Cosmetic surgery – Not just for Women?

For a long time, cosmetic surgery has been perceived as a mainstay of the female world with men being too masculine to possibly entertain it. Indeed it is only in the last decade that looking after your skin has become acceptable for men and in the last year or so a whole host of new skincare products aimed specifically at men have been launched and marketed making it an almost normal sight to see a man moisturising – who'd have thought it…

Procedures such as face lifts, eye bag removal and, most importantly, weight loss surgery can be affectively applied to both sexes and with the advancements in surgical techniques pretty hard to spot. Seen as "maintenance" these procedures can be part of a normal, everyday life.

Along with the improving health and fitness of our nation we want to look as good as we feel inside and this can be a way to achieve it. Plastic surgery used to be seen as a cheats way to lose weight and something that only had short term results but this is certainly not the case.

Men now account for 10% of all cosmetic surgery procedures undertaken and this figure is on the rise. One particular operation that works quite well for men is liposuction as the fat tends to be more localised and less stretched as men do not have to suffer things like pregnancy. This means the results can be better and longer lasting if a healthy lifestyle of good food and exercise is kept up afterwards.

Cosmetic surgery is now more than acceptable for men and needn't be something to be embarrassed about. Make sure you seek out an experienced and approved surgeon to make sure your plastic surgery goes without a hitch.

Natural Skincare: Surprising New Discovery

I know you're not surprised to read that natural skincare continues to be promoted as the best approach for maintaining the health and beauty of your skin. What may surprise you, however, is a new discovery that is promising to take natural skincare products to the next level. This discovery is an extract of sea kelp called Phytessence Wakame.

While this exciting discovery may be new to us, the truth is that the health-enhancing properties of sea kelp have been common knowledge for the Japanese people. Sea kelp has always been a part of the Japanese diet, both in fresh and dried form. Add to that a diet rich in essential fatty acids (from seafood), daily exercise and lower stress levels from strong community support systems and its easy to understand why people in that part of the world never seem to show their true age. Natural skincare is a way of life for the Japanese people.

But this doesn't mean that you are excluded from the benefits of natural skincare just because you live in the Western part of the world. You may not care to make sea kelp a daily part of your diet but you can certainly benefit from its inclusion in natural skincare products. Researchers have found that Phytessence Wakame enhances the health of your skin in several significant ways:

1. Phytessence Wakame is loaded with B-complex vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6 B12) as well as iron, postassium and calcium. These vital vitamins and minerals are key to maintaining moisture balance and keeping your skin nourished and healthy.

2. Phytessence Wakame is capable of blocking a damaging enzyme in the body called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase attacks and breaks down hyaluronic acid, which your skin must have in order to maintain smoothness, firmness and elasticity.

3. Phytessense Wakame contains an active ingredient called sulfated polyfucose which has been found to protect the skin against damage caused by UV rays and environmental pollution. As a result, the development of fine lines and wrinkles is prevented.

4. Phytessense Wakame has been shown to be effective at healing inflamed, irritated and dry skin. The result is an even-toned, luminous complexion.

Keep in mind that you have to be careful when you rub any product into skin, since some of the active ingredients eventually get into your blood stream. If you think about it, it's almost the same as eating them. That's why natural skincare products that contain Phytessence Wakame, along with other natural, plant-based ingredients are safe to rub into your skin.

That being said, however, you should know that despite the fact that ingredients such as Phytessence Wakame are derived from plants, it isn't possible for them to be completely "natural." There is a degree of processing that must take place in order to extract and enhance their effectiveness.

So now that you know about this surprising "new" discovery, why don't you treat your skin to an ancient natural skincare secret used by women of the Orient who know a thing or two about beauty.

Finding and comparing eBook Compilers

Now that you've finished writing your eBook and have a
basic understanding of what an eBook compiler does,
you may be feeling overwhelmed by the number of
compilers on the market. To help you make your
decision, I have tested and reviewed the best-rated
eBook compilers currently available.

* E-ditor

This software has a demo version that you can download
to try out before purchasing. You can't actually use
the demo to create an eBook, but you can run the
software and test it out thoroughly to see if it does
what you need it to do for your particular eBook.

This eBook compiler is one of the easiest to use. The
software has a very user-friendly help menu that
provides instructions for and explanations of every
field on every screen. The program also includes video
tutorials demonstrating every step of this compiler
with clear explanations of all fields that need to be
filled out. There are 7 screens that you use to choose
your eBook options.

This compiler requires your files to be in HTML
format. You follow simple directions, and the compiler
loads your files. If you decide to edit your eBook
after it has been compiled, make any changes in your
original files and click on "Compile you eBook" and
your changes will appear in your compiled eBook.

