What will you click to buy - Cyber Monday
I honestly don’t think I need anything…. What are you buying?
A Good Partner.
Roy: I know times have changed, but a man is still a man. And you deserve to have your wife respect you.
Tom: She respects me plenty Roy.
Here's the thing you have to understand about Lynette. She grew up without her Dad. Her mom was a drinker so she had to be responsible for everyone.
Roy: Well, that's rough.
Tom: Yeah. It left her with this constant fear that everything could suddenly fall apart. And that's why she needs to control everything. Of course she can't, no body can, but she can control me. If I let her. So I do. Because it makes her feel safe. And that is my job as her husband. To make her feel safe.
Roy: You're a good man Scavo.
Tom: I try.
On this sunny Saturday

Kissable no, pretty to look at so someone will want to kiss them - yes! Check out a softer side of ruby red lips. A little more casual than a deep red matte finish.

"8 on - 50 off"
Ok, here’s something to change up your lifting routine. Instead of doing 3 sets of 12 with the same weight, I want you to try this: Get one set of weights that’s considerably heavier than your normal (or increase the weight on the machine). Access the weight, you will be doing 8 reps at this level. Grab another set that is lighter - for girls 3-5lbs, guys 5-10 lbs. Start the...
