One Month of Fithouse

Dark, neon-lit rooms, lots of sweaty, toned midriffs showing, EDM blasting out of the speakers.... no, this is not a Brooklyn warehouse party.  This is FitHouse, a new-ish fitness studio in NYC that offers a multitude of classes including HIIT, yoga, barre, dance, and sculpt.  Last month I partnered with Liquor Lab and FitHouse for weekly workout sessions at their new Union Square location.  FitHouse originally opened last spring in Tribeca, and has another location in Union Square.

What makes FitHouse different than other group fitness companies in Manhattan?

Shopbop's Insane Sale Ends Tomorrow- Here are My Picks!

Who else is ready for sundresses and sandals?  Unfortunately, I’m still having to carry a jacket with me each day because the New York weather is staying cool.  It's days like this I miss living in Houston, Texas where there wasn't any need at all to own a coat.  However, I know sunshine is right around the corner, and a look at Shopbop’s spring sale this AM has me extra excited for warm days ahead.  The sale is pretty unbelievable in terms of savings- 20% off all purchases with the code “EVENT19” at checkout, and 25% off all purchases over $500.  Unfortunately, the savings end tomorrow so it’s time to get shopping…!  I pulled together a few of my favorite pieces from the sale below:

(Please note, all pricing below takes in to account the 20% discount code of "EVENT19" at checkout.)

1.) Light Blue Wrap Dress, $118.40

2.) Orange Watercolor Floral Dress, $388

3.) Furla Black Mini Crossbody Bag, $238.40

4.) Blue Vince Ribbed Pullover Sweater, $276

5.) Karen Walker Tortoise Sunnies, $200

6.) FEMINIST Soludos, $68

7.) Overalls, $48

This is cracking me up.  So glad these classics are part of the sale.

These are adorable for upcoming summer parties (or Memorial Day!)

Needing, Wanting, Loving: Industrial Pendant Lights

Selecting light fixtures is one of my all-time favorite things to do for any design project, and lately I’ve been very drawn to factory-style pendants.   Although visualizing industrial lights hanging above crowded factory workers in the early 1900s isn’t ideal, these lights did ultimately stand the test of time- both in style and function.  I love to see them in unexpected areas, like kid's rooms:

And in entryways:

Of course, we have most often seen them hanging in kitchens over islands, which I've always loved:

What we don't often see is factory-style lighting in large living rooms, like Steven Gambrel did here in this funky barn he designed:

Love the look, too?

Here are a few of my favorite sources for great factory-inspired lighting:
