What is your favorite local restaurant?
Ani Ramen. I am a huge soup lover, and that bowl of deliciousness often calls my name. You can find me dining alone on any given afternoon.
What is your favorite local boutique?
I like to shop at Pink Jewels in Livingston. Great for picking up a gift or treating yourself. They have everything from clothing, to home accessories and jewelry…for everyone in your life.
What is your favorite salon or spa?
I LOVE Beige and Blanc in Livingston. Low key, easy, and on a Tuesday afternoon, not crowded. I feel like a valued customer no matter how often I come in or what I am having done.
What is your favorite local health and wellness center?
Align Wellness in Millburn is the studio. Their philosophy is, “where fitness is never one-size-fits-all.” Instructors that are more than just the “teacher” and options for all different types of exercise as well as nutrition, even an infrared sauna.
Where is your favorite local place for home decor?
I’m a Home Goods girl, I like to combine eclectic looks to fill my home with coziness and joy.
Where is your favorite local daytime hangout?
I have been hanging at The CoCo, a co-working space in Summit.
What is your favorite nighttime hangout?
I love Kitchen Step in Jersey City!
What is your favorite local place to do business?
Able Baker in Maplewood, I can not only pick up some gluten free treats for my kids, but working in their space gives me an opportunity to meet new friends and see old ones. Everyone loves to meet at Able Baker to get their favorite homemade baked yumminess.
What is your favorite “Made in Jersey” product?
Green Nectar Juicery, made in Millburn daily. The store has such a great vibe and I can continue to get my micronutrients and minerals by drinking their juices and their soups & foods too.
What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district?
I love to walk through the city, but when its time to stay close at home, a good walk through Summit fills my soul. All the small businesses, the care and variety of stores keeps me busy.
What is your favorite New Jersey-based service business?
Livingston Circle Carwash, a clean car says a ton about you and what you think of your space. They just moved to the Livingston Circle, making it easy to drop in and get my car cleaned no matter what meetings I am running to. There are options available to just get an outside wash or get a deep cleaning. They accommodate my needs and value my business. Thanks LCCW!
How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Everyone has taken a step back to re-evaluate our new normal. There has been a lull, but I feel the momentum bubbling back up. Creating cocktails at home is easy with the right ingredients, and if I can connect through videos to lighten the mood, I am happy to be of service.
