New York City
REPORTER: The Venue Report



This week's #RealWomenReport is all about one of our favorite girl bosses that just opened New York City's newest wellness hot spot. Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton and her team of innovative wellness seekers saw a need in the bustling streets of NYC when it comes to on-the-go TLC for busy people. Cyndi sought to bring, "a downtown escape for city dwellers seeking a modern path to total relaxation with style, character, and ease." Well, this beautiful (and totally convenient) spot does just that. Chillhouse brings the trifecta of a day well spent to the Lower East Side with a cafe, nail and body focused menu with a light and airy, yet modern vibe designed by EAU.

No stranger to the hustle of entrepreneurship, Cyndi is also the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Taste The Stylea lifestyle blog and brand for the modern working woman. With a forward thinking mindset, Cyndi has a keen eye for discovering unfulfilled markets (on more than one occasion) and expertly offered a solution with her savvy girlboss style. We caught up with her about her newest endeavor on brining well deserved R&R to The Big Apple.

The Future of Ice Cream
New York
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown



With flavors like Cookie Butter Blondie, Vietnamese Iced Coffee, and Vanilla Malt Cookie Dough, this Brooklyn-based artisanal ice cream company isn’t just making our mouths water. They’re also a woman-run food business that doesn’t mess around when it comes to quality, growth, entrepreneurship, and all-around lady bossing. Now available in over 2,000 stores across the States, we'd say this artisanal ice cream company is one worth looking out for. It’s only natural that we’d go to one of their founders for our Real Woman Report of the week.

CEO Crista Freeman recently gave us the mega-scoop on how she and her partner launched Phin & Phebes Ice Cream out of their Brooklyn kitchen and she tops it off with a cherry by telling us all about how she learned to trust her gut.  More sweetness below. And if you happen to see her around Brooklyn, maybe throw a high-five her way, but please don't call her honey.

Maybe it’s the rose colored glasses we’ve been wearing, but doesn’t everyone look good in pink?

Hitting all the right hues, this New York hot spot is sure to make your next brunch feel rosé-drunk and full of love and happiness.

REPORTER: The Venue Report

We've been dreaming up this idea of collaborating and building community driven events with the brands that inspire us for quite some time now. Why? Because just like every company, the employees are what make the brand come to life. Interesting, creative and innovative humans are the backbone of every successful brick and mortar store, digital retailer and cool app that you stalk on your phone. Connecting with these inspirational people was on our bucket-list and we don't mean with a typical interview. Because well, interviews are typical. We wanted to spoil them and go all out! They do inspire us, after all. That's why we created #DreamDinnerParty. You can find out a lot about someone by asking what their dream dinner party is. But, we decided to take it even one step further and bring said dream dinner party to life because that's kinda what we are all about here at The Venue Report.
