  • Feel Your Boobies (Or Else I Will)

    By GalTime's Funny Gal Jenny Isenman

    Feel your boobies! Feel your boobies! After a lump scare in my late-20′s, I learned that all lumps are not the c-word and it's totally okay to get to second base with yourself!

    Let me tell you a tale, a tale of two boobs - mine.

    After finding a pea-sized lump and getting a needle biopsy, I was told that like the several million other young women with fibrous breast tissue, I would be required to get a yearly mammogram and ultrasound.

    I'd heard horrible tales of the mammogram and its crushing pain. I feared the impending torture and dreaded that what little my childbearing and breastfeeding had left unscathed would be permanently altered.

    By the time my appointment rolled around, the fear of having something more than a fibroid cyst had started to set in, as well. If I can produce one kind of growth with no knowledge of it, why can't I produce another kind?

    Justin and Jessica finally tying the knotJustin and Jessica finally tying the knotA reported "few hundred" guests have made their way to Naples, Italy to attend Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel's wedding.

    No confirmation on what day they're set to tie the knot, but an insider told the NY Post that the couple chose the location because it "means a lot to both of them".

    A source added:

    "The maid of honor will be Jessica's longtime best friend, Lindsay Ratowsky."

    Meanwhile, friends and family have been kept in the dark about the exact location of the nuptials:

    "A private plane was flown out of New York to take guests to Italy, including both their publicists. But the event has been shrouded in a lot of secrecy, and not even the guests were told the exact location or day of the wedding before they left."

    One thing is for sure - guests are banned from bringing cameras or phones into the wedding.

  • Stop Worrying so Much About Being Single

    By Terri Trespicio for GalTime.com

    Stop worrying about being single! Stop worrying about being single! There is a great myth out there being sold wholesale to single people: You're incomplete if you do not have a partner. There's also the time sensitive version: You're incomplete--and a failure--if you do not have a partner by age X.

    I've got news for you, people. This is complete and utter bullshit.

    Where does it come from? Everywhere. Your parents, neighbors, bosses, billboards. The idea also works well in novels, screenplays, and love songs. And unfortunately it tends to put women in the trapped position of being both passive and culpable: "What's wrong with you? Why does a nice girl like you not have someone? Why hasn't the right person come along for you?"

    The biggest problem, however, comes when we buy it. And keep buying it. Far too many of us do. So my advice? STOP SPENDING MONEY IN THE MYTH SHOP. Every time you talk about it, believe it, prove it to yourself, and try to convince other people that you are a washed up, useless

  • 4 Tips for Starting and Running a Small Business

    By Chamber of Commerce's Megan Totka for GalTime.com

    Tips for running a small business. Tips for running a small business.

    According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, there are 10.1 million women-owned businesses in the United States. In fact, 40 percent of all privately-owned U.S. firms and 30 percent of small businesses are owned by women. Businesses owned by women employ more than 13 million Americans and generated $1.9 trillion in sales in 2008.

    As evidenced by these statistics, women are experiencing great - and increasing - success in the business world. Still, women-owned businesses continue, in certain areas, to lag behind the businesses owned by men. For example, businesses owned by women are only half as likely as those owned by men to generate at least $1 million in annual revenue. With that in mind - and to celebrate that this month is National Women's Small Business Month - here are four tips for women who are interested in starting and running a small business.

  • Three Essential Tools to Make Positive Changes in Your Life!

    By Stephenie Zamora for GalTime.com

    Change Ahead Change Ahead Today I have an extra special post for you!

    When I was in the midst of my quarter-life crisis, I remember declaring every single birthday and New Year's Eve that THIS YEAR would finally be my year.

    I was certain, every single time, that "this time" I would finally get back in shape, fix my relationship, start being more creative, make the move to work 100% for myself, find that amazing tribe of women to call my friends and FINALLY make sh*t happen for myself. That was twice a year (sometimes more)… for about three long years. THREE. LONG. YEARS.

    Each birthday I was overcome with determination and would create an action plan with loads of goals, big dreams and lots of excitement. And then, nothing happened… at all. Sure, sometimes I went for a good week or month, but then it was business as usual.

    When New Years rolled around a few months later, I got another surge of energy because it felt like a second chance to really make things

  • When is it OK to Be Friends with an Ex?

    By Dr. Jane Greer for GalTime.com


    Janet Mayer / PR PhotosJanet Mayer / PR Photos "You know, Justin and I are great friends. We love each other. We want the best things for one another," Cameron Diaz told "Good Morning America" in 2011, long after her relationship with Justin Timberlake had ended and while they were promoting the comedy "Bad Teacher" together.

    While the former pair have publicly complimented each other, even since Timberlake has become engaged to Jessica Biel, is being friends with an ex only the stuff of scripts and on-screen romances?

    Often when people end a relationship they say, "Let's be friends." It makes sense. You've been the most important people in each other's lives for a long time, maybe even years. It's hard to make that clean break -- it can feel like a gaping hole in your life. So you decide to continue to be a part of each other's life. But staying connected isn't always easy or the best choice. So when, if ever, is it OK to be friends with

  • Super Easy Marshmallow Pumpkins

    By Valerie Deneen for GalTime.com

    Marshmallow Pumpkins Marshmallow Pumpkins My daughter Emily and I love to do some Halloween "baking" every year. She thinks these marshmallow pumpkins are the coolest thing, and they are super-easy to make. Each marshmallow makes two pumpkins. Very frugal! Emily made these with very little help from me whatsoever. For a slightly healthier option, try slices of banana instead of marshmallows. I say, go for the marshmallows! After all, Halloween only comes but once a year.

    Begin by cutting each large marshmallow in half. It is scientifically proven that when you cut sweets in half, all of the calories spill right out! Related: DIY Pumpkin Candles
