Why should you buy a scarf?

Have you ever walked outside on a chilly morning, firmly holding your jacket in place to keep you warm while your teeth chattered? Have you ever walked on the pavement during traffic and been exposed to exhaust fumes and so much pollution and dirt, and could do nothing but try to cover your face with your hand to stop it from affecting your skin and your lungs? Have you ever gone to somewhere sunny and had to cover your head with a paper to save yourself from a migraine?

Well have you ever thought of owning a scarf?

A scarf is a great solution to all these situations. Scarves are so versatile. They can be used in so many ways that could help you look both look trendy and smart.

A scarf is simply a long piece of clothe that you can use as part of your clothing. Some would wear it on their head, while others might prefer to use it around their neck.  How you use it is up to you but let me tell you why should buy a scarf.

They provide a statement in your outfit

When you see two people approaching you, one is wearing a scarf while the other is not, chances are if the rest of the outfit is the same, you would look at the one with the scarf. That’s because scarves capture attention. When you see a scarf, you automatically look at it. This can be used to your advantage.

If you choose a bold scarf, people might feel that you are interesting. You are someone who knows your stuff and is confident while of course being willing to be just a tad bit crazy. A dainty floral pattern might say that you are a very kind and gentle person who sees beauty in life. One with abstract patterns would indicate you are adventurous and daring; you don’t fit into a box.

They are good for you

Scarves are not just fashion statements. When you wear a scarf, you are actually doing good for your body. A scarf around your neck helps keep your neck and chest warm. This means you can avoid catching a cold and falling sick. The warmth also helps keep your throat clear and healthy. If your neck feels cold for a prolonged period of time, you would find that your throat would start becoming sore. This can be an immense problem if you depend a lot on your voice, say you work as a teacher, a doctor or even a singer, you are going to need your voice. So keeping your throat healthy is important and what better way to do this than wrap a scarf around your neck.

So make sure you buy a scarf. It is good for your health, it is immensely beneficial in a variety of situations, you can say a statement with it and you would look awesome wearing one. So what are you waiting for?  Go buy one.

How to choose the best nail polish?

Have you ever looked at your finger nails and wondered why you can never seem to find the right shade of polish. You would have seen many people rock shades that you cannot even dream of wearing. You may have even been invited- without your consent- to a session of chat over nail polish. You might have felt awful hearing people brag about their polishes. You may believe that you would never find a good nail polish that suits you.

If that’s what you believe then it’s to change that thought. You can definitely find a nail polish that suits you. Trust me. The following would help you find it.

Find out your skin’s undertone

Skin tone plays a huge role in the way colours look on you. You may have sometime seen, a person looking like a circus clown wearing a shade that does not suit them one bit. Chances are, that circus clown might have even been you. To avoid this problem, you should first understand what your skin tone and undertone is. chances are you probably already know the former. One look in the mirror might tell where in the colour spectrum you fall. However of course due to the way society thinks about colour and your own notions about it, your prediction might not always be right. Therefore you can consult with a professional as to what skin colour you have.

Figuring out the undertone though can be done with the help of a professional but you can do it too. Skin undertone tone is divided into three types; warm, cool and neutral. The undertone can be identified by looking at your vein, if it looks green then it is probably a warm tone, if it looks blue then you are looking at a cooler tone. If you can’t find out which one it is- then you are probably neutral.

Cooler, less bold colours like baby blues, and berry red generally suit the cool undertone, whilst shades such as peach or midnight blue might look good on warm tones.

Try the tester always

Before you buy a product always test it in good lighting. When you trust a product, you can see if it matches your tone. Most of us generally do test the product however we might not do it with adequate lighting. When you test the product in a brightly lit environment, you can truly see the shade. This would help you understand how the product actually looks on you. Sometimes when you check the product in dull lighting, it might look fabulous on you. However once you come home and check it with brighter lighting, you might realize it look atrocious.

In the end, choosing nail polish is not difficult. Just be willing to try out many shades- do not buy them, just test them-, and you will find the perfect polish. Then of course you can show off your pretty nails, the next time people start bragging about their nails.
