Common Errors Couples Make Which Ends Up Leading To Splitsville!

It’s a sad fact that over half of couples who tie the knot end up getting divorced. It’s more common than ever for extended families with step brothers and sisters being an everyday thing.

Not spending much time together

It’s so easy to both get involved with work and then wonder when was the last time you spend time together. After all, we spend more time at the workplace than we do at home so it’s hard to see each other. But if you both are doing other things when you get home such as seeing friends, it will cause trouble in a relationship. It’s so important to spend time together so that you can keep the love alive. Therefore, arrange with your other half a date night at least once a week where you can both spend time together and remember why you love each other.

You both put things before your relationship

A lot of couples end up heading to splitsville because one or both of them put things before their relationships. It often is a family member or friend who often comes first before the relationship. For example, if you have arranged an evening in and then you decide to see your parents instead, it will cause resentment. The same goes with work; putting it before your relationship can often lead to terrible arguments. Divorce solicitors can often end up being called in these cases! Therefore, always consider your partner’s feelings and remember they are just as important as the other things in your life.

Taking each other for granted

With friends, we tend to make the effort to see them regularly and meet up to do things. But with your partner, you know they are at home so it’s easy to take them for granted. You think you will spend a different night with them as they are going to be there. However, it can often end up leaving to resentment if you are taking each other for granted. Therefore, you need to make an effort to make them feel special and ask them how they are feeling. Don’t ever be dismissive if one of you has gone the extra mile to do something for the other. After all, it’s so easy to focus on what they have done wrong than right! That way, you both will feel appreciated in the relationship and won’t seek support and affection elsewhere!

Arguing over silly things

If you have lived with a partner before, you would have had the argument between couples over the toilet seat! After all, it is annoying when guys leave it up! However, these arguments over chores can often end up causing lots of rows between couples. In fact, arguing over silly things can cause a rift between a married couple. Therefore, think twice before you start arguing over silly things. Try and put these things in perspective before starting a row!

Also, don’t make the mistake of not talking about the future before making a commitment. You need to make sure you are both on the same path in regards to kids and home location!

Be a Blushing Bride- Not a Self Conscious One!

Be a Blushing Bride- Not a Self Conscious One!

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your entire life- and when all eyes are on you, it’s natural to want to look your best. The last thing you want to do is spend the day feeling self-conscious, or look back at your wedding photos in a few years and regret the fact that you didn’t like how you looked. Here are a few of the ways you can make sure you’re the perfect blushing bride on your big day.

Body

A huge proportion of brides lose some weight before their big day. Reaching a weight you’re happy and comfortable at means you’re more likely to love how you look in your dress. Don’t aim for anything unrealistic, be aware that healthy weight loss is just one to two pounds a week. So if you have a lot of weight that you plan on losing, starting as early on as possible is your best bet. If you’re already at your target weight, toning up could be the way to go. Specifically, your arms, back, and shoulders since these will be on display in most wedding dresses. If you are at a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat that you just can’t get rid of, you could even consider a cosmetic procedure. It could be a non-invasive body contouring technique such as fat freezing, or traditional liposuction. Make sure you check out healing times so you know you’ll be healed in plenty of time for the big day. A professional surgeon such as board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi would be able to give you the advice you needed.

Face

Of course, it’s important to take care of your skin at all times, but especially so in the run up to your wedding. Gorgeous, healthy and glowy skin will make you look like the most stunning bride. Consider booking in for a facial a few months before the wedding. There they will be able to diagnose your skin type and recommend products that work perfectly for you. Sticking to a good regime each day, and including weekly face masks that are targeted to your skin type will help to get it looking its very best. If you’re self-conscious about fine lines, treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion can help. Again just be aware of any healing time you’ll need after any procedures, so you’re ready in time for your wedding.

Teeth

On your wedding day, you’re sure to be grinning from ear to ear, after all- it’s one of the happiest days of your life! So a sparkling smile is one of your best accessories on the big day. You could consider veneers or teeth whitening treatments. These include trays from the dentist, laser teeth whitening or even over the counter teeth whitening kits that you can buy. Depending on how your teeth currently look and what vision you have in mind for your smile. Consider booking a dentist appointment in advance who will be able to give you advice.

Hair

Your hair is your crowning glory, and having lovely shining hair is a surefire way to look incredible on your wedding day. Having it cut and colored by a professional is your best option. Then you can go about maintaining it at home with oils and deep conditioning treatments. If you’ve always wanted long hair but struggle to grow yours, you could consider getting extensions.

