Falling in Love Key:  Dating Yourself.  If you don’t want to date yourself…how do you expect anyone else to want to?  So for the next few weeks every time you leave the house you’re going on a fabulous date.  With yourself.  I don’t care if you’re going out to pump gas.  It’s the best pumping you’ve ever gotten.  I know…naughty metaphor.  Make everything you do a fun, kick ass sassy date, Bitch!  Yeah…it’s winter.   Yeah…it’s cold.  Yeah…sometimes you just want to cuddle up with your lap top.  I get it and want to do that too.  You have to get out though and play.  Even after a long day of work.  Looking for someone to love besides yourself?  Get out and play, then!

  1. Get out of the house.  If you’re healing from a break up, anywhere will do.  If you’re feeling more adventurous, join a club, take a class, search the local entertainment papers for something, anything to do!
  2. Step out in style.  Make the effort to look your best.  Fave outfit, fun make-up, hot shoes and accessories.
  3. Own your walk.  When you walk into a room, store, anywhere, enter with confidence.  Make up something to say that makes you feel good:  “Hope you all are ready.  Cuz’ here I come!”
  4. Ooze happiness.  When you’re getting ready to “step out in style,” play your favorite music, take a few minutes to slow down and get excited about discovering and meeting new people.
  5. Be aware of your body language.  Don’t slouch.  Hold your head up high.  Stand up straight.  LOOK lively.
  6. Try, if you’re up to it, to get a man’s attention with your smile.  Or make eye contact then give him the gift of a dazzling smile from hot little you.
  7. Spark spontaneous conversation.  Be warm, open and friendly.
  8. Make a man feel good.  Feel important.  With sincerity!
  9. Bitch it Up and make this a one day a week affair with a wonderful girlfriend.
  10. Slow down and savor touch.  If you’re out shopping, seek out different textures and materials.  Caress the material with your fingertips.  Enjoy the touch.  Purchase only that which feels incredible on your beautiful skin.  Your skin is so worth it!
  11. Give yourself flowers at least ONCE during these weeks.
  12. No expectations.  Don’t over think it.   Enjoy being in the moment!

It Just Sucks You In And You Know It!

It just sucks you in and you know it.  After a few minutes you start getting edgy.  You want to pick up the phone and get what you want!  The next thing you know 30 minutes have gone by in your very busy life.  You sigh, get up and keep going on.  Until the next time you see it.

The Wen Hair Care commercial.

Sucks me in every time!  One time a girlfriend, Suzana and I, were on a girls’ overnight and we stayed in the hotel room watching that darn commercial.  Both of us mesmerized by the hair transformations.  Both of us talking about how much we wanted to try it.  Blissfully wishing for THAT kind of hair.  So finally, as a Christmas present to myself, I bought the introductory kit.  Here’s what I learned:

The Good:

  1.  I got the Almond Mint…which really does smell wonderful!
  2.  I loved how the mint made my scalp tingle.
  3.  I loved the extra pampering time it took.  The directions wanted you to work the product into your hair throughout the shower.
  4.  I thought the kit itself, for $29 + change was a good value.  You get to try a lot of things (what girl doesn’t love that!)  and the comb is cool.

The Bad:

  1. You have no idea how bummed I was when Wen didn’t work on my hair!  For those of you who have seen my Facebook photo, you know I have A LOT of hair.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bitch-Lifestyle/205875411841  My hair was done by a stylist for that photo because my hair is THE definition of curly, frizzy, thick and unruly hair.  I used Wen exactly as the directions said.  For 2 weeks.  I had to stop because my hair kept getting frizzier.  Not good with my wild hair.
  2. You have to use a lot of product each time you use it.  Even if you have short hair you have to separate your hair into 4 sections and then use 3-5 pumps of cleanser in each section.
  3. In order to get the starter kit, you have to sign up to be on their “membership renewal program.”  Which means they have your credit card number and send you more every few months for a discounted price.  In order to cancel, you have to call them.  Which means you’re going to have to deal with the hard sell by an associate when you do.  Unless of course, you’re a Sassy Bitch.  😉

You know what feels just like Wen, minus the tingle in drugstores?  TRESemme’ conditioner.  I use that all the time and love it.  Now…and into the future I’m going to take the pampering aspect of Wen and use it when I’m conditioning my hair.  Work the product into the hair and massage.  So really, I got something cool when I ordered Wen.  A new way to slow down and enjoy myself in the shower.  Thank you, Wen!  Love, Goddess

Annoying Thing Men Do Until You Realize Why They Do It

Careful of the Pussy’s hiss!  From the fab blog:  Iva Messy   http://www.ivamessy.com/2009/07/men-and-women-annoying-habits.html

There’s something that men do that can be SO annoying to us women.  It’s when we, as women, are talking about one of our dearest passions, and a man starts giving us crap and poking fun at us about it.  So what’s that all about, Bitch?

Attention.

They like you.  They want attention from you.  Unfortunately, they’re going about it the wrong way.  A lot of us women don’t really dig that.   It can get our panties in a bunch.  Here we are, all excited about our passion, and he’s dissing us, teasing us and we just want to smack him.   So what do we do about this, Sassy Bitches?

