My Dear Friend Army Wife ♥

This set is special to me. For making a set for someone is never easy! Is just as complicated as buying cloths for someone is always a disaster. Never the less "My Dear Army Wife friend in Polyvore is a fun person. But best of all she sounds like a delightful woman that puts love in all she does!! A friend of mine once told me her secret to buying cloths for someone else is A) when you don't know exactly what they like or want, buy accessories! With accessories you can have fun and buy things that would never wear but probably can use for decoration or maybe just maybe add a special touch to an outfit one day!!B) Pay attention and hear what she needs more than giving her the perfect dress give her the white stockings to go with it, know what a mean!! Well this is what I did with NiKki ★JNP587★ I made her a set that made me think about her!! The army, the blues, the sexy boot and jeans to be confi in. I really hope she likes it!!! Aurevoir a tous

My Indian Version of hw to wear a tutu

There is a lot of commotion on Polyvore at the moment, about tutus. I personally could never get my self to wear one. I think they look fabulous and all. Never the less only a some of a few can really get away with them. The rest of us would probably end up looking clownish!! (There I said it) In sets they look great, with all of the curls and colors but on a real body!!!! mmmm I really much doubt the results!! Is spite of it all, All power to you tutu wearable ladies have fun!!

mmmmm guess what I'm thinking!!!! =D

All the fun I had this week at Polyvore is depicted in this set! I am wordless now and I wanted to just give you a taste of what I have in mind. (LMFHO) I am finally getting ready to commit to something that I want to give my time and effort and I will begin soon. I hope to get good insights and support from all of you!! Please comment

Let out your animal instincts!!!!

I know is hard to confront the day sometimes when thing get difficult. I have found that what I wear helps me with the attitude of the day. I no longer take getting dress lightly. Choose animal prints to bring the tiger out, when thing are getting to overwhelming. It works for me and I'm sure it will work for you. Balance it out with your favorite tones. Animal prints pretty much match with any color!!! Don't over do it and go get them!!!!

Don't be Afraid of Summer Rommance

Here, there and everywhere! I love it!!! Summer colors make me ecstatic! You must take them in and fill your self with them to the core of your soul. My husband is busy at Playa Chiquita Lodge getting ready for the week end. My husband will open "the restaurant" this week end with all his divine food. I will stick to my diet but I would lie if I tell you that I will not sip some wine and enjoy the beach, as well to its fullest. Here is my polyvore to depict my state of mind. Have a wonderful romantic week end. Enjoy life and remember “we are the architects of our life’s” Don't be afraid - Be an artist and enjoy it to its fullest Lv

Scritching is Not what you do to your enemies!!!!

Free as a bird
Free as a bird - by gallopinto on

To Scritch is to stimulate the scalp by using a comb hence stimulating scalp and hairs.

I will try it, I bet it feels amazing. My general rule in using a comb on my bare scalp to either “scritch/scratch” will not allow me to fully enjoy this treatment as pre cribbed in Mane & Chick however she give an alternate solution which I find fully satisfying “ The use of a satin bonnet or some sort of barrier”

An than follow the next steps:

  • Prep hair with a hair oil (something with rosemary/peppermint essential oils)
  • Gather hair into ponytail at nape of neck
  • Put on satin skull cap, plastic cap (on wet hair or if baggy-ing), or satin bonnet
  • Take a ball-ended paddle brush, my fingers or Jilbere shower comb and scritch like there's no tomorrow: move brush in a zig zag pattern vigourously covering entire head
  • Do this for as long as you can stand. (I do 5-10 minutes DAILY! I try to.)

And as she explains with details its benefits

Scritching has many benefits:

  • Cleanses scalp by exfoliating dandruff, debris and dead cells
  • Remedies hair loss
  • Encourages hair growth

I will start scratching today!!!

Going to the opera on a tuesday afternoon

I am not sure what it is about the opera. It takes you to a dream state of mind. I love the smell of all Theaters, the dim lighting and people excitement. Than the start of the show, whatever it might be. There is the nervousness of the hosts and the expectations of the observer. Than, depending on the connections and the qualities of talents there are those magical moments that make you feel as if you just went somewhere out and beyond.

I love to enjoy a glass of wine afterwards or between, just to stand and breath the moment. Enjoy it to its fullest. A cup of wine never tastes the same anywhere else. When I walk out of the theater I feel taller, straighter, I feel special for I was in a special place. This are the moments when I grin ear to ear. Time stands still and dreams, hopes and wishes are intertwine and made reality...I hope you take a moment to enjoy the Theater, It really is special!!! Make sure you wear your best garments in your wardrobe and don't hold back. Go all out you really are worth it!!

