5 Style Tips To Look Simple And Low-Key

5 Style Tips To Look Simple And Low-Key

Nobody wants to be bright and bold all the time. There are days when we want to be just plain and simple, and go about our regular activities. Sometimes we do not want to see people staring at us. Not that we do not like attention, but there are just days when we want space and just to be with ourselves. If we could wear a hat over our whole face, we would do it just so nobody recognizes us. These are the days when we do not want to be bothered, and all that we want is space and privacy.

The need for privacy is not reserved for Hollywood stars and famous people. Needing space and quiet is a natural need of every human being. Think of how some people avoid going to public places where they know they would bump into people that they know. If you are planning to be low-key, follow these simple tips:

1.) Don’t use bold, dark makeup.

Stick with nude colors if you want to look simple. No dark browns or bold reds. Also, use only light lipstick if you will play up with your eye makeup, or use light eye make up if you will wear a lipstick. Better yet, stick with a lip gloss or nothing at all. A bare face is better for staying low-key.

And do stay away from thick foundations. They tend to make people stare at you to make out if they recognize you or not (subconsciously), despite your thick makeup.

2.) Keep clothes comfortable. Don’t wear anything complicated or too revealing.

Don’t sacrifice comfort for trendy. Choose clothing based on how comfortable and easy they are to wear, instead of how glamorous they make you feel.

If you are wearing an article of clothing that catches attention, your need for privacy goes out of the window. So avoid crazy patterns, shining colors, elaborate details, or complicated ensembles. Stick with simple, plain and basic clothes like tees and jeans if you do not want the extra attention.

Revealing clothes are a magnet for attention, too, so cover up if you are avoiding unsolicited attention.

3.) Avoid big and flashy jewelry.

Flashy jewelry tends to be stare-magnets. When people see flashy jewelry, they tend to stare at the jewelry to admire it, or they tend to look at the face of the person that is wearing them to see who is wearing them.

If you are not wanting any public attention, avoid wearing too much jewelry, since the sounds it will make while you are moving can draw attention.

4.) Ditch the high heels and wear only comfortable shoes.

High-heeled stilettos draw attention in three ways. They are nice, they make people wonder how the person wearing them is able to walk 10 feet, and they are often worn in inappropriate places. So don’t wear them if you know you will be walking a mile away, or if you know you will be watching a grade school baseball game and will staying on the side of the field.

5.) Wear outerwear that protects, not ones that are just for show.

When it is time to choose outerwear, choose one that protects, and not one that is just a fashion statement. An example is choosing a thick and baggy jacket that can keep you warm, instead of a thin, form-fitting material that does not really do what it is supposed to do. For example, if choosing between a high-heeled pair of boots that does not really do much for protection against slips on ice, or a pair of thick and heavy winter boots that might not be as elegant-looking but protects from slips, choose the latter.

By nature, humans are curious species. If you give them something interesting to look at, they will want more information about it. So if you want a low-key appearance, don’t give them anything too flaunting, daring, or attractive. Keep yourself natural-looking.

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.
