Lingerie keeps love affairs alive

Lingerie plays an important role in today’s relationships and to a woman’s dignity. In this era, people are exposed to easily fall into routines due to their lifestyles. It helps to keep sensuality active in the relationship, as there is no reason to wait for a special occasion to use it.

According to Honey B, men will always appreciate a good garment of lingerie, for them it is an invitation of sensuality, of flirting, of keeping the spark active in the relationship. In the same way, a woman feels sexy and confident when she is courted. Honey B cleared a myth that lingerie is used only on special occasions, saying lingerie has become a fundamental piece for couples, it helps both women and men to maintain the fire that every relationship needs.

Lingerie brings sensuality, security and curiosity to explore beyond the relationship, away from a routine probability. Today, women understand that sexy is synonymous with security and it does not depend on a perfect body, it is enough to feel confident. Lingerie is just as important as outer garments if not more important. There is just something proactively alluring about lacy panties touching against skin and a bra hugging the body. Lingerie is intimate and emotional. It instils sexy and confidence.

It repairs broken marriages and it is more than just a fabric- it can be an alter ego. It definitely makes a woman feel sexy, Honey B designated. The ladies lifestyle blog emphasised that lacy panties, push up bras, stockings, garter belts, corsets, bustier and thongs give that extra little boost of confidence. Wearing lingerie underneath clothing makes a woman to feel more like a woman. It celebrates sexuality no matter what size she is. It makes the woman feel excitingly appealing. Honey B believes that sexy is not the way someone looks but the way someone feels. Lingerie gives women an extra pep in their step.

Being a woman is not about looking like one; being a woman is about feeling like one. Lingerie helps women feel feminine. The lace decorates and accentuates a woman’s beauty. Snugly fit piece help accentuate her curves. Lingerie brings confidence and can captivate admirers. Women have the power to have an entire room stare at them. Lingerie reminds her that being feminine makes her strong, Honey B said.

Another reason why lingerie is important is how much support it provides. Push-up bras and sports bras keep everything in place. Push-up bras lift the bust up to prevent sagging. Push-up bras also help to keep the breasts together so they appear larger. Sports bras move all the support and weight of the bust towards the back. This results in less jiggling of the bust when running.

Underwear such as thongs and cheekies, help the buttocks appear bigger since it does not cover it fully. Hip huggers and briefs cover more while keeping everything compact. Honey B noted that hip huggers start at the hip so they are more of a sexy feel while still providing coverage at the back. Briefs provide the most coverage. These are recommended for women who have more ‘’junk in the trunk’’, an attribute many shouldn’t be ashamed of; if it needs to be covered, briefs will do the trick while holding more in one place.

Garter belts are beautiful function garments that keep stockings from riding down the legs, Honey B stated. Corsets and bustiers are an extension of a bra to help keep an hourglass figure. This is because of all the boning in the seams. Baby dolls could be defined as a bra with a dress. This is explained to be a sexy little dress for a special night. Teddies are fitted bodysuits that make the body appear slimmer and sexier. These are usually transparent to show off that feminine beautiful body. So, lingerie isn’t just ‘’sexy’’; it also has detailed functions.

After being together for a long time, some people in marriages and relationships lose their spark. The connection weakens and the passion fades. Lingerie can restore a boring relationship into something exciting. Relationships and marriages can get boring if the same thing happens day to day. Lingerie such as baby dolls, teddies or garter belts can create a sexy surprise for a partner. Lingerie reignites passion with novelty. Things that were once boring can be fun again!

Honey B advised that lingerie is more than just clothing. It can showcase a woman’s personality. It helps define a woman as beautiful, feminine, strong and elegant. It creates a sense of excitement every time she puts it on. It is a bold sexy wrapped in black and red lace. For others, it is a freeing sexy adorned with pink and white lace.

Lingerie comes in different pieces for different personalities. Lace bras and panties are for when a woman is feeling confident and bold. Comfort bras are for when a woman wants to feel beautiful in her skin but also sexy. Some women prefer laced lingerie over non-laced counterparts depending on her preferences. Lingerie shows personality.

According to Honey B, lingerie is more than just important to a woman. It is important to those around her. It shows who a woman is- her preferences, desires, dreams and fantasies. Well styled, striking and sexy lingerie can give woman oodles of confidence so she is able to carry herself with panache. One can actually determine the feelings of a woman through the lingerie that she is sporting.

200,000 Members of International Church Hold Virtual Prayer Service for Covid-19

22nd September 2020
200,000

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.”

22nd September 2020
Vee-Mampeezy

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.

Miss Earth Botswana catwalks to save the environment

22nd September 2020
MISS EARTH

Miss Earth Botswana is an annual local environmental-themed beauty pageant competition promoting environmental awarenessconservation and social responsibility. The reigning Queen dedicated her year to promoting specific projects and often addressing issues concerning the environment.

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.
