INTRODUCING: STYLEST™

STYLEST

STYLEST—a new solutions-based fashion brand—is pleased to announce the launch of their debut wardrobe system: a Swim System™ for Summer 2022. STYLEST’s mission is to design fashion ‘systems’ that offer wardrobe solutions to help women achieve their best personal style as their bodies and lifestyles evolve. With their innovative 3-step Stylest Swim System™, STYLEST also introduces Aqualingerie™, a first-to-market, new fashion category intersecting three major apparel industries: shapewear, swimwear, and lingerie. “Swimwear wasn’t working for us, so we decided to change it. Aqualingerie is a brand new idea in fashion and will give women the freedom to wear the swimsuits they want. Everything we create at STYLEST is a solution, whether it’s support, a fit or fabric innovation, or a multi-tasking outfit maker, we design wardrobe systems that evolve with your life without sacrificing your style.” - Co-Founder, Joyann King Michael (Former Executive Editor of Harper’s BAZAAR and editor at InStyle and Glamour ) Style, systems, and solutions intersect at STYLEST, bringing a fashion-conscious approach and ease to wardrobing. It’s an edited approach to getting dressed created by three trusted authorities in the fashion industry: Joyann King Michael, Alia Yahia-Bosworth (Former Chief Style & Marketing Director at LOFT & ELLE Editor), and Chrissy McCurdy (Former Buyer at Ralph Lauren, Saks 5th Avenue & Komar). The idea for the brand began at a pool party, where Chrissy shared her secret for feeling her best poolside: wearing a bra with her swimsuit. The founders couldn’t believe a bra for the water didn’t exist. Necessity being the mother of invention, Aqualingerie™ was born. Aqualingerie takes the sculpting of shapewear and the function of lingerie to create an innovative, foundational layer to wear under your swimsuit (or even on its own). A behind-the-scenes boost, it is lightweight, fast-drying, and super-sculpting ‘lingerie’ engineered to wear in the water under your swimsuit. Hero pieces include the 6-Way Convertible Swim Bra that goes with all of fashion’s best-selling one-pieces, the High Rise Smoothing Swim Panty with tummy control and waist-cinching capabilities, and the Fully-Boosted Sculpting Bodysuit for the all-in-one solution. “After having my son, I put a bra on to give myself some confidence in swimsuits, and it was my hidden secret. I wasn't going to the grocery store without a bra on, so why wouldn't I be wearing one by the pool? STYLEST’s swim bras are engineered specifically for water and designed to go under swimsuits. Our construction has muscle support that helps lift and shape the bust so you can run after your kids and still look great.” - Co-Founder, Chrissy McCurdy Enter STYLEST Swim System Step 2—SculptSwim™. The brand’s collection of high-fashion, high-compression swimsuits made in STYLEST’s exclusive fabric, BOOST™. Ultra-flattering in all the right places and designed to be worn over Aqualingerie, the collection features the brand’s seasonal style edit of colors, prints, and silhouettes. Highlights include the Sculpting Puff Sleeve One Piece and the Sculpting One-Shoulder Tie One Piece. “Women dread shopping for swimsuits. At STYLEST, we want to change that. As a new mom, my life has evolved, and I rely on systems more than ever. I’ve been styling real women my entire career, and the key is a plan, not pieces. Our swim system takes all the guesswork out of looking great by the pool or beach.” - Co-Founder Alia Yahia-Bosworth Step 3 is the styled pieces that make it ‘a total look’. From a fashionable, SPF-friendly Swim Cardigan to their exclusive water-proof Easy Tie Swim Sarong, these pieces complete the total look but are designed with real life in mind. For launch, STYLEST is reinventing the fitting room experience with a seven-day free trial program powered by TryNow software, allowing our customers to try on our collection risk-free and in the comfort of their own home, not in the abrasive lighting and cramped space of a dressing room. STYLEST’s body-boosting swim system is only the beginning as the brand aims to change the total fashion experience for women as their bodies and lifestyles evolve. ​​SYSTEMS. SOLUTIONS. STYLED EVERY TIME. Prices for the STYLEST Summer 2022 Collection range from $38-$228 Sizes range from XS-2XL, Bras 34B-42G For more information on STYLEST, please visit STYLEST.com.

