The Truth About Home Made Facials

The Truth About Home Made Facials

by: Janice Wee

I started making facial masks after reading several books on natural cosmetics. Common ingredients used in home made facials are eggs, lemon, milk, honey, cucumber, tomato, essential oils and lots more fruits, herbs and other ingredients.
The assumption I had was that home made cosmetics, being all natural and preservative free were much safer than the commercial masks you found in stores. A wrong assumption. You know the saying. Never assume anything. It makes an ASS of U and ME. Did you know some of the deadliest poisons on earth are 100% natural?
There are complaints about preservatives irritating the skin and all that. That may be true especially for a person with very sensitive skin...

Breast Reduction – Cosmetic Surgery

Breast Reduction – Cosmetic Surgery

by: T.Going

Breast Reduction – Cosmetic Surgery
Breast reduction procedures are becoming more and more popular these days. This surgery is known as mammaplasties.
Large breasts can cause various medical problems due to the excessive weight on the chest in addition to skeletal deformities and sometimes breathing problems. Disproportionately large breasts can also lead to extreme self-consciousness.
Breast reduction is designed for women with these problems. The procedure removes particular amounts of fat, glandular tissues and skin from each side of the breasts. This allows the breast to become smaller, lighter and more firm. The surgery also can reduce the size of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple).
The goal of the breast reductio...

Don’t Sell Grandma’s Jewelry at a Yard Sale…What

Don’t Sell Grandma’s Jewelry at a Yard Sale…What’s It Worth?

by: JoAnna Gilford

IDENTIFICATION
Before you can find out what a piece of jewelry is worth, you need to find out what it is. This can be as simple as turning it over and finding a maker’s mark or complicated as in “hours of research”. First thing first: Examine your jewelry for a maker’s mark. Look on the back or on the clasp. Thoroughly examine every inch of the piece. If you see a maker’s mark, start your research! Not finding a maker’s mark doesn’t mean it’s not valuable, on the contrary; many fine pieces of jewelry were never marked. It does mean you will need to put in a little more effort in research.
If you received your jewelry from a family member, ask them about it’s history...

The Image Of Women

The Image Of Women

by: Rose DesRochers

Mass media and the killing campaign.
Well it is certainly not old news that sex is what sells. I’m sick of advertisers using women to sell their products. Women are included in the traditional role of sex object in magazines, commercials, videos, TV, advertisements, etc. Media has made women obsessed with the way that we look. Women seen in advertisements and media are often seriously underweight. The average fashion model weighs 25 percent less than the average woman?
You would have to wonder just what a well known fast food company was selling, when they put images on them of a woman holding a salad. Well thank you Mickey D’s for acknowledging that women have breasts...

Rabbit Jewelry: A Sign of Refinement

Rabbit Jewelry: A Sign of Refinement

by: Sam Serio

There is a certain delight that comes with the sight of rabbit jewelry. The motif is cute and cuddly, and the person wearing it may often be seen as fun to be with, whimsical and affectionate.
In this day and age, a person wearing rabbit jewelry was likely born in the year of the Rabbit, according to Chinese mythology. Actually, on the subject of the Chinese calendar, when we get down to technicalities, there is no Year of the Cat: legend has it that when the Lord Buddha was summoning the animals of the 12 major branches of the zodiac so he could give them unique talents, the Cat was unable to attend. Due to mix-ups over the centuries, some people born in the year of the Rabbit believe they were born on the year of the Cat.

Dietary Precautions During Pregnancy

Dietary Precautions During Pregnancy

by: Beverley Brooke

When you are pregnant, you should be sure to wash all raw vegetables prior to consumption. Raw vegetables have the potential to carry toxoplasmosis, which is a parasite that is typically carried in the feces of cats. It can sometimes get into the soil and contaminate fruits or vegetables.
Many women are interested in trying natural alternatives to medications during pregnancy. Some turn to herbal remedies. It is important that you consult with your healthcare provider during pregnancy to ensure that an herb is safe before you take it. Some herbs can be harmful to you or your unborn fetus, and result in premature labor, miscarriage or even birth defects. Some of the more commonly known herbs to avoid during pregnancy include:

Dating/Relationships

Dating/Relationships

by: Steve Sokolowski

I run a blog where I discuss the topic of the many games people play in the dating arena. I’ve posted hundreds of articles, many of which point out many of the troubles between men and women. Even if you haven’t read the blog, you probably are aware of some of these schemes. While I wish it were easy to sum everything up into one neat, overlying problem, it’s not that simple. Let me point out just a few of the issues.
For one, there’s a definite lack of respect in dating nowadays. People don’t even care about their partners enough to treat them as they deserve to be treated. Gossip, ridiculously high expectations, and rejections by ignorance are only some of the examples in this area...

