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

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

One of Yoga’s most challenging poses
You are looking to achieve the pose similar to this example which as far as head stands go, it’s a good demonstration, but the head needs to be forwards to reduce the neck arch
The yoga asana referred to as headstand is challenging and sometimes dangerous depending on the person’s level of strength and fitness.
To practice this, one must first be competent at holding a handstand for 30 seconds or more because when one is performing a headstand, the weight of the body is taken on the arms to avoid damaging one’s neck which happens far too often.
We are so often very competitive and that competitiveness often

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

Ideas about growing up, conformity and fashion for girls
Growing up in our materialistic world is a challenge and many the many self esteem issues so many suffer from stem back to those moments of comparison with others, in particular the unrealistic magazine and makeup images of what you should look like.
The fashion industry promotes the body beautiful with shorter skirts, lower necklines, bigger busts, thinner legs, perfected eyebrows, and a pencil thin waistline. Girls are being constantly told exactly how to look and how to be hot, to be desired, and sexy mostly by males.
Our world is very elitist and this is mostly to do with basic survival needs, like more money and

Tales from real life
Hi, this is a bit embarrassing but I’ll tell you anyhow. Last week I arranged to get a ride to the mall with my brother who was going to pick me up at 1130 sharp. He’s really bossy but I had plenty of time or so I thought. I slept until nine, did a few chores in the buff and took a shower, then as I had time to spare I put on my favourite yoga tights and started working out.
Yoga is really gentle so I didn’t break a sweat and I was really getting into it when my brother arrived. Like he just pulled into the driveway, honked and called me to hurry

A battle to conform or find health?
I’ve discussed a little about our bodies and ourselves, and our need to get over our hangups or learned value judgements primarily because such ideology is limiting and holds us back from success in all avenues of life.
Being too fat or obese is different from being nicely rounded or carrying a few extra pounds. In contrast with anorexia which deprives the body of functional energy, a few extra pounds as a sign of good health and even food security.
Carrying a few extra pounds is not going to stop anyone from doing all the things in life they enjoy, it’s only a few of these people who suffer a

I may go on a date in a dress like this, but work is much more formal. Tumblr Image
I heard about the organisation ‘free the nipple‘ and thought little about it until I came home from work until one day then realised how relieved I was to take my bra off and made the connection. I stood topless looking at myself in the mirror, mostly at the strap line’s that had cut into my shoulders and went from under my boobs right around my back.
Those cut lines or indentations felt so uncomfortable I massaged as far around as I could reach which softened them a little then I continued massaging my
