How to Cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms

I wrote about my issue with changing rooms in stores some weeks ago, and I was pleased to find that many other women struggled with trying on clothes in dreaded changing rooms. The discovery wasn’t surprising to me at all. I knew I wasn’t the only one avoiding store changing rooms. If you Google up “Dreaded Changing Rooms”, you will find many articles on this issue. Which is why I am writing this post on how to cope in the Dreaded Changing Rooms, if you find yourself there.

Go for the inner changing rooms

My main issue with the changing rooms is my fear that someone would stumble in mistakenly or deliberately. The curtains also do not provide enough privacy. I find that there are usually little gaps at each side which is why I like to go for the inner changing rooms for a bit more privacy and security.

 

Be realistic

My first tip when it comes to surviving the changing room is to be realistic. Select clothing that would suit your body shape and make sure they come in the right size. There is no point for you to pick a size 12 dress if you are a size 8. The dress would never look good on you. Also, the fact that the skirt looks amazing on the shop assistant does not mean it would look good on you. Go for styles that would complement your figure.

Being realistic in the changing room is a way to make the process a lot easier.

 

Walk around in the pieces

Before you decide on whether you are buying the pieces, make sure you sit down and walk around in it. That way you would get an idea of how the clothing would look and feel on a regular day for you. Also, you sitting down is a way for you to take your time and have a good look before you decide on whether to buy or not. What looks good standing up may look horrible when you sit down. That dress that looks lovely when standing up may look tight and off when you sit down.

The last thing you need is to rush when trying on clothes. You are in the changing room already, you may as well take your time.

Give yourself a 360

I know many of us struggle with the mirrors in the changing rooms. It could be due to the lightning and the type of mirrors used but you need to give yourself a 360 when trying on clothes. Using the mirrors would help you see the whole outfit from all angles so you get no nasty surprise when you are out and about in your new piece.

 

These tips do work for me when I have to deal with the dreaded changing rooms. I like to avoid changing rooms as much as I can which is why I go for online shopping, but when I have to go into the shops, these tips come in handy.

Using Baby Products for Beauty Purposes

*PR Samples and Affiliate Links.

I love using products for different reasons . That way I make the most of them. Having the twins opened my eyes to many ways of using their baby products along with them. The house was filled up with their skincare products and baby wipes, so it made sense to use some of them when I could. We are fans of Johnson’s Baby Products. We have used many of their products and they are really good. I have found ways of using these baby products for skincare/beauty purposes.

Here are some of the baby products and ways I use them in my skincare/beauty routine –

 

Johnson’s Baby Shampoo

I use Johnson’s Baby Shampoo to clean my makeup brushes. I like to clean my makeup brushes regularly with this shampoo because it leaves them very clean and smelling great. There is no need to buy a specific makeup brush cleaner. You could just use good old shampoo to clean your brushes and get them smelling fabulous! This Johnson’s Baby Shampoo is very mild and as gentle as pure water, so don’t worry about it damaging your makeup brushes because it won’t. It is also free  from parabens, sulphates and dyes.

Johnson’s Baby Oil

I use this baby oil or some things. It works great as a massage oil. I also use it as a nail/cuticle oil. My hands get really dry sometimes and this Johnson’s Baby Oil works great for moisturising my hands as well as my feet. It is a great handy moisturiser to have around. I love having this baby oil around. It locks in so much moisture, more than double the moisture to keep the skin soft and healthy.

 

 

Johnson’s Baby Lotion

I love to apply this Johnson’s Baby Lotion on my legs, especially in the summer season. This lotion smells so good and leaves my legs lightly fragranced and very moisturised. It is a great lotion to share with the whole family.

 

Huggies Baby Wipes

I love using Huggies Baby Wipes. They are really good. I used them when applying makeup and when I need to wipe makeup off. It is handy to have packs of these baby wipes in the house and in bags. I love them so much!
