Birthstones, Funfacts, and Licenses. x]

"For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither like the green herb"

Psalms 37:2

I am so so so so soooooo sorry for the lack of posts since the polyvore sets. (when I post just PV sets, it usually means I am too darn busy to put an hour's effort into a good one) But, now I will present to you a "good" blog post, along with some polyvore sets, ( I couldn't resist, now that I am back into PV) and some other cool fashion-related stuff. :)


Yes, most of you all know that my buddy, BB, or cutepony8 on Girlsense passed her driving test!!!!! So, cheers to you! :)

(^^FYI every blog post, I will try to post my "IN's and OUT's of the day".)

I was searching for some "fashion fun facts" and came upon an awesome website, and found these:

-It is impossible to put mascara on with your mouth completely closed.

-The Mona Lisa does not have any eyebrows. It was the fashion in the Renaissance time to shave them off.

-During the time of Peter the Great, any Russian man who had a beard was required to pay a special tax.

-A German man goes an average of 7 days without washing his underwear

-Every U.S. president has worn glasses, some just didn't want to wear them in public

-In ancient Rome it was considered a sign of leadership to be born with a crooked nose.

-Everyone thinks it was Whitcomb Judson who invented the zipper but it was really Elias Howe. Elias was so busy inventing the sewing machine that he didn't get around to selling his zipper invention which he called a "clothing closure".

-Men were the first to wear jewelry as a status symbol and as good luck amulets to aid them in battle.

-Aaron, first high priest of the Hebrews, wore 12 gemstones (representing the 12 tribes of Israel) in his silver breastplate. This is when birthstones originated.

-About 75% of American brides receive a diamond engagement ring.

-In the eighteenth century the French Comte d'Artois owned a set of diamond buttons, each of which had a miniature clock encased inside it.

-According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, two out of five women in America dye their hair.

-The Greeks in the time of Alexander the Great liked blond hair as much as we do today. Men and women alike bleached their locks with potash water and herbal infusions, creating a reddish-blond color considered to be the height of style and beauty.

-In India it is perfectly proper for men to wear Pajamas in public. Pajamas are accepted as standard daytime wearing apparel.

-Pearls melt in vinegar.

-88% of women by shoes a size too small.
