Big Rich Texas alum, Leslie Birkland talks about Looking for Love on Dr. Phil.
Dr. Phil is ginormous! Not just in personality and popularity, but also in his sheer presence. During a special lifestyle segment, Dr. Phil invited Leslie Birkland to be a guest on his show. Leslie lost her husband in a tragic accident several years ago. She is also an empty nester and feels she is ready for love again. Is she asking too much in finding the perfect match? She doesn’t seem to think so.

Un-Ring your neck in 5 minutes
I confess it, she ain’t what she used to be. We ladies can camouflage our face with makeup, but our neck will give us away every time. Sans surgery, I have tried every advertised miracle neck cream I can get my little mitts on. Sure, they moisturize the neck and help the appearance of crappiness, but that’s about as far as it goes.
My gal pal has the same ageing neck issues as me and like me she has tried multiple products. She sent me what she described the best neck cream ever! I immediately thought, yep, yet another neck cream. She said, “I finally found the one.” With nothing to lose, I applied the cream and to my amazement within minutes my neck looked completely different. Not only was the crappiness gone, my neck appeared smoother and tighter. And, it lasted all day.
Half a pump is plenty
I can with the upmost confidence state, it works for me…………and I hope it works for you too.
Gently massage into neck and jowls
Eminence Hibiscus Ultra Lift Neck Cream 50ml 1.7oz is Ultra expensive too, but worth every penny. You can find it online ranging in price from $92.00 to $95.00 for a 50ml/1.7oz bottle. My first bottle lasted about 3 months.

Mom Jeans are the new Teen Jeans
Remember when Jessica Simpson rocked out in her High Rise Jeans in 2009 and was severely mocked? Jessica, the forever fashion icon has one of the most sought after, successful clothing lines in the world. Guess she was way ahead of us. Who Knew?
Ultimate High Rise: Above the belly button.
As a mom always trying to stay close to the newest trends, without completely making a fool of myself, find that I am utterly thrilled the “MOM JEAN” is currently a trend. And, not a trend reserved only for us dorky moms.
High Rise: Bottom of the belly button.
No more Muffin Tops! As a matter of fact, woman are finding that the compression and support of the High Rise Jeans has actually diminished the look of the Muffin Top, even after the jeans are off.
High Rise: Center of the belly button.
If you are not ready to go totally High Rise, start with a jean that reaches the bottom of your navel and inch your way up. Trust me, they feel great, look great and no more plumber’s crack.
