Hello there!

It is so easy to stop taking care of our appearance once we start getting busier. Maybe it is school/university, maybe it is work. Maybe it is both! Whatever the case may be, dressing the part will always makes us feel more confident. And in order to do our best we have to be at our best! That's why, I decided that today's article will be all about how to look put together even when you feel like a mess and everything else seems to be consuming all our time.

I have a few announcements to make, but I know that you didn't click on this article for that, so I will talk about them at the end. Please keep on reading to find out xx

| Plan your outfits the night before

Even if you are in a rush in the morning and don't really have time to give much thought to your outfit, you will be wearing a nice outfit because you spent 5 minutes the night before to plan it in advance. You will have intencionally chosen your outfit, tried it on and made any adjustments needed.

| Have go-to outfits

Let's say you forgot to choose your outfit the night before, or simply didn't have the time to do it. Having some go-to outfits is the solution. You know you will like them, you know they are comfortable. Spend some time one day trying some different outfit ideas and once you like what you came up with, take a picture of yourself wearing it. That way, when you don't know what to wear, you can go through those pictures and pick one outfit from there!

If you feel lost, use social media for inspiration! Try to recreate outfits you see online with the clothes you own!

Make a collection on WHI with outfit ideas you would like to recreate! Here's mine, if you want some extra inspiration!

| Wrinkle free clothes

This will make a huge difference in your overall look! So always make sure to iron or steam your clothes.

There's a hack going around that says that if you hang your clothes in the bathroom while you take a shower, the steam will iron it. Now, this I have not tried because I've never needed to, but just putting it out there in case you wanna try it!

| Buy a lint roller

This is a must if you have a dog or cat, especially if you often wear black. This will get rid of any hairs in your clothes, and there's no need for an explanation of why this would be beneficial for your overall look haha

| General Tips

  • Tuck in your shirt. It is a simple little thing that can give your outfit a new vibe (and it will also make you look a little taller and slimmer)
  • Roll up your sleves as it will give a more finished look
  • Roll up the ends of your jeans or trousers
  • Have a good posture
  • Pay attention to fit
I wrote an article about how to dress accordingly to your body type, if you are interested, here's the link so you can check it out!

| Fill in your eyebrows

It can really change the way your face looks and make everything look more put together. It sounds so simple, but eyebrows can make such a big difference! To make it easier for you, I would suggest to have them shaped by a professional, so later on it will be much faster and simple to fill them in and maintain them.

| Wear a bold lip color

.. or any color that makes you feel confident!

Trick people into thinking that you spent a lot of time doing your make up when you actually didn't. Carry in your bag whatever lipstick or lip product you decided to use that day, so that you can do any touch ups needed during the day!

| Wear mascara

I truly believe that mascara is one of the things that have most impact on a make up routine. Long lashes are beautiful so, never skip applying mascara! You could get away with a simple eye look and bold lashes, or even no eyeshadow at all!

| Always smell good

Always remember to put some sort of scent. Same as your lipstick, carry in your bag the perfume you are wearing so that you can reapply it when needed.

| Take care if your skin

Clear skin will make you feel more confident about yourself, and that will be reflected on your actitude. What's more, the better your skin looks, the less make up you need. Natural glowing skin is one of the best things that could happen if you ask me!

| Minty breath

Brush your teeth with a minty toothpaste before leaving your house and keep chewing gum in your bag to maintain the minty breath all day. Mint shows freshness and cleanness.

I actually keep in my bag a pack of chewing gum AND a travel size toothbrush and toothpaste if I know I will eat out

Make sure to always have them clean and neat. Well-manicured nails show that you pay attention to detail.

  • Pay attention to your cuticle
  • Avoid chipped polish
  • Make your manicure last longer with gel polish so that you don't have to worry about them that often

I wrote two articles about simple little things you can do to improve the overall look of your nails and hands. If you are interested in that, you can check them out here:

Your hair can make or break your outfit. So you have two options here: style it or make it look like you styled it. If you can't be bothered to straight or curl your hair properly, put it in a ponytail or a sleek bun.

If you want to re touch your second day hair or give it more volume, dry shampoo is your best friend.

Here are some ideas to hide the fact that you didn't put much time into your hair:

  • Pony tail
  • Braids
  • Bun
  • Hat/cap/beanie
  • At least brush it

That's it for today's article! I hope you found it helpful!

Before I leave, I wanted to make a few announcements, so here they are!

I'm changing my posting schedule

Lately, I've been being tagged to do tons of challenges, and I'm really excited to write about them, but I don't want to have all my content being tags and challenges, as I really enjoy making articles like today's. The best solution I came up with was starting to post three times a week instead of only two, as I have been doing. So, during April, I will be posting Wednesdays, Fridays AND Sundays! I hope you are as excited as I am to be posting more content!

I will be delaying my "How to grow your WHI account" article

Giving the change in algorithm on the Discover page, I want to wait till that gets fixed to post that article, as I want it to be as helpful as it can be! Hope you can understand xx

I've joined The WHI Squad!

If you don't know what TWS is, it is basically a group of WHI users that every month do a contest called #WHITheCollectors. I really encourage you to check it out! Round 5 is currently taking place, and all you need to do to participate is create a Grunge Collection! The deadline for this round is the 20th of April, so you have plenty of time still!

Follow the TWS account to be up to date with the contests themes and winners!
In this article you can check out all the rules and information about Round 5! I hope to see you joining it! (if you do, send me a postcard and I will give you a shoutout in my next article xx)

I finally said all I needed to say now! lol As always, feel free to message me if you want to leave a suggestion for my future articles or simply if you just wanna talk to someone ♡
