Suggested December 2023 How To Dress In A Gamine Style: 13 Steps (With Pictures)

Gamines have simple hair. The most popular gamine hairstyle is the pixie cut. But not all people look good in this hairstyle, so definitely consult your hairdresser before doing it because it will take time for your hair to grow back. If you want your hair long, it doesn’t matter if it is straight, wavy, bouncy or curly. All that matters is that it is always kept neat. A very gamine-like hairstyle for girls with long hair is the ponytail. You can also wear it with a headband, a silk scarf, a ribbon, a hat (preferably a beret) or a barrette. If the hair accessory is in a pastel color or sports delicate accessories like bows, pearls, flowers hearts or embroidered butterflies, then it adds to the gamine-feel, but don’t feel as though you have to go buy more accessories if they don’t have these things on them.

To get the look:

Gently apply some liquid eyeliner across the top lid, as close to the lash line as possible.

Elongate your eyes the most you can.

After the eyeliner, curl your eyelashes and apply mascara at the top lashes. Done! It is a simple look.

If you want, you can get brown contact lenses too.

Wear little or no eyeshadow and get rosy cheeks (apply blush at the apples of the cheeks only).

Finally, complete the look with glossy lips. Wear pink or peach lipstick or lip gloss.

Lola by Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana, Romance by Ralph Lauren, L’Air du Temps by Nina Ricci, Anna Sui Flight of Fancy by Anna Sui, Gucci Flora by Gucci, Trésor by Lancome, Paul Smith Rose by Paul Smith, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, Joy by Jean Patou and L’Interdit by Givenchy.

For tops, wear: blouses in pastel colors, white button-downs with ruffles, T-shirts with gamine designs and patterns (bows, flowers, butterflies, etc.), pastel polo shirts, striped sailor shirts, cashmere sweaters in pastel colors, cardigans, blazers, cropped jackets, turtlenecks and boat-necked tops.

For dresses and skirts, wear: mini, knee-length or midi-skirts (preferably made of tulle or another flowing material), LBD’s (little black dresses, even better if they have bows or flowers), A-line dresses, baby doll dresses, tunic dresses and sailor skirts.

For pants, wear: blue or black jeans, denim shorts, capri pants, pedal pushers and tailored wide-legged pants.

For outwear wear: trench coats, peacoats, collared coats and capes.

For shoes, wear: ballet flats, kitten heels, black pumps and a pair of heels in a soft color.

Wear pretty much anything that looks sweet, romantic, innocent and childlike.

Designers that carry many gamine pieces are: Christian Dior, Givenchy (his muse was Audrey Hepburn), Salvatore Ferragamo, Chloé, Ralph Lauren (Audrey Hepburn wore his polo shirts while volunteering with UNICEF) Alice+Olivia, Betsey Johnson, Thakoon, Moschino, Burberry, Marni, Marc Jacobs, Nanette Lepore, Chanel (although some of their pieces are too serious and cold for a gamine), Carolina Herrera, Phillip Lim, Jason Wu, Diane von Furstenberg, Kate Spade, Rodarte, Prada, Gucci (named a bag after Jackie O), Miu Miu, Vera Wang and Lanvin.

Cheaper places where you can find gamine-like pieces are: The GAP, J. Crew, Forever 21, MANGO, The Limited, Banana Republic, Zara, Charlotte Russe, Nine West, Macy’s (you can find some designers like Ralph Lauren) and Century 21.

Designers to avoid are: Antik Batik (too bohemian), Pam Hogg (too tough), Dolce & Gabbana (too sexy), Yves Saint Laurent (too manly), Alexander McQueen (too complicated), Juicy Couture (although they have some gamine-like pieces, like charm bracelets and girly clothes; however, tracksuits and neon colors should be avoided), Versace (too bold), Alexander Wang (too street casual), L.A.M.B. (too trendy), Roberto Cavalli and Anna Sui.

Stores to avoid are: Old Navy, Spencer’s Gifts (you will never, ever find a gamine there), Hot Topic, Desigual, Bebe, Sears (if the Kardashians do design collaborations there, then gamines stay away) and Abercrombie & Fitch (half-naked models are not for classy gamines).

For hats: sunhats, berets, fedoras and derby hats. Or any hat that is in a pastel color or has bows, flowers or any gamine-like look.

For hair accessories: headbands, barrettes and hair elastics with charms.

For sunglasses: Wayfarer by Ray-Ban, aviator sunglasses and oversized.

