Health and Beauty Tip -- Buy Extra

If you find black slacks or skirts that you like, buy an extra pair. Black fades quickly, but having an extra will keep your favorite clothes from wearing out too quickly.

The average, healthy, well-adjusted adult gets up at seven-thirty in the morning feeling just plain terrible.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Coloring Your Hair

Don't wash your hair immediately before applying color. Your hair needs that natural oil to protect your scalp from the dye, and it also helps the hair shaft absorb the color more easily.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Taking Care of Bras

Storing your bras incorrectly may cause the underwires to poke out after just a few wearings. To keep them from getting twisted, store your bras on a hook in your closet, rather than in a dresser drawer.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Good Scents

When bringing out clothes that have been in storage for awhile, try using lightly-scented water when ironing. Add some to your iron and, using the steam setting, brush it gently over your clothing. Lavendar water is a good one to use, but try any subtle scent you like.

Make your legs look longer and slimmer by matching your hose as closely as possibly to your skirt and shoes. For two-toned shoes, wear a neutral color, or try to match the lightest color in the shoes -- never wear hose darker than this!

To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Dress Monochrome

Health and Beauty Tip -- Face-Slimming Hairstyles

For most people, a shoulder-length cut makes the face appear slimmer -- avoid hair that is too long or too short. Use layers instead of straight lines to give your hair more body, and consider highlights in vertical sweeps. Of course, it's always best to ask your stylist's opinion!

The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Simple Ways to Stay in Shape

You don't have to sign up for a special class or take up a new sport to stay in shape -- just keep moving!
