Sammy No Spendy

Okay, not bankruptcy. But the time has come where I finally took a look at my collective debt and started to feel really overwhelmed by the number. Student loans are evil. Credit card debit is evil. And they’ve been hanging over my head like a gloomy gray cloud since 2011. More and more, I’m seeing posts… Continue reading Sammy No Spendy

Meals on Wheels: Hungryroot

I would just like to preface this by saying I love cooking. I take great pride in my ability to actually make myself food that is both delicious and healthy. HOWEVER. I have also been ridiculously busy the last few months — two jobs and 80 hours will do that to you — and have epically… Continue reading Meals on Wheels: Hungryroot

Sweat It Out: ClassPass

I’m a girl who loves a good deal. Especially when it comes to boutique fitness, which can be notoriously expensive in NYC. I recently had a chance to try ClassPass, and it definitely falls under the ‘good deal’ category if you’re someone who works out more than once a week. For $125 a month, you… Continue reading Sweat It Out: ClassPass

Roosevelt Island has always been at the top of my New York City bucket list, yet somehow it’s taken me three years to actually visit. Don’t ask why it’s taken so long, because I don’t have a good answer other than I’m lazy and rarely leave Manhattan. But this past Friday was particularly overcast and… Continue reading Roosevelt Island

Hamilton Heights and Hidden Gems

It’s been three weeks since I moved from one height (Washington Heights) to another (Hamilton Heights), and we’ve been so busy unpacking, painting, decorating, and trying to interpret texts from our super that there’s been absolutely no time to go exploring. I absolutely loved the area I left behind, and while I was dubious about… Continue reading Hamilton Heights and Hidden Gems

NYC on a Budget, Part II: Get a Life

New York is notoriously expensive, and getting a job fresh out of college isn’t always easy. Having been through all this, and with more and more friends wanting to move here and/or work in publishing, I thought I’d do a little series to help them out. It can be a challenge living here, there’s no… Continue reading NYC on a Budget, Part II: Get a Life
