Raising Eyebrows… With Your Eyebrows

Eyebrows are those lovely little things that are supposed to frame and draw attention to our eyes. But sometimes we forget to reign those suckers in and before we know it, they become little attention whores. Don’t let it happen to you.


Your eyebrows are supposed to follow the line of your browbone. If you hold a pencil straight up alongside your nose, your eyebrows should STOP at the inner corner of your eye...

Category: HumorWedding


It’s your big day! Here’s what it looks like if you don’t dress for it.

10. The Garbage Bag.

Nothing says ’til death do us part like Glad.


9. The Mullet Dress

Business in the front, party in the back. The flat sandals and frizzy ‘do are a nice touch.


8. The… Bird?… Dress

The slit up to the butt-cheeks in the back is especially attractive.


7. The Camo Dress

I’ll give her one thing… she’s dedicated. Wait… where’d she go?


6. The Breast Dress

This is what happens when you get fitted for your dress after six Long Island Iced Teas.


5. The Other Breast Dress.

Apparently, this gal went to the same drunken dress-fitting party.

Dating Nightmares… The “Hey You” text

Category: EmpowermentHappinessMental HealthRelationships


We’ve all been there… a guy comes on to us, drops a decent pickup line. He’s sexy, he’s charming, he’s alarmingly single. Yeah… Alarmingly. Why is a guy like THIS single?

He takes us out. He’s attentive, attractive… what’s not to like? He calls us for another date, then another. We’re trying to be cautious, but we’re hooked.

Then one day he promises to call. And doesn’t. We wait. And wait. And wait. We really do have more self-respect than this. Honest. It’s just that he’s SO damned hot. And he really seemed to be as into us as we (reluctantly) were into him. We wait some more. He still doesn’t call. Finally, we swallow our pride and send a text… “Hi. How was your day? :)”

We wait for the response.

No response.

“Aw, crap,” we think. “I shouldn’t have texted him...

Have you ever noticed that his skin looks younger than yours? Here’s why.

Thick skin

First of all, men’s skin is thicker than women’s. That’s why, as we age, we get all crepey and puckery while they get “character lines”. I’m laughing now at I write this, and I probably shouldn’t, since I’m only making those crow’s feet worse. :)

What can we do about it?

Our thin skin is more sensitive to UVA rays… so make sure you’re wearing a daily moisturizer AND foundation with at least an SPF 15.


Second, men have smaller sebaceous glands, but secrete more oil. Their oil production doesn’t taper off to match ours until about age 50.

What can we do about it?

Moisturize inside and out. Moisturize day and night on the outside, and drink plenty of water to moisturize from the inside!


As women...
