A gorgeous vanity

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Wednesday 3 March 2010 9:30 am

 

vanity

 

every Goddess deserves one.

It adds that dainty, feminine touch.

 

I’ve spent a great deal of time searching for the perfect vanity.  Ideally, I’d like to place it adjacent to my bed.  With a location in mind, the task at hand is finding one that I absolutely adore. 

 

I must confess, my mind has been conjuring up images like the one below:

Reality silently crept up and revealed the following beauties:

FAB Skinny Bish: Donyale Luna

Fashion

 

 

Gone but not forgotten.  Donyale Luna is said to be the first Black woman to grace the cover of British Vogue.  Gazing at her photos, I can definitely see why.  She was breathtakingly gorgeous and had the longest most elegant limbs imaginable.

Silk Robes *swoon*

Know what I absolutely adore?

 

Why silk robes, of course!!

 

They feel fabulous against your skin – so much so that I absolutely refuse to go to bed without silk or satin sheets, which is a whole ‘nother post!

 

Every so often I shop for new ones to add to my collection. Here are a few I fancy:

 

 

Not entirely silk, but I felt it deserved an honorable mention.   Meow!

 

 

 

 

 

Hellooooooooooooooo Gorgeous. 

 

Any of these beauts are welcome in my closet anytime ;]

 

Oh, lest I forget.  I missed out on this beauty a few seasons back *sheds a tear*

Design Rules

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Saturday 6 February 2010 1:25 pm

 

I am looking forward to redesigning my personal space.

 

This book has caught my eye and I’ll be purchasing it shortly.  Why?

(Other than the fact that we have identical color schemes??  A woman after my own heart *swoon*)

 

Upon reading the author’s (Elaine Griffin) interview on the web I was smitten not only by her words, but also by her approach to interior design.  I plan on making a few bold moves in the next few weeks and felt this would be the perfect tool to have at my fingertips — why not seek expert advice?

 

I’m thinking of tracking my adventures in mod/classic decor…we’ll see.

 

Here is a  blurb which can be found on Elaine’s website:

 

Design Rules is filled with all the timeless decorating rules, measurements, proportions and visual truths that design professionals use with every project. They’re the style secrets and trade tricks that make rooms look professionally designed and ready to be snapped for the pages of a magazine, and can transform any space into sheer gorgeousness.

 

With stylish, helpful illustrations and chockfull of tips galore, Design Rules is the don’t-decorate-without-it bible for any home, anywhere, no matter what the style or budget. From living rooms to kitchens, baths and basements; from color to flooring to lighting; and all the design elements in between, Design Rules gives you practical, straightforward, useful advice.

 

I’ll be doing a book review momentarily.  I can’t wait to read this!

 

Fruits & Veggies, for the win!

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Monday 18 January 2010 11:57 am

 

Fruits and veggies, for the win, in 2o1o.

 

I just came across a wonderful article – right on time, I may add!

 

Health = paramount in 2o1o and beyond.

 

Boost Your Natural Immunity

Edited to include only the highlights. 

 

New flu strains. Antibiotic-resistant tuberculosis. Germs in and on the foods we buy in supermarkets and in restaurants. Flesh-eating bacteria. Feels like you’re in the midst of a scary twenty-first century germ invasion. And while you try your best to keep from meeting the nastiest bugs, there’s only so much you can do without living in a bubble. That means boosting your immune system matters more than ever.  And steps you take to boost your immunity may also protect you from the chronic diseases associated with aging.

 

Feast on fin food.   Just get the DHA from pills made from algae — that’s where the fish get it.

 

See red or go nuts. Red wine, red grapes, and peanuts are great sources of resveratrol, a compound that protects against immune system aging and inflammation. 

 

Learn the art of ahhhh.  Extreme stress reduces your natural killer cell count 

 

Tuck yourself in.  Stop shortchanging yourself and jump into the sack a half hour earlier tonight . . . 

 

Take a walk today. Regular physical activity can help keep immunity where it should be. 