E-editor allows for some customization of your eBook.
You can create a special page that appears when the
eBook is opened; create customized icons that appear
on the desktop after downloading; use your own logo on
the task bar of your eBook; customize the task bar's
buttons, where the task bar appears in your eBook, and
choose the task bar's colors. Additionally, you can
choose to have the eBook open to the last page read,
which many of your buyers will appreciate.

An excellent and unique feature of E-ditor is the
capability to choose a standard Microsoft window or to
create your own design for a window to personalize
your eBook. The program provides some sample window
designs, but you can use any .bmp (bit map skin)
graphic you have stored on your hard drive.

E-ditor is a good choice if you are new at producing
eBooks because it is easy to use and allows you to
customize the appearance of your eBook.

Ebook Edit Pro is loaded with excellent features that
allow you to create multi-media Ebooks, and includes a
Wizard that is customized for beginners and for
advanced users. The software uses HTML files,
downloading them from the directory where they are
saved. Edit and resave your files in the original
software used to create those files, and then with a
single click you can re-compile your Ebook.

Features include customization of icons, toolbars, and
the "about box." This compiler has a particularly
useful feature called the Rebrander feature. This
permits you to enter customized code into your Ebook
pages and distribute the Rebrander software to your
affiliates or distributors. They can then customize
the links included in the Ebook, but they can not
alter any link or information that you have not
entered a customized code for.

The software includes "eBrand-It" software that allows
custom fields for your customer's name, affiliate ID
or URL. This feature is a powerful marketing tool
because affiliates are much happier giving away your
Ebook from their own site when they can customize it.

* Ebook Compiler

This compiler offers a demo version that allows you to
compile 10 files. If you don't include graphics, you
can create a 10 page Ebook that allows printing and
copying of the Ebook. The catch is that you can't sell
any Ebook you create in the demo version.

The purchased software is user-friendly with
easy-to-follow help files that not only guide you
through the steps of compiling your Ebook, but also
explains what an Ebook compiler does. The software
provides detailed instructions on how to create source
files from Microsoft Word 2000 and 1997, PowerPoint
2000 and 1997, and HTML documents. It contains less
detailed instructions for creating source files from
other programs.

This compiler allows for password protection of your
entire Ebook or for selected pages. Additionally, you
can set a time limit on your Ebook. When the runs out,
the customer no longer has access unless they pay for
it. In other words, it allows you to create a demo
version of your Ebook for marketing purposes.

You can set a single password or multiple passwords.
Using multiple passwords assigns each user their own
specific password. Online help files guide you through
setting up your passwords. You can also create a Sales
and Thank-you page for selling a password protected
Ebook. This is a good choice for the novice,
particularly since it includes basic features for
password protection and distribution.

Ebook Creator is another excellent compiler,
supporting HTML, JPEG, GIF, and PNG graphics, and
Javascript, VB script, and Java applets. It also
supports all Internet Explorer plug-ins. Standard
features include unique serial numbers, direct linking
to a form or a page on your website, disabled right
clicking, and search functions. The software allows
for expiration after a set number of days or usages,
which allows you to create demo versions. You can
create up to 1000 different passwords; every time the
Ebook is downloaded, a unique password is required to
access protected pages. The software provides
user-friendly menus and buttons that allow the
beginner to the advanced user to easily create their

Five Helpful Tips to Ensure Safe Medication Purchase Online

We always hear of advertisements on the web saying,“Discounted Fioricet - pain relief at budget-friendly prices!”But we can’t be sure whether the companies that advertise such will keep their end of the bargain. Briefly explained are the benefits and risks of buying from online pharmacies as well as five helpful tips to avoid buying from the wrong online drugstores.

We usually encounter email advertisements for online pharmacies saying, “Discounted Fioricet - pain relief at budget-friendly prices!” It may sound like a sweet deal, especially for people with budget concerns, but it isn’t all that it seems.

The benefits
It is true that online drugstores offer the convenience of not having to leave the house to go to the pharmacy anymore. Ordering and payment are done online – paperless and hassle-free. All consumers need to do is to log on to the Internet, visit an online pharmacy site, click on the prescription medication they need to order, enter the necessary information, and they’re all set.

Online discount drugstores offer a lot of savings for the budget-conscious consumer. Not only does buying prescription medication like Fioricet on the web cut off a big chunk of the medication cost, it also helps consumers save up on transportation expenses like gas and fare.

The risks
Consumers must keep in mind that scams can be sugar-coated with sweet talks of generous offers. Rogue web drugstore owners can hide behind professional talk. But not all professional looking websites are real. Here are some of the possible risks involved in buying from online pharmacies:

A possibility of receiving cheap Fioricet knock-offs.
A possibility of receiving expired Fioricet products.
A possibility of being poisoned by fake Fioricet products.
A possibility of having your information stolen by anomalous web pharmacy owners.

