Activities:

Have you ever heard of Sky High Sports? Just as its name suggests, this indoor activity takes the trampoline to a whole new level of sport. Featuring 360 degrees of trampoline walls in the main jumping arena, separate areas that are specific for playing dodge ball as well as a “kid-friendly” foam pit, this place is a fun-filled experience waiting to happen. The first time I attempted this, I was apprehensive because I thought I’d look silly among the group of hyperactive teenagers jumping off the walls. But, once I got into the arena and experienced it for myself I’ll have to admit that I had a blast.

And, for anyone that wants to experience this sport at a fraction of the cost, you’re in luck! Sky High Sports in Santa Clara just re-introduced “Wild Wednesdays,” where it will only cost $10 per person for two hours of jumping time as opposed to the regular cost of $9 per person for one hour of jumping time, and $6 for each hour thereafter, Monday-Thursday. The price increases to $9 per person per hour on the weekends. For additional information visit the ‘Sky High Sports’ website at http://sjc.jumpskyhigh.com.

Fashion:

Many of us are always scouring new issues of fashion savvy magazines looking for the latest designer trends, falling in love with fall coats, and floral dresses, and $400 dollar jackets, but in reality – we know it is wishful thinking. Although some designer items may be out of reach, other designers empathize with us and have collaborated with major companies to design lines priced at “budget values.” In other words, we have been extended the olive branch – to settle the differences between designer and discount – and these designers are slowly starting to level the playing field.

Jimmy Choo, well known for fabulous footwear, will design a line for our very own H&M. With big name labels already under their belt, H&M is ready to put Jimmy Choo on their wall of fame. The worldwide launch of this collection will be on Nov. 14, so mark your calendars.Tamara Mellon, president and founder of Jimmy Choo, highlighted the goals of this line saying, “Jimmy Choo will bring to H&M a sophisticated, fashion forward, accessible and glamorous collection — the perfect party pieces to buy now and then wear out that night!”

H&M has previously played host to such famous collections and collaborations by Madonna, Stella McCartney, Kylie Minogue, Matthew Williamson, Roberto Cavalli, Viktor & Rolf and Karl Lagerfeld.
