The Benefits In Being A Lady

When I was young, my mama used to say, Boy

A woman’s like a flower, with love on her you shower

Ever since that day, her words never went away

I always will remember to treat my baby tender

Treat Her Like A Lady”

~The Temptations~

~~~

It’s nice when a lady can attract what she is about…… a gentleman who believes in acts of chivalry towards her even in today’s modern world.

~~~

~~~

My idea of a lady is the kind of woman that has learned the fine art of how to dress and be “lady like” at all times and under various circumstances. Being “lady like” carry’s benefits like having a chivalrous man around to help her. For some it may take time to attract that right gentleman into her presence but once he is in her presence he’ll shower her with his amazing chivalrous behavior.

~~~

~~~

Having “lady like” qualities benefits a lady mainly because she sets high standards for herself and has high morals. Chivalrous behavior may seem rare these days but a ladylike woman can awaken it because her value is great. Not only is her elegant ways cherished by her, but her behavior, movements, grace, poise and gentleness is altogether enchanting and altogether lovely. A lady takes amazingly good care of herself and her grooming is impeccable! I believe a lady should always strive for improvement in herself everyday and never give up on her game.

~~~

~~~

For me there has always been many women who meet the high criteria of gracefulness, elegance and beauty with lady like qualities and some of them were way before my time and they are: Diane Carroll (TV Series Dynasty And Julia), Dorothy Dandridge, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Olivia De Havilland, Michelle Obama, Lynn Whitfield (Eve’s Bayou), Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, and Jackie O. They portray themselves to be 100% a lady! (I especially loved Diane Carroll’s lady like look when she played the role of Dominique Deveraux in the 1980’s TV series Dynasty.)

~~~

~~~

For me a lady learns to make graceful movements by handling everything with the utmost care and she never just grabs onto something. When she reaches for anything or touches anything it’s always with a gentle and graceful touch. As she so carefully picks things up and puts things back down.

~~~

~~~

She sits with her legs together, sits and stands with the best posture, allows a gentlemen to open and close doors for her, help her with her chair and her coat and thinks nothing of walking on the outside of the curb for her and when she’s cold covers her with his coat. I tell you back in the day this kind of treatment by men was more common then not. And so women felt loved, protected and cherished.

~~~

~~~

A ladylike woman always has an elegant air about her, always gentle and careful with her choice of words, sets high standards and is as morally sound as possible. She pours her tea or coffee like a lady, she’s kindhearted and treats little ones and small pets super special. She wears make up always in good taste and what I like most about being a lady is that she can be of various sizes, be it slim and trim or over weight but she knows how to wear her clothing in a way that hides her imperfections.

For me a lady likes to buy expensive types of things for herself. She is a gentle soul, always at peace with herself and hardly ever frantic. She eats and treats herself to the kinds of foods that are nourishing for both her body and soul. She is knowledgeable about various topics and subjects and exposes herself to the finer things in life and to the various arts.

~~~

~~~

So when you meet a lady don’t be surprised to find out that she has been to a finishing school of some sort and maybe taken a few classes on etiquette, grooming and majored in social graces.

~~~

~~~

And so there are more woman that I love to watch to learn and live vicariously through them such as:

Anita Baker, Lena Horne, Natalie Wood, Hedy Lamarr (Samson And Delilah), Princess Diana, Maureen O’Sullivan, Liz Taylor, Loretta Young, Joan Crawford, Claudette Colbert, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Greta Garbo, Lana Turner, Ingrid Bergman, Diane Lane, Loretta Devine, Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Angela Bassett, Sophia Lauren, Gene Tierney (The Ghost And Mrs. Muir), Maureen O’Hara, Jane Seymour (Somewhere In Time), Irene Dunne (My Favorite Wife) and the list can go on and on, but you get the idea.

~~~

~~~

I tell you there is nothing better then being a spoiled lady like woman that’s used to being treated like a tender flower.

It’s no wonder that one of my most favorite songs of all time by the Temptations is Treat Her Like A Lady!

Treat Her Like A Lady” Lyrics

~~~

Ooh, ooh, oh, ooh, oh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, oh, ooh

Ooh, yeah, baby

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh

~~~

Now I’m the kinda guy who don’t believe

That chivalry is dead, no

Cause I believe a woman should be treated

With the utmost respect, mmm, hmm

~~~

Don’t be afraid, don’t turn and walk away

I wanna get to know ya, well

Don’t be ashamed, don’t say that love’s to blame

Just come and look me over

You’ll find a heart that you’ve always been looking for

How could anybody ask for much more, woo, hoo

~~~

Now I like opening doors

Picking up her hanky off the floor

Treat her like a lady

~~~

Light her cigarette if she smokes

Even, help her with her coat, well

Treat her like a lady

In this world of liberation

It’s so easy to forget, mmm

That it’s so nice to have a man around

To lend a helping hand, you can bet, bet you can, baby

~~~

When I was young, my mama used to say, Boy

A woman’s like a flower, with love on her you shower

Ever since that day, her words never went away

I always will remember to treat my baby tender

You’ll find a heart that you’ve always been looking for

How could anybody ask for much more, whoa, ooh, ooh

~~~

Now I like opening doors

Picking up her hanky off the floor

Having A Pretty Life Style: Things I’ve Added To My Pampering Regimen

~~~

I love, love, love the Huetiful Hair and Facial Steamer. This is something I’ve added to my pampering routine lately. I never knew how steaming my hair would help my hair so much.

