Designer Shoes For Fall 2005

Designer Shoes For Fall 2005

by: Catherine Olivia

If there’s one thing that can’t be denied it’s the relationship between a woman and her shoes. For me the highlight of any new season is the shoes. For Fall 2005 the designers are offering shoes that range from classic styles like flats, mules, sling backs and Mary Jane’s, to outrageous wedges and peep toe pumps on four inch heels. If you dare, some of these styles are available in dazzling colors, opulent fabrics and fun animal prints. There is something to please every shoe maven this Fall season.
Manolo Blahnik favors the use of animal prints such as zebra, leopard, cheetah, and black and white pony for his offering of pumps, sling backs and flats. A black suede mule is made even more frou-frou with a rabbit fur pom-pom...

Wedding Planning: Involve your Fiancé in 10 Easy S

Wedding Planning: Involve your Fiancé in 10 Easy Steps

by: Blake Kritzberg

He’s popped the question. You’ve chosen a date. And now, you’re swimming in a sea of euphoria with no horizons. Good thing, too, because there are literally a thousand things to arrange before the big day.
You do the research, buckle under and dive in. But you find your fiancé’s ardor for the event itself seems to have cooled. It’s not that he isn’t mad about marrying you; after all, he is a great guy, even if he can’t tell a Vera Wang from a Gunny Sack. It’s that his preparation style is hands-off, to say the least. And planning a wedding isn’t a job built for one.
So what to do? Here are ten ways to involve him without increasing both of your stress loads:
1) Delegate areas that have a prayer of interesting him...

So, You Want to be a Work at Home Mom

by: Caron Bush

But Where do you Start?
Right Here!!!!
#1 Plan
Before you sign up for anything, buy anything, do anything, you must plan. Ask yourself the important questions, like what do you want out of this and what are you passionate about.
#2 Prioritize
Many of us jump into things that we really can’t handle. Don’t get me wrong, we are all Super Mom!!! However, we need to know what is the most important to us, and how to fit all of the pieces together.
#3 Budget
Similar to time prioritizing, except with money. It is easy to spend all of your money at the beginning not thinking of this venture as long term. Or make the mistake of spending money you simply just don’t have. Let’s not forget why you are doing this...

Clip Earrings: A Pierce-Less Sense of Style

Clip Earrings: A Pierce-Less Sense of Style

by: Sam Serio

Pierced jewelry is all the rage among both the young and old, celebrities and commoners alike. But for various reasons, a person may be against ear piercings. It could be because ear piercings are a bit of a hassle, and then again it could be because body piercings are prohibited to a person because of religion or other constraints. Clip earrings are therefore very convenient and suitable for some people. Not everybody wants to be pierced, but everybody wants to be fashionable and chic.
Clip earrings are seldom uncomfortable, and even if one is not accustomed to wearing them, they are easy to get used to. These jewelry items are clasped onto the earlobe, then worn like regular pierced earrings...

SEX, Self esteem, and ME !

SEX, Self esteem, and ME !

by: Dorothy Lafrinere

I have touched on so many emotions in the past and I am still feeling the need to share yet another. I have spoken on women’s issues mainly, yet trying to keep men on a fair plain, mainly due to the facts and studies that more women experience self-esteem issues and jealousy monsters than men. Most of our emotions are gender friendly, except of course the ever so dreaded PMS and Menopause thingy. Although I have heard in passing that men do go through Menopause in a similar way. I will leave that for another article! (wink) If you have noticed throughout my blogs, that I have tried to remind everyone that I am speaking of both genders, even if I keep saying women. This is after all, a take off from my women’s self-esteem website.
I know you...

STOP! Reading the Headlines and Live Your Own Life

STOP! Reading the Headlines and Live Your Own Life First

by: Joanne Victoria

Imagine! 40 is old. The California State Supreme Court has said that when are you are 40, employers can discriminate against employees using this age as the excuse.
I attempt to ignore all headlines in the newspapers. I try not to react to how I feel when I read them.
I try I really do, but I cannot stop today.
It’s not new, but now, extremely blatant. I’m angry, but so what. That’s my problem. Let it go and move on.
I gave up that particular battle years ago. I became self-employed in various disguises. I chose to be in a business that did not discriminate because I was a woman.
In my last salaried position I was paid half the salary of the former male manager. Did more and received less...