HowToBet NCAAM Final Four 2022

HowToBet.com

We always ask if you have learned about How To Bet yet. Judging by the views for the How To Bet podcast during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, that may no longer be apropos: now, it is just about how big the first-year sports betting podcast can get. Show co-hosts Daryl Fein and Sean “The Genius” Miller have been joined by show director Nery Rodriguez, and the innovations to the program continue, as the programming expands. During the National Football League season, viewership was steady from Week 1 until the Super Bowl, with linear growth throughout the run. But for the NCAA Tournament, the viewership has jumped: one of the first round shows, about the South Region, did better than the record for views set way back in August 2021 for the debut show of the podcast. On top of that, the live shows, which started for the Round of 32, continued for the Elite Eight, and will end with the National Championship preview this Sunday at 9 a.m. EDT, have seen a new type of format that we haven’t previously experimented with, and it’s turning out to be quite successful. “What can I say about this show, other than it has been a lot of fun to keep it rolling,” Miller said. “I want to say I can’t believe that we are posting these viewership numbers, but I will be honest: I think after our NFL run, which saw us make so much money for bettors around the country and the world, I thought this NCAA Tournament show could have been huge. “The numbers show that we were correct. This is such a massive three weeks for sports betting, and with all the new states and people looking for guidance, I figured we would do some numbers for these shows. You never know for sure when you change formats, adding another person and going live for example, but the people have come out in droves and watched it. “The live shows are really cool, because you can get more up-to-date information to the bettors out there. I think we can utilize it for other sports as well. For me, of course, the World Cup is coming up, so that could be good. For football season, though, we can go live on Thursday in the lead up to the NCAA and NFL games that night.” The success of the three-week run has given Fein and Miller a lot of ideas for the future, which is great news for the How To Bet family. But that is down the road: right now, How To Bet will focus on one of the most intriguing Final Fours in history. If you have been watching, you know who “The Genius” is taking; and if you have been going with his North Carolina picks this whole tournament, you might be way up heading into Saturday. “Yeah, you know where I am going here,” Miller said. “I am a Tarheel born and Tarheel bred. I had them to win the East Region, and I won big with that. No one had them to win the bracket, except me, and I have the ticket to prove it: you can see it on the latest show. Now, UNC gets a chance to spoil another Coach Knight? “Sign me up. And then hopefully, we can get Villanova for a little revenge from 2016. But look, I am excited for this weekend. I have been to the Final Four in 2008 in San Antonio and 2009 in Detroit–where, by the way, I saw UNC win the title–and this is always a cool few days. But it is also the end of the season until November, which is always sad for basketball fans. “For us, though, it is time to end strongly, and then start to figure out what is up next. There is always a next season, and a next sport, for bettors; it never ends, and we want to be there to help the bettors beat the books.” About HowToBet.com HowToBet.com offers one of the world’s most comprehensive betting guides that can be accessed via a user-friendly web app. Its mission is to help make online betting safe, fun and as easy as performing a search on the web. There are already more than 400+ how-to guides freely available, all written by seasoned betting professionals. More guides are being added on a weekly basis in a continued effort to educate anyone interested in what is now a $199 billion betting industry.

San Jose, Washington, D.C., and Austin named host cities for Premier Rugby Sevens in 2022

