Thinkin’ ’bout ICE CREAM

Dolce & Gabbana Gelato Print Clothing and Purse

Forget Myers-Briggs. How we eat our ice cream may be a personality indicator.

Maybe you are a hard-line cone person, or a no-exceptions cup person. Or maybe you can’t eat ice cream unless it’s in a milkshake or a sundae. Whatever your delivery method, a recent study from Baskin-Robbins claims it aligns with certain personality traits. The company teamed with Juliet A. Boghossian, a behavioral food expert, and found these traits.

If you prefer a cone, you are an optimist and a positive thinker. But that’s not all — the type of cone you choose says even more. People who favor sugar cones are “considered the life of the party and are funny, edgy and performers,” while those who prefer waffle cones “tend to be the host of the party, more traditional and nurturing caregivers.”

If you choose a cup, you’re a realist. Cup users are generally “analytical types who are rational thinkers.” They “are responsible, dutiful, family oriented and hardworking.”

If you like your ice cream in sandwich form, you’re an eccentric. People who love ice cream sandwiches “tend to have both strong introvert and extrovert tendencies, and they are known to be artistic, impulsive and idealistic.”

If you need toppings on a sundae, you’re ambitious. People who prefer the full sundae are “open, passionate, motivated … and loyalists who take calculated risks.”

If you just want to eat ice cream out of the carton, you’re practical. People who don’t like to fuss about an additional delivery method tend to be “resourceful, dependent, pragmatic, an introvert — and are often strong leaders.”

If you like eating your ice cream with a straw, you’re a free spirit. People who eat ice cream in milkshake form “are young at heart, fearless, athletic and more likely to take impulsive risks.”

So what does it mean when dievca likes her Ice Cream in a Fish with toppings?

Photoshoot…

dievca has learned that her make-up technique just needed some tweaking and you need to build it up for photos because you lose 50%.  she also learned that her face is not model material – but it is kind and children love it. (Or maybe that is just her personality coming out — boys, of all ages, tend to love dievca)

dievca also learned that you want your face to be the largest item for the camera, so you don’t push your pelvis forward or stick you hip out to the camera.  (she does this all the time…)

dievca learned that good friends giggling with you makes the process easier. And the people watching you appreciate and smile when they know you are having fun. Taking photos with friends in them are more natural.

dievca learned that her friend is a really good make-up artist and photographer.

dievca learned that she…is beautiful.

(A lot of learning going on)

Tattoo Lingerie

In CA, dievca ran into a number of people (Men and Women) of a certain age (late 20’s to mid 30’s) with tattoos.  Not just one tattoo on the hip or back — the ones that covered arms and legs +. And they loved them, wanted to talk about them, tell how much or how little pain there was in the process. (Is this a form of needle play?)

dievca felt a little weird, looking at the pieces up close and it dawned on her that most of her age group doesn’t have tattoos or they have a shamrock on their ankle.  Is it an age thing? A CA thing? dievca doesn’t know~

If you are not into getting a tattoo, you can always do tattoo lingerie:

But the sets of tattoo lingerie dievca really liked were the true tattoos covering mastectomy scars:

Not breaking Fashion rules: finally understanding why

There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In the early 1900s, the rule about only wearing white between Memorial Day and Labor Day was started according to the vacationing schedule of the elite, when there “was a dress code for practically every occasion.” Those who could afford it would leave their homes behind and spend months at the sea or in the mountains, where they had a completely different type of wardrobe, including the light, bright white pieces most associated with the summer months. When those fun-loving summer days were over, the white clothes were packed away and the people went back to their regular lives, having escaped the oppressive heat between the end of May and early September. Those white clothes that they loved during the summer months had no place in their “real life” wardrobes, so the cutoff for white clothing became Labor Day.

Nowadays, you may have started wearing white on the first 90F (32 C) day of year or earlier.

dievca thought she still avoided wearing white until after Memorial Day because it was the “rule”, but she finally realized that she uses white sparingly—period, because….its New York City.

Can you imagine how dirty this Helmut Lang Leather Slip Dress would get?

And that is the true reason dievca doesn’t really break the “white” rule.

Happy Memorial Day! (and wear white for dievca)

Imagine her surprise when she put on her new backpack (note: a pen exploded in the orange backpack…) for the morning ride and was told that her new eyeglass frame color matched the backpack trim perfectly…
