I had plans to go to the beach today to meet up with some friends. But The weather is calling for thunderstorms and showers, so my beach day is ruined. I had planned on getting a good nap while feeling the ocean breeze and catching up on my magazines. But since that’s not happening I’ll probably be home cleaning and putting together a bookcase. (Yay fun!)
Hopefully I can still catch up on some of my magazines. In the meantime, here’s some of the great things I read earlier this week.
My favorite article of the week is called 7 Things we need to hear more than I love you. Read it. Great post. I love you is always great to hear, but these things count just as much.
Now, if you didn’t hear any of those seven things and rarely heard “I Love You” the relationship may not have survived. Here’s 7 Signs the way you’re dealing with your breakup is unhealthy. Don’t be one of THOSE girls.
I usually hate those articles titled “If your guy does this, he might be the one” or “Five Ways to Know If Your Relationship Will Last” because some people take those articles as bibles and then when the relationship fails, they are lost. But this article “If Your Guy Talks about This He’s Serious About You” actually brings up some true and valid points. #iApprove
Every woman hates pap smears and UTIs. I tried to get out of my pap smear this year and my doctor was not having it. He was actually excited about it. That’s when I had to ask would he be that excited about a prostate exam. Mood totally changed. HA! Here’s 5 Foods that Fight UTIs.
Earlier this week I was reading this article about Upper East Side wives and the bonuses they receive from their husbands. Apparently some wives get anesthetic shots to numb their feet in order to wear high heels. (Never heard of that, but that’s not a bad idea [IMO]) Here’s 7 High Heel Hacks Every Woman Should Know.
I recently read an article from Self Magazine on how to Truly Clean Your Sweaty Gym Clothes and was surprised to learn there are actually sports detergents. Then yesterday a friend shared with me this article Sweaty Gym Clothes, Ewwww!, which offers alternatives to buying a sports detergent. So you choose which option is better for you. Either way, don’t show up at the gym stinky BEFORE you work out. I will talk about you. And tweet about you. (no lie!)

How many of us have RSVP’ed yes to an event knowing we probably won’t be going? Or you are asked to bring something and you show up empty-handed (RUDE!)? Recently, my mom told me about a pot-luck dinner she hosted at her house. One couple showed up and said to my mom, “We have the salad in the car. Do you want us to bring it in?” (insert blank face here) If you are invited to a pot-luck, you DO NOT show up empty-handed. Even if it’s last minute, grab a bottle of wine or a soda. Bring something. I really love the 8 RSVP Mistakes You Need to Stop Making.
