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

'1 cadburybar-chocolatemightbegoodforyou-healthcare'

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.

Item Of The Week

31 Jan

 

This week’s item of the week comes from 21 Men.  Hats.  I can’t get enough of them, and I sure as hell like a guy wearing one.  Fedoras are one of my favorites, and I’m telling you you’ll look sharp in one.  This one adds a little flair with an old time black and white plaid, with a patterned ban around it.  The women will love you in it.

Avant-garde =  trademark of modernism

By: Samantha Dudhnath

avantgarde_fourfront1602

What is avant-garde?  What does it have to do with fashion?  Well, it has a lot to do with fashion, art, culture, and lifestyle.  Avant-garde pushes against the social norms and boundaries that we see on a ‘day to day’ basis.  It explores a different type of beauty then what we are not used to seeing.  Avant-garde is said to be the trademark of modernism.  It is also considered to be anything that is a rebellion ahead of the times.

Health Insurance

It’s not just for the unhealthy

By: Anya Martinez

'1 Emergency Room-HealthInsurance-Medicare'

Many young adults and working professionals underestimate the importance of a solid health care plan. Being younger and healthier means that many of your medical expenses can arise from unexpected illnesses and emergencies. Unplanned trips to the hospital can take a huge chunk out of your bank account and if you don’t have a solid healthcare plan, you might put yourself into some serious debt. An ambulance ride alone costs anywhere from $350-$800.
