In innovative art and fashion, there’s value in negative space.
Sometimes what makes a dress is what’s not actually there. When you want to step it up a notch in the dress department, instead of going for a shorter hem or lower neckline, look for a frock with clever cutouts. Subtly sexy and tastefully chic, a cutout dress will add an alluring air to your look without the annoyance of adjusting it every five minutes. See a handful of our favorite cutout styles for day and night below, from an a-line denim dress to a black lacy slip.
Is it late at night? Try to go to sleep. If it’s
stressful try some white noise or audiobook or something, or just lay down but
don’t turn off the lights. If it’s
not working, keep going with the list and try again later
cold? If yes, put on a sweater, or some socks, or a tuque
and gloves if necessary
When was the last time you
ate? If it was more than three
hours ago, go find something to eat

Have you taken your
Have you done any bit of
exercise today? If not, do something, even if it’s small. Choose a short workout from
Darebee or take dog for a walk
Have you showered in the
last two days? Take a shower (or a bath if that feels right). If, once you’re in
exfoliating sounds like a good idea, do that. If, once you’re out, moisturizing
sounds like a good idea, do that.
If it’s daytime, are you
dressed? Put some comfy or otherwise
feel-good clothes on
Do you have any homework or similar pressing work to do? Spend five minutes working on that. Maybe you’ll get into the flow and do more, but if not, no biggie
If you have pets, have you cared for them today? Check and make sure their spaces are clean and they have food and water. Pet and play with them

Is your living space clean?
Spend five minutes tidying
or cleaning something
Have you done anything
creative today? Try that for five minutes
Have you talked to anyone
today? Even if no one’s around
physically, send a text to a friend at least
Have you gone outside
today? If it’s light out and/or
not too cold, go and spend a few minutes outside

Rereading Harry Potter now and wondering why the first movie didn’t, like the book, start with a long sequence in which Vernon Dursley goes about his day looking at Things He Doesn’t Understand, including strangely dressed people, Daytime Owls, and Suspicious Cats, and scowling at them
A LOT of you beauties ask me what to wear on a POT date in the summer, so I actually reached out to my SD and asked him what he likes that I’ve worn this summer. So here we go:
1.For Casual (lunches, coffee dates, meet and greets)
I always get criticized for looking too “business like” on dates (I blame this on me having lived in DC for too long), but since you’re young and fun I highly recommend you play that up. Bright colors, show some leg (but not too much) (; and it’ll be easy for him to spot you that first time you meet.
2. Daytime dates
I recommend dressing youthful but fashion forward ( I HOPE you’re going somewhere chic) show off your edgier side with a constructed outfit but natural free flowing hair and a classic pair of sun glasses. Especially in a city you will blend in, yet your gorgeous look will make you stand out and your POT won’t be able to keep his eyes (or hands off of you). At the same time though, ALWAYS keep it classy (:
3. Nigh time dates
My personal favorite, this is where you can really show off your sexy side (if you choose to). My daddy LOVES when I wear white in the summer (I have an olive complexion) and a jumpsuit will FOR SURE show off your body. Again, it’s classic but sexy. The white hue will make you stand out, but with natural makeup and flowy hair you’ll look like a goddess
With multiple films coming out this year, including Blackhat and Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a skill for slick style, it’s safe to say that Chris Hemsworth is on a roll. One of his latest looks says it all. Spotted in New York City this month, he wore a subtle blue suit with a gray shirt, dress shoes and a classic pair of aviators, proving that great style stems from keeping it simple. Take a cue from Chris and keep in mind that a more casual suit can easily be worn from day to night with the simple swap of a shirt. Copy this look with our similar items below for the next time you want to look extra clean cut.
