Ladies I want to emphasize what being a couple means, and what it should mean for a Christian Woman.  A Smart Christian woman Does not just aimlessly date without purpose with just any man who asks her out (as if).  No, a smart Christian woman wants a Godly man, the Christian man who god has for her.  Which means she only accepts date with men that are on the same page as her as far as her beliefs and values (A Christian man).  A man who has created a future for himself, is stable, and able to support a wife and family and wants to settle down.

That doesn’t mean on  the first date she tells him she wants to get married and have kids by next week!   Through conversation and getting to know someone it won’t take long at all to find out where this man’s head is at!  So you do want a man who is looking for that long-term relationship that leads to a life partnership!  So he’s either that type of man or he is  not, but in any case life is short and a smart woman doesn’t waste time with men who aren’t suitable for her ie unequally yoked!

Valentine’s Day Date Night


Welcome to SCW’s  Special Valentine’s Day Weekend edition where we are celebrating VDay all weekend, straight through to the big day!

  • Friday: What to wear? Valentine’s Day date night outfits
  • Saturday: What to buy?
  • Sunday: What to eat?
  • Monday: What to do?
  • Tuesday: Happy Valentine’s Day!

Getting ready for such a romantic evening should be fun. So don’t take the fun out of it by stressing over what to wear. To save you from unwanted stress SCW has you covered. I’ve rounded up some classy ideas to get you started, whether it’s a first date, romantic date, Single and dating, or married, the object of the evening is to look great and have fun! Find the perfect look to help you exude confidence for the big night. But first let’s get started with some confidence building tips.


4 Tips for your VDay date night outfit

The secret to a great looking outfit that looks good on you is to first have the right size, there is no great outfit without a great “Fit”

Look for dresses that complement your body type. For instance if you’ve recently had a baby do not pick a tight dress that draws attention to your mid section. Black dresses and pants are slimming.

Red is the color of love and a VDay favorite! However there’s no law that says you have to wear red. Wear what looks good on you no matter the color because that is what your date will remember that you looked good!

When it comes to dresses go long, go short, whatever compliments your body type and you feel good in. For example if you’re tall you may want to show off your legs and opt for a shorter dress.



Casual VDay date night, perhaps a first date on VDay in which case you don’t want to seem too presumptuous but instead one day at a time. No law that says you have to wear a dress.  Dressy casual is the term.


Black dress, red shoe, romantic date night



Tall and statuesque women show off your legs.



  • Don’t have a date for VDay this year? Rock your confidence! And you’re on your way to having one next year.


  • Above all else you want to be comfortable. Buy your clothes from a maternity shop. They are made to give you plenty of extra room and comfort, and stylishly plays up your beautiful condition.

Long and silky straight or a short curly textured crop

  • Skin and Makeup

Tip #3,  Always use sunscreen whenever your skin is exposed to the sun to prevent sunburn sun damage and premature aging.

Tip #4,  In warm weather Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize, your skin with an all over moisturizer after every bath and shower.  The skin tends to dry out more in the heat.

  • There’s nothing more sexy than a woman who takes good care of herself.  Men notice!

  • It starts with a beautiful spirit, a healthy mind and body, and a beautiful appearance.

15 Looks Moms can’t pull off anymore!


Wearing the wrong outfit can make you stick out like a sore thumb.  The years have gone by and though you may feel great you’ve changed, yep you’re a mom now and your taste for fashion has to change with it.  Fashion being the operative word.  Fashions change but style remains.  So at this point in your life you should concentrate more classic conservative style.

That doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it, look great, even hot.  It just means some adjustments will have to be made to accommodate the “Grown up style”.  So pass the torch to your teen daughter to wear all the trends.  You stick to a more sophisticated classy style.  Below are 15 looks that mom either shouldn’t do or should not try to pull off anymore.


  1. The Club night mini dress is a definite no-no.

  • Do try one of these looks for your summer night out, or date night.



  2.  Pants that look like they belong to a tween doesn’t belong in your closet.  As well as too sparkly embellishments and writing, or too low are not mommy run fashion05-25-10_MG_5860

  • Do wear a nice pair of crisp white cotton pants for the seasonlooks-moms-shouldnt-wear-tube-top-strapless-compressed

  3.  No one wants t feel like their mom is about to have a ” Janet Jackson” pop up moment.

  • Do tame your chest and wear flattering styles representing your kids and husband.



  4.  Mini skirt and high heels really?  This screams I’m desperate look at me!

Looking for a shorter dress style for summer for a grown up woman, try the shirt dress. They are stylish lightweight, breathable, comfortable for summer.

  5.  Don’t embarrass yourself in front of your neighbors by drawing attention to yourself with what you wear.  i.e. really short shorts, spandex, heels, in the garden?  Looks desperate.

  • Do dress appropriately while gardening



          6.  A tattooed grandma is not a good look

  • Do be the type of grandma your children and grandchildren can be proud of.



                 7.  Butterfly hair clips are so tween.

  • Do wear sophisticated  pins



  8.  See through mesh doesn’t flatter.


  • Instead a satin black evening dress classy and elegant

    9.  Colored hair radical hippy chick really?  Your punk rock days are over.

  • Instead try a soft feminine style that flatters your face.  Get a professional cut and style.

  10.  Letting your glutes hangout in public doesn’t reflect a confident composed wife and mother.

  • Do wear a nice pair of conservative white shorts for the season.




  11.  Short tops that show off the midsection are best left to teens.

  • Do wear flattering blouses and tops that are feminine and pretty



  12.  Oversized purses that weigh you down are out.  Simplify your life.



  13. Nothing says old hag like an unflattering bikini.  While your bikini days may be over you can still look good on the beach in a suit that flatters your body type.  Don’t try to squeeze a size 12 ,14, and up into a two piece suit.

  • Do try a flattering sexy plus size one piece.  Ashley Stuart is a great store for plus size girls they have all the latest styles in your size.



  • Also try a cover up, they work nicely to cover problem areas.



14.  Some women are not comfortable showing their legs in summer because of problem areas.  You can work on that with a professional cellulite rub.  In the meantime you can still be stylish and look good this summer with exposing your full leg in public.  Capri pants are a girls best friend

  • Do try a pair of Capri pants plus size goes from size 12 -22



  • The medium size bag for day and a stylish classic clutch for night.


 15.  High waisted styles are unflattering and make you fall victim to the term: “Mom Jeans” which are actually real and sell.  Accentuate the positive without revealing much as any self-respecting mom and wife would do.

  • Instead do a dark denim skinny jean.  Dark denim is great can be dressed up with great tops and heels.
