Winter weather has officially struck NYC, and we’re trying to prevent our skin from doing it’s annual “WTFFFFF” freak out. We’re jumpstarting one of our resolutions for 2017 (yes, we have conjoint resolutions) which is to use more all natural products. In the land of skincare, we’ve fallen for Rhode Island based brand, Farmaesthetics. Behold two of our current fav products:

Deep Lavender Rub – perfect for muscle tension or sinus relief. The scent is out of this world, and great to rock you to sleep.

Nutrient Dense Fine Facial Oil – perfect to layer onto a clean face before bed. Nine beauty oils combined to build tone and texture.

Farmaesthetics has so many products, plus some awesome gift sets, like THIS on the go travel set. Join us in saying goodbye to chemicals, and hello to farm fresh herbs, flowers, oils, and grains.

Halloween makeup inspiration from Nicole Quinn, of Ms Quinn Face.

It’s Friday afternoon on Halloween weekend. Let me guess, you have no clue what to wear! Have no fear. We’re avid followers of the @MsQuinnFace Instagram account, however October is our favorite month to peruse her feed for creative halloween makeup ideas.

If you’re like us, you don’t particularly want to go buy a crappy $80 plastic costume. DIY is obviously the way to go. You don’t even have to be anything in particular! Here are a few of our favorite artistic lipstick looks to rock this weekend. Consider being Charlotte’s Web with the spiderweb lipstick. Or maybe a spooky doll with her spiral lips. Bust out your eyeliner and lipstick, and follow MsQuinnFace’s lead!

Metamorphosis Day Spa – City Escape

Metamorphosis Day Spa – 127 East 56th Street

Fashion Month has officially come and gone, and before we get back to business as usual, there’s always something that calls out to us… a spa day. We found Metamorphosis Day Spa, and agreed a couple’s massage would only be fitting. We’re business partners, best friends, roommates, and probably domestic partners… would you expect anything less?

To celebrate the conclusion of Fashion Week, we wanted to find a serene spa with top quality masseurs. We hate to sound ungrateful, but we’ve both had our fair share of iffy massages. Maybe you’re in some basement on a busy street in Manhattan, and hear the rumble of a subway passing by. Maybe you’re laying on a wobbly massage table that creaks with every movement. Maybe the walls are so thin you listen to the chit chat in the lobby.

Visit Metamorphosis Spa in NYC if you’re looking for a real escape from city stress. The spa is cozy, secluded, serene, and sincerely two of the best massages we’ve had. We highly recommend David and Ingrid! These are the types of therapists that ask you what aches, and advise you afterwards on how to properly stretch that area. Their massage products smell divine, and the music setting is just right. CLICK HERE to peruse their extensive and unique services list.
