7 Wardrobe Fashion Staples To Have This Fall

via



 Fall is such a wonderful season. I love the magical transitional period from summer into winter. With the season changing to cooler weather and wetter days; it is the perfect excuse to bring back your layers in preparation for the colder months ahead. Plus add a few new staple pieces as well to boost your wardrobe for the fall season. However, from a fashion perspective, fall can be a challenging time to dress for; so here are 7 fashion staples to have in your wardrobe to keep you prepared for any occasion. 

1.) A Basic White T-Shirt
I cannot express this enough; a basic t-shirt is a staple that everyone should have in their wardrobe and it will span across all of the seasons. A white t-shirt is the perfect base layer no matter the weather and looks just as good under layers as it does out in the open. Pair a basic white T with dark jeans, boots and a jacket for an effortless fall look or layer it up with a scarf and statement jewelry and sweater for something more sophisticated.

2.) A Leather Jacket
I am obsessed with my leather jacket. It literally goes with everything. You can dress it up or down, and pretty much goes with anything. A good quality leather jacket is a must have for the fall season, offering enough protection and warmth from the fickle weather but also being lightweight and easy to wear if the sun does pop out. For maximum versatility, stick to a basic black or brown jacket with simple detailing.


3.) Cozy Boots
Personally I am a boot girl all year long. I love boots. I love wearing them in the summer with shorts and jeans. But boots really come into their own in the fall season and it’s the perfect time to crack out those you’ve had stashed away over the summer months. A good pair of ankle boots are perfect for everyday wear and a statement over the knee boot adds a touch of glamour to any night out.


4.) A Leather Bag
Leather and faux leather are such great materials for the fall season, offering a bit more protection from unexpected rain whilst also pairing perfectly with the autumn golden color scheme. Finding the perfect everyday leather bag is a must for the fall season; try to find some that are both stylish and functional such as the Dutch leather bags which are known for their practicality without sacrificing their aesthetic. 


5.) A Statement Scarf
As the air begins to hold more of chill a statement scarf is the perfect autumn accessory to add a bit of warmth to an outfit. Go for a pattern or color to add a little something to a simple outfit or opt for a chunky knit to add a little texture. Adding a scarf is the perfect item to jazz up any outfit.


6.) Metallic Jewelry
A lot of autumn fashion is very soft, so why not add a little intrigue by wearing a glimmer of gold or silver? Bracelets, necklaces and earrings can take an everyday outfit from day to night whilst also providing a little sparkle to a dreary day.


7.) The Perfect Pair of Jeans 
No fall wardrobe would be complete without the perfect pair of jeans. I love jeans. All color jeans - blue, black, grey. I cannot get enough. Finding the perfect pair of jeans will depend a little on your own style but whether it is a simple pair of skinny jeans, mauve mom jeans or fabulous flairs your jeans will be the core of many an autumn outfit, so find a style that suits you and invest in a good quality pair to last you through the season.

Three Things to Stop Feeling Bad About for a Happier Life


via

Real talk; do you ever find yourself explaining your decision or feeling guilty when you haven’t done anything wrong or generally feeling bad? It’s not an ideal situation to feel as though you have the weight of the world on your shoulders and there are certain things we all need to let go of to live a happier life. Here are some examples. 


Your Appearance
When you look good on the outside it really does help you to feel good on the inside; & it’s not about being shallow or vain. It’s about building self-esteem, confidence and living in a way that’s authentic to you. When you feel good about your appearance you’re happy to be ‘you’; you’re not held back by insecurity or doubt. Don't be afraid to try out some new styles; treat yourself to some new clothes and makeup. Go to the salon and have your hair done, make a change to something you love. You don’t have to be glammed up to the nines every day but you want to know you can make yourself look nice when you choose to. No one looks like the women in beauty magazines (even the models themselves are heavily airbrushed) so stop comparing yourself to others, just be the best version of you. Embrace it. 

