Tu B’shevat Shivat Haminim.
There are few customs or observances related to this holiday.
One custom is to eat a new fruit on this day, or to eat from the Seven Species (shivat haminim) described in the Torah as being abundant in the land of Israel. The Shivat Haminim are: wheat, barley, grapes (vines), figs, pomegranates, olives and dates (honey).




"Being happy is a very personal thing—and it really has nothing to do with anyone else ."

JG: some thoughts and actions to think about, and you should



Forgetting about the world, something deep down, something absolute.  Not so important the physical but dealing with and sharing, emotions, personality, intellect, sense of humor and  attitudes. Some of the immaterial elements that contribute to the powerful force of attraction.

Sunday night’s Super Bowl was amazing, the best in years. So, to honor their win, I thought I’d run this gorgeous British Vogue cover of Mrs. Brady.




as a girl....as  woman............if you had a beautiful pair of legs.....piernas kilometricas....you could:




you could look this way : ...legs like this.......


you could wear swimsuits like this




and work at your computer looking like this




to go shopping you could wear sweet little ankle boots





and to your next holiday party I think that a simple Versace such as this would do nicely



I rest my case - beautiful legs..................












 If your enemy is superior, evade him. If angry, irritate him. If equally matched, fight and if not: split and re-evaluate 

 The downfall of Obama, his cronies and his policy's.


This is why the sudden surge by the conservatives, the strategy is old as time itself, and it works.


"If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected."----Sun Tzu

Two different concepts about Beauty and I subscribe to both of them....



A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Prov. Beautiful things give pleasure that lasts even longer than the beautiful things themselves. (This is a line from John Keats's poem "Endymion." Also a thing of beauty and a joy forever, is used to describe something beautiful in lofty terms, often ironically.)











The voice of beauty speaks softly; it creeps only into the most fully awakened
souls.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Transparences







The Process of cleaning oneself should be treated as a ritual. The right products need to be acquired- ones that lather well and smell fabulous!!!




I mentioned before about the flat white at Starbucks....it is a wonderful taste....and
the presentation in this advertisements is very sharp.....however be like me and try
it in crystal glass....ask them and they will give it to you.....and if you wanted to go
bring your own glass....



and yes, I practice what I preach...........no plastic cups for me.........






Better than ...(rsrs)....






Always carry a roll of cash. Keep it in your front pocket

Never stay out after midnight three nights in a row. Unless something really good comes up on the third night.
.

If you did tattoos.....
  • You will regret your tattoos. 
    • Never date an ex of your friend.
    • When people don’t invite you to a party, you really shouldn’t go.
 And sometimes even when you are invited, you shouldn’t go.
 

    • Theres's always another level. Just be content knowing that you are still better off than must who have ever lived.
    • Don’t ever say, “it is what it is.”
    • Ask for a salad instead of fries.

As every other model out there, Anna claims to have high metabolism, is skinny by nature and can eat “loads of food without gaining weight”. Who knows, but Ukrainian women are usually tall and slender by nature

Fashion | Ulyana Sergeenko Couture Spring 15


I don’t care what anybody wants to say about Ulyana Sergeenko “downsizing” her couture show from runway to hotel room private appointments. She’s married to a billionaire and still has the resources to embroider an entire gown, by hand. Even if her own fellow countrymen won’t – allegedly – have the money to purchase her creations this time around.

a little take on Japan-日本,



One of the cuter -- or possibly creepier -- things that Japanese girls do is refer to themselves in the third person(I kinda like it) Usually, Japanese girls will use their own names in place of a first-person pronoun at a young age, then when they start school and begin interacting with other girls will switch to atashi, a feminine version of watashi, the most common word for "I" in Japanese. (Some will opt for the slightly masculine-sounding boku, and the Japanese word for "tomboy" is bokukko or "girl who usesboku to refer to herself.") I have a special friend and she still refers to herself by her own name. When I asked her about this, she told me, "Well, I can't go around calling myself atashi [I]. It would sound too grown-up, and it wouldn't go with my personality at all." It's really amazing how the Japanese have been able to make a simple concept like "I" so incredibly complex.











BEAUTY

This is a must for all that are interested in beauty.....very nice edition








As seen in Tatler Beauty & Cosmetic Surgery Guide 2014

Does the sagging skin around your knees betray your age? 
Not even the perennially youthful among us, such as Elle “The Body” MacPherson, can escape the blight of sagging skin around the knees. Skin loses its elasticity as we age due to collagen losses and the pull of gravity and the knee area is no exception. Fat pockets reduce the appearance of laxity in these areas by supporting the skin, which is why loose skin is more obvious on lean women like Elle and those who experience weight fluctuations.
So what‘s the solution? The new 3rd generation radio frequency device, Thermage CPT, can improve the skin‘s texture anywhere it‘s needed. As well as being great for the face (Gwyneth is said to LOVE it, by the way), Thermage is also an ideal treatment for sagging skin at the knees.

Plastic surgery isn’t for everyone, but it can be a fabulous option. If you have ever thought about it, you will be interested to know that it has come a long way in the past decade. No longer do women need to fear disfiguring scars or a scary wind tunnel look, if they choose their doctor wisely.

And it seems she did not choose well!!!


Seeing Donatella Versace before and after picture that was caused by plastic surgery you may understand being rich doesn’t mean you will get anything you want. Donatella Versace maybe rich, famous and wealthy though the picture that showing her appearance before and after plastic surgery

COS is here in the US!!

Drive Time


COS is working with a bunch of artists based in the US on some celebratory films.
My favorite is this one from Petra Collins, Drive Time, which is all about Los Angeles. In the heart of a New York winter, escaping for a few minutes of California dreaming is transportive. And I love the analogies on the city, “If LA was a artwork, it would be a Roy Lichtenstein…”





Postcard, Provence, French Essence, Vicki Archer



There are some tastes and smells that never grow old or un-loved.
Fig is one of them.
I love their succulence and generosity, their sweetness and texture.

ÉCOUTEZ! Christine and the Queens

When Héloïse Letissier left theater school in Lyon and moved to London, England, she started a journey that would ultimately lead her towards musical fame. After discovering the city's thriving drag scene, and further exploring her own pop-rock talents, the artist formed Christine and the Queens, a breakout band that melds disco, house, and goth femme genres together to make one crazy dance party.
One cool feature: Since she spends her time in England and France, her music videos are subtitled...so even if you don't parlez français, you can still follow along with the lyrics. As for the electric dance moves, you might have to figure those out on your own...








The B-Word

I do not use the word but I am constantly asked about it.............

bitchpatternother


If you search the word, “bitch,” Google will provide four definitions.
The first is a female dog. The second, underscored by its informal denigration, says “a spiteful or unpleasant woman.” (There are also synonyms provided such as witch, vixen, she-devil and hellcat.) The third and fourth definitions, which are informal, non-pronouns include “a difficult or unpleasant situation or thing” and “a complaint.” Though its first appearance in Germanic discourse dates as far back as 1000 A.D., never has it been as prominently used as in the aughts.
