6 ways to pamper yourself

Hey my gorgeous girls! Are you planning to brave it all by yourself on Valentine’s Day? What if we told you that we know your knight in shining armour? The love of your life, the eternally charming, funny, smart and gorgeous person, who is unconditionally and madly in love with you and knows all about you. Would you like to know who it is? It’s YOU your inner self.

Come on, wrap your arms around yourself, and give yourself a tight bear hug. You are amazing! What does one do with somebody they really love? You start by spending real quality time with them, right? We have put together some really cool ideas for that amazing “self-date” for this Valentine’s Day – a time you spend with just yourself. So, here it goes.

1. A short and cozy trip by yourself: One night at a nice hotel/resort. It sound a little new and offbeat, I know – and perhaps even a little weird, but that is not to say you would not enjoy it.

This may cost you a small sum, but it wouldn’t be worth to treat yourself to a luxurious weekend, would it? We advise you pamper yourself to all the facilities – gym, sauna, pool, spa, room service and the like. Feel like the queen of your heart.

2. Treat yourself to fine dining and a romantic evening: Choose the recipe for something your love would have made for you. Something you really desire and have longed to taste since some time. Get the ingredients, take out the best bottle of wine and sit in the best corner of your balcony. Enjoy the evening with yourself… pure joy, ain’t it?

3. Learn something new: Something you have always wanted to know. Go for a day long dance workshop or call up that guitar teacher home. It’s time to bring out that creative genius inside of you. Creation brings out the pure charm inside of you.

4. Splurge on a photo shoot: Oh so many of us do this anyway, so this would actually be an organized version of the thousands of pictures you normally take for one usable Facebook photo. Go clicking on your webcam or point-n –shoot camera and create something crazy and fun. Be your own stylist, photographer and pose like a pro!

5. A fancy bath: Buy the bath salts, get the candles and dim the lights. It’s time for some spoiling. After all you have worked yourself all week;it’s time to pamper yourself to the hilt.

6. Buy sexy lingerie as a treat: This is the perfect gift for you on Valentine’s Day. You get to feel loved, special and sexy. We recommend you take a break from the hustle and bustle, and take some time to think about how you would like to take your body on a treat. What would you want that would help you carry yourself with more poise and confidence during the day? What would make you feel and look sexy all day long? In order to make your work easy, we have narrowed your options to just a few – go pamper yourself now on them –

Hottest lingerie colours
Must-haves in your lingerie drawer

Every new year and with every slight change in the season, we would love to refresh our wardrobes with the latest trends and fashions. From the coldest days to the hottest nights, PrettySecrets is dedicated to keeping you on trend and fashion-conscious! And when it comes to fashion trends, colours probably play the most vital role! So today we are going to give you a forecast on 2015′s most trending colours and the must-have colours in your lingerie drawer this year.

It is without a doubt that the colours we wear coincide with the season. The different tones set the mood and mould the appearance of the fashion season. And we love colours! After looking at the latest trends in lingerie, we have noticed that in 2015, there will be a shift into cool tones, straying away from the typical pastel blues, pinks and greens.

It seems that 2014 was quite a bold one if we consider the colours! Neons, metallics, blood reds, shocking pinks and so on. But for 2015, the colours have toned down to cooler ones. As though royal metallics and jewel tones, along with a balance of closely pitched low-tones from 2014, creates a harmonious ripe colour palette for the 2015 forecast. The pine greens and custard yellows along with the strawberry ice pinks and scuba blues are a remotely fresh take on next year.

Pine Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, pine green has a minty glow. To feel fresh you should add this bra to your closet for those burning summer days.

Well all our pink lovers, don’t be disappointed that 2015 doesn’t have any pink on its colour palette. It actually has. The colour is called Strawberry Ice. Doesn’t it sound cute? We are totally in love with this shade.

prettysecrets--31

Scuba Blue conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. So if you are planning holidays in some tropical place, this shade is a must have for your lingerie bag!

-demi-bestsellers-padded-allure-seamless-new-arrivals-31

Sweet and sunny, Custard yellow is a cheering tone that brings thoughts of relaxation and comfort food. I mean, how delicious the word ‘Custard’ sounds! It’s an essential for all those who have a serious sweet tooth. ;)

--lingerie-sets-33

Just because the anticipated colour palette for 2015 has been announced, doesn’t mean you have to wait many moons for these looks to dominate your wardrobe. If you love fashion just as much as we do, you will probably want your hands on these lustful trends before they take off and are everywhere. What are waiting for? Get your girlfriends and plan for a lingerie shopping day out!

