Join the sweepstakes and enjoy wearing Crocs #SplashofColor

This post brought to you by Crocs. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is very warm now in Western New York. According to our thermometer, the temperature is 90 degrees.  It is not summer yet and we are experiencing the summer weather which is awesome. I am glad that  I am wearing shorts, tanks and my flip-flops now. I am thankful that my husband vacuumed the pool before he goes to work. I cannot wait to jump in with my kids when they go arrive from school.

I have to make sure that I applied sun block lotion all over my body.
My skin is very tan. I have to protect it from the sun.
I also prepare my little girl’s sunglasses for her. I was in the pool awhile ago.
I submerged my feet in the water to  cool off. It feels great. I have to enjoy my alone time with myself before my kids will arrive.  It is loud and full of laughter when they swim in the pool.
I also love the peaceful time in the computer. I love to join any sweepstakes. One sweepstake I join is this
Crocs Instagram Sweepstakes.  I do not have a pair of Crocs flip-flops yet. My little girl has a pair of Crocs and have to find so she can wear it. The concrete is very hot. It is not safety for her feet to walk barefoot. Why I want to win this sweepstake? It is because I love any Crocs footwear. I love the #splashofcolor they have in their footwear. I love that any footwear is very durable. I want t win a flip-flops and want it in red. It is my favorite color.
I won many sweepstakes before and would love to win this one. I am inviting all my readers to please join the sweepstakes.  Please let me know why you want to win this sweepstake by living your comment below. I do appreciate it very much. I wish all my readers good luck.

5 Ways To Dress Yourself Skinny

So many girls are complaining about how “fat” they are. Then you actually take a good look at these girls and you realize they aren’t fat at all, they just look fat. I can say this because I am a former bad dresser. I had to learn the hard way that how you dress plays an important role in how big or small you look. I was always wearing frumpy clothing even though I have a pretty petite frame. When it comes to your clothes, it matters what you choose. One shirt could make you look twenty pounds heavier while a different style could make you look ten pounds thinner. Which one would you choose? I’m betting you’d choose the latter. Here are five different ways you can dress yourself skinny!

1. Tiny prints.

Tiny prints, like polka dots, are an instant frame slimmer. If you choose huge dots or elongated stripes on a shirt, you are bound to look five or even ten pounds heavier. Who wants that? Nobody! Instead, opt for smaller prints on your shirts. Small polka dots, tiny animal print, or even little floral patterns are extremely flattering

2. Steer clear of horizontal stripes.

Horizontal stripes can make even the thinnest person on the planet look ten pounds heavier. Horizontal stripes are always adding unnecessary poundage to the sides of your body. No thank you! Steer clear of stripes altogether. Vertical stripes make you look like you are an inmate and horizontal stripes will make you look fat. Opt for a different patterned shirt.

3. Use a belt.

When you are looking to add a little definition to your shape, use a belt! A belt can look great with all types of outfits. From dresses to cardigans, loop a belt around your waist to make yourself look instantly smaller and more petite.

4. Choose form fitting shirts.

When you are trying on clothes in the dressing room, do you ever notice how dark the lighting is? Take a look at the mirror and the angle it is facing. Chances are, you look awesome in the fitting room. Now, I’m not saying you don’t look awesome in real life. But dressing rooms lie. So be sure you check out your shirt or pants from all angles. Sit down, stand up, turn around, jump up and down to see exactly how the shirt will fit when you are wearing it out in the real world. I can’t tell you how many times this little trick has saved me from buying a baggy shirt that made me look way heavier than I actually am.

5. Slim your pants to slim your legs.

Altering your clothes is so super important. No two people are built the same way, so why do we only have S, M, and L sizes to choose from? Everyone is built differently. That’s why altering your clothes is a necessity. Spend the extra cash to make sure that shirt you love fits you like a glove instead of adding ten or twenty pounds heavier. In fact, there are tons of different ways you can alter your clothes all by yourself!
