Is your Authentic Designer Handbag really Authenti

Is your Authentic Designer Handbag really Authentic?

by: Deanna Key

So, you have just bought a new designer handbag. Maybe you have had your eye on a Christian Dior Saddle Handbag, or Gucci Jackie-O that you know your friends will drool over . You got a huge discount off of the hefty retail price and you’re feeling pretty good about yourself. But know you are wondering- is my designer handbag authentic.
Determining the authenticity on any product can be a little tricky, but if you know the basics, you will be able to spot a fake in just a few seconds.
One of the best ways to ensure your new handbag is authentic is to look at the bag itself. Designer handbags are popular and cost as much as they due because first and for-most they are made from quality materials...

Make Your Pores Behave

Make Your Pores Behave

by: Natalie Katsman

Smooth and soft skin, even tone, rosy glow, pores invisible to the naked eye… Perfect complexion. Isn’t that what we hope to see when coming to the mirror?
But the reality is harsh and mirrors don’t lie. The pores are there, perfectly visible, and seem to get bigger and bigger.
Why would Mother Nature put the most visible ones where you can’t hide them? Life would be so much easier if we could keep them out of sight (and out of mind). I bet Nature had no idea people would consider pores a problem and, of course, had the best reasons in mind.
Pores are tiny (oh well, comparatively tiny) passages for oil that is produced in sebum glands to reach the surface of the skin...

The Cyber Lothario

The Cyber Lothario

by: Kathryn Lord

Are you writing to someone who is romancing you off your feet? Does this guy seem to know just what to say or write that gets you a step or two further down the garden path?
Perhaps more dangerous than the notorious Internet rapists and murderers are the Cyber Lotharios. Maybe you know one. Smooth as silk. Seduction is his native language.
More dangerous, because these guys (well, maybe there are girls too, but I am more familiar with the guys) are GOOD.
These guys are the Internet equivalent of a Bill Clinton, if Bill Clinton hadn’t gotten caught. They are the cyber version of handsome — they write beautifully, know just what you want to hear and tell you. They POUR it on, and for a thirsty woman, it is nectar from the Gods.
These fellows post on dating...

Good Places to Meet Excellent Men

Good Places to Meet Excellent Men

by: Terry Hernon MacDonald

So, you’re convinced that you have zero opportunities to meet men.
Are you stuck in an office all day with the same stiffs day in and day out? Have you tried singles’ dances, only to leave feeling worse than when you went in? Did the last loser your aunt set you up with squash your Chihuahua when he screeched up the driveway?
Well, don’t fret. I have some ideas for you. While advice columnists steer single women into churches to meet honest, loyal, and successful men, I wouldn’t dream of it. Church is great for communing with God, but it never struck me as the best place to meet a man. People, including me, are on our best behavior at church...

Women of the Net

Women of the Net

by: Cathy Bryant

Two years ago, when I had been working online about a year, an online colleague approached me about writing an article for a special edition of his newsletter which was to feature successful women online. Naturally, I agreed.
As I was researching for the article, I read a statistic that revealed that women over 50 were one of the fastest growing groups of internet users. That didn’t surprise me, as at the time I was approaching that “golden age” and had contact with others online who were also in that age group.
All these women were using the vehicle of the internet to earn an income online – and the numbers were growing every day.
So I wrote the article, and it was published not only in my colleague’s newsletter but many others as well.
Now, two years lat...

Valentines Day

Valentines Day

by: Bud Smith

Ever wondered how February 14 became, the day on which we celebrate and explore love in all its many ideals, Valentines Day.
There are many differing opinions on how Valentines Day started.
One story say that when the Roman Empire reigned, a festival every February was held in honour of the God of Fertility and during this time, young men would choose their mate. When a Emperor named Claudius can around, he outlawed all marriages in fear that the men would not be able to fight. Young couples still fell in love though and still wished to marry and they took these desires to the Catholic Bishop Valentine who, understanding love, began to secretly marry couples. When Claudius found out, he had Valentine arrested and ordered put to death...

Hair 101

Hair 101

by: Nicole Elizabeth Smith

The more you know about your hair, the better you can care for it! Your hair has two separate parts: the root and the shaft. The root is the part of the hair located just under the skin surface. The hair follicle houses the entire hair root. The papilla is where all of the action takes place; it is a rich blood and nerve supply that nourishes the hair shaft and produces hair cells. The bulb is a white sack located on the lower part of the hair that covers the papilla.
The hair shaft is what is grows out of the hair follicle and is what we consider to be hair. It has three parts; the cuticle, cortex and medulla.
The outer layer of your hair shaft is called the cuticle, which holds your hair together...

Getting The Most From Your Candles

Getting The Most From Your Candles

by: Sharon Jacobsen

I love burning candles and have them all around the house. Long ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones, in a plethora of colours. I burn them in the evening when I’m relaxing; I burn them at mealtimes; and I burn them in the bathroom when I’m pampering myself. Any excuse to light a candle really.
But candles don’t always fit the holder, and sometimes they burn down too far and the wax gets stuck! It’s at times like this that candles aren’t quite as much fun!
Here are some candle burning tips I’ve picked up through the years:
1.Cold candles will burn more slowly. Wrap them in foil or cling-film to prevent the wicks from absorbing moisture then pop them in the fridge for an hour.
2...
