Style Personality.

It is a known fact that our style just like our personalities evolves as we grow. At every stage in our lives we tend to dress in accordance with the changes and how we feel about ourselves. After all, ‘style is a reflection of who we are’ and ‘what we think about ourselves’. Suddenly, you find what worked for you a couple of years ago is no longer age appropriate and neither flatters nor makes you feel good about yourself.
I doubt mine has changed at all because more often than not, I find myself being asked whether I own a couple of dresses and skirts.A not so inappropriate question for my style leans towards the masculine with a feminine touch since my teen years. I am more of a jeans and tee kind of girl than dresses and frills. The jeans, tee-shirts and skinny pants in my possession probably rival that of a guy and my slave to accessories persona provides the feminine touch.
Yes, I do own a couple of dresses and skirts whereby most of them are courtesy of my sister although the total number of these items does not come anywhere near the pants. She is more feminine to my masculine and why not? She has the curves which I don’t so dresses and skirts flatter her more than they do me who is (aside from my noticeable assets) built like a boy. Fun fact: what passes for a dressy top or shirt on her usually looks like a dress on me albeit as minis sometimes.
Since I own only a few, I wear them sparingly and do so when the mood to remind people of my femininity strikes. I love the feeling of femininity and freedom a dress gives you. On those days, I look like the proverbial girl with a flower in her hair. And a dress influences your actions and the way you carry yourself which is not bad.
Much as my style remains masculine with a feminine touch, I would like to think it has changed. I prefer tighter at the bottom and looser on top. I love the trapeze and long vests, the loose blouses and blazers. I only wear the low rise converse on cold days and my girly shoe game is no jokes! As for dresses and skirts, I prefer round, A- line skirts and skater dresses to form fitting and bandage because those do not flatter my shape at all!

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
