Get yer mind outta the gutter, NOT THOSE LIPS, but THOSE LIPS. Smooches.
While shopping with my daughter awhile back in the breezing sunny skys on Second Street in Belmont Shores here in gorgeous Long Beach I about flipped when I saw these in beauty supply store. What more could an obsessed lover of lingerie need? LINGERIE inspired make-up. Yep, that did it, I was hooked. These are your fancy panties, the ones you slip on for that special evening. Packaged together, these mini versions of Dianna Brill's full size glosses will be off almost as soon as they are on! This little sweet delight comes in Frilly Thong, Sheer String and Jewelled G-String, along with three limited edition colors designed exclusively by Ms. Brill for this set, Pearly Panty, Vinyl V-String and Satin Hipster. I was thinking, where are the vintage FULL BRIEF PIN-UP PANTY? Maybe that will be next on her list.

Me ball and chain is a limey, and wish I had a nickle for every time I hear "Shelley, don't get your knickers in a twist". To dummy it down a bit for us Americans (my husband is from England and what he means is "Don't get your panties in a twist".
Selling vintage lingerie over the years, I have heard so many variations for what people call undergarments. Sure, we Americans call them panties or panty, or the dreaded "underwear" ughhhhhhh, YUCK. Did you know here in America, the garter belt is known to the Brits as a suspender belt! Men's suspenders are knows to the Brits as braces.
Confused yet? It's ok, keep your pecker up.

Save the Ta Ta's. I saw this bumper sticker the other day on a car. I didn't know quite what to think. At first I laughed, then I cried. I have known (as I am sure you have), two people that have been affected by breast cancer. One of them my Nana, one of them a very dear friend at church. I have met numerous other women, but none close to me that have this dreaded disease. Breast cancer runs in my family. It's a scary thing, and I try not to think about it, but I have too. I have to go in twice a year for ultrasounds as I have had some close calls. Thank God above, every time my tests come back benign.
As for mammograms. Not sure what all the hoopla is about. It doesn't hurt. Not sure why women say it does hurt. Even if it does hurt, why would women tell other women this? Are they STUPID? Yes, I'm sorry, but it's pure ignorance. Why in the hell would you tell someone this when it might prevent them from getting a mammogram? I have had to bite my tongue more then once to tell these women off. KEEP YOUR MOUTHS SHUT. What you say could deter another woman from getting tested. Ok, I'm off my high-horse.
GO GET YOUR MAMMOGRAMS, if not for yourself, then for your daughter, your sister, your mother, your husband, your son, your father, your friends. They all love you, and so should you.
Cannot afford a mammogram? National Cancer Institute Contact them at 1-800-4-CANCER. If you provide your zip code, they can give you a center providing free mammograms. THERE ARE NO EXCUSES.
