It is 2014 and if you are one of the 70’s or 80’ kids, you will know what a real woman looked like when walking the runway and graced magazine covers. Then of course there are those fabulous Hollywood beauties. Then there was the 90’s. That was tragic. The runway and magazine models were expected to look like heroin addicts and in fact they named the look “Heroin Chic”. The problem with that is that the girls of the time thought that THAT was what health and beauty looked like. Kids got sick. Some died. The look was abandoned and poo-pooed as bad influence and publicity.
Enter 2000 and suddenly women have curves again and girls want to look like Angelina Jolie, Selma Hayek and Catherine Zeta Jones. These are real women, real beauties. Now girls have role models to look up to and aspire to be just like them, if only in looks and body. And why not? With the right eating plan and workout program, it certainly is do-able, and I know how.
There is a lot of controversy surrounding new diets and celebrity diet plans, but why not try one that won’t make you look like you are a victim of the holocaust and give the Venus factor diet a try? It is designed to give women what they want…the perfect body, but without almost killing them first! It will give you curves and not sharp angles. Continue reading
When you consider how much time people spend playing with their cell phones, wouldn’t it make sense to use it to get a date with your phone or flirt with a special girl you are interested in? Don’t you want to know the secret to magnetic messaging? Don’t you want to know how to use it to your advantage too? Sure you do, everyone does, ok every GUY does.
Now you are probably thinking “but I know how to send a text! Who doesn’t?!” and you would be right and wrong. It’s easy to type out a few words on your little phone and hit the send button, but do your texts have anything worthwhile in them? Are they response worthy? Do your texts elicit an immediate response from every girl you text or do they seem to disappear into the black void that seems to eat all unanswered texts? Still think you know how to text a girl and get the best response? No? Ok then, sit down and learn something.
First off you have to understand the nature of the lady you intend in text seducing. You need to know whether or not she likes jokes, and what kind. It’s no good sending her a naughty joke and you get an icy reception. She might not find them funny and be offended. It’s always best to get to know the person you are texting by engaging in an actual conversation with them trough texting. This is the first step. Continue reading
If you are one of those guys who has a really hard time talking to women, getting a date with one or even just being around one, then this is for you; the toa of badass review is a book written by a guy who was a skinny, underwhelming looking guy who sucked at sports of any kind and let a super model looking girlfriend slip through his fingers and use him like her own personal pet monkey slave. Now he is the biggest and baddest ass of them all with women, and the best part is, he can turn it on and off at will. Wanna be like him? Then check out the review mentioned and learn a thing or two from the master.
Ok so you not THAT bad, and women are not repelled by your face or very presence, yet you still feel shy and inadequate around females. Dude, you are not the only one. Every guy on this planet has gone through it at one stage or another, but has eventually cracked open that shell and joined the fun of chasing chick, being rejected and trying again until they nail one. Ok not the nicest way of putting it, but be honest here, that’s exactly what you want for now right? Just to nail one. After that you will do the whole “feelings” thing with a ‘special somebody” and have a real relationship, but at least for a little while you wanna practice chasing them and nailing them.
Fair enough. Who can deny any young man this pleasure so here are some ideas on how to get somewhere with the ladies and learn a couple new things to get you started and on your way. Continue reading
Anyone who is carrying around extra undesired pounds understands well the societal views that surround them, people who think that anyone overweight subsists on nothing but cakes, candies, chips and sodas. It is looked down upon, as not a sign of excess, but of self control. Job opportunities plummet, dating is a no win zone, and even your health has gone foul. It doesn’t feel good in any variety of ways, and though we have tried to fix it, either we weren’t motivated enough, we didn’t try hard enough, or we didn’t want it badly enough. We may have used many programs promising weight loss before, and not seen the successes we needed so badly to stick with it.
There is still hope for people who are overweight, and looking to give themselves a completely different lifestyle, vibrantly healthy, virile, and feeling truly alive. There are programs like Eat Stop Eat available that offer to show you how to transform your body through your diet, except instead of taking everything away, and making you eat differently, this one allows you to eat relatively normally. The key is when you eat, not what you eat, and the reason why might surprise you.
Throughout our existence on earth, humans have had to adapt to violenty changing environments. They were nomadic, constantly seeking food and shelter, in equal importance. Men were chosen as mates as those most able to provide in such trying times, and often did not have long life spans. Our bodies had to become a perfect machine, balancing the time dedicated to digesting food, and the time when we went without food, to begin boosting things like our immune system and our energy levels. Thus, humans continued to evolve with our environment to the age of technology. Though eating times were introduced in the 1800′s as a way to be “proper” they were only breakfast (break-fast) and a luncheon (served with tea, lunch-eon *an age*) meaning that they still intended these meals to break a cycle of fasting. As time progressed, we also began including supper, and even more recently, the suggestion that we should be snacking between these 3 meals. Is it any small wonder that our entire society has become overweight? We were never meant to live this way. Continue reading
There are hundreds of reasons why people come to SA for visits, holiday or a perfect family or honeymoon holiday. Most come because of Cape Town, and who can blame them?! It is the perfect summer holiday treat for anyone of any age. So much to do and see, in fact so much that it requires more than one trip to see it all! Others come to see the colourful and vibrant night life of Durban. It almost has a carnival feel in the summer (ok and winter since it’s always warm) and the kids love the rickshaw rides and Ferris wheel and loads of flea markets.
But there is another reason why people love South Africa holidays; KwaZulu-Natal or KZN. The scenery is out of this world! It has it all. Stunning coastlines and breathtaking landscapes and of course, as if it could be over looked, the Drakensburg Mountains. This mountain range is huge is near impenetrable. The name is derived from the Afrikaans name Drakensberge, which literally translates into Dragon Mountains. The Mouantian range we know as the Drakensburg is the name given to the eastern portion of the Great Escarpment. The Zulu name for this mountain translates to the Barrier of Spears, which is quite apt, since that is what it kind of looks like and what protected the Zulus back in the day. It stretches over 1000 kilometres and is 3,482 metres (11,424 ft) at it’s highest point. That is quite impressive.
You can take short hikes through the mountains or even stay overnight on some of the trails. This in itself is quite an experience.
There are 11 official languages and quite naturally, as the name of the region suggests, it is home to the Zulus, but also to many different tribes and ethnic groups. The Zulu are a proud people with a rich heritage. It was built on the military strength that gave the British pause for good reason. The Zulu gave the British a bit of a pounding at Isandlwana. In the past, KZN had a large part of the making of history at the Anglo-Zulu and Anglo-Boer wars alike. The names like Isandlwana, Rorke’s Drift and Spionkop reverbaerate through time and are brought back to life through awesome battlefield guides who will inform you when you are standing on sites, exact spots where very specific events took place. There are accurate records of names and places in that time, to corroborate these claims by the guides. Continue reading
