Jeans at the gym? Say it ain’t so!

Last Workout Wednesday, I pitched my piece on exercising in denim.

Apparently, bombshell icon Marilyn Monroe was partial to decking herself out in dungarees while lifting weights…

Of course, Norma Jean‘s dead sexy in jeans ~ she could pull off anything!

I came across this article when I picked up this month’s People magazine, hot bod edition, hot off the presses when Evie and I hit Hastings and its Hardback Café after the gym. Originally, I sought the mag to check out Cassey Ho of Blogilates

Tuesday Beauty: Legs Bare and Grin It!

In Beauty Tuesday, Health, Public Interest, Relationships, Technology, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 06/04/2014 at 03:25

How do you bare and grin your legs?

Make sure you don’t show hair or dimples!

If you’re like me during this time of year, you prefer to strut your stuff in shorts or skirts.

Solutions: hair removal and cellulite reduction

I’ve had my share of ways to bare, including spa treatment: laser hair removal and cellulite massages.

But what if we can’t afford expense of money or time for those sessions?

Here are my at-home alternatives…

I’ll review this bad boy in 4 weeks, when I’m expected to see results! So far, I savor the sweet scent ~ smells o’so good!

I was disappointed that Jergens discontinued its Naturally Smooth lotion to minimize shaving but am glad that it still produces this for cellulite…
