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 just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!
I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
