Less Is More In Beauty? (YES!) – Hair and Beauty Tip

In beauty, often less is more. Less makeup. Less jewelry.

Demi Lovato’s new blue hair and her performance of her new single “Neon Lights” presented on ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ were both pleasant surprises for the audience, but her new beauty makeover was by far the bigger shocker. 

The pop star was never shy as far as experimenting with new hair colors is concerned, (in May she changed her signature brown tresses for a honey blonde shade), however this was one of her boldest makeovers yet, if not the boldest and it definitely matched the spirit of her song.

With her bold new blue hair color, a bold smokey eye makeup, black nail polish, cool leather jacket and edgy jewelry, the X Factor judge looked like a true rock star.

The Low FODMAP Diet

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 29 Jan 2015

Developed at Stanford University to offer relief to those
dealing with irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, the Low
FODMAP diet is taking off as a major trends, since it’s also recommended for
anyone with non-celiac gluten sensitivity. While the diet doesn’t have any big
weight loss benefits, it can relieve diarrhea, bloating and gas production.

Find out more about the benefits of this diet, the science
behind it and the right way to try it when you’re dealing with digestive
issues.

The Low FODMAP Diet
Basics

The main principle of the diet is to get symptom relief by
reducing carbs that tend to draw water into the stool. The Low FODMAP diet
advises that you reduce your intake of these problematic carbs in order to
eliminate their laxative and bloating effect. However, the way the diet works
best is under the supervision of a dietitian, so don’t try it on your own
without the help of a professional.

What are FODMAPs?

An acronym for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides,
Monosaccharides and Polyols, FODMAPs are found in everything from dairy and
grains to fruits and vegetables, along with high fructose corn syrup. The Low
FODMAP diet restricts foods high in these compounds, but it also recommends
avoiding food combinations that result in high levels of them.

10 Things That Make Cellulite Worse

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 28 Jan 2015

Affecting up to 90% of women, cellulite has both genetic and
hormonal causes, but not a lot of solutions. While some treatments promise to
eliminate it completely, the best you can hope for is temporary relief.

When you’re starting to see dimpling on your skin, it’s very
important to avoid the things that make cellulite worse. From lack of exercise
to a diet that’s unbalanced and increases your BMI, here are your top enemies
when you’re trying to fight cellulite.

1. Dehydration

When your skin is dry, the dimpling of cellulite is more
noticeable, but this isn’t a problem you can fix with the right moisturizer.
Make sure that you’re drinking enough fluids, more water and less sugary sodas,
along with coffee or alcohol. Eating water rich foods and vegetables can also
help you prevent dehydration that make cellulite stand out.

2. Smoking

It’s bad for your health, but smoking is also one of the things
that make cellulite worse. Besides the effects smoke has on your skin,
including aging and an uneven complexion, smoking is also linked to reduced
blood flow. However, the main reason why smoking can increase the appearance of
cellulite is the fact that it can affect collagen formation, making fat more
visible under your skin.

3. Being Sedentary

Why These Celebrities Avoid Social Media

Published On 28 Jan 2015

While some celebrities have trouble with technology in
general, and that keeps them away from social media, others have better reasons
for staying away from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Learn more about the celebrities who avoid social media, and
find out what keeps them away. From Jennifer Aniston and Bradley Cooper to
younger stars like Keira Knightley and Daniel Radcliffe, here are the celebrities
who just don’t do social media.

Jennifer Aniston

After declaring herself “computer illiterate”, “Cake” star Jennifer
Aniston confirmed again and again that she wants to stay away from social media
for many reasons. 

Jennifer Aniston Avoids Social Media

“It’s not for me. I’d be opening myself up too much. I don’t
want to sound like a complete innocent – I’ve looked at things, of course. But
it’s such spewing. If I look at it, I’ll be affected. It’s like dancing with
the devil,” Aniston told the New York Times.

How to Find Cheap Jewelry That Looks Expensive

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion Accessories
Published On 27 Jan 2015

Costume jewelry is a growing trend, but just because it’s
accessible doesn’t mean it will also look great on you. Some fake stones look
better than others, but there’s more to choosing jewelry that will look luxe
with a small price tag.

Find out how to find expensive looking jewelry and how to
wear it for the maximum effect. When you can’t spend too much on your accessories,
follow these great tips to get the most out of your investment and complete
your style.

Invest in Sets

Jewelry sets are usually priced well, and you’re getting a
deal compared to buying the pieces on their own. However, when you’re buying a
cheap set, it’s important to always wear the pieces separately. When they’re
all together, clues about their less than great quality add up. So save some
money by getting a set, but make sure every component can be paired with other pieces
from your jewelry collection.

Avoid Anything That
Looks Junior

Even when they’re very expensive, some pieces just look
cheap. From charm bracelets to different types of jewelry in bright colors or
cute shapes (animals or insects), they’re never the answer to the question of how
to find expensive looking jewelry. If it has hearts or other easily
recognizable shapes, then you’re better off passing, since they won’t look
sophisticated and expensive.

How to Break the Cycle of Bad Relationships

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 27 Jan 2015

The end of a relationship is always difficult, but it’s even
more upsetting when you start to notice that most of your relationships tend to
have the same problems or end because of the same issues. Whether it’s your
choice in men or something else, it’s time to make a change for the better.

Find out how to break the cycle of bad relationships by
taking a few important steps towards discovering the core of the issue and
making better choices. No matter what the common issue is with all your failed
relationships, here’s what you need to do in order to move on to a better one.

Take Responsibility

If it’s always his fault, you won’t make a lot of progress
and find a relationship that makes you happier. Start by taking responsibility
for your mistakes. At the very least, you’re choosing the wrong guys and
ignoring red flags. Without taking even a little responsibility for your part
in the demise of your relationships, you can’t really learn from your mistakes
in order to move on.

Forgive Yourself for
Your Mistakes

Once you’ve accepted your role in the failed relationships, the
next step in order to break the cycle of bad relationships is to forgive
yourself. Even if your only mistake was to trust the wrong guys, beating
yourself up for it won’t help you make better choices the next time around. If
you secretly feel that you deserve everything bad that happened, you won’t be
able to attract a partner who will treat you the right way.

10 Ways to Improve Your Relationship Instantly

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 26 Jan 2015

Whether you’re looking to create a better connection to your
partner or just make sure that you’ll stay happy in the long run, there are
many ways in which you can work on your relationship to make it stronger and
more fulfilling for both of you.

Check out the right ways to improve your relationship
instantly and you’ll be happy that you took action. From keeping the physical
connection to exploring your emotional compatibility to the fullest, here’s how
to take your relationship to the next level.

1. Work Out Together

You don’t have to go to the gym together, but a shared
workout session that gives you both a rush of endorphins can make you feel
closer to each other. From running to hiking or even swimming together,
exercising can get your blood pumping together and that can contribute to the
passion you share. An adrenalin rush has the same effect, although you probably
won’t make a roller coaster ride part of your weekly routine.

2. Keep Asking Questions

When you’re in a long term relationship, you can get to a
point where you feel like you already know everything there is to know about
your guy. However, one of the best ways to improve your relationship instantly
is to keep yourself open to learning new things about him. Tastes can change in
time, so there’s no reason why you can’t keep the excitement in your
relationship by asking each other questions about anything and everything.

3. Always Go to Bed
Together

10 Ways to Make Him Miss You

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 26 Jan 2015

Once a guy takes you for granted, it’s hard to get back the
original spark, but you can definitely do a lot to make him take notice and
start missing you when you’re away.

Whether you’re away from him for a limited time or he just
doesn’t cherish the time you spend together anymore, try some of the best ways
to make him miss you. Forget about games like making yourself unavailable and
try some tried and true ways that will definitely make him feel sad he can’t
spend more time with you.

1. Try Sexting

The best way to make him crave your touch is using text
messages to your advantage. Sexting is definitely an option, but you don’t have
to go that far. A sexy message that doesn’t go into graphic detail can be just
as effective. Whether you try a romantic approach or mention an intimate moment
that will definitely resonate, pick the right time to send it, when you know he’s
not too busy to appreciate it fully.

2. Use Your Perfume

One of the most traditional ways to make him miss you is to
use your signature fragrance to maximum effect. While leaving a trace of it on
him or his pillowcase happens naturally, you can take matters into your own
hands and leave a little more behind. Just make sure that you use it on your skin
first and then gently rub it on textiles. Apply it directly and you might stain
them.

3. Make the Most Out of
Your Sexy Lingerie

How to Enjoy Valentine’s Day Alone

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 26 Jan 2015

Being single on Valentine’s Day can be hard, particularly if
most of your friends are celebrating the day with their partners. But you don’t
have to miss out on all the fun, since there are plenty of ways to enjoy this
day on your own.

Find out how to enjoy Valentine’s Day alone, whether you
decide to spend the day with your single friends, or if you just decide to find
something to do by yourself. Focus on the positives and you’ll have a great day
even without the man of your dreams.

Pamper Yourself

Since you won’t be spending money on a present, you might as
well go ahead and spend a little for yourself. A spa day can be an excellent
way to pamper yourself, but you can also take a relaxing bubble bath with a
good book or an album you love. Schedule a hair appointment or a manicure to
look your best for yourself.

Get Some Flowers

Just because you won’t be getting any flowers doesn’t mean
you shouldn’t enjoy them. When you’re wondering how to enjoy Valentine’s Day
alone, splurge on your favorite flowers. If you want to avoid the romantic
vibe, avoid roses, and focus on some other beautiful and fragrant flowers that
can make you feel better.

Part Time Vegan Diet: Dare to Try It?

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 02 Oct 2013

Nowadays, we seem to be consuming a lot of processed foods that make us gain weight. We feel tired and sometimes we may lack focus. So, why not start improving our lifestyle and start eating healthier?

A Great Part Time Vegan Cookbook

In his book “VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00”, best selling author, Mark Bittman, explains how he was forced to change his life, because his doctor delivered some bad news. He had high-cholesterol, suffered from pre-diabetes and was overweight, so he definitely had to change something.

Instead of prescribing pills, his doctor suggested converting to veganism. At first it was hard for him, as he is a food writer for The New York Times, so he was used to delicious dishes that included meat. But in the end, he admits that this was probably the best decision he took.

10 Ways Your Home Is Ruining Your Skin

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 22 Jan 2015

Even with the best skin care routine, you can run into a lot
of trouble if you miss some important factors that affect the healthy and
beauty of your skin. Some of the biggest dangers are right at home, so taking a
few steps to prevent them is always a good idea.

Discover the ways your home is ruining your skin and find
out how to prevent the damage you might not even realize. From keeping the
humidity at the right temperatures to protecting your skin from UV radiation
indoors, here’s what you need to know.

1. Dry Air

Without a humidifier, colder months can take a real toll on
your skin. Dry air doesn’t just suck moisture from your skin, it can also
irritate your nasal passages. A humidifier in the bedroom can fix the problem
at least during the night, when your skin can dry out even after you apply a
good moisturizer.

2. Harsh Cleaning Products

Keeping everything in your home clean should be a priority,
but using strong chemical products to clean your kitchen and bathroom isn’t
always wise. Even if you always use gloves, chemical residue on clear surfaces
means that your skin will come into contact with the chemicals later on, and
that could be one of the ways your home is ruining your skin.

10 Dating Tips for Shy Ladies

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 21 Jan 2015

Finding the perfect guy can be more difficult when you’re
shy, particularly if you decide that you won’t take the direct approach with
someone you like. Being prepared is very important when you’re shy, but that’s
not the only thing you should take into account when trying to improve your
dating life.

Check out some of the most important dating tips for shy
ladies, that will help you land the guy even if you’re having trouble coming
out of your shell.

1. Adjust Your Body
Language

When you’re shy, it’s very important to be aware of your
body language. Crossed arms and a torso that’s turned away from the person you’re
speaking to can be seen as sign of rejection. Make sure that you’re not coming
off as aloof or even cold. If you’re not going to approach guys yourself, then
you should definitely make sure that your body language shows you’re interested
(when you really are).

2. Use Your Style

One of the most important dating tips for shy ladies is to
dress to impress. That doesn’t have to mean short hemlines and low necklines,
but you absolutely have to take your look to the next level in order to attract
guys that you’re too shy to approach yourself. Attention grabbing accessories
and sexy heels are a must.

Friend

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 20 Jan 2015

While animal protein and starch is one of the most common
food combinations, it can definitely affect your digestion. But if you’re not
giving it up anytime soon, then you should learn about other food combinations
to avoid for various reasons.

From combinations of foods that slow down digestion to those
that mess with your energy levels, here are some of the combos that you should
try to avoid on a regular basis.

Muffins and Orange
Juice

While muffins are filled with carbs and orange juice has all
the sugar from the fruit but very little of the fiber, this combination can
raise your energy levels quickly, followed by a crash. Whole grain muffins
deliver fiber that you do need for your breakfast, but you should still skip
the orange juice, and also avoid it if you’re eating cereal for breakfast,
particularly when mixed with milk.

Bananas and Dairy

Forget about the taste of a banana smoothie, since this
fruit and milk amount to one of the worst food combinations to avoid. Your digestion
will slow down and your energy levels can also drop. If bananas are a big part
of your breakfast, then you can combine them with a non-dairy milk, whether it’s
almond, coconut or another good replacement.

While many actors go all the way to inhabit a character,
using method acting, then get back to their regular lives, others learn many
things from their parts, which end up being a big part of their personal lives.

life after his part in “Ocean’s Eleven”, here are some of the celebrities who

How to Do Makeup for Harsh Fluorescent Office Lighting

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 16 Jan 2015

If you have to work or spend a lot of time under fluorescent
lighting, you should definitely adapt your makeup to the very unflattering
situation. From choosing the right colors to using the best types of products,
there are plenty of ways to make yourself look better in this type of
environment.

Check out some of the best fluorescent lighting makeup tips
and make sure your look will be as successful in natural lighting and in less
flattering conditions. The easiest solution would be to apply your makeup under
fluorescent lighting, but that’s not always easy.

Invest in a Good Makeup
Mirror

There’s no point in installing fluorescent lighting in your
home when you can get the same effect with a lighted makeup mirror. Choose a
mirror with a fluorescent light setting, that’s usually labeled as “office” and
you’ll be able to experiment and adapt your looks successfully with less trial
and error.

Choose Creamy
Consistencies

Even if you blend very well and finish with a translucent
one, powders can make your skin look dry under fluorescent lights. Using creamy
products, from tinted moisturizers to cream blush, is one of the best fluorescent
lighting makeup tips. You can also use highlighters and lip gloss to counteract
the drying effect of the light.

How to Help Him Be More Confident

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 16 Jan 2015

If your guy lacks confidence, that can certainly translate
into some trouble for the relationship. His self esteem should be his problem, but
if you care about him, you have quite a few options to help him out.

Sometimes the right way to go is not to address the problem
head on, but instead to start with a few subtle ways of encouraging him and
helping him overcome the issue. If that doesn’t help, there are a few more
steps that you can use when figuring out how to help him be more confident.

Encourage Him to
Focus on the Positives

A healthy way to create a support system in any
relationship, focusing on the positives can help. If he brushes aside all his
achievement, it’s up to you to make a big deal about them and encourage him to
take it to the next level. If he wants to talk about how useless he is, hijack
the conversation and remind of things he’s good at.

Support Him in His
Goals

One of the best ways to help him be more confident is to
support him when he sets goals for himself. That doesn’t mean that you should
take over and push him when he’s not willing to push himself, but you should
always be supportive and offer to help out when he’s trying to reach an
important goal, either in his education or in his career.

10 Ways to Deal with a Jealous Boyfriend

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 16 Jan 2015

A bit of jealousy and possessiveness is healthy in most
relationships, but when it’s going too far, it can become a huge problem. If
your guy is more jealous than most, you’ll need to do two things: take his
feelings into consideration, while also knowing when to draw the line.

