Snow Beach

 

2018 RALPH LAUREN SNOW BEACH COLLECTION

 
Launching today is Snow Beach, a limited edition snowboarding collection by Polo Ralph Lauren that commemorates the 25th anniversary of this iconic collection’s original 1993 debut. Comprised of both reissued and reimagined styles inspired by the original collection, a color capsule is now available, with a black & white capsule coming February 1.

The original collection was inspired by the look and attitude of early 1990s when snowboard style was defined by an eclectic mix of color-blocked and graphic technical pieces. With its bold colors and signature logo, Snow Beach introduced a new vibe to the Ralph Lauren aesthetic, less gentrified and more hip hop. These pieces would become highly sought-after collector’s items, as did others in the Polo collections of that era. Read More

 

James Truman: From Edits to Eats

 
 
JAMES TRUMAN AT HIS VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT NIX
WITH A FEW OF THE TASTY MENU OFFERINGS

 
Just about two years ago, James Truman, the former Editorial Director of Conde Nast, opened Nix, a style and cuisine focused vegetarian restaurant in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. This was not, however, his first foray into the restaurant business. He had partnered previously with hotelier André Balazs on Narcissa in the East Village and Chiltern Firehouse in London. But, really, his first restaurant was the famous Conde Nast cafeteria at the company’s former Times Square headquarters. It was his project to oversee. He hired Frank Gehry to design the space, and it became the hot spot for lunch. The only way to get in was if you worked there or knew someone in the building.

When I’m asked to describe what is STYLE of SPORT, my one liner is it’s where sport intersects with fashion, design, art, news and culture. James Truman, who once held one of the most influential positions in fashion and publishing, opening vegetarian restaurant – with a Michelin star no less – is very much at that SOS intersection. Add to that the coincidence that he and I worked together at Conde Nast on a women’s sports magazine, Conde Nast Sports for Women, that was his idea to launch in the mid-90’s.

James and I met for lunch last week at Nix, where we chatted about his evolution from the magazine to the restaurant business, and the passion he has for sport, food, and the healthy lifestyle.  Read More

 

31 Days of Wellness: The Final Countdown

 

 
Here we are in the final week of January’s 31 Days of Wellness! Our monthlong journey through the wellness landscape continues with more of the most buzzed about trends, classes, and nutrition. As you can see from above I’ve been busy with cryotherapy, hip hop yoga, thermal baths, Bulletproof coffee, infrared saunas, Spiderbands, mediation, and lots more! We kick it off this week with…
 

 
January 22: INVERSION THERAPY. Gravity boots, inversion tables and chairs… the practice and benefits of hanging upside down has been around for decades. I stumbled upon it today at a friends house who has a wall yoga set up I couldn’t resist giving a try.

For spinal decompression and traction, inversion therapy is often used to treat lower back pain. Overall, the benefits of relieving gravitational pressure on the spine and stretching the surrounding musculature are increased flexibility, better circulation, and improved posture. When standing upright, gravity pulls everything in our body downwards, most notably is blood. When you are inverted you reverse that blood flow in your body which turns on the lymphatic system to flush out toxins and boost the immune system. Read More

Day 20: Collective Consciousness

 

THE WOMENS MARCH NYC 2018

Day 20 of the 31 Days of Wellness gets its own post because it was a unique and special one. Perhaps the biggest wellness trend was christened today in what we are calling Collective Consciouness. This is the intoxicating feeling of hope and positivity that occurs when hundreds of thousands of women – friends and strangers alike – come together to voice their shared their beliefs as one. United in our conviction that country under its current leadership is one we cannot support, neither as women and nor as Americans, today the Women’s March in NYC connected us in a collective consciousness that left me feeling the best I have all month!

