What are some good wristwatches for women? I feel like we are missing out on all the good stuff, the watch market is mostly aimed at men.

I bought this a couple days ago. Less than 24€, I really like this brand. The pic is not mine but I decided a photo of someone wearing it would give you a more accurate idea of how it suits my wrist. My mother said it's a winter watch!!

Anonymous 8361


Here's a picture of the model.

Anonymous 8362

This is nice. Simple, understated, elegant, and austere. Casio is a reliable brand too. This watch would probably look great if you dressed in black and white formalwear

Only watch I will ever wear tbh.

Yes! I wanted something formal and discrete.


Help Finding Shoes! Anonymous 8478[Reply]

TLDR; i found these super cute shoes on amazon that i wanted to order for work & casual wear. i thought they were perfect because i’m very picky and typically not attracted to clothes but these really caught my eye, however, my size wasn’t offered. i am usually a size 7.5/8 in US shoes but according to their shoe chart i’m a 9, so i messaged them and asked if a 9 was available somehow and they were just like “no” and then immediately took the shoe off of their page. that made me sort of fishy, like maybe the design was stolen? i’m not very familiar with shoes or fashion so if anyone is familiar with this sort of thing do you recognise this shoe from anywhere? it would be really awesome if i could find the original maker and buy from there. if not, does anyone know where i could find a very similar type of shoe? i tried looking at lolita shoe websites but i don’t really like any of those, most of those seem a bit “over the top” to wear in the office.
any help is appreciated <3

Those are adorable… real unique. They have this sort of “what if Lolita but loafers” thing going on

Did you try a reverse image search? Post here if you find them, I kind of want a pair now.

Anonymous 8504

The shoes you picked in the op are cute but verrrry young looking. There are plenty of more sensible heels that aren’t 3+ inches tall. Maybe try looking at kitten heels? Or shoes with wide heels?

Anonymous 8507

Those shoes are hideous and you will look like you're LARPing as a child. Get some loafers or something like the Everlane day heel.

Anonymous 8508

If you wear a size nine shoe, there is absolutely no way that you look young.

Anonymous 8648


Well, this look cheap, in Spain we call them ''merceditas'' and I was myself looking to purchase some in leather (a good quality material). Something like this. I'm not a lolita or anything like that. I like the witch aesthetic tho, but more associated to elderly woman than to killstar shit.


Makeup advice Anonymous 313[Reply]

If this thread is redundant with the other makeup thread, feel free to tell me and I'll delete this one.

Let's ask for advice and answer each others' questions about makeup, and maybe about skincare too.

I'll start. I almost never wear makeup (at most maybe some colored lip balm and mascara), and while I take care of my skin, I feel like I should start using BB cream or foundation and/or mattifying powder or primer. But I don't know where to start with this, there are so many products that I don't know which ones could be useful and which ones would be a waste of money. By the way, I don't trust beauty bloggers and youtubers because there's a good chance they're sponsored to recommend some products and brands, I want sincere advice, which is why I ask here.

If I only want to hide my large pores and acne scars (not the colorful ones, they're more like some holes in the skin), should I only focus on some mattifying powder or a primer, or should I use one of these with a foundation or a BB cream? Also, which brands would you recommend for these products? I know korean BB cream is the best but I would rather be recommended things I can buy in stores and not just online, so I can try it to see if it's the right color for my skin.

Do they make one in a lighter shade than they did 10 years ago? I used to wear this in middle/high school until my dad told me I looked orange.

Anonymous 8035

i bought cloud paint in storm and it wad okay, hella pigmented yet somehow didn't last for more than 4 hours. i thought it would leave a stain but is more of a cream blush so i didn't think it was worth $22

i haven't tried lash slick but i tried a similar tubing mascara (Maybelline snapscara, considered a dupe) and it was lengthening and easy to take off, though if you keep it for too long it gets all crusty and clumpy. also it didn't hold a curl for me

Big tip for ladies who have chameleon skin:

Buy a foundation in your undertone color then buy a translucent powder with a tinted pigment/mineral powder/finishing powder of your nearest overtone color. Apply overtone foundation first then powder, bam youre done.

I have cool light warm skin color yet its not tan nor fair. So my undertone is a cool color and my overtone is a warmer type. Yet not noticeable of a tan/brown color or white color, just pink with light brown mixed in. Its hard to describe.


