U by Kotex introduces NYC's first ever period pop-up shop, The Period Shop

National Women's Health Week kicked off on Sunday. What better way to celebrate this amazing time of year than with sharing something that is history in the making. Today, U by Kotex opened up their very first ever pop-up shop in Flatiron, the Period Shop. Located in the heart of the big apple on 138 5th Ave., you are definitely going to want to visit the Period Shop, as it opens today. Next to Victoria's Secret, women can fully embrace the world of menstruation in more ways than one. With everything from a PMS-friendly comfort food bar to live performances to signature cocktails to even digital games and more, this is one of the best places to be today.

What started out as a suggestion, turned into a vision which later turned into reality, thanks to college student and choreographer Sarah Michelson. Not only yesterday did U by Kotex create the Period Calculator, a calculator that tracks and predicts your period and even ovulation. U by Kotex continues to empower women around the world and as a result, make a difference for women and their health. In fact, just by searching #periodprojects you will discover all of the concepts and contributions towards women's health.

“I think many people, men and women, are probably a little uncomfortable thinking or talking about menstruation,” said Representative Grace Meng, Democrat of New York told Roni Caryn Rabin of the NY Times recently. “We’re thinking of how we can change the conversation.”

The Period Shop is open today from 11 am until 9 pm. It is also open tomorrow from 11 am until 9 pm and on Sunday from 11 am until 6 pm. For more information about NYC's first ever period pop-up shop visit U by Kotex today. #UbyKotex

Exclusive Interview with Three-Fourths of an Ounce

Three-Fourths of an Ounce was founded in response to a growing awareness that in our culture there is a taboo around death that has deprived us of a living, vibrant language to speak about one of the most important events and rituals in life. As fascinating as this is, there is a plethora of inspiring products included from Three-Fourths of an Ounce. Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with the founder, Lauri London Freedman about this amazing brand. Here is what she had to say...

(Q) Tell me a little more about Three-Fourths Of An Ounce...
I can tell by your questions that you've already read everything on the website, but I think the welcome letter and the http://www.3-4oz.com/about-us/ is still probably one of the best things I've written about the site as a whole. Also, I'd really like to emphasize how much I hope that the website inspires someone to take another look at a tradition that they didn't think there was a place for in their life. The ideas and products on Three-Fourths of an Ounce are all rooted in ideas and actions that have withstood the test of time and are meant to spark conversation and reinvention as much as they are there for people to adopt wholeheartedly.

(Q) Your products truly do facilitate modern, design-focused products. I have to ask, what inspired you to create Three-Fourths Of An Ounce?
Thank you for that. The inspiration for Three-Fourths of an Ounce was manifold and developed over many years. Both my husband and I were raised as Jewish, but struggled as many young couples do to find the balance between the reason of traditions and the rhyme of reinvention. I found that the world supported creative expression and offered endless inspiration when we were celebrating weddings or births but that when it came time to celebrate a life well lived or grieve a life cut short there was nothing there. I craved and needed a way to offer my condolences and say what was in my heart without feeling like I was breaking rules. Three-Fourths of an Ounce was born from the belief that I couldn't be alone in that struggle and that there must be other people who also needed help finding the right words or the right gift when it felt like there were no words that could be adequate.

(Q) I heard you collect rocks. My second home is in Bozeman, Montana and I am always finding some sort of rock that I wanna pick up and take home with me. I want to ask, what else do you like to collect?
First of all, I adore Bozeman. I was there with my kids during the potato festival a few years ago and I've never seen so many happy kids with potato guns in my entire life. It's actually my oldest son who collects the rocks. It's a small collection of beautiful rocks he's gathered from all of our travels. All three of my kids seem to have inherited my collectors' gene and wherever you look in our home you'll find a little collection of something. One of the first you'd see is a collection of small, vinyl toys that started with a little set of Disney figurines about 17 years ago and has grown to hundreds of little art toys in that time. It is a wonderful and wacky assemblage of collectibles from artists like Takashi Murakami and Tara McPherson and then more mainstream little figures like Smurfs from toy stores wherever we find ourselves.

(Q) You have quite a few products that really caught my attention. One in particular was the "Weight of the Soul" piece. Tell me a little more about this piece...

The story of Duncan MacDougall is one that has captured my imagination and inspired me in many ways. I haven't done exhaustive research on his methodology or the minutiae of his work which has allowed me to create an almost unimpeachable version of him in my head. I imagine him as a man - a fairly crazy man--who wanted desperately to use his vocation as a scientist and a physician to support his religious beliefs that God exists. I imagine him as someone who saw the tide of society turning and he passionately and fervently wanted to hold it back. That story was both the inspiration for the name of the company and this gorgeous carved stone that Ted has created for us. Each one is hand carved and finished and is completely unique. They weigh 3/4 OZ which is, as you know by now, what Dr. Macdougall determined was the weight of the soul. Ted and I have come to think of each of them as a little soul unto itself and they are the most wonderful little objects to hold in your hand.

