Time

Time you all know this word and probably think to your self what the heck is she going to write about here??? Exactly … Time… not the magazine but “time” itself.

There is “on time”, “in time”, “just in time” and so on. Have you ever thought about how many times a day you use the word time? I bet not, well I have because “time” is a good word, which means everything nowadays in society.

Looking back when I heard the sentence “My how time fly’s” I thought what a joke, and who ever thought up that sentence, was old fashioned. Okay, nowadays you would say “how vintage” …. I need to keep-up with the times. Right?

My how times have changed, too. Or Have they really changed that much? Not really in the past few years. But time is a precious thing which should be appreciated in some way or another. Okay enough philosophical nonsense here with good ol-time.

This time I was thinking about something else.

Like procrastinating is a great time killer and you know exactly what I mean here, too. We all do it when we don’t feel like doing something, but maybe some people are better at it than others.

Recently, since spring is here and the yearly calling of “Spring Cleaning” popped-up again…. Who ever thought of that is not my friend (or maybe they would like to pop by and spend some time clean-up my place?… If so, please let me know! Thanks) because this time of year is not for cleaning, okay maybe the windows so I can see what is going on outside, otherwise, things haven’t changed since the last season’s clean-up.

It seems the real change is the new spring wardrobe and this time I am not too sure what has changed??
But I was informed that this season’s sneakers should be “White”, because that is in… My golly that color has been around for a long time. The young sales assistant persisted on telling me how great the color white is for sneakers and that it was never in before.
I mean really, just by looking at me she could see that I was over (let’s say over 25). But it never occurred to her, until I said that “I think this color has been around for years even for sneakers.”
That comment didn’t go over too good with the young girl who apparently wasn’t trained to deal with customer like me. But who cares!

I left the shoe store and bee lined for the next shoe store to get a real overview of the current sneaker season situation… This time I needed facts and wanted to see a store that offered a larger range. There must have been at least 100 pairs of sneakers in white. How many feet do I have… Exactly 2, and when would I have the time to wear them all?

It was/ is only the spring collection and not the summer or any other season!!! Though I will admit a couple of pairs caught my eye, but not enough to buy them… But what was good after I left the shoe store there was an ad from a well- know online store; which had written on its “electronic billboard” (energy saving-Ahoy!) Back to the wording: They advertised: “Sneaker”

Don’t we normally wear sneakers? Or am I missing something here this time or is it so that people only buy one sneaker now and the other foot is without a sneaker??? I would like an answer to this from the online platform, please!

After reading that I had to laugh to myself about how many more times will I see this ad? Don’t answer!
Now a time later it was/is spring sale time for all these great sneakers and other items which I am not too sure who will buy them?? We don’t even have summertime yet.

Boy how seasons are flying by. I need time to think about all this and wait for the next time the season’s fashions change again.

Now it is time to bring this to an end. Enjoy your time with whatever you do!

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!!

What to Wear??

That is always a good question for us gals…What to wear or better said: What should I wear when I go out after? My closet is crammed full with fashionable items or at least in my eyes…. Maybe I should get my eyes checked then get back to you…..

But the 2015 summer fashion season has just begun and there are thousands of tips tricks and new or so they say styles out there just waiting for me. I want to be fashionable!! Though I must be honest some look the same as last summer only the price has changed and the color for 2015.

Now being a gal of frugal means I always take a closer look at all those great things on offer before making that all important decision as to what to buy for summer 2015. I have this dilemma every year and somehow it always seems to creep-up on me unexpectedly without warning… I am sure some of you gals out there know what I am talking about??? There is the new pair or pairs of sandals, maybe a dress or two, shorts, tops, bathing suits, and so forth…. Plus, the matching make-up too.
Summers can be stressful!!

But as a gal who wants to be somewhat trendy I started taking a closer look at the fashion pages online and discovered some things that I already own, and that is for years now… So, I surfed a bit more only to be confronted again with things that I already own…. Okay the color is different, but the style is the same!! There you go…. A major problem is brewing and the season isn’t even in full swing yet!!!

