Mustache DIY

On behalf of Mustache March I decided to partake with a Mustache March competition that included females. I for one has fierce competition but as the only female entrant I win by default but I want to make sure my mustache is a standout.

I figured I buy a beard from Amazon but when it came I opted against wearing it since its a beard not a mustache. I figured I want to make it personalized so I tried to use a cutout with cloth and affix peacock feathers but the feathers were difficult to work with.

My second attempt was from a Youtube video of false lashes as mustaches. It was realistic enough and I can work bejeweling it to make look feminine. Yeah, its a mustache but I want it to still look cute. Thankfully, I managed to find several pairs of false lashes being sold at a discount. I processed to stack 4 lashes on top of the other, being careful to attach stick-on jewels to dazzle the stache and after several takes I came up with a pair of falsies as my mustache.

Tell me what you think?

Wish me luck!

Girl…cover-up!

I have this black sleeveless body hugging dress that accentuates every fold I have. On top of that it has a risque criss-cross opening as a bodice, only cute for someone folded and curvier in the right places…if you know what I mean.

Why do I own one then? Well, I can’t remember but if I were to guess, I bought it because it happened to be on sale.

…so I’m stuck with it and I’m determined to use it for what its worth even if it means covering up!

My go-to covering is a long sleeve men’s shirt of any color, so I was able to wear this dress with different patterned shirts from neutral to bold colors.

In the end, covering up made me more comfortable and bold because I know underneath I’m wearing a one sexy number!

 

Social experiment caused by facial acne.

I accepted the fact that due to a lot of factors my skin (controllable or not), my forehead decides to play connect the dots in the form of acne, zits or pimples. Of course the typical thing to do is make changes in diet, reduce stress through exercise/meditation that include facial routines such as cleansing with toners, using moisturizers and the applying of makeup.

Instead I decided to do a social experiment by not covering up my acne riddled forehead to see how I get treated differently compared to making the effort of covering up in makeup. I figured why be embarrassed when I can learn from what is the cost of being true to one self, versus building up the confidence at my best, or at my worst look.

You see, I’ve been makeup free for over a month and noticed that my close friends/associates direct and indirect made connotations towards my face. The worst one was from a cashier who couldn’t help but snicker as he rang up my groceries. For some reason, I agreed how silly I must have looked so instead of getting offended, I joined in due to the humor of it all. Having received mixed reactions based on my experiment, I can safely say that not covering up in makeup made the majority of women be indifferent toward me. I felt judged because of my face while its quite the oppossite among the majority of men. Most of which did not make me feel self conscious or ashamed, nor was I treated any different.

Quite a stark difference when I started wearing makeup to cover up my unevenly colored and acne riddled forehead. For example I noticed that I received better service. I didn’t receive any awkward responses such as looking up to my forehead as I receive a response. Also, there was limited avoidance in eye contact when talking. I guess I looked “sanitary,” so I was easy to talk and be around especially now that I’m doing something about my face.

Overall, it goes to show how vain we can be since it makes a huge impression especially out in public.

 

Fired due to dress code…

I read an article about a lesbian getting fired because she chose to wear men’s suits over the office dress code set for females. Of course the company insists the cause of her firing was due to her being late but she begs to differ.

I get the fact that unless its for safety reasons then yes I am for using proper dress code/uniforms, but I find it odd that being subjected to normal wear for the company to maintain its own self image might have to consider our changing times. Unless the company is representing or beliefs conservative/contemporary views then maybe employees should state the dress code and not hire those who clearly are against it.

Conservative/contemporary norms of wear is constantly being questioned at work. Therefore, if the job is getting done and unless there is a safety concern that the employee is clearly going against then yes I am for dress codes. If not, then I would suggest company policy needs to reconsider this matter.

Do you agree, disagree or indiferrent?
