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...

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...

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...

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...

Fashionable Clothing That You Choose

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...

Finding the Dress of Your Dream at a Price You Can Afford

Finding the Dress of Your Dreams At a Price You Can Afford
Inspired by my own search for my wedding dress, I decided to write this article because it turns out you can get lucky if you research and are patient. I started looking for my dress a few months before I got married and I found the dress I loved, but it was $800. My dress was really simple and this was not in my budget, so I got the company name and the style number and searched everywhere online and off for this dress. Finally I found it offline for $499 at a local bridal shop. But them I was looking for flower girl dresses in a popular department store catalog and imagine my surprise when I saw my dress for $299. I couldn’t believe it...

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?
