Happy Birthday, Sagittarius! Fiery, yet flexible, Sagittarius is definitely a live and let live personality. They are the explorers of the zodiac and need superb shoes to keep up with their wanderlust. Here’s some footwear we think will serve The Archer perfectly. Sagittarius the Archer is ruled by Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion, so that explains the persistent twinkle in their eye.

We are so inundated with images of a fat, bearded, rosy-cheeked Santa Claus that we forget that other cultures have different renderings of the gift-bestower of holiday season. Here’s a rundown of a few other cultures’ alternatives to our more corpulent St. Nick. Italy
Italians credit a beneficent witch clad in black with bringing holiday treats on January 6th. Complete with bewitching accoutrements like the conical hat, La Befana comes down the chimney in her broom. Itching to dress up like Befana, ladies?

Feeling stylish in the gym, along with the superior comfort and support New Balance provides, kept my booty in the gym during the lazy days of the winter celebration. Just setting foot in the gym in December is impressive in my world.

I participated in the pre-dawn Black Friday dash exactly once. Once was enough to convince me that NO amount of savings was worth endangering my life to lock it in. Seriously, it was like the Hunger Games.Read Now »

• They are portable and we can use them just about anywhere
• Smartphones facilitate immediate communication
• They provide instant access to worldwide news and events
• They are a comprehensive gadget that delivers entertainment in countless ways