~~~

I also added Shea moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen And Restore Shampoo with Shea butter, peppermint and apple cider vinegar and Shea moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen And Restore Leave In Conditioner and I love how it makes my hair feel and smell.

~~~

~~~

I basically do a pre conditioning of my hair by massaging in a mixture of oils, like coconut oil, alma oil, olive oil, sulfur oil, tea tree essential oils and I leave it on for at least three hours or overnight. Then I add to a few strands at a time the Shea Moisture conditioner and spray some water on my hair then sit under the huetiful steamer. Once done I wash my hair with the Shea Moisture shampoo, rinse and dry with a towel then I add a bit of Shea butter, almond oil, vanilla oil and lemon essential oil to my damp hair. Then let it air dry. And I tell you it really helps to keep my hair moisturized, soft and smelling so fresh and amazing. I’m lovin this.

Also I am trying out Natures Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies with Biotin. I’ll let you know how this works out.

You cooked for me,

that was more then enough.

The condition of this house,

you must have got tired by cleaning it.

Put On Your Red Dress, Baby!!!

~~~~

Put on your red dress, baby. Lord, we’re goin out tonight

Put on your red dress, baby. Lord, we’re goin out tonight

and bring some boxin gloves case some fool might wanna fight

~Tommy Tucker~

High Heel Sneakers”

~~~~~~

I have to say that it’s sometimes painful

when a friend or relative or whoever hasn’t called or stopped by in a while.

It makes you say things like “what’s up with them”

But the truth of the matter is that we have to give people room

and plenty of space so that we can see how much we mean to them.

So I say, in times like these you have to “put on your red dress baby”

(you know what I mean!)

in order to improve and change things in relationships sometimes.

As my momma used to say… “it’s not wise to chase people, leave them alone.”

So that’s why we need to consider some valid points from the law of attraction.

We should hope to attract more better friends and better people in our lives

and know it’s much healthier to face the truth about

ones relatives, friendships and relationships.

~So I hope you enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by~

High Heel Sneakers Full Lyrics”

Put on your red dress, baby

Lord, we’re goin out tonight

Put on your red dress, baby

Put on your high heel sneakers, child

wear your wig hat on your head now

put on your high heel sneakers baby

wear your wig hat on your head

Ya know you’re looking mighty good, really

I’m pretty sure you’re gonna knock em dead

~It’s A Sin For A Woman To Have Desires~ Learning To Sing “Raja Yaman” From Behind A Curtain: On Balika Vadu

