I agree that “Playing music is the brain’s equivalent of a full-body workout” but at the lack of any nourished talent and with my guitar delightfully gathering dust, I tend to stick to Intelligent Life, shopping, and sports. Continue reading “Musical Fitness”
If you have been following us for a while, you probably already know our unending love affairs with sneakers. We will choose them over any other footwear any time, any day. So you can imagine our excitement when our fellow bloggers and friends, Elsa of Elsa O L’Accessoire and Souzana of BubbleGumFashionFace kicked off their IHeartUnique collaboration with Superga. We had the chance to play shoe dress up and create our very own pair. Let us know what you think!
Waking up to H&M’s latest collaboration with Alexander Wang definitely tops your favorite cup of coffee. At the very least, it will invigorate you and kick start your day! It was great to attend the preview of the American designer’s collaboration with H&M and get to see closely the athletic inspired collection that will definitely make you want to work out on the spot! It is cool, edgy and very well priced. The moment we’ve been all waiting for is finally here! The collection will officially hit stores tomorrow at 8 am in ABC Ashrafieh.
Here’s the thing about football: For those involved, no explanation is necessary. For those not involved, no explanation is possible. But let’s give it a try. Last saturday was Champion’s League Final, some sort of Paris-London-Milan-New York Fashion week all combined into one night. Even though our FC Barcelona was not qualified, there’s always a pleasure in watching a good game. It’s just like window shopping, you know you are not taking anything home but can’t help but stare. Last Saturday, we had the pleasure to discover Twelv2, a series of 32 Swiss made watches, each representing a participating country in the Football World Cup. They come in two sizes and changeable straps. The name clearly says it: “Twelfth man” in a football game—the fans! You get the best of both worlds: A trendy time piece cheering to your favorite team. Chili’s bottomless tortilla chips and frozen margaritas set the perfect tone to literally look at the time while waiting for the game to begin.
Ours is a blurry line between football and fashion. That shiver down your spine when sale has just began, that pump of blood when your team scores, the outrage you feel when you didn’t find those shoes your size, the indignation that strikes you when your team has been disqualified…These emotions date back to our Venezuela days- playing en el patio, interested in chasing a ball, scoring a goal and celebrate it while wearing mom’s heels and playing dress up. It never gets old; there is only room for more.
I love Nike. It’s just one of those brands you can’t recall falling in love with. I don’t remember when I acknowledged its existence, all I know is I have always loved everything about it, from its motivational ads to its fond relationship with my Barcelona football team.
Occasionally, I am lucky enough to do some jogging in Ehden. It takes my breath away and most of the time literally! (1500 m above sea level). Lately, I also came across Nike Training Club app. I really recommend you check it here. Nike’s claim: Your personal trainer. Anytime. Anywhere.
