Oh NOOOOO.  Bike shorts are apparently back. This may not be a surprise to some of my favourite bloggers (check out the award-winning The Drunken Cyclist and his fantastic Ohmygod series for some serious belly laughs), but it’s news to me…or is it?

Glowing, Hydrated Skin: Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water

Funny story: after finishing a 5K run after work, I realized that I’d forgotten my access pass to the office on my desk. So, no access to the showers for me. I berated myself as I climbed into my car while sweating buckets. Of course, I was meeting a couple of friends at an event in 30 minutes, so I resigned myself to the fact that A) I could either cancel or C) show up looking (and smelling) like a sweaty mess.  Continue reading Glowing, Hydrated Skin: Avène Eau Thermale Spring Water

Grand Opening Celebration For Ted Baker London |

Have you ever found a clothing brand that seemed like it was made for you? I have. It’s Ted Baker.

I remember my first trip to Vegas a few years ago, my good friend Jen and I shopping happily at Caesar’s Palace. Ted Baker London came into view and Jen stopped and asked if I had ever bought anything there. I admitted to her that I had never even heard of it. She grabbed me by the hand and ushered me through the threshold of this flowery, whimsical wonderland and I was sold.  Thanks, Jen! Continue reading Grand Opening Celebration For Ted Baker London