Find out how to deal with a jealous boyfriend without making
him feel bad about it, but without letting him control you either. From a
little bit of leeway on your part, to his commitment to change, here’s what you
can do about excessive jealousy.

1. Don’t Give Him Any
Reasons to Be Jealous

Your first step is to throw away any attempts of teasing
him, joking about flirting with other guys or adding to the issue in any
gratuitous way. This doesn’t mean that you have to stay 3 feet away from any
guy or let him control the way you dress. It just means that you shouldn’t use
his jealousy against him to make things worse.

2. Figure Out the Root
of the Problem

When you’re figuring out how to deal with a jealous
boyfriend, it’s important to know if it’s part of his personality or if he’s
been through any situations that created the problem. If one of his parents
cheated or if he’s been hurt by other girlfriends, it’s important to acknowledge
the validity of his feelings, while also letting him know that he doesn’t have
a right to be insanely jealous because of his past.

3. Appreciate His Efforts
to Change

Beauty Tips to Use During Your Period

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 13 Jan 2015

The big hormonal changes that your body goes through when
you’re on your period can also wreak havoc on your skin. From enlarged pores to
dull skin and from puffiness to flat hair, here are the most common period
beauty issues and their solutions.

Discover a few excellent beauty tips to use during your
period in order to fight a lot of problems that are caused by hormone shifts. Whether
you’re dealing with acne, oily skin or other period related skin problems, here’s
what to do.

Fake Your Glow

When you’re dealing with dull skin, there’s not much you do
about it, but you have plenty of options to hide the problem. Look for products
with illuminating particles, from concealer and foundation to serums and
moisturizers. However, herbal facial masks can also help, particularly those
rich in antioxidants, thanks to ingredients like green tea.

Fight Oil

In low estrogen days, your skin can get very oily. One of
the best beauty tips to use during your period is to find the right cleanser.
Look for a low pH product with anti-inflammatory properties. You can also use
products designed for acne-prone skin, that include salicylic acid. Sulfur
masks can also make a big difference in cleaning your pores and preventing
bacteria from causing more pimples.

This Is How You Wear a Sparkly Dress

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 13 Jan 2015

Metallics are becoming a big trend on the red carpet. While
this sexy look isn’t for the office, you can certainly make a big splash on
special occasions with the right amount of sparkle.

Whether you love sequins or metallic dresses are your thing,
find out how to wear a sparkly dress to full effect. From choosing the right
accessories to making sure that your hair and makeup don’t detract from the
dress, here are the most important style tips for sparkly looks.

Focus on the Fit

While you can certainly go for a looser fit, as long as you
belt your sparkly dress, the initial fit is very important to your look.
Metallics and sequins aren’t very forgiving, so going too tight is definitely a
mistake, particularly in the waist area. Skin tight is also a less than perfect
look, so make sure that you find the balance between fit and flowy that works
for your body type.

Choose the Right Neckline

If you’re going for a very sexy vibe, you’re better off
revealing arms and legs than cleavage. Going with a plunging neckline when you wear
a sparkly dress can definitely push your look into Las Vegas showgirl
territory. Stay sophisticated with a high neckline. If you opt for a halter
neckline, you’ll also have to tone down your accessories a bit.

Eyebrow Bleaching 101

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 12 Jan 2015

Bleaching eyebrows has been around for a while, but the look
really took off in Fall 2014, both on the runways and with celebrities. If you’re
tempted to try it out, learn more about the process and the effects on your
brows and your overall look.

From gently lightening the color of your brows to making
them “invisible”, there are many interpretations to the trend. Check out a few
very important bleaching eyebrows tips that will help you make the decision if
the look is worth trying.

The Bleached Eyebrows
Trend

Very light eyebrows have shown up during Fashion Week from
time to time, but in 2014 they were embraced by more designers than usual.
Models like Kendall Jenner and Lara Stone rocked the trend on the runway, while
celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry also
experimented with bleached eyebrows.

Try a Temporary
Solution

Just like most models and celebrities did, trying the look
temporarily before committing to it is one of the best bleaching eyebrow tips.
Whether you use a light brow pencil, tinted brow gel or simply foundation and
powder, experiment with the look before making a big move like using a
bleaching agent on your brows.

10 Exercises You’re Doing Wrong

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
Published On 12 Jan 2015

When you perform exercises for a long time, you might forget
about the rules and important details that make them effective. That’s how you
end up with exercises you’re doing wrong, and that means that your muscles are
getting less of a workout.

From planks and lunges to exercising with a jump rope or
stair machine, here are a few common mistakes that are preventing you from
getting the best workout and might even be causing harm. Take the time to
analyze your exercise routine temporarily and make sure that you’re not doing
it wrong.

Planks

If you look forward to planks because they seem an easy
exercise, you might be doing them wrong. If you can stay in the position for
more than 20 seconds, you’re definitely not engaging your core muscles, and you’re
relying too much on your joints. Your elbows should be aligned with your
shoulders and the line of your body should be completely straight.

Leg Lifts

Side Leg Lifts

The classic side leg lift can help you tone your legs, but
it’s one of the exercises you’re doing wrong if you’re performing it on a flat
surface. By lying flat when you do side leg lifts you’re working out your hip
muscles more than your legs. Try this exercise with your elbow on a low
platform and your bottom leg bent at the knee for a better workout.

10 Simple and Effective Beauty Tricks

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 11 Jan 2015

While tricks like using toothpaste on pimples and cocoa
butter to prevent stretch marks are either risky or harmless, some beauty tips
have proven their efficacy again and again on a wide variety of skin and hair
types.

Take a look at a few beauty tips that really work and give
them a chance to convince you of their usefulness. From replacing toner with
witch hazel to using loose powder as an emergency fix instead of dry shampoo,
here are a few beauty tricks that actually deliver results.

1. Use Witch Hazel
Instead of Toner

Even if you don’t go natural with most of your skin care
products and makeup, this replacement will definitely benefit your skin. Witch hazel is cheap and can be found in many health food stores. Free of alcohol or
chemicals, it can clean your skin perfectly, without stripping moisture from
the skin or messing with oil production.

2. Apply Skin Care from
the Outside of Your Face

Most women start at the center of the face, but rarely get
to the outer edges, where signs of aging are often more visible. Try one of the
beauty tips that really work and change your application technique. Start at
the jawline and hairline and work your way inward to make an important
improvement to your skin care routine.

Concealer Hacks That Will Change Everything

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 11 Jan 2015

Using concealer the right way can make a huge difference to
your makeup. Even if you’re not making any beginner mistakes, there’s always
room for improvement. Try these useful tricks to really get your money’s worth
when it comes to concealer.

With the help of some of the best concealer hacks, you’ll be
able to improve your makeup skills and get a perfect complexion every single time. From
the right way to apply it to a few novel uses, here are the concealer tips and
tricks that are always useful.

Never Apply Before
Foundation

While many women think that the correct order is
moisturizer, concealer and foundation, pros know that it’s always best to apply
the concealer on top of the foundation. That way, you’ll be using less to get
the right look and you won’t have to worry about blending your foundation. While
you apply foundation and blend it correctly, most of the concealer gets
removed.

Layer Concealers to
Hide Problem Areas

In order to fight redness, you need a little green, but the
way you apply it is very important. If you’re dealing with acne, try one of the
best best concealer hacks and dab just a touch of green concealer on top of the
redness, before your regular shade. For really dark under eye circles, used a
salmon or peach concealer. If you want to correct uneven skin tone, then a
yellow concealer is the best option.

A divorce is a very stressful experience that leaves many
women emotionally vulnerable, so getting back to dating isn’t exactly the
easiest thing. There are many mistakes you can make that will keep you single
or just prevent you from finding the right guy.

In order to increase your chances for a successful
relationship, it’s important to know and avoid the most common dating mistakes
after divorce. From starting a rebound relationship too quickly to testing
everyone you date, here’s what not to do when you want to date again.

1. Dating Before You’re
Prepared

Taking your time to get ready for a new relationship is very
important. It doesn’t matter if your ex has already moved on, it’s not a
contest. Focus on the lessons you learned from the failed marriage in order to
prepare yourself for dating again. If you’re lonely, spend more time with
friends instead of starting a relationship before you’re ready.

2. Expecting the New Guy
to Fix Your Heart

Healing a broken heart is up to you. One of the biggest dating
mistakes after divorce is thinking that once you find the right guy everything
will fall into place. You can’t depend on a new boyfriend to help you work
through the pain and the baggage of your divorce. Setting expectations that are
too high will result in disappointment and more heartache.

3. Blaming Everything on
Your Ex

Published On 09 Sep 2013

For some designers the New York Fashion Week spring 2014 edition was the perfect occasion to explore their optimistic side and bring a myriad of vibrant, electric pieces into the spotlight. The desire to bring upbeat accents and explore interesting cultural influences was reflected through refreshing stylistic perspectives that uncovered a rather unexpected but fabulous side of the labels’ aesthetic core. If these spring 2014 collections are any indication, we’re in for an exciting and complex style treat for the warm months of 2014:

NYFW Spring 2014 Collection: Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 Collection

For the spring /summer 2014 season, the designer chose to leave punk influences aside in favor of something a little different. This time, she found inspiration in Mexico and strong Latin American women like Frida Kahlo and Bianca Jagger. The line revolved around modern feminine pieces with a sporty twist. Elaborate floral embroidery, mesh jackets, chic artisanal details, cool knee-high sandals and cutout boots were among the most memorable elements of the star’s show. Perhaps the outfit that best reflected the theme was the whimsical T-shirt with the message “Let’s go to Mexico” paired with an elegant bright yellow dress and a sporty jacket.

The Paris Fashion Week spring 2014 edition might have just began but it already brought a variety of cool alternatives into the spotlight.

Published On 26 Sep 2013

Emma Watson poses for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit latest issue and talks about Livia Firth’s design challenge (Green Carpet Challenge (GCC)). The 23 year old star poses in five gorgeous dresses made by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Roland Mouret. Needless to say, she looks absolutely amazing in these chic alternatives.

The “Harry Potter” actress is no stranger to sustainable fashion. In 2011, she visited a Bangladesh factory as part of the People Tree campaign she created and witnessed firsthand the effect that fair trade makes on the people’s lives. Furthermore, around the same time she collaborated with Alberta Ferretti for a similar initiative.

Ever since, she has began questioning the current state of affairs: “I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

Comfort Foods You’ll Regret Eating

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 06 Jan 2015

When you’re choosing the wrong comfort food, you can end up
feeling guilty for all the extra calories. Avoid that problem by being more
careful about your choices, and adapting comfort food to avoid the high amounts
of carbs and saturated fats.

Find out which are usually the worst comfort foods, with a
single serving sometimes delivering more calories than you need in a day. Try
these helpful tips to make your favorite comfort foods less dangerous for your
waistline and you’ll be able to get the best of both worlds.

Mac and Cheese

Drenched in fatty cheese, this comfort food is even enriched
with bacon in some recipes, resulting in an absolute caloric disaster. In order
to tone down the fat, don’t use extra cheese and forget about processed meat.
Instead, make it with whole wheat pasta and add some veggies like carrots or
spinach. You can also use less regular cheese and mix it with a low-fat yogurt
to keep the calorie count down.

Fried Chicken and
Waffles

From the refined carbs to the trans fats, this classic is definitely
one of the worst comfort foods when it comes to calories and nutritional value.
Making the waffles with whole wheat flour and baking the chicken instead of
deep frying it can definitely make this treat healthier. However, you should
always stick to reasonable portions.

10 Ways You’re Ruining Your Nails

Posted In Nails / Nail Care
Published On 06 Jan 2015

Taking good care of your nails can prevent a lot of
problems, from changes in color to brittleness, which is why it’s important to
avoid a few bad nail habits, particularly if you keep them covered with polish
or acrylics most of the time.

Find out which bad ideas to avoid when it comes to your
nails, so you can make sure they’ll stay healthy and look great, even without
any polish. From skipping important steps in the manicure process to getting
rough when you file them or remove polish or fake nails, here are the habits
that can threaten your nails.

1. Skipping the Base Coat

Even if you’re going for a subtle shade, the base coat is
very important to the end result. It doesn’t just protect your nails from
staining, it can also help the polish adhere better to your nails. If you skip
it, you risk yellowing your nails, and you’ll notice chips and other issues
with the polish sooner.

2. Not Cleaning Your
Nails Before Polish

If you start painting your nails right after you’ve
moisturized your hands with lotion, you’re making a big mistake. It’s one of
the bad nail habits that will also effect the time your manicure looks
flawless, because any moisturizer or lotion acts as a barrier between your
nails and polish, base coats and other nail products. Use a little nail polish
remover to make sure they’re completely oil free before applying any polish or
coat.

3. Skipping the Top Coat

How to Feel Comfortable in High Heels

Posted In Fashion and Style / Designer Shoes
Published On 05 Jan 2015

After finding the perfect high heels, you sometimes discover
that they’re wreaking havoc on your feet. Don’t suffer for fashion when you
have plenty of options to also feel comfortable while looking your best in sexy
heels.

From the right way to walk to products that help you avoid a
wide range of foot issues, here’s how to feel comfortable in high heels, while
also looking amazing. Try these great tips to avoid foot pain and other
problems while you’re rocking gorgeous heels.

Walk the Right Way

A big part of feeling comfortable when you’re in high heels
is knowing how to walk correctly in them. Keeping a straight posture is very
important, but so is taking smaller steps than you would in more comfortable
shoes. Both these tips can help you reduce pressure on your spine, knees and
feet, so practice in front of the mirror and you’ll get a sexy strut while also
reducing the risk of discomfort.

Walking In High Heels

Choose Your Heels
Wisely

When you’re wondering how to feel comfortable in high heels,
it’s very important to acknowledge that pointy toes are the worst for your feet.
Round-toed shoes, or heels with open toes are generally more comfortable. If
you’re attending an event where you’ll have to stand a lot, avoid pointy toed
heels, particularly if you have wide feet.

Vintage Clothing Care Tips and Tricks

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 05 Jan 2015

If you want to get the most out of your vintage purchases,
you have to know how to take care of them correctly. From cleaning to storing,
vintage clothes need special care and attention in order to stay beautiful.

Check out some of the best vintage clothing care tips, from washing
instructions to ironing tips and storage solutions. While gentle hand washing is
the safest option when it comes to keeping your vintage buys looking their best
so they add to your style for a long way.

Don’t Just Check
Labels

While the label can certainly provide useful cleaning
information, one of the most important vintage clothing care tips is using your
best judgment. Clothes made with more than one fabric should be cleaned very
carefully, and some trims or buttons can also cause problems. Metallic buttons
should be removed if you plan on machine watching. When it doubt, go for dry
cleaning.

Know Your Fabrics

Machine washing vintage clothes is always risky, so it’s
usually better to go for a cooler temperature and sometimes even avoid drying. While
cotton and polyester usually handle machine washing well, here are some vintage
clothing cleaning tips for different fabrics:

10 Tricks to Wear Bold Lipstick

Posted In Makeup / Lip Makeup
Published On 05 Jan 2015

When you’re experimenting with bolder shades of lipstick for
the first few times, don’t go for the high pigmented colors right away. A
better way to get used to bold lipstick is to start with sheer coverage and
slowly build up more color with a gloss.

If you’re ready for a more dramatic look, find out how to
wear bold lipstick, from selecting the right shade to making sure that it stays
put throughout the day without the need for constant reapplying.

1. Find the Right Shade
for Your Skin Tone

Making the perfect choice for your skin tone is the most
important step. For fair or very light skin, pinks are excellent, while a
bright orange lip might be less suited to your complexion. For light skin, you
can experiment with many shades, just like with dark skin, so don’t be afraid
to experiment with bold pinks and reds. Tan skin or medium skin works best with
orange shades, but pinks should be avoided.

