Your Best Butt At Bünda

July 6, 2018

Imagine if Pilates Plus, Burn 60 and your stairmaster workout had a threesome.
Welcome to Bünda – the best new workout in town. When I saw this peachy pink studio
opening on West Third, my eyes and butt perked up. WHAT COULD IT BE?
Only the best ass workout in town.
I am so in love this workout. As in obsessed. The class is divided into intervals of around ten mins (tops) floor and stairmaster. The floor station is pimped out with rigs, bands, floor slide, booties and more.
It’s total heaven to me!  
Intense intervals – walking, slow, fast, deep, sideways, ‘catwalk’, and skipping steps. Floor work is classic lunges and butt work -with the emphasis on alignment and form. This is what really speaks to me – as a 20 plus year instructor who is also a stickler for form – I knew this was the real deal. Slow. Steady. Deep. Aligned. Specific.
Excellent.

     IMG_1570Here is why we love this machine

  • Helps shape the butt and legs, specifically with the Bünda unique movements
  • Low impact on the joints, unlike running which is very stressful on your joints
  • Allows for intense cardio without burning all of your muscle tone,  compared to spinning and running.
The owners and creators are smart, well-educated master trainers. Lovely too.

ESCAPE ROOMS

Ahoy…me hearties! Feel free to dress and talk like a pirate at Catalina Room Escape, one of two new Escape Rooms to open on the island. The Pirate Challenge allows participants one hour to solve a variety of riddles, discover clues and escape from the room. Info: 310.510.2777. CatalinaRoomEscape.

The rules are much the same at Escape Room Catalina. You and your group of two-to-eight confidants have one hour to crack the code, solve the mystery and escape the room. Room themes change with the season, so the company promises they always have fresh puzzles to solve. The company can set up a challenge at their location, or at a hotel room or vacation rental. Info: 310-510-8575. Escape Room Catalina

ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES

Catalina Aerial Adventure is flying high. Be sure to try it to get your adrenalin pumping. The new ropes-and-planks course weaves through a  grove of towering eucalyptus trees deep within Descanso Canyon. Other adventurous activities nearby include  Zip line Eco Tour and  Catalina Climbing Wall.

HIKING

You haven’t seen the real Catalina if you just visit Avalon. Take a hike into the backcountry on the new-and-rehabbed  Trans-Catalina Trail, part of a 165-mile system of recreational roads and hiking trails on the island. Catalina Conservancy has added 27 miles of new trails, refurbished restrooms and is eradicating non-native plants. In other big news for the Conservancy, the  Catalina Trailhead Visitor Center, being built in downtown Avalon, is expected to be completed in late 2018 or early 2019.

More good news for hikers and backpackers: Catalina Backcountry is operating a concierge service for outdoor enthusiasts. The company will take a load off your back by transporting supplies and equipment. It also offers a naturalist-led hikes, can set up comfort camping or create an adventure expedition. Info: 310.510.1212, Catalina Back Country

TWO HARBORS

Yes, there is a second city on the Island of Catalina. Two Harbors, at the island’s West End, is known for being low-key and rustic. But it has undergone a face-lift, with a new sandy beach, plush palapas, lounge chairs, a group gathering place, food and beverage service on the beach and a small business center. You can take a Catalina Express ferry from San Pedro to Two Harbors. Info: 800.613.1212 Catalina Express; 310.510.4205 Visit Catalina

TOURS

Hope on an eco-friendly bus to tour the island. The all-electric buses are operating on Catalina Island Company tours of Skyline Drive and on Inland Expedition tours. In addition to eliminating the need for diesel or gas, the buses have huge windows, air conditioning and quiet, smooth rides. Info: 877.778.8322, Visit Catalina

Is It Possible To Stay Exquisitely Groomed While Traveling?

June 29, 2018

Summer rush:: buses, trains, cabs, shuttles, jitneys, helicopters and airplanes. Whether it’s business meetings overseas of short-haul flights or trains into distant corners of the US in order to see relatives, holiday, spa or see fam, traveling has become an integral part of modern life, and often we wish to stay looking absolutely on-point for the duration of our journey and, of course, at the end of the journey as well. Here’s how you’ll be able to do it, using a little bit of planning and forethought before each and every journey you take.

Supplies

Gearing up will be a part of your shopping routine anyway, seeing as running out of your cosmetics or toiletries can leave you in the lurch with a morning business meeting on the cards, but it’s especially important to make sure you’re well-supplied before a period of traveling. One idea is to prep a small bag of your essential items packed and with you at all times while you’re on the move. Wherever you are, though, you’ll be able to buy items online such as essence cosmetics, so that you’re never without your favorite brand.

Frequent Checks

In the hubbub or a jet-setting lifestyle, you’ll often find yourself brushing past and against people and objects that throw your look ever so slightly askew. A life on the move will often displace your perfect groomed look, so carrying a mirror on you or visiting the bathroom at intervals during the day will ensure you’re staying immaculate throughout. There’s no need to be too neurotic about this, of course, but a quick flip of a mirror before you enter the arrivals lounge can never be a bad idea – a quick check that everything’s in place and in order.

Change of Clothes

Spilt coffee in transit? Obviously packing a change of clothes is essential. Also, pack heels and  wear the comfy shoes while you travel.

Premium Class

If you can afford it, choosing to pay a little extra for a better class of travel can really make the difference between a cramped, sweaty and uncomfortable journey, and one in which you’re more than able to maintain your exquisite grooming without some of the measures mentioned above. On planes and trains, you’ll find business and first-class seating, while you can pay and book more luxurious bus and coach travel in order to travel with a little more comfort and ease.

One Hour Vegan, Paraben Free, 100% Natural DHA Self Tanner

June 28, 2018

If you are sitting in the sun and soaking up real rays to get tan (and not for a hit of Vitamin D) then STOP NOW!
You know better!
There’s a revolutionary new tanning brand MineTan,  a favorite in Australia and now launching their ‘picture-perfect’ self-tan in the US and I think you all will dig it.
 
MineTan ( www.minetanbodyskin.com ) is a 1 hour-selftanner. Yup. No ruining sheets overnight waiting for your tan to arrive. It contains skin loving, PETA-approved ingredients that truly benefit skin, including moisturizing antioxidants and oils like argan oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, coconut water, shea butter and more. Every product is free of parabens, contains 100% natural DHA and is vegan friendly
All quite unique for a tanning brand, as you may already know.
You can achieve a streak-free, bronzed babe look in just one hour – or leave it on longer for a darker result.
MineTan has an inclusive color range, challenging the industry-wide standard of three (light, medium, dark) size-fits-all approach to tanners, by exploring the nuances of undertone. This really makes the product stand out from the rest.
 
 
Offering a comprehensive range of the most advanced tanning products available, MineTan’s one-hour tan is just one of their many world-first, skin-friendly formulas launching to US customers online and in Ulta Beauty stores. (One is near Target on La Brea and SM Blvd). You can order what type you want (foam, spray, etc) – and the formula for your skin type. It’s as close to custom as you can get!
Other notable groundbreakers include a range of nourishing coconut-water based tans, a fitness tan and a personal spray tan kit.
 
With all of the 1 hour tans, you choose your preferred custom color depth skin finish by deciding when you shower. I love that part. 
And, you can then wash off for 45 seconds and you are good to go, with a personalized tan that is all ‘mine’. Teehee.
