Cosmetic Tips And Tricks™

Image
Women have been wearing cosmetics for thousands of years. Archaeologists have evidence of men and women using cosmetics in Egypt over 6000 years ago! Wealthy Egyptian women would paint their nails, massage their faces with creams and oils, apply lipstick and eyeliner, and even color their hair. Obviously, things haven’t changed that much over the last few millennia !

How Do You Put Cosmetics On ?

The most important thing you can do when applying makeup is to start with a clean face. A clean face gives you the perfect palate for applying the rest of your cosmetics. A dirty face, on the other hand, will make it much more difficult. A clean face will also help keep your skin look clear and healthy.

After you have thoroughly cleaned your face, apply foundation smoothly and evenly. When applied correctly, it should not look like you’re wearing foundation. The purpose of foundation is to smooth out your skin colors to cover up any blemishes and to help you put your cosmetics on better. Your fa…

Why Colour is So Important in Fashion™

Image
Colour is the first thing other people notice about us, and its impact is immediate and long-lasting. Our fashion colour choices say a lot about the image we are trying to portray and how we feel about ourselves. So what does colour tell people?

Within seconds of meeting you, others will respond to the 'colour messages' flashed by your clothes. Different colours can make people feel a certain way. In fact, it has been determined by medical science that colour can influence the viewer's hormones, blood pressure and body temperature. Colour also has an impact on:

* Your apparent shape;
* Your apparent weight;
* Your apparent personality;
* Your emotions
* Others emotions

Other important considerations are how appropriate the colour is for the location, occasion, time of year, your age and of course, your natural colouring.

We are all influenced by colour every day, whether we realise it or not. If we're having a bad day and not feeling good about ourselves, we tend to automatica…

Readers of Romance Novels Have Better Sex Lives™

Image
According to BusinessWeek, every 5 seconds someone buys a romance novel. For those more mathematically inclined—that makes romance novels a $1.2 billion dollar a year industry. And it’s no wonder. Experts agree that readers of romance novels find it easier to “get in the mood” and on average, even have sex with their partners more often. Psychology Today states that women who read romance novels make love with their partners 74% more often than women who don’t. Why? Because, according to a scientific study conducted by Harold Leitenberg of the The Journal of Sex Research and Psychological Bulletin, when women fantasize frequently (as they do when they read romance novels), they have sex more often, have more fun in bed, and engage in a wider variety of erotic activities. Many therapists now go so far as to recommend reading steamy romance stories to boost a woman’s sex drive. Their reasoning: “taking part in enjoyable activities such as walking with a partner, listening to music, havi…

Is There a Special Vitamin Supplement For a Woman ?™

Image
Women have special health needs at different stages of our lives. We may need a specific vitamin supplement for a woman at one stage of our life and need something completely different at another period. Doctors often prescribe vitamin and iron supplements for a woman who is expecting. If she does, take them as directed and do not alter the dose. While a lack of a particular vitamin can cause deficiencies, too much can result in toxicity. When a vitamin supplement for a woman is recommended or prescribed it is because it contains the specific vitamin or vitamins a woman’s body needs. Your doctor will take into the account the amount of calcium and other nutrients that you need on a daily basis and make his recommendation. You should familiarize yourself with the different vitamins and their role in your health. You want to know in what foods you can get certain vitamins and how much of each of the vitamins that your body needs. If you are taking a vitamin supplement for a woman becaus…

Sexually Stimulating Herbs™

Image
Herbs have been used in all cultures around the world to stimulate sexual arousal, physical sexual feelings and sexual abilities. In the modern world herbs are increasingly more used both to increase the sexual pleasure and as medicine to help for sexual dysfunctions. The herbs are used both in their original form or the working substances are extracted and used as ingredients in tinctures, ointments or pills.

THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF SEXUALLY STIMULATING HERBS

The working principles of the chemical components in these herbs are of several kinds, and the ingredients make their effects at different places in the human body.

- Some herbal ingredients stimulate generally the function of the neural system. Since sexual response and feelings are dependent of a well working neural system, the herbs will also increase the sexual response.

- Other herbal ingredients generally improve the body's blood circulation. The better blood flow and the better control of the blood flow will then make t…

Proper Bra Sizing™

Image
Most women do not wear the correct bra size. With monthly water retention cycles, dieting, and general aging, it also should not be assumed that the size you were two years ago is the same size you are today (or that a bra can be worn that long, for that matter). Even a change of 5 pounds can change your bra size. This guide will help you to properly measure your bust, so that you can find the size for you. While most shops will have a salesperson to assist you in proper measurements, in order to buy sexy lingerie from a catalog, it is important to know your size. How To Know If Your Current Bra Does Not Fit The back rides up. This may mean that the cups are too small, or the band is too tight. The front of the band is too tight to get a finger under it. This means you need a larger band. The bra cups should be entirely filled, or you may need a smaller cup. If, on the other hand, the cups are overflowing, you may need a larger cup or a different style of bra. If the underwire digs in…

Top Ten Strengths of Workplace Reentry Women™

Image
Women returning to the workforce often sell themselves short, partly because of society’s view that if you’re not in the paid workforce you are “doing nothing”. The other part of this equation is because after a few years of dealing mainly with children and duties around the home, many women find own self esteem and self confidence is low as to what they have to offer in the world of work. But as any savvy employer knows, a woman returning to the workplace brings with her extremely valuable skills and qualities. Here’s a top ten list of the gifts, the blessings, the strengths that Workplace Reentry Women bring with them to the workplace ….. whether they know it or not! 1. Multi-tasking: Any woman running a home and family has to be able to at least 16 different things at one time!

