Why do men like curvy women? Most men when asked are not impressed by those skinny models in magazines that most people see as perfect? It is not a secret that many men prefer a woman with a few extra pounds.
They say women who have more cushion can tend to appear younger- and not just men can agree on that. It seems to ring true that super skinny women can appear older because they do not have plump skin that helps hide wrinkles.
This is according to an online lifestyle magazine The Talko. The Talko serves 72 million readers worldwide and provides news on product launches, fashion must-haves-plus the biggest hits and misses in the world of health and fitness. Nonetheless, The Talko said women with more flesh can hide their age better and do not appear to have as many fine lines. Who wouldn’t want that? There is nothing more satisfying than hitting a night on the town and being asked to show some I.D because you look young. If having a round wear face with a little more skin does this to you, sign me up!
The blog emphasised that women have been trying forever to find ways to make them stay looking younger and fresh, and lucky for you, you get to save your money because you have that done for you naturally. So instead of standing in the mirror and pulling back that extra skin, embrace it girl because women pay lots of money to look as young as you!A curvaceous babe is a sexy one to a man because she looks just like that: a babe! A woman! In a man’s eye, women are supposed to have curves because they should look more feminine than a man.
The Talko said women should have larger lips, bigger butts, and fuller upper bodies because if they don’t, they look more like a little kid than a sexy woman. And honestly, who wants a woman who is still shopping in the kids section? The same way a woman doesn’t want to be with a man who still shops in the kids section because he is either too short or too skinny, the same goes for women.A woman who is able to show off her beautiful curves in a fitted elegant dress is more appealing to any man. It shows confidence, and you look put together. A woman in a form fitting dress showing off her curves is way more attractive to men.
Further, it was underlined that men have been into curvy women for a long time now, and it still says the same today because they enjoy that classic look. A curvy woman with a body that is noticeable and not too thin or frail is sexy and has been for decades now, making it a thing men continue to get heated over time and time again.Marilyn Monroe was one of the sexiest women of her time, and she was not a seize 2. If you look at celebrities now, it is the curvier types like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce who are making headlines for their shape.
Being model thin is a thing of the past, and no man wants to be with a woman like that. A curvy woman is classic and timeless, whereas stick thin is only a phase. When a man is with his woman, he wants people to be thinking how classic and beautiful she looks, and not have people thinking the opposite. While women might believe the opposite, they might as well think again.While ladies might like their clothes to be a little loose on them- men prefer clothes to fit on their shape, showing off their curves the best way possible. A man likes to see a woman in a fitted dress that emphasizes what she has underneath. The bigger size just makes them look bigger and that’s exactly what men want. Women need to be able to embrace their curve and the only way they can do that is by not being afraid of clothes that show it all off! The second they start wearing clothes that hug them in all the right places, that confidence they gain, everyone else will feel it too.
The Talko also stressed that women who have more meat on their bones tend to look healthier in a man’s eye. She doesn’t look like she’s constantly trying the new fad diet but instead looks well-nourished and happy. And who wants to try the new fad diet anyway? Eating right shouldn’t have to be about trying what’s hot right now, it should be a lifestyle. A diet is temporary, but eating right and embracing the curves you have because of it is for life! Many female athletes, like the Williams sisters, embrace their curvier bodies. Sure, they are constantly active and must live a very healthy lifestyle, but they still aren’t stick thing. And that’s Ok. A curvier woman has curves that are noticeable and isn’t afraid to flaunt them, making her not only healthy on the outside but in the inside, too. Strong is the new sexy.
A woman who has curves and isn’t a stick figure clearly isn’t afraid of eating, and men love that. They don’t usually like going out with a girl who only eats a salad or doesn’t eat at all. Men want a sexy woman who isn’t afraid to get dirty eating a monster burger while downing a craft beer (or three). And who are we kidding? Sometimes we are craving grub and want to sink our chompers into a nice juicy burger. Not every woman likes to eat a salad. And honestly who genuinely enjoys them? It takes longer to make them than to eat them, and the most delicious salads aren’t all that healthy anyway. So live it up and eat whatever it is your body is craving. Now we aren’t saying you should be eating McDonalds every day, Chicken Licken or Debonairs Pizza just because it’s what you want, but there are healthy ways that allow you to indulge. So girl, please start eating or forever be single.