2. Bold for Thin
Lips

If you have thin or asymmetrical lips, the right answer to
the question of how to wear bold lipstick is… with a lot of care. The darker you go,
the thinner your lips will look. A matte finish will also have the same effect.
So to make bold shades for you, choose lighter colors and always finish with a
gloss.

3. Coordinate Your
Colors

How to Tell Him It’s Over

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 30 Dec 2014

Breaking up is rarely easy, and it can hit your guy
particularly hard if he doesn’t expect it at all. Figuring out how to tell him
it’s over is important before you actually do it, in order to minimize the
impact of the break-up on both of you.

Whether you plan on staying friends with your future ex or
not, it’s important to break up in a kind way. Respect the good moments you
shared by breaking up with a little care.

Make Sure It’s What
You Want

If you’re completely convinced that you want the break-up,
it’s important to show it. That means paying attention to your words and your
actions. Don’t use “maybe” and don’t make him think there’s a chance of wining
you back. Once you’ve made your decision, don’t sugarcoat it. Staying friends
rarely happens right after a break-up, so if you want to end it, give him some
space before reaching out again.

Avoid One of the Worst
Possible Moments

There’s never a good time for getting dumped, but when you’re
wondering how to tell him it’s over, make sure that you avoid a truly bad one. Don’t
break the news to him on a holiday or when you’re surrounded by family. If he’s
having health issues, it’s up to you to decide how long you stick around, but
don’t allow him to emotionally blackmail you to stay together just because he’s
having some trouble at the moment.

Don’t Spread the News
Before Telling Him

10 Blush Hacks That Will Change Your Makeup Game

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 30 Dec 2014

Picking the right blush for your skin type and finding the
perfect brush are just the first two steps in making the most out of your
blush. From applying correctly for your face shape to making your own blush
from natural pigments, try these easy ideas.

With the help of the best blush hacks, you’ll get more that
perfect application. These simple tips and tricks for using blush on your
cheeks, and even your lips, will help expand your makeup repertoire for more
glamorous looks.

Turn Lipstick into
Blush

Whether you’re out of blush or you just didn’t think you’d
need a touch up when you left home, your lipstick can come to the rescue.
Unless it’s a very dark shade, you can turn your lipstick into an instant cream
blush. All you need to do is apply a little bit on the back of your hand, then
use one or two fingers to apply a small amount on your cheeks and blend it
really well.

Get the Right Look
for Your Face Shape

One of the best blush hacks is applying it based on your
face shape, not just on the look you want to achieve. If your face is oval, start
with the apples of your cheeks and swipe it a bit upward. For round faces, the
best place to wear blush is along your cheekbones, for a slimming effect. If
you have a square face, stick to just the apples. For a heart-shaped face,
apply it under the apples of your cheeks and gently blend it upwards.

What Products You Should and Shouldn’t Mix in Your Skin Care

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Tips for Great Complexion
Published On 29 Dec 2014

Choosing the best skin care products for your skin type should
be the first step in perfecting your beauty routine. Once you know what works
for you, you can also experiment with mixing them, as long as you pay attention
to a few basic tips.

Learn some of the most important dos and don’ts for mixing skin
care products, so you can avoid using ingredients that “cancel” each other out
or similar ingredients that can cause dryness or redness when used together.

Do Pay Attention to
Ingredients

Start analyzing your skin care products carefully and you’ll
be able to mix and match them more successfully. Some products will fight each
other and your skin won’t benefit from either, while others can be too
effective and cause irritation. Pay close attention to all the ingredients in
your cosmetics and you’ll be less likely to make a damaging mistake.

Don’t Use Vitamin C
with AHAs

When you’re mixing skin care products, vitamin C and alpha
hydroxy acids should never be mixed. AHAs can destabilize vitamin C, removing
its power as an antioxidant. If you use them in separate products that you apply
at the same time, you might also cause irritation, from redness to peeling.
Make sure that you keep them separate in your skin care routine.

Don’t Mix Retinol
with Acids

Models Who Dated Leonardo DiCaprio

After 20 years of dating plenty of models, but remaining a
bachelor, Leonardo DiCaprio told CBS This Morning that his priorities when
looking for a relationship include “humility, a sense of humour and not a lot

Types of Men You Should Never Marry

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 20 Sep 2013

We have come up with a list of types of men you should avoid if you want a serious relationship. Got your interest? Grab a pen and a piece of paper and let’s take notes, ladies!

Types of Men to Avoid Marrying

The Toxic Bachelor
This is one of the types of men to avoid. This man is very smart, charming and well – mannered and he will win you over with sweet beautiful words. He would always say he has not found his Mrs. Right yet, thus getting you to make hopes. He’s the type that will not introduce you to his friends and family because he is not prepared to get serious.

Coach Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Campaign

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 20 Sep 2013

Karlie Kloss and Liu Wen front the new Coach fall/winter 2013-2014 campaign lensed by photographer Craig McDean in the Meatpacking District, the West Village, Tribeca, and along the High Line. The theme of the new ads is “New York Stories” and it seems like the renowned ‘It’ girls had a few stories of their own. For both of them, the city seemed fascinating yet neither thought they would be frequently traveling here one day.

Without Reed Krakoff as a creative director, the brand is beginning a new chapter in its history. If the new Coach fall 2013 ads are any indication, the future looks extremely promising. For the cold months of 2013, the label is bringing a variety of ultra chic shoes, handbags and watches with timeless allure.

Even though most of the new offerings have a modern vibe, the new campaign brings a myriad of effortlessly chic ensembles into the spotlight. Creating a modern allure without forgoing versatility seems to be one of the label’s main specialties. Nothing about the outfits in themselves seems extraordinary and yet it’s hard not to want to take a closer look at these gorgeous ensembles.

Online Dating Rules for Women

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 19 Sep 2013

Let’s face it, online dating is probably your best shot at meeting Mr. Right these days. However, you need to learn pretty fast how to sort the wheat from the chaff. Here are some basic online dating do’s and don’ts to help you navigate the murky waters of cyber-dating.

Rules for Online Dating: DOs

1. Be honest
No.1 on our online dating rules list: Write an honest description and post a recent photo of yourself. Don’t make yourself taller, thinner or blonde-haired just because you assume that’s what men want in a woman. Would you really want to be with a man who judges a book by its cover?

2. Learn the lingo.
Learn to translate the language of online dating profiles into common tongue. If he describes himself as “cuddly”, read “chubby”. If he says “I’ve been told I’m handsome”, read “by his mother”.

There are a couple of interesting similarities between the London Fashion Week spring 2014 and New York Fashion Week collections. One of them is the strong focus on athletic influences, which defined the lines of many brands. If New York Fashion Week focused on the casual side of style, at the London fashion shows, sportswear accents were merged with elegant vibes, for a completely different vibe. Here are some of the brands that managed to bring a series of thought-provoking alternatives:

10 Best Relationship Hacks to Keep Love Alive

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 22 Dec 2014

Making a little effort goes a long way in any relationship,
so if you want to become or stay a happy couple, trying a few relationship life
hacks can certainly help. There are plenty of things you can hack for the
better in a relationship and trying them even once can have a positive effect.

From knowing how to pick your battles to avoiding a few
negative situations that don’t benefit anyone, here are some of the best
relationship hacks. Try these simple tips and your relationship could easily
move on to the next level.

1. Have a Present Ready
for a Bad Day

It doesn’t have to be an expensive present or even an
object. But when you feel like your significant other is having a bad day, make
an effort to help him out. From comfort food to a back rub or an object that
could instantly bring a smile, have a plan for helping your partner overcome a bad
time.

2. Banish “I Told You So”

Being a gracious winner is one of the best relationship
hacks. Gloating when you’re right should not be a part of your relationship. If
you’re in the wrong, don’t be afraid to admit it. However, when you’re right,
just let it go. “I told you so” or any other way of rubbing his nose in it will
only create more tension and conflict.

3. Share Physical
Experiences

Meet Fergie’s Baby Boy, Axl!

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 18 Sep 2013

Fergie and Josh Duhamel introduced their baby boy, Axl on social media. It’s been three weeks since the two have welcomed their bundle of joy (who was apparently named after Guns‘N Roses singer Axl Rose) and it seems that the happy parents have finally felt ready to present him to the world, even though a tweet from Josh posted on September 16 suggested otherwise: “@iansfans_: @joshduhamel when we see a photo of your baby? Right now we just want him all to ourselves.” Fortunately for curious fans everywhere, the couple quickly had a change of heart.

The proud parents shared two photos from the first days of Axl’s life on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Furthermore, the two adopted a humorous tone, which suggests their new role hasn’t taken its toll on their energy just yet. The captions read “Axl Jack Duhamel Day 1 Life is good #paparazziyoucanleaveourhousenow.” and “Axl Jack Duhamel. Day 2 of life. Hearing test complete. All systems go. #chillin.”

Baby Axl

The adorable baby boy was received with a lot of warmth, as expected. Many of the fans noticed that the boy takes after his father and appreciated the clever hashtags. Though parenthood is a new role for both of them, the two are determined to make sure they are the best parents they can be. “It’s very important to me that we raise this kid right,”Josh stated earlier this year, also implying he’d like to have more children before Axl was born: “[Fergie] looks like she’s ready to go! She looks so damn cute. I’m going to miss seeing her walk around preggers. She’s been really cool throughout this whole thing. It’s been a delight actually, which is good because she’s hopefully going to want another one soon.”

Josh Duhamel With Son Axl

Though Fergie proudly showed her bundle of joy, she has yet to make any statement as to when she will be ready to step back into the spotlight or to show any recent (post baby) pictures of herself .We’re quite sure, however, that when she’ll decide to do it, all cameras will be on her.

How to Handle a Holiday Breakup

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 16 Dec 2014

Ending a relationship is more common around the holidays,
since many couples feel a lot more tension and stress than usual. Whether you’ve
decided to break up or you’ve been dumped unexpectedly, you’re probably
stressing out over it because it’s around the holidays.

Find out how to handle a holiday breakup in order to
navigate through this difficult time without giving up on holiday cheer
completely. It doesn’t matter who initiated the breakup, here are the most
important things that you should focus on.

Consider the
Alternative

Spending the holidays with someone you want out of your life
or having him be there for you while he wishes he was anywhere else do not
sound like good alternatives at all. You might think that ending a relationship
before the holidays is inconsiderate, but it’s much better than doing it in the
middle of any celebration. Once it’s over, you can start focusing on moving on,
because that’s what is really important.

Avoid Any Contact
with Your Ex

If it’s possible, the best way to handle a holiday breakup
is to stop all communication with your ex. It doesn’t matter if you both want
to stay friends. He’s should be completely out of your life right now, and you
can revisit the situation in January. But you don’t need any more grief right
now, so just take a break from all the relationship drama.

10 Healthy Things to Do in Your First Trimester

Posted In Pregnancy and Parenting / Pregnancy Advice
Published On 16 Dec 2014

Your first trimester can be really difficult if you’re
struggling with morning sickness, which affects more than half of all pregnant
women, but it’s also an important time to make some positive changes in your
lifestyle.

Check out some of the most important healthy things to do in
your first trimester, from taking the right supplements to reducing your
caffeine intake. Find out what other good habits can have a positive effect on
your pregnancy, either by reducing the risk of complication or simply by making
you feel more comfortable.

1. Start Taking Prenatal
Vitamins

Folic acid and vitamin D are among the most important
nutrients your body needs in the first trimester. While the necessary vitamin D
(10mcg per day) is usually included in most prenatal vitamins, folic acid
(400mcg per day) might not be, so you could need a separate supplement. If you
haven’t been taking folic acid while trying to conceive, you should start as
soon as possible in order to reduce the risk of your baby developing brain and
spinal cord issues later on.

2. Reduce Your Caffeine
Intake

If you can’t get out of bed in the morning without a cup of
coffee, you can still have that. But going over 200mg of caffeine per day
increase your risk of pregnancy problems and even miscarriage. One of the
healthiest things to do in your first trimester is to keep your caffeine
consumption under control, so that also means checking labels on sodas and
teas.

3. Improve Your Diet

Vintage Shopping Mistakes You Might Be Making

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 16 Dec 2014

Shopping vintage can be a more challenging experience than
just going to the mall, but it’s definitely worth it when you’re looking for a
unique look. Whether you shop in boutiques, thrift stores or online, it’s
important to avoid a few errors that most vintage shoppers regret.

Discover the worst vintage shopping mistakes and improve
your shopping experience by making sure that you’re only spending your money on
quality items that you’ll get to wear plenty of times. Pay attention to these
details when you shop vintage and you won’t end up with buyer’s remorse.

Never Trust the Size on
the Label

Purchasing vintage clothing can be tricky, even when you
find plenty of items that fit your style. While sizing varies from brand to
brand, there have also been plenty of changes to the system over the years. The
actual measurements of vintage clothes are much more important than the size
printed on the label. Buying vintage clothes one size too small is never a good
idea.

Not Checking the
Seams

One of the worst vintage shopping mistakes is ignoring the
seams when you’re in a store and can actually inspect them thoroughly, as
opposed to online purchases that are always risky. Some vintage garments have
been altered, and restoring them to their original state can be very difficult.
Checking all the seams is a must when you have that option.

ended badly.

Elegance and femininity played a crucial role at the London Fashion Week spring 2014 edition. Designers brought a fascinating array of elegant alternatives which proved that, when it comes to spring fashion, romance will never be out of style. The multitude of gorgeous options that stole the spotlight at London Fashion Week so far made it crystal clear: incurable romantics with a love for all things modern will be truly spoiled in 2014.

London Fashion Week Spring 2014: Antonio Berardi Collection

Antonio Berardi focused on femininity with a modern vibe for his spring 2014 line, without focusing as much on cocktail dresses as he did in the past seasons. His show notes promoted “a more laissez-faire attitude” and this is exactly what the spring 2014 collection offered. The line brought a myriad of sportswear-inspired sweaters, chic biker jackets and even a few high low dresses.

Of course, the designer didn’t abandon eveningwear altogether, bringing some exciting options into the spotlight. As for the color palette, the designer favored pink, white, red and cream tones for the most part. View more from: Antonio Berardi Spring 2014 Collection

Spring 2014 Feminine Designs

Designer Christopher Bailey was in a romantic mood when he designed the new Burberry spring 2014 collection. The new line was titled “English Rose”, an appropriate title for the multitude of elegant, ladylike ensembles that oozed softness and tenderness. The line brought chic pencil skirts and romantic dresses in gorgeous tones of rosy pink, mint, mauve, pale yellow or periwinkle blue and several slouchy cashmere jackets and lace coatdressses, which replaced the label’s signature military-inspired trenches for the season. For eveningwear, the designer adorned pencil skirts and luxurious coats with colored gems for a more opulent allure.

How to Prevent a Hangover

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 12 Dec 2014

Starting your day hung over is never fun, but there are
plenty of things you can do in order to diminish or just completely prevent
the symptoms of a hangover. The trick is to make sure that you’re making the
right decisions the night before.

Find out how to prevent a hangover, from the simplest tips like
staying hydrated to a few other details that can help you have fun without
paying for it the next day. It’s always better to drink responsibly, but if you
have one too many, here’s how to avoid the hangover altogether.

Stay Hydrated

Since alcohol gets you dehydrated, it can wreak havoc in a
lot of ways. Headaches and dizziness can be reduced or avoided by staying hydrated.
Before you start drinking alcohol, start with a glass of water, then make sure
you alternate between an alcoholic drink and water. You should also order your
drinks on the rocks to make sure that you’re not going to get dehydrated
quickly.

Avoid Dark Beverages

Drinking dark colored alcoholic beverages is more toxic for
your body than lighter or clear ones. That’s because darker beverages contain
congeners, which contribute to your hangover symptoms the next day. In order to
prevent a hangover, you should consider choosing vodka instead of whiskey,
brandy and even tequila.

