Ahhhh, parents. The two people whose love gave you life. But they're parents and it can be, well, embarrassing to talk to them about some things. Either that or you just don't have that kind of relationship where you feel comfortable talking to them about everything and anything. In every family, there are things we deem "appropriate" to talk about with the parentals...and there are things we keep to ourselves, even though we really, really want to tell them. Here are a few of those things you should definitely get up the nerve to say.
My first endeavor with juicing was in '07 through Organic Avenue. I began with their LOVE cleanse which included a variety of juices and smoothies that were downright delish – particularly the nut milks which were sweet, thick and surprisingly decadent. I learned rather quickly that exclusive vegetable juicing was not for me as it made me rather cranky, but the experience of Organic Ave instantly won me over. I became a regular at their Lower East Side location, swooning especially over their green juices, spicy lemonade and coconut water. I also fell in love with the wide variety of salads and raw meals on offer–the ideal grab n’ go lunch or snack that’s actually good for you.
We’ve all heard the age old saying "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" And now we find ourselves wondering, “If you have an incredible night out and no one sees it on social media, does it really count?” In a city like New York, with its infinite opportunities, sometimes it’s okay to brag about just how cool it is living here. So let’s take part in those cliché New York City Instagrams that we all know and love. And revive those simple yet key staples that made us move here in the first place.
It's important to look after yourself, no matter where you are in life. Winter is practically over, and we are looking forward to the warmer weather, but have to admit we are not prepared at all. We've only barely started on our spring wardrobe, so we have to step our game up these coming weeks. Make this coming weekend all about you - tune your bike, get your nails done and get that long awaited wax - shave your legs, and color your hair. Hibernation is over!
We know you've been longing for the day when it would just STOP snowing in NYC. It finally has and the warm spring weather is here...for now, at least.

Spring is right around the corner and we want to be as prepared as possible. Since we especially love the designers coming out of London this season, we picked a handful of shoes and one very chic bag to accessorize. These pieces are timeless and perfectly suited for spring. If you don't have the right shoes on, your whole outfit is ruined - the more color the better. It's a great excuse to wear a minimal, easy outfit and let the shoes and bag stand out for themselves.

After dominating Bravo’s Top Chef competition in 2012, where she became the second female in 10 seasons to win the title, Seoul-born Kristen Kish has proven herself beyond the reaches of reality TV. Since the show, she has worked as the chef de cuisine at Menton, a star on Boston’s restaurant map, and has quickly become a culinary icon both for her striking drive, beauty and celebrated gastronomic talents. "I have felt discrimination, there is discrimination and snap judgments in kitchens, just like in most industries," Kristen told us. "You get over it pretty quickly and move on, once you've proven yourself."
