Turn The Page

I love reading a good book and the anticipation of turning the page. However, new technology allows us to carry electronic devices that can hold hundreds of books.  It took me a very long time to switch from film to digital, so I don't know when I will start using one of these devices.

Lululemon Cruiser Backpack

Lululemon has great gym bags. Earlier this month I purchased the Cruiser Backpack. I debated for a long time before I purchased the bag. I really needed a good backpack to carry my stuff when I go to pilates class after work. I was looking for a bag that could carry running shoes for cardio before class, workout clothes, water bottle and my lunch.

I finally took the plunge and purchased the bag and I am quite happy. It can hold a lot of stuff and has several compartments - yoga mat, cellphone, laptop, water bottle and wet items.

Cruiser Backpack: $89.00 (Canadian)

Coco and James

Model Coco Rocha posted on her blog a short film of her recent wedding. This has to be the best wedding video I have ever seen.

Ready For Fall

It has been a long hot summer and I am ready for fall. These are a few items that will get me through the next season.
Summer To Fall

I read the first two books in the Millenium Trilogy. I can't wait to read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.

I just finished the Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 by Fresh. I had to get another one.

Who is Janelle Monae? I don't listen to the radio so I am clueless when it comes to what is going on in the music industry.

I have never liked the Apple earbuds supplied with iPods. I am always looking for a great headphone with great sound. I am getting used to my new Bose earphones.

I use my Love Bottle at work and at workout classes.  I prefer glass bottles to aluminum or stainless steel reusable bottles.

It took all summer but I finally found a face powder for my skin tone. I purchased the Oil Blotting Pressed Powder in Medium by Iman at Sears.

I will celebrate a milestone birthday in the Bahamas!!!

I Want To Zumba!!!

There are periods in my life when I seem to be more active than others. Now seems to be one of those times. Every week I look forward to my Wednesday Pilates Reformer class and Friday Pilates mat class. I will never schedule anything during that time.

Over the years I have done done aerobics, yoga, step classes and kickboxing. At the gym I do cardio, weights and aquafit. I try to keep active because I love to eat. Earlier this year I did a belly dancing class. I was glad that I did something outside of my comfort zone.

This is the third year that I have purchased the Passport To Prana pass that allows you to try yoga classes at various studios in your city. The price is amazing. In Toronto it is only $30 plus tax. It is also available in other cities in Canada and the United States.

Recently I have been looking for a new challenge. I would really love to do Zumba. It looks like so much fun. Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia in the 1990's. The program includes rhythms like merengue, salsa, samba, cumbia, hip hop and reggateton.
