New Year, New You: Health and Beauty Detox Products for 2016

Doesn't Oprah's commercial for Weight Watchers make you want to sign up, like now, even if you don't need to lose weight?  Yaaaas, Oprah, let's make 2016 the year of our best body ever! We even got all teary-eyed.  That's the power of O.




We've tried Weight Watchers before and it really works.  But before we jump back on the point counting bandwagon to drop the ten pounds we picked up over the holidays, we want to detox from the inside out.  And Everything She Wants recently discovered several health and beauty products that will help create a new you in this new year:




Kick off the new year with Teami 30 Day Detox Pack ($49.99). The detox comes with a 30 day supply of Skinny loose-leaf tea and 15 colon cleanse tea bags.  When followed properly, Teami promises to boost your metabolism, burn stored fat, reduce bloating improve your complexion, and more. Take it from us, the colon cleanse tea bags are extremely effective.

Just like deodorant it's good to switch up your body wash from time to time.  And we love ArtNaturals Anti-Fungal Foot and Body Wash ($14.95). In addition to detoxing your pits, the tea tree-infushed wash helps to get rid of athlete's foot and nail fungus.




Get your essential vitamins on the go with Instavit vitamin sprays ($14.99).  They come in several varieties, including Vitamin D, Immune Strength and Vitamin B-12. No pills. No water. No hassle.

Use Lather Sea Kelp & Ginseng All-Over Mask ($18) all over your body, face and even in your hair. The ginseng and sea kelp extracts draw out impurities while restoring lost moisture, and sea algae oil is added for its natural anti-aging and antioxidant properties.  Aloe vera is another active ingredient that will soothe sunburned skin.

Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask ($56) will save you a lot of money on costly spa facials.  This gel to foam brightening mask contains vitamins C and E, and grape seed extract to revitalize dull skin and give it a radiant, youthful glow. We used the mask before we went to the gym and it really opened our pores. Our skin felt super fresh after our Zumba workout.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Graces Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 4-9, 2024

Dance is expression. Dance is spiritual. Dance is activism. Dance is life. I feel most alive when I am listening to music and dancing.  As a spectator and fan, some of my fondest moments of watching dance performances have been witnessing the dignity and grace of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Every time I see the Ailey company, I am inspired, moved, and grounded in the beauty and complexity of the African American experience.  Photo by Paul Kolnik For me, the highlight is always "Revelations," Mr. Ailey's three-part ode to his upbringing in the Black Baptist church. The three sections -- "Pilgrim of Sorrow"; "Take Me to the Water"; and "Move, Members, Move" -- tell the story of African American faith and persistence from slavery to freedom. Over the weekend,  I had the pleasure of taking an outdoor Community Workshop in downtown Brooklyn, where we learned some of the choreography for "Revelations." I beamed from ear to ear