Don't say it with words.......Say it with colors

I have no words to share today. I lost a diamond, my car is at the mechanic and planets are in “retrograde”. It seams that Scorpion is showing up around 3pm and to top it all is Friday the 13th a lucky day for some and contrary for other...I rather stay neutral and just in case, brighten up a bit to fill my self with positive energy. Have A fabulous week end...

Technorati Profile

Listen to the rain...

I needed to understand a little more about the water (rain) we've beet getting since november!

I figure maybe its meaning will help me focuse on a different prespective rather than normal feelings of total deslike, deprivation, wetness, etc. I found various meanings andI hope they will help us all accept it, by keeping this things in mind.

Have a great "wet" day - Don't forget your blaks and focuse on your feminine powers and look to the North...oooh yeap..bring un umbrela!

Rain is liquid precipitation! Rain is the primary source of fresh water for most areas of the world, providing suitable conditions for diverse ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation.

When we think of water we associate it with feelings of wetness and coldness. As an element, water is considered yang, or female. Feng Shui associates this element with emotion as well as the wisdom of our souls. We see water every day whether in a glass we’re drinking from, or in oceans, rivers, and even the falling rain.

The color of Water’s is black and its direction north. This is a good time to remind you that Feng Shui literally means “wind” and “water,” so you can see that water is a meaningful element in our lives. Wind is said to disperse chi and water holds it. We are all mostly made up of water, as is the planet we live on.

Water is where life is thought to have originated and it’s important for reproduction, without it it’s difficult for fertilization to take place.

Water is the most plentiful element on the surface of our planet. Our bodies contain more water than anything else. Therefore, it’s obviously extremely important. To work best, water needs to move or flow. Stagnant water breeds rotting things and doesn’t fare well in any environment.

Water in feng shui is usually used in a fountain or aquarium. Even very small decorative fountains for indoors can be very helpful. However, when using water in your environment, keep it fresh and clean.

Five elements (metal, wood, water, fire, earth):

Nappy is “In” - hiding is out

My daughter came home yesterday from school and told me a “ Sad Bad Hair Story” – A black girl, friend of hers, wears her hair natural. Their friends asked her to come to school that day with her natural hair out, for she always wears it in braids, I guess!! To everyone’s surprise and my daughters absolute rage, their teacher, also a black woman but with totally relaxed hair and wearing a fake piece of flowing fake curls sliding down to her back, told the girl to do something about her messy nappy hair. She said to relax it and tie it back. Why? Everyone asked. Because we black woman can’t go around looking all messy and crazy looking. Now, this is a Catholic school, all girls must wear their hair proper and neat, meaning nothing fancy. For any white girl this means a simple pony, pig or bunny tails or just loose, but away from the face. Now a black girl with natural nappy hair this means usually relax it to look like the white girl hair and tie it back!!! I don’t think so!

The right thing to do is just as she had done it - tie a wide band in the front to keep it away from her eyes to show her pretty face and than let it’s natural kinkiness stay quiet in back. Nothing messy! Why oh why are black woman so stubbornly and sadly offended by their own natural hair, preferring plastic long hair or relaxed hair, full of chemicals over their vast, kinky natural head of hair. My hat off to this new generation of young “tico” ( Costa Rican) black girls that can stand up and say no more hiding behind what I’m not and embracing the natural Me! – See the new black woman of this century is passing all of that! She stand up and runs for first lady of USA, she stand up and runs for president of Costa Rica, she stands up and sing, model and study with her natural beauty showing freely as saying - I don’t need to pretend to be in order to fit in. I no longer need to hide and be quiet in order to receive acceptance. I am who I am and when you look at me you’ll see generations and generations of black women that needed to hide so I could shine!

My Perfect Summer

Summer Fresh
Summer Fresh - by gallopinto on

My list of twelve essentials for the summer

1. The Boyfriend Jeans… is the new trend

2. The white button up shirt… is a must

3. The designer bag… you can’t be without

4. The little black…is for always your best friend

5. The good pair of sunglasses… give you the attitude

6. The ballerinas slippers gray, black beige help…a lot

7. The beach thongs & leather fancy rhinestones ones… are necessary

8. The black button up sweater …can help any cool night

9. The kaki shorts…help you keep it cool

10. The pumps… sexier the better

11. The white tang top… as many as possible

12. A summer cotton dress… is the cherry on top

They say grey is the new black which means accessories should follow the trend as well. If boyfriend’s old jeans are the new trend than lets consider big, bright & the spectrum of blues for our summer bag one that fits your body size, of course! Sunglasses you can either go for a black oversize or of course gray if you dare. Add fun, color and adventure with the flip flops. The pumps must be flexible to your accessories and considered to your bag. To give the infamous little black a rest for change lets try a daring little Gray for our summer dress. Taking all of this in consideration….have fun shopping for your summer essentials!
