Can You Wear Casual Clothes Clubbing?

Can You Wear Casual Clothes Clubbing?

by: Shannon Russell

My answer is…why not? Now, let’s take define casual clothes for a moment here. Casual is defined as relaxed, comfortable, sporty, laid-back and informal. Now, if that’s the case, I don’t see a problem with wearing casual clothes clubbing. Obviously, we want to look good when we go clubbing because of the fact that we either want to attract the opposite sex, look classy or perhaps keep our image intact.
But I have seen lots of women and celebrities who look fanta-bulous in casual clothes in clubs too. In fact, what you can do is flip through some magazines and you’ll soon see that even celebrities wear casual clothes clubbing...

Proper Etiquette for the Wedding Invitation

Proper Etiquette for the Wedding Invitation

by: David Chandler

The invitation is the first impression of the type of wedding you have planned. Your invitation may be custom made, sophisticated, eloquent or a do it yourself creation. With all the styles and colors to choose from, it should not be too difficult to find the perfect invitation.
Whether your invitation is traditional or casual, you will need to include a RSVP (response card) and a reception information card. Other items you could put in with the invitation are directions to the church and reception hall.
With today’s “blended” families it is increasingly difficult to find the proper wording for the wedding invitation. Here are some examples of traditional wording for your invitation.

The career mom is the CEO of everything!

The career mom is the CEO of everything!

by: Marsha Maung

I realized the critical importance of the role of career mom when I had my kids and had to work at home at the same time. Not only are career moms assuming the roles of being mom, they are also taking on the role of being a woman, a wife, a daughter, a business owner or an employee, etc. And we’re not even talking about bring a driver to the kids, a cook to the family, a teacher or tuition teacher every single day of the year until the kids are capable of driving themselves around. Most of the time, the career mom may have to assume the role of psychiatrist and counselor as well!
Now, I don’t know about you but I think this whole thing about multi-tasking and multiple role-playing is pretty hard to stomach.
That’s why it’s essen...

Getting the Guy You Want: Self-Esteem Trumps Prett

Getting the Guy You Want: Self-Esteem Trumps Pretty

by: Terry Hernon MacDonald

Part of the reason we have difficulty attracting men who make us happy is because we believe that such men don’t really exist. We believe that to attract a man we have to be the prettiest girl in the room, have the biggest breasts on the block, the tightest abs, and so on. We must stay on our toes to makes sure somebody prettier, smarter, or whatever doesn’t sneak up and snatch our man. It never ends.
And then, as we’re minding our own business on the supermarket check-out line, we glimpse a headline on a magazinecover: “Jessica’s Hotter Than Ever! How Can Nick Leave Her Now?” The subtext is, if a fox like Jessica Simpson can’t hold on to a man, what chance do the rest of us have?
Even if your tastes in literatu...

Belly Rings: Sexy is as Sexy Does

Belly Rings: Sexy is as Sexy Does

by: Sam Serio

Body piercings have been the object of much controversy — besides being an artistic expression and a celebration of one’s physical endowments. The belly ring is such a piece of jewelry.
In times of old, body piercings were treated differently, depending on the culture. As most body piercings had ritual or ceremonial value, many cultures prohibited specific types of body piercing that were purely for the sake of adornment. The warriors of old Central and South American civilizations sported body piercings, specifically in the nose area, in order to appear more intimidating to their enemies. On the other hand, lip piercings and decorations were meant to enhance attractiveness, especially among women of the day and age.
And while body piercings ...

How To Eat A Healthy Diet During Pregnancy

How To Eat A Healthy Diet During Pregnancy

by: Beverley Brooke

Perhaps the number one complaint of women trying to watch their weight during pregnancy is that they are hungry all the time. True, pregnancy does result in an increased metabolic demand on the body, which can cause you to be hungry. Many women also experience a number of cravings during pregnancy, which can make healthy eating challenging.
The first thing to remember is that the idea that you should eat for two is wrong. You only need an additional 300 calories per day, and generally you don’t need these calories until you are well on your way to the second and third trimesters.
So what can you do to help manage your weight and stick to a healthy diet?
Remember that during pregnancy it is vital that you do not cut back on yo...

Today’s Woman

Today’s Woman

by: Rose DesRochers

She is a guide, mentor, mother, nurturer, wife and friend. She is many things to many people. She is Today’s woman. She is a new woman in ever changing new world or is she? She gives and she takes only what is earned. She speaks up even when it feels uncomfortable. When life gives her lemons Today’s woman takes those lemons and makes lemonade or does she?

The only difference between me and my mother was that she was born in 1932 a time of poverty. By the age of 12 she was at home raising her brothers and sisters instead of attending school...

