Treadmill And Tequila

photos by Phil Yoon
Last week I attended the Treadmill And Tequila workout class alongside one of my favorite dj's/fitness gurus, Hannah Fallis Bronfman at Barry's Bootcamp. After an amazing sweat session we enjoyed a few cocktails curtesy of Don Julio. I mean, who wouldn't want a low calorie cocktail after a 60 min workout?

If you like a kick in your drinks you're going to love this one below.

Life Update

Hey Trendsters!! I cannot believe it's October 4th already! It's been awhile since we last chatted and I have a quick life updates for ya'll. 

My house renovation finally started and I couldn't be more excited. We are midway in the process and it seems like its taking years to finish up. I've gotten so many messages from you guys asking to do a house tour, to share my tile selections, living room decor, etc. I try to share as much as I can via snapchat and instastories as it's more organic and in the moment that way.. so if you want behind the scenes make sure to follow me on instagram ( @nytrendyoms) and on snapchat (JohnnybellSan). Believe me, I want the renovations to be done as much as all of you want to see the final results. You know what they say.. 'good things take time'.

A few days ago I was very ill. Runny nose, never ending migraines, fever, terrible stomach pain, and the list goes on. Didn't know what it was and didn't even bother checking with my doctor. I'm one of those people who doesn't like medications, hospitals or doctors. I believe that with time, a little rest, Vapo Rub and some good ol' chicken soup (made by grandma, of course) everything will be ok.

I'm a little better now but I'm laying low until I reach my full 100%.

In better news.. I was finally able to bring my computer to our hotel in which we're staying till the reno is done. I have so many photos/stories to share in the next few days that have just been waiting to be published. 

Ok, that's it. Short and simple.. just like me :)
Good night.

Gardenia

IMG_2436

Being without gas for over one month after purchasing our new home hasn't been too good on our belly's or on our wallets. Eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner can get quite boring and expensive after awhile especially when there's four of us. Realistically theres only so much you can eat. I get sushi one day, Indian, Dominican, Italian, and Mexican another.  It almost seems like a routine and I'm not too fond about routines. So when Gardenia invited me over to try their food.. I accepted.

I first heard about Gardenia a few months ago when I was still in the process of purchasing my house. To my surprise house hunting was more time consuming than I thought. Cutting to the chase, I didn't have time to visit until now and since I love sharing cool restaurants who serve delicious food.. here is one. Gardenia.. has Happy Hour Monday-Saturday from 4PM-6:30PM. It is located on 64 Drowning St. New York, NY 10014.

Gardenia is known to be a modern Latin-accented Mediterranean restaurant serving intricate cocktails in a bright airy setting. More like.. all my prayers answered!

From the outside it looks like an airy restaurant perfect for first dates. After entering it becomes so much more. I love how open and delicate the space is, how the plants hang off the middle of the room and how it's equally as beautiful during the day and at night.

Below you'll find all that my friend and I ordered.
Everything was delicious!!
