Snag Your Swag This Spring and Summer #fashion

This year March came in like a lamb… and now everyone’s roaring to go. While we all know where men’s minds are (the same place they’ve been all year), women’s thoughts turn to style.  This spring/summer’s fashion line-up includes distinct signature marks:  bright colors, bold prints, big tops, small bottoms, drop waists, cut-outs, short shorts, pointy heels and flats, mini-bags, anoraks, and, of course, hats.  Upbeat and fun, it’s tempting to want to wear everything; but wearer beware, simply because it looks good on a hanger or model doesn’t mean it will work for you.  Oscar de la Renta said it well, “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable…style is more about being yourself.”

In other words, pick the look that looks best on you…then apply your swag to it.  Anybody can buy fashion…but not everyone can find style.

Narcissistic? Who Isn’t? #Narcissism #psychology

In an effort to become more inclusive, the DSM-IV (American Psychiatric Association’s bible of psychological disorders) seems to have become more ambiguous…and that vagueness has bred confusion. Following the broadening of criteria leading to the over diagnoses of disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Depression, and Bi-Polar Disorder, the expanded characteristics of Narcissism now can include most of us. Take a look at the the list…and decide which one of these criteria hasn’t defined your behavior or the behavior of those around you at one time or another. Then answer this question: Who doesn’t quality somewhere on the Narcissism continuum? Thank you, DSM-IV, for enabling everyone to feel dysfunctional.
