Cellulite and Fake Tans

Gals you cannot believe it ,but I read the other day that with a fake tan my cellulite disappears… Now how this works I can only guess????

The questions are just bouncing around my brain “Cellulite and Fake Tans”??? And the worse part is, is that my brain cannot answer the question… I’m getting old!!

But as a gal I don’t give-up so quickly and the idea that my skin will have an orange hue to it along with no cellulite is an interesting thought, I think…. Believe it or not?

So, I decided to pop-out to my local drug store and check out all those fake tanning products and believe me there were plenty to choose from. What I noticed while I was standing there looking at all those fake tanning products and when I picked one up to read how to use it; the print seemed to have gotten smaller. I mean really now “What is that supposed to be with the small print?” There on the back of the bottle in micro-mini print was how to use it.

I think I need a microscope to read what is written, otherwise I have no idea what is written there. I went to get myself one of those shopping trollies with a magnifying glass.. I felt like a jerk, but I wanted to read what was written on the bottle.

There before my eyes was written on the bottle was that this product will give you the feeling that you don’t have anymore cellulite.

This stuff is exactly what I need and so I bought 2 bottles of fake tanning products, which almost bankrupted me at the same time after paying $75.00, but hey I want to look young and with a suntan without the sun.

Once home I rushed into the bathroom and took a shower and was going to apply the fake tanning gel to my skin when I noticed that in the small print it said “Try this product on a small spot of skin before applying it to your whole body.”…. Who follows those instructions????? Not me!!

Though I did have some worries about stripes from not applying the product correctly.

Once finished I should wait a bit and then my instant fake tan will/would appear…. So, with my trusty cup of coffee in my hand I waited it out and kept an eye on my cellulite to see if it would disappear…. No luck so far after 2 hours, just an orange colored hue which didn’t do much for my looks….

I looked more like I dunked myself into an orange colored bath, like you would color an Easter egg. Thank goodness in these times; I don’t or shouldn’t leave the house so that none of my friends or the people at work will/would see me. Because if they did it would be an OMG moment to say the least!!!

Just imagine I go to work and ask my PA to do something for me and she see’s me with my orange hue skin color….. The rest is history!

My cellulite is still there, My skin has an orange color hue to it and I am still at home. Sometimes things aren’t as they seem/ say they will be….. That’s life!

Splash -Splash in my Kiddy Pool

Well, as things are and the warmer days are slowly approaching and we’re not only thinking about our figure or better said I’m not thinking about my figure and if anyone ever saw me in a bikini; the beach would be cleared-out in a minute…..OMG!!!

But this year I don’t have to worry about clearing the beach out because I have bought the beach to my back yard. Okay, you can forget the sand, but the feeling is there.

You know really, creativity is needed nowadays and so with a giant poster which I have hung on the fence in my back yard, which is a picture of my last vacation hot spot…. I am directly on the beach without leaving home! What could be better????

Just imagine sitting there in your kiddy pool (no PG-13 here), just the pure luxury of your kiddy pool and your favorite drink in your hand….. Life at its best!!! Sitting there in your kiddy pool looking at the poster and dreaming of that vacation.

The best bit is you don’t have to fight the traffic to get there nor worry about missing your flight either. The kiddy pool is directly at your backdoor doorstep… Life couldn’t be easier!!

Plus, I read some great tips on the internet as to how I can fill my kiddy pool up with water…..

One idea was to use a plastic bottle… Sport program before swimming… that’s for me!!! All I need to do is fill-up a plastic bottle with water and then pour the water out into my kiddy pool and after about ten thousand times of walking back and forth my kiddy pool is full of water and I am totally exhausted and need a nap to recover from filling my kiddy pool up with water.

Then again halfway through this whole sporting activity I will need to take a break for a beer to recover from those strenuous calories that I lost walking back and forth with my plastic bottle.
And what is even worse by the time I finish this whole thing with the water then it is evening and it is too cold to even think about using my kiddy pool…..XY?F

Though there was a life hack (great suggestion if you own a hose); were you fill-up your kiddy pool with water using a hose…. Good idea if you own one, but I don’t own a hose…. So I am SOL!!!! But without a hose I am burning calories running back and forth with my plastic bottle of water for my kiddy pool and bikini figure here I come!!

