#826 The warmth of your beard...

When I was in college, a beard seemed to be a distinguishing mark of the male doctor, and yes I studied to be a nurse, so the male doctor was everywhere around me. In saying that, there were not many people that had beards.. it was indeed rare.  Because doctors worked such long hours, the beard was quite common, or the 2 day growth in some occasions. 

Growing up, My father used to shave every day, and I would watch this procedure as young girl sitting on the side of the basin watching his daily grooming habit. The smell of cologne when he splashed his face, apart from the sound he would make when the alcohol hit his bare skin. 

I used to admire the men with beards and always wondered was it hot for them in summer, even itchy?  

Until the day I met a man that didn’t shave his face, but groomed and trimmed both mo and beard quite often.  Now it seems that facial hair for men is becoming closer to the norm, or at least a relatively well-established trend. Men now sport everything from closely-cropped stubble to a long, wizard-like beard.  

While talking about the trend with a friend we were discussing the pros and cons of men’s facial hair and whether we thought facial hair made a man more or less attractive to women. Having come from a father that was always well groomed and clean shaven, the bearded man seems to me more masculine, definitely more attractive, and ruggedly (if that is a word) handsome. 

Thoughts to all you women out there, do you prefer the bearded man, or the fresh faced skin?

#825 We all come to a place to play and unwind...

Can proudly state I have entered the 10 year club with my time being on Secondlife. Upon realising the 10 years the other day, I must admit it took me by surprise. Apart from the days of Runescape which I used to play such a long time ago, Secondlife has been my only 'game' that I have been coming back to for so long. Whilst it is a game in which you logon, I have met many amazing people from different countries and different languages that interests me every day.

In the 10 years I have seen so many changes in one game, it is quite amazing. The introduction of mesh is by far one of the largest changes this game has gone through and one that interests me on a creator level, that's if I ever have the time to learn more.

In the 10 years, I have seen some amazing designers have such talent, and truly awe inspiring bloggers that just wow me with their creative inspirations and their life like designs.

One area of Secondlife that I wish would change is the hate factor that seems to appear sometimes when people admire another person's work, and yes they do copy them sometimes. Instead of saying "Wow, I am so proud you like my work", they instead berate and criticize that person which is quite sad and childish. Whilst I don't believe in copying a person's work, I do like people to be creative but at the same time, we are real people playing this game, whether it is just a creative space for you, or you have a business here, remember we all would like to be around for the next 10 years....

#824 Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is a thing..

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is a thing. I have gone back and forth on it myself, but this year I find thinking well why not for a change just follow along. 

As a self-proclaimed pessimist (joking), I used to think Valentine’s Day is just another mushy day where men and women have to be reminded to show love on that day.  

After taking a step back, I have discovered that Valentine’s Day is really a special day, that we should embrace love and affection and remember it is all about the giving and receiving. I found this on a website and thought I couldn’t resist sharing...
