Class Review: Pure Yoga’s Zen Flow Yoga Class

Pure Yoga’s Upper West Side studio is a beautiful experience from the moment you walk through its front doors. It hits you with warm mood lighting and a spike in temperature to about 75 degrees. The entryway is full of meditative and Buddhist art, gorgeous red and copper mandalas and signs such as the below, “Take your chakras to the next level. Join us downstairs.”

Growing up in a predominantly Italian-identifying household with a mother who inherited incredible and authentic Southern Italian culinary skills, it’s safe to say I was spoiled, especially when it came to food. One of the best naturally wonderful things about Italy is that you could […]

Book Review – The Cactus by Sarah Haywood

It’s been a while since I’ve read a novel where there is one character who is so unique, borderline strange, poignant and well-developed through dialogue and actions that they feel human and are the main reason why the book is a success. The last book […]

Summer Fridays are golden. The office banter is lighter because you know the workload will be too. If you’re lucky, you can sneak out and start the weekend a few hours early. The sun shines brighter and midday walks and after-work happy hours become rituals. As if summer Fridays aren’t wonderful enough on their own, this week we’ve been gifted with a Friday that’s also a national holiday worth celebrating… National Donut Day 😉

I’ve always had a soft spot for donuts – particularly Entenmann’s brand. For as long as I can remember, every time my grandma comes to visit she would bring an assortment of Entenmann’s goodies and we would sit and chat over donuts and tea; the classic combination.

Side Note: If you’ve never dunked an Entenmann’s powdered sugar donut in hot tea you’re missing out on the perfect dessert flavor and consistency. And what could be a better time to try it out than this National Donut Day?

I often write about healthy recipes, but I like to toss some balance into the mix as well (remember my Pistachio Cannoli Cake recipe? Yum). We all deserve a little sugar in our lives after all.  But I’m the first person to admit that I have a sweet tooth, and that’s totally okay. I truly believe in moderation and if at the end of a long day you want to give yourself a little sweet treat, go for it. You don’t have to earn these treats, but you can give yourself the permission to indulge.

Now I know I’m not the only person with an affinity for donuts and I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s thought about toppings and flavors that could make them taste even better. Entenmann’s has picked up on this customization trend and wants to reward the creative donut lovers who think of their next donut flavor. The grand prize winner will come away with $5,000, a year’s supply of donuts and their very custom flavor donut will be made and sold during the 2019 holiday season. How cool would that be?

The contest runs until June 14th and you can enter the Entenmann’s Fan Flavor Challenge & Sweepstakes at www.Entenmanns.com/fanflavorchallenge for a chance to win exciting prizes. Entering is really simple – you can use the online “Flavor Maker” to choose your base, flavor, glaze and topping and then can give a creative name to your original creation along with a summary explaining why you’re a fan of Entenmann’s donuts. Each challenge entry will then be reviewed based on passion, creativity and originality by a panel of judges.

In addition to the Fan Flavor Challenge, there are two other opportunities to win big. You can share your original flavor creation on social media for entries for the sweepstakes, which enters you into a random drawing for $1,000. I’ll also be hosting a Twitter contest for a visa gift card on my Twitter page, so make sure you’re following me at @stayclassyxx_ on Twitter to stay tuned on how to enter.

Good luck & enjoy National Donut Day!

Stay classy, xx
