6 Ways to Support Another Woman

6 Ways to Support Another Woman

by: Yolanda Shoshana

Every Thursday, I have been glued to the hit television show, ‘The Apprentice”. It is drama at it’s finest, except there is something that is painful for me to watch as a woman. When the show began the women dominated and worked together as a team. As time progressed the women slowly but quickly began to rip each other apart and then… there were none, leaving two men standing for the high profile position to work for Donald Trump. The “catfights” between the women have continued and are clearly evident as they make media rounds. Meanwhile, Kwame and Troy had a small show down only to be followed with words of loyalty and strong hugs and handshakes. When will women learn to stick together through the good, bad, and the ugly?

Folic Acid – An Overview

Folic Acid – An Overview

by: Whitney Lasseter

Folic Acid, also know as Vitamin B9, assists in preventing certain birth defects of the spinal cord and brain known as neural tube defects (NTDs). Without a sufficient amount of Folic Acid the cells that form the baby’s brain and spine become deficient resulting in spina bifida (open spine) or anencephaly (undeveloped brain). There are over 4,000 births defects annually as a direct result of insufficient Folic Acid in the Mother’s body. Folic Acid should be taken prior to conception since these births defects begin in the first month of pregnancy. Folic Acid also helps prevent other birth defects such as cleft palate, low birth weight and helps in the production of additional red blood cells needed to support the growth of the fetus...

Jeans That Fit: How to Find Them

Jeans That Fit: How to Find Them

by: Sheila Dicks

We all own jeans and they truly are the main ingredient of any casual wardrobe. However, they are not all equal or equally flattering. We are not all born with the same shape, so, the style we wear will impact the way we look. Have you ever seen an outfit on one of your friends that looked spectacular but when someone else wore that same outfit it lost its pizzazz? That has to do with the body shapes of the two people and
sometimes the color of the garment. Both women could be the same height and weight but have a totally different shape. The same holds true for jeans. Here are a few hints when trying to find jeans that will fit and look great on YOU.
Small flat behind:
If you have a small flat behind and your jeans tend to make you look s...

Making the Faith/Hope Connection

Making the Faith/Hope Connection

by: Cory L. Kemp

You have hope in your life, expectations, desires, a feeling of confidence in what you intend for your life. You know where you want your hope to lead you. But what is the path that you will need to create to continue your journey? What is the connection from hope to faith, and faithful living?
Going back to Hebrews 11 we discover some clues. After gathering the evidence of Abel, Abraham and Sarah’s faith, we are reminded that they died before the promises made to them were actually manifested, “But having seen it and greeted it from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth,” they did understand and name their legacy to us. “For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland...

Digital technology now makes Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging available to all. There now is a completely safe test that can aid in diagnosis, treatment and monitoring with absolutely no risk or radiation exposure.
DITI, or digital infrared thermal imaging, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that allows a health practitioner to see and measure changes in skin surface temperature.

Facial Exercises – a New Trend In Non-Surgical Facial Toning

by: Zhana Dragicevich

There is a moment in everyone’s life, when you notice for the first time, (it may be for some around your 35th birthday), wrinkles and sagginess on your face. These may appear as a result of stress-filled days, good and bad personal experiences, genetics and a host of other factors influencing your life.
At first, looking from different angles in the mirror you think, perhaps you can do something about it. Well, anti-aging creams definitely improve the texture of the skin through quality moisturizing and fight against damaging UV rays together with regular beautician visits...

Flirting For A Long-Term Relationship

Flirting For A Long-Term Relationship

by: Sharon Jacobsen

Have you ever wondered why we flirt? I mean, we’ve all done it at some time but it’s one of those things that we do without really giving any though to why or how.
Quite simply, flirting’s our way of letting the opposite sex know that we’re available. What it says we’re available for depends entirely on how we flirt but for the sake of this article, I’ll concentrate on the flirting that’s done when you’re with somebody you might like to develop a committed relationship with.
If you’re a bit on the shy side, perhaps lacking in self confidence after being away from the singles scene for a long time, flirting can be quite a daunting task. It isn’t difficult...

Female Self Pleasuring Tips For The Adventurous Wo

Female Self Pleasuring Tips For The Adventurous Woman

by: E.J. Davis

Unlike men, whose sex organs are available for self pleasure by stroking and stimulating any time of the day, women have to contrive to entice their clitoris out of hiding and available for pleasuring. One of the most common female self pleasuring tips is the use of sex toys and gadgets.
Luckily for us, female self pleasure toys can be found in our very own kitchen. Sure, jokes have been made about this, but it’s true. The usual suspects here are any penis-like vegetables and fruits, like carrots, cucumbers or zucchinis. Bananas are too soft to do the trick...

Arguments – The losing side of a relationship

Arguments – The losing side of a relationship

by: George Ministeri

In the 34 years that I have been doing psychic counseling, it is only in the past 10 years that I have been involved with couples counseling. One thing I have noticed with many couples, whether those couples are a man and a woman, two women, or two men, is that there is often a lack of real and meaningful communication. This lack of communication causes small conflicts to become heated arguments where issues are not resolved because both partners are trying to make their points and are not even listening to what the other person has to say. Nothing can ever be resolved when one person raises his or her voice with what only appears to the other person to be demands...

Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual Awakening

by: Sam Stevens

As we proceed further into the 21st century there is even more of a feeling that humanity as a whole is hearing “a calling”. Most of the clients in the realm that talk about this describe it as an “awakening” or experiencing an “enlightenment” or a “need for transformation.”
For some this process, a spiritual awakening is a gentle process develops as a consequence of many years of seeking, and researching practices having to do with self-development. This is the type of seeker who wants the spiritual awakening and seeks out the guidance of a teacher or to help them prepare themselves emotionally and physically for their spiritual awakening.
However, I have noticed that no matter how trained an individual nobody is ever ready for what Eastern religions ca...

Beauty Today: All Smoke and Mirrors?

Beauty Today: All Smoke and Mirrors?

by: Danna Schneider

Did you ever notice that the bar is continually being raised on exactly what physical characteristics define beauty? As I sit in front of the TV, I am bombarded by beauties with pouty lips, perfect bone structure, flawless skin, more “voluptuous” upper regions, size 2 waists, and hair that resembles spun silk. Take these same beauties and plop them back in time 20-30 years, when the advent of modern cosmetic technology had not even begun to reach its full potential. Do you think they would have had those same attributes you find yourself longing for when faced with these images? My guess is probably not, or at least not to the same extent.
True, genetics play a role in physical beauty, but with the likes of total “extreme” makeover r...

Diamond Setting – What You Need To Know

Diamond Setting – What You Need To Know

by: Brock Hammill

When it comes to placing your new diamond in a setting there are a couple of things to take into consideration.
Number of Prongs – How many prongs you get is up to you. The more prongs, the more secure the diamond will be. At the same time I don’t feel that having only four prongs makes your diamond more likely to fall out. It is a matter of taste.
Material of Prongs – What the prongs are made of does make a big difference. Your choices are usually gold or platinum. Platinum is much stronger and heavier than gold. Gold prongs can get bent and over time wear down. Platinum prongs will stay as new as the day you bought it and are less likely to bend.
Ring material – This is a matter of taste and budget...

Tips for Women as They Adjust to Married Life

Tips for Women as They Adjust to Married Life

by: Rachel Greenberg

There are basically two types of men out there. Men who like to watch sports, and men who don’t. I consider myself lucky to have met and married a man who falls into the latter category. But that doesn’t mean that our lives together are always pure wedded bliss. It takes a lot of work, especially if you have been out in the single world for a long time.
I’m sure you single ladies out there know what I am talking about. It’s tough to actually have to live with someone when you previously had the place to yourself. And what about the name change, the finances, and all the other administrative stuff that makes marriage so unsexy?? Let’s explore what you can do to handle the transition to married life with ease.

Fashionable Clothing That You Choose

Fashionable Clothing That You Choose

by: Mike Yeager

Clothing encompasses a wide range of apparel. From big and tall men’s clothing to women’s clothing. How we dress ourselves and what we wear tells the people around us a lot about who we are. Clothing has always been subject to change based on the dictates of fashion and whims. Some things however, about clothing don’t change. Quality. Quality clothing will always be in demand. Durability. Durable men’s and women’s clothing are always popular.
Clothing not only covers our bodies, it also allows us to enhance our appearance. A quality, sharp suit on a man makes him look more professional and successful. An attractive dress on a woman makes her look stylish and confident...

Freezer Spells

Freezer Spells

by: Sam Stevens

For the most part, I think that spells can be a valuable way to “act” out your anger, resentment, bitterness or jealousy. The very act of doing a spell can make a person who feels powerless or victimized, feel at least briefly, for at time that they are somehow in control of the situation again. I have found the following “freezer” spells to be quite satisfying to do, if you find yourself somehow dumped, oppressed or just plain wishing for some kind of psychological torture to stop. I am not completely sure if these spells or not, but when someone does me wrong, the first thing that pops into mind is the frosty insides of my refrigerator.
I love these spells because they fall under the category of corny spells, trailer trash wiccanary and because they origina...

A Cardio Snob’s Workout

A Cardio Snob’s Workout

by: Valerie McDermott

As I peruse the pages of various holiday issues of my favorite fitness/womens magazines I notice many articles about the benefits of practicing yoga at this stressful time of year. At the risk of sounding like a cardio snob, if I have 30 minutes a day (if I’m lucky) and i have to get into a special outfit in about a month and a half. I am not spending that 30 minutes taking cleansing breaths and stretching.
Don’t get me wrong, if you exercise regulary year round you can absolutely benefit from a yoga class 1 maybe 2 times a week. However, if you are now just starting a routine in hopes of fitting into a size 8, then mama get ready to sweat. Here is the routine I recommend.
Pick 3 (or at least 2) cardio activities to save you from burnout (s...
