Mother’s Day Ideas

Are you looking for Mother’s Day ideas? Well since I am a Mom, I have a few Mother’s Day ideas that I am sure your Mother or the Mother of your children will love. The first thing is do you want to buy her a gift, take her somewhere or both?

Here are a few Mother’s Day ideas on what you can take her to do:

  • Mother’s Day Brunch: this is one of my favorite ideas. I love brunch and I love being taken to brunch. We will probably hit up my favorite brunch spot, Brassiere 8 1/2. If you are in NYC it is a great spot for brunch on holidays.
  • Picnic: Now that the weather is picking up, a picnic is a fantastic Mother’s Day idea. Being in NYC, I would obviously suggest Central Park as a location.
  • Get out and exercise: We like to stay active as a family. Try going out for a leisurely walk or if you are into a vigorous walk. It is fun to get do some physical activity together.
  • Take her out for a nice dinner. All ladies want to be taken out to a fancy restaurant for dinner , at least I know I do!

Now let’s talk gifts. There are some of the obvious choice and a few of the things I would like to have. I know that is selfish of me but I thought I would throw it out there into the universe and maybe I will receive one of these 😉

Your obvious choices, also always work. I mean who does not love to receive flowers, chocolate and/or perfume. You could always send her to the spa for a massage or a manicure and pedicure. What ever you decide, I am sure that she will love it!


EXTREME FITNESS. SIMPLE EATING. SERIOUS RESULTS.

Weekly Instagram Wrap Up

Hey guys! I hope you are having a great week and keeping warm. We were prepared for a big storm but got a lot less than we anticipated here in NYC. At least Jon had the day off and we got to spend the day together yesterday. I have to admit, I am IG obsessed and love snapping pictures of pretty much everything (especially my food). Here is a look at some of the pictures that I posted last week on my NYC Fit Food Fashion Instagram:

Somebody Come and Play: Sesame Street Exhibit at the NYPL for Performing Arts

We went down to the NYPL for the Performing Arts this week to check out “Somebody Come and Play” 45 years of Sesame Street. Emma loves Sesame Street, so we decided to take her to check it out. Since she is only 10 months old, I can only guess but I think she loved it. It is running until January 31st, 2015. If you are in New York check it out!

This definitely something to bring the kids to. There was lots of props and Sesame Street characters that you could take your photos with. They even had a photo booth. They were supposed to email us the photo booth pictured but we never got them! Head over to the Sesame Street Exhibit before it ends on January 31st!

 

Weekly wrap up from Instagram

I had written a post a while back on blogging and privacy on Social Media. Jon and I had decided to keep the baby off my blog IG and only on my private one. Since then I have created a new IG for the blog. If you are following me, that is awesome! If you are not or do not have IG, here is a look at some of the pics that we posted over on IG this week:

Wrap Up of the Royal Visit to NYC #Royals

Hey guys! This week New York City had the pleasure of having the William and Kate visit. There was no shortage of news stories out there on the visit. I have to say a lot of the “news” stories were not worthy of a story. I mean who really cared that the Royals met Beyoncé or that Lebron James put his sweaty arm on Kate! God forbid he broke the Royal protocol. I think the more aggravating thing as a woman was how they always pit one woman against another. I saw more than one report of who was dressed better. The NY Post had a page devoted to the looks of Kate against Michelle Obama, keep in mind they were never even in the same place on this US visit. Thank you for reading my rant on the news this week. Here is some pictures of the Royal couple in NYC:

New York Wine Festivals to Present 2nd Annual NYC Autumn Wine Festival at the Broad Street Ballroom in Downtown Manhattan, Saturday, November 22, 2014

NY Wine Festival

NEW YORK, September 18, 2014 –  New York Wine Festivals will host its 2nd Annual NYC Autumn Wine Festival: A Celebration of Wine Downtown at the Broad Street Ballroom in lower Manhattan on Saturday, November 22, 2014. The autumn tasting will feature 200+ wines curated by Vintry Fine Wines, light fare including hors d’oeurves, cheese and cracker selections, and pasta, plus artisan food sampling tables. Guests will also enjoy live contemporary jazz performances during each session from internationally acclaimed guitarist Matt Marshak and his band.

 

Tasting tables located throughout the venue will offer a wide array of high-quality wines from around the globe including lush reds, crisp whites, intriguing grape blends, and more. Festival attendees can choose from two tasting sessions, Afternoon: 3-6pm or Evening: 8-11pm, and sip wines from a complimentary tasting glass that is theirs to take home after the event.

 

This year, a VIP level ticket (limited to 40 people per session) has been added to the event that includes the main tasting plus admission to a private VIP wine tasting area featuring 20+ high-end wines and a premium selection of passed hors d’oeuvres. Varietals and regions will include Bordeaux (France), Rioja (Spain), Super Tuscans (Italy), and Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel (California).

 

Guests may also add an exclusive wine class to their festival experience to enhance their wine knowledge. Classes feature additional selections and are led by a wine expert who will provide tasting and pairing notes as well as intriguing facts about the varietals. Three class times are featured during each session.

 

“We’re excited to return to downtown Manhattan for our autumn wine event,” notes S.W. Kimball, Founder, New York Wine Festivals.  “The extensive wine selection curated by Vintry Fine Wines, our all-new VIP upgrade, entertaining live jazz, and the stunning setting of the historic Broad Street Ballroom will provide our guests with a memorable wine and entertainment experience,” he adds.

 

Located in the heart of Wall Street, the Broad Street Ballroom was built in the late 1920s as the Headquarters of the Lee-Higginson Bank. Today, the spacious site is recognized today as “the most impressible building on Broad Street” and is one of the premier event spaces in New York City.

 

Musical guest, guitarist Matt Marshak has built a sound based on inspiration, improvisation and spontaneity, one that infuses new energy into the golden era of contemporary jazz and R&B. He recently completed a world tour, invited to play at prestigious events like the Dubai International Jazz Festival and the Mallorca Jazz Festival in Spain. Stateside, Matt is a familiar figure on the US jazz circuit, performing at Jazz on the Vine in Wisconsin (opening for Fourplay), the Rehoboth Jazz Festival in Delaware, and the River Raisin Jazz in Detroit and regularly performs at such clubs as Yoshi’s in San Francisco, Scullers in Boston, and many other respected venues nationwide.

 

Sponsors to date include Brotherhood Winery – America’s Oldest Winery, Dr. Frank Vinifera Wine Cellars, and OneHope Wine; more to be announced shortly.

 

Standard tickets for the NYC Autumn Wine Festival are on sale now, priced at $99. (Final week: $109) VIP tickets including admission to the VIP tasting area are $199 (Final week: $219).  An additional $25 fee applies for those adding a wine class to their festival experience.
