It’s Only Feminine For Sure

From time immemorial, the softer gender has an innate preoccupation with all that preserves and enhances their youthful looks and beauty.

Across the Globe, from the most primitive tribes to the modern woman, from ancient concoctions of beauty aids to the expansive and ever growing industry for the plethora of female beauty enhancements of the present time, there is one common denominator that brings all women together with the same inborn interest.

Haute Corture has never been more flamboyant and sought after. It is analogous with another time past when primitive women scoured the shores for the best looking sea shells or trekked through the jungle thick in search of the best blades of grass and twine to deck their bodies.

Intimate and alluring undergarments, accepted and in English common reference as lingerie from the French word of the same, defied its initial euphemism in English of being “scandalous under linen” as the other beauty within

Flimsy, sensuous and sweetly seductive for every conceivable persona, mood and moment, lingerie has been an intrinsic part of every woman’s apparel arsenal.

No longer can it be said, “if a face could launch a thousand ships” but more accurately as, “if a lingerie could launch a thousand ships. Then where is he to go?”

There’s no one home but his woman.

What Color Is Your Lucky Underwear?

It is one of those rare moments when I had nothing to do and I just felt utterly bored. You may believe it or not but no TV show could ever get to entertain me except when it’s my own basketball team playing out there! It might be because I haven’t been a fan of any TV show. Going online was a better choice. Is there any? LOL!

I wound up lingering on a personality quiz site. I was very fond of doing this in the past along with other blogpals all for fun. Just for the heck of it, I am doing it again.

… and the test was about my lucky underwear. Geez!


Your Lucky Underwear is Blue


You are caring and extroverted. You’ve made relationships your number one focus, and your lucky blue underwear can bring some balance to them.
You thrive in one-on-one situations. You are a good listener and a natural born therapist.

Sometimes you let the concerns of others become too important in your life, leading to stress and worry.
If you want more balance, put on your blue underpants. They’ll help you take care of yourself first.

A Sight To Behold

One church mate of mine went to a music school. He was so inclined into music that his parents had to support his musical inclinations by getting a formal degree in music. It was there that he had learned to hone his craft.

During church musical activities, we would always see him playing violins. It was such a sight to behold to see the man so young before and now doing his craft wonderfully!

What Makes A Man Lose His Interest In His Woman?

This is not something that I planned to write. It just came on the spur of the moment. Yes, we’ve heard of separations and break ups and divorces. We’ve heard so much of that it has reached a stage where it is no more shocking to hear about another fall out between a couple. So much so that in certain cultures their jaw drops to the ground if they heard that a couple was married for more than 20 years.

So, avoiding the answer from any moral point of view or whose fault it is when a man loses his interest in his woman, we return to that eternal question, what screwed it up?

I could list a few possible reasons why that happens. You probably have more to add to the list. For whatever it is worth, here are what I consider real threats towards a man losing his interest in his woman.

1. The famous one – he found a better woman.
2. His woman became careless about preserving her beauty, attractiveness and sensuality.
3. His woman became too immersed with herself and what she enjoyed doing.
4. His woman grew bored with his habits.
5. His woman became too assertive and possessive not only at home but also in public.
6. His woman suddenly became the enlightened one and he was downgraded to a class of fools.
7. His woman had seizures of “DON’T TOUCH THIS” and threw romance right out of their bed.
8. His woman started to treat him as the eldest child in the family.
9. His woman started to spend more time with her group of friends.
10. His woman showed him repeatedly WHO WEARS THE PANTS at home.

Relationship of any kind is fraught with unpredictables and never dreamed of consequences.

Go Crazy for Copped Trousers

Incredibly adaptable, great looking and stylish no matter what shape or age you are, cropped trousers are a key wardrobe item this spring/summer. Retaining their place after being an autumn/winter trend, cropped womens trousers come in a range of styles and colours and are ideal for summer holiday preparations.

It’s amazing how taking a few inches off the bottom of your trousers can make you feel summery without actually exposing much flesh. Cropped trousers give you a great line, and work well with a wide range of footwear, including beach flip-flops, quirky flat pumps and the full range of heel heights. Easy to wear, they can be matched with vest-tops, polo shirts, tunics and more, so give you a really versatile option.

First, let’s talk about length. For some people, cropped trousers end just below the knee, whilst for others they are almost ankle-skimming. The truth is that anything goes, as long as you can carry it off. If you have shorter legs between calf and ankle, don’t wear cropped trousers that finish half way down your calf, but opt for something just below knee-line, or down at your ankles to make your legs look longer. If you have long legs, you can wear pretty much any length, and you might want to get a couple of pairs so that you have shorter trousers for larking around on the beach, and longer ones to wear out at night with heels and some fantastic accessories.

Then, it’s up to you whether you choose plain or patterned. This season, bright colours and black and white patterns are key trends. You can opt for these looks on top and keep your trousers plain and simple, or you can stand out from the crowd and choose patterned trousers and plainer tops, accessorising with round sunglasses and bright beach bags.

You might also want to choose cropped trousers for work. Several retailers have tailored versions available that you can match with blouses or smart tops and wear to work in the summer instead of skirts – a great way to stay cool and build up your style points.

