Hopefully, you read my articles every week. If you don't, shame on you. No, I'm just kidding. The truth is: I know that you are busy, and that there are tons of articles here, on many things. I am aware that you may simply want to know which ones to read, you know...which ones of mine I think you should start with.
Well, I'll tell you. To get an overview of what this site is about, to see what is really going on, there are a few articles I'd like to suggest. These I will list below. I will also tell you a bit about them. I believe these articles are the best of the best. These I put my heart and soul into -- Not that I don't do that for every article, but I feel these are special, and dear, to me.
I'm going to let you in on something. On some days when my fingers begin to fly across the keys, I wind up in the zone. I am sure many writers and editors experience this, definitely even people in other fields--like say, entertainment. There is a place you go...after you have done all your prep work and your research. That place for me is a place of transcendence. It is a spiritual place.
It is -- I believe -- where the Spirit of whatever I'm doing, and my spirit meet.
Then I feel as though I soar, I make magic. I experience this to a great degree when I write my adult novels which are available many places online. All too soon however, I must come down. It is inevitable. Such is life. However, in order to share with you the articles where this happened to me, I have listed them below:
Accessories and How They Enhance - Accessories are fun, beautiful, and can instantly update one's look or an outfit. They can also cause one to appear pulled together. See how! Simply click on the words 'Ethnic Beauty Site' (above) then on the left of your screen you'll see a list of subjects. Click on Fashion & Accessories then click on All About Accessories.
The Beauty of Faith - Are you trying to hang on, to make it, and you harbor questions, some that may even remain unanswered? Then in our For The Soul section, take a look. See how the beauty of Faith might make a difference in your life.
The Changing Face of Beauty - Millions of ethnic people desire to see images that look like them. That shouldn't be surprising -- however, this article, in Defining Ethnic Beauty, will explain how seeing an image similar to your own every so often is important.
Fabulous Beyond Forty - There once was a time when women approaching the age of thirty began to balk. Why? Because the big 4 0 was not long after. Now days though, we don't succumb to that notion. Pop over to the 4 Women Over 40 category to find out why.
The Magic of An Ethnic Beauty - The fall season, leading into the holidays is mystical, a magical time. In the Defining Ethnic Beauty section see the reasons why you too have been endued with power and magic!
Seeking The Sacred - Spending quality time by one's self, no matter how busy she is, can be therapeutic. This vital time allows one to collect her thoughts, among other things. In our For the Soul section, read on to find out how you can make this work for you.
What Does 'Ethnic' Really Mean? - Someone called you ethnic. Since the word conjures many images, should you become offended? You may even wonder what that person was really trying to say. Well, let's see...in the Defining Ethnic Beauty section.
Where Does Beauty Begin? - Does beauty start at conception or after? Does it belong to a select few, the special people? In the Defining Ethnic Beauty section you can read on to find out where beauty has its origins.
Who Needs Shapewear? - Do you have an outfit that you'd like to wear to an upcoming affair, but you can't zip it? Does your waist need whittling, or does your once-fabulous bottom now need re-molding? Then why not pop over to our Undergarments section. There you'll find lots of interesting information on figure-flattering foundation pieces.
Your Body Is Your Temple - A person's body, the place where their spirit resides, is their temple. We always hear variations on that theme, but really, what does that phrase mean? Take a look, in our For The Soul category.
Ethnic beauties and others, I only ask one thing. That you contact me after you've begun reading. You can do so in The Ethnic Beauty Forum. To sign up is fast and free. Or email me, if you can, or if you so desire. Drop me a quick line. You can easily do so by looking to the right of your screen. See the light bulb, and the envelope in the circle? Click on either. Then tell me if you too felt the magic. I would so appreciate it, since -- whenever I begin an article, I have you the reader in mind.
Be blessed my darlings...and enjoy!
