Remedy Think before you buy.

Do you really need it or is it just impulse buying? Do you need so much of the same product? Is it a need or just a habitual want?

Since its cheap lets hoard what we do not need!

My good friend Suweeni is a wonderful person. She is also a great plastic collector. Plastic buckets, ladies, spoons, cups, mugs, spatulas and bottles adorn her over loaded pantry. "Mighty come handy anay, someday.." is her excuse for buying plastic from many a way side canvass shops that litter our towns today. Colourfulplastic trays, flowery plates and boxes in a hue of colours and many a shape sit in locked up wooden cabinets. these are hardly used. Money spent on these could probably have acquired her a new wardrobe!.

Simple budgeting and self deiscipline.

Write down all you have to do with in the month, on the first of every month. Consult your family. Ask your children what their needs are. If there is a hyper active Mis Tenn, check with her. Will she need any shampoo, get, hair oil, some small tit-bits of make up ? Accomodate what you can and explain why you need to push something to the nest month. Look at your social calendar. Any events that require gifts? Traveling? Entertaining? Bills to pay? Make a list and then, manage! Easy for a monthly income earner? No way - but a great juggling act; but Budgeting does help. Shele the creadit card and use your direct debit card. You will have a track of how much you spend and easily manage within budget.

Etiquette-Dressing tips

If you are a quest who will be attending an upcoming wedding. Keep in mind that the attire should be formal. Men should wear suits and women should wear cocktail dresses. The only exception is if the invitation indicates otherwise. As for accessories, women should carry a small handling rather than a purse.
Although not commonly thought of as proper wedding attire, it is acceptable to wear black providing it is accompained by accessories with colour. This may include a pin, scarf of blazer.

As wedding quests, shoe comfort is essential. Depending on the location of the ceremony. There may be a lot of walking involved. A country or beach wedding, for instance, may require a short stroll to the ceremony spot. Men will commonly wear dress shoes, but for women it is best to choose a show that you will be able to walk or dance in comfortably. If you will be walking through grass, which is often the case of an outdoor or country wedding, consider avoiding an open-toe design.

For those who are still in doubt and are concerned about upholding the proper wedding attire etiquette, a quick telephone call to the bride or groom will resolve any question that you may have regarding the style of the ceremony.
So find yourself a style that says the right things about you and show the world what you're made of!

Yet another rule that many men have forgotten or simply ignored. A cap-especially a sports cap-- is, was and always shall be intended for spoting activities,. Flipping it backwards and pretending to support your local team any day of the week before the big game is, dare we say, too pedestrian for even a casual office environment, If ou think you need to wear a hat to keep warm for that commute, try more stylish headgear that you remove as you enter the building. The boss will notice in more ways than one. For cool spring wearther, think about this military-inspired hat from Banana Republic. It's lightweight and you can stuff it in your new briefcase until you need it for the journey home.

Saturday, March 22, 2008


This is a bad idea all around. No one wants to see your hairy man legs darting from cubicle to cubicle. And no, half-day Friduys in July, before you head out for the weekend, are not exempt and do not make it OK. Break this rule and the powers that be will take unfavoble notice of your nakeness no matter what the employment laws might say. If you feel too warm in cotton or topical weight, wool trousers, try a linen pant like this pair from Michael Kors.

Company Golf Shirt

Unless you're directed to wear it, the company golf shirt stays at the clubhouse instead, wear a long-sleeve, button-down shirt--yes, even in the summer. The mere fact that you have sleeves means you outrank anyone is a polo shirt. Once again, so-called casual Friday aren't exempt from this rule. Do not wear your golf cloths to work, What's funny out on the links is rarely funny in the office. Thre is a time and place for those Rodney Dangerfield Caddyshack-inspired go-to-hell pants and matching polyester shirt, but the office is neither. If you must wear golf-inspired attire, try a classic-cut, long-sleeve shirt with a delicate patters intead.

Monday, March 17, 2008


While no one disputes that cargos are great for the weekend, they look too casual and do not inspire confidence in your superiors or clients while you're at work. You're nor working at a coffee shop between classes, pal. You're working in an office, which means that if you've got stuff to carry you need a briefcase and not pockets hanging down around you ankles. Don't try and argue that they're practical-- so are backpacks and you're not bringing one of those to work, are you?

Text -Ts

T-shirts with text across the front or back are what you wear when you pick uo your last paycheck. Until that day comes, however, have some dignity and wear a shirt suitable for casual business encounters. And last night's concert souvenir is an office wear no-no as well. If a short-sleevs shirt is appropriate, then stay away from all-out sports wear as well and find something with a bit of class such as this polo-inspired shirt from Kenneth Cole.

Friday, March 14, 2008


Unless you get a pedicure regularly, your feet probably look much better clad in leather shoes than exposed for all the world to see. Why then must we address flip-flops as an office wear no-no? Because casual Friday became casual Monday-through-Friday, some think they're living in a Corona commercial and keep showing up for work with becteria factories strapped to their feet.

