Forget tea … The Queen of England enjoys a glass of champagne before bed each night. Hey, if you were 90 years old and England’s longest-reigning monarch, you’d probably celebrate each day with a glass of champagne as well. (Town & Country)
GET BUSY IN THE A.M.
Want to put some snap crackle and pop into your morning? Skip the cereal and get busy in the bedroom!
Relationship expert Ellen Scott has come up with a few reasons to rise and shine, including:
You actually feel awake. Sure, you can get romantic after a long day, but in the A.M., you’re full of energy. You’re ready to get up and go.
There’s an imposed time limit. Need to leave for work in 20 minutes? That gives you incentive to pump up the passion.
It will improve your productivity. The endorphins and hormones will make you happier, more alert, and generally your best self.
There are no distractions. There’s nothing on TV, no work you need to finish before bed, and no e-mails coming in from your boss.
It’s really convenient. You’re both there. You’re both in bed. You’re not wearing much … it just makes sense. (Metro)
MISS BULGARIA IS MISS AWESOME
She may not have been named Miss Universe, but Bulgarian-born Violina Ancheva proved she’s a real winner – by donating her pageant gown to a teen who couldn’t afford a prom dress.
Violina hit up her Facebook account to offer her dress to someone in need, and she got a response from Issay Gallano, who couldn’t afford to buy one for her 15-year-old daughter Zhyra Nicole Cifra. Her plea hit home, so the Bulgarian beauty shipped the designer dress to the Philippines, where Zhyra wore it to her big event – and sent photos of herself beaming at the dance. (Metro)