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 11 Dec 2014

While most New Year’s resolutions don’t last for long, you
can stick to it for much longer if you have the same goals as your partner. The
emotional support can really help you take your resolution well beyond the
second week of January.

Try these New Year’s resolutions for couples or sit down
with your partner and set your own goals, that benefit both of you and the
relationship in the long run. If you don’t really know what kind of resolution
works for a couple, try these simple ideas.

1. Prioritize Positive
Over Negative

Relationship in which partners have more positive
interactions than negative ones are happier, but if the opposite is true, a
break up or divorce is almost inevitable. Focus on the positive aspects of your
relationship and spend more time praising the other than criticizing them. Giving
out at least two compliments for every criticism is a great couples resolution.

2. Make Intimacy a Priority

The level of intimacy in a relationship is build in many
ways, from sharing to sex. Making it a priority is one of the best New Year’s resolutions for couples. Don’t

together for at least 30 minutes a day, or promising to try something new in
the bedroom every 3 months.

10 Foods That Give You a Natural Tan

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 11 Dec 2014

Eating the right fruits and vegetables can have a huge
impact on the health of your skin, but they can also contribute to giving it a
gorgeous glow. Multiple studies have shown that eating these beta-carotene rich
fruits and vegetables can impact the color of your skin in as little as four
weeks (for 5 servings a day).

Rich in carotenoids and antioxidants, the foods that give
you a natural tan include yellow and orange vegetable and fruits, along with
dark green leafy greens. If you don’t want to get a tan naturally and hate self
tanners too, a dietary change could help you get the gorgeous glow you want.

Studies from Bristol University, along with Leeds and Saint
Andrews universities, have actually proven that the golden glow from a good
diet can actually make you look more attractive than the melanin produced by
your skin after exposure to UV radiation. If you’re ready to let your diet get
you the glow you want, here are the best foods that can help.

1. Carrots

One of the vegetables with the highest content of
beta-carotene, carrots are the first choice for giving your skin a natural glow.
However, stick to a single small serving per day, or a few ones per week. Eating too
many carrots can eventually give your skin an orange tint that’s just as bad as
a self-tanning accident.

2. Sweet Potatoes

10 Worst Holiday Gifts for Your Boyfriend

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 11 Dec 2014

If your boyfriend is a great gift giver, you probably want
to match him or even surprise him with the best present ever for the holidays.
However, some of the most common gifts that guys get aren’t that inspired or
appreciated.

Check out some of the worst holiday gifts for your boyfriend,
presents that generally get forgotten right after the holidays. Remember that
if he’s really excited about something and you know exactly what that is, you
don’t have to avoid it, but when you have no idea what to get him, you’ll be
better off avoiding these less than amazing presents.

1. Music

He probably already has everything he needs from his
favorite artists, or he can buy it himself or stream it anytime. Unless you’re
dating a passionate vinyl or CD collector, music isn’t really a great gift. If
you want to really impress him, consider getting tickets for a concert from one
of his favorite bands or artists.

2. Jewelry

Even if he loves bling, jewelry can end up as one of the worst
holiday gifts for your boyfriend. He’ll have to say he likes it, and then he’ll
have to wear it to make you feel appreciated. If you know exactly what he
wants, go for it, but otherwise stay away from jewelry, particularly expensive
watches if you’re not sure what he’d really like to add to his collection.

3. DVD or Blu-Ray Sets

10 Holiday Shopping Mistakes We All Make

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 11 Dec 2014

Finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones can be very
rewarding, but when you’re scheduling your holiday shopping, you have to take a
lot of things into account and plan carefully.

Avoid the biggest holiday shopping mistakes with a few
simple tips. Staying organized and sticking to your budget are a must, but
there are a few other errors that could derail you when you’re shopping for
gifts. Here’s how to avoid them this year.

1. Shopping Too Late

Leaving your holiday shopping to the last minute will
actually get you to spend more money, since you’ll be pressed for time and you’ll
miss out on any early deals. The more you wait, the more you’re likely to
overspend. You won’t avoid crowds, you’ll have a smaller selection to choose
from, and you’ll be paying more! Don’t procrastinate.

2. Not Making a List

If you have to buy presents for more than 5 people, it’s
always better to make a list. Going in unprepared is one of the major holiday
shopping mistakes. Whether you write it down on a piece of paper or keep it on
your smartphone, the list will keep you on track and help you organize your
time in the store better.

Worst Excuses for Breaking Up

Posted In Love and Relationship / Breakups and Divorce
Published On 10 Dec 2014

Being honest can be difficult, but when you decide to end a
relationship, it’s usually better to speak your mind about the reasons that made
you want to break up. If you avoid the real issue and keep making excuses, you’re
doing a disservice to the guy and all his future girlfriends.

While brutal honesty can sometimes be too much, using one of
the worst excuses for breaking up can genuinely leave him confused about your
real reasons. Instead of being vague and using a classic line just to get out
of it, try to be sincere, and avoid these silly excuses.

1. It’s Not You, It’s Me

Going for the vaguest line possible can actually contribute
to the tension of a break up instead of diffusing it. Instead of pulling this
line, that doesn’t really say anything, try to be honest about what he did to
turn you off. If anyone has ever rejected you with this stupid line, then you
know how it feels and shouldn’t use it too.

2. You Deserve Better

Another dumb thing to say, this is one of the worst excuses
for breaking up because it’s showing that you’re a coward about the whole
thing. No variation of this line is acceptable, since it makes your guy feel
like you don’t have any respect for him. It implies that you know what’s best
and you’re acting on behalf of both of you, despite his wishes.

3. I’m Not Ready for a
Relationship Right Now

Exercises to Avoid If You Have Back Problems

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
Published On 10 Dec 2014

Any type of exercise can hurt you and cause pain when you’re
doing it wrong, but some types of exercise are particularly bad for your back,
even if they seem very common and completely benign.

Learn how to avoid exercises that hurt your back, so you’ll
minimize any pain that you’re experiencing, and prevent future problems and
pain. Whether you’ve experienced back pain or just want to make sure that you
won’t, here are the exercises to avoid.

Toe Touches

Part of many aerobic exercise routines, toe touches can
actually be very bad for your lower back, especially if you do them without
stretching first. Touching your toes while keeping your feel straight put a lot
of pressure on your spine, and they can also contribute to overstretching your
ham strings and other muscles. If you experience severe pain that lasts more
than a few minutes after touching your toes, you should stop exercising and see
a doctor.

Sit-Ups

While they’re technically useful for core muscles, sit-ups
are also one of the exercises that hurt your back. If you use your hips while
doing sit-ups, you’re putting pressure on your spinal discs. Crunches can also
contribute to lower back pain. Planks can be a lot better for your abdominal
muscles, while also putting less pressure on your back.

10 Detoxing Mistakes to Avoid

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 10 Dec 2014

While some people think detox diets and cleanses are
overrated, others find them very useful, whether they want to lose weight,
improve their health or simply transition to a more healthy way of eating.

No matter if you want to flush out the toxins with a juice
cleanse, a soup diet or another type of cleanse, the detoxing mistakes to avoid
are the same. Make sure that you’re choosing the right plan for your needs and
that you avoid the common errors which can turn a detox diet into a very
miserable and possibly harmful experience.

1. Picking the Wrong
Detox Plan

Before you start juicing or preparing your detox plan meals,
it’s always important to figure out if you can really benefit from this
particular diet. Do you want to lose weight or kick a harmful habit, like
drinking too much soda? Whatever your reason is for wanting to purge your body
of toxins, it’s important to do the research and set realistic expectations. A
detox plan that doesn’t work with your lifestyle will not be a success.

2. Depriving Yourself of
Important Nutrients

Without the right vitamins and minerals, you won’t really
benefit from the detoxing process, because your metabolism will go into
starvation mode and try to store everything it can, including toxins, as fat.
One of the biggest detoxing mistakes to avoid is depriving yourself of
nutrients that actually help the process along. Make sure that you’re getting
enough vitamins and minerals, but also pay attention to fiber. Without it, your
digestion slows down, and you’re not really getting the toxins out.

3. Aiming for Speed Detoxing

10 Good Reasons to Get a Humidifier

Posted In Travel and Living / Home Decor
Published On 10 Dec 2014

Without a central humidifier, the air in your home can get
very dry in the colder months of the year. Air humidity should be anywhere
between 30 and 50 percent, measured by a hygrometer, according to the Mayo
Clinic, so if you don’t have a central one, you should really consider
investing in an air humidifier.

Whether you choose a steam vaporizer or a more expensive
ultrasonic one, there are many benefits to using a humidifier in your home. You
definitely need one if you have trouble in dealing with static electricity, but
there are lot more top reasons to get a humidifier.

1. Keep Your Skin
Beautiful

Even if you use plenty of moisturizer before you go to bed,
dry air in your bedroom can cause problems from your skin. Your lips and hands
usually dry out first because of a very low humidity level, but dry air can
have a negative impact on your complexion as well. If you’re struggling with
dry, tight or itchy skin in the colder months, your bedroom could definitely
use a humidifier.

2. Avoid Respiratory
Infections

Dry air can actually increase the risk of developing
respiratory infections, and that’s definitely one of the top reasons to get a
humidifier. Without proper moisture in the air, the filtering function of your
nose hairs decreases in efficiency. That means it’s easier for flu and cold
causing viruses to get inside your body and cause trouble.

Troubles Faster

puffy. By reducing them in your diet for a few days, you’ll really see a
difference.

and salt to trans fats and heavily processed foods, here are the worst choices
for looking fresh.

collagen in your skin, making it lose its elasticity. Whether you’re eating too
many sweets or a lot of carbohydrates, the result is the same, inflammation and
a lot of advanced glycogen end products (AGEs), which can contribute to sagging
skin and puffy bags under your eyes. Avoid foods with a lot of sugar particularly
in the morning, since they’ll fuel more sugar cravings throughout the day.

2. Salty Foods

If you’re eating too much sodium in your diet, you’re not
just risking heart disease, but also dehydration. Foods that make you look
tired can have high levels of salt, whether you realize it or not. If you’re
not careful and you get dehydrated after eating too much sodium, your skin won’t
look its best. Even if you won’t go on a low sodium diet, eat less salt before
a big event.

Best (or Worst?) Celebrity Makeup Fails

While most red carpet fails are wardrobe malfunctions, some
celebrities experience a different kind of embarrassing moment, when their
makeup looks really bad in front of the photographers’ flashlights.

See a few of the most memorable red carpet makeup fails,
from Angelina Jolie to Lindsay Lohan, makeup mistakes that completely ruined
their look. Makeup artists may have their bad days, but these red carpet fails

shoulders.

The 10 Worst Things to Say to Your Boyfriend

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 08 Dec 2014

Even if things are going great in your relationship, a few
topics of conversation can create tension, from a cringe worthy moment to a
full blown fight. Be tactful and stay away from the things that most men usually
react to in a very negative way.

Here are the worst things to say to your boyfriend, topics
and phrases to avoid if you want to maintain a positive atmosphere in your
relationship.

1. “Promise me you’ll
keep this to yourself…”

Even if you’ve been together for a long time, you don’t have
to share absolutely everything with your guy, especially when that includes
secrets or details that are embarrassing for other people in your life. Don’t
unburden yourself when it comes to your friends secrets by saddling him with
the burden of keeping quiet about it.

2. “I’m fine”

A passive aggressive attitude doesn’t contribute anything
healthy to your relationship, so you should avoid it. “I’m fine” is one of the worst
things to say to your boyfriend, particularly when you both know it’s a lie. If
you don’t want to talk about it right away, simply tell him you’ll discuss it
later. But expecting him to read your mind will get you nowhere, especially
when the issue could be easily solved with good communication.

3. “My ex used to…”

Signs That Show He’s Using You

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 06 Dec 2014

Whether he just wants sex, money, a housekeeper, or uses you
to fulfill some other emotional need, you should never stick around when you see
the signs that he’s not into you for you. Even if you really like him, starting
out a relationship by using your partner is a huge red flag.

Learn how to spot the signs he’s using you and make a run
for it as soon as you confirm it. Whatever his reasons are, actions speak
louder than words, and unless he’s an amazing con artist, he’ll show his true
colors sooner or later.

He Doesn’t Really Let
You In

When your instinct is telling you that something is off,
believe it. When he doesn’t let you in, or you feel that he’s putting up a
facade instead of being his true self, he might be hiding things because he
plans on using you. He may have commitment issues because of previous
relationships, so don’t just to the conclusion that he’s horrible based on this
sign alone.

He Changes Quickly

If he seems like the perfect guy at first, but then he
changes, that could be one of the signs he’s using you. When he’s after your
money, he’ll pay at first, and when he just wants sex, he’ll try to get you to
believe that he’s really into you, but the facade always drops. If he’s not the
guy you wanted, then just move on.

Causing It

Getting to the root of hair loss is very important, and the
first step should be analyzing your hairstyle choices. Harsh chemical
treatments and hairstyles that keep your roots in tension, from cornrows and
weaves to ponytails that are too tight, can be a big problem, but hair loss can
also be caused by a wide variety of medical issues, most of them having hormone
imbalances as a symptom.

2. Stop the Damage

Whatever the cause of your hair loss is, stopping any hair
damage right away is one of the best receding hairline solutions. If the cause
was related to harsh chemicals, heat damage or other hairstyle issues, you
might be able to recover. Stop wearing weaves and extensions or attempting
hairstyles that put a lot of pressure on your hair. Blow dryers can also cause
heat damage, so you might consider air drying your hair.

Best Hairstyles to Sleep In

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Hair Tutorials
Published On 06 Dec 2014

Helping your hair get ready for the next day with a
nighttime hairstyle is a great way to get the texture you want and protect it
from frizz or tangling. Discover how to set your hair and prepare it for your
morning styling while you get your beauty sleep.

Check out the best hairstyles to sleep in from the simple
bun to more complex hairstyles, each with their different benefits for your
tresses. If you take a little time to care for your hair before you go to
sleep, you’ll enjoy gorgeous hair the next day.

The Loose Bun

One way of protecting your hair from frizz and tangling is
the classic loose bun. You can apply any product you want before letting your
hair rest, from leave-in moisturizers to frizz taming lotions, and this simple
trick will work even better. After brushing your hair, gather it as you would
for a high ponytail, then secure the ends in a loose bun shape.

The Plait

Get a wavy texture with one of the best hairstyles to sleep
in, the simple plait. If you have trouble with tangling, then a simple plait at
the back of your head is an excellent way to prevent it, while also getting a
few loose waves (if your natural hair texture is straight). Brushing your hair
in the morning can also reduce the wavy texture if you don’t like the results.

Why You Should Start Drinking Bone Broth

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 06 Dec 2014

Bone broth is becoming a major diet trend, even though it’s
not a weight loss solution. Instead, the benefits of bone broth have more to do
with your overall health and even the way you look.

If you’re curious about the major bone broth benefits, find
out what the advocates of this food, including GAPS and Paleo diet supporters,
have to say about this. From the nutritional benefits of bone broth to the
right way to cook it, here’s what you need to know about it.

What Is Bone Broth?

Made by boiling animal bones on low heat for a long time,
bone broth comes highly recommended by many nutritionists. The benefits of bone
broth stem from the fact that the animal bones, usually poultry or beef, start
breaking down, releasing important nutrients. Gelatin from bones makes the bone
broth jiggly when cooled down.

Bone Broth Nutritional
Benefits

Calcium phosphate and collagen are among the most important nutrients
released when you cook animal bones for a long time, but the most important
nutritional benefit of this food is the fact that all the minerals extracted
from bones are very easy to absorb. Bone broth benefits don’t just include minerals,
since the bones also release collagen, along with compounds that reduce
inflammation.

