Young Girl Wear Your Size : Tips for Dressing for your Body Type

Thursday, January 28, 2016
Far too often I see women wearing clothing that is obviously not their size. There are time when I even wonder if they have a mirror or wonder how they an't tell they are wearing the wrong size! 2016 is the year when I want women to wear clothing that suits them. Today, I will be helping my wonderful ladies how to dress for the body they have.


Be Conscious of your Body: we've all seen those movies where a woman either has hopes of losing or gaining weight and wears the next size up or down. Ladies ! If you pick something to wear and it feels a bit tight or loose ... it's not your size. There is a big difference between fitted and tight. "Clothes that are tight an make you look bigger " - Clinton Kelly

Proportions matter: Apart from having the perfect fit ... another thing you need to pay attention is proportion. Remember the rule which dictates that you shouldn't show too much skin at once? It' s something like that. I'm 5 ft and a little over 100 pounds and If I was to put on a dress in my size with huge abstract prints , oversize bag and chunky jewelry ; not only would I look like I'm drowning , but I would look bigger. One rule of thumb is to wear one thing at a time if you are not sure.


Know Your Body Parts: Sooo .. this is in the line of  "being conscious of your body" but it's a bit more specific. Let's take for example a deep plunging dress; this would look totally different on somebody who has large breasts from a person who has small breasts. Sure with all the "additives" you can fake certain areas that are lacking , but be sure to consider the type of clothing you wear and if it fits your body part.

Age Appropriateness: There are some women who are either trying to re-live their youth or in some deep identity crisis. If you are over the age of 39 , have a number of kids and voted more than one decade ... your dress or skirt should not be over your knee! It doesn't matter how great you look and if you aged as gracefully as Christy Brinkley ... It's simply about self respect and also taking into consideration those around you. Don't get me wrong .. If you feel sexy one day and want to put on a nice dress or skirt that is a bit shorter than usual by all means go ahead. The issues arises when you do it daily until it becomes your style.

Ladies , I want to hear the things that work for your body type

How to Make Friends ONLINE

Wednesday, January 27, 2016
Back in the day it was all about "How to Win Friends and Influence People". However , with the rise and tremendous growth of Social Media, one now has to know how to make friends Online in order to be successful in all aspects of life! Here are a few tips I came up with on how to make friends Online.


Know your purpose: What is the main reason you want to make friends with people online? Do you have a Business? Are you a Blogger? There has to be some reason or purpose you actively want to make friends with people online.

Add Only "Like" Minded People: Pun definitely intended #getit . Try to reach out to people who are in a similar Industry like yourself. In the beginning of my Blogging Career .. I was just adding random people to make up numbers. None of these people had an interest in Blogging and were not beneficial to me. I found that when I added people of similar interest we were able to engage in more meaningful conversation and we are able to trade ides and so on.

Don't be a Creeper : #lawdness! Guys , when you add people online do not and I repeat DO NOT STALK them! You can be supportive by liking their pictures and so on , but it gets really crazy when you like all their pictures and always seems to be Online and always show up in random places when they are Offline. Cue Psycho theme music here.


Be Interactive: Now, the kind of interaction I'm talking about is the normal one. Not like above; there is where you basically return the favor to whatever they do Online. If they like your pictures or leave do the same for them. If they message you every now and again do the same. When you do this you will find that you will not only make friends but form a small community.


What are some ways you make friends Online?

What is Derma Rolling

Tuesday, January 26, 2016
Hey Glow Getters!


It's another wonderful day where I am and if you are not having a wonderful day #shakeitoff and think back to something that makes you happy. As you can tell by the topic above , we will be talking about Derma Rolling Today! This post is to inform you about this rather interesting way to get rid of Acne.

Derma Rolling has to do with using a small scary looking device that has tiny needles to roll sections of your face to remove various skin issues. I'm sure based on the picture below , you must be thinking 2 things : This is a scary looking device and it must hurt really badly. Read on for more info about this trend.



The process by which you apply the Derma Roller to the face is called Micro Needling. It is as the name suggests applying tiny needles to your face. It is believed that our skin is self healing and by applying the needles to the surface of acne , it will make a tiny incision ( you won't see it ) which will re-open the acne scar and it will begin to heal from inside out within a month or less! Imagine struggling with Acne all your life , then coming across this life altering process to basically renew skin.. I bet you would want to try it. The Derma Rollers come in a variety of sizes which is great for a variety of skin types , level of acne and user preference. The Rollers are sold in Kits or Singles Online and often come with Vitamin C ( for brightening the Skin and Renewal ) and even a numb cream.

This new way to get rid of acne is relatively inexpensive ( depending on the Brand you purchase ) and will definitely have far reaching effects on your skin. Now that you know about this process .. is this something you would try? Be sure to consult a dermatologist or skin professional before trying this trend.

