H71626735 Khaki Field Auto Chrono in Jack Ryan 2

Launching today to Amazon Prime Video, is an original series based on Tom Clancy’s “Jack Ryan” starring John Krasinski as the title character.

He is accompanied by his striking timepiece: the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono.

Rugged, robust and ready for anything, the watch parallels on Hamilton’s rich military history.

(On a side note, the brand has also appeared in over 450 major motion pictures since 1932 at its inception.)

Blacked out. Murdered-out. Talk about delicious (… imagine the visual feel, sans practicality, of a mixed media matte and glossy Lotus Exige Stealth in the form of a timepiece.)

Hunger Games Mixology: DISTRICT 7,8,9,10,11 and 12 Cocktails

By: Ashley Bryce, Liana Cole and Sasha Muradali

Each year the Hunger Games are held inside the Capitol, in the county of Panem.

Panem rose out of the rubble that once was North America and had thirteen districts that surround it, each having a unique purpose. Tired of servitude, the thirteen districts of Panem rebelled against the Capitol and the nation turned into a battle ground.

In the end, the Capitol held down the resistance and District 13, known of its nuclear power, was destroyed in a disaster.

The twelve remaining districts signed the Treaty of Treason and the Hunger Games were born as a punishment for the costly rebellion.

Each year the districts have to sacrifice one girl and one boy, known as tributes, to the games. These tributes engage in a battle to the death with
one survivor.

The victor who goes back to his or her district with fame and fortune.

In recognition of these yearly games, we present drinks for the remaining 6 districts of Panem.

Happy

Hunger Games!

Cachaça & Carnaval: Couture Culture with Brazilian Style! [GIVEAWAY]

Ah, Brazilian culture – it’s beautiful. So dynamic, so fervid and so unique.

As the only Portuguese-speaking nation in Latin America, it’s the land of the caipirinha, botos, the Amazon, samba and carnaval.

Where energy independence and strategically using their natural resources, have thrust them from third-world economic status to hosting the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympic Games in 2016.

Brazilian Style by Armand Limnander, Assouline’s most anticipated release for autumn, is the quintessential guide to celebrating and understanding the richness that is Brazil: the architecture, fashion, beauty, culinary arts, and culture.

Hardcover, 208-pages, rich colour and described as

Pelé, Oscar Niemeyer, caipirinhas, Sonia Braga, Vik Muniz, Ivo Pitanguy, Ipanema, Tropicália, and more…

Brazilian culture is rich with artists and architects, models and screen stars, festivals and religions.

Brazilian Style exports the country’s best—including legendary icons from the past as well as contemporary, cutting-edge trendsetters.

With evocative photography and succinct, fast-paced texts, the book takes readers on a curated tour of the most important symbols of modern and traditional Brazil.

Combining high and popular culture, Brazilian Style is a fresh and dynamic mix, capturing the spirit of one of the most vibrant nations on earth.

Splashed with delicious photographs, Brazilian names such as the gorgeous Gisele Bündchen, fashion designer Francisco Costa and the world’s best rubber flip-flops, Havaianas, grace the pages. [Read more…]

{Bookworm Review} Q & A with Mari Ruti on “The Case for Falling in Love”

In a world where today’s relationship industry is generally annoying and oozing with commercialized fads, amongst other sets of nonsense,The Case for Falling in Love by Mari Ruti, PhD  is refreshing, insightful and not overly simplified.

Image by Sasha H. Muradali. All Rights Reserved 2009.

Yes, it’s self-help, but of the tolerable and conventional kind.

After all, Ruti was educated at Brown, Harvard and the University of Paris, where after finishing her doctorate at Harvard, she spent four years as the assistant director of the university’s program for the Study of Women, Gender and Sexuality.

But don’t let her academic background deter you, her easy to read book, makes you feel like she’s talk to you and not at you.

According to Ruti, some destructive thoughts are that:

  • …men and women are hopelessly different.
  • …in order to attract a man, women must hide their strength, feelings and desires.
  • …the only way to catch and keep a man is to manipulate him into new ways of thinking.

She says that these ideas have not only been proven wrong by reality (and history), they’ve proven to be destructive to women’s emotional makeup and psyche.

In The Case for Falling in Love, Ruti urges women to ignore the noise, and redefine how they look for love; what they look for in love, and why they are looking. [Read more…]

{so·cial me·di·a} is media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques.

Not too long ago there was no such thing as Social Media Marketing, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or any others you can think of.

My first year in college was the fall of the year 2000 at St. John’s University where I eventually declared my major to be in Communication Arts.

Ironically at the beginning of my journey, the only communication I was doing was either in person or through my dorm room land line.

The biggest thing happening online was AIM and instead of updating my status, I was leaving away messages.

I didn’t have a cell phone yet, nor did any of my ‘suite-mates’ as we called our roommates who shared our suite-style dorm. [Read more…]

Drugs, Sex & Lies Revisited: Sweet Valley Re-Emerges 10-Years Later With CONFIDENTIAL

Holy heck and some, the drama of the drug-infested, kidnapping-crazed, sex-obsessed world of Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High series has returned!

Mark thy calendars because 1983 will return with a lusty, vengeful twist on March 29, 2011.

That is the date set for the release of a new book, Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later.

At the popularity of its fame, Sweet Valley High were the books for young girls across the globe as they chronicled the drama-filled lives of 16-year old twins Elizabeth (the good one) and Jessica Wakefield (the not-so-good one), the “perfect” California twins with eyes “exactly the colour of the Pacific Ocean.”

The new book, to be published in hardcover form, is not a teen book [Read more…]
