What is beauty to you? Is it the soft curves of a woman’s form or the visions of humanity and its gods captured on canvas or in stone? Or is it the natural beauty you find in the world around us? Continue reading

Hugh has challenged us to share our favourite hats. I love this challenge as I do tend to wear a hat as often as I can.
I took a trip to Zimbabwe and found a rather special cap. It travelled with me on all my adventures and saved me from many embarrassing hair days!
What sort of hat do you enjoy wearing?
Why not join in the challenge.
Here are the instructions on how to do it:
1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken of a hat or hats.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 24 – “Hats”
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a *pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view the post.
Now this might look as though it is targeted at the ladies, but trust me, some gentlemen know exactly what I’m talking about!
Have you ever ordered a dress for a party, imagining just how nice you’re going to look…and then it arrives and…well…you try it on. Insert sad face emoticon when you realise that the size six model showing off the dress in the video catalogue probably has perky breasts, has never fed a child from her body (let alone four!) and probably wouldn’t know what child birth entails! Yes, unfortunately that’s me looking in the mirror imagining I’m still twenty-something and capable of pulling off sexy. But, persistence pays off…or does it?
When do you face your body’s limitations on fashion?
I refuse to believe I have to dress like a mature lady and still prance around in floaty dresses with leggings and boots. Probably not the most appropriate style for school but it’s soooo comfortable, I’m not ready to let that style go. Now, to address my tiring attempt to look sexy. What am I going to do? I have a very important party to attend and I want to look good not only for my family but for myself. Is it worth pulling out the secret supports or should I just go in a normal floaty number? I want to look good and I want to wear this beauty, but am I punching above my weight?
What would you do? Again I would like to point out that gents know the feeling with their favourite outfits. Does comfort out-weigh style and looking good?
