How To Look Glamorous for a Party Without Breaking the Bank

How To Look Glamorous for a Party Without Breaking the Bank

Looking beautiful, fashionable, and glamorous for a party or a night out with friends does not need to be expensive. If you got invited to a party, you may think that you do not have anything to wear or the right makeup to use, but do not fret. It only takes using what you probably already have, or perhaps what a friend has, and getting creative. Small purchases of makeup or inexpensive jewelry can also go a long way in creating the look you want. Here are things that you can do to achieve a glamorous look without the expense:

Try out old outfits that are in your closet

Instead of buying, consider using clothes that are currently in your closet. Sometimes, we buy too many new clothes and we forget about the older ones we already have. There might be a dress there that you bought two years ago because it was on sale, you just never had the opportunity to wear it. Or you simply forgot that you have it!

Borrow from a friend

If you really do not have anything to wear and do not want to spend, it is okay to ask a close friend if you could borrow a party dress. Your friend might have something that is just sitting in their closet, or vice versa, you may have something that you can offer for your friend to borrow in exchange.

There is no need to go to the hair salon

If you want to style your hair like a Hollywood celebrity, you really do not have to go to the salon. All you need to do is to look online for hairstyles that you like and practice doing them on your hair a few days before the party. Practice makes perfect!

Buy drugstore makeup

If you find that you want to buy new makeup for just one night of partying, you do not need to buy an expensive brand. There are a lot of drugstore brand makeups that are good quality yet very inexpensive. Just look online for good brands with positive reviews.

If you already have the makeup, mix and match for different colors

If you already own make up, but you are looking for a particular shade of color that will work for you, you do not really have to buy new ones. All you have to do is to mix and match the colors that you already have. For example, if you wear one shade of lipstick on top of another, the result will be a different color or a different shade (pink plus red for a muted red effect).

You will never go wrong with wearing jeans

When all else fails, who does not have at least a single pair of jeans in their closet? For a party, you can wear a pair that you use every day and spice it up with a nice belt or a colorful, trendy top.

Wear your accessories differently

A necklace that you use all of the time can instead be worn as a bracelet for a party. Or wear your rings on different fingers than you normally would, and wear more than one at the same time. Play with your accessories and you will create an image that is different from your plain, everyday look.

Smile and be confident

And most important of all, on top of wearing nice clothes and make up, strut your stuff with confidence and put a dazzling smile on your face. Being beautiful and glamorous, regardless of how you look outside, really starts with how you feel inside. Confidence sure does exude radiance.

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.
