Unconventional Beauty Tricks That Really Work post image

Even though I could literally open a store with the amount of makeup and beauty products in my possession, my latest obsession has been finding beauty solutions in unlikely places…like the kitchen and medicine cabinet.

It started a few weeks ago when someone told me that Pepto-Bismol works wonders when it comes to clearing up breakouts. I thought it sounded ridiculous, but I was curious enough to give to a try and was astounded by the results (more on that later). This little experiment got me wondering what other unconventional beauty tricks I could try.

I make a concerted effort to live a healthy and natural life. I try to avoid eating anything that comes out of a bag or box, am mindful about the ingredients in products I use (I also have to be because my skin is super sensitive), so was really drawn to the idea of using natural ingredients to solve my beauty issues.

Through my research, I discovered that the best beauty products aren’t always found in the beauty aisle and I was amazed by how dramatically these little tricks of the trade worked. Since I started experimenting with natural beauty concoctions, I can’t go anywhere without someone asking me my skincare secrets (and it’s been pretty funny seeing their reaction when I tell them!).

And here they are:

When to Have Sex With a Guy post image

When to Have Sex With a Guy


Many years ago, a guy friend said something that completely changed the way I viewed sex and relationships. He said: “Before a girl sleeps with a guy, she has all the power. Afterward, he has all the power.” I’ve told this to countless friends, both male and female, over the years and have been met with a resounding: “That is so true!.” You can choose to agree or disagree, but there’s no denying that sleeping with a guy has a significant impact on the relationship and can either deepen it or turn it into a physical thing without an emotional leg to stand on.

Most men want sex and most women want a commitment. That’s not to say men don’t want commitment, they do, it’s just not the driving force behind their behavior, getting a lot of sex is. You can blame it on biology and a man’s innate need to spread his seed, or on today’s culture which deems men who sleep with lots of women studs (and women who sleep with lots of men sluts), but it’s just the way it is. As such, women have control when it comes to sex and can decide whether to give in or not, while men have the control when it comes to commitment. [Click here to keep reading...]

Ask a Guy: My Boyfriend Doesn’t Want to Have Sex With Me post image

I’ve been in an open relationship for the past two years and lately my boyfriend seems to have lost interest in sex. He is always saying he is too tired or busy. I try to be patient and understanding because we both have stressful jobs, but it has been two months. Whenever I bring up the topic he accuses me of only wanting sex as if that is the only thing that would make me happy. He still tells me he loves me and we still hang out, but I always feel miserable in the end. I don’t know what to do anymore, why isn’t he sexually attracted to me like he used to be and how do I fix it?

How to Have “The Talk” to Define Your Relationship post image

The first time I had “the talk” turned into more of a ridiculous display of exactly what not to do. I was in college and had been seeing this guy for a little over a month and had never felt so strongly for someone else, ever. We spent a ton of time together and I figured we were heading toward being “official” but it wasn’t a pressing matter on my mind, it just lingered in the depths.

That all changed one night when I introduced him to my friends for the first time. The night started out great, we had some drinks and went to a bar with some of his friends. But it all took a turn when me and my friends went to the bathroom to fix our faces and they started getting in my ear about how strange it was that he and I weren’t official yet, and what a bad sign that was. In addition to a fresh coat of powder and gloss, I left the bathroom with a giant chip on my shoulder.