For jewelry: simple and small earrings and necklaces, anything with pearls, charm bracelets, rings with small stones or diamonds and avoid piercings at all times (except at the earlobes, of course, but only have one in each ear). Get a simple watch in a neutral color (or a pastel color) so it will go with any outfit. Don’t get a digital watch, get the classic one.[5]

For handbags: the smaller the better, any simple handbag will do, but a quilted handbag is the best. All the better if they have cute and girly accessories like charms, bows and flowers. For the night choose a clutch and for the day it can be anything as long as it is classic and simple.

Other accessories: thin belts, colorful silk handkerchiefs and anything sweet with gamine decorations is in.

For bras, the paler the color the better. A gamine can wear bras of solid colors (preferably nude and white, or black when wearing LBD’s), soft pastel colors (better if they have some lace of soft shades and/or a bow) and bralettes (if you can). Some very gamine-like patterns of bras that are widely available are the bras with a mini rose pattern and the vertically striped patterned bras. Avoid push-up bras; you’re trying to be innocent.

For panties, opt for boyshorts, bikinis and hotpants (or even granny panties are ok! After all, a gamine doesn’t need to be self-conscious about her panties as she is not the kind of person who sits in a way that shows what is under her skirt). Again, they should not be sexy and you should avoid thongs and g-strings. It is better if your panties match your bra, so make sure that they are at least similar.

For nightwear, silk or cotton pajamas in girly patterns and colors are okay. If you prefer flowing nightgowns, wear negligees (don’t worry, there are non-trashy negligees available too), babydoll nightgowns, nightshirts and silk robes (to wear on top of them). Make sure that they are not transparent (you do not want to show your underwear). Again, the girlier and sweeter, the better.

Although it may seem impossible, there are brands that carry sweet and innocent undergarments and nightwear. Cosabella is a great option and they are known for providing seriously comfortable underwear and nightwear. You can also find non-trashy stuff if you look closely at Victoria’s Secret. If you’re striving to find a negligee or nightgown that is not trashy, pay a visit to Nordstrom, they carry nice negligees of different brands and designers. You should definitely avoid Agent Provocateur and La Perla.

Learn manners and the rules of etiquette. Begin with Emily Post’s book on etiquette (Manners) and find suitable etiquette blogs to keep abreast of the changing manners in society.

Always try to be charming and pleasant to be with.

If you’re dressing up as a sweet and innocent girl, don’t act like a bombshell. Be as naive as you can be.

Gamines always have poise. If you have poor posture, fix it.

Gamines are always smiling a genuine smile.

Gamines are respectful and never break the rules.

Gamines are classy and ladylike, yet they still have a playful and light side.

Gamines have a wide vocabulary and they never swear (in public). Improve your vocabulary and use it to say what you really mean.

Gamines always think of others first.

Gamines always try to be as happy as they can and look at the bright side.

Gamines are the happily charming girls all girls secretly want to be like, but not in a way that they are hated––more like admired and loved.

How To Cook In Jail: 7 Steps (With Pictures)

Your tray will usually consist of a piece of meat, a piece or two of bread, a piece of fruit, and a vegetable. Now that you know what you’re working with, you see why it’s important to learn to cook your own food in jail.

Make spicy beef ramen: make the noodles, drain off the water, add the seasoning pack. Then cut up a beef stick, a cheese stick, crumble a handful of spicy chips in it, and season with hot sauce to taste. It’s really pretty good.

A lot of times, several inmates will all bring a ramen soup and one extra item, combine them in one large goulash and then divide it up evenly. It’s as much a social event as it is a way to eat.


Use hot water to cook with. Since most often you won’t have access to microwaves or other forms to cook, hot water is the best option for jail or prison cooking. If this is not available, then warm water is at least hopefully available. Usually, you can purchase a plastic bowl with a lid from the canteen as well. You put your noodles in this, add hot water, put the lid on, and then take it to your bunk and cover it with bedding and a pillow to hold in the heat. This method is usually pretty effective, and after 10 minutes or so you have your ramen.

Try other things. For example, save your boiled egg from your breakfast tray, combine mayonnaise packets from the canteen and chop up a pickle from the canteen, and maybe a mustard pack. Save your bread from your lunch or dinner trays, and then you have an egg salad. You can do the same thing with tuna packs that are sometimes available from the canteen.

