It’s Wednesday and I have much to report…

Follow my adventures in art, food, fitness, and everything else The D has to offer here on J’adore Detroit; and join me in real time on Instagram (@sarahwinters) and Snapchat (sarahewinters).

As far as porn goes, I find the real estate variety to be my favorite and Detroit’s Boston-Edison District does not disappoint. The home pictured here was one of my favorites and would be a great contender for a game I just invented called “French Chateau or No?”

Detroit proves to have a talent for producing one of my favorite things… A fantastic “grown-up milkshake”. I highly recommend the Salty Caramel Pretzel shake (add vanilla vodka) from Mercury Bar in Corktown and the Malted Maple Royale from Punchbowl Social in Downtown Detroit (pictured here). The latter arrives with a slice of candied bacon as a garnish, which is worth every.single.calorie.

Speaking of calories. With all this milkshake drinking and candied bacon eating, maintaining my workouts has been a must. I just added these great new workout pants from PHYSICLO to my wardrobe… they’re compression pants that have built-in resistance bands to increase muscle activity and calories burned – they were designed by an American Olympic medalist so they’re super legit.

Well, I love them! My hips, thighs and glutes felt super supported and my workout was definitely intensified, yet I was still comfortably able to move with full range of motion. My Nike compression leggings went straight into the donation bag. Not kidding.

Clearly I’m a sucker for a good mural. The Belt downtown, next to the Z Parking Deck, home to indoor/outdoor bar The Skip (hello frozen cocktails!) and cute restaurant Standby, offers many a photo opp with it’s bright colors and stairways to nowhere.