How To Catch His Eye

How To Catch His Eye

by: Grace Chen

Yes, we all have experienced those nights when we walk into a party, club or bar and feel very insignificant. There’s always that one girl who stands out in the crowd. We all know her. We envy her. We all want to be her. She’s the one who has guys lining up to buy her a drink and never has to stand alone.
We all want to be this woman but how? It’s simple. We’ve already heard the cliché term “beauty comes from within” but the beauty within won’t get you that hot guy to notice you.
So now, we are faced with a challenge...

Mens Wedding Rings – Should a Man Wear One or Not?

Mens Wedding Rings – Should a Man Wear One or Not?

by: Peter Crump

Strange as it may seem the use of a wedding ring by men was not common until recently. Whereas women have worn wedding rings for eons, men have not. The use of rings as a symbol of everlasting love enshrined in marriage can be traced back thousands of years. But not so much for men.
It was, in fact, during the second world war that the use of wedding rings by men became more common. (Note that mens wedding rings and mens wedding bands are interchangeable, both meaning the same thing.)
It became the custom for US soldiers going to war to publicise their marital status by the wearing of a man’s wedding ring...

Mama’s Dilemma: It’s Girls-Night-Out and You’re Ad

Mama’s Dilemma: It’s Girls-Night-Out and You’re Addicted to Sweats

by: Sandra Mahoney

As usual you’ve got minutes to get ready before heading out the door. You throw back a sip of coffee, brush your teeth, and:

Wrestle into a sweatshirt to match your flannel pajama bottoms;
Fasten yourself into paint spattered sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt; or
Slide into your ‘I hope nobody I know sees me in these’ jeans and ‘should have been thrown out already’ sweatshirt.

If any of the above answers sounded like you Mama, it’s a fact; having children put your fashion sense on the back burner. Most moms are more concerned with how their children look than themselves...

Why Most Women’s Self-Defense Programs Are Wrong

Why Most Women’s Self-Defense Programs Are Wrong

by: Jeffrey Miller

In the world of women’s self-defense training, there are two generally accepted “schools” of thought. Unfortunately, both take extreme viewpoints and are usually founded on nothing more than the so-called “expert’s” beliefs. Without real-world experience, and instructor teaching self-defense to anyone, but especially to women, is quite likely putting their students in severe danger.
***************************************************
Women’s self defense issues are constantly in the news and a ‘hot’ topic for conversations. It seems that everyone from police officers to karate instructors has his or her own philosophy and theories about the how’s and why’s of self defense for women and girls.
The truth is though, that many...

Petite Clothing – Misconceptions

Petite Clothing – Misconceptions

by: Bowe Packer

One of the the many misconceptions about petite sizes is that you have to be some tiny little thing to qualify. It is almost a conspiracy if you think about it, just ask anyone in the department stores and you will find they aren’t purvey as to what clothing petite size actually represents or means. So, if the young lady at the clothing store doesn’t know then who does?
In truth the designation petite size refers to height, not girth: so, with that said, women under 5′ 4″ are considered petite, no matter if there size is 24 or 4. This obviously raises many questions when women are out searching for petite clothing.
For instance, although many shorter women’s main concern is about how womens petite size clothing is going to fit...

To Honor Mothers: Song Remembers Mom ‘Forever’

To Honor Mothers: Song Remembers Mom ‘Forever’

by: Neal R. Voron

In the spirit of Mother’s Day, two songwriters are sharing with the world their lyrics to a song that commemorates and celebrates a mother’s love.
Lyricists Neal R. Voron and Joseph F.M. Pokorny, of Philadelphia, PA, hope that children, both young and old, who read the words to "We Thought She’d Live Forever" will use the opportunity to re-connect with their feelings about and relationship with their mother and others who have been special to them throughout their lives.
The song, written primarily by Voron and modified and put to music by Pokorny, is a wistful reflection upon the loss of a mother for whom "time had cast… much too short a line".
"We thought we were so clever, we thought she’d live forever," the song laments t...

Choosing a Wedding Date – When You’re Feeling Indecisive

by: Blake Kritzberg

He – or she – asked, and you answered. Now’s the time to bask in the romance, and enjoy the first phase of your new life together. But soon, you’ll need a response for that timeless question: “when’s the wedding?”
For some couples, it’s easy – they know just when they want to tie the knot. For others, it’s less clear. After all, you have a lot of options. Even more than you might think, since it’s really not necessary to get married on a Saturday. Friday and Sunday afternoons are good choices too, and less expensive.
So if you’re looking at the calendar ahead and seeing a hundred alternatives, all about equally attractive, here’s how to narrow them down.
