A Letter To Men by Christina Hendricks

I think Christina Hendricks is BEAUTIFUL. And SEXY. And if you watch mad men, you'll agree with me.

I love her so much so her name is one of the 100 lists of things that I google every morning.

This is a letter to men by Christina Hendricks. Taken From Esquire magazine website.

We love your body.
If we’re in love with you, we love your body. Your potbelly, everything. Even if you’re insecure about something, we love your body. You feel like you’re not this or that? We love your body. We embrace everything. Because it’s you.

Speaking of your body, you don’t understand the power of your own smell. Any woman who is currently with a man is with him partly because she loves the way he smells. And if we haven’t smelled you for a day or two and then we suddenly are within inches of you, we swoon. We get light-headed. It’s intoxicating. It’s heady.

We remember forever what you say about the bodies of other women. When you mention in passing that a certain woman is attractive — could be someone in the office, a woman on the
street, a celebrity, any woman in the world, really — your comment goes into a steel box and it stays there forever. We will file the comment under “Women He Finds Attractive.” It’s not about
whether or not we approve of the comment. It’s about learning what you think is sexy and how we might be able to convey it. It’s about keeping our man by knowing what he likes.

We also remember everything you say about our bodies, be it good or bad. Doesn’t matter if it’s a compliment. Could be just a comment. Those things you say are stored away in the steel
box, and we remember these things verbatim. We remember what you were wearing and the street corner you were standing on when you said it.

Never complain about our friends — even if we do. No matter how many times we say a friend of ours is driving us crazy, you are not to pile on. Not because it offends us. But because it adds to the weight that we carry around about her.

Remember what we like. When I first started dating my husband, I had this weird fascination with the circus and clowns and old carnival things and sideshow freaks and all that. About a month after we started dating, he bought me this amazing black-and-white photo book on the circus in the 1930s, and I started sobbing. Which freaked him out. I thought, Oh, my God, I mentioned this three or four weeks ago and talked about it briefly, but he was really listening to me. And he actually went out and researched and found this thing for me. It was amazing.

We want you to order Scotch. It’s the most impressive drink order. It’s classic. It’s sexy. Such a rich color. The glass, the smell. It’s not watered down with fruit juice. It’s Scotch. And you ordered it.

Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, “Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?” It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it.

No shorts that go below the knee. The ones almost like capri pants, the ones that hover somewhere between the kneecap and the calf? Enough with those shorts. They are the most embarrassing pants in the world. They should never be worn. No woman likes those.

Also, no tank tops. In public at least. A tank top is underwear. You’re walking around in your underwear. Too much.

No man should be on Facebook. It’s an invasion of everyone’s privacy. I really cannot stand it.

You don’t know this, but when we come back from a date, we feel awkward about that transition from our cute outfit into sexy lingerie. We don’t know how to do this gracefully. It’s embarrassing. We have to find a way to slip into another room, put on the outfit as if it all happened very easily, and then come out and it’s: Look at me! Look at the sexy thing I’ve done! For you, it’s the blink of an eye. It’s all very embarrassing. Just so you know.

Panties is a wonderful word. When did you stop saying “panties”? It’s sexy. It’s girlie. It’s naughty. Say it more.

About ogling: The men who look, they really look. It doesn’t insult us. It doesn’t faze us, really. It’s just — well, it’s a little infantile. Which is ironic, isn’t it? The men who constantly stare at our breasts are never the men we’re attracted to.

There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance. It’s an underused word. It’s a very special word. “You are radiant.” Also, enchanting, smoldering, intoxicating, charming, fetching.

Marriage changes very little. The only things that will get a married man laid that won’t get a single man laid are adultery and whores. Intelligence and humor (and your smell) are what get you laid. That’s what got you laid when you were single. That’s what gets you laid when you’re married. Everything still works in marriage: especially intelligence and humor. Because the sexiest thing is to know you.

Weekly diary "Lets be grateful, courageous and stop the complaining already".

My typical McDonald breakfast (Cappuccino, Orange juice and Apple pie)

One thing I learn this week =
Studies show That we cant be anxious and grateful at the same time.
So the more grateful we are in our everyday life, the less anxious we are, hence so the happier our lifes are!

This week favourite motto =
Life expands or shrinks in proportion of one's courage.
So lets all be courageous people :)

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. A Lincoln.
Its a beautiful way of saying always look at life half full rather than falf empty.

Highlight of this week =
Watching season 3 of mad men.
Some tv shows lost its charm/good story over seasons. Not mad men. Its just getting better and better over time (I feel like saying 'like wine') :)
Watching 2010 Tony awards in foxtel.
My fav is the memphis short performance and all the nominee doing their dance numbers. I love broadway!!!

This week I eat =

There is a japanese restaurant 'maki maki' just opened near my apartment, and all the sushi rolls are 50% off for 3 weeks or so. and i ate there almost everyday:) I mean its so cheap, and i love sushi rolls, they are so healthy. and theirs are fresh and delicious too.

Beauty buys of the week =

Top (left to right) = 'The Body Shop' Milk bath powder, 'In Essence' In Love massage oil, 'The Body Shop' Brazilian nut body butter.
Bottom (left to right) = 'Lush' WOOOSH temple balm, Lanolips lip balm pink.

Ps =
I had a first date with a guy initialed 'T' . He is not the same 'T' guy that I dated a few months ago. Current 'T' is half Maltese half Egyption. We had a coffee and a chat on a saturday night for 4 hours (continued with foods). I had a wonderful time, he is such a gentleman, he put his scarf over my neck when its getting cold and he texted me afterwards thanking and complementing me. Hes so lovely :)

so long, such a lovely date to end a lovely week xxx
