By popular demand we’re doing a mega post full of Tag your Friends Facebook Tag Pictures we came across the past two weeks. Onion Head is a very popular Japanese cartoon character which has been circulating instant messaging networks and forums as avatars, emoticons (or smileys) for a few years now.
Although the little cartoon or comic characters in the following one look familiar, I can’t place them. Take Care, Hopeful Heart, Friend, Best Friend, Polite Panda, Baby Hugs, Do Your Best, America Cares, Wish, Funshine, Thanks-a-lot, Smart Heart, Champ Care, Secret, Birthday, Daydream, Good Luck, Tenderheart, Bashful Heart, True Heart, Baby Tugs, Grumpy, Cheer, Harmony, Love-a-lot, Laugh-a-lot, Share, and Surprise Bear. Miss saucy, The moron, the punny one, the critic, the patient one, the pervert, the drama queen, the dangerous one. Two more tagging pictures that seem to be based on the same type of drawings, but again, I can’t place then taken from the Doodle Friends app on Facebook (thanks for pointing that out Pennycake!). Angel face, beauty queen, big eyed gal, bubble, best pal, cutey, pretty, lady boss, drama queen, girl next door, happy go-luckky, hot babe, hot mama, sureeli awaaz, smarty, bezaar insaan, social butterfly, sweetheart, decent guy, cool dude, cute guy, Harry Potter, sealed lips, flirtoo, loveable, book worm, burnt toast, cellular, chatterbox, huggable, shopaholic, shutterbug, sweet tooth, weight watcher, workaholic, night owl, muscleman, movie buff, couch potato, cuddly, choc lover, neat chap, trendy, supermodel.
Angel face, big heart, baby face, joker, princess, prince, singer, basketball fan, smart gal, brainy, buddy, sporty gal, sporty guy, dancer, artist, iPodder, gamer, choc lover, coffeeholic, ice cream lover, guzzler, night owl, sunshine, soccer champ, Facebooker, lil devil, book worm, IT whiz, shutterbug, shopaholic, musical, iron chef, bible lover, health nut, junk food, writer, workaholic. Yet another, most likely Japanese comic or anime character I don’t recognise is featured in the very popular tagging picture below. Next up is a collage of 26 pin-up girls which I believe are taken from the fifties’ Coca Cola ads. The one you can depend on, the dumb one, the naughty one, the shy one, the naked one, the one who always eats sweets, the tease, the scaredy cat, the beauty queen, gossip girl, the clumsy one, the messy artist, the romantic, the sensitive one, the jokester, the comfortable one, the musical one, the one who always gets hurt, the athlete, the playful one, the sassy one, the sleepy one, the cook, the alcoholic, the neat freak, the best friend.

I especially remember one old guy, batty as hell, his face covered with pus, his bald scalp peeling, his tongue swollen and hanging out of his mouth like a steer at an old-time Kansas City slaughterhouse.
I was pulling guard duty and I spotted him when he was a half mile down the hill that leads up to the compound. At noon the day we buried the kid, we saw smoke, a single pencil-thin curl that rose into the sky like jet exhaust, except there weren't any jets any more. Pete suddenly had that mongrel look on his face, a strange cross between outrage and guilt, but he didn't say anything. Pete was carrying a shotgun, one of the pumper-action Ted Williams models we'd scavenged out of a Sears Roebuck store somewhere along the line. We had only about a hundred shells of buckshot left, but Mather had insisted we take every last one of them. That night, Tony and Mather stayed behind with the women and Eric, eleven months old, our only offspring.
It was summer, the summer of my twenty-seventh year, and it had been the most glorious summer of my life. I have to believe the guy upstairs has a pretty mean streak of irony because that wasn't it by a long shot.
Maybe it was the test of a new killer technology related to the so-called Star Wars program that the late President Reagan had announced a decade before. Maybe the Martians landed in a Kansas cornfield and decided to zap ninety-five percent of the human race, just for kicks.
Whatever it was, it silently and quickly burned off half the upper atmosphere, leaving plants to die, food chains to be disrupted and destroyed.
We didn't know how bad it had really been until it turned winter, and winter brought no dirty snow on Fifth Avenue, no frost on Macy's windows, no skating in Central Park, no temperatures lower than the sixties, not even in January or February. By spring, the hospitals and doctors were overloaded with skin-cancer cases and people whose vision was fading away to darkness.
By summer, the effects of the failed wheat and corn crops were filtering down, and grocery stores experienced their first shortages. We were in Boston when the fabric of American society began to dissolve, slowly but completely, like a cube of sugar in water. Mather had decided to put down roots, at least until we could figure out what the long-term plan would be. Why they didn't establish camps like the rest of us was a mystery not even Mather pretended to be able to solve. But it wasn't only noise that made the nights strange -- temperatures had been thrown all out of whack, too. Some had been torched and some had self-combusted, but most of the houses still stood -- a curious mixture of white Colonials and shingled Capes and ticko-tacko pre-fab ranches that had been all the rage during the prosperous, inflationless fifties. You didn't need a historian to see that the Quannapowitt in the old days had been a healthy, full-fledged river -- upstream a mile you could see the remains of a dozen mills.
Getting to the barn was easy: Crouching low, we simply followed a waist-high stone wall that ran up to it from the river. What I was prepared for, I suppose, was the usual band of roamers: a group of men and women, middle-aged or younger, with one kid, possibly two. There were no grown men in this group -- no able-bodied grown men, that is, only a wizened old character who looked to be eighty or more sitting closest to the fire. If the empty cans were any clue, they'd recently finished dinner, but there hadn't been much to eat.
Mather later theorized that they had been in hiding somewhere, and had recently been forced out somehow -- maybe when their food ran low, maybe at the hands of some belligerent roamers. With my father's encouragement and guidance, and on very wobbly ankles, I would circle that rink, hour after hour.
