Your Car is Ruining Your Love Life

Anne Middleton
February 25th, 2015

The dating scene can be excruciating, but you can’t relinquish the quest when you know the perfect girl is out there waiting for you. Lately you’ve been fortunate to meet some lovely ladies. Perhaps your colleague set you up with someone or your Match.com profile piqued her interest. Or, maybe she swiped right on Tinder. However you met, everything seemed to be going superbly. Or, at least it did. After what appeared to be a marvelous first date, she isn’t returning your calls.   What went wrong? Maybe your conversational skills are lacking, or maybe she’s an introvert and feeling a bit sheepish.

Social Media…Benefit or Liability?

Anne Middleton
February 24th, 2015

You confidently strut into your interview and are greeted by a handsome executive clad in a luminous white shirt and perfectly pressed suit, sporting a silk tie and pocket square.  You smile and hold out your hand to engage in a strong, yet not overwhelming handshake when this coiffed male specimen queries you, “Nice to meet you. Has your rash from your spider bite been cured?” You stand motionless in silence with your mouth open down to your knees and your outstretched arm dangling in space, feeling exposed.

Create an Enticing Patio for Spring Entertaining

Anne Middleton
February 24th, 2015

Warm weather is just a calendar page away and it’s almost time to come out of hibernation. Before long, you will be able to escape the sniffling confines of your house to spend time soaking up the sun in your backyard. Before you fire up the grill and postmark the invitations to the first BBQ of the year, you need to spruce up your patio. Home décor boutiques are full of all manner of outdoor items in summery shades and cutsy patterns. But, that stuff is extravagantly priced and too delicate to standup to spring’s torrents of rain and summer’s blazing sun.  Instead, opt for hardy, resilient décor that is both long-lasting and chic.

Hair Raising Troubles

Anne Middleton
February 23rd, 2015

Since kindergarten, these four women have been inseparable and maintained an unbreakable bond.  They have relished in sharing all of life’s key milestones side-by-side. Their lives have been intertwined since learning how to tie their shoes, partaking in driver’s education, voting together for the first time, receiving college acceptance letters (they all attended the same university), first loves, heartaches, countless hair and make-up styles, first apartment, first job …well you get the idea. Now, after 29 years of life’s trials and tribulations, one of these young women is engaged and organizing the wedding of a lifetime.

Happy Birthday, Pisces!

February 19th, 2015

Happy Birthday, Pisces!  Pisces rules the feet, so you’re sure to have lot of shoes—or even a shoe fetish.  For our Piscean shoe fetishists, the poets and dreamers of the zodiac, we’ve come up with a little shopping guide to get some dreamy shoes at a dreamy price.  Violet and soft sea-foam greens are the go-to colors for Pisces, belying the soothing, go-with-the-flow personality  of this mutable water sign.  For baby Pisces, comfort is important as Piscean babies will feel discomfort but not indicate they are uncomfortable.

Fame or Fortune?

Anne Middleton
February 12th, 2015

Over the passage of time, my friends and I frequently inquired to one another, “if you had to choose, would you desire to be famous OR would you rather delight in excess wealth?”  In other words, we pondered the age-old question, “fame or fortune?”” As we have progressed from our teenage years into our twenties, then to our thirties and up, our sentiments on this query have vacillated.   In our pimple-filled adolescent years, we craved fame.  My chums and I imagined how cool it would be to be trailed around town by blinding flashbulbs as we were monitored by the paparazzi.

Calling All Fashionistas

Anne Middleton
January 27th, 2015

Mall shopping got you snoozing?  Thrift store not enticing?  Sometimes it’s hard being a fashionista.  If the brand name designers are disappointing and you’ve got the urge to try to create some of your own pieces, look no further than the auto parts store.  Yes, the auto parts store. Year to year, season to season it seems like the glitterati try to revamp a decade like the 60s or the 80s.  Like resurrecting a zombie, it’s not the same and never will be same.  It’s time to look ahead, into the space age like landing on comets and Mars (and not revamp the 60s moon landing either).

Car Wax: The Answer to Your Household Woes

Anne Middleton
January 9th, 2015

Car wax is not just for your juvenile’s fundraiser car wash.  Many of us barely keep our cars spiffy and clean much less give our cars the waxing they need.  Yet, even if you don’t wax your car enough, don’t let that wax go to waste.  Wax could be your secret weapon to solve a multiple of household conundrums.  Fingerprints—they’re everywhere, and they look nightmarish on stainless steel appliances.  Apply a thin coat and buff it out.   Your appliances will gleam instead of looking like part of a CSI investigation.  Likewise, don’t let faucets become forgettable.  Get that hotel glow with a little waxing now and then.

Emergency Preparation is Key

Anne Middleton
December 29th, 2014

Let’s face it.  Life is not always a fairytale.  Being in the damsel in distress may get you bussed by a fairytale prince, but it’s not awesome when reality bites you in the derriere.  Your car is not a pumpkin carriage or a magic carpet or a chariot drawn by swans.  Last time I checked, I had no fairy godmother floating around whispering “Abracadabra” in my ear and smoothing my difficulties away. So it’s time to be an adult and assess how emergency-ready your vehicle is.