(Q) When you choose products you want to place in your store, do you select them yourself? Tell me a little more about the designers of the products you sell at Three-Fourths Of An Ounce...

Each object that is available on the Three-Fourths of an Ounce website has been designed just for Three-Fourths of an Ounce with a designer who I've admired for years.
For details on each of the designers that helped create each of the Three-Fourths of An Ounce objects, please visit http://www.3-4oz.com/about-us/designers/.

(Q) For those individuals reading this interview, what would you like them to know about Three-Fourths Of An Ounce?
I hope that both the journal and the objects on the website inspire people and provide some tools to find and share compassion in the aftermath of death and illness. I hope they are pieces of a larger revolution in the way we approach commemoration and that they offer people beautiful, thoughtful and creative ways to mourn and remember.

Remember 9-11-01, it's been 11 years

On September 11th 2001, I remember I was writing a dissertation and studying for a test. All of the sudden in the earlier hours of the afternoon, I was hammered with a ton of phone calls from family and friends, including those that lived in New York. Everyone proceeded to ask me about the news and insisted that I turn on the television. I was in utter shock when I saw what happened.

One of my friends who happened to work a few blocks away said she saw the people from a distance running down the stairs and a few actually jumped out of the windows, in effort to escape. Another friend saw the same thing exact thing. Very disturbing.

This is a tragedy that will affect a lot of people forever. It has manifested in war and even hate towards certain religions and groups of people. As an Iranian American woman I can honestly say that this radical yet horrible tribulation has affected me highly.

On that day, 4 days after May, this is all I have to say... Let's remember 9-11-01. My prayers go out to those who are still suffering from what happened on this day. RIP to the victims.
 
WTC Site. According to several workers, it is expected to be completed in early April 2013.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

The Freedom Tower almost looks finished...

Although the estimated completition for the Freedom Tower (or one, World Trade Center building) is expected to be completed sometime in early April of 2013, it seems as though the workers have managed to get a lot of completed already. I am looking forward to the end result.

Top 10 Places to Find an Amazing Salad in NYC

Salad.
(Photo by Sarah Afshar)
New York City is the largest city in the United States. Finding a salad in the Big Apple can be potentially overwhelming and time consuming because there are so many eateries that offer salad. After trying an array of places, I have decided to narrow down the many restaurants to only the top 10 places to find an amazing salad in New York City.


10. Kool Bloo. New York City is home to millions of people, and out of those millions of people, there are many who are reading this article right now, looking to find a place that offers an amazing salad. If you looked for a delicious salad, look no further, as Kool Bloo is the place. Located in the heart of the big apple on 221 E. 23rd St. in between Second and Third avenues, Kool Bloo remains to be one of the best places to find a wonderful salad in the city. The fresh entree salads are amazing and are served with full sized pita bread. Delivery is available and out of the many restaurants that offer this service, Kool Bloo has one of the best. Kool Bloo is open every day from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 a.m. but offers a 24-hour delivery and pickup service. For more information about Kool Bloo, simply call 212-679-5665 today. Kool Bloo is one of the top 10 places to find an amazing salad in NYC for 2011.


9. Carve. I don't know how many times I have to say how much I not only appreciate, but love discovering new restaurants that offer great foods, including salad. If you are looking to enjoy an amazing salad in New York City, I definitely recommend Carve. Located in the heart of NYC on 760 Eighth Avenue at 47th Street, this place truly is a force to be reckoned with. As much as I love the sandwiches, the salads are incredible. You also get to customize and/or create your own, using an array of fresh ingredients. Delivery is available. I want to also add that the delivery service is great here. Carve is open everyday, 24 hours. Yes! 24 hours. Whether you want to eat early in the morning or late at night, you can. For more information about Carve, call 212-730-4949 today. The next time I visit the big apple, I think I am going to go to Carve to enjoy a nice salad.


8. Brooklyn Label. When it comes to enjoying amazing good, there is so much to look forward to. Not just incredible taste, but the actual presentation, as well as, quality of the food. If you are looking to enjoy an amazing salad in NYC, I definitely recommend Brooklyn Label. Located on 180 Franklin St. in Brooklyn at Java St. lies Brooklyn Label. Although I am in love with the French toast here, I have to admit that the salads here are incredibly delectable. They are also huge and you get what you pay for. The salads change from lunch to dinner, so you can expect to try new gourmet salads every time you visit. Delivery is available.
