Here's to Sisterhood

It can be difficult being a woman. Lately, I see women as competitors rather than sisters.  I look at a woman and see thinner, better looking,  luckier, or more successful. That's the wrong image to have of sisterhood. We should be supporting each other or guiding one another, not critiquing or criticizing other woman. How can I ever measure up to her? She's so young and so fit.  I can't.  Simply because I am not her or can never be her. I was never made to be anyone else but me. The only thing I can do is be the best me. To try each new day to reach my potential....more

Carmex is my Lifesaver

Right so working all day 14 hours a day and having real little time to take a break to even grab a drink of water, really does mess with your body especially your lips.I’ve been back in work now for two weeks and already my lips are dry and cracked and it is 100% not attractive at all.I’ve tried everything possible to make sure that I can restore my lips and nothing has worked until yesterday.With only a days worth of application my lips are already on the mend no more cracks, no more dead skin just perfect plump lips....more

I am more than a number... or a cookie

 I love the way the warm chocolate catches the light as it cools slowly from the oven. My husband makes the best chocolate chip cookies. They are golden brown, crisp on the edges, yet still soft and perfect in the middle. My mouth always waters waiting for them to cool down as he moves them from the cookie pan to the plate. It’s a treat, this loving thing that he does for us. A treat that I can never resist, even when I am supposed to be watching my diet....more

The Final Proof You Need To Stop Your Scale Obsession

f you have a weight scale at home you may or may not have been aware of the latest call of freedom. Women are screaming to the world why you should have thrown the scale out the window or smashed it down with a hammer long time ago.The scale imprisons the body and mind in a place of obsession, control and despair when it has not been proclaimed guilty of any crime.We are caged inside a habit trap that is only but causing us unnecessary suffering just through the power of a number....more

Shutting Up & Loving Myself

 I remember feeling an overwhelming sense of awkwardness when I was growing up.I didn’t look like the other girls and I felt grossly out of place. Dark curly hair that never seemed to be properly styled, thick eyeglasses, tiny stature but curvy build—all of it added up to me feeling uncomfortable about myself....more

Any advice for skinny ones

I never like being photographed. Or, better to say-I felt uncomfortable even if I wanted that. Never got it why. Mostly, I was just too shy but..why... I didn't think much about it until I got tired of my husband taking selfies all day long. I asked: what is the point? And stop putting my photos on bloody facebook. Then he told me that he never felt better in his skin since he was overweight, and wants to have a memory of it. Ok, too many memories for my taste but, that is his choice. Then, why don't I like it?...more
