V-Day in High Heels: Grooming Lessons I Learned from My Boy

Boyfriend Fashion


Of course, love is not only about emotions, feelings and sentiments, but when you decide to live with someone you truly adore, you learn and grow with that person. While thinking about my Dil Ma Teer series, I wanted to do a few posts that are different and highlight such aspects that we usually do not talk about or ignore or neglect or or or or or.

So, I chose this topic because it is one of the ways in which my boy has taught me many lessons. While I shed light on some of the things that I have learned from my boy over the period of time, you will also get a clue or two about grooming, fashion and being presentable. Also, this post will let you reflect on your life and see how your boy has helped you in learning many lessons. 

Boy is so pyara looking aadmi and he never looks sloppy. He takes care of himself and is very considerate when it comes to fashion as well as about his grooming. Lez discuss how he helped me learn a few grooming lessons. See, we are talking about learning, whether I implement it or not is another question. 

Buy less but buy quality

Boy is not greedy like me. Unlike him, I want everything, every new design, every new trend and that makes me to settle down for stuff that may not be of good quality. Of course, because I have to see my budget, I cannot afford to buy everything expensive. But, he is not like that at all. His shopping philosophy goes something like "I'll buy one thing in a year but will pick up some classical stuff."  Slowly and gradually, I am adopting this mantra and I am quite contended with this one. I feel, doing this has made my wardrobe more classical and is giving me more confidence.

He has a Guess watch :O :O :O Envying!


Wear Your Perfume Immediately After Taking Shower

Okay this one is so obvious and I have been a great looser until I lived with him for a few days. He always smells great, I mean he has his signature smell that never fades away. I saw him spraying his perfume immediately after taking shower and then do hair and stuff. I tried this for some time and I realized that it really helps me in smelling good throughout the day. Before adopting this practice, I usually used to spend time in drying my hair, moisturizing my body and then pour some perfume, but now I do what my boy does.

Natural System is The Best Way to Look Good 

He never compromises on his sleep. He sleeps on time and wakes up on time and that is why he does not have any dark circle or squares or triangles. I have seen him and know that it is this habit of him that keeps him fit and beautiful, but I am so unable to practice it. He asks me every night to sleep early, but I never get to sleep early. Even when I try, I keep that routine for a few days and then I go back to late night sleeping habit. 


Experiment with your style

Before I met him, I was all about signature look and one particular style. But, when I saw him experimenting with his style, it also encouraged me to take different routes when it comes to grooming. He often plays with his hair without doing anything with his dressing style. He keeps the way he dresses up intact and experiment with his hair only. Sometimes he grows his hair long and sometimes go super short (thank God hadn't gone bald yet). After seeing him playing with his hair, I also began to make different hairstyles and tried out different sides of parting.

Never leave home without glasses

I don't know whether he does it for style or really for protecting his eyes, but this is something he teaches me all the time. This one, he literally taught me. Before stepping out from homy, he always asks me whether I have kept my glasses or not. I never used to wear glasses but he made me to do so.

He was studying, so I wanted him to totally concentrate on his studies and do not divert, so we kept it like that. Now that he is done with his studies, I am planning to move in with him, but will take time, you know visa issues and all that. Your prayers are needed!
