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!

Looking thinner in Jeans ?

Well, our worries are over with the new super girdle jeans. They are supposed to make you look thinner. But do they??

Well, since I got off work early today I thought I would stroll through the stores and try to find a great pair of girdle jeans. I know they have another more modern name but at the end of the day it’s like a girdle. I somehow like this name though I know stretch sounds better to us gals.

Once I was in a store that sold jeans I saw them there amongst the mature women’s fashion. I felt like I have been kicked in my shins when I saw the sign but then gave it another thought and asked the sales assistant “what age group are the jeans for because it says for mature women?”

Well , as always she told me it was for women over 40 and those jeans were right for me . I didn’t know what to say and asked: What if you are under 40; than do you have other sorts of jeans?

Now that question seemed to rile the sale assistant a bit because she didn’t know what to say to me. And said there are normal jeans. I thought now what are normal jeans?

Do you wear normal jeans or not normal jeans??

I thought my jeans I had on were normal but I must say I have never considered this fact before. I then decided to ask for a pair of those girdle jeans so I could try them on and see my great new figure in them.

So while waiting for a pair in my size I thought boy my guy is going to fall over when he sees me in these and will say” you look great!” Ok, I know I am dreaming ….. and he’ll more likely say “ oh, a new pair of jeans- nice.”

After squirming into the jeans I felt it could be a bit difficult to sit down and I think these jeans are made for a party where everyone is standing around trying to look good and you are not allowed to eat or drink anything either or else …. An explosion and they won’t be those skin tight girdle jeans but, the I popped the button jeans.

Jeans aren’t like they used to be.

Now-a-days they seem to make your figure look like a giant overstuffed thing. Years ago you could slip a pair of jeans on and wow they looked good. Everyone says that my figure has changed through the years. I find this hard to believe and think that their eyesight is failing them.

Jeans are just not what they used to be and no one can change my mind!!

I love my jeans but I don’t think my jeans love me like they used too and maybe some of you gals know exactly what I am talking about here. Our great jeans somehow don’t fit like they used too. I could cry!!

Why do jeans do that to us gals? Guys don’t have the jeans problem like we do or do you?
Jeans have been my faithful fashion companion for years and I don’t want to say good bye to them just yet either. Why don’t they make jeans that make mature women look attractive? Or are we a group that doesn’t count anymore?

Maybe, some company who makes jeans may read this and say, hey great idea and tell us that they make jeans that make our figure look good too without strech or a sewn in a girdle to flatten our tummies. I will be waiting!!

The Pleasures of Picnicking

Picnicking is a great thing when the weather warms up and the sun is shining. There’s nothing better than getting together with your partner or friends for a great picnic.

This is such a great way to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and see the countryside. But to make picnicking easier you need your picnic tray which attaches to your jeans and has a built in drinks holder so nothing will spill.
This wonderful set-up is a must for all picnickers and you can fold the tray up and place it in your jeans pocket when you are finished. I am not sure about the exact set-up but it has to be somewhat as I just mentioned.

So imagine you are bicycling along with your guy or gal and in the basket you have all the picnic supplies, such as food and drink, plus a blanket to sit on too. So no cold backside -> don’t want to get hemorrhoids now do we?

There is the spot nice and sunny by a river bank with ducks or swans on it. The perfect spot for a picnic! You spread out the blanket and place the food on it and stand there and think “my how lovely” but something seems to be missing? But what?

Ah, and then it dawns on you your fold-up tray for your jeans making any picnic an experience. Both of you whip-out your trays for your jeans -> sit down and then the picnic can begin.

But be careful this can be a bit awkward if you haven’t practiced a bit at home because if you want to lean forward to take a sandwich everything on your jeans tray could slide off it making your picnic a disaster and dampening you with your drink. This would be a nightmare for me!!!

There I am with my guy and we are enjoying our picnic and he asks me “could you pour me a bit more red wine into my glass?” -> well because I am intoxicated by the beauty around me and not thinking about my jeans tray; I reach over for the wine and all my food & glass of wine slide off my tray and the red wine cause a BIG spot on my WHITE blanket -> OMG

My day is ruined! And thank goodness I didn’t forget my special picnic spot remover set that goes with the jeans tray especially for these problems, so I could save our picnic because I could see my guy was getting a bit impatient with the whole ordeal.
Those jeans trays are really something and if you practice you can balance 2 plates full of food 2 glasses of whatever you are drinking and 2 beers along with a dessert.

Tip: you have to sit down first to attach the tray to your jeans otherwise forget it, and it is advisable to have someone along to serve the food because it is really tricky too carry all that, sit down and then place it all on your jeans tray.
If you have managed this…. By all means please inform us how you did it. Thank you

But once you have practiced a bit with the jeans tray then it can be a real highlight at you next picnic.

Another tip that I must mention: You cannot ride your bike or drive your car with the jeans on because of the 2 metal holder thingies on each leg. This could be very painful if you are on a bike, so wear another pair of jeans and once you are at your destination then change into your picnic tray jeans.

This is a must for all picnic fans, so remember at your next picnic; don’t forget your picnic tray jeans or else it could be boring picnic. Have fun!
