Soul Carrier Releases Limited Football Leather Handbag Collection at Phoenix Luxury Resorts

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- As Phoenix hotels and resorts prepare for the influx of guests attending the Professional Football Championship Game in February, fashion-conscious visitors who love football are sure to get excited about Soul Carrier's new football leather handbag collection.

A clutch and purse, made from the same leather that's used in manufacturing official footballs, will make a fashion statement at the big game or watching party.

Jennifer Paige Boonlorn, founder and lead designer, Soul Carrier, says that she loves to find unique materials and then figure out ways to fashion them into handbags that age gracefully with use. She also enjoys staying on top of current events and trends.

So, when Boonlorn, a Parsons School of Design graduate, learned that Phoenix was going to host the big game, she got busy. She wanted to create something super special for Soul Carrier's local retail partners in the Phoenix area.

"Arizona Biltmore has a long-standing commitment to supporting our local businesses, and a big part of that is curating our 'Only at Biltmore' shop to include high-quality, unique and locally-sourced brands - like Soul Carrier," Madison LaBerge, Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, says. "We can't wait to offer our guests something special to take home in memory of such a monumental event like this year's big game."

The early stages of Boonlorn's research about leather footballs led her to The Tannery Row, a leather outfitter in Chicago that distributes Horween leather, the official leather used in manufacturing professional footballs.

"I love seeing Horween Football Leather being used in new and unique ways and these Soul Carrier handbags are a perfect example of just that," Kyle Gerber of The Tannery Row, shares.

So, with the release of these fun and luxurious, football-themed handbags, football fashionistas can sport a bag that not only gives a nod to their favorite sport, but keeps them looking super sharp and stylish too.

World’s Only Truly Immersive Sports AirBnB Gets Visits – and Competition – from Pro Athletes

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A massive 54 acre sports-themed AirBnB style resort near Orlando is defying what market experts are calling the "AirBnBust," Orlando Area Luxury Rentals LLC announced today. The Lake Louisa Chateau, adjacent to the beach at Central Florida's Lake Louisa State Park, is a dream come true for sports lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Sports legends and celebrity athletes have already begun to take notice and are vying not only to stay at The Lake Louisa Chateau but also to compete there.

During his staycation at the estate, recently retired NBA player DeMarre Carroll toppled the high score on the Chateau's arcade basketball game but his achievement was soon outdone by a high school teen whose family rented the estate soon after. Only weeks later, former Titans player Michael Harrington stayed at the estate and tied what now remains the current high score of 422.

With families travelling from all over to stay at The Lake Louisa Chateau, it's only a matter of time before another amateur athlete pummels a pro's high score.

While AirBnBs around the nation are beginning to go belly up, The Lake Louisa Chateau has clearly hit a home run and stays impressively booked throughout the year.

Owner David Canther says that part of the secret to what he terms his "AirBn-SLAM DUNK" is providing a unique and immersive experience. "When you pour your heart and soul into making a house, people will pick up on that energy and come to play - and stay."

The Lake Louisa Chateau sports mansion also offers a huge screened-in pool, karaoke, home theater, inflatable human foosball, Connect Four hoops, boating, fishing, and more.

AIRBNBUST? Nope! Thousands are Busting Down Doors To Get To Stay At This One

ORLANDO, Fla. -- During what market analysts are calling the "AirBnBust," at least one savvy host has found a way to thrive. While thousands of AirBnB owners are bemoaning losses and contemplating selling off their properties, Orlando Area Luxury Rentals' "Great Escape Parkside" is already 86% sold out for 2023. In fact, this game-themed AirBnB now has a waiting list for June and July.

How is success possible in what analysts are predicting will be the worst year in history for many AirBnB hosts?

Owned by designer Andrew Greenstein, The Great Escape Parkside, which can sleep a whopping 54 guests (but regularly caters to groups of just 20-30 people), specializes in family reunions and corporate retreats. Greenstein's "game house" re-defines the "AirBnB" concept by providing not just a place to sleep but rather, an entire resort-like vacation "experience." The home's proud owner says many of his guests come to Central Florida just to experience this property and do nothing else locally during their visit.

The success of this 10 acre gated "game house" mansion has captured global media attention over the last few years. Its gigantic swimming complex includes the world's only billiard table pool (yes, a "pool pool"). A super fast waterslide plunges swimmers towards a mosaic "cue ball" while a theme park worthy lazy river wraps around the whole thing. Behind the swimming "pool pool" is a 12-foot tall inflatable "soccer dartboard." Next to that is "human whack-a-mole." Oh, and there's a one-half basketball court, inflatable soccer billiards, and a custom-designed gigantic "Never Be BOARD Game" out back too!

