5 HEALTHIER SUPER BOWL APPS 2016

superbowl

I know I am a little late posting these Super Bowl Apps so please accept my apologies (been a little crazy these past two weeks). I’m not really a fan of the game. Truthfully, I watch football for the half-time shows, commercials, and really the food! If you are looking for a few apps on the “lighter” side, here are… Read More

PawsUp_IMG_2563

Last weekend I went on adventure to Montana. I was invited to attend the first annual Food and Wine Festival (Winterfest) at The Resort at Paws Up. If you haven’t heard about Paws Up, this may just be the place you want to spend some time in the winter but ESPECIALLY in the summer. I am dying to go back… Read More

eashall

Still a fan of the show. I have been hearing some mixed reviews but I am continuing with my review….. EPISODE 2 – NAMING RIGHTS Episode 2 opens up just like episode 1 in UNDIES. This time Bobby is in his tight boxer briefs, trying on a custom fitted suit with his stylist. It must be nice to wear beautiful new… Read More

BILLIONS – EPISODE 1 – LET’S DISCUSS!!!

IMG_6152

Great Pilot!!! I was super excited about Billions only because I LOVE Wall Street movies. Funny thing is I could never have an intellectual conversation with you about equities, derivatives, mutual funds, bonds, IPO’s, which stock to invest in, etc. Zero Clue. But to listen to a person who can talk the street is very exciting and I have to… Read More

tribecaelivingroom

Sometimes in life things don’t always go as planned. Originally I was going to feature two New York City Hotels and a Spa in Connecticut as Part Two of my Valentine’s Day Getaways but after such an incredible visit at The Greenwich Hotel in NYC, I felt it deserved its own spotlight. I will be writing about the other two after… Read More

VALENTINE’S DAY GETAWAYS – PART ONE

blantyretwilight

Although Valentine’s Day is my least favorite holiday of the year, I would take any excuse to get away. I will say, I think we focus so much of our attention on our kids, sometimes we forget about our marriage and what we all need is a few days away from the kids to decompress,  reconnect and spend some good… Read More

I found this recipe from the Banza pasta I posted yesterday in the junk free guide. It is delicious!!! It’s the perfect side with grilled chicken, turkey burger or salmon. You can even just have it as a salad for lunch. I love that the pasta is made from chickpeas! By the way – Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo on… Read More

Happy 2016! Hope everyone ended 2015 with a bang. So here we are – the first Monday of the new year. Who began a diet today? I hate dieting. I hate not being able to eat what I want, when I want. I’m not one of those girls who can eat whatever they want and never gain a pound. I’m… Read More

The Affair Season 2, Episode 12 – THE FINALE. Let’s Discuss!!!

finale

*Spoiler Alert – if you have not watched the Season Finale yet, save this for later.  I never name the episodes but this one I am going to call “The House of the Rising Sun.” Wow, so my theory was dead wrong. But who would have guessed that the two leading women were both the cause of Scotty’s death. I… Read More

THE PARTY GUIDE

uniqie

There are so so many vendors in the party business, it’s so hard to decide WHO to go with. When planning a big birthday, mitzvah, wedding or any soiree, most of us ask our friends and family who they would recommend. When I created the Hot List, this category was tough because, truth be told, there are SO MANY talented… Read More

The Affair Season 2, Episode 11 – Let’s Discuss!!!

screen

A huge thank you to Greg for doing an amazing job recapping last week’s episode. It was definitely fun to read his take on episode 10. The only thing I will point out (although Greg did mention it) was how insane Joanie looks like Cole. They must have screened 20,000 babies until they found her. I think its odd that… Read More

The BodyHoliday

It’s part of a Travel Advisors job to go out and explore cities, countries, beaches, deserts, retreats, spas, etc. so they can come back and educate you with an experienced mind of the ins and outs of any place you are thinking of venturing to. Part of my agreement with Kahan Travel was that I wanted to explore and uncover… Read More
