Contrary to the cliches, our desires are not that hard to understand and that difficult to realise

What do women want? According to the widely accepted view this is a question without an answer. It is believed that we struggle to decide what do we want and in the moment we finally have it we forget it completely and begin to obsess over something else.

Like all cliches this one holds some water. But the inability to choose and to be happy with your choice is a problem that affects the modern humans as a whole, not just women. We are facing so many opportunities and are overwhelmed by so many inspirational examples that we always feel unsatisfied.

When we look in depth we will discover that the desires of the modern woman are actually constant, stable and quite simple. A woman wants attention and affection, health for herself and her loved ones, good physical tone and inner harmony, young skin and shiny hair, a collection of clothes and pieces of jewellery that make her feel beautiful and good, the opportunity to realise her potential and friends with whom to enjoy life.

Realisation of this quite short list of wishes can appear hard to achieve, but truth is that with a little bit of luck and with the right kind of help it can become a reality. Particularly in the points regarding the good looks and inner harmony, fashion and accessories. Why? Because the world we live in provides us with the opportunity to choose between so many effective methods to stay in shape, to deal with our little imperfections, to rejuvenate ourselves and seek inner harmony, and of course, to own trendy clothes and accessories. The key word here is quality. Rely on it and you will never need to answer the question "What do I really want?".

The question of what women want and the inability to answer it conclusively are as old as the world. Or at least this is what popular culture has been trying to convince us. The truth is that women have always known what they wanted.

The Christmas and New Year's holidays are the time when we are free to concentrate on fulfilling our wishes and on everything that brings us pleasure.

The summer is coming, and with it our excitement increases. Our souls crave the caress of the sun rays and the sea, the light clothes and the journey that we can finally take on. But are our body, face, skin and hair ready as well?
It is often said that a woman’s soul is а complex mystery, difficult to solve, and the moods and de- sires of ladies are changeable, vague, and sometimes deprived of logic. It is true that women are differ- ent and everyone has her own individual longings.
To give or to receive presents? Some people prefer the former, others – the latter, yet others love to do both. What unites them all is that regardless of the occasion, the tradition fills the hearts of everyone involved with joy, happiness and warmth.
Gifts are one of the best ways to say "I love you" to the people we cherish. And the best time to do it, outside of special events in life, are the Christmas and New Year's feasts.
Summer is a special season. It is the only part of the year of which we think about long before it has arrived.
No matter if the winter in question has been mild. The very thought about the coming summer inevitably begins to excite us long before the season's actual beginning. The warmth! The vacation! The planning! The long days and the short nights!
Historians say that gifts are a pillar of human civilisation.
The Christmas and New Year's celebrations in 2020 will be as never before. Unlike other years, this December we will forget about the ease with which we planned trips, meetings with friends, parties and family gatherings. But this should not discourage us.
What do we, women, need to be happy?
They say you cannot buy happiness with money. It is true, in principle... until the moment when we see the shining eyes of our beloved one when they open the carefully packaged gift for a birthday, holiday or St Valentine.
