Gracefully You: Jenna Dewan's Book Launch at Mr Purple

By: Finance Foodie

Last week, I attended a lunch hosted by The Mom's, a modern motherhood group, and Spin Master toys (best known for their adorable Hatchimals eggs) celebrating superstar dancer / actress Jenna Dewan's new book Gracefully You.  The event was held at the LES hotspot Mr. Purple, a rooftop bar located in the Hotel Indigo known for its outdoor pool and hip patrons.
I had been wanting to check out Mr. Purple for a while now, as my younger and cooler co-workers constantly rave about their weekends at joint, so I thought this was the perfect excuse to visit. I really love the loft like space, the abundance of seating options both indoor and outside (because who wants to stand for hours on end) and the industrial yet artistic feel.  While I probably didn't get the full experience of the bustling nightlife crowd, there was something refreshing about talking babies with the mom influencers, mocktail in hand, under the disco ball, with a expansive view of downtown Manhattan.

During the Q&A session with The Moms (Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein), Jenna, who is currently expecting her second child, gracefully (pun intended!) answered questions about her current pregnancy (she's more tired and nauseated this time around) and discussed how to feel better, focus on what’s important, and maintain a sense of balance while juggling the demands of life (sounds like everyone who lives in NYC needs to read this book!). She even busted out a dance move with The Moms - impressive especially when you are carrying another human in your belly!

At the end of the event, all the attendees were gifted Jenna's book and some Hatchimals toys to take home. After the inspirational and fun interview, I cannot wait to read more of Jenna's mantras and tips for living your best life!

Noodles and More at Pasta Eater New York City

By: Finance Foodie

This past weekend, the Mister and I found ourselves hungry, cold and wet from the rain in the Union Square are during lunch hour. We were going to head back home but then found ourselves passing by Pasta Eater, a newly opened Italian bistro that specialize in a variety of authentic Italian pasta dishes made with their freshly made (in-house) pasta. As the restaurant looked so cozy and inviting versus the dreary weather outside, we decided to sample the goods and head on in.
