The New Year is all about reflection, resolution, and a fresh start. Whether you vow to exercise two days a week, add one extra vegetable to your diet, or begin eating breakfast, even the smallest change can lead to a world of difference in how you look and, more importantly, feel.
The winter months mean frozen grounds, heavy snow, cozy fireplaces, and hot chocolate. Getting to the grocery store might seem like a hassle, but not when there is so much exciting seasonal winter produce to buy. Seasonal winter produce?! Yes, believe it or not, just because spring and summer are over doesn’t mean the fruit […]
Thanksgiving is right around the corner. You’ve already pre-ordered your perfect Fairway turkey. Your home will soon be fragrant with cooking smells and buzzing with family and friends. At my Thanksgiving table, grandpa carves the perfect Fairway bird with his whirring electric knife…oh so slowly, precisely, and beautifully. No matter your own turkey carving ritual, […]
Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday. Rooted in family tradition, Thanksgiving is one of those rare occasions where my family’s dress code is pajamas only, excuse to leave the couch is to throw around a football, and highlight of the day is of course Thanksgiving dinner.

On a not-particularly-pretty, busy stretch of Houston Street, there’s a place that’s way too cool for me. Probably for you, too. Miss Lily’s is many things. It’s a great Caribbean juice bar called Melvin’s Juice Box, that sells way-virtuous concoctions like the Rise Up (that’s wheat grass, pineapple, apple, bee pollen, strawberry, and banana).
I am at my air conditioned desk and I don’t wanna leave! Often, I’m antsy. Today, I’m content to stay here and bask in the cool, artificial air as long as possible. It’s just so crazy hot outside! Sweaty, sticky…relentlessly, incredibly hot. Which makes me ponder how best to feed myself in this heat. I’m […]
