Tips For Your Lips

by: Sher Matsen

Nice lips are every woman’s wish but as we get older some things grow and some things shrink, and never in the order we wish. Your lips are going to get smaller and thinner. Now stop! It’s not the end of the world. There are plenty of things you can do to make your lips look fuller.

Lipstick always looks best when your lips are nice and smooth. To keep your lips smooth exfoliate them and always wear some type of lip balm when not wearing lipstick.
Start by applying lip liner to define th...

Recommendations For Early Breast Cancer Screening

Recommendations For Early Breast Cancer Screening

by: Brenda Witt

Women need to empower themselves about the benefits and risks of mammography and examine the additional screening tools available today. One current philosophy suggests breast health screening should begin at age 25. Where does this recommendation come from and why is this valid?
For MOST women, the recommendation for annual breast cancer screening begins at the age of 40. Unfortunately, the American Cancer Society stated that the number one cause of death in women between the ages of 40-44 is breast cancer. So what does this mean for women? It means that we screen at age 40 and potentially find tumors that have been growing for an estimated 8-10 years. Mammography, like most conventional tests, evaluates structure.

Feng Shui Monsters Under Your Bed

Feng Shui Monsters Under Your Bed

by: Stephanie Roberts

Good feng shui often requires making wise decisions based on your specific circumstances, rather than blinding following an ideal rule. The feng shui rule for storing things under your bed is “don’t do it.” But for those who live in small homes every inch of possible storage space is precious. If you are faced with cluttering up some other area of your home with stuff that otherwise might be put under the bed, how do you decide what to do?
My preference as a feng shui professional is to keep the more visible, frequently used areas of the home uncluttered. If that means storing some things under the bed, so be it, as long as it is done thoughtfully and appropriately.
There are two reasons why your bed is so important in feng shui...

Summers far from over and there is still time to enjoy those gorgeous summer fashions. Here’s our top picks for “ Gotta Have It Summer Fashions “
Every woman should have some big clunky plastic bangles and bracelets in a multitude of colors. These aren’t just fun for the summer they add color and lift your mood during the winter months.
To go with those bangles don’t forget to add a couple of funky purses. Straw and leather bags are very popular this year as are colorful designer bags. No need to have to spend big bucks for Vuiton or Versace as there are plenty of mass produced bags that will do the job. Big isn’t only fashionable it’s very handy for those summer trips.

Diamond Earrings: Superiority and Endurance

Diamond Earrings: Superiority and Endurance

by: Sam Serio

“A diamond is forever,” as the old saying goes. The late actress Marilyn Monroe said it best: “a diamond is a girl’s best friend.” So much tribute has been paid to the everlasting glory of the diamond, which is among the most valuable (and expensive!) precious stones in existence. Is it any wonder then that diamond jewelry is so fashionable? Diamond earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets – many of these are regarded as works of art.
The diamond is the most unadulterated of all the gemstones composed of a single pure element. It is also the hardest transparent substance that exists. It is for this that the diamond stands as a symbol of strength, purity of spirit, and even physical chastity.
Diamond earrings first reached the height ...

Three Faces of Hope

Three Faces of Hope

by: Cory L. Kemp

Recently I returned to my Oxford Dictionary to refresh my memory on the definition of hope. I’ve grown uncomrotable with how easily we as a culture use the word hope to dismiss the very essence of what the word is intended to convey. How has the word hope come to be its own worst enemy? Do we as a culture still have hope? What does it mean to hope? Oxford offers hree words that define hope as a verb in our culture: expect, desire and confidence. I believe these words are the keys to understanding hope in our culture, as well as defining this understanding as three faces of hope.
To expect something to happen usually means one of two things: an event is going to take place because it has been planned to occur; or an expecation has been set, apart ...

Are You Trying too Hard to Be Happy?

Are You Trying too Hard to Be Happy?

by: Carna Zacharias-Miller

We all want to be happy. However, if a woman pushes herself to emotional and mental exhaustion in order to reach “perfect” happiness, she could suffer from a condition she probably has never heard of: Missing Mother Syndrome.
When Megan Meadows (not her real name) came to me, she just wanted to lose weight. “Look at me!” she shouted, pinching her thighs. “I am fat! I am ugly! I hate my body!” Well, there was some middle-age spread, but she certainly was a very nice looking woman. Where did all this self-hate come from?
I am a Meridian Therapy practitioner who uses EFT, a form of emotional acupressure, to release negative emotions...

Astral Attack

Astral Attack

by: Sam Stevens

Believe it or not most astral Attacks are not caused by curses or witchcraft. Half the time astral attacks are not intentional. They take place on the subconscious level and are the result of negative thinking, verbal abuse that goes round and round in the head, stale energy that has been left behind in a place and bungled rituals that may have done by amateurs hoping to create prosperity or love. Below I have identified the different kinds of astral attack that can take place and hopefully it will help you avoid cursing yourself as well as others. Thoughts are like seeds …once planted and allowed to grow they can take root and choke the potential out of your life...

