What Did We Learn This Month?

Recaps of Bicycling, MORE, Muscle & Fitness Hers and Prevention

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you all doing today? Me? I am just fine thankyouverymuch. The magazine are piling up around my apartment and I need to just get more of these posts up already so today I bring four of my favorite reads of the past few weeks. Hope you enjoy them!

Bicycling 001

Bicycling: April 2013

  • “Bicycling 2013 Buyers Guide” What the hell am I doing working on a Blog post when I should be drooling over the pictures of the bikes featured here instead? (I want everything featured and I wish this damn winter weather would go away so I can actually do some cycling.)
  • “Go the Distance” A page of “must have” gadgets and cool essentials to take on your next long ride.
  • “Good Looks” Really cool items that are not all necessarily for cyclists but the bike rack will look in my new home, someday…
  • “Best in Class” Bikes, bikes and more bikes—I am really missing my rides right now!
  • “Sole Mates” Nine really neat looking shoes including  a pair custom-designed from Riivo Tekna and cost a whopping $825 clams!

More 001

More: March 2013

  •  Connie Britton: I love this woman and have been a fan of hers for ages (though I admit I have yet to check out Nashville—is it good?) Connie started her career as a fitness instructor while studying acting in New York which is one of the reasons she looks completely amaze-balls at 46 years-old. She is also a new mom and quite possibly my new imaginary celebrity best friend.
  •  “Revenge of the Handsome Woman” Women who have “handsome” features rather than culturally accepted “pretty” ones tend to age much better and get their “revenge” in the middle-aged  years.
  • “She Keeps Families Together” Great feature on Jessica Dominguez who is a Los Angeles-based lawyer who at one time an undocumented worker and now works to keep deportees form being separated from their children.
  • “The Life-Extending Diet” The things you need to eat to get healthier including Omega 3 fatty acids (unless you already eat enough meat & dairy) and cutting back on sugar.
  • “5 Top Facialists Confess” I love beauty advice and here we get the best tips from best veauty gals in the business. (Drink your water, people!)
  •  Cyndi Lauper: More talked to pop singer a(nd now Broadway composer) Cyndi Lauper who worked with Harvey Fierstein to get Kinky Boots from film to the stage.