Of course I could always get advice from friends or other people, but what they like isn’t always what I like and how do you tell your friends that you don’t like what they have picked out without hurting their feelings??? I am sure you can relate to that…..

Plus, I need a bank loan to buy all that stuff… Sandals: $ 600.00, Shorts: $ 245.00, Hat: $ 165.00, Dress: $95.00 (cheap…. Buy 2), and last but not least a summer sweater for $ 308.00 …… And I still don’t have a bathing suit and the worst part is now there is no money left over for my summer vacation….. But I have expensive clothes and I hope everyone will notice that I paid a small fortune for them too!!!! Please note the labels, so you know that I am a cool person!! Coolness here I come…..

Though maybe I could do without the hat and wear my hat from last year…. Do you think anyone would notice???? Probably not, so I’ll take the chance and wear it this year too. I feel better already by saving a bit of money…… But still the thought is lingering in the back of my mind…. I want to go on vacation, so it is either cool clothes or a cool vacation……. I think I have to think about this before I decide on looking cool or visiting a cool place….

No hasty decisions ….. Think about it!!

The Importance of a Woman’s Brain

Gal’s brains too are full of great things as I learned from this past weekend’s newspaper too… Now I can honestly say that I can finally understand myself after all these years… Ok, it’s taken awhile but I know now!!!

It is said that gal’s brains are divided into sections too, so that we have at least something in common with guy’s brains… what a small world it seems to be!!!

Diet section: I’ve been watching my weight for years, but I can always find something new to think about when it comes to dieting like: no candy bars for the next 2 days.. And now I already feel better with this thought because it is part of my diet.

Hair section: A nightmare when your hair doesn’t look good and I have a bad hair day…. No more thoughts today except my hair … OMG!!!!!

What to wear section: Oh, that takes up a major section of my brain and when I open my closet door and stand there I have make that all decisive decision “ what do I wear today?” – You can sort of compare this to a multi-million dollar decision as to how to run a company… But running a company could be easier!!!

Shoe section: Key section and equal to the “what to wear section”…. I love my shoes so much that my brain cells are shaped like shoes… to keep my thoughts focused.

Spending money section: Stores here I come!! But this section of the brain is connected to your wallet, so how much you spend depends on how much money is in your wallet… but a degree of happiness is always there.

Speaking section: Now, I would rate this as the utmost important section of a gal’s brain because many of us gal’s love to talk and I can only speak for myself… I could talk for hours and never run out of things to say!

So, gal’s when you put all those great sections of your brain together we have great thoughts, and talking about that… Have a happy time thinking about whatever it may be!

Have to be Happy?

Now here’s an eye opener. The happiness agency; how this operates I have no idea but I am sure that it will bring happiness to hundreds of people who visit it – hopefully ??????
Sure happiness is many different things and we all have different ideas as to how we are happy or will be happy. But an agency to help me be happy …. WOW!!! How can they do that???

Here it is: I am standing there with my number ( very important… don’t want to butt- ahead of anyone would I?) dreaming of how I will be happier.. I am happy or at least I thought I was, but then again I may be side tracked with my happiness thoughts and not have the right kind of happy thoughts.

What makes me and my guy happy??? Well lots of things my list could circle globe if I wrote them all down. Isn’t the saying” it’s the simple things in life that make us happy”. Ok, that is passé´- the thought we need is to be modern up-to-date and keep with the times no more old fashioned happy thoughts about simple things….. I need modern thinking, so what is modern happiness???

After pondering a bit on this questions and phoning around to a couple of my gal friends we came up with some ideas… ok, it’s our point of view and not the rest of the worlds view, but then again I haven’t the time to question everyone. So, sorry when I didn’t ask you, and please don’t be upset with me. Thank you!

