From the title of this post, I am sure that you are asking "What the heck is a Brablem?". It is exactly what you would think it is, bra-problems. As women, problems with our bras is a situation we run in to daily and we have had enough!!! In this post I am going to share some of the most common brablems, as well as my least fav issues and also give you some tips to get rid of those pesky brablems once and for ALL!! Who's with me?!?!?
Brablem 1: One of my biggest Brablems is my straps always falling down! There is nothing more annoying than constantly having to fix a falling strap through out the day. It didn't even occur to me to think that it's caused by the straps stretching out!
Solution: Tighten your straps roughly once a month, the slightest amount will make the biggest difference. If that doesn't work try to switch to a full coverage or a convertible bra, as they tend to have the narrowest straps.
Brablem 2: I hate this one, especially when wearing a low cut top; cup gaping - space between you and your bra. For those of us with sisters rather than twins, this can be one of our most common brablems.
Solution: Try to go down a cup size or a 1/2 size. Never heard of half sizes? The company Third Love has solved all of our problems with this one, by offering half sizes in bras!! Ie. If you are wearing a 34B and are a victim to cup gaping, Third Love recommends to try their 34AA 1/2 size, to prevent such an issue.
You could also try a push up or plunge style bra to eliminate the extra space on top.
Brablem 3: Band riding up. That heavy, tight feeling in your back that leaves you uncomfortable all day long. This also has a bad effect on our posture, as standing up straight just feels like too much effort.
Solution: Go for a smaller band and keep in mind when going down a band size, you need to go up a cup size. Ie. If you are currently wearing a 36B, you should now get a 34C to rectify the issue.
What are your biggest Brablems?

With warm weather comes leg domination, when we all start ditching our beloved jeans for the perfect sexy Little Black Dress. I've come up with two diffetent looks, each involving a LBD from Daily Look for the perfect Spring date night.
The first outfit is a bit more edgy, but definitely still feminine and sexy.
The second look is perfect for a night out during those warmer months and it is also perfect to bring with you on vacation for when dining in at the resort.
A new shoe company StandFor from Portugal is offering a preview of their new Spring/Summer 2015 collection exclusively in the blogosphere and I am so honoured to be one of the chosen few to participate in this sneak peek preview. The world premier is set for April 13th.
StandFor is not just your everyday shoe company each of their collections (this being their first) have a meaning behind them to raise awareness. Their very first collection is "Smoke Less".
"“Smoke Less” is our first statement, which makes it doubly significant. We chose it because we are aware of how important a theme it is. Smoking is a global issue that must be treated with maximum attention."
Smoking is indeed a global issue and effects all of us daily. Growing up in a home of smokers and now having a baby myself, I can definitely relate to how severe it can be to some. I will do anything and everything to protect my little girl and those closest to me and if this collection can bring enough awareness to help one person to cut back or even quit smoking, then the air around us will be that much cleaner and easier to breath.
"We think it is a reasonable thing to ask that people smoke less. Our intention is to promote a reduction of smoke in people’s lives as well as in the environment that surrounds us. We feel that it’s a significant contribution to improve everyone’s life".
Not only does the collection Stand For a global issue, but it also offers super cute shoes!!! The company also offers free international shipping which is a huge plus, as shipping can usually cost a pretty penny. They also offer fast and easy returns on any UNUSED products within fifteen (15) days from the date of delivery. All sizes are european and they have styles for both men and women.
Some of the styles include:
How cute would they look with a pair of skinny jeans, a white tee with a statement necklace and a leather jacket!! They are perfect for everyday wear and you can also go with a solid colour (ie. the Literal shoe) with a dressier outfit or even for the office.
They also offer more literal graphics and colours if you want something different and a little more fashion forward.

Thanks so much for reading!!!
Until next time,
The holidays are officially here and most of us have packed schedules with party after party to attend. Getting ready for a holiday party takes a lot more work than a regular party. You are going to see your entire family, friends that you haven't seen in a while or all of your co-workers in one room. Seeing all of these people we of course want to look our absolute best and different than we normally do.
For all of us ladies doing our makeup for a special occasion can take forever, at least longer than normal. This post is mostly for fun, as I would never step out of my house looking like this. In this post I have also included some major tips to help save anyone from a makeup mishap for anytime of the year.
- Do wear colour and have fun with it.
- Do NOT wear a bold colour on your eyes, lips and cheeks. Pick ONE feature to be your main focus.
- Do fill in your eyebrows to add more depth to your face and make your eyes open up.
- Do NOT over fill in your brows, this can literally make you look crazy!! Do follow your natural arch and fill in any sparse areas.
- Do contour your face and add bronzer or a cream concealer in a shade that is two shades darker than your foundation.
- Do NOT pick a shade that is more than two shades darker than your foundation or it will look unnatural and muddy.
- Do wear false lashes or a volumizing mascara to make your eyes appear wider and pull your entire look together.
- Do NOT wear lashes that are too dramatic, especially if you already have a bold eye look going on - you don't want to hide the masterpiece that you just created on your lids. You also don't want to look like you have a critter hanging over your eyes.
- Do wear glitter and a highlighter to beighten up your face and help add dimension.
- Do NOT wear a highlighter that is too light for your complexion and Do NOT dip your face in glitter.
I hope that you may have gotten a laugh from this post and also some helpful tips!!!
Have an amazing holiday everyone and Merry Christmas!!!!