Five helpful tips
The best way to protect yourself from the above mentioned risks is to know where to make your prescription medication purchases on the web. Here are five helpful tips on how you can avoid becoming a victim of rogue online drugstores:

1.Trust only government-certified web pharmacies.
You can contact your local pharmacy board to ask for a list of certified online drugstores that were given due license to operate in and distribute prescriptions to your state.

2.Search for Internet pharmacies accredited by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).
The NABP has collaborated with the various pharmacy boards for a set of standards that online pharmacies need to meet before they are eligible to become members of the Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (VIPPS).

3.Trust only web drugstores that ask for a prescription note.
You can rest assured that online pharmacies that ask you for a prescription letter are following the set of rules implemented by the local pharmacy board, which states that all pharmacies are required to ask for a prescription note from their customers wanting to fill a prescription order.

4.Avoid online pharmacies that offer automatic refills of your prescription.
Automatic refills are dangerous because these could lead to addiction and substance dependency. Aside from that, you can get continuously charged for products that you no longer need.

5.Read and understand the company’s privacy policy statement.
It is important for consumers to know how the company plans to protect their privacy. Make sure to read and understand whether the company has a sound set of policies to safeguard your information. Make sure that they will not share, sell, nor misuse all information you submitted to their website.

Being wise in choosing the online pharmacy to buy your prescription medications can be vital in protecting not only your health, but also your security.

How to be the Queen of Self Esteem

Many women have a “missing piece” which is deeply tied to feelings of not being good enough – not being able to measure up to the expectation of others or self, not being pretty enough, not being a good enough spouse or mother, etc. Feelings such as these lead a woman to see herself in a false light. A woman’s self-esteem then falls by the wayside.

Let’s look at a woman’s heart. As a woman, your heart is at the center of who you are. It is the source of all of your creativity and conviction -- the very essence of your being. Your heart is what makes you the crowning jewel of creation! You are hard-wired to have certain desires in your heart which have been set there since birth. As an example, one of these desires might be to be seen as captivating or alluring. Another might be to play a vital role in the life of another.

Few women seem to actually realize such desires. Many deal with the disappointments that result by either hiding out or indulging. It’s often easier to do this than to face the pain felt deep inside. But your questions remain: Am I wanted? Am I captivating to anyone? Am I worthwhile?

I believe that we are all meant to experience lives of joy and fulfillment. However, the desires of a woman’s heart and the way her life actually is are usually miles apart.

The truth is that every woman is someone whom the world desperately needs! Take a look at the creation story. First came the skies, waters, trees, animals, man, and, finally, woman…the crowning jewel. Talk about significance!

Every woman has beauty to unveil.Your beauty doesn’t come from a hair dresser or a plastic surgeon.It was given to you when you were created.

Chances are that you’ve lost sight of your beauty, your gifts, your desires or your purpose. You give so much of yourself to the caring of others that you forget to - or don’t feel that you have the “right” to - care for yourself. You may think that the amount of time you give in caring for others is noble. On one hand, it is. Let me tell you, though, that on the other hand it is not.
In neglecting self care and the occasional indulgence, you are actually short-changing those to whom you devote yourself. You are not able to give them your best because you are not AT your best. Both for their sakes and for yours, you must learn to avoid believing the story in your head that causes you to feel guilty about taking time for YOURSELF.

What Can You Do?

1. Accept responsibility.
Another person is not responsible for your happiness nor can they make you feel less than the woman who you are – the woman that the world desperately needs.
2. Distance yourself from those who are neither loving nor supportive.
Certainly, work to heal and strengthen all your relationships, but avoid those who drag you down. We are here to build each other up, not to tear each other down. Practice loving others AND loving yourself! Know that YOU are loved. Let it sweep over you and fill you up. Be grateful for it. Practicing gratitude is very important.
3. Realize that nothing is constant.
This goes for life and relationships as well as personal development. If you are not moving forward, you are moving backward. You are either living or dying.
4 Take time to recall past accomplishments - things that made you feel good about
yourself, what you did or how you did something. If you did it before, you can do it
5. Find a mentor and model the things you see in them that appeal to you.
6. Change the way you think and the things you believe - the stories that incessantly play themselves over and over in your head. This mental noise is only “make believe.” The stories are not true!

Bolstering your self esteem and coming to believe (to know!) that you are the crowning jewel of creation does not happen by magic – it takes work. I promise you, though, that when you get “there,” it will feel like magic. It all starts with making a decision to change your internal programming and your results. The choice is YOURS. And YOU ARE WORTH IT!

The wedding ring is special as it is worn for the rest of your life. Hence it should be carefully chosen. The first thing is to prioritize the type of metal that you want. For men, hard metals are preferred like gold, titanium etc and for girls, white gold, silver and platinum are elegant choices. A wedding ring could be a plain simple ring or can be studded with gems, diamonds or can be designer.

A simple plain gold ring has been in vogue over the years and still continues to be so. Diamond rings are the latest craze and diamond branding has added to its immense popularity.