Calling All Angels, Talking To Angels

Calling All Angels, Talking To Angels

by: Sam Stevens

I am a big believer in the strength of a personal prayer. However, some of you have asked for a formal guide about how to call to the Archangels. (See the archives – Your Guide To the Archangels for more information!) This guide below is for those of you who prefer to follow a structured format. This Universal Prayer To The Angels can be used to address any of the seven archangels. It is based loosely on Elizabeth Claire Prophet’s prayer structure, that I have personally found to be extremely effective.
It is ok to follow the structure below and write your prayer down and read it. It is also good to read your prayer out loud if you choose to use this more formal method.
First of all clear your mind. Try to be relaxed as possible.

Okay, you’ve either gotten married or are planning to pretty soon. Congratulations! I’m sure you’re aware that this means you will be responsible for at least half the meals you and your loved one will eat from here on out!

Things That Grown Women Just Don’t Wear…

Things That Grown Women Just Don’t Wear…

by: Marsha Maung

Apart from diapers, you mean? Even then, that’s questionable since we do use sanitary napkins…which…erm, some kids liken to a nappy. I know of one mother who actually said it was a nappy to her kids! I was like….argh, eugh, gross…but she took it in her stride, raising her eyebrows asking, “What do YOU suggest I tell them?”
I don’t know…but I told my son that it was none of his business and if he ever dares to touch those…erm, stuff or take it out of the room, I will personally see that his PC game privileges are taken away from him. And he refuses to look into my personal drawer after that.
I am no clothes-horse in person and it was only a couple of hours ago that my aunt in Dubai called me to tell me that I was sloppy...

Should Women Fake It?

Learning how to establish a healthy sexual relationship.

(Black Leather Couch Tales)
As soon as Chelsea walked in, she plopped down on the couch and announced, “I am so frustrated.”
“Hello Chelsea,” I said.
Ignoring my greeting altogether, she continued, “No really, Coach, I am.”
A few months earlier, Chelsea, a successful, attractive and very fit thirty-something lawyer, had been involved in a serious quest for a good, long-term relationship. She was in my office explaining how hard it had been to find a man of similar goals and values given her busy lifestyle. I had encouraged her to try online dating...

Is ‘Sex and the City’ Setting You Up for Lonelines

Is ‘Sex and the City’ Setting You Up for Loneliness?

by: Terry Hernon MacDonald

A couple of weeks ago, I watched a Sex and the City episode, in which Charlotte, in her never-ending quest to find true love, attends a seminar to teach her how to do just that.
She drags Carrie along, who scoffs at the whole thing. She thinks both the women who got sucked into attending and the seminar leader are sad and ridiculous.
To attract the right men, the crowd is counseled to use affirmations, which Carrie finds preposterous. These suckers actually think they’re going to meet guys by reciting a string of useless words!
During the presentation, Charlotte raises her hand to ask the leader a question. She says something like, “I’ve been using my affirmations, but I still haven’t found the right one.”

How to Get the Classic Jennifer Lopez Style

How to Get the Classic Jennifer Lopez Style

by: Dr. Letitia S. Wright, D.C.

I know that you’ve heard it a thousand times, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” How you and the things associated with you (like your car) look is a significant factor in creating your image.
Building a Business Wardrobe
The style of your clothes should compliment your lifestyle and the market you serve. For example, dress conservatively if you work with clients in conservative businesses such as banking. In the advertising industry, less conservative dress is the norm. Additionally, many hi-tech firms have adopted “business casual” dress codes.
The color of your clothing has the ability to indicate authority, power and personality...

A Valentine’s Day Story

A Valentine’s Day Story

by: Candee Stark

Valentine’s Day…the day of love right? Many years ago, 22 to be exact, I was a senior in high school. Just prior to Valentine’s Day our student council representative got on the intercom during morning announcements and told us about an upcoming fundraiser.
Student council was going to sell carnations for an entire week. It was further explained that there would be three colors available: red, pink, and white.
Red was to signify love, pink said, “I really like you” and white was for friendship. The carnations could be ordered ahead of time but wouldn’t be delivered until Valentine’s Day during homeroom. The whole school buzzed with excitement over the prospect of it...

You’re A Mom, She’s A Mom: Being An Adult With You

You’re A Mom, She’s A Mom: Being An Adult With Your Parents

by: Mimi Azoubel Daniel, MS, CEC

On one of her quarterly visits to see her grandson, my three-year-old son, my mother ignores the available front seat of the car, crowds into the back next to the car seat and promptly unwraps a lollipop. Feeling the tension rising, I recall the numerous conversations where I so proudly tell my mother how I keep sugar away from my son. “Mom, what are you doing? Haven’t you heard a word I said?” And so it starts. The struggle of being an adult with my parent.
So much is written today about taking care of our parents as they age...
