Flavours in times of of change

Fashion changes by the season and to a large extent is driven by the marketing division of the fashion industry, but it’s really an age-old phenomenon that’s probably existed since before we wore clothes and is inspired by people’s sense of ascetics and comfort.

In some ancient cultures, fashion is irrelevant as people wear traditional costumes although even within them, there is room for subtlety to express better quality, greater comfort and social status. To a large extent the idea of fashion has driven the clothing industry since it began and yet today it has become something of a monster as the fashion change from year to year and a great many garments may

Hair is Beautiful

Increasing numbers of women quit shaving

We all love the hair that grows on our heads and we spend a fortune over a lifetime looking after it. Some people even spend small fortunes trying to retain hair when nature decides otherwise, but then there are varying aspects to body hair.

We have some insight from our history books that the Egyptians and Romans extended personal grooming from basic cleanliness to various hairstyles to the trimming of beards and other ascetics like plucking eyebrows and removing undesired here from other parts of the body.

There is a wide variance between peoples in terms of how much body hair individuals may have. The actual amount is determined by body chemistry, inheritance and

Why Hate?

A failure to become human

Someone sent me a quote, that is what sender was taught; that I enclose [I became so religious so that I could pray for you to burn in hell] and write him my reply : Hate is a weak emotion that shows that hater is a failure and will not succeed as a good human. Hating others even if your religion teaches you is a negative emotion that can erode your soul. Do you know there are large number of people who without knowing, are hating via their “praying that certain people” get hurt” daily.

They say that don’t hate what you don’t really understand and yet people hate others for their natural way

Living with Boobs

Advice from a big breasted girl

Probably the first thing about big boobs is that everyone notices and a whole lot of people stare. As a 10-year-old they were a curiosity and then a nuisance because they got in the way of sport and of course I had to start wearing bras which are an uncomfortable feature of life that have yet to be totally comfortable with.

I probably inherited my boobs because mums are pretty big although I never seemed to notice in part because she kind of hides herself away. But she went to considerable length to make sure I got good bras even though I hated them. So I guess I was

Exploitation of Women

An age old practice

For the past 6000 years women have been second-class citizens although since the Industrial Revolution, it seems as if they have been allowed a degree of freedom. Allowed away from the kitchen and child-minding provided they look pretty and don’t have an opinion.

When times get tough women most often find themselves confined to the kitchen except on rare occasions as when back in the 1700’s, women stormed the palace of Versailles and demanded social equity. They didn’t get it then and it wasn’t long before French women became the most oppressed in Europe.

In today’s Middle Eastern war, it is the Kurdish and Yazidi women who have taken up weapons against daesh as have other

We are so often very competitive and that competitiveness often

Beauty Therapy

Are we being real or just kidding ourselves?

There is an old saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this is true. Any number of people can look at something but not all will agree that it’s beautiful because everything we see is in fact an interpretation of our own mind. The idea of beauty is also associated with ideas of glamour, however glamour is a completely different subject although it can complement or even replace beauty.

The ideas of beauty are mostly associated with sight, sound and touch. When we see someone or something, the light reflected from the object passes through the lens of our eyes to land on the retina from where an
