Beauty Brains Blondies and Best Behavior

“Rarely do great beauty and great virtue dwell together – Francesco Petrarch”

Beauties and Blondes

Came across this quote in my last years diary and it got me thinking #Ihatesomequotes honestly, why would someone say that. I know some people would highly support that statement but maybe because they aren’t beautiful..PERIOD! so as a way to get back to the beautiful ones, they use that.

That beauties are blondies. Well, blondies are just blondies they shouldn’t be associated with beauty. Just like you don’t say a handsome man is not intellectual. well quote and quote some are damn but i dint say that.

I can attest to the fact that many beautiful girls are very brilliant and intellectual, I won’t blow my own trumpet, so I will say my friends. Like in my circle of friends, I don’t choose who my girls are but I can say they are all beautiful and brilliant.. oh well, birds of a feather flock together.

What makes a guy think a girl/lady/woman (whichever fits your preference), is a blond or better yet not intellectual, even without having to measure your IQ – which i think is plain right lame; In my analysis,

Is it the way someone talks? like if you have that american accent, even before you have made sense out of a sentence, some one will have already concluded you don’t know what you are saying.

The way you reason? If someone asks a question – That they already know the answer..verry irritating by the way – then waits for you to answer, and probably how you understood the question is abit different from how they perceived it as, then you answer something completely different, they just conclude that this right here is a blondie.

The way you dress? Some people judge you from the way you dress. Funny enough the very well dressed girls could sometimes be mistaken as blondes even before they say anything. You know, just from the look of things, which I think is #NotSoCool

The way you handle your things? you would find that some girls are sensitive and like attention , want to be loved ..this is the love side of which no one is brilliant, and i mean no one even the most perfect couple that you can think of. Someone could do the most stupid and blondiest of things in the name of love.. this is why we classify it as a #MajorFail

Beauties and Brains,

Now this I can proudly say that I know many of this ones… funny enough at one point we’ve done quite a number of blonde things, answered questions in some blonde mannerisms but brain-wise we on the grind.

“All I would say is never judge anyone, you never know where they are coming from or where they are going. Treat everyone like you would want to be treated. Because what you are thinking of them is probably what they are thinking of you I.e. “You think am blonde, I think your worse..lol” “

Beauties and Virtues

Why would anyone think that beauties don’t have virtues… or the ones that have are very rare…tsk! After all the Ethics classes we went through in campus…lol again that statement just sucks! 3/4 of the ladies I know lead a virtuous life, and am speaking from the experience of being with them, interacting with them, being one of them..hehe, beauty and virtue shouldn’t be compared it’s the heart, the inner self that should be compared to virtue.

Actually Beauty is even on the eyes of the beholder…like its relative term thats subjective to each and every individual…as sometimes people would even say “beauty is in the eyes of the beer-holder”..lol

Ok…this part, i stole (talk of plagiarizing someone elses work)…so let me just reference it before am sued … lol

Classy, Sexy, Hot and Cool

My take on what classy, sexy, hot and cool are. This is very objective and they’re more of my own words and thoughts. Well to aid in my explanations, i opted to use Celebrity models i.e. actors and singers to further elaborate or so that you can see the picture instead of trying to imagine…hehe

So here goes;

Classy looks exquisite, elegant, unique, kind of expensive,enterprising. One doesn’t have to be really hot or sexy to look classy. For classy, its more of how you dress. The fabric, the quality… now thats classy. And it looks attractive in a hidden way.

Classy Look

Sandra Bullock, i think had the classy look in “The Proposal” movie.I totally loved the simple official look. The Black well-cut suit accessorised with the small black belt. Then black matching shoes that have a touch of red. The brown bag gives a bit of contrast.

Now this to me is classy.

Kate WinsletClassy

Kate Winslet, also has the classy look with the dresses. Very Simple black and blue dress without much accessories. The word “Elegance” is just screaming.

Sexy is just like the word itself, it is sexually appealing look, it’s the one of those, stop and stare/glance. It mainly has to do with the body poise, body figure and some sort of facial expression…The sexy look makes someone look Yummy.

Sexy

Angelina jolie

Angelina Jolie is my no.1 definition of Sexy…the eyes, the lips, the facial expression …. The picture here speaks 1000 words..YUMMY!

Sexy

Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé on the other hand has got the body…nice figure well sculptured. It speaks volumes..hehe, totally appealing to the men especially, as well as women. Her poises to sort of bring out her sexyness.

Hot is I think more natural beauty, like one is pretty(it’s just there) even without all the make up, smooth skin, nice body… one could be fat/ thin and still be hot. They are noticeable from afar.

Hot

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson depicts hotness. She’s plus size and she’s naturally beautiful. She makes big look pretty, hot and totally cool at that.

Hot

Taylor Swift

That’s Taylor Swift for you, absolutely gorgeous, natural beauty right there. In every sense of it.

Cool is the simple trendy look, it has to mainly do with how you dress or carry yourself out. No much drama, just calm and collected. Sort of the chilled out look and one would say you haven’t tried too much.

I could say this look is normally unobtrusive…its not like the sexy look which is highly noticeable.

Cool

Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz, has that cool look. Its simple but looks trendy.As you can see she probably dint try too much to look nice but she does, now thats cool to me.

Cool

Halle Berry

Halle Berry here carries out the total and complete cool look, very simple, doesn’t scream out “look at me”..its more inconspicuous, but when you see, you totally like and want to be associated with.

So that’s “My Take” for today.

To conclude, I think anyone can be classy and cool because it’s mainly in how you dress, and how you carry yourself out. For instance, You dress in a classy or cool way… then you have to sit, walk and talk classy or cool. Otherwise, that look doesn’t work.

As for hot and sexy, actually the two sometimes do go hand in hand. I think its more of how you look, that is, in terms of your appearance, bodily structure, hair. Then topped up by how you dress the body…It’s just God-given :)
