You Are What You Drink
Next time you reach for a bottle of water, try one that sends a message. Naturally filtered State of Mind Water comes in fully recyclable bottles—made from PETE1 plastic, which is phthalate-free and requires less energy to produce and ship than glass—that carry inspirational messages like Love, Compassion and Peace to enhance positive energy toward others and the environment. A portion of the proceeds goes to charities such as A Drop in the Bucket, a nonprofit that builds water wells throughout Africa, and Amrit Davaa, an organization of volunteer health care practitioners who serve the global community. stateofmindwater.com —L.M.
WHAT'S ON YOUR IPOD?
We asked stylist and salon manager Robert DiTacchio, who now works as creative director for the Jon 'Ric Salon and Day Spa in Denver after years of traveling the globe for major fashion and hair shows, what he's been listening to.
"Faxing Berlin" and "I Remember" by Deadmau5. "I like these songs because they have minimalistic sound but a deep ambient tone."
"Day 'N' Nite (Crookers remix)" by Kid Cudi. "It has mainstream appeal but still has an underground feel that's good for a club. I like listening to it when I work."
"Hurt" by Johnny Cash. "You just can't beat Johnny!"
"Just the Tip" by MC Flipside, Joey Seminara and Danny Nagels. "I grew up with Flipside, and he's doing great things in the music industry."