Okay, finally I got my kiddy pool filled-up with water and it looks good too, but OMG the water is sooooooo cold it could freeze your backside off…. I think I’ll put-off my swimming adventure in my kiddy pool for now and just enjoy the poster that I hung on my fence in my back yard and think about all those great vacation memories.

Enjoy your vacation memories, because they last longer than a kiddy pool!

Party line ©sueromeiser

In our modern world times have changed and we communicate a bit differently then in the past. Now a days we have group chats, video calls and telco’s and other ways to join us together as a group. Now in our time where we are a bit disconnected from family and friends, we use these modern ways of communication.

But when I look back at my childhood those times were not like that….. We had the good’ol “party line” where we were connected together by a single telephone number..OMG!!!!

One telephone number and 4 other people using the line together. Not a bad thing if you are all friends, but if you aren’t, well,well,well is all I can say. Then there was always the person who liked to eaves drop on the other while they were having their afternoon party line coffee time. That was a highlight for my mom!

There she was with her mug of coffee and all the other women who were her friends picked up the receiver at the same time and began to gossip about whatever. As a kid I never understood it, but now looking at the modern ways of communication nothing has changed; just the way it is done, and there was no camera back then either. Though one fun highlight for me was answering the phone and not listening to the number of rings and the call was for someone else and they made it really clear to me that I should not have answered the phone….. Party poopers!!!

Though I can add that the party line fun ended after a couple of years when the telephone company decided to change its system and everyone got their own telephone number and every telephone call costed a lot of money, so as I look back at it, it must have put a damper on my moms afternoon coffee with the gals

Enjoy a coffee with friends online in these times where we are social distancing from friends and family.

What to write and what to say…..

Have you ever thought really thought about the sentence “ I have nothing to say?” I bet not… Many people have nothing to say but never say that sentence and instead repeat the same old story thousands of time until the listener says something. I have nothing against hearing things a couple of times but after that it gets boring and I would rather hear “ I have nothing to say or there is nothing going on in my life at the moment”…. Okay I know it sounds like you could be a boring person, if not seen as a loser…

Nowadays, we have to be active, always on the go and able to show off something cool going on in our lives… When do these people take a break or have a life??? Sometimes I would love to ask these people and I wonder if they are happy with themselves too??? Anyone out there know the answer??

Writing too is an issue, what to say and what to write about that will maybe interest someone out there and not bore you or put you to sleep while you are reading… Then I am a real loser or bore at best!!! But who cares, I’ll just jabber away here and write about whatever pops into my mind…

Okay… And not worry about my summer figure, losing weight, make-up tips or how I will look in the latest fashion fad or the other must haves that others think I need in my life…. Because these are the most common tops that are repeated each day and year for us gals to read about and somehow that has become boring for me to read about… Life is how it is and I will carry on with how things are.. Bad figure, out of date fashion( okay..Vintage now), and vintage make-up tips and it still seems to fit in somehow… The surprising facts that I would have never thought about until I started writing here… Inspiration comes in various ways….

So, inspire yourself today and have fun and don’t worry about being a bore either!!

Ketchup and Co……

As you may already know there are lots of things around that you can hold your ketchup in….. An amazing fact that may not be new to you……

But have you heard about the handy condiment holder for the air-vent of your car??? I bet not… and if you have; I bet you have already rushed out and bought one?
Well, as I see it, it’s a must have for 2018 for your car by adding that bit of latter-day charm to modern-day living……just attaching this little holder to the air-vent brings a whole new look to my car let alone being functional too.

And as a gal who is out and about quite a bit; my ketchup won’t spill all over the seats nor on the dashboard…even though I am not one to eat and drive. The esthetics alone are the conversation maker….
There I was driving down the street over to a friends house the other day and I told my friend in advance about that nifty little ketchup thing… and she was almost beside herself with excitement wanting to see the ketchup holder which she and my other friends didn’t have… plus this thingy is not exclusively limited to holding condiments either… What else I am not sure, but I’ll think of something and let you know. That is if you really want to know???

As soon as my friend got into my car she screamed out OMG wow, that’s really cooool!!! I knew that I had impressed her, and she took a couple of pictures of it and posted them on all her social network sites, so that the world could admire my newest thing that I bought that I didn’t need…. Don’t tell my friends that!!!

