I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on the weekend. Why? Frankly, it’s because I’ve not really found anything that I am really passionate about. TODAY, I have a few people, places, items and events I think are worth a visit this weekend.
Functionlab Beauty Nutrition:
This is my new product obsession. I know that the weather is trying to get warmer, but most importantly, you may be trying to get into your wedding dress. I hope, you are doing it safely. That means exercise and good nutrition. If you are on some crash diet – STOP, and go to Functionalab’s outpost at Henri Bendel’s. You can’t miss them; they are in the front window. Our friends from Canada have created several products that contain the right balance of vitamins and minerals that can change your body from the inside out. We are talking about beautiful hair, nails, skin overall health and yes…even help you with your diet. Of course they maintain that you should also follow a well balanced diet, and exercise. So go and fill out their quick survey and speak with a nutritionist while you’re there.
The bonus – if you purchase more than $50 (between now and June 11), you will get a ‘free nutrient tonic (think Red Bull only healthy). I’m actually in the process of interviewing their Director of Nutrition and Training and will have that interview shortly, but don’t you wait. Your body, your health, and a better you are all waiting. Henri Bendel – 720 Fifth Avenue
