BeautyTalk - Boston Body Barre DVDs

It is my belief that exercise is the fountain of youth. Exercise is the best feel good and look good acquisition we can make. However, I have to admit I am not a gym person. Throughout the years, I have joined and subsequently quit more gyms than I care to share. My theory is that, for me, working out is me time, meaning me and only me, and that simply will not happen in a gym. So, I am constantly on the lookout for workouts I can do at home, and, it is a harder task than you can imagine. Up to recently my workout circulation consisted of runs around the Charles River, Rainbeau Mars yoga & a variety of BeFit's pilates workouts, but, I craved more. So when Gilt City had a promo for Boston Body's Barre DVDs, back in March, I decided to get both and see how it went.

Featured on last week's webisode of The Conversation, Whitney had these poignant words regarding work, love, and fears and creativity...

TheHandbagEdit - HUNTING SEASON

I feel like come July, maybe because we have crossed the year's midpoint, always calls for a need for fresh inspiration and additions to the sartorial collection. Intermix is well known for having a knack at perfectly curated pieces each season, I also happen to love their sales, but, that is off topic. Many of the pieces they sell can only be found within their stores, cue in Hunting Season, a collection of exotic skin handbags by Danielle Corona. The added elements of uniqueness and simplicity are somewhat appealing in this current time when everyone and anyone is carrying the said handbag of the moment, like say the CĂ©line luggage tote.

Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States of America, on equality.
