5 Typical Style Mistakes of Plus-Size Girls

It’s possible to be stylish no matter what your size is. Trendy plus-size women keep proving it constantly. There are no bad bodies, there are poorly chosen clothes. Curvy women are awesome, but not all of them can pick the right clothes to emphasize their strong points and hide what they want to hide. Plus-size women have their special charm that makes them splendid. DatingBrides is a living proof. In order not to lose this charm, it’s necessary to listen to expert advice and avoid common style mistakes. So, here is what curvy girls do wrong.

 

Thinking that only oversize dresses suit them

Indeed, shapeless dresses only make you appear even larger. Once you put on a baggy tunic, you add an extra size to your figure. It’s sad but true. The thing is that shapeless clothes such as lightweight blouses and dresses add looseness to your look. Unfortunately, curvy girls have to be more careful with their outfits. Try to choose those clothes that will expose thin parts of your body. For example, wear a long-sleeved shirt that will emphasize the delicate wrist and put an elegant bracelet on it.

 

Ignoring the correcting underwear

There is nothing shameful in wearing slimming pants or high-waist shorts on a daily basis. Wearing it on a special occasion is even a must. It smoothes the curves, makes your silhouette more graceful and boosts your confidence.

Thinking they look slenderer in black

Fashion experts advise you to get rid of this popular stereotype. Black really works if the shape and texture are properly chosen. Buying only black and brown clothes hoping that will make you appear S-size is a bizarre idea, indeed. Choose new look style dresses (often worn by Adele) to accentuate your feminine figure.

 

Hoping for the belt to do a miracle

You must have read somewhere or heard that to get an hourglass figure, you should bind the thinnest part of your waist with a belt. But if the waist is not that thin, this effect will be hardly achieved. Choose in favor of straight dresses and high heels. It will look much more attractive, and, in addition, you will not have any problems with breathing.

 

Not paying attention to makeup and hairstyle

Neglecting the state of skin and hair, any girl, no matter whether she is slim or plus-size, consciously spoils her image. The wrong makeup and poor or no hairstyle make a girl look sloppy. This opinion is connected with the stereotype about plus-size women according to which they just gave up on themselves. Very often, plumpness is associated with greasy hair and frumpy clothes. But you should do your best to prove this stereotype wrong.

 

Fashion Tips for Curvy Girls

Keep it simple. When you go to a shopping mall to buy some new clothes, make minimalism your friend. Choosing shoes, the best option is the pointed ones. The optimal height of the heels should be 5-7 cm. It will visually stretch your silhouette and make your legs even more beautiful.

 

Choose the right length. Knee length dresses and skirts are perfect for plus-size girls. The best length for blouses, shirts, and tops is about 5 cm from the broadest hip line.

 

Choose the right prints. The right choice will be small prints or vertical stripes. The vertical edging and a row of buttons have a similar slimming effect. Avoid big asymmetrical prints that visually add an extra size.

Ten ways to spend your evenings indoors now it is coming into winter

The sun begins to set a little earlier, the temperature begins to drop and the leaves start to fall from the trees. These are all signs that winter is on its way and with it the amount of outdoors activities begins to decline.

The green fields that people would play football on during the summer have become muddy and less appealing for the casual player. Instead we seek refuge indoors, in the warm, where the weather won’t affect us. We have taken a look at ten ways you can spend your evenings indoors  as we head into winter that includes everything from watching Game of Thrones to playing bingo games.

Films & TV

Granted watching one film wouldn’t be enough, but maybe the entire extended Lord of the Rings trilogy will last as long as winter, or even watch every series of Game of Thrones and keep shouting “Winter is coming!” until the Spring returns the following year.

 

Read a book

There are probably people who find reading a book boring, but when your outdoor activities become more and more limited, settling down with a good book can be a nice relaxing alternative. You can sit in the warm, make yourself comfortable and just forget about the outside world as you get lost in a fantasy world.

If non-fiction is more of your thing, and you are looking into going pro with your blogging hobby, then go have a read of my book – How to Cash In as a Blogger. It is available exclusively on Amazon.

 

Bake

By the time winter arrives, the Great British Bake-Off will be over and with it, your baking enthusiasm may have waned but winter can be a great time to test out your baking skills. You can make some gingerbread men or make some Christmas cake and give some to those that need to stop being a Scrooge.