Modern happiness could be:

1. Having a new cell phone so I can contact the world and be online to tell everyone that I just bought my phone…. Happiness – for how long???

2. New shoes – wow they look good and I only spent a month’s salary on them, but I’m worth it… Aren’t I or did I have some bills to pay???

3. A vacation …. Now that can bring happiness but it only lasts as long as no one gets into argument, but otherwise we’re having a great time… I am happy!!!

4. New watch – as long as one of my friends don’t go out and buy a more expensive model then I have… Then I’m not happy

5. New handbag – Life at its best for a gal and nothing can hold her back as long as she is carrying her new handbag with her or until an acquaintance buys an up-graded model! Life can be so painful when it comes to handbags….

It seems modern happiness is only attached to buying stuff and not to the inner happiness that we once knew or has that disappeared somehow through the years? I think it’s important to be happy but I don’t need an agency to help me be happy. I can be happy myself and I bet those other people could be too, if they wanted to and made an effort; instead of worrying about how can I spend my money and then I will be happy.

Have a happy day and remember it doesn’t cost a cent to smile…. That’s what so great about them!!!

Guys and Gals Are We Looking Good?

Everyone knows that looking good is really important but I bet you never thought about what that guy or gal thinks about what you are wearing. Now this tiny fact seems to be overlooked and so I thought I would highlight and interpret some of the great fashion looks that drive the other person to look at you….. Well, how to put it nicely???? Thinks what you have on is simply ugly…. But do they say that to your face or just keep their opinion to themselves???

As I am in a mood today…Good mood 😉 so I thought I would start with the blunders of what guys wear.

Spray-on suntans – Oh, please. Those look really bad or are they trying to look like a pumpkin… the color isn’t too far off.

Trousers from …. What year was it with the elastic ankles? Great if you are living where there are a lot of flies say in the Tundra or such an area but otherwise… Naja, they really don’t do anything for the wearer… Sorry

Jeans that look like you are carrying your toilet round with you. They are sooooo baggy that it looks like the wearer has a diaper on… Please, guys there are nicer jeans around then those.

The tourist looks … What you ask??? Socks with sandals… That is like wearing a sign around your neck saying “Hey I am on vacation here”! Clean your toe nails and wear real sandals, because it looks a lot better.

Naturally there are a couple of more but, I thought you could think about them yourself without my help here..

Now gals, I don’t want to leave us out here either in the not looking good club.

Now a real mistake is chipped nail polish or is that a new fashion statement. It only takes a couple of minutes to remove the chipped polish and … Bingo your nails look better.

Hair extensions that are made of plastic hair… look cheap and are cheap. Wouldn’t it be better to just leave your hair the way it is and plus then you can save your money for a real new hair cut that looks good.

Track suits… once they were only worn at the gym or at home, but now…. They are everywhere. What happened to our sense of fashion???

The real disaster…. Smudged mascara and make-up…. Oh, now that really doesn’t do anything for your looks does it???

I have taken heed since I noted these things and promised myself to watch out about how I look… I don’t want to land up in a bad fashion & bad hair category nor do I want my guy to land there either. Oh the perils of wanting to look good!

Fashion for the Fashionable

I would love to be fashionable. All I read lately is about the latest fashion trends how I should dress what I should buy and which make-up I should use…. Boy is it stressful being a woman just trying to keep-up with all this stuff, and where do I start first??? Hair, clothing or make-up… I am confused and need help! Plus to top things off there is the desk stationary that I need too for my office to match my mood or what I am wearing. Could life be more complicated????

Ok, I know I don’t visit all those fashion shows; I see enough of them on TV or you can read about it somewhere, so I know I won’t be left behind in the fashion jungle… Those models out there make me feel like I look like a whale. There is no way on earth that I will ever be able to fit into one of those slinky little dresses or teeter along the street in those high heels. Who wears that stuff??? I have never in my whole life up to now ever seen anyone wearing any of those outfits whether at a party or to work. They must be somewhere out there hiding from me… But where???

