  • 5 Ways to Finally Lose Those Last 5-Pounds

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    gut checkThose last 5 pounds can feel like they are impossible to lose! No matter what diet, detox or workout you try, none of them seem to work- at least not long term. Surprisingly, those last 5 pounds are more about little changes and daily healthy habits than big diet trends and major exercise crazes. Here are 5 healthy habits that will help you to finally lose and keep off those last 5 pounds.

    1. EAT Bites with Fat-Burning Benefits
    Hot and spicy foods like jalapenos, ginger, cinnamon help to burn more fat faster. Make sure to incorporate at least one fat burning food into each meal. Try this Fat-Burning Detox Tea.

    2. DO a Daily100 ANY time ANY where...

    Daily100s are just 100 seconds or 100 reps of 1 exercise (100 reps of butt squeezes, dancer's leg lifts, seated side crunches, stiletto jump rope, saddle bag tamers). Adding a few 100s to your day will rev up your metabolism, help you burn more calories throughout the day, and put you in a fit mindset-

  • Would You Microwave Your Sweat Glands?

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Laurel House prepping or miraDry-Are you a serious sweater? I mean SERIOUS sweater?
    -Do you soak through shirts, creating gigantic armpit circles… even when it isn't hot out?
    -Have you ever sweat through a jacket… even when you're cold?
    -Have you tried EVERY antiperspirant and NONE of them work?

    If you have said yes to all or most of the above, you could have hyperhidrosis. But that's ok… you can cheat it.

    What is Hyperhidrosis?
    Most "normal" people don't sweat enough for it to be an issue. But then there are those who suffer from an embarrassing, rarely talked about, but pretty common problem called Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is excessive and unnatural sweating that can result in sweating through and ruining clothes- even saturating leather jackets. Because it can result in visible circles of sweat, sufferers can experience extreme social anxiety, making them less likely to raise their hands, keeping their arms pinned close against their bodies,

  • "The Bachelor" Tips to Being the Marrying Kind

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Engagement RingWhat makes you the marrying kind? What compels a man to choose you over everyone else, to kneel down at your feet on one knee and ask you to be his wife?

    Being the "Marrying Kind" is a complex dance, a balancing act, a study of opposites. Still, there are 8 main elements that make for wife material… and all 8 have been perfectly exemplified in this season of "The Bachelor"…:

    1. Confidence
    Guys want to feel like they won the prize, like they are dating the head of the cheer-leading team. They want to feel like they are the luckiest guy in the room. If you have a bummer, insecure, self-deprecating, "I'm not so great" attitude, why would he feel like he scored? Be confident. That doesn't mean cocky, rude, arrogant, egotistical, or self-involved. That means self-assured, capable, believing in yourself and your abilities- whatever those abilities are.

    2. Strength
    Can you stand tall when he experiences moments of weakness? Or will you

  • Bullying Continues.... From Playground to Cyberspace

    By QuickieChick Laurel House

    A girl getting bullied"When are you going to wake up and realize that you are a fraud who hasn't and never will amount to anything, and that your parents are ashamed of you? Why don't you just give up?"

    "You look like you were just f****d in a barn you're so trashy."

    "Your skin is seriously so disgusting I just threw up in my mouth."

    "She's just a dumb bimbo blonde who probably had everything handed to her and screwed every guy on the football team. Why would anyone follow her advice?"

    "I can't believe you're trying to tell people how to work out. Have you looked at yourself you fat cow?"

    …That's just a taste of the online bullying that I get from putting myself out on YouTube and posting my articles, videos and advice on websites.

  • Would You Shop a “Man-Ventory?”

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Laurel House and Man-VentoryDo you now what men find seriously sexy in a woman? Confidence. Now, women get to show that confidence from the very beginning...

    Roles are being reversed in the realm of online dating. Forget men taking hold of the reins, because women are now taking charge of their dating destiny!

    In order to fully grasp this revolutionary swapping of gender roles in a dating situation, it is important to address the problems that have plagued online dating scenarios, until now. The typical, antiquated online dating situation usually consists of:

    1. Singles sifting through loads of messages, pokes, likes and other modes of acknowledgement trying to find the "few and far between" gems.
    2. Dealing with some seriously creepy messages.
    3. Dealing with other "spam-like" messages that are clearly cut and pasted.
    4. Dealing with messages that are, simply put, just solicitations for sex.
    5. Stressing over the question of "do I seem desperate if I reach out first?"
    6. Waiting -

  • Heartbroken? How to Get Over Him Faster

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Checkhimout.comWhether the relationship was good or bad, women are often still seriously bummed about it when it's over and we have a really hard time moving on. EVEN if the relationship was honestly awful, we still struggle to stop thinking about him, oddly "forgetting" all of the bad stuff and just remembering the good. It's time to stop living in the past because your fabulous future is waiting!

