Hairstyle is a Lifestyle

Just started working. Sitting and waiting, ready to deal. I feel good..I felt good. Suddenly I hear: 'What have you done to yourself!?!'.
I'm puzzled. 'hmmmmm... n-nothing.(?)' Regular customer in front of me. His pressed lips and shaking head expose disapproval of the landscape before him. 'Yesterday you looked so beautiful!!! what did you do!?!' And he's leaving truly concerned still shaking his head. What did I do? or what didn't I do. I did not make my hair. Just put it flat together with some slight wave which was suppose to give some vintage 'something'. As I really like louis vuitton hairstyle in this particular show, this gentleman decided... it's a shit.

So what does the most create this vintage something?
Seamed stockings, high waist, dress length, hats, gloves, petticoats, eyeliner, red lips... well, no.

Dita von Teese is using hot rollers - only small ones - that for me are a waist of time. It's heavy, uncomfortable, takes a lot of time and doesn't keep the curls. I have thin and flexible hair. Many women get up, brush their hair, throw it backwards and they look astonishing.
I haven't been born with those extra features so I do pin curls.

It takes practise but in the end it takes me 10-15min with eyes shut, going to sleep and brushing in the morning, kilo of hairspray and done.

In my second- day- hair (I wash it every second day) I put some conditioner before brushing out the hairspray that tends to break my hair and still make pin curls but much bigger and rather carelessly since I discovered it tends to style much easier and effect is more smooth.

Hairspray is essential. Things I like are :

CHI Royal Treatment Hairspray, unavailable easily in Europe...
Fudge membrane gas Amazing !!! available everywhere online in UK and in hair salons. 
Both with a nice scent and great hold.
But I do load tones of conditioner before brushing hair after the long day to prevent breaking it. 
Haircut is a great help! This what I took to my hairdresser who has no knowledge of pin curls:

So pin curls based hairstyle is a Lifestyle.

When you finally get experienced, get to know what you have - most women can't do their own hair - you find out how easy and quick and glamorous it is.

There are no ugly women, only lazy ones.

Practise pin curls patterns and angles. Get straight bobby pins; straight, no ridges !!!
I did upload vintage instructions:
So cheap, so handy.
I do it always... better or worse, more or less precise and it always works for me.
But can you look good in it? Judge yourself. When my Love said 'You would look good in short hair' looking at completed hair set, I thought he went mad.

Good Luck !

Tibi has his birthday

It's Tibis birthday. 

No, not today, on 25th, but nothing can possibly collide (f.ex. Mr G's visit)    with this date which is just as National Holiday, so just in case I celebrate it earlier and so this is my Gift...
I fallow his instructions - he forced me not to buy him any presents since Life with me is the biggest thing he could ever had (yes Ladies! My Man is really romantic). So as always obedient I decided to give him this..
I guess I've never told him how much he makes me happy and how important he is in my life.
I've never met anybody who could be so perfect in space sharing as he is. That's definitively the basic secret of our relationship. I appreciate so much his sense of order and organization. 
And all those little things he does...
  • Sometimes I wonder perhaps he thinks I'm disabled since no man ever took care of me the way he does. In spite of my wide knowledge about cartography that I had during my studies he will still draw a clear route (if I want to go shopping) on my map and huge cross to point our flat so even if I try, I can't get lost. 
  • He knows how much I hate to get up in the morning...and at any other time so he will always call me (if can't do it personally) from wherever he is and make sure I'm up at required time.
  • It's enough to mention what I like to eat, to find kilos of it the next day. And he will always make sure it's there in huge amount... always and forever.
  • When I have so-so-day, suddenly I find my favourite wine chilled in the fridge.
  • He is not drinking, has no knowledge about alcohol but after all this time he practised and can  find so tasty wines that I started to wonder...does he get help from out of space.
  • When I'm sick he will make sure I have all medicines I need.
  • I never carry or lift anything if he's around. With my growing heart I'm looking at him, bended under tons of shopping bags and backpack, and I want to take something just to help him since I have only a clutch bag, and he's screaming at me to leave him alone because all this heavy weight 'helps him to keep the balance'.
  • Sometimes he's shouting that he will throw out my two guys (cats) after one of them pees or vomits here and there, but secretly I know that he loves them a lot.
  • He pays attention to what I like and dislike.
  • He brings me flowers !!!
  • He's not smoking because of me.

He is a good person. You don't find many people like this nowadays. Sometimes I do feel like a bad one next to him; ignoring red lights, putting back everything not on it's place, plotting, being 'a bit' vicious; but must admit I get over it quite fast so we can stay in a happy balanced relationship. (and don't you ever try to use this against me!)
He learnt to tolerate me looking quite strange sometimes. And he still likes me best from the 'kitchen side' of my look. He will always be honest and tell me that 'I'm wide in this as a bike road', 'I look in this like a man' (it made me very angry once) and in that as 'russian babushka' or 'cleaning lady'. 
He's my Love, my Today and Tomorrow.
That's why I love to spoil him. He's always happy as a small boy. 
Because I want only this what's the best for him (I hope it's good) I made a cake with his favourite cookies that he's obsessed with recently.
For you My Love, I did it all by myself, only for you. 
It does tastes better than it looks for sure!

Thanks Agata ;)
I couldn't help it! I treated delicje with your Zubrowka...

While you're chewing, afterwards or in between your poker tournaments, look what I found for you.
Book that was an inspiration to occult group Vril, that inspired Nazi, that inspired Hitler, purpose of WWII. 
Leedskalnin writings (1945)
The man who created Coral Castle, who supposedly knew how pyramids were built.
...and maybe...
...just maybe I'll take you to the cinema.

Happy Birthday!

Dita's secrets in British Metro

I guess it's not the most suitable for broken blood vessels on the face like mine. This fun cost around 200 GBP.

Diorsnow is definitively something to look into. It's just a feeling that La Mer is rather overrated. Refissa cream you can get only if you have prescription. But on you can read about Veralyze eye cream which is easier to US. But what about Europe? I guess there's only one place to buy it

Detox Solution
1 1/2 cups water
1 head organic romaine lettuce, chopped
3-4 stalks organic celery
1/2 head of a large bunch or 3/4 of a small bunch of spinach
1 organic apple, cored and chopped
1 organic pear, cored and chopped
1 organic banana
Juice of 1/2 fresh organic lemon

1/3 bunch organic cilantro (stems okay)
1/3 bunch organic parsley (stems okay)
