If you haven't tried a couture floss before... let us try it for you first! (Really, it tastes delicious and makes you want to floss your teeth more)
As a dentist-in-training, I see people make genuine efforts to take care of their oral health... except when it comes to flossing. My patients may brush and use mouth rinses religiously, but it's always difficult to ask them to floss. Cue: COCOFLOSS, ready to change that dynamic.

If you wanted to try the new Naked palette, read our newest post before splurging on it!
By Jess. At Aqua Foam, Jess, Martha, and Ling were super excited to hear about the Naked Smoky Palette by Urban Decay. We're huge fans of the Original Naked Palette (all of us have it), and loved that Urban Decay changed up the scenery with this palette. The Naked series seemed to be slowing down with the introduction of the Naked 3, and I was not so impressed with the Naked 3 Palette, just because the pink undertones of the palette ...

Pittsburgh used to be the Steel City but now it's a hot spot for art and restaurants. Have a look at a recent artisan fair that we covered!
Once obscure and difficult to obtain, handcrafted artisan pieces are now in hot demand more than ever.  The rise of vendor fairs for small business shop owners have become great opportunities for residents to shop directly from the artists, effectively cutting out a distributor. One such example is the recent Southside Exposed "I Made it! Market" vendor fair in Pittsburgh, P.A.

#streetartNYC, if you are in New York City on a sunny day, these can be overlooked easily. See our post for more info!
Art in the streets have been receiving more exposure and interest as people share numerous photos on social media platforms, such as Instagram. As the interest grows, so is the appeal of traveling to major cities with street art hubs for street art sightseeing. One such major city is New York City, and in the #StreetArtNYC series, I'll be covering the major street art hubs in the city, starting with the Lower East Side.

New post on recent travels to Dunedin! 
This past weekend has been a relaxing and patriotic one. I left for Tampa for a short weekend getaway, and had the fortune of dining at a delicious seafood restaurant called Bon Appetit on the Dunedin waterfront. Friendly service and live piano music added to the ambience. Shoutouts to their Maine Lobster Linguine, which was a rich and creamy concoction of lobster with noodles.

Happy Memorial Day weekend from a quaint little winery in Pittsburgh, PA! They have delicious fruit wines and whites.

See how we made our own pasta sauce in simple steps - with only 5 ingredients! 
Sleeping in.  A crackling fire.  A first kiss.  Like all the best things in life, amazing pasta sauce is simple.  If you’re new to cooking, you might think the key to a great sauce involves dozens of ingredients, fine chopping skills, and several hours of tending to a simmering pot of tomatoes and spices.  Now, while there are plenty of Italian mothers who make pasta sauce this way – and with great results, I might add – this is not t...

More from our #StreetArtNYC  series - Where to find #streetart  in #Chelsea  . Do you have any suggestions for where to find good street art?
Spanning between 19th Street and 23rd Street from 8th Avenue to 10th Avenue, you will come across a variety of people spending their time in Chelsea. It's the location of choice for several fashion houses, including Diane von Furstenberg and Armani Exchange. It's the home for Google NYC Headquarters and YouTube Space. It's also the place to be for foodies and art enthusiasts, with several award-winning restaurants, art galleries and m...

Have you wanted to try Rent the Runway? See my review here.
During college, I was recruited to work for Rent the Runway by Jennifer Hyman in 2009 when they were a small company looking to expand their customer base through college community referrals. If you haven't heard of them before, it's a couture version of Netflix.

If you've watched food documentaries on CNN... here is my strategy to getting a reservation at Noma!
I frequently get questions on how John and I were able to score a Friday night reservation for two at René Redzepi's restaurant, Noma, in Copenhagen. Until recently, it was crowned #1 restaurant in the world for four years by Restaurant magazine.

The art of story telling. Chipotle releases a short film and ad for their new scarecrow app game which educates the public about food issues. So well done (and feels slightly Tim Burton-esque). 
Way to pull on our heartstrings, Chipotle. We know we should all be making better food choices, but now we're feeling an overwhelming amount of sadness and guilt after watching this new short film.

They call that Franken food you should try to only eat grass fed beef and free range chicken raised on organic feed fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season from your farmers market or local natural food store . I prefer to plant my own garden it provides more produce then you would expect to eat and cost only a fraction of what you actually spend at the store.