I learned, for example, that being good and decent and kind is its own reward, and that working hard is a virtue. Those who know me best may observe, correctly, that I have not taken all of my father's lessons to heart.
I had arrived early in Boston for animal rounds, in which the week's experiments on pigs and baboons are reviewed by the scientist and his staff of fellows, post-docs and senior investigators.
They are what they've always been, regardless of topic: fairness, balance, accuracy, clarity, and so forth.
Merely keeping on top of the field is daunting, as the list of publications in that Boston lab demonstrates.
Which leads to the deeper questions, the moral, religious, cultural and ethical ones -- those raised by people like Christopher Reeve, who sat here two weeks ago in his wheelchair and asked us to ponder the origin of human life. And so, another of our responsibilities as journalists -- perhaps the most important one -- is facilitating a public discourse that will lead to a sound public policy.
Many years ago, when a farmhouse graced the top of Wolf Hill, the path could accommodate vehicles; one, a bus, ended its last journey up there and its rotting remains continue to be a source of wonderment to all who happen upon it. In our personal development-focused, life coach-dependent world, it’s all too easy to think you need to change. It’s one thing to invite transformation for the sake of growth, improvement, and new possibilities. This type of intrinsic self-loathing formed the basis of my adolescence and some of my twenties. Ironically, I won a karaoke contest in the early nineties for singing The Greatest Love of All—yet I hadn’t learned to love myself.
On most days, I kept a running mental tally of all the ways I messed up—all the dumb things I said, the stupid ideas I suggested, and the inevitably unsuccessful attempts I made to make people like me.
I tell you this not as an after picture who can’t even remember that girl from before, but as someone who has lived this past decade taking two steps forward and one step back.
People are more apt to share their struggles once they feel like they’re on the other side. Constantly compensate for who you are with apologies, hedging words, or clarifications for your actions, like you always owe other people explanations.
Cling to people who see the best in you and find it hard to maintain those positive feelings when they walk away.
Repeatedly do self-destructive things, or make choices that show you don’t respect or value yourself.
Always find a reason to talk yourself out of your dreams as if perhaps you don’t deserve to have them. I don’t care how esteemed or successful someone is; there are things they’re proud of and things they’re ashamed of, and inside they wish people would see more of the former and less of the latter. When you realize your flaws can help the world and bring us closer together, suddenly they seem less like liabilities and more like assets. Know that you touch countless people’s lives every day, even if someone isn’t blogging or tweeting about it. All these warm fuzzy feelings mean very little if you sit alone, wishing you could experience the world differently. Acknowledge your weaknesses, work to improve them, but say loud and proud that they will not define you. About Lori DescheneLori Deschene is the founder of Tiny Buddha and Recreate Your Life Story, an online course that helps you let go of the past and live a life you love. This came at just the right time, after a night of weeping and contemplating what I have done wrong for so many years and missing the last six of my daughters life. To see the beauty that we are is the best gift of this season – perfect in every way. Once again Lori, you have hit the nail on the head … You are young and have already found the key to happiness in being yourself! How exciting that you’re in a place to find a new dream, and armed with such empowering awareness.
I think we need to acknowledge what goes on in our own heads because only then we can challenge it. Knowing that my post helped in that way is the best gift I could ask for this holiday season.
When I was hurting the most, someone once said to me, “You amaze me, even at your weakest. I think you are so brave for being able to write about yourself, your thoughts, your experiences so openly and honestly.
Had a holistic massage this evening and spent the time talking about this very topic with my masseuse. I've been covering technology in fitness, fashion and health over the last 5 months and I really hope you enjoy these trend reports.
Like I say in the video, we're picking 3 winners per prize category, so you have an excellent chance of winning. In all aspects of life, I'm drawn to women who take a stand on issues, don't care about being labeled a freak and just come out and say whatever it is they feel needs to be said.
Even when I'm home alone and hungry, I can cook a HelloFresh meal and save the 2nd portion for my lunch or dinner the next day.
The concept of the beautifully captured campaign was that an exciting adventure could be as close as your backyard.
Every trainer I got was just going through the motions, fully knowing I'd disappear on him or her once my free sessions were up. The day I went to film at KryoLife, owned and operated by Joanna Fryben,  I was actually feeling significant shoulder pain. Cryotherapy is hailed as a cure-all and people are using it to get rid of all kinds of things like acne, cellulite, unwanted weight, inflammation, depression, libido problems, and body injuries. To be perfectly honest, the TomTom Spark Cardio + Music frustrated me at first because therea€™s a bit of set up involved. I refer to my life as a juggling act because there are so many facets of what I do that need to be in constant motion. In fact, I have more than a few waist trainers that I've been using for over a year since becoming curious about the waist training trend. As a Latina (my mother is Honduran), I'm feeling the need to spice up Thanksgiving with some Latin peppers. What follows are my favorite photographs from the day I conquered my fears with the Special Olympics of Missouri. You might think that living in downtown Manhattan, I already see it all when it comes to high style. If you haven't been to any of Serene Social's wellness events yet, you're missing out and should definitely go to the one happening tomorrow in NYC at the launch of New York's Fashion Week.
I will be there and looking forward to some heart opening rooftop yoga atop the James Hotel in Soho. So here's my Flat Stanley Skincare Secret: I seek out skincare that's packaged flat and in single servings.
One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive. This trip will take us to some pretty amazing places where nature makes you feel empowered and free.
Barre classes first came about in a big way in the 1950's on account of ballerina Lotte Berk.
Barre fitness is all about using small movements to work trouble spots and tone every inch of your body by working multiple muscles in unison.
It beats being ohm-ing indoors, especially with the cool breeze off the harbor blowing through your hair.
Earlier this summer, I spent one of the most amazing and healthiest travel weekends of my life at the Four Seasons Baltimore. I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. What sets this year's event apart from the last few, aside from the bearably cooler weather, was yoga-preneur Lauren Imparato leading the highly publicized morning class.
