Cravings for Chrissy Teigen + Target 

Chrissy Teigen is releasing new line of organic-shaped stoneware, tableware and cooking tools launching today exclusively at Target. This comes days after her newest cookbook, “Cravings: Hungry for More,” I love Chrissy’s cookbooks and am definitely ordering this one to try!

Millenials are Dropping the Divorce Rate

New data shows the US divorce rate dropped 18% from 2008 to 2016. While baby boomers married young, divorced, and remarried, Gen X and especially millennials are being pickier about who they marry, tying the knot at older ages when education, careers and finances are on track. Being more educated before you marry and only doing it because you want to — isn’t that how it should be?

High-Speed Trains Across the US

From California to Florida, train travel is about to get a lot faster across the country. It’s possible to get from Milan to Rome in under three hours, but getting between major cities in the US has long been relegated to lengthy road trips or flights. This read shows what’s next for US high-speed train travel — I’m definitely into SF > LA in under three hours, but it’s not projected till 2033!

Death of the Big-Box Gym

The rise of technology and how it’s changed the fitness market — personalized workout options like Mindbody and Class Pass are slowly killing the big-box gym. As on-demand economy apps like Uber and Postmates have altered how consumers think about things like ownership, membership, and purchasing, people want that same option to build their own experience for their workout.

Eat Like a Local when Traveling

Everyone says you should follow the lead of locals when traveling, but actual suggestions on how to do that tend to be vague. In this read are some tips on how can you actually find the best local food while traveling like doing your research (with a few reliable places to check for that), signing up for a food tour, checking with bar and restaurant staff, taking online reviews with a grain of salt, and keeping an eye out for crowded street food spots.

Low-High: Two Buck Chuck + Somm 3

Everyone knows about Trader Joe’s “Two Buck Chuck” — Charles Shaw wine at $2.99 per bottle. Since debuting in 2003, Two Buck Chuck has sold has sold over a billion bottles.  Like it or not (and to be clear — I do not!) you have to admit that they changed the industry…but did you know the real Charles Shaw was barely even involved with the release of the wine under his name? Hit the link for the tale of one brand, two men, and the wine industry revolution.

Last but not least, the trailer for Somm 3 is here and you should check it out! Movie coming soon.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing rest of your weekend!

    Ugh, I have been waiting for that high speed SF-LA train forever. I can’t believe it won’t happen until 2033 now– there was a point where they said it would only be a few years away.

      I know, 2033 seems too far out to even MENTION, doesn’t it?! Just a tease!
