Plastic Surgery

I LOVE what this actress says about plastic surgery:

And actress Salma Hayek, who is on the cover of the September issue of Allure magazine, also spoke candidly about her thoughts on plastic surgery.

She told the magazine, "I've never had anything on my face -- I've never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing. I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. It’s [plastic surgery] like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.”

Plastic Surgery is not a beautiful thing, when it comes to changing your God given beauty. Don't change it, God made YOU beautifully, just the way He wanted you to look. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I KNOW that not everyone will think we are beautiful...but God does, and there will be others that do too.

Light weight pants (2-3 pairs)

It's good to have some light weight pants for when the weather is in the 60's/70's or you need to cover up in the summer. Pick colors that are flattering to you, they don't have to be light colors, or even neutral colors, just light fabric.

Married Woman's Guide to Lingerie

How to wear Lingerie according to your body type:


Busty women should look for a bustier, garter belt and heels, for a nightie, short shorts and a v-neck T would suffice.

Pear shaped women should look for boy shorts and a demi bra style top or a triangle bra. Also stockings are a life saver, as you can pull them all the way up, as far as you desire and clip with a garter, helps hide cellulite, and is very smooth to touch.
For a nightie, wear silky pants with a thin tank, or an a-line night gown.

For those with a tummy, a teddy style, that has material down the front and cut outs on the sides, that tie in the back, like this:

Also, a sheer camisole style nightie will help feel secure and sexy:

For a nightie, wear a skimming top with shorts or pants.

For a Curvy gal (has a full bottom and full chest with defined waist): Wear a well supportive bra that's cute, with feminine panties or a teddy that tucks in at the waist.
For a nightie wear a silky kimono style wrap/robe. it's pretty and easily comes off, and shows off a full figure well.

For a non-curvy gal, buy a skirt with ruffles, don't wear anything underneath, with a garter belt would be good too, pair it with a bra that has frills. Or buy a teddy that has designs to create the image of curves. celebrate your leanness.
For a nightie wear a button down night top and pants (silk or flannel set) and only button one bottom, show off some tummy and chest. This doubles as a good set of jammies, and you can button all the buttons and wear in front of kids too.


For a Plus size gal: There are beautiful sheer night gowns that drape around tummy and down legs, but have a bra style top attached. Show off your curves on top, and whatever use same tips for the body types above that apply to you. Silky kimono wraps are always nice and sexy. There are a lot of options, check out this website:http://www.millionlooks.com/swimwear-and-lingerie/tips-on-how-to-choose-lingerie-for-a-plus-size-girl/ (warning models wearing lingerie on this site)
For a nightie wear items that accentuate your good feature, if you have good legs, wear shorts and a loose T-shirt, if you have a curvy figure, and your tummy is defined, wear a night gown that shows off your full curves.

Remember you're beautiful. Your worth is found in God, not what you look like, and your heart can be at peace in Him and full on confidence in the bedroom, because you trust in God.

Essential List #21- 3 Good Pairs of Jeans

3 Good pairs of jeans because, You need a pair for: 

Heels
Flats
Dress-Casual


I LOVE jeans, I'm an all American kind of girl, not really, I grew up with a Swedish Mom and Filipino Dad. It's funny, 'cause I don't really know as much of American culture as I should. I sometimes say things a foreigner would, and I don't understand all the expressions, such as "it's raining cats and dogs." I usually end up butchering the expression when I try to use it. BUT, I do love my jeans...Lucky brand esp.

In Shari Braendel's book, 'Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad', there is a whole chapter dedicated to finding the right fit of jeans for YOU. I loved reading it, you will too. It's a good one. I recommend anyone who has a big bottom and small waist to try Lucky Jeans. They are awesome.

Here are some suggested style of jeans right now, that are popular and cute!

With heels:






With flats:

 Dress-Casual:

Mariah

Any jeans that have a flare to them should be paired with heels. Any jeans that are straight or tighter around ankle should be paired with flats or heels. It looks bad when pairing wide leg or flares with flat shoes. Keep that in mind. Also, skinny jeans tucked into boots are SUPER chic...I love that look!

Essential List #20 Dressy Coat

Essential List #20 Dressy Coat

Not very many people suggest this as a staple to your wardrobe, but along with your LBD should be a Dressy Coat. Fur and Brocade are, in my opinion, the best for dressing up.

Essential List #19 Light Weight Coat

Essential List #19 Light Weight Coat

Your Light Weight Coat...this is one you can have a couple of, it's a piece you can find at a decent price at stores like H&M and Forever 21 for a trendy look. It's an item I recommend buying frequently to replace to up to date with trends. 
It's lighter than a Winter Coat, but still provides enough warmth for Fall or Spring weather.


Essential List # 18 Winter Coats

Winter Coats
For a Winter Coat, warmth is the biggest concern. This is a good investment piece. Buying a classic style down coat will last you for years, it's worth the money upfront. Plus, you can find them cheap, cheap when they clearance them out in Spring. Around $30-$50 brand new for a $100-$200 coat, that's at Eddi Bauer and Dillards that I saw those prices last year.

Some styles to think about for a winter coat this year are: Of course down, they are always warm and always "in"; then there are the furs...even faux fur, but real fur is nicer and warmer. Then the poncho/cape style is "in" again, so if you want to try that out, it's SUPER cute...The pictures on the bottom row are some cape styles I really liked.

Essential List #17 Blazer

Essential List #17 Blazer

A blazer in a dark neutral is ideal to have as a dressy-causal jacket. They are great over any outfit, and if you have a particularly more fancy one, it can go over an evening dress too.
Pick a color that looks good on you. Pick buttons that are in line with your body proportions.
If you're larger chested get a 3 or more button tailored suit; it will give enough support for your chest. Also, make sure the there aren't any design lines on the upper arms that touch the breast area.
For a small chest gal a low one button, with detail on the collar would be great.
For a gal with a belly, make sure it's skim fitting in the belly, no buttons on belly, and make sure it's long enough, not hitting at belly area, resting on hips is better.
An hourglass body would look great with some tucked-in waist details on the blazer.
Try on several styles within these guidelines and get the best style in your best dark neutral color. You'll find it working with many of your outfits.

Essential List # 16 Denim Jacket

Untitled
Denim jackets are fun, so American,  and go with almost everything from cowboy boots and a summer dress, to jeans and heels.


Pick a jacket that matches your style. Romantic? Down to Earth? Classy? Tough chic? There are so many options.


This will work with MANY outfits for all seasons but winter.


Essential #15 Cardigan


Think of this as a clock:

The Cardigan is an essential piece to any wardrobe because it's classic and practical. When it's winter and too chilly, even indoors, to walk around in a shirt, you throw on a little sweater, with a jacket over and you're set. Inside you remove the jacket and wear a cozy sweater. In the fall, when it's yet too warm to wear a coat, you wear a sweater that is dressier and more sophisticated than a sweatshirt.