On the way to our destination to the shopping mall……We want to shop till we drop!!! Remember that saying??? We stopped at a fast-food place to order a takeaway, so that we could try out the new ketchup holder; an event to be videoed and uploaded… Not to be missed; this award-winning event!!!

Now with our fast-food in our hands I maneuvered the car into a parking spot and placed the ketchup into the holder, a sight to behold and you missed out…. It was just so exciting and then we decided to be brave and drive down the street and eat the French-fries at the same time, but then it happened….I had to break hard and you can guess what happened????
The ketchup in the holder spilled into the air-vent and flew everywhere else in the car too, making for a disappointing experience with my new ketchup holder that I was so proud of… But who cares! I pulled over to the side of the road and cleaned-up the mess, simple as that….
Though to be honest I do have some thoughts about later on, and that the car could smell like ketchup… Though when the heat is on full and there I am driving down the road, I can have the feeling of being surrounded by the fragrance of ketchup, in the summer…I don’t want to think about it!!!

After spending a great time spending our money in the mall we started walking towards my car, and we saw a crowd of people around my car which seemed a bit questionable, until I got closer and asked someone “What is going on here?“. They said that the person who owns that car has a new ketchup holder and the owner of the car…….A real NEWS MAKER!!!

After I said “ I own the car”…. The crowd went ecstatic saying they saw our videos online, and just had to know more about it and me…. My thought was “ how easy to create a hype with such a stupid thing….

My advice is…Don’t tell anyone if you have bought the ketchup holder, because you don’t want to cause envy amongst your friends…. Enjoy your ketchup!!!!!

My Handbag hasn’t got a Leak yet…

Really now, there is something for everyone nowadays, and that includes the lovers of handbags… including me!!
I just got to reading earlier this morning and low and behold what article popped into my face.. Yes, a handbag that serves/ holds your favorite beverage…
Not like you think though… it has a built-in thingy that holds your beverage of choice… and to be honest, okay, if you don’t want others to know that you are taking a nip of a certain beverage, but otherwise I am not tooooo convinced of its functionality, and a spigot on the side of the bag is not my idea of a good looking hand bag nor of cleanliness either. Or am I just out of it when it comes to fashion statements???

Plus, a small bottle of water or the sorts is just as good and just imagine, you fill your handbag up with a beverage and the container springs a leak… Then what!!! Scream or cry or maybe even both, if you’ve got some precious things in your handbag…..

My eyes are watering already with that thought… or even worse my Mascara is running down my face at this thought…. Everything is ruined, but then to prevent this I need the super duper waterproof bag in a bag to prevent the worst case scenario….

But, you never know… Invited to a party or out with friends … You got it!! Beverages are on hand and if a group of you have the same sort of handbags then…. Hey, let’s have a party!!! Drinks galore!!! I mean really, I always have a couple of cups in my hand bag for such occasions; should I run into a friend with that sort of handbag. I bet you have cups in your handbag, too???

Though I must be honest here and say that none of my friends have such handbags… Why they don’t I cannot say… Sorry
A somewhat concerning thought for me is while I am out and about and may have a bit of red wine left over from last evening in my bag( please don’t tell anyone my secret here) and I accidently catch the spigot on my clothing …. Then a red wine stain and how do I explain that at work and hope that everyone believes me???? Any answers???
Plus, how do I clean this beverage container thingy handbag?? I feel really perplexed with such thoughts.. Or who cares …

Another thought is how much does such a handbag cost and where can I buy one, should I ever what one??? And does it have a built in cooling system for those hot days in the summer or does it keep my beverages warm in the winter and what does it weigh…. These questions need to be answered, don’t they and I bet you thought the same as I was thinking, but just afraid to ask those questions… Don’t be, because no question is too dumb, if you don’t know the answer…

Though, should any of you out there own such a handbag, please do let us all know and maybe even send us a picture of you using it… Thanks, we are all curious, too!

Enjoy you handbag no matter what style it is….

Christmas is over….

Well Christmas is over and now we are counting the days until the New Year 2017…. My how time fly’s!

