A little about me

Do you have a favourite colour?

I for most of my life never thought much about having a favourite colour but recently I was talking to my granddaughter Sydney-May and she asked me what my favourite colour was and after thinking for a moment my answer was purple, I like different shades of purple and I also like different shades of pink I don't like hot pink the shades have to be softer shades also not big on deep purple I prefer the softer shades of purple.

When I was younger I liked to wear black a lot and yes still do like black but the older I get the more I like lighter and brighter colours. Although when it comes to prints I am not great at mixing prints if I wear a skirt that has a print I usually go for a block colour top and if I wear a block coloured skirt I will chose a printed top but I don't wear two different prints as I can't get them to mix when I have tried to wear two different prints they clash. Well I think they clash.

How are you at mixing prints can you do it or are you like me and feel they clash so you don't bother.

When I go out shopping or to have a meal I like to look nice, I like to wear some make-up and some jewellery and for many years a nice pair of heels. However, my days of wearing heels are long gone, I don't have the balance for heels now days and my knees are not good when I am wearing heels so I have moved onto shoes with only a slight heel. I can't wear flats as they make my legs ache, a lot.

I have a lot of jewellery not expensive stuff but nice looking cheaper stuff and I am one of those people who likes her jewellery to match. Hell I also like my eye-shadow to match what I am wearing, as in if I am wearing a pink top I will have pink eye-shadow if I am wearing black I will have a greyish eye-shadow. My girls tell me at times that I should wear neutral colour eye-shadow but that is not me. I also like to wear panty hose and knee high stockings if I am wearing long pants or a long skirt.

How about you do you like to match?

Do you wear much jewellery?

If you are male what do you think do you like to see women who have make-up on and some jewellery.

Do you think bare legs are nicer then legs in panty hose?

I don't really have a favourite colour but I love soft pastel colours. I am not into bright colour and seldom wear black because I feel hot and sweat a lot in black. Wear a little make up but almost none now that I have retired and prefer the natural look. No more jewelry maybe except a small ear ring on special occasion and in our hot weather, I prefer bare legs.

Hi Jo-Anne, I don't really have a favourite colour, but as I'm getting older I am preferring some brighter colours now but not keen on red. Black is my favourite for pants then I can wear bright tops & match it with jewellery depending on how I feel. I do like wearing rings but wait for birthdays when my husband sometimes spoils me, I have 3 grand daughters so I am trying to get enough for myself to wear now so I can leave them some later. They all love looking at my rings & trying them on.

Nice photo Jo-Anne.
I wear makeup each day and neutral eye shadow.
Mostly wear sandals, winter flat shoes.
Like purple, red and also black.
Wear jewelry but it's not costume jewelry.

I like bright colored tops but tend to wear slacks that are dark. Most of the time I wear jeans. As for makeup, I wear a small amount of makeup, usually lipstick and blush.

Jewelry, I wear my wedding and engagement rings, a watch and earrings. I own a lot of nice jewelry but only wear it occasionally.

My favorite colors seem to change as I get older. I love lavender but basically I like all colors except for orange. It's a beautiful color for a pumpkin or orange but not for me to wear, or decorate with.

My favorite color has always been blue. I also stopped wearing jewelry after those mean boys beat me up in 6th grade.

Yeah in summer when it's stinking bloody hot I prefer bare legs with thongs, and black can make you hot if you wear it in the summer months

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Yeah I like black pants so I can wear a nice top with it as anything goes with black. I use to wear a lot of rings but recently my hands have been swelling up a bit so I haven't been wearing them

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

I only wear costume jewellery because I have a habit of losing stuff.

Thanks for saying you liked the photo.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

I also like to wear jeans I have three pairs black, blue and red and love them in the cooler months.

99% of my jewellry is cheap stuff but it is also nice looking stuff and I don't stress out if I loss a piece

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Orange was a colour I wouldn't look at for many years now I have a couple of nice short dresses in orange that I do like but don't wear a lot

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Natasha's favourite colour is blue just saying and those mean boys beating you up for wearing jewellry how nasty, lol. Although now days it is pretty common place to see young men with ear rings and rings on fingers as such couldn't imagine that being the fad a couple of hundred years ago

Purple is my favorite too!

I don't like to wear flats either! I like chunky heels or wedges, no stilettos for me! And I don't like them to be too high either.

Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

Well that is good to hear, I used to wear chunky heel and wedges all the time

The last few days

Good morning world, I have turned the corner and at least I feel a tad better still got a ways to go before I am 100% at the moment I am ...
