Things To Do In New York City

Over 60 million people every year will visit one city in the US; it is the home to some of the most iconic buildings and monuments in the history of this country. That place is, of course, New York City. If you are interested in being one of those people that visits NYC this year, then here is a look at some of the things you might want to do with your time in the city that never sleeps.

Theatre

One of the most popular things to do in New York City is to take a trip to the theatre, but this isn’t just any show. This is a show on Broadway, the canyon of heroes. For around a century, theatre has been the centerpiece to Times Square, the place where the great and the good come to see some of the finest plays, musical, and actors from around the world perform. There are always last minute Broadway tickets available, so don’t worry if you arrive without having pre-booked your experience. But do be aware, the more popular shows like Book of Mormon may very well sell out in advance of your trip, so planning ahead isn’t the worst idea.

For some just walking around this part of the city is enough, but if you can get inside some of the historic theatres you will be experiencing something special.

Attractions

Walking around New York City, it is hard to avoid coming across major attractions. You are never too far away from an impressive structure or monument to past times. For those of you looking for a natural escape, there is Central Park, a green space to help you escape the hustle and bustle of this thriving city. But it is architecture people come to New York to see, and you will not be disappointed.

The most iconic of the buildings in New York is without doubt the Empire State Building. As if it wasn’t unique enough with its over 80 meter spire, the film King Kong cemented its legacy as a piece of American history. Taking the time to ascend to the viewing deck will give you a view of New York that will let you see all the way out to New Jersey and is good for spotting some of the other special buildings in the local area. A little trick for you, a trip to the top of the Rockefeller Center will allow you to view New York with the Empire State Building as its centerpiece.

Memorial

The final thing to discuss when we talk about a visit to New York is how this wonderful city responded to the greatest attack on American soil. The memorial that now stands where the World Trade Center buildings once stood is nothing short of stunning. You will be in awe at how this city is able to have such a peaceful site that is built for reflection and respect; remembering those awful events of 2001 but also how the country came together and especially New York City.

Period Panties!! | Lilova.co

Ok, Ladies… what do you think of “period panties”? I’m not talking about the panties tucked in the back of panty drawer that are only reserved for those that you are actually on your period. No, period panties are panties designed to be worn without any sort of pad or tampon!! Yep, you drip directly into the panties.

I know this sounds a bit weird, risky, and a bit gross.  The whole idea gives me anxiety. But these panties are said to hold as much as 2 tampons would hold!! Unbelievably amazing though…

“Olivia” Thong $24

Here is a look at the panties:   These are from https://lilova.co

Every body is different, so is every flow. Knowing your flow will help you better take advantage of your Lilova.

2. If you have a regular or light flow, you can wear your Lilova on every day and night of your period, lucky you!

Ethical Beauty on a Budget

As people are becoming more aware of how different products can damage the planet, so the demand for ethical items is growing. With beauty products, for instance, women are seeking products that are natural. They do not want to be using chemicals that could harm their skin or for them to be in packaging that is not eco-friendly.

You may be surprised just how many things from your cupboards or on the food shelves in the stores, can be used in your beauty routine.

Bicarbonate of Soda

Bicarb can be used in several ways including as a hand wash, a teeth whitener or a dry shampoo. It is also great for exfoliating, which it does in a gentle and natural way. Mix it with a little water and rub onto your skin, and then just rinse it off. The effect will be immediate and you will soon feel the benefit, especially if your skin is delicate.

Natural Makeup

There are many natural makeup products on the market these days, as the makers have realized what a huge base of customers there is for eco-friendly products. As well as doing the job just as well, they often have better aromas, as is the case with eco friendly nail polish. Most of these products get their smell from the natural products used in them, and these are much more pleasant than the smells given off by chemicals.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is not only one of the best oils to cook with, but it also makes an amazing inexpensive moisturizer too.  You can use it all over your body and hair. It has a molecular structure similar to your skin, so it will soak in rather than sitting on top. This is brilliant because you are not left with a greasy feel after using it.

Another natural oil that is very good if you have a spot you want to get rid of is tea tree oil. It has antibacterial and antiseptic properties so will kill off the bacteria that cause acne. You just have to put a little on some cotton wool and run the spot gently with it.

Other Natural Beauty Products

If you have some oats in your cupboard they are great for softening rough skin. Pour some into a net bag and put them in your bath. Face masks can be made from avocado, yogurt, and lemon mixed together, or by rubbing honey in to your face as it has antibacterial properties. Tomatoes are good for your face too as they have a powerful antioxidant that calms and brightens dull skin. If you get sunburned or stressed out skin tomatoes could be the ideal solution. Cucumber can help to reduce puffiness in the skin, especially around your eyes. Whatever you use around your eyes be very gentle as this is where some of the most sensitive skin we have is.

There is no need to spend fortunes on beauty preparations when there are so many natural things that can keep your skin looking good.

Post Holiday DETOX ROUTINE

Now that the holiday season is over, time to start a detox routine. For me, the holiday season is about good times, good food, and good drinks. I indulged completely this past season! I consumed lots of sweet treats and drank my fair share of eggnog! I believe I gained just about 5 pounds lol. Yep! I indulged and I enjoyed it!

So, now it’s time to reclaim my health and my waistline!

Just like every other New Year Resolution, I want to get fit and loose weight. Though I have had a gym membership for years, finding time during the week to hit the gym is a challenge because I work full-time. I am limited to the weekend only.

But here is how I plan to reset and reclaim my health.

Drinking More Water

I have began to drink more water each day and cutting down my soda intake. Water really helps with craving my need to snack and drinking water keeps the body and skin super hydrated. Overall, it just makes me feel healthier.

Exercise

Though I work constantly, I find time while home to exercise a bit, Saturdays and Sundays I spend 1.5 hours in the gym each day.

Detox Teas

Detox teas are apart of my daily routine. I drink a tea morning and night because they help boost my metabolism to help promote weight loss and healthy digestion.

Rest

Each night, no matter where I am in the world, I make it business to get my full 8 hours of sleep. I have to have a full nights rest to even function properly. If my sleep is off, then my entire day will be off it seems.

I hope you find my suggestions, helpful! Here are a few of my favorite detox tea brands! 

Also here are a few things I like to take to the gym with me!
