1. Put deodorant on...AT NIGHT

So, if you’re American, then odds are that you wear deodorant (at least we all hope). However, do you notice that sometimes that doesn’t help? Or that you still..smelly smelly? WELL, putting it on at night allows the deodorant to tackle the issue while you’re asleep, slap another coat on before you go out (even after showering) and you should be better off.

2. AIR FRESHENER/INCENSE

You can place a $1 air freshener in your room, bathroom, living room, wherever else, and you’ll have cheap way to increase the general ambience of your living quarters. Because perhaps your house/room doesn’t smell that bad...but an air freshener/incense can only help.

3. PERFUME/COLOGNE

Investing in some cologne or perfume will give you that extra boost of deliciousness for a day of smelling GOOD. Plus, people love complimenting people that smell good...so why not go fishing?

4. STOP SMOKING CIGARETTES

These things are gross and stink, so if you have found yourself using them..I know it’s not easy, but consider trying to stop. Even if it takes months, just trying is worth it. Plus, your breath, clothes, car, house, and anywhere else you normally smoke will smell SOO much better.

5. USE MOUTHWASH

Okay so you brushed your teeth...that’s not enough! You should also use mouthwash and floss. We don’t all do this, but if you want to be FRESH..then maybe start doing it.

6. DRYER SHEETS

Ya know those obnoxiously smelly things that go into the dryer, guess what..they make your clothes smell amazing. You already knew this, but have you been doing it? If your goal is to truly smell better, then it’s worth the extra few bucks to purchase them.

7. SHOWER IN THE MORNING

Showering at night can definitely be easier and more relaxing for bed, so do you. However, if you want to be fresh as can be for the start of your day, I recommend taking the extra time to shower in the morning.

8. WEAR SCENTED LOTION

If you don’t have any allergies or sensitive skin, then try using scented lotion to get that extra whiff of smell good around you. Coconut lotion tends to be a good neutral smell that most people find pleasant.

9. MINTS

Invest in a bowl, put some mints in it, put it right beside your door, and every day when you leave for wherever it is you go, grab one!

Enjoy a 2018 with fresher air, and less nose pinching.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

Sometimes it is hard to come up with a really cute outfit. I can't even recall all the times I've stood staring at my clothes blankly, had no idea what to wear, or the days I've changed what feels like a million times. I know this isn't just a me problem, so to combat this issue, I turned to the endless fountain of style inspiration that is Instagram, and trust me I was not disappointed. In order to save you the time and effort of wading through all the defunct or dead-end accounts on Instagram related to style (trust me, there are way too many), I've compiled this list of some awesome, active accounts for style inspiration for a couple different style types. Hope you find your perfect style inspiration!

1. French/Classic Style - ​@parisianvibe​

This account is a personal favorite of mine and is perfect for anyone looking to be inspired by or capture that classic, "French girl style." Classic, European style never gets old, and even the nontraditional outfits posted are to die for. This account has an awesome blend of seasonal outfits, gives credit to the original posters, and even links some of the pieces shown. So if you're looking for a timeless, chic look, this account is definitely a go-to.

2. Streetwear/Modern Style - @wuzg00d

Alania Figueroa is a professional dancer and also has one of the best female streetwear accounts on Instagram. She is constantly pulling off crazy colors and patterns and manages to look effortlessly great while doing so. This account is perfect street style inspo, for both laid back and more out-there street-inspired looks. When you're looking for some out-there, extremely trendy looks, this is the perfect account to scroll through.

3. Southern/Preppy Style - @byhilaryrose

Hilary Rose Elrod's account perfectly embodies the super popular Southern or preppy style. Her style reminds me so much of college girl boutiques, and I can definitely see the inspiration for super popular, easy to recreate trends in her cozy, yet perfectly put together style.

4. Vintage 70's Style - @70sbabes

What better way to embody '70s style than to get inspired by actual '70s icons? There are a lot of Instagram style accounts dedicated to trying to recreate all types of '70s looks, but you won't get better inspiration then from the icons themselves. With style icons of all corners of the decade being posted on this account's feed, you're sure to never run out of that perfect vintage inspiration for your next outfit.

5. Bohemian Style - @bohostyle

Bohemian style has been a huge influence on the trends of the last couple years, and I think this trend still has a lot to offer. This account is perfect, not just for its name, but for the variety of outfits it has to offer. This account does not just adhere to the classic or overused aspects of bohemian style, but brings a lot of different elements and new aspects to the trend that are sure to inspire you, no matter the occasion.

6. Minimalist Style - @clothedinabundance

Minimalist definitely does not mean basic with this account. If you're looking for inspiration to create really cute looks with wardrobe staples, this is the account to go to. She is constantly reusing pieces and making really gorgeous, easy to recreate looks that are perfect for everyday. Bonus: Her account also focuses on mental health and motivation, so you won't just find style inspo, but also some personal inspiration as well.

Style really is a personal thing, and for every person it's different. I really love all of these accounts for their abilities to showcase their own personal styles or an aesthetic. In scrolling through their looks and style, you will definitely find yourself inspired to really build on your own personal style and what makes you look and feel good. So, definitely check out these accounts before your next frustrated encounter with your closet, and see what kind of gorgeous look they'll inspire you to create.
