I know. It’s been AGES since I last posted anything…but there is a good reason….my entire life, or rather most of it has turned upside down. Let me tell you why:
1. By the end of this month my position at work will no longer exist. Yes, that’s right. I am being made redundant. Oh you ask if I have any job lined up? NOPE! I have no idea what’s going to happen from January 2016.

2. My boyfriend met with a tragic road accident which literally shook my world. It was 2 weeks of HELL and a few more days after, but the bright side? HE IS ALIVE & WELL! 🙂 What more could I ask for?

3. Well I can’t exactly say this here, but it was another eye-opening incident for me and it’s also changed a lot in my life.

So now, after all this, and a few things here and there, I am seriously considering writing a book. And why not? Why not share these stories with the world and who knows maybe someone somewhere will be positively affected by my words right?

Any thoughts? Tips?

By the way, life really is short and anything can happen within seconds. So never ever take anything or anyone for granted because you don’t know when you will see them next or what condition they will be in. Ask me…I’m talking from experience!!!!!!!



The Newbie Make-up Bee

Okay, so I’m no makeup guru and I don’t put on a ‘perfect face’ everyday, but I look presentable in the office and when I’m out. But I would definitely like to know more about makeup, beauty products, how they work etc. But the difficult thing is that I wouldn’t know where to start. Do you learn by taking a short course, watching videos on YouTube or learning from a makeup artist that you know OR from someone who cakes on makeup everyday? Not everyone has access to all or most of these options. What happens then?

As for caking on makeup, for me, that is a complete NO-NO! I wouldn’t take advice from someone who does that nor would I do so myself!
It’s makeup, and its supposed to enhance your beauty. Not cover it up!

In my opinion, I would start with shopping around. And no I don’t mean buying anything and everything and then not knowing what to do with it or how to use it. But window shop. See what’s out there, talk to the people selling the makeup, see if they can advise you. Oh, and I would also take a friend who has some knowledge in this field.
Then, obviously, read up on various makeup techniques or watch videos – easy ones to start off with if you have absolutely no idea what to do. After, that gradually progress towards the more difficult methods, and with practice become better and better! (Practice does make perfect!)

I hope this does help. And if you have any thoughts/ideas, please do comment & share!

How to match your socks to your suit?

Match Your Socks with Your Trousers, Not Your Shoes

When wearing suit trousers or casual ones, aside from jeans, the colour of your socks be chosen based on the colour of your trousers and not by the shade or colour of your shoes. Dark jeans or trousers will clearly go with dark socks, and brown trousers with brown socks. The same goes for blue and grey jeans or trousers. Pick your socks carefully for trousers in different tones. Experiment with a few pairs of socks that you own so as to figure out which socks match your jeans or trousers best. If you’re in doubt, a darker colour generally works better.

The reason it’s so important to match socks with your trousers is so that you are prepared in case you need to take your shoes off or take a seat and have your socks be exposed. The essential rule…

A good quality white blouse

A well-tailored and good quality blouse is must have for every mature woman. It’s very easy to match clothes with a white blouse.
