Beauty Today

So what is beauty, beauty is feeling beautiful. To further answer that question for you we think it best to begin with a simple definition of a very complex term.

This subject is the phenomenon of the experience of pleasure, through the perception of balance and proportion of stimulus. It involves the cognition of a balanced form and structure that elicits attraction and appeal towards a person, animal, inanimate object, scene, music, or idea.

Understanding the nature and meaning of something beautiful is one of the key themes in the rational authority, aesthetics.

Robert Schumann composer and critic, distinguished between two kinds, natural and poetic.

The former we find in the contemplation of nature, the latter in man's conscious, creative intervention into nature.

Schumann indicated that in music, or other art, both kinds appear, but the former is only sensual delight, while the latter begins where the former leaves off.

Our goal is not just to guide you to look beautiful but to feel beautiful.

Are You Chic

Being Chic

The timeless sophistication of chic.

We believe a woman to be a combination of both the natural and the poetic. We also believe that the balance of the two is something very personal and individual. 

You are beautiful beyond any doubt. You are a unique woman with special attributes that no other woman possesses. Unfortunately, many women keep their true beauties hidden.

When you acknowledge your "hidden” beauty, you give yourself permission and confidence to see yourself as beautiful.

The Beauty Myths

A myth is that being attractive can be measured by a scale or can be described in words. 

Beautiful is an impression, which a woman leaves on others, and that impression is the true reflection of many fine characteristics of her own personality and inner charm and qualities.

We find it equally important to show you how to nourish and nurture the inner as well as the aesthetic. You will find many articles and resources at this section for your to find a comfortable balance of the two. 

One simply cannot take place without the other. We would be short changing you drastically if we just showed you ways too look pretty or to strive to attain perfect myth.

This has many supporting examples. Most people judge physically attractive human beings to be good, both physically and on deeper levels. "Attractive as goodness" still has whole classes of significant counterexamples with no agreed solution. 

These include such things as a glacier, or a ruggedly dry desert mountain range. Many people find something beautiful in hostile nature, but this seems bad or at least unrelated to any sense of goodness. Another type of counterexample is comic or sarcastic works of art, which can be good, but are rarely attractive. 

Those damaging myths started back in time. The earliest theory of beauty can be found in the works of early Greek philosophers from the pre-Socratic period, like Pythagoras.

The extant writings attributed to Pythagoras reveal that the Pythagorean school, if not Pythagoras himself, saw a strong connection between mathematics and beauty. In particular, they noted that objects proportioned according to the golden ratio seemed more attractive. 

Some modern research seems to confirm this, in that people whose facial features are symmetric and proportioned according the golden ratio are consistently ranked as more attractive than those whose faces are not.

Different cultures have deified beauty, typically in female forms (the reason for which is probably that most well known mythologies were conceived of and standardized by heterosexual men).

Here are just a few of the goddesses in different mythologies

  • Aphrodite - Greek mythology
  • Lakshmi - Hindu mythology
  • Venus - Roman mythology

The Contests

Contests claim to be able to judge the most beautiful.. The millihelen is sometimes jokingly defined as the scientific unit of human beauty.

This derives from the legend of Helen of Troy as presented in Christopher Marlowe's The Tragic History of Doctor Faustus, in which her beauty was said to have launched a thousand ships. The millihelen is therefore the degree of beauty that can launch one ship.

It seems each year the standard is raised and raised on exactly what physical characteristics, the aesthetic only, define beauty.

If we let that hold true, you would need these characteristics to be so: perfect pouty lips, a perfectly proportioned bone structure, perfect porcelain skin, perfectly voluptuous bust line, perfect size 3 waistlines, perfect hair,three feet of spun silk would do.

Is that not perfectly ridicules? 

Even though science and cosmetics have joined to offer a woman every conceivable solution to be her most attractive, the above would obviously be an unrealistic goal for any woman to strive for.You will never reach it and you will never be content with yourself. 

You can however, discover the fountain of youth take time to care and pamper, sleep well, and relax a little more.Your reward for this goal will be contentment, a healthy, alive look and mind set.