The Hassle-free Dating Plan

The Hassle-free Dating Plan

by: Becky Mentyra

The trials and tribulations of dating make for good humor and interesting dinner time stories! Doubling your dating pleasure starts with prioritizing the objectives of the date.
More single men and women could get more out of their dating if they applied a failsafe approach to the process.
While there aren’t any rules to dating, here are a few pointers to enhance the dating excitement and thwart the perils of dating the wrong prospects.

Devise a simple dating plan. Meeting singles through personal ads, online dating sites and in the bar scene can expose you to a small percentage of undesirables. To avoid wasting your time, conduct thorough phone interviews with your prospective dates. Invest five to 10 hours of phone dating time first.

Authentic Success

Authentic Success

by: Jane Miller

A More Effective Way
I own a stack of self improvement books ten feet tall. Achievement seminars I’ve attended number in the dozens. I had been trying to improve myself since the second grade when Mrs. H. burst my young bubble. Although I went on to fourteen more years as a star pupil, I never forgot the way she made me feel – not good enough. And through the years whenever a co-worker, boss, or customer questioned my motives or integrity, I felt those same feelings – of being not good enough. So what went wrong with my self improvement stint? I tried dutifully to follow the advice in all those books and workshops, showing me what to do and how to be. But, time after time, I failed.
I have come to learn that I did not fail…what I did do was try to copy the...

by: Alli Ross

One of the best benefits of marriage is that you have a permanent dating partner. Don’t let the fun end after the honeymoon. Here are some ideas for fun dates.

Successful Weight Loss After Pregnancy

Successful Weight Loss After Pregnancy

by: Beverley Brooke

How fast you lose weight will depend on a number of factors, including the amount of weight you gained during your pregnancy.
Most women will lose anywhere from 10-14 pounds within the first 2 weeks of delivery. This weight may be attributed primarily to the loss of excess fluid in the body, the baby’s weight, the placenta and amniotic fluid. Some women might lose a little bit less, and others might lose a little bit more.
As the uterus shrinks back down to its normal size and your hormone levels continue to fall, you will lose weight. Most women gain at least 7 pounds of fat during pregnancy. This fat is meant to help women store energy while breastfeeding...

Mindfulness and Sex: Right There, Right Now

Mindfulness and Sex: Right There, Right Now

by: Maya Talisman Frost

Mindfulness is downright sexy.
After all, what’s hotter than a partner who is paying attention? Being Right There, fully in the moment, is about as perfect as it gets.
So, it comes as a bit of a surprise to me that we don’t really use the term “mindfulness” in relation to loving relationships–let alone love in the afternoon.
This should be common, mainstream, slap-your-forehead-and-say-“Duh!” kind of knowledge. I don’t pretend to be an expert on what goes on between the sheets (although I did conceive and give birth to four children within five years) but I do know this: it is absolutely completely impossible to have a truly satisfying romantic sexual moment unless you are Right There in it.
Oh, sure, it’s possible to expe...

Verbal Self Defense – A Critical Factor in Self De

Verbal Self Defense – A Critical Factor in Self Defense for Women

by: Michelle Annese

Verbal self defense, the use of your voice in a threatening situation, is an extremely important tool in protecting yourself. How? Uncommon to popular belief, criminals do not pounce on an individual when the mood strikes them. They attack when they see an opportunity available to them. If it’s easy, they will take it. They will prey on those who are weak, unaware, and an uncomplicated target. Criminals will act on premeditation, or stalk their victims ahead of time before attacking. If you show that you are familiar with your surroundings, walk with confidence, and give off the impression of strength, a criminal will not want to work to fight you.

The Confidence Walk

The Confidence Walk

by: Sherri L Dodd

A few days back, in the midst of my chaotic holiday shopping excursion, I decided to take refuge in a pleasant nook of the mall. While gathering my thoughts, I was presented with the resonance of a confident woman. Her black leather heeled boots well preceded her appearance. Once in view, I would guess she was mid-fifties, dressed in form fitting jeans and a flashy, collared blouse. Her boots allowed a couple extra inches on her 5’2” height. She came and went in a flurry with the other holiday shoppers, but her essence lingered on beyond the completion of my rest period. I wondered what beliefs in herself did this woman have to carry herself such an assured manner.
Out of curiosity, how do you feel when you see another woman walking confident...

The New “Power Suit”

The New “Power Suit”

by: Sandra Mahoney

There’s something to be said for the ‘power suit’. The name alone speaks volumes. Think confidence, strength, attention getting. Now apply the same principle to workout apparel. What personality does a ratty t-shirt and baggy sweatpants convey? What about track pants and a sporty top? Which says coach potato or power walker? It’s a fact, attractive and right-sized clothing make you feel good as you continue to workout.
Gone are the days of the 70’s sport shorts and knee-high tube socks and the 80’s super tight and flaw-finding spandex leggings (which today most women run from not in). There is a fashionable middle ground between too tight and too baggy...
