NYNE Bluetooth Speaker – Take it with You when You Go.

by Julie

I live in an area where everyone is on a bike. I see them all day long with their spandex on, water bottles strapped to their bike frames and earbuds in their ears. Now I’m sure they’re listing to very motivational music, I mean, I know I’d need motivational music (or a rabid pit bull behind me) to keep going.

Protect Your Noggin and Stay Stylish

by Alison

Ask anyone who knows me. I am a klutz. It is a rare day where I am free of bumps, bruises, cuts, or scrapes. If you are like me then protective gear is your friend. At some point practicality overtakes style in a quest to stay safe – unfortunately. So though fairly active I am definitely not an activity fashion statement.
