Friday's Yoga Finds

September 30, 2011
My life has been so busy lately, dealing with collaborations and NY Fashion Week, among other exciting things, that I haven't been finding as much time to exercise as I'd like to.  I've been looking into new ways to get my cardio in, and Dj Sly told me about Yoga To The People.

Yoga To The People Mantra

As stated on their website, Yoga To The People is a unique yoga studio with the goal of recapturing what they consider to be the essence of yoga… simply put, yoga made available to everyone.

There are so many great things about YTTP- they run on donation-only, so classes are pay what you wish ($10 suggested donation), they have a very open schedule (there is a class about every two hours, 7 days a week), and they have 5 studios in New York (they also have studios in Seattle, San Francisco, and Berkeley).
And even if you aren't able to get to one of their studios, don't fret!  You can listen to one of their podcasts and flow-along with them.  Or watch one of their videos on YouTube (which I have been doing b/c unfortunately I have not been able to get there like DJ Sly. My Schedule in Aug to the end of Sept. is 6am to 4am literally non-stop. NO sleep for this girl on a mission)

Because yoga is the perfect amount of cardio and strength training combined with relaxation and meditation, I find it to be the perfect way to both exercise all release all of my tension at the end of the day.  After yoga, I feel rejuvenated and refreshed!

Quote of the week

September 29, 2011
I found this quote back in April and had to share it again. It's a great way to remember to take initiative and that being a leader is a very positive thing.

"Sometimes you just have to take the lead and build your wings on the way down" -Kobi Yamada

How amazing is this jacket?!
you know I love rocking anything with Birds/Eagles on it. Because my last name sounds like Eagle and I love butterflies and flying :)

What quote inspires you?

I wanted to dedicate this blog post to this amazing fresh band and images that remind me of their music :) And Shoutout thank you to DJ Jared for introducing them to me.
What do you think of Milo Greene?

Boy Meets UNIVERSITY Girl!

September 20, 2011

Over the weekend I took the Boy Meets Girl(R) DJ team right off of NYFW to Penn State University to launch our first ever UNIVERSITY event called "The Ultimate College Fashion Experience(c)" and what we have trademarked as #CollegeFashionWeek (CFW)! Sunday Sept.11th was the Boy Meets Girl(R) NYFW show and this past Sunday Sept.18th was our CFW show! To say we are all tired busy bees is an understatement. But, this month is fashion madness and it is what we all love. So the hard work does and will pay off (a lesson I keep learning)!
I cannot describe how thankful I am for such an incredible DJ team. Each one of you worked so hard and continue to every second to get all in order with me to build an EMPIRE. THANK  YOU!

There is so much to report on from PSU. So I thought I would give you highlights in my crazy fashion busy style :)

1. PSU students love Candy. Thank you Campus Candy and CMO/CD Jake Udell for your hard work and hosting this CFW event with me and the team. We loved having a fashion show in a Candy Store! Shout out to the the most amazing store manager Sean who helped us on site to make sure all was in tact :) We heart you and your hard work! Also Thank you to The Collegian and reporter Kendra Lief  for covering the event. Check out full article here
2) Thank you to our celebrity hair and makeup artists below who made the models look AMAZING and drove in from NYC :)

Elisa Tallerico & Betsey Reyes
 3) Thank you to the incredible models!!! There were 9 models just like NYFW. The shots below were taken on my blackberry getting ready so missing a few girls below but they will be captured this week on the www.boymeetsgirluniversity.com site!

4.  Thank you to the girls below who came to my D.I.Y. session and asked me questions on building Boy Meets Girl(R). You were all soooo smart and asked such key questions. Look forward to learning more about your next steps! Keep in touch :)



5.  I was really in a Candy Store all day so unfortunately didn't get to see all of the PSU campus but THANK YOU for having me and my team. BAD GIRLS EAT CANDY t-shirt below sold exclusively at all Campus Candy stores and here- 5% of all retail sales from store sales and 10% of all retail sales will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition for breast cancer http://youngsurvival.org/partners-and-sponsors/partners/ in dedication of my dear friend Kristen Martinez.


6. Clearly I love to share with you all the details of everything happening with me Behind the Seams and sometimes have a hard time narrowing down everything I want to share...so thankfully my web series "Behind the Seams with Stacy Igel"  (which is now exclusive to Lockerz.com) is on the next 8 episodes with me to capture the whole journey from NYFW to CFW- and will be airing in December! I will update you when the webseries goes live!

7. And again thank you to all partners involved in this "The Ultimate Fashion Experience" 1st stop at PSU.

Summer is winding down, and Fall is coming fast.  Time to change that wardrobe and your hairstyle.  I've been seeing a huge trend is manipulated braids lately- from fishtails to waterfalls, braids are everywhere.  The hard part is figuring out how to do these detailed braids, but the easy part is rocking them!

Inspiration Through Watercolor

September 14, 2011
Lately, I have really been drawn to artists who use watercolor paints as their medium-of-choice.  One of my new favorite watercolor artists is agnes-cecile.  What I find so unique and amazing about this artist is that she records herself painting each one of her masterpieces and uploads them to her YouTube channel.


This is one of my favorite videos of agnes-cecile's
I love the music that is perfectly paired with the performance
Video found here

By recording and publishing how her artwork is created, she creates, not only an amazing piece of watercolor artwork, but also an amazing performance art piece.

Photo found here

I find agnes-cecile's artwork truly inspiring and her new views on watercolors as pure creativity.

Which one of agnes-cecile's videos or paintings is your favorite?
