You don’t have to agree on everything in order to enjoy a satisfying relationship. However, it’s important to align on big issues or at least have a plan to work around major differences.

Psychologist Dr. Sydney Miller On Why Freeing Yourself From The Past Is The First Step To Surviving & Thriving From A Divorce

Is The Hourglass Mommy Makeover The New Mommy Makeover?

The addition of fat to the butt and the surrounding areas gives a more feminine curve to the lower part of the body. While it may seem counterintuitive that adding fat can create a more desirable shape, it most certainly can.
