You've gotta spend time with your girlfriends! Getting dressed up, having drinks, doing up the girl talk - it's good for the soul.

August is the Month of 8 in Numerology and it's a good time to take a look at the financial side of your life. Look for a safe investment and know that this is a good month to make your move.
Take a look at your current job. Are you happy with it or would you rather be doing something else? If you're just working to get a pay check, look at this month as a time to consider what your creative and organizational strengths truly are.

You should embrace life at every age but if you’re a 20-something, here’s my advice to surviving your own mid-twenties crisis (because really, it's not a crisis).
1. Create something
No matter how many hours you work to pay your bills, you can still make time to create something that is only yours.

My job is to take two people, pair them up, and send them on their merry way to getting married. But the matchmaking goes far beyond mushy gushy-ville.
