Do people still go out on dates now-a-days?

If you do, then consider….

By: Samantha Dudhnath

You have done the traditional dates.  You have taken your girl to dinner and the movies, coffee shops, cuddling on the couch and “watching” Netflix on demand, but now you want to spice it up a bit.  You want to do something that isn’t quite the norm.  Here are a few non-traditional dates that will leave your lover staring at you all starry-eyed:

Bed bugs

Taming the itch

'1 bedbugs-bedbugs-bedbugbitecare'

Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to detect and even more difficult to eradicate. They are nocturnal insects that feed on human blood. They live in bed sheets, bookshelves, couches, bed frames; just about anywhere they can get access to blood. Most often, they bite human hosts while they are sleeping, and so the host does not feel the sensation of being bitten. Because of this, the bed bug can feed repeatedly and for long periods of time. This is why a person rarely has one bed bug bite, but dozens.

Cabin Fever

By: Samantha Dudhnath

I am completely stuck in cabin fever mode now.  I don’t know about you, but the slushy grossness of the dirty snow makes me nauseous, and the off gray sky is making me super depressed.  And it’s only February.  Without a doubt more snow is coming.  So what’s a girl/guy to do during this dark period?  Why not tap into your creative side.  Even if you say you’re not an artist, just go for it.  Don’t hold anything back.  Here are three ways I unleash my creative side:

Chocolate might be good for you

But there’s a catch

By:  Anya Martinez

It was a dream come true for chocolate aficionados when they heard the news that chocolate could benefit their health.  In 2004 researches reported that consuming dark chocolate and cocoa improves the function of blood vessels. In a newer study, consumption of cocoa resulted in improved vascular responsiveness in people aged 18-77. It is believed that flavinoids (an antioxidant) in chocolate causes vascular improvement.

Lauryn Hill

Miseducated genius

' 1 laurynhill-miseducatedgenius-music-wyclefjean'

My artist of the week spotlight will shine on Lauryn Hill who I believe to be a beautiful, gifted and talented woman. Hill’s music has a personal signature that marks it as distinctly hers. She takes ownership of her craft, just as she does her style. We all remember her time with the Fugees, and their hits like Killing Me Softly and “Ready or Not” but it was with her 1998 release of her debut solo album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” that she made her name unforgettable on the music scene.

Obviously, by now you know that I am into street style from all over the world. To me fashion is a creation of art, and you can get really intricate with it, or not.  You don’t have to be into fashion, but guess what?  Just by wearing your everyday clothes you are in fact into fashion.
