Fashion Comfort VS Fashion Pain

In my life as I was growing up, I was always paying attention to fashion, always asking my mom when I was a kid, Mom I only want this kind of clothing and shoes, and I used to be a big brand name supporter, but my mom always taught me sweetie, its better to be comfortable and wear good clothing, not to try to grow up so fast, but in the last few years its been all about comfort for me rather than having fashion pains. I know that there is nothing greater like quality of the clothing, shoes I wear, but I am not one of those people anymore to be running around and finding brand names because In the end it is my comfort that is important to me. I have learned that when I was entering into my 20’s. So in the last 8 years or so its been all about comfort more than anything else.

I see some teenaged girls, and women wearing ever so high heels, and a lot of them cannot even walk in high heels and yet they still wear it because they think its cool and it makes them look good in it, to show off to friends and others who look at them and I know some of them are in pain wearing them and they still wear it like nothing is happening to them, but they do not know in the long run and in future that it can do damage to the vertebrae, back and legs. I do not know how some people can stay in heels and stand in them, dance in them and they say the love to wear heels. To me I wear very little or no heels at all. I love flats and just a small bit of a heel, but I just cannot handle high heels. The other day I was trying on shoes at a random store, and I said let me try on these big heels for a minute, lets see what the hype about it is, It took me merely 20 seconds and I already started to feel pain. I said how in the heck can people wear these for hours? So painful. I took them off and I felt so relieved. I am in for comfort and that is what should matter.

Even with the clothes and stuff. I don’t care if I buy them from big box stores, or an unknown clothing store or anything if it feels good, and the material is good, then I will buy it, but It doesn’t have to be big brand names. In the end fashion isn’t about impressing others, you shouldn’t have to impress others by proving a point or anything. It is how comfortable you see yourself with wearing whatever you want to wear and it is something that you should feel good about too. People in this world do not even have clothes and shoes to wear. We should be fortunate that we do have what we have and not complain about about not having brand name clothing, and shoes and spending thousands of dollars on clothing that is so ridiculous.

For me Comfort beats Fashion pain, and when I get older I am going to be in pain and people wonder why they are in so much pain when they get older on their legs, feet, back is because when were young we do not realize what we do when were young will affect us later on in life and its happened where I know someone who wore heels a lot and then as she got older, back problems started and leg problems. Now shes going to physiotherapy for the last 2 years. She now cannot stand heels and I do not blame her.

These fashion companies make you want to get more, and want you to always stay in the latest fashions, remember they are there to make money on you and it doesn’t matter how they do it, they do it and they always find a way to persuade the public eye, about certain things, but me I never follow the fashion trends. I do not have to buy everything that comes out, I do not have to go spend so much money where I can spend the money on more important things then having to always stay in the fashion world. No need to flaunt and impress others. Remember comfort, comfort, comfort.

You should not worry about what other people think about what kind of clothes you wear or anything. The important thing is how you see yourself, and how you feel. Yes dressing in a terrible way is not good like ripped jeans, way too baggy pants, and looking like a slob, okay that there no one should wear those when they are out, but other than that its what you feel. Comfort is key and remember your future. Save yourself from pain in the long run and be comfortable. So Fashion comfort conquers and wins!

Grocery Shopping – A Cool Story

The other day, I had gone Grocery Shopping in the meat produce section of the store and all of a sudden I was just talking to myself on cooking and finding new ways to cook chicken with different spices and herbs and sauces, and all of a sudden there were about 3 or 4 people who are women around me wondering what I was saying and they heard me talk to myself, then they started asking me questions, what do you do to cook chicken? What spices do you use? I said I use different spices and mix them together, then make my own sauce with the ingredients I buy. I said I usually cook chicken with a sweet and sour twist to it, and I make sure that I bathe my chicken in a lot of sauce, marinate it and all that. They said oh wow, that is great. They told me you must be an expert cook and you must do all the cooking in the house. I said, yes I do. I love to cook for my family and I enjoy creating new types of recipes and experimenting with flavours, spices, sauces, herbs, and more. We became instant friends and we took each others contact information and now we are in touch and share with each other our recipes, and soon we will be getting together for coffee to discuss our food preparations and more.

It is so amazing how people cross your path and especially from a grocery store, so Thank goodness I was talking to myself. I thought it was strange talking to myself while grocery shopping, but it was really cool to get my thoughts rolling and enjoying my time shopping. I love grocery shopping and I always look at prices and sales from the flyer.  They are very nice ladies and 2 of them were together shopping, the other one was just alone shopping, and we ended up having a 15-20 minute conversation by the meats about food, and everything. They love watching the food channel and they are avid cookers and love baking too. I am so happy to have found them as we share the same interests. You meet people where you least expect it, and its an ideal place to meet in a grocery store. A lot of people have asked me questions at the grocery store, but this one struck out the most. I wasn’t going to go shopping that day, but then I ended up doing so anyway, so I was glad I did.

So excited to get together with them. probably this coming week. lets see. Has it ever happened to you where you meet people in a grocery store or where you least expect it? Did you make friends with them? Do you enjoy meeting new people all the time? I was really happy with meeting them.