Cosmetic Surgery Options And Why You Should Be Thinking Serious

Cosmetic Surgery Options And Why You Should Be Thinking Serious

Cosmetic surgery is something that is becoming more readily available to the mass market. Gone are the days that it was just for the rich and famous. It is why more women today are seeking solace with surgery methods instead of perhaps addressing the issues the good old fashioned way. Or even accepting themselves for who they are. It is, afterall, your body and what you choose to do is entirely up to yourself. With that in mind, I thought I would explore some of the most popular cosmetic surgery options available today. Providing reasons why you should be thinking serious about them.

Breast enlargement or reduction

Unfortunately, in today’s media, the way a woman should look is portrayed in a certain way. It doesn’t take into account that everybody is different. Breasts, in particular, are one area that many women want to improve on. For some it’s for medical reasons, for others, it’s purely cosmetic. Some women have larger breasts than the average. But what this can do is cause severe back ache down to the weight, and discomfort where the skin rubs together. A breast reduction can often be the only way to relieve these symptoms. Other women want to increase the size of the breast area for shape and how they look. While it is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries to take place, it is still worth remembering that research is needed. It will help you choose the right location and surgeon. There are still problems today with burst implants or botched surgery.

Laser eye surgery

Some people would have the opinion that laser eye surgery is not a cosmetic surgery, but in some cases it is. While it corrects a problem with eyesight, some people choose to do it for cosmetic reasons. Whether you are short or long sighted laser eye surgery could help improve how you see. However, with such a sensitive area being worked on, there are some situations where these procedures go wrong. Thankfully, with regulations in place people can make laser eye surgery claims. Eyesight is just one of those things we take for granted until it is gone that is. So it’s worth considering whether there is a real need for it, or if you could cope with spectacles.

Liposuction

Finally, when it comes to weight loss there are now surgeries you can undergo to help you shift the most stubborn of fats, and that is liposuction. It involves sucking out smaller areas of fat that can be hard to lose with exercise and a healthy balanced diet. It focuses on the areas where fat tends to reside such as the stomach, the thighs and the buttocks. The aim is to improve the body shape and make it easier to maintain the weight loss going forward. However, the results are not necessarily guaranteed. It tends to have the best results for people with a normal weight and in areas where the skin is tight.

I hope this has made your more informed of the most popular options for cosmetic surgery.

Tips for Not Making Mistakes During Divorce

Going through a divorce can be a real emotional roundhouse, especially when there’s no prenup. It’s difficult to think clearly during this period, so you can easily make some wrong decisions. There’s also a lot of anger involved that can translate into words and deeds, which can make your divorce costlier and lengthier. You can also just as easily forget to do something when filing for a divorce that can later make the whole process very frustrating. Here are a couple of tips that will help you avoid mistakes like these during your divorce.

Don’t Fail to Make Your Kids a Priority

Some parents want peace so badly that they start drifting away from their kids once they start going through a divorce. Keeping the peace is a good thing to do but that does not mean you or your ex-spouse should stay away from your kids. You should both respect each other’s time with the kids and never fight around them. They need stability and both parents in their lives. Still, time spent isn’t the only determining factor, but the quality of that time is. Talk to your former spouse and try to come up with an arrangement that is going to suit both of you as well as the kids.

Don’t Overextend Yourself Financially

Your divorce is going to change the way you live completely. That why you’ll have to make some adjustments and try to adapt. One of the things that is going to change quite a lot are your finances. Two households are obviously more difficult to maintain than one, so some changes will have to be made. Because of this, experts recommend going through your finances before you file for divorce, and try to make a plan for the future. These experts are also there to help their clients who want to file for divorce in California with pre-divorce budgeting and planning process.

Don’t Forget What You Owe

When going through a divorce it’s also important to know exactly how much you owe. Promising “to have and to hold” can actually bounce back and bite you. There are some states in the USA where you’ll be responsible for half of your spouse’s debt, even in the case the debt isn’t in your name. Experts in those states advise their clients to get a full credit report so there are no surprises. In other states, you won’t be held responsible for such a debt but you’ll still be liable for any loans or jointly held credit cards. So, depending of the state you live in, you’ll be held responsible for different things.