After years of dealing with this issue called a€?sleevage,a€? Ia€™ve concluded that most bras Ia€™ve worn are actually the real culprits. Before you give a listen though, I want to share my thoughts on what Katya Meyers is doing. I got in touch with the designer, Geneva Peschka from SunandDaughtersCo on Etsy, to find out more about the inspiration behind the shirt. Geneva bravely decided to act on the lessons she learned through these books and noticed her life change drastically for the better. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. If you're a Zumba fanatic, you should know that the cruise doesn't set sail for another 7 months from Fort Lauderdale, Florida but at least you have some time to plan, right? And just in case you stop dancing to see where the hell you're going, the cruise will be sailing to Falmouth, Jamaica with a stop in Labadee, Haiti for a private live concert featuring the hottest Caribbean artists. While the entire Team SCA crew was not on board, 2 of its sailors were there to answer all my questions. Their sail, while impressive in it's own right, represents something far greater for women.
From your clothes to accessories and gadgets, don't take a risk by wearing it for the first time on race day!
FOR an exclusive womena€™s fitness class combining Surfset Fitness (the NEW surf-fitness trend) and Real Ryder Spinning (35 minutes of each). I picked out some rather loud styles for our shoot but once I got comfortable in them, I had no qualms wearing them "off-set".
Short girls are always getting brainwashed into thinking we can't pull off more eccentric looks or fashion trends that taller girls can get away with.
Leave a comment below telling me which fitness myth gets under your skin and why it's soooo untrue.
If there's something you should know about me it's that I avoid tourist traps at all costs!
For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants. It's totally blowing my mind but at the same time I keep asking myself: why should this feel surreal? I typically only share my press features on my press page, but today I'm expecially THANKFUL because this issue of People Style Watch marks the 12th time I've been quoted in their magazine. One of the most classic New Year's resolutions is to start going to the gym more, which is exactly why gyms start hiking up their enrollment fees around this time. I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift. I make yoga dates with my girlfriends constantly because I feel like I get the most quality time with them during this workout than any other. This is Nicola Yvette, my longtime friend who teaches yoga & pilates (check her out here). Last night we went on yoga date to Laughing Lotus Yoga NYC and it was pretty awesome to experience her energy and soulfulness right beside me.
People dona€™t just show up to classa€¦they show up wearing designer sportswear and the latest in tracking accessories.
If you're looking to visit NYC or take a staycation yourself, keep reading for details about the GIVEAWAY I'm offering with Dream Hotels. When I entered my room at the Dream Hotel Midtown, this was the first thing I saw: a framed picture of my 2 puggles, a bottle of champagne and a gluten-free birthday cake!
Good news, we found an existing one and it has 34 of the most popular Disney cartoon characters in it, including Mickey Mouse, Pocahontas, Alice, Simba, Bambi, Pooh the Bear, Nemo, Snow White, Jafar, Genie, Captain Hook, etc. Originally characters created by American Greetings in 1981 for use on greeting cards, the Care Bears were two years later turned into plush teddy bears by Kenner. The 24 characters in this tagging picture are taken from many different cartoon series, from Disney to Family Guy, from Kermit to Shrek. If you know what comic, cartoon or children book they’re taken from, let me know in the comments.
The last tag picture of today is a celebrity tagging picture featuring famous personalities such as Beyonce, Adam Sandler, Hugh Hefner, Britney Spears, Borat, David Beckham, Paris Hilton, Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Amy Winehouse, John Travolta, Michael Jackson, Perez Hilton, etc. Not that we hadn't seen our share of roamers since coming north to Vermont a year ago, after the Great Fire leveled Boston and half of eastern Massachusetts. Since the sky blew off, every sunset has been spectacular, nothing any artist or photographer could ever hope to capture. He was all bundled up in canvas, canvas that was ripped and tattered like a sail that'd spent a week in a hurricane. It was an automatic response by then, as natural and routine as guard duty or sleeping during the day. He was on his ass, resting, looking our way and trying to figure if it was worth the effort to make the climb. It was coming from the rubble that used to be Bradford Village, one of the suburbs of Burlington. Since Robbie and Sloane got ambushed -- it happened when we were escaping the Great Fire -- Tony, Pete, Charles, Mather, and I were the only males in our camp.
Pete was our resident tech whiz -- he'd designed the hatchery, come up with the ventilation scheme that kept the temps down inside, even managed to hook up running water and plumbing. Those gorgeous pinks and yellows were draining from the sky, leaving behind a cold, inky night loaded with stars.
He'd been trying to soft-pedal his gut feelings, but you could see he was deeply concerned. He'd been correct on every issue since he took charge two years ago when the sky blew off, the crops started wilting, and the world's population started dying by the hundreds of millions. We were living in New York, then, all of us, living in style and with more than our fair share of creature comforts in an upper West Side neighborhood that only recently had been gentrified. I don't know if anyone anywhere ever really learned the answer to that question, not at the beginning, when the only effects were those amazing technicolor sunsets and that crazy shift in the jet-stream, or, later on, when political institutions and economies were disintegrating faster than global temperatures and the seas were rising. There was no big bang, no escalation of crisis, no state of alert, no Warsaw Pact troops marching across Germany, no Colonel Khadafy dropping a surprise on Israel -- just a sky the color of fresh blood the evening of July twenty-sixth. Maybe it was the test of something the Soviets had up their sleeves that our intelligence never picked up. When we did have to go outside, no matter how briefly, Mather made sure we wore sunglasses and painted ourselves with sunscreen, protection factor fifteen. It was September, the hottest September ever recorded by the National Weather Service, and no one any longer had any doubt what was happening.
After disposing of a gang of winos, we'd made our home in an abandoned subway tunnel near Park Street Station, which is almost directly under City Hall. Bodies strewn everywhere, smoldering or just plain rotting, every one of them guaranteed to be harboring enough disease to wipe us out a thousand times over.