This is skill and half and immensely valuable out in…

What Women Should Know When Dating™

What women should know when dating

Unlike before, when the total outcome or atmosphere of dating solely depends on the man, women of today have learned how to take part of the entire process. They have realized that in order to make most out on a date, they have their own “roles” to play. They are now more enthusiastic and open to the idea that if they want to have a successful date, they have to follow basic and general rules in dating—especially in first dates.

WHEN EVE GOES ON A DATE

Even the most confident women experience anxiety attacks when they go out on a date…what more to those who are not so confident about themselves? If a woman decided to go on date—especially with the man she is interested with—there should be no space for self-doubt. Although being rejected can be a horrifying thought, women can never go wrong if they follow the simple rules on dating.

If you are up on a date, the first thing to consider is how to make the date itself enjoyable for the both of you. If he su…

Profile of Women Leaders™

Image
Leadership is based on two words, "pressure and support"and that the leadership is the power to influence people to move in a direction that you believe in your heart is a good direction for most people" (Fennell, 1999, p. 267). Adams and Yoder noted that "evidence from contemporary studies on sex-roles and leadership indicates that men and women, with similar education, career aspirations and training, have basically identical scores on measures of psychological masculinity and femininity." In other words, the traits we assume are important in good leadership can be found among people of both genders.What makes a leader is a complex question. It includes factors from the environment in which an individual was raised, his or her family situation, and his or her personality traits. . The following discussion is a summary of my own observations plus some of the conclusions of othersAccording to an overview of research conducted by me ,women are a fast-growing se…

Knowing the Causes of Low Libido in Women™

Image
There are many causes of low libido in women. Many would think that it can only be attributed to a few and simple things, however, contrary to what women might already know now lowering of the libido can sprout from mere boredom to more serious medical conditions.

Research has shown that the loss of a woman's sex drive can be categorized into three different groups: emotional conditions, physical conditions, and medical conditions.

The first is perhaps the most common cause of the lowered libido in women. If you are under stress, have a poor perception of yourself, anxious or depressed you will not be easily aroused, hence a lowered libido.

Other causes of low libido in women can be attributed to physical conditions. These physical conditions pertain to any sexual problem the woman might have. Sexual problems can range from painful intercourse to vaginal dryness.

These experiences alone can discourage any woman from being aroused. Other physical conditions that can affect a woman'…

Women Leading the Way in Social Marketing™

Image
When it comes to social marketing, the gurus to follow are not the "usual suspects" of internet marketing. Internet marketing, generally dominated by men, uses a very different approach than social marketing. The hard sell, always-be-closing approach falls flat in the Web 2.0 world of relationship building.With social marketing, the focus is on planting the seeds of trust and like ability that blossom into profits later on. Traditional internet marketing takes a much more aggressive approach- all you have to do is look at a typical sales page from an internet marketer versus a Facebook profile page and you'll see the difference.If you look around at people who are rising to the top of social networking, you will see the brightest and the best tend to be women. What does that tell you? From an anthropological point of view, you can say that women are wired to approach things from a relationship point of view, rather than a combative one. While the warrior was out spearing…

Lies Abused Women Tell Themselves™

Image
There are, apparently, two kinds of abused women; those who grow up in a climate of abuse, and those who grow up in functional families, enjoy a healthy relationship but then become vulnerable either through bereavement or another major life crisis.Of the many, many women who have spoken or written to me over the years, offhand, I can only think of two who belong to the second category.However different their past experiences of relationships may have been, nevertheless, in the course of their abusive relationship, the beliefs of these two groups of women become, tragically, indistinguishable.This happens because abused women try very hard to learn from their relationships. They are desperate to learn what they are doing wrong so they can change it.There are, essentially, two ways that they learn. The first is from what their partner says. The second is from their interpretation of his behaviour.An abusive partner rapidly becomes the most influential person in their life.
He has the po…

Men, Women, and Sex™

Image
During my many years of counseling couples, I have frequently worked with the sexual problems that often occur in committed relationships. The most common complaint from men regarding sex is frequency, and the most common complaint from woman is lack of emotional intimacy. There is a very good reason why these are the most common complaints – men and women are very different when it comes to sex! The biological sexual drive, or lack of it, relates to how much testosterone is present. Men biologically have much more testosterone than women. Men’s biology equips them to be ready for sex most of the time, which is nature’s way of ensuring the survival of the species. Women, on the other hand, often do not experience a biological sexual drive unless they are in the middle of their menstrual cycle. This fact can create a big problem in relationships. I’ve often heard men complain that: “It’s not fair. My wife is in control of our sex life. If she wants it, then we have it. If she doesn’t, …

Boost Your Fertility While You Sleep™

Image
Everyone is aware of the cycles of the sun and moon. They give structure to our days, months, and seasons. But did you know that the sun and moon can influence your fertility ?

When you are in sync with the earth's natural rhythms and cycles you can boost your fertility. If you work against nature's rhythms as many of us do, then you may be harming your delicate fertility balance.

Your biological clock is intimately linked to your reproductive system by utilizing the same hormones that trigger ovulation and sperm maturation. Therefore both women and men are affected by respecting or ignoring their natural rhythms.

Importance of Bright Light

Getting adequate sunlight or other full spectrum light during the day is key to optimum fertility for many reasons. Vitamin D is created in our bodies when we are exposed to sunlight and Vitamin D deficiencies have been linked to infertility.

Adequate sunlight also helps regulate circadian rhythms which allow you to sleep better at night. Regula…
