The Concept Of "Marrying Well"

If you're married, or single and of marriageable age, then chances are that you've been told to "marry well" several times. But what does "marrying well" really mean? Ah! That's the million dollar question. Let's dive in shall we?



Absolutely! We're So Excited!




A big thank you to everyone...


...that heeded our request for thoughts/opinion about the blog. We got a wealth of information, especially from people who opted to give their feedback privately. We have taken all suggestions under advisement and we are pretty excited about using them. We may not use all, but we'll definitely be implementing some of them. Thank you once again.

Beef Soup For The Cold

Know the book series - Chicken soup for the soul? Well, I've adapted that title to suit my own needs right now. You guessed it! I came down with a cold which if you really think about it, is strange because it's like 26degrees outside! Is anyone else having this problem?



I'm supposed to be tucked into bed, with lots of fluids but here I am blogging. Oops! At least I have the fluids part down. Having me a steaming bowl of spicy beef soup which I can't really taste because of my cold but I'm pretty sure it's absolutely delish! For one thing, I cooked it myself! Well, there are no veggies and stuff in it so, I guess it's just beef and spices in stock but that's a really long non-sexy name. So yeah, I'm sticking with "beef soup".




Anyhoo, since I'm here instead of in bed because... sleep is for the weak! (just kidding), could someone please tell me what the heck is going on with Kanye West? He  seems to be a lot more in the news these days, mostly over some rants about people. Don't believe me? Check herehere and here. Also here is what Chelsea Handler had to say about him. That's right, TMZ weighed in here too. I think he probably needs some Chicken soup for his soul. Or maybe just some of my beef soup will do. Hehehe


Alrighty, gotta hop into bed.

Bigger, Louder, More Teeth...

I finally got to see Jurassic World yesterday and that's where I got this post title. (Yeah, yeah, I'm late to the party. Get over it) Apparently, no one is impressed by the regular Dinosaurs anymore. They are now looked upon like Elephants in the city zoo. So, to stay relevant and keep their business afloat, the creators of the Dinosaurs needed to create one bigger and louder, with more teeth... 


...leading to the birth of a monstrous blend of a raptor, frogs, mosquitoes and whatever else they used in completing the DNA - the Indominus Rex that fed on his own sibling. Yeeesh! Am I the only one who sees the similarity of this description with Men of this generation? Oh yes, and Women! And did you see what happened with that bigger, louder chameleon of a monster? Beware people! Don't get bigger, don't get louder and my my, whatever you do, do not - I repeat - DO NOT grow teeth over the number allowed by law nature. LOL! While we are at it, let's also stop being chameleons and feeding on each other... I guess that's why we are becoming more and more obese (Don't even get me started on the teeth). Okay I kid, I kid. I'll get serious.

We really are getting bigger, louder and yes we feed on each other but, I'm more concerned about the bigger part. Are you getting bigger? What are you doing about it? You can't just stop at saying it or thinking it, you have to do it. Just do it! I tell you, being fit is the new sexy! Forget all the excuses of not having any fitness equipment or a gym membership. You can work out at home without any equipment. Click here to review the 7 day home fitness challenge we did sometime back and make the decision now to be fit. We'll be having another fitness challenge soon. Get ready!!!

On that note, get up right now and do 100 jumping jacks and 30 squats. You got this! Put some music on and just go for it! I'm doing mine right away.

Don't forget to drink lots of water!
