I love wearing French Cuffed shirts; not only because they are stylish but mainly because they allow me to wear one of the few accessories that a man can wear: cuff links. I gave away most of the French cuffed shirts in the last 10 lbs that I gained, I kept a couple of them - even these two that I kept need to be retired soon. i must hold on to them (till I find replacements) so I can wear my new cuff link acquisitions. I bought three pairs on my last trip to Malaysia.
One pair has the form of a Mastiff. One is in the form of a Dalmatian, The last pair - which I wore today is in the form of a wolf. I must say that I picked it out because It reminded me of the dire wolves of House Stark in the Game of Thrones.
Oh - you can see that in this picture three of my bracelets are peeping out of the sleeves of my shirt. The blue one is made of blue lace agate which helps in developing skills of tact when communicating. The green one is made of aventurine: the crystal for good luck in games of chance and also aids people in positions of leadership. Lastly, the yellow faceted gems are actually yellow sapphire which can lead the wearer to prosperity.
What accessories were you wearing today? Did they make you feel beautiful the same way these cuff links made me think that I'm a Casanova?
They say life begins at 40. They also say that 40 is the new 30. So does this mean that I have to wait till I'm 50 for my life to begin? To be honest - I don't really understand how one can wait till they're four decades old to live a life. On my part - I know I have lived a good life. Which is why forty or not - I intend to continue to enjoy. What's that French word again? Ah Joie de Vivre!
Have I shared with y'all that I lost a lot of weight? I have lost over 10 lbs which translated to four inches reduction around my waist and i dropped one full clothes size. This has lead to buying skinny pants. The pair I'm wearing in my pic is bright blue. I got it from Bench. The top is from C2 (Colezione) which got a lot of compliments from the office,
Can I just say that apart from being 40 - I'm actually happier that I'm just two inches away from having my waistline back when I was in my 20s? I will write about my secret to the weight loss on another post.
For now dear readers - just celebrate with me as I look forward to the next 40 years of my life.
