We’ve included seven of them to get you a week’s worth of envious looks from public bystanders.

    1. Do the relaxed vacation look with fun shoes like celebrities Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl

    Each of you should grab plain cotton button-down, long-sleeve shirts in your respective perfect blue hues. Those with very dark hair or very tanned and dark skin tones should go with lighter, brighter shades of blue. Those with blonde hair or fair skin look best in medium to navy shades of blue. Whoever loves their jeans the most should wear them, and your partner can wear nearly any color and style of pants they like since this color scheme is very versatile. Finish the look with matching sneakers in the same bright color.

      2. Take the best Christmas-morning photos with complimentary pajamas

      Just admit it: When you look at the sweet photos of actress Kristin Bell and her hubby Dax Shepard by the Christmas tree in their matching pajamas, you smile. How can you not? Recreate this joyful holiday romance in your own home by getting your own coordinating plaid or striped PJs. Rather than matching exactly, one of you can wear it in a green color while the other wears the same style in red. Now you’ve got the perfect outfits for your next pajama party too.

        3. Be the classic “fashion-fabulous” power couple in spring or summer with coordinating white bottoms

        First, ladies can wear any white skirt of your choice; we prefer the perfect pencil skirt that flatters your body type and flares in the right places when needed. Then top it with a white button-down shirt or any neutral-colored casual shirt and finish with white heels.

        For him, first, it’s important for men to protect any long-sleeved polo or dress shirt from sweat or deodorant stains by wearing the best undershirts for men that fit and feel like a breathable second skin. For example, you can find undershirt options that help wick moisture away to keep men feeling dry and cool while also staying in place all day. Then, he’ll add his best business-casual shirt and top it with a navy-blue or neutral-toned sports jacket or vest. Finish with white pants, and you’re ready to hit the town together like James Bond and his favorite supermodel.

          4. Rock the new “Grease Lightning” look together like Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

          Ladies, plaid “jeggings” or skinny jeans are especially hot in patterns of red, white and black. Then pair them with your best-loved red shirt; the ’50s-style cut is optional. For him, it’s easy to match you as long as he sticks to white and black colors only in his complementary outfit. Of course, we love the final polish of a black leather jacket to bring out his bad-boy side.

            5. Sunbathe in matching surfboard beach shorts

            Bring fun fashion to the beach with matching shorts that look cute on her and handsome on him. Both pairs have sexy and casual black waistbands with a comfortable drawstring fit that flatters every waistline, mimicking the common style of men’s briefs. While the fabric patterns are the same, hers are short and foxy while his are knee-length trunks for full coverage while surfing. All she needs is a matching bikini top, and he can wear his go-to tank top when you two stroll down the boardwalk.

              6. Create custom-printed matching jerseys that make a clever sentence together

              Naturally, this idea is even more enjoyable when you both love the same sports team and get jerseys in your team colors. However, you can also just buy plain gray jersey shirts with black stripes, which look good on everyone. This alternative neutral color can also be a good compromise if you both like opposing sports teams too. Bring your shirts to a custom-printing T-shirt shop, and one of you should start the sentence of your choice on your shirt, and it will end on your partner’s shirt. A favorite for spouses is:

              Him: “I stole her heart … ”

              Her: ” … so I’m stealing his last name.”

                7. Dress as the dynamic aviator duo

                Ever since the press caught Eleanor Calder and Louis Tomlinson from the band One Direction in these complementary casual outfits, we’ve fallen in love with this carefree-chic look that shows just how cute you and your partner can be together without overdoing it.

                Start by both of you putting on a pair of jeans, but pick different colors in medium-to-dark shades of blue, black, or even brown. Then for men, slip on a Raglan T-shirt with mid-length sleeves or any other T-shirt that shows off your pecs that’s in either white, blue, gray or beige. Ladies, slip on a button-down shirt that’s sleeveless or short-sleeved in any color that’s not neutral, a shade slightly brighter than your mate’s shirt. Finish it off with matching aviator sunglasses, and you’re ready to walk through the park with Starbuck’s drinks in hand.

