Nail polish and Names

I just read that the names of some nail polishes aren’t gal friendly. To be honest I never paid much attention to that before. I just went into the store picked out a color that I liked or thought would fit to the outfit I was wearing and bought it….. Never ever thinking about the name…. How could I be so thoughtless?? I guess maybe it comes with age…
And because I have nothing better to do on “Good Friday” then check out my nail polish…. Great way to kill time if there’s nothing else to do around the house or not in the mood for house work!

The names on the bottles are great and I would never in my entire life associate them with the color.

540 – Poetic: what is poetic about that?? I haven’t figured it out yet. The number or is the name to make me feel once I have applied the polish to my nails I will feel like everything will just be …lalala

270-hot shot: That’s pretty clear – bright color and I feel cool…. As long as the polish doesn’t chip in the course of the day, otherwise I don’t feel like such a” hot shot”.

142- Grey to be here- defiantly a color for when you’re not in such a good mood…. World watch out because my nails are telling you something that you don’t know!!!!

26- Pink passion – watch out!!! Now I know I look good when wearing this color and my guy just knows by the name on the bottle that “ romance “ could be just around the corner… AFTER my nails dry!

780- Crazy about green: Happy Easter!!! No more snow

106 – Free hugs – Great name but sorry folks… I do not hug strangers!!

660 – Pink it up – Ok…. It’s pink and my nails look gooooood!

But then there are the colors that are just numbers…. OK …. Boring! I am wearing number 22 on my nails today and what number do you have on today? Doesn’t sound too good and makes life boring!

Then there’s the great top coat to protect your nails from…. Good question or the base coat… all these sound like something that you would paint a piece of wood with and not my nails. But maybe no one has ever looked at it like that before… Any answers

So enjoy your nail polish no matter what the name of it is and have a great Easter!

App to Happ

Now there’s finally something that will make my day a happy one – the “happy app” or if I need to lose weight the –”weighty app” ( the real names I don’t know) but to just stare at the screen of my cell phone and be hypnotized into thinking that I am happy or will lose weight seems a bit farfetched. But if you have more money than you know what to do with then by all means beeeee cooooool and buy the thing.

I have made-up some pill color examples :

I can see some positive advantages to getting one of those little pictures of a pill…… I show the green pill a symbol for money to my guy when I am a bit strapped for cash and after 30 seconds he says” Honey how much do you need?” – I feel better already just at that thought. No need to worry. Or it could be great at the office. Just imagine, normally you worry about how can approach your boss for a pay rise???? No problem!!! Just show your boss the screen of your cell phone with the “green pill” on it and after 30 seconds…. He/ she says; “of, course you can.” Now that’s something to smile about!!! So I am happy…..

Then there’s probably the”yellow pill” for the day when the sun isn’t shining. Again look at the little “yellow pill” and there you are sitting on the beach enjoying yourself soaking up a little sunshine. The wonders of the imagination… Mine still works, thank goodness!
But this app could be a real nerve saver at the office when everyone is in a bad mood… go around to your colleagues and show them the app and I am sure that would lighten their spirits up. But be careful the boss doesn’t catch you and get mad at you, because then you need the “yellow & black pill” – for how to make my boss in a better mood – use sparingly.

With the “black pill” one should take heed and not over do it, but if you want others to be in a bad mood , because maybe your spirits are down then this “black pill” is good….. Can’t be happy all the time! Just a quick glance at the” black pill” and it makes you feel that something isn’t going the way it should be… a gray cloud is looming overhead!!

Then there’s the “pink pill” for gals…. USE WITH EXTREME CAUTION!!! This is the shopping pill. Just a quick glimpse at this pill and you are in a trance and ready for a day out at the mall…. But beware; do you have enough small change in your handbag for this adventure?????

Guys there is something for you too – the “orange pill” this little pill once you look at it puts you in the right frame of mind for an evening out with the guys to watch the game. NOTE: this is not recommended for gals!

And not to forget the “invisible pill” this is for those on diets. Just one look at the “invisible pill” and your hunger is cured. Don’t know the exact scientific principle but, I guess its trial and error with this one and no guarantee.

