Stay Balanced And Nimble - "Nimble" by Balance Bar

Balance Bar is proud to present the first energy/nutrition bar for women.

If you're like me, you like to snack while you work. Because all that typing takes a lot of energy!

Well, if you're going to enjoy a snack, it might as well be healthy!

"Nimble" is fortified with rich antioxidants, beta-carotene and 10 mg of FloraGLO(R) Lutein.

Nimble is also the first bar sweetened with Truvia(R) rebiana, a natural, zero calorie sweetener made from the best tasting part of the stevia leaf.

120 Calories per bar in your choice of two flavors: Peanut Butter and Yogurt Orange Swirl (my fave).

No Mess Snacking On the Job! Pretzel Crisps are the ticket!

Get your snack on. Pretzel Crisps are crunchy and delicious and easy to store in your desk drawer. Not only do you not have to share with co-workers (I mean, unless you want to), but the boss will have no idea why you have that happy smile on your face when he hands you that filing at 3:00 p.m. He'll just think you're the dedicated worker that you are. But we know, it's because you just got a zip from the Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps that give you a "can-do" attitude.

There are so many flavors to try and enjoy. So far, I, myself am pretty sprung on the Tuscan Three Cheese. Although, I must admit the Garlic is pretty good too. Er - you might want to save the garlic for home - unless you have vampires in your workplace or don't mind being known as the girl with garlic breath. I mean, I'm sure there are worse names that we have for some of our colleagues.

Check out all the flavors and if they don't have them at your favorite grocery store, well, you need to see the manager about that!

Book Review: "When the Thrill Is Gone" by Walter Mosley

If you want something to keep you awake on that long train commute, I have just the ticket. "When The Thrill Is Gone" is the latest book in Walter Mosley's Leonid McGill series.

Boy Leonid is one scary dude. If you like mystery, intrigue, violence and suspense you won't be disappointed.

I have never found Walter Mosley's books easy to read. He's an excellent writer. But, make no mistake. This is not "chick-lit."

I had to go outside of my comfort zone and just take the ride with the author on this one. It was a serious journey, but well worth it once I arrived at the destination.

In bookstores now and on

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Mosley fills his third thriller featuring New York City PI Leonid McGill (after Known to Evil) with insights even deeper than the mysteries McGill is trying to solve. Chrystal Tyler, a potential new client, tells McGill that she's afraid her billionaire husband is having an affair and may kill her. While McGill realizes the woman is lying, he needs the case and agrees to see what he can do to make her husband back off. Meanwhile, McGill's wife of 24 years, Katrina, is having an affair; his favorite son, Twill, has a new scam working; and longtime boxing mentor Gordo Tallman is living in his apartment, fighting cancer. Then Harris Vartan, a dangerous organized crime figure, asks a favor that will lead McGill on a journey of self-discovery. Readers will encounter the full panoply of complex Mosley characters, from deceitful women to ruthless killers, but it's the often surprising bonds of love and family that lift this raw, unsentimental novel.
