We’re all about getting our sweat on with a rewarding workout, and the latest indoor cycling meets outdoor yoga and pilates studio, Torque, opens July 15th in Williamsburg. Their mission is simple: Offer a positive and energized workout experience–AND unlike most of the city’s fitness studios, class prices include cycling shoe rentals, mats, towels, and water. Quite a deal if you ask us. To top it all off, 2% of their revenues are donated to charitable partners. Sign up here, and get ready to sweat.
Just when we thought we had seen (and eaten) it all, Dominique Ansel (the genius creator behind the infamous cronut) ups the ante of the dessert game with a brand new confectionary invention…the Frozen S’more! The mouthwatering treat starts with a vanilla-custard ice cream center, is coated in chocolate feuilletine (light, crunchy cookie flakes), pressed into a gooey marshmallow cream, and then hit with a blowtorch for a crème-brûlée-style shell and served on a classic willow wood stick for the full campfire effect. We just can’t get enough.
Ready to get your DIY on? Us too, which is why we’re eagerly awaiting the return of the 5th annual Renegade Craft Fair this weekend at Downtown LA’s State Historic Park. The free extravaganza will feature two days (July 20th and 21st) of over 250 vendors retailing handcrafted jewelry, clothing, one-of-a-kind art and unique house wares, as well as a variety of workshops led by experts. It’s all right up our Pinterest-minded alley.
The colorfully diverse city of San Francisco is getting the OPI treatment with fifteen new shades of nail polish to honor the city by the Bay. Whether you’re a downtown diva or a high-end hipster, there’s a shade for you – from the classic ruby red “First Date at the Golden Gate” to the shimmering gray “Haven’t the Foggiest.” Now we can show our love for the city in a whole new way.
