The Benefits of Human Hair Wigs

November 26th, 2012 in entertainment, fashion, health, health-fitness, illness-disease, mental-health, shopping by Betty

Growing up, my hair was always very long. By the ninth grade, it fell to my waist and I still distinctly remember how it feels to get your hair stuck in those horrible desks attached to plastic chairs that looked like they came from the turn of the century and were always cracked in at least three different places. Every person who had long hair in school, high school particularly, will undoubtedly have residual anxiety from getting their hair stuck in the back of those terrible chairs

Book Review: “Your Mark on the World” by Devin D. Thorpe

October 30th, 2012 in books-authors, entertainment, family, fashion, health-fitness, illness-disease by Betty

When we are substantially and meaningfully affected by something, whether directly or indirectly, whether tragic and heartbreaking, courageous and inspiring, or even enraging, it is common for us to ask ourselves and the people around us what we can do to help. A multitude of different things can spark an urge deep down in our gut to reach out to those around us in our own communities and to those around the world, such as losing a family member or close friend to an illness, battling an illness ourselves, natural disasters, an unwavering passion for politics and social justice issues, as well as stories, both uplifting and catastrophic. The overwhelming call within ourselves to do what we can–donate money to charity and nonprofit organizations, volunteer, run a marathon–is a feeling we are all familiar with

Book Review: “The Lust Garden” by Billy Jolie

August 28th, 2012 in books-authors, celebrity-gossip, entertainment, health-fitness, illness-disease, mental-health by Betty

It’s very easy to see the allure of the lives led by the Hollywood elite when you’re an outsider looking in through the peephole that is the paparazzi and celebrity news. Our society is so enamored with celebrities because often all we see is the money they have, the extravagant houses, cars, designer clothes, and whatever else they want that can be bought at the drop of a hat, and the power that derives from it all.

Dead Celebs: Only the Good Die Young [Infographic]

August 21st, 2012 in celebrity-gossip, entertainment, health-fitness, illness-disease, relationships by Betty

The road to fame is littered with pressure, temptation, and hardly ever being told “no.” It’s extremely easy for celebrities to fall into the rabbit hole of addiction; this is so true that many times we are surprised to find a celebrity who hasn’t battled with substance abuse, or at least piqued the interest of fans, onlookers, and paparazzi as they are photographed stumbling out of a club several times a week. All too often, the lives of some of the most popular celebrities derail into a downward spiral. Sometimes they are lucky and get the help that they so desperately need to overcome the obstacles that have been created in their lives.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen Review (@Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox Item)

August 8th, 2012 in entertainment, health, health-fitness, illness-disease by Betty

With summer comes more time spent outside than during any other time of the year, and as great as the sun may feel as you head out to enjoy popular outdoor activities like swimming and sports, as well as the outdoor entertaining you may do, it’s important to avoid overexposure to sunlight and to protect your skin whenever you are outside. We know that the sun’s UVA/UVB rays can have really dangerous effects on our skin and eyes, and is also a major cause of skin cancer, but even an hour spent in the sun can dry out our skin. Personally speaking, I get uncomfortable and even painful dry patches of skin all over my body whenever the weather changes.

Alcohol vs. Marijuana [Infographic]

August 2nd, 2012 in entertainment, health, health-fitness, illness-disease by Betty

We all know the dangers of alcohol, and we have all heard about the dangers of marijuana, but with more states embracing medical marijuana, and with 17.51% of the American population living in a state that has legalized medical marijuana, we should definitely be asking–is marijuana really as dangerous as we have all been repeatedly told it is? The following infographic compares the dangers of alcohol and marijuana side-by-side and features some really interesting information and statistics. Most compelling is the fact that according to the Harvard University Division of Experimental Medicine, the active ingredient in marijuana can actually cut lung cancer tumor growth in half
