When you think about it, there are only so many moments in everyone’s lives that deserve to be called truly memorable. And if you think a little bit more, all the places you were looking for them were wrong. Your favorite team winning the Championship or your favorite movie finally getting a sequel is certainly falling into this group. Your girlfriend saying the “Big Yes”, on the other side, will mark one giant milestone and change both of your lives for the better. So, with things as they are why you would not be a bit romantic and make this day pop up in your memories even more?

Propose Your Girlfriend at Her Favorite Place

It may be the house where she grew up, some museum or monument, the place where you first met, or the place you shared the first kiss. It really does not matter, as long as she holds it close to her heart. Once you are there, ask someone to take a picture of you two. Of course, instead of posing you will kneel and propose her. This way you should give the place she already considers important entirely new significance in her heart and make her very happy.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the New Year’s Eve

New Year marks the new beginning in everyone’s lives. Is there any more appropriate date than to propose your girlfriend than New Year’s Eve? To do this, virtually any place on the world will serve you just fine, but for the best effect, take her to some restaurant with a balcony or a view to an open sky. Wait until the midnight approaches, take her out and ask her to marry you. Give her some excuse to answer until midnight, and when she finally says “Yes”, share the romantic kiss under the glorious New Year fireworks.

Propose Your Girlfriend with a Building Sign

There are several ways to do that. For, example you can take your girlfriend to a picnic in the city park, and once you open up a champagne bottle, signal your friends in the nearby building to uncover giant “Marry me” building sign. Alternatively, you can arrange with a taxi driver to take a deliberate deflection from the route you are usually traveling together, and then stop somewhere building sign will be clearly visible, or rent the sign opposite to your favorite restaurant.

Propose Your Girlfriend in a Balloon

Take your future fiancé to a ride above your city, or some romantic landscape if that is what you prefer. Once you are high enough, and the whole world seems far beneath you, go down on your knees, take out the ring, and ask your girlfriend’s hand. Turning on some appropriate tune, can certainly do you no harm. Alternatively, you can fly above the gigantic “Marry me” sign which will be visible from your balloon only.

Propose Your Girlfriend in the Street

Although city streets do not look like too romantic backdrop for proposal, they give you enough freedom and a lot to play with. Ask a group of people to pose as bystanders and let them raise the letters forming “Will You Marry Me” when you signal them. Or you can stage a little performance spiced with street musicians playing your favorite song, and your friends popping up from their hidings with applause after she says “Yes”. Larger the scale, the better.

Although the wedding usually steals the spotlight as the most important moment in one pair’s together life, proposal still remains the most romantic one. Don’t allow it to become wasted. Instead, do your best to make it as memorable and nice as possible, so you and your future wife will always have something to remember in the quiet, romantic moments.

Back to school- few ideas to “borrow” from teenagers

Years ago you were a cheerful teenager with passion for energy and party time, and now when you’re an adult version of yourself with lovely family and comfy house, you sometimes find yourself longing for good old times of constant fun and nonchalant lifestyle. It’s not that your “totally family man” life is less interesting and enjoying, but it’s about seeing your teenage kids living the life to the fullest and you being nostalgic about the time when you looked on the world through the pink eyeglasses. Well, if this looks like something going through your head these days, it is perfect time to evoke your high school memories by trying again cool teenage adventures:

Stay young at heart

While you’re relaxing in your comfy backyard armchair, go back to the times when you and your friends had a high school rock band and every weekend was only about gathering together, playing good old rock n’ roll hits and having hilarious party time. Instead of being lethargic and dejected, why wouldn’t you give a buzz to couple of your high-school mates and suggest them re-establishing of your old rock band. Wipe the dust from your old-school guitar, agree weekend “rocking sessions” and feel how the adrenalin warms up your blood again. Even after you’ve become a parent, don’t forget to keep your inner child as well.

Buy an old-timer cabriolet

Well, yes, you’ll invest a bit more money into this “teen-spirited” project, but when you sit into your laid-back -style cabriolet, turn the music on and feel the breeze in your hair, you won’t regret a single penny you spent on it. Give yourself 5 minutes of high-school fame, recall irresistible teenage vibe and hit the roads, Jack!

Camp beside the lake

Gather your friends and organize relishing weekend camping beside the lake, just like you did during your high-school summer holidays, with campfire, barbequing and swimming included. It’s never late to remind your wife on how she felt in love with you, and long walks alongside the lake, lovely moments beneath stunning sunset are just perfect opportunities for that.

Brighten up your life

Instead of letting your days pass in monotony and routine, better enter more light into your life and feel the charms of afternoon sun by spending more time outside. You can let the sun embrace your living space even when you’re inside, so while considering replacing the windows with retrofit double glazing in order to get more light and refreshed ambient, think like an adult, not a teenager.