Though Christmas is not that far in the past and so many people seem not to gotten the present they hoped for and want to return it to where it was purchased and exchange it for something else that they like… this seems like a normal thing with lots of people, but I must be lucky because I am always happy with what I receive and never want to return anything that I get.

And now there are the over abundance of tips as to what to do with the leftovers from Christmas dinner and how to store all the food properly, as if it is something new all these food hacks (ideas/tips) nothing has changed, just the design of the plates the food is served on and as for storing the food, common sense I hope still exists and we know what to do.

Though like every year now there are the tips on how to lose those extra Christmas pounds in time for New Years Eve, so you can wear that new little outfit…. I think I’ll skip that and wait and enjoy myself instead of worrying… I feel better already!
Nothing worse than not being able to enjoy yourself…. Everyone around you is eating and drinking something, and there you are saying” Sorry, no thanks. I am on a diet until 31 December”… Just image the comment or the facial expression of the person you say that too…. They will/would probably think you’re nuts!!

Sorry got a bit sidetracked here. I think I’ll just put my feet-up and take it easy and enjoy myself and forget about all the food hacks,diets,etc….

Enjoy yourself too….Christmas is over only once a Year!

Easter Again

Just waiting around the corner for us „ Easter“ , yes those couple of days off and time to eat more chocolate and enjoy what is in store for us. You probably know that I never really did the Detox diet and now there is the problem with Easter…… The time itself isn’t a problem but all that chocolate out there trying to get my attention when I walk into a store and it is screaming out at me “buy me”….

There seems to be chocolate Easter bunnies lurking in every corner of every store and they seem to follow my around the store too…. Hopefully I won’t have a chocolate bunny nightmare!!! OMG….. The thought of “CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNIES INVADE LOCAL STORE” … Now that’s a headline!!
But my worries are that there may not be an after Easter diet like there is for other times of the year. This I see as a major problem. Not that I am on a diet or dieting, it is just the fact that I want to look at all those glossy magazine covers and see what the latest dieting fads are, and all I see now is recipes for Easter brunch , cook a great meal for a crowd( okay with a crowd…… Sorry folks my place isn’t big enough for everyone, maybe next time).
What am I going to cook and is it going to look like what I see in those magazines….

Nothing could be worse than…. Just imagine: nothing looks like the pictures; then what…. Okay, thank goodness I saved the magazines. All I have to do is cut out the pictures of the dishes and then place them next to the dish that I cooked, so that if anyone isn’t sure what it should look like all they have to do is look at the picture I cut out and placed next to the food…. Problem solved and everyone is happy or at least I hope so?????
Oh and not to forget the right table deco stuff too… There I need to invest about $500, 00 to have my table look like in the magazine and everything looks so perfect too. If my table looked like that I wouldn’t let anyone touch anything, and say to everyone “You can look at the deco and take pictures & selfies too if you like, but please don’t touch anything”. I know it doesn’t sound very nice but with all the effort and money I would invest, I don’t want my Easter event to be spoiled by one of my friends getting the idea that they can sit at the table and enjoy what they are seeing. NO it will be a simple eat in the kitchen affair and the dining room will be corded off to visitors…. You know sort of like in a museum.
Thank goodness that idea is taken care of, because I have sooooo much to prepare for Easter and so, I am sorry to say I have to stop writing here and leaf through all the magazines to decide what to do and what to eat on Easter and this alone requires a lot of time, even though I know the Easter stuff has been in all the stores since after Christmas….

I am a last minute Easter person, but don’t tell my friends! Thanks and don’t forget to plan your Easter too!

This year too….

Like every year it starts off with a bang from the fireworks and then it’s there the commercials and ads for dieting to lose weight that you may have put on during the holiday season … Me; I don‘t gain weight!!

My clothes may have shrunk in size, maybe I washed them in tooo warm water, but, no it can’t be true that I gained weight during the holiday season!! Though according to all the ads and new diets to try I must have!! I could scream, maybe that would help…

I got to looking at some of those promising diets out there that will give me a figure like a goddess in 12 weeks ( really I have to suffer eating pea sized amounts of food for 3 months …. Neh… too much work for me!!) Then after I finish that diet I have to think about the summer bikini diet…. Though no worries… I think I’ll pass on that one too!! I’m past the bikini stage of life and if I put one on I would probably scare everyone off the beach if they saw me….. AHHHH

This year I thought I need to go on a diet at least once in my life, so after watching all the commercials on TV and glancing magazines; I decided on a magazine that offers a DVD workout too…. Now I am on the way to my goddess figure…. Watch out world!!!