Spring break may be a state of mind for you after your school days have ended, but we'll leave that for your therapist to resolve. What you need to understand first is that men wear socks and leather shoes to work. For ultimate comfort and versatility find a pair of leather loafers in a British tan-- they're just as comfortable as flip-flops and a lot less childish and underdressed.

Everybody wants to be beautiful! people take a lot of trouble to be beautiful. March money and time is spent in order to be beautiful. Beauty has many aspects. How do we define what is most beautiful? Some think that beauty is the colour of one's skin; others think beauty is make-up. Yet others believe it is based on the cloths one wears.

What they fail to understand is that physical beauty is not permanent. It has the tendency to change with time. Such beauty is only skin deep! Real beauty is much more than that. It is everlasting and a person possesing such beauty would shine whereever he or she maybe. Truth is beautiful. Honesty is beautyful. Virtune in all its forms is beautiful. A very good person maybe physically not beatiful to look at, sick, old or even blind, but still she or he is beautiful inside.

Sometimes people use jewellery such as rings, bangles, earrings, nose rings and so on to make themseleves beautiful. In addition they use cosmetics such as lipstick also creams and hair dyes to look beautiful. Many end up looking more like plastic models.
Natural beauty: spiritual beauty and simplicity surpass what is artificial. Let us look for higher, deeper and greater beauty than superficial beauty.

How to Make her miss you?

Some men believe that women gravitate toward men who are aggressive when it comes to putting their bid in. This is not always the case. Most women like a man who can control his emotions, who has developed a sense of knowing when and how to be aggressive and who has learned when to ease off the gas and cruise in for the catch. There is a fine line between obsessive and aggressive.

Understand that in the early stages of dating, a woman is providing you with the opportunity to make a great impression. Take advantage of this time frame. One of the tricks to dating is to keep a woman interested enough to see that you are not in desperate need of her attention. The alluring affect of the honeymoon stage that’s often shared between couples can be quite intoxicating. Try your best to show your tempo. Take the reigns and allow a pace to emerge that will always have her coming back for more.

Make her miss you. Offering a woman every bit and piece of you will potentially extinguish her interest in a shorter period of time than if she were fed bread crumbs along the way. Limiting your availability at the onset will also raise your value in her eyes, as it indicates that you have a sense of independence. The elements of surprise and mystery work well in keeping her intrigued. Making her seem like an enhancement to your life by “taking tome out of your busy schedule” to spend with her will make her feel special.

Here are some helpful tips that will make her miss you and keep her coming back for more.

Get a life – if you have an overabundance of free tome on your hands, it is highly suggested that you fill up that void with hobbies and activities. This will help in keeping your temptation to call or hang out with her to a minimum. Remember, having other interest outside of her gives the impression that you are ok with “me” time. Codependence in the beginning stages of a relationship is the No.1 deterrent in the dating rule book, and this will definitely not make her miss you.

Make her wonder if you’re thinking of her – when you take a woman out on a date, other than calling to make sure she made it home safely, do not call her to discuss the date in detail the following day. Let her bask in the romance and give her time to imaging what your next interaction will entail. Calling her two or three days later is fine, as it lets her know that you’re thinking of her. Also, let some time pass before you ask her out on the next date. Buffering the time between contacts with her is a major step in making her miss you.

Limit your telephone interaction – the mature approach to keeping a woman interested is to limit your availability. Refrain from answering all of her calls, and when she leaves a message that isn’t urgent, allow a few hours to pass before you return her call (the same applies for text messages). But be sure to always remain courteous and return the call at some point. Be mindful not to cross the fine line between stimulating her interest and seeming uninterested if you are not interested, you can’t make her miss you.

Limit the time you spend with her – the importance of pacing yourself cannot be overstressed, as this will allow the romance to evolve naturally. The best way to do this is to put you on a two-to-three month schedule. During the first two or three months of your interaction, only meet with her during the week for small outings, such as dinner, a movie or an art showing. Keep it sweet and simple; show just enough to entice her and to exhibit your creativity. Weekends are reserved for intimate exchanges between couples. In the meantime, give the impression that you have a weekend life and use the weekdays as the opportunity to make her miss you and desire inclusive in your weekends.

First date lingering – shifting and shuffling your feet waiting for an invite into her home at the end of a date is not recommended. It is not necessary to extend an evening longer than it should be at this point in your interaction. If you do, you run the risk of getting caught up in the honeymoon stage. Politely walk her to her door, and then leave promptly. This brings closure to the moment, and also gives her room to miss you.

Don’t accept all her invitations – decline a few her invitations, specifically those that include groups of friends. Remember, having a social calendar gives the impression that she will not become your only source of entertainment in the event that you end up in a relationship with her.

All of these tips are keys in making a woman miss you or having her bask in the waves of fluttering butterflies and anticipation for the next time she sees you, and these tips truly work wonders during the initial stages of getting to know a woman. Don’t forget that as the relationship develops, it is essential to have a life of your own. Space, which can often be confused with disconnection, allows a woman to be her, by herself, which will benefit you in the long run. Who knows, it may even expand the lifetime of your relationship with her.

Power Dressing, What are the clues?

