Ask any woman and she’ll tell you that she has a ritual of sorts to help her prep for a first date with a new man. Personally, I did everything that made me feel sexy in order to have the best time possible. Here are the 5 must do’s to prep for a hot date, featuring one of my favorite clothing lines, Stretta. Here are some great tips that have the potential to become habits whether or not you’ve got dates lined up. Remember that the most important thing is to take amazing care of yourself. These tips will leave you feeling confident and sexy.
1. Eat Well
There’s nothing worse than feeling sluggish – or worse – sick during a date. Avoid these situations by minding what you eat not only the day of, but the days leading up to your date. Love your body by feeding it well. Organic, fresh food will instantly make you feel amazing. Indulge in delectable salads and juices. Shy away from hormone-laiden meats and dairy. Your body and mind will thank you for it.
2. Shake Your Ass
Nothing calms the nerves better than a good, heart-racing exercise session. Move that body! Get some cardio in. Dance around your apartment in your underwear if you have to. Chances are, your date is at night and I know that going for a run or shaking your ass in Zumba class will get your juices flowing and will spike your energy. Let’s not forget to mention the residual, happy effects of endorphins!
3. Shop for a Gorgeous, Curve Hugging Dress
There is always a good excuse to go shopping. Getting ready for a hot date is no exception. Whether online or from a boutique, treat yourself to dress that celebrates that hot body of yours! I have one word for gorgeous, curve-hugging dresses: Stretta. The fabric and silhouette of the gorgeous pieces from Stretta are the creations of Anastasia. Celebrate your feminine form and feel sexy for your date in a hot little number from one of the fastest growing names in fashion. Read on below for your chance to win a stunning dress from Stretta.
4. Pamper Your Skin
I once had a friend who got so worked up about prepping for her first date, she forgot to shower. Don’t do that to yourself. Ladies, this goes without saying. Pamper your skin before a night out. Soak, shave, wash, use that fantastic moisturizer. Drink lots of water. Use a natural exfoliant and you’ll see glowing results.
5. Wear Your Confidence
You don’t need a date to exude confidence. You don’t even need a man, for that matter. Take care of yourself and this will come naturally. Remember that you’re absolutely phenomenal! There is no one else on this planet like you – celebrate that. Your uniqueness is what snagged you that hot date, so celebrate it. You have no excuse to not wear your badass confidence. Rock it. Own it. Walk into that room like you own that place.