His best guess was that it had something to do with intelligence, or lack thereof, and I imagine he was right.


If you closed your eyes, you could picture it as it might have been before the sky blew off: a charming little blue-collar village, where neighbor knew neighbor and treated him with proper Yankee respect, a place where the machinery of life hummed quietly along in a more-or-less well-greased fashion. It was coming from across the Quannapowitt River, and as we got closer, we could see flickering shapes. Unless some of their number were off somewhere in the shadows, this was going to be a milk run. Since the sky blew off, the Quannapowitt had shrunk to a trickle, six inches deep at its deepest with no more power to drive a loom than water from a faucet.
That was the description of all the bands we'd seen, and it made sense they were like that. That rink -- surely no bigger than about 15 by 15, but an arena to a boy of five or six -- is where I learned to skate.
I laughed myself almost silly at that, and my father, without complaint, closed his eyes again.
I am delighted to be part of this discussion tonight, and I would like to thank the University of Rhode Island for inviting me. I thought of the Wright Brothers and the other pioneers of flight and how the risks they took and the innovations they made revolutionized their world.
They are but a handful among the thousands of journals, Web sites, list servs, press releases and the like that we could encounter.
Many mainstream readers and viewers -- not to mention mass-media writers and editors -- are only now learning the differences between adult stems and embryonic stems, between therapeutic cloning and reproductive cloning -- never mind the implications of research. For him, a man who might walk again if certain genetic work succeeds, it is not simply acceptable but morally imperative to use unfertilized eggs to grow stem cells. These past few months, I have managed to worm my way into places where I technically don't belong in order to claim a front-row seat to history. By telling the stories of the researchers, I hope to bring the research to a wide and general audience. We don't like bugs, the ticks and mosquitoes especially, and anyway, we're drawn to the beach at Wallum Lake, which is just up the road. Every year the mountain laurel and pine claim more of the path, and this year was no exception, but there was still plenty of room -- more than sufficient, I informed Cal, for another good flying- saucer run this winter. The air seemed fresher as we continued, the light through the foliage stronger, and soon enough we'd reached the peak. An inventory of our pockets disclosed sticks, pebbles, acorns, flowers, mushrooms and a bright yellow leaf, which Cal had selected for his mom. It’s another thing to feel so dissatisfied with yourself that no amount of change could possibly convince you that you’re worthy and lovable.
It was like I was constantly trying to gut myself so I could replace myself with someone better. I didn’t know the greatest love of all, or any love, really, being about as closed off as a scab. On a primal level, I really want to be loved and accepted, but I learn a little more every day that my own self-respect is the foundation of lasting joy. Who doesn’t want to feel that people understand them, get them, and at the end of it all love them anyway? It’s an intrinsic human need to feel connected to other people; and oftentimes, when we feel alone, it’s because we believe we haven’t proven how good we are or can be. We can reach out of ourselves, forget our own pains, and hold other people up when they need it. If I didn’t have less flattering traits and stories, this site would likely not exist.
As I got older, a lot of people appeared to feel uncomfortable around me, and for good reason.
Well, now I know differently—I know I do matter, and that how my life matters is dependent on what I do from day to day. Just like George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life, you do kind things that have a ripple effect you can’t possibly measure. Your positive self regard may feel stronger at some times than others, but even the smallest seed of love is valuable because it can grow.
If you start worrying about the future or dwelling on the past, remember you deserve to enjoy the present, but only you can make it happen.
I’ve let a lot of moments slip away while I curled up in my head, wishing I was someone better. I invite you to share a photo of yourself on your own site— because you are beautiful! I also invite you to subscribe to Tiny Buddha, either for the daily emails or the weekly digest. To strengthen your relationships, get her new book, Tiny Buddha's 365 Tiny Love Challenges. I recently read that the average person thinks 80% negative thoughts but pretends it’s more like 5% because we want to appear mostly together, and yet still human.
I really admire that and I hope one day I can feel just as comfortable with myself to do the same. The reason I find them so relevant is because by 2020, wearable technology alone with generate over 20 billion dollars in revenue. Last night I made HelloFresh's Carmelized Onion Burger but instead of fries, the recipe included a roasted cauliflower side. It was supposed to wet your appetite for personal training and help you ease into your new gym-life.
People are investing more of their paycheck in health & wellness, and seem to be more committed to their workouts than ever.
But if you want the benefits of the treatment, it's worth enduring the very looooong 3 minutes.
So I was genuinely hoping to reap the benefits of whole body cryo and report back to you on how quickly it worked.
Most of the ones Ia€™ve purchased or have been sent to review bite the dust in my gadget drawer at Mizzfit Headquarters. I have what seems like a billion projects going on at once, and if I ignore one of thema€”well, you know what happensa€”the balls, the chainsaws and flaming sticks come toppling down on you and scatter.
Like many of you, I saw Kim Kardashian's selfie that she took in her trainer and wondered what's this?
One of my recipes is an appetizer and the other is a side dish to accompany your turkey dinner. Look for them in the canned and jar food aisle where you'd find things like stewed tomatoes, pasta sauces, etc.
I'm pretty sure it was a combination of the perm's harsh chemicals (it was the early 90's afterall) and my onset of puberty. There's an amazing event called Over The Edge that happens nationwide through the Special Olympics, and I decided to do it in St. In addition to raising awareness for this extraordinary event, I raised money to support it. To some extent that's true because of the amazing and innovative fashion sense people have here. Serene Social has teamed up with Lululemon and Suja for this gathering to kick off the calamity of fashion energy that's about to overtake the city.
