extasy novel that I would consider reading

eXtasy is the type of genre that I would consider to read. Although I only know so little about extasy books, I find them quite intriguing and enticing. Many people whom I know have read this have said that extasy genre is quite unique and refreshing in its own. Extasy has a mixture of romance, BDSM and other bold and edgy novels. It is designed for adult reading. I would look forward to the day that I could read an extasy novel. I have a feeling that I am going to be taken aback at first at its contents and story lines but afterwards I believe I would be coming back for this genre.

Virus Contact Lenses: Some Facts

Even though virus contact lenses is very much ‘in’ fashion nowadays, you need to be conscious and aware of the liabilities and responsibilities of wearing lenses. Eyes are your most important asset and you need to take care of them. After all, any kind of lenses are a foreign substance that poses a certain degree of threat. Therefore you need to take good care of the circle lenses as they are more soft and fragile that demand more careful handling. The Circle lenses are more comfortable to wear than the hard ones as long as you take good care of them.

Great Value

So, I ordered these in my quest to find compression shorts at a more reasonable price than Under Armour’s. First, the basics. The shorts arrived on the day they were supposed to and the packaging was just fine. Zero complaints in this area.Now, onto more relevant stuff:Fit/Comfort:These shorts fit great. I have a 36″ waist and am 6’3″ tall. I ordered the large and have found the fit to be very comfortable. They fit as well as the Under Armour shorts I have and may actually be a little bit more comfortable. So far I have worn these working out and I have worn these under my clothes at work, and I am very happy with their overall feel, fit, and comfort.Quality:Quality has been good so far. The seams seem strong and the overall build of these shorts seems well done. These shorts are a little thinner than the UA shorts, but I’m not sure that isn’t due to a material difference. Either way, they don’t seem thinner in a bad way, just thinner. They don’t bunch up anywhere and so far I like the way they feel when wearing them. In general, the quality of these shorts seems high. In all fairness though, I haven’t had them that long and time will be the real test.Value:So far, the value on these is very high for me. Half the cost of UA and the quality seems to be close to, if not equal to, that of Under Armour. I wear this type of short working out and I wear this type of short under my work uniform and I have zero complaints so far. Assuming these hold up in the quality department, the value will only go up in my mind. I have no doubt I will be ordering more of these shorts and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good compression short who doesn’t want to be the premium price for the UA label.

More Than Sunglasses, Pieces of Art

It’s summer and it’s time to get ready for the heat and sun. While surfing the internet I found a website that had wonderful wooden sunglasses. The website had a video that showed how they were made. These are not just sunglasses, they are works of art! A man looks through an assortment of woods – different types of wood and different sizes. He chooses the perfect piece and he makes a frame for a pair of wooden sunglasses. No pair is the same! I can almost see them on a pedestal in a museum. One pair is on my face.

Love this top for running in the heat

Cool store where i found and bought this top. I have this in Elderberry and I love it. I was sick of wearing regular cotton tank tops that would retain sweat and I didn’t like how my other sleeveless work out tops covered all the way to the tip of my shoulder leaving a rather large tan line. So, I broke down and bought this one in the store. I ran a few miles in it as soon as I left the store and I’m in love. Like another reviewer said, the shirt was wet with sweat for a bit after my run, but I wasn’t. I love the material. I love that it is longer, like another reviewer said, because I can’t stand my shirt riding up on me when I’m running. I plan on ordering a few more of these to have in rotation. I am highly impressed with these and hope to find some running shorts that I am equally in love with. Love this top for running in the heat! I hope this helps.*Update* I’ve just purchased this in the charcoal color, the teal color, and Women’s Team Girl Victory Graphic Tank Tops by Under Armour which has a screen print on the front. I’ve also found the perfect running shorts that I love just as much as these tanks. It’s the Women’s Zibe Short Bottoms by Under Armour. The only downside to the shorts is that they only come in teal, pink, and black. I hope this helps you out.

ALL Nike’s squeek. Here’s how to fix it…

I own these shoes in sz 10.5 and love them. Not as comfy as my 2009 Air Jordans (Red/White), 2007 Air Force I’s (white/white), or Monarch II’s (white/blue) but the style makes up for it. As you can tell Im a fan of Nike’s ‘Air’ line but lemme tell you what… THEY ALL SQUEEK! Even the $300 Air Jordan’s…sad.Here’s what the problem is, and you can check this on youtube…The insole of the shoe can be pulled up (sometimes they just come up on their own after a while and you can play with it with your toes) and you’ll see a layer of nylon. Under the nylon layer is the air bed (looks like bubble wrap but is harder), under the air bed is where the rubber starts. The air bed rubs against the rubber, usually right around the ball of your foot area, and it makes the squeek. You’d think that after all the moaning and groaning about this issue for the last few years Nike would figure out how to fix it. But apparently they just dont care. They know you’ll buy em anyway because they are truly one of the most comfortable and stylish brands on the planet.Here’s how to fix the squeek…Un-lace them and pull up the insole. Some Nike’s have a little hole right in the middle of the nylon layer, some dont. Either way doesnt matter. Grab some baby powder or foot odor powder and give each shoe about 3-4 good healthy dashes of the powder. Try to get it in there good from the front all the way to the heel. Put the insole back in. Walk around, do some jumping jacks, dance…whatever you want to work the powder all in there and filter thru the layers (which it will!). Enjoy your quiet Nike’s again. You’re Welcome :)

