It’s a Good Year for a Mommy Makeover

Is Your Butt Too Small? The Brazilian Butt Lift Can Help!

The curves of a woman’s body can help define her. Among the traits that set some women apart is the butt. Having a large, round, and defined bottom has become a goal for many women.

Be Thankful for Your Fat!

The holidays are approaching quickly, which means some of us may pack on extra pounds. Stress and overeating often contribute to weight gain during the holiday season. The more fat we gain, the tighter our clothing gets, especially when the years keep passing by and the aging process takes hold. As people age, their metabolisms slow down, making it easy to gain weight and harder to lose fat. Plus, it doesn’t help that we consume foods packed high with fructose corn syrup, sucralose, and other unnatural substances. The ingredients found in these “terrible foods” trick the body into storing more...
