"There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness." ~ Lady Blessington
Are you feeling like life after a toxic relationship has noting to offer?
- Are you bored and feeling kinda ugly and unapproachable lately?
- Are you tired of feeling unattractive?
Do you wanna bring out your inner goddess? Do you want to bring your sexy back, or to find it for the first time?
Good news - I'm a total nerd who loves to study the science behind human psychology, including attraction and how it works. That's why I'm always paying attention and asking questions.
Today, I'm sharing something that answers the question every woman wants answered, but few are brave enough to really ask.
And many women have a different idea of what men consider hot. That' why I asked my focus group of about 150 people what they think makes a woman hot.
Just as some similarities in perceptions showed through, there were some very marked differences between men and women on what they think makes a women hot. I'll explain all that for you - and more - in this video.
So there's a new thing happening in the medical world, and I'm not really sure what to think about it. Maybe it's not THAT new, and maybe you've heard of it. But here's the thing - it's kind of like a face-lift, but for your vagina.
How do I put this delicately...? I guess I can't do better than this: the procedure is designed to help rejuvenate the vagina. Ahem.
At first glance, you find yourself feeling a little judgy - after all, who would have vanity procedures done to her girly parts? Doesn't that feel a bit...shallow?
I sorta did at first. But that was before I learned that the procedure is actually something that helps all kinds of women with all kinds of issues, including incontinence, vaginal tightening and improving sensation and function.
So the procedure turns out to be less of a procedure and more of an energy medicine, from what I understand.
"ThermiVa is a new form of energy medicine that uses radio frequency heat therapy to promote collagen synthesis, resulting in shrinkage and tightening of female tissues," according to the website. The process is "non-surgical, non-invasive, and pain-free and is smart alternative to more invasive procedures."
What does that mean, exactly?
It's "an in-office, non-surgical procedure that uses radio frequency energy to gently heat tissue through an "S" shaped hand piece. Heat and energy shrinks skin and tightens external and internal vulvovaginal tissue. The hand piece features disposable applicator with gentle curves to provide comfort. No downtime is necessary. The new tissue will be tighter and younger looking due to new collagen growth and thicker skin resulting from the application of radio frequency to the area."
From what I've learned, this is an ideal treatment for "women who wish to tighten and tone their genital tissues to improve sexual activity and personal comfort."
People who opt for this treatment:
- Are experiencing vaginal laxity after pregnancy and childbirth
- Wish to reduce vaginal dryness and loss of vaginal tone after menopause
- Want to improve urinary stress incontinence
- Any woman who would like a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
- The best way to find out if you could benefit from ThermiVa is to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Shieh.
So what do you think about this option? Would you do it? Share your thoughts in the comments and let me know what you think!

It's summertime and that means it's time for fun in the sun!
That's all good, but nobody wants skin cancer - so don't forget to protect your skin and the skin of your family. You've probably read the headlines that have recently put sun safety back in the news for better (and worse). And while public awareness has increased regarding the risks of excessive sun exposure, there is still a long way to go.
One major breakthrough is progress on a personalized vaccine for melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.
At the same time, skin cancer has increased among all ages. One study found that seniors in Britain are 7 times more likely to develop melanoma compared to 40 years ago.
Forget About 'Safer' Tanning!
If you're wondering whether tanning beds are a safer alternative, think again. Many doctors now recommend strengthening the warning signs to say they cause cancer.
Fortunately, most of the risks of sun exposure can be eliminated through healthy sun habits. Try these steps for protecting yourself and your children.
Sun Safety Tips for Kids
It's especially important to minimize early sun exposure. The greatest risk factor for skin cancer is the sunlight you receive before age 20.
1. Keep babies in the shade. Doctors advise against using sunscreen on babies less than 6 months old because they may be sensitive to the chemicals they contain. That means infants need to be kept out of direct sunlight. Dress your baby in a hat and clothes that provide full coverage. Buy a stroller with a canopy and treat your car windows with UV film.
2. Watch your toddler. Toddlers are too busy exploring the world to worry about staying under a beach umbrella. In addition to sunscreen, keep an eye on how much sun they're catching.
3. Educate your teens. Teens may believe that tanning is glamorous. Discuss the long-term effects and go shopping for high fashion sunhats.
4. Talk with your child's school. How can your kids reapply their sunscreen if their school classifies it as a medication that requires special forms? Join with other parents to encourage reasonable policies.
Sun Safety Tips for All Ages
Managing sun exposure is a life-long concern. The effects are cumulative, so it pays to be extra careful if you already had sunburns as a child.
1. Apply sunscreen correctly. It takes a full ounce of sunscreen to cover the average body. Remember the spots that often get missed like ears and the sides of your torso and legs.
2. Avoid the hottest hours. Midday sun is the strongest. If possible, arrange your schedule to be indoors between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
3. Wear protective clothing. While some clothing is advertised as providing extra sun protection, the FDA typically does not regulate those claims. You can achieve the same results for less money with any garment that adequately covers your skin.
4. Put on sunglasses. Your eyes need shade as well. Check that the label indicates broad-spectrum protection when buying both sunscreen and sunglasses.
5. Be vigilant year round. Forget about slacking off in winter. Just like sand and concrete, snow reflects the sun, and you can become sunburned on cloudy days.
6. Spray it on. If you still want to brown your skin, spray products are a smart solution. Test a spot on your arm first to ensure you aren't allergic to a product before spreading it all over.
7. Inspect your body. Regular skin examinations are essential for both children and adults because most melanomas can be seen by the naked eye, and cured when caught in the early stages. Pay attention to moles and any changes in your skin. See your doctor promptly to discuss any concerns, and find the right level of protection based on your family's lifestyle.
Enjoy the sun and take in the vitamin D your body needs without increasing your risk for premature aging and skin cancer. Wear sunscreen, avoid the hottest hours, and practice other simple and healthy sun habits.
I don't know about you, but personally, I prefer to wear a little makeup when I'm out in the world, and while I tend to minimize it in the summertime, I still want to offer Mother Nature a hand sometimes. (more…)