31 Days of Wellness: Week 3

 

KOMBUCHA COLA

Welcome to Week 3 of the 31 Days of Wellness! I “Woke Up With Intention” this morning listening to the 4 minute meditation on the Breethe App. I must say it did keep my usual worries from waking up with me, and definitely set a positive tone for the day. We’ve got lots in store this week, from Tai Chi to Spiderbands to Salt therapy, but let’s get started with a nutritional wellness favorite…

Day 15: KOMBUCHA. Though incredibly good for you, Kombucha is an acquired taste. Lots of people love its tart pungent flavor, but it took me a while. Kombucha is hardly a new wellness trend, but one, like so many I’m finding this month, that has been around for ages… literally. Thought to have originated over 2000 years ago in China, Kombucha has a rich cultural history of health benefits said to include the prevention of cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases. Kombucha has caught on in the last few years as the favorite brew of the wellness set for all its digestive benefits as well.

Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that is naturally fermented by a symbiotic combination of healthy bacteria and yeast. That’s what gives it the vinegary flavor and carbonated fizz. Kombucha is a powerful antioxidant and one of its greatest health benefits is the ability to detox the system. Naturally fermented, Kombucha is rich in probiotics. We all hear the term “gut-health” these days, and probiotics provide your digestive tract with healthy bacteria that help improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and support your immune system, as they absorb nutrients and fight infection.

Sunday Night Sport Flix on Ice

 

 
With I, Tonya a top movie pick among fans and critics, and the skating competitions of the 2018 Winter Olympics just a couple weeks away, we take a look at some of our all-time favorite skate themed films on this icy winter Sunday. From ice hockey to pairs competitions, dramas to rom-coms, it’s the perfect evening to check out one of these ever popular and soon-to-be classics!

Click Image For Movie Trailer

I, TONYA 2017

I, Tonya centers on one of the most salacious scandals in sports history, when the rivalry between figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan took a violent turn in the weeks leading up to the 1994 Winter Olympics. An ill-conceived attack planned by Harding’s ex-husband, Kerrigan was assaulted in an attempt to break her leg at the U.S. National Championships. Harding would later plead guilty to hindering the investigation and was subsequently banned from competition for life. Margot Robbie stars as Tonya Harding in this darkly comedic tale that earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress, and co-star Allison Janney a win for Best Supporting actress.
 

SLAP SHOT 1977

Slap Shot is the 1977 sports comedy classic starring Paul Newman as the coach of a struggling minor-league hockey team. In an effort to build up lagging attendance at games, he signs three hard-charging players, the Hanson Brothers, whose violent and thuggish style of play excites the fans and draw big crowds. Outrageous comedy, hard-hitting action, memorable one-liners, and unforgettable characters make Slap Shot one of the best sports movies ever! Read More

 

31 Days of Wellness: Week 2

 

AIRE ANCIENT BATHS

January has 31 Days of Wellness! Our monthlong journey through the wellness landscape continues with more of the most buzzed about trends, classes, and studios. Yoga, meditation, sleep, breathwork, cleanses, sensory experiences, restorative therapies, and more… it’s about looking good AND feeling good in 2018!

Day 8: AIRE ANCIENT BATHS. Communal Bathhouses have long been a part of every culture from the Arabic hammam to the Roman thermae to the Russian banya. The design and architecture of these spaces are as much a part of their rich history as the restorative effects of the thermal waters themselves. Following in this tradition is Aire Ancient Baths in Tribeca, with other locations in cities worldwide.

All Aire Ancient Baths are located in restored historical buildings in the heart of a bustling city. The Tribeca location is underground in what was a textile factory originally built in 1883. A gorgeous work of architecture, industrial yet serene in its design, it is now a totally immersive and relaxing wellness space, enhanced by the exposed brick, dim candlelight, and of course, the multiple glowing pools.

Each pool or bath is a different temperature and mineral composition, and provides a unique experience. We’ve all heard the expression “taking the waters” and that’s what I did in the 90-minute session that consists of a tour through the Caldarium (Hot Bath 102ºF), Frigidarium (Cold Bath 57ºF and Ice Bath 50ºF), Tepidarium (Warm Bath 97ºF), Balneum (Bath of a Thousand Jets), and Flotarium (Salt Water Bath). There is also the Laconicum (Steam Room with aromatherapy), as well as the salt exfoliation area. One can opt for a 30, 45 or 60-minute massage as well, in which I did indulge to top it all off, because when in Rome… wait, I’m in New York City! In this hidden oasis underground, you forget where you are. Read More
