Shoesday Tuesday: Nike Studio Wrap

The first time you see the Nike Studio Wraps, you’re likely to think, “What are those?!” Are they shoes? Flip flops? New Vibrams? Ballet slippers? At least those were the immediate questions I had. There’s no easy answer to that deceptively difficult question, so you’re just going to have to accept the claim that they’re sorta […]

You can make your skin protection and skin cancer awareness a total no-brainer. This stylish bracelet from SpaFinder changes color in the sun — when it is hit by harmful UV rays.

Imagine There’s No Hunger: Hard Rock Cafe x John Lennon & WhyHunger

I never thought I would write an article that combined music and food, but that’s the beauty of collaborations. Hard Rock Cafe is teaming up with WhyHunger and the John Lennon Foundation of charities in order to eradicate hunger. This special partnership works around the world in countries including Haiti, India, Kenya, and Thailand. See how you […]

God’s Love We Deliver: New York City

Being in New York and New Jersey right now as teams of volunteers are pitching in to help clean up and provide food and shelter for those affected by Hurricane Sandy (thank you!), I’m reminded more than ever of groups that put this much effort into helping people get much needed nutrition all year round. I’d like […]

The Running Playlist That Gets Me Moving

It has come to my attention that the sharing of workout playlists is absolutely unheard of. You could almost have better luck getting someone to hand over their social security number, Facebook password, and credit card than you would getting honest answers on what’s on their iPod. Why? It’s because most of the time, the […]

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The great thing about Breast Cancer Awareness Month is that you’re probably already aware of it. As soon as you change your calendar page to October, you’ll be seeing pink popping up everywhere: malls, parks, t-shirts. And that’s seriously amazing. Keeping pink visible everywhere not only shows us breast cancer’s prevalence and the cause’s reach, […]

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. It’s estimated that 1 in 71 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetimes. But when detected early, survival rates are quite astounding. My favorite way to support a cause is to give and get! Check out these “shop for a cause” opportunities from your favorite brands, like Laura Mercier… Spread […]

Sole Goddess is Your New Life Saver

  There’s an old adage that goes, “If your shoes ain’t hurtin’, they ain’t helpin’!” …Okay, so maybe I swiped that from Katie Cassidy’s character in that Selena Gomez movie, Monte Carlo. But up until now, it’s been too true for comfort.   I have spent too many years of sports, dance, and high heel addiction […]


I’m usually wary of books that leave a copious amount of blank journal pages intended for my note keeping. I tend to fill them with jabs like “Note to author: finish book.”  While having spots dedicated to readers’ personal reflections always feels like a bit of a cop-out, there still seems to be some promise […]
