10 Reasons Why Digital Cameras Aren't Going Anywhere
In today’s day and age, we are all obsessed with taking photos that are aesthetically pleasing and sharing them on social media. Our smartphones are our best friends and professional selfie capturers; and in a world of pop-up Instagram spots, what more do we need? Photography aficionados will tell you that you don’t get the same result without a camera, but if you were like me, you might be thinking something like, What do I even need a digital camera for these days? The truth is though, you really cannot do everything on a phone that you can on a camera; therefore, real cameras remain relevant. Professional photographers are not the only ones who need real cameras; photography as a hobby is more popular than ever, and if you are a beginner photographer, you can still benefit from a good camera.

Bikram Yoga for Mindfulness and Strength
Bikram yoga is a form of hot yoga consisting of 26 postures, including two breathing exercises. The room is heated to 104 degrees, intended to create a better work out. Typically, classes are 90 minutes. Each time you practice, anywhere in the world, these postures are the same. I like to imagine that if I ever make it to India or Bali, I will be able to practice yoga without speaking the language. It brings people together in this unique way. When you enter the yoga studio there is a sense of peace, and nobody speaks inside the room, except the instructor.
Andy Warhol Exhibit at the Whitney Museum Review
There has been a lot of buzz around the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Whitney Museum, and the reveal did not disappoint. A few weekends ago, my boyfriend and I went to visit the exhibit. We went on a Friday afternoon, and the museum was just the right amount of crowded, but one can assume it might not be as relaxing on a Saturday or Sunday. I love a good museum date. The Whitney has a great location, right next to the Highline and Standard Biergarten—where you can grab a drink or even some lunch at their restaurant, making it an ideal location for a date or day with a friend. The gallery has several balconies where visitors can step outside and take in the view. Since it was an unusually warm day in February, we decided to have lunch outside at the Standard Biergarten (the burger was amazing). Anyway, I’m getting a little away from the point. The price of adult admission is $25. It runs until March 31. I would recommend getting there before you miss it!
