attract a mate. Clothing and overall style are two very important factors when it comes to this particular mission. Both men and women are almost always well-dressed. Some singles even exaggerate with this and can develop sort of an outfit obsession, so to say, because they believe they have to look their best all the time, especially if they’re actively seeking a relationship.

Married: On the other hand, when they finally get married, men and women are not that obsessed with fashion trends anymore. Most ladies get rid of those high heels in exchange for comfy and warm footwear. The case is no different for guys either. They swap those tight jeans for baggy and comfortable sweatpants. Still, it’s not okay to get overly comfortable as well, as it’s proved that dressing up and looking sexy here and there can reignite the flame and keep your sex life in check.

  1. Parties

Single: Let’s be real, most single people are constantly trying to crash some party in order to score a hot date or a one night stand. They are full of energy and enthusiasm. Moreover, they are often the initiators of such events and are more likely to host them so it’s safe to say that going to parties is their favorite activity.

Married: However, married couples are avoiding parties as much as possible. They will go to certain events simply out of the respect for the hosts, but they will always look for the opportunity to leave the party early and have a nice quiet evening at home.

  1. Exercising

Single: Bachelors and bachelorettes are constantly trying to stay in shape. And while it certainly can be explained by their need to improve health and increase the overall energy levels, it also has a hidden, biological background that is closely related to their sexual self-esteem – They need to look good in order to impress other singles and this is something that a regular exercising can provide.

Married: Gals and lads who are taken don’t even think about physical activity. They simply don’t have enough time and motivation to hit the gym on a regular basis. They have found their soul-mates, so their job is done. And while this is natural to some extent and can be tolerated for certain time, married people have to be aware that it can also be potentially harmful to a relationship itself, as spouses can develop anxiety or can experience decreased energy levels. This can have a direct impact on their mood, which will become gloomy more often that it should be, so engaging in any physical activity that suits one’s personal preferences is always welcome.

  1. Spending Money

Single: When you’re a loner, you can spend your money recklessly. You can treat yourself on a daily basis and buy yourself some rather unnecessary things such as the 26th nuance of a lipstick (because you’ve missed that one in your collection) or a fancy new video game that will probably be on sale in a month or so but hey, you need it now!

Married: Reckless spending is absolutely impossible when you’re in a committed relationship or marriage. Moreover, everything is far more complicated when you have to plan for two, from monthly utilities and cell phone bills to food, clothing, and travels. There is also a possibility for something unexpected to happen around the house at some point so you have to save some extra money in case you need to call a plumber or an electrician, for instance.

  1. Hanging Out With Friends

Single: When you’re not involved with anyone, hanging out with friends is your number one activity. Most single people are ready to get up in the middle of the night and go out for a drink because they have all the time in the world.

Married: Wedded individuals are not that flexible. The majority of them don’t have time and energy for socializing due to hectic lifestyles, while others will make excuses not to go out. This isn’t good either, as occasional dates with friends can bring us a necessary dose of freshness and break the established routines.

  1. Eating

Single: Solo men and women don’t have established eating schedules and diets. They eat whatever, whenever, and wherever they want, including 1 AM meals in front of the TV while binge watching Game of Thrones, for instance.

Married: The case is completely different when it comes to couples. These people share everything and they plan their meals. They usually eat together and at the same time because it can help them save money and because it’s a kind of ritual.

  1. Date Nights:

Single: Bachelors and single ladies are always planning their date nights to the smallest detail. A romantic dinner, movies, and a long walk are implied. This has a lot to do with a fact they don’t know what their dates so well and thus want everything to be as perfect as possible.

Married: Couples are more relaxed. Most of the time they get out without a plan and see where the road takes them. They usually end up back in front of their TV where they can enjoy their favorite show while eating a delicious meal.

  1. Traveling

Single: When it comes to traveling, single individuals are rather spontaneous. These fellas and gals are able to pack a small suitcase or a backpack and simply hit the road without a plan.

Married: People who are married, on the other hand, can’t afford that type of unpreparedness. Couples need to organize a trip for two or more (in case they have kids), and that’s not always a simple task.

  1. Sex

Single: Sexual encounter is the most exciting, exhilarating, and a rather spontaneous experience when you don’t have a permanent partner. It can happen anywhere and anytime and it’s often filled with thrill of the unknown.

Married: This doesn’t apply to married people. They’re usually too busy to be spontaneous, so they need to plan ahead. Once you get married, you’ll know the exact time and place of your next “lovemaking session”.