By the time his photographs started getting noticed through social media, it was already a passion project. I've talked a lot about Haute Athletics this summer and love that they carry stuff you won't find elsewhere. Since there are women rockin' this style and attitude in their everyday clothing, clearly there should be activewear that expresses the same vibe! Her prodigees went on to turn barre fitness into a successful business of popular, packed classes. Quite honestly, I felt like I was hiding out, as if I had taken off for an exotic and faraway retreat. But the real highlight was scoring my room at the Four Seasons for their celebration of Global Wellness Day, which was served up as a full week of fit & healthy activities. Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you. I knew this year for Father's Day I was going to give my dad a travel bag that would help him do this. Here's the link again on Lucy's Blog :)]]>On June 21st, Athleta was the headlining sponsor of Solstice in Times Square put on by Times Square Alliance for it's 13th year. When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing). She told me that over the last few years she's been doing a lot of self work and stumbled across Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein.
During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me. After writing about Team SCA and their amazing adventure racing around the world, I was invited on a press trip to sail with them.
Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. As I write this, there are some incredibly athletic and brave women sailing around the world as part of Team SCA.
It stops in nine countries around the world before finishing in Gothenburg, Sweden this June of 2015. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs. Now that crazy party church is home to David Barton Gym and LimeLight shops where health and fashion are king and "queen" (it's in Chelsea, so I had to). And if anyone has ever told you that knee highs only look good on girls with skinny legs, well, that's just NOT TRUE. Personally, I just think it's a matter of choosing a pattern, color or length that best suit your legs.
I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path. As I get older, I find I need to do more to preserve the firmness, the lift and glow factor of my skin. I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide.
To be honest, I have more health goals than I can count on 5 sets of hands, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Since she's a fashion designer, I knew she'd love chocolates from the most stylish and talked about chocolatier in town (the owners used to work at Per Se). As a fitness trend expert, Ia€™m thrilled to see this movement thrive, but I go crazy when I cana€™t sign up for a class because it's completely SOLD OUT!
The Onion Head tagging picture with 28 Onion Heads is spreading like wildfire, and it is very likely you’ve already been tagged in one.
He arrived at dusk, and when no one answered his cries, he finally fell into a restless sleep in the dust and half-dead weeds along the front perimeter. It didn't occur to me then, but somebody must have told him that canvas was about the best protection you could have when you were outside.
Night was always the best time to be on the move, whether it was a disposal operation or a raid on one of the few warehouses or stores that had anything left worth raiding.
Found it beneath a crucifix on the altar of a burned-out Catholic church in Manchester, New Hampshire, when we were making our way north from Boston. We were the brie-chablis crowd, the folks with the MBA's and the designer bathrooms who spent weekends on Cape Cod and February vacations in Aspen.
In the early days, when the presses still ran and the six o'clock news was still being broadcast, there was all sorts of talk that it had been the test of some new thermonuclear weapon -- more frightening and more secret than the Bomb, which had every true-blooded Yuppie doing flips back then. We got out of the city in June, before the real panic hit, and we headed up the Connecticut coast.
Eventually there was a run on sunscreen and finally supplies dried up, but Mather had been smart enough to buy cases of it before John Q. From a defensive perspective, the tunnel was a dream -- only one entrance, which we kept clear with occasional firefights. Immediately Mather decided to head north, where, he said, we would have the best chance of establishing a camp. You needed brains to build a camp, defend it, find a way to eat -- in our case, a small but successful fish hatchery, supplemented by freeze-dried and canned stuff we'd managed to hoard. The moon was three-quarters full and between that and the usual stunning array of stars we had no trouble keeping up a good clip. You could imagine being born in that village, growing up there, raising a family, walking your children down the aisle, bouncing your grandchildren on your knee, going to your grave a reasonably satisfied man. They were just beyond the bank of the river, roughly three hundred yards away, a band of people huddled in a circle on flat ground next to a burned-out but still standing barn. Sun and disease had taken their toll, a toll few of the very young or very old were able to pay. The noise was startling, but before anyone down there could react much, I emptied the shotgun in their direction eight times. I suddenly had an old-fashioned thirst for an ice-cold beer, but there wasn't any beer any more. General Hospital, is exploring a number of new medical treatments, including ones involving gene therapy.
I was thinking about tonight's forum, and what I would say about the role and responsibilities of journalists in this new world we have all entered.
My eye moved to the titles of the periodicals on the library shelves: Immunology Today, Gene Therapy, and Xenotransplantation, to name a few. At the risk of inferring that some issues deserve a higher standard of journalistic excellence than others, I believe that nothing in the news today is more important than the genetics revolution and biotechnology in general. Today's intimacy of capitalism with genetics -- of IPOs with DNA -- has brought a new element, even to respected academic labs like the one in Boston.
I have that seat, but now comes the real challenge: getting inside the heads of the scientists. Cal insisted on taking the lead and, unlike our last walk, in April, he refused assistance getting past deadfalls. Only a cellar hole is left of the farmhouse, destroyed some thirty years ago in a fire of suspicious origin. I wanted to carry him or at least hold his hand; instead, I took a breath and was silent on the matter. We left the quarry and made our way back to the cart path through a stand of towering Balsam firs, unlike any other on Wolf Hill. These inspiring life quotation may guide you to have a better life with balance lifestyle and inspire you daily!
I think we all want to believe it’s perfectly okay, and maybe even wonderful, to be exactly who we are. Sometimes it’s challenging to love ourselves, particularly in a world where change generates a substantial amount of revenue. But it’s important that we all realize we are beautiful and wonderful just as we are—light and dark, in our complete authentic selves.
Every time you feel good about what you do, it’s one more reminder to love who you are. I was like a leech on them, desperately hoping they’d un-say that one horribly undermining comment someone else spoke years ago. We often want to change from one way we thought we should be to another way we think we should become.
Putting this out there feels liberating, so thank you for reading and being part of the conversation!
This post really hit home and I’m going to keep re-reading it and practicing what it says until I can get to the point of unconditional love for myself.
