  • The New Room

    thumbnail

    My dearest husband and I have started to redo our home. We began with the bedroom. A gorgeous walnut color has been chosen to represent our furniture. White sheets shall be peeking out from under a stunning brown duvet set that has white trees flourishing over them. Our blinds were a more trickier part to establish. However, we decided on an ivory white color that seems to add quite an interesting spark to the room. Candle holders that swirl and branch out will delicately hang above the bed to create a romantic essence. Alluring chocolate curtains will flow over the windows as the breeze flows into the room. The final piece that will be saved for last, a painting done by my husband and myself, will be mounted above our bed. The painting will be of wondrous trees that elegantly lace together to form a radiant heart in the center. It will be the finishing touch to complete the room.

  • 25 going on 40

    thumbnail

    I’m so confused! I’m only 25! How is this happening?

    “Babe!” I yelled to my girlfriend as I stared at my reflection in the mirror. I traced my finger along my receding hair line.

    My girlfriend walked into the bathroom. “Yes?”

    “Look at me!” I turned to her, with my eyes wide opened so far, it looks like I belonged in a loony hut.
    “What dear?”

    “Do you not see this!? Do you not see what is wrong with my hair?” I looked backed in the mirror, scared I just might be seeing things.

    “Oh sweetheart,” she put her hand on my shoulder. “You’re just missing a little hair, that’s all!”
    “A little!” I looked at her surprised that she is taking it so well. She loves my golden locks!

    “If you’re not liking it, then maybe use your rainy day money to get a FUE hair transplant? I mean, it’s been sitting on top of the fridge for five years now. Surely you have enough money with some left over.”
    “Alright,” I pulled her in and wrapped my arms around her.

    She looked up and kissed my cheek gently. “I’ll start making phone calls now.”

  • A Valuable Friendship Wasted

    thumbnail

    My friend just started modellen fotografie and she has seemingly had her nose in the air since she started. It is funny how when people get a sudden boost in their ego, they also get an even larger boost in their attitude towards others. I have tried numerous times to contact her about our weekly night out, but apparently she has bigger and better plans with the camera. Although I am happy that she is accomplishing her life long dream, I am also rather angry that she is turning her cheek to me. I never thought she would end up as rude as she has, but I guess nothing in life goes as planned. I am just hoping that she will realize how great our friendship is, sooner rather than later.

  • Adding Style To The Yard

    thumbnail

    I was standing in my front yard the other day, looking at the area off to the side of my garage, where the plants are coming in, and wondered what I could do to make it look nicer. It took me a few days to figure it out, but I eventually decided to go down to the landscaping store, and buy stones to decorate the area with.

    So, I picked up a few bags of gravel, and some liner, and went to work. I started by laying down the liner, and then adding the gravel on top, being sure to evenly spread it out. It only took me an hour or two to complete my project, but when I did, it looked great. I was amazed to see how just adding some gravel to the area had completely transformed it into something out of a magazine.

  • Your determination is your destination

    thumbnail

    I’ve been trying to shed pounds for a while now and it seemed so hard in the beginning. I’t seemed hard because it means I had to change my normal routine. In the beginning I was able to learn what worked actually me. The hardest part is always the first stage , I tried juicing, diets pills and eating healthy with small daily work outs to start.

    Each option effects each individual differently, once I found what worked and followed it I started to see results. Manchester thai massage and 30 minutes to an hour a day of workout was very effective for me. I eat 6 small meals a day to keep my metabolism going and I do 30 minutes to an hour of daily cardio.

    Striving for my ideal weight makes me feel healthier and improves my looks. Keep pushing, it’s a hard journey but it’s well worth It.

  • Valentine’s Day Surprise

    thumbnail

    Imagine my surprise when my husband not only took the day off work to be with me, but he also took me out for a 90-minute thai massage Edinburgh! After our massages we went out for dinner at our favorite restaurant. It was where he proposed to me! I couldn’t believe the night I was having! He presented me with a new diamond necklace and ordered champagne. We spent the evening laughing and remembering things from our early days together. We reminisced about spending hours talking on the phone late into the night, getting ready so nervously on our wedding day, and those first few months married when we were just trying to adjust to living with each other. We danced the night away and slept in the next morning. By far, it was the best Valentine’s Day we ever had together. I can’t wait to see what next year brings.

  • One of my biggest fears

    thumbnail

    One of the biggest fears my father faced when his bladder began to give hold was the problem of incontinence in social situations. As an ex-marine, he was always around his military buddies when they attended their meetings and met up for dinner. Even though they also were dealing with medical problems in their old age, he clearly did not want to let go of his pride and admit his issue to his friends. Once he found out that adult nappies could be worn without any chance of leakage or being noticed, it was an easy sell to get him to start wearing them. In addition to his involvement in social situations, he has a better spirit about him now in general. I cannot tell you the level of embarrassment that has been lifted from him since not having to have his son clean him up after an accident.
