17 Fall Winter Fashion Essentials That You Need To Have In 2015

17 Fall Winter Fashion Essentials That You Need To Have In 2015

Winter’s around the corner. Now that we are in the middle of fall, it is better to have a wardrobe planned ahead. Say a “see ya later” to your summer garbs, and make space in your closet.

This year’s fall winter fashion will see some bold and bright colors. Colors that will be big hits are red, maroon, burgundy, orange, sapphire blue, emerald green, white, and of course black. Of course, one must be absolutely comfortable in what one is wearing. Because these colors are “in” don’t mean that you have to have wear these colors. Choose whatever you are comfortable in. In my opinion, I always prefer polished, yet adventurous colors in winter because it makes me feel vibrant amidst the dark, gloomy days. But that is my personal choice.

Black is one color that never goes out of fashion. More or less, we all feel confident in this one color. A black dress, or a black trouser, a black shirt, anything, is a must in our closet. Without any further ado, let me present you with the fall winter fashion essentials that you need to have in this year.

1. Winter hats for the girls

                                  From block heels, no heels, to stilettos, this fall winter will see a variety range of footwear for the women. The formal shoes have a manly touch to them similar to the blazers. There will be two types of boots. One has some blings, a good one for clubbing, while the other is simple, yet classy, can be used for both formal and informal occasions. The stilettos have bead works, or maybe stones too, a perfect for some fancy dinner.

                                  mens-footwear-fw-2014-15-armani-jeans

                                    Men, for your casual day out, sneakers are the best bet. They are comfortable, and they come in colors too. A shade of fluorescent tint will add some character to your shoes. The formal pairs are simple, nothing to fancy about them. Meanwhile, go for some small blocked heels. A leathered texture boots can come in two colors: black and brown. Both are smart, and will suit your formal suits as well.

                                    You can have one of these, or you can have multiple of these, but don’t  go bankrupt on buying stuffs so that you are very much “in” the fall winter fashion. Instead, mix matching one or two of your new garbs with your old ones is also a great idea. Don’t forget to accessorise with a neckpiece, or a big, dangling earrings, a fancy watch (men, this is for you too), and some bracelets. Also, don’t forget to line your eyes with a dash of eyeliner, and a bold color on your lips. Stay fashionable and stay warm! Happy winter, everyone!

                                    20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

                                    20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

                                    Are you usually punctual or late? Do you finish things within the time you stipulate? Do you hand in your reports/work on time? Are you able to accomplish what you want to do before deadlines? Are you a good time manager?

                                    If your answer is “no” to any of the questions above, that means you’re not managing your time as well as you want. Here are 20 time management tips to help you manage time better:

                                    1. Create a Daily Plan

                                    Plan your day before it unfolds. Do it in the morning or even better, the night before you sleep. The plan gives you a good overview of how the day will pan out. That way, you don’t get caught off guard. Your job for the day is to stick to the plan as best as possible.

                                    2. Peg a Time Limit to Each Task

                                    Be clear that you need to finish X task by 10am, Y task by 3pm, and Z item by 5:30pm. This prevents your work from dragging on and eating into time reserved for other activities.

                                    3. Use a Calendar

                                    Having a calendar is the most fundamental step to managing your daily activities. If you use outlook or lotus notes, calendar come as part of your mailing software.

                                    I use it. It’s even better if you can sync your calendar to your mobile phone and other hardwares you use – that way, you can access your schedule no matter where you are. Here’re the 10 Best Calendar Apps to Stay on Track .

                                    Find out more tips about how to use calendar for better time management here: How to Use a Calendar to Create Time and Space

                                    4. Use an Organizer

                                    An organizer helps you to be on top of everything in your life. It’s your central tool to organize information, to-do lists, projects, and other miscellaneous items.

                                    These Top 15 Time Management Apps and Tools can help you organize better, pick one that fits your needs.

                                    5. Know Your Deadlines

                                    When do you need to finish your tasks? Mark the deadlines out clearly in your calendar and organizer so you know when you need to finish them.

                                    6. Learn to Say “No”

                                    Don’t take on more than you can handle. For the distractions that come in when you’re doing other things, give a firm no. Or defer it to a later period.