Plants, Herbs, and Roots for Love

Plants, Herbs, and Roots for Love

by: Sam Stevens

In the column Plants, Herbs and Roots For Prosperity, I explain in detail how to practically use a plant material to attract things to you, so refer to that if you have never used plant matter in magic before.
In brief, the main methods of using plant material to draw love are: carrying the substance on your person in a locket or a sachet, boiling the herb and sprinkling the residual water around your residence, putting a sprig of it under your bed or in your pillow and burning it as incense. Also with love attracting, just keeping the living plant in your house can help increase your vibrations. Some flowers can also be dropped in a bath.
Here is a list of common plants, herbs and roots used in love magic with some tips about how to use th...

Shopping: Be Wary

Shopping: Be Wary

by: Ken McIsaac

You may not get what you expect!
Retailing has become very competitive in recent years and too many corporations, including some large retail chains, are using trickery and deception in marketing. Misleading advertisements, displays and labeling, and other sly tactics are too common. Beating the competitor and the consumer, preferably within the limits of the law, seems to be a retail marketing trend.
There are many ways: Store displays that attempt to sell items that appear to be on sale but aren’t. Switch and bait selling. Marketing to kids. The use of shock to increase ratings and sales. Encouraging credit, gouging those that can’t afford exorbitant charges when interest rates are at 45-50 year lows.
Then there is the small print, hidden charges, plan...

Beads—A Sign of the Times?

Beads—A Sign of the Times?

by: MJ Plaster

When you hear the word “beads,” do you immediately think of jewelry? Or do you think of Rosary beads or some other non-jewelry use of beads—beaded dresses, headbands, belts? Perhaps you think of a country and western outfit, a studded, head-to-toe piece of jewelry.
The first thought that enters your mind when you hear the word “beads” may date you and give away your age faster than physical attributes. If you’re a product of the 50’s, your mind may wander to pop beads, those plastic pull apart, pop together baubles that have risen in value from pennies to $20, $30 or more...

Divine Food for Divine Beauty

by: Tonya Zavasta

Excerpted from the book “Your Right to Be Beautiful: How to Halt the Train of Aging and Meet the Most Beautiful You” by Tonya Zavasta. The book is available at: http://www.beautifulonraw.com/html/righttobe.html
The phrase “natural beauty” has been abused and misused beyond restoration. The modern use is almost never associated with its true meaning. Someone said there should be a portrait of a healthy person in a museum so people would know what they are talking about. If we don’t know what a healthy person looks like, how do we know what natural beauty is?
In our unnatural world, the word “natural” no longer means without effort, at least not in the realm of obtaining your best look...

Rape Defense Training: One Woman’s Crusade

Rape Defense Training: One Woman’s Crusade

by: Jeffrey M. Miller

How can the life of one man be changed by one woman – a woman he doesn’t know – one he had accidently encountered in a fast food restaurant nearly two decades ago? How can meeting and listening to her speak for less than an hour, forever change the way he thought about and taught women’s self defense and rape prevention? Let me tell you.
Susan’s Story:
One Woman’s Story That Changed My Life (part 1)
I, like most men, had grown up in an era, much like those of the decades before, that collectively believed that women who were raped:
1) Were never really raped at all. Instead they were mad at their boyfriend or “some-guy” for whatever reason and were using this as a weapon to “get him in trouble.” Or, worse yet,
2) Were “...

Lying and Loving It…

Lying and Loving It…

by: Ed Williams

Lies. This week I’m thinking about lies.
Specifically, the lies that we men tell women. Oh, believe me, I know that there’ll be many of you guys out there who’ll roll your eyes and then tell your significant others that I’m crazy, that you never lie and that I’m just making us guys look bad for some unfathomable reason. The truth is, though, that we men do lie to the women we care about, we lie to them often, and we’ll keep doing it for as long as we can draw breath. If y’all don’t think so, then I’m going to conduct a little experiment – I’m going to list three questions that women typically ask men, and I’ll respond with the answers we men usually give, and then I’ll answer them the way we would if we were being totally honest...

Quick Tips for Applying Eye Makeup

Quick Tips for Applying Eye Makeup

by: Donna Monday

Ever since Queen Nefertiti first lined her eyes with black coal, women have been using makeup to emphasize the beauty of their eyes. If you are looking for eye makeup tips or eye makeup ideas for a dramatic eye make up look for an evening out, or simply some free eye makeup tips to put on your “morning face”, you can start out by learning basic eye makeup application.

Keep Your Thongs Looking As Good As You Do!

Keep Your Thongs Looking As Good As You Do!

by: Bas de Baar

You probably paid a lot of money for that little triangle of fabric with the almost-not-there waistband; but even if you buy your thongs by the dozen at Walmart(r) you might as well keep them looking better for longer. After all, thongs aren’t just underwear, they’re a statement!
Thongs are a bit more delicate than the cotton “granny panties” that you keep around for, um, periodic purposes, so it’s important to treat them with the care that they deserve. You don’t really have to be concerned about the fabric content, or even read the care and handling tag, because no company that I have ever heard of has ever made a pair of “Dry Clean Only” underwear. You can bet that your thongs are washable.
We all know that the term “washable” ...