Cropped trousers are certainly here to stay – for this season at least – so if you don’t already own a pair, perhaps now’s a great time to head off to the shops, or sit down at your PC and do a little browsing. After all, at an affordable price and perfectly on-trend, it would be a shame to miss out.

Why A Woman Takes Her Love Life More Seriously Than Man?

With the rare exception, most if not all women take their love life more seriously than their male counterparts. To those who are cynical about love, it will be their usual way to answer either that “love is blind”, “women are soft” or “it’s all maudlin business”.

In my opinion, women are of the Earth. Women experience the onus of bearing life and is closer to the values of life support than males. Women are the builders of home and family. Women spend more time with their children than their male spouse.

Most women cook and feed their family members. Women see life growing every waking hour and even care unselfishly during their sleep time. They feel the love that it takes to achieve all this, much more than their male spouse will ever comprehend.

Males being the complementary pro-creator is the hunter. He defends, protects and gathers the food needed for his woman and the young. He is in a world that is filled with risks and dangers which makes it a different environment of caring for support.

I wonder if it is the same with cultures where a matriarchal system is practiced. Where the women take on the hunter role of males like the legendary Amazon women or the Minangkabau women of Sumatra.

Tips for a Successful Wardrobe Cleanout

So I was looking at the new General Pants stock for the new season and was falling in love with everything. I knew though before I could go shopping I would need to clean out my wardrobe. When looking at my closet I always have the realisation that there is a hoarder inside of me. A full closet to me means I have lots of options available. I had the epiphany recently that I didn’t need a tone of different options; I just needed the right ones. Getting started was hard but I got it done and wanted to offer my assistance to other clothes hoarders out there. It’s as simple as setting some time aside and getting started. The following article lists some tips (that I used yourself) to clean your wardrobe, it all starts with a plan.

Categories

You should choose one category of clothing at a time, for example jeans. This will prevent the situation of having clothes thrown all over the room and only having half of the job done by bed time. You don’t want to end up like this because it will make you regret ever starting this little project.

Three piles

You should make three piles; keep, donate, throw. The one thing that keeps me holding onto to clothing is knowing the amount of money I spent on it. Especially if I didn’t wear it as much as I should have. It can feel wasteful to just throw it away, why not give it a second home? You should thing of it as taking up space in your closet and therefore wasting more of your money. You can give it to a friend or donate it to a second hand shop.

The test

There are questions that you should ask for every article of clothing; – Do I like how I look in this item, is it flattering? – Is it comfortable, is it too big or too small? – Is there damage and can it be fixed? – Where can I wear it, will I wear it? – Do I have other items that it can be worn with? – When was the last time I wore it? You need to be honest when answering these questions, why lie to yourself about clothing? These are just clothes; it’s time to be ruthless. Now that you have these steps you need, set some time aside to go through your closet. You should see it as an opportunity to rediscover some of your old favourites and makes some room for some new favourites. Don’t worry, I won’t tell…

Skinny Jeans 101

I have always wanted to see myself wearing skinny jeans. I envy women who looks so sexy and fashionable. They certainly looked like fashion models and celebrities! I have always been on the look out for a skinny jeans that would fit my body structure. I feel a little uncomfy with some of the styles. They are just too fit for my liking. It gets really frustrating! Out of desperation, I decided to search on some of the tips in choosing the best skinny jeans for me.

Here they are:

  • The most slimming look comes from skinny jeans in a dark blue or black wash.
  • You don’t have to go with skin-tight jeans to get the look of the trend: jeans vary from super-skinny (usually about a 10″ leg opening) to a kinder, straight-leg cut (about 14″ leg opening).
  • One of the key elements for pulling off skinny jeans is to balance it with volume on top including dolman-sleeve tops, bell-sleeve tops or tunics.
  • Disguise heavy thighs by wearing a longer, belted tunic over skinny jeans.
  • Cover up thick calves by tucking skinny jeans into tall boots.
  • Wear heels with skinny jeans for a leg-lengthening look; pointy-toed flats also work.

Fashion Revolves, It Really Does

If one lives for at least two generations, that would be six decades at least, one would be able to notice that there is a recurrence for fashion. I guess when designers have run out of ideas, they either fall back on what good old grandpa and granny used to fashion themselves with or they would hope for celebrities to do some outlandish thing and set a new fashion wave abuzz.

Well, let’s reminisce on a few examples…

1. His hairdo

No man took the center guy seriously (except when watching him act) until this happened…

And men hairdressing saloons went out of business. School teachers and Headmasters were armed with a pair of scissors for students who kept long hair.

2. Her hairdo

No one took this woman seriously until this happened….

The beehive became the rage and the late Audrey Hepburn did immeasurable business assistance for women hair salons.

3. His face

Women felt that it is impossible to passionately kiss a man with such vegetation on his face, not until this happened….

Along came Mr. Sideburns a.k.a Engelbert Humperdinck and women even allowed their men to use their eye lash pencils to draw false sideburns on their faces.

And there are so many more examples of recurring fashions, that is if one is nearing 60 years of age or over and reminisce about comparisons.
