Lady Laws

In honour of Woman’s Day tomorrow…. There are certain things, I believe in life that us girls need to learn in order to be acknowledged as a full on lady, in a true sense of the word. I am calling these the Lady Laws and I believe we need to learn and master these things and you will be on your way to being the best women you can be….

ComplimentTaking a compliment.

“You look absolutely amazing”. Yes, you do. You spent hours doing your hair and makeup (sometimes even weeks when you’ve been training your butt off at the gym) to look exactly how you look right now. Someone has acknowledged it. Embrace the compliement, think of it as a gift of kindess. Do not and I reapeat DO NOT throw a compliment away when one is given to you. Yes, you might be taken aback and flattered but a simple “thank you” with a smile is a great response. Do not point out another weakness in response to this as it ends up looking like you want your own pity party, and only girls have pity parties – not ladies. Be gracious about it though in the same regard and don’t get a big head about it.

Self DefenseHow to defend yourself.

We live in a scary world. Not just a scary country. There is a high chance that 1 in 4 women has a chance of experiencing a violent crime in her lifetime. Studies have shown that it is virtually always better to fight back in situations as women who have done in studies have always eneded up being less injured than those who didn’t. I’m not suggesting a black belt in karate but a good knowledge of how to defend yourself against a potentially nasty situation will only empower you in life.

Breast Cancer CheckLearning to check your body.

One in nine women will get breast cancer at some point in their lives and early diagnosis is vital for a good recovery. This means, it is ideal to check your own boobies once a month. They are your breasts and no one elses. Its really simple and can be done when you are in the bath or shower. You need to be aware of what is normal for you in look and feel, what changes to loook for and report any changes to your doctor without delay and ensure to go for a mamogram once year once you reach the age of 35 or earlier if you have concerns.

Walking AwayWalking Away From Bad Friendships and/or Relationships

There are so many people in the world that can be toxic for you, both platonically and romantically. If you ever feel as though you are trapped, undermined, anxious, in danger or unhappy around certain people, learn the art of letting them go from your life in order for you to be free. Surrounding yourself with a support group of compassionate loving family and friends will help you see yourself for exactly what you’re worth in life. Do not compromise that for anyone.

PEPLUM, PEPLUM, PEPLUM… is such a fun word to say!

Hiya Poutlings!

Peplums are sweet and stylish and many times I’ve seen someone sporting one I’ve always thought, LOVELY ON HER but not for me… and you know, that really is a bunch of rubbish! Simply because one automatically thinks a peplum will accentuate the hips that is NOT neccessarily true…. 

Which is also true for the general public back in day, peplum was critized for being too dificult to pull off, now it has returned with a modern twist to become one of the hottest trends of the season and win hearts of many fashionistas worldwide.

Peplum is simpler and more interesing now, it has transformed into a new, both bolder and more demure shapes and is no longer something to be scared of.

Peplums come on elegant dresses and jackets, girlie blouses and tops, eccentric pants and shorts and due to so many variations there are plentely of ways to wear them. However if you decide to try this trend, there are a few pointers to take into account for example the illusion peplum creates.

Peplums can have both a slimming and volumious effect, cover your problem areas and accentuate the assets. Here are some styling tricks to take into account:

  • To accentuate your waist, look for a peplum on a jacket that is short and sweet. It should end right above your hips. USE A BELT.
  • To add volume to your hips, wear a skirt or dress with peplum that is puffy and fancy and ends in the mid section of your hips.
  • To make your hips look narrower, opt for a sleek peplum with no volume which finishes after the widest area of your hips.
  • Minimize a large bust by wearing a skirt with a darker colour on peplum and a slightly lighter colour underneath.
  • Go for a total black outfit with a peplum, it will have the biggest slimming effect.
  • Avoid A-line skirts with peplums, only pencil skirts will work to balance your proportions right or you will end up looking like a bus… as my dear Sandylashxx says. hahaha.
  • The hem of your skirt or dress should hit above the knee and just bust below it. If you go for a longer design you will look shorter no matter how long those legs are because peplum tends to cut off the length of the legs.
  • Wear high heels with peplums to keep your proportions right, and there is never an excuse not to wear high heels, ladies!!

Do you have any other tips for pulling off this look? Please share in the comments.
