Weekly Round-Up 4/7

Ahoy mates and happy Friday to you. I can’t help but think of a sailor with the sound of my building creaking while it “sways” with the 50mph+ winds outside on this beautiful day! Anyway – I know I’ve been slacking on the posts/round-ups, but that is what typically happen when the realities of life catch up to you so I sincerely apologize. I know this is the highlight of your week and I will try to be more consistent . Without further delay, here is this week’s round-up: Apparently Celiac Supplies thinks they are selling the gluten-free equivalent of Faberge Eggs and is charging consumers $5 to simply browse it’s racks! But...

Weekly Round-Up 3/3

Just when you thought we were in the clear, cruising along into Spring, leaving the days of Winter in the rear view mirror, another snowy/wintry mix is hurled our way just in time for the weekend. When I was younger I used to look forward to snow because that usually meant no school. However now that I am a young professional, all snow means is making my commute a pain in the ass and torture to my leather/suede shoes. But don’t fret because… it’s Friday & the forecast calls for 50 and sunny tomorrow. …And because it’s weekly round-up time: It looks like the I’m-not-so-sure-this-is-actually-going-to-happen soda ban has finally...

Weekly Round Up 2/24

Keeping with with a day job, the gym, my laundry, errands, a social life and a blog leads one to have a very busy life. Which is why I wasn’t shocked today when my doctor told me my cortisol (aka stress hormone) levels were through the roof – the highest he’s every seen. The good news? I now have an excuse to book unlimited yoga classes, manicures, massages etc etc – because  it will help keep my stress levels down…until I get my bills that is. Or I can just pop the cork on this bottle of vino sitting on my desk while writing this weekly round up.  On that note…your weekly round-up for 2/24: *   My all-time fave Doc, Mr. Lipman,...

Weekly Round-Up 1/6

2013. I bet back in the 80′s you thought by the time you hit this year there would be flying cars and phones implanted into our hands (or maybe not). We have made some serious strides since the days of Full House – Honey Boo Boo anyone? All jokes aside, I am happy to be here and welcome yet another wonderful year into my life, filled with health, happiness, family/friends, winning the lottery and traveling the world. And while I look forward to the aforementioned, I bet you have been looking forward to this weekly round-all week. Well, the wait’s over: Speaking of traveling the world, the NYTimes brings us a list of 46 places to go in 2013. I may not...

Weekly Round-Up 12/16

It’s here – the most anticipated day of the year, 12/21/12. The unofficial end of the world – or so says the Mayans. After watching tons of Discovery and History channel this week, I now know that the calendar is in fact depicted beyond this date by the Mayans, and it more or less symbolizes a shift in the peace & harmony of the world… …or something like that.  Regardless, the end of the world felt forthcoming this morning as 60mph winds gave me umbrella whiplash on my walk to work. Lovely way to start the day. And a lovely way to end it? A weekly round up:   In effort to capitalize on today’s biggest trend, three new juice bars...
