A Train Ride and Michelle Obama

The last two weeks have been hectic, fun, entertaining filled with laughter, good conversation and more. This post won’t be long since the pictures will speak for themselves.

We started out with a train ride to the Grapevine Mainstreet Arts Fest aboard the Trinity Metro from the T&P station in Fort Worth. We were able to meet new friends and have a great time walking Main Street, talking with the vendors, eating the food samples and more. Hopefully on our next excursion you will be able to join us.

The discussion of the Michelle Obama book “Becoming” that we held at Leaves Book and Tea Shop, lived up to everyone’s expectations. The participants sipped their ice tea while they discussed “Becoming” and life itself. There were no right or wrong answers which made it interesting. Once again we were able to connect with women that we didn’t know.

The participants were given a sway bag that contained items from Sephora (located on University). After receiving their bags, they were then presented with other items to add to their sway bags. Women entrepreneurs were then given a moment to tell about their businesses and products. They then had a surprise for each lady. Each participant received a beautiful gift box with a lovely bracelet in it from Melba Gordon Jones of Paparazzi Accessories. Ruby Powell of Ageless Perfection Skincare gave each of the ladies’ skincare products that were packaged in a lovely satchel. Beverly Gunter of Kay’s Hot Water Cornbread Mix bought samples to taste (they went fast), and then gave each lady a package of mix. Each of the entrepreneurs received a gift from Danette Wicker of Danette’s Urban Oasis. The ladies were then given tissue paper and ribbon to complete their sway bag.

Hope you can join us for our next event. Step out of your comfort zone because “thisisyourbestyear”.

The Girls are now Women

When the girls become women most of them should be seen a little less out in public.  They should not be let out as much as when they were younger.

You know now they move and won’t be still.  You tell them to stay put, but they won’t. You try to corral them in by tightening the strap, but somehow it still might not work.  Depending upon the size of your girls, then you may need to get a little more assistance.

When the girls were coming of age, most of the women of a certain age didn’t really think about them.  Our mother’s did though; they always wanted them to be out of sight, out of mind.

As the girls grew we discovered that they could become good friends.  They could get attention from people we didn’t even know.  They were usually perky, and they loved, little lacy outfits.  Our mother’s depending upon our age liked them in white, but we discovered  black and then all of the colors of the rainbow.

We discovered they liked to sit up high, so we purchased things that would allow them to enjoy themselves.  We also discovered that most of the time they liked to be seen.  We even saw that on television, in the movies, and in magazines the girls were every where.  But ladies, the girls have grown up and now they are women, and the women can’t do what the girls do.

Come on ladies,I’m talking about cleavage.  Yes, I know that everything that is made now shows cleavage.  Well that means you should probably pack safety pins in your purse.  As we mature things start to happen.  In fact, some of us were never perky (get real) and be honest with yourself.  Most of us do not have the confidence of Whoopi Goldberg, so we need to remember that we are no longer “girls” and neither is our cleavage.

Some of us have been surgically enhanced, but these women still need to be dressed a little differently.  A little cleavage is not a bad thing on most people, but the more you mature, the more they need to mature.

I’m not talking about looking sexy; there are many ways to look sexy without bringing the girls out to play.  Take a little time, find a look for the occasion.  Got good arms, show them off.  Got good legs, let them be seen.  Got a toned back and backside–enough said.  They will love to see you walk away.

Take a look at some of the best known women in the United States who know that the girls are now women and dress accordingly.  These ladies know and so should you “thisisyourbestyear”.  Ladies share with us ways you enhance/show off the women.  We all have things that work for us so let’s share. See you next week.
