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 […]

Box + Flow

Box + Flow

In a world with only ten ClassPass classes per month, it’s hard to convince myself to try a new type of workout, even if it’s something I might like. After all, there are over 1,000 studios on ClassPass in NYC, many of which I know I like. But […]

As you know from reading my blog, I froze my Classpass account for the past month to do the new client special at Pure Barre NYC. I’m well-seasoned in barre and Pure Barre specifically, but I hadn’t had a change to try their cardio offering, Pure […]

Thoughts On: Celeb Athleisure Lines

Thoughts On: Celeb Athleisure Lines

Celebs love creating branded products for buyers because we will eat up anything with a celebrity name on it. Think about it–you definitely own Britney or J.Lo perfume from back in the day, and Jessica Alba has an entire line of skin products that don’t […]

Boy Band Brackets: Ranking the Best Boy Band Ballad of the 90’s/2000’s

Uninspired by NCAA basketball and very inspired by hair gel and harmonies, my good friend Dana and I teamed up to rank the best boy band ballad from the late 90’s / early 2000’s. We tried our best to represent a variety of artists and ultimately decided […]

SLT

SLT

Every time I pass SLT, I always read it in my head as slutttt. As a result, I naturally start to doubt myself — “I’m not slutty! Wait, am I? Are they judging me?” Luckily, SLT actually stands for Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone, which you’ll do plenty […]