 

Plan your summer holiday

What better way to make yourself feel warm than to plan your summer holiday? You get to look at all of the sunny destinations and work out where the best location is to get a tan. If you want to make it feel more summery as you research locations, make a nice summer cocktail. You can also work out a plan to get that beach body you’re bound to be wanting come summer.

 

Ice skating

If you’re someone who actually enjoys the cold dark winters then you could give a winter sport a try. Ice skating can be good for both a workout and for being romantic with your partner.

If it’s your first time trying it, make sure to take it slow. It’s not an easy sport to try, and injuries are common amongst beginners.

 

The pub

You could always treat winter like a zombie apocalypse. Just go to the Winchester, have a pint and wait for all of this to blow over. You’ll probably be kicked out of the pub at some point if you wait until winter is over. So perhaps just spend an evening in there having a few drinks and catching up with friends.

 

Games

Whether you enjoy playing the latest game on a console or enjoy sitting down to play a board game, games are a great way to pass the time. You can stay in your own home and let out a little bit of competitive energy. You should remember not to overdo it. No one wants broken console controllers or the game board to be flipped over.

 

Music

Spend some time listening to your favourite music artists and create some playlists to make the time fly by. If you listen to music while planning your summer holiday, you can also create a summer playlist to really distract you from the impending winter nights.

 

Puzzles

If you want to give your mind a bit of a workout then you can get stuck into some brain teasers. Most newspapers usually have a section dedicated to crosswords, Sudokus and word searches. Failing that you can always step outside and find books specifically for these brain teasers to have even more fun.

 

Bingo

Something that has embedded itself into British culture, Bingo is a great way to spend an evening as winter approaches. It’s a great way to socialise with your friends and provides you with the opportunity to make new ones too. There is also the potential for you to win some Christmas spending money along the way.

 

How do you plan to spend your evening indoors this winter? Do you have any plans?

The Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

I have heard a lot of good things about green tea, and I have been dying to try some for myself. So I was over the moon when I got the opportunity to try some Dream Matcha Green Tea the other day. I have been having a good cup of green tea everyday now. The benefits of drinking green tea are too numerous to mention here, but my aim is to touch on the main benefits.

When I think of Nootropics, the first thing that comes to mind is Green Tea. Green Tea leaves are full of amazing benefits and it is certainly more highly recommended than any beverage. I have always known green tea to be full of health benefits, but I was blown away by the amazing benefits a cup of freshly brewed green tea could do for me.

I have been loving this Dream Matcha Tea. The green tea comes as an extremely fine, bright green powder. It has a silky smooth taste, which is great. I am a huge fan of this brand  of Green Tea.

If you are contemplating trying some green tea, here are some of the main benefits of drinking green tea.

 

Helps with weight loss

Green tea contains no calories. Aside from that, green tea is known to have a higher dose of antioxidants than that contained in vegetables. The antioxidants in green tea called catechin polyphenols help to speed up the rate of your metabolism and burn your calories faster. That’s what makes it extremely effective in weight loss.

 

Lowers cholesterol levels

Most fatty foods contain what is called LDL cholesterol, which is also known as “bad cholesterol”. Bad cholesterol is known to block the linings of your arteries and if not kept under check, can lead to several cardiovascular diseases like stroke or heart attack.

Tannins found in green tea can reduce the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. What this does is to clear the buildup of cholesterol. Green tea also reduces the rate at which cholesterol is absorbed into your system.

 

Ensures a healthy heart

Cardiovascular disease can be really scary as it presents no symptoms especially at the early stages. Drinking green tea regularly helps to promote a healthy heart. It does this with the flavinoids contained in the green tea. The flavinoids also help in lowering your blood pressure. For those who are suffering from a heart condition or who have experienced a heart attack, green tea could help you recover faster.

Relieves you from stress

One of the most common problems we face in the world is stress. When not controlled, stress can cause a lot of harm. Green tea does help relieve stress, which is fab!

 

Promotes healthy skin

Green tea does wonders for the skin, thanks to its antioxidants. It contains anti-ageing properties that help to minimize the signs of wrinkles or fine lines.

 

What do you think of Green Tea? Are you a fan? Have you tried Dream Matcha Green Tea?
