This summer, Polo Lifestyles’ Giulia Di Palma had the opportunity to interview Luke Sandys-Renton of Brighton Polo Club, where he is the Club Founder, outgoing Team President and National University Polo Representative. His passion for the sport of kings is obvious and his enthusiasm and kindness made us very happy to get to know him a little bit better. GDP: When did you start to play polo?
LSR: I first tried polo when I was at Hurstpierpoint College; however, I only starte
When I was tasked with writing a column on spirituality, mysticism, and all things Divine and Cosmic, my mind reeled. I found a way to quiet that critical part of my ego that never fails to tell me what I can and can’t do, and methodologically set about on the task ahead. How would I explain to a sophisticated and rational mind that our relationship with the Cosmic and Divine are the most important things we can cultivate for ourselves, and for others? I wanted these answers
The great Nelson Mandela once said, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he-who-does-not-feel-afraid, but he-who-conquers-that-fear.”
With the word fear, people think of spiders, or arachnophobia, but also the negative connotations that come with the word. What we fail to realize is that fear is a natural human emotion that all individuals experience. Although it may be unpleasant, fear does not have to be somethi
Do you feel sore, stiff, exhausted, and broken down after every workout? If this is you, or even if this is not you, start paying attention to your recovery tactics with superior attentiveness.
Resistance training and other variations of fitness and athletic training can cause elevated levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that leads to depression and cell destruction (catabolic). Training can also lead to extreme levels of lactic acid and/or hydrogen ion build up
Singapore may have a famous skyline -- made even more recognizable by this month's blockbuster "Crazy Rich Asians" -- but it’s hard to distinguish the best rooftop restaurants in Singapore. The city is so bright and vivid, so full of energy and countless forms of entertainment, shopping and dining venues, that is hard to simply choose one or two… or three or four. That’s why we’ve decided to bring to you a list of five fantastic places where you can indulge in traditional Asi
With a 100% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, “Crazy Rich Asians” was well on its way to an epic opening when it premiered August 15.
But it was a long time coming. The last big movie that told a story about Asian Americans, “The Joy Luck Club,” came to theaters in 1993. 25 years later, “Crazy Rich Asians,” which is based on the 2013 novel by Kevin Kwan, is the first-ever all-Asian romantic comedy made by a major studio.
Kwan is from Singapore, where the film takes place, an
Few things in life are as exciting as the idea of traveling somewhere else—with a bespoke Louis Vuitton trunk.
About 30 minutes from Paris, in its special-order workshop at Asnières-sur-Seine, lies the heart and soul of Louis Vuitton. This is where LV transforms the desires of its travel-loving clients into reality—explorer Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza’s famous bed trunk, the Maharajah of Baroda’s tea trunk, Ernest Hemingway’s library trunk, and Greta Garbo’s shoe trunk.
From Amedeo Modigliani and Vincent Van Gogh, to Frida Kahlo and Jean Michel Basquiat - I have long pondered how some of the most iconic artists endured such profound personal trauma, and whether perhaps conversely, it was this deep affinity with pain that inspired their masterpieces.
The notion of the tortured artist is far from a new one, in fact, it’s probably as old as art itself. As such, there are several schools of thought on whether an artist can truly even be consid
I have a sister. Our relationship is the one that gives me the most grief and the most pleasure. She has this weird ability to brutally put me in check while being my biggest supporter. That bothered immensely me growing up. But I now realize that only a sibling can serve you the whole truth and nothing but the truth on a shiny silver platter. And that is priceless.
I have personally known Roberta and Sarah for a large part of my life and it is apparent that their bond is s
SEATTLE, Wash. – Cameron Smith’s cell phone wouldn’t stop ringing. “What’s the weather doing? It is raining there?” Blame the weather forecast for Seattle on August 11: rain, rain, and more rain. “Bright and sunny – see you soon,” Smith, the tournament director, replied to every inquiry; but to his team of staff and volunteers he countered: “Don’t tell anyone it’s raining! It’s gonna clear up before the gates open.”
The dark clouds rolling in over Enumclaw, Wash., home to t