Inside, there's not one but two fully immersive escape room experiences themed around popular games like CLUE and RISK. The are multiple arcades and even a carnival midway "tent" area including a skeeball machine and a hammer strike. Not to be outdone, there's also an actual high-tech laser maze bedroom and, of course, a karaoke sound stage and a movie theater too.

Great Escape Parkside isn't Greenstein's only unique AirBnB style property. He owns 4 of these themed giants and helped design and list a 5th one. Each one's calendar is filling up quickly for 2023 despite analysts' gloom and doom reports about the impending "AirBnBUST."

But Greenstein says there's "more to his secret sauce" than just unique home concepts. "Part of it," he divulges is "just plain good old-fashioned customer service."

While AirBnB has is becoming sometimes known for impersonal hosts, unavailable property managers, and jacked up pricing, Greenstein prides himself on providing customers with what he calls a "6 star experience" from the moment they first contact his team through checkout and beyond. Their response time to any questions is lightning fast and extremely personable.

They go out of their way to make each family feel special and everyone in Greenstein's employ knows to "spare no expense" and "do whatever it takes" to keep guests not just happy but "blown away."

As a result, Greenstein has built up an enormous client database with tremendous goodwill and repeat business. "This," he says with the grin of a kid who just won their favorite board game, "is our security. THIS is what provides us with enough bookings in a 'down economy' to persevere. We have built our own audience and brand loyalty."

Indeed, the Great Escape Parkside has earned nearly 300,000 loyal Facebook followers while most AirBnB operators debate whether social media is "worth it." Essentially, it's an AirBnB that has transcended AirBnB.

Struggling with your rental during the "bust?" Greenstein's example proves that with the right attitude, there is hope.

The 60th Anniversary Celebration of the Producers’ Consortium for Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG debuted two new projects

SOLIGHETTO, Treviso -- At Villa Brandolini, on the occasion of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the birth of the Consorzio Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG, two new projects were presented, of which the first, the Green Academy, will be an incubator for research, studies, content and new ideas that will enable producers to work in an ever more structured, consolidated and concrete way for the sustainability of the region.

The creation of the Green Academy marks an important point in the continuum that the Consortium has been pursuing for at least a decade, with an eye towards the future and the enhancement and conservation of the environment, of the landscape, and of viticulture.

"We are proud and highly motivated to proceed in this direction: the Green Academy offers a path which will allow us to take full advantage of our knowledge in collaboration with experts in the various sectors that this subject involves," states the Consortium's President, Elvira Bortolomiol. She continues: "Our zone and our community are precious gifts, and it is for their benefit that we have the duty to avail ourselves to the best of our ability of our expertise and the resources we have, so as to be able to offer a real contribution to our terroir and also be a point of reference for other regions."

"Our Green Academy will study the most urgent topics that the global environmental agenda has to deal with, and then tailor them for our zone," says Diego Tomasi, Director of the Consorzio di Tutela del Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco. "First of all, climate change: we are already working together with Banca Prealpi and the University of Cantabria, with the objective of creating models for forecasting any extreme atmospheric events that may occur in our hills between the present and 2030, 2050 or even 2100."

A group of internationally renowned Egyptologists has studied, specifically for the Consortium, how the Ancient Egyptians succeeded in cultivating vines in extreme climatic conditions; their research goes as far back as 3000 years B.C.. The complete results, expected in mid-2023, may give concrete clues for putting mitigatory actions into effect on our hillsides.

"But we're already doing something tangible with regard to drought," Tomasi adds, "by focusing our attention on recuperating, conserving and reusing rain and spring water." Indeed, in the 5th tender for our supply chain, which was presented very recently, the Consorzio included a specific, generous sum for financing the creation of small basins designed for collecting water from corrivation; the University of Padua will be responsible for this activity. Moreover, the plan is to recuperate water diverted from the Piave river, an activity which the Consortium is working towards in conjunction with the Municipalities in the Denomination, trade bodies, and the Association for Reclamation of the Left Bank of the Piave.