Reusable sanitary products 8531[Reply]

Does anyone here have any experience with reusable sanitary towels? I've usually always used the Always brand but I've recently found out how toxic their products are. I'd like to get into the reusable ones but I don't know how effective they are and how comfortable.

Enough for it to not smell like rotting blood lol. What the original anon described is abnormal to my experience. I could never smell my period blood through pants or even underwear. Healthy periods should not have a strong smell from what I read as well.

Whew lass. You seem upset.

"Hymen fascination" exists because it's one of several indicators of virginity. Virginity fascination exists because faithful, monogomous marriages are essential for social and cultural stability. Virgin marriages, preferably for both males and females, correlate with happier and more faithful marriages.

Moreover, don't tell people to run away from their country's problems. We don't need more people transplating problems where they didn't exist before. If you want to see change, stay where you are and fix it, because you're in best position to do it. If people just run away when there are problems then you'll potentially transplant that problem to a new place and you'll perpetuate it in the place they left… because you'll only have the perpetuators of the problem left there.

Anonymous 8635

>indicators of virginity
did you not read what they wrote? they said that not all women are born with hymens so it's apparently NOT a good indicator of virginity.
>be the change
have you seen the islamic state of affairs?

Anonymous 8637


That's why I made "indicators" plural, because it should be one of several factors to take into consideration, not the end-all-be-all answer to the question of whether a female is a virgin or not.

And as far as not all women being born with a hymen, that's definitely not the norm. I just looked it up and read a few conflicting claims, but suffice it to say having no hymen present at all is a statistically very, very unlikely. There is such a thing as an imperforate hymen, and not all hymens look the same, so it can be mislabeled as absent or damaged or whatever.

As to the question of the Islamic state of affairs… The whole Islamic world is not homogeneous. Heck, this discussion could be applied to most of Africa and Asia as well. The Arab Spring is a good example of the folks over there getting fed up with the status quo. Sure, they do have a lot of socially/culturally unsustainable views and norms, but it's far from static. The region has and is changing.

Anonymous 8639

but it's kind of useless, there are 1000 ways to have sex or cheat that don't involve penetration to the vagina. you can get pregnant without breaking your hymen even.

saves water

daily hot showers aren't healthy

Anonymous 8629


Can't you just take normal warm/lukewarm showers?

Are cold shower takers using nothing but cold water?

Anonymous 8630

Nta, but I shampoo my hair with lukewarm water once a week and take very short baths/showers for stink control in between. I tried the cold shower meme but I noticed it wouldn’t fully wash my hair. I think the “cold shower” advice is for people who like boiling themselves in the shower for an hour and wonder why their skin is irritated.

Anonymous 8632


Yeah that sounds about right. I'm sure cold/cool showers are better than a half hour almost-scalding hot shower, but I've never had any skin/hair related problems and all I take are quick lukewarm showers.

I think being active helps too. I notice that if I start skipping workouts/running then I start breaking out or getting mild dandruff. Sweating seems to act like a natural skin moisturizer and hair conditioner for me.

Guess I'll keep doing what I'm doing.

Anonymous 8633

I do what I've heard called the James Bond method, which is where you start at a relatively warm temp (not hot, but not so cold you already hate it) and then slowely drop the temp. Nowadays I've gotten so used to it that I can hop in when it's already pretty cold.

I haven't noticed better skin but it DEFINITELY wakes me up more than a hot shower does. Taking a cold shower after any workout makes me feel alive and great. Mix that with coffee and let's fucking go.

How long have you been doing these things?

Anybody here workout?

I work out pretty regularly; regular weight lifting and strength training along with plenty of cardio. I can bench press 120lbs, but I've gone as high as 150lbs on good days.
It's come to the point where friends and family have taken notice because I've become considerably more muscular.
Sometimes I contradict myself because I don't want to be known as the buff girl, but I love seeing those numbers climb on the smith machine. And I can physically do more than I ever was able to before. I don't want to lose that.

Does anyone else here have a workout/exercise regime? Doesn't matter if it's only cardio or if you're a gym bunny like me. Let's talk about it!

