  1. Take a close look at your knees and elbows.  If they’re unsightly, you can do a lot to make them look better.  For pretty knees and elbows; try rubbing wet table salt on both before you go to bed at night.  Finish with your favorite moisturizer or petroleum jelly. You’ll see a noticeable difference in about two weeks. Remember, unattractive knees and elbows can distract from the most gorgeous outfit.

Everywhere I go, I get compliments on my skin, and hair and it’s usually from women.  Remarkably, five years ago I had serious skin issues.  I spent a lot of money on skin crèmes trying to achieve better skin, and it turned out I was just whistling in the wind.  I had break-outs on my face that you couldn’t imagine, and I was always crying about a new blemish here or there.  MORE

I remember it well.  The night my life changed.  I was on a blind date with a guy my sister had arranged.  When I stepped out my car and saw him, I was thrilled and intimidated at the same time.  He was a star and instantly I felt out of my league. Though he was polite throughout dinner, which he tried to sprinkle with a few jokes, it was clear he was not pleased with my appearance.  When I ordered dessert, he made a long sigh, as if he was bored.  It was obvious he was ready for the date to end, as he excused himself to go to the men’s room.    MORE

A friend stopped going out partying with the girls a year ago, because she claimed men never approached her or even looked her way.  It was understandable.  At best, her look at that time could be described as “unprepared.”  Her hair was just there.  It always looked as if it was there only to cover her scalp.

Kay and I were not friends.  We were just co-workers who shared a common space.  But one day, for a moment in time, we became bonded souls.  I had worked with Kay for two years, and if I had been asked to give my impression of her, I would have described her as funny, happy, and confident.  She was quick to flash a bright smile, inspire laughter with her dry wit, and debate an issue to its minutest degree. But deep inside, Kay was hurting and she hid it well.  For many days, we laughed together and then one day we cried.     MORE

Three months ago, a woman came to me two days after her boyfriend finally proposed and wanted me to help her fit into a wedding gown she had just purchased.  She was a size 12, but she had bought a size 10 dress, because she had gotten a designer original at a great price.  She was desperate because the wedding was in eight days, (they were flying to Vegas) and she wanted to be picture perfect.