I wonder if you need a prescription for these pills and are they sold at your local drug store alongside the aspirins and such???? Next time your there could you check for us? – Thanks

GREAT TIE FOR THAT GUY?

I know that recently I have been somewhat lax on writing about great things for guys, so I thought this here would make up for my thoughtlessness…. Sorry guys. There are guys who have to wear ties and this can be especially aggravating if it isn’t the right sort of tie. Who said ties have to be borning??? Not me!!!

Well, your worries are solved with the flask tie…. I’m not well versed on how it actually looks but it seems to take on the features of a normal tie except that it has a special spot for your schnapps or whatever you want to nip at discreetly in the tie itself.. My guy needs one of these for the office to create a bit of cheer.

You guys thought that the trouser beer pouch was something but this may top it for the executives out there who don’t want to unzip their trousers at a meeting for a quick beer, so instead they can open up the little flask in their tie and enjoy a small shot of whiskey or whatever it is they are carrying around with them in their tie. My how times are changing…… flasks aren’t like they used to be.

Ok, guys and gals I will give you a short version of how I see this great tie flask and I am sure it could be something worth putting under the tree this year for your guy who has everything except a flask tie!

Ok, you must carefully fill it up and not toooo much because the plastic pouch may not hold too much and then your tie will bulge and not hang properly. That I see as a major problem guys! Ok, we’ll over look this minor setback and concentrate on the positive features that it has.

There you are at and important meeting and there seems to be a bit of a lull and no one is really saying much, so you think “AH” let’s have a little nip of whiskey and there you go the boring meeting is already cheered-up and the other guys there are waiting for you to get your flask out and serve up some drinks. No, that’s the surprise here and believe me those guys will be really amazed and jealous too when they see that you have a sewn in flask in your tie and can give everyone a thimble size shot…. That’s a meeting at its best… RIGHT???? No more dull boardroom meetings but now there’s the competition of who has the best flask tie meeting and this can brighten things up! Now an important fact to remember is no cut rate cheap stuff only the best whiskey can be decanted into your tie.

Another thing you must watch out for is that no one bumps into you or else your tie could bust and that is the end of your flask tie and you smell like a brewery…. That is definitely a horrid thought because if that happened your meeting is ruined and maybe your career too… The troubles with ties… I am glad I am not a guy.

I know this isn’t really some earth moving thing but for guys who wear ties it could be and if you are out with your tie on you can always discreetly- I emphasize again discreetly take a nip from your tie when you feel like it. Otherwise, folks may wonder what you are up too with your tie and believe me I am sure people could imagine many a thing and it would not be that your tie had a flask it. So do take heed when out and about and if you are on a date I am sure the gal will be sooooo impressed with the tie that she will definitely want to have a second date with you, because I am sure the gal doesn’t get asked out too often by guys who have flask ties.

So gals if your guy has to wear a tie to work maybe this is something that is a must have for all tie wearing guys out there. So, guys don’t forget to put this nifty tie on your wish list from Santa and by all means please let me know what everyone thinks of it.
Enjoy your ties guys!

Make-up Maintenance

As always the sunny days are over and since my skin isn’t as young as it used to be it needs a little help and sure enough make-up is there to solve all those little skin blemishes.. Or at least I hope so???

I noticed when I was looking the other day for some new make-up that there’s a whole new range out there that will make my skin like a new piece of wood or metal. The wording was great on the labels and never before did I realize that human skin had taken on the characteristics of metal or wood.

So, I guess now-a-days that without my primer as it’s called my skin won’t be able to retain the make-up on its surface. The thought of all those years that I have been walking around not knowing that I needed a primer for my skin could make me scream!!!!

I thought primer was used for other material and not for use on the skin or have those manufactures just re-colored the primer from the DIY store and put it in little make-up tubes to sell it to unsuspecting females…… All I can say here is – Not me, I’m not putting any primer on my face no matter what the packaging looks like.

Or there was the maintenance cream ….. Please tell me what the heck is that supposed to do??????

