What is Relationship Magic?

Relationship Magic is a personalized relationship program that provides you with unique advice, tips, and techniques to implement based on whether you’re male, female, married or single. It doesn’t matter if you’re separated, heading towards a breakup or divorce, widowed and have never been in a relationship before. It starts with where you are now, and works with that.

The entire system focuses solely on values and how they play a key factor is finding and maintaining a satisfying relationship. You will find absolutely zero chapters on changing who you are, what you look like or what you want. Instead, the program takes your current situation and teaches you effective techniques that allow you to fill it with love. This is done by first, defining your four most important relationship values (and no more than that, which the program explains why) and then using those values to create a powerful, romantic and satisfying relationship.

I’ll dive into this more in just a moment but it’s worth mentioning that there are different versions based on your situation. For example, there is a version for:

  • Single Men
  • Married Men
  • Single Women
  • Married Women

This is extremely important because, as the saying goes “men are from Mars and women are from Venus”. In other words, we simply don’t operate the same especially when it comes to relationships. So, you’re able to customize the version of Relationship Magic that you receive to ensure it relates to your situation and gender.

Once you select the version that is most appropriate for you, you’re provided with a main manual that is infused with expert relationship advice that teaches you how to define your relationship values and how to introduce them to your partner. There’s even a chapter on how to talk about relationship values with a reticent partner! You also receive exercises and worksheets that help you put your newfound knowledge into action.

In addition to the main manual you receive when you get started, you also get extra content based on your specific situation, such as:

  1. How to Walk Up to A Beautiful Stranger (for single men)
  2. How to Talk to a Woman and Create Intense Chemistry (for single men)
  3. How to Make Your Wife Happy (for married men)
  4. How to Talk to Your Husband or Boyfriend About Your Relationship Values (for single and married women)

You just log into the customer portal and download the content right onto the tech device of your choice, such as your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. This ensures you have all of the powerful advice provided to you throughout the program with you whenever and wherever your love life takes it. As long as you have your tech device, you have what you need to make the most out of any situation that comes your way.

Now, if you’re still convinced that your situation is in need of some serious therapy or that love is not possible for you, you do receive a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee with Relationship Magic. This gives you two months to put the information you learn throughout the program into action before deciding if it’s for you.

9 Things to Do This Summer (on a Budget)

Maybe this isn’t exactly the summer we had in mind (read: canceled vacations and closed beaches), but that doesn’t mean we can’t make the most of this year. Because you deserve the very best that the season has to offer, we’ve partnered with Gilt City to bring you major discounts on all of our summer favs that can be enjoyed from the comfort (and safety) of your own home.

Gilt City is an online shopping and lifestyle website that offers insider-level access to major deals on experiences in your area, top brands, and beyond. To quote Norah Jones, “it’s summertime, and the livin’ is easy.” Oh yeah, and it’s majorly discounted too. Read on for nine things to do this summer, and check out Gilt City for our favorite brands and experiences at a lower price. 

 

1. Perfect the at-home manicure and pedicure

So you’re wearing flip-flops and open-toe sandals more than booties, and you can no longer hide a bad manicure or chipped polish behind gloves and mittens. Painted and groomed nails are as essential for summer as a cute swimsuit and a faux tan, but they’re not always easy to maintain. Not only is painting your nails at home more affordable, but it’ll be safer this summer as well. Thanks to Gilt City, you can score major deals on high-end nail care brands that will leave your fingers and toes looking pretty all season long. Try MiniLuxe Nail Kits for up to 42 percent off nail kits, or Deborah Lippmann for 50 percent off nail treatments, colors, and more. 

 

 

2. Revamp your summer wardrobe

Fall fashion is fun (the plaid!), but I’m partial to summer clothes. Light fabrics, effortless styles, and pretty colors make this season’s clothing chic without having to try too hard. Revamp your 2020 summer wardrobe with crisp basics, lightweight shorts, and pretty dresses you can throw on (because the hardest decision you make all day should be whether to have a glass of rosé or an Aperol Spritz, not what to wear). We love Joules for effortless styles and summer basics, and thanks to Gilt City, you can get 40 percent off full-price items (yes, really!), and an extra 20 percent off of sale items. Revamping your summer wardrobe with the best items of the season doesn’t have to break the bank. 

