Elope Dress!?

23 Feb

If you’re like me and LOVE Vegas and the idea of eloping and avoiding a wedding circus…then you’ll fall in love with the Elope Dress! The idea is such a no-brainer and a total win.

At just $170 this dress does it all: it’s white and feminine, short without being too short, easily customizeable, and has a touch of sass! It comes in a few different sizes but unfortunately not plus size (yet).


Foods That Put You OUT Of The Mood!

30 Mar

Yesterday was all about how to get in the mood, and today there is a list of foods and activities that can lower your libido!

WHITE BREAD: Eating too much white bread and other refined carbohydrates can sap your sex drive. Foods such as white bread release the sugar more quickly than their wholegrain counterparts — and too much sugar is associated with energy slumps, which mean you won’t have the energy for sex.

COLD & FLU REMEDIES: Over-the-counter cold and flu remedies are well-known libido dampeners. Those that contain diphenhydramine or pseudoephedrine not only affect your sex drive but can cause erectile dysfunction.

TONIC WATER: Quinine, the ingredient which gives tonic water its unique flavor, may affect libido. Scientists at the University of Lagos in Nigeria found that quinine was a ‘testicular toxicant’ and lowered the levels of testosterone in rats. In a separate study, they found it also significantly lowered sperm concentration and motility.

LOSING WEIGHT TOO QUICKLY: Many women try to get thin so they are more attractive, but the irony is it can kill their sex life and defeat the point of trying to be thin in the first place. Losing weight too fast can disturb the hormones and even affect fertility.

TRYING FOR A BABY: Love-making becomes pressured and mechanical, and many men have performance anxiety. It soon goes away if you try to relax about ovulation times.’

Birth-Order and Relationships

8 Feb

Thought this was interesting since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. A new book from psychologist Linda Blair, “Birth Order: What Your Position In The Family Really Tells You About Your Character,” says that many relationships fail or succeed based on what order both mates were born. And, some birth orders are more compatible than others. Check out some of the findings:

What Works

First-born with last-born: Opposites really do attract! First-borns are nurturers and caretakers, and last-borns often need to be cared for, so this match finds its perfect opposite.

Only child with last-born: This is a good match because last-borns tend to inspire creativity and freedom in only children.

Middle child and first-born: If you’re with a middle child, you’ve hit the jackpot. Middle children tend to be able to get along with both first-borns and last-borns. But any pairing does still require that both partners respect who the other is. An overbearing first-born should be on her best behavior around a more docile and malleable middle child.

Two last-borns: A couple comprised of two last-borns can be a great creative match. But they should be careful of being too impulsive of immature with one another.

Two middle children: Middle children are a good match because of their combined diplomacy and desire to please, but they should be careful of being too deferential to each other.

Middle child and last-born: A great match because middle children aim to please and will support a last-born’s desires to pursue their dreams.

Middle child with only child: Only children like to take charge and middle children are only too happy to have someone else take the reigns.

What Doesn’t Work

Two first-borns: Conflict is likely if you’re highly competitive and both want to be in charge. It can work if you can channel your competitive drives outside of the relationship.

First-born and only child: Ditto for this pairing, which may exhibit many of the negative characteristics of a first-born match.

Two only children: This may not be the best match, because you’re both used to getting what you want.

A good dog is hard to find…

26 Jan

I LOVE my dog Romeo and I LOVE my boyfriend, but I don’t know if I could choose between the two when it came down to it!

Seriously, look how cute my two boys are! Too CUTE!

An AP-Petside survey asked if you had to dump your partner or your pet, which would it be?  1 out of 7 people (14%) would choose their pet over their significant other…WOW!

We took some calls and text messages about this on the show this morning, and quite a few said they would choose the pet over their wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend! One caller said she dumped her husband of 23 years for her horses, and I got a Facebook message saying a good dog is hard to find, but women come a dime a dozen.