Reasons Why He Won’t Ask You Out

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 05 Dec 2014

When he seems interested but doesn’t actually ask you out or
ask for your phone number, you’re left wondering what went wrong. Asking him
out if your really like him is definitely an option, but you can also make
things easier for him if you know what the problem is.

Check out the most common reasons why he won’t ask you out,
and find out what you can do about it, short of asking him out yourself. Stop
wondering about why he’s sending mixed messages and figure out what you can do
to make it happen.

He’s Not Sure You’re Into
Him

Fear of rejection is a big thing even for men who would
never admit to ever experiencing it. Even if you’ve flirted a little, he can
still be unsure whether he’d actually get a “yes”, and that may be holding him
back. Using subtle body language cues to let him know you’re interested is
probably the best way to go, from smiling to making sure that your torso is
turned to him and you’re not in a defensive pose (crossed arms etc.)

He Doesn’t Know How
to Approach You

When you’re still strangers, one of the biggest reasons why
he won’t ask you out is the fact that he doesn’t know exactly how to make it
happen. Smiling and starting a conversation yourself is a good idea if you want
to make it happen.

Worst Foods to Eat Before Running

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 05 Dec 2014

What you eat before a run is very important, since you need
a lot of energy to get a good workout while jogging. Some foods are bad because
they can cause cramps and nausea, others simply don’t provide you with right nutrients
and slow down your digestion.

Whether you like to run in the morning or in the afternoon,
here are the worst foods to eat before running. In the best case scenario, you
shouldn’t really eat anything one or two hours before jogging, but if you do,
here are the ones you should definitely avoid.

Salads

Even if a salad is a great meal, you shouldn’t have one
before jogging. The reason is that most salads don’t usually provide enough
carbs, which your body needs before a workout, and because you’ll might also
get too much fiber. Vegetables like artichoke, green peas, broccoli, Brussels
spouts and sweet corns have way too much fiber, and can cause stomach problems
during your run. You should also avoid eating fiber-heavy legumes like split
peas, lentils, and all types of beans, from lima beans to black beans.

Dairy

Full-fat dairy is definitely one of the worst foods to eat
before running, because its digestion can also cause cramps while you jog. Natural
Greek yogurt is your best best, along with skim or 1% percent milk. But you’re
better off avoiding any dairy before a run and going for milks made from soy,
almond or rice if you need a base for a smoothie.

Dyed Armpit Hair – How to Do It and Why

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 05 Dec 2014

Dyed armpit hair is becoming a phenomenon on Tumblr and
Instagram. The divisive reactions to it show that it’s more than just a beauty
fad, since most of the women who have tried it consider it liberating. Eschewing
the social beauty norms is the main reason behind this seemingly crazy trend, but
there’s also a fun element to it.

Growing out your armpit hair is already considered
subversive, but dying it in vibrant rainbow colors is definitely making a
statement. Find out more about the dyed armpit hair trend, from the why to the
how.

Dyed Armpit Hair –
Why Do It

The reasons why some women would quickly jump on this trend
aren’t that complicated to understand. From rejecting the mainstream beauty
ideal to feeling in control on your own body, the dyed armpit hair trend is a
hit with social justice warriors on Tumblr.

Being In Control of
Your Body

While women’s rights continue to remain a political issue,
and access to contraception and abortion are still under attack, growing armpit
hair out is definitely a way to reject the patriarchal structures that are
still in place. Using a bright rainbow color to make it stand out can be
empowering and even a lot of fun.

10 Beauty Mistakes Guys Notice and Absolutely Hate

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 04 Dec 2014

You might think that only a woman would notice certain
makeup and beauty mistakes, but the truth is that most guys can notice them
too… and they don’t like them. When you’re going on a date or even to a
singles bar or party, make sure that you avoid these common errors.

Learn which beauty mistakes guys notice you have to stay
away from if you want to impress him. From a caked on base to a cloud of
perfume, here’s what not to do when you’re meeting a guy you hope to attract.

1. Foundation Mistakes
Guys Notice

Your foundation can definitely raise a red flag if it’s too
dark, but the caked on look is also very bad. You can even get a too
heavy
finish without foundation, by piling on too much concealer, tinted
moisturizer
or powder. Stick to a lightweight base and make sure you use concealer
thoughtfully. You don’t want to stain his pillow cases if you end up
spending
the night.

2. Bad Eyelash Choices

Using too much mascara can quickly turn into one of the beauty
mistakes guys notice. But you can also overdo your eyelashes by using the wrong
kind of falsies. Opt for strips, but don’t use the full one. Instead, opt for a
more subtle look with just a bit of extra volume at the outer corners of your eyes.
Avoid any clumping and flaking when it comes to mascara by choosing a
waterproof version.

How to Avoid Holiday Fights

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 01 Dec 2014

Winter holidays are a stressful time for everyone, from
families to single people, but they can put extra pressure on your
relationship. With a little planning and compromise, you can make sure that the
holiday stress won’t have you screaming at each other for no good reason.

Learn how to avoid holiday fights by giving each other
enough space and making sure that you focus on communication so things don’t
get out of control.

Compromise for the
Perfect Holiday Plan

Some of the worst fights can actually start before the
holidays, when you’re struggling to figure out who’s family you’ll spend the
special days with. If your important holiday destinations are very far apart,
you’ll have to rotate every year, but when you can attend more than one party
or see more family in shorter visits, that’s the right way to go.

Discuss the Budget
and Stick to It

If your finances are tied together, one of the easiest ways to
avoid holiday fights is to plan your budget in advance and stick to it.
Avoiding impulse purchases or big unplanned expenses if you’re throwing a
holiday party. It might also be wise to stick to a budget when it comes to
buying presents for each other, so neither of you overspends.

Published On 01 Dec 2014

Whether you had to get a second and third helping of
stuffing or went too far with the eggnog at work related
holiday parties, your body could use a little rest after all the fatty foods
and drinks and big portions.

Instead of going on a full cleanse with a severe calorie
restriction, try a few post holiday detox tips that can help your digestive
system get back on track without shocking it too much. With the help of these
simple detox solutions, you’ll keep your skin looking good and maintain your
energy levels.

1. Drink Another Glass
of Water

There’s nothing that helps your body more in this time of
the year than staying hydrated. After you’ve had your fill of holiday drinks,
step away from the soda can and drink water instead. 

It will help flush out
toxins faster and you’ll be less likely to overeat again, no matter how
delicious those leftovers look.

2. Go Alkaline

10 Makeup Mistakes That Make You Look Tired

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 01 Dec 2014

Some makeup mistakes make you look older, but other bad
choices can draw attention to any redness in your eyes or dark under eye
circles, giving you a tired look that you definitely don’t want.

If you want to always look fresh and energetic, here are the
makeup mistakes that make you look tired. Make sure you avoid them and make the
right choices for your makeup in order to avoid looking like you barely slept
last night.

1. You’re Making
Unflattering Color Choices

When your makeup kit could easily be described as fifty
shades of grey, you need to step back and choose some more vibrant shades. Any
makeup color with grey undertones can give you a tired look, but that’s not the
only mistake in your color palette that can have a negative effect. Using just
soft natural hues can also have the same effect. As a good rule of thumb, don’t
stick to a single color family when putting together your look.

2. Your Shade of
Concealer Is Off

Picking the wrong concealer shade for your under-eye area is
one of the worst makeup mistakes that make you look tired. It doesn’t matter if
the concealer is too light or too dark, the effect will be the same. Make sure
that your concealer is the right shade and apply it in a room with good
lighting to create a natural effect.

Best Spa Treatments for Your Skin Type

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Bath and Spa
Published On 01 Dec 2014

Knowing what kind of facial works best for your skin type
can be just as important as building your entire skin care routine around your
skin type. While you can trust a licensed cosmetologist at a spa, it’s always
good to know what your skin needs before scheduling a facial.

Find out how to choose the best spa treatments for your skin
type and make the most out of your spa experience. From the main skin types to
a few other issues, including acne and tired skin, here are the options that can
lead to the best results for your complexion.

Spa Treatments for Normal
Skin

When you’re not having big issues with either dry patched or
oily areas, you can always go for a classic facial, that includes steaming and
exfoliation. You won’t have to worry about the best spa treatments for your
skin type, since your complexion is the easiest to work with. If you see good
results after your first facial, consider making it a monthly habit, in order
to make sure your skin is always looking its best.

Spa Treatments for Dry
Skin

If your main concern is dry skin, you can have issues with
exfoliation, and it’s always better to choose a facial that chemically
exfoliates your skin. Your top choice should be a fruit enzyme exfoliant
treatment, that provides excellent results without drying out your skin even
more. Oxygen facials are another excellent option, since they help improve
circulation and also keep your skin moisturized. You can also opt for hardening
facial masks, layered over a good facial serum to increase the absorption rate.

Paleo Diet Pros and Cons

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 30 Nov 2014

Advocating a return to how people used to eat more than
10,000 years ago, the Paleo diet includes major dietary restrictions, from grains
and legumes to dairy, and promises to reduce the risk of heart disease and type
2 diabetes.

Called a fad diet by many nutritionists, the Paleo diet has
plenty of ardent fans, who swear by its great effects when it comes to weight
loss and reducing the risk of many health issues. Discover the Paleo diet pros
and cons before deciding if this way of eating is the right choice for your
weight loss goal and lifestyle.

Paleo Diet Pros

Since the Paleo diet is fashioned after dietary options that
go back to when human were hunters and gatherers, most grains are forbidden on
this weight loss plan. If a diet that mostly consists of meat, fish, along with
fruits and vegetables sounds great to you, the Paleo diet might be a good
option.

It Probably Won’t
Leave You Hungry

One of the biggest Paleo diet pros is the fact that it’s
high in both fiber and protein, making every meal filling and keeping you safe
from hunger pangs. If you’re willing to invest in the Paleo lifestyle and say
goodbye to grains and refined sugar, the diet also promises a reduced risk of
diabetes and keeping your blood sugar level.

10 Reasons to Stop Looking for Mr. Right

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 30 Nov 2014

Whether you think Mr. Right actually exists or you’re
subconsciously craving your own Prince Charming, the quest to find the perfect
guy rarely ends in happiness. There are plenty of things that can get in the
way, from unrealistic expectations to wasted opportunities.

Check out the most important reasons to stop looking for Mr.
Right and decide if you need a change in the way you’re trying to find your
perfect guy. Whether you still believe in Prince Charming or not, here are the
ways in which you may be sabotaging your own happiness by looking for a man who
doesn’t exist.

1. Your Expectations Might Be Too High

Even if you managed to avoid the childish concept of happily
ever after, romantic comedies can instill some pretty high expectations when it
comes to the man you want to spend the rest of your life with. When no guy seems
to measure up to your expectations, that could very well mean that your
standards are too high.

2. You’re Not Ready for
What You Want

One of the most obvious reasons to stop looking for Mr.
Right is the fact that what you want could be very different from what you
really need. Even the happiest relationships need a lot of compromise, so you
might not be ready to accept that the perfect guy, the one who can read your
thoughts, does not exist.

88% of women wear too small shoes and the result is that over half of them have
to deal with bunions and other foot problems.

too snuggly, you’re risking more than bunions, since wearing the wrong shoes in
the long run can also squeeze the toes into an unnatural position. Find out how

risk of foot problems.

avoid foot pain caused by tight shoes, whether you’re wearing mostly flats or
want to rock stilettos. From using heat and cold temperatures to stretch your
shoes to learning how to determine if shoes will be too tight when you buy
them, try these simple ways of dealing with too small shoes.

Use a Hair Dryer

One way to get small shoes to fit is to heat them with a
hair dryer. Since many shoes have heat sensitive glue, you’ll have to be extra
careful. This trick doesn’t work for plastic or PVC shoes and it could ruin
vintage shoes. But most leather shoes can be heated a bit on the outside
without any issues. If you’re wondering how to wear too small shoes, simply put
on a thick pair of socks, stick your feet in the shoes and heat the problem
areas. Keep them on as they cool for the best effect.

10 Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Calories

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 22 Nov 2014

When you go on a juice cleanse or a drastic crash diet, you
know you’re not getting enough calories, but they only last for a few days.
However, plenty of diets can restrict calories too much, especially if you have
an active lifestyle.

Discover the signs you’re not getting enough calories and
make sure that you’re increasing your calorie intake to avoid any health
issues. Even if you’re not super strict about calories, you might also be
running on a deficit, so the signals should make you reconsider your weight
loss plan.

1. Despite Dieting, Your
Weight Is Stable

Once you subject your body to calorie restrictions for too
long, your metabolism basically goes into hibernation, storing everything it
gets as fat.

10 Common Black Friday Shopping Mistakes

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 21 Nov 2014

Black Friday can be the perfect time to get excellent deals,
but it can also lead to bad impulse purchases that you end up regretting. If
you want the best shopping experience, here’s what you need to know.

By knowing and avoiding the biggest Black Friday shopping
mistakes, you’ll be able to make the most out of sales, whether you’re looking
for the perfect winter coat or high end beauty products with a big discount. Making
a plan in advance and sticking to it will help you really take advantage of Black
Friday.

1. Starting Shopping
without a Plan

Once you make your shopping list, you should also work on a
detailed plan that helps you prioritize your purchases and stay on track to get
the discounts you want. If you plan on doing your shopping online, make sure
that you’re logged in and have all the payment info covered before the deals
start coming.

2. Ignoring Your Budget

The best way to take advantage of the big sales is to know
exactly what you want and to stick to your original budget. Going over your
initial budget without getting things you actually want or need is one of the
worst Black Friday shopping mistakes. Focus on the items you want, and don’t get
sidetracked by unexpected purchases.

3. Skipping Comparison

Best Reasons for a Long Engagement

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 21 Nov 2014

When you’re trying to figure out if a shorter engagement is
better or if you should make it longer, it’s important to know all the positive
aspects of waiting before tying the knot.

Learn the best reasons for a long engagement and decide for
yourself if waiting is the best option for you and your fiancé. From removing a
lot of the pressure when it comes to planning the wedding and paying for
everything to a few emotional benefits, here’s why a long engagement might be
the right way to go.

Having the Time to Enjoy
Being Engaged

Most brides barely get to know how being engaged feels like
because they’re too wrapped up in the wedding planning. Taking the time to
enjoy this step in your life is important, especially if you haven’t dated for
that long before deciding that you were meant for each other.

Getting to Really
Know Each Other

If you opt for a short engagement after a few months of
dating, you don’t really know the guy you’re marrying. You might know he’s a
good person, but you don’t know how compatible you really are before you
actually go through many different experiences together. That’s one of the best
reasons for a long engagement, because getting a divorce is a lot harder and more
hurtful than breaking up.

Foundation Hacks That Will Change Your Makeup Rut!

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 21 Nov 2014

Everyone wants the perfect coverage from foundation, but it’s
easier to achieve a glowing look when you know a few simple tricks that make
your makeup routine much more successful.

Whether you prefer liquid, cream or powder foundation, check
out the best foundation hacks and find out how to improve your looks with a few
simple tricks. These life hacks can help you get the most out of your
foundation, spend less time in front of the mirror, and always get the desired
coverage just right.

Choose Your Shade
Correctly

Trying foundation on the back your hand is one of the
biggest mistakes many women still make. The right way to pick the perfect shade
is to apply it to your jawbone. 

Trying the three shades that look closest to
your skin will help you find the one that blends in perfectly. If you can’t do
that when you’re buying your makeup, go for the next best thing and test the
three shades in the middle of your chest, where your skin tone is much closer
to your face than the back of your hand.

Best Carrie Underwood Hairstyles

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Celebrity Hairstyles
Published On 02 Sep 2013

Carrie Underwood has always polished her hairstyles to perfection. Every Carrie Underwood long hairstyle looks quite cool and charming. The country music singer and songwriter’s short jagged and razored layers are cut up through the sides and back to ever create an attractive hairstyle. This is a splendid and fabulous look for a night out in town.

