My girl friends often ask me to help them pick the perfect date outfit. It’s hard, I find women often over think. Today I am going to share with you a few tricks to make it easier to find a perfect outfit for a date.
1. Lady in Red
Did you know, that men are most attracted to the colour red? The little black dress is safe but sometimes it is too boring. Men are not looking for a boardroom buddy on a date. Be adventurous and put on the sexy red dress. Researchers at New York’s University of Rochester found that men believe women wearing red are more likely to respond to their advances. Don’t forget to wear red lipstick.
2 Don’t be the one who wears the pants
According to a research by University of Hertfordshire, women who wear a dress or a skirt seem more confident and successful, furthermore in the men’s eyes, a dress or skirt shows off our sexy and feminine side.
3. Put on your heels
I love flats. You know I wear my Ferragamo flats every other day. Unless you are going to walk or play sports, put on a pair of heels. It is not the time to look conservative like his mother, bring out your sexy side. Men didn’t invent heels for no reason.
4. Show a little skin
Keep in mind you only want to show some skin not too much. Show some legs and arms. Try to avoid low cut or a short dress. Researchers from University of Leeds have revealed the optimum amount of skin to have on show is 40 per cent if you’re looking for a lasting relationship.
5. Pay attention to your hair
Did you know? The first body part men notice is your hair, they like it long and worn down. Spend time to style your hair but don’t overdo it, make it look effortless!
6. Tone down the makeup
One in five men think their partner wears too much make-up. Less is more.
7. Wear what you feel comfortable in
I find a lot of my friends spend a crazy amount of money buying clothes for a date. Most men cannot tell the difference between Chanel and H&M. It’s sad, and you need to accept it. It’s not worth investing a lot of money buying new clothes for a date and it’s never a good idea to wear new clothes and shoes on a date either. You don’t know what to expect – find something you feel comfortable wearing and rock it. If you don’t feel comfortable, a designer outfit won’t make it better.
To help you on your journey to find the perfect date outfit, my friends at eHarmony CA are giving away a $250 CAD Aritzia gift card. They’ve been matching singles across Canada for years so know a thing or two about dates.

I am known for my first world problems. I don’t like cheap shoes. I don’t like wearing polyester . I don’t eat fast food. I don’t drink beer, only wine, champagne, vodka, rum….pretty much everything except beer. I know I won’t change the way I dress. I can’t change the way I eat. But maybe I can try to change what I am drinking to look less like an uptight brat with expensive taste.
What is going to make me blend in with a group of people who love beers. I am sure it is not a bottle of my favorite champagne. I need something taste like champagne but in a beer can. Recently I found Tempt Cider, a brand of alcoholic cider that combines the sweetness of strawberries with a subtle hint of tart lime that is available Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland, and Ontario. If you like fruity drink like me, this drink is a must. I am planning to stock it up :D.
The nice people at Tempt Cider reached out to me and gave me an awesome $150 prize pack to giveaway.
· A case of Tempt Cider (24 cans)
· A mask
· A $50 gift card to Victoria Secret
· Two Tempt Cider branded glasses
· A Tempt Cider branded iPhone case
· A Tempt Cider branded chapstick.

You know my love affair with Google. A while ago, I really wanted to test an Android phone and Rogers was kind enough to lend me a phone to play with. The HTC One X made my iPhone looks like an ugly duckling. Who knew the iPhone would have this day. The HTC One X was like a couture dress and my iPhone was a thick, small and heavy H & M dress.
Beautiful phone + an OS that allows me to customize= Heaven
I really love the phone and my kind friends from Rogers offer to giveaway a HTC One X to one lucky reader from Canada. It was hard to say no .
Here is a contest for you guys. You know you want this sexy smartphone :)
Good luck gorgeous.
