Do you believe in manifestation? (Mosquito in my Cloudberry Ikea Jam)

February 19, 2017 under Weird, What to Avoid

cloudberry jam in ikea with a mosquito in itDo you believe it that if you think of something negative happening to you, it will? I had a real manifestation experience in Ikea a few years ago when I went to buy a cloudberry jam.

In my life I got to see exactly one cloud berry, a single little berry in the middle of a northern forest. You can imagine, I was excited about the jam.

As I walked up to the cash register, I asked the lady there if this jam contains any mosquitoes. She looked at me as if I am out of my mind and told me that there are no mosquitoes.

Guess what, half way through the yummy jar, there it was – a big fat mosquito!

I took the jar back to Ikea and to the return area and told the lady that I specifically asked if there were mosquitoes and I’ve been told that there are none there.

To my surprise the customer service woman was completely not interested why there is a mosquito in the jar, but she was very much keep on how I knew in advance to ask about mosquitoes specifically.

Well, I got my $5 back. I don’t ask them about mosquitoes anymore and I continue buying that cloudberry jam, but so far they don’t have any unusual ingredients to them.

So my readers, please tell me, have I manifested a mosquito?

 

A story of how this TV host busted a pretense healer

November 14, 2016 under Weird, What to Avoid

Someone forwarded me a link to this show about uncovering scams and swindles. On one hand I want to share this just because I think it is important to be aware that such things exist, but on another hand the host there wears such nice burgundy pantyhose. In general, almost in every one of her episodes she has some kind of tights on.

In this case there is a so called alternative healer who charges a lot of money for his sessions and at the same time sexually harasses his younger female visitors while at it. A woman who reported this pervert said that he gave her tea to drink during the visit and it made her almost pass out, so she couldn’t resist or even comprehend what’s going on.

kristina-elena-lebed-2-wearing-burgundy-pantyhoseLet me make it clear, this scam artist shouldn’t even be called a healer, prior to that they send an undercover patient with a real medical problem and the guy only took her money, telling her that she is actually fine.

This TV show host, Elena Kristina Lebed went to investigate it undercover and ended up with her skirt on her head by the end. Before she went in for a visit, she drank a neutralizing suspension that is meant to cancel out of the effects of most substances that she could be drugged with.
kristina-elena-lebed-3-wearing-burgundy-pantyhoseKristina came in saying that she hasn’t been feeling well and the healer right away told her that she has some horrible health issues that need some work. He said that the problem is in her genital chakra and asked how often she engages in sexual intercourse and even in what positions.

He said that there is an energy block and he needs to open the chakra. However, Kristina is too tense and it is hard to break through her aura, so he gave her some tea. Then some more tea again after he touched her knee. Kristina knew what the tea was for, even though the suspension she drank helped her not to get drowsy, but she pretended as if she is passing out on the couch.

kristina-elena-lebed-1-wearing-burgundy-pantyhoseThis scam artist reached for the top of her pantyhose and at that point she screamed out and the film crew broke in, pulling him off her with his pants still down. When questioned about what he is doing like this, he said that this is an alternative form of treatment. Finally, Kristina asked him what it was that he was planning to treat inside of her pantyhose and he got all quiet. One more pervert was out of practice.

Let me know your thoughts. Would you want to hear more stories from this show?

Pantyhose saves me from a wardrobe malfunction

February 11, 2016 under What to Avoid

gabriella bella backseam cuban heelI wanted to share a story about how wearing pantyhose under pants actually saved me from an uncomfortable situation.

Last week I went to a spa in Banff, a city in the Rocky Mountains. I wore a pair of my beige backseam pantyhose underneath for warmth. At some point I was even wondering if I should or not, but I did it anyway and put a pair of thick warm socks over it.

When I got to the spa, I realized that my zipper got jammed and I had a few men and women take turns trying to open it without success. At that point when I managed to pull out my foot, I could only put it back inside without a sock.

If I wouldn’t have pantyhose underneath, I’d have to go home with bare feet in these boots and the thought of that makes me cringe. Wearing pantyhose that day saved me from having to run out without a sock in winter.

Svetlana Volnova, Ukrainian fashion star, falls victim to a scam

January 17, 2016 under Famous, What to Avoid

Svetlana Volnova in black pantyhose geting out of a carDespite her bimbo looks, Svetlana Volnova actually has a programming degree. Somehow this didn’t help her to exercise some logic when she fell victim to a scammer while she was herself trying to avoid paying customs fees for importing her car.

She bought a car in United States to save some money. But when she brought it to Ukraine, turned out that the duties on that car were as much as what she paid for it.

The car was 30,000 USD when she bought it US and the same car would cost 84,000 USD.

So to avoid those customs fees, she got someone who promised her to arrange so she won’t pay. Of course, that was a scammer who simply just took her money – $9,000 USD.

