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.

Lifestyle enthusiasts feel Big Brother vibes

27th January 2023

This past weekend MultiChoice Botswana hosted media and lifestyle enthusiasts in Oodi for an evening of fun, drama and everything in between. The treat dubbed Big Brother Titans Botswana media challenge basically recreated the Big Brother experience right here in Botswana.

Big Brother Titans is the joint South African and Nigerian edition of the Big Brother franchise. The series follows contestants as they live in an isolated house and compete for a cash prize at the end of the show by avoiding being evicted from the house by the viewers.

These viewers vote their favorite housemates to stay on the show. The show features housemates from South Africa and Nigeria. The first season of the show premiered on January 15 2023 on DStv.

DStv Botswana Corporate Affairs Manager, Thembile Legwaila told WeekendLife that they saw it critical to host media friends to experience how it feels by being in the Big Brother house.

“For the very first time in history of Big Brother, we’ve seen the merging of two superpowers, Mzansi and Naija, with the Big Brother Titans season and what a better way to celebrate the monumental season than hosting our media friends.”

THE LOVE

Participants were treated to top notch reception complimented by the Oodi sunset which just blew them away. A special shuttle was organized from Gaborone to Oodi, at a farm house that is just incredible in terms of design, aesthetics and ambience.

Of course they were welcomed by soft cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages for those who are not drinkers, and the next booth was an opportunity for housemates to introduce themselves to the man of the house, Biggie. RB2’s new baby Mdu the Party played the role of Biggie, and he nailed the character.

Some of the contestants were asked what they will do with the grand prize of P5000. With my ongoing voluntary movement, #Pad4HER, I needed the cash prize to push the campaign.  #Pad4HER is a campaign that I started last year with an aim of helping female students from disadvantaged backgrounds to have access to sanitary towels. Anyway, luck was not on my side but my colleague from The Botswana Gazette, Gosego Motsumi emerged as the winner.

We got done with the questions and made way into the house. The party began with more drinks and the first challenge kicked off. For this particular challenge, we were divided into pairs. I was matched with Motsumi and we won the first challenge.

WINNING STRATEGY

Other housemates asked how we managed but it was simple: we had a strategy before embarking on the challenge. We sat down and debated on what we need to do in order to emerge victorious.

DStv engaged a phenomenal local chef, Rachel Tlagae who served some enchanting, light meal. Its Big Brother Titans so we ought to mind what we eat and also take note of quantities. Chefs also brought some wine to go with the meal and everyone was contented.

THE WINNING CHALLENGE

Housemates were taken through the last challenge: mental ability. This particular challenge needed them to know who they are as well as knowing their fellow housemates. It was one of the simplest challenges yet difficult. This is where I lost lot of points even though I was at the top (after winning the first challenge).

These housemates were all unique in their own way. From the media side was myself, Sharon Mathala, Leungo Mokgwathi, Gosego Motsumi and Nancy Ramokhua. This is a team which did exceptionally well altogether. Motsumi emerged as the winner, followed by Mathala and me on fourth position.

The third position was won by Loungo Pitse from influencer’s side, and he tagged alongside DJ Gouveia, Dato Seiko, Kedi Molosiwa and Gape Makwati.

Legwaila said “We wanted to have a healthy mix of traditional media (print and radio) as well as social media personalities, artists and content creators in the house. We chose individuals who were characteristically different from each other because variety and diversity is important to us. We of course chose those with outgoing personalities as well as those who are a little more introverted as we wanted the interaction to be authentic and organic. We wanted a solid group of individuals who represented the many different people that make up this beautiful country.”

DSTV IS COOKING SOMETHING

When quizzed if there are plans to have a similar Big Brother Titans Botswana, Legwaila said “MultiChoice Africa is focused on entertaining audiences all over Africa with the current Big Brother franchises; BB Titans, Mzansi and Naija. Though we have no immediate plans to have a Big Brother Botswana in the future, we are continuously looking at ways to entertain our Botswana audience with local content and we are excited for what’s to come in the next few weeks from our country.”

