Read TGLife.com for TG information

Hello Ladies,

I wanted you to know about a great web site,that Gina Lance started recently….Gina was the previous owner of the beautiful all color magazine called, GirlTalk. It had lovely photos and was in great taste, and was very expensive to produce. Gina, now has put her energy into a fun, informative web site, which is geared for CD’s but TS girls enjoy this site also. I have been writing articles for Gina, and this gal knows her business. Check out her soon to be released book, “Getting Dressed”. You can find her at: http://www.tglife.com

Enjoy!

In Your Easter Bonnet ~ Do You Remember That Song?

Easter is here, and the warmer weather has many of us, pulling off those winter fabrics, boots and sweaters! Yes, Easter Day, has been “the rule” in fashion…for bringing out your lighter, brighter clothing and shoes. Of course, this old rule is not written in stone today. However, you can use it as a guide line for seasonal/wardrobe change.

Here are the areas, I change at Easter:

1. I put away my darker hosiery…. such as taupe, coffee-bean, navy, and the “brown” colors….and I switch into lighter hosiery, such as buff,  nude,  light beige, and suntan. Also, bring out your open toe shoes, and sandals in your lighter shades….white, cream, wheat, etc. And, of course…get a fabulous straw handbag, a fabric bag, or a wheat leather bag.  I stay away from all white shoes and all white handbags. A wheat color shoe and bag is always safe, to wear with your lighter spring colors and fabrics.

For “Casual” day wear, switch to a pair of shorter… “Capri” jeans, in a lighter color. If you have great legs, try light colored mid-thigh jean shorts in light wash blue, beige, white, or even light pastels…such as pink. Or, a lighter color/fabric skirt.   Protect your eyes from the sun; eyedoctors now report the sun burns your eyes as much as it burns your skin! And, don’t forget your nails and toe-nails by changing into colors such as a: Coral, Pink, French Tips or my favorite the “American Tip”. Treat yourself to a mani and pedi.

Not ready for a swim suit? Select a long sarong, wrap it around your waist and wear over a swim suit or shorts. A straw hat, sun-glasses, sarong, and light colored nails, toes and lips…and you’re ready to go to the beach, or BBQ or picnic.

 As I gaze upon all the new colors blooming this time of year in California; the blooming fruit trees and colorful bulbs coming out of the ground, I am always inspired to “lighten” up my wardrobe and makeup. I like to pack away those black, brown boots, closed toe shoes, leather shoes, winter sweaters, leather jackets and heavy fabric slacks, skirts, and coats. .

 For evening, select a light weight coat, in a lighter color. The new Trench Coats and Rain Coats, are really cute in many colors this year. (I always carry, my winter coat, in the trunk of my car, for those late cold winter nights in San Francisco). But, for day…break out! Try the Sally Hanson Spray for Legs for any “farmers tan”.  It washes off immediately in the shower; or if your full time– try a lasting tan gel or spray. A beard thinner, works well for removing SOME of the hair on your arms and legs, if your a CD.  Lets don’t forget our face, which endured the winter wind and cold. Select a mild peel, to remove all the winter months of dead, gray skin.  And, presto…you’re ready for summer!

Don’t forget your Sun Block! And, get a “higher quality” pair if sun glasses, to protect your eyes from sunburn. Gosh, all this “fun in the sun” makes me thiristy for a pink margarita!

Getting Your Feet Ready For Summer Shoes!

Hello from Denae.

I wanted to remind you, it’s time to think about your feet, which have been through a hard winter. Sally Hanson, has many tools, for very little investment, which will help you get the dead skin off your heels, and toes. Be careful,  and don’t use the tool —which has a shart razor,  it is best to purchase the tool, which looks like, your grating cheese!

 Soak your feet in a bath or shower, then dry them with a towel and apply lotion to them.  Place a towel under your feet. Use your tool, to scrap off the dead skin. You will be shocked at what you find in the towel! It looks like sand, lots of sand. Do, this several times.

 Also, clip your toenails, and select a beautiful, spring color. Then, wear some fabulous open toe shoes and feel confident, free, and beautiful!

Have fun in the sun, but remember to wear your sun screen.

Hugs,

Denae

Try The New Body Lotions, With Color Glow!

Hello ladies, Denae here for another tip. Today, I was shopping in Walgreens for a great body lotion. My favorite sales lady, who always greets me…with the newest and best products…suggested I try Jergens Lotion with Color and Glow…to give you some “tan” that washes off in the shower. You can “layer” it also, for a deeper color. For you, who are light/fair…and can’t get in the sun…this is a great tip for you.

Also, try….Sally Hansen’s leg spray…on your chest and arms….if you have a “guys” arm and collar tan line. Again, it will wash off in the shower! Or, if you just want a much deeper than, then try these products. They do not turn orange and again…they both wash off, in the shower. And, don’t forget to get a pedicure for those new summer shoes! Here in Santa Cruz, CA….we are right on the beach, and having a fun summer look, is part of…”Fun In The Sun”. All my best,

Inexpensive Breast Forms

Hello Jennifer, this is Denae. Thank you for your question, regarding…how much to spend on silicon breast forms.

There are many expensive breast forms, for $300.00 up!

However, I suggest the $40.00 a pair Pals with Nipples.

Just Goggle Pals Breast Forms, they look the same and you can actually glue and even cut the form, and Silicon will not be dripping out. Especially, to experiment with different sizes, or for different looks, you can try on a C or D!

Save your money, for a good wig!

Enjoy!
