My SoJo Spa Club Experience

Today was a spa day! Sojo Spa Club is a hidden gen in Edgewater, New Jersey. The panoramic views of New York City from the Washington Bridge to Battery Park are simply breathtaking.
My girlfriends and I decided to spend our day of play to relax. At our arrival after our check-in which required no reservation, we we received a bracelet with a numbered tag . We were advised to remove our shoes and place them in a shoes locker. No shoes were permitted anywhere in the facility.
We proceeded to the locker room, changed in our bathing suits, got our robes and headed towards the saunas and therapy rooms. My favorite one was the Himalayan Salt Sauna. I lasted the longest in there. The air was clean and clear and my breathing felt smoother. The Ice Sauna was so interesting because you weren’t necessarily freezing in there. It was refreshing and crisp.

After our indoor bath house experience we decided to explore outside. There are 8 floors of all different sun decks, outdoor pools and baths. My favorites were the Silk Bath, the Foot Massage Path and the Infinity Pool.

We had such a great time and will most certainly be back. Unfortunately there weren’t any appointments available for additional spa services that were at a convientent time for us. We had purchased general addmission to check the place out  and definitely liked what we saw and will be booking appointments ahead of time for sure. They have a whole menu of services that you can get that are extremely reasonably priced. I’m looking forward to our next visit!

Baby Food Transition 

img_1987 For all my moms experimenting with your baby’s food and taking it to the next level, this is for you! I started making my 10month old baked chicken and fish, mac and cheese, egg muffins etc. I’ve also been cutting up fresh fruit for him to try and giving him pieces of cheese. It is definitely tough and takes a lot of patience. If you have any questions or want more details please don’t hesitate to message me on my Contact Page and I will help as much as I can.

Apple Everything!

Hello apple picking season! I love this time of the year! All my shows come back on, the nights get chilly and cozy and fall festivities begin. Hot Apple Cider especially spiked makes my fall nights delightful. I usually just use boiled Shoprite Organic Apple Juice and some cinnamon. If I was in the mood I would add a shot of whiskey. This year I plan on going apple picking and putting together my own recipe using my crockpot. I recommend going to Pennings Farm in Warwick, NY. At the farm, they have a ton of activities for kids and a bar for the adults so you can spend the entire day there. I love shopping in the market before we leave. I can’t wait to take my son there this season!

24 Hour Fitness’s Newest Member

Whether it was playing a sport or in a gym I’ve always been very active. Unfortunately hunting for a new place and packing up our old apartment left me ignoring the gym. Also since my son has gotten more active I can’t manage to do my at home workouts. I loved sharing my at home workouts with you all however I’m feening to put on my headphones and hit the weights. Now that Jameson is older he can also come with me so that helps in a huge way to stay focused on my fitness. I joined 24 Hour Fitness and although I’m paying more than what I was paying at my last gym I am incorporating their child care program which costs extra. The gym is clean, efficient and has a ton of amenities. I had the chance to workout yesterday and today and I am feeling it in all the right places! Can’t wait to get back into a steady routine. Remember beach bodies are made in the winter!

Recycling

Since moving to a town that is strict with recycling, I had to do some research to see what  type of bins I was going to buy, where I was going to put them, where is the town’s recycling center and when are the curbside pick up days. I checked out the town’s website and got all that information and marked the pick up days on the calendar which are twice a month. I had to go to Home Depot anyway to get some keys made so I took a stroll around and found these Rubbermaid 28 qt. Containers that were perfect for us. I decided to put them on the inside door of the attic which is right outside the entry to our kitchen. Now hopefully I remember to put them curbside the night before. Ha! Ha!

Back to Business

Hello all!  I’m currently on a staycation and have gotten my apartment together quite quickly for just moving a few days ago. As I was packing up my old place I found myself needing more moving boxes. I found them on Amazon for a great price however, I had ordered the large ones but definitely should’ve ordered the medium. They were way too big to carry. I found that using plastic shopping bags to wrap all my fragile items with the box lined with extra towels or flat sheets worked extremely well and saved money on bubblewrap. I used my vinyl laundry bags and large utility black garbage bags to transport shoes and clothes and my reusable grocery bags to clear out my fridge and freezer. Every time I move I get better and better at finding ways to stay organized and save money. Message me on my Contact Page with any questions or moving tips. I’m more than happy to help.
