Great inspiration. Hydrants, phone poles, art deco buildings…whatever gets you thru it. Run run run!

I am a bit of a creature of habit.  I wear the same running clothes (I do try to wash them twice a week), run the same course with minor variations for distance, and chant the same mantra as I fight my way through the last half mile.

Run the hydrants, babe.  Just run the hydrants.

It has never changed, albeit I have only been on this running program since May.  As I round the corner at the last half mile mark I start to think about how close I am to finishing.  Previous posts will tell you I am not a big fan of running, so the end of a run is quite possibly the only part I actually like.  Because I am a glutton for punishment (and my condo is located on a hill) the last half mile is two-thirds uphill and one-third slight decline / mostly flat.  This…

Diane, A Broad

I’ll be honest, reader. I’ve been a little heartsick this week. To cheer myself up, I took myself out on a lot of nice lunches in light-filled restaurants and visited lots of pretty streets despite my tired soles.

Argan Oil Love – Pure Josie Maran Organic Moroccan Goodness

Pure, organic, cruelty-free, vegan, no animal testing, fragrance free, and fantastic for a million and one uses. Argan oil! Yes, I just shouted it like Josie Maran does. It’s ChicNGreen and the real pure organic stuff is only from Josie Maran.

Seriously, this stuff has changed my life. I use it to moisturize my hands, elbows, nails (it has made em strong and long), face (blemishes gone and fine lines diminished), hair, and toes. Argan oil just agrees with me in every way. Long a fan of the Oil Cleansing Method, I was not one to shy away from oils. Sure glad I found Josie Maran’s line. It won’t make you greasy at all – quite the opposite, it will balance your skin. A little goes a long way, too, so one bottle of argan oil will last you a good long time.

I can’t wait to try the rest of the line. To get started, pick up the cornerstone Pure Argan Oil. The Matchmaker Serum Foundation is a foolproof choice as it magically morphs to match your skin tone. There’s even a Daily Moisturizer with natural SPF 40! And it doesn’t make you ashy! As you can see, the line excites me just a bit. There are some great deals and split payment options on QVC.com from time to time and the full line is on show at Sephora.

In honor of their 5th birthday, Josie Maran Argan Oil Cosmetics is giving away some fabulous items from their line. Hope you win!

McDonald’s to Open Vegetarian Restaurants in India in 2013

Brown Politics

Published on YoDesh!

In an effort to appeal to the palates of local customers in India, popular fast-food joint McDonald’s will be opening a chain of vegetarian restaurants beginning in 2013. Since opening their first restaurant in India in 1996, they have added more than 270 stores in the region.

According to an article by Amy Kazmin in the Financial Times, the company has eyed locations such as, Amritsar, which is home to the Golden Temple and Katra. In addition, a future McDonald’s locations may include a small town in Jammu & Kashmir that houses the shrine of Hindu goddess Vaishno Devi. Both sites are popular tourist destinations and attract a large number of people everyday.

Rajesh Kumar Maini, spokesman of McDonald’s India tells the Financial Times, “A vegetarian store makes absolute sense in the places which are famous as pilgrimage sites.”

In a country where cows are sacred and…
