You try something on as you're getting ready to go out. It feels a little tight. So you look to your guy and ask "Do I look fat in this?"… He tells you that you look beautiful. But you're not convinced. You proceed to complain about your body, asking if he thinks you have gained weight, pointing out your cellulite, charging him of no longer being attracted to you. He continues to reassure that "you look fine."

Overweight, underweight or just healthy?
Do you think I'm Fat?
Or maybe I appear more Anorexic to you.
How about Gorgeous?
No? Pukishly Hideous?
In one day I was called all four names on my various online outlets- Facebook, YouTube, and my website QuickieChick.com.
Bullying today may be delivered in a different form- social media, and by different types of people- often anonymous, it still cuts just as deeply as "traditional" schoolyard bullying. I know because I have experienced both. Bullying happens to everyone…Regardless of how old you are, what you do, what you say, what you look like, and how "popular" you are.

Easter Chocolate EggsFrom weight loss to mood improving, and now sex life boosting? Yes, seems chocolate truly is a super food!
Honestly, what could be better than warm, rich, creamy chocolate? Stick a chunk in your mouth and feel it slowly melt on your tongue, turning into liquid. Does the sweetness turn you on? Italian researchers discovered that women who regularly consume chocolate have higher libidos, increased sexual arousal, and greater sexual satisfaction (we love those Italians… always coming up with sexually charged studies. No wonder they are such good lovers… or, um, so "they say.").

Considered the "food of the Gods" by ancient Mayans and Aztecs dating back to 600 A.D., cocoa was one of the most expensive and sacred foods, reserved for the elite and religious ceremonies. Today the intoxicating treat may be consumed by the masses (and in mass) but its seductive properties are as potent as ever.

Man in BedGetting back in the dating game after having pulled yourself out for however long you were committed in a relationship can be fun, then frustrating, and eventually lonely. If you have kids, you are adding a whole new level to your dating/daddy life. How do you accommodate both your bachelor dreams and child's needs?
Those first few months (or maybe even years) of not being half of a whole, you take full and complete advantage of your renewed freedom. Dating (or bedding), let's be honest pretty much anyone who smiled at you.

Soon, you get comfortable in your singleness, totally uninterested in someone new doing so much as leaving lip gloss in the nightstand or a toothbrush on the bathroom counter. After awhile the same old same old becomes lonely and you look for someone who you can actually hold a conversation of meaning with. So you go on a serious dating (not bedding) rampage. But how do you know

Fat-Burning Tea It's time to detox. Question is: what route are you going to take? Master Cleanse, Vegan, Juicing, Enema, Colon Cleanse, Colonic, Intense Exercise, No Alcohol... or a less drastic option that isn't lifestyle disputing and is something that you can actually stick with- long term?

There are plenty of products, services, and plans promising to help you detox, burn-fat, and rev up your metabolism. Some are extreme- requiring a complete diet revamp, others are pill-based (made from who knows what), and then there's the best: a combination of lemon, cayenne, cinnamon, and hot water (no not the master cleanse). Why is it the best? Because it's naturally, gently, yet effectively fat-burning, metabolism boosting, and detoxing and you can incorporate it into your day, every day. How? Because every ingredient in the cup is a Bite with Benefits. I call it my "Special Tea," or my "Fat-Burning,

Pint of GuinnessWhether you're typically a beer drinker or not, St. Patrick's Day seems to be the one day a year when almost everyone drinks their share. For those who drink MORE than their share, they are often the ones waking up the next morning barely able to lift their throbbing heads, swearing off alcohol for good (this time), and shunning the site of the piles of empty beer bottles. But beer isn't all bad.
Studies have found that drinking beer in moderation can reduce your risk of heart disease, kidney stones and certain types of cancer. Another unexpected perk, if you are drinking Guinness (even Obama drinks it): you could be consuming fewer calories than you would have with that glass of Pinot or Cabernet. Other benefits of this brunette brew…

QuickieChick Laurel House drinking her Goddess Drink St. Patrick's Day isn't just about drinking until you're green in the face. It's also three days before the official start of Spring… cleaning. Combine the two: Green and Clean, and you can't help but explore the obsession-worthy trend of pressing, squeezing, shaking and juicing nutrient-packed fruits, veggies, and sprouts- with purpose! So what's yours?
I'm talking Bites and Sips with Benefits- the concept that everything you put in your mouth has more of a purpose than to fill (or fatten) you up, but can also help to energize, calm, beautify, make you feel sexy, help you focus, and, yes- detoxify your insides. Multitasking what you put in your mouth- that's the QuickieChick way!
And while the trend is to take a basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouts and grasses and press or juice them, there are tricks to reap the benefits without spending loads of cash on bulk fresh and perishable produce or pre-packaged juices. Here's a super easy,

Man in Bed
Similar to women, penises have their own personalities- regardless of size and shape. Sure there are stereotypes and assumptions, but I know some seriously big-boobed, perfect bodied blonde chicks who aren't more fun and couldn't care less about sex, and some majorly mousy brunettes who have a wild streak like you've never seen!
No, I don't believe that blondes are more fun just because they are blonde, especially in bed. (BTW, I am a blonde, and I have been a brunette). In fact, I have heard more stories from men about blondes, or pretty girls in general, who are the worst lays they have ever had because they just lie there like a dead fish, putting all of their eggs into their good looks to get the guy off, totally uninterested in technique, inner clenching at the right times, or even faking a few sounds for effect. They literally just lay there "looking pretty." Ugh. And no fun for either of you.
So back to penises… same goes. Big, fat, long,

I LOVE pancakes. But I honestly infrequently eat them because of the carbs. Which is why I am so beyond thrilled by these protein-packed pumpkin pancakes that aren't just insanely tasty, belly-filling and emotionally-fulfilling, but they are Bites with Benefits! Here's how…
Immune Boosting- It's the beta carotene, an antioxidant that helps boost the immune system
Natural Glow and Tan- Again, the beta carotene brings out skin's natural glow, and even makes you appear more tan!
Combats Post-Exercise Muscle Pain- An alkaline food, pumpkin helps reduce lactic acid build-up in your muscles, making it so that those post-exercise aches and pains go away faster.
And it's just 30 calories per cup
