Re: OT-Fitbit bands

In Beauty Banter 1410563627.05

mcall1020- my fitbit flex did the same thing and would not charge. I had just gotten my second one when I decided to get the Tory bands. I just noticed on their facebook page how common this is. I have learned to do more research via social media before making any more purchases such as this. Continue Reading


OT-Fitbit bands

Last Reply by roxyrn 1410563627.167 | Started by roxyrn in Beauty Banter

Just a warning- the Tory Burch plastic Fitbit bands ($38) have defective clasp and fall off. I learned the hard way and lost my Fitbit flex and band($138 total). I then read reviews on the Tory Burch site and found that this was a very common problem, so I am trying to get the word out on via social media.... Continue Reading


Re: O/T - Vocal Cord Growth

In Beauty Banter 1409314205.473

My daughter had a vocal cord growth several years ago. She was diagnosed and monitored by an ENT doctor, but when it increased in size and was possibly malignant, he referred her to a specialist at Yale Hospital. She had surgery there, it was not cancer. I cannot imagine having a biopsy done anywhere else than a hospital with a surgeon. Doubtful that Joan Rivers would not be at a hospital having that procedure done, although she could have been having a scope done (and that usually does not cause cardiac arrest). Continue Reading


Re: Need reviews of Ulta Benefit Brow Bar waxing--worth it?

In Beauty Banter 1406908790.573

I started getting my brows waxed and tinted at a free-standing Benefit store in Connecticut and loved it, so was a little hesitant about the Ulta "stand" in Atlanta area when I moved here. No need- brows were done to perfection, but it was only available certain hours. Since I travel to NYC frequently I try to get them done at the upper Eastside Benefit (3rd Ave and upper 70s). You can book an appointment online to avoid the inevitable wait time. Continue Reading

Re: OT--How often do you weigh yourself?

In Beauty Banter 1402400003.743

I only check my weight once a year- at my annual physical. The way my clothes fit is a better indication than a number on the scale. Last summer I had a personal trainer who advised against frequent weight checks because muscle weighs more than fat, so getting in shape often doesn't lead to weight loss. Continue Reading

Re: NYC ladies & fans, please advise

Walk up Fifth Ave to Central Park and on the way, stop in- SAKS, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Barneys and the basement of Bergdorff's (make-up, skincare heaven). Cross the street and you're at the Pulitzer fountain and the front of the Plaza. If you're hungry, go downstairs to their amazing food court (or eat at Todd English Food Hall). For an upscale experience, make reservations for high tea in the Palm Court. Then, step across the park to "THE PARK." Zoo and Metropolitan Museum of art are right ahead, but you need more hours for that! Rooftop bar/garden at the Met is fun. Continue Reading
