Easy To Maintain Is Your Style: 6 Things Only Girls Who Hate Dressing Up Understand

Easy To Maintain Is Your Style: 6 Things Only Girls Who Hate Dressing Up Understand

Let’s face it: some of us just don’t like dressing up. We prefer comfort to high fashion and would rather not spend the extra time in the morning coordinating clothes or figuring out which shoes will look best with which outfit. Our low-key style reflects our practical and laid back personalities we’re proud of. If you have ever felt more confident in a T-shirt and your best pair of yoga pants then you’ll understand perfectly these six things that only low-maintenance girls get.

1. You don’t have the time.

Dressing up is hard work. You have to do your hair, put on makeup and figure out what the heck you’re going to wear, and it usually involves uncomfortable footwear. You prefer to dress for the entire day; wearing an outfit that can easily transition from daywear to nightwear. You like to keep your morning routine simple. You usually shower and throw on a pair of workout leggings and a comfy T-shirt. You usually don’t even bother with your contacts. Wearing your chic eyeglasses is so much easier.

2. You’d rather just stay in and watch Netflix if you know that going out means wearing high heels.

High heels look great but they wreak havoc on your feet all night long. How can you enjoy yourself when you’re wincing in pain with every step? You marvel at the girls walking confidently in their heels and secretly think that they must have some kind of superpower to be able to walk like that while strapped into those pain machines all night.

3. Figuring out what shoes to wear with an outfit is actually really really hard.

You don’t want to clash but you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard, and you still want to be comfy. Rather than deal with the struggle, you just slip on the Birkenstocks that you’ve worn for the past six years that go with everything and move on with your day.

4. You love simplicity.

You don’t really own or wear that many accessories or the accessories you do own are basically stashed away and collecting dust. You usually wear a few sentimental pieces of jewelry 90% of the time and only touch your other pieces when you’re feeling particularly adventurous. More often than not, the eyeglasses you own tend to be your only accessory. The good thing is, if you remember any episode of America’s Next Top Model, over-accessorizing is white noise for one’s look. Keep your pallet simple, and let your self be the star, not your bangles.

5. You basically live in your yoga pants.

Yoga pants are mankind’s greatest invention. They’re super comfy, stretchy and don’t dig into your skin like jeans do. Yoga pants are perfect for everything: running errands, doing laundry, going to class, hanging out with friends, working out, or just vegging on the couch and watching Netflix. It’s guaranteed you’ll be perfectly comfortable all day long in your yoga pants.

6. When you do dress up, you feel really awkward.

You’re so used to wearing comfy clothes that when you finally have an obligation to dress up, you feel really weird. But also, you really dig it. You’re reveling in the compliments. “I should do this more often,” you think. But then when you remember how much work it was to get ready, it immediately gives you a headache. You’ll just stick to your usual low-key style.

Girls who hate dressing up don’t like to hide behind clothes and makeup. We like to be genuine and be ourselves all the time. So keep rocking that low-key style and remember that our comfy fashion shows that we’re comfortable with ourselves and are laid-back but still confident and fun.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
