7 New Year’s Eve Essentials


New Year’s Eve — it’s the most glamorous time of the year! Sparkles, champagne, midnight kisses, more champagne… At Haven, our spa and boutique have everything to help you add glam to your holiday evening — or any evening — instantly. And on New Year’s Eve Day, you can come into the spa for a 30-minute mini-makeover with some of these holiday essentials — call to reserve your spot today!:


gleambodyrandiance1501. Body Sparkle – The twinkling lights of New Year’s Eve don’t have to be the only thing sparking that night. Gleam Body Radiance by Melanie Mills of Hollywood elevates body glitter to a subtle art form: it’s a revolutionary all-in-one make up, moisturizer & glow for body and face! Gleam — which is transfer-resistant, non-staining, and non-streaking — comes in shades for every skin tone. But every skin tone can use each shade for a different end result: choose one close to your own skin tone for sheer coverage with a healthy glow or deepen the skin tone and create a natural sun kissed glow.


blinkofasmokyeye1502. Smoky Eyes — If any evening calls for a dramatic, smoky eye, New Year’s Eve is it! Create yours with Jane Iredale‘s “In the Blink of a Smoky Eye” Kit. These eight blendable shades of highly pigmented PurePressed Eye Shadow will create a long-lasting, crease-resistant finish. It comes with a mirrored compact great for late night touch-ups.


eyelashextensions3. Eyelash Extensions — Enhance your smoky eyes with extra long lashes that need no mascara! Our certified professionals will adhere individual lashes to your existing ones to create the look you desire, from natural to dramatic. We also offer lash and brow tinting that make the daily necessity of mascara and pencils a thing of the past! Call to make an appointment.


lipcrayons1504. Moisturizing Lipstick —  Be ready for your midnight kiss with Playon Lip Crayons by Jane Iredale. You’ll have smooth, kissable lips drenched in moisture and tinted with irresistibly playful color. The creamy formula glides on and stays on. Shades include “Charming” and “Hot”, which is appropriate for New Year’s Eve, no?


josanearings 5. Dangly Earrings — We carry a selection of beautiful silver and gold earrings in different shapes and design by Josen, a small family jewelry business located in the Shawangunk Mountains of upstate New York. The earrings are delicate, lightweight, and free of lead, nickel, and cadmium. They’ll be swinging with you on the dance floor all night long!


bixbybar1506. Chocolate — After an evening of indulging in champagne, you’ll need a little pick-me-up to make it past midnight. But not just any pick-me-up: how about an American-made, organic, vegan-friendly chocolate bar packed with fiber, protein and the best quality ingredients available? Bixby Bars have 3 to 4 times less sugar than other chocolate bars, more protein than most protein bars, and absolutely NO high fructose corn syrup, preservatives or additives. Which means you can enjoy this candy bar without feeling guilty. Now if only Bixby made champagne.


clutch1507. A Good Clutch — You’ll need something stylish to carry around your credit card, cash for the bartender, makeup and snack bar. Try one of these shiny patent leather clutches from City Designs. Each has a removable (or hide-able) gold chain for convenience.


Remember, all of the above are available in our Spa Boutique this season. Stop by and pick up some for yourself, or as a gift for someone glam! And if you can’t make it in, you can always get an online Haven Gift Certificate any time, day or night, that can be used in the Boutique!

5 Fun Ways to Make the Freezing Cold Fashionable

It’s going to be a long, cold winter — here’s how to look good getting through it! You can find all of these items in our Haven Boutique at the spa, whether as a gift for yourself or a fashionable friend:

hat1. Invest in a fabulous hat. Your first instinct in the winter is to splurge on a pair of boots or a coat, while your noggin often gets short shrift. But that’s the first thing people notice about you! So rather than rely on your jacket’s hood, take the time to find something you really love. After all, you’ll be living in it for at least the next two months! Haven’s got a great selection of stylish hats, including this series of flower bucket ones shown here (only $24!).

shawls2. Become a layering pro. Not only will it keep you warm in the cold months to come, but it will keep you on trend! Your personality is multi-layered — your wardrobe should be too this season! In our Spa Boutique, we’re featuring a luxurious line of fur-trimmed infinity scarves (shown here) which can double as shawls ($106). So don’t get caught chilly, whether you’re indoors or out!

scarf3. Experiment with scarves. Scarves can be worn in many more ways than simply wrapped around your neck, and winter is the perfect time to experiment. We love the retro look of a scarf tied around your headbelted on top of a jacket, or even tied in a knot around your shoulders. This season, we’re carrying a wide selection of soft scarves to help you do that, including this cozy maroon one from Honore in Paris ($55).

furvest4. Embrace fur or faux fur. One of the few fashion benefits of really cold weather is the chance to wear fur — or faux fur, of course. You can wear it with just about anything to give your outfit an instant upgrade: invest in a statement fur topper, throw on a fur vest like the show-stopping rabbit-fur one we’re featuring in our Boutique (shown here), put a fur stole over your winter coat to give it some new life, or find cool accent pieces like fur collars or even fur mittens to give your winter outfits instant glam.

handwarmers5. Try handwarmers. You’re on the go this season, dashing through the snow, in and out of doors — you want to stay warm but you need quick access to your keys, your lipstick, your keyboard, your phone…  As long as your day plans don’t include a snowball fight, fingerless gloves are fashionable way to stay cozy without giving up convenience. We’ve got a whole bowl in our Spa Boutique filled with Nirvana Knit Handwarmers (pictured here) in various colors and textures ($35).

Stop by our Spa Boutique anytime to run your hands over all these soft and cozy cold-weather accessories — they make great gifts for yourself or loved ones! And if you can’t make it in, just purchase an online gift certificate for the appropriate amount and make your product suggestion to your gift-recipient in the personalized note field.