Another important topic with regards to sustainability is land use, which will be dealt with by the Green Academy thanks to the creation of a permanent observatory. As of today, the area of the Denomination is used 30% for viticulture, 57% for woodland, 9% is destined for other uses and 4% for urban use. There therefore exists a rich biodiversity (one of the reasons that the zone was able to gain recognition from UNESCO), and this must be protected. A feasibility study has already begun, in close cooperation with other partners (the Municipality of Valdobbiadene, Coldiretti, Banca Prealpi, the UNESCO Association), for traffic that totally excludes the transport of goods on large trucks or in traditional rail wagons.

To deal with these subjects, the Consortium has for some time now been reinforcing its know-how, especially in the technical department.

The Consortium's consolidated activities in terms of environmental health continues, such as the partnership with the Symbola Foundation and updating the Viticultural Protocol. In particular, belonging to Symbola, an organisation that has grouped together for several years now, includes Italy's outstanding businesses and other bodies to promote their quality and support their sustainable behaviour, is very much in line with the Consortium's goals.

A further objective of the Consortium is to involve the new generations, to whom the future of this Denomination will be entrusted. That is what lies behind the idea of the Wine Tourism Lab, whose dual objective is to function as a link between the various professional figures in the region and at the same time create greater awareness among young people of the wider opportunities that this zone will offer in the years to come. Not just with wine but - alongside it - also with its landscape, beauty, health, food, leisure and nature; all elements that blend together in a single concept: wine tourism.

The Consortium is therefore taking on the role of promoter of activities aimed at also expressing the quality of our terroir through the cultural and educational development of the generations that will be called upon to run the Conegliano Valdobbiadene zone as a whole. We must have a wider and more far-sighted vision of the Denomination's potential, while being aware that Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG will always represent the flagship of these hills and that it is the wine that will give rise to new economic opportunities.

The Consortium is now laying the foundations for giving the stakeholders in the region increasing competence in dealing with visitors, especially as regards hospitality that highlights the winemaking heart of the region. To achieve this objective, it will be necessary to concentrate on training all the professional figures involved so that the level of what is offered stands out for its high profile and its ability to be constantly in touch with the times.

The Consorzio di Tutela del Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG is the private body, founded in 1962, that guarantees and controls adherence to the production regulations for D.O.C.G. Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. The sparkling wines produced on the hillsides between Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, in the Province of Treviso, obtained Denominazione di Origine Controllata status in 1969 and the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita in 2009. The production zone includes 15 municipal areas: Conegliano, San Vendemiano, Colle Umberto, Vittorio Veneto, Tarzo, Cison di Valmarino, San Pietro di Feletto, Refrontolo, Susegana, Pieve di Soligo, Farra di Soligo, Follina, Miane, Vidor and Valdobbiadene.

The Consortium, whose current President is Elvira Bortolomiol, has its headquarters in the village of Solighetto in Pieve di Soligo. It groups together 198 sparkling wine producers, 337 vinifying companies and 3,400 families of vine-growers, all of whom are involved in producing Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore. It operates principally in three areas: protection and promotion of the product, both in Italy and abroad; encouraging knowledge of the product through educational activities and the organization of events; and relations with the press. It also offers technical assistance to its members, from the vineyard to the winery.

Desert Chic: Scottsdale-Based Luxury Accessories Brand Launches Arizona-Inspired Variation of Best-Selling Clutch Handbag

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- For travelers and locals alike looking to always be reminded of the heart, soul and grandeur for which Arizona is known, Soul Carrier, a Scottsdale-based luxury accessories brand, announced today the launch of a chic new variation of the best-selling clutch handbag paying homage to The Grand Canyon State and the more than 30-million guests annually who seek rest, relaxation and rejuvenation within its buzzing resort community.

Available at some of Arizona's most prestigious resort boutiques including The Phoenician, JW Marriott Camelback Inn and the historic Arizona Biltmore Waldorf Astoria, Soul Carrier was founded by Jennifer Paige Boonlorn, a first generation Thai American, with the intent of helping women confidently transport the things that are important to them while catering to a luxury resort clientele.

While Jennifer chose to focus this new line on her home state, Soul Carrier handbags can be found nationally from the Beverly Hills Hotel to the new Waldorf Astoria in Washington, D.C.

As versatile as it is functional, this unique handbag works as a clutch, or when dropped into a larger carrier can organize smaller items. Complete with a debossed message on the inner leather pocket that reads, "I Found Myself in Arizona," this version of the clutch also features a few new enhancements including a velvet liner, a side leather tassel, and gold hardware to allow the bag to double as a crossbody with the addition of a strap. This style is offered in a variety of options including full grain leather and hair on natural cowhide, with additional specialty leather releases planned in the coming months.

