Who is PSYCHOTIC LEOPARD?:  Interview with Lisa Johnson

  I:  You are an artist, writer, editor, jewelry-maker and designer.  How does this play into the products featured on Psychotic Leopard?   Psychotic Leopard's Lisa:  I learned that I have an eye for detail when it comes to shopping, and have a skill for finding all kinds of wacky treasures, both in and out of stores.  I love extreme clothing or fashion, crazy animal prints, and anything that has a "way-out" sense of style.   For me, fashion is a tool to connect.  People constantly come up to me in restaurants or on the street and tell me they love...

Strong Powerful Women:  HEATHER FLAHERTY -  FEMALE BOXER, MOTHER, CHAMPION

  This is the first in a series of blogs about strong women I know personally, and today’s obvious choice is Heather, a friend and fellow turbo sweatie.   When I first started classes at the Y, I myself was going through a lot of personal trauma in the wake of my son’s best friend’s suicide, and some severe marital issues.  While normally I am quick to make friends, months passed with only a casual greeting between myself and fellow gym mates. Heather was and remains the friendliest girl in our classes, and was one of the first people I...

Jewelry and Value:  Determining the Priceless

  When I was in the midst of a messy divorce, one of the things my lawyer said to do was figure out all of the assets, and a biggie, he explained, was jewelry.  I was told to carefully go through what I had, make a list, and figure out an estimated value of its worth. My wedding ring was a simple gold band, and I hadn’t worn it in so long that I couldn’t even remember where it was.  My ex had gotten lucky: I was young and naive when we met, and had not made a big deal...

The Evolution of a Gym Rat:  Instagram Envy, and How I Made Fitness A Top Priority

  Under the guise of business, I began dipping into the waters of Instagram for the past year, and observed that anyone with posts related to exercise, workouts or hard bodies, seems to get LOADS of likes.  Why do people pay so much attention to everyone else’s progress?  Is it really motivating to see how far others have succeeded? In elementary school, I was a gymnast. My best friend used to tease me because I wore sweatpants to school four days a week, and owned one pair of patchwork dungarees with a parrot on back pocket (boy, do I wish...