Men are drawn to curvier women because they look more fertile than the skinnier girls. And while they might not be looking to have a kid anytime soon, chances are the time will come and they will want to settle down with the right woman who can bear plenty of children. When that time comes, he knows his curvy gal is the one who will do just that. Your curves are a sign of fertility. What do you think hips were made for? Obviously to support your baby while trying to multitask. Your curves are ready for the greatest gift of all. Have you ever seen a pregnant skinny woman? They look like they are going to fall over. Luckily for you, you will be able to look healthy and natural because your curves support you during this time of your life. Who wants to feel like they will tip over during pregnancy anyway?
When a woman is too thin, she might appear too weak and therefore not able to handle things in the bedroom- or at least that’s what many man tend to think. They want to be gentle with a skinny girl because they are almost afraid of breaking her, but a thicker woman? Now, that’s a woman that can handle getting tossed around on the bed a few times. You wouldn’t want your man to be in his bed the whole time while you two are together, wondering if he pulls a certain move, you’ll break.
A man enjoys a strong woman both inside and outside of the bedroom, and your curves prove just that. Intimacy is supposed to be natural, seamless, and if he isn’t afraid of hurting you, the better your time in the bedroom will be! Really, I don’t see anything wrong with that.
After its initial outbreak with a cluster of pneumonia cases at a seafood, poultry and live wildlife market in Wuhan City, China, Covid-19 has spread rapidly across the globe. The virus has hammered economies worldwide and brought devastation to many.
On 16 September Shincheonji Church of Jesus, a church with thousands of members in various countries, held a global online prayer service to pray for the victims of the coronavirus and their families, healthcare workers, government officials and for the complete eradication of and cure for Covid-19.
The virtual prayer service was live-streamed to the entire congregation with more than 200,000 members in countries all over the world participating, including the USA, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Australia, South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
In keeping with social distancing, health protocols and protecting its members from possible exposure to the coronavirus, Shincheonji arranged the virtual gathering for members to pray together in safety and set an example for others.
Prayers were mainly for the healing of those infected with the virus, for overworked healthcare workers who are struggling to fight Covid-19, and for people in economic distress in the wake of the pandemic. The overwhelming online participation from its members worldwide showed the desire and urgency to end this virus and for healing and restoration in communities.
The Chairman of Shincheonji Church Mr Manhee Lee suggested this online virtual gathering and said that all believers will continue to pray at the church’s worship services until the complete eradication of the coronavirus.
At least 1,700 of the church’s South Korean-based congregation have donated their blood plasma for research around an effective treatment. Convalescent plasma has also showed promise as therapy for Covid-19 and is believed to have reduced the severity of symptoms in critical patients.
“In order to defeat Covid-19, we need to embrace, love, and unite,” as global citizens, the church said. “We wanted to do all we can as believers by praying for the people working to prevent the spread of the virus and healthcare workers who are working at the frontlines of this battle against Covid-19 and we believe that God will answer our earnest prayers.”
The annual prestigious music awards, African Muzik Magazine Awards and Music Festival (AFRIMMA), has resumed this year. But this time around with a virtual version of it.
The awards that celebrate the originality of African music has unveiled their seventh edition. The awards seek to promote the African talent by bringing together on the same stage African legendary artists to celebrate African culture.
The event was established by the International Committee of AFRIMMA, in collaboration with African Union to reward and celebrate musical works, talents and creativity around the African continent while promoting the African cultural heritage amongst African countries.
However after the Covid-19 global pandemic, the event will not be hosted on a live global stage, but it will be hosted virtually and nominees are expected to deliver their performances virtually. The AFRIMMA Virtual Awards 2020 is set to be the first of its kind in the African music world with performances coming from different artists around the world and audience catching the performances, speeches and award presentations on multiple streaming devices.
Amongst the many who are nominated by the AFRIMMAs is local sensation Vee Mampeezy who has been nominated in the category for Best Male Southern African alongside music giants, Black Coffee- South Africa, Slap Dee – Zambia, Cassper Nyovest- South Africa, Master KG- South Africa, Jah Prayzah – Zimbabwe, Vee Mampeezy – Botswana, Shyn – Madagascar, Tshego- South Africa, Tha Dogg – Namibia and Yanga Chief – South Africa.
