“I want to be a doctor, a nurse, a hair saloner, a makeup saloner, work at Wal-Mart, work at Kmart, work at McDonald’s where I can eat all the chicken nuggets and work at a hotel so I can go swimming. And I wanna be a mama too!”
– Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, on her future career aspirations
(PCM) Victoria Beckham, fashion designer and Glamour’s September guest editor, knows a thing or two about what’s chic and hot for fall.

Some of us are food addicts. I am for one. An addict can be described as someone who uses a substance to get from point A to Point B. He or she feels that they cannot manage on their own and so they choose an illegitimate source for help. And point A and Point B can be almost anything. Point A could be the beginning of the work day and Point B the end of the work day….Read full post
(PCM) Did you know that most fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts pack more sugar than a Kit-Kat bar!? Yikes! Even nonfat yogurt varieties can be loaded with sugar; top that with a handful of granola and you’re looking at a morning sugar rush comparable to what you’d get from a donut!
Still, yogurt is a great source of calcium and probiotics, so if you choose the right type, it can be a healthy snack or breakfast option. Check the labels…Read full post
(PCM) Want to look thinner by tonight? Believe it or not, it’s possible! You may not be able to actually lose weight by the end of the day, but you certainly can appear like you have.
It all comes down to wearing the right clothes for your body type, and just as importantly, the right shoes. Yes, what you wear on your feet matters! Luckily, the shoes that make you look thinnest are shoes that almost every…Read full post
(PCM) Disney icons – Minnie Mouse, Daisy, even Goofy – have gone couture, and in the fashion industry that can only mean one thing: they’ve gone on a diet.
That’s right, all of your favorite childhood characters have been given some very serious makeovers, all in the name of fashion. Their short, round frames have been stretched to supermodel height (turn them to the side, and they’d probably disappear), and stripped of their sweet polka-dot dresses…Read full post
Heading on a road trip this Labor Day weekend? After all, nothing wraps up the summer quite like a long drive with good music, great friends, and hopefully, beautiful weather.
Aside from the obvious essentials – car chargers, GPS, neck pillows, cash, and of course, an iPod, and a full tank of gas – don’t forget to fill the car with the other essential fuel: snacks! Instead of stopping at rest stops, gas stations, and fast-food joints…Read full post
Yesterday was a day of celebration amidst a day of pain. A lot happens in life and some of those days can be really rough. I have had a long standing battle with depression and from time to time it comes in waves that just want to beat me down. Yesterday was one of those days.
As I write this I am still not myself, but I know some emotions come from legitimate sources and some do not. It…Read full post
You may not need another reason to love chocolate, but we’re going to go ahead and give you one anyway: eating just one chocolate bar per week can reduce a man’s risk of having a stroke by about one-sixth!
Swedish researchers at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institute followed more than 37,000 men between the ages of 45 and 79 for about 10 years. They found that men who ate the most chocolate — about 2.2 ounces per week — had…Read full post
(PCM) Think you’re doing an okay job of cleaning your contacts every night? Chances are, you’re not. In fact, you’re probably doing it wrong.
A University of Texas study found that 90 percent of people thought using fresh solution meant simply adding a few drops to what was already in the lens case. That is NOT what you eye doctor taught you!
What’s the big deal? According to Men’s Health, it does more harm than you might…Read full post