Rock the LBD in style!
5 different ways to wear it

The little black dress or the popular LBD came into existence in the 1920s when it was first invented by French designer, Coco Chanel. Fast forward a couple of years and in 1961, the LBD was rocked by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Inspired by this classic beauty, the dress became a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. No dress is as versatile and sexy as the little black dress.

From work to an afternoon brunch to a night of dancing…the LBD can go a long way. It always looks good on everyone. Moreover, the best part is that you can always dress it up or down depending on the occasion with the right style of shoes and other accessories. Here are some ways on how you can rock the little black dress.

For the work ‘chic’ look: Pair your LBD with a basic blazer or a jacket and you are all set to go to work or for a formal interview. You can wear a classic colour such as black or white or opt for more fun colours such as yellow and blue. You can also wear a simple belt to inject a more formal look. Complete your outfit with a leather handbag and a pair of wedges.

work

For an afternoon shopping date with the girls: Heels are definitely a no-no if you are out for some serious shopping. So pair your LBD with some sneakers or ballet flats. Add a scarf to give that layered look. You can go for neon colours to add some fun to your day look. It is also essential to keep your hands free while shopping, so opt for a cross body bag rather than a tote or clutch.

shopping

For a dinner date: There is no substitute for the little black dress when you are going for a dinner date with that special someone. Pair it with some head turning accessories to add that extra oomph to your look. Instead of the regular black stilettos, add a dash of gold or red shoes to make your dress stand out. It is always fun to experiment with some colour and add a flirty and sexy colour to your look. Another way to add that ravishing look would be to add a touch of leather by pairing your dress with a leather jacket.

date

For a rocking party: Go all out with your LBD for a night of crazy partying. Wear your dress with a statement neck piece or make it flashy by adding layers of necklaces along with some bling earrings. For that extra bit of dazzle, wear a neon belt. Complete the look with red pumps or stilettos and a metallic clutch.

party

For a wedding: Wearing the little black dress is totally acceptable for a wedding. It is chic and fashionable. However, you should try and stay classy with some delicate jewellery and block heels as you are not really going for a party. Don’t forget to pair them with some killer shoes though.

Bring in 2015 – 5 Fashion Resolutions

We all know what the New Year brings… Resolutions, and an overwhelming pressure to keep them. Resolutions are like diets; they never work! We set ourselves up for failure followed by guilt when we really could avoid the whole thing. Instead of waiting for a “certain date” to do something, just do it when you think of it, or soon after. Then it becomes something you just do rather than a big serious impending responsibility that you just want to run from.

So since we’re talking about Fashion Resolutions here, let’s try to make this little list of goals into fun activities that become a part of who we are.

Right size in lingerie
What is it about bras? Considering that the vast majority of the female population wears one on a daily basis it is surprising how many women haven’t nailed finding the right one. Many women don’t know how a bra should fit and therefore don’t even know that they wearing the wrong size.

Wearing the correct bra size can do a lot more than lifting your bust. When you slip on that perfectly fitting bra you will see much more of a flattering silhouette, your waist will be accentuated and your confidence boosted too.

Indeed the right bra is worth its weight in gold so how do you know if yours isn’t up to scratch? There are several ways to tell if your bra is fitting correctly and a good bra fitter can explain how to do this. We advise a professional fitting at least every six months and with most lingerie departments offering a free service it is hassle-free and an easy way to try new sizes and shapes.

However, if you are doing it alone then it’s worth remembering the following rule; As the cup size on a bra changes it does not affect the back size however as the back size increase/decreases the cup size gets proportionally larger or smaller. So if you find that you need to go down a back size you will probably need to go up a cup size to get a good fit.

Just donate it!
We tend to get in a rut and cycle through our favourite 20 outfits instead of wearing the rest of the stuff! So clean out and reorganize your closet on a regular basis; make an effort to wear everything in your closet or else donate it.

