Blue, yellow, orange, red...

Thinking about summer, this is what immediately comes to my mind: brilliant, saturated and vivid colours: a touch of colour can influence your mood and, why not, even give you a smile. Sometimes!
Summer, however, also means hot, very hot weather, which means heat waves, which means increase in those fluids secreted by the sweat glands, more commonly known as sweat.
Has it ever happened to you, while in the middle of your self-contemplation in front of the mirror, trying on a wonderful dress or a dress shirt and suddenly start noticing something which makes you feel terribly uncomfortable, enormously embarrassed? Something strange, disgraceful in your underarms… Oh, what is it? A hard visible trace going to be larger and larger, oh s***! An obvious pit stain, just out there, on a $$$ piece of clothing, perhaps still unpaid, sigh! What can I do to avoid it?
Being an “expert on the sector”, after so many awkward situations, I’ve finally succeeded in reducing this inconvenient. When I go shopping in stores, I always remember to put in my handbag a small pack of Kleenex, better if perfumed, to wipe off the sweat before, during and after trying on whatever. Furthermore, I choose the fitting room positioned to the nearest AC system, if possible; no matter the neck pain or head cold, once home: cold is crucial.
Thermal water, then, is a must-have: you can vaporize wherever and whenever, to refresh and rehydrate your face and body in just a few seconds, feeling immediately better.
Wearing dark coloured clothing is a valuable help for shaping the figure; however, as the heat rises, while dark shades do absorb the light and convert it into heat, increasing the temperature, soft white ones don’t, allowing therefore, your skin to breathe, and you to stay fresh, not greasy and at ease.
Cotton and linen are highly suggested for the season: elegant and chic, great with leather or bright accessories, perfect on sun tanned skin, for an incredible gorgeous look.

Have fun, girls, and tan wisely and stay always positive.


Time flows

Time flows.
Sometimes too fast, some others it stands still and everything seems so l o o o n g and boring.

How many of us have ever looked insistently and nervously at that cadent, old, somewhat marvellous movement of the clock hands?
Very few, I suppose. At least, since mobiles appeared!
Ok, I will rephrase my question.
How many of us have ever stolen a glance at the time on the mobile, while faking interest in an annoying conversation with someone? I have.
Going back and forth, fidgeting with our fingers and waiting for the most various reasons: a job call that never comes, a traffic light stuck on red, a turn in an endless line, someone on a date…
The incredible thing is, we can manage the dimension of our time; it relies on us, actually. In bad times, think that whatever it is, it will not last forever. Nothing does! Try to stay positive; inhale through the nose, hold for one moment and breathe out through the mouth. Repeatedly.
In good times, live in the present moment, as much as possible. Past is gone and future… who knows?

I figured out some survival strategies:

Have you always been respectful of those friends who take at least 20- 25 minutes each time before showing up? Right. Do not forget that your time is as precious and valuable as your friends’ time. Respect, kindness and patience should be repaid likewise. This is not a fair world, though; so, talk to them, openly, without the fear of hurting their feelings and let them know what really bothers you. Doesn’t it work yet? You know what to do, then ;).
Yourself first.

Have you been waiting for a lover or similar stuff who does not return your calls? Does it sound familiar? Just turn off the phone, go out sporting, meet friends, do whatever BUT please, do not remain inactive and impatient, expecting something happens.
Yourself first. Again.

Have you been sending resumes everywhere and still nothing comes up? I know how frustrating it is, I went through: it looks as if all your efforts were wasted and useless while time is flying by and you are short of money. Do not give up, move on and when possible, take a little time to do what you like most.

spring has arrived, the sun is knocking at our door.
Let’s say goodbye to laziness and go out smiling.