Isn’t the word maintenance also to do with machinery ???? Guys, I need your help here…..HELP

With my maintenance cream on my face and my primer smeared on top then I guess I am ready for any stressful situation that involves some sort of machinery or wood, or metal. But another thought just popped into my mind. I bet those creams are made for gals who are mechanics or craftsperson’s, so the cream that they put on their faces gives them a special feeling associated with their work… Sounds good or not???

Not to forget the high-tech creams too. Those are for gals in the computer branch –I guess. But then again those cream manufactures seem to be forgetting a couple of other professions where gals may wear make-up too.

Otherwise, I cannot think of one good reason for such names for cosmetics for women, though the products are probably made by guys and they just weren’t thinking when they thought of names for the products. And thier thoughts may have been on building themselves a garden shed where they could meet-up for a beer after work. So that’s where all the names came from… good theory, if you ask me. Ok, I know you didn’t!

I have to be honest here and say I will not be putting any primer or maintenance cream, or high-tech cream on my face.
I like the normal names because I am a gal who likes gal stuff and not all those other nonsense names given to a product that promise me the world and at the end of the day it’s a plain old moisturizer in disguise.

Perfect Day Today?

The perfect day has finally arrived and we can now all enjoy it if you have enough time and don’t work otherwise I don’t think the perfect day would work??? Or am I missing something here….

In the perfect day you only have about 36 minutes for work, so how do I manage a perfect day when I have to work 8-10 hours a day???………The answer is easy; fit this into your day and you will have a perfect day.

So my perfect day in a week would be as follows:

Ok, forget taking a shower and getting dressed after I get-up because that just doesn’t seem to fit into the plan for a perfect day, so I’ll go to work in my pj’s( I guess). Note: the scientist seemed to forget that people normally get cleaned up before they leave the house… Where were their brains???? That question you can answer yourself. Thank you

Well, I do have time for breakfast, say about 15 minutes and then I’m out of here and on my way to work. Another problem there is only 33 minutes a day allotted to commuting. Now what???? I feel my day may not be sooooo perfect now! But I am sure if I leave out something else I will be able to have a perfect day. But all the other stuff in a perfect day is fun too…. I want a perfect day!!!!

Finally at work now I have 48 minutes for my computer, so I’ll have to stretch this out over the day otherwise I may not look busy. So, I think I will make a couple of calls to my friends and so that gives me about 58 minutes divided by 3 and so each for my friends get 19.33 minutes of my time. I better set the timer so I don’t go over 19.33 minutes. I hope my friends won’t get upset??? But then again they want to have a perfect day too….

Now that I have called all my friends I have 78 minutes to relax and think about what I can do the rest of my perfect day. But the sad part now is none of my friends have time to meet-up this afternoon because we could spend a whole 82 minutes together on a normal perfect day. Where’s my perfect day?????????

But I could have a little nap at my desk- I have 46 minutes to shut my eyes. Though with this perfect day I still haven’t done any work and when the boss comes into my office then it will definitely NOT BE A PERFECT DAY!!!

I still haven’t had a perfect day at work, but instead I have gotten some strange looks and asked by my colleagues at work “Why am I still in my pj’s” – I said today is a perfect day and there is no time for getting dressed in a perfect day. I am not sure if my answer satisfied them or they just thought that I had gone bonkers. I would tend to think the latter that I had gone bonkers!

Ah, forget work I’ll just go home and maybe go shopping there I have 58 minutes.. I better be quick or else I won’t be able to fit all my shopping into my perfect day. I am starting to feel tired again but since I used up my nap time earlier I have no more time for relaxing…..I’m starting to feel stressed out… what should I dooooo????

I’ll just go home and putter around the house for 47 minutes and then watch some TV until my guy comes home and then I have 50 minutes to whip us up a great meal. I hope I can manage that job??? Great thing about a perfect day there is no time left for arguing about something. Now that does make for a perfect day.

The highlight of a perfect day is that you have 106 minutes for you partner. Now that’s something or??? What you do in that time is up to you. I know what I would do and timing is of the essences. Don’t want to ruin a perfect day… eh??????

Enjoy your perfect day where ever you are in the world and don’t forget to keep an eye on the clock or else you won’t have that perfect day…. Enjoy yourself!!