                Now that you’re both cleverly coordinated with each other, you know what time it is. Pull out your smartphone and take those romantic couple selfies! You can also go old-school style and jump in a photo booth together because, after all, being in love makes everything more fun.

                50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                If you’re like me and really into self-development, you’ve probably read many of the thousands of self-help books out there on the market. But also like me, you probably find all the information a bit overwhelming.

                That’s why I wanted to do the self-less task of taking the most important, life-changing lessons I’ve drawn from these books and condensed them into fifty key points.

                Here’re 50 habits of highly successful people you should learn:

                1. Believe It to See It

                Our minds tend to focus on what’s happening around us and refuse to see what could happen. Only when you trust in what’s possible and dare to dream big, big things can happen for you.

                2. See Problems as a Wonderful Gift

                While others only see problems and give up, successful people use the problem as a lesson to find improvement in themselves or the task at hand.

                3. Keep Looking for Solutions

                Even if they’re knee-deep in problems, successful people will still put all of their focus on finding solutions.

                4. Remember It’s All About the Journey

                Successful people are conscious and methodical in creating their own success. They don’t sit around doing the bare minimum, hoping success finds them.

                5. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

                There’s so much fear on the road to success, but instead of letting that fear control and limit them, successful people do a good job of just forging ahead regardless.

                6. Always Ask Productive Questions

                It’s all about asking the right questions. Successful people make sure they are questions that will elicit information for a more productive, creative and positive mindset moving forward.

                7. Understand the Best Waste of Energy Is Complaining

                Successful people know that choosing to see the negative side of things will only create a useless and unproductive state.

                8. Don’t Play the Blame Game

                Taking responsibility for actions and outcomes is a form of empowerment that you can build your success upon. While the act of blaming others or outside circumstances takes this empowerment away from you.

                Advertising

                9. Maximize Your Strengths

                Not every successful person is simply more talented than the rest, but they do use what they know they’re good at to achieve more successful results.

                10. Be in It to Win It

                Successful people are busy, productive and proactive. Instead of sitting around over-thinking and over-planning a great idea, they just take a step towards it no matter how small.

                11. Know That Success Attracts Success

                People who are successful surround themselves and seek out like-minded people. They understand the importance of being part of a team and forge win-win relationships.

                12. Actually Choose to Be Successful

                Dreaming big is a massive part of being successful even if your dream seems impossible. Ambition is a mindset that needs to be a daily conscious choice.

                13. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize!

                You’ve got to see your success in your mind’s eye even before it comes. Successful people clarify and get that certainty about what they want their reality to look like rather than being mere spectators of life.

                14. Be a One-Off Original

                Successful people look for what’s working and then create a unique spin on it. Imitating only regurgitates other people’s ideas with no originality.

                15. The Perfect Time to Act Is Now

                Waiting for the right time to act is basically procrastination wrapped up in an excuse. Successful people know there’s never a perfect time so they may as well just do it now.

                16. Keep Learning, Keep Growing

                Continuous learning is the key to a successful life. Whether it’s academic, being a student of life or actionable learning, it’s all about expanding your knowledge and personal development.

                17. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

                Successful people have the knack for finding positive aspects in all people and circumstances no matter what.

                18. Having a Bad Day? Do It Anyway!

                We all have bad moods but it shouldn’t be an excuse to stop everything. Giving into a bad mood just stop-starts your life, slowing success way down.

                19. Sometimes Risky Business Is Needed

                Calculated risks are a must for success. It’s about weighing the pros and cons while moving forward with that element of trust.

                Advertising

                20. Accept Challenge All the Time

                Dealing with problems head-on is a must to be successful. Successful people also face challenges in order to improve themselves.

                21. Make Your Own Luck

                In the mindset of a successful person, there’s no such thing as ‘luck’ or ‘fate’. They take control to actively and consciously create their own best life.

                22. Ignite Your Initiative

                While many people are reactive, successful people are proactive – taking action before they have to.

                23. Be the Master of Your Emotions

                Being effective at managing emotions is key on the road to success. That’s not to say successful people don’t feel like we all do, but they’re just not slaves to their emotions.

                24. Champion in Communication

                Consciously working on effective communication skills gets anyone closer to success.

