HOW TO TEST YOUR MAN!

What he says about other women and what it says about him as a potential partner!  By our self-help expert and dating coach Dr Pam Spurr If you’re single and dating, or maybe just met someone, it’s confusing about how to tell what a man’s really like. Because we know everyone puts their best foot forward at first. So is he as good as he seems? Sadly you might discover down the line he’s actually not so nice. With hindsight you realise you missed signals showing he wasn’t worth your time.  But now it’s too late, you’ve been hurt or it’s just not been a good experience. Many women tell me if only they’d seen it coming they wouldn’t have… Read More →

Romance on hold – Parents at Work!

    The dynamic has changed with the arrival of E and me and husband are so exhausted the mere thought of a date night it sometimes makes us even sleepier. ‘Want the kids overnight mum? Sure!’ Then our plans for a wild night, to go out and paint the town red slowly fizzle out and we end up at the cinema scoffing sugary treats to stay awake and watch a film like ‘normal’ couples. Ahhhh  those 1st dates we used to have – remember them?   We secretly hope we have enough energy to get home and….well you know. We now retire to bed as soon as the house looks vaguely tidy (I can’t see this changing for another 15… Read More →

The Big Three

Apologies for the gap in blogs but I’m now back blogging on a weekly basis, hooray!! So as you all know I love lifting! I love squats, bench and deadlifts aka The Big Three. Not only are these lifts the most awesome lifts of all time but the benefits (aesthetically and physically) are off the chain!  The best thing about these three lifts is that they hit multiple muscle groups and they give you the biggest bang for your buck! Maximum results with minimum time spent in the gym. The Squat  The ultimate lift for leg strength! Increase strength, size, power, agility and explosiveness and build yourself a hot ass and killer pins! Legs that make people stop and stare are… Read More →

That time of the month

So last week was awesome. I hit a 100 kg squats for reps, deadlifts were feeling awesome and even my benching wasn’t as horrific as it normally is, thinks were looking good! So  this week I have to see how heavy I can lift on all three lifts, it didn’t go well!! What was I doing wrong? Why were my hips so freaking sore? Why did I want to go home and cry?! Was I having a nervous breakdown???? No!!! Turns out mother nature was at work and ruining my training by inflicting a period on me! I felt horrifically weak, everything seemed tedious and very emotional and I seemed to have ballooned into an exact replica of the little… Read More →

Dr Pam:I can’t please him!

Dear Dr Pam, Hello I have been with my boyfriend for a year. He has been doing all the work in the bed. When I try to do some of it and get on top of him he says it is uncomfortable. I want to please him but I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Can you help me???? Dear “What am I doing wrong”,   Okay, let’s get something straight – enough of the “doing something wrong” attitude. One easy route to stress in the bedroom is to believe there are ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways of doing things. Start thinking in terms of what works for you both – what works is the key word.   Even then, what works… Read More →

Dr Pam: Not orgasmic

Dear Dr Pam, I’m 21 and lost my virginity on my last birthday. Second boyfriend later and I’ve still never had an orgasm. Even by myself I find it hard to orgasm, maybe because when I was younger I was discouraged from talking about anything sexual and my own shyness makes me think I shouldn’t be looking up how to solve this. I try to let go, especially when my boyfriend has a go but I’m that much of a control freak that it eventually gets too intense for me and I have to ask him to stop. He’s the first in a long time that hasn’t seen my lack of climaxes as a challenge, and we do have really… Read More →

Well in typical Kardashian style, we can expect lots of figure hugging LBDs, (perfect for Christmas of course) monochrome, femme peplum cuts, jumpsuits galore, so all in all, plenty to… Read More →

AW14 makeup

The latest trend to watch out for on the catwalks, doesn’t just translate to your wardrobe, but also your makeup bag. Yes the time has come to update your makeup look, to see you through the winter, and this season its all about teaming a nude, matte face with a bold statement brow (a la Cara Delavigne) as seen on the catwalks.  So how do we get the nude look, without actually going nude with the makeup (I can hear the sigh of relief girls, you still wear makeup, just less of it) so there is no need to get drastic, lets see how we get the understated look just right. Remember, this look is not about having a flat… Read More →