 

 

3. Find a healthier replacement for your second cup of coffee

I love coffee as much as the next girl, but there’s something about warmer weather that motivates me to fuel my body with only the best. Instead of reaching for the second cup of coffee or an afternoon americano (which comes with coffee jitters and caffeine crashes), I’ve been opting for matcha, which is a powder made of concentrated green tea leaves. You get the boost of energy without crashes or jitters, plus up to 33 percent off MatchaBar with one of the packages from Gilt City. 

 

 

4. Get some Insta-worthy pool accessories 

The #1 most Instagrammed accessory of summer? A pool float. Whether you’re booking a weekend away at a nearby lake or you’re lounging by your aunt’s backyard pool more often than you’re in your own home, a pool float that’s as cute as your swimsuit is a necessity. Try the Giant Swan Float that went more viral than the “Renegade” Dance on TikTok, or the Seashell Float that helps you live out your wildest The Little Mermaid fantasies. Get up to 43 percent off fashion girls’ favorite pool floats and accessories at #GETFLOATY when you purchase through Gilt City. 

 

 

5. Host a dessert tasting

Sure, wine tastings are fun and cheese boards are always a crowd-pleaser, but if you want to really impress your friends, host a dessert tasting instead (yes, I did get this idea from Kyle Richards’s infamous party on season 7 of RHOBH). Not only is it fun, different, and creative, but who doesn’t love desserts? Give the people what they want and surprise your significant other with gourmet versions of their favorites, or have a few friends over for some cake and chill. Using Gilt City, you can score up to 36 percent off award-winning sweets from Mini Melanie, shipped to your door (be warned: the Oreo Sprinkles Cookie Cake will make you drool). 

 

 

6. Tap into your creativity and start crafting

Summer means more energy and longer days. With all the extra time you have after the workday is over, turn off the TV (sorry, Netflix!) and tap into your creative side. Michaels is our go-to store for everything you need to make a scrapbook for your college roommate’s bridal shower present or to get materials to try out a free sketching class on Youtube. Gilt City is conveniently offering 25 percent off any online purchase (available for delivery or curbside pick up). With a discount and easy delivery (or pick up), there’s no excuse to keep putting off that mood board you’ve been telling yourself you’ll start or picking up a new hobby like painting. 

 

 

7. Buy yourself flowers

One of the best parts of the season is fresher, brighter flowers, so why not make the most of summer by buying yourself a pretty bouquet (because self-love is a good enough reason for any indulgence). Plus, a fresh bouquet of your favorite peonies or sunflowers will not only freshen up your home and show off your style personality, but it will feel like a little extra luxury (and you deserve it!). Get up to 35 percent off bouquets from Bouqs when you order online through Gilt City. Plus, a major bonus for our Everygirl brides: you can also score almost $100 off towards any wedding floral package.

 

 

8. Switch to laundry care that’s better for you, your clothes, and the environment

Laundry is a chore, but upgrading to the right products can make it feel more like a luxury. With better options (and insane discounts), you no longer have to settle for laundry care that’s bad for the planet or bad for your skin. The Laundress has been saving us from dry cleaning prices and stains on delicate fabrics (like cashmere and silk) for years, and Gilt City is offering 40 percent off their eco-friendly detergent and laundry care. This season is the perfect time to freshen up bed sheets, wash the linen pants and swimsuits you never get around to dry cleaning, and turn laundry into a luxury (all while being friendly to the environment). Win, win! 

 

 

9. Spruce up your home with fun accessories

Winter is meant for cozy accessories, warm throw blankets, and lit candles. Summer, however, is the perfect time for brightening up the home with fun accessories and bold colors. Make the most of the season by adding a standout piece or two that will draw a whole lot of attention and revamp your space. And what’s brighter and bolder than a trendy neon sign? Name Glo is a go-to for high-quality custom designs and Insta-worthy accessories (my personal favorite is the Mini Stand “Yes”). Yes, they’re investment pieces, but only at Gilt City can you get them for 50% off. I mean, can you even resist a deal this good!?

