Six essentials for running

  I’ve been trying to get back on the workout wagon for a while – I’m really bad about being a yo-yo exerciser – but I’ve been relatively successful lately. At least, successful enough to not feel like a total hypocrite posting about workout gear. Running has been my workout of choice for years now, so I’m doing the Couch to 5K program to build my mileage base and hopefully be ready to run a half-marathon next April or May. See? Now I’ve made  ...

California Headphone Company Silverado: the headphones for petite noggins

This post is a little bit of a departure from the normal beauty-related content around here, but I feel like it really needs to be put out there.

I believe both have been discontinued since I bought them, but you can still find them occasionally on ebay or through off-price retailers. It may also give you an idea of some of the characteristics of current bags too. First up: Wallet on a Chain  ...

My Winter Uniform

A couple weeks ago I talked about a few things that I’d love to have in my winter wardrobe, but that’s just a little different than what I actually wear on a daily basis in the colder months. I work in an office, but the dress is pretty much college-student casual. I could probably get away with yoga pants if I wanted, but I refuse. Still, comfort rules the day so I’ve ended up with a sort of ‘uniform’ – very handy because I can put it together quickly  ...