Forget about worries

Worries are only causing you to get older faster, so forget about them for a while and live just for the moment. Why wouldn’t you do the first silly thing which comes to your mind? Paragliding – why not? If you think out, it’s better to pay for adventure which will realize your dreams and bring the joy into your life, than gambling the money in the casino – although even that has certain charms, as long as you’re not overdoing it.

Even though it was said so many times before, but regardless how many years you have- remember that life is short and it’s never too late to live it to the fullest even if it means reviving your teenage self.

Run in your Stocking?

 

It’s happened to the best of us. A small runner in a stocking can turn into a disaster on your legs.

Stop that run in it’s tracks!

Keep a small bottle of clear nail polish in your bag. (It has plenty of good purposes for other things, as well) tipsfromtia.com nail polish

At the first sign of a run; apply two coats over the run, right on your skin. This will stop the run from going any further.

Here’s a quick fix to remove it, and no washing is necessary. Take a dark towel so it doesn’t leave light colored fuzzy’s behind it you best bet. Wipe the white stain aggressively and it will disappear. It it still shows a little, you may need to add a little water to the towel.

Using your towel from your recent shower seems to work the best since it has a dampness to it already.

Cancer Prevention Tips

Cancer Prevention Tips

Last night, I participated in Relay for Life, to support the American Cancer Society. I was a guest bartender, slinging drinks to help the cause. I donated a Tips from Tia gift package. Along with the cool swag, some lucky winner got the following tips on how to help with cancer prevention.

Science has shown over 90% of cancers are linked to an over population to yeast in the body. Yeast and Bacteria live harmoniously in the body, but sometimes one will over populate, and you can get a bacterial infection or yeast infection. Cancer cells already live in our body, without a blood supply. Certain factors allow the cells to get a blood source to live and grow. This is what happens when one develops cancer. The best fight against cancer is prevention.

Cancer Prevention Tips

  • Maintain regular exams: Scheduling yearly exams is the best prevention to cancers. Also, self-exams are a great way to make sure nothing has changed. If you are unsure how to give a self-exam, ask your doctor for the best ways.

 

  • Get proper vaccinations to prevent cancers. Ask your doctor about Hepatitis B and HPV vaccinations.

 

  • Practice Safe Sex: Using a condom for intercourse and oral sex can reduce and prevent certain cancers.

tipsfromtia.com stop smoking

  • Avoid over use of substances: Limit your intake to tobacco and alcohol. Over indulgence, on these substances, have been linked to causing certain cancers.

 

 

 

 

  • Limit your fat intake. Being overweight has increased chances of cancer.

 

  • Eat plenty of vegetables: Dark, leafy greens have shown plenty of benefits.

 

  • Eat strawberries. Studies have shown something in strawberries, other than, vitamin C, has abilities to fight cancer cells.

 

  • Get plenty of Vitamin C.

  • Add Olives into your diet. With olive oil, olives themselves or a supplement is a good source, to get olives into your diet.

 

  • Add Cloves into your diet. Either cooking with cloves or an essential oil and making clove water, with only 2 drops in 8 ounces of water and drinking, can help with prevention. (Caution, clove oil is extremely potent and can burn the skin; oil must be diluted with water or a carrier oil, before applying on skin or ingesting.)

 

  • Protect yourself from the sun. Use a high SPF. Apply 30 minutes before entering the sun, and apply repeatedly throughout the day, even on cloudy days.

 

  • Watch sugar intake. That means overall. Not by replacing sure with sweetners. Everything breaks down into sugar in the body. Sugar feeds yeast. If there is an over population of yeast starting in the body, the sugars you ingest will make yeast populate more.

Here’s wishing you and yours the best health! Thanks, again for your support with Relay for Life!

Stopping the Start of a Yeast Infection. (MA)

By Tia Cristy

Stopping the Start of a Yeast Infection. (MA) 

Tipsfromtia.com olive oil condiment vegeterian food

Problem: Hi Tia! I’m starting to get that feeling like a yeast infection is coming on. Is there something natural to stop it?

Tip from Tia: Yeast infections can happen to anyone, female or male. And, they can happen anywhere in or outside the body. (If you have a full infection, be sure to contact your doctor to determine if it’s yeast or bacteria and discuss treatments)

The best thing I can tell you first and most important, is watch your sugar intake. Yeast feeds on sugar and multiplies very quickly. Be sure to drink plenty of water, eat lots of dark green veggies, like broccoli and make sure you dry the areas completely before putting on clothes.

Remember, yeast and bacterial infections can be passed back and fourth, repeatedly through intercourse. It’s best to wait for the symptoms to clear before engaging in sex.