Botswana misses out on Miss Universe again

9th January 2023

The 71st Miss Universe competition will be going down at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center in New Orleans next week in the United States. There are eighty four entrants at this year’s Miss Universe, and Botswana will once again not be a part of the pageant.

The Miss Universe will be hosted by Jeannie Mai and Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo, who last served as host during Miss Universe 2020, while Mai last served as backstage correspondent during Miss Universe 2014. Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and Zuri Hall will serve as backstage correspondents. This will mark the first time in a 70-year history to have an all-female presenting panel.

Botswana last participated at the Miss Universe in 2013, in which the Miss Universe Botswana pageant was won by Tsoane Macheng. Ever since then, Botswana never made its return to the biggest beauty pageant in the world, despite its consistent ability to send a representative to participate at the Miss World competition.

Miss Universe Botswana Director, Safie Sekgwa, allegedly holds the Miss Universe license. Efforts to reach him proved futile, as his mobile phone rung unanswered.

Despite Botswana showing zero efforts in participating at the Miss Universe, the beauty pageants 2019 crown was flanked by two smaller diamonds cut from the same stoned mined in Botswana.

Jewelry designer Mouawad created a new “Power of Unity” crown reportedly worth 5 Million US Dollars, and the title was won by South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi. She was the third South African to be crowned Miss Universe.

BOTSWANA’S POOR RECORD AT MISS UNIVERSE

Botswana is said to be one African country with the most beautiful women, but, the poor performance at the Miss Universe, communicates otherwise. Perhaps, representatives at the pageant are not academically gifted, as the Miss Universe tests how keen they are also.

Mpule Kwelagobe made history when she was crowned Miss Universe 1999. That was few months after she was crowed the first ever Miss Universe Botswana. Kwelagobe became the third woman from Africa who was crowned Miss Universe.

In 2000, Miss Universe Botswana then, Joyce Molemoeng did not place at Miss Universe, and the same blue reality struck again in 2001, when Mataila Sikwane also failed drastically.

After a two year hiatus, Miss Universe 2004, Icho Keolotswe also failed to place at Miss Universe. That was the end of participation at Miss Universe, only to return in 2010. Tirelo Ramasedi, Miss Universe 2010 also did not win. The same losing trend followed from 2011 (Larona Kgabo), 2012 (Sheillah Molelekwa) and 2013 (Tsaone Macheng).

MISS UNIVERSE 2022 UNDERWAY

Preparations are ongoing to hold the 71st Miss Universe competition. Harnaaz Sandhu of India will crown her successor at the end of the event. There are nine countries which have withdrawn from participating: Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Morocco, Romania and Sweden.

As for returns, Miss Universe 2022 will see Angola, Belize, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Myanmar, Saint Lucia, Seychelles, Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago as well as Uruguay.

Lebanon won Miss Universe in 1971, Angola in 2011, Trinidad and Tobago in 1977 and1998. Youngest Miss Universe 2022 participants are aged 18, and they are from British Virgin Islands, Iceland and Krgyzstan and Switzerland’s representative is nineteen.

MISS UNIVERSE ALMOST 6 MILLION US DOLLAR CROWN

Miss Universe has unveiled its new crown for the 71st competition. The new crown, “The Crown Number 12: Force for Good” was crafted by world renowned luxury jeweler Mouawad.

The new crown, with pear-shaped blue sapphires surrounded by diamonds and valued at approximately 5.58 Million US Dollars, will be the prestigious mark of honor for the winner this coming week.

According to the Miss Universe organization, the Force for Good crown emanates Mouawad’s passion for crafting the extraordinary, featuring the meticulous setting of sapphires and diamonds, whose design is replete with symbolism.

Reflecting the point that significant change does not happen in an instant, the base of the crown is set with diamonds symbolizing the status quo. From the base upwards, rippling wave motifs reflect the momentum of change, with their varying sizes portraying that this momentum gains ground gradually through advocacy at different moments and places, to audiences large and small, over time.
