Moments Missoni | Chevron Blogging is the New Black

edict two Moments Missoni | Chevron Blogging is the New Black

“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.” – Harley Davidson

Living life on the wild-side, who can really keep track? Leaving the story telling to the haters is a great way to leave out juicy details and create angst among adoring fans. You know the drill, shut-up! Let me tell it. Branding is for stiffies and prose is for style but a real Momma Missoni blazes her own trail. Overly antiquated knock offs of the quintessential Italian Heritage staple could never compare to the effervescent utilitarianism of the classic chevron prints synonymous with M.

Icebox Cryotherapy Atlanta | Time-Machine Meets Hard-Reset

Icebox Icebox Cryotherapy Atlanta | Time Machine Meets Hard ResetReady for a rapid-restart on life? I’m one for trying new-age regimens and beauty secrets, so I stopped by Icebox Cryotherapy and got the Oxygen-Party started. They are best known for providing recovery services for athletes and active adults, but host a number of aesthetic, health & wellness benefits as well. After stepping into the cozy space, and brushing shoulders with one of the local NBA players, I knew I was in for a pleasant uber-luxe experience. I was given furry shoes and a robe, and before i knew it, was standing nakey in the capsule. It was really really frigid and I luckily enough, I was able to focus on the founder, Alia Alston who helped me through the process. The treatment was rather short, including a freezing oxygen immersion followed by rapid cycling on a bike.

After careful research, she was introduced to this therapy after a car accident to assist in her own recovery from ailments and pain. Her discovery of it’s immense ability to alleviate chronic-pain & symptoms and shorten her healing time, was so thrilling Alston and brother decided to open a few locations.

Icebox is carefully tucked within the perimeter of busy Buckhead and offers a space for in and out recharge therapy. I must warn you: I squealed like a pig as my toes, tush and top half froze below. However, I gratefully admit dumbfounding results within one session.

I lost weight, I metabolized food more effectively, I slept better and I felt like a teenager, over 10 years past teens. It was quite a refreshing experience, I’m happy to look forward to regular treatments.

They provide:

A natural, safe, non-invasive service to aid athletic performance & recovery, pain management, inflammation reduction, health & wellness by promoting & stimulating the body’s natural healing process through cold therapy.

Eau du Jimmy Choo, Flash | Summer Fragrance for the Floral Senses

Jimmy Choo Flash 771x632 Eau du Jimmy Choo, Flash | Summer Fragrance for the Floral Senses

 

So you’re one for adopting a new fragrance, every once in a while, who isn’t? Right when you think you have browsed them all, you’re not quite sure if the one you whiffed before is caring over the scent from the previous and the one you are smelling now has merged all three concoctions of notes. Ah ha! fragrance shopping is just one of those chores. Starts off great, clear frame of reference, then suddenly you are swept into a montage of the last 5 fragrances you sniffed, creating more than a light headed confusion and a lingering nausea.

Though you would love to forget, we’re sure you remember quite vividly. The Valentino smelt just like the Stella, and now over to the Viktor & Rolf only to have the fragrance girl do a cutsey sashay over to the dare we say — Cartier. Even if you narrow down to fleurs, musks or citric blends, the world of nodes is still a new terrain to navigate everytime you take the course.  The curse of the scavenger hunt for the new signature scent and it can’t be rebuked. If you had known any better you would just go around like a 7 year little gal who’s mother won’t allow her to wear any scents, and collect samples from every counter, only to carry them home and try them one by one. That would afterall be quite rediculous.

How does one cleanse the nasal palate anyway? Let’s not reference that sorbet scented body splash you wore as a teen (did someone say Bath & Body). Aside from your choice of stripperesque fruity blends, it’s time to narrow it down. Our choice this season for the update of the fragrance repertoire, Jimmy Choo Flash: It’s both fresh and floral without overloading the senses and has that designer name we’ve come to trust.

For obvious reasons, we’re nerve-wracked to take a chance on anything of lower priced or caliber, so for your reference: this carefully layered beauty retails for $98 at Nordstrom.com. Hopefully it will linger with your chemistry as well as it does with ours. If not, feel free to take one for the team, and head over to your favorite department store and sniff yourself into a dizzy…Thanks!

Inter-Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

Moodboard Uniprice Inter Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

 

Technically, Spring should already have sprung, but here we are, still wearing our winter jumpers and feeling thoroughly sorry for ourselves. Meanwhile, you want to go shopping, but the shops are full of summer dresses and short shorts that you just can’t imagine you’ll get the chance to wear any time soon. This calls for a bit of smart inter-seasonal shopping; choosing key quality pieces that you can rock in this harsh extended winter and the warm summer, if it ever materializes.

The key to a good inter-seasonal look is to pick a fabric that will provide a layer of warmth in winter, but which is also cool and lightweight enough for warmer weather. Dresses are the easiest item of clothing to reboot and when it comes to fabric, jersey is a classic choice. This chic See by Chloe shift is a strong transitional piece. The brightness of the print will perk up a drizzly day and will also work in bright sunlight, and the pixelated cobra print is a great update on the ubiquitous animal print trend.

For cold weather, throw on a pair of tights, some sturdy boots, a lightweight knit and a leather jacket, and then simply update it in summer with a pair of flats and a statement necklace.

Moodboard Uniprice 2 Inter Seasonal Style, Dizzy into Dreamy

Maybe you’re sick of waiting for the sun to arrive, and you’ve decided to jet off to warmer climes and get some sun. We don’t blame you; swapping a soggy commute for a sun lounger and a cocktail is a no brainer.

Looking your best by the pool or on the beach is no mean feat. Of course you’ll need a great bikini and a pedicure, but you’ll also want to make sure your make-up is working as hard as you play, which means choosing waterproof products that give maximum effect with minimum effort.

The whole point of holiday glamour is to look effortlessly chic, so you really don’t want to be performing poolside touch-ups every time you step out of the water. Keep it simple: a pop of lip colour and sweeping lashes will give you a great holiday look with a low-maintenance air. Dab some waterproof concealer under your eyes if you’re feeling a little jet-lagged.

A white bikini is the best way to show off a tan, and is pretty much timeless, think Kate Moss on a St. Barths yacht and you’re there. Curvier girls can’t go wrong with a more retro shape, and strapless styles eliminate the dreaded tan line issue.

By placing items from hundreds of online stores in one convenient place, Uniprice offers a relaxed shopping experience that will leave you more time to plan your summer wardrobe, whether you’re cheating the wintry weather with a multi-purpose outfit, or rocking a stay-put pout and a knock-out bikini.
