Cleopatra was a sensual and wanton woman of mystery and intrigue. She was a queen at 18 and ruled most of the entire eastern Mediterranean coast. As a calculating and shrewd woman, she enjoyed the love interests, liaisons and military alliances with the forbidding and powerful including Roman leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. She was declared goddesses who presented her mystique with a show of pagentry and guile.  Her life in total was epic.  Her powers of seduction and sultry exotic beauty were to be reckoned with.  

Despite power and riches, or in spite of these worldly treasures, Cleopatra killed herself on August 12, 30 B.C. The facts of her demise remain unclear....was it the famous asp that killed the queen, or a vial of poison?

Today, Cleopatra remains immortal,  an enigma, an enduring figure in history, popular myth, and beauty.  Her  beauty secrets include the milk bath, the beauty face masks and special fragrances. Perhaps her Milk and Honey Bath remains the most famous, however as women clamour to find the elusive fountain of youth.

The History of Earth Day

VAV!/April 22, 2014 Each year, Earth Day, April 22, marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement launched in 1970. During the 1970's, when Flower Children were strewing love, peace and flowers onto a world drowning with air and water pollutants from factories, a war raged on in Vietnam.  However, there was a change 'blowin' in the wind'... With the publication of author Rachel Carson's New York Times bestseller "Silent Spring" in 1962, a watershed moment for the modern environmental movement took place. Through her book, Ms. Carson raised public awareness and concern for living organisms, the environment and public health. Earth Day 1970 grasped onto the growing tide of consciousness to place environmental concerns into the forefront globally.

A baby drinking from its bottle/LOC VAV!/April 22, 2014 Bottle feeding may be the most suitable option for families and the new baby. In fact, bottle feeding may be the only option available!   It's natural to take the feeding bottle for granted, but hold on! Let's visit "The History of The Feeding Bottle "  and take a closer look into its historical evolution of where it all began. The feeding bottle was introduced in the 19th century but there is evidence that a form of artificial feedings were used throughout ancient times.  We know this because vessels in a variety of shapes and sizes have been discovered dating back thousands of years BC, through the Roman Era, Middle Ages, and into the Renaissance. It wasn't until the Industrial Revolution that an improved, refined, hygienic, and sanitary version of the feeding bottle came into existence.