Mampeezy has established with WeekendLife that prior to that, he had received an email from AFRIMMA confirming his nomination. They wished for him to perform which he said he will confirm the performance first with his manager, but as for now he is not sure if he will be performing.
“We have accepted the nomination. It is such an honour to be nominated alongside music giants like Black Coffee. I am very excited, others I am not as excited to be nominated alongside them because I have been nominated before with them. I do not mean to say they are not great, they are great in their respective right,” he said.
“We should be excited as a country that Botswana has been nominated as well. Before anything else, the fact that we are there as nominees makes us winners. It is such an honour to be recognised more so that Botswana is a small country with a very small population.”
Famous and most decorated artists the likes of Diamond Platnumz, Mr Flavour, Harmonize, Davido and Jah Prayzah are also amongst the nominees. However, South African based artist affectionately known as Master KG has been nominated six times for Video of the year, Best Male Southern Africa, Artist of the year, Best Collaboration as well as song of the year.
Master KG’s song ‘Jerusalem’ has been making waves internationally, and it was used mostly during the pandemic to shake off the Covid-19 anxiety. The song was nominated after South African Music Awards (SAMA) failed to nominate the young talented artist.
The Queen does this through school tours, tree planting activities, street campaigns, coastal clean ups, speaking engagements, shopping mall tours, media guesting, environmental fairs, storytelling programs to children, eco-fashion shows, and other environmental activities.
Even though this auspicious year has been faulted by the COVID-19 crisis, Miss Earth Botswana 2020 Seneo Perry has seen this as a chance to fix her crown, and get dirty in conserving the environment. This is highly impressive as it expresses how dedicated she is not only in wearing the crown, but putting in some work to create a better greener world.
Perry is a Botswana based environmentalist, equipped with a degree in Entrepreneurial Business Leadership from Sheffield Hallam University (BAC) and a top 5 finalist in Miss Earth Botswana 2019. As an eco-warrior at heart, she has dedicated her time and energy towards educating and empowering the next generation on the importance of preservation and careful management of the environment and natural resources (a clean and safe environment.)
Miss Earth Botswana will be hosting SOS Children for a film documentary dubbed “Into the Okavango” on Saturday 19th September, in Tlokweng. This initiative is influenced by National Vision 2036 Pillar of National Values which is our identity, our unique natural and cultural resources, tolerance of diversity as well as national values constitute a value preposition that makes Botswana a place to live, work and do business.
In an exclusive interview with WeekendLife, Perry’s Manager, Shimah Keakopa, said the purpose of this event is to encourage the children to open up their minds a bit more to think outside the box as they are about to choose their career paths and what more they can offer to their country as upcoming young leaders.
“This event is held under the theme ‘‘Botswana will have healthy ecosystems that support the economy, livelihoods and our cultural heritage as well as enhance resilience to climate change’’. We strive to help young children grow up knowing their purpose in life and what they actually do in achieving their ambitions.”
For her part, the queen said since 2013, conservation topics have always attracted her interests towards achieving a clean and safe environment for the benefit of humanity. She said “Botswana relies heavily on the tourism industry as it contributes 7 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Our tourism industry has been characterized as more of a fauna and flora type, which is the great attraction to local and international tourists.”
“Therefore it is imperative that we conserve and continuously engage in environmental issues, to preserve our untouchable pristine wilderness. Furthermore people who live closest to natural resources generally absorb the greatest cost associated with conservation,” she said.
Perry told WeekendLife that a lot still needs to be done to ensure everybody is of one mind in an effort dedicated towards environmental conservation, which not only benefits the flora and fauna but the economy as well through activities such as agriculture and tourism.
“In Botswana, there still not enough policies (some outdated) and public awareness towards environmental conservation, especially the collective effort that should exist between government, private sector and Non- Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
Whereas members of the general public do not have adequate access to the information on the importance of environmental conservation and this results in them being unaware of the best practices and standards in environmental conservation,” she said.
When she is not impressing at beauty pageants, Perry is a Managing Director of “Restoring the Prime Colour of the Earth” a charitable organization established in 2019 with the objective to educate both young and old people the importance of keeping a clean and safe environment and to restore the breath-taking landmarks in Botswana.
