Secrets for the “just right” Bra

Okay Ladies,

We have all heard the story of the three little bears… Well I’m going to relate this young children’s story to bras.  Goldilocks was trying on a bra and the first one was too tight, the second one was too loose, and the third bra was just right. 

Rules for the “just right” bra:

1.) There should be no space in between the cup and your breast.

2.) In the back there should be no back flab hanging over and under the bra strap.  

3.) There should be no extra lump in the top of the bra where your ladies should be covered, but they are overflowing out.  

4.) When trying on your bra, always put your shirt on over it to make sure you avoid the Madonna cone breast and make sure you like the cup shape. Make sure you look in the mirror at both the front and side profile.

5.) Have a professional fit you!

We are telling the secret about our all time favorite bras… “Busted”!!!

Victoria’s Secret all the way baby.  This is the one item in my closet that I splurge for. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Such is particularly true when it comes to Victoria’s Secret bras. They have always been great about accepting returned bras and they fit you to your bra size upon request. Love it!

  • If you like push up bras the Bombshell is my all time fave: 
  • If you don’t need push-up and are about comfort Body Perfect Coverage would be a good choice for you. 

We hope this helps you as you look for the perfectly fitting bra for you. What a perfect time to go bra shopping with Valentine’s Day just around the corner. ?

Smokin Smokey Eye

Hi friends,

Today we are learning how to create a gorgeous smokey eye. Anytime I do this type of eye makeup application my husband (yes, you read that right) always notices. Without fail he mentions how pretty my eyes look, making me feel like a million bucks!

Beware, you may have complete strangers come up to you and tell you how stunning your eyes look. Yes, this does mean you still got it!

We felt this was a must see, so there are two different videos. The first video explains how to do an everyday smokey eye. The second video tells how to do a more dramatic smokey eye for nightlife or special occasions. After watching the videos, checkout this list of similar products you can use along with prices and links for where you can purchase them.

Get your Drink On!

Why water??? Have you ever wondered why experts say it is so important to consume half your body weight in fluid ounces daily? For example if I am 160 lbs I would need to drink 80 ounces of water daily! Check out this article to see what the health benefits are of drinking enough water.

Small health changes in life make BIG differences!

The Polished Pearls Sista’s Water Tips:

  • Start your morning drinking a glass of water 15 minutes before eating. This helps cleanse your body naturally and assists in avoiding high calorie consumption.
  • Anytime you are feeling like you have the munchies or are hungry, drink a glass of water and wait a few minutes before eating. We often confuse hunger with thirst.
  • Have a water container handy at work, home, in the car, etc. Make sure you know how many ounces your container is in order to keep track of how many ounces you’ve consumed.

So, get your drink on!!!

Posh and Profess

Hey Guys,

Check out our outfit of the week!  This super cute cream blazer goes with just about anything.  I love blazers because they can dress an outfit up and they are extremely flattering.  Pendant necklaces are a must.  I love how this pendant necklace adds detail to my outfit.  These gray colored skinny jeans are great because they are quite versatile (Flying Monkey brand is my favorite).  My beige tied wedge shoes are comfy and cute.  I feel more dressy when I am wearing a heel and these I can wear all day without discomfort!
