Hoboken Wellness Crawl

HOBOKEN GIRL HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

HobokenGirl.com, the Hudson County website centered on all things Hoboken and Jersey City, is celebrating health and wellness in Hoboken with their 2nd Annual Hoboken Wellness Crawl.

The Hoboken Wellness Crawl will occur on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M throughout Hoboken with over 80 businesses participating. $1 from every ticket sold is being donated to The Water Project, a charity focused on supplying clean drinking water for communities around the world. Last year the event drew in over 600 people, and more are expected this year.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual event — and supporting local health and wellness businesses in the process. It’s an amazing thing to be able to walk around one square mile and visit all of these local businesses devoted to making us healthier and happier,” says founder Jennifer Casson Tripucka. “This year, hosting the crawl on Earth Day, we chose our charity of choice to be The Water Project, as it is committed to helping communities in need of clean drinking water around the world.”

An entry ticket includes an exclusive map to the Hoboken Wellness Crawl and an entry bracelet used to walk around Hoboken and visit Wellness Stops (at participants’ leisure throughout the day — similar to a bar crawl, sans alcohol). Event-goers will also have access to four Wellness Hubs in Hoboken filled with wellness-focused table vendors. All vendors will be offering samples and giveaways. Over 70 Hudson County businesses are participating.

Tickets are available online here — and on crawl day can be presented at four designated check-in spots around Hoboken – Uptown (Fit Foundry – 1416 Willow Avenue), Downtown (Birch – 92 River Street), West (The Spine and Sports Health Center at the Monroe Center – 720 Monroe Street), and CarePoint Health (109 Grand Street).

Lisa Marie Latino and Aspiring Beauty Blogger Carissa Abraham

Lisa Marie Latino had 1010 WINS radio traffic reporter and aspiring beauty blogger Carissa Abraham in the #HipNJ studio to talk about her incredible radio career and newly realized love of everything skincare. Carissa dishes out the reality check everyone needs to hear about keeping skin healthy and maintaining a youthful glow!

Before Carissa began her passionate skincare journey, she first cultivated her successful radio career. She started out as a DJ during her undergrad years at Seton Hall where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Broadcasting. She went on to land a job with the iHeartMedia, Inc. subsidiary Total Traffic & Weather Network. Her connections here helped her land a job as a substitute traffic reporter and an eventual full-time spot at Z100, New York’s #1 Hit Music Station.

Carissa’s impressive professional career is just one aspect of her resume. She is using her personal love of skincare to start a beauty blog focusing on maintenance and makeup. Her passion began when she noticed her own skin in need of some TLC. She used home remedies and facial mask treatments at first but eventually sought the help of a licensed aesthetician.

After receiving microdermabrasion treatments, Carissa realized how important it is to devote funds to treating bad skin. “Your skin is an investment” she says, “and it’s probably the best investment I’ve ever made!”. Carissa endorses starting treatments early and using quality makeup, like vegan and cruelty-free brands, to maintain fresh results.

See Carissa demo her homemade hair mask made from shea butter and coconut oil. The mask will keep your hair healthy through the dry, unforgiving winter months. It’s so important that you keep your hair clean and toxin-free any time of the year!

You can find Carissa on Instagram (@radiocarissa) and on SnapChat (@radiobellezza) where she posts cool beauty tips daily. Keep up to date so you don’t miss the premiere of her personal beauty blog and updates on her exciting radio career!

#HipNJ Chats with Makeup Mogul Bobbi Brown

#HipNJ’s Maria Falzo recently chatted with makeup mogul Bobbi Brown in this #HipNJ Exclusive!

Bobbi spoke at length about her latest venture, The George Inn. The George is a 32 room, luxury, boutique hotel located in the heart of Brown’s beloved Montclair.

“We love this town,” Brown says of Montclair. “The hotel is really a reflection of our aesthetic and how we like to live.”

Maria and Bobbi also chatted about balancing motherhood with a successful career. “You just have to learn to not sweat the small stuff, and really prioritize what’s important,” she says. “There’s no question, my family was always the top of my list.”

The pair also discussed Bobbi’s next move in the lifestyle world! She will be launching wellness supplements next month on QVC.