Relationship Tips For Women In The 21st Century

Modern relationships are hard, no doubt about that! It doesn’t matter if you’re dating a widower, a young man, or a mature gentleman, being a successful woman and maintaining a fulfilling love life is anything but easy. We live in a rather fast-paced modern society where there’s no time to stop and rethink your motives, ambitions, and actions. This lack of time is exactly what makes dating extremely hard for women. If by any chance you have the same problem, make sure to stick around and read these crucial tips that will help you sustain a successful relationship in this chaotic 21st Century.

Don’t Choose Your Career Over Love

Nowadays, a lot of young women are sacrificing their love life in order to pursue illustrious and lucrative careers. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a successful business career, but completely neglecting your love life can cause serious problems in the future. If you focus solely on your job, you will lose that all-important touch you need to have in order to be good at dating. Therefore, you need to find a perfect balance between your job and romance. Don’t neglect your partner, include him in your everyday activities and allow him to share the load with you. This way, you’ll be able to improve your position at work and maintain a functional relationship.

As we’ve already said, it’s perfectly normal to want a good job and a successful career, regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman. However, what most people fail to realize is that jobs come and go, but true love is once in a lifetime. Sure, everyone needs money in order to survive in the modern world and the only (legal) way to obtain it is by working, but what is life if you have no love in it? Think about it.

Be Honest, Be True, Be Yourself

We live in a cruel world where people love to judge other people based on their looks, clothing style, and music taste. It’s almost impossible to be yourself and be accepted at the same time. This is exactly why you must not care about other people’s opinions. You need to be brave, honest, and true! If you manage to do that, men will be all over you! A confident woman is an extremely sexy woman!

Here are two possible scenarios of what may happen if you’re being dishonest about yourself while dating someone. In the first one, your date eventually finds out that you have been pretending to be someone you’re not the entire time, gets utterly disappointed and shocked with you and most likely leaves immediately. In the second, the lies you tell about yourself stick from the beginning, not allowing you to completely relax while you’re with your partner, making your whole relationship with him a lie. Either way, it’s not good.

Don’t Be Afraid To Express Your Sexuality

Anyone can be sexy! However, not every woman has the courage to express her sexuality! If you want to have a successful love life and find/keep your man, you need learn how to access your sexiness. Don’t be afraid to show off your physical attributes in a classy and sophisticated way. Feel free to tickle their imagination with sassy and provocative remarks. Don’t hide your wild sexual drive, use it to attract potential partners or keep your current one.

Also, note that there is a fine line between “knowing how to carry what you were given” and overdoing it. Instead of hiding your sexuality, like we have mentioned above, make sure that everyone (not just your potential/current partner) realizes just how hot you can be. However, don’t exaggerate and overexpress your attributes, as it may make you come off as “trying too hard” or even as slutty. Don’t close up but also don’t let everything run wild – stay in balance, just like with everything else in life.

Learn How To Listen

This is one of the most important relationship tips for a modern woman. Most ladies today are not able to have an open conversation with a man. They’re trying so hard to keep up with this chaotic world of ours, that they forgot how to communicate with the opposite sex. Listening to your partner is the crucial aspect of every relationship. If you don’t listen to what he has to say, how do you expect him to listen to you? Slow down and truly listen to your man. You’ll see that being in a relationship is not that hard at all.

If we’re being completely honest here, men really do have a one-track mind. When he’s watching the game, that’s all he’s doing. When he’s listening to you, once again, that’s all he’s doing. This also means that when he’s talking to you and letting you know how he feels and what’s going through his head, you should probably listen carefully because you don’t know when it’s going to happen again and it can be hard to make him talk about that stuff if he doesn’t feel like it.

Think About the Future

Dating is mostly about what you do and say right now, however, the end results can vary quite a lot depending on what you’re looking for. That’s why it’s important that you keep your goals in mind, no matter how serious they might be. Some people want to hook up, others are looking for serious relationships – regardless of what your target is, always keep it in your sights.

This mostly refers to marriage and kids. If you don’t want to get married in the near future and you haven’t even thought about having kids, your potential partner should know that. Furthermore, you should not be forced into changing your mind or your priorities, no matter how much you may like the person you’re dating. Love should be unconditional, which means no conditions should apply neither to you nor your partner once your relationship begins.

