Self-Reminder: Stop Being A F-cking Pussy

Ok, you want to be successful. You think you’re trying your hardest. Dammit you are pretty sure you’re gunning for it, really hard!
But here is the truth: You’re not.

It’s time you stopped being a fucking pussy.

You want a better blog, a more profitable business, a happier marriage, or a better life? You want to meet a girl, or travel to Asia, or lose weight, or meet an Asian girl who’ll help you lose weight, or something else? Great! So does everyone.

Just to be clear: for other people, it is entirely clear that you haven’t fully committed. If you had, you would be closer. Why?

You would do the exercises.
You’d put in the hours.
You’d take people’s advice (especially if it made you uncomfortable!).
You’d learn to talk to people.
You would find a system.

Look, your lack of progress pretty much stems from things you’re avoiding because a) you are unsure of how they’re done, or b) you’re unconsciously (or consciously!) unwilling to do them. In other words, you are a fucking pussy.

You might be saying, “No Julien, I’m just procrastinating. It’s in my nature. I’m just bad at being organized.” I call bullshit.
Examine your intentions. There is a real something holding you back– I guarantee it. Unless what you really want to do is sit around playing Nintendo DS all day, there is something else there.

Ask yourself out loud: What am I afraid of?

I guarantee that when you do this, when you say it out loud and listen to the answer, your answer will sound stupid. Because most of our issues are pretty stupid.

Itch No More

It happens when my boyfriend isn't around that I get 3-10 bites within one night. Yes, when he's around, he will be mosquitoes' first choice - one thing I don't compete to win. (No, we aren't living in the jungle.) Anyway, problem-solving site TipNut.com has come up with loads of options for the bite itch relief, and they include:

- Vinegar applied directly to the bite
- Toothpaste
- Aspirin: crush then add a few drops of water

Anti Aging 101

1 Thin Hair
The cause: Hormonal changes, diet, and inadequate levels of iron in the bloodstream can all play a role in your hair's overall loss of thickness.

The cure: Pop a multivitamin that's rich in amino acids and B vitamins.

2 Yellow Teeth and Receding Gums
The cause: Over time, surface bacteria and dark-colored drinks cause enamel stains, while plaque overgrowth can result in receding gums.
The cure: Floss daily—no excuses! "It's a must to help maintain healthy gum tissue and keep it from receding," says Brecht.

3 Sparse, Brittle Eyelashes
The cause: Frequent eye rubbing can trigger lashes to shed, explains Jan Marini, founder and CEO of Jan Marini Skin Research. Plus, nature's replenishing system slows down as we get older, leaving us with fewer lashes that don't stick around as long. And those weak, brittle ends? Old mascara is the likely culprit, since most formulas cake up and are hard to remove.

The cure: To prevent breakage, replace mascara every 90 days and use a gentle remover each night to take off all eye makeup.

4 Dry, Rough Nails and Damaged Cuticles
The cause: Skin and nails lose moisture with age. And the dryness is compounded by frequent hand washing and overexposure to harsh, cold temperatures. "Constant use of polish and coarse nail tools will also weaken the nails," says Jin Soon Choi, a salon owner in New York City

The cure: Hydrate your hands with a petrolatum-based cream to lock in moisture. At night, massage cuticle oil around the edges of your nail beds to prevent breakage. via

Dining Table Design




The Hansen Family‘s new Dining Table exists in three models that offer space for 6, 8 or 10 people.

The solid tabletop of the Dining Table has two storage cubbies in which you can hide or present things. The colorful cubbies can be covered with plates that are made of solid wood on one side and slated on the other, so they can be used as trivets. via

Chivalry Isn't Dead


Tom Ford and his five commandments that men today should learn from. Behold! The list!

"1. You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.

2. A gentleman today has to work. People who do not work are so boring and are usually bored. You have to be passionate, you have to be engaged and you have to be contributing to the world.

3. Manners are very important and actually knowing when things are appropriate. I always open doors for women, I carry their coat, I make sure that they're walking on the inside of the street. Stand up when people arrive at and leave the dinner table.

4. Don't be pretentious or racist or sexist or judge people by their background.

5. A man should never wear shorts in the city. Flip-flops and shorts in the city are never appropriate. Shorts should only be worn on the tennis court or on the beach."

OK...I think shorts in a warm and humid city should be allowed, probably paired with sneakers or loafers... as long as they don't go totally backpacker.

Diet Coke


In 2001, Karl Lagerfeld shed 90-some pounds by going on a (completely unhealthy, but disconcertingly effective) diet that consisted of stewed vegetables and Diet Coke. His love with the DC hasn't wavered much since then, as he's rumored to have his own private Diet Coke butler, and drink nothing else but the beverage. To pay homage, Lagerfeld has designed another round of limited-edition bottles for Diet Coke that will be sold beginning June 2011. The three new "Love It Light" designs feature Lagerfeld's signature ponytail-ed silhouette and will be sold individually, as well as in prisim-shaped collector's boxes. via

It's A Bank. Seriously.




When you got a lot of money and a vision, you could have something like this. But hey, if the service is shit then...*shrugs*..the prettiness doesn't mean anything.

This is first-ever, bank concept store for BNP Paribas in Paris, created by Paris-based architect Fabrice Ausset of Zoevox. This far-reaching concept bank is located in the historical building of 2, Place de l’Opéra. The space is chock-full of completely wacky un-bank features, yet it also has a nice retro touch — the honeycombed ceiling, lovely mirrors — that gives it the elegance and respectability that the building’s history warrants and the bank’s business must convey...read more.

Visual illusions That Tell About Your Psychological Condition

These illusions are invented by a Japanese psychiatrist Akiyoshi Kitaoka (A. Kitaoka). Without any trouble you can make your mind up, from which category of psychological condition you have to muddle through. Illusions are actually remaining at a halt for a calm and relaxed person. If the illusions seem to be in active shift then you need a holiday and lastly the worst case of all, if these illusions give the impressions of rapid changing then most appropriate place for you is the hospital.








I saw 2 of them moving.....UH OH.
