One of my all time favorite fairy tales is Cinderella. I could watch that movie over and over again and never get tired of it. My niece told me that last year in her English class that they were given numerous variations of the classic tale of Cinderella to read and she was amazed (and I as well) at how this nouveau riche (newly rich) story has changed through out the years and is told in so many different languages these days.
Cinderella is considered a nouveau riche story due to that fact that Cinderella came from such rags and came into riches when her prince finally came and rescued her from her evil step mother and crazy step sisters. From rags to riches, such a classic. My niece had never heard the phrase “nouveau riche”, which didn’t surprise me. It really isn’t a term used much these days. So she was grateful for the Internet and Wikipedia to enlighten her on the subject. It’s great that these kids these days have the Internet to use for their researching, it sure beats having to get to the library and spend so much time digging through numerous books and magazines for their needed information. Wish we had that opportunity back in my days of schooling.

Most women are concerned with the way that they look but they also want to make sure that they are as comfortable as possible. That is why it is important for you to consider the clothing that you are wearing, both what is a visible on the outside and what is not typically seen by others (Source: Lula Lu 34a bras) . So as a matter of fact, choosing the right bra can make a difference in your comfort, in your beauty and also, in some cases, in your health.
Many women who are petite tend to feel as if they are not able to find a bra size that is going to be right for them. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing 32a or 34a bras, there is going to be a choice that is right for you. You need to look for some of the common problems that occur when choosing a bra that would make it inconvenient and potentially uncomfortable. For example, if you take the bra off and it leaves a visible strap mark, that means that it is too tight for you. If it is constantly falling off of your shoulders, this means that it is too loose. There are going to be options that are available and if you have a proper bra fitting, you will be able to choose one that is right for you.
Once you’re able to find a bra that fits you properly, make sure that you wear that size by the same company on a regular basis. If you are going to switch to a different bra, make sure that you go in for a fitting once again.

Men are such strange creatures. Of all the gifts that I poured my heart and soul into purchasing for my boyfriend, not that I showered him with a lot of presents this year, but there was certainly no shortage of gifts under the tree this morning, he seemed thrilled the most with the tarps that I bought for him! I’m totally serious, his face lit up like the Christmas tree when he opened the box that contained three tarps. One clear tarp, one canvas tarp and one silver tarp that I had purchased online because I knew he had expressed his concern on the condition of his current tarps that are all beat and torn up. He has a touch of O.C.D. and certain things (like battered tarps on his nice equipment) can drive him right up the wall.
My favorite gift that he gave me was a book of poetry “Images of Love” put out by Victoria’s Secret (I didn’t even know that they sold books) a collection of some wonderful poems with beautiful illustrations by various poets, old and new. I noticed that it says Volume II on the cover. I’m going to keep my eyes open for Volume I, maybe I can find it online, since there are no brick and mortar book stores anywhere around here anymore. The closest one is almost two hours away. Breaks my heart to see so many book stores closing down all due to the Internet.

Superheros have always had a good following. Superman, Batman and Spiderman are still going strong these days and people are still wearing t shirts with these TV Show and Movie Related superheros a plenty. I have been looking for some new T shirts to wear, as I have put on a few pounds over the past couple of months and most of the ones that I have in my drawer are old, faded and a bit too tight. I don’t like wearing tight clothing, so I have been looking around online for some new ones to sport.
One of the websites that caught my attention is Wearyourbeer.com that has a great selection of a variety of t shirts to offer their online shoppers. It’s there that I see that the Batman T shirts and the Spiderman T shirts are still going strong, along with many more superheros that are still around and popular as well. Remember the Green Lantern, Aquaman, Captain America and of course good old Wonder Woman? Oldies but goodies and still kicking it!
If you are looking for t shirts at an affordable price, check out what Wearyourbeer.com has offer, they accept PayPal, which is always a plus in my book.

I suppose I’m not much different than most women, as I do so enjoy a nice looking diamond. I have always loved looking at, shopping for and the wearing of jewelry. With the exciting and sparkling bling effect that diamonds give, how can I resist when I see a fine piece at a great price? I’ve recently enjoyed looking at Bluenile.com, where they have an awesome selection of diamonds, and I’d like to pass the word around about some of the great offers that this online diamond shopping site has to offer.
They have great prices on wedding bands, engagement rings, and diamonds galore, and you can build your own ring, earrings or necklaces there. Due to the fact that they only sell online, there is no middleman involved. This makes them able to pass those savings along to their customers. I really do enjoy the buying of online, there is nothing worse than having a anxious sales associate hovering around and all over me when I’m looking at merchandise, of any kind. I like to take my time and feel free and spontaneous when I’m shopping. Free Fed Ex shipping on all these wonderful specimens of diamonds is a major plus as well.