I know whenever we try to go through it to get rid of some stuff, find ourselves wanting to keep everything. But you would finally realize while cleaning out your closet that a handful of “new” outfits just waiting to be worn. Sometimes it’s as simple as hanging two items next to each other. You may have never thought to pair them together until you visually see them side by side, then voila! New outfit!

So this is the new rule to most of the women out there that have this problem, “Wear it or its out!”

Quality over Quantity
Keep this mantra in mind – Buy Less, Spend more! Buy fewer overall items and invest in quality wardrobe staples. Choosing pieces that will last for years to come not only because of their quality but because they are a timeless and classic style will not only guarantee you’ll always have the perfect thing to wear on hand, but it will save you money in the end.

I know it’s hard to resist buying tons of cheap items on a whim, but rather have less in the closet and more pieces that you truly love and can wear for years to come.

Stop impulse buying!
You know, we all have this problem. Whenever you are at your favourite shopping store, there would be at least one item that you bought just because it spoke to you and you never worn them.

Think Before You Buy – Online shopping actually helps to buy more responsibly because it gives you time to really look at all other options and compare prices as well as look in the closet to see if you have already own something similar.

Never say Never
Don’t shy away to try something different in fashion. Denim on denim, big hair, blue eye shadow, etc., etc. and so on and so forth! It all comes back in style, and who can resist fun trends?

So be more fearless with colours and prints! It is just too tempting to get a basic hue (like black or grey jeans) and throw a colour on top of it. We always tend to steer toward neutral and black, but seeing someone rocking a chic print may make you think, ‘I should wear something like that!’.

This year try colour combos, like a combination of primary colours or combine different patterns in the same outfit. For sure a little more work to get ready, but a more fun outfit as a result.

Sweet Dreams
Must-haves in your sleepwear closet

After a long tiring day, you just want to return home, have a relaxing warm water bath and then slip into really comfortable nightwear. In earlier times, nightwear was usually a pair of worn out shirt and pants but the concept is so much different now. Nowadays girls prefer sleepwear that is not only comfy but also fun and flirty. Sleepwear tells a lot about a girl – it’s the way she feels, her mood and her need for comfort, style and fashion.

There are so many different styles to choose from such as cute shorts and tanks, pajamas & tops/tees, romantic short nightdress, flirtatious babydolls and elegant nightgowns & wraps. You can choose any one of them depending on your mood on a particular night. All of them have their own significance and are best suited for different moods & occasions. And by occasions, I mean slumber parties, overnight camping and romantic nights. So here are some of the must-haves in your nightwear wardrobe.

Sleepshirts are super comfy and perfect for someone who tosses and turns all night – blame the phenomenon on long working hours and a restless mind!

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/styles/sleepshirt

Shorts & Tanks/tees are perfect for slumber parties, because it’s just not a sleepover but a night full of gossip, stories, fashion tips, pillow fighting and fun games. Cute shorts and tanks never go out style; they are ultra comfortable so you can lie around however you like.

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/styles/shorts

Pajamas have evolved to become a well known type of slumber wear for women. They are cozy and warm. Pajamas are comfortable to sleep in as they are loose fitting and made of light weight softer materials such as cotton, silk or satin.

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/styles/pajamas

Short nightdress or chemise is perfect for those who want more feminine and elegant nightwear; these will always make you feel stylish and appealing. Satin nightdress is still the hot favourite for most of the women because of its smooth texture and sophisticated style.

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/styles/short-nightdress

Long Nightdress (typical nightgowns) is the traditional nightwear and is available in a variety of styles and patterns these days. Nightgowns are modest and simple, best suited to be worn when family seniors and guests are around.

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/styles/long-nightdress

Babydolls: For wedding nights, slipping into sexy lingerie may not be the newest idea but it’s always fun. We all have that special satin lingerie for romantic nights back in our closet. Babydolls are flirtatious, seductive and are a must-have in your wardrobe. They are great to spice up things with your special someone and yes, they are not only meant for wedding nights. Wear them on any night to make it special.  They come in different styles such as sheer, lacy, mesh & flyaway, so get ready to start a fire and warm up any night.

Keep Calm and Lace Up
Bring back the Corset

Corsets have gone through a considerable amount of “social perspective transition”, from shape enhancers & beauty amplifiers to restrictive impractical clothing and now formally the present day sophisticated shape-wears!

