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

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . 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 New York City, 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 white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t

SEE Eyewear Opens a New Brooklyn Store

Whoever said guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses hasn't  seen SEE Eyewear . The eclectic eyewear brand offers fashionable yet affordable prescription and non-prescription  eyeglasses  and sunglasses.  SEE stocks a limited quantity of each pair of its unique glasses (about 80), so you probably won't run  into another subway rider rocking the same specs.  Recently, SEE opened a new store in the hipster-hangout  Williamsburg  section of Brooklyn and  Everything She Wants  got a sneak peek.  The new Brooklyn store is located on Bedford Avenue and Everything She Wants readers will receive a 20 percent discount in-store with the code "BEDFORDAVE."  I was gifted my first pair of designer reading glasses with no-glare lenses to protect me from eye-straining computer use.  There are so many cool styles, it was hard to pick just one. But I narrowed my favorites down to three, and ultimately selected a chic pair of cat eye, tortoise shell frames. I can
