#DIY: How to Tie a Tie the Quick and Easy Way!!!

A tie is a very powerful and manly accessory. It delivers a message of seriousness, business, professionalism, and surely success. The tie can definitely make the man.

As of lately, the tie has become an accessory for women. There should be no surprise that women are interested in the culture of the tie because women are also looking to deliver the same powerful message as their male counterpart, but women are also in love with the many details that make a tie very beautiful. Ties come in an array of colors from the bold and bright to the muted and pastels; the wonderful textures of fabrics that include silk, satin, and the luxurious cashmere; let’s not forget the countless patterns of paisleys, dots, geometrics and stripes.

If you are a woman that thinks that a tie is just to masculine to wear, think again. There are a few ways to make the tie soft and feminine while still keeping its masculine and powerful edge. There are many simple ways to make a tie more feminine and one is to complement a fitted turtleneck sweater with a silk tie.

Not sure how to tie a tie? Here is a step-by-step guide to tying one of the simplest knots known as the “Four In Hand”. This knot is not just easy but it is classic and chic.

Step 1

Place the tie neatly on the neck, front side flat. The wide part of the tie should be longest, and the thinner part of the tie should be touching just above the belly button.

Step 2

Cross the wider part of the tie over the thinner part of the tie.

Step 3

Wrap the wider part of the tie around the thinner part of the tie one time.

Step 4

Wrap the wider part of the tie around the thinner part of the tie for the second time.

Step 5

Pull the wide part of the tie up through the neck of the tie which is closest to your shirt.

Step 6

Take the wider part of the tie and slide it through the hoop which is in the very front of the tie–pull through.

Step 7

Pull and adjust the tie to your comfort. Make sure to keep the neatness of the tie. It should be lying flat.

Your finished!!!

Your knot will look just like this which is perfect. The slight slant in the symmetric is normal for the “Four In Hand Knot”.

Doesn’t the tie give a very fashionable look to the sweater? It is really cool and swank!

Will you be wearing the tie trend? Will you pass?

SHOPPING: Buying Mom the Perfect Christmas Accessories!

Mom… No better word to describe such a remarkable woman. She has been there from the beginning to the end; she has seen it all and heard it all and more than likely worn it all. Nothing is foreign to her. She has conquered some of the dirtiest smelliest diapers, endured long sleepless nights, survived some of the worse fashion trends in history, and to top it all off… she has dealt with all emotions known to human! So, the least we can do is give her the perfect gift for Christmas to show her our appreciation.

What is the best accessory and how do you choose it?
Here are 5 of the best accessories you can get for the MOM in your life!

An Over-sized Black Bag- One of the best accessories to give mom is an over-sized bag because a bag is her world, literally. In her bag holds everything she needs during her fast moving life (i.e. diapers, etc.)and getting a large one allows her to have everything she needs.  Getting a black bag is a plus because it will allow her to match it with any of her outerwear and be fashionable while doing it.

Tory Burch Foundation Sunglasses

Large Shades-A mom is bound to be up all night sometimes caring for her loved ones; keeping the family happy and healthy. Sometimes the effects of being up all night is tired eyes. Help mom cover her peepers with a swanky pair of shades. Some of the best shades are over-sized. This is a gift that mom will love.

Fossil Virginia Three-Hand Stainless Steel Watch

A Fashionable Watch-Mom lives by the ticking of the clock. From dropping kids off to school, to running to the next business meeting, mom has no time to waste. Select a gorgeous watch that fits mom’s taste and she will surely fit you into her busy schedule.

Chic Comfortable Flats- Mom is always on the move and at a fast pace to get around almost everywhere. High-heels are not always fitting to her lifestyle so flatter her with a pair of fashionable flats.  Stylish flats are awesome for the woman who is a true Fashionista and the woman that loves to wear a pair of jeans and a tee. The right shoes can make most outfits dashing! Mom will appreciate you for it.

Wallet- This vital item is in every mom’s pocketbook. It holds all her most important information and everything else she needs safe and protected. Get the mom in your life a great leather wallet with plenty of compartments. This is a thoughtful gift that each time she pulls it from her over-sized bag, she will think of you.

What are some of your best gifts for mom?
