How much is too much? Any more than four cups of caffeinated coffee each day can lead to bladder irritation. The same amount of caffeine in chocolate, caffeinated tea, or cola can do the same thing, so watch your intake!
Studies are showing that green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collards are beneficial to your body's ability to keep itself healthy. The high amounts of vitamin E in each help fight chemicals produced by the body that can damage cells. But any kind of vegetable is helpful -- people who eat more than two servings of vegetables per day ...Read more
Kindness in women, not their beauteous looks, shall win my love.
If you take a vitamin C supplement, make sure to take it earlier in the day. Taking vitamin c late at night can actually contribute to sleeplessness.
Dry, cold weather can cause dead skin cells to build up. Even if you don't usually use an exfoliator, now's a good time to start. You can also use a puff or a loofah. Use moisturizer afterwards to keep your skin soft.
There are still a lot of women suffering in the world, and we don't see it so much because we live in a privileged society.
Choose accessories that complement your winter coat. Heavy down parkas look great with knits, like striped scarves and ski caps. Pea coats are especially flattering with a cream-colored skull cap and mittens, and shaped wool coats go best with "girly" accessories like berets and cashmere scarves in pastels.
The beauty of women was the first expression of my photography.
An Act of WarMichael K. McMahan
When Lt. Travis Kelly kills a North Vietnamese officer near the Cambodian border in 1969, he tries hard to put the incident--and the rest of the Vietnam War--behind him. But like so many of Travis's experience in the war, this one comes continues to haunt him decades ...
Cream, under-eye treatment, moisturizing lotion, or almost any such product works best at night, so apply it right before going to bed. If you use a lotion or moisturizer on your face, it's a good idea to use it on your neck and arms, too.
I think that it's true; more women writers make a good living out of writing... whether they are married or single.
Bedtime is the most important time to wash your face, to get rid of any dirt you've picked up during the day. Use circular motions when you scrub, and wash with cold water. Walnut scrub is great for oily skin, and dry of sensitive skin benefits from baby oil or wet cleansing pads afterwards.
I'd love to see more women working as directors and producers.
Red lipstick can look good on anyone -- if you find the right red. If you have red or pinkish undertones, go with a cool red with a pinkish or bluish undertone, or even a pure red -- but no orange-based reds! Only use those, or peach-toned reds, if your skin has yellow undertones. If you have olive skin, go for a pure red. Any skin tone is ...Read more
Women play very important roles in real life situations in every walk of life, including security and the military.
If you're the type who likes to have everything on hand, make your next purse a lightweight one with rolled or thick straps. Thin straps are uncomfortable to carry when your purse is heavy, and are better suited for women who don't carry much in their bags.
Get more women producers, writers, directors. Why should we expect men to do it for us? They can't.
If you need to fix up your lipstick but can't find a mirror, try this: using one finger from your free hand as a guide, position the tip of your lipstick at the center of the "bow" of your mouth. Tracing the edge of your lips with that finger, draw a half-heart shape from the center to the edge of your mouth on both sides. Then, using that ...Read more
When you put ten or eleven women of the older generation together, the biggest subject is sex.
If you don't have time to do your nails, try this: remove any nail polish, soak your nails in lemon juice to get rid of stains, then use a nail buffer for a quick shine.
The extension of women's rights is the basic principle of all social progress.