For example, one person might give you their lunch tray for a ramen noodle pack. But if it’s Sunday, the day you might get, say two pieces of coffee cake and grits and eggs and toast, or biscuit and gravy day, you might be able to get a ramen soup and a bag of chips.

Some of the more popular items from the canteen to trade with are candy, spicy chips, and the king of all jailhouse items, instant coffee. A smart inmate might order a lot of these more popular items, then around the middle of the week when others run out, make loans, for example, give someone a cup of coffee, on canteen day that person owes you two cups.

Use packaging. Another way to cook your goulash is to use a large chip bag, or a clean trash bag, full of hot water, or if not available, put the bag under the warm water in your sink and let it run over the bag for ten minutes or so. If you’re lucky enough to get cornbread, you can collect pieces of this up, mix with a little water, and make a dough up. Use whatever you can find, like a toilet paper tube stuffed tight with toilet paper and wrapped in saran wrap from another food item as a rolling pin to roll out the dough, then wrap your filling (usually a goulash) and let dry, or place in the warmest place possible, to dry it faster. Then you have a large “burrito”.

Volunteer to work in the kitchen, where you have the opportunity to get leftover food.

If you don’t have money on your books, you can do services for other inmates such as laundry, drawing cards for them to send to loved ones, helping out with legal research for their legal cases, tattoo work, haircutting, cleaning someone else’s cell and just about anything else you can imagine.


How To Be A Fabulous Diva: 15 Steps (With Pictures)

Work with your natural hair texture. For example, if you have waves or curls, invest in a curl-defining mousse or cream to keep them pretty and to prevent frizz. Or if your hair is naturally straight, use a straightener in the morning and a shine spray to keep it from becoming limp and lifeless.


Dress in flattering and gorgeous clothes. You should always wear clothes that fit you. Not too big, not too small, not too long, and not too short. If you have a slim figure, wear jeans or even if you have a curvy figure wear long skirts. And always make sure that your clothes are clean.

Try going for silver or gold jewelry. Try rings, necklaces, bracelets, (etc.) to bring the best out in you. But don’t try to put on too much or it will look tacky.

Shine your skin. The first thing people look at is your face, which means you should have great skin. Buy a body lotion for your arms and hands. Wash your face with a mild wash, tone it, and moisturize it. If you have acne try seeing a doctor if the results do not show within 3 months. Don’t forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water (64oz.) a day to help your skin glow and to get rid of toxins. Exfoliate at least twice a week.

Keep your nails pretty. Make sure that they are healthy. If not, people will be turned off easily. If you want to hide it then get them done at a salon. A nice French manicure or whatever helps you find your inner diva.

Stay healthy. Last but not least, you want to keep your insides as well as your outsides clean. Eat lots of fruits and veggies. Drink water very often too. And work out 3-5 times a week for 30-90 minutes. This is very important and the golden rule to looking great.

Use makeup if you’re allowed to wear some. Don’t be afraid to get bold with it! Go to the store and buy makeup items (such as mascara, foundation, lip liner, eyeliner, blush, etc.) that you are willing to wear. Each day, wear your makeup differently. For example, one day go for a natural look with lip gloss, and the next day some sparkly eyeshadow. Whatever you decide to do, keep it looking gorgeous.

Wear lip gloss. A true Diva always looks her best and this can be accomplished with a single item. Lip gloss instantly makes your whole face look wide awake and makes you look good without needing a lot of makeup. Carry lip gloss and apply it frequently during the day to maintain your great Diva style.

Bring your inner diva out of you. You gotta strut your stuff, learn to stand up for yourself and never let any haters bring you down.

Become a sassy version of yourself. You have to take some pride and show your personality. But remember to be polite to others. Don’t talk back to your teacher or parents. If you have sass, when you walk down the hall at school or someplace public, everyone should be looking at you.

Be proud of your type! Look up Angelina Jolie, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Denise Richards, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera, and Ariana Grande. These divas are all talented, confident, gorgeous and beautiful, but they all look totally different from one another. They don’t have the same faces, bodies, skin, hair, or style. But they have no problem with it! So, do what you can to make yourself happier about yourself and your hidden talents. In the end, people will notice you for the gifts you bring to the world.


How To Glide Dance: 14 Steps (With Pictures)

Find a smooth, flat surface. A hardwood floor works best when you’re gliding for the first time. You can also use the tiled or linoleum floor in your kitchen. Once you get more comfortable with it, you can use carpet if you have to, but for best results, start with the smoothest surface, which will allow you to glide with the greatest ease. If you have no luck indoors, you can start outside, on a concrete surface such as a basketball court. If you’re indoors, though, you should try to practice in front of a mirror, if you can, so you can watch your own footwork.

