7-Year-old Declares October 1 ‘Wear Your Superheroes Day’ In Support of Her Little Sister

Get your boots and cape ready, because as of today, October 1st shall be known as “Wear Your Superheroes Day.” We have 7-year-old Adalina to thank for that. And her little sister, 5-year-old, Leanna has her big sis to thank, too. According to the girls’ father, when Leanna would wear her superhero clothes to kindergarten, “the boys tell her that superheroes are ‘for boys.’ She has even started to wear her jacket all day to keep from being hassled about it,” he says.

Are You Sexy-Hot or Menopausal-Hot? How To Feel Sexy Over 50

Are you comfortable in your skin? Do you feel sexy? If not, get to a Yoga class.

I’m going to go way out on a limb to say that Yoga can help you feel and look sexy. I know… I know… Yoga isn’t about how you look… or is it? What about how you gaze upon yourself? I was very uncomfortable in my skin as I entered puberty. I wish I would have had Yoga.
