Welcome Readers!

Welcome to the Mystic Blog of the only Mystic Nymph! I hope you have a blast reading my thoughts, and I hope you drop by again!

I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.

For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

GT: A New Word


I love learning about new terminologies to enrich my word bank. Forgive me for the word, but lust for words big time! It's not what you deem it is, but I think I'm just so obsessed about them, that I even tried rewriting my whole Merriam-Webster's Dictionary when I was still in the sixth grade. Not kidding. That's for real. I also have some notebooks full of all the figurative speech and idioms that I've came across. I guess that's just what most writers do to enhance word power.

So in lieu of that, I have to talk about a new word that I just encountered. Funny because I have been thinking of posting something like this just this morning while taking a bath. Then, when I logged in my blog, this topic from Girl's Talk welcomed me. Such a coincidence indeed, I swear. The universe definitely conspired for me to write about the word COSMOPOLITE.

I know it's not a difficult word at all, but to be honest, It was just recent that I got to know about its meaning. We're all familiar with COSMOPOLITAN, right? It only means sophisticated, cultured or polished. Cosmopolite, on the other hand, is a less common term for cosmopolitan. They convey the same thing, it's just that cosmopolite involves the act of globe-trotting because it means someone who travels widely and often. It could also signify a person who is wordly-wise.

With that, I would like to introduce to you the next attraction in my niche called COSMOPOLITE, not in travels but in fashion. In this blog series, I will feature the different fashion statements, and also some tiny bits of stories of the people I personally know here, there and everywhere. This will be more like a style spot item here in Mystic Nymph.

So, if you want to show off what you've got and be in the virtual spotlight, look for me and let's get down to business. No worries cause this is for FREE. Feelingera naman ako kung may bayad. LOL! See you soon cosmopolites! Much love.

That's a new word for me, I haven't encountered anyone mentioning Cosmopolite in a convo, a book, article, etc. lol Thanks for sharing!

And you mentioned I looked familiar to you? Haha maybe we've bumped into each other before. Perhaps at MTS or somewhere downtown. Or maybe at my shop, at Dona Segunda lol

Cheers!

Hmmm... Uncommon word it is! Thanks for sharing this. This isn't so easy to forget compared to words shared that aren't English! :)

As for me, I learned the word "ICHI" this week, thanks to my teaching daughter! Lol. Hope to see you at my entry if you got a chance! ;-)