The Way You Spend Your Time
When it comes to our friends and family, most of us are always going to be there to help. If they need us for something, no matter how inconvenient; chances are, we’ll put them first as we know they’d do the same for us. However, there has to be limits. Sometimes even well meaning friends and family can take advantage of our good nature, and if you’re the sort of person that struggles saying no or putting yourself first then this can be an issue. It's okay to say no. Don’t be afraid to turn down plans or to generally prioritize yourself , especially if it’s going to impact your mental health. Your time is precious; help others but ensure there are limits and boundaries. If you have a hobby or something you like doing, don’t feel bad about it. Not everyone will understand your passion; as long as you’re still meeting all of your commitments then it’s no ones business how you spend your free time. 

Taking Time To Relax and Do Nothing
We spend so much time rushing around that sitting down and relaxing can feel like an unnecessary luxury. Having time to relax and do nothing is actually good for you. Relaxation is key to your mental health and what better way to relax than to pamper yourself- soak in a hot bath, paint your nails, do a face mask. Light some scented candles or pour some oils in your wax burner- click here to buy fragrance oils online. Don’t feel bad about taking some time each day (or whenever you can) for yourself. It doesn’t make you selfish, a bad parent or a bad person. We all need a little escape and a chance to clear our minds and relax, so grab the opportunity with both hands when it presents itself.

Hacks that will Spice Up Your Dated Wardrobe


via


With the fall season upon us, it is the perfect time to update your wardrobe for the new season. You don’t have to break the bank to look good either. Here are a few quick and simple tips and tactics that will spring your wardrobe back to life.


Check the Fit
You need to examine every single piece of clothing that you have, even your bathing suits and underwear. When you have done this, you then need to make sure that it fits properly. If you have clothing items that just don’t seem to be working, then now is the time for you to get rid of it. I realized after many years of cleaning out my closet; that I always feel better about adding new things when I have given the old, out of date pieces away. However, I totally understand there are those certain pieces you just can’t give up. But what I they don’t fit anymore? Well then you can have those pieces tailored. Cleaning out your closet and going over the fit and style of clothing is a fantastic way for you to downsize your wardrobe so that you can invest in new, quality pieces.

Stay Organized
Now lets pull everything out of your closet and organize your clothing. It really helps to visualize everything that you actually have. When you do, there’s a high chance you will find endless outfits that you have forgotten about entirely. Some advice that helps when organizing your closet is to keep seasonal items together. For example, keep all sweaters together, not mixed in with tank tops. This will make finding clothes way easier and it will also help you to stop taking hours to get dressed in the morning.  Once you have everything organized how you like it you can start putting together outfits and take your wardrobe to the next level.

Get Crafty
One way for you to inject life back into your old wardrobe and save money would be for you to take a pair of scissors and cut a larger opening at the top of the t-shirt. This will show off much more shoulder and it will also make it easier for you to get that vintage look. You might also want to get a needle and create a fun button-down shirt. This will help you to create something that is totally unique too, and it will also make it much easier for you to reuse your older items. Not into crafting your own clothes? No worries, with the fall season upon us the stores are buzzing with new merchandise. PLUS you might even be able to pick up some discounts by shopping for Black Friday deals too, so keep an eye out for those.

It’s All About the Accessories
One of my favorite and easiest ways to spice up your wardrobe is to add accessories. So you don’t break the bank invest in cheaper necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Once you do, you will see how simple you can jazz up any outfit and that you can also do it on a budget. If you have an old bag, why not add some badges, patches or even strips of material? This will transform it into something completely new and it will also give you the chance to cater it to the outfit you are wearing, and you may even find that you are able to mix and match too.

Colors
I love colors. My closet is organized by color. One of the reasons I organize by color is so it's easy for me when putting together outfits. Black is one of my favorite colors to wear, but if you have different colored tops, then why not mix and match them with jeans, or even suit pants? It's okay to take a risk and have fun. 

Sometimes you just need to stop wearing the same outfit all the time because you will find that your outfit becomes stale and you get in a clothing rut. Don't let that happen to you. Be bold, be daring and have a single-person fashion show in front of the mirror. You’ll thank yourself for it.

