Arts & Crafts Festival, NYSEA, Coffee [A Busy Weekend in Long Beach]

The Arts and Crafts Festival @ Riverside Boardwalk is happening this weekend. 9pm to 6pm both Saturday & Sunday. Over 300 vendors and many local ones, including Get BeautifiedArdenDesigns.

NYSEA: NY Surf week is still going on, although the waves are looking kinda small and choppy, so who knows if any competition will happen Saturday or Sunday. Still, lots of fun stuff happening, so check out NYSEA online for more info and schedule: www.nysea.com/nysurfweek

Coffee: Newsday Reports that Gentle Brew (151 E. Park Ave) is FINALLY opening Saturday, July 14th: Gentle Brew moves to Long Beach:

[quote]The new shop has pastries, seats, regular hours. (5:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekends). Coffee is still the main event, though, with everything roasted on the premises. In addition to pulled espresso drinks, you can have your joe dripped, auto-dripped or cold brewed.[/quote]


Beauty and the Beach – Skin Care Tips

Spending time on Long Beach, whether strolling the boardwalk or walking the shoreline is great for the soul. Vitamin D and a bit of color enhancement for our skin adds to our sense of relaxation & renewal.

So, if you are a local Long Beacher, or out for the day, here are a couple of helpful skin care tips. After a day of fun in the ocean’s salt water and hot sun, be sure to replenish natural oils depleted from your skin. Use hydrating soap when showering after a day at the beach. Soaps containing emollients like olive oil, hemp oil and organics will replenish your protective layers. If you forgot your SPF and fried a bit, try an aloe soother after your shower. Keep frozen cubes of pure aloe vera for instant sunburn relief. Pure aloe gel is available at Bob’s Natural Foods on Park Avenue.

Personally, as much as I love the look of a great tan, I don’t touch the sand without a beach umbrella in hand. We now have boardwalk vendors renting umbrellas ($13) and lounge chairs ($8 each) so visitors don’t have to lug them from home. I can see by all the royal blue dots on the sand from a distance how many daily visitors appreciate the convenience!

For complimentary skin care analysis, or to see an Eyelash Extension application demo, please visit Get Beautified Eyelash Extension & Facial Spa at the Long Beach Arts & Craft Fair. The fair is on Saturday & Sunday, July 14th and 15th from 9am-6pm.

Have a great summer.
