Tips on looking & feeling beautiful, including cosmetic, bath & body product reviews.
Why am I comparing your face to real estate? Seems unlikely; after all, no poet has ever written, "Shall I compare thee to a Southern Plantation..."
But there are many reasons to view your appearance as your personal real estate.

Recently in chat Slip of a Girl
and myself have been discussing those beauty faux pas that we know we break. Kat
and I have had similar talks -- even to the point of having odd challenges in which we compete for who is 'uglier' or 'lazier'. (There are no prizes; it's just something we do now and then.)
We know that breaking these rules can take the 'sex' right out of 'sex kitten'; but we do it anyway. That might even be why we do it...
Since this phenomenon isn't apparently as rare as I once thought, I figured I'd publicly declare a few of the beauty rules routinely broken.
If it serves as a "Do as I say, not as I do" and you become ultra glamorous, that's cool. It you see yourself here, then at least you know you're in good company -- still cool, not a fool.
If you're a guy who thinks his sex kitten is too high maintenance, then consider yourself served a big dose of reality -- she could be following all these rules.

Most women have wondered about wigs.
Maybe you're fighting cancer & facing chemo, maybe you've been in a life long war with your hair, maybe you've been toying with the idea of wearing wigs with your exotic lingerie to spice things up, or maybe Cher just got you thinking... But chances are, you've wondered about wigs.

How radiant do you wish to look?
Many folks still think a tan or a 'sunkist' look is sexier than any other (pale) look. You'll find these folks basking in the sun, hoping that even after the sun goes down, you'll find them radiant looking. Even with winter approaching (for most of us), you still need to be aware. (Especially those who continue to go for that all-year tan, in fake-n-bake tanning beds.)
All I can say, as a near albino, is Be careful!

Patchouli...it's more medicinal than you might have thought...
I live for the day when the Q & A in beauty magazines deal with the questions we are most reluctant to ask ~ afterall, wouldn't it be nicer to write in as "Blotchy in MN" rather than ask a girlfriend or medical professional for some help with blotches & other skin problems after some BDSM play? But you don't have to wait for the magazines to become helpful, because as usual, the Sex Kittens are here to help!
Wouldn't it be nice, to sit amongst the blooms, taking in their delightful aroma, all while receiving a sensuous massage?
Sex Kittens are not wilted flowers!
Why is it just fine for a woman* to seek counseling or other help to perfect herself, but it is horrible for a woman to want to perfect her physical presentation?
In 1940 George A McNamara wrote 'Essay on Jiggling.' which is part ode to spring, yes, but mainly it is an ageless ode to that which is woman...

Vamp It Up!
Article, by Deanna Ferber, of GlamKitty, LLC, used with permission
Long before Garbo, there were the vamps. Now we use the word vamp to convey sexual seduction with a hint of camp, but the original vamps were evil. Vamps were like vampires that sucked the life out of their victims. True femme fatals, they stole a man's power -- and enjoyed it!
She was cryptic, ageless. Cold yet sensual. Sex with a vamp meant danger, but it might just be worth it...

Dear Gracie, what's the deal with men... They say they want a 'natual looking' girl, but guess who always gets the looks? The girl with wild & big hair & blood red lips does, that's who! Unless the natural girl is the one with the huge tits & the lowcut shirt, she doesn't get the attention. And even then, if Miss Big Hair is stacked as well, 'natural girl' is invisible again... But, if your guy says 'natural' and you aren't a big makeup freak yourself, what can you, what should you do?