Another Month Has Come! Hello May! Thank you For The Birthday Wishes

Hello! Wow, Can you believe that May is here already? We are already in the 5th month of the year. Time is just flying by so quickly. As my birthday was yesterday On April 30th, and waking up to a new month, I can sure feel the difference every year. Yesterday on my birthday,  I had such a fabulous day, so many people from my facebook wished me a happy birthday, calls, text messages, e-mails, comments and so much more. During my 27th year, I have new goals, aspirations, and plans and one of them is finding that special someone in my life to settle down with, to get married, and have a future with who I can trust in and who share similar interests as me. Also I believe in my 27th year I will find employment and I will get my life back on track with that. I just have so many plans to make and I start doing so today. Time is of the essence.

Thanks again to those who wished me a happy birthday!

Love,

Excited To Be Visiting Montreal, Quebec Again

I am so excited, that I cannot hide it. I know that is a song, but My excitement to be going to Montreal later on this month is really something I cannot keep to myself. I am excited to be seeing my friends and just getting there, traveling on my favourite highway after so many months, its going to be a great getaway, short, but sweet. I am really excited to be reliving my moments on my favourite highway and especially visiting my friends, and making more memories as I go.

Today, that is what I would like to share with you all. I will still be posting on the days I go… :)

I wish everyone a wonderful February and I see that Valentines day is coming up. To those who are in relationships, or married, what will you do for your better half? Will you be going away?

Don’t worry single people, I am single too and sometimes Valentines Day makes me sad that I don’t have anyone but, thats ok, It will happen sooner or later. I am always looking at it as a glass half full. It will happen for me. I hear this all the time that someone out there is out for someone. I truly believe in that. Believe in yourself and believe in it.

2012 Is All About Change, But Positive Change with Optimistic Approach To Life.

I think 2012 is a year of change. Since a new year has come, I think the importance of starting out with happy and positivity the way we rang in the new year partying, enjoying, smiling, being fruitful, kind, being optimistic, enthusiastic and just having a great time, I think we can incorporate the same energy we had to celebrate the coming of the new year and we can use that energy throughout the year to do good things all year round and for other years to come.

Although sometimes life can be hard and there are obstacles that will come our ways, sometimes when we don’t get what we want in life, but that should not be the sabbotage of you, that should not stop you from being positive about life. I think that it all starts with a persons outlook on life and we can all be happy and do positive things in our lives to make the world a better place only if we choose to be. We can never be optimistic and positive if we always let the negativity empower us.  If we do not get what we want in life at that frame of our lives, it may happen or will happen sooner or later than you think.

It is very important that this year of 2012 to change Negativity to Positivity, to Change Pessimistic Attitude to Optimistic Attitudes, From Unhappy to Happy. Smiling and Smiles across the world will give this fantastic and incredible vibe in the world and it can be felt by millions and billions of people across the world. We can all make a difference in this world, We can all do something to benefit us and benefit others. It can be the most incredible gift you give yourself. I think its time to snap out of it. Never forget to be yourself and never forget to be who you are in the process.

Whenever you give yourself those gifts, you will always be happy. Just give it a try this year. You will see how lovely your year will turn out to be. Cheers to TWENTY TWELVE!

Now get on out there AND SMILE SMILE SMILE AND SMILE!

 

New Years Eve & Last Post of 2011!

So we have come to the last day of 2011. I must say this year went by super quickly for me. I guess from traveling so much to Montreal 32 times just this year, Going to Ottawa twice, Visiting Niagara Falls USA and CANADA, being so busy with writing, day to day life, I just didn’t realize how quick it truly went. This year I learned so much about life, learning from fellow bloggers, readers, commenters on my blog, hearing different perspectives on issues in life, so on and so forth. I thank everyone for giving me all the love, support, courage and 2011 was a year that I finally found my passion and that is to write and blog which hopefully someday with my words that come from my heart will change the world and people can be more kinder to one another, to respect one another and start 2012 with greatness instead of bad that we always hear on the news. So much has happened this year and I just cannot even begin to explain it all, but all in all, I have had a pretty great year and you know how they say, things happen for a reason.

Some friends have come and gone and some of them have stayed and I know who my true friends are. I’ve learned a valuable lesson this year to know who is fake and who is not, and also learning about so many things about life. There is so much I need to be thankful for, getting through another year, etc… What have you learned in 2011? What were some of your highlights this year? What were some of the memorable moments that you went through?

Unfortunately there were some people who past away this year and didnt live past another year, I’d like to send out my condolences and sympathies to those who have lost loved ones in their lives.

Finally, I’d like to end off 2011 with saying thank you to my readers of my blog, followers, supporters, to my family, friends, you all hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to write in 2012. Have a great happy new year 2012, all the best, May all your dreams and wishes come true and hopefully 2012 will be a beautiful year for all.

See you all next year in 2012!

Do not Drink and Drive tonight – Be safe!

LOVE ALWAYS, TALIN ORFALI
