… a lil’ romance now and then.

 

It was a little perturbing to me, to read on Twitter how little faith women had in men when it comes to wooing, or rather, when it comes to being romantic.

Perhaps it’s simply luck that I have oft been privileged to have experienced the

blushing, the butterflies, and the embarrassment (if I may say so) of a romantic ‘nothing’, ‘something’, ‘everything’.

So after hearing the ladies complain – “Men don’t know what it is to be romantic” – and the men saying “Women don’t appreciate the small things that we do.” I felt it was my ‘duty’ to write about it… the answer to a post featured on my dear friend and fellow blogger Mamachel‘s site.

I’ve decided to share it with you, my readers, so you can give your two cents on the subject and perhaps share your personal experiences with your loved ones. What do you do to show someone that you care? And what IS romance anyway?

Until next time…

Queens of Clutter

I find it amusing when I listen to the tales of distress that many of my friends in College have where their roommates are concerned (yes, I still have friends who are in College). And, it’s even worse with my friends who have shacked up with their ‘significant others’. It takes a lot of patience to live with someone, and to ‘share your space’.
I’ve heard lots of girls talk about the gross habits that men have. But the truth is, we have some pretty gross habits of our own!

I am definitely guilty of being messy once in awhile…not gonna deny it. However, some women go overboard – they need to try every new shampoo, hair product, lip gloss, mascara, etc. etc. and guess where it all ends up?! It’s not just the mess, but the AMOUNT of mess that’s made from accumulating all sorts of junk that you’re probably NEVER going to use! Should we create a spin-off of that TV show “Hoarders”?

I like to think of myself and being closer to the “low maintenance” side of things – I have one shampoo, one conditioner, two bottles of perfume on my dresser, a bottle of leave in conditioner, and all my makeup is safely stashed in a makeup case. Why some people need SIX bottles of shampoo is beyond me!!?

Of course, this never seems to bother THEM; it’s always the people who they live with you are then left to deal with the clutter, clean up after them, and try to find space for their one bottle of body wash.

I’m sure I could go on and on about this, but for now, I’ll stop here. Ladies, clean up your act. Whatever happened to moderation? Give away or throw out what you know you’re not going to use ( I know many of you have emotional attachment to your beauty products). And, some of you KNOW damn well they ain’t gonna help you to look any better – you may need plastic surgery or a good hair weave for that 😛

(psssstttt – what’s currently cluttering YOUR space?)