Fashion Blunders

You won’t believe it but men actually don’t tell their gals the truth about their figure. So, letting the gal waste her hard earned cash on fashion that doesn’t look good on her.

Well, if you ask me that just takes the cake!!! How can you guys be so heartless to us gals?

What happened to the old saying: “Honesty is the best policy” I guess that doesn’t hold true anymore and honesty seems to have been flushed down the toilet.

When I go shopping with my guy (not very often) I hope for an honest answer when I ask him: How does this look on me? Though it is a bit tough to keep his attention focused on me and not have him end up talking to some other guy about what ever and I have to try to get his attention or he has somehow put his brain in an energy saving mode and so it doesn’t matter what I say he will say “good idea; looks good”

Men don’t really seem to concentrate on what is going on when you go shopping with them and seem to think they are there only to hold the bags. Well maybe this is true in some cases but not in my case. I want my guy to participate in my choosing an outfit, but he is just plain not interested.

Or maybe guys are worried if they tell the truth their gal could get upset and then there could be a heated discussion. I’m not sure, but guys you could be a bit more honest with us, so we could save our and maybe your money and avoiding that horrid purchase that we will never wear in your life.

Gals we have all done this – someone says “oh, that looks great on you.” And you think maybe their right and buy it. Home you go hang it in your closet and there it hangs for the next 6 months and then rediscovered. You take it out look at it and think to yourself “why did I buy this?” it looks terrible on me and it makes me look out of proportion. And then you hang it back in the closet forever, never to be worn.

And you think to yourself “If I had only listened to my feelings.” I would have never bought that. But another one is my guy bought me something and thinks I look great in it and I think the opposite and if I told him the truth he would be deeply upset. Why can’t honesty work both ways when it comes to fashion for gals?

I think the best method to avoid all this is to go shopping either alone or with a good friend. So then there’s no stress in the relationship or HOPEFULLY no wrong fashion purchases…. I need to go shopping now

Enjoy shopping and remember be honest about how it looks!

Ironing Board Blues

It is an unbelievable fact but there are guys out there in the world who don’t know how to iron. How this can be true is beyond me and I can only say thank heavens I don’t have that problem!

There was a diagram for guys as to how to iron a shirt and I must add the person who wrote the article and designed the picture to go along with it mustn’t have ever ironed in their lives. Who in their right mind uses the edge of the couch for an ironing board?

The thought alone that you could burn yourself with the iron is enough for me to not even think about ironing like that. That journalist should have consulted their mother before writing that article so then they could write the article correctly. Moms always know how to iron.

The problem with the article was that they didn’t tell the guys that they needed: an iron and an ironing board to make the job go easier. These two things can really make ironing easier guys, so if you are going to iron please do it right. We gals have an eye for things and know if a guy is wearing something ironed or not.

Plus a tip for all you guy ironers out there – spray starch can do wonders on a shirt and makes it look good too.

But besides the ironing there seems to be a couple of other areas that guys are struggling to come to grasps with.

Sewing a button on a shirt – didn’t your mother teach you how to do this?

Folding clothes – now here you really need to practice and it doesn’t take too long to fold things correctly once you know how.

And the all fatal problem – Can’t tie a tie -> that is a real catastrophe when a guy can’t do that!

Whatever happened to the home economics classes in high school that taught guys how to do all those things that they need to know to survive in the domestic world. When I was in high school all guys had to learn those things whether they liked it or not! And if you didn’t go to the class you got in trouble and no questions asked.

Maybe they should start some sort of evening school for all those guys who never learned the basics in life. I just don’t understand the world anymore when a guy can’t sew a button on or tie his tie…

That makes me really wonder where are we heading?

So guys if you are having some difficulties with your domestic chores then learn to do them right and learn to tie a tie; which is one of the most important skills in life.

Help I’m not wearing make-up

Low and behold another earth moving statistic about women wearing make-up. Couldn’t those researchers find something else to research besides make-up?

I was brought up with the idea that you shouldn’t wear make-up 24/7 so as to let your skin breath. But what do I know???

Now-a-days a gal wouldn’t step foot out of the house without paint on her face because it is too stressful for her, and let alone go on a date because the guy may see what she really looks like. What’s the world turning into when a gal is afraid that someone may see her without make-up on?? Does anyone have an answer????

