Carlie Pipe – A Bajan Running Champ
Kurama Magazine writer Carlie Pipe has once again proven how multi-talented and determined she is. Carlie recently participated in the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in Denmark last Saturday. She completed it at a new personal best – 1:32:58, about 5 minutes faster than her last half marathon in December. Carlie took a moment to talk about what it was like representing Barbados in such a global setting.

Who Else Wants A Nicer Butt?
There is nothing I hate more than putting on a pair of skinny jeans and they fit perfectly in the leg but got space in the back; except when swimsuit bottoms sag. That is a sign that your butt is not a round as it could be.
Many people are on the search for the perfect bum, which is not necessarily defined by size but also the shape and perkiness that adds a certain swagger to the walk whether in jeans, slacks or a bikini.
Like me, your butt may be 70-80 percent on the way to great but could do with that extra lift to fill out your pants just right.
