Rover.com is the leading online community that connects dog owners with trusted dog sitters, and is where dogs beg to stay. We believe that all dogs deserve safe, loving homes even when their owners are away, and that’s why we created Rover. Our services provide an alternative to traditional caged boarding facilities, or family, friends and neighbors who are often asked to sit in a pinch. Rover currently operates nationwide, with 150,000 members enrolled, more than 25,000 approved sitters in over 4,300 cities across the U.S., and approximately 1,000 sitter options in each of the top 20 markets. Additionally, we believe all dogs deserve a happy and loving home and that’s why we’re committed to supporting animal shelters and companion animal programs across the nation. We also make it easy for sitters to donate a portion of their proceeds to local shelters through our Sit-a-Dog, Save-a-Lifeprogram, saving the lives of dogs everywhere.

NYC life can be quite hectic. The crowds, the traffic, the noise. Sometimes all you need is a little pampering to get you back into the swing of things and lucky for New Yorkers, there’s a great spot right in Midtown that offers relaxing spa treatments, sleep therapy systems and skincare in an incredible setting. Introducing YeloSpa!
Created and designed as a sanctuary to help urbanites unwind and heal from the pressures of modern life, YeloSpa offers a unique combo of spa and wellness treatments that refresh the mind and body, and awaken the soul! It’s been featured everywhere, too, from Cosmo and NY Mag, to the WSJ and the Today Show.
YeloSpa sessions take place in their patented cocoon-like treatment cabins calls “YeloCabs” where you can completely customize your aromatherapy, sound and light settings. But it doesn’t stop there — YeloCabs are also equipped with custom designed zero gravity YeloChairs, which recline deeply so that your legs are elevated above the heart, providing a feeling of weightlessness and allowing the heart rate to slow down more quickly, which, of course, encourages deep relaxation in minutes.
YeloSpa offers everything you can imagine a busy New Yorker needs.
Massages. Yelo specializes in reflexology according to the Ingham method, and is performed by licensed YeloPros. Massage treatments are designed to balance and ease specific aches or ailments so that you can emerge refresh and energized. There’s also Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports, and Aromatherapy massage treatments to choose from.
Skincare. Yelo knows its skincare, that’s for sure. Advanced treatments here include facials, scrubs, wraps, and waxing.
Napping. Ok, it might seem strange to pay to nap but Yelo has developed their very own “YeloNap” system that lasts between 20 – 40 minutes and has been medically proven to increase alertness and productivity. Imagine taking a power nap during a busy day of business meetings–Heaven!
Yelo also offers other specialized services like the 1-hour Runners Recovery Experience ($120), which focuses on areas of your body that are overworked, to reduce muscle fatigue and decrease tension. There’s also caviar facials ($175) and chamomile body scrubs ($200). So good!
If you’re feeling like you need a little pampering, I can’t recommend this place more. And YeloSpa also offers a bunch of deals on their website, as well as gift cards for spoiling friends and family. Head on over to Yelonyc.com to check out this fab place!
Avon calling! Some of us only know Avon as the door-to-door cosmetics giant, but this incredible brand has just gone from strength to strength, year after year, with its fab line of cosmetics, perfumes, footwear, and fashion. And with celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Fergie, Salma Hayek, and even designer Diane von Furstenberg partnering up with the company, Avon is just getting bigger and better. Oh, and another reason I have major love for Avon — this company goes above and beyond with issues relating to women, such as their Breast Cancer Crusade and Speak Out Against Domestic Violence programs.
Avon has just released their Signature Collection! After 40 years in the archives, the 4A monogram (a symbol of Avon’s heritage), is making it’s long-awaited debut! In the 60′s and 70′s, Avon featured this monogram on evvvverything, from product packaging to makeup fashion accessories. The four A’s in the iconic logo symbolized the dedicated Avon representative motto: “Anytime, Anywhere, Always, Ask.”
The Signature Collection:
The Mailyn Tote ($39.99) and the Mailyn Wallet ($19.99) both feature the iconic Avon monogram, with a charming 4A logo tag/embellishment on the front. What do I love about the tote? Having worked in the handbag industry, I know a good tote when I see one and Avon has no doubt put in a lot of time and energy to get this handbag at the level it is. I love the handbag’s relaxed feel, its contrast straps (and the thoughtful buckle detail), as well as the roomy interior — you can place all your daily essentials in here. The wallet is just as neat. I LOVE the size of this wallet. I’m not a huge fan of small wallets and this one is the perfect size for taking out on its own or just throwing into the tote at a moment’s notice. The wallet is choc-full of organizational pockets and 6 credit card slots.
Love the contrasting colors, love the high quality and definitely loving the Avon prices. Treat yourself to these sweet pieces or grab them for your BFF. Avon is also the best place to pick up gift sets for the holidays — just go to Avon.com or contact your local Avon rep.
They say an apple a day keeps the Dr away and I think apples are one of the most versatile fruits out there. I asked Janice why she loves apples so much and she said there are tons of variety, textures, sweetness, tartness and they are juicy and filling. That’s good enough for me. But my confession is that I don’t know how to BITE an apple, my teeth are not strong and my mouth is small. I have to – have to! – eat apples, sliced and cored. Yes, I know.
There is a new snack in town! It is called BARE and you can include this in your daily snacking if you want to ‘bare’ your midriff this spring summer, far away I know… BARE snacks are made 100% from natural ingredients and its new Crunchy Chile Lime Apple Chips and Crunchy Sea Salt Caramel Apple Chips have only 50 calories of deliciousness per serving – perfect for healthy snacking!
These are NOTHING like the soggy apple rings you can get at health food stores. This is way better. They have rad flavors that makes it anything but boring. It does not compromise the delight of apples in any artificial way and no two piece is identical.
