After a good friend of mine went on and on about Bar classes, I took the plunge and singed up for a 6 week unlimited membership at the Bar Method to test it out for myself. Since signing up last week, I have got to 6 classes and am borderline obsessed. Classes are tough, but they leave me feeling amazing after. I even bought myself a pair of grippy socks since I’m going to so many classes.
I love love love Blue Apron and am so happy I discovered it over a year ago (when I first moved to Boston). I will be doing a post on the service soon, but to quickly sum it up, every week you get sent 6 meals (3 different ones for 2 people) with all the ingredients perfectly measured out. All you need to do is prepare the meal which takes less than an hour- no shopping or planning required! Plus, just look at how amazing that meal looks!
As part of my research plan, as well as my own desire to learn more about how foods affect the skin, I bought this highly recommended book written by the founder of S.W. Basics. I’ve only read the introduction but I’m already really into it (and would be much further along if I didn’t have to give a work presentation this week). Eat Pretty is next on my list. I think if I had to choose, besides green mint chocolate chip ice cream, my absolute favorite dessert is macarons. I first had them in Paris in 2010 (no, I don’t remember the year I first had macarons, but I remember the year I first went to Paris) at the infamous Laduree, and more recently, my sister got them for my bridal shower. I was so excited when I saw a macaron food truck on the side of the road during an afternoon stroll this weekend. Of course, I had to buy a dozen in 6 different flavors.
