Jawbone UP vs. Nike FuelBand

At this point it seems that everyone I know either has a FuelBand or a Jawbone, and so in an attempt to see what all the hype was about ,I tried out Jawbone’s UP24 wristband, which tracks how you sleep, move, and eat for a few days.

Odds are when you think of apple cider vinegar you think of an all-purpose household cleaner or something that you’d mix into your salad dressing, but it actually has a slew of benefits if you drink it or put it on your skin. First and foremost it works wonders if you have food poisoning!

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!

The National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative

The National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative: Prevention is the Best Medicine

This is what breast cancer activist Susan Shinagawa heard from her doctor when a sonogram revealed a solid mass, and she was denied a biopsy – “Asian women don’t get breast cancer.” Did you know that Asian women in the U.S. face unique cultural, linguistic, and genetic challenges related to breast cancer?

Raw-Vegan Mecca: One Lucky Duck

I’m obsessed with One Lucky Duck. I could eat a pack of their crispies, cookies, and macaroons every day – like a whole pack no problem (well maybe 1/4 pack for macaroons…).
