Gone are the days of the huge blowout drunken bashes where we all drink waaaaaay too much and make poor decisions we regret later. What the world needs now is connection sweet connection. Entertaining with the purpose of connection is where it is at these days and it is a bit of an art. With people’s busy lives and the social media and texting obsession, people crave quality face-to-face time. We need it now more than ever.
Here are my tips on the four elements of great intentional party to help you and your guests connect for a memorable nurturing experience.
In our last What to Wear to Yoga series, we covered the pros and cons of wearing less (i.e. short shorts and bra tops). This week we discuss the benefits of flowy yoga pants acknowledging that body types, environments, or activities require different types of yoga fashion. Here is what The OM Collection recommends for yoga when you want more coverage or a looser fit. Read on to learn why you would want to wear flowy yoga pants for your practice.

It is that time people, the time of year we look forward to in some ways and loathe in many many other ways. It’s the holiDAZE! I want to give you just a few of my humble experience on how to not only survive, but rather THRIVE.
In my huge Italian family (my mom is one of 12 kids!), it was usually mayhem and flat out weirdness. Snapshot…I have one uncle that is 72 with a 35 year old girlfriend who happens to be my brother’s, who is mentally challenged, nurse, which of course pisses my mom off. A few of my other uncles are recovering addicts but have some personality issues happening. A few others haven’t quite hit the recovery stage yet. My mafia (yep) uncle (not blood related, but married to my mom’s sister) always fuels family drama over family money when he shows up. The millions (it feels like) of cousins are running around haphazardly, half of which I don’t know. One year we even had illegitimate cousins that found my uncle over the Internet show up, much to my Aunt’s (his wife) dismay. And me, mid/late thirties, single, no kids, which is, practically blasphemy to my East Coast Italian roots. Yes, this is my amazing, dynamic, family whom I absolutely (now) adore.
The holidays are not about gifts and over indulgence, but rather are meant to be a time to connect and celebrate with family and friends many of whom we don’t get to see very often. While it has taken some time, instead of loathing the whole experience, I decided to set myself up for success.
After much practice, I learned how to ROCK the holidays and here are 7 tips to help you navigate this holiday season.
Here at The OM Collection, we strive to provide functional fashion that keeps you feeling good on and off your yoga mat. This is the first in a series of blogs on what to wear to yoga to assure that your wardrobe never dissuades you from finding your bliss. This series will include a candid discussion on what to wear for different styles of yoga and room temperatures, what cuts work for certain body types and modesty levels, and what is appropriate attire for yoga teachers and students in a class setting, as well as at festivals. Additionally, we hope this blog series helps you find the perfect holiday gifts for the yogi and yogini in your life.