                                    Leo Babauta, the founder of Zen Habits has some great insights on how to say no: The Gentle Art of Saying No

                                    7. Target to Be Early

                                    When you target to be on time, you’ll either be on time or late. Most of the times you’ll be late. However, if you target to be early, you’ll most likely be on time.

                                    For appointments, strive to be early. For your deadlines, submit them earlier than required.

                                    Learn from these tips about how to prepare yourself to be early, instead of just in time.

                                    8. Time Box Your Activities

                                    This means restricting your work to X amount of time. Why time boxing is good for you? Here’re 10 reasons why you should start time-boxing.

                                    9. Have a Clock Visibly Placed Before You

                                    Sometimes we are so engrossed in our work that we lose track of time. Having a huge clock in front of you will keep you aware of the time at the moment.

                                    10. Set Reminders 15 Minutes Before

                                    Most calendars have a reminder function. If you have an important meeting to attend, set that alarm 15 minutes before.

                                    You can learn more about how reminders help you remember everything in this article: The Importance of Reminders (And How to Make a Reminder That Works)

                                    11. Focus

                                    Are you multi-tasking so much that you’re just not getting anything done? If so, focus on just one key task at one time. Multitasking is bad for you.

                                    Close off all the applications you aren’t using. Close off the tabs in your browser that are taking away your attention. Focus solely on what you’re doing. You’ll be more efficient that way.

                                    12. Block out Distractions

                                    What’s distracting you in your work? Instant messages? Phone ringing? Text messages popping in?

                                    I hardly ever use chat nowadays. The only times when I log on is when I’m not intending to do any work. Otherwise it gets very distracting.

                                    When I’m doing important work, I also switch off my phone. Calls during this time are recorded and I contact them afterward if it’s something important. This helps me concentrate better.

                                    13. Track Your Time Spent

                                    When you start to track your time, you’re more aware of how you spend your time. For example, you can set a simple countdown timer to make sure that you finish a task within a period of time, say 30 minutes or 1 hour. The time pressure can push you to stay focused and work more efficiently.

                                    You can find more time tracking apps here and pick one that works for you.

                                    14. Don’t Fuss About Unimportant Details

                                    You’re never get everything done in exactly the way you want. Trying to do so is being ineffective.

                                    Trying to be perfect does you more harm than good, learn here about how perfectionism kills your productivity and how to ditch the perfectionism mindset.

                                    15. Prioritize

                                    Since you can’t do everything, learn to prioritize the important and let go of the rest.

                                    Apply the 80/20 principle which is a key principle in prioritization. You can also take up this technique to prioritize everything on your plate: How to Prioritize Right in 10 Minutes and Work 10X Faster

                                    16. Delegate

                                    If there are things that can be better done by others or things that are not so important, consider delegating. This takes a load off and you can focus on the important tasks.

                                    When you delegate some of your work, you free up your time and achieve more. Learn about how to effectively delegate works in this guide: How to Delegate Work (the Definitive Guide for Successful Leaders)

                                    17. Batch Similar Tasks Together

                                    For related work, batch them together.

                                    For example, my work can be categorized into these core groups:

                                    1. writing (articles, my upcoming book)
                                    2. coaching
                                    3. workshop development
                                    4. business development
                                    5. administrative

                                    I batch all the related tasks together so there’s synergy. If I need to make calls, I allocate a time slot to make all my calls. It really streamlines the process.

                                    18. Eliminate Your Time Wasters

                                    What takes your time away your work? Facebook? Twitter? Email checking? Stop checking them so often.

                                    One thing you can do is make it hard to check them – remove them from your browser quick links / bookmarks and stuff them in a hard to access bookmarks folder. Replace your browser bookmarks with important work-related sites.

                                    While you’ll still checking FB/Twitter no doubt, you’ll find it’s a lower frequency than before.

                                    19. Cut off When You Need To

                                    The number one reason why things overrun is because you don’t cut off when you have to.

                                    Don’t be afraid to intercept in meetings or draw a line to cut-off. Otherwise, there’s never going to be an end and you’ll just eat into the time for later.

                                    20. Leave Buffer Time In-Between

                                    Don’t pack everything closely together. Leave a 5-10 minute buffer time in between each tasks. This helps you wrap up the previous task and start off on the next one.
