  2. Get your spring on

    Natural beauty tips and how to kick start your Spring

    #1) For long and strong hair: Castor oil and Rosemary oil mask.

    Your hair always grows the fastest in the spring. Castor oil will get your hair growing even quicker, you can use it on its own or add 3 drops of rosemary oil to give it a boost. Warm up some castor oil, you can add some coconut oil too. Add 3 drops of rosemary oil. Place it all over your roots and spread out the remainder throughout hair. Wrap your hair in a plastic wrap and leave it in for an hour. Wash it out with shampoo and conditioner. Repeat 1-2 times per week. You can also add 2 drops of rosemary oil to your shampoo when you wash to get healthier hair.

    #2) Damaging hair habits to avoid

    Dry shampoo that’s not made with natural products, don’t use it often or avoid it and brush it out as it clogs hair follicles which can lead to hair loss. If you have to blow dry your hair, wait until your hair is 80% dry, always towel dry first. Avoid high heat, ponytails and flatirons when you can! Keep those as exceptions for special nights out, NOT a daily habit.

    #3) For hair, skin and nails: Supplements

    Collagen, collagen, collagen! Add powdered collagen to your everyday supplements. Your hair will look healthy and beautiful. It’s also good for your skin and nails. Use the bovine vs. marine form if you also want it to help with joint pain.

    #4) Spring Cleaning!

    Clean in and out. Do a little detox and give your liver a break. Supplement with some Milk Thistle to support your liver as you do this. Clean out your closets, clean out your cupboards, take your car for a nice car wash. Purge and donate! Let go of the old winter junk and you will feel liberated. It’s an important step to a fresh start. Declutter your home and it’ll declutter your mind.

    Take in the much-needed sun and get your vitamin D, even 15 minutes a day, pull your sleeves up and let some sun in! Enjoy the spring fresh air!

  3. NYC Hangouts

     New York is a great place to live, work and play. We love it so much we thought we would share our favorite hangouts with you.

    There is nothing better than strolling through the streets of West Village and popping in and out of all the wonderful boutiques. Each store facade is charming in its own unique way. You can find popular brands and new emerging designers all on the same block!

     

     Hit the courts and get your sweat on at Randall’s Island. This is a great facility and easily accessible from Manhattan. The boutique is our go-to one stop shop for all things tennis – and of course they carry L’Etoile Sport.

     

     Why take a regular yoga class when you can spice it up with a hip hop flavor.  New York offers so many different takes on your average workouts and we are elated to find this gem.

     Favorite place to eat? That’s a trick question. However, we are currently loving Avra. The delicious greek cuisine with an emphasis on seafood is every bit as beautiful as it is delectable. Everything on the menu is made with such care we cannot wait to go back for more.

     

     If you haven’t had crack coffee then you have been missing out. This delicious energy boosting coffee from HU Kitchen is our favorite cup in town. Whoever thought grass fed butter and coffee would pair so well.
