Style Tips for the Petite Woman

We’re so used to seeing seeing the tall models walk the runway, and the tall mannequins lined up in the boutiques. The problem is that there are a good number of usΒ  – petite women, that struggle to find the right pieces.

Petite women seem to be left out in the fashion world as all eyes are on the taller ladies. The good news is that with a few style tricks even petite women can have a chance to look good and maybe even a couple of inches taller.

The idea is to shift focus from the small frame to your greatest assets. That way you get to enjoy the best of 2 worlds. If you’re that petite woman who wants to keep it stylish, here are some handy tips you can try out right away:

 

Make friends with vertical lines

Vertical lines give the illusion of a longer silhouette. This is because the eyes naturally follow the lines. You can take advantage of this smart trick by wearing clothes with vertical lines or stripes to give yourself that extra height.

Avoid horizontal lines, they would make you look wider and consequently smaller than you really are.

 

Go for the exact fit

As a petite woman you cannot afford to allow yourself to wear baggy clothes. Baggy or loose fitting clothing make you appear even smaller.

Wear clothes that fit to your body. This will accentuate / flatter your shape. But you need to take note: fitting does not mean tight.

Baggy/oversize styles can work if worn correctly. So a baggy jumper with leggings for example.

 

Go for monochrome

The classy monochrome has a way of giving that elongated effect. Of course, you can add a touch of colour but don’t overdo it. Too many colours can negatively affect the elongated illusion you want to create. But if at all you want to add some colour, then keep the tops a light colour while the bottoms dark.

Don’t use shoes with straps

Shoes with straps at the ankles make you look shorter. The strap acts as a dividing line showing where your legs end. Instead go for strapless shoes that have the same colour with your trousers, if you’re wearing long trousers, or shoes that have the same colour with your skin whenever you are wearing a dress or skirt.

 

Stay away from large patterns

Large patterns have a way of dominating your outfit thus making you look very petite. Plus they can be overwhelming.

 

Embrace your high heels

Heels are your lifesavers here. They give you that needed height advantage, plus they look very elegant. However, just because heels are the answer to your problem, it doesn’t mean you should pick the highest heels you can get your hands on. Pick heels that are of a comfortable height, heels you can walk in.

You can enhance the height by wearing long trousers that are of the same colour with your heels. It will give you that added elongated silhouette.

All About Matched Betting

I am proud to announce the fact that I am no longer a Matched Betting virgin. I have heard so much about this Matched Betting service, especially on social media. And I have been dying to find out more about it. Many bloggers claim they make thousands of pounds a month from Matched Betting, so as a serial onlineprenuer, I needed to see for myself. So I am glad I have finally had the opportunity to try it, thanks to the very useful Profit Accumulator website.

For those who have never heard of Matched Betting, it is a tax and risk free betting technique used by individuals to profit from the free bets and incentives offered by bookmakers. It is based on a mathematical equation rather than luck, which makes perfect sense.

While Profit Accumulator is a website that shows the best profitable offers available, and talk you through how to make your profit with the help of videos, very clear instructions, forums and articles. The Profit Accumulator website clearly explains how to win the bets.

As a new customer, I had the opportunity to make use of the free trial membership on Profit Accumulator, and I made the most of it. I found the Profit Accumulator website so easy to navigate, it was very user-friendly, and the videos were very helpful. There were instructions and vidoes that explained every step in detail, and for a novice like me, that is exactly what I needed.

I also liked the fact that the free trial is a completely free subscription. I did not need to put down any card details, unlike some other “free subscriptions” that still insist on having your card details, even though it is free.

The Profit Accumulator website takes the complication out of matched betting because the website does all the ground work for you. All you literally have to do is watch the videos, follow the instructions (taking notes if you have to), and bet. It is that simple.

There is also a dedicated support team available to all members online and via phone, six days a week, which is handy. The platinum members (they pay a subscription) get access to the private forums; a community of over 20,000 like-minded Matched Bettors, all working together with the same goal in mind – to make money.

Overall, I think this free service is worth trying if you are into things like this. And if you are not, you could use it to test the waters and discover what Matched Betting is all about, and see if you maybe into things like it. You have nothing to lose really.

My Kind of Spa Day

You should all know by now that I turn 30 this weekend, and I am going away on holiday to celebrate. I am really looking forward to this trip. I have been planning it in my head for a while now, and it is a city I have always wanted to visit. I will be revealing my destination on Instagram in a few days, so follow me if you are interested in keeping up with me.

My holidays are never complete without a good spa day. I spent my last birthday at a Spa, and I had a very relaxing full body massage. I also had a full body massage some weeks ago in Dubai. That massage was the best I have ever had in my entire life! It was not relaxing in the sense that I didn’t snooze off like I normally do. But I felt so good after. I had all sorts of body pains before I had the massage, but as soon as I finished the intense session, I felt no body pains at all. It was like I was born again, lol. It was that good.

I am definitely going to have another spa day this weekend. I see spa days as essentials; they are not luxuries in my world. My state of mind and body depends on them. So going forward, I plan to have a good spa day at least once a month.

So how does my kind of spa day look like? Here is how:

 

Right Atmosphere and Products

I am very selective of where I choose to have my spa day. You won’t catch me in just any kind of Spa.

I like the Spa smelling and looking nice. And like the great products to be used on me. The products go a long way in me deciding whether I would return to the Spa, and whether I would buy any of the products used. Spas need to be selective of which products they use and where they get their salon supplies. Salon Supplies from Ellisons are really great, so that is one place Spas could check for amazing products.

 

Amazing Customer Service

The customer service has to be amazing. I would love an experienced female masseur (I was once offered a male masseur), who knows what she is doing.

 

Afternoon Tea

I would love to have afternoon tea with yummy cakes offered at some point in the day, preferably before the massage and a drink after the massage. Good food is very important.

Companions

Sometimes I like to have my Spa Day alone, especially when I need some quiet time. But most times I like having some form of company. For my last spa session, I had my sister for company and we both had a lovely time. I have also had my mother and a friend once at a Spa, on two separate occasions, and it was a fabulous experience.
