Tim Gunn Says Hillary Clinton Confused About Her Gender

by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman

Hillary With her pink jacket and pearls, Hillary Clinton looked both feminine and professional when she visited the Norwegian Embassy this week.

And while fashion was likely the last thing on her mind, her choice of outfit could not have been more well-timed given that she was the subject of cutting criticism from Project Runway judge Tim Gunn.

In an interview with George Lopez, the fashion guru, accused Mrs Clinton of favouring unflattering mannish clothes, and that she should use her position to send a more positive message about American fashion.

He said: 'She's the Secretary of State, she's a former senator from New York, she's a former first lady. Why must she dress that way? 

'I think she's confused about her gender. Tim, maybe she's not the only one.

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality.  Linda Franklin says,"there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible". Linda's book, Don't Ever Call Me Ma'am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.

Mr. Big Or Mr. Sensible - You Get To Choose

by Linda Franklin - The Real Cougar Woman

Mr. Big Mr. Big has money, ambition and good looks, but is that what Real Cougars really want?  It might be our fantasy, but as we mature we realize other qualities matter a lot more.

Researchers found that younger women are much more likely to be seduced by a high-flier but more seasoned women come to value more deep-rooted qualities like reliability, friendship, understanding and a man who loves us for who we are - warts and all.

A survey of 9,000 women aged 16 to 75 found that wealth and ambition in a man were the two favourite qualities for younger women, with half admitting they look for one who can afford to lavish them with expensive amenities.

Sexercise - A Great Way To Burn Calories

by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman

Sex Women are more likely to have sex after a long day if they think it will help them lose weight.

Women are resorting to sex to stay fit because dollars are scarce and gym memberships are expensive.  Drastic times call for drastic measure so yes, women are resorting to sex to burn calories.

Research shows 76 per cent of women are more inclined to weave the nocturnal workout into their routines if they think they will burn calories.

Sexercise fans: Kim Cattrall and Melanie B say having sex is a great way lose weight.  Who can argue with that?  Sex is great and burning off calories is just icing on the cake.

Sexy, Sensual Women Are Everywhere

Senual womanLawrence Lanoff is a tantric meditation master. He's a social-satirist-sex-pundit, who questions beliefs and myths. He writes on sex, science, culture, and anything that crosses his mind and body.  He wrote this blog that I wanted to share with you.  Just in case you ever doubt your own sexuality keep reading. Lawrence is right on.

Last week, the TV show The Doctors did a segment on the sex-drive-differences between men and women. Their theories were comical. Mainly because they continue to look at sex through stereotypical frames and filters.

The out worn idea: men want lots of sex. Women don’t.

Real Cougar Women Wondering If They Need A Man To Be Happy

By Dr. Fayr Barkley, Ph.D.

Wonder_woman_deluxe A Real Cougar Woman works to keep her life in balance. She juggles kids, work, friendships, social obligations, finances, and staying beautiful, healthy and fit.  She is really a Wonder Woman but does she have time to search for THAT great man? 

Life after an unhappy marriage may teach women to raise the bar on the next guy they meet.Many women I have taked to say, men are no longer on their radar. 

Often what happens with smart, savvy, self actualized women is they wind up knit picking each man they meet to the point where they stop looking for or exploring a relationship altogether. Convinced there are no "right" men out there, more and more time is spent at the gym, engaging in a hobby, meeting the girls for happy hour, reading the latest best seller's list offering. More time sans men.

Thin Women Make Men Happier - Really????

by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman 
 
OverweightmanG_450x329 Here's a dreadful headline I read the other day - ‘Happiness is Her being Slimmer than Him’.  Oh no, once again women are being subjected to this absurd drivel.  Propaganda that tells us that if we are not perfect 10's we are not good enough.  It's this constant focus of being thin that causes eating disorders, and if not that, women who just don't feel they are good enough to please a man.  
 
This infuriates me.  Are we that insecure that we're waiting around for other people to tell us if we're pretty enough, good enough, smart enough, rich enough???  I sure hope not.  The only opinion that really counts is the one you have about yourself.  That rules the quality of your life.

Michelle Obama's Extreme Makeover

by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar Woman 

 Extreme makeoverMichelle Obama will be filming a segment for Extreme Makeover Home Edition in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  She will join the Makeover crew as they build a two-story boarding house and resource centre for destitute female veterans. It's called the Steps and Stages Jubillee House.  This effort is linked to the 'Joining Forces' initiative that she began with Dr. Jill Biden in the Spring.

Barbara Marshall, a 15-year Navy veteran who runs the non-profit shelter which provides transitional and permanent homes, has been recruiting local construction workers and volunteers over the past week.

Marshall, a former chaplain, has accommodated hundreds of women since opening the complex a little over a year ago - unsurprising given that the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates 107,000 veterans are homeless on any given night.

5 Things You Should Never Say To A Man

Frustrated%20man2 I read this article this morning and wanted to share it with you. Sebastian Leguizamon HeadDrama.com wrote it in response to this "5 Things You Should Never Say To A Woman",
 
Sebasion says, "there are a lot of things you should never say to a man, but I figured I’d make life interesting for you and just lay out the top five".

1.“IT’S ONLY A GAME”

WHAT?! NO. NO. NO. NO! Please women, never, ever say this to a man. Unless you’ve been watching the paint dry for the last couple of centuries, sports have ruled men’s lives since the beginning of time! Just imagine that Jackie Robinson never entered the MLB and a woman just walked up to him and said, “Oh, it’s only a game.” Try it out, go to a sports bar and tell the guys it’s only a game. Yea… you get the point. Please don’t say this to any man, especially if they’re watching their team lose. Could result in unwanted discussions.

Accomplishing More By Slowing Down

LindaFranklin01aby Linda Franklin - The Real Cougar Woman 

There comes a time in your life that you must make a choice.  Start accepting who you are or keep beating yourself up for perceived your imperfections.  You realize everyone has got stuff they would like to change but it's okay to like or even love yourself for who you are - warts and all.  You make peace, take a deep breath and stop punishing yourself for being YOU.

This acceptance takes time because we are all a work in progress.  But after many decades of micro managing everything I find the strangest thing is happening. Because I have stopped being so critical of myself and have stopped trying to mastermind everything in my life, change is occuring on it's own. Being in a more relaxed and happy state has allowed that change to take place. I am loving it and I am appreciating how the universe is showing me that when I get out of my own way miracles happen.

Sex Is Different For Men - Women Be Smart With Your Heart

By: Dr. Fayr Barkley, Ph.D.

FAYR_IN_BELLDINI_REDWomen bond to a man sexually, partly because of wish fulfillment, an increase in Dopamine and Oxytocin levels associated with orgasm. Many women think that once they have slept with a man  it means things are now exclusive; however, men do not necessarily subscribe to thisBed1  thinking.

This is why it is SO IMPORTANT to have a talk prior to having sex to find out what this experience is going to mean for both of you and to make sure you are on the same page.  If you are a woman looking for an exclusive relationship and he is a man who is not, then why would you have sex with him? You are putting your emotional health and risk and will end up getting hurt.