                25. Plan Your Life Strategically

                Successful people’s lives aren’t a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes, they methodically work at turning their plans into a reality.

                26. Become Exceptional at What You Do

                To become exceptional, you typically have to do things that most won’t. To become successful, hard decisions need to be made and acting on them is crucial.

                27. Choose to Live Outside of Your Comfort Zone

                While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, successful people understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

                28. Live by Core Values

                Successful people firstly identify their core values and what’s important to them, then do their best to live a life that reflects these values.

                29. Realize Money Isn’t Everything

                Money and success are not interchangeable and the most successful people understand this. Putting money on a pedestal and equating it to success is a dangerous mindset to have. Success comes in many forms.

                30. Don’t Get Carried Away

                Successful people understand the importance of discipline and self-control and as a result they are happy to take the road less travelled.

                Advertising

                31. Self-Worth Is Not Tied to Success

                Successful people are secure. They do not derive their self-worth from what they own, who they know, where they live or what they look like.

                32. Kindness Breeds Kindness (And Success)

                Generosity and kindness is a common trait among long-term successful people. It’s important to take pleasure in helping others achieve.

                33. More Humility, Less Arrogance

                Successful people are humble and happy to admit and apologize for mistakes. This is because they’re confident in their ability. They are happy to learn from others and happy to make others look good rather than seek their own personal glory.

                34. Change Opens New Doors

                People who are successful are adaptable and embrace change, while the majority are creatures of comfort and habit. They are comfortable with, and embrace, the new and the unfamiliar.

                35. Success Requires a Healthy Body

                It’s not just how you think, it’s about how you show up for success. Successful people understand the importance of being physically well, not for vain reasons but because being in tiptop condition creates a better personal life for success.

                36. Laziness Just Doesn’t Exist

                Successful people are never considered lazy. Yes, they can relax when they need to, but working hard is their game.

                37. Resilience by the Bucket Load

                When difficulty strikes, most would throw in the towel, but successful people are just warming up.

                38. Feedback Is Just Another Chance to Improve

                How people react to feedback determines their potential for success. Being open to constructive criticism and acting on it to improve is most seen in those who are successful.

                39. Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

                If people are hanging out with toxic and negative people, then they need to take a look at themselves. Successful people hang out with others who are positive and supportive.

                40. Can’t Control It? Forget It

                Successful people don’t invest time or emotional energy into things which they have no control of.

                41. Swim Against the Tide

                Successful people are not people-pleasers and they don’t need constant approval from others in order to move ahead.

                Advertising

                42. Alone Time Is Valuable Time

                More self-worth means being more comfortable with your own company. Successful people are more happy and see the value in spending time alone.

                43. Self-Standard Is Higher Than Most

                Everyone has a choice to set high standards for themselves. Successful people do this, which in turn produces greater commitment, more momentum, a better work ethic and of course, better results.

                44. Failure Isn’t Rationalized

                While many use age, health, lack of time, ‘bad luck’, or lack of opportunity to explain away their failure, the key to success is finding a way to succeed despite facing these challenges.

                45. Down Time Is an Important Part of a Routine

                Having an off switch and taking time to do things that make them happy is a common trait of a successful person. Take a look at here The Importance of Scheduling Downtime.

                46. Career Isn’t Who You Are, It’s What You Do

                Successful people know their career isn’t their identity. They are multi-dimensional and don’t define themselves by their job.

                47. Be Interested in Only the Path of Resistance

                While most people look for the easiest way or the shortcut, successful people are more interested in the most effective way. They look for the course of action which will produce the best results over the long term.

                48. Follow Through

                Many spend their life starting things that they never finish, but successful people get the job done. Even when the excitement and the novelty has worn off they still follow through and finish.

                49. Invest in All Your Dimensions

                We’re not just physical and psychological beings, but emotional and spiritual creatures as well. Successful people consciously work at being healthy and productive on all levels.

                50. Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

                To obtain success, it’s important to practice what you preach. Successful people don’t talk about the theory, they live the reality.

                So there you have it, a summary of what I’ve learned from self-help books. But of course, you need to start taking actions so you will get closer to success too.
