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.

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.

In Panama City, modern society cozies up to the Old World for a unique and charming experience, one that’s perfectly captured at The American Trade Hotel. The American Trade Hotel—AKA the Ace Panama—is a vibrant gem at “the ecological and cultural crossroads of the Americas.” Housed in a gorgeously restored landmark building, the getaway for classy jetsetters and worldly travelers alike only opened its doors a few years ago and already has a grand reputation.

It’s the hotel’s breezy balance of chic and comfortable that does it. Furniture pieces of bold earth tones are picturesquely set against black and white paint and tile in the rooms’ simple, stylish aesthetics. Meanwhile, contemporary minimalism warmly welcomes guests to the lounges and garden courtyards. At the American Trade Hotel, everything feels like in its rightful place and nothing is overdone. As we’ve adored the American Trade Hotel since it hit the hospitality scene, we chatted with Spotted SF’s Leslie Santarina, who was recently a guest. Even though her ventures are predominantly based in San Francisco, she has a wonderful habit of exploring the rest of the world too—and she has good taste.
