Trader Joe’s Favs

When I first moved to NYC I saw people hauling multiple Trader Joe’s bags on the the subway.  I kept telling myself Trader Joe’s cannot be that great, and refused to go shopping there because I felt if I conformed I would be coming part of the TJ cult.  After one visit I was convinced that I found love in place called Trader Joe’s.  Grocery shopping in NYC is similar to trying to complete some strenuous obstacle course that requires strategic planning. Imagine trying to determine how many items you buy, juggle in two arms, and fit onto a possibly packed subway. (more…)

ClassPass Review

What is ClassPass?  It is a fitness startup based in New York City that gives customers the ability to sign up for a monthly membership.  This membership allows you to try different boutique studios that include cycling, yoga, barre, Pilates, and more.  ClassPass was actually founded by two females and the service they provide is available in 39 different cities.  ClassPass offers three types of monthly memberships which include Go (2 classes), Base (5 classes), and Core (10 classes).  I have heard so many millennials rave about ClassPass I decided to give in as part of my whole deep dive into More Self-Care in 2017.
