Ladies: We are Secret Sadistic Devils!

Ladies: We are Secret Sadistic Devils!

The soothing relaxing aroma of perfumed oils and candles, the smooth and tranquil tones from the background music, the clean fresh sheets on a very comfortable bed, lying back buck naked with a towel around the nakedness waiting for the pain to start! Nope, this is not a scene from 50 Shades of Grey – it’s the monthly grooming session at the expensive Spa! Although – the torture involved is probably close if not more sadistic than a scene with Christian Grey! The lovely soft-spoken lady (who views your girly parts with more scrutiny than your Gynaecologist) standing at the bottom of the bed readying the torture material to rid you of any unsightly excess hair! As a modern-day woman, there are many things we do on a regular basis to make ourselves presentable to the outside world. The daily rituals of painting our faces, taming our hair and then the meticulous selection and re-selection of our clothes. The weekly dues of facials, manicure’s and pedicure’s. And then there is the monthly grooming practice that only you and whomever has the privilege of seeing your butt (pun intended) naked self will get to admire!   I asked a number of ladies on why they put themselves through all of this, and whether it was for the benefit of being attractive or desirable to the mate they are trying to attract? Believe it or not, the belief of beautifying ourselves for the reasons of attraction is a...

My woes of giving a perfect gift to my Dad!

My woes of giving a perfect gift to my Dad!

It’s Father’s Day this coming 6th September and I am at a complete loss as to what gift to get my Dad! It’s the same every year! Only with Parents do you end up getting three gifts a year! Birthday, Mother’s/Father’s Day and Christmas!  Mums are easy – anything goes! Flowers, Perfume, Clothes, Food, Spa treatment, etcetera. The list is endless for Mothers! When I was younger, the classic Father’s Day gifts were Socks & Jocks, T-Shirts, Belts, Ties or Boxer Shorts. On the odd occasion whereby his Electric Razor was broken, (and that I’d saved enough from my pocket-money and scrounged the rest from my other sisters to make this a joint gift!) we’d get him something useful! There was no point in even wrapping the gifts as they were so obvious! Now that I am all grown up and working for a living, and my Dad having recently retired, I thought “This is my time to shine! This is when I can be inventive with my gifts!”. Little did I know that this was an even bigger task than I thought! Since retirement, my Dad has had very few hobbies. He likes to walk/go hiking, cooking and watch TV (mostly sport), sometimes read the odd classic book; but that’s about it! I tried to buy him hiking boots – he didn’t like the way they fitted (they’re still in a box under the staircase – because he is STILL a typical man and does not go back to shops to RETURN things! EVER!). I tried to buy him cookbooks – he said he likes to...

Happy Mother’s Day! Everyday!

Happy Mother’s Day! Everyday!

I love my Mom, really I do! But oh – how she can test my patience! OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS! The indescribable rage I have in my head right now is almost too much for me to bear. The only thing I want to do is to storm out of the house, slam the door behind me, walk up an enormous hill, and never come back to my crazy household. Seriously, I bet there are millions of young people out there who are in exactly the same position as me; when you and your Mom are having the worst fight ever, nobody is willing to back down, and all you want to do is to storm out of the front door tears streaming down your face, vowing never to come back home. On most occasions, this tantrum is shared, word for word with my best friend, as we basically experience the same situation at least a few times a month. But her situation is usually about studies, whereas mine… well, mine was actually about cookies… I mean, what’s wrong with just having a little mess in my bedroom? It’s my bedroom! I demand the right to make it look as if a clothes bomb has gone off amid the organised chaos, right? Every now and then I’ve got to add some personality to my space; after all, I am an artist and I am supposed to be rebellious and insane (sometimes!). Which is why, I like to play around with food sometimes to explore my creativity and originality… I know…it’s deep stuff, and “Drama Queen” is not my nickname! Looking...

Weddings, what the customer is looking for.

Weddings, what the customer is looking for.

As you know, when it comes to weddings, people want the day to run and look just the way they have imagined it will be.  That means that they will be very careful when they are selecting every element that will contribute to their vision of the day.  The competition for florists is considerable and it all comes down to convincing the customer that you can provide their vision. The internet these days is host to a huge array of websites filled with ideas on wedding decorations, themes and floral designs.  Many of them encourage people to buy cut flowers wholesale and design their own arrangements.  Still more advise soon-to-be-weds on how to choose a floral designer.  All of these sites emphasise the importance of consulting at least three florists before making a choice.  So how do you make sure that you win over these savvy window shoppers?  They are, in effect, interviewing you and knowing what they are looking for is the first step.  Here is the checklist that a lot of the sites are advising people to look for in a floral designer: • Was the florist willing to spend the time you required during your initial consultation? • Was he/she professional, prompt, and courteous? • Did he/she listen to your ideas? • Did he/she “get it”? And did he/she make suggestions that you liked? • Was he/she knowledgeable, for instance did he/she suggest which flowers would be in season? • Did he/she have a portfolio of...

Why Lady Gaga & Taylor Kinney Make a Great Couple

  Lady Gaga’s Monsters rejoiced last week on news of her engagement to Taylor Kinney. The couple met on the set of the above ‘Yoü And I’ music video in 2010. Interestingly the video ends with the couple in nuptials. They have reportedly been nearly inseparable since. However, when they are apart they’ve tweeted about it how much they are missing each other. In fact its been a very public romance, with pictures all over Instagram of them being incredibly cute together. So why do they work together? First both understand what it is like having a successful show business career and always being in the spotlight. But Lady Gaga puts it best this way “He looks normal, but he is weird on the inside. And, you know I am weird on the outside.” Isn’t that just incredibly sweet!   (Source: germnotta, via...

How to navigate romantic gifts

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. It is a day that is designated for love, romance, and appreciating your significant other. Fresh flowers are the standard gift for Valentine’s Day and roses are an international symbol of love that make a long-lasting impression on women. Daisies, on the other hand, are a sweet way for men to let a woman know that they are interested in dating them. Gerberas are a type of daisy that comes in a variety of bright colours that are sure to invoke a smile and maybe even a very shy “yes” to the romantic question being asked. Once people have been dating for a while he will be able to freely express himself by ordering her favourite flowers online as a surprise for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. For special days for men, such as Father’s Day or birthdays, tailored gift baskets or bouquets, such as a mix of native flowers, Gerberas and Carnations, allow you to show your appreciation of him without being too over the top. Men also enjoy the perfumed scent that fresh flowers add to a room. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, and Father’s Day can also be expressed with hugs, personalised gifts and various acts of appreciation. One of the traditional romantic gifts for her for Valentine’s Day is sexy lingerie. However, when in the early stages of dating men may not know their lady friend physically or...
