She Woman – that’s what I’m talkin’ about.

A couple of days ago, my client and good friend was lying on my table getting micro-current lifted and toned and we were chatting. She told me of a new terrific man she had just met and how beautiful he thinks she is and tells her all the time. We moved onto her comedy improve shows and how well they are going and in general how she is feeling altogether in her element. As I moved on to the LED softening and conditioning therapy, she mentioned that she is now obsessed with her new eyelash extensions and wanted to know if I thought that was ok. I said, “anything that makes you look and feel more beautiful and gets you more attention is great!”  And I meant it. I believe in pretty.

ALL KINDS ‘o’ pretty…

I grew up with a mother that came home on the subway and made a gourmet dinner every night in her coat. She had the same straight brunette bob with bangs my entire life, except for a perm for 5 mins in the 80’s and always had a cute as hell figure. She’s smart, funny, witty, extremely well read, deeply artistic and stylish as fu*k. Her business is graphic design, mostly in the fashion world, so I grew up knowing what couture meant. As well as who Jackson Pollack, Wllem de Kooning and Robert Rauschenberg were. I was taught that all people were equal in importance and relevance, except if you were racist or dumb. Art, literature, dance, theater, wine, cuisine, music, design, fashion, and physical beauty all ruled.

My mother has never ever left the house without lipstick or brushing her hair. She would not think to wear sweats out on the street or own a pair of Uggs and looking good is as important to her as anything else of significance, except for her family’s health. What I’m getting to is, looking your best is extremely important and empowering. Especially for women. Vanity is not a freakin’ curse word. It doesn’t mean you are shallow or silly.

Getting attention for one’s beauty is the quickest ego boost there is and we all need it.  Its then a kind of switch or stepping stone to having the energy and will to then do what you want in other areas of your life that need attention. Like finding the right mate, the perfect job, expressing that art form that plagues your soul, actually going to the gym or spin class or yoga 3 times a week and speaking up for yourself when needed, because you feel strong… and hot.. Not simple, but quite potent. So take that time and money and get your hair done and your skin healed and pampered and try those lash intentions and wax, uh-huh hair removal, thread those eyebrows and that chin now! And throw on a great shade of red lipstick and go take the world by the balls. Done.

    Hey, thanks for the pep talk. Sometimes it’s hard to see the benefits of all this maintenance, because the improvements are subtle and gradual. If you keep doing something that is good for you, you will see the benefits eventually, but so often it’s not until years later. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s worth the time and expense.

  2. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