Post-Break Up Do's and Don'ts

via

It doesn't matter whether you were in a relationship for weeks or years, a breakup is never easy to handle. There is pain and shock and it can feel like a grieving process; one that you need to give yourself time to feel. You will feel horrible for some time, but there will be times where you feel up again before crashing down. Logic has no place in a post-breakup scenario, and all of the old memories will keep surfacing up and down while you try and get your head around it! 


via

There are some stages you’ll go through, from wanting to impulsively go on vacation, to wanting to impulsively burn all of their belongings! There are a few do’s and don'ts that you can follow to ensure that you get through this breakup in one piece, and here they are:

Do...

Distract Yourself

Reading, playing a sport, drawing; whatever it is that gets your juices flowing, bury your head in it. Reading can help you to escape into the world of someone else’s imagination, and it allows you to get over your broken heart. Invest in a book that will let you laugh, cry and feel every emotion: those are the ones that get you through.

Change Your Look

This is probably the one I did the most after every break. For some reason getting a new look always seems to help during this break up phase. Plus, it is no surprise most woman go through a “red hair” phase, and while you might find yourself drunkenly making a list of all the plastic surgery you think you need, it might be worth sticking the the box of red hair dye. You don’t have to change the way you look for your ex, but it would be a good idea to pamper yourself a little - to make yourself feel good.

Remove Yourself From Drama

Delete his Snapchat/Instagram/Facebook/Twitter - whatever social media he has, get rid. Block on WhatsApp and don't get sucked into the drama of the post-breakup spitefulness. You are better than that kind of behavior, and you know it! Digital detachment is easy when you’ve chosen not to stay friends!

Don’t...

Share Passive Aggressive Memes

Believe us when we say a scathing meme, when well-directed, is picked up by the other party very quickly. Don't bring your breakup to the Facebook pile of memes, as it will get back to your ex. You want to stay above that behavior and just focus on you. The world does not need to be involved!

Insult Them Anywhere Online/Publicly

It doesn't matter how the relationship ended, forgive them. Not for what they made you feel, but for yourself. You don't forgive someone else to make them feel good, but so you can package it away and move forward with your own life. Don't allow for arguments, just move slowly on in your own way.

Burn Their Stuff Unsafely

Here’s the bit where we tell you to safely burn the memories. Here are some instructions for a safe bonfire for the photos and the letters you may have written to each other. You don't need souvenirs of your sadness.

What Happens to Your Body if you Don't Have Sex?

via

People talk about sex as if it's some kind of basic biological function, like eating or going to the bathroom. It's something that people need to do, and if they don't, they're storing up problems for themselves in the future. You wouldn't go without food, so you shouldn't go without sex- or so the reasoning goes. 

But is there any truth to this? Does your biology suddenly go haywire if you don't have sex every five minutes? Or it is a perfectly reasonable way to live? 

The answer is probably somewhere in between. Here's a rundown of what happens to the body when you go without for a long time. 

It Could Make Things A Little Less Comfortable Down There

This isn't an issue that affects everyone, but it is something that affects a lot of women. Going without sex for a long time makes things a little less comfortable down there. The vagina tends to feel like it's tightened up, which can make sex less pleasurable when it finally does happen. 

via


It's nothing to worry about though - things soon return to normal. It's just one of those irritating things when you're getting started with a new partner.

Is there anything you can do about it? Well, regular masturbation can help by increasing blood flow. Plus, you can always experiment with toys if that's your thing.

You Could Experience Stress And Anxiety

As the website Mellowed points out, a lack of sex can actually lead to stress and anxiety. Researchers think that there are two main reasons for this. 

The first is a general lack of interest in sex. When libido drops, some women can worry that there's something wrong with them, feeling that they're not "normal." To make matters worse, psychiatrists have an official name for it called Female Sexual Arousal Disorder. The idea is that women should be in a continual state of openness towards sex and that being closed off from it is somehow abnormal. 

The other reason is an overwhelming interest in sex you can't do anything about. When you don't have a partner, it's hard to get your kicks. 