Premier Rugby Sevens

Premier Rugby Sevens (PR7s) announced its nationwide expansion into new cities in 2022. The league’s tournaments will bring the famous rugby sevens festival experience to Major League Soccer (MLS) stadiums in San Jose at PayPal Park (Saturday, July 9), Washington, D.C. at Audi Field (Saturday, July 16), and Austin at Q2 Stadium (Saturday, July 30). As the first league of its kind with men’s and women’s teams competing under one umbrella with equal pay, each PR7s event will boast a party-like atmosphere with bands, DJs, games, contests, partner integration, and special appearances. Tickets for each event are available at PRSevens.com/tickets. PR7s also unveiled a revolutionary new prize that unites the men’s and women’s competitions, with combined points throughout the season determining the winner of the United Championship. Eight teams compete within four franchises: Experts, Headliners, Loggerheads, and Loonies. A men’s team and a women’s team represent each franchise. “We are extremely excited to scale PR7s across America, bringing rugby sevens to major venues that will act as regional hubs for the rugby community,” said Owen Scannell, CEO of Premier Rugby Sevens. “We believe the Bay Area, Central Texas, and the DMV will give our league a footprint for fans to easily witness the spectacle that is a PR7s live event. Each city brings entertainment options that will complement the festival and party environment that is synonymous with the sport of sevens around the world.” Known as the first professional rugby league for women in North America, PR7s is organizing its first multi-city schedule. The league debuted in October 2021 on national television for a cumulative audience of 472,000 viewers. In 2022, the eight teams will compete in three tournaments consisting of a series of fast 14-minute games in each city, culminating in a 2022 Championship Weekend in Austin. Each stop on tour will crown a men’s and women’s winner. Points will accumulate throughout the season to determine seeding for the Championship Weekend. Austin’s Q2 Stadium will host the championship, the first non-soccer sports event at the facility which opened in 2021. Fifteen Olympians from the Tokyo Games competed in the Inaugural Championship on Fox Sports and TSN. Led by rugby legend Perry Baker, the Experts won the first PR7s men’s championship in 2021. And as one of the most dominant players in the world, Alev Kelter led the Loonies to the first women’s championship last year. “A sincere congratulation to everyone at PR7s as they exponentially build on an impressive debut in 2021 during the Inaugural Championship,” said USA Rugby CEO, Ross Young. “The line of events in 2022 truly amplifies the sevens season this summer, and in three of the best rugby cities the United States has to offer. With three-times the opportunity for current and aspiring Olympians to compete at a professional level, PR7s continues to present an invaluable platform for USA Rugby High Performance development and scouting.” PR7s is sanctioned by USA Rugby, which recognizes PR7s as the highest level of domestic seven-a-side rugby. The new league offers pathways for players to have other opportunities to play internationally. Following their success within PR7s, Logan Tago, Sarah Levy, and Aaron Cummings each took the field for the USA Eagles Sevens for the first time in international competition since last fall. About Premier Rugby Sevens Premier Rugby Sevens (PR7s) is a groundbreaking professional sports league in North America that debuted in 2021. With a focus on accessibility and entertaining content for fans, the league showcases the electrifying sport of rugby sevens through a touring format in cities across the United States and Canada.

LashLuxury is Introducing the First Ever "Clean Beauty" Eyelash Serum to the North American Cosmetics Market

LashLuxury

LashLuxury, a Canadian cosmetic start-up based in Toronto, is bringing their “clean beauty” eyelash serum to the rescue of your eyelashes. LashLuxury was created to help women combat thinning and sparse eyelashes which can be caused by a number of different issues. After extensive research the founders realized that most of the existing lash serums on the market used relatively harsh ingredients with many reported side effects. This led to the development and launch of the LashLuxury Daily Eyelash Serum which uses only “clean beauty” approved ingredients. “We wanted to create the first eyelash serum that not only enhances and supports the eyelash growth cycle but is also non-irritating and avoids all known harmful ingredients,” said Adam Burns, LashLuxury co-founder. “Canada has comprehensive cosmetic rules which prevent the use of prostaglandin analogs, often found in other eyelash serum products, so we needed to find an alternative ingredient. After a ton of research, we discovered that certain peptides are extremely effective at supporting collagen and keratin production which aides in hair and lash strength,” added Burns. In addition to their e-commerce store, LashLuxury publishes helpful articles such as “ The Best Eyelash Growth Products ” and “ Oils For Eyelash Growth ” to help educate consumers on what types of products will work best for their unique situation. About LashLuxury Founded in Toronto, Canada, LashLuxury is a clean beauty cosmetic start-up devoted to helping women combat thin and sparse eyelashes. Their flagship product, the Daily Eyelash Serum, is formulated with gentle yet powerful ingredients that help boost your eyelash growth cycle. You can find all of their products at www.lashluxury.ca and the company ships orders to customers in Canada, USA and UK free of charge.

Odds On Australian Tennis Star Barty To Return To The Sport

Intelligiants

bwin and other leading betting brands aren’t yet ruling out a return to the sport for Australian Tennis Star Ashleigh Barty following the 25-year old’s shock retirement last week as they offer strong odds for her gracing the courts once more. Barty retired from professional tennis on Tuesday (March 23), saying she was physically ‘absolutely spent’. And with odds on for her return, the Queenslander, who has been world number one for 121 weeks, is far from the first sports star to retire and then make a comeback. Just this month, Tom Brady – revered as the greatest NFL quarterback of all time – announced his return to the gridiron after a ‘retirement’ that lasted 40 days. The 44-year old, who has won six Superbowls and holds almost every major quarterback record, retired on February 1 but will return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this coming season for his 23 rd NFL year after tweeting ‘I’ve realized my place is on the field and not in the stands’. There are a host of other sporting legends who found the lure of the game too much to resist after retiring. Among them are boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, who retired no fewer then five times, tennis ace Martina Hingis who quit three times and basketball legend Michael Jordan, who left the court twice before finally calling it a day in 2003.