The Guide to Defining YOUR Personal Style

Monday, January 25, 2016
Greetings Glowgetters!


We are often influenced by what we see on T.V , Social Media and Magazines. With that being said , it is quite evident that women are not quite sure how to find their personal style. According to WiseGeek.com Personal Style can be defined as "A person's personal style is roughly equivalent to his or her fashion sense. Some people are highly conscious of their style, which may be detailed and planned out, including certain brands, patterns, and designers  ". I've teamed up with a few Boutique owners as it relates to finding YOUR personal style.

Add some Personality: Style has to do with the way you incorporate your personality into the way you dress. We are all different as individuals and that is the way you should create a style that is unique to you. If you are more into "Trends" , clothing that last for periods of time then your style will reflect that.


Give it a Name: Now that you kinda have an idea of what your style is .. give it a name! Your style might fall into categories like Classic , Timeless , Bohemian or even sexy. Think of your favorite celebrity or even Blogger and think of what their style is and give yours a similar name based on the category it falls in.

The Signature Piece: Every style has a signature piece! What is that you might ask? It is that one thing you wear with every outfit .. the thing that people use to identify you with. Think Anna Wintor and her Sunglasses or even her signature Bob , Sometimes the signature piece is not something that is tangible.




Your Strengths: What is the one thing or things people always compliment you on when you wear it? is it the Jeans you found at a Thrift Shop that is a particular fit or length? Maybe its a specific color. Jamaican Designer and Fashion Mogul Keneea Linton-George always wear Red and is somehow known for that color.

Include Everything Else: Apart from having amazing clothing and a killer style... you also have to think about everything else! You can't be well dressed and then have messy hair ( unless that's your thing ) or just everything else being awry. Try to build a complete package.

Get Your Smile Camera Ready with Crest White Strips

Friday, January 22, 2016

When it comes to Bridal Beauty , teeth whitening is one of the biggest priorities on a wedding checklist. The same can be said about the "Bridal Party" checklist ; Bridal Dresses have come a long way from hideous to chic. If you will be attending a wedding soon and have been casted as a Bridesmaid , you can standout with whiter teeth with  Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips.
The Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips can whiten teeth as well as a $500 laser treatment in as little as two (2) weeks.

Being a Bridesmaid means tons of pictures and smiling on cue! Nobody wants to be remembered as the girl with the "dingy yellow teeth! I was able to try this amazing product for myself for an upcoming Wedding and you can see my before and after results below.  I received the product January 12, 2016 and today makes it 2 weeks. For best results , I would recommend following the directions step by step for best results.

Here's how:

- Do NOT Brush teeth immediately before applying white strips.
- Tear open one pouch and remove the thin plastic carrier on which the strips have been placed
* The side that faces the plastic is the whitening has the tooth whitener and is to be placed against  the surface of your teeth
-  Do not peel a strip off until you are ready to use it
- Align the strips so they fit your gum-line
* Be sure to cover as many of your front teeth as possible
- Once its positioned , press the white strips in place. Repeat the process with your lower/upper teeth or whatever you started with first.
- Wash your hands!

Camera Ready with my "New Smile"

I especially liked how each strip molded to the shape of my teeth and that it had a no "slip grip". I was able to talk and drink water while whitening my teeth! If you are looking for an inexpensive ( ($64.99 ) way to whiten your teeth at home , you should definitely try the Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips . The strips are available at Drugstores , Mass Retailers and Online nationwide.

I challenge you to get whiter teeth in just 2 weeks with the Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips.

Change your Thoughts Change your Life

Thursday, January 21, 2016
Hey Guys!


If you are an avid reader of this Blog , you might have realized our tone has changed a bit. I am a firm believer of growth and not remaining in the same spot all the time . With that being said , for this entire month the focus is on Self Growth or as we will be calling it "The Glow Up". I have decided to step out of my comfort zone to live the life I dream about.


People always think that happiness is all about things and people but I've realized it's all about you. I often wonder how is it that people who gave waaaay less than me seem to live the best life possible. The difference between them and me is that they know how to make use of the things they have to their advantage, while the rest of us pay attention to things we don't have which leads to stress and depression.


For this year , we want you to join us to live your best life by changing your thoughts. Instead of saying " I don't have " or "I can't" use more positive words like "I'm thankful for " and "I can ". It's gonna be hard just starting out especially with the people around you who would like to see you in the same place ( like them ) but we are in this together.

To be a part of the journey use the hashtag #theglowupplan and tell us one thing you've accomplished so far so that we can shout you out.

Tips for starting an Online Business ( Successfully )

Tuesday, January 19, 2016
Gone are the days when people would have to struggle to start a Business. 2015 was the boom of the Online Business which saw many young professionals earning a substantial income online ( while they sleep ). Here are a few ways you can successfully start your Online Business and generate an Income.


