With Valentine's Day behind us, I thought it would be a great time to focus on you. It is easy getting caught up in the whirlwind of taking care of others, whether your children, spouse, friends or family. In turn, I wanted to take this post as an opportunity to share different ways you can treat yourself.
Grab A Book
Turn off your phone and find a place where you can be alone, from a quiet place in your home to a coffee shop to a bookstore to even a library. Yes, the latter still exist. Pick a book from a genre that will allow you to let go - maybe grab a juicy romance novel or a spooky mystery novel. If you need to, set a timer or an alarm to ensure you don't have to keep checking your phone. Take this as an opportunity to disconnect and enjoy the moment.
Enjoy The Spa
This may seem cliché when talking about ways to treat yourself but there is something special about pampering yourself with a spa treatment. If you can, make your appointment at a spa where you can also have access to a sauna. This way, you can maximize the experience, and you'll walk out glowing!
Be A Tourist
How often have you had friends come visit, they are naming off local sites and you end up admitting you haven't ever been there? It does often seem the closest places to us we take for granted or keep thinking we will visit. So, why not take this as an opportunity to be a tourist in your own city. Go to a museum or a restaurant or a historical site that you have been too busy to enjoy or see. Let yourself get lost in your own city. I'm certain you'll be surprised what else you will discover.
It may be hard to do, but try and carve out time for you in the coming days. And, sometimes it's just about turning off the phone and being in the moment. Some of my best downtime is when I workout because the phone is off, and I try to stay in the moment. Whatever you choose to do, enjoy it.
P.S. Did you know Adea offers lingerie? Yes, they do! A great base layer against your skin means that's one less thing to worry about when you are focusing on you.

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.
On November 1, 2019, I decided to visit MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues to see the final result of this stupendous project that opened for all to see on October 21st. Frankly, I was amazed at the number of people who showed up. After all, it was a Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm. People should be at work – or at school I thought. Or, was it because this was the day after Halloween? Obviously, I’m a bit out of it because MoMA was like Times Square on New Year’s Eve – but not quite. Everyone was very well behaved and incredibly focused and interested in the art.
On Tuesday, October 8, 2019 – the first day of Yom Kippur – we headed out to our favorite Kips Bay Theatre (2nd Avenue and 31st Street) for a 6:20 pm showing of Downton Abbey. Kips Bay currently has a terrific deal: If one signs up for an “Insider” card (it’s free) you can see a first run movie at any time during the day or night on Tuesdays for $6.00 – which is pretty incredible. Or, paraphrasing The Godfather, I’d say, “That’s an offer we couldn’t refuse.”
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