Wear comfortable shoes with smooth soles. If you have old shoes with worn soles, don’t throw them out — they’ll be perfect for gliding. You don’t want a shoe with ridges on the soles or a strong grip, because you want to be able to slide along the floor as easily as you can; shoes with a strong grip will keep you from making fluid movements. If you have shoes with smooth soles and a smooth floor, you’re halfway there already. Once you’ve got those things, stand with your feet hip-width apart.


The most important thing to note when you begin to learn to glide is that one of your feet should always be flat while the other foot should always be on its toes or the balls of the feet. You should always be prepared to transition from one to the other.

You should aim for the balls of your feet. If you become a true expert, you can even go for your toes, but for now, this should be just enough. The less of your foot you use, the more impressive your gliding will look. However, this will also make it more difficult to maintain your balance.

Slide your left foot out to the side and turn it out, just as you did with your right foot. Think of it as pushing your right foot up, and then pulling your left foot to the left.

Bring your left heel up as you move your right heel down. Always remember the rule about keeping one heel up and one heel down at all times. Make sure your body weight switches to the new toe each time you change feet, as it will allow you to slide your feet in and out more easily. At first, this transition may feel a little clunky, but you’ll get the hang of it and will be able to make it look like one fluid motion, like a wave traveling through you.

Bring your right heel down and turn the toe inwards. Slide it toward your left foot. Just do exactly what you did with your left foot with your right foot.

Switch your toe and heel, bringing your right toes up and out and your left heel down and in. Your feet should be very close to each other, with your right heel hovering over your left toes.

Slide your left foot out to get into the starting position. Return to the place where you started — standing with your feet hip distance apart.

Repeat these steps again until you get comfortable with them and can move fluidly. Reverse the feet so you travel back in the opposite direction. You can just start by moving all the way to the left and then all the way to the right, and then practice moving back and forth, up and down, or diagonally as you become more comfortable with gliding.

Keep practicing. If you want your glide movements to look really fluid and natural, then you’ve gotta keep practicing. Spend at least fifteen minutes a day gliding to your favorite hip hop beat and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you improve. Once you get the footwork down, you’ll be able to use your arms more, instead of just keeping them at your sides. You can put your whole body into it, and find a way to move around that is completely unique.


How To Set Up A Private Network: 11 Steps (With Pictures)


Configure the computers for networking. To do this you will need to go to the internet options on each computer. This is different depending on if you are using Host Address assigned to the router between your private network and the internet as both the DNS server and the Default Gateway. If configuring a home network with a relatively new router, This section can be ignored as long as the network is connected correctly, The router will assign network addresses to everything on the network going into your network, until it hits another router.

If your network is divided using one or more internal routers, each router will require an address for each network connected to it. This address will need to be a host address (just like a computer’s) from the host range of the network. Typically, the first available host address (that’s the second address in the address range ex. will be used. However any address in the host range is fine as long as you know what it is. Do not use the network address (ex., or the broadcast address (ex

For networks containing one or more user devices (ex. printers, computers, storage devices), the address the router uses for that network will become “Default Gateway” for the other devices. The DNS server, if present, should remain the address used by the router between your networks and the internet. For networks interconnecting routers, no default gateway is needed. For networks containing both user devices and routers, any router on that network will do.

A network is a network, no matter how big or small. When two routers are connected by one cable, all will belong to the cable. The network address will be .0, the broadcast will be .255. Two of the hosts will be used (one for each interface the cable connects), and the other 252 will simply go to waste because they cannot be used anywhere else. Generally, the small home routers are not used for this purpose. When they are, understand the ethernet interfaces on the “private network” side usually belong to a “switch” which is built into the router. The router itself connects to this internally using only one interface. When this is the case, only one host IP will be used by all of them, and they will all be on the same network.

When a router has multiple interfaces with multiple IP’s, each interface and IP will create a different network.

To do this you will need to go to the internet options on each computer. This is different depending on if you are using Windows Mac , or Linux . Go to the dialog box that lets you change the TCP/IP protocol. Change the radio buttons from “Obtain from DHCP server automatically” to “Use the following IP address:”. Type in your IP address for that computer, and the appropriate subnet mask ( If you have no routers, leave the “Default Gateway” and “DNS server” fields blank. If connecting to the internet using NAT, use theassigned to the router between your private network and the internet as both the DNS server and the Default Gateway. If configuring a home network with a relatively new router, This section can be ignored as long as the network is connected correctly, The router will assign network addresses to everything on the network going into your network, until it hits another router.

