Jennie Fresa’s cozy spa housed in an 18th century cape in Clinton is one of my favorite gift destinations. I can pick up a Stila all-in-one makeup kit for my daughter, Lollia’s fabulous candles for friends, Tata Harper’s resurfacing mask for me AND get my brows tamed in one stop! Jennie offers treatments ranging from makeup applications and lash extensions to private spray tanning in serene surroundings and her brand new Blow Dry Bar is all the buzz. But this visit I got sidetracked by lipstick! Jennie has launched her very own mineral-based makeup collection (no pthalates or other nasty ingredients you don’t want on your skin) and I scooped up a perfect sheerish and soothing Tea Rose tint. Did I mention I just love it here? jenniefresa.com
p.s. while in the neighborhood, stop next door at The White Dress by The Shore and pick up a copy of owner Beth Chapman’s stunning new book for every bride-to-be: The White Dress in Color. And take 10% off all that sparkles (gowns, veils, accessories) until 12/28.
