Over the years when I've been at the bottom of my priority list or not on it all (because life happens), I have found that taking a weekend for myself to de-stress and refocus on me is the perfect jump start to getting back on my self care daily practice, especially after a stressful time. Of course you don't have to do it just on the weekend - if two days during the week work best for you, that works too!
Skincare and makeup can be a very overwhelming experience for some women, not to mention expensive if you keep buying the wrong products! So, let's chat about one of my favorite skincare products.
No … I’m not talking about sexting your girlfriends ;) I’m talking about opening up and being vulnerable with your girls … and in the process finding out that you’re not alone, that you’re not strange or weird or unusual. You’ll likely find out that you are like a LOT of women … women who are afraid to admit that they have questions or fears or insecurities, when it comes to talking about SEX!
For those of us over the age of 50 or even 40+, were probably raised to think of sex as more of an obligation, something to keep our men happy, or as a means to procreate. Talking about sex was taboo and something you just don’t do. Well guess what??? That’s total bullshit!! Women have JUST as much right as men to do, to fully enjoy a fabulous sex life!! And talking about sex is how you learn about it. It also helps you understand your lady parts and identify what is happening down there that may be a concern.
Some questions to get the conversation going with your gal pals: What does a great sex life mean to you? Have you actually given it any thought? What do you enjoy doing? What do you enjoy having done to you? Do you masturbate? Do you use vibrators or dildos or other toys? Are you single or do you have a partner or multiple partners? Yup, I went there.
June brings with it the beginning of a new season - ahhh Summer! A time when we ease up on structure and slip into a slower, more relaxed pace. Jennifer is sharing the angel messages that she received for our Reslientista readers.
Summer is here and while the warm weather and longer hours of daylight can revive and rejuvenate your spirits, you can often get lost in the enjoyment of the beautiful days to the point that your daily tasks become neglected. Summer has a tendency to become unstructured while life has a tendency to keep moving forward at the same pace that it always has. You can easily get lost in this lack of structure and find yourself overwhelmed with a list of incomplete tasks that need doing. If this happens and the responsibilities of life begin to pile up on you, unnecessary stress can be the result. As you know, stress does terrible things to your body. In an effort to keep stress at a minimum so you can enjoy your summer days without losing focus on living, here are four tips that will help you deal with the unstructured days of summer.
Summer is upon us, finally, it seemed like winter just didn’t want to let go this year. Now is the time to celebrate cooling foods and start to break into the seasonal fruits and veggies. I still recommend a good green smoothie, year round, but now you can start to reduce the heat in the ginger etc. and start to add in more cooling herbs and spices to cool down the body.Raw foods are more cooling to the body so think cucumber, radish, spinach and kale for example.

Sex and the City fans, will recall that moment Carrie and Mr. Big interacted for the first time, as he picked up her condoms from the NYC sidewalk. Had her goodies been secure in a "on the go sex pouch" in her handbag, the awkward moment may have been avoided.
