I am judging you if you are barking orders at your partner. That person is not your slave. Their role is to help you, support you and guide you. There was a time, before stress, when you were loving and kind, which is why you are together. Get back to that. Your life will be better.

Finding the right fit when you have a bigger chest is not fun. So many women have commented to me, "You are so lucky to have a chest." Not when it comes to finding clothes that fit. But as the fashion industry continues to expand its vision on body shapes, now too, there are styles to accommodate bigger chested women.

Not only am I a liberal-minded, strongly opinionated woman, but I'm a fully conscious being with a beating heart, eyes and a f***ing conscience. Somehow, though, we've managed to turn the continually debated subject matter into something people shy away from breaching and exploring. Something easily misinterpreted as "Latin for armpit hair."

With the chilly weather outside, this time of year layering options are really popular for yoga. Choose pieces that you can remove as you warm up once you're on the mat. Pairing a strappy bra with a tank and covering up with a long sleeve tee allows you to peel off the layers as you begin moving through your poses and start to sweat.

Don't laugh, but reading glasses have become a key part of my style. The first time I picked up a pair of reading glasses (after 40), everything changed (for the better). No more straining to read or having to increase the zoom view on my computer screen.

I remember the day my agent told me to lose 2 inches off my hips and that my thighs were getting too big. She suggested that I try yoga to tone down. I was devastated. She didn't see how hard I was trying to be thin. I was dieting and hardly eating just to keep my stick-thin frame. It was then that I decided to give up on modeling because I was ruining my body.

I used to think of a New Years' Resolution as one big promise that you made for yourself. The problem was, it never worked for me. I never kept that one big promise. I find by writing lists of my past and future accomplishments, I put myself in the mindset that is more realistic in my life.

This Christmas, their laser-beam eyes are focused on you. You're the dish of the day. You're gonna be stuffed with advice and ladled with criticism. Because they can't stand themselves. Deep in their souls, they feel like failures. What better antidote than subtly belittling you via the mechanism of meddling.

It's that awkward time of year when the weather seems to be having daily mood swings. Just as soon as it's getting warmer, it turns around and bites you with some cold. These abrupt weather changes can cause symptoms of the cold and flu, and we risk not only our own functionality and health, but that of others too.

How is fear deciding your fate? How is it affecting the decisions you make, the paths you take or don't take? Light a candle and reflect. Or take a night drive and think. It's funny -- as soon as you start to see fear clearly, it looks a lot less scary. So take a deep breath and stare it down.

The only thing that keeps me wearing skirts in the winter when it is cold and wet, are tights. Leggings are great too. Sometimes, I will ride my bike in my leggings and then when I arrive to a restaurant throw on a skirt over the leggings and I am good for dinner or a night out.
