For NYC Rooftop Spots, I <3 Gallow Green: Haute Spots

I may have somewhat disclosed my love for the amazing rooftop garden called Gallow Green…through Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram so far, but have yet to sing it’s praises in this forum. I really, really ❤ Gallow Green.


Upon walking into the rooftop space from the dark elevator ride, you really don’t expect to see what you do. A lovely garden retreat, with an early 1900s twist. “This is what I want my garden to look like one day”.

Add to this lovely scene, a mixology bar with very cool cocktails, and a tiny menu of goodies to keep you fed (like oysters, delicious cheese and more).


If you are looking for an awesome summer hangout without all the clang of a resident dj, but rather a place where you can hear friends and feel happy, check out this spot on your next outing. But shhh…try to keep this well kept secret super classy!


New York, new you, new workouts: Haute Happenings

If you are like me and love a good, yet fun, yet hard workout, and are looking for classes which keep you motivated, I have a few great tips from my recent experiences, and some to look forward to!

  1. – This is the ultimate class pass (called your Passport), as it allows you to take up to 10 classes in a month at a variety of gyms/dance studios/yoga and pilates studios and more.  It’s only $49, and features great names like Pure Barre and Jivamukti Yoga (In NYC).  I attended classes at these studios, and other studios and spots, and still have a few days left on my passport to try a few more.  You can also use Classtivity in cities other than NYC, so be sure to check it out!
  2. – I love, love, love the classses I have taken at M Dance Fitness so far.  They are super high energy, have great music, and keep me motivated at 8pm when I usually can make them.  I went to my first class using Classtivity, which got me hooked! I love the Dance Cardio Combo class with Victoria Mayo, it kicks my butt!
  3. Cross-fit Hells Kitchen – I have been wanting to try this for a while now, and may be compelled to as I saw the living social deal today for 1 month of unlimited cross Fit. 
  4. Physique 57 – I loved my first Physique experience, though it was a bit pricey at $40 bucks a pop.  It was fast paced, involved weights, and kept me going – a great combo.

Whatever your workout style, here’s to getting out there and moving more!