Now, for balancing out your body naturally, choose one of the following options. Doing too many things at the same time, can sway your chemistry the other way.

For yeast, olive leaf extract is great. It is an herbal, and you can take orally, 1-2 a day for about 5 days, and it will push out any kind of infection brewing.

If you are unsure of yeast or bacteria, it’s safest to take what balances both. Apple cider vinegar is a good way to balance naturally. Take a teaspoon orally, daily. Using it everyday can keep you balanced and has many other healthy benefits.

And, another remedy if you are unsure and it is affecting your lower areas is, make a very shallow bath, climb in, while sitting add peroxide in front of you. Sit in tub for 5-10 minutes. (Douches and washes can cause more unbalance, so I don’t recommend them at all.)

I believe natural balance starts from the inside with diet. Some environments can cause infections. If you’ve had reoccurring infections be sure to talk to your doctor.

Balance can be hard to control. With infections, you should always contact your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Earning a college degree is one of the most important things you can do. A degree helps open doors for you both personally and professionally. College isn’t cheap, so you can be sure that you’re getting the most for your investment of time and money by keeping these tips in mind.

Choose Your Field of Study Carefully

You’ll make a lot of important decisions during your college years, and choosing your major is one of the most important. However, you don’t need to feel pressured to select a major on the first day of your freshman year. Instead, spend some time researching and setting your ultimate career goals. If you know that the field you want to enter requires a masters degree in civil engineering, you can plan your course of study accordingly.

Stick with Your Budget

Many students leave college with a staggering amount of debt. One of the best things you can do to set yourself up for the future is to set a budget and stick with it. Even if you need to take out student loans, look for other forms of financing, such as grants and scholarships, to keep your amount of debt as low as possible.

Develop Your Interests

In most cases, your future employers want to see more than just a good student. They want to know that you are a well-rounded individual who can thrive in a variety of situations. College is the perfect time to develop your interests. Whether you love sports, music, art or something else, take the time to study what you love, even if it’s not something that will ultimately end up on your transcript.

Focus on Relationships

When you are busy with classes and homework, it’s easy to stay isolated. However, you’ll miss out on a great college experience if you don’t develop new relationships. Get to know your roommates, talk to your professors or ask the other students in your class to join you for a late-night study session. True friendships are something that will stick with you long after graduation.

Remember Your Why

Even the best students have down days during college. When your homework is piling up and your schedule is already full, it’s important to remember your why. Why did you choose to come to college? Why are you working so hard? When you keep your ultimate goals in mind, it’s easier to trudge through the hard days and keep striving toward the prize.

When you complete college, you want to know that you’ve done everything possible to get the most from your experience. By keeping these tips in mind, you can grow as a person while you are earning your degree.

Date Night Should Be Rip Roaring Excitement. Stupid Tip of the Day:

By Tia Cristy

Stupid Tip of the Day: Date Night Should Be Rip Roaring Excitement.
tipsfromtia.com Kissing

Date nights are important from the first date through  those years there after, deciding to spend eternity. Date nights are how couples continue to have magic. Re-bonding over and over again. And, even if you’ve been together for decades, the date nights don’t have to get over the top exciting to still achieve connecting. They just have to be had.

Studies have shown the best way to bond is over food. Some say that’s a path of over indulging, but that’s not the case. Trying new foods or snacking while chatting is a great way to bond. Feeling distance in a relationship? Go out to eat, somewhere new.

Successful relationships have also admitted that date night, always ends with a make out session, even if it doesn’t end with a “home run”. A 5 minute make out session with your spouse or significant other, helps in keeping that spark, ignited.

Sex and “Small” Infections. (MA)

By Tia Cristy

Sex and “Small” Infections.
tipsfromtia.com sex

Problem: A friend and I were talking about yeast infections and she said my boyfriend can get it from me, if I have one. Is that true? And is it a big deal?

Tip from Tia:

Truth be told, no transmitting infection should be considered small; any infection can flourish into a bigger problem. The “small” infections are known to be yeast infections or bacterial infections (BV). These infections can be transmitted sexually.

If you or your partner, is currently suffering from one of these “small” infections, it’s best not to engage in intercourse, until the infection has cleared.

Even engaging in protected sex, can still allow these infections to be transmitted, since they can infect the skin, topically.

If you think you’ve had sex, while having an infection, be sure to inform your partner. Like “they” say, if you’re responsible enough to have sex, you’re responsible enough to talk to your partner about sexual health.

Seek medical attention, if you have symptoms of itching, burning, odor and/or discharge.

A quick tip to remember is, if you have recently gotten over an infection and you have sex, wiping up with hydrogen peroxide after, can help both you and your partner from reinfection. But, be advised, don’t use too much peroxide, frequently, because this can cause changes in your body’s natural balance.