Product vs Service: This all depends on what you are more passionate about and want to offer your potential clients. I find that Product based businesses do better than services just because of consumer needs. No matter how broke a person is .. they will still need that Necklace, Clothing or whatever it is. If you decide on offering services , be sure to do some research and offer competitive rates.

 Looks matter ... a lot: Not physical appearance in this case but the look of your Business. You will need something visual like a website or fan-page to display some of your best work. Its great if you could ask your customers to provide feedback.

 #Goals: I know you are thinking "duh" I went into business because I have goals. As it relates to Online Businesses , there are people are go into it "just because" or they heard they can make a lot of money right away. If this is your goal , you still need to set a plan to figure out how best it can be executed.



Start Now: As people, we make excuses about everything in life! I don't have any money , I don't have enough time or just an excuse. Once you have something fresh in your mind .. start right away! I'm not telling you to quit your day job right away. But you need to get the wheels in motion and start making some moves.

Be efficient: An Online Business is a lot different from an Offline Business in that it offers you flexibility. If you are not tech savvy , there are really simple websites that you can set up which will still give you all the things you are looking for and more. If it means opening earlier and closing later then do it! My Digital Marketing Boutique is open 24 hours per day so that I can accommodate my clients all over the world.

5 Fashion Hacks for 2016

Monday, January 18, 2016
I don't know about anybody else but I'm a Hack Girl. I love Hacks and how simple things we've overlooked can be used to make our lives easier. 2016 is the year of #goals and #glowup and what better time to introduce fun , new Fashion Hacks.



Keep Sweat Marks at Bay: This is an unconventional "OH MY GOD" Method ..but to do this you will need a pantyliner. You heard that right ... put a thin pantyliner on the inside of your blouse at the armpit area to absorb sweat.

Get Rid of Deodorant Scuff: We all hate deodorant scuff especially on black clothing. To get rid of those "white marks" all you need is a sheet of Baby Wipes which you will rub gently on the area.

Keep a Zipper Up: We all have that one perfect pair of Jeans where the Zipper never seem to stay up. There are 2 fixes to that .. 1) take small pin and place it below the zipper ( on the inside so the head is hidden ) 2) Get the circle wiry part of a key ring attach it to the Zipper then when you zip up .. place it on the button and it will stay in place.


Softening a Stiff Collar: There is that one pesky shirt that has a collar as stiff as Cardboard .. one simple fix is to use your flat iron to keep it softer and in place.


Fix an Unraveling Button: Imagine putting on your favorite shirt then only to see the button unraveling. If only there was a quick and easy way to keep the button in place without sewing! All you need is clear Nail Polish which you will apply to the thread .

What did you think of these Hacks?

Health/Fitness Trends to try in 2016

Friday, January 15, 2016
As with any new year comes the "I need to go to the gym and quit after a week "resolution. 2016 is no exception , this year its all about Health Trends , if you are one of those band wagon types who like to jump on trends , you will love our Health/Fitness Trends for 2016.



Health Technology: We live in the Digital Age and of course there will be all kinds of fitness gadgets to keep us on our health game.  There are discrete devices that look like a bracelet that track your every movement including even sleep. If you are not 100% committed to this "Fitness Thing " then you can invest in one of these devices that will track your daily activity  heart rate , cholesterol and even stress.

CrossFit: This trend has not hit Jamaica just yet ( maybe it has ) but its more popular in North America. This involves strength and condition training .. basically all about using your brain to push yourself to the limit by using a series of  exercises or activities. If you are an adrenaline junkie .. you will love this.Visit the CrossFit website to learn more.

Instant Thigh Gap: This might not be a health thing but its a trend and yes its a thing. I saw it on E! and everything! The Thigh Gap was made popular by Beyonce ( real or Photoshop ) in 2015 where she basically had a shapely gap between her legs. This is for ladies who are looking to trim their legs in only a few minutes by using a special gel and wrap after which a Thigh Gap will magically appear :-) This is only a temporary fix.


HIIT : Highly Intensive Interval Training .. think back to the 90's when aerobics was all the rage. Imagine if Aerobics went on steroids and that is exactly what HIIT is ( see what I did there? ) It involves suicide drills , running stairs , power drills and so much more. This is definitively not for the faint of heart as all the exercises are intense.


Pole Workout: Now you too can have killer upper body strength and also learn a few new tricks. This type of workout became popular when one person realized that getting on a pole took a lot of work and upper body strength. The great thing about this workout is there is no set workout age limit.

Please consult a physician or fitness professional before you participate in any form of exercise. Remember exercise not only makes us look good on the outside .. it makes us feel great on the inside as well.
