Hot, Hot, Hot!...I keep on hearing men express (over the past 13 years) how important of a quality this is for them in a woman. Yet this seems to be a quality I've found lacking in many a "good girl." So let's explore why this is important, what is considered hot, as well as how you might go about getting in touch with your inner HOTTIE!

Why You Need to Accept Stress, Not Eliminate It 

Great news for the upcoming Holiday Season! New research is finding that it is your attitude towards stress that makes the difference rather than your actual stress level, and I agree. I have always been good at dealing with stress and not only am I psychologically healthier for it, but still look younger than my years. In this workshop, we will also explore what are effective and ineffective ways of dealing with stress.
