Researchers at the Exercise and Health Program at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse led by Jordan Holthusen, M.S. and John Porcari, Ph.D conducted a study of 16 advanced to intermediate female hoopers. And to their amazement, hula hooping expended similar calorie rates and raised heart rates similar to cardio kickboxing, step aerobics and boot camp classes. Although the researchers state that more studies need to be done to determine what the long-term fitness benefits to hooping will bring, one thing is for certain, when we have fun doing an activity we are more likely to participate in it. I always say something always trumps nothing, especially when it comes to exercise.
We have a new Trend-Alert. Whether you prefer flowers or glittery clips, a hair accessory is a quick and easy way to dress up an ensemble. But if you really want to make a statement, nothing demands attention like a headpiece. Headpieces are often viewed as exotic and bring a whole new sense of excitement to accessories and jewelry.

There is a new foundation in town. Maybelline has just released a new foundation that comes in an “airfoam” can and advertises “nude perfection.” You may have seen it on several commercials. There are a total of 12 shades. When I saw the press release for this a couple of months ago I couldn't wait for it's launch to get my hands on it. The packaging and initial appeal of this foundation is really attractive, and the idea of a light, almost deodorant bottled foundation would be good to every skin.
