Health and Beauty Tip -- Eating Before Bed

Contrary to popular belief, snacks eaten before bed don't turn straight into fat! As long as the calorie intake fits into your diet plan, you can have something to eat before bed -- the calories will be burned off the next day, and even while you sleep.

I believe the second half of one's life is meant to be better than the first half. The first half is finding out how you do it. And the second half is enjoying it.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Choosing the Right Brush

The type of hair brush (or comb) you use has a big influence on your hair. If you have short hair, try a short brush with soft, protective bristles.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Air-Drying Your Hair

Every once in awhile, air-drying your hair can be good for it -- as long as you do it right. Make sure you use an absorbent towel to speed up drying time, and blot your hair gently instead of rubbing it (rubbing can cause frizziness and split ends). For extra volume and waves, pull your hair back with large clips until it dries.