Play our cute, curvaceous butts off about it!  We take our studies from “You’ve Been Sassed,” http://bitchlifestyle.com/2012/01/youve-been-sassed/  and Bitch it up.     We not only call them on their crap and use their own words to do it, we do it all sassy and playful.  Why?  Because you know you can play his own “game” (more on that in a bit) *** and relish the fun challenge he’s presenting you with.  Because remember, men love a challenge.  Can he handle the challenge of hot little you?  (God…he hopes so!)  An example from my life today:

My friend J calls me.  We have things to discuss regarding a project we’re working on together.  All goes well and we end the phone conversation.  We hang up.  He IMMEDIATELY calls again.  I pick up.  Here is part of our conversation:

J:  Sharon, I was just calling you to tell you “Go Giants!”

Me:  Now you know the only reason you’re telling me that is to push my buttons.  Football is one of my passions.  (He had started the day before on me.  This time using the Ravens.  And I knew he was calling me back to give me crap about my deep passion for Patriots football)

J:  Don’t be so sensitive, Sharon.  It’s just an opinion I have.  Football isn’t a really important thing.

Me:  Oh no.  (really playfully)  Like for me I don’t understand why people meditate.  I think it’s for people with way too much time on their hands.  Just my opinion.

J got irritated.  Score a big one for the Sassy Bitch.  A few more words and then the conversation changed.  Why?  J is really into meditation.  I like it too.  The point is, HE has this passion for meditation and I used that to call him on his crap.  Used his own words against him.  So playfully fun, too.  Bitch won because he DROPPED it.

So why wasn’t I mad?  No reason to be.  This is how guys talk to each other.  You ever notice how much crap they give each other?  They respect the person who gives it back to them and don’t lie down and take it!   So it actually is a playful game *** they are “playing” with you and you are just  “playing” back.  You just can’t let it piss you off (kick box it out!)  and play back.  That is the sort of play they understand.  Got it?

Now get in there and play back with those scoundrels who are just craving your attention.  Sassy wink!   Love, Goddess

Glamorous You Harnessing Your Super Natural Force

Glamorous Audrey Hepburn image from I Paintings for Sale

Glamorous you.  How does this harness your super natural force?  The word  “glamour” originates from the ancient term necromancy-the harnessing of supernatural force.  Yeah…hot!  And at your fingertips.  Any woman can turn her glamour on.  Whenever she wants to.

“Enjoy the fact that you’re a woman and men will enjoy it too.”  Marilyn Monroe.

I love that quote!  So today at Bitch University I’m going to give you glamorous tips from some of the most magnetic women that ever lived.  Why do this?  Because it keeps away The Drama Queen Brat.  The Drama Queen Brat craves attention.  When she doesn’t get it she may start to do obnoxious things.  Like text a guy 40 times a day or moan about all she doesn’t have and drain the energy of all those around her.  By giving attention to things that make you feel beautiful and playful, she is getting attention.  A part of you wants attention and by enjoying being a woman and playing with glamour, you get attention in a constructive, fun way!   Do one a day.  Or two.  As many as you want.  Add a touch of glamour a day and see how it makes you feel.  This is taking power away from your Brat.   This will help harness that supernatural force deep inside you.  The Strong, Sexy, Confident Bitch.

  1. Gwen Stefani loves watching old movies.  She’ll see something she loves-like a leopard print and decide to wear it the next day.  Add a little leopard print to your life.  Scarf, shoes, a hot skirt.
  2. Sophia Loren loves pasta.  Savor a bowl no guilt like she does.
  3. Love your body like Mae West did.  “I never worry about diets.  The only carrots I’m interested in are the number in a diamond.”
  4. Create your own fashion trademark. Something that you love to consistently wear.  Is it smokey eyes?  Flowers always in your home?  The way you wear your hair?  A blingy ring?
  5. Laughing at yourself makes you very adorable and charming.
  6. Enjoy your voice.  Speak clearly and take your time.  This draws people in.
  7. Take the time to groom your eyebrows.  Fill them in and brush them.  They frame your eyes-the mirrors to your soul!
  8. Red lipstick has been a quick way to glamour forever!  Cleopatra used red lipstick to lure Caesar.  Find your perfect shade and work it.
  9. Brush glitter on your cleavage.
  10. Wear only your favorite perfume to bed.
  11. Put a huge bouquet of the most glamorous flowers by your bed.
  12. Movie star Greer Garson used to rinse her hair in champagne.  She would not rinse it out.  This made her feel incredibly pampered.
  13. Try on the absolute sexiest heels you can find.  Manolos, Louboutins.  Admire your legs in the shoes in a mirror.
  14. Make your entrance.  Even in the grocery store.  Think up a fun little thing to say in your mind…like a mantra as you enter.  “I’m the sexiest woman on the planet.”  Practice everywhere.
  15. Note your posture.  Walk tall and don’t slouch.  Walk with purpose or a with a subtle, sensual shift of your hips.  Slow down.  Enjoy walking.
  16. The next time you’re at a restaurant, order the sexiest, naughtiest, glamorous sounding cocktail and savor it.
  17. Turn your bedroom into a boudoir.  Google for tips.

Please share your glamour ideas on here and on our Bitch Lifestyle Facebook!   Get in there and play!  Class dismissed.  Love, Goddess
