This NYC Spa is a True Escape

There are a few things that make Organic Elements Spa in NYC a true oasis…

1) The moment you walk out of the elevators you’re hit by the most intoxicating aroma of spa-worthy scents.

2) It is not located in a basement or first floor. This is hugely important in New York City to avoid the sound of the subway or raucous from the street.

3) They use incredible oils and aromatherapy, which blend perfectly with the zen lighting and spa sounds.

A big thank you to our fabulous massage therapists who dealt with our tense bodies. High heels and heavy bags make for some crippled young ladies. We’ll certainly be back for more stress and pain relief!

QUESTION: Is this a couples massage?

ANSWER: Yes, and it’s far from our first.

Worry Free Summer with Total Mobile Protection

July 10, 2017

In partnership with Verizon

This past weekend Abigail and I went on a double date. I know we were just as shocked as you are. Why would anyone in their right mind want to take BOTH of us outTo their credit, these men had a wonderful day at the vineyards in Long Island planned out and it was just as fun as we could have hoped.

We began early at the Bedell Cellars for a quick flight and a glass of rosé on a picnic table by the vines. Then we headed over to Corey Creek for some delicious frosé. The perfect Summer drink. Raphael vineyards was our next stop and was a beautiful backdrop for some wine, cheese and a lot of vineyard pics. We always get super nervous taking pics with our phones while were out and about in the Summer. Luckily, if one of our phones eats it we at least can keep you all up to date with the other. However, when you are drinking wine and trying to look cute at the same time, you cant be too careful.

For those of you with Summer plans like ours, dates, vineyards, beaches, pools, trying dance moves you shouldnt on the busy city streetyou should invest in Verizons Total Mobile Protection Plan. It is a device insurance plan available exclusively from Verizon, and its open enrollment period is happening now until July 14, 2017.

In short, this plan gets rid of our crippling fear of being without a phone this Summer. With Total Mobile Protection, if a customer loses or breaks their phone, or if their phone is stolen, Verizon ships them a replacement phone the NEXT day! If you crack your screen you can get it fixed with a $49 deductible now instead of $79. Sameday repairs are available at nationwide carry in locations, but in 120 markets across the country, the technician can come right to the customer’s location. That is a serious protection plan.

Despite our job being within the tech industry, you would be shocked at how little we know about technology. Tech Coach, offered with Total Mobile Protection, provides users with unlimited access to experts who will handle virtually any question, including transferring content, explaining error messages, and connecting your device to other wireless devices.

Before I ramble anymoreback to the vineyards! We ended the day at Kontokosta Winery in Greenport. This place was my favorite. We skipped any sort of tasting, grabbed a delicious pinot and headed for the cliffs to take in the incredible views. Yes, I attempted to go down the cliffyes, it was a bad idea…. thank goodness for the Total Mobile Protection Plan.

The Maven Hotel – 1850 Wazee St, Denver, CO

Feast your eyes on the COOLEST hotel that just opened in downtown Denver – The Maven Hotel. We’ve had our fair share of hotel reviews, and we’re easily putting The Maven in the top 3, along with the Viceroy Zihuatanejo, and The Chanler Newport.

It all begins in the beautifully open and spacious lobby with an adorable airstream adjacent from the check-in desk that serves breakfast and coffee in the morning. Just past the incredibly well decorated lobby you’ll find the Poka Lola Social Club cocktail lounge. We enjoyed some divine drinks from a friendly mixologist.

Strolling to the elevators you’ll find an insanely cool art display. Hundreds of photo frames piled together in what resembles a wavelength. A nice break from the trendy gallery wall. After the elevator doors open on your floor, you’re greeted by totally tempting swings. Yes, we sat in them every chance we got.

We were lucky to get a room with a giant L couch, a dining table, a kitchenette, and possibly the best bathroom ever. I can’t get over the design of this hotel. Every little thing was perfectly thought out. We also will be inquiring about their pillows, because we NEED to buy them. Thank you for the lovely hospitality, Maven!

xx, Emily & Abigail
