And vice versa, people buy this thing in an inexpensive store, people try to hide it. Doctor of Psychology Lebedev-Lyubimov AN Describes an interesting situation, which he watched during the pre-Christmas sales in Paris. Parisians coming out of the store "Tati" (there at this time you can buy at a great discount, useful and fairly high-quality goods), shifted the purchased goods to another package, and branded packaging packages of the chain of stores "Tati" thrown into garbage cans.

A woman loves diamonds and furs, men believe. However, they are right.

Fur has its own fashion. So, for example, a fur coat of Soviet time should be sound, that is thick and heavy. This was considered, for example, a caracul or wolf coat on a lining. The share of fur details usually was 60 - 70 percent, and the rest was for a lining, a heater, etc. Add to this the weight of a bag with documents or products - this is the whole chain mail obtained!

Today you can choose fur of any weight, densityAnd colors: mink, chinchilla, fur seal, sable, fox, deer, raccoon dog, fox, beaver, marten, rabbit, goat, marmot, ermine, nutria. But only to wear fur it is fashionable, then on the contrary: today many well-known personalities are protesting against wearing natural fur products, urging to protect animals and save them from violent death. For example, Pink, known for her quivering attitude towards our lesser brothers, was not too lazy and wrote a letter to the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Anne Wintour, with a request to stop popularizing furs in the pages of her world-famous publication. She also appealed to the British queen to help change the age-old tradition relating to the traditional uniform of the royal guard. According to the singer, to look like a "real Briton," you do not have to wear a headdress made from natural bear fur - you can and should use artificial fur to make the shakos that decorate the heads of the Guards.

Swing your eyelashes ... and everyone fell. The dream of every woman. Fortunately, modern cosmetics allows you to lengthen your eyelashes, make them saturated in color and fluffy. But there is a danger: an allergy. Despite the opinion, which says that to become a victim of allergies, including cosmetics, only people with sensitive skin can, in fact, no one is immune from this ailment.

The occurrence of allergies can result either in the use of substandard cosmetics, or in the individual intolerance of a particular component of the product. I made up my eyes, came to the party - and instead of an expressive cat's-eye, swollen red eyelids and tears in three streams. Men, you do not understand this!

And now a little bit of math. How many minutes a day do we spend to make up our eyes and take off our makeup? On average, 15 minutes. Count: 15 minutes * 365 days a year (let's take liberties, and suppose that every day of the year we do make-up) = 5 475 minutes! It's almost four days! A heroic sacrifice. Men, and you do not understand this!

No. 8: Sacrifice of one's own name
Every woman thought about the meaning of her name at least once in her life. Why did her parents give her that name?

Often parents call their children "in fashion," and it happens that a child becomes a victim of the originality of their parents.

Unusual names have been given to people from ancient times. Odiousness this tradition has reached after the Great October Revolution, when the names "synthesized" from various communist slogans and concepts. Now not everyone knows that parents have called their children seriously seriously by the name of Lenar (from the "Lenin Army"), Ivstal ("Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin").

The tendency to originality when choosing a name is notDied today. In Nizhny Tagil, parents named their daughter, who was born on Independence Day, short and clear - Russia. And another man named his daughter, who was born on the day of the Militia, just - the Militia.

Jennifer was named magazine "People" for 1997 among the 50 most beautiful people in the world.

# 10: Technology Victim
Today it's fashionable to be mobile: Have time to do a hundred things, visit a thousand places, have a million acquaintances. We barely have time to read the incoming mail, not to mention to answer each letter. We rarer and less often call our grandmothers, we walk, sing songs to the guitar. But we have cell phones, video recorders, dvd players, cd-changers, i-pods, handheld computers ... and you will not enumerate everything. But this is not enough for us either. We do not have enough time to even read the instructions to our own microwave. But why do you want a new phone with rhinestones?
