These three easy moves will enhance your feminine form by toning muscles in key areas using your own body weight.

I call it gentle sculpting 🙂

  1. Push-Upslifts your chest and tones your upper arms
  2. Cross Crunches or Pilates Criss Cross – whittles your waist and flattens your belly
  3. Toe Raises – lifts your bum and tones your entire leg

Start small. Using proper form, attempt 1, then 3, then 5, and so on.

The point is to start and to stick with it.

Good luck!

(This routine is not for weight loss nor will results be evident under excess body fat.)

It’s getting colder. Bundle up!

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Be discerning.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. That may be the case, but the truth is that it takes a lot of solid, stable marriages to create a village. Diane Sollee

Develop a complementary union.

You need only do three things in this country to avoid poverty – finish high school, marry before having a child, and marry after the age of 20. Only 8 percent of the families who do this are poor; 79 percent of those who fail to do this are poor. – William Galston, Clinton White House

Choose your role wisely.

Love and appreciate your body

You must be comfortable in your own skin. If your self-image is lacking, any attempt at sensuality will appear false.

Be in your body, not your head

Focus on what you are doing and feeling. Experience the moment totally. Forget the past and the future and live fully in the right now.

Try to recall taking a really good stretch after sleeping. The stretch may only last a couple of seconds but while it’s happening, you’re generally not thinking of anything else. You’re just enjoying stretching your muscles out as far as they’ll go and how great it feels to do that. This is what it means to be present – to experience the present moment fully.

Stimulate your senses everyday

Be and see pretty. Adorn yourself and your surroundings. Start small. Try a new lipstick shade and add gloss. Change the boring picture on your computer desktop to a gorgeous landscape or vibrant flowers.

Speak beauty and listen to that which enriches your spirit. Express gratitude daily even if only talking to self. Communicate clearly and pleasantly. Let others be happy to see you coming. And, listen to music and programs that get you going.

Drink in pleasing aromas. Place a small scented candle on your desk at work. You won’t even have to light it to enjoy its fragrance. Keep a scented lotion in your handbag and breathe in its fragrance as you rub it into your skin.

Enjoy good food. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Savor the flavors of a nourishing and satisfying dish. Learn to prepare it and gift someone else with the experience.

Be soft and touchable. Pamper your body.  Exfoliate and moisture your skin. Add feminine, flirty accessories to your wardrobe. Experiment with different fabrics and textures and enjoy discovering how they feel on your skin.

Life is meant to be enjoyed. Get on with it!


One of the reasons that I love fall is that I get to wear tights. They’re warm. They can inject a splash of color. And they add that finishing touch to an outfit.

I think that I’ll wear a pair today!

for care:
Put your hose on slowly – one leg at a time, beginning at the toe and working up. Take them off exactly the same way. Either neatly roll them up or fold them flat and store each pair separately. Sandwich bags are a cheap and easy solution.

Use mild detergent and cold water to wash your hosiery. Hand wash or use a lingerie bag and wash on gentle cycle in the washing machine. Rather than wringing, gently press out as much water as possible and hang them up to dry. Never iron, bleach, or put hose in the dryer.

quick tips:
Cotton or textured underwear can help keep hose from sliding.

Control top pantyhose are both stronger and more durable than regular hosiery.

Moisturize skin and groom nails to prevent snags. Or invest in a pair of simple cotton gloves used specifically for putting on and taking off hosiery.

To prevent runs, lightly mist your hose with hair spray (after you’ve put them on) to stiffen the fibers.

When all else fails, clear nail polish stops runs.

for style:
Hosiery that matches your skirt elongates your figure.
Sheer hose adds a touch of elegance.
Pair patterned tights with a solid color dress or suit and a closed toe pump for jazzy sophistication.
And finally, never pair dark hose with light-colored shoes.

Understand the words that you use to describe yourself.

Heterosexual men are attracted to women who embody womanhood and femininity. If they wanted someone exactly like them, they would be homosexual.

It’s not so much that you must be soft, caring, and affectionate 100% of the time.

Just don’t lead with strong, effective, and independent unless you’re looking for male colleagues.

In no particular order

Enjoy your weekend!

A man prefers class to @ss. The opposite is true for an adult male.

A man seeks a mate. An adult male seeks to mate.

All males are visual.

Females attract their attention.

Understand your intentions when you choose to wear what you wear.

Gray Dresses

on Dressing and Self Respect

To begrudge another woman’s status, education, possessions, appearance, etc.

highlights not only the fact that you don’t have it

but also that you want what she has yet

  • are either unable or unwilling to do what it takes to get it and
  • are negatively affected by the fact that she has it.

This, by far, is the most effective way to broadcast your personal insecurities and shortcomings.

Just know that this knowledge can and will probably be used against you.

Hint: If you don’t have anything nice to say, best not to say anything at all.
