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 been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”
Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.
In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
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.
