Brighten Those Eyes & Lengthen Those Lashes!



RF has long made one of the most popular eye creams on the planet, the Multi-Function Eye Cream that treats wrinkles and crow's feet, but in the past year the company has outdone itself in the eyes department!

First known as the makers of Proactivfor acne, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have expanded their offerings with products that treat the most common signs of aging skin... and that includes the eyes!

At the end of 2016 the doctors unveiled the exclusive Lash Boost formulation which makes eyelashes thicker, longer and fuller-looking. In addition, the new lashes treatment is good for filling in thinning eyebrows! Lash Boost quickly dominated the eyelash market, outselling the top-selling mascara in the U.S.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriends and Ex-Wives

Looking at male-dominated websites like Funny Junk, memes abound about crazy ex-girlfriends. The internet is full of men who think they need to "Go Their Own Way" instead of dealing with crazy women. Talking to my girlfriends the topic also comes up. 

A couple of my friends have been called "crazy ex-wives" by their husbands, and just today a woman told me she had to delete her Facebook account due to her husband's crazy ex-wife. 

I am sure some women have mental health issues, perhaps genetic, or due to addictions, or perhaps hormonal, but how many of the other "crazy" women are just average women trying to put up with a husband who is married to his business, or married to football, alcohol, porn, video games, golf, etc.?



I have known men who schedule an hour with their partner to watch a show or play a game and then rush back to work, never sharing about each other's day. These well-intentioned guys never understand the value of debriefing each other at the end of the day. In fact, in many cases the man really doesn't want to hear any "talky-talk" from his partner. Is it any wonder these women find their emotional needs unfulfilled?

Or how about a woman whose spouse is OCD and has to correct every little thing: where she puts the yellow scrubbie, how well her character reacts in a video game, if she left a paper towel on the counter, etc. with the mantra "why did or didn't you do so-and-so" dominating her life?

Some men are night owls and like to work on the computer or get frisky at 1 or 2 in the morning when their sleep-deprived partner just needs some shut-eye. The woman is not only going to suffer from lack of sleep but probably from her spouse's dissatisfaction with her unwillingness to have a romp.

Then there's the "magic coffee table" husband. I got this from a video on YouTube where a man thinks his coffee table must be magic because everything he leaves on it magically disappears. Some men never realize the time a woman spends on household chore. They just expect the coffee table to be clean each day, the laundry done, the towels folded, the meals cooked, the dishes cleaned, etc.... and some millennial men expect their girlfriends to do all of the above without a wedding ring or any financial responsibility on his part! 

Some men think the woman should do ALL the housework, even if these women have their own jobs and responsibilities. No wonder these women get emotionally overloaded.

And then there are men who cheat. They deserve crazy ex-wives or ex-girlfriends. They earned them. 

So yes, maybe your husband's ex-wife seems a little crazy, but maybe he is doing all the things for YOU that he never did for HER. Maybe she stuck with him for two, ten, 15 years to help him make his fortune and maybe he's spending that fortune on his new younger, hotter, trophy wife. That would make me a little crazy, too. 

Next time you hear about someone's "crazy ex-girlfriend," take a closer look. I have come to believe that behind many crazy ex-wives and ex-girlfriends are the men who drove them crazy.

Brighton Jewelry Brightens My Day

Playing jewelry model at the Brighton Store in Green Hills (Nashville)

Cute accessories always help bring out your outfit and pull it all together. -- Ciara

One of my favorite stores to visit is Brighton Jewelryand since jewelry and fashion fall under the category of "beauty," this is the perfect place to talk about it. 

I have enjoyed Brighton charms for several years and have designed a couple of bracelets using them. However, I soon became captivated by the diverse designs and the sparkle and shine and, well, BLING of all the Brighton collection: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, hair clips, handbags, etc..

Swarovski crystals set in silver and gold plate settings topped with their protective coating make Brighten my favorite costume jewelry right now. The the Heart and Soul display is one of my favorites with their symbols of faith, and I would like one of each of the sparkling blue bracelets pictured here.


"Playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends." —Kate Spade

At a recent visit to the Brighton Store at the Green Hills Mall, the manager graciously allowed me to try on one of everything -- well, not quite, but I did manage to put on several necklaces and bracelets and pretend like I was a jewelry model.

Brighton also carries a nice selection of leather goods. Eventually I hope to acquire a Brighton bag. Thankfully, my business is booming, and I have a little mad money these days.

Of course, you can find sterling silver pieces without the name brand for comparable prices if you know where to look, but there is an artistry to Brighton that is hard to beat. So when I visit a mall or upscale shopping area, I always look for the Brighton store. I may not buy anything, but admiring the beautiful designs, colors and shiny things does brighten my day.

