New Line: Pam & Gela

Never been a fan of Juicy Couture, but I like some of the looks from Juicy Founder’s new “California off-duty” line.

The website is only a landing page right now, but the duo says there’s more to come soon.  You can check out some of the looks HERE via The Zoe Report.

"Lucid Stead"

So dope.  So sad I missed this Phillip K Smith III installation at High Desert Test Sites, one of my favorite art projects in one of my favorite places (Joshua Tree).  Smith took an abandoned 70 year old homesteader cabin and transformed it with mirrors & LED lights to reflect the stunning desert landscape.

Message on a bottle! I love these adorable Modern House Wines — a line from Swanson Vineyards — available on the cheap at Target!  Make such great host gifts. View high resolution

Crazy for Onzie

I have been eyeing these online for awhile, in this particular print (sound wave).  So imagine my surprise when, upon completing a grueling inversion workshop this weekend, I found them on the sale rack at my studio!  It was like the universe rewarding me for my hard work.  You can find them HERE.

If you follow my blog, you know about my dissatisfaction with the yoga gear available on the market (in particular the $100+ a pop Lululemon cult!).  I am ever on the quest for finding gear I love, is functional & that I am excited to wear.  These are so fun & flattering.  I am super picky & here, again, is my criteria:

My perfect yoga pant must be…

1. …in the $50 or below range

2. …mid-calf to full-length (so I don’t slip during sweaty inversions & arm balances)

3. …low, wide waistband

4. ..sweat-camouflaging (to hide the ever-flattering crack sweat that is inevitable during heated vinyasa)

5. …FUN

6. …and most importantly pass the see-through bend test when I’m spread into prasarita! 

ONZIE LEGGING VIDEO from The Onzie Crew on Vimeo.

I love Onzie because it was developed by a long-time yogi & is super versatile (sweaty yoga? spinning? swimming? running? surfing? Check!).  They are affordable (especially when you nab them on sale!). Oh, and they’re local!

"At Onzie our philosophy is ‘keep your practice challenging, and your wardrobe simple!’  In keeping with the principle of being inclusive, rather than exclusive, Onzie is affordably-priced and suitable for all activities and practices. Onzie products are made with love in southern California.

Utilizing Free-Flow Fabric Technology that is durable and breathable, this fast-drying material keeps bodies cool, dry and comfortable. Onzie yoga gear is perfect for hot yoga, but can also be used for pilates, spinning, swimming, surfing, running or hooping. Our clothes can be worn as everyday wear or into chlorine and salt water environments. You can transition in and out of yoga postures as seamlessly as you can the rest of your day.  So embrace the awareness of your being, sense your core, and feel secure. Focus on your strength and beauty.”