 

 

 

This post was in partnership with Gilt City, but all of the opinions within are those of The Everygirl editorial board.

4 Essential Tips for Starting a New Job During COVID-19

Starting a new job can be an exciting time, as you prepare to walk into the office on your first day to meet your new team, set up your office, and hit the ground running. But starting a new job remotely sometimes can lack that same luster, especially when working from home is the “new normal” across the company. 

As many companies are now adjusting to new or modified schedules that allow their employees to work from home, and as the future of offices shift, as a new employee, it can be intimidating to begin a job with a new company without the formalities of orientation and meeting your new colleagues in person. Adapting to a new job remotely poses its own set of challenges: How do you get acquainted with colleagues who are not on your immediate team? How will your new coworkers know about your hire? How will you establish rapport with your team?  

Being patient and flexible seems to be the name of the game when adjusting to a new job from home. Make your adjustment to your new company a smooth one, even from your own home, with a few tips on starting a new job remotely.

 

1. Make your manager the middle man 

There’s no bigger advocate to have when starting a new job with a new company than your manager, especially when meeting colleagues in person on your first day is no longer an option. Your manager will be your guide and biggest cheerleader, announcing your arrival as a new hire while everyone is working from home and pre-occupied with adjusting to a new type of work-life balance. 

See if your manager would consider sending out an announcement of your hire, and open your calendar up for e-introductions from your new coworkers. An announcement is a great way for others in your company to get to know you and your role and how you might be working with them. Your manager can also include you in on various video conferences and meetings to introduce you to a variety of coworkers to get acquainted with. Ask about meetings that could help you not only introduce yourself and your role, but also help you become familiar with the moving parts of the business and current projects to get you up to speed. 

Build a rapport with your manager by suggesting one-on-one meetings frequently during the start of your role to gain more understanding of your team, their preferred communication style, and short-term and long-term goals you should adhere to. When working from home, it is easy to be out of sight, out of mind when it comes to connecting with your manager, so proactively scheduling regular check-ins helps keep the communication flowing, making work more effective and your transition even smoother. 

Your manager is in charge of making sure you get your foot in the door with all of the right people while working from home; make sure to use their influence to ensure a graceful start to your new job. 

 

2. Use human resources as a resource after onboarding

When starting a new job, onboarding can be one of the most helpful ways to introduce yourself to your new company. Whether you are in the office or working from home, the onboarding process is a great tool to learn more about the structure of the company, your new role and responsibilities, and what to expect when you do eventually come back into the office.

Navigating a new company after onboarding without the proper connections or guidance in person can seem daunting. Your human resources team is the perfect team to help guide you through a new company, even past the initial onboarding, having access to everything you need to make your transition to a new company and role from home a smooth one. Keep in touch with your human resources team after onboarding to get key information that will help you past your first days with the company, including company directories, work-from-home polices and procedures, and employee resource groups to get involved with to acclimate yourself to your new company. Your human resources professional should be on top of the latest company news and any changes, especially during major shifts in the company with work-from-home schedules. They can be your introduction to the full company and help you explore your new job without having to leave home.

3. Discover your team’s communication style 

One of the major setbacks of working from home is establishing and maintaining effective communication with colleagues, your manager, and other coworkers, especially as a new employee who is just learning the ropes. For some of your colleagues, this might be their first time working from home for an extended period of time, adjusting to new forms of communication online and by phone vs. the standard in-person boardroom meeting many workers have been accustomed to. 

Discover your immediate team’s preferred communication style, whether it be by phone, email, instant messaging, or via video conference. Some colleagues may rather not be inundated with emails and respond better using other forms of communication, which will help you be more effective at reaching them when starting your new role.

How your team communicates, along with when your team best connects and is productive, is also crucial to starting off on the right foot from day one. Does your team have frequent check-ins, or should you put time on each calendar to have one-on-ones? Is your manager available during normal business hours or likes to catch up before or after the workday? These are all important preferences to note when working with your new team, especially when face-to-face time is limited or nonexistent and many are juggling family and work during the workday. 

