Shopping for Health Insurance

I called Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield a few weeks ago and discovered much to my dismay, that my Silver Plan Premium would increase by 30% in 2018. No thanks! So through the Freelancers Union, I'm going to switch to Emblem Health, once I confirm that most of my doctors are covered. My plan cost would actually stay the same. A small miracle!

Industry City Brooklyn

Earlier today, I went to the new Industry City Food Hall in Brooklyn for lunch. I had amazing salmon, cream cheese with fresh avocado slices on multigrain bread from Avocadria and Rose infused ice cream from Blue Marble Ice Cream, which was very refreshing!

My parents used to drive me to the Costco nearby 10 years ago and we'd pass this vast expanse of abandoned buildings, which is now home to a bustling Industry City.

Found a Natural Deodorant that Actually Works

I’ve been using ArmPit Armor, featured on Shark Tank, for a couple of days now. This stuff does a great job of keeping me dry and smelling fresh no matter what! The secret is activated charcoal, a natural way to kill bacteria! I’m an ArmPit Armor convert!

I’d been using Dove Deodorant for years, but it has a significant amount of Aluminum, which is downright unhealthy.

Amazon Prime Epic Fail

I've been taking care of my Mom's cats, Chester and Sabrina in my new apartment since July while her house is under construction. I've been ordering Fancy Feast via Amazon, but they only had a case of one flavor, fish, chicken, etc. I know I don't like to eat the same food every day...So I signed up for a 30-day free trail of Amazon Prime so I could order the Fancy Feast Variety Pack.

When I saw that my delivery date had come and gone, I logged into my Amazon Account and noticed that my shipment needs to be picked up at a UPS Store that's not even in Bay Ridge, so I'll have to take time out of my busy day tomorrow to take the subway to pick it up...Will inquire as to what happend, as I provied a vaid shipping address and would prefer not to schlep an hour round trip! So much for convenience...