Don’t Hold onto Properties

Depending on how many properties you and your spouse have, you’ll have to divide them properly once the divorce starts. It’s important to have the whole family in mind and try to come up with a solution that suits everybody the best. If you manage to do so, you can file for an uncontested divorce and make the whole situation easier for everyone. Even in that case you should get all the necessary help. For example if you live in Portland, there are experts who can advise you if you want to file for an uncontested divorce in Oregon. If you end up with a family house, think hard about keeping it because of the maintenance and taxes.

Divorces can be really devastating but if you plan carefully and avoid some common mistakes, you can save yourself a lot of trouble. Once the divorce is through, you can finally focus on moving on with your life.

Tips on Triggers: More Than a Weigh In.

Easier said then done, I know, but if you keep up with your regimen; other changes are still happening inside your body. And, within a few days to a few weeks the scale will start to move again, sometimes substantially.

Get Your Skin Ready for Sun. By Guest Blogger, Amy G.

Get Your Skin Ready for Sun

Every year we promise ourselves that we will prepare our bodies for the summer on time, and yet it always catches us unprepared. Although the summer is just around the corner, there is still time to get your skin glowing for the beach. Here are a few useful tips to get you started.

  1. Full Body Exfoliation
Provided by Guest Blogger Amy G.

No matter the season, regular exfoliation should be a part of your skin care routine. While we remember to take care of our face during winter, we often neglect our bodies because they are hidden under layers of clothes. If you have not done it yet, now is the time to exfoliate both your face AND your body. Unless your skin is too sensitive, dermatologists recommend exfoliating once or twice a week to achieve smooth and healthy-looking skin. But be careful – exfoliation is meant to remove only the surface, dead skin cells, without damaging the underlying new layer. Since body skin is a bit rougher, you can use brushes and exfoliating cloths or scrubs with coarse particles, like sugar. On the other hand, avoid using them on your face because they might cause irritation.

  1. Sunscreen as an Everyday Accessory

Freshly exfoliated skin is extremely susceptible to burning. This should be a reason enough to use sunscreen daily. If you are wearing makeup that contains sunscreen, that does not count. The SPF of beauty products is too low to provide an effective UV protection. But any broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 15 will be enough on a regular day. Make it at least 30 if you are heading to the beach. If you are wearing makeup, you should layer sunscreen under it. But remember that you will have to reapply the SPF about every two hours, so you might want to skip the whole makeup thing. Don’t forget that you should wear appropriate clothes to protect your skin in summer. The tighter the knit or weave, the smaller the holes and the less UV can get through. Also, if you have children, you get quality children clothes online that are made from quality fabrics to protect their skin in sunny days.

  1. Switch to Summer Skincare Products

Products that kept your skin feeling hydrated and comfortable during cold and dry winter months may leave it sticky and sweaty once the heat sets in. As the temperatures start to rise and the air becomes more humid, your skin begins to adjust by producing more oil. So, you need to adjust your skincare products accordingly. Pick products that contain lightweight ingredients, such as silicones and glycerine. They will hydrate your skin and leave a breathable barrier. If your skin is prone to breakouts, dab facial oil in dry spots and skip the rest of your face. You may be tempted to use harsh soaps in order to get squeaky clean skin, but this method can only backfire and cause your skin to produce even more oil. Instead, use a gentle facial cleanser such as rose water spray or a foaming face wash.

 

  1. Get Familiar with the New SPF Regulations

In 2012, the FDA adopted new regulations that redefined

sunscreens as we knew them. The term ‘sunblock’ came out of use because it cannot be scientifically proven that these products completely block sun radiation. New sunscreens are labelled only ‘broad-spectrum’ if they filter out both UVA and UVB rays. SPFs higher than 50 are also a thing of the past since the sky-high digits are not a guarantee of higher protective powers of sunscreen. A SPF 30 filters approximately 97 percent of UVB rays, and SPF 75 cannot be much more effective than that, can it?

 

With age, these tricks become less effective in providing us youthful-looking skin. This is when you should consider facial rejuvenation. We recommend laser clinics whose experts assure you that facial rejuvenation can improve the look of deep lines and prevent the occurrence of new ones.

Friends with Benefits or Just a Booty Call? (MA)

By Tia Cristy

 

Friends with Benefits or Just a Booty Call?

“Beautiful Women And Handsome Man” by alexisdc FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Beautiful Women And Handsome Man” by alexisdc
FreeDigitalPhotos.net

A recent debate ignites over the topic of is there a difference between Friends with Benefits (FWB) and a Booty Call? It appears that it can be taken subjectively by some individuals, but the truth is for most people there is a significant difference.