Almost no runner looks at amateur runners and thinks they are stupid looking. They think "oh cool, I guess more people are getting into running. Good for them, hope they can get fit." None of us were born as fit people. If it takes you a few more years than us to get there, we're just happy you made it too.

Yesterday I started incorporating dips into my routine. (Before I was doing pushups every workout day, now I’m going to do dips instead every other time.) Holy crap, I was so worn out I would have slept at 7pm if I could’ve. The doms is sooo bad today.

On another note, what fitness communities do y’all visit? I’m on /fit/ and in some reddit comms but reddit makes me uncomfortable with how easy it is to see someone’s whole post history.

I'm really proud of my progress, and how consistent I've been this month. I hit at least 3 workouts a week (my goal) every week, plus cardio (biking) almost every day. I've progressed from 3 sets of 5 reps to 7, 7, 6 reps. Feels good.

What are your preferences for personal grooming?
How has it changed, or does it vary seasonally?

What does your routine consist of?

Can I use an epilator on the netherzone? Are these things strong enough to break skin?

Anonymous 8528

How often did you use it? My manual said to do it every two weeks. Thank you for reporting back! I'm trying to use it on my chin, armpits, and treasure map (line between belly button and pubic mound). for some reason i have been getting a lot of black/dark hair growing on my chin in the last year or so which is absolutely unacceptable. i'm also using it on where smilelines would come, because apparently ipl helps with wrinkles. no effects thus far.

i will try to be regular with it. i'm doing it every other weekend. even with the provided calming gel sometimes it's major ouchies on my armpits more than anywhere else.

Anonymous 8583

I despise any form of body hair in mem and women. It's just something I can't stand. One of the most idiotic things of feminism is trying to normalize body hair just because mem have it. The change should be otherwise, we should teach men that they should shave/wax too.

Anonymous 8608

I use a hair trimmer to get as close to my legs and bikini area as possible without actually shaving anything.
I used to shave pretty regularly, but I began getting ingrown hairs as I got older and I can't help but fuck with them. I have permanent scars around my inner thighs from this, so I said fuck it, I'm not doing this anymore.
Now I just trim.

Anonymous 8617

it's the same with a lot of things actually. women swearing, drinking, women sleeping around and getting stds, women caring about their careers more than their families. just a lot of retarded unncessary bullshit. offtopic tho.


Cost/Benefit of Losing Weight When Not Necessary Anonymous 8610[Reply]

I was underweight for my entire adolescence, got into a major ana phase as I entered my 20s, and now I'm finally at a healthy bmi (18.5-19). The problem is, at this weight, my clothes are having trouble fitting. I was a size 0 or 00, whatever the smallest size available was, and unfortunately, most of my wardrobe I've accumulated is now having trouble accommodating how I've gained weight in the bottom area of my body. Furthermore, even my size small/xs tops are also having trouble fitting because my bust increased, too. I'm very compelled to lose 10 pounds so I can utilize my full wardrobe because I don't want to spend the money on buying a whole new one; however, that would mean I'm underweight again. Wat do? Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to be ana again, I just want a fit/lean body.

Anonymous 8611

Also, I'm quite conflicted regarding tops because I am planning on getting implants in the near future

Anonymous 8612

you sure losing weight again wouldn't make you relapse?

Anonymous 8613

By the clothes you need (not a whole new wardrobe) second hand or on the cheap while you're in this in-between state. Don't use clothes /money as an excuse to relapse.

If you lower your bodyfat while maintaining the same weight you will take up less volume and fit in your clothes better.

>Imagine being seen primarily for your looks.
Literally everyone of every second forever.
The maymay that personality, confidence, attitude comes first is a lie. What you look like is always the first thing that starts to affect someone's brain regarding you.

University studies have proven that 'gay face' and 'pedo face' are not only real, but very accurate. People can very accurately, without any information other than looks, guess a criminal or a sexuality.

I'd rather be pretty than ugly because people are going to immediately judge you for your looks either way. At least when you're pretty people are shallow in a helpful way, like giving you more money or holding doors and stuff. When you're ugly, people are still shallow but just even more openly cruel or dismissive.

Anonymous 8598

You're close minded if you think there's only pretty or ugly. The example posted by anon here >>8590 is unappealing to me if that's what you consider a "Stacy" and I would still not like to look that way. You can also experience bullying if you're too attractive since people are cruel and jealous.
