The manifesto of encouragement?


the manifesto of encouragement (6)

What is powerful in this manifesto of encouragement? The knowledge and though of someone somewhere is carrying out an action that is linked or will affect you, no matter where or who you might be, is truly powerful. No man is a lone island and no man can be. Every single being is part of change and is constantly changing.....for this is the truth and rule of life.

So next time you think of something negative, consider what energy you might be sending out and how your action may affect another being consciously or unconsciously. Consider how a smile can brighten another person's day. Consider how sunshine can lift away dark clouds. Have you ever been that stranger who wanted to make another stranger laugh? Have you ever wanted to share a sunrise with someone you love? Think of the joy of the moment you are giving as a gift to another fellow being in this vast, but small universe. This is why you are powerful.....so choose to live every day with power.

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

How-To: Build a 1920s inspired Great Gatsby look!

With my birthday coming up in a little more than two weeks, and having decided on a vintage themed party, it is time to put my vintage thinking headband on! Last year I had fun dressing up as a 1940s inspired Pin Up girl, and this year I have decided to go a little further back in time.....yes my darlings....we will be roaring in a 1920s glitzy Great Gatsby affair!

The 1920s has been a favourite decade of mine for quite some time.....admittedly the decadence of the glittering heavily beaded long gowns, the extravagantly flirty ostrich feathers and the shiny Art Deco gem-stoned pieces might have something to do with it! It was true that the roaring 20s was a rebirth period for many because of the survival of WW1, so living every new day as free, happy and extravagant as possible became the ideal dream. With more women embracing liberation by replacing restrictive corsets with loose flowing dresses that revealed more flesh than ever before, a period embracing individuality, creativity, …

Qipao Love: Part 1~ From Qi Pao to Cheongsam.....an evolution of a dress about women!

Welcome my lovely darlings to the new address www.WalkingInMay.com as the blogspot to custom domain transition is now officially completed! Worry not, if you are still using the walkinginmay.blogspot.co.uk address it should automatically divert to the blog and there is also a new e-mail address if you should like to drop me a line to say hello or ask any questions; may@walkinginmay.com! What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…
