Recipe Round-Up: June 2017

I love cooking almost as much as I love Sweetgreen, and I try to make a couple of new recipes each month based on what I’ve bookmarked on Pinterest. Below are some of the recipes I’ve made recently (linked to the originals–unless noted, none are […]

Bachelorette Week 5: Jack Stone Will Kill You In Your Sleep

Bachelorette Week 5: Jack Stone Will Kill You In Your Sleep

Welcome back, all! This week, we had two nights of The Bachelorette–four hours total! Me, upon learning this information: Also me, 8pm, night 2:   Needless to say, with four hours, this week was jam-packed. The men play handball in unitards (the OG male rompers) […]

SurfYogaBeer BootYcamp

SurfYogaBeer BootYcamp

Bandier  is definitely known as where the cool kids work out in NYC. Their upstairs studio (Studio B) has numerous classes throughout the week from some of NYC’s top trainers – Taryn Toomey, Amanda Kloots, and more. Unfortunately, these classes are at least $30 a […]

Bachelorette Week 4: Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Blimp?

Welcome back, fam! This week, Rachel and the boys went on spring break to Hilton Head, SC. Spring break activities included a booze cruise and…a spelling bee? Talk about a buzzkill. Whatever, I’m here for it. Here are the standings: Overall Standings: Happy People Just […]

Battle of the Bars: The Best Nutrition Bars That Won’t Undo Your Workout

Battle of the Bars: The Best Nutrition Bars That Won’t Undo Your Workout

I eat a borderline inappropriate amount of snack/energy/nutrition bars. They’re perfect to keep in my purse full of crap and even if they get crushed in there, they keep better than fruit (I’m still recovering from the Banana Explosion Incident of 2012), and they help me […]

Bachelorette Week 3: Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya

Bachelorette Week 3: Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya

Hi friends–sorry for the delay! I fell a little behind on Bachelorette-related matters this week last week–sadly, real-life responsibilities get in the way of my reality TV fandom. I had planned to combine this post with tonight’s post, but the stupid NBA finals conflicted with […]

Aqua Cycling at Aqua Studio NY

Aqua Cycling at Aqua Studio NY

Aqua cycling is definitely the oddest class I’ve seen in the NYC area (though my friend Nicole assures me this isn’t true–she signed up for swordfighting on Classpass and basically walked into a LARPing). I don’t love spinning and I’m indifferent towards water sports, but […]

Bachelorette Recap Week 2: These Bros Ain’t Loyal

Welcome back to another riveting season of “The Bachelorette!” New readers and long-time league members, thank you for joining again, it’s always a pleasure. It’s been a wild night so far, complete with cheating, romance, and my consumption of more tortilla chips than I’m proud of, […]

Classpass Month in Review: April/May

Classpass Month in Review: April/May

After freezing Classpass to do the intro month at Pure Barre, I returned to the platform (the Classpass kind, not the Pure Barre kind) in mid-April for some more variety. This month was significant in that it’s the first month where Classpass limited me to […]

Snap-Judging The Cast of “The Bachelorette”

It’s here! Less than a week before the premiere of The Bachelorette, ABC has finally released the 31 contestants pining for Instagram fame and Rachel’s heart. They really came down to the wire here! For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been lowkey anxious about the lack of […]
