Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Putting The Eye Back In MelanysGuydlines: Dr. Stephen Cohen Of Doctor My Eyes

Happy Friday! I know it has been a few weeks since I have written a post. This is the longest time since starting my blog that I haven’t posted and it feels a little weird and a little eye opening (pun intended). I had an accident on my way to the Blogpaws conference two weeks ago. I was rushing because I am always totally over-committed and stabbed myself in my left eye with a round bristle brush. It hurt. Badly. I was and am mad at myself that I created this injury and tried to shake it off the best… Continue Reading

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

It’s My Birthday And I Will Do What I Want To

Another year. Another Birthday. But, this year is going to be the best yet because I have been reciting my mantra and putting these things into place. It is one thing to say them and it is another thing to actually do what you say. So, for my Birthday this year: – I am not doing anything I don’t actually want to do. – I am not feeling obligated to anyone. – I am only doing what makes me happy. So, if you missed it here is the mantra…… Sound like a plan? I do have a little wish though…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

Happy Mother’s Day: I Won

Happy Mother's Day - I won

It is Mother’s Day weekend and I know I am giving away a Mother’s Day prize pack but I won the ultimate prize with my mommy! You probably know her, as she is my biggest fan and supporter. The only woman in my life that I love with all of my heart, can count on no matter what, tells me the truth even though it sometimes hard to hear, loves me unconditionally and my BEST friend. She is there for me any time of day or night and is always ready to fly out and spend time with her baby… Continue Reading

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

3 Pieces of Relationship Advice You Should Never Follow

Love this super snarky post from Laura! She is really getting the hang of the snark! Well done and great tips here. I would have been equally annoyed with this guy and probably would have told him where he could go before he proceeded with point two. Take it away. Last night I came face to face with my first ever real life ‘Life Coach’. And I can quite honestly say that I could have gone my entire life without meeting him, or any other life coach for that matter, and been perfectly happy. But this article is not about… Continue Reading

Find Gift Inspiration for Friends with My Guide

Find Gift Inspiration for Friends with My Guide

It has been a few weeks since we have enjoyed a post from Laura. Happy to share this great post for friend gift inspo. BTW: she mentions jewelry here and you should stay tuned for an exciting jewelry announcement next week! Getting gifts for friends can be easy, or it can take you forever.

I love shopping for my besties, but wanting to make them happy means it… Continue Reading

Social Media “No-No’s” and Pet Peeves

Social Media “No-No’s” and Pet Peaves

Let’s face it. The majority of us spend a lot of time online. I think I might spend more than the average person (and Teddy Brewski more than the average puppy) on some form of electronic device. To be fair, it is my job and there are many things I love about being fully online and engaged with people from all over the world on my computer or phone. However there are some “no-no’s” that people do online that drive me up the wall. 1. Being a flat out nasty, hater or troll. We are very lucky to enjoy our… Continue Reading

We Are Better Than This

Violent protesting is not OK. Freedom of speech is OK. Come on America. Be better than th

I don’t cover politics on my blog or on my social media channels. MelanysGuydlines was created as a cathartic outlet for snarky jokes and laughter. Don’t we have enough to deal with on a daily basis? MG should be a place to come and escape issues we face in our daily lives. But, today I wanted to share something on the blog because it should be shared here too. First, I tweeted this. Second, I shared on Facebook and some moron replied to the post with such a rude comment that I won’t repeat it here. What I said in… Continue Reading