Hooking Up From Message No.1 – How to Talk to Women on Tinder

Although Tinder is a fast-working app and lets you meet people online for various purposes, it’s not like you can just ask for a blowjob right off the bat and expect a girl to accept your offer. Hooking up with chicks via this app isn’t as complicated as trying to use it for dating, but you’ll still need a certain dose of know-how if you want to persuade any woman to hook up with you simply based on your chat with her.

1. Patience, Patience, Patience…

You know how they say that patience is a virtue? While it’s most certainly not a flaw, it will be very useful in case you’re talking up a girl on Tinder.

Most failures in these scenarios come from male impatience. Sure, you aren’t supposed to waste your time on a chick who obviously isn’t DTF (down to f***), but you shouldn’t rush ahead and give up or try to force a hookup if there’s real potential in a girl who really is DTF but is playing hard to get.

2. Talking is Key

If a girl you’re chatting with doesn’t agree to have a one night stand with you right away, it means not only that she isn’t an easy chick, but also that she wants to make sure that she can be safe around you and have a great time if she hooks up with you.

This is why it’s important that you talk to a girl about things which aren’t related to sex. We know it sounds like a waste of time because you aren’t trying to marry this woman, but it can be really productive if you manage to assure her that you’re a really fun guy who only wants to have casual sex with her – nothing more, nothing less.

3. Wait for the Green Light

Once you’ve approached a girl on Tinder tactically and while still giving off a gentleman vibe and you’ve managed to get her to accept your hookup invite, you should get a clear sign from her that “all systems are go.”

It’s not going to happen every time, even if you’re the most persuasive man on the planet. When it does happen, however, don’t jump the gun – wait to get a green light for her, which will be obvious and without any doubt if she’s really down for it. Otherwise, you’ve got nothing to look for there, so move on to the next chick.

4. Keep Your Cool

So, you’ve got the thumbs-up from her and you’re taking things off Tinder and into real life. This doesn’t mean that you should immediately suggest bumping uglies with her as soon as possible – instead, keep your cool and be a man about it.

If she wants to skip all pleasantries and move straight to the main course, you shouldn’t have any problems with that. But if she doesn’t says it herself, suggest that you meet for a drink first, because the most important thing is implied anyway. Why not be a gentleman while at it?

5. Honesty Above All

Let’s face it – hooking up is a pretty standard activity nowadays. Not only is it completely fine if you do it, but in some cases, it’s actually preferable if you just hook up with someone instead of entering a relationship with them. This is why it’s of critical importance that you’re always honest about your intentions and wishes.

Pretending like you’re looking for romance while your only goal is to have casual sex never leads to anything good. Sure, it might work as far as getting a person to sleep with you, but you can rest assured that your true goals will come to surface sooner or later – and when they do, all hell will brake loose.

Instead of that, why not just be straight up about what you want and why you’re even communicating with someone in the first place. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a hookup, so try to be honest about it when someone asks you “Why do you want to be with me?”

6. Don’t Give Up

Like we’ve mentioned before, patience is a virtue when it comes to hookups (or anything else in life, really). This doesn’t only apply to actual communication with someone you want to hook up with, but also to looking for those who would interested in such an activity.

Thanks to the advances of modern technology, there is more than one way to find a hookup in the XXI century. Instead of just going to a popular club or bar, you can now sit down in front of your computer and type in a bunch of things in order to find the perfect person for a hookup.

Nevertheless, rejection still exists, even on the internet. You might get shut down a dozen times or more before you come across a person who’s even remotely interested in hooking up with you. This is actually pretty normal, because with online dating came a much larger pool of potential relationship and hookup partners, which is why most people won’t stop until they find exactly what they’re looking for.

It’s really important to always remember that you shouldn’t give up. Even if you get rejected 20 times, you should still keep on looking because your perfect hookup might be just around the corner.

7. Manners Maketh Man… and Woman

Although a hookup isn’t exactly a real romantic relationship, that doesn’t mean you can do whatever you want and get away with it. Be polite and show that you care, because it might pay off in the future.

Instead of never calling or seeing a person you’ve just hooked up with after the fact, try and send them a message a few days later to check on how they’re doing and if they want to grab some coffee with you. This will help maintain that friendliness that all hookups imply and it might just turn casual sex into real romance – you never know.

