No, It's NOT That Time of The Month...Put The Milk In The Fridge!!!

  I wake up on this drizzly, cool morning and peruse through my usual news/celeb gossip/social networking sites, and I stumble across something interesting.  Very interesting indeed.  And I am MORE than grateful that I am currently not going through PMS at this moment. ...more

The Royal Wedding: A Much Needed Break From Reality

Every year has its ups and downs; but it seems like 2011 has already had its share of tragedies.  Between the high gas prices, the horrendous events that struck China, the verbal mud-slinging between Republicans and Democrats that could have ultimately shut down the government, the dangerous and debilitating storms that hit Alabama and many other states, it’s no wonder that people seem to be a little moody these days.  Many people have expressed their unhappiness with the much publicized coverage of the Royal Wedding which has occurred over the past few months.  “Why ...more

Stay At Home Chic!

It's a typical Tuesday morning.  Your husband gets up, gets ready and goes to work while you are drinking a cup of coffee (in your pajamas) feeding the children.  He smiles and kisses you and the kids goodbye as he hurries out of the house while you continue feeding the kids and watch today's episode of Ellen. Sure, you have some work to do around the house, because there is always something to do.  But sometimes it doesn't even seem worth the work since you would have to clean everything twice anyway since kids always love "re-mes...more

"Unfriended"

You are having a normal day when you wake up.  You shower, get your breakfast and hop on your computer.  When you log into your Facebook account you look to your right and see FB's "suggested friends" and notice that someone you are friends with has "unfriended" you.  What a horrible word..."unfriend".  Who even says that??? Immediately  questions start spinning in your head.  Why did this person unfriend me?  Did I do something wrong?  Am I too boring?Or even worse, am I too annoying on Facebook? Sometimes it is not a big de...more

Thinspiration : NOT A Positive Motivator

Warning:  If you Google this term or "thinspo" for short, you will find some very unfavorable material.  Unfavorable, but very popular material.  I am writing this article based on a book mark of mine from the other day titled "You Are So Beautiful"  because this message is something that needs to be said, and we need to help those who are stuck in this terrible mindset. In just the past few years, it seemed as if there was a new celebrity on the cover of a magazine denying that they are anorexic, or that they did indeed have an eating disorder.  It turned i...more

Forget the Falling Birds and Floods, America's REAL Problem??? "LAZYWEAR"!

Remember those old black and white movies where the men dressed up in a full 3-piece suit complete with hats...just to go for a cup of coffee?  The women would wear dresses and have their hair done and always look "pulled together" no matter if they were grocery shopping, or running the vacuum cleaner at home.  Those days are long gone.  In fact, the shock of seeing someone wearing their pajamas to the grocery store doesn't seem to faze anyone anymore.  What happened?  When did we decide to let ourselves go?...more

There have been some good points made on both sides. Some people are more/less productive, ...more

Attention Women of the Modern World

I am reading a fascinating book called "Backwards in High Heels:  The Impossible Art of Being Female" written by Tania Kindersley and Sarah Vine.  This book is not a self-help book in the classic sense, as more of a "guide" to the day to day life of women's issues, etc.  The book is broken down into categories such as: Marriage, Career, Love, Food, Health and so on.  Not even halfway through it, I have already extracted many useful and interesting hints, thoughts and views.I can easily get into each of the categories and give my interpretation.  However...more
