Dr.Edward Alvarez “Bro-Tox” Day of Beauty. Cosmetic Dentist, Wrinkle Eraser and much more…. @NYCLaserDentist

 

The last few years has seen a huge rise in men requesting non-invasive anti-aging outpatient services that were normally reserved for women. Men wanting to look younger but not done are booking Botox, Juviderm, and Kybella injections (removes fat from the chin aka the double chin. 

Dr. Edward Alvarez has been a distinguished cosmetic dentist practicing his craft in The Murray Hill area of Manhattan for almost 20 years. A fellow of The World Clinical Laser Institute, the most respected organization leading to advancement of lasers in dentistry. Dr. Alvarez holds degrees from several top schools including a degree in acupuncture from Harvard Medical School.

About a decade ago Dr. Alvarez discovered the close connection between cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetic enhancement. As we age we develop lines, lips lose their fullness, and skin loses its tightness due to collagen loss.

Dr. Alvarez became certified in dermal fillers for the reduction of facial wrinkles and in lip augmentation. He figured that by closely examining, and charting a patients face, yes he actually plots where the injections will go with a sharpie like pen for accuracy and symmetry purposes, he can achieve the most positive results for his patients. His patients come in to fix their mouths and walk out with both their teeth and faces revitalized.

During the “Day of Beauty” we had the chance to meet celebrity chef Chris Nirschel and former NY Giants Christian Peter, while they spent time with Dr. Alvarez and got pampered.

Wisewear: Fashion meets Tech according to Iris Apfel @Wisewear

 

 

010516-iris-apfel-lead

 

Wisewear was conceived out of the reality that the population is getting older, but is also more fashionable and tech savvy than previous generations. The company collaborated with 94 year fashion icon, designer and innovator Iris Apfel to design the Socialite collection, comprised of three uniquely designed smart bracelets that are equally functional and fashionable.

The primary features of these trackers are the norm and include text, email, calls, footsteps, and calorie counts, but what sets these bracelets apart is the distress signal feature that sends out a signal to ones contacts in case of a fall or other safety emergency.

Originally designed for an older consumer because of the distress feature and a higher price point ($295-$345) it has been discovered that younger women also had a need and a desire to own a trendy fashionable accessory that can go with any outfit and provide them with a piece of mind knowing help is easily accessible if they should need it. Now available for purchase at Saks Fifth Ave and other retailers abroad. #Sponsored

Mike’s Harder Lemonade X Lalo Yunda Collaboration @lalotattoos #HouseofMonkey @Harder

I have wanted to get a tattoo for years and even though my son is a tattoo aficionado with multiple tattoos, I was still reluctant. However, When I was recently invited to attend a pop up shop at The House of Monkey, owned by tattoo artist extraordinaire Lalo Yunda and his lovely wife, I decided to take the plunge. Lalo Yunda hails from Columbia and began his career with a homemade tattoo machine while developing a style of tattooing mixing fantasy and reality with difficult techniques and intricate colorful designs.

To celebrate The launch of Mike’s Harder Tennessee Barrel Lemonade, Harder collaborated with Lalo Yunda to create one of a kind tattoo designs on the Limited Edition Collectible Cans. Lalo, who appeared on Season 2 of Spike TV’s “Ink Master” is a self taught artist whose signature style is described as “magical realism”, which includes mythical elements combined with true to life images. The HARDER inspired tattoos feature designs such as a Skull, Snake, Dragon Horse, Bird, Jellyfish, and Coo-Coo Girl.

Yunda believes “Tattooing is one of the biggest art revolutions in history, and over the course of the next few years, collecting tattoos will of the same caliber as collecting fine artwork”.

Weekend Getaway: Menla, a Catskills Spirituality and Health Resort @Menla

spa-outside-1.jpg.jpg

 This past August we were invited to a Hiking R & R in the glorious Catskill Mountains, specifically to a mountain retreat known as Menla, A Retreat- Resort and a Spa. Only a 2 hour hour drive north of New York City, but a million miles away, when it comes to the peace and relaxation the retreat offers for mind and body.

Menla is owned and operated by Tibet House, located in New York City. The goal of both centers is to teach Tibetan culture, practices, and healing methods to the western world.

Nena Thurman is the director of the retreat and is also the Mahasukha Spa designer, where Tibetan treatments and massage are the focus and the staff is expertly trained in administering them. The Spiritual Leader of Menla is Robert Thurman, an acclaimed author, Columbia University Professor, proclaimed authority on Tibetan Buddism, being the first American ordained as a Tibetan monk in 1964. Nena and Robert also happen to be parents to actress Uma Thurman.

Throughout the year Menla offers several packages and getaways. The Hiking R & R and Yoga are quite popular,as are the retreats that include workshops with Robert Thurman and special guests. As a bonus, the weekend we were there, Mark Epstein M.D. and Robert Thurman held a retreat dealing with Anxiety, Depression and Addiction: Buddhist Psychological Insights for Mental and Spiritual Health in the modern world.

The weekend itinerary includes workshops with lectures by both Robert and Mark, along with meditation sessions, and Q & A’s drew an inspired group, many whom are loyal to both men’s work in their respective fields ,and some making the trek just to hear them speak. The Yoga (Art of Iyenger Asana) retreat was happening simultaneously headed by Carolyn Christie.

Set on 325 green lush acres surrounded by Mountains the retreat is a healing center, a spa, a resort and a meeting center for small like- minded groups and organizations. Menla also welcomes individuals and couples looking for a weekend getaway  (2 night minimum), and includes gourmet vegetarian cuisine throughout the stay with the option to book spa treatments, guided hikes, and a multitude of healing treatments without having to partake in group classes. High- Speed Free Wifi is included throughout the retreat as phone reception is limited. It is highly encouraged to disconnect for a few days to fully experience the healing benefits of Menla.

NYC Fox & Jane Salon Review: Upper West Side @FoxandJane

The Fox & Jane salon originated on the Lower East side in 2011 and has since grown to four New York City locations with a fifth outpost in San Diego. Co-owner and founder Lorean Cairnes explained the theory behind the salon and how she felt there was a niche that needed to be filled. Lorean explained that traditionally in this business high -end salons, a la Madison Avenue, are typically formal and can be conceived as cold where she wanted to create a fun, friendly, and a family environment without sacrificing professionalism, technique, and always being on trend.

Lorean is very creative and when discussing my hair listened to my goals and fears and came up with a solution I would be happy with. With lots of color and highlights in my hair she opted to go darker at the root instead of lighter and added Balayage throughout instead of the typical foils to control exactly where she wanted the color to be. As a long hair person and being fearful of having my hair chopped off she trimmed my hair and added soft layers to give my hair much needed body. My hair is much healthier and more manageable as a result. The products used in the salon are formulated without harsh chemicals and are made for color treated hair.
