What bra should I wear under a wrap dress?
Because the right bra can make all the difference especially if you want to look smart and professional. Choosing a moulded cup will avoid lumps and bumps giving you a smooth seam free finish under close fitting tops and dresses. The plunge shape gives you good coverage and is the perfect shape for a v-neck wrap dress.
The dress featured in this picture is from my Silk Line clothing collection.
The Freya Deco Vibe bra pictured above comes in three tones, blush (pictured), mocha and black. If you have a difficult to find size this bra might be a good option. It starts at 28D, 30D and 32B and goes up to 36GG or 38G.
A key change might be to have 5 small healthy meals a day. (some more info on this that might explain the concept!) – Please note that I think this may take some organisation and I think I’m going to try allocating my Sunday afternoons for weekly food prep!
Mood and Energy Ingredients and recipes to try:
Suggested meal no.2: Snack time for me. A little tub of my favorite mixed nuts like almonds, waltnuts and some broken up dark chocolate make a great pick me up between meals.
Suggested meal no.3: Have a lunchtime salad and not just a boring salad of a load of old leaves! Salads in my book need to be fresh, tasty and filling. This salad from SkinnyTaste that I found via Pinterest looks amazing: Spiralized Raw Zucchini Salad with Avocado and Edamame | Skinnytaste. Last year we had a glut of courgettes/Zucchinis from the allotment and discovered how amazing they are raw very thinly sliced in a salad using a vegetable peeler. I think this is the recipe I used!
Suggested meal no.4: Small potato salad with a lemon vinaigrette with a small portion of grilled chicken on the side (with a nice sauce). Or maybe try something smaller: pop the dressed chicken in a brown pita bread.
Or perhaps an afternoon snack like a piece of fruit can beat those afternoon sweet cravings! (A twist of lemon in a glass of water can help beat cravings.)
Suggested drink no.1: Whilst working at your office desk it can be easy to get sucked into the cycle of teas and coffees. Next time reach for a green tea. Green tea made with steamed leaves has an amazing array of beneficial properties including “prevent clogging of the arteries, burn fat, counteract oxidative stress on the brain”.
Suggested drink no.2: Warm water with lemon juice in it has many benefits include producing digestive juices! Read more about it here.
Suggested drink no.3: Have a cup of Chamomile tea before bed. This can help with mild depression, relieve anxiety and sooth you to sleep.
Do you do pranks in the office? Have you ever had someone do an Aprils Fools joke on you?
I think the harmless ones like these work well, but wow they must have taken a lot of time to do!!
Note to self – Book 1st April off work!!
Grey can look very professional for work. You need to pick the right grey for you. A very dark grey could be perfect or it could overpower you. A pale grey could work wonders or could wash you out. As with all colours you need to see them against your skin tone and preferably in a natural light.
A friend with an honest opinion helps and you can compare different grey’s against your skin tone.
A sales assistant who tells you the truth is worth her weight in gold – ask her opinion, get her suggestions and show your appreciation. All sales assistants should be honest (but this isn’t always the case), if you get home and you hate it then you’ll just take it back, a waste of everyone’s time.
Adding colourful accessories could work just as easily with a grey trouser suit.
The colour you wear has an instant impact in a first impression, a meeting and a presentation.
It doesn’t need to be a full coloured outfit – accessories work just as well. Choose one colour, for instance, purple.
You can add purple in a variety of areas of your outfit:
nail varnish, purse, handbag, cardigan, shoes, scarf, belt or jewellery!
