Spied it, Tried it: Ice Pops by La Newyorkina

After reading the New York Times article about New York’s New Frozen Treats, I decided I had to have La Newyorkina‘s famed Mexican ice pops – or paletas – and planned a trip to the Hester Street Fair. I was hoping for the avocado flavor, but would have been just as thrilled to try fresh(…)

Animal Magnetism: Love for Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

I first noticed Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Hand Cream as PA Hillary was pulling it out of one her fabulous handbags. She gave it a rave review and not long after my dermatologist said simply, “that’s the best stuff!” Now that I’ve tried it, I can say without a doubt that it is the best. I(…)

Feast Your Eyes On…Matthew Lewis

Matthew Lewis, who plays Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movies, is all grown up and looking good. It’s hard to believe this dude is the same awkward ten-year-old we first met in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I’m looking forward to seeing him in the final movie of the series (Harry Potter and(…)

Cold Spring: Summer City Escape

I love New York and taking advantage of all the super fun (and delicious) things it has to offer. Still, like many of the Power Animals I’m always looking for ways to get out of the City and enjoy the outdoors, especially in the warmer months. A friend recently took me for a day of(…)

Love for Victoria’s Secret Swimwear

I’m a little embarrassed to say that until this summer almost every bathing suit I owned was a basic piece from an Old Navy sale rack. These separates – though inexpensive and stylish enough – leave a lot to be desired in terms of fit and quality. Inspired by my new appreciation for properly fitting(…)

Calgel Pedicures: Beach Tested and Power Animals Approved

As you know, Power Animals love gel manicures, especially Calgel. Calgel is the best for your nails, lasts the longest, and comes in tons of awesome colors. I’ve had a bunch of Calgel manicures and am always impressed with their durability and resilient shine. This summer, I decided to try a Calgel a pedicure for(…)

Miller Chill: A PA Summer Favorite

I’ll admit that I was skeptical when PA Nicole first introduced me to Miller  Chill two summers ago. Usually, I don’t drink light beer and the thought of light beer with artificial lime flavoring sounded pretty whack. Then, I tried it was pleasantly surprised by it’s refreshing (albeit fake) lime flavor and drinkability. It’s super(…)

Gussy Up Your Soda with Fruit Shrubs

Last month, PA Jessie gave us 3 Ways to Put the Party in the Water including adding fruitful syrups. This past weekend the Wine Library‘s amazingly enjoyable gourmet food section gave me a new way to gussy up my SodaStream sparkling water: fruit shrubs! The shrubs stocked at the Wine Library are made by Tait(…)

One More Reason to Love Beyoncé

Beyoncé recently joined forces with the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation and Michelle Obama to fight childhood obesity. Tuesday, May 3, middle school students across the country participated in the Let’s Move! Flash Workout – a dance/exercise performed to Beyoncé’s song “Move Your Body.” In Harlem, she surprised girls at PS 161 by joining their workout and(…)