Just image a guy decides to spend the night at your place for the first time and he wakes up in the morning only to be shocked by what he sees and almost has a heart attack because he has never seen the gal without make-up on her face. The guy may think that he has landed in the wrong bed with a stranger and not who he thought he went home with. Poor guy!

Whatever happen to the good’ol facial cream, mascara and lipstick? With those three simple products you can look good too. But when you use only those three products then the make-up industry could go broke.

What is it with all those companies trying to manipulate us gals into thinking that if we don’t wear make-up we’ll be stressed out. I ask myself: How have I survived so long by not always wearing make-up when I leave the house?

My boyfriend knows what I look like without make-up on and he finds it good. I am not ashamed of how my skin looks without make-up on and other gals shouldn’t be either.

Our skin was made that way and the real version can look good too. I have nothing against wearing make-up but why should you have to hide behind it, because sooner or later everyone you know will see you without it on.

Years ago the natural look was in but those days seem to be gone and it seems that everyone is hiding behind their make-up from the real world but they expose themselves on social networks on the internet without make-up, So where’s the sense in these studies if they are true at all and what are they trying to achieve with them???

I think gals should be a bit more confident and enjoy a make-up free day and you will be surprised at how nice it can be.

My Husband’s skin

As you all remember last week I mentioned that my husband had and still has stressed-out skin. Well I thought on Saturday evening while we were dinning out at the local pizzeria that I would broach the subject again.

I had been thinking all week about what should I say to my husband and how can I ask him about his stressed out skin. I also noted that he didn’t buy himself any facial cream or if he did, than he had it hidden in his desk drawer at work so I wouldn’t know about it. Though this I doubt very much because sometimes he can be a real tight wad when it comes to buying things that he or we really need. This I believe could be a male trait and females tend to be more lighthearted with their money (at least that’s how I see it).

Anyways, during the course of the meal I popped the question about the facial cream because on Tuesday morning when the alarm clock went off I almost fell out of bed when he rolled over and wanted to give me a kiss. You should have seen his face with those words “stressed-out skin” written all over it. I just couldn’t kiss him because I was in such a state of shock with heart palpitations!!!!

And when I asked “Honey, did you buy yourself any facial cream this week?” I gave me a look and said “It’s none of your GD business.” I thought boy is he in a bad mood and why is he so upset about my question? I mean really, I am a caring wife and only want the best for him and it seems that because his skin is stressed-out that he is stressed out too. I will never understand the male species.

So after we finished our meal in silence (I am sure many of you know what I am talking about here). I suggested that we go quickly to the mall before it closes. And thank goodness he agreed to drive there or else I wouldn’t have managed the rest of the weekend!!!

Once at the mall I decided it is better if we meet-up in an hour otherwise this could end up in a heated conversation and that I really wanted to avoid at all costs.

So as we went our separate ways I headed right for the shop that sells beauty products and creams. Once inside I explained to the sales woman my problem and she told me that: “you know there’s a lot of that going around at the moment so you better be careful or else.” I wondered to myself what does “or else” mean. She got me thinking but I thought to myself that I had to keep a clear head.

While I was standing there waiting for the sale woman to return with the facial cream that I wanted; who walks into the store -> low and behold “MY HUSBAND”!!!! He asked me what I was doing there. And I told him” Buying him a facial cream.” There was a moment of silence because he didn’t know what to say and then he said to me that was so nice of me to care for him. I just smiled at him and he started to explain to me why he was soooo up set earlier in the evening.

My husband said that on the meeting on Monday (all guys) that they decided to meet-up again on Wednesday with their pie charts to discuss the problem of “stressed-out skin” and that according to statistics that they had gathered (source unknown) this seemed to be a rampant problem worldwide and that there were beauty farms popping up everywhere to take care of this problem and that next month he and his pie chart guys are going to one of these for a business trip wellness weekend.
I told him “good luck” because some of you may really need a wellness weekend to get unstressed.

I just hope after this trip that my husband won’t have this problem anymore and that any of you male readers reading this take note: Don’t let stressed out skin ruin your weekend.
