I believe that investing in quality, flattering workout clothes will greatly improve the outcomes of your  fitness routines. It’s like dressing up for an important meeting, event or party. Something about looking your best puts in you a mental state that allows you to accomplish the task at hand with optimal performance. I used to…

cooking

I hate cooking. Last night, my husband informed me that I must learn to cook. Terror filled my eyes. I’ve been evading this for years and luckily, I have always been fed great meals made for me by amazing cooks. I’ve never had to feed myself and if I did, it was for a short…

I’ve been a New Orleans resident for exactly two weeks. I’ve moved into a traditional shotgun style house, started a business and have been called “baby” countless times. Having only enjoyed this city as a tourist, I’m thrilled to be here permanently. The culture and the people here are amazing and there is just so…

As spring gives way to summer, refreshing cocktail recipes are in high demand. Behold, the New Orleans Pimm’s Cup, a magical summer cocktail. The famous Napoleon House slightly modified the original English classic and we’ve added a few fun twists of our own. It’s mild enough to have a few, but strong enough that you…

In 1999, I spent a summer in New Orleans teaching drama to 12 year olds. I loved it. I stayed with a family in the West Bank and had the time of my life. I loved my students and made great local friends that I still keep in touch with today. In 2005, I met…

michelada

I love a cold beer on a hot day. I also love a bloody mary on a cold day (especially to nurse a hangover). An amazing Mexican cocktail called the Michelada is the fusion of those two wonderful libations. Imagine a crisp Mexican beer with high citrusy notes of fresh lime, grounded by savory foundations…

I haven’t had decent Mexican food since I left New York (I mean California, oops I mean Mexico). I miss homemade tortilla chips and bean dip, guacamole, enchiladas, tacos, mezcal margarita’s and cerveza’s. At a recent Mexican themed birthday bash, I was hit smack in the face by the familiar smell of good Mexican food….

featured punch

If you have been to a PartyGirlFit fitness class, you know we like to add kickboxing into the HIIT based foundation. Punches, elbows, kicks and knees are all fair game. But punching like a girl is not ok. If you know that your punches are a bit on the sissy side, see below for my…

Looking cute at the gym is fun and makes you feel great during your workout. On the other hand, wearing your boyfriend’s baggy t-shirt is not hot, no matter how hardcore you are. And looking like a glamour queen with a full face of makeup, styled hair, dangly jewelry and perfectly manicured nails is completely…

Fact: your environment can dictate what and how much you eat. According to droves of weight loss research and the book Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life, you are more likely to eat certain foods based on the ease of their preparation and consumption and the physical design of the space. No brainer right?…

How many of you are hung-over reading this right now? Is it perhaps because you were out late drinking? Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about hangovers and these days, my imminent hangover is completely planned beforehand. With my crazy schedule, I can no longer afford to have an unexpected hangover and end up…

I tend to like greasy food, but my body doesn’t like me afterwards.  I’m a firm believer that you should always eat the foods that you love and for me that’s pizza.  I won’t substitute anything for authentic NYC style pizza.  I don’t care if your gluten free version is healthier, I want the real…

I have always wanted to look like Kate Hudson. She’s beautiful, has a great butt and amazing figure. I love it. She’s also big into fitness and healthy living. So naturally, I chose her as a role model and set a goal to be just like Kate. It started off great. I worked out every…

This week I have a photo shoot.  And although I feel great right now, I want to look absolutely perfect.  I think it’s because I’m so nervous!  To look your absolute best as you are right now, the most dramatic thing you can do is to shed water weight.

Most people stop asking me for movie recommendations after they hear I love the movie, Dodgeball, A True Underdog Story.  Truth be told, I find it hysterical and really enjoy it.  But beyond it’s comedic appeal, there is a really good message behind the silliness of it all. The message is: Average is Beautiful.  Average…

Mojito1

Alas, summer is coming to end, but we still have some hot days ahead.  Mojitos are one of my favorite adult beverages, transporting me back to summer and making me feel like I’m having a Havana night.  Unfortunately, they are full of sugar and terrible for your waistline, but the sugar is what makes them…

I love carbs.  I always have.  I’m in a serious relationship with them.  But since I hit my 30s, I’ve found it harder and harder to work-off the bagels and pasta.  I did some research on when I should really be indulging in carbs and I want to impart what I found.  You can have…
