  • 7 Signs You Are PMSing
    Posted In Body and Skin Care / Top to Toe
    Published On 23 Jun 2015

    Unless you’re one of the few lucky women who seem to be living on a different planet, the warning signs of PMS are unmissable. It’s that time of the month to reconsider all your life choices and scream at your mirror. Here are the biggest signs that regularly remind you of PMSing, just in case you hit your head and forgot.

    1. The Muffin Top

    While cramps are their own torture, here comes the moment when your clothes don’t fit. Bloating makes you feel like the Michelin man. The skinny jeans that you wore yesterday now look and feel one size too small. Time to dig deep in your closet for those loose tops!

    2. Cravings Central

    Chocolate, ice cream, chips, and pizza are your new food groups! Even when you know how you’ll feel afterward, you just can’t help it. The sugar cravings are bad for your waistline any time. But the salt craving leads to even more bloating. And who can sleep after a late supper of 1,000 calories?

    3. Waxing Torture

    You planned your bikini waxing for this week and you can’t reschedule? Tough luck. Everything hurts more, but waxing is a nightmare when you’re PMSing. Wait for your period to be over or prepare to experience pain that’s usually reserved for child birth.

    4. Everyone Is Annoying

  • Eating Out but on a Diet? Here's How
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Healthy Diets
    Published On 26 May 2015

    Sticking to your diet when you’re eating at a restaurant can be tricky, even if they respect all your dietary needs and wishes. If the trouble in your weight loss program is the fact that you eat too few home cooked meals, you can still make progress by sticking to a few rules.

    Check out the best weight loss tips for eating out, and you won’t have to turn down invitations just because you don’t think you can stick to your plan when the menu and the bread sticks are a constant temptation.

    Be Prepared

    Deciding what you’re going to eat before you get there is one of the wisest things you can do in order to stick to your diet. If the restaurant or the diner doesn’t have a website, you can wing it the first time, but always pick up a take out menu when you leave. Look for the healthiest options on the menu and choose the one that sounds the most appetizing right now.

    Stick to Portion Control

    Even when you’re eating at a restaurant that’s serving only light dishes, portions are probably still much bigger than you need for a meal. Based on how big the portion is, stop once you finish between 50% and 75% of what’s on your plate. Knowing when to stop and taking the rest with you in a doggy bag is one of the best weight loss tips for eating out.

    Avoid the Extra Calories

    Posted In Body and Skin Care / Acne and Skin Problems
    Published On 26 May 2015

    With the help of a few good skincare and gym tips, you can prevent post-workout breakouts. Whether the problem area is your face or you’re dealing with workout related acne in other places on your body, the basics are the same.

    Find out how to prevent exercise breakouts and make sure that you’re getting the exercise you want, but your skin won’t suffer for it. Take a look at the best tips that help you forget about breakouts that happen after you sweat while exercising.

    Skip the Makeup

    When you’re exercising, your face should not be covered by makeup, because that’s one of the main causes of post-workout breakouts. If you want some touch-ups without having makeup clog your pores, opt for a little loose mineral powder, since it’s the best non-comedogenic option. Anything else can contribute to acne and breakouts.

    Cleanse Your Face Carefully Afterwards

    Scrubbing your skin is a really bad idea about an intense workout, but you do need to clean it. Prevent exercise breakouts by using a gentle cleanser and being gentle to your skin. Dry it by blotting with a soft towel. When you’re taking a shower, always remember to wash your face last, after you’ve rinsed any shampoo or conditioner from your hair.

  • 10 Habits That Hurt Your Relationship
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
    Published On 26 May 2015

    Everyone knows that lying all the time or constantly comparing your guy to other men can have a negative impact on your relationship, but there are plenty of other habits that are considered more harmless, yet they can be just as toxic.

    Check out some of the worst habits that hurt your relationship. They might not have a huge effect in the short run, but if you don’t shake them, these habits can end up chipping at the foundation of your relationship and lead to its end.

    1. Always Trying to Improve Him

    Giving positive feedback and pushing each other to be better people is very important in every relationship, but there’s a line that you shouldn’t cross. By always being focused on changing and improving him, you’re sending the message that he was never good enough for you without the extra work. Sooner or later, this will create big problems in your relationship.

    2. Taking Him for Granted

    One of the worst habits that hurt your relationship is taking him, and his small gestures of love and affection for granted. By not thanking him when he’s doing something you appreciate, you’re turning those things into the norm, and they can become expectations. Make sure that you tell him and show him how much you appreciate him on a regular basis.

