Big changes have come to the BodyBugg, making it better than ever.
Longtime readers will remember that I tried out and reviewed a BodyBugg late last year and early this year. That model, which was grey and white and used a AAA battery, has been replaced with a new slim, light black model. BodyBugg was nice […]

Moisturizer for Beauty with Safety

Yesterday, we chatted about facial cleansers here on Fit Fare. Today, we are moving on to moisturizers.
Whether or not you can feel it after you wash (I sometimes can - my face feels tight), your skin needs moisture restored and locked in for healthy results. But how do you choose the right moisturizer?

Taking Care of Your Skin

When I was younger, I would spend a good deal of time in the skin care aisle of my local store, reading labels and trying to decipher which product was right for me. Ultimately, this would only happen during the summer months and although I would be devout about the regime while my skin was […]

80 Days to Train for a Marathon

Well, it’s been 30 days since my last training update and I’m happy to say that my husband and I are well on our way to that marathon. I was pretty nervous about all of the training runs we were going to have to do. You see, I’ve had knee and hip issues for a […]

Get Beach-Ready With Body By Glamour

The first hints of warm weather are starting to nudge into the days and grass is beginning to look positively green … ish.

Learn New Things Every Day

This weekend, my kids and I went with friends to a children’s museum here in Connecticut. There was an awesome display there of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods that had bar codes to scan.
