5.0 out of 5 stars elegant, stylish, feminine!, April 30, 2015
nice watch! this model comes in other face background colors (light blue, silver, or black), everything else being the same (silver band, same clasp, etc). here's an Amazon link to the blue one: http://www.amazon.com/Casio-Steel-Bracelet-Womens-LTP1283D-2A/dp/B001DRIDFI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430382455&sr=8-1&keywords=LTP-1283D. if you do a search of the term "LTP1283D" all 4 colors should show in the results. elsewhere on the internet, other variations of this watch show simple markers (a tiny silver faceted square. for example) instead of the numbers 12 or 6.

my wrist is about 5 7/8" in diameter, and i ended up removing 3 of the links. had to check out youtube to see how to wrestle the links off. took me about 30 min to do that, using one of those precision screwdriver sets that you can buy from the hardware department.

the clasp style is called a "foldover buckle" and also has these 2 side buttons that click into place. when unfastening the buckle, you pinch the buttons to open the buckle. this style prevents the watch from slipping off your wrist unnoticed. i've lost too many fashion watches that have a foldover link clasp, with no other secondary hook/clasp to keep it from opening. because i am so prone to losing watches (and sunglasses....but i digress), i go for inexpensive ones that have excellent quality. this one fits the bill nicely. :)

the watch looks stylish and more expensive than its actual price.

5.0 out of 5 stars they will be super strong at pulling the shoe onto your foot - ..., September 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
because the straps are elastic, they will be super strong at pulling the shoe onto your foot - especially the strap that goes around your achille's tendon. after the 1st two times i wore it, it rubbed against that achille's tendon. it was sore. on the 3rd time i wore them, the pain went away. it's fine now. i gave it 5 stars because it looks nice on my gigantic feet (size 8.5). the criss-cross straps somehow make my feet look smaller.

5.0 out of 5 stars makes a measurable impact, September 27, 2014
i followed the 10 items - 9 things to consume and 1 daily 30-minute walk. i did this for about a month prior to my quarterly blood test with my doc. i managed to lower my overall from 259 to 245, lower LDL from 181 to 149, and raise HDL (good cholesterol) from 65 to 67. i'm 129 # and 5'2". this is the first time in a very long time that i've been able to lower the total and raise the good. most of my siblings take some type of meds to control their cholesterol, but i prefer to do it without meds.

as you get older, it's more difficult to control it. all of the other books on cholesterol (and believe me, i've read the major ones) emphasize what to AVOID eating. although that is good advice, it's difficult to lower your cholesterol on a restricted diet alone, especially if you already eat healthy and exercise.

if you are a beginner at trying to lower your cholesterol, start by following all of the other books about what to avoid eating. once you have that as a habit, then incorporate Janet Brill's simple plan.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as stylish as i thought, January 4, 2014
i purchased the black leather version in size 8.5. it fit good, was made well, but it just looked somewhat "homely." for example, the image provided in the listing for the "black leather" version - here's a link - Aerosoles Women's Red Hot Pump showed a "flat" toe box on the tip of the shoe, but when i received mine, it was more rounded, like the image shown for the taupe version (they call it "Mink Combo") of this shoe. i thought that the "flattened" shoe front would've made it look more interesting. i liked aerosoles "Envy" better Aerosoles Women's Envy Pump in terms of stylishness. i've uploaded a photo of what the shoe "Red Hot" looks like "in person" - black leather, size 8.5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Are there more books like this one?, January 5, 2013
365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life [Hardcover]

I came across this book by "accident," or shall i say "divine providence," in the spirit of the tone of this book. There's a story inside of this book where the author happened to come across a book "Dr. Hudson's Secret Journal" by accident and as the author reveals the message in finding it and its sequel "Magnificent Obsession," it ironically helps him remove a large source of anger within himself.

My "accident" in coming across this book was via our public library. i was planning to make a personal "page a day calendar" and needed some inspiration. I keyed in the search terms "365 days" and this was one of the books that popped up. It's a quick read - took me about 4-5 days reading it on my way to work. It could be read in a day - it's well written.

The book has no pretense or fakery. It has so much introspection and appealed to me immediately for that reason. I just finished 1 year of recovery from a major illness, and this book is just the trick in helping me reflect on my own experience and its meaning for me.

This version: having an "old fashioned" hard cover to read (the book is little - easy to carry) lent itself to the entire idea of writing "old fashioned" thank you notes, something that is fast becoming extinct.

5.0 out of 5 stars comfy, not too high, chic!, March 21, 2012
Rockport Women's Lilah Pump i purchased this from an Amazon seller, ShoeMall. i bought it in black smooth leather, size 8.5 medium width. it was comfort from the get-go. my feet aren't wide enough to warrant buying a C-width (wide), and on some brands, a medium width can be uncomfortable for me. i've owned rockports in the past and knew they'd suit me fine. this one fit me like rockports i had owned before - comfortable for all day use. the picture looks like the heel is high, but not so. it's more of a mid heel. i measured it, and it truly is 2" high. inside of the footbed, it measures 3 1/8" wide where the balls of your foot would be planted.

if you're wondering what that small metal circle is at the top of the shoe near the outer side of the "achilles tendon", it's their logo, a tiny round smoke-metal colored disk embedded in the shoe. the disk has an "r" on it.

i plan to use it for work - it's stylish enough to wear for evening events, especially if you've worked all day and need to attend a function later on, and you're tired!

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 classic Kathy Smith workouts, December 29, 2011
Classic Kathy Smith - Shed the Pounds!, March to Fitness [VHS], Starting Out [VHS], Kathy Smith - Instant Workout [VHS]

This DVD contains three workouts previously released on VHS: Starting Out (1987), Instant Workout (1991) and March to Fitness (1993). If you're into walking workouts, such as Leslie Sansone, the March to Fitness is right up your alley!

I purchased this DVD mostly for the March to Fitness workout. it's only 30 minutes. it has basic moves, marching in place, side to side, salsa moves, forward and back steps. the set is nice with a window overlooking a pool, garden and blue sky. There are two women with her working out.

The other 2 workouts - i only previewed them, and they'd be great for someone starting out or if you need a workout with lower intenstiy.

5.0 out of 5 stars light weight, August 29, 2011
i wear a size 8.5. i got to try these on today at the clark's store in our city. it's hard to find shoes/sandals that don't make my big feet look even bigger. therefore, these sandals somehow make my feet seem smaller since they're not too clunky in design. these sandals are also very light in weight, making them very easy to walk with. they do "mold" to my feet - the straps are made of soft leather. there's some elastic on the strap nearest to the ankle, making it flex when you walk. the taupe color is very nice. the tan color is also nice too, but i decided on the taupe.
