In Honor of Bastille Day, Do as the French Do

New York published an interesting blog post on the beauty habits of a French beauty editor. I was most struck by what she said about how women in France view food as it relates to skin…

WITHIN: A Spiritual Awakening to Love & Weight Loss

When Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson speak…I listen. Say what you may but if it weren’t for Anderson there’s no way dance cardio would be the craze it is today, and does anyone else credit Paltrow for their Organic Avenue discovery?

Orthotics: Why You Might Want to Consider Getting Them

When I asked one of my favorite trainers what’s one thing he couldn’t live without, he said his orthotics. I always thought they were for old or injured people so I never looked into them, yet it turns out sports orthotics are great for people who are on their feet all day and for those who are very active as they can help to not only treat but also prevent injury.

Alexander Wang Wants You to Get Fit

Alexander Wang Wants You To Get Fit

Wang pioneered luxe sportswear so it’s fitting that he’s expanded with sportswear “objects” as he calls them, and, well, I’m obsessed! At first I kind of rolled my eyes thinking these fell into the category of superfluous nonfunctional frills, and while maybe spending $135 on a jumprope is superfluous, it’s function and to-die-for chic.

Vintage TeaWorks: Is Tea the New Wine?

It’s happened on more than a few occasions that I’ve been out with friends and instead of ordering a glass of wine or champagne, I’ll have some tea. My vices are bread and sugar and have never included alcohol – even when I was in college. I’m a tea addict however and it’s so fantastic for not only your health, but your skin (though I realize when you’re out it might not be the best beverage of choice, but I’ve never been one to give into peer pressure!).

Sweat Like Serena: Do You Wear Sweatbands When You Work Out?

Until recently I might have rolled my eyes at the thought of wearing a sweatband – how 80′s Olivia Newton-John! Truth be told however my hair gets to be pretty gross after most of my workouts because they’re very long and try as I may, it’s never totally out of my face when I’m running or moving around in power yoga.
