The Thursday {3}: Elite Lifestyle Cuisine, Josh Cellar Wines, IT Cosmetics

Written by:

IT’s Thursday, and you know what that means {IT with a capital T = totally intentional, btw}. But without further ado, here are our editor’s picks for the week:

IT Cosmetics


Fun fact: IT Cosmetics’ HQ is located in downtown Jersey City! The brand known for its bomb-dot-com cc cream, bronzers, and makeup in general is situated right next door to Hoboken. Recently, they sent some of their faves to the HG headquarters, and we were so excited to try them out. Their lip flush, ombré blush, and bronzer pack are definitely our faves! Have you tried any of their products? SO GOOD!!

Josh Cellars Wine


When it comes to wine, I recently stumbled across Josh Cellars Wine, which is a Napa-based vino that does not disappoint. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is under $20, and it’s delicious = perfect for a cozy night in or something you could bring to your friend’s housewarming party. The best part is you can purchase in Hoboken {or online} — at the Garden Wine & Liquor Store, Willow Grocery & Liquor, Augies, Village Market, and Del Friscos also serves it on premise! Wine down Weds every day of the week, obvs.

Elite Lifestyle Cuisine Delivery 


Started by “Muscle Chef” Carlo Filippone, Elite Lifestyle Cuisine is a gourmet health food company based out of New Jersey that delivers. All of the meals are prepared with calories, sodium, etc listed — while it’s not organic, they use low glycemic index carbs + small amounts of healthy fat. It’s perfect for those who want to eat clean but don’t have time to meal prep each day. We tried some meals recently, and the shrimp was yum! It comes frozen, but you can just plop it in a bowl, nuc for 5 minutes, and you’re in business. Easy way to eat clean when you’re on the go, that’s for sure.
