November is upon us. Thanksgiving with my family is so special too me. A perfect hostess gift like a great bottle of Prosecco, cozy sweaters, and the best food.
My favorite things this month:
Choosing the perfect Hostess Gift. I like to bring a bottle of Prosecco for the party, and, to spoil my hostess, JAVA Skin Care products to enjoy the day after (we all know how stressful it can be to cook the turkey).
MACY’s Day Parade in New York City remains my family’s favorite holiday event. For years and years we have attended the parade…the kids are memorized by the floats. Truth be told so am!
We are thrilled to be chosen again this year to participate in the Made on Honor Market Event for Narragansett Beer on Nov 17&18 at The Guild, Pawtucket RI. This year’s event will be bigger than ever!
The Event will take over the entire campus at The Guild including the Brew House, Packaging Hall, Event Hall, and their brand new Beer Hall with over 65+ vendors. Join us for two full days of holiday shopping, meet the people behind some of OUR favorite brands, and of course, we’ll be drinking plenty of beer. Best part? This event is FREE and open to the public.
We admit we are soooo jealous hearing that several JAVA Tribe members (you!) and friends of JAVA made the pilgrimage to Oktoberfest this year.
Your JAVA team has attended from time to time and we are not exaggerating in ranking it among the top 3 parties in the world!
That being said, a couple days in the Lowenbrau, Paulaner or Augstiner tents will take its toll. Not just internally – you’ll never appreciate your morning coffee more than in Munich during Oktoberfest – but your skin too. Here are just a couple effects to expect with, ahem, a few more liters of beer than you’d normally drink:
1. Bags under the eyes
2. Dehydrated skin
3. Lowered antioxidant levels
4. Susceptibility to free radicals and sun damage (it’s only September and lots to do outside the tents too!)
These effects (and others) play right into the strengths of our signature Raw Coffee and Argan Oil infusion. Like literally – we tackle these problems daily.
So to stay looking splendid (fabelhaft) in Munich, use JAVA Eye Serum to restore the luster of the skin around the eyes. Serum is much more hydrating than any lotion you have in your bag, and up to 20 X more potent as an anti-oxidant than our cousins in the tea oil market. As a result, we (coffee oils…) go to town on free radicals and heal damaged skin quickly.
We hope to be there in 2019 with our healthy skin!
Fall is here in Narragansett Rhode Island and while we are known for our beaches October brings a whole new kind of beauty to the state. My favorite things to do to ring in this new season are:
- Watch the leaves change color – Just driving down the road can turn into zen moment.
- Visit a Pumpkin patch – The Farmer’s Daughter in South Kingstown is one of my favorite places to spend a fall afternoon. It is so beautiful this time of year!
- Picking Dalhias- My daughter’s beloved grandfather Papap was a prize winning dahlia grower and always had the most stunning garden. These flowers hold a special place in our hearts.
- Making the switch to hot coffee – There is nothing better then drinking a fresh brewed coffee on a crisp morning. Adding an apple cider donut is always a welcome treat (but don’t worry, I’m still working out with Jtab!)
A new fall experience I had recently was meeting up with Best of RI Blogger Patty J for a fun collab at Perfectly Nailed Salon in East Greenwich, RI. The owner- Jessica has put together a JAVA pedicure that is decadent. She invited Patty J and I for the afternoon and we were pampered to the max. Check out Patty Js blog and give Jessica or Bianca a call to schedule a JAVA pedicure for a special treat. It is a must do- if I say so myself- lol.
My go to product for October is our JAVA Body Wash. Seriously hydrating from the Raw Coffee & Argan oil infusion and Aloe Vera. All our ingredients are gentle to the skin so if you tend to dry out this time of year (like I do) our Bath Wash is a wonderful edition to your routine. But we don’t want you to smell like a cup of coffee (not that that is always a bad thing lol) so our bath wash is full of sweet almond which makes bath time a truly aromatic experience.

This is the time of year when I redirect my focus on wellness, self-care and exercise.
My favorite September things to do:
- Picking bouquets of sunflowers from a local farm
- Spending afternoons enjoying the lingering summer weather
- Getting back to my gym – but still spending time outdoors as much as the weather allows!
- Caring for my skin after exposure to the harsh summer sun and salt water
My go to product for September is JAVA Body Scrub. One area of my skin that I find suffers a lot during the summer weather is my decolletage. All of the things I love about summer’s at the ocean in Rhode Island – sun, salt water and high temperatures – lead to a less then smooth texture to the skin on my chest and neck more than at other seasons of the year. JAVA Body Scrub turns back the clock on crepey and aged looking skin, bringing me back to soft and supple.
