Tip 19 of 20 Chilly Legs Meet Hot Trends

Take fashion-advantage of the chilly weather by sporting the latest trend in legwear: Over-the-knee socks are cute, sexy and warm! Layer the socks over tights for extra warmth. For an edgy look, layer fishnet or lacy stockings under the socks.

Tip 18 of 20 Dough!

Cooking is sexy. Baking is sexy. Grab your cute apron (you have one, right?) and go for it. Cooking is so much fun, and can be so relaxing! Schedule some time to bake with your kids, or with your bff. Get down and dirty with the dough. Knead it, create something yummy. Bring me some Christmas cookies, please!

Tip 17 of 20 Corset Behavior

Do you own a corset or bustier, but never find a time to wear it? Or have you always wanted to buy one, but don't feel confident you would actually use it? Wear it outside the house!

Don't feel compelled to restrict your corset to the boudoir. Wear it out over a skirt or jeans! You are a hot property, both inside and outside of the bedroom.

Tip 16 of 20 Shop Local

Happy Holidays is my goal. Each year I feel a mix of trepidation and exhilaration as the end of November approaches. I love the holidays! I love gift-giving! I love shopping! What I don't love: pressure, stress, drama, and a host of other holiday-related angst that comes along with the next month.

This year, I am simplifying and shopping local. Admittedly, there will always be things I have to go online for, or possibly (dread upon dread) to a mall for. But shopping locally makes me feel like I am giving in two ways:
1. I am supporting the small businesses around me, which feels amazing and I wish I could do more often.
2. I am finding small, quality gifts instead of a mass of generic, bath&body style pre-packaged gifts.

Plus, everyone loves opening a box from a small shop. It makes them feel more special, which is the best gift of all.

Tip 14 of 20 Matchy-Match

Pay more attention to your underwear. Be attentive to the bra fitting properly, and try to match your bottoms (at least vaguely) to your bra most days. An easy way to do this is to stock up on bottoms that match your bra colors.

If you tend to wear black bras daily, purchase lots of black bottoms (multiple styles and labels) to match effortlessly.

When you buy a special color bra (teal, orange, pink floral) make sure to buy two matching bottoms--because you may wear your bra two days before washing it, but not your panties!

Tip 13 of 20 Feng Shui Your Lingerie

Dress for the love life you want, not the love life you have.

If you are single and want a date, wear your best lingerie each and every time you leave the house. You will send subliminal signals out in to "the universe"--watch what happens! If you are in a relationship and want more affection, pay more attention to your underwear. Warning: You may start attracting those other than your partner!

Tip 12 of 20 Date Night

If you have a date night or girl's night out within the next week, wear thigh highs! Make sure to buy the kind that have silicone on the top, so they won't slip while walking or dancing. Thigh highs add sexiness to any outfit and will promote new confidence. Who knew?

Here is a fabulous tutorial on the difference between thigh highs and stockings. (Thank you My Boudoir of San Francisco!)

Tip 11 of 20 Sweet Dreams

Wear something beautiful to sleep in tonight. Toss the sweats, the mismatched pjs and fun-run shirts--opt for something that makes you feel pretty.

Tip 10 of 20 Intention Invention

Fantasize about something you want and don't have in your life right now. A new car, a man, a mentor, whatever. Think about exactly what you want in your life. Write it down and put it somewhere you will see it every day.

Tip 9 of 20 Clean your Drawers

Let's clean out your underwear drawer! Don't pretend that you aren't alarmed by what lives in there. Underwear you would rather die in than be resuscitated wearing.

Step 1: Empty your panty drawer on to your bed or floor.
Step 2: Make two piles: 1-those with stains or holes, 2-the rest.
Step 3: Throw away pile 1! You need not be tempted to ever reach for those panties, again!
Step 4: Replenish your underwear drawer by treating yourself to some new, pristine panties from your favorite shop or brand.
(ahem, Bellefleur perhaps?)

Your welcome!

Tip 8 of 20 Today is the Greatest

Have you ever heard the phrase "Our Greatest Gift is the Present"? Well, I am giving you permission to have amnesia today. Take a day off from the past. The good, the bad, the ugly, it has little to do with what you can make happen today.

If you woke up and didn't know who you were, who would you be? --Jenism

Tip 7 of 20 Game Over!

Unless you are planning on playing a sport, you should not be wearing a sports bra! They do nothing but restrict the movement of your breasts, pressing them in to a boob omelet--not a tasty look!

If you can't stand underwire in your bra, opt for a supportive soft bra sans wire. Game on!

Tip 6 of 20 Yes WoMan

I recently heard Joan London speak (cool woman!), and she touted the attitude of "yes". If she hadn't said yes to the fortuitous offer of being a weather girl, she wouldn't have been on television, nor a beloved, household name.

So, say YES! If anyone offers you anything today, say yes. No matter what.

Refill of coffee? Yes, please.

Spare a quarter? Why not.

Can I take you to dinner Saturday night? Sure!

Take a job in Paris? Oui!

Tip 5 of 20 Knicker know-how

Find the raciest panties (read: hot & sexy!) in your panty drawer and wear them today! Don't save them for a rainy day!

Although, considering we are in Seattle, it probably is a rainy day!

Tip 4 of 20 Make out!

Make out with someone today!
I am not talking about a peck, or quick kiss.
If no one is available, fantasize about your best kiss ever--the kind that makes your body tingle just thinking about it. Enjoy the serotonin!

Tip 3 of 20 Sweet Set-Up

Wear a matching bra and panty set today. All day.
Do you feel more confident?

Tip 2 of 20 Say Cheese

Smile at everyone who you see or meet today. Including yourself! It is impossible to be in a bad mood when you are smiling. It's true! Try it. See what happens.

Tip 1 of 20 Keepin' it Real

Be Authentic.
Today, if you find yourself playing a role at work, school, or even at home, stop. Stop "acting" and be real. Be yourself. See how different and wonderful it feels!