    3. Criticizing His Family and Friends Constantly

  • 10 Signs You're Overtraining
    Posted In Fitness and Diet / Exercises
    Published On 25 May 2015

    Whether you’re training for a marathon or trying to lose weight, working out too much can end having more than a few negative effects on your body, and even your state of mind. Overtraining can lead to life-threatening complications, like ketoacidosis, but there are plenty of red flags that you should notice before that point.

    Discover the most common signs you’re overtraining, and make sure that you’re giving your muscles enough rest to rebuild themselves.

    1. You Struggle to Finish Your Workout

    When you notice that your progress has peaked and you’re finding it hard to get through your workout routine, even when you keep switching muscle groups, there’s a problem. Overtraining your body isn’t just something that happens to athletes. When you feel like you’re experiencing regression in your efforts, it’s time to take a step back and give yourself a little rest.

    2. Your Motivation Is Wavering

    One of the biggest signs you’re overtraining is losing your motivation even though nothing else has changed. Loss of competitive drive is another sign that there’s a problem with your workout regimen or that you’re simply doing too much. The lack of motivation can also affect other areas of your life, including dieting.

  • What NOT to Wear as a Wedding Guest
    Posted In Fashion and Style / Style Tips
    Published On 25 May 2015

    When you want to look your best at a wedding, it’s important to respect the wishes of the bride and groom, but there’s more to the right look than just sticking to the dress code. Whether it’s a beach or a country club wedding, the basics of what not to wear are similar.

    Discover some of the most common wedding guest style mistakes, and make sure you’re not making them yourself. By avoiding these wedding fashion faux pas, you’re guaranteed a suitable look for the ceremony and reception.

    Wearing White

    Unless the wedding invitation specifically notes that white is allowed or even recommended, it should never be among your choices for the right wedding look. More and more celebrity brides are using white for the bridesmaid dresses, but you don’t want to match the brides or the bridesmaids by choosing the same color. Off white is skirting the line, so the father it is from immaculate white, the better.

    Choosing a Club Dress

    If it’s great for a night of clubbing, it’s probably not a good choice for a wedding reception. One of the biggest wedding guest style mistakes is opting for dressed that are perfect for a girls night out, but not so suitable for a reception, even if it’s an informal one.

  • How to Make the First Trip Together as a Couple Amazing
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Relationship Advice
    Published On 20 May 2015

    When you’re in a new relationship taking a trip together, even if it’s just a weekend getaway can be stressful on both of you. Away from your routines, you might see your partner for who he really is and he might to the same.

    In order to enjoy your first trip together as a couple in the best way, it’s important to prepare and follow a few simple rules, whether it’s a weekend getaway or a road trip. Here are the right tips that can help you navigate this new situation and avoid any major conflict.

    Don’t Aim Too High

    If you’ve been dating for a short while, a weekend trip is the best option. A few months into the relationship, you should plan a four day, but it’s usually not wise to rush into a full week if you’ve been together for less than six months. Make sure that you’re both prepared for it, and you don’t commit to a long vacation right away.

    Compromise on the Location

    Going on a trip to a location that doesn’t really interest you at all is not a good idea. Relationships are about compromise, but your first trip together as a couple should be about both of you, not just someone doing something nice for the other. Make sure you’re both getting what you want out of it by choosing the right location.

  • 10 First Date Red Flags
    Posted In Love and Relationship / Flirting and Dating
    Published On 20 May 2015

    Trusting your instinct on the first date with a guy is very important. Even if you should give him a real chance, some warning signs show you that giving him another chance probably won’t pay off.

    Check out some of the biggest first date red flags, and decide for yourself if a single one or a combination of a few is enough to dismiss a guy altogether. Sometimes a bad day can make him act unlike himself on the first date, but most of the time these signs show some deeper issues that might make him wrong for you.

    1. He Drinks Too Much

    Sticking to a two drink maximum is a wise choice for both of you on the first date. Unless you’ve known each other for a long time, it’s disrespectful to get too tipsy or outright sloppy drunk. It doesn’t mean he necessarily has a problem with alcohol, but it does mean that he doesn’t respect you enough.

    2. He Won’t Let Go of His Phone

    One of the biggest first date red flags is the fact that he pays attention to his phone. Again, this is disrespectful on the first date, and it can show you two things. He’s either really preoccupied with his work and he’ll never really put you first, or he’s not that into you, so he doesn’t really care what you think.

    3. He Wants to Get Too Personal
