NYC: 4 Things For This Week

Oh NYC, your bipolar weather has taught me to be prepared for the unexpected. Case in point, snow on the first day of spring. Thankfully, it was only a few flurries so my 'tude is still in good standing + I spent a good portion of this month pampering myself (which helps).

Here are a few new-to-me places to learn and relax this month:

1. Deify Beauty | Laser & Beauty Lounge

I've been treating myself to a little bit of laser hair removal - the perks of being a well-bred hispanic girl. Not sure if this is too taboo to talk about, but in the past I've bleached my hair and am basically over that bathroom mess. I found a great deal onGroupon (search Deify for all their deals!!) and never looked back.

1. Museum of Natural History x Etsy

Definitely not a new place of interest as I've been coming to this museum since my Pre-K days. BUT, what is new is this awesome collaboration between Etsy and the AMNH. Together, they teamed up to create products inspired by the natural world and the museum's magnificent collections. The 22 different Etsy designers have created scarves, tote bags all the way to games and a birdhouse. You can find these unique items in the museum's gift shop and online.

1. Gotham Writers Workshop

Another amazing place to get your learning on and network with a group of like-minded peers. As a blogger I feel it's essential to keep practicing my written word and receive criticism on how to improve. IF you can't afford the classes (i.e. me after rent) try attending their free classes. They tend to have two free classes a month and on a variety of classes - which I love to attend (free is the magic word).

1. Wink Brow Bar

If you ever wanted to see and truly understand what "brows on fleek" actually mean, you go to Wink Brow Bar. Found this place through Gilt City (love me some discounts) and tried their brow shaper service - loved it. After that I decided to throw caution to the wind and also did their brow tint - loved even more. When it comes to brows, this place is the holy grail and a must try.