BOLLYWOOD SONGS MEDLAY OF RAG YAMAN

COVERED BY ALPANA MEHROTRA

~~~

Wonderful! After hearing you, I think… your base has become strong. We can continue. Lets start. Well start with the melody (raga). Raga Yaman! May I ask you something? Your voice is so melodious. Have you really not learnt music before this? [Niranjan]

No. [Gehna Basant Singh]

Even you know that…. you’re good at music. You have a beautiful voice too. Did you ever feel to learn music before? [Niranjan]

Do you have a sister? [Gehna Basant Singh]

Yes. I have a younger sister. [Niranjan]

Does she sing? [Gehna Basant Singh]

She practiced with me before she got married. But now…. ooh. I can understand. There are many limitations for women in our society. Its a big thing that they breathe to live. Learning music is not easy. [Niranjan]

If she is from a poor family.. its a sin to have desires. [Gehna Basant Singh]

Which village are you from? [Niranjan]

Which raga were you talking about? [Gehna Basant Singh]

That was Raga Yaman. Before starting this raja I want to give you something. Take this. This is Goddess Saraswati’s photograph. If you keep it in front of you and practice….you’ll soon be a master in music. [Niranjan]

Thank you. Henceforth, I shall keep it in front of me and practice. [Gehna Basant Singh]

This is Raja Yaman. It has to be sung only at evenings. [Niranjan]

No Money For Flooring (DICB) Do It Cheaply And Beautify

I know people who just absolutely cannot afford to put down any type of new flooring at all in their homes. The cost for doing so is just way over their heads. Whether its buying wood floors, bamboo, linoleum or putting down wall to wall carpeting. Some people just do not have the funds and so they settle with living with ugly unsightly floors. Ugh!

So now, rather then live with ugly patched up looking floors I say it’s possible to do something about those ugly floors when covering them is just absolutely not in the budget right now.

I found these few YouTube videos and these brave women inspired me so much. I wish there were more about using contact to cover floors. I have to say using contact is a inexpensive, quick and easy way to beautify your home in so many ways.

I can remember growing up in a poor family and my mother used to use contact like crazy to help beautify our home. Not only was our home spotless, it was so cozy and warm. She used pick some pretty contact paper to cover the walls, kitchen cabinets, shelves and even tables. And wow did the house look so clean and beautiful all of the time. My mom would hang some really cute curtains to the windows to match and she used to buy pretty sheets and turn them into curtains and hang them to windows and closet doors and they looked amazing. Back then no one was doing this with sheets and you could buy sheets so cheaply. Even buy them from the thrift shops and re-purpose them. I tell you my mother was shrewd, LOL!

Well I have to tell you that I spent so much time trying to think of a way to cover our floors without having to spend a fortune. And so when I saw these YouTube videos I was so amazed with the idea. So I went ahead and purchased some plain glossy white contact and at first we tried it out on the floor in our guest room. Lo and behold it looked amazing! And so so pretty and clean. And so we went on and used it for a few other rooms in the house except for the kitchen. And I have to tell you we covered up to four (4) other rooms and a bathroom too and the total cost was only one hundred dollars. ($100.00) Yes that’s right only $100 dollars.

Now I have to tell you we had estimates for the floors for the entire house and it ran from the cheapest of $2000 to the highest of $10,000. And I am a cheapo. I tell you I would rather hold onto my money and let it grow in my savings account rather then spend it in one sweep on some floors right about now. Especially when there is a way to extend the time of having to do it by choosing a less expensive and easy way to cover them up and they look just as great. And they are so easy to keep clean. So now I use a damp dust mop or a small broom to keep them clean. And we always never wear shoes in the house as they are always left at the doorway. I am so impressed and feel so good that I didn’t have to spend excessive amounts of money.

Now who knows sometime in the future we may go ahead and bite the bullet and spend the money on redoing all the floors but until then this way works and no one will know it’s contact paper unless we tell them or you tell them now that you know our secret. (LOL!)

So our next project is to shop for a mint colored contact paper to cover the kitchen floor to match the freshly painted mint color kitchen cabinets. I’d love to find some contact paper that has sprinkles of red cherries in it. Like this fabric below…….

Just imagine how pretty that will be on the kitchen floor, I know I can!

So as you know I also chose to cover our bedroom floors with thin beautiful quilts in the winter and I do it because I absolutely just hate wall to wall carpets or any carpets because they cannot be washed in a washing machine and so I like the idea of being able to pick up the quilts as they get dusty and dirty and toss them in the washing machine and then put them back down on the floors again after they have been washed very well in some amazing smelling soapy laundry detergent and some great smelling fabric softener. (I posted about how I use quilts on floors, see 2 links to it at end of this post if you’d like to read it.) These quilts I purchased look so amazing and help to keep our house warm and our toes toasty by keeping the cold floors covered with them.

So I am not afraid to experiment the way I do and to try and do things differently then the norm. After all I learned from the best (my mom) how to improvise and re-purpose things. Especially when it will help me save my money and makes the house look better and cozy at the same time.

~So I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by my blog!~

Prepping: Adding A Good Emergency Crank Radio To My Preparedness Arsenal

Did you know that having an emergency crank radio will allow to get signals that most modern technology cannot receive?

Staying connected to get updates on a disaster situation and weather updates from the National Weather Service that you may not get with a standard radio helps to stay on top of information on hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding. I want to be ready in any catastrophes or events for when the power goes out or for when the SHTF.

So that’s why I added an E Ready Emergency Crank Radio to my prepping arsenal. This radio has a hand crank in case it runs out of a charge but it also has a rechargeable battery and solar energy options. It charges your devices and has an SOS flashlight.

Being prepared is my number one reason for adding this to my prepping arsenal.

Prayer Is The Most Powerful Tool: My Constant Prayer Vigil For My Family And Others

I like to and been keeping my family in prayer for many, many years. And so I decided to step it up a pace this week by holding prayer vigils for them from time to time. I’ll set aside time, each and every day to pray for my family members at least for 10 to 15 minutes or more per person each one of my waking hours. The first hour I might pray for one member and the next hour another member and so forth and so on. So each waking hour I am praying for every last one of them. Also I might decide to turn away from my plate and fast for each one of them as well a few days a week. And of course while I am praying I am praying for my own relationship with them to be improved where it needs to be and to grow and blossom into something better and amazing everyday. If they ask me to pray for a need they have I do lift it up before the Most High.

The best part about all this praying is getting to witness answered prayers in their lives.

I have to tell you doing this feels so good and I know that the Most High hears me when I pray and I like knowing my prayers is like a blanket of protection of love and care for each individual.

Prayer is the most powerful tool on the face of the earth.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and reading my post today.
