Got 100 Seconds?

Hello Luv-lies,

Just a gentle reminder that if you haven’t gone to check out this whole Movember thing, you still have plenty of time to see what all the hype is about.

You don’t have to be a ‘Mo Bro to participate.  All of us  ‘Mo Sista’s can get it involved, too   *not by growing a moustache*.

Round up your ‘Mo Sista Friends and let’s do our part for this very worthy cause and make a generous donation!

And

for your viewing pleasure,

if you have 100 seconds, I have 40 moustaches

I gave. Did you?

Do tell ….

iNspIRation: WorkOut *Bling*

Good Morning Lu-lies,

The temperature here has been dropping daily *yikes*.

Being a  ‘hot weather person’, I thought that having to bring my running game inside would cause me to lose interest, but, so far it has not happened !!!!

I am certain that my perception of fall/winter running is probably not as bad as I think  the monsters in my mind have me tripping over pebbles, running too far and not having enough energy to run back, running out of water, having to stop to use the restroom – and not having one readily available…. 

But until I conquer the crazies, I’m inside.

In my efforts to be proactive about this whole staying focused thing, I’ve decided to go trolling for some new fitness gear.  Hey You, no judgment 🙂 … a girl’s gotta have a reason to shop, right?

This is what I found    *some of it is sparkly*

This little gem is probably not practical, but I do luv the *bling*, *bling*.  This is some kinda of special if you luv to sparkle while you sweat.  Not to mention being a sucker for glitz!

Found this really cool hand stamped necklace.  This piece is great as a gift for a personal trainer or as an inspiration for the newbie – like me!

Running the 5K inspired me to work toward running a half marathon next year…. YES!!

The plan is to run, at least one, half marathon.  *throwing confetti in the air for inspiration* .  Perhaps this little baby will keep me inspired and less focused on the craziness of this new found goal.

I figure that with all of this training, I’m going to need something to rock all of those medals.  What do you think?

I reeeallly ❤ the crown on this one… a lot

Well Luv-lies,  this shopping spree could go on forever, so I think I’ll stop with these rocking pieces.

So, what inspires you?

What’s In Your Food?

Good Morning Luv-lies,

I love gadgets!!   Show me an electronic gadget, I’ll show you a gal that’s in e-heaven!!!

Kitchen gadgets, office gadgets, clothing gadgets…. it just doesn’t matter.  If it’s a gadget, I’m sold.

New on my gadget list of  ‘I Want That’ is this baby pictured below.

It’s handle is the ‘Tellspec’ and its claim to fame is that with a wave of the hand, it can calculate all the calories,  ingredients, chemicals, and allergens in all types of food.

WOW” !!!  Imagine that!

The concept is the brainchild of a the young daughter of an entrepreneur and math professor, who was plagued by food allergies.   The story  is that one evening, while having dinner, the youngster picked up a flash drive and proposed a device that, when pointed at food would be able to calculate it’s content.  *From the minds of Babes*

Here’s the video, to fill you in on the details.  I must warn you, though, there is a short segment that gets very scientific.

Well Luv-lies, if you’re anything like me, right now you are the edge of your seat waiting, breathlessly, for me to tell you where you can be one of the first to get your hands on one of these luv-vah-lies!  Here’s where I break it to you gently….

…. this product, is not yet for sale.  Actually, the two inventors are in the process of working out the kinks, raising funds, and talking with optical companies who might be interested in manufacturing this little gem.

Until then, I’ll stand in line with you guys and hope that it will be available soon –  in pink 🙂

What gadget can you not live without  – real and/or imagined?  *wink*

8 stages of marathon running… Just in Time for the NYC Marathon

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Well, today is the day that thousands – according to the talk in the running community- 47,000 runners have been eagerly awaiting….. The New York City Marathon!!! 

Cancelled last year due to , what is now referred to as ‘Super Storm Sandy, I’m sure that that the energy among the runners there is palpable!  

I’ll be watching the race along with all of you. 

As a show of support, I’ve found this light-hearted video, as a tribute to these everyday Heroes 

 

I hope that you’ve enjoyed this fun-filled look of what it must be like – at least for some – in the pursuit of this much applauded 26.1 miles of victory 🙂

 

So Luv-lies,

Do You NaBloPoMo?

Good Morning Luv-lies,

This morning I signed on to participate in this months NaBloPoMo.  Okay… so what is this?  NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month :-).  I’m using this opportunity as an inspiration to continue, waaaay after this challenge has ended, post daily in this space that I’ve curved out for myself.   A space where – as the tag line for this challenge encourages –  I can “Type [My] Heart Out” !

Modeled after a similar contest whose audience are novelists  NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month),, the wonderful people at Blogher  created a community of everyday bloggers to gather and share their thoughts and experiences.

So Luv-lies,  What’s inspired you today?

#Movember … What’s this All About?

20131106-153845.jpgHey Luv-lies,

Good Morning to you all.

I am sooooo excited about this being the month of November!  Yes, yes.  I know – It’s #NaBlogPoMo  Month!!  Don’t get me wrong, I am super stoked about that…

Whaaaat!?  … being able to hob-nob with all of the fabulousness in one divine blogosphere community….  can you say

 ‘FAB – U- LOUSSSSS‘?!

 Well it seems that November is the chosen month for many a celebration.  I think that I know which one is coming to mind, right about now.  But. No, No.  It’s not Thanksgiving (I’ll have a post about this holiday for Culinary Divahs and Food Lovers very soon).

Then ‘What can it be?’ you ask  *gently scratching one’s head with a well-manicured nail*

This month is officially,

MOVEMBERRRRRRR!

What? Oh What? is this thing called Movember?

In the words of one NYC journalist,  simply put, Movember is a fundraising initiative where ….

“….. thousands of men around the world said goodbye to their clean-shaven upper lips and braced themselves for awkward stubble. Movember, a global initiative that has grow mustaches during November to raise awareness and money for men’s health, is now officially under way….”

It’s been several years since the birth of this initiative (founded by an Australian gentleman),  Movember  has become an official charity with global reach.  The vision is to have an impact on men’s health that rivals that of breast cancer awareness.

There are Three Basic Rules:

1~    Start on November 1st clean shaven

2~   Grow  your ‘Mo’  (Australian for ‘moustache’) for 30 days

3~     Raise Awareness and funds for Men’s Health

It’s that simple…

Need the backstory?

Check out this video….

 Through the power of the Mo, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.

So Luv-lies,

Will you ‘Mo’ this month?
