  giveaway : Haven Grand Opening

Hello CLE, how’s your week going? Super busy over here, with work, spring social planning, prepping for a warm weather escape and gearing up for the arrival of this weekend’s holiday bunny visit, let’s just say when people say there is “nothing to do in Cleveland” you gotta laugh at them!


  The Movement Factory

It’s Thursday workout day here at iheartclev. I’ve packed my clothes and am headed to the gym after work to jump on the cycle bike and rock out with some other fabulous CLE ladies; can’t wait!

Today I want to introduce you to a little gem of a fitness studio that just opened in Lakewood. The Movement Factory was founded by dancer, pilates instructor and fitness guru Alyssa Lee Wilmot. While she is small in stature Alyssa can kick your butt…hard (speaking from experience.) The studio is clean and bright with large windows to letting lots of natural light. During my booty boot camp class, I really enjoyed the ballet barre part of class over looking Lakewood’s’ Madison Park a nice view while your calves burn to death. Alyssa has all new shiny equipment, awesome taste in tunes and is overall an inspiration to all of us. Get healthy, have fun and inspire others! MORE! →

  An Arts Weekend!

WOW, where did all this snow come from? Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but from what I heard the roads were a real bummer for some of our commuters.

Anyhow, back to business…it’s and ART weekend in CLEVELAND and I couldn’t be more jazzed to get out and explore.

First up is tonight’s opening of the new Transformer Station located in Ohio City (next to the Cleveland Vibrator Company…tee hee.) The Transformer Station is a project presented by the Bidwell Foundation in association with the Cleveland Museum of Art bringing contemporary art from around the world to the west side of Cleveland.


  Burntwood Tavern : opening

hello Cleveland & happy Friday.

So much to do this weekend from yard work cleanup to the big Cleveland Magazine “Best Of” Party, a trip to the Westside Market an awesome girlie clothing shop with other fellow CLE bloggers, a wedding reception of friends and to wrap it up…GO Brownies! How does your weekend look? Gotta love fall in Ohio, it’s seriously beautiful!

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending opening day of the new Rocky River location of the new Burntwood Tavern (in the old Pub location at Beachcliff Market Square.) I was overly impressed of the space makeover…good bye uncomfortable throne chairs, hello gas fireplace, Good bye British replica art and hello locally resourced barn wood and unique handmade light fixtures.

While the space is stunning the food on the menu is JUST as yummy. From pumpkin ravioli to yummy lunch combos of soup, salad and half sandwiches. This place has something for everyone, plus it is very reasonably priced overall. The bar looks well stocked with plenty of bottles of wine and good unique beers on tap. I think this new space is going to do well, like the Deagan’s of Rocky River.

Their opening meet and greet is this Saturday night, swing by to check it out. I’d love to hear your feedback, enjoy!

  Stash Style Sale

This weekend marks the inaugural Stash Style home SALE. If you remember, this past April, my friend closed her Chagrin Falls Store to look for a new way of doing business..hence the sale events were born.

Join her this Friday evening for the kick off preview sale (including live music under an evening rain-proof tent!) from 5-9pm and the official sale Saturday from 10-5 at her urban-chic Rocky River Home located at 780 Bates Road. Shop till you drop!

Can’t make it this weekend but would like to be notified of future sales? Drop a note to