 

4. Connect with new team members offline 

If you’re starting a new job remotely, it can be difficult connecting with your new team outside of work-related tasks and duties. Whether you’re working from home or going into the office occasionally, make time to get to know your colleagues, and give them the opportunity to get to know you. 

Video conferencing is a great way to connect with your new team face-to-face if you haven’t already done so in person. Put some time on your team’s calendar to meet virtually either during or after work to get to know them informally. If video conferencing isn’t an option, a good old-fashioned phone call works just as well. Get to know them by connecting on a more personal level: How did they get started at the company and what has their experience been? What would they like to know about you? Who else should you try to meet within the company?

Giving your new team the opportunity to get to know you outside of your new role within the company helps bridge the gap between being the new employee no one has met yet to someone they know and can trust professionally. It also helps build relationships with other team members who can help advocate for you as a new hire. Look at connecting with your new team as networking in a different way, connecting with your colleagues on a different level to establish trust and build morale professionally. 

 

Starting a new job working from home doesn’t have to be intimidating or daunting; make your presence known across your company so that you can hit the ground running and make the biggest impact.

Hairstyles to Rock When It’s Hot AF Out

In a perfect world, on a humid summer morning, I’d roll out of bed with soft, tousled, beachy waves and would make my way to my desk with my locks perfectly intact, smooth, and luscious. In reality, 10 seconds after I step outside every morning, no matter if I curled or straightened my hair, it ends up in the same disheveled, frizzy, half-wave mess.

When the temperature is high (and the humidity is even higher), the last thing anyone wants is their hair sticking to the back of their neck, or worse, putting in the effort in the morning to have it all go to waste before 9am. (And is there anything worse than blow-drying your hair when it’s 100 degrees out?).

The good news is that there are plenty of hairstyles that can be accomplished without heat tools or a ton of effort in the mornings. The better news is that hair accessories are as in as ever, and you can use them all summer long to tame your mane in the chicest way possible. Put the curling iron down and try out these easy, heat-free hairstyles this summer.

When it’s muggy out, the last thing you want is for your hair to be falling in your face. Use them to hold it back, or accessorize your un-done look with clips to make it look like you put a little more effort in than you did (we won’t tell).

Curl Defining Jelly is a light-weight hydrating styling product that helps add moisture 💦and definition ➰to curly hair. I love it for fine to medium curl types because it’s doesn’t weigh your curls down and allows your natural volume to come through. 🆗➡ Can you use it on coarser hair types? Yes! You can use it to add shine at the end, just like you would use a serum (but this doesn’t have silicones). You’d just want to moisturize with your leave-in cream and/or curl cream first before using this to finish. ✨ Have you tried the Curl Defining Jelly yet??

A post shared by KRISTIN ESS (AND LOTS OF DOGS) (@kristin_ess) on Feb 16, 2020 at 5:53pm PST

Keep your hair out of your face and off your neck with a chic, maintenance top knot. It’s the quickest way to look put-together with the least amount of effort. Bonus: you can head to your important Monday meeting with one, and nobody will think anything of it. This is our favorite tutorial for a top-knot or curly poof on natural hair. For thin to medium hair types, this three-in-one tutorial is all about top knots! 

 

Sleek, Low Bun

A much needed summer afternoon in Malibu (social-distanced, of course). Just put up a new post on brennaanastasia.com with this look from @abercrombie. 🌾#AbercrombiePartner #AbercrombieStyle http://liketk.it/2RpeN #liketkit @liketoknow.it # ad

A post shared by Brenna Anastasia (@brenna_anastasia) on Jun 29, 2020 at 3:29pm PDT

Founding Partner of The Marketing Greenhouse and former Social Media Editor of The Everymom, Jessie Barnes-Bernhardt loves wearing this style for both work and play because it’s super versatile and trendy. “Somewhere between low block heels replacing stilettos and mom jeans making a comeback, our grandma’s low bun became cool again, and we’re not mad about it,” Bernhardt said. “This style is so easy that it can be used as a go-to, or a last resort if you’re hair just won’t cooperate. We love this style for showing off a good pair of statement earrings.”