    But of course, just jumping into a new guys arms isn't going to magically repair your heart- same feeling different face. NO. HOWEVER, it is a good idea to start looking, window shopping, seeing what else is out there- you will be reassured that there really are LOTS of available, fantastic, guys who are better than your ex in many ways.

    While you really aren't ready to hunker down with a newly titled BF (believe me… you AREN'T READY), dating isn't always about relationships. You can date for fun, for learning, for exploring, for companionship too. So if you're

  • How to Survive Valentine’s Day If You're SINGLE

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Single SetbacksLet's face it, Valentine's Day is essentially a Hallmark holiday created for:
    a) Love-sick couples who need yet another excuse to publicly profess their undying love and devotion.
    b) Saps.
    c) Needy and greedy women who live for chocolates encased in heart-shaped boxes and, lest we forget, the infamous robin's egg-blue box in which a diamond encrusted necklace nestles.
    d) Okay, me- yes, ever since my mom made me write valentines to all 35 classmates in grade school I have been devoted to the day of love- single or happily (or even unhappily) coupled.

    But learning to celebrate the day as a single can take some practice (and possibly years of counseling- no wonder my therapist drives a Benz!) Here are 4 tips to survive and honestly enjoy this day of love!

  • How to Tailgate WITHOUT Bulking Up like a Football Player

    By QuickieChick Laurel House

    Five Guys bacon cheeseburgerMore than the beefy football players, the ball whizzing through the air, and the face-painted screaming fans, tailgating can be the best part of football season. You get to pre-game with your slap-happy friends, gorging on brats, wings, and dogs, and washing it all down with pitchers of full-bodied beer. Translation: Calories, Fat, Carbs… oh and lots of fun! Fun aside, football season can be torture for any diet-dedicated fan. In fact, it can even result in a 10 pound weight gain. Yes.

    Thankfully, you can still have just as much fun without packing on the pounds (transforming from a tight end into a wide receiver by season's end). And you don't have to rain on the game to do it.

    1. DO: Animal Style, Protein Turkey Burger (ala "In n' Out") no cheese
    Lean Turkey, grilled onions, ketchup, wrapped in lettuce (not bun). Be aware though that many brands of Turkey burgers are LOADED with as much fat as burgers.

  • Are You Good in Bed?

    By Screwing the Rules expert Laurel House

    "You're the worst lay and head I have ever had."

    sexy bodySome guys say that kind of thing when you break up with them as a way to get back at you. "Yeah, screw you! You sucked (and not well) anyway!" This guy broke up with me. And while telling me that I was awful in bed was certainly a blow, it was true. I had no idea how to suck. And considering that I am my own worst critic, beat myself up if I look stupid, say the wrong thing, or don't come out on top (though I prefer the bottom in bed), I took the comment as constructive criticism and began to research.

    I went to the bookstore and got a book written by a woman who was given notes on how to give head by her best gay guy friend. I devoured this book, reading it over and over again, taking notes on the pages, doing the motions with my hands and tongue in the air looking like an absolute freak at stop lights. And while a book-based education is great, there's nothing like the real thing.

  • Screw the Rules and Meet Your Mr. Right This Year

    by QuickieChick Laurel House

    Finding "There are no good guys in my city." "All of the guys I meet are idiots." "Every decent marriage-material man is already married!" "Why is every single guy such a player?"… Sound familiar? It's so easy to blame your location, men in general, or other factors for your inability to get and keep a good guy. I'm not saying that you are at fault either… though you may be. Most likely the issue isn't you or him. It's your strategy. It's those rules, that list, your set prerequisites that have been leading you astray. Well screw them! There are a lot of great, single, dedicated, faithful, totally your type, good guys in your town who are looking for a so fab chick exactly like you. It's time to find, attract, grab and keep him, instead of letting some other chick nab him up while you're looking the other way.

    …But first you've got to figure out who you are and what you want; only then can you find the guy who is right for you, and get him to ask you out (or be