Tennessee Expo Aims at Making America Healthy Through Vegan Foods



On Sunday, September 17, 2017 the third annual Healthy Taste of Knoxville Health, Fitness and Nutrition Expo will take place from 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM at 3611 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919.
The media and the public are invited to this free community based event that draws attention to the health benefits of a plant based diet and offers motivation and information for practicing a more healthy lifestyle.
While there is scientific evidence both for and against the vegan lifestyle, the growing popularity of vegan plant-based foods has sparked a debate over health and what constitutes a proper diet. Can plant based foods be tasty and healthy too? Haagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry's think so as the plant based ice cream market is projected to grow 10% annually until 2027. (www.livekindly.co/plant-based-ice-cream-growth)
"Wow, wow, wow I never imagined meatless meals could be so satisfying." -- Oprah Winfrey.
"Becoming a vegan gave me another opportunity to live a healthy life." -- Mike Tyson.
"Basing our diets on plant foods which contain fiber and other nutrients, can reduce our risk of cancer." -- The American Institute for Cancer Research
The event attracts thousands of people each year from across Tennessee and surrounding states. Nearly 100 restaurants and organizations will participate this year including, the American Red Cross, Atlantic Natural Foods, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Humane Society, Juice Bar, Kristina's Kitchen, Kroger Stores, Moe's Southwest Grill, Sanctuary Vegan Cafe, Save-A-Lot Grocers, Subway, The Vegetarian Express, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, YMCA, YWCA and many more. (see complete list at: healthytasteofknoxville.com)
This is a family friendly event with many vendors providing free samples of their vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free cuisine. Cardiologist Dr. James Marcum, MD author of "Medicines That Kill," and cancer survivor Dr. Ruby Lathon PhD (Featured in the movie "What the Health.") will be on hand to freely answer questions related to a plant based diet and the effect on the human body. Other medical professionals and lifestyle educators will also be present for free consultations.
There is no charge to the public or the vendors. Vendors interested in participating in this years expo can find the registration forms on line at: www.healthytasteofknoxville.com

A Dermatologist Explains Mysterious Skin Disease Greyscale on 'Game of Thrones'

By Source (WP:NFCC#4), Fair use, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?curid=35018821

For a short time "Game of Thrones" was one of my guilty pleasures when actor Sean Bean of "Lord of the Rings" fame played the Season One lead role of Ned Stark. The show quickly became too dark and sexually explicit for my tastes, but I have continued to read reviews, articles and spoilers to keep up with the plot.

Recently I cane across an intriguing article about the deadly and mysterious skin condition greyscale, a disorder that is the terror of the citizens of Westeros and other locales. Spread by skin-to-skin contact with another person or an infected object, greyscale is a highly-infectious plague. The skin disease causes a grey, rock-like overgrowth of tissue that gets progressively worse and more deforming over time if not treated immediately by magic and alchemy. It is usually dealt with by quarantine or exile.

Jules Lipoff, MD, assistant professor of clinical dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania, takes a look at the skin disease from "Game of Thrones" and offers his own diagnosis and treatment for greyscale.

Top 4 Benefits of Playing Video Games

Is Video Gaming Bad for You???

While many articles have been written in the past about the harmful effects of playing video games for 30 minutes or more each day, more and more studies are being done that point to the wellness benefits of regular gaming on the brain, eyesight, and surprisingly, mental health as it relates to happiness, self-awareness  and attention span.


Here are four positive results researchers have uncovered from studying video gaming

1.The brain has been shown to get bigger as a result of playing video games.
2. Gamers are actually happier and more self-aware than their non-gaming peers.
3. Gaming can improve eyesight according to some research.
4. Video games can help improve attention issues.

This does not negate the effects of violent games and games that objectify women. Certainly violent games and games that minimize women into bimbos have a negative effect on boys and men, but the other positive results point to the benefits of many games that are free from gratuitous violence and sexual connotations.

The Truth About Turmeric and Curcumin

Front row of my spice cabinet: turmeric and curry powder



Spending my early childhood in India, I developed a taste for spices like curry powder and turmeric (one of the main ingredients in curry powder). After three years in New Delhi, my family returned stateside with a taste for curry. So when I started reading about the amazing health benefits of turmeric and its main chemical constituent, curcumin a few years ago, I was intrigued.

Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia. There turmeric and curcumin have long been used in 
traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine and Siddha practices as attempted treatment for various diseases and internal disorders, including indigestion, throat infections, common colds, liver ailments. It is also used topically, to cleanse wounds or treat skin sores. It is worth noting the average lifespan in India during the time of native Ayurvedic medicine was abysmally short.


However, the big money-making movement for "all natural" foods, medicines and products has quickly embraced older ethnic practices of using herbs and oils to treat everything from warts to cancer. Indeed, my own mother was an early subscriber to "Prevention" magazine where she learned about home remedies to treat lesions on the leg and succumbed to melanoma cancer as a result.

Today turmeric and curcumin have been put forth and hailed as treatments for everything from inflammation to high blood pressure, from arthritis to Alzheimers. Herbs, vegetables and fruits provide necessary nutrients and have other benefits for the body, but there is little high-quality clinical evidence for use of turmeric or curcumin, as treatment for the wide array of ailments they are said to impact.


According to one curcumin study curcuminoids have been the subject of over 120 clinical trials of against several diseases, but "No double-blinded, placebo controlled clinical trial of curcumin has been successful." That study found curcumin to be "an unstable, reactive, nonbioavailable compound and, therefore, a highly improbable lead." 

Another turmeric study looked at research on the spice for a variety of health conditions and found that, "Claims that curcuminoids found in turmeric help to reduce inflammation aren’t supported by strong studies."


Even studies where researches believe the turmeric has potential benefits are forced to acknowledge that while turmeric and curcumin, have been studied in numerous clinical trials for various human diseases and conditions, the conclusions have either been uncertain or negative. That points to the lack of systematic review conducted to evaluate the strength of the research.



An interesting study of turmeric's effects on skin indicates the spice "has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-neoplastic properties," but sums up by saying it "may provide therapeutic benefits for skin health" and that further studies are essential. 


In conclusion, the many alleged reports of the numerous health benefits of turmeric and curcumin are mostly anecdotal at best. The majority of reported clinical trials and research studies are inconclusive. There is no clinical evidence that turmeric or its chemical component curcumin have any medicinal properties and no proof turmeric supplements have any benefits.


I still plan to cook with turmeric. I enjoy the flavor and would not be surprised if turmeric, like other vegetable, fruits, herbs and spices, might add a modicum of healthy benefit to my diet. However, I won't be wasting my money on turmeric supplements with no clinical evidence and no proven benefits. The powerful all-natural spin machine can get rich on someone else's dime.
