Sebastian’s Yoga Wear suggestions.

I’ve always felt great support in my yoga, knowing that Sebastian is right behind me, whether I am doing a forward fold or a sun salutation. Always knowing he’s there to plunge in and make sure I don’t overdo it is a constant source of reassurance for me.

At his suggestion I am including a few of his ideas for anyone interested in enjoying yoga. Now, as you likely know, yoga isn’t just about stretching. Some people would even say that to think of it in those limited terms is quite ignorant. It is, of course, also about looking good.

To quote Maya Angelou, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you look.”

So I’m including a small selection of clothing ideas you may enjoy. As I write this I am sitting on Sebastian’s right hand and we’re creating it together. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.

This is a great sports bra. It can easily be padded for the fuller look, but is great for a thorough workout too. It’s available in a range of great colors and will look great as you pretzel yourself into shape.

High Waisted Yoga Shorts – https://amzn.to/3uitICO

What could be better. High waisted yoga shorts feel lovely and emphasize your waist. They’re also comfortable and convenient to wear. Carrying a pair in a back pack and slipping into them before your yoga class is a simple way to look great and change swiftly into something that will be great to work out in.

It’s important to have a nice pair of leggings, whether you’re doing yoga or just relaxing at home. They show of your legs and have a desirable slimming effect for most body shapes.

Fiona’s Shopping List – Eye Shadow.

Since I had Sylvester do some work on my electrical wiring I have been having trouble with my fuses. Periodically I find myself bathed in darkness as the electricity goes out. I’ve had several electricians come to check the system, and another is coming to check the fuses shortly. Currently I blow three or four a week under the stairs. Frankly, I’ve had about as much as I can swallow. I think I should just replace the entire wiring system.

That, however is not the main reason I am writing today. I thought I’d include a little tip for all those crossdressers who are yet to master their make up, and let’s be honest, there’s a few!

Auntie Kittie’s nieces and nephews get into so much trouble. Don’t forget, you can enjoy Auntie Kittie’s Diary on my Patreon for just $1 a month. Join today for Clothes Maketh The Man, free dating sites for disabled and a wealth of crossdressing content.

Generally a girl starts playing with make up when they’re nine or ten years old. These are often forrays into mum’s handbag or make up draw and at first they are disastrous. However, particularly after playing with friends, they gradually improve. As they get older their makeup often becomes bolder and they learn various subtleties in their choices of color and their techniques.

Many crossdressers struggle, and get upset with themselves for not getting great results from the very start of their makeup use. This can be disheartening. I understand, and you should be aware that it doesn’t have to be that way. Be patient and practice.

While I don’t generally give specific make up tips – there’s many others out there who do amazing makeup tutorials on Youtube – I will offer this. If you choose subtle colors, using minimal amounts, you can gradually incorporate a few colors into your everyday regime without putting yourself into a position where you’re exposing yourself unnecessarily. A subtle amount of eye makeup to sharpen your look is a great way to feel feminine and to gradually improve your makeup skills.

The palette above is a good example of what you may want to start using. Nothing too garish, unless you are really ready to go full Ru Paul on the world. If you’re just starting out, applying a nice blend of shades now and then will be satisfying and even if you’re not completely ‘out’, can really help you enjoy your look.

After using make up for years I can firmly attest that less is generally more. Don’t be afraid to go for ‘subtle’. It will build up your confidence and if you can integrate it into your daily life. Then as you do gain proficiency you will find that experimenting with a greater range of tones is easy.

The other tip I’d add for anyone using eyeshadows for the first time is to be sure you have a selection of brushes. Applying the shades with a nice brush gives you even coverage and makes merging one color with another much easier. Using a little foundation on the eyelid will provide a smooth start point, though sometimes when you just need to grab and go, it’s not entirely necessary.

Enjoy the video tutorial below, but be sure to explore the Amazon link below for color palettes that might work well for you. In the end be sure to remember that practice makes perfect.

Fiona’s Shopping List.

Amanda, Ali and Sylvester have popped over for a light lunch of cheese and the pickles I make myself. I do enjoying pickling the onions and some of the other vegetables Ali and I grow in the garden. The cheese we have from Quebec is also particularly good. And of course sometimes I run out of the pickles I make myself, and so I have to palm them off with relish.

I was just listening to Amanda clomping about in my kitchen, when I remembered that as we approach spring I am going to need some new things. First among additions to my wardrobe will be a nice pair of medium heels.

I also love sandals. Something that’s easy to get into and easy to slide out of. (Phrasing). One simply cannot have too many pairs of heels.

At only $39.99 these Peep Toe Stiletto Backless Slides Heeled Sandals are a joy to wear or look at. Patent leather and a medium heel mean you will have quality and comfort. You can buy them HERE.

I do find that if I only wear very high heels my feet, legs and back all regret it. However, a slightly more forgiving pair are always a good idea. I get to wear them more, I am in less pain and of course it’s a great excuse to add to my wardrobe.

These lovely three inch heels come in mens sizes and look delightful whether with a pair of jeans or a skirt. Now is the time to start planning your look as the days start to get a little warmer. What are you looking at adding to your wardrobe in spring?
