Brazilians in Babylon

I thought it would be fun to research the history of “Brazilians,” since this month’s issue focuses on women in history and so many women get waxed nowadays. I have made a career of performing Brazilian Bikini Waxes on tens of thousands of women in the Rochester area and am fascinated with how far back this ritual dates. Brazilian waxing became popular in the United States in the late 1980s and early 1990s, but it is not a new trend. On the contrary, this practices dates as far back as 4,000 years ago.

REGULARS, UNRAVELED

Table For 1

You are a woman and you are hungry and alone.  How do you feel about going out to eat by yourself? There are a bunch of reasons why someone would be eating in a restaurant alone, and none of them are related to the reasons why I typically choose not to eat out by myself.  I can count on one hand how many times in my life I have ordered a meal at a table and eaten alone at a restaurant.  Guess what? The only person impacted by that decision is me and why am I choosing to miss out?

Natural Beauty Without Compromise

The summer season is closely approaching. While everyone loves the sun, sand, and sitting by the pool, this is the time of year when many people experience extreme damage to their hair. The sun changes coloring. The oxidization destroys your vibrant coloring, tones it to a brassy hue and dulls the natural shine. The heat can degrade protein which otherwise protects your hair.  UV rays are alos damaging. The chlorine in pools and salt water can also cause hair issues. Your hair is at risk of becoming frizzy and brittle. How do we protect our hair when we are having fun in the sun?

Senior Isolation and Loneliness

My life has been filled with loved ones, companionship, social causes and a career that has kept my mind and soul in a state overload (in a good way).  Life has been filled with a hundred reasons to get up in the morning and a hundred new reasons every day.  But some days, I think about what it will be like when I retire and life slows down to the point that I can do all those projects around my house, or I could simply sleep in until the sun is up.  We all hope our retirement will be a time when we can travel, watch our grandkids more often and volunteer a couple of days a week to give back to society.

Human Trafficking

Somewhere in the Greater Rochester Area right now.

  • A woman is selling herself on Lyell Avenue and knows no one will provide her with food, shelter, or the drugs she’s addicted to if she doesn’t earn enough money this way.
  • Someone is working in a restaurant from before it opens until after it closes, every day. They believe they are paying a debt they owe to someone who helped them get into the country, but somehow the debt keeps growing, not shrinking, every week.
  • A teenager in the suburbs is being sold through an online classified site by a pimp.
  • A child in elementary school is forced to engage in sexual acts, which are filmed and sold online.

What If?

Life’s plan –  Two words that mean different things for everyone   The concept of a life plan suggests that during our lives, there is a script or a series of phases we should expect to go through that will result in success, fulfillment and satisfaction.  Consider the definition of each:

Life: the period of time for which we are alive

Plan: an intention or decision about what one is going to do.Continue reading

The Women Behind the Badge

We’ve all heard the phrase, “There’s something about a man in uniform.”  For those who have done nothing more than appreciate the view, there is a lot more to consider before making a decision to be a part of all the uniform entails. The two remarkable resilient women you are about to meet will tell you that being the wife of a police officer is not for the weak, self-centered, needy, clingy, insecure, or high maintenance type of woman.