7 Must Have Makeup Items You Should Take On Honeymoon

A girl starts dreaming about her marriage since she was a small little girl once attended
someone else wedding. Through all these years growing up she dreams about her prince
charming, plans for wedding dresses, makeup artists and all the adventures she is going to have
with her life partner. Honeymoon is yet another special event for the newly married couple. As
the planning and preparation for wedding is going. On the other hand couples keep on
preparing a checklist of all that things they may need on their long holiday. Other than shirts,
pajamas, clippers, tweezers, hair accessories and skin care products, makeup items are yet
another essential that you must count in. Brides to be shop a lot of stuff that sometimes turn
out to be waste of money and effort you put into buying it. Therefore, we have come up with
some amazing makeup products that you must incorporate in your makeup bag to enjoy hustle
free beautiful look while you are enjoying your life’s probably most beautiful days. Before
starting I think I must mention that no matter what makeup you are wearing keep your skin
care regime at the priority because a good skin leads to good makeup application. One more
important note, go with your basic beauty routines so you do not have to think about threading
or waxing in a while.

Primer:
Primer is an important product that you must incorporate in your vanity box however it is
neglected by many. But you must not neglect it let me tell you the reason why. You must be
using durable and high quality makeup products that claim to give you full coverage for hours
and hours. But honeymoon means going outside every then and now which brings exposure to
sun and pollution. Roaming around also causes sweating that can melt your makeup away. In
addition to this you do not have enough time and place to retouch your makeup again and
again. Therefore, to make your makeup stay longer you must invest in a good primer as it
minimizes your pores and decreases secretion of sebum that helps your makeup stay longer in
place.

CC or BB cream:
Well during your wedding days you must have wear a lot of makeup and heavy foundation. So,
at this time you can go with fewer amounts of makeup yet perfect look. If you want to go out
with light weighing face try to use CC or BB cream instead of heavy face foundation. In addition
to this you can find BB and CC creams that have SPF build in it. The one additional benefit of
using these creams is that it will protect you against suns UV rays while you are roaming around
your life’s sun.

Mascara:
During wedding bride wears makeup for all day and night and there are times that they become
tired of wearing makeup and wants to put on least makeup yet wants to look beautiful. For
such days make mascara your friend. Lush, thick and long lashes who does not like it? The

answer is everyone. Mascara is a sole player that even shapes your eyes if applied with the right
technique. While purchasing one you can get confused between different varieties of mascara
availed in the market. However, I would suggest you to go with tubing mascara as it covers your
lashes on 360 degrees and make them look even fuller.

6 Smart Makeup Tips for your Wedding

Eyebrow Groomers:
Eyes can change the game all over and your eye makeup gets into flow with well-groomed
eyebrows. As I have mentioned that before going out for honeymoon get your eyebrows
shaped. But if you are going for a long weekend you will be needing eyebrow groomers for
perfect eyebrow look. There is different kind of eye brow groomer available in the market. They
usually come in powder, pencil or gel but different companies have also introduced eye brow
stamps. All these makeup items are used to fill in the brow. However to keep your grown
eyebrows at place you can use a clear mascara. Clear mascara works exactly as hair setting
spray and keeps your eyebrows in stay in place for the perfect arch.

Peachy Blush:
I must say blush is one of my favorite makeup items. Especially when you are travelling because
at this time we need to click pictures every then and now and adding blush to your cheeks
provides your cheeks live, makes your smile prettier and makes you look beautiful in your
honeymoon pictures.

White Eyeliner:
Usually after tiring days and sleepless nights can make your waterline appear red, eyes dull and
sleepy. To hide the tiredness and redness you can use white eyeliner to tight line your waterline
to make your eyes look wide open and beautiful. In addition to this, tight lining your waterline
with white eyeliner creates the illusion of bigger eyes by eliminating the gap between your
eyeballs and eyelashes. You can use white eyeliner as an eyelid primer too to make the shadow
color pop-out. There are many uses of white eyeliner to know them check my latest post.

Makeup Remover:
Another makeup product that comes at the last in the priority list is makeup remover. Yes
cleansing helps washing out the makeup but sometimes removing waterproof makeups get on
our nerves. Therefore use a makeup remover to help you remove the entire makeup product

from the skin to avoid any breakouts as makeup contains chemicals that may cause skin
irritation and allergy if applied overnight. In addition to this keep makeup wipes handy to
switch your lip color easily and frequently for different looks at different places while travelling.
These are the makeup products other than basic items to keep in your vanity box when you are
going for your honeymoon.
