  • Foods That Feed Your Sex Drive


    Is Sexting Sexy? We Weigh in on the Latest Dating Trend

    Having problems in the bedroom or looking for ways to spruce things up with yur beau? Forget the sex therapist; just visit the grocery store! We all know that some foods have been proven to improve your memory, give your skin a healthier glow, or even boost your metabolism, but these foods serve a sexier purpose. They will feed your friskier side!

    1. Asparagus
    This vegetable is rich in Vitamin E which is thought to stimulate the production of your sex hormones -- essential for a healthier sex life.

    2. Chili Peppers
    A pepper's heat comes from "capsacin," a chemical that stimulates nerve endings. After eating hot foods, the body's pulse rises, triggering the release of endorphins. This gives the body a natural high, a feeling that is very conducive to lovemaking.

    The Best Red Lipstick of All Time: We Put 9 Tubes to the Test

    Not getting enough beauty sleep? A night of sleeplessness can leave an impact on your physique, and more often than not, the results will be far from pretty. A night of tossing and turning can really take its toll not only on your energy levels, but also on your face; sometimes, looks just don't lie. Dark circles are never flattering on anyone. Try out some of these beauty tips to mask a sleepless night.

    These are a few tricks for hiding dark circles, the dead giveaway to a sleepless night:

    1. Cucumber slices. The most effective remedy is also the most cliché, but thin slices of cucumbers over the eyes really do wonders! They help to lighten skin, soothe, and cool the eyes.

    2. Tea time for your eyes. Tea bags also help to reduce eye puffiness. The secret lies in the caffeine that acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Be careful though because not just any ole' bag of tea will do. Green,

  • Dating Deal Breakers: When It's Time to Get Out

    Getty ImagesGetty Images

    As an eligible single woman, it's only natural to be looking for that significant other who will sweep you off your perfectly pedicured, Louboutin-clad feet. You go out with the girls in hopes of catching the eye of your future Prince Charming and securing that fairytale ending, but sometimes dating trials run amuck, leaving you with an experience that you wish you could have skipped out on.

    Dating can be fun, but oftentimes we have to weed out the freaks before we find the ones worth our time. Some guys have idiosyncrasies that are just too much to handle, but what are the real red flags that should send you running in the completely opposite direction? Here are some deal breakers that we think warrant an instant end to the relationship. These guys mean trouble:

    The Best Winter Soup Recipes for Every Craving

    It's become generally accepted wisdom to drink eight glasses of water a day. The universal advice has practically made guzzling water a national pastime. But let's face it, drinking that much water everyday isn't that easy for some of us. The 8x8 rule can be a good rule of thumb when it comes to staying hydrated, but that's not the only piece of advice that can help. Here are some helpful (and more enjoyable) ways to make sure that you're drinking up every single day:

    1. Get a fluid companion. Carry a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go and refill it throughout the day. Keeping a water companion with you will serve as a constant reminder to drink up. We especially love Klean Kanteen's stainless steel water bottles, $15.95, at rei.com.

    2. Get a water purification system. Believe it or not, purified water tastes better and will make getting your daily dose more appetizing. Keep a purified pitcher filled up in your fridge so

  • 10 Tips for Calming Everyday Anxiety


    Are You a Red Lipstick Lover? We Put 9 Tubes to the Test!

    Sometimes it seems that each day comes with a new set of anxieties -- whether it be a bad start to your work day, a pending deadline, or even just stress built up from your relationship. Whether big or small, not every anxious feeling needs a Xanax to be resolved. Here are some suggestions on how to remedy those small nagging feelings that when left unattended, can eat away at your mental health.

    1. Write in a Journal
    A book filled with blank pages is your best (and most cost-efficient) therapist. Never worry or fear judgment from this blank book as it lets you pour out all of your emotions without time constraints or an hourly fee.

    2. Meditate
    Yoga, meditation, and other tranquil activities allow you to calmly sort out your thoughts and relieve any feelings of anxiousness. If you need to release an excess amount of stress as well, try a session of bikram yoga (also known as hot yoga) that will have you sweating out all of

    How to Apply Flawless Liquid Foundation

    As we all know, in the world of fashion, one day you're in and the next day you're out. Styles come and go. We have all experienced the "what was I thinking?" moments, when our once "super chic" outfits and styles become outdated and turn into nothing more than a serious fashion emergency. The same is true for hair. We've all fallen victim to a wrong hairstyle at some point in our lives. Let's take a look at some of the most questionable looks over the past 100 years. (I bet you've tried one or two of these 'dos before...)

    1920s: "The Shingle" haircut (above)

    The "shingle" haircut, or as we know it today -- the classic bob. As skirt hemlines got shorter, so did ladies' haircuts. In the 1920s, a really short bob (especially at the back of the neck) with straight across-bangs that covered the ears was the "fashion-in" for ladies' hairstyles. In 2009, Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham brought the bob back with a modern twist and many of us caught

    Top 10 Songs to Dance Alone to in Your Room


    Let's face it, breaking up isn't easy, but sometimes it's necessary. So when the time is right, we're calling all ladies to channel their inner strength and, as the saying goes, be cruel to be kind. It's cut throat time -- no ifs, ands or buts about it. But the question remains--how do you say goodbye for good?

    If you've recently reached the conclusion that it's over, then there's no reason to feel bad about cutting the strings. After all, the longer you wait the harder it will be. Need help? Here are ten ways to break it off:

    1. Short & Sweet
    It's a little insensitive and we don't recommend it unless it's been a very short term relationship. This method is somewhat of a kiss-off. It's when you meet your guy in the early evening, ready to go to dinner with your girls. They're waiting in the cab and you're planting a kiss on his cheek while saying, "It was fun, but things just aren't meant to be." You blow him a kiss, say "see you around,"
