Dreams Can Come True

Outfit Post Image 2016

 

What are dreams? They can be described as successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur mostly in the mind during certain stages of sleep. Do dreams have meanings? Do dreams come true? It depends on the dreamer and the dream. I have always been a dreamer for as long as I can remember. And my dreams do come true 99.9% of the time. Strange I know but true. I remember my classmates in high school jokingly begging me not to dream about them, because whatever I dream about would happen for real within days. As I got older, my dreams became more infrequent and I started to notice a pattern. I could go weeks without having a single dream, and then have multiple dreams every night on a random week. And then I realised the triggers. I would likely have a dream when I am exhausted, restless, anxious or worried about something.

Most of my dreams become a reality or become the complete opposite. Some mornings, I would wake up knowing fully well that I had a dream but I won’t remember a single thing. I think dreams are crazy mind games sometimes.

This pattern went on until I became pregnant some years ago. My dreams became very vivid as soon as I took in. I read about how vivid dreams can become during pregnancy but I never imagine how real they would feel. I could hardly fall asleep throughout the duration of my pregnancy, sleep eluded me but whenever it found me, I would have multiple dreams in 1 night, and they felt so real. I was not comfortable on the bed, so I slept on a recliner chair on most nights (that recliner chair was a life saver), and I observed my dreams were more frequent and more bizarre than normal. I dreamt of the silliest things some nights but most of my dreams were centred around my babies, labour, and my pregnancy. I dreamt of what their sexes would be, their development in my womb, various pregnancy stages, labour and delivery, what they would look like, them being toddlers, you name it, I probably dreamt it.

Looking back now, I think the vivid dreams had to do with my pregnancy hormones, because I found out that many pregnant women complain about vivid dreams too. It could also be down to the fact that I could hardly have uninterrupted sleep with the constant toilet trips, discomfort, aches and pains, so it was more likely for me to remember my dreams vividly.

My dreams returned to the usual pattern after delivery, and it has stayed the same, pretty much. I dream every now and again, not regular, not as vivid, but they do come true, or become the complete opposite, 99.9% of the time.

Did you have vivid dreams while pregnant? Do you dream frequently? Do your dreams come true? Lets talk, sound off in the comment section please.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.

How To Dress Up Your Huge Boobs

Sometimes, I see curvy/well endowed women struggle to dress up their amazing figure. Instead of showing off their curves, some tend to hide them in oversize, shapeless clothes. The sad part of it all is that they could start hating their beautiful figure because they don’t know how to work it. I have been there. I didn’t like my hips/bum for a while. I felt it was huge for my frame and always wanted to hide it.

Being busty does not make you look bad but rather attractive. And dressing up your well-endowed figure is not a challenge but an art which you can learn and perfect. We are wonderfully made regardless of our shape. All you need is to learn a couple of style tips and you’ll see what an amazing figure you have. A dose of self confidence also helps. As a former aspiring fashion stylist, and now a fashion blogger, I have a few style tips I have learnt along the way.

Here are tips for the busty woman:

 

Emphasize your waist
Some women try to cover up their large bustline by wearing loose-fitting clothes. The problem with this approach is that it makes your clothes hang over you like a tent making your bust bigger than it really is.
The right way to dress is to emphasize your waist. This will make you accentuate your curves. You can emphasize your waist in many ways. Choose an outfit that has a detailed midsection that defines your waist. Go for tops that fit in the waist like princess-seamed blouses, empire-waist tops or wrap styles. This will create an hourglass shape. If you do wear a loose top, put on a waist belt. That will help show your waist smaller than your bust creating that flattering figure.

This style tip only works if your waist is small in proportion to your bust.

 

Go for a low neckline
If you large boobs, stay away from tops or dresses with high necklines. High necklines make your breasts look lower and bigger than usual. So if you have anything with round necks or turtle necks, take them out of your closet!
Go for V-neck styled tops, dresses, jumpsuits and cardigans. A V-neck helps elongate your body and separates your breasts, making you look amazing. Although V-necks are great, tops with a deep plunge destroy the whole look. Square, sweetheart, and scoop necklines also work well to carry out this effect.
If you don’t have a V-neck top, a buttoned-down blouse works just as well so long as the blouse is tailored to fit below the bustline or at the waistline.

 

Adorn your neck with a long necklace
Long necklaces, which extend to the height of your belly, have an elongating effect as they draw attention away from your bust.
Take note that your necklace does not hang at the height of your nipples as that will put focus on your bust.

For the same reason, also avoid using brooches.

 

Get extra support
Being well-endowed calls for more support of your bosom. Go for a dress or top with a built-in bra or molded cups, or under wire to give your breasts extra support. Doing this gives your breasts plenty of room and prevents your breasts from looking squashed and result in spillovers. The extra support also helps make the waist look smaller in size. When it comes to bras, I like to shop for quality pieces so you will catch snooping around in Victoria’s Secret, M&S or Debenhams. I have shopped for bras in hundreds of stores worldwide, and I find these 3 the best in terms of quality, options and designs.

8 Best Dressed Celebrity Brides

With weddings everywhere this year, I have decided to write about stylish celebrity brides. Here is a list of the best dressed celebrity brides of all time.

1. Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace dress was paired with matching Alexander McQueen shoes. This is definitely one of my favourite wedding dresses.

2. Joanna Garcia: Joanna was dressed in a beautiful strapless ivory drop-waist gown and tulle veil by Monique Lhuillier.  She looked amazing in that dress and that cathedral veil is to die for. Lovely.

3. Kim Kardashian: Kim wore three dresses on her wedding day, all by Vera Wang but my favourite was the first dress. I admit, I am a sucker for the traditional ball gown. I just believe you should look like a princess on your wedding day. It is once in a lifetime anyways (or should be) so go all out.

4. Khloe Kardashian: The younger Kardashian sister; Khloe wore a sexy figure-hugging mermaid Ethel gown with lavender sash by Vera Wang. I loved this dress on her, she looked so elegant and the touch of soft powder lavender was genius.

5. Princess Diana: Whenever I think of wedding dresses, this always comes to mind, and my wedding dress of course. This has always been my idea of a perfect wedding dress right from when I was little. She looked breath taking in that dress. She was a modern day cinderalla with a 25 -foot train, 10,000 pearls and silk taffeta skirt. Her dress was designed by Elizabeth Emanuel and this gown started the ‘meringue’ trend of the ‘80s.

6. Salma Hayek: Salma looked stunning in a Balenciaga gown by Nicholas Ghesquiere. The bride, who wore her hair in a bun with a long veil, held a bouquet of orchids and stephanotis with crystals. Fab.

7. Jessica Simpson: Jessica wore a “Stephanie” gown by Vera Wang while getting married to Nick Lachey. The dress has a sweetheart neckline and an A-line fit through the waist. That is one hell of a dress, so beautiful.

8. Holly Valance: Holly wore a meringue-style wedding dress with a bodice top by Melbourne designers J’Aton Couture. She topped it up with a dramatic vintage-style tulle veil stretching out about 15 feet behind her as she took her vows. This is one of my favourite wedding dresses.