Yes, it's going through it's "boutique salon" stage right now, but people have been "floating" and even installing floating chambers in their homes for the last 20 years. But seriously, it's hard to decide which one is my favorite prize because quite frankly, I own them all. We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in.
A few years ago The New York Times reported that some women were studio-hopping, taking more than 1 class a day to get their fix. It wasn't an overnight kind of relief, but the pain did completely go away about a day and half later. I know youa€™ve probably heard of many fitness trackers already but this one is the tracker of all trackers. 8 years ago I left a career in corporate advertising to pursue my dream of reporting on health & fitness. Ita€™s risky business juggling a lot in your life, but for me personally, I live for the thrill! I reached out to Hourglass Angel (the most well-known waist training seller online) to see if I could try their products and, of course, come to my own conclusion. Again, not complaining as worse things have happened in my life, but as all wavy and curly-haired girls know, learning how to style curls is freakin' hard!
Louis at The Arch so that Special Olympics athletes from my hometown can train, compete and enjoy a lifetime of their own thrills. BUT, I'm never as exposed to the world of fashion and the mind-blowing creations debuting on runways as I am during NYFW. She presented her "Search Don't Rescue" collection, which really appealed to me because I'm a huge fan of monochromatic, flowy dresses and pairings. Graffiti Beasts leggings feature the art of real street artists whose art can be seen on the streets of Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, New York City and many more cities across the world.
Michelle Austin, founder of the Fluidity Barre, was one of her students among others like Exhale founder Fred Devito, who I interviewed HERE.
You will most likely discover parts of your body that you never knew were possible to work out or even move.
They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses.
If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation.
Let me guess, you know how to break a sweat but you also look forward to showing off how well you clean up and glow like a pro. Check it out because I go into detail about why these skincare products should be in your summer gym bag STAT! This is the yearly event where yogis come together right smack in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the day the sun is at its highest position in the sky for the longest period of time.
The tracker itself is a black shiny oval shaped piece that clips into a metal slip-on bracelet. But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear.
A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals.
Spirit Junkie and the book A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson really helped open her mind and heart to all the amazing possibilities that can happen when someone chooses love over fear.
If you know of a case that shoud be on this list, please add it to the comments section below with a direct link. It's a 5 day adventure and my sources are telling me that there will be 130 of the most famous Zumba instructors onboard including Beto Perez himself. I used to think of her as just my mom without fully worshipping everything she's accomplished. They're competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is considered to be the toughest sailing race in the world.
It's a long trip (9 months at sea!) and it's a tremendous challenge for these women, requiring massive teamwork and goal-setting.
Of course, you have to train consistently, eat right and get plenty of sleep and hydration. I teamed up with Chrissy's and my bestie, Michelle from YoGoGirls, to bring you these playful and sporty looks. I'm 5'2" with muscular legs and I loved the way these Polka Dot Socks almost seemed to lengthen my legs. Aging lines, sun damage and sagging are major concerns of mine, and I'd like to do the most I can to prevent the visible aging process from coming on faster than it needs to. Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin.


Since May of 2009, I've been on a mission to take everything I learned and experienced from my advertising career and turn into something truly positive that will help women embrace health & wellness. I also wanted to take a moment to tell all of you that I'm always here to answer your questions about health & wellness so feel free to contact me. Speaking of sweet, Valentine's Day reared its rosy head and lured me into a chocolate shop last week. As I admired the glossy bonbons (they're literally lacquered with a sugary coating and some are topped with edible gold leaf) my mouth was watering insatiably.
Yoga's the one activity where even though you're not talking, you're still connecting with each other while on your mats.
And judging by the number of e-mails I get it’s clear that you want as many of these Facebook tag pics to tag your friends in as you can get. We knew about other parts of the country, where whole camps had been wiped out by typhus, diphtheria, all the diseases that had gone completely out of control since the sky blew off. The only ones we'd disposed of were the ones that got too close or started acting too weird or hung around too long, like stray dogs begging for handouts.
She'd probably been pretty once, but the sun had left her skin runny and raw and made her hair fall out. Pinks layered over blues and oranges and yellows, some soft strokes, some bold ones splashed up there with a powerful hand. He'd told me more than once that killing still turned his stomach, no matter how many times he saw it or did it.
At night, you didn't have to worry about whether the ultraviolet was going to burn the skin off your back or make you go blind or cook your brains or fry your sperm. There wasn't a one of us who wasn't making fifty grand then, minimum, not a one of us who wasn't employed with one of Wall Street's or Madison Avenue's most reputable firms. There was still gas left, although there were shortages and growing lines at the stations, so we drove, charging up a storm on our American Express and Visa cards as we went. From the survival point of view, it gave us decent access to stores and warehouses, particularly those mammoth ones along the waterfront, which were still stocked weeks after everything else ran out. We passed other bands as we walked, and we had some skirmishes, losing two of our original group in the process. It took brains to beat the sun, escape the heat, and it took brains to keep the germs at bay. I wanted to get in and out quickly; I had some business back with Lisa, who'd been my girlfriend in the West Side days, and who Mather had decided was still an acceptable mate for me.
And the cars that were parked in the driveways were beginning to rust; every tire was flat, and roamers had busted the windshields. We'd have a devil of a time tracking them down, and some would probably slip away, and then there'd be hell to pay with Mather. The river wasn't cool, no rivers were any more, but it still felt refreshing around the ankles. Huddled at their feet in the dirt were a half dozen children, most younger than the kid who'd made it to our perimeter. What there was was hooch, which Mather had discovered you could make from canned peaches, dandelions, anything that had sugar in it, even bark from certain trees. Life-saving protocols already in clinical use have been pioneered in this lab, and I expect that more will follow.
And this thought, hopefully not a trite one, occurred to me: The Wright Brothers transported people.
