Here are some common mistakes that should be avoided and some tips on how to help, support and carry during your friend’s pregnancy:

Don’t Hang Out at The Bar

Alcohol and pregnant women do not mix and cannot participate in all the debauchery that carries alcohol can be a major cause of a decline in some women. Instead, go to a juice bar or throw a small party at your home.

Try Your Best to Avoid Losing Patience with Your Friends

Pregnancy does some very strange things in a woman’s mind and one of the most difficult to deal with his mood swings. This can range from minor explosions to an all-out explosion. Try to be patient as much as possible, and if he is really acting strange, excuse me.

Make Her Included in Your Friends’ Events

Style Tips For Plus Size Women

Style Tips For Plus Size Women

I know a lot of us are completely happy with how we look, and never worry about what we look like or how we’re dressed. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those women. While I’m happy being the size I am, I still dress to minimize my plumpness. Not sure why – perhaps that’s for another article!

So I’ve got a few tips on the following pages – just things that I’ve picked up along my journey through life. I hope they’re helpful to you – my aim is to enable larger women to feel comfortable and secure, and proud of who they are.

I know a lot of you are proud of yourselves already, but some of us need a little help from time to time. Enjoy!

Dark Colors: I find that dark colors hide shadows in my clothes that my wobbly bits create, where as light colors emphasize the shadows

 Patterns: As long as the patterns are small, they hide a multitude of cream donuts! And I don’t think large patterns really look good on anyone.

 Stripes: Diagonal, or vertical strips are flattering to any shape, as they draw the eye down the body, elongating it. Horizontal strips are best left to the waifs amongst us.

 Fit: Fitting clothes always look better than tent-like clothes, on any shape or size. They give a definite shape to the body, elongating it and creating a waist. Don’t be frightened to wear fitting shirts or dresses. You will be pleasantly surprised by the result.

 Belts: Belts create an instant waist, and, like fitting clothes, give your body a shape. Don’t worry about the muffin-top – it’s still better than wearing a square piece of clothing.

 Frills: Ruffles and frills can be tricky – they can work, but perhaps keeping things simple and …

Comfort Vs Style, Who Wins at the End of the Day?

Comfort Vs Style, Who Wins at the End of the Day?

First of all, I want you to imagine a world where people can just wear anything they want on any occasion, time, and place, without any prejudice, stereotype, or whatsoever. There will be WAY less people wearing suits and heels, and of course, we will see more flip-flops, rubber sandals (if you know what I mean), and sneakers. But of course, no such world exists, because people naturally live by image and rules

Why do we wear painful, itchy, and sometimes even frustrating piece of clothing everywhere? For office workers, it’s obvious that they’re following the dress code in their respective workplaces. Besides, wearing a suit -for a guy- screams authority and confidence, so people would most likely think highly at you. For a woman, wearing a pair of high heels boosts confidence and posture at the same time, although all women know how uncomfortable they are for any activity at all.

But wait! What about those people at the mall who strut their stuff and women who wear 6″ stilettos? Honestly speaking, I have no idea either. I understand the need to look our best in public to boost our self-image, and people have their own way of doing so. Some people prefer to do their hair before they go out, some spend an hour to choose their outfit, and some other, well, they wear uncomfortable pieces that look good on them.

But how far would you go to look good? What’s really painful to look is men who sweat so much when they wear tailored tuxedos and women who can’t even walk straight anymore because the high heels are too high and the hours are too long. Sometimes I think “What is wrong with this guy?” or “Why don’t you wear lower heels?”, but then again, being a …

Married Couples – Is It Possible For You To Be Happy?

Married Couples - Is It Possible For You To Be Happy?

What is it like being in a marriage relationship, or equivalent, where you are taken for granted? You do all the activities that are part of any marriage relationship. There is no acknowledgment that you take all these responsibilities, it is simply expected you will do them because you always have. It is not thought there is anything unusual about your situation as is it mirrored in marriage relationships throughout the world.

It is often claimed that circumstances with married couples is different today, it is not like it used to be. However, any surveys that have been taken reflect very little change as they show things are much the same as they have always been.

These surveys demonstrate married women overwhelmingly carry the burden of household and parental duties regardless of the fact that with many married couples both parties are in the paid workforce.

Any involvement in these activities by a lot of men in relationships is regarded as being magnanimous, chivalrous or generous. It is generally viewed as helping, and when involved with children, especially when they are very young, it is often seen as baby sitting, and this is with their own children.

As a couples counselor I have seen many married couples where the men fit into this category of helping, and the women have said other women have expressed how envious they are.

The women have stated they wonder why they don’t feel so good. My suggestion has been to say that perhaps they are made to feel they are indebted to the men in their relationship and this is burdensome. They are now made to feel they owe them for their generosity, and this would probably mean there is now no excuse for men not having sex.

A point to be made is …
