What would you wear on a night out to a casino?

ginger casino What would you wear on a night out to a casino?Certain places one attends require a certain form of dress. This dress code may be unwritten or as with the case of casinos it can also be written. Most casinos have established dress codes that provide guests with guidelines for suitable clothing. These codes can also vary according to the time of day. Many casinos will have different requirements for evening wear. Some people may ask why go to the effort when you can play online casino games from the comfort of your home at, however for those of us who are more interested in a good night out than a gamble it can be worth taking some time to determine this information prior to dressing up for an evening out in the casino. It can save some possible embarrassment later on.

Formal wear is not needed when attending the casino in the evening. A woman’s best bet is to pair a casual clothing item with other formal pieces. This is known as a smart casual style of dress. Not only does it look great, it does provide a certain level of comfort which many women appreciate when playing casino games. For instance, if a woman chooses to keep most of her outfit casual, then she will definitely want to add a sports jacket to dress it up. Accessories can also be helpful in pulling off a smarter look. You could add a beautiful scarf, pin or other jewellery. Selecting one accessory is ideal to avoid one from looking over done.

Shoes are another crucial part when dressing for the casino. These venues will often not permit flip-flops to be worn so do not try wearing them. Good quality smart shoes made out of either leather or suede are ideal. Plain oxfords look nice. When choosing your shoes, select a pair that is comfortable. This would obviously mean avoid wearing stiletto heels. Casino going does require some walking and wearing uncomfortable shoes can really spoil one’s night. You want to be able to concentrate on your playing without thoughts of achy feet distracting you.

First Bra to Detect Breast Cancer Out This Year

breast exam black woman 785x442 First Bra to Detect Breast Cancer Out This YearOctober is just around the corner and this means it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month once again in Ireland and all over the world. Every year, there are about 48,000 new breast cancer cases and close to 1,000 deaths every month in the UK alone. Many women who get diagnosed find out about the disease only after doing a mammogram test or screening exam and it’s about time that there’s this new bra that aims to predict if a woman is at risk of breast cancer. The Breast Screening Tissue Bra created by First Warning Systems aims to detect any abnormal changes in your breast tissue even if they’re just minute formations. The company claims that it can detect early signs of breast cancer even before you perform a self test or make a doctor’s appointment for a mammogram. The company also claims that mammograms results are often inaccurate. For example, in about 48 million diagnoses, only one million result in biopsies thus rendering two thirds of all results negative for breast cancer. Although this bra is set to be released next year in the US, it’s already out in Ireland and Europe this year. Even more so, lingerie companies across the UK and Ireland especially mega-store Marks & Spencer are already heavily involved in supporting Breast Cancer Awareness via Breakthrough Breast Cancer not only during October but also during their Fashion Targets Breast Cancer campaign in April to May. Since 2001, Marks and Spencer have raised over 17 million that is pivotal for Breakthrough’s intensive research, tenacious campaigning and valuable education. There’s also a donation made to the charity for every post surgery bra that’s sold which is happening all year round in all branches. Another UK and Ireland based company called Censory Lingerie that sells plus size risqué lingerie also strongly supports the cause by offering a new line of sexy mastectomy bras and ultimately donating 10% of the profits for Breast Cancer Awareness Month as well.

POSH & Functional, Tips for Post-War Metro Wardrobe w/Space

lille tesco POSH & Functional, Tips for Post War Metro Wardrobe w/Space For most of us, closet space is always limited, especially in post-war NYC and beyond. When spring comes around and its time to throw out the old and bring in the new, it can be very hard to decide which clothing pieces should make a trip to the dumpster and which should maintain their privileged position on the hanger.

As some are constantly moving, often times from country to country, learning what items to keep and what to chuck is essential to remaining trendy without wasting space or money. In general, functional yet spacious wardrobes save us space and the best way to gain function and space is to organize your wardrobe in a way that suits your style and daily clothing needs.

