Did you know that there is actually a full week dedicated to being single? You may be surprised to find out there is a singles week .Oh yes, National Singles Week run September 21st, 2008 through September 27th, 2008!
National Singles Week was started in Ohio back in 1984 to appreciate the growing ranks of unmarried Americans, who are now 92 million strong and growing! What are you doing this week?
The time has come to celebrate singlehood! There is nothing wrong with you because you are single, so why not celebrate? These days two out of every three single people have never wed.
Three easy and breezy things you can do to rock being single:
Get a Singelringen. - A Singelringen (means single ring in Swedish) is basically a ring for single people. According to Singleringen: “there are engagement rings and wedding rings, but there was no such thing as a ring for single men and women. If anyone needs to signal one’s civil status, it’s a Single”. I love my Singelringen, it’s stylish and goes with everything. I also like to boast and brag about it cause it symbolizes being single and proud ( did I mention it's also wore by alot of celebrities).
Make a date with your single friends. - Go out with your single girlfriends and toast to being single. Share funny stories and the glories of singlehood. If you can not get your single friends together, find a singles event to check out. Attend with your head high in the know that single people are 92 million strong,
Be adventurous- Simply make a deal with yourself to try new things this week to celebrate your independence! Go to a new restaurant, attend an event you would never go to in a million years, go on a flirting spree, your opportunities are endless. You have a whole week to play with.
Above all else rock being single! It is a luscious status to be in!
Until next time,

Since I promote luscious living to women, I am always asked what make a luscious life. The answer to that that question can vary, but one main ingredient to luscious living is finding your j-spot…your "joy spot". I coined the term j-spot cause it sounds like the term g-spot. You should pay just as much attention to your j-spot as you do your g-spot and watch as your world fills with laughter and light!
Your j-spot is that place in your soul that tingles whenever you feel joy. Do you know where j-spot is? If it has been awhile since you have tapped into your j-spot, I challenge you to tap back into it. There are some of you may not even know where your j-Spot is anymore, I encourage you to find it.
You are entitled to feel joy. When you came into this world, you were destined to have and be your best. Stop just going through the motions during the day. Do at least one thing a day that brings you joy. Come on, I dare you. It can be something small like taking a walk, getting the grande at Starbucks instead of the tall or go big and book that dream vacation you have always wanted to take. Girl go for yours and may your jspot overflow!
Til next time,

I am big on promoting luscious living, but looking luscious does not
mean you have empty your bank account. Just like Tyra Banks, I don't believe
in spending alot of money on clothes. Any woman on a tight budget can look
like she spent big bucks on her wardrobe as long as she knows where to
shop. A few ideas get your wardrobe together:
Sale Racks- Hit the sale racks of your favorite stores first then work your
way around to the rest of the store. You just might find what you are
looking for on the sale racks. Better yet, that great shirt you had your
eye on may now be half off.
“Bang for Your Buck” Stores- Think Target, Payless, Steve and Barry’s, etc. Have you noticed that big time designers are getting the hint and putting out affordable clothing lines? Even celebrities like Venus William and Sarah Jessica Parker are getting it, which is why Steve and Barry’s is so popular. Have you checked out the clothes at Target lately or browsed in Payless. These stores have stepped up their game and other stores are following suit.
Clothing Swaps- Talk about the newest rage! Clothing swaps have become popular all over the country. Not only is good for your bank account, it’s also good for the environment. You can put together a swap for you and your friends. All you have to do is pick a date and time, tell your friends to gather their gently worn clothes that they no longer want, bring them to the swap and get then everyone gets to swapping’. You now have clothes that are new to you. Donate any left over items to the organization of your choice.
One more thing to remember: just because something is on sale does not mean you have to get it. This is how bad clothes happen to good people. Flip though magazines to get ideas on how to put together outfits, that way you can create fabulous different looks.
Until next time,
