Fast Growing NYC

Fast Growing Companies Based in NYC

New York is the largest city in the United States and it’s the center of the North American business world. Therefore, it should not be surprising that New York is also the base of operations for many of the fastest-growing companies on the planet. Many of these companies are in the tech industry. There seems to be new and exciting startups that are being launched every day. Here are a few of the companies based in New York City that are growing substantially.



  1. StartApp   screenshot-2016-09-27-14-54-54  

This is a company that specializes in creating advertisements that can be found in various tablet and smartphone mobile apps. There are many other competing companies in this particular industry. Facebook and Google are both heavily involved in it. However, that has not stopped StartApp’s overall revenue from increasing by almost 22,000 percent during the previous three years. One of the reasons this company has been able to grow at such a rapid rate is the fact that it was the first company that focused on creating advertisements that were made only for a mobile device. Ad companies had previously just made desktop banner ads smaller.

A Man’s Perspective

A Man’s Perspective: Best Fall Looks for The Ladies           


While it’s still very amusing to watch grown women get so excited about the fall season, I will say that autumn is a good time of year. The leaves are changing, the weather is cooler and the women are running to Starbucks to get anything with pumpkin in it. All jokes aside, have you ever wondered what a man’s take is on women’s fall/winter fashions?  I am about to reveal which fall fashions guys go crazy over, and which ones we don’t.



It comes to no surprise that we love skin tight leggings on women. We love a woman who is comfortable in her own skin. Leggings coupled with dresses or skirts are always eye-catching. Some may think it’s too basic others will say it’s about the comfort, what’s your take?



Most men, including myself, are big fans of boots (Cowboys are my fav!) The knee high boots that make women’s legs look a mile long are sexy. Ankle booties paired with a dress or skirt creates a very sexy outfit. Even a pair of Ugg boots with leggings and a sweater is a nice outfit. Boots are a go!



Men love a woman in a dress! I KNOW I DO!! I think this goes beyond any specific season, but there are some fun dresses to play around with in the fall. A few options include an oversized t-shirt dress with leggings, a sweater dress with ankle booties, or a formal dress with heels. Dresses are always in style and men are certain to take notice.


Skin and Lips

Yes, your skincare and lips are part of your fall wardrobe. With the season change, the air is much drier and colder; this can cause dryness, redness, and peeling. Take it from me I  dislike that uncomfortable feeling. Your skin is one of the first things that anyone notices about you. Taking extra care to keep your skin and lips moisturized will add a beautiful element to your fall wardrobe. Cocoa or Shea butter can help keep your skin moisturized while EOS lip balm can provide hours of moisture for your lips. Men instantly take notice of healthy glowing skin and lips.



This may come as a surprise, but men love hats on women. Beanies, floppy brim hats or a baseball cap. Men find hats a very sexy and confident look. Make sure to stock your closet with lots of great hats this season. I know I love my many hats! 🙂

Have fun this fall with your wardrobe. Following these few trends are sure to get you a few second glances and maybe a formal invite to dinner!

Subscription Services

Three Subscription Services You Should Try


Subscription services are all the rage right now. There are monthly subscriptions for everything from food items to Star Wars collectibles, and the number of services is growing each month. The great thing about a subscription box is that, in most cases, the person receiving the box doesn’t know what is inside until it arrives, which makes them feel like they are getting a birthday or Christmas gift every month.


Sorting out the best subscription service products can be difficult, so here is a brief list of some of the better services available.


  1. Fabletics screenshot-2016-09-26-19-32-30


There seems to be a big misconception that subscription services are mainly used by male geeks and fanboys. Fabletics has proven that young women like subscription boxes, too. Fabletics is the creation of actress Kate Hudson. The company specializes in monthly boxes which contain a complete outfit of active wear for women. The clothes are stylish and coordinated, and many monthly selections are handpicked by Hudson herself and reminiscent of her own exquisite taste. The box is affordably priced at just $49.95 per month on a recurring subscription, and VIP members also have the option of making single purchases whenever they desire.


  1. Loot Crate  Screenshot 2016-09-26 19.33.50.png


Loot Crate is the premier subscription box for all things related to pop culture. This box celebrates comic books, action figures, video games, and popular film franchises like Harry Potter and The Avengers. Each monthly box includes an exclusive t-shirt that can’t be purchased anywhere else, and there are often other exclusives in the box that are designed just for Looters. Subscriptions can be purchased on a monthly recurring basis for less than $20, and there are discounts for purchasing memberships of three, six, and twelve months.


  1. BarkBox  screenshot-2016-09-26-19-35-04


Even pets can get in on the subscription box craze with BarkBox, a monthly subscription which delivers four or five unique pet gifts and treats which are curated to reflect a specific theme. The items of a BarkBox can include a variety of chew toys, all-natural snacks, and even house training aids for owners. The service will even permit returns of any item that does not meet with pet or owner approval. Boxes start at $20 per month and owners can specify things such as their pet’s allergies to ensure a perfect box.
