Several months ago I watched a movie that was called Red Lipstick.
No it wasn’t an adult movie. In fact it was a rather touching story.
The story-line followed a lady’s brave journey and her fight against cancer. This lady was so positive and made sure she wore her red lipstick everyday, it was her trademark.
So this got me thinking and prompted me to do something I have never done before and that was getting my nails done.
Getting my nails done was defo a confidence booster and gave me the polished finish.
I felt more like lady and a professional one at that. So like the lady with Red Lipstick, I am the girl who paints her nails in 50 Shades of Pink. And yes it makes me feel like Superwoman – eager to take on the World’s Villians.
I feel it in my fingers , I feel it in my toes…..its the month of Love and all i see are hearts, red, pinks, teddy bears….
Every year this day love dawns upon us with the onslaught of the same romantic songs and movies. For all us singletons its a day we tend to dismiss in our calendars.I personally have never had a bf for love day and only seem to meet them later on in the year.
In London a group of my friends decided to celebrate this Love day in style and in keeping with the spirit of this day. We came up with the idea of a Secret Valentine where we each would pick a name from the hat and buy that person a Valentines gift.Our group was made up of guys and girls which was a great mix of all sorts.
Us singletons met for pre dinner cocktails and gift exchanging which was a barrel of laughs . Some of the gifts were very creative, naughty , cheesy and nice.We all were dressed up in our red and black finery that evening and went to our pre booked romantic Valentines dinner with friends . The evening was a great way to spend this day that is much dreaded by many with friends who make you laugh and care for you.
Yes I am a singleton very much like Bridget Jones and yes I am still a soppy romantic waiting for Mr Darcy….. who knows what this Love Day will bring
This morning after a mission with bad internet signal , I made my self a cup of tea and thought how did we survive before without all this technology .
I recall my last flight home to SA , handbag contents included a mobile phone , digital camera, camcorder , DsLite consol, external hard drive and a few USB sticks and a cute pink netbook among my other girlie must haves. Strange to think that one could have so much technology in a handbag .
Seems hard to believe it but yes we did survive ,wrote letters , called people and visited more often. Life as we know it has been taken over by the rat race and our best method of contact now seems email , BBM, Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter.I recall my first few months back from London and how I felt so cut off from the world especially my friends overseas. It was like like living in the Stone Age until I got internet access and a mobile phone.
I then realised how we in South Africa were recieving so little for the extremely high prices we paid for net access and mobile contracts. Having been an Apple mobile user in the UK I have had to downgrade to a Blackberry purely out of the finances of the mobile plans availlable.We need to make technology available to all in SA to ensure a techno savy society.Ciao for now my lovelies ………
