  5. Maxi Dresses

    June 6, 2009 by barbara

    Whenever I see some women wearing maxi dresses, I feel a tinge of envy.  Effortlessly elegant, the maxi dress is flattering and is a nice change a girl’s typical wardrobe.  These long flowing dresses are also a favourite among celebrities.   Maxi dresses are just perfect for the summer.  Oh how I wish I could wear one.  I am just not brave enough because I do not have the height to pull it off and I am also weight-challenge.  I do not look good in one.  For the height part, I know I can always wear a pair of stilettos but the weight?  Perhaps I should take a few fat burner pills and lose some weight?

  7. Holiday By The Beach

    June 4, 2009 by barbara

    In a few days’ time, me and my family will be going away for a couple of days.  This is our first vacation in many years.  We will be heading to an island and spending some time at a beach resort.  There is nothing like relaxing on the beach, listening to the waves.  I told my husband that I don’t think I would want to leave the resort and venture out for sightseeing around the island.  It is better to relax at the beach resort.  Maybe for our next vacation, we would get an rv and drive up north.  That would be very enjoyable too.
