Fixing your to-do list at the start of the day helps give you a clearer picture of your impending errands. It will also help you focus on your tasks in an organised manner, since you can easily spot which tasks are more important and which need to be done ASAP. Remember, a three-minute exercise is really all you need!

De-clutter your space

A clean desk or workspace reduces stress from rummaging all over the place and inspires creativity. So if you’re finding that your space is becoming too cluttered, take three minutes to throw out all the things you know you don’t need and properly arrange your desk.

Fuel your energy level with liquids

Lastly, staying hydrated contributes to your health. When you are dehydrated, your energy level goes down. Without the energy, how do you expect to accomplish your goals for the day? So take that three minutes, make drinking water interesting again with a refreshing glass of fruit-infused water, and tank up – we promise, you won’t regret it.

Your overall look doesn't end with your makeup and clothes. How you style your locks contribute a lot to the vibe you're going for, and we all know that your best bet for most occasions is to either let your hair loose or opt for a simple ponytail.

So if you're getting tired of the ponytail but would still want to keep the effort to a minimum, here are some classy hairstyles you can easily cop.

Messy bun



Giving more of a chic feel as it highlights your face completely from all angles, the messy bun is a versatile hairstyle to go for any occasion.

We use our lips to communicate verbally, but do you know that our lips can make a visual impression too? Our lips – literally and figuratively – say more than a thousand words. It can give away tell-tale signs of your health, and even reveal your personality without having you to speak.


Needless to say, your lips play an important role when you interact with people, especially so when you are on a date. After all, it’s always nice to end the evening with a good night kiss, don’t you think? Ahead, avoid making any of these three lip boo-boos the next time you go on a date.

Lip Boo-Boo #1: Chapped Lips

Imagine this: your date reaches in for that good night kiss, and instead of the anticipated thrill, you’re feeling incredibly conscious about your rough, chapped lips – not exactly a confidence booster. When the lips lose their moisture, they become chapped, and chapped lips can spoil your complete dress-to-kill look.

Mind you, it’s not just about looking great. Sporting a pair of attractive, kissable pucker is a sign that your lips are in a healthy condition. That’s why nothing is better than taking good care of yourself – or your lips, for that matter – while looking good. The Estée Lauder New Pure Color Envy Oil-Infused Sculpting Lipstick taps on the hydrating power of essential oils to nourish your lips into plumped-up, sensual perfection.

If your lipstick smells less than fresh on your lips, we say, the best rule of thumb is to ditch it. Sad but true, but some lipsticks just don’t smell as pretty as they look. An unpleasant lipstick scent, like the smell of old crayons, could also be a sneaky reason why your breath stinks even though it probably doesn’t.

Smearing on smelly lipstick on a date is a lost cause, so make sure you’ve got the right lipstick look – and the right scent – nailed down. Cue the Pure Color Envy Oil-Infused Sculpting Lipstick. Its exceptionally light and delicate vanilla scent will make you feel, look, and smell like heaven.


Lip Boo-Boo #3: Wearing one lip colour for all occasions

It’s okay to own a signature lip colour, but we think it’s always more fun when you get to play with diversity for every outfit, occasion, and mood.

Learn to embrace more lipstick shades than one. From nudes and pinks to reds and plums, with 12 shades to choose from, the Pure Color Envy Oil-Infused Sculpting Lipstick puts the fun – and the right colour – in putting your whole look together.
