I Love My Lipstick

For me, my lipstick is a fashion necessity. However, it also has some additional benefit:
  •     It supports lip hydration
  •     It can be a good sunscreen
  •     Can improve your mental health
Many lipsticks have moisturizing additives to help keep your lips soft and hydrated. Adding a lipstick with a good sunscreen can protect your lips from the harsh sunlight. Finally, studies support the "Lipstick Effect," which indicates that when the economy is bad, women spend more money on items like lipstick. To increase the effectiveness of lipstick, do you exfoliate your lips and do you know which colors work best for your skin tone? Below is a video on a DYI lip exfoliate, followed by a chart showing which lipstick shade works on the which skin tone.

Femulating For Life

Relay For Life is a community based fundraising event of the American Cancer Society. Each year, more than 5,000 Relay For Life events take place in over twenty countries. Events are held in local communities, campus universities and in virtual worlds. As the American Cancer Society"s most successful fundraiser and the organization"s signature event, the mission of Relay For Life is to raise funds to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer, and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers. (Source: Wikipedia) Some Relay For Life events include womanless beauty pageant competitions . Having lost my parents to cancer, I have participated in local Relay For Life events. None of my local events have included womanless beauty contests, so I have not had the opportunity to strut my stuff and take home the gold. Instead, I have had to admire and envy the womanless events that have taken place at other Relay For Life events. The better femulations at these events have been documented in this blog in the past. Recently, I encountered a photo on the Internet that was reputed to be taken at a Relay For Life womanless contest. The femulations looked better than average, so I wanted to find out more. After a little digging (with a Google shovel), I found the source of the photo: the Polk County, Arkansas, Relay For Life "Miss-Ter Relay Pageant" in April 2014. The pageant is documented on Facebook with a slew of photos of the beauties who participated. Here is the Facebook link for you to admire (and envy), too!

Curious X 3

crossdresser
1 David Walliams authored a popular kids" book titled The Boy in the Dress. And World Book Day is an annual event intended to encourage reading. Schools around the world celebrate the day and some of these celebrations include encouraging students to attend school on that day costumed as their favorite book character. And some boys show up dressed as the crossdressing Dennis from Walliams" book. (I"d prefer to go as Trudy from Coffee, Tea or Me?, but that"s me.) Anyway, I was curious how popular was dressing as Dennis for World Book Day, so I searched the Internet and found over 60 photos of schoolboys dressed as Dennis en femme. I was also surprised to find a few photos of male teachers also dressed as Dennis en femme. 2 My curiosity about how I got this way has never waned, although I am less concerned about it in my old age because I don"t think I will ever know for sure. But I still find information on the topic interesting and so I found another reference to the finger-length indicator that I"ve discussed here in the past. So it goes that if your ring and index fingers are approximately equal in length, you are female and if your ring finger is longer than your index finger, you are male. I was born with male plumbing, but my ring and index fingers are equal in length indicating that I am female. No surprise there! Anyway, Christen"s blog, The Woman Within, has a fascinating article on the topic, as well as other posts of interest. So go there! 3 And this was kind of curious... this blog gets at least 5,000 hits ("pageviews") per day. Sometimes more, but always at least 5,000 hits each day. On Monday, the blog had 10,548 hits! Why? I don"t know. There wasn"t even a new post on Monday, so go figure!

5 Tips for Parents of Transgender Children

Raising children is certainly one of life"s most rewarding experiences yet simultaneously presents some of our greatest challenges. As information about transgender children continues to spread, more and more parents of are quickly moving through any personal fears to fully support their trans child. It"s important to understand that the sooner you help your trans child transition from their assigned gender to their true gender identity, the happier they"re likely to be throughout their entire life. crossdressing

Tips For Parents Raising a Transgender Child

Never stop showing your child unconditional love! Regardless of what your wishes for your child were or are, children are their own people and are here to live their own lives, not to please us as parents. Teach your child that you will love them no matter what and that you will do anything you can to support their needs.   crossdressing Consider visiting a gender specialist at an early age if your child insists that he or she feels like the gender opposite the one they were assigned at birth; or if your child is indeed determined to be transgender, you can help your child make a "social transition" into their gender identity. crossdresser

Once you are aware that you are raising a transgender child, you can help them learn methods of developing healthy self-esteem. You may wish to work with a transgender friendly family therapist to help all members adjust to the changes; in many cases, it"s actually the parents that need more help adjusting than the trans child, particularly if the child was allowed to make a social transition at an early age.   crossdressing Puberty blockers and cross sex hormones may help your preteen and teenage trans child adjust to their growing body. Many transgender children are fearful about what will happen to their bodies once they reach puberty, but puberty blocking medications offer another option by delaying the onset of puberty with no long-term side effects. Cross sex hormones, taken during the teenage years, may have permanent physical effects, but in most cases, these effects will be desirable to your trans child and will help them adjust over the long-term. Plenty of support exists for parents of transgender children. As more and more transgender people "go public" and more parents openly support their trans children from a very young age, the number of online and local support groups keeps steadily increasing.   crossdressing

Greater Equality is Leading to Wider Acceptance

Parents no longer need to feel ashamed of their transgender children thanks to the strong parents and transgender people who have come before to pave the way for more equality in society. By honoring our children for who they are, we can offer them the unconditional love and support they most need to grow into the truest versions of themselves. crossdresser

Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Just finishing two weeks" vacation. It was wonderful taking two weeks off back-to-back. I have not done that in a long time, but with so much vacation time on my hands, I figured, "Why not!" I mostly hung around town. I did some home repairs that I have put off doing for years. Otherwise, I did not do much. I didn"t even do much blogging, as you may have noticed. t was very relaxing. My wife had a birthday during my vacation, so I took her shopping. We went to my favorite store, Dress Barn, and I bought her whatever she wanted. It was the Dress Barn nearest my home, not the store near work where I am a frequent shopper in girl and boy mode. So I was not familiar with the sales staff, nor they with me. Although I was in boy mode, I perused the racks "looking for stuff for my wife to try on." It was a perfect cover! I saw a few items for my girl mode, but I thought I already have plenty to wear and since I have not gone out much lately, I really didn"t need anything new. But it"s that time of year when gurls have visions of Provincetown dancing in their head. That includes me and I have been thinking about going to Fantasia Fair, but I can"t make up my mind. To help me make a decision, I listed the positives and negatives about going.

+ Have plenty of vacation time left to use + It is personally affordable this year + Wife"s health is stable, so my absence from home would not be a burden + There are still rooms available in Provincetown + Have not gone to Fantasia Fair in two years + Opportunity to see old friends + Opportunity to present as a woman 24/7 for an extended period of time + Have plenty of new outfits to wear + I love Provincetown - Packing - Conflicts with baseball post-season (my Red Sox are in a position to be participants this year) - Been there, done that regarding the Fantasia Fair schedule of activities - I dislike the 4-hour drive to and from (especially from) Provincetown - My dog lost her eyesight recently, so she may be a burden while I"m gone - Just went to Fantasia Fair two years ago - It is off-season, so some Provincetown places are closed - Provincetown knows the gurls are in town, so passing is difficult - Adams Pharmacy So, should I stay or should I go?