There are a few things to keep in mind when beginning the process of cleaning out your wardrobe. These three tips will help you on your way to a simpler and space saving wardrobe that is in style and on budget.

1. Is that dress Stella McCartney?

Not all jackets, dresses and shoes are made equal. In most cases, the more money you spend the better quality you get and quality means longevity. Keeping designer items is a good idea for three reasons.

Firstly, these items are often classically styled, especially if in colors such as black, dark brown, camel, and navy blue. The brand oftentimes is not as important as the item itself. Clean, simple lines and patterns ensure that the item will keep you looking trendy into the future.

Secondly, fashion is cyclical. The quality of these items will see them last until they come into fashion again, usually with the added chic of vintage flare.

Thirdly, these are beautifully made items you spent your hard earned money on and they mark an important moment in your fashion evolution so give them the due they deserve.

2. Have you worn that shirt in the last 6 months?

If you don’t wear an item in your wardrobe then don’t keep it, especially if it isn’t designer. Retailers like H&M, Forever 21 and Topshop often sell very trendy items that play on a very specific style of the moment. These items last for a season or two but, when finished, should be replaced with the next big thing.

3. Who are you dressing up for?

Clothes for work, weekends and going out on the town all take up space. Its important to think about how much time you spend doing different activities. Our lives change and we stop doing activities that we once did regularly leaving a pile of unused clothes in our wardrobe. If you have a lot of evening clothes but don’t go out or dress up, then its time to make space by relieving those party dresses of their hangers.

Keep in mind that functional yet spacious wardrobes save us space by eliminating the clutter of unused and undeserving items. So now to the spring cleaning!

Talk to Your Boyfriend About Sports, Aside from Mentions of Players You Would Date

The Silver Linings Playbook Talk to Your Boyfriend About Sports, Aside from Mentions of Players You Would Date

Sports aren’t my favorite thing. And if you’re reading this, they probably aren’t yours either. Hey, I get it. I don’t understand the appeal of watching a group of grown men or women in unflattering uniforms go out of their way to maim each other. Nevertheless, it’s likely a part of your partner’s life, and it’s about making compromises. Right?

Let’s just say it is.

Every now and then, you have to throw in the towel (first sports pun of my life…sort of) and set aside an afternoon for a sports session with the guys. Here are a few tips to help you through:

1. Start with a positive mindset. You’re not going to help anyone (least of all yourself) if you can’t even entertain the idea of being present. Don’t text, don’t roll your eyes, don’t ask “Is it over yet?” This is your boyfriend’s hobby, so don’t belittle it.

2. Do your due diligence. Is it a match or a game? Know the difference. Get comfortable with sports terminology. Are we dealing with runs, goals, touchdowns? Getting a head start is always a good idea — it’ll be infinitely better for everyone if you don’t ask how many innings there are during first pitch. A good way to get some context and stay involved is to follow your team on Twitter.

3. On that note, try not to chirp in with too many questions during the game. Have you ever gone to a movie with a friend only to have her constantly bug you about what’s going on? “Wait, why did that happen? Did that character die? I think that’s his father!” Picture that, but a thousand times worse, especially if there’s a beloved team involved. I’ve known friendships that have ended because a goal had to be caught on instant replay instead of being experienced in the moment.

4. Show some spirit! Find out which team your man supports, and embrace those colors! You don’t have to go too crazy with it – body paint is hard to put on, and even harder to get off. Try an eyeliner or lipstick that incorporates his team’s colors. If makeup isn’t your thing, a team accessory will also work!

5. When all else fails, make a game out of it. There are plenty of sport-specific drinking games that you can play. Ask your man, he’ll be more than happy to share. Try to stick with “Drink when this event happens” games as opposed to sports trivia, or you might not make it through the night.

Make the experience fun in a way that both of you can enjoy it, and you’ll open up a part of his life that you can be involved in. Best of all, he’ll associate his favorite hobby with you. At the end of the day, you’ll at least have earned yourself some serious brownie points for trying. Try it once, and let me know if you scored that night — sports pun intended.
