“I’d been living in L.A. for the last year, and I felt like New York had such a need for a space where it can be just an oasis to take care of yourself,” said @cleanfooddirtycity of creating @clean.market, an upscale holistic wellness center in NYC. A market in the front of the shop sells a mix of clean beauty and skin products and apothecary-style items, while a cafe-style functional food and tonic bar is set up in the middle of the space, serving lattes and superfood smoothies.

“I started to realize I could also make my own decisions about how to move forward, and the events — as much as I love them — are an all-consuming part of what I was doing,” said @bettinaprentice of Prentice Cultural Communications, who’s worked with @google, @tiffanyandco, @bulgariofficial and more. Her decision to move her communications firm away from event production was met with shock in the industry upon announcement.

“We don’t fight because we are just friends and respectful of each other’s projects. Max is even producing my solo album...I think what keeps us together is five o’clock white wine time,” said singer/songwriter @iamalexwinston of working with friend @alexmaax on their new EP “Crown.” Together they make up pop duo @postprecious, and their new EP is inspired by Hershenow’s devotion to the gay dance party scene.
