As we begin this new chapter in Cine+Mas history, we take into consideration the past year’s dramas, triumphs, and hard work our group and community has endured. We move through 2016 with new purpose: a vision that celebrates where we’re from and welcomes the future with the gleaming faces of Divas of the Golden Era of Mexican Cinema.

Our mission with this festival this year is to showcase the innocence of what was once new territory for the Americas in film. We’ll share stories of our journey. Celebrate monthly up to September with film and dinner events. Join us. Get in early as a contributor and please share our stories with your friends and family.

¡Nos vemos en el cine!

BALMAIN STUNS WITH THEIR NEW MUSE

December 17, 2013 § Leave a comment

ImageI’m resurrecting this blog in honor of Balmain‘s new muse, the almighty Ri-Ri. Sure it’s a little dramatic, but occasion calls. This Spring 2014 campaign blew my slippers off last night. Not only are musicians increasingly being used in brand campaigns, they are also adding a new, longer lasting impression of their respective brands across a number of channels.

CoverGirl stands out a brand that weaves musicians into their campaigns, too. It’s such a smart move for marketers because music ties into emotions and leaves impressions. Musicians aren’t just models, they represent something unique to each consumer. Each has some kind of an emotional tie to their music. And music, as we all know, resonates with individuals on a base–inside the soul–level. Don’t you agree?

Rihanna is a total rockstar and now, so is Balmain.

Fashion Night at SupperClub

Wed., March 16 I took part in Angeleno Magazine’s Back Stage Beauty Event, just to check out LA’s fashion week festivities.

There was a showcase of designers including Tony Cohen, Ghita, Adolfo Sanchez, J.C. Rags and D.E.P.T. and it was a packed event as you can see from the photo.

There were appearances by Ray J, his entourage, acrobats and opera singers.

It was a lot of fun and interesting to see LA fashion and Hollywood fuse that night.

Yoga: A Natural Pain Reliever

July 24, 2009 § Leave a comment

Would you like to experience more relaxation, fewer headaches and more patience in your life? Yoga is a perfect way to relieve those ales while learning meditation practices. It’s an alternative to working out by “working in” to tone your muscles with your mind.

Yoga helps reduce insomnia, headaches and levels of anxiety too. The yoga attitude is all about being gentle to the body. Approach practice using an ease with the body, probably something that is put on the back burner during your regular day to day to do’s.

Child’s pose eases tension from the brain. It also stretches and lengthens the back, relaxes facial muscles and eases strain from the ankles and shins. Click here for a picture of the pose.

Do you think you have restless leg syndrome aka a pharmaceutical company fabrication of a disease to sell product? Instead of turning to drugs for relief, put your legs up against a wall.

This simple little yoga pose will relieve leg fatigue, rejuvenate circulation and regulate blood pressure. It is claimed that the pose prevents varicose veins as well. Some yogis even attest to this pose preventing wrinkles.

On a side note, those with serious medical conditions such as cancer, glaucoma or heart disease do need to consult a physician before attempting inversions and the more aggressive yoga poses.

Other benefits are lower blood pressure, stress relief and patience. Try the head to knee pose for stress reduction. Go as deep into the pose as you can, remembering to be gentle to the body and consciously breathing deep.

The mind interestingly becomes intensely aware. Poses like revolving triangle pose stimulate right-left brain coordination. The pose also massages internal organs, energizes the body and relieves lower back discomfort. Again focused or meditative breathing during these poses is essential for these benefits. The most powerful benefit of the practice is proper breathing.

Benefits of proper breathing include enhanced concentration, improved digestion, improved circulation and stamina. The power of meditation can improve so many areas of brain function. It is scientifically proven to strengthen focus and enhance memory along with a slue of other benefits.

Simply focus on inhaling and exhaling. It’s ok if your mind drifts, return to focusing on your breath. Each time it meanders off on an idea, just bring it back to simply focusing on breathing. Once your focus is maintained, imagine your lungs inflating and deflating. Imagine the air circulating throughout your head, limbs, chest and torso.

This is a quite conversation with the body that enhances meditation. Do this with the above mentioned poses for a some relief. Namaste.
