Easy Valentine's Day Outfits


Valentine's Day comes once a year, but you'll feel the outfit stress for weeks. Whether you have a big date or party with friends, you still need a great outfit for this red-filled day. 

An outfit should always be tailored to the place and occassion. If you are going to dinner at a fancy restaurant, then a nice outfit will do. A nice dress with a sweetheart neckline will be classic with a pair of heels. If you're worried about being cold, you can get a long sleeved dress that has a skater skirt. If you don't want to go for the obvious red, white, and pink, get something with leather accents, florals, anything that highlights your style. Heels are not necessary if you are not comfortable in them. Ankle booties are very trendy this season so you can try a pair of those or ballet flats.

What to do When He's Just Not That Into You


Sometimes it’s hard to face the truth, sometimes it isn’t. When you fall hard for a guy, you can’t help it, you just fall. But that doesn’t mean he falls in return. He may have some feelings for you, but not enough to start something. And that may be the worst kind of heartbreak, knowing you’re so close, but still so far. You may not want to admit it, but your good friends will tell you; he’s just not that into you.

The movie "He's Just Not That Into You" has some valuable lessons.


Guys don't always play games. When they want something, they go get it. If a guy really wants to be with you, he'll do everything he can to get you. If he doesn't want you, why would you want him too?

Women are more emotional than men, so we will overthink EVERYTHING. No need to fret, its part of our genetic makeup. That being said just because we overthink and overanalyze everything, men do not. One little sentence structure may not impact a guy as much as it will for you. Mixed messages are more confusing to you, than to men. They are straight forward so try not to analyze everything and go with your gut.