Follow the same steps for a top knot on fine-thick hair; for coarse or natural hair, this tutorial is helpful!

 

Low, Messy Bun

View this post on Instagram

Now I know you guys know I love a good bun/pin/pieces sticking out weird combo 🥳 sometimes it’s the quick hair changes that force you to be creative with little time to even think about it. You just do it. #nike ✔😂 @nicaro @jey_ventura

A post shared by Kathleen (@kathleen_hair) on Jul 31, 2019 at 9:14am PDT

When you need a maintenance look for going out, a low, messy bun looks romantic and un-done in a purposeful way. Pull a few face-framing pieces out and hit them with your curling iron to give it an extra oomph.

 

Heatless Waves

Would you believe me if I told you these waves were heatless?? New video is up and I used the @octocurl for these heatless sleep in waves 😍 ALSO here is my fresh color 🔥 let me know what you think!! . . . #hairstyles #heatlesscurls #heatlesswaves #waves #shorthair

When you need to have your hair down but still can’t manage turning on your curling iron, there are heatless ways to achieve a similar look while still being able to press the snooze button in the morning. For ringlets you never thought you could get without a curling iron, this tutorial explains it all. We also love this tutorial for waves that look beachy and effortless.

 

 Slicked-Back Ponytail

Silky straight pony for the kween of kweenz @thasupremecourt on set of @lclaurenconrad 💕👑 I always feel a deep guilt when straightening curly hair but if you’re gonna do it you take your time, use protection and BE SAFE AF ABOUT IT OKAY?? OKAY. 😉

A post shared by KRISTIN ESS (AND LOTS OF DOGS) (@kristin_ess) on Sep 13, 2019 at 12:36pm PDT

Bernhardt explained that this is one of her favorite hairstyles during the summer. “Fly-aways, baby hairs, edges—whatever you call them, the hair along our hairline always seems to be an issue for so many of us in the summer months,” Bernhardt said. “A slicked-back pony is the perfect way to look put-together and stylish at the same time. Plus, with the right products, it will stay put, and you can say goodbye to worrying about upkeep throughout the day.”

If you want the look of flowing locks on your shoulders without all the hair in your face, this style might become your go-to. It’s playful for a happy hour outside, but it looks put-together for all those work meetings too. 

We also love this style on top of others, so don’t be afraid to pull your braids or twists back too!

This style has been seen on every celeb in the last year or so, and it’s perfect for summer. Yes, those layers are still near your face, but getting the rest of your hair off your neck and shoulders will make a world of a difference when the temperatures reach 90 degrees and up.

25 Breakfast Recipes You Can Meal Prep for the Week

There seem to be two kinds of people in the morning: those who get out of bed as soon as their alarm goes off, maybe fit in a little morning movement, and have plenty of time to sit and ease into their morning, and those who race out of bed with just enough time to get to work, class, or wherever else on time. No matter the group you fall into (though this would probably be especially beneficial to the latter), having breakfast already made in the morning can make a huge difference in how your morning goes—not to mention whether or not you’re able to actually eat.

Meal prepping breakfast, in my world at least, means that there’s a much higher chance of breakfast actually happening. Even doing something like measuring ingredients for a smoothie or pouring cereal into a bowl can cut into the rest of my morning routine. Whether you’re a sweet breakfast person or a savory one, there are tons of options to prep ahead of time that will make your mornings go that much smoother, no matter what time you wake up.

Whether you’re a coffee all day, every day kind of person or you’re more interested in some of the other offerings at breakfast, chances are pretty good that you drink something every morning (even if it’s just water!). When you can’t make it to the cafe down the street for your standard morning beverage, knowing how to whip up your own creation at home really comes in handy. But drip coffee and regular old tea can get boring after awhile, so if you’re looking for a new twist on your typical morning drink, try one of these 25 options that we rounded up instead.

