Published on September 27, 2012 by

Luckily, new studies have been conducted to get to the bottom of this issue. “For years, doctors have noticed that those liposuction patients who consume too many calories and don’t exercise enough usually don’t put on tummy weight after abdominal liposuction but, in a year’s time, store new fat in other bodily areas such as the arms, the back or the breasts. Dr. Eric Swanson, a plastic surgeon in Leawood, Kansas decided to put this theory to a test; his results were published in a well-respected […]

Published on November 30, 2011 by
No matter what, I love getting my nails done for me. Receiving any manicure from is better than doing it at home myself.

But when I heard they were going to give me a “GelColor by OPI” manicure that can last up to two weeks, I scheduled my service right away! With the holidays here, I have little time to get my nails done but I have lots of parties and events to attend so of […]

Published on October 27, 2010 by
As we age, our faces lose collagen which causes lines and wrinkles, our bodies also produce a chemical that actually breaks down collagen as well. Collagen is the key to healthy skin that tends to age well. “Collagen is the skin’s structural fiber,” dermatologist Dennis Gross said in the October 2005 issue of O Magazine. “As we get older, it breaks down, creating lines and large pores.” However, using products that contain collagen won’t change a thing, as collagen CAN NOT be absorbed by the skin to replace lost collagen. So what are we supposed to do? There are a million choices in skincare, how does the average person decide […]
