Before every Cuban wedding I attend—and being a Miami girl, I’ve attended my fair share—I always swear that I’m going to take salsa lessons to prep for the occasion. In my defense, I can hold my own on the dance floor, but there really is no method to my madness. I normally swirl and twirl as directed by whoever my dance partner might be and I always remember to smile. Well, taking salsa lessons was one of my New Year’s resolutions and, thanks to an email I received from TheDealist.com this week, I’m going to cross that task off my list soon.
“Something Great to Do,” is the tagline for TheDealist.com, a free, daily email newsletter for bargain-loving New Yorkers. My future salsa class—pole dancing is also being offered in case I change my mind—at Zack’s Dance Loft is normally $40, but I paid only $25. Much like the other offer this week—$59 for four classes at Pilates on Fifth—the site gives you great excuses to get off the couch and start tackling your New Year’s resolutions.
Not only is this site great for fitness fiends but it also caters to beauty junkies. Past offers have included a $99 Brazilian Waxing package at Boom Boom Beauty Bar, a $79 Body and Head Massage at Fine Living New York Ayurvedic, and $25 Hot Shaves and Haircuts from New York Shaving Co.

CND announced the winner of it first-ever online Nail Style Competition. Anna Nelson from Fairfield, CA, won an all-expenses paid trip to New York City’s Fall Fashion Week this February to meet CND co-founder Jan Arnold and shadow nail professionals backstage. For her winning look, Nelson incorporated CND’s Colour Effects using a combination of Oilslick, Ice Blue Shimmer, and Sapphire Sparkle to create a wild animal print nail. “It was a very difficult talk to select finalists from the large pool of talent,” says Arnold. “We ultimately based our judging on layering, design work, and unique execution, and Anna’s nail style exhibited all of these winning traits.”
