    prAna clothing?

    Does anyone have any experience with ordering from prAna? They offer a program for certified fitness instructors that gives you up to a 50% discount off of their full retail prices. I am very tempted, but really have never heard of the company. Any insight would be appreciated, Thanks, Debbie

    Just wondering if anyone out there in Cathe Land has had experience (good or bad) with facial micro-needling. My dermatologist's practice has just started to offer this procedure. The claim is that it will reduce pore size and improve skin texture and tightness. It's not cheap - $300+ per...

    Question about tipping...

    To tip or not to tip... I have an appointment for a facial with a woman who owns her own practice. She rents space in a "salon loft" setting. Am I supposed to tip her? The facial is $95, if so, how much? My feelings have been that you don't tip the owner of the practice, only employees. I am...

    Tommy Copper

    Does anyone have feedback on Tommy Copper compression products, particularly the compression sleeve? My husband has "guitarist's" elbow - a hybrid of medial and lateral epicondylitis.

    Any favorite spots in Key West (or any of the Keys)? We are going to be renting a house on Islamorada at the end of September. First time there - even though I have lived in Florida for 15 years. Kind of embarassing:o I haven't been there sooner. Love outdoor stuff - snorkling, kayaking...

    Best Hair Brush Ever!

    Goody Quikstyle The bristles are wrapped in tiny microfiber towels. They make a paddle brush and a half round. The wrapped bristles absorb moisture as you are blowing drying. Using this brush has cut my drying time by at least the advertised 30%! As a personal trainer, I seem to be forever...

    When did PlayDoh become....

    ...a controlled substance? Yesterday, at Target, I attempted to buy a couple of containers of Play Doh. The cashier asked me for ID. I thought she was kidding. The system was asking for my ID and would not process the order without it. The cashier was not only supposed to check my ID but...

    False Eyelashes

    Am I the only one not riding this wave? :rolleyes: I was watching TV the other night and the actress looked like she had awnings attached to her eyes! Sigh, seems like too much work plus glue near my contact lenses scares the daylights out of me. Debbie Russo

    What would you take with you?

    So yesterday my husband and I were watching the re-run of the first episode of the Walking Dead - imo one of the best shows on TV. The male characters were complaining that as they were trying to pack survival gear the women were packing sentimental items like family photos. I said "...
