A Family Affair – Nau and Horny Toad Showroom at Mfa HQ.

On Wednesday, April 29th media ranging from VANITY FAIR, HARPER’S BAZAAR and VH1 to CNN, NEW YORK MAGAZINE and The NEW YORK TIMES, attended A Family Affair, hosted by Sustainable Sister brands (say that 3 times fast!) Nau and Horny Toad. Along with reviewing the gorgeous Fall ’09 Collections, guests sipped local and organic wines, brews from Brooklyn Brewery and Eco-Jitos, a new twist on the popular spring and summer cocktail while enjoying passed canap├ęs from Local NY State farms, embodying the over arching philosophy of doing the right thing and being sustainable. Enjoy the outtakes of the night and check out the photos!


"I love the colors of Horny Toad’s fall 09 collection – it reminds me of sunny California days."


"The Horny Toad men’s jackets are fantastic!"




"Every Nau piece looks good on me! Not just because I’m good looking, but because of the gorgeous designs."






"One word to sum up the entire Nau collection: Obsession!"


"Aside from the both Horny Toad and Nau collections totally kicking arse, I was blown-away by the company’s vision."


Mind your mama. Make Mother's Day great and treat her to a fabulous stay at the Lodge at Woodloch, featured in MINDFUL MAMA.

Cayman Islands: Sand, sun and skateboarding.







NEW YORK, New York – Sand and sun are part of any Caribbean vacation. But how about skateboarding?

The Cayman Islands are home to Black Pearl Skate and Surf, one of the world's largest skateparks, and this summer the park is hosting Skate Cayman, a camp that will showcase professional skateboarders and instructors from around the globe.

Skate Cayman will run June 8-Aug. 21 and will kick off with professional skateboarder and snowboarder Shaun White, who has won gold medals at the Olympics and in the Summer and Winter X Games. Other skateboarding pros hosting camp weeks include Bucky Lasek and Rune Glifberg. The camp costs $62 a day or $280 for five days. Minimum age for campers is 4 (kids 4-6 must be accompanied by parent), maximum age is 17. But the skate park itself is open to all ages.

The Black Pearl offers more than 60,000 square feet of concrete and skateboard terrain, with beginning, intermediate and expert levels including concrete bowls and half and quarter pipes with both a flow and street course for each level. The camp will be broken out by skill level.

Families traveling to the islands should check out the Cayman Summer Splash promotion, where kids 11 and younger fly free on Cayman Airways, June 1- Sept. 7, and stay and eat free at various resorts. The offer also covers children's admission to some attractions, including Sea School, the Cayman Turtle Farm at Boatswain's Beach, Stingray City, and some watersports providers. Cayman Airways flies from New York, Tampa and Miami.
