10 Truths About Dating

Truth #1
You'll regret that "Just wanted to make sure you got my last message" follow-up to an e-mail, text, or voicemail.

Truth #2
If you don't feel comfortable having a conversation with a guy about sex — especially condoms — you shouldn't be getting busy with him.

Truth #3
If a man breaks up with you out of the blue, the out-of-the-blue part is really only on your end.

Truth #4
Just as it's best to wait to drop the L-bomb until your man does, let a guy change his Facebook status to "in a relationship" before you do.

Truth #5
No woman in a healthy long-term relationship has ever said, "Gee, I really wish I'd slept with my man sooner."

Truth #6
Keeping a change of clothes at work in case of an emergency walk of shame isn't optimistic's career-savvy.

Truth #7
When a guy repeatedly refers to his exes as "crazy," "psycho," or "sluts," he will use those same words against you one day.

Truth #8
If a relationship feels like too much work after the first month, it'll be 10 times harder a year from now.

Truth #9
A guy who rates you or other girls as a number from 1 to 10 is a loser, even if he gives you a 10. You're a woman, not county fair livestock.

Truth #10
A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man who brags about his money. Either way, he ain't got it. The kind of man you want to be with knows that actions speak louder than words. And thankfully, there are plenty of those types out there!

Add Luster to Locks

Found in January's issue of Fitness Magazine.

"Brushing heat styling and coloring cause the hair cuticle to lift and reflect less light. Kim Vo, a stylist in Los Angles, suggests mixing a palm-size amount of deep conditioner, a shot glass of vodka and five drops of your favorite essential oil. "The alcohol lowers the hair's pH, encouraging the cuticle to close, while the oil offers instant shine," he says. Comb the mixture through dry hair (water-logged strands soak up less of the ingredients) and rinse after 20 minutes."

I'm defiantly going to try this one...I have never thought of using a shot of Vodka in my hair. Hey if you have had a stressful day pour two shots of Vodka, one for your hair for shine and one for yourself to de-stress :)

Eat your way to GORGEOUS

Taken from January's issue of Fitness magazine.

" Before reaching for that cookie, chew on this: For every single gram of refined carbohydrates (think sugary desserts and white breads and pastas) that we consume, our bodies retain 2.7 grams of water, says Jeffery Morrison, M.D., a nutrition specialist in New York City. Short term, that can mean a bloated belly and puffy eyes, but over time you'll notice flaky skin, brittle hair and chipped nails. "That's because refined carbs contain no moisturizing fatty acids or protective antioxidants," Dr. Morssion explains. He suggests eating two one-cup servings of antioxidant-rich fruits (blueberries are a great source) a day and two five ounce servings of fish (wild salmon and Atlantic mackerel are two of the healthiest choices) per week.