 

Pop some vitamin D.   Since it’s difficult to get what you need from food alone, get 1,000 international units a day from a supplement if you’re younger than 60, 1,200 if you’re 60 or older. 

 

Munch apples, broccoli, and red onions. All are bursting with quercetin, a flavonoid that shores up immunity, even when you’re fatigued. 

 

Think zinc.   Supports immunity (it may also thwart cancer cells). — 12 milligrams a day – 

 

Don’t forget classic “C.” This vitamin helps you produce more bullets to kill invading germs.

Many thanks to Drs. Oz and Roizen.  RealAge.com will be my second home this year.

‘Twas the night before Christmas

shoppingbags

…and all through the condo…a Skinny Bish moved swiftly, expertly wrapping last minute gifts. 

 

Well….not necessarily wrapping, per se….more along the lines of expertly placing them in gorgeous gift bags.  This was, of course, after it dawned on me that perhaps I should have started wrapping sooner (i.e. earlier this month).   A quick dash to the store and several bags later, I’m all set!

 

This year has really flown by at warp speed.  Honestly, I’ve found myself reflecting all month and it isn’t even Christmas yet.  Surely this should not have kicked in until a of couple days before New Years…you know…resolutions and all.  Speaking of which…

 

….wait for it… :)

 

The Skinny Bish’s Resolutions:

 

  •  *Be thankful, each and every day
  • *Take 1.5 hrs to reflect before heading out to my full time gig
  • *Start working out for 1/2 hr each day, not because I have to, because I should!
  • *Put my juicer to use again in 2010
  • *Greet the sun!  Run on the beach every morning
  • *Get back on my skincare routine…no lapses
  • *Beat my face daily (the youthful look may be holding me back)
  • *Party more!  Quit declining the invites
  • *Shop less, way way less
  • *Get a bigger closet or purge clothing more often
  • *Send out thank you cards more frequently!
  • *Amp up the volume and graduate by Dec!
  • *Drop what isn’t working when necessary

 

I’m sure there’s more but nothing else comes to mind right now.

 

Happy Holidays everyone!! :]

Cutting hair with the moon.

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Saturday 19 December 2009 9:18 am

moon

 

 

Do you cut your hair by the light of the moon?

 

Have you heard of lunar calendar haircuts? Yep, cuts and trims can be done by using the lunar calendar.

 

 Nooo….it isn’t simply an old wives tale that has lingered for decades; it does have strong merit.

 

Many women (and men) who experience thinning, limp, slow growing hair have experienced significant benefits from this method. There are even a few who choose to use this method to retard (slow the growth) their hair growth because their hair grows entirely too fast!

 

How it works:

 

The premise: if you wish to have faster growth, cut your hair when the Moon is increasing in light – so that is essentially between the New Moon and the Full Moon. Many people prefer to cut when the moon is full and tend not to deviate from their scheduled cuts. The result of either method is stronger hair that grows at a faster pace.

 

For those with hair that grows ridiculously fast (and gets super annoyed that their layers have grown out once again!) it may be worth it to try this method to delay those trips to Pierre over at your swanky salon of choice ;)yes, I’m aware that he works magic with those shears and clippers.

 

Method: To retard, let’s find another word, shall we…
To stunt hair growth, it is recommended that you cut your hair when the moon is waning. This refers to the period after the full moon and before the new moon (specifically, a couple of days before the new moon). I’ve found that this is also a spectacular time to shave your legs and perform other hair removal tasks you fancy.

 

Though I’ve never bought any of his products, I do find his lunar calendar to be exceptional!  It gives you specific cutting dates based on the results you’d like to achieve. Want to lengthen, thicken, strengthen, or do you simply wish to beautify?

 

The dates are all there, at the Morrocco method. I adore his calendar, so much so that I’m willing to risk it being misaligned (eh, it throws off the aesthetics, so what!) on the blog so that it is rendered readable. Take a peek:
