I met Forbes through a mutual Los Angeles acquaintance and we began to know each other a little better from Facebook and phone conversations. It was the phone call that I had with her a few weeks ago to interview her for this article, where the little fat food and bad exercise switch went off and the healthy habit switch went on. I called Forbes today to tell her that I was having trouble writing the article about her because I needed to go back and get quotes because about ½ way through the interview I stopped writing and just started listening to her intensely. After a two hour conversation, I realized I had like 2 pages of notes and was in trouble. I called today and she said, “I just got off the phone with someone telling me I changed their life forever.” I said, “Well, Forbes, it’s gonna be an even better day because I’m calling to tell you that too. First I need to tell you that I need better quotes from you from our conversation. But before I do that I need [...]

Magic - I put the jeans on and wow - I look like I lost 10 pounds! Also at my age, I would never consider wearing "skinny" tight legged jeans -- well I have found my dream pair. We had so much fun with these 4 ways stretched jeans that I didn't want to take them off and went to the website and bought 4 more in different cuts and of course added black! Also a shout out to the energetic and passionate Kasie Savage who made laugh out loud I almost split my seams! Brothers David and Sam were never straight A students and therefore never got an allowance from their parents. They were left with no choice but to quit school at a young age and work at their father’s jeans store. Reluctant at first, they worked by their dad’s side and eventually fell in love with the fashion industry. Searching for a new challenge and with barely any experience in manufacturing and wholesaling, they started designing and producing jeans. Their goal: Produce the most comfortable yet fashionable women’s jeans. After years of trial and error, extensive investment, countless sleepless nights, Lola Jeans was finally born in [...]
Power Among Sisters - I love Linda and Allison Krebs energy and passion - and they even had mom on the set. Probiotic Skincare Benefits |BeBe & Bella.com As soon as you begin using BeBella, you’ll notice a change. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to soften, dry skin will become deeply hydrated, inflammation and redness will appear diminished, and age spots will start to fade. Besides improving the look and feel of your skin, BeBella also boosts its natural defenses against environmental damage, one of the leading causes of premature aging. We based the BeBella regimen on the Japanese “layering method” of skincare. Japanese skincare often involves several steps - cleansing, toning, serum application, moisturizer and eye cream application. This is how BeBella is meant to be used. Though each product works on its own, they’re meant to be layered for maximum benefit. One product simply can’t do it all. What sets BeBella Apart? BeBella’s skincare secret is in its two patented anti-aging ingredients: Probiotic + Fissione Yeast Propagate Technology. Fissione is a skin-friendly yeast complex that encourages faster cell turnover, enhances the skin’s protective moisture barrier, and fights off free radicals. Lactobacillus casei Propagate Technology is [...]
