Adidas by Stella McCartney Zutan gym bag


I can’t believe I am falling for this but this Adidas bag by Stella McCartney is really groovy. For a gym bag. But if you are vegan and eco-chic, this might be just the thing for you. The grosgrain straps set against the gray nylon is very chic indeed! It also has a rounded balloon shape so it isn’t just another tote, there are side straps that allow the bag to expand so go ahead and throw in your own towel, the gym towels are always too scratchy anyway. The top opens all the way up with a zipper which allows easy access to big items like your shoes, or actually my shoes, size 10 sneakers take up A LOT of room. I don’t even have a problem running around town with this if I have to, I really like it! And the price will really put a smile on your face, only $160 – finally a Stella McCartney for the price that a non-leather bag should cost!! At Net-a-Porter for $160.

  1. The Art of Surprising Her

    You both know you love each other — but every once in a while, it’s a great idea to mix things up and surprise her with

    something that shows just how deep your love and affection really are. Here, some ideas on doing just that …

    The last time you did something special for your wife, did she respond with the requisite peck on the cheek and a demure

    “You shouldn’t have”? Or did her eyes light up with ecstasy, like they did on your wedding day? If you want her to brag

    all over town about her man, it’s time to get your creative juices flowing.

    Researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles recently found that 75 percent of women value creativity over

    material wealth when choosing a long-term partner. But you don’t have to be Baudelaire to prove that she’s your muse.

    Instead, blow her away with carefully planned surprises to show her the resourceful, inventive guy lurking beneath the

    corporate suit.

    “Surprises show her that even when you’re apart, you’re thinking about how to make her happy,” says Patricia Potter-

    Efron, author of Reclaim Your Relationship. Here are a few new ways to improve your marriage with random acts of


    Hire a Chef

    Call her favorite restaurant — whether it’s a five-star eatery or a neighborhood gem — and ask the head chef to pay a

    house call on his night off. Enlist one of her friends to keep her out of the house for a few hours, and time it so that

    the first course is ready to be served when she walks through the door.

    Whisk Her Away

    Make reservations for a Friday dinner date with her, and hide an overnight bag in the car trunk (after you’ve packed it

    with her favorite clothes and shoes). For the kicker, trick her into finding the hotel key or plane tickets you’ve

    tucked away in the glove box.

    Renew Your Vows

    You don’t have to wait until your 25th wedding Trainer Max 94 anniversary to remind your wife why you love her. Surprise her with an

    impromptu ceremony — just the two of you — and commit yourself to each other all over again.
