Give Yourself A Makeover

Are you in your late twenties or early thirties? Have the last few years if stressful work, late nights and catching up on student debts taken its toll on you? Perhaps your body isn’t in as great shape. While there isn’t an ideal shape or size that you need to be, feeling good and healthy are important as they can affect your happiness and health. Here are some tips on how you could give yourself a makeover that will give you a new lease on life!

Get healthy
Start by getting healthy. If you feel healthy then you are likely to feel better about your life and have a more positive outlook. Start by evaluating your diet. Look at all the unhealthy food choices you are making and come up with a plan to eat healthy foods. For instance, if you work late nights and are very busy during the day you may be eating a lot of take out and fast food. Your lunches, rather than being well balanced meals may be a sandwich from a deli or a bag of crisps and a soda – neither of which are good for you. In order to counter the busy week, prep your meals over the weekend. You can prep vegetables and fruits that you can box individually so that you simply grab a box to go. You can cook up a big batch of plain brown rice so that you can toss in serving with your salad or else bake some chicken to go with. The chicken can be shredded in for a salad or sandwich for two more lunches.

Change your look
Stress and late nights can affect your look. Often stress causes hair loss, in which case you may want to look into hair replacement treatments. Do your research thoroughly before committing to a dermatologist Melbourne hair loss treatment as some can involve chemicals that are harmful to your body. You could also start getting more sleep or getting to bed at a reasonable hour. This will get rid of the bags under your eyes and if you are well rested this will reflect itself in your appearance.

Get some exercise
Exercise is great for your body! You can start out by joining a gym or starting an exercise class to get in your daily work out. Or start small. Walk a couple of blocks a day and stretch your muscles. Gradually increase the distance you walk and work your way up to starting to jog and then run. The trick is not to overdo it, because that is when you over tire yourself and quit.

Tips On How To Give A New Twist To The Gifts Tested By Time

Has it been a while since you did something special for the lady love of your life? Are you looking for out of the box, extra special ideas for gifts? Or are you trying to figure out how to make the regular gifts appear a little more special than usual?

If the answer is yes to any or all of the above questions, then you’ve come to the right place; coz we have the answers to your questions.

We’ve put together a few oh-so-familiar gifts, and our particular twist in them to make it a little extra special.

Keep reading if we’ve got your attention…!

The oldest gift.

Flowers; probably a gift idea that’s as old as mankind. And why not, when flowers are known to save some of the biggest blunders that happen in relationships? In fact, it should be known as the wonder gift! But if you are thinking of flowers as a gift, then remember that flowers are greatly appreciated when they are least expected. And try not to get her flowers every birthday please (this makes women think you lack imagination!).

Our twist: get her flower plants instead of cut flowers. It’s something that’ll grow and last longer, reminding her of your sweet gesture. This also subtly signifies that you plan on sticking around longer.

Rock and gold and bling.

True, not all jewellery has rock or gold or bling. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t already proved to be a brilliant gift. This of course depends on what type of jewellery you buy, and how long your relationship has lasted,

Our twist: go for something unexpected, like body jewellery. Treat her for a high quality lip piercing or a nose ring.

If you feel she’d appreciate something more adventurous than lip piercing jewellery, then think about a stunning collection of jewelries. Be daring, but only if she approves!

Rich and sweet and irresistible.

We’re talking about chocolates of course! Just like flowers and jewellery, chocolates too are an age old choice and have proven time and time again their worth. It’s an ideal “pick me up” gift. Just make sure not to skimp on the quality here though.
Our twist: try to find those delicious and sinful chocolates filled with liquor. It’s definitely a luxury, and she will definitely approve. Just make sure that she has no problem with alcohol.

Naughty with satin and lace.

Admit it, buying your girlfriend or wife lingerie is a gift for yourself as much as it is for her. This one here though, could be either hit or miss. This depends largely on your girlfriend, and how you present your gift. Remember that it’s she who has to wear it, so it’s best to take her along than to surprise her with this gift.

Our twist: encourage her to buy something that is more for comfort and support that it is for sexiness. This will make her feel appreciated, for sure.

Above all, it’s the time you spend for her, and on her will be what she notices and appreciates the most.