10 Items to Wear When It’s Over 90 Degrees (But You Still Want to Look Cute)

I don’t know how it happened so quickly (I’m still confidently writing “May” as the current date), but we’re officially nearing the end of summer, when faux tans are flawless, swimsuits are in constant rotation, and the temperatures are hot (like fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk kind of hot). Since we can’t always stay at home with our head in the freezer and still want to look cute for Zoom meetings, errand-running, or socially-distanced hangouts, we have some tricks up our sleeves to look cute when the temperatures start soaring. Here are 10 of our go-to items to wear when it’s way too hot to wear anything else.

 

1. A breezy skirt

Source: Wait You Need This

When it’s so hot that you start sweating the second you step outside, you might feel tempted to go for shorts again. However, a breezy, loose skirt is not only a little more airy and cool than a pair of shorts, but will look even chicer. Pair with any tee and your go-to sandals.

2. Overall shorts

Source: @accordingtomandy

If your denim cut-offs have been worn every day for the past two weeks and you’re lacking style inspiration, switch to a pair of overall shorts instead (it also doubles as a super cute bathing suit cover-up). Bonus tip: when it’s even too hot for a tee, try a sports bra or crop top underneath. All the cool kids are doing it!

3. A graphic tee

Source: @gabrielegz

Graphic tees are not only in style but are a timeless staple in the wardrobes of cool girls everywhere (and will be a way bigger upgrade from your typical basic tee). Style it tucked into denim shorts with a thick belt and your chunkiest booties for an outfit that’s as cool (literally) as it is edgy.

4. Statement earrings

You know when it’s so hot that you need to put your hair up in a ponytail or a bun just to survive the heat? A pair of really chic statement earrings will make the updo look like a style choice, rather than a there’s-so-much-sweat-on-my-neck-it’s-not-OK kind of choice.

5. Culotte Jumpsuit

When you don’t feel like shaving your legs (because we all have those days), the answer to wardrobe conundrums on the hottest of days is an of-the-moment jumpsuit with flared, cropped pants. Wear with strappy heels for a dressed-up look, or sandals for a daytime affair.

6. Crop top

I know what you’re thinking: crop tops!? I haven’t worn one of those since my last frat darty! But hear me out. Crop tops are no longer reserved for college freshmen and Britney Spears superfans who never left the 2000s. Crop tops are ladylike, stylish, and mature. Oh, and they’re perfect for staying cool in hot weather. To rock the trend in a more grown-up way, pair with high-waisted shorts, pants, or midi skirts, and keep the neckline on the higher side.

7. Lightweight button-up

A long-sleeve might not be the first thing that pops in your head when you walk outside and think, oh sh*t–it is freaking hot. However, a button-up in a lightweight fabric like cotton or satin might be better at hiding pit stains than typical T-shirts (just saying!). Tie it up, roll the sleeves, and wear with a pair of shorts for the easiest, breeziest outfit ever.

8. Long sundress

Source: @petiteelliee

What do you wear on a socially-distanced date or a backyard barbecue when it’s 90 degrees outside? You don’t want to sweat too much (duh), and you also want to look good without, IDK, passing out. The answer, of course, is a breezy, flowy, sundress. Shorter mini-skirts are typically tighter, and therefore more restrictive. A flowy dress that hits at the knees or goes to midi length will not only allow for more air circulation (super important when thigh chaffing is at risk, AKA the case for the vast majority of human women), but will look pretty for any occasion.

9. Linen Pants

Source: @missenocha

There’s something about linen that reminds me of luxurious summer vacations in the South of France or the coast of Italy (not that I frequent there, but I’d imagine I’d wear linen pants if I did). Linen is perfect for summer because it’s a lightweight fabric that absorbs sweat. Wear with a tee or over your bathing suit as a chic cover-up.

10. Embellished sandals

Source: Hello Fashion

When all else fails and it’s so hot that you can only manage throwing on a tank and denim cut-offs, no worries: statement sandals have your back. No matter what you’re wearing up top, a pair of sandals with a bold print, embellishments, or seasonal fringe will show off your style.
