Astrology & Sex

Image
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This one's easy. As long as you can catch up to this hyperactive, physically strong and straightforward type, you can get what you want without too much fanfare. Just ask, "Hey, wanna have sex ?" and that will probably do the trick. Don't count on a lot of romancing or foreplay. The hot, Mars-fueled desire that sexually motivates Aries will push your spring-born love to cut to the chase much more quickly than you might be used to. This strong, powerful lovin' could be the kind of thing you fantasize about, so don't complain if it doesn't come packaged in a formalized, perfectly planned, start-to-finish package.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus walks the earth in a state of semi seduction, so it isn't too hard to get this creature comfort oriented individual to succumb to the siren call of sexual gratification. You can communicate with a lascivious glance, a love poem or even some flowers, but that probably won't do the tr…

Fitness program

Embarking on a physical training program brings rewards that can be achieved by little else. Whether exercising to stay fit, feel good, or just to look terrific, you can add power to your efforts by employing the insights and techniques used by high-achievers to obtain that 'look' you've always dreamed of!

Before beginning your journey on the road to fitness you must realise that you are in total control and therefore should have a real desire to be fit. A wishy-washy approach to fitness, or anything else for that matter, usually ends in failure. It is therefore wise to keep yourself motivated.

By realising that the power of your decision adds much weight to the acquirement of any objective, you should fire yourself with enthusiasm for the task ahead.

The first and most important factor to employ is to release any past failures from your mind. Dwelling on past failures will only have an adverse affect on your current training.

If such thoughts occur ask yourself the question &…

Tips for Wedding Shoes

Image
Just like your wedding day, you'll want your wedding shoes to be absolutely perfect. Here are a few tips and things to consider when shopping for shoes for your wedding.

Comfortable Wedding Shoes
The perfect wedding shoes will need to be many things, but mostly, they must be comfortable. Just think, you'll be walking down the aisle, posing for photographs, greeting attendants, cutting the cake, and possibly dancing in your bridal shoes. This could add up to hours and hours on your feet, so be sure, above all else, that you choose shoes that are comfortable on your feet.

Heels of Wedding Shoes
The heel height of your wedding shoes is of utmost importance. Your dress will be fitted to accommodate the height of your bridal shoes, and if you're not comfortable in really high heels, your wedding may not be the best time to try them out.

If you want a bit of added height, but aren't used to stilettos, you can consider platform heels, or lower kitten heels. And, of course, if you…

Look older

Image
1. Stop wearing your hair in a ponytail and invest in a trendy, yet sophisticated, hairstyle. Look for pictures in magazines and tell your stylist you want to look older. You might go for a shorter hairstyle, which tends to age people.

2. Wear makeup. Play up your eyes or your lips, but never both at the same time. Make sure you always wear mascara at the very least & a swipe of gloss. If you want to go dramatic, try a deep red lipstick, but don't make up your eyes too much. A swipe of mascara will do you. And try putting it on your top lashes only. Makeup will help "age" you.

3. Dress like a 22 year old college graduate. OK, you're a few years away from being 22, but still when you're not going to dance classes and you're going out with friends or shopping, dress like someone with a desk job would. Try heels, a sexy, but sophisticated skirt and a cool jacket.

4. Invest in Lucky Magazine. Lucky is a great magazine for stylish young people (and people in gene…

Applying Lipstick

Image
A beauty tip I've always sworn by is to pick your best feature and play it up. If you are complimented often on your lips, consider yourself lucky, it's time to play them up. Here's 16 tips on how to apply lipstick.

Don't play up the eyes and the mouth Women who wear heavy eye makeup and dark lipstick can look clownish. If you want to wear red lipstick, keep the rest of your makeup light. If you are playing up the eyes, keep your mouth light with a gloss or light lip color that doesn't stand out.

For "plump" lips, apply liner just outside your natural lipline. Dab a bit of gloss in the middle of your bottom lip.

How to apply lipstick ? I don't believe in rules to applying lipstick. Some women use special lipstick brushes (pictured here). I own one and never, ever use it. Others use their middle finger (I once said this was a beauty faux pas and got reamed by a reader, I have since changed my mind). Most women apply right from the tube. Choose what's …