Carrie Underwood Short Hairstyles

The award-winning singer’s lustrous layered bob looks gorgeous. Distribute a bit of styling mousse onto damp hair. Blow-dry using a big round brush to move two-inch sections forward, rolling the ends in alternating directions. Mist a one-inch thick vertical section with styling spray. Avoid the top and wrap the section around a medium curling iron while directing the curl in alternate directions. Hold for a few seconds to set, release and repeat until all hair is curled. Run your fingers through your hair to break up the curls and coax fullness. Mist with hairspray for the perfect finish.

Are You Wearing the Wrong Bra for Your Body?

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion Accessories
Published On 20 Nov 2014

Your body type is very important for your choice of
underwear, not just clothes. Knowing what bra styles work best for you can help
you achieve the most flattering silhouette. Pay attention to your proportions
and learn how to choose the right bra based on both your general body shape and
the shape of your breasts.

Whether you’re busty or not so much, check out the best bras
for your body type. Once you try on the right styles of bras, you’ll definitely
see the difference and you won’t go back to your old preference.

Bras for the Rectangle
Body Type

When you’ve got a less curvy shape, contoured padding is the
right way to go. Boosting bras are the right option. You should avoid all types
of minimizer bras and be very careful when you’re choosing sports bras.
Balconette style bras with a touch of padding are among the most flattering
options, especially if you want to show some cleavage.

Bras for the Pear
Body Type

For a bottom heavy frame, it’s always a good idea to draw
attention to the bustline, and the easiest way to do that is with a push-up
bra. Padded bras are also very flattering for most pear shaped women. Once you’re
settled on the perfect cup size, don’t ignore the support. If you have narrow
shoulders, go for tapered straps to keep everything in place.

Worst Holiday Foods to Eat on Thanksgiving and Christmas

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 20 Nov 2014

Whether you’re sticking to home cooked meals for the
holidays or attending plenty of parties, paying a little attention to calories
can save you a lot of time and effort in losing the weight you’re gaining at
the end of the year.

Even if you’ve decided to forget about counting calories to
really enjoy yourself over the holidays, it’s wiser to exercise a little
portion control when it comes to the worst holiday foods. With plenty of fats
and sugar, these treats should be on the list of foods you only enjoy
moderately when you’re worried about weight gain.

Stuffing

Whether it’s made with butter or margarine, stuffing can be
a true calorie bomb. On top of the fats that go into it, stuffing also absorbs
saturated fats once it’s places inside your choice of bird. Cooked inside the
bird, stuffing can also be risky when it comes to food poisoning, but even when
cooked separately, it’s still very high in calories.

Pecan Pie

Definitely one of the worst holiday foods, pecan pie does
include some healthy fats from pecan nuts, but it’s filled with sugar and fats,
especially if you go for it à la mode. Depending on the recipe and the ice cream,
a single slice of pecan pie can go over 500 calories and even reach 800. Do
yourself a favor and skip it in favor of pumpkin pie or angel food cake.

Beauty Mistakes to Avoid Before Holiday Parties

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
Published On 20 Nov 2014

Whether you’re just attending a couple of holiday parties,
one for work and one with your family, or have a full calendar, you always want
to look your best. However, that desire for a quick fix might push you to make
some bad decisions.

Trying new spa treatments and making big changes to your
look are the biggest beauty mistakes to avoid before holiday parties. Taking
risks can lead to great results, but if this is the most important social
season in your year, you should think twice before committing to a procedure
that can have unwanted side effects.

Getting the Wrong
Facial

It’s never a good idea to try a drastic new cosmetic
procedure. If you’ve never gotten a chemical peel or went to a spa for
microdermabrasion, this is not the time to try them. Even the wrong facial can
cause a breakout or leave your skin inflamed for a few days. Clay masks are
particularly tricky before a big holiday party, since they can cause problems for
up to a week before showing the final results. Schedule spa treatments at least
two weeks before your party.

Going Too Far with
the Self Tanner

If you want to get the perfect glow before the holiday
season starts, experimenting with self tanner might not be the right way to
achieve it. Avoid using a new self-tanner and opt for products that give you a
more subtle look after daily application. Attempting to get your tan on the
night before is one of the beauty mistakes to avoid before holiday parties.

10 Signs Your Wardrobe Needs an Overhaul

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 20 Nov 2014

Whether you take pride in how organized your closet is or
your bedroom is filled with clothes and accessories, your wardrobe might need a
little tweaking to improve your style and save time when choosing your outfits.

Pay attention to the signs your wardrobe needs an overhaul
and don’t put it off. If you’re dealing with any of this issues, you should
focus on organizing your wardrobe and figuring out what items are a waste of
space and what items are missing.

1. You Can’t Find Things
to Wear Despite a Full Closet

If choosing something to wear takes you a really long time
despite a wardrobe that’s brimming with clothes, you might have a problem. Look
into your buying habits and make sure that you’re actually spending more on the
things that match your lifestyle and less on things you love or things that are
on sale, but that you’ll never wear.

2. You Have More Than 5
Items That Don’t Fit You

One of the clearest signs your wardrobe needs an overhaul is
having too much space in your closet filled with items that don’t fit you anymore.
Your wardrobe should consists almost entirely of clothes that fit you and that
you can actually wear. It’s OK to hang on to a few items for sentimental
reasons or because they’re valuable, but they should not be visible when you
open your closet.

10 Ways to Stop Him from Cheating

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 19 Nov 2014

While some men believe they’re biologically programmed to
cheat and nothing can be done about that, most seem to actually invest their
time and energy in a monogamous relationship. When you’re worried about your
partner cheating, there are quite a few things you can do about it, most of
them without ever letting him know that you’re thinking about that scenario.

Check out the basic ways to stop him from cheating, but don’t
think that any of it will actually stop him when he really wants to.

1. Work on Communication

Keeping channels open to communicate when something is wrong
or when the relationship is entering a new phase is always important. If you’re
growing apart and your sex life is also taking a hit, it’s important to
communicate in order to keep your relationship healthy. Once you’re on the same
page, you can feel if there’s something really wrong that he’s hiding from you.

2. Keep the Physical
Connection

The happiest relationship are those that have a strong
physical connection. That doesn’t just mean you should be compatible in the
bedroom, it actually means that you should have positive physical contact every
single day, including hugs and kisses. That’s definitely one of the ways to
stop him from cheating, by maintaining that important intimate connection.

3. Spend Quality Time
Together

How to Wear Shearling This Season

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 19 Nov 2014

While shearling has never really gone away as a fall staple,
it’s one of the major trends that you should be rocking this season. Even if
you don’t care for the real thing, there are plenty of cozy and stylish faux
version of shearling that can add to your style.

Find out how to wear shearling the right way this fall, and
get the most out of this trend. Whether you prefer it as a detail for a biker
or aviator jacket or as a full look, here’s what you need to know about wearing
shearling to maximum effect.

Stick to One
Shearling Piece

If you love a shearling collar on your coat, stick to that.
If you want a full teddy coat, that also works great with the trend. But the
biggest mistake you can make when it comes to wearing shearling, whether it’s
real sheepskin or a faux version, is letting it make two appearances in your
look. Too much shearling is definitely at the wrong end of the matchy-matchy
spectrum.

Choose the Right Shearling

Before wondering how to wear shearling, it’s important to
make sure that the quality matches the price when you’re buying the real thing.
Quality shearling doesn’t feel dry and it’s completely crack free, while also
being lightweight. However, you can also opt for the intentional glaze effect,
that’s equally striking, as long as it’s intentional.

10 Fashion Myths Debunked

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 19 Nov 2014

Rules like not wearing white after Labor day or avoiding
denim on denim have been eliminated by modern fashion sensibilities, but there
are plenty of other style myths that still have followers.

Forgetting the fashion myths have been debunked isn’t even
bold anymore. Check out a few style restrictions that are no longer relevant,
but still keep many from fulfilling their true fashion potential. From the
outdated print mixing rules to the silly rule of avoiding suede during the
summer, here are the myths that have been thoroughly busted by the fashion
world.

1. You Have to Take Off One
Accessory Before Going Out

Created in the 1960s, this rule was originally based on a
point system for finding balance in every look. 

However, fashion is not math,
and this outdated myth should be absolutely forgotten. From layering necklaces
to wearing multiple bracelets, there are plenty of looks where more is more, so
don’t be discouraged to try some bolder accessory and jewelry combinations.

10 Eyeliner Hacks Every Girl Should Know

Posted In Makeup / Makeup Tips
Published On 19 Nov 2014

When you’re out of eyeliner, there are a couple of quick
hacks you can use to draw a perfect line. Applying mascara with an eyeliner
brush is one way to get a quick eyeliner fix, but only on the eyelid, never on
the waterline. If you’re out of mascara too, then simply use a wet eyeliner
brush and dip it in eyeshadow before applying.

There’s a lot more you can do if you do have a pencil
eyeliner. Try some of the best eyeliner hacks and you’ll be able to create the
perfect look quicker and more precisely.

1.Heat Your Pencil
Eyeliner

A dry or crumbly pencil eyeliner can actually scratch your
skin, making the application less than pleasant, especially on the waterline. Heat
it for a few seconds with your hairdryer in order to get a softer, more
manageable texture. 

If you heat it with a lighter, you’ll get a different
texture, similar to gel eyeliner, but make sure to try it on the back of your
hand first to make sure it’s not too hot for your eyelids and it has the
texture you want.

Pantone Spring 2014 Color Trends Forecast

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 04 Sep 2013

The Pantone Color Institute has released its spring 2014 color trends forecast for men and women and it seems like the warm months of 2014 will be defined by a balanced approach. If the past seasons brought a multitude of intense colors, this year is somewhat more balanced since there are also a few neutrals in the Institute’s top ten shades list.

Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director is the first to notice this interesting change and stated that: “What’s interesting is we’re seeing exciting and fashionable colors as well as more neutral ones. It’s not as though everyone is willing to wear the bright colors from recent seasons head-to-toe. There needs to be equilibrium, and that is a more serious word than balance. The world still needs the stability of soft neutrals but we’re not just talking about gray, beige and taupe,” WWD.com reports.

Spring 2014 Color Trends Forecast By Pantone
Blue tones will steal the spotlight in the spring 2014 season. The most popular color for women for spring 2014 is Dazzling Blue, while for men Placid Blue tops the list of the most popular colors for spring 2014, according to forecasts.

Number two in top 10 women’s Pantone colors spring 2014 is Violet Tulip, a sophisticated pigment which flatters many skin tones. The first six positions of the top are reserved for refined, vibrant tones: Radiant Orchid, Celosia Orange, Freesia and Cayenne. The last four positions are reserved  more versatile tones: Pacid Blue, Paloma, Sand and Hemlock.

Spring 2014 Color Trends Forecast
The tones Placid Blue, Paloma, Dazzling Dlue, Cayenne, Sand, Celosia Orange and Freesia are found in both of the tops. The other tones from the top ten Men’s Pantone colors are magenta purple, comfrey and purple haze.
The news comes right in time for Spring 2014 Fashion Week and we simply can’t wait to see how these color trends will materialize in the new spring 2014 collections from the industry’s most influential leaders. Stay tuned for the hottest collections for spring 2014 from all of the four fashion capitals.

Running in the Winter: Gear and Exercise Tips

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
Published On 18 Nov 2014

Exercising outdoors in late fall and winter comes with a
pretty big set of risks, but if you’re prepared for it, you can still do it and
get a great workout. Whether you’re jogging, hiking or biking outdoors, here
are a few simple ways to get the most out of your exercise without any risks.

Try these simple exercise tips for cold weather and you won’t
have to stick to indoors exercise in a crowded gym or at home, where you keep
getting distracted when you’re working out.

Choose Your Gear
Carefully

In cold weather, gear becomes very important. Layering is a
must, but you should also invest in moisture wicking fabrics that keep you
comfortable and safe when it’s really cold outside. 

Gloves are also important
when temperatures drop below the freezing point, and you should also invest in
special shoes if you’re going to work out in the snow. You should also consider
a scarf for wet and windy days if you don’t want to risk frostbite on your
face. Reflective clothing is also a must if you’re exercising when it’s dark outside.

Keep Your Head
Covered

10 Rules for Finding Love on Tinder

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 18 Nov 2014

With online dating becoming available in app form, there’s a
whole new set of rules you should follow in order to increase your chances.
Whether you’ve never used Tinder or tried it, but didn’t find what you were
looking for, here’s how to use the app to its maximum potential. If you’re
looking for a long term, monogamous relationship, don’t ignore these Tinder dos
and dont’s.

Stick to a few simple rules for finding love on Tinder, and
you’ll be able to increase your chances of finding the right match and meeting
someone you really want to be with.

1. Choose Flattering, Realistic
Photos

Just like for any online dating platform, the pictures you
choose can have the biggest impact for your chances of succes. Avoid selfies
and forget about duckface, whether it’s supposed to be ironic or not. Choose a
few pictures that you look good in, but don’t go too far with Photoshop or use
really old ones. Avoid group shots and make sure that you’re doing something
fun in most of your profile pics.

2. Don’t Swipe Right Just
to Be Nice

One of the most important rules for finding love on Tinder
is using the app the way it’s meant to be used, by only swiping right for guys
you’re actually interested in. If you swipe right too much, you might fill your
inbox with matches that aren’t really right for you. You’ll also be wasting
other people’s time in a way that you probably wouldn’t appreciate yourself,
right?

3. Fill Your Profile the
Right Way

BMI, here are the ways to tell that you could benefit from getting rid of a
little weight.

You’re Hungry Even
After Huge Portions

Being hungry all the time can be caused by a poor diet, with
not enough fiber, protein, healthy fat, vitamins and minerals. However, when
you know you’re getting all the nutrients you need, constant hunger can be a
sign of insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. You might be prediabetic or
could actually have undiagnosed type 2 diabetes.

Your Waist Size Is
Putting Your Health at Risk

Even if you choose to ignore your BMI, your waist can be a
good indicator that you should lose some weight. For women, a waist
circumference larger than 35 inches is one of the signs you should lose weight.
If you don’t, you’re exposed to a higher risk of developing heart disease.
Excessive belly fat can also increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Skin Care Mistakes to Avoid for Oily Skin

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 18 Nov 2014

Whether you’re dealing with acne and clogged pores or not,
maintaining oily skin can be tricky. You don’t want visible shine, but you also
don’t want to dry your skin too much, which ends up backfiring and producing
more sebum.

Learn more about the biggest skin care mistakes to avoid for
oily skin, and you’ll be able to avoid them completely and keep your complexion
beautiful and radiant, without any excess sebum.

Skipping Moisturizer

You can’t avoid a good moisturizer, no matter how hard you
try. Once you clean your skip by stripping it of its natural oils, it can
quickly dry out, which means that the oil glands in your skin will work
overtime to compensate. Water-based, non-comedogenic moisturizers are your best
choice, and products that contain glycerin are particularly effective for oily
skin.

Using a Drying
Cleanser

Even with the proper amount of moisturizer, your skin can
still get too dry because of ingredients in your facial cleanser. Using cleansers
with sulfates is definitely one of the biggest skin care mistakes to avoid for
oily skin. They’re dangerous chemicals that will have a harsh drying effect
effect. Instead, opt for sulfate-free cleansers, that use ingredients like sodium
lauryl oat amino acids.

or Too Often

and more these days is “Are fast food salads good for you?”. The

Best Pedicure Hacks Everyone Should Know

Posted In Nails / Pedicure
Published On 18 Nov 2014

A good pedicure has 6 simple steps: soak, scrub, trim, file,
moisturize, and polish. When you’re doing it yourself, you can spend a lot of
time trying to get everything right. That’s where the right pedicure hacks can
help you out, either to save time or to fix problems that seem unsolvable.

