Self Care During an Emotional Crisis

It happens to the best of us; you’re hit with something you never thought you’d have to deal with, even if you knew that you’d have to deal with it. This can be the death of a parent, spouse, or close friend; a breakup, a job loss, the demise of a pet, or just an accumulation of all the stuff that’s wrong with the world that settles directly onto your shoulders. The result is crippling

Cannabis for Menopause

Many women consider “the change,” also known as menopause, to mean a loss of femininity or sexuality. It’s the opposite. Menopause is a chapter that no woman can avoid, and it’s normal to dread it, especially with the ageist stigma surrounding it. Many women feel like when they get older, they become invisible to society. But instead of our womanhood fading away, it’s a reminder that you’re a champion. It’s an empowering new token of

Nip Tuck and Needle

Nip, Tuck And The Needle

As a well-known makeup artist and beauty author, I’ve received numerous requests to write an article regarding nip, tuck, and the needle. Let me begin by stating that I wholeheartedly endorse plastic surgery and injections, provided they are kept in perspective. Without mentioning names, we all know who has gone overboard.

Am I Too Old to Have My First Bisexual Experience?

You know, they say that as we women age, we tend to hit our prime. Yep, that’s right… hitting fifty is like getting the winning ticket to regain your youth. No, sex won’t make you younger, but it sure keeps your heart ticking. Some of us assume that when we hit our prime at fifty and sex becomes a large part of our life again, that it is strictly between a man and woman. This

My Journey with Social Anxiety

My Journey with Social Anxiety

I can pinpoint the exact day my social anxiety began. One day, in pre-school, a teacher’s assistant was measuring each student’s height for an in-class project. Once she measured me, she blurted out, “Wow, you’re a big gal!” The other kids laughed, and I immediately felt my face burn, and my hands shake. I lowered my head so I wouldn’t make eye contact with my classmates, and for the rest of the day, hoping that

I Want to be Thinner

Girls and women alike have been sold a bill of goods. We are nearly force-fed daily doses of propaganda that whispers in our ears, “Want to know how to make guys want you? Easy – lose weight!” When we take in this propaganda without filtering it first for both suitability and truthfulness, we get two messages – “guys want thin women” and “getting guys to want you is the most important goal”. While neither of
