Burlesque dancing:

Yes, that’s right burlesque dancing. There is nothing sexier than you feeling your best and sexiest while getting in touch with your sensuality. Although it gets confused with more risqué performances it is more about the exaggerated parody of body movement and in it’s purest form is more about modesty. Burlesque dancing can be found in a number of local dance studios, and if requested I’m sure they would look into offering it. This type of dancing can be a moderately intense cardio workout, plus it’s not as core intensive as pole dancing and is great for every shape and size.

Subscription Surprise Service

I don’t know about you, but it feels like Christmas when I get a package in the mail. And it feels even more Christmassy when I have no idea what’s in the package. With so many subscription services on the market, it makes it fun to try new products and styles you can add to your collection. Why not try an Artsnack (arts and crafts), Home Chef (cooking), CurlBox by Myleik Teele (beauty products), or Stitch Fix and RocksBox for fashion and accessories?

Underground pop-up dinner parties:

Pop-up dinner parties are happening all over the world right under your nose. Sometimes they are accompanied by a colorful and elaborate story about where the food originated or in tandem with an art class or makers experience. Companies like Dinner Lab (national), Hush (DC), and rogueApron (Atlanta) have been growing in popularity over the past few years. When you reserve your space you are notified of a secret pop-up location where you and others will gather to enjoy a meal created by anyone from a master chef to a mother cooking traditional fair in her apartment kitchen. Checkout www.eatwith.com for a few interesting and reasonable experiences to start.

Of course, as the new year begins we can’t help but start thinking about just how to harness the newness of the year and the possibilities to start something new, complete something started, and continue our personal transformations.
