Just Do It

Just Do It

by: Yolanda Shoshana

In our society people can name a hundred reasons or shall I say “excuses” why they should not do something that they dream of doing, while finding one good reason is hard to find. We have become a culture full of dreamers, “one day I am going to…” We have become scared of taking a risk for fear of failure and continue to wait for the right time to pursue our goals.
What are you waiting for? There will never be anyone who gives you permission to go for what you want. It is up to you to begin to seize the day. The right time is NOW. Get rid of the “should haves” and “could haves” There is no reason why someone else is living out your dream except for the fact that they decided to take action. Just Do It!

Cellulite: The Biggest Female Epidemic

by: Beth Scott

Cellulite is probably one of the most embarrassing of all physical faults that women have.
Cellulite isn’t just a problem with the obese or overweight either. Normal sized and even skinny women suffer from cellulite as well!
It has been surveyed that 90% of ALL women have cellulite somewhere on their bodies. That leaves only a small 10% who are actually free from this problem.
Now before you start hating those women’s guts for being so lucky, you should ask yourself what you can do to get rid of your cellulite so that you will be a part of that 10%.
Eventually as enough women begin to solve this cellulite problem and rid themselves of cellulite, the 10% who are free from cellulite will grow to 15% and the 90% who suffer from cellu...

800cc Breast Augmentation Translating the Jargon and Getting the Breasts You Want

by: Jeff Lakie

Many women say that they would like bigger breasts without really considering precisely what ‘bigger’ means to them. Even the ones who know exactly the look they aspire to – and have seen it modelled perfectly on their favorite celebrity – think in the terms that have been familiar to women since they bought their first training bra: cup size. But when it comes down to the nitty gritty of breast augmentation, surgeons generally use different terminology, and while the words ‘800cc breast augmentation’ means something very specific to a plastic surgeon, the women that the things are going into are thinking, ‘What on earth?’
Many women, when contemplating breast surgery, have a particular vision ...

Matching jewelry for mommy and baby is always a cute touch, and it can be a keepsake for when the baby is all grown up. The sentimental value that comes with baby jewelry cannot be measured. Sometimes certain items of jewelry come with memories; like this bracelet one was bought right after little Sarah took her first steps, or this pendant was bought soon before Davey started to say his first words.

Candle Burning to Petition the Male Saints

Candle Burning to Petition the Male Saints

by: Sam Stevens

Last NAN I explained how to petition the female Saints with special requests. This time around I’ll provide some instruction on how to ask to be put in the cosmic care of the Male Saints . These are very ancient pagan rituals, which have been popularized by the Christian Church. The basic methodology is to put your request under the appropriately coloured candle on the suggested day of the week along with an image of the Saint (which you can often find on the Internet) and/or a symbol or emblem that represents the Saint.
Saint Anthony of Padua
On a Tuesday burn a brown candle for special requests, a green candle for financial help or an orange candle to find a husband. St...

How to Reduce the Appearance of Age Spots

How to Reduce the Appearance of Age Spots

by: Brian Fong

Age spots are mainly caused by long-term sun exposure. Although sun is the number one reason for developing age spots, smoking, a poor diet, poor liver function, and a diet rich in oxidized oils are also contributing factors.
These age spots are a result of the overproduction of lipofuscin, a dark substance produced by our cells. Age spots usually begin appearing when we are in our 30’s and, besides being unsightly, increase our risk of skin cancer. As is the case with most skin conditions, age spots are easier to prevent than to treat. Eating a diet rich in green leafy vegetables, carrots, yams, and other foods that are high in carotene will help reduce your chances of getting age spots in the first place...

Get The Bling Without The Sting – Affordable Engagement Rings

by: Alex Miller

Just because you don’t have a lot of money doesn’t mean you can’t find an affordable engagement ring that looks like it cost a fortune.
Tips on getting more diamond for your dollar when choosing an affordable engagement ring
First, the diamond shape you choose can help make your ring look like it’s worth a lot more than you really paid. A marquise-shaped diamond, for example, looks larger than a round diamond.

Feng Shui Guidlines for Storage Spaces

Feng Shui Guidlines for Storage Spaces

by: Stephanie Roberts

Professional organizers and helpful-hint sources often recommend storage solutions such as shelves above doors and in corners, hooks on the backs of doors, and peg-board or tools and small appliances. They are masters at maximizing every square inch of a closet with bins, baskets, shelf dividers, and multiple hanging rods. What they don’t realize is that, from a feng shui perspective, these techniques can cause as many problems as they solve.
For good feng shui, it’s important to leave some of your storage space unused, for doors to open all the way, and to aim for visual simplicity. As you work toward achieving the organizer’s dream of a place for everything and everything in its place, keep these guidelines in mind:

Top 10 Fashion Mistakes: What NOT to Wear

Top 10 Fashion Mistakes: What NOT to Wear

by: Julie Gabriel

Image includes everything that is in your appearance – not simply how well you put your makeup on and style your hair, and not just how expensive is your bag, but also how well you put all these things together. Sometimes a tiny flaw can ruin the carefully concocted look. Don’t let that happen to you.
Fashion Mistake #1. Skirt too skimpy.
The skirt should not rise up to mid-thigh when you sit down. If you have to pull it down constantly then maybe it is too short or too tight. Make it a rule of thumb to keep the skirt for daytime attires maximum an inch above the knee.
Fashion Mistake #2. Silly, not cute.
Avoid frilly blouses when you don’t party...

Is “Earning a Living” Stopping You?

Is “Earning a Living” Stopping You?

by: Stacey Mayo

Every year, people resolve that THIS New Year will be different: “This will be the year that I write that book, start that new venture, double my income, take more time off to spend with my family,” and the list goes on and on. However, when people think about pursuing their dreams, they often squash the idea because it doesn’t seem practical.
Does this sound familiar? You have a dream, but are afraid that if you pursue it, you would risk giving up what you already have. It is easy to put it off to a later date — a time when there will be more money, more time and/or when the kids have graduated from college. However, there is never a time when everything in your life is perfect for carrying out your goals...
