Today’s post is written by the staff at Hysteria.
We love summer at Hysteria – hearing about and helping our clients shop for beautiful summer vacations, getting up, maybe, just a little later in the morning; and getting outside as often as possible to walk, shop, and dine al fresco in beautiful Old Town. It’s the best!
As the season is upon us, here are a few of our favorite summertime tips – and some of our favorite things about being at Hysteria:
Juliet: my summer favorites include 1) drinking a beautiful chilled rosé (especially my favorite “monogrammed” one!) – and right now, you can take the rosé to the next level in the all pink ROSÉ GARDEN AT WHALEY’S (at the Navy Yard) 2) best summer sunscreen ever: La Roche-Posay, Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid – it goes on light and it’s a great “non-sticky” way to protect your skin 3) and last, but not least, to feel good inside and out: I go for 100 Studio Barre classes to get bikini ready!
Kate: I love Hysteria because of the unique selection of apparel and accessories that you *literally* cannot get anywhere else.
Plus, I really enjoy the satisfaction of supporting a small business that helps drive our community and local economy. My favorite summer tip: like Juliet, I am a big fan of rosé – and I like to take it up a notch by putting fresh berries in a sparkling version. So girly and delicious!
Suzanne: Favorite thing to do in the summer? Take a day trip to a local vineyard. Top of my list is: Three Fox Vineyards – I love that it’s a smaller more intimate venue, it’s truly a hidden gem…and did I mention it’s dog friendly? What I love about Hysteria is that I get to work with such wonderful clients season after season. Hysteria is a great place to shop if you’re looking for unique finds, but you don’t want to “break the bank”. When you visit our store, you
are sure to find fun jewelry, on trend pieces, and practical essentials you can wear again and again.
Brittany: Hysteria is a great place to shop this summer as the store is the best place to find a necklace that completes any outfit and one that you will be wearing all season. Favorite (summer or anytime) tip: de-clutter your closet every season with this one question: “If I were shopping right now, would I buy this?” If the answer is, “no”, get rid of it!
Nina: In summer I love to “get a glow on”. I wish I could say that this comes naturally to me, but sadly, this is not the case! To get a good glow going, my favorite products are L’Oréal® True Match Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator and Paris Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion. I put the Liquid Glow Illuminator under my makeup / under my concealer – below and in the inner corners of my eyes, and in the “marionette lines” of my face. By putting it under the concealer, the glow comes through without looking too obvious. I put the self-tanner lotion on top of my makeup and down my neck to the décolletage area. Result: instant tan and glow whether you’ve been outside…or not.
What I love about Hysteria? The semi-annual buying trips with my sister, Suzanne, to NYC. It’s quality time for us, and even though the trade show process is exhausting, we make it fun, and nothing beats our “wine time” on the train home!
