FASHIONABLE FLIP-FLOPPING: What right-minded, platform-wearing woman would be caught wearing flats – or (gasp) flip flops for that matter? Well, if they had that adorable Hermes logo, perhaps we'd be willing to make a cameo appearance exception. In neutral or black calfskin, the newbies (priced at a not-bad-for-Hermes $330) prove that you can still be dressed to the nines at all times, even on your way back from the beach.
BRUSH UP: Makeup brushes are like a pair of perfectly worn denim: Once you have ones you love, you never want to part with them. Get your paws on some stellar brushes and learn a few makeup tips in the process at Sonia Roselli. Her new brushes are made of super soft hair for an airbrushed look. If you book and pre-pay for a makeup lesson, you’ll receive a free professional brush set (a $375 value, we might add). Book before July 15th and receive 2 additional brushes for free.
YOGALICIOUS: If you have been hankering for a yoga fix but can’t drop the dollars, it’s your lucky day. At Exhale Spa you can experience a week of yoga and core fusion classes for only $40.
