1). Spend plenty of time at your vanity. Apply lipstick, powder, and perfume as needed. Don't forget the perfect coiffure, lovely nails, and lush, curled lashes.
2). Bake and frost a batch of delicious, adorably decorated cupcakes. Distribute among your friends and neighbors. Don't forget to keep some aside for your own home, arranged just so on a vintage serving plate.
3). Do some light housecleaning. Remember to wear a frilly apron and some cute shoes – anyone could be watching!
4). It's time for some entertainment! Read a new book, find out something new and interesting about the state of the nation or the world, or start learning a new skill. Perhaps it's time to begin knitting a new sweater or monogramming handkerchiefs for you and your man!
5). Prepare cocktails; sip one yourself and had the other to your man when he comes home from a hard day's work. Serve a delicious, healthful meal with the second one.
6). Ask your man how his day went. Listen attentively and then share with him the interesting things you've read about and done during the day.
7). Time to wind down for the evening – primp in the bathroom; slide into some delicious silk stockings and a slithery satin robe. Remember, there's nothing as alluring to your man as a flash of stocking or a sliver of thigh peeping out from your robe.
