What to Do When Your Spouse Gives You Side Eye before Bed

We’ve all had this happen to us, but many times, we ignore it or are too tired to do anything about. You are dressed and getting ready to go to bed, and your partner gives you a strange look. Sometimes, it is subtle, and other times, it is not so subtle. Sometimes, it’s just a little side eye, and sometimes, it is a full-on “What the hell are you wearing?” expression on their face. And sometimes, you want to scream, “So what if I am dressed like the woman that feeds the pigeons in Mary Poppins? Feed the birds, tuppence a bag!” But you don’t care because you are comfortable and so tired that you just want to go to bed.

If you have been given the side eye from your partner often, you may want to rethink what you wear to bed or maybe you just need some outfit ideas for bedtime. I was recently given some advice by my hairdresser who was newly engaged (for the third time). As this was her third go at marriage, I asked what she had learned and what advice she had for me. She said sometimes you’ve got to dress cute and sexy even if you are at home. I internally rolled my eyes and thought, “Isn’t that some anti-women’s movement rhetoric? Should I also make a pot roast every night and mix him a drink when he gets home?” But as she continued talking, I thought that there might be some truth to her words. I mean, usually, when I wear my lingerie is also when I’m sick (I have a fever and need to cool off). They won’t show that on the cover of the VS catalog!

She wasn’t saying that I need to dress up as a Victoria’s Secret model every night to go to bed (those wings would be uncomfortable to sleep in). But every so often, you might want to swap some sex appeal into the routine. If most of us really think about it, after being in a relationship for a while you, dress differently. In the beginning, it was sexier and a little more playful. Eventually, you trade in your Victoria Secret night gown for the Victoria Secret Pink sweats. (They are so comfortable, and they are right there when you walk in the store). So I decided to make a change and wear comfy sweats one night and then switch to something more playful. This small change in habits can yield many outfit ideas for bedtime.

I noticed a difference in myself. Sometimes, I actually slept better because I was wearing cooler clothing and fabrics. An unintended side effect of changing up my outfit ideas for bedtime. My husband noticed (he made several comments about my attire). It made bedtime a little more fun. I got to think, “Hmmm, what should I wear tonight?” I started by buying more colorful and fun PJs, and I liked it. Some are sexy, some are not, but none of them are the bag lady from Mary Poppins. And I no longer got the side eye from my husband. I guess I could always use my former sleep attire as a Halloween costume. Now, I just have to learn the words to “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”

8 Tips to Help You Choose a Cute Outfit for Sleep


But I’m too tired to look cute! Why do I need to look cute? Everyone’s eyes are closed! Yes, those are very convincing excuses to just fall into bed in whatever you are wearing and look like the victim in the opening scene of a Law and Order
 episode, but don’t you deserve to have nice things? Don’t you deserve to have actual pajamas that are pretty?

Choosing to have a cute outfit for sleep is something that you do for you. You remember “you,” don’t you? You know—that thing at the bottom of your to-do list. If you have issues with self-worth or self-esteem, what better way to “love you some you” than to give yourself a cute outfit to go to bed? It is just for you, seen only by you, and it can change your life.

As Arianna Huffington says in her book, The Sleep Revolution, her yummy pink pajamas became her favorite sleep aid. They became a signal to her body to shut down. You mean you get a cute outfit for sleep and then get better sleep? Yep!

 

Use the tips below to up your pajama game for a better night’s sleep and just to have a cute outfit for sleep.

 

  1. Choose blue – Do you know that in a recent survey by Travelodge, people that slept in a blue room got the most sleep? So why not try blue pajamas? What are the room colors that came in second? Moss green, pale yellow, and silver.
  2. Use the slumber party test – If I was invited to a slumber party, would I wear this outfit to look cute while hanging out with my girls? If so, good job! You may proceed to Slumber Land.
  3. Think back to when you first started dating someone. Is this what you wore to bed, or was it something a little sexier?
  4. Does what you are trying to wear to bed have a hole or rip in it? If so, go back to the drawing board. You deserve better sleepwear.
  5. Does what you are going to wear to bed have a stain on it? If so, go back to the drawing board. You deserve sleepwear that doesn’t smell like French vanilla creamer.
  6. Are your pajamas so cute that they make you want to start singing, “Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee?” (For those of you who are unaware, this is a reference to the slumber party scene from Grease.)
  7. Are the garments you are wearing to bed older than Paris Jackson? This means you were rocking these same items while dancing to the “Remember the Time” music video. Get rid of them.
  8. Oversized is good because a loose fit is comfortable, but if you’ve dreamt that you were drowning and woke up tangled in your oversized t-shirt, you need to toss that shirt and get a cute outfit for sleep.

 

To make a cute outfit for sleep, it is good to know what your sleep style is. Are you the tomboy, the minimalist, the girly girl, or the athlete? Our pajama game web series can help you with your sleep style.

Career Corner: What You Need to Craft a Real Estate Marketing Plan

A marketing plan is the best way to take your business to the next level. Once created, a business typically looks to seek customers for its product. An effective method of making people aware of your product is through marketing. Marketing essentially means showing off your product and its specifications to the public. Through marketing, a business is able to get its message across to the public for the chance of potential new customers. Marketing properly is very important for any business, an example of improper marketing method being PEPSI’s Kendall Jenner ad fiasco. Forming a marketing plan is the best way to ensure that your business is marketed properly. In the real estate market, a thorough real estate marketing plan is what any business needs to succeed.

Here’s how you can develop such a plan.

 

Consider your goals

The initial step in developing a marketing plan is to think about what you want your business to achieve. Your goals are the backbone of everything your business does. Hence, a business needs to check its goals in order to craft a marketing plan for achieving those goals. This step is extremely crucial for any new business looking to market their services.

 

Check your previous performance

This step is highly crucial for running businesses that are looking to craft a new marketing plan or revamp their older one. Such businesses need to assess their performance and compare it to what they want to achieve. If they are not meeting their goals they must figure out a marketing plan that can help them achieve those goals.

 

Determine the appropriate medium

Marketing and advertisement can be done through a number of different mediums. It is essential to know which medium fits your needs and is appropriate for the message you want to give. Every medium has its own advantages, therefore choosing one of them can be arduous but it is essential.

 

Draft a schedule

While your real estate marketing plan is something you construct for a long period of time, it is essential to have a proper schedule within it. You must know when to release advertisements or newspaper fliers, in correspondence to new and old services you might be promoting.

 

Refine your words

Word choice is of utmost importance while marketing. Since through marketing businesses are essentially communicating with their customers, the choice of words matter a lot. Not only should your words relay your message and the merits of your services in a lucid manner, but they should be constructed in a way that the public finds positive and good-natured. Any words that might be contextually negative are a huge turn off for many potential customers. You must know what to say and how to say it.

 

Check results

After putting your marketing plan into motion, check the results regularly to see if they are having an effect or not. Constantly look out for any shortcomings the plan might have and work on improving them.