Try the best pedicure hacks and improve the look and feel of
your toenails. From fixing a broken toenail to making sure that you’re removing
all the dead skin cells, check out these simple life hacks that could make your
pedicure a lot easier.

Fix a Broken Nail
with a Tea Bag

Dealing with a broken toenail is never pleasant,
particularly if you plan on wearing open toe shoes. The best way to fix the
problem is using a little paper from an unused teabag. Place it over the broken
part of the nail, then add another layer of polish. This quick fix will keep
your broken toenail in place until it grows enough that you can fix the damage
easily.

Use Vaseline to
Prevent Staining Your Cuticles

Since toenails are a lot smaller than your nails, the risk
of making a mistake when you’re applying polish is even bigger. Try one of the best
pedicure hacks and secure your cuticles with a little Vaseline. Any area that’s
coated in it will not allow polish to stick, so make sure that it doesn’t get
on your toenails before you start painting them.

When It’s OK to Skip a Workout

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
Published On 13 Nov 2014

Whether you’re working out to lose weight or to tone your
muscles, a regular exercise schedule can help you stay on track. That doesn’t
mean that skipping one workout will put an end to all your efforts, especially
when there are extenuating circumstances.

Take a look at the main reasons to skip a workout, and
decide for yourself when it’s better to stick to your exercise routine even if
you don’t feel like it and when it’s better to just take a break.

You’re Sick

Many claim that exercising when you have a cold is good for
the immune system, but that’s not always the case. If your only symptoms are
fatigue and a runny nose, you’re good to go. However, when you’re dealing with
a fever, it’s important to let your body focus its resources on healing without
adding stress. Stick to moderate exercises for a cold, but say no to workouts
when you’re feverish or have flu symptoms.

You’re Not Sleeping
Enough

Exercise taking up time that would be better spent sleeping
is definitely one of the reasons to skip a workout. You can probably power
through your exercise routine after a single night without enough rest, but if
you’re having trouble sleeping for more than a single night, take a nap instead
of hitting the gym.

8 Signs You Are in The Friend Zone

Posted In Love and Relationships / Flirting and Dating
Published On 14 Sep 2013

OK, so you fancy him, but how can you tell if your friendship is ever going to blossom into something more? Learn to read the signs you’re stuck in the friend zone with a guy.

1. He calls you “dude”.
One of the most surefire signs you are in the friend zone is the way he calls you. If he refers to you in the same way he refers to his male friends and treats you like one of his mates, you should probably abandon any romantic fantasies.

2. He talks to you about other girls
While confiding in each other might be a good sign, if he openly talks about other girls or asks for your advice in matters of the heart, you can take it as a sign you have been friend zoned. He would definitely not bring up his lady friends, if he had deeper feelings for you.

3. He treats you like his kid sister
Looking for signs you are in the friend zone? If he acts protectively towards you, calling you “kid” and showing a general concern for your well-being, don’t read too much into it. Chances are he sees you more like a kid sister than like a potential girlfriend.

child or children, here’s what you can expect from a relationship with a single
parent.

Understand the
Situation

Before you get excited, it’s important to be realistic about
it. A single dad won’t have a lot of time for a relationship and his finances
will also be prioritized more towards his children than towards extravagant
dates or trips. Decide if you’re open emotionally to a complicated situation
before you meet the kids, so you don’t end up hurting anyone.

Be Prepared to Be No.
2

Whether it’s time or money, a big part of learning to deal
with dating a single father is accepting the fact that you’ll always be his
second priority. You shouldn’t be resentful about the fact that you can’t be
his top priority and you shouldn’t try to portray yourself as a victim because
of it. If you can’t deal with the situation, you shouldn’t be dating a single
parent.

Don’t Get Jealous
About His Ex

10 Signs You Need to Change Your Hairdresser

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 04 Nov 2014

The most obvious reason to change your hair stylist has to
do with their expertise. If they specialize in long hair and you’ve decided to
get a pixie cut, there should be no hard feelings when you part ways. However,
things are more complicated than that most of the time.

Learn how to spot the signs you need to change your
hairdresser and you might improve the state of your hair with a simple change. Loyalty
is important, but sometimes other things come first, and that’s when you need a
new hair stylist.

1. You’re Facing Big
Communication Problems

Dealing with communication issues can get difficult, and
sometimes the easiest way to solve the problem is to change your hair stylist.
When your hairdresser doesn’t take the time to listen to what you have to say
or they seem to get it but the end result shows that they didn’t, you might be
happier finding someone with better communication skills.

2. You Feel Rushed

You shouldn’t surprise your hair stylist with a request for
a new color when you just go in for a trim. However, when they know in advance
what you need and they hurry just to make the next appointment, that’s one of
the signs you need to change your hairdresser. Some hair stylists work better
under pressure, but when you feel rushed and don’t get the result you want,
there’s a problem.

3. Your Example Photo Is
Ignored

10 Ways to Ruin Your Self Tanning

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Self Tanning
Published On 04 Nov 2014

When you’ve decided to use self tanner to get the perfect
sun kissed glow, knowing how to apply it correctly is very important. But even
if you’ve done it before successfully, you might run into trouble, so it’s
important to know how to avoid and fix any problems.

Learn more about the biggest self tanning mistakes and find
the perfect solutions to keep them from ruining your gorgeous tan. From
preparing your skin carefully to getting a uniform look, here’s what you need to
know.

1. Trying Self Tanner
Before a Big Event

Stick to the brands that worked for you in the past if
you’re planning or using it right before a big event. Otherwise, if you’re just
starting out with self tanner, you better start using it in advance in order to
get the desired effect. Exfoliate well 24 hours before using self tanning
products and avoid the same-day application so you’ll have time to correct any
mistakes, especially if you’re planning on wearing white.

2. Ignoring the
Face/Body Recommendation

Avoid one of the biggest self tanning mistakes by sticking
to facial products for your face and body products for everywhere else. Mixing
them up might end up as a crucial error. Also, it’s better if you use face and
body self tanning products from the same brand, so you know that you’ll get an
even finish. Using two different brands can create different tones for your
face and body.

How to Kick Your Soda Habit for Good

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 04 Nov 2014

When you’re drinking more soda than water every day, you may
have a problem. If you’ve decided to scale back or quit soda altogether, you’ll
have to face some serious withdrawal symptoms, related to both caffeine and
sugar, if you’re not into diet soda.

Find out how to quit soda with the least amount of
discomfort and replace it with better habits. Whether you’re drawn to it for
the caffeine, sugar or fizz, here’s how you can kick the habit for good.

Figure Out Why You’re
Addicted to It

The most important step in giving up soda is figuring out
what’s drawing you to it. Both sugar and caffeine are mildly addictive, but
drinking too much soda can also be a social habit. If you drink it throughout
the whole day, then it’s probably more about the stimulants, or if you usually
go for soda in the afternoon you need the energy boost or the reward in the
middle of a stressful day.

Accept the Long Term
Effects of Soda

One of the major steps you need to take when you’re
wondering how to quit soda is to accept that it’s bad for you when you don’t
drink it in moderation. Even diet sodas that are completely sugar free can
contribute to weight gain, and the acidity in most sodas can have a very
harmful effect on the enamel of your teeth in the long run.

NYFW Spring 2014: Sportswear Inspired Collections

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 11 Sep 2013

Athletic influences are an important part of New York Fashion Week spring 2014. The concept was intensely explored by many brands with interesting and sometimes completely unexpected results. If for some designers, sportswear influences weren’t exactly new, for some brands such accents were among the least predictable sources of inspiration. At times, athletic influences went hand in hand with beach style essentials. At other times, athletic influences were combined with elegant accents. Here are some of the most interesting sports-inspired collections we’ve spotted:

NYFW Spring 2014: Lacoste Collection

Lacoste Spring 2014

The Lacoste spring 2014 collection is undoubtedly the least surprising addition to the list of sports-inspired lines. This time the designer took his inspiration from the 1930 in an attempt to “take the classic fabrics that are familiar to Lacoste in this very light and technical direction”. The line was defined by simple silhouettes, tennis-inspired skirts, oversized jackets and minimalist dresses in subdued tones.

10 Signs Your Hair Is Damaged

Posted In Hairstyles and Haircuts / Professional Hair Tips
Published On 28 Oct 2014

There are many ways in which you can inflict damage on your
hair, from styling it with heat to chemical processing, but the effects of your
mistakes take time to really show themselves.

Once you get used to seeing the signs your hair is damaged
early on, you can do something about quickly to prevent further problems. Find
out how to test your hair and see just how it’s doing before spending money on expensive
treatments that promise to fix the problem.

1. You’re Noticing Split
Ends After a Haircut

Split ends are a clear sign of damaged hair, but what you
should be looking out for is the time it takes for them to appear after a trim.
Once you get it cut, your hair should be free of split ends for at least a
month, and up to two for many women. Even if you’re trying to grow it out, it’s
important that you pay attention to split ends and get a trim every few months.

2. It’s Getting Dry and Frizzy

When the weather wreaks more havoc on your hair than ever before,
and you start noticing that your hair is increasingly frizzy, that’s one of the
most obvious signs your hair is damaged. Dry hair is always more prone to
getting frizzy, so if you’re sticking to the same hair care regimen but your
hair is reacting differently, there might be a problem.

Middle

Published On 28 Oct 2014

The Unwritten Rules of Relationships

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 28 Oct 2014

Being yourself is extremely important for a successful
relationship, but sometimes it might be better to hold back a bit if that means
going against the unwritten rules of relationships.

Check out the unspoken rules that you should always try to
follow in your relationship, if you want to turn it into a happy lifelong
commitment. While not every rule is a dealbreaker, many of them can help you
preserve the foundation of your relationship and keep you both happy.

Choose Your Battles
Carefully

Being open to compromise is a must, but not every little
detail has to be analyzed. If your guy isn’t the most organized man in the
world, you shouldn’t turn yourself into a nag, and expect him to get everything
right all the time. Choosing your battles for things that are really important versus
things you can live with is a big deal. Inject too much negativity through
constant conflict and you’re risking your relationship.

Don’t Try to Turn Him
Against His Family

Accepting his family and friends is definitely one of the
most important unwritten rules of relationships. As long as they’re not
actually harmful to him or trying to sabotage your relationship, trying to get
them out of his life won’t end well. Even if he’s venting about them to you,
show empathy without piling on.

There are many reasons why your progress can stall when you’re

However, if you’ve been working hard to replace fat with muscle and lose
unwanted weight, there’s still hope.

Find out how to lose the last 10 pounds and increase your
chances of reaching your ideal weight. From staying on top of your diet and

to keep losing weight without adapting your calorie intake to your new weight.
Make sure that you’re getting the numbers right and keep a food journal. You
might have become more lax with your diet as time went on, so reevaluate your
goals the way you’re trying to reach them.

Focus on Weight

to lose the last 10 pounds, since you need to burn more calories than you’re

10 Steps to a More Organized Wardrobe

Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
Published On 27 Oct 2014

When you’re letting your wardrobe fall victim to clutter,
your style always suffers. Keeping everything organized can be difficult, but
with a little effort and a few smart tips, you’ll be able to make the most out
of your closet.

Find out how to organize your wardrobe the right way in
order to make the most out of your space and increase the chances of creating
the best looks from your clothes. If you can’t see them, you won’t wear them,
so here’s how you should keep your closet organized.

1. Unclutter Once per
Season

Letting go of clothing might be difficult, as you may be
sentimentally attached to some, but when they’re lying at the back of the
closet and you haven’t touched them in more than two years, it’s time to move
on. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should donate or throw out valuable
pieces, just the items that don’t fit you anymore and that you stopped wearing
for good.

Dermaplaning Pros and Cons

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Perfect Skin
Published On 27 Oct 2014

While the idea of a dermatologist running a sharp blade over
your face might be off putting when you first consider it, dermaplaning has
quite a few advantages. The cosmetic procedure is gaining traction, even though
it hasn’t hit the mainstream yet.

Before considering it, get familiar with the dermaplaning pros
and cons so you can make an informed decision before scheduling the procedure.
From its exfoliation benefits to a few downsides and risks, here’s what you
need to know about dermaplaning, how it works and what you should expect from
it.

Dermaplaning Pros

Making your skin look smoother and helping it absorb
cosmetics much faster are among the biggest draws of this procedure.
Dermaplaning also removes vellus hairs, or peach fuzz, the fine facial hairs
that are usually unnoticeable.

Provides Great Exfoliatiation

One of the most important dermaplaning pros is the fact that
it can help exfoliate your skin in a unique way, that makes both cosmetic
procedures and product application much more efficient. Gently running the blade
over your skin removes dead skin cells very effectively, and this great
exfoliation is also recommended for with broken capillaries.

It Can Increase the
Efficiency of a Chemical Peel

Making your own deodorant guarantees that you’ll be keeping
fresh without any harmful chemicals, that could penetrate your skin, especially
if you use it right after shaving or waxing.

Find out how to make your own deodorant from natural
ingredients, whether you’d prefer a solid stick or a liquid spray. Try these

to homemade deodorant. You’ll also need coconut oil, shea butter and essential
oils if you’d like a particular scent. Try these simple recipes for a homemade
deodorant that really works. You can make deodorant bars by placing the
mixtures into muffin tins or use an empty plastic deodorant stick for
convenience. Feel free to halve or double the recipes if you’d rather make more
or less on your first try.

Soda Deodorant Stick

When you’ve decided to keep your armpits fresh, baking soda
is the right choice. If you’d like to go for the easiest option, all you need

Signs He’s Going to Be Abusive

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 26 Oct 2014

Trusting your instinct at the beginning of a relationship is
very important, but there are also plenty of signs that can help you realize
something is wrong. Recognizing the signs he’s going to be abusive is very
important so you can avoid a traumatic experience.

While all of these red flags can point to many other
relationship issues, when you’re seeing a few of them in the same guy, there’s
an increased risk that he’ll be abusive. Cut your losses and end a relationship
when your guy is showing most of the signs.

He’s Jealous

A little jealousy is a healthy part of most relationships,
but when he’s showing more than the usual, it might be a red flag. When
jealousy and possessiveness get out of hand, emotional, verbal and even
physical abuse aren’t fat off. The reason for this also has to do with his
insecurities, but jealousy in the first stages of a relationship is never a
good sign.

He Gets Controlling

Controlling behaviour is one of the biggest signs he’s going
to be abusive. It’s usually justified by claiming that it’s for the victim’s
own good, but it can get dangerous quickly. For some men who show controlling
impulse, the result is emotional abuse, but refusing to subject yourself to it
can also lead to physical violence.

When It’s OK to Lie in a Relationship

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 25 Oct 2014

While conventional wisdom says that lying in a relationship
is never acceptable, the truth is that some small lies can actually contribute
to a healthy relationship. Brutal honesty can feel like rejection a lot of
times, but the trick is knowing when it’s the right time to tell a white lie
and when it’s time to be truthful.

There are plenty of reasons to lie to your significant
other, from avoiding conflict to sparing your partner a lot of hurt, but the
key to keeping things balanced is knowing when it’s OK to lie in a relationship.
Find out which small lies aren’t that bad.

Little White Lies vs.
Deceit

Before you learn more about acceptable lies, it’s important
to draw the line between a few kind lies and outright deceit. If you let lying
take over your interactions with your partner, things will end badly. Fibbing
is only acceptable when honesty takes second place to being loyal,
compassionate or morally supportive. Avoid being deceitful in a way that’s
clearly a betrayal of trust.

When You’ve Got a
Crush

It would be nice if love was a constant an overflowing feeling,
but even when you’re very much in love, you can still find other people very
attractive. Having a crush is one of the best examples of when it’s OK to lie in a relationship. Your boyfriend or husband doesn’t need to hear about your
new hot co-worker. The crush will pass, and your relationship will be stronger because
you didn’t go for total honesty and made your guy jealous over nothing.