I rushed home with my magazine the other day and just the name of this diet “ Detox your system and easy Yoga”. Really now, what could be easier?? I ask…. I looked at the recipes and jotted down what I need to buy ( I will be bankrupt once I buy everything on the list). Okay I’ll admit not all recipes are for me and don’t look very tasty either. I’ll just make the ones that I like and skip the others.

But, before I start I need to watch the DVD with the easy yoga exercises that will turn my figure into ……. Who knows what by the time I am finished….. Let’s wait and see! Oh, I forgot to mention that I even bought new yoga training clothes to make my workout better.

I popped the DVD into the TV and got ready for action….. There are 3 sections for each part of your body and lots of stuff to read before starting. To be honest I am starting to feel tired already, so I think I’ll get myself a cup of tea and then sit down and watch the first section which is 15 minutes long (all sections are). Not to forget this is for everyone as it says. I feel relieved to know this…. Thanks

The music starts( not very motivating) there the women shows me what to do and carries-on for the 15 minutes and telling me how much fun all this is… Somehow I seem to be missing the action, and it all seems like toooo much work for me! I hit the FF button and skip to the detox recipe ( I hope it tastes good, because I am getting hungry after watching all that exciting action!!)

There before my eyes Miss Yoga starts making a detox drink out of various green veggies and keeps saying that it doesn’t taste good but you should drink it… I started counting how many times she said it tasted terrible and she said it at least 10 times, so there is no way that I am going to make myself one of those green concoction drinks… No,thank-you!!!

After my afternoon filled with a DVD exercises and the detox recipe; I already feel as if I have lost at least 3 pounds, so I think that I can take it easy for the rest of the next 12 weeks and wait for the next new bikini diet DVD to be with the next magazine and I can watch it too and see those pounds just melting away as I sitting on my sofa enjoying a good workout watching a DVD.

Enjoy your dieting whichever one you choose!

A Couple of Calories Today

With all the talk and articles about the calories in drinks and food I am not too sure about what are they all trying to tell me……… A surmounting amount of questions…… and the worries never stop…OMG

With the fashionable coffee drinks of the season with the trillions of calories that will probably make me fall over just looking at it. I wonder why everyone is up in arms about the calories…… no one is forcing me to drink those beverages, and I can choose what I like to drink and if I want one of those trillion calorie drinks then I am simply going to drink it; whether it is healthy for me or not.

The same holds true for the food we eat ….. Trillions of calories in everything and nothing is healthy…. One week this and the next week that …. I just can’t seem to keep up with all these calories loaded foods let alone the money I would have to spend each week changing my diet to keep-up with the latest fad…. This is all too mind boggling for me.

Plus, to top it off, I am still alive and managing without all those reminders that I had a piece of toast with butter or I ate 2 eggs for breakfast and downed it with a couple of cups of coffee and to make things worse had a glass of orange juice. Sugar in the orange juice, cholesterol in the eggs and butter and fat in the butter, oh and not to forget the caffeine in my coffee and my day has just started….

Then there is lunch with its dangers lingering somewhere in the shadows of my life. I think I’ll go for a salad. Is it healthy????? Maybe or maybe not…. With no salad dressing I am on the safe side or maybe just a honeymoon salad then I know for sure I am eating healthy, and a glass of water to down the bland tasting leaves of the salad. I feel like I am the picture of health now!!

But there is the afternoon coffee-break there just tempting me to drink one of those flavorful beverages with only a trillion calories ….. I want one but all the articles say they are bad for me. I stare through the window of the coffee shop admiring all those people who are sitting there enjoying themselves without a care in the world and no thoughts about the trillion calories either…. Tears swell in my eyes as trillions of little calories prance through my brain and they get the best of me and I go inside and order and enjoy a trillion calories and who cares, because it is only winter once a year and I need to enjoy myself sometimes and do all those things that the articles try to make me worry about.

No worries here and of those trillions of calories….. Well hey, Life is like that and everyone has to make up their own minds!