Researchers suspect that having sex releases feel-good hormones like oxytocin that make people feel more connected to those around them. Not having much of this hormone in your body can lead some women to feel isolated and disconnected, increasing the urgency for sex. Again, this can make things even more troubling on a psychological level. 

Your Libido Could Fall

Research suggests that some people can experience a fall in libido when they go without sex for too long. The reasons for this aren't well known, but it could just be the body's way of dealing with the absence of a partner. There's no point making all of the arousal chemicals if there's no way to put them to good use. Loss of libido isn't permanent - it quickly comes back when you enter a new relationship. But it can dissipate for a while. 

The Upshots

While there's a lot of negative talk about going without sex, there are actually a lot of things that are GOOD about life when you're not involved intimately with somebody else. 

The first is the issue of pregnancy. You're not continually worried that at some point, you're going to miss a period. Contraceptives are great, but they're not perfect. Even the manufacturers admit that. 

Second, you're much less likely to get ill. All of the nasty STDs aside, women in sexually active relationships are much more likely to get urinary tract infections than those who go without. These can be painful and difficult to treat, so avoiding them is always welcome. 

Third, you get to know yourself better. Have you ever noticed how intense sexual relationships can be? Even if the relationship is going well, it's all too easy to lose yourself in the thoughts and feelings of the other person. You can often lose track of your own desires and needs. It's a problem. 

Being by yourself, however, allows you to get to know yourself better. You have the time and space you need to find out what you like, and what you don't. It can be a liberating experience. Plus, you can go into a new relationship better prepared. 

Finally, you get more space. If you're an introverted person, this can be a bit of a godsend. You have a chance to conduct your life on your own terms. You don't have to compromise with somebody else. You're more of a master of your destiny.

Reasons Why You May Need to See the Dentist Immediately



You’ve probably tried finding a reputable dentist to sort out any pain you’re having with your teeth or your gums. But due to the severity of the acute pain itself, you don’t want to wait around until next week for an appointment.

via

There’s a whole host of problems that can occur with your teeth, so let’s start with some of the reasons why you immediately need to sit in the dentist’s chair and get looked over. 

Firstly, and perhaps the most likely situation, is a simple cracked tooth. Often the crack is so small that it may not be visible to the untrained eye, but it causes major distress and thus has to be treated quickly. 

Secondly, receding gums (which can eventually lead to gum disease) is a major cause of tooth loss and other nasty problems due to tooth rot exposure. In many cases, unfortunately, it has often progressed too far to be salvaged, but in some cases, if a dentist is seen as soon as possible then the situation could be rectified. 

Thirdly, if you’ve previously had a filling, then the filling itself is actually prone to become loose or break completely. You may not have known this beforehand, though it’s an extremely common scenario and causes extreme pain around the gum causing it to be even more sensitive. Consequently, if your gums, teeth or mouth are being affected by any of these likely causes then there’s only one emergency dentist clinic and dentist to sign up with. 

How To Find The Best Dental Practice

You may have been recommended dentists before by friends or family. But which is the best dental practice for you? From Invisalign to teeth whitening; you need a dentist you can rely on. Keep on reading and you’ll find out.

Your teeth are precious. After all, you only have one pair that will last you your entire life, so you have to keep them healthy, clean and free from disease and decay. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done, and even if you have made every effort to look after your teeth throughout your life, problems do occasionally occur. And when these occasions do occur, you have to be prepared for every situation by having a qualified and masterful dentist that you can rely on. Someone you can ask questions to and turn to in an emergency.

Finding a brilliant dentist is again easier said than done as one’s preference of dentistry location, interior and personnel is completely subjective. What isn’t subjective though and is completely objective are the results that come out of a dental clinic. To find the most impressive practice in your local area – simply type in keywords such as “(location) dentist area”. After finding a range of available private clinics, browse their website to see which offer the best memberships, facilities and staff members. These are the important parts of a clinic so by doing your researching you’ll find the dentist clinic suited to you and your needs.
