    Loved the baby name article! It’s fun to see what celebrities have named their kids, although I know there is other evidence that name choices are important–for instance, young people with “old-fashioned” names like Louise or Mabel have been shown to face employment discrimination, and women named Georgia and Virginia are more likely to relocate to the state of that name.

  2. Liz M. says:

    Loved the perfume recommendations, especially the cute G of the Sea mermaid bottle! I don’t wear a lot of perfumes and, because many of them give me headaches, I try to keep to a minimum those which I want to try out, so I always like to find recommendations before I shop!

    In “Style Expert Mary Alice Stephenson: What to Wear Now!” I liked the tip about using body spray rather than spray tan to avoid staining clothing–I didn’t know this!

    Eternity Summer sounds great. I’m sure it smells wonderful since the original is a classic. I wear VS Tease and Britney Spears perfume (don’t laugh) and Philosophy Amazing Grace.

    We’re always ready for a cup of coffee! THanks for the giveaway.

    I love the image used for the “How to Deal with Difficult People” article! I thought the tip to tell someone if they’ve interrupted you is really great and something I don’t normally think about, usually I try to keep talking but it makes a lot of sense to just state the obvious: “You interrupted me.” Thanks!

    • Lol! Thanks, I though the lions were a good pick for that article. What you said is very true, it’s so hard to think on your feet when someone else is being verbally aggressive. Glad you liked the tip and thanks for commenting!

    loved your ‘great harvest bread’ article…thanks for the starbucks giveaway 😉

  8. Huh. I never thought about getting a difficult person to sit down with me when trying to deal with them.

    I need to see if there are any Great Harvest Bread Cos near me! Pumpkin Chocolate Chip! That sounds awesome! *drooling*. 🙂

    • It’s truly divine! If you can’t find it, I highly recommend adding Chocolate Chips to the next bread you make (if you do make bread)! I hadn’t thought of it until I tried the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread.

    I love summer because I love sandals and I love wedges the best! Great fashion article!

    I kinda like Keith Urban’s choice, Faith 🙂
    Pilot Inspector is the name given by the My Name Is Earl star, don’t know his name.

    • I actually think the name Faith is very pretty! 🙂 The other one I love is Grace. What I thought was really interesting about Nicole Kidman/Keith Urban’s choice was the pairing of Faith and Sunday as sisters 🙂 Not that there’s anything wrong with it either though, just more unique than say Jane and Mary!

      Pilot Inspector…I know that one! Lol! I wonder why he chose that?

      • faith says:

        I can’t imagine a good reason to name your son that. Not crazy about Apple either. Maybe someone should name their child Tomato Paste.

  13. faith says:

    I liked the article about the breathing exercises to help you relax. I’m not sure I should have been reading and doing the exercise at the same time. But in my Psychology class I learned that this is a very helpful exercise
