If you’re not a fan of high-calorie energy drinks or coffee, Energems are a must-try. Developed by Boca Raton resident Brian Street, the bite-size energy and vitamin supplements are low in calories and taste like M&M’S.
Available in milk chocolate, peanut butter or mint flavors, these supplements pack caffeine and B-12 vitamins.
One Energem is only 15 calories. A serving of three pieces contains 45 calories total and 325.5 milligrams of a caffeine-energy blend. Just be careful not to eat more than three, or you’ll be wired into the night.

The other was Palm Beach Life, which was already 50 years old. It is still published a few times a year by The Palm Beach Post. Our founding publisher, Yolanda Maurer, had the notion the same idea could work in Broward County. Today there are at least 30 magazines in the same 100-mile market, Broward County to Vero Beach, all doing pretty much the same types of stories.
On Feb. 2 every year, groundhog Punxsutawney Phil draws crowds as large as 40,000 in Pennsylvania. Guests eagerly anticipate the groundhog’s emergence from hibernation. That’s when the fate of the next six weeks is supposedly decided – will the snow days continue, or will it be time to pack away the jackets?StormFax Weather Almanac and National Climatic Data Center have both described the groundhog’s predictions as inaccurate.

We’ve always loved the Clarisonic facial system, so we couldn’t wait to test out the brand’s new footcare regimen. The box comes with a smoothing disc and buffing brush head, as well as a cleansing scrub, hydrating balm and foot peel. In other words, it’s a total pampering session for your feet. We are super impressed with this product’s ability to transform feet from rough and dry to smooth and baby-soft.