Now-a-days corsets have become more of inner beauty secrets while concurrently serving as functional clothing.

We are absolutely in love with corsets and their timeless beauty! They have this magical capability of transferring you from Plain Jane to Sexy Diva! Corsets give you a really flattering hourglass shape by pulling your waist in and shaping it.

I know you all will agree that if not worn right, corsets can turn out to be a bit of a trouble! So I am going to let you in on a little secret, “the hidden science of wearing a corset”

Firstly, pick the right size. Yes, we do want to look all toned and feel thinner than we really are but that does not mean we go and pick a size S when we really are a size M! Corsets are technically designed garments and are dimensioned according to each size. So embrace your curvy self and pick out the right one!
Check out our favorite:

Secondly, get used to your corset. The few times you wear your corset, don’t lace it too tightly and don’t wear it for too long. You should get used to it first, and lacing up with 2″ reduction will allow the corset fabric to get used to being worn without putting too much strain on it. The idea is to allow the corset to mould itself according to your body type and at the same time allow yourself to get used to it.

As Anna Held correctly and very aptly states, “To put on a corset properly is as much of an art as to make a corset properly”

So don’t forget to wear it right and pair it right. Go be the diva you are!

Happy Corseting!

Party Clutch Essentials
What you should not miss

So, it’s the party season. I hope you guys enjoyed Thanksgiving! We are about to start on an amazing holiday and festive season filled with crazy experiences. Roll up your sleeves, fill your eyes with that naughty charm, and get your best dresses out of the closet – the party has just started.

We help you to get all the essentials in place for an amazing time with the girls. We know you are going to look amazingly hot in whatever you wear, but highly recommend that you tout only the essentials in your party clutch apart from the absolute must-haves like emergency cash, credit card, ID card , keys etc.

So go ahead and check out our list below. We will make sure you are not left alone and are better prepared for a sexy adventure that beckons you.

1. A fully charged mobile phone:
An absolute essential by all means. Not only does it keep you well informed on where the after party is planned, but also makes sure you don’t miss out any unplanned adventures that your friends plan on the spot. You are on top of your friends whereabouts, are battle ready in case of emergencies, and off course quick to hold on to that cutie’s number who just got you a martini. Go crazy with the selfies!

2. Lipstick and Chap Stick:
We are surprised by the number of women who chose to leave that amazing shade at home and rather opt to tone it down with mismatching glosses. If it looks ravishing at home, we strongly advise you bring that colour along.
Also throw in that clutch a cute little all-purpose balm that will be the moisturiser, lip balm and hand moisturiser all-rounder in your entourage. Plus it tames the unruly cuticle.

3. Travel-size perfume bottle:
Add a small travel sized perfume bottle to the clutch that will make the gentlemen swoon. Add a little tangy and spice instead of the natural perfume with something more interesting and come-close friendly. Also, just as a word of caution, go easy on it. Research states that ninety-nine percent of men would rather have their women smell a little musty than have their nostrils singed by overzealous dousing.

4. Caffeine infused face cream:
A quick tip – it’s possible to take care of those trouble spots and temporarily reduce swelling and contribute to the appearance of, say, a tighter tummy, skinnier thighs, or less puffy under-eye circles by using caffeine based products. The ingredient dehydrates fat cells, making skin appear smoother. We recommend you look and play the part to the hilt. ;)

5. Gum:
Don’t you want him to think you taste and smell good? It’s always a life saver in case you want to pucker up.

6. Roll-Up Flats:
So that you don’t miss a step while heading to the road side stall or the after party through a cobbled street. Or maybe if you’re feeling less than stable circa 3:00 a.m. Plus you wouldn’t want to be left behind when that hunk happens to walk at a brisk space. Also, wouldn’t you love to give those hellish high heels a miss the first chance you get?

city-slips

7. G-String:
Well this one is for the more adventurous. We recommend carrying (if you’re not already wearing or plan to change on your way to a second party) a G-string so that an out of place seam or a line does not spoil that hot bodycon.

The Boudoir in our Stars – II
Lingerie for each Zodiac Sign

The New Year is coming, and we all are looking for ways to redefine our energies, strive for new beginnings and welcome the new world with added passion and vigor. You want to welcome the year with added confidence, self-belief and with amazing appreciation for who you are (while it never hurts if your partner agrees with you vehemently ;) ).