Dressing for work is no longer just any outfit. Dressing for your career is as important as dressing for a wedding or a party. You must make sure you are dressed in a manner that represents your job and your position. For and example, in the West, it is customary for most career women to wear suits to work. Suits are smart, functional and give a sense of professionalism.
In Sri Lanka, the sari will always be the elegant winner in the boardroom. However, sari is not always practical and functional some women. The banking sector still prefers the sari-on the whole, you see the government sector and certain private business establishment.

Wednesday, February 6, 2008

Sari Selection

Have an unspoken uniform in the sari. Lankan women will always look their best in sari but for most others, a suit is a more practical alternative. Morning colours are the best for work be it a sari or a suit. Pastel hades, white, greys and soft blues work bst against any skin tone. Dainty patterns and oft checks are also good for the day.

Tuesday, February 5, 2008

Pants are smart

If you are working in a creative area of work such as publishing and advertising, you maybe permitted to go for older shapes and colours - while pant sits are worn by some Lankan career women, ot many would resort to wearing pants to work, especially in larger commercial establishments. Pants are smart and when combined as a suit, can be an attractive option to skirt and top.

Jeans and bright colours can work with accessories such as scarves and head bands in a creative setting. Keep your corporate culure in mind, whatever you wear. Some companies will encourage casual wear on Friday and Saturday. Others will have their own, unspoken rules on what is right and what ins't. You can observe others or inquire from your co-workers on such condiions. You can always find your own personal style, no matter what the ground rules are.

Monday, February 4, 2008

Buying Quality Office wear

Quality office wear is no longer a difficult thing - shops and major shopping complexes store exciting office wear options and you can find some workable colours too.

There are certain instances when you may have to attend evening functions in daywear cloths, after work. You can always highlight your suit or ensemble at such times with an added scarf, a necklace or simply by putting your hair up.

Sunday, February 3, 2008

Best colours Selection

Always invest in solid colours-a black skirt is a must and so is the classic white shirt. Go for colours such as steel grey and browns. They work well in the artificial light inside offices.
Select smart cuts with minimum fuss- details are not relevant to a working environment - just a classic cut and a smart no - fuss appearance will do. Select sensible shoes with manageable heels; you are not on parade, you are working. You can select practical optons and still look good enough to turn heads in the board room.

To meet his parents

To meet his parents, Do wear the look above or, if you're going to a fancy restaurant, a dres. But don't overglam it-you don't want them to take one look at you and think, high maintenance!

Friday, February 1, 2008

Pretty selection

Not sure exactly how dressy or casual your date will be? Do opt for a pair of nottorn-up darker jeans with a tank or cami, a fitted jacket and a pair of heels. It's the one look that can go pretty much anywhere.

If yu're a rock n roll girl

Do be true to your own style, epecially on a first date. If you're a rock 'n' roll girl, let him see that. Just keep in mind that if you go too costumey, he'll notice your outfil more than you.

Wednesday, January 30, 2008


About that LBD

Don't wear all black; it's kind of boring. Add sexy red shoes or a denim jacket.

Do go for soft, touchble hair. A too-stiff style will remin him of his grandma's perfect "set". Don't overload on anything beauty-related, especially sticky lip gloss or heavy fragrance.

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Best choices

Don't use a blind date as a test run for something you just bought and haven't worn yet. Do wear something that you know you feel grat in, like your little black dress-dates are no fun if you specnd the whole night fidgeting.

Saturday, January 26, 2008

Do try some color;

Don't go overboard with girly clothes. He wants to go out with women, not Lolita. Do try some color, guys respond to it. Two goofproof choices are blue (men are conditioned to like it from the time they're little boys) and red, which is sexy. Don'y care him with head-to-toe color. It's too mumsy and attention grabbing.

Friday, January 25, 2008

Think about this


Do remember to leave a bit to the imagination: Wear just one sexy piece it's like winking at him and saying, "You might stand a chance, but you're not guaranteed!"

Don't wear your trendiest new outfil for a date. Guys don't get super trendy, they just think it's weird. This is about romance, not impressing your girlfriends.

Evening dance

If dancing is part of the evening, Do find a sexy shoe that you can move in, with a bit of a platform or a kitten heel. But I say if you can't run in them. Don't try to dance in them.

If you're always in jeans

Do make an effort not to dress like you do every day. If you're always in jeans, put on a skirt-or vice versa. For after work, surprise him by wearing something sexy with your suit.

Date Dressing Dos & Don'ts

Do think about what I call tabletop dressing if you're going out to dinner. He's going to be seeing you mostly from the waist up, so you want a fabulous neckline, gret earrings, a color that's gorgeous next to your face. Then keep it simple below the waist.

Date Dressing

Dressing on a date is very important. This is more important for women, because dress is one of the main thing that shows or reflects their personality. Most of the time men dressing is more likely the same, and it is not too difficult thing to choose from.

But for a women dressing mean not only the dress. It is all about fashion, she needs to think about dress as well as make-ups, frangrance, hair style, and shoes, etc.

This blog is all about date dressing and this covers all the areas that a women needs to think when she is going out for a date.