It came this year at the customary time, when the sugar maples are at their peak and the oaks are only beginning to turn.
Rusting machinery, barrels and bedframes are strewn about, and the woods are slowly claiming them, too. The quarry has not been worked since the 1800s, but if you look around town, you will see many foundations made of its imperfect granite. It doesn’t have to brand you, particularly not if you’re making the conscious choice to do things differently now. I’m just here telling you that I am flawed, like we all are, and that’s not only okay, but beautiful. I was also able to recognise that some of my worst experiences were my greatest assets – in terms of experiences that I could use to help others. I keep saying that when I do certain things then I can love myself again but these things may not happen. Having spent many years struggling to change things about myself with limited success I am now realising that I need to stop being so hard on myself and give myself some love. The category continues to evolve and expand beyond the fitness tracker we're all familiar with. The prizes I pick for each Booya Fitness challenge are based on my favorite products and gear that I've personally test out for you.
I only ate half the bun and the wonderful part about the meal is that the portions are JUST RIGHT.
I already have enough gadgets and gizmos in my life that if I'm going to add something to the mix, it better do something spectacular.
Let's just say I ended up falling in love with waist training, which is something I really didn't expect. I made some amazing stopsa€”this one was my favoritea€”and had a lot of time to think along the way. You essentially have to ask yourself whata€™s next in my lifea€¦what road will I take and where do I hope it will lead me? As a fitness trend expert, I never limit myself to just fitness events because EVERYTHING is fusing together these days. But yes, I have a FLAT approach to skincare that I want to share with you today that literally saves my life every time I travel. Fact of my life: my toiletry bag + makeup bag + hair dryer and roundbrushes = most of the weight in my suitcase. Ia€™m discovering new spots to work out, sharing my favorite places to unwind and scoring face-time with friends. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage.
The 2 pieces together are minimal and sleek in away that far out-styles FitBit, UP by Jawbone, Nike+ Fuelband and similar black band trackers.
The 2 metal bracelet finishes--Midnight Purple and Brushed Gold--blend exceptionally well with silver and gold tone jewelry.
I'm honored to be a part of her series and my interview is LIVE and ready to be heard by clicking RIGHT HERE.
My mom and I don't always agree on everything but she's been very supportive of my life choices and has taken great care of me throughout my life.
It's going to be a fun springtime evening social, if you will, and a great chance to check out the evolution of LimeLight! Come join our healthy party with cocktails from SkinnyGirl and Juice Press, and wine sorbet from Frosae Wine Sorbae, which is basically FROZEN WINE! So I've put a little something together with a posh studio that's new to the area called Core3 Fitness. Hopefully they'll inspire you to get creative with something as simple and inexpensive as a pair of socks.
So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt.
I can't perform magic tricks but I can wear Altchek MD's Daily Moisturizer made with SPF30, Ester C and Vitamin E. The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins.
I thought I'd share with you what I've got on my desk today: the March issue of People Style Watch Magazine and my new favorite toy, a Ball Wide Mouth Mason Jar with a fruit infuser lid!
It's one of the easiest invitations to extend because no one has time--including me--to workout and see their friends unless it's happening simultaneously.
In this case, it's imperative that your mats are side by side so you can visually bond with your friend. His body quivered a bit and then his mouth became a fountain of blood, but it didn't last long.
She was delirious, talking nonsense about salvation, redemption, apocalypse, all that other Bible crap, like so many of the roamers we'd seen since New York.
Back when I was in parochial school, I remember thinking the walls of heaven must look that beautiful. Didn't have to take your chances bundled in a hundred layers of clothes and sunscreen coating your body like axle grease.
Perhaps the good father gave his final sermon, then put it to his head and squeezed off a round.
That disposing of them might be a greater logistical problem than we'd had to deal with in a long, long time, maybe ever. The day the looting began in earnest, we grabbed enough canned juices and beef stew and hams for at least a year, according to Mather's calculations. He hadn't assigned Pete a woman, but he had occasional privileges, which he was always pleased to exercise.
The trees that once had shaded back yard barbecues now were blighted, their leafless branches waving in the wind like the thin fingers of a skeleton. Except for the wrinkles, they wore identical expressions: that peculiar hybrid of fright and exhaustion and malnutrition I'd seen on roamers before.
On my way out of the barn, I was lucky -- I found a five-gallon can of gas, and it was full. It is one of several labs in New England where I have been hanging around over the last few months. Scientists today are on the verge of being able to DESIGN people -- and if not design them, then certainly change them in ways that can -- or should -- make their lives better and longer.
Often lost in the reporting of stem-cell research, for example, is the fact that embryonic stem cells can grow uncontrollably into teratomas, or cancer. Imagine when the first scientist doesn't merely clone a baby, but custom-builds one by manipulating the germline.
The temperature at dawn read 29 or 30 degrees, depending on the angle the thermometer was viewed. We went through the backyard and onto the cart path that ascends Wolf Hill, a fanciful name in the nineties, even for a rural town like ours.
We marveled together at a sight as strange as grape vines entwined around a bedframe, and I tried explaining how a house not unlike our own had been reduced to ruin, but I don't believe I succeeded, nor did I really try. It resembles a den, and the forest floor is softly carpeted and often dotted with toadstools -- certainly a spot, I allowed, where elves dance under the starry sky. If we are not being authentic to ourselves, being who we are, we are not pleasing ourselves.
I’m an older person who is only now beginning to realize what an enemy, or at the very least an impediment, I have been to myself. I love that this running this site and reading other people’s posts helps tremendously with that. It's drastically changing these industries with more advanced fabrics, lighter and more funtional parts, more accurate tracking and motion sensors, and overall cooler customization. Whether it's my boyfriend coming over to cook with me, my mom visiting from Missouri or my best friend coming to spend the weekend with me to play in New York City, I literally ALWAYS have a meal in the fridge for 2 that only takes 30-45 minutes to whip up. And can you blame them for not caring when they know new members are taking them for joyride?
