3 Tips to Black Friday Shopping

clomid male

 Black friday shopping can be overwhelming and somewhat stressful .  But when planned properly it can be a lot of fun and you may gain a few new friends along the way.   Here are 3 tips to having a successful black friday:


1. Make a List


The deals are just too good to pass up.  Make a shopping list and stick to it.  Your newspaper will be your number one source to local Black Friday savings. While you are at it be sure to organize your day to maximize  your time and savings.   Some items you may need to stand in line in the wee hours of the morning and some you may able to take your chances on an pick-up later in the day.  Be sure to take the adds with you to confirm all discounts.



2. Be comfortable and have fun


Be mentally prepared for large crowds and long lines.  In between shopping and waiting in endless checkout lines, you want to make sure  you keep your energy levels up.  A healthy snack provides energy (trail mix,  energy bar,nuts etc).  Don’t forget to stay hydrated with bottled water   Watch the weather and dress according to climate conditions in your area.  You may need to stand in lines outside.  Also, wear comfortable shoes.  There is nothing like screaming feet!  Since you are there, you may as well socialize with those around you in the line. It may be a good idea to build a comradely. You never know when you may need to step out of line to use to the restroom. It may be even more fun to bring a friend or family member.


3. Hire a shopper or shop online

A personal shopper can save you time, money  and stress. A good personal shopper is like a walking-talking encyclopedia on  all things unique, fashionable and luxurious.  They have inside knowledge on luxury  brands, keep abreast of whats fresh and current.   A personal shopper may be hired to offer their services in shopping  for shopping for gifts, gourmet food, furniture, jewelry, toys and just about  anything else that a client may need.  You can hire someone else to do it for you or if you have the time and the internet you can shop online from home.


Be sure to live stress free this  holiday season! Tracey

How to Dress the Inverted Triangle Body Shape

How to Dress the Inverted Triangle Body Shape


The inverted triangle tends to be the most athletic looking among the different body shapes.   Shoulders are wider than your hips, by a good couple of inches.   Your hips look straight given that your shoulders are broad and you have little to no waist definition.

The goal of dressing the inverted triangle body shape is to create the illusion of a hour glass figure by balancing out the wide top, minimising your shoulders and back, enhance your hips and highlight your legs.


Play down the top:

Tops should draw attention downward away from the shoulders.

V neck, wrap style and vertical lines in the bodice all draw attention downward.

Jackets should be narrow at the shoulders and widest at the hips.

Wear Tailored shirts and jackets.

Wear dark colored tops.

Vertical lines created with accessories will draw the attention downward

Monochromatic colors in draped styles will lengthen the body.


Play up the bottom:


Wear a belt, it will accent your waist                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Choose bottoms that enhance and flatter your lower body.

Strong visual details below the waist will draw the attention downward.

Wear pants with pockets and embellishment.

Wear wide leg or boot cut pants.

Wear a full or A-line skirt.

Wear horizontal lines on the bottom half.

Add volume with thicker fabrics on the bottom with fabrics like knit, wool or tweed.

Show off those great legs with a great pair of pumps.

Stay away from shoes with straps, they will shorten your legs.

Five Steps to Making a Great First Impression!


How do you want to be perceived by others?  Does  making a great  first impression affect your job,  goals, relationships  or your lifestyle? It only takes 3 seconds before they have sized you up and have formed an impression about you. It doesn’t seem fair, but unfortunately it happens everyday.

In very little time, the other person has formed an opinion about you based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, smile , and how you are dressed.

Five Steps to Making a Great First Impression:

1. Dress Appropriately

Dress appropriately. Of course physical appearance does matter. Remember, you are meeting this person for the first time and all this person has to go on  is what they see first! This doesn’t mean that you need to try to look like a super model but, be intentional about what you are wearing.   Be sure to think about what is appropriate for the situation at hand.  For example, color is the first thing you notice about a person, and as a first impression the strategic placement & choice of color of can be extremely powerful.   If you are not sure what to wear then you may need to hire a professional to help you get your look together for you.

If you dress and look like a winner – the world will treat you like one!   You may be preventing your advancement in your career or personal life by dressing inappropriately and giving the wrong signals.  Sometimes we just don’t know the basics and we don’t realize how a few simple changes can affect our entire life.  Changing your appearance will allow you to increase income, enhance your social life and achieve specific goals.  Do your homework on all of your prospects ( it’s helpful to know if a certain dress attire is offensive ).  Always be genuine and show your unique personality.

2Find your connection.

As you prepare for your initial meeting, come up with a few things to talk about as well as four generic questions that will get others talking.  Be the first to say, hello!  If you’re not sure the other person will remember you, offer your name to ease the pressure.  Take your time during introductions. Make an extra effort to remember names and use them frequently. Have something interesting to contribute. Keeping abreast of current events and culture will provide you with great conversation builders, leading with “What do you think of…?” Have you heard…?” What is your take on…?” Stay away from negative  talk or controversial subject matter, and refrain from long-winded stories or giving a lot of detail in casual conversation.  It’s ok to be a little witty too!

3. Smile

The is nothing like a smile to make a good first impression.  A warm friendly confident smile will put both you and the other person at ease.  So smiling is imperative to making a good first impression.  We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

4.  Be Attentive and Courteous

Make eye contact. Stay focused on the person you are speaking with and certainly not on anything else to avoid them feeling unappreciated and unwanted.  Focus 100% on what is being said. When they have finished talking do not jump in immediately. Wait and process what has just been said to you. Then take some time to think carefully about what you want to say. And then you can talk!  Take the time to turn off your mobile phone. There is no better way to ruin a first impression than a cell phone going off in the middle of an in-depth conversation.

5.  Be Confident

Be confident and outgoing!  Try giving compliments to the person or people you want to talk to. By doing this you can start a good conversation.  When a person realizes someone has these easy going qualities, they find them easier to talk with and much more welcoming.  Proper posture is imperative.  Body language can tell someone a lot about your mood and confidence level.   Slouching with your head facing down only makes you look shy, scared and unsure of yourself. You don’t want that.  You must always stand straight and tall.  Look in a mirror and practice, practice, practice!  You’ll look  more confident and proud to be yourself.  Close on a good note to keep them wanting more…….Remember to be yourself!  Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.

Remember to love the skin you are in, Tracey