Customs followed up by taking away her car and presenting her with a fine of $8,000. Eventually she managed to get it all settled, but it was a lesson for her.

My Challenges with Nutrition

July 28, 2015 under What to Avoid

Alice in Wonderland over knee socksHow many of you actually wonder if your diet is balanced? Recently I was surprised to find out that Health Canada covers consultations with nutritionists. I got a phone call from a nice lady who answered my questions and sent me some information in the mail.

So I tracked my intake for a few days and to my surprise I realized that I am eating enough of everything, except for grains. I only manage to eat about half the grain products (bread, rice, etc.) of what I actually require.

This makes me wonder why this is important. I used to think that eating less bread was a good thing, but now I am not so sure. If anybody can explain to me why we need grain products to begin with, IРІР‚в„ўd be happy to know.

P.S. Contrary to the image here for illustration, I wanted to say that I actually have complete apathy for sugar. I enjoy a little bit of good cake at celebrations and an odd chocolate truffle with tea, but sweets have never been of much interest to me.

Ankle socks – nerdy or trendy?

March 27, 2015 under What to Avoid

short socks and heels, nylonOn my trip to Las Vegas I decided one day to wear cropped pants and matching nylon socks. In general, short socks like that seemed to be popular at least a year ago, especially among Asians. I also saw TopShop mannequins dressed like that, showing off their nylon socks.

However, I’ve seen also people on Facebook look down at women who wear their pants above the socks and let the sock show like this. I assume that traditionally to see the top of the sock would only be appropriate for children.

So let’s say that these socks served their purpose and saved my feet from blisters, but do you think they looked good? I would be curious to hear your opinion.

In case you are wondering about the brand, these were by Fiore from a few years back and they are no longer produced.

The sad side of pet stores

March 18, 2015 under What to Avoid

I understand that this is not a stockings topic, but I really felt that I need to share my recent experience with you. I love animals and from time to time I go to a pet store just to look and admire them.

Yesterday I went to Pet Smart and stopped by the guinea pig cage to watch how they play. Right away I noticed that one of them had some kind of crusty build up around the eyes and as I continued watching, the animal even took a few wipes at its nose with the paw just like we do when we have a cold.

I walked up to the staff and told them that there is a sick guinea pig in the cage. They even sent a person in charge of the guinea pigs to me to hear my concern. She said that the animals all came in together in one batch (hence this is why to my big surprise they haven’t separated them from the sick one) and there is a veterinarian coming tomorrow.

But as we continued talking, I realized that she is pointing at a different guinea pig. The one that she was saying is sick had some redness around the eye. She totally missed the other animal that had crusty eyes and a runny nose.

These guinea pigs were still for sale and mixed in with healthy looking others. They told me that they will treat them only if they show symptoms. Thus, think about it, you can buy a good looking animal that already was exposed to an infection and only discover this a few days later. Once you take it home, I doubt you’ll be able to prove much.

Please take this into consideration when getting a pet. I only saw this kind of stuff on television and now after I’ve been faced with it first hand, I feel very upset.

#1 Pantyhose Pet Peeve – Sagging

January 15, 2014 under What to Avoid

These are photos from some Russian concert with promo girls in short outfits dancing to the music.  Most likely the weather was so cold that they needed to keep their jackets on and wear pantyhose so they don’t freeze.

But do you notice that one of the girls (the one in the orange red jacket) is having problems with her pantyhose falling below her skirt?  Uncomfortable and embarrassing.

The blondie model was smarter, she put on control top pantyhose that usually stays up better.  However her hemline failed to cover the lines, thus taking away from her glamorous look.

The best way to avoid two of the above scenarios is to get quality grands that are sheer to waist and elastic.  If it is design right and has a proper fit and waistband, it should not sag or drop like that.

Romanian Singer Inna in a Nylon Bodysuit

October 12, 2013 under Famous, What to Avoid

inna singer in nylon bodysuit 2 inna singer in nylon bodysuit 3

inna singer in nylon bodysuit 4I love Inna’s music and sometimes I listen to her disco tunes.  Inna is a Romanian singer who seems to please people with her voice, but now decided to please some nylon connoisseurs with her bodysuit.  Encased in this pantyhose-like sheer outfit, she even managed to flash her nipple a couple of times at Summer festival in Belgium, 2010.

inna singer in nylon bodysuitI can understand that it’s hard to keep the nylon bodysuit outfit from shifting while dancing on those stiletto heels, but what’s up with the thong that seems to have quite rough seams?  Either seamless fabric or maybe an additional layer of skin tone nylon under her outfit would do the trick to cover those parts. I would also love it if her bodysuit would cover her feet too.

But either way, she did a good job performing her songs Hot and Deja Vu despite her controversial nylon bodysuit and all the nerves prior to the show.  Perhaps with a body like that she is allowed to wear such nylon outfits!  Romania proves once again to be a very sexually open-minded place.