Since I'm the healthy one in my familia, they count on me to contribute an interesting veggie concoction that wows their taste buds. I caught the flu somewhere between rushing to shows and shaking hands with and hugging everyone. I've been to a few of their events, but this year's New York Fashion Week 2015 showcase was one of my favorites. Fashion is going sporty on NYFW catwalks and tech is catering more than ever to wellness conscious users. Ia€™m doing it all in a 2015 Ford Explorer to celebrate Tri-State Forda€™s a€?Where To Now?a€? adventure and summer sweepstakes!
My products have to be effective, easy to apply, fast working and light (on my shoulder, not just my face!). It's challenging, modern, music-oriented, and doesn't follow all the yoga rules you're used to. Most people won't even notice you're wearing a tracker because it looks like a fancy bangle. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. I learned a lot from them about Team SCA's voyage, race conditions and day to day life at sea during this gorgeous afternoon spent sailing on the Hudson River. I've been running long distances since highschool and to this day I'm still discovering new tricks for a smoother run.
Going to the Big Island this past February was my 3rd time back to the wonderous state and I used a new online travel guide service called Localfu to navigate my way around like a local. Even my hunky Australian officemate who is the epitome of a guy's guy goes to SoulCycle and has a ClassPass acount. In less than three minutes, long enough for a smoke, his nerves stopped firing and he was still. We didn't find a body, but maybe one of his parishioners had dragged it away for burial when that Mass was over. I have written a handful of pieces for The Journal, and over the next many months will write more. And adult stem cells are notoriously difficult to isolate and direct, another fact that is sometimes overlooked.
Water has long filled where men once labored, of course, and a century's worth of sediment covers the bottom, making it impossible to gauge true depth (although we have tried, with our sticks). Who would read a personal development blog but someone who feels discontented with her Self. As I get older, I realize how important it is to poke around and get the inside scoop instead of just taking things at face value.
It's really amazing to see all the companies being born out of these kind of technological advancements. It's been a whirlwind of a month but I'm finally back at Mizzfit headquarters blogging about all my exciting Fall adventures.
Ia€™ve worked really hard to get where I am, but if you had asked me years ago whether Ia€™d be in the drivera€™s seat of my own business and reporting on womena€™s health, Ia€™d think you were nuts.
I worry that I won't have what I need and as a frugalista, I don't want to buy what I already own while away from home. Most importantly they have to feel good on and revitalize my skin, whether Ia€™m running to a workout or freshening up right after one. It's simply amazing, so I was thrilled to see her join what has become a yogi cult favorite summer event. But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter. She told me to choose my deodorant wisely because many popular brands pose health risks, especially to women. Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine. When Cal is a little older, I will tell him -- as I did his sisters -- spooky stories of the goings-on here when the moon is full.
We feed our essential sense of inadequacy with encouragement, inspiration, lessons from others. So I've whipped out a larger magnifying glass (aka camera and corresponding film team) and started doing a lot more poking around than usual.
I take a lot of criticism for being an outspoken Republican (I'm NOT anti-gay marriage or pro-life though), for wearing waist trainers and even for making a living off of social media.
That being said, I was pretty excited to see which brands would be making their debut at TechStyleNYC! If you live on the West Coast, keep reading because I have details on an amazing fit event happening out there as well.
They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one.
Find out what's in store for you and please check out this Facebook Invitation (where I'd love for you to RSVP).
I want you to be informed on all the possibilities of fitness instead of believing bogus stories that discourage you.
My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own. Wearing gloves and masks, we carried him downhill, away from the hatchery, and put him ten feet under, as deep as we could dig in the two hours we had before the sun came up. There was only one way to know for sure, I said: Some fine summer night, we would have to camp out here, being careful to stay awake until midnight. We look outside ourselves for models of the kind of human we want to be, but the irony is that we can only perceive that which we already are.
Even if it doesn't (and if so, I'm jealous that you've mastered being a sane packer), I think this tip might come in handy. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old.
I'm a hustler and a dreamer, which means I'm constantly working to grow my company and my career as a TV host. Then we burned our clothes and bathed in rubbing alcohol and Lysol we'd come across on our last trip to the A&P warehouse. A few nocturnal animals still survived, owls and raccoons among them, and their voices seemed to come from a hundred directions at once, or no direction at all. People are always judging but that's OK, I enjoy the path less traveled if it sparks my curiosity. Around the time I turned 12, my dad took me to get a "Mariah Carey" perm because I wanted Mariah's exact hair from her music video Someday. You'll eventually find yourself clicking on every square on his instagram profile much like I did. Ia€™m a sleeveless-outfit-kind-of-girl and my issue is finding a bra that makes the area where my underarm and side boob meet look shapely.
When we were done, we walked naked back inside the compound, pulling the razor wire tight behind us. Our April walk was during a nor'easter, and we got soaked playing in the waterfall, but it was gone now, too. Rachel is in high school now, and Katy, four years younger, is sneaking looks at Seventeen. To own what is true about ourselves despite our worst judgment of what we know and to love ourselves unconditionally is grace beyond measure. Ita€™s frustrating when you work out as much as I do to maintain an athletic physique, to look in the mirror and spot a bulge protruding from under your arm! I discovered there's a lot out there in the world of iPhone cases, and with a brand new iPhone 6 on my hands, I began to test. Cal was worried it would never return, but I reassured him it would, with the next steady downpour. He'd been keen on mushrooms since our last swim at Wallum Lake, when he found ones as big as my hand that had materialized overnight beneath a picnic bench.
He was tired, and as I carried him home, I promised we'd camp out next summer, bugs and all. So I reached out to him to express my fandom and whadayaknow, he's the nicest guy on earth! He also gathered acorns, which he proposed to feed to squirrels, a word he still had difficulty pronouncing.
