    How to cover the beard

    Hair conditioner is really good. My routine is, a good facial scrub, hot water (leave the razor in the hot water) rinse facial scrub, apply a shaving gel, and shave as close as you can get. Don't rinse off, but apply a hair conditioner straight on to the face and massage in to the skin. I then brush my teeth and get the water as cold as I can get. Then rinse my face with as cold a water as I can get. Then apply a moisturiser for the day. Another tip is when you have brushed your teeth, run it over your lips, then apply a lip salve (Nivea do a pearl sheen which is good). This will exfoliate your lips and make them feel softer and more fuller. I also have had IPL in the past, but didn't finish the series (due to the huge cost at the time). I now have a home IPL system which I do every two weeks. It works best if you shave and then immediately after zap your face In regards to beard coverage, Dermablend is also a good product.

    Sooooooo....... The weekend is almost over here, it's been a strange kind of weekend. Went to see the new Mission Impossible, which I would say is worth seeing if only because the other option is Fantastic Four. If you have ever seen James Bond, Casino Royale (the latest version) or have seen anything with Tom Cruise in it before, it's probably worth just going down to your local video store or online provider and just watch one of those instead. There doesn't seem to be a great deal of options in terms of new material movies around. They are either reboots or recent movies or just nothing which is breaking the ground. Even the Stonewall movie is getting bad press for being historically inaccurate (wait! Hollywood re-writing history.....I am shocked). On the smaller screen I am just about to sit down and watch the second installment of I am Cait which has had mixed reviews. Will stick with it and see how things go, but I am not really a committed TV programme watcher. I tend to wait for it to come out on box set or just lose interest. Whilst we are on about Caitlyn, somebody sent a 'funny' joke on Facebook earlier.......not that funny to be honest. But probably typifies why there will always be issues with being seen as 'different'. Anyway, as promised, have uploaded a few pics I have taken around the city the past week or so. If you like them I'll try and add some more as i take them. Have a good week Take care c.xoxo

    The Girl at White Drift

    So this week has been an 'up and down' sort of week. Frustrations at work and generally getting annoyed at how I look has been the story of the week. One of the things I do enjoy though is getting out on my lunch break and taking photo's around the city, those little things that people generally walk past daily and fail to notice. So I have been out doing that. I will upload some photographs in the coming weeks. I've also managed to find myself a quiet place where I can go and get a coffee and generally be ignored and watch the world pass by. I suppose I should add a little more about me, so this is taken from my profile page on another site: I am a transgender female who will not be transitioning anytime in the near future. There I said it!For FAQs see bottom of profile!After a number of incidents in my childhood, which I let define me for too long I was fortunate enough to find someone who actually loves me for being me, and someone I could equally love back.I have had a lot of friends go through transition and lose their families and loved ones as a result. It would be psychologically detrimental for me to do that, having spent so long being neglected.Having spent so many years trying to be something I wasn't I legally changed my name to give me more of an androgynous feel and to help me be who I am on the inside.Educationally I am due to begin my Masters program shortly but as well as the more serious subject matter I have also taken night classes in Skin Care, Beauty and Make Up as well as dress making. My guilty pleasures are Art Galleries and Fashion Magazines.I am also a big fan of Twitter and more can be gleaned about me from https://twitter.com/TGcharlotte if you really must.Having moved from the UK, where I used to go out in Manchester I now find myself living in what I consider to be the best place in the world.It hasnt been an easy journey in my 40 years but I am now moderately at peace with myself.Obviously I still have those bad days but I have learnt to enjoy life as me.I am happy to support newbies so please feel free to message me.And that's just about me other than the regulatory 5'11 hazel eyes and bergundy hair Take care and be safeC.xoxoFAQs.Am I full time?I am a female in the wrong shaped body. I am full time in terms of being a human being who just happens to be female. Please understand, clothes are just clothes, wearing women's clothing doesn't make me a woman, my brain has first call on that.Do I like Men?No, I am not sexually attracted to men at all. I like women, confusing I know but try being me, or my wife, how do you even begin to define that relationship other than its a loving one.What will you talk about?Fashion, music, social and behavioral psychologyWhat won't you talk about?Anything to do with sex, sport or car engines

    Dear diary, so I appear to have been marooned on to this island somewhere in the Southern Hemisphere. Although there are tracks from other people it appears that I am still alone here. OK so a slightly dramatic entrance to the world of blogging, but I have been asked to try and avoid the self deprecation and trans-angst which is all too apparent in our own lives. So to help with my own therapy, and to avoid triggering depressive thoughts to others I will try and avoid getting in to myself too much. Of course there will be times when I am seriously, those times when I can't look in to the mirror and see me, or when I pass a window reflection and get confused at the 'other' person looking back, but I promise to try and keep it light and interesting when I can. My aim is to write on a weekly basis, talking about some of the things I have seen whilst making my way through a life which won't involve full transition or GRS; a kind of half life if you wish. Anyway, that's enough of an introduction. Read more as the week's progress and you'll probably get an idea about who I am and what my interests are. If you've dropped by and clicked to read, then thank you. I hope I have pricked some interest and I am honoured you have taken the time to read this far. Take care and be safe C.xoxo