Ornish Diet Pros and Cons

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 24 Oct 2014

Created by Dr. Dean Ornish as both a weight loss tool and a
way to prevent or reverse chronic disease, the Ornish diet has multiple
benefits, along with a few downsides. Outlined in the book “The Spectrum: A
Scientifically Proven Program to Feel Better, Live Longer, Lose Weight, and
Gain Health”, Ornish’s vision on a healthy lifestyle might not be for everyone.

Find out more about the Ornish diet pros and cons before
deciding if this weight loss plan is the right solution for your needs.

Ornish Diet Pros

The foundation of Dr. Dean Ornish’s diet plan is “The
Spectrum”, which separates foods into 5 categories, from group 1, the
healthiest, to group 5, the least healthy. The Ornish diet is versatile,
allowing you to make the choice of how much you’re willing to eat from group 1
and how rare you go to group 5.

You Control Your Own
Plan

The Spectrum gives dieters a lot of leeway, depending on
their goals: from losing weight to preventing or reversing heart disease,
diabetes and even cancer. That could be one of the big Ornish diet pros, but it
also means that you’re in charge of your progress. The better choices you make,
the more likely you are to lose weight and keep it off, both in the short term
and in the long run.

It’s Heart Healthy

Celebrities Who Hate Working Out

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 23 Oct 2014

Working out is a pleasure for many, but a horrible chore for
plenty, and celebrities are no different. While some enjoy working out in a
variety of ways, others find ways to avoid the gym or simply suck it up when
they really have to.

Check out some of the biggest celebrities who hate working
out, yet still manage to stay in shape by being active outside the gym. From
Jennifer Lawrence and Blake Lively to Emma Stone and Keira Knightley, find out what
a few A-listers think about working out and discover their alternative celebrity fitness tips.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence Hates Working Out

Even though she’s one of the celebrities who hate the gym,
Jennifer Lawrence likes to stay in shape, and working out is a necessity since
she’s not into dieting. “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch
people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie,” she
told Glamour magazine.

Blake Lively

Blake Lively Hates Working Out

The fact that she’s one of the celebrities who hate working
out might change after Blake Lively gives birth and she wants to get back in
shape quickly. But for now, she enjoys dark chocolate every day without any
indoor exercise. “I hate the gym, so what I do instead is find other ways to be
active… I ride bicycles, I hike, I go out and exercise in nature and I’m
active that way,” she told ExtraTV.

How to Help Him Overcome His Fear of Commitment

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 23 Oct 2014

There are many reasons why guys develop a fear of commitment
and not all of them can be overcome. If you think your guy is worth the effort,
there are a few things you can do to help him solve his issue.

Find out how to help him overcome his fear of commitment,
but don’t start with high expectations. Even if he’s aware of the problem, not
every guy can get over it, or at least not in your timeframe. Start by
listening to his feelings and don’t make the mistake of thinking your love can
change him. It might, but his fear of commitment might never go away.

Don’t Take It
Personally

Believe it or not, it takes more than “the right woman” to
help a man move on from his commitment issues. Taking it personally is the
wrong approach, as it will only lead to bad things for your self esteem and it
won’t help him in any way. If your man confesses that he has a fear of
commitment, taking it slowly is the right way to go.

Give Him Space

Attacking his freedom is also the wrong answer to the
question of how to help him overcome his fear of commitment. If you really
think there’s a chance for the two of you, give him space while he figures out
how much he wants to be with you. When you make him miss you, he’s more likely
to let go of his relationship hang ups.

Root of the Problem

10 Steps to Escape the Friend Zone (as a Girl)

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 22 Oct 2014

When the guy you like sees you as a friend and not a romantic
prospect, you should act fast. Staying in the friend role for too long
decreases your chances of getting the relationship you want. However, there are
quite a few things you can do to turn it around.

Find out how to escape the friend zone and get him to take
you seriously as a possible girlfriend. With the right tips, you’re increasing
your chances of making it, but you shouldn’t rush to confess your feelings
right away. Instead try these steps before you tell him how you really feel.

1. Accept You’re in It

If you’re still in denial about being in the friend zone,
you won’t get to do much about it before it’s too late. When it’s clear that he’s
not taking his time to ask you… because the thought hasn’t even crossed his
mind, accept the situation you’re in and start making the right changes.

2. Step Back

Spending too much time with him in the hopes that he’ll
finally see you in the right light and decide to ask you out is a bad idea.
Instead, you need to take a step back emotionally and don’t be available as a
friend or confident who’s ready to hear about his crushes. If you really want
to escape the friend zone, don’t be needy and take a break from the friendship.

3. Give Him Some Space

How to Make Him Understand Your Feelings

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 22 Oct 2014

Good communication is fundamental for any relationship, so when
your boyfriend doesn’t understand your feelings, there’s a big problem. Find
out how to get through to him and help him relate to how you feel to bring your
relationship to the next level.

When you’re struggling with communication issues, here’s how
to make him understand your feelings. These simple tips can improve the way you
relate to each other, which can only mean good things for your relationship.

Find the Right Time
to Talk

When you have something on your chest, you shouldn’t try
what could be a long discussion at the wrong time. Don’t attempt to start
discussing your feeling when he’s busy, stressed out or tired. You should both
be in a good mood for the talk. If you don’t choose the right time, he might go
into defensive mode, thinking that any discussion about your feelings will end
with accusations.

Get Specific

One of the best answers to the question of how to make him
understand your feelings is to use specific examples. Generic statements like “You
don’t understand me” or “You never care about how I feel” can start an
argument, but they won’t lead to progress in communication. Focus on specific
situations where you felt misunderstood and explain them with a smile.

10 Lazy Ways to Stay Thin

Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
Published On 22 Oct 2014

Staying skinny has a lot to do with genes, but it’s also
influenced by the way you eat. If you’re looking for a lazy approach to keeping
your weight stable, the right habits can make all the difference. Try the lazy
girl’s guide to staying at your ideal weight.

Check out the most effective lazy ways to stay thin and
enjoy your figure without having to diet regularly or work out every other day.
These simple tips can be the perfect way for the lazy girl to keep her figure
without giving up too much when it comes to enjoying food.

1. Reorganize Your Meals

If you want to keep your metabolism in the right gear, you
have to give up the traditional 3 meals with the occasional snack. Split your
food into 4-6 daily meals and spread them out to every 2-3 hours. 

By eating
less at a time you can also improve your digestion and you’re unlikely to go
hungry and end up overindulging in fattening foods.

2. Stop Fighting Stress

A Look Back at Oscar de la Renta’s Best Dresses

Posted In Entertainment / Celeb News
Published On 21 Oct 2014

Oscar Arístides de la Renta Fiallo (1932-2014) has left a
big mark on the fashion world and created gorgeous couture gowns for six
decades. After finding international fame in the 1960s, the award-winning
designer created collections for Arden, Balmain and Lanvin, while also developing
his eponymous label.

Oscar de la Renta was inducted into the Coty Hall of Fame, served as the President of the Council of Fashion Designers of America
twice, in the ‘70s and in the ’80s, and was honored with the CFDA Lifetime
Achievement Award. However, the most important part of his legacy is his vision
of fashion.

“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A
runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well
dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good
balance and good common sense,” the designer once said, quoted by the New York
Times.

Discover a few of Oscar de la Renta’s best dresses that
perfectly capture his unique sensibilities of color and shape, that made him a
hit with everyone from Oprah and Taylor Swift to Jacqueline Kennedy and Hillary
Clinton.

BCBG Max Azria Spring 2014 Collection

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 06 Sep 2013

The BCGB Max Azria spring 2014 collection marks a special moment in the history of the label. Next year, the brand will celebrate its 25th anniversary, so the designers consulted the archives to see which of the pieces are still relevant today and got inspired to create fashion items that beautifully reflect the brand’s aesthetic DNA. The new line was carefully analyzed from the front row by socialites Heidi Klum, Estelle, Selita Ebanks and Olivia Palermo.

BCGB Max Azria’s spring 2014 collection brought relaxed silhouettes, many utilitarian pieces with a masculine flair and occasional bohemian influences. Still, regardless of the influences behind a particular outfit, the style perspective was clear: easy to wear and effortlessly chic designs were the label’s focus. There were a lot of boxy shapes, especially in the first half of the collection and it seemed that the focus was placed on versatility from a chromatic standpoint, with only a few animal prints to bring a subtle contrast.

As the show progressed however, things took a feminine turn. The declared intention for the new BCBG Max Azria SS 2014 line was “to make women feel pretty”, so the line included plenty of lightweight fabrics such as chiffon and silk and plenty of gorgeous watercolor floral prints. There were certain sexy accents such as deep V necklines or strategic sheer accents, but overall, the focus was on an elegant, ladylike allure instead of overly bold, sexy accents that could easily prove out of many women’s comfort zone.

Published On 06 Oct 2014

Refined carbs are at the top of the list when it comes to
the worst foods for your metabolism, but they’re not the only culprits that can
be responsible for weight gain or troubles with losing a few pounds.

Foods rich in sugar are just as bad, so when you’re worried
about weight loss, they might need to be reigned in. Discover a few of the
foods that can slow down your metabolism and cause weight gain, along with
other health issues, including an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.

Fatty Fried Foods

Saturated fat is the enemy when it comes to your metabolism.
They can both slow down your digestion and raise your cholesterol levels, which
cause a decrease in your metabolic rate. 

Fried foods have the highest content
of saturated fats, and when your metabolism slows down, they’ll be deposited in
fatty tissue, so don’t indulge of fried and fatty foods too much.

Published On 06 Sep 2013

The new Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s collection will only hit the stores later this month. The French designer promised that it would bring the eclectic spirit of Paris in its new feminine creations when the news was first announced. A quick glimpse at the new limited edition collection proves that she not only delivered on her promise, she actually exceeded expectations if you ask us, as these pieces radiate Parisian chicness.

Speaking about the new line, Don Brennan, Kohl’s chief merchandising officer, stated that the new line revolves around affordable pieces with a timeless allure:

Catherine Malandrino For Kohl's Collection

“Our DesigNation collection from Catherine Malandrino blends Catherine’s feminine style and recognizable silhouette into wearable, timeless designs that allow women to express their personality at an exceptional value. We are confident the line will appeal to our customers and continue to position Kohl’s as the premier style destination they have come to expect.”

Catherine Malandrino’s Kohl’s collection features chic tees with the slogans such as “Paris, je t’aime” or “Paris mon amour”, a myriad of chic monochrome short dresses and pleated skirts, edgy motorcycle jackets and several pleather tops and skirts with intricate abstract patterns for a trendy flair. However, the piece de resistance of the new line is definitely a Parisian variation on the LBD which features the Eiffel Tower symbol in the back.

Erin Fetherston Spring 2014 Collection

Posted In Fashion and Style / Fashion News
Published On 06 Sep 2013

The Erin Fetherston spring 2014 collection was recently revealed at the label’s Tribeca studio in New York. Inspired by her wedding, which took place in Barbados earlier this summer, the designer created a variety of romantic yet flirty dresses for the “ultimate garden party”. The happy event and the exotic location seem to have brought her a renewed sense of optimism and playfulness which were reflected in her exquisite creations, especially if we consider the dominant color palette of the new line.

Bright lime, coral and hot pink were the colors of choice for the some new line’s most interesting creations, however gowns in tones of white, navy or light blue brought an additional refined touch to the new collection. The designer opted for classic silhouettes and lightweight fabrics like organza and lace for an elegant allure but brought a youthful vibe through interesting textural details, particularly with ruffles, which proved to be Fetherston’s favorite motif for spring 2014. If her short dresses are mostly directed to a younger crowd, her floor sweeping gowns are timeless enough to work for more than one age group.

The designer seems determined to explore her biggest strengths, focusing on what she knows best: creating elegant gowns that never fail to steal the spotlight. The brand’s growing popularity seems to indicate that she has finally uncovered the style desires of her most loyal customers.

Physical Compatibility in Relationships – Should You Stay Together Without It?

Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
Published On 05 Oct 2014

Without physical compatibility in your relationship, you
risk other types of problems popping up, from frustration to emotional
detachment. However, while sexual compatibility is sometimes instant, it can
also take some work.

Be prepared to put some effort into your relationship when
everything seems to be going well except physical compatibility. Throwing in
the towel too early can be a mistake if you don’t try to solve the issue.

Make Working on
Physical Compatibility a Priority

While every romantic comedy peddles the idea of instant
connection, that’s both emotional and physical, things aren’t always that
idealized in real life. If you feel like you’re lacking the spark when it comes
to physical compatibility, there are quite a few options to try before giving
up. Improving communication can help, but keeping an open mind is always
important.

Don’t Underestimate
the Long Term Effects of Incompatibility

The lack of physical compatibility in your relationship
might be something you can live with right now, but things usually get worse.
Without the physical connection, emotional troubles and frustrations start showing
up, and many can be traced back to that root problem. If you love your partner
and want to give the relationship a chance, here’s what you can do to solve the
issue.

Rave Makeup Ideas

Published On 05 Oct 2014

When you’re getting ready for a rave, waterproof makeup is a
must, but black light makeup isn’t the only cool idea you should try. Check out
a few rave makeup ideas that are based on current runway trends and will end up
creating a gorgeous look.

By being both bold and trendy, you’ll be able to get the right look for
any rave. Try these excellent ideas that can take your rave makeup to a whole
new level.

Go for Electric Blue
Eyelids

Vibrant colors have been a runway staple at Fashion Week,
but none have been as daring as electric and cobalt blues. Whether you decide
to go for a smoky eye effect with three vibrant shades of blue or keep it
simple and graphic, you can’t go wrong with a bold blue at a rave. Black light
blues are another good option, but don’t overdo them in the eye area. Instead,
stick to the top eyelid to avoid a raccoon look.

10 of the Best Spa Treatments for Blackheads

Posted In Body and Skin Care / Bath and Spa
Published On 05 Oct 2014

There are plenty of at home treatments for blackheads, but
few are as effective as a spa treatment performed by professionals. If you want
to improve your complexion by getting rid of them, check out some of the best spa
treatments for blackheads.

From clay masks and special facials to microdermabrasion and chemical peels, discover the most effective treatments for blackheads that you can get at a spa. While most are available as kits for at home use, you’ll
usually get a more powerful effect with the help of a licensed cosmetologist.

Face Steaming

While steam doesn’t automatically open pores for every type
of complexion, it definitely increases the ease of blackhead extraction for
many. 

You can try steaming at home, but you’ll be a lot more relaxed at a spa,
where it’s just a small part of the overall treatment. Skip the face steaming
if you suffer from rosacea or any type of fungal infection.

10 Ways to Tell Love from Lust

Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
Published On 04 Oct 2014

Sorting through your feelings can be difficult at the
beginning of a relationship, but making the right long term decision can depend
on your ability to process those feelings.

Find out how to tell love from lust before making any big
steps forward in your relationship. Avoid any decision that you could end up
regretting by making the important distinction between great chemistry, that
involves purely physical attraction, and love, which means a lot more. Here are
a few questions to ask yourself in order to find your answer.

1. Do You Really Want to
Get to Know Him?

One simple way to differentiate between actual love and an
infatuation based on lust is to figure out if you really consider your man a
real person, or he’s still your ideal projection of what you’d like him to be.
When lust is involved, you don’t want to get to know him too well, since deep
down you know that what you might find could be a deal breaker.

2. How Much Time Do You
Spend Outside the Bedroom?

When you’re wondering how to tell love from lust, analyze
your relationship objectively and figure out if the reasons you’re really into
him have more to do with sex than anything else. Being very into him is a
normal part of any relationship, but when weeks or months pass and the bulk of
your time together is spent without any clothes, it’s probably not love.

3. Are You Also Friends?