After tallying a poll between men and women, over a twenty year-old age gap, I found more men than women didn’t really see a difference until being provided with the definition for each. More women than men on the other hand, clearly knew the difference without further explanation.

I found the biggest difference between FWB and a Booty call is being ‘friends’. In today’s world, random sexual encounters are readily available through hookup sites, but to maintain a FWB relationship, one must actually, in fact, have a mutually respected relationship of some form; usually in the form of friends.

"Couple Standing at Back View" by imagerymajestic FreeDigitalPhotos.net
“Couple Standing at Back View” by imagerymajestic FreeDigitalPhotos.net

So, what’s the point of being FWB and not just dive into a respectful committed relationship? The only reason that seemed to hold any merit is because sex is a mature decision that should always be safe and made with a clear conscience, but nobody wants to get emotionally hurt, right? FWB is a way for some individuals to have mature companionship without a full-blown commitment. Does it make sense? Sure, if you want something steady without feeling locked-down. Unlike random hookups, FWB isn’t a lack of feelings; it actually appears to put feelings and a specific relationship into a different box than the stereotypical caring relationship.

Booty calls and hookups are designed to intentionally disconnect any kind of emotional feelings to where one is able to only partake in a specific physical act.  How many times have you said or heard someone say they have trouble committing? Here’s the ironic part, one must understand sex in itself is a commitment. There is no do-over’s or denial that it happened when it’s finished. It’s a commitment to your partner and to yourself that you have weighed the pros and cons of this physical activity to the fullest and you and both parties are willing to move forth with the act.

So, why does it seem that men are having trouble with the concept of FWB when they (probably) created it? Well, FWB seems to be falling into a grey area since apps have made it easy (and confusing to the ego) to find someone local looking for a casual night. On the other hand, women are more accepting of being FWB, nowadays, since the process of courting or dating is almost non-existent with an extreme all or nothing policy being presented on any given dating site. It’s been mentioned to me that women have found FWB to be an outlet without allowing society pressures to force a decision on ‘is this guy the one or not? ’ or dating sites wanting to know if you’re ready for a marriage or a fling.

It’s important to understand that psychological and physical health that can be impeded by a life full of a plethora of random encounters, but I get it, not everyone is ready to settle down with the first face they find attractive.  Without judgment, I say to each their own- in their own time, but when you are about to engage into any sexual experience, I recommend communicating with your potential partner to be certain which kind of relationship you are getting involved with before you commit in the act of sex, and then come to find out you and your partner are not on the same page. I also believe falling into bed too soon can turn a ‘friend’ into a Booty Call, instantly, if the friendship’s foundation hasn’t had proper time to solidify. (We’ve all heard, at one point in time, from a girlfriend about that guy that was so amazing and funny before they had sex and now she suffers from confusion over his disconnection.)

As a Sexual Heath Tips provider and promoter of safe sex, I will not preach against anyone’s protected sexcapades, but for one to believe sex has the ability to lack any feeling, emotionally, baffles me personally since a human being must use every single muscle group to partake in the act. Those muscles include the brain and the heart. Science has shown the ‘healthiest sex’ is the monogamous kind when it comes to overall physical and emotional health while having the ultimate power to strengthen overall brain function.

So, to wrap this up, (no pun intended)… Is there a difference between FWB and a Booty call? Yes. And it is up to you, the Mature, that feel you are grown up enough to have a physical partner, to decipher which experience you want to commit to. As Evan Marc Katz said, “Men look for sex and find love. Women look for love and find sex.” Although sex feels good, when you find that one partner that is everything you could never imagine existing in one person…well …that feels amazing.

Top ways for getting rid of the useless objects during furniture removals. By Guest Blogger Heather R.

Top ways for getting rid of the useless objects during furniture removals

Always after furniture removals or just after a short relocation for the big holidays – there are plenty of useless stuff to get rid of. Take a look at some common ways to do it and some basic steps that you should go through before and after every relocation.

1) Selling old or useless things in newspapers or in some of the greatest online selling platforms. This is the easy way, because you don`t have to leave your home. However, the main disadvantage is that it often requires a lot of time to find the buyer, so you have to do it at least a month before the move. This will give you plenty of time to check out all your possessions and to decide wisely what you really want to take with yourself and what you want to sell.

