Perfection Can Never be Attained?


“Dressed to the nines.”

Although the general consensus to the origin of “Dressed to the Nines” is unknown; consider the meaning to be simply a reference of scale. “ On a scale of one to ten; you are dressed to the nines”  Since perfection can never be attained, nine would be the absolute best.

The phrases ‘to the nines’, or ‘to the nine’, were used to indicate perfection – the highest standards. That was in use in the 18th century, as here from William Hamilton’s Epistle to Ramsay, 1719:

“How the nines, they did content me.”

‘To the nines’ has now gone out of use and only persists in the more specific ‘dressed to the nines’ (or sometimes ‘dressed up to the nines’).  Dressed to the nines, or dressed up to the nines are merely a version of the phrase that is applied to clothing.

It is really rare for me to dress to the nines though.

However, there were many times I managed to grab some pretty dresses that cost me only $9.90 and put me up on cloud number 9!!

Do enjoy the song and have fun reading!

Till then,

Don’t Get Too Excited~


” Be still, my beating heart.”

An expression of excitement when seeing the object of one’s romantic affections.

Here’s an extract of the lyrics  from a song titled “Be Still  My Beating Heart” by Sting:

Be still my beating heart

It would be better to be cool

It’s not time to be open just yet

A lesson once learned is so hard to forget


To be still, or not to be, don’t be still for too long…blood circulation is still needed for our hearts to stay alive. 😛

Enjoy reading!

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

To Lie, Or Not To…


The Camera Cannot Lie…

(Origin) Printed photographs began to be available to the general public around the mid 19th century.

When this phrase was coined, which appears to be just a few years later, the view that a photograph was a faithful representation of a scene, in a way that a subjective painting could never be, was a reasonable one.

(Information Extracted From: The Phrase Finder,

With today’s technology (love it!), I will need to agree with the following quote:

The camera cannot lie, but it can be an accessory to untruth.
Harold Evans

Hmmm…it may be an accessory to untruth, one thing for sure is that the photo of this camera necklace is definitely true to its actual outlook

Love it or hate it?

It’s really up to you lovely souls out there!


Have fun reading!

Men Are Complicated

“Men Are Complicated”

Gotten this cartoon from a blog I’ve just read and it inspired me to do a post on our bikini necklace.

Just click on the picture to enter the blogger’s site.

The bikini is perhaps the most popular female beachwear around the globe, according to French fashion historian Olivier Saillard due to “the power of women, and not the power of fashion”.

The groundwork for the modern bikini began to be laid in 1907, when Australian swimmer and performer Annette Kellerman was arrested on a Boston beach for wearing a form-fitting one-piece swimsuit, which became an accepted beach attire for women by 1910.

By the early 1940s two-piece swimsuits were frequent on American beaches. Finally, the modern bikini was introduced by French engineer Louis Réard and fashion designer Jacques Heim in Paris in 1946.

Mankini is a type of sling bikini worn by men.

It was popularized by Sacha Baron Cohen when he donned one in the film Borat.


Since this is supposed to be a re-blog of ‘Men Are Complicated’ (though I didn’t do it in the proper way), let’s see what really attracts a man and are they really as complicated as a woman?

  • Physical Appearance – Men will not go for women who they find very physically unattractive, unless they have no other options.
  • High Self-Esteem but not Arrogance – Men like to be around women who like, accept and appreciate themselves, despite any personal flaws that they have.
  • Confidence – Confidence tells a man that you are not going to be a dead weight tied around his waist that he has to carry through life. It causes him to believe that you can pull your own weight, by being able to successfully navigate your own way through life without him being around.
  • Independence – Men like women who are independent and have a life of their own, rather than those whose only mission in life is to find a great man and cling to him.
  • Love of Life, Happiness, and Emotionally Stability – Men are not attracted to women who are unhappy, angry, moody, have ADD and are all over the place, or those who are full of drama.
  • Intelligence – What men don’t like is when women use their intelligence in ways that are competitive, such as trying to win arguments and prove them wrong.
  • Strong, but Submissive (Feminine) – The masculine and feminine are polar opposites that naturally attract each other, since they are complementary. It does not work if you have either two leaders or two followers in a relationship.
  • The clothes Men like Women to wear – In terms of clothing, most men don’t care what a woman wears, as long as she dresses in a clean and tidy way. Don’t dress too sexy if you want to be relationship material for a man (otherwise it is very hard for him to see you as anything other than a sexual object).


I nearly giggle out loud when I saw the word mankini. 

Well, I am not a feminist…it is just the word. I was just thinking…

If the mankini is for man, shouldn’t bikini be changed to ‘wokini’ (short for woman) or ‘lakini’ (short for lady) instead?

Hope you enjoy this post!

Till then,


What does a woman need?


A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle 

A feminist slogan, suggesting that men are superfluous to women’s needs. 

(Origin) This slogan is often attributed to Gloria Steinem. Other claims for origination point to Florynce Kennedy, or to an anonymous author who painted the slogan on a wall at University of Wisconsin in 1969.

In fact, it was Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney.

(The Phrase Finder,

Man: I need a bicycle

Seller: For your kid?

Man: Nope, for my wife.

Happy reading and TTFN~
