Self Care Sundays
The Antidote - Your Weekly Remedy
The heat is scorching, the wine won’t stop pouring, and a new summer season is upon us! If, like the rest of us depraved individuals, you are greeting this Sunday morning with a raging hangover and foggy memories of describing, in detail, your life to your unwilling Uber driver, then this one's for you! Was it imperative that you volunteered to drink that last tequila shot that inevitably lead to your Saturday blackout? The answer is always yes.
This summer is all about natural, fresh faced looks, and what better way to kickstart your week then with a beautifying, relaxing Sunday routine. Last week, we covered facemasks, which, if you aren’t rocking one currently whilst reading this, stop immediately, apply, and come back. Good.
Now, the only thing more tragic than a hungover girly is a hungover girly who looks like roadkill. My personal favorite remedy? Aggressively moisturizing and depuffing the water-sockets better known as ‘eye bags’. As someone who looks like a human michelin man after literally one sip of alcohol, water retention and depuffing rituals are something i've become a bit of a savant at. Below, I breakdown the new Sunday habit you’ll seldom break. Sundays are for Jesus and depuffing.
Splash ice-cold water on your face for as long as necessary until you stop feeling like a naked mole rat and start triggering that molecule of serotonin you have left over.
Grab a face roller (jade, onyx, rose quartz, ice), whichever brand you prefer, and start sculpting those cheekbones, Kate! This should be a routine of no less than 2 minutes as you glide over the icey contours of your face and envision yourself without a headache that could take down a bear. (insert amazon face roller links)
Apply eye patches that you’ve (brilliantly) decided to store in the fridge and apply them beneath your eyes and on your smile lines! (insert patchology eye patches, smokey eye patches, and some other ones we like?)
Lay down, and feign amnesia because you don't need to be alone with your thoughts on a Sunday.
Upon completion, serum and moisturize your skin away, massaging the more swollen areas and you shall be as chiseled as a grecian sculpture!
Monday Mantra (Monday’s are a bitch, you don’t have to be)
Your Monday Mantra to start this week is:
“I attract love, light, and happiness everywhere I go!”
Book of the Week: Fifth Avenue, 5 am: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman
Hollywood glamour, history, and fashion weave a tangled web in this book about the making of the American classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Sam Wasson breaks down some of the most iconic moments in the film, Audrey Hepburn’s rise to mega-stardom, and a golden age of cinema that we hear only whispers of.
Love, scandal, drama, and intrigue abound as we embark on a journey into a world long gone: from the inception of the ‘little black dress’ to Hepburn fighting a whole studio, ensuring the brooding ‘Moon River’ stay in the film.
Song of the Week: Moon River- Henry Mancini
