3 Day Cleanse.png
  1. Raw, Organic Tonics & Cleanses
    Perfect for those who need to refuel, rehydrate and detox

    I love food & wine, but I also love feeling good & fitting into my skinny jeans.  To keep me balanced I like to do a 2-3 day cleanse once a month. The benefits go way beyond the waistline.  I feel energized, my body feels hydrated, my skin glows, and I’m more focused at work. Cleansing is known to enhance your digestive system, eliminate toxins in your liver & kidneys and increase your body’s ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients. This makes the perfect gift for someone who is looking to maintain a healthy diet or looking to reset & refuel -- especially post holidays!

2. Spinning for those who love Metrics
Perfect for those who love cardio & competition

My favorite way to sweat is on a spin bike with hip hop blasting through the speakers with my cadence matching the rhythm & beat.  Spin is the perfect way for me to have some fun while keeping my heart healthy. This is the perfect gift for anyone looking to burn calories, build endurance, and connect and compete with like minded souls.


3. Luxurious Facials & Massages
Perfect for those who love to be pampered

Umm, do I need to say more?!  I’m definitely a woman who works hard, but also likes to play hard.  One of my favorite ways to relax and restore is at a luxe spa and have a facial or massage. I also like to go with family or friends.  Massages & facials have so many health benefits from reducing stress, anxiety, and hypertension. In addition they enhance blood circulation, improve longevity and best of all they feel ah-mazing! This is the perfect gift for someone looking to restore either mentally or physically.


4. Groceries & Delivery
Perfect for those who love to eat well, but also love convenience

As a busy entrepreneur, I’m always looking for ways to enhance my productivity and save time.  I love eating home-cooked meals but don’t always have the time to go grocery shopping. This is the perfect gift for someone who is juggling a lot of things (work/life) but wants to eat well.

5. Pilates Megaformer
Perfect for those who love to build strength & stability

My favorite way to stay strong is practicing pilates on a megaformer machine.  It’s the perfect full-body workout with an extra twist. Pilates is the perfect gift for someone who loves to be challenged, wants to enhance their strength and stability, and enjoys sweating with friends.

6. Athletic Apparel & Shoes
Perfect for the running-obsessed individual
I just completed my first marathon this past fall, so I know the value of a good running shoe! According to researchers, running shoes should be replaced anywhere from 300 and 500 miles after your first run. If you are running five miles three times a week, that means you are ready for a new pair every five to six months. This makes the perfect gift for someone who is training for a race or someone who just loves to get out and hit the pavement during the winter months.

7. Luxe Yoga Athletic Apparel
Perfect for the stylish, fit individual

As a part-time yoga instructor teaching Rocket and Vinyasa Yoga in Washington, DC, I like to sport fresh threads when leading my students through these practices. I have yet to meet anyone who isn’t crazy about a new pair of comfy leggings!

8. Rock-Climbing Pass
Perfect for the adventurous, thrill-seeking individual
The summer months are perfect for outdoor excursions and adventures, but during winter, there are fewer ways to itch that adventurous scratch. That’s why I love to practice indoor climbing - not only does it tone the shoulders and arms, it leaves me with a sense of accomplishment at the end of every session.

9. 1 Year On-Demand Meditation Subscription
Perfect for the person with a jam-packed calendar
During the holidays, life’s pace can seem to be put on fast-forward. Trying to balance my normal work schedule, workout regimine and social life with the additional holiday festivities can get overwhelming quickly. Using an on-demand meditation subscription helps me take a few minutes every day to clear my mind and get grounded, resulting in my ability to stay present in the fun moments and breathe through any moments my jam-packed calendar starts to look scary.


10. Bikram Yoga Class
Perfect for the yogi looking for a sweat
My first ever yoga class was Bikram-inspired, so this practice holds a special place in my heart. The warm studio and slow, intentional movements are perfect for when the cold winter months begin to get to me.
