D.I.Y ---- LOVE COUPONS,, ---

It was my Hubby's birthday, and i was in deep thought what to give him, I wanted it to be special and unique with that personal touch,,, ( touchy feelings,) heeee heeee ... lol ... OK ..... so i pondered and pondered.... no avail,,, then as usual were having a petty fight on the TV remote, then thought that should give the poor soul(not literally) (he is a sweet devil)... he ll say otherwise,,,, ;p... the remote... i should give him one complete day of being a king ,,, and doing whatever he wants and thus thought over it and tada the idea of love coupon emerged... went online to get more ideas,, and many of them were on sale too, but as i want what i want,, being the self proclaimed creative female,,, decide to channelise my energies in creating it myself.

ok i agree it sounds corny and too mushy , but wait till your spouse gets their hands on it, it will light up their eyes and get that instant big smile which will keep on widening as the coupons go on.
P.S -  Its an addiction, lol ,, do not forget to apply strict conditions like non reusable and as per your rules.
Redeem the coupon one at a time.

They make for a perfect Birthday or anniversary gift , valentines also or any special occasion of yours.

Things you will require.

  • scissors, glue, colored pens
  • colored paper
  • plenty of imagination, creativity and naughtiness,
  • Stapler
and plenty of ideas.................

I will give you some and let your ideas run haywire;p

make rectangles of same size and write out one love thing it is redeemable for... decorate them the way you like it ... then punch a hole in them and tie them up with a ribbon... tadaaaa your love coupon book is ready... gift pack in a nice cute small box and present it to him or leave them one by one in the place he least expects it.

Celebrate Curves

After the stick thin size zero ruling the roost on thr runways and the fashion scene for a long time, finally the fashion scene is getting a change.

Curvy and more fuller figures are back in business by demand ;p
big bust big hips with narrow waist are making their come back like the good old yester years stars like Marlyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Mumtaz, Neetu singh and so on.


Stars like Lindsay Lohan, Jlo, Scarlett Johansson,Vidya balan, Nigella Lawson, Aishwarya Rai,Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore,Beyonce, Neha Dhupia,Salma Hayek,Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Love Hewitt are already flaunting their well endowed hour glass figure.


An hour glass figure demands fashion and clothes to make the body look more beautiful by defining the curves rather than take away from the beauty of this figure.

  • dress for the size you are and not what you were, be comfortable in your body.
  • Dress from the inside out. A well-fitting bra and shapewear will camouflage all lumps and bumps.
  • Clothes should skim your body, not cling to it avoid tight fitting that doesnt mean you wear baggy. 
  • Think high-waist,
  • wide trousers, 
  •  A-line or flared skirts.
  • Don't cover your curves! Big clothes on big bodies only make you look bigger.
  • Skirts should end just before or under the kneecap. Your legs will look longer.
  • Shorter, fitted jackets will also flatter your legs—and waist.
  • Avoid elasticized waistbands. They might be comfortable, but they add bulk to your midsection.
  • Keep necklines open. A deep V- or scoop neck lengthens your neck.
  • A dress with a belt will cinch you in, focusing attention on your smaller waist.
  • Wide feet need to be counterbalanced with wide heels. A thinner heel only draws attention to your wider foot.
  • sharp, tailored clothes 
  • Pencil skirts,
  •  fitted jackets 
  • strapless dresses
  • feminine styles suit such body structure rather than todays boyish, androgynous styles.
  • Deep v-neck sweaters,
  • tight fitting blouses
Lets look at the styles well endowed women should sport.

v neck, one shoulder, fitted jackets

    Dress with belt , cinching in the waist , to add to the curves and grab attention to the small waist.

high waist pencil skirt just below the knee with a feminine well fitted blouse