Premium quality T-Shirt

Great store where i found this shirt. These shirts and the company are great! The difference between this model and the lighter Fruit of the Loom Men’s 4 pack crew T-Shirts that Fruit of the Loom offers is like night and day. I am not knocking the lighter weight model, but these are beefier and, well, actually luxurious against my skin.What I love is the tagless design, which adds to the comfort. The colors are vivid and stay that way. I usually purchase mine locally and have some of these that have gone through thirty wash cycles and they almost zero fade. Another thing I love is the relatively thick cotton fabric. Compared to the lighter ones I mentioned, these are noticeably heavier, but still breathe on hot, humid days. I wear this model both as an outer shirt, and as an under shirt, and it works well in both scenarios. More great shirts for sale here.Stitching, and seams are strong and straight, so the workmanship is solid. Although they are pre-shrunk I recommend ordering the next size up if you are borderline between sizes. Also, after ten or so wash cycles the inside printed label fades to the point that you have to look at the seams to determine if they are right side out or not. Other than those minor issues these are a real value and exceptionally well made. They come in EVERY color and are so inexpensive you could afford every color. I would highly recommend these for everyday use!

50k Success + Update

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of these for a couple of months now. I fell in love with the original Merrell Barefoot Trail Gloves soon after trying them out and put well over 500 miles on them over the last 5 months or so. However I began graduating to longer distances and rougher terrain and began seeking out shoes with a bit more padding and protection. I originally opted for the Inov-8 Trailroc 235s because these had yet to come out. Unfortunately those really caused me a lot of foot pain and I couldn’t avoid blisters in them despite using duct tape and 2 pairs of socks.Once I learned about these I was only too happy to throw my Inov-8s behind. After breaking them in for a week (I know I was glutton for punishment) I ran my first 50k over a very rocky and muddy course. I honestly couldn’t believe how well they performed. I didn’t have a single blister at the end of the race and experienced no discomfort whatsoever. I utilized no pre-blister treatment before or during the race, just one pair of injinji trail socks and I was set for the whole race (which took a staggering 7:26 thanks to some muddy conditions).In all fairness they do have a small downside in that they lack some traction that other shoes in this class have. But given how comfortable they are and how well they fit compared to some of those other shoes in that class it’s really a no-brainer for me.In summary, if you’ve enjoyed the Merrell Trail Gloves or M-Connect series and are looking for something a bit tougher or with a bit more cushioning; these are the EXACT shoes for you.Update 3/19/14:Ended up using these for a cold marathon in late October in Canada and was still thoroughly impressed with the comfort they provided. I dislike running on pavement and yet I had no problem finishing despite being out there for 4+ hours.With regards to a couple reviews saying they fall apart; I’ve had no such problems. When I take them off they are usually caked in mud and grit but I haven’t seen any significant signs of wear.So supremely satisfied with these shoes after searching for a long time that I’ll probably end up stocking up on them should they ever be discontinued.

Responsive, Comfortable, and Quick for the Right Price

I am a neutral runner who averages only about 10 to 15 miles a week. For years I ran on the Asics Kinsei and loved them, except for the price. I eventually tried the Brooks Ghost, a less supportive shoe that was quick and had a lot of go! The cushioning lacked immensely though for longer runs but I kept them around as a cross training shoe for speed and strength drills.As my Kinsei were seeing their last days and my feet tired of running in the Ghosts (my shins were yelling at me in these shoes), I was back in the market for a shoe that had the quality of the Kinsei, the speed of the Ghosts and a price range that was actually manageable. After a a few weeks of going through Runners World, researching my running style and impact, and eventually looking at the points on my foot that apply the most pressure, I came across the Asics Nimbus 14. I had tried the 13 and 12s during the previous years but was just not jazzed by the feel and responsiveness.The improvements in the 14s made it feel like a whole new shoe though! The comfort and support are just right for my neutral running style. I have a “normal” arch and run mostly on my mid and forefoot. In some reports, I saw something about a slower responsiveness due to the cushioning in the shoe, but I felt like they had plenty of get up and go when I pushed the run. The shoe is also well ventilated and prevents any overheating while on my 3-4 miles runs. I usually integrated hills with my workouts and the shoe had plenty of grip and stability for the ups and downs as well.The best part of the shoe is that it provides you (me) with one of the best feelings, not worrying about what’s on my feet. I can just run and focus on MY workout. They gave me this feeling within day one. I had to slightly, very slightly, break them in, but they felt plush from the go. I definitely recommend going to your local running store that has a treadmill, try them out for yourself, and see what I am talking about. I am not an avid runner, but these shoes will bring you that much closer to wanting to be one!Plus, they come in neon yellow, what’s more awesome than that!?These are highly recommended and will most likely buy a couple more pairs for the years to come!
