Hats count, right? 

@Becoming Diana I agree that a Red Scarf would be the next item, and you're off. I also agree with @Hannah Reneethat I need to go beyond visors, an ball caps. I do rely of ball caps to keep my long hair in a loose ponytail without using a scrunchie.

 

Hugs,

I have a number of ball-type caps, which are good sun as hade for my walks. Looks like I'll need to branch out into something more stylish.

Having to wear ball caps as uniform in the military and then on my job turned me against ball caps.  To each their own I guess.

 

Been trying to get back in the habit of walks by the river.  I used to go regularly, but then covid, and also a flood washed out a lot of the trail.  But they're getting tings put back together now.  I was down there this morning.

I would totally go with you if I there wasn't an ocean between us. lol

I'm up to 27 pairs and still, I can't find the right shoe for the occasion/outfit half the time.

What would life be without those little obstacles to overcome?

 

Anyway, on my walk today, I encountered a woman with her young son (around 3 years old) and her two dogs. Being as I'm a sucker for dogs, and, quite frankly, most dogs are a sucker for me, I stopped for a nice friendly interaction. Two days ago, a similar happenstance with woman around my age, also with two dogs. Another worthwhile minute of interruption to my walk. Moral of the story - take advantage of such random interactions to build confidence in who you are. Picture is from when I finished my walk.

I mean the right pink that matches her complexion, sure. Maybe with accents. I mean not JUST pink.

 

Ooh, or a deep red... That dress would look good in red...

 

Absolutely keep the belt though, you're rocking that. Perfect accent. Honestly that whole style is super-flattering on you @Elizabeth Star.

 

Hugs!

Feeling really happy about my eye makeup today, after watching tutorials and practicing for two weeks! I still need to get mascara for the eyes, and once I have foundation/concealer/powder that matches my skin, I'll begin practicing that also! Electrolysis is going to be a welcome service as well XD

It's certainly a process but looks like you're getting the eyes. Eyeliner is still my bane. Good choice in color!, Stay away from the whole dark sultry look unless you get FFS. Stay with lighter colors.  One thing that can help your eyes is start working on removing hair from the lower part of your eyebrows toward the midline/nose bridge to make your brows "look" higher and thinner. It lets more light into the eye area /less shadow and  highlights your eye shadow. Or you can have them waxed.  I use a #3 trimmer on my electric clipper to get the length down then this tool to "shaper" them because I just can't do the plucking thing. If you ever do FFS the brow ridge reduction and subsequent brow lift corrects this challenge. Until then this technique can help.  Bushy brows are a newer trend with women but if we try that it looks "heavy" and accentuates our brow ridge :(.   You have gorgeous eyes btw!

And you will be surprised how fast electrolysis will start helping given how dark your hair is.  It's a very long process so prioritize it if you can.

Hey, @Bri2020! Thanks for the hints and tips! I'm actually working with a donated palette at the moment, so I don't have a lot of room to move outside of that just yet. Once I get a job, it's on! I will definitely consider removing some weight from the side of my brows that are closer to my eyelid; I've already been cleaning up the bottom of the arch away from my nose, so it's in my joy to play around with that heavier bit you're talking about.

 

FFS is already in my scope as something I'll want to do a year after starting hormones. My nose and jawline are extremely bold, and that needs to change if I'm hoping to pass for anything but a Greek girl (I'm fluent in the language, but not from there).

 

As for electrolysis, have you any thoughts/knowledge about the at-home units?

 

Hugs for you and thanks for the feedback!

At home units are not effective at all.  I'm not sure where you are in MD but if you happen to be inside the beltway then over the bridge in Alexandria is Alternative Health Associates which does great electro work and has been working with the trans community for 20+ years.

Unfortunately, electro is basically a nice car payment per month to get done around here. I was going once a week for 60 or 90 minutes for 18 months. I had to stop after FFS for a while to give the face time to heal. Kaiser pays for most of it except $30/visit if I use AHA. They're considered in network.

All of that is great to know, @Bri2020. At your suggestion, I've made note of AHA and will consider them highly upon my return to the workforce!

The tag says "Live and Let Live" 💖

@Jamey Thank you for posting this. I found a few outlets that sell the “Live and Let Live” ladies tops. The line is wonderful for us older gals. I love tunics and that brand carries many wonderful choices. I couldn’t find the exact one you were wearing in your pic but I did find several alternative choices that I really like.😁

2nd date with a woman I went hiking with last week. I'm cooking her dinner and then we planned on "couch cuddles" and stream a movie.  I'm cooking a scallop Tajine. I think it's going to go well because I am having a fabulous hair day. lol. Only challenge (or is it) is this dress' propensity to have a wardrobe malfunction.  haha

you look really nice  and have a good date

Thank you everyone. and yes there was a wardrobe malfunction but went unnoticed :(. lol.   However, I think I've hooked her on my cooking. #mad-kitchen-skills-are-sexy

Today I get to see a girlfriend who I haven't seen in about two months since was away on work. Just a really good friendship. She was my first "new friend" after I came out and has been such an amazing part of my life this last 18 months or so.  She's having a brunch today. I don't celebrate Easter but thought an  easter style dress was appropriate for the day. (although the temps dropped :(.  ). 

Now that I look at this the boots aren't going to work so I will figure out something there. lol

At least you were prepared for such an embarrassing moment and were able to take the necessary corrective action.😁 Perhaps someday I will find myself in such a compromising circumstance.😔

 

I love your flowers - very spring-y. I have the same trouble regarding footwear. My daughter is able to help, though, assuming I even have something appropriate.