How To Understand Camera Exposure: 15 Steps (With Pictures)

The exposure is controlled by the camera’s light meter. The light meter determines what the proper exposure is; it all sets the f-stop and shutter speed. The f-stop is a fraction; the f represents the focal length. The f-stop is determined by dividing the focal length by the aperture. f/2.8 would be 1/2.8 versus f/16 which would be 1/16. If you look at it like slices of a pie, you would get a lot more pie with 1/2.8 than you would with 1/16.

This can be very unnerving, but f-stops and shutter speeds on every picture to get the light right or the lightness and darkness and exposure.

A good way to understand it is to “think of a bucket of water with a hole in the bottom. If you have a large hole in the bottom of the bucket (large aperture), water will drain out quickly (fast shutter speed). Conversely, for the same amount of water, if you have a small hole in the bottom of the bucket (small aperture), the water will drain out slowly (slow shutter speed).”

Exposure or lightness and darkness in the picture is a combination of the f-stop, which is the size of the hole in the lens, and the shutter speed, which is the length of time that the shutter is open. So, if you leave the shutter open longer, you’re getting more light to the film or more light to the digital sensor, and the picture gets brighter, or lighter. If you shorten the exposure (give less light to the film or to the digital sensor), the exposure gets darker. Longer shutter speed: more exposure, more light; shorter shutter speed: less exposure, less light.

Learn about the “f-stop”. “F-stop” (also called “f-number”) means fraction and the f-number is the fraction of the actual opening in the lens compared to the focal length of the lens. The aperture is the opening light passes through.


Try this example. Suppose that you have a lens with a focal length of 50mm and the f-number is f/1.8. The f-number is determined by focal length/aperture. So 50/x=1.8 or x~=28. The actual diameter where the light comes through the lens is 28mm across. If that lens had an f-stop of 1, for example, the aperture would be 50mm, because 50/1=50. That’s what the f-stop actually means.

Set the aperture to control both the light and the amount that is in focus, in other words, the depth of field.

Set a wide opening, like f/2 or 2.8, to blur the background and have your subject razor sharp. Also, you’ll probably want to use the largest aperture when shooting in low-light, in order to prevent blur.

Shoot a medium aperture, 5.6 or 8 so the subject is sharp and background is slightly out of focus but still recognizable.

Shoot at smaller apertures, like f/11 and possibly smaller, for a landscape picture when you want the flowers in the foreground, the river, and the mountains all in focus. Depending on your format, tiny apertures like f/16 and smaller will cause you to lose sharpness due to diffraction effects.

For many photographers, the aperture is far more important to achieving great pictures than the shutter speed, because it controls the depth of field of the picture, whereas it’s more difficult to tell if a picture was shot at 1/250 or 1/1000 of a second.

How do you set it? On some cameras there’s a button right on the top of the camera that says ISO. You press the button, turn the dial, and change it.

Stop action by changing the shutter speed on your camera. Change the shutter speed on your camera to affect the action-stopping ability. If you’re shooting a picture with your camera hand-held, you will need a shutter speed that as fast as or faster than the reciprocal of your focal length. In other words, if you were shooting on a 100mm lens, a shutter speed of 1/100 of a second would be optimal. Camera blur can be eliminated at these speeds.

Medium shutter speed: 125 or 250 for most pictures.

Fast shutter speed: 500 or 1000 for action.

Thirtieth or a fifteenth of a second to blur action or under low light.

Learn how to change the shutter speed on your digital camera. You might have the option of a dial, a button on your camera, or you may have to do it in-camera.

Always err on the side of underexposure. Of course, it goes without saying that you want fantastic exposure, but if you can’t get it quite right, err on the side of underexposure (let your scene be a little dark). When a picture is over-exposed, all of the information is lost and cannot be recovered. With underexposed pictures, you have a greater chance of recovering the picture through post-processing. You can set your camera to underexpose by using EV compensation (exposure value compensation).

In shutter priority mode, pick the shutter speed and the camera sets the f-stop.

When in shutter priority, the camera will take the picture at the selected shutter speed regardless of whether or not the picture will be exposed correctly.
