Travel

Today is a happy day. I am on a flight right now to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. I’ve never been to the Caribbean before and could not be more excited. I was invited along with 4 other bloggers to visit Puerto Plata and the North Coast of DR as part of an Adventure Press Trip. […]

I’m already on my way back to Boston from Los Angeles. I have been out here for an entire week and it flew by as usual! I’m shooting a series of videos for an upcoming project. As a blogger, I get sent different clothing items to try out. For my shoot though, I wanted to […]

I timed my latest trip to Los Angeles just in time to miss a giant storm that has walloped Boston once again. I landed Thursday night and have been nonstop ever since. Friday morning, I woke up 4:30am for a 6am call time with Listerine. I shot a bundh of video back in January with […]

It sounded like Barry’s Bootcamp and knowing Michelle Lovitt one of the original trainers, I knew it had to be great. I signed up using ClassPass the […]

Things I miss about college include living next door to my girlfriends, swapping clothes with my girlfriends, having the energy to go out hard 3-4 nights a week and having absolutely nothing to do during vacation breaks.  I am not complaining but when you work for yourself you do not have time off, especially paid […]

I always complain that Boston has no good specifically healthy restaurants. While I still think that is true, if you drive 20 minutes outside the city center they do exist. My buddy, Sara, and I made a lunch date to finally try Root, a vegan restaurant, located in Allston yesterday. The drive took about 15 […]

I don’t know why I haven’t written a post about my favorite (and obviously the best) fitness studios in Boston. I get emails from readers all the time asking where they should workout when they come visit. Boutique gyms make is easy for visitors to get in a workout without a gym membership. Up until […]

This year, I headed up to Portland, Maine for Thanksgiving with Roomie and his family. After teaching at 9am, taking Derek’s class at Barry’s at 10:15 and then teaching at noon, we drove up in the middle of the snow storm to Vacationland. It looked more like Christmas than Thanksgiving when we arrived! Despite the […]
