Chandon Hosts Summer Fête

 
Chandon hosted an amazing Summer Fête on Saturday night at The Highline in NYC.  The evening was a celebration of the brand's French heritage and unique American spirit.  Guests enjoyed everything from games and delicious empanadas, to a beautiful view, and a high energy performance from the band Powers!  
 


 
The brand debuted a brand new bottle design.  It's festive with red, white and blue stripes and is perfect for serving at this year's 4th of July party! 
 
 
For anyone who has never tried Chandon, it is a gorgeous sparkling wine, and the beauty of it is that it can be served with a range of dishes.  It has a subtle sweetness and crispness that makes it truly refreshing.  It works for elegant dinners, as well as backyard BBQ parties with friends.

One of the evening's highlights, the awesome performance by the band Powers!

Press Preview: Come Back to Earth Natural Spotlight event

 In April, I was invited to celebrate Earth Day with a showing of various natural foods, supplements, wellbeing, home and beauty products from some of Trent and Company's premier clients. The Come Back to Earth event was a fun opportunity to check out items up close.  Check out my choice must haves below! 
 
 
 OYOBox
What better way to protect your designer shades then in a stylish organizer?  The OyoBox  is engineered specifically so you can easily see your collection, protect it and interact with it.  It comes with a shatterproof glass top window, stainless steel ball hinges, washable interior and durable lacquer finish.  Styles include everything from a sophisticated wood finish, to vibrant reds and blues.       
  
 
The Vermont Cedar Chair Company
Available: Vermontchairs.com
 
"Waste not" is the company's sustainable matra, whereby only trees with a trunk diameter of four inches or less are cut down.  This thinning process allows for the larger tree to fully mature.  As only 10% of young tree make it to maturity, the company takes advantage of this natural selection process by using the surplus of wood that would have been forgotten or disposed of along the way.  The Vermont Cedar Chair line includes an Adirondack chair, rockers, lamp and bistro table set to name a few.  The Acadia line is available in six colors, as well as natural wood, and also has an Adirondack chair, mini chair, ottoman and side table. 
  

 
Introduced by Kathryn Sansone, The Shape Up Mom, GreekGirlBeauty is a premium protein powder for nails, skin and hair to give women an all-in-one boost to feel their best.  If you're looking to try a new protein shakes, this one is super tasty.  It doesn't have that chalky, powdery taste that a lot of shakes have.  Instead it has a smooth, natural taste that I could definitely get used to! 


 
Stone Ridge Orchards is a family-owned and operated farm that dries its all- natural plump, fresh berries for delicious nutritional treats.  The fruits are ideal for breakfast smoothies, salads, desserts and as a healthy snack.  They come in unique flavors like Chili Lime, and are know for their Montmorency Tart Cherries.  Keep an eye out for them come the holidays because they will be introducing yummy new complementary nuts!
 

 
Tonnino is hands down the best tuna I've ever tasted.  I can't get enough!  There are a series of gourmet selections, all of which are rich in Omega- 3s, low in mercury and are made from the best cuts of yellow tuna.  I tried a couple flavors and the Jalapeno in Olive Oil was my favorite.  The best part is that you don't need to prep them with mayo or dressing.  They're great on a sandwich, in a salad, or right out of the jar!


 
OxygenPlus offers 95% oxygen in lightweight canisters that are carefully produced and packaged here in the US.  This was so interesting to me!  When your oxygen levels are low, you tend to feel sluggish and tired.  This turned out to work well for those afternoon slumps when I feel like I'm running out of gas.  After a few quick inhales I felt a sharp, refreshing surge of energy.  It's great to have on hand at the office, and I'm excited to try it again after my next workout!      
 
WARNING: Persons with any type of health or medical condition should consult their physician prior to use of this product.    


 
Trilipiderm is a brand new all- body moisture retention crème that is designed to alleviate dryness and rebuild your body's natural barrier to water loss.  I love this because it makes my skin so soft and smooth!

New Launch: NuSkin ageLOC Youth

 
Retail: $180.00 (30 day supply)
 
 
Prominent skincare brand NuSkin, recently introduced it's latest anti- aging supplement; ageLOC Youth, during an exciting event at the Institute of Culinary Education.  Guests learned about its unique blend of ingredients, and later enjoyed a special cooking experience.
 
ageLOC Youth contains ingredients not commonly found in everyday diets such as purple corn extract, alpha lipoic acid, vitamin D, d- limonene, CoQ10, and vitamin K2.  The supplement is advertised to increase energy levels, promote healthy eyes, brain, heart, skin, bones and joints.  It is available here
 
 
 
 
The evening started off with some refreshing glasses of sparking water, gazpacho shooters and delicious hors d'oeuvres.
 
 
  Next, guests headed over to experience the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner for a personal reading.

 
What is Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner?  I'm glad you asked!  It's a non invasive tool that measures your body's carotenoid levels in living tissue, which in turn gives an indication of your body's overall amount of antioxidants.  It's a great way for someone to determine what changes are needed in their diet and which supplements will be the most beneficial to them.  
 
 
Soon it was time to roll up our sleeves and take on the kitchen!  Guests were divided into three groups, and each created a different dish packed with healthy ingredients and antioxidants.

Specialty beverages
 
While dinner was in the oven, guests chose from pine apple, raspberry and mangos to create a customized specialty beverage.  We sipped our cocktails until was dinner finished and finally, it was time to feast!


 

Menu for the night


 
 
 
Overall the night was SO much fun!  The meal was absolutely delicious from start to finish, and I especially loved the salmon- yum!! Who knew we were such good cooks? ;)

Bandelettes are the Summer Hack All Girls Should Know

 Most women aren't very vocal about their struggles with chafing, despite it being surprisingly common.  So if you're one of those quiet birds whose been secretly dreading the upcoming summer months, here's a hack you need to know. 
 
 
 
Bandelettes are chic looking anti- chafing thigh bands that are designed to prevent that nasty, painful rubbing.  Bandelettes' founder suffered from chafing for many years, and set out to find a solution that was stylish, yet still effective.  Worn around the upper thigh, the material acts as a buffer between the skin, and is held in place with two rows of stay up silicon. 
 
 
The brand recently invited press to an event at The Apella Lounge at the Alexandria Center in NYC where we could glimpse their various colors and styles.  Colors ranged from Black and Beige Jasmine, to White Onyx, and Red Romance (to name a few).  You can also chose from lacey styles for a sexier look, or go for the sleeker, more modest sets.  The simpler sets are great for slipping on under a pair of workout shorts before you head out for a jog.  

 
It was a fun filled evening that included drinks, hors d'oeuvres, festive cupcakes, and even professional ballroom dancers.  During the lively performance to Lady Gaga, the female partner wore a pair of Bandelettes underneath her costume to demo how easily they stayed in place.



 
You can snag a pair at Bandelettes.com  for $15.99.  Sizes range from A (S) to F (3XL) so you're bound to find a color and size to fit your needs.