In this edition of The Boudoir in Our Stars we invite you to connect with your lingerie at a deeper level. We introduce the inner you to your lingerie; something that comes to you naturally and what you are inherently cut out for. While we believe this list is not exhaustive and might not be true for every woman out there, but a lot of us here can truly relate to it. We want you to go out and have fun with it!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The female is the Queen of her world. Demanding yet caring, amazing in all spheres of life. She commands respect, be it in the office or the bedroom. We recommend corsets, cone shaped bras, fishnet stockings and all things erotic. Add the satin and the lace with the textures. Keep your man on a tight leash (yes off course, pun intended)

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-pink-floral-lace-black-corset

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
This girl likes to be reserved but get her in front of her intimate partner and he won’t forget the sting. The girl enjoys corsets, chemises and packs multiple surprises for only the lucky one. We recommend adding to the arsenal of the intriguing and yet fatal seductress. Sigh, if the man just knew what hit him.

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-red-lace-trim-short-chemise

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
The lovely Sagittarius female, oh she is such a tease. A heart full of love, this female loves to experiment in love and life. Sexy tones of black lace lingerie bring out her confidence and the drive which she brings to everything in her life. We recommend black satin textures and fishnets for the lovely yet powerful Sagittarius. She is a keeper!

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-black-strapy-monokini

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Now here is a female you don’t take for granted. The woman is serious and rightly so about all the things that matter to hear dearly. She is soft and can be the best partner for a lucky guy. She carries off whites with supreme ease and confidence. She is no “show queen” but a woman of substance and clarity. An angel descended from the heavens, she looks incarnate in white. Bow down to her.

http://prettysecrets.com/nightwear/shopby/colors-white/

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
The Aquarius cannot be charmed easily. You can’t blow her mind from bright glittery stuff and sequins. She is subtle and deep emotionally. Purple accentuates her tones and moods. Velvet brings out the softness and depth in her and indigo completes her. We recommend trying out the jeweled tones in our collection and leave all the games for later ;)

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-royal-purple-incredible-extreme-liftpush-up-bra

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The female has a weakness for all things glittery and bright. After all she is a treasure from the ocean. We highly recommend emerald, azure and all icy tones. The colors add to her instinctive nature and complement her soothing personality. Plus your man wouldn’t mind a treasure hunt at all.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
For the sensuous and fiery Aries woman we recommend red lingerie. Red brings out the fire and passion in the adventurous personality of the Aries woman. go for textures in satin to add the extra oomph and surprise your partner.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Here is the soft and charming Taurus sweetheart. We encourage you to explore floral patterns in a variety of colors just like your fragrant personality. We encourage you to explore multicolored lingerie; textured, patterned or with embroidery

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-blue-cherry-blossom-print-flyaway-babydoll

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Airy and easy going, the Gemini woman should let her personality exude from her inner wear as well. Why don’t you explore thongs and our wide variety of mesh/lacy lingerie? We recommend sexy peek-a-boos for the confident and self-aware Gemini woman. And we bet he will love it to the hilt!

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-black-cheetah-thong

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
We love the Cancerian woman. The girl next door is tender, chirpy, flirtatious yet reserved. Pink accentuates her personality and adds color to her confidence ever so subtly. Pink exudes a reserved yet flirtatious look and adds the extra bit of charm. We highly recommend looking for soft textures to make your man love you all the more deeply.

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-pretty-pink-polka-short-chemise

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
We tread carefully but lovingly near the lioness. Ready to pounce and eat a man up. Red comes pretty close to a lioness’s personality but we recommend adding a tad more spice to the intriguing personality of a Leo woman. We recommend rare but spicy orange, bold copper, golds and dark reds. The lioness can also explore tiger and leopard prints further from her extended cat family. The lion will certainly roar in approval.

http://prettysecrets.com/prettysecrets-brown-animal-t-shirt-push-up-bra

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Here is the earthly natural maiden descendant from the heavens. Soft, vulnerable yet confident. She stays close to her heart and drives her energies from all natural things. Brown, caramel, and dark hues of gold add that extra comfort to this nature lover. Plus the man never complains, as he is always a tad bit more inclined to all things natural ;) .
