CHI recently released a new hair dryer that requires no buttons to function. Instead, it has a touch screen that allows you to regulate the power, heat, and ions based on your hair type. Is it too good to be true? We put the CHI to the test against a dryer of similar strength to see if it delivers better results — and if it's truly worth the beauty investment. Disclosure: a sample of the CHI Touch Screen Dryer was provided by Pierce Mattie Public Relations.
Chi Running (or Mindful Running) is the latest trend to quietly hit the streets, literally.
WebMD got the basics of Chi Running from Danny Dreyer, an ultra-marathon runner and author of the book Chi Running: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running.
- Focus Your Mind: Your mind instructs your muscles to start working or relaxing. Your mind orchestrates the perfect run, starting out slowly, finding the perfect tempo, he adds. Your mind takes in the beauty of your surroundings so that you finish relaxed, and full of energy.
When you begin running, your mind must also push against the body's natural inertia. "Your body is like a dumb animal," Dreyer tells WebMD. "It will stay at rest until acted upon by an outside force like your mind. You have to train it."
- Sense Your Body: Pay close attention to what your body is doing. Practice listening to any little nuances that you can detect. Feel your foot hitting the ground. Feel your posture.
Is your body moving in the way you intended it to? Is your movement easier or more difficult? Are there subtle changes you should make? As you begin running, you must develop body sense. Then you will become your own best teacher and coach, says Dreyer.

Besides mascara, the other thing I am constantly searching for is the best flat iron for my hair. I probably have about four that I have replaced for various reasons. I did a little research and of course, wanted to share with you.
According to my research, one of the best and safest flat irons for your hair is the Sedu Ionic Ceramic Flat Iron. Although it's pretty costly (Around $125.00), it smooths any type of hair, leaves no frizz and if blow dried straight first, this iron gives hair a shiny, perfect finish!
