b.tempt’d review | intimates for every woman and every occasion

Wispy laces, modern silhouettes. I had been in need of an intimates refresh, and this season’s updates came with all of the upgrades one could desire. While fashion selects are often redefined each season, one must never forget to keep their underthings in order. There’s something empowering in being completely put together. For me, that starts from body to soul, and each layer that we choose to dress ourselves in. In this b.tempt’d review, I will touch on an assortment of essential pieces that I’ve integrated into my lingerie collection, and how each serves a different purpose in my personal and professional lifestyle. First, let’s talk about some key elements every woman should consider when selecting their delicates – fashion and function When wearing bras, both comfort and style must be considered. I can be quite utilitarian with my fashion choices.

Even the most beautiful pieces in your wardrobe can go unworn; no matter the deal – it’s not worth it. Ask yourself: Is this style truly me or …

minimal style capsule wardrobe essentials

items from my wardrobe I always re-wear over and over

The absolute chaos, hangers pressed so tightly together you could get blisters from pulling them apart – we all know what it feels like to have too many pieces crammed in our wardrobe. And, as much as we like the idea of a truly minimalist wardrobe, sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. If you’re trying to create some extra space, I’ve shared a few of my hacks for minimizing to a capsule wardrobe. But one of the most important factors we often overlook, is: Don’t purchase items you’ll rarely wear in the first place. Let’s be honest.

In some ways, the silence feels even louder than the havoc a normal day might bring. Think about it. The first experience we have in the morning is jolting awake to a ringing alarm. If we dare silence it, we face it yet again. In my case, the cat is also screaming. The alarm works as her notification it’s time to harass mom clawing at her face for some morning affection. Checking emails, texts, social notifications all happens next. We’re bombarded with notifications of happenings in those few …