Now that fall/ autumn is approaching at the speed of light, there’s the need for the new fall hair cut… But which one?? I just had a summer hair cut and that was in then and my hair doesn’t grow that fast for the next season’s hair cut.. I’ll fall into the bad hair cut group of people … Last season’s hair cut.. OUTCH !! Hairdressers please be patient with us our hair takes time to grow.

Then there’s the right color of clothes to choose from that HOPEFULLY will be in for at least a month. The color pink was mention… I love pink but is that the right color for me and will it be out again at the end of the month before I even get a chance to get used to my new look??? Buying the wrong colored clothes may end in a disaster, because I don’t know what color will be in in October… Going to the office with the wrong colored outfit on will defiantly not get me a seat on the board of directors, but instead a little note saying” this month is not a pink month!” The trials and trivia of trying to keep-up with the fashion of today. Ohje

Not just that’s a problem to make sure I am wearing the right hat on my head too that I hope won’t ruin my summer haircut… Now what color do I buy and it must match my new fall coat… do I want to stand-out in a crowd or do I want a subdued color that signifies fall ??? I need help!!!

So far I seem to be having difficulties in deciding what to wear and how I should look, but thanks to all the advice out there I know what make-up to buy. Now if it matches my skin tone that’s another story but at least I can say I bought what is in for the fall season, and another little problem arises here too. Everything is sold in tubes that contain enough make-up for a year… Now what?? I can’t wear the September colored blusher in October. Everyone will notice it right away…

And all the beauty tips they seem to change from month to month too. Which tip do I use or where to I turn to for the right beauty tip of the month?? This is all so confusing. HELP!!

My final little problem is what stationary – what seasonal color should I have on my desk and do I need a pen that has ink in it with fall colors and if I send out something on the wrong colored stationary am I doomed as not having a fashionable desk?

Please everyone be patient with me when it comes to fashion trends; I just can’t keep up with them fast enough, So if we meet on the street don’t be surprised if I am wearing a color from last month and my hair cut is from the summer and my make-up isn’t the latest color either… that’s how life really is!!!

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!

Warm Weather and Winter Fashion

Well, summer is here and we can enjoy warm days on the beach and sit back and relax. So one thinks! Retailers have other thoughts in their minds like –WINTER

There I was the other day strolling down the street only to see in a store window winter apparel, by this I mean winter coats, sweaters and the lot. Whatever happened too cold weather fashions being sold when the weather starts to get cold? Do retailers know what the real calendar seasons are or do they have any idea about what sort of weather is outside? I doubt it

Now-a-days it seems that every season starts months before in stores and when the calendar season is there then you can forget about buying the seasons fashions because it is sold out.
I am not going to look for a winter coat when I could be enjoying the warm weather outside. Plus the thought alone makes me shiver…. I see snowflakes before my eyes and the sun is shining. Where’s my good weather app?

And to top it off, if I buy a winter coat now it may be out of fashion by the time the cold weather starts, so then I need to buy a new one to keep-up with the fashion trends. Though I will admit I am not always a “must have” person but more of “what I like” and not main stream.

The troubles of women’s fashion!!!

Ok, there’s a positive side to all this. All the summer apparel is on sale and if you are lucky- I stress LUCKY you may find some great bargains!! My life is saved… As a gal who loves to shop I wonder the stores in search of the perfect summer outfit and have you ever noticed that -> off to the sales you go with a fist full of cash and with the hope of finding that top, dress or pair of shoes that you wanted and you enter the store and maneuver your way through the crowds only to be disappointed by the fact that all those great bargains are not in your size.

The frustration of sales!!

But luck was on my side and I actually bought 1 item that I was looking for and saved a fortune. I love sales!!

A small request to all retailers… Please wait for fall for the winter fashions and not put it in the store window when it’s 80°F outside, because no one in their right mind will buy a winter coat to wear to the beach in the summer. Or am I mistaken????
