The Most Important Ingredient to Happy Relationships

This post by Laura today is spot on! The reason I haven’t been posting as often is that I am taking time for myself! Time to love myself! Words of wisdom in this post. Take it away….. Relationships are a lot like recipes, in that there is a recipe for relationship success and there’s a recipe for relationship misery.

As I sit here on the eve of 2018, I take time to review my past New Years Eve posts full “guydlines-isms” and it is not surprising that I agree with 100% of what I have had to say in the past. I told you many times I am smarter than I look. Right? It is time for us to ring in another year and I am very excited and optimistic for 2018 (it may just be because I am cleansing and a little light headed but whatever). First, I want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity… Continue Reading

What Women Really Want In Life And Love

Thanks to Laura for this great post! Take it away…. At a time where blogs and online publication are full of articles designed to advise women on how to behave in their relationships, it seems important to remind yourself of what you want. You live in a complex world that is in constant evolution.

Life is complicated. Raising a great dog doesn’t have to be.

Life is complicated. Raising a great dog doesn’t have to be.

Thank you to Rob Steinberg for this guest post. He is a fellow Wildcat and dog fan, especially a Teddy Brewski fan. Read this because life is complicated but raising a great dog does not have to be with the Puptimize App. It’s Teddy Brewski and Giggi Vanderpump approved so you know its good. Take it away Rob…… It’s great being Teddy Brewski. His days are filled with people letting him know how cute he is (even though he already knows) and incredibly relaxing afternoon naps in the sun.

Fashion: No Mo Boho

Fashion: No Mo' Boho

Attention Fashion Designers: I am over the “Coachella – inspired” BoHo BS look! 1. Coachella did begin as a concert or a place to hear GOOD music? Correct? Not as a fashion statement. 2. Boho is a no go on most. Word to most – you look like a couch. 3. I left my heart in SF a while ago but pretty sure it wasn’t the 60s. Please! I am so over this look and it is completely contradictory to my ROCKER music taste too btw. So, bring back glamour! I am not sure I would wear my derby day… Continue Reading

A Gift Guy-de: Buying For Men Is Tricky

A Gift Guy-de: Buying For Men Is Tricky

Read this awesome gift “Guy-de” for what to buy men from Laura! She did it again with some great tips. Now, get shopping ladies. Buying gifts for men is tricky. Perhaps it’s only a stereotype or perhaps it’s the way we’ve been brainwashed to view shopping through advertising, but it often seems like the options for men are so scarce, other than clothing or technology. There comes a point, of course, when you find yourself growing tired of buying the same sort of thing for birthdays, Christmases and perhaps even anniversaries, if the man in question is your significant other….

My Resolutions: Guyd For 2017

Take time to stop and smell the roses.

This year I am going to try a few new things. I am going to stick with these promises to myself because that is what resolutions are – aren’t they? I better or I am going to be really upset with myself. Plus, I will have no one to blame but me. 1. Make appointments in my calendar for “ME” time. Seriously. I have two “meetings” a week labeled in my calendar as “Zumba” and at least one titled “Golf Lesson”. I work hard and these “meetings” help with my sanity. The only way I can consistently attend them is… Continue Reading
