Slow Down in September

Slow Down

If work or school has you stressed, relax using our ideas. You deserve a break every once in a while. The Marketplace at Fells Point Blog has everything you need to let go of your worries for a stress-free evening in your Baltimore, MD apartment.

Chocolate

Sometimes all you really need to relax is a delicious dessert. We are featuring two of our favorite chocolate desserts below.

Salted Caramel Fudge from The Recipe Critic

This salted caramel fudge combines two of our favorite treats. It’s made with milk chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, caramels, heavy cream, and sea salt. We recommend sharing a batch of these chocolates with your friends.

Nutella Stuffed Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie from Cafe Delites

This recipe takes the skillet cookie (the pizookie) to the next level. The rich, Nutella layer makes this recipe a decadent, amazing treat. We recommend serving this recipe up with a scoop of your favorite brand of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.

Spa

Turn your Marketplace at Fells Point apartment into a spa. Basin is our go-to place for bath bombs, milk baths, facials, and natural soaps. Visit their website to pick up their bamboo charcoal soap, their calamine calming soap, or another one that piques your interest.

Yoga

Yoga is a great way to relax and unwind after a long day of work. Reviews.com has a great list of the best yoga mats on the market. Want to learn the basics? You don’t have to go to a yoga studio in the city to learn how to do downward-facing dog or the four-limbed staff pose. The New York Times has an excellent resource for beginners, Yoga for Everyone.

Book

Reading is good for your mind and health, so make time this month to make it a priority. Whether you’re looking for something interesting to browse through before bed or something to help you learn about others, there’s an option for you that could change your life. Here’s our suggestion:

The Short Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald: A New Collection

“Today F. Scott Fitzgerald is better known for his novels, but in his own time, his fame rested squarely on his prolific achievement as one of America's most gifted writers of stories and novellas. Now, a half-century after the author's death, the premier Fitzgerald scholar and biographer, Matthew J. Bruccoli, has assembled in one volume the full scope of Fitzgerald's best short fiction: forty-three sparkling masterpieces, ranging from such classic novellas as ‘The Rich Boy,’ ‘May Day,’ and ‘The Diamond as Big as the Ritz’ to his commercial work for the Saturday Evening Post and its sister ‘slicks.’

“For the reader, these stories will underscore the depth and extraordinary range of Fitzgerald's literary talents.”

How do you relax after a long day at work or school? Let us know in the comments. Thanks for reading our post. We hope you have a great month here in Baltimore, MD!