Yeah I been using that 20 dollar trimmer and it's a little slow but it works. Then one of those brown ink brow pensto fill in the scant patches and accentuate the shape.

      As a person in recovery in AA i have found that Christianity has never been forced down my throat.  It was suggested that i find a higher power.  I'm still in looking 15 years later but that search never took me to Christianity. It has helped me accept\, know and love myself and others.   Some may well take the path of Christianity  but there is certainly no requirement to do so.

      There's an urban myth connected with this that Adams' last words were "Jefferson still survives. The republic is safe." His actual last words were "At least Jefferson still lives." He was mistaken as Jefferson died five hours earlier.

      The 50 star U.S. flag was designed by a man in Lancaster, Ohio   Americans eat 150 million hotdogs on The 4th of July.   There is something written on the back of the Declaration of Independence (it was written on parchment that had been written on earlier during the Revolutionary War.   Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on the 50th anniversity of the the Declaration.

      I know this is an old post, but it really resonated with me. I'm 29 and didn't realize I was trans until a week ago.   The dysphoria has always been there (bottom dysphoria, in particular). I also hate my chest...but I don't know if that's more related to trauma than dysphoria. Possibly both? This is all still very new to me. And I guess that's where my barriers lie. Self-doubt. I'm never sure of myself. But what makes me sure of this is the fact that I feel empowered by the realization. I feel like a new man...because that's precisely what I am. Once I can start presenting as such without judgement, then I'll be much better off.

      @Elizabeth StarI had to go in person (which I preferred anyway) since that e-file system is so convoluted. Being in a small county helped that process.   I'm sorry you're having to go through all this stress. I also know that you are a woman of strength, and you will get through this.   Hugs

      Good morning, everyone.   I didn't sleep too hot last night (nightmares galore!). And my husband has me worried because he's panicking over the Supreme Court ruling and is having conversations with his parents that don't involve me at all...even though I'm the subject of the conversation. It's making me a little uneasy. I know he's worried and doesn't want me to worry, but he doesn't realize that by not including me in the conversation, it's making me worry. I tried telling him that and he just changed the subject.     I'm so sorry you're going through that, Elizabeth. As someone with CPTSD, I can certainly relate to having automatic trauma responses. You are doing the right thing by seeking treatment. I wish you the best of luck! ❤️

      Good morning everyone. @Hannah Renee Congratulations on the name change. The process in our state is a little weird but at least changing your gender marker is easy peasy.   @MmindyI'm sorry to hear about your mishap and thankful you're, more or less, OK.   I know I've been pretty quiet here for a while. I've had a LOT of traumas surfacing. Thankfully, my GT actually specializes in trauma and since I'm in a holding pattern with my transition right now we decided to switch gears. I've come to find out that I'm full of automatic trauma responses. Just the simple action of my supervisor calling me into his office fills me with anxiety and triggers a fight or flight response. Just normal, everyday things are setting me off and I can't keep going like this anymore. It's going to be a long and emotionally painful process but it needs to be done. I can't keep running from my problems.

      Hi @Purple8. Welcome. Yes, I identify with your feelings. I think it is tough to "find" yourself when you identify as somewhere in the middle, such as non-binary. It's a process that for me, took time, and reflection, and writing about it and, yes, talking to a gender therapist, too. You're doing great by finding this TGP site. Keep coming. We're here all night. 💜 -- Davie

      You are in a pretty common place with a lot of us here.  We are not Gender Counselors, but almost all of us have been through Gender Counseling  and found that it really helped us.  When we tell the rest of the world that we are not their idea of what we should be and are going to be our own self, it can be a bit rough, but it is freeing.

      Hello everyone! I am a 32 year old person who was assigned male at birth. Generally fine with the pronouns he/they. Most of my life I have identified as a cis-man but lately have been really questioning how much that truly describes who I am. Throughout my life I have always had discomfort when I’ve been grouped with guys or asked to do things because I am a “man.” When I was a kid in school and I would be grouped with the boys I would always feel out of place. I used to justify this feeling because I’m gay and most of the boys I knew growing up were straight. Even as an adult now I feel pretty alien generally when I am around a group of typically straight men. As an adult I find myself pretty comfortable presenting pretty “masculinely.” But I still find myself experiencing a lot of friction when people have certain perceptions or expectations of me because of that presentation. And recently I have had interactions with a guy where while we were together he complimented how masculine and manly I was which felt incredibly uncomfortable to me. Which, has now lead me to self reflect and I feel I truly don’t relate to the terms masculine or manly other than my very surface level presentation. I also don’t consider myself really feminine. Though I do feel that with whatever feminine traits or qualities I do have, I really enjoy when those are complimented or affirmed. I definitely don’t identify as a woman, though. A couple weeks ago I finally was just like “maybe I am non-binary” and once I sat with that for a second and I realized I could just remove myself from having to wear the label of “man”, I felt as though a giant weight was being lifted off of me and it felt pretty amazing. So this is still very new for me. I’m still exploring this and have so far enjoyed the journey. Though, I do have a kind of imposter syndrome feeling as I still currently really am fine and enjoy presenting more masculinely (however sometimes with a little queer flair.) Really for me it’s mostly dealing with the general discomfort I feel from people’s expectations of me because they look at me and think “man.” Anybody with similar experiences?

      @Carolyn Marie Minor Confession -- I am in it as well.  I am in an unusually shy mood at the minute though.  I know, I know, not my usual self.
