Splurge vs. Frugal: The Cleaning Gadgets You Need

At the risk of sounding like a “princess,” which is what my boyfriend calls me (and not in a nice way…) when I talk about this topic, it’s almost impossible to find someone who not only cleans well, but who you can trust in your apartment when you’re not home. I found such a gem of a person over a year ago, but he went to visit family in India for over two months, leaving me scrambling with a messy apartment. The only reliable person I could find charged such an absurd amount that I decided it was high time I try out all the cleaning products and gadgets I’ve been hearing so much about…

Snob Guide to Italian Wines: Tuscany

The best part about getting to know wines from a particular country (other than the actual drinking of them, of course) is the underlying acquaintance with the culture. Italian wines, like Italian people, are true free spirits. This is by no means a comprehensive guide to Italian wines, though, which are notorious for being confusing and hard to categorize. This is a tip-of-the-iceberg overview. It’s not even the CliffsNotes; think of these as the margin notes on your CliffsNotes. My attempt is to cover the specifics, so you can start to get a deeper understanding by doing the fun part: drinking wine!

10 Healthy Snacks You’ll Actually Want to Eat

Snacking is an inevitable part of most of our days, especially as the temperatures drop. You can never go wrong with veggies or a piece of fruit (say what you want…I don’t trust any diet that tells you to cut out fruits – aside from dried ones and bananas since they have too much sugar), but sometimes our taste buds get the best of us and we want something a little bit naughty. Don’t reach for over-processed chips and cookies! There are plenty of alternatives that while not health foods per se, are healthier as they have clean ingredients, as well as some vitamins and nutrients, protein, and fiber. Check out some standouts to add to your shopping list!

Valentine’s Day: Foodie Gifts That Won’t Make Your Lover Fat

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a box of brownies, cookies, and mini cupcakes after returning from a week away. It was so sweet! But it was also the last thing I wanted in my apartment after a weeklong sugar and carb binge. I can’t be trusted around sugar. If it’s nearby, I eat it…and I do so ASAP…and that’s exactly what happened. Chocolate is king on Valentine’s Day, but it’s not the only option! There are plenty of foodie gifts that you can give your lover without “ruining” his or her diet. Here’s a look at some favorites.
