Renew, Refresh and Revive . . . .

Cheek is Chic

“Beauty is self-confidence applied directly to your face.” This is the mantra behind Rouge NY, a makeup salon located in the vibrant neighborhoods of SoHo and the Upper East Side. Started by actress Stephanie March and makeup artist Rebecca Perkins (who met on the set of Law & Order: SVU), Rouge NY is dedicated to providing women with the experience of having a beautiful, professional makeup application done in a relaxing environment. To put it best, the dynamic duo says “This is about you, this is for you. It’s the place you go to make wherever you go next an exceptional experience.”


The health craze has seeped into home delivery services, with companies delivering fresh food, ready-made meals and meals to be made readily. But how about those of us looking for liquids? Enter the brainchild of Jenna Tanenbaum and Amir Cohen, creators and cofounders of Green Blender, whose smoothie delivery service comes right to your doorstep. Sourced from the highest quality ingredients from organic, local and urban farms, Green Blender’s motto is, simply put, “You are what you drink.” Packed with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, proteins and fiber, their smoothies deliver benefits such as clearer skin, mental clarity and increased energy. Skip the cocktails and have a customer favorite, Persimmon Mango. Can anyone say “Down the hatch?”


Kusmi Tea, headquartered in Paris, France, was established in 1867 in St. Petersburg Russia, but it wasn’t until 1917 that the company relocated to France. Now, Kusmi Tea is available across the globe, and continues to put out a wide variety of blended and flavored teas, (think spicy chocolate, mango, rose and pink pepper) and they are unparalleled in their blending expertise, not to mention their preservation and use of the original blends from the 1870s. Beautifully packaged, wrapped in muslin and stitch closed with thread, each bag is a work of art in and of itself. If there was ever a time for “high tea,” it is now.
