I recently wrote an article about the in-fashion of cuffs for women. Let’s not leave the men out. No matter what their age this one single piece shows that he has style and is not afraid to show it. They are perfect for both the young and, shall we say, seasoned, men in your life. With both Father’s Day and graduations just around the corner, these may just…Continue

“Weight can be inherited, but it can also be contagious.” -Brian Wansink author or “Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think”
Brian Wansink, an author of over 100 academic articles and books on eating behavior, has found that when we are with people we enjoy, such as friends, we often lose track of how much, how fast, and how long we are eating for. It seems when we are with others we tend to mimic the speed at which they eat and how much…Continue

I love that term. But I can take no credit for it. Me-Covery is actually marketing-speak. It’s a term coined by well-known marketing firm, Saatchi & Saatchi, to describe how consumers are now looking for ways to take care of themselves (a recovery of self), especially following the financial and emotional hardships caused by our Great Recession.

Z is such a girl.

The most important piece of advice I can give you is to not apologize for leaving your career to raise your children. Be confident in presenting your skills and be assertive about what you have to offer a prospective employer. Finding a…Continue

As a polyglot I love learning about other cultures and languages. Recently I had the honor to read and review Noa Nimrodi’s book Birds Can Fly So Can I. After learning that the book was originally written in Hebrew I wanted to find out more about this intriguing author.

May is here, and the celebration has begun. The decorations are up, the flags are hanging and the excitement is palpable.
It's racetime - and that's a big deal at the Majeske household. The Indianapolis 500 is just around the corner, and for the men in the household, big and little, the excitement is almost too much to bear.
Conversations revolve around Will Power and Dario Franchitti. There's analyses of who might win, who will do well, who will make the race and who won't.…Continue
