Meow Parlour – New York City Cat Cafe

I may spend quite a bit of my free time — and possibly work hours — enjoying dessert. So when I heard Macaron Parlour was opening Meow Parlour downtown my little heart said Nice to meet you, where you been? Oh wait, that was probably Taylor Swift, who by the way the cafe has given VIP access.

Either way, I knew I wanted to find my way into what would be New York’s first permanent cat cafe. Nothing seemed more relaxing than spending time with some rescue kitties while indulging on macarons.

Lucky for me, my friend Rachel rocks. Wepa! And she invited me to her private party at Meow Parlour before it opened to the public on December 15th. Good friend, right?

Even better, she ordered the macarons for her party while drunk so there were pretty much a million great flavors for me to enjoy. I found myself overwhelmed with all the choices. My macaron favorites were the hazelnut, raspberry chocolate and apple cider caramel.

Want to hear about the cats? Every single last one of the cats that walked around (or in the case of one I sat next to who catnapped) are available for adoption via Kitty Kind the no-kill shelter here in the city. Some of the cats were playful. Some of them rested to the side on their own. Often they climbed the various wall structures that were created especially for them.


Meow Parlour is a cat playground where people can equally be as comfortable with tabbies, calicos and short hairs on the floor pillows or at the high tables with stools. Feline fun for everyone!

And yes, I did check to find out more information about my favorite feline — Squinkles — but Kitty Kind wants her to be adopted with her sister. My apartment definitely isn’t a two cat home. So I’ll just have to go back to visit her and the other awesome cats at Meow Parlour.

If you want to go visit the cats or find out how to adopt one (or two) visit the Meow Parlour website. Sessions start at $4 for a half hour.

Holiday Party Ready with Jergens


Holiday parties require outfits that shimmer, sparkle and shine. And often those outfits leave arms and legs in view at holiday gatherings.

Sure stackable rings and an arm party are noticable but beautiful skin is the best accessory to your holiday look this season.

Want to know know how to achieve flawless skin for the holidays? Walk into your local Target or CVS store and pick up Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream!

The all-in-one moisturizer contains an exclusive blend of natural Shea Butter, skin-smoothing emollients, and Firm Perfecting Complex to enhance texture and luminosity. It also contains patent-pending Self Adjusting Tone Technology to give skin a perfectly even tone.

Jergens BB Body Cream

Every since I was handed a tube of Jergens BB Body cream I’ve been relying on it to illuminate areas I want to highlight at holiday parties. Jergens BB Perfecting Skin Cream rubs in sheer and absorbs into the skin just like a body moisturizer.

And you see those results immediately. Within five days it also evens skin tone, visibly firms skin, and minimizes the appearance of imperfections on areas it is applied to on the body.

Sure I’ve always drank my fill of water to keep my skin clear (totally not an Old Wives’ Tale … Gabi Union told me that and well.. look at her skin!) but I am so happy Jergens has a BB cream that can be used all over the body.

Makeup artist Pati Dubroff — she’s been trusted to make up the faces of celebrities including Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington — uses BB cream on her clients to achieve special looks. So if my recommendation to help you be flawless this holiday season wasn’t enough, you’ll definitely want to trust her fab judgement.

Jergens is on Facebook. Check them out!
