Iron Flower Fitness

My recent obsession with Couptessa led me to one of my favorite new health & beauty spots last Saturday. I’ve been hoarding little discount coupons for a couple of months now, so I decided to finally dust one off and check out Iron Flower Fitness, a recent addition to the Wynwood area, nestled at the corner of 73rd and Biscayne.

I was drawn in by the $25 mani/pedi deal but was really taken by the concept – the quirky (and really chic) spot offers beauty essentials such as facials, massages, manicure and pedicure services, and waxing along with an active curriculum that’s anything but standard – Hot Seat and Cheer Fit are at the top of my personal list. Check out their full list of classes here. (Added perk – free gated parking included.) Here’s to getting creative with those resolutions!


Like many of you, I was sad to see 2010 come to a close; it was a transitional year that led to many significant changes. I left a job where I’d spent the better part of my career-building years to take a leap of faith in an entirely new industry, lived entirely off freelance work for a few wonderfully exciting months, and started Bubbles & Ink, my favorite creative outlet. If you’ve ever even glanced at the words on this page, I am truly grateful. The hope that anything I write matters even remotely to anyone is what keeps me going. Nostalgic though I am for the year we left behind, it is with nothing short of eager anticipation that I welcome the pristine hope attached to this new year. May you all fill 2011 with the sparkling moments you deserve.

P.S. That cake was actually still delicious after one year. I knew I’d made the right choice when I hired Elegant Temptations!
