History of Fashion Accessories Series

As the 2011 comes to the end, the History of Fashion Accessories Series was born and is marching into 2012. Everybody knows that no outfit is complete without any accessories. Trinity of hats, scarves and gloves is a common ensemble that is used as modern fashion accessory by women, men and children.
Books about socks and gloves will take you on a journey to learn throughout information and visual literacy about hand wear and foot wear. The book entitled "Socks: History and Present" by Ida Tomshinsky ended up on the X-mas stockings all around the world. The other book from this series entitled "Gloves: History and Present" by the same author, Ida Tomshinky, offers a new look on the great antiquity of hand wear. The third book-manuscript, as promised, completed and is in line for ready-to-read.

"Snow-Flakes" by H. W. Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the air,
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
Descends the snow.

Even as our cloudy fancies take
Suddenly shape in some divine expression,
Even at the troubled heart doth make
In the white countenance confession,
The troubled sky reveals
The grief feels.

This is the poem of the air,
Slowly in silent syllables recorded;
This is the secret of despair,
Long in its cloudy bosom hoarded,
Now whispered and revealed
To wood and field.

"Winter" by William Carlos Willimas

Now the snow
lies on the ground
and more snow
is descending upon it-
Patches of red dirt
hold together
the old
snow patches

This winter -
rosettes of
leather-green leaves
by the old fence
and bare trees
marking the sky-

This is winter
winter, winter
leather-green leaves
in the falling snow

Weather Effect

We are very fortunate to live in a climate where winter weather stimulates 365 days...with exception of a few.
It's time to stop letting a bulding belly, saggy behind, or jiggly thights ruin the day. Think about how much power are giving to one measly body part when stand in front of the mirror, scold for not being an inch better, and then pull over the dark-colored baggy clothes to hide behind.
The body-shaping menu plan, a shape-up plan, and stick-with-it tips learned from both plans. They are great tools.
The shape-up success program is on! The most important to feel good, and a good plan always was a beginning to stop the negative self-talk that can sabotage any good efforts.
Weather effect definitely helps to move on and to get more firmer and more flatter.
