Nose Job: My Plastic Surgery Fantasy

With the "no surgery face lift" series this week, I thought I would ask you ladies what you would change about your faces if you could. Please share your wish list with us. Personally, I would change the width of my nose. A little more definition (less point) and a narrower bridge would be great. However, it's not bad enough for me to actually get surgery. I'm sort of a chicken, and I don't like the idea of someone hacking on my face. Now, if I ever broke my nose, that would be different.

Beautiful Skin: One Doctor’s “Inside” Secrets Revealed

When we look into the eyes of another, surely we are looking at the soul of the one standing directly in front of us – or are we? It is difficult for many to get past the physical to gaze any further. We have become a visual society, judging according to our cultural beliefs. We perceive the outside to be an extension of the inside, whether it is health or beauty.

Healthy Fashion

Although the terms "health" and "fashion" may not be commonly used together right now, I believe we will soon see a deluge of "organic/healthy" clothing and accessories that takes us to a new era of living healthy and looking great while doing it.

Age, Beauty, and Health

I am reminded every day of my age by looking in the mirror, remembering my oldest daughter's is 24, and by the wisdom (and trivia) that I have acquired over the years. I'm not going to write about mid-life crises or anything like that. On the contrary, I believe that neither your state of health nor your beauty should have one iota to do with the number of years you've been on the planet; unless, of course, they are better because you have made a few more mistakes and learned from them.

Sun Damage Awareness

I know that I have done at least one post about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun's damaging UV rays; however, I can't resist doing another as I keep witnessing those around me get horrible burnt - one person in particular - my son. Though his fried shoulders were a result of a complete misunderstanding between the two of us; I still felt like the world's worst mother for not making sure he was covered.

The Importance of Good Posture

I was thinking about how many women don't reach their body's beauty potential because of poor posture. I have been guilty of this horrible laziness for most of my life. However, I do check myself when I feel that the old habits have returned. Unfortunately, I also see my daughters falling prey to the same chronic slouching. I'm always telling them to stand up straight - I just get rolling eyes and an "oh, Mom." But, did I listen to my mother when she harped at me over the same thing? NO. So, here I am today with problems...just ask my chiropractor.

Deep Breathing: A Beautiful Thing

Deep Breathing is one of those things that makes you think of meditation, yoga, and, in my case, childbirth. You really have to consider why we do it when 1.) we need to relax; 2.) we need to perform physically; and 3.) we need to clear our minds. Hmmm...maybe there is something to this ancient ritual that has been practiced by nearly every culture on the planet.

What Is Cellulite?

What exactly is cellulite, anyway? Great question considering most women don't know the answer. Well, it's not some new form of tissue, a special kind of fat that attacks your legs and butt, and it is not going to go away with some drugstore creme. Cellulite is, in fact, simply excess body fat. And because women happen to store more fat than men do, it is no surprise that we end up with warehouses of the stuff on our thighs.
