If you’re a girl, you’ve probably experienced that moment of panic when a friend calls to invite you to go out — tonight — and you look like you just rolled out of bed. Perhaps it’s because you did just roll out of bed, but, regardless of the reason, you need to look sharp right away. Instead of turning down the offer because you can’t get ready in time, turn to some of these quick and easy ideas to make yourself look great without spending all day on it.
Picking the Perfect Outfit
A girls’ night out is about dressing up, but also about being comfortable. You aren’t going on a fancy date (although you may end up meeting some cute guys), so you don’t need to worry too much about looking as good as you possibly can. The best outfit recipe for a girls’ night out is one pair of dark wash skinny jeans with a cute top and sexy heels. The heels automatically make the jeans look fancy, and the top is the perfect way to show off your personality. Plus, you hardly have to think about anything to find an outfit that matches!
Adding Great Accessories
Don’t forget to add some accessories to complete your outfit. Choose a chunky bracelet that matches the colors in your top or shoes and a necklace that complements the neckline of your top. Lastly, make sure to grab a purse or clutch and transfer your essentials into it. A fancy bag can make a huge difference, and you don’t want to be lugging your usual purse around when you’re out and about with the girls.
Doing Your Hair
There are two major options for how to do your hair if you don’t have time to wash and style it as you usually do, but still need to look great. First, consider an updo, which is super forgiving and makes the messy look suddenly stylish. Second, consider clip-in consider clip-in hair extensions, which are really helpful for adding volume to flat hair. Because the extensions are already styled, it’s as simple as clipping them in and giving your natural hair the boost it needs.
Adding Pizzaz with Makeup
Take a few minutes before you head out to complete your look with some makeup. Focus on high-impact areas because you’ll probably be in poorly-lit places anyway, so nobody will see the subtle techniques. Start with eyeliner and mascara, then add a touch of blush and a lipstick that will make your look really pop. If you have time, shimmery eye shadow makes it look like you really went the extra mile.
Not having enough time to get ready should never hold you back from enjoying a night out with the girls. Have some versatile clothes, accessories and styling tools on hand so you can get ready in a flash. And remember, your girls are the priority, so it’s about wearing things that not only look great, but also feel comfortable!
Rings are a symbol of eternity because they are round right? They go on and on and on… What do you think of this? In grade 6, Janice and I use to get Best Friends Rings from Claires and kept them til we lost them or they turned our fingers green.
Rings are one of my favorite jewelry pieces and I found a few promise rings from My Jewelry Box that I really like.
Diamond promise ring
I have to tell you, I have never received a promise ring before. But I do love this quote:
Losers make promises they often break. Winners make commitments they always keep. ~Denis Waitley
Lucky for me, he stays winning 🙂
For under $200 I think these make a superb gift… should I get one for myself?
Which one is your favorite?
Today is the day that one of my closest, fondest, most-wonderful friends celebrates her birthday!!!! Happy Birthday Chelle!!!
Known to you as Michelle or @MichelleFxo… the kid and I have been friends since we were four years old… thats 23 years of friendship!
Through every single life experience and/or milestone, Chelle’s presence has been a necessity that I can always rely on. Godmother to my son, daughter to my mother, sister to my sisters… and all the same back this way! Countlessly proving the extent of how deep our friendship goes, any moment this woman has been needed, I open my eyes (literally) and she’s been there! The hope is that one day I’ll be able to show her to the extent that the love goes both ways, I’m down for whatever… whenever… for you ((and my beautiful niece Taiya, of course))!
So… Happy Birthday (again) Muffin, you are lovedddd!!!