2) Donate to charity. A cheap and easy way to get rid of the old objects that you don`t want to take with yourself in the new house only to see that you will never use them. There are plenty of things that are suitable for donation, especially the ones in a good condition that you yet don`t want to throw away as a disposal of waste. The donation also adds benefits to your image and to your personality.

3) Donate to friends, neighbors or to second-hand stores. This is one of the best ways to get rid of clothes and shoes, which is usually the main issue after rearranging the wardrobes for furniture removals. It may not be that profitable, than selling online, but it is a much quicker and easier way compared to the online selling platforms.

4) Use recycling services. First, you have to know where is located the nearest recycling center and whether they can recycle the furnishings that you want to get rid of. Some furnishings from natural wood are suitable, while others have to be one – dismantled, and two – with unplugged metal components. Another great opt is to ask your furniture removals company whether they offer recycling services, which can definitely save you time and efforts.

5) Disposal of waste. You can always get rid of the old, bent and broken pieces of furniture by yourself. Although it might be quite a difficult task to handle the big heavy objects, it is often a must-do when moving house.

The main steps that you should go through before making a decision what to do with the useless things, include several highlights to remember. They will make everything easier and quicker, which is a very essential thing when moving furniture or during office removals. Let`s get started with a thorough inspection of your house and make a checklist. Note the items that you really want to take to the new house and thus you will see the exact useless objects. Then, make some basic sorting and de-cluttering to organize everything by some criteria – for example, by the size or by the shape of the object, or by the type of the wooden materials. Take your free time and do it justly while still in the old house. It will save you plenty of time and money if you do it twice, not to mention the efforts for carrying useless objects only to see that you want to get rid of them while unloading the van after the relocation.

Perfect beauty routine for a perfect summer

Nothing can be achieved without some effort and relatively hard work. The same goes for beauty. If you want to shine like the sun during summer and feel confident in your own skin, it is time to take the matter in your own hands and start loving your body enough to make it ready for the hot summer days. Think of a beauty routine that would work the best for you, stick to it and welcome summer without fear and worry to show your skin.

Fitness and diet

Before you start thinking about many different creams and lotions you can buy hoping that they would make you beautiful, you have to work on your looks from the inside as well. Start eating better. Change up your diet so that you can include seasonal fruits and veggies that are full of vitamins and make the skin healthier. Also, cut the fatty and high-calorie foods. These can only make you feel bloated and tired while there is a possibility of gaining weight as well. Moreover, find the time to exercise every day. You do not have to go big from the start. Simple exercises in the beginning for 15 to 20 minutes a day will be just enough to firm your skin and make your joints more flexible.

Remove dead skin cells

Every once in a while you need to exfoliate your body and face. This will help you get rid of dead skin cells meaning that your skin will become smoother, it will absorb products from creams and lotions better and the scrubbing movements will boost the blood circulation which will result in a more radiant skin tone and minimized body cellulite. It is important not to overdo this step since it can also damage the skin and make it more sensitive and irritated. Once or twice a week is just enough.

Always wear a sunscreen

Red, patchy and sun burnt skin is not only unpleasant to the eye but it is also very unhealthy. Therefore make sure to always wear a sunscreen when you go out in the summer. Choose a perfect sunscreen for your face and skin type as well as one for the whole body. It will protect you from harmful sun rays while at the same time provide conditions for even and healthy tanning.

Stay away from alcohol

Saying that you should stay away from alcohol does not mean that you are not allowed to relax with a cool cocktail on a hot summer evening. Actually, this refers to alcohol found in different body lotions and especially perfumes and body mists. During the day, under the influence of sun, places on your skin sprayed with alcohol can become stained so make sure to avoid perfumes during the day and check the ingredient list for other products you use.

Face care

Make sure that your face is well hydrated. Applying a moisturizer before makeup is advisable if you want to avoid patchiness and dry skin. For example, vitamin C serum is a great choice for many skin types since it is absorbed quickly, does not leave a greasy residue on the surface and also protects the skin from pigmentation spots. Moreover, opt for waterproof makeup and do not go overboard with application. A BB cream, concealer, setting powder and waterproof mascara is basically all you need but you can also spice things up with some color according to your own tastes.

With summer just around the corner there is no time to lose. Start taking care of yourself properly and once you feel the joy of being satisfied with your fresh and fit summer look you will probably adopt this kind of healthy lifestyle throughout the year. Why look great only for a season when you can be fabulous all the time?
