Despite being in the thick of summer, Nike Women’s new look book reminds us that fall isn’t too far around the corner. A few personal standouts for me are the Dual Sculpture Tight/Capri and the Tech Fleece Vest. See the rest of the collection (and very cool layout) here at Nike.
This post definitely should have been published a month ago, but, instead of scrapping, here it is anyway since the work was already done. Nike Women hosted their 2nd annual N+TC event in downtown Los Angeles on April 25, and it was killer, as you’d imagine. Nike doesn’t skimp on detail and quality, and it was “go time” from start to finish. While totally different from last year’s beachside event, it was no less fun or inspiring to work out alongside 2000 like-minded women (and a few men!) and some of Nike’s top athletes.
“From the South Bay to the Valley
From the West Side to the East Side
Everybody’s very happy
‘Cause the sun is shining all the time
Looks like another perfect day”
I’m not sure if I’ve ever truly disliked a NTM release, but I have definitely overly loved and admired many of the drops they’ve done, especially in 2014. July’s new 3-pack looks like another stellar set to me as Nike pairs up with husband-wife team Flavio Samelo and Jayelle Hudson, creating unique looks by combing the two artists work into one. Which is your favorite?
Also, has anyone out there ever purchased an NTM product? Worth the money in your opinion?
It’s been a minute since Nike’s released a new NTM, but, appropriately so, the next series up for grabs is in the World Cup spirit. If you’re rooting for anyone outside of the USA, Brazil, France, or England, you’re kind of out of luck, but they’re nice to admire either way. Those red England tights would make nice yoga leggings any day, I think.
Sometimes you get so busy that posts just aren’t going to make it as a priority, and, on the flip side, sometimes you finally find some free time and decide that it’s best to take advantage of that and just relax. As to not inundate with excessive catching up, here’s a glimpse of where I’ve been since I left off on my last Weekend Off Duty:
+ The NTC Tour stop in Santa Monica was tons of fun! We definitely got hooked up between free Fuelbands, free Studio Wrap shoes and lots of great workout classes with master teachers. So, so fun and highly recommended!
+ Best night ever: Kings of Leon at the Fabulous Forum with my brother. We won pit passes, so it doesn’t get much better than that. Unreal.
+ Hiking Solstice Canyon on a perfect morning.
+ First Friday and dinos (!) at the Natural History Museum.
+ Lots of new Forever 21 Active for Spring popping up! We have some exciting stuff coming soon!
+ For the record: my bracket ended up being laughable. And I really want UConn to win tonight.
Cheers to a new week!

Nike just released the update to the Fuelband, the SE, recently, but it’s this guy that’s getting all the girls’ attention. The Rose Gold update, a first release of Nike’s upcoming METALUXE collection*, finally hitting the sweet spot of blending sport technology and everyday wear. They even so kindly showed us how to accessorize it if you wear piles of bangles every day.
I’ve been curious about the Fuelband for a while, but not quite willing enough to purchase. Have you or any friends tried it? What do you think?
Available just in time for Christmas on Nov. 21.
* Is this also the Apple 5S effect?