"Arizona is such a metaphor for space and how you want to respond to life, from the grandiosity of our mountain ranges and the sunny skies that go on for miles to the rambling desert that extends out of Phoenix in every direction. The wild-west ethos provides a can-do-get-up-and-go-entrepreneurial spirit, which is what these variations are inspired by," said Jennifer. "Since the bags are sold at Arizona resorts, we're looking at this line as a way to create lasting connections with tourists and the many locals who long for nearby staycations, in hopes of contributing to their evangelism and return visits."

An Arizona State University graduate, Jennifer found solace in travel and connecting with others seeking peace after a tragic accident in which she lost both of her parents. Following her father's footsteps as a designer, she founded Soul Carrier in 2009.

No stranger to the fashion world, Jennifer lived and worked in New York City, obtaining valuable experience in fashion and visual merchandising with designers such as Oscar de la Renta and brands including American Eagle Outfitters. At Conde Nast, she focused on Women's Wear Daily Accessories, procuring items and coordinating photo shoots for women's accessory guides and feature articles.

"I remember subway rides where I daydreamed of cacti, intense sunshine, and the intangible vibe of the desert community. I never stopped longing for the nourishment that came via living in Arizona. The warm heat of the southwest was ingrained in my being, and that fever never fully broke during my time back east," said Jennifer. "Yet, through all the glamor of Fashion Week, all the sparkling lights that make up the Big Apple, all the golden opportunities, my soul longed for the dry-dusty desert, and I hope with this new line, the essence of Arizona can be taken and experienced just about everywhere."

Modern Exploration Society Calls for Proposals for $15,000 Pathfinder Prize

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Hidden Compass, a women-founded media company and modern exploration society, has just announced a call for proposals for their first annual Hidden Compass Pathfinder Prize. The $15,000 prize will fund a curious team of modern explorers and allow them to share their discoveries with the public.

Hidden Compass is accepting proposals through July 20 at which point a panel of experts will review the submissions and select three finalists. Hidden Compass co-founders Sivani Babu and Sabine K. Bergmann, who will also serve on the advisory panel, say they're looking for one thing: creativity.

"We're interested in exploration in all its forms," says Babu. "We want the types of proposals to be as diverse as the people who submit them. Because in the 21st century, everyone should be able to be an explorer. So whether these expeditions touch on history, science, art, ethics, or something else entirely, we welcome them - and look forward to finding something we didn't even know we were looking for."

Innovation is not only welcome in the proposals but is also driving the process of selecting the winner. After the panel of experts selects the finalists, expedition teams will pitch Allies - members of Hidden Compass's modern exploration society, The Alliance. Allies will then vote to decide the winner, who will be announced at Hidden Compass's virtual Ethos of Exploration Event in late 2022.

The Pathfinder Prize is a nod to the days of old, when exploration societies funded grand expeditions. But while expeditions of the past often held conquest as a goal, the modern journey funded by the Hidden Compass Pathfinder Prize is intended to set its sights on curiosity.

Since its founding in 2017, Hidden Compass has pioneered ways for audiences to participate in both journalism and exploration. Drawing inspiration from farm-to-table trends in the food industry, Hidden Compass: The Magazine invites audiences to see and support where the stories they read are coming from. In 2020, the publication became the first in the world to host patronage campaigns for every journalist it publishes - on top of the storytellers' article pay.

"Modern media companies really miss the mark when it comes to honoring readers, storytellers, and explorers," says Bergmann. "Right now, we live in an era of clickbait and cynicism where we focus on humanity's greatest problems, rather than our greatest opportunities. We're different. We're ending the era of junk food media by uniting audiences with the humans, causes, and possibilities behind award-winning stories and groundbreaking expeditions."

About Hidden Compass:

Hidden Compass is an independent journalism outlet and modern exploration society transforming the way audiences participate in journalism and exploration. Co-founders Sivani Babu and Sabine K. Bergmann, who have 25 years of experience in journalism and publishing, launched Hidden Compass in 2017 as an alternative to unhealthy, clickbait-laden content - what they call "junk food media." In 2020, the company pioneered a unique business model, leveraging patronage campaigns to increase journalists' pay and audience participation. The following year, readership grew by more than 40 percent, and Newsweek named Hidden Compass a finalist in its Future of Travel Awards. Learn more at https://hiddencompass.net .
